How about that surreal trade - 10 Russian spies, for 4 other Russian spies! What kind of a deal was that?

TO me, it almost seems that they wanted these people out of the way ASAP, so the press would not talk with them. Just seems that way.

How were these people helping the Democratic Party raise money? Considering they are suspected Russian spies, this might be rather interesting. Were they possibly channeling Russian money into the Party? Would that be legal?

Not to worry. The Best and the Bite-ingest, the elite of the elite, the Yearlings of Aspen, are now re-assessing their glorified "post-racial" Community Organizer. Obamafest it is not. If reports are accurate, they are even catching up with critiques made here well over a year ago. We welcome them. Soyez les bienvenues, messieurs (et mesdames?) In a way, it's kind of awesome, this display at Aspen of intellect, or whatever.

Good heavens! The Aspenmensch seem dangerously close to describing their once hallowed Bam-Bam as little more than a Marxist Man-Child with teleprompter talent and a politically correct tan. What have they stopped drinking? No more chartreuse koolaid on the rocks with a lemon twist?

I think we have to find some way of dealing with that or else we will do great damage to this country with a public policy that could ruin everything.”

It’s just not a lot of fun actually—decline.”

The quick manner in which the ten "spies" were dispatched, is suspicious. In addition, their so-called deep background mission, also makes little sense. Russians are not new at the spy game. Back in the 40's they recruited people from the US that spoke normal english without an accent. That is how one infiltrates. There are numerous Russian spies in the US, many of whom do not speak with accents. Why would they place these people into democratic party fund-raising as deep agents. It is almost laughable.
They were openly Russians although they lived with old cover stories.

No, they must have been doing something else. The obviously thing is they were helping the democratic party raise money. The DP knew who they were, government people from Russia, and they just worked along with them as a faction of the party.

Where is their due process? When Arabs from Guantanimo were to be tried, it was to be before a public court. These people are clearly not military, so, why are they not receiving a public trial? Everything is being covered up. State secrets are not involved, so hopefully it will be examined in more detail in the days and weeks ahead.
they hardly spent a day in jail. There was no preparation for a case.

THIS IS A WATERGATE LIKE THINGIE.

UNITED NATIONS, October 20 2008(RIA Novosti) - Russia's permanent mission to the UN has received a letter from U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain asking for financial support of his election campaign, the mission said in a statement on Monday.

"We have received a letter from Senator John McCain with a request for a financial donation to his presidential election campaign. In this respect we have to reiterate that neither Russia's permanent mission to the UN nor the Russian government or its officials finance political activities in foreign countries," the statement said.

According to Ruslan Bakhtin, press secretary of the Russian mission, the letter dated September 29 and signed by McCain, was addressed to Vitaly Churkin, Russia's envoy to the UN, and arrived on October 16.


Enclosed was a request for a donation of up to $5,000 to McCain's election campaign to be returned with a check or permission to withdraw the money from the donor's credit card until October 24.

Individual donations to candidates' election campaigns are capped by law at $2,300, and it is illegal to accept donations from foreign nationals.

Why would Hillary say she was the target? Was it because they had become too public?

How much money was involved, for Obama to cover it up like this, pretending to trade spies? Millions?
Billions?

"Now, this president understands deeply that governments don't create jobs, businesses create jobs."

This president also understands blacks, in general, lack the capability to compete on a level playing field within a capitalist system.

Ever wonder why the Tea Party people are labeled racist? Well, it's because they pose a threat to the racial-socialist's redistributionist agenda.

---The finance bill imposes sex and race quotas on the entire finance industry---


"This appears to be the first time this stunning news about this bill has been reported in the media, even though the bill is on the verge of final passage.

Under Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky, the Bolsheviks had to carry out a bloody military coup in order to impose a totalitarian socialist government on Russia. Under Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, all they have to do is pass bills into law without anyone’s saying what’s in them. I guess that’s what liberals mean by Progress"

Diana Furchtgott-Roth writes at Real Clear Markets:


"I was searching [the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill] for a provision about derivatives. What did I find but Section 342, which declares that race and gender employment ratios, if not quotas, must be observed by private financial institutions that do business with the government. In a major power grab, the new law inserts race and gender quotas into America’s financial industry.
In addition to this bill’s well-publicized plans to establish over a dozen new financial regulatory offices, Section 342 sets up at least 20 Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion. This has had no coverage by the news media and has large implications."

