OBAMA'S BENGHAZI LIES ARE FINALLY BEING REVEALED Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Tuesday, 29 October 2013

There was a large crack Sunday night (10/27) in the wall of silence the "mainstream" media have erected around the events in Benghazi on the night of 9/11/2012.

CBS broadcast on its "60 Minutes" program a segment which featured an interview with one of the eyewitnesses to the attack on our consulate the Obama administration has been trying to hide from Congressional investigators.

He is "Morgan Jones."  That's a pseudonym for a former British soldier turned security consultant, who was hired to train the Libyans the State Department chose to guard the consulate, in lieu of U.S. Marines, who customarily guard our diplomatic installations.

Additional testimony by other witnesses was equally devastating.

An Army Special Forces officer based at our embassy in Tripoli, LtCol. Andy Wood, told CBS correspondent Lara Logan that for months before the attack, he reported to the State Department and up his chain of command in the Defense department that al Qaida was planning to attack the consulate.

THE PRESIDENT IS EITHER IDIOTICALLY CLUELESS OR A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR Print E-mail

Barack Hussein Obama bears an uncanny resemblance to Sgt. Hans Schultz, the dim-witted guard at the Stalag 13 POW camp.  Not a physical resemblance, of course.  Sgt. Schultz, played by John Banner in the 1960s sitcom "Hogan's Heroes," was a portly white guy.

But the lines Sgt. Schultz uttered most frequently during the sitcom's seven year run were: "I know nothing.  I hear nothing.  I see nothing."  The president and senior aides have been saying something similar quite a lot recently.

President Obama didn't learn there were problems with Healthcare.gov until a couple of days after the rollout began, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who was skeptical.

He didn't know security at the consulate in Benghazi was so lax, Mr. Obama said.  He didn't learn about IRS harassment of conservative groups until he read about it in the newspapers.  It seems odd this never came up during the hundreds of visits IRS officials made to the White House.

The president didn't learn the Justice Department was running guns to Mexican drug cartels "until he heard about it through the media," Mr. Carney said.  And of course the NSA never told him they were bugging the cellphone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

HALF-FULL REPORT 10/25/13 Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 25 October 2013

Democrats are learning the hard way what the expression "Pyrrhic victory" means. Dr. John, a health care professional who blogs at Flopping Aces, explains why:

"Obama won the shutdown battle and his prize was the country discovering just how incompetent he is. The great irony of this is that had Obama given the GOP the delay they sought they could have hidden their galactic incompetence."
* * * *
In the last week, millions of "low information" voters received letters from their insurance companies informing them that because of Obamacare, their health insurance policy has been cancelled, or their premium has doubled.  Many more will receive such letters soon.

For a creature of media mythology like Barack Obama, nothing could be more dangerous than to permit reality to slap millions of "lofos" in the face.  It'll be hard for the news media to piece its shattered shield back together.  More likely, damage will cascade:
* * * *
His mendacious - and hilarious -- refusal to acknowledge Obamacare's problems during his press conference/infomercial Monday hasn't helped Zero's credibility.  It wasn't just conservatives who noticed the resemblance to the Sham Wow! guy:
* * * *
Now that Democrats know what's in Obamacare, it scares the hell out of them, says the Chicago Tribune.

Panic over Obamacare "is splitting the caucus wide open," writes liberal Jonathan Chait in the New Yorker.

Fueling panic among Democrats are stories I bet you never thought you'd see in the "mainstream" media.
* * * *
Four pending lawsuits could kill Obamacare subsidies in most of the country.
* * * *
Journalists have forgotten about Benghazi, but Americans haven't.  By a margin of 60-28, respondents to a Fox News poll say the Obama administration is trying to cover up what happened there on 9/11/2012.  That's a big increase from a year ago.

"60 Minutes" will broadcast an interview Sunday (10/27) with one of the witnesses to the attack the administration has been trying to hide.

SACRILEGE IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

Betio Island, Tarawa Atoll, Kiribati.  I might as well warn you right up front.  You are really, really not going to like this.  You are going to get seriously steamed. 

Tarawa is sacred history in the annals of the United States Marines.  The Battle of Tarawa was one of the most brutal and lethal in the Corps' history.

After losing Guadalcanal to the Marines in 1942, the Japanese were determined not to lose Tarawa, with its vitally strategic position in the Central Pacific.  They spent a year building up an incredibly well-fortified array of defenses on Betio to control the entrance to the lagoon and thus the entire atoll.

