"The European Union needs the joint all-European army. The subject surfaced in the beginning of the 1990s, when European countries realized the scale of global changes after the fall of the iron curtain.
The US administration is very negative about the idea. The question about the all-European army was pushed into the background after the Balkan war, when European armies were acting within the framework of KFOR and NATO. The USA believed that one needed to strengthen NATO, and everyone agreed. France was trying to show resistance to it, but after the nation became a full-fledged member of NATO on Sarkozy’s initiative, the French administration forgot about the creation of the all-European army too.
Things changed in 2009. The European Parliament established the Rapid Deployment Force of the European Union in 2009. Last week, officials of the Italian administration put forward a suggestion to look into the matter of the European Army again. Italy’s Foreign Minister Franco Frattini stated that Europe needed the army to deepen the European integration, optimize the spending on military operation in NATO and repulse possible threats.
It is worthy of note that every European country, which participates in the military operation in Afghanistan, has to maintain its contingent with arms and military hardware, although there can be bilateral agreements reached at this point. Europe could have a more rational approach to the issue once the continent has the joint army. For example, one country would supply tanks, another one – fighter jets, another one – communication systems, etc.
The European Union has a more important reason for creating the army. Europe wants to increase its weight in the world and turn into a real center of influence. Europe has not been happy with its role of America’s minor partner, not to mention its position of a subordinate member in NATO.
European leaders are also concerned about the global political revival of Asia and Africa. However, the biggest risk factor appeared with the creation of the union between the United States and China. Europe decided to create its Rapid Deployment Force soon after the presentation of the G2 project. Furthermore, the idea to create the joint EU Army was voiced against the background of the discussion of Obama’s visit to China.
If the USA and China unite into the G2, they will create the Pacific axis, and the Atlantic Alliance will be forgotten. The interests of America’s foreign policy has taken a different turn – to the East, which means that Europe must take care of its security."

Chavez, The Chinese Communist Party and Other "Leftest" Attended the "First International Meeting of Parties of the Left"
While it was not attened by anyone in the Obama Administration, it was attended by the Chinese Communist Party. Here is the Article:
"If nothing else, the "First International Meeting of Parties of the Left" in Caracas last week was ambitious. Heeding the call by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for a fifth socialist international, participants set in motion planning for a founding session next April in Caracas.
They were called upon to respond, also, to new threats from U.S. imperialism. Colombian Senator Piedad Cordoba, a Liberal Party member, ended the meeting by urging support for protests worldwide Dec. 12-17 against new U.S. bases in Colombia.
A working group was established to prepare for the April meeting, particularly for ideological discussion. That gathering is timed to the 200th anniversary that month of a rebel government taking power in Caracas. Now it's the socialists' turn to organize a "solidarity based" society, declared Nicolás Maduro, the Venezuelan foreign minister.
Last week's meeting took place over three days at the state-owned Hotel Alba, formerly the Caracas Hilton, dedicated now to "socialist tourism." Some 120 participants were on hand representing 50 parties and groups from 39 countries. The United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) hosted the gathering.
A "Commitment of Caracas" coming out of the gathering set forth six overall goals. They included calls for action against the U.S. bases, reversing the coup in Honduras, shaping a "culture of peace," dissemination of revolutionary consciousness, building a worldwide vehicle for cooperative action, and solidarity with all those in struggle.
The document contained three "Special Declarations." One demanded an end to the U.S. anti-Cuban blockade and release of the Cuban Five, and another, mobilization for a "world vigil" on Nov. 29, election day under the "Honduran dictatorship." The third declaration called for convening of the fifth socialist international (The First International was the one that Marx and Engels participated in, the second was the grouping of Socialist parties prior to the First World War, the third was the Communist International (COMINTERN) established after the Russian Revolution, and the "Fourth International" brought together followers of Leon Trotsky).
President Chavez called the conference outcome "ratification that Bolivarian Venezuela is not alone," especially with mounting U. S. and European media hostility, U. S. bases in Colombia, and Colombian paramilitary forays crossing into Venezuela. Piedad Cordoba urged upon the meeting "absolute backing" for Venezuela's Bolivarian revolution so that Chavez not be "cornered." She held up his role in the transition to socialism as crucial.
"I assume the responsibility before the world," said Chavez introducing his proposal for a fifth international. In contrast with the European orientation of previous internationals, he explained, this one would have roots in Latin America, incubator of present-day socialism. Chavez cautioned that as the fifth international confronts both imperialism and capitalism, it must steer clear of errors that undid 20th century versions of socialism. Welcoming ideological debate, he argued that "socialism of the 21st century'' will be determined by the history and needs of individual nations.
The Venezuelan Communist Party (PCV) joined other Communist parties present in withholding approval for a new socialist international on grounds that world Communist parties are already acting in concert through yearly meetings of communist and workers' parties organized from Greece. On its Popular Tribune web site, the PCV backed common struggle against "terror and the looming military threat," specifically a "broad, continental anti-imperialist front," a project that non-socialists would also join.
A fifth international, however, is another matter. The PCV took exception to the ideological scatter of the left parties represented in Caracas and involvement even of right-wing parties, notably the Institutional Revolutionary Party of Mexico and Argentina's Justicialist Party, which includes Peronists of every kind.
Some non-Communist left formations - for example, Germany's Die Linke, France's Parti de Gauche, the Alternative Democratic Pole of Colombia (which includes the Colombian Communist Party and others), and the Brazilian Workers Party - were favorably disposed, but postponed approval. The French, Cuban, Greek, Portuguese, Chinese and Vietnamese Communist parties were represented, also the FMLN of El Salvador, Nicaragua's Sandinistas, and Bolivian President Evo Morales' party, Movement toward Socialism.
The complete Commitment of Caracas is published on venezuelanalysis.com. Its far-reaching goals are epitomized by characterization of the "structural crisis of capital [as an] economic crisis, an ecological crisis, a food crisis, and an energy crisis." This onslaught represents "a mortal threat to humanity and mother earth," the document says. The remedy is "construction of an ecologically sustainable society as a fundamental axis of our struggle for a better world."

