Meanwhile, the administration sought to regain control of the health care debate by asking supporters to forward a chain e-mail to counter criticism that's circulating on the Internet.

Some agencies already track website visitors Half a dozen federal agencies are paying a private company to track and analyze the behavior of visitors to their websites, taking advantage of technologies that could become more common on government sites if a White House proposal is approved. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Defense are among the agencies that already have contracts with ComScore, a Reston, Va.-based firm that analyzes Web traffic, to profile Web audiences.

The cost of earmarks increased this year despite lawmakers' claims they're working to reduce pork-barrel spending. Earmarks, which are inserted in appropriations bills by members in order to fund specific projects, added up to $19.9 billion in 2009, according to an analysis by the Taxpayers for Common Sense and Center for Responsive Politics. Earmarks in 2008 spending bills were worth $18.3 billion. Earmark critics have said that the practice increases pork-barrel spending and takes funds away from national priorities.

The Examiner

Sports writers who never have a harsh word for the local team are called "homers," but one doesn't have to look far in the news sections or broadcasts of the mainstream media to realize that this problem starts on the front page. Take, for example, these three significant stories that got little or no play in The Washington Post, The New York Times or the network news outlets. First, remember that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) "report" warning of the danger of domestic terrorist attacks by right-wing extremists? With only a few exceptions, major mainstream media outlets uncritically repeated the report's assertions, which were allegedly based on credible intelligence from official sources. It was left to a conservative non-profit, Americans for Limited Government (ALG), to file a Freedom of Information Act request for the documentation used by DHS to prepare the report. And guess what ALG found? Instead of intelligence reports, DHS used unverified

Nassim Nicholas Taleb told it straight on CNBC today, saying: "We still have leadership that's literally incompetent" The government doesn't see the problem. They are just applying patches The risks to the economy that were there before are still there. In fact, the risk to the economy is probably worse now than before. Fewer people employed today with same level of debt. We are just converting private debt into government debt Government has a lack of understanding of the disease.

They start out the article with comments about the government’s computer system crashing, not being able to handle the dealer’s information that must be plugged in. Think $700 screwdriver. But what followed was even more amazing. The car dealers must destroy the engines of the cars that come in. One story they relate is of a 1988 BMW with 214,000 miles on it. In the normal BMW life expectancy, that’s about middle aged. But the dealers are forced to actually pour a sodium silicate solution in the engine which hardens into a glass-like substance that seizes upthe engine and it is dead within seconds. What a waste!

The more he speaks on defense of his health Plan, the deeper in the hole he goes. Today he said as far as quality and profitabilty goes, the private sector will be able to successfully compete with the government's health plan. As an example, he cited the competition between FedEx, UPS the U.S. Post Office. He said of the three, the Post office is the one that is always having troubles and is mis-managed.. Isn't the Post office a government run, financed, and managed operation? How does he hope to sway people by giving the post office as an example of how smooth and efficient the government runs things? He could have as well cited the SS Administration or the VA Administration,or the Department of Indian affairs as equally efficient government programs that have gone broke.

President Obama may be using his political action committee funds to stomp out eligibility lawsuits brought by Americans, as he has paid more than $1.35 million to his top lawyer since the election. Obama for America, Obama's 2008 political campaign, merged with the Democratic National Committee in January and is now known as Organizing for America. The grassroots army that some refer to as "Obama 2.0" is still collecting financial contributions. Federal Election Commission records for "Obama for America" show that the lobby organization has paid international law firm Perkins Coie exactly $1,352,378.95 since the 2008 election. FEC records show the following payments made to the law firm from Oct. 16, 2008, to June 30, 2009: More....

1) Despite the mobilization of the anti-obamacare movement in all of the recent townhall meetings, there didn't seem to be ANY TRACE of the movement in this one. 2)The President repeatedly called out the movement by saying he was going to address the "wild misrepresentations" and "scare tactics" employed by special interests that are trying to "scare and mislead the American people". I didn't see anyone stepping up. 3) In reference to #2, the only "tough" question to be asked was by a LITTLE GIRL who referrenced the people OUTSIDE who had anti-obamacare signs. The President was clear in his response that these people were trying to "create boogiemen" and "profit from the status quo". Hmmm. That's so weird!

