You know what? Eff you CNN. In reporting the story of the death of a U.S. Special forces member, CNN has seen it to be fit to offer the story in Arabic.

Read a version of this story in Arabic.

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — An elite U.S. special forces team rescued an American doctor who had been abducted in Afghanistan, but lost one of their own members in the mission, officials said.

Pardon us a moment while we go puke. Here is the link – http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/09/world/asia/afghanistan-taliban-rescue/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

Arabic, flipping Arabic. CNN is based in the good old USA, owned by its parent company Time Warner and a division of Turner Broadcasting and where the vast majority of us speak and read English. You want it translated- go use google translate or one of the zillion other places on the web that will translate it for you. For CNN to add a link for a translation in Arabic is appalling. Why not a translation into German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, etc. What? Doesn’t the rest of freaking world want to read the story too? An American soldier is dead and his story is being shared specifically in Arabic. Despicable.

It’s the New World Order in America, it pisses us off and is evidence of the Islamization of America. You want to be a Muslim in America fine, that’s up to you but here we don’t press #1 for English.

Yet.

It’s not that we hate Muslims, oh no- we hate Sharia Law and people and politicians who dance around it’s invasion of America in the name of political correctness. Take a look at France, Egypt, and many other places where Catholic & Christian churches are attacked mainly by Muslim Extremists. Eff that.

The doctor, Dilip Joseph and two other captives were there on behalf of Morning Star Development. He serves as it’s medical advisor. MorningStar Publications and Ministries is a diverse and expanding international ministry founded by Rick and Julie Joyner in 1985.

The Goal of Islam

Kamal Saleem

Rick Joyner
Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Today on Prophetic Perspectives Rick Joyner is joined by special guest, Kamal Saleem. Kamal Saleem is a former Muslim terrorist who became a Christian through the faithful love and support of believers after a terrible car accident. “Today, Kamal Saleem educates state and federal political leaders, military leaders, intelligence specialists, security officials and contractors, law enforcement agencies, foundations, non-profits, churches, synagogues, universities, military academies and receptive Muslim audiences on what he knows of the deadly enemy without – and the cancerous enemy within.” http://www.morningstartv.com/prophetic-perspective-current-events/goal-islam

Basically a group of stupid, unarmed Christians were in Afghanistan working at a rural medical clinic in eastern Kabul and got abducted by a group of armed men, also know as Taliban- followers of Sharia and CNN offers the story in Arabic. Because you know what? America is under Sharia attack and better wake the eff up when the U.S. main stream media reports in Arabic.

“He gave his life for his fellow Americans, and he and his teammates remind us once more of the selfless service that allows our nation to stay strong, safe and free,” President Barack Obama said of the slain U.S. service member, who was not immediately identified.

What does Morning Star have to say about it?

Despite the kidnappings of Joseph and its two other staffers, Morning Star reiterated its “commitment to continue its work” in Afghanistan.

You know what? Eff you too Morning Star. Go hire a military contractor to protect your ass. We hope the least Morning Star can do is to provide some financial help to the family of the dead Navy Seal. Although, personally we’d tell them to shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

We say a prayer for the dead soldier and America, a sigh of relief for the rescued man, and will avoid CNN.

End rant. December 10, 2012.

President Obama's alleged birth certificate

President Obama's alleged birth certificate

Did the state of Hawaii, factcheck and the Annenberg Foundation just have a big old luau, roast a pig on birth certificate records- including President Obama’s, for the entire state and the voter wasn’t invited?

Lou Dobbs of CNN did a story (6/23/09) on a topic that some of us by now have reasonably asked ourselves- where is Obama’s Birth Certificate to prove his validity as natural born citizen? In questioning the so-called birthers, the shit hit the fan as CNN’s president as Jon Klein President of CNN allegedly said in an email-

“It seems this story is dead- because anyone who still is not convinced doesn’t really have a legitimate beef.” Klein asked CNN researchers to dig into the question of why Obama couldn’t produce the original birth certificate. The researchers contacted the Hawaii Health Dept. and confirmed that paper documents were discarded in 2001 when the department went paperless. That reportedly includes Pres. Obama’s original birth certificate. http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/cnn/jon_klein_on_birthers_it_seems_this_story_is_dead_122546.asp#more

If the story were dead, why did the President of a major media outlet request the research in the first place?  Is Klein letting Dobbs be the fall guy?  Dobbs has expressed his personal belief that Obama was born in Hawaii.

