Legislation would aim to cut extreme global poverty in half by 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senators Barack Obama (D-IL), Chuck Hagel (R-NE), and Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Congressman Adam Smith (D-WA) today hailed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's passage of the Global Poverty Act (S.2433), which requires the President to develop and implement a comprehensive policy to cut extreme global poverty in half by 2015 through aid, trade, debt relief, and coordination with the international community, businesses and NGOs. This legislation was introduced in December. Smith and Congressman Spencer Bachus (R-AL) sponsored the House version of the bill (H.R. 1302), which passed the House last September.

"With billions of people living on just dollars a day around the world, global poverty remains one of the greatest challenges and tragedies the international community faces," said Senator Obama. "It must be a priority of American foreign policy to commit to eliminating extreme poverty and ensuring every child has food, shelter, and clean drinking water. As we strive to rebuild America's standing in the world, this important bill will demonstrate our promise and commitment to those in the developing world. Our commitment to the global economy must extend beyond trade agreements that are more about increasing corporate profits than about helping workers and small farmers everywhere. I commend Chairman Biden and Ranking Member Lugar for supporting this bill and moving it forward quickly."

"Poverty, hunger, and disease will be among the most serious challenges confronting the world in the 21st century," Senator Hagel said. "This legislation provides the President of the United States the framework and resources to help implement a comprehensive policy to reduce global poverty. It is the human condition that has always driven the great events of history. This is a responsibility of all citizens of the world."

"Global poverty directly impacts our national security. We must rally private sector and government resources to eliminate extreme global poverty and to fight global disease." said Senator Cantwell. "With more than 1.1 billion men, women and children throughout the world living on less than $1 a day, it is of the utmost importance to make sure these people get the help they need and push for sustainable economic growth. We need to do more to save lives in the poorest countries and extend our hand to people in need."

"Global poverty is one of the greatest moral and security challenges facing the world today. Nearly 2.7 billion people live on less than $2 a day and close to a billion live on less than $1 a day. This bill represents a major advance in our effort to address global poverty. After introducing this measure in the House for the past several years, I am pleased to see the Senate Foreign Relations Committee take significant steps toward its final passage," Congressman Smith said.

For years, America has committed to improving the lives of the world's poorest people. In 2000, the U.S. joined more than 180 countries at the United Nations Millennium Summit and vowed to reduce global poverty by 2015. We are halfway towards this deadline, and it is time the United States makes it a priority of our foreign policy to meet this goal and help those who are struggling day to day.

The Global Poverty Act:

Declares it official U.S. policy to promote the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of cutting extreme global poverty in half by 2015.
Requires the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to carry out that policy.
Includes guidelines for what the strategy should include - from aid, trade, and debt relief, to working with the international community, businesses and NGOs, to ensuring environmental sustainability.
Requires that the President's strategy include specific and measurable goals, efforts to be undertaken, benchmarks, and timetables.
Requires the President to report back to Congress on progress made in the implementation of the global poverty strategy.
The legislation is supported by a broad range of groups, including Bread for the World, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, CARE, Oxfam America, Habitat for Humanity International, National Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club, United Church of Christ, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the Borgen Project, United Methodist General Board of Church and Society, RESULTS, Micah Challenge USA, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.


While right/left wingers rant on about Obama and Mohammed ("He is/ He ain't/ He is/He ain't" etc) the MSM, or rather OSM (Obama Stream Media)neatly cover up or play down one of the most easily documented sources of ObamaSpeak: his greatest single Political Guru, the rabid Chicago Marxist Saul Alinsky

True, Hillary Clinton may have washed Alinsky's feet back then. (I knew those types well back in The Age of the Beatles, some of them romantics, some half-crazy, many of them a combination.) But in the end, The Hillary was no Obama. She was a good girl who, unlike Obama, did not go all the way. She went into corporate law and also got tied up with a big hunk of Bubba. Her Bubba was always a Bubba Man rather than a Marxie ideologue.

