little girls as sex objects. and moms encourage it? SICK!  a new low.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2112156/Dance-Moms-hits-new-low-Girls-young-EIGHT-wear-nude-bikinis-burlesque-routines.html

That link above well illustrates how depraved and sick the world, or their world anyway, has become.  I won’t post any of the photos here.

What the hell is going on with the moms?

Some people automatically accept men are supposed to be these sexually perverted beings that live under rocks.  There are many who fit that description.
But someone has to feed the perverts and I naively am shocked every time I see evidence that the enablers are actually women, mothers who think it’s perfectly normal and perfectly okay to turn an 8 year old into a would be sex object.  It’s wrong just plain wrong and frankly I think it should be made illegal.
We’re talking about wee kiddies here and even at the age of 10 they are still too damn young.  But what kind of message are the kids getting as they grow up?
This can not be okay.

I’m not sure but I think it comes from the USA. Hope not but I think it does.

Iron Bound Contract Rusted Through Already?

Air Farce Cancels Super Tacano Contract

image

What, did you think the boys in blue were actually going to buy planes with a spinner in front? And keep them??? Oh hella no. And at ONLY $17.75 million a pop, for a pimped out Cessna.

Citing concerns with the procurement process, the U.S. Air Force has canceled Sierra Nevada Corp.’s (SNC) $355 million contract to supply 20 Embraer AT-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft for operation by the Afghan air force.

The decision to set aside the contract is a victory for Hawker Beechcraft (HBC), which took the Air Force to court after its offer of the AT-6 aircraft was disqualified, leaving SNC as the only bidder for the Light Air Support (LAS) program.

“While we pursue perfection, we sometimes fall short, and when we do we will take corrective action,” says Air Force Secretary Michael Donley in a statement. Citing the ongoing litigation, he adds, “I can only say Air Force Senior Acquisition Executive David Van Buren is not satisfied with the quality of the documentation supporting the award decision.”

The contract was only awarded on December 31, after rival Hawker Beechcraft was eliminated from the competition because their airplane was still on the damn drawing board and the sky jockeys needed the COIN planes right away.

Well, the Air Force just scrapped the $355 million contract it gave Embraer and Sierra Nevada Corporation for 20 Super Tucano light attack turboprops on Dec. 31.

Remember, the Brazilian Super T beat out Hawker Beechcraft’s AT-6 Texan in the light attack contest aimed at providing a counterinsurgency aircraft for the tiny Afghan air force.

Apparently, someone got something pretty wrong in the “documentation” for the deal. So wrong that the Air Force has contacted the Department of Justice about the matter. Uh oh.



So, go figure. And make up your own mind as to the real reason this project got canned ...

A) Now that Obama has lost the war in Afghanistan with an apology, and our troops are totally in the shitter from the local lunatics uprising over their stupid book (which I have heard were burned “by accident” by some Afghani soldiers or contractors who volunteered for the task, and then put the word out. Gee, thanks. Such allies. They turned on us in the very beginning of that war, when our troops were half a mile away from bin Laden, and they turned on us again with the burning, and then after it when they assassinated those two high ranking officers right inside the command post. Guess we just don’t learn, ever.), it doesn’t look like we’ll be giving Karzai his own little air force after all. Because that’s the real truth: these planes never were for our guys. We were going to drop nearly half a billion giving them away to a group of cavemen who haven’t even figured out how to shoe horses yet. Or camels. Whatever. And then load the planes down with tons of our own very latest high tech avionics and insurgent detection gear, and then cross our fingers and our toes and click our ruby slippers and hope the planes didn’t accidentally get stolen or have “emergency landings” across the border into Pakistan where the frickin’ Red Chinese would be all over them like ... white on rice ... just like they did to that stealth chopper left behind after knocking off bin Laden.

B) Guess the bribe wasn’t big enough. Your choice who was getting that bribe; some fat armchair general about to retire, or the DNC. Oooh, “problems with the paperwork”. Yeah, that probably means the suitcase full of bills wasn’t heavy enough.

C) Guess the bribe WAS big enough, and Hawker Beechcraft has bought themselves some more politicians who are twisting arms. It’s not like this hasn’t happened before; look up Boeing and the mess over that aerial tanker replacement plan.

You may choose any combination of the above. Any or all of them are probably true.

The Land of Tinfoil

I got caught up in one of Rodger’s stories yesterday, the one about the $6 trillion in “fake” bearer bonds being seized by the Italian police ...

Italian prosecutors say they have broken up an organised crime ring that was hiding trillions of dollars of fake US bonds.

The bonds, with a face value of $6tn, were found in three metal boxes in a warehouse in the Swiss city of Zurich.

Italian authorities have arrested eight people and are investigating them for fraud and other crimes.

Prosecutors are not sure what the gang was planning, but think they intended to sell the counterfeit bonds.

Investigators, based in Potenza in southern Italy, say the fraud posed “severe threats” to international financial security.

