Dick Morris says it's looking good for Obama. He gives Obama 294 firm electoral votes and another 64 leaning to Obama. Which means that even if McCain picks up all the leaning Obama votes, he still loses. Of course he doesn't factor election fraud into his calculations. My prediction: the Republicans won't be able to steal enough votes. I could be wrong.

A new film about Clint Curtis and the theft of the 2004 election. The Republicans stole the 2000 election. They stole the 2004 election even more blatantly. The only way they will be able to steal the 2008 election will be to make it even more blatant. Let's not let them get away with it.

What I'm reading: All on Fire: William Lloyd Garrison and the Abolition of Slavery

The definitive biography of the great abolitionist. Dismissed as an extremist he saw slavery abolished in his lifetime.

Credit crunch banker leaps to his death in front of express train

Sources stressed that neither Mr Stephenson nor his company had financial problems that would have led him to take his own life.

But they said the financier had ‘succumbed’ to the stress and responsibilities of his taxing role, adding that Mr Stephenson had overreacted to the continuing financial turmoil.
I love that British understatement. Mr. Stepenson "overreacted" by throwing himself in front of a train.

President Bush says the economy is "strong"

And so I want the American people to take a good look at this economy of ours. The world is strong -- the world economy is strong. I happen to believe one of the main reasons why is because we remain strong. And my pledge to the American people is we will keep your taxes low to make sure the economy continues to remain strong, and we'll be wise about how we spend your money in Washington, D.C.

Tough times for rich people

"A lot of those people will have to sell their homes, they're going to cut back on the private jets and the vacations. They may even have to take their kids out of private school," said Frank. "It's a total reworking of their lifestyle."

He added that it's going to be no easy task.

"It's going to be very hard psychologically for these people," Frank said. "I talked to one guy who had to give up his private jet recently. And he said of all the trials in his life, giving that up was the hardest thing he's ever done."

In 1929 some of the these people jumped out of the windows of tall buildings. Just a suggestion.

Interesting article in The Nation on McCain and the POW Cover-up

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn't return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books

A Conservative for Obama

“Every great cause,” Eric Hoffer wrote, “begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” As a cause, conservatism may be dead. But as a stance, as a way of making judgments in a complex and difficult world, I believe it is very much alive in the instincts and predispositions of a liberal named Barack Obama.

National Enquirer: More on drunken drug-using slut Bristol Palin. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

The Palin campaign has confirmed that the emails hacked by "Anonymous" are genuine.

"This is a shocking invasion of the Governor's privacy and a violation of law. The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these emails will destroy them. We will have no further comment."
Meanwhile somone on Imageshack has posted another email screen capture in which Sarah Palin calls Barack Obama a monkey. Is this authentic?
Margaret Cho on Christians and Christianity:

Don’t fucking question my Christianity you fucking idiot assholes. If you continue to have a problem, then talk to God about it, not me, you fucking racist homophobic misogynist fake Christian shitheads. God thinks it is funny that I swear so much. He said I could use his name in vain or whatever. He just wants me to use it. He loves me. So fuck you. And I guess he loves you too. Even though you are fake Christian assholes. If you were truly Christians, you would let gays get married, and send them fucking presents from Bed Bath and Beyond!
Palin linked electoral success to prayer of Kenyan witchhunter.

The pastor whose prayer Sarah Palin says helped her to become governor of Alaska founded his ministry with a witchhunt against a Kenyan woman who he accused of causing car accidents through demonic spells

Good news from McCain economic advisor Donald Luskin: Things today just aren't that bad. I feel better already. Now if only I had a job. By the way, if any of my vast readership know of anything in the San Jose, CA area, please get in touch.

Whatever the political outcome this year, hopefully this will prove to be yet another instance of that iron law of economics and markets: The sentiment of the majority is always wrong at key turning points. And the majority is plenty pessimistic right now. That suggests that we're on the brink not of recession, but of accelerating prosperity

The CIA's "QK Projects"

I have posted several times on the CIA's still mysterious Project QKENCHANT .

