This video is so well done comically, as well as painfully funny politically, I had to share it.
“CBS reporters in the affiliate up there in Alaska, on tape are saying let’s find a child molester in the crowd as a supporter for Joe Miller, let’s blast that. Let’s concoct a [Rand] Paul moment there, let’s find any kind of chaos so that we can tweet an alert saying “ooh, there’s chaos. Joe Miller got punched, or vice [versa].” That’s sick. Those are corrupt bastards, Chris.” … Sarah Palin: 10/31/10 Fox News Sunday
The Miller campaign blasted out an e-mail overnight containing a transcript and audio recording of what it claimed were reporters at CBS affiliate KTVA discussing story ideas. The conversation, according to the Miller campaign, was recorded on spokesman Randy DeSoto’s voicemail apparently by accident after an assignment editor with the station called him and mistakenly left his phone on instead of hanging up.
KTVA confirmed the authenticity of the tape Sunday but rejected as “absurd” the suggestion that reporters were trying to “fabricate” a negative story about Miller. link
Oh. Well, naturally.
No longer content with being “fake but accurate,” CBS has now become “accurate but untrue.”
Update (from Gateway Pundit) …
A Russian weapons company is marketing a new missile system that is hidden inside an ordinary shipping container. It can turn a ship, train or truck into a long range missile launcher.
Here is the video from WSB Atlanta.
From the report by Justin Farmer…
…. A hidden cruise missile that can transform a shipping container into a missile launcher… A Russian weapons company is advertising it for sale to anyone who has the cash to pay for it. Channel Two Action News went to the Port of Savannah to find out how the feds are combating this potential threat. They did not even know about it, until Farmer told them.
The promotional video for the Club K Missile system is part of the marketing campaign by a private, Russian-based weapons manufacturer. The cruise missile system is hidden in a 40-foot shipping container. It can fire four long range satellite-guided missiles from a ship, train or tractor-trailer.
The Club K is being marketed at international weapons shows as a military weapon. In the hands of a terrorist group the container could easily be smuggled into the United states. It is so new most international security experts have never heard of it.
“To look at an entire weapons system that can be put on a cargo ship and deployed is frightening,” said Brent Brown an international security consultant, “It is a pretty devastating piece of technology that could have all kinds of collateral damage.”

I previously wrote about my personal reasons for not joining FB in this post.
That post was to explain my reasons for not joining, not to encourage others to abandon FB.
Not only should FB subscribers abandon this abominable site for the reasons I have already posted on, this next one should be enough on its own.
At the end of last week Facebook announced that it had allied with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to remove what it considers anti-gay references from the social networking site.
According to GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios, he considers anti-gay references as “violent, hateful speech,” and FB has signed on to this agenda.
However, FB does more than a little side step in addressing their own policy…“You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user. You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence,”…when it comes to numerous FB groups that are opposed to Rush Limbaugh, such as:
I Hate Rush Limbaugh
I Can’t Wait For Rush Limbaugh to Die
Rush Limbaugh Should Die Slowly
The words “hate” and “die” are actually in the titles of these groups, but FB doesn’t see anything wrong with that, and they never will, they are committed doctrinaire liberals.
They demonstrated this clearly months ago, by shutting down conservative groups.
In the latest evolution of FB, now that they think they are too big to fail, they set the terms of political correctness that its subscribers must adhere to or face being banished.
My view today is slightly different than it was when I last posted on FB. Now, I wish they would pause and suffer the tortures of the damned at each and every one of the nine rings of HELL, ascend to the top and repeat the descent, for eternity.
Also, I’m certain the petulant libturds at FB will once again display their displeasure with my posting this, as my initial post was spammed over five hundred times. No other post on this site has ever received that level of spam, not even the posts that are critical of islam.
If that response doesn’t reveal how fascistic FB is, nothing will.
Just 14 hours after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, former Secret Service Agent Gerald Blaine heard footsteps approaching his post in the darkness. He pointed his automatic weapon at the chest of the approaching figure who turned out to be the newly sworn-in President Lyndon Johnson.
Blaine’s new book The Kennedy Detail is a first-hand account of the assassination and its aftermath.
Should be a good read.
I originally began this blog post with a riddle, written in binary code. Then posted the code-key. Thought it was cute and all. Unfortunately, WordPress wouldn’t go for it, so, I deleted it.
