Hagel confirmation vote looms
despite myriad controversies

Associated Press, by Adam Kredo

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 2/26/2013 6:58:48 AM

A sharply divided Senate is scheduled to cast a final vote on the contested nomination of secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel Tuesday, ending a months-long battle that has centered on the nominee’s controversial past statements. Hagel, a former Republican Nebraska senator, faced criticism from Republicans and some Democrats immediately following his nomination by the president last month. Critics have accused Hagel of being anti-Semitic, overtly hostile to Israel, and cozy with Iran’s ruling regime, which has endorsed him.

McCai and Graham,the leading voices of opposition have thrown in the towel even though more revelations about Hagel taking money from terror groups comes out more every day.Hagel could wear a turbin to these hearings and still get approved.

Hagel should not be confirmed as secretary of defense. I cannot imagine anyone being confirmed after the disastrous hearings he had and the glowing endorsement from Iran, of all places... What stupid times we live in. Washington DC is further and further out of touch with common sense.

These aren´t just stupid times, they´re bizarro world, parallel universe times. Weird is normal. Good is evil. White is black. Everything has been turned upside down. And worst of all, we´re being forced by the cognoscenti to say this is the way it should be.

Well, I won´t. This isn´t just about an idiotic nominee. It´s really about whether we´re going to continue to capitulate to this insanity without a fight.

Hagel on Meet the Press - 2015

DAVID GREGORY: Today on Meet the Press, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.
HAGEL: Morning, Dave.
GREGORY: Two years since you exposed yourself to the media, Mr. Secretary?
HAGEL: It was just that one time with the blonde from CNN, Dave.
GREGORY: You mothballed and quarantined the navy’s flattops, sir? Why?
HAGEL: The World Health Organization declared American imperialism a contagion, Dave. The ships were identified as carriers.
GREGORY: The Times reports you asked the U.N. to list America as a state sponsor of terrorism.
HAGEL: True, Dave. Cutting off their foreign markets will sink American firearms and ammunition manufacturers. There’s more than one way to skin the Second Amendment cat.
GREGORY: Comment on last year’s nuclear exchange between Iran and Israel.
HAGEL: Sure, the two countries are radioactive slag, now. But Iran and Israel are finally at peace.
GREGORY: Can we stop nuclear proliferation, sir?
HAGEL: Actually, we´re facilitating it to level the international playing field, Dave. I’ve distributed our entire stockpile of nukes to anyone out there who wanted one. It’s a logical extension of the president’s redistributionist views.
GREGORY: You held none back for ourselves?
HAGEL: No. We’ve shown we can’t be trusted with such power.
GREGORY: You’ve been advocating reconstitution of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Why?
HAGEL: The world was never safer than when America was checked by the Soviets.
GREGORY: Finally, what’s behind our new alliance with China that’s seen the port of Los Angeles become a naval base for the People’s Republic?
HAGEL: Concern about a newly militaristic Japan, Dave. Last thing we need is an Asian state with world designs.
GREGORY: Thanks for stopping by, Mr. Secretary.

The offering of Kerry and now Hagel are more of Ozero´s "in your face" moves, as are the Marxists and Islamists among his "czars."
Disgraceful for America.. but worse, evil and freedom-threatening.

It was reported a couple of weeks ag that more military in VA voted for the "won" than Romney in November. We also have two of the most liberal Senators , Warner and Kaine. The supposedly intelligent voters of my state, Virginia, elected them; many of those votes were from members of the military.
I served in the Army and grew up with a father who served in the Air Force for over twenty years. I want to feel bad for our military families but too many of them voted for the man in the WH and liberal Senators. They have brought this curse on US.

# 6 - very good !!

Hagel was chosen for one reason - To dismantle our military and destroy our ability to defend ourselves. ALIbama hates the military and one of his marxist goals is to weaken and ultimately destroy it.

Hagel has no more qualifications to be Secretary of Defense than Kerry has to be Secretary of State. ZERO !!

Any L-dotter who fails to call their Senators is complicit if Hagel gets this position. We may not have enough votes to stop him, but it´s simply wrong not to try, and that´s the message every Senator needs to hear.

Thank you #6 for homor to go along with how this man thinks. If and when UpChuck Hagel is confirmed he will be the worst SecDef since little Willy Cohen. I am glad that I´m retired from the Navy and don´t have to be under the command of the likes of Panetta, soon to be Hagel and the O´Clown. BTW is Calypso "Mother Wheel" Louis FarraCON likes Hagel you know something about him stinks.

As Hillary would say "What difference does it make?" We held up his confirmation for what? a week? He got a chance to work on his suntan. The result is the same. A totally unqualified candidate is confirmed. I had to hold my nose and vote for McCain. When is he retiring again?

Why are the dems so good at screwing us and the country and we truth tellers just suck?

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013.

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
