Polar Bears Rejoice (Open Thread)

Ice sheet grows by 60% over just one year. Polar bears rejoice!

Now hear this:  “Global Warming” is a hoax.  Gee, it’s not as if we didn’t know or suspect that already, but here’s proof for you.

Contrary to predictions that the ice would have vanished by this summer, it has actually increased by 60% from last year.

The “global citizens” who want to use “climate change” as an excuse to fundamentally transform all civilization want you to believe that the polar ice caps are melting. Well, they’re not.  The UK’s Daily Mail reports: [emphasis added]

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.

The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores. …

Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century – a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading. …

In March, this newspaper further revealed that temperatures are about to drop below the level that the models forecast with ‘90 per cent certainty’.

The pause – which has now been accepted as real by every major climate research centre – is important, because the models’ predictions of ever-increasing global temperatures have made many of the world’s economies divert billions of pounds into ‘green’ measures to counter  climate change.

Those predictions now appear gravely flawed.

We pause now to allow the communist global citizens to come up with yet another rationale to explain away this newest anomaly (which was, once again, not predicted by their models).

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,

Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.  [or your climate models]

“The play’s the thing,” but there will be no catching the consciences of these kings!Harold_Copping-_Hamlet_PlayScene_1897 - Copy

Climate change true believers (aka true liars) see no facts, hear no facts, and speak no facts that don’t  support their contention that the sky is falling the Earth is warming, the seas are drying up, and we’ll all die unless we “go green” and revert to living like Cro-Magnon humans.

Sharpen your stone axes!  You’re going to need them to hunt ibex and haul them back to your environmentally friendly stone shelters.

While I’m on the subject of paleontology:  Note that “white” people very well might have walked (or sailed or rowed) across to Canada from Europe and Russia, if they so chose, especially if they were chasing down some delicious musk oxen or hunting seals or fishing.

Every picture tells a story and this one supports theories that say it’s as likely as not that “whites” were amongst the “first nations” of this hemisphere, too. But that’s another story that’s “not been well received” because of, well, political correctness.

Word is that polar bears

Polar_bears - Copytheir populations already “inexplicably” on the increase since President Bush declared them endangered–

are rejoicing!

 

More sea ice = more blow holes = more seals to eat!

What’s not to like about global cooling?

Well, for one thing, if you’re a socialist like Barack Hussein Obama II, global cooling doesn’t give you an excuse to redistribute public money to political cronies who then cash in, big time, with their “green energy” projects.

  1. New open thread. I’ll begin with some quick comments about this Syria fiasco. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/white-house-working-to-rally-lawmakers-american-public-behind-obamas-push-for-syrian-strike/2013/09/08/66cfb932-1868-11e3-80ac-96205cacb45a_story.html

    The WH said over the weekend that we should apply a “common-sense test” to the lack of evidence that Assad’s responsible for the chemical attack (if any). McDonough said, “this is not a court of law. And intelligence does not work that way.” Meaning that you don’t get “irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable doubt evidence” from “intelligence”. Gee, they said differently when GWB was going into Iraq. The HYPOCRISY is mind numbing. McDonough further said,”The common-sense test says he [Assad] is responsible for this. He should be held to account.”

    We the People have been applying a “common-sense test” to Barry’s LACK OF EVIDENCE of his eligibility to be POTUS for at least 5 years now. This isn’t a court of law BECAUSE there’s NEVER BEEN ANY EXAMINATION OF ANY OF THE EVIDENCE IN ANY OF THE COURT CASES BROUGHT TO CHALLENGE HIS BOGUS BIRTH CERTIFICATE. NEVER. Thus, we have no “irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable doubt evidence” to PROVE that he’s ineligible. By the same token, there’s no “irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable doubt evidence” to PROVE that he IS eligible, is there? NOPE.

    So we apply our common-sense test:

    If he had a real birth certificate, wouldn’t he produce it?

    If he had a real birth certificate on file in Hawaii, wouldn’t he allow the media to see it?

    If he had it, would he instead spend millions to suppress it, even going so far as to imprison a decorated soldier who questioned its authenticity, thus punishing, not only the man but also his wife and children, for decades (seeing as how the man lost his well-deserved military pension and benefits)?

    If he was born in the USA, why would his own publisher claim in a biography vetted by Obama himself, that Obama was born in Kenya; and why did this biography continue to make that claim for nearly 17 years, until Obama decided to run for president?

    I could go on, but the preponderance of the evidence causes anyone with COMMON SENSE to conclude that he’s ineligible. Why? To quote Obama:

    “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth, are people with something to hide.”

    OBAMA “SHOULD BE HELD TO ACCOUNT” BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  2. The AQ-associated rebels continue their pogrom against Christians. Using the Obama standard, then we ought to be siding with Assad AGAINST these Islamists who are practicing genocide against Christians. They’ve destroyed hundreds of Christian churches–one of them over 1600 years old. It’s a tragedy on the scale of Bamiyan, perpetrated by the Taliban in Afghanistan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhas_of_Bamiyan So, in essence, Obama is siding with the very people who helped bring down the Twin Towers on 9/11/01–and he expects our representatives to give him the green light ON the anniversary of that attack. For symbolic value, it ranks right up there with the Air Force One flyover after Barry’s election. Will our Congress EVER WAKE UP?

