Savage Savages Obama Over Brit Ban
Radio talk show host Michael Savage lashed out at President Barack Obama on Friday, criticizing him for his lavish European tour while residents of Joplin, Mo., work to reclaim their lives after a devastating tornado tore through the town.
known for his diatribes against Obama, told Newsmax:
"Obama is doing nothing! He is disgracing the office of the president, disgracing America's standing in the world and partying across Europe. Now, it may be that Joplin is under water, but he's not [President George W.] Bush. Therefore, ignoring the deaths and destruction at home so he can sip $1,000 wine
while Michelle Obama wears $2,000 dresses is not at all embarrassing or a sign of negligence.
big daddy will be home to make a short detour to Joplin. After forgiving
Egypt $1 billion in debt,
($1 billion for the Muslim Brotherhood!),
he'll toss a few bills to the peasants in Missouri from Air Force One and depart for D.C., where he can get on with his Leninist agenda."
this week, Savage's attorneys were notified by the British government that
he is still banned from entering England, and he must wait until December
to reapply for entry.
The conservative radio host was first put on a list of people not allowed to enter the United Kingdom in 2009. Savage was banned as a “hate promoter” whose views were considered likely to incite violence.
“Your client has not provided any evidence to show that he did not commit the unacceptable behaviour" that prompted the "decision to exclude him, nor has your client provided any acceptable evidence to show his repudiation of those unacceptable behaviours,” a representative of the United Kingdom's treasury solicitor said in a letter to Savage’s British attorney, according to World Net Daily.
However, official government correspondence indicates that Savage is on the list mainly to provide "balance" because of the number of Islamic extremists included.

White House panic: Corsi book targeted
Today, the Obama re-election campaign launched an all-out attack on a brand new book critical of Obama, “Where’s the Birth Certificate,” by bestselling author Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., calling it delusional, laughable and a “joke”… even as it climbed to No. 17 overall, No. 3 in non-fiction and No. 10 in the Kindle version at Amazon.com.
sounds like major déjà vu, it’s because the Obama election
campaign did exactly the same thing in 2008 when it mobilized a major assault
on Corsi’s previous book about Obama, the No. 1 New York Times bestseller
“The Obama Nation.” And that was a response to the impact of his previous
No. 1 New York Times bestseller, “Unfit for Command.”

The testing of the TSA's backscatter airport security machines was rigged to produce fraudulent test results that vastly understate the amount of radiation being emitted by these machines.
more, it turns out the TSA has operated in complete secrecy surrounding
these machines, including using secret scientists to conduct the radiation
tests, which were based on secret methodologies, using secret equipment
and measured by devices that are physically incapable of detecting high
levels of X-ray radiation!

In the first half of Sunday's show, George Knapp was joined by survival expert and health guru, Blake Sawyer, who argued that the United States will no longer be a viable place to live, and people should consider immigrating to locations in the less populated Southern Hemisphere. Whether through war, disease, famine, natural disasters, or ruthless government,
he predicted that 95% of those who remain in the US will be dead in the next 5-15 years.
America has been targeted by the "globalists" to be taken out, he added.
noted that the United States ranks highest in violent crime, and that countries
in the Southern Hemisphere are much more tranquil. In particular, he highlighted
nations in the southern region of South America as being good choices for
survivability, specifically Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, and Ecuador.
"I...believe that the average American does not know that they're the frog in cold water,
and they think they're OK, and they're now boiling," he declared.

Do you know people that still believe that America is a free country? Do you have friends or family that are proud to live in “the land of the free and the home of the brave”? If you do, just show them this article. The things that you are about to read are enough to make the blood of any red-blooded American boil. We don’t live in a free country anymore. Instead, we live in a “Big Brother” police state control grid that is becoming more restrictive every single day. Most of our politicians seem to be control freaks that are obsessed with running every single little detail of our lives. These days there has to be a “rule” or a “regulation” for everything. The radical social engineers in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and communist China never even dared to try some of the things that are going on in America today. We are all being treated little better than cattle and we are all being taught that it is best to just sit in our homes and absorb all of the television “programming” that is being provided for us. Meanwhile, our public schools have become little more than prison grids. Our children are being taught to enjoy living as docile slaves in a world where imagination, liberty, freedom and adventure are all greatly discouraged.
Unfortunately, none of this is an exaggeration. Our politicians love to give speeches about “liberty” and “freedom”, but they always seem to have excuses to justify the endless parade of liberty-killing laws that they are imposing on all the rest of us.
Almost all of the freedoms listed in the Bill of Rights have been severely eroded. In fact, a number of them are almost totally gone at this point.
The things that you are about to read should make you mad. In fact, if none of these things make you mad there is a problem. Sadly, millions of Americans have actually embraced tyranny, and if you are not outraged by any of the items listed below than you are likely one of them.
The following are 10 examples that show that we no longer live in the land of the free and the home of the brave….
#1 According to the ACLU, state police in Michigan are using “extraction devices” to download data from the cellphones of motorists that they pull over. This is taking place even if those pulled over are not accused of doing anything wrong.
The following is how an article on CNET News describes the capabilities of these “extraction devices”….
The devices, sold by a company called Cellebrite, can download text messages, photos, video, and even GPS data from most brands of cell phones. The handheld machines have various interfaces to work with different models and can even bypass security passwords and access some information.
#2 In the state of New York, the Department of Health has designated wiffle ball, dodge ball, kick ball, freeze tag, red rover, frisbee tossing and tug of war as “risky recreational activities“. Any organization or program that allows kids to enjoy these games during the summer will now be subject to strict government regulation according to the New York Daily News….
Under the new rules, any program that offers two or more organized recreational activities – with at least one of them on the risky list – is deemed a summer camp and subject to state regulation.
#3 At one public school in the Chicago area, children have been banned from bringing their lunches from home. Yes, you read that correctly. Students at that particular school are absolutely prohibited from bringing lunches from home. Instead, it is mandatory that they eat the food that the school cafeteria serves.
#4 Would you like to have your face scanned and your ID recorded every time you attend a public event? Don’t laugh. The San Francisco Entertainment Commission is actually proposing a new rule which “would require all venues with an occupancy of over 100 people to record the faces of all patrons and employees and scan their ID’s for storage in a database which they must hand over to law enforcement on request.”
#5 In Delaware, police and state government officials recently tore a basketball hoop right out of a family’s front yard and carted it away because it was “too close” to the street. They even extracted the pole for the basketball hoop out of the ground and took that away too.
#6 In Missouri of all places, two young girls named Abigail and Caitlin Mills were recently taught a lesson on how to be good citizens in the emerging totalitarian control grid going up all over the United States. After a complaint from a neighbor, the city of Hazelwood cracked down on the two girls and told them that they must stop selling girl scout cookies in their own front yard.
#7 As I have written about previously, federal bureaucrats have outlawed the incandescent light bulbs that we all grew up with and will be forcing us to switch over to new CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) light bulbs that are more expensive and that are actually worse for the environment. One new study conducted by scientists in Germany has shown that the new CFL light bulbs that we are being forced to use contain poisonous carcinogens that are likely cause cancer. In fact, the German scientists say that these CFL bulbs should be “kept as far away as possible from the human environment”.
#8 Many states are aggressively seizing “unclaimed” safe deposit boxes and are selling off the contents and using the money to pay state government bills. In the state of California, they are now going after safe deposit boxes if the owners have had “no contact” with the bank for just 3 years. Other states are being nearly as aggressive. If you have a safe deposit box that you have not opened in a while you need to go check on it right away.
#9 One Mississippi state judge recently issued an order for state officials to gather and deliver to him the names of every single child that is being homeschooled in the state. The frightening thing is that the judge did this all on his own. Nobody requested this information and there is no case pending for which this information would be required.
#10 The TSA had promised that they were going to stop groping little children at airports, but apparently that is not the case. For example, one 6 year old little girl made headlines recently when a TSA worker touched all of her private areas before allowing her to get on an airplane. Her parents were forced to stand aside and watch this outrage take place.
So what do all of you think about this list?
anyone out there still believe that we live in the land of the free and
the home of the brave?
New World Powers Move to Shove Dollar Aside
China and four other leading high-growth economies have taken landmark steps toward lowering the importance of the dollar in international financial transactions — part of a seminal shift in the move towards a multicurrency reserve and trading system.
Addition of South Africa to the former BRICS format seems to have galvanized the grouping. The five countries agreed to expand use of their own currencies in trade with each other — an important step toward putting the dollar into a new downsized place. One key influence is the annual expansion of China’s trade volume with other core countries by 40% in 2010 — and the buoyancy looks set to continue. The BRICS’ state development banks, including the China Development Bank, agreed to use their own currencies instead of the dollar in issuing credit or grants to each other — and they will also phase out the dollar in overall settlements and lending among each other.
If the renminbi (the official currency of China) were to become a fully fledged reserve currency, of course, it would have to go down as well as up — marking enormous risks along the journey for the renminbi to assume a greater international role. For all of these reasons, Beijing will proceed with utmost caution in relaxing its restrictions for the currency to circulate freely overseas.
The last few days, make no mistake about it, mark an important step along this path — but there is a long way to go still.
THE WAR OF THE EGGHEAD ACADEMICS
AMERICA HAS ENTERED A WAR IN LIBYA NOT BASED ON NATIONAL INTERESTS, NOT BASED ON NATIONAL SECURITY, BUT BASED ON THE ACADEMIC IDEALS OF AN ELITE FEW NOW IN POWER. THERE WAS A TERM WHICH WAS ONCE USED FOR PEOPLE SUCH AS THIS: EGGHEADS. IN THE 1950S, THE TERM EGGHEADS WAS DIRECTED AT PEOPLE CONSIDERED TOO OUT-OF-TOUCH WITH ORDINARY PEOPLE AND TOO LACKING IN REALISM, COMMON SENSE, VIRILITY, ETC., ON ACCOUNT OF THEIR INTELLECTUAL INTERESTS. THE TERM EGGHEAD REACHED ITS PEAK CURRENCY DURING THE 1950s, WHEN VICE-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RICHARD NIXON USED IT AGAINST DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE ADLAI STEVENSON.
THE TERM EGGHEAD APPLIES AGAIN TO THOSE TODAY WHO HAVE GOTTEN US INVOLVED IN LIBYA. OBAMA: AN OUT-OF-TOUCH INTELLECTUAL WITH A HARVARD DEGREE. HILLARY CLINTON, WHO LACKS REALISM AND COMMON SENSE. AND SUSAN RICE, THE STANFORD GRADUATE AND MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS WHO ON ACCOUNT OF HER INTELLECTUAL INTERESTS AND ABSTRACT COMMITMENT TO “HUMANITARIAN INTERESTS” HAS PLUNGED US INTO A THIRD WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT ANOTHER RICE - CONDOLEEZZA RICE (NO RELATION) PUSHED OUR INVOLVEMENT IN IRAQ UNDER GEORGE W. BUSH. SHE WAS ALSO A STANFORD GRADUATE, SPECIALIZING IN SOVIET STUDIES, AND SPENT TOO MUCH TIME IN THE IVORY TOWER TO REALIZE THAT YOU DON’T TAKE A NATION TO WAR BECAUSE IT FEELS GOOD. AND DON’T FORGET – IT WAS THE EGGHEAD PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON – WHO HAD BEEN PRESIDENT OF PRINCETON UNIVERSITY – WHO GOT AMERICA INTO WORLD WAR ONE. IT WAS JOHN F. KENNEDY, THE ELITIST HARVARD EDUCATED PRESIDENT, WHO GOT US INVOLVED IN VIETNAM. THE WARHAWK EGGHEADS HAVE A LONG AND DISTINGUISHED PEDIGREE.
EGGHEADS ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY. THEY THINK THEY CAN WIN A WAR WITH
A NO-FLY ZONE. BUT THEY DON’T REALIZE IT TAKES ACTUAL GROUND TROOPS TO
DO SO. AND THEY’VE GLORIFIED THE LIBYAN REBELS AS FREEDOM FIGHTERS WITHOUT
KNOWING WHO THEY REALLY ARE. THE TRUTH IS THAT THEY ARE AL-QAIDA, AND LIBYA
WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER OFF UNDER GADHAFI. BUT THE EGGHEADS PRESS ON.
AFTER ALL, IT WAS A FAMOUS EGGHEAD WHO ONCE SAID, “IF YOU WANT TO MAKE
AN OMELET, YOU MUST BE WILLING TO BREAK A FEW EGGS.”

