The nation's autopsy will show that the cause of death was the illegal alien invasion, the welfare state, and black revanchism.
First, illegal alien freeriders have invaded this country so they can take advantage of benefits that the government has created for Americans: public schools, school lunches, school breakfasts, public housing, food stamps, and more.
Although illegal aliens can't vote, their American-born offspring can.
These offspring want to vote for the party that keeps the spigot open: the Democratic Party. Like the barbarian Germanic tribes who sacked Rome in 476, the illegal aliens and their children are about to sack Washington.
Second, the welfare state had created a generation of welfare addicts, and the Democrats are the welfare dealers.
The Democrats have reduced even middle class Americans to crippling dependency on government programs like Social Security and Medicare by overtaxing them while they're in the workforce.
They don't call these programs "entitlements" for nothing.
As a result, Americans have developed a powerful sense of entitlement. Like the French, who demand 30-hour work weeks and retirement at 50, Americans have become lazy and selfish.
Now the Democrats hope to take this dependency into the stratosphere by creating universal health care and universal preschool. If the Democrats succeed in creating these programs, they will have a permanent lock on power.
Such programs will all but foreclose the possibility of even modest future tax cuts. At the same time, the masses of asses who have been reduced to crippling dependency on government will demand ever more tax increases on "the rich" - or what's left of them - like junkies demanding another hit.
Third, blacks are hungering for revenge against "whitey" for every imaginary slight against blacks: the death penalty, the Jena 6, and Hurricane Katrina, to name but a few.
Although Barack Obama might be cut from a different cloth than the Congressional Black Caucus, let there be no doubt that it will be the Black Caucus that rules the roost.
The soon-to-be enfeebled Obama - if you believe Joe Biden's prediction that this nation's enemies will soon test Obama and that "it will not always be apparent that he's right" - will be but silly putty for the likes of Maxine Waters and Charlie Rangel.

AS YOU CAN SEE BELOW, OSAMA BIN LADEN, SADDAM HUSSEIN AND BILL AYERS ALL CONTRIBUTED TO OBAMA AND ALL THREE WERE ACCEPTED WITHOUT A CHALLENGE THOUGH ALL "USED" THE SQME CREDIT CARD!!!
We've previously noted the gusher of illegal campaign contributions flowing into the Obama campaign from contributors such as "Doodad Pro" and "Good Will."
More recently, incidents have been reported in which people have seen credit card charges surface suggesting they donated to Barack Obama when they did not. Matthew Mosk and Sarah
Cohen noted one such incident earlier this week:
Now comes the story of Mary T. Biskup, of Manchester, Missouri. Biskup got a call recently from the Obama campaign, which was trying to figure out why she donated $174,800 to the campaign -- well over the contribution limit of $2,300.
The answer she gave them was simple. "That's an error."
Is the Obama campaign knowingly receiving illegal contributions? Yesterday one of our readers reported the results of an experiment he conducted:
I've read recent reports of the Obama campaign receiving donations from dubious names and foreign locales and it got me wondering: How is this possible?
I run a small Internet business and when I process credit cards I'm required to make sure the name on the card exactly matches the name of the customer making the purchase.
Also, the purchaser's address must match that of the cardholders. If these don't match, then the payment isn't approved. Period. So how is it possible that the Obama campaign could receive donations from fictional people and places? Well, I decided to do a little experiment. I went to the Obama campaign website and entered the following:
Name: John Galt Address: 1957 Ayn Rand Lane City: Galts Gulch State: CO Zip: 99999
Then I checked the box next to $15 and entered my actual credit card number and expiration date (it didn't ask for the 3-digit code on the back of the card) and it took me to the next page and... "Your donation has been processed. Thank you for your generous gift."
This simply should not, and could not, happen in any business or any campaign that is honestly trying to vet it's donors. Also, I don't see how this could possibly happen without the collusion of the credit card companies.
They simply wouldn't allow any business to process, potentially, hundreds of millions in credit card transactions where the name on the card doesn't match the purchasers name.
In short, with the system set up as it is by the Obama camp, an individual could donate unlimited amounts of money by simply making up fake names and addresses.
And Obama is doing his best to facilitate this fraud. This is truly scandalous.
Our reader was not yet done.
He tried the experiment on the McCain site: "I tried the exact same thing at the McCain site and it didn't allow the transaction."
He then repeated the experiment at the Obama site:
I went back to the Obama site and made three additional donations using the names Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Bill Ayers, all with different addresses.
All the transactions went through using the same credit card. I saved screenshots of the transactions.
Our reader reports, incidentally, that he was using his MasterCard for the contributions. We submit this report in the spirit of inquiry and would especially appreciate hearing from readers who can illuminate how credit card procedures might (or might not) allow this to happen.

