Concerning James O’Keefe and US Foreign Policy

In response to Constitutional Lawyer Jonathan Turley‘s resent blog post:

okeefeConservative Filmmaker James O’Keefe Suspended By Twitter.

“… Twitter has become a lightening rod for the free speech community — repeatedly accused of content-based censorship and a liberal bias. Twitter was recently accused of a departure from the policy of unfettered free speech in the filtering of negative comments against President Barack Obama. Then Twitter banned Milo Yiannopoulos in a very disturbing move against a conservative speaker. Now, Twitter is back in the news targeting another conservative. After releasing two viral videos, Project Veritas Founder and President James O’Keefe was barred from access to his Twitter account for 12 hours (with review for a permanent ban). Twitter again appears to have little explanation for suspending another conservative other than the content of his speech.”

Perhaps we don’t have to go much further than the following:

prince-alwaleed-bin-talal-bin-abdulaziz-alsaud

Saudi Prince owns more of Twitter than Twitter’s CEO

Saudis bankroll 20% of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign – expects pay to play

Saudi Prince Bankrolls al qaeda

Pro Saudi Women’s Group Suspended On Twitter

Twitter Fight: Trump vs Saudi Prince

trumpvsprince

.
.

Then there is the Saudi and US heartless and devastating bombing of Yemen; armed by the US and Israel. The funding of the rebels in Syria; armed by US and Israeli. The funding of al qaeda in Libya; armed by the US and Israel. The funding of Mossad/ISIS, and the funding/arming of Israeli and Saudi aggression against the Palestinians.

Bush43 should have been arrested for a lot of things, from illegal wars to war crimes, however, this has to be one of the most egregious

Further, the Saudi influence over Obama via his veto of the 911 bill that would have allowed the families of 911 to sue the Saudis  — (Congress Override), and finally, the $38 Billion to Israel, guaranteeing 10 more years of war for Americans.

If only a number of these topics were questions in the presidential campaign and debate.

The US needs to pull out of the Middle East and leave the bulk of that hot mess to China, EU and Russia. Americans need to stop being the world’s police for debt, and start minding its own business.

The only thing the Saudis have is oil and fiat, both which the US can find elsewhere, and both, through technology, the US can do without their supply. Lastly, the US needs to divorce being the sole patron of Israel. US engagement in the Middle East has bought the American People nothing, but heartache, slavery and death.

If Hillary is elected; by hook or by crook, the only way out of the Saudi’s and the Israeli’s aggressive influences will be secession. If Trump is elected the Union will more or less remain, however, we will see a different president elected every 4 years for decades to come.

All Things Donald Trump

Not really, but I love you all!

Democrats do not inspire me to vote at all – they have screwed progressive left and right for at least the last 20 years.

Bernie Sanders who is supposed to be the beacon of a socialist progressive movement built nothing in his 30 years other than a soapbox which he stood on taking the opportunity to utter some choice, but empty words on the floor of the House and Senate all the while collecting a pretty hefty government paycheck for that privilege – $175k a year, plus benefits and a spectacular pension. 30 years as a progressive socialist democrat and what coalition did he build? Nothing. But, he has stood by the funding of every war and proxy-war under Clinton, Bush and Obama and he stands with Israel on everything even as they slaughtered over 600 innocent children in Gaza last summer. Actually, Bernie’s actions appear to be more pro-Israel than pro-American.

It’s next to impossible for a progressive to even think of voting for the GOP, however, Ron Paul was outside the GOP box, he was anti-war and anti-bank bailout, he gained plenty of points with progressives on the moral high ground. However, when he ran for president in 2012 the MSM and the GOP kept fudging the numbers even though he actually won the early primaries. Further, during the party nomination the GOP changed the rules at the last minute preventing Ron Paul from making a statement, so of course the GOP can’t be trusted.

trumppomWhich brings us to Donald Trump -The Donald- already the GOP is trying to give him a hard time because he’s not beholden to their corporate master and corporate contributors like the rest of the party, and with his rhetoric he’s spilling the beans on all the corruption within the system; both parties, something he admits to being very well versed in and has taken full and whole advantage of.

This in turn makes Trump the anti-candidate’s candidate, which broadens his appeal to a citizenry of those fed-up with the two parties and those refusing to even show up to the polls in 2016. Trump is gathering little r republicans as well as little d democrats and everyone around and in-between.

Along with buying and playing-the-system for decades he’s a tough guy to like on a number of personal levels. The question is then, do you need to love or like the guy who gets the job done? Do you like everyone at work or everyone in your neighborhood? Trump is not beholden to a party or big business and though there are more than a few topics we wouldn’t see eye-to-eye on I see no other candidate who has the rare opportunity to disrupt this corrupt crony capitalist two party war mongering bank bail outing dictatorship.

