Yet another Soros tentacle exposed

Editor’s comment: Jim Wallis and Sojourners are also the CFR “Christian backers” of ‘Imam’ Feisal Abdul Rauf of the so called ground zero mosque – it seems every globalist tentacle extends into this project.

(AmericanThinker) – Jim Wallis, the man behind the so-called “religious left” – a left wing evangelical activist who worked to get evangelical support for Obama — has been exposed as another stooge of George Soros. And he had the gall to accuse Marvin Olasky, the conservative evangelical who asked Wallis to admit his connections to Soros, of lying. Sarah Pulliam Bailey

Obama, the one-term president

Q: Will Barack Obama be a one-term president?

A: Yes, he might last that long.

(Politico) – Recently, President Obama decided he had to weigh in on the controversy surrounding the proposed construction of a Muslim community center and mosque near ground zero in New York.

It is a controversy Obama could have ducked (he had been doing so for weeks), but he finally decided he needed to lend his voice and the weight of the presidency to speaking out for what is right.

So on Friday night, he said: “As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan in accordance with local laws and ordinances.”

See what I mean about not getting it? Full story here.

In Supporting The Ground Zero Mosque, Barack Obama Falls On His Sword

(PaulWatson) – With President Barack Obama’s political dynasty already on life support, his decision to publicly back the hugely unpopular building of a Muslim mosque near Ground Zero confirms that Obama, or rather the advisors that pull his strings, have decided to commit political suicide and cut him loose from the Washington power structure, with the hope of fooling Americans with another establishment Republican as a legitimate alternative in 2012.

This issue isn’t about whether you believe the official story that 19 Muslims carried out 9/11, nor is it really about whether or not a mosque should be built near Ground Zero.

Constitutionally speaking of course, the government has no business whatsoever interfering in religion or private property rights under the First Amendment, which states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

However, the important facet of this issue is not really about the rights and wrongs of the mosque, it’s about Obama politically choosing to lend support to something that he knows full well is vitriolically opposed by the vast majority of Americans. Continue reading

New Footage from Ground Zero Obtained by FOIA

(NorCalTruth) – Earlier this year 9/11 blogger, along with other websites, ran the story of a Freedom of Information Act request that ended up releasing 3,160 electronic records relating to the World Trade Center collapse investigation.

Liquidity to Keep the Financial System from Collapsing in a Heap

(MikeWhitney) – Ben Bernanke never should have been reappointed as Fed chairman. Obama made a big mistake.

Nor has he pushed for the regulations that are needed to restore confidence in the system. Continue reading

The Spend-And-Borrow Economy – Nouriel Roubini

In the last few months the world economy has been saved from a near-depression. That feat has been achieved by a range of extraordinary government stimulus measures: In the U.S. and in China, and to a lesser extent in Europe, Japan and other countries, governments have pumped liquidity, slashed policy rates, cut taxes, primed demand and ring-fenced and back-stopped the financial system. All of this has worked, but at a cost. Governments have been spending and borrowing like never before. The question now is: how do they stop? Continue reading

Memo to Bernanke: “No Wage Growth; No Recovery”

A recent poll shows that most economists now believe that the recession, which began in December 2007, will end in the third quarter of 2009. There’s been an uptick in manufacturing and consumer confidence, and the decline in housing prices appears to be flattening out. Unfortunately, the return to positive GDP will likely be short-lived.

No Exit for Ben – Peter Schiff

“Solution” to the Financial Crisis: Game Theory Exposes PPIP As Fraudulent

Game theory tells us that a risk neutral gambler would pay $50 dollars for a coin flip that paid $0 for Heads and $100 for Tails. Game theorists would call $50 the value of the bet.

Suppose someone is willing to fund your gambling problem, and lend you $80 at zero interest. Better still, if you lose the bet you don’t have to pay him back. Under that scenario, the same gambler would pay $90 for the bet, giving him an even chance of winning or losing $10. Continue reading
