War Spending Masking U.S. Economic Ills

Just so you know where things are going when the bottom drops out....

"Economy shrinks as spending ebbs" by Robert Gavin, Globe Staff | October 31, 2008

The US economy contracted in the third quarter as the sharpest drop in consumer spending in nearly 30 years erased any remaining doubts that the nation is in a recession, analysts said.

The Commerce Department reported yesterday that the economy shrank at a modest 0.3 percent annual rate in the quarter ended Sept. 30, a better than expected performance that helped send stocks soaring yesterday. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 190 points to close at 9,180.69.

I love it how the business liars (and press in general) turn a negative into a positive (or vice-versa).

But analysts said strong exports and government spending, particularly on defense, masked increasing troubles in the broader economy. Consumer spending, the biggest and most important component of the economy, plunged at an annual rate of more than 3 percent, the worst decline since 1980. Businesses cut spending on equipment and software for the third consecutive quarter, while residential construction plunged nearly 20 percent.

There are indications of more bad news to come. Exports, which have provided key support to the economy, are expected to decline as a global downturn hurts foreign demand, while the trillions of dollars of value lost in the brutal stock sell-off of the past month will likely result in another sharp decline in consumer spending. The result: accelerating job losses and unemployment that could hit 8 percent, a level not seen since the early 1980s, economists said.

The signs are gloomy in Massachusetts, too. Yesterday, Associated Industries of Massachusetts reported that business confidence in the state fell to its lowest level since the recession of the early 1990s. --more--"

Fed Bailing Out Credit Card Companies

"American Express will cut jobs, impose hiring freeze" by Bloomberg News | October 31, 2008

NEW YORK - American Express Co., the largest US credit card company by purchases, will slash 10 percent of its workforce to cut costs amid rising defaults as consumers squeezed by higher unemployment fail to repay their debts.

The lender will take a fourth-quarter charge of as much as $290 million for costs tied to eliminating 7,000 jobs, New York-based American Express said yesterday. The firm plans to save as much as $1.8 billion next year with the measures, which include a freeze on hiring and management raises and less spending for technology and marketing.

American Express has posted four straight quarterly profit declines and lost about half its market value this year as it set aside more for soured credit card debt. The company makes loans to consumers, exposing it to defaults fueled by more than 700,000 US job losses this year, unlike Visa Inc., which just processes payments and said yesterday that quarterly adjusted profit doubled to $448 million.

American Express used the Federal Reserve's commercial paper facility for the first time on Wednesday, joining a growing list of borrowers that have sold tens of billions of dollars of the short-term debt to the central bank as credit became more difficult to obtain.

Companies use commercial paper to finance daily expenses such as payroll and rent. The commercial paper market seized up when Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy. General Electric Co., the biggest buyer of commercial paper, and New York-based Morgan Stanley have also signed up for the program, which was announced Oct. 7. --more--"

HOUSTON - Exxon Mobil Corp., the world's largest publicly traded oil company, reported income yesterday that shattered its own record for the biggest profit from operations by a US corporation, earning $14.83 billion in the third quarter.

The previous record for US corporate profit was set in the last quarter, when Exxon earned $11.68 billion. --more--"

The AIG Honey Pot

"AIG gets $20.9b more through Fed program" by Bloomberg News | October 31, 2008

NEW YORK - American International Group, the insurer with a $122.8 billion credit line from the United States, got an additional $20.9 billion under the Federal Reserve's commercial paper program designed to unlock short-term debt markets.

Four affiliates of the insurer participated in the program, which swaps commercial paper for cash, AIG spokesman Nicholas Ashooh said. The proceeds will help refinance AIG's outstanding commercial paper and pay down AIG's original $85 billion loan from the Fed, the firm said in a regulatory filing.

So what are they doing? Selling the government bad paper (bought with taxpayer dollars), then using that $$$ to pay the taxpayer back? Why do I see shells moving in front of my eyes, readers?

"They're paying off a Fed loan with another kind of government subsidy - it's like using one credit card to pay off another," said Robert Haines, an analyst at CreditSights Inc.

Chief executive Edward Liddy said on Oct. 22 the insurer may need more than the $122.8 billion that was available to it.

AIG joined a growing list of borrowers that have sold tens of billions of dollars of the short-term debt to the central bank as credit became more difficult to obtain. --more--"

Looting Lawyers Benefiting From Bailout Bill

What was it that Shakespeare said about the lawyers?

"Economic woes mean boom time for lawyers" by Carol J. Williams, Los Angeles Times | October 31, 2008

LOS ANGELES - In addition to lawyers suing lenders, there are others providing counsel for companies that are downsizing or have been pushed into bankruptcy. Others are representing clients in fraud lawsuits against banks and Wall Street investment firms.

And there are lawyers guiding banks and others seeking a piece of the $700 billion government bailout for the financial system. The country may be slipping into recession, but it's shaping up to be boom time for lawyers.

The bailout legislation also includes new rules on executive compensation that will create even more work for lawyers, said Scott Sinder, head of Steptoe & Johnson's government affairs and public policy practice in Washington. --more--"

"Is help on the way?; $700b bailout offers no homeowner relief" by Jenifer B. McKim, Globe Staff | October 31, 2008

As the government spends billions to prop up troubled financial firms, Joyce Hodge doesn't understand why she can't get help to shave $400 off her monthly mortgage to avoid foreclosure.

The Roxbury mother of four has been calling her servicer for more than a year trying to renegotiate the $384,000 subprime loan, which carries an adjustable rate that could nearly double to more than 15 percent. She can't afford her payment, which jumped to $3,200 last year, and now she may lose her two-family home next month.

