Clarice (on a previous thread: if Obama's not re-elected, a lot of people might be looking at jail

Extraneous was concerned that the next administration not pull one of these "let's just turn the page" directives

I'm in favor of a Truman Committee, similar to his investigation of the war effort. Let's investigate where government failed the people.

Even if we don't prosecute, we have to hold them accountable so we can deride their smallness an reduce the possibility of it happening again.

Thomas Collins

Happy Birthday, sbw.

At LUN is today's Clarice's Pieces, which discusses the damage done when public officials act to create their personal Omelas.

sbw

Thnx, TC. The JOM community is a birthday present that keeps on giving the whole year long.

Thanks, TM, for making it possible.

Danube of Thought

Minus 16 at Raz today.

Captain Hate

HB sbw.

Needless to say, Penn State is all over the Sunday chat shows with state officials obviously not being able to say anything about an ongoing investigation. In a way this is the MFM at its worst, devoting significant time to an issue like this, rather than something more important to the nation as a whole which can be adequately commented on, to show that THEY CARE FOR THE CHILLLLLLLDREN. Franco Harris comes off as a dumb jock who is too stupid to understand the responsibilties that the BoT has to the university. If he had any friends who cared about him they'd tell him to stop making himself available for comment on this.

Gene Simmons:
'Debt crisis like fat people blaming bakers'

... It's your responsibility to be a grown-up and take care of yourself.
...
Capitalism is the best thing that ever happened to human beings. The welfare state sounds wonderful but it doesn't work.

Governments hand out more money than they have to support welfare and they land in debt.

Then they have to borrow money — and then there's interest on top of that.

That's bad business. And it has created a culture of entitlement.

narciso

Welol he doesn't 'just play one on TV' but he might have 'stayed at a Holiday Inn, Express,' Captain. On another note, Lawrence Spivak is screaming in the ether, at what Gregory AU '90, has done with the place.

Captain Hate

Juan Williams is actually making sense on Rick Perry even if he doesn't know the phrase is "self deprecating" and not "self depreciating".

Gmax

Why aren't you asking Obama? Is it because you're a coward or a sycophantic or a partisan or a hypocrite? Or all of the above?

That might get an emphatic yes out of Scott Pelley...

Captain Hate

David Gregory before 10 in the morning, narc? You've got an almost infinite capacity for pain.

narciso

Well it was more a generic observation, but he had his best Charlie Gibson hat, 'interrogating' Bachman, who came off pretty well, all told.

Captain Hate

In retrospect, the results of last night's Oregon/Stanford game shouldn't be surprising when you consider the miraculous job that Harbaugh has done with the previously hapless 49ers. You can't lose a coach like that and expect to move forward seamlessly.

Captain Hate

Octopi populations are in jeopardy as Juan tries to fit one for every forehead with his defense of OWS.

narc I'm glad that Michele came off pretty well, at least in your eyes. Although she's her own worst enemy with her need for attention, excessive even by the standards of politicians, I don't think she's a bad person and could be a good voice for conservatism if she'd dial it back.

Yikes, it's like even his teleprompter doesn't have a clue anymore;

narciso

She went back to her strong suit, which was challenging Obamacare, and defending waterboarding, Gregory countered with the dissent of 'my friends' and the top men in the army staff, but that isn't really dispositive, of course, releasing the interrogation memos, really made the point moot.

Gmax

Apparently the public parks in Denver were liberated last night? Where will the communists and code pinkos go now?

Captain Hate

Later at a press conference, Google CEO Steve Schmidt was asked about the remarks. Schmidt said it is hard to answer without knowing what the standard of laziness is. He did say thought that America could be more aggressive. "I think the government and the nation should always be focusing more on the fastest-growing parts of the world. So I'm not sure that's a new discovery," Schmidt.

However he noted he probably wouldn't have used the word lazy.

Wow, is this brainiac related to the dimwit who masterminded My Friend's 2008 campaign?

Back to Boulder, Gmax.

Benjamin Franklin

And still none of you fucking jews have bothered to thank me for my imaginary son's service in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.

