Hillary Clinton’s big Iowa motorcade must be part of her ‘mass movement’ on climate change

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 23:35

**Written by Doug Powers

Hillary Clinton this year called for a “mass movement” to act on climate change.

Hillary more or less launched another bid for the Dem nomination in 2016 at the Harkin Steak Fry in Iowa. The meat is actually grilled, not fried, and per one of Hillary’s contract riders the steaks this year were cooked over select torched Benghazi documents and four more copies of Leaves of Grass found in Bill’s duffel bag.

The Clintons got Hillary’s climate change “mass movement” going… with 12 environment-saving vehicles in their convoy:

There are at least a dozen cars in the Clinton motorcade, arriving now at the Steak Fry

A dozen cars — or as Al Gore would say, “where are the rest?”

Need definitive proof Hillary’s running? Try not to laugh:

Someone asks Bill Clinton how he is doing. His response: "As long as I am still married to her, I am doing good," he says of HRC.

I hope Bill enjoys wearing that remote-controlled electro-shock genital cuff for the next couple of years.

Obama earns Nobel Peace Prize in role play as ISIS adviser

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 23:35

**Written by Doug Powers

From the New York Times via Twitchy, take the rest of the day to soak this one in:

Mr. Obama had what guests on Wednesday afternoon described as a bereft look as he discussed the murders of Mr. Foley and Mr. Sotloff, particularly because two other Americans are still being held. Days later, ISIS would report beheading a British hostage with another video posted online Saturday.

But the president said he had already been headed toward a military response before the men’s deaths. He added that ISIS had made a major strategic error by killing them because the anger it generated resulted in the American public’s quickly backing military action.

If he had been “an adviser to ISIS,” Mr. Obama added, he would not have killed the hostages but released them and pinned notes on their chests saying, “Stay out of here; this is none of your business.” Such a move, he speculated, might have undercut support for military intervention.

He didn’t win that Nobel Peace Prize for nothing! Also Obama probably would have advised ISIS to pin OFA donation envelopes and voter registration forms to the shirts of released hostages.

Beyond parody.

Congressional Democrats demand greater transparency … from the NFL

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 23:35

**Written by Doug Powers

Team Opaque has issued another transparency demand:

A dozen House Democrats sent a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday seeking more “transparency” surrounding its actions that followed the recent release of a video that depicted star running back Ray Rice hitting his wife.

While they’re at it maybe they can see if Goodell knows anything about the whereabouts of Lois Lerner’s email.

Meanwhile, with ISIS murdering people by the thousands and beheading Americans while DC pols continue to run the country into the ground, Sen. Blumenthal is demanding accountability:

If recent reports are true—that @nfl had the Ray Rice battering video months ago—@nflcommish must go, for the good of @nfl & its fans. -RB

Misdial ‘M’ for Maddening: Is the DOJ conspiring with Dems to bury the IRS scandal?

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 23:35

**Written by Doug Powers

null

We already know that Lois Lerner and Rep. Elijah Cummings seemed to have a very friendly working relationship when it came to scrutiny of conservative groups. According to a phone call Darrell Issa says was accidentally placed to his office, we might be able to add the Department of Justice to the mix:

The administration official calling House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s (R-Calif.) office last week had an odd request.

Could the Justice Department get some help leaking information about the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups? asked Brian Fallon, a top spokesman for Attorney General Eric Holder.

Apparently thinking he had reached the office of Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), Fallon said the department wanted congressional staffers to get documents to selected reporters so that officials could comment on them “before the majority” did.

After Issa spokesman Frederick Hill replied that Oversight Committee staffers would have to examine those documents first, the line went silent, and Fallon placed the call on hold for three minutes.

When he returned to the line, Fallon was “audibly shaken,” according to an account of the conversation that Issa recounts in a letter sent to Holder.

Cummings is one of the biggest defenders of the IRS, so it’s nice to know the DOJ seems to be working with the Maryland congressman to help keep the little helpless agency from getting any “smidgen of corruption” on it:

Will the Justice Department’s thorough investigation of the IRS mess be able to determine if the Justice Department is improperly involved with Democrats’ effort to sweep the scandal under the rug? Confidence remains low.

Nancy Pelosi will say this confirms her economic theory about unemployment checks in 3… 2… 1…

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 23:35

**Written by Doug Powers

In the past, Nancy Pelosi has said that the fastest way to create jobs is through unemployment checks:

Has Pelosi pointed to this info from the Bureau of Labor Statistics as “proof” of her claim yet?

On the average day, an unemployed American is more likely to be shopping — for things other than groceries and gas — than to be looking for a new job, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Only 18.9 percent of Americans who were unemployed (in surveys conducted from 2009 through 2013) spent time in job search and interviewing activities on an average day, according to BLS. Yet 40.8 percent of the unemployed did some kind of shopping on the average day–either in a store, by telephone, or on the Internet. 22.5 percent of the unemployed, according to BLS, were shopping for items other than groceries, food and gas.

Using the Pelosi “unemployment checks are the best job creator” model, there can only be full employment in the U.S. when every single American is unemployed, living on UI and shopping. The economic science is settled.

Sunday at the Improv: Obama uncomfortable with the ‘theater’ aspect of politics

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 23:35

**Written by Doug Powers

Chuck Todd’s first interview as the new host of Meet the Press was with President Obama. Todd asked Obama a simple yes or no question, which to paraphrase was “Do you regret golfing minutes after making a statement about the beheading of James Foley?”

Obama basically gave the “Scooby Doo” answer of “Nobody would have known about it either if it weren’t for that darn nosy press!” Except he used many more words than that in his rambling answer. Here’s just part of Obama’s response:

Because the possibility of a jarring contrast given the world’s news, is always — there’s always going to be some tough news somewhere is going to be there. But there’s no doubt that after having talked to the families, where it was hard for me to hold back tears listening to the pain that they were going through, after the statement that I made, that you know, I should’ve anticipated the optics.

You know, that’s part of the job. And you know, I think everybody who knows me, including, I suspect, the press, understands that that you know, you take this stuff in. And– it– it’s serious business. And you care about it deeply.

But part of this job is also the theater of it. A part of it is, you know, how are you, how, how are you, well, it’s not something that always comes naturally to me.

Full transcript Obama’s 285-word answer to a yes or no question is at Real Clear Politics.

Political “theater” has never come natural to him? That’s always been obvious:

Email from five more IRS employees lost in latest wave of ‘historic levels of transparency’

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 23:35

**Written by Doug Powers

This has gotten so ridiculous that I’m starting to suspect it’s a giant red herring of some sort — the problem is that we’ll never know that for sure because even the giant red herring’s hard drive has been “accidentally” erased.

From the Associated Press:

The IRS says it has lost emails from five more workers who are part of congressional investigations into the treatment of conservative groups that applied for tax exempt status.

The tax agency said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings.

On Friday, the IRS said it has also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe, including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status.

The agency blamed computer crashes for the lost emails.

Call the CDC because the biggest infectious disease going around is “Lois Lerner lost email syndrome.” Ebola’s got nothing on the cyber pandemic at the IRS.

As always, blame Fox News for promoting the notion that there might be a smidgen of corruption in any of this:

The deadly jihad attack on Camp Bastion: Two years later

Sun, 09/14/2014 - 09:13

Today is the 2nd anniversary of the deadly attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

Regular readers of this website have been fully informed about the horrible jihad siege on the base, which occurred three days after the Benghazi attack. But for most Americans, Camp Bastion holds no significance.

Two years later, there has been little remembrance and scant justice for the families of the 2 fallen American hero Marines who died in the attack and the 17 servicemen who were wounded.

Please do not let their sacrifice go in vain.

Refresher:

Three days after the bloody 9/11 siege on our consulate in Benghazi, the Taliban waged an intricately coordinated, brutal attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. The murderous jihadists released video exactly one month ago this week showing off their training exercises in preparation for the assault. Where are the questions?

