Beleaguered Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) Nevada tried to sneak an amnesty into an upcoming defense policy bill that he says would help young people in the country illegally become U.S. citizens.
The Nevada Democrat said the legislation known as the DREAM Act is long overdue. But he wouldn’t say whether he has the votes for the amendment. The DREAM Act allows young people who attend college or join the military to become U.S. citizens..
The young people must have come to the country when they were under 16 years of age and have been in the country five years. They have to serve in the military at least two years and complete two years of college.
Democrats have also promised gay rights groups an end to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Policy.” That is in the bill that Reid said he’ll try to take up next week.
Republicans oppose both measures.
Obama has been under fire in the immigrant and Hispanic communities because Congress has failed to move an immigration reform bill despite his promise to address the issue in his first year in the Oval Office.
The Democrats’ end-of-the-year push on immigration reform is a political move. Reid is facing a tough re-election challenge from tea party favorite Sharron Angle, who supports tougher immigration laws. Hispanics make up a quarter of Nevada’s population.
Reid leads Angle by a measly 1.4 percentage points in an average of three recent polls effectively it is a dead heat so, whichever one stumbles loses.
California has six of top ten worst cities for car thefts. Modesto is Number two in the nation of cars stolen. “The Golden State’s other contributions to the list are: Bakersfield (3rd in nation, 684 stolen cars per 100,000 people); Stockton (4th, 663); Fresno (5th, 641); San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont (7th, 610); and Visalia-Porterville (8th, 567).”
California’s government schools rate themselves as doing just fine but by every other national and international measure - they stink. The statewide dropout rate is 40% and it is 60% in Los Angeles.
The final primaries for 2010 were held Tuesday in several states.
Karl Rove says Christine O’Donnell’s victory over longtime Rep. Mike Castle in the Republican Senate primary in Delaware is a “true upset” that toppled one of the state’s “most beloved political figures.”
The former Gorge W. Bush adviser also said tea party favorite O’Donnell has a “checkered background” and won’t be able to win when she faces Democrat Chris Coons in the November 2 general election. But, less than a day later Republicans are rallying to O’Donnell’s side.
November. 2, Election Day, will be one for the history books. Merrill Matthews‘ of the Institute for Policy Innovation in Dallas says in an article titled “The I Can’t Wait to Vote Election” it’s a cleaning up the swamp mentality. A study of primary election voting which ended with last Tuesday’s Primaries finds that 4 million more Republicans voted than Democrats.
Democrats are opining the primary results give them an edge because of the more “radical” agenda of their opponents. Whether you agree or not Tuesday just sets up the real contest on November 2nd.

According to the Assessment of Offshore Wind Energy Resources for the United States, 4,150 gigawatts of potential wind turbine nameplate capacity (maximum turbine capacity) from offshore wind resources are available in the United States.
In 2008 the nation’s total electric generating capacity from all sources was 1,010 gigawatts.
The devil is in the details and that capacity was calculated from the total offshore area within 50 nautical miles of shore, in areas where average estimate is based on annual wind speeds are at least 7 meters per second (approximately 16 miles per hour) at a height of 90 meters (295 feet).
For purposes of this study, it was assumed that 5 megawatts of wind turbines could be placed in every square kilometer of water that met these wind characteristics.
That area includes all around the Hawiian islands, Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River but nothing off the coast of Floida. It does not say how much that would cost; how long it would take to build such amassive network or what the cost of that electricity would be.
Critics say electricity cost would likely quafdruple and if thre were a crash rogram it would take 50-years and much of the technology does not yet exist.
Despite a scathing TV ad by GOP gubernatorial front runner Meg Whitman’s campaign featuring Bill Clinton calling Jerry Brown a liar the former President says he’s endorsed the Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown just two days after Brown mocked him during a campaign appearance. Brown apologized for that statement yesterday. I’d feature Clinton’s endorsement showing him with a clothespin on his nose but, Brown ’s TV spot features Meg with her nose growing every time she “lies.”
