2015 – Enter Laughing

So you want good news? You want predictions? You want to forget that there are still two more years of incessant boobery from stinky B.O.? We’ll put a pink glow on your cheeks.

Close your eyes and imagine a president who spoke a tough truth to a tough audience on a tough topic instead of taking a three week vacation. Hey! We found the president. It’s the president of Egypt.

On New Year’s Day the president of Egypt lambasted Muslims much like we have for a long time. We’ve got us a president!:

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi made an extraordinary speech on New Year’s Day to Cairo’s Al-Azhar and the Awqaf Ministry calling for a long overdue virtual ecclesiastical revolution in Islam.  This is something no Western leader has the had the courage to do, certainly not Barack Obama, despite his Muslim education.

Accusing the umma (world Islamic population) of encouraging the hostility of the entire world, al-Sisi’s speech is so dramatic and essentially revolutionary it brings to mind Khrushchev’s famous speech exposing Stalin. Many have called for a reformation of Islam, but for the leader of the largest Arab nation to do so has world-changing implications.

Today is the first day of jury selection in the Bastard Boston Bomber trial so we will quote just a tasty morsel of the President’s speech:

Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live? Impossible!

I am saying these words here at Al Azhar, before this assembly of scholars and ulema—Allah Almighty be witness to your truth on Judgment Day concerning that which I’m talking about now. [snip]

I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I say it again, the entire world is waiting for your next move… because this umma is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.

The president of Egypt is kicking ass. The asses he is kicking are known to kill presidents of Egypt (such as Sadat) so it takes some whole lotta courage to say this to that audience. We’re not expecting much in the way of results from this one speech. We suspect Egypt will have to chop Muslim Brotherhood necks before long. But we’ve called for Muslims to stand forcefully against the Muslim creeps and we therefore applaud the Egyptian president.

Now, contrast and compare the president of Egypt with a certain boob currently occupying the White House and various government owned golf courses. Does the Boob regularly applaud Nigerians in America who place a high value on education and regularly excel? Does the Boob isolate the Eric Garners and Mike Browns who threaten their communities with criminal acts? Or does the Boob prefer to elevate fellow race-baiter and shakedown artist Al Sharpie:

Want to influence a casino bid? Polish your corporate image? Not be labeled a racist?

Then you need to pay Al Sharpton.

For more than a decade, corporations have shelled out thousands of dollars in donations and consulting fees to Sharpton’s National Action Network. What they get in return is the reverend’s supposed sway in the black community or, more often, his silence. [snip]

“Al Sharpton has enriched himself and NAN for years by threatening companies with bad publicity if they didn’t come to terms with him. Put simply, Sharpton specializes in shakedowns,” said Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal & Policy Center, a Virginia-based watchdog group that has produced a book on Sharpton.

And Sharpton, who now boasts a close relationship with Obama and Mayor Bill de Blasio, is in a stronger negotiating position than ever.

“Once Sharpton’s on board, he plays the race card all the way through,” said a source who has worked with the Harlem preacher. “He just keeps asking for more and more money.”

Sharpie has shaken down companies and governments on behalf of gambling interests, car companies and just about anything a scam artist can devise. We recall the Sharpie attempted shakedown of Sony Music for millions with desperate Michael Jackson charging “racism” and claiming that his extortion attempt would help all black people.

Cocaine dealer Al Sharpie did not invent the shakedown routine. Before Sharpie there was Jesse Jackson and the “Wall Street Project”. A good scam never dies, only the names of the players change.

Because Boob Obama does not denounce criminality so as to not upset his fanboys and fangirls we get the comedy of the Brunch Bunch. The Brunch Boobery involved restaurant disruptions which likely only antagonize L.A. and New York liberals grazing on light fare and mimosas. It would have made some, not much, but some sense if the Brunch Bunch swarmed a Chick-fil-a. But of course these protests are not about common sense.



According to a Reuters report, this Monday a New York judge will hear arguments on whether to disclose grand jury testimony in the Garner case. We hope the judge agrees to violate the sanctity of the grand jury in this case just so that we can be proven correct in our immediate analysis that the initial news reports on this case would once again be proven to be entirely erroneous. Pants up, don’t loot.

Good news? Well, global warming or climate change or whatever we are supposed to call it now is still paused at best/worst. The “pause” started in 1998 and still paused. Should we give credit to Bill Clinton? Or should we castigate and spit on Bill Clinton or whoever it was that hit the “pause” button? That darn Bill Clinton might be the death of us all if global warming is not a killer but a savior. Say whaaat????:

“While the climate of the earth has changed over the millennia as a result of natural factors – principally changes in the tilt and orientation of the earth’s axis and rotation, and in the shape of its orbit around the sun – those changes occur far too gradually to have noticeable effects over a period of mere decades. In their current phases, moreover, they would be gradually cooling the earth – taking us to another ice age – if they weren’t being more than offset by human-caused warming.”



