Taliban Celebrate Their Latest Victory

The Taliban must be beside themselves in awe of their amazing luck in getting Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States. His de facto abandonment of Afghanistan means that a return to power by the Taliban is pretty much inevitable. And then on Friday, the Taliban was delighted to have five members of their top leadership released by President Obama in exchange for an American POW widely believed to be a deserter.

 In rare public statement, Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar hailed the five-for-one trade and thanked Qatar for mediating the deal.

“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire Afghan Muslim nation, all the mujahideen and to the families and relatives of the prisoners for this big victory,” the world’s No. 1 terrorist said.

The president who won’t give an inch to Republicans seems very comfortable giving away entire countries to Mohammedan terrorists, and releasing Islamist War Criminals from Guantanamo.

Bergdahl’s pappy gave a pretty interesting speech at news that his son had been exchanged for five of the Taliban’s most brutal terrorists.

At the end of brief event, the soldier’s father, Bob Bergdahl, recited the most frequent phrase in the Koran — “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim” —which means “In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate.”

After Bergdahl finished his statement and his praise for Allah, Obama hugged him.

The Taliban echoed Bergdahl, saying the trade happened “due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate.”

Imagine if FDR had traded Josef Mengele, Adolph Eichmann, Heinrich Himmler, Josef Goebbels, and Ernst Kaltenbrunner to the Nazis in exchange for one American deserter; and during the announcement of the release, the deserter’s father had yelled “Heil, Hitler!” That’s pretty much what happened here.

[Comparisons to the German National Socialist Workers Party are usually way over-the-top, but considering the goals and methods of the Taliban Islamists, they may actually fit in this case. Agree or Disagree?]

Obama Arrives at West Point with an Army of Straw Men

Posted by V the K at 7:01 pm - May 28, 2014.
Filed under: Obama Arrogance,Post 9-11 America

In light of the VA scandal and the announcement of a unilateral withdrawal from Afghanistan, President Obama felt the need to appear “pro-military” and so gave the commencement address to the military academy at West Point.

Obama is a master in the use of the straw man argument. He attributes outrageous positions to his opponents, so as to make his own positions appear reasonable. Usually, is the formulation “Some say we should wipe out the entire state of Nebraska with a series of carpet bombings and nuclear strikes. But I believe the smarter option is to not build the Keystone XL pipeline.”

His speech at West Point, which of course was not written by him, was replete with examples of the genre.

For the foreseeable future, the most direct threat to America at home and abroad remains terrorism. But a strategy that involves invading every country that harbors terrorist networks is naive and unsustainable.

No one has ever advocated invading every country that harbors terrorists.

“I would betray my duty to you, and to the country we love, if I sent you into harm’s way simply because I saw a problem somewhere in the world that needed fixing, or because I was worried about critics who think military intervention is the only way for America to avoid looking weak.”

No one has suggested that the USA’s foreign policy should be based on intervening everywhere for the sake of not appearing week.

“Of course, skeptics often downplay the effectiveness of multilateral action. For them, working through international institutions, or respecting international law, is a sign of weakness. I think they’re wrong.”

Again, “unnamed skeptics” oppose multilaterialism and following international law.

“Those who argue otherwise – who suggest that America is in decline, or has seen its global leadership slip away – are either misreading history or engaged in partisan politics.”

Or they’re just paying attention. Obviously, the only people who note that Iran, Russia, and China have been emboldened by American weakness and fecklessness are only doing so for reasons of “partisan politics;” there is no such thing as legitimate, rational criticism of Mr. Obama’s flawless foreign policy.

Your charge now is not only to protect our country, but to do what is right and just.

Because until Obama came along, what the military did was wrong and unjust.

The man is not only a megalomaniac and a narcissist, he’s also a tedious bore.

Climate Change Believer Lays Out Completely Rational and Scientific Argument

Posted by V the K at 8:52 am - May 23, 2014.
Filed under: Post 9-11 America

“Give all power and money to the Government to stop Climate Change or you’ll be forced to eat the corpses of your loved ones,” goes the completely reasonable and non-hysterical line of argument.

(Paul) Ehrlich, a Stanford University biologist famous for his widely debunked book “The Population Bomb,” doubled down on his climate change and overpopulation fear-mongering with HuffPost Live on May 21. Ehrlich warned host Josh Zepps that the dangers of overpopulation are growing, blaming Republicans and the media for failing to take action. While hawking a new book called “Hope On Earth,” Ehrlich’s co-author Michael Tobias praised Ehrlich’s older, outrageously wrong predictions and said they underestimated the problem.

