Fun Fact…

This Was Not An Act of War….

According to the Obama Administration, this would be a “no boots on the ground” surgical air strike to degrade the U.S. Navy’s ability to conduct war in the Pacific.

Timothy Geithner speaks from Metaluna

Concerned that Elizabeth Warren might be appointed to head the Consumer Protection Agency and put an end to his affair with Wall Street, Timothy Geithner plots with his men on the U.S. Treasury’s Interociter.

Jane Harman, Dunce

Who knows, maybe she really didn’t do anything this time.  But  the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee is a powerful force in Washington and Israel has a history of spying on us.

It’s too soon to tell exactly what her role is in all of this, but it is not out of the realm of possibility that the Israeli Intelligence service has taken advantage of her access to sensitive information and her apparently somewhat dim mind to further their agenda.

Let’s hope not.

The Gavinator who would be Governor

April 21, 2009

Immaturity at it’s finest.

The reporter in this clip is Dan Noyes, one of the reporters involved in the 1970’s Arizona Project that investigated the death of Arizona Republic reporter Don Bolles.

Newsom has parlayed Getty money, family ties and political connections into prominence in San Francisco.  He latched onto the gay marriage bandwagon and is riding it for all it’s worth.

This is also a guy who had an affair with the drug addled wife of his campaign manager, and who reportedly suffers from dyslexia.

I image he will easily win the governorship because California voters are some of the most uninformed, easily manipulated people in the world.

List of 10 Verified Hillary Clinton Lies

April 6, 2008

You have to wonder exactly how many prevarications it will take for people to become aware that Hillary Clinton might have a something of a tiny little character flaw – like being a pathological liar – that will reflect negatively on her fitness to be president and commander-in-chief.

Presented for your enjoyment is a list of 10 of Hillary Clinton’s recent and past lies.

Note that this list doesn’t include any of the misrepresentations relating to any of the many scandals she was involved in when while in the White House.

1. Hillary Clinton lied as a staff member of the House Judiciary Committee

Dan Calabrese reveals in his column that former general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Zeifman, indicated that he fired the 27 year old Hillary Rodham from the House Judiciary Committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation due to her lying and unethical conduct. Zeifman said that during the Watergate investigation Hillary lied in a legal brief, them removed evidence from public access that would document her conduct. (Source)

2. Hillary Clinton lied about flying into Bosina under sniper fire

“I remember landing under sniper fire,” she said in Washington on Monday. “There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

News footage of the event however showed her claims to have been wide of the mark, and reporters who accompanied her stated that there was no sniper fire. Her account was ridiculed by ABC News as “like a scene from Saving Private Ryan”. (Source)

3. Hillary Clinton Misrepresented her Record opposing the Iraq War

In Eugene, Ore., Saturday, April 5, 2008, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., attempted to change the measure by which anyone might assess who criticized the Iraq war first, her or Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., by saying those keeping records should start in January 2005, when Obama joined the Senate. (A measure that conveniently avoids her October 2002 vote to authorize use of force against Iraq at a time that Obama was speaking out against the war.) She claimed that using that measure, she criticized the war in Iraq before Obama did.

But Clinton’s claim was false. (Source)

4. Hillary Clinton Misrepresented her Role in the Irish Peace Accord

The historian Tim Pat Coogan told The Chicago Tribune: “It was a nice thing to see her there, with the women’s groups. It helped, I suppose. But it was ancillary to the main thing. It was part of the stage effects, the optics.” Former SDLP man Brian Feeney said pithily: “The road to peace was carefully documented, and she wasn’t on it.” (Source)

5. Hillary Clinton Misrepresented the extent to which her daughter was in danger on 9/11

Clinton said Chelsea had gone on “what she thought was going to be a great jog. She was going to go down to Battery Park, she was going to go around the towers. She went to get a cup of coffee and, and, that’s when the plane hit.”

Responding to a question about whether her daughter heard the “rumble,” Clinton said, “She did hear it.”