Do you?

– – Let me just stop here for a brief moment and point out how un-astonished you are that the wealthy own our system of government and that in the back of your mind you know they aren’t supposed to, but you feel helpless to change it. – –

In some ways the hopeful and hard working American People are taking a gamble, who side is Donald Trump on? Does he really believe what he says about making America great again, or is his run for the Presidency of the United States of America pure ego, legacy leaving, or worse, an elaborate vulture capitalist plot to sell the country off piece by piece in a leveraged buy-out?

Trump uses the word “killer” when it comes to making or cutting a deal, he says that because these people, these corporations, these lobbyist, these foreign leaders and all these politicians behind the scenes are all killers and that being a practicing killer in finance himself he knows what makes these people tick and how to deal with them.

I know I’m tired of being killed, and I’m thinking maybe it’s time to hire a killer to kill the killers.

So I ask this question, could Donald Trump be America’s Harry Tuttle?

Can you trust him?

Hugh Hewitt Interview

09/04/15
As the new car now gets its first scratch.
RE: Hugh Hewitt Aftermath
I don’t know why Trump put this guy down (third-rate radio show announce). The interview was actually very good and substantive. Ton of great questions to make ready for the next debates. Actually, Trump did way better than Bush43 would have and better than I expected – so that’s something. For Trump to be so defensive about historical and current events (heck, even I had to wiki the Quds) and later insult the host; who actually not only asked some very meaningful questions, but was rather pleasant throughout, actually says more about Trump as a person and as a potential leader. Trump is basically old school ‘if you don’t know everything the smart kids know you must be a weak-minded person.’ These days we call that thinned skinned. Also, anyone listening would have thought the host said Kurds too, but The Donald didn’t have to drive that mishap into the ground; which he is pron to do. This behavior is very unattractive in any person, especially a presidential candidate. It demonstrates anxiety under stress and confirms insecurity in a very public way.

One thing I thought Trump should have known was our relationship to the Kurds. Let me take you back to the 90’s, I remember how Bush41 left these poor people high and dry at the end of the first Gulf War (GWI). That pesky Truman Doctrine sullied our relationship with the Kurds right off the bat, which I agree was a great shame and was a marked event for all the little people throughout the world who no longer felt they could trust or count on the USA to do the right thing, and we keep messing that up even now (see Palestine and Yemen).

One little caveat: Had Saddam stayed in power; no Bush43 take down, hanging, and massive clusterf… in the Middle East, IOW no GWII, as Trump and myself and Bernie Sanders had wished, the Kurds would still have been under Saddam’s tortuous rule. Now they are fighting ISIS and there’s little we can do to really help them because of that damn Truman Doctrine! Course Turkeye is miffed at the US over a few other things, but that’s another story. ITMT there’s Chalabi… whoa, hang on, can’t we just stop warring and killing innocent people in far away lands for the crazy Israelis and brutal Saudis? Just give it all to the EU, they like creating and playing with conflict. Kinda why the US had a Revolution and kicked the British/Hanover (a.k.a. ze Germans) Empire (or the banks if you will) out of this country in the first place, yeah?

Let’s be the nation that extends our hand and lifts people up, not the one that reaches out and then bombs them senseless. Please.

I was just thinking, maybe this guy is our Harry Tuttle?

A new marker is being set in the US – a pre and a post Trump world.

Lessig announced his bid for the White House here.
In short his campaign is about getting big evil money out of politics – which is well and good. His claim, in short, and I agree, that until that happens we do not have a democracy. All fine and good, however, let’s say the American People can wrap their heads around the concept, what he’s trying to do; which I admit is a little tough cause it’s mostly political junkies who watch the debates and corporations own the big media so the talking heads who get paid by those big corporations aren’t going to encourage the merits of the idea and the banter – but let’s just say he gets the idea out there and people want to vote for it, the big question to ask is who’s owns the machines and who is watching them? Something Trump is going to want to be aware of too.

Still, after the first DNC debates it’s going to be really interesting to see the poll numbers.

09/10/15
I have this economic idea – paradigm really, I call it the Wealth and Achievement Index. Details soon to come… I want it to sounds fancy and official so I’m working on the verbiage. If you’d like to help make it sound super official please let me know.

09/11/15
This is the question I had for Bernie Sanders – 30 year in Congress, what did he ever build besides a soap box to stand on and a nice pension along with $175K a year salary plus benefits? Bernie “Shake your fist and fund the wars!” Sanders – where’s the beef? Where’s the grassroots organization? Where’s the self-sustaining village you built with the tax payer money and influence? Where are the role models?

