Good News Day - Bad News Day


The Good News for the Democrats is that the Republicans are stuck with Romney.

The Bad News for the Republicans is that they are stuck with Romney.

  1. Scandal: For incompetence alone, Attorney General Eric Holder should resign in the wake of the illegal "Fast and Furious" gunrunning scandal. But fresh news that he knew of it and is covering it up warrants impeachment.

    In the latest Friday night document dump — news released as to minimize its scandalous impact on the White House — congressional investigators learned that Attorney General Holder knew all along that a gun his Justice Department intentionally let fall into the hands of Mexico's cartels was used to murder U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry on Dec. 15, 2010.

    Holder must have known right away because his Deputy Chief of Staff Monty Wilkinson received an email from then-Arizona U.S. Attorney General Dennis Burke telling him just that: "The guns found in the desert near the murder(ed) BP officer connect back to the investigation we were going to talk about — they were AK-47s purchased at a Phoenix gun store."

    According to the Daily Caller, the emails also showed that Wilkinson then "alerted" Holder about the killing of the U.S. agent.

    Since then, Wilkinson has taken the Fifth in congressional testimony and told investigators, "I don't recall," while the Justice Department on Monday declined to give any answer to the press about what Holder knew and when he knew it.

    This is classic coverup behavior — late-night document dumps, officials taking the Fifth, "I don't recall" excuses — the likes of which we haven't seen since the Nixon and Clinton years.

    Along with the false testimony that Holder gave last year to congressional investigators including Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, this never-ending case can only get worse as the damning evidence piles up.

    It leaves one question: How far does this have to go before the Obama administration decides Holder should be held accountable? Holder should resign his office immediately because the drip, drip, drip of evidence suggesting he knew all along is grounds enough.

    Instead, Holder's gotten more evasive as his involvement grows ever more obvious. That in turn is creating a growing sense that culpability and complicity for Fast and Furious extends a lot further up the chain of command than Holder.

  2. Ranking Senate Judiciary Committee member Chuck Grassley issued a statement moments ago concerning today’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee minority report absolving Justice Department officials of responsibility for the Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking” scandal.

    “The Justice Department and Attorney General Eric Holder initially denied gunwalking occurred, but have since withdrawn the denials and admitted that ATF whistleblowers were right to complain about the reckless tactic,” Grassley states.

    Citing “the constitutional responsibility of Congress to conduct oversight of the executive branch,” Grassley accuses the Justice Department of stonewalling “every step of [his] investigation.”

    “[T]he Justice Department has provided 80,000 pages of documents to the Inspector General, but has provided only 6,000 pages of documents to Congress,” Grassley reveals. “Yet, the department has provided no explanation for withholding each of those 74,000 pages.”

  3. NNice try by Elijah Cummings, but no sale.

    The other operations were small-scale controlled buys done in conjunction with Mexican authorities. They were always designed to take out the straw purchasers, and they resulted in relatively quick arrests after a much smaller sample of weapons was transferred.

    Operation Fast and Furious was conducted after BATF determined that the tactics used in the previous operations were too risky.

    How was it conducted?

    By cutting Mexico and even other ATF agents completely out of the loop, quadrupling the number of weapons smuggled, and preventing agents from making arrests. In one particularly telling incident that proves that those involved knew they were breaking the law, BATF’s Bill Newell actually forced John Dodson, an ATF agent, to provide the weapons to “dirty him up” in hopes he wouldn’t blow the whistle on the program.

    Further, Newell had direct conversations with the White House, with two individuals in the National Security Counsel. If you think he was informing the NSC, and the NSC wasn’t informing the President, I have some land to sell you.

    U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke, who was responsible for the program, was the architect of Democrat gun-banning schemes dating back 23 years, including the 1994 “assault weapons ban.” His deputy Patrick Cunningham plead his Fifth Amendment rights to avoid testifying against himself, fearing criminal prosecution just days ago.

    Let us be perfectly clear.