Weeks later, Chelsea Clinton told a magazine that she was in an apartment 12 blocks away when the first plane hit. A UPI article said she was outdoors closer to the site when “she heard the rumble of the second tower collapsing.” (Source)

6. Hillary Clinton Claimed she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary

During a stop in Nepal while on a south Asian goodwill tour in April 1995, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton engaged in a brief (and reportedly coincidental) meeting with Sir Edmund Hillary (who, along with Tenzing Norgay, became the first person to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest, in 1953) and told reporters she had been named after the famed mountain climber. The notion that Ms. Clinton’s given name was inspired by the man who conquered Everest was almost certainly a bit of fiction invented for political expediency (as many critics have noted, Edmund Hillary didn’t become world-famous until six years after Hillary Rodham was born). (Source)

7. Hillary Clinton Lied about supporting NAFTA

On November 1, 1996, United Press International reported that on a trip to Brownsville, Texas, Clinton “touted the president’s support for the North American Free Trade Agreement, saying it would reap widespread benefits in the region.”

The Associated Press followed up the next day noting that Hillary Clinton touted the fact that “the president would continue to support economic growth in South Texas through initiatives such as the North American Free Trade Agreement.”

In her memoir, Clinton wrote, “Senator Dole was genuinely interested in health care reform but wanted to run for president in 1996. He couldn’t hand incumbent Bill Clinton any more legislative victories, particularly after Bill’s successes on the budget, the Brady bill and NAFTA.”

Yes, we are all expected to just forget that, so that Hillary Clinton’s campaign can manufacture supposed “outrage” that anyone would say she supported NAFTA – all at a time her chief strategist, Mark Penn, simultaneously heads a firm that is right now pushing to expand NAFTA into South America.

Penn was recently fired by both Columbia and the Clinton campaign. (Source)

8. Hillary Clinton Lied about her role in the passage of the Family and Medical Leave Act

Her campaign Web site boasts that her record includes “helping to pass the Family and Medical Leave Act.”

But the bill was pushed in Congress for years and passed twice, only to be vetoed by former President George H.W. Bush. Congress passed it a third time as Bill Clinton took office. He signed it into law on Feb. 5, 1993, barely two weeks after he became president.

Hillary Clinton’s own White House schedules, recently released, make no mention of any meetings on the bill. (Source)

9. Hillary Clinton Lied about her trip to Africa

Speaking in Pennsylvania two weeks ago, Clinton introduced former U.S. Ambassador Joe Wilson. “He and I did travel together to Africa and, sort of, paved the way for the president’s trip the following year, which was historic,” Clinton said.

But Wilson didn’t accompany Clinton on her March 1997 trip to Africa. Wilson did accompany both Clintons on the president’s 1998 Africa visit.

“She made a mistake on that,” Wilson said. “She misspoke on that. I worked closely with her and her staff on the president’s trip, which she went on.”

The Clinton administration official who accompanied Clinton on her 1997 trip was Susan Rice, who’s now a senior foreign policy adviser to the Obama campaign. (Source)

10. Hillary Clinton Lied about the “uninsured” woman who died after childbirth

Over the last five weeks, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York has featured in her campaign stump speeches the story of a health care horror: an uninsured pregnant woman who lost her baby and died herself after being denied care by an Ohio hospital because she could not come up with a $100 fee.

The woman, Trina Bachtel, did die last August, two weeks after her baby boy was stillborn at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, Ohio. But hospital administrators said Friday that Ms. Bachtel was under the care of an obstetrics practice affiliated with the hospital, that she was never refused treatment and that she was, in fact, insured…

Linda M. Weiss, a spokeswoman for the not-for-profit hospital, said the Clinton campaign had never contacted the hospital to check the accuracy of the story, which Mrs. Clinton had first heard from a Meigs County, Ohio, sheriff’s deputy in late February 2008.

A Clinton spokesman, Mo Elleithee, said candidates would frequently retell stories relayed to them, vetting them when possible. “In this case, we did try but were not able to fully vet it,” Mr. Elleithee said. “If the hospital claims it did not happen that way, we respect that. (Source)

April 7, 2008, Clinton partly vindicated.

