The Vietnam moment

obama in the oval office at the white house

Seven years ago, Dick Cheney proclaimed: “The Taliban is out of business, permanently.” Last week, the former vice-president came close to accusing Barack Obama of lacking the guts to “do what it takes” to win the war against the very same Taliban.

Some time in the next two weeks, Mr Obama is likely to bring months of agonised deliberation to a close when he decides how many more troops to send to Afghanistan. The number, which could be as high as the 40,000 recommended by Stanley McChrystal, the general in charge, will be analysed minutely for what it can achieve on the ground in Afghanistan.

But as Mr Cheney’s contrasting observations illustrate, the more influential war is being fought politically on the ground in America. Somehow, the compulsions of US politics have brought the candidate who electrified America by promising to pull out of Iraq to a position where many of his most ardent backers fear he may be about to get America into another Vietnam.  MORE>>>>>


Confirmed: Skin cream contains fetal proteins

Company's anti-aging products built on cells harvested from aborted baby

One of Neocutis' skin products containing PSP

A pro-life organization is blasting a Switzerland-based cosmetics manufacturer whose website openly admits some of its products were developed from the tissues of an aborted baby.

Children of God for Life is a non-profit organization focused on the bioethics of embryonic tissue use in medicine and manufacturing. One of its current campaigns includes petitioning pharmaceutical companies to produce safe, effective alternatives to vaccines derived or cultivated from aborted fetal tissue.

But the organization's attention has now turned Neocutis, a company with offices in San Francisco which has developed a line of anti-aging products that include an ingredient the company has trademarked as Processed Skin Cell Protein, or PSP, developed from skin cells harvested from an abortion.

"It is absolutely deplorable that Neocutis would resort to exploiting the remains of a deliberately slaughtered baby for nothing other than pure vanity and financial gain," said Debi Vinnedge, executive director of Children of God for Life, in a statement. "There is simply no moral justification for this."

The website for Neocutis, which is privately held with estimated annual sales of in excess of $2 million, explains that its research began years ago, when scientists discovered fetal skin's unusual ability to heal without scarring. Scientists at the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland, then created a process to extract proteins from fetal cells in the attempt to obtain an optimal, naturally balanced mixture of nutrients.

The scientists then infused those nutrients into a line of cosmeceutical anti-aging products: Neocutis skin cream, Journée day cream, Lumière eye cream and Bio-Gel bio-restorative hydrogel – products Vinnedge is advising women to throw in the garbage before contacting Neocutis to voice their concerns.

"There is absolutely no reason to use aborted babies for such selfish motives," Vinnedge said. "It is anti-life, anti-woman and counter-productive, as Neocutis is about to find out!"

Obama as great as Caesar?

Rocco Landesman is President Obama's handpicked chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. Last week he gave the keynote address to the 2009 Grantmakers in the Arts Conference. Those of us concerned about the politicization of life and art in the Age of Obama will not be consoled by a reading of Landesman's speech. The speech bears examination in its entirety, but Landesman's tribute to Obama is especially worth a look:

This is the first president that actually writes his own books since Teddy Roosevelt and arguably the first to write them really well since Lincoln. If you accept the premise, and I do, that the United States is the most powerful country in the world, then Barack Obama is the most powerful writer since Julius Caesar. That has to be good for American artists.

Landesman compares Obama favorably with Julius Caesar as "a powerful writer." Landesman is not referring to Obama's skills as a writer, but rather to the power he holds by virtue of his office. Some might think that the literary comparison sells Obama short. Caesar was something of a self-promoter and propagandist in his writing.

Yet Landesman knows Obama is like Caesar, somehow -- a friend asks, is it in the transformation of a republic into an empire with a divine ruler? Perhaps if Landesman had his wits about him, he would note instead that Obama is the most powerful speaker since the other JC.

Well, so what if Landesman is a bootlicker? Landesman is also an idiot. Lincoln never wrote a book, although I believe he did compile the texts of his 1858 debates with Douglas for publication in book form. And Landesman misses a few presidential authors since Theodore Roosevelt.


