Fiat Says Jeep Output May Return to China as Demand Rises

Fiat SpA (F), majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country, according to the head of both automakers’ operations in the region.
Fiat is in “very detailed conversations” with its Chinese partner, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. (2238), about making Jeeps in the world’s largest auto market, said Mike Manley, chief operating officer of Fiat and Chrysler in Asia. Chrysler hasn’t built Jeeps there since before Fiat took control in 2009.
Now earlier, many PROGRESSIVE outlets claimed this story was false. They claimed this story was put forth as a misinterpretation by some ‘blogs’
It’s Bloomberg.
Not some blog.
Given labor costs, given Obama’s STATED desire to raise taxes on corporations, what do YOU dear reader imagine the state of consideration of this move, when a huge manufacturer is in “very detailed conversations”.
We all have brains.
But hey, the good news is that as long as things suck and demand sucks, it doesn’t pay to take low volume output to China

BENGHAZI'S SMOKING GUN: OBAMA REPLACES AFRICOM'S COMMANDER

From the Astute Bloggers:

VIA GLENN REYNOLDS:

AS THE RETIRED MILITARY MAN WHO CALLED INTO RUSH EARLIER IN THE WEEK RELATED, AFRICOM HAS RESPONSIBILITY FOR LIBYA - AND, (AS ALL REGIONAL COMMANDS HAVE), HAD A RAPID RESPONSE FORCE READY TO INSERT INTO BENGHAZI.

NOW COMES NEWS THAT ON THE 18TH OF OCTOBER, OBAMA OFFICIALLY RELIEVED THE AFRICOM COMMANDER WHO WAS IN COMMAND ON 9/11/12 - GENERAL HAM, AND REPLACED HIM WITH GENERAL RODRIGUEZ.

THE RUMOR IS THAT WHEN GENERAL HAM RECEIVED THE ORDER FROM WASHINGTON TO STAND DOWN, HE DISOBEYED THE ORDER AND COMMANDED HIS FORCE TO TAKE ACTION TO SAVE THE AMBASSADOR.

AND THEN HIS SECOND IN COMMAND COUNTERMANDED HAM'S ORDER, OBEYED WASHINGTON AND MADE THE FORCE STAND DOWN.

IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN IT LEADS DIRECTLY TO PANETTA AND DEMPSEY AND THE WHITE HOUSE.

The Incredible Shrinking President

From Mark Steyn:
We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video,” said Hillary Clinton. No, not the person who made the video saying that voting for Barack Obama is like losing your virginity to a really cool guy. I’ll get to that in a moment. But Secretary Clinton was talking about the fellow who made the supposedly Islamophobic video that supposedly set off the sacking of the Benghazi consulate. And, indeed, she did “have that person arrested.” By happy coincidence, his bail hearing has been set for three days after the election, by which time he will have served his purpose. These two videos — the Islamophobic one and the Obamosexual one — bookend the remarkable but wholly deserved collapse of the president’s reelection campaign.
Go read the whole thing.

Reliapundit has two videos which, when viewed one after the other, encapsulate the Obama shrinkage.

GO WATCH THEM.

Denmark: Jews Banned From Displaying Israeli Flag At “Diversity” Festival, Officials Worried May Provoke Muslims And Leftists


From the Copenhagen Post:

A city hall request that the Israeli flag not be displayed at a street festival intended to promote diversity has Jewish community leaders wondering what “diversity” really means to some city leaders. 
During planning meetings for September’s Smag Verden – Mangfoldighedsfest, a celebration of the foods and cultures of different countries, Jewish participants were warned that some would interpret the flying of the Israeli flag as a provocation. 
“We were told that is was better if we did not fly our flag,” Malgorzata H Hansen, who represented local Jews at the meetings, told Berlingske newspaper. 
Organisers said they feared clashes between Jewish, Muslim and leftist groups if the Israeli flag was displayed. 
Originally, representatives of TaskForce Inklusion, the group responsible for communicating with all of the groups participating in the festival, told the Jewish representatives that all participating associations were being asked not to bring flags.

