NEWT GINGRICH CREATES A NEW CONTRACT WITH AMERICA

Alan note: If we could merge Sarah Palin with Newt Gingrich we would have a perfect person to restore America into a viable country again.





Sarah Palin has the name recognition, common sense and enough experience in running a State as governor and courage needed to bring this ship of State around into he right direction.





Newt has the kind of experience dealing with D.C., Senate and Congress she will accumulate but he can provide a BRAINY shortcut.





The snag is he too intellectual to play second fiddle to anyone (no reflection on Sarah's abilities) and she may not want to lose the opportunity to swamp Obama, using her own advantages, if she has to carry and compensate for his negatives - added to what she is facing already from a hostile press.





If they could work it out they would have the most effective team ever to lead our country and restore our prosperity and national security.



Given an "either or" I would go with Sarah Palin - she has enough of what Newt brings to the table but he does not have enough to beat Obama's Chicago machine and negative press attacks.

SOME HIGHLIGHTS



21st CENTURY CONTRACT WITH AMERICA

PART 1: LEGISLATIVE PROPOSALS



1. Repeal Obamacare and pass a replacement that saves lives and money by empowering patients and doctors, not bureaucrats and politicians.



2. Return to robust job creation with a bold set of tax cuts and regulatory reforms that will free American entrepreneurs to invest and hire, as well as by reforming the Federal Reserve and creating a training requirement for extended federal unemployment benefits to encourage work and improve the quality of our workforce.



Alan note: the Federal reserve appears to have mishandled TRILLIONS  of Dollars posssibly to a criminal level of abuse and beyond the scope of their authority!



3. Unleash America’s full energy production potential in oil, natural gas, coal, biofuels, wind, nuclear oil shale and more, creating jobs, stimulating a sustainable manufacturing boom, lowering gasoline and other energy prices, increasing government revenues, and bolstering national security.



4. Save Medicare and Social Security by giving Americans more choices and tools to live longer, healthier lives with greater financial independence.



5. Balance the federal budget by freeing job-creators to grow the economy, reforming entitlements, and implementing productivity improvement systems such as Lean Six Sigma to eliminate waste and fraud. Pass a balanced budget amendment to keep it balanced.



6. Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.



7. Revitalize our national security system to meet 21st century threats by restructuring and adequately funding our security agencies to function within a grand strategy for victory over those who seek to kill us or limit American power.



8. Maximize the speed and impact of medical breakthroughs by removing unnecessaryobstacles that block new treatments from reaching patients and emphasizing research spending towards urgent national priorities, like brain science with its impact on  Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, mental health and other conditions knowledge of the brain will help solve.



9. Restore the proper role of the judicial branch by using the clearly delineated powers available to the president and Congress to correct, limit, or replace judges who violate the Constitution.



10. Enforce the Tenth Amendment by starting an orderly transfer of power and responsibility from the federal government back “to the states, respectively, or to the people,” as the Constitution requires. Over the next year, state and local officials and citizens will be asked to identify the areas which can be transferred back home.



21st Century Contract with America will be much larger than the original, and will consist of four parts.



1. A set of legislative proposals to shift America back to job creation, prosperity, freedom, and safety.



2. A “First Day” project of Executive Orders to be signed on inauguration day to

immediately transform the way the executive branch works.



3. A training program for the transition teams and the appointees who will lead the shift back to Constitutional, limited government.



4. A system of citizen involvement to help us sustain grassroots support for change and help implement the change through 2021.





SALIENT COMMENT 1 (hat tip "caww" Freerepublic.com)



Well now...I could vote for this...in a heartbeat! I'm ready to forgive Newts' past and his private life...I think he above the rest understands the seriousness of the tipping point this nations is at. He's constantly making reference that this election is not to be fun and games and he will not play it as that.

Seems to me time to get adults back in the Whitehouse and one who loves his country. Perry will sell us to the highest bidder globally, he's in it for Texas deals he couldn't get otherwise.....Romney will be his usual traitor self....Cain's got to be involved in Washington now but not ready to actually lead....Bachmans lost her momentum entirely and PAlins still on the fence.



I'd vote Newt....and pray hard he'll set the course for our nations recovery fast and hard...and he could do that as no other....there is no learning curve in this next Presidency...no time for it, it has to be action when the boots hit the ground and running!



SALIENT COMMENT 2 (hat tip - cizinec - FreeRepublic.com)



I agree with the conventional wisdom that Marco Rubio is far and away the ideal choice for vice president. He brings the Hispanic vote (even though he is Cuban and not Mexican) and he delivers Florida.

The Republican cannot win without Florida just as Obama cannot win without Pennsylvania.



Rubio would be able to hold up very well in the vice presidential debates probably on a level with Gingrich and in any event the vice presidential debates are mainly held to see if one or the other makes a major gaffe which will hurt the ticket but they do very little to help the ticket.



The problem with Gingrich in a secondary role in the administration is much the same as having Churchill in a subordinate role in the British Cabinet, he might be uncontainable. Although he tended to mind his manners when he was subordinate to Bob Michael in the house, it is not clear to me that Gingrich at this stage in his life would be willing to subordinate his ego to another man's conceptions of policy. (Please pardon the participle disagreement)



For some time I shared your opinion that Gingrich knew he could not win the nomination but this race for the nomination has turned into such a scramble that I actually believe Gingrich is becoming more and more the rational alternative. Much depends on whether the party sees that the Republic is really and truly in desperate trouble as I believe it is. Keep your eye on China, that is the 3rd leg of the world's 3 legged economic stool and it looks like it might just be falling away. If it does, things will get very grim indeed and the party just might turn to Newt.

