Did Cash for Clunkers Help Auto Sales?

The busy folks at the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) released a quartet of studies today, covering the economic impacts of:

»The stimulus act.
»The state assistance in the
stimulus act.
»Stimulus efforts in other countries.
»The Cash-for-Clunkers program.

People trade in clunkers and buy new cars all the time. CEA estimates that about 200,000 such new car sales would have happened in July and August without the program.

Rep. Wilson is Right – Government Will Provide Obamacare to Illegals

Last night, in the middle of Obama’s corporate media prime-time address on health care, South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson accused Obama of lying about illegals and health care. Wilson made his accusation after Obama pointed at the Republican side of the aisle and criticized them for opposing the government plan during his speech to a joint session of Congress

Bloodsuckers in Blue

Do you cling to the cherished belief that the Constitution protects the integrity of your person, and shields you from being forced to incriminate yourself? You silly prole — the state has jurisdiction over the very blood in your veins, and can force you to undergo a blood test administered any time a uniformed tax feeder demands it of you.

This may involve being strapped to a “phlebotomy chair” in the local police station and being jabbed by a fumble-fingered donut-burner who is not a competent health care professional under Hippocratic discipline.

The Washington State Supreme Court has ruled that “police can force a blood-alcohol test if suspected drunken drivers refuse to take one,” reports Spokane NBC affiliate KHQ.

Kids Being Grabbed Out Of Refugee Camps

It was first written off as a sex ring, but that didn't make any sense. Who is going to pay $2,000 to have sex with a 12 year-old black boy, when you have hundreds of 10 year-old white Ukrainian girls all over Tel Aviv. But someone is paying $3,000 a kid wholesale, and the reason is black market organs.

It's just economics in organ trading. You bring in a 12 year-old into Tel Aviv, and you don't just grab one $5,000 kidney, and then spend $200,000 raising the kid through college. That kid hits the operating table and he has kidneys, liver, cornea, heart, lung, marrow, etc., and everything is removed. That kid is murdered for his organs. It happens in Israel because of the security needed to cover the operation.

What Role Did the U.S.-Israeli Relationship Play in 9-11?

On the day of the 9-11 attacks, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked what the attack would mean for US-Israeli relations. His quick reply was: “It’s very good….Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel).”

Intelligence wars rely on mathematical models to anticipate the response of “the mark” to staged provocations. Reactions thereby become foreseeable—within an acceptable range of probabilities. When Israeli mathematician Robert J. Aumann received the 2005 Nobel Prize in economic science, he conceded that “the entire school of thought that we have developed here in Israel” has turned “Israel into the leading authority in this field.”

Day of infamy indeed.

It could easily be argued that more strange, terrible and even impossible things happened on, before and because of September 11, 2001 than any other day in the history of the planet. In fact, if all the strange, terrible and impossible occurrences connected with this date were listed and analyzed in detail, it would easily take more than a dozen 9/11 Commission Reports to contain it all.

Who knew?

Before the fateful World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks on September 11, 2001, most people in the United States and the world beyond were not aware of September the 11th as a significant date in United States history. But, like the persistent widow, the date just keeps popping up... over and over and over again. And again. And again. Oh and, look, there it is again. And ---too weird to be coincidence----the date even managed to turn up in popular entertainment before the 2001 attacks.

Food Aid Grows in California's Agricultural Heart

Food Aid Grows in California's Agricultural Heart
SEPTEMBER 2, 2009 By JIM CARLTON
SELMA, Calif. -- The combined punch of drought, water restrictions and recession has created an ironic situation in California's Central Valley: Officials are handing out tons of food in the heart of one of the nation's most productive agricultural regions.
"We either have money for gas and medicine, or food -- not both," Helen Hernandez,
"There's never been this kind of need in the Central Valley, ever," said Dana Wilkie, chief executive of the Fresno food bank. "In some communities, we're serving 80% of the residents."

New software causes iPhones to freeze and stop working, say users

iPhone users have complained that new software released by Apple has caused their handsets to crash and go dead.

The iPhone 3.1 software update has made some of the devices freeze and get stuck in a restore status.

The breakdown means the phones are wiped of contacts, music, photos and videos and cannot be used for making calls.

Russia will support Iran, Israel wants war

Russia hints it will support Iran, not oil embargo
By Steven Edwards,September 10, 2009
UNITED NATIONS — Russia on Thursday threw a wrench into U.S. President Barack Obama's plans to corner Iran over its nuclear program, ruling out new sanctions against the Islamic republic.
The new standoff comes as U.S. intelligence findings say Iran is now ready to take the final leap toward developing a nuclear bomb, according to a U.S. presentation to the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog organization. It also complicates U.S. efforts to convince Israel, which Iran speaks of as an enemy, to hold off on any military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities by giving diplomacy more time to work.

