Monday 25 February 2013 / Hour 2, Block A: . David M Drucker, Roll Call, and John Fund, National Review Online, in re: Republicans may be willing to relinquish the loophole providing a lower tax rate on capital gains than on earned income because GOP thinks it'll drive rich Democrats wild, meaning that Sen Schumer probably will feel hard-pressed by his Wall Street donors.
Obama Trots out Full Alinksy - President Obama and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton share a common philosophical connection despite their different styles. Both are disciples of Saul Alinsky, the late community organizer whose book Rules for Radicals has inspired many liberals to demonize and demagogue their opponents as a means of securing political advantage. So when Obama gave an interview yesterday on Al Sharpton’s radio show, the resulting exchange was revealing. Obama used his platform to paint a horrific picture of what America would look like after March 1 if sequestration spending cuts went into effect. “We could see mental-health services affected, head start slots taken away. . . . It’s going to have an effect on cutting back on things like meat inspections, or folks at our airports, which means that airport lines may be longer,” Obama said. “Whether or not we can move Republicans to do the right thing is something we’re still trying to gauge.”

Charles Blahous, in re: Hoover, Economic Policies for the 21st Century: natl insolvency could occur from 2031, give or take a decade or so (90th percentile likelihood in 2037).

Monday 25 February 2013 / Hour 2, Block C: . Reza Kahlili, author, A Time to Betray, in re:RADIATION LEAKING FROM IRAN'S NUKE EXPLOSION Islamic regime fears poisonous clouds could hit cities. Yet another nuclear site: a replica of Fordow! In Kazakhstan, the P5+1 meet to discuss Iran, inability of IAEA to get clarity on what Iran has in centrifuges and processed uranium. Jan 21, 2013: event of sabotage or a colossal explosion in a cavern deep under a mountain in Iran while a delegation of North Koreans were in the room and perhaps delivering critical eqpt to help the Iranians process faster en route to bldg a bomb. Then some days later Iranians were present at the North Korean underground nuclear test. Fordow clean-up workers complained of maladies consistent with radiation sickness; quarantine around the site; regime has ordered millions of iodine pills from Russia and Ukraine. Immed after the explosion, when the John Batchelor Show reported it, Iran denied it and the IAEA agreed, although the IAEA had no information, no clue. It later somewhat retracted the statement . The president of the US and the P5+1 have decided here are only two ways to deal w a nuclearizing Iran: military – but Fordow is unreachable by military means and the other is appeasement (declaring Iran's nuclear program to be "peaceful"). US and P5+1 can’t acknowledge that there's a third way – what happened at Fordow (sabotage). Major Ali Montazernia has been executed: he was he head of security at Fordow at the time of the event. The Jam Imama Hossein University of Teheran, and from Tabriz and other cities: senior nuclear professors were working at Fordow, may be missing. Have the name of at least one North Korean who died at Fordow explosion. He was at research center of Yongbyon. Known that 76 persons died, at least. Regime is shell-shocked because Fordow was considered to be impregnable; IAEA asked for a written response and regime couldn’t provide even that.
Monday 25 February 2013 / Hour 2, Block D: Gordon Chang, Forbes.com, in re: Ham-handed Chinese top dogs forbid BBC reporters from approaching the Sovietskii office building that's home to their PLA cyberwarfare hackers in unit 61398. Haha – last PR idiots who banned the BBC were in Berlin, and they lost htat war. Xi Jinping is running this – and he's attacked the New York Times, which prompted the Times to tell the world, The story died; now it's alive again because a Beeb reporter stood outside the bldg, was grabbed by goons ho took all hi s photos, then Xi jammed the BBC, making him look like a total retard. He and his posse just insist on damaging their already-shaky reputations. Chine truly is guilty of theft, sabotage, stealing $50bil of intellectual property from the US, only, every year; abt $300 bil to date. Xi attacked the Times, WaPo, twitter. China has made itself the story. Our radio show has a lot of listeners in China. They believe as Communists that they can control everything. "Great Firewall: you’re sloppy!" In East China Sea, Obama met Abe, was not warm; China sees this & jumps in to confront Japan in the East China Sea. The Chinese "leaders" represent only their families with the billions of dollars/euros/yuan they've stolen. The unelected tyrants of Beijing.
