Wisconsin Burning

If you follow current events, the John Doe investigations in Wisconsin may ring a familiar note, and likely it is something that you are familiar with by name and vague generalities only.  I was aware that that Governor Scott Walker had been investigated for campaign illegalities and had been exonerated, and that the investigation was given the name “John Doe” because the names of possible co-conspirators were unknown.

democratic-party-wisconsinBut, reading David French’s excellent reporting at National Review left me completely stunned.  And now, I am left with a feeling of anger and disillusion, as well as an uncomfortable sense of familiarity with times and events long ago.  French describes this activity by the Democrat Party as “lawfare.”

a process whereby rogue regimes or organizations abuse legal doctrines and processes to accomplish through sheer harassment and attrition what can’t be accomplished through legitimate diplomatic means.

It is hardly a new concept.  The very same Democrat Party used these tactics over 50 years ago in my home state of Mississippi.  The primary enforcers of Party doctrine in those days was the Ku Klux Klan.  The victims were Black Americans who wanted nothing more than to exercise their First Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process and vote.  In turn, they were subjected to harassment, intimidation, and much, much worse.  It didn’t end with a kumbaya moment of clarity on the part of the Democrats-In-Charge.  No, it ended with the exposure of the criminal activity, arousal of public opinion, and by the direct intervention of the FBI.

In Wisconsin, the victims were Tea Party conservatives who wanted nothing more than to exercise their first Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process.  In turn, they were harassed, intimidated, and threatened with jail if they even spoke about the investigation.  Personal property was illegally seized.  Raids on conservative families were conducted by local Police in the dead of night.  The enforcer of Party doctrine was the Wisconsin Judiciary, who rubber-stamped every subpoena and warrant requested by a Democrat District Attorney in this modern day witch hunt.

Until this moment, there has been no exposure of the criminal partisan activity in Wisconsin.  There has been no opportunity to arouse public opinion.  The secrecy surrounding the John Doe Investigations has been all-encompassing, allowing for only the barest of details to emerge – selectively leaked by the DA.  Appeals are currently pending in both the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and the US Supreme Court.  The Department of Justice is absent, complicit by its silence.  No intervention by the FBI is forthcoming.

Now, we are awake.  And we are watching.

BATFE To Ban Common AR-15 Ammo

I’m copying/pasting this entire piece from the NRA ILA:

Gun Control isn’t about guns.  It’s about control!

In a move clearly intended by the Obama Administration to suppress the acquisition, ownership and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unexpectedly announced today that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” The decision continues Obama’s use of his executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.

It isn’t even the third week of February, and the BATFE has already taken three major executive actions on gun control. First, it was a major change to what activities constitute regulated “manufacturing” of firearms. Next, BATFE reversed a less than year old position on firing a shouldered “pistol.” Now, BATFE has released a “Framework for Determining Whether Certain Projectiles are ‘Primarily Intended for Sporting Purposes’ Within the Meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(c)”, which would eliminate M855’s exemption to the armor piercing ammunition prohibition and make future exemptions nearly impossible.

gun-controlBy way of background, federal law imposed in 1986 prohibits the manufacture, importation, and sale by licensed manufacturers or importers, but not possession, of “a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely . . . from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium.” Because there are handguns capable of firing M855, it “may be used in a handgun.” It does not, however, have a core made of the metals listed in the law; rather, it has a traditional lead core with a steel tip, and therefore should never have been considered “armor piercing.” Nonetheless, BATFE previously declared M855 to be “armor piercing ammunition,” but granted it an exemption as a projectile “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes.”

Now, however, BATFE says that it will henceforth grant the “sporting purposes” exception to only two categories of projectiles:

Category I: .22 Caliber Projectiles

A .22 caliber projectile that otherwise would be classified as armor piercing ammunition under 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(B) will be considered to be “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes” under section 921(a)(17)(C) if the projectile weighs 40 grains or less AND is loaded into a rimfire cartridge.

Category II: All Other Caliber Projectiles

Except as provided in Category I (.22 caliber rimfire), projectiles that otherwise would be classified as armor piercing ammunition will be presumed to be “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes” under section 921(a)(17)(C) if the projectile is loaded into a cartridge for which the only handgun that is readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade is a single shot handgun. ATF nevertheless retains the discretion to deny any application for a “sporting purposes” exemption if substantial evidence exists that the ammunition is not primarily intended for such purposes.