That’s the White House Science Adviser John Holdren talking. So now, if we accept global warming should be blamed on human activity, we should be glad because the man made global warming has stopped glaciation and an ice age? So is the politically correct response to global warming (in the beginning of January as the cold sets in) a hearty Yay!??? Or is the politically correct answer a shivering “bring on the cold extinction of humanity”??? We’re as confused as Al Sharpton at a tax audit.

Speaking of tax audits, if you are oppressed by ObamaCare, prepare for a tax audit of your subsidy. ObamaCare will continue to provide many laughs this year. The first comedy on ObamaCare published this year is a history of ObamaCare from Steven Brill, with the apt title America’s Bitter Pill”:

Brill devotes fifty pages to another Obamacare shortcoming, the early malfunctioning of the Web site. He originally thought that the site would be a showcase for what government could do. But, on the train back from his initial round of interviews in Washington, he glanced at his notes and realized that he had been given seven different answers to the question of who was in charge of the launch of the federal exchange, including an “incomprehensible” organizational chart with four diagonal lines crossing one another and forming a “lopsided” triangle:

Should we be amazed, and disappointed, at how Obama treated the nitty-gritty details of implementing the law as if actually governing was below the pay grade of Ivy League visionaries?

Absolutely. This failure to govern will stand as one of the great unforced disappointments of the Obama years.

There’s a sucker born every minute and Brill must have been born on the two second mark. How anyone who purports to be smart could have thought that ObamaCare would float like a lotus on the lake is astounding. But there’s one born every minute… and that’s how Obama was elected.

Fools voting for a boob. Politico politely uses the word “donkey” but the subtext is “ass”:

The Democrats’ Donkey in the Room

Their biggest headache in 2015? How to talk about Obama.

It’s a typical Politico article written by an O.D. who was once and maybe still is on Hopium. There’s a bitchy title that masks the flattery of Obama in the text itself. For instance:

Democrats are grappling with the reality that the Obama presidency is nearing its end, and they don’t know what to say about it. That question, more than any other, will likely define the Democratic Party debate in 2015 as the next presidential race gets underway.

If President Barack Obama had approval ratings safely above 50 percent, and the middle-class was flush, Democrats would have no hesitation wrapping themselves in the Obama banner. Conversely, if Obama were presiding over an economic collapse, failed war or White House scandal, there would be as many proud Obama Democrats as Hoover Republicans.

Instead, Democrats will face an Obama record that can be interpreted as either a historic advance of liberalism or a colossal disappointment, and on which the public mood appears to be shifting back and forth across the line. Most recently, building on an improving economy and a decisive series of post-election moves like the new opening to Cuba, he has climbed back to dead-even in approval ratings, Gallup reported, after 450 days in negative territory. The choice depends on which data points you emphasize and, more importantly, where you think the trend lines are headed.

It escapes the notice of Politico that Obama’s numbers generally improve at every year end of his presidency. Maybe the rise in popularity is due to the weeks of vacation in December. But this we know, in every year of his presidency Obama’s numbers are in free-fall by March. In Summer’s heat Obama melts away. In 2012 Obama was saved in November by a savage attack campaign against an hapless Romney and hundreds of millions of dollars to fool the public. But even after reelection in November, by January 2012 Obama was once again in the toilet and not even memories of the recent Sandy Hook massacre could get a gun control measure passed.

Still Politico agrees with us that the issue in 2016 will be Barack Obama:

Should Democrats marshal all the positive data available to make the case that Obama’s record proved activist government worked, bolstering the case for an extra helping of liberalism to solve outstanding problems? Or should Democrats keep Obama at a distance, and treat the past six years as just another chapter in the decadeslong assault on the middle-class, proving that Obama’s watered-down compromises were incapable of eradicating the rules rigged for the top 1 percent? [snip]

Elizabeth Warren is presently leading Team Half-Empty. In her major speeches, such as her 2012 convention address, her July 2014 Netroots Nation keynote and her most recent Senate floor slam of Citigroup, Warren doesn’t cite much of the Obama record outside of the creation of her signature Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She goes as far as suggesting the problem of Wall Street dominance has gotten worse on Obama’s watch, saying things like: “Now the biggest banks are even bigger than they were when they were too big to fail in 2008.” Warren’s populist ally Sen. Bernie Sanders looks past Obama to rip “the status quo, which includes a 40-year decline of our middle class.” Neither excoriates Obama personally, but their rhetoric treats him at best as an impotent bystander to corrosive corporatism and his record as useless to the progressive cause.

Another voice inside the pessimist camp is Sen. Chuck Schumer, who recently made headlines at the National Press Club second-guessing Obama’s decision to prioritize health care reform before the economy healed.

Quo Vadis Hillary?

As the presidential race shifts into gear in 2015, much rides on how the expected Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton navigates these various poles in the Democratic big tent. Assuming she runs and maintains her wide lead among Democrats, she will have more say than anyone as to how Democrats define their post-Obama future.

The bitter 2008 primary fight has conditioned observers to look for daylight between Clinton and Obama, and surely she will pick her spots. But in an October appearance at The Economic Club of Chicago, she sounded like an Obama surrogate. The American economy “currently is the envy of the world,” she insisted, saying “the very hard choices the president and his economic team made early on in the administration laid the groundwork, both to prevent worse economic consequences and to begin the climb out of the deep hole we were in.” (Yes, she even turned her “Hard Choices” book title into praise for her former rival.) If she sticks to that message, she will be moving the Democratic Party away from both Warren and Schumer, tying it to a robust defense of the Obama record.