This is what I believe – anyone pulling in over $75k a year are fine with capitalism as is – in fact a good number of verbal-do-gooders these days make a nice living complaining about it, and still they’ve built nothing to lift up the working people eager to participate. These “wise” voices for the little people don’t have to be the role models – they don’t have to live like Gandhi – they just have to lend their name to a smart sounding website and tell the world what it already knows in a clever and concise way.

Meanwhile, Trump built the shit – and it is shitty shit – but he built this shit cause there was nothing out there to counter his brand. Even now as those who complain about the elite are still serving the elite while collecting a pay check siting on their hands building nothing. Maybe they think their words are so wise and so clever that the masses will spontaneously awaken all at once bringing good and justice back to the world, just… cause?

– today’s word is, decimate.

An idea for the 9/16 CNN Debate:
Trump should wear his soft Trump Cap on stage or pull it out of his pocket at an opportune time; with a modicum of decorum of course, and while placing it on his head ask the audience, “Whose caps do these other candidates wear? Who do they really represent? Who owns them in this election? Whose money are they beholden to? Because I, Donald Trump am not beholden to any one, but the American People.”

If done well I would expect a roar of cheers from the audience, his numbers jumping through the roof, and for the most part locking up this side of the election.

Now this could be seen as a stunt by some; and it will by those who already hate the guy, and to some extent it is a stunt, but as a visual tool I can think of nothing that would drives this very important point home at this particular time in the election. In fact, I think he will gain the admiration of some of his descenters who will think, while smiling wryly, “What a brilliant political move!”

We have to admit Americans are a visual people and as a candidate running for office one has to find ways to grab their short attention span and leave them with a sagacious and indelible image.

Even if Trump doesn’t succeed in the end this will not only be fun for him, it’ll forever be referenced in this and every other election heretofore.

Like him or not, there are some very powerful and evil groups uniting against him now, and for all the things you may dislike about him everyone has to admit the guy’s got moxie and that is exactly the kind of enthusiasm needed to drive the American People to the polls on election day.

If I could, I would have the candidates wear stickers on their heads or jackets with all the corporate logos and names of the wealthy people who own them sewn in, cause anyone reading this knows they are owned. Since we are denied this truth what better way than Trump using his name, his brand, to drive the point home, in this case for the good rather than for profit.

-One little side note – even democrats are coming around with the candidacy of Lawrence Lessig jumping into the mix. Of course the DNC will do everything in their power to keep him out of the debate, but if he is able to make his way in; for his time in the running, he will be a constant reminder of the message he shares with Trump.

Up next, the little woman?

The GOP sure has come a long way from Pat Nixon’s respectable Republican cloth coat.

I think Trump knows Melania is a game changer, which is why he and his team keep putting off her long awaited debut in front of the crowds and cameras. I’d wager a Trump Tower he’d wait until the August 2016 nomination if he could.

Campaign Trail
Day After The 2nd Debates
Audience Questions:

After taking a comment by a women who is having visions of Americans being poured into boxcars and a new Holocaust on the horizon…. a young girl asks,
“When will we meet your first lady?”
Trump replied, “That sounds good. Wow! That sounds so great. Thank you darling.”

A question or two later a man stood up and began reciting 1 Timothy 3

So what does it say about a 69 year old man marring a women 25 years his younger? Well, other than the standard answer, “Oh, nurse!” I think Trump sees the electorate in America as being part of a manly man’s world and women, although admired, are best kept like pets. At one point in the 2nd debate I thought he would walk over and pat Carly Fiorina on the head and say, “Good Girl!”

I also believe, outside the chiding and some off-the-wall hard core feminists the left will have an easier time with Mrs.Trump than the Christian Right, especially, all the nude and very provocative photos that are floating all over the net right now – something about dignity and modesty, gold-digging, trophy-wife and all the things that are traditionally associated with lose women.

Melania will be Trump’s ut-oh #3 and her past his downfall

You can see the other candidates now drooling at the mouth, not because they desire his sexy hot wife, well some perhaps; probably Clinton, Bill, but mostly over grabbing a chunk of Donald’s massive poll numbers. Right now it’s a matter of how long he can keep his number’s up while keeping his wife blurred in the background and how long his challengers can afford to stay in the race until he brings her out.

So The Donald says he’s going to really really take care of the vets, this of course is great news – can’t go around tricking these young guys and then just dump them on the side of the road. So I asked him a question on his facebook entry – “Mr Trump this is who Bush and Cheney put in charge after they bombed the Taliban; who we now know were willing to negotiate. When President Mr Trump, please arrests Bush Cheney and Obama for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Actually that does sound more like a request than a question… hmmm… Well I’ll give him a few days to see if he brings the topic up and then turn this statement into a proper question.

