Beasts of England

We've gone from Cash for Clunkers to Cash for Clintons. Ugh.

narciso

we don't remember this fellow:

http://fas.org/irp/congress/1998_rpt/sgo-sir/2-21.htm

or vignola's pardon, or Marc Rich, (was it Rosen who said Holder regretted signing off on it,)

henry

Yup. vast attempt to shut down Clinton (Rev Jessie, Rev Al, etc.) shakedown machines. They are as much "for the children" as Margaret Sanger.

Captain Hate on the iPad

The Clintoon Crime Family Foundation should by itself be enough to capsize the HMS Pantsuit although Slick's insane nattering about ISIS being an NGO gave Georgetown students a semester's worth of casuistry.

Beasts of England

Welp, I've learned a new word today, I can take the afternoon off. Thanks, Captain Casuistry!!

henry

Does slick get write offs for the virgin goats his foundation contributed to Adam Gadahn.

Eric in Boise

I'm just thankful Hit didn't use that "dog licking itself" riff in a Hillarity! post. Thank you very much.

(Heads off to look up "casuistry")

narciso

this happened back in January, they are announcing it now?

Captain Hate on the iPad

Adam Gadahn no longer stealing Gaia's oxygen to use for goat burrito farts is very good news. Has the ewok written about that yet?

narciso

true, stoner kid hits the big time, Beck's crew had a riot with the 'Afghanistan to Zanzibar' flourish,
in one of their dispatches,

Miss Marple

It occurs to me that Hillary is trapped in this candidacy. She HAS to run because all of those foreign people who gave money over the last 2 years did so in the expectation that she would be the nest president. Failure to deliver could have very unpleasant consequences.

Plus as long as she is a candidate, no charges will be filed, as Obama does not want to open that can of works and be accused of interfering in a primary (which would probably not bother him but would give many other dems pause).

So, even if she seems incompetent and unenthusiastic, her candidacy will lumber on, soaking up money and time from other possible candidates. The big bucks donors will avoid the other candidates due to fear of the Clintons' well-known talent for revenge.

And her minions, such as David Brock and Lanny Davis, are trapped in the death march with her.

I look forward to the fireworks to come as the election draws closer.

Extraneus

Shweizer's next target is Jeb.

“What we’re doing is a drill-down investigation of Jeb’s finances similar to what we did with the Clintons in terms of looking at financial dealings, cronyism, who he’s been involved with,” Schweizer told me on Wednesday. “We’ve found some interesting things.”

Rick Ballard

You guys don't know the meaning of a word describing one of the two pillars supporting the American system of jurisprudence? Our system would surely collapse if it rested solely upon sophistry.

narciso

you mean it doesn't:

so the Medici's embrace of Red Queen, her endorsement of Zaphod, Wolf Hall is turning out to be a timely allegory of these times,

narciso

so Pinchuk's Interpipe, affiliated with Medvedev's Gazprom, provides the means of shipping out the oil, Uranium One, provides the fuel for Iran's reactors, technically Prince Turki is against the Iranian bomb, but it could be a long play for their own nuclear program, these things don't happen in a vaccuum,

The Infamous Ignatz

Casuistry is to sophistry is to speciousness as Barry Obama is to Sir Edmund Clinton is to Nancy Pelosi.

Jack is Back!

CH beat me to it but:

Looks like The Champ hasn't lost his "merde touch". Upcoming presser to explain how two innocent hostages were killed in an anti-terror raid that killed that Gadan kid from California.

I can't wait to hear how he read about this in the papers.

Supposedly it all went down in January and now are hering about it.

narciso

was this around the time, 'those random folks' were shot up in that jewish deli,

Beasts of England

Uh, oh. Barky is on TV apologizing for killing a US citizen and an Italian in a counterterrorism raid. And he's saying Pohkeestahn.

Miss Marple

Thanks for the warning, guys. I can refrain from turning on the TV.

Why is he saying this now? What are we being distracted from noticing?

Jack is Back!

CH,

I thought that the Clinton Foundation was "the most interesting" NGO in the world.

Beasts of England

My thoughts, too, Miss Marple. There has to be an ulterior motive with Teh JEF. Curiouser and curiouser.

Jack is Back!

It was a Sheihk Al-Brenna operation using a drone but smells. If you have the HUMINT that Gadahn and others were located for the strike then where was the HUMINT that left out the hostages location???

Jack is Back!

....Sheihk Al-Brennan.....

Miss Marple

Beasts, I do wonder if Obama has also been drawn into the Clinton Foundation scandal, for after all, HE had to sign off on that Russian uranium buy.

When's that book coming out?

narciso

Steinhauer's latest slim volume, has one of the characters, (ridiculing Romney's foreign policy) it's set in 2012, he later turns out to be a dubious character in the operation that bookends the tael

narciso

with the original Assange, he tried to inflate the size of his organization,


http://thehill.com/policy/technology/239681-five-new-leakers-possible-since-snowden

Beasts of England

I'm not sure, Miss Marple. I can't help but think that Øbama is involved in the leaks to undermine Hil, and that he believes he can withstand the scrutiny of the donation better than she can. Which is likely, as the cash didn't go to his slush fund.

narciso

so it happened about a week after paris,

Ben

"Then where was the HUMINT on the hostages location?"

