1000 Point Drop DOW!?! Greeks Burning Greeks! Wall Street Bonuses Out of Control! Time For The Fed To Bailout Europe…Yea Baby Give Me More!

With Obama’s apparent strategy leaning towards exploring every single way to collapse the United States, it isn’t a surprise that we are bailing out Europe. Ah, all the wonderful leftists love to crow about this or that European fashion, ridiculous pensions, life time employment, huge bureaucracies, nanny state, check, check, check, check and check, leftists in the US want all of that! Don’t worry though because it is the rare conservative indeed who will speak out against the “safety net” indeed finding a so-called right wing politician who will admit forthrightly that he intends to cut spending is akin to finding a leftist questioning the idea that someone’s “needs” trumps my freedom. (This makes Conservative NJ Governor Chris Christie a real up and comer and Ron Paul a saint) We are going straight to hell and the goddamn hand basket is in flames! Anyways Zero Hedge as usual is all the way around the story. Really if you aren’t reading Zero Hedge, The Market Ticker ®, Financial Armageddon, Calculated Risk, Dollar Collapse and a few others then all of what is happening is a big ass shock to you. Being surprised is only fun for your birthday.

We are rapidly approaching a point where it simply won’t matter whether the politicians and their needy minions want to cut this or that “safety net”…we have outgrown our ability to pay for all we have promised. As economist Robert Samuelson points out in a recent article we are witnessing the Welfare State’s Death Spiral. And this European Bailout is the sort of dumb move, that will accelerate our final reckoning. What is hilarious and indicative of Obama’s desire to destroy this country is that at the VERY the same time we rushing to adopt all of the sorts of policies that put Europe in that position. Weee!

Well guess what: with about $500 billion in liquidity swaps about to hit the asset side of the ledger (that’s a conservative estimate based on the last time the Fed went full bore on bailing out Europe, and sorry, that European bailout does not come cheap), Excess Reserves (fed liabilities) are about to skyrocket by a comparable amount to match the assets. And here is the double whammy: $500 billion in new excess reserves earning 0.25% for holder banks, means US banks are about to earn an additional $1.25 billion a year risk-free courtesy of US taxpayers, who already are getting the shaft by paying more for gas thanks to the privilege of having bailed out Europe and drowned the world in new and unprecedented gobs of excess liquidity! Simply stated, the Greek “bailout” is a roundabout way of funneling over another extra billion to US banks! Direct cost to US taxpayers to bailout Europe via IMF: $50 billion; Indirect cost to fund incremental bank excess reserves: $1.25 billion; The joy of being raped daily by the Fed-Wall Street complex and assuring another year of record Wall Street bonuses: priceless. Some things money can’t buy. For everything else there are trillions in Federal Reserve Notes appearing each and every day out of thin air. Fed Pretends It Is Preparing To Soak Up Excess Reserves, Even As Currency Swaps Are Sure To Add About $500 Billion To Fed’s Assets | zero hedge (emphasis mine)

CUDA ATTACK! SARAH DOES WHAT NO OTHER REPUBLICAN HAS THE BALLS TO DO! ATTACK OBAMA! WHY IS IT THAT ONLY REPUBLICAN WOMEN ARE TOUGH? WHERE ARE THE MEN???? SARAH PALIN 2012!

Sarah taking it to that bastard in the White House! You Betcha!

PALIN: That’s how I feel! I feel like… and I think that more and more constituents are going to open their eyes now and open their ears to hear what is really going on and realize ok… Maybe we didn’t have a good way of expressing that, or articulating that message of ‘here is what America could potentially become if we grow government to such a degree that we cannot pay for it and we have to borrow money from other countries, some countries that don’t necessarily like America.

And this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead Sean it is the complete opposite. It’s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren’t paying attention, unfortunately our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize.

HANNITY: Socialism?

PALIN: Well, that is where we are headed. That is where we have to be blunt enough and candid enough and honest enough with Americans to let them know that if we keep going down these roads… nationalizing many of our services, our projects, our businesses, yes that is where we would head. And that is why Americans have to be paying attention. And we have to have our voices heard. And ultimately it need to be our will, the American people’s will imposed on Washington, instead of the other way around.

The interview is set to air tonight on FOXNEWS, 9 PM ET.  DRUDGE REPORT: PALIN: ‘TOLD YA SO’ 2009®

Here is EXACTLY what she predicted in 2008 in her acceptance speech. Sarah got it exactly right.