CIA - the Agency has been plagued with poor management for 20 years.
Alan first hand note:
NOR ARE THEY OPEN TO RECRUITING OR TURNING FOREIGN AGENTS TO WORK FOR US. EVEN VERY SENIOR ONES WHO ARE VULNERABLE.
NOR DO THOSE , outside the agency, WHO COULD ASSIST WITH THIS HAVE ANYONE THEY CAN TRUST TO WHOM TO PROPOSE SUCH A PROJECT.
NOR TRUST THE CIA to not LEAK INFORMATION AND ENDANGER THE PERSON MAKING THE PROPOSAL.
Desk jockey careerists are all that are left behind as more and more "operationals" leave. Read below.
Information acquired by concerned AntiMullah volunteers as part of separate, non-CIA efforts, such as a top secret, openly concealed/disguised major communications center inside islamic iran, roughly about 2,000 computer size, remains unused as nobody at the CIA who could be trusted is approachable. For what it's worth the location inside a heavily populated neighborhood has snipers at multiple rooftops.
Equally ignored and without a trustworthy channel to the CIA is the information that could turn a very senior islamic intel bigwig to defect to us or to clandestinely work with us.
Sadly, the turf wars and territorial attitude among the intel and security agencies is that if THEY did not find it, it DOES NOT EXIST and so they do not want to be involved. Part of a CYA philosophy of the desk jockeys clinging to their table and corner rooms and a career.
CIA’s Loss of Top Spies ‘Catastrophic,’ Says Agency Veteran
Only a few months ago, Sam Faddis was running a CIA unit charged with preventing terrorists from getting nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
Today, only 50, the equivalent of a full colonel at the top of his game, he has quit.
Scores more like him, Faddis says, spies with years of working the back alleys of the world, have walked away from the CIA’s Operations Directorate at the top of their careers, at a time when the agency needs their skills the most.
The directorate is losing “25 or 30 chiefs of station” — the top CIA representative in a country or major city — “or their equivalent” at headquarters, every six months, Faddis estimates.
That’s out of an estimated thousand or fewer case officers — the men and women who recruit and manage spies — worldwide.

Obama: Springing a “Leak?” By Arnold Ahlert What do liberals fear the most? Having their true agenda revealed prior toan election. That is precisely why the Obama campaign and its media echochamber have attempted to destroy Joe Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber.”
CARACAS, Venezuela - President Hugo Chavez says a big naval base will be built on Venezuela's largest island.
(New Soviet incursion into the Carribean will be among those that Sen. Biden says will "test" the inexperienced Obama, should he be elected).
CARACAS, Venezuela — As the price of oil roared to ever higher levels in recent years, the leaders of Venezuela, Iran and Russia muscled their way onto the world stage, using checkbook diplomacy and, on occasion, intimidation.
Now, plummeting oil prices are raising questions about whether the countries can sustain their spending — and their bids to challenge United States hegemony.
For all three nations, oil money was a means to an ideological end.
Iran's oil minister said on Tuesday there was a consensus to set up a "gas OPEC," after talks with his Qatari counterpart and the head of Russia's Gazprom.
Gazprom Chief Executive Alexei Miller told the same news conference: "We have decided to be in close contact and we can say that today a major gas troika was formed." Russia, Iran and Qatar are ranked the first, second and third biggest holders of natural gas reserves in the world.
Europe and the United States have warned against such a grouping, saying it could pose a danger to global energy security and create room for price manipulation.
Venezuela To Buy Third Generation Armored Vehicles from Russia
Sevastyanov stressed that such agreements would result in Russian-Venezuelan military cooperation increasing considerably. Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, promised Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez, during their meeting last September 25 in Moscow, that he would deliver new weapons to the South American country.