Free Golf Carts, Paid for By Uncle Sam!

By: Bob Barney

Golf cart You read that headline correctly, first we had "cash for clunkers,"  now it's cash for golf carts.  the sorry fact of the matter is that our government is actually giving more money to buy a golf cart than it did for consumers to buy brand-new cars in their "cash for clunkers," program this past summer. Car buyers had to turn in an old car to get a $4500 stimulus credit in order to buy a brand-new "approved" car, whereas those wanting to buy golf carts, get up to a $5300 stimulus credit for buying Uncle Sam calls "Street legal electric vehicles." Similar to the Cash For Clunkers Program, the US government is giving a 2009 tax credit of $5300.00 for a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) aka "green" car. If you buy the golf cart smart, you could own it for practically nothing.

The $838 billion economic stimulus bill that passed the Senate back in February, contained $300 million for the government to purchase a fleet of "green" cars. The cash could also be used to purchase "neighborhood electric vehicles".

A Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) is a battery electric vehicle falling under United States Department of Transportation classification for low-speed vehicles. The NEV operates by plugging into a standard outlet at home. By using solar or wind power to generate the electricity for these vehicles, they have the potential to run using no fossil fuel.  One can only wonder how many unemployed workers, or nearly bankrupt homeowners can afford these new NEV vehicles. That's the stimulus package for you!

The top speed of these electric cars is only about 25 mph, and are solely intended for golf cart use, or minor road traffic. This is clearly a loophole provided by some politician, on the take from some special interest group; in this case the golf cart industry. This is the type of nonsense we get when we allow Uncle Sam to run our economy. God help us all if we are stupid enough to allow them to run our health care system.

The Wall Street Journal says, "In South Carolina, sales of these carts have been soaring as dealerships alert customers to Uncle Sam’s giveaway. “The Golf Cart Man” in the Villages of Lady Lake, Florida is running a banner online ad that declares: “GET A FREE GOLF CART. Or make $2,000 doing absolutely nothing!”

Stand in line. These electric cars are going fast.

See the video Get a 2009 Tax Credit for Neighborhood Electric Vehicles for a quick look at these neat little "green" cars.


Hundreds come to benefit for woman with liver transplant

PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE:

About 400 people came to help out at a benefit for Sandy Givens at the Gold Crown Lanes in Fort Morgan on Saturday.

Givens is trying to keep a transplanted liver going, but it is very expensive, she said.The transplant itself cost more than $200,000, and the treatments she receives to keep her body from rejecting the liver come to $13,000 apiece, Givens said.The whole journey began last year, when she thought she was having a gall bladder attack, but ended up at University Hospital in Denver for tests to see what was happening, she said.

Physicians tried using medications to help her, but after a lung collapsed it was necessary to sign her up for a liver transplant, Givens said.  MORE>>>>>>

A Christian minister who has spent time in jail because of a state "hate crimes" law is warning that the federal legislation, now pending on President Obama's desk, is "one of the most dangerous pieces of federal legislation in the history of our nation."

The comment comes from Michael Marcavage of Repent America. He was among a group that became known as the "Philadelphia 11" that made national headlines in 2004.

'The Return of the Great Depression'

Eighty years ago this Thursday, the Great depression began. While the great stock market crash of 1929 actually began on Oct. 24, it was the fourth day of the crash, Oct. 29, 1929, now known as Black Tuesday, that confirmed the severity of the four-day decline and alerted the world to the fact that not all was well with the U.S. economy. Those who appreciate historical rhythm will probably be aware that the most intense part of the subsequent depression was the four years from 1930 through 1933 that Milton Friedman described as the Great Contraction.

