Stock and bond prices tumbled Wednesday after a bigger-than-expected rise in consumer prices sparked a fresh round of inflation worries on Wall Street.Or more importantly WHY has the Evil Liberal Media covered up the assault By Iranian Flying Saucers?
The Dow Jones industrial average (down 187.63 to 11,232.26, Charts) had skidded about 1.7 percent, or 200 points, with two and a half hours left in the session.
The broader Standard & Poor's 500 (down 17.42 to 1,274.66, Charts) index sank 1.5 percent and the Nasdaq composite (down 26.47 to 2,202.66, Charts) tumbled 1.3 percent after earlier hitting a new low for the year.
The selling started after the Labor Department said its Consumer Price Index, the government's main inflation gauge, jumped a bigger-than-expected 0.6 percent in April while the so-called core CPI, which excludes energy and food prices, rose by 0.3 percent. Both readings came in a shade above economists' forecasts. (Full story.)

Deploying National Guard forces to help secure the U.S. southern border will not harm the part-time force but will enhance its training for other missions, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said on Wednesday.Clearly after a period of time on the Border, More Guardsmen will yearn to continue the Fight Across the Border to root out the Iranian Flying Saucers that have been attacking America From Mexico!!!
Appearing before a Senate subcommittee, Rumsfeld defended President George W. Bush's plan to use some 6,000 National Guard troops to support border patrol agents even as the force is strained by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Rumsfeld contended that the use of 2 percent of Guard forces to help slow the stream of illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexican border will "not adversely affect America's ability to conduct the war on terror or respond to other domestic emergencies."

I know California needs well-educated workers and good schools to maintain our prosperity and quality of life. I know we need wise public investments and safe returns to prepare for 10 million more Californians by 2025.

A secular alliance that is battling fundamentalist Islamic militias in Somalia charged Wednesday that its rivals are bolstered by fighters from the Middle East, Pakistan and elsewhere, and said it has the bodies to prove it.Clearly The Glorious Efforts To Rescue the Wetlands In Iraq is growing into the Holy Crusade to restorer Secularism in Somalia!!!
"Foreigners were fighting alongside the local terrorists and were killed," said Hussein Gutale Ragheh, a spokesman for the secular alliance. No one was caught alive, he said, but among the dead were Arabs and others who looked like Pakistanis, Sudanese and Oromo fighters from neighboring Ethiopia.
The report could not be independently verified, but the possible presence of foreign extremists has heightened fears that al-Qaeda is making Somalia a staging ground, a State Department spokesman said Wednesday.
The U.S. is widely believed to be supporting the alliance of secular warlords, but American officials refused Wednesday to confirm or deny that.

You're the Falkland Islands!
You're pretty insignificant in the big picture, but when you have
influence, it affects the most important people in your world. Sadly, you don't
have much of a will or voice of your own, and it's hard to develop it when your big
aspirations are to live on a farm. Your emotional life is stormy and windswept,
but you have a few close friends that follow you like, well, sheep.

You know, to protect us ALL from those Iranian Flying Saucers!!!
A minor billing dispute between the Pentagon and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is threatening operations throughout the U.S. national security community.Remember Back In The Dark Old Days when the Evil Liberals actually believed that the Intelligence Community was suppose to be useful.... and then decided to staff it with Whinners....
Last month, OPM -- which currently handles background investigations and issues security clearances for the defense/intelligence community -- abruptly announced it was shutting down the clearance process for new employees.
First some important background: the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) took over the clearance process last year from the Pentagon, which had made a royal mess of it. The Pentagon agreed to pay OPM a 25 percent premium on top of their costs for investigating and issuing clearances; in return, OPM promised to straighten out the situation.
To make a long story short, GAO investigators found that the Pentagon tried to back out of the deal. They don't name him directly, but they indicate that Stephen Cambone, Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, decided he didn't want to pay the 25 percent premium, and told OPM to stick it.
OPM pointed to the contract. Cambone went crying to the White House, asking for the Office of Management and Budget to intervene (in his favor, we can safely assume). OMB told the two to go back outside, play nice and figure it out on their own.

Ah yes.... At this rate, will we finally be able to suck in the DOD along the way and just have them all go through Miroku's wind tunnel into oblivion, as the DOD expands its control over the Intelligence community!