ISLAMABAD, Asharq Al-Awsat - Despite the unusual media coverage given to stories that report on the presence of Arab fighters in Pakistani tribal areas, for the local tribesmen, the presence of Arab-Afghan militants remains a mystery.
Local tribesmen have also heard stories about Arab militants in tribal regions, but very few claim to have actually seen or met any fighters of Arab backgrounds.
Afghan journalism student sentenced to 20 years
Tuesday, October 21, 2008
KABUL, An Afghan appeals court overturned a death sentence Tuesday for a journalism student accused of blasphemy for asking questions in class about women's rights under Islam. But the judges still sentenced him to 20 years in prison.
The case against 24-year-old Parwez Kambakhsh, whose brother has angered Afghan warlords with his own writings, has come to symbolize Afghanistan's slide toward an ultraconservative view on religious and individual freedoms.
'30-year wait to tame young extremists'

The Bankruptcy of Islamic Law
By Joseph Klein
Some Islamic leaders have loudly proclaimed that the current economic crisis proves the superiority of their religion and way of life over capitalism and liberal democracy. As usual they are in a complete state of denial about the moral, intellectual and economic bankruptcy of the fundamentalist world-view they hold which is rooted in Islamic law. Here are a couple of examples of their empty boasts.
Switzerland, a Possible Target of Islamist Terrorism?
Published: October 21, 2008
Once considered the safest country in Europe, if not the world, Switzerland is now a potential target of a terrorist attack. Why? In the past few months something has happened to this quiet and neutral country where outside of an occasional banking scandal nothing much went on; at least nothing that merited international focus.
China 'more communist' than 20 years ago
China's economy is less capitalist and more state-controlled than it was twenty years ago, according to the author of a new book which attacks many of the main assumptions about the country's "miracle" boom.

Jihad and the ‘Reconciliation’ with Islamic Supremacism (Part One of Two)
American military leaders are calling for talks with the Islamic supremacist Taliban in Afghanistan, as part of some type of political "reconciliation" with Islamic supremacists in Afghanistan to promote "peace." Such military calls for "reconciliation" with Islamic supremacists in global theaters of war complement the increasing calls for "engagement" with Islamic supremacists by individuals in the counterterrorism and foreign policy communities.
Both groups use terms that sound appealing to an innately peace-loving America. However, such efforts at "reconciliation" and "engagement" are ultimately calls for surrender in the war of ideas against Islamic supremacists – by legitimizing the infiltration and influence of Islamic supremacists in dealing with Jihad.
A MASSIVE blackout left most of Venezuela without power today when a major electricity distribution line failed, officials said.
The outage, which began at 10.38am (2.08am AEDT Monday), has affected several million customers across broad swaths of the country, including in the capital, Caracas, where passengers in the underground subway were evacuated.
The blackout is the third major power failure to strike the oil-rich country in the last six months.(Alan note: did we hear that islamic iranian engineers have been hired to establish a power grid in Venezuela? Perhaps they believe that an average outage of some four hours a day in islamic iran is the "norm" and are building that defect into Venezuela.)
Defeating Libel Terrorism
By Deborah Weiss
FrontPageMagazine.com Monday, October 20, 2008
There are many forms of terrorism, and violence is just one of them. The non-violent, incremental strategies used to achieve the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal to “sabotage the west from within” are more insidious and more likely to be successful than violence.
Though non-violent radicalism takes many forms, one of the most dangerous forms is the effort to stifle free speech through the use of foreign defamation law suits.

