Bush will say nothing.

narciso

well there was no evidence that this was anything other than a premeditated terror attack, now the Company for reasons I spelled out in my own peripatetic blog, they didn't want to point that out,

narciso

just considering this instance,

http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2014/04/zawahiris_longtime_d.php

or the fact that the cofounder of the Nusra Front, Al Qatari, was Iraqi and had longstanding ties to Zawahiri,

Thomas Collins

This is playing out perfectly for The Hill. Oligarchy media is vetting the scandals in a somewhat tough manner, but ultimately Oligarchy Media will conclude that the Clinton Foundation, The Hill's burning the tapes, et al shouldn't disqualify The Hill. Now the meme that although mistakes were made, the GOP has gone overboard is starting.

I think The Hill is in a better position now than when she announced.

Unfortunately, neither Machiavelli nor Lee Atwater is walking through that door for Scott Walker (although Team Walker is the one with the best chance of overcoming what will be a full court press by Oligarchy Media to have The Hill be our first female POTUS).

Thomas Collins

Notice how Oligarchy Media is slickly promoting the theme that unless there is a smoking gun, The Hill Is the One. Oligarchy Media is already letting The Hill skate on what is going to be the most tightly controlled schedule for a major contender who is not an incumbent in the history of POTUS races. In fact, most incumbents have had a more unscripted campaign than The Hill's is going to be.

yes, i'm shocked Carlos Slim's didn't point this out:

I'm not voting for Hlllary! And, O'Malley just lost any chance of getting nominated. Not that he had much of a chance, before.

And, the dems have no bench in anything resembling fly-over country.

Still Like to see Scott Walker on the ballot. But gone are the days that balloting went on for days. Round, after round.

Jeb can't win, either.

narciso

have I made clear, what a nazgul Lupica is from that last thread,

mooseotto

Watch out Morell is a stooge for the Hill. Note the narrative " Bush is ok , but Cheney was the liar", to show that Morell has no political ax to grind -baloney, don't fall for it.Morell knows that the damage to Bush will never be repaired due to the MSM and Bush's reticence. No mention in the NYT article of who ( Ben Rhodes?) came up with the false idea of blaming the attack on the anti-muslim film produced in America.

narciso

yes, we gathered that, hence my two links

PO Moore -- RIP. Mayor Bane won't go to that Inspectors' Funeral, Bratton will have to take the flak. These are the real world consequences of letting the racial hustlers decide policing rules. And if Mayor Bane's punk kid does go to New Haven, he'll be going to a far more dangerous place than NYC, in New Haven the race hustlers have run the PD for years and it shows. The little punk will get his skinny ass shot, unless he has 24/7 NYPD protection.

Lupica and Brian Williams are long time New Canaan residents.... something in the water?

brainslugs I think, although really they would starve on those two,

The Infamous Ignatz

--he says there is “no evidence” to support the charge that “there was a conspiracy between C.I.A. and the White House to spin the Benghazi story in a way that would protect the political interests of the president and Secretary Clinton,”--

Who more credible to make this assessment than the deputy director of the CIA at the time?

I understand after a thorough investigation Haldeman and Ehrlichman concluded there was no evidence of a conspiracy regarding Watergate.

I wonder if there is evidence Mister Morell was in charge of making sure there was no evidence?

Miss Marple

Thomas Collins,

I still have hope. There are several factors that could negate your pessimistic outlook:

1. Dem voter enthusiasm is going to be pretty low, what with all of their candidates being old.

2. Foreign events might make voters dubious of electing another dem.

3. Hillary might have another health scare.

4. Although the media still has a lot of influence, more people do NOT watch network news or take a paper than ever before in our history.

5. Divine intervention is always a possibility. Prayer for the nation is a good idea.

Ignatz, I just got word my new Gordon Setter was born Saturday. I get the pick of the (small) litter. It will be a male. I think I'll wait till Mothers Day to tell my wife.

Old Lurker

They really do tell you where they want to take us:

"(CNSNews.com) – Federal Communications Commission (FCC) member Ajit Pai said over the weekend that he foresees a future in which federal regulators will seek to regulate websites based on political content, using the power of the FCC or Federal Elections Commission (FEC). He also revealed that his opposition to “net neutrality” regulations had resulted in personal harassment and threats to his family.

Speaking on a panel at the annual “Right Online” conference in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Pai told audience members, “I can tell you it has not been an easy couple of months personally. My address has been publicly released. My wife’s name, my kids’ names, my kids’ birthdays, my phone number, all kinds of threats [have come] online.”

Pai, one of two Republicans on the five-member FCC, has been an outspoken critic of net neutrality regulations passed by the agency on Feb. 6. The rules, which are set to take effect on June 12, reclassify Internet providers as utilities and command them not to block or “throttle” online traffic.

