Elevated to the rank of "major non-NATO ally" by President George W. Bush , Pakistan is now deemed too dangerous for the hundreds of U.S. and NATO supply trucks that keep allied forces fighting against the Taliban in Afghanistan. In the latest attack against the NATO lifeline, 11 trucks and 13 containers were demolished outside Peshawar, near the northern end of the 600-mile route from the port of Karachi to the Khyber Pass. This followed the attack and collapse of a key bridge near the Khyber Pass, which backed up some 1,000 trucks all the way to Karachi. Normally, some 600 supply trucks a day cross the border into Afghanistan.

Some NATO allies have pointed out that a shorter and more efficient route would be through Turkey and Iran into Afghanistan. Besides diplomatic engagement, the Obama administration is yet to decide on a new Iranian policy. Meanwhile, the mullahs, pumped up by their successful launching of a tennis ball-sized satellite into orbit, have no intention of quitting their quest for a nuclear weapon.

Pepco Holdings Tops Big Spenders in Annapolis
Utility companies and associations representing retailers, real estate brokers, bankers and health interests were among the big spenders on lobbyists last year in Annapolis.

Pepco Holdings tops a list recently released by the State Ethics Commission. Pepco spent $723,330 on lobbying from November 2007 through October. That period included a special legislative session on the budget and last year's regular session.
Why do you care? Because Pepco was just given 5 Billion of our dollars to do unspecified things with under the blanket of the Department of Energy ... I guess that was $723,330 well spent for them.

 I look at you all
see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps

I look at the floor

Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know why
nobody told you
how to unfold your love

I don’t know how
someone controlled you
They bought and sold you.

I look at the world
and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps

With every mistake
we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know how
you were diverted
You were perverted too

I don’t know how
you were inverted
No one alerted you.

Bush Calls Bailout Vital to Economy, Will Meet With McCain and Obama
Proposal Takes Shape in Congress, but Broad Support Is Lacking

By Lori Montgomery and Paul Kane
Washington Post Staff Writers
Thursday, September 25, 2008; A01

President Bush said yesterday that the credit crisis that has seized world markets could devastate the U.S. economy unless Congress acts quickly to approve a $700 billion bailout plan for the nation's financial system, a message aimed at reluctant lawmakers as much as a deeply skeptical public.

The Bush administration overpaid tens of billions of dollars for stocks and other assets in its massive bailout last year of Wall Street banks and financial institutions, a new study by a government watchdog says The Congressional Oversight Panel, in a report released Friday, said last year's overpayments amounted to a taxpayer-financed $78 billion subsidy of the firms.

Obama Set to Name Economic Panel
President Obama is set to appoint on Friday a new team of outside economic advisers, led by a former Federal Reserve chairman, Paul Volcker, to offer independent advice to help the White House craft a response to the nation’s growing recession.

[SNIP]

The group also will include Jeffrey Immelt, chairman of General Electric, and Jim Owens, the chairman of Caterpillar Inc., which announced last week the layoff of 20,000 jobs. William Donaldson, a former Securities and Exchange Commission chairman, will also serve on the board, along with Roger Ferguson, the president of T.I.A.A.-CREF, and Martin Feldstein, a Harvard University professor, who was the chief economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan.

The group also includes two leading labor officials: Richard Trumka of the A.F.L.-C.I.O. and Anna Burger of the Service Employees International Union. The board, which will meet for two years, will be guided by Austan Goolsbee, an economic adviser to the president.
When he first met Obama, Volcker sat at a table with Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn and Merrill Lynch President Greg Fleming

11/21/2008: Where Will GE's Jeff Immelt Be at 2 PM Today?
General Electric (GE) said last week that it will tap the FDIC for guarantees covering $139 billion in corporate debt via its finance arm. Banks are automatically enrolled in the FDIC guarantee program unless they decide to opt out. However, a group of nine large banks, including Goldman Sachs (GS), Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C) and JP Morgan (JPM), had objected to certain key provisions in the Interim Rule. In particular, the nine banks, and Credit Suisse (CS), warned that anything short of an unconditional and prompt payment obligation on the part of the FDIC will place American financial institutions at a distinct disadvantage when compared to their British and European counterparts.
James W. Owens, Glow Baller Deluxe:
“Nationally, my big interest quite frankly is trade and globalization,” he says. “I feel very strongly about it as a professional economist, as an American, and certainly as a chairman of a major company that participates in a global economy.”

