    Bush Warns of ‘Temptation’ to Abandon Free-Market System in Wake of Recession

    The former president, outlining his vision for a policy institute to bear his name at Southern Methodist University, calls the decision to back the $700 billion bank bailout one of the “most difficult” of his presidency. But he warns that policymakers may be taking government intervention too far in the wake of the rescue package.

    last Saturday night, the House came up with an incredibly monstrous reworking of American medicine. Do you think the Senate’s going to embrace this? MS: Well, I worry about this. It can be defeated, it can be rolled back in the Senate. But what is happening, and this is what’s got to be stopped, is the way just enough of it sneaks through to the next stage to keep it alive. I mean, what happened last Saturday is actually disgraceful. I would not have thought it possible for the United States to vote in this fashion for a bill that governmentalizes a sixth of the economy, and then for everyone to say oh, well, don’t worry, don’t worry, it’ll be stopped in the Senate. This is what I’ve said all along, that if he can get something through, if he can get anything through, then that’s all he needs, and the rest will come in time when the big government ratchet effect kicks in. So I’m very worried about this, and I think once…the idea that pressure isn’t being brought to bear on Blanche Lincoln from Arkansas, and these other essentially red state Senate Democrats, that there aren’t inducements being made to persuade them to see the light that Obama and Nancy Pelosi have brought to American health care, I think this is a very perilous time.

    1) Just talked to a very insightful Capitol Hill Watcher who doesn’t think Harry Reid has the votes in the Senate to pass anything resembling comprehensive healthcare reform. You can count out Lieberman, Landrieu, Nelson and maybe even Bayh. 2) First, of course, comes the CBO’s analysis of various proposals. Any of them that boosts the deficit or healthcare premiums are DOA. Remember, healthcare reform was supposed to expand coverage, lower premiums and bend the curve on the long-term deficit. 3) Assuming Reid can get 60 votes to proceed to the floor sometime next week, we are talking December being taken up with debate on amendments concerning the public option, abortion, taxes. As it is, Reid is reworking the Senate bill on the fly. One day it is a new version of a PO trigger, the next a hike in payroll taxes. Reconciliation? “That ship has sailed.” 5) Time does not help.  Once the Congress goes homes, members could be inundated with complains and protests, just like in August. Also, the rising unemployment rate continues to sap public confidence in the Obama agenda and Washington, in general.

    Our allies are becoming very uncertain of our commitment, and frankly, the men and women who are serving are beginning to wonder what we are going to do.” McCain said it is essential for Obama to make a decision soon. “I think that Gen. McChrystal’s recommendation is a valid one, but every day that goes by without a decision is a day that goes by without us reinforcing the men and women who are already there and puts them in greater danger. That’s not right.” McCain said the U.S. can sustain and support a massive build up in Afghanistan. “Sure, Yes. I think within a year to 18 months that we can begin to show success, but right now, without added resources over there, Gen. McChrystal says the situation is deteriorating.” McCain said there wouldn’t be a dramatic increase in the deployment of troops stationed in Yuma if a surge is ordered. “Not a lot, there would obviously be deployments but one thing about Marines, they deploy a lot anyway.”

    Totally agree. IMO, it’s because (in part) it’s far easier for them to “attack” the crazy stuff going on in the here and now…rather than having to go back to the time of the Constitutional convention to inquire as to what the intent of the framers was for putting in that specific requirement for the 1 position in all of government. That being, for the CinC.

    Besides, many of them probably don’t have a clue that, regardless of where he was actually born, even Barry has admitted he was born a dual national. And that’s no conspiracy, as he admitted such on his campaign web site for all to see.

    Dear Dolphin,

    Thanks for your positive comments as well.

    I’m glad you used the word “CRIMINAL”, as I’ve used it with a few guests and I sometimes detect they get offended that I use the word. The fact this and many other technologies are sequestered is a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

    Does this mean that every airplane crash could have been avoided. Isn’t it interesting that teleportation is there to save our soliders’ lives, since a high percentage die in route to the war zone? Then, why is it that our soldiers keep dying en route?