It has never happened before.
Reflecting the demographic change in America and the immigration policies that ushered it in, Univision took the coveted position of most popular television network in the 18 to 49 demographic last week.
It is a striking indicator in the United States, which has been an English-speaking culture since its inception.
The 18-to-49 demographic is the group that advertisers love to target, and consequently it’s the one that’s most on the minds of entertainment executives.
Admittedly, Univision’s jump in rank occurred before the start of the fall season, the period during which networks put forward their best programming.
Like other TV networks, Univision has been working to attract young people, and it has succeeded to a great degree. According to Nielsen, 2.1 million of the network’s primetime average audience of 3.8 million was in the 18-to-49 range.
The programs that provide the lion’s share of the ratings are the Spanish prime-time soap operas called telenovelas, which air five times a week.
Incidentally, a consortium led by Saban Capital Group acquired Univision in 2007. Hollywood mogul Haim Saban is a longtime financial supporter of Democrat candidates.

One of the four City Council members targeted for recall in the scandal-plagued Southern California city of Bell says he supports the effort but won’t resign - at least not for now.
Councilman Luis Artiga said Tuesday he won’t give up his office unless the other three do. If he leaves office now, Artiga says, the others could simply appoint his successor.
So Artiga says he plans to work with those supporting the recall and will sign a petition himself.
Artiga, who joined the council only two years ago, says he never voted in favor of the huge salaries council members paid themselves and others. But he says he let the city down by not paying closer attention.
The salary issue triggered the recall.
According to a new report, 41 of President Obama’s staffers now owe the government more than $831,000 in back taxes. When asked if they could just keep avoiding taxes, they said, “Yes we can! Yes we can!” — Leno
A $60 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia represents the largest single U.S. arms sale ever. It allows the kingdom to be the most militarily advanced of the Arab Gulf states and one of the richest countries in the world, to buy top-line U.S.-made helicopters and fighter jets with ranges that would span the Middle East and beyond.
Unlike some previous sales to Saudi Arabia, this one is not expected to be derailed by opposition in Congress or from U.S. backers of Israel, who have worried in the past about blunting Israel’s military edge over its Arab neighbors.
Distaff (DIS-taf) adjective: of or relating to women.noun:1. A staff for holding flax, wool, etc. for spinning.2. Women considered collectively.3. A woman’s work or domain. Etymology: From Old English dis- (bunch of flax) + staef (stick).
Only a week after Cuba’s toothless tyrant Fidel Castro confessed communism failed in Cuba comes this dramatic news– the Cuban labour federation says more than a million workers would lose their jobs - half of them by March next year.
Those laid off will be encouraged to become self-employed or join new private enterprises, on which some of the current restrictions will be eased. It is biggest shift to the private sector since the revolution in 1959 when the private sector was collapsed and communism was substituted.
Cuba’s communist government currently controls almost all aspects of the country’s economy and employs about 85% of the workforce.
“Our state cannot and should not continue maintaining companies, productive entities, services and budgeted sectors with bloated payrolls and losses that hurt the economy,” the labour federation said in a statement.
“Job options will be increased and broadened with new forms of non-state employment, among them leasing land, co-operatives, and self-employment, absorbing hundreds of thousands of workers in the coming years.”
The bottom-line is that despite a tenacious portion of the American left enthusiastic about the communist theory Castro-model communism ends up on history’s scrap-heap along with the Leninist and Stalinist model, the Cambodian models, the Maoist model, the North Korean model, numerous Eastern European models, with scores of erstwhile Intellectuals and a crowd of apostate communists, from Whitaker Chambers to Arthur Koestler to Mikhail Gorbachev.
Outside groups supporting Republican candidates in House and Senate races across the country have been swamping their Democratic-leaning counterparts on television since early August as the midterm election season has begun heating up.