Obama, au contraire, as a perfect study of rootless, deracinated "talent," ambitious but desperate for "identity," actually lived out the Alinsky playbook for how radicals can achieve power. He embodied the desperate young naif, coddled and privileged by white family members, but, due to his errant Kenyan father who flew the coop, lacking masculine authority and identity. Chicago was a substitute for the father who deserted him---and to a degree for the white mother who shuffled him off on her own parents. Pastor Wright. Louis Farrakhan. Others of the "oppressed," but not household names.

As Kyle-Anne Shiver put it in the American Thinker (Note how the Left Mind can't help but assign "Government" the function of responsible parents. The Left always seems to be singing, or now rapping, to Big Government, "Without You I Am NOthing.")

"The agitator's job, according to Alinsky, is first to bring folks to the "realization" that they are indeed miserable, that their misery is the fault of unresponsive governments or greedy corporations, then help them to bond together to demand what they deserve, and to make such an almighty stink that the dastardly governments and corporations will see imminent "self-interest" in granting whatever it is that will cause the harassment to cease.

"In these methods, euphemistically labeled "community organizing," Obama had a four-year education, which he often says was the best education he ever got anywhere."



Last week the Gringo News Service reported on the new flap about the Obama "Birth Certificate" posted at the Kos kidz. Someone known as Techdude, citing a long list of professional credentials in document analysis, calls the COLB undeniably "fraudulent." Techdude subjected it to excruciating analysis online that will be followed closely by no one except authentic nerds and techies.

At this corner of MonicaMedia there was little or no reaction (certainly none from Obama defender Naijaman.)

However, last Saturday night on ABC radio, Monica friend John Batchelor broadcast a segment with Techdude himself.

Veddy interesting.

As previously stated, gringoVision is withholding judgement while the story unfolds.

Meanwhile, AJ Strata, known online as a conservative, is pooh-poohing. He calls Techdude a Techdud. AJ Strata has credentials too, from NASA and DOD as a computer systems analyst.

Conclusion: Even if the OSM (ObamaStream) will not touch it, this story still lives in the blogosphere and is not over until it's over.(CBS and Dan Rather would know something about how that works.) Are any of these opposing techies really keeping politics out of it? Probably few, if any. They're just a bit more subtle about it than the typical Internet "opinionist."


"He embodied the desperate young naif, coddled and privileged by white family members, but, due to his errant Kenyan father who flew the coop, lacking masculine authority and identity."


Adolf Hitler's father died when Adolf was still a youth. That's not where the similarities end either.


Gringoman, I have to take exception to only one comment in your otherwise rather excellent brief.

I did comment on the Obama birth certificate issue. I read the relevant documents as well on Pamela's blog.


And I said recently that Obama is not a real American.

Hey, there's a black preaacher in Harlem who says the exact same thing!

"Obama is a long-legged Mac Daddy!"

"He was born trash!"



Which makes me an expert on Adolf Hitler according to Fred anyway. I'd like to note that I was unaware of this biographical fact until I saw the movie "The Boys from Brazil" a few days ago.

But hey, I've been declared an expert!


Again, Ummah, try to recognize sarcasm.

Why would I say you would be an expert on Hitler? Think, and then report back.


You're way too didactic for me, moHAMfred. My bet is you're a school teacher.

I believe the children are the future..

Too bad they're being taught by a bunch of leftwing punters like u.


Wrong. I'm not a teacher.


tax collector? IRS agent?

8/4/08: AP Lies About Obama’s Red Mentor



We all know how NObama feels about "freedom of speech".

Speaking of Imus... sorry, I haven't gotten back to you UG, but I've been ...distracted...

I didn't hear Imus' show today. He supports McCain and he has called Obama a phoney in the past, but he doesn't go after Obama as much as everyone else does.

And as for Bernard...Here is a Manny update...

"It's nice to have that type of player," Torre said. "There aren't that many guys like that that come down the pipe [with] that ability that he has to hit".


Go Sox/Go Dodgers


This isn't 20 questions, Ummah. Go plug the Gringohole.


How did Juan become cool?

