Poor Irene can’t live up to hype!

Christie: “This Could Be a 100- Year Event.”

Al Roker: "Catastrophic for 65 million people"

"The storm cannot master its own strength."

August 26, 2011

The hype over Hurricane Irene is overblown, predicts the CEO of Advanced Forecasting Corporation.

"North of Delaware, most hurricane force winds will very likely be gusts, not sustained winds."

The demise of Irene has already begun. There is no visible eye. The storm intensity is down to 99 mph. This would be a low-end category 2 or a strong category 1 storm, while 36 hours ago some predicted a catastrophic category 4 storm. Air Force Reserve aircraft have found that Irene's eyewall has collapsed, and the central pressure has risen -- rising pressure means a weakening storm.

o The reduction in storm intensity likely confirms that this storm is not going to be as monstrous as it has been publicly forecast to be.

o Yes, it will be windy. However, north of Delaware most hurricane force winds will very likely be gusts, not sustained winds.

o At Advanced Forecasting Corporation, we are concentrating on the surging waters which typically cause over 85% of the loss of life in hurricanes. We have modeled the following predictions:

1) There will be wind damage over eastern-most North Carolina as well as some storm surge flooding up the Pamlico Sound. Some houses in the Hamptons will be flooded and destroyed. Flooding might occur in New York's Battery Park Subway station and on the FDR Drive since the city could get up to 8 inches of rain. There may be some New England neighborhoods submerged due to rivers overflowing.

2) With 90% confidence, we predict a total damage bill below $1 billion. Unless there is an unexpected secondary or tertiary event, this is not going to be a huge-loss storm.

o Our internal modeling uses genetic algorithms to emphasize the weaknesses of storms. Remember that storms are energy. Just like people, they all have their own personalities. From the get-go, Irene was not a power storm. Her goal was to become wide, not internally powerful. Personified further, the storm became too big too quickly and it cannot master its own strength.

Obama Bin lyin about Osama Bin Laden

What sealed the SEALs fate? Were they used as part of a reelection strategy? Was the Bin Laden raid a faked event? If so, how do you keep them from talking.

If it wasn’t fake, and that was really Osama, did the spiking the football by releasing the details of the SEALs lead to their deaths?

October Surprise: Bin Laden, Leaks, Seal Team Six, and 2012 - A Suspicious Timeline

Rep. King, chair of House intelligence committee, is starting to ask questions about a movie regarding the hunt for Bin Laden planned to be released in October, 2012 - just before presidential election. King started his investigation after reading a OP-Ed article in the New York Times which described that the movie producers had been given classified access to Seal Team Six. Presidential spokesman stated the investigation was without merit and the Whitehouse released no such classified information. Carney made no mention of the New York Times, "The Paper of Record", article that motivated the investigation by the Intelligence Committee, which is legally bound to oversee issues regarding national security.

Ms. Dowd, through her NYT article, may have been innocuously reporting "Inside Hollywood" gossip, but review of various statements by different players makes one wonder if someone in the Presidents campaign had been working on this film for some time:

So, with this sequence of events I am interested to understand:

  1. The movie was floundering over a story as far back as 2006, perhaps even further. The story was focused around Tora Bora. With no definitive "Hollywood Ending" what changed in Jan 2011 to motivate Megan Ellison to take the risk on investing in this film without a script
  2. Why is there references to writer Boal getting access to classified information in the January 2011Variety Article?
  3. I am not a producer/movie maker, but if there was no "ending" for the movie before OBL death on May 1, why was the team casting roles on April 29th? And why was Sony willing to commit to the movie in May 24th with no script in hand for a release in Oct 2012? I thought it normally took several years to make a movie.

Given this sequence of events, it is more than reasonable that King has asked for an investigation. There is no evidence of a explicit release of classified data, but the January 13 2011 variety article and Dowd Op-Ed pieces both make mention of classified access. And, the actions of the Hurt Locker team to solidify funding and settle on actors just before OBL was killed, after the project languished for years, is suspect.

Would it surprise anyone that an over anxious Obama election team would use knowledge of OBL's whereabouts to hint to a leading movie director of the genre that it was time to accelerate the "Kill Bin Laden" project? Perhaps with a wink and a nod that the project could get funded by a rich Obama supporter?

This thought of a conspiracy deserves an investigation to assure secrets are properly protected and that peoples good names are maintained. This would not be the first set of honest professionals unwittingly leveraged by a president to favor their re-election. Done right, this should be an interesting movie, but something does not smell right.....

House Republicans who voted to raise the debt ceiling and raise spending

If they tell you they voted to cut spending they lie. They voted to cut the rate of increase in spending over the next 10 years by a miniscule amount…the spending still goes up!

