Out of Africa? Political Correctness and Science

African_sunset - Copy

Regular readers may know that I’m wont to joke that we are all African-Americans, and so should be eligible for minority set-asides, scholarships and/or reparations (should they ever be awarded). My joke is based upon the prevailing hypothesis about the origin of modern Homo sapiens sapiens.  Personally, I’ve never accepted the Out of Africa model (aka single replacement), but it’s been the favored scientific “wisdom” for some time. The proposals of Milford H. Wolpoff, who advances the multiregional hypothesis, have always seemed to make more sense, but even that model envisions Africa as our ultimate homeland.

Of Smidgens and Stool Pigeons

Barack Obama on the IRS targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups for partisan political gain:

There were some bone-headed decisions. …

Not even mass corruption — not even a smidgen of corruption. [emphasis added to quotes]

CIA’s John O. Brennan Apologizes for Spying on Our Watchdogs

An apology? Seriously? I wonder how Scooter Libby feels about this:

The director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, issued an extraordinary apology to leaders of the US Senate intelligence committee on Thursday, conceding that the agency employees spied on committee staff and reversing months of furious and public denials. [emphasis added to quotes]

IRS Was Supposed to Archive Instant Messages

We learned recently that some more very convenient computer crashes happened at the IRS, among cronies of Lois Lerner. The number is now less than 20, but counting. Seriously? What are the odds?

One might ask, as Obama did with regard to the investigation (or lack thereof) into the Ukraine plane crash, and without any apparent sense of irony:

What exactly are they trying to hide?

IRS Required by Federal Judge to Explain Under Oath Where Lois Lerner’s Email Went

IRS - Copy

Is this the beginning of the unraveling of the IRS scandal?  Finally someone takes the side of the People.  The IRS must explain under oath how it “lost” Lois Lerner’s email. In addition, a federal judge has appointed a “federal magistrate” to investigate whether any of her email can be recovered. Continue reading

The Invasion of the UACs (Unaccompanied Alien Children)

Illegal alien crossing

Our Independence Day celebrations were deliberately disrupted and dampened by numerous discouraging stories about the invasion of our country by hordes of “unaccompanied alien children”. These “children”, most of whom consist of young men in their late teens, are illegally entering our country after traversing at least a thousand miles of the deserts of Mexico, a country which seems to be doing nada to stop them. Hundreds of the “unaccompanied” are age two or younger. Imagine them crawling or toddling across the border!

BSoBS: An IRS Blue Screen of BS

BSoD - CopyA Blue Screen of Death (or Doom; aka BSoD) or, in the case of the IRS, a Blue Screen of BS (BSoBS).

The IRS and Lois Lerner blame “dated technology” for the computer crash that they unbelievably, even laughably, claim was responsible for the loss of Lerner’s email from 2009 through the middle of 2011, the crucial period of time during which any conspiracy to target Tea Party groups would have been hatched and carried out. Targeting began in 2010. [emphasis added to quotes]

“Frankly, these are the critical years of the targeting of conservative groups that could explain who knew what when, and what, if any, coordination there was between agencies,” said Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) in a statement. “Instead, because of this loss of documents, we are conveniently left to believe that Lois Lerner acted alone.”