Rosh Hashanah GIFT FROM HILLARY CLINTON AND OBAMA

When will American Jews WAKE UP and stop supporting the Obama regime as it continues to bash Israel, Jews and every day Americans in general , based on purely Palestinian/Arab urgings supported by clearly Moslem-programmed Obama.



(Did you ever wonder what that skull scar he has really is?  Smile)






Secretary of State Clinton, in a sharp departure from her stance when she was a senator, is warning that any American action, even symbolically, toward recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel must be avoided for the reason that it would jeopardize the peace process.



Her warnings were issued in a brief she has just filed with the Supreme Court — in which she is arguing that a law she voted for when she was Senator is unconstitutional because it could require the U.S. government to give to an American citizen born at Jerusalem papers showing the birthplace as Israel.



The law requiring the government to issue such documents on request passed the Senate unanimously at a time when Mrs. Clinton was a member. But Presidents Bush and Obama have taken the position that the law infringes on the president’s prerogatives in respect of foreign policy.



(Obama now siding with Arab Jihadists, using the State Department to implement his bias).



Mrs. Clinton is being sued by an American youngster, Menachem Zivotofsky, who was born at Jerusalem in 2002 to American parents who want his birthplace to be listed on his passport as Israel.



In addition to citing the peace process as the excuse for not issuing the birth document the Congress wants issued, Mrs. Clinton’s brief adds a new twist to the story of the White House photos first disclosed last month by the New York Sun. The story involved the discovery that even while the White House was fretting over the requirement to list Jerusalem, Israel, as Master Zivotofsky’s birthplace, the White House’s own website was featuring a series of pictures from Vice President Biden’s 2010 trip to the Jewish state and identifying the pictures as showing him at “Jerusalem, Israel.” The Sun queried whether the Zivotofsky case really rose to constitutional proportions, since the White House on its own website treated Jerusalem as being in Israel.



Five days later, the White House removed “Israel” from each of the Biden pictures, without announcing the deletion. The State Department also quietly deleted “Israel” from references to “Jerusalem, Israel” on numerous official documents on its own website, dating from the Bush administration.



Mrs. Clinton’s brief alleges that any American action that “symbolically or concretely” signals it recognizes Jerusalem being in Israel would “critically compromise the ability of the United States to work with Israelis, Palestinians and others in the region to further the peace process.” The brief contends that American policy is to remain neutral over all sovereignty issues, leaving them to negotiations, and that the U.S. thus “does not recognize Palestinian claims to current sovereignty” in the West Bank or Gaza either.



It is that latter statement that requires further revision to the Biden photos on the White House website. Two of the photos from Biden’s trip show him meeting with Palestinian officials in the “Palestinian Territories.”



The proper reference is to “territories” – the word used in U.N. Resolution 242, the foundational document of the “peace process,” which did not affix the adjective “Jordanian” or “Arab” or “Palestinian” to the territories, nor require that “all of the” territories be relinquished by Israel, but rather left an unspecified portion to be traded for a defensible peace. America has never assigned that land to the “Palestinians” and maintains that only negotiations can create Palestinian sovereignty there.



So far, Israel has made three offers of a Palestinian state, and the Palestinians rejected all three. They currently refuse to negotiate a fourth, unless Israel concedes the 1949 armistice lines as the basis of a Palestinian state before negotiations begin — while rejecting on their own part any recognition of a Jewish state, defensible borders, or an “end of claims” agreement.



If an adjective is necessary, the term Israel uses is “disputed territories.” Palestine was designated by the League of Nations in 1922 as the national home of the Jewish people. In response to Arab opposition, Britain’s Peel Commission in 1937 proposed two states, which the Jews accepted and the Arabs rejected. In 1947, the Arabs rejected the UN two-state proposal, and Jordan illegally occupied a portion of Palestine in the ensuing war that the Arabs commenced.



That occupation ended in 1967, when Jordan joined a new war against Israel and lost the land it unlawfully held. The UN thereafter adopted Resolution 242 as the basis for peace, under which any Israeli withdrawal, and the extent thereof, is subject to the establishment of “secure and recognized boundaries.” Hence it is a contradiction of the neutrality principle asserted in the Clinton brief for the adjective “Palestinian” to be affixed to the territories prior to a negotiated agreement.



If the Obama administration believes in the neutrality principle it is asserting in the Supreme Court — and that the mere mention of “Jerusalem, Israel” on its website, or putting “Israel” on an individual’s passport, would violate that principle – the question will arise as to whether it will also scrub also the references to the “Palestinian” territories.



If it does not treat both situations the same, the Supreme Court may legitimately question whether the Clinton brief is asserting the true reason for the administration’s adamant opposition to the designation of “Israel” in the passport of Master Zivotofsky.

WAS THE BIBLE THUMPING ANTI-CHRISTER HECKLER AN OBAMA PLANNED SHOW?

A bizarre Bible-thumping heckler called President Obama "the Antichrist" as the Secret Service dragged him out of a presidential fund-raiser Monday.



The bearded young man, identified by the Secret Service as David Serrano, was standing in the front row closest to the stage at the House of Blues in Los Angeles when he began shouting, "Christian God is the one and only true living God, the Creator of heaven and the universe!"



Alan note: how does a scruffy, out of place looking David Serrano not only get into an event that requires an $18,000 PER PERSON entry fee but is allowed - contrary to ANY security logic - to be center stage and front row - where Obama will be - and within physical striking distance -  WITHOUT BEING CHECKED OUT by the Secret Service!!!!  Or someone at a high Oval Office level "clearing" him to be there.



The verbal attack by Serrano could just as easily have been or become a physical attack and I have far too much respect for the Secret Service (and had enough experience myself with protection  details charged with guarding a  Head of State) to label Secret Service agents and their supervisors, as this incompetent!



