There is still time to avoid a recession - a recession being technically defined as two quarters of negative economic growth.   What needs to be done, and can be done in the next 60 days, follows.

First, it is important to realize the present economic slowdown was caused by a series of mistakes by the Federal Reserve, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the administration, and Congress.

Many of our government policymakers and politicians still insist it was the other guy's fault and pretend that taking money from one group of taxpayers and giving it to another (a k a, a "stimulus package") will somehow miraculously revive the economy.

The administration is guilty of having both proposed and acquiesced to spending that resulted in more costs than benefits to the economy, which has slowed growth. Even though those in the administration cannot suddenly reverse much of the wasteful spending on their own, they can do several things by presidential directive - Executive Orders issued by President Bush -- to make things better immediately.

Back in late September 2006 in The Partial Assassination of Castro, I presented evidence that Castro had probably been poisoned with a tasteless odorless poison called superwarfarin, had hemorrhaged profusely for a prolonged period, and had been brain damaged in the process.

He was living in a medical version of prison, unable to talk to the outside world lest he embarrass himself, Cuba and the cause of Communism.  Since then further evidence has supported that conclusion.

Even if Fidel Castro was brain damaged, that did not stop his brother and associates from creating a façade that Fidel was still in charge. In late March of 2006, Raul Castro and his cadre made the decision to engage in a disinformation campaign to make it look like Fidel was still running things.

The Castro charade is like something out of weekend at Bernie's - except that Fidel wouldn't die.

When Nicolas Sarkozy was running for president of France last May, I proclaimed him to be "Europe's best hope." Mr. Sarkozy won the votes of 53 percent of the record 85 percent of the French electorate that came out to vote in the presidential elections.

The French approved of his tough rhetoric against the Islamist "thugs" (his word, voyous) who control many no-go neighborhoods in the country, where more than 10 percent of the population already adheres to the Moslem faith.

During the presidential campaign his Socialist opponent, Ségolène Royal, warned that a Sarkozy victory would lead to violence in the Moslem neighborhoods. The French refused to be intimidated into appeasement and rose to the occasion. French men and women who normally do not vote because they distrust politics turned out en masse to elect "Sarko."

The "thugs" have since begun to ambush police and no longer refrain from shooting at officers, but the Sarkozy government had not clamped down on them.  Yet that is only the beginning of the coming Sarkozy nightmare.

I have a friend who had polio as a young boy. Yet when I first met him he had become a strong, confident, mischievous, and accomplished high school water polo player on the #2 water polo team in Northern California.

He limped, and if you looked you could see his atrophied shin - but that wasn't what you noticed about him. What you noticed about him was everything else.

What I didn't see - because it was before I knew him - was that in his earlier years he had to be helped to the pool, that he struggled and worked like crazy to overcome his disability - which he did. He was a national All American, and went on to play on a competitive NCAA university team; and he has made a happy and successful life for himself since.

He could have focused most of his attention on what was wrong, on the pain, on whose fault it was, and how unfair it was. But instead he chose to focus on what he could do to improve his situation; he chose to make the best out of his circumstances.

That is a heroic approach to life.

There is a big difference between this view, and today's culturally therapeutic view of life. In many ways this difference defines a fundamental philosophical contrast between modern day conservatives and liberals.

Last month, the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams called for the introduction of Moslem Sharia law into the British legal system.  If Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400) were alive today yet speaking his medieval English, he might have written one of his Canterbury Tales about Archbishop Williams and England.

[The Council for National Policy is America's premier group of conservative leaders. At its meeting this weekend, I have been asked to address CNP members, explaining in five minutes why Liberal Democrats seem incapable of even wanting to defend our country.  This is what I will say.]

A good place to start understanding why Democrats cannot defend America is the Amazon jungle.  There is a tribe in the Amazon called the Yanomamo.  When a Yanomamo woman gives birth, she tearfully proclaims her child to be ugly.

