Subject: Fwd: 11/17/09 - Flight #297 Atlanta to Houston. I don't know if this is true... but it could be. Snopes, who I only 1/2 trust, said it was 1/2 true. According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution, AirTran said in a statement: "After conducting additional research into this situation, we have verified, according to flight manifests (legally binding documents) that the individual that allegedly created a first-hand account of events on-board AirTran Airways Flight 297, a Theodore Petruna (a real person), was never actually on-board the flight." I don't know if I can actually believe that to be true.

If it is true, it is something to think about. You be the judge.


I, Gene Hackemack, received this email from my good friend Tedd Petruna, a diver at the NBL facility [Neutral Buoyancy Lab], at NASA Houston, whom I used to work with. Tedd happened to be on this same Flt. 297, Atlanta to Houston.

In my opinion, the Muslims are all getting very brave now, since they have one of their own in the white house... read Tedd's story below.

P.S. can you imagine, our own news media now are so politically correct that they are afraid to report that these were all Muslims... unbelievable. Thank God for people like Tedd Petruna.

Gene Hackemack


One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday,

November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff. It was on Fox.

That is NOT what happened.

I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire. 2 sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if she was not there.

The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same and this took out the 2nd

stewardess. In the back of the plane at this time, 2 younger Muslims, one in the back aisle, and one in front of him, window, began to show footage of a porno they had taped the night before, and were very loud about it.

Now... they are only permitted to do this prior to Jihad. If a Muslim man goes into a strip club, he has to view the woman via mirror with his back to her. (don't ask me... I don't make the rules, but I've studied) The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have electronic devices on at this time. To which one of the men said "shut up infidel dog!" She went to take the camcorder and he began to scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all 11 of them got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I had had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size say "I got your back."

I grabbed the man who had been on the phone by the arm and said "you WILL go sit down or you Will be thrown from this plane!" As I "led" him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed out with him. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said; "You WILL do the same!" He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he was going to go. As I escorted him forward the plane doors open and 3 TSA agents and 4 police officers entered. Me and my new Texan friend were told to cease and desist for they had this under control. I was happy to oblige actually. There was some commotion in the back, but within moments, all 11

were escorted off the plane. They then unloaded their luggage.

We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happen, when suddenly, the door open again and on walked all 11! Stone faced, eyes front and robotic (the only way I can describe it). The stewardess from the back had been in tears and when she saw this, she was having NONE of it!

Being that I was up front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agent there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston. The captain and co-captain came out and told the agent "We and our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. 5 minutes later, the cabin door opened again and a whole new crew walked on.

Again... this is where I had had enough! I got up and asked "What the hell is going on?!" I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for the delay and I would be home shortly. I said "I'm getting off this plane".

The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. Now I'm mad! I said "I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that door, or I'm going through that door with you under my arm! But I am going through that door!" And I heard a voice behind me say; "So am I". Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the same. Within 2 minutes, I was walking off that plane where I was met with more agents who asked me to write a statement. I had 5 hours to kill at this point so why the hell not. Due to the amount of people who got off that flight, it was cancelled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6pm. I got here at 12:30am.

Look up the date. Flight #297 Atlanta to Houston.

If this wasn't a dry run, I don't know what one is. The terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it.

I'm telling this to you because I want you to know. The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes.

President Obama Heads to Copenhagen as Climate Conference Draws to Close

President Barack Obama is due to head to Copenhagen overnight to join the leaders of over 100 other nations for the final day of the U.N. Climate Change conference in the Danish capital.

Sonja Pace

December 17,2009

The question remains what sort of compromise they can agree on to cut greenhouse gas emissions and to help the most affected and less developed nations of the world cope with global warming.

For the past two weeks thousands of delegates have been meeting in a conference center on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Their task was to come up with a global plan to deal with climate change.

But, agreement has been elusive. Many of the sessions were taken up with finger pointing and rhetoric of who's to blame for global warming, who suffers most, and who needs to do more.

Addressing the conference, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd warned that, as he put it, no one has come here with "clean hands."

