  • Officers say no ‘stand-down order’ for Benghazi

    “The senior military officer who issued the instruction to “remain in place” and the detachment leader who received it said it was the right decision and has been widely mischaracterized. The order was to remain in Tripoli and protect some three dozen embassy personnel rather than fly to Benghazi some 600 miles away after all Americans there would have been evacuated. And the medic is credited with saving the life of an evacuee from the attacks.”

    This is all Clintonian wordplay and misdirection. I presume the US military has air, ground, and sea Special Forces teams positioned near hot spots and ready for emergency combat operations, especially on anniversaries of 9-11. The four trainers in Tripoli were brave men who wanted to help because the command structure wasn’t. They are irrelevant to any stand down order that actually matters here. The Obama administration waited until the attacks were over, so that it was too late to do anything. I have to wonder if the administration was taken by surprise by the second attack only.

    Here are questions the “investigation” and reporters are hiding while they debate “stand down” orders:
    2) WHO GAVE IT?
    3) IF NOT, WHY?
    7) IF NOT, WHY?

    I am fed up with incompetent “investigators” and spin-doctors.

    Chewbarkah to detective

    “When the word filtered down to Central America that young people could transform themselves through one magical train ride from impoverished street kids to American Dreamers, they came by the thousands.”

    Cashill presumes this “filtering down” occurred spontaneously.

    Or did Obama and his amnesty pals help spread the word, and engineer a crisis they could exploit?
    Getting evidence of that would change the whole situation, and might put Obama on the curb.

    Cashill omits reference to another major source of the situation. See material below from Diane Feinstein’s official website:

    “Jul 31 2008
    Senate Judiciary Committee Approves Feinstein Amendment to Protect Unaccompanied Alien Children

    Washington, DC – The Senate Judiciary Committee today approved legislation sponsored by U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that would reform the treatment of unaccompanied immigrant children who are in federal immigration custody.

    The bill was approved as part of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (S. 3061) authored by Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.). It passed the committee 17 to 2.

    Every year, more than 7,000 undocumented and unaccompanied children are apprehended.”

    Due to this, unaccompanied alien children are to be treated as refugees, cared for by HHS rather than DHS. Unless they have committed heinous crimes, they are to be granted asylum and admitted into the US, and they are to have “advocates” at public expense.

    But this has been the case since 2008. How did Central America suddenly get the word?

    A few shoe sightings doesn’t mean much. The kids wearing the shoes might not even know where they came from, much less what they mean. What interests me is how the current flood of “refugees” got underway.

  • APNewsBreak: Different attackers in Benghazi?

    Chewbarkah to don-o

    This article is more detailed and objective than I expected from AP. Falsehoods are likely entwined within it, but it reveals a steady evolution of the regime’s story, and the media’s movement away from slavish acceptance. To paraphrase, “Obama was running for reelection on a ‘saved GM, killed Bin Ladin, whipped the terrorists’ claim. After 5 days of massaging talking points post-Benghazi, Susan Rice emerged with a narrative that was er...’inaccurate’. Mean Republicans accused the administration of twisting the facts for politics.” I guess that’s a “subtle” way of admitting Obama, Hillary, et al, deliberately lied like a prayer rug. They forgot to mention the role of the media in delivering the lies and influencing the election.

    The interesting part involves Ham’s spin. You see, the military was in the dark about the scope of CIA and State Dept programs, so naturally all the rapid security response forces were unavailable. I mean, why be in a state of heightened readiness on 9/11? Then the time gap between waves of attackers fooled and paralyzed them (even though he admits a military presence would have deterred the second phase and doesn’t explain how having hours of extra time would deal a response to the first attack). And a handful of security forces were “held up for hours in Tripoli by the Libyan gov’t”. I recall that Obama, Biden, NSC, SecDef, and everybody BUT Hillary, were involved on the White House end, and had live surveillance from the drone. Was it their job to connect the secret dots and clue the military command in on the situation? Was it Obama’s job to call the PM of Libya and offer to accept his immediate 100% cooperation RIGHT FREAKING NOW. Oh, no...

    Dingy obviously thinks he can make hay out of this artificial issue. How many Senate Democrats already at risk of losing this Fall crave a chance to vote against religious liberty and for more anti-employer coercion?

