So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

New Year resolution for 2015.

I think I'll try one long run on post, in the 'This Just In' style I prototyped from 8/18/2013 to 6/9/14, for the entire year, or until I become bored, whichever first occurs. We already pretty much know the script anyway.

The Saul Alinksy Radical Occupying the Oval Office will push the constitutional limits of the Imperial Presidency to its breaking point. Congress, now under new management with the Other Party of Government in control, will spend the year attempting to repair the public image of the party and the institution. GLWT. The corrupt and biased lamestream media still wields considerable influence with the low information voter. The recently elected minority within the congressional majority - let's call these movement conservatives the "Conservative Ascendancy" - will provide the energy and ideological / intellectual vigor checking the abuses that will be perpetrated by the Leftist tyrant in the White House, to the extent possible. Democrats on Capitol Hill can choose between joining the caterwauling we will hear from radical Leftist mobs assembling on the streets, or joining Establishment GOP leadership engineered legislation.

Lies big and small will come out of the capital daily. Democrat lies will be either ignored or elevated to propaganda by the lamestream media (depending on the instructions they receive from the DNC), called out by alternative media, and generally come to nothing. Republican lies will be called out by lamestream media, called out by alternative media, and generally result in the ending of Republican careers. As a result of this media environment, there will naturally be many more Democrat lies. On with the show.



Congress fraudulently gifts itself health insurance discounts. People in DC need to got to jail for this. Literally. Lots of them. Maybe the lying hacks pulled this stunt because they saw *this* coming - since they wrote the automatic health care tax increases into the law nobody read before passing it.


Donald Trump is the crony in crony capitalism. That makes him part of the problem. The only reason he sits where he does in the 2016 race is the Establishment GOP has wasted years (at least 6 depending on how you count) ignoring and alienating the patriotic, hard working, blue collar people whose righteous anger the Donald is now tapping into. Let's hope he turns out to be nothing but the set up man (gratuitous baseball analogy) for a reformist closer not named Bush. Cruz, Walker, and Fiorina have earned places on my short list. Paul, too, on the strength of his direct attack on Trump in the first debate.


The tweeter known as @hale_razor nails it to perfection.
When anyone posing as a judge is empowered to tell us that plainly written simple phrases mean something other than what they obviously say, the rule of law ends and the tyranny of men begins.


So, why is anyone surprised SCOTUS finds the plain meaning of the text is to be held meaningless, when in 2012 the mandate was simply re-labeled a tax by the same gang of intellectually bankrupt hacks? My reaction to to the 2015 ObamaKare ruling is the same as my reaction to its equally pathetic 2012 cousin - "DC has become a dangerously ridiculous parody of governance." Don't forget this clown car train wreck of a law started out with our so-called "leaders" telling us we'll have to pass the bill to find out what's in it. Then came the mandate is really a tax mental abortion. Then the absurdly incompetent roll out. And then of course health care becoming cheaper and simpler to access for everyone. (Take a wild guess which part isn't true.) The only bright side here is the spineless hacks of the Establishment GOP weren't handed the gift of political cover they hoped for from the nine clowns disguised as judges down the street. I don't want to hear any more mealy-mouthing about veto-proof bills. Let the demagogue in the White House veto whatever he wants. Force the g*ddamned issue, g*ddamnit!


I don't know about you ... but passing yourself off as a completely different race, very publicly and for many years, seems like a lot of work to me. Kinking the hair to a meticulously maintained false consistency day over day? That's gotta be several hours in the bathroom per day right there. And keeping an artificially darkened skin tone consistently within acceptable limits of variation? No tanning bed program can explain this feat. Just ask John Boehner - who routinely shape shifts from pasty white to pumpkin orange and back again. The real question that needs to be asked today is: does Rachel Dolezal even ever sleep? Is she in fact human at all? Or could she actually be from an alien race that evolved to survive on 30 seconds of sleep per day? And, if so, what is her true mission here on Earth?


From the Drudge Report feed on the blog roll. It would appear Team Leftie political narratives aimed at demonizing cops and excusing criminal behavior has had the predictable results in Baltimore. Cops get cautious, law abiding poor people get screwed.. Mostly black ones, btw


Seems my 2/12/15 entry was prophetic, and my awesome powers of social media still insufficient to convince al-Dookie the Islamic Terrorist to sit down and shut up. What is it with these barbarians, anyway?


TEA Party rallies bring chaos, looting, and mayhem to Baltimore. Wait, not exactly that. Tag with expiration date here. The republic awaits leadership from the so-called Post-Racial President.


Story of the week. Fascist Left raises ugly head thanks to Internet. Fascist Left receives immediate beat down thanks to Internet. Internet proven good for the overall health of the republic.


De Facto Leader of the Free World wins Israeli elections handily. Pouter-In-Chief doesn't like that very much.


Riffing off the 2/19 entry ...

Why did the illegal immigrant cross the street Rio Grande? Why, to get a job, of course. Maybe yours, if you are a blue collar citizen.

Why did Obama cross the street? To register the illegal immigrant as a Democrat. Twice.

Why did the outside agitator go to Ferguson, Missouri. Because Obama, Holder, Sharpton and the rest of the professional race hustlers told him to.

Why does anyone named Clinton ever cross the street. To avoid the subpoena.


De Facto Leader of the Free World Bibi Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, is on his way to address the US Congress on why no deal is better than a bad deal with the Leading State Sponsor of Terror, Iran. Somebody has to do it.


Why did the ISIS terrorist cross the street? Correct Answer: To kill an infidel. This genius' answer: To get a job? How ridiculous. First of all the ISIS terrorist already has a job. His pseudo-religious ideology already told him killing infidels is his job. #jobsforisis


Read the comments to the article. If complicity from the corporatist wing of the Establishment GOP gives the The Saul Alinsky Radical Occupying the Oval Office an illegal and unconstitutional immigration amnesty victory, there will hell to pay. With this issue we are nearing a tipping point where directly confronting the constitutional abuses coming out of the White House - with measures like de-funding, shutdown, and impeachment - is more in the interest of civil order than hiding under your desks, GOP hacks.


Something tells me there may be an Islamist somewhere that may be offended by this.. Get over it, join modern society, and try not blow any sh*t up this time, al Dookie.


Staying with the so-called "Black Lives Matter" thread ... Darren Wilson has been cleared by the Justice Department. Eric Holder's Justice Department. Barack Hussein Obama's Justice Department. The republic has endured a lot of ancillary death, destruction, and mayhem directly connected to these very same contemptible hacks fanning the flames of race warfare politics - before bothering to complete the official investigation. In a rational constitutional world, such egregiously terrible leadership would result in impeachment hearings. Yet, I note the congress hasn't even gotten around to sending a Keystone XL bill to the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. What's taking so long? If he signs, he p*sses off his Team Leftie base. If he vetoes he p*sses off 70% of the voting public. It's the right think to do for the economy. It's a slam dunk. Is this congress so kowtowed it cannot even accomplish this?


Social media and local news outlets exercise their right to exercise the power of mockery to push back on silly little Leftist "protesters" here and here. Who knows, the national media might even prove educable one day.


Add Egyptian President Sisi to the list of Muslims the world needs more of.
“Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants — that is seven billion — so that they themselves may live? Impossible!” Sisi said in front of the TV cameras and religious leaders at Al Azhar.