"The inescapable truth is that we, the developed world, carry the overwhelming historical responsibility for the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere," Rudd said.

Prime Minister Rudd's message was that the developed world must set things right. But, he also admonished emerging economies to not continue to spew out greenhouse gases.

There have been major differences here at the conference between developed and developing nations and with major emerging economies.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a major funding initiative with a promise to contribute to a global fund of $100 billion annually to help poor nations deal with climate change. But, she said that could only happen if all major economies agree on emissions cuts and on proper monitoring of implementation. She made a clear reference to China, with whom the U.S. has been at odds over the issue.
"The United States is prepared to work with other countries toward a goal of jointly mobilizing $100 billion a year by 2020 to address the climate change needs of developing countries," Hillary Clinton said.

But, Prime Minister Rudd reminded delegates that everyone has a stake.

"The truth is that unless we all act together because we are all in this together there will be limited prospects of development because the planet itself will no longer sustain development," Rudd said.

That was much the message from French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who admonished his fellow world leaders that failure is not an option.

He warned them they would all have to answer before global opinion and public opinion at home if they failed to act. Science has told us what must be done, he said, and we are the last generation to be able to do it.

In an impassioned speech, President Sarkozy said everyone would have to compromise. He appealed to world leaders to sit down and work out their differences and suggested a serious working meeting after Thursday's dinner to do just that.

Initial hopes had been the Copenhagen conference could come up with a successor to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which mandates emission cuts for most developed nations. Developing countries are adamant that they want Kyoto extended beyond its 2012 expiration date. Leaders here have indicated they are looking for a political framework agreement from Copenhagen, with another summit to be held in about six months to work out details and turn it into a legally binding accord.

Cops need warrant to search phones, say Ohio Supremes

First top-level US ruling on celly seizures

Police officers must obtain a search warrant before snooping through the contents of a suspect's cell phone, Ohio's supreme court ruled on Tuesday.

The issue of whether mobile phones fall under US Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures appears never to have been weighed by any other US state supreme court or the federal Supremes.

To Heck With Beck

Updated: Dec.17, 2009 11:10AM E.ST.

December 17, 2009

Mark Matheny

An article titled 'The White House War on Glenn Beck and Fox' was published in the November 9, 2009 issue of 'The New American' magazine, showing how Glenn Beck's "coverage of Van Jones on his Fox News television Show (and his radio show)" that brought Van Jones to resign from his position, as well as "his high profile and relentless efforts to break news like the Dunn story have drawn the fire of the Obama administration officials, who have labeled the Fox News Channel an 'opponent' and 'not really a news station. in recent weeks."

The article also stated how Glenn Beck "unearthed footage of Obama's White House Communications Director Anita Dunn at a High school graduation last spring praising Mao Tse-tung as one of her two 'favorite political philosophers'." The article also stated toward the end, "Beck's revelations about Dunn came more than a week after Dunn had declared an administration war on Fox News, a fact that Time  magazine took note of as early as October 8." In the Time  article Dunn stated  that Fox News was 'opinion journalism masquerading as news'.

The New American article seemed to paint Glenn Beck as a true Journalist out to save the Republic, while exposing the socialists and Leftists that seem to attract themselves like magnets to the Obama Crew. Carol Lanham sees through the facade of Glen Beck, however, and has written a response to the November 9 article. I recieved a copy of the text via email, and called Carol for permission to publish it. She said yes, and so here it is:

To the staff of theNew American---------
I was also upset with the article that soft peddled Glenn Beck which appeared in the New American. Let's not forget who signs Beck's paychecks, that being Rupert Murdoch who gave large sums of money to Hillary Clinton, and Murdoch is a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations who bragged that he would make money off the backs of conservatives while at the same time making money in the porn publishing 'business'.

 Beck also promotes a 'Constitutional Convention', a Fair Tax, and other schemes to undercut the return to Constitutional government. He has hijacked and undercut the legitimate patriot's movement and is steering and herding the movement to neutralize and destroy it. He mixes 90% truth with 10% arsenic and is more dangerous to freedom because he is more deceptive- I do believe one of  the past heads of the CIA stated that anyone who is anybody in the national media is CIA and let's not forget Operation Mockingbird.