    If the Supreme Court has ruled it a violation of constitutional rights to force religiously-opposed employers to pay for abortion-inducing drugs, how can the Senate change that fact by passing a new law?

    The source spews the following, and only the following, to establish that Klein is lying in this book:
    1) a photo was cropped in a previous book cover to make Bill look more salacious than usual. This is like arguing that the whale depicted on a “Moby Dick” dust jacket was too large, so “Bartleby the Scrivener” isn’t literature.
    2) the notion that anyone who back-channeled negative info about Hillary, to a famously anti-Clinton author, would have asked her permission.
    3) situations depicted in the book are “improbable” (i.e., contrary to their hopes and expectations).

    Chewbarkah to Steelfish

    The setup is false and the satirical point being attempted is specious.
    1) Like most legal systems, sharia involves a trial before a jurist trained in Islamic law, or at least a group of respected elders. The penalties are not carried out by the complainant before the fact. As presented in this article, an angry maniac committed an act of personal revenge. Nothing “lawful” in that, however you slice it.
    2) For a better analogy to the Hobby Lobby case, imagine if the government decreed that Muslim business owners treat their employees to daily pork dinners and gallons of whiskey. Should a devout Muslim be required to do that? I think not.

    I’ll take the Hobby Lobby decision as a small victory for freedom, but it certainly opens up some issues. The ruling recognizes that a closely-held corporation has the same rights as individuals. Edwards’ previous ruling on ACA, said if it was Constitutional (yet TBD), it was so through COngress’s power to “tax”. The ACA regulations that Hobby Lobby objected to are a form of taxation, and must be enforced as taxes. They were also created by unelected bureaucrats, not Congress.
    1) So can individuals who oppose, on religious grounds, the use to which other taxes are put, now legally refuse to pay them?
    2) What gives Congress the right to devolve its power to tax to executive-branch bureaucrats? What stops unelected bureaucrats from creating any sort of obligation they can fancy via ACA “tax regulations”?

    IIRC, JudgeNelson abruptly stopped testimony during the Zimmerman case when it began to reveal that Angela Corey’s office systematically subverts discovery and FOIA requirements by deliberately omitting case numbers and identifiable text from searchable parts of documents. Corey claims it would take 3700+ hours to research the current case, but forgets to mention that except for her crooked policy, it would take an hour or two of secretarial time. No doubt she is padding in many hours for “redacting” the docs to protect herself. If Victoria Rao is who I remember, her work isn’t worth $0.18. Floridians need to put Corey on the curb, and replace her with someone who will clean house.

    Chewbarkah to GrandJediMasterYoda

    Though I despise Judge Nelson, and think she should have recused herself from any case involving Zimmerman, libel law is severely flawed and needs to be changed. Why is evidence of “malice” required under the law, when it is obvious that NBC intended to benefit itself by deliberately and knowingly broadcasting evidence NBC falsified, that exploited and greatly harmed an individual? Did NBC harm Zimmerman or not? If a drunk driver kills someone, is he immune from responsibility because he lacked malicious intent against the victim? The networks made beaucoup money off this case, and had a corrupt interest in hyping it into existence.

    I suspect that Nelson is correct that there is no evidence that NBC acted out of malice towards GZ. Absent some sort of “I’m going to get that sucka” declaration, what evidence could there be? I doubt that they felt any. As true believers in PC fantasies, they see perfidy and libel for “the greater good” (as they define it) as altruism, not malice. To NBC staff, GZ was just an opportunity. They could get career points by pursuing NBC’s leftist politics (gun control/anti-self defense/stirring up racist animosity), and promoting the false idea that “whites” hunt down and murder black children. Isn’t presenting sensationalized false information for politics and ratings exactly what NBC, CBS, ABC, etc. do every day?

    Chewbarkah to SeekAndFind

    Some unpleasant facts:
    1) the Senate has an extremely partisan Democrat majority, controlled by arch-fiend Harry Reid.
    2) Senate Republicans are mostly spineless wieners.
    3) The House can impeach all day long, but the current Senate would not convict, even with the clearest evidence of massive crime by Obama personally.
    4) Stirring up impeachment now will cause Obama’s slave army to turn out this Fall, making it less likely Republicans can achieve a Senate majority.
    5) Premature impeachment would fail, but also provide the DNC Medioplex with a giant opportunity to portray Obama as a victim of unpatriotic, white supremacist, politicians.
    6) It will knock all factual stories of Obama’s (and Hillary’s) incompetence and criminal maladministration off the air and front pages - just when it is finally getting some play.

