Republicans vow to cut spending repeal health care bill, John Boehner, New Speaker of the House

From the Chicago Tribune November 5, 2010.

“Victorious at the polls, congressional Republicans asserted their newfound political strength on Thursday, vowing to seek a quick $100 billion in federal spending cuts and force repeated votes on the repeal of President Barack Obama’s prized health care overhaul.

At the White Houses, Obama said his administration was ready to work across party lines in a fresh attempt to “focus on the economy and jobs” as well as attack waste in government. In a show of bipartisanship, he invited top lawmakers to the White House at mid-month, and the nation’s newly elected governors two weeks later.

Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, in line to become the new speaker of the House, brushed aside talk that the No. 1 GOP goal was to make sure Obama is defeated at the polls in 2012. “That’s Senator McConnell’s statement and his opinion,” he told ABC, referring to the party’s leader in the Senate and adding that his own goals included cutting spending and creating jobs.”

“Many House Republicans campaigned on a platform of cutting government spending to levels in effect in 2008, before enactment of an economic stimulus bill and other increases that Democrats passed. Rep. Jerry Lewis of California, the senior Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, notified Democrats during the day that GOP lawmakers will try and implement the cuts when Congress considers the spending bill needed to keep most agencies running for the next eight months. The estimated savings total $100 billion.

“The unmistakable message sent by the American people on Tuesday is that they are justifiably angry at Washington. They want Congress to cut spending,” wrote Lewis, who faces an internal challenge in his attempt to become chairman of the panel next year.

At a news conference on Wednesday, the president signaled he was ready to jettison his campaign-long insistence that tax cuts be extended for earners at incomes up to $250,000 but be allowed to expire for higher-income people.”

  2. CW, I can only hope that the Repubs do what they say ,because i think we will be right back where we left off.I also HOPE they impeach his ass.

  3. Trudy………………………………
    Politicians often consider themselves privileged people, and to an extent,no matter how badly they despise each other,or how right it might be it takes an awful lot to give a politician cause to bring impeachment action against a fellow politician. This often even extends through differences in political faith as well. This amounts to a flagrant violation of the public trust vested in these politicians, but no matter the party involvced they have little remorse. Sadly we can only vote this sort of politician out of office. To give him/her cause to bring impeachment action against a fellow politician these people often need to have their feet put to the fire so to speak. In spite of this some will still drag their feet. Case in point is Slick Willy. He deliberately lied to and otherwise mislead a Federal Grand Jury regarding his WH closet adventure. It isn’t what he done with Monica,it is the fact that he supremely violated his oath of office by lying to Congress,and the Federal Grand Jury. Impeachment was justified in his case ,and rightfully should have been carried out. But thanks to Senators like Charles Schumer Leahy, Burbin, Kennedy, and others he was only censured.This action was a clear violation of the public trust by those Senators.Soetoro has perpetrated violations the magnitude of which extend much further than those of Slick Willy. He is known to be a usurper of the POTUS office to begin with.This makes his crimes against the American people that much more despicable. In reality he is NOTHING more than a CHEAP LITTLE CHICAGO CRIMINAL WHO COULD BE ARRESTED THIS MINUTE BY ANY PROPERLY PREPARED SHERRIFF. Yet no Federal Judge seems to possess the INTESTINAL FORTITUDE, to do the right thing. They are all on Soetoro’s payroll.

  4. Trudy…………………………….
    That is why we need to do everything we can to guarantee that he is NOT re elected for a second term. he now outwardly displays his willingness to cooperate with the GOP,and the public. I believe that once again he LIES to us. Now he wants to find ways to bypass the House altogether. Does that sound like a POTUS who is interested in BI PARTISAN POLITICS?

  6. CW……………………………….
    It would seem to me that Resko’s incarceration would not necessarily legally prevent him from being subpoenaed to testify at Blago’s new trial. This should happen.