The MOMENT I heard Savage play a clip of this I had to check it out.
Here are the pictures from the "Huffington Post"


I've ALWAYS wanted to go to Sturgis. My cousin went with her boyfriend one year and she had a great time.

A lot of women own Harleys, check out the numbers. In fact, one of my friends (who is drop dead gorgeous)bought a Harley with her wedding money after her boyfriend cancelled on her. Didn't take her long to find a new guy.

Juan is definitely not p.c.


(Wikipedia):Huey Pierce Long, Jr. (August 30, 1893 – September 10, 1935), nicknamed The Kingfish, was an American politician from the U.S. state of Louisiana. A Democrat, he was noted for his radical populist policies. He served as Governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and as a U.S. senator from 1932 to 1935. Though a backer of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1932 presidential election, Long split with Roosevelt in June 1933 and allegedly planned to mount his own presidential bid.

Long created the Share Our Wealth program in 1934, with the motto "Every Man a King," proposing new wealth redistribution measures in the form of a net asset tax on large corporations and individuals of great wealth to curb the poverty and crime resulting from the Great Depression. He was an ardent critic of the Federal Reserve System.
I was very sad to hear about Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn the other day. He was a great man and when you compare him with people like B. Obama you see what a pathetic figure Obama represents. A good comparison of Obama is the "Kingfish" from Louisiana, Huey Long. In his day Huey Long was considered the fringe of the Democratic Party, but now his crazy views have become mainstream in the Democratic Party. It's not a coincidence that Huey Long, from Louisiana, and B. Obama, from Chicago have so much in common and these two states have historically been the most corrupt states in the Union. Huey Long's slogan was "share the wealth" and believed in redistribution of income, and now Obama has basically stolen Long's platform without the slogan. Obama would increase the taxes on the "rich" and corportations, increase the taxes on capital gains and dividends which effect everyones retirement plans, and redistribute that money to his voting blocks. He has mainstream in the Democratic Party the politics of a radical kook from the 1930s who even split from FDR.


MM.. glad to hear you've been .. distracted..

Go Mets and any team that is playing the Yankees!

I LOVED seeing the SOX come back from three down against the Evil Empire back in 04.

To be honest, I was kind of drowsing this morning but I really thought I heard Imus saying that he supports Obama.

Could he haveswitched allegiances..? Maybe he got a call from a certain "reverend" causing him to "change".

Go Mets.. good they finally got rid of the stoic Yankee Willie Randolph. I have no idea why we'd let a Yankee rookie manager learn by managing our team when he even refused to manage in the minors like everybody else to get his feet wet.

The Mets definitely sold themselves short on that deal.


What a shame that Paris Hilton and her Moma didn't appreciate Juan's ad. I thought this Paris Hilton joke was pretty funny.



Here's moHAMfred's hero speaking for himself..

The One who got in on Dhimmi Carter's watch.. I wonder what types will get in power during an Obamination Administration..

Care to speculate..?

Text below..



moHAMfred's big mentor and idol..

Khomeini's speech on the day of celebration of the birth of Muhammad: 1981

سخنرانی آقای خمينی
سالروز تولد رسول اسلام , سال 1360
The real Day of God is the day that Amir al mo’menin (1) drew his sword and slaughtered all the khavarej (2) and killed them from the first to the last.

يوم الله واقعی روزی است كه امير المؤ منين عليه السلام ، شمشيرش را كشيد و خوارج را از اول تا به آخر درو كرد و تمامشان را كشت

The Days of God are when Allah, the gracious, the almighty, causes an earthquake.

ايام الله روزهائی است كه خداوند تبارك و تعالی يك زلزله ای وارد ميكند

It is when He slaps on the face.

يك سيلی را وارد ميكند

It is when he causes a hurricane.

يك توفانی را وارد ميكند

He whips this people to become humans.