    It figures that we are against the military regime in Egypt and support its opponents, the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood. On a happy note, the Egyptian military is cleaning out a nest of AQ jihadists in the Sinai, something that Morsi put on hold during his thankfully short reign.

    So here We the People are: Strange bedfellows with the likes of Code Pink and giving more credibility to PUTIN, of all people, and Assad and the military leaders in Egypt than our own purported POtuS and clownish Secretary of State.

    Will our representatives listen to We the People? Or will they knuckle under, if only to allow Barry to save face, but possibly under pressure from facts provided to Barry via his illegal and unconstitutional NSA?

  4. Any of us could have written this article. I’m glad to see this in the mainstream media: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323595004579062811443943666.html

    “It is entirely understandable that Barack Obama’s way of dealing with Syria in recent weeks should have elicited responses ranging from puzzlement to disgust. Even members of his own party are despairingly echoing in private the public denunciations of him as “incompetent,” “bungling,” “feckless,” “amateurish” and “in over his head” coming from his political opponents on the right.

    For how else to characterize a president who declares war against what he calls a great evil demanding immediate extirpation and in the next breath announces that he will postpone taking action for at least 10 days—and then goes off to play golf before embarking on a trip to another part of the world? As if this were not enough, he also assures the perpetrator of that great evil that the military action he will eventually take will last a very short time and will do hardly any damage. Unless, that is, he fails to get the unnecessary permission he has sought from Congress, in which case (according to an indiscreet member of his own staff) he might not take any military action after all.

    Summing up the net effect of all this, as astute a foreign observer as Conrad Black can flatly say that, “Not since the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, and before that the fall of France in 1940, has there been so swift an erosion of the world influence of a Great Power as we are witnessing with the United States.”

    Yet if this is indeed the pass to which Mr. Obama has led us—and I think it is—let me suggest that it signifies not how incompetent and amateurish the president is, but how skillful. His foreign policy, far from a dismal failure, is a brilliant success as measured by what he intended all along to accomplish
    . The accomplishment would not have been possible if the intention had been too obvious. The skill lies in how effectively he has used rhetorical tricks to disguise it. …”

    What he was disguising is that his plan, all along, as WE KNEW from the beginning, was to destroy the USA from within. The entire article is worth reading. Alinsky comes into it, too.

    “The U.S. attorney’s office in Springfield has been busy the past few years investigating a variety of fraud schemes involving state grants. Thirteen people have been charged so far, six who have pleaded guilty.

    Two of them have ties to President Barack Obama. One is the daughter of his controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Another was chief of staff to Obama’s longtime friend Eric E. Whitaker when Whitaker was Illinois’ public health chief. …”

  6. Dana Loesch reported on her radio show that Hillary Clinton is “speaking” out publicly in support of Obama in a planned appearance this afternoon. Politico did report that she was to speak. Here’s what gets my goat: Hillary said she has been “briefed” on the Syrian situation. BRIEFED!! Hillary. And who is she? Nothing and nobody. A FORMER Secretary of State and a FORMER First Lady. Other than that, she’s NOT ANY DIFFERENT THAN YOU OR I OR ANY OTHER CITIZEN.

    I want a personal briefing from the WH and the POTUS about the Syrian situation. I’ll bet her briefing is more in depth than that of ANY REPRESENTATIVE OF WE THE PEOPLE.

    Briefed. Indeed! She was in on the conspiracy. She’s RESPONSIBLE for what’s happening now. Of course she’s going to support Barry. He knows what REALLY HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI.

    • Yes, its an outrage, Hillary Clinton being “debriefed”. How dare they? She represents no one and has no office whatsoever. How Dare They?

      And, I caught her little nugget: “and our friends in the region? Like Who?
      Name them.

      And who is The Head of State of Lybia, presently? hmmmm I’ll wait.

      Bengahzi? Where was the POTUS on 9/11/12 an exactly what was he doing.

      Juan Williams was extremely dishonest yesterday on Fox and even insulted Brett Hume as the show closed. He told Hume that Benghazi is old news, over – and if its anything of a big deal, it is only in Hume’s head. Bad Actor.
      Beware.

    • Well Hillary and Billy boy are probably acting on behalf of some foreign entity,say like some high up Saudi Royal, not acting on behalf of We the Peops any way. They’ll probably get some slice of the big pie, like Syria’s largest natural gas pipeline (maybe largest in the world), after Saudi and the US destroy Assad’s regime. They do nothing unless it serves them. They’ve always had shady foreign characters as bedfellows, so it’s no surprise to me that she’s jumped back on board when she thought it would server HER Hillary the HuN.

  7. Blunder or a plan? http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/09/09/Putin-takes-advantage-of-kerry-blunder

    “In what looks like an off-the-cuff blunder, Secretary of State John Kerry might have accidentally given Russian President Vladmir Putin the opportunity to muddy the international diplomatic waters and buy his friends in Syria some time.

