Riyaz Comments on GM and Delorean

See http://mitchell-langbert.blogspot.com/2008/11/rick-waggoners-tin-cup.html

Prof. Langbert,

I was a student from your MBA class in Spring 08 at Stern.

You had referred to a book - "On A Clear Day You Can See General Motors" by John DeLorean. I had read the book and looking at the current auto industry crisis I couldnt help but wonder how terrible the management at GM has been for such a long time. Here's a quote from the book -

"our inability to compete with the foreign manufacturers is more due to management failure than anything else... past managements spent our lush advantage extravagantly...the system and management are stifling initiative...leadership and innovation are impossible... not only are these people of no help, most of what they do is wrong... after a short time, the isolated executives would find their markets taken away by competitors who were attuned to the wants and needs of the public and who were exercising their franchises to operate responsibly..."

I'd like to hear your views on the topic and if you will publish them on your blog.

Thanks,
Riyaz

Banking Idiocracy

Almost 100 years ago the nation made a decision to permit bankers to control the nation's money supply. This did not have to be, and it does not have to be now. The principle of "easy money" had been publicly rejected in 1896, when William Jennings Bryan, who favored "free silver", lost to William McKinley, who continued the hard money policies of the late nineteenth century, the period of America's greatest economic growth and a period of deflation.

In 1913, Woodrow Wilson established the Federal Reserve Bank under the guidance of JP Morgan's associates (Morgan had died that year, and some argue that the Federal Reserve is just an institutional embodiment of JP Morgan himself). A number of leading bankers associated with Morgan had met in 1910 on Jekyll Island in Georgia and drafted a plan that served as the basis for the Federal Reserve Bank. These bankers included "Frank A. Vanderlip of National City (now Citibank), Henry P. Davison from the Morgan Bank and Paul Warburg of the Kuhn, Loeb investment house."*

Banks need not be granted authority over the creation of money. Instead, there could be a steady increase in the money supply created by general distribution to the public or to borrowers selected by the Treasury Department or private investors. Alternatively, for the nation's most productive years the gold standard was in place. Yet another alternative would be competitive money supplies which existed before the National Banking Act passed during the Civil War. There is no empirical evidence that any of these alternatives would work worse than the current system.

The current system is based on the premise that professional bankers are better equipped to assess investment risk than would be the alternatives, and that their wisdom is greater than the market-neutral approach of a gold standard or broad distribution of new money.

Recent events contradict this claim. From what I can see of the descriptions of what has gone on in the banking world, the banking world is dominated by nincompoops who are worse-equipped to allocate credit than would be a random sample of Americans taken from the Yahoo! phone directory.

The story that I have heard is that first, bankers were willing to lend to non-credit-worthy borrowers because (a) real estate never goes down and/or (b) because the Democrats said they should. Now, I hear, despite a doubling of the money supply, the bankers are afraid to lend money to each other or to borrowers because they made the bad decisions a few years ago. This phenomenon is said to occur despite the ability and availability of loan money directly from the Federal Reserve Bank itself. In other words, the Fed has created a huge amount of new money, is willing to lend to the banks directly, and yet the banks are afraid to borrow. A few years ago, they were willing to lend $200,000 to hair dressers making $8 per hour. Stupidity on this scale exceeds even the market frenzy concerning the Internet stocks that the Federal Reserve and the banking system also created.

This is not a monetary system. This is a sacking of the monetary system by a federally enforced idiocracy.

Perhaps it is time to reconsider the odd claim that bankers are better equipped to decide on how to manage the nation's money supply than would be a neutral, market-based rule like a gold standard. As an institution, the Federal Reserve Bank has come to look like a barbaric relic, and its officers and owners among the commercial banks an idiocracy.

Should I Buy this Car?--Living Well Is the Best Revenge


With all the recent talk about depression, stock market declines and the like, perhaps it is time for me to finally move up in the car market to the low-tier luxury category. Is this a good choice? Comments? The biggest drawback is that I drive on country roads alot, and this is more of a city car.

http://www.edmunds.com/new/2009/lexus/es350/101038874/options.html#

What Edmunds.com says

The 2009 Lexus ES 350, with its plush ride, strong performance and beautiful interior, is a fine choice for an entry-level luxury sedan.

Pros

Powerful and velvety-smooth V6, plush ride, sumptuous interior, admirable crashworthiness.

Cons

Options can be expensive.

What's New for 2009

For 2009, the Lexus ES 350 is essentially unchanged.

Edmunds review is here.

>Introduction

Surveying the scene in the entry-level luxury sedan segment, one could be forgiven for assuming that sportiness is the name of the game. There are sport-tuned suspensions, sport modes for transmissions and sport appearance packages providing eye candy such as fancier wheels and spoilers. But what about average luxury sedan buyers -- you know, people who value their cars mostly as respites from the daily grind? Are they being elbowed out in the rush to register faster slalom speeds and higher G-forces on the skid pad?

The truth is, while sportiness may be sexy these days, luxuriousness still brings home the bacon. A case in point is the 2009 Lexus ES 350. Here's a sedan that has no pretensions about being athletic, yet shoppers continually make it one of the best-selling luxury sedans around. It's the anti-sport sedan, and apparently that suits many well-heeled drivers just fine.

The ES 350's core virtues are readily apparent. A classy-looking cabin stocked with soft leather and high-quality materials greets every occupant, and road imperfections always seem a few layers of isolation away. As for ambient noise, this Lexus is quieter than thousands of pounds of moving metal have any right to be. The superb corporate six-cylinder -- pumping out 272 horsepower in this application -- never sounds taxed, yet it moves the ES out with impressive alacrity. In short, the ES 350 is all about coddling its guests, which is a pretty appealing proposition after a long day at the office.

As far as weaknesses go, the ES 350 wears them on its sleeve. Looking for a back roads dance partner? The softly sprung ES doesn't tango. Want to keep the price down? Better avoid those pricey option packages. And if you desire an exclusive luxury sedan that's not based on a plebian family hauler, the ES just won't do, as it's an extensively revised Toyota Camry at heart.

Otherwise, the 2009 Lexus ES 350 is hard to beat as an entry-level luxury offering. Still, there are rivals worth looking at -- the Hyundai Genesis sedan offers rear-wheel drive and a choice of V6 or V8 power plants for roughly ES money. And if you'd like some sporting flavor in your luxury sedan, there's Acura's redesigned TL as well as Infiniti's G35. Nonetheless, Lexus deserves credit for the ES 350's winning formula. It's an extremely comfortable, finely finished entry-level luxury sedan, and that should be enough to keep it near the top of numerous shopping lists.


