The leader we need: Mitt Romney

June 2, 2009

Possibly the “powers that were” knew in 2008 that George Soros has so contaminated the political landscape with his hatred of George Bush and all things conservative — Jesus Christ carrying a cross could not have won the Presidency. 

Here, however, is a man who CAN defeat Barack Obama — head to head, with or without a teleprompter, in an open debate on issues relevant to real-time USA …..

China’s yuan to replace US dollar

April 8, 2009

You knew when Treasury Secretary Geithner stated that he would be in favor of replacing the US dollar for another currency (the Chinese yuan), it was already in the works. 

After all, US-hater and Obama-supporter George Soros had expressed his support for moving from US currency to the yuan.

    China has also been arranging currency swaps with trading partners to bypass the U.S. dollar in trade settlements. Since mid-December, China has signed currency swap contracts worth 650 billion yuan (about 95.6 billion U.S. dollars) with six central banks in Hong Kong, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Belarus, Indonesia and Argentina.

    These swap accords allow other overseas central banks to lend yuan to local importers who want to buy Chinese goods. Since these deals bypass the U.S. dollar, they reduce exposure to exchange-rate volatility and cut transaction costs for both parties.

    Chen said these deals “expand the yuan’s use in the region and pave the way for its global acceptance.”

    The rules are also good for Chinese exporters, who have long had to bill their foreign customers mainly in U.S. dollars.

The full story is here.

Meanwhile —

…. We learned this week that Obamatrons have leaked their intent to infiltrate tea parties on April 15 to instigate disruptions (more info later). 

…. The alleged plan to attack Obama in Turkey was a hoax.

…. Obama’s Afghanistan policy is to be modeled after Clinton’s Columbia Plan (surely you didn’t expect anything original, did you?) which is just now in its final stages and appears to be ending with another broken Obama promise. 

And if you think the military have forgotten how Obama tried to shaft them on health care — guess again.  The reception in Iraq this week was not all “oohray”  — not by a long shot.   Troops don’t forget when a sitting President votes against them or insults them ….

… Oh please — so they will not meet one-on-one at the Americas’ Conference?   Two of the most self-adoring, egotistical leaders in the world?  Yeah right …. My only question is:  who will bow to whom?

Vietnam Reflections ….

March 29, 2009

First Loaica updates her blog at Vietnam Reflections (great images — with 3000 more to come!!) and then ut-Obama launches his Afghanistan policy ….

I’m no authority, but why do I get the feeling that Obama has just put his signature on the Afghan war …. and it’s starting to look a lot like Vietnam?

Interesting how he appears to be distinguishing between the Taliban (can’t we all get along?) and Al Qaeda (boooo bad guys) while isolating both from the problems IN Afghanistan AND Pakistan

And we’re supposed to trust this empty suit who says nothing without a teleprompter?

Funny how Al Qaeda has not launched an attack on anyone from Afghanistan in eons, yet it’s critical we rush in with thousands of additional troops — to maybe rescue the drug trade? 

Son of Soros got this plan from the puppetmaster, methinks.  The ole global drug legalization baron himself — George Soros

We’ve got the chemical spray to destroy the poppy fields (which will not harm other crops or people), and would in succession, destroy the Taliban and Al Qaeda PLUS allow Pakistan and Afghanistan to regain control of their countries AND their own economies.

Isn’t that what we want???

Obama Stimulates ACORN with Billions —

January 27, 2009

Several times I’ve referred to Obama’s stimulus package as a federally subsidized campaign pay-back. 

No?

Tell me, then, how ACORN is conveniently in line to garner billions of stimulating dollars?

From American Thinker:

Barack Obama has spent the last week basically paying off some campaign debts. He gave a nod to his far left base by closing Guantanamo and stopping the military tribunals (without any plan for housing the detainees or prosecuting them), he pandered to the feminists by rescinding the Mexico City rule preventing federal monies from being used to promote abortion overseas. He had most of the left on their feet cheering when he took on Rush Limbaugh.

So I suppose it’s not surprising that stuck inside his monstrosity of a “stimulus bill,” would be a multi-billion dollar gift to his friends at ACORN:

The House Democrats’ trillion dollar spending bill, approved on January 21 by the Appropriations Committee and headed to the House floor next week for a vote, could open billions of taxpayer dollars to left-wing groups like the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).  ACORN has been accused of perpetrating voter registration fraud numerous times in the last several elections; is reportedly under federal investigation; and played a key role in the irresponsible schemes that caused a financial meltdown that has cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars since last fall. 

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and other Republicans are asking a simple question: what does this have to do with job creation?  Are Congressional Democrats really going to borrow money from our children and grandchildren to give handouts to ACORN in the name of economic “stimulus?”

 

Incredibly, the Democrats’ bill makes groups like ACORN eligible for a $4.19 billion pot of money for “neighborhood stabilization activities.”  Funds for this purpose were authorized in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, signed into law in 2008.  However, these funds were limited to state and local governments.  Now House Democrats are taking the unprecedented step of making ACORN and other groups eligible for these funds:


If I didn’t see it in black and white, I wouldn’t have believed it. Here’s the relevant part from the bill:


“For a further additional amount for ‘Community Development Fund,’ $4,190,000,000, to be used for neighborhood stabilization activities related to emergency assistance for the redevelopment of abandoned and foreclosed homes as authorized under division B, title III of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (Public Law 110–289), of which—

 

“(1) not less than $3,440,000,000 shall be allocated by a competition for which eligible entities shall be States, units of general local government, and nonprofit entities or consortia of nonprofit entities[.]”  

 

“(2) up to $750,000,000 shall be awarded by competition to nonprofit entities or consortia of nonprofit entities to provide community stabilization assistance […]”


Not just ACORN would be in line to receive these funds. Other “nonprofit entities or consortia of nonprofit entities”  will be lining up with their hands out. And for what purpose? What exactly does “neighborhood stabilization” mean?


It means the federal government is about to give a huge amount of money to the very same people who helped get us in this mess in the first place. ACORN could now profit from the crisis by purchasing foreclosed homes for a song and selling them at a tidy profit – ensnaring more luckless victims in their mortgage scams. 


The chances of the Obama administration investigating the illegal political activities of this so-called “non-partisan” group are just about zero. But this is one fight the GOP cannot afford to back down from. They must not only raise a ruckus about this codicile giving ACORN and their friends billions of dollars, they must also push for a federal investigation of the activities of ACORN in previous elections for purposes of revoking their tax exempt status as a non-political entity.


But in politics, without the votes, it is very hard to get your way on anything. Further enriching Democratic allies will no doubt be the rule rather than the exception over the next 4 years.

Obama May Face Another Inquiry

January 3, 2009

From Smoking Gun:

In a letter last week to U.S. District Court Judge Victor Marrero, Hsu’s lawyer, Martin Cohen, requested a 60-day delay in the start of Hsu’s trial, scheduled to open January 12 (Cohen cited the “extraordinary level of negative publicity” generated by the recent arrest of alleged Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff). In his December 22 letter, a copy of which you’ll find below, Cohen also noted that Hsu was already “notorious for his political activities” and that it was “inevitable” that his client’s “connections” to Bill and Hillary Clinton “and other democratic notables–including perhaps the president-elect–will be introduced at trial.” Before becoming a key fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, Hsu co-hosted a 2005 California fundraiser for Obama’s political action committee and introduced the Illinois Democrat to Marc Gorenberg, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist who later joined the Obama campaign’s national finance committee. Prosecutors allege that Hsu directed his investors to donate money to specific candidates, and then reimbursed them in violation of federal campaign laws.

Innocently wondering ….. Can an investigation of George Soros be far behind?