Good thing the most recent turn in the recent history that started with the so-called 'Arab Spring' of 2011 was the secular Egyptian military booting the Muslim Brotherhood out of office. In other words, as I hoped in this space while writing this February 2011 post, good thing Attaturk's ideological descendants resisted 2011's bum rush from al-Banna's. Of course, still not so good the so-called leader of the Free World seems more aligned with the latter than the former.


The world needs more Muslims like this. The kind that have left the 7th century behind, and embrace the values of modern civilization. The kind that are willing to tell the radicals in their midst to pound sand. There's been a lot of talk today about the American President skipping the Paris "unity march." President Can't Be Bothered would do well to consider awarding a Presidential Medal of Freedom to Mayor Aboutaleb of Rotterdam.


Finally, something worth reading published by the Washington Post. ‘Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression’. Jeff Bezos' mama didn't raise no dummy. He done good when he gave pajama boy Ezra Klein's blog space to Eugene Volokh.

Wrapping up, I have one question and one recommendation for any of the DC ruling elite used to getting all their news and opinion propaganda from the Post. Question: How did you end up here reading this? Recommendation: Well, since you're here, read this, too. What Islam brings to the world today Who knows, you might learn something.


As easily predicted, the Establishment's man retained the House Speaker's gavel yesterday. And as sadly expected, the Establishment's sore winner will exact his petty revenges on the dissenters. Sigh. History demands a defender of the constitution, and we get the Committee Nazi instead. (That's a reference to Seinfeld's Soup Nazi, btw. 'No committee assignment for you!')


Breaking today is yet another murderous attack by radical Islam on western civilization, this time in Paris. Yet another group of card carrying members from Mohammed's Murder Monkey Cult From Hell have taken sufficient insult from a cartoon to vent their frustrations with a murder spree dispensing allah's special brand of justice unto the infidels who dare to draw his visage. This is exactly why the constitution and sharia law are utterly incompatible. The Constitutionalist reasons "I disagree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it to the death." The Islamist reasons "I disagree with what you say, so ... "I KEEL YOU!" (Jeff Dunham / Achmed the Dead Terrorist). When western civilization's ruling elites deny this obvious distinction, as they have so many times previously, it only makes the problem worse and the world more dangerous.


Boehner & Co. is facing a very vocal insurrection among movement conservatives. The Establishment GOP - aka The Other Party of Government - will prove tomorrow they remain strong enough to protect their man's coveted hold on the Speaker's gavel. The better to dispense favors to cronies such as the Chamber of Commerce amnesty lobby in return for campaign contribution riches. But the trend is good for liberty nevertheless. That ticking sound, Establishment GOPers, is the clock running down on your control of the (R) label. That's the clock that started running down with the first TEA Party rallies, and won't stop its inexorable drive until we have a GOP leadership team willing to shrink the size and scope of the federal gub'ment; for realsies, not just rhetorically while running for re-election.


Important detail I left (get it?) out of yesterday's post. David Horowitz has done us the favor of dedicating himself to naming names at A most valuable resource in the battle for the republic's heart and soul.

Now, on to something really important - my NFL playoff picks for the weekend, with appropriately barely informed and specious reasoning provided.

Carolina over Arizona because Carolina is hot right now, and Arizona ain't.

Pittsburgh over Baltimore solely based on nothing but home field because you never know what can happen in these intra-divisional rivalries, which we will definitely see; and on a sloppy field, which we may very well see.

Indianapolis over Cincinnati because Andrew Luck is more consistent than Andy Dalton.

Dallas over Detroit in the battle between matching uniforms, because Matthew Stafford is oh-fer on the road against winning teams. This was a tough call, though, since its being played in Dallas. The Cowboys are 4-4 at home vs. 8-0 on the road this year, and that's worth 5 points to the Lions right there. I assume Jerry Jones worked the phones last week in a desperate but failed effort to change the venue.


The Left's latest protest fetish analyzed to perfection. The 60's era "New Left" has been serially hijacking random events and occurrences to organize their socialist revolution, since the Jefferson Airplane was a thing. From Vietnam war protests, to global cooling in the 70's based on no actual data whatsoever, to global warming when somebody developed flawed models on incomplete data, to "climate change" when they figured just tell people all weather is a sign of the end of times; they are relentlessly on the prowl for an organizing principle to create the proletariat mob of their Marxist fantasies. The pace naturally picked up, and the street level actions became more naked, when their man Barack Hussein Obama assumed command of the republic's Executive branch. Occupy Wall Street was built by old "New Left" hippies, and the the acolytes they spent a quarter century indoctrinating, around class warfare and envy of the rich, using the 2008-2009 housing bubble as the excuse. The same usual suspects are engineering today's unhinged national anti-cop rant-o-rama that is so much in the news lately. They state the obvious with signs saying "Black Lives Matter" (uh, duh, all lives matter*) while leaving out more insightful thoughts such as "sh*t happens when you choose to break the law." But, logic and reason is not their purpose. They seek to use the news cycle as a convenient excuse to incite the so-called black "community" to riot, and then sow the chaos for political gain. (*Cue ironic observation regarding late term abortion. Especially in the so-called black "community.")


The daily diet of Bread and Circuses on the final day of 2014 concerns a certain GOP Representative named Steve Scalise, from Lousiana. You see, Rep. Scalise may have had some sort of contact with some unsavory characters a long time ago. (This, btw, is exactly why I will never run from public office. But I digress.) The players are so far performing perfectly to script. Establishment GOP is circling the wagons around their man. The 24x7 spin machine owned and operated by the Democrats is running in overdrive to assassinate Scalise's character. Sir Charles Krauthammer, Pundit Laureate, is correct that there is a double standard at play. The conservative right is trying to shift the focus over to Speaker Boehner's continuing support for Scalise, and use it as leverage in an ultimately quixotic (though useful) campaign to replace him as Speaker. My sense is it will all blow over, based mostly on timing. It's New Year's Eve, the new Congress will soon be seated, and the American people told us last fall there are bigger fish to fry. Memo to GOP Leadership - just make sure President Pen has something on his desk that is popular with the public but reviled by the Left, to veto or sign, post haste. Keystone Pipeline is a gimme.


I'm pretty sure the Speaker can be anybody, constitutionally.

Run , Newt, Run!

Blast From the Past

Re-posting my original post from September 11, 2012. I couldn't help but notice it could just as easily be released as an original today. Perhaps, in light of tonight's speech from the apparent war monger formerly known as the Appeaser-In-Chief, the points concerning American leadership would have to reshaped to point out speechification without sustained and consistent action afterward isn't leadership.

Nine Thoughts on the Eleventh Anniversary of 9/11

(1) The so-called "War on Terror" is a conflict between incompatible civilizations. On one side is the target - western civilization, sprouting from the principles of free will introduced to mankind by the Age of Enlightenment. On the other side is the aggressor - Radical Islamism - a religiously political ideology stuck in a backward 7th Century model of tyrannical dictation to its followers.

(2) The US Constitution and sharia law are completely and utterly incompatible.

(3) They don't hate us for anything we've done. They hate us because their ideology instructs them to hate infidels.

(4) We have been relatively safe over the past eleven years due to thousands upon thousands of unheralded heroes quietly doing the work they were born and/or trained to do in the context of America's exceptional opportunity society. These heroes labor in the FBI, CIA, and various other agencies including the uniformed armed services. These heroes write computer programs, utilize "gamer" skills flying unmanned drones, analyze telephone wire recordings, drive humvees through god-forsaken landscapes, and perform a thousand other functions I could not possibly fully catalog.

(5) These unheralded heroes continue to keep us safe despite the failed leadership of the current administration.