However, Pai said it was only the beginning. In the future, he said, “I could easily see this migrating over to the direction of content… What you’re seeing now is an impulse not just to regulate the roads over which traffic goes, but the traffic itself.”

Continuing, he said, “It is conceivable to me to see the government saying, ‘We think the Drudge Report is having a disproportionate effect on our political discourse. He doesn’t have to file anything with the FEC. The FCC doesn’t have the ability to regulate anything he says, and we want to start tamping down on websites like that.’”

In February, Pai co-authored an editorial with former FEC Chairman Lee Goodman that warned of efforts by those agencies to regulate content online.

“Is it unthinkable that some government agency would say the marketplace of ideas is too fraught with dissonance? That everything from the Drudge Report to Fox News… is playing unfairly in online political speech? I don’t think so,” Pai said.

“The First Amendment means not just the cold parchment that’s in the Constitution. It’s an ongoing cultural commitment, and I sense that among a substantial number of Americans and a disturbing number of regulators here in Washington that online speech is [considered] a dangerous brave new world that needs to be regulated,” he concluded."

Old Lurker

Pai will be able to say "I tried to warn you all."

glasater

I will never forget the war on President Bush the CIA waged during his term in office.

They are a disgrace to put it kindly.

Miss Marple

From the Walker people, a message:

narciso

yes it was a rare official like Jose Rodriguez, that didn't participate in this equivalent of a coup against the government, and he soft pedaled it in his memoir, perhaps because of his ghost Bill Harlow,

NKonChrome

OL-- and Pai holds to these 18th century 'liberal' truths despite his background, .....Harvard BA (Liberal Arts) and U ChiTown JD. This man understands America and Americans better than 90+% of 'natural born' citizens.

5. Divine intervention is always a possibility. Prayer for the nation is a good idea.

You got that right.

Watch - Hillary will take frequent breaks from the campaign trail to rest. She doesn't need to constantly fundraise, thanks to the slush fund and all the other money coming in, so I expect she will be gone for days at a time. The MSM will helpfully decline to notice this.

narciso

btw, on Morgan Freeman's Hillary infomercial, Madame Secretary, they had the antagonist be a Princeton U debating champion, a subliminal jab at Cruz,

Nice comeback:

@MotherJones
Can a CEO who laid off workers, botched a merger, and left with $21 million become president?

‏@AsheSchow
Can a woman who attacked sex assault survivors, botched Embassy security and hid emails/donations become president?

Miss Marple

Porchlight,

Of course they will decline to notice it.

However, when Bush was running the first time they refused to report on his appearances, so the anti-Bush Republicans started saying he was a lazy campaigner, a theme also picked up by the press.

To combat that, two other gals and I started reporting on every campaign appearance with help from other members on Free Republic. We even got a photographer for a news agency to send us photos, until he was told by his employer to knock it off.

I hope we are prepared to keep asking "Where IS she?" day after day, along with concerned comments like "Is she sick? Hope she didn't have another health scare!"

Old Lurker

NK, yes. They were traveling but they got it today.

Porchlight

Great ideas, MM. That's where hashtags can really work. #WhereIsHillary should do nicely.

The Infamous Ignatz

Excellent, Lazybusy.
I'm pretty excited about mine, especially if little Chester helps me snag my reluctant girl. : )

The Infamous Ignatz

You left out the two most important issues, MM.*

6. Hillary is a terrible candidate and campaigner.

7. People are generally reluctant to stay with the same party after eight years unless it was a very successful eight years.

*And an eighth wild card of course;
8. If the economy tanks the party in the WH usually gets it in the neck.

Porchlight

6. Hillary is a terrible candidate and campaigner.

I agree, but the MSM can easily get around it the way they've done to date - by interviewing her and asking her questions as rarely as possible. I mean has anyone seen her since the Iowa van visit? She's sent out a few tweets and that's it.

I think she'll be the first presidential candidate in history who basically won't be on the trail in any meaningful way.

Porchlight

Regarding your 7 and 8, Iggy, I agree, but history hasn't been much of a guide recently, at least not in Presidential years. Obama should have been laughed off the stage, but he was elected twice.

The Infamous Ignatz

Barry benefited from 7 and 8 in 2008 and they didn't really apply in 2012. The economy wasn't growing much but it was growing.

daddy

An OT for Narciso.

Tomorrow we have our local election for Anchorage Mayor. Andrew Halcro (Republican, and famous enemy of Sarah Palin) was unexpectedly beaten in the Mayoral Primary by little known Conservative, Amy Dembowski.

The runoff is tomorrow so Halcro has finally decided to endorse the Democrat running against Amy in the Runoff election.