For Pricing information, see our Pricing page.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2009 Lexus ES 350 is an entry-level luxury sedan that comes in one well-equipped trim level. Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, 10-way power front seats, real wood accents, keyless entry/ignition, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, a trip computer, dual-zone automatic climate control, one-touch up/down windows all around and an eight-speaker audio system with a six-CD changer and an auxiliary audio jack.

Numerous additional accoutrements are offered via a number of available (and usually pricey) packages. Highlights include chrome wheels, park assist, leather seating, heated/ventilated front seats, adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, front seats with memory, adaptive xenon HID headlights, a navigation system (with voice activation and a rearview camera), a premium 14-speaker Mark Levinson surround-sound audio and video system, satellite radio and a power rear sunshade.


For more Style information, see our Compare Styles page.

Powertrains and Performance

The 2009 Lexus ES 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that pumps out a turbine-smooth 272 hp and 254 pound-feet of torque. This power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability. In performance testing, this tandem spirits the ES 350 to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds. EPA fuel economy estimates are above average, at 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined.

For more Performance Data, see our Specifications page.

Safety

Antilock disc brakes, stability control and a full array of airbags (including dual front knee, front-seat side and full-length side curtain) are all standard on the 2009 Lexus ES 350. Rear-seat side airbags and a pre-collision system are optional. The latter option comes into play when an impending collision is sensed (via the components used for the optional adaptive cruise control system), which automatically tightens the seatbelts and applies full-power braking when the driver presses the pedal.

In government crash tests, the ES 350 scored five stars (the highest score possible) in the frontal-impact category for both driver and passenger. In side-impact tests, the Lexus scored five stars for front-occupant protection and four for rear-occupant protection. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests, the ES 350 netted top-notch "Good" ratings.


For more Safety information, see our Safety page.

Interior Design and Special Features

Since sportiness isn't part of the equation, the ES 350's engineers had plenty of time to devote to making the cabin as luxurious as possible. For the most part, they've succeeded in grand style, as the ES has one of the most comfortable and inviting interiors south of $40,000. Materials quality is absolutely top-shelf, as is build quality. Moreover, the optional ventilated seats are among the best we've experienced. The ES 350 also offers a roomy backseat and a 14.7-cubic-foot trunk with a cargo pass-through.

For more Interior Features information, see our Specifications page.

Driving Impressions

The 2009 Lexus ES 350 provides an isolated, pillow-soft ride, and most buyers won't drive the ES aggressively enough to be disappointed with its unathletic handling. Road, wind and engine noise are negligible -- the ES is one of the quietest cars we've ever tested at freeway cruising speeds, which is all the more impressive given that it's one of Lexus' most affordable offerings.

Gameplaying Re Obama Birth Certificate Reflects on Courts

A poster on this site has recommended Douglas V. Gibbs's Blog Talk Radio podcast . Doug's radio show is good and it would be worth your time to listen.

Doug's key point is that President-elect Obama's refusal to release his vault copy birth certificate reflects on his character. Even if there's nothing wrong with it, and that may or may not be so, a man of integrity would not play games. Barack Obama is a serial liar.

As well, the pissant propgandists at NBC, Fox et al. have refused to ask Mr. Obama to come clean. Without a competent media, which the United States lacks, democracy cannot function. Let us dust off our logic textbooks from college and do a modus ponens deduction.

1. If a nation does not have a competent, independent and honest media, then it cannot have a functioning democracy.
2. America does not have a competent, independent and honest media.
3. Therefore, America does not have a functioning democracy.

Moreover, the US court system is broken. The courts do not just interpret statutory law, which in this case is obscure and uncertain. Nor do they just interpret prior judicial decisions and dicta in what is called common law. Courts are also concerned with what is called equity. This is how wikipedia defines equity:

"Equity is the name given to the set of legal principles, in jurisdictions following the English common law tradition, which supplement strict rules of law where their application would operate harshly, so as to achieve what is sometimes referred to as 'natural justice.' It is often confusingly contrasted with "law", which in this context refers to 'statutory law' (the laws enacted by a legislature, such as the United States Congress), and 'common law' (the principles established by judges when they decide cases)... in general, a litigant cannot obtain equitable relief unless there is 'no adequate remedy at law'—that is, a court will not grant an injunction unless monetary damages are an insufficient remedy for the injury in question. Law courts also enter orders, called "writs" (such as a writ of habeas corpus) but they are less flexible and less easily obtained than an injunction...the plaintiff requests an injunction, declaratory judgment, specific performance or modification of contract, or other non-monetary relief, the claim would usually be one in equity...A final important distinction between law and equity is the source of the rules governing the decisions. In law, decisions are made by reference to legal doctrines or statutes. In contrast, equity, with its emphasis on fairness and flexibility, has only general guides known as the maxims of equity. As noted below, a historic criticism of equity as it developed was that it had no fixed rules of its own, with the Lord Chancellor from time to time judging in the main according to his own conscience. As time went on the rules of equity did lose much of their flexibility and from the 17th century onwards equity was rapidly consolidated into a system of precedents much like its cousin common law.

Now, why are courts reluctant to mandate release of the Obama vault copy birth certificate under equity? What principle at equity overcomes the public's right to know about the background identification of a presidential candidate?

The Obama birth certificate accentuates multiple problems confronting American democracy.

First, there is the probability that a manipulative liar has been encouraged and supported in manipulating and lying by pissant propagandists and the courts. Second, American democracy does not function because there is pissant propaganda, not mass media. Third, the court system is broken and corrupt.

Douglas Gibbs does a good job on this radio show.

Obama Appoints Lobbyist

Bob Robbins just forwarded this Newsmax article by Jim Myers.

"President-elect Barack Obama’s selection of former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle for Secretary of Health and Human Services raises questions about Obama honoring his vow not to employ lobbyists in his administration.

Newsmax reported earlier that in November 2007, candidate Obama said of lobbyists: “I don’t take a dime of their money, and when I am president, they won’t find a job in my White House.”

But since leaving the U.S. Senate following an election loss in 2004, Daschle has been a highly paid adviser to healthcare clients at the law and lobbying firm Alston & Bird.

Although Daschle is not a registered lobbyist, he “provides strategic advice to the firm’s clients about how to influence government policy or actions,” The New York Times reports.

Those clients include Abbott Laboratories and HealthSouth.

Stephanie Cutter, a spokeswoman for the Obama transitional office, said: “If [Daschle] is asked to serve in the Obama administration, he will represent the interests of the president-elect and not his former clients.”

Footnote: The former senator’s wife, Linda Hall Daschle, is one of Washington’s top lobbyists, working mostly on behalf of airline-related companies.

