SATURDAY JANUARY 29, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Trivia answers and Bumper Stumpers are up under Trivia and Music to your left. Talk to you again (live) Monday night at 10 ET / 7 PT.
FRIDAY JANUARY 28, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Trivia tonight-- 3 hours. Do call. Sad to note that Gladys Horton passed away. She was the original lead singer of The Marvelettes.
As promised, the updated list of Animal Die Offs. Note the "explanations". I can top 'em all with this-- the birds that died in Arkansas-- suicide. They've got a long tradition of Arkancides there, so why not?... More bird deaths on the way in England. The government is about to kill some crows... Anybody say England? That brings us to the NHS Horror of the Day: The British health system doesn't have the money to actually treat direly ill patients and here's why-- the idiot bureaucrats have developed a system where they're paying about a thoussand pounds for a small bottle of salt water. Government at work.
Good to see the republicans ready to probe those special exemptions to Obamacare which are even more egregious when they're given to the big supporters of the program, which a lot of them were.
Think you live in a free country? Get ready for barbarism-- every state in the union allows forced electro-shock therapy-- even when the patient hasn't threatened or harmed anyone including themselves. Here's the latest outrage. Do what you can to tell lawmakers to stop it. It's especially important now, after the whacko in Tucson has led many people to urge the government to make it easier to pull off involuntary commitments. Let's get rid of forced ECT first.
Ya gotta wonder what Mike Evans was told that leads the journalist to say that he never spoke to the Hawaiian governor about Obama's birth certificate. Yes, just a week after he disclosed that Abercrombie was shocked to discover there was no cert, he's now back peddling at break-neck speed. This had to be interesting.
Meanwhile more Hawaiian lawmakers want the release of Obama's cert. You gotta believe they'll create one before this is all over, and that's the troubling part. I'm less concerned about the birth vitals than what the heck he's been doing with a social security number that couldnt' be his-- unless he was a female in his 80s when he got it in Connecticut.
Ground has been broken on the 3.4 billion dollar Homeland Security complex being built in DC. I'm feeling safe. Yeah, right, and prosperous too.... This lunacy from England, but I could see DHS doing it too-- a 3 inch toy gun held by a toy soldier was banned from a flight to Canada. Gotta keep everyone safe.... Actually guns are more likely to do that. One columnist doesn't think so, but she's so biased that she inadvertently gives credence to John Lott's work she disses Utah's Gun Appreciation Day. Yes, Utah has made the Browning M1911 pistol the state gun. Good for them... at the opposite end of the the gun issue is restrictive Chicago, where Rahm Emanuel is back on the ballot. Predictable from the IL supreme court-- and a lot better than Carol Mosleey Braun. Eva Braun would be better than Carol Moseley Braun... And Texas passes sane voter ID requirements. May every other state follow suit, as well all pray no idiot judge will undo this.
THURSDAY JANUARY 27, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) The federal government is going to develop its own drugs.... and perhaps test them on citizens. If this doesn't scare you, nothing will... well maybe the NHS horror of the day will do the trick: Mother dies after 5 hour hospital wait because emergency room was busy treating drunks. NHS replies they give every citizen equal care. Something is wrong with this logic.
Finally some lawmaker sees the light-- Rep. Phil Roe is trying to stop soviet style central planning by scrapping the coming Medicare board, and I wish him all the luck in the world.... Hospitals around the world are prohibiting the filming of the birth of babies. First they claimed patient privacy, then said it was a distraction for the staff-- finally the truth comes out: they're paying a bloody fortune in malpractice settlements when things go wrong and are documented. Rather than stopping filming, should patients of all varieties demand it?
Bergen, NJ has run out of salt. They'll melt snow with pickle juice. It isn't a bad idea actually. Cost saving and they apply it before and after the snow event.
Admitting Mexican trucks is back on the agenda. Here's the unbelievable news. (My favorite part is the English proficiency exam that can be answered in Spanish. Que?)... and why should we have problems with peace loving Mexicans on our roads? Said tongue in cheek as I bring up the story of yet another law enforcement official killed south of the border in Juarez, this time by a federal law enforcement officer. When the cops are killing cops, you might as well hang it up.
