-Courtesy of the Associated Press- Two Iraqis living in Kentucky have been arrested on charges that they tried to send sniper rifles, stinger missiles and money to Al Qaeda operatives in their home country, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday.
Thirty-year-old Alwan and 23-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, who both have lived in Bowling Green since 2009, were charged in a 23-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury Thursday. Neither is charged with plotting attacks within the United States, and authorities say their weapons and money didn’t make it to Iraq because of a tightly controlled undercover investigation.

Alwan is charged with conspiracy to kill a United States national, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to terrorists. Hammadi is charged with attempting to provide material support to terrorists and knowingly transferring, possession or exporting a device designed or intended to launch or guide a rocket or missile.

The FBI said Alwan told an informant that he took part in insurgent attacks on U.S. troops and had “f—ked up” Hummers and targeted Bradley fighting vehicles.

The indictment and criminal complaints were unsealed Tuesday after the pair made their initial appearances in federal court in Louisville. Both men entered pleas of not guilty and were remanded to federal custody.

Hammadi’s court-appointed attorney, James Earhart of Louisville, said he doesn’t know much about the case or his client beyond what is in the criminal complaint.

“I haven’t had a chance to sit down and talk with him yet,” Earhart told The Associated Press on Tuesday afternoon.

Federal Public Defender Scott Wendelsdorf, who represents Alwan, declined comment.

The FBI said in criminal complaints that the probe started in September 2009, with a confidential source eventually meeting with Alwan in August 2010 and Hammadi in January.

FBI Director Robert Mueller said in February that his agency was taking a fresh look at Iraqi nationals in the U.S. who had ties to al Qaeda’s offshoot in Iraq. The group had not previously been considered a threat in the U.S.

Asked about the case, Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd said Tuesday: “These are the only two persons that have been charged in this case. The investigation is continuing. If any of our investigations or intelligence suggests others pose a threat, we will actively pursue those investigative leads.”

According to the criminal complaints, Alwan told the informant he was involved in insurgent attacks from 2003 until 2006, including using improvised explosive devices and sniper rifles to target U.S. troops. Alwan is accused of drawing diagrams of four types of IEDs for the informant.

The FBI said it identified fingerprints belonging to Alwan on a component of an unexploded IED that was recovered by U.S. forces in Iraq.

The criminal complaints say that in January, Alwan recruited Hammadi to assist him, describing the younger Iraqi to the informant as a relative of his whose work as an insurgent in Iraq was well known. Later that month, Alwan and Hammadi allegedly delivered money to a tractor-trailer, believing the money would ultimately be shipped to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

In February, authorities say the two men helped in the delivery of additional weapons, including sniper rifles and inert C4 plastic explosives, to a tractor-trailer believing that these items would be shipped to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

A month later, Alwan and Hammadi are accused of picking up two inert Stinger missiles from the storage facility and delivering them to a tractor-trailer believing these items would be shipped to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Less than a year after the St. Louis Cardinals drafted him in the first round, third baseman Zack Cox made his Class AA debut Wednesday night in Springfield.

Cox, batting fifth, singled twice, was hit by a pitch, and walked. He contributed two runs in the Springfield Cardinals’ 12-6 victory at Hammons Field.

“But I’m nervous before every game I play,” Cox told S-Cards beat writer Kary Booher for this morning’s Springfield News-Leader. “When I go out there, it all goes away.”

Cox, who turned 22 earlier this month, is on the Cardinals’ 40-man roster, a condition of his signing for a total package of $3.2 million. The lefthanded-hitting infielder had a grand total of 15 at-bats with an affiliate before starting this season, his first full season as a pro, in High-A Palm Beach. The Cardinals felt that Cox’s bat was ready for Double-A and the Texas League. They decided to play conservative, though, and start him at the pitcher-friendly Florida State League before slingshotting to the S-Cards.

After a micro slow start, Cox his .335/.380/.439 in 45 games with the PB-Cards. Near the end of his stay in Jupiter, Fla., Cox had a 15-game hitting streak, the longest by a Cardinals farmhand so far this season, and his .335 average was the highest in the organization.

