Following this tour, Obama and Gen. Gration reported to General James Jones (then head of the European Command and NATO Supreme Commander) in Stuttgart before returning to the United States.
The operation continued. Madeleine Albright, as NDI President (the branch of the National Endowment for Democracy4 that specializes in handling left-wing parties) travelled to Nairobi, where she oversaw the organization of the Orange Movement. Then John McCain, as chairman of the IRI (the branch of the National Endowment for Democracy that specializes in handling right-wing parties) complemented the opposition coalition in dealing with small right-wing organizations5.
During the parliamentary elections of December 2007, a survey funded by USAID announces the victory of Odinga. On election day, John McCain announced that President Kibaki rigged the election in favor of his party and that in fact the opposition led by Odinga had won. The NSA, in conjunction with local phone operators, sent anonymous text messages to the population. In areas populated by the Luo (Odinga's ethnic group), they read "Dear Kenyans, the Kikuyu have stolen our children's future... We must treat them in the only way that they understand... with violence." In areas populated by Kikuyu, they read: "The blood of any innocent Kikuyu will be paid. We will slaughter them right to the heart of the capital. For Justice, establish a list of Luos that you know. We will send you the phone numbers to call with such information." Within days, this peaceful country sank into sectarian violence. The riots caused over 1,000 deaths and 300,000 displaced. 500,000 jobs were lost.

Mark Rudd's latest essay on his website, direct link above.
"Che and Me
From the first moment I heard about Che, Ernesto Guevara, he was my man, or, rather, I was his. Brilliant, young, idealistic, a daring commander of rebels, willing to risk his life to free the people of the world, I wanted to be like him. Who wouldn’t fall for this rifle-toting poet who wrote, “At the risk of sounding ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love.”..."
Just in case you missed it: Obama declares swine flu a national emergency (on Friday night and reported Saturday 10/24/09) http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091025/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_obama_swine_flu
Things to watch for during a “Declared National Emergency”
"...From the day he took office, Obama and his puppet masters have been building a shadow Government with all power vested in them. The Czars he has appointed, who were not vetted and approved by Congress nor elected, now have the authority to control every aspect of American commerce.
I challenge you to look at the Executive Orders that have been signed over the last 30 years and are still in place. Also carefully read the provisions of the Violent Crime Control Act. They are listed here America In Peril and I include a partial list below.
You will see that with the Executive Orders already in place, combined with the provisions of the Violent Crime Control Act, with the stroke of a pen Obama can suspend the Constitution, the Judiciary, Elections and in effect declare himself president for life...."

I can't wait for the liberals to start eating each other over this. Let the show begin.
"...The campaign recognizes immigration as the number one factor driving U.S. population growth and makes the point that when immigrants settle in the U.S. their energy use quickly becomes Americanized. As a result immigrants’ carbon emissions skyrocket. The result is a quadrupling of immigrants’ carbon footprint compared to the amount of carbon emissions they produced in their home countries.
CAPS is launching the ad campaign as environmental sensitivity heightens with the approach of the United Nations Climate Change Conference and as the Obama administration grapples with Climate Change and Energy policy. The administration is addressing domestic energy and conservation policy as America faces the largest population increase in its history. According to 2008 U.S. Census Bureau projections, U.S. population will jump from 308 million today to more than 400 million by 2040. That’s a 33 percent increase yielding an additional 100 million more people in just the next 30 years. It’s an increase equivalent to adding another entire Western half of the country. According to Pew Research, 82 percent of that growth will be a result of immigration and births to immigrants.
Diana Hull, President of Californians for Population Stabilization commented, “Imagine taking close to 100 million people with a relatively small carbon footprint and quadrupling their carbon emissions overnight just by moving them to the U.S. That’s going to significantly impact Global Warming. Cutting immigration to the U.S. isn’t the only thing we should do to solve the global warming problem, but stopping mass immigration, especially from low carbon use nations will go a long way towards a solution because it is a significant contributor to the problems we face...."