BUSTED… Former Top Defense Official: If Obama Gave Order to Protect Benghazi Heroes There’d Be Paper Trail (There Was No Order)


Barack is up shit creek.
From Gateway Pundit:
Obama Fiddled While Benghazi Burned–
Earlier today Barack Obama told Denver’s WUSA TV this in regard to the Benghazi 9-11 terror attack,
“I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.”
Tonight however, Bing West, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense, told Greta Van Susteren,
“If that actually happened the way President Obama said it happened, there’s a paper trail and I think people reasonably enough can say, “Can we see the order?” because hundreds of others supposedly saw this order.
Obama just got caught. He lied about his securing our personnel in Benghazi. And now the world will know about it.
There was no order to protect our men on the ground.

It looks like Barack just boxed himself in.

When even the cynical are shocked? What does that mean?


Israel rattled by rise in anti-Semitic rhetoric from Egypt


The new tone coming out of Egypt - punctuated by President Mohammed Morsi mouthing “Amen” to an Imam’s call for the destruction of Israel - is rattling residents of the Jewish state, who claim the Obama administration isn’t taking the ratcheted-up rhetoric seriously.
Lip reading by the Anti Defamation League and the Middle East Media Research Institute confirmed Morsi’s approval of a prayer delivered by influential Imam Futouh Abd Al-Nabi Mansour last Friday, in which he stated, “Oh Allah … grant us victory over the infidels. Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters.” Israelis already nervous by the rise of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood say it is the latest example of a disturbing trend.
“There is no question that the rise to power of the Muslim Brotherhood has prompted open expressions of anti-Semitism in ways that were never publicly expressed during the Mubarak period,” Efraim Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Israel office told Fox News.com. “The Obama administration is treating this far less seriously than it should be.”
After 1450 years the Jews are surprised a (maybe THE) political and military leader of the Sunni Arab nation that he says ‘amen’ to a prayer which basically urges death to the Jews (and their supporters, ahem)?
Here is the philosophical leader’s comment about that:
…explaining the purpose of man and his historical role in philosophical terms … is one of the tricks played by world Jewry, whose purpose is to eliminate all limitations, especially the limitations imposed by faith and religion, so that Jews may penetrate into body politics of the whole world and then may be free to perpetuate their evil designs. At the top of the list of these activities is usury, the aim of which is that all the wealth of mankind end up in the hands of Jewish financial institutions which run on interest. [Milestones, p.110-111]
What could possible be surprising that the CHILD of this upbringing wants Jews dead, and their supporters dead?
At the beginning the enemies of the Muslim community did not fight openly with arms but tried to fight the community in its belief through intrigue, spreading ambiguities, creating suspicions. They do likewise today. They have plotted and they go on plotting against this nation. Hundreds and thousands have infiltrated the Muslim world, and they still do in the guise of Orientalists. The pupils of the latter fill today the positions of the intellectual life of the countries whose people call themselves Muslim. Their aim is clearly shown by the Protocols [of the Elders of Zion]. The Jews are behind materialism, animal sexuality, the destruction of the family and the dissolution of society. Principal among them are Marx, Freud, Durkheim and the Jew Jean-Paul Sartre.
(Sayyid Qutb, “Ma’rakatuna ma’a al-Yahud,” (Our Battle Against the Jews) [essay] 1951. 
To ignore these basic racist building blocks of the freely elected govt of the people, which is similar to the MAJORITY of recently elected govt’s. from Africa thru Asia will not make it go away.
