You don't suppose this explains F & F do you? Have the Obama campaign workers fiddled with the website donor info again yet?

In that continuing 'Duke and Duke' investment scheme, known as Newsweek they rate DEA informants against the Sinaloa cartel's rivals, as t he reason for their rise to prominence, as much as the Bulger formula applies, I don't think that is.

So a fugitive, like Al Samarrai, a middleman
like Auchi, nothing to see here.

I think it's shameful that someone with known ties to drugs, illegal campaign contributions, and political violence in Mexico would have money donated to him by these Cardonas characters.

You know if you think about those Super Bowl commercials through the template that Big Business has been told we have shifted to a Corporatist economic system and BO is the leader. And if he's not reelected their Five Year Plans, I mean Business Plans, are in jeopardy. And thus the bonuses they are counting on.

It sure does fit.

July 2008:

"As President, I will pursue a tough, smart and principled national security strategy -- one that recognizes that we have interests not just in Baghdad, but in Kandahar and Karachi, in Tokyo and London, in Beijing and Berlin," he continued. "I will focus this strategy on five goals essential to making America safer: ending the war in Iraq responsibly; finishing the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban; securing all nuclear weapons and materials from terrorists and rogue states; achieving true energy security; and rebuilding our alliances to meet the challenges of the 21st century."

Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis tells us that the Afghan War has evolved into a failure of epic proportions.

Since we're going off topic, the Times has created a kerfuffle with a silly article by Adam Liptak about how the U.S. Constitution (being more than 100 years old and all) is no longer in vogue as a model for other countries' constitutions. In describing how relatively few rights it guarantees (no right to affirmative action!), he seems blissfully unaware that its point was to enumerate (and thereby limit) the powers of the government. Which is why, of course, we are still relatively free compared to lots of other countries that have more "rights."

Speaking of our military in Afghanistan...If anyone is in the DC area this weekend -

WIA (wounded in action ministry) is having a "Come and Go" Baby Shower for the young widow of a service member who recently died after being shot in Afghanistan -

A new bookmark for everyone - The Washington Free Beacon - Combat Journalism (man, do I love the sound of that!). Editor, Matthew Continetti explains:

What would happen, though, if a website covered the left in the same way that the left covers the right? What picture of the world would one have in mind if the morning paper read like the New York Times—but with the subjects of the stories and the assumptions built into the text changed to reflect a conservative, not liberal, worldview? What would happen if the media wolf pack suddenly had to worry about an aerial hunting operation?

You are about to find out. The Washington Free Beacon is here to enter the arena of combat journalism. Our talented staff will add to the chorus of enterprising conservative reporters, publishing original stories, seeking out scoops, and focusing on the myriad connections between money and power in the progressive movement and Obama’s Washington. Our research and war room divisions will supplement that reporting with context, additional materials, and breaking video. At the Beacon, you will find the other half of the story, the half that the elite media have taken such pains to ignore: the inside deals, cronyism cloaked in the public interest, and far-out nostrums of contemporary progressivism and the Democratic Party. At the Beacon, all friends of freedom will find an alternative to the hackneyed spin, routine misstatements, paranoid hyperbole, and insipid folderol of Democratic officials and the liberal gasbags on MSNBC and talk radio. At the Beacon, we follow only one commandment: Do unto them.

Janet, I think you will like this news site.

For me, the less attention the country pays to the NYT, the better for the country.

I would like to see conservatives take over more media outlets, like NBC, but for all the supposed money in the hands of conservatives, it doesn't happen. Why?

Please! we wonder about 'Bam taking $200K from nephews of a Mexican crook and drug dealer? "Bam/Holder walked 2000 weapons to Mexican gangsters so people would be killed in Mexico and mexican enclaves in the USA, to justify more gun laws restricting law abiding US gun dealers. And we expect 'Bam to vette money bundlers? Please. 'Bam and his crew are lawless: they justify anything and everything as being for "the cause". Anyways, 'Bam needs the money. He's falling way short of donors to his campaign because the presidency brings scrutiny. so he's pushing the more lax superPAC money now. That will be a huge slush fund come August.

