Mr. Derek Anthony West (AKA Tony West) Acting Associate Attorney General, the third highest official at the United States Department of Justice. He joined Morrison & Foerster in 2001. While at MoFo, West represented "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh alongside partners James Brosnahan and Raj Chatterjee. His sister-in-law, Kamala Harris, is the California attorney general.
These IPAB's, of course are UNELECTED GROUPS OF PEOPLE. Which is what Pat Boone explains in the piece currently being run on tv.
Of course, it is assumed the prez was only referring to the unelected group of people whose preliminary vote went against Obamacare. Then one of the judges, it is widely speculated and believed, tipped BO off immemdiately, so that he could publicly threaten that particular unelected group of people.
This link/article is valuable because it explains the voting process at the Court, discussing Obamacare in particular. It's enlightening, considering the President's attack on the Court yesteday.
From the WSJ:
"U.S. companies are booking higher profits than ever. But the number crunchers in Washington are puzzling over a phenomenon that has just come into view: Corporate tax receipts as a share of profits are at their lowest level in at least 40 years.
Total corporate federal taxes paid fell to 12.1% of profits earned from activities within the U.S. in fiscal 2011, which ended Sept. 30, according to the Congressional Budget Office. That's the lowest level since at least 1972. And well below the 25.6% companies paid on average from 1987 to 2008."
This link is a discussion as to whether a Republican President - specifically Romney, if he is the nominee - can get rid of Obamacare. And how Romney plans to do so.
This is interesting - let's see if this link causes a problem this time...
Yup, it did.
Explanation: I tried to post a link of an article from cheaptalk (dot) org. I got the link with a simple search on google. Had been wondering if anybody else "out there" was thinking that Gingrich should go all the way to the convention and then throw his delegates to Santorum, and then Santorum choose Newt for VP.

This is an interview done by G. Edward Griffin in the early 1980's with Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov on what the one worlders and the Soviet Union were doing inside the United States political structure. This is a must see video.

Another article I will have to read several times, but am glad that that Taibbi is still on the trail of this corruption. The $4 per gallon gas bubble article (see previous postings below) was from 2010.
This article is current:
The question we have to ask is why is congress - both parties - letting them get away with this? Where is the prez on this, when he keeps claiming nothing can be done about oil prices, as if he doesn't know any of this information????????
It's better to be thought of an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
That was advice Sen. Sherrod Brown should have used. Instead he decided to call his colleagues "Niggardly". Luckily he's not in the Tea Party which makes him automatically not racist!
If you are "scrubbing" info from a website, isn't that a good indicator of shame?
I was amazed to see on Leno the other night - Maher blaspheming his way through the interview - Leno laughing - but the audience - not so much. Here's this aging desperate atheist without a clue as to right and wrong.
Briefly on who Taibbi is - right now he's a free lance or contributing writer to Rolling Stone (& other publications). I heard him on Bill Moyers (in 2010 I think).
So having remembered him very favorably - he explains things incredibly well, and thoroughly researches his topics -- I stumbled across and e-mailed myself this article (below), intending to read it at some later date. I just read it today.
Congratulations, and good luck! You've just landed one on the democrats' partys' chin, from the president on down! YES-YES-YES!
Well, hope everyone got to the polls (unless you already voted absentee).
Interesting that even though Santorum and Romney are virtually tied, and this poll is dated yesterday, the only thing the mainstream media could come up with yesterday was that - according to them - Romney was just slightly ahead of Santorum. Whereas Rasmussen finds it the other way around, with Santorum just slightly ahead.
This is the latest I could find on the popular vote count in yesterday's primary, which also indicates that both Santorum and Romney are likely going to be awarded 14 delegates apiece.
(this is a cut-and-paste from Wikipedia - the actual chart looks better at wikipedia, with shading, etc.)
Michigan Republican primary, 2012   
Candidate Votes Percentage Estimated voting national delegates
Mitt Romney 409,120 41.07% 14
Rick Santorum 377,144 37.86% 14
Ron Paul 115,778 11.62% 0
Newt Gingrich 65,002 6.53% 0
Uncommitted 18,843 1.89% 2
Rick Perry 1,906 0.19% 0
I have been saying this (see linked article) ever since Ron Paul went after Newt for "draft dodging" during an early debate. It made no sense to me, because, being the same age as Romney, and having grown up in Michigan at the same time as Romney... by the accepted definition of draft dodger at the time, Romney fit the definition.
Paul is not too stupid to know that Romney dodged the draft, and yet declined then and declines now to lay a glove on Romney.
Now tell me, what do you think the reaction would be if, for example Romney launched "Caucasian Americans for Romney"? Or if Gingrich launched "Whites for Gingrich"?
The silence from the so called media is deafening. ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, etc, don't even attempt to look journalistic anymore. They're more like the propaganda wing of the democratic party.
On the Blunt Amendment (for religious freedom) ??
Definitely something to watch.