Cox had three homers and 11 total extra-base hits in 164 at-bats with Palm Beach. His power numbers figure to bloom with the promotion. Florida State League teams play mostly at spring training facilities, which come complete with big-league dimensions. Throw in the sometimes tricky conditions for hitting and the FSL annually has among the most-suppressed offensive numbers in the minors.

The Texas League does not have such, um, restraints.

In the FSL, there are four players with more than 10 homers. In the Texas League, there are eight, and three of them play for San Antonio.

Just in case any of you decided to heed my advice and sell put options on CIGX as I discussed in an earlier post, I wanted to go back and give an update on this trade as it stands going into the Memorial Day holiday.

As I stated previously, I sold put options which expire the third Friday of June on the stock symbol CIGX with a strike price of $4.00 and the stock price at the time was just above $4.00.

For every 10 options that you could have sold, you would have made $350.00 less commissions. To put on this trade, you would have to have $4,000.00 in cash in your stock account for every 10 options. You would also have to have option trading privileges of course through your broker.

This stock has been outstanding this week as it has traded up to $5.00 on Friday, which is nearly a 20% increase in share price since Monday. The value of the sold put option has decreased from the $0.35 per share to a current bid of $0.25 and ask of $0.30. We could close this transaction by buying back the 20 options we sold and pocket $100.00, if we so chose to.

Now, for the option to end up hurting us it would have to close down over $1.00 between now and June 17, which is only 14 trading days away. I believe this stock has even more room to the upside, so our trade looks solid. If it can bust through prior resistance at $5.00, it may experience a huge move up…making us wish we would have purchased the stock outright instead of selling puts.

A quick check of after hours trades shows the stock trading north of $5.00 a share at $5.03. If the stock continues to climb in the next few days, we may close out our position for a quick gain instead of waiting for the June 17 option expiration.

We will scour the market for another potential put sell over the weekend and let you know what we come up with.

As always, our commentary is just for educational purposes. We may or may not have funds invested in the stocks profiled (in the case of CIGX we do). You own your own investments, so please do your own due diligence before making any transactions. Only you know what your risk tolerance is and whether or not a stock fits your trading style. We are not responsible for any losses you may incur by following our ideas.

I have read numerous investing books over the years, and I try to implement as many of the strategies as possible from those books. I have read several books on trading stock market options and one of the most enlightening concepts is “the creation of money out of thin air”.

With this article, I am going to dive into this concept because most people are unaware that this is even possible.

Are there risks with this strategy?

Of course…as there are risks with all types of investments.

If you speak to someone that gives investment advice, they will tell you all about the pitfalls of clients who ordered them to purchase options who then went on to lose a ton of money. Most money managers do not endorse trading in options.

What makes options so difficult to invest in that money managers do not like investing in them? Statistics show that the large majority of individuals who buy options, lose money (some studies place this percentage at 80% or more).

Why do I think options trading is such a good strategy if the statistics are so heavily against the buyers?

The reason is because the people who are losing money in the options games are the ones buying options…the ones making a killing are the individuals selling options.

If 80% of buyers are losing money, that also means that 80% of option sellers are making money.

So, the game we like to play in regards to options is the selling of options.

On Monday May 23, 2011 I put in an order to sell 20 put options at a price of $4 on CIGX. I pocketed $675 dollars immediately from this transaction. I also had to tie up $8,000 in capital to cover the possible purchase of 2,000 shares of CIGX stock at $4.00 a share. CIGX was/is currently trading at $4.60. A quick glance at the stock chart for CIGX shows it in a recent uptrend. Over the past 3 months, it has risen from $1.75 to $5.00 where it traded down to around $3.00 near tax day. From that point onward it has been in a nice healthy uptrend. The main concept with this transaction is I would not mind owning CIGX stock at $4.00 a share. If you feel $4.00 is not a good price for CIGX stock, then you should not do this transaction.

So, in a nutshell the stock chart looks strong.