(6) The geopolitical situation in the Middle East grows more dangerous by the day, and Radical Islam grows stronger there, because of the failed leadership of the current administration.

(7) Ultimately, western civilization surviving this conflict depends on American global leadership, which is not being provided by the current administration.

(8) If Tehran acquires the ability to deliver nuclear warheads into the population centers of western civilization, it will be due to the failed leadership of the current administration.

(9) Western civilization should thank God it has an independently led outpost named Israel to take care of business while we are stuck with the failed leadership of the current administration.

On Safe Computing

Received today in the inbox belonging to a certain resident of a certain apartment community ...

Good Morning Residents,

Due to recent events we will no longer be accepting USB drives to print-out documents. Documents will have to be e-mailed to [email address redacted] and the files to be printed (not to exceed 10 pages) must be in Microsoft Word or PDF format, no other formats will be accepted.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter,

"Recent events"? Yeah - that means somebody was carrying around a disease ridden thumb drive ready to take down any digital citizen dumb enough to let it be stuck into them without taking proper precautions. Proper digital hygiene being of the utmost importance when they are giving storage devices to anybody and everybody, you know.

Be safe out there, kiddies.

Archiving 'This Just In' (5/8/14-6/9/14): Wow, did Barry screw the pooch this time, by trading the Taliban Dream Team for a definite enemy sympathizer, probable deserter, and possible traitor ... without advice, much less consent ... then letting his father pray to Allah in the Rose Garden, then sending out Susan Rice for another round of Sunday talk show lies. Wow.

Jack Wiley Dithers reports Bowe Bergdahl has received a 'care package' from his former platoon mates. It consists of a copy of the non-disclosure agreement the four star bureaucrats from the Pentagon made them sign, a plain paper bag filled with dog sh*t, a bic lighter, and instructions to set the lot on fire.
Quickie Analysis: Barry's Big Arlington National Cemetery Speech, Memorial Day 2014 ... (1) Pats self on back for ending war in Afghanistan. Actually, what he did was launch a half-ass "surge" pre-announcing a withdrawal, resulting in 3/4 of total conflict casualties, and moving the ball from where Bush handed it to him not one single yard. (2) Hand picks a handful of heroes to highlight based on Leftist political criteria around skin color and surname. Alright, if that's the compromise we need to make with the Leftist ideologue for civil speechifying, so be it. (3) Completely glosses over VA scandal. A couple of sentences containing generic bullsh*t, no specific solutions offered. Probably because the best solution involves completely eliminating the VA and just giving vets access to congress' insurance plan. All they have to do is print some cards and mail them out, then turn off the lights at VA. The problem for Barry is, this common sense solution exposes the closest thing we have to "single payer" socialized medicine as the death trap it actually is, and therefore creates an inconvenient news cycle for the Left's evolutionary plans for ObamaKare. In summary: no leadership, no surprise.
OK, on this Memorial Day weekend 2014, my final thoughts have come to me concerning a solution to the Veteran's Administration FUBAR. It's a simple three point point plan. So simple even the hacks in DC's ruling elite could pull it off. (1) Immediately fire every bureaucrat that had anything to do with the secret waiting lists, revoking for all time each one's right for a government job of any kind. (2) Abolish the VA. Those bureaucrats not convicted of secret wait listing may apply for another government job if they so wish. (3) Every vet gets the same health insurance plan we give to congress. I believe the four star bureaucrat named Shinseki will be falling under point (1).
The largest potential market ever (China's) is why Vladmir Putin can take the European market so lightly.
NO MORE G-D CRONY CAPITALIST BAILOUTS! The insurance companies made their bed with Obama, they can sleep in it and take the consequences damn it!
Mary Katherine Hamm has broken the code for understanding the Obama administration's playbook for stonewalling scandals on the Hot Air blog. (hat tip: Pirate's Cove) Next she needs to get off her mistaken idea these hacks didn't come into office with a plan. Jeezus, the guy meant something when he said "...fundamentally transform America." Tactical buffoonery may muddle strategic goals, but it does not exclude them. ObamaKare is the archetypal model of the "end state" in "fundamentally transform," Ms. Hamm. The VA scandal gives us the prototype for bureaucratic obfuscation that will be an integral facet of that end state.
The surname Shinseki sounds Japanese. Shouldn't the Veteran's Administration Secretary be falling on his sword by now? Figuratively, of course. Either fire the people responsible for the secret waiting lists, or get on with the Hari-Kari so somebody else can, General.
If the St. Louis Rams cut Michael Sam in training camp this summer the Left will assure us global warming is to blame. Racism if he makes the squad but a white guy starts ahead of him. Homophobia if he makes the squad, but a black guy starts ahead of him. Koch brothers conspiracy if he makes the squad, gets a lot of snaps, but very few tackles - must have paid those offensive coordinators to single him out in the blocking schemes. If he actually performs well, the petitions to draft him for President in 2016 will start circulating among the Leftists.
THIS is why immigration amnesty is a non-starter until we have an administration willing to enforce existing law. If they were playing catch and release with the undocumented gardeners and housekeepers, that would be one thing. But their own reports reveal they are releasing undocumented murderers, sexual predators, and other career criminals into the so-called "shadows." No deal on amnesty. It's about undocumented Democrat votes for them, and they are already pretty good at manufacturing those.
Ted Cruz has drafted the Articles of Impeachment for the Saul Alinsky Radical Occupying the Oval Office. Let's keep this documentation safe for after the next election, in which Dingy Harry Reid's Praetorian Guard of Democrat lickspittles is scheduled to lose control of the US Senate.

Jack Wiley Dithers Exclusive: Code Name ‘Stands By Man’

(AP) - Jack Wiley Dithers Reporting
“If You Can’t Scoop It, Make It Up.”

Byline: What difference does it make?

I have been lately slipping away surreptitiously to a non-descript parking garage in Foggy Bottom. It is there I have been meeting a former high ranking Obama administration official. I have given her the code name ‘Stands By Man’. To ensure the secrecy of her identity, I can neither confirm nor deny whether she plans to run for President in 2016. The insider information she has provided me in these few unnoticed and unheralded meetings is certain to dramatically alter how historians view the first four years of the Obama administration. Following are some of the more interesting revelations.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton totally wanted to officially label Boko Harum as a terrorist group, but was overruled in the inner circle by Vice President Joe Biden. ‘Stands By Man’ produced a fistful of memorandums dating back to 2008 transition team deliberations to prove it. My crack team of investigative journalists pawned our carbon dating machine to pay last month’s rent, so I am as yet unable to authenticate the age of these memos.

If the Iranians acquire a nuclear weapon it will totally be current Secretary of State John Kerry’s fault. To support this argument, ‘Stands By Man’ has shared an audio recording from a meeting between former Secretary Clinton and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Khamenei is clearly heard saying in his native Persian “Iran renounces the production of nuclear weapons as long as we have Madame Secretary’s word she continues to believe us.” The audio recording is loaded onto an official State Department ‘ObamaPhone’ that my investigators have authenticated as a retirement gift given to former Secretary Clinton.

The ‘ObamaPhone’ given to us by ‘Stands By Man’ also records a briefing outgoing Secretary Clinton gave incoming Secretary Kerry on the topic of Russian expansionism. So Crimea and Ukraine are Kerry’s fault, too. My investigators believe figuring out why the Kerry voice sounds vaguely like former President Bill Clinton holds the key to validating the authenticity of this recording.

