I am just catching up to the story of the anti gay laws coming down in Uganda. And who is in the middle of it?

CALI evangels.

The New York Times released a report about the link between three anti-gay American evangelicals — two of whom live in Northern California — and a bill in Uganda that would make homosexuality punishable by death.

The Times notes that back in March, Scott Lively, Caleb Lee Brundidge, and Don Schmierer shared their “wisdom” on homosexuality with thousands at a conference in Kampala, Uganda.  snip

Of course now the evangels are loudly denouncing the new bill that says gays should be liable for capital punishment.

Except they also really really really like the bill…

Lively applauded “the courage of the Ugandan people” for resisting the “relentless pressure of the international ‘gay’ lobby,” while denouncing the bill:

 Let me be absolutely clear. I do not support the proposed anti-homosexuality law as written. It does not emphasize rehabilitation over punishment and the punishment that it calls for is unacceptably harsh. However, if the offending sections were sufficiently modified, the proposed law would represent an encouraging step in the right direction. As one of the first laws of this century to recognize that the destructiveness of the ‘gay’ agenda warrants opposition by government, it would deserve support from Christian believers and other advocates of marriage-based culture around the world.  ….

Calabama… and sadly, over Prop 8, all the haters, many religiously inclined, found each other.

Think Madman said something about dropping flies? Ritter of Co says buh bye.

[T]he first-term Democrat was elected in 2006 in a pivotal swing-voting state. He has been widely considered a rising star in the Democratic Party.

Two Democrats with knowledge of Ritter’s decision disclosed it on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly discuss the governor’s political plans.

Ritter did not return phone calls seeking reaction. Sources said Ritter called a news conference on Wednesday to announce his decision. A spokesman for Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., said she and Pat Waak, the state Democratic Party chairmwoman, would call a meeting of senior elected officials from Colorado on Wednesday to discuss how to go forward as a party….

Really! Whaddup?

HAROLD FORD JR… son of the misbegotten South to run against Gillibrand…. Or at least grabbing headlines snorting something. Or smoking something. And at least some well known NYC names are slapping him on the back.


Hey go for it. One more conservative vote.

BooHooHooMan - 6 January 2010

😆 Lemme have a hit of the laughing gas for Dodd.

Followed by an Aqualung draw on the helium balloon prior to chatting up Harold Ford..

About a dozen high-profile Democrats have expressed interest in backing a candidacy by Mr. Ford, including the financier Steven Rattner, who, along with his wife, Maureen White, has been among the country’s most prolific Democratic fund-raisers.

I’d drive up from New Jersey to gather signatures for him. Poor Guy.
LOL. Maybe Young Harold can offer to broker MY vote from NJ……
Other than a practised cadence and being trained in the ministerial stacatto, I think he’s a dumbfuck, frankly.
So he moved to New York after his 2006 TN Senate Loss, figuring he’d get big retainers while waiting for the Clintons, the Rubins, Schumers and Ratners of the world to vault him into the Cabinet or pave his way into Hill’s old seat.. OOPS. He went begging for a Cabinet slot and got the bum’s rush. Too funny.

Poor Harold, like Ob, con men both,
HF.Jr NEVER had juice of his own.
But Ob proved a winner when he went to The Show…
Poor Harold™, maybe his family’s old funeral home business is still an option for him. It’d be nice in a way if that feigned gravitas returned to its roots.

Malcolm retires

The longtime head of EMILY’S list, Ellen Malcolm, is retiring, the group just announced, to be replaced by Stephanie Schirock, who is currently Sen. Jon Tester’s chief of staff.

The group is a juggernaut in Democratic primaries, with a model of finding and funding candidates early that many have tried to imitate.

Juggernaut?.. well they raise a lot of money off the wimmens. That much is clear.

Denver Post: ‘Ritter told other Democrats the job was taking a toll on his family and he could not be successful as a father and husband while running for governor, according to those briefed on the calls.

Gosh Can’t imagine why Granholm’s admin in MI would be unpopular.