There’s no guarantee that the so-called cuts will occur anyway because one congress can’t obligate another congress on spending matters like this.

Most Americans wanted them to not raise the debt ceiling and wanted them to actually cut spending. They betrayed us on both counts.

We should not forget this the next time their name is on the ballot and the next time their hand is out for a donation!

Libyan Draft Constitution: Arabs ‘spring’ into sharia caliphate? Unintended consequences or plan all along?

Is Obama trying to improve US relations with Muslims or is he just pro Muslim? His first ‘bow’ was to the Saudi king and it was definitely a bow of subservience.

I think the bows that followed were done to make it appear that he would bow at the drop of a handkerchief so as to make the first bow not appear so blatantly submissive!

Libyan Draft Constitution: Sharia is ‘Principal Source of Legislation’

Lachlan Markay

August 22, 2011 at 1:23 pm

The dust has not yet settled over the Libyan capital of Tripoli since rebels took control over the weekend. But already, a draft constitutional charter for the transitional state has appeared online (embedded below). It is just a draft, mind you, and gauging its authenticity at this point is difficult. There is also no way to know whether this draft or something similar will emerge as the final governing document for a new Libyan regime.

As both the Morning Bell and Washington in a Flash noted today, Heritage Fellow Jim Phillips recently pointed out that Islamist forces “appear to make up a small but not insignificant part of the opposition coalition,” and must be prevented “from hijacking Libya’s future.” Parts of the draft Constitution allay those fears, while others exacerbate them.

Much of the document describes political institutions that will sound familiar to citizens of Western liberal democracies, including rule of law, freedom of speech and religious practice, and a multi-party electoral system.

But despite the Lockean tenor of much of the constitution, the inescapable clause lies right in Part 1, Article 1: “Islam is the Religion of the State, and the principal source of legislation is Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia).” Under this constitution, in other words, Islam is law. That makes other phrases such as “there shall be no crime or penalty except by virtue of the law” and “Judges shall be independent, subject to no other authority but law and conscience” a bit more ominous.

NYT: 'Green' jobs flopped

Number of Green Jobs Fails to Live Up to Promises

Rosa Ore practiced installing a solar panel at Richmond BUILD, which gives low-income residents training in green jobs.

Published: August 18, 2011

Flanked by a cadre of local political leaders, Mayor Chuck Reed of San Jose used a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a solar power company last week to talk up the promise of the green economy.

Adithya Sambamurthy/The Bay Citizen

Practice at Richmond BUILD continued at a model home.

Mr. Reed called the opening of the new headquarters of SolFocus, which produces large, free-standing solar panels, an “enormously important” development for the city’s economy.

“Clean technology is the next wave of innovation that Silicon Valley needs to capture,” the mayor said, noting that the San Jose City Council had committed to increasing the number of “green jobs” in the city to 25,000 by 2022. San Jose currently has 4,350 such jobs, according to city officials.

But SolFocus assembles its solar panels in China, and the new San Jose headquarters employs just 90 people.

Sheriff Joe rides to the rescue of Lady Liberty: Promises birth certificate investigation

Arizona sheriff promises Obama-eligibility probe

  • Lawman responds to request from local tea-party leaders

From left to right, WND's Jerome Corsi, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Surprise, Ariz., tea party leaders Julie Wise, Jim Wise and Jeff Lichter

MARICOPA COUNTY, Ariz. – At the request of tea party leaders in Arizona, famed Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has promised to investigate the validity of Barack Obama's purported long-form birth certificate in a determination of the president's eligibility for the county's 2012 election ballot.

Tea party leaders in Surprise, Ariz., met with Arpaio and WND senior reporter Jerome Corsi Thursday morning to express concern that a fake birth certificate would be used to document the president's eligibility to run in Maricopa County, where Arpaio is the chief law enforcement officer.

Arpaio's tough crackdown on illegal immigration has made him a national figure.

At a one-hour meeting in Arpaio's office, the tea party leaders presented the sheriff with a petition that was drafted after a speech by Corsi the previous night. Corsi, author of a best-selling book challenging Obama's eligibility, "Where's the Birth Certificate?", presented evidence from numerous computer-imaging specialists who believe the document presented by the White House April 27 is not authentic.

At the gathering Wednesday night of more than 325 people, sponsored by the Surprise Tea Party Patriots of Surprise, Ariz., and the Liberty Through Action organization, 242 signatures were gathered on the petition, which requested that Arpaio begin a criminal investigation.

The petition calls for the sheriff to investigate the possibility that a crime has been committed against the Arizona secretary of state, who must decide whether to put Obama's name on the ballot.