The notes, which were dated 1934, were found in three safety deposit boxes in Zurich after a year-long joint investigation by Swiss and Italian authorities known as “Operation Vulcanica”. Eight people have been arrested.
...
The eight people under arrest are accused of counterfeiting bonds, as well as credit card forgery and usury across several Italian regions, including Lombardy in the north of the country.

Prosecutors refused to say anything more. But the Italian news agency ANSA, citing unidentified investigative sources, said phone taps indicated that there had been some interest from the suspects in acquiring plutonium from unidentified Nigerians.

Six trillion dollars? Plutonium from Nigeria? Gold bearer bonds from 1934? Nor is this the only recent bond bust. $20 billion in similar bonds were recently captured in Milan, and another $134 billion was grabbed in 2009, another huge stash in 2007, ...

An unusual and intriguing part of the story is that the bonds seem to have been found in old metal boxes marked “Chicago Federal Reserve System” “Mother Box” “Treaty of Versailles”. Ain’t that the damnedest thing?

image

I wanted to know more, so after I followed his links I Googled up the story ... and instantly found as many pages claiming that these were real as I found news stories saying that they were false. I decided to look closer, took the first step, ... and fell down the rabbit hole into the magical world of tinfoil hat land.

Horry Clappo! The more I looked, the wilder it got. Could there be any truth here? Could this story be a peak into the hidden powers behind the thrones, some machination of the One World Order? And I kept digging and digging and reading until I thought my head was going to explode. Let’s see if I can sum it all up in a short paragraph or two. So suspend your disbelief, set your Gullibility Meter to 11, and clap your hands harder than you ever clapped for Tinkerbell to live, that you believe that our Secret Masters are real.

*******
There is far more gold in the world than The Powers That Be want you to know about. If you Google up that question, you get an answer that there is X million tons of the stuff, enough to make one solid brick about the size of a house. Wrong! Try 100 times that much, perhaps 1000. 100,000. (this is entirely possible, because no person or nation is willing to say “We’ve got this much, come look!") International trade has existed since caveman days. We know this is true; rare archaeological oddities have turned up many times that show it may even have been trans-Atlantic. The trade routes to the Far East have existed longer than recorded history. The Silk Road starts in China and Japan, but in far antiquity the western ends went to Imperial Rome, Pharaoh’s doorstep, and perhaps the Meso-American civilizations around the Gulf of Mexico. All those trade goods going west for thousands of years, but going east, the payment has always been gold. Just gold. Read your Bible. Read your history. There was a LOT of gold kicking around back then. Taels worth. Lakhs worth. Millions of Fingers worth; the stories are so old that the units of measurement are almost lost to history. And over time, vast hordes of it wound up in China, where it just sat, forever. Ok, some massive amounts accumulated in India too, and to this day unbelievable hordes come to light once in a great while, worth billions.

While Europe was involved in a state of perpetual war for 3 or 4 thousand years, while dynasties came and went in India with all the killing, looting, and burning, while the ahistoric civilizations in Africa rose and fell, nobody ever fully conquered China. Oh sure, the Mongols. The Horde. But while they may have won the wars, they didn’t take the spoils and leave. No, they settled in, and stayed in China. Along with all that gold.

Fast forward through history to the 1930s. A weakened China, steeped in its own civil war, is invaded by Imperial Japan. (if you include all the players, which is only fair, World War II started long before old Adolph visited Poland. Japan invaded China in 1931, and Italy invaded Ethiopia in 1935. The Spanish Civil War 1936-39 is seen as a training program for the Nazi war machine, but is otherwise separate from the later global conflict.) Ok, Japan is kicking Moo Shu Pork Butt in China, and it looks like they might win. Time to move the gold. Where to send it? Fort Knox. Or the Old Sun Life Building. Which they did. 3, 4, or 7 battleships full. Or destroyers full, depending on which version of the story you read. A bunch of big ships, full of gold. China, or at least the Koumintang Party which was nominally in charge, was our ally back then. Remember the Flying Tigers and the movie Sand Pebbles?

Nations moving their bullion to some other safe country isn’t conjecture. This was done in WWI, and done again in WWII. Heck, if you’re over 45 you probably read Snow Treasure as a kid where the children snuck the gold past the Nazis on sleds. Smuggling is older than time too.

So the USA, still fat with Europe’s bullion from WWI (thanks Peiper, I’m rereading The Lords of Finance again, and I’m at the point the Dawes Plan is going into effect.) starts getting gold sent to it for safekeeping from all corners of the globe, and part of that is a horde beyond description from China. The gold of the world, all in the USA. And what did China get for this, as proof of their deposit? Bonds. Really huge bonds, with denominations in the millions and billions. Gold bonds. Sealed in metal Treasury Department boxes, with an agreement that they wouldn’t be opened for 30-60 years. Boxes and bonds just like the ones that came to light in this news story. At the time China didn’t have much in the way of official government, being in another one of their warlord periods. Most of the gold was in private hands, so these bonds were issued to people, not to the nation. Those people, the very small group of massively wealthy Chinese, would later be known by the group name called the Dragon Family.