    The Holder Justice Department, and in all likelihood the Obama White House, conspired to violate the Arms Export Control Act, the Kingpin Act, is the accessory murder in the deaths of more than 300 Mexican civilians and BORTAC agent Brian Terry. Via other gun-walking plots in Texas, they may also bear responsibly for the guns sued to kill ICE Jaime Zapata and wound his partner, Victor Avila.

    The Obama Administration then attempted to execute a cover-up that begs for a RICO prosecution.

    Email communications between officials of this Administration show that they hoped to use the violence committed by the weapons they smuggled into Mexico in order to call for stringent restrictions on the rights of American citizens. The new long-gun reporting rule imposed on gun dealers by the ATF is a direct result of this conspiracy.

    The Obama Administration and Holder Justice Department committed felonies in what appears to be a brazen attempt to undermine the Constitutions of two nations.

    No amount of lying by Congressional Democrats can change that inconvenient truth.

  4. News of Christian imprisonment in Saudi only now reaching U.S.

    Thirty-five Christians have been jailed in Saudi Arabia for worshiping in their own homes according to a recent report. The news only surfaced this week that the Christians have been imprisoned for over a month.

    Jonathan Racho of International Christian Concern says it is no wonder that Christians there worship in their homes because of the danger they face.

    "In Saudi Arabia there is no church," says the ICC spokesman. "There is no other place of worship other than mosques -- so the Christians in Saudi Arabia only gather at their private homes to worship. And when they worship, as you can see in this particular example, they could also be arrested."

    Racho was able to talk with one of the female prisoners by phone and explains that prisoners are suffering because of lack of proper medical attention. "They told me that especially the male prisoners have been assaulted by the Saudi officials," he shares.

    One of the prisoners told Racho that a Saudi official insulted them by telling them they are non-believers, animals, and supporters of America.

    He adds the Christians are waiting for justice, which to them means their release from prison and the ability to worship freely.

  13. Well here --

    Will Obama get endorsed by all the racist groups again in 2012?
    Not just the black racist groups but also the KKK, Nazis, White Aryan Resistance, and National Alliance endorsed Obama for president in 2008.

    Rocky Suhayda, the Chairman of the American Nazi Party, said: 'White people are faced with either a n*gro, or a total nutter who happens to have a pale face. Personally I’d prefer the n*gro.'

    Tom Metzger, the Director of White Aryan Resistance, said:'The corporations are running things now, so it’s not going to make much difference who's in there, but McCain would be much worse. He’s a warmonger. He’s a scary, scary person--more dangerous than Bush...I hate the transnational corporations far more than any black person.'

    Erich Gliebe,: Chairman, National Alliance
    "Obama might be a better candidate for our cause because he’s racially conscious. One of our big things in the National Alliance is to raise the racial consciousness of our people. Young whites in universities, they’ve been stripped of any kind of racial identity. Obama may be a racist in a positive sense for his people--that will awaken a lot of the whites, knock some sense into them. They’ll see that non-white Americans are allowed to be proud of who they are, to be racially conscious, to talk about their people or their community without being attacked as being racist. Let’s face it, white people aren’t going to fight for their causes, for their kind with a white president. I don’t think McCain even acknowledges that a white race exists. He’s all about granting amnesty to illegal aliens. The fact he wants to keep us in wars in the Middle East for 100 years, that’s not a good thing. I give Obama credit, he seems to have stuck to his guns as far as pulling the troops out of Iraq. He’s a very intelligent man, an excellent speaker and has charisma. John McCain offers none of that. Perhaps the best thing for the white race is to have a black president. My only problem with Obama is perhaps he’s not black enough."

    (KENTUCKY : USA) Ucs News - The White Supremacist group known as the Ku Klux Klan has endorsed the black Democratic candidate Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States of America. In a statement released to the media, the KKK's Imperial Wizard, Ronald Edwards, confirmed the groups leadership would be instructing it's members to vote for the Illinois Senator.

    Speaking from his Kentucky office in Dawson Springs, the Imperial Wizard stated "The irresponsible economic policies of the Republican administration and John McCains failure to produce a creditable solution to the current crisis make it impossible for us to support the Arizona Senator regardless if he is white, black or purple."

    In the criminal law, an omission, or failure to act, will constitute an actus reus (Latin for "guilty act") and give rise to liability only when the law imposes a duty to act and the defendant is in breach of that duty.