As gringoVision (and a few other outlets) have been pointing out to the confused, Barack Obama is in effect a (sic) "post-racial" Trojan Horse for the triumph of Marxist racism in the USA. His Liberal Racist past and a Justice Department that will not even prosecute Black Panther Nazi-like thugs in Philly is just another clue. The clever tactic of Liberal Racism has been used for decades. Blacks are the chief target. The Marxist-Liberal media/political complex has "adopted" blacks, patronizing them into becoming wards of the state who will be supported and even hired on the backs of taxpayers and the more qualified. They know the typical black will like it and they can label any opponents as 'racist.' Who would be able to resist these Marxist blandishments, even if blacks did not have "issues" with non-blacks (and if you think "non-blacks" does not include Asians and many latinos, heh-heh.)

In effect, this cunning Marxist wermacht has turned the majority of blacks into angry tools for socialism, which is the fundamental reason for the Left's crusade for "justice" and re-distribution. In fact, the more that blacks are given, under the double-standard racism now enforced in the US, the angrier they get. (This is a paradox only for those who don't understand the psychology of spoiled children.) They also know that most Americans fear Libworld's PC Police, or are too befuddled or too busy to do anything about the epic socialist take-over of the USA.

BULLETIN. Now, finally, a new book is out which expounds on all these and related points. NEGROPHILIA, by Erik Rush,

ps. Conceivably even the bright bulbs of the Aspenmenschen in Colorado will eventually re-appraise their patronizing ways. Will any realize how they've been played by their "compassion" and the Marxistas? Who knows?

"[m]any of black Americans remain poor and ignorant because that's the way many politicians and activists want them to remain." ( --Eric Rush)

===========

Only partially true. However the main reason a large segment of the black community remain poor and ignorant is they are simply, ineducable, untrainable thus unemployable. Furthermore, many of those who comprise the black underclass lack the fundamental social skills needed to enter the work world.

I'm not quite sold on the idea that Marxists preplanned the welfare state's outcome. I think more or less it just happened that way. What started off as good Libtard intentions, resulted in hideous unintended consequences. Moreover, I've been under the impression that business and government got together and created welfare programs to function as a payoff. It was intended to keep blacks pacified. Hopefully, they thought, it would keep them from rioting and burning down cities thus crippling the nation's overall economy. In any event, the welfare state is sure having a negative impact on the black family unit. Eg, a perpetual cycle of generation after generation of low IQ Welfare Queens giving birth to numerous kids via numerous absentee fathers. This manifests in all sorts of social pathologies such as illiteracy, unemployability, and horrendous crime rates to name a few. I'm not stating as fact low IQ or single mothers are sole causalities for high crime rates etc., but low IQ/single mothers and social pathologies do correlate.

Welcome to “Post-Racial” America

Attorney General Eric Holder, the man who said that when it comes to race America’s a nation of cowards, stopped a very clear cut case of voter intimidation dead in it’s tracks.

The DOJ won’t prosecute the New Black Panthers for voter’s rights violations, but they will sue the State of Arizona for enforcing border security.

Welcome to “president” obama’s post racial America.

I thank God that he gave me enough grace, intelligence and common sense to see through this fraud of a man named Barrack Hussein Obama. For the rest of my life I can proudly say that I never voted for him.

Sold On A Lie

“Obamacare” was sold on a lie and passed against the wishes of the majority of Americans.

Now, in an unprecedented move, the man who will administer Medicare and Medicaid was appointed in a clearly obvious move to bypass the Constitutional provision for Legislative oversight.

You won’t be keeping your healthcare and your doctor if you like them. There’s going to be a single payer systm complete with rationing. It was sold as ”a robust public option” because that sounds so much better than death panel. However, if you listen to the words of the newly appointed head of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, you’ll see exactly where he stands on the subject.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0wnvZrOwAs

BTW, you’re born with rights that are God given. Your rights are not given to you by government. Healthcare is not a “human right”. It’s a commodity. It doesn’t matter if the government redistributes wealth to pay for the healthcare of the poor, it’s still bought and paid for. It’s still a commodity, NOT a right.

Why does this black man have such intense hatred for whites?

Ayn Rand provides the answer:

///Envy/Hatred of the Good for Being the Good///

Today, we live in the Age of Envy.

“Envy” is not the emotion I have in mind, but it is the clearest manifestation of an emotion that has remained nameless; it is the only element of a complex emotional sum that men have permitted themselves to identify.

Envy is regarded by most people as a petty, superficial emotion and, therefore, it serves as a semihuman cover for so inhuman an emotion that those who feel it seldom dare admit it even to themselves . . . . That emotion is: hatred of the good for being the good.

This hatred is not resentment against some prescribed view of the good with which one does not agree . . . . Hatred of the good for being the good means hatred of that which one regards as good by one’s own (conscious or subconscious) judgment. It means hatred of a person for possessing a value or virtue one regards as desirable.

