Lying in State
National Review Online, by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 5/12/2013 7:45:47 PM

My take on Benghazi developments can be found here, but there are any number of other pieces an informed person should take a gander at. I’d like to suggest reading the ABC News story and Steve Hayes’ Weekly Standard piece on the State-scrubbed talking-points in conjunction with Andy McCarthy’s column on the Libyan president Mohammed Magarief. Victoria Nuland and the State Department vacuumed any real “intelligence” out of the CIA talking-points like Dr Kermit Gosnell suctioning the brains out of Philadelphia babies. Why would they do this? The nearest thing to any genuine rationale that was offered was this:

From the first time I saw Nuland speaking for the State Department, I wondered how on earth she ended up there. Everything about her seemed wrong. Now e know that beyond her obvious but ultimately superficial shortcomings, she was another lying apparatchnik whose only interest was protecting Hillary and Obie.

She should be gone. She should never have been there, but she is typical so another would proably have been as bad or worse. Obie and Hill have stuck our wonderful country with some traitorous types.

Steyn sees the world with such clarity. His overarching comment from an earlier column...
´´A real government would be scrambling furiously to see what it could do to rescue its people.´´

This is really simple stuff, decision-wise. No brainers, in fact, as Steyn points out above. But somehow this regime manages to muck it up. Why? IMO, in every case, they are motivated by their own political concerns, not the best interests of this great nation. It´s that simple. For every jaw dropping decision, there is a political calculus in play that explains it. From Keystone to Philly Black Panthers to Benghazi... Jaw droppers, every one of them.

Mark, next time consider starting here: We are stuck defining Obama. He slips away from meaning. Go farther than call him"mere liar." Call him a traitor. Certainly he is advanced Leftist. He is a marxist-communist [a type committed even to the violent overthrow of America]. He is a shahada ring wearing, Muslim-wahabbist "sympathizer". Such a one is committed to a world wide caliphate; and we have his statement that "The future MUST NOT belong to one who slanders the prophet of Allah." We have the plan of Benghazi and the dhimmifying of Christians´ careers in the military because they are now "terrorists." You have his hip latter day bathouse frequenting homosexuality. Homosexuality, if it can influence sweeping non-traditional laws, can be a form of sexual anarchy. On and on with this. To find ourselves considering a Leftist-Anarchist-traitor- and domestic enemy, functioning at the highest political and ruling class level imaginable at any time in our history. Therefore Mark, your terms "liar" and "lying" are understatements when used by a wordsmith like you. Unless you are laying a foundation. Because many of us know we are dealing with "something" capable of hiding in plain sight, flummoxing or deluding the masses into seeing what Chris Matthews once called "a perfect poitician." Given such an anti-American "magical" character, associated with Cloward Piven overload plans and fairness cons, a "who could hang a name on you" type, an illegal alien to boot, don´t you at some point have to ask yourself: "WHO IS THIS LIAR AND WHAT IS THE NATURE OF HIS GAME?"

Magnificent.

The truth matters, as one man said. We cannot let them get away with these lies. If we do, we are in some small way complicit with their evil.

The Republican who can most effectively convey these sentiments to the American public will win the nomination, and the election in 2016.

Investigators trying to solve the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner have concluded that one of the pilots or someone else with flying experience hijacked the missing Boeing 777 and steered it off course, according to a Malaysian government official. The official, who is involved in the investigation, told The Associated Press that no motive has been established, and it is not yet clear where the plane was taken. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. The official said that hijacking was no longer a theory. "It is conclusive."

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Probe
Sharpens Focus on Sabotage
Wall Street Journal, by Andy Pazstor & Jon Ostrower    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/14/2014 10:11:01 PM     Post Reply
The investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU +2.13% Flight 370 sharpened its focus on sabotage, according to aviation and industry officials, amid strong indications that one or more people on the plane deliberately changed its course and tried to mask its location. Officials suspect two different systems were shut off after the plane took off last weekend, one shortly after the other, people familiar with the investigation said. About an hour into the flight, the plane´s transponders stopped functioning, making it much more difficult for air-traffic control personnel to track or identify it via radar.

U.S. to relinquish remaining

U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web. Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash last year to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance. The change would end the long-running contract between the Commerce Department and the

Constitution: Right now, the public would not support the cure the Framers provided for a president who skirts the laws. But what might the charges against President Obama look like? If Americans could read for themselves specific articles of impeachment against Obama, would they really think the charges were trumped up, as polls suggest and the media insist is the case? Has, for instance, the president "failed without lawful cause or excuse to produce papers and things as directed by duly authorized subpoenas issued by ... the House of Representatives"? Fact: The Obama administration has withheld plenty of materials requested in House Oversight

Obama Cuts Military Pensions,

ObamaCare: The administration plans to cut the military pensions of those who served their country while giving public employees a break by exempting their ObamaCare subsidies from sequestration. On the heels of announcing that Army troop levels will be cut below pre-World War II levels, the Military Times has reported that the Obama administration is planning to reduce military pension costs by 10% by converting part of their retirement to 401(k)-like defined-contribution plans from defined-benefit plans. What makes this interesting is that it affects military retirees and members of the military who are non-union and therefore can´t strike or engage in collective

Corruption: While the Justice Department was busy compiling a case against Obama critic Dinesh D´Souza for minor campaign-law violations, it was blocking a more troubling probe involving the Senate´s top Democrat. On Thursday, ABC News and the Washington Times reported that local Utah prosecutors had found evidence pointing to possible illegal campaign contributions and other questionable financial deals involving both Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Utah´s junior Republican senator, Mike Lee. But despite working with the FBI, they´ve been blocked from moving that case forward by a Justice Department that has sat on it for months, refusing to let

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west.

Malaysia Airlines ´ missing jet transmitted its location repeatedly to satellites over the course of five hours after it disappeared from radar, people briefed on the matter said, as searchers zeroed in on new target areas hundreds of miles west of the plane´s original course. The satellites also received speed and altitude information about the plane from its intermittent "pings," the people said. The final ping was sent from over water, at what one of these people called a normal cruising altitude. They added that it was unclear why the pings stopped. One of the people, an industry official, said it

Liberty: President Obama wants Democrats to reclaim the word "freedom" as their own. But what he describes as freedom is little more than deeper dependence on government. Not exactly what the Founders had in mind. In a recent speech to the Democratic National Committee, the president lamented that "we´ve let the other side define the word ´freedom´ for too long." Then, as he often does, Obama set up a straw man argument, claiming to Republicans freedom means "what´s in it for me?" or "I´ve got no obligations to anybody." So what is "freedom," Mr. Obama? "Freedom," he said, "is the peace of mind

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained. Obama was careful to specify that people who can´t afford Obamacare will not suffer a

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans."

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman.

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
