Were Bradley Manning & Daniel Ellsberg Both Sexual Identity Pervs?

Gawker posits the weirdness of Pfc Manning. TNR's Marty Peretz has this interesting turn of phrase in his condemnation of Ellsberg, the psycho perv:
I recognize the importance of Ellsberg's turning. After all, he had been in the small Washington entourage of Robert McNamara and later in the Vietnam circle of Edwin Landsdale. He was an obsessive, of course. And an obsessive on both sides of the issue. The sudden arrival of Julian Assange of WikiLeaks and his documents immediately reminded me of Ellsberg, who in very short order also arrived from wherever he was and whatever he was doing to inform us that Assange also reminded him of himself. And, of course, Pfc. Bradley Manning was hovering in the background with his leak of a rocket attack in Afghanistan. While drawing distinctions, Ellsberg relates the two others to himself.

Ellsberg and Manning may be two huge warning signs not to hire sexual deviants. While the Gawker post is only suggestive, I have memories of my time in the State Department when I served with a fellow who was in the Landsdale inner circle in Vietnam and got to become friends with Ellsberg [I am keeping his name anonymous, as he was and in some circles still is a well-known public figure] This highly reliable friend told me he got to know Ellsberg so well that from time to time he would get envelopes with Polaroid photos from Ellsberg, who spent a lot of time in Bangkok and who more than once would send my colleague Polaroid snaps of Danny-boy himself with Thai boys less than ten years old. Ellsberg seemed to be proud of his "conquests," an attitude which the senior USG official related to me with open disgust.

Ellsberg was sort of like those "Streakers" of that era who would run naked across college campuses, including the University of Michigan where I studied from '66 to '69. Proud of his perversion. And an inveterate attention-seeker, as Marty P so subtlely hints at!

Assange also looks as though he might be a gender-conflicted type, but in this case both Ellsberg, whose psychiatrists' records should have been subpoenaed rather than stolen by Nixon plumbers, and Manning who is a run-of-the-mill confused young tranny-in-the-making, as one Gawker phrase speculates, are both evidence of the hazards of letting pervs into the senior levels of the US government. John Foster Dulles is probably laughing with justification as an attention-whore like Ellsberg once more tries to get into the Hollyweird/academia/MSM good graces and maybe get the klieg lights on his sorry self one more time.

And the Demonrats just suck this sort of shit up and call it Hershey bars!

DCCC Whistling Past Its November Next Graveyard?

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has a convincing argument for why it will retain control of the House by the arcane arithmetic of the inside-the-beltway know-it-alls like Bob Shrum, but one Dem begs to differ:
The DCCC certainly has history on its side, but polls in modern times also have never shown Republicans with as large a lead in generic ballot contests for the House. What's more, though the memo makes a persuasive case on several points, much of its thinking on the Tea Party is happy talk.

The DCCC argues the Tea Party is a huge liability for the GOP because it has resulted in the nomination of extreme candidates who can't win, forced candidates to take radical positions and fueled the presence of some 100 third-party candidacies that will drain support from the GOP nominee. However, Bill Galston, a former deputy domestic policy adviser to President Clinton, begs to differ. He argues in the New Republic that voters more closely identify with the Tea Party than liberals acknowledge, which could mean a surprise in November.

He points to a new survey from the Pew Center that asked voters to position themselves in relation to the two parties. "Voters now place themselves much closer to the Republican Party than to the Democratic Party on this left-right continuum," Mr. Galston writes. "And, startlingly, the electorate places itself a bit closer to the Tea Party movement (which is well to the right of the Republican Party) than to the Democratic Party. All this represents a major shift from five years ago, when mean voters placed themselves exactly halfway between their ideological perceptions of the Democratic and Republican parties."

Galston correctly predicted the Repub victory in 1994 when working in the Clinton WH, but he should also have included the victory of the National League in the All Star Game this year, which always means huge Republican gains in an election year!

Baghdad Bob Gibbs As Stupid as Harry Reid?

A couple weeks back, Harry Reid demonstrated why he should keep his mouth shut. He explained how Ford Motors workers should be grateful for the USG bailout last year. Of course, Ford had managed its business well, and didn't need union jobs to be saved by government intervention---indeed, a bankruptcy might have been better for GM to get them away from their bloated bureaucracy and gigantic mob of union layabouts. Maybe they should emulate Japanese automakers stateside and avoid unions, which are parasitic to a company's profit margins. But yesterday, Obama's clueless oaf of a spokesboy showed how stupid he is by calling out Rush Limbaugh on the issue:
“I’ll let those that sat in the cheap seats a year-and-a-half ago and wanted to walk away” from a milion workers, he continued, “explain to every one of those workers why they made that decision.”

Finally, he wrapped it up: “And then you should ask Mr. Limbaugh — I don’t know what kind of car he drives, but I bet it’s not an F-150.”

The F-150 truck, we should note, is made by Ford, which didn’t get federal rescue funds.


Gibbs shows on a daily basis why Obama is going to be a one-term wonder.

