    That famous golden spike takes on a whole new meaning with the nearly 1 billion dollar rail to nowhere contract that clocks in at a truly golden 35 million dollars per mile. And its recipient, Mr. Diane Feinstein owner of Tutor Perini, just happens to sit in a warm position near the top of the state’s political heap

    $480 BILLION ANNUAL DIRECT TAX ON SAVINGS Federal Reserve Goes All In for its Owners By Wayne Jett © September 14, 2012 The Federal Reserve announces its intent to create $40 billion monthly at the expense of existing savings and pay it to the big banks for mortgage-backed securities. This outrageous looting evokes what response? Applause, of course, and a little intellectual hand-wringing gives just the right tint of fair debate. Who continues to assign any credibility to the Federal Reserve’s announced policies, objectives and motives? No informed person, except those beholden to big banks (the Fed’s controlling shareholders), including...

    Before she became first Lady Michelle Obama was had a $317,000 job as Vice President of the University of Chicago Medical Center. At her job she helped to create a program where the uninsured get sent to a different hospital. Imagine that, while her husband was pushing universal healthcare Michelle was doing her utmost to make sure the poor didn't come to her hospital. It seems as if the FLOTUS got more than a salary for her work denying health care to the poor. According to The Amateur” author Edward Klein, Dr. Eric Whitaker vice president of the University of...
  • ‘Bird-Brained’ Hypocrisy: Oil Companies Prosecuted for 28 Dead Waterfowl While Wind Companies

    You may have gotten wind of the seven North Dakota oil companies recently charged in federal court with the deaths of 28 migratory birds. The birds allegedly landed in oil waste pits in western North Dakota last spring; the maximum penalty for each charge under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act is six months in prison and a $15,000 fine, the AP said. But did you know that wind-power companies are responsible for more than 400,000 bird deaths annually, and not one has faced a single charge? The Wall Street Journal knows it, opining yesterday that the prosecutions are “bird-brained,” especially...
  • Sarah Palin Slams GE, Solar Firm

    Sarah Palin has joined the manic bashing of General Electric, calling the conglomerate "the poster child of corporate welfare and crony capitalism." One day after Elizabeth Warren said that GE "pays nothing in taxes" as part of her announcement that she would run for the U.S. Senate to represent her home state of Massachusetts, Palin -- the former half-term governor of Alaska, cable stalwart and perennial fence-sitting would-be presidential candidate -- said that the company "pays virtually no corporate income taxes." Palin said nothing about reforming the tax code to address the tax credits claimed by General Electric. Palin quickly...
  • Verizon Strikers Sabotaging Wirelines, Disrupting Phone Service

    ...The Verizon strike has grown particularly ugly in the past few days. In one Pittsburgh suburb, union members from Verizon have tried to block non-union employees from leaving the company’s offices by using chains and locks to close the exit. In many cities along the east coast, union workers intentionally cut fiber-optic lines, impeding phone, television, and Internet services for many Verizon customers. This behavior is not only juvenile, but extremely dangerous for customers trying to reach fire and police services via telephone. In addition to this disturbing behavior, many non-union employees have reported union members spitting at them, throwing...

    Husbands LOVE your wives and do not be harsh with them. Col 3:19 Present Ohbummer has been selling the story he pulled the economy out of the ditch. The economy isn’t in the ditch it’s been wrapped around the Liberty Tree by a drunk driver while he and his fellow partiers want to crack another bottle of Jack Daniels. We need to sober these drunks up before we even think of letting them have the keys again. This meltdown isn’t completely his fault since we haven’t had a sober driver at the wheel since Reagan and since then it has...
  • Congress Should Reject Becker for NLRB [Protect American Workers.]

    ...As a board member, Becker will likely support initiatives to give union organizers access to private property, force employers to promote unionization, and require the names and addresses of employees to be provided to an involved union. He and others on the NLRB have threatened various states with lawsuits for passing anti-Card Check legislation. All of these moves throw the door wide open to union monopolies and worker intimidation. With control of the House and Senate split, the Left has resorted to pushing noxious rulings through federal agencies. There is no reason to expect this to cease without direct congressional...

    We do the job because the government and media lackeys will not. Massive alleged voter fraud is uncovered by a group of concerned citizens down in Texas. The culprit? The Democrats and Barack Obama's favorite "union" - the thugs at the Service Employees International Union. A group of people took it upon themselves to work at polling places in 2008 and observed - and were shocked - by what they perceived to be voter fraud. Their next step was to create a citizen-based grassroots group to collect publicly available voting data and analyze what they found (with the help of...

    As quoted by CNN, Farr apparently said at a House hearing that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers should spend more time deporting illegal immigrants from jails and less time rooting them from work sites, a comment that adequately expresses the needs of his local economic constituency. He told ICE Director Julie Myers that work-site raids result in arrests of people who are basically "at the wrong place at the wrong time. So what happens is the public image of you becomes one of ... essentially a Gestapo-type agency that is knocking down doors."

    Kofi Annan, the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, is said to be struggling with depression and considering his future. Colleagues have reported concerns about Annan ahead of an official report this week that will examine his son Kojo’s connection to the controversial Iraqi oil for food scheme. Depending on the findings of the report, by a team led by the former US Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker, Annan may have to choose between the secretary-generalship and loyalty to his son. American congressional critics of the UN are already pressing him to resign over the mismanagement of the oil for food...
