First?

Sue

Rush is having fun with this today.

GUS

Lyin' Williams is sorry for misremembering.

Jack is Back!

Lets not forget that Chelsea was out running by the Twin Towers when they got hit.

Captain Hate

All those 18 credits shot clear to Hell.

Tim Russert

I recall Brian's helicopter getting hit with a RPG.

This is such an open and public lie, one has to be concerned that it took so long to be exposed. This didn't happen in a corner.

Jack is Back!

And Jimmah's SEAL trained killer rabbit.

NKvirusedand back

The cream of connecticut's political and media class. Williams and Blumenthal lie about matters military, Chris Murphy bounced rent checks and was evicted, and of course twice elected Danny Malloy's son plead guilty to armed robbery and 'numerous'drug crimes, while Danny was not prosecuted by his Stamford cronies for home improvement kickbacks from contractors doing business with the city. Scum, all of them: http://articles.courant.com/2009-12-10/news/hc-web-malloy-son-1211dec10_1_dannel-malloy-prison-sentence-shippan

Jack is Back!

Barney Frank's denying he was running a brothel out of his townhouse on Capitol Hill.

James D.

MarkO, most of the MSM-ites live (like the Dems do) in their own constructed reality, where truth and falsehood are based not on anything objective, but on their wants or needs of the moment.

Captain Hate

The ewok has had some time to think about this:

And of course a JOM classic, the media conspiracy with Fitz to falsely allege that the CIA 'operative' leak came from the WH.

Brian Williams

I got burned on that play during practice, so I knew it was coming. Browner did a great job on Kearse, so I jumped the route and intercepted the ball.

I'm going to Disney World!!

BW at 12:36,

Only if you get vaccinated first, dude.

NKvirusedand back

AoS properly dumps on Wiliams in that post.

Cecil Turner

I'll give him this much: when telling a story repeatedly over the years, one tends to remember the story more than the actual incident, and details tend to evolve. That said, the initial report is an obvious attempt at misdirection, and the distinction between being on a downed helo or a helo that came to the aid of a downed helo is hardly trivial or difficult to recall.

On the other hand, I'm not convinced he had a lot of credibility to lose.

Jack is Back!

Can't top this:

"Why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family to ever go to a university? Was it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? Is it because they didn’t work hard, my ancestors who worked in the coal mines of northeast Pennsylvania and would come up after 12 hours and play football for four hours? It’s because they didn’t have a platform upon which to stand."

h/t Neal Kinnock

Extraneus

So Obama considers the Crusades as some sort of stain on Christianity?

What ethnic group feels the same as he does about that? Jews? Indians? Blacks? Swedes?

Who foams at the mouth over the Crusades?

James D.

I never thought Williams was anything more than an empty suit to start with - a real-life version of the William Hurt character in "Broadcast News".

It's not as though he, or NBC News generally, had any credibility in the first place to lose in my eyes.

henry

Oh, well if Chris Cuomo is defending him that changes everything.

NKvirusedand back

henry, Chris and andy cuomo may be sweating the media taking a look at the career of the maternal grandfather and the beating which effectively ended his life when PreetB starts poking around in andy's corruption closet

Danube on iPad

Blumenthal...Blumenthal...say, wasn't he the one with that wife-beating thingy? And wasn't there a DUI in there somewhere?

Brian Williams

So there I was waiting in the men's room for Senator Craig the locker room attendant. I had a needle ready, and quickly got the balls just the way Tom likes them. I'd say it took about 90 seconds.

jimmyk

Not surprising that many MSM creeps are closing ranks. I'm sure half of them have their own whoppers that have yet to be exposed.

Captain Hate

Not that one, DoT.

Jack is Back!

They have been reporting the Obama life story and political philosophy lie for the past 6 years why should they think their lies aren't safe also? He sets a fine example for serial lying and self-exaggeration.

DoT, wrong Blumenthal. That was Sid Vicious, Manic Max's father.

lyle

Only half, jimmyk?

matt

The Muslims took Jerusalem from the Byzantines in 637. The Sassanid/Parthian empire took Jerusalem in 614 and massacred over 90,000 Christians. They razed the Church of the Holy Sepulchure.

Umar, the one who set the Koran in stone, was welcomed as a savior by the Jewish community and allowed both Judaism and Christianity to continue under the rules of jizya.

Jerusalem was then something of a backwater until it was retaken in the First Crusade in 1099. Then the crusaders basically massacred everyone and established the Kingdom of Jerusalem etc.

So it has gone back and forth for centuries. Know your history, Obama.

jimmyk

Lyle, the other half has made a career of covering for the lies of Democrats.

jimmyk

Know your history, Obama.

Please, you're talking about a guy who just claimed that George Washington made beer in the White House.

Sue

Looking at TM's lead, it could be Bush lied, Williams almost died.

lyle

Point taken, jk.

Porchlight

That Prayer Breakfast speech is one of the most despicable of Zero's presidency and that's saying something.

He's not a fool. He's on the bad guys' side.