Communist Party USA National Chair Says: "President Obama’s election has made a difference, and the progressive movement has space to dream again"
In this Report he talks about how President Obama's Election has allowed the 'Progressives" to Dream again. You Know, the Progressives like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. The Same Progressive wing of the Democrat Party that was spawned from the Communist Party USA in the 1950's.
Here is apart of the report from Sam Webb:
"Slightly over a year ago, the American people elected a young African American to the presidency and increased the Democratic majority in the Congress. President Obama’s victory represented a repudiation of right-wing ideology, politics and economics and a setback for neoliberalism in both its conservative and liberal skins.
This victory was a long time in coming. When it finally happened it did so not only because of the brilliance of the candidate, but also due to the broad shoulders of a people’s coalition.
The swing in the political pendulum ushered in the possibility of a new era. After 30 years of right-wing dominance, the balance of political power tilted once again in a progressive direction.
Though that tilt wasn’t far enough for a people’s agenda to be easily enacted, political advantage did shift, and that’s no small accomplishment.
Perhaps it is obvious, but if McCain and Palin had been elected, a public option would not be in the center of the conversation — in fact, health care reform wouldn’t even be on the agenda. The Employee Free Choice Act would be off labor’s wish list. The stimulus package would be far smaller and unemployment much higher. There would not be a Puerto Rican woman on the Supreme Court. Our government would be actively supporting the coup regime in Honduras, and relations with Cuba would be frozen or worse. Legislation extending hate crimes to include anti-gay violence would still be on the ‘to do’ list. And not a word would have been mentioned about the abolition of nuclear weapons.
In short, President Obama’s election has made a difference, and the progressive movement has space to dream again. There are limits and obstacles to be sure, but what should frame our outlook are hope and possibility. The great reformer of the 20th century, Rev. Martin Luther King, taught us this lesson.
The purpose of this discussion paper is to assess where the country and world are a year after the election, refine our strategic and tactical policies, outline some practical actions, and discuss our role in a very complex situation.
The world, it is generally acknowledged, has been torn loose from the old moorings that for decades structured life for billions of people.
This unhinging began with the Volcker “shock” in 1979 (when Federal Reserve Bank chairman Paul Volcker lifted interests rates to nearly 20 per cent), the election of Reagan a year later, and the meltdown of the Soviet Union at decade’s end. But it reached a new stage with the rise of China, India, and Brazil, the resurgence of Russia, the social transformations in Venezuela and other Latin American countries; the Iraq war, and the recent world financial and economic crisis.
At the time of the Soviet collapse, defenders of U.S. imperialism declared U.S. imperial power was preeminent and that would remain the case, far into the 21st century. But obviously they badly misread the tealeaves. Though still dominant, the limits of U.S. power are narrowing and a multi-polar world is taking shape.
It is easy to imagine China rivaling the U.S. on the world scene. To go a step further and predict a civilizational re-centering from Europe and America to Asia, with all its implications, isn’t out of the question either. (Although, it should be added that while trends are instructive, they become less so as they stretch far into the future. History can, and usually does, surprise.)
This transitional period, some theorists of international relations say, will bring instability, even chaos, and we should not dismiss this out of hand. In earlier periods, conflict, crisis, and war scarred the landscape as once dominant states declined and new ambitious rivals sought to take their place. Such rivalry turned the first half of the 20th century into a bloody and barbaric era.
At the same time, the past doesn’t have to be prelude to the future. People and nations do learn. Historical memory can be a force for progress. The vast majority of humankind strongly desires an easing of tensions, an end to violence, and the normalization of international relations.
They want dialogue, negotiation, and a cooperative effort to address climate change, nuclear weapons proliferation, finite natural resources, swelling poverty and disease and broad-based and sustainable economic growth — not threats, war, and uneven economic development.
All of these challenges require speedy collective action. The global talk is ticking
While rivalry between states — especially in a multi-polar world — is built into the world system, the appetite and ambition of our imperialism constitutes the main obstacle to cooperation, peace, and equality.
A less malleable world
U.S. imperialism so far has been reluctant to yield ground to subordinate classes, nations, and regions entwined in the global world order. But reluctance is one thing; capacity to enforce your will is another.
U.S. imperialism doesn’t have the same reserves and legitimacy as it had in the second half of the 20th century, its global power is far more circumscribed and collective resistance to the re-imposition of old imperial relationships, dressed in new forms, comes from many different quarters, including from the American people. Hundreds of millions are insisting that the new century not be a rerun of the second half of the old, in which a single country and its allies largely determined the path of global political and economic development. Such a path was unjust, unsustainable, and unacceptable then and is more so now. The world is far less malleable to the architects of imperial rule.
The current worldwide economic crisis has reinforced these sentiments. The turn to neoliberalism, financialization, and hyper globalization three decades ago not only resulted in financial and economic ruin on a world scale, but also, it is commonly understood, originated on Wall Street and in Washington.
Thus the global economic crisis has amplified the insistence of people worldwide that a new economic order be constructed — shorn of U.S. dominance. Not everybody is having it, especially in the seats of imperial power. Some want to reconstruct the old order, while some others are for minor changes that would not undercut in any significant way the dominant position of the U.S.
The outcome of this struggle is still to be decided in the decades ahead. And like everything else, it will be determined as much by human actions as the evolution of broader objective processes.
And given the immediacy of global challenges, history has to be speeded up. This is where humankind again comes in."

Both Bills in the House and Senate are worded so that Employed Illegals will get Coverage:
"The House bill mandates, and the Senate bill strongly encourages, businesses to extend health care coverage to all employees. But the bills do not have exemptions to screen out illegal immigrants, who usually obtain jobs by using false identities and are indistinguishable from legal workers."
The Center for Immigration Studies suggests that over 1 Million Illegals could obtain Health Insurance through their Employers.