I disagree with Klein in that I as an American citizen do, and am quite entitled to have a legitimate beef with a man as a sitting president who will not, or can not, and definitely has not provided proof- beyond any reasonable doubt that he is Constitutionally qualified to hold the office.

The center of attention is of course President Obama’s birth certificate, but what about his other records that he has failed to release to the public?  A full list of missing or now classified documents that he refuses to release are at  http://rightsoup.com/list-of-records-obama-refuses-to-release/.

Last year Hawaii released an official statement from the director of health Dr. Chiyome Fukino that she has seen Obama’s birth certificate and it exsits- circumventing State law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes §338-18) which prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record. 

As the world turn, Dobbs said on his show July 23, 2009 that the state of Hawaii discarded Obama’s paper birth certificate eight years ago. So what the hell did the Hawaii Health Department officials see and what exactly did they mean to say in their news release of October 31, 2008?  A copy of the release is athttp://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2009/07/24/hawaii-discarded-obama-birth-certificate-lou-dobbs-cnn-july-23-2009-dobbs-wants-obama-to-produce-birth-certificate/

If all birth certificates were converted to electronic versions then what document is factcheck http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html  showing us, claiming that it has seen Obama’s birth certificate- raised seal and all?  Um, remember they are funded by the Annenberg Foundation I recall- http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/07/obama.ayers/

The project’s organizing committee asked Obama to serve as the board chairman in 1995.  Annenberg Project Executive Director Ken Rollings said Ayers was not a member of that ad hoc group when the decision was made.  For seven years, Ayers and Obama — among many others — worked on funding for education projects, including some projects advocated by Ayers.

Why can you still request a printed copy of  a birth certificate from Hawaii if all records are now electronic?   http://hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/pdf/birth.pdf

This is nothing new to birthers, it just got the attention of a few more folks who just got cable TV due to the switch from analog to digital. 

Score one for CNN.

Video Killed the Radio Star is a song by the British group Buggles and was released in 1979. It celebrates the golden days of radio, talking of a singer whose career is cut short by television.  It was the first music video shown on MTV in North America when the music channel debuted on August 1, 1981, at 12:10 A.M.  Obama would have been about 20 years old. [If I saw his birth certificate I could tell you exactly how old he was -but alas, it has never been shown to the public-only a copy of a COLB. 

Leave it to Obama to kill what is left of radio listenership.   With an, in your face- I don’t need the radio attitude toward Rush Limbaugh, Obama continues to capitalize on the Internet and “for the first time, the weekly Democratic address has been released as a web video rather than the traditional radio address. http://change.gov/newsroom/entry/your_weekly_address_from_the_president_elect/  and at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd8f9Zqap6U By posting the address on You Tube we can see that more than 550,000 people have viewed it.  Too bad the comments and ratings have been disabled.

His campaign on the net was masterful and again we are witness to the landscape of change in communications.  Communicating will change even further this winter when TV will only be broadcast under the digital domain.  February 17, 2009, all full-power broadcast television stations in the United States will stop broadcasting on analog airwaves and begin broadcasting only in digital. The FCC claims digital broadcasting will allow stations to offer improved picture and sound quality and additional channels. http://www.dtv.gov/ 

That means that people who use an antenna to watch TV will likely get no more service after Feb. 17. The exceptions are if the TV is a digital TV, TV service comes from cable or another paid source or you bought one of those digital converter boxes (two $40 coupons are available at www.DTV2009.gov). See my “Guide to the 2009 Digital TV transition.”  What no one fails to mention is the jackpot each of the license holders has been given.  http://unusualmusic.livejournal.com/293881.html  writes  “Although the airwaves are the property of the public under US law, and broadcasters receive their licenses from the FCC only on the condition that they serve the public interest, neither Congress nor the FCC, have attached any public service or public interest requirement to the thousands of new DTV channels that current broadcasters will receive. And current broadcasters, according to the deal worked out by Congress and the FCC back in the 1990s, are the only ones upon whom the new stations made possible by DTV will be bestowed. They’re in. Congress and the FCC, in their wisdom didn’t think local governments, schools, colleges, libraries, unions, community organizations, local churches, blacks, Latinos or females deserved a shot at any of the thousands of new DTV channels. They’re out. That’s it and that’s all.