So the Repubs have apparently settled on their ObummerCare replacement, (Has Ryan signed off on this?) this is generally where the Repubs were in '09, this is certainly not classic economic theory (retains the prior condition prohibition) but it is smart politics because it is based on choice and anti-DC rhetoric, which is where the important voters are. Predictable but solid, will they pass this through '16 budget reconciliation, NO, but they must try to defund ObummerCare through reconciliation. Speaking of defund, Sallie Mae should lose it's $22BILLION bailout for THIS YEAR. http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2015/02/04/more-care-less-obama-hatch-burr-upton-health-aca-column/22884285/

Captain Hate

Please, you're talking about a guy who just claimed that George Washington made beer in the White House.

Everything 404 says about history, particularly US history, is either absolutely incorrect or betrays some childlike knowledge of a misleadingly poor summary of whatever event he's bloviating about. He's like the Cliff Klaven of presidents.

Captain Hate

He's not a fool. He's on the bad guys' side.

It's like he's trying to get the opposition party to point this out so he can claim victim status and animate his dwindling supporters. I can't think of another explanation.

NKvirusedand back

Porch@1:25 -- hear hear.

BTW the 'bad guys' are MB and other Islamists. Obummer undermines muslims who are trying to drag their religion to civilized levels of tolerance and modernity, like King Abdullah and al-sisi. al-sisi celebrated Orthodox christmas in the Copt Cathedral for God's sake. And Obummer undermines him at every turn.

NKvirusedand back

PS: Obummer is with the Bad Guys, but he's also a fool.

lyle

Must click.

James D.

CH @ 1:29

At least Cliff Clavin had a good heart, and could usually be counted on to try and do the right thing at the end of the day.

Obama is more like the Newman of Presidents.

Captain Hate

Tammy Bruce: What if Megyn Kelly had done what Brian Williams and Rodham did?

henry

Dan Rather found the frequency, Williams is an honest, decent man. Next thing you know, Kerry will admit it's Brian's hat that he still has.

NKvirusedand back

Our discussion yesterday-- IT'S ON: the muzzies demand immunity from scrutiny based on the seditious acts by muzzies. I demand muzzies be investigated when they assert any Jihadi slaim to impose sharia. We know where Obumer will go with this, let's see what the voters say: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/muslim-leader-white-house-meeting-bigotry-certain-republicans-nothing-new_840365.html

Remember, we wouldn't be commenting here if Al Gore hadn't invented the internet.

cathyf

Totally off-topic bleg here...

On Saturday our h.s. is hosting a speech tourney, and I am making chili and cornbread for the judges/coaches lounge. The last time I did this I used the Jiffy corn muffin mix (the cheap little boxes.) It was kind of meh -- tasted like cornbread, which everybody loves, but it was kind of dry. Does anybody have a better cornbread (actually I think I am going to make corn muffins this time) recipe? Or some tricks to doctoring up the jiffy little blue box version?

narciso

he clearly didn't learn the 'lesson of not being seen'

Wille N.

Put a little weed in 'em, cathyf.

RickB

I certainly hope Brian Williams retains his job. He exemplifies the entire MFM and is as fine a representative of media core values as Obama is of the Fascist Party values.

NKvirusedand back

cathyf-- go to food network website for cornbread/muffin recipies. Try the cheddar/jalepeno one... delish and easy to make. Even I did it.

"The president’s decision to link medieval Christian violence committed in the name of their faith to the atrocities perpetrated by Islamic terrorists today, however, has eroded the foundations his argument that religion plays no role in the global war against Islamist terrorism."

CH and JiB, I know that. But I delight in posting that same line every time the Senator's name is mentioned.

Extraneus

Dozens of Dems might skip Netanyahu's congressional address

Vice President Joe Biden, who usually sits next to House Speaker John Boehner during joint sessions of Congress, hasn’t committed to attending either, according to Politico.

Would they really do this? I hope they do.

NKvirusedand back

Janet-- unfortunately that's an easy one for Obummer. 11th Century European Crusader attrocities were committed by REAL Christians, 21st Century ISIS are not real Muzzies, they are just bad boys, like racist cops.

lyle

I hope they do, too, Ex. It would clarify things.

Barack Obama

Honesty. Let's talk a moment about the importance of honesty. It's been told many times, but I think it's worth repeating in this context. George Washington, the father of our country, when he was growing up about the age of my youngest daughter, well, he was asked about his father's favorite tree there at the White House. You see, it was no longer standing. It had fallen. When his dad asked him about it - and his dad was a stern man who took discipline very seriously. When his dad confronted him, little George Washington 'fessed up, "Pa, I cannot tell a lie, I cut that tree down with my wooden teeth."

We could all stand to learn a lesson in the retelling of that story.

Danube on iPad

Nice WaPo piece on Williams:

I really don't think he can last.

I knew a water landing was dicey, but the Hudson was calm that day, and I just didn't see any other alternative to save the passengers.

I'm journalist, saving people is what we do.