I understand that here in the USA this is a bitter truth, that any Republican leader (and any Democratic one, if there are any) simply can not touch before this election, but in Israel?
Israel will lose this war, and make no mistake, it is a war, if it does not construct a plan to inform the American people of the REAL attitudes of the people they face in the Middle East.
The party that propelled Morsi to power, however, has made no secret of its contempt for Judaism and Christianity. When Mohammed Badie in 2010 became leader of the Muslim Brotherhood - and consequently President Morsi’s spiritual guide - he stepped up his attacks on Israel even while Hosni Mubarak still held an iron grip on power in Egypt.
Determined to recapture Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa (Golden Dome) Mosque, Badie told his followers, “Every Muslim is obliged to wage Jihad in order to restore it (Jerusalem) to Muslim rule”. Of the Jews he added, “Allah would free the world of their filth and corruption…Jerusalem will be regained only through Jihad, not through negotiations.”
Badie’s continued use of inflammatory and racist language against Jews recently prompted the Wiesenthal Center, an internationally renowned human rights organization, to insist that President Obama condemn the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood and, if necessary, cut off ties with the organization, until he withdraws his comments. No clear condemnation of the organization has yet been issued by the U.S. administration.
“They are giving Egypt’s new leadership tremendous latitude when it comes to things like this, despite the fact that these are the type of issues on which they should be held accountable,” Zuroff said. “It was hoped that the Arab spring would bring about a rise in democracy, but that simply hasn’t been the case. The undercurrent of Islamism from people who down the line would want to apply Sharia law in its most fundamental sense is a serious cause for concern.”
Undercurrent?
Down the line?
The future is HERE. Even the Wiesenthal Center is kidding themselves. Only ONE THING is holding back the Brotherhood. Those here in the USA are telling Morsi and the Nour Party (who probably doesn’t even care) that if the American People come to understand WHO the Ikwhan really is, what the Ikwhan really want, what the Ikwhan really believes, the American people, white, black, yellow, and green will all see every Arab in a pointy sheet with 2 eye holes and a swastika across their chest.
on Thursday Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon, speaking on Israel radio, voiced rare recent criticism of Egypt’s efforts to rein in Jihadists in Sinai, saying, “It’s a question of Egypt deciding to assert its sovereignty against terrorists… It hasn’t happened yet.”
Rare?
Israeli criticism of the Muslim Brotherhood and these other new govts, all the choice of the people of those lands should be loud and ceaseless, both within Israel and ON TV HERE in the USA. Every opportunity should be taken to demonstrate that racism.
There is a lot of talk about a 2nd holocaust via Iran, but an Ikwhan lead Egypt will never take their treaty with the Jews seriously, and take the first opportunity to void it with it’s Army and Air Force, an Army and Air Force now equipped with American weapons (a REPEAT of 1979 in an Iran filled with F-4’s and F-14’S, and M-60’s, btw).
Israel has not had to consider a 2 front war among what it has thought about since 1973.
Meanwhile, Israel is losing the war on its own legitimacy via a racist and coded stream of blandishments and pressure from the Muslim world which began in 1973 while America waited on gas lines.
It’s time for the Israelis to wake up and strike back via the Jerry Delafemina’s here in the USA outside AIPAC and other such organizations.
It’s time for those who find among THEIR near ancestors, those who fought and won the civil rights war here, and the war against South African racism, to recognize that a far larger, far older war is THE SAME ONE.