Also with such close proximity to Obama of a potentially violent attacker, their reactions were far too relaxed/casual - as if they already knew Obama was in no real danger from this apparently "raving lunatic"! He was removed, having played his part,  almost as a show for public consumption.



I do not think the Secret Service were fully aware of the pre-planned staged activity but MUST HAVE KNOWN Serrano had been "given an OK" by a senior operative of the White House or in their own organization. Perhaps the Se cret Service being told Obama was setting up a joke for the $36,000 a couple donors attending his campaign.



If NOT, then their lax security  measures would certainly be a stain on their image of being terrific in their jobs.



Even Obama, knowing he was in no danger from this staged attacker, could not conceal being amused - almost spoiling the illusion created to make Christians into home grown terrorists for campaign purposes.



Obama smiled uncomfortably as the crowd drowned the heckler out with chants of "Four more years!"



The Secret Service marched the heckler to the exit, but not before he yelled out, "Jesus Christ is God! Barack Obama is the Antichrist!"



Facing a mostly friendly crowd, the "self-possessed" President coolly continued with his speech, saying, "All right, where was I? It is good to be back in L.A."



Serrano was questioned and released without charges, the Secret Service said.



Tony Bell, spokesman for Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, says Serrano has been a fixture at county meetings for a couple years, giving long, rambling religious statements predicting earthquakes and the apocalypse.



"He yells out his statements, which are very mistaken, odd interpretations of scriptures," Bell said. "He's been pretty close to being thrown out of our meetings.



(And the Secret Service did not know any of this? Enough to worry if Serrano had been for real?)



When he calls Supervisor Antonovich 'Mikey,' it's very vitriolic. He's not a pleasant guy. He talks about Jews in his diatribes and seems very anti-Semitic. I don't have the impression he's dangerous, but he has issues that could use some help.



Tony Bell:"He must have used some real initiative to get into that event".



(Like what? Buying an $18,000 ticket? While you may  not want to profile , when Head of State security considerations enter the picture you DO NOT IGNORE  nor minimize  indicators of potential danger!



As food for thought, perhaps not in play here, a skilled martial artist can strike a lethal blow as fast as in ONE SIXTEENTH of a second and cover a distance of over 20 feet in the blink of an eye.



All this, while speculative, points to the event having been staged by Obama for political gain.

REPEAT REMINDER

INTERESTING HOW THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BEEN LISTED AS A



CREDITOR IN BANKRUPTCY DOCUMENTS OF THE SOLAR PANEL



COMPANY SOLYNDRA ESTABLISHED AND  SUPPORTED 



MORONICALLY BY THE WHITE HOUSE AND THREW HALF A TRILLION



DOLLARS OF TAXPAYER MONEY DOWN THE OBAMA SEWER OF



CORRUPTION.

===============================================



by Linda Jordan





If Obama is using a stolen social security number, he is disrespecting the White House, the office of the presidency, and every American citizen



(Sep. 26, 2011) — Here is the introductory letter that will go out with a mass email to DC about my e-verify results and follow up letter to Obama. You can share it if you want. Linda



September 25, 2011



To whom it may concern:



For years we have had credible evidence that Barack Obama is a fraud, a fake and a forger.



And there wasn’t one single person with the legal responsibility and authority to protect our nation from this usurper, who was willing to do their job.



Not one ‘Catch Me if You Can’ FBI agent?

No one in the CIA, the Military?

Not one Judge or Attorney General?

No one?

No one in the Senate or Congress.

No one in the Social Security Administration?

No one in the Hawaii Department of Heath?

No one in the Department of Elections?



Nobody! Nobody cared for our republic!



My head reeling from the full realization of what this meant I finally stopped fretting about it and asked myself, “Well, what are you going to do?”



I decided I was one of the employers of the POTUS and I registered with the government run E-Verify System. Employers are required by law to check if their employees are eligible to work in the United States.



On August 17th, 2011, I ran Barack Obama’s name, birth date, citizenship status and the Social Security Number he has been using since 1980 and on last year's tax return, a number issued out of Connecticut when he was a teenager in Hawaii, through an E-Verify check.



I got back a “Notice of Mismatch with Social Security Administration Records: SSA record does not verify, other reason.”



In a nutshell Obama’s SSN had been flagged with a Special Indicator Code primarily reserved for cases of fraud. (see the full story and documentation at World Net Daily article by Jerome Corsi, 9/12/11)



Today I sent a letter to Obama, as I am required to do by law, informing him of the Notice of Mismatch and asking him to confirm or correct the data I entered in to the E-Verify System.  I will pursue this until I get the truth.



Obama may not be a natural born citizen but he is a natural born liar. Why would anyone let him get away with the crime of the century?



Linda Jordan



AND LET HIM GO ON DESTROYING AMERICA?!!!!!!


DOES NOBODY IN POWER LOVE OUR COUNTRY ENOUGH
TO INVESTIGATE THIS TRAITOR?????

PRESSSURE TO BAN BIBLE IN CHRISTIAN COUNTRY

Somewhere on the site is an article from a year or two ago, where two visiting American evangelists were approached by Moslem "neighborhood police" in a Northern England city and told to stop preaching and promoting the Bible!



In response to their protest that they had every right to do so, the "police" replied that it would be best for them to leave - for their own safety - as once the "police" left, as they intended to do, the Moslem residents would come and beat them up or even kill them!



"Stay if you want", the parting Islamic (religion of peace) "neighorhood police" said cynically. "You have been duly warned. We are not  coming back if you are attacked".



http://alanpetersworld.blogspot.com/2011/09/islam-and-gays-pressure-to-ban-bible.html



ONLY OBAMA HAS FREEDOM OF SPEECH - DESPERATE, REPETITIVE SPEECH

Think the message is getting through to Congress? In five speeches during one week, President Obama has said "pass this bill" or some variant of it 90 times.