  7. SOON IT WILL BE PELOSI A.D.! har de har har

  8. Good Morning! I listened to Rush’s comments yesterday about Marco Rubio and eligibility. Does anyone know if Marco’s parents were naturalized citizens at the time of his birth? If they were not, I will not be able to support any push to get him on a future Presidential ticket. I would love to support him in a few years but the Constitution matters.
    He seems great!

  9. zach…………………………………………..
    Doesn’t NBC mean a person who was born to two parents who were themselves natural citizens of the US.

  10. ZACH……………………………………..
    I like Rubio too, and if anybody knows what a hard assed life is he probably does indeed. But I am wondering if he could ever be qualified to be POTUS. If his parents were born in Cuba then they would not have been born on US soil,and they wouldn’t necessarily be US citizens. If they are naturalised citizens it would seem that it would go against Rubio as a contender for the POTUS.

  11. OldSalt79 – I believe that the courts would likely support a definition of Natural Born Citizen vis-a-vis the 14th Amendment to include a person born to parents who were naturalized at the time of the potential President’s birth. However, with the current state of our judicial system and technology advancements (spermbanks, in vitro fertilization) , who knows what they would say and how much money would go in their pockets to say this or that.

  12. The courts need to get involved to have a real discussion about the meaning of the term natural born citizen, the concerns underlying its inclusion in the Constitution, what degree of conflicted allegiances is acceptable, etc.

    Leave politics out of it and look at the consequences envisioned by our Founders.

  13. Obama’s first 2 years in the office certainly points to the wisdom of the Founders.

  14. zach……………………………….
    The graphs and charts seem to say that yes there will be considerable drag upon our GDP. But in considering what life was like during the 1930s for people, I would think that we are in for something that might be parallel with the 1930s. We know that the depression actually extended clear up to the beginning of WW2. Yet during the 1930s there was some SMALL BUSINESS start up throughout the US. It would seem then that we would not necessarily see complete loss of GPD, rather it would be considerably reduced for many years,perhaps decades. Probably at least 10 years or perhaps even 15,or even 20 years. It would seem that for us to return to what was a normal GPD a few years ago we would have to have the economy that existed immediately prior to the fiscal meltdown. I personally don’t see this happening in the near future at all. I personally think that it will require several decades for us to see any substantial GDP gain year over year. This roughly translates to a LOT of people OUT of a job for a long time. I tend to follow the belief that massive public works programs should be started. During the 1930s we had the same. We also had the WPA,and the CCC.. Both helped. WPA was responsible for a number of dams having been built, throughout the US,along with infrastructure like highways, public parks,etc. This is NOT the complete answer,rather it was only part of the recovery from the great depression. The depression actually extended clear p to the onset of WW2. At this point most of our indudtry was Nationalised. At this point war production began, money began to move again,and at the end of WW2 we saw a post war growth that was unmatched before that point.

    Old Salt, the bastard needs to be declared ineligible so there is no new precedent set for who is eligible to the presidency. It says “natural born Citizen”, it needs to be enforced or were going to end up with Bin Ladden’s son as our next president.

    Do you remember when John F. Kennedy was asked by a newsman, “Why do you want to run for President?’ And his answer – “Because that is where all the power is!”

    And Zach concerning Rubio. I was curious why Hannity was always pushing Rubio for President when he knew his parents were Cuban and then it hit me. HE IS DARING THE DEMS TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THIS AND THEN WHAMO – WHAT ABOUT YOUR BOY???

    I too believe that specific definitions need to be incorporated into our Constitution. If for no other reason than to eliminate the so called INTERPRETATION that we CONSTANTLY hear from the A##holes who would try to turn the Constitution into a PLAYGROUND for their LUNATIC BELIEFS.

  19. FS and OldSalt79 – The BOPAC Administration is corrupt to its core and cannot be allowed to steal another 4 years of America’s future. There’s years of work to undo the damage caused by Obama and his friends and hopefully the new House will stand tall and buy time until America can elect more people with principles that encourage a meritocracy (Republican, Independent, Democrat (if there are any left)).

    The report said the devastating attacks on Mumbai two years ago, which were launched by militants who arrived by boat, prompted the naval presence.