    So for once, I think Boehner is doing the right thing for this moment in time. The Supreme Court just blasted Obama unanimously in the NRLB recess-appointments case (an instance of the unConstitutional overreach Boehner is suing over — he should use the ruling to argue the case). His current suit will likely be spiked by corrupt Democrat judges. But having tried “every alternative” makes impeachment a much better sell next January. Then what do you do about Biden?

    Cochran, and probably other Republicans, will lose if McDaniel voters are pissed and stay home.

    Best strategy: McDaniel meets with Cochran’s handlers, Haley Barbour, etc., and offers conditional support. McDaniel will endorse and actively promote “healing” ONLY IF Cochran pledges to oppose amnesty vigorously (however disguised); support impeachment of Obama should the blessed opportunity arise; support real spending reductions; reduce Big Government regulation; etc. No tricks or weaseling allowed.

    If the above does not occur, and Cochran wins the general election anyway, he will have no obligation to support “Tea Party” positions.

    If it does occur, and McDaniel wins, we will have a functional facsimile of a conservative Senator in office.

    If it does not occur, a left-wing Democrat commissar will be elected to support amnesty, protect Obama, spend even more, confirm leftist judges and appointees, and vote for higher taxes, more regulation and PC insanity.

    Which seems preferable?

    The crashed hard-drive story is so over-the-top that it reeks of red herring. Lois Lerner, et al., knew that they were engaged in illegal activities. They knew that official communications get archived and are subject to FOIA requests and subpoenas. Isn’t it likely that a substantial portion of the most damning e-mails were never in official government accounts, but were sent on private accounts on personal smart-phones, laptops, etc.?

    A special prosecutor with an investigative staff is needed immediately. I believe there is no SP law currently. The Dem’s will fight tooth and nail to stop a real investigation from happening. Now is the time to force them into covering up the cesspit they have created. Even stupid voters know this is preposterous corruption.

    Chewbarkah to george76

    Global warming and cooling has happened throughout history. Whether recent global warming,unlike the previous 3 billion years, caused by human activity is the current question. It’s widely debated, but it is the easy part. What no one pays proper attention to is whether the proposed solution would work.

    So, let’s pretend that manipulated computer models of selected inadequate data prove that AGW plays the significant role in increasing average global temperature, and that nature does not.

    1) Do the Left’s proposed measures to reduce global temperatures have any proven basis in science and engineering? What is that proof?
    2) Would they reduce global temperatures in a reliable way?
    How do they know?
    3) Would the proposed reductions be uniform, or greatly varied at different part of the planet (like current temps).
    4) Could they have unintended consequences and negative effects on weather patterns, storms, agriculture,and cause regional flooding or desertification and famine? Oops.
    5) How much does each degree of theoretical global temperature reduction cost (directly and indirectly)? Who pays? Will China and the “developing world” share in the cost and reversal of “development”?
    6) What are the benchmarks for success? I see a huge potential for, “well, sure the temperature rose anyway. It would have been even hotter, if we hadn’t spent ...”
    7) What happens when the measures do not work as dreamed, after trillions are spent, the world economy and living standards are ruined, totalitarian governments installed, etc.? Will it suffice for Al Gore to say, “Gee, I guess I was wrong, but I got this $100 billion dollar t-shirt”?

    “as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are”

    Hillary is trying to fool the unwary and establish her cred as a tough pragmatist. By definition, abandoned children have no responsible adults in their families. Nor do children sent alone on 3000 mile journeys to undefined destinations. Her “as soon as” condition can never be met.

    Reasonable approach:
    1) Determine national origin of the children. If they don’t know or won’t say, assign them one. Assign the care of specific younger children to specific older ones.
    2) Notify consulates that their nationals are being returned to their countries of origin. Their nations should be ready to receive and care for their children at ____ airbase starting in three days.
    3) Fly them home by the C-5 load.
    4) Rinse and repeat as necessary.

    Chewbarkah to SeekAndFind

    “But why are you interested in what I think?” I guess for some mix of entertainment and enlightenment. David Brat is somewhat unfamiliar to me, and the author of this article utterly so. Context would be helpful.

    a) Does Brat actually advocate oddball economic ideas that make him “dangerous”? (if he does, the author failed to describe them);
    b) Is the author part of the Republican establishment, or a Leftist? What are his motives for attacking Brat with a mallet? Politics? Attention? Personal animus? What are his qualifications to comment on economics?

