HAPPY BIRTHDAY HENRY!!!

Ignatz

Eric Holder did not hear about nor was aware of the claim that 530 people had been charged in cases involving $1 billion until several months after he said it.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Henry-- Happpy Birthday!

Thomas Collins

Happy Birthday to henry and TexasIsHeaven!

Thomas Collins

Well, I am just thankful that on rare occasion this Administration recognizes that it operates in the real world of international skullduggery, not the fantasy world of the classroom of the the Peace Studies tenured professor at Diversity U.

Danube on iPad

Happy birthday to TIH and Henry.

Ignatz

According to this CNN story, the plane had enough fuel to fly 2500 miles which is ~4 hours flight time.
That makes a pretty good case for a possible Payne Stewart event.

James D.

Happy birthday, Henry!

James D.

TC, I think that's an optimistic interpretation.

I think it's a lot more likely that there's a specific reason for this - God knows what it might be, but it's surely not about protecting American military or intelligence personnel or recognizing the need for projecting American military power abroad.

Ignatz

Happy Birthday

NK(withnewsoftware)

Ignatz-- but how does slow accidental loss of cabin pressure explain the apparent deliberate deactivation of the Transponder and then communication gear?

Threadkiller

Assuming the plane didn't go into the drink shortly after the transponder went off*, all the analysis points to the world having large corridors where unchecked air traffic can do as it pleases.

*my theory is the plane went down right where it was believed to have gone down. The eyewitness account, the oil slick, and the sat photos China 'mistakenly' released are probably the reality.

The Malaysian govt knows that the plane went down due to Islam and they are scared shitless that they will permanently damage their relationships with their trade partners due to their relaxed posture on the travel affairs of young middle eastern males.

Or not.

NK(withnewsoftware)

TK-- that is as good a guess as any. The ChiComs would also have an interest in keeping quiet any Jihadi attack on China by jetliner, they had that Jihadi mass murder by knifing last week.

Not that I think that's where it is.

Only a little more fuel than reported and it could have made it to Southern Iran.

The NYT must not have had enough pixels to include coverage of the phony deportation numbers generated by DHS or the specious BOzocare signup numbers.

Happiest of birthdays to you, Henry. (Already sent wishes to TexasIsHeaven.)

I can't figure out if I read this here. If so, my apologies:

How the Global Warming Scare Began


A great scientist named Roger Revelle had Al Gore in his class at
Harvard and the Global Warming campaign was born. Revelle tried to
calm things down years later, but Gore said Revelle was Senile and
refused to debate. John Coleman documents the entire story and shows
how our tax dollars are perpetuating the Global Warming alarmist
campaign even though temperatures have not risen in years and years.

I love a little honest humor early in the morning (well, it is still early here on the Left Coast).

USS Reagan vs. USS Obama

Too true to be too funny, though.

Happy Birthday to our Pisces!

And to counteract the ridiculous pics of men's underwear currently onscreen, here are nicer Italian men's wear in the Seychelles.

HB henry and TIH. Henry, I trust some fine home brewed beverages are planned.

I have a new post up. http://www.invisibleserfscollar.com/evolution-to-a-holos-consciousness-is-certainly-not-my-idea-of-education-reform-is-it-yours/

In it I track the actual planned documentable classroom changes and show how it dovetails with what the Club of Budapest seeks. And I mean dovetail as in the finest furniture Duncan Phyfe ever produced. Macroshift fits so well with the planned implementation that it alsmot hurts.

What a pleasant day for a birthday, Henry and TIH!

Happy birthday Henry and happy birthday a 2nd time to Texas is Heaven.

One of 'em snitched the plane as a keepsake.  Oh will he be in trouble.

Jane, the aliens who inoculated Earth with DNA have had their funding run out.

Happy Birthday to Henry and TexasinHeaven!! Felicidades en tu dia!

Thomas Collins

CH, forgive me for being cynical about ZuckerSnot, but I suspect what has his briefs in a bunch is the idea that the NSA is another competitor in the race to lock up all metadata in the world.

Thomas Collins

Actually, if my metadats is going to available to someone, I'd rather it be available to an NSA spook than to ZuckerSnot or DoEvilWhenYouWant Brin or Jobs' successors.

Happy Happy Henry and TexasIsHeaven (Oh to be 37 again)!

Happy Birthday to Henry.
Happy Birthday to Texas is Heaven.
Happy Belated Birthday to the Wonder Boy and Girl and anyone else I Missed.