President-elect Obama: Apocalypse Now

I had previously raised the question of whether President-Elect Barack Obama is the antichrist and in response Conservative Chloe provided a fascinating, in-depth analysis that showed that although he is not, he may be a apocalyptic aide-de-camp.

Dan Friedman has just forwarded an article that appeared in the Catholic News Agency website that quotes Cardinal James Francis Stafford, head of the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See, as describing President-elect Obama as:

“aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic”.

CNA has a tape of Cardinal Stafford's discussion (see below), which is worth hearing. Cardinal Stafford gives a perceptive analysis of Obama's posture and mannerism, and expresses grave concern about the President-elect's position on abortion.

Cardinal Stafford adds:

"America suffered a cultural earthquake.”

Dan Friedman writes:

>James Francis Cardinal Stafford is the Major Penitentiary of the Apostolic Penitentiary, which is the Vatican equivalent of a three-star general and a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. On Thursday he gave a talk at Catholic University and he had some unflattering observations about President-elect Barack Obama. No surprise the Cardinal pivoted off Obama's pro-abortion position. But beyond that, if you can ignore the tinny acoustics, listen to the Cardinal's very interesting analysis of Obama's use of language, his personality and physical characteristics. You don't have to be Catholic to appreciate their catholic implications.

Dunham-Related Conspiracy?

I just received this e-mail from Contrairimairi:

Mitchell,

I have been trying to trace back on some of these people. Some just don't seem to have ever existed, but MaBandla OYama is quite interesting. My brother noticed that if you change two letters in his name, he becomes MaYandla OBama.....maybe "Maya"? I haven't checked on that because, his name comes up in Africa. First, a company that had been brought back from the brink is laid at his feet. Within one year, it is an utter failure. Losses over a BILLION dollars! Then he moves on. One of the companies he becomes associated with has ALL of it's info, even archived info, "scrubbed" from the net. But, Look who he is now aligned with. Check what each of these individuals has as their "background" almost to a person!

SAA Names Deputy CEO, CFO Leaves {emphasis added by me}

November 3, 2003

South African Airways said Monday it had appointed former merchant banker and lawyer Oyama Mabandla as its new deputy chief executive officer and confirmed the resignation of its finance head.

"For the first time the airline has a deputy CEO. Mabandla is a strategic and visionary leader with sound commercial knowledge," the airline said in a statement.
Mabandla is viewed by many in the aviation industry as a possible successor to Chief Executive Andre Viljoen, whose term ends in 2006.

Until his appointment, Mabandla was the airline's head of strategy, revenue management and network planning. Before joining SAA, he worked as a merchant banker in London and Johannesburg. Mabandla is also a lawyer.

SAA also confirmed the resignation of its chief financial officer, Richard Forson, but gave no further details. Local newspapers had reported his departure but there had been no confirmation from the airline.

"The chief financial officer has resigned from the airline and is currently serving notice. His position will be filled in due course," SAA said.
Forson, responsible for treasury and structured finance, is credited by many in the industry as the driving force behind a turnaround at SAA, which saw it posting its first operating profit of ZAR446 million (USD$64.2 million) in the 2002/03 financial year.

The state-owned airline is reeling from a ZAR5.4 billion ($777.5 million) foreign currency loss that same year, however, after it hedged the rand at an average of 10.80/dollar over 10 years.

The hedging -- related to long-term obligations, such as future fuel purchases, loans and leases on aircraft -- pushed Africa's biggest airline into technical insolvency and forced the government to guarantee its debts.

SAA is controlled by state transport utility Transnet. The financial troubles at the domestic airline have resulted in Transnet's treasury boss being put on paid leave pending an investigation into the hedging and other transactions.
(Reuters)

Then, one year later:

http://news.airwise.com/stories/2004/11/1099472086.html


November 3, 2004
South African Airways (SAA) deputy chief executive Oyama Mabandla has resigned to pursue personal business interests, the airline said on Wednesday.
Mabandla's resignation comes as the state-owned carrier is battling its worst financial crisis after losing 8.6 billion rand (USD$1.39 billion) before tax in its last financial year due to an ill-fated decision to hedge against the rand.
He will leave Africa's biggest airline at the end of the current fiscal year which runs to March 31, 2005. Mabandla's departure follows that of former chief executive Andre Viljoen in August and chief financial officer Richard Forson in October last year. Mabandla was appointed the airline's deputy chief executive in November last year.

"I wish to take this opportunity to recognize Mr Mabandla's immense contribution to SAA especially in the transitional period when he had to exercise leadership leading to this point in our history as an airline," CEO Khaya Ngqula said in a statement.
Mabandla said he would be pursuing business interests "to take advantage of the economic tide that is sweeping our country".
(Reuters)

Mairi adds:

Here is where he ends up, and the people he has aligned with. Sorry, thought I had put them together. Mairi

http://www.vodacom.com/vodacom/investor_relations/company_profile/company_info_board.jsp


Mr Oyama Mabandla (44) Chairman
Appointed to the Board in 2006

Image BlockedOyama is a representative of Telkom and joined the Vodacom Board on January 1, 2006. He is executive chairman of the Langa Group, a corporate investment company. He is the former deputy Chief Executive Officer of South African Airways, where he also served as General Counsel and Executive Vice President for Strategy, Revenue Management and Network Planning. In the mid 90's Oyama worked as a merchant banker at Union Bank of Switzerland in London and Johannesburg. He later joined the Johannesburg Bar. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of California and a Juris Doctorate from Columbia University in New York City.



It says he also worked with "Langa Group" but their page and cached info is scrubbed. Look where he ends up next.....and look what most of them DO or HAVE DONE!

More On Dunham Real Estate

I just received the following e-mail from Keith1956. I have no idea of what any of this means but it's interesting. I wonder why Stanley Ann Dunham's name would be on real estate associated with the Grace Dodge Society, but it would be an interesting thing to find out.

>Mitchell

I have additional information concerning the address:

Name: S A Dunham
Address: 235 E 40Th St
City: New York
State: New York
Zip Code: 10016-0889.

The specific apartment number in which I received a hit using her SSN is 8F. There was a mortgage taken out on the home by Timothy J. A******* and Nang **. Both are males. This is according to the NY City ACRIS system: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dof/html/jump/acris.shtml

If you drill down, you can determine that the apt number is Block 1314 and Lot number 1067. The mortgage information is online. The curious thing is that Timothy J. A******* also lives at another address:

Timothy J A****** 106 Morningside Dr, New York, NY 10027
Phone: (212) 749-****. This address matches up with the mortgage that you can view online concerning the apt 8F.


This guy appears to be a college professor associated with the Grace Dodge Society. This organization has ties to Columbia University.