Obama 'Admin' warns Texas: Texas can’t arrest international election observers

From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

International election observers planning to visit Texas polling places have “full immunity” from being arrested in the United States, the State Department said when discussing a letter from the Texas Attorney General. 

I’m not going to get into any kind of hypothetical situations or predict where this is going to go other than to say we have every expectation that this will be worked out and to state the fact, which is that under U.S. law they are eligible for immunities,” said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. 

Reporters tried to get her to state explicitly that Texas could not arrest election observers from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), but Nuland would only reiterate that OSCE observers have full immunity.

Attorney General Greg Abbott, R-Texas, warned OSCE that it “may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance,” asThe Hill noted. Nuland dismissed Abbott’s observation that OSCE consulted with Project Vote, a group that was affiliated with ACORN before that now-discredited organization collapsed under the weight of voter fraud charges.


Read the full story here.

EPA SEZ:There are some fights worth provoking. You arrest them and they can then claim immunity through their embassies.THE NEXT DAY they get out. Put them in the police station, and send out for Chinese food. They don't have to be locked up with a bunch of thugs.

Northeast Intelligence Network:

The hidden real truth about Benghazi


By Douglas J. Hagmann
26 October 2012: Most people know that we’ve been lied to about the attacks in Benghazi, but few realize the extent of those lies or the hidden secrets they cover. After all, the lie is different at every level. Thanks to a well placed source with extensive knowledge about the attack, the disturbing truth is slowly beginning to emerge and is lining up with information contained in my previous articles published here weeks ago. The truth reveals the most serious situation in the world today as it involves the interests and destinies of us all.
A mosaic of lies

According to the U.S. government, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed during a spontaneous protest at the consulate office in Benghazi by a frenzied crowd of Muslims outraged over an obscure internet video. Recently released “sensitive but not classified e-mails” from Stevens to the U.S. Department of State painted a picture of poor security for U.S. personnel and the embassy, which was obviously true but had little to do with the events of September 11, 2012.
The failure to dispatch an extraction team or otherwise rescue the men during a firefight that lasted upwards of nine grueling and tortuous hours was not the result of any intelligence failure, but caused by our unwillingness to widen the conflict and expose the nature and scale of our true mission in Benghazi.
Based on information provided by my source and corroborated elsewhere, the official account by administration officials is a mosaic of lies that were necessary to cover the unpalatable truth of covert actions taking place in Libya, Syria, Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The primary objective of our covert actions was to secretly arm anti-Assad “rebels” in Syria by funneling arms from Libya to Syria via Turkey, with other destinations that included Jordan and Lebanon. Regarding the threat to Stevens and the other murdered Americans, the truth will reformat the persistent question posed to government officials, from UN Ambassador Susan Rice to White House Spokesman Jay Carney and others from “how could you not have known” to “how could you have done these things?”
First, it is important to understand that Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Dougherty and Tyrone Woods were not killed at a consulate office in Benghazi as there is not such office there. They died at one of the largest CIA operations centers in the Middle East, which was located in Benghazi and served as the logistics headquarters for arms and weapons being shipped out of the post-Qaddafi Libya.
Although the U.S. government insisted that Stevens was involved in securing and destroying the numerous caches of arms and weapons once under the control of Qaddafi, the operation was more complex than that. The visual accounts of weapons being destroyed were indeed real, but those weapons were not operational. The working weapons were actually separated and transported to holding facilities for their eventual use in Syria. Russia was fully aware of this operation and warned the U.S. not to engage in the destabilization of Syria, as doing so would endanger their national security interests. Deposing Assad, as despotic as he might be, and replacing him with a Muslim Brotherhood led regime would likely lead to unrestrained Islamic chaos across the region.
The Turkish warning
According to my source, Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 to meet with his Turkish counterpart, who reportedly warned Stevens that the operation was compromised. They met in person so that Stevens could be shown overhead satellite images, taken by the Russians, of nefarious activities taking place in Turkey. But just what were these nefarious activities?