To say the least and in the most tepid manner possible, that seems like a loser strategy.

The writer of the Politico article is Bill Scher, a “senior writer at the Campaign for America’s Future” who is well connected. What is Bill Scher shilling for? What is the new “progressive” answer from the left to economic woe? What is the new “progressive” recipe for the economy?:

As the New York Times’ David Leonhardt wrote in November, the Democrats have lacked a clear “short-term” economic plan, because their inclination is toward reforms that lack immediate bang for the buck. “Some of the policies that Democrats favor, such as broader access to good education, take years to pay off. Others, like reducing medical costs or building new roads, have an indirect, unnoticed effect on middle-class incomes.” The same can be said of any unrigging of rules such as installing new bank regulations or eliminating corporate tax breaks. Leonhardt’s recommendation for a lightning strike is a middle-class tax cut. The Washington Post’s populist columnist Harold Meyerson proposes it be a payroll tax cut.

A MOTHERFU*KING TAX CUT!!!!!!! That’s the progressive answer to the excuses of why nothing Obama has done works so do what the Republicans suggested back in January 2009 – A MOTHERFU*KING TAX CUT!!!!!

Exit laughing. It’s gonna get funnier folks. In 2015 Obama will boob and boob again. That’s our very safe prediction.

  1. Sharyl Attkisson sues administration over computer hacking

    Army Field Band fires back at sportscaster’s tasteless tweet

    Never autoplay videos

    Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has sued the Justice Department over the hacking of her computers, officially accusing the Obama administration of illegal surveillance while she was reporting on administration scandals.

    In a series of legal filings that seek $35 million in damages, Attkisson alleges that three separate computer forensic exams showed that hackers used sophisticated methods to surreptitiously monitor her work between 2011 and 2013.

    “I just think it’s important to send a message that people shouldn’t be victimized and throw up their hands and think there’s nothing they can do and they’re powerless,” Attkisson said in an interview.

    The department has steadfastly denied any involvement in the hacking, saying in a 2013 statement: “To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never compromised Ms. Attkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use.”

    In the lawsuit and related claims against the Postal Service, filed in Washington, Attkisson says the intruders installed and periodically refreshed software to steal data and obtain passwords on her home and work computers. She also charges that the hackers monitored her audio using a Skype account.

    The award-winning reporter says she and her attorneys have “pretty good evidence” that these efforts were “connected” to the Justice Department. She said she was caught in a “Catch-22,” forcing her to use the lawsuit and an administrative complaint to discover more about the surveillance through the discovery process and to learn the identities of the “John Does” named in the complaints.

    “The Justice Department has not been very forthcoming with questions,” she said. “The question is, will anybody ever be held responsible?”

    The multimillion-dollar damage figure relates to her loss of privacy and that of her husband and family, she said.

    Attkisson learned through a Freedom of Information request that the FBI opened an investigation of the hacking case in May 2013, but says the bureau never interviewed her or even notified her of the probe.

    Attkisson resigned from CBS last March after complaining that she was increasingly unable to get her investigative stories on the air. She has published a best-selling book, “Stonewalled,” about her battles against the network and the administration as she investigated stories on such subjects as Benghazi, Fast and Furious and ObamaCare.

    Santorum summons former aides for 2016 meeting

    Washington (CNN)Rick Santorum has invited former aides to Washington next week for a “private briefing” on his plans for a possible 2016 presidential bid.

    The “Personal Invitation from Senator Santorum,” provided to CNN by a Republican who received it, was sent by a Santorum aide to more than two dozen “friends and former colleagues” from past campaigns and his time in the U.S. House and Senate.

    “As you probably know, RJS is seriously considering a run for the White House in 2016,” Santorum adviser Matt Beynon wrote in the email, using Santorum’s initials.

    “With the midterms and the new year behind us, he is beginning the final stages of preparation and consideration of another campaign,” Beynon wrote.

    Santorum, he wrote, “would like to give you a personal update on his plans” at a “private briefing” on Jan. 13 at the offices of the American Continental Group, a lobbying and public affairs office in Washington.

    With Huckabee in Santorum does not stand a chance. This is a joke candidacy which helps Jeb Bush by splitting up the conservative vote. Go away Rick you are a proven loser when you lost Pennsylvania.

  3. When I first heard about the hacking of Shary’s computer by the government, and the typical Obama denials I assumed the CIA was doing this to cover up Benghazi. But the defendant in this lawsuit is not the CIA but the Justice Department, which points to Fast and Furious and the IRS scandal. That is what they were running from. That is what they are trying to hide. Qui bono. This is yet another abuse of power by Eric Holder, a man who was once a federal district court judge, and has since gone rogue, in the worst possible way. This lawsuit is another nail in the Holder/Obama/big media coffin.

