ADM. ERIC T. OLSON-NAVY SEAL

Olson Picked to Lead U.S. Special Operations Command

TOOLBOXPresident Bush today nominated Navy Vice Adm. Eric T. Olson to lead U.S. Special Operations Command, replacing Army Gen. Bryan “Doug” Brown, according to a Pentagon release.

Olson would be the first Navy officer to head Socom. The command is responsible for about 48,000 elite troops, such as Army Green Berets, Rangers, Delta Force operatives, Navy SEALs and Air Force rescue teams. Olson is now Socom’s deputy commander.

Socom’s influence and budget — projected at more than $6 billion for 2008 — have grown since Sept. 11, 2001. In 2004, Bush designated Socom as the lead military organization for combating terrorism. In recent years, about 80 percent of deployed Special Operations forces have been engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Olson, a longtime Navy SEAL, has served in Israel, Egypt and Tunisia. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1973 and received the Distinguished Service Medal and the Silver Star.

Brown intends to retire this summer, military officials said.

Olson’s nomination marks another step in the recent turnover of key commanders involved in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Adm. William J. Fallon this spring replaced Gen. John P. Abizaid as head of Central Command, which oversees the Middle East, and Gen. David H. Petraeus succeeded Gen. George W. Casey Jr. as the top commander in Iraq.

One key military leader is likely to remain in his post. Bush is expected to nominate Marine Gen. Peter Pace to serve a second two-year term as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Associated Press reported yesterday.

“It would not be a surprise,” a military official said yesterday.

If confirmed, Pace — who served four years as vice chairman before becoming chairman in 2005 — would exceed the six-year limit for those positions. However, the limit does not apply in wartime and the president can override it “in the national interest.”

House Democrats Appear Set to Pass Senate Bill Without Voting on It
By Jon Ward
Friday, March 12

Republicans now expect Democrats to pass health care through the House with a trick only Capitol Hill could dream up: approving the Senate bill without voting on it.

It’s called the “Slaughter Solution” (prepare for a weekend of endless TV gabbing about it).

And after debating House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on the chamber floor, Minority Whip Eric Cantor emerged convinced that Democrats are going to use the tactic, and that they won’t allow Republicans, and the public, to see the text of any legislation for 72 hours before a vote.

“I can infer that we’re going to see a rule that will deem the Senate bill as having passed, and at the same time not even have 72 hours to even look at what they are passing,” Cantor, a Virginia Republican, said in an interview outside his office at the Capitol.

“The outrage to me on the part of the public is going to be focused on the fact that there is not even an up or down vote, a clean up or down vote,” Cantor said.

Here’s the reason Democrats are using such a complicated procedure: many in the House completely do not trust the Senate to pass fixes to the bill passed by the Senate in December. But according to the rules of reconciliation, the House must go first in passing the Senate bill and passing a reconciliation fix.

So House Democrats have been searching for a way to alleviate members’ concerns that if they vote for the Senate bill and the Senate does nothing to fix it, they will be hung out to dry as having supported a piece of legislation that many across the country dislike, either for spending reasons, or because of special provisions like the extra money for Nebraska’s Medicaid population (the “Cornhusker kickback”).

Technically, using the “Slaughter solution,” they’ll never have voted for the bill they find odious, even if their vote on the reconciliation legislation will have been the vote that passed the Senate bill into law.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, alluded to all this at her weekly press conference Friday.

“There are certain assurances that they want and that we will get for them before I ask them to take a vote,” Pelosi said.

The “Slaughter solution” is named for House Rules Committee Chairman Louise Slaughter, the New York Democrat who came up with the idea. She told the Daily Caller on Thursday that the chances of her procedure being used were “pretty good.”

Despite doubt among some on Capitol Hill on whether the “Slaughter solution” was feasible, Cantor expressed no doubt that the tactic could be used.

“It’s a self-executing rule. It is akin to passage but hidden in a rule as a side-note, passing the 2,700-page, $1 trillion bill, oh by the way,” he said.

Hoyer rejected the idea that Republicans have not had enough time to review the legislation.

“You have had months to review the substance of that bill. You don’t like it. We understand. You’re going to oppose it. We understand that as well. The fact of the matter is you cannot say you have had no notice of each and every provision for over two months,” said Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat.

Cantor said he wanted 72 hours to review the final text of the reconciliation bill.