    “We have obtained a copy of the talking points memorandum put out by a lawyer for the Congressional Research Service to the Members of Congress back in April 2009 as to what to tell their constituents when they write to the Members of Congress and ask questions about Obama’s eligibility. Now we know why all the answers coming back to constituents sounded like they were written by the same person and were full of the same obfuscations and half truths and non-truths. This copy was obtained via the diligent and persistent efforts of a patriot going by the ID of “Bob1943″ who obtained it from a Senator’s office. Now we know the talking points the DC insiders and politicians have been groomed with to feed to their constituents who have been asking questions about the eligibility issues. Thank you “Bob1943″.

  33. Good morning all….

    Everyone seems to be talking about IMPEACH, IMPEACH…..

    May I respectfully remind CW’s readers that before a president can be impeached…he must first be declared LEGALLY IN OFFICE….

    In order to IMPEACH Barky…he must first be proven a LEGAL POTUS….otherwise everything he has signed, every appointment he has made, every treaty he has put in place, every act he has committed, every breath he has taken, will be considered LEGAL in the eyes of the law….

    IMPEACHMENT is not the way to go as far as getting rid of this USURPER.

    If our Constitution means anything ( and it sure does too me, and 6 out of ten other Americans) then he must be declared illegal and American must “bite the bullet”, jail the usurper, absorb the shock wave, and vow to never, never, never let this happen again.

    I think in the past 2 years, our country has witnessed what happens when someone foreign to America is placed in a position of authority of which he is not legally qualified. This must never happen again.

    As far as Marco Rubio….As much as I like that young man and what he is saying…I do not think he can ever become president because of the “nature born ” clause in the Constitution. That’s too bad, he would make a great president “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. However, I think Rubio knows he can never be POTUS and accepts that Constitutional fact….

    Who ever posted that the Supreme Court MUST take this question up and make a clear firm ruling on exactly what a “natural-born” citizen is, I would concur. Had they done so before the last general election, our country would not be in the”pickle” it’s now in. In my eyes, this SCOTUS has been the worse court I can ever remember. To compound the problem, Obama has added two ladies that are TOTALLY unqualified to this court.

    Hopefully, time will change this and our country will regain it’s sanity…otherwise we ( rich, poor, and all stages in between) will be standing in the bread lines and the great depression of the 20’s will look like kindergarten recess time.

    Till then, we all look to this new Congress expecting them to effect the HOPE and CHANGE America has been waiting for.

  34. I believe that every Republican who was just elected AND those who are sitting Republicans, KNOW and fully understand that we are all watching them and EXPECT them to keep their words AND to always remember WHO got them elected!

  35. Aside from the fact that I believe this president suffers from mental illness as classified in the DSM IV, he is now in a very dangerous situation. Where he might once have been able to indulge his narcissism, today that same over-indulgence could get him impeached.

    He has denigrated the country to the extent that risk-taking in one direction is no longer a viable option for him — mainly because he is a lame duck and the most recent Nationwide vote was a vote against his unilateral mandate.

    As Mr. Larry Kudlow rightly puts forth when he speaks of the “newly elected Senate Democrats in favor of the FULL Bush” tax cuts, the emphasis is on the FULL –> F.U.L.L. –> meaning unadulterated by typical Democrat B.S.

    Therefore, to stay in the game, if you will, Obama must go against his inbred autocratic arrogance and “give” something. In this instance, the Bush tax cuts, however, that is qualified to read: UNEQUIVOCALLY the Bush tax cuts. But this is a child ruling as president, and he was NEVER taught to GIVE ANYTHING. Bush is a name he hates. A policy he hates. Obama is a child who was denied nothing and made up for it in Chicago gangsterism later on in life. Albeit a sign of weakness to the newly formed aristocracy of DC, but is Obama’s to own all the same.

    Now dining with five star traveling chefs and nuclear passwords somehow just doesn’t feel the same anymore.

  36. Prairie,

    I hope the CIA and DOD have enough sense to take the nuclear football away from the INSANE bo before they ship him off to Indonesia.