The yawning gap in independent interest group spending is alarming some Democratic officials, who argue that it amounts to an effort on the part of super-wealthy Republican donors, as well as corporate interests, newly emboldened by regulatory changes, to buy the election. Poor babies.
It is no longer if but when Iran’s push for a nuclear weapon and advanced ballistic missiles will come to fruition. U. S. VP Joe Biden signaled the Obama’s acceptance a year ago when he said get used to a nuclear armed Iran.
Not a single expert in the field, whether American, international or Israeli, disagrees with the common finding that the sanctions imposed by the UN, Europe and the US, have not slowed down Iran’s race for a nuclear weapon.
Since last November, its stockpile has grown from 1,800 kilograms to 2,800 kilograms — an increase of more than 50 percent. Tehran now has enough low-enriched uranium to produce two nuclear weapons with further enrichment. Already, it has enriched 22 kilograms to the level of 20 percent, which is considerably closer to the 60 percent threshold for weapon.
The WP editorial said “…the Obama administration needs to begin to seriously contemplate what it will do on the Day After.
Multiple informed sources find three reasons to have sparked this flurry of worrisome findings about Iran’s nuclear activities:
- 1. To prepare the public for another round, the fifth, of harsh sanctions which Tehran has already warned would be treated as justifying military retaliation in the Persian Gulf and Middle East. Tehran, aware of the unforgiving opinion building up in the West, made the gesture Friday, Sept. 10, of inviting reporters to witness the release of Sarah Shourd, one of the three American hikers seized last year in the Iraqi-Iranian border area and charged as spies. (The release was cancelled later that night due to “unresolved legal issues.”)
- 2. To prepare the climate in the US for a possible Iranian nuclear test within months. Administration officials wrongly estimate that it would still take Iran a year to produce a weapon, a view Israel subscribes to. They also assert that such an attempt would likely be detected by UN inspectors. However, in June, Iran barred access to two experienced inspectors, part of a systematic effort to blind the IAEA to its activities.
- 3. The Jewish New Year was deemed a good time for the bad news about Iran to emerge because its alarming content for Israel in particular would reach American Jews and Israel more slowly and with reduced impact. The Netanyahu government could then continue to keep the Israeli public deluded about the closeness of the Iranian nuclear threat for a while longer.
A nuclear Iran will have horrific consequences. The U. S. has had and likely has it in its hands to at the least set that back but hardly anyone believes the Obama administration has the will to exert it.
Tens of millions of innocents could perish.

Not long ago Obama merchandise was flying off the shelves at souvenir and trinket shops and stalls nationwide. But, as people’s disappointment has increased sales have collapsed.
Some say T-shirt polling is an most important indicator of how far and how fast Obama’s brand has sunk, and could be a harbinger of very hard times for Democrats in November.
Perhaps the most famous was the shop in New York City’s Union Station, the souvenir shop that once proudly dubbed itself the Obama Store because of its mostly Obama-related selection - has failed and closed down.
Even on the notoriously sympathetic Sunday morning “Meet the Press” Obama’s chief sycophant David Axelrod was hard pressed to even bunt the usual slow pitches to get on base. Axelrod is said to have already staked out his lifeboat on the S. S. Obama as it hurtles toward November’s political iceberg.
Axelrod is reportedly ready to leave Washington but to also be tagged to head Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign - the money will be right.
Democrats appear to have forgotten that Fritz Mondale got beaten into his shoes in 1984 by proposing tax hikes and that everyone who has ever tried that has been beaten into a bloody political pulp.
Taiwan will field its first homegrown cruise missiles by the end of this year. Taipei has begun mass production of the Hsiung-feng 2E (Brave Wind 2) cruise missiles after acquiring “key components” needed for the missiles, and will start deploying them this year, lawmaker Lin Yu-Fang told AFP.
According to Jane’s Defense Weekly, Taiwan plans up to 500 missiles, each with a range of over 600 kilometers (372 miles), enough to threaten major Chinese cities.