3 Supreme Court justices skipped Obama's speech. Can't blame 'em a bit for their thinking... but those who did catch the address may have noted that Obama made fun of pat downs-- and falsely intimated that they were confined to airports. The ACLU is calling him out on this one.
Mutant mosquitos released in Malaysia. Kinda makes you think the Weekly World News is back, but alas, it's for real and the law of unintended consequence is also a real possibility.
Privatize education. Don't make parents break the law to get their kids into a decent school. (That's assuming any public education is decent, and I won't go there, but this story does underscore the difference among them.)
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 26, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) State of the Union address-- as usual, no more than a pep rally. A few interesting moments, many frustrating ones. Missed it? Here's the text.
You've heard that those airport backscatter x-ray machines can be dangerous-- now hear about a woman with a pacemaker who dropped dead after going through one. We all feel more secure now.
The government wants to save money-- maybe they should consider turning off the lights in DC federal buildings at night. It could save millions-- but bureaucrats never tire of spending your dollars... Maryland meanwhile will lower the lights-- on the highway, just where they shouldn't.
Those bird deaths? Look directly to the government. The USDA website explains it all-- proudly... the milions of birds it has"euthanized" including the errant killing of a bald eagle.
TUESDAY JANUARY 25, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) We're back-- and in answer to your request, here's a link to the pictures from our trip.
In answer to another request, for the link to the roll call vote from the Senate's stealth action in passing the Food Safety Bill on Sunday night December 19th, I should have read my own blog-- it was a unanimous voice vote-- no roll call whatsoever.
The story was a bit different in the senate though, and the roll call vote is here. (They actually voted on a cash for clunkers bill-- one of them that didn't pass and was just languishing around, removing all the old language and substituting it with the S.510 verbiage.)
We'll be talking about Obama's State of The Union address tonight, not that there'll be any surprises, though it was probably surprising to Hawaii's governor when he discovered there really is no long form birth certificate for the imposter in chief. Under oath the former Hawaii elections clerk swears there isn't. Gov. Abercrombie should have checked with state workers before adding to the conspiracy he hoped to quell.
Chuck Shumer says he'll make swiss cheese out of the republican's effort to overturn Obamacare. Looks like the SEIU is already doing that-- the union that spent millions to support Obama got the first waivers from his health care bill. Never mind that socialized medicine is such a failure, legislators in Great Britain say they'll offer the choice of private care to their citizens who are more than displeased with the government's version.
Several states are contemplating bankruptcy. The bottom line? An end to pensions, and more evidence of our failed economy... meanwhile one judge temporarily delays loan document shredding. Another judge gives a different company the go ahead to shred away.
And New Jersey which is trying to get to the bottom of the foreclosure mess hears from the big banks-- stop bothering us. Here's some arrogance for you.
Good news for GM- bad for the USA. Sales of GM cars (2.35 million) in China, surpasses the total sold here.
FRIDAY JANUARY 21, 2011 6:00 PM (MT) The Friday show with Felix from the Young Rascals, Dr. Demento & Pat Boone is streaming, and will be until we're live Monday night at 7 (PT). Don't forget, if you want to hear any of this week's shows, you can download them from MyStreamingServer.com.

Talk to you live Monday the 24th.
FRIDAY JANUARY 14, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Trivia tonight. 3 big hours. I'm ready for you. Do your part and call, starting at 7 PT.
We spent the show talking about the proposed changes in Hours of Service for commercial drivers. If you think it doesn't affect you as a four wheeler, you don't realize that one of the changes is a restriction to 13 hours of work a day. Notice, I didn't say driving (that's a crazy quilt of arcane provisions). I said work. Need I mention that many drivers are not employees or workers, but independent business people as owner-operators. So what we're doing here is laying the precedent for the government telling entrepreneurs how long they can work a day.