به اين مردم شلاق ميزند كه ، آدم بشوند

If the Amir al mo’menin (1) wanted to be tolerant, he would not have drawn his sword killing 700 people in one go

امير المؤمنين اگر بنا بود مسامحه كند شمشير نميكشيد تا 700 نفر را يكدفعه بكشد

In our prisons we have more of the same kind of people who are corrupt.

در حبس های ما هم بيشتر از اين اشخاص هستند ، كه مفسدند

If we do not kill them, each one of them that gets out, will become a murderer!

اگر ما اينها را نكشيم ، هر يكی شان كه بيايد بيرون ميرود آدم ميكشد

They don’t become humans.

... آدم نميشوند اينها

Why do you Mullahs only go after the ordinances of prayer and fasting?

شما ، علما چرا فقط سراغ احكام نماز و روزه ميرويد

Why do you only read the Quranic verses of mercy and do not read the verses of killing?

چرا هی آيات رحمت در قرآن را ميخوانيد و آيات قتال را نميخوانيد

Quran says; kill, imprison!

قرآن ميگويد بكشيد ، حبس كنيد

Why are you only clinging to the part that talks about mercy?

چرا شما همان طرفش را گرفته ايد كه صحبت از رحمت ميكند

Mercy is against God.

رحمت مخالف با خداست

Mehrab (3) means the place of war, the place of fighting.

محراب يعنی مكان حرب ، يعنی مكان جنگ

Out of the mehrabs, wars should proceed,

از محرابها بايد ، جنگ پيدا شود

Just as all the wars of Islam used to proceeded out of the mehrabs.

چنانكه بيشتر جنگهای اسلام از محرابها پيدا ميشد

The prophet has [had] sword to kill people..

پيغمبر شمشير دارد تا آدم بكشد

Our [Holy] Imams were quite military men.

ائمه ما همگی چندی ، نظامی بودند

All of them were warriors.

همگی جنگی بودند

They used to wield swords; they used to kill people.

شمشير ميكشيدند ، آدم ميكشتند

We need a Khalifa who would chop hands, cut throat, stone people

ما خليفه ميخواهيم كه دست ببرد ، حد بزند ، رجم كند

In the same way that the messenger of God used to chop hands, cut throats, and stone people.

همانطور كه رسول الله دست ميبريد ، حد ميزد ، رجم ميكرد

In the same way that he massacred the Jews of Bani Qurayza (4) because they were a bunch of discontent people.

همانطور كه يهود بنی قريظه را ، چون جماعتی ناراضی ! ... بودند قتل عام كرد

If the Prophet used to order to burn a house or exterminate a tribe that was justice.

اگر رسول الله فرمان داد كه فلان خانه را آتش بزنيد ، فلان طايفه را از بين ببريد ، حكم به عدل كرده است

The lives of people must be secured through punishment.

زندگی بشر را بايد به قصاص تامين كرد

Because, the protection of the masses lies beneath these very punitive executions.

زيرا حمايت توده ، زير اين قتل قصاصی ، خوابيده است

With just a few years of imprisonment things don’t get fixed.

با چند سال زندان كار درست نميشود

You must put aside these childish sentimentalism.

اين عواطف بچه گانه را كنار بگذاريد

We believe that the accused essentially does not have to be tried. He or she must just be killed.

ما معتقديم كه مجرم اصولا محاكمه ندارد و بايد او را كشت

Only their identity is to be established and then they should be killed.

تنها بايد هويت آنان را ثابت كرد و بعد آنها را كشت


Any questions, moHAMfred?


Oh now I think I got you pegged.. forgive the pun, but u seem to have a love for saucy language.. u r a social worker!

It all makes perfect sense now.


I don't know how you got the idea that social workers are like athletes in a locker room, but you obviously have no idea what I do. Which is fine.

Again, find the Gringohole and plug it.



Michelle Obama is supposed to be on GMA this week - thanks a lot.



Imus did say that he was now undecided, but he did talk about how Obama wanted him fired. I don't really care what Imus thinks anyway.

I appreciate your support in 2004. 2003 was an ugly year for Red Sox fans. It took me months to recover and 2004 was looking to be even worse, but then IT happened....