And explaining to the clueless reporters what Rush was actually getting at, which would entail scaling back union-stuffed payrolls through Chapter 11 would be beyond Gibbs ability to explain and the reporters' ability to comprehend.
UPDATE: RUSH responds:
“Gibbs launched into me. You know, folks, I don’t like talking about myself. You are well aware of this. I find it, with this regime, next to impossible. They’re always out attacking me, and Gibbs did yesterday on my remarks about the Obama Volt. We’re going to bury Gibbs today. “
“So Robert Gibbs says ‘Rush Limbaugh and others wanted to walk away.’ We didn’t want to walk away. In fact, I was spokesman for General Motors at the time Obama took over the company. You all remember. They were giving us cars every month — a different kind of car, General Motors products to test drive — and we were driving them around and recommending them.”
“The domestic automobile manufacturers have been forced to design and make cars that fewer and fewer people wanted because the environmentalist wackos had taken control of the regulatory agencies at the federal government — and now, what does Gibbs do? To go out and defend the administration’s car companies, you have to come out and attack me.”
“So you want to buy a Volt, you go right ahead. I am not trying to discourage sales of the product. I’m not trying to be harmful at all, except to this administration. I am trying to expose this administration for what it is and who they are.”
“The Chevrolet Volt is a political statement. When President Obama is driving around in a limousine that has every protection and has the same weight that his current gasoline-powered limousine has and when it’s powered by a battery, then I’ll think about it.”


Gibbs stinks up the entire WH message, so if Obama takes Rush's advice, BHO should bury him. And BHO should get a limo that runs on batteries, or else he remains Stephen Q. Urkel in my POV.

NYT Flubs Becoming Chronic

James Taranto points out the absolute hypocrisy and DNC-controlled bias of The Newspaper of Discord rapidly losing paid circulation through its complete subservience to one party, the Crime Spree called the Democrat Party.
Here's the lead paragraph of a New York Times story from Washington:
S
enate Republicans on Thursday rejected a bill to aid small businesses with expanded loan programs and tax breaks, in a procedural blockade that underscored how fiercely determined the party's leaders are to deny Democrats any further legislative accomplishments ahead of November's midterm elections.

But when you read the story, you find out that the GOP blocked the bill because the Democrats refused to consider amendments on topics "including the estate tax, nuclear loan guarantees, border security and the expiring Bush tax cuts":
Senator George LeMieux, Republican of Florida, who helped draft the bill, said Democrats had taken a bipartisan measure and created a partisan fight over it.
"This small-business bill should pass, and it should pass with relevant amendments," Mr. LeMieux said. "Before I am a Republican, I am a Floridian and an American, and this bill is good for our country."

With tensions running high, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, noted that "if just one" Republican had voted with the Democrats--a pointed reference to Mr. LeMieux--the bill would move forward.
Mr. LeMieux shot back, "Half the truth is no truth at all."
LeMieux has a point. The claim in the lead of the Times story that Republican leaders are "fiercely determined . . . to deny Democrats any further legislative accomplishments ahead of November's midterm elections" may or may not be true, but it certainly isn't proved by anything in this story.

LeMieux is the Crist-appointed Senator who has since rejected his fallen crony and is doing a better job in some ways than Mel Martinez, who inexplicably sought early retirement, showed in four years in the Senate. LeMieux is bad for offshore oil drilling, but otherwise a capable Senator.

Hopefully, Mario Rubio will be much better!

Some JournoList.serv members aren't TOTAL LEFTIST HACKS & actually appreciate Rush

The Daily Caller is Tucker Carlson's revenge on Jon Stewart, as he effectively defangs Journolist just as Andrew Breitbart declawed the criminal ACORN operation. One example of an exception to the usual nasty third-rate mindset of the 400 Dwarfs is singled out by DCaller:
...when Sarah Spitz, a producer for NPR affiliate KCRW, fantasized aloud about watching Rush Limbaugh’s “eyes bug out” if he had a heart attack in front of her (Spitz apologized following TheDC’s reporting on the incident), Toobin defended Limbaugh.

“Rush cannot be replaced. What people miss about Rush is that he is just astonishingly good as a broadcaster. He is compelling, funny, entertaining. I haven’t heard Thompson often, but he’s probably pretty lame. Ingraham is ok. I never listen to Hannity on the radio. But Rush is the man,” he said.

On another occasion, Toobin warned against likening Tea Partiers to Nazis: “For what it’s worth, I think it’s better to stay away from any use of the Nazis in discussions of contemporary politics. I know you weren’t saying conservatives-are-Nazis, but people just shut down when they hear that analogy drawn.”

There were other examples, and Toobin came across as one of the least caustic members of the list.

My daughter had introduced me to Jon Stewart whom I liked because he occasionally took shots at corrupt Dems and did have some interesting book author interviews---even of Republican and Conservative authors. But I only got interested in Rush after a distinguished PhD specialist in social sciences mentioned that Limbaugh was incredible, even prophetic, in his analysis of how the media would react in a given political situation. I started listening and found that Toobin was spot-on, indeed, compared to Rush, guys like Air America's Franken and even Fred Thompson, whom I somewhat liked, came across as very unprepared, and in Franken's case, catastrophically unfunny. Worse than Chevy Chase on his 29-day stint as a late-night talk show host in the early nineties.

Good to see that the usual JournoList agitprop from creeps like Ambinder and the Kleins, including the freak from Time Inc. who blames American stupidity for not accepting Obama's tax-and-spend socialism, are leavened with occasional outbursts of truth and honesty

BP Spill Huge Hype-Fest

The MSM hyped the tragic aspects of the BP oil leak as "the worst environmental disaster America has ever faced," [OOPS, that was the ZERO, AKA POTUS
#44]. Of course, no one really listens to Obama any more except Joy Behar and her intellectual equals [down there at the 80 IQ level].
The obnoxious anti-environmentalist Rush Limbaugh has been a rare voice arguing that the spill — he calls it "the leak" — is anything less than an ecological calamity, scoffing at the avalanche of end-is-nigh eco-hype.
Well, Limbaugh has a point. The Deepwater Horizon explosion was an awful tragedy for the 11 workers who died on the rig, and it's no leak; it's the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. It's also inflicting serious economic and psychological damage on coastal communities that depend on tourism, fishing and drilling. But so far — while it's important to acknowledge that the long-term potential danger is simply unknowable for an underwater event that took place just three months ago — it does not seem to be inflicting severe environmental damage. "The impacts have been much, much less than everyone feared," says geochemist Jacqueline Michel, a federal contractor who is coordinating shoreline assessments in Louisiana.