  4. Lincoln said if you want to test a man’s character, give him power and see what he does with it. Holder’s actions as Attorney General establish beyond cavil that he is not a man of low moral character, but a man of no moral character, like his alter ego Reverend Al Sharpton who is an unreconstructed brown shirt of the modern era.

  8. Messaging Beats Identity Politics? That is what the dickey bird claims. Prior to 2008 I would have thought so. In fact, that was the premise of Hillary’s 2008 campaign. She had sound policies, whereas Obama was the Wizard of Ooooz. But big media bamboozled the public into believing that he his identity as the first black president, the post racial president, the one etc. was the main thing. And the ignorant party robots bought it hook line and sinker. So Dickey bird, stop trying to peddle this nonsense. Brand is what matters—the marlborough man, followed by the edgy colors of benetton shill—people elect the image, not the person, and far less their policies. The average American has a third grade education when it comes to politics. They rush toward Madison avenue connived images, and run screaming from the room from things that go bump in the night.

    Messaging Beats Identity Politics

    By DICK MORRIS

    Published on DickMorris.com on January 5, 2015

    The real lesson to learn from the midterm elections of 2014 is that the Obama-Axelrod theory of aggregating individual constituencies into an electoral majority by special interest appeals can be defeated by shaping a national consensus.

    What do Latinos want? Immigration reform? Yes. But also a growing economy and a thriving country.

    Gays? The right to marry? Yes. But also a government that works.

    Single women? Abortion? Yes. But also a chance for wage growth and upward mobility.

    Students? Relief from the burden of loans? Yes. But also career opportunities.

    The formula of national messaging, if properly done, can trump the appeal to atomized special interest constituencies. That’s the lesson of 2014.

    In his executive order granting amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants, President Obama has moved decisively in the direction of special interested identity politics at the expense of national messaging. By increasing competition for low wage jobs and retarding income growth by pitting newly legalized immigrants against current lower middle class workers, he costs himself more votes than he gains.

    Two theories have always dominated American politics — moving to the center to gain national support vs. polarizing to generate turnout at the extremes. Bill Clinton’s victory in 1996 stemmed from the first strategy while Obama’s in 2012 was due to the latter approach.

    But the results of 2014 show the limits of the Obama strategy. At best, it provides a razor thin majority and leaves everyone else out in the cold. At worst, it falls short and totally disempowers those it sought to help.

    But, on an even deeper level, Americans are coming to realize that ethnic and gender targeting — the Balkanization of America — has grievous unintended consequences. It leads to Fergusons that, in turn, lead to Bedford Stuyvesant police assassinations.

    If the whole is not greater than the sum of its parts, America will be riven by division and discord which threatens the good of all interests and all peoples. Atomization comes at a price of a lack of social cohesion and common ground. It undermines a president’s capacity to govern and leaves his nation divided and bitter. Ultimately, we really do rise or fall together, a fact of which Obama’s political strategy fails to take account.

  9. Here is one that dickey bird has got right: the biggest reason that Hillary is not announcing while preparations are being made by CGI and RFH is she does not have to announce at this point, her candidacy is inevitable, she is garnering all the money and by not announcing she keeps potential rivals like Cuomo and Warren who would run if she bowed out frozen. This is exactly what I predicted a year ago. Big media of course hates this. They want a dogfight so that THEY can be the kingmaker and get their hooks into the nominee. The sheer predictability of this part is, frankly, one big bore.

  10. Axelrod’s moles had the info on John Edwards and they fed it to the National Enquirer. The current story on Bill is six (6) years old and he used it to back Hillary off from fighting Obama at the convention. Tod Purdam’s article in Vanity Fair was a further threat. I knew all about this. They had a deposition. The understanding was that it would never be used. But Obama and Axelod have decided to use it–and have fed it to the same source as they did with Edwards. What Obama is worried about is that she will eclipse him, and take back the party. He will do anything to prevent it. If nothing else, this should wake Hillary up and get her to stop shilling for Obama. I was speaking to Mrs. Smith just the other night and we were both worried that if Hillary stays the course, then she will end up where Sebelius is now. Anyone who goes to bed with Obama is sure to wake up with a terminal disease.

  11. Just to be clear, I have no idea whether the underlying charge was true–that Bill had sex with a minor. The lawsuit will answer that question. But the smear tactic is what I was aware of. Whether or not it was true, the concern was whether it would be believed in light of Lewinsky et. al. Then came the Purdam article. Then that strange concession speech about when you hear footsteps keep walking. Then the assassination of the leader of the Arkansas convention. Then the strange death of Hillary supporter Stephanie Tubbs Jones on the eve of the convention. Then that ridiculous scene at the convention where Schumer had to hold her up physically while she cast the decisive votes to Obama. This is dirty Chicago politics.

    Cuban Dissidents Still Behind Bars Despite U.S. Deal
    Castro regime has not released some political prisoners, recently detained others

    The status of 53 political prisoners in Cuba remains in limbo despite an agreement with the United States to release them, according to reports.

    President Barack Obama announced last month that he was easing travel and commercial restrictions on Cuba to seek a rapprochement with the regime of Raul Castro. The president said his administration would continue to push for the protection of civil and political rights on the island, where Raul and his brother Fidel have imprisoned dissidents for a half-century.

