Obama is in Some Trauma!
At first, I thought this New York Times piece on Barack Obama was pretty intriguing.
NEW QUESTIONS raised about his FINANCES. Boy, I figured, the investigative reporters are really on his trail now.
Consider the lead: "Less than two months after ascending to the United States Senate, Barack Obama bought more than $50,000 worth of stock in two speculative companies whose major investors included some of his biggest political donors."
Hmmm . . .
"One of the companies was a biotech concern that was starting to develop a drug to treat avian flu. In March 2005, two weeks after buying about $5,000 of its shares, Mr. Obama took the lead in a legislative push for more federal spending to battle the disease."
Hey, that doesn't sound good.
"The most recent financial disclosure form for Mr. Obama, an Illinois Democrat, also shows that he bought more than $50,000 in stock in a satellite communications business whose principal backers include four friends and donors who had raised more than $150,000 for his political committees."
I'm thinking, is this the next Hillary-and-the-cattle-futures?
But then I read that Obama's spokesman says the senator didn't know about the investments until the fall of 2005, and then sold them for a $13,000 loss.
And then, the coup de grace: "The spokesman, Bill Burton, said Mr. Obama's broker bought the stocks without consulting the senator, under the terms of a blind trust that was being set up for the senator at that time but was not finalized until several months after the investments were made."
A blind trust?
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi was captured Friday in a raid in Abu Ghraib on the western outskirts of Baghdad, said Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, spokesman of the Baghdad security operation. U.S. officials had no confirmation of the capture.
Al-Baghdadi has been identified in statements posted on Islamic extremist Web sites as the head of the Islamic State, which was proclaimed last year after the death of the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
Al-Baghdadi was said to have headed the Mujahedeen Shura Council, an alliance of al-Qaida and other jihadist organizations, which was set up last year to downplay the role of foreigners in the Iraqi insurgency. The name first surfaced after al-Zarqawi's death, when the Mujahedeen Shura Council posted a condolence message on a militant Web site.

A Short List of PETA Facts
- PETA has stated repeatedly that their goal is "total animal liberation." This means no pets, no meat, no milk, no zoos, no circuses, no fishing, no leather, and no animal testing for lifesaving medicines.
- PETA has given tens of thousands of dollars to convicted arsonists and other violent criminals.
- PETA funds the misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine 3, an animal-rights organization that presents itself as an unbiased source for nutritional information and has links to a violent animal-rights group called SHAC.
- PETA has used their contributors’ tax-exempt donations to fund the North American Earth Liberation front, an FBI-certified “domestic terrorist” group responsible for fire bombs and death threats.
- PETA regularly targets kids as early as elementary school with anti-meat and anti-milk propaganda.
- PETA spends less than one percent of its $13 million budget actually caring for animals.
- PETA has repeatedly attacked groups like the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, for conducting animal testing to find cures for birth defects and life-threatening diseases.
Brit Hume on Libby
First of all, I wish to apologize for the Crazy Liberal who posted this video. As you can see from his flashing a website across the screen that basically threatens Libby with death, this person who posted the video is a bit unstable. Just after the oil commentary is Brits commentary… enjoy (minus the death threats and whiny voice commentary at the beginning):
Scooter Convicted for “No Crime?”
I was shocked when this juror came out and said the following:
This is a great place to post an article on NRO about the same exact thing I thought when I watched the above juror discuss his thinking behind the conviction:
Clearly there was no partisanship coming from this juror about what the other jurors thought about the leak! Yeah right. We know who the original leaker was, and we know Scooter had no connection with it. Then, what was Scooter trying to lie about? Was he “COVERING UP” a non-crime? That doesn’t make sense. I will post a few editorial responses to this verdict:
It’s funny, if there had been any evidence of the Whitehouse leaking the name the special prosecutor would have charged someone with a crime for doing so. Valerie wasn’t classified as an undercover agent for many many years, which of course made it impossible for the prosecutor to even charge anyone with blowing her cover because she had no cover to blow. No crime was or could be committed.
I wanted to post this excerpt as well from the left leaning magazine the Nation. Please take note how the writer goes through what the trial wasn’t about, but then in the same paragraph reverts right to what it wasn’t about… like the juror said all of them were saying. Remember, as you read this, the special prosecutor could find nothing to support these claims that both the nation and the juror mentioned:
For the reason stated above in the Nation article, I will now post the entire article by Jed Babbin

Health Care… Hillary and Obama Style!
There are some good books out there on this… ask me if you are interested.
Another video can be watched here, it is called Dead Meat - (WMV)... I highly suggest taking an additional 25-minutes out of your life and watch this eye-opening video documentary.
Keep in mind I think both people/organization are hypocritical idiots pushing a socialist dogma more than wanting to “help” the earth. So I find it funny when these two go at eachother.

The Most ‘Inconvenient Truth’: According to U.N., Animals Raised for Food Generate More Greenhouse Gases Than All Cars and Trucks Combined
In the letter, PETA points out the following:
- The effect that our meat addiction is having on the climate is truly staggering. In fact, in its recent report “Livestock’s Long Shadow—Environmental Issues and Options,” the United Nations determined that raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined
- Researchers at the
have determined that switching to a vegan diet is more effective in countering global warming than switching from a standard American car to a Toyota Prius. Universityof Chicago
PETA also reminds Gore that his critics love to question whether he practices what he preaches and suggests that by going vegetarian, he could cut down on his contribution to global warming and silence his critics at the same time.
“The single best thing that any of us can do to for our health, for animals, and for the environment is to go vegetarian,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “The best and easiest way for Mr. Gore to show his critics that he’s truly committed to fighting global warming is to kick his meat habit immediately.”