In a loud mortified lament that the entire tribe can hear, she asks why the gods have cursed her with such a pathetically repulsive infant. She does this in order to ward off the envious black magic of the Evil Eye, the Mal Ojo, that would be directed at her by her fellow tribespeople if they thought she was happy and her baby was beautiful.

So she is afraid to be happy, because of the fear of being envied by her fellow villagers.

From now on, whenever you think of a Liberal Democrat, I want you to think of that Yanomamo woman in the Amazon.  For it is that primitive jungle fear of being envied that makes a Liberal.

This week's HFR focuses on the Obamarama - or as Jack Kelly describes him, the guy in an empty suit with a glass jaw. 

Naturally, we're all dancing on the bar tables over Hillary's winning Texas and Ohio, ensuring a vicious catfight between her and Obambi from now ‘till Labor Day.  What fun.

It turns out, though, that Hillary has a woman on her side who is turning out to be one of her campaign's greatest assets, who just may ensure the Hildebeast's victory over Obambi and her nomination.  Nope, not Gloria Steinem nor Barbra Streisand nor Halle Berry.  I refer, of course, to...

...On the international scene, the HFR reports that Jews around the world rioted in violent protest over a British researcher's claims that Moses, the founder of the Jewish religion, was high on psychedelic drugs and hallucinated that he spoke to God on Mount Sinai.

That was the title of a very funny book P. J. O'Rourke wrote a few years ago about Saddam Hussein's Iraq.  And it's very apt advice right now for Colombia's Alvaro Uribe.

You knew that Venezuela's coke-head clown dictator was going to find a pretext for war with Colombia a month ago in Wars On The Way.  The Colombian Army's take-out of Chavez's FARC buddy Raul Reyes, a murderous Marxist midget (he was barely over five feet tall) last Saturday (3/01) provided it.

Now let's hope Uribe accepts Chavez's offer of war.  For if he does, it's bye-bye, Hugo.

Never before has a presidential nomination been determined by a do over.  This year there may be two.  And they may not be enough to prevent a bloodbath at the Democrat convention in Denver in August.

Despite winning Rhode Island by 18 points, Ohio by 10 points, and Texas by 4 points, Ms. Clinton shaved only 12 delegates from Sen. Obama's lead, with 10 still to be allocated.  That lead is pretty narrow.  Sen. Obama has won 1,366 delegates in primaries and caucuses to date, compared to 1,222 for Sen. Clinton. 

Mr. Obama needs 659 delegates more to obtain the 2,025 needed to win the nomination. Sen. Clinton needs 803.  But only 611 delegates are left to be won in the remaining primaries and caucuses, 158 of them in Pennsylvania's primary April 22.  That means the nominee will be picked by the 795 "superdelegates," who have been elected by nobody.

It also means the primaries in Michigan and Florida are going to have to be held again.

Over a year ago, Congress passed a law to spend over $7 billion to build a fence to secure our Mexican border.

On February 22, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced at a news conference that a high-tech "virtual fence" project on part of the U.S. border with Mexico was finally ready for service.

The so-called Project 28 virtual fence was built near Nogales, Ariz. The $20 million project of sensor towers and advanced mobile communications was supposed to be ready by mid-2007, but was delayed by software problems.  So Mr. Chertoff's announcement was good news.

But only five days later on February 27, the media reported that the Bush administration has scaled back plans to quickly build a virtual fence along the U.S.-Mexico border, delaying completion of that first 28-mile phase by at least three years and shifting away from a network of tower-mounted sensors and surveillance gear.

Prepare yourself for this one - maybe with a Stoli martini or two. 

Back in the days of the Soviet Union, the Soviet Red Army had an official choir composed of male soldiers and musicians.  It still exists.  The Red Army Choir performs throughout Russia to this day.

Now consider the Finnish rock band called The Leningrad Cowboys.  A little while ago, they held a concert in Russia, in which - to the screaming applause of Russkie teen-agers - they got the Red Army Choir to join them on stage for a performance of "Sweet Home Alabama."  In English.  You couldn't make this up.

