The fate of Jay Carney
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 7/6/2014 10:13:43 AM

After leaving the White House with a reputation for telling lies, what are the career options open for Jay Carney? Once upon a time, he was an actual reporter who gathered news and was supposed to be believed, working for Time Magazine, which some readers may remember used to be a major publication. According to the Daily Caller, next stop: MSNBC (snip)it is too early to shed any tears for Jay. After all, there are many hundreds of campuses where students pay mandatory “student activity fees” in the hundreds of dollars each, that are used to hire outside speakers to come

Carney´s move to the truth-challenged MessNBC seems wholly appropriate. Any college students´ association that hires him as a speaker ought to have their heads examined.

To be fated to telling only lies...." (Pete Townshend, "Behind Blue Eyes")

That is fitting. Based on history, people who watch MSNBC are OK with being lied to. It makes them feel good to live in a fantasy world where the truth can´t interfere...

He no doubt took the job with visions of vaulting from wet-behind-the-ears whiz kid at a once-relevant Time Magazine to a David Gergen-type DC elder statesman who had seen it all and would spend the rest of his days stroking his chin and pontificating for pay.

But then one of two things happened:

1) He willingly joined a cabal of hard-core leftists for whom objective truth could be willed into nonexistence and a sycophant press could be used to maximum advantage.

2) He was, by many reliable accounts, rarely given access to the inner circle, especially the president for whom he claimed to speak. He soldiered on in his job, thinking of the inevitable day he would leave the WH and cash in. Despite his lack of contact with his boss he still adopted Obama´s smug, obtuse, argumentative and juvenile attitude, refusing to concede the most basic and obvious of facts.

In either scenario he demonstrated beyond doubt his absolute baseness of character.

After an apprenticeship in lying for political advantage, it only makes sense to move on to lying for political advantage and lotsa money. It´s the way of Obamaworld.

Courtiers at NBC bid farewell

With all those hickeys on her posterior, will Chelsea Clinton be able to sit down for the next week? It’s hard for pregnant women to stay on their feet for extended periods of time, so there may adverse consequences to the abasement the Peacock Network has put itself through, currying favor with the almighty Clinton Machine. As you probably know if you follow political news, Ms. Clinton, with no journalistic experience, skill or appeal (beyond her relatives) landed a $600,000 a year entry-level gig at NBC New (later modified into a monthly contract), cutting her teeth on hard-driving “stories featuring people

Megyn Kelly smackdown on Obama apologist

In an interview with Penny Lee, Democratic Strategist and former advisor to Harry Reid (yeah, that kinda says it all), Megyn Kelly could not refrain from expressing exasperation with her guest. And who could blame her? Kelly started out asking Lee about Obama’s decision to attend a Democratic fundraiser while we’re weighing whether to bomb Syria. (video embedded) Before Lee uttered a word, she spoke volumes with what I now consider to be a predictable progressive response to serious matters: the smile/laugh/smirk. This facial expression conveys condescension and arrogance, as if to suggest that what was said or asked is foolish,

The bloody-handed butchers of ISIS behave like the worst Islamofascist gang we have seen so far (snip)In fact, this looks like a movement backed by unknown but radical sources, and somehow able to command the capability of a regular army, the logistics, planning, recon, real-time command and control, high-tech maintenance and use of advanced drones, tanks, tactical and strategic coordination, terror PR, as well as the usual screaming maniacs riding on pickup trucks with a 50 caliber machine gun precariously mounted on the truck bed.

Let’s cut President Obama some slack. Golf is a challenging game, and he has been focused like a laser (as Bill Clinton used to say) on improving his game on Martha’s Vineyard, and there’s only so much a guy can do. Coming up with a strategy for dealing with guys who are the junior varsity can wait – and after all there are three fundraisers and a wedding beckoning this holiday weekend, so what’s the hurry? Unfortunately for any residual desire of President Obama’s desire to be seen as a serous leader, the above sarcastic apologia fits his pattern of behavior

We´ve been focusing a lot on President Obama´s foreign policy, from Ukraine to Libya to Syria to Iraq to Israel and Iran. However, get ready for ObamaCare to make a return engagement to our front pages, and politics as well. Sally Pipes posted some numbers yesterday that won´t make Democrats happy, especially those in tight elections: "Get readyto pay more for health insurance next year, compliments of Obamacare. A new analysis from PricewaterhouseCoopers projects that average premiums for policies sold through Obamacare’s exchanges will increase 7.5 percent in 2015.

The Fairytale of the Victimhood

I recently read an article entitled “What Black Parents Tell Their Sons About the Police” and I began to ponder the downward spiral in race relations over the past five years. According to the author Jazmine Hughes: “Such is the burden of black parenting. Being a black parent, especially of a black boy, comes with the added onus of having to protect your child from a country that is out to get him -- a country that kills someone that looks like him every 28 hours, a country that will likely imprison him by his mid-thirties if he doesn´t get his

If you ever doubted the direction France is headed, you need doubt no more. The headline reads: “One in six French people say they support ISIS” (snip) So, to recap: Muslims comprise 6.5% of the population in France. (This minority wreaks a lot of havoc, no?) They are “disgruntled.” (What’s new?) The terror state of Qatar is investing massive amounts of money in France. (What could go wrong?) One if six people in France support ISIS. (Gee, I wonder what the demographics of that group are?) French Muslims voted in droves for a socialist president.

Cable Karma: Fox News soars as CNN

According to a report in The Wrap, CNN and sister network Headline News are planning to lay off 550 staffers, a huge and very painful cutback. (snip)Because progressives dominate 90% of media outlets and studiously ignore major stories like the IRS scandals, Benghazi, and basically anything harmful to Democrats, Fox News is handed the opportunity to reach the public with distinctive content unavailable elsewhere, and the public is responding. Most major media would rather be progressive than successful. But then again, progressivism almost never works as it promises, based as it is on a false notion that human nature can be

The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS’s depredations in Syria and Iraq, and Hamas’s misrule in Gaza have finally caused the Saudis to publicly signal a rethinking of the reflexive commitment to destroying Israel. A tacit alignment of Saudi Arabia with Israel has long been discussed, but a very senior and influential member of the Saudi ruling family has very publicly declared that maybe the Jewish state can be tolerated, the Palestinians should ramp down their attempts to destroy it.

It is essential to the Democrats’ hopes for a strong black turnout in November that the manufactured narrative of evil white cops assassinating an innocent black teenager be maintained. As Richard Baehr noted to me, “…after the video appeared of the robbery and theft, a new narrative was needed for Michael Brown. It is not only the robbery/ assault/in the store, but the reports of violence to the officer (damaged eye socket), and admission by Brown´s team that he was in an altercation with officer in the car, that has impacted pubic opinion that he was a choirboy.” The New York

Having burned down and looted many businesses that serve their community, some residents of Ferguson (or maybe it is just the outsiders who came in to join the outrage) are realizing that it is going to be inconvenient to have nowhere nearby to buy food, liquor, tobacco, and other merchandise. Burned out stores also hire very few people, in case anyone actually wants a job.

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week.

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended
