Mort and McLaughlin are wrong. GOP will NOT take the Senate. Nor will it be a tie, either.

They will even have problems taking the House.

Why? Let's take Nevada for an example. With nearly 40 MILLION of outside money pouring in against Reid (14 million during the last cycle alone), when Obama came and rallied for Reid conservative estimates ranged the crowd at 9000. And that doesn't count at least 2000-5000 of Obama's foes on the left who boycotted it, but still will be voting a straight Democratic ticket (myself included.)

When Sarah Palin came to Las Vegas to rally for Angle, a mere 400 showed up. That from a headcount by a Channel 8 reporter who came right out and said her organizers were lying about it being anywhere near 1000.

That shows you more than anything else how the race is shaping up. People are probably lying to pollsters; saying they will not vote for Reid and then going ahead and voting with their heads and not voting for Angle, a certifiable nutcase from her own statements.

McLaughlin also said Hillary would be President in 2008. He was wrong then too.

All I am saying to the GOP is this: Prepare for a MASSIVE retrench, and ditch the overt fascism (slavish obeisance to Big Business a la Turtle Head and Tanboi and the Tea Party and their masters.) It will NEVER work with the American People during a Depression.

Best to go back to the hypocritical lying, saying you're AGAINST Big Business, and then doing exactly the opposite as much as possible.

It's working for Obama. For now. Of course, if he doesn't turn it around, sign some executive statements, BRING ALL THE TROOPS HOME FROM THE MIDEAST, get some immigration reform, fulfill his IMPLIED promises, and regulate some outsourcing, he WILL be a one-term President.

Honest Abe

From William Black (last effective regulator - 1980's S&L scandal) Under-reported Stories :

Mortgage frauds were overwhelmingly due to consciously fraudulent lending practices in which the CEOs of seemingly legitimate entities used accounting tricks as their “weapon of choice" to report higher profits and get bigger bonuses. (George A. Akerlof and Paul R. Romer got it right in the title to their 1993 article: Looting: The Economic Underworld of Bankruptcy for Profit.)

There has been a disgraceful lack of prosecutions which has resulted from regulators virtually ending the practice of making criminal referrals and the pathetic March 2007 "partnership" that the FBI entered into with the Mortgage Bankers Association (the trade association of the "perps") that led the FBI and the Department of Justice to (implicitly) define out of existence fraud by the lenders (and to conceive of them as the "victim" -- which they are, but only of their controlling officers). Bush administration attorney general Michael Mukasey in June 2008 notoriously refused to create a national task force against mortgage fraud based on his claim that mortgage fraud was analogous to "white collar street crime."

"Echo" epidemics of fraud set off by the primary epidemic of accounting “control fraud". The fraud designed by CEOs in turn kicked off an epidemic of fraud among loan brokers and appraisers. Reporters should explore the concept of the Gresham's-style dynamic in which bad ethics were a competitive advantage and drove good ethics out of the marketplace.

And they want to hike our interest rate? Shouldn't they make these banks operate correctly first? With an influx of cash, they'll be polluting Washington w/election money, and buying up real estate for a song, to be sold later after inflation, and in the meantime to large families of Octomom Mexicans.

NEW YORK : Help to clean up your city. There is integrity in Banking and Accounting. Where are the Hassidic Jews when you need them? Banking can be a boon to mankind if done properly, and a bane if corrupted. Improper accounting, and your job is not banking, but comedy in California.

Exposing the banksters is fine. The Macdaddy knows how to do it when he takes record sums of moolah from Goldman Sachs etc, then spiels away with, "Hey, folks, they drove y'all into the ditch, now we intend to get you out, despite their buddies the G.O.P.!"

But what good does it do the nation when the Dems (and some Republicans) get off scot free for Barney Franking the banks into making criminally stupid loans to get mortgages for the socialists' clients? And even a Carl Paladino in New York Gubernatorial idiotically lets them de-rail him from exposing STATUS CUOmo as the Godfather of the sinister Subprime Mortgages that poisoned the banks and helped drive them into covering their behinds with these criminal derivatives etc? What good is it to chop off just one head of a two-headed monster? Or have even the "aware" now become good crypto-Marxists, ready to punish the "boobyoisie" and pardon the state's parasite pols who instigated the calamity? Administer justice to the banksters, and not to the equally guilty criminals in Government? Forget it. That's just another road to Marxville for Dummies.