Although 1929 marked the beginning of the Great Depression, it is important to understand that very few people, let alone politicians or economists, recognized at the time that what they were experiencing was the Great Depression. People did not greet friends in the street and ask how they were surviving the Great Depression. In fact, it was not until 1931 that people gradually began to become aware that what was taking place was a larger scale economic event than the Panic of 1921 or other previous depressions. As late as December 1930, Herbert Hoover was insisting that "the fundamental strength of the economy is unimpaired," a quote that should strike fear into the hearts of everyone who remembers John McCain declaring "the fundamentals of the American economy are strong" before the 2008 election. It was not until 1934, when Lionel Robbins wrote a book titled "The Great Depression," that what was clearly a worldwide economic depression began to transform into the Great Depression.

When one browses the excellent News from 1930 blog, it is striking to see some of the same baseless optimism that presently pervades the financial media. Consider the similarities in these three pairs of statements each separated by 79 years:

Reserve bank areas forecast new year. Leaders in banking and industry throughout the country maintain an optimistic attitude toward the prospects for 1930.

– Jan. 1, 1930

Bernanke sees U.S. recovery beginning in 2010. Bernanke told the U.S. Congress in January that the Fed believes there is a reasonable prospect the recession that took hold in December 2007 will end this year and that 2010 will be a year of recovery.

– March 16, 2009

Col. L. Ayres of Cleveland Trust sees almost certain economic improvement from July to August and September; based on historical patterns and comparisons to earlier depressions (1907-08, 1920-21). However, recovery does "not promise to be emphatic" …

– Aug. 15, 1930

A panel of 45 U.S. economists expects a "modest" economic rebound to begin in the second half of 2009, picking up steam in 2010.

– May 27, 2009

The worst is over without a doubt.

– June 1930, James J. Davis, secretary of labor

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said signs of economic recovery are "stronger" and have appeared "sooner" than expected …

Creigh Deeds (Virginia gov. candidate)A political analyst says national Democrats and the White House are trying to blame President Obama's waning popularity in Virginia on the campaign of the Democratic candidate running for governor in the Old Dominion State.


National Democrats fear that the November 3 gubernatorial election in Virginia has fallen from their grasp, and they are starting to blame their candidate Creigh Deeds, saying he has run a poor campaign and should have coordinated better with the White House.

First Daughters Not Vaccinated Against H1N1

President Obama's school age daughters have not been vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus.  White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says the vaccine is not available to them based on their risk. 

The  Centers for Disease Control recommend that children ages 6 months through 18 years of age receive a vaccination against the H1N1 flu virus.  At this time only children with chronic medical conditions are receiving the vaccination because their immune system is not strong enough to fight off the strain.  The CDC also says a regular seasonal flu shot does not protect against the virus.


Secret Service denies access to White House visitor logs

Despite the Obama administration's recent legal settlement to begin releasing White House visitor logs later this year, it has denied a different public interest group's recent request for those same records in the meantime. 

In denying a request by watchdog group Judicial Watch, the U.S. Secret Service, through the Department of Homeland Security, said that White House visitor logs fall under the Presidential Records Act and are not subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act because they do not originate with a federal agency.

Last month, the Obama administration announced its plan to voluntarily publish White House visitor logs on its Web site beginning Dec. 31 in response to lawsuits for visitor logs brought by another government watchdog group. The records that were the subject of Judicial Watch's request here -- from Jan. 20, 2009 through Sept. 15, 2009 -- will remain largely private.

Indians go on 'gold-buying blitz'

INDIANS spent nearly $US2 billion ($2.15 billion) buying gold last week during Hindu festivities, an increase compared with 2008 despite record prices, the World Gold Council says.
The World Gold Council (WGC) said gold sales rose 5.7 per cent to 56 tonnes from a year earlier in the week of October 12-19, which is considered the most auspicious period to buy gold according to Indian tradition.

Gold prices in India had hit a record high of over 16,000 rupees ($370) per ten grams, but have since fallen slightly.

India is the world's biggest consumer of gold, importing between 700 and 800 tonnes of the metal every year or 20 per cent of global demand.