"I don't understand why [the banks] are being bailed out when they are the ones that caused a lot of the problems that some people in my situation are having," said the 44-year-old telephone operator. "What about the little people?"

The government has focused on helping struggling firms with its $700 billion rescue plan, but talk about helping distressed homeowners has been largely that - talk.

AmeriKan Kids Zonked Out on Zoloft

I don't think our children should be on ANY psychotropic drugs, folks.

How 'bout you?

"Zoloft, therapy help anxious children

CHICAGO - A popular antidepressant plus three months of psychotherapy dramatically helped children with anxiety disorders, the most common psychiatric illnesses in the young, the biggest study of its kind found.

Them and their fucking "anxiety" disorders! Makes you wonder how humanity has survived so long, huh?

The research also offers comfort to parents worried about putting their children on powerful drugs - therapy alone did a lot of good, too. Combining the drug sertraline, available as a generic and under the brand name Zoloft, with therapy worked best.

Sertraline is among antidepressants that have been linked with suicidal thoughts and behavior in children with depression. In this study, only a handful of the more than 200 children using it had suicide-related thoughts and there were no suicide attempts, said Dr. John Walkup, lead author of the government-funded research."

They just lost me right there!! I think ONE THOUGHT of suicide from a kid is one TOO MANY!!

This isn't about the health of our kids; this is about DRUG INDUSTRY PROFITS!!!

Iran is NOT Building a Nuclear Bomb

Are we clear, readers?

"Report: Iran plans nuclear expansion" by George Jahn, Associated Press | October 31, 2008

VIENNA - Iran has recently tested ways of recovering highly enriched uranium from waste reactor fuel in a covert bid to expand its nuclear program, according to an intelligence assessment made available to the Associated Press.

The intelligence, provided by a member of the 145-nation International Atomic Energy Agency, also says a report will soon be submitted to the Iranian leadership for a decision on whether to go ahead with the project.


The alleged tests loosely replicate Saddam Hussein's attempts to build the bomb nearly two decades ago. But specialists question the conclusion by those providing the intelligence that Tehran, too, is trying to reprocess the fuel to make a nuclear weapon.

They note that the spent fuel at issue is not enough to yield the approximately 65 pounds of weapons-grade material needed for a bomb. Iran's enrichment program under constant IAEA monitoring has churned out material that is less than 5 percent enriched, in line with the fuel needs of modern reactors.

Translation: They are NOT BUILDING a BOMB!!!!!!

If the information is accurate then Iran is "trying to get their nose in the tent" of reprocessing material potentially suitable for a warhead, said David Albright, whose Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security tracks suspect secret proliferators. --more--"

It was not immediately clear where the explosive device was found and why it had been taken inside the police station instead of being detonated outside. Earlier yesterday, Hamas released 17 jailed Fatah members, saying it set them free as a goodwill gesture before reconciliation talks between the rivals in Cairo on Nov. 9."

"Congo rebel leader wants direct talks with government; As violence eases, envoys dispatched to offer assistance" by Michelle Faul, Associated Press | October 31, 2008

GOMA, Congo - With a cease-fire appearing to halt most fighting, a rebel leader said yesterday that he wanted direct talks with the Congo government on ending violence in the region, and envoys from the United States and United Nations were dispatched to help set up negotiations.

Sporadic gunfire could still be heard last night in Goma, the provincial capital of eastern Congo, but the city was calm for much of the day. That was in sharp contrast to Wednesday, when tens of thousands of residents, refugees, and government soldiers fled in a chaotic torrent ahead of advancing rebels. When the sun went down, drunk soldiers pillaged and raped in Goma, killing at least nine people in their homes, according to UN Radio Okapi.

"We want peace for people in the region," rebel leader Laurent Nkunda said by telephone after halting his advance on Goma and calling a unilateral cease-fire. Nkunda also wanted to discuss his objections to a $9 billion deal that gives China access to vast mineral riches in exchange for a railway and highway.

So he is working for the U.S, isn't he?

He also wants the urgent disarmament of a Rwandan Hutu militia that he contends works with the government and preys on his minority Tutsi people. "It's not acceptable for government soldiers to be fighting alongside genociders," Nkunda said. "We want peace for people in the region."

Nkunda launched a low-level rebellion three years ago contending that Congo's transition to democracy had excluded the Tutsi. Despite agreeing in January to a UN-brokered cease-fire, he resumed fighting in August. He alleges the Congolese government has not protected ethnic Tutsis from the Rwandan Hutu militia that escaped to Congo after helping slaughter half a million Rwandan Tutsis in 1994's genocide.

Congo has charged Nkunda himself with involvement in war crimes, and Human Rights Watch says it has documented summary executions, torture, and rape committed by soldiers under Nkunda's command in 2002 and 2004. Rights groups have also criticized government forces for atrocities and widespread looting in Congo.

Nkunda's rebellion has threatened to reignite the back-to-back wars that roiled Congo from 1996 to 2002, drawing in eight African nations. President Joseph Kabila, elected in 2006 in the first elections in 40 years, has struggled ever since to contain the bloody insurgency in the east.

The United Nations has only 6,000 of its 17,000-strong Congo peacekeepers in the east because of unrest in other provinces. It says the force is badly overstretched and urgently needs reinforcement, but European nations were sharply divided yesterday over whether to send troops to Congo.