According to an Article on BBC.com, Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, has a new course for those with a Body Mass Index(BMI) over 30.
Those that are deemed "overweight" are sanctioned by the College to take a class that includes Pilate's, Exercises and Fitness games. If a Student fails to complete the course, and still doesn't have a BMI of 30 or under, then they will fail to graduate.
Professor James L Deboy head of the Health, Physical Education and recreational Department of Lincoln University says that around 30 students are not likley to pass:
"Around 15% of the Student population each fall has failed to earn a BMI of less than 30," he told the BBC World Service. "So we anticipate two dozen not being able to complete the course."
Many students have expressed their anger and claim the the College has no Business sticking their nose in what the students perceive as their personal business.
But Professor Deboy says that Drastic Times call for Drastic Measures, since the United States is in the Midst of an "Obesity Epidemic".

According to an Article on the Telegraph UK.com, some of these E-mails are very Damning to the cause of Global Warming. Here is apart of that Article:
Climategate: the final nail in the coffin of 'Anthropogenic Global Warming'?
"When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realise just why the boffins at Hadley CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory – suggest:
"Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more."
One of the alleged emails has a gentle gloat over the death in 2004 of John L Daly (one of the first climate change sceptics, founder of the Still Waiting For Greenhouse site), commenting:
“In an odd way this is cheering news.”
But perhaps the most damaging revelations – the scientific equivalent of the Telegraph’s MPs’ expenses scandal – are those concerning the way Warmist scientists may variously have manipulated or suppressed evidence in order to support their cause.
Here are a few tasters. (So far, we can only refer to them as alleged emails because – though Hadley CRU’s director Phil Jones has confirmed the break-in to Ian Wishart at the Briefing Room – he has yet to fess up to any specific contents.) But if genuine, they suggest dubious practices such as:
Manipulation of evidence:
"I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline."
Private doubts about whether the world really is heating up:
"The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t."
The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming:
"but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate."
Suppression of evidence:
"Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4?
Keith will do likewise. He’s not in at the moment – minor family crisis.
Can you also email Gene and get him to do the same? I don’t have his new email address.
We will be getting Caspar to do likewise."
Fantasies of violence against prominent Climate Sceptic scientists:
"Nexttime I see Pat Michaels at a scientific meeting, I’ll be tempted to beatthe crap out of him. Very tempted."
Attempts to disguise the inconvenient truth of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP):
"……Phil and I have recently submitted a paper using about a dozen NH records that fit this category, and many of which are available nearly 2K back–I think that trying to adopt a timeframe of 2K, rather than the usual 1K, addresses a good earlier point that Peck made w/ regard to the memo, that it would be nice to try to “contain” the putative “MWP”, even if we don’t yet have a hemispheric mean reconstruction available that far back…."
And, perhaps most reprehensibly, a long series of communications discussing how best to squeeze dissenting scientists out of the peer review process. How, in other words, to create a scientific climate in which anyone who disagrees with AGW can be written off as a crank, whose views do not have a scrap of authority.
“This was the danger of always criticising the skeptics for not publishing in the “peer-reviewed literature”. Obviously, they found a solution to that–take over a journal! So what do we do about this? I think we have to stop considering “Climate Research” as a legitimate peer-reviewed journal. Perhaps we should encourage our colleagues in the climate research community to no longer submit to, or cite papers in, this journal. We would also need to consider what we tell or request of our more reasonable colleagues who currently sit on the editorial board…What do others think?”
“I will be emailing the journal to tell them I’m having nothing more to do with it until they rid themselves of this troublesome editor.”“It results from this journal having a number of editors. The responsible one for this is a well-known skeptic in NZ. He has let a few papers through by Michaels and Gray in the past. I’ve had words with Hans von Storch about this, but got nowhere. Another thing to discuss in Nice !”

She says the affected batch contains 172,000 doses of the vaccine. She declined to say how many doses had been administered before the advice to stop using them was given.
White says GlaxoSmithKline wrote to Canadian healthcare professionals advising them to stop using the batch on Nov. 18. She says a total of 7.5 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed in Canada."

But it now appears a Company is Proving that Remote Control of your Appliances can be done without the Smart Grid. Here is the Article from Smart Grid News.com:
"Zerofootprint has developed the TalkingPlug™, an easy-to-use stand-alone device that both industry and residential consumers can install to better manage their energy consumption. The device contains the capability of two-way communications with the Internet and offers users a convenient way to determine how much electricity individual appliances use.
Developed in conjunction with 2D2C, the TalkingPlug also allows users to automatically or remotely turn off appliances. It works independently or in conjunction with existing monitoring technology. In other words, it works with our without any other Smart Grid technologies—and unlike existing smart meters and other similar devices, circuits do not need to be rewired or appliances upgraded. Users insert the TalkingPlug into a standard receptacle, give it some information about the appliance to be monitored and that's it.
The TalkingPlug electrical outlets contain energy measurement instruments, on/off relays, appliance identification tags and wireless networking technology. They also act as wireless communication nodes on a building energy network. The nodes constantly send appliance-specific energy consumption information to a local gateway for collection and storage.
"As we move towards a world in which every plug and every light switch talks to the Internet, and carbon monitoring comes as naturally as breathing, we are witnessing a major cultural shift," said Dr. Ron Dembo, founder and CEO of Zerofootprint. "TalkingPlug is taking environmental consciousness to a new level, by making it easy—through software intelligence and automation, and making it real—with benchmarking and comparisons."
Zerofootprint's VELOpulse™ interface displays the data with graphical meters and shows trends and reports on how energy consumption compares to others. The Web-based software also can analyze, compare and display the energy consumption information.
The company is working with utilities, appliance makers and technology resellers to bring its product to market globally and to consumers."
This is the Technology that will help make the Smart Grid a reality and Hasten the Government's Control over every aspect of your Life that pertains to Energy use.
Thanks to ZeroFootprint, Sooner rather than Later, all of us will end up with Zero Liberty..

