The Long (And Dreary) Goodbye
American Spectator, by Larry Thornberry

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/12/2017 4:46:59 AM

The great detective writer Raymond Chandler’s final Philip Marlowe novel is titled “The Long Goodbye.” Perhaps Chandler was looking forward to Barack Obama’s look-at-me-I’m-still-important address Tuesday night. It was a dirge that went on at No-Doz length. Unfortunately, I missed the address in real time because I had a conflict. I had to flea-powder the cat. As for addresses, it was sufficient for me that Obama’s will soon no longer start with 1600. But I learned Wednesday morning that Obama established a new NCAA record for adios speech length, speaking longer than Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton combined

Obama is like Florence Foster Jenkins. No matter how atrociously she sang, the reviews were glowing, regardless of how badly ´Lady Florence´ performed. So too with Obama. No matter how ridiculous his speeches (and actions), the media still fawns over him, thus participating int he conspiracy of silence.

Someone should remind widdle barry that "lack of brevity is the soul of witlessness". He better learn to formulate a more compact utterance, if he wants to host his podcast from Leavenworth.

After eight long years of Smidgen´s self congratulatory strutting, we all knew exactly what to expect from his last and most narcissistic delusional run-on. And that´s what we got. (Though I didn´t watch it - I had to trim my toenails.)

Castro also gave long speeches.

The long goodbye? Hardly. The pied piper propaganda media will have front page stories on Jan 21 showing the putz leaving his grandiose digs to pontificate to his adoring media.

He´s never going away. The fawning media will breathlessly report every bowel movement for the rest of their lives.

For eight years Obama was nothing more than a bad joke. Now he´s a boring joke.

Saint Barack?
City Journal, by Matthew Hennessey    Original Article

Barack Obama is fond of the idea that history has an “arc,” a dubious proposition, born of Obama’s belief that human relations and events, ordered by politics, move in only one direction—upward, according to a modern progressive’s notion of what that word means. In fact, the passage of time has a habit of sanding down the flaws of history’s gods and monsters, sanitizing the bloody and dehumanizing cost of war and conquest, and turning even the worst actors into mere points on a timeline. Was Alexander the Great on the right end of the arc of history? To ask the

Buzzfeed just did

New York Post, by Rich Lowry    Original Article

The best thing that happened to Donald Trump all week is that BuzzFeed published the raw Russia dossier about him. It can’t be pleasant for anyone to see his name associated with prostitutes and a bizarre sex act in print — the principle that all publicity is good publicity can be taken too far, even for Donald Trump. But in the media’s ongoing fight with Trump, BuzzFeed’s incredible act of journalistic irresponsibility represented the press leading with its chin. Trump thrives off of media hostility, and the more hostile — and the less defensible — the better. It allows him to portray himself

It sounds like a story lifted from the pages of a spy novel. U.S. intelligence officials have concluded that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin led a cyberespionage scheme designed to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. What´s even worse is that Putin´s plan worked and Trump now seems to be siding with Russia against U.S. intelligence agencies. It´s hard to know how to respond to this because it is unprecedented. But it is essential to take whatever action is necessary to make this right, as difficult, complicated and even uncomfortable as that may be. The hard reality is that the presidential election

An Arizona trooper who had been shot and was being beaten by a man with a pistol was saved Thursday by a motorist who killed his attacker, authorities said. The man who came upon the scene warned the suspect to stop striking the officer, but the man continued, said Capt. Damon Cecil, a spokesman for the Arizona Department of Public Safety, said. The good Samaritan got a gun from his car and shot the suspect, who died at the scene. The trooper, a 27-year veteran, was shot in the chest and shoulder. He is in serious and stable condition, Cecil said. Col. Frank

C-SPAN said Thursday it is investigating why its online feed began broadcasting Russia Today, the Russian state-sponsored English news network. In a statement on Thursday, the network said that while it suspected the mistake was internal, it was examining the issue. "This afternoon the online feed for C-SPAN was briefly interrupted by RT programming. We are currently investigating and troubleshooting this occurrence. As RT is one of the networks we regularly monitor, we are operating under the assumption that it was an internal routing issue," the network said in an email. Russia Today denied that it cut into the broadcast,

Conservative commentator Monica Crowley, who is slated to serve in a top national security communications role in Donald Trump´s presidential administration, plagiarized thousands of words of her 2000 dissertation for her Columbia University Ph.D., a CNN KFile review has found. On Monday, Politico reported that it found more than a dozen examples of plagiarism in Crowley´s Ph.D. dissertation. CNN´s KFile has found nearly 40 lengthy instances of Crowley lifting paragraphs from numerous sources, including several scholarly texts, the Associated Press, and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The revelation comes on the heels of another CNN KFile investigation, which found more than

Liberals and progressives hate any non-white who supports conservatives — even a toddler. On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee commenced its confirmation hearing of Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), their longtime colleague in the Senate and the former attorney general of Alabama. Prior to the proceedings, Sessions, whom President-elect Donald Trump has nominated for U.S. attorney general, visited with family, who came to support him in the biggest job interview of his life. Of the entire assembled Sessions clan, one family member in particular stood out to MTV News correspondent Ira Madison III. This reporter found it troubling that the

Donald Trump will be sworn in one week from tomorrow as the 44th president of the United States, and his nemesis Rosie O´Donnell has now gone into overdrive trying to find a way to stop him from taking office. On Wednesday, O´Donnell unveiled her latest plan to delay the inauguration, calling for the implementation of a military government and the suspension of all laws in the United States until Trump has been cleared of any role in the Russian hacking scandal. ´I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW - DELAYING THE INAUGURATION - UNTIL TRUMP IS "CLEARED" OF ALL CHARGES,´ wrote O´Donnell, who

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google

Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."