The brazenness of the Obama administration never ceases to amaze. Try typing "Obamacare" into Google, and you'll find that the first entry is now the Obama administration's www.healthcare.gov. If you don't particularly like that result, you'll probably hate the fact that you're paying for it.
get the same paid-for result if you type in "Obamacare facts," "Obamacare
summary," "Obamacare info," "Obamacare overview," "Obamacare questions,"
"Obamacare explanation," "Obamacare basics," "Obamacare pros and cons,"
"Obamacare and elderly," and even "Obamacare and abortion." For each
of these search terms, and many others, the Obama administration's site
comes up first, as a paid entry. But it doesn’t come up if you type in

Words and music by John Kay, Jerry Edmonton, Nick St. Nicholas and Larry Byrom
from the FANTASTIC LP "Monster"
Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches
But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our a homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light The blue and grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war over They stuffed it just like a hog
And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey
The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'
Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner
We can't pay the cost
'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watching
America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

First hour guest on CoastToCoast am on 6/7/10, radio host Alex Jones reported on the Bilderberg meeting taking place in Spain. "This is the first time that a large portion of the Bilderberg group could not even come to the event because there was so much international coverage," said Jones, who considers this a victory of sorts. According to his multiple sources, the attending Bilderberg members have greenlighted an attack on Iran sometime in the next year.