It’s not just about ACORN any more.
When Hillary Clinton conceded the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama–possibly under duress from Obama’s cohorts and party leaders–she was probably supposed to have removed from the Internet all damning statements that she and her campaign had made about Barack Obama.
Unfortunately for Barry, a letter from her campaign counsel,
which is still online at http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2008/images/01/23/nv.state.letter.1.23.08.pdf, is about to become the dreaded October Surprise. (A backup copy is now at http://www.stentorian.com/Obama/clinton_complaint.pdf) .
This extremely damning letter not only reinforces what is being said about ACORN, but extends allegations of election irregularities to Barack Obama’s own campaign.
There is no place in the American electoral process for the types of voter suppression, intimidation, and harassment systematically engaged in by the Obama campaign, its allies and supporters.
RYAN, PHILLIPS, UTRECHT 5. MACKINNONATTORNEYS AT LAW’ Nonlawyer Partner1133 Connecticut Avenue, N.W. Suite 300 Washington, D.C. 20036(202) 293-1177 Facsimile (202) 293-3411
January 23, 2008Jill Derby, Chair Nevada State Democratic Party 1210 South Valley View Road Suite 114 Las Vegas, NV 89102
Dear Chair Derby:
I write on behalf of Hillary Clinton for President (”the Committee”) in regard to the January 19, 2008 Nevada Democ-ratic Caucus. The Committee is aware of a letter addressed to you today from the Obama for America campaign requesting an inquiry into the conduct of the caucuses.
The Committee shares the Obama campaign’s concern that full participation in the democratic process may have been compromised by the substantial number of irregularities occurring at the caucuses, and we fully support a complete inquiry by the Nevada State Democratic Party (the ”Party”) into all caucus improprieties.
This letter is not intended as a response to the Obama campaign’s letter. However, in the interest of a complete record, and in contrast to the alleged minor procedural problems noted by the Obama campaign, the Committee wishes to bring to your attention information we have received evidencing a premeditated and predesigned plan by the Obama campaign to engage in systematic corruption of the Party’s caucus procedures.
Compounding this blatant distortion of the caucus rules was an egregious effort by the Obama campaign to manipulate the voter registration process in its own favor, thereby disenfranchising countless voters. Finally, the Committee has received a vast number of reliable reports of voter suppression and intimidation by the Obama campaign or its allies.
The Committee had 30 phone lines on Saturday to receive calls in its Las Vegas offices. These lines rang continuously from early morning until well after the caucuses concluded with reports from people who were victimized and who observed irregularities.
The phone lines were so over-whelmed that many callers resorted to calling individual Committee staff cell phones to report that they could not get through. The Committee also received many similar calls at its national headquarters.
The Committee is confident that any investigation into the conduct of the caucuses will be thorough, fair and in the interest of insuring that future Party caucuses will be as open and democratic as possible.
Systematic Corruption of the Party’s Caucus Procedures The Committee received substantially similar reports of improprieties of such a number as to leave no conclusion but that the Obama campaign and its allies and supporters engaged in a planned effort to subvert the Party’s caucus procedures to its advantage.
þ Preference cards were premarked for Obama.
þ Clinton supporters were denied preference cards on the basis that none were left, while Obama supporters at the same caucus sites were given preference cards.
þ Caucus chairs obviously supporting Obama:
Deliberately miscounted votes to favor Senator Obama.o
Deliberately counted unregistered persons as Obama votes.
o Deliberately counted young children as Obama votes.
o Refused to accept preference cards from Clinton supporters who were at the caucus site by noon on the ground that the cards were not filled out fast enough.o
Told Clinton supporters to leave prior to electing delegates.
þ Clinton supporters who arrived late were turned away from the caucus, while late Obama supporters were admitted to the caucus.
Manipulation of the Voter Registration Process Numerous reports received by the Committee demonstrate a concerted effort on the part of the Obama campaign and its supporters to prevent eligible voters supporting a candidate other than Senator Obama from caucusing.
The Obama supporters complained of were acting in positions of authority at the caucus sites. Some of these reports are as follows:
þ Obama supporters wrongly informed Clinton supporters that they were not allowed to participate in the caucus if their names were not on the voter rolls. However, Obama supporters whose names did not appear on the voter rolls were permitted to register at the caucus site.
þ Obama supporters falsely informed Clinton supporters that no registration forms were available for them to register to vote at the caucus site.
þ Obama supporters wrongly told Clinton supporters who were attempting to caucus at the wrong precinct that they could not caucus at that site, while simultaneously permitting Obama supporters at the wrong precinct to participate.
þ Obama supporters were allowed to move to the front of the registration and sign-in line.
Voter Suppression and Intimidation
The Committee received a substantial number of disturbing reports from voters that they had been subject to harassment, intimidation or efforts to prevent them from voting. Some of the most egregious of these complaints are described below:
þ Voters at at-large caucus sites were informed that those sites were for Obama supporters only.
þ Clinton supporters at at-large caucus sites were told that their managers would be watching them while they caucused.
þ Workers were informed that their supervisors kept lists of Clinton and Obama supporters, and were told that they could not caucus unless their name was on the list of Obama supporters.
þ Many Clinton supporters were threatened with employment termination or other discipline if they caucused for Senator Clinton.
þ Workers were required to sign a pledge card to support Obama if they wanted time off to participate in the caucus.þ Workers at one casino were offered a lavish lunch and permitted to attend and register to vote only if they agree to support Obama.
The complaints summarized above represent only a small sample of the complaints received by the Committee.
With respect to each of these complaints and many more, the Committee has the names and phone numbers of those reporting these incidents and the specific precinct numbers where the incidents occurred.
Upon request the Committee will share these with the Party with appropriate safeguards to protect these individuals from reprisal.
On the whole, these reports show a troubling effort by the Obama campaign and its allies and supporters to advance their own campaign at the expense of the right of all Nevada Democrats to participate in the democratic process in a free, fair and open manner.
Senator Clinton and the Committee are wholly committed to ensuring that every eligible voter has his or her vote cast and counted. There is no place in the American electoral process for the types of voter suppression, intimidation and harassment systematically engaged in by the Obama campaign, its allies and supporters.
Sincerely,/vLyn Utrecht Counsel Hillary Clinton for President

