Yes, yes, yes….I AM paying attention but am busy working on the rabbit hole story. For those sending emails with links…keep them coming, and for those that need to know about something other than the Obama/Boehner golf game, Bachmann and glitter, and Jon Stewart – hit the links below: (more…)
Can we impeach his ‘I don’t care about anything but the perks’ ass now?
From Karl Denninger over at Market-Ticker:
2226: The Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper, quoting a senior official of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, said the US made the offer immediately after the disaster damaged Fukushima No 1 nuclear plant. According to the unnamed senior official, US support was based on dismantling the troubled reactors run by Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) some 250 km (155 miles) northeast of Tokyo. However, the government and TEPCO thought the cooling system could be restored by themselves, the report said.

Am I reading this right?
Our government demanded that the Japanese dismantle – that is, permanently remove – over five gigawatts of power in order to help them with a critical safety problem that had the potential to destroy 100 square miles of land and kill or injure thousands of people?
That as compensation for helping them we demanded that they cripple their electrical generating capacity on a permanent basis?
You have to be kidding me.
This is an extremely serious charge. If it’s true it stands alone as grounds for impeachment and dismembering every single federal agency involved.
Perhaps this explains why the US Military and/or civilian authorities didn’t stick a couple of big-ass generators on a transport plane and get them over there, restoring power to the reactors within hours of the incident and avoiding all of the serious radiation and physical damage at the plant.
This allegation is ridiculously incendiary and demands an immediate and complete Congressional investigation. Not only do the citizens of the United States deserve to know the truth (or falsity) of this charge (and who initiated it if it is false), but so do the Japanese people.
If this is how this man treats our friends – attempting to use a crisis threatening the lives of civilians to score a political point and advance his “green” agenda…..
Incidentally there are reports that The State Department has denied the original story from the Japanese paper. I still argue we need answers – real ones – and an immediate Congressional investigation is called for.
Incidentally, Karl is right on target about an investigation, and I am wondering if Darrell Issa has heard about this yet?
Just because I am feeling unusually snarky today…

(Editor’s Note: Please keep in mind while you read this post, that the Federal Reserve Mafia was in consultation today regarding a trillion dollar policy of another round of quantitative easing, and gold jumped to a new record after the Fed’s statement about interest rates.)
Let’s talk about the Bush tax cuts and the choices that this administration, congress, and media are giving the unhappy moos across the country. Do you remember how the whole circus started a few weeks ago with Obama stating that he was going to allow the Bush tax cuts to expire, and the growing cyclone of debate that has ensued?
A current recap. Chairman Zero wants to keep the tax cuts in place for couples making less then $250k and individuals making less than $200k. Princess Pelosi believes that ‘they’ must extend the “Obama Middle Class Tax Cuts” for just the middle class, and 31 of her not-so-loyal soldiers have gone off the reservation when considering such a move. Just a few days ago, the Queen of the Swamp stated “But I see no justification for going into debt to a foreign country to underwrite and subsidize tax cuts for the wealthiest people in America.” Technically, Nancy has a point, BUT what about the $110 MILLION that went to create 55 California jobs…it’s okay to underwrite and subsidize corruption and all the rest of the silly spending these teenagers have approved? Also, according to National Review Online, a tax increase for the upper 2% of Americans would bring in a whopping $34 Billion next year; enough to cover 9 days of deficit spending. In addition, John Boehner had a ‘moment’ on a recent Sunday news show stating that he would vote for the partial tax extension if forced to, but has since backtracked. We also have had the media arguing very vocally for about two weeks about whether or not the super rich should be getting the tax extension like everybody else. Every single time you look at print or television, you hear about the Bush tax cuts expiring at the end of the year or see a countdown clock for the ‘greatest tax hike in history’ on television. Chairman Zero is even stating during speaking engagements that “giving” a tax cut extension to millionaires and above would create $700 Billion in more debt over ten years.
Let’s keep beating the ‘debt’ drum, shall we? We KNOW we are in trouble, but who exactly is responsible for the debt and the deficits?
Ready to bust out of the chute moos? Ready to understand on the most basic level why we have $13.4 TRILLION in national debt and $110.4 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities?
Question: What creates debt?
What does a person or organization pay on money that has been borrowed from someone else?
In the past when our government needed money, they took out loans from other governments to help them pay for wars, but there was a limit to the amounts they could borrow and spend.
Then along came The Federal Reserve Mafia System that created a National Credit Card for our wayward Congress. Would you like to see the INTEREST ON THE FEDERAL DEBT because of the linked banking cartel and congressional traitors who use the IRS as their mafia enforcers?

