Evan´s Law of Inadequate Paranoia
Power Line, by Steven Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:previouslyon24, 2/18/2014 10:34:45 PM

Scott has written here some months ago about Diana West’s provocative book American Betrayal, which has excited considerable criticism from fellow conservatives. I have nothing to add to this controversy now, but I did stumble across this eight-minute video of my first mentor M. Stanton Evans introducing Diana at a recent dinner for Diana in New York. Take in the first few minutes and you’ll get a good helping of Stan’s droll humor, culminating in his “Law of Inadequate Paranoia.” You’l understand why so many are devoted to him.

Comments:
I´ve not understood the criticisms of Diana West´s new book. Fortunately, M. Stanton Evans has helped right the wrongs against her.

For anyone interested in a complete video of the award ceremony honoring Ms West that night it, plus more provocative thoughts by her, can be found at her website: http://dianawest.net/Home/tabid/36/EntryId/2710/The-Mightier-Pen-Award-2013.aspx

Just for the record I am a great fan of Ms West and highly recommend her work "American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation´s Character". It just might change your thinking about our relationship with Soviet Russia during the admin of FDR and during the so-called Cold War.

Snapshots in Time

Rudyard Kipling in Captain’s Courageous described one boy’s youth during one period of time as a misguided exercise in the mis-use of power. I don’t recall the name of the man who told me that a life is a journey on a railroad train that having emerged from an infinitely long and dark tunnel is traveling for a while in the light, heading for an infinitely long and dark tunnel not far ahead. Experience is made of the scenes you can see changing out the windows. It is a lovely soft grey pre-dawn in this far corner of the fable called Oregon, and a time when back in the day this now old man once began trout fishing trips

Charles Koch: business giant, bogeyman,
benefactor and elusive (until now)
-- exclusive interview
Wichita Business Journal (KS), by Daniel McCoy    Original Article

To the American business world, he’s a giant — head of the nation’s second largest private company. To the political world, he is, by turns, the country’s No. 1 bogeyman and benefactor. To Wichita, he is the Wizard of Oz — ever-present yet rarely seen, influential but invisible. To the media, and by extension the public, Charles Koch is elusive and inscrutable. Until now.

If there is one thread that weaves throughout the conservative landscape it is this: if Barack Hussein Obama were a Republican, impeachment proceedings would have been seriously considered long ago, and the general mass media would have been providing the grist for it. Here’s the argument that seems the most common illustration: If George W. Bush had decided to issue congress-be-damned executive orders or agency authorization decisions concerning such major areas as immigration, health care, guns, minimum wage, wind farms, global warming, presidential records, natural gas, government travel expenses, establishing bureaucracies, Libya, abortion, pursue accession to the U.N. Law of the Sea Convention, Benghazi – - and this is just a

Kerry´s Global Warning WMD
Comparison Merits Firing
Investors Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: previouslyon24- 2/18/2014 10:46:01 PM     Post Reply
Foreign Policy: John Kerry calls global warming "the world´s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Has the secretary of state forgotten the world´s real WMDs? Or is he just off his medication? There´s a long list of Cabinet secretaries and senior aides to President Obama who have failed the nation so resoundingly they should be shown the door. But Secretary John Kerry, who dumped his military decorations in 1971 and was dumped by voters as a presidential candidate in 2004, should definitely be the first one out. In a pathetic attempt to distract from the Obama administration's foreign policy failures,

Oregon’s Czar for All Seasons
Oregon Magazine, by Art Hyland    Original Article
Posted By: previouslyon24- 2/6/2014 3:25:18 PM     Post Reply
Democrats were ecstatic in 2010 when they learned that ex-Governor Kitzhaber was still willing to run for office again. No reason to vet someone with his liberal experience and history. It was basically anyone but a Republican, something of a mantra in Oregon politics. But it seems that Oregon has replicated the same mistake the voters did with the Presidency: elect a Czar instead. Chris Dudley, the governor’s opponent, remember him? No matter what you might have thought of him, he would never have ok’d a Cover Oregon. But I digress.

Bill Henck: Inside the IRS
Power Line, by Scott Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: previouslyon24- 2/6/2014 12:13:09 PM     Post Reply
As noted at the top, William Henck has worked inside the IRS Office of the General Counsel as an attorney for over 26 years. Although it goes over some old ground, we submit the following personal account by Mr. Henck for the consideration of readers in the context of current controversies without further comment. He writes: I have been an attorney in the IRS Office of Chief Counsel for over 26 years. Over a number of years, I have attempted, largely unsuccessfully, to alert the public to abuse within the IRS.

Anarchy (or not) for Christmas

“Why is it we fought against tyrannical, socialist enemies (during hot and cold wars) only to systematically and gradually adopt the same senseless governing philosophies. . .” It’s possible that some of the most well-adjusted people in the world belong to the Mafia. And why not, given that normal, external rules and convention are completely ignored in favor of doing, and getting by with whatever it takes to get the job done. If it means bribery, extortion, or threatening to kill, that’s just part of their routine measures of “persuasion.” Their lifestyle works so well they have little reason to doubt their own sense of well-being.

Borrowed Eloquence

Is Barack Obama really the somewhat interesting guy who wrote Dreams From My Father? I doubt it. I don’t say Bill Ayers necessarily wrote the book, but I doubt that it was Obama. He has yet to formulate a political thought in an even slightly original way. Hackneyed phrases and deadening cliches are the essential medium of his expression. His speeches are like New York Times editorials. They ought to be accompanied by a warning: Reading may kill brain cells. There is no premium on originality in political rhetoric, but Obama tests the limits. He extends the concept of recycling into previously uncharted territory.

Liars as Leaders

Obama: “If you like your insurance plan, you can keep it.” Hillary: “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had NOTHING to do with…” The media has supported these liars. The truth apparently does not matter to the people at CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, PBS, NY Times, et al. They want their chosen leaders no matter the consequences.

The AP Misreports
the Debt Ceiling
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: previouslyon24- 10/15/2013 9:51:18 AM     Post Reply
I wrote here that no matter what happens with the debt limit, the federal government will not default on its debt obligations. I also noted here that Moody’s–which certainly ought to know–agrees that there is zero chance of default on Treasury bonds. In recent days, many more commentators have made the same point. The government is legally obligated to recognize its debt obligations, and the existing $17 trillion debt can be serviced on less than ten percent of federal revenue. So there simply can’t be a default.

Let´s balance the Budget

As many of you know, the federal budget is said to be out of control. I said this back when I was a senator from the great city of Chicago and state of Illinois, where I learned how governments can actually run properly. But what I meant wasn’t what you might think. I’m one step ahead of all of you, if you pardon my audacity. What I found out in my time at the Illinois statehouse and on the streets of Chicago is that you let your enemies do the dirty work.

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

The world must shift to solar and wind
power rapidly to avoid catastrophic global

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
