McCain gave money to Khalidi? The truth behind the meme

Yesterday, readers of our blog were witness to the birth of viral meme.

An 0bama troll dropped by our post on the LA Times video suppression, and informed us that the Obama-Khalidi association really wasn’t any big deal. Otherwise, why would John McCain have given over $400,000 to a Palestinian group that Khalidi worked with?

I googled his cut-and-paste comment and discovered that the exact same phrase had been already been posted to the internet over 500 times.

That same verbatim phrase now has been posted over 18,000 times!

Obviously the O-bots think it’s working.

The problem is, it is only a distraction, designed to produce an illusion.

Aaron Klein, writing at WND, shines the light of truth on the 0bama cover story.

It’s true that McCain distributed several grants, including one worth about half a million dollars, to the Center for Palestine Research and Studies, or CPRS, a West Bank organization associated with Khalidi.

What the 0-bots fail to mention is that CPRS is pro-Western and can be characterized as pro-Israel.

Its work has been condemned by the Palestinian leadership and by local terror groups as “Zionist propaganda.”

In contrast, the Khalidi organization Obama helped fund as a board member for a nonprofit, alongside domestic terrorist William Ayers, has taken a flagrantly anti-Israel line. Khalidi’s Arab American Action Network has hosted scores of Israel-bashing events, including at least one reportedly attended by Obama.

The Obama-Khalidi connection is one more straw. Is it the one that finally breaks the donkey’s back?

Free The Tape!!!

If this were John McCain’s aunt

Just wondering …  if this were John McCain’s or Sarah Palin’s aunt, do you think we would be reading about it in a British newspaper, only days before the election?

Somehow, I get the feeling that MSNBC snd CNN would have run weeks worth of in depth interviews.  But, since it really doesn’t reflect well on Obama, it just gets ignored.

Who’da thunk it? /s

AIG has 8 weeks of cash left

At the rate troubled insurance giant AIG is bleeding cash, there are only about 8 weeks left before the well runs dry, according to Mark Tucker, CEO of Prudential PLC.

The difficult situation is exacerbated by the general turmoil in the financial markets as willing bidders for AIG assets are waiting on the sideline.

And what about the original $85 billion bailout fund?

“AIG is using the funds primarily for collateral obligations for the credit default swap portfolio and general corporate funding.” The additional $37.8 billion facility is being used by the securities lending program that AIG operates as part of fulfilling the normal cash needs of the life insurance companies.

As the credit markets are trying to free up liquidity, the fear of a general worldwide recession is growing and adding to the downward pressure on the world’s stock markets. This is hurting AIG by reducing values of collateral that AIG is shoring up with Fed cash. At the same time, the value of investment-grade bonds is dropping, reducing the ability of AIG to raise cash, even from the Fed. This is putting severe pressure on AIG’s ability to operate freely. …

AIG’s Joe Norton would not disclose the date that AIG will release the 3rd Quarter earnings report. If AIG announces that the results will be published on Nov. 4 or 5, perhaps taking a leaf from the political handbook, it could be seen as a sign of extremely bad news that could be covered overlooked by the excitement of the presidential election.

Global de-leveraging continues unabated.

Get those winter gardens in.

Obama locks up key endorsements

On Sunday, Barack Obama scored the stunning endorsement of General Colin Powell, guaranteeing that he would receive over 90% of the black vote.

Tonight, another stunner….. former WH Press Secretary Scott McClellan has endorsed Obama, thus guaranteeing that Obama effectively locks up 90+% of the ass-wipe vote.

Vimto: Secret Agent Reveals All…..Exclusive to NN&V.

Vimto, Welsh secret agent reporting back for duty.

I wonder if you have found the news blackout from the UK suspicious recently? Truth to tell we are now under Sharia Law and I am risking my life smuggling this article to you.

Since that guy in Denver died I haven’t been safe. There seems to be a plot (so I’m told – emailed to me – honest guv) that the 3 guys that went to shoot Obama were recruited by this Somalian guy but double crossed him. Still can’t work out why they left the cyanide…. deeply mysterious.

In the UK we are bending over backwards (as it were) to please our new Islamic masters. As good Dhimmi’s were are not just letting Muslims celebrate Ramadan but want to join with them in fraternal solidarity.

I have to be brief – there is someone at the door – from now on please refer to me as Usaf vimto. Got to go…. I may be some time…..

McCain, Obama react to Georgia-Russia conflict

Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama gave their opinions today on the current conflict between Russia and Georgia, both expressing their hopes for a cease-fire and a negotiated settlement.

McCain … believes NATO’s North Atlantic Council should convene an emergency session to demand a cease-fire, and begin talking about a peacekeeping force for South Ossetia.

Obama thinks the U.N. Security Council should pass a resolution calling for an immediate end to the violence. He also thinks a U.N. mediator should join efforts to try to end the fighting. source

I suppose someone forgot to tell Mr. Obama that Russia is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, with full veto power over any resolution.

He must be exhausted, lugging around that giant brain all the time.

Official Obama Gesture of Veneration

Whenever Obama appears, his followers are going to make big ol’ zeroes with their hands in a gesture of supplication and surrender. I encourage them in this endeavor. I suspect that we will be better off if his followers’ hands are in the air where we can keep an eye on them.

I’m not so sure that the “please don’t hurt me, I give up!” gesture will help if they come up against PUMA at the Democratic Convention. I believe PUMA’s gesture of support for Hillary includes a baseball bat and an Obama delegate.

Update: Perhaps they’re all just really, really big (well, you know).