I started watching the Dodgers the year they were playing against the Mets in the playoffs because a handful of the 2004 Red Sox are now Dodgers (Nomar Garciapara and Derek Lowe), but I don't even have enough time to keep up with the Red Sox.


"MCCAIN: As you may know, not long ago, a couple of hundred thousand Berliners made a lot of noise for my opponent. I'll take the roar of 50,000 Harleys any day! (cheers) Any day, my friends!"

(From Rush's website.) GO JUAN!!!!!!!


Red Sox fans are STILL talking about this too.




You must have noticed the femi-nutsie reaction to Johhny Boy when he suggested his wife enter the topless beauty contest. Reading their furious blog comments---more fun than hearing white libs discuss Obama and his "next eight years". The progressive nutsies, while throwing dishes at Juanito, pretend to be proud that a man would never say that about them. They are not the best argument for women's suffrage.


Good to hear that! I hope both Tampa and Boston make it into the playoffs and the prospects the Yanks gave for their two plug-ins will turn out to be SUPERSTARS!

This is the ONLY think i agree with Ted the Red on:


Oh, Laura Ingraham is also looking for Michelle.. LOL

We'll have a Michelle Obama watch going soon...

.. a Michelle-O-meter!! Or short a Michellometer.



Hey moHAMfred.. noone but me is paying any attention to you. You should really be nicer to me.

Think of how nice Don Imus is to the rev. Al.

Kinda like that...



Must have missed your comment on Techdude and alleged Obama "forgery" of Birth Certificate. The latest that GNS checked out today indicates a minor war of some techies vs Techdude. Impossible to sort out all the excruciating technical detail right now in the pro and con re "forgery." Or maybe you think not?

As for Freeka, the problem in dealing with the infantile: Diapers. The squishy stuff. To them it's not disgusting. To their mommy it's not disgusting. It's what they do. They like everybody to see it and smell it. Freud's pleasure principle. They have to get pleasure where they can. How much honest fun can a miscreant have? You're so right about how this one used to make on Monica. But he can't stand it when someone, especially you, makes on him, It distracts him from Monica, though, so you're performing a social service, cutting down on juvenile, or infantile, delinquency. It complicates the Saul Alinsky, pushcart version. The Holy War Against Daddy Capitalist.

These can crawl onto a keyboard and make too. Outside they'd be flattened like Mommy's pancake. Indoors, on the keyboard, they're safe. Mommy is nearby. She won't flatten them like the pancake.

So far.



Femi-nutsie LOL...

I don't think Juan screwed up at Sturgis. He knew EXACTLY what he is doing when he entered Cindy in that beauty contest.

Savage repeated last night that HE IS NOT endorsing McCain, but he has said in the past that he LOVES Cindy. He even repeated that for his shocked audience. I bet there are a lot of guys who feel the same way.

To tell you the truth, I was a little concerned about Cindy myself, but she obviously can take a joke. Obviously, Juan and Cindy are the type of candidates you can have a beer with. As for the other two, who would want to?

I too find the humor in "The Huffington Post", but, unlike the trolls, I don't have the time to monitor it.


Gringohole --

As usual, when I lower myself to enter the fray with you and Ummah, then you decide that you are princes above it all. It would be nice if you two could be honest with yourselves about your behavior here.

Even when I disappear from this blog for a few days, you continue to get down in the dirt with someone. For a while there it was Timothy (especially after he complied with your request to detail his military service) and Najiaman.


"To tell you the truth, I was a little concerned about Cindy myself, but she obviously can take a joke. Obviously, Juan and Cindy are the type of candidates you can have a beer with. As for the other two, who would want to?"


MM the other two would have more than beer.. coke adds life.


Still paging la desaparecida.. Michelle, wherefore oh wherefore art thou?!


Someone just compared Obama to Hitler? That's hilarious...pure comedy relief. Thanks for the laughs folks. Keep 'em coming.