!NO MOSQUE at Ground Zero!
Mosque of conquest?
Posted: August 24, 2010

By William J. Federer
Muslim groups are proposing a 13-story $100 million mosque in the most prominent spot in America – the heart of downtown New York City near the World Trade Center site. Is this mosque a sign of America's tolerance, or is it a sign of Muslim conquest?
The past may hold answers:
In 630, Muhammad led 10,000 Muslim soldiers into Mecca and turned the pagans' most prominent spot, the Ka'aba, into the Masjid al-Haram Mosque.
In 634, Rightly Guided Caliph Umar conquered Syria and turned the Christians' most prominent spot, the Church of Job, famous for being visited by Saint Silva in the fourth century, into the Mosque of Job.
In 637, Caliph Umar conquered Hebron and turned the second-most prominent spot in Judaism, the Cave of the Patriarchs, into the Ibrahimi Mosque. (This was repeated by Saladin in 1188.)
In 638, Muslim generals Amr ibn al-As and Khalid ibn al-Walid conquered Gaza and turned the prominent fifth-century Byzantine church into the Great Mosque of Gaza.
In 638, Caliph Umar conquered Jerusalem. In 691, Caliph Al-Malik ordered the Dome of the Rock built on the most prominent spot in Judaism, the Temple Mount, followed by Caliph Al-Walid building the Al-Aqsa Mosque there in 705.
In 651, Muslims conquered Persia and turned Zoroastrian temples in Bukhara and Istakhr into mosques.
In 706, after Muslims took Damascus from the Byzantine Empire, Caliph Al-Walid turned the prominent Orthodox Church of St. John the Baptist into the Umayyad Mosque.
In 710, Gen. Muhammad bin Qasim conquered Pakistan, defiled the prominent Sun Temple in Multan, which house the great idol "sanam," and erected a mosque.
Get this fascinating history of Islam and the United States: Bill Federer's "What Every American Needs to Know About the Quran"
In 784, after the conquest of Spain, Emir Abd ar-Rahman turned the prominent Visigothic Christian Church of Saint Vincent into the Great Aljama Mosque of Cordoba.
After the conquest of Egypt, Caliphs al-Mamun (813-833) and al-Hakim (996–1021) turned prominent Coptic Christian churches and Jewish synagogues in Cairo into mosques.
In 831, Muslims conquered Palermo, Sicily, and Asad ibn al-Furat turned the prominent Church of Saint Mary of the Assumption into the Great Mosque of Bal'harm.
In 1193, Muslims conquered Delhi, India, and Qutbuddin Aibak turned the Red Citadel in Dhillika, the most prominent spot of the last Hindu rulers, into the Qutb Minar Mosque.
From 1250-1517, Mamluk Muslims controlled the Golan Heights and used the ancient Synagogue of Katzrin as a mosque.
In 1387, Turkish Muslims conquered Thessaloniki and turned the Katholikon Monastery and the Church of Aghia Sophia, which housed the relics of Saint Gregorios Palamas, into mosques, as Symeon of Thessaloniki recorded:
"The greatest number of the buildings of the churches fell to them, of which the first was the Holy Church of the Savior. … These were trampled underfoot and the infidels rejoiced in them. … Most of the religious buildings in the city were despoiled, while altars were demolished and sacred things profaned."
On May 29, 1453, Sultan Mehmet II conquered Constantinople and turned the great Byzantine church, Hagia Sophia, into the Ayasofya Mosque. The largest church in Christendom for a thousand years, the church's four acres of gold mosaics were covered with whitewash and Quran verses.
In 1458, Sultan Mehmet II conquered Athens and turned the Greeks' most prominent spot, the Parthenon on Acropolis hill, into a mosque. When Venetian Gen. Francesco Morosini drove the Muslims out in 1687, a cannonball hit the gunpowder stored in the mosque, blowing it up.
In the 15th century, Ottoman invaders turned Saint Clement's Macedonian Orthodox Monastery in Plaosnik, Balkans, into the Imater Mosque.
From 1519-1858, Muslim Mughal rulers gained control of India and turned over 2,000 Hindu temples into mosques, including demolishing the Temple of Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya, the birthplace of Rama, and replacing it with the Babri Mosque.
India's Mughal Muslim ruler, Jahangir (1605-1627), wrote in Tujuk-i-Jahangiri:
"At the city of Banaras [was] a temple. … I made it my plea for throwing down the temple … and on the spot, with the very same materials, I erected the great mosque."
In 1543, Hayreddin Barbarossa's 30,000 Muslim troops wintered in Toulon, France, and turned the prominent Toulon Cathedral into a mosque.
In 1570, under Sultan Selim II Khan, Muslims conquered Paphos, Cyprus, and Gov. Mehmet Bey Ebubkir turned the prominent Christian church into the Great Mosque of Paphos.
In 1571, Muslims invaded Famagusta, Cyprus, and turned Saint Nicolas Cathedral, a rare Gothic church, into the Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, and Saint Sophia Cathedral in Nicosia, constructed in 1228, into the Selimiye Mosque.
In 1588, Sultan Murat III turned the Eastern Orthodox Church of Saint John the Forerunner in Constantinople into the Hirami Ahmet Pasha Mosque.
In 1781, after having conquered the Old City of Acre, Ottoman Muslims turned the Roman Catholic church built by Crusaders into the Jezzar Ahmet Pasha Mosque, where a hair from Muhammad's beard is preserved.
In 1923, Muslims expelled Greeks from Turkey and turned Orthodox churches into mosques.
In World War II, Nazis allied with Bosnians and turned the prominent Artists' Gallery Museum in Zagreb, Croatia, into a mosque.
In the 1950s, Muslims expelled Jews from Arab lands and turned synagogues into mosques.
Algerian Muslims warred against French colonial rule till France pulled out in 1962, after which the Cathedral of St. Philippe was turned into the Ketchaoua Mosque. Violence against Jews caused 30,000 to flee and the Great Synagogue of Oran was turned into the Mosque Abdellah Ben Salem.
In 1974, Turkish Muslims invaded northern Cyprus, and prominent Greek Orthodox churches were turned into mosques.
In 1981, Muslim immigrants to the Netherlands converted Amsterdam's historic Catholic Sint-Ignatiuskerk into the Fatih Mosque, and a synagogue in The Hague into the Aksa Mosque.
On Sept. 11, 2001, Muslim terrorists attacked the most prominent spot in America, the World Trade Center. In less than 10 years, the number of mosques in New York City has skyrocketed to over 140.
In light of history, reasonable citizens have a right to question if the mosque proposed at Ground Zero
is a sign of America's tolerance, or a sign of Muslim conquest?
Or perhaps even a sign of America's ignorance and stupidity? (Jeff)

Follow-up in Tribune from Ted on 9/10/10
"Dear Central Wisconsin State Fair and all my Wisconsin Spirit of the Wild BloodBrothers, it is with a heavy heart that I write you on behalf of my killer band and commando road crew, attempting to adequately express how shattered we are that Mother Nature brought our wonderful, joyous musical celebration to an early halt last week at your grand event. We were all dedicated and gung-ho to carry on in spite of the horizontal rain, but when my technical czar determined that the extensive rain on stage and drenched amplifiers posed a genuine life and death threat to the band, the good heroes of Marshfield's finest escorted me off stage for our own good.
Thank God for them, really, because goofy old me would have certainly kept rocking, and it would have been tragic if the WhackMaster didn't survive for the greatest hunting season of my life.I can't thank you all enough for all these incredible years of intense support for my music. I feel a kinship far beyond that for our honorable hunting, fishing and trapping lifestyle that we all share. I sincerely thank the Central Wisconsin State Fair and everyone involved for their professional and valiant efforts during the rainstorm. You people ROCK! May you enjoy the greatest hunting season of your life, and may my BloodBrothers of Wisconsin throttle on in your wonderful Badger State.
God bless and Godspeed, Spirit BloodBrothers.

There's been something noticeably absent from the media coverage of
the oil spill. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has tallied hundreds
of dead birds, sea turtles, and dolphins drenched with oil. But where are
The reason you're not seeing many is because BP doesn't want you to. They've barred workers from sharing photos of oiled wildlife and, according to locals, have been whisking away dead and injured wildlife to buildings and offshore ships.
Why does this matter?
The American public needs to see the tragic reality of the impact our addiction to oil has on our wildlife, our environment, and our future. Because ultimately BP is not the only one responsible for this catastrophe; we all are.

! Stop ACTA !
ACTA is an international trade agreement currently negociated by the European Union, the United States, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Australia as well as a few other countries, whose aim is to enforce copyright and tackle counterfeited goods
(hence its acronym: Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement).
The main problem with this treaty is that all the negociations are done secretely. Leaked documents show that one of the major goal of the treaty is to force signatory countries into implementing anti file-sharing policies under the form of three-strikes schemes and net filtering practices.

