According to Jack Healy of New York Times:
“Talk about climate change is not an ideological luxury but a reality,” Mr. bin Laden was quoted as saying in a report on Al Jazeera’s English-language Web site.
So Osama bin Laden, Barry Obama, Algore, and UNIPCC are all in clique together after all!

. . . this was really an incredibly graceless, self-righteous, and grouchy performance. It had a lot of what’s bad about Obama’s speeches (he said “I” almost a hundred times, repeatedly referred to his campaign as though it were a great American story we all love, continued to blame Bush for everything under the sun even as he said he was “not interested in re-litigating the past,” and piled clichés sky high) but none of what’s good about his speech . . .and this picture from here:
I really made the right decision and saved my tempers. What a bunch of jokers Americans have to contend with!

Reporting from Baghdad - Vice President Joe Biden promised Saturday that the Obama administration would appeal a U.S. court's decision to drop charges against a group of Blackwater guards involved in a shooting that left at least 14 Iraqi civilians dead.Let me get this straight: the judge rightfully dismissed the charges because they were not instructed to remain silence. Why would Obama administration appeal the decision? Al Qaeda works for Al Qaeda will have full Miranda right according to Obama, but U.S citizens worked for U.S. company were forced to give incriminating statments? Yes, that's the true form of Obama justice!
The September 2007 shootings in a busy Baghdad square enraged Iraqis, and tempers were further inflamed last month when a U.S. federal judge dismissed criminal charges against five of the former guards for the security firm now known as Xe. The judge ruled that the prosecution improperly built the case on incriminating statements the guards were forced to give to the State Department.

OFM is quite fascinating. In most math problems if you subtract from a number, the result is a smaller number. But not with OFM. Using Obama's system, as more people lose their jobs -- hundreds of thousands every month -- the number of jobs created or saved (whatever that means) has actually gone up. It's the new subtraction. But, of course, it doesn't add up.
In December, 85,000 jobs were lost, and the unemployment rate remained at 10 percent. Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) summed up the situation perfectly by saying, "Democrats continue to advance a liberal agenda that is doing more harm than good. The policies of higher taxes, runaway spending, record debt and government takeovers, are having a chilling effect on jobs creators across the country."
The Obama administration was first claiming that 640,000 were created or saved from the economic stimulus plan. "But more errors were found, with tens of thousands of problems documented in corrected counts, from the substantive to the clerical."
So... what does Obama do? He scraps his plan and comes up with a new method for accounting that's even fuzzier. As noted by the AP, "The Obama administration now is making it easier to give the stimulus credit for hiring. It's no longer about counting a job as saved or created; now it's a matter of counting jobs funded by the stimulus."
Is Obama serious? The AP, which is not known for it's unbiased reporting, even notes that "any stimulus money used to cover payroll will be included in the jobs credited to the program, including pay raises for existing employees and pay for people who never were in jeopardy of losing their positions."
So, guess what Obama's new claim is? The 640,000 number is out. The 2 million number is in. Wow! Now that's quite a change. And, yes... with a straight face, White House officials are now saying that the economic stimulus plan has created or saved up to 2 million jobs.
In another AP story on GOPUSA, Obama is all smiles because of a report produced by his own economic council that states "the annual growth rate last year would have been roughly 2 percentage points lower, and there would have been 1.5 million to 2 million fewer jobs" without the stimulus.
Of course, it's impossible to prove what would have, should have, or could have happened if something was not done, but that doesn't stop Obama for taking credit for it.
And now Obama wants another stimulus bill... more money out of all our pockets to fund jobs that HE thinks should be funded. Doesn't it make sense that jobs will be created when American companies are ready to hire? Creating a job through the government when the economy won't support it on its own makes no sense. The only reason that job exists is because the government says it must exist and taxpayers are paying the salary.
Obama's Fuzzy Math is more than just fuzzy. It's a clear attempt to rally public opinion for a set of policies that take power away from the American people, put more power in the hands of government, and drive the country further into massive debt. That kind of math just doesn't add up.
I am reminded of Hans Christian Anderson' "Emperor's New Clothes" except that it's not the crooked weavers this time, it's the crooked leader that American was fooled to elect with 52.7 % of vote that is truly rotten to the core!

As Hillary bungled Caroline, Bill’s handling of Ted was even worse. The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and pressed for an endorsement, making the case for his wife. But Bill then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.

One crucial detail is mostly left out of the Detroit charade story as it is being handled by the mainstream media worldwide: at Amsterdam airport, the “crotch bomber” boarded the US-bound flight without a passport and without going through any security check. Instead, he was escorted by a “well-dressed” gentleman who apparently had access to the boss of the Israeli firm that handles security at Amsterdam.Did you hear that? What do you think of it? What's going on there? Here's Vogel's take:
Curiously, the only answer the US government could think of, seconded by the usual orchestrated choir of its vassal states, was to increase security checks for all passengers, subjecting them to full body scans. Just pause here for a moment. Does this sound logical to you? Of course it does not! If there actually has been an attempt to blow up an airplane and the would-be “crotch bomber” was escorted by another person, the logical thing to do would be to check out security at Amsterdam airport. Not to increase security measures for all passengers. However, the stupidity of the US government may actually be so serious that they actually believe they could tackle the issue by the measures they have taken so far.That's frightening! Right now U.S. Government is a misnomer for Obama 's ruling power. Right now America is under the Obama autocracy. How are we going to go through the next 3 years?

As reported in New York times today by David Barboza (January 8, 2010, on page B1):
This is very interesting. Especially seeing that George Soros's partner totally disagree by insisting that “China is not in a bubble.” Now the game is set. I am solidly on Mr. Chanos's side. Let's just find a ring side seat and wait and see what's going to happen. Let the Commie China economic crash to begin. Should be very very interesting!
As most of the world bets on China to help lift the global economy out of recession, Mr. Chanos is warning that China’s hyperstimulated economy is headed for a crash, rather than the sustained boom that most economists predict. Its surging real estate sector, buoyed by a flood of speculative capital, looks like “Dubai times 1,000 — or worse,” he frets. He even suspects that Beijing is cooking its books, faking, among other things, its eye-popping growth rates of more than 8 percent.
“Bubbles are best identified by credit excesses, not valuation excesses,” he said in a recent appearance on CNBC. “And there’s no bigger credit excess than in China.” He is planning a speech later this month at the University of Oxford to drive home his point.
As America’s pre-eminent short-seller — he bets big money that companies’ strategies will fail — Mr. Chanos’s narrative runs counter to the prevailing wisdom on China. Most economists and governments expect Chinese growth momentum to continue this year, buoyed by what remains of a $586 billion government stimulus program that began last year, meant to lift exports and consumption among Chinese consumers.
