U.S. sends foreign aid to China




This is ludicrous beyond belief. 
Virtually everything we buy is made in China. 



The way things are deteriorating  shouldn't they be sending us foreign aid?




When are we going to learn? 
Just about every country we have ever given money 
 to hates are guts!

  If this were the Politicians money coming out of their pocket I guarantee you it wouldn't be sent to China.



China is one of the biggest economies in the world and grew at more than 9 percent over the last year. It also has loaned more than $1 trillion to the U.S. to fund its deficit-spending.

But at the same time, the U.S. sends foreign aid to China, which lawmakers of all stripes say is just plain nuts.

"Why in the world would we be borrowing money and then turn around and giving it back to the countries that we're borrowing it from?" Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma said. "If they have enough of a surplus to loan us money, they have enough of a surplus to take care of their own needs."

Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia asked the same question in a recent appearance on Fox News: "Hey, in the crisis that we're in right now, should we really be continuing to send American taxpayer dollars over to China for these purposes?"

It isn't a lot of aid -- tens of millions in bilateral aid, much more through international institutions to which the U.S. contributes.

But the question is why a nation that's competing with the U.S. economically and politically in every corner of the globe should get any money from the U.S.

"I think the Chinese are just laughing whenever they receive a check," said Dan Ikenson, a trade economist at the CATO Institute. "How silly this is of the United States to be subsidizing the faster-growing, second-largest economy in the world."

So why'd we start giving aid in the first place? "The hope and the operating assumption is that to the extent that we engage them in a variety of ways, that we can stay influential. And we can influence them," Dan Runde of the Center for Strategic and International Studies said.

But Runde notes China's record of flaunting trade rules -- violating intellectual property laws, including multiple openings of fake Apple stores there recently, as well as patent infringements. He suggests the aid has had little positive impact.

The whole matter leaves Coburn completely disgusted. "You know, it's stupidity. There's no other explanation for it, other than we're stupid in Washington to continue to do that."

The Senate recently passed a bill to punish Chinese currency manipulation, while the House is about to examine Chinese trade policy across the board.

But as lawmakers debate those more complicated issues, some are asking a simpler question -- why keep sending money to a country trying to undercut the U.S. seemingly at every turn?

How does that catch phrase go...



Useful Idiots


Douglas Schoen warns White House: Don't back 'Occupy Wall Street'



video

 Fortunately they're not listening, as the exuberant idiots become useful in their own demise.


Pollster Douglas Schoen is out with a warning for President Barack Obama: Supporting Occupy Wall Street could cost you a second-term.

"President Obama and the Democratic leadership are making a critical error in embracing the Occupy Wall Street movement—and it may cost them the 2012 election," Schoen said in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday.

The movement, which has spread beyond New York City over the last month, "reflects values that are dangerously out of touch with the broad mass of the American people—and particularly with swing voters who are largely independent and have been trending away from the president since the debate over health-care reform," he wrote.



Schoen presents what he touts is probably "the first systematic random sample of Occupy Wall Street opinion," including data that he says demonstrates the fact that the protesters represent "an unrepresentative segment of the electorate that believes in radical redistribution of wealth, civil disobedience and, in some instances, violence," and that their common bond is "a deep commitment to left-wing policies."

The Occupiers are "a group of engaged progressives who are disillusioned with the capitalist system and have a distinct activist orientation," — all reasons that could make the administration's support for the movement "catastrophic for their party," he warns.

According to Schoen, Obama risks repeating a mistake made in 1970, when "aligning too closely with the antiwar movement hurt Democrats in the midterm election."

The president has already made the serious mistake of abandoning independent and swing voters, Schoen said, by focusing solely on pleasing voters who support taxing oil companies and the rich. Rather than supporting "increasingly radical and potentially violent activists," the pollster suggested that Democrats reach out to the country's moderates.