9/25/15
Well, I didn’t think I’d be writing again so soon, but things have gotten weird. The attacks on Trump by members of the mostly neocons and neo-liberal media has grown vicious. I can’t tell if they are going out of their way to be such slime-balls in order to help Trump win the white house or if they are really that stupid? I’m going with stupid because I think they are beyond arrogant and trite. I’ll fill in all the details later (LoweryFOX – Southpark – MSNBC – Salon) – but for now it’s astounding how little they understand the American People.

1. Americans love an underdog. 2. Their foul mouths are making Trump more endearing to everyone around him and yes, to many liberals as well.

People can see Trump is Trump. This is the way he is, but the people attacking him come off so bitter and beastly I’m actually quite shocked.

In the South Park parody we all know it’s South Park – what’s new, eh? but these so called professional and adults journalists are taking to it like they were fantasizing about doing this horrible act to another human being themselves. Can you imagine if they portrayed Carly or Hillary as victims of a vicious rape and beaten to death? Perhaps, you can still say, oh well, this is South Park, free speech and all that, but would any of these so called professionals be reveling in it? Surely there would be a number of blogs demanding an apology and screaming, “Rape is not funny in any form!” Sop far, not a peep. Not even any condemnation from any of the other candidates and there are those in the media who are fine with that too.

I am truly frightened. Especially, for and from the left, and I voted Green in the last election.

I’ll add more to this as the day progresses.

btw my last unscientific poll of 18 year olds all knew who Trump was, none knew Biden, half knew Hillary and 1 knew Sanders, or thought she did. I’ll be doing another perhaps today.

09/26/15
Well, the end of the world didn’t happen.
Results on poll same as above save no one knew Sanders and one knew Biden.
Boehner quit. Why, really? Is something bad about to happen?
Donald said he believes in God, that he is a Christian – will he change our Darwinian financial system to reflect the teachings of Jesus? He also said he’s gonna bring back Christmas.

09/27/15
No one has united people who hate the MSM more – across the spectrum – like  Trump. The more the media bashes him the tighter and bigger this group gets.

09/30/15
Noticing that Right Wing Radio, especially after Trump’s Federal tax plan, are really hating The Donald. These are a group of people who have no problem with the bank bailouts, trillions of lost pentagon money and massive corporate subsidies. They believe that cutting taxes on the working poor will send a message that these poor people will no longer have a stake in America, and that they want everything for free – set aside all the taxes and fees on goods, roads and utilities everyone pays regardless of income – level things out just a bit and they believe we’re crating a dependent class. Under part of Trumps plan singles making less than $25k save $800 a year and married under $50k save up to $3400. No, you can’t give these folks a break – even though that pittance will actually give the economy a little boost, help some people get out of debt and help pay for healthcare and for some a higher education. No, no, no, these right wing arrogant fat heads want slaves. Let’s say it out loud – they are slavers and cheats! In order to join their ranks you must achieve success as they did by using people and cheating their way to an all too high income for what ever it is they do, which is very little. I’m going to start calling these assholes Walkers, because they are just like Scott Walker, bitter, brow beaten by their wives with the intellect of falling over the 70% IQ wall.

side note: when the Federal Income Tax was established in 1913, the burden of a Federal Tax fell on those who made over $5k a year – notice you still have to file if you make over $5k a year. Thing is, adjusted for inflation, that amount should be over $120k a year. Another reason to keep bankers far away from your government. We need to add an extra layer to the separation of church and state, a separation of banks and state. Don’t kid yourselves money is a god.

kinda not buyin’ the super-fan (Hispanic women) – I don’t know exactly why, something about her seems rehearsed …

10/17/15
Post #DEMDEBATE – I see this as a precursor disaster for the Democrats.
1. Judas Goat Sanders – did it again, he tossed his supporters under the bus.
2. The DNC and MSM had to lie stating that Hillary won the debate and that the DNC is now standing behind Clinton.
3. They kept Lessig out of the debate.

NOW: Thinking more about the little women coming out during the campaign for her man, soon, someday, who knows when – Thanksgiving maybe? The daughter, Ivanka (from a previous marriage), will be joining her it seems on Women’s Health Issues. This was a brilliant move since Trump’s wife, Melania – no one knows her name, no one can pronounce her name properly, and she has a foreign accent – posed nude and she is 25 years younger than Trump, is going to presents a number of problems. The focus on Women’s Health Issues almost nullifies her past, will keep most woman in line with that cause, and deplete enough ammunition from the left and hard core feminists. Men of course will love it!

Back to the 3 ut-ohs
Ut-oh #1 Epstein – So far Hillary is the choice for the DNC, but to make this guy an issue they have to ask why Bill is in this guy’s phone book as well. Trump being a businessman and in real estate could dodge this one fairly easy – how can Bill? Ex-presidents have no business cavorting around with such characters for any length of time and they seem to be good pals – scary and creepy.
Ut-oh #2 Student Loans – Certainly this can be written off as poor management with plenty of others to blame.
Ut-oh #3 The little (nude) woman – Women’s Health Issues.

