Bush: Blackout is 'wake-up' call
Dems, GOP spar over energy policy
http://tinyurl.com/ev2nf / August 15, 2003
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN)-- President Bush said Friday the massive blackout that struck the Northeast and upper Midwest -- as well as parts of Canada -- is a "wake-up call" to modernize the electricity system.
The blackout also provided an opening for some sparring between the administration and Democrats over energy policy with the two sides trading shots over which party was more interested in developing a comprehensive plan.

Iraqi Power Grid Nearing Collapse
August 4, 2007 / http://tinyurl.com/pd8t7s2
Iraq's power grid is on the brink of collapse because of insurgent sabotage, rising demand, fuel shortages and provinces that are unplugging local power stations from the national grid, officials said Saturday.
Electricity Ministry spokesman Aziz al-Shimari said power generation nationally is only meeting half the demand, and there had been four nationwide blackouts over the past two days. The shortages across the country are the worst since the summer of 2003, shortly after the U.S.-led invasion to topple Saddam Hussein, he said.
Power supplies in Baghdad have been sporadic all summer and now are down to just a few hours a day, if that. The water supply in the capital has also been severely curtailed by power blackouts and cuts that have affected pumping and filtration stations.
Karbala province south of Baghdad has been without power for three days, causing water mains to go dry in the provincial capital, the Shiite holy city of Karbala.

MEDIA EXAGGERATE BAKERSFIELD IMMIGRATION RALLY;
SEIU INFLATES NUMBERS BY FACTOR OF 20
by JOEL B. POLLAK 14 Aug 2013
Thousands of activists for immigration reform have gone missing after only four hundred turned up at Wednesday's rally in Bakersfield, CA outside the office of Republican Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy. Though the SEIU reported that "more than 5,000 people" had boarded buses to the rally, only a few hundred actually emerged in Bakersfield--potentially one of the greatest human tragedies in American history.
The Associated Press offered a figure of 1,500 attendees, citing estimates from Bakersfield police. Those estimates are clearly erroneous, based perhaps on expected rather than actual turnout. A local CBS affiliate reported from Los Angeles on the morning of the rally that "3,900 people" were going to the rally.
If so, thousands were lost on the way. Many vehicles are apparently missing, as well--the CBS affiliate reported that "the largest car and bus caravan in California" had left Dodger Stadium, though an organizer filmed by Breitbart News' Lee Stranahan that morning only mentioned one truck and several other vehicles.
Yet journalists have largely failed to follow up on the missing demonstrators.
Of course, the vast majority of those demonstrators did not actually exist.
Earlier in the month, organizers had promised at least 5,000 activists would turn up to the event, which was billed as the climax of "Action August." Yet Breitbart News' Lee Stranahan counted roughly 400 demonstrators at the start of the rally, a figure that matched my impression of the rather sparse throng.
If the bussed-in crowd, which included many self-declared illegal immigrants, swelled at all after that point, it did not do so by much, despite the free lunches dished out by union organizers.