Where’s the accountability? Where’s the Obama administration? Where’s the press? Where’s the outrage?

Two heroic U.S. Marines were killed in the battle. Their names — Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell – have not been uttered publicly by the commander in chief. Their arrival back in the U.S., in flag-draped coffins, was not broadcast on network TV. But their brothers-in-arms did not and will not forget. And neither must we.

On September 20, John Gresham of the Defense Media Network wrote a scathing detailed breakdown of this little-noticed terrorist attack on our troops. He called it “arguably the worst day in USMC aviation history since the Tet Offensive of 1968.” Eight irreplaceable aircraft were destroyed or put out of action by Taliban warriors dressed in U.S. combat fatigues — amounting to “approximately 7 percent of the total flying USMC Harrier fleet,” Gresham reported.

His summary is bone chilling: “A Harrier squadron commander is dead, along with another Marine. Another nine personnel have been wounded, and the nearby Marines at Camp Freedom are now without effective fixed-wing air support. The USMC’s response to this disaster will be a telling report card on its leadership and organizational agility.”

On September 21, the left-leaning magazine The Atlantic published an article on the Camp Bastion attack titled “The U.S. Suffered Its Worst Airpower Loss Since Vietnam Last Week and No One Really Noticed.” A few right-leaning blogs raised troubling questions about preparedness and security.

“How did this band of radicals even manage to approach a highly advanced multi-national military base without being detected, much less force their way inside en masse?” asked Kim Zigfeld of the American Thinker. “How were they able to attack so quickly and efficiently that, even though nearly every one of them was killed in the effort, they were able to harm the mighty leathernecks more than they had been in half a century?”

National Review’s Jonathan Foreman wondered whether Pakistan was behind the attack. “It seems likely that the special forces of a professional army planned the raid, and trained, advised and led the raiders — that is if they did not actually take part in it. Those special forces would, of course, be those of Pakistan,” Foreman posited. “This may sound shocking, but it would hardly be the first time that Pakistani special forces have operated in Afghanistan on behalf of Islamabad’s allies and proxies.”

President Obama has referred callously to the murders of our civilian diplomatic staff in Benghazi as “bumps in the road.” Even more maddening, though, is the radio silence from the White House about what happened that day at Camp Bastion — and what, if anything, Obama’s Pentagon did between the last major attack on Bastion in March and the bloody siege in September.

Somehow, a band of 15 insurgents managed to penetrate the wire with assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons on 9/14. Their destruction was of historic proportions. The attack came six months after U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was the target of a failed suicide attack attempt at Bastion. The (UK) Sun reported at the time that an Afghani was believed to have made the deliberate attempt on Panetta after “he broke through defenses and drove a vehicle towards his aircraft. He then went past the perimeter surrounded by armed security and large concrete block guards. Disaster was only averted when the truck caught fire and crashed into a ditch on the runway close to where Mr. Panetta’s jet had landed or was set to land.”

One Taliban attacker survived. His fate? The death penalty…maybe. Via WaPo’s Dan Lamothe:

Only one of the armed attackers involved in that Sept. 14, 2012, attack on Camp Bastion survived, military officials said. Mohammed Nazeer, now 24, was convicted and sentenced to death by an Afghan court, said Maj. John Caldwell, a Marine Corps spokesman at the Pentagon. But it still isn’t certain the punishment will stand. An Afghan appellate court affirmed the death penalty July 6, but the case is now before the Afghan Supreme Court for additional review, Caldwell said.

The uncertainty has frustrated the families of the two Marines killed, Lt. Col. Christopher Raible, 40, and Sgt. Bradley Atwell, 27, said Deborah Hatheway, Atwell’s aunt. U.S. military officials in Afghanistan contacted them last year asking for victim impact statements and family photographs to help make the case to the Afghan court that the insurgent should be punished severely for his actions, she said. The families were not informed there was an appellate process until this week, and are concerned it will function more leniently than the U.S. version.

