Secret panel decides who America can kill; Biden brainwashes at elementary school; Hank is "out of here" on Monday nite football; Energy Dept. loan officer steps down; Occupy Wall Street ramblings; The Working Families Party and its ties to Hillary Clinton and Soros; Pelosi asks God to bless the protesters; Obama assigns work to media; Feds design basic benefits package for privately insured Americans; Obama's personality disorders; Obama says banks should only earn "a certain amount of profit"; Dems ask chief regulator of Freddie and Fannie to step down; Harry Reid keeps Jobs bill from a vote; Terrorist William Ayers writes manifesto for Occupy Wall St.

As Margaret Thatcher once said, "The trouble with Socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people's money."
Jonathan Turley wrote: I recently ran a couple of columns (here and here) and postings criticizing President Obama’s assertion of the right to kill citizens as a presidential prerogative. It now appears that he has delegated the selection of targets for killings to a panel of unnamed officials who determine which people should be killed without a trial or even a charge. When it comes to citizens like Anwar al-Awlaki, the killings raise serious constitutional problems that are being kept from the courts by the Administration.

The identity of the members of the death panel are secret. There is no public record of their decisions or the basis for the kill order. Indeed, neither the target nor the public will necessarily know that it was this panel that ordered the killing.
While civil libertarians are raising voices of concern over such extrajudicial killings of citizens, the Obama Administration h”portraying the killing of Awlaki as a demonstration of President Barack Obama’s toughness toward militants who threaten the United States.” It has worked. Even conservatives are cheering the killings of the two citizens. Apparently, death panels in health care are enough to rally thousands in opposition but an actual death panel produces nary a yawn if the targets are hated. The fear is that this is how the rule of law dies — to the cheers and thunderous applause of citizens.
The results of the panel are simply submitted to the President, who retains the authority to countermand their decisions.

Breitbart reveals: Biden Propagandizes 5th Graders: ‘Things Got Really Bad Before We Came Into Office’  [He said that  good people are having trouble finding jobs and keeping their homes, adding that "an awful lot of companies said there's no more jobs for you here."  I'm sure it's all Bush's fault.]


Hank Jr. reacts to being pulled from ESPN from the Oct 3rd Monday Night game opener.


“After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment
Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE.  It’s been a great run.” -- Hank Williams Jr    [What a patriot!]
Washington Post writes: The head of the Energy Department’s controversial loan guarantee program has decided to step down, department officials confirmed to The Washington Post on Thursday.
Occupy Wall St. writes: NO elected official member of our Congress should be allowed to : Have personal holdings or be CEO of or in a corporation that has any dealings AT ALL with the US Govt (CAN WE SAY CHENEY/HALLBURTON?) incl research and pharmaceutical companies.
Elected officials should not be allowed to own and or trade stocks in the corporations they are SUPPOSED to be regulating IN THE BEST INTEREST of the people. (Talk about insider trading:)
Obama was right in his speech when he mentions the 10,000 page tax code There are Too many perks, and loopholes and too many corrupt greedy people that create and use them.
These corporations know how to work it, and contribute nothing back to the country they feed off of. We are consumers and nothing more to these companies.
Big Corps work the system and its time to put a stop to it.  [OK - first of all, this website produces poorly written, grammatically incorrect statements, proving to me that whoever is writing it has not taken his free public education seriously.  Do they fail to understand that this President and his Democrat Congress failed to do anything to change the laws that allowed for "corporate greed" and avoidance of taxes?  Do they fail to realize that it is the Obama administration which has failed to PROSECUTE those people who made fortunes on companies which were bailed out (most of them Democrats, like those at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac)?  Do they really know anything about economics or what has really been going on?  Or are they simply taking up the I Hate Capitalism mantra of their President?] 
CORPORATIONS NEED TO PAY JUST LIKE THE COMMON CITIZEN DOES AND THEY NEED TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE NOT ONLY FOR THEIR ACTIONS, but for the consequences of their actions as well. Am I the only one who feels that there is a great opportunity being missed here? Let's get active and interested and include President Obama and the White House in our online occupy Wall St. email and comments campaign. Let the President know that yes we are interested in seeing corporations pay up... get conversation begun, a foot in the door, and maybe we can broaden concerns to include many of the other issues we would like to address. [A point on which we can agree!]

