« Obama A Miserable Failure | Main | Stimulus Details »

February 11, 2009





That is so cool. I guessed what the code would be and it worked.

hit and run


The irony is I don't even see strikeouts on this here BlackBerry.

Little consolation that is to the my victims, unfortunately.

As is my apology. But I offer it just the same.


I'm a victim of Hit. I like that little fantasy....


Somebody please make it stop, another evil from the folks at six apart.

Hit and run, are you able to apply this line striking to the Porkulous Bill? :-))


Byron York has info and insight into the census issue. LUN

Warning: a grim forecast


I can't believe it will look good for Obama in 12 if the welfare role has doubled during his 4yr. term

I thought that was the point?


Jane- I'm listening to your FWDAJ now. I'm loving the way you are hitting the fact the Dems have had Congress for the past 2 years, and worked on No Child Left Behind, then slapped Bush with it.

(the only error I've heard which is so not a big deal, is it was WaPo(!) aksing about ARod)

hit and run

Ahhhh, http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=ZTc4NjE4ZTg2OTYyZTMzOTUxNTJkYmYxZGUwMzM5Zjk=>who's laughing now?

Government Efficiency

The first 677 pages of the 1,434-page conference version of the stimulus bill consist of text that has been crossed out.


Tis grim indeed, and what I've been feeling for the past few weeks. Republicans in congress are effectively neutered and Obama is insuring they will have no voice.

Yesterday, Rush opened with a monologue on the Dem tactics power grab saying "Just you wait, when Republicans get back in power we will use the same tactics that you are putting in place against you. It will be payback time".

I was yelling at the radio "It's not going to happen Rush, Obama is Soros' puppet and the machinations he is putting in place will make sure Republicans will never be in the majority.

Soros is successfully buying the election of SoS's in red states (nine so far since 2006) see LUN. How many more by 2012??

The SoS makes sure the dem votes are counted, no matter how fraudulent, and that likely Rep votes are discounted. And the mega $$$ for ACORN in the stimulus bill will make sure there are plenty of fraudulent votes to count.

And now with the Census being run from the WH, the demographics are going to change. Manipulations of the count will have red states losing ELECTORAL votes and Blue states gaining for the 2012 election.

I just don’t see Reps getting the majority back

That clip Rush played of Rep.Kanjorski divulging the Paulsen/Bernanke info of $550 billion money market selloff in less than two hours back in September was chilling! Manufactured crisis??
Rush did hint that he is suspects Soros and friends manipulated the crisis but not quite how they did it.


Not surprising that he pulls a Smatheresque strategy, in speaking to the AD News, which
the Obama bots and the Sarah haters buy without blinking an eye


Oops, here's the Kanjorski clip Rush played:

LiveLeak has caught a scary moment of previously undisclosed insight by Paul Kanjorski where he reveals some facts that have not been captured by the media previously. At 2 minutes and 20 seconds in the video below, Democratic Representative Kanjorski explains how the Federal Reserve told Congress members about a "tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the United States, to the tune of $550 billion dollars." According to Kanjorski, this electronic transfer occurred over the period of an hour or two. And it gets worse. Kanjorski paraphrases the following disclosure by Bernanke and Paulson:

On Thursday (Sept 18), at 11am the Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the U.S., to the tune of $550 billion was being drawn out in the matter of an hour or two. The Treasury opened up its window to help and pumped a $105 billion in the system and quickly realized that they could not stem the tide. We were having an electronic run on the banks. They decided to close the operation, close down the money accounts and announce a guarantee of $250,000 per account so there wouldn't be further panic out there.

If they had not done that, their estimation is that by 2pm that afternoon, $5.5 trillion would have been drawn out of the money market system of the U.S., would have collapsed the entire economy of the U.S., and within 24 hours the world economy would have collapsed. It would have been the end of our economic system and our political system as we know it.


Via Insty, check out LUN and see just what got stimulated according to the CBO.

Warning: take your anti-nausea meds...

So Hit, you were just paying homage to our new Overlords, right?

Maybe strikeouts are the new black.

Or is the new black a strikeout?


SWarren, That link explains things better than any I saw during our recent election.

We has sat here and allowed our country to be completely taken over by Soros and his communist friends.