This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word "victory" except when he’s talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot — what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.

Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he wants to forfeit.

Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay … he wants to meet them without preconditions.

Al-Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America … he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights? Government is too big … he wants to grow it.

Congress spends too much … he promises more.

Taxes are too high … he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan, and let me be specific.

The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes … raise payroll taxes … raise investment income taxes … raise the death tax … raise business taxes … and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars. My sister Heather and her husband have just built a service station that’s now opened for business — like millions of others who run small businesses.

Any questions?

Hey US Attorney General Holder…Piss Off, I Will Kiss Your Ass When It Snows In Hell!

No links no bullshit…just screw you Mr. US Attorney General. Take your shitty whiney victim act down the road. It is way past time we call a halt to this bullshit cry baby crap. Life is tough asshole get a goddamn helmet.

Here is our brilliant new Post Racial Messiah’s Attorney General In Action…

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, a nation of cowards,” Holder said in remarks to his staff in honor of Black History Month. His comments appear on a transcript provided by the Justice Department.

“Even as we fight a war against terrorism; deal with the reality of electing an African-American, for the first time, as the president of the United States; and deal with other significant issues of the day, the need to confront our racial past and to understand our racial present, and to understand the history of African people in this country — that all endures,” the attorney general added.

“Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about things racial.”

My goodness these assholes are TRYING to start shit. Besides this is America where we can like who we wish and dislike who we wish and if they don’t like it they can take their asses down the road.

I would like to thank the assholes who voted for these pricks…

Yea I am feeling REAL STIMULATED.

Fun Facts Regarding Economic Hardtimes

Bzzzt If you answered Roosevelt, wrong answer. First hint: He was a Republican! Nope not President Bush. But I bet President Bush never felt like reversing any of this crap. No siree bob all of that socialistic crap was put into place by the guy the leftists love to call a capitalist. Or to put it another way this nonsense was put into place by a person who instead of loving the freedom his countrymen enjoyed, thought he could make better decisions than they could with their money. Did you guess President Nixon? Close I know he fits the description. Nope the answer you are looking for is President Herbert Hoover, the guy who President Calvin Coolidge called "Wonder Boy".

And guess what McCain fans Hoover was also considered for the Democratic ticket. Hoover considered himself a progressive and supported Teddy Roosevelt’s attacks on business.

Btw take a look at the list. Sounds like we are taking the same play book adding more zeros to each category and running with it. Weeee it worked out so well last time we tried. Remember kids it doesn’t really matter whether they are Republican or Democrat if they want to do the same thing.

Well we can be cheery about one thing Obama is doing differently. He is promising NOT to restrict immigration. That will do wonders for the job market.

Where are the Republicans. It is not enough to be against this nonsense. We need to stand up and say we must cut spending! Cut taxes! Get Government off our Backs!

Obama is trying to run the board with all sorts of assaults on our freedoms. Make deals with Democrats! There are a lot of Blue Dog Democrats who have to know they will lose elections if when the go before the people after passing these obnoxious "stimulus" packages.

Stand Up…and fight before Obama makes it impossible to fight politically. More and more Democrats are talking about bringing back the Fairness Doctrine. They intend on making it impossible for our message to get out. We fight now with words before we need to fight later with worse.

Los Angeles Times Is Saving Obama Campaign from a Landslide Loss by Not Releasing Video of This Banquet!

From the NY Sun…That Guy From Obama’s Neighborhood, Billy Ayers and that Chick Bernardette Dohrn attending banquet where Obama toasts PLO Terrorist Khalidi. Gotta love the fact that we have a candidate for the Presidency of the United States toasting the PLO!

But when Columbia academic officials made this choice they knew they were getting a Palestinian political activist. From 1976 to 1982, Mr. Khalidi was a director in Beirut of the official Palestinian press agency, WAFA. Later he served on the PLO "guidance committee" at the Madrid peace conference.