“The reconciliation bill is new text. He claims it’s old hat, but this is clearly where they’re reconciling differences,” Cantor said, expressing concern that Democrats would rush the final text to the House floor for a vote to keep “sweeteners” used to buy off votes from being discovered.

Democrats are coalescing around a schedule for the bill’s route to the House floor for a vote. They are expecting a final score from the Congressional Budget Office later today.

On Monday, the House Budget Committee will mark the bill up, leading to an expected vote in the Rules Committee on Wednesday, with a final vote by the full House possible next weekend.

The question remains, however, whether Pelosi will even be able to round up enough votes to pass a bill.

Momentum continued to go the wrong direction for her on Friday, as two more Democrats said they are opposed to the bill.

WOODS HOLE SHIP OFF COAST OF CHILE

Woods Hole scientists ‘protected’ off Chile coastText Size: A | A | A

February 28, 2010WOODS HOLE — Several scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution were on research boats off the coast of Chile during yesterday’s earthquake and after shocks.

The 60 WHOI personnel on the research vessel Atlantis were 200 miles west of Arica, Chile, when the 8.8-magnitude quake hit early yesterday morning, said Al Suchy, director of ship operations at WHOI. No one associated with WHOI was injured by the quake and the ship did not experience any tsunami-related trouble, he said.

“Because of the distance, they were pretty well protected at that point,” Suchy said of the Atlantis crew. “Being on the water is actually the best place to be for something like that.”

The ship is on a biological sampling voyage, Suchy said, and has been on the water since leaving Iquique, Chile, on Jan. 29.

The Atlantis is scheduled to head back to port in Arica, Chile, on Wednesday, but Suchy said the damage in the port city may be too severe for the ship to dock.

Suchy has not yet been able to get in touch with WHOI’s contacts in Arica and said he may have to redirect the ship to another port, possibly as far away as Panama.

Also off the coast of Chile are five other WHOI researchers on the research vessel Melville — owned by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California — for a 24-day mission to examine the Chile Triple Junction, where three tectonic plates intersect.

Suchy said he has limited responsibility for the Melville voyage, but added he received an e-mail yesterday from the Melville crew reporting no injuries or problems resulting from the earthquake.

FRESHMAN CONGRESSMAN QUESTIONS OBAMA

AUDIT THE FEDERAL RESERVE!!

// //

Bernanke Banner
      With Congress spending TRILLIONS of taxpayer dollars and the Federal Reserve literally creating money out of thin air, it’s never been more important you and I force Congress to Audit the Fed.

      That’s why it is vital you sign this petition to your Senators and Representative DEMANDING they support Rep. Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed Bill.

      After you sign, please make a contribution to Campaign for Liberty to get more folks in this fight.  Unlike the Federal Reserve, Campaign for Liberty cannot just print money out of thin air to spread the word.

“Audit the Federal Reserve”
Petition to the US Congress

Whereas:   The Federal Reserve refuses to give a public accounting of the TRILLIONS in recent taxpayer-backed loans; and
Whereas:   Congress has the responsibility to force a public audit of the Federal Reserve, and the American people deserve to know how their tax dollars are being spent; and
Whereas:   Allowing the Fed to remain out of control and shrouded in secrecy clearly allows for abuse and the continued stealing of our tax dollars through inflation and unaccounted electronic bank “loans”; and
Whereas:   The Federal Reserve’s abuses lead to constant economic crises like the current housing crisis, international banking crisis and the resulting chaos; and
Whereas:   The Federal Reserve System forces fuel, food, housing, medical care and education costs upward, meaning that everyone who is NOT on the government dole is forced to make do with less as the value of money slowly decreases; and
Whereas:   History shows us that riots, violence and full-scale police states can result when people finally realize fiat money isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on and REFUSE to accept it;
Therefore:   I urge you to cosponsor and make every effort to seek roll call votes on the Audit the Fed Bill, H.R. 1207/S 604.
Please submit the information below to sign the petition. Copies will be sent to
      your Senators and Congressman.

Senior Citizens May Not Get Social Security COLA for Years Says Kaiser Medicare Brief
Senior Journal ^ | June 29, 2009

Senior Citizens May Not Get Social Security COLA for Years Says Kaiser Medicare Brief

No Social Security increase also means higher Medicare Part B fees for many seniors says the analysis.

