The fate of Jay Carney
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 7/6/2014 10:13:43 AM

After leaving the White House with a reputation for telling lies, what are the career options open for Jay Carney? Once upon a time, he was an actual reporter who gathered news and was supposed to be believed, working for Time Magazine, which some readers may remember used to be a major publication. According to the Daily Caller, next stop: MSNBC (snip)it is too early to shed any tears for Jay. After all, there are many hundreds of campuses where students pay mandatory “student activity fees” in the hundreds of dollars each, that are used to hire outside speakers to come

Carney´s move to the truth-challenged MessNBC seems wholly appropriate. Any college students´ association that hires him as a speaker ought to have their heads examined.

"...No one knows what it´s like to be hated
To be fated to telling only lies...." (Pete Townshend, "Behind Blue Eyes")

That is fitting. Based on history, people who watch MSNBC are OK with being lied to. It makes them feel good to live in a fantasy world where the truth can´t interfere...

He no doubt took the job with visions of vaulting from wet-behind-the-ears whiz kid at a once-relevant Time Magazine to a David Gergen-type DC elder statesman who had seen it all and would spend the rest of his days stroking his chin and pontificating for pay.

But then one of two things happened:

1) He willingly joined a cabal of hard-core leftists for whom objective truth could be willed into nonexistence and a sycophant press could be used to maximum advantage.

2) He was, by many reliable accounts, rarely given access to the inner circle, especially the president for whom he claimed to speak. He soldiered on in his job, thinking of the inevitable day he would leave the WH and cash in. Despite his lack of contact with his boss he still adopted Obama´s smug, obtuse, argumentative and juvenile attitude, refusing to concede the most basic and obvious of facts.

In either scenario he demonstrated beyond doubt his absolute baseness of character.

After an apprenticeship in lying for political advantage, it only makes sense to move on to lying for political advantage and lotsa money. It´s the way of Obamaworld.

The recent student demonstrations in Colorado against curriculum changes that present a more positive view of America don’t bother me at all. Dollars to donuts they were organized by the teachers. (snip) when you remove the coercion, the dependence upon a teacher for a grade, a letter of recommendation for college entrance, help with getting the classes one wants, and of course, a really big one, the teacher or professor being able to ridicule a student’s beliefs in front of classmates, you often get a star.

In setting out to write my book “You Lie!” my initial goal was to chronicle Barack Obama’s major deceptions. In doing so, alas, I ended up writing the history of the presidency. (snip) To keep the demagogues out of their knife drawers, Obama appointed Eric Holder attorney general. A Ron Brown protégé, Holder came of age in the minority huckster wards of D.C., the most relentlessly corrupt slice of political America since Boss Tweed hung up his Tammany money belt more than a century earlier. Holder did not disappoint. In his very first public act as attorney general, he showed his

The National Geographic Magazine, a publication heretofore not noted for satirical excellence, has published an article that easily could have appeared in The Onion. In fact, it begins by quoting that satirical publication as an authority. In Colorful World of Birding Has Conspicuous Lack of People of Color, author Martha Hamilton engages in hand-wringing and navel-gazing (yes, they can be done simultaneously, and for all I know, this might be good exercise) over the relative lack of “people of color” (as opposed to the colorless majority) out looking for exotic avian life.

Official German body says

With traditional sexual morality discarded, the last taboo is under attack by the fairness mafia. The UK Telegraph reports: Laws banning incest between brothers and sisters in Germany could be scrapped after a government ethics committee said the they were an unacceptable intrusion into the right to sexual self-determination. “Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo,” the German Ethics Council said in a statement. “The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family.”

