Obama, Shaka Zulu and The Planet of the Apes; Socialism 101

  • arlenearmy // October 17, 2009 at 12:38 am

    Lisa
    I can easily envision a “Planet of the Apes” & a Shaka Zulu situation headed our way in this nation. I don’t think I’m far fetched on these thoughts. Look at what’s happening !!

    I beseech you all to watch the whole darn series of both movies. When you finish watching it, you will realize what’s coming down!

    Don’t get me wrong.. slaving folks is a bad thing – no matter whose cracking the whip. But its apparently clear to me that there’s a fast & fierce movement by the “left” (particularly by the blacks) to literally enslave ALL whites. As to the fate of conservative blacks, well… I suspect that we will be marked for death— literally! The likes of Sharpton will put a bounty on black conservatives heads. Sharpton is like the brutish Gorilla you see on Planet of the Apes.

    Folks like Olberman, Maddow & other whites are beating the drums for Obama. Why? I dont know if they are stupid, scared of Obama or just brain dead. Truth be told, Obama is not gonna share the power w/Carter or Clinton. He’ll put them in cages. Then we got folks like Lindsy Graham whose straddling the fence to save his own ass. I need not say what Obama will do to him.

    Look at it in this way: Obama turns Shaka Zulu (except he has no warrior skills). He turns into a mad man.. obsessed w/power. Everyone (including his close advisers) becomes fearful of him & he will start distrusting his friends. Obama knows he can’t trust Jesse Jackson, Sharpton & Sheila Jackson-Lee & M. Waters, because they are like the Gorillas you see in Planet of the Apes.

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Foreclosures-rise-5-percent-apf-346539737.html?x=0

    Foreclosures rise 5 percent from summer to fall
    Foreclosures keep soaring as unemployment remains main cause of housing woes

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of households caught up in the foreclosure crisis rose more than 5 percent from summer to fall as a federal effort to assist struggling borrowers was overwhelmed by a flood of defaults among people who lost their jobs.

    The foreclosure crisis affected nearly 938,000 properties in the July-September quarter, compared with about 890,000 in the prior three months, according to a report released Thursday by RealtyTrac Inc. That puts foreclosure-related filings on a pace to hit about 3.5 million this year, up from more than 2.3 million last year.

    Unemployment is the main reason homeowners are falling into trouble. While the economy is likely out of recession, the unemployment rate — now at a 26-year high of 9.8 percent — isn’t expected to peak until the middle of next year.

    Mortgage companies sometimes allow unemployed homeowners to defer three to six months of payments while they are looking for a job. But there’s little else they can do.

    “The sheer scale of the problem is preventing the loan modification programs from having the kind of impact we’d all like” said Rick Sharga, RealtyTrac’s senior vice president for marketing.

    Last week, the Obama administration hailed a milestone in its mortgage relief effort, reporting that 500,000 homeowners have received help since the program was launched in March. But new defaults are still exceeding the number of borrowers getting help.

    Mortgage companies have slowed down the pace of foreclosures as they evaluate whether borrowers qualify for the administration’s program. Analysts, however, forecast that many of those homeowners won’t qualify, and foresee a new wave of foreclosed properties hitting the market next year. That’s likely to further depress home prices.

    Some homeowners are in such a massive financial hole that it’s hard to design a modification that will actually provide lower payments. And some have avoided paying their monthly bills for a long time.

    Carlos Estrada, 57, of Tulare, Calif., for example, hasn’t made a mortgage payment since February 2008. The construction jobs that kept him working more than 40 hours a week during the housing boom have all but vanished.

    Earlier this year, he turned down a modification offer from Bank of America because it would have incorporated his unpaid balance and raised his monthly bill. But a bank spokeswoman said Wednesday that Estrada’s foreclosure sale had been postponed until late next month while the bank reviews whether he can qualify for help.

    “I’m still here waiting for them to help me resolve this situation,” Estrada said in Spanish.

    According to the RealtyTrac report, there were nearly 344,000 foreclosure-related filings last month, down 4 percent from a month earlier but still the third-highest month since the report started in early 2005.

