Look away! Look away!

The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither the Republican candidate nor the Democratic candidate had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things. The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election. It was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner. After much of back and forth discussion,it was decided that the contest would take place on a remote frozen lake innorthern Minnesota. There were to be no observers present, and both men wereto be sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. withtheir catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties.At the end of the first day, the republican candidate returned to thestarting line and he had 10 fish.Soon, the democratic candidate returned and had no fish. Well, everyoneassumed he was just having a bad day or something and hopefully, he wouldcatch up the next day. At the end of the 2nd day republican came in with 20fish and democrat candidate came in again with none.That evening, the democrats got together secretly and said, I think therepublican candidate is a low-life, cheatin’ son-of-a-gun. Tomorrow don’tbother fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.’The next night (after the republican candidate returns with 50 fish), thedemocrats got together for the report of how the republicans were cheating.The candidate said,”You are not going to believe this, he’s cutting holes in the ice.”

Israeli-Saudi Cyberwar Heats Up

Israeli-Saudi Cyberwar Heats Up

Last week the Insider Report disclosed that an Israeli teenager identified only as “OxOmer” launched a cyberwar counterattack against Saudi hackers who divulged tens of thousands of Israeli credit card numbers on the Internet.

Now the Saudi hackers have struck again, attacking the websites of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and El Al Israel Airlines.

And once again OxOmer has retaliated, bringing down the official websites of Saudi Arabia’s Monetary Agency and Abu Dhabi’s Securities Exchange on Tuesday.

In the new attacks on Israel, “what was hacked was our main website, which provides information,” Idit Yaaron, a Tel Aviv Stock Exchange spokeswoman, said on Monday. “The trading computer was not hacked and trading is going on as usual.”

El Al issued a statement saying it was taking measures to protect its website and warned there may be more disruptions.

OxOmer claims he is 17 years old and belongs to a four-member team of hackers who call themselves Israel Defenders. In the earlier counterattack, they published hundreds of Saudi credit card numbers. They told the Jerusalem Post they were also behind the new attacks on the Saudi and Abu Dhabi sites.

They said in a message on a forum that their actions came “because lame hackers from Saudi Arabia decided to launch an attack against Israeli sites.”

The cyberwar shows no signs of ending. The Saudi hacker who calls himself OxOmar told the Post he would continue to organize attacks on Israeli sites until the government apologized for what he called “genocide against Palestine.”

And Israeli hacker OxOmer warned: “If the lame attacks from Saudi Arabia will continue, we will move to the next level, which will disable these sites longer term.”

Also on Monday, a pro-Israeli hacker named Hannibal opened up another front in the cyberwar, publishing the details of 30,000 Facebook account holders from Arab countries, and threatening to publish information about bank accounts and credit cards belonging to Arab citizens if the attacks on Israeli sites continue.

Then on Wednesday, Arab hackers broke into the server of Israel’s Anti-Drug Authority and redirected visitors to a website showing images of Palestinian gunmen and the words “death to Israel” and “Gaza hackers were here.”

A group of Israeli hackers calling themselves the “IDF Team” retaliated on Thursday by disabling the websites of the Arab Bank of Palestine and the UAE’s central bank, the Post reported.

The Israeli hackers threatened to “disable stock market sites, government sites, and sites related to economy and even security.”

The cyberwar continues.

 Two Iraqi Men Arrested in KY for Attempting to Send Weapons and Money to al-Qaida

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Two Iraqi men living as refugees in Kentucky tried to send sniper rifles, Stinger missiles and money to al-Qaida operatives in their home country, and both boasted of using improvised explosives against American troops there before moving to the U.S., according to court documents unsealed Tuesday.

Thirty-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan and 23-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, both of Bowling Green, were arrested last week after an investigation that began months after they arrived in the U.S. in 2009. Neither is charged with plotting attacks within the United States, and authorities said their weapons and money didn’t make it to Iraq because of a tightly controlled undercover investigation.