18 times in his speech to Congress,

18 times at the University of Richmond,

12 times in the Rose Garden (when he officially unveiled his 155-page bill),

18 times at a high school in Columbus, and

24 times at North Carolina State University.



And it includes rallying calls to cheering crowds like this: "Pass this bill.



And includes some $1.3 TRILLION in New Taxes!!!



VIDEOS OF THIS HAVE BEEN SCRUBBED FROM THE INTERNET BY OBAMA'S WHITE HOUSE TEAM SET UP TO RESTRICT OR SHUT DOWN ANY FREE SPEECH  HE DOES NOT APPROVE!!!



"If you want construction workers on the worksite, pass this bill.



If you want teachers in the classroom, pass this bill.



You want small business owners to hire new people, pass this bill.



If you want veterans to get their fair share of opportunity that they helped create, pass this bill.



If you want a tax break, pass this bill."



Like the disappearance of HALF A TRILLION Dollars down the drain of the Obama Solyndra Solar panel project, all the above exhortations and aims were supposed to have been covered by the almost $800  Billion Stimulus bill he rammed through a Democrat controlled House, Senate and White House, which not only failed to work but the funds cannot be accounted nor their final use identified.



As was poignantly said in the recent debates: "my neighbor's two dogs created more shovel ready  work than Obama's administration did!"



WAKE UP AMERICA! WHILE THERE IS STILL SOMETHING TO WAKE UP TO!



Finally discovered: how America elected the current gangster to the Oval Office. Or a look at "we the people" who elected him!

ANOTHER INSULTING "CHANGE" BY OBAMA & MORE

Alan note:  the  letter below points to the disrespect Obama feels for our military and underlines his concentrated  effort to diminish our military capability and his reducing the value of soldiers killed for  our country and refusing to thank them.



                      

Today I was incensed at the conclusion of a traditional Serbian-Orthodox funeral for my beloved 85 year old uncle, Daniel Martich, who proudly served in the US Army during The Korean Conflict.



During the committal service at a Pittsburgh cemetery, the local military detachment performed their ritual, then folded and presented the American Flag to my aunt. As I'm sure you have witnessed during military funerals, a soldier bends to one knee and recites a scripted message to a surviving relative that begins 'On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation, I wish to present you with this flag in appreciation for your husband's service.'



However, today the dialogue was 'On behalf of the Secretary of Defense and a grateful nation ...'



After the service I approached the soldier who presented the flag to my aunt to inquire about the change in language. His response was "The White House notified all military funeral service detachments to immediately remove 'the President' and insert 'the Secretary of Defense'.



I couldn't believe what I heard and the soldier smiled and said "You can draw your own conclusion sir but that was the order". He, too, was ashamed of what he was required to say.



This president has taken off the gloves. My only response to this endless cesspool of Anti-American rhetoric dripping from his mouth is to borrow a phrase (with one minor change) uttered by another temporary Washington resident living in government housing: "Today for the first time in my adult life I was ASHAMED of my country".



I did not serve in the military but my love of country parallels that of people like my late uncle who bled Red, White and Blue. As a second generation Serbian-American who's heritage produced many patriotic military men and women who fought for freedom both in The United States as well as in the former Yugoslavia (most recently in Kosovo against the slaughter of Serbs by Muslim extremists).



I implore you to make the American people aware of this little-known or, at least, publicly acknowledged fact.



May God Bless you and your family during these difficult times. Your voice of reason is a welcome change from the insanity plastered across the country by the liberal media. Keep up the great work and thank you for your service to our country.



Sincerely,



John G. Martich

Weirton, WV

 More Obama "change" results!












======================================================


The problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners.


The people that live in the house did not earn the house, but were loaned the property from the true owners, the taxpayers.


Because of this, the residents do not have the "pride of ownership" that comes with the hard work necessary.


In fact, the opposite happens and the residents resent their benefactors because the very house is a constant reminder that they themselves did not earn the right to live in the house.


They do not appreciate the value of the property and see no need to maintain or respect it in any way.


The result is the same whether you are talking about a studio apartment or a magnificent mansion full of priceless antiques.


If the people who live there do not feel they earned the privilege, they will make this known through their actions.



What do all these pics have in common?






































They all show a basic disrespect for The White House and its furnishings!





The Resolute Desk was built from the timbers of the HMS Resolute and was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes.



It is considered a national treasure and icon of the presidency.





The White House belongs to the People of America and should be more revered than to use anything and everything for a foot rest!



What all these shots have in common is that they continue to prove that this thug has no class!


SO HERE'S A MESSAGE FROM THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA:


Mr. Obama, you are not in a hut in Kenya or Indonesia,


or public housing in Chicago


With all due respect, get your


f*****g feet off our furniture! 



AND STOP DESTROYING AMERICA WITH YOUR GANGSTER GOVERNMENT RUN AMOK!

(read the article below)










OBAMA'S THUGGISH GOVERNMENT RUN AMOK - LIKE HIM!

Just imagine. You want to build a home, so you buy a $23,000 piece of land in a residential subdivision in your hometown and get started. The government then tells you to stop, threatens you with $40 million in fines and is not kidding.



That's the case now before the U.S. Supreme Court, with briefs being filed today by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of a Priest Lake, Idaho, family, Chantell and Mike Sackett.



Attorney Damien Schiff, who will be arguing before the high court in the case, said it's simply a case of a government run amok, and it poses a potential threat to perhaps not every landowner across the nation, but untold millions.



"Constitutional Chaos: What Happens When the Government Breaks Its Own Laws"



The Sacketts, Schiff said, "bought property, and the government in effect has ordered them to treat the property like a public park."



"The EPA has not paid them a dime for that privilege," he said. "The (Obama)  regime we have operating now allows the EPA to take property without having to pay for it, or giving the owners the right to their day in court.""