Appraising 'The Jewel of Medina'
By Fred Burton and Scott Stewart“The Jewel of Medina,” a controversial work of historical fiction by American author Sherry Jones, was supposed to have gone on sale Oct. 15 in the United Kingdom. A series of events, however, have delayed its British release indefinitely. The book, which went on sale in the United States on Oct. 6, describes the life of Aisha, the young girl who became the Prophet Mohammed’s third — and according to many sources, favorite — wife. Some Muslims have labeled the book blasphemous and have branded the author an enemy of Islam. An associate professor of Islamic history at the University of Texas at Austin said Muslims would find the book very offensive and, in an August interview in The Wall Street Journal, likened it to soft-core pornography.
You have to pinch yourself – a Marxist radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshipped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported by a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. And apparently it’s considered impolite to say so.======
COLUMBUS -- More than 200,000 Ohioans who registered to vote this year for the first time or updated their voting information since Jan. 1 could be affected by the latest court ruling requiring the state to set up a new registration verification system by Friday, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner said. Brunner said she would comply with the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling late Tuesday
Facilitator for ACORN, Obama fraud and the Democrats forced to comply to verification.
But said she is deeply concerned that the decision is a veiled attempt at disenfranchising voters. The court's 9-6 opinion, written by Judge Jeffrey Sutton, suggested that voters whose driver's license number or Social Security number does not exactly match those found on databases maintained by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles or Social Security Administration could be required to use provisional ballots instead of conventional ones.

Immigration Has Arrested 11,000 'Transnational' Gang Members in 3 YearsTuesday, October 07, 2008 http://tinyurl.com/3hnwl5By Matthew Hadro
(CNSNews.com ) – Over the past three years, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested more than 11,000 members and associates of "transnational" gangs operating inside the United States. In an effort called Operation Community Shield, ICE has targeted street gangs, investigated their internal operations, disrupted their inflow of cash, weapons, and various assets, and worked to remove illegal alien gang members from the U.S. In the last four months alone--from June to September--ICE agents made nearly 1,800 arrests as part of what the agency is calling a nationwide public safety "surge." Almost 1,500 of those arrests were of gang members or their associates--including members of the violent transnational MS-13 gang.

Cuba training guerrillas in Venezuela
Published: Oct. 5, 2008 at 7:35 PM
SAN CRISTOBAL, Venezuela, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- The Venezuelan government is operating a secret paramilitary training camp with the help of Cuban military advisers and leftist Colombian guerrillas.
The camp near San Cristobal offers six-week courses for 400 to 1,000 participants, El Nuevo Herald reported Sunday.
The first phase of training at the camp reportedly is political indoctrination through texts printed in Cuba. The second phase includes training in the use of light and heavy weaponry and explosives.
The government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has not responded to allegations about the training camp, but local officials have acknowledged its existence and the presence of Cubans.