Now that the transaction is complete, what are the possible outcomes?
1. The stock stays above $4.00 and I get to keep the $675.00 from the put sell.
2. The stock goes below $4.00 and I have to purchase 2000 shares (ie 20 options = 2000 shares) at $4.00 even if the stock goes all the way to $0.00. (so there is a risk)

What do I do if the stock goes to $3.80 and I am forced to buy it at $4.00? I can do one of three things which are outlined below.
1. Take my new shares and sell a call option on it to earn additional money. (by selling a call I give someone the right to purchase my shares at a certain price for a certain time range)
2. I can do nothing and sit on my shares (this is what I won’t do)
3. I can sell the shares at a loss.

So, if I decide to do option 3 above, how much money will I lose if the stock price is at $3.80? I will lose $0.20 on the sell of stock, however I have made $0.35 a share on the original put sale.

I have actually made money on the overall transaction of $0.15 a share.

Thus, the beauty of the put sale. The real power of a put sale is when you pick out a stock you really would like to own in the near future for long term growth, but you aren’t in a hurry to buy the stock. If XYZ stock is trading at $20 a share and you feel it is a great buy at this price, then if you could buy it at $17.50 that should be even better for you.

So what I suggest you to do is to sell a put option on XYZ stock with a strike price of $17.50. You pocket the monies for the put transaction and if the stock does go below $17.50, you buy your shares. If the stock never goes below $17.50, you can re-sale another option the following month and make additional money.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to leave a comment or question in the comment box. You can also send an email or leave your email address in the comment box with your question and we will get back to you.

Hope you enjoy this new concept.

The “Macho Man” Randy Savage, a professional wrestler who became a fan favorite thanks to his outlandish outfits and trademark catchphrase, died Friday in a car wreck, as first reported by TMZ.

Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth

The 58-year-old Savage — whose legal name was Randy Mario Poffo — reportedly suffered a heart attack while driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler in Tampa, Fla., and careened across lanes of oncoming traffic before colliding head-on with a tree. He died later at a local hospital.

Savage’s wife Lynn, who was riding in the passenger seat, escaped with only minor injuries. Both passengers were wearing seatbelts and the police do not believe alcohol was a factor.

The World Wrestling Federation favorite from Ohio burst onto the scene in 1985 and quickly drew attention with his flamboyant outfits and “ooh yeah!” catchphrase. His marriage to Elizabeth Hulette, Ms. Elizabeth to fans, was one of the first high-profile wrestler/valet relationships. They divorced in 1992. Savage remarried last year.

He won two WWF championships in his career. His match against Ricky Steamboat in 1987′s Wrestlemania III is considered one of the best WWF bouts ever. Savage won the title late that year, setting the stage for memorable battles with Hulk Hogan, who would eventually dethrone him as champion.

World Wrestling Entertainment released an official statement on Friday afternoon.

“WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of one of the greatest Superstars of his time, Randy Poffo, aka Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

One of Macho Man’s biggest rivals was Hulk Hogan. Hogan said he and Savage had just started talking again after 10 years.

“He had so much life in his eyes & in his spirit, I just pray that he’s happy and in a better place and we miss him,” Hogan wrote.

Savage also appeared in memorable ads for Slim Jim and played a wrestler in the 2002 hit film “Spider-Man.”

For those old school followers of wrestling, the Mach Man got his start wrestling in the ICW. He even occasionally made appearances around the local area in central Kentucky. I remember meeting him at our local National Guard Armory.

For those of you who didn’t know, “The Macho Man” was also a professional baseball player in the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds organizations. Randy hit .254 in his minor league career and he stole 21 bases and drove in 130 runs in 869 at bats. An injury forced him to teach himself to throw left handed to continue his baseball career.

The Macho Man’s father was also a professional wrestler and he went by the name The Miser and always wore a mask. His brother was also in the business and went by the name Leaping Lanny Poffo, while he was in the ICW but when we moved to the WWF he became better known as the Genius…always reciting poetry.