 Beck covers for the 9/11 attack and insults and discredits those seeking the truth behind the real attackers who use it to further the Police State and the globalist agenda. Beck is media- how can he have time to do a TV show-  radio show- and write all those books? His handlers have made him and he marches to their orders- what is so sad is that those who should know better are marching along side this slithering snake and falling for the deception instead of exposing him.

Obama's Push for Copenhagen Deal Could Violate Constitution, Critics Say

Updated December 16, 2009

President Barack Obama walks along the Colonnade at the White House in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2009. (AP)

President Obama's mission to save the planet from global warming could end up trampling on the U.S. Constitution, critics say.

When Obama arrives in Copenhagen Friday, he is hoping to cut a deal on a new global-warming agreement. Even though the conference is not likely to produce a legally binding deal, critics say if the president signs an international climate treaty pledging reductions in carbon emissions, he will violate the Constitution.

"President Obama cannot bind the American people to job killing international agreements on climate change without the advice and consent of the United States Senate," former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich wrote Wednesday at the conservative Web site Human Events.

The Constitution states that the president cannot sign treaties without the approval of two-thirds of the Senate.

But with climate change legislation stuck in the Senate after the House passed its version earlier this year, the White House is flirting with the possibility of taking action without Congress.

SARAH PALIN: Another Stooge
By Al Cronkrite

On December 1st, Paul Craig Roberts wrote the following paragraphs:

"In less than one year, President Obama has betrayed all of his supporters and broken all of his promises. He is the total captive of the oligarchy of the ruling interest groups. Unless he is saved by an orchestrated 9/11-type event, Obama is a one-term president. Indeed, the collapsing economy will doom him regardless of a ‘terrorist event.’"

"The Republicans are grooming Palin. Our first female president, following our first black president, will complete the transition to an American police state by arresting critics and protesters of Washington’s immoral foreign and domestic policies, and she will complete the destruction of America’s reputation abroad."

Sarah Palin and her family are plagued with common domestic problems; she is attractive, articulate, self controlled and resolute. The domestic problems identify her with "common folk" and the personal attributes sustain her on the political stage. The media is in the process of creating wide spread sympathy for Sarah Palin by taunting her unmercifully. Media cooperation, sympathy, hatred for President Obama, and the votes of millions of Evangelical Christians could boost this determined neophyte into the Oval Office.

Hoosier icon and journalism insider, Dan Thomasson, after hearing her speak before critics at the Washington Gridiron Club wrote "…she came to town the other night and proved once again what has been undeniable for some time: She has more political sex appeal than anyone on the scene with the exception of Barack Obama".

The grooming process involves mysterious financial support that provides talented writers, swift publication of her book, airplanes, and news coverage. Acceptance of these enabling gifts indicates a willingness to comply with the requests of the enablers. The strings that control Sarah Palin would be just as effective as the strings that controlled George W. Bush, Barak Obama, and several previous Presidents.

The sudden stroke of good luck that strikes selected presidential candidates must come as a welcome surprise – all of a sudden doors that remain closed to others are flung open and you are beckoned in.

Momentum to drive her anticipated elevation may come from the enervating image of Barak Obama who was in turn elected by the unpopular actions of George W. Bush.

United States political candidates are helped by a pleasing appearance, cogent prolixity, flexibility, and a compliant disposition. Campaign promises are meaningless. Because they are beholden to forces higher than themselves United States presidents regularly break their oaths and vows. Their behavior is choreographed by hidden oligarchs who are malevolent in their requirements for conformity.

The behavior and violent deaths of the Kennedy brothers set an example for the future of defiance. On the Rockwell page Edward Curtin reviewed a new book by James Douglass, "JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters" (Orbis Books, 2008). Curtin believes the Douglass book is "one of the best books ever written on the Kennedy assassination". Douglas maintains Kennedy was killed because he defied the warmongering of the military industrial complex and stubbornly pursued peace. War is an instrument used by the power structure to disrupt the social order, transfer wealth, and shield the progress of tyranny.