One further point that came out of the left wing panel discussion here at tht ASA conference in San Francisco was that to a man Steve Kest, executive director of ACORN, George Goehl of the National People's Action Network, Gabe Gonzales of the Center for Community Change and Matt Hammer of the People Acting in Community were not buying into the claims that the protests going on against the healthcare plan were staged or because Obama is black. None of them believe Nancy Pelosi's claim that the protests are orchestrated. None of them buy into Krugman's statement that ..they’re probably reacting less to what Mr. Obama is doing, or even to what they’ve heard about what he’s doing, than to who he is. That is, the driving force behind the town hall mobs is probably the same cultural and racial anxiety that’s behind the “birther” movement, which denies Mr. Obama’s citizenship. Senator Dick Durbin has suggested that the birthers and the health care protesters are one and the sa

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) offered an amendment that would ensure that nothing in the bill could prevent individuals from keeping their current health benefit plan. Based on their own reading of the language of the bill, several [The House Energy and Commerce] Committee members did not believe such a guarantee, as proposed by Rep. Stearns, was necessary. So, they defeated the Stearns amendment... Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) offered an amendment that would put the government in control of setting prices for insurance premiums for seniors’ prescription drug coverage. The amendment would mandate that premiums for insurance plans offered on the National Health Exchange could not exceed 150 percent of the annual percentage increase in medical inflation, essentially placing a government price cap on premiums. In addition, the amendment would allow the Secretary of HHS to “negotiate” the drug prices in Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage plans. In other words, the government, not the mark

Comment (mine) Socializing the Losses Privatizing the Profits! Much to their dismay, Americans learned last year that they “owned” Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Well, meet their cousin, Ginnie Mae or the Government National Mortgage Association, which will soon join them as a trillion-dollar packager of subprime mortgages. Taxpayers own Ginnie too. Only last week, Ginnie announced that it issued a monthly record of $43 billion in mortgage-backed securities in June. Ginnie Mae President Joseph Murin sounded almost giddy as he cheered this “phenomenal growth.” Ginnie Mae’s mortgage exposure is expected to top $1 trillion by the end of next year—or far more than double the dollar amount of 2007. (See the nearby table.) Earlier this summer, Reuters quoted Anthony Medici of the Housing Department’s Inspector General’s office as saying, “Who would have predicted that Ginnie Mae and Fannie Mae would have swapped positions” in loan volume?

The corporate-owned mainstream media would have us believe that Obama’s ascension to power is an “All-American” story attainable by any hard-working “common” American.

Despite losing a Democratic primary run for the U.S. House of Representatives to four-term incumbent Bobby Rush by a margin of two to one http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/fe2000/ilh.htm, Obama served in the Illinois Senate from 1996 to 2004 and was magically selected as a virtual unknown in the stage of national politics to deliver the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston, Massachusetts.

After this nation-wide debut, Obama served as a junior United States Senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and then was simply catapulted to the Presidency.  Is Obama’s ascension to power an “All-American” story attainable by any hard-working “common” American or is Obama’s coronation a result of his “blue

Is Barack Obama the product of a vast socialist conspiracy designed to undermine the fundamental tenets established by our Founding Fathers, all bankrolled and organized by elite financiers? The answer is unequivocally yes.

To deconstruct this labyrinth-like network, one must start at the top with global slash and burn speculator George Soros and his ties to the world’s most powerful banking family. Journalist, historian and economic researcher William Engdahl sets the stage.

“Soros has been identified as a front man for the Rothschild banking group. Understandably, neither he nor the Rothschilds wants this important fact to be public.” He continues, “Soros’s connection to the ultra-secret international finance circles of the Rothschilds is not just an ordinary or accidental banking connection.”

Finally, in a November 1, 1996 article, Engdahl writes, “From the very first days when Soros created his own investment fund in 1969, he ow

Remember all the outrage when the public learned that Citigroup was going to spend money on new corporate jets despite needing billions of taxpayer dollars to remain afloat? Well, we’ve found another group that is wasting taxpayer dollars on unnecessary passenger jets. Despite the recession, higher than expected budgetary outlays and lower revenues, one group propped up by a virtually unlimited amount of taxpayer dollars and whose debt is supported by the explicit guarantee of the full faith and credit of the American people has decided to double the number of passenger jets it is buying. They go by the name of The House of Representatives.