Keith

Keith1956 adds:

>Also I have dug a little deeper. I have not contacted Timothy J A******* to
confirm, but he currently lives at a different address in NY state. My guess
is this apt was an investment and he rented it to SAD. If you look up the
Grace Dodge Society, it is a group of what appears to be wealthy individuals
who leave charitable donations to the Society. He was very likely running a
credit check as I believe this was about the time she moved to NYC.

Your thoughts?

Thx!

Kenyan Ambassador Ogego Agrees that Barack Obama Was Born in Kenya

WRIF radio announcer Mike Clark asked (see minute 12:39) Kenyan Ambassador His Excellency Peter Ogego whether there would be a monument placed at Barack Obama's birthplace in Kenya (h/t Contrairimairi). Ogego says "yes". This was a leading question, of course, but still interesting.

>Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Peter Ogego, admitted in this radio interview that Barack Obama was born in Kenya!

When WRIF "Mike In The Morning" Mike Clark (Michigan Radio Talk Show) Co-Host asked if there was going to be a marker where Barack Obama was born in Kenya, the Kenya Ambassador Ogego said his birthplace in Kenya "is already an attraction."

Next question to Ambassador Ogego was: Will they put up a marker at Obama's birthplace there? Ogego affirmed: "it's already well known!"

His Excellency Peter Ogego, Kenyan Ambassador to the United States admitted in this radio interview that Barack Obama was born in Kenya!

Is There Real Estate Fraud Associated with the Dunham Name?

Two posters to my blog have raised the question of whether the Dunham family (Barack Obama's in-laws) or perhaps Obama's own family have engaged in real estate fraud. First, Contrairimairi, who prefers to remain anonymous, did property ownership searches and found Stanley Ann Dunham's name on real estate around the world beginning in years after her death. As well, there were inconsistencies with dates of death.

Second, an anonymous poster adds:

"No one person would have so many addresses in one lifetime and certainly not under each alias.

"The research has, quite by accident, opened the door to the world of organized real estate fraud and money laundering. Admittedly, charging the Dunhams and their presumed aliases and Stanley Ann and her aliases with complicity in this nation-destroying scam is a bold step forward and, journalistically, could be deemed premature."

It is obviously too soon to make any kind of allegation. Nevertheless, I wonder if the propagandists will investigate this story with the same zeal that they investigated the quality of Todd Palin's salmon.

Andy Martin Case Dismissed--Martin Hopes to Appeal

I just received this press release from Andy Martin:

Andy Martin hopes to appeal Honolulu court decision on Obama birth certificate

"Another court, another cover-up," says Andy Martin. "What is wrong with our country when someone can be 'elected' without providing access to the original copy of their birth certificate? Something is drastically wrong with our democracy, and every American will pay the price. We will be issuing a fund raising appeal to continue this battle on appeal. The claim that a president's birth certificate is secret is complete nonsense."

ANDY MARTIN
Executive Editor

"Factually Correct, Not
Politically Correct"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

INTERNET POWERHOUSE ANDY MARTIN PLANS TO APPEAL DISMISSAL OF BARACK OBAMA'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE LAWSUIT, SAYS HE HAS NOT YET RECEIVED A COPY

MARTIN SAYS JUDICIAL SYSTEM REFLECTS "CALLOUS DISREGARD" FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

(NEW YORK)(November 21, 2008) For those of you who are not familiar with the peculiar highways and byways of the judicial process, welcome to the strange ways of the court system in Hawai'i. Apparently my lawsuit in a Honolulu state court has been dismissed.

Unfortunately, I have not seen a copy of the decision. Despite the significance of the court order, I was not given a courtesy notice when it was entered in Honolulu, apparently late Wednesday, although I was in Honolulu all day on Wednesday.

Thursday all day I was traveling back to New York and was unavailable. I did not get back to New York until 8:00 A.M. Friday.

I was alerted by a reader's e-mail that something had happened, and went to the Honolulu Advertiser's web site where I found a complete story, http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/20081121/NEWS20/811210355/1001/localnewsfront.

Obviously I was unable to respond to phone calls while in the air, and when I checked my e-mails today the Advertiser reporter had not left a phone number to call him back.

The Court did not fax my office a copy and so I have no immediate way of seeing a copy of the decision. I assume the Advertiser's news report is a fair summary of the decision.

Depending on what the response is to a fund appeal, I will certainly appeal this decision to the Hawai'i Intermediate Court of Appeals. The trial court's interpretation of the relevant statute appears to be a wooden reading of the law. The claim that there is a lack of historical significance to the birth certificate of a president of the United States is a classic example of how utter nonsense can exist in the judicial system.

I will solicit input from my audience as to whether they feel that pursuit of the appeal is a worthwhile venture and will proceed accordingly.

I understand how 150 million Americans are frustrated by the callous disregard which the court system has shown for access to vital, basic information about Barack Obama, the "mystery man" who has been elected president by the "Mainstream Media of the United States."

However other than this mild criticism, I believe it is more appropriate to proceed through the judicial process, and that is the course I intend to follow on the issue of access to Barack Obama's original, typewritten 1961 original birth certificate.

Barack Obama Praised Bill Ayers Book

Becki of Political Incorrectness has found that Barack Obama wrote a book review of William Ayers's book in 1997:

"Barack Obama provided a glowing endorsement of a book by domestic terrorist William Ayers in the Dec. 21, 1997 Chicago Tribune."

"A month before the item appeared, on Nov. 20, 1997, Michelle Obama, then dean of student services and director of the University Community Service Center, held a panel at the University of Chicago that featured both Barack Obama and Ayers."

Ron Paul's Holocaust-Denying Supporters

There is a publication in Idaho called "The Idaho Observer". Someone referred to their site in a post on my blog. I checked it out. I notice that "Ron Paul's Campaign For Liberty" figures prominently on this website's front page. I typed the word "Jew" in their "search this site" engine on the left hand side of the page. This message from Google popped up:

>Offensive Search Results We're disturbed about these results as well. Please read our note here. www.google.com/explanation

I noticed the following article that appears in the April 2007 Idaho Observer

"Rules of Evidence Should Apply Evenly"

"It is interesting to wonder whether or not the "official" Holocaust story would have survived millions of people applying the rules of evidence had it occurred during the information age."

Rick Waggoner's Tin Cup

In the Wall Street Journal today, GM's CEO Rick Waggoner opines that GM should be paid welfare because it has laid off 52% of its hourly workforce since 2000 and because GM has "closed the quality and productivity gaps with the imports, as confirmed by J.D. Power and Associates". As well, a poster to my blog named Jason argues that "GM suffers a loss of $2,000 per vehicle sold. On the other hand Toyota whose employees are not part of the UAW earns a profit of about $1,200 per vehicle sold. If GM was able to operate with labor prices near Toyota’s it would have pocketed an additional $29,715,200,000."