The missiles could ultimately have a range of up to 1,000 (621 miles) kilometers. Taiwan is not known to have nuclear warheads — China does. It is about 1,000 miles between Taipei and Beijing. Taiwan plans 500 of the missiles. China has some 3,000 warheads aimed at Taiwan.
China has deployed thousands of cruise missiles as part of its military buildup. The Pentagon’s latest annual report on the Chinese military said China’s missile forces, including both cruise and ballistic missiles, is one of the largest in the world.
“The PLA is acquiring large numbers of highly accurate cruise missiles, such as the domestically-produced ground-launched DH-10 land-attack cruise missile (LACM); the domestically produced ground- and ship-launched YJ-62 anti-ship cruise missile (ASCM), which is outfitted on the domestically produced Luyang II-class guided-missile destroyer (DDGs); the Russian SS-N-22/Sunburn supersonic ASCM, which is outfitted on China’s Sovremenny-class [destroyers] acquired from Russia; and, the Russian SS-N- 27B/Sizzler supersonic ASCM, which is outfitted on China’s Russian-built, KILO-class diesel electric submarines,” the report said.
Taiwan is buying two U. S. made Perry-class frigates; a number of M1A1 Abrams tanks, and technology for its F-16 fighter fleet. It already deploys 20 missile firing boats armed with surface to surface missile with 90 mile range to patrol the Formosa Straits between it and mainland China. It is reportedly deploying stealth technology on updated vessels.
Despite recent thawing in relations between Taipei and Beijing neither side appear willing to reduce military spending.

In 2009 the U.S. Export-Import Bank, one of those quasi independent federal agencies, loaned with Congressional approval more than $1 billion to the Mexico’s state oil company to fund Pemex’s drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Export-Import Bank has another $1 billion in loans on tap for Pemex in 2010. They are currently awaiting congressional approval creating a DEPENDS moment especially for Democrats who OKd the 2009 loans.
While U. S. based oil companies and workers are suffering because of Obama’s ban on offshore drilling the Mexican projects are not affected. Pemex’s ventures are shallow-water projects that Obama has embargoed in addition to deep water projects like the ill-fated BP well.
There are question about whether Mexico is fulfilling its promise to buy U. S. technology and contract with U. S. companies. Mexico is the United States’ second largest source of foreign oil, after Canada, shipping 1.2 million barrels per day.
So in effect, the federal government is lending money to the Mexican government to produce oil so that Americans can pay to import it while American companies are locked out.
President Obama will be laying out a new economic plan. Apparently, we had an old economic plan — Leno
A former staff member of the congressional commission on China headed by Rep. Christopher Cox (R) CA. said the Pentagon’s latest report does not fully catalogue the Chinese military’s buildup and the danger it poses to U. S. national security.
In an obvious reference to Obama’s talkathon tactics of his Rodney King foreign policy the report snidely points out “China’s growl will only get louder and no amount of ‘hope’ is going to change them.”
The report was delayed for five months when “In fact, it would have been more usefully issued early in the year to blunt the initial Chinese reactions to the US arms sales to Taiwan,”it says..
One key disclosure is the statement that China may be building a new road-mobile ICBM with multiple warheads greatly increasing nucvlear warheads it h as aimed at the U. S.
Last week the Soviet defector Lev Navrozov now at the Center for the Survival of Western Democracies said that by every significant sign China is preparing for world War that it now think it can win as Obam’s foreign policies handicap it and its erstwhile allies.
In related news is Japanese growing alarm. Japan’s major business and industry lobbying organization, Nippon Keidanren, last week announced that Tokyo’s arms export ban and its declining defense spending are a national security risk as dozens of corporations exit the defense industry.
Japan will be left behind as a “closed nation” in military technology as a result of the arms export ban preventing companies from joining international weapons development projects, such as the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
Japan’s defense ministry agreed: “We’re considering this issue very seriously.”