Looks like The Donald might be able to grow a Teflon coat after all.

No one currently running is Ralph Nader or even Eisenhower, and both parties have gone way beyond Nixon. Will Trump make a difference? Well, he’s not a Clinton or a Bush so that’s different…

 

10/22/15
Trump’s Plans:
1. economics/tariffs on US corporations? errrr… NAFTA
2. the wall = really should change the 1965 immigration law first, and I think most illegals fly in and overstay their welcome
3. Obamacare = Trumpcare? What is it besides, ya know, great?

Will everything have to be an executive order, King Trump?

 

11/17/15
Been a while since I added anything to this post –

The Donald’s polls are up, there was a whole Ben Carson thing – surprisingly the bashing by Donald didn’t hurt his numbers, course the Paris bombings certainly helped him.

The GOP elite still want to get rid of Trump, but Paris was a shot in the arm.

One of the ut-ohs (see:09/18/15 & 10/17/15) is coming up this week, the wife. We’ll see how that goes. As I predicted it happens just before the holiday; allowing enough time to forget, but get used to seeing her. Most men will drool, secular women will envy, but the religious right ain’t gonna like her and neither will the feminist. She’ll have to convince the jealous and xenophobes in the middle. I can’t see her helping his campaign, but it could hurt it – timing is everything, his numbers are high some say 42%, he can afford to lose a bit. Fate seems to be shinning on his campaign, albeit tragic events are helping to drive his numbers.

Thanksgiving update

“It’s the lie that gets ya”- Richard Nixon

DT doubling down on the Muslim dancing on the roof lie is very unattractive.

He said he saw them himself, but so far he can’t prove it. Okay fine, but let’s at least see some video – 1000 Muslims tailgating and dancing on roof tops in 2001…. should be some handicam footage out there somewhere, no?

Do far, to date; ZERO ZIP ZILCH NADA REIN NONE

Maybe Trump was confused… ya know, brown people

Thing is, what we do have are Israelis in New Jersey dancing and cheering and making cell calls and high fiving and confessing on TV… and no one will talk about that, least of all Trump. That’s how afraid people are of Netanyahu’s NZO. Even Trump.

Anyway, this one won’t go away, which is kinda odd cause I thought the student loan scam, his 15 year relationship with his pedophile friend or the naked wife would have done him in.

Should be interesting to note it’s his own big mouth that is sinking his ship. Not sure Americans will go for a bully who lies. That’s what he’s looking like right now.

I give up- from here on out it’s Trump in pictures

…life goes on
Can Trump generate more than just an audience, can he generate the vote?
Is Hillary the best women can do?
Is Sanders actually a closet war monger?

01/23/16
So this last week is when it happen – not sure it’s the polls in connection to Iowa, Cruz’s blunders or Hillary’s 5 minutes, but Right Wing Radio has made the switch to Trump. They are now more worried about Sanders winning.

02/07/16
Iowa has come and gone, New Hampshire’s on the horizon. Cruz and Hillary won – both by deception. However, both Sanders and Trump are slated to win NH. Seems the people aren’t falling for the elitist status quo. RWRadio is back to bashing Trump pushing Rubio now, rumors flying that Rubio is a coke head and in his youth gay- not that there’s anything wrong with that. It’s still unknown if Sanders or Trump will make it. By Super Tuesday we should have a better idea. I had thought by now Trump would have faded and Hillary would have killed Sanders, but both are saying the right things and that are keeping the American People engaged, interested and on their side. Let’s hope they continue to live.

looking like he will make it all the way – unless some one takes him down physically.

 

03/23/16
Ted comes out swinging with Ut Oh #3; the little woman porn.

Trump has crushed the student loan scandal, for now.
The Epstein is still on the table for Cruz. Let’s see if he uses it.

I’ve pulled back: After Trumps speech at AIPAC where he demonstrated that he is more beholden and committed to Israel than to the United States and the American People and now seeing the list of who his foreign advisors are. I’ve come to conclusion that I can not support Trump. However, my vote would have only been cast if there were a tight race between Trump and Hillary, and if my vote could make a difference in my state. I do feel disappointed and let down by this new information and these revelations. I see no other choice than to push for a brokered convention with the hope that Trump and Sanders run as independent candidates and that we start to dismantle this two party dictatorship, or that states find it in their best interest to secede.

great argument

 

well…

THE LIST OF REASONS WHY NOT – and the list is growing

welp I thought we jumped the shark in December

apparently, I was wrong
.