June 29, 2009 – Senior citizens are not expected to receive a cost of living adjustment (COLA) in 2010 – for the first time ever. What’s worse, they may not receive an increase for the next three years. And, it keeps getting worse – no COLA means high Medicare Part B premiums for about a quarter of all Medicare beneficiaries, according to an analysis by the the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

The Medicare Issue Brief, based on the most recent projections of the Medicare and Social Security Trustees, explains the relationship between the Social Security COLA and the Medicare Part B premium, and the implications for those who are covered by both programs.

With Medicare Part B spending expected to continue to increase in the coming years, beneficiary premium contributions are also expected to rise to cover 25 percent of total Part B spending as required by law. Not all Medicare beneficiaries will be affected. About three in four Medicare beneficiaries are protected by a “hold-harmless” provision in the law that ensures that their Medicare premiums do not increase more than any increase in Social Security premiums, according to the report.

Thus, the higher premiums would fall on the remaining one quarter of beneficiaries – with monthly premiums expected to rise from $96.40 this year to $104.20 in 2010 and $120.20 in 2011.

Because most in this group are low-income beneficiaries eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid benefits, Medicaid would pay the cost of the monthly Part B premium, increasing Medicaid costs for states.

Higher-income beneficiaries who are required to pay an income-related surcharge in addition to the monthly Part B premium would also pay the higher rate, as would any new enrollees who did not receive Social Security payments in the previous year and/or were not covered under Part B.

This issue brief was prepared by Tricia Neuman and Juliette Cubanski of the Kaiser FamilyFoundation. Lisa Potetz of Health Policy Alternatives provided http://www.kff.org/medicare/upload/7912.pdf

No COLA raise for Seniors, No COLA raise for retired Military, cuts to Medicare and Tricare, we families who depend on Tricare for our secondary health insurance after our spouses spent 20 or more years serving their country are going to be getting double screwed with the cuts and increases in premiums and fees.

In the Hannity interview the remark went totally over Hannity’s head. I don’t think any of the talk radio host know what Tricare is!

TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:

Link to Tricare cuts

This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollee’s cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.)

The lesson here is, live by the government, die by the government.

Meanwhile, the Obama Administration is making sweetheart deals with unions to get its execrable pile-of-junk healthcare bill passed.

Ole Matt said last June that it would be 2 years, obviously they are planning for a huge inflation rate for the next 3 years.

Plan on cutting the budget by cutting the benes for SS/Military, BUT does this apply to FED EMPLOYEES.
Wonder if only “working” FED employees get an increase.
LIKE CONGRESS.
Anyone know the answer to this one.

You lose. I am a retired federal employee. Our COLAs are tied directly the CPI-W figures just like SS. We get the same increases or lack thereof. No raise this year and probably none next year at a minimum. Active federal employees use a different system for the computation of their increases, which amount to 2% this year.

Thus, the higher premiums would fall on the remaining one quarter of beneficiaries – with monthly premiums expected to rise from $96.40 this year to $104.20 in 2010 and $120.20 in 2011.
NOT TRUE!!!

I turn 65 next month. I have already been informed by the SSA that my premiums for Medicare Pt. B will be $110.50/mo. The SSA also says that after they contact the IRS, this amount may increase (retro-actively to Feb.1) depending on my total income.

I’m not complaining about not getting COLA or the amount of my Medicare premiums, just stating a fact.

Fed employees just got a pay raise, and congress gets one automatically each year plus extra perks. And it is not a tiny raise like they give SS, disabled Vets, retired Military and disabled on SS.
It’s just not the benefit cuts, it’s the fee hikes along with the inflation that will really put the squeeze on us seniors. We are already feeling the pinch with increased cost of living for food, gas etc. Along with the pay cut while small $10.80 with the income tax fiddling the demwits did we’ve had to cut corners where ever we can.

And when seniors have less available extra cash then they don’t contribute to church or charities, give presents to grand kids, etc….snowball effect on the economy.

I planted a veggie garden last year and intend to expand it this year. The old Victory Garden…home owner’s association can go fly a kite, if they don’t like it. I hid the green beans in behind the azeleas out front and on the side of the house. We have a huge hill for a back yard.

Yes. I suspect the majority of Seniors voted for Zero. I am so sorry that they weren’t more curious about what he would REALLY do in office, instead of what he SAID he would do. Those of us who looked beneath the smarmy veneer KNEW what was coming with Zero.

I remember during the 2nd worst Presidents aftermath. A SS eligible woman was living in her home alone.
Her daughter would come over to check on her. She would always check her cabinets and fidge to make sure she had plenty of food.
She collapsed one day and a neighbor called the ems.
When the Doc told her that her Mother was suffering from MALNUTRITION, she couldn’t believe it.
When she went to her home she found that her Mother had neatly placed the empty boxes neatly back in the Cabinets.
Empty milk cartons in the fridge etc.

