Jewish lawyer asks to join Morocco’s Islamist party

Isaac Charia, a political hopeful, pens letter to ruling Justice and Development Party asking if Jews welcomed

A Moroccan Jewish lawyer has asked to join ruling Islamist party.

Isaac Charia of Rabat sent an open letter to the Islamist Justice and Development Party requesting to join the party, Morocco World News reported.

In the letter, Charia asks whether the party will welcome Moroccan Jews or if it is only for Muslims. He also writes that “the honest citizen who wants to participate in the political life of the country has no other alternative” than the party. He said he wants to fight corruption and encourage reforms through the party.

Charia has called for political parties in Morocco to stop mixing politics and religion.

SCOTUS: Voters in a state have the right to BAN race considerations

The Supreme Court has upheld Michigan’s ban on using race as a factor in college admissions.

The justices said in a 6-2 ruling Tuesday that Michigan voters had the right to change their state constitution to prohibit public colleges and universities from taking account of race in admissions decisions. The justices said that a lower federal court was wrong to set aside the change as discriminatory.

Justice Anthony Kennedy said voters chose to eliminate racial preferences because they deemed them unwise.

Kennedy said nothing in the Constitution or the court’s prior cases gives judges the authority to undermine the election results.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor read her dissent aloud in the courtroom Tuesday. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sided with Sotomayor in dissent.

Biggest issue is CLIMATE? Older people (50-64) are quietly moving in with their parents at twice the rate of their younger counterparts.

If you look today at the icon of the left today, the Nation, the ENTIRE site today is devoted to climate change, stating..

Confronting the climate crisis not only requires a new economy but a new way of thinking.

by Naomi Klein

You can imagine what they think of the XL pipeline. High fuel costs are part of the ‘new’ economy to save the earth.

Meanwhile, back on earth and away from fantasies…

LA Times (not exactly a right wing screed)

Moving in with parents becomes more common for the middle-aged

The number of Californians 50 to 64 who live in their parents’ homes has surged in recent years, reflecting the grim economic aftermath of the Great Recession.



Debbie Rohr lives with her husband and twin teenage sons in a well-tended three-bedroom home in Salinas.

The ranch-style house has a spacious kitchen that looks out on a yard filled with rosebushes. It’s a modest but comfortable house, the type that Rohr, 52, pictured for herself at this stage of life.

She just never imagined that it would be her childhood home, a return to a bedroom where she once hung posters of Olivia Newton-John and curled up with her beloved Mrs. Beasley doll.

Driven by economic necessity — Rohr has been chronically unemployed and her husband lost his job last year — she moved her family back home with her 77-year-old mother.

At a time when the still sluggish economy has sent a flood of jobless young adults back home, older people are quietly moving in with their parents at twice the rate of their younger counterparts.

For seven years through 2012, the number of Californians aged 50 to 64 who live in their parents’ homes swelled 67.6% to about 194,000, according to the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and the Insight Center for Community Economic Development.

The jump is almost exclusively the result of financial hardship caused by the recession rather than for other reasons, such as the need to care for aging parents, said Steven P. Wallace, a UCLA professor of public health who crunched the data.

"The numbers are pretty amazing," Wallace said. "It’s an age group that you normally think of as pretty financially stable. They’re mid-career. They may be thinking ahead toward retirement. They’ve got a nest egg going. And then all of a sudden you see this huge push back into their parents’ homes."

Good news bad news

Georgia insurers received more than 220,000 applications for health coverage in the Affordable Care Act’s exchange as of the official federal deadline of March 31, state officials said Wednesday.

YAY FOR OBAMACARE!!

Wait…

Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens, though, said premiums have been received for only 107,581 of those policies, which cover 149,465 people.

So, 107,581/220,000 = 49% of policies are enrolled but not paid, and since many policies cover more than one person, 148,465 people HAVE NO INSURANCE and are enrolled? Thinking they are enrolled? Waiting for surprises at the hospital? Exist only in the mind of Zeke Emmanuel?

It is quite possible that the ACA is shaping up as the greatest act of fiscal irresponsibility ever committed by federal legislators.

Charles Blanhous - Mr Blanhous is ”....the director of spending and budget Initiative, a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and a -

public trustee for Social Security and Medicare.

Behind those enrollment numbers

Silvio Canto, Jr.