Alwan is charged with conspiracy to kill a United States national, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to terrorists. Hammadi is charged with attempting to provide material support to terrorists and knowingly transferring, possession or exporting a device designed or intended to launch or guide a rocket or missile.

The FBI said in an affidavit that Alwan told an informant that he took part in insurgent attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq using both improvised explosive devices and a sniper rifle, saying “lunch and dinner would be an American.” Court documents say Hammadi also told an informant he planted improvised explosives in Iraq.

The men pleaded not guilty to the charges during a preliminary hearing Tuesday, and they’re in federal custody pending a detention hearing.

Fox News Poll: Voters Say Country in Worse Shape, Still Expect Obama Will Prevail in 2012

By Dana Blanton

Published May 19, 2011

Despite a majority believing the country is in worse shape than it was four years ago, American voters — by a wide margin — think President Barack Obama will be re-elected in 2012.

That’s a reversal from how voters felt six months ago, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.

Today, 57 percent of voters think President Obama will be re-elected. That’s about double the 29 percent who thought so in December. And the 36 percent of voters who don’t expect him to be re-elected is a major shift from the 64 percent who felt that way previously (December 14-15, 2010).

This change is likely due — at least in part — to the killing of Usama bin Laden and the lack of a clear Republican opponent.

Voters were also asked if President Obama deserves to be re-elected. By a 50-43 percent margin, voters think he does. Last month, in early April, voters were much less supportive — preferring someone else by a slim 4 percentage point margin (48-44 percent).

Overall, Obama’s job ratings have improved since the death of bin Laden. Currently 55 percent of voters approve and 41 percent disapprove. Before the raid, 47 percent approved and 47 percent disapproved (April 25-27, 2011).

Approval of the president jumped among Democrats and independents, as well as among GOP voters. Some 19 percent of Republicans approve of the president in the new poll, up from 11 percent (April 25-27). Obama received a similar bump among his party faithful, as 88 percent of Democrats approve, up from 80 percent previously.

Among independent voters, the president’s approval climbed five points to 43 percent. Still, nearly half of independents — 49 percent — disapprove.

Are you better off now than you were four years ago? Then-candidate Ronald Reagan posed this question to Americans in a 1980 debate with President Jimmy Carter, and it’s been standard fare in election campaigns since.

On a series of measures, the new poll finds that few voters think things are better now than they were four years ago.

Obama's American Vision

Majorities say the nation’s economy is in worse shape (59 percent) and that the job situation in their area is worse (57 percent).

Considering their personal finances, nearly half (45 percent) say their situation is the same now as it was four years ago. Among the remaining half, almost twice as many say they are worse off (36 percent) as say they are better off (19 percent).

By a wide 33-point spread, voters say the quality of life in the United States is worse today (48 worse – 15 better). Some 37 percent say the quality of life is unchanged.

More voters say the country is safer from terrorism today (33 percent) than say it is less safe (13 percent). A 53-percent majority says the country is equally as safe.

America is Next!

Half of voters (50 percent) say the country’s border security is about the same today as it was four years ago. The remaining views are split: 22 percent say it is better and 23 percent say border security is worse now.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 910 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from May 15 to May 17. For the total sample, it has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

White House Budget Staffers Seek to Join Union

Published May 17, 2011

Associated Press


May 2: Sidewalk in front of the White House in Washington is reopened.

WASHINGTON — Staffers at the White House budget office filed a petition Monday to join a labor union, seeking to gain more input over their working conditions.

About half of the career work force at the Office of Management and Budget signed the petition, said Peter Winch, deputy director of field services and education for the American Federation of Government Workers.

Winch said the move is not a signal that workers are unhappy at the agency, but a sign that they would like more of a voice in how the office is organized and more appreciation for the work they do.

“A lot of people are expected to come in on weekends and work late,” Winch said. “They don’t mind that culture, because they feel they are engaged in very important work, but they would like more recognition for the fact that they do make those sacrifices.”

The office, which helps the president prepare the federal budget, has been reorganized over the past year. Winch said some workers would have wanted their point of view considered when those changes were made.

“Even though they are a highly educated and professional group, they want a little more say so on the job like everybody else does,” Winch said.

OMB spokesman Kenneth Baer says the Obama administration strongly supports the rights of workers to unionize.

“It is up to the people working at any bargaining unit to decide if they want to join a union or not,” Baer said. “Whatever the decision of these employees may be, we are committed to working together to serve the president and the American people.”

Most federal employees are permitted to join unions, but are prohibited from going on strike. They also don’t bargain directly over wages and most benefits.

If the petition is approved by the Federal Labor Relations Authority, a vote could come later this summer. At least 30 percent of the employees at a work site must signal interest before the agency can authorize a vote.

The union is seeking to represent about 400 career employees at OMB. It would not represent any political appointees, supervisors or managers.

AFGE is the nation’s largest federal employee union, representing about 600,000 workers in the federal government and Washington, D.C.

Democrat: Non-Energy-Producing States Shouldn’t Complain About High Gas Prices

Thursday, May 12, 2011

( – A U.S. senator — a Democrat – is taking a strong stand against a bill introduced by a fellow Democrat that would end energy subsidies for big oil companies.

In a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday, Sen. Mary Landrieu, from the oil-producing state of Louisiana, said the bill introduced by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) targets an industry that supports 9.2 million jobs and contributes more than 7.7 percent to U.S. gross domestic product.

Ending energy subsidies for oil and gas companies, she said, will not reduce gas prices, but it will eliminate jobs.

Landrieu also took a swipe at states such as Michigan that produce no energy of their own: “There are a lot of states that don’t produce, don’t conserve, aren’t efficient, and all they want to do is yell about high gas prices,” she said.

“I’ll tell you, if we passed a law that said every state in America had to produce the energy it needed, we’d have an energy policy all right,” Landrieu said.

“Just like in the old days, if you wanted food, you produced it. Every state in America, all 50, if you consume energy, you need to produce something. You can produce it by wind, you could produce it by hydro, you could produce it by nuclear, you could stop driving all your automobiles and everybody walk. You could give everybody a bicycle — we don’t care.”

Landrieu noted that Louisiana, on the other hand, is doing a great job in providing for itself:

“We produce enough energy for everybody in our state, what we need — and we export it to everyone else in America that needs it. And what do we get? We get bills like this (the Menendez bill) that go after, directly, the big companies in our state, that work in our states, to somehow put them in a position to make them feel like they’re not really good companies, they’re not American companies, they don’t pay tax, they get all these subsidies. I’m going to read into the record what taxes they pay. It’s going to surprise you. And then on top of that, we get moratoriums. We get ‘permitoriums.’ We can’t even drill for the oil we have. We can’t even look for the oil we might have.”

Sen. Landrieu said her constituents ask her — since Louisiana produces so much energy for the country — why are Louisianans paying $4 a gallon for gasoline?

Oil producing states should be helped to produce more, she said: “But we get shut down by bureaucracy, moratoriums, permitoriums, rules, regulations, EPA, refuges…”

Landrieu said U.S. oil and natural gas companies pay more than $86 million to the federal government in both income taxes and production fees every day. In addition, she said, since 2000, the oil and gas industry has invested almost $1.7 trillion in U.S. capital projects to advance all forms of energy, including alternatives, while reducing the industry’s environmental footprint.

As for energy subsidies — Landrieu said it might surprise American taxpayers to know that of the $16.6 billion spent on U.S. energy subsidies over the course of one year, oil and gas subsidies account for less than 13 percent of the total, while renewable fuels, such as refined coal, nuclear, solar and hydro, account for more than 85 percent.

“You would think, because of this (Menendez) bill, that the big oil and gas companies are getting all the subsidies, making all the profits, paying no taxes, and the rest are suffering. Nothing could be further from the truth,” Landrieu said.