Since airwaves are free we are now being held hostage to paying for cable in order to receive good reception but cable broadcasters are not the only one to actually use cable.    Comcast, AT&T, Sprint, and the others all make use of cable but fail to talk about all the dormant dark fiber laid in the 1990’s cris-crossing the country that is not being used. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_fiber  We see companies charging and limiting band with, capping usage, and charging for bytes of traffic to boost revenue.  Another major media shift has been underway for some time regarding CNN, who is underway to surpass The Associated Press, Reuters, and UPI as a news source available to the media.  “So in addition to cablecasting, web casting and mobile casting (its big three destination plays), it [sic- CNN] figures it can make some money offering the same content to other news outlets. Call it syndication, call it distribution or call it, in the old parlance it has chosen, the CNN Wire.    http://www.contentbridges.com/2008/11/cnn-changes-the-wire-game.html ” I call it a big monopoly.

http://www.techpresident.com/ reports that The Obama-Biden transition team has just named the staunchly pro-Internet Susan Crawford its co-lead in the review of the FCC, Federal Communications Commission.   Crawford, a leading expert on communications policy, is the founder of OneWebDay, called “an environmental movement for the Internet ecosystem.” She was, until recently, also a member of the board of directors of ICANN, the organization charged with overseeing some of the Internet’s operations.* Here more of her thoughts here http://onewebday.org/?page_id=310 and her thoughts on the “man in the middle”- the government’s role in monitoring the Internet.

Seeing as Al Gore invented the Internet is should seem only fitting that a government entity should monitor it, right?  ROFL.  http://news.zdnet.com/2100-9595_22-151059.html notes that programs more intrusive than Carnivore may be in use and in  in violation of the Wiretap Act and the 4th Amendment to the Constitution. ” Instead of recording only what a particular suspect is doing, agents conducting investigations appear to be assembling the activities of thousands of Internet users at a time into massive databases, according to current and former officials. That database can subsequently be queried for names, e-mail addresses or keywords. ”

Justice Department’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section is a busy place.  http://www.scmagazineus.com/Study-Internet-service-providers-facing-more-larger-threats/article/120828/  Internet service providers (ISPs) are facing more security threats, while attacks are becoming larger and more sophisticated.
That finding is from Arbor Networks’ Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, The report compiles survey responses from 66 lead security engineers from North America, South America, Europe and Asia. They were asked questions relating to Internet security threats and engineering challenges occurring between August 2007 and July 2008.The scale of attacks have been growing steadily since 2001, but this year’s largest reported distributed denial-of- service (DDoS) attack reached 40 gigabytes per second against a single target, the report states.

[I]n a final statement that’s likely to send shivers down the spines of telecom company executives, she [Crawford] said that she believes Internet access is a “utility.”

Hic up, most utilities are taxable.

No wonder Obama put forth so much effort into early voting when he, himself knew that there would be issues surrounding his character and the entire voting process that might make him less appealing in the last minute before entering into the voting booth.

With just three days left until Election Day, a new CBS News poll finds that the Democratic presidential ticket of Obama and Biden leads its Republican counterpart by 13 points among likely voters, 54 percent to 41 percent.  Yet Zogby according to (CNN) — Sen. John McCain has inched ahead of Sen. Barack Obama in national polls, but the Democratic candidate holds a steady lead in the most recent Electoral College estimates. http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/09/09/presidential.polls/

Oh, just shut up already.  I personally would put my family before anything in my life- I am a religious person, a Catholic in fact, and I while I believe in God, family for me comes first.  I see no evidence that Obama’s family comes first with relatives of every mix, nationality and religion scattered through out the world living in poverty.

Obama has down right, dirty deeded and unscrupioulsy attempted to influence early voters on the premise of reform.  What needs to be reformed is the whole idea of early voting.   Election day in America is November 4th, not one day before or one day after.  We have bent and yeilded the laws to make voting a convenience and it is a slap in the face of the American Voter to think that with out a rational excuse, you can vote early because you might have to stand in line for an hour or so on election day.  We have soldiers standing for us on foreign soil complaining they don’t have working guns and some shmuck will compain about the weather on election day.  Go figure. 

“Obama, bidding to become the nation’s first black president, led in national polls as well as surveys in several battleground states. McCain’s hopes of an upset hinged on winning all or nearly all the states that carried Bush to victory in 2004, and possibly carrying Pennsylvania to give him a margin for error. ” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/01/obama-mccain-visit-red-  st_n_139946.html  As if all of America didn’t know the color of Obama’s skin, the media must once again state the obvious, Obama is black.  Yawning now, most don’t really care what color That One is. 

