Cliven Bundy, Terrorist? Harry Reid, Fucking Moron! »

If there was ever any doubt that Senator Harry Reid is a dangerous, twisted person, he removed any doubt with this bit of demagoguery:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.”

“They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”

Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing fees, but they backed down Saturday due to safety concerns.

This is an affront to every American. Reid has spent too much time in Washington and needs to go back to Nevada. Read the rest

Hey Obama, You Can’t Polish a Turd »

Watching Obama’s desperate, hysterical attempt today to sell Obamacare, I was reminded of the old Navy saying, “you can’t polish a turd.” If you are handed a piece of festering shit, no matter how hard you rub, you can’t make it shine. All you do is smear the smelly clump into an equally disgusting pile of cep.

Poor Obama hasn’t learned that lesson. He insisted that the plan is working swell:

Ballocks!! It is one thing to believe that your chocolate pudding is magnificent. But if it is made with cows hit, it still tastes like manure. Read the rest

OK Neocons, Which Is It? »

Have you seen the new video of Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula marching around and chanting, “Death to America?”

Finally, frigging CNN is talking about something other than the goddamned missing plane:

A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.

U.S. officials won’t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. Read the rest

When It Comes to Russia, Wheelchair Warriors Want a Brawl »

The only thing worse than an Arm Chair Quarterback is a Wheelchair Warrior. And I’m not talking about US military personnel wounded in battle and left disabled. The preeminent Wheelchair Warrior is Charles Krauthammer. He was on Bret Baier’s Special Report tonight and illustrated with his diatribe on Ukraine why he is both foolish and dangerous. Here’s the full panel discussion:

Charles is not alone. He is in bed with McCain on this. He wants to send arms to the Ukrainians who oppose the Russians. Read the rest

More on the Non Reaction in the US to Sy Hersh’s Important Piece »

I am going to keep flogging this dog. Why? Because Barack Obama tried to take us to war in Syria on a lie. Watching the mainstream media stay mute in the aftermath of the publication of Sy’s piece is instructive and disturbing. Their mass refusal to simply deal with the facts presented by Sy stands in stark contrast to the reaction in Europe and Turkey. The Turkish Government is furious. They are calling Sy a liar and a senile has been. Yet, Sy did not create nor post on You Tube the recording of Turkish officials talking about staging an attack to make it appear that it was carried out by the Syrian Government. The Turks themselves provided the evidence that corroborates Sy’s reporting.

Let’s review the evidence:

First, the June 20th talking points prepared for the Deputy Director of DIA states:

that al-Nusra maintained a sarin production cell: its programme, . . . was ‘the most advanced sarin plot since al-Qaida’s pre-9/11 effort’. (According to a Defense Department consultant, US intelligence has long known that al-Qaida experimented with chemical weapons, and has a video of one of its gas experiments with dogs.) The DIA paper went on: ‘Previous IC [intelligence community] focus had been almost entirely on Syrian CW [chemical weapons] stockpiles; now we see ANF attempting to make its own CW … Al-Nusrah Front’s relative freedom of operation within Syria leads us to assess the group’s CW aspirations will be difficult to disrupt in the future.’

Second, per one of Sy’s sources, the US intel community was reporting in late July/early August 2013 that Turkey’s leaders, distraught over the failing fortunes of the Islamist rebels in Turkey, were planning an event that would compel the United States to intervene in Syria. Read the rest

Protect Obama At All Costs, Ignore Sy Hersh »

Which of the following matters to US National Security:

1. Oscar Pistorius breaks down weeping on the witness stand while describing how he shot his model girlfriend.

2. Malaysian Flight 370 is still missing and no one has found a shred of wreckage.

3. Chris Christie remains the target of MSNB, er, the Justice Department over allegations that he’s fat and may have known something about closing a couple of lanes on the George Washington Bridge.

4. Sean Hannity berates a American muslim for protesting leaflets passed out at his kids’ elementary school advertising an Easter Egg hunt.