    During a press briefing on Monday, Kerry said that Assad could avoid American air strikes by giving up all his chemical weapons within a week. Within hours, the State Department was forced to walk Kerry’s new red line back with the claim that he was making a “rhetorical argument about the impossibility and unlikelihood of Assad turning over chemical weapons he has denied he used.”

    It seems, then, reasonable to conclude that Kerry spoke out of turn. Kerry was not authorized to offer Syria an “out” or a new ultimatum. But Kerry’s hypothetical hyperbole appears to have already backfired.

    In an obvious desire to make Kerry pay for his flub and throw a wrench in Obama’s determination to go to war with Syria, Putin has seized upon Kerry’s hypothetical and called on Syria to accept Kerry’s offer and turn over all of its chemical weapons. No one believes Assad would ever willingly give up his chemical weapons, but should he agree to an offer the Obama administration did not mean to make, it could stall American action for weeks and even months.

    Syria is already warming to the idea.

    This complication could be a major blow to all of the Obama administration’s prepared plans to punish Assad for using the weapons and to change the balance of power in the ongoing Syrian civil war. Public opposition to Obama’s war is already surging. Weeks or months from now, after the torturous international diplomatic process that no one believes would end with Assad giving up the chemical weapons that keep him in power winds down, it is doubtful Congress or the American public would be ready to stomach a renewed push for war. …”

  8. Here’s a quote referencing 1984, especially for Citizen Wells: http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/how-the-nsa-spies-on-smartphones-including-the-blackberry-a-921161.html

    “The US intelligence agency NSA has been taking advantage of the smartphone boom. It has developed the ability to hack into iPhones, android devices and even the BlackBerry, previously believed to be particularly secure.

    In exploiting the smartphone, the intelligence agency takes advantage of the carefree approach many users take to the device. According to one NSA presentation, smartphone users demonstrate “nomophobia,” or “no mobile phobia.” The only thing many users worry about is losing reception. A detailed NSA presentation titled, “Does your target have a smartphone?” shows how extensive the surveillance methods against users of Apple’s popular iPhone already are.

    In three consecutive transparencies, the authors of the presentation draw a comparison with “1984,” George Orwell’s classic novel about a surveillance state, revealing the agency’s current view of smartphones and their users. “Who knew in 1984 that this would be Big Brother …” the authors ask, in reference to a photo of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. And commenting on photos of enthusiastic Apple customers and iPhone users, the NSA writes: “… and the zombies would be paying customers?

    In fact, given the targets it defines, the NSA can select a broad spectrum of user data from Apple’s most lucrative product, at least if one is to believe the agency’s account.

    The results the intelligence agency documents on the basis of several examples are impressive. They include an image of the son of a former defense secretary with his arm around a young woman, a photo he took with his iPhone. A series of images depicts young men and women in crisis zones, including an armed man in the mountains of Afghanistan, an Afghan with friends and a suspect in Thailand. …”

    Any questions? See Syria. What other types of photos have they obtained?

    Photo gallery here of some of the slides referenced in the article: http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/photo-gallery-spying-on-smartphones-fotostrecke-101201.html

    Your gummint considers YOU to be a zombie. But they and Barry aren’t Big Brother. Nope. That’s Bill Gates. Go figure.

    Here’s a question: Is the NSA NOT a criminal organization? They applaud themselves (with champagne) for their HACKING skills, in violating our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS? Just because they CAN break encryption, then that makes the users “zombies”? There’s something seriously wrong within that organization and Congress needs to defund it RIGHT NOW.

    • This story talks about how the NSA tortures the English language in order to “target” Americans without targeting them. What I want to know is this: FROM WHAT COUNTRY is the “former defense secretary” whose son’s iPhone was hacked? Rumsfeld has a son. If this son is an American and if his father is an American, then WHAT is the NSA doing hacking his phone? A quote:

      “… President Barack Obama’s administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the NSA’s use of intercepted phone calls and emails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.

      In addition, the court extended the length of time that the NSA is allowed to retain intercepted U.S. communications from five years to six years — and more under special circumstances, according to the documents, which include a recently released 2011 opinion by U.S. District Judge John Bates, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

      What had not been previously acknowledged is that the court in 2008 imposed an explicit ban — at the government’s request — on those kinds of searches, that officials in 2011 got the court to lift the bar and that the search authority has been used.

      Together, the permission to search and to keep data longer expanded the NSA’s authority in significant ways without public debate or any specific authority from Congress. The administration’s assurances rely on legalistic definitions of the term “target” that can be at odds with ordinary English usage. The enlarged authority is part of a fundamental shift in the government’s approach to surveillance: collecting first, and protecting Americans’ privacy later.”

      Another story with interesting parsing: http://gizmodo.com/how-the-nsa-misleads-the-public-without-technically-lyi-1238670780

      So what’s SYRIA if not a distraction from all these scandals? It’s said that Congress planned to address the NSA outrages when they come back in session. But wait! Now Syria. Then what?