    Meanwhile, a team of ex-CIA officers are traveling the globe assembling a dossier of documents on Obama’s past, including his education, passport, travel, and residency records. The team has scoured Kenya, Indonesia, Pakistan, and other countries collecting documents that are not already mantained in the CIA’s own files on Obama’s past. There is a possibility, according to WMR’s sources, that any “smoking gun” documents may be released while Obama is in Asia in order to elicit a public and, perhaps, irrational enough response from the president to prompt the public to begin raising questions about Obama’s suitability for office. Such an incident would make it easier for Biden to begin the succession process that was previously considered when President Richard Nixon was drinking heavily and taking prescription medication during the final days of his administration, twice during the Ronald Reagan administration — after the attempted assassination and in 1987 when he demonstrated early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease, and during the Bill Clinton administration, when Clinton’s self-destructive sexual antics had Vice President Al Gore considering taking similar steps

  37. RMin NC……………………………………
    I am wondering if the fact that Soetoro WAS sworn into office,(although in secrecy) wouldn’t the fact that Chief Justice Roberts executed the swearing in carry enough legality to make impeachment a legal tool against him. I would tend to think that this fact alone would make impeachment possible.

  38. The 2012 senate elections should be very interesting. There are 21 dem senators up for re-election, 2 independent senators (who caucus with the dems) and 10 pubs up for re-election. The dems could take a HUGE whoppin in 2012 if they don’t cooperate with the newly elected pubs in the house. Should be a very interesting 2 years coming up! I say they should all be thrown out and replaced with solid constitutional based non-partisan but strongly conservative candidates. This list is from Wikipedia.

The team has scoured Kenya, Indonesia, Pakistan, and other countries collecting documents that are not already mantained in the CIA’s own files on Obama’s past. There is a possibility, according to WMR’s sources, that any “smoking gun” documents may be released while Obama is in Asia in order to elicit a public and, perhaps, irrational enough response from the president to prompt the public to begin raising questions about Obama’s suitability for office. Such an incident would make it easier for Biden to begin the succession process that was previously considered when President Richard Nixon was drinking heavily and taking prescription medication during the final days of his administration, twice during the Ronald Reagan administration — after the attempted assassination and in 1987 when he demonstrated early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease, and during the Bill Clinton administration, when Clinton’s self-destructive sexual antics had Vice President Al Gore considering taking similar steps

  41. It is way beyond time to Prosecute. No one is above the law.

  42. Free Speech and Oldsalt,
    Don’t miss the importance of the words used by Madsen… a team of ex- CIA. The current CIA and DOD have blood on their hands. Hell, everyone has blood on their hands why impeachment is the only option left to them.

  43. Free Speech……………..

    It would seem that Soetoro’s XO which effectively hides his personal documents would have to at least be temporarily overriden by the Federal Courts. There would have to be some sort of instrument in place to legally allow the circumvention of the original XO, If this is the case then Hawaii can now be FORCED to comply with a court order for a CERTIFIED COPY OF the oreiginal long form BC. If they try to supply a CERTIFICATION OF LIVE BIRTH then it would seem that this would be a pretty meaningful admission that no long form BC exists,and in all probability he was actually born in Kenya,and also implies that he might not even BE a citizen of the US. His ongoing lack of knowledge of basic parameters regarding even elementary knowledge of the US screams ….. foul! Most kids even many preschoolers know that there is only 50 states. Not 57.,as he verbally expressed in an interview with George Steffanopoulous. Says a lot!.

    If Cubans are automatically U.S. citizens when stepping on the soil here, not like illegals coming through the border portholes, then isn’t Rubio natural born??

    He states he hesitates campaigning on immigration issues when Cubans get away with this behavior merely ‘getting off the boat’ so to speak….this is paraphrased from an article I read.

    So, parents are citizens as he was born in Florida after they arrived?

    Corrections welcome.