The Macho Man will definitely be missed…here’s to one of the greatest to ever lace up wrestling boots.

For some, it’s Judgment Day. For others, it’s party time.

A loosely organized Christian movement has spread the word around the globe that Jesus Christ will return to earth on Saturday to gather the faithful into heaven. While the Christian mainstream isn’t buying it, many other skeptics are milking it.

A Facebook page titled “Post rapture looting” offers this invitation: “When everyone is gone and god’s not looking, we need to pick up some sweet stereo equipment and maybe some new furniture for the mansion we’re going to squat in.” By Wednesday afternoon, more than 175,000 people indicated they would be “attending” the “public event.”

The prediction is also being mocked in the comic strip “Doonesbury” and has inspired “Rapture parties” to celebrate what hosts expect will be the failure of the world to come to an end.

In the Army town of Fayetteville, N.C., the local chapter of the American Humanist Association has turned the event into a two-day extravaganza, with a Saturday night party followed by a day-after concert.

“It’s not meant to be insulting, but come on,” said organizer Geri Weaver. “Christians are openly scoffing at this.”

The prediction originates with Harold Camping, an 89-year-old retired civil engineer from Oakland, Calif., who founded Family Radio Worldwide, an independent ministry that has broadcast his prediction around the world.

The Rapture — the belief that Christ will bring the faithful into paradise prior to a period of tribulation on earth that precedes the end of time — is a relatively new notion compared to Christianity itself, and most Christians don’t believe in it. And even believers rarely attempt to set a date for the event.

Camping’s prophecy comes from numerological calculations based on his reading of the Bible, and he says global events like the 1948 founding of Israel confirm his math.

He has been derided for an earlier apocalyptic prediction in 1994, but his followers say that merely referred to the end of “the church age,” a time when human beings in Christian churches could be saved. Now, they say, only those outside what they regard as irredeemably corrupt churches can expect to ascend to heaven.

Camping is not hedging this time: “Beyond the shadow of a doubt, May 21 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment,” he said in January.

Such predictions are nothing new, but Camping’s latest has been publicized with exceptional vigor — not just by Family Radio but through like-minded groups. They’ve spread the word using radio, satellite TV, daily website updates, billboards, subway ads, RV caravans hitting dozens of cities and missionaries scattered from Latin America to Asia.

“These kinds of prophecies are constantly going on at a low level, and every once in a while one of them gets traction,” said Richard Landes, a Boston University history professor who has studied such beliefs for more than 20 years.

The prediction has been publicized in almost every country, said Chris McCann, who works with eBible Fellowship, one of the groups spreading the message. “The only countries I don’t feel too good about are the `stans’ — you know, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, those countries in Central Asia,” he said.

Marie Exley, who left her home in Colorado last year to join Family Radio’s effort to publicize the message, just returned from a lengthy overseas trip that included stops in the Middle East. She said billboards have gone up in Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.

“I decided to spend the last few days with my immediate family and fellow believers,” Exley said. “Things started getting more risky in the Middle East when Judgment Day started making the news.”

McCann plans to spend Saturday with his family, reading the Bible and praying. His fellowship met for the last time on Monday.

“We had a final lunch and everyone said goodbye,” he said. “We don’t actually know who’s saved and who isn’t, but we won’t gather as a fellowship again.”

In Vietnam, the prophecy has led to unrest involving thousands of members of the Hmong ethnic minority who gathered near the border with Laos earlier this month to await the May 21 event. The government, which has a long history of mistrust with ethnic hill tribe groups like the Hmong, arrested an unidentified number of “extremists” and dispersed a crowd of about 5,000.

No such signs of turmoil are apparent in the U.S., though many mainstream Christians aren’t happy with the attention the prediction is getting. They reject the notion that a date for the end times can be calculated, if not the doctrine of the Rapture itself.

“When we engage in this kind of wild speculation, it’s irresponsible,” said the Rev. Daniel Akin, president of the Southeastern Baptist Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C. “It can do damage to naive believers who can be easily caught up and it runs the risk of causing the church to receive sort of a black eye.”