BATFE is accepting comments until March 16, 2015 on this indefensible attempt to disrupt ammunition for the most popular rifle in America. Check back early next week for a more in-depth analysis of this “framework” and details on how you can submit comments.

 

How to comment – from the BATFE

ATF will carefully consider all comments, as appropriate, received on or before March 16, 2015, and will give comments received after that date the same consideration if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration cannot be given except as to comments received on or before March 16, 2015. ATF will not acknowledge receipt of comments. Submit comments in any of three ways (but do not submit the same comments multiple times or by more than one method):

ATF email: APAComments@atf.gov

The Assault On Our Southern Border Wasn’t Spontaneous, It Was Planned

When I discovered how many ILLEGAL immigrants were flooding our border with Mexico and that they were primarily from Central American countries, I thought to myself…”now, wait a minute.”

My pause was directly attributed to my cynicism and my suspicions of the current criminal enterprise known as the Obama administration.

I just knew this entire fiasco was a classic example of the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Of course I couldn’t prove it, but one thing I learned from spending time on a farm was you didn’t need to see the dead rat in a barn to know there was a dead rat in the barn. The smell is confirmation enough.

Then my nose to the wind approach directed me to the blog Conservative Wife, where the author did some outstanding research and as her blog article indicates, our government initiated this mass invasion and was contracting for escorts/transport in late January.

I also encourage you all to forward this to others, and as she said, ‘MAKE THIS GO VIRAL.’

2010 story of the year

From the UK press …  truly a stunning article.

I don’t trust communists, and this article just reinforces that belief for me.

WTF are these chicom bastards up to?

 

Ghost Towns of China

 

Elaborate public buildings and open spaces are completely unused, with the exception of a few government vehicles near communist authority offices.

Some estimates put the number of empty homes at as many as 64 million, with up to 20 new cities being built every year in the country’s vast swathes of free land.

The photographs have emerged as a Chinese government think tank warns that the country’s real estate bubble is getting worse, with property prices in major cities overvalued by as much as 70 per cent.

Ghost city: Kangbashi was meant to be the urban centre for wealthy coal-mining community Ordos and home to its one million workers, but its roads are eerily empty and the houses stand vacant.

Ruck Fussia!

Other than a friend of mine buying an old Moisin-Nagant as a cheap plinking gun, or another friend that collects old Makarov semi-auto pistols, I can think of no other positive contribution to come from the Fussian Federation/USSR.

The hordes of hackers that Fussia produces certainly aren’t a positive, nor is the current government, which presents the facade of a nation based on democratic principles, but is in fact still as murderous, oppressive and tyrannical as it has been since 1917.

Even with the loss of many former USSR states, which the Fussian Federation wants to reclaim, Fussia has the largest land mass of any nation. It also has a disturbingly low birth replacement rate, low life expectancy for males, a crumbling infrastructure(especially the health care system), rising HIV/AIDS infection rates, hostile relations with its neighbors and a minimally effective economy which is almost entirely reliant on the price of oil.

Fussia, since the fall of the old USSR, and particularly since the rise of proud KGB/FSB agent Vladimir(pronounced Vlad-eemer) Putin, the hostility toward the west has resumed unabated. Weaker than it was most of the twentieth century, Fussia began arming our enemies(such as Iran/Syria/Venezuela) and supplying some of them with nuclear technology, all the while giving lip service to their friendship with the West and Israel.

In the most recent example of Fussia’s hostility to the West, we learn of the recent arrest of eleven ten spies from Fussia. These aren’t the type of spies one typically thinks of as they weren’t assigned diplomatic duties, these spies were “illegals” without diplomatic immunity and some of whom were even recognized by Fussian Foreign Ministry officials as Fussian citizens.

Somewhere in Arkansas

A village is missing an idiot.

Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), was asked the following question …
“What part of the Constitution do you think gives Congress the authority to mandate that individuals have to purchase health insurance?”

“Well, I just think the Constitution charges Congress with the health and well-being of the people,” Lincoln said.

CNSNews.com then asked the Senator: “So, what area though? You’re saying the health and well-being. What area, though, does that fall under?”