If the problem is that serious, a bailout will not help. Nor is it correct that the fault is with the UAW.

I checked the JD Power ratings and the top quality ratings still go to Lexus and Toyota. The rating is ordinal rather than cardinal so it is difficult to precisely identiy the difference, but Lexus dominates the quality ratings with 5 circles across the board while Toyota has four and five circles. In contrast, GMC has three circles across the board. Why Waggoner refers to JD Powers is unclear, because the ratings seem to contradict his statement in the Wall Street Journal. Admittedly, I am not a car expert, but I'm not convinced that I would get equal quality buying a GM car. Maybe GM should have thought more about quality during the 30 years since this problem has surfaced.

Jason's and Waggoner's belief that direct costs are the source of GM's problem, and their finger pointing at the UAW are misguided. One of the basic principles of incentives, gain sharing and productivity sharing, principles that go back to the days of Frederick Winslow Taylor 100 years ago, is that higher labor costs are often accompanied by lower unit costs. More revealing than costs per vehicle are the blame that GM places on its workers and Waggoner's belief that layoffs are the key to competitiveness. This is misguided.

Unit costs can be lower while wages and benefits higher if processes are managed so that workers are more productive. Toyota has long had lifetime employment, which dramatically raises the quality of work life at the firm. This inflexibility (of not laying people off) would dramatically raise unit costs if Toyota were as poorly managed as GM. But workers at Toyota are more productive than workers at GM because the management is far superior.

Toyota pioneered lean manufacturing and applied TQM processes to it beginning in the 1950s. Part of this process, as described by Edward I. Deming in his book Out of the Crisis is that fear must be driven out of the workplace in order to achieve high quality processes. GM's approach has been to shift plants to Mexico and fire large swaths of workers. This would seem to be a strategy of driving fear into the workplace.

High costs per unit are characteristic of low quality and low productivity per worker. Far from unions being an explanation, high costs per unit suggest that management has failed in its primary task of eliminating special causes of variation and introducing continuous quality and productivity improvement into the plant.

If the UAW is GM's chief problem, then its repeated moving of plants to Mexico ought to have solved its problem. In Mexico, costs are pennies on the dollar compared to costs in the US. Yet, the Mexican strategy seems to have done little for GM.

I am curious if the statistics that Jason cites includes the cost of the Mexican plants, or if it is skewed by just focusing on the few US GM plants that remain.

As well, labor relations management to aim for high productivity and gain sharing is a fundamental responsibility of management. Many firms, including Southwest Airlines, have learned how to manage unions to obtain high productivity and quality. Why has GM been unable to do this?

I can say straight out that the business schools, like American business generally, have been utterly indifferent to human resource management and to questions of quality management and improvement of labor relations and HR. The business schools find HR issues to be boring and unimpressive. The Japanese don't bother with business schools and have much more successful businesses. They aren't so good at lying with statistics, though. Waggoner's spurious claim that cost per unit is a sign of GM's oppression by labor is a good example.

Birth Certificate Petition at RallyCongress.com

Rally Congress.com has a petition demanding release of Barack Obama's birth documentation. The petition is located here. The petition reads:

>Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution reads: "No Person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States."

>There are numerous questions as to Obama's citizen status raising suspicion and doubt about Obama constitutional qualification to be president. To settle these questions Mr. Obama must produce proof of citizenship!

>Documents that must be produced include;
(a) a certified copy of "vault" (original long version) birth certificate;
(b) certified copies of all reissued and sealed birth certificates in the names Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Soetoro, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham and Barry Dunham;
(c) a certified copy Certification of Citizenship;
(d) a certified copy Oath of Allegiance taken upon age of maturity;
(e) certified copies of admission forms for Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law School; and
(f) certified copies of any court orders or legal documents changing his name from Barry Soetoro.

>It is reasonable that these documents should be produced considering that his father is Kenyan, his adoptive father is Indonesian, and his grandmother claims to have been present at his birth in Kenya. If he is a natural born citizen then producing these documents should not be any problem.

>These allegations will not go away until Mr. Obama produces proof to federal authorities and the public. If he will not do so voluntarily he must be compelled by every means available. You, as an employee of The People, have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution.

>We The People are demanding you to make every effort, both public and private, to resolve this fundamental Constitutional question before 20 January.

More on Birth Certificate Law Suits

World Net Daily posts this article (h/t Bob Robbins) about Phil Berg's law suit. Janet Porter writes:

"As I wrote about last week, there are many reasons to doubt whether Barack Obama meets the requirements for the office of president. First, there's that pesky tape from Sarah Obama, Barack's grandmother, where she says, "I was in the delivery room in (Mombosa) Kenya when he was born Aug. 4, 1961." Secondly, there's the matter of U.S. law. If only one parent was an American citizen, as in Obama's case, the law at the time of Obama's birth required one parent to have been an American citizen for at least 10 years – five of which had to have happened after the age of 14. Since Obama's mother was only 18 at the time of Obama's birth, he would not qualify as an American citizen if his grandmother is right about him being born abroad."

Rahm Emanuel's Hitler Youth Plan

Fausta Wertz of Fausta's Blog has forwarded this podcast of the Daily News's Ben Smith's interview with Rahm Emanuel about his plan to institute a mandatory, totalitarian-style (Red Guard, Hitler Youth, classical Spartan) youth camp training for all Americans aged 18-25. Rahm Emanuel went to the same college as I did (albeit a number of years later), Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY.

We see in this video the results of America's crumbled higher education system. Mr. Emanuel is ignorant of the liberal principles that underlie American history and philosophy: the principles of individual rights and freedom, of John Locke and of the dissent of Roger Williams. Louis Hartz has argued that the New Deal and subsequent liberal tradition in America reflected a deeper Lockean liberal tradition. He was wrong. If you have not read, understood and agreed with Locke's Second Treatise on Government I do not think that you can be a good American. I do not believe that today's college graduates know what the American way of life is.

It is a mistake to elect candidates who have graduated from or taught at northeastern higher educational institutions. Northeastern universities inculcate ignorance about essential American traditions. They are not critical. They are simply ignorant. With thugs like Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel in the White House, America is on a tragic path.

Enjoy:



Fausta writes:

>This "Civil Service Plan" is right out of Castro's Cuba, where you have to go work al campo in the countryside when you're twelve years old.

The Emanuel plan is for ages 18-25, so you don't have the outcry that using minors would generate. However, ages 18-25 are prime job-hunting ages. Anyone who doesn't comply with the "Civil Service Plan" can be blackballed from any future employment.

