Sarah Palin´s New Conspiracy Theory
Was Debunked Before She
Even Wrote About It

Slate, by Josh Voorhees

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/27/2013 3:39:27 PM

I´ll make this quick because, as many of you will no doubt note in the comments, the Internet seems to spend more time than it should discussing the exploits of an almost-one-term governor turned talking head turned talking head without a cable news contract. But given how much attention Sarah Palin´s latest Facebook post has gotten, it´s probably worth the two minutes it takes to debunk one of its more outlandish claims—especially given the conspiracy theory was already debunked before she even wrote about it. Here´s the snippet

Wow.. slate hates Sarah Palin. Who would believe it?

By definition, anything she says is untrue. Why the gov´t buys 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition is never questioned.

Gee, who are you going to believe, WaPo, Slate or SP?

It says it needs them—roughly the equivalent of five bullets for every person in the United States—for law enforcement agents in training and on duty. ...

The debunking that´s going on doesn´t debunk anything. Who´s doing this debunking? That fact is that the Government is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition. If you take purchases from the DHS, IRS, EPA, Department of Education and others, they have on the books that they are purchasing over 3B shells. About half are hollow point shells that aren´t used for squirrels or target practice. The left would love to convince everyone that this is not true. Once again, hollow point bullets are not used for target practice. And why do they need to practice so much shooting at targets?

Yup! Palins nuts! Governments never have contingency plans for possible events where the citizens may need protection or riot.

They just bought all that ammo in a whim...

It was then Vice President Joe Biden had envisioned his greatest prank yet. Putting down his choom pipe he turned to the slim squinty eyed President mellowing on the couch, munching on Cheetos.

"Check this out! We will grab a few million and buy a bunch of freakin´ bullets man! It will be epic! We will have all those Tea Baggers and that ditz Palin wigging out all over the place! Hell ya!" Biden said as he extended his hand out to dap his fist with the grinning President, who was busy sparking another bowl of Maui Wowwie!

The government would have us believe that every DHS agent needs more ammo for practice than the avergage combat infantryman gets to shoot, before deploying to a combat zone. The Army did not shoot up that much small arms ammo during a year of combat in Irag at the height of the war. But everyone knows this is the most transparent administration in history.

Just another thought.

You´d think that with the looming cuts in spending, that they´d forego the ammunition needed for the future when they can´t afford to keep illegal aliens in detention today.

Besides - didn´t "they" tell us that law enforcement money would be cut?

Palin has never misspoken about anything this big in the past, and she isn´t now. She has only been lied about by people who want to keep truth out of politics (= the socialists = the Democrats). It´s good to see they still consider her a threat to their cover-ups of Dear Leader.

As I said all over Slate, I don´t see any proof that anything has been debunked. All I see are the claims made by the government vs. claims made by others. Just because the government SAYS something doesn´t mean it is true. There is no proof anywhere to support anyone´s claim other than the sheer numbers involved.

The t ruth is not to be found in appeasers, liberals, or moderate Repubs. I trust Palin, DeMint, Cruz, Rubio, and Rand Paul...until I don´t. So far none of those have betrayed my trust.

The Washington Post Corrects, Disingenuously

On March 20, the Washington Post published an article by Steven Mufson and Julie Eilperin, the import of which was that Koch Industries is the driving force behind the Keystone Pipeline. The article, based entirely on a six-month-old report by a far-left group called the International Forum on Globalization that I demolished last October, was headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The piece’s point was summarized succinctly in a quote by a spokesman for IFG: “IFG’s intention is to demonstrate the Koch-Keystone connection.” I critiqued the Post story

The April 29th deadline has not yet been reached, but it may be said with confidence that the initiative by Secretary of State John Kerry to revive the ‘peace process’ between Israelis and Palestinians has already reached its final destination: failure. The failure of this initiative was obvious from the beginning. To everyone except, apparently, Kerry himself. This reality lent an element of low farce to the entire proceedings. By now, it should really be obvious to any serious observer that there is no chance that the Israeli-Palestinian negotiating process will produce a comprehensive peace between the two sides. There are two core

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

MOKPO, South Korea -- The aroma of one of South Korea´s most popular delicacies is regularly compared to rotting garbage and filthy bathrooms. And that´s by fans. The unusual dish is typically made by taking dozens of fresh skate, a cartilage-rich fish that looks like a stingray, stacking them up in a walk-in refrigerator and waiting. Up to a month in some cases.

A White House adviser had to walk back the oft-repeated myth that women make 77 cents on the dollar that men make after being questioned about the figure during a conference call Monday. While detailing executive actions President Obama plans to take Tuesday regarding equal pay for women, Betsey Stevenson, a member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said very defiantly that despite women contributing 44 percent of their household incomes, they continue to make less than men. Obama has declared Tuesday "Equal Pay Day" to highlight his administration´s focus on that issue. “They’re stuck at 77 cents on the

Earlier Today I reported that health insurance premiums are showing the sharpest increases perhaps ever according to a survey of brokers who sell coverage in the individual and small group market. Morgan Stanley’s healthcare analysts conducted the proprietary survey of 148 brokers. The April survey shows the largest acceleration in small and individual group rates (for renewing health plans) in any of the 12 prior quarterly periods when the regular analysis has been conducted. The average increases for the present quarter are in excess of 11% in the small group market and 12% in the individual market, where consumers purchase

Paralyzed Patients Move Again
with Spinal Stimulation
Live Science, by Tanya Lewis    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/8/2014 9:09:27 AM     Post Reply
For people who become paralyzed after a spinal cord injury, the condition is usually permanent, but a new study suggests that zapping the spine with electricity during physical training could help paralyzed patients regain movement. Researchers applied electrical stimulation to the spines of four people who had been paralyzed for more than two years. All four patients were able to flex their toes, ankles and knees again, and their movements improved further with physical rehabilitation, the research showed. If proven effective in more people, the stimulation therapy could ultimately change the prognosis for people living with paralysis, researchers say.

Last week, continuing the sometimes catty intraparty feud between Republican hawks and GOPers skeptical of foreign intervention, former Vice President Dick Cheney took a shot at Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). But Paul is not likely to be fazed by criticism from Cheney, for several years ago the Kentucky senator was pushing the conspiratorial notion that the former VP exploited the horrific 9/11 attacks to lead the nation into war in Iraq in order to benefit Halliburton, the enormous military contractor where Cheney had once been CEO.

It will be weeks before the final results of Afghanistan’s presidential election, held Saturday, are announced. And the winner won’t take office until June. Nevertheless, the voting, the third of its kind since the fall of the Taliban in 2001, has already provided a new and exciting political snapshot of a country emerging from four decades of turmoil. The first feature of this snapshot is that a majority of Afghans have adopted elections as the best means of choosing and changing governments. On Saturday, more than 7 million went to the polls — almost 60 percent of registered voters — a

If the pings reported by the Chinese and Australians turn out to be from Malaysia Flight 370´s data recorders, we may be on the road to finding the plane and solving the mystery of its disappearance. But even if that is the case, we´ll need to resolve a larger issue: Incomprehensible as it might seem to the flying public, it is almost equally perplexing to airline pilots that a 650,000 pound airplane can disappear with barely a trace.

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.