From left to right, WND's Jerome Corsi, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Surprise, Ariz., tea party leaders Brian and Denise Reilly

Arpaio told the tea party leaders the complaint is within his jurisdiction, and he will be forced to investigate. He said he expects political pressure, but he pointed out that as the chief law enforcement officer of Maricopa County, he's taken an oath to respond to citizens who approach him about enforcing the law.

Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Lt. Justin Griffin confirmed to WND that Arpaio is "waiting to receive all the documentation and all the investigative material from Dr. Jerry Corsi, and then he will look into the matter and compare it to the Arizona revised statutes."

The petition states:

We the undersigned citizens are respectfully requesting that you initiate a criminal investigation under the authority of A.R.S. 13-2407 A-C, Into the alleged Certificate of Live Birth, File Number 151 61 10641, State of Hawaii, for Barack H. Obama II. The document was released on April 27, 2011, by the White House to the press and posted on the White House website and distributed and downloaded by computer throughout the nation, including within Maricopa County. Reportedly, several experts have declared the document to be a forgery. Reportedly, the file number may be out of sequence; "THE" appears to be misspelled as "TXE" in the State Registrar's stamp; there appears to be a "smiley face" in the "A" in the Alvin T. Onaka, State Registrar stamp; reportedly the document has computer generated, multiple layers and is not a copy of a single layered document; font types appear to vary throughout the document, reportedly, not possible with a vintage 1961 mechanical typewriter. We urge you to continue to support the Rule of Law and to investigate and determine whether the alleged Certificate of Live Birth, for Barack H. Obama II, File Number 151 61 10641, is a forgery or an authentic document. A.R.S. 13-2407 A-C, declares that tampering with a public record is a class 6 felony.

"I think what we've seen is history created today," said Surprise tea party leader Brian Reilly. "This is probably the first time in this country that citizens have gone to a sheriff over a national issue."

Reilly said he's "extremely grateful" that Arpaio will look into the matter is "hopeful that this will achieve what we're expecting to achieve on this issue, which is the truth."

"We're trying to get to the truth," he emphasized.

CBSNews Covers Tracks After Pro-Obama Merchandise Store Revealed

The headline is obviously a rhetorical question. We know why; they have their heads up his…

Why is CBS News Selling Barack Obama Merchandise in its Online Store?

There‘s some curious merchandise for sale in CBS News’ online store.*

Alongside a travel mug, tote bag and T-shirt that all bear the CBS News logo, the store also includes the following:

  • “Dreams From My Father,” by Barack Obama
  • “Dreams From My Father,” by Barack Obama (hardcover)
  • “Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama‘s Plan to Renew America’s Promise”
  • “The American Journey of Barack Obama,” by Life Magazine
  • “Obama: The Historic Campaign in Photographs”
  • “The Official Inauguration Celebration DVD”

In fact, out of the 13 items for sale, seven are Obama-related, in addition to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s memoir, “True Compass.” The only CBS-related item is a DVD copy of “60 Minutes Presents — Obama: All Access – The Road to the White House.”

There is so much merchandise that a side bar on the site even has a separate “Barack Obama” tab for quick browsing:

Here’s a closer look at all of the Obama merchandise:

All of this raises a simple question: Why is CBS selling it?

A note at the bottom of the site says the merchandise has “national importance:”

CBS News t-shirts and CBS News hoodies will show you’re a true newshound. And don’t forget all the latest DVDs and books with historical significance. Choose from 60 Minutes Barack Obama DVDs, Barack Obama books and other timely tales with national importance.

Again, in addition to the five Obama books, the only other “timely tale” is Kennedy’s memoir.

When The Blaze reached out to CBS for comment, no one initially knew who was in charge of the store, or indeed, that one existed. One woman even asked, “There’s a CBS News online store?”

After several hours being bounced around through various departments, CBS directed The Blaze to a spokesman for CBS Interactive, the arm that manages the network’s online content.

So what’s the reason for the items?

In a statement, the spokesman said the merchandise posted for sale was a mistake by the store’s third-party provider and would be taken down:

“It has come to our attention that merchandise unrelated to CBS News was inadvertently made available by our third-party provider on the webpage that is located in the CBS Interactive online store. The items will be removed. We’d like to thank The Blaze for their vigilance in this important matter.”

Important, indeed.

*UPDATE: Minutes after publication, CBS removed the items from the website. Note that “Change We Can Believe In” is still visible in the lower-left corner under “recently viewed.”

UPDATE II: The merchandise is still visible if you type “obama” into the search bar. (h/t Blaze reader Aaron)

ROFLMAO: Earth’s global warming may cause aliens to destroy us

NASA idiots don’t even know it’s a fraud and now they warn that aliens may destroy us due to it!

Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations, say scientists

Rising greenhouse emissions may tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report for Nasa

A scene from Mars Attacks!

When they see what a mess we've made of our planet, aliens may be forced to take drastic action. Photograph: PR

It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.

Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth's atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.

This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by scientists at Nasa and Pennsylvania State University that, while considered unlikely, they say could play out were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future.

Herman Cain: Impeaching Obama would be 'a great thing'

CAIN: Impeachment 'a great thing to do'...

By ALEXANDER BURNS | 8/16/11 8:08 PM EDT Updated: 8/17/11 1:20 PM EDT

Asked on a conference call with bloggers this evening why Republicans can't just impeach Barack Obama, Herman Cain answers that it's mostly a matter of legislative politics, POLITICO's Elizabeth Titus reports:

"That’s a great question and it is a great — it would be a great thing to do but because the Senate is controlled by Democrats we would never be able to get the Senate first to take up that action, because they simply don’t care what the American public thinks. They would protect him and they wouldn’t even bring it up," Cain said, citing the administration's position on the Defense of Marriage Act as an impeachable offense.

More from his answer: "So the main stumbling block in terms of getting him impeached on a whole list of things such as trying to pass a health care mandate which is unconstitutional, ordering the Department of Justice to not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act — that’s an impeachable offense right there. The president is supposed to uphold the laws of this nation … and to tell the Department of Justice not to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act is a breach of his oath. … There are a number of things where a case could be made in order to impeach him, but because Republicans do not control the United States Senate, they would never allow it to get off the ground."

Even among the most conservative, anti-Obama members of Congress, supporting impeachment is a fringe position. But then, Cain isn't really competing for the median voter at this point anyway.

No such thing as as 'African-American' in 1961 yet Barak Hussein Obama’s birth certificate states he is one…

Obama whipped out the birth certificate, that had been cooked up over the previous 3 years, on the same week end as the supposed killing of Osama and the royal wedding.

Talk about a document dump; there was virtually no attention given to the birth certificate story as the other two blockbuster stories sucked up all the coverage

I received the following via email:

It was brought to light that   back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes.' So how can this 'birth   certificate' state he is 'African-American' when the term wasn't even used   back then?? This isn't over!

This is interesting!

Here is a  comment from a reader to George Ure at UrbanSurvival.com:

"As you all   know, Donald Trump made a big deal about Obama's birth certificate. As of   yesterday, the White House released the birth certificate.

I will tell   you right now that I had never given this "birther" issue any credit. I   watched the hype and the crazies come out. I completely dismissed the entire   ordeal altogether. In fact, it was not until the White House released the   birth certificate that it had gained my attention.

I am the studious   sort of guy, and I have plenty of time on my hands. So, I took a close look at   this document. While I would have thought that this issue would have been   closed for good (and, got the crazies to crawl back into their holes), I found   two extremely strange inconsistencies that merit some attention.

  1. First   of all, the birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's   birth as August 4, 1961. It also lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No   big deal, right? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father   is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in " Kenya , East   Africa ".

    This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact that   Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama's birth, and   27 years after his father's birth. How could Obama's father have been born in   a country that did not yet exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it   was known as the "British East Africa Protectorate". But, this is not the only   thing that I found that just does not jive.
  2. The other item that I   looked into was the hospital that Obama was born in. On the birth certificate   released by the White House, the listed place of birth is "Kapi'olani   Maternity & Gynecological Hospital". This cannot be, because the   hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital"   and "Kapi'olani Maternity Home", respectively.

    The name did not change to   Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two   hospitals merged. How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth   certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?  

Go ahead, look it up. I am not talking crazy talk, these are the   facts. Like I said, I thought that this was a non-issue until the actual   certificate was released. Now that it has been released, of course I had to   look into it. I have found these issues, now I know that something is up. If   you doubt me, just look at the following resources:

Sure as hell, the   hospital part is true, as you can read about the 1978 merger   here.

http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx

Post-colonial   history (from   Wikipedia)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Kenya

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya

The   first direct elections for Africans to the Legislative Council took place in   1957. Despite British hopes of handing power to "moderate" African rivals, it   was the Kenya African National Union (KANU) of Jomo Kenyatta that formed a   government shortly before Kenya became independent on 12 December 1963, on the   same day forming the first Constitution of Kenya.

Obama takes the bus…the million dollar plus bus…on our dime!

Obama believes this will show him getting back with the people; riding a bus like common folk. But he’s not campaigning…

Well, not exactly. Who else in this or any other country has ever ridden in a bus which cost more than a million dollars? Many corporate jets cost less!!!