Notice how high schools across the country already have mandatory community service as a graduation requirement. Implementing a mandatory "Civil Service Plan" in colleges, considering how academia is sympathetic to Obama, would be the easiest thing in the world.

From that, to making the "Civil Service Plan" mandatory to future employment would only take nod from Congress.

Can't happen here?

Yes it can!

Andy Martin Awaits Judicial Ruling

Andy Martin awaits a judicial ruling in his case to obtain the vault copy of Barack Obama's birth certificate. Martin writes on his blog:

>A Honolulu circuit judge heard vigorous arguments in the lawsuit filed by Obama author Andy Martin. Martin is seeking access to Barack Obama’s original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate. The judge reserved judgment.

“We had about a half-hour hearing,” Martin states. “Both the Attorney General and I vigorously presented our respective positions. The Court gave no indication of when or how the ruling could come or what the result will be.

“I have ordered a transcript of the hearing and as soon as it arrives we will post it on our blogs. People should be able to read the arguments in Court. Rather than characterize what was said, I will allow everyone to review the presentation for themselves.

“Tuesday afternoon through the gracious assistance of a local supporter I was able to visit the National Cemetery where the ashes of Barack Obama’s grandfather are interred. The Punchbowl Cemetery is very still, and very moving. I am always brought to deep emotion by the graves of the unknown, known only to God, who answered the call and gave their lives in our service. The famous war correspondent Ernie Pyle is also buried at Punchbowl.

“Sadly, there was no ornamentation or remembrance at the plaque of Stanley Dunham. Obama’s memorialization of his family members seems to be limited to the occasional photo op. I hope to have a detailed column on Madelyn Dunham’s memorial as soon as possible, but Wednesday we will be busily working away in the Courthouse again. We are trying to utilize our time in Honolulu as intensively as possible.

“Wednesday at 5:30 P.M. we will launch our National Conversation on the Future of America under Barack Obama and the future of the anti-Obama movement. We will issue details late Tuesday night. Anyone wanting to attend can just show up.

“We will be taking the National Conversation around the country, to South Florida in November, and Northern and Southern California in December, to anywhere and everywhere people are interested. But we thought we would try our best to launch these informal meetings in Hawai’i, where Obama began, and where the movement to remove him from office in 2012 should also begin.

“All are welcome to join us for a free form discussion,” Martin stated. “If anyone who was in court Tuesday shows up, they can deliver their own impression of what happened.”

Andy Martin Begins Obama Birth Certificate Case in Hawaii

I just received the following press release from philo-Semite Andy Martin. Martin's philo-Semitism contrasts with the anti-Semitism of many surrounding Barack Obama, to wit, Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright. Martin writes:

"Andy Martin lands in Honolulu to prepare for court hearing in Obama birth certificate battle.

"I landed in Honolulu Friday and we have set up a fully functional 'fighting camp' to prepare for the court hearing Tuesday, November 18th at 10:30 A.M. on access to Barack Obama's birth certificate

"This will be the first court hearing anywhere on access to the original, 1961 certificate. The only state that has jurisdiction over such a lawsuit is Hawai'i, because Hawai'i officials are the custodians of the 1961 typewritten paperwork.

"Before we get to the back story, let me start with a disclaimer. I have no idea what the judge will do on Tuesday. I make no predictions, except one: I will prepare to the best of my ability and present as professional a case as the judge permits. Monday morning I will be on the street serving papers and filing with the Clerk in preparation for Tuesday.

"And, looking ahead, whatever happens on Tuesday, on Wednesday we hope to launch my 'Conversation With America' about our future course of action in an Obama administration. I invite all of you to join in and support this mission.

"Just as the FBI always attends every Gambino Family funeral to see who is there, ContrarianCommentary.com was in Honolulu Friday to observe the 'independent' (not family-sponsored) 'memorial service' held in memory of Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham. We will have a full column later Sunday, or possibly Monday...

"Unlike other lawsuits involving Obama, mine is narrowly and specifically focused on access to the original, typewritten 1961 certificate which Hawai'i officials have confirmed they possess. There is no way anyone can express an opinion on the circumstances of Obama's birth without seeing the vital gateway document. I have refrained from speculating on the contents of the original because my focus is on expressing an informed opinion (a term CNN once made fund of).

"Mr. Obama and his Chicago crew have been very crafty in creating a cloud of confusion over the "abstract" that he furnished to FactCheck.org as a purported original birth certificate, when obviously it was nothing of the sort. Many millions of people were confused even though the term "abstract" was clearly visible on the FactCheck.org site (and even though FactCheck.org seems to have missed that significance, as well).

"We will also be continuing and conducting the research and investigation we began in October to document Obama's origins in Hawai'i with interviews and contacts with people who knew his family and the other "players" in the Honolulu dramas of the 1970's and 80's.

"As these comments are being prepared Sunday morning I can only conclude with a sense of deep humility at the enormity of the task and the nature of the burden. I continue to bear Barack Obama no ill will. Nevertheless, I passionately and sincerely believe that he owes the American people a detailed exposition of both his personal and his family history, and that he has not been candid with the American people. Without candor, he will not be able to establish the legitimacy that is essential for national leadership. He remains a stranger to the American people.

"Barack Obama and his character assassins such as Robert Gibbs have done everything they can to demonize and defeat and intimidate me. They have failed utterly and abjectly. Tuesday morning I will stand up in court, stand tall, and stand proud for every American who believes Barack Obama needs to start telling the truth about himself. The election may be over. But the search for the truth about Mr. Obama is continuing."

Contrairimairi Raises Baffling Questions About President-Elect Obama

I just received the following information from Contrairimairi who has been doing background searches re Ann Dunham, Barack Obama's mother. Contrairimairi finds some incongruities, but I'm not sure they mean anything (or not). Any thoughts anyone? Plese note that the following research was done by Lisa Ostella.

Dear Mitchell,

Perhaps you know someway to do more research on this info. Something is definitely NOT RIGHT here. I think I smell something coming from Denmark's direction.

Original Notes and results:

- November 7, 1995, Stanley Ann (Dunham-Obama) Soetoro allegedly died of “ovarian cancer” at age “56.” Her body was cremated; there was no funeral. Memorial service held in her honor at the University of Hawaii. No info on BHO attending; But “helped scatter her ashes over the Pacific Ocean.”

Problems with the story - Stanley Ann did not live to be “57.” She ‘died’ 22 days before her 53rd birthday, so she was only 52.

- An alias for Stanley Ann Dunham was found as a “relative/associate” of Madelyn L. Dunham, Honolulu, HI: “Kelly A. Dunham.”