Time Mag's article linked above does more than ungraciously give Rush Limbaugh credit for being right when everyone else was howling at the moon, it basically pulls the rug out from under the pious frauds like Anderson Cooper and Brian Williams who've been whining adenoidally for months about an ecological Armageddon. Whereas honest scientists have a different perspective:
scientists have warned that the oil could accelerate the destruction of Louisiana's disintegrating coastal marshes — a real slow-motion ecological calamity — but so far, assessment teams have found only about 350 acres of oiled marshes, when Louisiana was already losing about 15,000 acres of wetlands every year. The disappearance of more than 2,000 sq. mi. of coastal Louisiana over the past century has been a true national tragedy, ravaging a unique wilderness, threatening the bayou way of life and leaving communities like New Orleans extremely vulnerable to hurricanes from the Gulf. And while much of the erosion has been caused by the re-engineering of the Mississippi River — which no longer deposits much sediment at the bottom of its Delta — quite a bit has been caused by the oil and gas industry, which gouged 8,000 miles of canals and pipelines through coastal wetlands. But the spill isn't making that problem much worse. Coastal scientist Paul Kemp, a former Louisiana State University professor who is now a National Audubon Society vice president, compares the impact of the spill on the vanishing marshes to "a sunburn on a cancer patient."

Back to Katrina, and the ultimate cause of the disaster that hit the Big Easy. Time Mag eventually discovered that after two years of investigative journalism [remember what that used to be?], FEMA was the fall guy and the real villain was the US Corps of Engineers. Of course, anyone familiar with New Orleans politics and the crooked Democratic crime wave {Cong. Jefferson's "cold cash," anyone?] that has been running the sub-sealevel disaster waiting to happen knows that the Corps was suborned by the crooked Dem pols, over decades of kickbacks and subletting projects to their cronies, that eventually made the city vulnerable.

It was the discredited MSM, the same that refused to investigate a completely inadequate Dem candidate in '08, which in '05 made the Bush Administration the Fall Guy, instead of the Democrat crooks and liars who ran the city for nearly a century.

FSB to become new KGB: Minority Report Put Into Action?

I have Deputized Tiger-Boy Putin as My Living Representative

Dmitri Medvedev has decided to INCREASE the powers of the Soviet-style secret police, the FSB, because of criticism of its anti-terrorism efforts!!! But no, not to increase the FSB's effectiveness against terrorists, but to quash and quell critics of its own incompetence!!! Back to Stalin, who may represent the true spirit of Russia after all. Except now, the FSB's chief target are the Communists, it would seem!
"Officers of law enforcement agencies have long talked about the necessity of switching from investigating crimes to their prevention," Mikhail Margelov, the Kremlin-connected head of the foreign affairs committee in the upper house of Russian parliament, said in a statement. "The amendments do not turn FSB into a new edition of once-almighty KGB but protect Russian citizens from outrages by men in uniform."
Some of the law's articles, including ones that toughen control over media for "extremist statements" and allow FSB to publish warnings in the press, were removed or toned down following severe criticism from opposition and even Kremlin loyalists.
However, a lawmaker with the Communist party that remains the largest opposition force in Russia's rubber-stamp parliament, said the amendments did not change the law's repressive character.
"Despite all the promises to correct the most odious articles, by the second reading nothing has been changed in the text," Viktor Ilykhin told The Associated Press.
A Kremlin loyalist from a nationalist party praised the law for its "preventative measures."
"This is not a repressive law," Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of the nationalist Liberal Democratic party, told Gazeta.ru online daily. "We're only talking about preventive measures."
Kremlin critics say, however, that the new measures could be used to violate the rights of opposition, and its obscure wording would leave the legislation open to interpretation.
"It's an ugly law with obscure formulas," independent political analyst Yulia Latynina told AP. "In case a drunken FSB officer is shooting at you, and there have been many such cases, you might end up getting jailed for 15 days for merely trying to escape."
The opposition has accused the Kremlin of turning Russia into a Soviet-style police state, and many Russians say they have experienced or fear abuse at the hands of FSB officers. Government critics say corruption among the FSB and other agencies stifles business activity and stunts the economy.
Some rights activists say the law simply legalizes practices FSB officers have been using for years.
"I don't think it adds anything to what FSB has been doing without any laws," former Soviet dissident and head of the Moscow Helsinki group Lyudmila Alexeyeva told AP. "But it's very sad when a law approves the outrage of such a dangerous service as FSB."
The legislation continues a trend under former President Vladimir Putin, blamed by the opposition and the West for rolling back Russia's democratic reforms of the 1990s. The former KGB officer and FSB head allowed the security services to regain power and influence at the expense of Russia's democratic institutions.

Like the film Minority Report, which describes a gnostic government's pre-emptive arrests for crimes not yet committed, it seems that in the new Russia, the law comes from God's lips to Putin's ear!

Krugman Lies on NYT Op-Ed Page [This Time on Climate-Warming Hoax Fraud

He used to be Rove, but now he's Rahm-bo!

James Taranto thrashes phony Nobel, ex-Enron Advisor Paul Krugboy, and from the redness of Pauly-boy's bottom, it appears that no more heat need be applied to this fake perfesser's feet.