    “Trudy………………………………
    Politicians often consider themselves privileged people, and to an extent,no matter how badly they despise each other,or how right it might be it takes an awful lot to give a politician cause to bring impeachment action against a fellow politician. This often even extends through differences in political faith as well. This amounts to a flagrant violation of the public trust vested in these politicians, but no matter the party involvced they have little remorse. Sadly we can only vote this sort of politician out of office.”

    That is why we need to do everything we can to guarantee that he is NOT re elected for a second term. he now outwardly displays his willingness to cooperate with the GOP,and the public. I believe that once again he LIES to us. Now he wants to find ways to bypass the House altogether. Does that sound like a POTUS who is interested in BI PARTISAN POLITICS?

    Old Salt, the bastard needs to be declared ineligible so there is no new precedent set for who is eligible to the presidency. It says “natural born Citizen”, it needs to be enforced or were going to end up with Bin Ladden’s son as our next president.
    !!!!!!!
    Only if he is found ‘ineligible’ can all the decrees, executive orders, and laws be found null and void this man and his ineligible administration has forced on this nation.
    And only these findings will place him in jail; or as with other nations, when discovering a ‘coup’, hung!!

    ***********************************
    GORDO, thanks immensely for that post.

    Folks, we can discuss the eligibility factor ad infinitum, but if you read the above memo (I did a great deal of it, but not all, due to time limitations) you will understand that there is NEVER going to be a judicial decision as to O’s lack of eligibility. So we are just wasting time and effort in thinking so.

    As far as pushing the ineligibility rather than impeachment, it is NOT going to happen, imho. Impeachment is not looking good either, simply because, as FS pointed out, the Repubs don’t want to be the ones to mess with 2012 and most likely have to deal with another more electable Dem presidential candidate.

    So what’s left? Prairie’s post re. Madsen’s inside scoop seems to indicate that the Dems themselves will “take care” of the “problem”. That would please the Repubs very much, don’t you think? O would be “out” and Repubs’ hands were not be dirtied. Just my own private theory………?!?

    What criminal charges could/would O face? We know he is guilty of more than most can count, but will he ever be charged? Does anyone have a crystal ball? I will shut up before my mouth before it gets washed out with soap. LOL

    Obama Is Going to Try to Get START TREATY Passed During Lame Duck
    Session

    (excerpt)
    Obama says he wants the treaty passed by the lame duck Senate so that we will “send a strong signal to Russia that we’re serious about reducing nuclear arsenals.”  What he’s actually doing is signaling his profound weakness by trying to ram a bad treaty through the senate before there is a chance for serious deliberation.
    The table is set for the next big battle against the Obama agenda.

  66. Gordo……………………………….
    The library of congress paper is all well and good but there is a trump card which happens to be the right bower. It is called the Constitution, and to date I believe that it is still a valid instrument. That is I have not yet heard that it has been repealed. The lawyers can sit and read 100,000 words of Common Law or whatever, but they cannot otherwise trump or circumvent the Constitution. To do so is only an excersize in idiocy. Yes Soetoro and his SLIMEY friends,and lawyers have CONTRIVED what in their addeled minds is their translation of the law. Notice I have said TRANSLATION. You can write endless pages which INTERPRET,and otherwise TRANSLATE existing laws. You can write endless pages that UP is DOWN, or right is left yet all you have is NOTHING after you have run out of ink, and dulled your feather. Until the Constitution is somehow repealed it will be the source of our laws. Not necessarily the Library of Congress or the RESEARCH entity. The Constitution was scribed a very long time ago,and one thing is certain it has survived to this point in time,and with out a doubt will continue to survive .The attempts to get around the Consttution, or altering it’s meaning are getting bolder and bolder. One reason for this is that the people questioning it have become DUMBER,AND DUMBER. I would doubt if many of the alleged scholars of today could even begin to match wits with those who scribed the Constitution. It was founded out of hands on experience, and literary expertise. Perhaps todays children need nto get a little HANDS ON experience before they try to TRANSLATE the meaning of the Constitution. A few months back Free Speech showed me how uninformed I was regarding our Constitution. An awful lot of years has passed since I last looked at it, which was in the 5th grade,in 1943. I either forgot much of it,and even did not understand the meaning of some of it. It was required reading at the little country school that I attended to the eighth grade from which I then went on to high school. Yet today I still agree with those who founded,it, and find myself angered by those who fancy themselves as God, and use this document as a playground upon which to scribble their lunatic invective. They will someday become senior citizens, and hopefully by then they will have translated the fact that the Constitution is a document which does not need TRANSLATION,or definition by anyone. That is how strong my faith in the instrument is. My present health problems have slowed me down with regard to rereading it,but it is my intention to finish reading ,and understanding it.