Juanito can still disappoint, but I'll bet the McCain/Cindy marriage is so good and so hot that they both laughed themselves silly over new Paris Hilton ad calling him "crinkly old white guy" and "the oldest celebrity alive" etc. (I almost sent in a donation and said I may have met some of his old Hanoi Hilton guards during the Fall of Saigon after the CBS guys fled in the panic). The liberals and femi-nutsies don't really get it. Why? It's humor. And it's for any demographic or level of taste (something incomprehensible to such "liberated" types.)

The McCain Camp's official reaction was spot on: "Paris Hilton obviously has a better energy policy than Barack Obama."

Maybe Juanito really is finding his voice? GAB still does not expect the carpet-bombing to begin before September, possibly October.

ps Cindy for the first time did something the tight-lipped McCain still refuses to do: mentioned in public(to 50,000 NASCAR) that they have two sons in uniform, one of them in Iraq. Can you imagine any Dem or a John "Reporting for duty" Kerry not splashing something like this all over the media---if he had it to splash?


Everything GNS last reported here about Obama COLB (Fraud?) was the most recent, days after the big reports from Atlas Shrugs. Pamela had nothing new, at least as of yesterday.

The Gringo Advisory Board is curious as to the UGperspective on this (possibly) still developing story, and whether you have anything new on it.


Pray tell, Nastyman.. who compared the Anointed One to Hitler?

Why would anyone do such a thing?

Could it be his dubious financing? Or his absolute sense of Righteousness? His complete lack of real life work experience? His ideological underpinnings or maybe his penchant for hooking up with various thugs, both at home and abroad?

On the other hand is he really more at home in Chicago or in Kenya?

Hitler came from one country to rise to poser in another.. his father died when he was but a youth.

Hitler had an overwhelming sense of Mission.

Hitler has a strong sense of entitlement and he wanted to right perceived "wrongs".

There's more that comes to mind now..

You don't want this debate, Najisman.


Guys I just found this after hearing Limbaugh laugh about it.

Arab Nissan boycott alert:



"Could it be his dubious financing? Or his absolute sense of Righteousness? His complete lack of real life work experience? His ideological underpinnings or maybe his penchant for hooking up with various thugs, both at home and abroad?"

Hmmm...sounds more like George W. Bush to me.

Ummah..did you just challenge me to a debate? You might want to rethink that, because from your vantage point, "debates" come with name calling and insults, which I find boring.



what is GMA? Forgive my ignorance on this one..


You wanna debate, Najisman.. bring it *ON*.


I sound like Bush to u

u sound like moHAmfred to me.

Patrick O

Monica, Your main point is a good one, but I think you were too hasty in describing every U.S. president between Truman and Bush 41 as a hero of the Cold War. Jimmy Carter was nobody's hero.


When a l€ftard tells me that I sound liek GW Bush it tells me that I've hit a nerve.

Like any good dentist I shall keep on drilling.. right until the world is safe from liberalism.


Patrick I am sure she regrets that error.. LOL we all know what Dhimmi Cuttah is.

Dhimmi Cuttah is hero to the "palestinians" just like Hussein Obama is. I posted a link to reports about the shady foreign sponsors of his campaign in Gaza.

Interesting.. our guvmints send them money and they spend it on guns and ammo and on supporting Obama.

Dhimmi Cuttah made the Assahola K possible.. and we now are living with the consequences.


Gringoman.. unfortunately I don't have any further news on the Obama birth certificate.

I do think that's an important issue which must be pursued to the limit.

This guy has far too many loayalties abroad, as he is not shy to demonstrate every chance he gets.

Watch out this guy will be head of the U.nited N.azis someday. He's US-hating and evil enough..


MM the other two would have more than beer.. coke adds life.

"Good Morning America" on ABC at 7 am. eastern. Michelle is supposed to be on, but I don't know which day so tune in right at 7 when they announce who there guests are.

Bernard will be hosting Imus on Thursday and Friday, so you can turn back to WABC right after you see "your girl".


Ummah...I said your statement, which I had in quotes, sounded more like a description of Bush. I did not say you sounded like Bush.