Of course if you're a professional driver, it's worse than that. Here's a comparison chart of the dregs you've got now and the hell proposed. And here's more info from OOIDA on what's up and how to comment (comment period ends Feb. 28th-- please comment). Links are embedded in the piece, making it even easier to weigh in.
THURSDAY JANUARY 13, 2011 2:00AM (MT) I meant to share the good news yesterday-- Teresa Chambers is reinstated as chief of the US Park Police. It's been a 7 year saga for a woman fired because she dared tell the truth about the danger of staffing levels. She's now vindicated-- with back pay.
Worried about tasers? Forget it. The Dazer Lazer is worse when it comes to crowd control-- unless you don't mind being temporarily blinded (according to their literature anyway-- who knows if you'll ever see again).
That the Obamacare Death Panels are in operation is not big news-- that a US Rep warned his inner circle "not to broadcast this to any of your lists, even if they are 'supporters'-- emails can too easily be forwarded," is an outrage. Don't want to let the people in on what their government is doing, now do we?
Then there's Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan who apparently felt fine about changing expert witness testimony. In her own handwriting you'll see she doesn't like what the expert says, so she rewords it and changes the sentiment completely. Never mind her views. Do we want someone who can comfortably perpetrate this, on the high court?
And along the same vein, Vanderbilt University has applicants to the nursing residency program sign a pledge that they'll assist with abortions-- and then denies it. Frankly I don't care about the pledge. It's the worming out of it that's despicable.
Grow cucumbers in your basement in British Columbia and pay a $5,200 fine. That's better than the woman who had some dirt in her basement. She paid over $10,000. It's part of a program that lets the municipal government go into homes where marijuana growing is suspect. If they don't find it, they can still fine you. Good to know that other goverments are as screwed up as ours.
Not going to dwell on Jared Loughner. Anyone who has researched the guy knows he wasn't motivated by television, radio, right or left-wing ideology or anything outside his head. The real demon (other than Loughner's mental illness and shocking action) in this story is the Pima County Sheriff. Hopefully the good people of Arizona will be voting him out of office. While he was raging on about talk radio, he failed to mention he had every reason in the world to suspect Loughner of bad behavior. Very bad behavior. How bad? Well, he won't release those records-- but he has them.
The issue of Obama's eligibility to hold the office of the president won't go away-- and the most encouraging tactic in assuring this can never happen again is being taken by various states. Montana has a plan (along with Texas, Pennsylvania, Arizona and soon to hopefully be many more.
Finally, here's a story that will explain exactly why the foreclosures may unravel in a very bad way for banks.
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 12, 2011 1:01 AM (MT) Try as democrats and the left might, it turns out the majority of Americans don't buy the reasoning that Jared Loughner was influenced byright wing rhetoric. Even a CBS poll confirms it. Some of the talk is almost laughable-- like Ex-Rep Paul Kanjarski, a Pennsylvania democrat who pleads for civility-- just months after calling for a Florida candidate for governor to be taken out and shot.
Republicans are no better-- like Peter King from New York who is also calling for more gun control legislation. He says he'll introduce it this week. ...Hard to believe that anyone wants to give more power to the federal government-- the same government that experiments on citizens without their own knowledge-- not to mention the horrible schemes they foist upon unsuspecting and totally willing military members. Here's more on that.
Georgia meanwhile wants to combat meth-- by having police gain access to any drug you buy-- over the counter or prescription. Bad idea here.
Jared Loughner continues to be in the news. Maybe the military should have accepted him in '09. At least it wouldn't take him 250,000 bullets to kill the enemy. That's the ratio between the number of bullets used and the amount of rebels killed. We're having to buy more bullets from Israel. I kid you not.
14 statistics revealing how bad our economy has gotten since 2007. 12 facts that prove the wealthy are not affected, at least not adversely. Then there's Bangladesh where everyone was affected in the recent stock market crash.