Halcro offers last-minute endorsement of Berkowitz in race for Anchorage mayor

Halcro, who got 21.5 percent of the vote last month, initially said he would not endorse either Berkowitz or Demboski. But in a Facebook post late Sunday, Halcro encouraged his supporters to vote for Berkowitz, saying he was worried about Demboski’s honesty, integrity, and maturity, “and her decision to allow the most extreme elements of the Republican Party to lead her campaign.”

More examples of the oh-so-tolerant left. When will the right take the gloves off much less acknowledge they're in a fight to the death?

NKonChrome

The Clintonistas and Legacy Media all know she can easily lose. Young woman and black voter apathy kills Clinton as it would have Obummer'12. That's why we see the Ferguson, Baltimore and rape culture media jihads. They are '16 battlespace preparation to stir those Obama groups. Two things, I doubt that young women and blacks will get enthusiastic for HildaBeast and of course urging riots and carrying around mattresses will alienate more sane Dems and LIVs. HildaBeast should wind up with the worst of all worlds, alienated natural voters and still indifferent blacks and young women. That's a loser.

lyle

Obama should have been laughed off the stage, but he was elected twice.

Not in '08, he shouldn't have.

Remember his campaign promises (lies)? Posting all new proposed congressional bills online for five days for public input; there's no red states or blues states, we're all Americans; pro traditional marriage; winning the "good" war in Afghanistan; most transparent admin...evah; reaching across the aisle, blah, blah, blah. Remember THAT guy? Sure, this little internet refuge knew it was all bullshit given his background but all this blather on top of being half black and running against probably the worst GOP candidate in the last 100 years and he was no laughing matter. Well, maybe to our erstwhile allies...

Beasts of England

Can anyone confirm a shooting by the BPD today? I'm not finding it anywhere. I pray it's not true.

jimmyk

history hasn't been much of a guide recently, at least not in Presidential years. Obama should have been laughed off the stage, but he was elected twice.

True, he should have, but that doesn't refute Iggy's 7 and 8, in that the first election came after a less than stellar 8 years under W (at least in terms of popularity numbers). So it was going to be tough to elect an R. The only President to succeed an 8-year President from the same party in the last 100 years or so is Bush 41, and that came after Ronaldus Maximus, the greatest President of at least the 20th century.

So I think history still shows that this election is the R's to lose. Which isn't to say they won't figure out a way to lose.

The other rule which isn't relevant now, but helps explain O's reelection, is that it takes a strong candidate to defeat a sitting President.

Porchlight

Like I said, lyle, he was dangerous, but he still should have been laughed off the stage. Junior Senate backbencher in his first term. ZERO accomplishments. Hillary should have beat him easily. And she probably would have (albeit narrowly) if he hadn't cheated in the caucuses.

lyle

of course urging riots and carrying around mattresses will alienate more sane Dems and LIVs.

Can you point one of these out or name one, NK?

Porchlight

I agree that it ought to be hard for the Dems to win a third term. Will it? I don't know. I don't think this is the same country anymore.

henry

Beasts, this one? same area as the riots.

The Infamous Ignatz

couple of interesting comments from Wretchard's essay on Pam Geller's shindig;

Contrast the Charlie Hebro massacre, where the police guards did not have guns, with the event in Texas (two terrorists now taking the eternal dirt nap, one officer wounded, not critically).

It is difficult for me to imagine a situation or location today where armed people should not be present and ready to respond.

The NRA really should step up to the plate on this.


And;
And as usual the whining morons have started moaning about the horrors of "hate speech." As for me I think that if we start banning hate speech we ought to start with the Koran. Its full of it.

lyle

Melanin content trumped chromosome content, Porch. If Cankles could have turned--Zeliglike--darker in '08, she damn well would have. Her pitiful attempts to SOUND black, notwithstanding.

Beasts of England

Thanks, henry. What a f*cking nightmare.

henry

The mayor will regret ending the curfew tonight. Are the Nat Guard still deployed?

lyle

From henry's link:

Police said the man had a gun that fired when it dropped during the arrest. The witness, however, said she saw no weapon.

I call bullshit. An AD on a dropped gun isn't entirely unheard of, but pretty close.

Jack is Back!

No one was shot. A gun may have gone off but no one was shot per cops on the scene. But boy was the Thug Army on high alert.

Miss Marple

lyle, One shot only. Guy threw himself on the ground and hurt himself. Mike Tobin on Fox said he thought someone got shot (hearing the shot and seeing the guy on the ground) but he saw no wound and there was no blood on the pavement.

Guy has been taken to hospital as a precaution.

Girl witness believed there was no gun and the guy was shot in the back. However, she saw the same thing Tobin did only embellished.