    • The scariest thing about learning all this is the thought of electronic voting.
      Imagine what they can do. Imagine what they have done already.

      Yes, the NSA among others is an organized federal conglomerate against the People and the Constitution of the United States. Its threatening. Its a coup. We’ve are no longer free.

      • Its time to bring back pens, pencils, paper, cameras, “land line” phones, calculators and calendars. Buy stamps and support the Post Office. Stop giving cashiers your zip-code. Get rid of the “smartphone”. Buy a generic cellphone and pay for the minutes over the counter.

        And always remember they are scanning your emails for key words as they funnel it into your personal DHS electronic Pod that probably has an identification bar code identifying you, the inhabitant. Your 9 digit zipcode, social security number and codes for your race, gender, marital status, religion, political party affiliation, actively employed, veteran…just the basics, your personal bar code, your Inventory Pod Address. (IPA ? (: )

        The IRS is the Police State.

        Defund ObamaScare. Its your judge and executioner.

      • Excellent point, Papoose. Orwell was right. He was just a little too early in his predictions. We ARE no longer free, and our so-called representatives do NOTHING.

    “On The Record: Rep. Woodall And Lt. Zullo Talk Obama ID Fraud; Phony Forged Document”

    “On September 6th 2013, Kevin Powell, a former CNN Producer/Editor met with U.S. Congressional Representative Rob Woodall in his local district office in Georgia.”

    http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2013/09/rep-woodall-and-lt-zullo-talk-obama-fraud.html

    Some comments at ORYR:

    FALCON: “Woodall fell back to the old standard of the “election is over – so it’s moot”. Further, Woodall implies that an election nullifies the crimes committed.

    Zullo better wake up and realize he can’t meet with one congressman per month and gain any momentum. Obama will be out of office before Zullo makes it through the current Congress, never-mind the next Congress.

    Zullo should release this info – and let the rest take care of itself.”
    —–
    GaryW: “I see a Congressman clearly going through the motions. He has his talking points from the republican leadership and he conveniently imposes a time limit on the phone call…his time is so precious you know. This guy clearly is not going to do a damn thing…notice how he passes the buck back to Zullo. He is not interested. He is a useless piece of **** that should be run out of office. He has no integrity and no courage to do the right thing and call a press conference and tell the world the TRUTH! He should be fanning the flames of LIBERTY…instead he just rolls over and we are essentially told to accept this communist fraud in the White House.”
    —–
    cfkerchner: “Congressman Woodall is shockingly unconcerned and very dismissive of the Obama forged docs issues and crimes committed thereby by Obama. He also said in this interview that he has not heard much from his constituents recently about the issue of Obama’s forged docs as his reason for being dismissive. He also seems to think that the courts are the only recourse to the people and thus is dodging Congress’ investigative abilities and authorities to investigate Obama’s forged ID documents and felony ID fraud….”
    ==========
    “William Robert Woodall III (born February 11, 1970) is an American politician who has been the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 7th congressional district since 2011. He is a member of the Republican Party.”

  10. NSA is a criminal organization like the rest of Gubmint. 😡

  11. Russia has a better President the we do. 😯

    • It’s REALLY something that we can say that. At least Putin, and I mean this sincerely, is a man. HE KNOWS, too, who our COMMON ENEMY is. Russia has suffered from jihad, too. Kerry, it’s said, won’t listen to Putin who keeps pointing out to him how the “rebels” are basically AQ. Now Putin has given Barry a way out. Did you hear, btw? This is REALLY special. Barry and Susan Rice, both allegedly black (actually white blacks), had a SPECIAL TOP SECRET SEGREGATED MEETING TODAY WITH THE RACIST CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS. This, because it was reported nationwide that they DON’T support him on this. Details at Gateway Pundit: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/09/exclusive-obamas-jim-crow-foreign-policy-segregated-syria-war-meeting-at-white-house-with-congressional-black-caucus/

      Imagine if, before Iraq or Afghanistan, GWB had met in secret with ONLY the white members of Congress. What a racist this so-called POtuS is. NO DOUBT. A RACIST. Those congresspersons should have REFUSED to meet in private in a SEGREGATED meeting. It’s OUTRAGEOUS.

      • They are hiding their true plan. The chemical weapons may exist but it has no bearing on what they are really doing. Its another video ruse.

        They have people convinced its all about chemical weapons which is ludicrous. They are playing EPIC Third World Wars games behind the scenes. And they are ALL in the the mechanical stages, collaborating the outcome as the booty will eventually need to be distributed.

        Hillary Clinton is the dead give away. She’s a Tool. What a ruse for her to speak on this issue under false pretenses. Busted.

        • You know what’s scary? That story (was it at Infowars?) about how nukes were moved from a base in NC that allegedly had no nukes to move, so secret were they. And then you have Lindsey Graham talking about how, if we strike Syria, we risk being nuked. He mentioned Charleston harbor. WTF kind of games are they playing? Thinking about all the ammo, guns, checkpoints, and gulags they bought. All the prepping of all law enforcement people. All the propaganda to train them to see us as the enemy. All the false flag practice runs. What else were Sandy Hook and Boston?

