Resolute… 18 August 2009

Posted by marisacat in Divertissements.

Three little Guinea pigs escape their owner and make a bolt for freedom in Central Park, New York City, before being found and placed back in their little plastic house

That resolute little march of the guinea pigs… I don’t know if they could survive in Central Park, but I was rooting for them.. but then, they were recaptured.

From a gallery at the Telegraph on unexpected animals in the urban landscape..

hmm I plucked out a snip of this same post from IOZ in the last thread… but here is another snip:

[T]he Road to Serfdom did not run through cozy, consensus-socialist post-war Europe, but through an increasingly Tsarist America, which has succeeded in turning its lower 95% into a legit peasant class through false-credit-ownership residential tenancy and a variety of other financial and political scams, from the Ballot Initiative to the low introductory APR. It is the most genius system of concentrated ownership in the history of human political organization–formerly, a serf at least knew he was a serf.

When “health care reform” means a mandate for purchase of at-minimum high-deductible insurance, or some similar transparent mechanism for moving dollars in the usual direction, everyone will claim victory, mirabile dictu, the righteous victorious, the villains defeated, and the Dr. Ken Melanis of the world still pulling three million a year.

Lets just leave Ray where he is , grant him the Land and authority over the Empire’s Army to administer as he sees fit,

Oh that’s right , we’ve already done that, mere paperwork a bit slow….

There was a caller the other night to KGO, a former seal now doing private… 14 years in the mil and 7 in private. he said the contract paramilitaries are parked in Kirkuk, other wise it would blow. AND he said we never should have gone in and shouldn’t be there now. The disgust just rolled off the call…

Which made him credible to me.

Tiny Revolution has a look at prosecutions in Argentina for the “Dirty War”… and a look a the flip side. Flip side is the US.

[E]ven if it did take 33 years, these vicious bastards will be spending the rest of their lives looking out through prison bars. Beautiful. Thanks yet again to Latin America for giving us a glimpse of what a civilized society looks like.

For comparison, let’s take a look at how the United States is currently dealing with one of its most infamous at-large criminals, three decades after his worst crimes:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a speech on July 28 to the U.S.-China Business Council that Kissinger has been a close adviser and praised the former secretary of state for his contributions.

“And on a personal note, let me say that since taking this job, I’ve relied on the wise counsel of many of my predecessors, and Secretary Kissinger has been among the most generous and thoughtful with his guidance and advice,” Clinton said.

From The Note

Bob Herbert is all but giving up: “The public deserves better. The drug companies, the insurance industry and the rest of the corporate high-rollers have their tentacles all over this so-called reform effort, squeezing it for all it’s worth,” he writes in his New York Times column. “Meanwhile, the public — struggling with the worst economic downturn since the 1930s — is looking on with great anxiety and confusion. If the drug companies and the insurance industry are smiling, it can only mean that the public interest is being left behind.” . . .

Chickie baby, he’s YOUR GUY. Take a bow.

[A]ll the contemptuous sneers at the media during the Bush years have now come home to roost in the mouth of the man who represents the very person who ran vowing to overturn the mendacity of the Bush administration—and who was elected, in part, because a shamed media rose to protect him.

It doesn’t matter whether a reporter is from ABC News or Fox News, Gibbs will sink to the occasion—he is as antagonistic to the former’s Jake Tapper as to the latter’s Major Garrett. Indeed, one of the most curious results of Gibbs’ Sarcast-athons is to create in both Tapper and Garrett identical facial expression while jousting with the press secretary: somewhere between stony and clenched, their professional pride ready to burst or pounce. . . . snippy

US troops to return to northern Iraq

General Ray Odierno, the US commander in Iraq, plans to quell the rise in violence in the north, despite their withdrawal at the end of June.

By Our Foreign Staff
Published: 12:28PM BST 18 Aug 2009

The move, in order to help prevent civil war between Kurds and Arabs, would be a departure from the security pact that called for Americans to pull back from populated areas on June 30.

The US soldiers would work with Iraqi government forces and local Kurdish troops to secure the largely unguarded villages along the faultline of land disputed between Arabs and Kurds snip

PMO Iqaluit gaffe draws smiles, frowns

(CP) – 2 hours ago

OTTAWA — An unfortunate blunder by the Prime Minister’s Office has residents of Nunavut alternately chuckling and cringing.