    It was the seventh-straight month in which more than 300,000 households receiving a foreclosure filing, which includes default notices and several other legal notices that homeowners receive before they finally lose their homes.

    Banks repossessed nearly 88,000 homes in September, up from about 76,000 a month earlier.

    On a state-by-state basis, Nevada had the nation’s highest foreclosure rate in the July-September quarter. Arizona was No. 2, followed by California, Florida and Idaho. Rounding out the top 10 were Utah, Georgia, Michigan, Colorado and Illinois.

    AP Real Estate Writer Alex Veiga contributed to this report from Los Angeles.

    Climate Change This Week: Antarctic Ice Report

    According to World Climate Report, “The ice melt across during the Antarctic summer (October-January) of 2008-2009 was the lowest ever recorded in the satellite history.” Marco Tedesco and Andrew Monaghan, in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, report, “A 30-year minimum Antarctic snowmelt record occurred during austral summer 2008-2009 according to space borne microwave observations for 1980-2009. Strong positive phases of both the El-Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Southern Hemisphere Annular Mode (SAM) were recorded during the months leading up to and including the 2008-2009 melt season.”

    So where is all the media attention? NASA researchers for years have dutifully released a plentiful supply of stories about melting sea ice in the Arctic, but icy news at the South Pole has yet to prompt a NASA report. Obviously, if warmers can silence the opposition, it helps build the hoax — er, “consensus.”

Michael Steele: “”The real question Americans are asking is, ‘What has President Obama actually accomplished?’ It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights. One thing is certain – President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.”

Thought I would share this insightful message from Whistleblower magazine…..

“The name of the socialist game is “Intimidation.” Consider what happens when government constantly upsets citizens by bombarding them with rapid-fire crises and “solutions’ that just make the problems worse: Some people become so overwhelmed, they just give in and stop fighting so as to relieve the pressure. Others try to fight back, but become so frustrated that their efforts are misdirected and ineffective, and before long they burn out. A very few, in their rage, might become so unhinged they resort to violence, like Timothy McVeigh, who decided that blowing up a government building in Oklahoma City in 1995 was an acceptable way to fight back against a corrupt government. In reality, he succeeded only in murdering 168 of his countrymen, including a daycare center full of toddlers.
Leftist leaders then capitalize handsomely on such ‘right-wing terrorism’ as justification for their attempts to demonize and suppress conservative groups and voices across the board.

That is why those who are addicted to power are intent on keeping us off balance.

DON’T FALL FOR IT!!

There’s a WORLD of difference
between RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION
and seething hatred!

One is based on a strong sense of justice,
the other is self-destructive, out-of-control rage.

If we can rise above the temptation to hate, we are left with a truly righteous passion to right the wrongs in our beloved country.

Then, whatever we do to reclaim our America–whether we march in huge numbers on the nation’s capital and elsewhere; recall or impeach activist judges; take over local government starting at the precinct level; run for Congress; encourage state legislators to DEFY the federal government when it usurps the STATES constitutional TENTH Amendment powers; take our children out of government schools; or participate in peaceful civil disobedience—OUR EFFORTS WILL BE BLESSED!!” —David Kupelian

DEM Rep Israel(D-NY) gets Called out in own Townhall

https://i1.wp.com/media.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/photo/2009/06/01/PH2009060101378.jpg

tellitlikeitis says on October 7, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Good Morning Everyone!

Shouts, insults fly at Rep. Israel’s health care town hall

Rep. Steve Israel gamely tried to explain the proposed health care reform Monday night, but was often shouted down during his town hall-style meeting at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood.

Israel (D-Huntington) at one point pleaded with those in the crowd yelling at him to “stop calling me a liar and listen.” Judging by the ever-increasing decibel level, he did not win over many converts.

Shouts of — “Stop printing money,” “We don’t care what you think,” and “You’re a moron” — permeated the 90-minute session, which drew far more than the 450 people who filled Van Nostrand Theatre. Scores more were not allowed inside after a Suffolk fire marshal closed the doors.

People opposing the proposed health care reform outnumbered those in favor, though both sides strove to outshout each other during the question-and-answer period.