Major defense contractors and employers like: Lockheed Martin, ITT Defense and Information Systems, Northrop Grumman are bracing for cuts as Obama contracts the America military. Obama has put an end to several big-ticket military programs, and those cuts not only threaten America’s but its remaining allies security but could also delay economic recovery by years.
At the other extreme is China that is developing a blue water Navy and already cowing the U. S. to forsake Taiwan it seems poised to start bigger bites similar to declaring the South China Sea its personal lake while shrugging off complaints as flaccid gum flapping.
Its alliances with Iran and support of and advances into Africa could leave the U. S. and Australia alone in that half of the world if Japan and Taiwan are neutralized. Navrozov and others see that as a possibility and China as trending that way as Hitler and Stalin did in the 1930s.
When US Middle East envoy George Mitchell took to the podium to brief the press during the first day of direct Palestinian-Israeli negotiations on Thursday the Jerusalem Post characterized the New U.

Policy as “speak softly and carry and big check.” Aaron David Miller, a former US Middle East peace negotiator and author of The Much Too Promised Land, referred to the current approach as “a variant of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’”
Hizbullah in Lebanon has over 40,000 rockets,” the Israeli military says. “If a war was to break out now, Hizbullah would be able to shoot 500 to 600 rockets into Israel on a daily basis.” It has stored missiles, rockets, anti-tank weapons and improvised explosive devices in homes, hospitals, mosques and schools. Most of those arms have been supplied by Iran with the consent of Turkey and Russia.
Under a United Nations Security Council resolution, Hizbullah cannot deploy weapons or fighters south of the Litani River. Which is absurd as U. N. forces become even less potent hunkering down as arms and fighters flood into the country.
Israel continues to be dismayed by Obama’s continued support for an impotent Lebanese army that is infested with Hizbullah infiltrators.
This summer went by faster than Lindsay Lohan’s rehab.– Letterman
Under direct threat from al Qaeda threat tom iovethrow Saudi Arabia kingdom, that Sauds did the Arabian thing increasing the salaries of its military.
In August, Al Qaida released a 15-minute audio that called on Saudi soldiers and police to defect and join the Islamic insurgency. Said Al Shihri, regarded as the commander of Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, said the defection of Saudi soldiers would lead to a rapid overthrow of the royal family.
The Saudi military was said to comprise about 100,000 soldiers, many of them from such allies as Egypt and Pakistan. Over the last five years, the military, in cooperation with the United States and other NATO members, has sought to enhance training in both combat and technical skills.
The salary increase was announced during an escalation of tension with neighboring Iran. Riyad has been negotiating a $60 billion weapons package with the United States that included as many as 84 F-15E fighter-jets and 132 combat helicopters.
A German dairy farmer has come up with a novel way to drum up new business — he opened a “Milchtankstelle” milk filling station. near Cologne in the town of Neunkirchen-Seelscheid dispenses the output of 78 cows from a stainless steel vending machine. Customers can either bring their own empty containers or buy milk bottles to fill up. It’s a big hit.
Iraqi security sources said the Al Qaida campaign against Iraq’s military and security forces reflects the policy of its new leadership. They said Abu Al Walid Al Mashhadani has consolidated power and sought to prove his leadership since his appointment in mid-2010.
“The only way he can show that he is boss is through terrorism,” a security source said. “If he fails at that, he is of no use.”
The sources identified Al Mashhadani as the first genuine Iraqi chief of AQI. They said his predecessors, even if they were Iraqi, were largely figureheads subservient to foreign commanders of Al Qaida.
“Al Mashhadani was able to move quickly into his job because he knows Iraq well and has long been involved in operations,” the source said. “He didn’t have to learn anything new.”
In mid-2010, Al Mashhadani took over the posts of the head of AQI and the chief of the Islamic State of Iraq. The appointment took place in wake of the assassination of AQI chief Abu Ayoub Al Masri and ISI head Abu Omar Al Baghdadi in April.