The situation in Goma was calm yesterday. Government soldiers in trucks and UN peacekeepers in armored cars patrolled the city. Almost all shops were shuttered and schools stayed closed, but people thronged the streets, discussing the crisis and buying vegetables by the road. --more--"

"Pakistan Says It Killed 80 Militants in Attack on Islamic School" by Salman Masood/New York Times October 31, 2006

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Oct. 30 -- The Pakistani military said Monday that it had destroyed a religious school in the Bajaur tribal area, near the border with Afghanistan, killing as many as 80 people it described as militants. Helicopter gunships fired missiles into the Islamic school, or madrassa, in the village of Chingai near the town of Khar, military officials said.

Some local residents and opposition politicians said there were children in the school, and contended that American planes had participated in the attack. General Sultan said that no children or women had been in the madrassa and that no American or NATO troops had been involved.

[Yes, the far-removed general would know more than the witnesses on the ground!

And what do they say?]

Local television channels showed images of the site, where thousands of people had gathered around the rubble of the madrassa. Armed men were seen standing amid the bodies. Residents of the nearby village of Damadola, reached by telephone, said they were awakened Monday at about 5 a.m. by two explosions, and when they went to look, it appeared that the school had been destroyed.

Haron Rashid, a lawmaker from Jamaat-e-Islami who lives half a mile from the school, said:

"[The two explosions] were so powerful that it shook the earth and rattled our doors and windows."

Three Pakistani Army helicopters gunships appeared 15 minutes later, firing rockets the residents said. One man, who identified himself as Akhunzada, said local residents had seen planes flying over the area in recent days... Pakistani officials dismissed any suggestions that the United States was behind the attack.

[Pakistani helicopter gunships "appeared 15 minutes" AFTER the madrassa was flattened?

What's WRONG with the government's story?]

Opposition Islamist parties were quick to denounce the attack and blame America.

Qazi Hussain Ahmed, the leader of Jamaat-e-Islami, contended that innocent children had been killed and the Pakistani Army was covering up for an American attack at a news briefing:

"Why have they owned this very shameful act of killing the innocent people? This area is not an area where there can be any training camp. This is actually tantamount to a declaration of war on Pakistan."

Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, an alliance of opposition parties, called for nationwide protests on Tuesday.

Sira ul-Haq, a cabinet minister from the nearby North-West Frontier Province, condemned the attack and said he would resign from the government in protest:

"The government has launched an attack during the night, which is against Islam and the traditions of the area. This was an unprovoked attack on a madrassa."

[And we call THEM COWARDS?

Bombing at 5 a.m. "
during the night, which is against Islam and the traditions of the area."

But we are not DISRESPECTING ISLAM or anything.

We're bringing FREEDOM!]

In an airstrike last January in Damadola by an American Predator drone, a pilotless aircraft... operated by the Central Intelligence Agency in an effort to capture Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al Qaeda's second in command... local officials said the attack killed 18 civilians, causing nationwide outrage and galvanizing tribes in the region in their opposition to the government in Islamabad.

Yesterday's airstrikes... came as tribal elders in Bajaur were beginning talks with pro-Taliban militants... in an effort supported by the government to stem cross-border attacks in Afghanistan. Similar overtures in North Waziristan led to an agreement recently with pro-Taliban groups there.

Mohammed Sadiq, a local lawmaker: "This attack is very strange, as we were told Sunday that the peace agreement would be signed."

The strikes on Monday happened two days after thousands of tribesman protested in Bajaur, which borders the restive Afghan province of Kunar, against the United States and its Pakistani supporters.

[And there is
your reason for annihilating innocent and lovely people who NEVER DID ANYTHING TO US!]

"Pakistan cites US intelligence in air raid: Officials say data on Al-Qaeda led to school attack" by Pamela Constable and Kamran Khan/Washington Post October 31, 2006

WASHINGTON -- A missile strike that killed close to 80 people at an Islamic school in Pakistan early yesterday was launched because of US intelligence reports that senior Al Qaeda figures were hiding there, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The strike generated angry protests by religious and tribal leaders, who accused the government of doing Washington's bidding at the cost of Pakistani lives.

The county's major Islamic party charged that US military planes carried out the attack, which demolished the school, located near the border with Afghanistan.

Pakistani and US military officials denied that, saying the raid was the work of Pakistani helicopter gunships and forces, though US intelligence had prompted it.

[Yeah, and the Pakistani helicopters arrived about 15 minutes too late!

I KNOW whose word I am taking, and it's not the words of a lying cadre of generals!]

"The attack, in the Bajaur tribal district near the village of Khar, caused the highest number of deaths... in Pakistan since 2001, when Pakistan's president, General Pervez Musharraf, agreed to side with the United States to help overthrow the Taliban government in Afghanistan.

The raid on the Islamic studies school, known as a madrassa, seemed to represent an abrupt shift from the Musharraf government's recent policy of seeking peaceful negotiations with extremists in the border regions.

In the past several months, two peace deals were signed in the tribal areas of North and South Waziristan after sustained attacks there by the Pakistani military drew strong local opposition and caused heavy casualties on both sides. A third such agreement was due to be signed in Bajaur this week, but it seemed almost certain to collapse now. Yesterday's events are bound to compound the problems for Musharraf.

[I'd say! Putting his rule and HIS LIFE at stake!]

Maulana Fazlur Rehman Khan, who heads one of the two major religious parties in parliament:

"What a stupid operation, just one day before an accord between the local Taliban and government. It has killed the entire spirit and the peaceful atmosphere in the tribal areas."

[Probably the point of it all!]

Protesters who turned out in many towns yesterday pledged to return to the streets today. A similar strike occurred in January, when US missiles devastated a nearby compound that authorities believe Zawahiri was visiting. Officials initially denbied, then acknowledged. reports that a US drone had carried out the strike, which killed 18 people. The raid set off protests across Pakistan and forced the Musharraf government to publicly condemn the action.