The first two letters "QK" are what is known as a digraph. For example, there were numerous CIA projects, and individuals involved in those projects, and their CIA code names began with the digraph "AM" for Cuba. It is not yet known what "QK" refers to other than it does not refer to a part of the world.

There were other "QK" code names. Little is known about any of them. One, possibly of interest to those interested in the JFK assassination was QKACTIVE. According to Lisa Pease, writing in the essential book Assassinations, it was "a project of the Soviet Russia division in the early '60s for running attempted penetrations of the Soviet Union."

According to this document one Perry Harten, an agent for the Brussels World Exibition in 1956, was "considered for assignment in QKACTIVE, but no use materialised." If he had been utilized would he have defected to the Soviet Union?

Another project was QKHILLTOP, which according to a number of sources was a study of "mind control" initiated by the CIA in 1954 after reports of Communist "brainwashing." According to the book American Torture: From the Cold War to Abu Ghraib and Beyond:

One project, codenamed QK-Hilltop, was based at Cornell University under the direction of Dr Harold Wolff. At Cornell, Wolff was an earlier pioneer of human ecology, an interdisciplinary field incorporating psychology, medicine and sociology. When the project began, Dr Wolff asked the CIA to provide him with all its information regarding 'threats, coercion, imprisonment, deprivation, humiliation, torture, "brainwashing", "black psychiatry", hypnosis and combination of these, with or without chemical agents.'
It appears that a number of CIA files on QKACTIVE are available for viewing at the National Archives. Also available are records for several other CIA projects that I had never heard of before: QKBOIL, QKDEMON and QKDROOP.

QKDEMON has to be the coolest CIA code name to date.
Oswald and the CIA

In the category of essential books on the Kennedy assassination, one of the most essential is John Newman's Oswald and the CIA. I read the first edition some years back but a second edition came out in June and I would like to quote one paragraph from it, courtesy of John Simkin's JFK Education Forum.

The person who designed this plot had to have access to all of the information on Oswald at CIA HQS. The person who designed this plot had to have the authority to alter how information on Oswald was kept at CIA HQS. The person who designed this plot had the authority to alter how information on Oswald was kept at CIA HQS. The person who designed this plot had to have access to project TUMBLEWEED, the sensitive joint agency operation against the KGB assassin, Valery Kosikov. The person who designed this plot had the authority to instigate a counterintelligence operation in the Cuban affairs staff (SAS) at CIA HQS. In my view, there is only one person whose hands fit into these gloves: James Jesus Angleton, Chief of CIA's Counterintelligence Staff.

Theocrats to Pray for McCain's Death

Apparently at least a few "christians" plan to vote for McCain-Palin and then pray for McCain's death. One of them says that he plans to "pray for John McCain's salvation and speedy death."
Republican Congressman calls the Obama's "uppity."

They just can't help themselves.

National Enquirer reveals that they knew about Bristol Palin's pregnancy and promises shocking allegations about the governor in their latest issue.

Joe Vogler and the Alaskan Independence Party

In my previous post you will find a Youtube video of Sarah Palin warmly addressing the Alaskan Independence Party. Also it has been reported that she had been a member. What sort of organization is this and what is its history?

The AIP was founded by one Joe Vogler, who seems to be a rightwinger from way back. Margaret Van Cleve spoke with Joe Vogler on March 29, 1991. In the first clip of this interview he explains why he came to Alaska in the first place: he was opposed to the American entry into the second World War after Pearl Harbor. Vogler calls President Franklin Roosevelt a "dirty rotten son-of-a-bitch of a Communist traitor."

In clip 18 he explains why he considers himself an Alaskan rather than an American: "The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government and I won't be buried under their damned flag...and when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home to be buried in my country."

In clip 19 he states: "Is America destined for the trash bin? I think so, the trash bin of history."

The website of the AIP quotes Vogler: "I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got no use for America or her damned institutions."

Governor Sarah Palin addresses the Alaskan Independence Party (AIP). More on the AIP soon.

Someone on YouTube posted these photos of Bristol Palin and brother or son Trig. Isn't the question usually "Who's the father?"