July 25th
kind of gave up on this entry, but as we are now we are pretty much in the stretch impressions might be worthwhile.

Trump won the RNC nomination last week as expected.

The Democrats are a mess, but that never stopped a Clinton from lying and cheating. For Trump to win he will have to do everything in his power to stop Hillary. Most of all win big in key states, this can’t be a close election because it’s too easy for the DNC to rig the vote – and worse than they did against Bernie.

Trump will have to assure the real republicans and Reagan democrats show up in big numbers. The Neocons have moved over to Hillary. Jill Stein will have to work hard to get as many Bernie voters as she can.

If Bill Clinton was the first black president, then we’ve already had a first female president – Barack Obama.

Will Trump be good for the nation? We know what Hillary will do, she IS a war criminal. It is known.

Trump is a gamble… but if he ends the wars and the bank bailouts that will be a tremendous jump in the right direction. Hillary will keep us all struggling and worse bomb more people for money and power.

“Exclusive rough-cut of first in-depth documentary on WikiLeaks and the people behind it!

From summer 2010 until now, Swedish Television has been following the secretive media network WikiLeaks and its enigmatic Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange.

Reporters Jesper Huor and Bosse Lindquist have traveled to key countries where WikiLeaks operates, interviewing top members, such as Assange, new Spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson, as well as people like Daniel Domscheit-Berg who now is starting his own version – Openleaks.org!

Where is the secretive organization heading? Stronger than ever, or broken by the US? Who is Assange: champion of freedom, spy or rapist? What are his objectives? What are the consequences for the internet?” © svt

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”

Center for Responsive Politics Releases Preliminary Analysis of Second Quarter Lobbying Figures
Lobbyists were paid at least $349.2 million for their services between April and June, according to a partial analysis of their quarterly reports filed with the Senate Office of Public Records on Monday.
Although this overall expenditure appears to be a decrease from the first quarter, when lobbyists brought in $807.3 million, the Center for Responsive Politics expects to receive and process at least 7,700 more filings in the next week.

So while the $349.2 million will likely increase, we’re not sure yet by how much. But we will report on any increase next week.

Last year, lobbying expenditures increased 3.4 percent between the first and second quarters, from $798.1 million to $825.3 million.

If that trend holds true this year, too, clients would have paid out about $834.7 million between April and June. In the past six months lobbyists have been busy with a number of major legislative initiatives, including health care reform, financial regulation and climate change.

In all, 19,251 lobbying contracts were active for this year’s first quarter. To date, CRP has processed 11,482 contracts for the second quarter, although this number is also expected to increase significantly in coming days.

Next week, when we have more of the reports in, we’ll provide an update on these numbers. We’ll also be adding the new numbers to our lobbying database and blogging about industries and interests as we code and calculate that data. source

GOLDEN! SPREAD

This is Congressman Alan Grayson questioning Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on $550B of loans to foreigners (or ‘central liquidity swaps’ in Federal Reserve-ese’).

Which financial institutions received this money? Bernanke’s answer: I don’t know.

As the Fed was lending this money, the dollar increased by 30% in value. Grayson asks, was this a coincidence? Bernanke’s answer: yes.

Bernanke Fights Audit Threat To The Fed

Central bank chief argues more review would compromise independence, seeking to deny legislative victory for one of Fed’s biggest opponents.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke faced a grilling in Congress on Tuesday about the role of the Fed, and spoke out strongly against a legislative proposal to audit the central bank.

Speaking to the House Financial Services Committee, Bernanke tempered optimism that the economy is improving, noting that, “despite these positive signs, the rate of job loss remains high and the unemployment rate has continued its steep rise.” He added the Fed expects inflation to remain subdued over the next two years.

He discussed the Federal Reserve’s strategy to extricate itself from the outsized role it’s taken in the economy to avert financial disaster. He reminded Congress about the need to get the budget deficit fixed: If not, “we risk having neither financial stability nor durable economic growth,” he said.

Bernanke also came out in strong opposition to legislation proposed by Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, to audit the Federal Reserve.

Since its introduction in February, the bill has attracted 275 co-sponsors, enough to gain passage in the House of Representatives. In the Senate, the prospects are unclear. Fourteen Republicans, three Democrats and one Independent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who votes with Democrats, have signed on to the bill. The legislation simply calls for a Government Accountability Office audit of the Federal Reserve.

Why is something that sounds so simple so contentious? more

RE: Spacey On Letterman
Twitter is a way to advertise or network – what the folks at twitter need to offer is an options that allows users to easily bulk accept or reject people who want to follow – blocking is too much work and only encourages spam; which is what wastes most of the bandwidth. Spammers will still try, but it would be a deterrent.