Greece 'R' U.S.
It's really this way. U.S. borrows more money to loan more money to Greece for them to pay on their loan. WHO is going to loan us money to pay on our loan? So complicated!
(and so stooooopid)
The more the Obama administration spins their wheels, the deeper the hole, until the wheel will no longer be visible. Borrow money to loan. Print money to loan. To what end?
Hamlet's Energy Policy
Obama is proving to be as indecisive on energy policy as he is on so many other things. He is a leader as indecisive as Hamlet.
Consider his actions on Afghanistan. Obama ran on the
promise of making Afghanistan the focus of our military efforts, claiming
it was, unlike Iraq, a legitimate and important war. But when the new general
Obama selected to conduct that war recommended a decisive surge, Obama
spent months in agonizing deliberation, and then sent only a portion of
the troops his general had requested.
Prince Hamlet, in describing himself, describes Obama no less well: "And thus the native hue of resolution / Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought / And enterprises of great pith and moment / With this regard, their currents turn awry / And lose the name of action."
President Obama's handling of energy policy shows the same indecision. He campaigned on a promise of making America energy-independent, ceaselessly bashing the Bush administration for doing nothing in that regard. He promised endless green energy, which would producing millions of green jobs and (during the period when oil prices spiked) more oil and nuclear energy. But in office, Obama has only dithered. During his first year, he merely threw some money at "renewable" energy while spending all his time on health care "reform."
After a year, he finally condescended to address nuclear power and greater domestic oil drilling. He made a big show of allowing federal loan guarantees for a new nuclear plant, but he made no effort to lower the massive regulatory and licensing hurdles that impede construction of new plants. Nor did he raise a finger to stop the closure of the Yucca Mountain site for storage of nuclear waste. And he never attempted to plot a broad path for the expansion of nuclear power.
What would a decisive leader have done? First, to get residents of Nevada to support a waste site, offer them a yearly cash payment. This payment would be like the payment Alaska residents get for allowing oil drilling in their state and would be paid for by a tax on all nuclear power. Second, set up a commission of the best minds in the industry, headed by someone with strong pro-environmentalist and pro-nuclear credentials, to chart a course for the construction of three hundred new plants and upgrades for the existing plants over the next two decades. The commission would select the safest, most efficient current feasible design and lay out a timetable for building the first fifty new plants of the same design (to minimize costs, enable the mass training of new personnel, and ensure that trained personnel could readily move from plant to plant). That commission would also select the design of the first group of fast breeder reactors and reprocessing plants.
None of this has been done, needless to say, or even contemplated, by our President Hamlet.
Even more risible is Obama's so-called oil policy.
Again, after a year of doing nothing to allow increased oil production,
indeed, having his Interior Secretary Salazar put even more of the continent
and continental shelf off-limits, Obama decided to offer a bone to the
people who want more domestic oil production. He announced that he would
open a few areas for exploration, while putting off the actual drilling
that had been scheduled. It was a frivolous and pathetic excuse for a policy
The came the British Petroleum (BP) oil rig disaster. On April 20, a still-unexplained explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig led to a massive leak. Within days, it was discovered the containment valve system at the base of the well had failed, and oil was leaking. At that point, a decisive president would have immediately flown to the site of the disaster, put the Interior Secretary in charge of an immediate, all-out federal effort, and coordinated with BP and all relevant state officials to contain the spill and prepare for the inevitable clean-up. All available Coast Guard and Naval vessels of any conceivable use to help in the containment and cleanup efforts would have been brought into play, alongside private vessels.
A decisive president would also announce that he was assembling a group of non-partisan scientists and engineers (like the group set up to investigate the Challenger space shuttle disaster) to investigate what caused the explosion, how it could have been prevented, why the valve systems that were supposed to stop any spillage failed, how that can be rectified going forward, and what reliable backup systems can be added in the future.
A hypothetical decisive president would have made clear to the American people that the oil industry is basically sound, that the last domestic oil disaster occurred over forty years ago, in spite of all the thousands of oil rigs that have weathered all the hundreds of hurricanes, major storms, and earthquakes that have occurred during all those decades.
Indeed, this mythical decisive leader would make the further point that continued expansion of domestic drilling is still absolutely necessary and that he would couple leasing new areas for oil companies to drill with the requirement that these companies kick in for a fund to come up with even more safety technology and even more backup systems to stop this sort of disaster from recurring.
Additionally, this chimerical decisive president would make the point that if we open up land areas such as ANWR, spills would be even rarer and easier to handle. He would argue that in this as in so many other areas, environmental activists have gotten policies enacted that in fact hurt the environment.
But Obama was not and is not decisive. In fact, his response to the disaster was as bizarrely conflicted as it was grotesquely dilatory. He spent twelve days in Washington essentially doing nothing -- oh, wait, there was the Washington Correspondents' Dinner! -- while the oil spill rapidly ballooned. It took him ten days to send his EPA chief and Interior Secretary down with a squadron of lawyers, apparently under the daffy theory that lawyers are better than engineers at fixing technological problems. (The interior department's chief of staff Tom Strickland was late in joining the party, as he was busy river-rafting in the Grand Canyon. Yes, these people love nature!)
Now, some are calling this "Obama's Katrina," comparing Obama's inaction now to Bush's alleged inaction to Hurricane Katrina. But this comparison is unfair -- to Bush.
First, while during and immediately after the Katrina flooding there was a hurricane blowing through the region, there was no bad weather in Obama's case to stop him from flying down immediately.
Second, the primary responsibility for dealing with the New Orleans disaster lay with its fatuous mayor, Ray "Chocolate City" Nagin, who was too busy arranging for his own family to move to Houston to bother using the city's numerous school buses to get people out (despite Bush's urging immediate evacuation). Also impeding the Feds was the air-headed governor of Louisiana at the time, Kathleen Blanco.
But the BP oil rig disaster took place over fifty miles out at sea, well beyond the jurisdiction of any affected state. It was from the outset solely a federal matter.
Obama has now issued a timeline showing what he has done on this disaster (including, as if he should get compliments for it, the work BP has been doing). But to wait until nearly two weeks after the explosion to even visit the scene, while the crisis grew to become the greatest oil-caused ecological disaster in history, speaks volumes about how fundamentally frivolous Obama is about energy policy.

OBAMA'S JUDGMENTAL NON-JUDGE
BY MICHAEL SAVAGE
OBAMA HAS APPOINTED ANOTHER BIG SIS – ELENA KAGAN – TO BE THE NEXT JUSTICE ON THE SUPREME COURT. THIS TIME HE’S PICKED A REAL PRIZE. KAGAN TRIED TO KICK THE MILITARY OFF THE HARVARD CAMPUS WHEN SHE WAS DEAN OF THE LAW SCHOOL BECAUSE OF “DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL,” JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HER ORIENTATION ON THAT ISSUE. SHE TOOK MONEY FROM GOLDMAN SACHS JUST LIKE HER BOSS, OBAMA. NOW THE EMPTY SKIRTS IN THE MEDIA ARE SAYING THAT SHE DOESN’T HAVE MUCH OF A “PAPER TRAIL” THAT WOULD REVEAL HER VIEWS ON ISSUES. BUT HER SENIOR THESIS AT PRINCETON WAS ENTITLED “TO THE FINAL CONFLICT: SOCIALISM IN NEW YORK CITY, 1900-1933.” SHE’S A NEW YORK CITY RADICAL MARXIST LAWYER THROUGH AND THROUGH.
NOW IN SPITE OF HER MARXIST BACKGROUND, WE KNOW THAT OBAMA IS REPLACING A LIBERAL WITH ANOTHER LIBERAL. SO THIS WILL NOT CHANGE THE IDEOLOGICAL CONTENT OF THE SUPREME COURT. BUT WHAT IS EVEN MORE WORRYING IS KAGAN’S COMPLETE LACK OF JUDICIAL EXPERIENCE. SHE HAS NEVER BEEN A JUDGE. SHE IS A JUDICIAL NON-ENTITY. THE SAME WAS TRUE OF HARRIET MIERS, WHOSE NOMINATION BY GEORGE W. BUSH IN 2005 I ALSO OPPOSED. IN FACT, IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE SAVAGE NATION THAT OUTRAGED CONSERVATIVES MADE THEIR ANGER KNOWN TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND MIERS’ NOMINATION WAS WITHDRAWN. KAGAN COULD SUFFER THE SAME FATE.
IF IT’S UP TO THE WEAK-KNEED REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE SHE’LL PROBABLY
SAIL THROUGH. LUGAR, KYL AND COBURN – SUPPOSEDLY ALL SOLID CONSERVATIVES
– ALL VOTED IN FAVOR OF HER NOMINATION AS SOLICITOR GENERAL, AS DID THE
R.I.N.O.s GREGG, COLLINS AND SNOWE. SO DON’T COUNT ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
TO SAVE YOU FROM KAGAN OR EVEN FIGHT AGAINST HER. OBAMA SEEMS TO BE SAYING
THAT BECAUSE SHE’S A JUDICIAL NON-ENTITY, THAT MAKES HER A “WELL-ROUNDED”
NOMINEE. BUT HE ALREADY HAD CHRISTINA ROHMER, SONYA SOTOMAYOR AND JANET
NAPOLITANO. OBAMA’S ORGANIZATION IS “WELL-ROUNDED” ENOUGH.