          • And that is scary Miri, I’ve been a little under the weather so I didn’t know anything about Nukes or…Charleston Harbor????? Miri, what’s with my Avatar???

            • alfy, I don’t know what happened. Looks like ALMOST everybody’s avatar went haywire. I just got online and will have to check with WordPress and/or the other moderators to see what changed.

              • It looks as if it’s displaying correctly now (except on my dashboard, which you can’t see, anyway.) Maybe WordPress is in the process of fixing it. Yesterday evening, WordPress was running slowly, at least for me. This usually happens when they’re messing with something. alfy, I don’t know why you were in moderation. I see nothing different with your name, email address, or IP#. I’m guessing that WordPress screwed something up. Is that a different avatar for you? How about anybody else? Is it changed?

        • I think you’re right Papoose; you’re whole statement is right on.

          • Wo! Who am I . I’m in moderation, is that because I’m green with horns. What happened to my signature brainiac hairdo? I’m lost without my brainy hairdo! What happened….I don’t match my usual signature.

          • Mine seems alright. 🙂

            • Thanks. I think the people with a problem were those like me who didn’t choose a gravatar. Except mine stayed okay. Seems only alfy’s changed.

          • Thanks for responding Miri. Today, looks like right now ,I’m still green will see what happens when I post this. could be all the poo poo politics going on. Ain’t it a Hoot, HOOT, all the crap Obama is spewing may turn us all green, with horns and a loud mouth. Some lady on Rush today, said pop culture generation is the main thing to change opinion of the Majesty Obama…..she thinks just putting the bug in their ear in social media, ect. would get the ball rolling. I said something like this a little bit ago. I still think that may be right. Blogs can’t shut us out completely if enough of us go everywhere with insinuations and the like. It’s the only tool we have, since like you say Miri, we can’t call up like Lady, I mean Tramp Hillary , and get to have a convesation with O. We’ve got to push opinion, wherher subliminally or shaout it all over every blog. O. and his administration pay attention and live by social media. We could cause him much greif. How do we start?????

            • Isn’t it special? They deployed the USS BARRY to the area. WTF is he going to say tonight, anyway? He can’t miss a chance to get his face in front of a camera. Tell us what you REALLY think of him, Pegs. http://blogs.wsj.com/peggynoonan/2013/09/10/making-sense-of-syria/

              “The president has backed away from a military strike in Syria. But he can’t acknowledge this or act as if it is true. He is acting and talking as if he’s coolly, analytically, even warily contemplating the Russian proposal and the Syrian response. …

              The president will keep the possibility of force on the table, but really he’s lunging for a lifeline he was lucky to be thrown.

              Why is he backing off? Because he knows he doesn’t have the American people and isn’t going to get them.

              He knows he was going to lose Congress, not only the House but very possibly—likely, I’d say—the Senate. …

              A serious foreign-policy intellectual said recently that Putin’s problem is that he’s a Russian leader in search of a Nixon, a U.S. president he can really negotiate with, a stone player who can talk grand strategy and the needs of his nation, someone with whom he can thrash it through and work it out. Instead he has Obama, a self-besotted charismatic who can’t tell the difference between showbiz and strategy, and who enjoys unburdening himself of moral insights to his peers.

              But Putin has no reason to want a Syrian conflagration. He is perhaps amused to have a stray comment by John Kerry be the basis for a resolution of the crisis. The hidden rebuke: It means that when Putin met with Obama at the G-20 last week Obama, due to his lack of competence, got nothing. But a stray comment by the Secretary of State? Sure, why not rub Obama’s face in it.

              [Tonight Obama] will claim the moral high ground. He will temporarily reserve the use of force and welcome recent diplomatic efforts. He will suggest it was his threat of force that forced a possible diplomatic solution. His people will be all over the airwaves saying it was his deft leadership and steely-eyed threat to use force that allowed for a diplomatic break.

              The real purpose of the speech will be to lay the predicate for a retrospective judgment of journalists and, later, historians. He was the president who warned the world and almost went—but didn’t go—to war to make a point that needed making.

              Before or after the speech there will be some quiet leaking to the press that yes, frankly, the president, with so many difficult domestic issues facing him and Congress in the fall, wanted, sympathetically, to let lawmakers off the hook. They never wanted to vote on this. …”

              She’s got him down pat. It took long enough. We saw through him FROM THE GET GO.

              • More from Peggy Noonan:

                “Then get ready for the spin job of all spin jobs. It’s already begun: the White House is beginning to repeat that a diplomatic solution only came because the president threatened force. That is going to be followed by something that will grate on Republicans, conservatives, and foreign-policy journalists and professionals. But many Democrats will find it sweet, and some in the political press will go for it, if for no other reason than it’s a new story line.

                It is that Syria was not a self-made mess, an example of historic incompetence. It was Obama’s Cuban Missile Crisis—high-stakes, eyeball-to-eyeball, with weapons of mass destruction and an implacable foe. The steady waiting it out, the inner anguish, the idea that crosses the Telex that seems to soften the situation. A cool, calibrated, chancy decision to go with the idea, to make a measured diplomatic concession. In the end it got us through the crisis.