Sen. Barack Obama's "naïve" world view could embolden America's enemies during one of the most dangerous periods for America since the 1930s, U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman told Newsmax in an exclusive television sit-down interview Tuesday.
Lieberman, visiting Fort Lauderdale, Fla., also told Newsmax that he is so disappointed with the Democratic Party, he will consider whether to bolt the Democratic Senate caucus next session.
[You can see the full video broadcast on Newsmax.tv - Go Here Now].
"I believe he's naïve to think that people like [Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad and Tehran will somehow become America's friends by talking to them - a warm embrace and a cup of tea. It's not going to work that way," said Lieberman.
McCain's recent decline in the polls was "unfair" and "not rational,"
Lieberman said, referring to the negative economic news that has impacted the McCain campaign.
The Connecticut senator suggested that many Americans don't realize that the global economic crisis is also a security crisis-one that will require an experienced foreign policy hand like McCain to navigate.
"Frankly, he has to convince the American people that Barack Obama is not ready for prime time, that he's not ready to be president of the United States,'' Lieberman said. "Particularly not now, when we're in two wars abroad and facing the most serious economic crisis we've faced since the Great Depression."
McCain's recent drop in the polls, Lieberman said, stems from voter reaction to the subprime meltdown.
"The economy has had such a crisis the past couple of weeks, that for reasons that I don't think are fair or rational, Senator McCain seems to be losing as a result, and Senator Obama seems to be gaining. It's the only thing that's really changed," he said.
"The very fact that the American people clearly trust John McCain more in a national security crisis is exactly the reason why they should have more confidence in him in an economic security crisis than Senator Obama,"
In a wide-ranging interview, Lieberman also said:
. It's important for the political process to question Obama's ties to former Weather Underground bomber Bill Ayers: "I think these are very fair questions and it's now up to Senator Obama to answer them."
Barack Obama is clearly 'not ready' yet to be commander in chief, and the country's adversaries, including Iran "will not fear him" if he were to become president.
McCain needs to persuade voters that "based on his record, that he really is the one who will change Washington, and Washington truly needs to be changed."
. McCain should tout his economic plan that will emphasize tax cuts and job creation - exactly what a troubled economy needs. He said it would be foolhardy to raise taxes in a recession, as Obama has promised.
. The Republicans must emphasize that his plan for energy independence will create "hundreds of thousands, I think millions of new jobs."
Asked if he may leave his party and join with Senate Republicans, Lieberman said he had no immediate plans to make that move, but said he would consider it at a later date.
"The Democratic Party of today is not the Democratic Party that I joined in the '60s under my hero President Kennedy, and it's not the Democratic Party of my dear friend Bill Clinton," Lieberman said.
Still, Lieberman insists his main focus today is to get McCain elected president and has spent the past several months traveling the campaign trail on McCain's behalf.
On Monday night, he introduced McCain's vice presidential running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, to a Boca Raton audience at an event that raised more than $1 million.

A charity organization in the Saudi city of Yanbu' in western Saudi Arabia has drawn up a program encouraging men to take a second wife, with the aim of reducing the number of single women in the country.
In response, Saudi women's rights activist Wajeha Huwaidar published an article attacking the initiative, stating that the large number of single women in Saudi Arabia is due to the lack of opportunities for men and women to mingle, and also because girls' affairs are run by their fathers or brothers.

Alan NOTE: an Iranian government company with some 3,000 employees in the southern gas fields of Khuzestan, issued a similar order a couple of months ago ordering their employees of both genders to either get married or get fired. Ostensibly to reduce female coruption and prostituion in that area.
The mysterious death of an Egyptian billionaire whose body was found below his Mayfair flat just weeks after accusations that he had spied for Mossad is being investigated by a new team of murder detectives following complaints from family members that key evidence had disappeared.
Dr Ashraf Marwan's alleged murder is now being overseen by Scotland Yard's elite Specialist Crime Directorate, after it emerged that shoes worn when he fell five floors to his death could not be found by a previous inquiry team.
War on the Corner