Tom Tancredo Needs our Help To Win In the Colorado Governor Race !!!

Tell the Maes supporters to vote for Tancredo and he will be able to win.

Hickenlooper-D is polling at 45%, Tancredo-American-Constitution-Party at 40%, and Maes-R has 10-12%.

The people of Colorado mistreated Tancredo in the primary, He has 10 years as a US Congressman from Colorados 6th district. He grew up and lived in Colorado since 1945.

Dan Maes moved to Colorado sometime after 1985, and has never ran for or held a public office before.

Wew must try to appeal to the 10-12% hold out; Tea Party, Republican, and Independent Maes supporters-voters, to stop the Democrat from winning and to vote in a strong opponent of the Clintonistas-Obamanation regime.

Tancredo on Barack Obama

In a speech given at a campaign event for Colorado Senate candidate Ken Buck on July 8, 2010, Tancredo said of President Barack Obama, "...the greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life; everything we believe in. The greatest threat to the country that our founding fathers put together is the man that's sitting in the White House today."

On July 22, 2010, in an editorial in the Washington Times, Tancredo said that Congress should bring impeachment charges against President Obama.

I just saw Tancredo on Fox news he seemed like a very stable normal person.

He's not a major proponent of pot legalization as some of his opponents are trying to label him with. He just said that decriminalizing it for adults so that they can obtain/use it in the privacy of their own home, and heavily-crimnalizing it for adults who sell or give it to minors, might help to lower the staggering costs-SSS of the massive amounts of crime related to its,

illegal smuggling, distribution, the resulting law enforcement involvement, routines, programs, investigators, special task forces, State and Federal, Attorney Generals, prosecutors, legal-aid lawyers, Judges, courts, prisons, against adults who use it.

In other words his position is sort of like alot of people in the Tea Partys, position. That the war on drugs like most massive government programs is a miserable self-perpetuating bureaucratic-failure, designed to or serving the purpose of keeping the 100's of billions of S's costing behemoth going, for the purpose of keeping the money flowing in all directions.

As crime increases and the jails are filling up because it's illegal for adults to legally purchase and use the stuff. Tancredo said that if the war on drugs for adults was dropped and re-designed to protect the minors and everyone else for that matter, that their should be heavy penalties, fines, to anyone who sells or gives any kind of drugs to a minor.

He basicly said that those who use drugs had to be held responsible to keep any kind of detrimental effects, behavior, etc., within their own homes, to themselves, not while; driving, on the job, using machinery, in public, etc.

And he wasn't even sounding at all like he was pushing this, he was asked about it and just explained it fully, effectively, but in a very mild manner.

He gave his reason for voting for TARP, he felt that something had to done to save the US bankingf and economic system from crashing. Almost everyone else voted for it too, and most of the money has been paid back, so he shouldn't lose anyones vote over it, especially when confronted with the alternaive, the Democrat opponent in the race.

He wasn't pushy at all in any of his answers. He wasn't asked about illegal-aliens, it was a short interview.

He came off as very; calm, amiable, reasonable, easy to talk to, get answers out of, or work with.

During a 2005 radio interview on Orlando talk-radio station WFLA AM 540, Tancredo responded to a questioner asking about the hypothetical U.S. response to a nuclear attack on U.S. cities by al-Qaeda, by saying that one possible response would be to retaliate by "taking out" Muslim holy sites (specifically, Mecca) if it were clearly proven that Islamic terrorists were behind such an attack. Several days later, in an interview on CNN together with James Zogby, Tancredo said that the attack was mentioned merely as a hypothetical response and insisted that there was nothing for which he should apologize.

During the Republican Presidential Debate broadcast on Fox on May 15, 2007, Tancredo made a statement in passing that the root cause of Islamic terrorism is “a dictate of their religion.” In September 2007 Tancredo defended his remarks: "I still believe it is something we must consider as a possible deterrent because at the present time there are no negative consequences that would accrue to the people who commit a crime such as a nuclear, chemical or biological attack."

