No Joke: MSNBC’S Harris-Perry Says Voter ID Laws Discriminate Against “Transgender Americans”

September 29, 2012

Mind-numbing.
Via Newsbusters:

MSNBC doesn’t just oppose voter-ID reforms on behalf of blacks. In an interview with the DC gay newspaper The Washington Blade, weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry insisted “voter suppression efforts continue to impact transgender Americans.” It came with a lot of leftist lingo.
“They don’t look like what their photo IDs are,” she said. “So if they are self-presenting in front of an election official and they have an ID that says male or female and they’re sort of gender self-presenting in a non-conforming way, of course you end up with the possibility of shame or embarrassment or not being believed to be who you are.” They also don’t have birth certificates with names and gender markers that “are not informative of what their current life is.” Biological truth is an ideological lie:
“All of those things impact the ability of people to have the kind of state-issued ID that is allowable in a lot of these states around voting,” she said. “And so the idea that a person would be a perfectly eligible American citizen who has an opinion about voting and is kept out of it because of those sorts of issues — it goes to the heart of helping us understand that these efforts are really voter suppression efforts, not efforts to keep the election process above board.”

Rosenberg: Core CapEx Orders Signal Recession – Business Insider

September 29, 2012

Economists often note that durable goods orders is one of the more volatile economic indicators that we get every month.

However, there wasn’t much sugar-coating anyone could do to the Thursday’s report that showed durable goods orders plunged 13 percent in August.  Economists were looking for a 5.0 percent decline.

In his latest Breakfast with Dave note, David Rosenberg points to one sub-component of the durable goods report that sent a particularly scary signal.

The three-month moving average of core capex orders (i.e. nondefense capital goods excluding aircraft) was -4.1 percent in August. 

“History shows when the trend weakened to the level we see today, the economy was in recession 100% of the time,” wrote Rosenberg. “So stick that in you pipe and smoke it!”

This is also bad news for jobs.  According to Rosenberg’s data

, this measure has an 83 percent correlation with private employment.

Rosenberg also notes that durable goods orders has an 86% correlation to the stock market.

Huckabee Compares Benghazi Cover-Up to Watergate… Except 4 People Are Dead.

September 29, 2012
Perhaps the perfect punishment for Hillary would be to make her the permanent ambassador to Libya
(Other NEWS like USUAL) Mike Huckabee on America’s Newsroom:“We’ve been lied to. We’ve been flat out lied to. It’s as if airplanes crashing into the World Trade Center and someone said those were just accidents they veered off course. Everyone with two eyes and an IQ above plant life understands that what happened in Egypt and what happened in Libya was not some spontaneous reaction to some stupid 13 minute video on YouTube. It was a planned, coordinated, orchestrated attack led by terrorists. Terrorists, Bill… …And I think frankly if this issue gets the traction it deserves. Let’s go back. Richard Nixon was forced out of office because he lied. And because he covered some stuff up. I’m going to blunt and tell you this. Nobody died in Watergate. We have some people who are dead because of this. And there are some questions that should be answered and Americans ought to demand to get answers.” More… It’s so bad even Senate Democrats are demanding answers.Hmmmm……Second term Kerry takes Hillary’s place, But what about Huma Abedin?
 
…I’d say we were being hard on the Democrats, but I was completely Apolitical in 2004 and I got bullied by people who didn’t even realize I had voted for both Kerry and Gore. The memories of people picking on the Zionist Jew in my head. Losing my job… sorry to make this personal… but I hope they crucify these leftist feminists. Shit happens, but when you blame a political party for the behavior of the Arabs, then you have to expect the same scrutiny in reverse.

"Sanctions that Benefit" – Iran buys Turkish gold via UAE, economists say.

September 28, 2012

(other) “Sanctions that Benefit” – Iran buys Turkish gold via UAE, economists say.(HD).Turkey’s trade deficit fell 30 percent in August, reportedly on the back of strong gold sales to Iran even though the United Arab Emirates was the leading gold buyer from Turkey in the given period. The trade deficit fell to $5.86 billion, according to the Turkish Statistical Institute, compared with a $7.89 billion deficit in July and a forecast of $8.10 billion in a Reuters poll. “This data is a result of soaring gold exports, which broke a record with $2.3 billion in August,” Oyak Securities economist Mehmet Besimoğlu said on Sept. 28. “Gold exports were generally to Iran, made via the United Arab Emirates.” Turkish gold sales to Iran have soared as Iranians turn to the precious metal to protect savings and, potentially, to trade, as Western sanctions aimed at forcing the Islamic republic to curb its nuclear program tighten. Some trader firms also speculated that gold to the UAE might be for Iran in deed. As a whole, Turkey’s gold exports jumped more than fourfold to $11.2 billion in the first eight months of 2012. Overall exports to the UAE jumped eightfold to $2.23 billion, making it Turkey’s largest export destination in August. “The lower-than-expected August trade deficit was mainly due to the slowdown in domestic economic activity and net gold exports,” researchers from local lender TEB said. Exports rose 14.5 percent to $12.87 billion, as growing trade with markets in Africa and the Middle East eclipsed a slowdown in demand from Europe. Imports fell 4.8 percent to $18.74 billion.Hmmmm……Sanctions that benefit Obama’s BFF Turkey.Read the full story here.

boggles the mind. Iran and Turkey are at each other’s throats… but with a middleman they do business. They say Mohammad was a merchant. I wonder if he had a setup like this with the enemy.