TUESDAY JANUARY 11, 2011 3:00 AM (MT) Used to be that the fastest interval of time, besting the speed of light, was how long it was after a shooting, for a call for gun control to arise. Now, in front of that, is the call for silencing Americans. Bob Brady wants to pass a bill that would make it a crime to criticize a politician. Don't think it's that bad? Read this. And note, that based on his logic, Obama's speech would be subject to proseution. All that's not to obscure the sad reality that gun control didn't quickly arise. Carolyn McCarthy saw to that. She'll introduce more gun control legislation, probably tomorrow.
Needless to say, gunning down Gabby Giffords is a shock to all of us. May such instances forever evoke our emotional responses. The needless injuries and deaths are, and should be, a shock. It would be despicable, the reaction from the left that this is proof of runaway right wingers, if it weren't so absurd. Firstly, the shooter Jared Loughner, was if anything, a left-winger. Here's what a long time friend said. And here's part of his inspiration: a radical leftist punk band. Liberals are quick to point out that Mein Kampf was on his favorite reading list-- but they fail to note the Communist Manifesto was higher on that list-- and that the list in total was pretty much a required reading list. No surprise there, since Bill Ayers was the force behind the curriculum at Jared's high school. That sounds nuts, so you better read this.
A lot of talk about Sarah Palin's map targeting democrats in the last election. Amazing that the Democrats themselves in 2004 drew a Targeting Strategy map which would put Sarah's to shame. In truth, neither are wrong, and neither advocate killing, but interesting how the left would ignore their own work and highlight that of their "enemies." Actually leftist comments on line attacked GIffords, in one case, saying she was "dead to me" after voting against Pelosi. If you're still thinking the leftists don't foster the climate of hate they condemn, walk down memory lane for a decade. Here's the 2000-2010 timeline, note their kindness.
More examples of left wing rage and hate? Here you go. Being a libertarian, I'm often hated by both sides, and I can tell you first hand, that no one on the right holds a candle to the vitriol on the left.
Jared Loughner was a disturbed, deranged young man who will be brought to justice. Let's pray that in the wake of this, we won't see the death of the constitution. Oh, a few more things. What's up with the Pima County Sheriff? Where does he get off condemning political speech. Glad to see a Georgia rep condemning his inappropriate comments. Maybe if he spent more time on his job, someone in uniform would have been on hand for Gabby's gathering. Oh, and if a rabid right winger wanted to make a political statement, I don't think he'd pick a gun owner who fought against the DC gun ban.
Then there's this: Giffords subscribed to Loughner's YouTube page. Why?
And while we're asking questions, on a totally different subject what's up with the lobbyist and long term democratic figure, wife of an Obama staffer, who was found dead in her burned out car? How can anyone call this an accident? And of our going conspiracy, here's more (though nothing particularly earth shattering) on Jack Wheeler's murder.
Buried among all the Giffords coverage-- Obama is moving forward with his Federal Internet ID scheme. This is bad news.
Meanwhile more bad news concerning Obamacare. Think you have choice of private insurance? The feds will stop that with these demands and mandates-- all for your own good, of course.
SATURDAY JANUARY 8, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) HAPPY BIRTHDAY VAL SHIVELY!! The guy who has any old record you could possibly want is older than most of them. Here's hoping he's around for decades to come.
Trivia answers and Bumper Stumpers are up under Trivia and Music to your left. Talk to you Monday night at 7 (PT).
FRIDAY JANUARY 7, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Trivia tonight. 3 big hours. Join me at 7 (PT)
Among the awful provisions in the Food Safety farce-- we turn over control of our food supply to global bodies. I know that many of you thought I was blowing this out of proportion. You won't when you read this: The World Bank intends to manage our food supply. Hardly a suprise..... Also not surprising that William Daley is Obama's new chief of staff. Yeah, that Daley family. The current mayor's brother and legendary mayor's son.
Mobile guard towers in Wal-Mart parking lots? What.. the Homeland Security video wasn't enough? ...and of course while citizens are being surveilled, our borders are wide open. The parents of the slain border guard want answers. 3 weeks and no explanation, no arrest,s no news on exactly how their son was killed. Meanwhile stories swirl that the bullets, and the guns were courtesy of the ATF. No confirmation yet, but several former border agents suspect that's what's behind the silence and inaction.