[But we are not initially denying, then acknowledging THIS AIR STRIKE!


At a mass funeral for [an alleged al-Qaeda leader and followers] yesterday, news agiencies reported, thousands of armed men shouted, "Down with Musharraf! Down with Bush!" Some religious politicians from the area rejected the official version of events, saying it bore similarities to the January attack.

Sahibzada Haroon-ur Rashid, the local member of parliament from the Jamaat-e-Islami party:

"Exactly like Damadola, there was a big flare before a missile hit the madrassa, with a huge bang. Several minutes later, Pakistan Army gunship helicopters appeared on the horizon firing aimlessly."

Rashid resigned from parliament in protest yesterday, as did another senior leader of the religious political alliance that controls North-West Frontier Province, near Afghanistan. Until now, religious parties had maintained an uneasy alliance with Musharraf, and he often deferred to their demands."

[Gee, Americans really put you in a pickle up there, huh, Mushy?

Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, we wasted another 55 "Taliban." Whatever!

If you read the pieces through it all makes sense as to why this happened.

Damn Uppity Frontier Tribesman asserting their independence.

Bottom line: WE BOMBED A SCHOOL like a BUNCH of TERRORISTS!!!]

Marching Lock-Step Into Afghanistan

The reason it hasn't been a campaign issue, MSM press, is because YOU WON'T MAKE IT ONE!! Also because there is NO DIFFERENCE between the two candidates when it comes to MORE WAR!


"Afghan policy is taking a back seat on the trail; Some officials push for talks with Taliban" by Bryan Bender and Michael Kranish, Globe Staff | October 31, 2008

WASHINGTON - One of the toughest decisions facing the next president is getting little attention on the campaign trail: whether to negotiate with the resurgent Taliban, the radical Afghan movement that was toppled in the US invasion in 2001 but is now waging an increasingly deadly insurgency.

While Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain both call for sending thousands of more US troops to Afghanistan to turn around a war that is widely viewed as going poorly, neither has fully discussed recent suggestions from top US military officials about holding reconciliation talks with some Taliban followers.

Obama, meanwhile, recently told Time magazine that the idea of talking with some Taliban members "should be explored." In speeches this week, both candidates talked in generalities about Afghanistan, calling for more US troops in the region."

McCain went on to say that Obama opposed the surge of troops that is "bringing us victory in Iraq and will bring us victory in Afghanistan." While Obama did oppose the Iraq surge, he has called for more than 10,000 additional troops to be sent to Afghanistan, while McCain has suggested sending 15,000. The Bush administration plans to send an additional 4,000 troops early next year to aid the estimated 32,000 US troops now in the country. This week, however, US commanders called for a total increase of 20,000 troops to help improve security. --more--"

First I've seen of that in the AmeriKan MSM!!

Notice EVERYONE is talking PEACE -- EXCEPT for the U.S.!!

Oh, one more reminder:

"The U.S. government was well aware of the Taliban's reactionary program, yet it chose to back their rise to power in the mid-1990s. The creation of the Taliban was "actively encouraged by the ISI and the CIA," according to Selig Harrison, an expert on U.S. relations with Asia. "The United States encouraged Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to support the Taliban, certainly right up to their advance on Kabul," adds respected journalist Ahmed Rashid. When the Taliban took power, State Department spokesperson Glyn Davies said that he saw "nothing objectionable" in the Taliban's plans to impose strict Islamic law, and Senator Hank Brown, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on the Near East and South Asia, welcomed the new regime: "The good part of what has happened is that one of the factions at last seems capable of developing a new government in Afghanistan." "The Taliban will probably develop like the Saudis. There will be Aramco [the consortium of oil companies that controlled Saudi oil], pipelines, an emir, no parliament and lots of Sharia law. We can live with that," said another U.S. diplomat in 1997."

So why did we kill so many of them, readers?

I would just like to remind you, readers, and the world that LAYING BOMBS on their HOMES and FAMILIES, the littering of DU munitions, the secret prisons, the torture, the families displaced, the lives shattered, the chemicals dumped on them, all based on a BUNCH of LIES!!!

"Suicide blast kills 5 in Afghan ministry" by Laura King, Los Angeles Times | October 31, 2008

KABUL, Afghanistan - Underscoring the deteriorating security situation in the Afghan capital, a suicide bomber managed yesterday to make his way into a heavily guarded government ministry in the city center and set off a powerful explosion. At least five other people were killed and more than a dozen people hurt.

Did they CONFIRM that "suicider" like they need to CONFIRM U.S. AIR MURDER?

No questions about the "suicider," 'eh?

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

So claims the lying, Muslim-hating, agenda-pushing, war-promoting, enemy-creating, Zionist AmeriKan MSM!

Of course, how do the TALIBAN BENEFIT from this when they are TALKING PEACE, folks? And WHO DOES BENEFIT, readers?

The scene at the Information and Culture Ministry was one of chaos after the blast, with officials shouting and police muscling bystanders away. Broken glass was sprayed onto the busy street, which is lined with shops. One side of the ministry building collapsed, and the aqua-colored front gates were bent by the force of the explosion.


Authorities said as many as two other assailants were believed to have taken part in the attack but apparently had escaped. The death toll provided by officials differed.


Witnesses and officials gave varying accounts of how the bombing unfolded. There was an exchange of gunfire at the ministry's entrance about 11 a.m., shortly before the explosion rocked its main hall, according to police. An employee of the ministry, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by militants, said security guards shot and wounded the bomber as he was entering the building, but he managed to set off his explosives.