Paul Krugman delivers the good news that 2010 is "the year in which all hope of action to limit climate change died." Needless to say, he thinks this is bad news, but that's not why we're highlighting his column in yesterday's New York Times. Instead, it is for this passage:
You've probably heard about the accusations leveled against climate researchers--allegations of fabricated data, the supposedly damning e-mail messages of "Climategate," and so on. What you may not have heard, because it has received much less publicity, is that every one of these supposed scandals was eventually unmasked as a fraud concocted by opponents of climate action, then bought into by many in the news media
.
Now, it would be one thing for Krugman to argue--wrongly, in our opinion--that the "supposedly damning e-mail messages of 'Climategate' " were not actually damning. But no one has denied that they are genuine. Krugman's description of them--and every other accusation "leveled against climate researchers"--as "a fraud concocted by opponents of climate action" is flatly false.


Read the rest of Taranto's emasculation of this pathetic thimblewit, and remember the good news that the NYT is hemorrhaging paid circulation by about 8-9% per year---pretty soon Krugboy and Chuckie Blow & other flatulent a$$holes on the Op-Ed page will have to look elsewhere to peddle their poisoned pablum---including the unctious ninny, David Brooks, a personification of how spectacularly silly this self-described "center-right" person can be when he allows us for one moment to see his inner confusion.

Barry Soetero Was No Law Prof, Nor Was He "Editor" of the Harvard Law Review


Doub Ross has the goods on the third-rate loser the US media/agitprop/academia/Hollyweirdo psycho left pushed successfully to be POTUS in 2008.

Baracko-Zero, AKA Stephen Q. Urkel, was rejected by the U. of Chicago Law Faculty for any position, but then the Board of Trustees --- here's Ross's version:
I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about "Barry." Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn't even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn't have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).


Ross notes that BHO "voluntarily surrendered" his law license in 2008, speculating that this might be to erase the "fibs" on his bar application.

Ditto for wife Michelle in 1993, and the records for why she "voluntarily surrendered" her license are, like Obama's state Senate race campaign fund records and his "senior thesis" at Columbia U., conveniently disappeared. Michelle had a job as "legal counsellor" at the U. of Chicago Hospital without her law license, another example of Illinois legal shenanigans' haywire BS. Ross and others speculate that Michelle must have been forced, like Bill Clinton for lying under oath, to give up her license before it was taken away from her.

Ross ends the long line of indictments with "this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court" in the SOTU address? An adjunct flunky who never published a single article on the law, yet claimed to be an EDITOR of the Harvard Law Review? A commenter points out that he was actually "President" of the Harvard Law Review, a job requiring no work, no writing, and essentially just a popularity contest.

As one commenter says: "The license stuff is interesting. Would have been nice to have the media actually, you know, look in to Obama's history with a tenth of the intensity with which they looked through Sarah Palin's garbage."

Douchebag Ed Schultz whines that Obama Gives Fox Interview instead of Himself

That pile on the top of my head is what I use for brains!

Schultz attended the whine-basting in Las Vegas when he disgraced himself thus:
Mr. Moulitsas was preceded by Ed Schultz, the liberal host who appears daily on MSNBC. He divided his speech between appeals to liberals to "stick it" to "ruthless, callous, rotten-to-the core Republicans" and raging about his disappointment with the Obama administration. "The White House has a war room. I think they have a sissy room too," he told attendees. At times he sounded like a spurned suitor. "I busted my ass for Obama," he said. "He don't come to Ed, he goes [and gives an interview] to Bret Baier on Fox News in my time slot."

Mr. Schultz charged that the Obama administration wasn't using progressive media effectively. "I thought our network did a hell of a job fighting for health care," he revealed, but mournfully admitted: "[The Obama White House] reacts to Fox, they don't go to us. . . . We're not winning right now, got to change some plays here."


Maybe Obama might have done a Schultz interview if this thuggish union hack had more than a couple dozen viewers!

Also, besides having about 100 times the viewership of the MSNBC hack, Baier is actually a good fair and balanced news journalist while Schultz is a blowhard liberal fascist with a brainectomy problem. Like the rest of MSNBC's third-rate, minor league ranters, the evening slots there are lucky if they get one-fifth the FOXNEWS viewers---except for Schultz, who would be one-fiftieth.

German Woodstock Turns into Mass Panic, at least 17 Die

Rock&Roll Tunnel of Love/Death

Berlin used to be the site of the Peace and Love festival for the latest reincarnation of hippie love-drug radicals until the city banned the event because of out-of-control hooliganism and other shenanigans.

So the music and dance festival shifted to Duisberg in the industrial Ruhr valley and the consequences on Saturday proved that the Berlin city fathers were wiser than the Duisberg douchebags who decided the event would be good for the city's economy. When 1.4 million Eurotards get together anywhere, panic & mayhem are bound to ensue among the drug-addled hordes seeking the latest opiate of the masses.

For those who think astrology may influence events, the havoc-causing Uranus entered the sign of Aries, ruling Germany, on Saturday, with an exact opposition to the malific Saturn in Libra with a full moon. Saturday's chart reads ominously [my emphasis]:
Applying Saturn Opposite Uranus
This transit emphasizes inequalities in society, the conflicts between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” This may also be a time of severe socio-economic stress and even financial recession. Changes of rule and authority in many fields leave people feeling unstable and insecure. It is a time of frustration, accidents, rigid resistance to change, and attacks on authorities.

Uranus void in Aries
Actions are unconventional, radical, or surprising. Not everyone agrees on how things should go, therefore there is discord within groups. Others, who have a specific agenda, persevere to make their point despite fierce opposition. Social conditions are volatile now. The bottom could fall out. It’s a time for experimentation and deviant behaviors. Sudden, unusual, and disruptive conditions occur now that reveal deep inequalities in society and culture.


The experimental techno music of the German love parade in the tunnel of death led to deviant behavior and an accident, one could surmise from the entire chart.

Rangel "You Don't Sound Like You're From NBC!"