of the Moment Award AND Asshole of the Moment
Sen. Henry Waxman
for sneaking anti-vitamin amendment
into Wall Street reform bill
(NaturalNews) Of all the sneaky tactics practiced in Washington D.C., this recent action by Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) is one of the most insidious: While no one was looking, he injected amendment language into the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 (H.R. 4173) that would expand the powers of the FTC (not the FDA, but the FTC) to terrorize nutritional supplement companies by greatly expanding the power of the FTC to make its own laws that target dietary supplement companies.
This is a little-known secret about the FTC and the nutritional supplements business: The FTC routinely targets nutritional supplement companies that are merely telling the truth about their products. Some companies are threatened by merely linking to published scientific studies about their products.
The FTC does much the same thing. They target a particular company that's having success in the natural products marketplace, then they accuse that company of "inferring" that their products have some health benefit. From there, the FTC demands that the company engage in paying a massive fine to the FTC, which the FTC calls "consumer redress" even though none of the money actually goes to the consumers.
If you try to fight the FTC, they haul you into their own special "FTC courts" which are not public courts where you have the benefit of a jury, but rather they are courts where the judges are actually FTC employees and you have no rights. You are essentially guilty until proven innocent, and virtually no one has been found innocent by the FTC.
If the King says you're guilty, then you're guilty
also forces you to sign a "consent decree" which involves you admitting
to committing crimes that you have actually never committed. These crimes
include the "criminal misrepresentation of a product" by, for example,
explaining that walnuts help support healthy cholesterol levels or that
cherries ease symptoms of inflammation.
Using these methods, the FTC has extorted tens of millions of dollars out of nutritional supplement companies. More importantly, it has terrorized the industry and put several companies out of business, denying the American public access to products that could improve their health and prevent disease.
Waxman wants the FTC to have even more power over your vitamins
Now Congressman Henry Waxman wants to give the FTC even more powers by allowing the FTC to write its own laws without Congressional approval. This would allow a rogue agency to simply invent any new law it wants, such as requiring nutritional supplement companies to spend hundreds of millions of dollars "proving" the efficacy of a vitamin before they can sell it.
This will allow the FTC to utterly circumvent DSHEA -- the law passed in 1994 that provides basic protections to vitamin and supplement manufacturers. This will result in an FTC war on vitamins and supplements that would no doubt see this rogue agency attempting to destroy the entire industry and imprison the founders and executives of all the top supplement manufacturers.
This is how bad things have become in America today: The criminal CEOs of drug companies are allowed to commit felony crimes, engage in routine price fixing fraud and fix their research with fraudulent clinical trials, yet the FTC and FDA do nothing. But when an honest nutritional supplement company says something like, "Walnuts are good for your heart," they get threatened with imprisonment or have their entire life savings stolen away from them by the FTC through a series of "fines."
Your help is urgently needed to halt this madness
Join NaturalNews.com and the Alliance for Natural Health to protest this deceptive action by Henry Waxman -- a lifelong opponent of natural medicine who is trying to covertly inject this expansion of FTC powers into
Finance Reform Bill.

We start out with a smooth mellow dish in "Intro," but don't let it fool you, because you are about to have your palate assaulted by "Drive." BS4 alumni Meantooth Grin, bring you "Intro/Drive" and it's that combination of sweet and salty, that I know you'll like.
Next we continue the slide into "Turpentine/Wade in the Water." Clovis Mann returns with another combo taste as greasy breakfast slides into Sunday morning brunch.
Michael Murphy & the Mob bring some comfort food to the table with Why "Get a Chevrolet." Once you try it, you will be glad to have them back and realize that an oldie can be a goodie.
Next it is time to wash some of this down. Here to help us do just that is Bake Sale first - timer Aaron Williams And The Hoodoo with "Drinking Blues." 2:57 PM is close enough to Happy Hour…I need a drink.
You better put that drink down or you will end up like Cadillac Pete and The Heat. They bring us "Rolling Pin." That woman will hit you upside your chin.
New to the Bake Sale is The Charles Walker Band with a little something for later on, to help burn off some of these tasty treats. "Boogie Woogie" will do the trick.
The Nitecaps stop in to add a little dipping sauce to whatever you want to spice up. "King Swing" will definitely do that.
Welcome to the dining room.
Returning from BS4 is Deep Water Reunion. They will get you past that, this is so good but I'm starting to get full point. Once you hear "I Came Here to Play," you know that you are in for the long haul and happy about it.
We are proud to have the talented pat mAcdonald make an appearance to serve us up some thump and stomp on "My Troubled Mind." It leaves us with more room in the stomach. Bring it on!
Another new dish, brought to us by Hounds Tooth, reminds us that whatever new thing we are eating, it is because of the dishes served before. "Blues is Truth" does just that.
Perry Weber & The Deville's have made an appearance and brought us a classic Midwest casserole. All the basics are there but nobody is talking about it because they are too busy eating up "Got My Room."
First timers, The Delta Jets dropped off a plate of greasy appetizers, with "My Baby Blues." I know you are supposed to eat them at the beginning but sometimes you go back to them during the middle of dinner, because they are so good.
The fresh dishes keep coming with The Playground of Sound's "Leavin' Suzanna." You may be thinking about having that second drink about now, because you have just been inspired to keep moving on with your journey.
That inspiration led you to fall in love with what you are now sampling. South End Blues Band brings us yet another new dish with "Love Tsunami."
Sometimes when you try something we haven't had before, you can't help but laugh when you taste it. "Crossdresser's Blues" by Queenie & the Blue Cats makes that happen.
Making his first appearance serving us since BS2 in 2001 is Jimmy Vogeli, with "I Know What I Like." Your foot starts to tap and you're thinking it's almost time for desert because you really don't deserve this much good stuff.
BS4 veterans the Jerry Henry Band return with "Sugar Momma." They will inspire you to clean off your plate, because desert is about to be served.
Desert is a three-piece course with classics on the menu. These deserts differ a little from the rest of the meal but they are familiar.
This newcomer inspires us to burn off some classic calories with "Walkin Shoes." Welcome Doug Kroening to the Bake Sale.
"Crucify" by Sue Dabaco and Wise Fools reminds me of mixing the cake with frosting, ice cream, chocolate syrup and your favorite candy all together in a bowl. It's all familiar and tastes good.
Aaron Williams And The Hoodoo will "Hypnotize" you, with their song of the same name. That is what you are going to need after taking this all in. Hey maybe that type of diet will work for me? Loosen your belt and hit play again. I dare you!