He says the United States has to win and compete in the world market in order to continue to be a great country in 2050. With only five percent of the world’s population, U.S. companies will not be able to compete in the long term by encouraging protectionist policies.

“There’s tremendous apprehension among the public, fed by and flamed by the politicians for short-term votes, which I think is a bit of a tragedy,” he says. “I think the business leadership in our country has got to speak out more forcefully and articulately about the benefits of trade, the win-win aspect of trade.”

Effective globalization also encompasses the need for a thoughtful immigration policy, which our political system seems to be fighting.

“I believe more people have been lifted out of poverty by globalization and opening markets than by the sum of all the charities by a factor of many,” he says.

William Donaldson

As SEC Chairman, Donaldson presided over the meeting at the SEC on April 28, 2004, that was held at the request of the major Wall Street investment houses, including Goldman Sachs, then headed by future Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr. The firms requested that the SEC approve an alternative to the so-called "net capital rule", or responsibility to hold regulatory capital in their brokerage units. They also wanted to avoid European Union regulation of the entire investment banking conglomerates, since the EU had agreed not to scrutinize foreign firms at the consolidated level if the SEC were to do so instead.

A 1999 law, however, put investment bank holding companies, the consolidated groups of their hundreds of subsidiaries, beyond SEC oversight. The investment banks therefore lobbied for a decision that would allow "voluntary" regulation at the holding company level by the SEC.

The Commission under Donaldson voted unanimously to change the regulation as the investment banks requested. Under the final rules the large investment banks were "subject to substantially fewer requirements," according to the adopting release.[4]

In the 2004 rulemaking, the Commission under Donaldson decided to rely on the firms’ own computer models for determining the riskiness of investments, "essentially outsourcing the job of monitoring risk to the banks themselves."[5] Donaldson and the other Commissioners who voted for the rule change were aware of the risks at the time, as indicated by the comment at the April 28, 2004 meeting by Commissioner Harvey Goldschmid. "If anything goes wrong," said Goldschmid, who supported Donaldson in voting for the proposal, "it's going to be an awfully big mess."[6] A report by the SEC Office of the Inspector General[7][8] after the near-failure of Bear Stearns stated that the standards the Commission adopted under Donaldson in 2004 were inadequate to warn of the firm's impending crisis.

The only briefing the Commission received that criticized the regulatory change prior to its adoption came from Leonard D. Bole, an information technology consultant, who found the risk models used by investors no better in 2004 than during the 1998 failure and bailout of the hedge fund, Long-Term Capital Management. At the time of the rulemaking the SEC took no action to contact Bole to follow up on the briefing that he submitted.[5]




Speech by SEC Chairman William H. Donaldson
Remarks before the Caux Round Table

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

Minneapolis, Minnesota
November 30, 2004

Let me start by thanking the Caux Round Table for giving me this much appreciated honor and the opportunity to speak this evening. The Round Table has done, and continues to do, important and valuable work – in the United States and throughout the world – helping to advance ethical business practices and a moral capitalism. It is an honor and a pleasure to be here.

I also want to thank John Whitehead for his generous words. Through his career in business and government John has come to embody the ideals at the core of the Caux Principles for Business. He has been a close friend for many years, and as many of you know he has had a long and distinguished career as the senior partner at Goldman, Sachs and as Deputy Secretary of State. Today, New York and the nation are fortunate to have him leading the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, which has been helping to rebuild the area around the World Trade Center following the September 11th terrorist attacks. He has also served as a director of many non-profit organizations and business corporations, including Pillsbury here in Minneapolis.
So, I ask myself WTF is all this "Moral Capitalism" crap he keeps referring to through the whole speech? Well, I'll tell you:
Moral Capitalism is based on the Caux Round Table (CRT) Principles for Business, a code of ethics that sets consistent and attainable worldwide guidelines for how business can behave responsibly and ethically. The book shows readers how to manage market capitalism and globalization for economic and social justice and fairness, in the process improving individual lives and communities. Author Stephen Young argues that "brute capitalism" - profit-seeking regardless of effects - must give way to moral capitalism to attain widespread monetary and moral well-being. Emphasizing a cross-cultural perspective that draws on Chinese and Japanese philosophies of selflessness, Young links moral aspirations to practical, day-to-day guidelines for a profitable approach to business that is also ethical, resulting in the public good.


