Prager is very perceptive. He notes simply and correctly, “Appeasers hate those who confront evil.”
There is no question about whether President Obama — along with Secretary of State John Kerry and the editorial pages of many newspapers — has a particular dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
But there is another question: Why?
And the answer is due to an important rule of life that too few people are aware of:
Those who do not confront evil resent those who do.”
The existence of a personal account that Hillary Clinton used to conduct government business as secretary of state was discovered by the committee and reported by the New York Times.
Clinton’s use of this personal account explains why investigations of the Benghazi terrorist attack — and her culpability in our diplomatic mission’s vulnerability there, the failure to heed warnings and the cover-up afterward — failed to find much email evidence of her direct involvement.
According to the Times, Clinton never used her official government email account at all. What’s more, she used exclusively one set up on the day of her Senate confirmation as secretary of state. This indicates premeditation in an attempt to deceive the American people by someone determined to fulfill her ambition to be the first woman to sit in the Oval Office.
The Times said that Clinton’s aides made no attempt to systematically preserve her emails on government servers as required by the Federal Records Act. Team Hillary is now trying to use the excuse that they thought their government recipients would archive the emails and that was thought to be good enough.”
This strange and eyeless creature is called Atretochana eiselti, or more commonly known as the Dickhead Snake. It is very large and according to some, it lives in the water. This creature is also a mystery, considering no one really knows where it comes from and how it survives with no eyes. Experts aren’t sure of its diet, but some have suggested clams. Also, scientists are unsure how it mates with others.
SCOTUS quotes Dr. Seuss in a decision of Constitutionality. Ridiculous.
In a 5-4 decision announced Wednesday, the Supreme Court ruled that the law was meant to apply only to records or information documents.
But in her dissent, Justice Kagan argued that fish should be included in the “tangible object” category of evidence the law describes.
“A fish is, of course, a discrete thing that possesses physical form,” she wrote. “See generally Dr. Seuss, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (1960).”
During oral arguments in November, things sometimes took a turn for the absurd, as justices debated the legal nature of fish and whether a fish could count as a record if information was carved into its scales.
He plead guilty to “unlawful removal & retention of classified material”. Seems like someone was just trying to utterly destroy him with this bullshit charge. He probably had classified materials in his attaché or computer bag and got hammered for it. Should have kept it in his pants. He dishonored himself and all of his years of service, just to get laid. Dumbass.
WASHINGTON, March 3 (Reuters) – Former CIA director and U.S. Army General David Petraeus has pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified information in a case arising from his affair with a female Army Reserve officer, the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday.
Documents disclosing Petraeus’s guilty plea were filed in federal court in Charlotte, North Carolina. An attorney for Petraeus, Robert Barnett, said he had no immediate comment.
A Justice Department investigation into Petraeus had focused on whether he gave the woman, Paula Broadwell, access to his CIA email account and other highly classified information.
Petraeus quit his post as CIA director in 2012 after the extramarital affair became publicly known. Petraeus also is one of the leading U.S. military commanders in recent times, having served as commander of American forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
Petraeus had previously said he did not provide classified information to Broadwell, who was writing his biography at the time of the affair.
‘Behind Every Blade Of Grass’ is allegedly a quote from Japanese Admiral Yamamoto during WWII. What he is quoted as saying: “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”
State Department spokesgirl Marie Harf tells us that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu doesn’t have a plan for dealing with Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions. Unlike her boss, Bibi has military experience and, also unlike her boss, he would never reveal a military plan before its implementation.
She also lied about the purpose of the talks the US is having with Iran. She said the goal of the talks is to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons.
Lying is what this White House and its spokespeople do best and most often.
We believe that it is in Israel’s security interest that we get a diplomatic agreement with Iran to prevent it from getting a nuclear weapon. I didn’t hear Prime Minister Netanyahu put forward any alternatives today and some of the alternatives we heard before to a negotiated agreement either put more sanctions on and they capitulate taking a military option. Many of those alternatives are wholly unrealistic – all experts agree on that.”
Today is the day that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is to speak to the Congress.

In a March 2, 2015 article in the Saudi daily Al-Jazirah, columnist Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj supported Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s decision to speak at the U.S. Congress against the upcoming deal with Iran. Al-Faraj said that Obama, “one of the worst American presidents,” is working to sign a deal with Iran at the expense of America’s longtime allies in the Gulf, and therefore Netanyahu’s campaign against the deal is justified and serves the interests of the Gulf states.”
Gotta be that most feared of all – Global warming.
Nope. Not Islam.
A new study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science provides the clearest evidence yet that human-induced global warming made that drought more likely. The study is the first to examine the drought-to-war narrative in quantitative detail in any country, ultimately linking it to climate change.
“It’s a pretty convincing climate fingerprint,” said Retired Navy Rear Adm. David Titley, a meteorologist who’s now a professor at Penn State University. After decades of poor water policy, “there was no resilience left in the system.” Titley says, given that context, that the record-setting drought caused Syria to “break catastrophically.”