Charles, as always, cuts right down the middle on Obama’s new stimulus folly. Enjoy!
Judge Andrew Napolitano is hosting Glenn’s ‘Crash Course’ Week as Glenn is on vacation. This week’s programs will be a recap of Beck programs that have outlined the history behind the events that have been occurring in our nation since the installation of Barack Obama.
Today’s program is all about the economy, Obamacare, the travesty of the Fin-Reg bill, cutting spending, unsustainable pension funds, and the insanity of bailing out GM. I only take issue with the movement of money in the buckets (you’ll understand when you see it), as all the money that GM collected in the first bailout should have been thrown on the floor or flushed down a toilet. Then GM should have refilled their bucket from TARP and then transferred that money to the Government Loan bucket. Glenn is correct though; the taxpayers’ bucket remains empty to this day.
Excuse me? Chairman Zero states to troops at Fort Bliss on August 31st, (4:00 minute mark):
“It also means that as we transition in Iraq, that the one thing that I will insist upon for however long I remain president of the United States…”
Impeachment? The ineligibility perp-walk? The darker route the NWO takes when their puppets stop being of value? (Which could explain the lavish lifestyle and vacations.) What? This monster is dying to know…

The Department of Justice has fired a salvo in the war against patriotic Americans supporting the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The DOJ has issued Investigating Terrorism and Criminal Extremism –Terms and Concepts, a 120-page propaganda addendum described as “a glossary designed primarily as a tool for criminal justice professionals to enhance their understanding of words relating to extremist terminology, phrases, activities, symbols, organizations, and selected names that they may encounter while conducting criminal investigations or prosecutions of members of extremist organizations.”
The glossary describes the word “constitutionalist” as a “generic term for members of the ‘patriot’ movement. It is now often used to refer to members of the sovereign citizen or common law court movement. Sometimes the word ‘constitutionalist’ is also used.”
For more on the DOJ glossary, see Department of Justice Lists Constitutionalists in Extremism Guide. A PDF of the glossary is available here.
Make sure to go over to InfoWars and read the rest, and check out the related links below.
Spinning themselves silly…
How can the Obama Regime (possibly) put forward lies about who attacked whom near the Gaza Strip, and how can the NY Times print such lies and not be sued by the Israeli Government?
“The officials say that Israel’s deadly attack on a flotilla…”
Did officials inside the Obama Regime actually say this or is the NY Times making sh** up again?
Watch the video and decide for yourself who was being attacked. (I am so sick of these criminals; i.e. the White House and Sestak, Romanoff, Blagovich, and the Times’ bashing of Palin). Gateway Pundit has the story of this video broken down.
Back to the Lame Stream Media in all it’s ‘burning to ashes’ glory. Let’s all just assume that this is a true story.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration considers Israel’s blockade of Gaza to be untenable and plans to press for another approach to ensure Israel’s security while allowing more supplies into the impoverished Palestinian area, senior American officials said Wednesday.
Another approach? Like the one Israel just tried with bringing in humanitarian aid and Hamas stopped? Like Obama really gives a hoot about what happens to Israel, AND HAS ANY SAY IN IT! This guy has such delusions of grandeur, it ain’t funny. Has anybody told this guy yet that he will not be going down in history for anything positive and of substance? Don’t nobody mention Obamacare…
The officials say that Israel’s deadly attack on a flotilla trying to break the siege and the resulting international condemnation create a new opportunity to push for increased engagement with the Palestinian Authority and a less harsh policy toward Gaza.
Everybody should know that Israel was put in a ‘damned if you do and damned if you don’t’ political situation. Even Egypt tried to stop this flotilla because they happen to have ring-side seats and know what’s going on.
“There is no question that we need a new approach to Gaza,” said one official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the policy shift is still in the early stages. He was reflecting a broadly held view in the upper reaches of the administration.
“They need a new approach”? How about kicking the terrorists out of Gaza so normal people can get on with their lives on both sides? How ’bout that?