This “fake bonds” story is just the latest chapter in the “China’s Black Gold” legend, which has been floating around for some time now. Add to the gold sent to us the gold stolen from China by Imperial Japan, which the US seized at the end of the war. Now put in the twist that, under FDR - perhaps the dirtiest dealing politician that ever was - the USA had no intention of ever giving any of it back. That they played the Chinese and issued real bonds in real boxes, but made them both with deliberate errors so that they would be dismissed as fakes when anyone tried to redeem them a generation or two later on. And that’s exactly what we have here in this news story. We ripped off China for dozens of trillions, the real bonds were declared fraudulent in court a few years ago, and the Dragon Family has been trying to flog them anywhere in the world ever since.

The problem is that what Romney, Trump and other China trade policy critics miss is that the trade deficit is not a result of a poorly thought out U.S. trade policy. In fact the U.S. trade policy with China has been meticulously thought out. There is growing evidence that it is payback for the CIA’s decades long covert use of China’s “black gold” - gold that does not appear on any international gold registry. China’s “black gold” has been hidden for over six decades in order to fund a globally coordinated set of covert projects hidden from public view by the CIA and a consortium of national intelligence organizations and transnational corporations - a Global Manhattan Project.

Two very recent court cases and a June 2009 incident on the Italian/Swiss border involving high denomination 1934 Federal Reserve notes reveal a remarkable historical fact. During the Second World War era, vast quantities of Chinese gold reserves were either looted and hidden by the Japanese Imperial Army in the Philippines, or transferred by the Chinese Nationalist government to international safe havens.

The biggest beneficiary of this vast historical movement of “black” gold was the U.S. government which arranged for a significant portion of China’s “black” gold to be transferred into the US. Federal Reserve system, and Federal Reserve bonds and/or notes issued in return. The holders of these high denomination Federal Reserve bearer bonds/notes - often the descendents of Chinese/Asian royal families - could only redeem these bonds after lengthy periods of time, e.g., five decades. As a safeguard to ensure the “black gold” would not become publicly tradable, the Federal notes/bonds were printed with spelling errors and other abnormalities that would make them appear fraudulent. Attempts to redeem these bearer bonds have been unsuccessful.

This has led to court cases and financial incidents that have drawn media attention over the high denomination bonds in dispute and their validity. Most public media attention wrongly concludes that these bonds are fraudulent as outlined in a recent Bloomberg article focusing on bonds found in the Philippines.
Two recent court cases citing meticulous fact checking and documentation of these high denomination 1934 bonds, suggest otherwise.

To calculate the total amount of gold ‘leased’ by China’s nationalist government to the Federal Reserve we can use the 1938 historic figure for the price of gold which was $34.87 per troy oz. $124.5 billion converts into an approximate total of 3.6 billion troy oz or 110 thousand metric tons. Given that the world’s total gold reserves is officially only 165 thousand tons, this is a staggering amount of gold that was secretly leased from China’s nationalist government.

Using the current spot price of gold, nearly $1700 per troy oz, the value of Chinese gold in possession of the Federal Reserve has a price of six trillion dollars!

Six trillion dollars. The very same amount in the news story from Italy. The above quote is from a web page that was written before the bonds were seized. Spooky!!

Purposeful mistake: a 52 star American flag embossed

on one of the Mother Boxes from 1934. Proof it’s a fake!!


So where is all the gold? Nobody knows. Rumor is that the court case referred to above was decided in America’s favor September 10, 2001. And that the gold had been stored in massive vaults deep underneath World Trade Center Building 7. But when the workers dug down through all the rubble, those vaults were found to be empty.

Actually, somebody does now. The secret cabal that runs the world - bankers and evil Joooos of course, of which the United States is their wholly owned corporation (well, them and the British Empire) - control the courts so they knew ahead of time how the decision would come down, and what would happen - 9/11 - because of it, so they spirited the gold out ahead of time. I’m only touching the tip of the iceberg here. The full story is long and convoluted and I haven’t read it all. I’m sure the Knights Templar and the Illuminati of Bavaria come into it somewhere. Certainly the Rothschilds do, and JP Morgan, and the Nazis. Even Saddam Hussein has a part: do you remember how US soldiers found/captured trucks full of gold bars in Iraq in the early days of Gulf War 2? It happened; Google it. Whatever became of that gold? Whatever became of that mountain full of Nazi gold the US Army found at the end of WWII? It’s all connected, in a story that spans the globe and nearly all of human history. And all hidden from sight and actively denied. Just like the Bilderberg Group and their Nazi roots. Just like these bonds. Down the rabbit hole.

Into the land of tinfoil.

Of course it’s fake! Right??