- Dunhams had only one daughter, Stanley Ann. Therefore, Kelly Ann, who does not seem to have any other history, is likely an alias for Stanley Ann.

- Stanley Ann shows up in record searches at various ages???

* Kelly A. Dunham, associate/relative of Madelyn L. Dunham, Honolulu, HI;
* Kelly A. Shippleck (Kelly A. Dunham), Phoenix, AZ [is this a third marriage or an alias for real estate/money laundering?].
* Sandra Dunham (Sandra Lee Dunham), OH, FL
* Susan N. Dunham, HI, CA. Ste (Stephen) Dunham, Honolulu, HI (Stanley Ann chooses another male name?)
* Stephen O. Dunham, Honolulu, HI (”O,” as in “Obama”)
* Scott A. Dunham, (Stanley Ann chooses a second male name?), HI, WA, OR, TN, VA, IN.

Each of the aforementioned aliases contains one or more references to the above examples. In cases where the trail seemingly ends, one needs only cross-reference the “relatives/associates” and the trail continues. Some entries show as many as “99 addresses” in one city and “160 relatives/associates.”

BIG Note about THE FORD FOUNDATION that Ann Dunham was associated with, and her many years of work there in Indonesia from THE FORD FOUNDATION website:

The Jakarta office makes grants in Indonesia.

A Diverse Nation

The Ford Foundation began working in Indonesia, from an office located in Jakarta, in 1953. Over the years, we have provided more than $450 million in grants in selected fields.

The great diversity of Indonesia’s people and their culture—in terms of geography, religion, and social differences—is a source of strength and innovation. At the same time, the nation’s ethnic and linguistic diversity presents challenges, and certain groups are significantly marginalized in their access to resources or participation in decisions that affect their lives.

Broad, Evolving Focus

The grant-making focus of the foundation has evolved over the years in response to the shifting political and economic landscape and the changing needs and priorities of Indonesia’s people and communities.

Today, we are making major commitments in a range of areas, including local philanthropy; natural resources management, rural livelihoods and community empowerment; sexuality and reproductive health; governance and civil society; media, arts and culture; and formal and alternative education. Grants in these areas have been designed to strengthen individual and institutional capabilities, support innovative practices and disseminate information on successful approaches”

Are these doctors involved with Organ Harvesting/Trafficking???

http://www.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idUSMAN28233220070607
June 7, 2007

“...He said trafficking for organs was on the rise in China and in many impoverished states in Southeast Asia, like Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines and Vietnam.”

Are the people currently associated with the building that houses THE FORD FOUNDATION at 320 E. 43rd St. involved in another body organ trafficking ring?

Ann Dunham helped with microeconomics in Indonesia...so why her job title at Ford Foundation for Gender Equality??

Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama
Former Menteng student now US President
“Dunham-Soetoro became a consultant for the United States Agency for International Development on setting up a village credit program, then a Ford Foundation program officer in Jakarta specializing in women’s work. Later, she was a consultant in Pakistan, then joined Indonesia’s oldest bank to work on what is described as the world’s largest sustainable microfinance program, creating services like credit and savings for the poor.”

First on several “DUNHAM” businesses in Hawaii.

They may or may not be legit...I don’t know...WITH MADELYN’S expertise in banking and then with Ann getting into banking also, just didn’t know if they had developed some corporations to funnel money. They are listed as Foreign Profit Corp. Some have lapsed or withdrawn.

SA Dunham the same as our Stanley Ann Dunham that worked at 320 E. 49th St. in NYC at the Ford Foundation??

She supposedly DIED in Nov. 1995, and Verizon didn’t come onto the scene until 1996..after the merger of Bell Atlantic and GE
http://verizonpathetic.com/historylesson6.html

Now, what is interestig is that on this search record, it states years of residence 1993, 1994, 1995. BUT, what is INTERESTING, is that the phone number associated with this S A Dunham was a Land Line..from Verizon. Verizon didn’t exist until 1996.

For years 1993, 1994, 1995 when she was supposed to be living in Hawaii?? She supposedly died on Nov. 7, 1995.

The address at 235 E. 40th St puts her on the same block as her Ford Foundation Job address. 320 E. 40TH ST.

Reverse search on her phone number..it came up name and address unavailable: Phone was a LAND LINE, Verizon

Alan Keyes Sues Obama

Alan Keyes has taken a stand in the ongoing Obama birth certificate quest, according to NBC Augusta (h/t Sharad Karkhanis). The dashing and debonair Keyes has called the effeminate Obama's citizenship into question:

"According to a press release from the American Independent Party, former presidential candidate Alan Keyes and other members of the party have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento to stop the state from giving its electoral votes to President-elect Barack Obama until documentary evidence is provided to prove Obama is indeed a natural born citizen of the United States.

"Keyes also ran against Obama as a Republican for the U.S. Senate seat in Illinois in 2004. Obama won that election to serve his first and only term in the U.S. Senate.

"The Obama campaign countered similar accusations early in 2008 by posting Obama's certification of live birth, and saying: 'Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in 1961, a native citizen of the United States of America.'"

The site rather disingenuously publishes the computer print out presented by Janice Okubo and her associates in the Hawaii Department of Health. The question of interest is whether the information on the vault or original copy (not the computer record) raises questions about the identity of Obama's father or his religion of birth, in turn raising questions about Mr. Obama's integrity that his propagandists at NBC and the New York Times refused to raise.

FrontPageMag Covers Mitchell Langbert's Rebuttal of Left Wing Extremists

Phil Orenstein has published an article in Frontpagemag concerning my rebuttal of an anonymous left wing extremist's assault on trustees of the City University of New York. Orenstein writes:

"Professor Mitchell Langbert posted a scathing reply to an extensively researched article, Look Who's Trusteeing at CUNY featured on the GC Advocate, the on-line student paper of the CUNY graduate Center. The writer excoriates City University of New York (CUNY) Chancellor Matt Goldstein, the CUNY Board of Trustees, and the Chairman of the Board, Benno Schmidt, as a 'veritable rogue’s gallery of hand-picked business elite.' The anonymous writer blames 'CUNY’s ruling body' for 'pushing to turn CUNY into ‘Walmart U,’' for hiking tuition and fees, shoving minority and working students out the door, and for the failure of the big bankers JP Morgan Chase and Citibank to provide student loans while their friends at the fed bail out Freddy Mac and Fannie Mae."

Orenstein adds:

"Instead of calling for the revolutionary overthrow of the rule of the Trustees and CUNY administration to be 'swept away' by the 'democratic' control of 'students, teachers and workers,' it’s the eccentric professors and CUNY officials running amok in radical politics and rallying for the defense of convicted terrorists and extremists, that have to be fired and directed to find a new line of work in a society 'under the rule of capital.'”