5. Sy Hersh exposes the failed attempt of Barack Obama to insert the United States into the civil war in Syria by lying to the American people about who used chemical agent similar to sarin against Syrian civilians in August 2013. In addition, Sy details the Obama Administration’s covert operation, in league with the Brits, to help Turkey arm Syrian rebels, including members of Al Qaeda.

The answer? Malaysian Flight 370? Are you shitting me? Read the rest

Sy Hersh Bombshells Expose Obama’s Fraud in Syria and Benghazi–UPDATE »

Sy Hersh is out today with an explosive, damning piece of investigative journalism that completely dismantles the fable on Syria and Benghazi that President Obama and his national security team, including Hillary Clinton, tried to foist on America.

The article, The Red Line and the Rat Line, is in the London Review of Books. Mr. Hersh once again reminds the world why he is the preeminent investigative journalist. The key revelations are that:

The United States had a covert program, which was disguised as a liaison effort with the Brits, to move weapons from Libya to Syria via Turkey. This program was never briefed to the Congress.

Two months after the September 2012 attack on the CIA installation in Benghazi, the United States suspended the weapons supply program, which in turn angered the Turks and the Saudis.

The US intelligence community, the DIA specifically, knew as early as June 2013 that Syrian Islamic extremists fighting against President Assad had an active program to produce and use sarin and were receiving support from the Turks.

By the summer of 2013, the Turks were worried that the tide had turned against the Syrian rebels and decided to create an incident that would compel the United States to take military action.

Within days of the 21 August attack, British intelligence informed the United States, specifically the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, that the sarin used had come from the rebels, not the Syrian Government.

The US military drew their own red line and refused to proceed with an attack in Syria, which is why Obama reversed course so suddenly and turned to Congress.

The Obamacare Turd Sandwich »

The delusion of Barack Obama and his disciples is alarming. They genuinely believe that they have turned the corner on the “problems” with Obamacare and that the only thing left to do is simply remind Americans of that this is a great law and fixes the problem of people not being able to get health insurance. This is beyond whistling past the graveyard.

Radio shock jocks, Opie and Anthony, are not fans of Fox News nor are they tea party stalwarts. Listen to their profane take on having their insurance cancelled:

The Despicable Michael Morrell »

I look at former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morrell and all I see is a liar and a fraud. His willingness to play fast and loose with facts was on public display yesterday during the 2 April hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Let’s review the facts courtesy of Sharyl Atkisson’s blog:

At today’s hearing, Morell stated that the C.I.A. believed then, and that he still believes, “some of the attackers” were “affiliated with al Qaeda.” That information, too, was edited out of the talking points but Morell said he was not responsible for that word change.

“I did not take al Qaeda from the talking points,” Morell said. When asked who did, he answered, “The group of officers from our office of Congressional affairs and our office of public affairs.”

Previously, government officials had vehemently denied that any public affairs officials made any edits to the talking points.

Morrell apparently fancies himself a lawyer given his verbal gymnastics. Read the rest

7 Million Sign Up for Obamacare—APRIL FOOLS!!! »

Hysterical. What a hoot. Obama and team, in the “fool” spirit of 1 April, got their gag game on and went out before cameras insisting that a gazillion people had signed up for the ironically named, Affordable Care Act. Got to show some love to Barack Obama and company for their shrewd since of humor. For the past six months nobody on the White House staff or at Health and Human Services knew anything about the number of folks who had actually signed up. But now, on April first, they suddenly have perfect info? They still can’t tell you who has paid and how many of those signing up are actually replacing plans they were forced to drop because of Obamacare, but who cares? All that matters is that they tell the joke with a straight face.

PUHLEAZE!! This is a heaping, steaming pile of bullshit. Sort of like marching at the rear of the American Royal parade. You have no alternative but to stride thru a collection of horse manure and cow shit.