While you Likud chickenhawks were lazily sitting behind your keyboards, I actually made the effort to fantasize that I was contributing to the war effort, and paid the ultimate price.

ABSOLUTE MORAL AUTHORITY, MOTHERFUCKERS!!!

I think Cain emerged from the debate as the most powerful of the bunch. I do not think he won the debate and I do not think he will win the primary, though.

Cain is sticking to a plan that lands him as the most credible and down to earth candidate I have seen in a long, long time. This is basis of the power that he has.

When Pawlenty jumped ship and backed Romney, it really made no dent. If Cain were to get out and subsequently back Romney or Gingrich; Cain would be creating the clear winner.

Now that would be bold.

No, that's the sockpuppet troll.

Who should recall that, when we got pissed off enough, we required little effort to track down Dana.

boris

"we required little effort ..."

Of course Jeff Goldstein did that several years back.

boris

Though after long denial it was DoT who provoked Dana into writing "my ex-wife" and giving away the game.

Barbara-Lurking

narciso...your link infuriated me!

So America is "lazy," "soft," has lost its "competitive edge" and "need[s] to get back on track." According to Obama, "we've lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do the things that built the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam and unleashed all the potential in this country."

How about a more accurate appraisal:
Mr. Obama, your administration's ambition has focused on reining in America's imagination and burdening American ambition with unnecessary rules and regulations designed to cripple American potential to do anything that is at odds with your administration's ideology and goals.

Rick Ballard

"I'm in favor of a Truman Committee, similar to his investigation of the war effort."

SBW,

I'm not sure that would work. I'm thinking more about the wholesale thefts by the solar frauds than about the wholesale theft committed by the Education Department in making 'student loans' as a means of redistribution but the means used for the theft may be just as legal as Jon Corzine having all the cash vacuumed out of MF Global clients accounts in order to satisfy the claims of what purport to be senior debtors.

President Obama's theft in favor of George Kaiser and many others may have been completely legal. It was clearly misfeasance and certainly malfeasance, it involves a level of corruption that certainly makes President Clinton green with envy but it is very difficult to find a specific act that was demonstrably illegal. It is not illegal for Nobel laureate Stephen Chu to do stupid things at BOzo's behest.

It's more likely that actual illegality can be found in the redistribution efforts of the Education Department but again, it will be misfeasance and malfeasance on the part of the Educrats with the actual fraud practiced by the recipients.

Charlie (Colorado)

Of course Jeff Goldstein did that several years back.

And, since a drama queen English major can manage, it clearly requires little effort.

Charlie (Colorado)

HB sbw!! Enjoy a good book.

Rick- Would it make any difference to your analysis to know students "disillusioned with false promises about big rewards for working hard and might become critics of the system" was part of a long term plan to undermine the capitalist ideology? Both K-12 and ihe?

I feel sorry for the students but they knew they were learning little and these degrees were not marketable. Special contempt in our story of corruption for both K-12 and ihe will end up going to the admin class. Parasites with too little knowledge or insight to recognize their behaviors put the host at risk. Economic pies are not self-sustaining even if no one told the credentialed educrats.

Porch- Gullett Elem. Know where it is?

Generally the meaning of "we" is derived from context. What is your point Charlie?

He's the proprietor of Protein Wisdom. He had a plague of Dana a few years ago and apparently also tracked him down.

"Who should recall that, when we got pissed off enough, we required little effort to track down Dana."

My brother from another mother!

Gmax

Didnt Don Quixote do that? No, now that I think about it, it was tilting at windmills. How does a windbag topple a giant anywho?

boris

IIRC Dana actually has a windmill (or had one, maybe he toppled it).

Gmax

Didnt Dana calm down a few days later after the panicky outburst where he gave up the game and try to deny he was Professor of the Toads - Dana Ward, master of very little?

Third rate professor at a backwater fourth rate college?

Danube of Thought

Thanks for the link, RB; another good one, C.

Hats off to Jeff Goldstein. Google "Semanti*leo" and enjoy the show. Someone should compile a list of the giants Dana has toppled.