Maybe I'll file for a Domincan passport when my time in the sun is over

Serial Criminal Rangel is beginning to crack in the media glare of unaccustomed hard questions from none other than Luke Russert, son of the late-and-sorely-missed Tim who kept Meet The Press from David Gregory not long enough.

As Rangel's Self-Created Reality-Based Community begins to collapse and he realizes that Nancy Botox has thrown him under the bus, expect more expressions of disbelief that an entitled affirmative-action paragon of tax-dodging patronage politics might come face-to-face with the law.

I cannot wait for Charlie and Blago to be raking sandtraps in some Fed Hilton white collar health farm in the near future.

Self-Invented Reality Community Returns to Cone of Silence

Just One Minute has one of Tom Malone's better outpourings on the ridiculous unending hypocrisy of "The Paper of Broken Record." Malone is hilarious:
The Times expressing agreement with Beck, Limbaugh and Palin will be like saying "Beetlejuice" three times. No one can predict the consequences. BUT SERIOUSLY: The key takeaway from the Sherrod story will be that the Times will be even more resolute in ignoring stories emerging from the right, such as the Acorn saga, the New Black Panther dismissal, and so on.

And JOM goes on to demonstrate how the NYT deliberately lies about Fox News, as does a spurious-Nobel named Krugboy, in pushing its race angle even farther into the black hole of political self-destruction. Aside from dedicated Upper West Siders and their satellite communities in Hollyweird and campuses across the land, no sane American believes that the Tea Party is comprised of racists and the NAACP of do-gooders.

Sen. James Webb of Virginia makes this point at length in the Wall Street Journal, whose paid circulation is increasing while the NYT's is shrinking by about 10% per annum. Webb makes an interesting point that the NYT could not print with Commissar Jill Abramson and Hauptmann Keller in charge of editing duties:
In an odd historical twist that all Americans see but few can understand, many programs allow recently arrived immigrants to move ahead of similarly situated whites whose families have been in the country for generations. These programs have damaged racial harmony. And the more they have grown, the less they have actually helped African-Americans, the intended beneficiaries of affirmative action as it was originally conceived.

Indeed, the ignorant black Democratic leadership thrashing about in the throes of being once again betrayed by their white colleagues, are seeing Hispanics and other foreign-born immigrants granted special privileges employing legislation once designed to put their own interests on "a level playing field" with the ordinary American white majority. And Obama, who was to give them the first-among-equal status that blacks have enjoyed in the Democratic Party, has now been revealed to be pushing Hispanic rather than black interests in the mistaken idea that amnesty will make grateful Democrats out of illegal aliens.
But as Tom Malone points out, the Self-Invented Reality Community keeps pushing agitprop lies forward to distract the blacks and keep the subject on race---hoping to avoid the catastrophe that the majority of Americans will wake up and assert their right to vote for a non-race-based agenda in the government.

The first order of business for that to happen would be to fire the racist Attorney General Eric Holder and his cabal of race-baiting DOJ prosecutors.

Why Unemployment Will Continue to Rise

The New York Times inadvertently gives a back-channel opportunity for conservatives to communicate via comment-sites in its "caucus" chat-room format, loosely defined as a zone where free exchange of ideas can occur. Among the many apologists for Obama trying to answer the question of the site, "Where did all the jobs go," occasional lucid rays of enlightenment brightened the surrounding Bush-bashing, job-flight whining and other conventional liberal tropes.

Here is a good explanation by Milton Recht of Mount Kisco, NY, near a Friendly's where we often sipped & gnoshed while rushing to get on the Taconic Parkway on our way northward to MA & Cape Cod.

The rise in unemployment is a mystery unless one is willing to include the political agenda of the current administration as a possible cause. The excessive unemployment for this economic downturn and the lack of job creation as the economy rebounds shows that employers are shifting away from labor/worker and into capital/machinery and process improvements.

Contrary to the current administration's causality of blaming the past, employers base their hiring decisions on expectations about the future. The likely future cost increases for employees increases an employer's willingness to utilize more machinery and capital in production of goods and services, while reducing the number of employees.

Employers are acting rationally to an expected increase in the cost of labor. The new healthcare law significantly increases the cost of employing labor versus capital. Many other proposals from the Obama administration, such as card check, increase the cost of labor to companies. Obama's anti-business, pro-union policies give employers the impression that more costs are likely in the future.

Employers have responded as anyone does to increase costs. They have chosen cheaper equivalent alternatives. Employers are shifting away from workers to machinery in response to the administration's policies of increasing the costs of hiring workers.

The Democrats and the President see businesses as bottomless pits of cash and profits. Employers have logically reacted to the administration's business philosophy and are attempting to reduce their future costs by employing fewer workers and using more capital as the economy grows. Unfortunately, it takes time to switch to more capital and machinery, which adds to the slowness of the economic recovery.

It is unlikely that the current administration will change its view of business, which means that the economy is unlikely to improve until those in office see business and capitalism as their friend and not as their enemy.


The zero-sum game mentality fostered by the socialist Obamanables in their crenellated ivory tower economic redoubts has had the very predictable effect of causing producers to automate and mechanize means of production, so the capture strategy by big unions can be offset by a diminished need for employees. As Milton notes, the raid & plunder mentality of the economists & their union myrmidons can be avoided [somewhat] in situ by counter-strategies of eliminating opportunities for featherbedding, etc., and other time-honored class-warfare tactics which lead to the predictable beggaring of the US economy. Raising taxes will further hamper a return to full employment, and the socialist Obamanables take away with their government hand one of the few investment tools, capital, that might return the economy to a robust 5% employment level.