Yup, I am smelling SOMETHING RANCID emanating from my Zionist War Daily!!!

All lies, all the time!!!!.

It was not clear how the armed attackers managed to approach the building. --more--"

Obama Opens Up the South

Everyday there are more articles confirming that Obama wins the presidency Tuesday -- in a FAIR ELECTION!

Here is ONE MORE NAIL in McCain's coffin!

"South may be shifting in Democrats' direction; Party sees its best chance to alter the electoral map" by Susan Milligan, Globe Staff | October 31, 2008

HARRISONBURG, Va. - The racial divides that have buttressed Republican power in the South for decades appear to be crumbling in this year's elections, loosening the GOP's firm grip on the region, political analysts and independent pollsters say.

The South is still culturally conservative, and the deep South in particular is still challenging territory for Democrats, political specialists say. But demographic changes - including a migration of voters from other regions, as well as an increase in education and racial tolerance among some younger residents - have given Barack Obama and other Democrats an opening this year and are likely to change the electoral map in future elections, they said.

And what have I been saying day-after-day on this blog?

Also see: Debunking the "America is Racist" Myth Promoted by AmeriKan MSM

"There's definitely a shift going on," especially in states with larger cities, said Harry L. Wilson, director of the Center for Community Research at Roanoke College in Virginia. "If the Democrats are going to win these states back, this is the year to do it. I'm not saying a Republican couldn't win [Southern battlegrounds] back in 2012 or 2016, but they won't be able to take it for granted the way they have in the past."

The "Southern strategy," created by Richard Nixon's campaign in 1968, pitted white conservative voters against African-Americans, who had won landmark protections under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Once solid Democratic territory, the South became increasingly GOP-dominated, and except for Southern-born candidates such as Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, the region has remained nearly impenetrable for Democratic presidential nominees. President Bush swept the South from Texas to Virginia in both 2000 and 2004.

But Obama, aided by a massive voter registration campaign and population shifts in the region, appears poised to break that Republican stranglehold. The Illinois senator is ahead substantially in polls against GOP nominee John McCain in Virginia, and is narrowly leading in North Carolina and Florida. Obama aides believe Missouri and even Georgia could be competitive Tuesday, especially if black voters and young people turn out in high numbers to make him the nation's first African-American president.

Democratic US Senate candidates, too, are threatening GOP incumbents in North Carolina and Kentucky, as the party seeks a potentially filibuster-proof majority of 60 seats, and Democrats see opportunities to pick up House seats in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia and expand their majority.

"This is a realigning election," said John Zogby, an independent pollster. The rise of a "creative class" in Southern cities, along with more relaxed attitudes toward race among younger voters south of the Mason-Dixon line, has dramatically improved the prospects for Democrats in the region, he said.

Most of the change is pure demographics: Cities such as Atlanta and Charlotte, N.C., have attracted new residents from all over the country, and in many ways feel northern, Wilson said. The high-tech industry around Raleigh, N.C., has drawn highly educated people who tend to have more open-minded attitudes toward race, he said.

In North Carolina, Democratic challenger Kay Hagan, a state senator, has moved into the lead in polls over Republican incumbent Elizabeth Dole, wife of the 1996 Republican presidential nominee. This week, there has been a huge uproar over a Dole TV ad that accuses Hagan, a Sunday school teacher, of taking "godless money" when she secretly attended a September fund-raiser in Boston hosted by an advisory board member of the Godless Americans Political Action Committee.

A large influx of Democratic-leaning voters has moved into Northern Virginia, especially in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Democrats expect to pick up the House seat being vacated by moderate GOP Representative Tom Davis in Northern Virginia, and Democrat Mark Warner, the former governor, is heavily favored to win the open US Senate seat.

And in Florida, the Latino population is changing in ways that boost Democratic hopes. Cuban-Americans, who tend to vote Republican, are diminishing in dominance in the Latino population, while the ranks of Puerto Ricans from both the island itself and New York City are growing. The newer Latino voters - who are already citizens and eligible to vote - are more sympathetic to Democrats, said Richard Johnston, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania and coauthor of "The End of Southern Exceptionalism," a book about Southern politics.

Democrats stand to make substantial gains in the region in part because of an enormous black-voter turnout expected for Obama, and in part because of a poor environment for Republicans overall because of the flailing economy, Johnston said. Attitudes, too, have changed in the region, especially among younger voters more comfortable with the idea of a black president, residents and analysts said.

That's because the RACIST CHARGE against the American people is a CANARD!!!

Election Poll Update

AP Prepares Election Theft Narrative

Even in the heart of Virginia's conservative Shenandoah Valley, Obama this week drew a crowd of 8,000 people - plus another 12,000 who waited outside for hours but couldn't squeeze into the James Madison University Convocation Center in Harrisonburg. And while several voters there acknowledged that some of their fellow Virginians still would not vote for a black candidate, they said opinions were changing with the advent of new media and immigrant populations.

Ken Weaver, 77 and retired, said he could not have imagined even a decade ago that an African-American candidate could compete in his home state. "It means that we're in a new age of enlightenment," said Weaver, who said he has lived in the Shenandoah region for 60 years. "It's a time when we've realized that the old biases have to go."

Now if only the divisive, Zionist-controlled, agenda-pushing MSM would catch up.

This election is "the beginning of the end" of GOP dominance in Virginia, said Barbara Luck, a 57-year-old accountant from Harrisonburg. "This county has been a solid Republican county for as long as I remember," Luck said, marveling at the overflow crowd. But "these young people, they don't see race the way my parents did," she said.

