Oliver Stone: ‘I find Obama scary’
Politico, by Patrick Gavin    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 11/9/2012 3:34:47 PM     Post Reply
Each presidential cycle gets shrouded in the penultimate question, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” In Oliver Stone’s new book — “The Untold History of the United States” — the filmmaker, along with historian Peter Kuznick, argues that, “The country Obama inherited was indeed in shambles, but Obama took a bad situation and, in certain ways, made it worse.” Much of Stone and Kuznick’s book focuses on the threats posed by government secrecy and militarism throughout history and, in an interview with Politico Friday, Stone said that things aren’t getting better.

White House says Obama is not
planning a carbon tax proposal

President Obama has no plans to propose a tax on carbon emissions, a White House official said. “The Administration has not proposed nor is planning to propose a carbon tax,” the official said. Imposing a tax on fossil energy sources to curb greenhouse gas emissions faces huge political hurdles. But the idea has nonetheless received increased attention of late, especially as policymakers seek ways to address the deficit. The concept drew fresh buzz this week when an analyst with banking giant HSBC predicted that Obama might pursue a carbon tax. “A second Obama Administration could also

Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus has resigned, citing an extra-marital affair, NBC News reported. "Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position," Petraeus said in his resignation letter. "After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours." "This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation," Petraeus said in the letter.

OCEANPORT — As he lights up a Marlboro and takes a slow drag before exhaling, Brian Sotelo is a man who has finally reached his breaking point. Anger drips from every word as he peers out at the tops of the white tents rising over the trees in the distance. The depth of despair in his eyes is difficult to fathom. And he makes it clear he’s was not going down without a fight. We stood and talked in the cool morning air a short distance up the road after security at the front gate threatened to have our cars removed

Thank you to all the readers who sent this to me. Apparently from testimony following the 2004 election, this computer programmer makes clear UNDER OATH, of how easily it would be for an organization, be it Democrat or Republican, to “flip” the election outcome via a rather simple code. – a code this programmer himself easily manufactured. This is further confirmed at the 3:10 of the video where the programmer notes how the entire system can be “hacked” to control the final voting outcome.

BEWARE: Those who attempt to oppose Barack Obama’s second term agenda will face considerable, organized, nationwide opposition. EXCERPT: (via WH Dossier) Obama to Use Massive Campaign List to Press Agenda President Obama plans to use his massive campaign organization to assist him in his battles with Republicans as he seeks to drive forward his second term agenda. In an email Thursday to the Obama 2012 campaign’s massive list, Campaign Chairman Jim Messina indicated the organization’s role will shift from advocating Obama’s candidacy to using mass action to press for his policies.

LOS ANGELES – Now that the election is finally over, our long national nightmare can finally begin again. President Obama will implore us to "come together." In theory this soundbyte has heretofor meant that conservatives should shut up, abandon their principles, and agree with him. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claimes that he wants to be "conciliatory" while in the same breath threatening to reduce the filibuster as a tool for the minority to prevent mob rule. The filibuster has existed since the Founding Fathers, and Mr. Reid may wish to think

Just days after Tuesday’s presidential election, President Barack Obama invited Capitol Hill leaders to the White House for debt and spending meetings next week in order to discuss the country’s looming ‘fiscal cliff.’ On the election, he said that “the American people voted for action, not politics as usual.” (Snip) “You elected us to focus on your job, not ours and in that spirit, I’ve invited leaders of both parties to the White House next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together.”

NEW YORK -- Gun sales are up in the wake of Barack Obama's re-election on Tuesday, driven by fears of tighter regulations under a Democratic president, especially for firearms that might be classified as assault weapons. "Sales are up," said John Kielbasa, owner of Fernwood Firearms in Hankins, N.Y. "I had a guy waiting here first thing in the morning [after the election.] He came in, bought two AK-47s." Kielbasa said that he sells semiautomatic versions of the fully automatic Kalashnikov rifles, as is permitted by law. He said the demand for semiautomatic

Eleven days after Hurricane Sandy made landfall, hundreds of thousands of utility customers in New York and New Jersey are still without power - and they want answers. Unfortunately, the answers provided by the power companies have generated even more anger and frustration. When asked Thursday night when power may be restored, LIPA Chief Operating Officer Michael Hervey told CBS Station WCBS the utility is aiming for the middle of next week. WCBS reports one spokesman suggested power may not be fully restored until Thanksgiving.

A Facebook campaign which claims alleged killer nanny Yoselyn Ortega was not responsible for the deaths of two children in her care has provoked outrage. The page 'Support Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega' - set up by an anonymous group - is pleading for any information 'that could help bring the real killer or killers to be arrested.' And since the page was launched on October 29th - four days after the brutal stabbings of Lucia Krim and brother Leo in their Manhattan home - it has sparked fury from people who believe that

A shocking video capturing a high school teacher mercilessly bullied by her own students has been revealed showing her flicked in the face while the rest of the class roars with laughter. Standing before the applauding laughter of her students, the substitute teacher in Baltimore, Maryland appears half the size of two girls who approach her while throwing items and flicking her face. Taken two weeks ago from what appears to be a cell phone camera, Baltimore City Schools has confirmed the school to be Digital Harbor High, a