“We’re grieving,” Hatheway said. “We lost a loved one, and we want answers and respect from the military.”

The surviving insurgent was wounded in a firefight with coalition forces on the base and captured. The results of a U.S. Central Command investigation released last October said Nazeer told investigators he was recruited to carry out an unknown “big mission” about four months before the attack by a Taliban commander.

Nazeer was in charge of a group of militants during the attack who planned to kill as many coalition members as possible while they were sleeping, he said during interrogation. He received training in Pakistan on weapons handling, communications and maneuvering as part of a military unit.

The families of the fallen remain frustrated by the lack of justice and lack of communication:

Kim Raible, the fallen squadron commander’s mother, said she was disgusted to hear that Nazeer was turned over to Afghan authorities. She has asked many questions about the attack, but did not know about the appeals process until this week, she said.

“There’s never any answers,” she said. “To me, it’s just a total lack of regard for us and the Atwells and the loss that we have here.”

Dem desperation update: Debbie Wasserman Schultz undaunted in search for new lows

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 18:35

**Written by Doug Powers

Debbie Wasserman Schultz uses over-the-top rhetoric even more than her perm rods, but you can smell the desperation on this classless attack on Scott Walker:

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz ripped into Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s record Wednesday during a round-table discussion on women’s issues at the Milwaukee Athletic Club.

The Florida congresswoman said: “Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality.”

Wasserman Schultz added: “What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch.”

Coming soon from DWS: Has Scott Walker stopped beating his wife, yes or now?

And it’s only early September. What do you think she’ll be saying at the end of October?

The DNC’s clarification was pretty much, “no, seriously, domestic violence is nothing to joke about.”

Post-9/11: Protect the freedom to warn

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 07:49

Post-9/11: Protect the freedom to warn
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2014

“If you see something, say something.” That’s what our homeland security apparatchiks incessantly preach. But 13 years after the 9/11 attacks, the freedom to warn is in danger and vigilant whistleblowers are under fire.

Listen to Robert MacLean. He’s a former Air Force nuclear weapons specialist and Border Patrol agent recruited by the government to serve as one of the first federal air marshals after 9/11.

In 2003, MacLean underwent emergency training to prepare for a new round of al-Qaida hijacking threats. Jihadists exploiting visa and screening loopholes had planned to target East Coast airliners, according to intelligence analysts. For unknown reasons, however, the Transportation Security Administration abruptly called off air marshals from duty on nonstop, long-distance flights — just two days before the anticipated hijacking.

How did they notify the air marshals? Cue the Keystone Cops. “TSA chose to send the unlabeled text message to our unsecured Nokia 3310 cellular phones instead of our $22 million encrypted smart phone system. There were no markings or secrecy restrictions on the message,” MacLean recounted to Congress this week. “We all thought it was a joke given the special training we had just received and the post-9/11 law that nonstop long-distance flights were a priority.”

A supervisor told MacLean the agency was broke and there was nothing he could do. Appalled at both the dangerous pullback and the reckless way in which the feds notified the air marshals, MacLean then contacted his department’s inspector general hotline and was warned he would be “cutting (his) career short if (he) pursued the issue further.” Instead, he went to the press and made his homeland security concerns public. In 2006, MacLean was fired.

More than a decade later, the dedicated security expert has battled the feds who retaliated against him. He was forced into bankruptcy and shut out of law enforcement jobs. His legal case heads to the Supreme Court this fall. God bless him. Despite the consequences, MacLean would do it all again in a heartbeat.

“I blew the whistle because I had to,” he testified this week. “I could not live with the tragedy risked if I had been the cynical silent observer.”

MacLean is not alone. Do you remember 10 years ago when then-Federal Air Marshal Service Director Thomas Quinn refused to allow his employees to dress undercover? Quinn, a former Secret Service agent, insisted that air marshals abide by military-style grooming standards and a rigid business dress policy regardless of weather, time of year or seating arrangement. Yes, really. Marshals were ordered to dress like characters straight out of “Men in Black” — leaving them vulnerable to terrorist identification.