In 1982, I stood with a thousand new immigrants, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and listening to the National Anthem for the first time as an American. To this day, I can't remember anything sweeter and more patriotic than that moment in my life.
Fast forwarding, somehow I finished high school, finished college, and like any other goofball 21 year old kid, I was having a great time with my life. I had a nice job and a nice apartment in Southern California. In some way and somehow, I had forgotten how I got here and why I was here.
One day I was at a gas station, I saw a veteran pumping gas on the other side of the island. I don't know what made me do it, but I walked over and asked if he had served in Vietnam. He smiled and said yes. I shook and held his hand. The grown man began to well up. I walked away as fast as I could and at that very moment, I was emotionally rocked. This was a profound moment in my life. I knew something had to change in my life. It was time for me to learn how to be a good citizen. It was time for me to give back.
You see, America is not just a place on the map, it isn't just a physical location. It is an ideal, a concept. And if you are an American, you must understand the concept, you must accept this concept, and most importantly, you have to fight and defend this concept. This is about Freedom and not free stuff. And that is why I am standing up here.
Brothers and sisters, to be a real American, the very least you must do is to learn English and understand it well. In my humble opinion, you cannot be a faithful patriotic citizen if you can't speak the language of the country you live in. Take this document of 46 pages - last I looked on the Internet, there wasn't a Vietnamese translation of the US Constitution. It took me a long time to get to the point of being able to converse and until this day, I still struggle to come up with the right words. It's not easy, but if it's too easy, it's not worth doing.
Before I knew this 46-page document, I learned of the 500,000 Americans who fought for this little boy. I learned of the 58,000 names scribed on the black wall at the Vietnam Memorial. You are my heroes. You are my founders.
At this time, I would like to ask all the Vietnam veterans to please stand. I thank you for my life. I thank you for your sacrifices, and I thank you for giving me the freedom and liberty I have today. I now ask all veterans, firefighters, and police officers, to please stand. On behalf of all first generation immigrants, I thank you for your services and may God bless you all.

May I suggest that Mr. Quang Nguyen is subjective and biased.And he should be.To him,the U.S. is the greatest country in the world. Not for me to try to dissuade him. He has every right to pound his chest and shout it out.

But you, Rogue, why do you have to come up with this phoney patriotic hooey every fortnight?Are you insecure?Do you need to shout you're the best? You're not.And I'll tell you why.

There are a lot of Quang Nguyen's on this planet, and they are as grateful to France, the UK, Germany, Spain, Scandinavia, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, Brazil as are so many other refugees like him who have been taken in, rescued from dictatorial, bloody regimes. So many countries have accepted refugees of all kinds. You're not alone. They all feel their country of adoption is the greatest, as well they should. Yet this constant "we're the best chant" is frivolous at best, insecure at worse. Live your myth of being the greatest all you want,good for you.The U.S. may have the most powerful military, yes. Does that make it the greatest? Assuredly not.NO COUNTRY, and there are some pretty good ones, CAN CLAIM THE TITLE OF BEING THE GREATEST.Too many factors to be considered. Got it?

US aims to welcome 12,000 Iraqi refugees this year
December 5, 2007 // http://tinyurl.com/kc6a6lt
WASHINGTON (AFP) The United States, under fire for not taking in more Iraqis displaced by the war, plans to admit 12,000 refugees from the strife-torn country before October 1, 2008, a US official said Tuesday.
"Our plans for FY (fiscal year) 2008 include processing enough Iraqi refugees to admit 12,000 during the fiscal year," which began Monday, the US official said on condition of anonymity.
The official's comments came as US President George W. Bush told US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in an official memorandum that the United States looked to welcome a maximum of 80,000 refugees over the next 12 months.

Full Review - Iraq For Sale
http://tinyurl.com/hvs8r
U.S. soldiers profiled in the 2006 Iraq War documentary THE WAR TAPES remark repeatedly that no matter how bad things look, you can bet someone somewhere is getting rich off this war. Muckraking filmmaker Robert Greenwald's provocative documentary explores that contention by showing exactly who's profiting from the debacle in Iraq, and how. The culprits: privately owned companies hired by the U.S. government to provide services the military can't handle, companies with disturbingly close ties to high-ranking officials who oversee military spending. These private contractors not only provide food, laundry and housing, but also security, interrogation and intelligence gathering. By one estimate cited in the film, there are currently more than 20,000 private security forces on the ground in Iraq, more than any other nation in the coalition besides the U.S. The largest private security operation — and Greenwald's first target — is Blackwater, whose CEO has contributed over $2 million to the Republican Party and its candidates. On March 31, 2004, four Fallujah-based Blackwater employees were killed by insurgents; at least two of their families blame Blackwater, claiming that by cutting corners in pursuit of profit, Blackwater left their sons exposed, outmanned and outgunned. Blackwater responded by hiring a powerful D.C. lobbying firm to protect its contracts, and the company's business ballooned over the following years — they even added a whopping $73 million post-Hurricane Katrina FEMA contract. The widespread use of contractors as interrogators and interpreters in Iraq prisons is equally disturbing: When the Abu Ghraib scandal broke, it was estimated that at least 50 percent of the prison's interrogators worked for private contractors such as CACI, which are not held to the same accountability standards as U.S. soldiers.