(video after break)

Ehrlich, after falsely predicting  human “oblivion” 46 years ago, told Zepps humans must soon begin contemplating “eat[ing] the bodies of your dead” after resources are depleted.

In ‘The Population Bomb,’  Ehrlich made totally rational and scientific predictions that famine would obliterate half of the Earth’s human population by the mid 1980′s. About twenty years ago, he switched his apocalyptic alarmism from overpopulation to Climate Change. He is hailed as a Prophet among Climate Change believers.

Socialized Health Care Working Out Just Fine at the VA

The Veteran’s Administration — cited by leftists as an ideal paradigm of Socialized Health Care — is in the midst of a scandal that is largely being ignored by the MFM because it would make President Obama, and indeed the entire enterprise of Government run health care look bad.

The broad outline of the scandal is like this. Bureaucrats at the VA medical center in Phoenix, Arizona allowed 40 patients to die while awaiting treatment. The bureaucrats kept a secret waiting list to cover up delays while a fake list was maintained for official purposes. Over 1,600 patients were kept waiting, some for over a year to get an appointment with a doctor. Hospitals in New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado apparently were doing the same thing. And apparently, the VA was also denying treatment and tests to patients to save money.

Meanwhile VA Bureaucrats spent $5oo Million on office makeovers and redecorating. Priorities, don’tcha know.

The Obama Administration has no interest in investigating the scandal. What a surprise.

So, the leftists were right; the VA is a paradigm for Government-run health care. Bureaucrats provide shoddy treatment while feathering their own nests, then they lie about it, and there is no accountability.

Anything the Government runs is going to be run primarily for the benefit of the bureaucracy; be it health care, welfare, or public education. Conservatives understand this.

Leftists just find a way to blame the Koch Brothers. (Not kidding, they actually did this.)

People who gather, non-violently, to protect a rancher from having his cattle taken, his family assaulted, and his possessions taken by armed agents of a corrupt Government bureaucracy – “Domestic Terrorists.”  (According to Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid).

Islamist Group “Boko Haram” that butchers Christians in West Africa, and kidnaps Christian children to sell into slavery — “Not Terrorists” — (According to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s State Department).

And the Minimum Wage Bidding War Continues

Posted by V the K at 3:57 pm - May 3, 2014.
Filed under: Economy,Post 9-11 America

Topping Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s $15-an-hour minimum wage, and even Native American Senator Elizabeth Warren’s $22-an-hour minimum wage, an even more economically illiterate Democrat… California Representative Barbara Lee … thinks the minimum wage should be $26 an hour.

“Let me ask you this question, you’re a good advocate for this,” Gingrich asked Lee. “The mayor of Seattle is proposing that the minimum wage ought to go up to $15 an hour.”

“Good for him,” Lee responded. “In California — more than likely, from what I remembered — a living wage where people could live and take care of their families and move toward achieving the American dream was about $25, $26 an hour.”

“So would you support that as a minimum wage for California?” Gingrich asked.

“Absolutely I would support it for California.”

This economic program should be very popular among voters who ain’t never seen no plant growing out of no toilet

Demilitarizing the Federal Bureaucracy

Why is the US Postal Service stockpiling ammunition? Also, why is the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration stockpiling ammunition? And why is the Social Security Administration stockpiling ammunition?

Why does the EPA have SWAT Teams? And why does the Department of Education have SWAT Teams? And why do the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service all have SWAT Teams?

None of these bureaucracies are law enforcement agencies. It makes no sense for them to have armed, much less paramilitary, units.

A Republican (of course) Congressman from Utah is contemplating a bill to defund the paramilitary operations of regulatory bureaucracies. He will no doubt be attacked as a radical, extremist, Whackobird… because that’s what happens to anyone who proposes common sense reform measures these days.

Views of Edward Snowden

Hillary thinks he’s a traitor. She recently said:

When he emerged and when he absconded with all that material, I was puzzled because we have all these protections for whistle-blowers. If he were concerned and wanted to be part of the American debate, he could have been…It’s sort of odd that he would flee…I don’t understand why he couldn’t have been part of the debate here at home. He could have quit, he could have taken whistleblower protection…

But to high school kids, he’s a hero:

[GWU admissions officer] Freitag skimmed the extracurriculars, read the first essay, rated it good. GW also asks students to list a role model and two words to describe themselves. As for herself, Freitag said, she would list “Martha Stewart/Tina Fey” and “sassy/classy.” This year, she’s seeing a lot of Edward Snowden citations.

So whose view is right? Hillary’s, or the schoolkids’?

