why we must win against Taiwan

A Defense Department official was charged Wednesday with feeding classified information to an agent for the Chinese government.

A criminal complaint unsealed in federal court in Virginia accuses James Fondren Jr. of conspiring to relay classified information to a foreign agent.

Authorities say Fondren was involved for years in what spy-hunters call a "false flag" operation — believing he was feeding information to one government, when in fact his handler was working for another country.

Court papers charge that Fondren, 62, provided information to a friend named Tai Shen Kuo, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Taiwan who lived primarily in Louisiana.

FBI investigators say that unbeknownst to Fondren, Kuo was taking orders from the Chinese government. Officials say Fondren believed the information was being sent to Taiwan.
...
Kuo and a former Defense Department employee, Gregg Bergersen, were arrested in February 2008 on espionage charges. Bergersen and Kuo have both pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the case.

Well, is that really china, or is that the Taiwan regime....

And what does it matter that this is from an initial bust back in Feb of 2008.....

Managing Energy in a SaaS??? How Sassy! Must be Gay...

A startup founded by former executives from SAP and Oracle has rolled out a software-as-a-service offering designed to help large organizations reduce costs through better management of natural resources.

The Environmental and Energy Management system from Hara, of Menlo Park, California, collects data about the resources consumed across an organization, including energy and water, as well as the waste produced, such as carbon emissions.

It then recommends steps to reduce costs and meet environmental goals, and provides online tools for tracking progress. The steps can cover the gamut from renewing insulation at factories to using run-off rainwater for water supplies and switching to ecofriendly "biomass" boilers.

Well...

That would be an interesting idea...

But it sooo sounds defeatists kapitulationist kut und Runner - and obviously is seeking to stab our troops in the back, because it would only be relevant IF our Resource Warriors are not able to "kick their ass, and take their gas"... Which we all know is Mission Accomplished!

Evil Liberal Media Stabbing Troops in The Back With Defeatist Propoganda

For those who missed it, Bobblespeak delivers the goods on today’s Meet the Press:
Gregory: can the US still be the best in manufacturing?
[Google CEO Eric] Schmidt: yes we can lead the world in blogging, tweeting, and LOLCATs. [...]

Gregory: can you still make money in America?
[Caterpillar CEO Jim] Owens: sadly no
It’s almost like it was written by for us.
[ cf Bobblespeak for a Sunday ]
And to think that they want us to believe that the mere civilian president is some how capable of protecting america...

I mean, get real. ( for full on freak Value: Yo, this one's for all the young conservatives - it is so 'straight out of compton' by way of going galt enoughish... )

So remember Boys and NonPerkins:

Since, well, you wouldn't want to uh, thingus and pooh and all that technical bits....

{ fuggly for the slow readers, if we do not have the industrial base to maintain our Military Combat Capabilities, it is as IF we have lost both the strategic air war, AND the defeat of all of those submarines, seeking to make us the new Japan... and this without anyone but the DeRegulators to blame... Thank GOD we retain our massive Military Infrastructure.... sorta, kinda.... the parts that were not outsourced...}

The Alt-A's be coming

digby in Denial River refers to atrios's recast about the pending wave of alt-A forclosures...

The problem is that someone loaned money to people who do not understand how interest compounds.

For those who were doing their homework, some of them are enjoying the happy fun of having an ARM mortguage that adjusted DOWN, because that is where the market is going.

Your classic, we have good news and information - the good news is your ARM is going down. The Information is that this is occurring because of the growing problem with bad loans, not all of which have been sorted out as actual toxic waste, because, well Gosh Kiddies, these are not the Sub Prime Loans....

So as the glorious economic forgoing goes forward.... well... it will be next year some day....

Speakin of Asymetric Warfare....

For those who may be slow on the uptake.

If you advocate that "foo" is a death camp, and then sit on your fingers, being all pricklish about not wanting to get caught with a gun in your hand.... Maybe there is an ideological crisis that clearly needs to be addressed. Oh that's right - the ProWarWinkies opted out of getting into the combat zone, so maybe that is just one more part of the basic matrix - the failure to understand that 'fighting words' are not merely rhetorical devices....

So yes, we are watching a slow and steady rise in armed violence, and the ProWarWheenies are all prissy about how we should not hold them accountable for the fact that their Teabagging in the middle of their calls for an armed insurrection, have, well, been heard by some folks....

I would love to agree with Obama that we should be seeking some common ground....

But are the playPretends willing to step away from their war fetish? to return to a mere political discourse.

Or is that structurally an impossibility once one has already established that one supports state sponsored torture as a matter of course....

So yes, let us reason together.

What reasons did you bring?

what happened to supporting the president to support the troops?

Today's assassination of Dr. George Tiller comes 5 months into the term of our second pro-choice president. For anyone who would like to believe that this is a statistical anomaly, a coincidence that doesn't portend anything, again, you are wrong.

During the entire Bush administration, from 2000-2008 there were no murders.

During the Clinton era, between 1994-2000 there were 6 abortion providers and clinic staff murdered, and 17 attempted murders of abortion providers. There were 12 bombings or arsons during the Clinton years.

During the Bush administration, not only were there no murders, there were no attempted murders. There was one clinic bombing during the Bush years.

One can only conclude that like terrorist sleeper cells, these extremists have now been set in motion. Indeed the evidence is already there. The chatter, the threats, the hate-filled rhetoric are abundant.