“The health and well-being of the people of the country,” she replied.

Of course. The old “health and well-being clause.” How could anyone have missed that?

Perhaps Mrs. Lincoln might be reminded of other words in the Constitution: The Oath of Office. In fact, the oath is required by the Constitution; the wording is prescribed by law.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Mrs. Lincoln, the words “health” and “well-being” do not appear anywhere in the Constitution.

You are a **#$% disgrace.

The Holder File

Two articles of interest in the ever-expanding collection of links that I call, “The Holder File:”

1) First, an excellent piece by NRO’s Andrew McCarthy, Eric Holder’s Hidden Agenda. A case of ‘hidden in plain view,’ methinks.

2) And second, from CNet,    Bill would give president emergency control of Internet.  Probably more appropriate to DHS than DOJ, but all thugs look alike to me.

While Cap’n Tax, ObamaCare, and record spending/record deficits grab the headlines and attention of the public, the DOJ continues to up the ante in the culture war…  Here’s a running list of linkage.

Øbama Is A Liar!

DrObama

While I believe the title to this post is true in general, the focus for now is his lying in order to complete a governmental power grab over our daily lives.

I will list and document a plethora of lies he has told recently, but not an all inclusive list. While a plethora is “superabundance,” it is by no means as extensive as his ability to prevaricate.

Here is a complete list of all the industries in the U.S., as of 14 Aug 09.
These industries are ranked by profitability, as indicated in the far right column labeled “net profit margin.” Scrolling down, you will find the Health Insurance Industry ranks #86 on this list. A simpler chart is present here.

According to president Øbama this past month:

“There have been reports just over the last couple of days of insurance companies making record profits, right now,” Obama said during a prime-time news conference. “At a time when everybody’s getting hammered, they’re making record profits, and premiums are going up. What’s the constraint on that? … Well, part of the way is to make sure that there’s some competition out there.”

Not only false, but an outright intentional lie disguised as a criticism of the “greedy” insurance companies.

Just a few days ago, Øbama was in Porstmouth, N.H., where, among other things, he claimed:

I have not said that I was a single-payer supporter … I believe it would be too disruptive.

Video.

Another blatant lie!
Here is what he said last June while campaigning for president.

I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.

Dress warmly comrade, and report to the Komissar

obama-shill-douglassThere is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

obamacareThought crime is a serious offense in Obama’s America.

Speaking truth to power is no longer necessary, since Obama is both the truth and the power. /s

Update: Senator John Cornyn weighs in ……

“I am not aware of any precedent for a President asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White House for pure political speech that is deemed ‘fishy’ or otherwise inimical to the White House’s political interests”

“You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection program. As Congress debates health care reform and other critical policy matters, citizen engagement must not be chilled by fear of government monitoring the exercise of free speech rights.”

Zelaya stole millions from central bank

from The Washington Times:

Honduran officials are investigating allegations that President Manuel Zelaya and his chief of staff stole millions of dollars from the central bank before the military ousted Mr. Zelaya last month, according to a senior Honduran official, government documents and other evidence.

A security video from the Central Bank of Honduras made available to The Washington Times shows officials entering the bank June 24 and withdrawing large amounts of Honduran currency. The money was driven to the office of Mr. Zelaya’s chief of staff, Enrique Flores Lanza, according to depositions by three witnesses to Honduran prosecutors.

Government documents and testimony by the three say that about $2.2 million was taken.

Perhaps this previously unreported video will provide President Obama with a face-saving way to reverse his support for Zelaya.

It is time for the United States Government to get on the side of the Honduran people in their attempt to restore democratic rule.

Zelaya makes Diebold blush, Noriega jealous

from Babalu blog:

A Catalan newspaper is reporting that Honduran authorities have seized computers found in the Presidential Palace belonging to deposed president Mel Zelaya. Taking a page right out of the leftist dictator’s handbook, these computers, according to the news report, contained the official and certified results of the illegal constitutional referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct that never took place. The results of this fraudulent vote was tilted heavily in Zelaya’s favor, ensuring he could go ahead and illegally change the constitution so he could remain in power for as long as he wanted to. ACORN, I’m sure, is taking notes.

This is the man that the OAS, the UN, and the Obama State Department want the Honduran people to reinstall as their leader.