OBAMA THE DESTROYER
By Michael Savage
OBAMA IS LIKE A DESTRUCTIVE CHILD WHO TAKES APART A WATCH AND THEN CAN’T PUT IT BACK TOGETHER AGAIN. HE HAS TAKEN APART THE CAR INDUSTRY, PLACING IT UNDER FEDERAL CONTROL. HE IS DISMANTLING THE BEST HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD, REPLACING IT WITH SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. AND TODAY, HE STARTED DESTROYING OUR MILITARY BY SIGNING AN INSANE NUCLEAR TREATY WITH RUSSIA.
THIS TREATY, THE WORK OF THE MENTALLY DISORDERED LEFT, WILL MEAN A 30% REDUCTION IN OUR NUCLEAR ARSENAL AND A STEEP REDUCTION IN OUR SUBMARINES AND STRATEGIC BOMBERS. THAT’S ON TOP OF THE FACT THAT OBAMA HAS ALREADY SLASHED THE DEFENSE BUDGET AND STOPPED A COMPREHENSIVE MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM. NOW, IN THE NAME OF DIPLOMACY, OBAMA WANTS TO DESTROY OUR NUKES JUST WHEN IRAN AND NORTH KOREA ARE BUILDING THEIRS. OBAMA CLAIMS THIS TREATY WILL COAX IRAN INTO DISCONTINUING ITS NUKE PROGRAM. THAT’S CRAZY. THE HITLER OF IRAN WANTS THESE WEAPONS TO INTIMIDATE THE UNITED STATES AND DESTROY ISRAEL. THIS MEANINGLESS PIECE OF PAPER WILL NOT STOP HIM.
AND WHAT ABOUT RUSSIA? ANYONE WHO THINKS THEY’LL KEEP THEIR WORD IS CRAZY. RUSSIA HAS A HISTORY OF RENEGGING ON NUKE AGREEMENTS. IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO VERIFY HOW MANY THEY’VE DESTROYED, AND THEY’VE ALREADY SAID THAT THEY CAN PULL OUT OF THE AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME. FURTHERMORE, BOTH RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE IN THE PROCESS OF MODERNIZING THEIR NUKES. MOST OF RUSSIA’S NUCLEAR ARSENAL IS AGING AND OUTDATED. IF WE CONTINUED AS WE ARE, RUSSIA WOULD FADE AS A NUCLEAR POWER. THIS AGREEMENT HELPS THEM! HOW MUCH OF OUR OWN ARSENAL IS OUTDATED? OBAMA ISN’T SAYING.
OBAMA DID SAY TODAY
THAT THE SPREAD OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS TO MORE STATES IS AN UNACCEPTABLE RISK
TO GLOBAL SECURITY. AND YET THIS INSANE TREATY INCREASES THAT RISK. OBAMA
ALSO SAID TODAY THAT WHILE THE TREATY WAS A GOOD FIRST STEP FORWARD, IT’S
THE FIRST IN A LONG WAY FORWARD. “IT WILL SET THE STAGE FOR FURTHER CUTS.”
FURTHER CUTS. OBAMA DOESN’T JUST WANT TO REDUCE OUR ARSENAL. HE WANTS TO
ELIMINATE IT COMPLETELY. HE IS OUR DESTROYER-IN-CHIEF. AND THE ONE REMAINING
CHANCE TO END HIS AGENDA OF APPEASEMENT IS THE U.S. SENATE, WHICH MUST
RATIFY THE TREATY BY A TWO-THIRDS MAJORITY. HE COULD BE STOPPED THERE,
BUT WHERE IS THE REPUBLICAN OPPOSITION? EACH DAY, MORE AND MORE, IT’S AS
IF A HOSTILE FOREIGN POWER HAS TAKEN OVER THE COUNTRY.
The Savage Manifesto
A. Regulate Wall Street: End short selling. Try tycoons who profited from bailouts.
B. Cut Federal Income Taxes by 2 percent per year over four years, for a minimum total of 8 percent over four years.
C. Reduce Federal Government Departments in size by 4 percent each year, for a total reduction of size by 16 percent over four years.
D. Eliminate all public assistance for able-bodied recipients. Cut off all public assistance for immigrants for five years. Repatriate those who are not working, after two years.
E. Immediately impose tariffs on cars and trucks owned by foreign entities, even if they’re manufactured in America.
F. Have illegal aliens build a wall between the United States and Mexico, and then, repatriate them. Pay them a one-time worker fee.
G. Increase pay for active duty combat troops by 10 percent. Number Two. Fire any unmarried military person becoming pregnant while on active duty.
H. Make abortions illegal, except when the physical survival of the mother is threatened, to be determined by three medical doctors. Require Norplant for all women on welfare of childbearing age.
I. Close all houses of sex and massage.
J. Expand the DEA, while decriminalizing most drugs.
K. Regarding the media; one, eliminate all foreign ownership of any American media entity. Two, break up overly large conglomerates, like News Corporation.
L. Encourage child bearing among tax paying citizens. Create a marriage incentive, through lower taxes for married heterosexual couples. And a government subsidy for each child conceived and carried to birth. Increase the subsidies for each year the couple remains married.
M. Repatriate all illegal immigrants now incarcerated. Encourage all
other illegals to self-repatriate through double taxation on wages and
fines on employers.
A. Iraq. Send in Iraqi troops to mop up pockets of resistance. Make Iraq pay with their oil for the cost of the war. Cordon off Sadr City, force all residents to leave, then go in and mop up all resistance fighters. Divide Iraq into three to four sectors; Sunni, Shiite, Kurd, and International. Next, remove all U.S. troops after above achieved.
B. Iran. One, sanctions embargoes and mine their harbors. Nothing goes in, nothing comes out.
C. North Korea. Destroy their launching platforms, impose a Naval blockade on all goods coming in or out, except food.
D. Israel Arab Entities. Give Israel four years to become self-sufficient. Cut off all foreign aid to all nations.
E. China. 20 percent tariffs on all China made goods immediately; rising by 5 percent each year for each year China refuses to revalue their currency.
F. United Nations. Withdraw immediately. Remove all Diplomats and staff. Convert the United Nations building into housing for the working poor.
G. Mexico. Force Mexico to pay one barrel of oil for every illegal alien in the United States of America per month.
Nothing New...same old Crooks!
I know he's merely a PUPPET but this Liar is Drunk On Power!
Investment advisor Mish Shedlock has offered commentary on the economy and healthcare
The just passed healthcare bill has NO provisions to cut costs, and has already seen a number of lawsuits filed against it, he noted, adding that the legislation was railroaded through JUST LIKE THE BAILOUTS but even worse BEHIND CLOSED DOORS WITH NO TRANSPARENCY, NO 5IVE DAY PERIOD ON THE WEB FOR PEOPLE TO CHECK (as "promised"),
and NO BIPARTISANSHIP!
This is NOT about Health Care Reform but about Socialized Medicine, Government Control and LESS Freedom!
Although I never thought I'd 'say' this but
this guy is worse than the last and an even
BIGGER LIAR-he ALWAYS does the opposite of what he says!
Keep this in mind when his lips flap and COUNT the number of times he referes to himself-ridiculous.
Here's a List of Obama Lies

Congressman Issa aims to unmask health care deals
House Republican is investigating the legislative deals the White House
and Democratic leadership cut with special interest groups while crafting
the new health care reform law. And California Rep. Darrell Issa is not
happy with the American Medical Association’s terse response to his questions.
Issa, the ranking Republican on the House Oversight Committee, sent letters to five special interest groups, most of which supported reform and cut deals with the Democrats.
“Contrary to the president’s oft-stated goal of transparency, the rank-and-file members of the Democratic Caucus and the entire Republican Conference have not had the opportunity to participate in the negotiations between the Democratic leadership, the White House and health care stakeholders. This is troubling to members of Congress who value transparency in government,” Issa wrote to the AMA, AFSCME, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the American Hospital Association and PhRMA.

Today is a day which will live in infamy for eternity as
The Birth of Social dependency in the U.S. as the crappy
"Health Care Reform" bill is passed. This is NOT about Health care Reform but about CONTROL-from the cradle to the grave- and about WAAAAY more power for the IRS as well as complete Socialism for a once Democratic Republic, the end of life as we know it in the once powerful U.S. in a further step toward Globalism and 'evening out' The World Powers.
Do NOT rejoice in their lies and watch as we crumble like Rome.
The U.S. government now owns OVER 50% of our economy...
(Fannie, Freddy, AIG, GM, Chrysler Health Industry, etc...
and now student loans)
this is NOT how our system was designed.
We are OFFICIALLY Socialist Now!

