  • (Stolen) Classified Documents re Bowe Bergdahl Capture (Compliments Bradley 'Chelsea' Manning)

    06/08/2014 1:06:20 PM PDT · by mazda77 · 61 replies
    (CRIMINAL EVENT) KIDNAPPING RPT B CO 1-501 PIR : 0 INJ/DAM This apparently was one of the documents compliments of Bradly Manning's leaking. The timeline fits. Assigned in 2009 to an Army unit in Iraq as an intelligence analyst, Manning had access to classified databases. In early 2010 she leaked classified information to WikiLeaks and confided this to Adrian Lamo, an online acquaintance. Lamo informed Army Counterintelligence, and Manning was arrested in May that same year. The material included videos of the July 12, 2007 Baghdad airstrike, and the 2009 Granai airstrike in Afghanistan; 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables; and 500,000...

    I just sent the following to viewer@c-apan.org With all due respect, does your organization, paid for by our tax dollars, honestly think the South Korean Presidents speech is more important than the Benghazi hearings? HONESTLY!? Put her on 3 and elevate the hearings to either C-Span or C-Span2 where most people are able to see it on their televisions. Of utmost concern, is your access to the bandwidth necessary to eliminate cutouts and drop-offs. DirecTV only has 1 and 2 on their lineup and from what I am told is the case for most other cable providers, without having to...

    The Senate Select Committee on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act voted 7-4 today to reject expanding Medicaid, which was a crucial component of Obamacare. This along with the recent rejection by the House Select Committee on PPACA ends the chances of Medicaid Expansion, at least for now. Senator Joe Negron, who chairs the Committee, was quoted as saying "I oppose the Washington plan, and I want a Florida plan." The Committee did decide that Florida should create its own program that helps the uninsured buy private insurance policies, and plans to work with the House Committee to work...

    The Blaze ^ | 9/26/12 | Becket Adams
    [snip]Simply put, most of this dispute comes down to the NFLRA opposing the NFL’s attempts to make refs contribute to their own pensions.[snip] [snip]Of course, there are other, less contentious issues being negotiated: the NFLRA wants the NLF to increase the $18.6 million it currently splits among its 121 referees. The NFL will only go as high as $19 million. Also, the NFL wants to hire more refs and make the ones they have full-time employees. Wait, wait, wait! Professional NFL refs are part-time employees? Yup. In fact, a lot of them work other jobs in the offseason. This means...
  • Obama camp denies knowledge of cancer tale it told in May

    08/08/2012 8:44:07 PM PDT · by mazda77 · 18 replies
    Oops? President Barack Obama's re-election campaign washed its hands Wednesday of an independent group's vicious (and misleading) ad effectively blaming Mitt Romney for the death of a laid-off steelworker's wife from cancer. Campaign officials flatly denied any knowledge of the facts in the case—but it turns out the widower told the same story on an Obama campaign conference call in mid-May. (The Obama campaign responded late in the day: See update below). "We have nothing, no involvement, with any ads that are done by Priorities USA. We don't have any knowledge of the story of the family," Obama campaign spokeswoman...

    7/4/12 | Me
    Is it me or is there a comparatively high amount of news stories comparing the U.S. unemployment rate to those of the E.U. When I first started to see these I wondered to myself; Is there someplace that details how those European countries calculate or derive those numbers and how do they compare to the phoney way they are calculated here? Seeing that the real number in this country is somewhere close to 15%, when counting everyone who has fallen off the compensation rolls or the underemployed looking for full time work and can't find it, are we really better...

    House Democrats Thursday called on the Justice Department to investigate whether large banks are coordinating new fees in violation of antitrust laws. Representative Peter Welch said public statements by big banks and trade groups raise questions about whether financial firms have colluded on fee increases to make up for revenues lost because of a new cap on debit card swipe fees. The letter is the latest battle over the Durbin amendment, which went into effect on Oct. 1 and cut by nearly half the amount banks can charge merchants when customers swipe their debit cards.

    President Obama is working hard to stay outside of the blast radius if House Republicans and Senate Democrats are unable to cut a deal to keep the government open when current emergency funding expires at midnight Friday. Congressional Democrats have noticed that in his efforts to avoid blame for what is shaping up as a procedural pileup, the president has increasingly been highlighting their failure to pass, or even put forward, a budget last year. This week, Obama has mentioned multiple times that the current debate was over an issue that should have been resolved “six months ago.” That was...

    While listening to Bill Bennett's show yesterday morning on my way to Orlando from JAX, he discussed starting a campaign of "Praising Arizona". The first thing that came to mind was all those who support their current moves could put a little state flag sticker on their raer window. I called the show and he has picked up the concept and commented on it a couple more times. I did a search and came up with this: http://www.flagstickershop.com/arizona.html This place is in Dawsonville, Georgia so I would think the conservative string is strong in this business considering they also sell...

Engineer logic would tell me that something is about to let lose really big.

    Yahoo News / TIME ^ | 10/6/09 | By MARK THOMPSON / WASHINGTON
    Unlike the chattering classes, senior military officers didn't raise an eyebrow when General Stanley McChrystal recently said he had only spoken once to President Obama since assuming command in Afghanistan. The military chain of command is there for a reason, and Obama seems to be sticking to it more faithfully than President George W. Bush did. But tensions are inevitable as the troop needs of U.S. commanders on the ground come up against the reservations of a political leadership increasingly leery of being trapped in an Afghan quagmire. Some have argued that McChrystal violated military protocol by giving a speech...

Back him into a corner, get the press all wee-weed up, send his polls ratings plummeting and the aging basketball player responds again and again with the same move: he delivers a major speech. And why not? It keeps working. It's the thing that first introduced him to the nation, at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. It is what extricated him from the Jeremiah Wright mess during the campaign. It has become the central method of his foreign policy push, in Prague, Cairo, Moscow and Accra.