“It’s not to say you could predict ISIS out of that, but you just set everything up for something really bad to happen,” Titley told me in a phone interview. Given the new results, Titley says, “you can draw a very credible climate connection to this disaster we call ISIS right now.”

I’ve noticed an anomaly in news stories that I’m sure that you have noticed as well. Never in my lifetime have there been so many news stories in recent history, of security breaches at the White House. The Secret Service has a new director as a result of the most notorious breach by an armed intruder who made it all the way to the East Room before being stopped. Now the Secret Service actually locks doors at the White House, which is a nice start toward hardening the facility against attack.
Yes, those breaches may be separate but are they unrelated? More and more I don’t think so. I think one of our Enemies is probing the defenses, discovering vulnerabilities and reaction times. This stuff doesn’t just happen, especially these latest attempts to infiltrate.
Construction of wind turbine farms across the globe has not resulted in a decrease in the need for conventional generation systems. They have been an expensive boondoggle whose only function is to enrich those who build them and those who give the public money to those who build them.
The breakdown of the operating hours of wind power output shows just how pathetic wind energy really is.
* 339.75 hours (= 14.2 days = 3.9%) saw zero wind (0 MW), no power was generated at all!
* 1403.50 hours (= 58.5 days = 16.0%) power output was under 7 MW (1% of rated capacity).
* 3614 hours (= 5 months = 41.3%) power output was under 5% of rated capacity
* 5308 hours (= 7.4 months = 60.6%) wind power was below 10% of rated capacity.”
R K Pachauri, who has been accused of sexual harassment, has resigned from the Prime Minister’s Council on Climate Change as well, a government statement today said.
“The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has accepted the resignation of R K Pachauri from the Prime Minister’s Council on Climate Change,” said the one line statement.”
The job must not have paid too well. Being vain about his receding hairline, Pachauri often wore a hairpiece made from a dead cat.
This is going to be a Week is going to be different. I’m feeling a little nostalgic. I’m actually going to pay attention to a little bit of what’s going on in the news. I actually believe that what we will see this Week are highly consequential events and they will be worth paying attention to.
Let me even go a step further…
I remember what I was doing on the evening of March 23rd 1983. I was watching a Speech. The content of that Speech was a subject that was having the greatest personal impact on my life at that very moment. Events related to that Speech directly shaped the course of my life.
This Week I expect to see a Speech that will be of great significance. The content of that Speech will be centered around a subject of equal importance. As it was in 1983 the subject of that Speech will be the single greatest threat that the world is faced with. Just as it was in 1983 it will be a “State of the War of Good -VS- Evil” Speech.
VERY unlike the March 23rd 1983 Speech it will not be the Leader chosen by the People of the United States who will be delivering that Speech. Our President is not capable of delivering such a Speech. He has a very different conceptualization of the Battle of Good -VS- Evil. It is so vastly different that he feels that he must lead the effort to bring about a “Fundamental Transformation” of this Country.
So it is that it will be the Prime Minister of Israel who will address our Nation this Week about the State of the Union of the Battle of Good -VS- Evil and it will be the first time in a long time that anyone with moral clarity spoke on the subject publicly ANYWHERE in Washington D.C. So yes, this week I’m feeling a little nostalgic.
Meanwhile there’s a lot of the traditional wringing of hands on the part of many of our Israeli friends. The wringing of hands is fun to watch. It’s born out of the best of intentions in most cases yet it’s still fun to watch.
Take it easy Israel. In spite of what you may have read, we aren’t a bunch of Vilde Chayas over here. We just seem to have a problem with electing them. We could use your help in defeating them in the next national election. In the meantime, make the right choice and re-elect Prime Minister Netanyahu. America needs him. It is clear to us that he loves our Country more than our President does.
We have two stories hitting the press here in the same week, not in the chronological order of the actual events described in the story. What makes it most interesting is the timing of the release of these stories. They are about two different events yet the timing of the release of these stories causes the stories to be mutually supportive. Each tends to support the validity of the other based on their timing.
Saudi Arabia grants Israel free airspace to strike Iran. That happened because the President threatened to shoot down Israeli aircraft if they attempted to fly through Iraq to hit their targets. The United States intends to sign a deal that grants permission to an Enemy of the United States since 1979, to develop their own nuclear weapons without interference from the U.S.
Our President has decided that the United States should be a friend to our Enemies and an Enemy to our Friends.
There’s some “Fundamental Transformation” for you.
No, he doesn’t love his Country. He never has. He never will. All his life he has idolized, been instructed in and has taken up the causes of our Enemies.
Why should today be any different?
Sleep well America. Your Enemies control you. That’s because there were sufficient numbers of our fellow citizens who decided on two occasions that it should be so. This house will not stand.
Texas A&M Study Rated Obama 5th Best President in America’s History. From a total of 44 US Presidents: Obama is rated as the fifth best. The A&M’s Public Relations Office released this statement “After almost six years in office, Americans have rated President Obama the fifth best President ever”.