In both cases, eyewitnesses were wrong.

lyle

Sultan Knish:

The last thing that Baltimore, or any other place on earth, needs is more community policing, sentencing reform and political pandering to violent mobs. But pro-criminal politicians like Obama want to make Baltimore worse while turning the rest of the country into Baltimore. What would that look like?

If the country had Baltimore’s murder rate, around 120,000 Americans would be murdered every year. Not to mention 2.3 million assaults, 1.8 million robberies and 160,000 rapes by “misguided youth”.

And we can have that country. All we have to do is listen to the voices clamoring for criminal justice reform and America can look like Rawlings-Blake’s “space to destroy” Baltimore.

henry

The rumor will set off the thugs. Any facts will be called coverup. It will not matter that the idiot wasn't shot.

Porchlight

Sure, lyle. I understand why '08 happened the way it did. But not so long ago it wouldn't have happened that way. We now have a bar for POTUS nomination (and probably POTUS itself) that is permanently lowered.

Enjoyed a delayed viewing of the Clippers - Spurs Game 7 last night. One of the best series I have seen in a long time. Played with class and excellence by both sides. I wish they could have met in the conference finals.

Glad we didn't do the fight. Mayweather is an excellent boxer, but after all the hype and the ghetto attitude, he was a technician with little heart. That just doesn't fill the seats the way other fighters do.

Also went bug hunting last night. Something has been eating our veggies and even the marigolds planted to ward off bugs. We found a new pesticide that may be working and assassinated a ton of slugs and snails the old fashioned way (heel of the boot).

The chicks, Hortense, Lupe, Heloise and Gladys, are growing fast and we introduced them to dried mealworms (chicken crack) yesterday. I can honestly say that chicks dig me.

Recent headline that several of the Obamacare exchanges are in danger because babydaddy's money flood has ended.

And I am going to guess that there is Soros money behind the Occupy radicals in place like Oakland and Seattle. I smell Bolsheviks.

Ig @ 3:26

We certainly have come a long way in this country, haven't we?

Back in the 70's, we had liberals defending, all te way to the SUpreme Court, the right of Nazis to don uniforms and swastikas and march through a Jewish neighborhood filled with survivors of the Holocaust. And the Nazis won their case.

Today, we have liberals defending the right of Muslims to murder people who draw cartoons they don't like.

To also quote Porch @ 3:20: this isn't the same country anymore.

'Sane Liberals' our liberal friends who are frankly disgusted by the pro-criminal and anti-man agenda of the Left are in fact Liberals.

Last week CNN's resident Communist, Van Jones, got so much face time that it struck me that perhaps someone is working behind the scenes to rehab his reputation and turn him into the next Black leader for the masses when the Sharpton's and Jesse Jackson's and John Lewis's pass on.

Yesterday while riding as a passenger on Alaska Airlines I browsed thru their on plane Magazine, Alaska Airlines "BEYOND", and there was a story on GREEN TRAILBLAZERS, headlined by a writeup and big photo of Van Jones: Leaders in sustainability are forging the energy, food and design systems of tomorrow.

JiB-- the new debt is highly disproportionate to Blue Hells because of the Medicaid scam, aka Obummercare, plus of course Obummer Phones, food stamps, Soc Sec Disability. $$2-3 TRILLION has easily gone into the Blue Hells from the 2009 Dem Orgy of socialism.

Old Lurker

For JiB from the Free Beacon: "The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention."

During the last presidential campaign, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan both released extensive medical records which, according to the New York Observer, “reveal[ed] more than probably anyone ever wanted to know,” including their weight, exercise routines, diet regimes, and what drugs they were on.

No. And even if she did, who would believe her?

ON the latest Baltimore perp with a gun, live footage from either CNN or FOX, I forget which, was showing a cop standing above the gun, with his right toe partially on the handle of the gun, to ensure that it was not moved or tampered with by the onlookers, as he waited for the detective types to show up and take possession of the gun as evidence from the scene. It appeared to me that the cop was well aware of keeping the gun secure so that fingerprints would be able to be taken from the gun.

The chick noted that he seemed confused during the interview and both she and Tapperhead resolved that it was because he had no idea his trained peacenicks would harm a soul.

Full Hearing: Arpaio V. Obama Oral Argument On Obama's Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty


Today the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit held oral argument on Sheriff Joe Arpaio's lawsuit seeking to halt Obama's executive actions on illegal immigration. The hearing lasted a little over an hour.

If you forgot, Obama effectively granted amnesty to more than 5 million illegal aliens.

The case originally was dismissed by an Obama appointed judge.

Attorney Klayman made an impassioned argument in defense of the U.S. Constitution and separation of powers.