‘Stands By Man’ has provided what is apparently a screen shot showing a tweet from Secretary Clinton to President Obama dated 9/11/12. The tweet is linked to an instagram selfie showing Secretary Clinton wearing a camouflage Kevlar pantsuit, and the tweet states ‘here with scary AFRICOM dudes ready for Benghazi rescue, need cross border authority’. As is we all now know, sadly, this authority was never granted.

According to ‘Stands By Man’ Secretary Clinton was copied on several official emails in the days following the Benghazi attack, and these emails demonstrate the YouTube video lie was totally made up by White House advisors Ben Rhodes and Tommy ‘Dude’ Vietor. Secretary Clinton had the foresight to secretly make personal copies of these emails and ‘Stands By Man’ informs us the content, when released, will show Secretary Clinton had nothing to do with it. She also showed me some emails from Clinton to both Rhodes and Vietor reminding them the Park Police officially declared Vince Foster’s death a suicide, in case they needed to be reminded.

We have also been given the draft bill Secretary Clinton wrote to request congressional authorization for military intervention in Libya; as well as evidence of the internal debate Secretary Clinton had with Susan Rice, who argued congressional authorization was unnecessary because it is superseded by UN authority under her ‘Responsibility To Protect’ doctrine. As we all know, Secretary Clinton’s carefully calibrated respect for the constitution was overruled by the Obama inner circle.

‘Stands By Man’ has promised more material blowing the lid off history’s understanding of the inner workings of the Obama administration’s first four years. These include shocking revelations Bo the dog is integral to the decision making processes used to select drone attack targetss, proof the State Department delegation borrowed the famous ‘Russian Reset’ button from Joe Biden’s personal collection of drinking game accessories, and many personal accounts attesting to Secretary Clinton’s role in advising President Obama to do the exact opposite of everything that was done under his foreign policy.

Archiving 'This Just In' (4/28/14 - 5/7/14): My Contempt For Congress Just Diminished a Little Bit Today

Lois Lerner, employee of the people and corrupt Leftist apparatchik, will be slapped with her richly deserved contempt of congress charge today. Lerner can now consider the possibilities for saving her own skin by delivering her political masters to justice – compelled by a contempt of congress charge after asserting a 5th Amendment right she does not enjoy as the people's employee. What I really want to know is: when do we get to see her hauled out of her tony Bethesda crib in cuffs by the law?
Jack Wiley Dithers (JWD) reports it was Ellie Light who fabricated the Benghazi video lie. Dithers also claims it was Ellie Light who came up with 'What Difference Does It Make!' as Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign slogan.
Liars of Benghazi to be held to account by Special House Investigation.Memo to Speaker Boehner: Should have been done two years ago. Don't think this gives you flight clearance for an immigration amnesty bill, either.
What ails the republic in precisely three paragraphs. GDP only grew one tenth of one percent in first quarter 2014, 5 full years into the so-called "recovery" given to us by the progressive geniuses of the Obama administration, and their lickspittles in the corrupt and biased liberal media haven't even noticed. The photograph in the linked post is misguided, though. Wall Street is doing fine. Crony. Capitalism. Takes. Care. Of. Number. One. This is a main street recession.
Disastrous poll for Democrats. They've spun up the youth vote so much, without delivering results, that the poor pitiful idealistic kids are being driven away from voting at all. My comment to the original post is worth repeating here: A sign of Obama Fatigue Syndrome (OFS) among the nation’s utes, which will lead to some reflection, leading perhaps to some mitigation of the Low Information Voter problem.
Kinkophiles will be glad to learn from this Dave Davies BBC interview that he and Ray are getting along well enough (at least for now) to be considering a band reunion. Fantastic news ... but left unaddressed is this question - is Dave getting along well enough with original drummer Mick Avory to let him back in?

Benghazi Truthing, 2014-04-29

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have the YouTube video lie smoking gun.

Makes me nostalgic for a certain little graphic first distributed by this blog project on November 15, 2012.

And it was for these hacks Nakoula Basseley Nakoula went to jail?

We still need to know more about the 10 pm phone call. Hillary.

Update 4/30/2014

Nice revue from the Daily Caller, my favorite bare knuckle political opinion site.

Update 5/5/14

The screenshots below document a cordial January 27, 2014 Daily Caller comment board encounter between yours truly and 'RWBenton' - in which we agree on a plausible conspiracy theory fitting the known facts surrounding the events of September 11, 2012. Basically: Team Hillary secretly had the hapless citizen named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula teed up as a fall guy before anything happened, pulled the trigger on 'Operation YouTube Video' the moment the Islamists went nuts in Cairo, brought Team Barry on board with 'Operation YouTube Video' as the preferred cover story for both Cairo and Benghazi that evening, and it was Team Barry that sent out Susan Rice to the Sunday talking head shows to spread the lie. Memo to House Select Committee: Get to the bottom of the 10 pm phone call.

Disqus, btw, really needs to implement a text search feature on the 'Me' feed. Just sayin'.

Archiving 'This Just In' (4/11/14 - 4/27/14): No Proof Yet of TEA Party Affiliation For Either Cliven Bundy or Donald Sterling

*8 pm 4/27: Updated Sperling (with a 'P') to Sterling with a 'T')

Concerning racist remarks proven to be have been uttered by cattle rancher and grazing fee scofflaw Cliven Bundy, and (probably soon to be) proven to have been uttered by LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling ... the exception proves the rule. Don't overplay your hand with this recent bounty of race warfare riches, Lefties. These two men will pay a price for their racism, we all know it, and you have already cried racist wolf too many times with the rest of us. At least wait until you can prove even one case of TEA Party racism after leveling the charge ad nauseam for the past five years, before trying to capitalize too much on this week's news.
AYFKM? Our state department now proposes to prevent the Red Army from invading Ukraine with a firestorm of ASCII binary code 00100011.
Good Supreme Court decision today upholding Michigan's ban on racial hiring quotas. Combined with tolerating the incompetent reign of the Quota President for six going on eight years now, maybe we can put this whole silly sixty year old white guilt driven 'Affirmative Action' industry behind us eventually after all. For if this group or that group is held to a lower standard in perpetuity, what does that say about what we think of the group in question? It's called the soft bigotry of low expectations, kiddies.
It has begun. Read the comment tussle between me and the anonymous OFA troll 'Fannysyeraunt'. The Left is already gearing up to play off ObamaKare's failures by agitating for a 'Single Payer' solution - which is to say all care and all finances routed through Big Brother's central bureaucracy. As the comment thread demonstrates, they will try to bamboozle the public with cherry picked and carefully packaged data. Like with 'climate change.' My automatic response to this tactic on the 'climate change' front has long been 'explain how the Roman and Medieval Warm Periods in the data fit your theory.' They of course cannot. I'm still working on a stock killer response for the Single Payer argument we will soon be forced into with the Left - but 'British teeth' is pretty good for now I think.
The good news on how the Cliven Bundy / BLM stand off resolved is the BLM withdrew their storm troopers, proving Tyranny still has a long way to go before ruling the day in this republic. The bad news is Bundy actually doesn't have a legal leg to stand on, meaning this was the wrong fight to pick for Team Liberty. Even if the BLM had overreacted, they would have had their apologists picking at Bundy's lack of standing much like the DEA has its apologists for Waco based on David Koresh's weirdness. Now for the really weird part of the current drama ... Dingy Harry Reid seems to have some kind of financial interest in an adjoining piece of property. Coincidence? Methinks not. I'm guessing the funereal Senate Majority Leader (soon to be Senate Minority Leader) is lamenting an unfortunate delay in the progress of his personal financial plan. How's he supposed to buy that land from Uncle Sam for development if those damned cattle are still grazing on it?
Now THIS is technology at work. The perfect storm from a smartphone, stupid crook, and alert 911 dispatcher gives us another story you just couldn't make up.