    Senior EPA Analyst: Government “Doing a Cover Up” Regarding Dispersants, Trying to Reassure the Public Instead of Doing Honest Scientific Testing

    “The purpose of the test they developed is to make the public confident, not whether the seafood was safe or not.

    “They selected the one compound that doesn’t bio-accumulate, as opposed to testing for the toxic ingredients that have a low safety threshold and do build up in tissue. They are not looking for those.”

    Kaufman, who has been the EPA’s chief investigator on several contamination cases, including Love Canal and Times Beach, said: “They want to be able to tell the public the seafood is safe. But if you are going to test seafood to see if it’s safe or not, you want to test for the ingredients of Corexit that have a low safety threshold and do bio-accumulate in tissue.”

    “However, if you want the public to think everything is fine, then you do what they said in their press release they are doing, which is to look for an ingredient with a high safety threshold that doesn’t build up in tissue.”

    “They told you they are doing a cover up, how they are doing the cover up, and notwithstanding that, they still have some positive results for chemicals.”

  69. No OLD SALT….even though Roberts swore into office obama, he sill is unqualified according to the Constitution.. just because Roberts swore him into office doesn’t make obama legal. I do wonder though about the secret, no press swearing in later after the flub in public?

    I do think it would make a good case to IMPEACH Roberts though…don’t you agree?

  70. http://www.zerohedge.com/article/america-needs-add-232400-jobs-month-get-back-pre-depression-job-levels-end-obama-second-term

    When two months ago we looked at what the implied job creation rate must be for the US to get back to the same level of jobs as December 2007 when the original depression started (now that the recession is over) by the end of Obama’s now extremely improbable second term, we arrived at a number of 229,300 per month. Updating for the data two months later, after today’s NFP data, results in a breakeven growth rate of 232,400 per month. In other words, America now needs to create an additional 3,100 jobs per month compared to two month earlier, to merely revert to the state in employment last seen in December 2007, let alone create additional jobs. Keep in mind that unlike the economists in the government, we actually index the growth rate to adjust for the growth in the projected labor force which grows at 90,000 per month.

  74. SueK @ 2:12 pm | Nancy is so insane, serve the people, more like giving the people a life sentence to pay for her grandiose schemes. Our work far from finished means that she will have to become more devious if that is humanly possible. All of her great achievements (in her mind only) WE THE PEOPLE hate with a passion, hence the results of Nov. 2-the good news, when this group is finished the Democrat party will cease to exist-already it has become associated with being un-American, beyond corrupt and incompetent. The Democrats do not care about WE THE PEOPLE, nor our Constitutional Republic. We have to hope the Republicans learned their lessons from when they were out of power, maybe they hated it so bad that they will behave much better.
    “Our work is far from finished,” Pelosi said in a letter to colleagues. “As a result of Tuesday’s election, the role of Democrats in the 112th Congress will change, but our commitment to serving the American people will not. We have no intention of allowing our great achievements to be rolled back.”

  75. Bankroller @ 2:17 pm | MSNBC-the shocking part of the story is that MSNBC has ethical standards, somewhat like lawyers that work for Obama-no ethical standards. I have a question for all the lawyers here: if lawyers take an oath, why do some interpret that oath as a license to lie?