                Really, they’re going to say this. And only in part because this White House is full of people who know nothing—really nothing—about history. They’ve only seen movies.

                The only question is who plays Bobby. Get ready for a leak war between Kerry’s staff and Hillary Clinton’s. …”

                I think I’m going to be sick.

            • Hey! I finally saw the problem. alfy, on your email address, there’s a period (.) between your name and the @. That made WordPress think you’re someone new, so you went into moderation and it gave you a new avatar. I think if you fix the email address, it will go back to your brainiac avatar. Hope you’re feeling better. Glad you’re back. Sometimes, I find myself talking to myself for hours.

              I’m NOT in any way going to watch asshat speak tonight and I think it would be the icing on his crow cake if he got the lowest ratings EVER. I hope NOBODY watches, but even so–I bet they will LIE about it. I already believe in my heart of hearts that they’re lying about how many people went to see that racist movie of Oprah’s. I bet she bought loads of tickets herself. Handed them out at Chicago schools, no doubt.

  12. 2 B watching…OR Not B watching……. ps … what does it MATTER?
    talk – talk – talk – double talk… Usurper,…. SHOW us WHO U ARE!

  13. Yep!… as long as those BOOTS come HOME with ALL our FIGHTERS…
    STILL wearing THEM? … OK… then let’s talk about BOOTS!

  14. Censorship? You decide! I think the entire country should boycott CBS until they make a formal and very public appology! They need to be shamed!

    CBS News (National News) did not air tonight on the East Coast or the Central United States. This is the same CBS with the blockbuster Charlie Rose (not my favorite) interview with Assad this weekend. Here in the Central US, we got to hear a REPEAT of our local news.

    I called my local CBS station and was told that Scott Pelley did not produce a news cast for this evening. They said it was because on the East coast they aired TENNIS. Here in the central US, we got NOTHING! With all of the world news happening now, we got NOTHING! I was told that there was going to be a newscast for the West Coast because they are 3 hours behind us. For the Central US it’s only 2 hours. Journalism is truly DEAD!

  15. Where’s the love? Where is it? Remember when the world was in love with Barry? Remember when the left was? Where’s the love now?

    Does ANY reasonably sane person NOT have whiplash after watching this guy? The King of Dithers. Only Kerry comes close, with regard to being LAME. He’s carrying an “unbelievably small” stick.

    No wonder our status in the world is sinking. Hopefully, the next POTUS, like the one who followed Carter, will set this ship upright (so long as s/he’s a conservative! GOVERNOR PALIN FOR POTUS!)

  16. Well, I can’t argue with ANY of this. A letter to our Congress from the Syrian parliament:
    http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/syrian-parliament-letter-to-the-us-house-of-representatives/

  17. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/10/world/middleeast/surprise-russian-proposal-catches-obama-between-putin-and-house-republicans.html?_r=0

    NY Times says Barry bailed out by Putin. In essence. Now he can instantly pivot to his fundamental transformation of the USA.

    However, is Barry STILL going to ask Congress to approve his war resolution? It may be so. This may be a ploy to TRICK THEM into approving it because they THINK it won’t be necessary, if Assad complies. Barry might argue that the resolution will be an ace up his sleeve to be used ONLY if Barry decides Assad’s not complying and then, BOOM! Barry will do what Barry wants and he won’t be the war criminal. Nope. It will be Congress’s fault and our whole government will be held to account and not just him. The rebels oppose this proposal. Well, of course they do. Their ploy didn’t work. The most compelling argument Assad made is that to support the rebels is to support AL QAEDA!!! Barry has ALREADY send over $800,000 in our money, during a sequester, to these Al Qaeda-connected “rebels”. THAT’S A CRIME IN ITSELF, ACCORDING TO JUDGE NAPOLITANO. IT’S ILLEGAL TO SEND ANY MONEY TO SUPPORT AL QAEDA TERRORISTS. Chalk up another one for Barry. When WILL the Congress give us relief? IMPEACH HIM NOW. WTF are they waiting for?

  18. Don’t our “leaders” look like they know what they’re doing? http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09/10/syrian-opposition-against-new-kerry-lavrov-plan-to-avoid-strike.html

    “The Obama administration’s position on Kerry’s remarks evolved over the course of the day. Officials initially sought to downplay the comments. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, traveling with Kerry in London, said in a statement to the traveling press that Kerry made a “rhetorical argument about the impossibility and unlikelihood of Assad turning over chemical weapons he has denied he used.”

    Kerry’s point was that “this brutal dictator with a history of playing fast and loose with the facts cannot be trusted to turn over chemical weapons. Otherwise he would have done so long ago,” Psaki said.

    “We absolutely believe that a strike would change the momentum on the ground.”

    Back in Washington, deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Kerry made “a hypothetical statement,” but that the administration would take a “hard look” at the Russian statement calling on the world to act on Kerry’s comment.