During a July 31, 2007 townhall meeting in Iowa, Tancredo said that a threat to bomb Mecca and Medina was "the only thing I can think of" that could deter a nuclear terrorist attack. This statement drew substantial criticism from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, as well as State Department spokesman, George-Bush-RINO-Saudi-Iraqi-Iran-OPEC-man Tom Casey, who stated that "To somehow suggest that an appropriate response to terrorism would be to attack sites that are holy and sacred to more than a billion people throughout the world is just not inline with the; George-Bush-RINO-Saudi-Iraqi-Iran-OPEC-man, way to go/"

Gay Marriage

Said Tancredo in September 2007, "You have to remember that we are always just one kooky judge away from actually having homosexual marriage forced on all the rest of us, because of the [full faith and credit] clause in the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, we need, we absolutely have to have, a constitutional amendment that defines marriage." He is in full support of the Federal Marriage Amendment. Due to his numerous anti-gay stances, he has received ratings of 7% from the ACLU, 0% from the HRC, and 19% from the NAACP.

Sonia Sotomayor Nomination

Tancredo became one of the outspoken conservative opponents to the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. On May 28, 2009, he made an appearance on CNN to voice his opposition and claimed that Sotomayor was a racist. When CNN’s Rick Sanchez asked him if Sotomayor was a racist, Tancredo replied “certainly her words would indicate that that is the truth”. He then compared the Hispanic-American advocacy group La Raza to the KKK by saying "it’s a Latino KKK without the hoods or the nooses".

On February 4, 2010, Tancredo spoke at the National Convention for the Tea Party movement where he told attendees that Barack Obama won because of "people who could not even spell the word ’vote’ or say it in English". He then proposed "a civics literacy test" as a prerequisite to voting. These remarks were criticized by the Democratic Colorado House Speaker Terrance Carroll and the Southern Poverty Law Center's research director Heidi Beirich. Tancredo has denied the charge that his remarks were aimed at African Americans.

Tom Tancredo is perhaps best known for his opposition to illegal immigration. Tancredo founded the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus in May 1999. He served as its Chairman until January 2007, when he turned the chairmanship over to Brian Bilbray.

Tancredo has called for halting illegal immigration, and a three-year moratorium on all legal immigration to allow those immigrants already in the country to be assimilated.

Tancredo's has staunchly supported tightening immigration requirements from Islamic countries. On September 18, 2008, Tancredo introduced H. R. 6975, the Jihad Prevention Act, which would require aliens to attest that they will not advocate installing a Sharia law system in the United States as a condition for admission, and for other purposes. Aliens failing to make such an attestation would be ineligible for admission. Further, the visa of any alien advocating the installation of a Sharia law system in the United States would be subject to revocation.

Tancredo criticized the Denver Public Library system for purchasing reading materials written in Spanish and for offering space for classes to be held for these library users, on the grounds that putting Spanish-speakers in a 'linguistic ghetto' would delay their integration into American society.

Tancredo sponsored legislation to eliminate H-1B visas for temporary workers in 2005.

Tancredo was the sponsor of a successful, bi-partisan amendment to a Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill that would withhold federal emergency services funds from 'sanctuary cities'.

On July 30, 2007, Tancredo "criticized Congressional Democrats for eliminating a requirement that anyone applying for Medicaid and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) services provide proof of U.S. citizenship". According to Tancredo, "the new Democrat plan would raise taxes and make it easier for illegal aliens to obtain taxpayer-funded medical benefits".

Tancredo has made it a point in all of his public speeches to differentiate between those who enter the United States legally and those who come illegally. He frequently attends naturalization ceremonies to support new citizens for "doing it the right way".

In 2006, Tancredo published In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security through Joseph Farah's WND Books in Nashville, Tennessee. The volume focuses on American cultural identity and his proposals to remedy what he conteds to be major flaws in the immigration system.

Conflict With RINO Party Leadership

Tancredo's outspoken advocacy for immigration reform, and particularly his criticism of President George W. Bush's border security controls, reportedly made him persona non grata in the Bush White House.[89] According to Tancredo, he and Bush's political adviser, Karl Rove, got into a "screaming match" after Tancredo claimed that "if the nation suffered another attack at the hands of terrorists able to skirt immigration laws, the blood of the people killed" would be on Bush's and Congress’ hands.

In an interview, Tancredo said his falling out with the White House has lasted. "One reason I am persona non grata at the White House is not just because of immigration... but because I refuse to support him on his trade policy, his education policy, Medicare and prescription drugs initiatives.... Here was a Republican Congress increasing government to an extent larger than it had been increased since Medicare had come into existence."

