Gay Man Being Deported Because Marriage Not Recognized

Cry me a River. First, we have to many “immigrants”, legal and illegal coming to this country. Here’s an idea: fix your own country, and stay there. We have enough problems in this country that we are dealing with.
From myfoxny.com:

Henry Velandia and Josh Vandiver married in Montville, Connecticut on August 29, 2010. Henry Velandia is in deportation proceedings because the Defense of Marriage Act prevents Josh Vandiver from sponsoring him for residency.

How much money are these proceedings costing tax payers?

Outer Space Treaty of 1967

Did you know that this treaty existed? I know I didn’t until I was researching an article for our radio show: The Uncooperative Radio Show. The article was about the UN and the fact that they had appointed an ambassador to handle space aliens when they come to earth. I should get that article up also, huh?
After all, Halloween is around the corner. Read the whole thing people, its very important.

Treaty on principles governing the activities of states in the exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies.
Opened for signature at Moscow, London, and Washington on 27 January, 1967
THE STATES PARTIES. TO THIS TREATY,
INSPIRED by the great prospects opening up before mankind as a result of man’s entry into outer space,
RECOGNIZING the common interest of all mankind in the progress of the exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes,
BELIEVING that the exploration and use of outer space should be carried on for the benefit of all peoples irrespective of the degree of their economic or scientific development,
DESIRING to contribute to broad international co-operation in the scientific as well as the legal aspects of the exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes,
BELIEVING that such co-operation will contribute to the development of mutual understanding and to the strengthening of friendly relations between States and peoples,
RECALLING resolution 1962 (XVIII), entitled “Declaration of Legal Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space”, which was adopted unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly on 13 December 1963,
RECALLING resolution 1884 (XVIII), calling upon States to refrain from placing in orbit around the earth any objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction or from installing such weapons on celestial bodies, which was adopted unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly on 17 October 1963,
TAKING account of United Nations General Assembly resolution 110 (II) of 3 November 1947, which condemned propaganda designed or likely to provoke or encourage any threat to the peace, breach of the peace or act of aggression, and considering that the aforementioned resolution is applicable to outer space,
CONVINCED that a Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, will further the Purposes and Principles ofthe Charter of the United Nations

When you read the entire treaty, which only has sixteen amdendments, you will notice that China did not sign on to it. Which begs the question: does that mean that China can do anything is wants in space?

Survivor Details Massacre of 72 Migrants by Drug Cartel in Mexico

From the AP:

MEXICO CITY — A wounded migrant stumbled into a military checkpoint and led marines to a gruesome scene, what may be the biggest massacre so far in Mexico’s bloody drug war: a room strewn with the bodies of 72 fellow travelers, some piled on top of each other, just 100 miles from their goal, the U.S. border.

The 58 men and 14 women were killed, the migrant told investigators Wednesday, by the Zetas cartel, a group of former Mexican army special forces known to extort migrants who pass through its territory.

If you read the entire article your come away with more questions than answers. Like what Marines? Does Mexico even have Marines? And where were they migrating too? Oh, and by the way, our government trained the Zeta’s. Oh what a wonderful world we live in.

Haiti Donations

Former Presidents Bush and Clinton were on Fox News a couple of days ago and stated that they were concerned about “false charities”, ripping people off. So they asked that if anyone wanted to give money to Haiti, they should go to their site, which is

Leftist Leaders Say U.S. Is Using Relief Mission As Pretext to Occupy Haiti

From CNSNews:

The United States is using the humanitarian crisis in Haiti as an excuse to occupy the earthquake-hit island nation, two of Washington’s most vocal leftist critics in Latin America implied at the weekend.

To support the massive aid operation following last Tuesday’s devastating quake, the U.S. was set to have up to 10,000 troops on the ground or in the waters off Haiti by early this week

But the presence of 82nd Airborne Division troops at Port-au-Prince airport, Air Force C-17s ferrying in equipment, water and supplies and the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson equipped with 19 helicopters off Haiti, along with the news that more troops and assets including a hospital ship are on their way, raised suspicions in some quarters.