A news release sent out Monday outlined Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s itinerary as he began a five-day tour of the North. The release repeatedly spelled the capital of Nunavut as Iqualuit – rather than Iqaluit.

The extra “u” makes a world of difference in the Inuktitut language.

Iqaluit, properly spelled, means “many fish.”

Spelled with an extra “u,” the Nunavut language commissioner’s office says the word translates as a derogatory reference to “people with unwiped bums.”

Bloggers from Iqaluit were quickly online ridiculing the gaffe – some light-hearted, some angry.

Iqaluit was named capital of Nunavut when the territory was created in 1999.

A news release today from the PMO spells Iqaluit correctly.

As I wrote him yesterday (for what it’s worth) going to the Green Party or to no party is exactly what I’m doing if Obama doesn’t get his shit together and start leading on health care and a lot of other issues. So far all he’s done is repeat all of Bill Clinton’s mistakes in his first year in office, beginning with naming Robert Rubin’s boy-toys to clean up the economic mess that they themselves created. I’ve voted for every Democratic candidate for president since Stevenson in 1956, but I’ve fucking had it with voting for well-spoken sold-out cocksuckers in a game that’s rigged from the start.

Israel Quietly Halts Settlements Despite Publicly Rebuffing Obama

{AP via HuffPo–}

JERUSALEM — Israel has quietly moved to halt new housing projects in the West Bank, while outwardly rebuffing U.S. pressure to stop construction in its settlements, Israeli government officials, peace activists and settlers said Tuesday.

It isn’t the full settlement freeze the Obama administration has been demanding, but it indicates that Israel is seeking a compromise in what has become a rare public disagreement with the U.S., its most important ally.

The government has issued no new construction permits for months, the officials, activists and settlers said, a rare agreement among elements that are usually bitter enemies – evidence that this is a new policy aimed at defusing the settlement squabble…….

Full text from Politico’s “44” Whiteboard…

Mary Frances Berry, Professor of American Social Thought and History, U. Penn.:

With the right and left objecting, pundits might think Obama is in a mess on health care reform. But by his standards, he is on the way to success. He expects to receive a bill he can sign even if it includes only expanded coverage and a few regulations, acceptable to the insurance industry with no public option or significant cost controls. He can go happily on vacation, believing that with his amiable capacity for concessions Republicans cannot stop legislation in the Senate and some may even vote with Democrats. In the House, liberals- a.k.a. progressives- will, in the end, go along so the Democratic Party can claim a legislative victory.

What this tells us about Obama’s leadership style is what we already know from failed campaign promises, including transparency in decision-making and the repudiation of No Child Left behind. Except for his visceral reaction to the Henry Louis Gates episode, which he quickly took back, the President has no strong policy convictions or bottom line. In other words, elected as a new kind of leader, who would change Washington’s ways, so far he is just another politician- and a highly successful one.

He expects to receive a bill he can sign even if it includes only expanded coverage and a few regulations, acceptable to the insurance industry with no public option or significant cost controls.

which is all the Dems ever planned on doing. The big part was mandated coverage with penalties, IMO.

I think the ”successful” part, going forward at least, is still in the jury room.

The American people buy shit for so called health care reform, buy shit about the wars.. buy shit for transparency… etc., and you can just turn the lights off.

Welp. This is a surprise!
Pushback against Christie. ( I Still think Corzine’s toast)
Here’s the rundown…

So the Rove emails released recently ( pushed by Menendez) as part of the “ongoing investigation” -( fuckin on the slab until Corzine crumped in the polls) – anyways- one noted Rove and Christie talked ,,,wherein.. a future Christie run for NJ Gov was “discussed”…

Proof ! BRRRREAKING ! Proof! says Corzine …that Politics has entered the DOJ!

Well, that story has bounced off with little effect on last weeks polls, ( + 11 Christie), since ‘Rovian” – to the long suffering souls in New Jersey at least – is a commonly known synonym for “Lightweight” , ‘Amateur” , and “He Who Doesn’t Own His Own Organ Refrigeration, Car Crushing, And Body Disposal Facility”.

BUT there’s this OTHER story .