    I wasn’t going to mention anything, but I was analyzing the possibility of requesting an interview with Gov. Bill Richardson regarding his opinion about Roswell, and, then say “Governor, can you also tell us more about your involvement with Project Pegasus?”

    What do you think his response would be?



    P.S. I interviewed Dr. Steven Greer last week. Next, I need to coordinate a date with Bill and Kerry, who have already accepted my invitation for a show.

    Special Presidential Briefing

  24. blessedistruth Says:

    January 23, 2009

    Dear President Obama,

    Since the mid-1950s, classified projects connected to extraterrestrial matters have operated outside of constitutionally required oversight and control by the President and Congress. This constitutes a grave and ongoing threat to US national security and global security and peace.

    The implications of this subject are such that no aspect of life on Earth will be unaffected by its Disclosure. We are acutely aware that this subject is highly controversial and suffers from great social opprobrium within certain elite circles and within the mainstream media.

    Indeed, secrecy on the subject has, in part, been maintained by a carefully orchestrated psychological nexus of ridicule, fear, intimidation and disinformation that makes it difficult for any public figure to openly address the matter.

    Moreover, the ‘bubble’ of security and access restrictions that surround the Office of the President makes it very difficult for POTUS to receive accurate information and advice on the subject. The consequences of this secrecy, combined with the psychological aspects mentioned above, have ensured that none of your predecessors have been able to effectively manage this problem. This has led to an unacknowledged crisis that will be the greatest of your Presidency.

    Because of this misguided secrecy, the wondrous new sciences related to advanced energy generation, propulsion and transportation have been withheld from the people. These advances include the generation of limitless clean energy from the so-called zero point energy field and quantum vacuum flux field from the space around us, and propulsion that has been termed (incorrectly) anti-gravity. The field of electromagnetic energy that is teeming all around us and which is embedded within the fabric of space/time can easily run all of the energy needs of the Earth – without pollution, oil, gas, coal, centralized utilities or nuclear power.

    The disclosure of these sciences and their wise application during your first term as President is the most pressing matter before you. These sciences will create a true new energy economy allowing mankind to solve our most pressing problems of global warming, poverty and resource depletion.

    The constellation of problems that include global warming, biosphere degradation, air pollution, energy security, Mid-East policy, a collapsing geo-economic order, growing disparity between the poor and rich of the world, over-population and human sustainability on Earth, to name but a few, are all interconnected and directly affected by the secrecy surrounding this subject. The solutions lie not in old thinking and technologies but in a new consciousness applying new sciences. These sciences were born in the late 19th and 20th centuries but were abandoned and suppressed due to the lust for power, greed and out of fear of unsettling the status quo.

    It is time for a new Emancipation Declaration – one that frees all of humanity from the shackles of economic slavery that results from secret centralized power, corruption and global economic hegemony. The world will not find justice and peace so long as half of the world’s population lives in poverty while the other half cannibalizes the Earth to maintain its standard of living. This dire situation can and must be transformed into a world of abundance, clean and plentiful energy and genuine sustainability. On this foundation, with these new sciences, technologies and a new consciousness, we can move forward as a people, united and in peace. Then and only then will we be welcome amongst the other civilizations of the cosmos.

    That we are not alone in the universe is now a scientific given. That we have been visited already by advanced civilizations – whose interests here are likely ancient – is controversial. However, in my discussions with European, Vatican, Canadian and other leaders around the world, a growing consensus exists that we have been visited and the time for disclosing this information is long past due. More importantly, an appropriate diplomatic initiative is needed to communicate with these extraterrestrial visitors within a framework of universal peace, free from the past dominance of militarism and paranoia.