RIP Tom TBone Wolk
Tom "T-Bone" Wolk, center, died Saturday of a heart attack.
Here is Wolk at a taping of "Live From Daryl's House" with
Todd Rundgren, left, and Daryl Hall, right.
Photo provided/'Live From Daryl's House'
PHOTO ALBUM HERE!
A touching film with heart and soul touched with appropriately-timed humor and blessed with fine acting, characters I bonded with and felt for, cool kids, and real problems
scores a big 8 outta 10 from me
...and a SOLO show to boot
(nobody else in theatre...again! how i LOVE those Monday matinees)
I went to this film solely on the inclusion of Harrison Ford,
as one of the main actors AND executive producer,
knowing absolutely nothing about the film. Harrison seldom disappoints!
Brendan Frasier, with whom i have a love-hate relationship, brought the goods with one of his finest performances ever!
Keri Russell also scores with realism and compassion and ALL the kids involved were excellent!
Touching and a real good feelgood film to warm the darkest of hearts in Winter.
a pretty good game with a Tale of Two Halves, much like most of the 2009 season.
I was VERY pleasantly surprised to see the Saints win as I'd been looking at this game like this,
One without a heart pulls for the Colts
and one without a head picks the Saints
and, for once in sports, Heart triumphed over Head
CONGRATULATIONS to the city of New Orleans!
May this monumental victory help boost the spirit crushed by Katrina
and our Governments total lack of help with that.
"The Marijuana Trick"
I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be
no more consumed with hunger in the land."
– Ezekiel 34/29
Where did the word
'marijuana' come from? In the mid 1930s, the M-word was created to tarnish
the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp plant...as you will read.
The facts cited here, with references, are generally verifiable in the
Encyclopaedia Britannica which was printed on hemp paper for 150 years:
* All schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s; Hemp Paper Reconsidered, Jack Frazier, 1974.
* It was LEGAL TO PAY TAXES WITH HEMP in America from 1631 until the early 1800s; LA Times, Aug. 12, 1981.
* REFUSING TO GROW HEMP in America during the 17th and 18th Centuries WAS AGAINST THE LAW! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow hemp from 1763 to 1769; Hemp in Colonial Virginia, G. M. Herdon.
* George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers GREW HEMP; Washington and Jefferson Diaries. Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from China to France then to America.
* Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America and it processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp. Napoleon wanted to cut off Moscow's export to England; Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer.
* For thousands of years, 90% of all ships' sails and rope were made from hemp. The word 'canvas' is Dutch for hemp; Webster's New World Dictionary.
* 80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.
* The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp; U.S. Government Archives.
* The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th Century; State Archives.
* Oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.
* Rembrandts, Gainsborough’s, Van Gogh’s as well as most early canvas paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.
* In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement such programs; Department of Agriculture
* Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935; Sherman Williams Paint Co. testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.
* Henry Ford's first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONTRUCTED FROM HEMP! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, 'grown from the soil,' had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel; Popular Mechanics, 1941.
* Hemp called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, Feb., 1938.
* Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article entitled 'The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.' It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
The following information comes directly from the United States Department of Agriculture's 1942 14-minute film encouraging and instructing 'patriotic American farmers' to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for the war effort:
'...(When) Grecian temples were new, hemp was already old in the service of mankind. For thousands of years, even then, this plant had been grown for cordage and cloth in China and elsewhere in the East. For centuries prior to about 1850, all the ships that sailed the western seas were rigged with hempen rope and sails. For the sailor, no less than the hangman, hemp was indispensable...
...Now with Philippine and East Indian sources of hemp in the hands of the Japanese...American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as well as of our industries...
...the Navy's rapidly dwindling reserves. When that is gone, American hemp will go on duty again; hemp for mooring ships; hemp for tow lines; hemp for tackle and gear; hemp for countless naval uses both on ship and shore. Just as in the days when Old Ironsides sailed the seas victorious with her hempen shrouds and hempen sails. Hemp for victory!'
Certified proof from the Library of Congress; found by the research of Jack Herer, refuting claims of other government agencies that the 1942 USDA film 'Hemp for Victory' did not exist.
Hemp cultivation and production do not harm the environment. The USDA Bulletin #404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp as wood with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution.
From Popular Mechanics, Feb. 1938:
'It has a short growing season...It can be grown in any state...The long roots penetrate and break the soil to leave it in perfect condition for the next year's crop. The dense shock of leaves, 8 to 12 feet above the ground, chokes out weeds.
...hemp, this new crop can add immeasurably to American agriculture and industry.'
In the 1930s, innovations in farm machinery would have caused an industrial revolution when applied to hemp. This single resource could have created millions of new jobs generating thousands of quality products. Hemp, if not made illegal, would have brought America out of the Great Depression.
William Randolph Hearst (Citizen Kane) and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst's grandfather, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions because of hemp.
In 1937, Dupont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. Dupont's Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80% of Dupont's business.
Andrew Mellon became Hoover's Secretary of the Treasury and Dupont's primary investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
Secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons. Hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to go. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: 'marihuana' and pushed it into the consciousness of America.
A media blitz of 'yellow journalism' raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst's newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marihuana. The menace of marihuana made headlines. Readers learned that it was responsible for everything from car accidents to loose morality.
Films like 'Reefer Madness' (1936), 'Marihuana: Assassin of Youth' (1935) and 'Marihuana: The Devil's Weed' (1936) were propaganda designed by these industrialists to create an enemy. Their purpose was to gain public support so that anti-marihuana laws could be passed.
Examine the following quotes from 'The Burning Question'
aka REEFER MADNESS:
*a violent narcotic.
*acts of shocking violence.
*under the influence of the drug he killed his entire family with an axe.
*more vicious, more deadly even than these soul-destroying drugs (heroin, cocaine) is the menace of marihuana!
Reefer Madness did not end with the usual 'the end.' The film concluded with these words plastered on the screen: TELL YOUR CHILDREN.
In the 1930s, people were very naive; even to the point of ignorance. The masses were like sheep waiting to be led by the few in power. They did not challenge authority. If the news was in print or on the radio, they believed it had to be true. They told their children and their children grew up to be the parents of the baby-boomers.
On April 14, 1937, the Prohibitive Marihuana Tax Law or the bill that outlawed hemp was directly brought to the House Ways and Means Committee. This committee is the only one that can introduce a bill to the House floor without it being debated by other committees. The Chairman of the Ways and Means, Robert Doughton, was a Dupont supporter. He insured that the bill would pass Congress.
Dr. James Woodward, a physician and attorney, testified too late on behalf of the American Medical Association. He told the committee that the reason the AMA had not denounced the Marihuana Tax Law sooner was that the Association had just discovered that marihuana was/is hemp.
Few people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been reading about on Hearst's front pages was in fact passive hemp. The AMA understood hemp to be a MEDICINE found in numerous healing products sold over the last hundred years.
In September of 1937, hemp became illegal. The most useful crop known became a drug and our planet has been suffering ever since.
Congress banned hemp because it was said to be the most violence-causing drug known. Anslinger, head of the Drug Commission for 31 years, promoted the idea that marihuana made users act extremely violent. In the 1950s, under the Communist threat of McCarthyism, Anslinger now said the exact opposite. Marijuana will pacify you so much that soldiers would not want to fight.
Today, our planet is in desperate trouble. Earth is suffocating as large tracts of rain forests disappear. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are killing people. These great problems could be reversed if we industrialized hemp. Natural biomass could provide all of the planet's energy needs that are currently supplied by fossil fuels. We have consumed 80% of our oil and gas reserves. We need a renewable resource. Hemp could be the solution to soaring gas prices.
THE WONDER PLANT
Hemp has a higher quality fiber than wood fiber. Far fewer caustic chemicals are required to make paper from hemp than from trees. Hemp paper does not turn yellow and is very durable. The plant grows quickly to maturity in a season where trees take a lifetime.
ALL PLASTIC PRODUCTS SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP SEED OIL. Hempen plastics are biodegradable! Over time, they would break down and not harm the environment. Oil-based plastics, the ones we are very familiar with, help ruin nature; they do not break down and will do great harm in the future. The process to produce the vast array of natural (hempen) plastics will not ruin the rivers as Dupont and other petrochemical companies have done. Ecology does not fit in with the plans of the Oil Industry and the political machine. Hemp products are safe and natural.
MEDICINES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. We should go back to the days when the AMA supported hemp cures. 'Medical Marijuana' is given out legally to only a handful of people while the rest of us are forced into a system that relies on chemicals. Hemp is only healthy for the human body.
WORLD HUNGER COULD END. A large variety of food products can be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature. ALSO: They have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature! Consuming hemp seeds is the best thing you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.
CLOTHES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. Hemp clothing is extremely strong and durable over time. You could hand clothing, made from hemp, down to your grandchildren. Today, there are American companies that make hemp clothing; usually 50% hemp. Hemp fabrics should be everywhere. Instead, they are almost underground. Superior hemp products are not allowed to advertise on fascist television. Kentucky, once the top hemp producing state, made it ILLEGAL TO WEAR hemp clothing! Can you imagine being thrown into jail for wearing quality jeans?
The world is crazy...but that does not mean you have to join the insanity. Get together. Spread the news. Tell people, and that includes your children, the truth. Use hemp products. Eliminate the word 'marijuana.' Realize the history that created it. Make it politically incorrect to say or print the M-word. Fight against the propaganda (designed to favor the agenda of the super rich) and the bullshit. Hemp must be utilized in the future. We need a clean energy source to save our planet.
The liquor, tobacco and oil companies fund more than a million dollars a day to Partnership for a Drug-Free America and other similar agencies. We have all seen their commercials. Now, their motto is: 'It's more dangerous than we thought.' Lies from the powerful corporations, that began with Hearst, are still alive and well today.
The brainwashing continues. Now, the commercials say: If you buy a joint, you contribute to murders and gang wars. The latest anti-hemp commercials say: If you buy a joint...you are promoting TERRORISM! The new enemy (terrorism) has paved the road to brainwash you any way THEY see fit.
There is only one enemy; the friendly people you pay your taxes to; the war-makers and nature destroyers. With your funding, they are killing the world right in front of your eyes. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY TOBACCO. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY ALCOHOL.
Ingesting THC, hemp's active agent, has a positive effect; relieving asthma and glaucoma. A joint tends to alleviate the nausea caused by chemotherapy. You are able to eat on hemp. This is a healthy state of being.
The hemp plant is an ALIEN plant. There is physical evidence that hemp is not like any other plant on this planet. One could conclude that it was brought here for the benefit of humanity. Hemp is the ONLY plant where the males appear one way and the females appear very different, physically! No one ever speaks of males and females in regard to the plant kingdom because plants do not show their sexes; except for hemp. To determine what sex a certain, normal, Earthly plant is: You have to look internally, at its DNA. A male blade of grass (physically) looks exactly like a female blade of grass. The hemp plant has an intense sexuality.
HEMP IS ILLEGAL BECAUSE BILLIONAIRES WANT TO REMAIN BILLIONAIRES!
Book Of Eli
meets a Black James Bond meets National Treasure-type thriller-seek-ride
meets a bit-preachy Bible sect...makes one helluva combo.
Denzel and Oldman combine to bring great performances.
Settings are cool but a bit too 'computer-graphicy' for me.
I spotted the 'surpise ending' about 1/3 of the way into the film but still pretty well-done.
An enjoyable ride in a big theatre with only 2 others (which made it quite cool)...
Fun and mind-freeing travels.
7 outta 10.
Quite the not-so-amazing games this past weekend as MANY lop-sided BLOWOUTS occured, including my beloved Packers.
NYJets DEMOLISHED the Ocho-Stinkos, the Pats didn't even show up (thankfully) and neither did Philly. The Packers played from behind all day, made stoooopid mistakes, and played a much-sloppier game than the 51-45 score shows.
Considering that we TOTALLY STUNK in weeks 7 and 8, I was very surprised to even make the post-season BUT we are a MUCH BETTER team than the Cards, we just didn't bring our A-game and made those dumb errors we are so fond of...
we MUST like flags as we were the KINGS of them this year.
One and done is better than none!
(Perhaps i pull for Brett now?! )
are gettin' back into the swing of things after a bit off time off. Tweaked The Who's "Love Ain't For Keeping" by adding a Cream-ish jam section to it (ala Odds and Sods) and Pinto brought some Bad Co. in for us to learn.
Good rehearsal...I feel more 'bonded' to them lately and that's a mind-fuck I had to overcome.
We also got word from Studio Earth that the next step in mixes for the disc will be ready next week!
Lizardz Rehearsal-4New Songs!
Last night's first Lizardz rehearsal of the year led to MUCH progress with FOUR new songs learned in 2 hours.