Sparring in the Dark Alleys of Modern American Opinion (Heartbleed Edition?)

The post title is adapted from my February 11, 2010 post Sparring in the Dark Alleys of Modern American Opinion. In the 2010 post I document a rollicking encounter with a rabid pack of Leftist trolls on a CBS comment board, concerning the issue of the Global Warming hoax. I recommend it as a fun read, representing one of my better contributions to this blog project. The 2010 post neatly documents (with a wry grin) how the Left utilizes the intimidation tactics of the mob to enforce conformity of thought whenever possible.

Today's post is an updated take on the same theme, involving more advanced tactics and techniques. Yesterday I got into it with the anonymous troll who calls himself 'darkknight91' on the Breitbart post Sleeping With the Enemy: Snowden, Putin & 21st Century Tradecraft. The question at hand, appropriately enough, was whether Edward Snowden is patriot or traitor. (For the record, my position on this matter has been well documented from the beginning - the NSA is out of bounds and Snowden is traitor. The NSA has no business engaging in unbounded warrantless domestic surveillance programs, and Snowden had better options for sharing his knowledge than taking his data to foreign enemies of the republic. Yeah, that's right - they are both wrong. Happens sometimes in this crazy world.)

Anyway, 'darkknight91' is apparently Putin's b*tch, just as Snowden has unambiguously proven himself to be. The evidence is contained in the comment thread screenshots I've documented in this post's footnotes. The most interesting aspect of this exchange isn't necessarily the exchange itself - no, it's one particular tactic employed by 'darkknight91.' You see, this particular troll knows (or knew at the time) a cute little parlor trick. After I had thoroughly schooled Junior while still in the realm of the English language, this troll exhibited the magical power to delete my comments.

The question then became ... what is the true scope of this troll's awesome power? Looking over the crime scene, a consistent pattern appeared - he only seemed to possess the capacity to delete the comments of others that were in direct reply to his own. (Or he chose to only exercise the power across this limited scope.)

Rational explantions?

Perhaps the Disqus password used by Breitbart's comment moderator had been compromised and harvested by 'darkknight91'. If so, why hadn't 'darknight91' deleted my other comments (the ones not in direct reply to his own)? Possible explanation for the extreme restraint might be extreme discipline on the part of 'darkknight91,' though his comments on this thread show little sign of discipline.

Perhaps 'darkknight91' is in fact employed by the Breitbart site as a comment moderator himself (which would grant him authority to purge anyone's comments based on his official role)? I find this very unlikely ... I can't see such an anti First Amendment fascist surviving very long in Breitbart's employ.

Most dangerously - perhaps my own Disqus password had fallen into the hands of 'darkknight91'! Again, we have the conundrum posed by the troll's unlikely show of discipline by not wreaking more havoc.

So, what's left? Not sure really. Maybe there is an exploit known among the troll community in the Disqus API, allowing the API programmer to delete child comments from other users knowing identifiers for the parent comment they own. This theory is at least consistent with the idea 'darkknight91' would be expected to utilize his cute little trick to the fullest extent possible.


The question of trollish discipline set aside, we must consider the contribution to this story that may have been made by the now infamous Heartbleed virus. The really sweet (/sarc) part for us end users is we have to wait for our service providers to apply the fix on the servers in the cloud, then tell us all to change our previously compromised passwords. Changing you password before the service provider patches its' servers will do you no good. Near as I can tell, Disqus support claims to be patched as of on or about April 19.

As the disappearance of the magical powers previously possessed by 'darkknight91' seemed to correspond with me resetting my Disqus password, there is some credence to the theory this particular troll is a Heartbleed thief. Why he didn't use it to inflict wider damage on my Disqus presence remains the unanswered question.

Next steps? Common sense Internet citizenship. I will contact Disqus tech support with my evidence. I will ask when specifically was Disqus patched against Heartbleed. I will recommend they take a close look at their API for the possibility of a security hole with linked comments. I will also recommend they investigate their server logs for further evidence of abuse by their user 'darkknight91.' I will also contact Breitbart to ask if their comment moderators have changed their Disqus passwords recently. Maybe I'll also ask them to exercise their legal authority as moderators to restore my original comments. Both of these neteprises (yeah, I think I just invented that word) are growing rapidly and will want to stay on top of any potential public relations issues.


These screenshots were taken last night and are grouped into two collections. The first collection shows the thread after 'darkknight91' selectively deleted my replies. These deletions are still present in the thread as I post this. The second collection consists of the originals from my Disqus profile 'Me' Feed. The relevant comments are tagged in Red as 'removed.' Manually constructing the original original (original squared) would involve a copy and paste exercise. I'm not being paid for this, so I'm not doing that.

Confirmed: Jim Crow Still Alive and Well in Northern Virginia!

I snapped the following picture of a water dispenser while waiting my turn to pee into a cup for a drug screening (and that's all you need to know about that!)

At first I was puzzled by the black and white handle configuration. I'm used to blue for cold and red for hot. With black and white, which is cold and which is hot? Then I tested each and both were cold. There can only be one explanation ... this facility engages in separate but equal water dispensing! Jim Crow lives!

The delusional race hustlers of the National Action Network must be alerted. We need Al Sharpton to get some people marching around in circles and chanting slogans in front of this facility before it's too late.

Archiving 'This Just In' (3/22/14 - 4/10/14): Who's Talking About the *Real* 'War on Women' Anyway?

The Democrats are now running around executing the gender warfare page of their playbook (they really only have three plays in the book: race warfare, class warfare, and gender warfare). It is a political strategy in an election year designed to distract from their failures of governance, chiefly ObamaKare and the economy. This time it's the 'gender pay gap' canard, based on faulty statistics that are based on blended averages that in no way account for measuring equal work. In other words, statistics not properly normalized to measure gender as the only variable with everything else (i.e. equal work) held constant. In other words, useless statistics: or to quote Mark Twain (according to some) - "lies, damned lies, and statistics."
There is, however, one *real* 'war on women' these Donkey Party corruptniks won't be endlessly and breathlessly talking about - Radical Islam's systematic persecution of women. They won't be mentioning Brandeis University's cowardly act of political correctness that denied Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who would be a Leftist feminist heroine if the Left had consistent scruples, the honorary degree she earned with scars inflicted by the brutalizing hand of Radical Islam itself.
I just figured out what's been rubbing me the wrong away about Fox's hot show 'The Five.' They come off like they're not talking to anybody but each other. In that snickering vibe you get from the cool kids' middle school lunch table, as a matter of fact. And they seem to be enjoying the place at the cool kids' lunch table a little too much. It's almost like a high production value cable access show now where a small clique comments on the headlines available to everybody else, and gets off on the self-perceived notoriety from repeating the obvious on the boob tube. I know their format makes it tough, but they need to figure out how to bring in people to talk to that actually add information to the discussion.
Barack Hussein Obama took a Rose Garden victory lap yesterday associated with the announcement of a sophistical seven million number. While the sarcastically partisan staged celebration may have lifted the Empty Suit's spirits for one day, there is still much time between now and November for those spirits to be dampened by a few simple follow up questions: 1. How many enrollees have actually paid in to initiate coverage? 2. How many enrollees were actually previously uninsured? 3. What is the true future cost passed on to state governments by the law's expansion of medicaid? 4. What is the true future cost passed on to taxpayers by the exchange subsidies? Lord knows we won't get any such thing from the corrupt and biased liberal lamestream media, but I think the hacks of the Establishment GOP might get enough grass roots conservative (aka TEA Party) help in this cycle to pull it off. Despite themselves.
April 8: Windows XP R.I.P. As far as I'm concerned, Microsoft could have ended the desktop upgrade scam right there and focused more energy on hardening the enterprise server product line. But they had the money to waste, so ... no harm, no foul?
The vaguely talented left wing comedian Stephen Colbert finds himself in hot twitter water with his Leftist audience. It seems he tried to make light of Daniel Snyder's Native American Bribery Foundation, and Colbert's joke fell flat with fellow race obsessed Lefties. Karma. Defined. And, btw, here's the memo to Dan Snyder: Your bribe will not make them go away permanently. The bribes never do. They will be back in due time. Probably before the Redskins are a legitimate contender under your regime.
THIS is how fascist regimes enlist useful idiots to replace parenthood with fearful worship of the state in the minds of children. Both the principal and the cops in this case richly deserve to lose their jobs without pay, and to be awarded a scarlet 'I', permanently worn as the mark of their Idiocy.
Obama administration English translation for 'Reset' - unilateral disarmament for NATO missile defense system. Putin regime Russian translation for 'Reset' - reclaim Soviet empire territory. Talk about asymmetrical warfare.

