Some Potentially VERY Good Economic News

Here's some potentially VERY good economic news that was lost amid the weekend news flurry.  Those with "skin in the game," and who likely possess the best perspective, are betting heavily on an upturn, as highlighted by Friday's Wall Street Journal:

Corporate insiders are buying stock in their own companies at a pact not seen in years, a sign they are betting on a rebound after a coronavirus-induced rout.  More than 2,800 executives and directors have purchased nearly $1.19 billion in company stock since the beginning of March.  That's the third-highest level on both an individual and dollar basis since 1988, according to the Washington Service, which provides data analytics about trading activity by insiders."

Here's why that's important:

Because insiders typically know the…[more]

Gitmo Extended Stay America Suites in Colorado? Hell No! Print
By Michelle Malkin
Thursday, October 08 2015
What part of 'Leave us the hell alone!' don't they understand?

Liberal readers have scoffed at my repeated warnings about the dangerous prospect of an enemy combatant dump on American soil. Over the years, I've flagged the Obama administration's scouting forays in Illinois, Kansas and South Carolina. Now, the White House is considering my adopted home, Colorado, as the new digs for the dregs of Gitmo.

If there was ever a time for Coloradans of all political stripes to unite under the "Not in My Backyard" banner, this is it.

The feds have already polluted our waters in the name of protecting us. Nobody at the EPA has paid any price for the disastrous Gold King Mine spill that turned the Animas River brighter than a Halloween pumpkin. The last thing we need is an influx of feckless Obama bureaucrats flooding our state's correctional facilities with jihadists in orange jumpsuits (in the name of national security, of course).

What part of "Leave us the hell alone!" don't they understand?

On Friday, White House officials disclosed to the press that a U.S. Defense Department fishing expedition will take place over the next two weeks at both state and federal prisons here in the Rocky Mountain State.

One of the potential Gitmo Extended Stay America sites is a medium-security area of supermax -- home of convicted 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, shoe bomber Richard Reid, 1993 World Trade Center plotter Ramzi Yousef, millennium bomb plotter Ahmed Ressam, "dirty bomb" plotter Jose Padilla and 1998 African U.S. embassy bomb plotter Wadih el-Hage. President Obama has bragged repeatedly about his administration's ability to ensure public safety inside and outside any jihadist hotels in our own backyards.

But despite the supposedly strictest security measures imposed of them, the pre-existing stateside supermax terrorist population has caused numerous headaches from day one -- sending jailhouse letters to terror cell correspondents around the world; communicating by tapping on the pipes; organizing hunger strikes to force Bureau of Prisons officials to transfer them away from high-security detention; and suing successfully for the right to spread Islam behind bars to other inmates.

(That last victory came at the hands of shoe bomber Reid, himself a Muslim convert by an extremist imam he met in a British prison before his failed attempt to bring down American Airlines Flight 63 in 2001.)

Let's not forget that convicted WTC mastermind Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, aided by terrorists' little helper Lynne Stewart, smuggled coded messages of Islamic violence while behind bars to violent outside followers despite a judicial isolation order. After serving less than half of her 10-year sentence for aiding terrorism, Stewart walked free in January 2014 thanks to President Obama's "compassion" order. Amid persistent concerns that he could be similarly released, the 76-year-old Abdel-Rahman was reportedly transferred from Colorado's supermax to the Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina sometime in the last year for health reasons.

Most recently, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch was forced in August to order what reporters called "a near total clampdown" on another jailed Muslim menace because of the "high probability" that he would order a terrorist attack from his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan. Prosecutors have tied Muhanad Mahmoud Al-Farekh to al-Qaida terror plots in Pakistan and New York City.

Everywhere jihadists are housed in civilian prisons, trouble follows. In Australia, jihad militants financed and organized a massive escape plot inside the walls of its most secure supermax facility. Ringleader Bassam Hamzy, a devotee of Osama bin Laden, converted inmates to Islam in droves. The jailbreak scheme was busted, but Hamzy continues to make a mockery of the prison -- from which he ran a major drug ring and masterminded a kidnapping on a cellphone smuggled into the facility.

If President Obama is so confident he can contain the jihad virus and prevent homicidal soldiers of Allah from wreaking more havoc in the U.S. prison system, I suggest importing the bottom-of-the-barrel Gitmo goons to an institution near one of the commander in chief's favorite vacation spots in Martha's Vineyard or Kailua.

Or perhaps as a neighboring annex of his presidential library on the south side of Chicago. Legacy!