* (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone
It seems we FINALLY have the right lineup now that Tom is healthy again (and playin' like a MADMAN! )...MANY THANKS to Travis for helpin' out in the interim
...inspired, i then wrote a blues number for The Nitecaps, whose Demo I engineered and produced..
Lizardz Songlist UPDATED!

THEE Gerald Celente says 2009 was the collapse and
2010 will be e CRASH!
(which he said will occur when the stimulus money of '09 dries up)
Look for terror alert elevations, Real Estate Market crash...
SO BUY LOCAL and AMERICAN when you do buy next year.
Full interview is HERE
"Oh, by the way, folks, the FDIC – the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation – the one that protects your money in case a bank goes bust. Well, guess what? The FDIC is broke! They are $8 billion in the hole. They are going to the banks now to pay them three years forward so they will have some money to pay other failing banks and the number of failing banks is supposed to increase up into the thousands in 2010.
ARE HEADED TOWARD A SECOND CRASH IN 2010 WITH UNEMPLOYMENT AT THE
HIGH RATES THAT IT IS NOW, WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENS TO THEAVERAGEAMERICAN
WHO THINKS THAT 2010 IS GOING TO BE A TURNING POINT TO SOMETHING BETTER?
They are going to be very disappointed! In November 2007, Fed Chairman Bernanke said we were not going into a recession. That was in front of Congress in January and April 2009! That’s not ancient history. Ben Bernanke was saying we were not going into a recession – ‘we don’t see one coming.’
How could anyone believe these people?
In 2009 February, the Obama Administration said that without his stimulus program we would face unemployment rates at 8% in 2009. Well, guess what? We hit 10.2% in 2009 and that was with the stimulus programs.
How could anyone believe these people?
They have a track record of failure. One failure after the other.
So anyone putting their hopes on them is going to be very disappointed"

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001!

Now President Liar Obama has directed the United States Postal Service
and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative
42 Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp!
REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office.
All you have to say is "No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!"
To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.

just remember THEY ARE ALL LYING-it's ALL about controlling
Prophecy expert and author Grant R. Jeffrey discussed how technology and surveillance are setting the stage for a new reign of tyranny from a hidden global elite that seeks to install a one-world government. Already, a secretive group in Brussels meets behind locked doors and makes decisions for the European Union without democratic input or challenges, he said on Coast To Coast AM.

TODD Last Night
TR did a set of Robert Johnson tunes last night-supoposedly the new album will be called,
"Todd Rundgren’s Johnson" (!!!!)
Stop Breakin' Down
Love in Vain
Sweet Home Chicago
Come On In My Kitchen
Hellhound On My Trail
Travelin' Riverside Blues
course the SECOND Set was
A Wizard A True Star in its entirety so talk about DIVERSITY!
(That's our TODD!)
Our site 'migrated', thus no updates for about 6 months...apologies to avid readers...
Just finished mixing
(yeah, right...mixes are NEVER finished)
the nightcaps demo.
7 songs...soundin' GREATS, one of the area's HOTTEST 'new' bands...
hopefully this will just get better with their own writings.
Cool blues with Hot R&B overtones to delight combine
with soul and white funk to
propel your feet to a

guessin' there'll be one last tweak but this was one good project that
(although i already have 33 hours in it.)
Look for music from these sessions at their site soon!
In an effort to 'keep up on the hipness of youth culture'...AND being a big fan of vampire films...i attended the new installment of Twilight on the tail of opening weekend box office-setting records. For the record i REALLY enjoyed the first one and saw it in a theatre full of high school kids on that opening weekend. this review will be in the minority, no doubt.
Kristen Stewart is a delight that lights up the screen everytime she appears and will be a true star, Robert Pattinson seemed mechanical and appeared to sleepwalk through all his scenes-albeit very few of them in the film, surprisingly...while Taylor Lautner stole the male end of the show by actually displaying some emotion and talent-although the 'secret' was out well before they spilled it.
This flick suffered severly from all the main attributes of held by
most great vampire flicks as there was
NO suspense, NO terror, NO surprises, NO gore, NO humor and NO fun!!!!
even the special effects were cheesey and the music was lackluster, if even existent.
...and the end was such a farce that i had to leave before laughing so as not to 'spoil the kiddie's fun'.
Worth seeing? MAYBE.
Waste of time? PERHAPS.
Top of youth culture's entertainment pyramid? I SURE HOPE NOT!
The biggest disappointment of this was, much like vampires, a lack of
It didn't work on the level of a love story either, unfortunately, as there was more of an "I'm confused" element to all the characters involved that 'mucked up' that end of the story.
Honestly, as far as 'new' films of this genre go, I'd take "Jennifer's Body" or even "The Stepfather" over this anyday...Hell gimme "Orphan" or a good episode of "True Blood".
GLAD i only paid matinee price but also GLAD i saw it on the Mega-screen
as Kristen Stewart is a beauty for the ages!
2 Stars outta 10-a BIG LETDOWN from the first but hopefully not the death of the series.
*NOW GO WATCH THE CLASSICS: Nosferatu (1922), Dracula ('31), The Devil's Commandment ('56), Black Sunday ('61), Kiss of the Vampire ('63), Dracula, Prince of Darkness ('65), The Devil's Mistress ('66), Blacula and The Night Stalker ('72), Salem's Lot: The Movie ('79), The Lost Boys ('87), Bram Stroker's Dracula ('92), From Dusk to Dawn and Borello of Blood ('86), Blade and John Carpenter's Vampires ('88)...or even a spoof like Dracula: Dead and Loving It. It will be MUCH more entertaining!
Here's a list of some of the best ever!

I have tried many different strings over the decades of playing and performing (live and in the studio) but have never found something that could bend so well and stay in tune over multiple shows, until i found Cleartone. I never really paid much attention to the brand of strings i used until i discovered these. The way they hold their tone and tuning, even while bending WAY outside the normal realm, continues to amaze me. The durability - whether in a smokey bar, basement studio, outdoors, or a dusty theatre - is astounding! They also seem to last three times as long as other brands i have used! The residue from my hands has destroyed strings in the past but this has not been a problem with Cleartone, and that is something that amazes me.
I have also found that it takes A LOT to break them (and i have tried)!
They also carry great tone from low to high - and that's quite incredible.
THANK YOU for making such a high-quality product and teaching me that
string brand can make a HUGE difference.