When the Bush tax-reductions are repealed, predictably the other shoe in the downturn will drop and we will see unemployment vault above the 10% level. All so very predictable.

Thank you, Milton Recht, for exposing the economic Luddites surrounding Obama and their plan to employ unions to return to full employment after the 2010 elections.....!

Parasite Elites in DC Batten on New Legislation While Rest of USA Economy Withers

Elites to Masses: What Blagjedovich said in Illinois Goes Double Here in DC---Go Eff Yourselves! We Got Our Cushy Jobs and You Can Go Fish!

A Virtual Crime Wave enacted by the criminally insane remote elites in DC has put Washington's economy into hyperdrive while nowhere else in the USA except government-proof Texas is able to keep economic nose above the waterline.

Brain-dead Yahoo pulled its teaser story on booming DC job markets next to its e-mail portal, which like all things ATT & Yahoo, sucks with a capital "S."

The new criminal class, it is no secret, is composed of the 435 Members of Congress and 100 Senators who have gerrymandered themselves in most states and seats into hard-to-evict elected positions which render them unaccountable to usual voting patterns. So even if the GOP were to gain, say 100 seats this Fall, the chief Big Government crime junta cacique mafiosi like "Rhino-Nose" Waxman and "Cornhole-Me" Barney Frank and Botox-Oozes-Out-of-my-Eyebrows Pelosi would all be returned to Congress, along with Maxine "Crack Mama" Waters and Bobo Boxer, the dumbest soft-porn writer in the history of the US Senate, all these pervs, perps, and nepotistic ninnies would be re-elected from impregnable fortresses of union and illegal alien corrupt seats, what in England used to be called "Rotten Boroughs."

And so Big Government battens on bigger taxes and a burgeoning IRS and CPA industry to handle the new paperwork burdens put upon the small businessmen and large corporations by abominations of quango oversight like ObamaCare and the new Fiscal Oversight Bill, ten times stupider than Sarbanes-Oxley. Thanks, Scott Brown, for voting for more Big Government after the Bloated Sow-Bitch of the Senate you replaced went to meet Mary Jo Kopechne. Maybe your daughters are prostitutes, if Barney Frank insists they're not!

Obama Uses IRS to Crush Private Economy and Small Business on His Way to Installing an All-Powerful Corporatist State

If You Oppose My Grab for Absolute Power, I will Call You a Teabagger or a Racist, or BOTH

Expansion of Government Agencies is only one of the several tools Obama is employing to change the constitutional basis of American freedoms through the application of administrative laws set up without the supervision of Congress or the oversight of the SCOTUS.
Republicans argued during the health debate that the IRS would have to hire hundreds of new agents and staff to enforce ObamaCare. They were brushed off by Democrats and the press corps as if they believed the President was born on the moon. The IRS says it hasn't figured out how much extra money and manpower it will need but admits that both numbers are greater than zero.

The chaotic anarchy unleashed by the careless slipshod legislative sloppiness of "We won't know what's in the law until after we pass it" Speaker of the House Pelosi is slowly becoming apparent as the implications of the draconian tax provisions that Obamacare has put into place are revealed.
....the tracking costs for small businesses will be "disproportionate as compared with any resulting improvement in tax compliance." Job creation, here we come . . . at least for the accountants who will attempt to comply with a vast new 1099 reporting burden. Meanwhile, the IRS will be inundated with useless information, because without a huge upgrade its information systems won't be able to manage and track the nanodetails. In a Monday letter, even Democratic Senators Mark Begich (Alaska), Ben Nelson (Nebraska), Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire) and Evan Bayh (Indiana) denounce this new "burden" on small businesses and insist that the IRS use its discretion to find "better ways to structure this reporting requirement." In other words, they want regulators to fix one problem among many that all four Senators created by voting for ObamaCare.

Even tax-happy Democrats now comprehend the colossal burden of bookkeeping the new tax-reporting requirements mandated by Obamacare requires, which one called "ten times greater than the Sarbanes-Oxley monstrosity's reporting requirements," which only large businesses heretofore have been required to fulfill. It is becoming apparent that the lack of managerial and executive experience that this tyro CEO of a POTUS has in his resume is going to be more destructive than the silly Carteresque miscues like the 55-MPH speed limit and leaning buses, etc., etc.....

But the larger outlines of the disaster that the Obama Presidency is slowly revealing itself to becoming are now slowly revealing themselves, much like a heedless Titanic [economy] going at full speed ahead through a iceberg-studded patch of North Atlantic. The ObamaCare avalanche of paperwork and the new Fiscal Requirements Wall Street firms will have to show the brain-fog ridden SEC are only two examples of administrative law rendering capitalism and good business practices overburdened with bureaucratic requirements. As the municipal monstrosity of the city of Cleveland, with an economy wrecked by a socialist numbnut mayor named Kucinich, who now continues his antics in Congress, demonstrates, the average time for a new business venture to fill the administrative requirements simply to begin its business operations is "19 months, we'll have you up and running....!"

Just stretch such administrative rule by quangos across the entire USA and soon our economy will be buried in paperwork, for tax and mandated transparency requirements. And another part of the picture, like one of the old Polaroid pictures beginning to clarify before the eyes of the American voter, is now becoming more and more clarifyingly obvious:

To wit: Obama is proving himself to be a nasty sophomoric thin-skinned second-rater who has pushed and managed in some cases to pass monster legislative miscues which will quickly turn the USA into some sort of first-world Zimbabwe.

Obama is a Corporatist Socialist along the lines of Mussolini and Hitler, or what Stalin would call a "fascist," binding government-controlled corporations, unions, educational and volunteer organizations into a tight band of top-down controlled statist mechanisms.