  76. Obama Seeks to Open New Asian Markets to U.S.
    (excerpt)
    “The primary purpose (of the India trip) is to take a bunch of US companies and open up markets so that we can sell in Asia and some of the fastest-growing markets in the world, and we can create jobs here in the United States of America,” Obama told reporters on Thursday.

    ************************************
    My thoughts:
    Normally it would be commendable to open up new markets for the U.S. but
    what O is tone deaf to is that the businesses in the U.S. cannot afford the
    cost of doing business here, because of the oppressive and uncertain tax climate, as well as uncertainty about health care and union demands.
    O just doesn’t get it – either willfully or ignorantly. The end effect is the same.

  77. There is talk of Keith Olbermann becoming the new press secretary of the

    KEITH OLBERMANN – changes to – ILK BORN METHANE
    KEITH OLBERMANN – becomes – ENEMA BROTH KILN

  78. Olbermann Gets Fired!!

    MSNBC host Keith Olbermann made campaign contributions to two Arizona members of Congress and failed Kentucky Senate candidate Jack Conway ahead of Tuesday’s election — a potential violation of NBC ethics policies.

    Olbermann, who acknowledged the contributions in a statement to POLITICO, made the maximum legal donations of $2,400 apiece to Conway and to Arizona Reps. Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords. He donated to the Arizona pair on Oct. 28 — the same day that Grijalva appeared as a guest on Olbermann’s “Countdown” show.

    Grijalva, a prominent liberal who was just declared a winner in his race Thursday night, was in a tight contest against tea-party-backed candidate Ruth McClung when he appeared on “Countdown” — one of several appearances he made on the show.

    NBC has a rule against employees contributing to political campaigns, and a wide range of news organizations prohibit political contributions — considering it a breach of journalistic independence to contribute to the candidates they cover.

  82. From: http://www.kesharogers.com/content/foreclose-obama-save-usa

    “FORECLOSE ON OBAMA TO SAVE THE U.S.A.”

    “October 25, 2010 — Obama is defending the so-called “rights” of international banks, to throw Americans out of their homes, arguing that halting foreclosures will weaken the economy. Not even Herbert Hoover had a policy of throwing people out on the street. This sort of malicious, murderous insanity, by Obama, will continue killing Americans, unless this failure of a human being is removed from office by the 25th Amendment.

    Everything Washington has done since July 2007 has been a fraud. The Homeowners and Bank Protection Act, proposed by economist Lyndon LaRouche, in July 2007, is the only real solution to the mortgage crisis, to help the millions of people being foreclosed on, while halting the phony mortgage backed securities bubble.

    The HBPA includes three provisions:
    (1) a national freeze on foreclosures;
    (2) protection of commercial banks through Glass-Steagall bankruptcy reorganization, while writing off the worthless paper associated with derivatives trading;
    (3) and the creation of a rental payment system to recapitalize commercial banks, as long as the moratorium is in place, coordinated by governors on the state level.

    This process may take several years, but it is the only way to ensure that families are kept in their homes, and safe from the invisible hand of Wall Street, which has been picking our pocket since Nixon destroyed the fixedexchange rates of Franklin Roosevelt, in 1971.

    Only a return to Glass-Steagall banking, where the commercial assets of day-to-day life are kept separate from all forms of speculation and gambling, coupled with massive investment in scientifically advanced infrastructure projects like NAWAPA and NASA, can create a long term economic recovery. This is the policy that will create enough productive work, so that people can afford to buy a home and raise a family. This won’t happen as long as Obama remains in office, so he must be foreclosed on with the 25th Amendment, now.

    Hey Kitty,

    If I’m not mistaken, she must be *elected* to the minority position (correct me if I’m wrong); it’s not a done deal. That said, she’s running at somewhere around an 8% approval rating.

    I’m thinking that the old hag would do nothing but drag the Dems further down; something they can ill afford at this point. She’s a liability and the Dems are distancing themselves from her as they are from Barky. These two are the kiss of death.

    So, who says just because she wants the position, she’s gonna get it? I’m sure there are better candidates (if that can be said about anyone in the Dem party) with more perceived credibility than the Queen of Botox.