Curtis Gans, director of the Committee for the Study of the American Electorate at American University, says the trend may show the impact of Obama’s get-out-the-vote effort. “It might indicate an advantage, at least out of the early voting figures, for the Democratic Party,” he says. But Republicans could close that gap, he notes at http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/election2008/2008-10-21-early-voting_N.htm

Is it fair to say that early voters might be registered democratics who stand the most to benefit from that One, O’bama’s spread the wealth programs?  Yep. Many early Democratic voters can go at thier leisure unlike the rest of many Republicans who actually have jobs and are accountable to a time clock and would not necessarily sacrifice personal paid time off the job to go and vote. 

With less than 72 hours I don’t care if you have to crawl uphill both ways to vote on Election Day.  Vote and Vote McCain.

Red Rover, Red Rover can Rashid Khalidi come over? 

Obama’s list of friends that he used to play with keeps coming back to haunt him.  MSM- Main Street Media portrays Obama like a cult leader, foraging his way through the USA, spreading his message of a redistribution of wealth,  rather than focusing on how Obama got to the Democratic Nomination in the first place.  Obama did not win the popular vote or the electoral vote, he was duly appointed by Pelosi. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/10/28/obamas-job-application-denied/

In another fine example of his character, while Obama has admitted previous associations with Rashid Khalidi there is now more proof as to how close the relationship was.  The LA Times said it obtained a video of Obama delivering an in-person testimonial in 2003 at the farewell party of anti-Israel professor Rashid Khalidi, who at the time was departing the University of Chicago for a new teaching position at Columbia University.  The LA Times says it will not release the video or its contents to the media. Guests besides Obama at the dinner for Khalidi included former Weather Underground members Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn.

http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/10/fox-news-reports-on-la-times.html “A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi,” said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb.  “The election is one week away, and it’s unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job – make information public,” he said.  But then McCain changed course…

“I changed my mind, and I want to thank you,” said Sen. McCain in a letter to editors at the Times. “You folks go ahead, stick with your bold decision to keep that video secret. After all, what’s a free press for, if not to withhold news that people don’t really need, or that might cause discomfort just a few days before an election?” http://www.scrappleface.com/?p=3175

http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=M2FjMDY1ZWMwNWE0NTRhZjY0NGJmZTY1MWQ1YjVhN2M=”Khalidi is not distancing himself from his past. “Consistent with what you’d expect from someone who justified PLO attacks on civilians in Israel and Lebanon from 1976 to 1982, Khalidi routinely refers to Israel as a “racist” and “apartheid” state, and professes to believe in a “one-state” solution to the conflict.The Khalidis and Obamas were good friends. In his capacity as a director of the Woods Fund, Obama in 2001 and 2002 steered $75,000 to the Arab American Action Network, the brainchild of Rashid and Mona Khalidi. According to an L.A. Times account of the dinner, Obama mentioned that he and Michelle had been frequent dinner guests at the Khalidi home (just another guy in the neighborhood?) and that the Khalidis had even baby-sat for the Obama girls.”

Here we have a wanna be leader of the free world, Barack Obama at a roast and toast for former PLO leader Khalidi who has made clear his opinion of Israel, and the media won’t release it.  In more from the National Review Online, “Obama told the crowd that those talks with the Khalidis had been “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots. . . . It’s for that reason that I’m hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation — a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table” but around “this entire world.”

Here is a consitsant reminder for Voters, Obama lists among his associates not only Rashidconsistent Khalidi, but” Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, and how could we forget the man of the hour, His holiness in hate, the mentor to Barack….Mr. Wright…..” http://www.floppingaces.net/2008/03/23/the-obama-associates/:

If Obama is nothing else, he is guilty by association of choosing less than reputable figures to guide his political career and influence his policies for the future of America.  Is there anyone associated with Obama who is not a crook? http://www.hillaryclintonforum.net/discussion/archive/index.php/f-113.html  Right about now, Hillary and Bill must be doing the happy dance in their choice to at the very least distance themselves from Obama, even while being forced by the DNC to support him. 