Clinton erred in telling audiences that the Ohio woman lacked insurance when seeking help for her troubled pregnancy. But according to Casto’s account, Bachtel’s medical tragedy began with circumstances very close to the essence of Clinton’s now-abandoned account: the lack of insurance created a $100 barrier to needed medical attention close to home.

Tomorrow is another day with a good chance of another lie.

Hillary in Tuzula – The Truth

Carole Midgen – Democratic Scofflaw

March 23, 2008

Today, California State Senator, Carole Midgeon has the honor of joining my list of Democratic Scandals.

Carole Midgen (b. 1948 ) — Midgen is a California state senator and a former member of the state assembly. She is a member of the National Democratic Committee. On March 20, 2008, the California Fair Political Practices Commission announced that Midgen was accessed the largest fine in the Commission’s history of $350,000 for 89 violations of the state’s campaign financing laws. In addition to this fine, Midgen is contesting additional charges of misuse of campaign funds in a Federal lawsuit against the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

The senator also has some driving issues. On May 18, 2007, the senator rear-ended a 2005 Honda sedan, which was slowing to a stop behind a van that had already stopped at a red signal light at the intersection of Beck Avenue and Highway 12 in Solano County.

Migden’s office released a statement saying that her cell phone rang and in reaching for the phone, she took her eyes off the road.

Later, she said it was the medication she was taking to keep her leukemia in remission that caused her to lose focus on her driving.

However, more than half a dozen motorists called 911 to report erratic driving by the San Francisco Democrat, whose district includes southern Sonoma County, including Petaluma and Rohnert Park, the CHP said.

Midgen eventually was sentenced to informal probation for reckless driving.

Eleven years ago, Midgen was showing her sensitivity to the locals in Sacramento by running them off the road.

Teresa Latham, a tax technician at the state Board of Equalization, said she still harbors bitter feelings about the accident that totaled the car she had paid off eight months earlier.

She said Migden barely spoke to her and didn’t seem worried about her welfare after Latham’s car was spun onto O Street from 15th Street, causing the air bag to go off.

For her part, Carole Migden is quoted in the March 23, 2008 San Francisco Chronicle as stating,

“People don’t really care about things like this – they care about the work you do,” Migden said. “I can only face up to it, say I’m sorry and move on.”

Midgen seems to more than qualified to join the others on my list of Democratic Scandals.

Diane Feinstein Wants a Secret Court to Protect the Telephone Companies

December 19, 2007

Fifty years ago, officers from the Signal Security Agency, the predecessor to the National Security Agency, visited an executive from International Telephone and Telegraph and asked for copies of all foreign government cables carried by the company.

The request was a direct violation of a 1934 law that banned the interception of domestic communications, but Attorney General Tom Clark backed it.

Initially reluctant, ITT relented when told that its competitor, Western Union, had already agreed to supply this information. As James Bamford relates in his book The Puzzle Palace, the government told ITT it “would not desire to be the only non-cooperative company on the project.”

RCA Global Communications, Western Union, and American Cable and Radio Corporation all just jumped right in and signed on to an obviously unlawful program.

Shamrock, was the code name for the effort to collect cables sent through U.S.-controlled telegraph lines ultimately involved all the American telecom giants of the era, captured private as well as government cables, and lasted nearly 30 years. (Read more here)

Well, here we are again in December of 2007 with the same sort of nonsense going on.

Senator Diane Feinstein says she wants a “Secret Court” to decide if the telephone companies believed that they were acting legally.

This is ridiculous.

These companies understood they were breaking the law when they were doing this sort of thing in the past, and they understand they are breaking the law today.

This is obviously why they want immunity from prosecution.

How come we need to give the telecommunications corporations some sort of special secret court? How many other criminals get to have their own special court and judge to appeal to when they get caught doing something unlawful?

What is wrong with that woman?

As further evidence that these outfits knew they were on shaky ground, one company, Qwest, had the courage to stand up and tell the government that they wouldn’t take part in their unlawful scheme.

It’s all the more unusual, because Qwest was a company that was not particularly known for it’s business ethics.

Don’t you think these corporate attorneys and general counsels talk to each other?

Once again, these corporations knew they were breaking the law when they did this sort of thing in the past, and they know they are breaking the law now.

They should not get any immunity… period.
