Congratulations, Obama! You won’t hear that from Hillary.

Now the backlash. What was Hillary and her machine thinking when they fired the beautiful, highly effective Hispanic campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle? That they are showing the Black voters, that “See, we were not really pandering for Hispanic votes in place of the loyal Black vote.”

Too late. It’s time for the fat lady with the accordion to start singing.

A prominent member of the national Democratic Party has circulated a sharp e-mail saying the removal of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle was disloyal to Hispanics and should give “pause” to superdelegates and voters.
The e-mail from, Steven Ybarra, a California superdelegate who heads the voting-rights committee of the DNC Hispanic Caucus, was sent to fellow caucus members in the hours after word broke that Solis Doyle – the most prominent Latina in Clinton’s campaign – would be replaced by another close Clinton loyalist, Maggie Williams, who is black.
The e-mail noted that Clinton, who is looking to Latino voters for a boost in the Texas and Ohio primaries on March 4, scored heavily with Hispanics in her California win.
“Apparently, loyalty is not a two-way street,” he wrote. “Latino superdelegates like myself . . . will have cause to pause.”

Obama just missed winning the jackpot in Nevada — Hillary’s union activists muscle in. Now reported: election districts in New York’s Harlem had zero votes for Obama. More than 80 voting districts in New York had zero votes for Obama.

Updated when relevant reports come in.
Feb. 16, 2008:
Wire reports summarized in a 1 col.x 5 inch story burried within the Houston Chronicle mentions:

No (0) votes for Obama in Black voting district in New York.
Black voters are heavily represented in the 9th Election District in Harlem’s 70th Assembly District. Yet according to rustls from the New York Democratic primary last week, not a single vote in the district was cast for Obama.
That anomaly was not the only one. A review by the New York Times of unofficial results on primary night found some 80 election districts where Obama did not recieve even one vote, including districts where he ran a respectable race in the ajoining districts

This while Kucinich is paying for a recount in New Hampshire where he received (0) votes and low to (0) counts for Obama.

Has the Clinton machine been vote tampering again like they tried to do in Miami for Al Gore?

Why isn’t this a front page news article? Are you concerned that the U.S. election process is corrupt?

Obama wins South Carolina with 54% of the vote to Hillary’s 26%. Oops. The Bill factor didn’t help much, did it.
Maybe it was because the Clinton machine doesn’t have clout in South Carolina.

US Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign on Sunday said that it had received reports of voting irregularities in Nevada’s nominating caucuses, which were won by rival Hillary Clinton.
Spokesmen for Obama’s campaign told reporters that a Clinton party handout urged registration lines for the caucuses Saturday to close at 11:30 am, whereas state party rules said anyone in line until 12:00 pm was to be allowed to participate.

“Despite clear rules and timelines laid out by the Nevada Democratic Party that caucus doors should remain open and voter registration should continue until noon, the Clinton campaign encouraged their operatives to close the caucus doors at 11:30 am, a half hour before that deadline,” said spokesman Bill Burton.

“This caused confusion and led to people leaving the caucuses before having the chance to participate.”

Clinton won the state’s nominating contest with 51 percent of the vote, while Obama received 45 percent. The victory increased the former first lady’s lead over Obama, after she also won the New Hampshire primary on January 8.

Obama won the Democrats’ first nominating caucuses in Iowa at the beginning of the month. His campaign called for a full review of the Nevada vote but insisted it was not calling into question the results.

“We found an unusually high number of reports that the Clinton campaign was insisting that 11:30 was the deadline,” said general counsel Bob Bauer, adding that at least 300 complaints had come in.

“We are not calling the results into question at all. We want to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” Bauer said.

“We are going to notify the Nevada Democratic party that we want a full review of this, and make sure we have in front of us a full picture to make sure this behavior is highlighted and discouraged in the future.”

Like New Hampshire, Nevada was another do-or-die situation for the Hillary machine.
Right out of Stalin’s playbook, voter suppression was on and the pro-Hillary teachers unions, Teamsters and government workers unions went all out for the machine — Hillary.

And just like BIG BROTHER/BIG SIS, the truth of voter suppression and cheating were flipped around and turned on Obama supporters. This power grab is serious business.

To go over the facts here, the only publicly reported radio ad anything like what Clinton refers to is one that encourages Republicans and independents to caucus, but doesn’t mention Hillary.

And the Vegas papers haven’t found any evidence of the kind of straightforward voter suppression Clinton reports. The Obama campaign has suggested the Clinton campaign file formal complaints if it has evidence.

“This is ludicrous,” Culinary Workers political director Pilar Weiss told Politico. She said the union is “aware that some workers aren’t going to vote our way” and doesn’t engage in intimidation.

“The fact that they lost a lawsuit aimed at suppressing workers’ votes, and that now they’re trying to hold on to these baseless claims is ridiculous,” she said.

Weiss also said Clinton’s claim is “technically impossible.” Clinton supporters can ask union organizers — who are actively promoting Obama’s candidacy — to add their names to the lists of workers who will take time off to caucus today. But signs posted around the casinos advertise another avenue to get the time off: Workers can go around the union and ask their managers directly.

“We have found it shocking that President Clinton has gotten so engaged in promoting these accusations,” she said.

My friend and attorney nicknamed Marjon* told me about this story.

Turn out the lights, the party is finally over for Hillary. Her lawsuit filed to hinder casino workers from voting was thrown out by an honest judge.

Here is another example of how the Democrat machine is anything but democratic. Hillary’s teachers union tried to block out casino workers from voting in Saturday’s Nevada caucuses. Was the mainstream media reporting this? An AP reporter had the story on the wires, but very few newspapers bothered to pick it up. Meanwhile, Dennis Kocinich is paying $70,000 for a recount of the New Hampshire primary because of evidence of voter fraud by the Hillary Rodham-Clinton machine.

The Nevada results that come in Saturday will put Obama on top before Florida, South Carolina and Super Tuesday.

Here are the details from the AP report:

A union with ties to Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton failed in court Thursday to prevent casino workers from caucusing at special precincts on the Las Vegas strip.
The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge James Mahan was presumed to be a boost for Clinton rival Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential caucuses Saturday because he has been endorsed by the union representing many of the shift workers who will be able to use the precincts.
“State Democrats have a First Amendment right to association, to assemble and to set their own rules,” Mahan said.
Nevada’s Democratic Party approved creation of the precincts to make it easier for housekeepers, waitresses and bellhops to caucus during the day near work rather than have to do so in their neighborhoods.
The state teachers union, which has ties to Clinton, brought the suit against the special precincts shortly after local 226 of the Culinary Workers Union endorsed Obama for the Democratic nomination. The union is the largest in Nevada, with 60,000 members. The Clinton campaign said it was not involved in the suit.
The suit contended party rules allowing the precincts gave too much power to the casino workers and violated federal equal protection guarantees.
But the judge said, “We aren’t voting here, we’re caucusing. That’s something that parties decide.”
He said it is “up to the national party and the state party to promulgate these rules and enforce them.”
The Democratic National Committee ratified the state party’s rules in August.
Campaigning in San Francisco, Obama welcomed the judge’s decision, saying, “Any alternation would have disenfranchised maids, dishwashers, bellhops, people who work on the strip. Some of the people who set up the rules apparently didn’t think that we would be as competitive as we were and tried to change at the last minute.”
Nevada State Education Association — a pro-Hillary union — initiated the lawsuit.

The Ramadan fires: 10 wildfires threaten the most expensive neighborhoods from Malibu to San Diego

Mick Gregory

Could terrorists have started the fires? Please don’t ask. In liberal circles you are racisit if you even think Islamic terrorists would do this.

Update: News is coming out that several of the fires are looking like arson according to officials of Orange County. For continuous updates, see my other story “Coverup: Were Wildfires Set by Terrorists?”

ALERT: “Officials” blamed a wildfire that consumed more than 38,000 acres and destroyed 21 homes last week on a boy playing with matches, and said they would ask a prosecutor to consider the case.
The boy admitted to sparking the fire on Oct. 21, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Diane Hecht said Tuesday. Ferocious winds helped it quickly spread.

“He admitted to playing with matches and accidentally starting the fire,” Hecht said in a statement.

OK, that makes me feel safe. Officials know best.

Police did not release the boy’s name. Los Angeles County fire Capt. Michael Brown only would say Wednesday that he was younger than 13.

The boy was released to his parents, and the case will be presented to the district attorney’s office, Hecht said. It was not clear if he had been arrested or cited by detectives.

U.S. Capitol Police today (Nov. 2) were investigating the latest in a series of seven suspicious fires occurring in Senate office buildings.

A police spokesman said a small fire was discovered about 8:00 a.m. EDT in a 2nd floor woman’s restroom of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
The police said it was at least the 7th confirmed fire in the office buildings since late September. The fires are all suspicious in nature and Capitol Police are exploring the possibility that they are linked. You think? Nah, it was probably and act of nature, or a 12-year-old with matches.

Don’t speculate on siloed Islamic terrorists. Don’t scare the American people.

Muslim clerics practice dry run — bomb making materials testing security. Huge explosions rock Dallas

Mick Gregory

UPDATE:

Several explosions and a large fire rocked an industrial company near downtown Dallas this morning.

Remember Ahmadinejad boasting that this was going to be a long “hot” summer, especially for the enemies of Islam?

The scene was located near the I-30 and I-35 interchange near Downtown. Both highways and many other roads in the area were closed. Traffic was backed up for miles in several directions.

Several tanks of material believed to be acetylene fuel could be seen exploding and throwing large pieces of shrapnel throughout the area. Acetylene is used in welding.

