The new CEO of AIG is going to be paid $7 million per year plus incentives. Clusterstock.com justifies this by saying: "At some point if we're not going to quickly break up AIG, we're going to have to pay someone to run it." AIG should be liquidated, not enabled This is a complete cop-out. AIG should have been thrown into chapter 7 liquidation, but it was not in order to accommodate the monetization of AIG's derivatives counter-parties, led by Goldman Sachs. THAT WE ARE AWARE OF, close to $100 billion dollars has been shuffled from the U.S. Treasury, THRU AIG, and into the coffers of the investment banks who stood to lose $10's of billions from an AIG bankruptcy. So instead of saying "hey man, we need to pay someone really well with Taxpayer money to oversee the transfer of wealth from the Government to Goldman Sachs," we should be asking ourselves why AIG hasn't already been liquidated. AIG will ultimately cost the Taxpayers $100's
Why did President Obama choose a communist-Van Jones to be his "Green Jobs Czar"? Why did Obama risk controversy by appointing a well known street radical to a senior position in the White House? Check out all "The Obama Files"
When Obama was elected, many compared him to a modern day FDR. See this Time Magazine cover, for example. On the other hand, financial writer Ed Harrison has called Obama a "black Herbert Hoover". Who is right? It is true that Hoover - like Obama - did not force any meaningful change or reform to the banking or financial system. See this, this and this. It is true that Hoover - like Obama -appointed as his top economic advisers banking insiders. It is true that Hoover - like Obama - is trying to paper over the crash with happy talk. But - unlike Hoover - Team Obama has printed tens of trillions of dollars and - instead of giving the money to consumers or the real economy - is throwing the money at the biggest banks. And - unlike Hoover - Team Obama is massively manipulating the markets in so many ways that it is impossible to keep track.Entered By:
If President Obama were indeed born in Hawaii, was it while the islands were a territory of the United States? A new wrinkle in the dispute over his birth – and whether he is eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution's requirement that the president be a "natural born" citizen – appeared today when Obama's official MySpace page declared his age is 52, thus placing his birth year at 1957 instead of 1961 as has been claimed.
Kristen Atkinson, a blogger over at the Townhall website, has posted an article claiming Marian Robinson, the 72-year old first grandmother who lives at the White House, is practicing Santería, otherwise known as voodoo.

Obama's scheme to destroy public education in America
No documented record of whereabouts,activity leading up to baby's birth in '61 Much was happening in the first six months of 1961. But an extensive WND investigation into events leading up to the birth of Barack Obama, who would become America's first black president 47 years later, leaves many unanswered questions about the whereabouts and activities of the woman he claims as his mother. The timeline for Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, reveals an approximately six-and-a-half month interval in which there is no documentation for her whereabouts, from Jan. 31, 1961, when she concluded the fall term at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, until Aug. 19, 1961, when the University of Washington at Seattle documents she was enrolled for extension courses.
Eighteen federal and about a dozen state officials spent nearly three hours today touring Standish Maximum Correctional Facility to determine if it could be used to house detainees from Guantanamo Bay.
WASHINGTON – Bowing to Republican pressure and an uneasy public, President Barack Obama's administration signaled Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run insurance as part of a new health care system.
Obama seeks to track visits to .gov websites Planned lifting of ban on 'cookies' called '1984'-style spying effort The Barack Obama administration has announced plans to lift a government ban on tracking visitors to government websites, and potentially, collect their personal data through the use of "cookies" – an effort some suspect may already be in place on White House sites. A ban on such tracking by the federal government on Internet users has been in place since 2000, however, the White House Office of Management and Budget now wants to lift the ban citing a "compelling need." In fact, according to the Electronic Privacy and Information Center, federal agencies have already negotiated agreements and contracts with social networking sites like Google, YouTube, SlideShare, Facebook, AddThis, Blist, Flickr and VIMEO to collect information on visitors for federal web sites. All of these private companies are known to have agreements with fe