"The festive season was very positive. This increased demand can be attributed to consumers' belief that gold is the only safe investment in the current global scenario," said Ajay Mitra, the WGC's managing director in India.

"The current trend will continue for the rest of the year," he said.

Gold is of cultural and religious significance for Indians, considered an auspicious metal and a visible sign of wealth and prosperity.

In value terms, Indians bought gold worth 89 billion rupees ($2.08 billion) in the Diwali week last week, WGC data showed.

The World Gold Council, involved in boosting demand for gold, is funded by the world's top gold mining companies.

Smart Choices food labels halted on FDA warning

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An industry-funded food labeling program was halted on Friday just days after U.S. officials warned they were investigating if nutrition claims on the front of packages were misleading.

The Smart Choices Program said it would "voluntarily postpone active operations and not encourage wider use of the logo at this time by either new or currently enrolled companies."

Consumer advocates and nutritionists have complained that some sugary cereals and high-salt foods display a "Smart Choices" checkmark on their packages to promote the products as healthy.  MORE>>>>>>


'3 in 10 Americans believe Obama foreigner'

Three in 10 people in the United States believe President Barack Obama is a foreigner, according to a new poll from an international leader in market research who asked residents about their beliefs regarding the president's birth place.

The survey was done by Angus Reid Global Monitor, a division of Vision Critical Group, which leverages "the world's most advanced online research technology

for interactive surveys, custom panels, private communities and virtual retail environments."

The results of the survey, released today, said 70 percent of the respondents believe Obama was born in the U.S., "while 30 percent do not."

"While only 13 percent of Democratic Party supporters believe Obama was not born in the U.S., the proportion rises to 25 percent among Independents and 51 percent among Republican Party backers," the report said.

The issue is significant because while Obama secured a majority of the Electoral College votes in November 2008 to be installed as president, Article II of the U.S. Constitution establishes "that only 'natural born' American citizens are eligible to become presidents."

The U.S. Constitution even provides that if an elected president is not qualified for the office, the vice president shall stand in for him until he is qualified.

"Last year, the Obama campaign team released a Certification of Live Birth, which states that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961. The state of Hawaii only allows for the release of an original birth certificate under 'extenuating circumstances,'" the survey report said.

Man builds working replica of Noah's Ark (exact scale given in Bible)

Working Replica of Noah's Ark Opened In SCHAGEN, Netherlands . The massive central door in the side of Noah's Ark was opened the first crowd of curious townsfolk to behold the wonder. Of course, it's only a replica of the biblical Ark , built by Dutch Creationist Johan Huibers as a testament to his faith in the literal truth of the Bible.

The ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high and 20 cubits wide. That's two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold. A contractor by trade, Huibers built the ark of cedar and pine. Biblical Scholars debate exactly what the wood used by Noah would have been.

Huibers did the work mostly with his own hands, using modern tools and with occasional help from his son Roy. Construction began in May 2005. On the uncovered top deck - not quite ready in time for the opening - will come a petting zoo, with baby lambs and chickens, and goats, and one camel.

Visitors on the first day were stunned. 'It's past comprehension', said Mary Louise Starosciak, who happened to be bicycling by with her husband while on vacation when they saw the ark looming over the local landscape.

'I knew the story of Noah, but I had no idea the boat would have been so big.' There is enough space near the keel for a 50-seat film theater where kids can watch a video that tells the story of Noah and his ark. Huibers, a Christian man, said he hopes the project will renew interest in Christianity in the Netherlands , where church going has fallen dramatically in the past 50 years.

Now that I am old and gray...give me the time to tell this new generation (and their children too) about all your mighty miracles. Psalm 71:18

War on the Constitution by Nobel winner

While battling the FBI's expanded surveillance guidelines, Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., also revealed (Daily Kos, Oct. 8) that in the Senate Judiciary Committee review of the Patriot Act (also Oct. 8), Republicans protecting the Act were joined, in a closed-door classified session, by Obama officials with amendments further preserving it. Then, in a public session, all but three Democrats voted for a watered-down "compromise" bill by Patrick Leahy and Diane Feinstein.