    Insofar as upwards of 80% of the American people think that ‘UFOs’ are real, and that some aspect of the government is lying to them about it, continued secrecy redounds only to the benefit of the precious few who profit from such secrecy. This secrecy undermines the credibility of the US and other governments, and allows the cancer of unchecked covert power – forewarned by President Eisenhower in his last address to the nation – to metastasize throughout the world. It now threatens the very life of Earth.

    Moreover, there exists a secret, ‘unacknowledged’ operation that has used very advanced electromagnetic weapon systems to track, target, and on occasion, but with increasing accuracy, down extraterrestrial vehicles. This reckless behavior constitutes an existential threat to all of mankind and must be reined in immediately.

    The so-called MJ-12 or Majestic group that controls this subject operates without the consent of the people, or the oversight of the President and Congress. It functions as a transnational government unto itself, answerable to no one. All checks and balances have been obliterated.

    While as a governing entity it stands outside of the rule of law, its influence reaches into many governments, corporations, agencies, media and financial interests. Its corrupting influence is profound and, indeed, it has operated as a very powerful and embedded global RICO whose power to date remains unchecked.

    Upwards of $100 billion of USG funds go annually into this operation, also known as the ‘black budget’ of the United States – enough to provide universal health care to every man, woman and child in America.

    When I first briefed Director of Central Intelligence James Woolsey on this matter in December of 1993, only a third of this governing group was in favor of what we were recommending: Disclosure of the fact that we are not alone in the universe and the careful release of advanced energy generation systems that would replace oil, gas, coal and nuclear power. Sources now inform me that upwards of two-thirds of this group now support such an initiative.

    Interests in Europe, the Vatican and Asia, especially France and China, are urging Disclosure. If the United States does not move forward, these other interests will, and America will be left behind and become increasingly irrelevant in the world. This cannot be allowed to happen.

    The European and Asian arenas will move with or without US involvement at some point in the very near future, as well they should.

    Six decades of secrecy is enough.

    We are also morally obliged to warn you of an existing highly secretive plan to use advanced technologies to hoax an ‘alien attack’ on Earth.

    There exists within the direct control of this Majestic group assets capable of launching such a false flag operation and virtually every person on Earth, as well as most leaders, would be deceived by it.

    Components of this operation have been tested on the public over the past 50 years and include, but are not limited to:

    Alien Reproduction Vehicles (ARVs) – these are advanced anti-gravity aircraft that have been fully operational since at least the late 1950s to early 1960s. Many so-called UFO reports by civilians and military personnel are of such ARVs. They constitute an unacknowledged or ‘black’ Air Force and these ARVs are capable of extraordinary speed, maneuverability and lift/hover. By 2009, these technologies had gone through many generations of refinement and, if deployed, could easily hoax or simulate an Extraterrestrial Vehicle (ETV). (Note that a UFO is a nonspecific term and could be either an ARV or an ETV.)

    Programmed Life Forms (PLFs) – these are well-crafted alien-appearing creatures that, while completely manmade, often deceive unknowing people as ‘aliens’. The stagecraft, genetics and other sciences associated with these creatures are beyond the scope of this brief, but are very well developed. I have personally been briefed by multiple independent corroborating sources regarding the development and deployment of PLFs. These creatures, used in conjunction with ARVs, have convincingly launched the pop culture fervor over ‘alien abductions’. Victims of such paramilitary human-controlled abductions genuinely believe that they have been abducted by ‘aliens’ and often have physical stigmata and ‘implants’ to prove it. These implants are also manmade and we have information about the laboratory and corporation making these items. (See attached documents)

    Chemical, optical and electromagnetic systems to assist with creating an alteration in awareness are components of the ‘stagecraft’ used to hoax an ‘alien’ event.

    The vast majority of information in the public domain on the UFO subject is, therefore, carefully orchestrated disinformation designed to prepare the populace, as well as our leaders, for a non-existent ‘alien threat’.