How They Are Going to Get you To Drive an Electric Car and Push the Smart Grid That Will Control Your Life
Needless to say, the Smart Grid will Control every aspect of your life and even give the Government the Power to Tax you by the Mile since your Electric car will talk to the Smart Grid.
What Electric Car you Ask?
The Electric Car that the Government, and Other Corporations, are Planning to convince you to Buy.
Well according to an Article on Smart Grid News.com, they are going to "Trick" you into buying an Electric Car by Convincing you it will break our reliance on Foreign Oil. Here is a part of the Article:
"No one knows better than I do the struggle to sell the Smart Grid to ordinary folks. My mother-in-law won’t let me come to Thanksgiving dinner next week unless I promise I won’t talk about substations.
But something happened this week that I believe will help sell the Smart Grid to ordinary folks. At the same time, it will also increase the pressure on utilities.
I’m talking about the Electrification Roadmap announced Monday by a new coalition that includes such heavyweights as Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn and Frederick W. Smith, Chairman, President and CEO of FedEx Corp.
Their roadmap outlines a vision for a fully integrated electric transportation system in the U.S. It documents the challenges, but also offers policymakers and business leaders a framework for overcoming them.
This could be a true inflection point for the Smart Grid. Electric transportation is something the public wants; it will take a significant infrastructure upgrade to make it happen; and it can only happen if everyone gets really good at standards.
Why This Matters
Tell the average consumer that you want to raise rates to put in a Smart Grid to improve system reliability and you'll get at best a blank stare (if not a glare of protest). Even the promise of more renewables is not enough to get many Americans excited, especially if it means rates will go up. But tell them "freedom from foreign oil" and they get it right away. No blank stares.
So we need to position electric transportation as one more converging mega-trend (along with renewable integration, demand response, etc.) that makes the Smart Grid indispensible because you simply cannot get from here to there without it."
In the Next year expect to be Flooded with Ads that tell you an Electric Car will Help reduce our dependency on Foreign Oil.
But While that may be True what they Fail to tell you is that Electric Cars will also Increase your Dependency on the Government.
And Give the Government almost Total Control of your Life Through the Smart Grid.

According to an Article in the Daily Mail, a 41 Year Old Mother thinks that the British National Health Service(NHS) should pay for her sons Hormone Blockers so that he won't turn into a man:
"The mother of a 14-year-old boy who is desperate to undergo sex change treatment has hit out at the NHS for refusing to give him hormone blockers.
She wants her son to receive the medication now to stop his adolescence from progressing.
By the time the youngster, who wears make-up and dresses like a girl, turns 18 it will be too late for him to look like a woman, the mother believes.
'With his puberty suspended, he wouldn't grow to six foot and have big hands,' the mother-of-three told The Sun.
'It should be available on the NHS.'"
People are being denied cancer Treatments in the UK by the NHS and this self centered Twit thinks that her son's Sex Change should be covered by the Tax Payers.
Just wait, it's coming to the U.S. when they pass that Government Health Care Bill.

According to an Article on the Telegraph.UK, the National Health Service(NHS) has declared a Troubled Marriage an "illness" which will require the Government to pay for Marriage Counseling.
But what has outraged so many Britons is that while NHS is going to Pay for Marriage Counseling they are denying other more important Treatments for Disease like Cancer:
"The NHS is expected to pay existing marriage guidance services, and newly-trained counsellors to provide the therapy.
Doctors and patients groups last night attacked the recommendation, contained in guidance by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). NICE has repeatedly come under fire for decisions to reject life-extending drugs for cancer and treatment to reduce symptoms of dementia.
On Thursday, NICE was accused by charities of "condemning patients" to an early death by rejecting the use of Nexavar, a drug which can extend the lives of liver cancer, arguing that its £9 million annual cost – £3,000 a month per patient – could not be justified.
Nick James, professor of clinical oncology at the Cancer Research UK Institute for Cancer Studies said: "I am horrified, in particular because of the way these decisions are taken without public debate.
"I think most people would say treatment for those who are sick with cancer should be top of our list, and I would really question whether these kinds of efforts to preserve marriages are a matter for the state."
Supporters of the "Public Option" in the U.S. Health Care bill say that Private Health Insurance Companies already "ration" Health Care since they already deny Treatment to Patients because of cost.
But what they fail to mention is that currently people can sue a Private Insurance Company after such an action is taken and force the Company to Cover the Denied Procedure.
But when the Government starts to Ration your Health Care, the Decision will be final and not subject to a lawsuit.
So when the Death Panel denies your Cancer Treatment, like in the UK, and Pays for marriage Counseling instead. Guess What..
You have no Choice but to Die.

"Orthodox Priest Daniil Sysoyev was assassinated in Moscow at night of November 19. The crime was most likely committed for religious reasons. The priest might have fallen the victim of Islamic radicals or sectarians, investigators say.
The unidentified assassin was wearing a doctor’s mask when he attacked the priest, Interfax reports. The criminal entered Holy Apostle Foma Temple in the south of Moscow on Thursday night, at about 10:40 p.m. It was a well-built tall man, eye-witnesses said. The eyewitnesses said that the man was of the Caucasian origin, although it is not clear yet, how they could come to such a conclusion.
The man rushed into the temple and shouted: “Who is Sysoyev here?” The 35-year-old priest came forward, the attacker pulled out a gun with a silencer and shot him in the neck and in the head. The assassin left the crime scene walking – he was not running.
Father Daniil died at hospital about an hour later. The priest had a wife and three children.
Daniil Sysoyev was born on January 12, 1974 in Moscow. He graduated from the Moscow Spiritual Academy. The priest was mostly dealing with missionary activities. He particularly founded a school for street preachers in Moscow.
Sysoyev also was an active opponent to Muslims. For example, he conducted two public disputes with former Orthodox priest Vyacheslav Polosin, who converted to Islam. Sysoyev published a book “Marriage with a Muslim” in which he wrote that God and the Church condemned marriages concluded with Christians and non-Christians.
Radical religious groups started threatening Daniil Sysoyev four years ago. They were sending emails threatening him to “cut his head off and let his guts out”. It was also reported that Islamic groups had sentenced the Orthodox priest to death. Last year, a Muslim man called the temple, in which Sysoyev was serving, and said that the priest would be killed if he continued to publicly express his negative attitude to Islam.
Sysoyev was forced to address to Russia’s Federal Security Bureau twice, asking for help."