As concerned climatics infested New York and other centers of first-world self-concern on the day before the first day of autumn to express their worries about seasonal change, night into day, and other climate/weather cycles they displayed their usual hypocrisy, selfishness and oh yes, ignorance. Listen again as gazillionaire elitists such as Robert F. Kennedy Junior (son of/member of the fabled, extremely wealthy Kennedy clan) and actor Leonardo DiCaprio babble about saving our planet. "Climate change is compromising the very livability of our planet," the actor, sporting a long, scraggly beard and long hair pulled back into a bun, said as he

   

 



 
State Department won´t say how missing
records for $6 billion were stored
American Thinker, by Lee Cary    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 9/25/2014 7:36:54 AM     Post Reply
A spokesperson for the State Department refuses to say if any missing contract files from March 2008 - March 2014 were stored electronically. The American Thinker began covering the case of the missing records for $6 billion on April 5, 2014, soon after the State Department’s Office of Inspector General released two unclassified memos dated March 20, 2014. (snip)The fact that Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State for four of the six years covered by the missing files may explain the reluctance of the State Department to answer simple, factual inquiries about the missing records.

The plot to seize the speakership
from John Boehner
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 9/24/2014 1:48:34 PM     Post Reply
Ever since the Republicans regained control of the House in 2010, some conservatives have sought to replace Rep. John Boehner as speaker. Boehner has managed to fight off challenges to his leadership in the past. But there appears to be a serious revolt brewing among a growing number of conservatives who are unhappy with Boehner´s approach to the 2014 mid terms. The Hill thinks that the current challenge to Boehner is the most serious to date: The strategy — for now — seems disorganized and fluid: Find a way to push the Speaker’s race to a second ballot, create turmoil in the conference,

After a memorial to the Ferguson, MO man who was shot by a white police officer was destroyed by fire on Tuesday afternoon, protestors gathered in downtown Ferguson and proceeded to loot a beauty supply store for the 3rd time. (snip)An unruly crowd gathered around 9 p.m. local time Tuesday on Canfield Drive in Ferguson, close to where the memorial site burned down earlier in the day, police said. The crowd then made its way towards Beauty Town on West Florissant Avenue and began to loot the store. Police arrived at the beauty store quickly and were able to calm down

Navy used 47 Tomahawks last night,
47% of planned 2015 purchases
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 9/23/2014 9:23:50 AM     Post Reply
Last night’s air strikes against ISIS in Syria used up 47 Tomahawk missiles. The Tomahawk is an extremely effective weapon, capable of delivering its ordnance precisely, without risking a pilot’s life. But the defense cuts of the Obama administration call for procuring only one hundred Tomahawks next year. Christopher Cavas of Defense News reported last May: Weapons procurement showed striking reductions from last year’s plans. Then, the Navy planned to buy 980 Tactical Tomahawks, the primary cruise missile in use throughout the fleet. The new plan shows only 100 missiles in 2015 and none thereafter.

Rotherham has made its splash, had its fifteen minutes and is gone, assuredly with a sigh of relief from the media and politicians on both sides of the big pond. For thirteen years, something on the order of 1400 girls in Rotherham, a typical Midlands industrial city of roughly a quarter-million, were carefully groomed and then turned out as whores by members of the city’s Pakistani Muslim minority. The motive of the Muslims is transparent: Mohammed said it was okay. The reaction of the city’s populace is less so. For thirteen years, not a government official, not a policeman, not a

President Obama and his fellow Democrats are scheming to use immigration and housing policy to fulfill their dream to fundamentally transform America forever. (snip) Obama is transforming America through immigration. There is an even more calculated policy being followed. To see the impact look at a map: The influx into the south is changing the political alignment in southern states. The South has been a bastion for Republicans for years but that has made it a target and it is under assault.

Barack Obama is destined to be the greatest flop in American presidential history. He is, in every sense of the word, an utter failure. Consider first his signature achievement, Obamacare. Not only has Obama had to delay implementation, creating a perfect precedent for his Republican successor to do the same, but the law is more unpopular today than it has ever been according to all polling data. (snip)Obama, who “won” the Nobel Peace Prize almost as soon as he took office, is now officially a warmonger president – but one who leads from behind and rejects every attempt to form a national

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
