Obama uses iffy math on deficit pledge
09-09-2009  •  AP 
President Barack Obama used only-in-Washington accounting when he promised to overhaul the nation's health care system without adding "one dime" to the deficit. By conventional arithmetic, Democratic plans would drive up the deficit by billions of dollars.  Read Full Story

SSTF Shocker - $6B August Deficit
09-09-2009  •  Bruce Krasting via Economic Policy Journal 
The Social Security Trust Fund reported an August net deficit of $5.865 Billion. This is the largest monthly deficit in nineteen years. Base on recent years data it was not surprising the Fund ran a deficit in August. But the magnitude of the shortfall was a surprise to me. This deficit is now the seventh in the past twelve months. That pace has never been seen before. We deal with very big numbers these days. 100rds of billions and trillions are how we measure things. So a $6b monthly deficit for the Fund would appear to be a ho-hum. That is not correct. This is an important number. The Actuarial analysis of the Fund is misdirected. Their focus is based on the future value. It should be focused on the here and now. In the June annual report the Trustees concluded that the Fund would be broke in 2037. This conclusion is so far into the future that it is easy for everyone involved to say, “this is a next year problem, health care comes first”. Stephen Goss the Fund’s head honcho s  Read Full Story

The previous three Republicans have and there wasn't any stir, aside from some Democratic nitpicking about White House expenses, proving that neither party has a monopoly on pettiness.

Congress and the Obama administration have lost faith in [ahem] self-regulated markets. Together, they're writing the most sweeping new regulations over finance since the Great Depression. And in this ever-more-connected global economy, Washington is working with its partners through the G-20 group of nations to develop worldwide rules to govern finance.

Galbraith, a professor and scholar at the University of Texas at Austin, is the son of the late economist John Kenneth Galbraith, whose books in the 1950s influenced how Americans viewed economics and American capitalism.

(Irony?) This blog is all about empowering consumers (whether you have been mugged or not) to protect their money and sensitive personal information. Last week, the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) issued a warning to consumers to be aware of: "... fraudulent solicitations that appear to be made with the approval or involvement of the Federal Reserve, Federal Reserve officials, or other U.S. government officials. These solicitations promise bogus financial services or large sums of money in exchange for either payment or personal information that can then be used to access a consumer's bank account."  Read Full Story

The chance that the dollar will be replaced by the Chinese yuan seems to be growing, as is China's determination to make it happen. The list of potential implications is very long, and includes several scenarios that are almost apocalyptic. Let’s consider the Top Five: Global Gloom Leads to U.S. Doom: The U.S. dollar goes into freefall for the simple reason that if no country has to hold dollars any longer, they won’t. Instead " thanks to the ragged state of the U.S. government’s finances " many countries will dump greenbacks fast as they can, which will only put additional pressure on an already-strained U.S. financial system, which in turn will further damage our economy. Inflation Inflates: Inflation will strike here with a vengeance, as anything bought, sold or priced in dollars will instantly rise in price to offset this fall.

Traficant still evokes strong emotion

“I plan to get right back in it!’’ boomed James Traficant, the former Democratic representative from Ohio’s 17th district, announcing to 1,200 cheering supporters Sunday he just might still have a little of the old magic under that memorable rug.

Just like in his salad days, Traficant promised that he would take on the federal government that he said “cheated’’ to put him behind bars for racketeering and bribery. As the crowd shouted “Run for Senate,’’ he trashed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and caused a frenzy when he proclaimed: “If we can take care of people all over the world, we can take care of people here!’’

Calling himself “a congressman and a convict,’’ Traficant, released Wednesday from prison, invoked imprisoned Nelson Mandela and said he “knew America better’’ because of his years behind bars.

In the heated debates on health-care reform, not enough attention is being paid to the huge financial windfalls ObamaCare will dole out to unions"or to the provisions in the various bills in Congress that will help bring about the forced unionization of the health-care industry. Tucked away in thousands of pages of complex new rules, regulations and mandates are special privileges and giveaways that could have devastating consequences for the health-care sector and the American economy at large. The Senate version opens the door to implement forced unionization schemes pursued by former Govs. Rod Blagojevich of Illinois in 2005 and Gray Davis of California in 1999. Both men repaid tremendous political debts to Andy Stern and his Service Employees International Union (SEIU) by reclassifying state-reimbursed in-home health-care (and child-care) contractors as state employees"and forcing them to pay union dues.

He was serving home confinement for failing to pay income taxes on his $1 million prize for winning the first season of the show.

During the interviews, Hatch said the trial judge discriminated against him because he was gay. The ACLU says Hatch has a right to criticize the government.

EDITORIAL: Obama's doves come home to roost
09-09-2009  •  Washington Times 
It was an article of faith to Democrats during the latter years of the George W. Bush administration that Afghanistan was the "right war," in contrast to the "wrong war" in Iraq. Taking a vocal stand for Afghanistan enabled them to slam President Bush's unpopular Iraq policy while adopting a fashionably hawkish stand on the war on terrorism. No one likes al Qaeda, and this posture gave then-candidate Barack Obama the chance to say tough-guy things like, "We must make it clear that if Pakistan cannot or will not act, we will take out high-level terrorist targets like bin Laden if we have them in our sights." Because Iraq was the idee fixe of the antiwar crowd, talking about Afghanistan wasn't likely to alienate the doves so long as Iraq was roundly denounced. Anyway, they knew it was just political posturing, right? What a difference a year makes. Conditions in Iraq have improved dramatically, and security in Afghanistan is deteriorating.