“The long list of evil Obama associates seems to grow daily and although Obama has spent the last few years dodging questions, ignoring demands for full open disclosure of his past and making excuses about a plethora of bad associations, one fact seems glaringly obvious…Obama has far more to hide than to share!  http://www.zimbio.com/pilot?ZURL=%2FBarack%2BObama%2Farticles%2F2065%2FAdvanced%2BGuilt%2BAssociation%2BBarack%2BObama&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freerepublic.com%2Ffocus%2Ff-news%2F2090301%2Fposts

When Nixon uttered his famous “I am not a crook” line, nobody took him seriously. While he didn’t personally break into the Democratic Party offices at the Watergate Hotel, he surrounded himself with the crooks and scumbags who did. http://www.brainshavings.com/2008/10/barack-obamas-friends-and-associates.html

The actions of The LA Times are dispicable and a slap in the face to freedom of the press and down right good journalism.  If the LA Times never releases the video it really won’t matter as Main Stream America and good old boys like “Joe the Plumber” are coming in force to question the Obama sales pitch.  Joe was on Fox recently talking about his opinion on Obama’s stance on Israel. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/10/28/foxs-shepard-smith-forced_n_138674.html  “Anyway, five minutes with Joe The Plumber had Shepard Smith so frustrated that the Fox anchor felt compelled to issue a disclaimer, immediately following the segment, pushing back on any notion that Obama would mean the “death of Israel,” saying: “I just want to make this 100 percent perfectly clear — Barack Obama has said repeatedly and demonstrated repeatedly that Israel will always be a friend of the United States, no matter what happens once he becomes President of the United States.”  It is hard to fathom a President Obama enhancing a peace process for Isreal when he is friendly with the likes of Rashid Khalidi.     

http://townhall.com/columnists/FrankJGaffneyJr/2008/10/06/characters_count?page=full goes on about Characters do Count.  In Obama-land, Israel will always be a friend to him and America- just like, other radicals like Rezko, Auchi, Odinga, AyersdespicableIsrael, Farrakhan, and Reverend Wrong. 

Obama has purchased a half hour of television time, scheduled to air tonight, Wednesday, October 29, 2008.  The ad is slated to air on MSNBC, making it the only cable news outlet to run the ad. NBC, Fox, CBS, and Univision will also broadcast the ad.  CNN declined to accept the infomercial.  A big pat on the back to CNN for doing it’s job, reporting the news- however slanted it may be. CBS, NBC and Fox will pocket $1 million per network for the half hour of paid advertisement. There are also rumors circulating that Fox moved the start time of the World Series Coverage, but Fox Network says it did not move the World Series for the campaign ad, and that the first pitch was never slated for earlier than 8:30 PM. ”

The Federal Election Commission Friday[9-8-08] approved payment of $84.1 million in federal funds for the general election campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin…. In that letter the candidates agreed to abide by the overall spending limit (there are no state-by-state limits) and to other legal requirements, including a post-campaign audit.  Presidential candidates accepting the federal payment are subject to a spending limit of $84.1 million, the amount of the payment, plus a combined personal spending limit of $50,000 from their personal funds.Additional funds may be raised, subject to the limits and prohibitions of the Federal Election Campaign Act, for legal and accounting expenses. http://www.fec.gov/press/press2008/20080908cert.shtml

Obama opted out and has significantly received more donations than McCain.  I wonder, if in part, the reason he chose not to accept federal funds was to avoid some of the legal requirements and possibly to avoid an audit.

Obama’s largest contributors to date is William Budinger to the tune of $30,800.  http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/search.php?cid=N00009638&name=&employ=&state=%28all%29&zip=%28any+zip%29&submit=OK&amt=a&sort=A 

Who is William Budinger? William Budinger is listed as an active Trusee for the Aspen Institute, his time is now spent helping the Rodel Foundation pursue its education reform objectives.  What are exactly are those objectives, I wonder.  http://www.rodelfoundations.org/aspen.shtml  Foundation recipients are lucky enough to attend “week-long seminars in both China and the Middle East where Fellows will meet with regional leaders and learn about the challenges and opportunities those areas pose for the future of America.”

A Conversation with Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and Aspen Institute President Walter Isaacson,

http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.1096989/k.C19/Senator_Barack_Obama_and_Walter_Isaacson.htm

From Obama own lips speaking at the Aspen Institute, “Abortion is an issue that is very difficult to compromise on because people feel very deeply about these issues. And if you believe that abortion is murder, then it’s hard to say, “Well, I’ll admit murder in some circumstances.” You feel that you have to go all the way and fight as hard as you can.”