Once in a while, you read something that you want to share with friends and AT readers.   

Charles Blanhous’ paper on The Affordable  Care Act is remarkable.    Before I go any further, let me tell that Mr Blanhous is ”....the director of spending and budget Initiative, a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and a public trustee for Social Security and Medicare.”

His analysis is that the ACA is unsustainable, no matter how many people they tell us have signed up for it:

"It is quite possible that the ACA is shaping up as the greatest act of fiscal irresponsibility ever committed by federal legislators.

Nothing immediately comes to mind as comparable to it.

Certainly no tax legislation is, because tax rates rise and fall frequently, such that one Congress’s tax cut can be (and often is) undone by a later tax increase.

The same is true for legislation affecting appropriated spending programs.

But the ACA is a commitment to permanently subsidize comprehensive health insurance for millions who could not otherwise afford it, which the federal government has no viable plan to finance.

Moreover, experience shows that it is very difficult to scale back such spending once large numbers of Americans have been made dependent on it. ”

In other words, it does not really matter whether 7, 8 or whatever million people sign up.   The ACA is an actuarial disaster, promising more than it can deliver and encouraging people to get subsidies that they may not really need.

As Mr Lanhous points out:

"The ACA was enacted when legislators knew, or should have known, that they inhabited a fiscal environment in which such extravagance was unaffordable.

Deficits (and debt) are far higher today than when the other major entitlement programs were created; millions of baby boomer retirements are swelling expenditures arising from previously-enacted Social Security and Medicare law.

Someday historians will puzzle over the thinking that induced legislators to embark on a vast new spending program at the very moment it could least be afforded.”

Of course, maybe the legislators voted for the AHCA thinking that the Supreme Court would throw it back.  They could vote for something that they didn’t read, understand or analyze and hope that the Court would literally “bail them out”.  It was a good strategy until Justice Roberts surprised everyone.

Repealing ObamaCare is the only option to save health care and our financial future.  I just hope that the next elections move us in that direction!

And that’s the GOOD news

Rasmussen:

37% of Voters Fear the Federal Government

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of Likely U.S. Voters now fear the federal government, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Forty-seven percent (47%) do not, but another 17% are not sure.

Perhaps in part that’s because 54% consider the federal government today a threat to individual liberty rather than a protector. Just 22% see the government as a protector of individual rights, and that’s down from 30% last November. Slightly more (24%) are now undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

As recently as December 2012, voters were evenly divided on this question: 45% said the federal government was a protector of individual rights, while 46% described it as a threat to those rights.

Two-out-of-three voters (67%) view the federal government today as a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Just 17% disagree, while 15% are undecided.

Only 19% now trust the federal government to do the right thing most or nearly all the time, down from 24% in June of last year. Eighty percent (80%) disagree, with 44% who trust the government to do the right thing only some of the time and 36% who say it rarely or never does the right thing.

Seventy-one percent (71%) of voters believe that if America’s Founding Fathers came back today, they would regard the federal government as too big. Just three percent (3%) think the nation’s founders would consider the government too small, while 21% say they would view the size of the federal government as about right.

Here is the bad ..

Gallup:

Record High in U.S. Say Big Government Greatest Threat

Now 72% say it is greater threat than big business or big labor

by Jeffrey M. Jones

PRINCETON, NJ — Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.

Trend: Views of Biggest Threat to U.S. in Future

The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.

Who kidnapped Justice Scalia?

when you board a plane someone can pass his hands all over your body that’s a terrible intrusion, but given the danger that it’s guarding against it’s not an unreasonable intrusion.

Huh?

it can be the same thing with acquiring this data that is regarded as effects. That’s why I say its foolish to have us make the decision because I don’t know how serious the danger is in this NSA stuff, I really don’t.

WHAT?

Here

Lessons …

  1. There is a difference which is significant between a conservative (so called) and those with libertarian leanings
  2. Anyone in long term service with any govt institution becomes a captured member of the political class, with all the proclivities, and needs of that class, such as belief in their own institutions as ‘doing good and right’ in the hands of those with ‘good intentions’
  3. It’s time in the republic to consider a limited term for SCOTUS

Now I agree with Mr. Rand Paul on VERY VERY little, but I trust him more than any other to safeguard my freedoms FROM THE UNITED STATES GOVT. I wonder if such a person can also safeguard me from other foreign depredations, and I find SMALL difference between such a person and Mr. Obama’s policy results. Yet IF THIS CONTINUES through 2016, who knows what I will do in the primaries. OR, in November?