--DoEvilWhenYouWant Brin--

Heh.

TexasIsHeaven

Thanks so much ya'll! I feel loved and appreciated and wanted.

Seriously, I love this this place. I have learned so much from everyone here and I am thankful to all of you. It is a wonderful blessing to be with so many who love our country and appreciate what it means to be an American and to be born in Texas.

TC,

The Fecesbook metadata proved insufficient in FL-13. ZuckerSnot's moment of glory has already passed, as has his company's utility within reality.

He's gonna make it to fraud charges before he vanishes.

Seriously though....over-to-top mocking needs to begin in earnest. 24-7-365 loud & proud mocking of the climate kooks & their enablers.

Since I did it for henry, here's one for TIH;
Happy birthday

Sydney Morning Herald:

"Police investigating the backgrounds of all 239 people aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight are paying 'special attention' to a 35 year-old Chinese Uighur man who undertook flight simulation training, according to a report in a leading Malay language newspaper in Kuala Lumpur."

Is that J Fred?

Off to the Motor City. Let's hope the pilot doesn't have other ideas.

Ignatz

Is that J Fredd?

Ignatz

Grrrr

Major meme missing over mystical marine.

J, they thought what they did to the Cooch, they Jolly well could do in Florida.

Ignatz

If that Uighur was a tall leggy blonde he should have had no problem accessing the cockpit.

Iggy,

Blue bonnets always make me think of bad. Tomorrow is 5 years since she died.

Bori

Can't remember if anyone mentioned Noonan's article in the WSJ but I love her ending paragraph.

Not being George W. Bush is not a foreign policy. Not invading countries is not a foreign policy. Wishing to demonstrate your sophistication by announcing you are unencumbered by the false historical narratives of the past is not a foreign policy. Assuming the world will be nice if we're not militarist is not a foreign policy.

What is our foreign policy? Disliking global warming?

Of course, the answer is Hope for Change.

Pakistan if they're Sunni.

Great Heavens, I scan Wiki for Uyghur and can't determine if the Turban-Headed are Shia or Sunni. I suspect Shia, but will look more.

DrJ

Off.

Holy Moly Mother of Gaia.

Predominantly Sunni.

Thomas Collins

The article linked in lyle's 12:32 PM post mentions that CNN and MSNBC are possible landing spots for Carney. So Carney will continue to have a job as Obama spokesman, but will be Obamaspeaking from a different perch.

Jane

Tomorrow is 5 years since she died.

Doesn't that make it Porch's birthday too?

Sue,
I thought of her too when I posted that and almost said something. If I had known how close it was to the day she died I would have.

Old Lurker

I too thought of Bad with that picture.

Five years! Wow time flies.

HB TiH.

HB Henry.

Ignatz

Mark Steyn ups the ante on Mann.
His counterclaims are clearly not sustainable legally so I hope they do not reduce his chances of a significant victory by pissing the judge off.

Hit says 4 years. I not 5. He's younger. I'll go with his memory, not mine.

Jane:

Everybody all tryin' to steal my thunder and everything all the time.

Yes, you are correct -- but did you know it's also the day before ________'s and ________'s birthday too? And two days before ________'s birthday as well?

And that Old Macdonald was a really bad speller...

Deep thoughs:

http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2014/03/why-its-so-hard-for-obama-to-be-tough-on-russia/284394/

Even if you're charitably inclined to politely agree or disagree with this guy's premise, a quick scroll to the bottom will elicit a hearty derisive snort and remind you how hilariously out of touch the credentialed morons are.

Sue

I don't even know what I was trying to say...I not 5 is a true statement but I don't think it's where I was going.

Ignatz

You mean this hilarity lyle?

Obama and his secretary of state, the formidable John Kerry....

Jack is Back

Happy Birthday to TIH and Henry.

Here, Henry runs for President.

Captain Hate

He's gonna make it to fraud charges before he vanishes.

I guess that's the only thing I could live with that would defer his permanent disappearance.

Ignatz

One tiny murky diamond suggests to scientists that the earth's mantle contains potentially more water than all the oceans.
Just in time for the CA drought.
Now, I wonder what it costs to drill a 300 mile deep well.

henry

That's a typo Ignatz. He meant "formaldehyde-able".

Thanks for the good wishes. Its a nice day outside, maybe time to go play hooky.

rich@gmu

Happy Birthday Henry. Hope you thaw out!!!

Dave (in MA)

He's a formidable challenge to the cosmetic surgery industry.

lyle

That's it, Ig.