    However, at least some of the 53 Cuban political prisoners set to be freed as part of the U.S. deal remain in detention, and it is not clear when they will be released. Dissidents on the island told Reuters at the end of December that they have not been informed about who is on the list, and whether it includes common criminals in addition to political prisoners.

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday that not all of the prisoners have been released yet, adding that the “the Cuban government decided to undertake this on their own and it would take place in stages.”

    “There’s no reason to think they are walking back any part of the agreement,” he said.

    After questions from multiple reporters on Monday, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki declined to publicly confirm whether any of the political prisoners have been released.

    “Our view was never that the changes would take place and be implemented in a matter of weeks,” she said, adding that “it’s going to take a long time to change it.”

    Additionally, Psaki said the U.S. government does not plan to make public the list of imprisoned Cuban dissidents slated for release.

    We know who’s on there,” she said. “And the Cuban government knows who’s on there.”

    The United States also released three convicted Cuban spies under the deal in exchange for a Cuban who spied for Washington and imprisoned U.S. aid contractor Alan Gross.

    2 NYPD officers shot, wounded responding to Bronx armed robbery

    A massive manhunt was underway early Tuesday for the suspected armed robbers who shot and wounded two plainclothes New York City police officers in the Bronx. Both officers are expected to survive.

    The New York Post reported that the officers, identified as Andrew Dossi and Aliro Pellarano, had just ended their regular shifts when they were part of the response to a report of a robbery at a Chinese restaurant at approximately 10:30 p.m. local time. When they arrived, they were confronted by two suspects.

    Law enforcement sources told the paper that both suspects fired on the officers, hitting Pellarano in the arm and grazing him in the chest. Dossi was shot in the stomach and the arm. The gunmen then exchanged fire with other responding officers as they fled the scene on foot.

    The Post reported that the suspects carjacked a white Chevrolet Camaro and drove it a few blocks before crashing. They then got out and fled on foot. A source told the Post that a weapon was recovered near where the car crashed.

    Both officers were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, and the Post reported that Dossi was in surgery early Tuesday morning.

    What will the Brunch Bunch say?

  15. After the sad NYPD news here’s a laugh at the expense of ObamaCare defenders, if any are left:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/06/us/health-care-fixes-backed-by-harvards-experts-now-roil-its-faculty.html

    For years, Harvard’s experts on health economics and policy have advised presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard faculty, and the professors are in an uproar.

    Members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the heart of the 378-year-old university, voted overwhelmingly in November to oppose changes that would require them and thousands of other Harvard employees to pay more for health care. The university says the increases are in part a result of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act, which many Harvard professors championed.

    The faculty vote came too late to stop the cost increases from taking effect this month, and the anger on campus remains focused on questions that are agitating many workplaces: How should the burden of health costs be shared by employers and employees? If employees have to bear more of the cost, will they skimp on medically necessary care, curtail the use of less valuable services, or both?

  16. “Brill devotes fifty pages to another Obamacare shortcoming, the early malfunctioning of the Web site. He originally thought that the site would be a showcase for what government could do. ”

    …people elect the image, not the person, and far less their policies.

    Hear! Hear!

    In fact, I’ve been saying for years that the issues don’t matter, it’s character and competence that matter — but that means matching the person with a true image of the person. Then the people will vote for the image and get what they want. The policies still don’t matter even in that case, because as the late Mario Cuomo said, “You campaign in poetry but govern in prose.”

    Editor’s note: The following column first appeared in the Washington Times.

    The now-consumed 2014 has been perfectly described by some commentators as the year when facts died.

    Politicians, mobs in the streets and their willing accomplices in the media swamped us with lies, obfuscations or riots manifest because, as author Thomas Sowell has noted, “What matters today is how well you can concoct a story that fits people’s preconceptions and arouses their emotions. Politicians like New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, professional demagogues like Al Sharpton and innumerable irresponsible people in the media have shown that they have great talent in promoting a lynch mob.”

    None of this is unique to 2014, however, nor is the aptitude to stir up a lynch mob the exclusive purview of politicians. It has been both the vocation and avocation of liberal media darlings for a very long time.

    Issues of character inform everything we do. Hypocrisy doesn’t sneak up on you once. It’s part of how you relate to the world.

    In 2014, with almost perfect timing and illustrating the farce of the left, a liberal favorite — New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd — was exposed by the Sony email hack for just how much hypocrisy and contrivance rules her world.

    An Internet search of Ms. Dowd brings up a whole host of approving profiles and interviews over the years, with a particular column considered by her sycophants as one of her greatest accomplishments: the “takedown” of former New York Times investigative reporter Judith Miller.

    Ms. Dowd provided what many thought was the coup de grace against Ms. Miller when she wrote that column about her then-colleague at The New York Times, excoriating Ms. Miller for her coverage of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction WMD) leading up to the Iraq war.

    Ms. Miller, you see, had done the unthinkable. She reported what her investigation found on the issue, which also happened to be what the Bush administration and scores of other governments had also determined: Saddam was pursuing a WMD program and an untold number of those weapons were developed and undeclared.