    The psychological warfare implications of this were described in the 1950s in CIA documents and are further elucidated by other documents and testimony. No less a figure than Wernher Von Braun warned of this cosmic deception.

    The objective of such a false flag operation is the creation of an enemy in space that would unite the world behind a global military power against such an ‘alien threat’. President Reagan and other leaders have been targeted with such disinformation, which is designed to secure their silence or cooperation with the agenda of secrecy and space weaponization. The President needs to be careful to avoid being similarly deceived.

    After very careful review of all data and documents and after interviewing hundreds of top secret witnesses, we have concluded that the actual extraterrestrial presence is distinctly non-hostile. In light of the reckless and aggressive nature of many of our covert military actions and the extraordinarily advanced technologies that permit interstellar travel by these extraterrestrial civilizations, if they were hostile, human civilization would have been dealt with decisively at the dawn of the nuclear era.

    These visitors, however, appear to be very concerned with unchecked human hostility, war-making and weapons of mass destruction, combined with our early potential for space travel. The tendency for people to engage in anthropocentric projection leads many to assume a threat where none exists. It is more likely that humanity may be seen as a threat to the cosmic order, insofar as we have failed to restrain the expansion of weapons of mass destruction while attempting to push farther and farther into space. Moreover, we have failed to initiate an enlightened and peaceful diplomatic mission to these extraterrestrial visitors. This needs to change immediately.

    Disclosure of this subject must be very carefully planned and positioned as a hopeful and elevating moment in human history. A poorly positioned Disclosure that demonizes these visitors or frightens the public may prove more harmful than secrecy.

    As you may know, my uncle was the senior project engineer who worked on the Lunar Module that took Neil Armstrong to the moon. The reason we were not welcome in space then is because the passport to traverse the universe is a stable peaceful world civilization that will go into space united and in peace.

    In this regard, world peace and universal peace are two sides of the same coin. Once we vow to live peacefully on Earth and go into space only in peace, we will be welcome with open arms. Until then, a type of cosmic quarantine exists – rightly – around the Earth.

    Unfortunately, the media and movie industry are highly penetrated by interests loyal to the Majestic group, which has used the media to, in turns, ridicule the subject and present terrifying images of ‘alien invasion’. In short, the populace is almost thoroughly brainwashed on the matter, and this presents a further hurdle that must be carefully taken into account when planning Disclosure.

    Nevertheless, the status quo can no longer hold and fundamental change is urgently needed. To this end, we urge the President to undertake a number of initiatives as soon as possible.

    We recommend that the President:

    Appoint a Special Presidential Task Force to investigate this matter, identify covert facilities and assets (see attached summary) and reassert Executive control over these projects;

    Identify and immediately stand-down operations that are covertly targeting Extraterrestrial Vehicles, weaponizing space and engaging in rogue disinformation projects;

    Develop response plans to minimize the risks related to potential false flag operations that intend to hoax a hostile ‘alien’ presence, including preparations with military, intelligence and international institutions;

    Form The Council on Interplanetary Relations to coordinate a peaceful, forward looking and non-militarized response to the extraterrestrial presence. The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (see has an 18 year ongoing project to establish such contact and can assist with this process. CSETI, working with other governments and world figures, will form such a Council if the US government decides not to do so within the next 12 months;

    Immediately fund the study, development and careful release of those new energy technologies that can quickly replace fossil fuels and nuclear power. (See Note that these technologies, since they acquire energy from the zero point energy field of space/time, will allow for the retirement of the electric energy grid. We are in possession of documents and information regarding key facilities and assets connected to these technologies (see attached documents).