Put simply, Democrats need to say they are with voters in the middle who want cooperation, conciliation and lower taxes. And they should work particularly hard to contrast their rhetoric with the extremes advocated by the Occupy Wall Street crowd," he said.


“God bless them for their spontaneity,” Pelosi told reporters. “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”

Eric Himpton Holder



On a tip from Ed Kilbane



His full name, and it suits him well.
Our soon to be former head of the DOJ.



U.S. Department of Justice has changed their website.


W E B S I T E C H A N G E - I M P O R T A N T!

Little by little the subtle changes come until one day we will wake up and be the United Socialist States of America. 2012 is just around the corner so get and stay engaged as if our nation depended on it, because it does!!!

U.S. Department of Justice ditches red, white, and blue stars and stripes.

Well, how interesting! It seems the U.S. Department of Justice has changed its web site.
Gone are the colorful red, white, and blue U.S. Flag decorations on the page, 





Replaced by stark black and white. 





And at the top of the page, is a rather interesting quote:
"The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people."

Catchy, huh? Just one tiny little (too small to be relevant obviously) point -- the quote is from C. Wilfred Jenks, who in the 1930's was a leading proponent of the "international law" movement, which had as its goal to impose a global common law and which backed 'global workers' rights.'

Call it Marxism, call it Progressivism, call it Socialism -- under any of those names, it definitely makes the DOJ look corrupt in their new website with Marxist accessories to match. 

See for yourself: http://www.justice.gov/


How very interesting that 'they' couldn't find a nice quote from one of our Founders. People, we have lost our Republic. This is an example of the slow, methodical misuse of power by our current government as they lead us to socialism, and thereby destroy our republic as we have known it.

U.S. had 'direct contact' with Iran over plot






In Reagan's day... Dials 1-800-Mahmoud

You're toast...click.



Told ya




Obama promises 'toughest sanctions' on Iran over alleged bomb plot



Hope its not those same dastardly sanctions that kept Castro in power for over fifty years!



The United States will apply the "toughest sanctions" to further isolate Iran over the alleged plan to murder the Saudi ambassador to Washington, Barack Obama said on Thursday, despite growing scepticism over the amateurish nature of the plot and the apparently shambolic background of the main suspect.


Obama insisted that the US had evidence to back up the allegations, as he said he would not take any options off the table in dealing with Iran - diplomatic code for the possibility of military action. Tehran has vehemently denied any involvement in the plot.


US authorities said on Tuesday they had evidence of a plot by two men linked to Iran's revolutionary guard to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, Adel al-Jubeir, by setting off a bomb in a Washington restaurant.


Speaking at a joint press conference with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, Obama said: "Now those facts are there for all to see. We would not be bringing forward a case unless we knew exactly how to support all the allegations that are contained in the indictment."


In addition to prosecutions, Obama said he would continue "to apply the sort of pressure that will have a direct impact on the Iranian government until it makes a better choice in how it interacts with the rest of the international community".


The State Department revealed on Thursday that the US had been in direct contact with Iran over the allegations. "We are not prepared at the moment to go any further on the question of who spoke to whom, and where, but just to confirm that we have had direct contact with Iran,'' said spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.


The president's comments came as two congressional committees held hearings on Iran. In testimony to the Senate banking committee, David Cohen, the US Treasury's under-secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said the administration was considering sanctions against Iran's central bank.


Cohen described the alleged plot as a "dramatic reminder that the urgent and serious threat we face from Iran is not limited to Iran's nuclear ambitions".


Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, chair of the House Foreign Affairs committee, said the assassination plot "illustrates Iran's active campaign" to partner with extremists groups and drug traffickers.

But as more details have emerged, there has been growing scepticism over the true nature of the threat, not least because the main suspect has been revealed to be a chaotic used car salesman, nicknamed "Scarface", with a string of failed businesses behind him.

Manssor Arbabsiar, a naturalized US citizen, was arrested last month, and stands accused of running a global terror plot that stretched from Mexico to Tehran. He is accused of having links to Quds Force, an elite unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. The other suspect, Gholam Shakuri, is said by the US to be in Iran.

