    “We are on the hook for trillions of dollars for all these people that Geithner keeps bailing out: AIG , Fannie Mae Freddy Mac. I would have let them go bankrupt. That’s the way the world is supposed to work. When people fail they’re supposed to fail. It’s not supposed to have bureaucrats like Mr Geithner step in and put up trillions of taxpayer money in order to save his friends. You know they are all driving their Lanbridinis and he’s supporting them instead of worrying about the taxpayers.” “Geithner is the wrong guy for the job. he’s been around...

    The new financial rescue plan may not work and could even make things worse because it plunges the US further into debt and it is designed by the same people who failed to forecast the crisis and take measures, legendary investor Jim Rogers told CNBC Tuesday. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will unveil a long-awaited package of measures to help the financial sector at 11 am New York time. But Rogers said Geithner, who was president of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, "has been dead wrong about everything for 15 years in a row," and so was President Barack Obama's...

    Sterling plunged to a seven-year low against the dollar today as one of the world's top investors warned the currency was 'finished'. The pound fell more than two cents to hit a low of $1.3965 as traders reacted to the Government's latest multi billion-pound bailout of the banking system. It is the first time sterling has dropped below $1.40 since mid-2001 and is on track for its biggest one-day percentage fall against the dollar since late 1992. Less than a year ago, it was still trading at $2. Today, it was also down against the euro and the Japanese yen....

    For eight years, the president of the United States — the ex-officio socialite in chief — has turned up his nose at the slightest whiff of social aspiration. Now a new generation of Washington socialites has a dream. They see a dashing, young, brilliant president and his equally brilliant wife ushering in an era of inclusive entertaining. Gone is the white-gloved, debutante-loving, Pilgrim-pedigreed culture that still mattered in Kennedy’s Camelot and Reagan’s Hollywood East. Starting Jan. 20, when President Barack Obama and Michelle move into the White House, the “in crowd” will include just about everyone who, since the dawn...

    The Chicago Public Schools consistently ranks as one of the worst public school systems in the country. Despite much ballyhooed efforts at reform in recent years, little progress has been made. The man Chicago Mayor Richard Daley originally tapped to reform the schools, Paul Vallas, was thwarted http://articles.latimes.com/2001/jun/10/news/mn-8818 in his efforts by the powerful teachers' union, with the assistance of then-State Sen.

    Markets do not trust the governments' plans to keep struggling banks alive and investors will only calm down when the companies with bad assets are allowed to go bankrupt, legendary investor Jim Rogers, CEO of Rogers Holdings, told CNBC on Friday. "The way to solve this problem is to let people go bankrupt," Rogers said. ... The current rescue plans, which will force governments to issue more debt, print money and flood the markets with liquidity, will flare up inflation after the crisis is over and will create worse problems, Rogers warned.

    It seems that Senator Obama's Old party was called the New Party. The party was a Marxist Political coalition. This was not a guilt by association thing.

    Obama fundraiser attracts criticism from GOP, raises questions on ethicsBy Alexander Bolton Posted: 06/17/08 06:42 PM [ET] An event Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) headlined last week has prompted head-scratching among Illinois ethics experts and drawn sharp rebuke from Republicans because one of the main organizers participated in Antoin “Tony” Rezko’s old fundraising network. John W. Rogers Jr., the chairman of Ariel Investments who gave $22,500 in contributions to Illinois Gov.

    Though some may believe the I-69 Trans Texas Corridor will not be constructed, due to overwhelming opposition and various remarks by TxDOT representatives, a newly formed local group called “Grimes County Get Organized” asked Commissioners on Monday to consider forming a Commission group based on Local Government Code 391; to ensure the currently proposed construction plan through the county is officially stopped. The idea to form the commission came from a recent informational meeting about how to stop the corridor held in Lufkin, Texas and hosted by Holland Mayor Mae Smith.

    Brainchild of the KGB As Ion Mihai Pacepa, onetime director of the Romanian espionage service (DIE), later explained, the PLO was conceived at a time when the KGB was creating “liberation front” organizations throughout the Third world. Others included the National Liberation Army of Bolivia, created in 1964 with help from Ernesto “Che” Guevara, and the National Liberation Army of Colombia, created in 1965 with help from Fidel Castro. But the PLO was the KGB’s most enduring achievement. In 1964, the first PLO Council, consisting of 422 Palestinian representatives handpicked by the KGB, approved the Soviet blueprint for a Palestinian...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The United States has entered a recession, according to highly-regarded investor Jim Rogers, who told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper on Wednesday he was switching out of the dollar and into yen, the yuan and the Swiss franc. The veteran investor, who predicted the 1999 commodities rally, also said he was still bullish about surging Chinese stock markets despite worries over a bubble. Fears are growing over the health of the U.S. economy after the fallout from the subprime mortgage market crisis and the global credit crunch it triggered. The U.S. Federal Reserve has already slashed borrowing costs...