If a child wants to get good grades in school, but is unable or unwilling to achieve them and begins to hate the children who do, that is hatred of the good. If a man regards intelligence as a value, but is troubled by self-doubt and begins to hate the men he judges to be intelligent, that is hatred of the good.

The nature of the particular values a man chooses to hold is not the primary factor in this issue (although irrational values may contribute a great deal to the formation of that emotion). The primary factor and distinguishing characteristic is an emotional mechanism set in reverse: a response of hatred, not toward human vices, but toward human virtues.

To be exact, the emotional mechanism is not set in reverse, but is set one way: its exponents do not experience love for evil men; their emotional range is limited to hatred or indifference. It is impossible to experience love, which is a response to values, when one’s automatized response to values is hatred.

More Brewer surrealness:

"Headless bodies and other immigration tall tales in Arizona

By Dana Milbank
Sunday, July 11, 2010; A13

Jan Brewer has lost her head.

The Arizona governor, seemingly determined to repel every last tourist dollar from her pariah state, has sounded a new alarm about border violence. "Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded," she announced on local television.

Ay, caramba! Those dark-skinned foreigners are now severing the heads of fair-haired Americans? Maybe they're also scalping them or shrinking them or putting them on a spike.

But those in fear of losing parts north of the neckline can relax. There's not a follicle of evidence to support Brewer's claim.

The Arizona Guardian Web site checked with medical examiners in Arizona's border counties, and the coroners said they had never seen an immigration-related beheading. I called and e-mailed Brewer's press office requesting documentation of decapitation; no reply.

Brewer's mindlessness about headlessness is just one of the immigration falsehoods being spread by Arizona politicians. Border violence on the rise? Phoenix becoming the world's No. 2 kidnapping capital? Illegal immigrants responsible for most police killings? The majority of those crossing the border are drug mules? All wrong.

This matters, because it means the entire premise of the Arizona immigration law is a fallacy. Arizona officials say they've had to step in because federal officials aren't doing enough to stem increasing border violence. The scary claims of violence, in turn, explain why the American public supports the Arizona crackdown.

Last year gave us death panels and granny killings, but compared with the nonsense justifying the immigration crackdown, the health-care debate was an evening at the Oxford Union Society.

Two months ago, the Arizona Republic published an exhaustive report that found that, according to statistics from the FBI and Arizona police agencies, crime in Arizona border towns has been "essentially flat for the past decade." For example, "In 2000, there were 23 rapes, robberies and murders in Nogales, Ariz. Last year, despite nearly a decade of population growth, there were 19 such crimes." The Pima County sheriff reported that "the border has never been more secure."

FBI statistics show violent crime rates in all of the border states are lower than they were a decade ago -- yet Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) reports that the violence is "the worst I have ever seen." President Obama justifiably asserted last week that "the southern border is more secure today than any time in the past 20 years," yet Rush Limbaugh judged the president to be "fit for the psycho ward" on the basis of that remark.

Without question, illegal immigration and Mexican drug cartels are huge problems. And there is a real danger that the alarming and growing violence in Mexico could spread north. But beyond anecdotes -- the slaying of a rancher and the shooting of a sheriff's deputy -- there is no evidence that it has.

Yet there is McCain -- second only to Brewer in wrecking Arizona tourism -- telling NBC, ABC and CNN that Phoenix is the "No. 2 kidnapping capital of the world," behind only Mexico City. "False," judged Politifact, tracing McCain's claim to a dubious report by ABC News in February 2009. Law-enforcement agencies generally don't track foreign kidnapping statistics, but experts said rates are far higher in various Central American, African and Asian countries. Reports of kidnapping in Phoenix, meanwhile, are declining.

Next, there's Brewer's claim that "the majority" of people immigrating illegally "are coming here and they're bringing drugs, and they're doing drop houses and they're extorting people and they're terrorizing the families. That is the truth." No, it isn't. The Border Patrol's Tucson Sector has apprehended more than 170,000 undocumented immigrants since Oct. 1, but only about 1,100 drug prosecutions have been filed in Arizona in that time.

The claim that illegal immigrants are behind most killings of law-enforcement personnel is also bunk. Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen claimed that "in the last few years 80 percent of our law enforcement that have been killed or wounded have been by an illegal." A Phoenix police spokesman told the Arizona Republic's E.J. Montini that the real figure for such killings is less than 25 percent, and that there are no statistics on the wounding of officers.

So what is this "terrible border security crisis" that Brewer says has only "gotten worse"? She complained recently to Fox News's Greta Van Susteren about the Obama administration's handling of the border: "They haven't did [sic] their job."

But really the person who hasn't did her job is Brewer. She should screw her head back on and start telling Americans the truth."