Republicans believe McCain is still strong in the South. Tennessee and Arkansas - swing states during the Clinton era - are considered safe for McCain this year.

You guys are grasping at shit now!!

But the McCain campaign is less optimistic about holding on to Virginia, a state that has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1968.

"The one big thing that's happened this year is the historic nature of Senator Obama's candidacy. You'll have the highest African-American turnout ever and he'll get all their votes," said Charlie Black, a senior McCain strategist and South Carolina native.

Demographics are also working against the GOP in the region, he added. "The one thing you see is that North Carolina has become a swing state . . . The state's changed a lot. There's over one million people that have moved there since 2000." --more--"

C'mon, even McCain's campaign advisers know it is over!!!!

Early Voting Favors Obama

I'll be voting on election day, readers.

"Just enough time for a few more digs; Economy drives rhetoric in hectic race to the end" by Ben Feller and David Espo, Associated Press | October 31, 2008

Like the opinion polls, the early ballot count favored Obama. Officials in Iowa, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada as well as North Carolina said more Democrats than Republicans had cast ballots, in some cases by large margins.

McCain's first stop of the day was in chilly Defiance, Ohio, where he pointed to Exxon Mobil's announcement of a $14.83 billion profit in the third quarter, a record, and said Obama had voted for legislation that included millions in tax breaks for oil companies. --more--"

Chilly Ohio? What, no GLOBAL WARMING, MSM?

As for McCain's attack on Obama re: the oil companies, the guy is REALLY FLAILING ABOUT as his campaign sinks!!

Where Your Campaign Contribution Goes

I don't give $$$ to political campaigns anymore. The last donations I made were to Ron Paul's campaign. I never respond to the Repuglican fliers, and when the Democrats call on the phone, I just hang up.

"Mass. delegation sends $3.1m in donations to aid other candidates; Move part of bid to bolster majority in Congress" by Jenny Paul, Globe Correspondent | October 31, 2008

WASHINGTON - Members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation, facing little opposition in their own races, handed over more than $3.1 million of the funds they raised to support other Democrats across the nation, according to the campaigns.

The giving is part of a push by the Democratic leadership to pick up seats in swing districts and bolster the party's majority in the House of Representatives during a federal election that analysts estimate will cost $5.3 billion, making it the most expensive election in US history.

Massachusetts incumbents and other high-ranking Democrats whose seats are considered "safe" by the party are expected to raise money and pass it along to Democrats in tight races. With a slew of GOP retirements and a bad economy that is favoring Democratic contenders, political analysts believe Democrats can add 25 to 30 seats to the majority they achieved after the 2006 midterm elections.

Donating to other Democrats can help the givers rise through the ranks of congressional leadership and retain positions they already hold, said Massie Ritsch, spokesman for the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

"Anytime a politician gives to another politician, it's a way for the giver to build good will with that candidate and potentially get the favor repaid down the line," Ritsch said. But campaign finance specialists say the practice can mislead the original donors, who often aren't aware that their money will be used to help other candidates.

That's what politicians do best!! MISLEAD PEOPLE!

"This isn't where the contributors have intended the money to go," said Craig Holman, campaign finance lobbyist for Public Citizen, a government watchdog group. "If you give money to support one particular candidate in Massachusetts because you like that candidate, who knows where that money is going and supporting?"

Massachusetts congressmen said the contributions are key to enlarging their party's majority and allowing Democrats to set the agenda on issues that matter to their constituents, including healthcare, education, and job creation.

"We're a political family," said Representative Edward J. Markey, Democrat of Malden. "We have to help those who can strengthen our party's ability to advance a progressive agenda, and that's how I view the contributions that I make."

Check out how much $$$ these guys are tossing around:

The Massachusetts delegation has contributed more than $426,000 to individual candidates, including Carol Shea-Porter, a freshman New Hampshire representative, and Jim Himes, a Connecticut Democrat vying for the seat of embattled incumbent Christopher Shays.

See: Connecticut's Shays Rebellion

Democrap, Repuglican, what's the diff? Vote THIRD PARTY, America!!!!

But the bulk of the money - more than $2.6 million - has gone to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, a national fund-raising committee that helps at-risk candidates. Federal law prohibits members' campaign committees from giving more than $4,600 per election cycle directly to other candidates, but members can make unlimited contributions to the Democratic and Republican congressional campaign committees. The party committees use the money to help candidates in tough races.

"I give to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as much money as I can because I think they're in the best position to make the strategic decisions to defeat as many Republicans as possible," Markey said.

Markey contributed $349,625 to the committee during this cycle, topped only by the $650,000 contribution from Barney Frank, a Newton Democrat and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. Frank has given about $925,000 to Democratic candidates and organizations, almost as much as the $985,000 he has spent on his campaign.

No thought of RETURNING that money?

No, that never penetrates the looting legislators minds, does it?

Current practice calls for Frank, as a committee chairman, to contribute at least $500,000 to other candidates. Representative Richard Neal, Democrat of Springfield, and Representative James P. McGovern, Democrat of Worcester, are expected to contribute $250,000 each. Neal has given $300,000 during this election cycle, while McGovern donated an extra $10,000, according to campaign finance filings and data provided by the campaigns. --more--"

Criminal State Senator Lies to Colleagues

Also type 'Wilkerson" into my blog search and see what comes up, readers.

"Wilkerson won't resign, despite Senate's request

by Matt Viser, Globe Staff

The usually collegial state Senate today shunned one of its own, unanimously passing an extraordinary resolution asking Democratic Senator Dianne Wilkerson to resign immediately following the allegations that she accepted eight bribes worth $23,500 in an FBI undercover operation.