A typical scene came after Anneliese Lanza of Huntington asked, “Why can’t we just fix the part of health care that is broken when what is needed is tort reform?” The anti-reform portion of the crowd broke into a raucous standing ovation chanting “tort reform.”

“You’re saying tort reform now, but if something happens to you, you’ll be the first one to want to take the case to a judge and jury,” Israel said. “I don’t believe a member of the United States Congress should decide when you can go to court.”

Israel, who supports the public option, which would allow people to purchase insurance through a government program, said he does not expect to support every aspect of the final reform bill.

“I’m not going to draw any lines in the sand,” he said. “I’m not going to vote against 60 percent of what I want because I can’t get 40 percent of what I want. There is no perfection.”

Israel explained how the proposed legislation will affect Medicare — it will eliminate overpayments to doctors in the Medicare Advantage program; that undocumented immigrants won’t be covered; that the federal government would administer the public option just as it does Medicare and Medicaid; and that “the days of insurance companies dropping your coverage because you get sick will be over.”

After several people began shouting concerns about rationed health care, Israel said he hears daily from constituents who have been dropped by their health insurance companies after becoming ill.

“If you can’t get medical care because your insurance company doesn’t want to pay for it, you’ve been rationed out of health care,” Israel said.

Catherine Mullahy, 65, from Huntington, asked if public funds would be used to pay for abortions under the public option. Israel, who favors abortion rights, said they would not be but people could choose an insurance plan that would cover the procedure.

“I would prefer that he be against abortion,” she said. “But I understand.”

From SamHenry, Editor

Sundays on CNN that perennial pair of political bookends, Mary Matalin and husband, James Caraville join in the chatter at CNN.  They both have been, among other things, strategists for the Republican and Democratic Parties respectively. Matalin’s well-known nickname for Caraville has been “Snake Head.”  But for my money, she might wish it gone from the airways and the internet since the old boy is more and more a caricature of his snake-like self with every move of his mouth.

He’s not strong and truthful, he’s snide and cutting.  But on more than one occasion he has been downright nasty.  Just after the 9/12 Tea Party March on Washington, he sat on a CNN panel waving a poster similar to one carried by a few marchers that suggested that the President should have been buried with the Kennedys.  He had no proof of or idea what person or organization made it available. But he went on to query his colleagues, “Did ya see some of those people?  Did ya see some of them”? Of course no one would ever pass James Caraville without thinking that he seemed a bit of an odd duck.

This past Sunday, he continued the White House line (he always tows it) of taking out after Glenn Beck.  I have said in a previous post that with the White House website giving so much space and time to Beck, they have afforded him star power beyond anything otherwise imaginable.  Because Carville is just so ridiculous these days for him to toss Beck under the bus with his distasteful comments was just an exercise in futility if not embarrassment to Ms. Matalin.

“I think he’s nuts, OK?,” the outspoken Democrat said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,”

“Just out-and-out nuts. And I also think that he’s a blatant hypocrite,” Carville said. “Here’s somebody that sits on his show … weeping about how much he loves America and … and then he’s absolutely giddy when his country doesn’t get the Olympics. And this is — I’ll tell you another thing about Glenn Beck. He wouldn’t know the difference between a football, a bat and a hockey court. This guy is not — he’s just all — he’s just all weeping.”

Carville was reacting to earlier comments Sunday on Fox News, where Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina made it clear that he was not a fan of Beck. [CNN.com – political ticker-Beck is ‘out and out nuts,’ Carville says]

Oh, and that bit about Beck being among those who were absolutely “giddy” when the US lost the Olympics? It clearly puts Carville among the White House hirelings who all have mouthed the very same words and on the very same network, CNN. [see VotingFemale Friends Speak!  – Presidential Loss Of Olympic Proportion and of Rowan Martin – Moses, Take a Memo.]

Actually, to hear these same key words repeated by two different talking heads on the same network makes me queasy.  It also makes me pause to think – is this  how low we have gone in this country? We’re so dumb out here in TV land that we have to have things drummed into us?   Worse, there is no acceptable way of saying the unacceptable anymore?  You just blurt out the unacceptable and laugh about it with your fellows and that makes it OK.  But media protocol is a whole other essay or tome!