    In a speech Monday afternoon, National Security Adviser Susan Rice argued for the strike and didn’t mention the Kerry idea. Indeed, Rice said the U.S. had exhausted the diplomatic track.

    “The fact is, President Obama has consistently demonstrated his commitment to multilateral diplomacy,” Rice said. “He would much prefer the backing of the United Nations Security Council to uphold the international ban against the use of chemical weapons, [BUT SYRIA IS NOT SIGNATORY TO THAT BAN!!] whether in the form of sanctions, accountability, or authorizing the use of force. But let’s be realistic—it’s just not going to happen now. Believe me, I know. I was there for all of those U.N. debates and negotiations on Syria. I lived it. And it was shameful.”

    On Monday afternoon, former secretary of State Hillary Clinton emerged from a meeting with Obama and declared that Kerry’s idea was now under serious consideration. …”

    And BTW, HILLARY IS NOBODY. SHE HAS, OR SHOULD HAVE, NO ROLE IN THIS CRISIS. Her only role is to be held to account for the deaths of our guys in Benghazi.

  19. Consider the irony. What Barry said:

    “I welcome the possibility of the development. And John Kerry will be talking to his Russian counterparts. I think we should explore and exhaust all avenues of diplomatic resolution of this, but I think it’s important for us to keep the pressure on, and to quote a—or to paraphrase, at least, a former U.S. president, Ronald Reagan: it’s not enough just to trust; I think we’re going to have to verify.

    YES, BARRY. THAT’S WHY WE WANT TO VERIFY YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND ELIGIBILITY. IT’S NOT ENOUGH FOR WE THE PEOPLE TO TRUST YOU.

  20. Suddenly, the mainstream is reporting the black on white crime and in some cases calling them correctly as hate crimes.

    http://pix11.com/2013/09/09/union-square-beating-victim-dies-at-bellevue-hospital/

    ” … A 62-year-old man who was brutally attacked in Union Square last week died Monday.

    On Wednesday, a man shouting that he “hated white people” punched victim Jeffrey Babbitt — who is white — in the face, witnesses said, causing him to fall and strike his head on the ground.

    Lashawn Marten, 31, who is black, “made statements to the effect that I’m going to punch the first white man that I see,” said NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly. …”

    http://nypost.com/2013/09/09/bus-riders-face-smashed-in-during-hate-attack/

    “Bus rider’s face smashed in during ‘hate attack’

    An attacker pummeled a bus passenger so hard he smashed the bones in his face after calling the victim a “cracker” in Manhattan – marking the second time in two days that people appeared to be randomly targeted in racial tirades against white people, authorities said.

    In the latest incident, the suspect passed a 31-year-old rider on the M60 bus riding through Harlem, on West 127th Street, between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive, around 2:45 p.m., Friday, when he shouted the racial slur and punched the victim in the face, breaking his nose and eye socket, cops said.
    Modal Trigger

    The alleged M60 bus attacker

    The victim was treated for facial fractures at New York Presbyterian Hospital and released, police said.

    The incident occurred as authorities reported that Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, fell into a coma after being punched and knocked to the ground in Union Square Park on Wednesday. He was taken off life support and died Monday, sources said.

    In that case, a 31-year-old allegedly yelled that he was going to “f— up” the next white person he saw, before clocking Babbitt so hard that witnesses reported hearing his skull crack on the pavement.

    Two people who tried to help the victim were also punched but refused medical attention at the scene, law enforcement sources said.

    The assailant waited for police to arrest him and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the assault was being investigated as a hate crime.

    The suspect in the Harlem attack is 5-foot-11, 185 pounds and is believed to be in his late 30s.”

    Is this finally being reported because today’s the day of the NYC primary and the various candidates are using this as political fodder? Otherwise, why the sudden about face?

  21. Putin won: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/putin-didnt-save-obama-he-beat-him_753730.html

    “Maybe Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin really did discuss the idea of putting Syrian chemical weapons under international control last week on the sidelines of the G20 conference. Putin sure doesn’t care that Obama’s taking credit for the proposal, or that the administration is posturing like a Mob enforcer. “The only reason why we are seeing this proposal,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney, “is because of the U.S. threat of military action.”
    Vladimir Putin, Russia

    Right, Putin is laughing to himself. Whatever. If Obama wants to sell it like a Christmas miracle on Pennsylvania Avenue that’s fine with Putin, because Putin won.

    Reset with Russia was originally a strategic priority for the Obama administration because it saw Moscow as the key to getting Iran to come to the negotiating table. Putin, from the White House’s perspective, was destined for the role of junior partner. Now Putin has turned “Reset” upside down. By helping Obama out of a jam with Syria, Putin has made himself the senior partner to whom the White House is now beholden. Accordingly, when Putin proposes the same sort of deal with Iran, with Russia having established its bona fides as an interlocutor for Syria, Obama is almost certain to jump at it.