If I bake you a pie made of human feces, it does not matter how much sugar I sprinkle on top or how insistently I tell you it is the best goddamn pie you’ve ever eaten. One immutable fact remains–a shit pie is a shit pie. Read the rest

Benghazi Ain’t Going Away »

Democrats desperate to make the debacle of Benghazi go away are not having a good week. Two stories in the news so far and, by this Sunday, there will be a new blockbuster twist. First, there is the drama surrounding former Deputy Director of the CIA, Mike Morrell. Morrell is on the hot seat for his role in twisting the CIA talking points about the attack in Benghazi in September 2012–Morrell specifically removed language linking the attack to Al Qaeda and Islamic extremists. Instead, as we now know, he watered down the analyst’s assertion about the role of Al Qaeda in the attack as to render the talking points meaningless.

Here is what the analyst initially wrote:

The crowd almost certainly was a mix of individuals from across many sectors of Libyan society. That being said, we do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qa’ida participated in the attack.

Morrell stepped in and changed the fundamental meaning with this edit:

The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the US Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the US Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.

Morrell’s edit had only one purpose–to immunize the Obama Administration against the fact that elements of Al Qaeda had carried out a successful terrorist attack. Morrell decided to give the White House political cover. Read the rest

Noah. Do You Give a Shit? »

I am watching with fascination the reaction to the new piece of Hollywood bullshit, NOAH. According to Variety’s Justin Chang, the movie is just brilliant:

Watching “Noah,” which makes a few concessions to epic fantasy/blockbuster conventions without sacrificing its fundamental seriousness and moral urgency, you get the feeling that Aronofsky (who wrote the script with his regular collaborator Ari Handel) read the Genesis account of Noah’s life and saw in it, perhaps, a vessel for some of the themes and obsessions that have haunted him his entire career. This is a director whose characters often know they are destined for greatness, but for whom greatness proves a terrible burden; to watch “Noah” is to recognize the tortured sensibility behind the lurching attempts at transcendence in “The Fountain,” the unnerving altered states of “Requiem for a Dream,” the brutal physical and spiritual sacrifices endured by the protagonists of “The Wrestler” and “Black Swan.” You also sense that Aronofsky realized there was a place for his anguished dramatics and trippy aesthetics in the annals of great religious artwork, and that there was no reason why the challenge of biblical interpretation should be off-limits to a filmmaker just because he happens to be a staunch environmentalist, a brilliant fantasist and, yes, a self-avowed atheist.

All of this should trouble the sort of Christian, I suppose, who imagines that the proper care of the Earth is strictly the domain of those godless liberal tree-huggers; that our readings of the Bible should never stir in us a sense of wonder or supernatural possibility; and that the only artists who could possibly extract anything of value from a religious text are those who readily subscribe to its teachings. To believe such a thing, of course, is to ignore one of the great recurring themes of Scripture, which is that God can and does use the most unlikely of individuals to glorify His name and advance His purposes, and is indeed rather fond of subverting our prejudices about who and what is good, moral and worthy of emulation.

And then there is the reaction of Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey: Read the rest

Mike Rogers’ Goes Delusional »

News came late Thursday night that the Michigan Republican Congressman Mike Rogers, who chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, is bowing out and plans to launch a new career as a talk radio guy. What a laugh!

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers plans to leave Congress after this year to host a talk radio show for Cumulus Media Inc, the Michigan congressman said on Friday.

“I had a career before politics and always planned to have one after. The genius of our institutions is they are not dependent on the individual temporary occupants privileged to serve. That is why I have decided not to seek re-election to Congress in 2014,” the Republican said in a statement.