The same place it was during Tora Bora. Btw the senior bin laden wants to part the Red Sea with a suspension bridge. Miracles still happen.

Jack is Back!

Yowza! Brett Baier is like a hound dog on a hambone with his Clinton Cash expose. Getting a peek now on FNC. The Slimes is even cooperating at full throttle.

I am changing implosion to erosion.

sbw

Sophistry? Isn’t that a Sophie Tucker joke? ::Googling::
I will never forget it you know. I was terribly drunk the other night. I woke up and there was an elephant in my bed. I said,"Lord have mercy I must've been tight last night." "Well,"said the elephant, "kinda."

Captain Haiku

Scandals everyday
Never consequences, though
Very frustrating

narciso

lets think this through, State wouldn't have been the only agency to sign off on this deal, right Commerce would have something to do with this 'reset roundup' I don't think one could quarantine this only to Red Queen,

Beasts of England

I'm having a hard time reconciling the absurdity of Walker bring wrung out for secret routers and so-called coordination, while Clinton is cash flowing hundreds of millions from foreign governments and it's been greatly ignored.

Miss Marple

Fertile areas of inquiry would have to include the Obama tax returns, the Obama Library fund,
and the funding for OFA.

henry

Beasts, in the court filings on the John Doe it came out the GAB and DAs were using illegal secret routers and private emails to coordinate the political attack on conservatives -- just like the EPA, IRS, Hillary etc. The difference? Walker's campaign was required by law to be off of state resources (the secret router was not secret, the private email accounts were required by law).

Ben

Another attempt to corner the spun yarn market that may even exceed BENGHAAAZZZZEEEE in creative wishful thinking. You're better off using that coconut to plan what you'd do with the Powerball jackpot.

Beasts of England

I saw a reference to that the other day at Althouse, henry. The irony is indeed delicious.

narciso

play it again, sam:

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Security-Watch/Backchannels/2015/0421/How-the-fall-of-Qaddafi-gave-rise-to-Europe-s-migrant-crisis-video

the 'reset redoubt' begins with Red Queen, but no way does it does it stop at her door,

Captain Hate

Here's a clip of what Jane was talking about before as YEEEAAARRGGHH gets roundly ridiculed by the Intern Killer and even Ed McMahon Meeka joins in the slattering:

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/mark-finkelstein/2015/04/23/morning-joe-slams-howard-deans-jihad-against-clinton-expos%C3%A9

No, Yeeaarrrgh, you didn't look like a tool at all.

Threadkiller

Well at least we are all reassured knowing that the quest for money wouldn't involve violating the eligibility requirements for POTUS.

narciso

As a commenter at Althouse points out, Keystone Pipeline can't be approved, but Volodya getting a 20% stake in Uranium, that's fine and dandy, i'm paraphrasing,

Miss Marple

Excuse me, but didn't Obama have to sign off on that uranium deal?

It's not like Hillary could give approval without others being involved.

Beasts of England

Fixin' to finish up packing and start the trip to New Orleans for the JazzFest with the Beastettes!! Wish me luck! And if we happen to run into Lady Gaga, I'll be sure to pass along best wishes from all the JOM family. :)

narciso

I guess that explains the flak from the usual suspects, who would ordinarily be flambeeing Hillary on a spit,

The Infamous Ignatz

If you happen to run into Lady Gaga just make sure you're exceeding the speed limit when you do.

Jeff Dobbs

Beasts:
the trip to New Orleans for the JazzFest with the Beastettes!!

I'm not jealous.

But I am lying.

You kids have a lot of fun.

I did make my crawfish etouffe and dirty rice last week when sis in law and hubby were in town...


narciso

isn't what they did re the tax returns, mail fraud?

Ben

As you know flambe on a spit is as dangerous for the chef as it is for the planned entre.

Old Lurker

Want to worry even more?

LUN.

The comments nail the implications dead on.

jimmyk on iPad

"Excuse me, but didn't Obama have to sign off on that uranium deal?"

The funny thing is that Dems use that to defend Hillary, saying she had no real policy influence, it was all Barry in action. Aside from the preposterousness of the notion of Precious actually doing anything but admiring himself in the mirror, how does this argument square with recognizing all of Hillary's "accomplishments."

jimmyk on iPad

And I had the misfortune of seeing a clip of Podesta, to whom I'd never paid much attention. Man, he is almost as repulsive as Carville. My skin is still crawling.

narciso

same for Ericsson, that also breached sanctions, which retained Levick Strategic Communications, the Gitmo detainee's lifeline,

narciso

seriously, why else would you let a russian company get a stake in a major Canadian uranium firm?