    As her fellow liberal colleagues piled on Ms. Miller, Ms. Dowd’s column, dripping in ridicule and moral authority, condemned the reporter for being a “stenographer” for the Bush administration.

    Ms. Dowd complained Ms. Miller’s work “fit too perfectly” with what the White House had been asserting about WMD. In other words, Ms. Dowd accused Ms. Miller of being too close to her subject, essentially of colluding with others, of selling out to make someone happy or to further a shared agenda.

    It was absurd and petty. But what we didn’t know at the time was that it was also a perfect case of projection.

    In emails revealed late last year by the Sony Pictures hack, Ms. Dowd, The New York Times‘ supposed paragon of journalistic ethics, was discovered to have assured a Sony executive that she would be sure to make her “look great” in a column, and appeared to promise to show the column to the executive’s husband, a former Times reporter, beforehand.

    After the column ran, more emails were exchanged, with Ms. Dowd telling the executive, “I hope you’re happy … let’s do another.” After her subject declared the columnist her “favorite person,” Ms. Dowd gushed, “You’re mine! You’re amazing.”

    Ms. Dowd has since denied that she provided the column in advance. That’s possible. So was it a draft that was provided? And by someone other than herself?

    For those who might suggest this mistake of Ms. Dowd’s was a one-off, issues of character inform everything we do. Hypocrisy doesn’t sneak up on you once. It’s part of how you relate to the world.

    Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times from 2003 to 2011, confirmed to the left-wing blog Media Matters in 2011 that the newspaper’s treatment of Ms. Miller was due to politics and to assuage the leftist critics. Mr. Keller confessed, “I let a year go by when a lot of people, particularly people on the left, became disenchanted with the Times because they saw it as having been cheerleaders for the war. I think I could have saved the paper a lot of trouble and some damage by dealing with [Ms. Miller’s reporting] much sooner.”

    Facts do tend to be pesky things, as Ms. Dowd and the rest of The New York Times crew found in 2014.

    After years of morally superior, self-righteous preening, they had a problem: Judith Miller was proven right about WMD in Iraq. Revealed in a 2010 Wikileaks document dump, The New York Times finally wrote a 10,000 word story on “abandoned chemical weapons” in Iraq as it became evident our troops continued to be injured by them and their existence could no longer be denied.

    The New York Sun suggested the Times’ story be viewed as “journalism’s longest correction,” and was “designed to try to extricate the Gray Lady from all these charges about how President George W. Bush and his camarilla lied about the danger of Saddam’s chemical arsenal. It turns out that Iraq was littered with thousands of shells containing poison gas, like Sarin.”

    In that 2005 column attacking Ms. Miller, Ms. Dowd dramatically warned her readers if Ms. Miller remained a reporter at The New York Times, the newspaper itself would be at risk.

    Ten years later, now with the Times on the verge of collapse, forced retirements, layoffs and plunging ad revenue, the facts are teaching a lesson in irony and hypocrisy to Ms. Dowd and everyone else at the Times who jettisoned the truth to soothe jealousies and pander to politics.

  21. [Dick Morris]

    In his executive order granting amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants, President Obama has moved decisively in the direction of special interested identity politics at the expense of national messaging. By increasing competition for low wage jobs and retarding income growth by pitting newly legalized immigrants against current lower middle class workers, he costs himself more votes than he gains.

    Morris’ entire sentence bears evidence of messaging piracy.

    When you look at the terms of the executive order and the ensuing DHS Directive, it is obvious that Obola did not grant amnesty to anyone, no less 5 million illegal immigrants. Furthermore, I’m sure that no more than a handful of undocumented immigrants will bite at the bait Obola has offered: From their viewpoint, they have a lot to lose and very little to gain.

    But the idea that Obola has amnestied all these people is the message disseminated — successfully, I think — by the likes of Dick Morris and his right-wing buddies. It signals another Obola messaging failure, indeed; but the comic side of it is that the executive order is full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

  22. “What matters today is how well you can concoct a story that fits people’s preconceptions and arouses their emotions.”

    Yes indeed, and it’s far more true of TV than of printed media or even the radio.

  23. MoDo should feel embarrassed and exposed. It’s doubtful that she will, however. One has to have some contact with reality in order to recognize that he/she should feel embarrassed. MoDo is not long on self-insight. She’s certainly capable of ridiculing and personally attacking those whose ideology differs from hers, which is not the mark of a good journalist or writer. Rather, it’s the mark of a self-important hack. It’s much easier to write a personal attacks, long on sarcastic insults and short on facts than to actually do the research, seek the truth, and write as honestly as possible about a person or issue. Plus, it makes no points with the limo-libs, whose approval Dowd so desperately seeks.

    I think it’s being too generous to say Dowd feels morally superior and self-righteous. I think she’s much too shallow to be truly concerned about what’s right and moral. She’s more concerned with what makes her appear sophisticated, and soooo much more with it than regular people who don’t travel in the super-cool progressive circles she so much wants to be a part of. She’s all spin and no substance.

