Fascinating prediction of Francois Hollande's electoral demise today by Patrick Buisson, Nicolas Sarkzoy's public opinion eminence grise.
Nicknamed "the guru", PBuisson, 62, is the man who advised Sarkozy to woo National Front voters in 2007 on a national identity ticket. His spectacular success in doing so led Sarkozy to declare "This is the man who won me the election" when he handed him the Légion d'Honneur for a job well done.
The former head of a far-Right journal also famously predicted the precise percentage of French who would vote "non" in the 2005 referendum on the European constitutional treaty. "If I am wrong, you will never hear of me again," he is said to have told Sarko, who, wowed by his prescience, took him on the next day.
A proposed $1 billion water supply project, including a 280-mile pipeline, which is aimed at providing running water for Gallup, N.M., and Navajos was fast-tracked by President Barack Obama. The Navajos live on a 27,000-square-mile reservation where 40% of residents have no running water.
Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) writes in a new book that President Obama ditched him in the 2010 election after he helped Obama win the biggest legislative victory of his term by passing healthcare reform. Oh, dear
Specter also claims that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not uphold his promise to grant him seniority accrued over 28 years of service in the Senate as a Republican. You don't say... My, my, my... A democ**t with an agenda. What a surprise. That has never happened before
Specter, who rocked Washington's political establishment and made headlines around the country when he left the Republican Party to join Democ**ts in April of 2009, has kept quiet about these slights until now.
He makes surprising revelations about Republican leaders, as well -- he writes that former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) told him that he would have made the same decision to defect from the GOP if he had been in Specter's position. One loser advises another...
Specter says that one of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's (Ky.) first concerns after learning of the impending party switch was that he might be blamed for driving Specter out of the GOP. McConnell, however, quickly got over that when he learned it was just Specter who was defecting confirming what everyone else already knew.
Specter declined to discuss the behind-the-scenes machinations of his party switch when he granted an interview with several news outlets on his final day in the Senate, when he reminisced about his career in his hideaway on the first floor of the Capitol. "...there I was in the senate cloakroom fighting off evil republikkkans..."
He promised instead to put the juicy details in his memoir, "Life Among the Cannibals," which will go on sale later this month. The Hill obtained an advanced copy. Soon to be available in bargain bins in finer stores a week after that...
It was written with his former communications director, Charles Robbins. James Taranto notes Monday: Awful, isn't it? Specter trusted these guys, and they just stabbed him in the back! It must have shaken him to the core to realize just how disloyal distinguished elected officials were capable of being.
My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge credit-card bills and at the end of the month, if I try to pay them off, he shouts at me, saying I am stealing his money. He says pay the minimum and let our kids worry about the rest, but already we can hardly keep up
with the interest. Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us. The few that do are
an odd bunch, to whom he has been giving a lot of expensive gifts, running up our bills even more. Also, he has gotten religious. One week
he hangs out with Catholics and the next with people who say the Pope is the Anti-Christ, and the next he's with Muslims.Fi nally, the last
straw. He's demanding that before anyone can be in the same room with him, they must sign a loyalty oath. It's just so horribly creepy! Can
Suck it up and stop whining, Michelle. You're getting to live in the White House for free, travel the world, and have others pay for
everything for you. You can divorce the jerk any time you want. The rest of us are stuck with the idiot for one more year!
My sister also worked for Dole during the 70's and 80's. Her name was Merilyn Berryman. In 1971 I got orders to go back to the Nam and I called her and said "I don't want to go." two days later new orders came down. Connections are a great thing to have.
Seriously, isn't this an admission of malfeasance in office? Is there not some law, statute or rule that prohibits a Senator from essentially selling his vote? Are there no remedies available to the American people, civil or criminal, for this gross dereliction of duty. Anybody?
EXCLUSIVE: O'KEEFE VIDEO EXPOSES VOTER FRAUD-FRIENDLY POLICIES IN VERMONT
James O'Keefe's Project Veritas has released a new video exposing just how easy it is to commit voter fraud in Vermont.
See video at link.
The video, a sequel to O'Keefe's "Primary of the Living Dead" in New Hampshire, shows a Veritas agent entering various voting places around the state of Vermont, giving a different name each time. Each time, he is given a ballot without showing an ID, to his disbelief.
In the video, the agent repeatedly requests (but does not take) a Republican primary ballot. As he explained to Breitbart.com: "We wanted to remind viewers this is not a partisan issue. This is a situation wherein anyone -- Republican or Democrat -- can exploit the system."
The new video follows in the wake of a highly-politicized media attack on Mr. O'Keefe after his exposure of voter fraud in New Hampshire. Those videos resulted in calls from the left for O'Keefe's arrest. However, the videos soon resulted in the New Hampshire State Senate passing a new bill requiring voter ID.
O'Keefe's new video from Vermont could not be more timely, coming the day after the U.S. Department of Justice's civil rights division blocked a Texas photo ID requirement for voters--to the applause of the American Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the law was "discriminatory" against "Latinos, African-Americans, elderly citizens, and others."
The timing is good since AG Holder has been making noises about the illegality of requiring voters to show I.D.

"ACLU ... claimed that the Law was discriminatory ..." > IOW, aka SECULAR "SHARIA".
All Radicla Islam + JIahd Boyz neeed is a good super-PC scalpel lawyer whom can argue before US Courts that iff non-Muslim Minorities can earn LEGAL "SPECIAL FAVORS/TREATMENT" WIDIN THE LAW + SOCIETY - YOU KNOW, "UNIVERSALITY" - WHY NOT FOR ANTI/NON-SECULAR, LEGAL ISLAMIC SHARIA IN THE US???
TOO MANY PRE-EXISTING LEGAL PRECEDENTS TO DENY SHARIA TO MUSLIMS IN THE US.
And Radical Islam + Jihadists cannot be blamed because US Law did it to US Law, i.e. was detrimental unto itself.