    Even in context, Romney's words point out the fact that he is not ready for prime time.

    It is difficult to know what Romney is thinking by his words alone since they and his explanations of them change so often.

    However, his words on the poor will provide fodder to the left who will use them to stir up the 'rich white guy' meme. What he actually meant by the words become irrelevant in today's hyperpartisan atmosphere.

    He says if the social programs that are out there aren't sufficient, he will 'fix them'. The implication (?) is that he will do whatever it takes or costs to assure the poor are taken care thus alienating many on the right who claim the social programs are what's killing us.

    He says he is not concerned about the very rich thus alienating those in his party who say he is buying into the populist rhetoric of 'soak the rich' merely to advance his own candidacy.

    And finally, by claiming that 90%-95% of Americans are middle-class (if you read the full interview) and 'struggling' he brings into the conversation numbers that all sides can argue with.

    In one short interview, the man has been able to provide ammunition to his enemies on all sides.

    As I said, he's not ready for prime time.

  22. Contentions
    Romney and the “Very Poor”
    Bethany Mandel

    This morning on CNN, fresh off his win in Florida, Mitt Romney discussed where the focus of his campaign lies. He said,

    “I’m in this race because I care about Americans. I’m not concerned about the very poor, we have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich, they’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95% of Americans that are struggling.”

    Soledad O’Brien incredulously asked Romney to explain why he wasn’t concerned about the very poor and Romney repeated that they fall within a safety net that provides food stamps, housing subsidies and Medicaid.

    How big, exactly, is the safety net that the government provides? In a report last year, The Heritage Foundation explains:

    Means-tested programs are limited to those at or below the poverty line. However, many welfare benefits go beyond this threshold to include persons who have incomes below 200 percent the poverty level, or about $44,000 per year for a family of four. Close to one-third of the U.S. population falls within this income range. A family of four at this income level would be eligible for approximately $28,000 worth of federal and state welfare benefits per year.

    Compare this $28,000 to what the average middle class American receives from the government in comparable subsidies, $0. While he’s right that the government provides an enormous safety net for the poor (99.4% of whom own at least one television), the explanation he provides on welfare in this country leaves everyone to the left and right of his campaign on edge. To the left, it verifies the long held suspicion Republicans only care about people with money, callously disregarding the plight of the poor. This verification will be played over and over during a general election if Romney clinches the nomination. To the right, it verifies that Romney is as liberal as they fear, complacent with the welfare state as it currently stands.

    Romney stated a truth about the welfare state that too often goes unsaid. The problem is he’s now glorified a system Americans find either insufficient or too far-reaching.


    Ticked everyone off alright. Thing is, Obama has done so too.

    If you can't satisfy everybody you ought to at least satisfy somebody.

  36. At the beginning of the discussion Chief of the Security Police and of the SD, SS-Obergruppenfuehrer Heydrich, reported that the Reich Marshal had appointed him delegate for the preparations for the final solution of the Jewish question in Europe and pointed out that this discussion had been called for the purpose of clarifying fundamental questions. The wish of the Reich Marshal to have a draft sent to him concerning organizational, factual and material interests in relation to the final solution of the Jewish question in Europe makes necessary an initial common action of all central offices immediately concerned with these questions in order to bring their general activities into line.

    The Reichsfuhrer-SS and the Chief of the German Police (Chief of the Security Police and the SD) was entrusted with the official central handling of the final solution of the Jewish question without regard to geographic borders.

    The Chief of the Security Police and the SD then gave a short report of the struggle which has been carried on thus far against this enemy, the essential points being the following:

    a) the expulsion of the Jews from every sphere of life of the German people,

    b) the expulsion of the Jews from the living space of the German people.

    In carrying out these efforts, an increased and planned acceleration of the emigration of the Jews from Reich territory was started, as the only possible present solution.

    By order of the Reich Marshal, a Reich Central Office for Jewish Emigration was set up in January 1939 and the Chief of the Security Police and SD was entrusted with the management. Its most important tasks were

    a) to make all necessary arrangements for the preparation for an increased emigration of the Jews,

    b) to direct the flow of emigration,

    c) to speed the procedure of emigration in each individual case.