We're talking seriously off the wall here.  Better have that Stoli ready when you watch it:

We start off this week's HFR with a marvelous confirmation that Yes, Virginia, Hollywood really is that stupid and shallow...

Next up is the exhilarating photo flap over Hussein Obambi's looking like a Moslem girlie-man in drag.

Then the HFR announces that its Hero of the Week award goes to General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz, who had the courage to publicly state that "global warming is a total crock" of fecal material...

The HFR further announces the impending death of North Korea...

And lastly, there appeared this week two astonishingly hopeful signs of moderation in Islam.

In her tribute to Bill Buckley, Mona Charen lauded not only what he had accomplished - a "profoundly consequential life" - but what he was as a human being:  "by universal acclimation, the most gracious man on the planet."

"It was always Bill," she observed, "who rushed to get a chair for the person left standing" at a meeting.  "Always Bill who reached to fill your glass" of water.  "Always Bill who volunteered to give you a lift wherever you were going, insisting it was on his way."

With his usual impeccable timing, Bill Buckley chose to leave us at just the opportune time to contrast the gracious humanity of the founder of America's conservative movement with the personality of the man claiming conservatives should support his nomination for President of the United States.

The Democrat Party and its candidates, Mrs. Bill Clinton and Hussein Obambi, have the neurosis possessed by all liberals - Infantilizomania, the obsessive compulsion to treat adults as children.

The presumptive candidate of the Republican Party has a different type of neurosis - Jerkomania, the obsessive compulsion to be a jerk.
The only way for McCain to overcome this is for conservatives, when they think of him, to think of Cordell Hull.

Turkey Invades Northern Iraq blared headlines around the world last weekend (2/23-24).  Thousands of Turkish troops had crossed several miles into Iraq to "root out" PKK Kurdish guerrillas from their "mountain strongholds."

Here is a map of the Turkey-Iraq border.  It runs west-to-east or left-to-right from Syria (the triangle that Highway 6 runs through is Syria) to Iran.  [See map in main article.]

Note the Turkish town of Cukurca.  This is the Turkish Army's staging point, where the invasion was launched, and from where, as CNN announced yesterday (2/27), Turkey Sends More Troops Into Iraq.  The farthest penetration of Turkish troops has been about 24 kilometers or 15 miles into Iraq in the area of the Iraqi village of Al Amadiyah.

Anyone who sees this map and knows where the PKK is based is instantly LOL - laughing out loud.  The PKK "stronghold" is in the Qandil mountains where Turkey, Iraq, and Iran come together - almost 100 miles by road or jeep track from Cukurca.

This is a phony invasion.  Check out this story in the Washington Post, whose eyewitness reporter states the Turkish troops can "go no farther" than 15 miles into Iraq, that the Turkish military has "targeted Kurdish civilians in villages that are often far from the bases of the [PKK] guerrilla group," and quotes an Iraqi Kurdish soldier:  The Turks "say there are PKK in this area, but actually the PKK are very far from here."

Why would the Turkish Army stage a Potemkin invasion of Iraq and pretend to attack the PKK?   To ramp up anti-Kurdish Turkish jingoistic nationalism while preserving the business deal the Turkish Army has with the PKK to run drugs.

You probably would have heard of Nadhmi Auchi by now if Sen. Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. were a Republican.

A British citizen of Iraqi descent, Mr. Auchi, 70, is a billionaire, the 279th richest man in the world, according to a Forbes magazine survey last year.

A great deal of Mr. Auchi's money was made doing business with the regime of Saddam Hussein, much of it under the table.  In 1987, Mr. Auchi helped French and Italian firms win a huge oil pipeline contract in Iraq, chiefly by paying off Iraqi officials, according to testimony given by an Italian banker to prosecutors in Milan. 

Mr. Auchi is also a business partner of Syrian-born businessman Antoin "Tony" Rezko, who has supported Mr. Obama financially since his first run for the Illinois state senate in 1996.