I must say this much: I don’t believe Hillary for one second when she talks about “whistleblower protections”, like she always honors them. I think that Snowden may have been right to fear for his life (not only his freedom), if should stay in the U.S. and try to play that game. And after seeing the U.S. government grow hideously out-of-control in the last 6-8 years, I would rather know about the NSA spying, than not.

So, on present information, I think it’s possible for Snowden to be both traitor (on foreign payroll?) and hero.

UPDATE: Meant to blog on these items sooner. They speak to the losses of liberty and privacy that we have suffered, in the last few years.

More Derangement from Pelosiland

Nancy Pelosi’s constituents have turned on Silicon Valley in a big way. As reported here earlier, there’s this big movement against companies like Google and Facebook providing buses to transport their employees from their homes in the city to their Company Cult Compounds. Today, the sophisticated progressives of San Francisco raised the intellectual level of their debate by puking on a bus; not by getting motion sickness during a long bus ride, but actually climbing on top of a bus for the purpose of puking on its windshield.

As a form of protest, it’s still better than what they did to Brendan Eich.

So, I’m reading that story and I’m thinking, “The left condemns people for living in the city and taking mass transportation to get to their jobs, for causing “gentrification. But, they also condemn people who live in the suburbs and commute to work for causing ‘urban sprawl.’”

You can’t win an argument with deranged people.

Also, someone in SFO has been flipping over SMART cars. Or maybe it was just windy last night.

Speaking of Silicon Valley, watching the first episode of Mike Judge’s new HBO series would not be a waste of half an hour. (The increasingly deranged and irrelevant Roger Ebert hated it, so there’s that.)

Notes from the Angry, Stupid, Progressive Left

Posted by V the K at 10:01 am - March 29, 2014.
Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs,Post 9-11 America

The angry, deranged children of the left have been busy this week. In addition to turning hatred-fueled vitriol on a black Republican for leaving the plantation, going nanners over Stephen Colbert’s satirical tweet and the use of the term “homosexuals” to describe homosexuals, yet another call for Climate Change skeptics to be arrested and tried as heretics, and throwing a hissy-fit over America’s Single Most Important Issue — Infant Circumcision — the progressive left found some other occasions to behave consistently within expectations.

Progressive Talk-Radio Host Mike Malloy threatened to murder NRA Board Members:

“The NRA, which they’re behind this of course, they want guns everywhere….I would like to invite one of the NRA board members, and I’ll be armed, let’s just get this over with, OK? Come on down to Georgia and I’ll be packing heat and you be packing heat or whether you want to or not, I don’t give a damn, it’s up to you. And you come, meet me someplace, and all of sudden, see, we have stand your ground here, and all of a sudden I’m going to feel real…threatened by you! And I will shoot you! If I feel threatened. The law says I can. Ha ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha ha!”

And, in what was obviously a bid to get a spot on Bill Maher’s show, angry, bitter, progressive leftist feminist and alleged “comedian” Laura Levites called for all conservative Christian males to be castrated.  And her fellow bitter, feminist “comedian” and Daily Show Producer Liz Winstead demonstrated complete ignorance of the human reproductive system.

So, the Government needs to force employers to pay for women’s contraceptives and abortificants because every time a woman has unprotected sex, she gets pregnant. Got it?

Also, MSDNC Host Chris Matthews said that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld “looks like a car bomber.

Just another typical week in the Reality-Based Community of Enlightened Tolerance.

 

True conspiracies?

It’s healthy to be skeptical of conspiracy theories; especially ones whose truth would require bad science, illogical motives, the implausible silence of thousands of people, etc. For example, the Rosie O’Donnell form of 9-11 Trooferism, in which absurd claims are made that fire somehow can’t melt nor weaken structural steel, that employees spanning vast security agencies of multiple nations conspired in vast deceptions, etc.

But occasionally, a conspiracy might be real, or partly so. I recently web-surfed to this interesting video from the folks at list25.com. They claim to list 25 true conspiracies.

Note: I DO NOT AGREE with, or vouch for, their entire list. For example, their item 18 (the Nayirah al-Sabah war propaganda case) specifically asserts a CIA connection that Wikipedia does not mention at all. Or their item 15 (about polio vaccine containing a cancer-inducing agent) appears to be weakly sourced.

Still, here are three of their items which were new to me – and which did seem to be supported, when I did quick Google searches for them. If true, they would be historically interesting. If untrue, please feel free to say so in the comments (hopefully with links).