    The aim of all this was to cleanse German living space of Jews in a legal manner.

    All the offices realized the drawbacks of such enforced accelerated emigration. For the time being they had, however, tolerated it on account of the lack of other possible solutions of the problem.

    The work concerned with emigration was, later on, not only a German problem, but also a problem with which the authorities of the countries to which the flow of emigrants was being directed would have to deal. Financial difficulties, such as the demand by various foreign governments for increasing sums of money to be presented at the time of the landing, the lack of shipping space, increasing restriction of entry permits, or the cancelling of such, increased extraordinarily the difficulties of emigration. In spite of these difficulties, 537,000 Jews were sent out of the country between the takeover of power and the deadline of 31 October 1941. Of these

    approximately 360,000 were in Germany proper on 30 January 1933

    approximately 147,000 were in Austria (Ostmark) on 15 March 1939

    approximately 30,000 were in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia on 15 March 1939.

    Guantanamo recidivism rate climbs higher
    By THOMAS JOSCELYNSeptember 14, 2011

    During a joint hearing of the Senate and House intelligence committees yesterday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified that the recidivism rate for former Guantanamo detainees has risen to an estimated 27 percent. The total number of "confirmed" and "suspected" recidivists, according to Clapper, is now 161.

    The latest assessment is higher than the previous one offered by the DNI in December 2010. At the time, the DNI estimated that the recidivism rate was 25 percent, and included 150 "confirmed" and "suspected" recidivists.

    According to the DNI's December 2010 report, confirmed cases are those in which a "preponderance of information" identifies "a specific former GTMO detainee as directly involved in terrorist or insurgent activities." In suspected recidivism cases, "[p]lausible but unverified or single-source reporting" indicates "a specific former GTMO detainee is directly involved in terrorist or insurgent activities." Engaging in anti-US "statements or propaganda does not qualify as terrorist or insurgent activity" in either confirmed or suspected cases.

    The US government's estimate of the number of ex-Guantanamo detainees who have returned to jihad has steadily increased over time.

    In June 2008, the Defense Department reported that 37 former detainees were "confirmed or suspected" recidivists. On Jan. 13, 2009 -- seven months later -- Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said that number had climbed to 61. By May 2009, when a recidivism assessment was leaked to The New York Times (the report was based on information available as of mid-March 2009), the Defense Dept. had found that the same metric had risen further to 74 -- exactly double the Pentagon's estimate just 11 months before.

    The Obama administration confirmed in February 2010 that the recidivism rate was then 20 percent, meaning that more than 100 former Guantanamo detainees were either "confirmed" or "suspected" recidivists at the time. By December 2010, the number had climbed even higher -- to 150 former detainees. And now, that estimate has risen again -- to 161 ex-Guantanamo detainees.

    "Many of them have been taken off the battlefield through kinetic encounters," Clapper explained, with respect to the recidivists.

    One of these "kinetic encounters" occurred earlier this month, when Afghan and Coalition security forces killed a former Guantanamo detainee named Sabar Lal Melma and captured another ex-Guantanamo detainee during a raid in Afghanistan. [See LWJ report, Ex-Gitmo detainee killed in Afghanistan.]

  53. The economy is voters' top concern.

    "Look, drive around this town, see all the places that are vacant," said Tom Nay, a 68-year-old, self-employed Romney supporter in Las Vegas. "People are not working."

    The state's unemployment rate, 12.6 percent, is the nation's highest. Its largest casinos suffered a combined net loss of nearly $4 billion in 2011, the third straight year of losses. In all, more than 166,300 people were out of work and one in every 177 homes was in foreclosure in December, also the highest rate in the nation. Immigration and tourism are also top issues in the state.

  65. Barring the nomination of a Republican ticket of Ron Paul and Christine O’Donnell, anyone who says this election is in the bag is crazy. How could President Obama lose? Let us count the ways.

    1) The president could win the national popular vote but lose a majority in the Electoral College

    In 2000, for the first time since 1888, the winner of the national popular vote failed to carry the Electoral College. Al Gore won New York, Massachusetts, D.C., and California by a total of over four million votes.