Across the street from my building in Beirut, there’s a bakery that doubles as the local office of a Sunni political party.
Normally, the shebab — young men — spend all day and night roaring around the block on mopeds, or soaping and polishing their cars while playing thumping rap music. But one evening last May, while my wife and I were on a visit from New York, they were standing on the sidewalk with a hodgepodge of rifles and handguns.
One of them had put on a ski mask, which made his air of menace curiously abstract. When he hoisted his rifle, pretending to shoot, he held it from the waist like a child soldier in Liberia.
Justice Dept. Completes Revision of F.B.I. Guidelines for Terrorism Investigations
By ERIC LICHTBLAU
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department finalized on Friday an overhaul of rules that will give the Federal Bureau of Investigation freer rein to begin investigations into the possibility of terrorism, even without evidence of wrongdoing.
Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey approved the new guidelines after a review of several months that sought to consolidate different and sometimes conflicting standards within the F.B.I. that govern when agents can use informants, do undercover surveillance, interview witnesses or use other investigative techniques.
Must be why both Democrats and Muslims share so much in common as deathcults.

It's no laughing matter.
Funnyman ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is fuming after a ringtone advertisement based on his popular comedy skit, "Achmed the Dead Terrorist," was scrubbed from South African TV because it mocks Islam.
The ringtone was taken from a puppet routine performed by Dunham, a native Texan, in a TV special on Comedy Central. A 10-minute clip of the comedian's routine that was posted on YouTube has been viewed more than 66 million times since April.

Man beats wife until she is brain-dead
NAJRAN: Authorities in Najran are investigating a case where a man beat his wife until she became brain-dead. The daily Al-Madinah reported yesterday that the man beat his wife one day prior to Eid instead of presenting her with the season’s greetings. During the beating the woman choked on her tongue, which blocked oxygen to her brain. The woman is now in intensive care in a coma.
The technical affairs assistant at the Najran Red Crescent, Muhannad Al-Jarallah, said that they received a call the day before yesterday from a child reporting that his mother fell ill in the house and they had to move right away to the location. They performed first aid to the woman and then transferred her to King Khaled Hospital in Najran to receive medical treatment.

"Why the rabbit?"
"Great attitude," says the Sergeant. "When can you start?" smile:
Obama Campaign Tries to Shut Down Chicago Radio Show
-By Warner Todd Huston
Members of Barack Obama’s campaign HQ in Chicago tried to shut down a local radio show on the City’s most powerful radio signal, WGN 720, because they didn’t like a conservative guest that was on going on the air to discuss Senator Barack Obama’s ties to local terrorist William Ayers. This is a shocking attempt at stifling political free speech and a bald attempt to quash debate by the office of the Democratic Party’s nominee. The funny thing is, WGN is the most liberal station in the City with every host but one slavishly supporting the junior Senator from Illinois.
When communist global financier and socialist philanthropist and Open Society Institute founder George Soros hosted 2004 Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry [D-MA], Soros invited him to his private retreat in the Hamptons where "buyers and sellers" can talk without reporters overhearing quid pro quo conversations that might not be construed as legal to the wrong ears.
When Soros hosted a major fund raiser for unknown Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama in the fall of 2004, the soiree took place at his New York home. That evening Soros wasn't buying either a President or a prospective US Senator. He was simply fishing in a new political stream.
Soros intended to snag the young political fish, reel him in just a little—but keep him on the hook, letting him grow until he was mature enough to fit Soros' plans. And what were his plans? It appears Soros, who was born on Aug. 12, 1930 in Budapest, Hungary, would like to President of the United States. Of course, because he is not a natural-born American, he has to be content to be a surrogate president—the puppet master who pulls the strings of the man in the Oval Office.
"Let's be blunt: If John McCain wins the election and drops dead during his first year in office, someone not very experienced will become president.
But the same is true if Barack Obama wins the election and doesn't drop dead during his first year in office."