  24. wbb, I heard a snippet of an interview with Sharyl last week regarding the hacking. She said that the hackers were not just deleting some of her writing on computer, they were able to change her text and write what they wanted. She felt they just did so to let her know what they were capable of. Pretty damn scary.

    I don’t have a lot of faith that she can win in a law suit against the government, just because the deck will be stacked against her. But getting the info from discovery would seem to make it a worthwhile effort – win or lose, would it not?

    What struck me about it is, the dark mover behind the scene here is not the CIA, it is Obama’s henchman Holder. He is well on his way to becoming the Judas Iscariot of our legal system. And everybody knows it. Something will come of this.

    Copperhead will survive, for now. But now that he and McConnell have the power they have no excuse when they fail to pass legislation beneficial to the American People, whereas before, they could blame blame Reid. The puts them in a ticklish position as the next presidential election gets closer.

  27. Feels like wbb’s prediction holds. So many names were added to list last minute, so there was not any chance that the front runner could win. Bastards. This from Trey sets a reality.

    Rep. Gowdy (R-SC) released this statement on the Speaker vote:

    “A cancelled flight, due to weather, from South Carolina to Washington this morning regrettably prevented me from being in Washington for today’s Speaker vote. I apologize to my constituents and my colleagues. My wife and I were traveling this morning in an effort to minimize the amount of school she (a 1st grade teacher) and our daughter (in high school) would miss.”

    “Had our flight not been cancelled, I would have voted for our Conference nominee, John Boehner. The position of Speaker of the House is a difficult job as evidenced by the fact that so few members seek the position. Speaker Boehner was approved overwhelmingly by the Conference in November. In fact, not a single other name was placed in nomination.”

  28. There should now be other voters realizing as we did in 2008: there is no representation available to us.

  29. I’ve been saying for years that the issues don’t matter, it’s character and competence that matter — but that means matching the person with a true image of the person.
    ————–
    You are kidding.

    Right?

    If character and competence were the key to the city, then explain to me why Hillary lost to Obama in 2008.

    The thing that counts in the brand.

    People voted for brand Bush because he was the Marlborough man, the nice guy they wanted to have a drink with.

    Character and competence had nothing to do with it.

    People voted for brand Obama because he was the black messiah who would wash away their guilt, and make the waters of the rded sea part.

    Not only did character have nothing to do with it, but if they had spent a little time reflecting on his past history, his affiliation to Chicago, his racial politics, and his carrying the water for the elites, they would have seen his candidacy was exactly what Bill Clinton said it was—a fantatasy.

    Actually it was worse. It was and is a nightmare in red.

    In a functional political system character and competence would indeed be the deciding factor on who gets elected.

    But in a system run by the elites it runs on protecting their interests.

    Washington DC and big media are just one big Borgia Court, as Glenn Greenwald, an honest man of the left, wisely observed.

    And, in keeping with that sentiment, there is this echo from 500 years ago—lest we forget:

    *There is such a difference between the way men act, and the way they ought to act, that anyone who forsakes what is, for what ought to be, will be ruined.”—-Niccolo Machiavelli (The Prince)

  30. Different topic:
    ..Sandy Rubenstein was cleared of a rape accusation Monday, but not before one final, potentially humiliating revelation emerged about his ex-pal Al Sharpton.
    A prescription for the sex pill Viagra was found in Rubenstein’s apartment — but it was issued in Sharpton’s name, a police source told the Daily News.
    A shocked Sharpton initially said he was unaware of a doc’s note for the little blue pill that treats erectile dysfunction.
    “I don’t know anything about that, no, I don’t know anything about that,” Sharpton said, after a speechless second.

    The ethic cleansing of conservatives by the Republican Part establishment is folly.

    The above quote from Julius Caesar says it all.

    Now that they have the power, now that they no longer have Mr. Peepers as an excuse

    They must govern for the people.

    Which is something they cannot do.

    Why not?

    Because they are living a fraud.

    They present themselves as the party of limited government

    But they have to feed their donor—so they when they govern its all about big government, and annihilating conservatives.

    And when they fail in the broad light of day, their constitutents will desert them in droves.

    This must be done, however, as a fait a compli

    Which does not read if you fail to do X then I will leave, but rather

    I have left because you failed to do X as you promised.

    Tell me what are you willing to do to get me to come back.

    If it were me I would form an exploratory committee

    Big media would jump on this because they are determined to destroy the Republican Party anyway

    But it would make establishment republicans work hard to get the genie back in the bottle.

    And instead of being marginalized, conservatives could write their own ticket

    Unless the RINO can figure out how he can win without the base

    Which is the very thing that John Elias Bush (JEB) and that useless Huntsman have been conspiring about/

  32. After weeks of saying nothing, Billy deBlasio held a presser yesterday and forcefully stated that cops were disrespectful to funeral. People with normal feelings feel sorry that he’s hounding NYPD so much, and their guys have quit hollering back.

