President Obama is shifting the focus of the FBI from counter terrorism work to fraud. This is in response to a backlog of 530 active corporate fraud investigations. I am all for investigation fraud. Perhaps, Obama could have them look into how he got such a sweetheart deal on his house in Chicago. He should look into all those high profile Democrats that seem to avoid paying their fair share of the tax burden. Of course, He will never do that. Instead, they will look into the cases that have come to light as a result of the economic meltdown. I am all for doing that. Banking criminals should got to jail just the same as other criminals. However, I don't want to shift the focus from counter terrorism. Our safety is first. Barack Obama should have had the Democrats drop some of the pork from the stimulus bill and pay for overtime for FBI agents to look into fraud. Just cutting the $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts would have paid for a lot of fraud investigation. Instead, President Obama is sacrificing our national safety. This shows where his priorities are placed.
When the attack happens, it will be interesting to see how it is blamed on Bush...
Obama wants the FBI to investigate fraud?
What is he, nuts? (Yes, I know the answer to that)
Fine. Let them investigate fraud. Start with Rezko and Obama in Chicago.
There’s enough fraud there to put Obama in lockup for years.
Demonize the marketplace ... How about we investigate Democrat tax cheats, there seems to be ahuge crop out there.
He is a dictator. What else would he be concerned about? Not national security!
Ohhhh goody! They can start by investigating voter fraud....by ACORN. ;-)
They will find a way. Ironically, a whole lot of fraud victims are victims because they were looking for something for nothing, or at least a better deal than common sense would support, like Madoff’s victims.
Fraud is a serious crime but, I don’t recall ever fearing a fraudster would nuke my hometown.
I wish that were so! Unfortunately this is just another front in the war on capitalism and corporations.
ACORN, our new and beloved masters!
The mantra is “THERE IS NO TERRORISM, THERE IS NO TERRORISM”
I wonder what date in the next four years will now take it’s place next to December 7th and 9/11?
After what the Princes of Wall Street have accomplished is there really any reason why the nutbars need to nuke us? Seriously, have you seen Detroit lately? Nuking it is not the worst thing that could happen there. Leaving it in the hands of the Democrats is.
"Chloe, I'm being chased by the FBI; I need an escape route."
"Jack, you gotta keep going straight but throw some gum at them. They can't chew and run after you at the same time."
Yes....I know. Eventually....and I SEE the signs already....Americans are going to vote out these ridiculously inept and radical politicians.
Brace yourselves, folks. The time table for the next terrorist attack just advanced.
New Terror Scare in Saudi Arabia - Alert for 85 al Qaeda Suspects
In what is being described as an "unprecedented global alert," the International Criminal Police Organization
today issued its largest-ever most wanted list for 85 terrorist suspects,
who are sought by Saudi Arabia for allegedly plotting attacks
against the country and for suspected links to al Qaeda.
"Never before has INTERPOL been asked to alert the world
about so many dangerous fugitives at one time,"
said Secretary General Ronald K. Noble in a statement.
"We know that we are approaching the
16th anniversary of the first World Trade Center bombing on Feb. 26, 2009
and therefore must be especially vigilant of fugitive al Qaeda terrorists."
"New Film Uncovers "Homegrown Jihad" group responsible
for nearly 50 attacks on American soil, operating 35 training camps across the nation,
but its name cannot be found on the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations
because the terrorism is supported by the US State Dept and Congress....
The group openly recruits through various social service organizations in the U.S.,
including the prison system. Members live in compounds where they agree
to abide by the laws of Jamaat ul-Fuqra, which are considered
to be above local, state and federal authority."
I’ve never seen Detroit but I’ll take your word for it. I think it’s time to stop playing games and start calling a spade a spade. We need to highlight the troubled cities and states and highlight who has been running them. We need to highlight the decent cities and states and who has been running them. By no means do I believe this will divide cleanly between Dems and Repubs, and that is why we need to highlight just what policies brought about the debacles or saved others. Unfortunately we have to contend with a seriously under-educated populace who can hardly think beyond American Idol voting. That means we have to be very creative but we can do it. Rush needs more support there on the airwaves and in the editorial papers and in the popular media. We need to get a better speakers’ bureau of conservatives like Thomas Sowell, Victor Davis Hansen (or is it Victor Hansen Davis?), Mark Steyn and others to produce videos we can use to convert the mind-numbed.