Speaking earlier to a Detroit radio station, Rogers said he plans to start his Cumulus show in January, the Detroit News reported. Read the rest

Obama’s Head is Where? »

More tough talk today from junior birdman, Barky O’Bama. Maybe we should concede that he is an aspiring Irish comedian–a congenial guy who tells great stories that make people laugh, but has zero heft. Leave it to cartoonist Michael Ramirez to eviscerate him for his foolishness:

I suppose it is appropriate that Obama is in Rome today. He is certainly doing a good impression of Emperor Nero, who fiddled away on self-indulgence while Rome burned. Read the rest

Obama and Europe Act Like 12 Year Old Girls–UPDATE »

For those of you who once were 12 year old girls and for those, like me, who have played the father role for a 12 year old, the following headline will send chills up your spine:

World Leaders Will Exclude Putin From Summit Meeting

Oh SNAP you bitches. Really? This is what foreign relations have become–world leaders acting like a gaggle of early adolescents with raging hormones pitching a bitch fit at the other girl they decided they do not like. Honestly, Putin must be laughing his ass off.

Russia Ready for Hardball, Obama? No Balls »

As I have written before, I fully back Russia’s play in the Crimea and Ukraine. We are not confronted with an ideological foe. The Communist inspired Soviet Union is in the dustbin of history. Good riddance. Nope. We are back to good old fashioned Russian nationalism. Candidly, it is none of our damn business.

Russia distrusts the West for a reason. None of us can recall the Crimea War of the 19th Century but this fact is certain–Britain and France intervened and attacked Russia. They were worried about “power politics.” I believe that Russia is entitled to the same rights and considerations that we, the United States, insist on for ourselves.

If we want to play this bullshit game of moral superiority then let’s start by returning California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas to Mexico. We fucking stole those states. Only in our delusional fantasy world can we pretend that we somehow “liberated” them.

Putting hypocrisy aside for a moment, let’s focus on real politic. Read the rest

Malaysian Air Shiny Object »

I am only posting this as a protest against the endless, inane and stupid commentary by self-professed experts on the fate of the missing Malaysian Air 777. The agendas being pushed are sickening. Here’s the bottom-line–nobody knows. The speculation is ridiculous and meaningless. If this was a terrorist attack it was a completely inept effort. I doubt we will every know the fate of this plane and its passengers.

The goofiest speculation comes courtesy of retired Air Force General Thomas McInerney on Fox News. He’s pushing the line that the plane landed somewhere in Talibanland and is being fueled up for a terrorist assault on Israel or the United States. No evidence, mind you. Just his twisted, silly fantasy.

Was this a planned act. Maybe, but the motive remains totally opaque. Read the rest

Crimea River »

What a ridiculous display of impotent rage by the United States on the eve of Russia’s official annexation of Crimea. I do not know who is more pathetic–Barack Obama, John Kerry or USUN Ambassador Samantha Power. Power should be renamed, “Powerless.” That’s what she is. A windbag hurling invective and empty threats and the Russians from her perch as the US rep at the UN.

U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power accused Russia of violating the U.N. Charter’s key principles that prohibit the use of force to acquire territory and respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all nations – principles she said Moscow agrees with “and defends all around the world, except, it seems, in circumstances that involve Russia.”

“Russia has rejected a resolution that had peace at its heart and law flowing through its veins,” she said. Read the rest

More on the CIA Holding Back an Internal Report »

Congress, both Senate and the House, tend to be a bunch of craven cowards prone to pandering rather than leading. That said, I am giving the benefit of the doubt to Senator Diane Feinstein and doubting the purity of the CIA in the battle over getting the “truth” about the CIA interrogation program.

Let’s be clear about some basic facts. Number one–there is no doubt that torture was excused and some CIA officers, along with contractors, engaged in criminal, reprehensible behavior. They justified it because of the “greater good,” but the men (and maybe some women) who participated in this activity committed crimes that we hung Japanese for in the aftermath of World War II.

Number two–we have testimony from CIA officer Glenn Carle in his book, The Interrogator, and from FBI Agent Ali Soufan about these abuses. Nothing hidden here. It is now out in the public. Unfortunately, we have many members of the Bush Administration excusing and justifying the conduct. It is worth noting that the CIA Officers (and the contractors) were carrying out orders of President George W. Bush.

The fundamental issue here is whether or not Congress has a right to know the truth. Read the rest