I Hate Being Patronized

The Fast and Furious story broke early last summer. It’s now nearly Valentine’s Day, and the news story, among the networks who even consider this news, is that a former agent says more government agencies were involved than LLPO Eric Holder admits to (LLPO = Liar Liar Pants On Fire). Well, no kidding. Tell us what we don’t know, m’kay?


Former DEA Chief: 3 Other Agencies Aware of Fast & Furious

While criticism surrounding Operation Fast and Furious has so far focused on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, three other federal agencies knew about the operation and some of their agents tried to stop it, according to the former chief of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in Tucson.

Tony Coulson, the DEA’s agent in charge of Southern Arizona during Fast and Furious, says many federal field agents knew the ATF was walking guns to Mexico, but supervisors told them to back off when they objected.

Coulson’s remarks jibe with what is already known about the operation. The DEA, the FBI and ICE, also known as Immigration Customs and Enforcement, all played roles in the investigation.

Coulson said those agencies share the blame since top officials knew, but did little to stop, the gunrunning effort. Coulson is among the first senior public officials, current or former, who admit knowing about the botched operation.

This is really annoying. And patronizing. Because anybody who can think and who realizes what a Velcroed clusterfuck of buck passing ass coverers the federal government is, can immediately see that this “revelation” is still not even half true. FBI, DEA, ATF, ICE involved? Sure. And the list goes on ...

Gun shops being strong-armed to make bulk sales to strawmen. That’s the ATF.

Guns sold to criminals. That’s the FBI.

Guns along the Rio Grande. That’s DHS.

Guns walking across the border? That’s ICE. And the Border Patrol perhaps, though so far it looks like they may have been patsies.

Several other similar programs, some in the Caribbean islands. That’s CIA and State.

Guns sold to criminal gangs of drug dealers. That’s DEA.

Gangs that are big enough and well armed enough to be a threat to the government of Mexico? Absolutely CIA and State. Can you say “junta” without a who?

Six or more law enforcement agencies working together? You know damn well DOJ is in it up to their eyeballs.

And who do they report to? No guesses necessary. The top end of the Executive and Legislative branches. Which means The White House, and probably several super select committees in Congress. It probably also involves some Spy Boys and their Costly Toys too, but that will never surface.

This stink sting operation was running in several states, so it’s a no-brainer to realize that any number of state law enforcement agencies and elected state officials were also in the know, at least to some extent.

And not one reporter ... reporters who orgasmically splooge themselves over those Watergate movies, look how we the Press connected the dots and brought down a president ... wants to lift a pen to connect dot one to dot two.

Not one of them has looked at the weapons themselves, and followed that lead. Were they actual fully automatic M16s? If they were, and they were new ones, then who approved the production run for several thousand for private sale? Machine guns are almost as tightly controlled as the Ebola virus on Plum Island. Were they military issue weapons? If so, then from where? Actual surplus, or did they “walk” off base in the middle of the night? That would bring the services into it, and yet another criminal element if those were current military guns that had been stolen from several bases. Hidden behind all the smoke and mirrors is the ugly fact that it wasn’t just guns, fully automatic or not, that walked. Grenades were involved too, and anti-aircraft weaponry. How does that not drag in the military? Is there some special branch of government that watches over the war munitions and isn’t in uniform?

This is one of the biggest boondoggle in American history, with dirty tentacles spread everywhere. In a just world it would bring down the government. No, not just Obama, but the heads of the House and Senate, the top levels of a dozen major agencies, a boxful of judges perhaps, perhaps some top military brass, and a truckload of state officials. And an army of pencil pushers and badge flashers. It would be Purge Time In Moscow, 1937, all over again. Only with real trials for good reason, in public, and the screaming hordes of citizens with torches at the gates. Because F&F is blatant proof that a secret cabal existed. A hidden government within the government, out of sight and above the law, with secret political intentions. And the housecleaning ought to be horrendous. My point is that everyone knew, from the very top to the bottom, and not one of them had the integrity or the common sense to speak up. And for that, they should all fry. ALL OF THEM.

Instead, all the average Joe Stupid on the street knows is that poor old Eric Holder is getting hassled by some committee all the time because he’s black.

Rlly? Srsly?

New report released by GOP lawmakers suggests top Justice officials had extensive knowledge of Operation Fast and Furious

Top Department of Justice officials had extensive knowledge of and involvement in Operation Fast and Furious, claims a new report released Thursday, hours before Attorney General Eric Holder’s scheduled testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The report released by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, top lawmakers investigating the botched gunrunning operation, claims Justice Department officials in Washington and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were involved in the coordination in the early stages of the operation.

Justice headquarters “had much greater knowledge of, and involvement in, Fast and Furious than it has previously acknowledged,” the memo reads.

The memo, which contradicts claims by the Justice Department, is based upon interviews, documents and emails involving key players of the operation run by the ATF. The operation allowed some 2,000 weapons cross the border into Mexico and into the hands of cartel members.