In other news, NRO now has a reader’s comments section. Registration required. I just noticed yesterday, and signed up as “el nuko.” Can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to comment on one of their articles, and I’m sure registration will fill up fast once the word gets out across the blogosphere. Now, if they will just begin accepting track-backs. Don’t be bummed out K-Lo. Pretty soon, y’all are going to have to spend way too much time moderating those comments.
Deja vu land deals? I saw this story over at FR, and couldn’t help thinking that it all sounds very familiar. A quick search for related posts, and voila. I knew we discussed this here and over at FR. Good stuff from Fedora.
Have a great weekend y’all. Me and the Missus are going down to try our luck at the Beau Rivage. Well, she will. I’ll be parked up in the sports bar watching college football. Ah, life is good.
Here are two posts for your consideration this evening.
First, from Andrew Malcolm at the LAT “Top of the Ticket”.
According to the Associated Press, Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com, says the president and the hockey mom [Sarah Palin] are 10th cousins by way of common ancestor Pastor John Smith, who settled in Massachusetts in the 17th century. [...]
And if that weren’t weird enough, Tyler is also claiming that conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh is also a 10th cousin of President Obama, once removed.
Malcolm lightheartedly concludes, “Since Thanksgiving is just a tad more than a month away, what do you think are the odds that President Obama invites his cousins over for the traditional American feast? “
I commented on his blog that while I doubt the Palins and the Limbaughs are on the official WH Guest List, stranger things have been known to happen.
For example, as Free Republic points out, Hawaii law HRS 338-18 defines a person with “direct and tangible interest” for the purpose of obtaining certified copies of vital records as … “A person having a common ancestor with the registrant.”
Now that common ancestry has been established, Palin, Limbaugh, et al can legally request the yet to be released Long Form Birth Certificate for President Obama.
Stranger things, indeed.
Tired of paying your mortgage? Here’s an idea …
Just demand to see the original note on your mortgage.
And, to make it easier,your friends at SEIU offer this handy-dandy tool to contact your bank.
In a few days the mortgage bank must tell you if they do in fact have your original mortgage note. And if not, then welcome to Easy Street. I suspect, if your mortgage is post 2006, the chances are good they won’t be able to produce the note.
Hello systemic financial meltdown.
Or, maybe not. This “crisis” has all the makings of a grand shakedown.
Consider this: Linkage between SEIU and Barack Obama is well-documented and without question. So, why would Obama veto the recent foreclosure moratorium bill, and take a position in direct opposition to his co-religionists at SEIU?
I think Obama is triangulating, and just maybe this was the plan all along.
From Zero Hedge …
If these issues do in fact escalate, the Administration may try to broker some sort of settlement… The endgame will likely end up being the extraction of material concession from the banking syndicate, in the form of systemic mortgage writedowns, with Obama’s blessing, which will likely put the 25% of homeowners who are underwater on equal footing with the other 75%.
1) Stuxnet is “Something Big”
How Stuxnet is Scaring the Tech World Half to Death
To date, no one knows exactly what Stuxnet was doing in the Siemens PLC. “It’s looking for specific things in specific places in these PLC devices,” Digital Bond CEO Dale Peterson told PC World. “And that would really mean that it’s designed to look for a specific plant.” Tofino Security Chief Technology Officer Eric Byres was even more ominous, saying, “The only thing I can say is that it is something designed to go bang.”
CNBC’s Diana Ollick who is by and far the company’s best (and only) investigative reporter, confirms various so far unfounded rumors, that the government is planning to institute a 90 day foreclosure moratorium as it deals with the realization of just how big and pervasive the mortgage problem is, and even worse, will soon be.
3. Consumer bankruptcies at 1.6M run rate Good thing that recession thingy is over.
September consumer bankruptcy filings once again are on the rise, with the monthly total hitting 130,329, 4.4% higher than the prior month. Overall, YTD bankruptcies of 1,046,449 are 11% higher than compared to the same period last year, as America revels in its newly found post-recession reality by going straight to bankruptcy go and not passing go. As Dow Jones reports, “the bankruptcy filings so far in 2010 represent the highest total since 2005″ and are on track to hit a record 1.6 million by the end of the year.