25. Did the NSA in the early 1960s propose to foment war with Cuba, by means of false terrorist incidents that would kill Americans? Search for Operation Northwoods. Again, if this story is false, please let us know in the comments. ABC News reported it as true. If it was a real proposal, then President Kennedy deserves kudos for rejecting it.

24. Did technology exist, as early as the 1970s, to assassinate people ‘trace-free’? A senate.gov page says that:

At the first televised hearing [of the 1975 Church Committee]…Chairman Church dramatically displayed a CIA poison dart gun to highlight the committee’s discovery that the CIA directly violated a presidential order by maintaining stocks of shellfish toxin sufficient to kill thousands.

Some say the point was to deliver a tiny dart, and a toxin, that would decay on impact and become undetectable, after having induced a massive heart attack. I (Jeff) would add that, if the CIA had it in the 1970s, then surely others must have it in the 2000s; which must be why some people wonder about the sudden heart attack of Andrew Breitbart. (more…)

Environmentalist Nutjobs to Native Americans: “Drop Dead, Literally, Drop Dead”

An Aleut village in Alaska offered to swap 50,000 acres of land for use as a wildlife refuge in return for being allowed to build an 11-mile gravel road to an airport so that villagers in need of lifesaving medical care could be transported to Anchorage. They have been fighting the Federal Government for thirty years to build the road and, in that time, nineteen people have died for lack of medical care they could otherwise have received.

But the Obama Department of the Interior shot them down, because Gaia.

Safe to bet Interior Secretary Sally Jewell never has to worry about being hundreds of miles from the nearest life-saving medical care.

The Aleuts should just go ahead and build the road and dare the Feds to stop them. Similar to what Democrat Chicago Mayor Richard Daley did with Meigs Airfield back in 2003. He got away with it, of course, because he’s a Democrat.

SB1062 Post-Mortem

Posted by V the K at 7:54 am - February 27, 2014.
Filed under: Post 9-11 America

So, what have we learned from this? Pretty much nothing we didn’t know already.

1. Gay people have come off looking like self-centered, lying jerks. Brutally honest here: If your attitude is “My special day will be rueeeeened unless I can force someone who doesn’t want to be there to participate,” that’s messed up and you’re a self-centered jerk. Healthy, well-adjusted people do not think that way; messed up jerks think that way.

Also, when gay activists claimed they wouldn’t force Christians to participate in gay marriages, they were obviously lying. Now, of course, they are back-pedaling, “We only meant churches and clergy wouldn’t be forced to participate.” Saying you have freedom of religion only within your church is like saying you only have freedom of speech in your living room. This once again demonstrates that the people who whine the loudest about “I don’t want other people forcing their values on me,” are the people most eager to force their values on everybody else.

Also, the gay activist left won again by being obnoxious. This does not mean they will become less obnoxious in the future.

2. The Media are a bunch of self-centered lying jerks. SB 1026 was a minor clarification to an existing law, and most certainly not a “turn away the gays” bill, but the lying liars in the MFM were only too happy to characterize it that way. They are as anti-Christian as the gay left, and made the most of another opportunity to sow rancor and social division at the expense of truth.

3. Politicians are cowardly and craven. Ace described Governor Jan Brewer as a “doltish weathervane.” I choose not to dispute that characterization.

Another Victory in the Democrat War on Small Business

Posted by V the K at 11:59 pm - February 19, 2014.
Filed under: Economy,Post 9-11 America

Susan Clause and her husband ran a small business in Springfield Illinois selling classroom supplies to teachers and non profit organizations. The business survived her bout with luekemia, it did not survive harassment from the Democrat/Union run State of Illinois.

For 10 days last month, a state auditor camped out at their store – sitting at one of those tiny little children’s tables – reviewing three months of receipts.

And that’s where the problem began.

You see, Ergadoo is the sort of business that has many nonprofits as customers – schools, churches, nurseries.

Those types of organizations don’t have to pay sales taxes.

So, teachers, church secretaries and principals often come in bearing letters from the Illinois Department of Revenue declaring their organizations’ sales tax exemptions.

Clause and her husband dutifully record the transaction – along with their tax exemption number.

Sounds good, right?

Well, no. The Revenue Department says that’s not good enough.

Clause said the Revenue Department told her it’s her store’s responsibility to determine where the customer’s money comes from.

“How am I supposed to prove if someone comes in with a $20 bill and a tax-exempt letter whether that money is from a school’s petty cash fund or someplace else? I can’t. No one can,” Clause said.

What is it about Illinois that makes me suspect someone in the Department of Revenue or the State Legislature has a “friend” in the teacher supply business that needed a little less competition?

I am depressed now, and need to watch adorable kittens do cute things.