Obama Ag Secretary: Food Stamps Are A "Stimulus". Are Americans this stupid? Dems must believe so!

Democrat leaders can’t believe what they say; unemployment benefits are a stimulus; food stamps are a stimulus, the way to get out of debt is to spend more money, we’ve got to pass Obamacare to find out all the good things in it…

Administration: Food stamps 'stimulus'...

Obama AG Secretary Vilsack

Obama's Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack: "Well, obviously, it's putting people to work. Which is why we're going to have some interesting things in the course of the forum this morning. Later this morning, we're going have a press conference with Secretary Mavis and Secretary Chu to announce something that's never happened in this country -- something that we think is exciting in terms of job growth. I should point out, when you talk about the SNAP program or the foot stamp program, you have to recognize that it's also an economic stimulus. Every dollar of SNAP benefits generates $1.84 in the economy in terms of economic activity. If people are able to buy a little more in the grocery store, someone has to stock it, package it, shelve it, process it, ship it. All of those are jobs. It's the most direct stimulus you can get in the economy during these tough times."

The jobs are always ‘greener’ on the other side!

Another stupid ‘green’ boondoggle. $20 million federal grant for weatherization…wasn’t shovel ready?

Seattle's 'green jobs' program a bust

By Vanessa Ho, Seattlepi.comPublished: Aug 16, 2011 at 8:27 AM PDT

Last year, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn announced the city had won a coveted $20 million federal grant to invest in weatherization. The unglamorous work of insulating crawl spaces and attics had emerged as a silver bullet in a bleak economy – able to create jobs and shrink carbon footprint – and the announcement came with great fanfare.
McGinn had joined Vice President Joe Biden in the White House to make it. It came on the eve of Earth Day. It had heady goals: creating 2,000 living-wage jobs in Seattle and retrofitting 2,000 homes in poorer neighborhoods.

But more than a year later, Seattle's numbers are lackluster. As of last week, only three homes had been retrofitted and just 14 new jobs have emerged from the program. Many of the jobs are administrative, and not the entry-level pathways once dreamed of for low-income workers. Some people wonder if the original goals are now achievable.
"The jobs haven't surfaced yet," said Michael Woo, director of Got Green, a Seattle community organizing group focused on the environment and social justice.

"It's been a very slow and tedious process. It's almost painful, the number of meetings people have gone to. Those are the people who got jobs. There's been no real investment for the broader public."

Who's got the money'
The buildings that have gotten financing so far include the Washington Athletic Club and a handful of hospitals, a trend that concerns community advocates who worry the program isn't helping lower-income homeowners.

"Who's benefitting from this program right now – it doesn't square with what the aspiration was," said Howard Greenwich, the policy director of Puget Sound Sage, an economic-justice group. He urged the city to revisit its social-equity goals.

"I think what it boils down to is who's got the money."
Organizers and policy experts blame the economy, bureaucracy and bad timing for the program's mediocre results. Called Community Power Works, the program funds low-interest loans and incentives for buildings to do energy-efficient upgrades. They include hospitals, municipal buildings, big commercial structures and homes.

Half the funds are reserved for financing and engaging homeowners in Central and Southeast Seattle, a historically underserved area. Most of the jobs are expected to come from this sector.

But the timing of the award has led to hurdles in enticing homeowners to bite on retrofits. The city had applied for the grant at a time of eco-giddiness, when former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels was out-greening all other politicians except for Al Gore. Retrofits glowed with promise to boost the economy, reduce consumer bills and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

"A triple win," is how Biden characterized it.
By the time Seattle won the award, homeowners were battered by unemployment and foreclosures. The long-term benefits of energy upgrades lacked the tangible punch of a new countertop. And the high number of unemployed construction workers edged out new weatherization installers for the paltry number of jobs.

"Really, we couldn't have rolled out this program at a worse time," said Greenwich, who had helped write the city's grant proposal.
"The outcomes are very disappointing. I think the city has worked really hard, but no one anticipated just how bad this recession was going to be, and the effect it was going to have on this program."

City feels 'cautiously optimistic'
As of last week, 337 homeowners had applied for the program. Fourteen had gotten a loan, or were in the process of getting one.
"Yes, we're not seeing as many completed retrofits as we wanted to," said Joshua Curtis, the city's manager for Community Power Works. "While everyone would like to see more upgrades, I think we're feeling cautiously optimistic."

He said the residential portion of program didn't launch until April. He said there was a normal summertime lull in work and that he expected things to pick up in the fall. He was confident that the city's marketing campaign and loan partner held promise.

Curtis said there were factors outside the city's control, such as the economy. And he attributed frustration among job-seekers to a "mismatch" in the timing of two federal grants.