I must say: hear, hear. And read Phil's whole article here.

As "Big Three" Plea for Aid, Re-Watch Roger and Me

According to today's Wall Street Journal:

"Senate Democrats introduced legislation that would set aside $25 billion to help the [auto] industry, drawing from the $700 billion fund created to stabilize financial markets. The legislation would allow the auto companies and parts suppliers to receive 'bridge loans' of at least ten years with favorable interest rates. But there is resistance among many senior Republicans and the White House. If no decision is made this week, the issue will be kicked over to the new 111th Congress."

However, there is Senatorial resistance to approving the loans, and for good reason. The auto industry's problems literally span my life. In the late 1940s (I was born in '54) Peter Drucker wrote Concept of the Corporation in which he was mostly complimentary about the firm but raised questions about its labor relations and social responsibility practices. In the mid 1960s Ralph Nader wrote Unsafe at Any Speed, which was critical of the Pinto and the Corvair, and GM's response was to try to frame Nader with a hooker. In 1972 John Z. De Lorean and J. Patrick Wright published On a Clear Day You Can See General Motors, which mocked GM's incompetent and manipulative management. By the late 1970s, the Big Three had failed to respond to the lean manufacturing and quality management initiatives of Toyota and other Japanese manufacturers. In 1980 Congress bailed out Chrysler with a loan guarantee. In the 1980s, the "Big Three" made some quality gains, but soon fell back on the strategy, which seemed bizarre and lame to me at the time, of manufacturing huge SUVs and ignoring quality. In the late 1980s, C Jackson Grayson and Carla Grayson O'Dell wrote American Business: A Two Minute Warning in which they described GM robots painting themselves instead of the cars, and hugely expensive robotized plants that were too inflexible to be competitive. In the late 1980s Michael Moore came out with Roger and Me. One of the themes of Roger and Me is GM's insistence that it is a private corporation and owes no special allegiance to the public or to its employees. In the film as elsewhere the firm opines that the moving of a large percentage of its plants to Mexico is a private, profit-maximizing decision and the public has no right to criticize its use of plant relocations or layoffs. But if plant relocation and layoffs are private decisions, why should the public be concerned about GM's bankruptcy risk?

In contrast to GM, Toyota provides lifetime employment to its employees and has moved a number of plants to the US. Toyota does not complain about labor or fixed costs, but has been criticized for the inflexibility of lifetime employment. GM has laid off workers throughout its history yet now complains about pension and health insurance costs.

Most readers of my blog are not probably fans of Michael Moore. I too disagree with his dream of imposing a Cuban-style $250 per year health program on Americans, or a French-style program that WOULD NOT provide for sewing any of the fingers back on (if you saw Sicko you know what I'm talking about).

Nevertheless, Roger and Me is a good movie, and it should be mandatory for all the Democrats eager to provide subsidies to firms that have insisted on the importance private property rights.

The following is Siskel and Eberts's review of Roger and Me from 1989. General Motors went bankrupt in the 1910's, and the DuPonts took it over in the 1920s and ejected the CEO, Willy Durant. Is GM a firm that has looked out for Americans? Is it a firm that you or I really want to support out of our hard earned money? And why can't they build cars that Americans want to buy?

Meeting of Republican Liberty Caucus and Libertarians of Mid Hudson Valley

Several members of New York's Republican Liberty Caucus met with about 15 Town of New Paltz and Westchester County Libertarians this evening (Tuesday) at the College Diner in New Paltz, New York. Carl Svensson, founder of the New York Libertarian Caucus organized the meeting, and I felt the meeting was a success. The attendants ranged from college students at SUNY New Paltz who have organized a campus Libertarian Club to a retired math professor and a recent candidate for mayor of Peekskill, New York who lost by only two percent. The meeting focused on strategy rather than ideology and the attendees are thinking of ways to get involved in Republican politics and to potentially run for office in several cases. The dynamic and lovely Raquel Okyay was in attendance. Carl Svensson is doing an excellent job, and we anticipate that the meetings will continue next month. I am on the state board of the RLC. As long as the ideological discussion can be minimized and the focus remain on action toward a few well defined goals, the group can potentially make a dent.

Obama Follower Threatens Atlas With Censorship

Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs reports (h/t Larwyn) that she has received the following threat from an Obama supporter who calls himself "GuyInGothamX":

"I am monitoring your site---if you or any of your hate- filled followers even make a passing joke about violence toward Barack Obama or his family, I am going straight to the FBI. I don't put anything past you or your racist followers----everything you do is an incitement to violence... additionally, i have reported your site to the Wiesenthal Center for Tolerance, the ADL, the ADC and the NAACP... you may think race-baiting and religious bigotry are entertaining, but i'm not sure those organizations will."

I have followed Pamela's site for the past year and have never once seen any race bating on her site. In fact, I am an occasional contributor to Wiesenthal, the ADL and the Southern Poverty Law Center and reject racism of any kind. I have never sensed any racism or hint of violence on Pamela's site, which won an attack from MSNBC's Keith Olberman a few weeks ago.

It seems to me that the prejudice is on this anonymous e-mailer's part. Once again we see the left attempting to censor anyone who disagrees with its views. Keep up the good work, Pamela!

Nancy Razik Lets Fox News Have It

I just received the following e-mail from Nancy Razik:

>Fox News - A big old F-U to you. When it looked like B. O. would be coronated, you dropped all pretense of fair and balanced and turned into a clone of MSNBC. When will Olbermann get his own show on your network? He could join Shep Smith and they could fly off the handle together (or whatever sordid little things they like to do).Those throwing Sarah Palin under the bus can kiss my big old white ass. I can't decide if it's insecurity due to a woman with power or if it's just pure jealousy that a woman can look good, raise a family and be a governor but there would not have been 1/3 of the votes for McCain without Palin on the ticket.I don't want to hear another peep about racism or affirmative action. We've got our first affirmative action president. White guilt? Take your white guilt and shove it where the sun don't shine. Don't want to hear no bitching when the New Black Panthers become part of an Obama administration - after all they helped him out in Philly so he owes the brothers. All race cards have expired and are no longer valid in this country.I look forward to watching the koolaid effect wear off over the next 4 years. It's hard to believe in hope and change when you're standing in the unemployment line. Free college education? Handouts? Help with your mortgage? Dream on - you'll be lucky to still have a pot to piss in when the Dems get through with
you. But don't complain or Rahm "ballerina" Emmanuel will send you a dead fish... Gracious Loser - no damn way. Not at the cost of my Country and the Constitution. Taking a cue from the new "first lady"For the first time in my adult life, I'm ashamed of my country.