Tancredo reported that his career in Congress was threatened by the leadership because of his stances. "I was called into Tom Delay’s office because I was supporting Republican challengers to Republican incumbents. I had a group called Team America that went out and did that. He called me and said to me, 'You’re jeopardizing your career in this place by doing these things.' And I said, 'Tom, out of all the things you can threaten with me that is the least effective because I do not look at this place as a career.'"

Tancredo had a 90% + Conservative record for 2008, 100% + for 2007, and a 97.2 + average for his 10 years in the US Congress:

In fairness I will start to do a search to see if there's any reason not to vote for Tom Tancredo. I suspect that I'll be reporting back that he has an all-Conservative type record, and that these; leftist-liberal-Democrat, liberal-moderate-Republican-RINO attacks against him, are at best, inaccurate-exaggerated representations of the related stories that they are taken from.

Vote for Tom Tancredo To Win In the Colorado Governor Race !!!

"Vote for Tom Tancredo To Win In the Colorado Governor Race !!!" - FR

I've been to Colorado, many times. I have Hispanic friends and people I used to work with there. I know how big the Hispanic community is there, even in rural areas.

I wouldn't bet on Tancredo for a second.

No wonder the Obots and Soros socialists hate Tom Tancredo's Constitutional guts. It's bad enough he prefers legal immigrants to their tsunami of illegals and welfare moochers. He also favors American values over Jihad and Sharia, and dares to say so.....

"Tancredo's has staunchly supported tightening immigration requirements from Islamic countries. On September 18, 2008, Tancredo introduced H. R. 6975, the Jihad Prevention Act, which would require aliens to attest that they will not advocate installing a Sharia law system in the United States as a condition for admission, and for other purposes.

When the race war you and yours are gunning for starts, Gringo, are you going to be in the front line?

Why is it the warmongers never fight themselves, but only instigate and then revel in their Haliburton porfolios?

1. The majority of America is never going to break up families by deportation, anchor babies are here to stay, you racists will never change the constitution, "amnesty" or a path to citizenship is a certainty.

2. Work on the ONE thing you can get the majority of Americans to agree on; a Wall.

That's the only thing you'll find a consensus for. You want to slow down Hispanic influence in elections and keep your sad racist Tea Party and the fascist GOP from Death's door?

Get going on a WALL.

And use the right arguments. CONTROLLING immigration and allowing each wave time to assimilate properly. In other words, becoming conservative and stupid fascist GOP tools.

Like they were during Bush, before the Tea Party made them the Nazi scapegoats of the month.

"When the race war you and yours are gunning for starts, Gringo, are you going to be in the front line?"

------------------

Uh...........Newsflash!

The race war started over 60 years ago and it has been and continues to be ruthlessly directed at the White Race. The question is: Are whites EVER going to start fighting back in an effective and meaningful way or are they going acquiesce and sheepishly accept their planned fate of extinction?

PS

If whites are relying on the Republican Party to IN ANY WAY save them, they're sorely mistaken. The GOP's policies are just as genocidal towards the white race as the Dem's.

"Are whites EVER going to start fighting back in an effective and meaningful way" - DJ


I answered that in my original post, DJ. Most people of caucasian descent in this country are not racist against Hispanics, actually find more than a whole lot of them very attractive, and don't want to break up their anchor baby families sending them home.

However, if you do explain to most Americans on both sides of the issue, simply and strongly as I've done over the years, that unless we build a wall, stop the nonstop wave long enough for the present one to assimilate completely, yes indeed Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and all points south are going to look like the worst parts of Tijuana from sea to shining sea.

Most Americans wouldn't want this. SO eventually, they will agree we need a wall. Which will take troops to man. That additionally solves the Mideast problem, by bringing them all home to build and then man the wall. Not to mention millions of folks being put to work by the largest public works project in US history. And the resulting cities that will spring up right by the border, protected by new US military bases along the border.

It will work, you CAN convince Democrats and even legal US citizens of Hispanic descent that it is needed and will work. But the racism has to end. It has nothing to do with racism, but preserving BOTH cultures. And preserving the middle class status of Middle American, and sending the largest possible FU*CK YOU to the fascist capitalists who want slave labor here in the US.