Gak, why is this even news?

Is it finally, finally becoming obvious to even the willfully blind that F & F had to be run from the very top, with the involvement of all the major players and all the LEO departments? We figured that one out 7 months ago, and then a short essay by a DC insider on how the system works (meetings, sign-offs, emails, CYA when things are ‘above your pay grade’, etc ) drove the point home. No kidding. It could not have been any other way. DHS, BATFE, FBI, DOJ, and the whole alphabet of agencies probably even including the CIA are in this up to their eyeballs and have been since the beginning. State Department too in all likelihood, right up to the very top (HRH HRC) and that strongly implies White House involvement. “We’ve got something in the works, under the radar” quoth Fearless Reader back in the day.

The media is only starting to bay about Eric Holder. They haven’t even begun to think about Janet Napolitano. It might take them a century to have the epiphany that at least a handful of Senators and Congressweasels are also involved, along with quite a number of top state officials. Fast and Furious was not an accident and it did not operate in a vacuum.

We The People aren’t stupid, and we figured out the obvious months ago: that a large chunk of our federal government and some of our state governments were knowingly involved in a wide ranging action that was this close to being an act of war against a neighboring sovereign nation, all done to further their Alinksi plans to fracture society and to serve as the ultimate example for shredding the keystone piece of the Constitution that protects the rest of it.

It failed. The word leaked out. And now DC is furiously blowing smoke and twisting mirrors as fast as they can. Needless to say, the media is fairly complicit, since this has never been more than a bit of a small scale back burner sidebar story for just a few of the networks. If this shit ever really hits the fan, Holder will be left holding the bag ... and nobody will ever connect the dots to all the other players involved.

Fast and Furious is 1000 times dirtier than Watergate. This should have toppled the whole government. It is the prime example of the hubris in DC and their above-the-law elitist mentality. And for the most part, the mindless sheeple ignore it or are completely unaware of it, because the media doesn’t want to splatter any mud on their masters.

Two Amongst Thousands

“A Poster Child For Greed”

Utterly Corrupt Prince George’s County Maryland County Exec Jack Johnson (DEMOCRAT) Gets 7+ Years In Jail

Wife Leslie, Former County Councilwoman (DEMOCRAT), Gets 1

imageimage
That’s some serious Audacity Pair



Former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson, who pleaded guilty to extortion charges earlier this year, was sentenced Tuesday to more than seven years in prison.

Prosecutors called Johnson’s corruption scheme one of the most audacious in Maryland history.

Johnson, 62, pleaded guilty in May to federal charges of extortion and witness and evidence tampering, as well as taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from pay-to-play business dealings.

Johnson apologized at the hearing, saying he was “haunted” by his actions.

“I’ve lost everything—my reputation, all of the things I worked for,” he said.

U.S. District Court Judge Peter Messitte said he was not moved by the good deeds that Johnson and his lawyers had said he performed in office.

“If you’ve done them, good for you,” Messitte said. “That’s what you were elected to do. You were not elected to line your pockets. You were not elected to corrupt the system the way you did.”

Johnson was the executive of the county from 2002 to December 2010. Prior to that, he was the county’s state’s attorney and spent nearly a decade as an attorney for the IRS Office of Chief Counsel.

Jack Johnson could have been a role model for integrity, but he chose to be a poster child for greed,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “The facts of this case read like a dime novel because the defendant acted as if corruption was the normal way of doing business. It is our responsibility to prove him wrong.”

Last month, state officials released wiretap recordings that helped convict Johnson and his wife, Leslie.

On the tapes, the couple can be heard frantically deciding what to do with a $100,000 bribery check. Leslie Johnson eventually flushes the check down a toilet. Her husband could then be heard telling her to put nearly $80,000 in cash in her panties.

He took a CHECK as a bribe? Wow, they breed a special kind of special child in that state, boy howdy. And 80 grand in cash in his wife’s underwear? My bet is she ain’t no size 4 to stash that pile of money. Don’t you know nothing girl? That kind of cash belongs in the freezer! Horry Clap.

More at this link too, and some audio from the phone taps is here.

hey hey hey, bye bye

BLAGO Gets 14 Years

Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison Wednesday for 18 felony convictions stemming from trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat once occupied by Barack Obama, shaking people down in exchange for campaign contributions and lying to federal agents.

Blagojevich told the court that he made “terrible mistakes” and was “unbelievably sorry” for his crimes.

“I am responsible,” Blagojevich said, apologizing for his actions and his earlier assertions that he was unjustly targeted by prosecutors.

Damn shame the prosecutor couldn’t/wouldn’t rope in the rest of the gang because they’re all guilty as hell too.

Illinois’ previous governor, Republican governor George Ryan, was sent to jail in 2006 for 6 years. That gives them 2 former governors in the pokey at the same time. I think we have a record here folks!

