    Hurricane Sandy damaged at least 15,000 new cars parked at a New Jersey port, including 320 Karmas, the luxury plug-in hybrid electric vehicle by Fisker Automotive. The loss might not sound like much. Nissan, for example, estimates more than 6,000 of its cars and light trucks are will have to be scrapped. And the superstorm may have damaged as many as 200,000 vehicles, including used autos and those of individual owners, National Automobile Dealers Association Senior Analyst Larry Dixon told Bloomberg

  • Vote fraud alert: One out of five registered Ohio voters is bogus

    Human Events ^ | 9/17/2012 | By: John Hayward
    Vote fraud is no big deal, right? It hardly ever happens. It’s so rare that it’s not even worth discussing. Anyone who claims to take the integrity of our ballots seriously is cynically exploiting phantom fears for the purpose of suppressing the Democrat-loving minority vote. To keep that silly narrative alive, it’s important not to read the Sunday edition of the Columbus Dispatch, in which readers were informed that “more than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote.” Furthermore, “in two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting age population: Northwestern...

    Someone stole our election. Who stole from us via TARP? Who owns/runs media outlets that conspire to destroy our world view and to steal elections? Who aids and abets the obsfucation of our Consitution and Rule of Law? Who advertises with these same? Why do we continue to willingly give them our money so that they can continue to thrive and further harm us? Time for a singular point of action. Boycott......but whom????? A simple target for starters, to be expanded to the entire scope of the Elite Media I suggest: 1. GE 2. any of their advertisers on MSNBC...

    Fausta, a longtime compatriot, just posted the following missive. I am considering ceasing to blog on politics. For eight years I have posted on serious issues taking place in our hemisphere that affect our everyday lives, and, to be honest, Ive about had it. Every post on Latin America takes time researching sources from the country in Spanish, French or Portuguese, plus English-language reports. And what for? The American media and the American public would care more if the Iranians were making deals with Martians than they care if Hezbollah makes deals with the Zetas right in our own country....

    Now do you understand why I had precious little to say about the "election"? The results of this election were determined in 2008, including the faux-opposition candidate. You people who have spent the last several months breathlessly agonizing over this, analyzing fake polls and deluding yourselves into believing that this was somehow a legitimate operation are just sad. You're like the people in Iraq who supported the opposition candidate to Saddam Hussein for all of those years. Yes, Saddam Hussein held "elections". Regularly. That is what happened here yesterday. We had a Saddam Hussein "election". This can all be summed...

    Reason ^ | 11/07/2012
    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Puerto Ricans have endorsed U.S. statehood for the Caribbean island but also ousted the pro-statehood governor in a close election. Gov. Luis Fortuno conceded defeat Wednesday to his main challenger after concluding there were not enough outstanding ballots to close the gap with his main challenger, Alejandro Garcia Padilla. The margin in Tuesday's vote was less than 1 percent. "Now it's time for us to come together as one people. The campaign is over," Fortuno said in a news conference.

    The very same people that have shoved Mitt McDoles down our throats for decades now will re-emerge from the ruling class to tell us that [Romney] was too conservative (I know, I laughed out loud, too)... Romney did everything the cynical Karl Rove wing of the party says Republicans have to do to win...And he still lost. Perhaps if Romney had gone after the president...on Benghazi the way he went after Gingrich and Santorum...he wouldnt have lost. [Obama] embraced his base, even on social issues....The progressives cast a vision that took more than one election cycle, followed it through, and...

    ALPB Forum ^ | 7 November AD 2012 | Peter Speckhard
    Take a look at the historical perspective. An incumbent winning re-election almost always happens. It is expected. It is like a tennis player holding serve. Since WWII, the POTUS has changed parties like clockwork every eight years. The only exception was that Reagan essentially got three terms (Bush 41 basically being just a continuation) by taking one from Carter. Other than that the pattern is unblemished. So the real story of yesterday is just how close the Democrats came to blowing it. In every single other instance the party in power increased their margin of victory running for re-election. LBJ...

    On the Desire for God Our Hearts Are Restless Until They Find Their Rest in God VATICAN CITY, Nov. 7, 2012 (Zenit.org).- Here is a translation of the address Benedict XVI gave today in St. Peter’s Square. The Holy Father continued his series of catecheses on faith. * * * Dear Brothers and Sisters, The path of reflection that we have undertaken together in this Year of Faith leads us to meditate today on a fascinating aspect of human and Christian experience: man bears within him a mysterious desire for God. Very significantly, the Catechism of the Catholic Church opens...

    Inside Bay Area ^ | 11/7/12 | Josh Richman
    Weve posted my story for tomorrows print editions on how Rep. Pete Starks defeat marks both the end of an era and, probably, the start of another Democrat-on-Democrat race for the 15th Congressional District in 2014. Heres a few final thoughts for which there wasnt room in that story, but which seem noteworthy nonetheless. This was a contest for which our editors wanted election-night photographs, but Starks campaign refused to tell us Monday and Tuesday where he would be Tuesday night; I still dont know where he watched the returns. I take this as a sign that his campaign staff...

    Last night's victory for the President marks the first time since its inception that Obamacare is no longer a what-if; it is the future of health care in America. It also means a near immediate impact on the economy. With 20 or so new or higher taxes set to be implemented, ranging from a $123 billion surtax on investment income, through the $20 billion medical device tax, all the way down to the $600 million executive compensation limit, Obamacare will be a nearly unbearable tax burden on the economy. Who will pay? The middle-class workforce, of course. So with another...

    America, the one I loved, left me last night. I fought hard to keep her and tried to warn her of deceitful and abusive men, but in the end, she abandoned not only me, but her sacred virtues, and fell into the arms of sweet-talking swindlers, who promised her the world and tons of free stuff. Today I'm hurt, Im exhausted, I'm subdued, Im extremely disappointed, but surprisingly, I'm not bitter. America has made her choice, and as much as I loved and wanted to protect her, I know I cannot change what has happened. She must deal with the...

    Gay marriage advocates cheered victories in voter initiatives in Maryland and Maine on Tuesday night and seemed poised to win in two other states. The votes were first setbacks at the ballot box for opponents of same-sex marriage after more than 30 victories. With 93 percent of the vote counted in Maryland, Ballot Question 6, which legalizes gay marriage in the state, was leading by 52 percent to 48 percent, and supporters were already claiming victory in the heated and expensive battle. Today the marriage equality map expands to Maryland, giving thousands more loving couples the opportunity to make lifelong...

    ABC News' George Stephanopoulos talks what President Obama's re-election means for the country on "World News" with Diane Sawyer. DIANE SAWYER, ABC NEWS: So give me your bottom line on the Republicans now. We talked about the soul-searching, what do they do next? GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Soul-searching, perhaps a civil war. You've got to look at this party right now. They have won the popular vote only once since 1988, in the presidential race. And it was probably best summed up by Al Cardenas, the head of the American Conservative Union (ACU). He said the party is too old, too white...

    Its as if the twin towers were just blown to hell by the 19 Arab jihads as my eyes stay glassy dropping tears all through the day. I cant shake the feeling that my country is vulnerable and at the mercy of evil as we must try to endure another 4 years. Its so frightening because the majority of my fellow citizens believe that Obama cares so much for the little guy. Yet as our country destroys the value of the dollar we become more and more vulnerable. It is as if I am the child in the street watching...