The Japanese commander, Rear Admiral Keiji Shibazaki, was so confidant of his preparations and men his message to Tokyo was, "It would take one million men one hundred years" to conquer Tarawa.

It took the US Marines 76 hours.  But at a horrible cost.  On Tarawa, the Marines demonstrated epic bravery and heroism - guts and glory beyond normal imagination. 1,113 Marines died, 2,290 wounded.  It is no mystery whatever that Tarawa is a sacred memory for all Marines - and to trash and besmirch it would be sacrilegious. 

Yet that is exactly and precisely what has happened, and in the most disgusting manner thinkable.

AFTER THE OBAMA HICCUP, THE 21ST CENTURY IS AMERICA'S Print E-mail
Written by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard   
Friday, 25 October 2013

Anyone here old enough to remember the 1929 crash on Wall Street and the 1933 US exit from the Gold Standard under Franklin Roosevelt?  If so, you'll recall the pervading sense that America had already peaked, its capitalist model overtaken by history.  The Soviets were ascendant and soon would overtake us.

After defeat in Vietnam and the Carter Malaise, it was the Japanese who would triumph.  This time it is supposed to be China and the emerging powers - armed with $9 trillion of combined reserves - who will humble America, pulling the plug on the dollar and the US Treasury market, and ending the era of "exorbitant privilege."

As for China and the chorus of voices from BRICS-land venting indignation at the US over the debt, it is largely humbug. 

Taken in the stride of 20th century history, the latest bleatings about America's demise seem more than a little overdone.  Obama will be judged a hiccup of American history, for here is the great salient economic fact of our times.

DON'T SIGN, DON'T PAY THE FINE Print E-mail
Written by Arnold Ahlert   
Wednesday, 23 October 2013

Recently, there have been many attempts to get a handle on why there is so much public discontent. I think all the reasoning can be boiled down to one idea: Americans feel powerless. Millions of us look at Washington, D.C. and see one thing and one thing only, namely a ruling class that is completely out of touch with ordinary Americans and their concerns.

Fortunately that same ruling class, in their unbridled hubris, has made a critical error. They've presented the public with an extraordinary opportunity to give the federal government one of the grander smack downs that any public could give any out-of-control government.

And all the American public has to do to give Washington that smack down is.....nothing.

Right now, the Obama administration is in the process of rolling out the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act that requires millions of Americans to buy health insurance, or pay a fine.

I think it's time the American public gave Congress and the Obama administration a taste of their own medicine, so to speak. Thus I am presenting a simple slogan, that embodies the very same kind of large-scale civil disobedience that progressives cherished during the Vietnam War. To wit:

Don't sign, don't pay the fine.

THE OBLIGATION TO DISOBEY Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Tuesday, 22 October 2013

In a number of cases, officials of the Obama administration appear to have given unlawful orders during the shutdown, such as to put up barricades to prevent people from going to nonfederal attractions such as Mount Vernon, and keeping open nonessential activities like federally owned golf courses that serve the "well-connected."

The Uniform Code of Military Justice Section 892, Article 92 makes it clear that military personnel have an obligation and a duty to obey only lawful orders and, indeed, have an obligation to disobey unlawful orders, including orders by the president that do not comply with the code.

The moral and legal obligation of the military is to the U.S. Constitution and not to those who would issue unlawful orders, especially if those orders are in direct violation of the Constitution and the code. Civilian employees also have an equal obligation to disobey unlawful orders.

The illegitimate orders that government workers followed during the shutdown might seem like minor infractions, but those who committed them should think about where they would draw the line.

THE BOTTOM LINE ON THE OBAMACARE ROLLOUT Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 24 October 2013

“There’s no way Democrats can spin this turd,” said comedian Jon Stewart.

That it was Mr. Stewart who said this is significant, because he has a big following among healthy young people, who must sign up for Obamacare in the millions to keep what so far has been mostly farce from becoming a fiasco.

And he was spot on. Most of the “mainstream” media have treated Democrat spin as news, and -- if it reflected poorly on the Obama administration -- played down or ignored genuine news.

The media shield has protected the president from failures in foreign policy, in which most Americans have little knowledge and less interest, and has limited blowback from scandals which most Americans don’t think concern them.

But no amount of spin can cloak reality for Americans whose health insurance policy has been cancelled, or whose premiums have doubled. It’s harder to convince those who’ve spent hours trying to access Obamacare Web sites the president is on top of things, his administration competent.