Before the city got the $20 million, some local agencies, including Got Green, had received funds in a government push to train workers in weatherization. But the anticipation of landing career-path jobs evaporated as months went by with no work.

"People are frustrated and rightly so," Curtis said. "There's been sort of a lag time when people graduated from those programs."

They include Long Duong, 32, who got a certificate in sealing air leaks and insulating walls after he was laid off from a job handling bags at the airport. But he soon found that other men had more qualifications than him, and he took part-time gigs - installing light bulbs and canvassing doors – while waiting for work.

A year later, he's still looking.
"I haven't given up yet," said Duong, of South Seattle. "Weatherization is another opportunity for me."

Curtis said the money that financed the Washington Athletic Club and hospitals doesn't draw from funds reserved for single-family homeowners. He said the program's standards will ensure that people targeted by the program – low-income workers – will get good jobs. And he said the WAC project will create some new work in September.
"We're not where we want to be, but we have a path forward," he said.

City needs to 'step up its game'
But will the city hit its goals? Curtis was hopeful Seattle would make it by 2013, when the funding ends. Greenwich, of Puget Sound Sage, said the city needs to retrofit 100 to 200 homes a month to create 2,000 jobs. Woo, of Got Green, thinks the city needs to throw more money on incentives.

Greenwich said the energy retrofit market has turned out to be extremely complicated, with required hammering out of job standards, hiring practices, wages and how best to measure energy benefits.
"The city is really going to have to step up its game to get the 2,000 retrofits," Greenwich said.

"But if this would have been easy, it would have been done already."

Obama: I reversed recession until 'bad luck' hit

by Byron York

At a town hall meeting on his campaign-style tour of the Midwest, President Obama claimed that his economic program "reversed the recession" until recovery was frustrated by events overseas. And then, Obama said, with the economy in an increasingly precarious position, the recovery suffered another blow when Republicans pressed the White House for federal spending cuts in exchange for an increase in the national debt limit, resulting in a deal Obama called a "debacle."

"We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. "But over the last six months we've had a run of bad luck." Obama listed three events overseas -- the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises -- which set the economy back.

"All those things have been headwinds for our economy," Obama said. "Now, those are things that we can't completely control. The question is, how do we manage these challenging times and do the right things when it comes to those things that we can control?"

"The problem," Obama continued, "is that we've got the kind of partisan brinksmanship that is willing to put party ahead of country, that is more interested in seeing their political opponents lose than seeing the country win. Nowhere was that more evident than in this recent debt ceiling debacle."

Except for its updated details, much of the president's speech resembled the stump speeches he gave when campaigning for Democrats before the 2010 midterm elections. But the White House claims this trip is non-political, part of the president's officials duties to discuss economic issues with the public.

For the three-day tour through Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri, the Secret Service has rolled out two new buses, costing more than $1 million apiece, to take the president and his aides around the countryside.

Ron Paul, the invisible man. Why does the media ignore him…that should make you think!

What if your view of Ron Paul has been shaped by the media. The media are owned by the ruling class. So, your view of Ron Paul has been shaped by the ruling class.

That should be an indication to you that Ron Paul is the ‘real’ deal, a man of principles of liberty and freedom…of limited government!

A man the ruling class can’t abide!!!

Reporting from Washington—

The ATF has promoted three key supervisors of a controversial sting operation that allowed firearms to be illegally trafficked across the U.S. border into Mexico.
All three have been heavily criticized for pushing the program forward even as it became apparent that it was out of control. At least 2,000 guns were lost and many turned up at crime scenes in Mexico and two at the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.
The three supervisors have been given new management positions at the agency's headquarters in Washington. They are William G. McMahon, who was the ATF's deputy director of operations in the West, where the illegal trafficking program was focused, and William D. Newell and David Voth, both field supervisors who oversaw the program out of the agency's Phoenix office.
McMahon and Newell have acknowledged making serious mistakes in the program, which was dubbed Operation Fast and Furious.
"I share responsibility for mistakes that were made," McMahon testified to a House committee three weeks ago. "The advantage of hindsight, the benefit of a thorough review of the case, clearly points me to things that I would have done differently."
Three Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spokesmen did not return phone calls Monday asking about the promotions. But several agents said they found the timing of the promotions surprising, given the turmoil at the agency over the failed program.

SF cuts off cellphone service for Rapid Transit commuters Thursday

SF cell shutdown: Safety issue, or hint of Orwell?

Aug 13 06:19 PM US/Eastern
By TERRY COLLINS
Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - An illegal, Orwellian violation of free-speech rights? Or just a smart tactic to protect train passengers from rowdy would-be demonstrators during a busy evening commute?