Alan note: Obama is using the EPA like a Chicago gangster to ruin a huge food producing area in California for a tiny fish,  to prevent oil drilling on land or offshore, to prevent you growing your own food in your own home or small garden plots  and in every way possible to prevent your independence from his all intrusive Marxist regime. It's getting harder and harder to distinguish his  governance from that of a Stalin - except he uses the EPA and an all encompassing Obama healthcare bill (much of it a slush fund financing of his radical agendas rather than anything to do with our good  health)  instead of "gulags" and executions to impose his will.



Through "cap and trade" and the EPA Obama will close down 20% of coal operated  electricity plants starting January 2012! Thus  shutting down a huge chunk of our power generation capability and  making us more reliant on imported oil from his Arab and Brazilian friends' sources.



Does anyone STILL HAVE DOUBTS of his nefarious, destructive  intentions AGAINST the USA?



Are you still going to suicidally vote for YOUR OWN DOWNFALL by  voting for Obama our terrorist enemy within?





Many fear that deaths are on the horizon as America revolts against this narcissistic megalomaniac who thinks he is the "chosen one" of all religions but specially Islam. Or the very least the Black Jesus his followers used to call him during his campaign.



AND HE THROWS HIS MILLION MAN CIVILIAN SECURITY FORCE (already partly funded in hidden aspects of his ObamaCare bill), plus Unions and ACORN type thugs at us and bloodshed ensues.



How mentally stable - other than  a "stable, consistent" adherence to his (weird) sense of his at own greatness - is a huge question that needs to be resolved. More so even than his dubious eligibility to be in a position of power to destroy our nation and much of the world.



If you need evidence on how corrupt self-serving unions and union officials can be, then please consider Ex-labor chief's 1-day rehire nets $158,000 city pension





A retired Chicago labor leader secured a $158,000 public pension — roughly five times greater than what a typical retired public-service worker in the Windy City receives — after being rehired for just one day of active duty on the city payroll, local news reports said.



According to The Chicago Tribune, Dennis Gannon stands to collect approximately $5 million in city pension funds during his lifetime. He now draws the pension while working for a hedge fund, the Tribune reported.



Gannon, former president of the Chicago Federation of Labor, was able to take a long leave from a city job to work for a union and then receive a city pension based on a high union salary. That arrangement is allowed under a state law signed by Gov. Jim Thompson on his last day in office in 1991, according to an investigation by the Tribune and WGN-TV.



The change has enabled a couple dozen labor leaders to become potential millionaires.



What is different in Gannon’s case is that he became eligible for the especially lucrative pension deal only because the city rehired the former Streets and Sanitation Department worker for one day in 1994, before granting him an indefinite leave of absence, according to the investigation. He retired from the city job in 2004 at age 50.



Gannon’s pension is so high that it exceeds federal limits and required Chicago’s pension fund to file special paperwork with the Internal Revenue Service to give it to him, the Tribune reported.



"I am extremely proud of my many years of service to the city of Chicago and the working men and women of organized labor," Gannon wrote in a statement provided to the Tribune.

The Tribune reports ...



The pension came on top of Gannon's union salary, which had grown to more than $240,000. He now draws the pension while working for a hedge fund, Grosvenor Capital Management, that does work with public pensions, including the Teachers Retirement System of Illinois. The firm also was one of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's largest campaign contributors.



The PLF organization representing the property owner has prepared a video to explain the EPA case, which is being heard by the SUPREME Court!

MORE EXECUTED IN IRAN

IN THE LAST THREE WEEKS OVER 50 MORE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY EXECUTED BY THE MULLAH REGIME IN THEIR SUPPRESSION OF FREEDOM.



AND OBAMA IS TOO BUSY WITH HIS CLASS WARFARE RE-ELECTION TACTICS TO CARE.



NOR CARE THAT THE DEATHS IN SYRIAN STREETS, RAPIDLY RISING INTO THOUSANDS  - MOSTLY AT THE HANDS OF IRANIAN SUPPRESSION FORCES  - SENT TO IMPLEMENT WHAT THEY HAD LEARNED IN  IRANIAN STREETS ADDING TO THE MYRIADS  THESE MURDEROUS SAVAGES PUT TO DEATH.



ARE ALL THESE  DEATHS, LIKE HIS NEW TAXES,  PAYING A FAIR SHARE FOR PROTESTING OBAMA'S ISLAMIC IRANIAN,  ALLIES HE ENABLES AND SUPPORTS.



EVEN FORMER AMERICA SUPPORTER SAUDI ARABIA HAS DROPPED OBAMA LIKE A HOT POTATO! MOSTLY OVER IRAN AND PARTLY OVER OBAMA BRINGING DOWN MOBARRAK OF EGYPT!



EVERY CHANGE HE HAS TRIGGERED HAS BENEFITTED THE MOSLEM BROTHEROOD AND THEIR RISE TO ISLAMIC WORLD POWER.



HOW CAN ANYONE EVER VOTE FOR OBAMA AGAIN? EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES  BECOMES A HUGE AMERICAN DISASTER AND WORLDWIDE PLAGUE!

IRAN HANGS 22 MORE

Exact statistics are hard to get as there are countless "unofficial" executions among the 100 or so private prisons run by a string of power centers among the various clerical and paramilitary leaders.



The average this year appears to follow last year at one execution every EIGHT HOURS!



Like the Moslem Brotherhood, Iran is also a bedfellow of the terrorist ridden White House leadership.



CLICK YOUR REFRESH BUTTON IF ANTIMULLAH DOES NOT LOAD THE FIRST TIME.  SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SOME INTERFERENCE IS  BEING ENCOUNTERED.