She promptly declined, with her campaign issuing a statement tonight indicating that she has no intention of resigning and will defiantly continue her write-in campaign to save a seat she has held for 15 years. Wilkerson later released a statement calling requests for her to resign ‘‘unreasonable.’’

The woman should be tarred, feathered, and tossed into the harbor!

‘‘Surely the members of the state Senate could not have believed that such a monumental decision would be made within a few hours,’’ she said. ‘‘A decision to leave this district without representation, even for 60 days, is one that cannot and should not be made in a matter of hours. Rest assured I am committed to do what is in the best interest of the residents of this district.’’

The arrogance and the lying become too much at a certain point, don't they? Thing is, this is true of all of them, Repug or Democrap. Type "Ted Stevens" into my blog search and see what comes up, readers.

In the early afternoon, angry members of the Senate stripped Wilkerson of her committee chairmanship, removed her from all of her committee assignments, and began the first steps required to expel her from the chamber.

Before the vote, Wilkerson sent a diplomatic letter to Senate President Therese Murray saying, ‘‘I will respect whatever decision you make.’’ ‘‘I apologize to you and the members for being drawn into the madness that has become my life,’’ Wilkerson wrote in the one-page letter on her Senate stationery. --more--"

Once again, it is ALL ABOUT HER!!



"Wilkerson terminates campaign, resists calls to resign

State Senator Dianne Wilkerson vowed this afternoon to terminate a write-in campaign for the seat she has held for 15 years, but she resisted calls to resign following her arrest in an FBI corruption probe on bribery charges.

Well, as they say out here: the proof is in the pudding!

Appearing at a Roxbury church with a half dozen of the city's leading black clergy, Wilkerson gave a brief statement and took no questions from reporters. Calls for Wilkerson's resignation have been mounting since she was arrested in an FBI corruption probe on Tuesday and accused of taking $23,500 in bribes.

The Liquor License Looters

Yup, but we can't loose ourselves of the state income tax because of the vital services it provides!!! You know, I truly get tired of typing the same damn things day after day about this state and its wasting of taxpayer dollars!!

"License Board's alleged dealings stirring anger; Many liquor applicants say connections required" by Donovan Slack, Globe Staff | October 31, 2008

The Licensing Board's three plum seats, which by statute are filled by gubernatorial appointment, are occupied by the politically well connected, carry high salaries, and require a light work schedule.

And YOU are PAYING for it, taxpayers!!!!!

Board members are paid $85,000 per year for virtually part-time hours. The board chairman is paid $100,000 per year, and he sets his own hours.

What a DEAL, huh, taxpayers?

Yup, we gotta PRESERVE this SERVICE by keeping the INCOME TAX!!

I'll tell you what: I'll SOLVE the PROBLEM for GOOD!! I say BRING BACK PROHIBITION!!!! If it is GOOD ENOUGH for POT, then it is GOOD ENOUGH for BOOZE!!!

While the board chairman must supervise the day-to-day running of the board office, which has a staff of six, the only requirement for the other board members is that they be present at three public hearings each week, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings.

The board's salaries are significantly higher than last year, when the Legislature passed a bill granting them hefty pay raises.

Are you fucking kidding me?

That bill, signed into law by Patrick last year, raised their pay from $60,000 per year to a minimum of $85,000. --more--"

Meanwhile, the good guv is whacking the blind, mentally ill and schools!

Evergreen Investments Turn Brown

"Evergreen Investments faces federal, state probe

Wachovia Corp.'s Evergreen Investments unit is being investigated by federal and state regulators over investor losses on one of its short-term bond mutual funds. The Securities and Exchange Commission and Massachusetts have launched separate investigations over "alleged issues" related to the drop in the value of Evergreen Ultra Short Opportunities fund, the bank said. Wachovia shuttered the fund and guaranteed investors would suffer no additional losses after an 18 percent decline in early June. Three class-action lawsuits allege that Evergreen made misleading statements about the fund's risks and failed to accurately price its holdings, "at different points in time," according to the filing with the SEC. An Evergreen spokeswoman in Boston declined to comment (Bloomberg)."

"Everett footballer has brain surgery; Teen doing well, family reports" by Gabrielle T. Dunn, Globe Correspondent | October 31, 2008

A 14-year-old Everett High football player who collapsed at practice is doing well after undergoing surgery for a blood clot on his brain Wednesday, his father and older brother said last night.

Hantzley Audate, a freshman, was operated on for two hours for a hematoma at about 7:30 p.m., several hours after he collapsed Wednesday afternoon, said his 22-year-old brother, Reynaldi Audate. Hantzley's father, Renold, said his son remembers a tingling feeling on his left side just before he collapsed. He said Hantzley was hit on his left side four times during a practice drill. Hantzley also has a small bruise on the left side of his head, his father said.

"It's a little bruise," Renold Audate, 48, said. "It's not the kind of bruise that would suggest the kind of head injury he has suffered, but I think he got hit pretty badly."

Reynaldi said doctors predict that his brother, currently in a medically induced coma to take stress off his brain and prevent future swelling, may stay in the hospital as long as a month. Renold Audate said his son will undergo more brain surgery in three months. --more--"

"Police investigating teen's death file alcohol charges" by Milton J. Valencia, Globe Staff | October 31, 2008

Police investigating how some 20 teenagers obtained alcohol at an Oct. 17 party in Norfolk before one of them wandered into swampland and drowned have charged an 18-year-old with bringing beer from his home.

Police identified the teen as Christopher Moran of Norfolk. He was charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol and misleading a police officer furthering a criminal investigation.