The question resonated Saturday in San Francisco and beyond as details emerged of Bay Area Rapid Transit officials' decision to cut off underground cellphone service for a few hours at several stations Thursday. Commuters at stations from downtown to near the city's main airport were affected as BART officials sought to tactically thwart a planned protest over the recent fatal shooting of a 45-year-old man by transit police.

Two days later, the move had civil rights and legal experts questioning the agency's move, and drew backlash from one transit board member who was taken aback by the decision.

"I'm just shocked that they didn't think about the implications of this. We really don't have the right to be this type of censor," said Lynette Sweet, who serves on BART's board of directors. "In my opinion, we've let the actions of a few people affect everybody. And that's not fair."

MEDIA TURNS ON REPORTER FOR QUESTIONING SOCIALIST DICK DURBIN

 


Did media cover up Sen. Durbin's confrontation with reporter? (VIDEO)

Thursday, August 11, 2011 - Bill Kelly's Truth Squad by William Kelly

Chicago, August 11, 2011 – This week U.S. Senator Dick Durbin held a press conference with members of the mainstream media to talk about the downgrade crisis. But the Senator’s scripted storyline veered off-course when a conservative reporter – me – showed up to ask an embarrassing question. Namely, “Senator, you’ve blamed the tea party…but do you bear any responsibility for this downgrade crisis?”

What, you didn’t hear about this incident in the media? For those of you that need more proof that journalism is dead, read on.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL)

Monday was another beautiful day for a mainstream media cover-up in Chicago. But it would not have been complete without a picnic-basket full of hypocrisy from our very own U.S. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois.

You may remember Dick.

He’s the Senator that hysterically compared the treatment of the Gitmo detainees to Nazis, Soviet gulags, and Pol Pot. While calling for an end to “hateful” rhetoric, he’s the one who wrongfully pointed his crooked finger at the Tea Party Movement and Gov. Sarah Palin, blaming them for the Tucson massacre and the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Recently, he’s the one that, hypocritically, accused the Tea Party Republicans of “political extortion” in the debt ceiling debate.

While the markets were tanking – Durbin took some time out to have a press conference and dish to his friends in the Chicago media about the S&P downgrade of our nation’s sterling credit rating.

Given his history, I expected more of the same accusatory rhetoric about the tea party from Durbin. Since the report of the downgrade hit the newswires last Friday, members of Durbin’s party have been in full anti-tea party spin control.

“The fact of the matter is that this is essentially a tea party downgrade,” said former White House advisor David Axelrod on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Sen. John Kerry must have received the same memo. “This is the tea party downgrade,” said Kerry on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

I went to Durbin’s press conference to set the record straight. My objective: some journalistic balance. Not only did Durbin refuse to answer the question but his cronies in the Chicago media went on the attack.

One of those crony journalists was Jim Anderson, news director for the Illinois Radio Network. You can hear him in the background telling Durbin, “He organizes tea party rallies." In media terms, that’s called being fair and impartial. That’s what a real journalist does.

I stood my ground and asked the question a number of times. “You’re not allowed to ask questions during a press conference,” bleated Anderson. “We are going to have you thrown out by the cops,” he said, running interference for Durbin. In addition to doing news for the Illinois Radio Network, Anderson apparently moonlights as an unpaid member of Dick Durbin’s staff.

A special agent was soon dispatched to have me escorted out of the room, where I, as press, had a right to be. At least, that’s what I read, once upon a time, in the U.S. Constitution.

I am an independent social journalist for the Washington Times Communities and contribute to the American Spectator, and Breitbart.com among others. No other blogger, freelance journalist, or other member of the media was asked to show their credentials at this event. In fact, the event was sponsored by City Club of Chicago and was open to media and the public.

This brings us to the eternal question: Who is media and who is not? Who gets to decide? Sen. Dick Durbin? His friends in the Chicago media? Are public officials accountable to the public? Do we have the right to question authority? Or must we just accept what they bestow upon us? Do we have the right to question the media? Or do we have to let the so-called “real” journalists impose their own idea of news? Of truth?

During my exchange with him, Sen. Durbin told (instructed) the media, “You guys aren’t going to cover this are you?” And the media…didn’t.

Is this collusion between a high-ranking member of the Democrat party and the supposedly unbiased mainstream media? Do I sympathize with the gripes of the Tea Party? Yes and yes.

The media and the Democrats accuse the tea party, conservatives, and Republicans in general of being “uncivil.” They compare us to terrorists “strapped with explosives” because we are trying to change Washington; because we want fairness in the media; because we are trying to put an end to corruption, fraud, and the redistribution of wealth that is considered “routine.” To an inside-the-beltway hack, to oppose the status quo - that must truly be “terrifying.”