Russia has sent two nuclear-powered submarines to patrol Eastern Mediterranean waters around Cyprus and enforce the island's right to explore for undersea oil and gas in its territorial seas, according to information from Defencenet.gr, citing a Russian FM spokesman.



Alexander Lukashevich said that Russia supports Cyprus and guarantees its security if it is threatened: "Under the UN Convention on International Law, among 162 other signatory states, including Cyprus, each state has sovereign rights in its EEZ for exploring, exploiting and protecting both live and non-living natural resources, including water, the seabed and subsoil," said Lukashevich in comments made on August 19th and reported by Defencenet.gr (in Greek).



So far there has been no reaction from the foreign ministry on reports that Russian submarines will be sent to protect Cyprus from any potential military threat from Turkey. A telephone call to the foreign ministry for comment has not yet been returned. A telephone call to the press attache at the Russian Embassy in Nicosia has also not yet been returned.



The submarines are due in early September and are being interpreted as a clear warning to Turkey to stay away from Noble Energy's drilling sites in Block 12. Noble is set to start exploring for undersea gas at the beginning of October along with Israeli energy company DELEK, which has reached an agreement with Noble Energy to share in its licensing deal with Cyprus, reported Globes.co.il.



Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis just wrapped up a visit to Israel to discuss undersea hydrocarbon exploration with President of Israel Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman. Israel and Cyprus' interests are closely aligned after the two countries signed an agreement delimiting their maritime borders in late 2010. The agreement also led to cooperation on undersea reserves exploitation and closer diplomatic relations, with Peres expected to visit Cyprus in the near future.



Turkey has also not yet commented on the development and is one of the countries which has not signed the UN Convention on the Law of the Seas, which has been in force since 1994. There are 162 countries that have ratified the Convention, including Cyprus and Greece.



On August 9th, Turkey renewed its veiled threats towards Cyprus on the issue of undersea gas and oil exploration, with a statement from its foreign ministry saying that "the Greek Cypriot Administration does not represent in law or in fact the Turkish Cypriots and Cyprus as a whole."



Bilateral agreements between Cyprus, Lebanon and Israel are "unilateral actions" which could derail settlement talks, give rise to new conflicts and increase tensions in the region, according to the statement.



"These unlawful acts create tension in the region, compromise and prejudge the Turkish Cypriots’ existing and inherent equal rights over the natural resources of the island," says Turkey's foreign ministry.



In response, recently-appointed foreign minister Erato Kozakou-Marcoulis said that the statements were 'posturing' from Turkey and that she would complain to the UN Security Council and the EU. And President Demetris Christofias called on the international community to end its silence on Turkey's threatening attitude to Cyprus.



Behind the scenes, the international community backs Cyprus on its oil exploration, according to US cables released by Wikileaks.ch. The government's plan to allow US companies like Noble Energy and others to drill in its Exclusive Economic Zone is well within its legal rights and Turkey does not have a "legal leg to stand on", says a 2007 confidential cable from the US Embassy in Nicosia.

THIS MONDAY! TURKEY INCITING WAR WITH ISRAEL - AS SOON AS MONDAY!

MONDAY??



THE REBIRTH OF THE TURKISH OTTOMAN EMPIRE (MOSLEM)  WITH THE BACKING OF IRAN AND OBAMA?   



Apparently, unless Erdogan  backs down, come  Monday, September  19th, Turkey is starting  an undeclared war with Israel and escalating the  anti-PPK Kurdish attacks  in Iraq, with Iran providing pincer movement shelling, and possibly land based incursions. Both countries have animosity based on fears of Kurdish secessionist  movements inside Turkish, Iraqi and Iranian Kurdish tribes.



Saddam Hussein used biological weapons against the Kurds inside Iraq, partly for the same reason.



Turks seem to be planning to take Kastelorizo, a small Geek island off their coast, while Turkish Cyprus military moves on Greek Cyprus.



The Greek-Israeli mutual defense pact is now invoked and Israeli air components set in motion to be stationed at Greek bases.



The Turkish navy wants to attempt to limit Israel's navy to a 12-mile limit thus away from Block 12 oil area.



As further excuse Turkey, will use any attempt by Israel to stop any Turkish Gaza bound  "aid" flotilla with immediate military response!



Apparently the action will start Monday when the American rig begins drilling off Cyrpus...



The new Ottoman Empire is rising. Or is Erdogan's hand being forced?



Another step in the deteriorating relations between Israel and Turkey took place on Thursday, with hints that Israel is behind the leakage of tapes of secret talks betwen Ankara's intelligence personnel and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), a disclosure that shocked the Turkish public and put Erdogan's government on the defensive.



Erdogan, obviously furious, sought to defend National Intelligence Organization Chief, Hakan Fidan, in his release to the press. He had previously denied the taped conversations took place.



“We know certain circles have targeted Hakan Fidan in the past,” Erdogan said in reference to past Israeli claims that Fidan is pro-Iranian.



According to Turkey's Hurriyet Daily News, comments made last year by Defense Minister Ehud Barak on the issue caused a rift between Jerusalem and Ankara and affected the cooperation between Turkey's intelligence services and Israel's Mossad.



“We are investigating how the leakage happened," Erdogan said. "Even if Mr. Hakan makes a mistake, we would not sacrifice him for this reason. This has revealed the ill-intention of the perpetrators of this leakage. This won’t bring anything to them."



The Turkish leader blasted the opposition for using the leaked tapes as political weapons.

MOSLEM OBAMA'S DOUBLE PURPOSE USE OF "GOD OF JACOB" IN 9/11 SPEECH and ARROGANCE!









Like Palestinian terrorist Yasser Arafart, who said one thing in English and quite the contrary in Arabic, our deceiver in chief, Oba-Hussein Obambi, relies on the majority of Christians not being as well informed in our Scriptures as ardent Moslems with Islam - and too preoccupied with surviving the financial catastrophe he has brought down on all of us - to catch, let alone know the double-meaning of his use of "OUR GOD OF JACOB"!