I'm sure this third-rate Jimmy Carter doesn't think of himself as another Mugabe, but his marshaling so-called classes of racial, social, gender, and ethnic "victims" to combine together to overthrow and dispossess the existing class of property-owners with taxes and other government fiscal demands makes the resemblance of Obama's future USA with Robert Mugabe's tottering bankrupt corrupt extractive autocracy eerily similar.

And on Nelson Mandela's 92nd birthday today, it is dead certain that Obama is NOT a Nelson Mandela.

You Scratch My Back....Climate Frauds Exonerate Climate Frauds


Academic Whores abound in the world of "climate science," where millions of government subsidies and donations to moral and mental cripples have produced an entire industry of snake-oil salesmen who propound dangerous BS concerning global warming. They feed right into the guilt-trip moral weakness of godless libtards.
Last November there was a world-wide outcry when a trove of emails were released suggesting some of the world's leading climate scientists engaged in professional misconduct, data manipulation and jiggering of both the scientific literature and climatic data to paint what scientist Keith Briffa called "a nice, tidy story" of climate history. The scandal became known as Climategate.

Now a supposedly independent review of the evidence says, in effect, "nothing to see here." Last week "The Independent Climate Change E-mails Review," commissioned and paid for by the University of East Anglia, exonerated the University of East Anglia. The review committee was chaired by Sir Muir Russell, former vice chancellor at the University of Glasgow.

Mr. Russell took pains to present his committee, which consisted of four other academics, as independent. He told the Times of London that "Given the nature of the allegations it is right that someone who has no links to either the university or the climate science community looks at the evidence and makes recommendations based on what they find."

No links? One of the panel's four members, Prof. Geoffrey Boulton, was on the faculty of East Anglia's School of Environmental Sciences for 18 years. At the beginning of his tenure, the Climatic Research Unit (CRU)—the source of the Climategate emails—was established in Mr. Boulton's school at East Anglia. Last December, Mr. Boulton signed a petition declaring that the scientists who established the global climate records at East Anglia "adhere to the highest levels of professional integrity."

This purportedly independent review comes on the heels of two others—one by the University of East Anglia itself and the other by Penn State University, both completed in the spring, concerning its own employee, Prof. Michael Mann. Mr. Mann was one of the Climategate principals who proposed a plan, which was clearly laid out in emails whose veracity Mr. Mann has not challenged, to destroy a scientific journal that dared to publish three papers with which he and his East Anglia friends disagreed. These two reviews also saw no evil. For example, Penn State "determined that Dr. Michael E. Mann did not engage in, nor did he participate in, directly or indirectly, any actions that seriously deviated from accepted practices within the academic community."

Readers of both earlier reports need to know that both institutions receive tens of millions in federal global warming research funding (which can be confirmed by perusing the grant histories of Messrs. Jones or Mann, compiled from public sources, that are available online at freerepublic.com). Any admission of substantial scientific misbehavior would likely result in a significant loss of funding.

The Wall Street Journal article goes on to elaborate on the ongoing scandals of "peer review" of scientific literature being confined to review by one's co-cohspirators in this "scientific" Ponzi scheme and the stupid cover-ups by absent-minded professors too stupid to know that FOIA requests are not the only way to get at criminal behavior by academics....

The stupidest US senator of the 100 idiots in that institution, a certain slut named Boxer, called for the indictment of the anonymous whistleblower who revealed Phil Jones' criminal cover-up last year on the grounds that --- actually pig-brain Baba Boxer had no idea on what grounds, she just shot off her empty mouth from the recesses of her empty head....... But wait, there's more:
Then there's the problem of interference with peer review in the scientific literature. Here too Mr. Russell could find no wrong: "On the allegations that there was subversion of the peer review or editorial process, we find no evidence to substantiate this."

Really? Mr. Mann claims that temperatures roughly 800 years ago, in what has been referred to as the Medieval Warm Period, were not as warm as those measured recently. This is important because if modern temperatures are not unusual, it casts doubt on the fear that global warming is a serious threat. In 2003, Willie Soon of the Smithsonian Institution and Sallie Baliunas of Harvard published a paper in the journal Climate Research that took exception to Mr. Mann's work, work which also was at variance with a large number of independent studies of paleoclimate. So it would seem the Soon-Baliunas paper was just part of the normal to-and-fro of science.

But Mr. Jones wrote Mr. Mann on March 11, 2003, that "I'll be emailing the journal to tell them I'm having nothing more to do with it until they rid themselves of this troublesome editor," Chris de Freitas of the University of Auckland. Mr. Mann responded to Mr. Jones on the same day: "I think we should stop considering 'Climate Research' as a legitimate peer-reviewed journal. Perhaps we should encourage our colleagues . . . to no longer submit to, or cite papers in, this journal. We would also need to consider what we tell or request our more reasonable colleagues who currently sit on the editorial board."

Mr. Mann ultimately wrote to Mr. Jones on July 11, 2003, that "I think the community should . . . terminate its involvement with this journal at all levels . . . and leave it to wither away into oblivion and disrepute."

Climate Research and several other journals have stopped accepting anything that substantially challenges the received wisdom on global warming perpetuated by the CRU. I have had four perfectly good manuscripts rejected out of hand since the CRU shenanigans, and I'm hardly the only one. Roy Spencer of the University of Alabama, Huntsville, has noted that it's becoming nearly impossible to publish anything on global warming that's nonalarmist in peer-reviewed journals.

Of course, Mr. Russell didn't look to see if the ugly pressure tactics discussed in the Climategate emails had any consequences. That's because they only interviewed CRU people, not the people whom they had trashed.

Of course, the totally dishonest NYT had a front-page article on this "investigation" last week, so the empty-headed fruitcake mafia that reads that fishwrap collection of politically correct alarmist BS on the climate fraud will continue its corrupt attempt to put cap and trade, already DOA in DC, into the nation's descent into statist mediocrity.