NKvirusedandback

Podesta is a lot smarter and more dangerous than Carville.

The Infamous Ignatz

From OL's link;

As of last month, Chase has also instituted a new policy which, “restricts borrowers from using cash to make payments on credit cards, mortgages, equity lines, and auto loans,” writes Professor Joseph Salerno of the Mises Institute.

I've never understood how that kind of policy squares with "This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private."

narciso

definitely, more dangerous:

Old Lurker

Why, that would make you think the Constitution applies, Iggy.

There are about six really alarming things about that story and what it bodes for government access to our money and to 100% knowledge of where we got it and where we spend it.

I swear we are all going to be bartering chickens if this continues.

jimmyk on iPad

Ig, you're still under the quaint misconception that words mean what they say, laws are enforced, etc. That's so 20th century.

jimmyk on iPad

OL beat me to it, but yes, the quest for a "negative interest rate" seems like a backdoor way to confiscate wealth and penalize those who save for the future, thought it does confer a nice capital gain for those holding fixed rate assets. Which includes the Fed, of course.

James D.

I doubt we'll even be allowed to barter chickens, OL.

henry

Larry Ellison has been pushing electronic cash for 30+ years. Can't to big data brother profiles with holes in the database.

narciso

even if you only go by the rockwell link, you can't put cash in a bank, or draw from it, 'winning the future'

narciso

self awareness, apparently is zero:

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/23/world/middleeast/richard-c-holbrookes-diary-of-disagreement-with-the-obama-administration.html?

Old Lurker

Jimmy, the negative interest rate route to confiscation is one thing, sort of a slow boil. But the parallel to Cyrus where with the stroke of a pen they gave haircuts to all accounts in excess of $X is more likely where our Progs will take this. As it says in the link, first you engineer a crisis, then...

NKvirusedandback

JimmyK-- neg are designed to confiscte and distort investments by driving them to places savers don't necessarily want to go, hence the equities bubble. The other thing, as you point out is that neg rates reward the Debtor Class. And who are the biggest Debtors today? Why that would be governments at all levels, up to the Big Kahuna, the USA Fed Gov't. Very convenient.

Jane

It occurs to me that Hillary is trapped in this candidacy. She HAS to run because all of those foreign people who gave money over the last 2 years did so in the expectation that she would be the nest president. Failure to deliver could have very unpleasant consequences.

At my age, that's the stuff fantasies are made of.

exdemocrat

It - Gus, you really should get a message to Walker's people suggesting he go after the EB-5 'Pilot Program' this summer (its up for renewal in September). This so-called pilot program is responsible for perverting and corrupting an otherwise sensible part of a smart LEGAL immigration program.
Given Walker's recent statements on that issue, this is a great way to demonstrate what a principled pol looks like to the masses.

Jack is Back

Belgium just followed the Swiss and have issued a negative yield 5 year bond. It's like those twisting water slides where you can't wait for the big splash down.

James D.

I think that "THE DOG IS NOW LICKING ITSELF" would make an excellent replacement for "Ebola? Remain Calm and Wash Your Hands" as the tagline for this site.

narciso

then you don't let it go to waste, but the Red Queen's need for bakshi, is a small part of this story,

Jack is Back

Looks like the Iranians are worse poker players then Precious since they didn't call his bluff.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/04/23/fleet-iranian-ships-heading-to-yemen-turns-around-after-being-tracked-by-us/?cmpid=cmty_twitter_fn

narciso

so one looks at the policies that Zaphod has pursued, withdrawing the counterinsurgency strategy in both the Stans and Mesopotamia, was like steroids for the jayvee, giving Volodya veto over many of the sanctions, this disturbing series of mash notes, with Khamenei, and that's just the foreign angle,

NKvirusedandback

JiB- nah.. The Mullahs are just biding their time until sanctions are fully off... then they will do whatever they please. And Obummer will back them up.

narciso

so like the Dowager Empress's stone flotilla then,

Old Lurker

Silly Eric "I'm just thankful Hit didn't use that "dog licking itself" riff in a Hillarity! post. Thank you very much."

The Clintons never do anything themselves. They have people for those jobs.

narciso

good news everybody:

Old Lurker

Those ships were turned around as theater to make it appear that Obama can control Iran so that we will be more willing to accept the scam negotiated by Obama-Kerry. Duh.

Captain Haiku, Low Info Voter

Do negative rates

I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again. I did not have uranium with that oligarch.

Eric in Boise

That visual's not much better, OL!

NKvirusedandback

OL@12:50-- exactly. The Mullahs are just playing games until sanctions are off. Then the nukes come out, and they'll say 'whaddya gonna do about it"

Has anyone yet looked at the ROTC walking a mile in red high heeled shoes from the point of view that, not post-modernist invisible bias, but individual women decide for themselves to put on red high heels?

I wonder if a Fraternity on Campus had ordered their pledges to march in Red High Heeled Shoes if they would have been shut down or penalized by Campus Administrators for excessive hazing, etc.