Near the start of this year Ron Paul (R-Texas) introduced H.R. 1207, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009. The bill was referred to the House Committee on Financial Services.

Both bills have received a tremendous groundswell of grass-roots support. Much of the support is coming from ordinary people who have become aware of the fact that the Federal Reserve has created trillions of dollars literally out of nothing during the past calendar year in its effort to micromanage its way out of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression....  Read Full Story

ObamaCare and America's Entitlement Kids

   In anticipation of President Obama's speech to a joint session of Congress this evening, the Center for Individual Freedom released a new video entitled "ObamaCare and America's Entitlement Kids," which highlights the fundamental flaws in President Obama's plan to reform health care. The video points out that U.S. spending obligations for current entitlements, including Medicare and Social Security, is already more than $51 trillion. Broken down by household, that's the equivalent of forcing every American family to bear the costs of raising two additional children. But instead of fixing the entitlement problem, President Obama's health care plan would add an additional $9 trillion in entitlement obligations. That's like adding one-third of another government child to the two each American household is already forced to support. Watch the video below.

Defending NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion, Johnny Benson, and his No. 1 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra, began the 2009 season without sponsor.

After getting a two race deal from K&N Filters, Benson's team continued on without sponsorship.

Then Johnny Benson found some sponsorship. It was a gun company. The name was undisclosed, and Benson and the team submitted it to NASCAR for approval.

NASCAR came back and told Benson that the sponsor was disapproved.

But the Fox-owned Speed TV, which broadcasts most of the truck races, threw a wrench into those plans by saying it would avoid putting the sponsor on the air, according to a story at MLive.com.

"We have somebody in the works to do it, but TV said they would avoid us if we had this sponsor, and it's a gun manufacturer," Benson said. "We are not sure why that would be the case, but that's the information they are giving us. We have to choose whether we want to head down that road or not. We would hate to have good finishes and run in the top three and have TV avoid us for that reason.

"Originally, I said NASCAR had revoked that, and it wasn't. NASCAR called me Tuesday after I had said that they had shot it down," Benson added. "Apparently it is the TV. It is a very interesting scenario. We have had other (gun) manufacturers in there, and why it is an issue today, I don't know. I haven't had a conversation with them  Read Full Story

Twenty Minutes With The President Charlie Sheen - Obama Exclusive
09-09-2009  •  Charlie SHeen 

[Riviting ED]I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with our 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, while he was out promoting his health care reform initiative. I requested 30 minutes given the scope and detail of my inquiry; they said I could have 20. Twenty minutes, 1200 seconds, not a lot of time to question the President about one of the most important events in our nation’s history. The following is a transcript of our remarkable discussion.

Charlie Sheen " Good afternoon Mr. President, thank you so much for taking time out of your demanding schedule.

President Barack Obama " My pleasure, the content of your request seemed like something I should carve out a few minutes for.

CS " I should point out that I voted for you, as your promises of hope and change, transparency and accountability, as well as putting government back into the hands of the America  Read Full Story

Red Flag To Fly Over White House (I smell a deal)
09-09-2009  •  Chuck Baldwin 

Lest anyone doubt the communist leanings of President Barack Obama, look no further than to his decision to hoist the Red Chinese flag (for the first time in history) over the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, September 20.

According to China Daily, "Chinese associations in the United States had applied to hold a ceremony in front of the US President's residence to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of PRC [People's Republic of China] . . .

"More than 1,000 people will attend the ceremony and the performances held after it, according to Zhao Luqun, who will direct the performances.

"Zhao said the performances will demonstrate the friendship, magnanimous spirit and kindness of modern Chinese people."

Trying to find words to describe the extreme offensiveness of flying the Communist Chinese flag over the White House challenges my vocabulary. Words such as UNBELIEVABL  Read Full Story

The Government's Effort Has Failed

The Federal Reserve's latest (through July) G19 update is out, showing consumer credit. To say that these figures are ugly would be an understatement. In fact, there is simply no way you can spin this - while this contraction in credit has to happen it has horrifying implications if our Washington policymakers don't get on the stick and deal with the underlying issues here and now instead of pretending that everything is ok or worse, try to "borrow our way to prosperity."Hiring isn't coming back any time soon either: SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Employers' hiring plans for the upcoming fourth quarter dropped to their lowest level in the history of Manpower's Employment Outlook Survey, which started in 1962. That needs no further explanation. President Obama is trying to kick the can again: The Senate must move legislation to raise the federal debt limit beyond $12.1 trillion by mid-October, a move viewed as necessary despite protests abou  Read Full Story

Goldman CEO as Hypocritical, Commie, Oligarch
09-09-2009  •  Economic Policy Journal 
Lloyd Blankfein, chief executive of Goldman Sachs, has attacked some investment banking products as socially useless and said that the controversy over bankers’ pay was both understandable and appropriate, in a speech to the Handelsblatt banking conference in Frankfurt. He did not comment on the "social" usefulness of his new townhouse with its 12 car garage. Blankfein said that multi-year bonuses should be outlawed and senior staff should receive large proportions of pay in stock, rather than cash. Top executives should be forced to hold the bulk of that stock until retirement, he said. He did no comment on the degree to which he and Henry Paulson have already cashed out of stock. He did not mention the self-serving nature of his comments on multi-year bonuses given that Goldman has spurned multi-year bonus guarantees at a time when rivals have been hiring aggressively using such promises. Blankfein also supported the call for global regulatory reform , but did n  Read Full Story
