Potpourri Pan America: Headline news — Commonsense America and Glenn Beck vs the world of the nonsensical?, and more

1.  Wait just a minute, why don’t we?! — a certain portion of the news media labeled it “the Beck Rally” and the “Conservative Rally” or the ‘White Rally”…   Why the editorializing? And why the attempt to destroy Beck?

2.  It’s not about being a liberal or a conservative — for some politicians it’s just about putting “free” money in their pocket…  And what’s Rep.  Rangel doing lately?

3.   Kerry (Mass.)and Crist (Florida) have a lot in common — say anything to try to get elected.

4.  Network news in someone’s pocket? — does anyone doubt it?

5.  Blaming the “tea party” again — what’s up in San Antonio, again?!

6.  Obama — Let’s hope the troops did not die in vain…  Pres. Obama alters speech a bit to counter the Saturday rally?

Glenn Beck — Person of the Week…

Talking head competitors of Mr. Beck continually complain that all the man craves is personal publicity, and blast him for this and that and decry the publicity, influence and money he garners…

Regardless of the outcome Saturday, for this weekend and throughout the year drawing the attention of his friends, as well as that of his foes, he is selected the Person of the Week

It seems that some of Glenn Beck’s cable and network whining competitors  simply resent that he is audacious and has gained higher television ratings and financial earnings than they — within a much shorter time frame than theirs…

Just sayin’

Backdoor immigration amnesty – the rumors turn out to be facts


For months there have surfaced rumors that the Obama Administration is feverishly seeking to find ways to keep the Latino voting bloc in its corner for the November elections — from considering presidential pardons for illegal immigrants to suing the state of Arizona to investigating Sheriff Arpaio in Maricopa County, Arizona…

Now it comes out that the latest step is for I.C.E. to stop processing as many deportation cases as possible…

It’s all about keeping the voting blocs in place and working to assure the current Democratic majorities in Washington continue…  That’s the new politics, folks…

General Conway’s words are noteworthy, especially since he is soon retiring

The situations in Iraq and Afghanistan are still trying ones, especially because of the president’s scheduling of withdrawal dates  for American troops…  Increased bombing of civilian targets, as well as military ones, shows that the enemy is quite cognizant that the Americans will not long play a leading role in the  two countries and that the local troops are not ready yet to stand on their own… 

Marine General Conway’s recent comments purposefully bring attention to those spheres in a pointed way, and present an opportunity to repeat a post from July 16 that has a bearing on the topic…

July 16:

Considering the reported ongoing difficulties there, it seems from this vantage point that before too long President Obama is going to declare victory in Afghanistan, maybe sometime between the November Elections and next summer, when the first troops are scheduled to begin withdrawing from the country…

He is in a quandary, though, because he does not want the stigma of being the U.S. President who lost the Afghan War…  But when he initially set a deadline as to when to begin pulling troops out, and at the same time decided to go small in the deployment of needed troops while expanding the role of the military mission, he seemingly erred in a grand way, and that decision is squarely on his shoulders…

Given that the president has a tendency to avoid accepting responsibility, a long tendency to blame the previous administration for everything, it would be no surprise if his advisors have been at work from day one of his presidency drafting arguments on how best to blame President Bush for the Afghanistan failures of the Obama Administration…

Just sayin’…

Potpourri Pan America: headline news – better to practice the golf swing than religion… And more…

1.  Obama interested in “convincing” Americans he plays golf, not that he’s a practicing Christian — seems like it…

2.  Hugo Chavez’s Socialism not helpful to the poor — but facts don’t bother him…

3.  “Los Zetas” in Los Angeles! — but legalizing drugs will help?

4.  Does “this” have an effect on Democratic Party calculations? — seems like it…

5.  It’s worth reviewing — How are things in Venezuela, how are thing turning out??

6.  Even Paul has said unemployment might be higher in 2 years — but the president is not mentioned?

JUST SAYIN’

Person of the Week: Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf


Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, left, executive director ...[AP photo]

For his participation in the proposed Islamic Center in New York City, as well as his being selected by the Obama Administration to be an emissary to the Islamic World — and thus being an attention lightening rod,  for better or worse?…

PanAm will not post today because of other commitments