In bringing professor Khalidi to Morningside Heights from the University of Chicago, Columbia also got itself a twofer of Palestinian activism and advocacy. Mr. Khalidi’s wife, Mona, who also served in Beirut as chief editor of the English section of the WAFA press agency, was hired as dean of foreign students at Columbia’s SIPA, working under Dean Anderson. In Chicago, the Khalidis founded the Arab American Action Network, and Mona Khalidi served as its president. A big farewell dinner was held in their honor by AAAN with a commemorative book filled with testimonials from their friends and political allies. These included the left wing anti-war group Not In My Name, the Electronic Intifada, and the ex-Weatherman domestic terrorists Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. (There were also testimonials from then-state Senator Barack Obama and the mayor of Chicago.)Mideast Parley Takes Ugly Turn At Columbia U. – February 4, 2005 – The New York Sun

The Obama toast…

“Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” plus there’s been “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis

Sounds like Obama might not be honest when runs around these days declaring he is for protecting Israel. Sounds like Israel might join all the others thrown under the bus in Obama’s rush to power.

Sounds like any promises that Obama made towards the American Jewish community regarding Israel have about as much behind them as his promises on taxes.

Currently the floor on who gets taxed has dropped from 250,000 per year to 120,000. And if you don’t want to pay that then you are selfish!

A Very Interesting Look at the Election…The Left’s Big Blunder

This is very interesting and while it is a long article it is very much worth your time.

The Left’s Big Blunder

The disastrously counter-productive strategy of Obama’s supporters

October 15, 2008

Two campaigns are being waged right now for the presidency of the United States. No, I’m not talking about the Obama campaign and the McCain campaign. I’m talking about the real-world campaign and the meta-campaign.
The real-world campaign involves speeches and proposals and facts and scandals and political positions and news events. These details, however, are becoming increasingly irrelevant, and have become subsumed by the meta-campaign, which consists of perceptions, polls, reactions, analyses and summations. Until very recently, elections were decided by real-world facts — but not anymore. Facts and events in and of themselves are no longer important; what’s important is how everyone reacts to them. And how do we find out the public’s mood concerning this or that incident? Why, the media tells us, that’s how.
Or so we’ve been led to believe.

We’re all part of the campaign now. Every single one of us. Our opinions, our actions, are bundled together as a group and used as weapons in the race for the White House. When the media reports on what people think, either through public-opinion polling or reportage about anecdotal incidents, it becomes an endless feedback loop, in which the media’s representation of most people’s purported thoughts is supposed to influence everyone else’s thoughts. And then they take another poll to determine how effective the first poll was in influencing public opinion, and the cycle starts all over again. Since everyone now knows that any public expression of their political opinions might be reported by the media, even the most innocent activity becomes a calculated campaign action. Saying how you intend to vote is not simply an expression of how you intend to vote, but rather a component of the public barometer of how the majority intends to vote, which is then used by the media and the blogs to influence everyone else. Nothing is done in all innocence anymore.
It’s no longer a matter of dispute that the mainstream media, overall, very strongly leans to the left. Over 90% of journalists classify themselves politically as "liberal" to varying degrees, and innumerable instances of left-wing bias on the part of the media have been pointed out by bloggers over the years. Yes, a small subset of media outlets are identifiably conservative, but they are vastly outnumbered, both in sheer numbers and in influence, by the liberal media. This fact takes on intense importance in an era when the "news" becomes (as it has become) a subjective matter. Nearly any fact or incident can be "spun" to Obama’s benefit.
Obama’s supporters and his official campaign have taken great advantage of this felicitous informational landscape — first, that the meta-campaign trumps reality, and second, that the media is cooperative and complicit. For example, after presidential debates, the leading left-wing blogs always coordinate massive online opinion-poll-stuffing campaigns. After the Palin-Biden vice-presidential debate, the overwhelming consensus on conservative and centrist blogs was that Palin had won handily, and that Biden spoke mostly in a soporific monotone while spewing a continuous stream of easily debunked falsehoods. And yet readers of DailyKos, the Huffington Post, Democratic Underground and dozens of other top left-wing blogs swarmed en masse to vote (often repeatedly) in mainstream online polls about the debate, so that afterward, CNN (among many others) could run headlines that said "57% Think Biden Won Debate," basing their conclusion on the results of the online polls. And once enough of these articles get published, then they themselves become "proof" of the debate’s supposed outcome, and before long (often just a matter of hours) it becomes a "fact" no longer up for discussion that Biden won the debate. This fact is then referenced by pundits, and slips into supposedly neutral news stories.
The illusory quest for conformist decision-making in the 2008 presidential election
Say, for example, that you were an Obama supporter who watched the Vice Presidential debate and felt that Palin had done well and was a more effective debater than Biden — though not well enough to change your mind about voting for the Obama-Biden ticket. Immediately afterward you encounter an online poll, asking you to vote on who won the debate. What do you do? I suspect that most, if not nearly all, Obama supporters would lie and still vote in the poll that Biden had won the debate, even though they felt that Palin had in fact defeated him. But why do so? As an Obama supporter, you still want your candidate to win, so that every action you take should revolve around only one question: Will this help Obama win? Probably unconsciously, people assume without really thinking about why, that if enough people say Biden won the debate, then a general consensus will be reached that Biden did win the debate, and as a result some vague category of Americans who up until that point had not been Obama supporters will change their allegiances and in reality vote for Obama-Biden on election day.
The Obama campaign itself also takes advantage of the sympathetic media to construct a facade of inevitability. The campaign will stage-manage crowds and dictate camera angles so that Obama is seen to not only have overwhelming numbers of fans but the correct demographic proportion of fans; the campaign will coordinate Obama appearances to coincide with rock concerts or other festivals so they can point to the huge crowds who showed up to watch Obama; and the media plays right along.