“What is happening in Haiti seriously concerns me as U.S. troops have already taken control of the airport,” Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said late Friday.

You had to know this was coming down the pipe. Ortega’s like a dictator right? He was elected how many times? And then, you of course, had to know the man that loves to hate the United States of America, had to weigh in.

On Sunday Chavez weighed in, using his weekly television and radio show to question U.S. motives in Haiti, and accusing it of “occupying Haiti undercover.”

“[President] Obama, stop sending troops to Haiti, send doctors,” the official Venezuelan ABN news agency quoted him as saying. “Haiti does not need troops.”

These people do know, we are spending more taxpayer dollars to send our troops over to that hell hole. As well as, the American people donating more money to all the charities that are helping the people of Haiti. Besides, Baracus Obamanous doesn’t have the guts to take over anything. Oh wait, just our freedom.

Defense Officials: Russian Subs Patrolling off East Coast of United States

I used to get all excited and worried about the revelations “we the people are pieced- mealed”, on a daily basis. But, I have decided to “wonder why” instead. Why, is this coming out now? Why are we hearing about this now? Why do we need to pay attention? Any answers?

From Fox News:

WASHINGTON — Two nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines have been patrolling in international waters off the East Coast for several days, in activity reminiscent of the Cold War, defense officials said Tuesday.

U.S. Northern Command would not comment on the Russian submarines’ movement. But in a prepared statement, Northern Command spokesman Michael Kucharek acknowledged the patrols and said the U.S. has been monitoring the two submarines.

Two senior U.S. officials, however, said the submarines had been patrolling several hundred miles off the coast and so far had done nothing to provoke U.S. military concerns. The officials provided details on condition of anonymity in order to discuss intelligence reports.

Notice there is not much more to the story; if you read the rest of the article. Again, why is that?

Obama, Chavez Shake Hands at Summit of the Americas

It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood, a wonderful day in the neighborhood, a wonderful day in the neighborhood. Would you be my neighbor?

From Fox News:

Photos released by the Venezuelan government show Obama clasping Chavez’s hand and smiling broadly, and Venezuela quoted Chavez as saying, “I’d like to be your friend,” while noting that he shook President Bush’s hand eight years ago with the same hand. Obama reportedly expressed thanks.

A senior White House official said the encounter came before the summit’s opening ceremonies during a meeting with the heads of state. Obama talked to many of the 25 or so leaders who were there at the time. At one point, he walked across the room and introduced himself to Chavez.

If you go to the link and read the rest of the article you’ll see a picture of them shaking hands like “brothers in the hood” How nice.

Chavez vows to turn a defeat into victory

I knew there was going to be more to this from Chavez…

From The Washington Times:

Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez vowed yesterday to keep fighting for a package of radical constitutional amendments despite a stunning referendum defeat that sent his opponents into the streets in celebration.

“I don’t withdraw a single comma from this proposal,” Mr. Chavez said of his amendments, which would curtail private-property rights and remove limits on the number of terms he could serve as president.

“I keep making this proposal to the Venezuelan people. This proposal is alive, not dead. It couldn’t be done for now, but I maintain it,” Mr. Chavez told officials, military officers and reporters who gathered at the presidential Miraflores Palace as the outcome of the voting became clear. [snip…]

Gen. Raul Baduel, a former defense minister who resigned from Mr. Chavez’s government to lead a campaign against the constitutional changes, warned that the president could still seek to alter the country’s legal system by “other means.”

Gen. Baduel said Mr. Chavez could use “enabling” clauses in the current constitution to legislate by decree. He suggested that a new constitutional assembly should be elected to put checks on the presidency, which Mr. Chavez has progressively strengthened since he came to office in 1999.[snip…]

Some election monitors, without offering any proof, said Mr. Chavez lost by a much wider margin, of almost 10 percentage points.