"Right now, Sarah Palin is on a highly publicized, nationwide book tour, attacking President Obama and his plan for health reform at every turn.
It's dangerous. Remember, this is the person who coined the term "Death Panels" -- and opened the flood gates for months of false attacks by special interests and partisan extremists.
Whatever lie comes next will be widely covered by the media, then constantly echoed by right-wing attack groups and others who are trying to defeat reform.
As we approach the final sprint on health reform, we can't afford more deception and delay. We need to be ready for anything -- and have the resources to respond with ads, events, and calls to Congress when the attacks come.
So we're setting a big goal: $500,000 in the next week to help push back against Sarah Palin and her allies. Please chip in $5 or more to help reach our goal.
Earlier this month, Palin publicly said that she hopes health reform will be "dead on arrival." And since then, she's been working fiercely toward that goal.
On Tuesday, Palin went on Rush Limbaugh's radio show where she outrageously -- and falsely -- suggested that Americans could "face jail time as punishment" if they don't buy insurance.
Palin has many more interviews scheduled on Hannity and other conservative shows in the next few weeks, with more platforms to go after the President. As soon as she does, the rest of our opponents will likely parrot those attacks.
We need to be prepared. And we're counting on you help. Can you chip in $5 or more?

The founder of Public Allies is a Woman by the name of Vannessa Kirsch.
Vannessa Kirsch began Public Allies in 1991 which was a Youth-Service program in Washington D.C. She Graduated from Tuft College but wasn't admitted because of her Good Grades, Just the Opposite. During an Interview she admits that Her Grades were Terrible, but she wrote a Heart Felt Letter to the Dean of Admissions:
"Everybody told me that I wasn't going to get into the school that I wanted to attend," Kirsch says. "I wrote to Tufts, 'Look, my scores are terrible. But I really want to go to Tufts.' It was a heartfelt letter. I just wanted them to know how badly I wanted to get in -- and I did."
Kirsch also served on the Micheal Dukakis Presidential Campaign in 1988.
In 1996 Vanessa Kirsch also created an organization called New Profit Inc. New Profit Inc is a "Consulting Firm" for Non-for-Profit organizations. A member of New Profit Inc will sit on the Board of Directors to ensure that the Non-For-Profit stays on on target and Gets "groomed" properly.
In an Article written by Kirsch titled "The Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship", She lays out the case for more Government involvement in "Service" programs and "Social entrepreneurs":
"In partnership with government, social entrepreneurs can augment their ability to generate and implement transformative, cost-effective solutions to the most challenging societal problems facing our nation and the world. According to Vanessa Kirsch, president of New Profit Inc. and co-chair of America Forward, “Every day, social entrepreneurs are developing and implementing innovative solutions to meet our country's domestic challenges, and they are achieving greater results with fewer resources. Just as public investment has supported major initiatives in the past, a future president—and other city, state, and federal administrations—can support social entrepreneurs and their effective solutions and, in doing so, effect measurable change in our nation.”
The Three things that Vanessa Feels that the Politicians should work from in order to bring about Social Change are:
• Lay the foundation for a new era of social entrepreneurship.
• Set policy to enable and encourage social entrepreneurship.
• Develop financial and non-financial resources for social entrepreneurship.
Kirsch not only Talks the Talk when it comes to Government helping "Service" Programs, but she Walks the Walk, since Public Allies receives quite a Bit of help through the Governmental funded organization Americorp. Here is a Video showing an Event where some volunteers are sworn into Public Allies, but are wearing Americorp Shirts and even admit they are apart of Americorp:
Here is Audio from the Glenn Beck Show in 2008 talking about the Connections between Public Allies and Obama:
Earlier this year the President signed into law the Kennedy Serve America Act. This Bill spawned alot of Controversy because it originally contained a "Mandatory Service" clause that would force your Kids to serve in a Government "Service Program" for a number of years. This Clause was removed after Millions of people became outraged and called their representatives in Washington.
One of the Organizations that supported the Controversial Mandatory Service Bill was an Organization called America Forward. According to a Blog Posting on America Forward's website, they begged it's members to help pass the Bill:
"Support the Serve America Act: Call Your Senators
Wed, Mar 25, 2009
Legislation, Serve America Act
Update March 27, 2009: The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act passed.
The Senate will vote this week on the Serve America Act – a piece of legislation which will transform the way government partners with social innovators to solve our nation’s most difficult problems, and create opportunities for Americans of all ages to participate in national service. Now, more than ever, we need to work together to find creative, effective, solutions to the challenges we face.
We need your help in passing this important legislation! Call your senators and ask them to vote YES on S. 277, the Serve America Act."
Why am I talking about America Forward? Because the Co-Chair of America Forward is Vannessa Kirsch.
But America Forward was not the Only Organization to Support the Mandatory Service Bill.
Several Organizations had an actual hand in creating the legislation and those are Be the Change and City Year.
Be the Change and City Year were founded by a man named Alan Khazei, the Husband of Vannessa Kirsch.
In Part III of Following the Bread Crumbs, I will show you the proof that Alan Khazei not only had a hand in creating the "Kennedy Serve America" Bill, but how he once had a Dream for "Mandatory National Service".
Stay Tuned, the Best Part is yet to come...

Normally the Democrats have limited their tactic of Class Warfare to the debate on Health care, but according to an Article in Bloomberg, all of that has changed.
Democratic Senator Carl Levin, has suggested that a New Higher income tax be levied on the "Upper Class" in order to pay for the War:
"An “additional income tax to the upper brackets, folks earning more than $200,000 or $250,000” a year, could fund more troops, Levin, a Michigan Democrat, said in an interview for Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital With Al Hunt,” airing this weekend."
While I Agree that we need to fund our Troops at War, I differ on how to pay for it. I suggest instead of spending all of that Money on Government Health Care, why not spend it on the Troops instead in order to speed up the War, Win and bring our Troops home.
But then again, when they pass this New Tax, does anyone really think it is actually for the Troops? The Politicians are just using the Troops as an excuse to create a tax that they are going to use to make the Health Care Bill "Deficit Neutral".
Just like the money Collected for Social Security, this New Tax will never be used for the Troops but instead will go to into the "General Fund".
There will be no "Lock Box" for these New taxes Collected for the Troops....
Just like there is no "Lock Box" for Social Security.