The sources acknowledge that an Aug. 25 offensive against Iraq’s military and security forces was unprecedented for Al Qaida. They cited coordinated attacks on at least 25 targets, in which about 70 people, most of them military and security personnel, were killed.
“This attack was much more ambitious than previous terrorist chiefs would have attempted,” the source said. “It is probably a testament to the knowledge and skills of the new commander.”
The sources said AQI has also been increasing its presence in southern Iraq in preparation for another insurgency campaign. They said the network plans to target crude oil facilities around Basra in an attempt to block Iraq’s energy exports. Iraq has been producing 2.5 million barrels of oil per day.
“We have received information of a plan to target oil facilities,” Ali Al Maliki, head of security in the Basra province, said.
AQI has been emboldened by Obama’s withdrawal of U. S. combat troops and it is seizing on that oppourtunity to attack.
A 54 year-old Paris man of African origin who registered 55 children by 55 different mothers faces up to 10 years in jail and fines for suspected paternity fraud and for helping to obtain residency under false pretences, police said on Friday. In an Inspector Clouseau moment French police say the tip off was the 50- people claiming residency in his 2-room apartment. French taxpayers may have been defrauded of as much as $1.27 million Euros ($1.6 million dollars) in the scam.
Lt. Governor Abel Maldonado went to Bell to announce tax payers back millions the City had cheated them out of, and then AG Gubenitorial candidates Jerry Brown flew in to say he will prosecute offenses. A new report says property owners in the City of Bell overpaid hundreds of thousands of dollars in sewer fees.
This is just the latest grievance for Bell residents, who are already furious about the inflated salaries of city officials and high property taxes — the second highest in all of L.A. County.
State auditors have discovered that taxpayers in Bell were overcharged $621,737 in sewer assessment fees in the past three years.
The sewer fee rate hike did not have voter approval and was higher than the maximum allowed. Some people were paying 2½ times the allowable maximum rate.
Investigators are looking at whether Bell officials violated the civil rights of Latino residents by aggressively towing cars and charging residents exorbitant fees to get their vehicles back.
Federal officials are also looking into complaints about other ways the city tried to boost revenues, including through overly-aggressive code enforcement, the Times reported.
The Times reported earlier this week that some Bell police officers said top brass gave them what amounted to a daily quota to find cars to tow, with some saying that their jobs were at risk if they didn’t meet that quota.
Bell charges $300 for unlicensed motorists to retrieve their cars, triple what Los Angeles County and neighboring cities charge.
The federal probe comes as both the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the California Attorney General are investigating high salaries for Bell officials as well as allegations of voter fraud and questionable financial transactions.
This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”… “The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.” The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”-Thanks to Richard R. for referring it.
It turn out Terry Jones, 58, the Gainesville minister who proposed and then cancelled burning the Quran on last weekend’s 9-11 anniversary, has been connected to the church since the 1980s, he returned full time last year after he reportedly was kicked out of a charismatic evangelical church that he led for almost three decades in Cologne, Germany. He was sent to Germany by Dove founder Donald Northrup, and founded the Christian Community Cologne, according to the Gainesville Sun.
As a new church with “challenging teaching and modern music,” it appealed to young people, so much that by the mid-1990s, the number of churchgoers grew to nearly 1,000, according to a Christian magazine in Germany that interviewed several former members. By then, they said, Jones was no longer spreading the Gospel so much as “creating his own empire.”
The German magazine Der Spiegel quoted former members of Jones’s congregation describing him as a “hate-monger” who demanded obedience.
While Jones appeared outside the Gainesville church twice during the day Friday, he was not reachable for comment about why he left Germany. His son Luke, said he left because he thought it was time to leave.
Liberals quickly linked Jones to his high school classmate Rush Limbaugh butto what constructive end is unclear except for such weisenheiming.