Gmax

Boris I believe that the 2nd former Mrs. Ward is now the proud owner of that windmill. Dana is consigned to a flop house in the student ghetto these days, and his kids wont even return phone calls.

boris

'when I said "we" figured it out I'm hardly taking credit'

Never said or implied different. It occurs to me that Charlie may think I wrote the sockmock at 11:09 AM. Not so, I have never done the sock thing with anyone (yet). Although I did write the TJ at 11:18 AM.

Thinnest book in the library: List of Giants toppled

MarkO

What I like most about Newt (except his eye which was used by permission in Macbeth), is that he always slams the MSM for its incredible bias and false reporting. Scott Pelly is a bona fide sloganeer for the Obama Administration who clearly derives his understanding of the law from someone's vague notions. He does mirror, to a great degree, however, the false notions of "law" articulated, but not followed, by the Obama administration. This is, for me, quite enchanting. The Republicans need to do more of this when then are on the MSM. Otherwise, what's the point?

More of this from everyone.

"I feel sorry for the students but they knew they were learning little and these degrees were not marketable. Special contempt in our story of corruption for both K-12 and ihe will end up going to the admin class."

RSE,

I don't understand the feeling of sympathy for the prey. They were not compelled to purchase serf's collars and their inability to recognize the administrators as the pack of jackals tasked with finding prey too dumb to recognize debt slavery becomes an argument that the weight of their serf's collar is the best education they can hope for.

I favor transfer of ultimate responsibility for the serf's debt to the colleges. That's the fastest way to clean out the administrator jackal pack.

Speaking of PW and Goldstein

"He's the proprietor of Protein Wisdom. He had a plague of Dana a few years ago and apparently also tracked him down."

Why are we still plagued by Capt. Carp? He should be gearing up for next semester's class on anarchy--the only class scheduled this year. The Occukids are chanting and drumming already for some extra credit.

The Cleo sockpuppet does an excellent imitation btw.

rse

I am not sympathetic to the prey who were after all borrowing for living expenses to boot. But this has also been a knowing trap.

AACU is front and center in the betrayal of trust dept as well as the accreditors. Basically you must radicalize to be a preferred member of the club in good standing. Without pointing out that nexus to the indebted students or their parents.

It's not capitalism that can't be trusted despite all that expensive rhetoric to the contrary. It's the institutions that have been systematically subverted.

Frau Genug-ist-genug

Rick, the students have been fed this pap since elementary school and have been told to avoid work in the corporate arena. My granddaughters in WA proclaim global AGW is real and work for an NGO is the only way to go. The goal is everyone on the govt. payroll. As Shirley Sherrod told folks, the govt. cannot fire you. Isn't everyone today a winner?

Who said legal briefs need to be boring? Take a look at the initial paragraph of the Summary of Argument of the LUNed brief (an amicus curiae brief filed with SCOTUS on ObamaCare), and see how camels and hockey sticks are woven into an argument on the limits of the Spending Clause of the US Constitution.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

At least BF has taken deriding Gene Simmons off the table...

You could do alot worse than listen to Gene Simmons. A self-made multi-multi-multi-millionaire with a world-wide marketing company.

This is from Wiki, but I've heard him in interviews voice the same sentiments:

Simmons was a supporter of the foreign policy of the George W. Bush administration.[7] He supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq, writing on his website: "I'm ashamed to be surrounded by people calling themselves liberal who are, in my opinion, spitting on the graves of brave American soldiers who gave their life to fight a war that wasn't theirs...in a country they've never been to... simply to liberate the people therein".[8] In a follow-up, Simmons explained his position and wrote about his love and support for the United States: "I wasn't born here. But I have a love for this country and its people that knows no bounds. I will forever be grateful to America for going into World War II, when it had nothing to gain, in a country that was far away... and rescued my mother from the Nazi German concentration camps. She is alive and I am alive because of America. And, if you have a problem with America, you have a problem with me".
MarkO

This makes me laugh out loud. And, forever question anything Will writes. If he doesn’t understand this criticism, what could he understand?

