A hot microphone caught a conversation between a male and female Senator.
"Because -- because, it's all rigged. I mean, the whole conversation is rigged. The fact that we don't get to discussion before the break about what we're going to do in the lame duck is just rigged. This stuff's rigged," the Senator said.
UPDATE (1:32 ET): Washington Examiner reports the speaker was Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO).

A hot microphone caught a conversation between a male and female Senator.
As Facebook has announced its new messaging system and its deployment in the coming months, online scammers have been trying to use that announcement against unsuspecting Facebook users that may have heard about it and believe that changes will be made in the way that the social network contacts and notifies its users.
McAfee warns about the latest of these scams - a fake "Your friend commented on your photo" e-mail.
[T]he e-mail is coming from a Gmail address - a fact that should tell the recipients that the e-mail is not legitimate. And, if they run their mouse over the embedded link, they will also notice that the real link has nothing to do with Facebook.
A click on it will redirect the user to a malicious page serving malware. [Date: 29 November 2010; Source: http://www.net- security.org/malware_news.php?id=1549]
Former FBI informant in the Weather Underground, Larry Grathwohl, has testified under oath before grand juries as well as before a Senate subcommittee that Ayers had told him that Bernardine Dohrn planted that bomb. It was filled with heavy metal staples. It was put on the ledge of the Park Police Station in San Francisco and exploded. One of the staples went through Sgt. McDonnell's eye into his brain. He suffered in the hospital for two days before dying.
And what irritates Ayers and Dohrn is that we have continued to press for authorities to investigate ... and pursue charges in the case.
It ran on the 12 Nov 2010 and was scheduled for rebroadcast on the 19 Nov 2010. It’s vanished from the TruTV website. A quick look on Alex’s websites couldn’t find any references to it either!
Also didn’t air the scheduled re-run but ran an episode of Most Daring on 11/19/2010 instead!

WWII-style rationing called for in rich countries to combat global warming, even though it’s a certified ‘fraud’!
Global warming is now such a serious threat to mankind that climate change experts are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring down carbon emissions.
“I truly feel that it is morally and ethically wrong to do it,” the agent noted. “This does not make flying safer. It’s just taking away American citizens rights.”
“I myself would be just as confident flying before these new procedures took place as I would be flying right now.”
It’s America’s seniors that are most often the targets of a pat-down, says this local TSA officer.
“These are your mother, your father, your grandparents. They’re the ones who have to put up with this every time they fly.”

Russia is losing the Chinese arms market. An official spokesman for Russia's defense export giant Rosoboronexport, Sergey Kornev, stated at Airshow China 2010 that the amount of orders between Russia and China had dropped because the Chinese market had been saturated with arms. It particularly goes about the aviation technology. Russia, the official stated, has delivered 280 Su fighters to China during the recent years.
The USA has been showing more concerns about China's growing military threat against such a background. Experts of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission stated in their report that the USA had lost the military predominance in the region. It was also said that China was already capable of destroying five of six US army bases in the Pacific Ocean
Syphilis, lice, gonorrhea, ringworm, Chlamydia, staph, strep, noro and papilloma viruses all are part of the possible fringe benefits when airline passengers next go through a full hands-on pat-down by agents of the federal government's TSA
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and his son and successor Jong-un visited the artillery base from where shells were fired at a South Korean island just hours before the attack, South Korean media reported on Thursday.
North Korea's attack on Yeonpyeong Island that killed two South Korean marines and two civilians on Tuesday was probably ordered by Kim Jong-il himself, the Joongang Daily quoted a well-informed government source as saying.

You didn’t know republicans were part of it too? Who gave you the patriot act, who gave you TARP…
Show me your papers…
The terrorist are arab men in their twenties, not your grandma, not your little brother. Why don’t we target the threat? It could be money, there is a lot of it in these machines, but it’s getting too massive just for that.
Those who see a NWO conspiracy, like me, see a government providing a method for identifying and rounding up citizens who opt out of the NWO.
At the very least it’s a continuing pounding of the citizens with never ending Cloward-Pivens strategy.

Americans who voted for Obama but never questioned his allegiance wised up and voted out his cronies November 2nd. The Republicans stormed into the House of Representatives and kicked out "Mad Woman Pelosi" as Speaker of the House. The Republicans gained more seats in the Senate and also more Republican Governors won across the country. Democrats barely held on to the Senate majority but the Republican House victory means Obama's socialist party train has stopped.
Even Obama's old Senate seat in Illinois was lost to Republican Mark Kirk. That's like Lucifer being replaced by St Michael in Hell and leading the devils to good. It just does not happen but it did. The same state that voted for Obama and the Democrats voted for a Republican. Imagine what Obama is saying now, "Et tu, Brute?"
The Republicans are only short by 5 in the Senate as they gained 6 more seats and 56 more seats in the House while gaining the majority in Governors by adding 10 more. All in all a great day considering the Democrats still spent millions of dollars more in their campaigns.
Minorities won big for the Republicans. So much for the Democratic lie that Republicans are racists. Read the Associated Press story here.
On November 4th, 2008 millions of Americans were shocked that a man of Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s limited experience, extreme liberal positions and radical political alliances could be elected President of the United States. For many of these Americans, the explanation was rather simple… the news media, completely enamored with Obama, simply refused to do their job.
This is how Obama got elected. You will hear from Obama supporters that the media was actually in favor of John McCain and Sarah Palin, rather than Hussein himself. Anyone with half a brain knows otherwise.
Below is a video made John Ziegler on Election day of twelve Obama voters were interviewed extensively right after they voted to learn how the news media impacted their knowledge of what occurred during the campaign.
These voters were chosen for their apparent intelligence/verbal abilities and willingness to express their opinions to a large audience. The rather shocking video below seeks to provide some insight into which information broke through the news media clutter and which did not. THIS is how Obama got elected:
Last Tuesday, November 16 , Soros told financiers of the Democratic party that Obama must go. The liberal "Huffington Post" quoted Soros as saying:
"...if this president can't do what we need, it is time to start looking somewhere else."

even worse than we thought.
Can a private citizen be subjected to a smear campaign by government officials for merely questioning a politician? That’s the issue at the heart of the lawsuit on behalf of Joe Wurzelbacher, known to most as “Joe the Plumber.”
Well, just days after Mr. Wurzelbacher asked his question the three highest ranking employees of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services at the time – who all just happened to be supporters of Obama – launched a dirt-digging expedition to try to smear “Joe the Plumber.”
They instructed staff to access confidential office databases to retrieve sensitive information about Mr. Wurzelbacher, in an effort, it seems, to punish him for daring to question candidate Obama.
An Ohio Office of Inspector General report would later conclude that these investigations by the three government officials had “no legitimate agency function or purpose” and constituted a “wrongful act.”
The number of banks on the agency's "problem list" grew from 829 to 860, which is the highest number since March of 1993 when there were 928 institutions on the list.
As of last Friday, 149 institutions had failed so far in 2010.

The TSA isn’t the only one with grabby hands.
I’ve been reporting on the stealth Obama land and ocean grabs for the past several months now — and there is another new, under-the-radar-screen development that deserves your attention.
Quick review: In August, I told you about the “Great Outdoors Initiative” to lock up more open spaces through executive order. This came on top on top of a separate, property-usurping initiative exposed by GOP Rep. Robert Bishop and Sen. Jim DeMint earlier this spring. According to an internal, 21-page Obama administration memo, 17 energy-rich areas in 11 states have been targeted as potential federal “monuments.” The Obama War on the West is a War on Jobs that extends from land to sea based on politicized junk science by executive fiat and czar evasion.
Non-shocker of the day: Green jobs boondoogle a bust
Back in April 2009, we took note of how the green jobs boondoggle turned out in Spain. In two words: Epic fail.
No matter. The Obama White House shoveled more and more enviro-slush fund money into the green jobs/union jobs black hole.
It’s time to produce the ‘birth certificates’!

There has been a lot of controversy over exactly what the helicopter cameraman photographed. It was not contrails from an airliner. It was not a contrail from a single-engined or centerline thrust dual-engine aircraft. Here’s why.

Is it time for All Arabs and Practicing Muslims to be Registered with the TSA? Is this cruel? No, it is not, but the left wingers that want to turn the USA into a police state will say it is. The LEFT do not want to have any one group singled out, because they want all citizens to be locked down. This is how these fascists think.
ATHENS, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Former U.S. vice-president Al Gore said support for corn-based ethanol in the United States was "not a good policy", weeks before tax credits are up for renewal.
U.S. blending tax breaks for ethanol make it profitable for refiners to use the fuel even when it is more expensive than gasoline. The credits are up for renewal on Dec. 31.
"One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president."
U.S. ethanol is made by extracting sugar from corn, an energy-intensive process. The U.S. ethanol industry will consume about 41 percent of the U.S. corn crop this year, or 15 percent of the global corn crop, according to Goldman Sachs analysts.
A food-versus-fuel debate erupted in 2008, in the wake of record food prices, where the biofuel industry was criticised for helping stoke food prices.
Why the flood of news stories and accompanying photos of TSA pat-down outrages? Why is the media so hot on this? Follow the money…Soros, Chertoff…who else?

19 Senators voted to censor the Internet including 7 Republicans
You’d expect progressive liberal Democrats to vote for censorship of the Internet, but you can’t only blame them anymore. Lame, RINO progressive Republicans also were a part of the 19 Senators to vote to censor the Internet. According to Tech Dirt, the Republicans who voted for this measure include:
Jeff Sessions — Alabama
Orrin G. Hatch — Utah
Jon Kyl — Arizona
Chuck Grassley — Iowa
Lindsey Graham — South Carolina
John Cornyn — Texas
Tom Coburn — Oklahoma
That’s seven of the 19 being Republicans voting for this violation of the first amendment. The other twelve were from progressive liberal Marxist Democrats that you would expect to vote for something like this.
* Patrick J. Leahy — Vermont
* Herb Kohl — Wisconsin
* Dianne Feinstein — California
* Russ Feingold — Wisconsin
* Arlen Specter — Pennsylvania
* Chuck Schumer — New York
* Dick Durbin — Illinois
* Benjamin L. Cardin — Maryland
* Sheldon Whitehouse — Rhode Island
* Amy Klobuchar — Minnesota
* Al Franken — Minnesota
* Chris Coons — Delaware
It seems blatantly obvious to me that neither party learned their lesson from the November 2nd elections. Grassley unfortunately just won re-election. The rest of these phony Republicans need to be primaried the next time they are up for re-election.

Western defense officials and experts were surprised to see more than 25 different Chinese models of the unmanned aircraft, known as UAVs, on display at this week's Zhuhai air show in this southern Chinese city. It was a record number for a country that unveiled its first concept UAVs at the same air show only four years ago, and put a handful on display at the last one in 2008.
The apparent progress in UAVs is a stark sign of China's ambition to upgrade its massive military as its global political and economic clout grows.

All of you who live in states where senators voted in favor of this need to call your U.S. Senate offices today — right now — and urge them to oppose this nefarious bill.
Call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be directly connected to your Senator’s office: 202-224-3121.

State GOP leaders grab issue of Obama eligibility
The GOP members of Congress who booted Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi from the speaker's seat when they took the majority in the U.S. House this month may be the least of President Barack Obama's concerns as the 2012 presidential campaign assembles.
That's because in Pennsylvania, and in at least a couple of other states, there are Republican-controlled Houses, Senates and governors' offices where being developed right now are plans to use state law to demand proof of constitutional eligibility from presidential candidates before they would be allowed on the state ballot.

Personally I’ve got nothing against riding around in the ‘Beast’ except for the hypocrisy of it! It’s a fraud to suggest that cars cause global warming. I’m for better fuel mileage and decreased pollution emissions but not at the expense of comfort and convenience! There has to be a balance!!!
Some heads of state are zipping around Lisbon, host city of the NATO summit, in no-emission electric vehicles. Security dictates that Obama travel in the no-efficiency 'Beast,' a vehicle that fascinates the local press.
A car from the motorcade of U.S. President Barack Obama moves past Indian Parliament building in New Delhi November 8.
While the Portuguese prime minister and the Portuguese president of the European Union’s executive commission are tooling around the NATO summit here in no-emission electric vehicles, Mr. Obama is fouling the Lisbon skies with his no-efficiency "Beast," the eight-ton, diesel-fueled behemoth of a limousine the president carts around the world with him.
Obama is expected to discuss climate change and a common US-Europe approach to it when he takes part in a US-European Union (EU) summit after the NATO meeting on Saturday. But in the meantime, the Portuguese capital is being treated to a jarring dichotomy: the polluting "leader of the free world," on one hand, lumbering across town in the Beast with a phalanx of black Secret Service vehicles and Portuguese police motorcycles in tow; and the Europeans zipping around in smart electric vehicles, on the other.
Oh, and to drive the point home, journalists attending the summit are being ferried to events in electric buses, as well.
Tips for Handling Telemarketers
(1)The three little words are: 'Hold On, Please...'
Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt.
Then when you eventually hear the phone company's 'beep-beep-beep' tone, you know it's time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task.
These three little words will help eliminate telephone soliciting..
(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end?
This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone.
This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a 'real' sales person to call back and get someone at home. What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times as quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialed the call, and it kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to have your name in their system any longer!!!
When you get 'ads' enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these 'ads' with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.
When you get those 'pre-approved' letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope.
Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 44 cents postage, 'IF' and when they receive them back.
It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was around 50 cents before the last increase and it is according to the weight. In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes.
One of Andy Rooney 's (60 minutes) ideas.
Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express.
Send a pizza coupon to Citibank.
If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their blank application back! If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them. You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them 44 cents.
The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them. Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they're paying for it...Twice!
Let's help keep our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that's why they need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!
If enough people follow these tips, it will work ----
I have been doing this for years, and I get very little junk mail anymore.
THIS JUST MIGHT BE ONE E-MAIL THAT YOU WILL WANT TO FORWARD TO YOUR
1) Any time you see an email that says "forward this on to '10' (or however many) of your friends", "sign this petition", or "you'll get bad luck" or "you'll get good luck" or "you'll see something funny on your screen after you send it" or whatever --- it almost always has an email tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and emails of those folks you forward to.
The host sender is getting a copy each time it gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of 'active' email addresses to use in SPAM emails or sell to other spammers. Even when you get emails that demand you send the email on if you're not ashamed of God/Jesus --- that is email tracking, and they are playing on our conscience. These people don't care how they get your email addresses - just as long as they get them. Also, emails that talk about a missing child or a child with an incurable disease "how would you feel if that was your child" --- email tracking. Ignore them and don't participate!
2) Almost all emails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others are similar to that mass letter years ago that asked people to send business cards to the little kid in Florida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of Records for the most cards. All it was, and all any of this type of email is, is a way to get names and 'cookie' tracking information for telemarketers and spammers -- to validate active email accounts for their own profitable purposes.
You can do your Friends and Family members a GREAT favor by sending this information to them. You will be providing a service to your friends. And you will be rewarded by not getting thousands of spam emails in the future! Do yourself a favor and STOP adding your name(s) to those types of listing regardless how inviting they might sound! Or make you feel guilty if you don't! It's all about getting email addresses and nothing more. You may think you are supporting a GREAT cause, but you are NOT! Instead, you will be getting tons of junk mail later and very possibly a virus attached!
Plus, we are helping the spammers get rich! Let's not make it easy for them! ALSO: Email petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress or any other organization - i.e. social security, etc. To be acceptable, petitions must have a "signed signature” and full address of the person signing the petition, so this is a waste of time and you are just helping the email trackers.

They are treating the success of the initial public offering of the new GM, which will likely happen this Thursday, as proof positive that that the auto industry rescue and much of the rest of Obama's economic policies must be good for the country.
But what exactly is so remarkable about a company coming back to life after a $65 billion taxpayer bailout, additional billions in tax breaks not available to other companies, and even an amazing "sovereign immunity" exemption for this IPO from anti-fraud securities laws and lawsuits?
With this massive infusion of government aid and favors, even a company selling ketchup Popsicles to women wearing white gloves would likely show a profitable quarter! (Hat tip for the Popsicle analogy to David Spade in Tommy Boy -- one of my favorite movies about business.)

- Incident began when Bibi dipped her cup into a bucket of drinking water used by co-workers
- The co-workers complained the water had been contaminated by a non-Muslim
- Bibi is a Christian
- Pakistan has never executed someone convicted of blasphemy
Itan Wali, Pakistan (CNN) -- In this village in Pakistan's Punjab province a tearful 12-year-old girl ponders if the Pakistani government will soon hang her mother.
"Whenever I see her picture I cry," Isham Masih told CNN. "I want my mother back. That's what I'm praying for."
This month a Pakistani court sentenced Isham's mother, 45-year-old Asia Bibi, to death, not because she killed, injured or stole, but simply because she said something.
Prosecutors say Bibi, who is a Christian, broke Pakistan's strict blasphemy law by insulting Islam and the prophet Muhammad, a crime punishable by death or life imprisonment according to Pakistan's penal code.
The alleged incident happened in June 2009 when Bibi, a field worker, was picking fruit in a village two hours west of Lahore. Prosecutors say when Bibi dipped her cup into a bucket of drinking water during a lunch break, her co-workers complained the water had been contaminated by a non-Muslim.
Court records show the women got into a heated argument.
Mafia Satar said she was there and heard Bibi's insults.
"She said your Muhammad had worms in his mouth before he died," Satar told CNN, a crude way of saying Muhammad was no prophet.
The town cleric, Qari Muhammad Salim, reported the incident to police who arrested Bibi. After nearly 15 months in prison came her conviction and the death sentence.
(CNN) -- A Chinese woman has been sentenced to a year in a labor camp for retweeting a Twitter post that mocked Chinese protesters who smashed Japanese products during a recent demonstration, her fiance said Thursday.
Roger Ailes slams Jon Stewart as a conservative-basher, explains why he rode to Juan Williams’ rescue—and sees NPR as taxpayer-funded propaganda. Part II of Howard Kurtz’s interview.
When Jon Stewart was appearing on the O’Reilly Factor a few weeks back, he stopped by Roger Ailes’ office for an hour-long chat about politics.
“He’s obviously really, really smart,” the Fox News chairman says. “He openly admits he’s sort of an atheist and a socialist. He once told me he would’ve voted for Norman Thomas.”
Fox News CEO Roger Ailes poses for a portrait in New York on Sep. 29, 2006. (Photo: Jim Cooper / AP Photo) Ailes was appraising the Daily Show star in a friendly, good-natured tone. But that tone changed when the conversation turned to Stewart’s continuous carping about the excesses of cable news:
“He hates conservative views. He hates conservative thoughts. He hates conservative verbiage. He hates conservatives.”
There was more.
“He’s crazy. If it wasn’t polarized, he couldn’t make a living. He makes a living by attacking conservatives and stirring up a liberal base against it.”
I tried to interrupt.
“He loves polarization. He depends on it. If liberals and conservatives are all getting along, how good would that show be? It’d be a bomb.”
But Stewart played clips of MSNBC as well as Fox at his Washington rally last month, casting them as part of the “24-hour politico, pundit, perpetual panic conflictinator.” He says his concern is the not the ideology of cable channels but the tone of the discourse.
“Oh, horseshit,” Ailes shot back. “Look what he does to Sarah Palin.” If Stewart wants to go after cable hosts for the entertainment value, fine, “but don’t give me a social speech on the steps of the Washington Monument. Don’t lapse into non-comedy.”
“They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don’t want any other point of view. They don’t even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda.
They are basically Air America with government funding to keep them alive.”
Here's the deal, they are doing this on purpose to create an outrage. Then they can put their "solution" in place which is likely to be far worse.
Something like retina scans or ID impant Chips. This is not about terrorism. It is about the NWO wanting to dog collar the people and keep them under control.

Scanners and other invasive security measures are being advocated in order to protect the civil liberties of a tiny minority of Islamists at the expense of the overwhelming majority of law-abiding Americans.
The amount of money contained in contracts to outfit all the airport terminals. After all, isn’t it alarming that the government is allocating millions upon millions of taxpayer funds to outfit the x-ray machines?
However, all of that doesn’t address the actual scam being conducted. The thing that nobody is addressing is that all of this security is being contained in America, not abroad.
The big question is this: Why are we not scanning at all terminals internationally that would be entering into US airspace? After all, if they were so concerned for the safety of Americans, would they not focus on the inbound flights from other countries that aid and house terrorists?
But it is highly likely that the administration will not answer that question; as they look to prosper from the contracts that were issued, the money to be made from investing heavily in those companies being chosen to fulfill the contracts, and more importantly the lobbyist money to be gained.

- UPDATE: VeriChip Buys Steel Vault, Creating Micro-Implant Health Record/Credit Score Empire
Novartis and Proteus Biomedical are not the only companies hoping monitor patients’ pill-popping habits with microchips. VeriChip of Delray Beach, Fl., has an even bolder idea: an implanted chip that links to an online database containing all your medical records, credit history and your social security ID.