It’s a start

One Down, One On Deck, One Still In Office

Tony Resko sentenced to 10.5 years jail time

Blago to be sentenced December 6th



A former fundraiser to President Barack Obama was sentenced to 10.5 years in federal prison today. Tony Rezko, 56, will end up spending only seven years behind bars because the judge gave him credit for time he’s already served.

In 2008, Rezko was convicted of pay to play politics including fraud, bribery and extorting millions from businesses seeking contracts with the state of Illinois while Rod Blagojevich was Governor.
...

Rezko’s sentencing of 10.5 years could set a precedent for the upcoming sentencing of convicted Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Blagojevich was found guilty on multiple corruption charges during his re-trial earlier this year. His sentencing is scheduled for Tuesday December 6th in Chicago.

A Shot In The Arm For The Economy?

Nearly Half A Billion Spent On Smallpox Vaccine

Exactly ZERO cases of smallpox in USA

Pharma Company is Big Obama Donar of course!



It occurs to me that if a) there was no corporate tax, then b) then no companies could make political contributions, and c) there would be no charges of corrupt crony capitalism.
But there would still be graft. Payouts for friends, political appointments, sweetheart deals ... it never ends. But the level of cronyism under the current administration is just beyond comprehension. Hundreds of billions of dollars worth. It never ends. It never even slows down.


$433M Smallpox Drug Contract to Company Tied to Dem Donor

Scientists are questioning a $433 million government contract for a smallpox drug they say the country doesn’t need, amid concerns over the way the project was secured for a firm tied to a Democratic donor.

The Los Angeles Times reported over the weekend that U.S. officials took unusual steps to award the contract to Siga Technologies. Democratic donor Ronald Perelman has the controlling share of the company.

The article cited emails showing the Obama administration replaced the lead negotiator on the project following complaints from Siga—Siga was apparently concerned about the government’s objections to how much money Siga would make off the deal.

Earlier, in December, the government also reportedly blocked other companies from bidding on the contract in a second round.

Siga ultimately won the contract in May, but some questioned the price of the drug—approximately $255 per dose—and the practicality of the project.

The government already has a smallpox vaccine on reserve. Siga’s pill is meant to help people diagnosed too late for the vaccine to be effective, according to the Times.

Reporting from Washington — Over the last year, the Obama administration has aggressively pushed a $433-million plan to buy an experimental smallpox drug, despite uncertainty over whether it is needed or will work.

Senior officials have taken unusual steps to secure the contract for New York-based Siga Technologies Inc., whose controlling shareholder is billionaire Ronald O. Perelman, one of the world’s richest men and a longtime Democratic Party donor.

When Siga complained that contracting specialists at the Department of Health and Human Services were resisting the company’s financial demands, senior officials replaced the government’s lead negotiator for the deal, interviews and documents show.

When Siga was in danger of losing its grip on the contract a year ago, the officials blocked other firms from competing.

Siga was awarded the final contract in May through a “sole-source” procurement in which it was the only company asked to submit a proposal. The contract calls for Siga to deliver 1.7 million doses of the drug for the nation’s biodefense stockpile. The price of approximately $255 per dose is well above what the government’s specialists had earlier said was reasonable, according to internal documents and interviews.

Once feared for its grotesque pustules and 30% death rate, smallpox was eradicated worldwide as of 1978 and is known to exist only in the locked freezers of a Russian scientific institute and the U.S. government. There is no credible evidence that any other country or a terrorist group possesses smallpox.

Siga’s drug, an antiviral pill called ST-246, would be used to treat people who were diagnosed with smallpox too late for the vaccine to help. Yet the new drug cannot be tested for effectiveness in people because of ethical constraints — and no one knows whether animal testing could prove it would work in humans.

Hey, remember when the media had shit-fits 24-7 over some no-bid contracts awarded to Halliburton and Blackhawk for work in the Iraq war zone, even though no other companies existed that could perform the work in the time and scope necessary? Do you think they’ll wind up their alarm sirens and start screaming over this one, when at least a dozen other companies could have made this drug that may not even work and is probably not even needed? [crickets] [more crickets]

Remember when those same media “watchdogs” went turbo-monkey-poo over “no WMDS” in Iraq, and how Iraq was considered the most likely evil nation to even have a bio-terror capability?

So? So what will they say now? [even more crickets]

Reparations Passes

40 Acres and a Mule? Nah, just gimme $50,000 cash money

Pigford II gets the green light; $1.25 Billion to be paid out to 68,000 black “farmers” who missed out on the $1 Billion Pigford I windfall a decade ago



This is such blatant racist bullshit I can’t see straight. This is the scam of a lifetime. There aren’t 68,000 black farmers in America and there never were. Certainly not in the late 20th century. And now it’s going to be free money, uncontested to any who claim that they at least attempted to be farmers but gave up because they got discouraged because USDA was rumored to not be giving farm loans to black people. And all of this is the direct doing of a certain Senator from Illinois, one Barack Hussein Obama.