    We recommend that the propulsion and transportation aspects of these technologies (electro-magneto-gravitic systems) be released at a later time when the world security situation has improved;

    Establish high-ranking liaisons with Congress, the UN and other governments to coordinate these projects and the release of the new energy technologies;

    The National Security Council needs to form a section specifically addressing the international, interplanetary and macroeconomic implications of this disclosure and urgently prepare for the release of these technologies;

    The Orion Project ( has identified key scientists to assist with the development of these new energy technologies. They have agreed to work with us, but are being prevented from doing so, one by a compartmented operation (TS SCI) to which he is assigned. We request an action by the Office of the President to specifically permit them to work with us with the full support and protection of the President. We cannot over-emphasize how important it is that these people be assigned to this critical task: In less than 1 year, we would have new energy generators developed to run America free from oil, gas, coal or nuclear power.

    President Obama, we stand ready to assist you and your Administration with these and other tasks, and pledge to you our full support. I will personally fulfill any request from your office with the utmost integrity, discretion and confidentiality.

    Please be assured of my heartfelt prayers on your behalf for your guidance, protection and success as you begin your historic role as President of the United States.

    Well, Edward had simply disappeared and I wanted to know what had happened.

    In her thickly accented English, she said, “Well, you know, Edward was supposed to be heartbroken. But you know one day I saw Edward fooling around. So maybe he flew off with his new love.”

    Well, this was the most I’d ever gotten out of said lady. At one point she volunteered that she hadn’t been born in these United States.

    Instead of saying, “No kidding!” I asked, “Where were you born?”

    “Iran,” she politely answered.

    So we got to talking about Iran and she told me she still has relatives over there.

    And I wanted to know what she’d heard from them.

    She told me, “You know, the parents, they go to the prison to look for their children. You know what they are told?! Come back in two months.”

    I said, “But change is coming to Iran, eventually. Don’t you think so?”

    She took her time answering. Finally in her thickly accented English, she said very slowly, “Not quick.”

    Enough Afghan debate

    David Broder

    In all this dithering, it’s easy to forget a few fundamentals. Why are we in Afghanistan? Not because of its own claim on us but because the Taliban rulers welcomed the al-Qaeda plotters who hatched the destruction of Sept. 11, 2001. The Taliban also oppressed its own people, especially women, but we sent troops because Afghanistan was the hide-out for the terrorists who attacked our country.

    We knew that governing Afghanistan would never be easy. It had resisted outside forces through the ages, and its geography, tribal structure, absence of a democratic tradition and poverty all argued that once we went in, it would be hard to get out.

    But George W. Bush said — and Obama seemed to agree — that withdrawal was not an option.

    That imperative is reinforced by the presence of Pakistan, a shaky nuclear-armed power across a porous mountain border. If the Taliban comes back in Afghanistan, the al-Qaeda cells already in Pakistan will operate even more freely — and nuclear weapons could fall into the most dangerous hands.

    Given all of this, I don’t see how Obama can refuse to back up the commander he picked and the strategy he is recommending. It may not work if the country truly is ungovernable. But I think we have to gamble that security will bring political progress — as it has done in Iraq.

    Obama did not believe that could happen there. But given what he inherited, and given what he has done so far, I think he has no choice but to play out that hand. If we can’t afford to lose, then play to win.

    (How can we expect our Pakistani allies to risk all if our own will to win comes up short?)

    I thought only right-wing Neanderthals opposed Medicare and Medicaid:

    Here’s a report from Paul Krugman’s newspaper on a visit by the Dutch health minister to the US:

    His first official visit to the United States as health minister came in 2007, and he came with the usual European preconceptions that this country had a wide open and fiercely competitive health insurance market with a myriad choices.

    “And what struck me,” he said, “is actually the lack of competition you have.”

    Mr. Klink pointed out that nearly 40 percent of the nation’s population gets care from Medicare, Medicaid and Veterans Affairs, all of which have significant restrictions on the choices available to patients.

    “We don’t have these kind of public insurance groups in our country,” he said.

    And even among those in the United States who get insurance from their work, he went on, “it’s the employer who is making the choices of the health plans from which you can choose.” 