The United States government is on record, and on the wrong side.

Obama must withdraw his support for Zelaya.  Failure to do so is willful negligence, and worse than Jimmy Carter’s disgraceful support for Robert Mugabe in 1979.

And now, yet another leftover from the Carter years, Danny Noriega,  is attempting the same end run around the Nicaraguan constitution.  Same playbook.  The usual cast of characters.

We need a man to stand up in the Democrat administration.  Hillary, where are you?

A Thank You Note To Honduras!

Dear Citizens of Honduras,
I wish to personally thank you for faithfully defending your nation’s constitution from a failed coup d’etat, by your now ousted President.
You have given all lovers of freedom and democratic principles, a shining example of how to recognize and defeat a determined enemy, and one who would become your dictator.

Good citizens of Honduras, you watched as ‘Mel’ ran a corrupt government, that hadn’t even submitted a fiscal budget for 2009, as demanded by your constitution. His attempts to bribe and confuse the mostly impoverished citizens did not go unnoticed, and you acted accordingly. In violation of your constitution, he attempted to hold an illegal referendum (which are prohibited within six months of a general election) in order to force the ‘cuarta urna’, or fourth ballot box, into the polling places for the November general election. This would have created a National Constituent Assembly, hand picked by Zelaya, which would have had the power to review and change the constitution, with the end result being ‘continuismo’ for Zelaya, just as his close associate Hugo Chavez has done.

People of Honduras, with your Attorney General, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), your military commanders, and the National Congress, you have demonstrated loyalty to the rule of law. As young as your constitution is, ratified in 1982, you have nurtured it despite the many hardships your citizens face in their daily lives.

I would also like to thank you for demonstrating, to those of us who will listen and pay attention, what a government and its citizens can and should do when its elected leaders behave unlawfully. You have given us hope that we could, when faced with a constitutional crisis, rise up and peacefully remove the president when his actions are repeatedly demonstrated as being unconstitutional.

Further thanks are extended for continuing to show support for your government’s actions in removing your president, despite the many world leaders opposition, as well as the ongoing propaganda being disseminated against you in the alleged main stream media. That CNN will cover your peaceful protests of thousands, in support of your governments actions, the only videos to be found are of the pro-Zelaya protests, small as they are.

While I don’t envy the uncertainty that you face right now, Honduras, you have given us all an excellent lesson in civics and hope, that with reasonable people, usurpers of authority and illegal acts will not be tolerated.
You have proven that there is change we can believe in.

With gratitude and respect,
a freedom loving American citizen.

Zelaya accused of drug ties – money laundering

from Frank Bajak, AP

BOGOTA – The regime that ousted Manuel Zelaya in Honduras claimed Tuesday that the deposed president allowed tons of cocaine to be flown into the Central American country on its way to the United States.

“Every night, three or four Venezuelan-registered planes land without the permission of appropriate authorities and bring thousands of pounds … and packages of money that are the fruit of drug trafficking,” its foreign minister, Enrique Ortez, told CNN en Espanol.

“We have proof of all of this. Neighboring governments have it. The DEA has it,” he added.

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Rusty Payne in Washington said he could neither confirm nor deny a DEA investigation.

toon063009Wannabe dictator-for-life Manuel Zelaya is a criminal thug.  No wonder Hugo, Daniel, Fidel, and Preznit Obama all love him.  They’re peas in the same pod.

Pensieve says, the real coup is being plotted as we speak.

right now, an emergency meeting of the entire ALBA is taking place in Nicaragua. This is Venezuelan Telesur’s highly biased article about it (Google translation). Chavez is there. I am sure they’ll try to overthrow the new government and establish a dictatorship. Chávez is bringing us to the brink of war!

This is playing exactly like how Chávez got into power in Venezuela in the first place. He was ousted for a few days…but made such a strong comeback, that he embarrassed the US and the world for backing his enemies.

ObamaCare:A Disaster That Can, And Must Be, Avoided!

I wish to state clearly, my position. Our current president has seldom been truthful about his various policies and programs, and in the case of health care, if he were Pinocchio, he would need safety lights on the tip of his nose, to warn aircraft, as his nose is so often tilted skyward.