Well, another "community organizer" president just went down:

Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed resigns amid unrest

Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed has resigned after weeks of demonstrations and a mutiny by some police officers.

Why do I call him a "community organizer" you ask?

Mr Nasheed was elected on a wave of optimism in 2008, in the islands' first multi-party election.

Mr Nasheed, a former human rights campaigner...

But apparently, he turned a lot of the population off pretty quickly...

Since then, correspondents say, the country has been gripped by constitutional gridlock - parties opposed to the president have dominated parliament since general elections the following year.

And the Beeb is obviously sorry to see him go...

A one-time political prisoner, Mr Nasheed became a vocal figure in office on issues relating to the environment and climate change.

But he has faced constant opposition - from those loyal to former President Gayoom and from religious conservatives who accuse him of being anti-Islamic, says the BBC's South Asia analyst Jill McGivering.

See, he was one of the "good guys," and those reactionaries took him out.

Observation 1 -- There is no evidence that the brothers giving money to Obama's campaign are tied up with the drug lord. If the brothers simply went out and bought ads with their own cash, the New York Times (or Fox news) would not ask the brothers where the money came from. As long as the brothers are citizens, I do not see the issue with the donation of cash. Of course, should the Obama administration fail to persue the drug lord, or should the President pardon the guy, there is a story.

Observation 2 -- Like the Combat Journalism site. Frankly, most stories are broken because somebody has an axe to grind. Hope they do well and the Koch Brothers are generous.

Observation 3 -- Most other democracies do not emulate our system, and it's fair to point that ours in an NYT article. But then, our system works better in a lot of ways and, while not immune from insane anti-democratic bureaucracises, is at least no worse than most modern democracies in that respect. Plus, the rights enshrined in the constitution tend to be more for the individual, than for than the group, which is a better protection against tyranny.

I'm sure the Obama campaign officials saw nothing wrong with taking money from "Pepe" (wasn't that the name of the pickup truck owned by the druglord in "Romancing the Stone" ?).

Well, it looks like the Greeks are about to get the old "Don't let the door hit you in the assets" treatment:

Greece exit would not end euro, says EU commissioner

"What's a man overboard?" Mrs Kroes told the Dutch newspaper Volkskrant. "It's always said that if you let one country get out, or ask it to get out, then the whole structure collapses. But that's simply not true.

"The Greeks have to realise that we Dutch and we Germans can only sell emergency Greek aid to our taxpayers if there's evidence of good will."

And there is always the eternal optomist to quote:

A similar message was delivered with a more optimistic spin by Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the "eurogroup" of eurozone finance ministers, who said he had no doubt that Greece would remain within the eurozone, provided that it met its obligations to other members.

"The euro will outlive us all," he said.

I think that final statement goes under the heading of "famous last words."

NK

Ugh-- the point of the story is that the evidence indicates is that Pepe is laundering money through his nephews to buy a pardon of Federal and Iowa crimes. I'd say 'Bam giving back the $200K in order to make this story go away substantiates the evidence. Does anyone on the Left even care about facts?

Sue

I do not see the issue with the donation of cash

Someone besides us saw the issue because they returned the money.

Ever since I studied constitutional law I have been convinced that it is necessarily unique to this country, for reasons having to do with our pre-revolutionary history. I think it would be nearly impossible even to attempt it, for example, in any place with no history of English common law.

Clarice

I think so, too, but I think Greece's leaving it will not sink the Euro.

If Greece leaves, the drachma will be pegged by the market--much lower than it now is--and that may attract tourists and eventually buyers and investors/
If Greece leaves, it may encourage other debtor nations to follow suit. And I don't think that's a bad thing.

Italian commerce is just about completely under the radar anyway. Spain can sing and dance on its own pesos, not German labor, etc. etc. etc.

we're in the best of hands!

If you recall, there was a huge stink about Obama's campaign funding in the last election. $750 million, all of it privately raised with no FEC oversight.

In fact, the FEC said it had no authority to investigate contributions form among others, M Mouse (many), E Fudd, J Stalin, etc....

They may or may not have declined donations from A. Hilter.