    Yes, some conservatives oppose any form of universal health care. 

    But at this point would any conservatives/pragmatic libertarians prefer the US health care system we will have 5 years from now over the Dutch, Swiss, or especially Singaporean universal health care plans? 

    And our “universal” plan will still have 20 million uninsured. 

    So for how much longer can progressives claim that universal coverage is the issue separating the left and right?

    (Exactly! Let’s start over! No more government-run health care! Lieberman is right, the public “option” is unnecessary.)

    (And the public “option” isn’t about more competition and more choices for Americans. Private insurers won’t be able to compete with the government. The public “option” IS about the opposite of limited government, and our founding fathers and mothers warned of government tyranny. Tyranny was a concept they were all too familiar with.)

    The military claims to have captured notorious bastions in some of the most forbidding terrain in the country with lightning speed.

    Members of the Mehsud tribe, which dominates the TTP, say the Taliban no longer enjoy support.

    ‘May be some tribesmen helped them but now, we the Mehsud tribe don’t side with the Taliban,’ said tribesman Haji Khan Mohammad Mehsud, 60.

    Military intelligence and tribal elders say the Taliban are escaping into the mountains of neighbouring North Waziristan and Orakzai.

    ‘This is something not new to the war on terror. America marched into Iraq, into Afghanistan. There was little resistance, thinking they’d achieved their objective. Then the war began,’ said defence analyst Ayesha Siddiqa.

    “In other words (& in short)…WKA did NOT find him a Natural Born Citizen (& you know it).”

    You’re acting like I’m trying to hide that point. I said, back in post #92, that, “technically, Wong Kim Ark didn’t rule on whether Ark was a natural born citizen, only on whether he was a citizen; everything else in the opinion is dicta.”

    There is, I believe, no single case in any American court (until this week’s Indiana case) that ever directly litigated whether someone was a Natural Born Citizen for purposes of being eligible to the presidency. But the fact remains that Wong Kim Ark has a long discussion of this issue, and states (in dicta, of course) that anyone born on U.S. soil is a a natural born citizen, even if both their parents are aliens.

    For the Indiana court to accept the dicta over the actual holding was very bold of them. Their “holding”, IMO, will be challenged in the future.

    Collins presses Fort Hood investigation despite Obama’s request to wait

    Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn., and Ranking Member Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Saturday that their committee would begin holding hearings Thursday.

    “We very much agree with President Obama’s sentiments that the full story behind the murderous act at Fort Hood must be told,” the senators said in a statement.

    “We appreciate that he recognizes Congress’ constitutional mandate to conduct oversight into tragic events such as these and we want to reiterate that our committee will conduct a responsible, apolitical inquiry.”

    Hoekstra confirmed this week that government officials knew of about 10 to 20 e-mails between Hasan and the radical imam, beginning in December 2008.

    Bloomberg reports that Sen. Joe Lieberman’s “independence (is hindering) Democrats’ health-care end game.”

    “While Lieberman still aligns himself with the Democratic caucus, his threat to block health legislation ‘as a matter of conscience’ shows a growing willingness and confidence to stand on his own, analysts say. …

    Lieberman can influence the outcome because no Republicans have offered to support the overhaul measure from Reid, a Nevada Democrat.

    Lacking Republican allies, Democrats need all 60 members of their caucus, which includes Lieberman and Independent Bernard Sanders of Vermont, to bring the measure up for a final vote.” 


    On the government-run public option plan, he told Bloomberg: “‘I have no other choice,’ Lieberman said in an interview with Bloomberg News. ‘I have to use the right I have as a senator to stop something I think will be terrible. I really want to vote for health-care reform.'”


    Some say Lieberman’s stance “reflects his ties to home-state insurers, say critics who protested outside his Washington office Nov. 10”  (Gaouette and Salant, 11/16).