HANGING TOGETHER OR SEPARATELY Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Tuesday, 22 October 2013

The rift in the GOP today isn't about policy or principle. Ostensibly, it's about tactics.  Mostly it's about culture.

Tea Party insurgents in Flyover Country regard more "moderate" Republicans -- the GOP leadership in Congress especially -- as Establishment "squishes" too comfortable with the status quo, too timid to take on the powers that be.

To Establishment "squishes," Tea Party insurgents are chest-thumping Yahoos who haven't a clue.

Losing -- which, with the partial exception of the 2010 midterms, Republicans have been doing since 2006 -- intensifies factional disputes.

Since Ronald Reagan, every GOP nominee for president has come from (what these days passes for) the party's moderate wing.  They've done poorly.

HOW THE SUCCESS OF OBAMACARE IS INSPIRING THE WORLD Print E-mail
Written by To The Point News   
Friday, 25 October 2013

The ace journalists at The Peoples Cube have revealed how the dizzying success of Obamacare has inspired several industries in the private sector to similar heights of achievement.

"The private sector is always languishing behind the government," said Jay Carney in a White House press release earlier today, "especially in terms of technology and efficiency. It is hoped that by our showing the world that success is achievable, others would be inspired to do as well."

Indeed, with the government to lead the way, private sector businesses, and even other governments, are beginning to think they could succeed, too. Consider some of the Obamacare inspired success stories of today:

Hello, TTPers!

Jack Kelly is at his daughter's wedding today, and Jack Wheeler is still investigating places in the South Pacific we never heard of, so Dr. Jack asked me to fill in for the HFR this week.  Most of you know me via my posts as "Mae" on the TTP Forum.  So here we go!

Alexis de Tocqueville's perception that "A man's admiration for absolute government is proportionate to the contempt he feels for those around him," truly hits the mark in today's America. 

Just one little bit of Half-Full good news before the deluge of the bad: on Wednesday (10/16), a professor at Yale University discovered that Tea Partyers are more scientifically literate

Now for the rest.  It's not pretty.  But we'll still manage to have a few laughs along the way.

Funafuti, Tuvalu.  I'm not sure if what I've discovered here in one of the world's smallest and unknown independent countries is a case of serendipity: finding something where you least expect it - or barendipity: not finding something where you most expect it.  Whichever, it's fascinating, revelatory, and absolutely hilarious. 
 
I came here to understand why and how this place exists.  You'll be amazed to find out.  Get ready to have a really fun learning experience. And enjoy the photos...

FINALLY! BUSINESS FIGHTS BACK AGAINST CORRUPT ECO-FASCISM Print E-mail
Written by James Delingpole   
Wednesday, 23 October 2013

Here's some good news from America. A Big Oil company - Chevron - is taking legal action against a group of environmentalists for fraud and extortion: aka greenmail. The sums involved are eyewatering: $19 billion (billion with a B).  Phelim McAleer has the details.

It's fitting that Phelim McAleer should be reporting this story because, of course, he visited similar territory in his documentary FrackNation. Like Crude, Josh Fox's anti-fracking movie Gasland was feted at Sundance and lauded by the usual Hollywood suspects.

The polite explanation for what's going on here is "noble cause corruption." You'll lie, you'll fiddle with the data, you'll bully, you'll smear, you'll abandon the scientific method -- not because you're a bad person (or so you persuade yourself) but because you're a person so good that you're even prepared to sacrifice even your personal integrity for the higher cause of saving the world from The Greatest Threat It Has Ever Known.

Finally -- finally! -- business has begun fighting back.  And Chevron's case is really good.

GLOBAL WARMING IS WONDERFUL Print E-mail
Written by Matt Ridley   
Friday, 18 October 2013

Global warming has done more good than harm so far and is likely to continue doing so for most of this century. This is not some barmy, right-wing fantasy; it is the consensus of expert opinion. Yet almost nobody seems to know this.

Whenever I make the point in public, I am told by those who are paid to insult anybody who departs from climate alarm that I have got it embarrassingly wrong, don't know what I am talking about, and so forth.

At first, I thought this was just their usual bluster. But then I realized that they are genuinely unaware. Good news is no news, which is why the mainstream media largely ignores all studies showing net benefits of global warming. And academics have not exactly been keen to push such analysis forward. So here follows an entire article on the net benefits of global warming.