(Continued on next post)

xbjllb

(continued from previous post)

Open the wall every ten years and let a certain number in, and that's that. We did it with the Irish, the Italians, the Russians, the Eastern European Jews, even the Swedes. Each wave of those immigrations STOPPED DEAD at a certain time, whether it was by circumstances or legal means. The Hispanic one just doesn't stop because of open borders and geography, and the end result is they duplicate their culture here. You don't get a melting pot, you get an invasion and occupation.

So the wall is inevitable, and coming, and comparing it to the Berlin wall is just plain stupid on both sides: that was a prison wall to keep an oppressed people from getting OUT.

This wall is a fortress wall to control the numbers of oppressed people trying to get in. And giving each wave a time and chance to fully assimilate.

And I would use the same 10-year plan for Islamic immigrants too. It takes time to become an American. It doesn't happen overnight.

LISTEN to me. I'm the only progressive liberal with the key to getting this issue resolved, permanently.

DJ

"But the racism has to end." -- xbjllb

------

Indeed. For that to happen the Government must stop practicing racial discrimination against whites - especially middle to lower-class white men. And, of course, if the MSM, entertainment, and advertising industry etc. would cease and desist their blatantly hateful racist practice of demonizing and degrading whites of European origin, i.e., Western/Euro-Christian Culture.. that would be a big help too.

But the Government, MSM, entertainment industry aren't going to reverse their anti-white agenda. Nor are the global capitalists going to stop paying off politicians for the purpose of continuing policies which result in millions of third-worlders, per year, flooding into OUR country thus providing them "cheap labor." And as we both know, "cheap labor" is nothing more than a variant of slave labor. A case can be made that the equitable and monetary distinctions between the two are only marginal.

So what to do? Vote for the Dems? The Goopers? HAH!

In my estimation, we the people, are powerless and the situation is hopeless.

IMHO, only God/Jesus can walk us out of this mess...

.

xbjllb

The entertainment world is the way it is because, instead of a Berry Gordy elevating black culture with acts like the Supremes and the Temptations and huge orchestral backings and absolute almost classical pop masterpieces and classy live acts, you have complete as*sholes like Rick Rubin and crew completely ghettoizing black pop with gangsta rap and destroying the class of black pop culture right along with it, starting as early as 1986. Even the best of hip hop is demoralizing and desperate and whored out to Big Liquor and makes you want to open a vein after ten minutes of the top 40.

As far as Jesus/God walking anyone out of this mess, I think it's fairly clear that He's going to yank the small handful of true Christians and good people of all religions that opposed the war off in a flash, and then hurl asteroids and richly deserved plagues at the rest before they can all kill each other and destroy the planet right along with each other once all the good are gone.

Then we come back with Him and start anew, minus the haters and hate profiteers. ALL OF THEM. Including their god Lucifer.

xbjllb

DJ, there are just as many black assembly line workers in Detroit screwed over by fascist Big Business outsourcing as there are white. Maybe more. We're all in this together... the assault on the MIddle Class and Unions and attempt to cram them into the ranks of the truly poor KNOWS NO COLOR, NO RACE.

As to who to vote for? The choice couldn't be simpler. On one hand you have a group PROUD of being whores for Big Business. Who tell you straight to your face that they exist solely for them, and that THAT agenda is what is good for America. Despite being exactly what's destroyed it since Reagan. Not to mention the hellhole trap in the Mideast they got us into FOR THE PROFIT OF THEIR CORPORATE MASTERS.

On the other you have a group that at least is TRYING to fight and regulate Big Business. Which group do YOU think has even a chance in Hell of ending outsourcing? Which group do YOU think has even a chance in Hell of building a wall, by convincing enough people in the country to want to do it, without merely stirring up hate to gain power and profit from the issue and never do anything about it (the way the GOP does EVERY major social issue)?

Is the party of Big Business going to go against their corporate masters who demand slave labor from the south to EVER build a wall?

HA.

You've got a lesser evil, and a greater evil. Thank God that there IS a lesser evil to fight for. Even on the abortion issue; what's so wonderful about going back to the days of back alley coat hanger abortions? More white babies to fight the onslaught?

Don't believe it for a second. Women will go back to doing what they always did, and only the young and uneducated and mostly white will be dying in back alleys. JUST like before.