SO. Let's look at this Caux Round Table crapola for a minute:

CAUX ROUND TABLE:

"An international network of business leaders working to promote a moral capitalism"

"What has differentiated the Caux Round Table from its inception is that it consists of individual senior business leaders who share common values and a conviction that business should assume a leadership role in bringing positive changes in society. We seek to affect the policies and conduct not only of internationally involved businesses but also of governments and multinational institutions. We believe that sensitivity to the concerns of all stakeholders, dialogue that leads to advocacy and action, and collaboration with others are the keys to greater prosperity, sustainability and fairness in a global economy."
~Winston R. Wallin
Former Chairman, Caux Round Table and Chairman Emeritus, Medtronic Inc.

"These principles are rooted in two basic ethical ideals: kyosei and human dignity. The Japanese concept of kyosei means living and working together for the common good enabling cooperation and mutual prosperity to coexist with healthy and fair competition. "Human dignity" refers to the sacredness or value of each person as an end, not simply as a mean to the fulfillment of others' purposes or even majority prescription."

Principles for NGO's

The Caux Round Table believes that social justice and better outcomes from the global modernizing and wealth-creating process called "globalization" depend on values of accountability, transparency, and stewardship being infused in all social, cultural, political and economic institutions.

The Caux Round Table has suggested certain principles of accountability, transparency and stewardship for both businesses and governments. Modern civilization, importantly however, also includes civil society. Therefore, the Caux Round Table has undertaken a project under the coordination of Dr. Harry Hummels of The Netherlands, Director of Socially Responsible Investments, ING Bank, to develop a similar set of principles for the non-governmental organizations "NGO's" that play such a vital role in the activities of civil society. To see the draft Principles for NGO's please click here.

September 2008: Feldstein was a board member of AIG and McCain's Economic Advisor:


[SNIP]

Martin Feldstein, who serves on the board of AIG, is one of McCain's top economic advisers. Earlier this month, Feldstein gushed in the Wall Street Journal over McCain's plans to cut taxes even further, and to shift healthcare costs from employers to employees in a "tax credit" scheme that many believe will solely benefit insurance companies, at the expense of workers. Since AIG is--or was--the world's largest insurance company, it stood to gain from McCain's policies.

[SNIP]

I can't tell if he WAS or still IS on AIG's board...


He is also a Director at Eli Lilly and Company....




Meantime, WTF is an Austan Goolsbee?




Goolsbee was the senior economic advisor to Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign until a memo was leaked regarding a visit Goolsbee paid to Canadian officials at the Canadian consulate in Chicago in April of 2008.[23] The memorandum detailed Goolsbee's reassurances that Obama's announced intent to "renegotiate NAFTA" (the North American Free Trade Agreement) during a debate with Hillary Clinton "should be viewed as more about political positioning than a clear articulation of policy plans."[24] The event was later listed in Fortune Magazine's "21 Dumbest Moments in Business 2008".[25]

“I think Austan innocently went over there, half as a professor, half as a campaign adviser,” said Obama campaign manager David Axelrod. “He’s basically a volunteer. He’s one of the economists Barack talks to. He’s not in close and constant contact with the candidate.”

$20.3 Million for the Resettlement of Radical Muslims

PRESIDENT OBAMA INVITES HAMAS TERRORISTS TO AMERICA

by Paul L. Williams, Bos Smith & Michael Travis

By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in migration assistance to the Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.

The "presidential determination" which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States was signed on January 27 and appeared in the Federal Register on February 4.

President Obama's decision, according to the Register, was necessitated by "the urgent refugee and migration needs" of the "victims."

Few on Capital Hill took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.

The charter for Hamas calls for the replacement of the nation of Israel with a Palestinian Islamic state.

Since its formation in 1994, Hamas has been responsible for hundreds of terrorist attacks, including the 2002 Passover suicide bombing. The leaders of the movement signed the World Islamic Statement of 1998 - - a document, penned by Osama bin Laden, which declared war on America and Israel.

President Obama's executive order is expected to bring hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, many with ties to radical Islam, to our shores, furthering a process that was inaugurated in 1995 by Senator Ted Kennedy and the Cedar-Hart bill.

THE OPEN GATE

In 1965, Allah in His mercy raised up Senators Ted Kennedy and Edward Celler to initiate changes in the immigration law that made it possible for millions of Muslims to make their way to the New World - - as the Christian Europeans had done in the early years of the 20th Century. The Cedar-Hart bill, which was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on October 3, 1965, abolished the national-origin quotas that had been in effect since 1924. In the spirit of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it barred discrimination on the basis of race, creed, religion, or national origin. America, by fiat of liberal secular humanists, was to be become a multicultural country - - a country severed from its Judeo-Christian roots.

