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.

"...No one knows what it´s like to be hated
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.

Winston Churchill´s Brilliant Plan

the First World War
American Thinker, by Jeff Lipkes    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 8/4/2014 12:24:28 PM     Post Reply
On Wednesday, July 29, 1914, the British Cabinet met to discuss the European crisis. Time was running out: Austria-Hungary had just declared war on Serbia, and that afternoon would shell Belgrade. In just two days, Russia and then Germany would mobilize, and the diplomats and politicians would be sidelined. (snip)In his midnight letter to his wife on July 28th, Churchill, after expressing his sense of guilt over his excitement about the looming war, continued in another vein. “Yet I would do my best for peace,” he wrote. …and nothing would induce me wrongfully to strike the blow… I wonder whether those

How to Solve the Putin Problem
American Thinker, by Herbert E, Meyer    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 8/4/2014 7:15:42 AM     Post Reply
Especially when dealing with Russians, subtlety gets you nowhere; you must tell them, bluntly, what you want to happen. For example, when someone asked President Reagan to explain the objective of his Cold War strategy he replied: We win, they lose. As President Reagan might have put it: Well, here we go again.... Last month’s shoot down of Malaysia Air Flight 17 over Ukraine has made clear to just about everyone -- certainly to President Obama and even to some of Western Europe’s most feckless leaders -- what should have been obvious a long time ago: Russian President Vladimir Putin is a

Come to America for the safety, but stay for the amenities. That’s the message being sent to the children of Central America by the new detention center resident center just unveiled in Karnes City, Texas by ICE, which seems to be bursting with pride over the amenities being offered our guests. “I am pretty sure you will agree this is nothing like we have seen before,” said ICE field office director Enrique Lucero during Thursday’s media tour of the facility.

Mediatracker, a website that tracks media stories and works for transparency in government, has uncovered a heretofore unknowm group made up of some of the most powerful and influential leftists in the country. The private Google group known as "Gamechanger Salon" features a veritable who´s who of far left heavy hitting political activists (snip)Like Journolist, the advantage of a group like this is that talking points and political attacks can be highly coordinated.

A good friend of mine apologized to me today. You see, he voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election and he lives in a so-called “swing state.” He told me that he had not voted for Obama in the 2012 election, but that he realized that by supporting him in 2008, he had help unleash a deadly virus onto the American scene. He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

More bad luck for Hillary
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/30/2014 9:32:09 AM     Post Reply
If she weren’t such a ruthless and pathological power-hungry phony, I would almost feel sorry for Hillary Rodham Clinton. It’s starting to look as though 2016 may be another election like 2008, in which the presumptive nominee runs into sheer bad luck that ends up derailing her plans. She never anticipated in 2008 that a young, untested, almost unknown freshman senator would trump her “historic first” woman president candidacy with the “historic first” black president strategy. This time around, the problem is slightly different, although a freshman senator who can meet (but not trump) the “historic first” appeal exists in the

What would Hamas do

rationalize its behavior?
American Thinker, by Carol Brown    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/29/2014 8:47:38 AM     Post Reply
Jorge Ramos of Fusion TV recently interviewed Hillary Clinton. In discussing the war between Hamas and Israel, Clinton managed to say at least half a dozen outrageous things in a span of just 2 minutes. When asked the now familiar and misguided question about whether Israel has responded to Hamas in a disproportionate way, Clinton seized the opportunity to tout how when she negotiated a cease fire “it held until just this month. And then Hamas, which has its back against the wall, decided to fire rockets into Israel.” First, a quick aside. Can we stop with “proportionality” already? Israel (and the West) is in a fight for its life. The enemy is Islam.

Glen Beck´s Kinder, Gentler
Exploitation of the Border Crisis
American Thinker, by John T. Bennett    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/28/2014 9:07:26 AM     Post Reply
Glen Beck’s “charity” charade is neither conservative nor, in my opinion, Christian. This nation’s charitable impulses have already been exploited beyond belief through decades’ worth of lax immigration enforcement. The most likely outcome of Beck’s “charity” act is that it will diminish the rule of law and undermine conservative goals. With his flippant gift-giving, Beck (and his colleagues like Dana Loesch) will make it harder for America to reduce illegal immigration, maintain our sovereignty, and restrain the welfare state. How could teddy bears and soccer balls have such an impact? The short answer is that giving door prizes to illegal aliens

War is either the arm of political strategy or an existential moment. (snip)The IDF is sent into battle with a reminder that it is sword of Israel. It is an agent less of the State than of the people. At some point, the harsh reality of its history is finally accepted. “Death to the Jews” fills the air in many capitals, East and West. Until this moment, this was taken as the background noise. But “Death to the Jews” is now its own reality. Israel is perilously close to the IDF code: Israel cannot afford to lose one war and

Hillary Clinton though it was funny when Kaddafi died. Who’s laughing now? In this 11-second video, then Secretary of State Clinton laughed about the fall of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, saying, “We came. We saw. He died.”This video displayed the killing of Kaddafi that Hillary found so funny:Today, over three years later, Libya, the nation, has degenerated into complete chaos. The U.S. mainstream media largely lost interest Libya after Gaddafi’s death. It was “Mission Accomplished” from the new bureaus’ perspective. On to the next big story.