[I]n Colorado, the epicenter of the recent Democratic resurgence in the interior west, it is telling that Ritter, a 53-year-old former Denver prosecutor who cruised to victory in 2006, would unexpectedly pull down the curtain on a promising career and that Bennet, the senator he appointed to a vacant Senate seat, would be in jeopardy of losing it.

In Michigan, a state battered by job losses but still a reliable Democratic bulwark in state and federal races in recent years, the heir apparent to two-term Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm is similarly quitting before even starting, unable to raise money or get out from under the shadow of what has become a deeply unpopular administration. …

Yemen opposes any US troops in terror fight

SAN’A, Yemen – Yemen’s foreign minister said Wednesday that his country opposes any direct intervention by U.S. or other foreign troops in the fight against al-Qaida.

Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi told The Associated Press in an interview that “there is a lot of sensitivity about foreign troops coming to Yemeni territory.”

Kind of late for that.

…a senior official told AFP on Wednesday that “Jordan has benefited since a year ago from anti-terrorist information provided by Humam Khalil al-Balawi and shared them with other (intelligence) services as part of the fight against terrorism.

“We coordinated with the United States about information relating to Afghanistan, where the United States is present. Jordan and the United States lured Balawai into continuing to provide anti-terror information.”

The official insisted there was no proof that Balawi was the suicide bomber who killed eight people in Afghanistan.

Slovak man takes hidden explosives on Dublin flight

Associated Press

Wednesday, 6 January 2010

A Slovak man unwittingly carried hidden explosives on board a weekend flight to Dublin after a Slovakian airport-security test went awry, Irish officials announced.

Slovak Interior Minister Robert Kalinak expressed “profound regret” to the Irish government for the oversight and the three-day delay in alerting Irish authorities. Dublin security chiefs said it was foolish for the Slovaks to hide bomb parts in the luggage of unwitting passengers under any circumstances.

Security experts said the episode illustrated the inadequacy of security screening of checked-in luggage — the very point the Slovak authorities had sought to test when they placed real bomb components in nine passengers’ bags on Saturday.

Eight were detected. But the bag containing about 90 grams (3 ounces) of RDX plastic explosive travelled undetected through security at Poprad-Tatry Airport in central Slovakia onto a Danube Wings aircraft. The Slovak carrier launched services to Dublin last month.

11. marisacat - 6 January 2010

ugh I had sort f a “lost” day……apparently obama has called for a “surge” of air martials… and added increased double enhanced whatever for incoming flights.

I doubt we are gonna survive our surgery on ourselves.

Here is a thread at NYT on experiences at airport check points.

On Dec. 28 I experienced the full-body pat down and hand luggage search that had just been implemented as I left Cancun to board a flight to JFK. I knew to expect the new rules because I’d been keeping up with current events by internet from my hotel. Several things bothered me about what occurred:

1. I was physically searched in an aggressive manner, it was a disturbing invasion of my personal space, like a criminal just caught by police.

2. I was searched in front of a crowd of others waiting to be searched, bringing to mind war-time camps. I tried not to think about the others watching.

3. There was no policy in place to check who I was or where I’d been. A check would have revealed no criminal record and the fact that I’d just spent a week on vacation at a resort.

4. Everyone on the plane was a tourist returning from a week at a resort–the meticulous searching was all about form, and had no practical purpose.

On some level, wearing a metal bracelet containing a lifetime’s worth of information, like the character of Kate/Offred in The Handmaid’s Tale, and swiping it when passing checkpoints might be more practical/preferable to having someone dig their thumbs into my bra.

I don’t know what the solution is, but what occurred in Cancun wasn’t it.

Obamacare 2010 a/k/a “Penalize, Overcharge, Deprive, Let ’em Die”: Part 1 – The Mandate Insanity

We are about to lose another freedom. The right to die uninusured. The right to die uninsured, that is, without paying a fine for being uninsured because we cannot afford the insurance that would keep us alive.

I think we can safely categorize this as an “insult to injury.” You thought you and your fellow citizens were entitled to humane universal health care, single-payer-Medicare-for-All-suckers? Think again. You can go ahead and die without insurance, but don’t think you can get away with that without having paid a fine for not having the insurance you can’t afford that might have saved you!

Am I the only one confounded and angered by this situation? Recently Jim Hightower referred to Obama as the President of Absurdistan. The “audacity of amorality”?

The new plan is being touted as a favor to us in these times that try one’s sanity as well as one’s soul. The so-called health care reform mandate rule that every citizen must be a customer of a mega-corporation-vendor or pay a fine to the IRS is actually a colossal super-gift to the medical corporate complex by the Prez and the super-majorities in the Congress. Millions of involuntary customers! Was it valiant whistleblower Wendell Potter who first called the faux reform the “Health Insurance Enrichment Act”?

Officials from the Transport Security Administration discovered Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s name on the Customs and Border Protection database after he boarded his Northwest flight in Amsterdam and were waiting to question him upon landing in Detroit, according to senior law enforcement officials.

The disclosure appears to show US intelligence was close to uncovering the terrorist plot, despite the barrage of criticism it has come under since Abdulmutallab, 23, failed to detonate a bomb aboard a Northwest airliner on Christmas Day. …

oh noes. From the LAT story. They will speak to us. Again today.

The administration plans to release results today of its review of the Christmas Day plot, following a directive by Obama to make public a declassified version of the report he has received.

The report will be edited to remove information that might tell how the intelligence was gathered or who the sources were, administration officials said. The report is expected to present a clearer picture of how the intelligence system failed to detect the threat.

Then, for the second time in three days, Obama is planning to speak publicly about the matter. Counter-terrorism chief John Brennan and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano also may speak about the breakdown as early as today.

I know I know… I could turn the TV off… Unfortunately this is a much more interesting car crash than the usual freeway sort.

L.A. surgeon indicted on charges of falsifying liver transplant records
January 6, 2010 | 4:34 pm

A surgeon who directed the liver transplant program at St. Vincent Medical Center in Los Angeles was indicted today by a federal grand jury for allegedly lying to officials after a liver accepted for one patient was transplanted into another who had a lower priority on a national waiting list, authorities said.

Richard Lopez, 54, was charged with conspiracy, concealing a material fact and six counts of falsification of records, the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles said.

In September 2003, St. Vincent was offered a liver for one of its patients, identified only as A-H, who was second on the match list for that liver, according to the indictment. At the time, the patient was in his home country of Saudi Arabia.

The backup patient for that liver was at a local hospital, prosecutors said.

But instead of allowing the backup patient to receive the liver, Lopez allegedly authorized a patient at St. Vincent to receive the organ, according to the indictment.

Afterward, Lopez and other unnamed co-conspirators allegedly provided false information to medical authorities and the national organ transplant network, saying that A-H had received the liver, the indictment said.

A-H was removed from the organ-waiting list, but Lopez told the patient that he was still on it, the indictment alleges. The patient eventually died.

The indictment comes three years after an extensive Times investigation into the nation’s organ transplant system.

The way this is headed …by the time they run these provincial road kill stories through the media milling machines – and there will be MANY –

~ I’d say ~ 🙄 look for the media narrative to move towards a diabolical taxidermist from Fairbanks Alaska whispered as the mastermind behind it all. She’ll be Muslim of course.
Afterall. To think otherwise would be anti-Semitic.

marisacat - 7 January 2010

what a mess!

BooHooHooMan - 7 January 2010

Rereading the thing closely..there are actually 3
recipients to keep track of in the story…

Of course the Bright Shiny being sold cheap.

1. “A-H” in Saudi Arabia – while top of an L.A. facilities list…uh okay – Rare as hell for purely logistical reasons , negative crossmatch yes, too sick to transplant – but logistical reasons? – Oh sure- 🙄 no better place to be than 15,000 miles away when a donor is available at your transplant center- GMAFB- Anyway they (sorry) slice it, Patient # 1 – his actual condition unclear at the time he was intentionally removed from the list – sent home – AND told he was still on the list – Never gets a liver and DIES.

TRhen there’s

2. The Legitimate 2nd Up on the list...didn’t get the liver either…and …what? Any follow up on that? And tho they report – that it was the Saudi who died – not all that clear in the LAT piece – Just What became of this patient #2?

And then there’s the real story, lost in the shuffle –

3. Patient Number 3 – whomever/wherever they were on the list prior to a BROKERED Sale..gets the liver…

And the coterie of still unnamed co-conspirators

Not a word in the LAT story about the Global ring run out of New York and Tel Aviv….

marisacat - 7 January 2010

And the poor sod who was lied to by his doctor and died… off the list thinkng he was on it.

Aside from everything else….

marisacat - 7 January 2010

well the LAT imo hardly reports on Villaraigosa… geesh. Right there… a living breathing story. Da Mayor.

The paper has fallen apart over the past few years. Such as it ever was………………….

BooHoo, you didn’t miss this latest revelation did you:

Israel Admits Harvesting Organs From Dead Bodies Without Permission


Makes sense:

Rather than talking about the rise of anti-Semitism, we better discuss the growth of Jewish institutional crime.


BooHooHooMan - 7 January 2010

The LAT has updated the clusterfuck –
2 Saudi Patients! Other Hospital Employees!
Pathology reports falsified! 😯 No kidding! 😯
St Vincents says The Surgeon was a Rogue!
Dr. Oswald acted alone!

Mums the word on …..”others”
But Hey-
Patient # 52 on the MATCH List was a Winner!

The transplanted organ was actually intended for a different Saudi Arabian man in the St. Vincent program, but that patient was in his home country at the time the liver became available.

Instead of advising national transplant authorities that the intended patient was unavailable for surgery,…

Oh stop that line of inquiry cold! GMAFB. Any idea how many people are involved in this several hundred billion dollar a year business? And for skeptics of such a figure, don’t think of it stricly as surgical intervention, as the medical regimen generates coin pre-list/on-list/post-list , too..(Even morsoe for end stage maintenance measures such as dialysis for when compared to the cost recovery of renal transplantation. – 2 to 3 years— not bad for such macabre accounting considering graft survival rates at 10 years average between 75-80%…

Anyways, Back to the story of Dr. Lee Harvey Oswald on the Biography Channel..

and therefore allowing the liver to be offered to other patients higher up on the list, Lopez approved acceptance of the liver and its transplantation into the St. Vincent patient who was 52nd on the match list, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

“It is criminal to lie about who got the liver,” said Consuelo Woodhead, an assistant U.S. attorney in Los Angeles who is handling the case.

Though the indictment described three co-conspirators in the scheme — all staff members of the liver program — only Lopez was charged.

“The other conspirators acted at Lopez’s direction,” Woodhead said. “He was the architect of the coverup.”

The eight-count indictment accuses Lopez of conspiracy, concealment of material fact and falsification of records.

Lopez’s attorney, James T. Duff, said his client did nothing wrong.

“Dr. Lopez did not falsify any records,” Duff said, adding that Lopez provided the liver in question to save the patient’s life.

“That man is living today as a result of the doctor,” Duff said. “It was a sound medical decision.”

The indictment comes more than four years after an investigation of the case by The Times, which detailed the misallocation.

The charges do not address the organ misallocation itself, but focus instead on what prosecutors say happened after the transplant.

At first, the hospital reported the name of the actual recipient to the United Network for Organ Sharing, which oversees transplantation nationwide. But later that day, Lopez directed his staff to retract that notification and report the name of the man for whom the liver had been initially offered, the indictment says.

Though the intended recipient was removed from the waiting list, Lopez continued to tell him he was still in line, according to the indictment. He died several months later.

The hospital continued to file falsified documents, including a pathology report describing the liver that was supposedly removed from the intended patient, the indictment says.

On Wednesday, authorities said they remain unlear on why Lopez misallocated the organ.

St. Vincent executives discovered the alleged coverup in 2005 and reported it to transplant authorities.

Lopez left St. Vincent’s after the hospital closed the liver transplant program in 2005. He remains a licensed physician.

In a statement, St. Vincent called Lopez a “rogue physician” who was “acting outside the scope of his duties and hospital policy.”

The hospital declined to say whether the other staff members allegedly involved in the scheme remained employed there.