In Islamic context means Allah!!!



Hypocritical Obama can insist he was being true to Islam with this "taghiyah" (lying to promote/protect Islam) and used reference to Jacob to preach to us infidels that we should turn/convert to Islam!!!!!!!!!!


In islam Jacob is revered as a prophet guided by God. He is described as a leader, a good-doer, a possessor of power and vision, a holder of prayer and a man in service to God. In muslim belief, Jacob taught the message of God to his twelve sons...



Jacob's last advice to his people:



The whole of the Children of Israel were called to bow down to faith in Islam (Submission to God) before Jacob died.



Note: Linguistically Islam is not a "religion" of peace as "Dhimmis" (apologists) try to force us to believe but of total SUBMISSION to Allah and only Allah (and by proxy, his clerics).





Jacob wanted to make sure that his children die only in Islam and, therefore, took one last promise from them. When he asked them who they would worship after his death, they replied "We shall worship thy God and the God of thy fathers - of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac".[33]



Although the death-bed scene is embellished upon in Jewish Tradition, and mentioned in the Book of Genesis, the Qur'an mentions it to emphasize upon the notion that Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael and Jacob were all Muslims, as they bowed down in full faith to God and God alone. The Qur'an narrates:



And this was the legacy that Abraham left to his sons, and so did Jacob; "Oh my sons! Allah hath chosen the Faith for you; then die not except in the Faith of Islam. (As Obama and his Moslem advisors in the White House well know and helped insert this slap on the face into the speech.)









Were ye witnesses when death appeared before Jacob? Behold, he said to his sons: "What will ye worship after me?" They said: "We shall worship Thy God and the God of thy fathers, of Abraham, Isma'il and Isaac,- the one (True) God: To Him we bow (in Islam)."



—Qur'an, sura 2 (Al-Baqara), ayah 132-133[34]



Jacob is very special in Islam for carrying on the legacy left off by his great forefathers. God certainly bestowed His utmost grace upon Jacob and chose him to be among the most exalted men. The Qur'an frequently mentions Jacob as a man of might and vision and stresses he was of the company of the good and elect.



As the Qur'an says:



That was the reasoning about Us, which We (Allah) gave to Abraham (to use) against his people: We raise whom We will, degree after degree: for thy Lord is full of wisdom and knowledge.



We gave him Isaac and Jacob: all (three) guided: and before him, We guided Noah, and among his progeny, David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Moses, and Aaron: thus do We reward those who do good:



—Qur'an, sura 6 Al-An'am, ayah 83-84[35]







AND by Peter Wehner



Presidencies can go through various stages in terms of their effect on the opposition – from eliciting respect and some amount of fear, to provoking anger, to becoming the object of ridicule.



Barack Obama has reached the third stage.









Dana Milbank of the Washington Post has (click link to read more ) written in a column  in which he cites passages from Obama's speech to a joint session of Congress last night and then chronicles the reaction among congressional Republicans, which included chuckles, guffaws and giggles. Hostility to Obama has given way to indifference to what he says; witness the fact the GOP did not even feel the need to provide a televised response to Obama's speech. And of course, it didn't help that the president's address was relegated to pre-primetime, in order not to compete with an NFL game

.

Just as significantly, Milbank reports there were empty seats on the Democratic side last night.



"Democrats lumbered to their feet to give the president several standing ovations, but they struggled at times to demonstrate enthusiasm," according to Milbank. "When Obama proposed payroll tax cuts for small businesses, three Democrats stood to applaud. Summer jobs for disadvantaged youth brought six Democrats to their feet, and a tax credit for hiring the long-term unemployed produced 11 standees. Obama spoke quickly, urgently, even angrily. Rep. Jesse Jackson (D-Ill.) stared at the ceiling. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) scanned the gallery. Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) was seen reading a newspaper. And Republicans, when they weren't giggling, were mostly silent."



Milbank added, "Presidential addresses to Congress are often dramatic moments. This one felt like a sideshow. Usually, the press gallery is standing-room-only; this time, only 26 of 90 seats were claimed by the deadline. Usually, some members arrive in the chamber hours early to score a center-aisle seat; 90 minutes before Thursday's speech, only one Democrat was so situated."



As Jimmy Carter can tell you, for a president to become an object of disdain and apathy is a very dangerous place to find himself.







It has been a stunning fall from grace for Obama, a man who, upon taking office, was routinely compared to Kennedy, to FDR, and even to Lincoln. One is tempted to say those comparisons were unfair to Obama, except that he did so much to invite them.



By now, the cult-like effect Obama had on his supporters is a distant, fading memory.



The Greek columns built for his convention speech now look simply silly, as does Obama's promise to heal the earth and reverse the ocean tide. His core appeal was aesthetic, and hence fleeting. It turns out Obama really was best equipped to be a community organizer and perhaps a state senator and perhaps not very much more than that.



But Obama, a man of extraordinary self-regard, (Alan note: some have termed it Narcissism but verges on Megalomania) decided he was the world-historical person we had been waiting for.



(What can one say about a person who surrounded himself with aides who referred to him as "Black Jesus" during the campaign?)



In a coincidence that calls to mind William Blake's "fearful symmetry" phrase, it was also Dana Milbank who in July 2008, months before Obama was elected,(click link)  reported that Obama attended an "adoration session" with Democratic lawmakers in the Cannon Caucus Room, where even committee chairmen arrived early, "as if for the State of the Union."



Inside, according to a witness, Obama told the House members, "This is the moment…that the world is waiting for," adding: "I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."