What is more controversial than Obama’s stance on partial birth abortions? http://www.abortionfacts.com/online_books/love_them_both/why_cant_we_love_them_both_18.asp#partial%20birth%20abortion  His wife Michelle is right in his shadow.  “In February 2004, his wife, Michelle, sent out a fundraising letter, which actually stated her concern over the rise of conservatism in the Country, and that the ‘so-called’ partial-birth abortion was a legitimate medical procedure that should be protected.” http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/77500/barack_hussein_obama_jr_defends_partialbirth.html?cat=9   And, Barack Obama said on July 17th, 2007: “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing that I’d do.” It will require that the taxpayer fund abortions and remove restrictions on abortion.  You can’t give a kid an aspirin from the school nurse without restrictions and yet, abortion will have little restrictions. 

Getting back to Isaacson -CNN, the network he headed during the Iraq War coverage, he is quoted as saying, “Walter Isaacson, who headed CNN, observes, “The people at Knight Ridder were calling the colonels and the lieutenants and the people in the CIA and finding out, you know, that the intelligence is not very good. We should’ve all been doing that.” If Issacson knew there was some questionable intelligence CNN didn’t report it or question it- Did they?

From its site, “The Aspen Institute mission is two fold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues.  http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.493947/k.7AC3/About_the_Aspen_Institute.htm

The Aspen Institute lists Harvard graduated Walter Isaacson as its current President & CEO.   http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.2253415/k.5A1D/About_Walter_Isaacson.htm Walter Isaacson, the president of the Aspen Institute, is the former managing editor of Time and chairman of CNN and the author of biographies of Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein. 

William E. Mayer is the Chairman of The Board for the Aspen Group with a pretty good resume dotted with being a Senior Partner of Park Avenue Equity Partners, to Credit Suisse, a trustee of the Columbia Group of Mutual Funds, a board member of the Acumen Fund, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Vice Chairman of the Middle East Investment Initiative. http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.612715/k.960D/William_E_Mayer.htm

Surprisingly William Mayer he has supported John McCain by making campaign contributions to him.  Oops, he had to take some back.  ANYONE KNOW WHY?

Why is the contribution to John McCain by William E. Mayer shown as being returned?  It is because he is linked to tightly with the liberal Aspen Institute and was pressured into doing so?  Did William E. Mayer violate campaign laws?  Did he over extend himself and the checks bounced?  Did McCain stamp the envelope with return to sender?

On the Board of Directors at The Aspen we find some notable names like, Henry E. Catto, Madeleine K. Albright, and Leonard A. Lauder.  What brand of Lipstick does Sarah Palin wear? Also David Gergen, Robert K. Steel of Wachovia, Roderick von Lipsey USB Financial Services, Frederick B. Whittemore Morgan Stanley, Sidney Harman of Harmon Ind., but the name that really caught my eye besides well known Henry A. Kissinger, being Chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc.,  was Prince Bandar bin Sultan-Former Saudi Ambassador to the United States. 

Prince Bandar bin Sultan in the past, has had loyalties to Bush, but not Sultan is not with out controversy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan  There were rumors that Prince Bandar bin Sultan was told of the plan to invade Iraq ahead of notifying Secretary of State Colin Powell.  Did Colin Powell’s feeling get hurt, and the reason he is now endorsing Obama and getting even with the Republican Party? 

Interestedly enough, Prince Bandar bin Sultan has a home larger that The White House, in where?  You guessed it, Aspen, Colorado, USA. Called The Halla Ranch http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan  http://www.christiesgreatestates.com   has it listed for sale.  Since 9-11, Prince Bandar bin Sultan no longer visits as often.  The Halla Ranch home has 15 bedrooms, but in his defense he has 8 children, so I can actually see that for such an honored dignitary.

McCain wants to know where Obama’s money is coming from and so do I.  We know all about William Budinger donation but “There’s $200 million of those campaign contributions – there’s no record. They’re not reported. You can report online now, $200 million, that we don’t know where the money came from. A lot of strange things going on in this campaign,” McCain said. “The American people should know where every penny came from. They know where every penny of my campaign contributions came from.”  http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2008/10/19/politics/fromtheroad/entry4531269.shtml

The Company that you keep, the words you speak, and your current and past associations sure says a lot about you Mr. Obama.  I hear on Howie Mandel’s, new game show, Deal or No Deal, “show me the money”  from contestants.  Well Mr. Obama who has no birth certificate and has 56 other citizenship questions pending for him in the Berg vs Obama, and the DNC et al pending lawsuit, SHOW ME THE MONEY.