Kevin Spacey may have 800k followers, but how many of those followers are SPAMMERS!?

My guess, at least one-third.

They don’t count.

Further, anyone who has a high number of followers are using twitter to advertise or stay relevant with their base, which is okay, but it’s not actually social networking unless you follow back.

I’m thinking of instituting the 30 day rule of relevance: If I follow you, tweet you with at least three pieces of wisdom, help or a laugh and you don’t respond in kind or acknowledge my presence I will un-follow.

Fair nuff?

I have more to say about twitter, but I’m already way over my 140 chrtrs.

I don’t partake, but I’ve heard enough evidence that it works well for people who are suffering from the ill effects of chemo and other detrimental maladies. I  don’t believe that the expressed confidence in this plant by so many random people would say it works just to get a buzz. I’m convinced, therefore this plant should be made legals and controlled by the FDA for distribution and allowed to be grown, within legal limits,  in the garden.

Dimon and his wife, Judy, have donated more than a half-million dollars to Democratic candidates and committees since 1989, according to a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of his donations. That is nearly 12 times what the couple has given the GOP.
Dimon seems to exert considerable influence within Democratic circles at a time when JPMorgan and other banks still owe the federal government billions of dollars after last year’s bailouts.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was scheduled to attend JPMorgan board meeting this week. He declined to attend after the New York Times profiled Dimon and mentioned the invitation prominently. more

Apple’s Image May Be Tarnished By Poor Factory Conditions
Following an investigation on Tuesday into many Chinese companies violating recent labor laws, it’s now known through Apple’s 2009 responsibility progress report that 45 of the 83 factories that built iPhones and iPods in 2008 weren’t paying valid overtime rates for those workers that qualified, while 23 of these weren’t even paying some of their workers China’s minimum wage.

A deeper look at Apple’s findings found that about 25 of the 83 also discriminated to some degree against people based on ethnicity, biological issues like disabilities, or political leanings. 22 didn’t meet environmental standards, while almost exactly a fifth also had problems with on-site living conditions and safety.

In a few extreme cases, seven factories had been caught having at least at one time hired underage workers, though were weren’t more than 25 people involved. Some workers at six factories also had to enter debt to a recruitment agency just to start work and were effectively forced to work to pay off their recruiters.apple insider

Rebellion on the Range Over a Cattle ID Plan
Wranglers at the Platt ranch were marking calves the old-fashioned way last week, roping them from horseback and burning a brand onto their haunches.

What they were emphatically not doing, said Jay Platt, the third-generation proprietor of the ranch, was abiding by a federally recommended livestock identification plan, intended to speed the tracing of animal diseases, that has caused an uproar among ranchers. They were not attaching the recommended tags with microchips that would allow the computerized recording of livestock movements from birth to the slaughterhouse.

Pensioners ‘kidnap and torture’ Financial Adviser
The incident began on Tuesday last week as he made his way home after enjoying a drink at an outdoor café with a friend.

Mr Amburn, the boss of an investment firm called Digitalglobalnet, was allegedly attacked by two men – aged 74 and 60 – as he entered his apartment building.

“Then they bound me with masking tape until I looked like a mummy. It took them quite a while because they ran out of breath. When they loaded me into the car I thought I was a dead man.”

APTOPIX Mideast Iran Election

Are the Iranian Protests Another US Orchestrated “Color Revolution?”
-sh
The protests in Tehran no doubt have many sincere participants. The protests also have the hallmarks of the CIA orchestrated protests in Georgia and Ukraine. It requires total blindness not to see this.

On May 23, 2007, Brian Ross and Richard Esposito reported on ABC News: “The CIA has received secret presidential approval to mount a covert “black” operation to destabilize the Iranian government, current and former officials in the intelligence community tell ABC News.”

On May 27, 2007, the London Telegraph independently reported: “Mr. Bush has signed an official document endorsing CIA plans for a propaganda and disinformation campaign intended to destabilize, and eventually topple, the theocratic rule of the mullahs.”

A few days previously, the Telegraph reported on May 16, 2007, that Bush administration neocon warmonger John Bolton told the Telegraph that a US military attack on Iran would “be a ‘last option’ after economic sanctions and attempts to foment a popular revolution had failed.”

On June 29, 2008, Seymour Hersh reported in the New Yorker: “Late last year, Congress agreed to a request from President Bush to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran, according to current and former military, intelligence, and congressional sources. These operations, for which the President sought up to four hundred million dollars, were described in a Presidential Finding signed by Bush, and are designed to destabilize the country’s religious leadership.”
this isn’t conspiracy theory  stuff folks

Who Put the ‘green’ in the Green Revolution?
The United States, of course.
As in the previous “color revolutions” that seem to tirelessly capture the romantic imagination of US journalists, elites, and the propagandized population, the warm embrace of the US empire is firmly guiding the “spontaneous” Iranian uprising against last week’s election results. While I do not and should not– nor should any other American — care in the slightest who rules a country some seven thousand miles away, when the fingerprints of the US empire show up on these dramatic events overseas it is very much my business.