McCain supporters often complain about this strategy by the Left, going to great pains to point out the poll stuffing, the deceptive photos, the crowd overestimation, the slanted media coverage, and so forth. But should conservatives be so concerned? I propose that McCain supporters should be GLAD this is happening — because the Left is in fact making a disastrous strategic blunder.
A substantial portion of the Left’s strategy during this campaign is to create the perception that as many people as possible are supporting Obama. They strive to not simply show that he has a lot of supporters (which, obviously, he has), but to purposely inflate or exaggerate the numbers in order to make his support seem larger than it really is. The drive to do this seems almost automatic; it is assumed by Obama’s supporters to be the most effective campaign strategy. It’s so automatic that they perhaps are no longer even aware that it is a strategy. But why? What purpose is possibly served by this behavior? Has anyone on the Left ever paused, stepped back, and asked, "Wait a minute — why are we doing this? Are we sure it’s the correct course of action?" Doing everything possible to inflate the perceived support of Democratic candidates has become so de rigueur that the Left has long ago forgotten why they’re even doing it.
This essay examines the underlying faulty assumptions of this strategy — and shows why it’s not only counter-productive, but could backfire disastrously. The Left’s Big Blunder

Fred Thompson Defending Sarah on Both Flanks…Left and Right!

That she would have folk attacking her from the left was a given. But what is especially grating to me is watching the attacks from the right. Fred isn’t having any of it. George Will can go suck an egg. What the hell has either George Will or David Brooks or Kathleen Parker done in their lives except to mouth off?  

One can hardly disagree with the desirability of our leaders having the qualities that Brooks describes (putting aside the question of how many of our leaders who are not Sarah Palin have demonstrated these qualities). But there are other important qualifications, such as will, courage, and determination. Frankly, an infusion of these qualities into our body politic is desperately needed – not just to raise hell with the establishment, but to speak the hard truth about unpleasant choices facing our country. To push for choices that will, in the long term, benefit our country, our children and our grandchildren. In other words, things which “prudent” leaders are all too often reluctant to do.  Source: Fred Thompson :: Townhall.com :: Qualified

If you don’t like what Fred is saying then how about Teddy Roosevelt?

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Earthworms like George Will, David Brooks and Krauthammer have only traded in words…never accomplishing more than to be the critic of those in the ring…to hell with them. Sarah Palin has character and after the disaster that has befallen this country because of dishonesty and the treachery of both our politicians and the press that protect them we could use more character and less “experience”.

Character is far more important than intellect in making a man a good citizen or successful at his calling- meaning by character not only such qualities as honesty and truthfulness, but courage, perseverance and self-reliance. ~ Theodore Roosevelt 1890

Finally lets have Fred finish up!

Wall Street and Washington were full of people who were “qualified and experienced” in the field of finance. Sen. Barack Obama, for one, has a great deal of experience in the housing field. So do many of his closest advisers. I would have traded some of that experience for a few more leaders with less experience and more courage to buck the establishment and tell the truth about what was happening.

This brings me back to Governor Sarah Palin, and why I say that courage and political will are at the very top of the “qualification” requirements for today’s leaders. So the question is, how does Sarah Palin compare on that score with Biden and Obama, for that matter? Very well, I’d say.