According to an Article on the Hill, Republican, Tom Coburn, has just rolled over on his decision to force the reading of the 2,000 + Page Senate Health Care Bill. Instead he has waved this "threat" so that a Vote could take place tomorrow night on the Bill in order to allow the Senators a Chance to get home for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
If the Reading of the Bill would have taken place then the Senators may have been forced to stay in session through next Wednesday.

If that First sentence was confusing, wait until you read the Posting on the White House blog.
According to an Article on the White House Blog titled:
"Reality Check: Beware What “Critics Say” on Reform and Mammograms"
The White House Shoots themselves in the Foot when they write this:
"Isn’t this the first step toward denying coverage for mammograms?
No. The Task force is an independent panel of experts in prevention and primary care that evaluates available evidence and makes recommendations about effective clinical preventive services based on scientific information. Under the health insurance reform legislation, the USPTF would have no power to deny insurance coverage in any way. Their recommendations would be used in health reform to identify effective clinical preventive services."
So the Critics of the New Government Recommendation on Mammograms are Claiming that this is the First Step to rationing. But the White House says "No" Claiming that the Task Force has no Real Power. But the last Sentence admits that the Recommendation Will be used to Decide Who gets Mammograms when they say:
"(But)Their recommendations would be used in health reform to identify effective clinical preventive services."
So the Task Force may not have any Power to deny you Coverage , but the Government Health Care Reform Program(PublicOption) is Going to USE the Task Force's recommendation, that Mammograms before the age of 50 is Not an effective preventative measure, to deny you services. Catch that?
The Administration is Saying that the Task Force has no power to Deny you Coverage, but the Government Will be Using their 'Recommendations' to determine what will be considered "Effective Preventative Services". They are Admitting that this IS Rationing at the same time they are Denying it.
This is how the President can Sleep at night. They tell you the Truth, but hide it behind Large and Complicated Sentences because they figure you are too Stupid to notice.
Elitists....Gotta love them....