Successful evil is always heavily flavored with righteousness. Palin is seen as an Evangelical Christian who attends church, seeks the prayers of its members, opts to give birth to a retarded child and is solicitous of the father of her illegitimate grandchild. In our theologically starved Christian milieu those characteristics are sufficient evidence of Christian wisdom. With a sincere belief that conversion qualifies a person for leadership, Christian associations of any kind are bonanzas for millions of starved American congregants.

Our family is planning a trip over the Christmas holiday and as we prepare for the personal intrusion of the airport TSA personal I find my attitude is calmer than it was the last time we flew. Gradualism allows humans to become quietly compliant.

If a 1920s Christian was suddenly thrust into our contemporary society the shock would be devastating. Though WWI had debased the moral fiber of the nation (all wars do that) and women had begun to flaunt themselves there was a steady willingness to acknowledge immorality. Businesses were closed on Sunday. There was no income tax. There was no department of children and families. Policemen were generally feared by gangsters and respected by citizens. Mothers kept house and had children while fathers earned a living. Schools taught reading, writing, and arithmetic and were established and controlled in neighborhoods. Hunting and fishing did not require a license. There were no traffic jams. Homosexuals and other sexual deviants were scorned but tolerated. Pregnancy out of wedlock was disgraceful and illegitimate children were usually adopted. Some women worked, some women voted, some women were feminists but leadership in government, business, and academia was predominantly male. Prohibition created a scenario similar to the Drug War but the nation was smaller, less needless laws were being enforced and our jails were not bursting at the seams. (Four hundred and thirty-five supercilious congresspersons, many of dubious integrity, going on junkets, wasting time on investigations and entangling the nation with new laws is a serious problem by itself – but that is another subject.)

The 1920s was far different than the Twenty First Century. Social debasement has come slowly. Two centuries ago St. Paul’s Biblical opinion on women was respected and women were not set into leadership positions over men. Biblical moral standards are interconnected when one standard is violated other standards are effected. First Suffrage and then Feminism tore at the fabric of the family. The family is the basic Biblical governmental unit and the prime foundational structure for the entire creation

Like the intrusion of the TSA at our airports we have become inured to the devastating results of feminism. As Sarah Palin is groomed for the Presidency, the Biblical wisdom of keeping women in the home is being defied. She and her supporters are thumbing their nose at the Creator in the name of Christianity. The disaster of Dispensationalism has robbed God’s people of righteousness by abolishing His criterion for behavior through obedience to His Law. When Christians live without reference to God’s Law sinful conciliations abound.

Two party politics in the United States is a pragmatic game that involves constant compromise. Since compromise is death to God’s legal standards it is difficult to find a righteous politician. Palin is a politician. Not only has she exalted herself into contention for the Presidency but she has breached the proper standards of the religion she professes. That she is being touted as a viable candidate reflects a low esteem for the office itself.

The promotion of Sarah Palin is following a propaganda pattern set up by the media. A Black hero is followed by a Female hero who is succeeded by a bumbling White man. I am not sure what is meant by the term "political sex appeal" but Palin appears to be a pseudo-Christian woman who is falling into the politically correct role of stooge for those who rule America.

Wisdom, discernment and a firm grasp of the need for obedience to God’s Law are indispensible requirements for leaders.

Is your bank in trouble? More report bad loans

By Bill Dedman

Investigative reporter

updated 2 hours, 8 minutes ago

The number of banks with risky levels of bad loans continues to climb rapidly, particularly in the West and Southeast, according to federal data analyzed by and the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University in Washington.

A total of 369 banks had high “troubled asset ratios” at the end of September, up from 297 in June, an increase of one-fourth, according to the analysis. A high ratio means a bank had more troubled loans than money set aside to cover potential losses.

The states with the heaviest concentrations of banks with high levels of bad loans are Nevada, Washington, Florida, Arizona, Georgia, Oregon and Utah.

Here are four ways you can check the health of any bank or credit union in the United States:

  • Check the report card for any bank on the updated BankTracker site from American University.