The Pentagon Renovations Completed on 9/11/2001

American Airlines Flight 77 struck the portion of the building that had already been renovated. It was the only area of the Pentagon with a sprinkler system, and it had been reconstructed with a web of steel columns and bars to withstand bomb blasts. The steel reinforcement, bolted together to form a continuous structure through all of the Pentagon's five floors, kept that section of the building from collapsing for 30 minutes--enough time for hundreds of people to crawl out to safety.

The area struck by the plane also had blast-resistant windows--2 inches thick and 2,500 pounds each--that stayed intact during the crash and fire. It had fire doors that opened automatically and newly built exits that allowed people to get out.

War Games: The Key to a 9/11 USAF Stand Down

There was a young man who came in and said to the vice president "The plane [Flight 77] is 50 miles out" [from Washington], "The plane is 30 miles out", and when it got down to "The plane is 10 miles out" the young man also said to the vice president "Do the orders still stand?", and the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said "Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary?"

It is obvious the above orders did not involve defending Washington.

JINSA, Jews demand Obama take action on Iran

09/08/2009
Preparing For ‘Plan C’ On Iran
Beneath the surface, this week’s action is “designed to impress upon people in Washington that somebody has to deal with the problem — and that all the moves up until this point have clearly not addressed the problem in a satisfactory way,” said Shoshana Bryen, senior director for security policy at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). “The Jews aren’t coming here to ask the administration to bomb Iran, but I also don’t think they’re coming here specifically asking for sanctions, either, because we know sanctions haven’t worked. What we’re left with is that they’re preparing the ground so that no matter what happens, nobody can say they weren’t warned.”

Flashback: The Oklahoma City Bombing

"...here's now what we are starting to learn about the succession, or what someone obviously hoped would be a succession of explosions. The first bomb that was in the federal building did go off ... the second explosive was found and defused. The third explosive that was found and they are working on it right now ... both the second and third explosives, if you can imagine this, were larger than the first. ... It is just incredible to think that there was that much heavy artillery that was somehow moved into the downtown Oklahoma City federal building."

"...this is the work of a sophisticated group, this is a very sophisticated device, and it has to have been done by an explosives expert."

The Fires in the WTC Wreckage Were Not Conventional Fires

Conventional fires burning under tons of rubble would be oxygen starved, therefore the smoke produced would be black, not white. Also, large amounts of soot would have been produced in five days, therefore the temperatures of the oxygen starved fires should have been significantly lower.

The fires in the WTC wreckage were not conventional fires.

Taken together, these figures show that the Taliban has a significant presence in virtually all of Afghanistan.

The Daily News and Long Island's Newsday went with the 9/11 Seventh Anniversary as the lead, the New York Timesdoesn't mention the anniversary at all on their front page and the New York Post went with a pig in lipstick with a small black box in the upper right-hand corner.

France set to impose carbon tax

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has announced plans for a new carbon tax aimed at combating global warming.

The tax will be introduced next year and will cover the use of oil, gas and coal, he said.

The new tax will be 17 euros (£15) per tonne of emitted carbon dioxide (CO2). It will be phased in gradually.

It will apply to households as well as enterprises, but not to the heavy industries and power firms included in the EU's emissions trading scheme.

SEC contrite over failure to uncover Madoff

Contrite U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission officials apologized for bungling five probes that should have uncovered Bernard Madoff's $65 billion fraud, and its internal watchdog told top regulators to be more aggressive in investigating tips.

A scathing report issued last week by SEC Inspector General David Kotz found that the agency missed numerous red flags, did not properly follow up on leads and dismissed tips and complaints that might have uncovered Madoff's investment sham.

Census: Income fell sharply last year

Household income fell sharply and poverty rates rose in 2008 as the severe effects of the recession took their toll on Americans' finances, the Census Bureau reported Thursday.

Median household income dropped 3.6% to $50,303 in 2008, the bureau reported. That was the sharpest drop since at least 1967 and sent income to its lowest point since 1997

A Buddhist’s Perspective: Discussion of America’s battles raises question: ‘Is there a good war or a bad war?’

As the leader of a religious organization, Ohtani does not believe in declaring "good wars" and bad ones and takes no specific position on the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The monshu does observe, though, that following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that Americans "were not able to logically reason what happened and jumped into war."

He noted that the U.S. was attacked by individuals and not by a nation, yet it went to war against the countries of Afghanistan and then Iraq "without cool-headedly reasoning what had happened. That is regrettable."