One thing is for sure, given Harry Reid’s latest hysterical screeds, and Mr. Scalia’s pro govt do good leanings, I have no doubt that SCOTUS would uphold any violent act the govt committed in the pursuit of the ‘safety’ of citizens against the ‘given danger’, as Scalia put it. I still had faith in the Surpeme Court.

Just one more lesson in ..

WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE BEING PARANOID BASED ON INDICATORS AROUND YOU, IT ONLY MEANS THAT YOU ARE NOT BEING PARANOID ENOUGH

The UNFORTUNATE EASTER MESSAGE: Nothing changed since 1945? Dude, nothing has changed since Xerxes’ adviser

A Holocaust survivor warned all the Jews of UKR to get the hell out. I have said many times since this **’juden to register’** story broke out that only a SCHLEMIEL would hang around.

A Synagogue in Demievka, Ukraine 1919

After all, even if this was a purely made up provocation, what makes it so believable?

Kishinev, Bessarabia 1903

Xerxes adviser, a long descended king of the Amalakites, was the first, on the eve of Xerxes invasion of Greece, to try to kill the jews (that we know of). Cicero, DECADES prior to the revolt from Rome which saw the Romans drive out ALL the jews from Israel gave a famous speech denouncing the Jews. And after the council of Nicaea it was all downhill for the ‘Christ killing’ stiff necked Jews.

Jews murdered by the Ataman Cossacks, Ukraine 

I have in other places published a 20+ page timeline of antisemitism (a history of historical acts and facts on which the Holocaust IS ONE LINE).

I was born in 1949. Growing up in the Bronx in a neighborhood which was about one third each white, black, and Puerto Rican, during marches, and sit ins, I had no doubt that whatever had powered what had occurred in Germany, the lesson in human values about racism, which all looked the same to me, was LEARNED. The purveyors of antisemitism were the American Nazi Party, the KKK, and their idiot solo followers. VESTIGIAL ACTORS. I learned that we are NOT all identical, but we make a team. If we choose.

On 9/13/2001 I ‘walked’ into an Islamic forum, and never really left, and suddenly the truth was obvious. Imams, Mullahs, Quran provided reference to the Protocols, fake Talmud quotes, lies about history, until I was defending the idea that the sky was blue. (A role easily relished, actually).

Mein Kampf still was a best seller. But that was not all…since, in Africa, Egypt, Turkey (Valley of the Wolves), Russia, wherever there was a history, and things got tough, BINGO. Whether it was Zhirinovsky, Stormfront, stories from govt papers in the ME that Jews really DID use the blood of Christians in Matzah, various European ‘political nationalist’ parties, Iran, and finally HERE with the now disgusting and so far small paleoconservative AND LEFTIST insinuations that Americans who happen to be Jews (may..a good word for perpetual suspicion) have dual loyalties and are not to be (fully) trusted especially if (as the left feels) the real problem in the Middle East is ISRAEL.

Jews murdered in the Ukraine

It is a long 2500 years of repression, suspicion, pogroms, accusation of bringing plagues, official ghettos, jizya, expulsions, slaughters, it becomes obvious that the Holocaust was MERELY the intersection of this history with the first applicable state capable of industrial murder.

So, when the real or fake paper arrives outside the doors of the temple to be distributed by masked men?

Find an agent to act for sale of your possession, get all the cash you can quickly get and LEAVE, and get to the ONLY sanctuary on this planet you can be certain of.

The people who scoff at that idea?

All history says they are the ashes going up a chimney, or those rounded up and simply never heard from again…. after being good little girls and boys and REGISTERING.

USA TODAY:Jews ordered to register in east Ukraine

You can always tell who you are by your enemies

Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to “register” with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Israeli media.

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee “or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated,” reported Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website.

Donetsk is the site of an “anti-terrorist” operation by the Ukraine government, which has moved military columns into the region to force out militants who are demanding a referendum be held on joining Russia.

The leaflets bore the name of Denis Pushilin, who identified himself as chairman of “Donetsk’s temporary government,” and were distributed near the Donetsk synagogue and other areas, according to the report.