  • You can also look up any credit union.

THE DEBT LIMIT: Enough is Enough

December 14, 2009


Fact Sheet #48
Why the Debt and the Debt Limit Matter

$12,000,000,000,000: The total federal debt has reached a whopping $12 trillion. About $7.6 trillion is debt held by the public, which has been borrowed from citizens and foreign countries, and $4.4 trillion is debt held by the government, which has been borrowed primarily from the Social Security trust fund.

Debt Is Earning Interest That Taxpayers Must Pay: Public debt holders are paid annual interest from the federal budget, which must be paid with taxpayer dollars. In 2009 interest payments amounted to $209 billion.

Too Much Debt Will Slow the Economy: Government borrowing reduces resources available for private investment, leading to lower productivity, wages, and economic growth.

Only Getting Worse: The recession and excessive spending have caused the debt held by the public to grow sharply to 56% of the economy, topping the historical average of 36%. To make matters worse, entitlement programs will double in size over the next few decades and cause the national debt to reach 320% of the economy.

Raising the Debt Limit: Congress will vote to determine the limit for the federal debt, which currently stands at $12.1 trillion. Since the national debt has hit $12 trillion, Congress plans to raise the debt limit.

Congress Plans to Quietly Raise the Debt Limit

Congress Hopes Americans and Credit Markets Don't Notice: To avoid scrutiny, congressional leadership will likely try to sneak the debt limit increase into a "must-pass" measure, such as the defense appropriations bill. Doing so would limit necessary debate on the debt in the hopes that taxpayers and creditors would not respond.

Increase Would Be Largest in History: Because this will be a difficult vote, the majority's leadership has suggested raising the limit enough to avoid another vote on the debt limit before the November 2010 elections. The estimated $1.8 trillion increase would be the single-greatest increase of the debt limit in history.

Time to Take the Debt Seriously

In Order to Reign in the Debt, Tackle Entitlements: To avoid perpetual trillion-dollar debt limit increases, Members of Congress should finally address the long-term budget problems posed by Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Create a Bipartisan Commission: A growing number in Congress--led by Senators Kent Conrad (D-ND) and Judd Gregg (R-NH) and Representatives Frank Wolf (R-VA) and Jim Cooper (D-TN)--want to tie a vote on the debt limit to the creation of a bipartisan commission that would recommend real reforms to get the nation's debt under control.

A Debt Commission Would Be a Step in the Right Direction: A commission would make it politically and procedurally possible for Congress to move on such a difficult issue. An effective commission would put entitlement spending on long-term budgets, which would prevent the debt from growing on autopilot. It would also make Congress think about the long-term obligations posed by entitlements, which now equal $44 trillion.

If Not Now, When?: Failure to act now will guarantee that future Congresses will have to raise the debt limit many more times and that future generations will pay the price. Congress must prove it is up to the task by debating the issue on its own merit and taking this hard vote without the subterfuge of burying it in "must-pass" legislation.

Republicans Plan to Form Counter-Delegation at Climate Conference

A GOP counter-delegation is forming to undermine the Obama administration's work on an international climate change agreement in Copenhagen, warning that the president is poised to make commitments he can't keep and drawing heightened attention to controversial leaked e-mails.

A GOP counter-delegation is forming to undermine the Obama administration's work on an international climate change agreement in Copenhagen, warning that the president is poised to make commitments he can't keep and drawing heightened attention to controversial leaked e-mails.

At least a half-dozen Republican senators and representatives are planning to head to Denmark next week, as part of the overall U.S. congressional delegation, which includes plenty of Democrats as well.

But the Republicans have a markedly different agenda.

"Truth squad," is how Sen. Jim Inhofe spokesman Matt Dempsey described the GOP team. He called the Democratic visitors to the conference the "doom squad."

The Oklahoma Republican and ardent global warming skeptic plans to head to Denmark along with Sens. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and John Barrasso of Wyoming. On the House side, Reps. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, Joe Barton of Texas and Darrell Issa of California are tentatively planning to attend.