The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has approved the Pigford II settlement. U.S. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says this approval is another important step to ensure some level of justice for black farmers and ranchers who faced discrimination when trying to obtain services from USDA. According to Attorney General Eric Holder - the settlement allows USDA and African-American farmers to focus on the future - and brings these farmers one step closer to having their claims heard. The bill approved by the House and Senate included strong protections against waste, fraud and abuse to ensure the integrity of the claims process.

Oh horseshit. There is no government program that isn’t chock full of waste, fraud, and abuse. It’s going to be a madhouse, and the rules will be bent so fast and so far you’d think they were made from rubber bands.

President Obama said in a statement that the settlement “is another important step forward in addressing an unfortunate chapter in USDA’s civil rights history. This agreement will provide overdue relief and justice to African-American farmers and bring us closer to the ideals of freedom and equality that this country was founded on.”

The implementation of the settlement to redress racial bias against black farmers comes during the term of the nation’s first African-American president, a point not lost during Friday’s White House briefing with reporters.

[regarding Pigford I from 1990] “The farmers didn’t think anything would come of it. They had been disappointed over the years by the government,” Friedman said, “yet 16,000 of them collected something like $1.1 billion in that case.”

Word spread that the government was willing to pay reparations, but other farmers who had valid claims of bias had missed the deadline to file. Friedman said Congress and the president then extended the statute of limitations “to get these disappointed people back in the case.”

Boyd said the problem now is making sure farmers who became “late filers” are now aware the settlement is ready to go.

“Some of these guys were in their 60s and maybe by now have passed away,” Boyd said. “Their family needs to know that if Daddy filed, they can still pursue his claim.”

Many thousands of claimants from the first go-round were thrown out because their applications were obviously fraudulent. Actually, most of the applications were fraudulent. Look it up; it’s all online. Now all some younger person will have to do is show up, claim that daddy made a claim, and that the government lost it due to racist behavior or some such crap, and they’ll get a Track A check for 50 large. Any real farmers will real claims will take Track B, which could net them payments of up to a quarter million dollars. Or more!

The settlement is the second one reached with black farmers led by Timothy Pigford, who filed a class-action suit in 1997 alleging racial discrimination in farm loan programs. According to the suit, beginning 1981 through 1996, USDA officials rejected loan applications from black farmers or approved loans with unfair terms.

The government paid out $1 billion in 1999 to thousands of farmers but thousands more were left out because they filed late claims.

Last year, the USDA reached a $1.25 billion agreement with farmers excluded from the first settlement. Congress had appropriated $100 million for the Pigford II case in 2008 through a farm bill, leaving $1.15 billion that still required approval.

Republicans led by Reps. Michelle Bachman (R-MN) and Steve King (R-IA) had withheld their support for the second settlement, citing fraudulent claims despite what agriculture officials said were strong protections against abuse.

Friedman, who also approved the first Pigford payment, said in his order there was minimal objection to the second settlement, which includes payouts and loan forgiveness for farmers who file valid claims.

And where do you think the money is coming from? Why, it’s coming from the Food Stamp funds, now that those rolls have more than doubled under Obama. Andrew Breitbart explains:

…Vilsack said in the interview he is reluctant to cut the food stamp program, saying that its budget authority already was reduced to pay for teacher salaries and to make settlements for farmers who had sued USDA for discrimination in the Pigford II case.

America’s poor are suffering to pay for Pigford fraud. Your government at work.

But it’s a proud, proud moment at the White House for the Proud family -

“Since my first day at USDA, I made it a priority to treat all Americans with respect and dignity and to ensure equal access to our programs. Court approval of the Pigford settlement is another important step to ensure some level of justice for black farmers and ranchers who faced discrimination when trying to obtain services from USDA,” said Secretary Vilsack. “President Obama, Attorney General Holder and I are thrilled by the court’s approval so we can continue turning the page on this sad chapter in USDA history.

Don’t let any facts get in the way, you could get hurt:

The U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistical Abstracts for the United States indicate that in the period from 1981 through 1996, in which the alleged discrimination took place, the number of black farmers in the United States peaked at 33,000 in 1982. But the 15,640 people who actually received compensation under Pigford combined with the 73,800 who applied for compensation after the deadline represent a total of 89,440 potential claims.

Back on Oct. 14, 1999, John W. Boyd Jr., who is president of the National Black Farmers Association, presented written testimony to the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Department Operations, Oversight, Nutrition and Forestry, in which he said that at the end of the millennium “there will be less than 18,000 black farmers” in the United States.

Another advocate Gary R. Grant, president of the Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Association, said in a prepared statement at the same subcommittee hearing: “In 1920, 925,000 farmers (14 percent) were black. Today, there are less than 17,000 depending upon the USDA definition of ‘farmer,’ but I assure you the number is far less.”