    This should be fun to watch :).

    Jonah-that was something else. Right about us Tea Party People we will not stop until all the corruption is stopped in DC, so we can start calling it Washington, DC again-in honor of our first President.
    I liked the crack about Nancy Pelosi, only one witch allowed-O’ Donnell. I think Nancy is more insane than mean, I really do, something is wrong with that womans’ head-wealth, power-seems to have twisted her mind/personality. Nancy forgets you can’t take it with you.

    GBAmerica-is Jesse naming names ? Another thing to watch for is the sudden deaths/suicides of all the players/or anyone near to the players, I lost track of the number in Chicago and wasn’t one of the lawyers in the financial industry hit too?
    PALM BEACH, Fla. —Jeffry Picower, a philanthropist accused of profiting more than $7 billion from the investment schemes of his longtime friend Bernard Madoff, was found at the bottom of the pool at his oceanside mansion and died Sunday, police said. He was 67

  102. Michelle,
    I’m just in amazement about it all,it makes more sense now!The one gentleman on there ,can not remember his name,but he was arrested and Jesse had him on spilling everything.He kept saying that is was done on purpose.They all knew,from the banks to Washington.I’m still trying to find it on you tube ,they usually have it up 3 to 4 days prior of airing,but having a hard time trying to find it.People have to see this(Conspiracy Theory Wallstreet Nov.5,2010)Tru TV.They talk about the bonuses ,bail outs,mortgages that they knew they sold to people that could not afford it and millions of Americans losing homes on purpose.I’m still trying to pick up my mouth from the floor.The inside guy that was arrested called it dismantling on purpose.If someone finds the whole video of the show please post it.

  103. Fannie Mae asks for $2.5 billion in new US aid

    Fannie Mae reported its earnings three days after midterm elections in which criticism of the government’s financial bailouts had figured prominently in many races. Fannie and Freddie have many critics, especially among Republican lawmakers whose party gained control of the House in Tuesday’s elections.

    Over the next year, lawmakers plan to review the nation’s mortgage-lending system and consider a potential replacement for Fannie and Freddie. The financial overhaul signed by President Barack Obama in July didn’t address that issue, despite protests from Republicans that it was incomplete without such a plan.

    An analysis issued Thursday by Standard & Poor’s found the total eventual cost to taxpayers of rescuing Fannie and Freddie and funding new entities to replace them could reach $685 billion.

  104. I wonder if it’s just coincidence that Jesse Ventura’s show is airing the same day this is happening:

    A Return to Jekyll Island: The Origins, History, and Future of the Federal Reserve – November 5-6, 2010

    Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and Rutgers University
    November 5–6, 2010, Jekyll Island Club Hotel, Jekyll Island, Georgia

    This special conference marks the centenary of the 1910 Jekyll Island meeting that resulted in draft legislation for the creation of a U.S. central bank. Parts of this draft (the Aldrich plan) were incorporated into the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the drafting of the Aldrich plan, the conference will take place at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel on Jekyll Island, Georgia—the same building where the 1910 meeting occurred.

  105. JJ | November 5, 2010 at 12:27 pm | Zach Jones @ 8:27 am….
    If Cubans are automatically U.S. citizens when stepping on the soil here, not like illegals coming through the border portholes, then isn’t Rubio natural born??

    He states he hesitates campaigning on immigration issues when Cubans get away with this behavior merely ‘getting off the boat’ so to speak….this is paraphrased from an article I read.

    So, parents are citizens as he was born in Florida after they arrived?

    Corrections welcome.
    ———————————-

    JJ – I’m not aware of Sen. Rubio’s parents status. I hope they are/were naturalized citizens at the time of Rubio’s birth. If so, then I could get behind a Sen. Rubio for President or VP if or when he thinks the time is right.

    What I would love to see is Sen. Rubio and Gov. Jindal ask for sort of legal opinion from their respective Attorney General stating the parameters of who can or cannot be a Natural Born Citizen. It would be great if conflicting opinions were the result so a real discussion could happen.

    Take care, Zach