This federal report has been scubbed of any mintion of Islamic terrorists. That makes me wonder how much was left out of this alert.

U.S. airport security officers have been alerted by federal officials to look out for terrorists practicing to carry explosive components onto aircraft, based on four curious seizures at airports since last September.

The alert was distributed on July 20 by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to federal air marshals, its own transportation security officers and other law enforcement agencies.

The seizures at airports in San Diego, Milwaukee, Houston and Baltimore included “wires, switches, pipes or tubes, cell phone components and dense clay-like substances,” including block cheese, the bulletin said. “The unusual nature and increase in number of these improvised items raise concern.”

The bulletin said the a joint FBI-Homeland Security Department assessment found that terrorists have conducted probes, dry runs and dress rehearsals in advance of previous attacks.

Security officers were urged to keep an eye out for “ordinary items that look like improvised explosive device components.”

The 13-paragraph bulletin was posted on the Internet by NBC Nightly News, which first reported the story.

A federal official familiar with the document confirmed the authenticity of the NBC posting but declined to be identified by name because it has not been officially released.

It cited various types of rehearsals conducted by terrorists before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon; the July 7, 2005, London subway bombings; the Aug. 2, 2006, London-based plot to blow up trans-Atlantic flights using liquid explosives and the 1994 Bojinka plot in the Philippines to blow up multiple airliners over the Pacific Ocean.

The bulletin said the passengers carrying the suspicious items seized since September included men and women and that initial investigation had not linked them with criminal or terrorist organizations. But it added that most of their explanations for carrying the items were suspicious and some were still under investigation.

The four seizures were described this way:

—San Diego, July 7. A U.S. person—either a citizen or a foreigner legally here—checked baggage containing two ice packs covered in duct tape. The ice packs had clay inside them rather than the normal blue gel.

—Milwaukee, June 4. A U.S. person’s carryon baggage contained wire coil wrapped around a possible initiator, an electrical switch, batteries, three tubes and two blocks of cheese. The bulletin said block cheese has a consistency similar to some explosives.

—Houston, Nov. 8, 2006. A U.S. person’s checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a 9-volt battery, wires, a block of brown clay-like minerals and pipes.

—Baltimore, Sept. 16, 2006. A couple’s checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a block of processed cheese taped to another plastic bag holding a cellular phone charger.

—Six Muslim “scholars” returning from a conference in Minneapolis of the North American Imams Federation were removed from US Airways Flight 300 bound to Phoenix. Passengers on the flight raised concerns with the flight crew when the 3 of the Imams stood up on the plane and said their normal evening prayers. And we are supposed to take your word for this? Standard custom getting on to a plane is to find your seat and fasten your seat belt.

Too bad we didn’t arrest the Islamic terrorists acting suspicious on dry runs in the months running up to 9/11.

The Valerie Plame Game You Did Not Read About in the Mainstream media.

The Bush administration is not allowed to respond to slanderous, damning accusations by Valerie Plame’s husband, Joe Wilson, because Ms. Plame worked in the office at the CIA (and pushed for hubby to go on the smear campaign trip)?

Who in Washington D.C. didn’t know that they were newly married and where they worked? The “cute couple” made the Georgetown cocktail party circuit and posed together in Vogue magazine before the Libby trial and Plame’s other lawsuit (which she just lost).

Wilson, you will recall, was “recommended” by his wife, Plame, to go on the fact finding mission to Niger. In the normal business world, that’s called nepotisim. Wilson stayed in the finest hotels, wined and dined like royalty and never actually found any evidence to contradict the British intelligence report that Iraq was trying to buy yellow cake uranium.

Wilson and Plame had another agenda, to attack Bush and Cheney. On the talk show rounds, Wilson called Cheney a “lying son of a bitch” and Bush a “liar.”

To this day, British intelligence has documented proof that Iraq was seeking to buy yellow cake and Wilson was the liar when he said he saw “proof” that the Iraq mission to buy yellow cake never happened.

Democrats to Tax Cigars at $10 each. What would JFK have said about that?

Look at how the Democrat party has evolved from the days of JFK, a president who loved good cigars.

Mick Gregory

This is bald faced communism, just like practiced by Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.

“I’m not sure in the history of man, since our forefathers founded the country in 1776, that there’s ever been a tax increase of 20,000 percent,” said Newman, who runs the Tampa business founded by grandfather Julius Caesar Newman. “They had the Boston Tea Party for less than this.”

When it comes to tobacco sales, cigars are just a speck compared to cigarettes. In 2006, the nearly 400-billion cigarettes sold domestically dwarfed the 5.3-billion cigars.

But cigars are intertwined with Tampa’s lineage.

Though the local industry has shriveled from foreign competition and domestic consolidation, cigarmaking still employs more than 1,000 in Tampa. About 900 work at the factory, offices and warehouse of Hav-a-Tampa, owned by foreign tobacco giant Altadis.