The Little Girl and the Atheist



On a tip from Bob Sweet





An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What would you want to talk about?” 

“Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"OK," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"


The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."
To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death, when you don't know shit?"

And then she went back to reading her book.

WE ARE THE 53%
(A counterpunch to Occupy Wall Street Rodents)



In working America 53% of the workforce pay income taxes the other 47% pay nothing. In true fashion, the Marxist mind of the Messiah calculates the 53% are not paying their fair share.





Obama said,  "This is not class warfare-it's math." 

To me it looks like the first shot has been fired.

Behold... The Resurrection of Woodstock




Occupy Wall Street
The only one missing is Jimmy Hendrix.


Brainwashed Obamanites concoct their version of the "bizzaro world" tea party.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Terrorists Give Thumbs Up to Occupy Wall Street


 IRAN CALLS WALL STREET PROTESTS 'AMERICAN SPRING'

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian military commander said Sunday that the protests spreading from New York's Wall Street to other U.S. cities are the beginning of an "American Spring," likening them to the uprisings that toppled Arab autocrats in the Middle East.

Gen. Masoud Jazayeri of Iran's Revolutionary Guard said the protests against corporate greed and the gap between rich and poor are a revolution in the making that will topple what he called the Western capitalist system.

The Occupy Wall Street movement started in New York City last month and is spreading to other parts of the country. The loosely affiliated movement is peacefully protesting the power of the financial and political sectors.

Jazayeri said President Barack Obama's election promises of change have reached a dead end.

"The failure of the U.S. president to resolve the Wall Street crisis will turn this economic movement into a political and social movement protesting the very structure of the U.S. government," the official IRNA news agency quoted Jazayeri as saying Sunday.

"A revolution and a comprehensive movement against corruption in the U.S. is in the making. The last phase will be the collapse of the Western capitalist system," he said, according to IRNA.

A Time When Americans Were Truly Americans




On a tip from
Ed Kilbane
Senior National Correspondent 



A young lady recently discovered this movie of a Spontaneous Victory Parade in Honolulu taken by her farther in 1945. 



If one could create a time machine and transport these faithful, unwavering, not to mention brave Americans from 1945 to 2011 they wouldn't recognize the America of today. And I'm not talking about technology. 


I think they would say...Crank up the machine I wanna go back.


This is a movie of a time long past - a time of patriotism an devotion- we need to remember and be THANKFUL. Check out the color fidelity. It's not bad for 1945. Nothing will ever compare with Kodachrome film.









(For those of us old enough to remember)

Capital One Pitchman Alec Baldwin Supports ‘Occupy Wall Street’








Smart Alec Baldwin who signed with Capitol One for $1,000,000 to do commercials has now taken the side of the Occupy Wall Street crowd. I heard Capital One is just thrilled. Talk about hypocrisy. If it wasn't for low standards he wouldn't have any.

 He has more compassion for the zombies on Wall Street then his own daughter.

(Sometimes you have to strip away the veneer to see what you're really getting) 



Warning painful to watch.

video

Occupy Wall Street has gained celebrity supporters, as the protests continue for the 20th day in New York City.

Michael Moore, Tim Robbins and his EX, Yoko Ono, who have not benefited from this... capitalistic pig society... are joining the Zombies.


Like Hank Williams Jr 



Even the exalted one and his comical sidekick are getting into the act by transforming the whole shebang into a campaign rally!

This coming from a guy who some say is expected to raise 1 billion in campaign contributions. Anyone remember those $36,000 a plate fund raising dinners? The attendees were those filthy capitalists millionaires and billionaires.

Something I could never figure out is Obama continually shifts the blame for is own failed polices on millionaires and billionaires and yet the fools continue to write him a check.



Speaking at a White House news conference, Obama said he understood the people’s concerns about how the nation's financial system works and said many Americans see Wall Street as an example of the financial sector not always sticking to the rules.