Protection against fraud, abuse, and waste my arse. “far less” than 17,000 farmers, and Pigford I paid 15,640 of them. As if EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM had been screwed over by USDA. Right. Sure. But that fraud is in the past now, though it sounds to me like perhaps a couple hundred missed the filing deadline back then, yet somehow that number is now more than 68,000. In other words, it’s nearly complete fraud. The real farmers were compensated more than two decades ago.

PS - the 40 acres and a mule was never an actual promise from the government, or even from a general or a magistrate running one of the occupied areas in 1865. It was the policy of General Sherman “as he was marching through Georgia” to get local slaves to cooperate. More than 10,000 of them were given land in the coastal lowlands, but when the war was over and Lincoln was assassinated, the new President Andrew Johnson (a pro-slavery Democrat) kicked them all out and gave the land back to the earlier white owners.
Naturally, in the “blame Bush” inside-out way of the world, ”40 acres and a mule” has come to symbolize the failure of Reconstruction, which wasn’t a failure at all initially, and didn’t happen for several years after this to begin with.

Another Drop In The Bucket

Next Green Failure



This one is almost too small to notice, not even $100 million. Still, it’s your money, and it’s gone, and I bet if you could turn over this rock you’d find Obama donor roaches on the board, scurrying for the shadows. Crony socialsim and a “green bubble”. Any fool with a green scam plan got fat wads of cash from the gov, while proven energy companies got the shaft. Or, as is the case with the oil drilling and the coal mining industry, they got the shaft taken away!


(Reuters) - Beacon Power Corp filed for bankruptcy on Sunday just a year after the energy storage company received a $43 million loan guarantee from a controversial U.S. Department of Energy program.

The move comes about two months after solar panel maker Solyndra also filed for bankruptcy, setting off criticism of the government loan program.

The department guaranteed $535 million in loans to Solyndra, and Congress is investigating whether political influence played a role.

Beacon Power used the government-guaranteed-loan to build a 20-megawatt flywheel energy storage plant in Stephentown, New York.

The company said in documents filed with Delaware’s bankruptcy court that it had $72 million in assets and $47 million in debts.


A flywheel energy storage plant. A flywheel energy storage plant?? Excuse me, am I reading this right? The government handed out a fortune for a perpetual motion scheme? Horry clap. Can you get any more naive than that????

I’m gonna heave

most transparent administration in history



Rep. Edolphous Towns (D-NY) has introduced the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011. That bill would do with Obama’s presidential records what Obama has already done to his personal and collegiate records: Seal them up.

In an obvious effort to protect President Barack Obama, a group of congressional Democrats has introduced legislation to create an official process that will allow the commander-in-chief to keep presidential records secret after he leaves office.

Ironically, Obama revoked a similar George W. Bush order in one of his first official acts as president. In 2001 Bush penned an executive order severely limiting public access to his presidential records. Shortly after swearing in, Obama killed it as part of his much-ballyhooed commitment to government transparency. At the time, the new president claimed that he was giving the American people greater access to “historic documents.”

If the Democrats’ proposed measure (Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011) becomes law, former presidents will be allowed to assert a new “constitutionally based privilege” against disclosing records of their liking.

full text of the bill here

No. Not this president. Not any president. Not Bush, not Clinton, not Reagan. Not one word, one recording, one photo or one document. Granted that certain things have to be kept secret for security reasons, National Secrets Act or some such. But those should be accessible to people with the proper clearance levels, and there shouldn’t be all that much of it. The day to day stuff and everything else belongs to us. We The People are paying the bill, so the work product, it’s ideas, and all the machinations behind it belong to us. Every word spoken, every doodle drawn, every gold tee shanked. There is no 9 to 5 time clock for the job, so every utterance from every hour is public. That such a bill should be introduced more than a year before the next election really smells. And Edolphus Towns ought to be run out of town on a rail for putting forth such a tyrannical bill.

Moonbats stole Moon rock!

You just can’t make this stuff up:

A long-lost, highly valuable Moon rock brought back from the Apollo 17 mission has turned up in the files of Bill Clinton.

The rock was one of 50 presented to each state, and was given to Arkansas while the ex-president was governor. The rock, worth millions of dollars, had been missing since at least 1980 until an archivist found it in old gubernatorial papers. Bobby Roberts, director of the Central Arkansas Library System, told Reuters the archivist opened a box previously archived as “Arkansas flag plaque.” The rock and a state flag were originally affixed to the plaque, but the rock had fallen off and the plaque had been misplaced.

“The moon rock, which is in a plastic container, had fallen off the plaque,” Roberts said, explaining that the rock was at the bottom of the box. “The archivist immediately knew what he had discovered.”

Hmmm, 1980. If my memory serves, Clinton was the poster ‘Boy Governor’ in 1979. I remember because GEO magazine had him as a feature story. I was a freshman at college then. GEO made him sound like God’s gift to Arkansas. So he stole it during his first year as governor. Interesting.

Source.

No doubt Sandy Berger sneaked it out in his socks.