    Roll Call profiles Majority Leader Harry Reid (“The Ultimate Closer”) who has “emerged as the central player in President Barack Obama’s push to enact health care reform this year” and has 16 blurbs on the major players in health care reform (Drucker, 11/16).

    In a separate story, Roll Call profiles Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe, whose “support will be crucial in crafting a more moderate compromise bill that ultimately is expected to emerge in the coming weeks.”

    She is keeping both sides guessing at what her final decision on reform will be (Murray, 11/16).

    In Virginia, Sens. Mark Warner and Jim Webb are making their voices, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports. “Virginia’s two senators are expressing concerns about costs — in the expense of individuals’ premiums and the rising federal deficit.

    While both are open to the idea of a public option, it’s not their priority” (Meola, 11/15).

    Ezra Klein on HCR

    The more damning conclusion from the CMS report is that the House bill has little else to control costs, and that’s largely accurate.

    This report shouldn’t lead reformers to abandon efforts to trim Medicare, but it should convince them that the bill can do more on the cost control front.

    The Senate now has the advantage of reading this report, questioning CMS about its methodologies and tweaking its bill to ensure a better verdict.

    But it’s already part of the way there.

    The Senate Finance Committee’s bill has two cost-control measures the House simple doesn’t:

    Super MedPac and the excise tax.

    Alongside that, it has a much more aggressive package of delivery-system reforms.

    But more on all that later.

    (Ezra Klein is a realist voice on the left, most of the time. How anyone could not see a difference between universal coverage with or without government-run HC is beyond me.)

    (I’m all for universal coverage, but the thought of more government-run HC scares the hell out of me! More private sector, less public sector. Lieberman is right.)

    (In fact blame the govt for abandoning its oversight of private sector. But replacing private with public will fundamentally change who we are as a nation — a much less prosperous nation.)

    Hugh Hewitt’s take:

    Obamacare fails every test of genuine “reform.” 

    It is being pushed solely for political reasons, primarily to expand the size and reach of government and with it the public sector employee unions that power so much of the Democratic Party machinery.

    McCain says Chrysler unlikely to survive

    The UAW insists it made tough sacrifices to save the automakers.

    As part of the deal, the UAW agreed at GM and Chrysler to $7 an hour in givebacks in wages and benefits, gave up the right to strike through 2015 and swapped billions in health care payments owed to retirees in exchange for equity in the automakers. The UAW has also seen tens of thousands of members accept buyouts or early retirements.

    “We see the automotive industry, and my heart goes out to the citizens of Detroit, really in the tank, and yet we have manufacturing plants all over the South, which are not bound by some of the labor rules and contracts that make them non-competitive,” McCain said.

    (When are the majority of voters in these states going to realize that unions are outsourcing jobs to right to work states?)

    Palestinians Weigh U.N. Statehood Declaration

    Officials, Impatient With Washington, Consider Appealing to U.N. to Recognize a State in West Bank, Gaza Strip.'s_Most_Popular

    RAMALLAH, West Bank —

    Palestinian officials said Sunday they are considering a unilateral appeal for United Nations Security Council recognition of a state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, separate from Israel.

    The move is highly unlikely to progress in the international body, but it represents the latest sign of Palestinian frustration at the halting progress of U.S.-brokered peace efforts.

    “The bilateral approach is reaching a deadlock, which is encouraging [the Palestinians] to go for any possible alternative,” said Ghassan Khatib, a Palestinian government spokesman.

    Impatience with the Obama administration’s efforts at restarting Israel-Palestinian talks has bubbled over among Palestinians, who accuse the U.S. of backtracking on its earlier insistence of a total freeze of Jewish construction in West Bank settlements.

    Palestinian officials have demanded a total freeze before meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for new talks.

    (I’ve often wondered why Palestinians hadn’t done this before. Where exactly would the international border be drawn? Any move that is going to endanger Jews will be opposed with force. In fact, that is why Israel came into existence in 1948. Palestinian Jews were in grave danger.)