Our domestic Marxists apparently have come to appreciate that as Joseph Stalin, the mass murdering enforcer of Marxism, once intoned, "The people who cast votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

The passage of the Stimulus bill should prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt. We are told millions called against it and switchboards were jammed, but apparently lawmakers who voted for it have all been promised life long tenure in their seats or something.


Grim, SWarren. I need more tinfoil.


Warren, I want to be positive, and you're really harshing my mellow, seriously. Yes,
I know personally how screwed up the operation of the Secretary of State's office can be, with the stupid caveats Crist conceded too, under pressure. Brunner secured the election in Ohio, and there were
many other examples. Net population is still going down in the Blue States, because
of the regulatory and tax pressures, unfortunately, they migrate to the red states, and contaminate them with their influence.


Wow, hit! Even I missed my maiden voyage! You'd think I'd have recognized my own title, at the very least. Alas, plus ca change, plus c'est deja vu.... I took your good advice immediately and wrote up the Geithner review -- using the very excerpt that RichatUF so kindly provided here. What would I do without you guys! Thanks so much.

Brava. Excellent piece. You and Clarice are starting an army of Esther's.


Superb, JMH. I am grateful for your work and also grateful to Insty for ensuring more people see it.

hit and run

Well, good. Who knows where that will lead?

Saw this on http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=NjUyMmRiMDAxYmJiMWM0YmQ1Y2UyM2Y1ZjI4NTdjN2I=>the Corner from Nicole Gelinas, in which she also links to http://www.city-journal.org/2009/eon0211ng.html>this piece on City Journal...

Rick: Looks like maybe I'll be putting the poesy off a little longer :-)

Thanks to all for the kind comments!

Sheesh! Didn't realize Typepad was sending people to my #(*#@$& profile from the LUN again, instead of Quasiblog. They've fixed the screen name glitch, but unless I've actually logged out of my blog account, they just ignore the URL I type in here. At least that's theory I'm testing now.


When Sarah sells the Governor's Private Jet the Media view it as a gimmick.

When Bank CEO's don't sell their Private Jets the Media view it as criminal.

When Pelosi or Gore utilize their Private Jets the Media consider it proper because their work is so important for humanity...plus they also might catch a free ride.


Good one Daddy. JMH, steal that!!



When a private citizen who had the audacity to ask a presidential candidate a difficult question was discovered to have an unpaid tax lien: National Scandal.

When a current government employee failed to pay years of payroll taxes and had conflicting explaninations as to why he didn't: Treasury Secterary, because he has such "unique" qualifications.


JM Hanes-

Congratulations on the Instalanche.


Whatever deals were made on the porkus BILL probably don't really matter. Congress critters are dying to get out of town for Valentine's day and won't have time to read the new BILL before the vote.

Enterprising staffers can put in whatever they want and it won't be caught til too late.

New 40 acres and a 3BR 2BA proposal

No better than previous proposals and it allows the equivalent of cramdowns without the owner being delinquent.

ACORN representatives are available to help you right now - bring your voter registration and "I VOTED O!" sticker to move to the head of the line!!


Gateway via Malkin reports these goodies are back in the PORKUS BILL:

- $9 billion for school construction was added back in (originally cut by Nelson-Collins)

· $5 billion increase for the state fiscal stabilization fund (originally cut by Nelson-Collins), making it a grand total of $53.6 billion

· $2 billion for neighborhood stabilization program, money for groups like ACORN

· $1 billion added back for Prevention & Wellness Programs, including STD education

· Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research was added back in, leading Americans down the path towards healthcare rationing (63 patient advocacy groups signed a letter voicing their concerns with this provision)

one billion CUT from highways and bridges



Apparently, Goldman Sachs votes no-confidence on the Geinther plan.

-This meeting known as the "Goldman Sachs rountable" took place just hours after Geithner's speech (and the dismal market reaction) on Tuesday at the headquarters of Goldman Sachs (NYSE: gs) in lower Manhattan.

-Around 20 of the firm's biggest hedge fund and private equity clients from around the country showed up-a testament to just how concerned financial industry insiders are about what few details geithner presented


"The final deal is slimmed down to a mere $789 billion."

You misspelled slimmed - it is spelled 'slimed'