On OKCupid, Mozilla, and the Intolerant Tyranny of Leftist Tolerance

In recent days, the tolerance and acceptance that has been widely heaped upon the gay lobby in recent years by the civil society has been repaid in the predictable way - exploitation of a wedge issue by the ever restless Left.

The gay lobby should listen to one of their own, Andrew Sullivan, and cool it - before they find out the hard way the civil society doesn't find bullies to be so fab-u-lous after all.

Charles Krauthammer, and other conservatives, have the right idea for how to handle bullies and the toadies that kowtow to them - push. back. hard.

And to those who argue OKCupid and Mozilla are simply making economic decisions in the free market ... you are quite correct. There are smart decisions, and there are not so smart decisions.

Mozilla may be about to find out the hard way that browser technology is a mere commodity. We can switch between browsers as easily as we switch brands of underwear. It occurs to me Internet dating sites are also quite the commodity. Perhaps there should be a conservative campaign to turn OKCupid into the premier dating site exclusively catering to gays?

Vladmir Putin Convinced to Withdraw From Crimea

The Russian government released the following statement only minutes ago.

The persuasive oration we have been privileged to receive directly from American President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry, two of history's greatest diplomatic masters, has convinced us to observe 21st century protocol and withdraw our military forces back to their original positions inside the post Cold War boundaries of Mother Russia. We now recognize what clumsy oafs we have been on the 21st century international stage and regret behaving like a bunch of 20th century Russian imperialists. We wish to seek forgiveness for our recent sins and to rejoin the community of 21st century nations. Comrade President Putin has ordered all Russian government officials to attend cultural sensitivity training as an acknowledgement of the new 'Reset' diplomatic era. Comrade President Putin is also seriously considering giving back Robert Kraft's super bowl ring and issuing an apology for stealing it in the first place.

Playing 3D Chess With the Empty Chair

In the fall of 2012, the great Clint Eastwood gave us the superbly outrageous 'Empty Chair' meme. I, LibertyAtStake, shall now apply this meme to historical events now unfolding on NATO's frontier.

Putin: So, chair, you think this is no game of chess? I'll show you. I take Crimea. Your move, punk.


Putin: John Kerry! I tweet my flatulence. Kerry's head looks like a giant 'Reset' button to me. I take eastern Ukraine. Your move, punk.


Putin: No, I don't want your insurance plan. The KGB plan has lower premiums and a better network. Hmmmm ...summer is nice in Estonia1 ...

To be continued.

Archiving 'This Just In' (3/2/14 - 3/18/14): "Pay No Attention to the Man behind the Curtain" .... Nobody "controls" the Internet!

I can no longer stand all the blubbering on the Right about “losing sovereignty” and “giving up control of the Internet” just because ICANN’s contract with the Department of Commerce is up for renewal in 2015. The italicized excerpt is my comment to a NewsBusters post having the title 'Networks Yawn as Obama Administration Gives Away the Internet.'

I'm yawning. The US isn't "giving up control of the Internet." Nobody "controls" the Internet. The proposal is simply to transfer stewardship over the low level administrative function of making sure addresses are unique and routable. Until 1998 it was literally one guy at USC. Since 1998 it has been a bunch of non-profit IT geeks called ICANN with a Deprtment of Commerce contract. With IP v6 there are 2 to the 128th power possible ip addresses and associated domain names. Nobody is in danger of running out anytime soon. It's no more insidious than the international cooperation that is necessary to ensure phone calls connect worldwide. Except you pretty much get to pick your own block of phone numbers from a practically unlimited range and all you have to do is register them to make them uniquely routable. Holding this database of unique location identifiers offers no more security access to the locations themselves than the postman knowing my address offers access to everything in my home. Plus, if I do it right, everything in every letter (ip packet) the guy handles is encrypted so that only I can read it. Yawn.

I should have also mentioned none of this has anything to do with the actual activity of routing Internet packets. That is accomplished by the incomprehensibly deep redundancy of all the Domain Name Servers out there, too numerous to count, to which the entire database is continuously propagated.

Nobody is taking our Internet away. Nobody can. That’s why it’s the greatest 1st Amendment weapon in history. Every entry level sys admin everywhere essentially has a complete image of the Internet's topology. Focus, people! The issue for Liberty vs. Tyranny 2014 is ObamaKare.
There are reports some precincts in the Crimean secession vote yesterday had more votes than living souls. Well, if any American President can pin this type of corruption on someone else it should be OFA's political leader!
The only solution to this "dilemma" is a blanket order deputizing all First Responders as ICE agents. Only in Obama's America could an illegal immigrant dare to go on the top rated cable news TV channel to press his case for a civil lawsuit against the very people who saved him from drowning. The watery motif also bring s back to mind that old lawyer joke ... "What do you call a thousand lawyers at the bottom of the sea? A good start."
Why is Bolshevik thug Vladmir Putin annexing Crimea? Because he wants a friendly puppet government in Kiev running Ukraine according to his wishes. And because he can. He wants domain over the people of Ukraine because Russian imperialism (whether czarist or communist) is alive and well, despite the naive and bungled 'reset' diplomacy of the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy regime. He can because he sees retreat and retrenching in every move made by the naive and bungling Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy regime. Three things our so-called national leadership should be doing right now (but isn't) ... (1) freeze every single dollar of wealth the Russian thugocracy has stashed in western assets, (2) forward deploy significant offensive military formations to NATO's new eastern frontier in Poland, Slovakia, Romania, and Hungary (a short drive to Kiev), (3) start exporting America's abundant supply of natural gas to Europe to begin severing their dependence on Russian pipelines. I might add a fourth project - build time machine to go back to 2009 with today's newspaper in order to convince the newly elected Chicago Community Organizer that cancelling ABM defense for NATO is not a good idea. Nah, the odds of success would be too long ... not of building the machine, but of convincing the Whirled Peas ideologue.
There is great irony in the corrupt IRS apparatchik Lois Lerner seeking constitutional protection in the 5th Amendment - when she is clearly guilty of scheming to abuse her official powers to deny her political enemies their 1st Amendment rights. In any event, unfortunately for her, she was too loquacious in her May 2013 testimony to Congress. When she asserted she did nothing wrong she effectively waived her right to hide behind the Fifth. The next logical step is to hold her in contempt of Congress and let her think about her options behind bars for awhile. I would advise Ms. Lerner to choose the orange jump suit over the striped two piece. She seems more of a fall in terms of fashion.
Oh yeah, have I mentioned ... when it comes to high stakes international poker - always take the KGB Colonel over the Community Organizer. Putin's line that the Russian soldiers in Crimea spontaneously generated is especially entertaining. He will get away with it.
Quick note on the human capacity to learn from experience. I have been very accurately (trust me, very accurately) measured by the Myers-Briggs instrument as an INTJ. The dead on proof of the human capacity to learn from experience is this line from the linked Wikipedia article: "Perhaps the most fundamental problem [with INTJs], however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense." I have based every analysis for god knows how long on the sure knowledge they almost never do.
The italicized excerpt is my concluding remarks from a Daily Caller comment board encounter. I have reprinted it here because it neatly encapsulates my position on immigration amnesty, crony capitalism, and why the US Chamber is on the wrong side of the issue. Also note I waited an entire day for my sparring partner to answer a simple and direct question. He did not - the dead on sign I was sparring with a paid troll. Probably paid by the US Chamber.