It is reasonable to suspect that these activities were more dire than just your average “gun running” operation. Since the overthrow of Qaddafi, it is estimated that upwards of 40 million tons of weapons and arms were shipped out of Libya to Syria. But it was also known inside intelligence circles that Qaddafi possessed chemical weapons in addition to numerous surface to air missiles. Could it be that Russia obtained unmistakable surveillance footage of the anti-Assad “rebels” being shown how to load chemical payloads onto missiles inside Turkey near the border of Syria? Weapons, of course, that were shipped from Libya by the CIA in conjunction with various Muslim Brotherhood rebel groups. If so, such weapons could be used as a “false flag” type of operation – one that would be implemented to “set-up” Assad by making it appear that he was using these weapons on forces dedicated to his overthrow.
The blow-back by the international community would be swift and punishing, and the entirety of the civilized world would be demanding his overthrow. NATO would then be used to expedite his ouster, and Russia’s moral position within the international community would be weakened. Was the meeting held to show Stevens that the operation was compromised and that they had to stop?
A Nation/State sponsored attack?
While the administration asserts that the attack in Benghazi was conducted by a group of rebels acting alone, the facts seem to indicate otherwise. The level of coordination was such that we did not deploy military assets, located just an hour or two away by air, to rescue Stevens and the others at the CIA operations center in their time of need. If, as the administration contends, that the attack was perpetuated by a group of frenzied rebels, our military could have easily handled them in short order. So why was there no rescue operation?
Perhaps the statements made yesterday by Leon Panetta, U.S. Secretary of Defense provides some insight if one analyzes the essence of those statements. Among other things, Panetta said that “…the basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on…” Well, it has been confirmed we did know what was taking place on the ground in Benghazi, so exactly what did Panetta mean by this statement?
Against the backdrop of the official story, it makes little sense. If, however, once considers the alternative, that the attack was coordinated and was a nation/state sponsored attack, then it becomes clearer. Panetta and the highest levels of this administration likely knew exactly what we were doing, and knew that the operation was compromised. They knew, or had reason to believe, that the attack was being conducted at a nation/state level in response to our covert operation in Libya and arming the anti-Assad Syrian opposition.
Although Russia figures prominently here, Iran now comes into focus as Russia is not likely to directly engage U.S. forces. They must, however, protect their interests. Much like we were using anti-Assad forces to advance our objectives in Syria, Russia was using Iranian-backed forces to protect theirs. It appears that the attacks were conducted or facilitated by Iranian assets – perhaps as many as three teams of assets in Benghazi.
As the White House and other agencies monitored intelligence in real-time, they faced a dilemma. They knew that the nation/state sponsored attack teams were lying in wait for U.S. rescue forces to arrive, which is the reason the fight did not conclusively end sooner. They did not know exactly where all of the attack teams were, but knew they were present based on signal communication intercepts. Could they risk such exposure by deploying a rescue team to Benghazi, only to end up with another Black Hawk down type scenario? In addition to that scenario, the entire operation now becomes exposed for what it is. Take another look at Panetta’s statement in that context. Does it now make more sense? Bad PR in an election year, no?
As daylight approached with no response from the U.S. and no aid to the Americans under fire, the attack teams had to disperse into the cover of the remaining darkness, but not before their mission was accomplished. And sadly, it was.
Fallout
From the day of attack in Benghazi, Iran has been engaged in a full spectrum attack on the U.S. and NATO across the board involving embassies, bombings and even cyber attacks. All of this is the fallout from the arms and weapons smuggling operation, which was far greater than understood by the Western media.
Russia has now moved their contingent of S-400 missiles into much of Syria in anticipation of NATO establishing an “air cap” over Syria. A ten-mile “buffer zone” along Syria’s border has been created for Syrian refugees, but it also acts as a catalyst for the encroachment into Syrian territory. It sets the stage for further advancement and erosion of Syrian land, incrementally, of course.
It is also of critical importance to note that last weekend, Russia completed large-scale exercises of their Strategic Nuclear Forces under the watchful command of President Vladimir Putin. These were the first such nuclear exercises conducted since the fall of the Soviet Union.
To those with discernment, it is obvious that we are at the precipice of World War III. Putin himself stated as much, noting that WW III will not start in Iran but Syria, his own “red line in the sand.”