I have been promising a gentleman I know, who is a client of one of my colleagues, to post on health care issues, particularly the looming street fight concerning Obama’s socialist plans for our health care system.

First an introduction to this gentleman, his name is John Goodman, and he is a member of the NCPA, has his own health care blog, is known as “The Father Of Health Savings Accounts,” cited as one of the three men who killed “HillaryCare” (along with William Kristol, and Sen. Phil Graham), has been a contributor to FOX News, and according to what he told me the other day, will become an adviser to FOX on the debate of ObamaCare. I strongly encourage readers of this post, to read and save his links for future reference. Mr. Goodman is a genuinely good man, and is tireless in his efforts, along with his charming wife.

With his bona fides established, his devotion to affordable, available, portable, and free-market based approaches to health care are clearly evident.

As it so happened, later in the same day, another colleagues client and I spent about thirty minutes talking. I can’t identify this gentleman, as he didn’t give express approval to cite him, but what he told me is on my word. This gentleman is in charge of a corporation that provides packaged health care insurance for major employers, so he definitely has skin in the game. After returning from Washington, he was quite disturbed by events, and that he had to spend millions of dollars on lobbyists, to fight ObamaCare, something he never thought he would do. We talked specifics, but at one point, I asked him if he had seen the Drudge Report, that ABC news had completely sold out to the White House, and after a stunned delay, he said no, and was totally dejected by the news.

I asked both of these gentlemen, if the AMA coming out against the “public option” was a little late, or would their turning against it add weight to the opposing forces in this debate. Mr. Goodman said the AMA had “sold out,” while the other gentleman said that the AMA, big business, and the pharmaceutical companies had all “sold out,” but not necessarily for the reasons most think. They have been threatened with loss of access to this, and future debates, if they oppose the president’s desire for socialized medicine. They will be put on Obama’s growing enemies list, and given no voice. Think Chicago styled political maneuvering. The second gentleman did say that many doctors have finally learned the details of the “public option,’ and that is they will be required to treat these policy holders…without compensation!

Many already know that, in those countries that have socialized medicine, with a focus on Canada and the UK, as Obama cites those two models as his guide, there are major shortages for service. Ask yourself, if you are a doctor, have friends or family who are, or even considered this field when in college, would you put in the required expense, time, and work, to become a physician/surgeon, only to not be able to make a good living, and have a bureaucrat determine which patients you could treat?
Exactly!

Here is some selected info from Mr. Goodman at NCPA:
WHERE DOES SINGLE-PAYER HEALTH CARE WORK?

* In Canada, the average wait for a 65-year-old man to get a hip replacement is six months, according to the Freedom Works Foundation.
* The average wait time in a Canadian emergency room is 16 hours and 18 minutes.
* Also, the average cancer test and radiation treatment cycles vary between 6 to 8 weeks, according to the foundation.

Meanwhile:

* In Great Britain, at any one time, there are about a million people waiting to get into hospitals, according to John C. Goodman, president, CEO and Kellye Wright Fellow of the National Center for Policy Analysis.
* Almost 900,000 Canadian patients are on the waiting list at any point in time, according to the Fraser Institute.
* In New Zealand, 90,000 people are on the waiting lists, according to government figures.

“Those people constitute only about 1 to 2 percent of the population in those countries, but keep in mind that only about 15 percent of the population actually enters a hospital each year,” says Goodman. “Many of the people waiting are waiting in pain. Many are risking their lives by waiting. And there is no market mechanism in these countries to get care to people who need it first.”

I’ll leave it to someone else to crunch the numbers, but if the percentages of those waiting for care remained constant, and are applied to the U.S., the number of people waiting for care would be truly horrifying.

For a little insight into what is happening in Canada, this video documentary, which is a little long, is as unsettling an indictment on the Canadian system, as any I’ve seen.

As for the price tag of the Big Lie Obama is attempting to foist on us, I am reminded of P.J. O’Rourke’s quote, “If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free.”
The claim is that it will only cost one trillion dollars, over a ten year period. Just hearing that, makes me suspend any desire to listen to what other lies they have planned for this debate.