Free Republic reports: The Working Families Party that is organizing a bus tour protest this Saturday at the homes of AIG employees has deep ties to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, billionaire leftist financier George Soros and the radical group ACORN.
A 2005 article by Richard Poe published at Discover the Networks details the connections:
The Working Families Party (WFP) is a front group for the radical cult ACORN. It functions as a political party in New York State and Connecticut, promoting ACORN-friendly candidates. Unlike conventional political parties, WFP charges its members dues – about $60 per year – a policy characteristic of ACORN and its affiliates.
According to the party’s Web site, WFP is a coalition founded by ACORN, the Communications Workers of America, and the United Automobile Workers. However, ACORN clearly dominates the coalition. New York ACORN leader Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party. WFP headquarters is located at the same address as ACORN’s national office, at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn.
Weekly Standard writes: During a press conference Thursday afternoon, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi praised those participating in the "Occupy Wall Street" protests. "God bless them," Pelosi said, "for their spontaneity. It's independent ... it's young, it's spontaneous, and it's focused. And it's going to be effective."
When the Tea Party movement emerged in 2009, then-Speaker of the House Pelosi called them "astroturf" and "un-American" people who were "carrying swastikas."
AP writes: Obama conceded that voters have grown deeply exasperated and cynical, and he put the responsibility largely on Congress as unresponsive to public opinion. At one point Obama even told his media questioners to accept a "little homework assignment" and "go ask Republicans what their jobs plan is."
AP reports: The federal government is taking on a crucial new role in the nation's health care, designing a basic benefits package for millions of privately insured Americans. A framework for the Obama administration was released Friday.
The report by independent experts from the Institute of Medicine lays out guidelines for deciding what to include in the new "essential benefits package," and how to keep it affordable for small businesses and taxpayers, as well as scientifically up to date.
The advisers recommended that the package be built on mid-tier health plans currently offered by small employers, expanded to include certain services such as mental health, and squeezed into a budget. They did not spell out a list of services to cover, but they did say that treatments should be cost-effective.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ writes: Thursday news conference was a sober reminder of the nature of the man in the Oval Office. I infer that even many of his supporters in the liberal media are finally catching on to the magnitude of his personality disorders. How could a man in his important position continue to act so childishly, accepting no responsibility for his policies and behavior and demonizing everyone who dares to disagree with or oppose him? It's worse than embarrassing; it's unsettling.
From the conference we are reminded that Obama believes that:
—Only "big and bold" intervention by the government can get an economy moving; so long as he cites a few "expert economists" who agree with him, there can be no other legitimate opinion.
—Anyone who disagrees with or opposes him is engaging in partisan politics rather than acting in good faith, on principle and in the best interests of the country.
—If Republicans continue to oppose his jobs bill, it will be because they don't want laid-off policemen, firefighters and teachers working again.
—The failure, waste and corruption in his $868 billion stimulus package are irrelevant when considering whether to embark on another such reckless venture.
American Thinker opines: When Bank of America decided to respond to the Durbin amendment (which cut down the charges they could charge merchants when debit cards are used to pay for purchase) by charging customers five dollars a month should they decide to use debit cards, Barack Obama attacked the bank by stating that they should only earn a "certain amount of profit."
This is cheap populism. He and his Illinois pal and political ally created the problem by supporting the amendment cutting the fees charged to merchants. The gall is that they now are attacking people trying to deal with the problem they created. Furthermore, it is disgraceful for a President to engage in such class warfare rhetoric (but, he has an addiction to do this - "millionaires and billionaires" routinely role from his lips and to delve down into business areas that should be and are trivial. There are a myriad of responses people can take when confronted with these charges: they could find another bank or just choose not to use debit cards. America survived for many decades without them.
That is how a free-enterprise economy works. Only in a government-controlled economy does the leader get to decide how much someone can earn. We are not there yet despite our President's seeming agenda to take us there.
But this is not the first time he expressed his belief that he can decide how much someone should earn. From April ,2010:
"I do think at a certain point you've made enough money"
The Hill writes: Infuriated by the Obama administrations handling of the lingering foreclosure crisis, several leading House Democrats this week suggested that Edward DeMarco should step down as the chief regulator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
DeMarco, acting director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) — an agency independent of the White House — met Thursday with 17 House Democrats in the Capitol, ostensibly to brief them on FHFAs enhanced efforts to help struggling homeowners. Instead, he revealed that the agency doesnt yet have such a plan.
The news didnt sit well with the Democrats.
Washington Examiner reports: Senate Republicans tried to embarrass Democrats who don't support President Obama's job bill by forcing a vote on the measure Thursday, but Democrats responded by stripping Republicans of legislative power.
The GOP tried to force Democrats to vote on Obama's $447 billion jobs-creation bill to prove that even the president's own party doesn't support the proposal. Republicans tried to attach the jobs bill to a measure dealing with China.
However, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., responded to the Republican effort with a proposal, approved 51-48, that changed the rules of the Senate and stripped Republicans of their power to offer amendments to bills once the Senate agreed to cut off debate and vote.
It was an unusual and devastating blow to the minority party.
Reid and Democrats said they retaliated because they have grown tired of Republicans trying to slow down or block legislation with amendments unrelated to the bill on the floor.

Conservative Treehouse (and verified by other more well known websites) writes: Convicted Domestic Terrorist from the Weather Underground, Leftist Radical, and ghost writer for Obama’s autobiography, Bill Ayers writes the Wall Street manifesto.…  Now all he needs to do is convince the crowd to read it and agree with his agenda.  Read the manifesto here:
