“My attitude about the airliner over Ukraine and the border mess”
Borepatch for those who haven’t discovered his rantings.
Who can spot two (2) glaring errors in this?
If you are going to put something on the internet… Oh, never mind. Research is just too Haaard. I’ll bet her teachers made her feel special – even if they didn’t teach her anything.
From Chicago CBS Local: “It’s hard to believe It’s been 45 years since Lance Armstrong walked on the moon”
This is a very well-written essay about what it’s like to live in Israel while it’s under attack. Goldflam describes Hamas fighters. He calls them ‘Cowardly’ for hiding behind women and children.
From the Times Of Israel by Uri Goldflam:
Me and my (little) PTSD
Last night, about 11 PM. Kids asleep. My wife and I had just finished watching an episode of Orange is the New Black (great show, by the way). Turned in for the night, lights out. Quiet. … THUD. A distant but very distinct THUD. “Did you hear that?” my wife asked. My eyes were closed. “Yes, I heard that. Maybe an interception.” I lied. Quiet. … THUD. THUD. THUD. Every cell in my body knew exactly what we heard. In my mind I went back to summer 2006.
I was in a Paratroopers reserve unit. We spent a few weeks guarding the Syrian border, then got marching orders into Lebanon. It was the final push towards the end of the war. Everything is still very clear: the weight on my shoulders (33 kilos/73 pounds), the feeling of my loaded assault rifle, the crunch under my boots. The soundtrack of war. Ours. Theirs. The quick rests and sleepless sleeps. The sound of incoming missiles, the comfort of a good cover. The smell of burnt flesh, a detached arm, flaming truck, charred tank. Helicopters come in, running with the wounded on stretchers. Gunfire. Incoming mortars. The first one long, the second short, the third… . In two separate incursions we took our positions, engaged Hezbollah, won the battle. We lost men. Fathers, brothers, sons. We stayed in local homes, tried not to do unnecessary damage, not always successfully. Pulled out. It’s been quiet on the Lebanese border since 2006. What’s left? Just me and my little PTSD. It helps me cope.”
This trailer is pretty effective. If the full-length feature is anything like it it will cause a lot of heads to explode. “We were promised catastrophe. It didn’t happen.” That’s a pretty good argument.
What is missing from the trailer is the ‘Why’ of the climate hustle. Of course it’s less than two minutes long. I would be interested to see just how deep into the ‘Why’ the full film goes.
“An upcoming documentary aims to debunk global warming.”
The documentary is called “Climate Hustle” and comes from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a non-profit public policy group and parent organization of Climate Depot.
Spokesman Marc Morano says the documentary, which will be out in the fall, will challenge the “conventional wisdom” of man-made global warming.”

Remember the story about the United Nations school in Gaza where they discovered Hamas rockets were being stored? The UN took them out and gave them back to Hamas. All twenty of them.
A United Nations agency that last week found rockets in a Gaza school operating under its auspices has handed that weaponry over to Hamas, Israeli officials said Sunday, accusing the organization of actively helping the terrorist organization potentially attack Israeli civilians.
“The rockets were passed on to the government authorities in Gaza, which is Hamas. In other words, UNRWA handed to Hamas rockets that could well be shot at Israel,” a senior Israeli official told The Times of Israel.”
Whose side is the United Nations on?
From the Times of Israel
And well they should. His actions are frequently inappropriate. The other day he made a speech in which he told Russian leader Putin what he should do and how he should deal with the shoot-down of flight 17 in Ukraine. He didn’t follow up with, “Or else”. He just jacked his jaws inappropriately – and then went on to plan his next vacation.
“Is Obama’s constant, inappropriate laughter a sign that he is suffering from a mental disorder?
One of the classic signs of serious mental illness is “inappropriate affect.” In this context, “affect” is the emotional face we present to the world. To the extent that a narcissist’s only emotional fixed point is his own need, most of a narcissists affects are actually faked, but that doesn’t mean they’re inappropriate.
The narcissist knows that it would harm his best interests if he were to giggle uncontrollably at a funeral or pick a fist fight with a patient in hospice. Normal people wouldn’t even think of doing such things (outside of the comedy universe), but a narcissist might want to do both, only to stop himself for fear of breaking cover.
Sometimes, though, narcissists, and other sick people, are so disconnected from reality — including their reality of their own best interests in a given situation — that they can no longer stop themselves from presenting an entirely wrong emotional face to the public. That completely disconnected emotional presentation goes by the shorthand title of “inappropriate affect.””
Consider the meeting President Obama had with Texas Governor Perry. The photos taken during that meeting are chilling:
Look at Obama and then look at Perry. Perry understands just how inappropriate the President’s laughter is.
Bookworm has a detailed discussion of this phenomenon. He has done some investigation and found that there are detailed reasons why people laugh inappropriately. They are:
Temporal lobe injury
And he cites his sources.