Expect muchh more of this type of thing happening.
My question is, will they get medical care? Useless eaters you know.

No they didn’t. The following is pulled from a left-of-center site, but there’s plenty more out there that can be collaborated on a quick search:

Election Day was full of historic results for Barack Obama. But his performance among seniors (age 65 and over) provided one of the few lower points, as exit polls show that Obama lost to John McCain among seniors 45 to 53 percent. According to the exit polls, while Obama made gains with nearly all groups compared to John Kerry, this did not happen with seniors.

Hell that would not be too bad if actually there was no inflation. I wonder what is in the ‘market basket’ that evidences no inflation? Obviously it must exclude food, meds, taxes, and rent. Oh also, senior income has gone down along with their investment interest rates hovering around 1%. It’s lose-lose for seniors.

Unlike among the electorate as a whole, Obama was not able to assuage the fear among white seniors that the change he would bring would be detrimental to their lives. (from the site) I stand corrected. It would appear that at least white Seniors realized the danger of an Obama Administration……and it turns out they were right.

[[But I’ll bet that al federal government employees and retirees will receive their 3% annual raises and increasess!!!]]

You bet they did- while seniors, many who live on only $600 a month because they all worked minimum wage jobs, and hterefore get only the bare minimum SS now, struggle to get by each month, congress, who make an average of $80,000 per year, gave themselves an average of $4500 COLA (they call it a pay raise, but it’s a COLA make no mistake about it). While seniors receiving the minimum would have had an increase in their ‘COLA’ increase of only $12 or so dollars per month, they congress criminals gave themsleves an increase of al,ost $450 per month increase to go along with hteir swanky $80,000 a year ‘salary’ for hwich they do hardly any work- many times only workign about 7-15 days per month, and not even putting in full days (Note- Congress only worked 7 days last Febuary, and those weren’t even full days- they cotinually give htemselves ‘vacations’, sometimes for a month or even more- apparently htinking they’ve ‘earned’ it, while Seniors sit in their homes freezing and having little to eat and paying through the nose for overpriced medications.

Or insurance rate icnreases, water bill increases, electricity price increases, gasoline price increases, (we’re almost over $3.00 a gallon again, and htere’s been ‘no COL increase’?), no price of milk increase, cheeze, eggs, etc etc etc- however, ALL these and much more has indeed risen over the past year, but by golly, the Fed declares there’s been no COL increase, so thsoe ‘greedy senoirs’ who are ‘sponging off hte govenrment’ get no COL increase, but Fed employeees get their COL increase per usual

“Obama made gains with nearly all groups compared to John Kerry, this did not happen with seniors.”

Seniors had many more years of experience/seasoning and thus apparently were far better BS detectors than young voters who voted with their hearts rather than their heads.

Obama showed his gratitude towards young voters by endorsing a mandate that they all buy health insurance at actuarially unfair premiums that ensured they would subsidize older people (whose incomes typically are far higher than those of a young worker just starting a career). Of course, in the election campaign, Obama lambasted Hillary for proposing just such a mandate, but his stringent opposition to an individual mandate was just one of many campaign promises tossed aside when it became politically convenient to do so.

These same youngsters also will pay through the nose for the tsunami of deficits being incurred under Obama’s watch.

Sorry guys, the strongest republican vote of any age group in 2008 was the senior citizens, second was the boomers, younger than the boomers was a huge turn out for Obama and the 18-29 year olds went 66% Obama.

It’s not just seniors on SS, but our Veterans on VA disability, our retired Military, who served for lower pay than a civilian would have gotten for the same job.
It’s also the cuts to their benefits the increase in fees for those cut benefits, the rising cost of food, utilities. You put all that in one package and your really hurt a lot of Americans.

We are hearing MORE property taxes here in Memphis, they didn’t fund the schools last year or this year, now they want us to pay more property taxes for it. (It’s a cost sharing with the county, Memphis didn’t pay their share.)

MASSACHUSETTS MIRACLE

Mass. democrats nominee- martha coakley- keeps innocent man in prison

The fellsacre day school case back in the 80′s was a child molestation case. gerald Amirault, his mother and sister were accused of raping children at the family’s daycare school in Malden Mass. The children allegations were that they were taken to a magic room for sex play. raped with a 2 foot bucher knife and other acts of sodomy by a “bad clown” naked children tied to trees in view of a highway.