Don't these cops have other "crimes" to solve? You know, like rapes, robberies, and murders?

Moran allegedly told police he brought a number of beers from his home for his personal consumption. He also allegedly gave detectives false information in an attempt to mislead them. He was arraigned in Wrentham District Court on Oct. 24, and pleaded not guilty.

Moran was arrested at his home on Oct. 23. Police disclosed his arrest only yesterday. Police gave no indication that Moran provided the alcohol for the party or that he gave any to other students. But the filing of charges against him, and the continuing investigation, show police are delving into the circle of people who were at the party before 17-year-old Taylor Meyer wandered into swampland and drowned. --more--"

Three Stories the Boston Globe Ignored


"In Zimbabwe, cholera and starvation may soon take hold" by Raymond Whitaker

As if things could not get any worse in Zimbabwe, the country has a worsening cholera epidemic.

According to the brave and scrupulously accurate Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR), the disease, caused by contaminated water, is spreading in many "high-density suburbs" (formerly segregated townships) around Harare, the capital, and in three districts of Mashonaland West, a province which saw some of the worst violence during this year's elections. There have been 27 deaths in the past month.

The ZADHR statement points out that cholera is a disease "that can be easily prevented and cured". It is normally a problem only after disasters such as earthquakes or floods, when people have no choice but to drink water contaminated by sewage or dead livestock. But according to the state-owned Herald newspaper, the state water company has run out of money to pay suppliers and engineering firms.

Once again, the PEOPLE PAY for SANCTIONS on LEADERS!!!

Zimbabwe's infrastructure and government services, such as education, were once the envy of Africa. But the creeping disaster that has overtaken the country under Robert Mugabe means up to five million people face starvation by early next year. For cholera to make an appearance is on a par with the judgement of economists that no economy has ever collapsed as rapidly and completely as Zimbabwe's, except in the midst of all-out war.


"India suspects Islamist militants in Assam bombings

GUWAHATI, India, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Indian authorities suspect Islamist groups were behind coordinated bomb blasts in the troubled state of Assam that killed 76 people and wounded more than 320, police said on Friday.

Not me: The Israeli-India Terror Shop

CUI BONO, folks?

And the fact that the Zionist-controlled, Muslim-hating, Amerikan MSM ignored it makes me even more suspicious.

Separatist movements have riddled India's remote northeast for decades, but the level of sophistication and precision of Thursday's bombings echo similar blasts across India over the past year which have been blamed on Islamist groups.


Bangladesh-based Harkat-ul-Jihad al Islami (HuJI) is the main suspect in Thursday's attack. Police say the Islamist group could have sought to avenge attacks on Muslim settlers by indigenous tribes that killed at least 47 people last month. The separatist United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) was also suspected, but police and security experts say the group may have only played a supporting or logistical roles. ULFA has denied any involvement.

Analysts say plastic explosives were used in the blast to cause maximum damage and were remotely detonated within five minutes of each other using timer devices -- hallmarks of strikes by suspected Islamist groups in India.

BULLSHIT!!! That is MOSSAD's MO!!!

Islamists are "suiciders," remember, joopress?

"HuJI has actually been fingered by Assam police as being involved in the attack, an accusation substantiated by the discovery of RDX (plastic) explosives," U.S. private intelligence firm Stratfor said in a report.

Yeah, like I'm going to believe some AmeriKan liar!

A wave of bomb attacks has hit India in recent months, killing more than 125 people. Police have blamed most of those attacks on Islamist militants, although Hindu militants have also been suspected of carrying out several attacks.


Where is that salt-shaker, readers?

I need to take a few grains after that Zionist bullshit was shoveled our way.

"Intelligence Head Says Next President Faces Volatile Era" by Joby Warrick, Washington Post | October 31, 2008

NASHVILLE, Oct. 30 -- The next U.S. president will govern in an era of increasing international instability, including a heightened risk of terrorist attacks in the near future, long-term prospects of regional conflicts and diminished U.S. dominance across the globe, the nation's top intelligence officer said Thursday.

Competition for energy, water and food will drive conflicts between nations to a degree not seen in decades, and climate change and global economic upheaval will amplify the effects, Mike McConnell, the director of national intelligence, said in a speech here.

Translation: MORE WARS COMING!

McConnell added that, besides the predictable conflicts and threats, "there is always surprise." McConnell said that the first months of a new presidency are a "period of most vulnerability," noting that major terrorist attacks occurred during the first year of the administrations of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Translation: EXPECT ONE SOON!!!!

9/11 Revisited

In the near term, the focus remains largely on al-Qaeda and its global network, which remains "very lethal" despite dramatic setbacks in Iraq and elsewhere, McConnell said. But in spite of progress against Osama bin Laden and his followers, the terrorist threat is not likely to disappear in the next 20 years.

You know, I am SICK of the DAMNABLE LIES about "Al-CIA-Duh" and the DEAD GUY, 'kay?!!!

These groups will probably be more dangerous than their predecessors, because new technology will place dangerous weapons within their grasp, he warned. "One of our greatest concerns continues to be that a terrorist group or some other dangerous group might acquire and employ biological agents or, less likely, a radiological device, to create casualties greater than September 11," McConnell said.

Something is coming down!!!

Is it going to be something like this, to be blamed on them?


Meanwhile, population growth will create instability by increasing the strain on natural resources -- not only energy but also fresh water and food supplies, he said. At the same time, large swaths of the planet will struggle to find reliable supplies of fresh water, because of urbanization and climate change.


Still think that bogus issue isn't PART of the PLAN being advanced by the agenda-pushing MSM, readers?