    What’s unclear is whether Obama understands that his foreign policy legacy will be to have ruined the American position in the Middle East, our patrimony of the last seven decades. If the 1979 takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran signaled weakness, the Russian deal screams surrender. The real surprise is that it’s not Iran kicking the United States out of the region under Obama’s watch, but Putin. …”

  22. They play games with the English language and now they play games with math:

    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/treasury-debt-0-august-cbo-deficit-was-146b

    “The federal deficit increased by $146 billion in August, according to a report released today by the Congressional Budget Office. But, at the same time, according to the U.S. Treasury, the federal debt did not increase at all during the month.

    Total federal receipts were $185 billion during August, according to the CBO, while total federal outlays were $331 billion. Thus, the Treasury was forced to engage in $146 billion in deficit spending.

    Despite this deficit spending, the Treasury reported that at the close of every single business day in August, the federal debt subject to a legal limit by Congress remained exactly $16,699,396,000,000.

    That is approximately just $25 million below the legal limit on the debt that is $16,699,421,095,673.60

    If the federal debt had climbed by the same $146 billion that the deficit climbed in August, it would have exceeded the legal limit by almost $146 billion. …”

    So, if they don’t acknowledge it, it didn’t happen? Only in the Obamanation. Likely yet another illegal act, but who’s counting?

    “Sarah Palin: Don’t Get Distracted With Foreign Fiasco “It is Time to Bomb Obamacare””

  26. What’s beyond laughable is that the talking point/meme is that without that “credible” threat of use of force, Assad wouldn’t have agreed to give his chemicals to Vlad. Well, WHEN WAS IT “CREDIBLE” with only 1 in 5 citizens supporting it, only (possibly) a bare majority in the Senate supporting it, and certainly the House rejecting it? His threat was never credible. So their LIES are a joke.

    Only six years ago, the BBC reported that the Arctic would be ice-free in summer by 2013, citing a scientist in the US who claimed this was a ‘conservative’ forecast.

    Katie Couric not only bought that lie but also tried to sell that lie to her audience with dramatic flourish…

    … for which she was rightly (and righteously!) parodied… (just watch the first 30 seconds)

  29. ( WE STILL “OWE LTC Terry Lankin an IOU” ) ….. 1 HONEST MAN
    who STOOD UP & it cost him his Pension (which they STOLE from him)
    keeping HIM behind BARS for 5 MONTHS for “WHOM” really? 4 what?

    http://www.barnhardt.biz/2013/09/09/confirmation-from-the-former-commandant-of-the-us-army-war-college/

    • It was three years ago tonight that I first had dinner with him.

      I remember seeing him on his last day in the Army.

      I appreciate whenever he is remembered. He’s a really nice guy, too. I’m glad its all behind him now and I hope he never regrets his honorable and selfless decision.

      • I hope that in the end, justice is done for LTC Lakin. IF we can put a conservative in the WH, then perhaps a pardon and restitution would be in order.

    • ” … As a former commandant of the War College, Gen. Scales is himself personally responsible for the culture of effeminate capitulation, obsession with power and money, and abject moral cowardice that is the veritable hallmark of the United States military officer corps today. This pathetic culture has been inculcated in the service academies and military academic centers (US Army War College, Command and General Staff College (CGSC), School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS), etc.) by a culture planted and fertilized by the Communist infiltrators of the U.S. dating all the way back to the mid-20th century. If you don’t believe me, just stop and consider how the leading tip of the “politically correct” culture today is the United States military. Every day it seems there is a new moral outrage involving the celebration of sodomy, the protection of islam and the suppression of Christianity within the US military and service academies.

      I erred in my recent interview with Elijah Jonson when I said that not a single man in the US Military was willing to stand up and call out the Obama regime. LTC Terry Lakin did it. And Terry spent five months in the Disciplinary Barracks at Ft. Leavenworth. But beyond that, he lost his pension. As a Lieutenant Colonel flight surgeon, that loss in lifetime benefits was estimated at over $2.5 million – and that was for a field grade reservist. I apologize to LTC Dr. Lakin for my mistake. …”

      Today is a good day to honor LTC Lakin for his noble attempt. If his protest had succeeded, MUCH harm might have been avoided.

    • SUBPOENA ALL OF THEM. Call Hillary back again, too.

    • He’s “not prepared” to let them testify. Who the hell is he to decide? http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/09/10/cbs-reporter-kerry-tells-congress-he-wont-make-benghazi-survivors-available-for-questioning-subpoenas-could-be-coming/

      “… House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday sent Kerry a formal letter demanding access to the survivors of the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

      “I must receive confirmation that the [State] Department will makes these witnesses available to Committee investigators by September 24, 2013,” the letter reads.

      “Otherwise, I will have no alternative but to consider the use of compulsory process,” the letter adds. …

      CNN recently reported, citing anonymous sources, that the CIA is polygraphing its operatives on a regular basis in an “unprecedented” effort to prevent Benghazi secrets from leaking out.

      CNN also revealed that as many 35 Americans were in Benghazi on the night of the deadly terror attack, according to inside sources. As many as seven were wounded and 21 Americans were reportedly working in the building known as the CIA annex.”

      Full letter at the link.