But the Connections of the Communist Party and the Political Left did not being or end with President Obama. The relationship of the Communists and other leftest Organizations has been going on for years, which has shaped what the Left has become today.
During the Great Depression the Communist Party had major influence over the creation of many of the Labor Unions in the nation and numbered Hundreds of Thousands of Proud members. The Communist Party became splintered due to some infighting and disillusionment of the "Cause" in the 50's. Former members of the Communist Party then Formed many of the Leftest organizations today including the Progressive Party.
Even though the Communists in America suffered under the MacCarthy era of the "Red Scare" where people were put on lists or even arrested for their association with the Communist Party, the Communist movement in America lived on with some outside help. The FBI has Chronicled how the Communist Party in America was funded and even Controlled by the Former Soviet Union from the late 1950's all the way up to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
But just because the Soviet Socialist Republic ceased to exist, didn't mean the American Communist went away as well. The Communist Party is alive and well today helping to shape the Policy of the Left and has strong influence in Many of those Leftest Organizations that were once founded by Former Communist Party members earlier last Century.
For Example, the Communist Party USA, the largest Communist Group in the United States, has teamed up with Unions to help elect Democrats to Office.
According to the Communist Party USA website, the 2004 Presidential Elections were a time of Huge Cooperation between the Unions,Organizations like ACORN and the Communist Party. The Communist Author of the Article, from the Communist Party USA webiste, bragged about the dealings with Groups Like SEIU, NOW and even how ACORN and the Working Family's Party called upon them as members of the "Family":
"Two months later, on January 31, in this hall, we held an extraordinary national conference which established our framework for the 2004 elections. The conference was extraordinary because of the turnout of 250 plus multi-racial, multi-national activists from states large and small across our land. It was extraordinary because of the message of leaders from other organizations who came and called upon us, that our presence was much needed as Communists.
Remember the president of NY NOW telling us she wanted to see lots of red flags at the March for Women’s Lives. And the chair of ACORN and Working Families Party who called upon us as family to make our contribution known. Did we respond? YES, we responded!
Across the country, we rolled up our sleeves, in swing states and so-called safe states. In voter registration drives, local races and Congressional battlegrounds. Walking precincts and working phone banks out of union halls. In presidential battleground states from Ohio, Missouri, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Minnesota and New Hampshire, our folks were quickly tapped to help lead the work."
The Communist Article even went on to explain How they worked with their "family members":
"We worked on local campaigns, knocked on hundreds of doors and made thousands of phone calls with the AFL-CIO, ACT and others. We learned a lot and hopefully convinced some voters. I will always remember the LTV steel workers whose jobs had gone, very angry, very worried and also very appreciative that Labor Council volunteers were at their door.
In Missouri, comrades had the remarkable experience of teaming up with SEIU and Planned Parenthood to door-knock in the heat and humidity campaigning for John Bowman, and then go on to win. It felt like Mississippi Summer in the 1960's.
The effort was so successful we expanded into the fall, with 72 more Party and YCLers(Young Communist League), including 47 to Ohio and teams to Florida, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Michigan, and New Hampshire.
We set the bar high with our goal of 100. In the end, over 147 participated. These numbers do not include union buses organized by comrades from Illinois to Wisconsin, Ohio and Missouri, and the many Party and YCL members who traveled to the Mid-West with union or other mobilizations from the East Coast states.
It must be brought out that Sam Webb took the summer and fall to travel continuously from battleground state to battleground state, meeting with districts and clubs, shoring up the Party, outreaching to friends and readers, and knocking on doors as a volunteer for the labor movement.
We developed a specific plan for election day, with national staff placed strategically in OH, FL, PA and WI, and regional efforts in AZ and NH. We helped bring voters to the polls, served as election protection observers, and just did whatever needed to be done. "
2004 was a busy Year for the Communist Party, they not only helped in National Campaigns, but State and Local as well. The Communists even played a Part in helping to Elect Obama to the U.S. Senate:
"ILL: 27 new members and an increase in PWW/NM bundles to 2500 a week. This in the process of participating in the movement from Illinois to Wisconsin to put that state over the top for Kerry, participating in the historic election of Barak Obama to the US Senate, and the successful campaign of Melissa Bean, defeating incumbent Republican Congressman Philip Crane."
In New York, the Party made a special contribution, participating with the Working Families Party campaign to elect Frank Barbaro to Congress. 120,000 people voted for John Kerry on the Working Families line; David Soares became the first African American elected to county wide office upstate, for Albany District Attorney; and Brian Higgins defeated a Republican incumbent for Congress in the Buffalo area.
In Connecticut, a new club and door-to-door PWW route was formed in the 2nd Congressional District as part of a hard fought effort to defeat a Republican incumbent. 66 Working Families Party candidates won minor party ballot status in State Legislature and State Senate districts, including two who are here today.
In New Jersey comrades campaigned with a candidate for Town Committee, located in an important swing Congressional District. She got 42% of the vote in a small Republican town where the Republican candidate was the Mayor. She has now been asked to run for School Board.
In Florida, where Noel participated in the bus tour across the state to raise the minimum wage, and in Nevada, voters overwhelmingly favored a $1 increase to $6.15 an hour.
In New Mexico, new friends in the labor movement work with the club, which helped initiate the Bush Out the Door campaign, and the election of a state legislator.
In Kentucky, a new club was formed for the first time in many years."
But that is not all that Year, the Communist Party was well Represented at Leftest National Conferences and Protests all the way up to Election time. Here is a List of the Events the Communist Party took part in:
March for Womens Lives
Take Back America
Union conventions including AFSCME, SEIU, Unity convention of UNITE HERE, NEA
MoveOn house parties
Events surrounding the Democrat and Republican conventions
The World Says No to the Bush Agenda protest of half a million in NYC.
This Coalition formed in 2004 grew to include more leftest organizations and in 2008 they all worked with a Common Goal, to remove Republicans and increase the Democrat Majority in Congress. Here is another Article from the Communist Party USA website that describes these efforts:
"This is a few words, building on the approach in those reports, about our role in the 2008 elections -- a fight for the future of our country and the planet.
On Friday, I attended a funeral. It was for 24 year old Army Pfc Andre Craig, an African American soldier from New Haven killed in Iraq. He had just come off leave to see his new baby.
On the day he was killed, he had called five relatives to say that he was on continuous 24 hour missions and was too exhausted to perform.
We wrote to the family that we are working so hard to end this war, and we are heartbroken about what has happened.
It is precisely to stop such horrible tragedies that we have adopted broad, flexible tactics to isolate the ultra-right in Congress combined with mass action.
Ending the war and bringing all our troops home is why our strategic priority, along with that of labor, women, African American, Latino and women voters, is to end Republican control of the White House and increase the margin in Congress for Democrats."
The Communist Author went on to say that Electing Democrats to the White House will not be an issue since the Democrats and the Communist Progressives are "Fundamentally" the same:
"Fundamentally, there is no contradiction between our main goal of a Democratic White House and bigger majority in Congress, and supporting pro-labor progressives in primaries. One can help the other."
As you can see the Communist Party has had a Major Influence over the Founding of Leftest Groups, Unions and even have helped Elect Democrats as recently as 2008.
But one of the organizations where Communists have had no Problem with Joining and Influencing Openly is Jobs with Justice.
I will Publish an article in the Next few days showing the many Connections and Cooperation's between the Special Interest Group Jobs with Justice, the Communist Party USA.
This Article is Just the tip of the Iceberg.
For the Communist Party, the Unions and the Democrats that support them, consider this Article a Shot across your Bow...

My Friend and Fellow Blogger from 24th State is doing a Series of Articles on the Communist Connections in Missouri. They are well worth reading:
"The bill would give a proposed new council of regulators the right to dismantle firms whose scale could hurt the economy - even if they are healthy."
This Bill appears to create a Permanent "Stimulus" for Banks and would give the Power to the Federal Government to Control Banks more easily.
The Bill still has to be voted on in the House and the Senate before it becomes law.
But Remember, the Politicians in Washington keep telling us they Don't want to Do this, but because of the "Crisis" they have to....