    Washington's Double Vision: al-Qaida, Iran and Global Islamo-fascism Paul Rogers The United States needs to keep the focus on al-Qaida while targeting Iran. It isn't easy. There's no escaping Iraq. Two incidents in recent days bear heavily on the unending conflict in that country. More broadly, they reveal how the United States administration's definition of its "war on terror" (or "long war") reflects entrapment in a way of thinking that requires it constantly to press the real world into the service of a partisan, dangerous, and self-defeating ideology. First, the four coordinated truck-bombings of 14 August 2007 which targeted the...

Hoping to avoid the so-called "nuclear" option that would change the Senate's filibuster rule, Specter said he would tackle the nomination of William Myers III to the 9th Circuit appeals court next Tuesday. Myers, by Specter's calculation, is only two votes shy of the 60...

    PORTSMOUTH -- The congressman was at a graveyard in the woods with wet shoes and a glazed doughnut when the bees attacked. It had been U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy's idea to interrupt a newspaper interview last week to show off the 200-year-old historic cemetery next to his home in Portsmouth. Impulsively, he set out in business clothes across the sopping wet grass early in the morning, leading the way through bushes, under branches and over the scattered, jagged pieces of a fallen stone wall, carrying his breakfast doughnut on a napkin. The yellow jackets apparently went first for Kennedy's...

  • Rogers stands by 'circus' comment - on 9/11 Commission

    08/10/2004 6:29:16 AM PDT · by Dan from Michigan · 4 replies · 457+ views
    U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton, is defending his comment on Fox News television last week that the Sept. 11 commission resembles a "traveling circus." (snip) The two (Rogers & Nadler) were discussing recent terror warnings and the Sept. 11 commission, when Rogers said the commission's efforts to continue lobbying for its recommendations were a "traveling circus." On Monday, Rogers said he was referring to the political nature of the debate over the commission's report - which has been published as a book - and the panel members' attempts to extend the commission's life another 18 months. "Asking for 18 more...

    Rogers, not media, right on Iraq I read with interest your editorial on June 1, regarding lawmakers needing to have more faith in their constituents and would like to make the following comments: I have just returned from Iraq after one year of leading the coalition team in the reconstruction of the health-care system in Iraq. Several weeks ago, we transitioned the health ministry to complete Iraqi authority and management. In returning to the United States, I have been discouraged at the lack of comprehensive and balanced reporting by the American media. Congressman Rogers was correct in raising this as...

    George W. Bush ^ | July 7, 2004
    WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers and U.S. Rep. Candice Miller issued the following statements regarding John Kerry’s selection of John Edwards as his running mate: “Michigan voters are too savvy to fall for the flip-flop of candidate Kerry who said he wanted a vice presidential nominee who can be president, then selected someone he had already identified as unqualified. Edwards has not even completed one full term of public service, and from the perspective of actual public service, he is the least qualified of any one who has served as vice president in the past century. “Much...

    9_11 panel's finding not in conflict with Bush: Rogers By Dan Meisler DAILY PRESS & ARGUS A finding by the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that there was no collaboration between Saddam Hussein's regime and the al-Qaida hijackers does not contradict the Bush administration's justification for going to war against Iraq, according to U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton. The commission released a report Wednesday saying contacts between Iraq and al Qaida "do not appear to have resulted in a collaborative relationship," and that "we have no credible evidence that Iraq and al-Qaida cooperated on attacks against the United...

      Prisoner abuse shows lack of character, not poor training Saturday, May 22, 2004 My son is a 19-year-old Army Reserve MP. He graduated yesterday (May 21) after 18 weeks of training. This is not the best time to be a military police officer, given the world-wide attention focused on Army Reserve MPs as a result of pictures detailing abuses of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. If anyone is more perplexed and outraged than the average American citizen by abusive behavior by MPs, then it is most certainly my son and the members of his newly-minted MP...