Janet

this is funny (from Tom S. on FB)-

Captain Hate

DoT, I hesitated before hitting the Post button because I suspected that.

Brian Williams

I remember saying "George, Let me go across first to see if the British are waiting to ambush us." So I jumped into the Delaware and swam across, dodging ice floes. Well the Hessians were all drunk as skunks so I gave the signal and George and the rest came over in their boats.

Brian Williams

"Abe" I said "It might be political suicide, but need to go to Gettysburg and just say a few words, yes your opponents will try to tie you to the terrible casualties, but you have to go. Here I wrote down a few lines for you."

Extraneus

This will only make it sweeter when the R candidates with guts commence re-ridiculing Hillary over the Bosnian sniper fire incident.

RickB

I supported Heritage candidate Tom Cotton from the moment I first read of him. Arkansas is very lucky to have such a Senator.

As far as I’m concerned, every last one of them can rot in hell, but as long they don’t do that, they can rot in Guantanamo Bay.”

Note to Fascists - He's the future. Get used to it.

I didn't know that the Jim Crow Laws were proposed by Christians, I thought they were a Democratic response to a Republican idea.

"Tim," I said, "I don't care if we know who leaked that story, let's say it was Scooter."

Brian W.

So I told Tank Man, "dude, just stand in front of those four tanks. Even though the Chicoms have murdered thousands of your friends in Tiananmen Square, we'll have cameras on you for this one. You don't have to thank me. I'm a journalist."

OT, and good news for a change: my former thesis advisor has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering. Yay! This is a well-deserved honor.

Actually having read Tom Holland's survey of the early days of Islamic conquest, that wave is much like what ISIS has done just in the last few years, against Byzantine territory,

Brian Williams

I was talking to some of my former college classmates who went on to achieve degrees more advanced than I did (Doctorates, Masters, Bachelors, Associates) and they all told me "Don't sweat it, big guy, you've still got your integrity".

They weren't after Scooter Libby. They were after Dick Cheney. Libby was an unfortunate accident.

Can Rs schedule a vote to override Barry's veto of the repeal of 404Care right in the middle of the address?

Captain Hate

Per lyle's 2:13, will Congress have to approve any deal with Iran?

Brian Williams

They were throwing everything they could at us, screaming curses and threats, but we kept walking with our heads held up. I was determined that those kids were going to attend Little Rock Central High. Because education and journalism class, but especially journalism class.

narciso

'He'll never get over Macho Grande' Williams reminds one of Robert Hay's 'long winded raconteur' from Airplane,

jimmyk

will Congress have to approve any deal with Iran?

When I heard Lindsey Graham speak a couple of weeks ago, he said that they would insist on that, which tells me that the answer isn't automatically 'yes' (I guess because it's not a treaty?), and therefore that Barry will feel free to do whatever the hell he wants.

jimmyk

In fact, here's the story:

Obama would veto bill for congressional approval of Iran deal

James D.

To go along with Lyle's 2:13, there's this:

http://mosaicmagazine.com/essay/2015/02/obamas-secret-iran-strategy/

To the extent the theory in that piece is true, Obama really and truly ought to be either impeached for high treason, or removed on 25th Amendment grounds due to insanity.

jimmyk

It seems not out of the question that enough Ds could vote to override a veto of congressional approval for the deal. People like Chuckie Schumer, Menendez, etc. That nefarious Jewish influence. The question is whether even that would stop Obama.

Doesn't Congress have the "power of the purse" ability to refuse to allocate funds for the deal?

I resent the slander of comparing Williams to Cliff Klavin. Klavin's Buffalo Herd Theory of why beer makes us smarter is one of the great contributions to modern thought.

Well, I had a really good night at pool this week.

Stats should come out tomorrow, but I'll probably end up in the top 30 in the nation for the week (#SpreadsheetDontLie).

So there's that.

jimmyk

It seems that Barry has a lot of discretionary cash floating around for whatever purpose he wants. And if there is not enough, he can just fine a couple of big banks and get some more. But yeah, I suspect if Congress got its act together it could make like difficult for him. That's a big 'if.' I'd like to see the veto override.

RickB

jimmyk,

What happens if the Saudis support Israel glassing the Persians? It's a regional dispute and the Saudis understand the Persian long term plan to take Mecca, why wouldn't they support an Israeli checkmate? They've rented Crusaders for decades and they don't even have to pay the Israelis to pull the thorn.

The Global Village Idiot vision of Whirled Peas no longer pertains and the OPM Famine coupled with lousy demographics makes its return rather unlikely.

Captain Hate

If 404 had a son, he'd be just like this:

boatbuilder

"...we were only doing a hundred forward knots." "...with rounds coming into the airframe..." "four birds".

It is astonishing to me that it wasn't immediately obvious to everybody listening (OK, other than Letterman and Baldwin) that this guy was bullshitting.

Any non-military person who wasn't trying to BS would have said "a hundred knots" (or even MPH), "aircraft" or "copter" or "helicopter."

Captain Hate