Mexicans have seen almost 5700 gang slayings last year, 1200 more than all the U.S. military casualties in 5 years of war in Iraq – Assassinations, Beheadings, Kidnapping, Children Made to Drink Acid, Ransom, Blackmail, Dismemberment, People striped naked and left hanging from sign posts, bridges and trees . It’s not just gang members fueling these wars,  others with scores to settle or using the gang wars to prey on innocent people. Children at school in playgrounds find they are in the middle of a gun war and it is all spilling over into US border towns.

You Think Iran Is A Mess Look At What’s Happening On The US Border Drug-cartel fueled violence has turned into a war in Mexico, with thousands of deaths  and the government, which has been infiltrated by the cartel are battling gangs whose weapons come mostly from U.S. dealers and an insatiable needs by the American People illicit and  illegal drugs.

ObamaReaganOP ED: Obama Needs a Shot of Reagan

Obama needs to tell the House and Senate, “That it is unconscionable, immoral, shameful and cruel that we all here in our Nation’s Capital are covered by one of the best health cares plans in the world and the people who pay for that coverage are not or can not afford what we all here take for granted.”

Obama needs to show that he is a pillar of strength and determination. Give him what he wants or he will go to the American Public on TV, radio, like Reagan, and the internet non stop.

Democrats up for election in 2010 shouldn’t bother to seek his help or assistance if they don’t give him a Bill that covers every American; they can face the uninsured or under-insured alone at their local town hall meetings.

You can’t bail out failed wealthy CEOs and bankers and not give the people who are paying the bills health care so they can keep working to pay the debt and personal wealth CEOs have acquired and accumulated.

Yes, the system and life aint fair, but then there’s prison.

From those working the system or around it to our own lack of civic duty catching the faults and making corrections before tragedy strikes, few are blameless.

If Republicans whine, Obama needs to ask, “Where was the outrage when the American People bailed out these free market failing banks and continued to pay the bonuses and salaries of wealthy boards and CEOs? They can’t fain amnesia now when it was a Republican Administration that got us in this mess, set by one of their own Goldman Sachs Free Marketers Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson who issued the TARP deal of no choice. Why didn’t the GOP call for his resignation then? Is their only defense that these so called Wall Street Capitalists deserved our gratitude with tax payer funds because they are somehow more equal than others?”

Like it or not we bailed out the banks, wealthy corporation and took a huge hit to our savings, the reality is that Wall Street and the Little People are now attached at the hip and nothing’s free fellas.

So let’s try and be fair remembering we are not only individuals, but citizens of a great nation. Let’s catch up with technology, psychology, and science in our modern world, incorporate the better tenants religion has to offer, take the tools we have and work up from there never forgetting the public good.

Like it or not, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

Defense Department sees Protests as Terrorism
-sh
Antiterrorism training materials used by the Department of Defense teach that public protests should be regarded as “low-level terrorism,” according to a letter of complaint sent to the department by the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California.

“Teaching employees that dissent on issues of public concern is something to be feared, rather than encouraged, is a dangerously counterproductive use of scarce security resources, making us less safe as a democracy,” Northern California ACLU staff attorney Ann Brick and ACLU Washington national security policy counsel Michael German wrote in the letter to Gail McGinn, acting undersecretary of Defense for personnel and readiness.

“DOD employees cannot accomplish their mission of protecting our nation and its values unless they understand that those values encompass the right to criticize our government through protest activities,” they wrote. “It is imperative that they are taught the difference between political, religious or social activism and terrorism.”

changeIn Poll, Wide Support for Government-Run Health
Americans overwhelmingly support substantial changes to the health care system and are strongly behind one of the most contentious proposals Congress is considering, a government-run insurance plan to compete with private insurers, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

The poll found that most Americans would be willing to pay higher taxes so everyone could have health insurance and that they said the government could do a better job of holding down health-care costs than the private sector.

Yet the survey also revealed considerable unease about the impact of heightened government involvement, on both the economy and the quality of the respondents’ own medical care. While 85 percent of respondents said the health care system needed to be fundamentally changed or completely rebuilt, 77 percent said they were very or somewhat satisfied with the quality of their own care.

That paradox was skillfully exploited by opponents of the last failed attempt at overhauling the health system, during former President Bill Clinton’s first term. Sixteen years later, it underscores the tricky task facing lawmakers and President Obama as they try to address the health system’s substantial problems without igniting fears that people could lose what they like.