A friend told me the Italians recently raided hotels and restaurants in fancy resort areas, had forensic accountants examine the receipts and books and compared them with receipts reported to the govt on the same days one year earlier--they found out (surprise) that the receipts reported were 25% of what current tallies showed these outfits took in a year later.

Ranger-- you are correct -- Hello Complete Greek default (they can't even carry government 'services' on their revenue, much less the debt service) Hello Drachma, good bye Euro, and we are down to the PIIS. Greece will devalue the Drachma to about 100/1 Euro/Drachma, there will be turmoil, but it will also lead to a tourism and agriculture boom that will lead to real economic growth which is at the root of all of the PIIGS problems. Point is, when Spain, Portugal, Ireland and even Italy see what Greece is doing why do they stay in the EuroZone? Why do they stay in? Well German and French bankers love the interest they make off of the PIIGS sovereign bonds. Greek socialist politician stay in because selling these bonds keeps them and their government worker supporters employed. The people will figure this out soon enough. There will be a EuroZone for Germany, Holland, France, Austria-- that's about it.

It's politically embarassing, and it makes the Prez look bad, if he can't catch the drug lord. I understand the appearences part of things. These guys would have been smarter to give the money to a SuperPac.

My own, quirky I'm sure, opinion is that money is free speech, and everyone has a right to engage in it in this country. Persuading the 1%, after all, is part of governing.

Ranger

I would also say that it is important to remember that a large number of the people who designed the American Constitutional system were decendants of people who were trying to escape a democratic system that was in many ways a tyranny of the masses (at least the voting masses). They were just as affraid of the power of Parliament as they were the power of the King.

Most other democracies do not emulate our system, and it's fair to point that ours in an NYT article.

I wasn't objecting to that, just to the "analysis" that misses the elephant in the room. Ranking constitutions by how many rights they enumerate is idiotic when, for example, our 9th Amendment says: "The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

MarkO, I always hesitate to bring up the NYT, but sometimes it's a good window into how the elites think about things.

Hmmmm... The BBC is flashing that all of the Gulf States, including SA are closing thier embasies and recalling their entire diplomatic staffs. No details or confirmation, but that would seem a rather significant development. It seems that the Russians may have overplayed their hand here:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called for a solution to the crisis in Syria based on initiatives put forward by the Arab League.

Syria crisis: Gulf Arab states expel Syrian ambassadors

Gulf Arab states say they are expelling Syrian ambassadors in their countries and recalling their envoys from Syria.

The Gulf Cooperation Council said Syria had rejected Arab attempts to solve the crisis and end 11 months of bloodshed.

Pretty stiff stuff at the diplomatic level. It would be hard for the GCC countries to back down from this as long as Assad is in power.

The GCC is calling for all other Arab countries to do the same. Looks like this is turning into a real proxy fight between the GCC and Iran. Turkey seems to be taking this as an opportunity to build a stronger relationship with the Gulf States as well, backing them against Assad and Iran's interests.

From the letter from Attorney Mark Hatfield to Georgia

Secretary of State Brian P. Kemp, February 7, 2012.

“Dear Secretary Kemp:

As you are aware, Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi issued a “Decision” in the above-referenced matters on this past Friday, February 3, 2012, holding Defendant Barack Obama eligible as a candidate for the presidential primary election. Because you are now charged, pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 21-2-5(c), with making a final determination of Defendant Obama’s eligibility to appear on the ballot in Georgia, I am writing to respectfully point out several significant flaws in Judge Malihi’s findings and conclusions.

Initially, I would note that although Judge Malihi ordered my clients’ cases severed, as a unit, from the cases of Plaintiffs Welden; Farrar; Lax; Judy; Malaren; and Roth, and although Judge Malihi conducted a separate hearing as to my clients’ cases as requested, he nevertheless erroneously issued a single “Decision” applicable to all of the Plaintiffs’ cases, despite the fact that the evidence; testimony; and legal argument advanced by my clients differed from that offered by the other Plaintiffs."

I will not wreck this thread, I promise. I have only one question. Should the judge have issued separate decisions? Is he required to do so after severing the trials?