It is interesting how media are beginning to question this President’s actions. He has said and done inappropriate things all through his time in office but lately it has become much more obvious.
Why can’t we all just get along?
It must be okay for Hamas to bomb Israel with rockets. It’s not okay for Israel to try to stop it.
Only the people responsible can know for sure why Palestinian militants would use civilian buildings, but any real possibility is bad. Maybe militant groups use civilian buildings like this UN school simply because they don’t mind the danger this creates for the Palestinians they claim to protect. Maybe it’s because they are hoping that the rockets will be safer in a UN school because Israel won’t want to bomb it, which means using Palestinians kids and teachers as human shields. An argument you hear from Hamas’s harshest critics is that they are hoping Israel will target the schools, thus rallying people to their side.
None of these speaks well of militant groups or the effects of their rocket campaigns on Palestinian civilians. It is not a great secret that “resistance” campaigns by groups like Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad bring far greater harm to Palestinian civilians than they do anything resembling liberation, but this incident is a small glimpse of how, and of the effects of militant groups firing hundreds of rockets into Israel from densely populated neighborhoods in Gaza.
Here’s the thing, though: while incidents like this force Israel to decide between bombing civilian structures or allowing Hamas to use those structures as rocket storage depots, it does not actually force Israel to choose to bomb civilian buildings. It is entirely within Israel’s power to not bomb civilian buildings.”
Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley warns about the rise of the ‘Uber Presidency’. In this video he explains that Congress is willingly handing its authority over to the President – and that is wrong. He says,
Our system is changing and this body is the one branch that must act if we’re to reverse those changes. We’re seeing the emergence of a different model of government, a model long ago rejected by the framers. A dominant presidency has occurred with very little Congressional opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevant. Now many members are contesting the right of this institution to even be heard in federal court. This Body Is Moving From Self-Loathing To Self-Destruction”
Why would they do that? Why would Congress not merely stand by while the Executive strips their powers, but embrace the act? They are making themselves irrelevant.
Turley says part of it is because we have grown impatient with the checks and balances and are falling victim to a person who says, “I can get it done”. He warns that that is dangerous and not at all what our founders sought. In fact they warned against it.
There is a transcript of Turley’s remarks at Real Clear Politics.
Megyn Kelly asks him some excellent and pointed questions in this next video. His answers are powerful. At the end Kelly recommends Turley’s blog. Here is a link to it. He deals with a wide range of legal subjects. I have bookmarked it.
Ah, the lies Senator Boxer tells. This is from her Facebook page. The responses, almost without exception, call her out for lying.
She says Hobby Lobby will pay to provide Viagra but not birth control pills. That is a lie. Hobby Lobby only objected to providing abortifacients, medicine that induced abortions. A few of the responses:

Looks like every cop in California showed up – and shot at the suspect.
“300 shots fired”.
Sickness. That’s a different take but he’s right. There is something wrong with a person who is bent on the destruction of the greatest nation in the entire history of our world.
Others have spoken of Obama’s sickness. He has been called a narcissist and a sociopath. Medical Doctors who are trained in mental disorders have said these things.
It is beyond understanding how the leader of the free world ignores attack after attack on our people and the people of our allies.
You know what ladies and gentlemen? Let me be the first to say it and I’ll take whatever slings and arrows I get. This is a very sick man this Obama. There’s something out of kilter, there’s a screw loose. Something’s not right if you’re president of the United States and something like this happens. Our ally Israel is at war. Where an airliner shot out of the sky. And let me say one other thing as I get to one after another here. I am sick and tired of the propagandists for Putin, who is a fascist. I am sick and tired for the apologists who [say], ‘Oh well, has a right to Crimea. Oh, Georgia. Oh, Ukraine. Whatever.’ Bullcrap.”
Everyone, even Chris Matthews, objects to President Obama’s casual, callous reference to the shoot down of Malaysian flight 17 over Ukraine. The reference was short and unfeeling. Then he went back to fundraising and schmoozing.
Matthews became nostalgic for an earlier time and an earlier President; a President who said what Americans were feeling. That was a President who made us all proud to be Americans.
Matthews is losing the tingle.
“Golf is just too haaard!
This reminds me of the time we discovered a pinball machine that let you win all the time. Two games and it was no fun any longer.
After watching this I think they may be serious.
Of course it comes from that moonbat haven, southern California.
The White House isn’t into subtlety.
” The image, taken by White House photographer Chuck Kennedy, was posted to the White House Flickr feed this week.”
President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of his own.
“You’re not going to get me impeached, are you?” Obama said, according to people in a private White House meeting late last month. “Because there’s lots of other things I want to do besides immigration.”
The president was joking … mostly. Obama said he was frustrated that Republicans wouldn’t talk about passing an immigration bill but were openly toying with an impeachment vote over the notion that he would use his executive powers to circumvent Congress.”