So sorry, but wasn’t IVAN just claiming that Nazis and the Mossad were behind the UKR gangsters and terrorists?

The problem is, all these agencies have their own SWAT teams, their own police departments

Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League

Given what was going on in NV over the last week, worries about this are simply NOT PARANOID, and attempts to stigmatize criticism of these purchases by labeling them as paranoid are attempts to shush a slowly boiling frog population

After reports that now the US Post Office has joined the ranks of federal agencies ‘needing’ ammo and is authoring large purchases of .357, 125 grain hollow point (for killing your dogs?) …

It’s not just the USPS that is stocking up on ammo.

A little more than a year ago, the Social Security Administration put in a request for 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow-point” bullets. 

Before that, it was the Department of Agriculture requesting 320,000 rounds. More recently, the Department of Homeland Security raised eyebrows with its request for 450 million rounds — at about the same time the FBI separately sought 100 million hollow-point rounds.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also requested 46,000 rounds. 

Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, asked: why exactly does a weather service need ammunition?

"NOAA — really? They have a need? One just doesn’t know why they’re doing this," he said. "The problem is, all these agencies have their own SWAT teams, their own police departments, which is crazy. In theory, it was supposed to be the U.S. marshals that was the armed branch for the federal government."

It’s time to shrink, delete, eliminate and make sense of the size, scope and purpose of every federal agency with arms. These people’s careers BELONG TO US. Their pay is OURS, before we ALLOW them to use it, and WE are responsible for how that PAY OF OURS is utilized.

The post office does not need arms. BLM does NOT need arms. We have an FBI, US Marshalls, and these people NEED to be called in and every time that happens you can bet this HAS TO BE JUSTIFIED. And it is THAT reason which has seen every agency try to justify it’s needs for armed ASSHOLES enforcing the petty authority of self arrogating career executive branch diminutive emperors with too small penises.

SPEAK, People!

Bundy, BLM, Executive power, Reid and when judgment reaches past fact

First, congratulations on the naked guts shown by the ranchers, and their supporters, and a well deserved THANK YOU for standing up for MY PERSONAL RIGHTS, by standing up for theirs.

Second, whoever in the executive branch woke the hell up to what was REALLY going on (hint..it wasn’t about tortoises or cattle, or fees) in a confrontation of executive power vs the citizens.. GOOD CALL.

Third, whoever was responsible for bringing in armed federal rangers from out of state (as China brought in troops from Xinjiang to Tian an Mien Square in 1989) so that local rangers would not MUTINY if ordered to shoot at their neighbors (or families), FUCK YOU and you should be fired. You are PRECISELY the wrong person to be in any authority (here that is)

Now that all that is out of the way we come to a story about, what some (Infowars and WND’s Jerome ‘swiftboat’ Corsi) have claimed to discover about the underlying reason for all this. That Harry Reid and the Chinese in some kind of ‘green’ agreement wanted all that land for a solar array, and that’s why the BLM contrived all it did to get the ranchers off the lands. This story became a viral wonder.

I have a hard time with it at this point. It’s just larger in scale, of course than the things Tammany and Boss Tweed used to do, and it smells like old style politics. We need someone like Sharyl Atkinson to dig on this one.The answers will not be in NV. Alex Jones and Jerome Corsi are not objective reporters, they are ideologues trying to find facts which fit their narrative. They can’t bring it on this one.

But if there are facts to find, it SHUUUUUUUUURE would be nice to get rid of any moron(s) involved, R OR D.

Last, if anyone was on twitter as this incident grew and grew and grew and was hooked into some of the feeds, you can see the kind of impact this had even though the MSM except for Fox (only at the end) ignored it completely. The twitters were mostly NOT republicans, mostly were libertarians, but there were progressives worried what some right wing executive might take in their head to do next time(surround the Center for American Progress with DHS IED proof vehicles, and shut off all cell towers, jamming all HF, because they thought another Snowden was in there, or some equally noxious but no longer paranoid fantasy?)

And that of course, is the real import of what was going on in Nevada no matter what the cause.

The federal govt was uncoiling itself in all its power, and was seen to be ready to exert it against plain old people who thought they were doing right (right or wrong) ..rendering all those former kooks, and paranoid delusional extremists with their tri cornered hats suddenly to be objective realists.

Which, of course is PRECISELY why the major networks would not put this on TV as it developed. People might get an idea.