Since you have avoided answering my simple, direct question for an entire day (What number of employees constitutes "big" on your scale?), I will give you the reply I already had teed up. In my experience, it is just above 100 employees where the pressures of making the payroll creates pressures transforming company leaders from entrepreneurs with the best intentions to naked capitalists. At that relatively smallish (compared to GE) scale, the math of meeting a payroll, maintaining cash flow, and staying profitable with shrinking margins is very daunting. The corporate leader will begin to cut corners, such as taking on the habits of the crony capitalist. It may start with seeking favors from local politicians and zoning boards. It can certainly include joining a trade association (such as the US Chamber) in the hopes of aggregating into an entity with the scale Jeff Immelt's GE has to hire lobbyists to create loopholes that allow GE to pay zero taxes. Agri-business, construction, restaurants (fast, slow, and in-between) with 100+ employees … how many of these smart capitalists valuing cheap labor to help tight margins do you think there might be? By your own description, most would be Chamber members, no? The solution to crony capitalism is neither more cheap labor nor demonizing these employeers. The solution is removing gub'ment's power to grant special favors to the employers that the rest of us pay for.
Those Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (VRWC) liars who, according to Dingy Harry Reid, have been smearing the glorious roll out of ObamaKare with dastardly lies are now building Mardi Gras floats to spread their lies. I expect Team Obama to blame the spontaneous demonstration represented by these floats on a Koch Brothers funded YouTube video.

Archiving 'This Just In' (2/5/14 - 2/18/14): The Speaker of the Other Party of Government Needs to Go

A few words on DC’s recent passage of a “clean” (i.e. unconditional) bill to raise the debt ceiling, in the style of ‘LAS the Predictor.’ (1) It will contribute to deeper Democrat losses in the 2014 midterm elections. Because nothing brings out voters like anger, and the angry bloc this year is fiscally conservative. (2) But, not so fast, Establishment GOP cronies. Don’t count on 2014 being a boon election for you, either. The principled grass roots conservative (i.e. TEA Party affiliated) caucus within the GOP will increase in strength. Because nothing brings out voters like anger, and the angry bloc this year is fiscally conservative. (3) The leadership challenged Campaigner-In-Chief will spend his last two years in office complaining about a do-nothing Congress, while he does nothing to negotiate with the co-equal branch of government about doing things . (4) The constitutionally challenged Saul Alinksy Radical Occupying the Oval Office will continue to push the limits of lawless governance with increasingly blatant unconstitutional unilateral executive actions. (5) The republic will survive because the Founders gave us a brilliantly designed, tyranny resistant, system of governance featuring divided powers. For example, I believe we will see the House exercise the power of the purse with more vigor in the coming years. That means cutting off the Executive branch’s allowance for those unfamiliar with how the constitution works.

I believe Speaker Boehner would have liked to have attached a spending restraint condition to the debt ceiling bill. I also believe he could have accomplished this if he approached the problem differently. He foolishly tried to present a lame condition he came up with himself (cleaning up the veteran’s benefits mess left over from the budget deal ) to the TEA Party caucus as a fait accompli. Wrong time, wrong bill. Not only does it increase the debt bottom line (the opposite of a restraint condition!), but it was also transparently an insider political gift to Paul Ryan. More spending *and* more pork barrel … it’s almost as if Boehner set out to piss off his future party leaders. (The veteran’s benefit cuts were restored the very same day in a separate “clean” bill with overwhelming bi-partisan support, proving how lame the Speaker invented quid-pro-quo was. But, if nothing else, this trend toward smaller bills is a good thing.)

There were other, much better, conditions to attach. I liked Keystone XL pipeline approval. It would have created a favorable debate context in which to explain the principle of debt reduction by economic growth. Plus it would have put Obama into a pickle with the gaia worshiping enviro-wacko Left, as well as the 80% of the public that doesn’t understand why he just doesn’t approve it already. Charles Krauthammer suggested attaching a provision preventing any bail outs for the insurance companies from the ObamaKare train wreck. Also an argument the GOP could have won with TEA Party caucus support. If Boehner had exercised a little different leadership style, engaging the TEA Party caucus to solicit ideas on what to attach, these and other superior ideas would have surfaced. The Speaker of the Other Party of Government needs to be replaced and the mid-term elections of 2014 will make that clear.
Federal government closed today due to standard issue nor'easter snow storm. My back of the envelope calculations have determined the republic will save eight gazillion bazillion trazillion dollars in compliance costs, from regulations not published today. Any more of this 'climate change' and Obama's economy might actually create a real full time job.
NBC's coverage of the winter olympics has included giving us an empathetic portrayal of the all time statistical leader for genocide in the 20th Century Ideologies competition.
Speaker Boehner has announced the perfect condition for moving forward with an immigration bill. The Saul Alinsky Radical Occupying the Oval Office must convincingly demonstrate he is enforcing the laws currently on the books. Even the most casual observer knows selective enforcement of the laws (an impeachable offense in my opinion, and many others) has been a core feature of this administration's mad rush to 'fundamentally transform' us. This quid-pro-quo forces the corruptniks in this radical administration to justify their unconstitutionally ideological executive practices. Well done, Speaker.
Soon it will be time to pick the best fight to have over our now ritualistic semi-annual debt ceiling debacle. I'm partial to tying approval of the Keystone XL pipeline to adding another couple of trillion to the national credit card. The recently released State Department analysis leaves no reason not to approve the multitude of jobs it will create. Bringing this issue to the forefront puts Obama in a pickle with the only people who object - the 20% (at most) of the voting public belonging to his gaia worshiping fringe Leftist base. But, who knows, maybe the Speaker will come up with a better condition. He's on a roll now.
Has the GOP gone mad? One of their hacks actually thinks it's a good idea to require every single driver in America to keep meticulous records of mileage driven and pay a "mileage tax." Orwellian, supremely impractical, and fraught with the potential for fraud. We're supposed to leave that stuff to the real party of government. It's news like this that earns the GOP the title The Other Party of Government.
Local news anchor informs me this morning it is 'National Weatherperson Day.' I can see why it is a group recognition, as opposed to individual awards like the Oscars or something. I get exactly the same predictive data regardless of which 'Weatherperson' outlet I access, the time horizon for reliable prediction is exactly the same for all (24-36 hrs), and when they are wrong they are all wrong at the same time.