Man gets 35 years in '06 terror plot
By Jeff Coen
There was a time when Derrick Shareef thought that Osama bin Laden was a wise "sheik," and that launching a grenade attack on a mall would bring "victory to Islam."But those days are behind him, the 24-year-old from Rockford promised U.S. District Judge David Coar at his sentencing hearing Tuesday. Shareef said he now thinks that groups like Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are misguided and that Islam is about purity and education.
TERROR & TORTURE IN MEXICO
Eight dead bodies were found Tuesday alongside messages from drug gangs in the northern Mexican city of Tijuana, where 16 dead bodies were found a day earlier. Six of the bodies found Tuesday in the city along the US border were inside barrels with sulfuric acid in the city center, while the two others were found in the suburbs.
The public prosecutor’s office in the state of Baja California said the barrels included a message.
“This is what happens to the engineer, and we will make stew with all those who are with him,” the message said.

Iran Poses Biggest Threat to Iraq's Stability, Pentagon Says
By Ed Johnson
Iranian support for Shiite militia groups poses the biggest threat to long-term stability in Iraq, where recent improvements in security are ``fragile,'' the U.S. Defense Department said.
Iran continues to ``fund, train, arm and direct'' groups intent on destabilizing its neighbor and its influence in Iraq is ``malign,'' the Pentagon said in its quarterly report to Congress.
While civilian deaths between June and August were down 77 percent on the same period last year, Iraq faces unresolved issues that may trigger fresh violence, including the status of the oil city of Kirkuk and the integration of Sunni tribesmen into the security forces, according to the report.
Barack Obama is hurling a major attack on the Bush administration, John McCain, and anyone else that is Republican and blaming them for the current financial mess.
Let us be clear here.
The current financial scenario began in 1999.
There were lobbyists who worked with Democrats for a year, spending $1 million paid to the Democrats to get a bill passed that allowed financial institutions and banks to work together / merge.
This allowed money to be loaned out to “anyone that could walk”, according to Bill Clinton’s former financial guru, Robert Reich.
The goal was to free up money so that any American could participate in the American dream, whether they could qualify for a home loan or not.
This money was then made available to those who would not otherwise qualify for a home loan.
This idea had been pushed for many years by Liberals who want everything to be “fair”, redistribution of wealth, etc. Bill Clinton signed this bill in 1999.
In 2005, John McCain introduced a bill along with a detailed explanation of the troubles surrounding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
He detailed reasons needed for the reform of these institutions. He gave details and examples of billions of dollars in “profit” being shown to help the executives of these to meet their goals which resulted in large bonuses for them.
The profits were not there, as the “books were cooked”.
John McCain’s bill failed to pass, largely due to the huge sums of money passed between Fannie and Freddie to politicians that kept regulators off the backs of Fannie and Freddie. There was no oversight.
Obama speaks of “reform” of our major institutions.
Please keep this in mind. Out of all Senators, Obama is one of the newest to the Senate, less than 3 years.
However, he benefited in the 2nd highest position, with approximately $120,000 being donated to his political campaigns by Fannie and Freddie. He wants you to believe he is for reform here while accepting thousands of dollars from these very institutions. The #1 recipient of Fannie / Freddie money is Chris Dodd, who by coincidence, heads up the Fed’s Banking Commission!!!!!!! Can you say “good ol’ boys” ???? A Democrat is also in the #3 spot for receiving funds.
Let us take this a step further.
Obama has two high ranking financial advisers, Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines. Each of these men have headed up Fannie and Freddie.
In 6 years that Raines was in charge, he made $90 million personally.
In addition to leading Fannie/ Freddie, Jim Johnson was head of Lehman Brothers!
Each of these financial institutions have gone bankrupt, with now Fannie and Freddie being taken over by the Federal Government.
THINK ABOUT THIS FOLKS!!!!!!!
Obama has, as two of his top financial advisers, men who helped run Lehman Brothers and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the ground, costing Americans billions of dollars, while they walked away with millions in their own pockets.
Do not be surprised if Obama is already thinking of cabinet posts for these two same men!
Do not be fooled, Obama has no intention of reforming anything. He is in bed with the very people he claims to want to reform. Once again, an example of liberals believing that all Americans are ignorant.
This is not going to work. America is not socialist, liberal, or Marxist. Dukakis did not win, Gore did not win, Kerry did not win, and Obama will not win.
If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. WINSTON CHURCHILL
