Well, the way the implications of his first term foreign policy are starting to escalate, he may have less leverage in a few months than now. The chances of a "can't be swept under the rug" incident are increasing.

North Africa is a big powder keg. With lots of deadly weapons that came from us.

Plus the Algerians evidently do not feel that they need to run any of their "overseas contingency plans" through the Reset Button Operator.

I don't understand why the House can't refuse to fund anything until a budget is passed.

pagar

Jane, I agree.

Cecil Turner

The general rule is: From a single house of Congress you can resist but you cannot impose.

Charles K is missing a big point here. There is no general rule, it applies differently. The Democrats own the propaganda arm of the government, and will lose any PR war. Moreover, the GOP has convinced itself it lost a referendum in the last election (despite a razor-thin margin for the Executive, and the balance of power shifting not one whit), and needs to dig deep to see if it can find a pair.

I don't understand why the House can't refuse to fund anything until a budget is passed.

Because we are running on continuing resolutions, the only option is to refuse to pass one, which would result in a government shutdown. The talking heads are right about that one: it's a loser.

Cecil Turner

errata: "The Democrats own the propaganda arm of the government, and **the GOP** will lose any PR war."

James D.

I don't undderstand this strategy. Why will the GOP be in a better position, PR-wise, in mid-April?

The MSM isn't going to call out the Dems when Harry Reid hasn't passed a budget. They'll keep playing stenographer for the Dems and hammering the Reps regardless. We're always going ti be vlamed, so we might as well do whatever's in our power and dig in and fight for a change.

Shut the whole damn thing down.

squaredance

No, they caved as they always do. At every turn we here "See this a actually a strategic victory--we will stand our ground on XXX".

When XXX comes we hear the same thing.

The GOP will not hold the house. It will be stolen from them. They might as well go out honorably.

It could be that they have been threatened somehow. It certainly looks like they got to Chief Justice Roberts.

Whatever the case may be, they have opted to save their own behinds, and the country be damned.

I think Dr K is right. I also think James Lewis has raised a provocative but credible thesis--that the Mavi incident was a joint Turkish-CIA op, orchestrated by Brennan working with Ayres, Dohrn and Code Pink.http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/01/dangerous_times_john_brennans_black_ops.html

rse

clarice's link is a powerful piece.

When I hear Brennan's name I hear his Al-Quds remark. I had never heard Jerusalem called that until then.

Yesterday I was reading documents relating to the creation of those performance assessments that got funded to the tune of more than$450 million, not counting the Gates money. Over and over again the term "circumscribe" was used in the reviewing document. As in limiting what anyone may know.

In order to gain political control and toleration for fundamental Transformation, our young people will not be capable of the kind of resistance Lewis contemplates should it be necessary. People as nothing more than portfolios of experiences rearranging themselves in their daily activities might sound just fine if you have lived your adult life at taxpayer expense and deplore the evil market system. But it will leave us with highly emotional, ignorant masses with great expectations of what should be done for them.

And that cauldron of hatred outside our borders will just keep boiling. And that seems to be the best case.

I'm recalling that the last time, a similar circumstance obtained was in the early 80s, the Dems held the House, and they were able to 'circumscribe' Reagan's budgetary authority, and limit his foreign policy initiatives, so that Iran Contra seemed a viable option,

Captain Hate

Exactly narc; what you're seeing every time the House punts the ball to the Senate is a failure of Boehner to lead. For all of Pelosi's faults, she knows how to geld the blue dogs into doing exactly what she wants them to do. Meanwhile Boehner can't go five minutes without jonesing for a cigarette so he can't stay on message to get anybody to do anything; secure in the knowledge that Malor and Poppin' Fresh will take him off the hook by blaming "the extreme right" for his shortcomings.

The image below[at the link] is taken from that census which list Harry Bounel and also shows he was born in 1890. That is the same year connected to Obama's social security number. It's also reported Bounel lived in Connecticut at one point. Obama's social security number is a number reserved for CT applicants."

Sounds intriguing.

"We see Bounel residing in CT in 1910. The Social Security was issued in 1977 in CT. He was 87 at that time. There was a hospital next to Newton. It was a Newtown psychiatric hospital, where some elderly without family resided their last days. The hospital later was renamed to Fairfield state hospital. This is where the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims were taken for autopsy. What is interesting, is that the hospital contained not only death records, it also for some reason contained immigration and deportation records. My guess is, that most of the info was scrubbed, however these people are sloppy. They did not flatten the PDF file and we got direct connection between Obama and this Ct SSN 042-68-4425 straight from the horses mouth, from the Squatter in Chief Obama. [...]"

The GOP has finally come out in the open as to just what their principles are--or, rather, the lack of them. Few seem to notice this.

This has to be what all these political games are about on the democrat side: expose the GOP to their base.

If they do not start standing up for the Party soon, they will be a permanet minority party. It looks to me like this is what the GOP wants, or at least will settle for.

We are quickly moving beyond politics. The pace is amazing.

Do not tell me the GOP is this stupid. No national Party is.

You do not have to go back to the Reagan years so find a situation like this. Just look at Pelosi. The GOP just does not have the stones to fight. They are not men.

They do seem to be adopting a historical model, that has rarely worked, Rove was excusing Christie's odious attack on the NRA, just because.

Earl Weaver RIP

The most entertaining manager I've ever watched and proof that you could be good and funny. He lived long enough to see the Orioles become good again.

narciso

Heck of a track record;

During his tenure as big-league skipper, the Orioles won six Eastern Division titles, four American League pennants, and a World Series championship. Weaver's managerial record is 1,480–1,060 (.583), including 100+ win seasons in 1969 (109), 1970 (108), 1971 (101), 1979 (102), and 1980 (100). He only had one losing season in his managerial career, with the 1986 Orioles.

Jack is Back

He was on an Oriole Fantasy Cruise in the Carib. He was like the Mickey Rooney of baseball - small, feisty, funny and dramatic. So many great players on those teams.

rse

narciso-ibd is right on the money.

I am off reading blueprints again on this chilly morning and I just wrote in the margin of the book I am reading about using education to design social futures that these adults who have always lived at state expense simply assume that bread will get to the table whatever they do. That there will always be a certain pot of money ready to take care of everyone just because they are alive. While they are determined to shut down the only economic system that can consistently create surplus to take care of those who just exist and cannot be productive. Yet for political purposes the profs are determined to hobble anyone who is productive and to hamper all features of productivity.

All to pretend that's how we get to a Quality of Life for All. It reads like plans to suspend gravity because the ability to fly would be so nurturing to self esteem.

New meme of the day: The Second Amendment was enacted to protect the institution of slavery.

Captain Hate

One of Earl's funniest moments was at Cleveland Municipal Stadium. The Tribe had a runner on first and somebody laid down a terrible bunt that the catcher could have doubtlessly turned into a double play except the batter stood in the catcher's way in a clear case of obstruction which went uncalled. Earl went out to complain to no avail. He went back to the dugout and came back out with the rule book, emphatically gesturing at a page which I guess gave the definition of "obstruction". The umps, not liking being shown up like this, gave him the thumb immediately; at which point he tore up the rule book and threw the shreds around the infield. The crowd was roaring with half booing him and the other half laughing. Anybody that was there will remember that far longer than they will a usual humdrum game.

maryrose

Chicago:
Bed-bug capitol of the world!
Had dinner last night with my sisters and sisters-in-law. We get together once a month. All agreed a second Inauguration is wasted money and gratuitous. Why not take the donations, pay down our debt and have a private ceremony.
At present Obama is feeling his oats. That won't last. 49% approval in Gallup today. It is all downhill from here on out. I guess his I'm tough on guns ploy didn't work.

Obama's new smart diplomacy consists of Americans being killed and being taken hostage.

New meme of the day: The Second Amendment was enacted to protect the institution of slavery.

That's what you get for hiring brain scientist Danny Glover as guest speaker. My favorite bit:

Altendorf also defended the school’s decision to host those controversial speakers with university resources.

“We didn’t feel those speakers you are referring to are bad decisions on these topics because we want to foster discussion,” he said.
Unfortunately the discussion mostly went something like: "what a maroon."

matt

Apparently General Mattis at CENTCOM is being forced out because the Administration doesn't like his answers on Iran. That makes McKiernan, McChrystal, Petraeus, Zinni, Ham (AFRICOM), and several others now purged.

The Pentagon is beginning to resemble the OKW ca. 1942 or the STAVKA ca. 1941. Dempsey is a suck and Casey was worse than useless.

If the second amendment was enacted to protect slavery then the Dems have no other moral choice than to spend the next few years attempting to repeal it, right?
I'd say it's a horse race to see if the Equal Rights Amendment is passed before the 2nd Amendment is repealed.

Of course the Dems learned their lesson on the ERA; just wait for the SCOTUS to pass or repeal amendments judicially.

After the way Clinton played Gingrich and the way the 2011 debt ceiling was raised there was never ANY chance it would not be raised this time.

Reason magazine ("Gun Control: White Man's Law"):

Chances are that you've never heard of General Laney. He hasn't had a brilliant military career, at least as far as I know. In fact, I'm not certain that he's even served in the military. General, you see, isn't Laney's rank. General is Laney's first name. General Laney does, however, have a claim to fame, unrecognized though it may be.

Detroit resident General Laney is the founder and prime mover behind a little publicized organization known as the National Black Sportsman's Association, often referred to as "the black gun lobby." Laney pulls no punches when asked his opinion of gun control: "Gun control is really race control. People who embrace gun control are really racists in nature. All gun laws have been enacted to control certain classes of people, mainly black people, but the same laws used to control blacks are being used to disarm white people as well."

From the same piece, re New York's Sullivan Act:

Rather than trying to keep handguns out of the price range that blacks and the poor could afford, New York's trend-setting Sullivan Law, enacted in 1911, required a police permit for legal possession of a handgun. This law made it possible for the police to screen applicants for permits to posses handguns, and while such a requirement may seem reasonable, it can and has been abused.

Members of groups not in favor with the political establishment or the police are automatically suspect and can easily be denied permits. For instance, when the Sullivan Law was enacted, southern and eastern European immigrants were considered racially inferior and religiously and ideologically suspect. (Many were Catholics or Jews, and a disproportionate number were anarchists or socialists.) Professor L. Kennett, coauthor of the authoritative history The Gun in America, has noted that the measure was designed to "strike hardest at the foreign-born element," particularly Italians. Southern and eastern European immigrants found it almost impossible to obtain gun permits.

First story on Algeria I read to day closes this way:

Chabane, who worked in food services, said he bolted out the window and was hiding when he heard the militants speaking among themselves with Libyan, Egyptian and Tunisian accents. At one point, he said, they caught a Briton.

"They threatened him until he called out in English to his friends, telling them, `Come out, come out. They're not going to kill you. They're looking for the Americans,'" Chabane said.

"A few minutes later, they blew him away."

This story tells us Huge wood bison may finally range freely in Alaska again

The big males, at over 6 feet tall and more than 2000 lbs, are bigger than their lower 48 bison cousins. According to the story, they went extinct up here over 100 years ago, possibly due to climate change, but they survived in Canada as an Endangered Species.

Previous attempts to reintroduce them were squelched according to the story, because as Endangered Species they would limit business and developers, but now Fish And Wildlife has invented new definitions to get around that problem:

The workaround Fish and Wildlife came up with is to designate wood bison as a “nonessential experimental population” in Alaska, meaning the animals are not considered crucial to the overall survival of the species...This strategy brings with it a second plus for resource development-minded Alaskans: Critical habitat for the wood bison cannot be designated.

Oh give me the tundra

Obama is the first president since Ike to win two elections with >51% of the vote. Please stay in reality land.

squaredance: I don't want to break this to you -- but republicans lost the popular vote in the house by over a million votes. They only "kept the house" because they rigged the system (gerrymandered). Congress is extremely unpopular right now btw, thanks to the GOP.


ITs amazing how you guys don't know basic facts. BTW, lets look at your party's great record of governing:

Republican Congress Ability to Govern:
1.) 2011 Debt Ceiling Fiasco
2.) 2012 Fiscal Cliff Fiasco
3.) Sandy Relief Fiasco
4.) Threatening to default the country in 2013
5.) Couldn't pass a bill on Disability rights due to vast UN conspiracy theories

Possible snag for Republicans' no-pay budget plan

As part of a proposal to raise the debt limit for three months, the House GOP would suspend pay for members of Congress unless both the House and the Senate pass a budget blueprint for the next fiscal year.

[snip]

The problem is that immediately withholding pay from lawmakers may be unconstitutional. The 27th amendment states no law changing compensation for members of the House or the Senate can take effect until after the next House election. That means a law, even if it were to clear the Democratic-controlled Senate, which is a long shot, could not be used to withhold pay for almost two years.
