Hooks and Pincers

There are times in your life when you feel depressed and sorry for yourself. Then God sends you a special person to remind you that, really, you have never had a bad day at all.

No Jewels in Crowns

After years of failed investments across Canada and around the world, Saskatchewan’s Crowns are finally pulling out. The province’s new “Saskatchewan First” policy for the crowns means SaskTel, SaskPower, SaskEnergy, and SGI will focus on opportunities in their home province. But even though the era of boondoggles abroad has ended, the problems posed by existing Crowns remain, and, in some ways, may even get worse.

Uncork the Competition

No government ever wants to be called hypocritical.  For that reason, taxpayers may be able to squeeze some good policy reform out of the provincial government in the area of alcohol sales.

Obama and the Potential Blackmail Factor

PajamasMedia
There’s a huge and much-overlooked reason for filling in those gaps in Barack Obama’s resume, and letting America’s voters see any and all tapes, transcripts and other documentation of his career and friendships — and fast. It’s called the potential for blackmail.

YOU could be Funding the Obama Campaign?

Among the many unasked and, thus, unanswered questions swirling around the most secretive presidential campaign in history, is the question of where that mountain of Obamessiah money is coming from?

America Is Better Than All That

The media, however, isn’t.  How they can turn a blind eye as Obama has a team of prosecutors and sheriffs in Missouri threatening to prosecute anyone who airs ads against their candidate which they deem to be untrue?  Note that Obama has taken great liberties to try to distort statements made about him by McCain as being untrue.  His objection to anything unfavorable as being “false” is a prelude to what he and his team would like to go after in their quest to stifle debate.  Can there be a bigger challenge to free speech?

And the survey says…

While the recent drop in the price of natural gas and oil may help ease the pocketbook-pain of motorists and homeowners, it is going to inflict pain on the provincial treasury. The reason is quite simple - the lower the price of oil and natural gas, the less money the government collects.

Assigning blame for Fannie and Freddie

On the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the $700 billion bailout, much of the attention has to be placed on the men and women we elect to Congress, as they bear a large share of the blame! Most of the blame though, rests with President Bill Clinton and his appointees who earlier mishandled the administration and finances of those agencies.

To socialism,  moral downfall,  exposure and danger to our enemies and economic ruin!

Oh good!  Now we see millions paid for Obama’s 30-minute infomercial plastered everywhere on national TV accept Fox.  What a shock he denied Fox of the privilege of his presence.  It was choreographed, smooth, a literal, acted out movie designed to continue and enhance the national seduction.  Don’t you dare look at the man behind the curtain, the hideous voting record, the ongoing and lied about associations with former unrepentant terrorists, anti Semitic racists,  Muslim extremists,  communists and racist preachers.  Just notice the timed rhetoric,  cool clothes and hair and his hypnotic mantra about change from Bush.

The Right to Health in Zimbabwe suffering a heavy blow

Gweru-Zimbabwe-76-year-old Ambuya ( a local name for grandmother) Mandlovu of Mutapa suburb, in the Midlands province capital, Gweru, visits the province’s largest referral hospital. A diabetic patient, Ambuya Ndlovu hopes to find the drugs that can ease her condition. But the hospital, despite the infrastructure that gives it an appearance of a magnificent health center is a pale shadow of what used to be excellent health facilities that could be accessed by patients a few years ago. Gweru is Zimbabwe’s third largest city. Despite opening its doors to the public, Gweru General Hospital, just like other big hospitals in Zimbabwe has literally closed its doors as drugs and other health equipment are just not available. Who could ever have imagined that patients like Granny Mandlovu would one day be asked to buy their own needles and medications at government health institutions?

Code Pink could be red alert that election’s not in the bag for Obama

imageCode Pink could be a red alert that Tuesday’s presidential election is not in the bag for Barack Hussein Obama.

Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin is part of a coalition seeking an 11th hour request for UN international election observers to monitor Election Day votes.

Could it be that Obama’s radical supporters are worried that ACORN voter fraud has not guaranteed Obama a win?

Just five days before votes are cast in Election ’08, Medea is part of Coalition of U.S. “pro-democracy” organizations petitioning members of the Economic and social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations for international election observers for Tuesday’s presidential elections.

Indeed the very next day after Obama’s $4-million television infomercial, Medea and other activists were visiting the U.S. Embassies of ECOSOC member nations, including New Zealand, Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia, France, the United Kingdom and Sweden.

Rashid Khalidi and Edward Said: Barack Obama’s Good Friends

imageWe’ve been here before, back in the third week of March 2008 to be precise. Recall the NEINblog entry “Barak Hussein Obama & his questionable connections” which was dreived directly from the news originally broken by Dr. Laurie Roth on her nationally syndicated radio program. Well, now the McCain/Palin campaign has finally been convinced that the long-term friendship between Obama and Khalidi is of the utmost importance to the American electorate five days before the election. A report in yesterday’s Jerusalem Post which has been updated today has the details. The McCain campaign call is for the Los Angeles Times to release a tape it has had for quite some time now. That tape was the basis of Peter Wallsten’s April 10, 2008 article entitled “Allies of Palestinians see a friend in Barack Obama.” A key sentence of Wallsten’s article stated:

Voting for the wealth creation America needs

- John Clema
Forty years ago, the United States was a superpower, a country both revered and feared. Today, its own citizens and politicians, and people around the world, question America’s well-being, resolve and belief in itself.