Poll: Americans' belief in global warming cools
WASHINGTON — The number of Americans who believe there is solid evidence the Earth is warming because of pollution is at its lowest point in three years, according to a survey released Thursday
Carbon is not causing global warming or climate change
By Dr. Tim Ball
Real science, not politics, on CO2:
First a laugh, then a cry.
A cowboy from Texas attends a social function where Barack Obama is trying
from President Bush's home area, he starts to belittle him by talking in a
southern drawl and single syllable words. As he was doing that, he kept
swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.
The cowboy says, "Y'all havin' some problem with them circle flies?" Obama
stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's what they're called, but
I've never heard of circle flies."
"Well Sir," the cowboy replies, "circle flies hang around ranches. They're
called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the
back end of a horse."
"Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to rambling. But, a moment later he
stops and bluntly asks, "Are you calling me a horse's ass?"
"No, Sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for the citizens of
this country to call their President a horse's ass."
"That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins rambling on once more.
After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says, "Hard to fool
them flies, though."
And how about Stretch Pelosi? Pelosi: Constitutionality of individual mandates not “serious” question http://hotair.com/archives/2009/10/23/pelosi-constitutionality-of-individual-mandates-not-serious-question/
"CNSNews.com: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”
Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
CNSNews.com: “Yes, yes I am.”
Pelosi avoided answering the question, probably because she doesn’t have an answer. Her spokesman said that it was “not a serious question,” but if so, one would presume that Pelosi or her office could provide an easily-corroborated answer. After all, the Constitution is where Congress derives all of its authority. It’s not exactly a lengthy document. How difficult is it to cite the clause that enables Congress to impose a mandate on its citizens to spend money on anything but a tax?
Well, as it turns out, pretty darned difficult. The interstate commerce clause doesn’t apply because Congress doesn’t allow for interstate commerce in health insurance. The “general welfare” clause has never applied to individual mandates, which is why neither Leahy or Pelosi will invoke it publicly. If they trot that out in front of the Supreme Court, they’ll essentially be arguing that the federal government has the authority to impose any kind of mandates at any time on anyone in the country, which makes the limitations of power in the Constitution meaningless — and by extension, makes the Supreme Court meaningless as well. Good luck getting them to buy into that policy."
This is a very sad story about a bear. Everybody should heed the warning to not feed wildlife because they become dependent and cannot forage for themselves anymore.
It is such a tragedy to see what this has done to our country's wildlife!
The photo captures a disturbing trend that is beginning to affect US wildlife . .
Animals that were formerly self-sufficient are now showing signs of belonging to the Democrat Party..... as they have apparently learned to just sit and wait for the government to step in and provide for their care and sustenance.

"A federal judge in California today listened to government lawyers argue that a lawsuit over President Obama's eligibility should be immediately dismissed but refused to their request, saying he would make his decision and announce it later.
The result came this morning from U.S. District Judge David Carter, who already has set a tentative trial date for the dispute Jan. 26, 2010. The judge also already had lawyers draw up a tentative schedule for hearings and deadlines in preparation for the trial."

I had a former employee call me earlier today inquiring about a job, and at the end of the conversation he gave me his phone number. I asked the former employee if this was a new cell phone number and he told me yes this was his “Obama phone.” I asked him what an “Obama phone” was and he went on to say that welfare recipients are now eligible to receive (1) a FREE new phone and (2) approx 70 minutes of FREE minutes every month. I was a little skeptical so I Googled it and low and behold he was telling the truth. TAX PAYER MONEY IS BEING REDISTRIBUTED TO WELFARE RECIPIENTS FOR FREE CELL PHONES. This program was started earlier this year. Enough is enough, the ship is sinking and it’s sinking fast. The very foundations that this country was built on are being shaken. The age old concepts of God, family, and hard work have flown out the window and are being replaced with “Hope and Change” and “Change we can believe in.” You can click on the link below to read more about the “Obama phone”…just have a barf bag ready.

Thanks to Marcia for sending this our way.
This is probably even worse than the deficit spending, health care reform, cap and trade all rolled into one. Like the Law of the Sea Treaty, once in there is no way out.
Here is a great link from Claudette about the Copenhagen Treaty.
If I had been more patient I would have saved a bunch of time and energy trying to research Lord Monckton's startling speech. Hear it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMe5dOgbu40 140,000 viewers have done just that in the past five days!
And an informative story "What Lord Monckton Said At Dinner . . ."

Commissioner Clarissa McGinn continues to stand steadfast on the side of fiscal conservatism. Her constituents should be proud.
Tax abatements, in my opinion, are bailouts on the front end and just a mutation of economic development scams.
At the last regular meeting of the Otero Commission, I address the three commissioners and proferred a letter with an attachment in the form of a commentary by Greg LeRoy, economist and author of The Great American Jobs Scam. Hear an interview here http://www.npr.org/templates/transcript/transcript.php?storyId=4807184 and read the excerpt of his book here http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4807184.
I read the letter for the record at the meeting. It can be viewed at http://www.everythingalamogordo.com/ at the past events button, October 15 Otero Commission Meeting. I told the commissioners if they vote for a tax abatement, they are (paraphrased):
(1) Stepping onto the slippery slope of who qualifies, who does not.
(2) Voting for something detrimental to Otero County.
(3) Tax abatements singularly amount to a hill of beans. Collectively, they are big bucks.
(4) Tax abatements and economic development schemes are not fiscally conservative and therefore, not the will of their constituents.
I welcome any debate on this topic. Tell me how I, and noted economists that I read, are wrong. By the way, this issue is nonpartisan in practice. Think I'll go back and read the Republican Party Platform.......
From the time of the Roman Empire, through Med Evil times, to Stalin, Hitler and the American comlib left, pandemics have been used to frighten and divide populations. Historical rulers, fearing a power grab from emerging political and economic growth in oppressed populations have targeted those populations with rumors or myths or even contaminating entire regions with disease. The current fear of H1N1 may be designed to isolate Americans from one another, to spread fear and paranoia among the population, to maybe great a boogie man population in an attempt to create a division among Americans based on who has the SWINE FLU (H1N1). Such a division, however it manifests itself, would motivate a conniving group of federal officials to orchestrate a rescue, solution, mandated compliance or feeding the myth that one minority population poses a threat to the majority population. Could this be happening in the United States in regards to the H1N1 flu pandemic?

