Bloomberg in trouble?……

There is a story brewing in New York City…….It seems that the Bloomberg Administration, from 2002 to 2006, sent city money to ‘politically connected ‘ non-profit ( sorry but, Jewish ) organizations. The amount of money was over a million dollars. The funds were under the Mayors sole power. Does this story have legs?

Closing Gitmo isn't going to be that easy for Obama……..

The president promised during his campaign to close the Guantanamo Bay prison for foreign combatants. Well, it’s  not go to be that easy. The White House wants t o ship almost 50 of the people being held there to other countries, but the core group  is being shopped around for trials in the United States. Those trials would be civilian and military. This is going to set up another fight between the White House and Senate Republicans who are treating to shut down that body rather that have those people transferred into the US, proper. Stand by for the fireworks……….

Taxes!!??….what Taxes?

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner  was sent out to make sure everyone got the point,  that last weeks’ trial balloon from the Senate Finance Committee, to raise taxes on the middle,  to the rich classes, to pay for Healthcare was a non-starter….. someone remembered a pledge Obama made during last years campaign……….

Will the Senate shut down the 'Clunkers' program?

It seems that  the ‘Cash for Clunkers’ program is in danger of being cut short by  the Senate .  Money from the program has increased traffic in the nations car dealerships, and given the auto industry a much needed boost.  Some senators are worried because they have too many things to deal with this week before they take their summer recess. This program has moved out 250,000 new vehicles!…….surely a few more billion dollars added to the program won’t break the budget…and will definitely help the economy………

The administration acknowledges that the country is climbing out of the recession……

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner  has joined private forecasters  and others in proclaiming that the country IS coming out of the  worst recession in a long, long time. On ABC’s This Week,  he pointed out that economy has slowed its drop in the last quarter to 1%,  from a 6.4% drop the first quarter of this year. In a related manner, he predicted that the Obama administration would not ask for money for Wall Street ( withe salaries they are paying, he would get scratch anyways ). He also was careful to pin a prediction on a drop in unemployment to private forecasters. Finally, Geithner did think that unemployment benefits would be extended again……

Sometimes you gotta go with your gut………

In a new book out about the Secret Service……. …a presidents motorcade route was changed due to a warning from a female psychic who seemed so credible, and on point, that the lead agent had no choice, but to believe her…in the incident described here, in a post from CQPolitics’ Spy Talk………..the female seems to be credible enough to the local cops ( who had used  her insights to solve crimes, including finding bodies) and the agents, that they took heed of her assignation warnings, and made changes in the route for a Bush 1 visit in 1992, in Enid, Oklahoma.

There IS a misconnect between the US and Israel about Iran…….

There has been a steady stream of US diplomats and cabinet secretaries  traveling to Israel, ever since Obama’s less than satisfactory meeting with the Saudi’s in June……While Obama is trying the ‘jaw boning’  approach, in trying to get peace the Middle East, the Israeli’s are thinking about one thing……..Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear bomb………the Israeli’s asked Bush for permission to go the last time, and it was denied……I’m not too sure they are going to hold back a next time….. and everyone knows that an attack will wreck  any peace attempts in the region for long time (hence the reason for the vists?)……