According to the CBO:

According to our preliminary assessment, enacting the proposal would result in a net increase in federal budget deficits of about $1.0 trillion over the 2010-2019 period. When fully implemented, about 39 million individuals would obtain coverage through the new insurance exchanges. At the same time, the number of people who had coverage through an employer would decline by about 15 million (or roughly 10 percent), and coverage from other sources would fall by about 8 million, so the net decrease in the number of people uninsured would be about 16 million or 17 million.

That net decrease nestles up against the estimated 46 million to 47 million uninsured at the present date.

So, with this lie, a trillion dollars would cover approximately thirty percent of those who are now uninsured, but it would also flip some from covered to not. That may be change, but from my perspective, if it isn’t adaptive change, it is worthless.
This proposal is worthless.

As the lie about the one trillion dollars is still being bandied about, the truth of the matter is slowly entering the debate. Instead of one trillion dollars, try four trillion dollars, if the actual goal is to provide coverage to a much larger population, which I not only believe is the goal, but ultimately, that the government is in complete control of our health care system.

I will include some other linkage at the bottom of this post, if any are interested in what some others are saying, as this post is already long enough.

I wish to direct your attention, though, to a petition, recommended by Mr. Goodman, that got six thousand signatures after his Sunday appearance on FOX. They are wanting as many as possible, but at least one hundred thousand, at which time Mike Gallagher will hand deliver it to Washington.
FREE OUR HEALTH CARE NOW!!!!!
If you agree with the petition, and its purpose, I urge you to sign.

As for being a critic of the current policy canard being promoted by the president, I would be remiss in not mentioning there are alternatives. There is much discussion going on, much of it secretive, and there was one proposal that was made several years ago, but the democrats wouldn’t let it reach the floor.
It is called the Healthy Americans Act S. 334.
A brief summary of this now forgotten proposal:

It all starts with tax reform that empowers the individual. From that, we can get portability, individual access, incentives for healthy behavior, and market forces. The Healthy Americans Act embraces these principles; that health care coverage can be affordable, the uninsured can be covered, and, not insignificantly, our economy will be strengthened.

All of us need to get involved in this fight, as the unclear policy, being forced upon us by a power mad president, will destroy our health care system, if not forever, at least for decades. Write any and all of your elected officials, let us bombard Congress with emails and phone calls.
While I haven’t checked prices for good quality pitch forks at the local hardware store, that thought has entered my mind.

Daniel Ortega endorses Senator Gravitas

from AP…

MANAGUA, Nicaragua: President Daniel Ortega, who led the 1979 revolution in Nicaragua, says Barack Obama’s presidential bid is a “revolutionary” phenomenon in the United States.

“It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. … but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change,” the Sandinista leader said Wednesday night as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university.

Ortega led a Soviet-backed government that battled U.S.-supported Contra rebels before he lost power in a 1990 election. He returned to office last year via the ballot box.

In statements broadcast on Sandinista Radio La Primerisima, Ortega said he has “faith in God and in the North American people, and above all in the youth, that the moment of great change in the U.S. will come and it will act differently, with justice and equality toward all nations.”

Wonderful. Just wonderful. Is this the “change” that Senator Gravitas wants to bring?

US arrests 4 Chi-com spies

From BBC… File this under “Never Trust A Communist”

Four people have been arrested in the United States for allegedly passing secret defence information to China.

A 72-year-old former Boeing engineer is accused of giving China details about the space shuttle and other aerospace programmes.

In a separate case, two men and a woman are accused of handing over US defence department documents about Taiwan…

Chinese-born Dongfan “Greg” Chung, 72, of California, faces charges including eight counts of economic espionage, conspiracy, and making false statements to FBI investigators.

The US justice department said Mr Chung, a naturalised US citizen, worked in the aerospace industry for about 30 years – mostly at Rockwell International and Boeing on the space shuttle programme.

It added that he retired in 2002 but was working for Boeing as a contractor until 2006.

The charges claim he took Boeing trade secrets relating to the space shuttle, the C-17 military transport aircraft and the Delta IV rocket for the benefit of China.

He is also said to have sent China 24 secret manuals relating to the B-1 Bomber.

…If convicted, Mr Chung faces about 100 years in prison.In a separate case, a defence department employee and two others are accused of passing US government documents and information to China. The three suspects are Tai Shen Kuo, 58; Yu Xin Kang, 33; and Gregg William Bergersen, 51.