Feingold, Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and new Democrat Arlen Specter (Pa.) had the constitutional courage to oppose the Judiciary Committee bill eventually going to the floor that with few exceptions, leaves the Patriot Act intact. I'll be reporting on the crucial fight to bring the Bill of Rights back into the Patriot Act as Senate and House versions merge into a law to be signed by Obama as he continues the Bush-Cheney legacy.

It was Feingold who, in October 2001, was the only member of the Senate to vote against the original Patriot Act as, on the floor, he accurately predicted our greatly weakened privacy, due process and other rights since then.

He is not giving up. "In the end," Feingold says. "Democrats have to decide if they are going to stand up for the rights of the American people" or (for recent example) "allow the FBI to write our laws."  MORE>>>>>>>


OBITUARY Elizabeth Clare Prophet dies at 70; former leader of religious sect

Elizabeth Clare Prophet, retired spiritual leader of the Church Universal and Triumphant, which was based for several years in a Calabasas headquarters called Camelot and gained notoriety in the late 1980s for its followers' elaborate preparations for nuclear Armageddon, has died. She was 70.

Prophet, who had Alzheimer's disease, died Thursday in Bozeman, Mont., her legal guardian, Murray Steinman, told the Associated Press.

The church's beliefs combined aspects of the world's major religions, mixing Western philosophy with mysticism. Despite Prophet's illness, her videos and writings continued to dominate teaching in the church, which has transformed into a New Age publishing enterprise and spiritual university.  MORE>>>>>>>

Obama from Kenya, archived report says
Revives worry about president's eligibility for office

An archived article from 2004 on Barack Obama's run for the U.S. Senate in Illinois describes the relative political newcomer as "Kenyan-born," providing further fuel for speculation over the president's eligibilty for office.

WND has noted various news reports that have either stated or implied Obama's birthplace is not Hawaii, as he has claimed, but Africa.

The issue is significant, since there are a number of lawsuits challenging Obama's eligibility that argue if he was not born in the U.S., he does not meet the requirement in the Constitution that the president be a "natural born" citizen.

WND further has reported on the disagreement among those documenting Obama's presidency over which Hawaii hospital was his birth place.

Now have come a flood of blog questions and e-mails regarding the apparently archived article from the Sunday Standard in Kenya.

The report starts out, "Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack (sic) Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations."


The report continues to discuss the allegations against Ryan, Obama's opponent in his race for the U.S. Senate, and his decision to drop out, virtually handing the Senate seat to the political newcomer.

White House boasts: We 'control' news media

Communications chief offers shocking confession to foreign government

Anita Dunn

TEL AVIV – President Obama's presidential campaign focused on "making" the news media cover certain issues while rarely communicating anything to the press unless it was "controlled," White House Communications Director Anita Dunn disclosed to the Dominican government at a videotaped conference.

"Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control," said Dunn.

"One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters," said Dunn, referring to Plouffe, who was Obama's chief campaign manager.

"We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it," Dunn said.   MORE>>>>>>>>>>>

Obama's alleged kindergarten class (photo: Maui News)

While nearly 400,000 concerned citizens demand President Obama present his elusive "long-form" birth certificate, more than a dozen other documents remain unreleased or otherwise blocked from the public eye.

Numerous documents which have yet to be surrendered include the following.

Obama kindergarten records

The Maui News reported that Obama attended kindergarten at Noelani Elementary School on Oahu during the school year 1966-67. It released a photo of two teachers, Katherine Nakamoto and Aimee Yatsushiro, with five students. The teachers claim one of the children is Barack Obama.

According to the Hawaii Department of Education, students must submit a birth certificate to register. Parents may bring a passport or student visa if the child is from a foreign country.

So far, no records have been released by the school. Noelani Elementary School officials have not responded to WND's request for comment.

