John McCain & Joe Lieberman visit Jerusalem
John McCain does not have the qualifications to become President of the United States because he is not a natural born United States citizen.
The United States Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, clearly, “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the [...]

In a last ditch effort to save his candidacy, John McCain has unwisely chosen the low road to oblivion. The remaining thrust of his campaign will be to “sow doubt” about Barack Obama. This tactic has been unsuccessful so far, but what is the desperate and seemingly disoriented McCain to do?
The “sow doubt” strategy will have an effect, however, but certainly not what John McCain has intended. Joining McCain on his low road to oblivion will be Sarah Palin, Joe the “Plumber,” a major chunk of the Republican Party, and, hopefully, Joe Lieberman, McCain’s intended Secretary of State. Continue reading McCain takes the low road to oblivion
Joe the Plumber, What Plumber?
Joe the Plumber, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, former welfare recipient, along with his parents, is a con-artist. He is not registered to operate as a plumber in Ohio, which means he’s not a plumber.
Joe the “Plumber” claims he can work under the license of his boss, Al Newell, but according to Ohio building regulations, Joe the “Plumber” must maintain his own license to do plumbing work.
Mr. Newell, himself is unlicensed!
So neither Wurzelbacher nor his employer, Al Newell, are licensed! This is according to Cheryl Schimming of Lucas County Building Regulations, which handles plumber licenses.
So, not only is Joe the Plumber conning us about himself, he is wrong about his boss, Al Newell. Continue reading Joe the plumber, or Joe the con-artist?
The Republican National Committee spent about $150,000 on clothing, hair styling, makeup and other “campaign accessories” in September for the McCain campaign after Palin, the governor of Alaska, joined the ticket.
The expenses include $75,062 spent at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis Minn., and $41,850 in St. Louis in early September. The committee also reported spending $4,100 for makeup and hair consulting. In the photo above Palin is wearing a $2,500 Valentino jacket. Spreading the wealth? No, this is an Italian jacket, what about buying American, Sarah?
Apparently, the bulk of her purchases were sponsored by an “unknown donor,” (Cindy McCain?) who expected Palin to purchase only three suits. The “unknown donor” was horrified when notified of the amount, and that Palin was purchasing clothes for her entire family. At this point the “unknown donor” cut off all credit to Palin. At that point, some of the aides accompanying her were pressed by Palin into providing their credit cards for even more purchases.
According to Bill O’Reilly on Fox News, Palen:
- Didn’t understand, McCain aides said, that Africa was a continent and not a country. Thought South Africa was the southern part of that “country.”
- Didn’t know the nations involved in the North American Free Trade Agreement – had never heard of NAFTA.
- Would look at her press clippings and have tantrums.
- During the Republican National Convention, McCain staffers Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter were greeted by a towel-wearing Palin when they arrived at her hotel room for a briefing. Continue reading Sarah Palin’s wild expense accounts!
Governor Sarah Palin's SAT Scores
The Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SATs) are given yearly to high school students as part of their entrance requirements for college.
Today we received an email with Sarah Palin’s purported SAT scores. Palin took the test back in 1982, and if these are truly her scores, she is not as far below average as one might think.
She ranks only in the bottom 39% of those taking the test. Continue reading Sarah Palin’s SAT Scores far below average?
In spite of the huge infusions of capital to purchase debt, and now shares, the stock markets of the world continue to plunge. Today, the Dow was down 7.87%. This was the 9th worst percentage loss in one day, for the entire history of the stock market. Twelve more days like today, and the [...]
Sarah Barracuda on the Job
October 10, 2006 (Extra) – Palin guilty on Troopergate: For the reasons explained in section IV of this report, I find that Governor Sarah
Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.11O(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act.
“Sarah Palin was on the verge of inciting a race riot in northern Florida” this week, the Nation reported. The paper said Republican audience members “hurled a racial epitaph” at an African American member of the media while other audience members yelled “kill him” and “treason!” when Barack Obama’s name was mentioned. Palin reportedly responded: “Boy, you guys just get it!”
Washington Post reporter Dana Milbank describes the scene at a rally in Clearwater, Florida this week, where he said “arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Continue reading Palin, “Sambo,” the “Bitch,” & Troopergate
On Friday, October 3, 2008 President Bush signed into law the $700 billion rescue plan. The day before, on Thursday, $430-billion had already been doled out!
We’ve heard of ex-post facto, but this is a new one – ex-pre facto, I guess you could call it.
Bush to the rescue
The bailout plan is Bush’s going away gift to Goldman Sachs and the rest of his buddies. It is the biggest robbery in the history of the – well, of the earth, I guess you could say.
Like eager children, Goldman Sachs, and the other Bush buddies just could not wait – they had to unwrap at least part of their gift one day early.
Neel Kashkari (rhymes with “cash ‘n carry”), a 35 year old from Goldman Sachs (natch), was appointed by Goldman-Sachs-man Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to head of the Office of Financial Stability. Neel will be the guy to pass out the dough. He got an early start, with the $430-billion already passed out.
OK, now for some much-needed comic relief. Only a small portion of the 442 pages that comprise the bill have anything to do with the $700-billion – most of the bill consists of neatly wrapped presents. Continue reading 60% of the $700 billion rip-off spent BEFORE BILL PASSED
Bush & McCain
James G. Abourezk former U.S. senator (D-SD), has written an article entitled Resurrecting a Modern Myth: “The Surge Is Working” (September 26, 2008).
Abourezk writes, “Bush and his political clone, John McCain, are chanting the mantra, ‘the surge is working,’” and McCain has come out for victory and against surrender [...]
Greenspan - Now one plus one...
“Greenspan was considered a master,” Giulio Tremonti, Finance Minister of Italy, has declared. “Now we must ask ourselves whether he is not, after [Osama] bin Laden, the man who hurt America the most. . . . It is clear that what is happening is a disease. It is not the failure of a bank, but the failure of a system. Until a few days ago, very few were willing to realize the intensity and the dramatic nature of the crisis.”
Back in 2002, when his reputation as a genius who spoke in parables was at its peak, Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve, came to Britain to pick up his knighthood. His biggest fan, Gordon Brown, now the UK prime minister, had ensured that the citation said it was being awarded for promoting “economic stability.” Continue reading Greenspan’s parables – now gobbledygook