Mr Bergersen, a weapons systems policy analyst for an agency within the defence department, was charged with conspiracy to disclose national defence information “to persons not entitled to receive it”.

Tai Shen Kuo and Yu Xin Kang are charged “with conspiracy to disclose national defence information to a foreign government”.

Mr Kuo has Taiwanese and US passports and is alleged to have cultivated a relationship with Mr Bergersen to get information including details of potential sales of US military goods to Taiwan, according to court documents.

Ms Kang, a Chinese national living in the US, ferried information between Mr Kuo and Chinese officials, prosecutors said.

Mr Kuo and Ms Kang each face up to life in prison if convicted. Mr Bergersen faces up to 10 years in prison.

Who didn’t see this coming?

Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, has boasted of providing for universal healthcare in the Commonwealth.  In fact, Hillary Clinton’s reincarnation of universal healthcare was unveiled a few months ago, and it looked remarkably similar.  Employers are required to provide access to insurance, or face fines from the state.

Enter the law of unintended consequences.  Many employers have decided that paying the fines is better for their company than providing insurance.

I’m shocked.  Shocked, I tell ya.

Businesses with 11 or more full-time equivalent workers are now required to offer insurance or pay a fine. The law also bars employers from offering higher-wage workers better health benefits than low-wage employees. In addition, workers with access to employer-subsidized insurance are now barred from getting state-supported coverage, and will be excluded from the state’s free care program starting in April.

The provisions were designed to ensure that as many workers as possible get coverage through their employers in a state where about 70 percent of the 200,000 businesses offer insurance benefits.

For years, Doug Barlow and his business partner had paid 100 percent of the insurance cost for 11 full-time salaried workers at their three Burger King restaurants in Boston. The new law’s antidiscrimination provisions led them to offer insurance to 27 hourly employees. But the potential cost – nearly $1,100 per month for family coverage – pushed them to cut the firm’s contribution to 50 percent.

“I was prepared for a lot more people coming into our plan, but it didn’t happen,” said Barlow. Other employers said they are seeing the same pattern – expanded eligibility that does not lead to many more insured individuals.

“For most working-class people, regardless of whether the company pays part of the premium, it’s very expensive,” Barlow said. “Some full-time people said they’d done the math and it is cheaper for them to pay the state penalty than pay their half of health insurance.”

The law requires individuals to obtain insurance by Dec. 31, if the state deems it affordable, or pay a penalty of $219. Next year, the penalty will rise.

As they say, read it all.

What do you think, Club for Growth?  Socialized medicine has no place in a capitalist society.  Get your heads out of your azzes and quit supporting this moron.

Winter Soldier Syndrome

Continuing on yesterday’s theme, Michelle Malkin weighs in…….

CNSNews.com Commentary
August 08, 2007

Michelle MalkinThe tale of Army Private Scott Thomas Beauchamp, the discredited “Baghdad Diarist” for the discredited New Republic magazine, is an old tale: Self-aggrandizing soldier recounts war atrocities. Media outlets disseminate soldier’s tales uncritically. Military folks smell a rat and poke holes in tales too good (or rather, bad) to be true. Soldier’s ideological sponsors blame the messengers for exposing anti-war fraud.

Beauchamp belongs in the same ward as John F. Kerry, the original infectious agent of the toxic American disease known as Winter Soldier Syndrome. The ward is filling up.   {snip}

The doubters of Scott Thomas know atrocities when they see them. But, unlike the TNR editors, they know steaming bull dung when they smell it.Ever since John Kerry sat in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and accused American soldiers of wantonly razing villages “in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan,” the Left has embraced a small cadre of self-loathing soldiers and soldier wannabes willing to sell their deadened souls for the anti-war cause. Think Jimmy Massey, the unhinged Marine who falsely accused his unit of engaging in mass genocide against Iraqis. Think Jesse MacBeth and Micah Wright, anti-war Army Rangers who weren’t Army Rangers.

Winter Soldier Syndrome will only be cured when the costs of slandering the troops outweigh the benefits. Exposing Scott Thomas Beauchamp and his brethren matters because the truth matters. The honor of the military matters. The credibility of the media matters. Think it doesn’t make a difference? Imagine where Sen. John Kerry would be now if the Internet had been around in 1971.
