Called It (More or Less)

Another Safe Prediction for 2014 is coming true.

A Democrat congressman, senator, or governor will be found to have engaged in sexual misconduct; the MFM will protect him per Standard Operating Procedure unless defending him becomes politically untenable.

And now, Congressman Alan Grayson (D-Florida), the uncouth braying loudmouth who runs down people in his car and is a massive hero to the progressive left… allegedly smacked his wife around.

A judge has granted a temporary protective injunction against U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson after his wife filed paperwork accusing the Orlando congressman of shoving and injuring her during an incident this past weekend.

Sexual Misconduct/Domestic violence… they both go into the ‘War on Womyn’ hypocrisy file. Besides which, he supports unlimited abortion and free birth control, so by the usual standards of the Democrats, he’s a hero no matter how many women he abuses.

Update: In 2012, Alan Grayson falsely accused his Republican opponent of “beating his wife.”

Update (from Jeff): Grayson denies having abused Lolita Grayson. Let’s coin an appropriate phrase, shall we?. “I BELIEVE YOU, LOLITA!”

Russia threatens financial retaliation if Obama proceeds with sanctions

I’m amazed to see financial threats being made this openly. Like real military threats, real financial threats are usually made via backchannels. But, then again, President Obama has threatened Russia openly with sanctions.

MOSCOW, March 4 (RIA Novosti) – An adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that authorities would issue general advice to dump US government bonds in the event of Russian companies and individuals being targeted by sanctions over events in Ukraine.

Sergei Glazyev said the United States would be the first to suffer in the event of any sanctions regime…

Glazyev noted that Russia is a creditor to the United States.

“We hold a decent amount of treasury bonds – more than $200 billion – and if the United States dares to freeze accounts of Russian businesses and citizens, we can no longer view America as a reliable partner,” he said. “We will encourage everybody to dump US Treasury bonds, get rid of dollars as an unreliable currency and leave the US market.”

Is it just bluster? As recently as last year, the answer would be yes. But China holds approximately $1 trillion in U.S. Treasury bonds; and if Russia ‘goes there’, China will not want to be left behind.

And for several years now, China has been working with its partners (including Russia, Japan, Brazil, the UK, France and Germany) to set up facilities for trade & finance that would enable them, collectively and at long last, to be independent of the U.S. dollar. Even before this crisis, some experts were predicting that 2014-15 would see those efforts bear fruit.

Leave it to John F.-n Kerry and Barack Obama to be just stupid enough to push Russia and China further along a road that they are already well-and-gladly on.

Russia’s threat also comes via its Foreign Ministry: (more…)

Whole Foods and the Entitlement Mentality

This is a read-the-whole-thing sort of deal, an excerpt will not do the story justice. The heart of it is an over-entitled, self-centered, forty-something vegan child-man (“Birdman”) who pitches a fit in a Chicago-area ‘Whole Foods’ because he deems the staff insufficiently accommodating.  You just *know* the guy is an Obama voter; albeit probably one who considers Obama “a little too center-right for my tastes.”

I think about that evening every time I walk into a Whole Foods during rush hour. I look for the tell-tale signs of another Birdman—impatience, over-reaction, constipated rage—and I find it every time. Then I wonder, why are these people all so angry? Is it something about Whole Foods that brings it out of them? Is it just their proximity to other miserable souls just like them? Is it the outward projection of inner self-loathing brought on by the feeling of utter helplessness in the face of social pressure to pay higher prices for organic, GMO-free, gluten-free, paleo, macro, whole foods?

I would bet if you asked all these angry, hateful trolls trundling to their hybrids in the parking lot trying to reconcile a $200 grocery bill with three measly paper bags full of groceries, they’d say No. They’d say they have to shop at Whole Foods because of something someone else in their family likes that they can’t find anywhere else. They always have an explanation, but it’s really just an excuse. They try to justify it, but it’s always a rationalization.

And Now a Few Things Sarah Palin Was Mocked Relentlessly For That She Turned Out to be Totally Right About

1. Death Panels.

During the Health Care debate of 2009-10, Sarah Palin recognized that Obamacare could not possibly meet its promises of “more care, for more people, costing less money,” and that the inevitable result would be that Government bureaucrats would pick and choose which people would have how much access to which care; and the the sick and the elderly (at least those without political connections) would be hardest hit. The shorthand for this system she called “Death Panels.” (In the UK’s NHS, these are known as NICE.) And the Obama left mocked her relentlessly, and Politifact (who are also part of the Obama left) called her a liar.

She has since been vindicated. Left-wing economist Paul Krugman says death panels are needed to control health care costs.  And Democrats have admitted that IPAB, Obamacare’s cost-control body, functions essentially as a Death Panel.  And even journalists so in the tank for Obama they wear scuba gear to work admit she was right about death panels.

2. “Drill, Baby, Drill.”

In 2008, Sarah Palin had the audacity to suggest that developing domestic hydrocarbon reserves should be a cornerstone of economic policy and energy independence, she was mocked relentlessly by the know-it-alls on the left, who supported Obama’s vision of energy prices that must “necessarily skyrocket” in order to usher in an age of an economy powered by wind, solar power, and unicorn farts. (Note: The economy of the 18th Century was also wind and solar-powered.)

Now in 2014, we see that states that have adopted domestice energy development as policy, such as Texas and North Dakota, have booming economies while the rest of the country (except for the National Capital Region) stagnates and declines. And even Obama himself brags about how much energy is being produced, despite his best efforts to stop it.

3. Russia as a Geopolitical Adversary.

Sarah Palin was attacked in 2008 for suggesting that Russia would be encouraged to invade Ukraine if they perceived the USA as weak and ineffectual. The brilliant leftists at Foreign Policies mocked her scenario as “far-fetched.” And of course, we know how that one worked out.

The real kicker to this is that Sarah Palin was right about all of these things, and Obama and all his dear little sycophants were wrong.  That must drive them nuts, yes? To be consistently out-smarted by a woman they regard as so very, very stupid.