Herr und Frau Christie loaned a staffer 46 grand…taking a mortgage on the lawyers house..HE Say that she (the DOJ lawyer in the USA NJ office) and her husband were in a bind after her hub lost his sales job…Christie and his wife had the dough so loaned them money and are being repaid $499.22 a month…yada, yada, pocket money yada…

BUT! Not so fast! says Corzine! The Financial Propriety Candidate!

Tax Records show he didn’t declare the interest as income!
And the Loan wasn’t on his campaign filing!

ALMOST the sourest grape in Jersey had this to say about it:
D’oh! And so close!

Hey I loathe Corzine but score one for Governor Goldman Sachs on this… Maybe Christie is taking the dive. Under no illusions here either, the Parties collude and Both are corrupt.

But isn’t it time we elect a New Corrupt @sshole?
God forbid we actually vote GREEN or SOCIALIST.
You know, a genuinely Responsible alternative to the Donklephant Shyster Establishment for a change…

But hold on to your hat..if you think I’m sour
check this guy…..

Posted by hrpufnstuff on 08/18/09 at 2:29PM

I don’t care if he murders my family.
Anyone running against Corzine has my vote.

What does it mean? I DON”T KNOW! Maybe Christie has the Reformed Mafia Family Serial Killer Vote Sewn Up!

BUT! According to the NYT …Marra, (a Dem) was asked about the interoffice loan and through a spokesman said it was disclosed to staff when Christie was USA NJ.

( Nothing actually – just a jumpy Pavlovian Response)
We got dead operatives tied to Menendez , Charlie Rangel, and Schumer.
We got kidneys for sale. WITH complimentary Handbag!
We got 5 murders a night in Newark.
But The Dems got this, by diddly. And hey , all props when they’re due…Christie’s DumDeDumDum Dumb response is funny tho
(in bold)

ANYWAYS!!! Here’s the Times!

Mr. Christie said top officials in the office, who work closely together, “all knew it” when Ms. Brown’s husband lost his job and ran up credit card debt. Mr. Christie said he and his wife offered Ms. Brown their help, and she accepted.

The loan, which was recorded Oct. 22, 2007, with the Morris County clerk, carried a 5.5 percent yearly interest rate, with monthly payments of $499.22 over 10 years; Mr. Christie said he received a $500 check every month. He said that he charged interest because he thought it was “important to have an arms-length transaction,” and that he and Ms. Brown agreed upon a rate that seemed fair.

Yet when it came time to report his income on his taxes and financial disclosures, he said, he did not think of the loan as an investment.

“I never thought of that as an asset that was giving me income,” he said. “So that’s why it’s not there.”

Ms. Brown was promoted to executive assistant in early 2008. She was promoted to first assistant shortly after Mr. Christie resigned.

Mr. Christie stressed that his interest income from the loan was minimal: $420 in 2007, and $2,400 in 2008. He also said that while his office has prosecuted people for tax evasion and for filing incomplete financial disclosures, it did so only when those actions were purposeful and typically when they were connected to a more serious crime.

Mr. Christie said others in the “front office” including Ralph J. Marra Jr., now the acting United States attorney, knew of the loan; a spokesman for Mr. Marra confirmed that. But Mr. Christie did not disclose the loan to his superiors at the Justice Department, a campaign aide said Tuesday.

If Marra is smart he better start pushing back publicly that the Obama’s DOJ Brass is trying to scuttle his case or they’ll eat him alive…
Make no mistake it’s Lanny Breuer initiating this. And in some ways I think the NY Jew Crew panicked and really fucked up by quickly dealing an ethics investigation against Marra, the prosecutor. It really isn’t about Christie IMO. It’s about discrediting the takedown of the Rabbis.

As for the NJ electoral consequences I think if they keep pushing this The Marra Aspersions it only reinforces the massive scale of the D corruption arrests. I think it will backfire on Corzine, the Dems, and on Obama. Idiots. It’s going to depress turnout much more among Dems that it is with the R…And if they are running death by a thousand little paper cuts on Christie, it’ll reek of WEAK.

And THAT’s what WAS reported. Party Bosses , Union Goons were swimming in cash. Trips comp’d to the casino’s , suites gratis “Corzine’s people” , chips drawn for play or to cash in and take home.

Right out of the Godfather, except Moe Green’s people bought out the Corleones. Nice Italian name for the running, too.