[ cf The Murder of Dr. Tiller, a Foreshadowing ]
Did someone send the Go Codes?

Interesting that Komrade Prator Patreus gave it up with Petraeus Says U.S. Violated Geneva Conventions - What Will Cheney and Rush Say? - makes one wounder what is really being said, and by whom....

Remind me again about how we have to keep on giving up our dead in IranqIstania, so as to keep the terrorists over there.... No Seriously, Pimp that Piece of Ass To Me Loud And Proud.

More Reasons I hate Liberals.

The day before yesterday I talked on my cellphone with a friend who was not feeling well.

Yesterday I was sort of ditzy not all on.

TOday I woke up, had breakfast, noticed that my temp was 98.0F, and is now 99.4F - and....

Did you know that this is not the right context for watching I am Legend?

I mean, when Liberals can infest you with PhoneVirii as a part of the evil liberal HORROR.....

Why does Michelle Malkin want to stab our troops in the back?

I just have to wonder why it is that she is not willing to support her patriotic shooters who are willing to actually engage in the Armed Insurrection in a Time of Teabagging? And why does she pick on Phelps family thugs of the “Westboro Baptist Church” who respect no bounds of civility. is she like all Pro-Gay and destroy the family or What?

I mean, this is not the sort of armed response that goes with the typical ha-ha funny that has been the laugh riot of the NeoConClownCarCrew all these years????

She doesn't really mean to stab the troops in the back by trying to pretend that the assassination is not one of the funniest jokes that has ever been done....

Why does Fox News Hate The Guacamole?

I mean, why are they calling it 'murder' out there in Kansas, when clearly it was a 'directed killing' - or is Fox News Hopping In Bed with the RedKommunistNationalSocialistMarxianistPhalangistIslamoCryptoZionist Media in pretending that this is some one off case of an operative merely wandering off the rez....

I thot murder was what darkies did....

and yes, it is more Reason for nanciiPelosii to resign.

As you will expect, the FreeperVille Follies have already reached the conclusion that this was more of the same old ReichStag Fire process we have come to expect from liberals - and that their super sekret death squads are the ones who killed Dr. Tiller.

You gotta Love America - the land of whatEver....

Thank GOD!!! We have RoboBushCheneyParis!
They Shiney!!!
and fashionably fashionable!!!

And are not led into the delusions of the majikal wand of wondrement passing along extra constitutional powers that allow them to engage in asymetric warfare against americans engaged in lawful acts.

That is what happens IF you allow the civilian president to pretend he is a real president.....

Evil Liberals Blaming Godless Red Reagan for Deregulation!

How SHOCKING that the Radical Hard Left is in it's Own hate freedom moment of opposing themselves, without accepting that it was all caused by evil liberals:
Reagan... essentially ended New Deal restrictions on mortgage lending... that, in particular, limited the ability of families to buy homes without putting a significant amount of money down. These restrictions were put in place in the 1930s by political leaders who had just experienced a terrible financial crisis, and were trying to prevent another. But by 1980 the memory of the Depression had faded. Government, declared Reagan, is the problem, not the solution; the magic of the marketplace must be set free. And so the precautionary rules were scrapped.... We weren’t always a nation of big debts and low savings: in the 1970s Americans saved almost 10 percent of their income...

It was only after the Reagan deregulation that thrift gradually disappeared..., culminating in the near-zero savings rate ... on the eve of the great crisis.... All this, we were assured, was a good thing: sure, Americans were piling up debt... but their finances looked fine once you took into account the rising values of their houses and their stock portfolios. Oops.

[ cf Origins of the Present (Financial) Crisis ]
Notice that they do not once mention how Gay HomoZeXual Marriage Agendanista cause the sorts of False Flag Reich Stag Burning Death Squads that are running loose right now.

Ok, so it is what we would expect if we were to retreat back into the dark days before 911 when dearOldDick and friends made their plea for better psychiatric care....

Hum.... What if another part of the problem here is the On the Whiteness of the Whale - that there was this White Entitlement Problem as it creeped it's way through the GOP, and replaced the old skool fact based, show me, sober and serious attitudes? with, well, the Majikal Entitlement of those who are suppose to be the cool kids, except for all of those other folks whom the evil liberals are imposing on us.....

Can we really face the scary thot of returning the GOP to the upright position, and restoring it's traditional Process of
Bayonet Wielding Bible Burning God Hating Mass Murdering Butchers of our White christian america!
Just like when the Evil Liberal Ab Lincoln embarked upon his unHoly Demonic Jihaud against the only self proclaimed christian nation - the Confederate States of America....

I mean in that tent there would still be room for well... uh, hard left wing extremists like RayGun....

But is exterminating Enemies of The State really a crime?

Separately, it's also being reported that Roeder was once a subscriber, and occasional contributor, to the extremit anti-abortion newsletter Prayer and Action News. Dave Leach, an Iowa-based activist who runs the newsletter, said he didn't necessarily see Roeder's act as a crime. "To call this a crime is too simplistic," Leach told the New York Times. "There is Christian scripture that would support this."
( citing from Tiller Suspect "Suffered From Mental Illness" ]
Well that is finally reassuring.

Thank GOD biblical literalism is the basis for Sharia Law here in the USofA....