Some of us (click on link) warned at the time that any man who believes he is "the moment that the world is waiting for" and views himself as "the symbol of the possibility and best traditions of America" is an individual of staggering arrogance.

TRYING TO HYPNOTIZE US? PASS THE BILL, PASS THE BILL! PRETTY PLEASE! PASS THE BILL! I NEED THE MONEY





DESPERATE DUFUSS:  



BOEHNER, I NEED MONEY ! I DEMAND YOUR MONEY! MY UNION BUDDIES WANT YOUR MONEY! GET ME RE-ELECTED! I HAVE TO PAY THEM WITH YOUR MONEY! I'M BROKE, MY CREDIT IS SHOT! I USED UP ALL THE MONEY THAT WAS THERE!



Having rammed his ObamaCare down our throats by using his control (at the time) of both Houses, Obama - as you can hear from the audio below - personifies "madness", which is doing (in his case "saying") the same thing over and over and hoping for a different result. Hoping to undo the last November profile of voters by insisting what HE wants without regard to what "we the people" want.

OBAMA POLICY ENCOURAGING THUGGERY AT LOCAL & NATIONAL LEVELS

By Joe Kovacs





The mayor of Quartzsite, Ariz., the town seething in vitriol since police forcibly removed a woman from speaking at a public meeting despite the mayor's objections lost in a recall election last night, but claims the "corrupt" town council fixed the results to force him out.



Mayor Ed Foster of Quartzsite, Ariz., says his town is filled with massive corruption among government officials.





"They found a whole bunch of early ballots they could stuff the box with," said Mayor Ed Foster, telling WND the election was "absolutely" stolen.



Foster says at the polling place, he was winning by a 2-to-1 margin over former Town Councilman and Quartzsite Fire Department Capt. Jose Lizarraga.



But there had been 328 early ballots cast, and 208 of those went to Lizarraga, giving the win to Lizarraga by a final tally of 289 votes to 230.



"There's no doubt about it [being a fixed election]," said Foster. "The early voting was so obscenely different. ... Whether people voted early or late should not have affected the weight of the vote."



A former Hitler youth gives a chilling, but life-saving warning to America in "Defeating the Totalitarian Lie," just $4.95 today only!



But the outcome is not deterring Foster from continuing his fight against alleged corruption in his rural town. In fact, he plans on running again for mayor, as primaries are slated for March, and a general election in May.



"They stole it from me. I'm gonna take it back," he said.








Police Chief Gilbert preventing free speech at City Council meeting




On Saturday, hundreds of Americans – some from as far away as Alaska and Connecticut – descended on Quartzsite for what was called a Liberty Fest to take a stand against government corruption. Some videos have been posted on YouTube with highlights of the event.













Mayor Foster, who's been at war with his own council and Police Chief Jeff Gilbert, whom he has called corrupt and "a Nazi," believes potentially millions of dollars of taxpayer money is being illegally funneled through secret checks to unnamed council members.



Gilbert has never responded to numerous requests by WND for comment, but he was quoted in the Desert Freedom Press as being concerned that citizens who opposed the town council were domestic terrorists!

UNION THUG WITH CONCEALED WEAPON
(PROTEST SIGN GLUED TO BASEBALL BAT)




 
Longshoremen storm Washington  port over labor dispute



By MIKE BAKER



LONGVIEW, Wash. -- Hundreds of Longshore workers stormed the Port of Longview, overpowered security guards, damaged rail cars and dumped grain at the center of a labor dispute that has spread to Seattle and Tacoma ports, officials said Thursday.



(Alan note: reports allege the attackers also wielded steel crowbars not just baseball bats)!



Six guards were detained for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.



No one was hurt, and nobody has been arrested. Most of the protesters returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines and spilling grain from car at the EGT terminal, he said.



A court hearing was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Tacoma, in which a judge is expected to consider alleged violations by the union of a previous restraining order.



The International Longshore and Warehouse Union believes it has the right to work at the facility, but the company has hired a contractor that's staffing a workforce of other union laborers.



In Seattle and Tacoma, a wildcat strike shut down both ports after hundreds of Longshore workers failed to show up for work on Thursday.

"It appears the members have taken action on their own," Merrilees said.



He had not seen any statements by the local workers about why they didn't show up for work in Seattle and Tacoma, but a connection with the activities in Longview was likely.



One possible factor in the wildcat strike was a photograph circulating on the Internet of ILWU President Bob McElrath in police custody in Longview, Merrilees said.



"I think in the minds of many members that may have been a motivating factor," he said.



Port of Seattle spokeswoman Charla Skaggs said work was not happening at the port's shipping terminals on Thursday. The terminals are leased to operators who deal directly with Longshore workers, she added.



The protesters in Longview have portrayed themselves as being on the front line in the struggle for jobs and benefits among American workers in an economic downturn. But while union strife has flared up around the country - most notably in Wisconsin - the aggressive tactics seen in Longview have been a rarity in recent labor disputes.



Thursday's violence at Longview was first reported by Kelso radio station KLOG.



Police from several agencies in southwest Washington, the Washington State Patrol and Burlington Northern Santa Fe ( BNI - news - people ) responded to the violence to secure the scene that followed a demonstration Wednesday.



"We're not surprised," Duscha said. "A lot of the protesters were telling us this in only the start."



One sergeant was threatened with baseball bats and retreated, Duscha said. "One officer with hundreds of Longshoremen? He used the better part of discretion."



The train was the first grain shipment to arrive at Longview. It arrived Wednesday night after police arrested 19 demonstrators who tried to block the tracks. They were led by ILWU International President Robert McEllrath, who said they would return.



The blockade appeared to defy a federal restraining order issued last week against the union after it was accused of assaults and death threats.



EGT chief executive Larry Clarke said it was unfortunate that law enforcement needed to make arrests.
