    “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...

    Software engineer Jennifer Kolar is to be sentenced this week in federal court for her role in Earth Liberation Front arsons, including one at the University of Washington. Her time in prison will be reduced because she turned state's witness, but that doesn't mitigate the fact she is now regarded as a snitch by peers and could be labeled a terrorist by the government.By Kim McDonald "Don't hang up," FBI Special Agent Jane Quimby told Jennifer Kolar on Dec. 10, 2006. "There were arrests and there is a target letter for you." She gave Kolar the name and number...

    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...

    Daily Mail ^ | January 20, 2009 | Nicola Boden and Bill Condie
    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...
  • Obama Names Head Of Failed Chicago Schools To Education Post

    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. Barack Obama and his terrorist buddy, William Ayers. Today, Barack Obama tapped the head of that school system, Arne Duncan, a fellow Hyde Park resident and basketball playmate of Obama's, to run the Department of Education. Duncan succeeded...

    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. "We're setting the stage for when we come...

    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. Senator Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement, and he used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers. Read more on the Marxist endorsement that Barack Obama sought out: Co-founded in 1992 by Daniel Cantor (a former staffer for Jesse Jackson's 1988 presidential campaign) and Joel Rogers (a sociology and law professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison), the New Party was a Marxist political coalition whose...

    HOLLAND - The mayor of this small community 15 miles south of Temple said Tuesday the commission of which she is president is ready to take by the horns the Texas Department of Transportation and its controversial proposal, the Trans-Texas Corridor. Armed with an 80-page manual, “How to Fight the TTC,” and backed by two non-profits who say they protect private property rights, Holland mayor Mae Smith said rural Bell County is ready for a fight. “Bell County sits here like a stepchild and they’re cramming this corridor down our throats,” Ms. Smith said, regarding the commission’s relationship with TxDOT....

    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. Rod Blagojevich (D) through Rezko, hosted a top-dollar special reception with Obama Thursday to raise money for the Democratic White House Victory Fund. Rogers has also pledged to raise over...

    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. According to the informational handouts, the East Central Texas...

    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...

    Reuters ^ | Oct 24, 2007
    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...

    Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) apologized to Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) yesterday, after a motion to rebuke the senior Democrat failed on the House floor Tuesday. “Of course I apologized for my outburst,” Murtha said in an interview yesterday. Sylvia Warner, a spokeswoman for Rogers, confirmed that Murtha had sent a letter. “We are not releasing it since it is a private communication between two members,” she said in an e-mail. Warner went on: “Congressman Rogers does accept the apology, but he is truly hopeful that this whole episode will change the way Congress spends the American taxpayers’ money. He is...

    Keep Arkansas Legal had a meeting Saturday at around 3:00pm. We first had to eat and listen to the Razorbacks Game! For those who don't know, Arkansas won 28-14! We talked about the issue of immigration in general, things like the US, Mexico, Canada trans highway and the Border Patrol Agents who are facing trial for shooting a drug dealer. A major part of the discussion was the loss of the 06 election by Republicans. We all agreed that failure to show victory in Iraq was the main reason for the loss. There were also failures on domestic issues, including...