Pastors around the U.S. are planning Sunday sermons intended to illustrate the folly of trying to discern a date for the end of the world, but Akin couldn’t wait: He preached on the topic last Sunday.

“I believe Christ could come today. I believe he could choose not to come for 1,000 years,” he said. “That’s in his hands, not mine.”

Bart Centre, an atheist from New Hampshire, started Eternal Earth-bound Pets in 2009. He offers Rapture believers an insurance plan for those furry family members that won’t join them in heaven: 10-year pet care contracts, with Centre and his network of fellow non-believers taking responsibility for the animals after the Rapture. The fee — payable in advance, of course — was originally $110, but has gone to $135 since Camping’s prediction.

Centre says he has 258 clients under contract, and that business has picked up considerably this year. But he’s not worried about a sales slump if May 21 happens to disappoint believers.

“They never lose their faith. They’re never disappointed,” he said. “It reinforces their faith, strangely enough.”

President Obama “disrespected” Israel and threw it “under the bus” in a wide-ranging speech on the Middle East on Thursday, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney charged.

Romney strongly criticized Obama, who, in a speech at the State Department, called for Israel to return to its border lines as drawn before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

“President Obama has thrown Israel under the bus. He has disrespected Israel and undermined its ability to negotiate peace,” Romney said in a statement.

“He has also violated a first principle of American foreign policy, which is to stand firm by our friends,” added the former Massachusetts governor.

Romney led Republicans in criticizing the Obama speech, which touched on broader themes throughout the Middle East, including the popular movements for democratization, from Egypt to Yemen, during the first half of the year.

“President Obama has betrayed Israel and made a grievous mistake by suggesting borders of Israel go back to pre-1967 borders. This is an outrage to peace, sovereignty of Israel, and a stable Middle East,” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), a 2008 Republican presidential candidate who’s been a staunch supporter of Israel, said in a statement.

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), meanwhile, suggested Obama’s stance could represent “the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, another Republican presidential candidate, declined to comment on the Obama speech during an appearance on the Rush Limbaugh radio show this afternoon, explaining that he hadn’t yet been able to listen to the speech or digest its contents.

The political battle lines emerged quickly on Thursday afternoon after Obama’s speech, especially after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the president’s call for a return to 1967 borders.

Netanyahu will meet with Obama on Friday at the White House, and he’ll stay in Washington over the weekend before addressing the AIPAC conference Monday and a joint meeting of Congress on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was quick on the draw Thursday in voicing clear displeasure with President Barack Obama’s mideast policy speech.

“Israel appreciates President Obama’s commitment to peace,” the response began, curtly. “Israel believes that for peace to endure between Israelis and Palestinians, the viability of a Palestinian state cannot come at the expense of the viability of the one and only Jewish state.”

“That is why Prime Minister Netanyahu expects to hear a reaffirmation from President Obama of U.S. commitments made to Israel in 2004, which were overwhelmingly supported by both Houses of Congress.”

“Among other things,” Netanyahu reminded Obama, “those commitments relate to Israel not having to withdraw to the 1967 lines which are both indefensible and which would leave major Israeli population centers in Judea and Samaria beyond those lines.”

“Those commitments also ensure Israel’s well-being as a Jewish state by making clear that Palestinian refugees will settle in a future Palestinian state rather than in Israel.”

“Without a solution to the Palestinian refugee problem outside the borders of Israel, no territorial concession will bring peace.”
“Equally, the Palestinians, and not just the United States, must recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people, and any peace agreement with them must end all claims against Israel.”

“Prime Minister Netanyahu will make clear that the defense of Israel requires an Israeli military presence along the Jordan River.”

“Prime Minister Netanyahu will also express his disappointment over the Palestinian Authority’s decision to embrace Hamas, a terror organization committed to Israel’s destruction, as well as over Mahmoud Abbas’s recently expressed views which grossly distort history and make clear that Abbas seeks a Palestinian state in order to continue the conflict with Israel rather than end it.”
