Happy New Year

Just wanted to do a drive by post. I have been extremely busy with a family issue, so have not had the time to write, or say hay to all of my friends around here. I wish everyone a great New Year’s Day, and I will see ya’all soon.
God Bless

53% of voters are good with this crap, and the rest of us, as always, get screwed!

$150 million for Alaskan fisheries, $2 million to the Smithsonian to repair roofs and $8 million to Homeland Security and the Justice Department to buy cars. And that’s chump change compared to the rest.

The old Klansman, Robert Byrd, who was famous for adding West Virginia pork to senate bills, would be proud: The Democrats’ Hurricane Sandy “emergency relief” bill contains more than $21 billion in spending that has nothing to do with Sandy – let alone the devastated areas of New York or New Jersey. Yep, Harry Reid’s Porkfest 2012 does the late senator proud indeed.

Not only does the bill include hundreds of millions of dollars of new unrelated spending requests, it also contains multiple provisions that had previously been rejected or not yet considered by Congress. Included? A measure that alters how the federal government manages areas prone to…

LIBOR Scandal And Mass Murders In Colorado and Conn

Not a word about this from Fox,CNN,MSNBC ect. The article has been pretty well scrubbed from the internet. I found it re-posted here:

“Libor scandal grows as the fathers of two mass murderes were to testify.”….
Ken Schortgen Jr
In the wake of the mass murders that took place in Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 14, information on the shooter, and his family, is slowly being discovered by law enforcement other sources. One interesting connection to the tragedy that took place at the Sandy Hook school is that the father of Adam Lanza has a connection to the theater shootings that took place in Aurora earlier this year by James Holmes.

Both fathers of the shooters were allegedly expected to testify in the Libor scandal that rocked the banking world in June.

The father of Newtown Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial. The father of Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead scientist for the credit score company FICO. Both men were to testify before the US Sentate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal. The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars. HSBC has already been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a motive and a link. This coincidence is impossible to overlook. Two mass shootings connected to LIBOR.
– Fabain4Liberty via Before it’s News

Libor is the internal banking interest rate that major financial institutions determine each day for lending purposes between each facility. This rate is then translated to the interest rates used for mortgages, student loans, credit cards, and nearly every interest bearing loan in the world. Manipulation of the Libor rate has resulted in hundreds of billions, if not trillions of dollars in fraudulent payments made by billions of customers throughout the financial world.

For similar events on the magnitude of both Aurora and Newtown to hold a connection to one of the greatest financial scandals in the history of finance is astronomically slim in regards to coincidence. In fact, neither shooter had a history with firearm proficiency, and the outcome of each shooting showed an expertise many trained military personnel could not achieve. This leaves the question of where they got their training, or if there was another plot involved which allowed these young men to perform the actions they did with such precision.

While the coming days will bring forth more pertinent information on the motives, access, and failures of both community and family to diagnose the events leading up to Adam Lanza’s killing spree, one thing is becoming disturbingly clear. The connections between the Aurora massacre, and the one that took place in Newtown on Friday, may have far more ramifications to the people involved in the Libor scandal than anyone could imagine.

Flashback: Clinton Requests $60 Million to Put Cops in Schools

“I didn’t do it, you can’t prove it, I wasn’t even there!”

Bill and Hillary Clinton are legendary for their capacity to escape crises. Like the proverbial cockroach that crawls away from a nuclear explosion, Bill and Hill possess an uncanny ability to slither out of responsibility and the normally resultant consequences that is unequaled in modern politics. To paraphrase SNL’s Darrell Hammond (as Bill Clinton): They are bullet-proof.

Bubba had more documented affairs and dalliances than any president in history. Yet? He emerged from the ashes like a phoenix and today sits atop the Democratic totem pole as its number one rock star.

And Hillary? Remember the Rose Law Firm billing records that Hill insisted she had never seen? After nearly two years of searches and subpoenas, the Clinton White House finally announced that it had “unexpectedly” discovered copies (the originals were never…

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” 

I’ve often wondered what Martin Luther King would think today of the nation for which he had such noble dreams. Would he be more proud of an America that elected a black president – or more troubled by the divisive among us – black and white – who cry “racism” whenever that president or his policies are challenged?

Would he be more pleased that Colin Powell became Secretary of State and Condoleezza Rice became National Security Advisor, or more saddened that Tim Scott and Robert Griffin III are summarily disowned by black liberals – simply because the newly-appointed senator from South Carolina and the star quarterback of…