A March 2009 policy brief by the United Nations Population Division reveals that the long-term plan for worldwide population reduction is not going fast enough, not by a long shot. Under the desperate headline What would it take to accelerate fertility decline in the least developed countries? the policy brief gives an overview of the progress made by developing countries in regards to the globalists set goal of reducing population and proposes several ways of speeding up the death. Richly draped with graphic illustrations on the state of global population and the progress made by the UN to bring back fertility to acceptable levels, the policy brief advises an increased effort on the part of governments to commit to a strict family planning- policy and other measures designed to bring a halt to life.
Comment mine..Liberals are the biggest hypocrites and FASCISTS around. Remember when Shrill Hill said dissent was patriotic? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJxmpTMGhU0 It's a curious phenomenon. Every once in a while, maybe every six months or so, some event in the media reminds Whole Foods (WFMI) shoppers that the company's (in)famous CEO John Mackey most likely doesn't share their political beliefs. Mackey is an anti-union libertarian. Most of his shoppers aren't. And so it is that his recent op-ed slamming Obamacare has got some predictable blowback from customers, who, generally speaking, are sympathetic to the President and schemes that move us closer to universal care.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced a new “Chief Diversity Officer,” communications attorney Mark Lloyd.
But Doctor of Jurisprudence Lloyd is far more than merely a communications attorney. He was at one time a Senior Fellow at the uber-liberal Center for American Progress (CAP), for whom he co-wrote a June 2007 report entitled “The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio.”
Which rails against the fact that the American people overwhelmingly prefer to listen to conservative (and Christian) talk radio rather than the liberal alternative, and suggests ways the federal government can remedy this free-market created “problem.”
* Restore local and national caps on the ownership of commercial radio stations.
* Ensure greater local accountability over radio licensing.
* Require commercial owners who fail to abide by enforceable public interest obligations to pay a fee to support public broadcasting.
Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America -
A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.
The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.
It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.
GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

The Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity is joining allied Tea Party organizations this coming Monday, August 17th, at 7 am, for a protest in downtown Phoenix at the corner of Adams and 2nd Street, outside the Phoenix Convention Center.
President Barack Obama will address the Veterans of Foreign Wars at the Phoenix Convention Center that morning. We need to assemble peacefully outside the Convention Center and protest Obama, Congress, and the big insurance and drug companies who are supporting the Obama-Pelosi plan. We need to send them the following message:
HANDS OFF OUR HEALTH CARE!
Daschle says health-care reform "will not be pain free." Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them. H.R. 1 (more commonly known as the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, even more commonly known as the Stimulus Bill and aptly dubbed the Porkulus Bill) contains a whopping $1.1 billion to fund the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research. The Council is the brain child of former Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Tom Daschle. Before the Porkulus Bill passed, Betsy McCaughey, former Lieutenant governor of New York, wrote in detail about the Council's purpose.
Quote of the Month! "by spinning the financial news, the appearance of recovery is created, and this lures people back into the stock and real estate markets where they can lose the remainder of their wealth." -Paul Craig Roberts- Mr. Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration. He is coauthor of The Tyranny of Good Intentions. Much like BO was spun by the mainstream communist news networks to be the "One" the "Hope" the "Change" the only change we see is change for the worse as Americans lose any glimmer of hope and are either being let go or reduced to part time employment the most in 15 years! To add insult to injury BO has gone from promised "transparency" to hiding the TRUTH of the financial bail outs he helped LOOT from Americans by voting for the bill. Had the mainstream communist news networks vetted this FRAUD in the first place or the people who tried to warn even on the dummies undergroun
Shocking video shows Obama being interviewed by Chris berman of ESPN....
This Patriotic American had the audacity to call Obamadeathcare what it is Socialism... It needed to be said, so I said it. In an interview I did yesterday on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 show, I said that Barack Obama's policies are leading us to socialism, and we must stand up and take action to fight back! I was invited on the CNN program to talk about our upcoming "Tea Party Express" tour which is shaping up to be a hugely important national effort. You can see the video of my appearance below. Here was the quote that's generated so much attention, and just so you know, I proudly stand behind my comments 100% The question is now will he be off to the Gulag after all Liberal Fascists have deemed using the word "Socialist" is the same as the "N" word. From the mainstream Communist Nightly News.. LOL I like this take on the subject! Video...
"Goldman Sachs, Obama's top corporate source of campaign funds, has been a lead lobbyist for carbon caps. Can Democrats really freeze them out of the promised profits of carbon trading?" Carney asks. Tim doubts it. He expects Senator Charles Schumer and Congressman Charlie Rangel to come to Wall Street's rescue. "Also expect a bump in Dems' Wall Street fundraising in coming weeks," he writes.
Back in July, a software company named Smartronix landed an $18 million contract to build a Web site where taxpayers could easily track billions in federal stimulus money. It was just another part of the Obama administration’s ongoing effort to bring transparency to stimulus spending, we were told. But it seems the drive for transparency doesn’t cover the contract itself.
The Obama administration is pressing ahead with its broad overhaul of financial regulation by proposing to hike the fees big financial firms pay for federal oversight while easing the burden for smaller ones, officials said.
The new two-tiered, pay-for-regulation approach is intended to partly cover the costs of more vigorous bank regulation and a new consumer financial protection agency. It reflects the administration's view that large banks and lenders should pay more because they are more complex and expensive to regulate, a Treasury Department official said.
A man suspected of making threats against the White House was pulled from his car after an hours-long standoff in the parking lot of the Federal Building in West Los Angeles.
The man had refused to leave his red Volkswagen Beetle and withstood four rounds of chemical agents tossed inside the car after police broke a rear window. About an hour later, officers shot out the drivers window with a bean bag gun, used a Taser on the man and pulled him out.