Snake Head, why wouldn’t Glenn Beck cry?  You and your bosses are making him and whole communities across America cry.  People voted for an administration and got a wrecking crew. The election is over. You can stop campaigning any day now. You remind me of someone stopping to beat roadkill – pointless.  Even were you a snake, you’re not a big beautiful boa or diamondback; you’re a slithering little sidewinder. You’re not cute anymore – except to Mary and the girls – and that’s how it should be.

From SamHenry, Editor

In these United States when we think of vulnerability on the national level, we immediately think of the inadequately monitored borders at Mexico and Canada.

But what about that endless border in Cyberspace?  How many guards do we have there?  Government oversight of the internet is so convoluted and spread out that it is hard to tell how many cyber cops the nation has.

With offensive measures and immediate responses to attack critical, it is  unsettling   that, although new departments, divisions and agencies have been created to streamline our defense against cyber crime/terrorism, many feel these initiatives have only added to rather than reduced the bureaucratic layers involved in the process.  Obama’s own initiatives in this regard already point to reorganization and continued confusion.

One thing is certain, it is the Executive Branch of the federal government that has the most oversight of the internet throughout several departments — Justice, Homeland Security and the Office of the President – an office that seeks further extend the President’s control over the internet during times of national emergency [he already has authority in this area].

Obama wants a cyber security czar but is dragging his feet in appointing one. Many think the post should be filled as soon as possible. He may wait for the passage of his two “stealth” bills in Congress -Senate bills 773 and 778 or the Cyber Security Act 2009. Will these fly through or will citizens awaken to this and hamper progress?

Pre-2009 Government Cyber Security Initiatives:

  • US-CERT, United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team is the nation’s primary early warning system for cyber threats. Established in 2003 and located at Carnegie Mellon University, it protects the nation’s Internet infrastructure and coordinates defense against and responses to cyber attacks across the nation. The US-CERT Current Activity web page is a regularly updated summary of the most frequent, high-impact types of security incidents currently being reported.
  • In 2003, the National Cybersecurity Division (NCSD) was created as a division of the Office of Cyber Security & Communications within the US Department of Homeland Security.  Charged with improving the United States defense against Internet-based attacks, it is an amalgam of a number of agencies that were sprinkled throughout the vast national bureaucracy, including the former National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) that was under control of the FBI, the Department of Commerce’s Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office, and the General Services Administration’s Federal Computer Incident Response Center.  It works closely with the public and with companies.

President Obama’s White House Initiatives:

  • 2009, the administration signed an agreement with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) that loosens the U.S. government’s grip on the entity that administers the domain name system. There is concern that this agreement may have implications for potential legal and security risks if foreign powers are involved with the oversight and handling of data.
  • President Obama’s joint national security and homeland security directive creating a National Cyber Security Initiative.  The goal here is to inform people at home and at work what steps they may easily take to protect themselves from cyber crime/terrorism.
  • Pending -Senate bills 773 and 778, introduced by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.V., are both part of what’s being called the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, which would create a new Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor, reportable directly to the president and charged with defending the country from cyber attack. Presidential powers over emergency handling of the internet would be increased.

Clearly, the Obama Administration has been looking closely at the internet and internet issues since day one.   Earlier this year, China moved to require installation of a type of filtering software on all PCs that would let them censor sites on the internet. They backed away from implementation of it beyond schools. The fact that this kind of capability exists has been eye-opening.

It is a well-documented fact that China and Russia spend more money and have more men and materiel devoted to cyberspace. Many of the breaches of our national systems have originated in China.  The problem with a democracy with a penchant for bureaucracy is that it is difficult to tell who is responsible – even with initiatives in place to clarify initiatives.

The President perhaps should not be as eager to confirm or enhance his emergency powers over the internet. He should keep his head down. He may just find all of the calls regarding all things internet coming to his office.  Who knows, he may have to call India to find out who in his government he can contact for help.