The First Five Laws For The Internet Darwin Awards

By now you know the template. Dummy posts something wholly inappropriate or utterly embarrassing on the Internet. Dummy is mocked mercilessly by friends, enemies, and strangers alike. Dummy learns the hard way delete doesn't really mean delete on the Internet, not as long as anybody has a free screen capture utility.

It's the careless ute blasting out a tasteless selfie on Instagram. The overpaid and barely talented Hollywood thespian tweeting out vulgar charges concerning topics and movements she knows nothing about. The Facebook post by the bungling criminal that leads the cops to his door.

Thus I call for the formation of an annual Internet Darwin Awards modeled on the original. And I begin this call with the presentation of the first Five Laws to guide its development.

Law 1: All human beings are born in Original Ignorance.

Law 2: Each human being is randomly assigned an individually discrete capacity to learn.

Law 3: Each human being learns an individually discrete capacity to act discreetly.

Law 4: The Internet presents an illusion that everyone is your friend.

Law 5: The Internet never forgets.

Archiving 'This Just In' (1/20/14 - 2/214): That Prep Time to Fun Time Ratio Reminds Me of Something

On a lark yesterday, picked up a couple of cheap toy remote control helicopters. Even found the perfect environment for playtime with my teenage son - an enclosed racquetball court. While becoming competent at hovering mine, learning to crash less often, and dodging the kamikaze attacks from my son's machine, it became clear why the Jetson's vision of flying cars has not been realized during my lifetime. Also, the preparation procedures clarified why the Department of Energy - a very well funded federal agency that has a habit of endowing "green energy" administration crony start-up companies with taxpayer funded loans bankruptcy "investments" - has failed to bring us the mass produced electric car. Charge time 30 minutes = flight time 6 minutes. Hmmmmmmm.
After delivering a State of the Union address that drove the nation to drink, the Campaigner-In-Chief is running around the country doing the only thing he ever really knew how to do - delivering red meat political speeches to hand-picked friendly audiences. The problem he has now is everyone will soon notice that this trick, the only trick he has ever really known, is doing nothing to improve his sorry a$$ poll ratings. The Empty Suit has a record now, and no amount of speechifying can fix it.
In last night's monumental waste of time State of the Union address, the second biggest applause line (second only to the obligatory standing O for the wounded war vet) was after the Redistributionist-In-Chief trotted out that old leftist talking point about equal pay for equal work for women. What this signals politically is Team Leftie will be out there maniacally executing the gender warfare chapter of their playbook to promote Hillary's 2016 run at the Oval Office. Some prominent conservatives - Rand Paul comes to mind - have apparently noticed this, but are taking the wrong counter-measure. Paul and others are resurrecting the Lewinsky sex and lies scandal as an attempt to discredit Hillary's credibility. This is a mistake, as it paints Hillary a sympathetic victim and enhances the victim hood politics of Team Leftie's gender warfare strategy. Better to just stay focused on Hillary's empty public record of "accomplishment." Hammer on, in descending order: (1) The leadership failure before Benghazi coupled with the YouTube video lie invented during Benhghazi (literally while the firefight was still hot) and propagated after Behngahzi, (2) HillaryCare (1993) was the original ObamaCare, only even more bureaucratic and Big Brother inspired, and (3) yeah, did you know her college thesis was about Saul Alinksy? In other words, make sure the people know electing Hillary is electing the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama to a third term - except it's an empty pant suit filled with a white female stealth Saul Alinsky radical this time.
Last week the hacks of the Establishment GOP (aka the RNC) met to strategerize the 2016 nomination cycle. The two time losers to the Saul Alinsky Radical Occupying the Oval Office believe Mittens lost the general in 2012 because his coronation wasn’t easy enough. They want to shorten the length of the primary season, have an earlier convention, and have fewer debates. They think Mittens was ‘pulled too far to the right' in the primaries. Wrong. Mittens lost because he was the perfect ‘Richie Rich’ caricature to be pilloried by the class warfare demagoguery of the Left. If anything, the competitive primaries pulled Mittens out of the crony capitalist bubble in which the Establishment GOP (the other party of government) lives, and gave him a chance to win the general.

I saw one of the hacks on TV say he didn’t want anyone like Newt rising in the next primary. Translation: ‘Don’t pop my crony capitalist bubble, dude.’ As I explained repeatedly on this blog in 2012, Newt was their only chance to break through voter ADD and media bias to win in 2012 - because Newt was by far the best debater. On today’s uneven political playing field, debates are the only forum on which anyone not tagged (D) can break through. Mittens' poll bump during his uninspiring performance against the Empty Suit during the 2012 debates proved it. (Newt, of course, would have had the chops to go for the kill on that stage.) So, how does less debate help us identify the best debater? It doesn’t.
It begins. The wave of employer based health plan cancellations is already underway. Neither the Leftists who gave us the Train Wreck Known as ObamaKare,nor their propagandists in the legacy media, can spin the economic realities for these employers. "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" is destined to be remembered as the lie that launched one of two socio-political waves. I believe it will be a living monument to government incompetence launching a new small government libertarian gestalt. But it's still entirely possible it launches, in a twisted Machiavellian way, the excuse for the Left to make a successful argument for Single Payer. Maybe the campaign slogan will be something like "If you like your ObamaCare, you will love Single Payer."
Federal government closed today for a few inches of snowflakes. Jack Wiley Dithers has intercepted and decoded an encrypted cable from the White House to the Park Service, invoking Executive Order 1800FU, which initiates Operation Barrycade whenever the government is shut down.
Today is Day 1 of a deal struck between a committee of experts and bureaucrats representing the civilized world (lead by Monsieur John Kerry-Heinz), and the Shi'ite mullahs of Tehran. The civilized world agrees to lift economic sanctions on Iran, and the mullahs agree to pretend to give up their dream of producing a nuclear bomb (the better to put the fear of Mohammed into infidels). The civilized world believed the cover story offered by the mullahs, in which they are interested in nuclear power for generating electricity - even though Iran sits on a veritable sea of fossil fuels. (Note global warming is not recognized by Islam as valid canon. The only religion elevating global warming to sacred mythology is the atheist Left.)

Many pundits are now saying an Iranian nuclear bomb is inevitable, and we will be forced to adopt a policy of 'containment.' This won't be your father's Cold War era 'containment' - in which the nukes were handled in plain view by uniformed military forces bound by the Geneva Conventions. Iran is also recognized as the leading state sponsor of terror on this planet.

LibertyAtStake's SOTU Drinking Game

Drinking Games related to specific words expected to be repeated during the empty and predictable pontifications of the Empty Suit Known As Barack Hussein Obama during SOTU 2014 have been designed by the multitudes. Why is this necessary? Here's my drinking advice of the moment ... whatever it takes to keep from throwing something through your TV. The bum has no gas left in his tank.

Update 9:25 pm The golf claps are just overwhelming.

Update 9:55 pm The ObamaKare pitch devolves into bad stand up comedy.

Update 10:15 pm By orders of magnitude, we get the biggest applause line. The Community-Agitator-In-Chief is reduced to basking in the reflected glory of the wounded war vet.

Update 10:20 pm That was excruciating. Hope your TV survived. Hope you aren't too hung over for work tomorrow. If you still have a job in Barry's Dysconomy, that is.

Update - 9:30 am in the harsh light of the following morning The awful spectacle might have left less of a scar had I been following Greg Gutfeld on Twitter.