"It expresses the frustrations that the American people feel that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country, all across Main Street," the president said, adding that he understood their anger toward the same irresponsible people who enforced abusive practices and got Americans into social ills in the first place.


"We have to have a strong, effective financial sector in order for us to grow,"Obama said Thursday. He also said that the financial-regulation bill he signed ensures tougher oversight of the US’ financial system.


Vice President Joe Biden compared the Wall Street movement to the origins of the Tea Party, a grassroots political movement (He used to refer to it as astroturf) that endorses reductions in government spending, national debt, and the federal budget deficit.


“What is the core of that protest?” Biden asked rhetorically. “The core is: the bargain has been breached. The core is, the American people do not think the system is fair, or on the level.”


Biden cited Bank of America’s recent decision to impose a $5 monthly fee on some debit card users as an example of how the issue has generated frustration among Americans and inspired the Wall Street movement.

Classic political re-direction of  how to play the blame-game.

 I guess that $5.00 monthly fee must be a hell of a lot more momentous then the U.S. debt of almost $15 trillion.

If it was Bush they'd a played twice




Hank Williams Jr. out on Monday Night Football


I guess someone reported him to:



 Did the White House make a phone call? I don't know, they probably didn't have to. But I do know this is the same president who took the unprecedented step of firing the CEO of GM before it became government motors.

Ask yourself this.  Are you ready for some video?

Anyone remember this. A movie depicting the assassination of George W Bush.
(this is a clip)

Media coverage... shock, outrage?...no it was zilch!



Think about it  for a moment. What would be the MSM reaction to a movie depicting the assassination of one Barack Hussein Obama?

How about from these cast of characters:

Al Sharpton
Maxine Waters
Jesse Jackson
Jay Carney
Charles Rangel
Nancy Pelosi
Van Jones
The Pope
Michael Bloomberg
 The population of Kenya
Hollywood Elites
Chris Matthews...
well you get the picture.


Was it the proper thing to do to compare Obama with Hitler? Probably not. Karl Marx would have been more appropriate.


 But I guarantee you if he said the same thing about Bush when he was president he'd still be singing. In fact the MSM would have showered him with accolades and admiration for his avante-garde logic.   




Hank Williams Jr. out on Monday Night Football





BRISTOL, Conn. October 6, 2011 (AP)
Are you ready for some football? Hank Williams Jr. isn't anymore.

The country singer and ESPN each took credit for the decision Thursday morning to no longer use his classic intro to "Monday Night Football."

The network had pulled the song from the game earlier this week after Williams made an analogy to Adolf Hitler in discussing President Barack Obama on Fox News on Monday morning.

"After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision," Williams said in a statement to the Associated Press. "By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It's been a great run."

But ESPN's statement said: "We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams Jr. We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of Monday Night Football has always been about the games and that will continue."

The network said it informed Williams of the move Thursday morning.
Regardless of whose decision it was, one of sports' and entertainment's most visible partnerships is over. The song had been a "Monday Night Football" staple since 1989 and survived the game's switch of networks from ABC to cable a few years ago.

The song is based on Williams' hit "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight." The lyrics were changed each week to reflect the night's game.
ESPN will no longer have access to the music or words because Williams owns the publishing rights, the master recordings and the song.

Williams' statement on "Fox & Friends" comparing a golf game between Obama and Republican Rep. John Boehner to an outing featuring Hitler and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went viral after ESPN announced it would pull the intro late that afternoon.

Occupy Wall Street...Tea Party it ain't






Remember the Glenn Beck Restore America rally? Over 100,000 law abiding,  peaceful, people attended with not one arrest.












 Now contrast that with the Occupy Wall Street crowd where numerous arrests were made for drunkenness and drug use. If poor personal hygiene was a criminal offense they'd all be in jail. 

They look like a sea of Janeane Garofalo's.