    I found the author to misconstrue basic concepts out of either duplicity, ignorance, or perhaps both. For someone playing on the word “bankruptcy”, he seems unaware that bankruptcy involves insufficient current liquidity to meet current obligations, not an utter absence of fixed assets. He falsely implies that theoretical US current assets (many of which are intractably illiquid) can in some way “fund” unfunded liabilities, without disastrous consequences for values like national sovereignty. He seems oblivious that fixed estimates of liabilities relate to a closed end time-frame, whereas entitlement liabilities and interest continue to accrue after that artificial time-frame ends (or at least until collapse stops the game); the expended assets can’t be spent or borrowed against again. Because having cake and eating it too doesn’t actually work, this is a death spiral. He resorts to special pleading about the US, as if it is somehow immune to economic laws, and thinks currency devaluation can buy free lunch forever without consequences (such as hyperinflation and/or other nations establishing alternative reserve currencies). On the positive side, he spelled “Brat” correctly.

    Gosh, with this arrest of Ahmed Abu Squirrel, I am so distracted that I can’t even remember the release of the Taliban commanders, the collapse of Iraq, or the upcoming KKKaliphate. Did they reel him in by asking for an interview? Is he dating one of the Kardashians?

  • Shock: Fmr Breitbart Journo Did Extensive DNA Research; Will Destroy Obama’s Legacy!?

    “he also did extensive DNA research. He claimed that he found that dark pigmentation spots that can be seen on Frank Marshall Davis’s face and Obama’s face, is a genetic trait seen in the Western Africa and not seen in Kenya, where Obama Sr. resided.”

    So, Obama has spots on his face, therefore Frank Marshall Davis is his father. I can’t imagine why Breitbart didn’t want to stake his reputation on that...

    The sad fact is that enough is well known/understood about Obama by all of us to absolutely sink him and the donkeys he rode in on. NO FURTHER EVIDENCE IS REQUIRED — not laughable DNA arguments, West African skin spots, or videos of Obama devouring live children and their dogs, or much worse, having drag-queen sex with Nancy Pelosi. The problem here is that a voting majority of the electorate are in on the criminal conspiracy. They want to steal everything you have and Obama is their agent.

    So by all means keep digging for the Truth, because most of us want to know what it is. But a majority do not, and race trumps reality in America.

    Is there any way to get a customer list from this company? All PD’s and agencies that buy or use these targets should be exposed so that voters can oust whoever is irresponsible for it.

    The next time any person similar to those depicted is shot by police, the survivors need to determine if the PD uses these targets for training officers to gun down non-threatening folks without “hesitation” (i.e., thinking).

    Those are all forms of alternative employment for those who can’t find/don’t want/or don’t qualify for mainstream employment. I am surprised the Bureau of Labor Statistics doesn’t count them as employed.

    We already have a woman in charge, or more precisely, present (when not golfing or on holiday).

    “to stop more than 1,000 criminals annually from buying weapons.”

    1. False — if the preamble is even accurate, it only stopped them from buying firearms legally. Illegal firearms, knives, cars still easily obtained.

    2. And what was done to the 1,000 “criminals”? How many were arrested? Prosecuted? Convicted/Jailed? Probation/parole revoked? Can we guess few or none? Maybe start with enforcing laws that exist.

    Examples from the Orwellian Hillariverse:

    Brutal: Hillary being asked about the evolution of her position on gay marriage.

    Not so brutal: Eqypt (Hosni Mubarak, and his Muslim Brotherhood successor imprisoned, likely tortured real savage); Libya (Khaddafi slaughtered, US Ambassador murdered and possibly raped post mortem, civil war); Iraq (multifaction civil war with Islamists beheading the prisoners); Somalia; Nigeria; etc.

    Yes, poor Hillary is sooooo put upon by our brutal politics.

    ” he started dialogues on poverty and some other issues that were sort of outside of what Republicans have traditionally talked about.”

    Being completely out of step with what Republican voters want...Yeah, that’s the ticket. Cantor did so well with that in the primary.

    Could these RNC drones be more pathetic?