    ...

    2) The Nixon-Reagan-Bush coalition could re-assert itself

    From 1968 to 2004, Republicans put together a coalition of the South, the West, suburbia, and the Farm Belt, winning seven of ten national elections — and control of the U.S. Senate for nearly half those years. That GOP coalition lost in 2006 and 2008, but heartland America and suburbia boomed big for Republicans in 2010.

    ...

    3) The president could get personally blamed

    With over two-thirds of Americans unhappy with the condition of the country, we can never be sure that a massive “throw-the-bums-out” mood won’t be directed at the man at the top. That certainly happened to Herbert Hoover in 1932, Jimmy Carter in 1980, and the first President Bush in 1992.

  67. In fairness, second place in a Republican primary has often been a ticket to a future nomination. But what happened for George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, McCain and now perhaps Romney is unlikely to happen for the rest of this cast of characters.

    ...

    If Romney loses to Barack Obama, the Republican Party is not going to nominate Rick Santorum in 2016 when it could nominate Chris Christie or Jeb Bush. Nor will it reconsider Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry when it could fall in love with Marco Rubio or Bobby Jindal.

    In the end, there’s only one potential second-placer in this field who can plausibly claim to be making a down payment on the future. And that future’s name is Rand Paul.

    Surprisingly, your age arrived around 10,000 years ago and ended about 3,000 years ago. But thanks for the corn and rhubarb.

    And this is exactly the kind of problem addressed by the Neolithic Conservative Party. Our original incorporating documents contain a list of barnyard animals and fowl needed for each family, cattle highlighted prominently among them.

    Tired of hunting? Go barnyard cattle. Tired of digging camus bulbs with a stick? Begin by going subsistence farming.

  77. The truth is in the details.

    I'm concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who are struggling."

    But Romney's tax plan could raise taxes for lower-income families and would give big tax cuts to millionaires.

    Obama's campaign seized on the part about not needing to do any more to help the poor, using it to portray Romney as insensitive to the poor.

  78. Romney continues to spread the big lie that he is for the middle class.

    Romney said. "And there's no question it's not good being poor, and we have a safety net to help those that are very poor. But my campaign is focused on middle Americans."

    Romney will be focusing upon raising taxes on the middle class and lowering the taxes for the millionaire class he is part of.

    What really surprises me is that you have to ask Dale. What are you merely the party front man?

    Now we learn Dale is the man, the decision-maker, the main honcho, El Jeffe, the dark, sinister power behind the throne.

    More and more the NCP sounds like today's other parties, political hacks trolling for your dollars with a secret agenda cooked up in some shady smokefilled room in the depths of Idaho.

    What is it? Are you in league with the vegans? Are you toadies of the ethanol cabal? Strictly in it for the money, the power, perks, and prestige? What other sordid aims drive you?

    Fie on you and the NCP.

    Grow your own food. A cow in every yard. A chicken in every pot. The message of the NCP.

    What pap.

    Once you start connecting the dots it all becomes so obvious.

    A good natured front man selling the party line to a credulous public like Robert Wagner selling reverse mortgages to the elderly while Dale a dark, sinister presence who most people know little about sits in a smoke filled room pulling the strings.

    A party platform designed to confuse, contradictory and obfuscated . Condemn OWS and its goals on the one hand while at the same time pushing an anti-capatalistic “Go Green’ message. What Emersonian drivel. I get my corn packed in a can by a big jolly green guy over in the Valley like every other red-blooded, ‘real-American’.

    I thought we got rid of groups like this NCP cell back in the 50's but their kind never goes away. Still trying to weedle their way into the very fiber of the American spirit to spread their venomous philosophy.

    Fie and for shame.

    The man is either very confident or as politically tone-deaf as his GOP counterparts. Pushing his liberal views is one thing but the timing is questionable. It is only ten months to the election.

    However, there is some consistancy. The first year he was in office, he pushed Obamacare to the exclusion of everything else while at the same time the American people had been expecting him to concentrate on the economic crisis and jobs.
