Terry McAuliffe was a legendary Clinton fund raiser. Al Gore called him “the greatest fundraiser in the universe.”
McAuliffe also had the Midas Touch. In 1998 he invested $100,000 into something called Global Crossing and within 18 months had $18 million in his pocket. In less than four years Global Crossing went bankrupt, but McAuliffe knew to cash out well ahead of that. There’s more of this sordid affair here.
Back in January Barack Obama named the CEO of General Electric, Jeffrey Immelt, head of his Jobs Council.
In July, the head of the Obama Jobs Council announced that GE was moving its x-ray business to China. At least 65 new jobs for engineers were expected in addition to staff.
America is for sale and China has the money. They want 50 square miles South of Boise to build a self sustained Communist City. It would be designated and modeled after the “special economic zone” cities like several that currently exist in China. The Chinese Communist Party owns Sinomach, so the city would belong to the Chinese government. The city would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers, and homes for Chinese workers.
Let’s suppose there was someone who was so stupid, that he would borrow money from a neighborhood leg breaker and then give the money away to everyone in the neighborhood, including the leg breaker. Would you recommend that person be institutionalized? Welcome to Obama’s Theater Of The Absurd.
The reasons for Barack Obama’s intervention in Libya has never been really clear- or honest. The most commonly offered explanation given for bombing Libya has been the prevention of a humanitarian disaster. Sunday morning, Obama’s Abbott and Costello foreign policy team said that Libya was a direct threat to US national interest and at the same time that it was not. Of course, that does not explain why we interfere in Libya but not in other regions in which human rights are being oppressed- like North Korea, Iran or China.
In Sept, 2008, I penned the post, the US Economy: A Perfect Storm of Housing and Lending Events. This overview of how we managed to bring ourselves to the precarious cliff of a failed economy revealed it was not a single issue, but a combination of many events – including political pressure on lenders for homeownership, relaxing of GSE lending criteria, regulation/deregulation, and profit motivation by financial institutions – leading to an out of whack supply vs demand, driving up housing values to unsustainable and dangerous levels.
It never crossed my mind that financial terrorism could be another element to be factored in. So when the WA Times wrote of an unclassified Pentagon report by Kevin D. Freeman, my head perked up.
Republican Leaders Draw A Line In The Sand
Both Boehner and McConnell have declined invitations to a state dinner by President Obama to honor the Chinese leader Hu. Obama is like a giddy schoolgirl getting ready for a date with the high school quarterback as he bends over to make the Hu feel special.