At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it. I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfication of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement. How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement, who took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year, because [the communists] captured it – Now the apotheosis as at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign it. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course he’ll sign it.

Is the dollar doomed ? is the title of Market Tickers instructive post: http://market-ticker.denninger.net/
Bernanke, Geithner, Paulson and both administrations seem to believe that because The Dollar is the world's reserve and trading currency that they can ignore these lessons of history and get away with it.
I'm skeptical, for the simple reason that if you look at the issue in terms of what people are doing, as opposed to saying, they are all moving out of dollars and into other things. The dollar's reserve currency status isn't a function of The US "military might" (until and unless The US is willing to start flinging nuclear warheads around, which I more than somewhat doubt) it is a function of the US maintaining sustainable monetary and fiscal policies.
Again, for the mathematically-challenged, consider the following story.
Many years ago there lived a monarch in India who ruled that all of the people must store their 90% of their rice harvests with him for safekeeping, so in the event of famine there would be enough rice to eat.
One year a famine hit but he refused to release the stored rice, fearing that he would run out and starve himself.
After a couple of months a clever girl came to the monarch and asked for one grain of rice, and for the next month to double it each day.
The Raja agreed, and shortly discovered the magic of exponents, much to his chagrin.
On the first day, he gave 1 grain of rice.
On the second, two.
On the third, four.
On the fourth, eight.
On the fifth, sixteen.
On the sixth, thirty-two.
On the seventh, sixty-four.
On the eight, 128.
On the ninth, 256.
On the 10th, 512.
On the 11th, 1024.
On the 12th, 2048.
On the 13th, 4096 (it was now taking a while to count!)
On the 14th, 8192
On the 15th, 16,384 (The Raja now knew he was in trouble)
On the 16th, 32,768
On the 17th, 65,536
On the 18th, 131,072
On the 19th, 262,144
On the 20th, 524,288
On the 21st, 1,048,576
On the 22nd, 2,097,152
On the 23rd, 4,194,304
On the 24th, 8,388,608
On the 25th, 16,777,216
On the 26th, 33,554,432
On the 27th, 67,108,864
On the 28th, 134,217,728
On the 29th, 268,435,456
And on the 30th, 536,870,912
Needless to say before the 30th day the village was quite-well fed and the Raja was the one who went hungry.
But I want you to pay special attention to the above table, which is why I reproduced it all - most renditions of this story do not.
Notice that on the 29th day the girl was due more rice than had been paid to her in all of the previous 28 days. This is also true for each day in the series - a fact that you need to think about for however long it takes to sink in.
This is the fundamental truth of all exponential (or "power") functions. It is a mathematical truth, not a theory or possibility...."

Don't forget this whole saga involves Steve Rattner, former Obama Car Czar. It really just gets better and better. Haussaman's blog, link above, has archives if you want to get up to speed.
They are taking the vote tomorrow in the Finance Committee. Please call. At the bottom of my message you will find a toll free number. Use it and ask to be transferred from office to office. They won't ask you for a reason, so just say if they vote for the Baucus Bill, you won't vote for them. I will write a post for Otero Residents Forum, link below, and tell just how many I was able to get to on one call. If they can't transfer you, just hang up and call the toll free number again or if you have money to burn, use the direct numbers. Forward this far and wide and ask for action. We stopped Amensty, we can stop this.
Sen. Udall 202-224-6621 (Misguided but the most friendly.)
Sen. Bingaman 202-224-5521 (His staffers don't even ask who you are or where you live.)
Finance Committee numbers:
Sen. Baucus (Chair): 202-224-2651 (His line will probably be busy (past experience, but try it for fun.)
Finance Committee: 202-224-4515 (This one is the most fun because they sound so harried.)

The unspoken crux of the issue, so common to the duplicitous nature of the Obama administration, is: regarding H1N1 flu shots and the implied threat from the fedgov that Americans must get this particular shot, is....how does this 'president' justify the fedgov exercising jurisdiction over the bodies of Americans by demanding Citizens get the H1N1(Swine Flu) vaccination, yet abortion is a right of women in the U.S?