More on other mysteries: someone plotted the locations of the dead birds and came up with this map. Some viewers think it reminds them of satellite paths. You decide if it's aflockalypse.
Not a lot of coverage about H1N1 flu this year-- but then again, the H1N1 vaccine was included in the seasonal flu shot that was widely accepted. Now comes word that tens of thousands are flu-stricken in Great Britain including 18,000 NHS workers.... Then there's the murder of John Wheeler-- his cell phone was found in the house across the street. Something very questionable is happening here.
THURSDAY JANUARY 6, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Great to talk with Jerome Corsi earlier. If you missed the show, you can hear it on the stream or download it from MyStreamingServer.com Don't forget to sign up for his Red Alert Newsletter at GilfordSecurities.com.
We were talking about the disturbing news that China now, in addition to demanding all blueprints and proprietary information on anything US companies make there, is also demanding that any company making things there, partner with a Chinese company (meaning the Chinese government since this is not exactly capitalism) 50/50. Here are the details. That's on the heels of China (and Russia) dropping the dollar. If you're not depressed yet, give me a chance tonight. I've got plenty of things you need to hear that you won't want to hear.
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 5, 2011 12:10 AM (MT) If it wasn't bad enough that the Food Safety Farce, S.510 passed stealthily in the dead of night, add to the insanity that the guy who will be in charge of it has a long background with... Monsanto. I couldn't make this up.
Meanwhile the 9th Circuit Court rules that the longstanding Christian cross atop the Mt. Soledad war memorial is unconstitutional. This is not pleasing the American Legion or much of anyone else, except the ACLU which brought the case forward.
You heard about dead fish in Arkansas, Louisiana and now New Zealand-- hundreds of snapper washing up mysteriously... you won't hear Al Gore quote this, but scientists admit climate change was worse before even the thought of CO2 involvement... back to New Zealand-- among those declassified UFO reports is some interesting data linking the appearance of chemtrails to the outbreak of disease.
Here's a mystery: What happeend to the former Bush and Reagan official, who at age 66 was found in a landfill. Graduating from West Point, Yale Law and Harvard Business, this was not the guy anyone would have expected to die this way. So what did he know? And who was willing to kill him to forever silence him? It might be more local than anyone expects.
TUESDAY JANUARY 4, 2011 12;01 AM (MT) Not convinced Obamacare is evil and diabolical. Get a look at this. Never mind that the poor are completely screwed if they suddenly see a small increase in earnings, concentrate on what happens to doctors-- the part about a $50,000 fine for any service the government (actually private agents thereof) determine are unnecessary or ineffective. That's $50,000 per item. Think any doctor will be willing to go out on a limb and innovate? Welcome to cookie cutter medicine.... Glad to see Wisconsin as latest state to join the lawsuit against Obamacare.
How bad will it get? TIme for the NHS Horror Of the Day where a top administrator is pushing for all appointments or other communications to be handled through call centers in India. They admit Brits won't like it, but that won't stop them.... And if we follow Europe on healthcare, how long before we take their lead on grabbing private pensions and retirement savings. Hungary just ordered citizens to turn over all their retirement funds, or be excluded from their version of medicare-- not from paying into it, of course...
Proof of the discriminatory nature of the Obama administration. You'll have to read it carefully to believe it, but here's the deal: Kinston North Carolina voters overwhelmingly approved non-partisan local elections. The Obama administration overturned it saying hard core white democrats wouldn't vote for blacks if they didn't know they were running as democrats.
Everyone talking about the mass die off of birds and fish in Arkansas. Looking for the conspiracy angle? Perhaps it's government testing.... 30 reasons why 2011 is going to suck for America's middle class... another reason Calfiornia sucks for everyone-- good bye 100 watt incandescent bulb. Mystery Solved: Woman missing from Illinois car crash, found dead.
December 2010 is here.