Critics of the code dubbed Quinn the Captain Queeg of homeland security. He even assigned fashion police to enforce the rules his own spokesman denied existed. Homeland security bureaucrats in Washington back then downplayed the marshals’ complaints about the dress policy and other directives and leaks that undermined the marshals’ anonymity.

Officials at headquarters smeared the messengers inside and outside the agency and denied any wrongdoing. One top special agent in charge of the marshals’ Atlanta office, Don Strange, was fired after criticizing the dress code and boarding procedures that made the marshals’ identities obvious. Another agent, Frank Terreri, faced retaliation for whistleblowing and was forced to sue to protect his job.

Today, the Federal Air Marshal program remains riddled with mismanagement, corruption and neglect. In April, FAM Director Robert Bray resigned amid an embarrassing gun scheme probe. And earlier this year, six of 24 air marshal offices closed, and hiring was frozen in Las Vegas, Seattle and Denver. Yet, according to one of my sources, “the last class of air marshals graduated from the academy in 2012. The service has not hired any mission-flying FAMs since. In that same time frame, they have promoted or hired over 300 people, and continue to do so, for supervisory and administrative duties. Almost every supervisory position includes a paid move and a yearly salary of $100,000.”

Every 9/11, pundits talk about how “everything changed” after the attacks. But the homeland security bureaucracy is as petty, vindictive, wasteful and stupid as ever.

Never forget: Unlike Obama, the jihadists never rest

The jihadists’ eternal plan
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2014

Here’s the first and last rule of Islamic jihad: If at first you don’t succeed, plot, plot again.
9/11 wasn’t the first. 9/11 won’t be the last. It’s not “fear-mongering” to face reality. These head-chopping, throat-slitting, bloodthirsty hijackers — of planes, freedom and civilization — have conspired for decades to inflict modern mass murder on the West. Their homicidal mission is spectacular destruction in the name of the Koran.

Never forget: Eternal Muslim hatred of infidels didn’t start with George W. Bush. Or George Herbert Walker Bush. Or Ronald Reagan. Or the creation of Gitmo. Or the birth of Israel. Or the Twin Towers. Or the Khobar Towers. Or Lockerbie. Or the U.S.S. Cole. Or Fort Hood. Or the Beirut Marine barracks bombings. Or the bombings of the U.S. embassy in Africa, the bombing of U.S. military headquarters in Riyadh and the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi.

Allah’s animals can’t stop. They won’t stop. Sura 9:5, the verse of the sword, commands them to “slay the idolators wherever you find them, and take them, and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush.” No “pagan” throat is safe: American soldiers, worldly journalists, innocent schoolgirls, Jewish teenage boys and Christian missionaries alike are all targets of Sura 47′s call to “smite the necks” of the unbelievers.

Now our impuissant president sees fit, after two laggard terms in office, to unveil a “plan” for “degrading and ultimately destroying” the Muslim terrorists of ISIS.

Pffft.

To call the Obama administration’s trifling gestures a “bump in the road” to Islamic domination would be an overstatement of astronomic proportions. The bloodless words of the White House are rhetorical pebbles.

While Barack Obama singles out ISIS jihad gangsters for a $5 billion kabuki counterterrorism campaign, he continues to subsidize Hamas terrorists.

He has freed countless al-Qaida recidivists from the very Gitmo detention facility he vowed to shut down to appease international jihad enablers of the Kumbaya/Coexist coalition.

Obama’s jihad enablers have rolled out the red carpet at the White House for Islamist funders and frontmen, including:

-Esam Omeish, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood-sponsored Muslim American Society and patron of jihad cleric Anwar Awlaki, whom he helped install at Virginia’s notorious Dar al-Hijrah mosque. (That’s the same mosque where two 9/11 hijackers, terrorist financier Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi and Fort Hood Muslim mass murderer Nidal Hasan all worshiped.)

– Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah, a top lieutenant of Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf Qaradawi, who urges followers to kill every last Jew, sanctioned suicide bombings and the killing of our soldiers, and declared that the “U.S. is an enemy of Islam that has already declared war on Islam under the disguise of war on terrorism and provides Israel with unlimited support.”

–Hisham al-Talib, another Qaradawi cheerleader welcomed at the White House by Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Al-Talib is an Iraqi-born Muslim identified by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood operative and a major contributor to the left-wing Center for Constitutional Rights, the group of jihadi-sympathizing lawyers who helped spring suspected Benghazi terror plotter Abu Sufian bin Qumu from Gitmo.

While Obama has been hitting the golf courses and Hollywood fundraisers over the past two terms, the relentless jihadists have been training, recruiting, practicing, testing and refining.

They’ve infiltrated our prisons, our military and our universities.

They’ve penetrated our borders, abused our toothless visa programs and exploited our indiscriminate refugee system to import and export the next generation of soldiers of Allah around the world.

They’re experimenting with shoe bombs, underwear bombs, ink bombs, dry ice bombs and cargo bombs.

Their dry runs on airliners continue unabated as our Federal Air Marshal Service shrinks from insufficient funds and abandonment.

They command their own rogue freighter and aviation fleets.

While Obama finally gets around to reading his teleprompter vow to destroy ISIS this week, Osama bin Laden’s heirs are diligently fulfilling their 20-year plan. According to al-Qaida documents and intelligence released nearly a decade ago, the Islamic avengers are already in their fifth phase of “declaration of the caliphate or the Islamic state.”

Next comes “total war” and “final victory” by 2020, helped along by demographic domination: “The Islamic state’s capabilities will be great beyond measure when Muslims would number more than 1.5 billion.”

Jihadist hijackers and head-choppers don’t quit. Appeasement and empty threats are no deterrence. They will not stop trying to outdo 9/11 — unless, through our deadly adherence to political correctness, apathy, amnesia, open borders and sloth, we do ourselves in first.

On Tuesday, ISIS beheaded another American journalist, and the JV team will now be the focus of the United Nations:

The United Nations Human Rights Council decided Monday to send a fact-finding team to Iraq to investigate possible war crimes by Islamic extremists after hearing senior human rights officials detail mass killings and other atrocities committed “on an unimaginable scale.”

In the face of new depravities in Iraq, the Geneva-based council adopted, without a vote, a resolution sponsored by more than 100 states calling for the urgent dispatch of a fact-finding mission and required it to report back in March.

An “urgent” report launched in September is due in March? Don’t worry though, because if global warming is found to be the cause, the U.N. will issue the report by early next week.

Meanwhile, the State Department’s Jen Psaki, asked if the Sotloff beheading was an act of war, said she wasn’t prepared to “put any labels” on it. Smart power.

Pure irony: Jennifer Granholm to teach course in job creation

This story is a few days old but worth a hearty Labor Day “point and laugh” session:

Excuse me for a second…

The course will be called “There’s One Born Every Minute 101.”

Bonus points: It’s a class on creating “clean energy” jobs:

Granholm, who has taught various classes at Berkeley since 2011, will lead a special topic seminar this semester titled “creating jobs through better government policies for innovation and education.”

The class will focus on strategies for creating clean energy jobs, which Granholm claimed some success with in Michigan. Fox News and various conservative websites have been quick to point out the state’s unemployment rate was in the double digits when she left office.

Will this background be on Granholm’s course syllabus?

Michigan lost more than half a million jobs (576,900) during Gov. Jennifer Granholm’s 8-year tenure. The month before Granholm took office, Michigan had 4,468,700 jobs in December of 2002. When she left office in December of 2010, Michigan 3,891,800 jobs. Michigan led the nation in unemployment for 45 consecutive months from May 2006 to January 2010.

Factor in Granholm’s “clean energy success stories” and the only jobs that will be created by her “job creation” students is if they can figure out how to harness the power of the incredible irony of all this.