President Obama will today call upon Congress to work with him on preserving the lower tax rates first pushed by President Bush for those Americans who earn under $200,000 a year, but he will state his belief that voters were clear in re-electing him that they support a “balanced approach” to deficit reduction — meaning that the lower tax rates for higher wage earners should expire. The president, aides tell ABC News, will argue that the tax cuts for the middle class are something everyone agrees on, so there’s no reason for them

After attack on U.S. drone, Iran

Washington -- Iran said it took "decisive" action after a U.S. drone entered Iranian airspace in the Persian Gulf last week, a commander said. "Iran will use all its capabilities, including the relevant international agencies, to follow up on this case," Maj. Gen. Ahmad Vahidi said Friday, according to Iran's semi-official news agency ISNA. The Pentagon said two Iranian jets fired on an unmanned U.S. Air Force drone last week. But the United States said the firing happened over international waters on November 1. The Iranian action triggered a formal warning by the United States to Iran through diplomatic channels.

PHILADELPHIA could be facing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of gun owners who say the city violated their privacy by publishing their personal information and launching an interactive Web map that included clickable icons of revolvers over their homes. (Snip) In August, the city's Department of Licenses and Inspections introduced a revamped website, featuring a map that allowed users to view the names and addresses of some gun owners in the city, and the specific reasons why they wanted a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Police quickly asked L&I to remove the information,

Given Barack Obama's landslide re-election win, you might think that victorious Democrats would be feeling upbeat and positive rather than vindictive. But one Obama fan apparently proved a sore winner - leaving a disgusting message of hate outside a Republican field office. A dead pig wearing a Mitt Romney T-shirt was yesterday found on the sidewalk outside the GOP headquarters in Manhattan Beach, a suburb of Los Angeles. While police are still investigating the circumstances

Energizer Holdings Inc. will reduce its global workforce by more than 10 percent — or about 1,500 employees — as the company closes three manufacturing plants and streamlines other operations. The moves are part of a companywide restructuring plan for the maker of batteries and personal care items such as Schick razors and Playtex tampons. Energizer said Thursday it plans to save about $200 million in annual pre-tax savings through the changes. In August, Energizer first announced that was launching a review of its operations amid sluggish battery sales and heightened competition in the razor category.

For the chairman and chief executive of Murray Energy, an Ohio-based coal company, the reelection of President Obama was no cause for celebration. It was a time for prayer – and layoffs. Robert E. Murray read a prayer to a group of company staff members on the day after the election, lamenting the direction of the country and asking: “Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build.” On Wednesday

Manhattan Beach police were looking Friday for the person or persons who wrapped a dead pig in a Mitt Romney T-shirt and dumped it at a local Republican Party campaign office. The dead animal was found early Thursday morning at the GOP office in the 3900 block of Highland Avenue, the Manhattan Beach Police Department said. Witness Andy Gaeta told KABC-TV that he thought the body was that of a dead human when he saw police approach it, but then realized it was a pig, most likely from a butcher shop, with barbed wire


On ‘Self-Deportation’ —
The WSJ v. Romney

I’ve elsewhere addressed other shortcomings in this morning’s Wall Street Journal editorial urging Republicans to reassess what is portrayed, in the wake of strong Hispanic electoral support for President Obama, as their hostility to immigration. Here, I’d like to focus on the editors’ swipe at Mitt Romney’s endorsement of “self-deportation”: … Mr. Romney … often pandered to his party’s nativist wing (especially after Texas Governor Rick Perry entered the primaries), even endorsing what he called “self-deportation.” That may have endeared him to one or two radio talk show hosts, but it proved a disaster on Tuesday.

On Friday, author and former Bush speechwriter David Frum joined the Morning Joe panel, where he shared his blunt assessment of the current GOP. When asked who can lead the Republican party now, Frum responded that he believes the Republican party is “a party of followership:” The problem with the Republican leaders is that they’re cowards, not that they’re fundamentally mistaken. The real locus of the problem is the Republican activist base and the Republican donor base. They went apocalyptic over the past four years, and that was exploited by a lot of people in the conservative world.

Chrysler is recalling more than 919,000 older-model Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs worldwide because the air bags can inflate while people are driving them. The recall affects Grand Cherokees from the 2002 through 2004 model years and Libertys from model years 2002 and 2003, according to documents posted Friday on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. The safety agency said that a part can fail in the air bag control computer, and the front and side air bags can inflate while the SUVs are being driven.

Has the nation gone irreversibly blue? Did intraparty disunity sabotage Mitt Romney's presidential quest? Or is there some other explanation for the nation's re-election of a president with the worst record in decades? I received an email from a brilliant conservative friend who wonders whether Republicans can ever win another election and thus whether the nation is forever lost. I ran into a college student at church the Sunday before the election, and despite his strong conservatism and high intelligence, he admitted confusion about the candidates' respective positions after the presidential debates. My first reaction after the

It’s funny watching all the Bush administration alums on Fox despairing over the necessity of outreach to the Hispanic community. (Also at PJ Media, “Yes, George W. Bush Might Well Be the Last Republican President.”) These were the same people who refused to “dignify” the rabid coordinated leftist attacks on President Bush with a response. It would “just prolong the story,” they told us. We are still suffering from their failure to understand the left and fight back, as seen by the fact that Ohio exit polls showed voters still blamed Bush for the bad economy.