Punahou School records


Punahou's alleged 1979 yearbook photo of Obama playing basketball

Though from a modest background, Obama began attending the prestigious Punahou School in Honolulu, one of Hawaii's top private institutions. He reportedly received a scholarship and attended the school from the fifth grade until he finished high school, though no financial records have been released.

The Boston Globe reported, "In 1979, the year Obama graduated, tuition for high school students at Punahou was $1,990, a sizable expense compared with Hawaii's median family income of $22,750 that year.

Obama, reportedly a "B" student, studied among the island's richest and most accomplished students. According to the school's website, he also played forward on Punahou's 1979 state championship basketball team.

Occidental College records

Obama arrived at Occidental College, a small liberal arts school in Los Angeles, Calif., in the fall of 1979. He only briefly mentions the school in his 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father."

Obama attended the school on a scholarship. Some question whether the financial aid he received was reserved for foreign students. Financial records have not been released.

In a legal action, handled largely by Gary Kreep of the U.S. Justice Foundation, officials at Occidental College were served with a demand to produce records concerning Barack Obama's attendance there during the 1980s because they could document whether he was attending as a foreign national.

Kreep petitioned the college with a demand for its records concerning Obama.


Occidental College library

"The gravamen of the petition is the question as to whether United States Senator Barack Hussein Obama, of Illinois, is eligible to serve as president of the United States pursuant to the requirements for that office in the United States Constitution," he wrote. "The records sought may provide documentary evidence, and/or admissions by said defendant, as to said eligibility or lack thereof."

College officials then contacted Obama's lawyers, who argued to the court that the election was over and that future concerns should be addressed to Congress.

The motion stated that the records, which could reveal on what name Obama attended classes at Occidental and whether he attended on scholarship money intended for foreign students, "are of no relevance to this moot litigation."

The motion also claimed the petitioners failed to serve the subpoena properly.

Get your "Where's the birth certificate?" bumper sticker here.

"The subpoena directed to Occidental College should therefore be quashed. Alternatively, this court should issue an order directing that the deposition of the custodian of records of Occidental College not take place," the firm working on Obama's behalf stated.

"The central issue in this lawsuit … is whether any Respondent had a legal duty to demand proof of natural born citizenship from Democratic Party's nominee," the motion said. "None of the documents sought by petitioners could possibly assist in answering this question."

A judge granted a motion to quash the subpoena.

"Obama's attorneys bent over backward to block us," Kreep told WND. "Obama doesn't want anyone to see those records. He's trying to hide them."   >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Colonies More Prosperous Than The Home Country

Before the American War for Independence in 1776, the colonized part of what is today the United States of America was a possession of England. It was called New England, and was made up of 13 colonies, which became the first 13 states of the great Republic. Around 1750, this New England was very prosperous. Benjamin Franklin was able to write:

“There was abundance in the Colonies, and peace was reigning on every border. It was difficult, and even impossible, to find a happier and more prosperous nation on all the surface of the globe. Comfort was prevailing in every home. The people, in general, kept the highest moral standards, and education was widely spread.”

When Benjamin Franklin went over to England to represent the interests of the Colonies, he saw a completely different situation: the working population of this country was gnawed by hunger and poverty. “The streets are covered with beggars and tramps,” he wrote. He asked his English friends how England, with all its wealth, could have so much poverty among its working classes.

His friends replied that England was a prey to a terrible condition: it had too many workers! The rich said they were already overburdened with taxes, and could not pay more to relieve the needs and poverty of this mass of workers. Several rich Englishmen of that time actually believed, along with Mathus, that wars and plague were necessary to rid the country from man-power surpluses.

Franklin’s friends then asked him how the American Colonies managed to collect enough money to support their poor houses, and how they could overcome this plague of pauperism. Franklin replied:

“We have no poor houses in the Colonies; and if we had some, there would be nobody to put in them, since there is, in the Colonies, not a single unemployed person, neither beggars nor tramps.”