Of course, I’ve been accused of being uncivil before. I’ve also been threatened by other journalists before. But this isn’t about civility; it’s about control.

The Democrats and their media cronies want to control the news and information. They want to control the political system and its system of punishments and rewards. This system is fundamentally anti-freedom and they – the powers that be - are “OK” with that.

I was held to a different standard because I write for conservative news outlets and Sen. Durbin didn’t like my question. The mainstream media are merely an adjunct to the Obama campaign and the Democrat National Committee. Not one of them reported this incident.

The economic crisis is not helped by a compliant, subservient media that tampers with news to help their candidates and causes. In the abscessed cavity of newsrooms around Chicago, this exchange and the remarks Sen. Durbin made to the media’s microphones exists. In Chicago, NBC, CBS, ABC, the Chicago Sun-Times, and every other news outlet, have shown their true colors. They weren’t red, white, and blue.

And neither are Durbin’s.

Conservative satirist and commentator William J. Kelly is also a contributor to Breitbart.com and edits the Tea Party Reports for the Washington Times Communities. He is a native from Chicago's Southside.

Obama’s loose lips sinks SEALs contends Geller

Or were they killed to ensure they never revealed what really happened on that raid?

Afghan Helicopter Attack is Obama's Fault

By Pamela Geller

It came to light Monday that the thirty elite American troops who were killed when their helicopter was attacked in Afghanistan were lured into a trap by the Taliban.

An Afghan official said, "Now it's confirmed that the helicopter was shot down and it was a trap that was set by a Taliban commander. The Taliban knew which route the helicopter would take."

How did the Taliban know? Who tipped off the Taliban? And who supplied the Taliban with the surface-to-air armaments?

I blame the president.

I believe the loose lips of this reckless, incompetent fraud cost this group of elite Navy SEALs their lives. So obsessed was this poseur with taking credit for something that he didn't have the stomach for (and didn't want) that he ensured a U.S. sacrifice of incalculable proportions.

There were Navy SEALs from SEAL Team Six, the same unit that killed Osama bin Laden, among those who were lost in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Back in May, Defense Secretary Gates said that releasing information about the raid in which Osama bin Laden was killed would threaten the safety of the Navy SEALs who were involved in that operation and their families. They would become targets for jihad terrorists.

So why was this information released? Why did the Obama administration leak and name this SEAL team?

We should not have been told. Obama should have released the pictures of that jihadist monster and moved on. Instead, he gave him a proper Islamic burial and held back on proof for fear on insulting Islam.

Was this payback for Leon Panetta's revelation that the Navy SEALs, not the president, made the decision to kill Osama bin Laden? Who is taking revenge? The ISI?

These are the questions that must be asked and answered by the Obama administration. But do not expect him to do it. I revealed the truth about this socialist internationalist in my book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America. Everything he has done since he has become President has confirmed how right I was about him.

In a characteristic move, Obama has banned the media from the return of the remains of these Navy SEALs to the U.S. Clearly, the visual of a parade of coffins, the images of the worst day in recent U.S. history, would not be an opportune Obama photo-op. Cold-blooded calculation.

And do not expect the press, whose job it is, to get to the truth of this matter. The mainstream media is nothing more than an activist propaganda machine that is actively working against the American people. It is the enemy's number-one arsenal in its war on America.

It is all but surrender, my friends, all but surrender.

The loss of these extraordinary warriors cannot be described. The pain and suffering are beyond mere words. Weep for the loss for the families and for our great and noble country.

This is one of those moments that tears at your heart. Matt Lauer interviewed the extraordinary family of Aaron Vaughn, a Navy SEAL Team Six member. Vaughn was one of the SEALs who was killed by jihadists in the largest single loss of life ever for SEAL Team Six, and the largest loss of life for American forces in a single event since the defensive action began after Islam's declaration of war on the America on September 11, 2001.

It was an incredible interview. What patriots, what strength -- good, fine, and decent people, and to hear them speak of this huge loss was wrenching. Lauer is incapable of conducting an interview where he has no control of the script, but the family didn't hold back in describing how much their son loved G-d, loved our country, and believed that Islamic fundamentalism threatened the survival of our nation and civilization. Vaughn's father spoke of Islamic history and the threat that people remain painfully unaware of. It is rare that the truth breaks through the iron curtain of the media -- and look what it took in this case.

There should be a national day of mourning declared in the honor of these Navy SEALs, to remind all Americans of the devastating toll taken by the war declared on the West by Islamic jihad.

Pray for their families. They gave all.