On Friday, Politico’s Ben Smith reported that George Will’s wife, Mari Maseng, started working for Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential campaign, with the goal of improving his debating skills.
Will chalked up any criticism as coming from the “less mature members of the Romney campaign” and noted a recent amicable encounter between his wife and Romney.

Army of Davids

Worth keeping in mind per smears on Cain.

Smears on Rubio and Perry should be looked at in the same light. The attempt by Obama/Axelrod/Democrats/media is to marginalize conservatives/libertarians/GOP circles along racial lines.

Beatings of conservatives like Kenneth Gladney.

Star Parker speaks well on these points....and it is important to realize that attacking female and particularly minority
conservatives is standard operating procedure for the left.

Incongruent behavior obviously shouldn't be tolerated. But...as unpleasant as it may be..... smear campaigns driven by political operatives and push journolism need to be seen for what they really are and should be addressed aggressively.

We are going to see more smear campaigns this year. May as well get used to it. Not supporting Cain/Rubio for qualititative reasons is whole different matter than staying silent when political operatives and the media orchestrate a hit.

In the fullness of time.... w/ demographic shifts.... minority representation needs to be nurtured and protected w/in conservative circles.

Frau Genug-ist-genug

Via PW, a commenter cites this from St. Mary's High School in Denver:

"From further down the catalog, filed under US Government and Politics:

Most importantly, we will learn how to pressure the American political system in an effort to change the rules so that they work better for all of us."

What happened to elections?

Its nature curriculum was held out as an exemplary means for the Neo-Marxist to move beyond critical pedagogy to "Concern for the knowledge that primal peoples have regarding ecological relationships and technologies that our consistent with the view that we humans cannot survive independent of our habitat, that our freedom and progress is dependent on the larger biotic community of which we are a part".

Which is why Frau's granddaughters cannot hear, It's emotional and instinctual now.

And why the planners do not care if "it's cooling folks".

Control and a means to a sanctioned looting-that's all that matters.

Rick Ballard

"It's emotional and instinctual now."

It's emotional but I believe that habitual is more appropriate than instinctual. The indoctrination process is contra-instinctual in nature because it is contra-survival (except for the top level predators).

Is there any reason not to use child rapist Sandusky and the Penn State cover up as being illustrative of the entire educracy as a [w]hole? Clarice did a great job today. I'd like to see something similar in the hands of every school board and PTA in the country. Every parent in America should be visualizing little Johnny heading off to the shower room with Sandusky every morning when Johnny leaves for our Brave New World with the Lord of the Flies.

JM Hanes

While reading your terrific Sunday column, I had a sudden flashback in re Vann Van Diepen, the "National Intelligence Officer for Weapons of Mass Destruction and Proliferation." That was Valerie Plame's putative area of expertise: too, no?

According to current and former intelligence officials, Plame Wilson, who worked on the clandestine side of the CIA in the Directorate of Operations as a non-official cover (NOC) officer, was part of an operation tracking distribution and acquisition of weapons of mass destruction technology to and from Iran.

Alas, the three stooges were already reaping their unjust rewards under the Bush Administration. Fingar, in particular, stands out in my own recollections. I was astonished when John Negroponte, as newly created DNI, brought him in as one of his chief Deputy Directors (for Analysis!).

Funny that Armitage is the one being cited for calling out the bullshit, although I seem to recall some sort of falling out over at State. In hindsight, I think we may have been so shocked about Colin Powell's perfidious role in covering up his henchman's culpability during the Libby trial, that we never really sussed out the true measure of his own backstabbing game. I've always thought he travelled less than any other Secretary of State (and dropped so many international balls) because he was so deeply embroiled in DC back room politics that he was afraid to leave town.

Powell was at the top of the heap at State who believed that "that diplomacy, not confrontation and belligerence, would best address the threat from Iran’s nuclear program," and Fingar was one of the primary attack dogs who went after John Bolton. I vaguely, possibly erroneously, associate Fingar with the whole Mary McCarthy crowd over at the CIA too. I'm not sure whether I'm just lumping all the anti-Bush gunslingers together, or whether maybe they had some extra-government connection with one of those lefty think tanks?

In any case, this tidbit registered on my irony meter, after your Penn State intro. Guess who sits on its School of International Affairs Advisory Board? None other than Fingar & Plame!

Porchlight

rse, good grief.

Thank goodness Texas' curriculum isn't (wholly) in the hands of these idiots. It must just kill them to have standardized testing of any sort.

Mind you, he came up with that ditty, after the '53 riots in East Germany, but that has much older roots, going back to the philosopher Kings, and Lenin's refinement of Marx, to institute the Vanguard, because the proles won't figure things out on their own,

Army of Davids

threadkiller,

Rubio has addressed those attacks. But it was the Univision hit on Rubio's brother in law that holds the clues as to where this is going.

Keep in mind Rubio who is behind the smear attacks on Rubio, the timing and what they hope to accomplish.

At the time InTrades on Rubio being VP were around 35%. Putting more of the Latino vote in play is a definitive fear of Obama/Democrats.

They don't hold the same fear of Mitch Daniels as VP.

narciso

Armitage, has many faults, ingratitude toward Libby, when the latter bailed him out of the 'two minute hate' the Perotistas and the Christics, had staged for him, but he readily
admitted that Valerie kept mucking up his INR
section, not that their goals weren't congruent.

henry

With the big recall fun scheduled to start on Tuesday, the teachers union (WEAC) put out a report saying the collective bargaining law hurts children. This is a classic case of improperly using statistics to hide the salient variable. Most, but not all, school districts are union contact free and used this freedom to add teachers and programs. Some, notably Milwaukee Public Schools, extended teachers contracts while the Madison fun was ongoing. Anyone who wants to know if the Walker changes help or hurt would separate the two groups on this variable and compare results for significance. Neither the union nor the press have done so. -- they prefer to let the huge problems of MPS (half of teacher layoffs statewide) bury the actual results. So typical.

It's an understandable mistake to make, JM,
in the LUN. They are not in the same diagram. Mary McCarthy is the one who is supposed to be Joan Allen's character in the Bourne films

JM Hanes

Guess what? Thomas Fingar has written a book! He sounds like the product of a community organizing SWOT seminar:

Reducing Uncertainty describes what Intelligence Community analysts do, how they do it, and how they are affected by the political context that shapes, uses, and sometimes abuses their output. In particular, it looks at why IC analysts pay more attention to threats than to opportunities, and why they appear to focus more on warning about the possibility of "bad things" happening than on providing the input necessary for increasing the likelihood of positive outcomes.

The book is intended to increase public understanding of what IC analysts do, to elicit more relevant and constructive suggestions for improvement from outside the Intelligence Community, to stimulate innovation and collaboration among analysts at all grade levels in all agencies, and to provide a core resource for students of intelligence. The most valuable aspect of this book is the in-depth discussion of National Intelligence Estimates—what they are, what it means to say that they represent the "most authoritative judgments of the Intelligence Community," why and how they are important, and why they have such high political salience and symbolic importance.

The final chapter lays out, from an insider's perspective, the story of the flawed Iraq WMD NIE and its impact on the subsequent Iran nuclear NIE—paying particular attention to the heightened political scrutiny the latter received in Congress following the Iraq NIE debacle.

My outsider idea is charging the "Intelligence Community" with gathering intelligence, not "strategic planning." Ditto for the press, where we could use a lot more gumshoe reporting and a lot less "journalism."

Curiosity may finally get the better of me, but Reducing Uncertainty is the kind of book I buy secondhand, so that the author doesn't get any of the money. Now if Porter Goss wrote a tell-all, I'd buy it new. I've never understood why GWB cut him off at the knees, but I'm afraid that might be another Omelos story.

MarkO

Of course, the Bourne films have nothing at all to do with the wonderful books.

Porchlight

Yay JimRhoads and Cap'n! I love reading about JOM meeetups.

I knew that but was afraid it was a bit off track though the title is quite ironic given that his actions certainly increased, rather than decreased uncertainty, didn't they?
What is is about international affairs that it seems to attract at the top levels the biggest idiots?

I noted the irony of that title, henceforth, I describe what he did to the intelligence
community, as 'giving the Fingar'