There was not one sherd of physical  evidence to support the allegations. Not one parent noticed any unusual behavior in their children.

There were no witnesses to the alleged acts of abuse.

Not one student ever claimed to be abused until the child  therapist arrived.

The Amirault family had been running the school for 18 yrs. and there was not one case of child molestation against the family.

In the most outrageous miscarriage of justice in mass. since the Salem witch trials  Gerald Amirault was convicted of raping annd assulting six girls and three boys and sentenced to 30 to 40 yrs. in prison. the following year Violet and cheryl were convicted of raping and assulting 3 girls and a boy and were sentenced to 8 to 20 yrs.

The children in this case denied being abused all along and the police and therapist refused to believe them saythat in these cases “no” can mean “yes”‘

In this case the police told the parents what questions to ask the children. This case is now being used in law schools as how not to interview children in this type of case. Amiraults mother and sister were released after serving 8 yrs in prison for crimes that never occurred.

In july of 2001 the mass. parol board voted unaimously to grant Amirault clemency. middelsex district attorney Martha Coakley put on a full court press to keep Amirault in prison to simply further her political ambitions. Amiraults clemency was denied.

thanks to Martha , Amirault spent another 3yrs. in prison

Not until the Wall st. Journal started to take a look into the case and did an investigation of their own did this case get looked at again.

Gerald Amirault was paroled. 3yrs. later.

THE FLAG CODE

WE ARE A NATION IN GREAT DISTRESS!! It is in NO WAY a sign of disrespect to our great Flag to do this! Pass it around! WE NEED TO MAKE A STATEMENT, and they are NOT LISTENING TO US!! Maybe they’ll get a little frightened if they see this on MILLIONS OF HOMES across our great Country!

Here is the relevant part of the US Code of Laws regarding how to fly the flag when in distress:

THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976

§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

Most individuals who have served in the military service of our nation will (or should) recognize this signal.

Lets make sure that those in Washington that are supposed to be serving us RECOGNIZE OUR DISTRESS!

A SOLDIER’S CHRISTMAS

A SOLDIER’S CHRISTMAS

Soldiers Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone,
in a one bedroom house made of plaster and stone.

I had come down the chimney with presents to give,
and to see just who in this little house lived.

As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see,
No tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.

No Stockings by mantle, just boots filled with sand,
On the wall hung pictures of far distant lands.

With medals and badges, awards of all kinds,
A sobering thought came through my mind.

For this house was different, it was dark and dreary,
The home of a soldier, I could now see clearly.

The soldier lay sleeping, silent, alone,
Curled up on the floor in this one bedroom home.

The face was so gentle, the room in such disorder,
Not how I picture a United States Soldier.

Was this the hero of whom I’d just read?
Curled up on a poncho, the floor for a bed?

I realized the families that I saw this night,
owed their lives to these soldiers who were willing to fight.

Soon round the world, the children would play,
and grownups would celebrate a bright Christmas day.

They all enjoyed freedom each month of the year,
because of the soldiers, like the one lying here.

I couldn’t help wondering how many lay alone,
on a cold Christmas Eve in a land far from home.

The very thought brought a tear to my eye,
I dropped to one knee and started to cry.

The soldier awakened and I heard a rough voice,
“Santa don’t cry, for this life is my choice”.

I fight for freedom, I don’t ask for more,
My life is my God, my country, my corps.”

The soldier rolled over and drifted to sleep,
I couldn’t control it, I continued to weep.

I kept watch for hours, so silent and still,
as we both shivered from the cold night’s chill.

I didn’t want to leave, on that cold, dark night,
this guardian of honor, so willing to fight.

Then the soldier rolled over, with a voice soft and pure,
whispered, “Carry on Santa…., It’s Christmas Day…., All is secure.

One look at my watch, and I knew he was right,
Merry Christmas my friend…. and to all a Good Night.

NAVY SEALS PUT ON TRIAL FOR PUNCHING A TERRIORIST!!!

Three Navy SEALs, Matthew McCabe, Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe & Petty Officer Julio Huertas all face criminal charges for allegedly punching Ahmed Hashim Abed while he was being detained. (Abed was the ringleader of the Iraqi terrorists that ambushed Blackwater employees, murdered them, dragged their bodies through the streets, burned them and then hung them from a bridge).

Full story at FoxNews.com