Five Fatal Flaws of Solar Energy
American Thinker, by Viv Forbes    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/25/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
The sun is the most important energy source on Earth. Solar energy powers the growth of all trees, grasses, herbs, crops and algae; it creates the clouds and powers the storms; it is the source of all hydro, photo-voltaic (PV), solar-thermal, bio-mass, and wind energy. Over geological time, it also creates coal. PV solar panels are useful in remote locations and for some portable applications. With enough panels and batteries, standalone solar can even power homes. But solar energy has five fatal flaws for supplying 24/7 grid power. Firstly, sunshine at any spot is always intermittent and often unreliable. Solar panels can deliver

IRS backup tapes discovered!

You can tell that this is a huge story because the Mainstream Media are completely ignoring it, leaving Fox News the privilege of continuing to break the story that could well be bigger than Watergate. It requires a bit of reading between the lines (though not a lot) to grasp what is going on. Yesterday, IRS head John Koskinen revealed in testimony before Darrell Issa’s House Oversight Committee (via Fox): ...that investigators looking into missing emails from ex-agency official Lois Lerner have found and are reviewing "backup tapes" -- despite earlier IRS claims that the tapes had been recycled.

That seems like an awfully strong word, but it is the term that distinguished law professor Glenn Reynolds, no hysteric, uses to describe the Obama administration’s oft-reported plan to issue executive amnesty to five or six million illegal immigrants in violation of federal law. Glenn’s characterization is a fair one. When a tyrant asserts the right to rule by decree in a state that has formerly been subject to the rule of law, he is commonly described as carrying out a coup d’etat. That is just what the Obama administration has done, and reportedly will continue to do. When Obama changed

White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett says Israeli strikes near civilian havens in Gaza were indefensible. "This is why the cease-fire is so important," Jarrett said in an interview aired Sunday on CBS´ "Face the Nation." "It´s a devastating situation. Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself, and we are Israel´s staunchest ally. But you also can´t condone the killing of all of these innocent children." President Barack Obama, she said, was concerned and frustrated by the ongoing violence despite efforts by Secretary of State John Kerry to broker a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. "I think everyone involved is frustrated," Jarrett

Dear “Conservatives” and “Establishment Republicans,” I write today in the hope you all can get over whatever anger, distrust or bruised egos this primary season and political year has caused you. We on the right need to unite and send a message to progressives by unambiguously retaking the U.S. Senate in November. We all have some problem with what’s happened so far. Someone we liked lost a primary. Someone we didn’t won. Some piece of legislation we hate passed; some other piece we liked did not.

The events of the past few weeks on America’s southern border bring into clearer focus the Obama pledge to fundamentally transform America. By opening our borders to illegal immigrants, and pardoning those illegals already here as he plans through executive order, Obama will create millions of new citizens within a few years to help him transform America into a multicultural vacationland for the world’s footloose homeless with free food, housing, education, entertainment, and healthcare as drawing cards.

The BBC has enraged Muslim staff after holding a hog roast to celebrate the Commonwealth Games - under the windows of the Arabic TV service. An entire pig was spit-roasted in the courtyard of New Broadcasting House, central London, with wafts of meat drifting up to the predominantly Muslim office. Staff in the department whose religion bans them from eating pork blasted the ´horror´ at spotting the carcass on their lunch break. The event on Friday, celebrating the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, was held just days after the close of Ramadan, a month of fasting for Muslims for spiritual reflection.

The obsession by the Obama-Kerry administration with imposing a cease-fire on the warring parties in the Hamas-Israel war will go down in history as one of the most strategic mistakes in military history. Here is a fact the administration deliberately and maliciously ignored: In the history of modern warfare, no terrorist group has ever honored a cease-fire. Hamas has broken every cease-fire it ever said it would honor. Every single one. Even the Israel-Hamas 2012 cease fire, brokered by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was simply agreed to by Hamas to give it an opportunity to restock its military arsenal, pressure Israel

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama dismissed Russia as a nation that "doesn´t make anything" and said in an interview with the Economist magazine that the West needs to be "pretty firm" with China as Beijing pushes to expand its role in the world economy. (Snip) Russia is the world´s third-largest oil producer and second-largest natural gas producer. Europe relies heavily on Russian energy exports, complicating the West´s response to the Ukraine crisis. Obama downplayed Moscow´s role in the world, dismissing President Vladimir Putin as a leader causing short-term trouble for political gain that will hurt Russia in the long term.

At Chapman School in Nebraska, resourceful students hawk pizza and cookie dough to raise money for school supplies, field trips and an eighth-grade excursion to Washington. They peddle chocolate bars to help fund the yearbook. But the sales won´t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.

Something rather dangerous is happening in American politics right now, all the more so for being taken for granted by many of the people watching it unfold. I do not mean the confusion of House Republicans, or the general gridlock in Congress, which are impeding legislative action on the child migrant crisis (among other matters). Incompetence and gridlock are significant problems, indeed severe ones, but they’re happening within the context of a constitutional system that allows for — and can survive — congressional inaction. What is different — more cynical and more destructive — is the course President Obama is