But observing Kerry's mien these days, I'm inclined to believe henry's theory.

Dave (in MA)

Lyle, all I had to do was see "theatlantic" in the link and out came the derisive snort.

Account Deleted

Lyle,

If I had a favorites folder for 'worst articles written about Ukraine', the Atlantic piece would merit a place. He's really plumbing the abyssal depths of credentialed morony. The EUnuchs very bad gas problem has absolutely no short term solution. If the Russian Repoman turns off the tap, EUtopia (ex France) will be reading by candle light. It's true Gazprom would take a tremendous revenue hit but governments would fall all over EUtopia and the charade would be at an end.

lyle

But, but, but, Rick...John Kerry!

--Ignatz-- but how does slow accidental loss of cabin pressure explain the apparent deliberate deactivation of the Transponder and then communication gear?--

Hypoxia symptoms (caused by lack of oxygen pressure) affects people in different ways. Some act like drunks, some get prickly skin sensations, some just numb out prior to passing out. There are some statistics on the time of useful consciousness given other parameters.

If this was the situation onboard the aircraft, one of the pilots could have reacted in a stupor by turning off various switches but I think this would be way down on my list of probabilities.

Bori

"He's a formidable challenge to the cosmetic surgery industry."

Dave that battle has been fought and lost already.

Interesting though, that whether the author meant to or not, he is signalling how weak and laughable our President is. Especially when the formidable one is Kerry.

Jane

Hit,

Marchers rule! How many Pisces are there among us? Too many would be scary.

on dropping the mortgage fraud prosecutions they would probably hurt dems to badly so they were quietly dropped.

Sue

TK,

I stopped reading when it said she used her divorce papers to let Soetero adopt Obama. Those papers did not terminate his parental rights for someone else to adopt his child.

Bori

Schumer needs action now, before they lose control of the Senate but all this blustering is not going to get it done.

narciso

Happy birthday, Henry, yes that Ornstein piece was snorfleready, we've already outlined why the Syria deal was bad, I mean an average Bond villain, could figure out how to game it, that Nikita reboot was full of Russian oligarchs/siloviki, one Tarasov,
played by the very unrussian looking Peter Outerbridge, the Iran deal like where the Russians are putting up two new reactors next to the main one in Bushehr, as for the Great Game, some like Soylent who's been there where Watson caught the jezail round,
this was before the surge, Volodya's in no mood to do us any favors,

Ignatz

That was an impressive slate of candidates JiB, including HCOAB.
Could 2014 be a hotbikechick wave election?

narciso

Even if he wanted to, Volodya's a little like Branagh's scenery chewing oligarch in that Jack Ryan film, that came and went.

Jack is Back

Now the Indonesian Air Force is saying that their radar on Aceh, north Sumatra did not pick up an indication of a plane crossing into the Straits from the east out of Malaysia. Its radar has a range of 445miles enough to reach Penang.

Link

When the Malaysian authorities finish searching the pilot's flight simulatior it will be interesting to see if any recordings exist of him practicing low-level flying.

Threadkiller

Read on.

Happy birthday to henry and TexasIsHeaven!

Hannah Allam, who my fishwrap had reporting on Iraq, with all the finesse, they are given to; has a few tweets, re how Lavrov is hog tieing Lurch and he doesn't even know it, (re the Interpreter)

Sue

Nope. If there is something early on that is so false even a paralegal can spot it, I'm not wasting my time.

narciso

Therein lies the rub, unless they are using some new fangled stealth technology, there should be a radar signature, somewhere in that track

lyle

Could 2014 be a hotbikechick wave election?

Fingers crossed!

Captain Hate

With Lurch it's always a question of ineptitude versus being a traitor. They aren't mutually exclusive.

Narciso,

It still comes down to a test of will between a thug and a punk, with the punk never having exhibited any skill outside of collecting a group of pimps willing to overlook his manifest defects in order to keep their whorehouse open for business.

Sure, the thug is bluffing and could be stopped with a hard punch to the nose. The punk isn't up to even trying to throw one and his worldwide pimp support group isn't either.

narciso

Yes, Volodya is playing the 'Luigi Vercotti'
line straight across. If the Stache were his negotiator, Lavrov wouldn't dare try this, of course the 'fainting couches' would have to take a number.

Threadkiller

You may have misread it then. Or, maybe I did.

What is the exact quote that you are referring to?

The greater point is how to create identification for an Unidentified Fledgling Obama.