“It’s obvious that they tried something, but couldn’t do it because the difference between the ‘no’ and ‘yes’ vote was too great.” said Rodolfo Monsalvo, a Caracas taxi driver cruising through opposition street parties, where printed copies of Mr. Chavez’s proposed amendments were burned.

“We’ve been marching in protest for nine years and finally we’ve won” said Corina Perez, a 25-year-old schoolteacher. “Every time they managed to cheat us, but couldn’t do it this time.”

Venezuelans Deny Chávez Additional Authority

Haha! Good for the Venzuelans!

From WaPo:

Hours after the final ballots were cast, the National Electoral Council announced at 1:15 a.m. local time Monday that voters, by a margin of 51 to 49 percent, had rejected 69 reforms to the 1999 constitution. The modifications would have permitted the president to stand for reelection indefinitely, appoint governors to provinces he would create and control Venezuela’s sizable foreign reserves.[snip…]

Particularly damaging to the government was the defection of several longtime allies, including the former defense minister, Raúl Baduel, and the head of an influential, pro-Chávez party, Ismael García. Pollsters said that gave the “No” vote undeniable momentum late last month.

“People who have been with Chávez do not support the reform,” said Elixio Fusil, who lives in a pro-Chávez district in western Caracas and voted against the reforms. “He wants a blank check, and that’s impossible. We’re not stupid like he thinks. It’s that simple. There are conscious, thinking people here, too.”

The referendum capped a whirlwind year for Chávez, who won a second six-year term with 63 percent of the vote last December and promptly announced he would radicalize what he calls his Bolivarian revolution. He nationalized electric and telephone utilities, wrested the huge oil sector from ExxonMobil and other corporations, cancelled the concession for RCTV, a stridently anti-government station, and oversaw an expanding state presence in the economy.

I wonder what Chavez will do now?

Chavez to U.S. officials: ‘Go to hell’

Chavez is really into the hell thing, huh?

From the AP:

President Hugo Chavez told U.S. officials to “Go to hell, gringos!” and called Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice “missy” on his weekly radio and TV show Sunday, lashing out at Washington for what he called unacceptable meddling in Venezuelan affairs.

The tirade came after Washington raised concerns about a measure to grant the fiery leftist leader broad lawmaking powers. The National Assembly, which is controlled by the president’s political allies, is expected to give final approval this week to what it calls the “enabling law,” which would give Chavez the authority to pass a series of laws by decree during an 18-month period.

On Friday, U.S. State Department deputy spokesman Tom Casey said Chavez’s plans under the law “have caused us some concern.”

Chavez rejected Casey’s statement in his broadcast, saying: “Go to hell, gringos! Go home!”

Into Hell and a racist, isn’t that interesting?

Chavez, who was re-elected by a wide margin last month, has said he will enact sweeping reforms to remake Venezuela into a socialist state. Among his plans are nationalizing the main telecommunications company, CANTV, and the electricity and natural gas sectors.

He said Sunday his government will not pay the market value for CANTV, but rather will take into account debts to workers, pensions and other obligations including a “technological debt” to the state. CANTV, partially owned by U.S.-based Verizon Communications Inc., was privatized in 1991.

Well, that will teach our companies to do business in South America.

Criticizing excessive consumption and self-indulgence, Chavez also announced plans in his broadcast to raise domestic gasoline prices and approve a new tax on luxury goods such as private yachts, second homes and extravagant automobiles.

He did not give details on the gas price hike, which he said would not affect bus drivers who provide public transportation, or the luxury tax. He said revenue from the new measures would be put toward government social programs.

Venezuela is one of the world’s leading petroleum exporters and gasoline now costs as little as 12 cents a gallon due to government subsidies.

He is going to raise taxes to pay for social programs, Gee, he sounds like a U.S. democrat!

I keep telling you he is turning his country into a totalitarian socialist government. Well, sit back and watch it happen!