Ahhh, but el bandito aka Rogue maintains that everything is much better post than pre-Iraq. I agree, it's much better for Blackwater (Halliburton) and its pals than before Iraq. Wonder if Rogue has tallied the Saddam-ordered deaths and compared them to the numbers since 2003. I shan't bother, but it should be interesting. But the question remains : Was the invasion and cost of said invasion in 4,500 dead GIs, 32,000 wounded GIs, some permanently disables physically AND psychologically, 150,000 Iraqis dead, surely over a million gravely wounded, infrastructure destroyed, and over 1.5 trillion greenbacks, not a cent of which has been paid back, worth it? Not to mention Iraq's gratitude to the US by signing giant new oil contracts with Russia and Japan who, as we know, were NOT a part of the coalition. Rogue should be able to tell us if in fact "Mission accomplished" still holds.

Show me ONE , just ONE, not TWO or THREE, "libtard" (Rogue tm reg'd) newspaper or magazine that spelled Colin Powell "Colon" . Do it now please, so I don't have to go through charade of asking multiple times, ending up with you telling me to prove the press didn't call him that.

And save the childish pranks like "chain yanking" or "you took notice didn't you?" kind of crap.

Tell us, when I say Halliburton, whom do you think of? Is it Dick Cheney? But Cheney left Halliburton thirteen years ago and Obama has signed contracts with them!!!

And then there was General Betray Us (Petraeus) and they called him that until he became the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and then Obama told the LSM to pronounce his name correctly.

General Betray Us?
By Washington Post editors
The anti-war group Moveon.org attacked General David Petraeus in a September 10 full-page advertisement in the New York Times, accusing him of being "constantly at war with the facts." Here is an annotated fact check of MoveOn.org 's broadside against Petraeus.

Cheney is a life long government official so how did he become the CEO of Halliburton and then return to government as Vice President?

How the Bush Family Makes a Killing from George’s Presidency
It's good to be a Bush / October 25, 2006 / http://tinyurl.com/y7dy46
Halliburton scored almost $1.2 billion in revenue from contracts related to Iraq in the third quarter of 2006, leading one analyst to comment: "Iraq was better than expected ... Overall, there is nothing really to question or be skeptical about. I think the results are very good."
Very good indeed. An estimated 655,000 dead Iraqis, over 3,000 dead coalition troops, billions stolen from Iraq’s coffers, a country battered by civil war - but Halliburton turned a profit, so the results are very good.
Very good certainly for Vice President Dick Cheney, who resigned from Halliburton in 2000 with a $33.7 million retirement package (not bad for roughly four years of work). In a stunning conflict of interest, Cheney still holds more than 400,000 stock options in the company. Why pursue diplomacy when you can rake in a personal fortune from war?
Yet Cheney isn’t the only one who has benefited from the Bush administration’s destructive policies. The Bush family has done quite nicely too. Just a few examples:

Cheney colleague admits bribery in Halliburton oil deals
4 September 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/5eovvl
A former colleague of the US Vice-President, Dick Cheney, has pleaded guilty to funnelling millions of dollars in bribes to win lucrative contracts in Nigeria for Halliburton, during the period in the Nineties when Mr Cheney ran the giant oil and gas services company.
Albert Stanley, who was appointed by Mr Cheney as chief executive of Halliburton's subsidiary KBR, admitted using a north London lawyer to channel payments to Nigerian officials as part of a bribery scheme that landed some $6bn of work in the country over a decade. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/ameri...