David Petraeus: No One In the CIA Ordered Operatives To Stand Down

From Ace of Spades:
No one... in the CIA. 
Hmm. Who would be in a position to order the stand-down, who's not in the CIA?Hmmmm... 
It would have to be someone very high ranking in the chain of command, obviously.Not military -- I don't think the military can order the CIA. 
So, someone high ranking who is not military and also not in the CIA, but who gives orders to the CIA. 
I give up. I can't solve this mystery. 
Can you?
GO READ THE WHOLE THING. 

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE:


Blackfive: A US Troop Would Not Have Been Painting a Target Unless There Was a Spectre or Armed Predator In the Air to Fire On It

Now that he points this out, it's obvious-- a laser designator isn't a weapon. It's a designator which a flying weapons platform sees and then strikes. 
A SEAL wouldn't just be pointing a laser designator at a target for shits and giggles. If there were no platform in the air that could fire on the target, he wouldn't be pointing a laser designator at the target. He'd be pointing a gun. 
So there was almost certainly a platform capable of firing the weapon in the air. 
And further: At that point, only two men would have been in a position to veto the strike.
YOU KNOW, I SAY SOME STRANGE STUFF AROUND HERE, AND I AM AWARE OF IT.

I'M AWARE THAT SOME OF MY VIEWS ARE OUTSIDE OF MAINSTREAM THOUGHT. I RECOGNIZE THEY SOUND CRAZY TO A ENLIGHTENED HUMAN BEING.

I KNOW IT SOUNDS INSANCE WHEN I SAY ALLAH IS SATAN. YOU GUYS WONDER IF I AM SERIOUS.

ANSWER IS, I DON'T KNOW. BUT, WHAT I DO KNOW IS IF THERE REALLY IS A SATAN, THEN WE COULD EXPECT HIM TO BE AN AWFUL LOT LIKE ALLAH.

AND, I HAVE ALSO BEEN SAYING I THINK THIS MURDER OF AMBASSADOR STEVENS WAS A "SET-UP".

I KNOW THAT SOUNDS LIKE AN INSANE CONSPIRACY THEORY.

BUT AS ALL OF THE EVIDENCE POINTS BACK AT ONE GUY, MAYBE WE ARE STARTING TO SEE THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY AT ALL.

IT'S JUST ONE GUY SETTING UP ANOTHER GUY F OR WHO KNOWS WHAT REASON.

GOT ANY IDEAS?

OUR VICE PRESIDENT Biden to Charles Woods, father of slain SEAL Tyrone Woods:

DID YOUR SON ALWAYS HAVE BALLS THE SIZE OF CUE BALLS?

 

He's such a bullshitter.


All  their other malfeasance aside Benghazi and it's cover up ALONE should be enough to force the resignation of the President, if not his impeachment, and those in the administration WHO HAD REAL TIME KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT WAS GOING ON.

THE MISSION OF MARINES AND SEALS ETC DOES NOT INCLUDE NOT ENGAGING BECAUSE THEY'RE AFRAID THEY MIGHT GET HURT. THAT IS ANATHEMA TO THEIR THINKING.


These guys need to be stood down.

Anyone who would re-elect them is out of their fucking minds.

Gallup: Romney 51%, Obama 46%

Well, after Pastorius put up a picture of crap, I thought I'd lighten up the mood around here a little bit.

I think we'll see this back and forth a lot in the coming days however it seems that Romney is staying above 50% for now, which is a positive, while Obama is yet to touch 50% on any nationwide poll.

Also, this is a nationwide poll, the more important polls are the ones for individual states. Still, it sounds good to see Romney 5 points ahead of Obama.

It's Looking More and More and More and More and More and More and More and More and More Like the Murder of Ambassador Stevens Was a Set-Up ... Uh, Part of the "Normalization Process"

From Ace of Spades:

CIA ORDERED TO STAND DOWN DURING BENGHAZI ATTACK;
US SEALs KILLED IN ATTACK DISOBEYED ORDERS IN HEROIC EFFORT TO SAVE STEVENS & SMITH


I hope you understand I don't mean anything bad by "disobeyed orders." I think their action casts doubt on the orders themselves. 
This is bizarre. 
The military was never ordered to act, and even the local CIA was ordered to stand down. 
Stevens and Smith were literally left to fend for themselves, against a terrorist attack conducted by, what, 15-20 people (or more), all armed, including with mortars and RPGs.

Darkness Descending in England

In the UK, Freedom of Speech is not a protected right. It is a platitude, meant to be repeated like a New Age Mantra, to make oneself feel warm and tingly.

But, when the chips are down, the Police can arrest you for "Conspiracy to create a Public Disturbance", and they can hold you for the rest of your life, with the support of the Laws and the Justice System.

That's not Justice. That is not Human Rights. That is a Fascist Police State, meant to crush any disagreement. 




From Pamela Geller at the American Thinker:

The arrest of over 53 people in the United Kingdom is the beginning of the end for once-great Britain.  The leaders of the English Defence League (EDL), Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, were among those arrested, as well as Paul Weston of the British Freedom Party (BFP).  
I spoke with Kevin Carroll about his recent arrest and that of Robinson and Weston, and he told me the appalling details.
Carroll told me that British authorities tried everything in the book to stop him from running for police and crime commissioner (PCC) for the Bedfordshire Police Authority.  Nonetheless, he officially won the right to run for PCC last Friday.  But then, the very next day, British authorities carried out these mass arrests of EDL and BFP members, stripping them and forcing them to wear white paper overalls like those given to incarcerated terrorists.  They were allowed no phone calls.
Meanwhile, British police raided the homes of Carroll, Robinson, and three others who had been arrested.  "They absolutely ransacked mine," Carroll told me.  "They smashed the door off and wrecked my home.  They took my only vehicle, with all the tools of my trade inside, and impounded it, as well as Tommy's car."  
The police, the bomb squad, forensics teams, and sniffer dogs spent seven and a half hours stripping Carroll's van to the bone.  "When they finished," he said, "they found nothing!  
They loaded it up with bugs and GPS monitors and threw everything in the back; it looks like it's been in a blender."
After smashing the door to Carroll's home off its hinges, police officials repaired it, got a locksmith to put on a new lock, and left with the new keys, leaving Carroll locked out of his own home.  When Carroll was released, still wearing his white paper prison suit, it was dark and raining; true to form, police officials offered him no transportation, even though it was late at night on a Sunday.
Robinson is being held in Wandsworth prison, an old and antiquated structure with a large population of Muslim prisoners.  Weston was arrested and later released without charge for refusing to leave a reception area without information about Robinson.  And it is clear why officials would not want that information to get out: not only has Robinson been placed with the general prison population instead of segregated for his own protection, but prison officials have even put him in a cell with hostile Muslims.  
He was allowed to call his wife Jenna, and he told her that he knew it was going to be "lively" in the cell.  That was an understatement: prison officials have deliberately put Robinson in physical danger and even imperiled his life.  Carroll contacted a high-ranking police official to request that Robinson be segregated, and she received a promise that he would be, but it hasn't happened yet -- and Robinson has even been denied bail.
"They are really coming at us with everything," Carroll told me.  "I'm even on police bail at the moment for 'conspiracy to cause a public nuisance.'"  This is a politically motivated and trumped up charge, but in Britain it can carry a life sentence.
According to Carroll, Robinson was incarcerated for leaving the United Kingdom and entering the United States fraudulently for our September 11, 2012 Stop Islamization of Nations free speech conference in New York City.  Robinson could get twelve to eighteen months in prison just for that.  "They are really turning up the heat here, Pamela," said Carroll.  "They are going after all of us, especially Tommy and me."  The EDL said in a statement: "Tommy has been dragged from one court to another -- almost always without any serious chance of conviction -- simply in order to help disrupt our activities and to prevent us from voicing our legitimate concerns about the spread of Islamic extremism."
Carroll's bail hearing is set for November 30, which gives him just two weeks after the November 15 elections to prepare his defense.  Anyone who can vote for Bedfordshire police authority commissioner and who loves freedom should vote for Kevin Carroll; it could be your last hope to preserve the freedom of speech and the principle of the equality of rights for all people in Britain.
Clearly the establishment elites in Britain are extremely worried that Carroll might win and upset the entrenched culture of accommodation to Islam and sharia; in fact, one of the briefs in Carroll's case actually stated that this was why he was arrested -- because he is running for PCC.  The dhimmi elites understand that this could be the beginning of their end.  "The police," said Carroll, "are out to finish us on behalf of the establishment."
This is a defining moment in British history, as significant as any major turning point.  It is in many respects like the Night of the Long Knives, which marked the point of no return from Nazism for Germany.  With these outrageous and politically motivated arrests, Britain has entered a dark and dangerous new era.  Said Weston: "The full power of the State appears to be concentrating on shutting down any political dissent.  This does not really feel like a democratic country anymore."
Carroll is organizing a demonstration outside Wandsworth prison this coming Saturday morning.  All free citizens in Britain should be there.  And is there no one is the political establishment in the U.K. who has any decency, integrity, or spine?  No one who will stand up against these outrages?

Unbelievable: UN 'human rights council' calls for boycott of US companies, arrest of their employees


From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

Remember how the Obama administration insisted on joining the United Nations 'human rights council' so that they could 'reform' it from within show they were different than the Bush administration? Remember how, in a bid to bind a future administration if Obama loses the election, Obama insisted on re-upping for a second term far before it was necessary to make that decision? And of course you know that the 'human rights council' has anagenda item on Israel - and only on Israel - as if Israel were not only a human rights violator, but the only human rights violator in the world.

Well, now the UN is paying back President Hussein Obama for his devotion to the 'human rights council.' On Thursday, the council called for boycotting American companies that do business with Israel. That includes companies like Motorola, Hewlett Packard and Caterpillar. It also includes companies based in Britain, France, Mexico, Israel and others. Really (Hat Tip: Lance K).
The Free Beacon has obtained a report soon to be released by the United Nations that calls for an international campaign of legal attacks and economic warfare on a group of American companies that do business in Israel, including Hewlett-Packard, Caterpillar Inc., and Motorola Solutions Inc.

...

In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman blasted the report and the HRC’s special rapporteur: “We believe you should have prevented the Secretariat from being a party to Mr. Falk’s anti-Israel agenda. Mr. Falk’s entire tenure as Special Rapporteur has served to undermine the credibility of the institution of the United Nations.”
The report attempts to instigate a campaign of boycott, divestment, sanctions, and legal action against a litany of international companies doing business in Israel. In addition to American companies, the U.N. targets include major European firms such as Veolia Environnement, Group 4 Security, the Dexia Group, the Volvo Group.
“The costs to companies and businesses of failing to respect international humanitarian law are considerable,” the report warns, “including damage to a company’s public image, impact on shareholder decisions and share price and could result in employees being criminally responsible for rights abuses.”
But wait - it gets worse.
The report warns American employees of targeted companies that they face legal risks.

“Employees of companies can face investigation and prosecution for human rights violations committed irrespective of where the violation was committed.”

In addition to legal action against American employees of targeted companies, the Special Rapporteur “concludes that all companies that operate in or otherwise have dealings with Israeli settlements should be boycotted.” The companies should ”be prepared to accept any consequences—reputation, financial, or legal—of continuing operations.”

Should the companies continue doing business in Israel, the Human Rights Council “calls on civil society to actively pursue legal and political redress against non-complying business” and “to vigorously pursue initiatives to boycott, divest and sanction the businesses highlighted in this report” and “calls on the international community to consider requesting an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice” to punish the businesses.
Mitt Romney should call now for the US to withdraw from the 'human rights council' and should pledge to withdraw immediately should he become President. Enough is enough.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE:

Pres Barack HUSSEIN Obama issued a proclamation observing United Nations Day 2012, urging all U.S. governors to do the same

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama issued a proclamation observing United Nations Day 2012, urging all U.S. governors to do the same.
“I urge the Governors of the 50 States, and the officials of all other areas under the flag of the United States, to observe United Nations Day with appropriate ceremonies and activities,” the presidential proclamation said.
PASTORIUS COMMENT:

IT MAKES SENSE THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WOULD CELEBRATE UN DAY. AFTER ALL, WE AS A NATION ARE INVOLVED IN THE UNITED NATIONS. IT IS PART OF OUR DIPLOMATIC EFFORTS TO FORM  RELATIONSHIPS AND SOLVE PROBLEMS OVER TIME.

BUT THE GOVERNORS OF OUR STATES HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE UNITED NATIONS. STATES ARE NOT PART OF THE NATIONAL DIPLOMATIC EFFORT. STATES ARE INVOLVED IN THE BUSINESS OF THE STATES, NOT OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

THERE IS NO PURPOSE FOR INDIVIDUAL STATES TO BE PROMOTING THE UNITED NATIONS, MUCH LESS PARTICIPATING IN ANY UN EFFORTS.

IT WOULD SEEM TO ME THIS IS A VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION IN SOME WAY (OF IT'S SPIRIT, IF NOT IT'S LETTER).