"Since the 2008 election of Barack Obama, the country's first African American president, a wave of anger, public incivility, rising conspiracy theories and a climate of fervor has swept the nation says the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in a new study.
The report, Rage Grows in America: Anti-Government Conspiracies finds that rumors about gun confiscation, tax policies, and extreme comparisons of the Obama administration to Nazi Germany are contributing to a toxic atmosphere of rage in America.
"In the year since we marked the historic election of the nation's first African American president we have seen a tremendous amount of anger and hostility," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director. In a press release Foxman continues, "There is a toxic atmosphere of rage in America being witnessed at many levels, and it raises fundamental questions for our society."
Foxman points out, "While not all of America has bought into these conspiracies, they seem to be seeping more and more into the mainstream. And since many of these expressions are interconnected in some significant ways, we wanted to try and connect the dots and ask the basic questions of why the anger, why now, and where it might lead."
This characterization of anti-government hostility is fueled by a shared belief that the Obama administration actually poses a threat to the future of the U.S., says the report. Some accuse Obama of plotting to bring socialism to the country, while others claim he is trying to bring about Nazism or fascism.
Many extremists believe Obama is instilling a sinister agenda that plans to trample on individual freedoms and civil liberties due to his economic and social policies. Anti-government activists are using the issue of health care reform as a rallying point accusing the Obama administration of implementing dark designs ranging from "socialized medicine" to "death panels."
Some of these assertions are motivated by prejudice, but more common is an intense strain of anti-government distrust and anger, colored by a streak of paranoia and belief in conspiracies, says the study.
Such resentment and hostility, if it continues to grow in intensity and scope, may result in an increase in anti-government extremists and the potential for a rise of violent anti-government acts.
"The fact that these anti-government sentiments are coming from such a broad spectrum makes it more likely that some individuals will become so inflamed with anger that they will move farther toward the fringes," said Robert G. Sugarman, ADL national chair. "This could result not only in the swelling of the ranks of anti-government extremist groups and movements, but might give rise to more individuals who are willing to act on their anger," he said.
The report argues anti-government anger first became apparent in the spring of 2009 when conservative groups and local activists organized a nationwide series of rallies dubbed "Tea Parties." A common theme that somehow Obama had "stolen" the country from Americans was universal at such events.
More evidence of similar animosity appeared in the summer when a variety of protests and planned disruptions occurred at town hall meetings organized by lawmakers across the country to discuss health care reform. Such actions became a fertile ground for anti-Obama protests and stunts with some angrily launching verbal attacks against the president. Some explicitly compared the Obama administration and its policies to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.
The rising tide of dissident gave a "green light" to anti-Obama hostility particularly when South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson shouted "You lie!" to Obama during a live speech to Congress in September.
A large rally in Washington, D.C. against Obama's policies displayed racist imagery and ideas that implicitly or explicitly promoted violence.
Segments of the mainstream media have also played a surprisingly active role in generating such sentiments including most notably by radio and television host Glenn Beck. He, along with many of his guests has made a habit of demonizing the Obama administration. Beck has acted as "fearmonger-in-chief," says the ADL, raising anxiety about and distrust towards the current government.
Other troubling expressions include the "Birther" movement, which rapidly spread during and after the 2008 election, targeted at Obama himself. The so-called "Birthers" argue that Obama is not a legitimate president because he allegedly was not born in the U.S. (as the Constitution requires), but rather in Kenya.
The report details different areas of anti-government tendencies such as: leading conspiracy theorists on social networking sites alleging dark tales of the federal government declaring martial law; the resurgence of the militia movement, which has a long history of criminal activity; and government resisters, groups that are promoting implicit or explicit armed resistance that have appropriated an idealized version of the Revolutionary War history for their own purposes.
The ADL, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.

"Senate Democrats have scheduled a 5 p.m. EST meeting in which Reid will brief them on the bill, and on the cost estimates provided by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office."
A Vote to Open debate on the Bill could come as early as Friday.
Let us just hope that the Senate has the courtesy to not execute the Vote in the Wee Hours of the night, like the House Did with their Bill.
But then again, if the Quiet Release of the Senate Bill is any indication, I wouldn't hold my Breath.

Chairman of Government Website Says: "He Can Not Certify Jobs Numbers Claimed by Gov Website Are Accurate."
A Republican Representative from California posed some questions that had some interesting answers:
"Earl Devaney, the chairman of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, responded to questions posed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., late yesterday to say the board can’t vouch for the numbers submitted by recipients of stimulus funding.
“Your letter specifically asks if I am able to certify that the number of jobs reported as created/saved on Recovery.gov is accurate and auditable. No, I am not able to make this certification,” Devaney wrote, in a letter provided to ABC News."
So the only Results that we can Certify from the Stimulus is that the Federal Government Now owns a Much larger Part of the "Free market", from Banks to Car makers.

"The president, who is in Beijing as part of his tour through several Asian countries to address economic challenges, spoke candidly about the precarious balancing act his administration is trying to perform. He wants to spend money to kick-start the economy, but at the same time is in danger of creating too much red ink.
"There may be some tax provisions that can encourage businesses to hire sooner rather than sitting on the sidelines. So we're taking a look at those," Obama told Fox News' Major Garrett.
"I think it is important, though, to recognize if we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point, people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession."

According to an Article on the Telegraph.com, the U.N. has released a new Study that suggest if we are forced to have less children then the effects of Global Warming(Climate Change) will be reduced:

Can anyone say, "Forced Abortions"? The First few sentences of the Article reek of suggestions of Abortions:
"The United Nations Population Fund said if women are empowered to take control of their reproductive health they may choose to have fewer children, reducing pressure on resources and the environment. "
Actually the "study" suggests that Abortion may be the best way to control "Population":
"The 94-page State of the World Population Report 2009 calls for any deal on climate change coming out of the UN summit in Copenhagen this December to include measures to empower women and improve access to family planning services."
Women, like men, already are "empowered" to take control of their Reproductive Health. It's usually refereed to as Abstinence and Condoms. There is nothing that the "Women" needs to empower herself, but the Government does.
The Government's of the World Need the Power to Force their Citizens to have Abortions and Climate Change is the Best 'reason' for them to try and acquire that power, through a Climate Change Deal in Copenhagen.

The AP reported today that opponents of reform, led by the U.S. Chamber, have poured $24 million into an advertising onslaught in the last month alone. The fact is, we will be outspent by corporate special interests. But we can do something corporate American can't - we can talk to fellow voters, and have personal conversations about health care.
We elected Barack Obama, in part, by calling tens of thousands of voters in key "swing states." This year is no different. Voters in Arkansas, Nebraska, Connecticut and Louisiana need to hear from us about what's happening on health insurance reform. I hope you'll adopt-a-state, and start recruiting for your team today.
P.S. If you live in one of our health care "swing states," even better! Adopt your own state, and start recruiting friends and family to join. "

Here is what took place, according to an Article on the Hill:
"Hoffman appeared on conservative commenatator Glenn Beck's radio show this afternoon. Beck asked the him if he would "unconcede."
"Yes, if I knew this information at the election night, I would not have conceded," Hoffman said. Beck asked him again if he was "unconceding" and Hoffman replied, "If that’s possible, yes."
This is due to the fact that New York Officials are still counting over 10,000 absentee ballots and the Gap between the two Candidates has reduced from 5,000 to a little over 2,000.
Hoffman would have to take 65% of the Absentee ballots and admits it would be a long Shot.