Remaining cognizant of the common roots as the American people, our legislative had enacted stringent laws pertaining to immigration and naturalization. The Naturalization Act of 1790 stipulated that "any alien, being a free white person, may be admitted to become a citizen of the United States" The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 prohibited Chinese families from immigrating to the United States. The Immigration Act of 1907 reorganized the states bordering Mexico (Arizona, New Mexico and a large part of Texas) into Mexican Border District to stem the flow of immigrants into the U.S.

The Immigration Act of 1924 further limited the number of new immigrants by the establishment of a stringent quota system. The number of newcomers was now limited to 2 percent of each nationality who lived in the country not in 1924 but in 1890. The reliance of this legislation on the ethnic composition of the country before the turn of the century guaranteed that the majority of new arrivals would be from Northern Europe. Since few Italians and Eastern Europeans lived in the U. S. in 1890, the quotas for these nationalities became fixed at marginal rates and the number of new immigrants from "undesirable" regions greatly reduced. The following chart shows the effects of this legislation:

Immigration Statistics, 1920-1926
Year Total
Entering U.S.
Country of Origin
Great
Britain
Eastern
Europe*
Italy
1920 430,001 38,471 3,913 95,145
1921 805,228 51,142 32,793 222,260
1922 309,556 25,153 12,244 40,319
1923 522,919 45,759 16,082 46,674
1924 706,896 59,490 13,173 56,246
1925 294,314 27,172 1,566 6,203
1926 304,488 25,528 1,596 8,253

It is hard to conceive of an act of Congress that could be more culturally biased than the Immigration Act of 1954 and yet it received nearly unchallenged bipartisan support. Yet The New York Times editorialized: "The country has a right to say who shall and who shall not come in. . . . The basis of restriction must be chosen with a view not to the interest of any group or groups in this country . . . but rather with a view to the country's best interests as a whole."1

In 1952, The McCarran Walter Immigration Act affirmed the national-origins quota system of 1924 and limited total annual immigration to one-sixth of one percent of the population of the continental United States in 1920, or 175,455. The act exempted spouses and children of U.S. citizens and people born in the Western Hemisphere from the quota.

THE KENNEDY PROMISE

But, in 1965, Kennedy and company viewed such legislation as pig-headed and prejudicial. Few elected officials, Senator Sam Ervin of North Carolina - - being one of the exceptions, dared to disagree with them. Championing the Celler-Hart bill, which called for the abolished all quotas, Kennedy, being far from prescient, said: "Contrary to the charges in some quarters, S500 will not inundate America with immigrants from any other country or area, or the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia. . . The charges I have mentioned are highly emotional, irrational, and with little foundation in fact. They are out of line with the obligation of responsible citizenship. They breed hate of our heritage."2

Forty years after Senator Kennedy made this pledge, Dean Steven Gillon of the Honors College at Oklahoma University assessed the results of the 1965 Immigration Act by noting: "The U. S. added at least 40 million immigrants after 1965. Before 1965, 95 percent of the new immigrants had come from Europe. After 1965, 95 percent came from the Third World. The 1965 act has transformed American society and had consequences exactly the opposite of what we were promised."3

In his speech before Congress, Senator Kennedy had said; "Our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually." The level of immigration, he swore, would remain substantially same as it was in 1965 - -156,700. This, too, proved to be woefully incorrect. The present immigrant rate exceeds 1.5 million annually. Noting this, Pat Buchanan writes:

    The 1965 Cedar-Hart bill was the greatest bait-and-switch in history. Americans were promised one result, and got the opposite result that they had been promised would never happen. They were misled. They were deceived. They were swindled. They were told immigration levels would remain roughly the same and the ethnic composition of their country would not change. What they got was a Third World invasion that is converting America into another country.4

From 1965 to the present, more than half of all the immigrants to America from the Middle East and Asia have been Muslim with radical ideologies.5 Malcolm is surely smiling in his grave, for he had written:

    As the Christian Crusade once went East, now the Islamic Crusade is going West. With the East - - Asia - - closed to Christianity, with Africa rapidly becoming converted to Islam, with Europe rapidly becoming un-Christian, generally today it is accepted that the 'Christian' civilization of America - - which is propping up the white race around the world - - is Christianity's remaining strongest bastion.

    Well, if this is so - - if the so called 'Christianity' now being practiced in America displays the best that the world Christianity has to offer - - no one in his right mind should need any much greater proof that very close at hand is the end of Christianity. Are you aware that some Protestant theologians, in their writings, are using the phrase "post-Christian" era - - and they mean now?