Thank God for Prof. Michaels, the author of this WSJ piece on the "whitewash" of Climategate, as the criminals try to retake the commanding heights through the corruption and complicity of the NYT and an unindicted co-conspirator named Muir Russell.

World Cup Final Sux!

Ruud Gullit is expressing his disappointment on ABC. A “terrible game” he calls it, “boring,” and “not an advert for football today.” Truer words were never spoken. Too bad Mueller was disqualified by a phony yellow card and couldn't play in the semi-final with Spain---soccer still has too many holes just like baseball that don't permit instant replay or even delayed replays. The Dutch play dirty, whereas the Germany/Spain match truly was a "beautiful game." Even against Uruguay, the third-place game was very clean, compared with the smudged-up shoddy final with more dives than a triple half-gainer per minute by the Dutch. The Spanish did the same just to keep the game on a level [!] playing field!!! Gresham's Law of Soccer: Bad Acting Drives Out Good Futbol!

Gaffe-Prone Biden Blames Bush for Iraq Victory---Oops!

I'm an A**hole, and you can bet I'll stay an A**hole!

Sorry, the silliest VP since Dan Quayle actually congratulated Obama for winning the war in Iraq, or some such humbuggery. Stupid is as stupid does, and Biden simply opens his mouth to accomplish his goal of looking like a fool. People with memories that go back to 2007 remember traitorous words from Dingy Harry and a long shot fucktard named Obama saying he was proud of having been against the Iraq Cobra II operation.
Of course this skinny little mutt had not yet been elected to an office, merely elevated by Illinois Chicago-style graft and corruption to a State Senate seat whose campaign funding records for TWO, [2], campaigns still remain "lost." Just like Daley's mind.

Joe supported the war before he was against it before he was for it again, following his guru John Kerry, a Viennese Jew-boy who betrayed his fellow soldiers by calling them rapists and other treasonous calumnies. At least Obama only switched once, but Biden, like a perfect lying fool, reminds us of Napoleon's dictum that "The Italians never finish a war on the same side that they started it on, except on the rare occasions that they switch sides twice."

Perfect fool Biden has switched sides twice, making him the perfect guinea fool that his parents would be ashamed of.

Another Nobel for Obambi, this time for Economics?

Steven Q. Urkel AKA Barry Soetero is a HEDGEHOG & a FOX!

Fishwrap and Birdcage-Useful NY Daily News spotlights a bogus poll from Siena College, which plays Syracuse b-ball teams to overtime, that puts FDR numero uno and Teddy Rooseveldt numbero dos on the list of US presidents---both upstate New Yorkers [actually TR a Long Islander] who outpaced Lincoln and George Washington in POTUS preeminence. Was Martin Van Buren of Old Kinderhook [OK!] and organizational founder of the modern Democrat Party number three?

You just have to chuckle at the silly attempts of the victims of academicide and their media lackeys to diminish Reagan's incredible achievement of both restoring economic confidence after Carter's disastrous economic micro-managing [seven (7!) Treasury Sec's in 4 years plus double-digit inflation, interest rates and unemployment---a record even Obambi will struggle to equal] and at the same time gain Gorbachev's confidence while covertly assisting mujahideen in Afghanistan in Charlie Wilson's War [in which I myself had a bit part in the original '85-87 phase working for Denis Neill, one of Charlie's lobbyist henchmen who helped CW get crooks like John Kerry and Chris Dodd to vote for Pakistani arms to counter the Soviet subversion.

In addition, Ronald Reagan refused to take the "Star Wars" program off the agenda, leaving the Soviet military no recourse but to attempt to counter this new piece of the chessboard of int'l military Cold War balances. The Soviet economy was already reeling, and despite the clamor raised by Soviet allies in the USA like the NYT, WaPo, and Democratic Party, Reagan finally put the USSR's gyroscope into a fatal spiral of bankruptcy and it fell almost of its own hollow empty self, with a mere push or tug occasionally by Reagan, Thatcher, and of course, the Pope.

This so-called "poll" by upstate-NY Siena has FDR #1 and Teddy R. #2 which is the camel that libtards swallow without noting any home-team bias. If the academics can put a fraud like FDR, who managed to take the Great Depression and turn it into a Double Dip recession/depression by among other fiascos LOWERING housing starts from 1933 to 1938, as a working-class hero, then they have a good shot at making a faineant pretentious ball boy like Obama into a Babe Ruth/Hank Aaron slugger!

Like Obambi's phony Nobel, his "greatness" is another rabbit-out-of-the-hat libtard media schtick that only the Peacock Network's Bri-boy Williams and MSNBC will broadcast with a straight face. Nowadays, even CNN has enough integrity to put a little perspective into such phony "polls."

The Daily News Poll attached to the joke-article has as the greatest POTUS in our lifetime, none other than Obambi! No wonder those Russian spies clustered around New York City, which as Moscow on the Hudson has fewer Americans per capita in the patriotic sense than anywhere outside Nancy Pelosi's S.F. district in the "Tenderloin."

Steele Not Raising Big Bucks for Repub Candidates

It is becoming more and more apparent that Michael Steele has never understood the nature of the RNC job. He is obviously trying [and failing spectacularly] to use the position of RNC Chair to boost his own political cred. He is supposed to ben a faceless behind-the-scenes expeditor of getting Republican candidates elected, not some sort of policy guru. Leave that to the elected politicians, electedn by the PEOPLE, not by other pols.

Steele just keeps trying to outgaffe Biden and when he implies that Obama initiated Afghanistan, Steele sounds like a numbnut dodo.