Iran at Muslim Pow Wow: Now US must listen:

He was speaking at a roundtable conference on “Islam and the West and future agenda of change” held under the auspices of Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) in Islamabad.
A representative of Russian embassy said today’s world is interdependent and there is a need for understanding each others point of view on issues.

He said, “Russia, as observer at OIC, wants to build good relations with OIC and its member countries including Pakistan. Russia gives due respect to Muslim Ummah and its proof is that in Russia there are 4750 mosques among 10,000 places of worship."

Talk to US, says leader of Iranian embassy takeover

Obama is open to talk. His coming to power gives us an opportunity to negotiate; we have to use this situation to rebuild our outlook,” he said, adding that co-operation on such common issues as Afghanistan could help build bridges.

Mending relations with the United States would also help Iran “obtain international trust” and enable the country to focus on resolving its domestic problems, he said
An interview with the Iranian Ambassador
Q: How about Iran’s position on participation in the NABUCCO project?

A: As you probably know Iran is one of the countries richest in natural oil reserves. Many European countries rely on Iran to supply them with oil resources and many European countries consider Iran one of their reliable sources of energy supply. Iran is capable of satisfying the interests of consumers. Negotiations with some European countries are being carried on at a bilateral level and some agreements have already been achieved.

Europe is very much interested in having a reliable and constant energy supply and we continually receive suggestions that we should cooperate in various projects. NABUCCO is one of those. Very many experts are expressing their assurance that without involving Iran the NABUCCO project will not be economically viable. Experts are sure that without Iran’s participation the project will not be profitable. Negotiations should be conducted between the producers, transit countries and consumers.

Russia aims again at US influence
Russia sought Wednesday to strengthen its security alliance with six other former Soviet republics by forming a joint rapid reaction force in a continuing effort to curb U.S. influence in Central Asia.

Russia, Armenia, Belarus and four Central Asian nations - Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan - agreed to set up the joint force. The force is expected to have about 10,000 men and function under a central command, replacing an existing force that has 3,000 soldiers and it is not under unified command.

Six-nation talks on Iran's nuclear issue starts in Germany
None of the six countries involved, which also included Britain, China, France, Russia, and the U.S., has commented on the specific goals of Wednesday's meeting.

A "smart grid" network to help electricity consumers from the Washington, D.C., area to southern New Jersey use energy more efficiently will be developed by Silver Springs Network, Pepco Holdings Inc. announced Tuesday.

Sounds ostensibly helpful and benign, right? But Pepco now works for The Man. To the tune of 5 BILLION. And that worries me. Smart Grid, hmmm?

A smart grid delivers electricity from suppliers to consumers using digital technology to save energy and cost. Such a modernized electricity network is being promoted by many governments as a way of addressing energy independence or global warming issues. For example, if smart grid technologies made the United States grid 5% more efficient, it would equate to eliminating the fuel and greenhouse gas emissions from 53 million cars.[1] The then President-elect; now President Barack Obama asked the United States Congress "to act without delay" to pass legislation that included doubling alternative energy production in the next three years and building a new electricity "smart grid". [2].

Seems to me a digitized grid would have the propensity to be used covertly for a million other nefarious ends. Okeedokee then.

Goldman Sachs postpones hedge-fund conference
Why? I'll tell you:

2007: The search of Islamic hedge funds is the high margin holy grail

Dubai Islamic Bank:
Underlying Fund : The GSAM ALPS Fund is a fund of hedge funds incorporated in the Cayman Islands and managed by Goldman Sachs Hedge Fund Strategies LLC ”HFS”)
Redemption at Maturity : 100% of the Nominal Amount plus 80% of the positive performance of the GSAM ALPS 9% Max USD Total Return Net Index
Capital Protection : 100% capital protection from Deutsche Bank AG, London branch, if Notes are held until maturity (5 years); achieved through a Sharia-compliant mechanism
Goldman Sachs is the second largest hedge fund manager in the world with a USD 32.5 billion portfolio of assets under management.
Disagreements do arise between industry members and scholars on the acceptability of certain techniques used to create hedge fund-related products suitable for Islamic investors.
For example, there was controversy over a Shariah-compliant fund launched last June by Dubai Islamic Bank in partnership with Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs that is linked to the performance of conventional, non-Shariah hedge funds, but not directly invested in them.
Well mah Peepers, now you know why the Gold Man has postponed their conference. They have to find a way to offer Sharia Compliant Hedge Funds to the satisfaction of their Islamic overlords.