    Enter karma. As admin noted earlier, two more NYPD shot overnight. And the mayor stopped by to see one of them today. And

    Shot Cop to De Blasio: Get Lost
    One of the two cops who was shot chasing down suspected robbers Monday night isn’t happy that Mayor Bill de Blasio visited him in the hospital. Andrew Dossi, 30, was paid a visit by NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton and the mayor at St. Barnabas Hospital. “He wasn’t too happy about the mayor’s visit,” said his father, Joe Dossi. “He deals with some crappy people every day and [is] getting no support [from the mayor]. Come on. These are the guys in the trenches dealing with anything and everything.” One of the suspects is reportedly in police custody, according toCBS2 in New York.

  33. Boehner won/

    And already, he is the walking dead among the base.

    This poll confirms it.

    Even as John . . . and Mitch celebrate . . .

    Because:

    “Our legions are brim-full, our cause is ripe. . .

    (And yet) “We, at the height, are ready to decline.”

    Poll: Republican Voters Dissatisfied With GOP Leadership

    Republicans’ trust in GOP leadership is dwindling, according to a poll conducted by EMC Research in the days leading up to 2015.

    The national survey of more than 600 Republican voters found a majority wary of embracing incumbent House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. (Full results at the end of this story.)

    Boehner, who will face a challenge from members of his own party in Tuesday’s speaker vote, fares worse than McConnell in the poll. Sixty percent of Republican voters say they want someone new rather than Boehner.

    Only 25 percent of voters favor putting Boehner and McConnell in leadership positions. Even fewer—16 percent—want both Boehner and McConnell to serve in the House and Senate’s top jobs. According to the poll, 53 percent want neither or would prefer to see new party leadership.

  34. Haahvard is pissed. Having jumped on the O’care bandwagon – not because they knew what the bill said, but because it was, after all, OBAMAcare – the faculty of Harvard, having recently realized health care will cost more, are now less than thrilled with the law.

    Harvard profs helped design Obamacare—and now that the reform is hitting university health plans, their colleagues are furious.

    John Allen Gay
    January 5, 2015

    William F. Buckley famously proclaimed that he’d “rather be governed by the first two thousand names in the Boston telephone directory than by the two thousand people on the faculty of Harvard University.” Buckley’s point was that the common man can be wiser, for he can’t stray far from common sense without suffering, while the intellectual is in danger of burying his common sense under abstract theories and well-footnoted daydreams.

    But sometimes even the thickest clouds of pure reason can’t mask reality forever. Sometimes the elite cannot insulate themselves from the common man’s reality. They get a rude awakening, and suddenly the common man and his common sense sound a lot more sensible. The two thousand people on the faculty of Harvard, to adapt Buckley’s phrase, suddenly start to talk a lot like the first two thousand names in the Boston phone book.

    That is, in fact, exactly what’s happening now. Obamacare, the sort of übertechnocratic administrative megaproject that sets learned hearts aflutter, has come to Harvard—and Harvard profs aren’t happy. The New York Times, the paper of record for Ivy League imbroglios, fills us in:

    Members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the heart of the 378-year-old university, voted overwhelmingly in November to oppose changes that would require them and thousands of other Harvard employees to pay more for health care. The university says the increases are in part a result of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act, which many Harvard professors championed.

    Faculty members charge that new cost-sharing measures are effectively a pay cut, one that “will be timed to come at precisely the moment when you are sick, stressed or facing the challenges of being a new parent.” They question why the richest university in the world—its endowment is bigger than Latvia’s annual economic output—is squeezing cash out of its scholars in a bid to control health costs.

  35. This article is from WashPo, and a stand-in for that asshole for all seasons Chris Cilezza. It predicts that a Hillary presidential campaign will embody a progressive feminist brand, which is, of course another change from 2008, where her brand was centrist and gender neutral. This could explain her reluctance to ditch Obama–if it proves out. (Note: one can only wonder why Jim would give an interview to the likes of Matt Bai).

    Jim Webb and the Democrats’ white-man problem

    By Nia-Malika Henderson January 5 at 5:01 PM

    In this Dec. 3, 2014, photo, former Virginia senator Jim Webb (D) speaks at the capitol in Richmond, Va., on Dec. 3. (Steve Helber/AP)

    Some think Jim Webb could be the liberal Democratic alternative to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Perhaps it’s more likely, though, that Webb could position himself as something the Democratic Party — or any party, really — hasn’t seen in some time: the vocal champion of the working-class white man.

    The former Virginia senator offered this critique of his party to Matt Bai over at Yahoo!, and it sounds like something that you might hear on the campaign trail going forward.

    “I think this is where Democrats screw up, you know?” Webb said. “I think that they have kind of unwittingly used this group, white working males, as a whipping post for a lot of their policies. And then when they react, they say they’re being racist.”

    Rather than run as a liberal (which he is not, in a whole host of ways), Webb could run as a kind of anti-Hillary. He would be an explicit counter to the sort of progressive, feminist narrative that would inherently undergird a Clinton run. He would also be the anti-Obama, a break from the sort of identity politics around race, gender and ethnicity that have, in Webb’s telling, excluded working-class white men.

    (A white woman running for president after the nation’s first black president could certainly underscore the “what about us” feeling among this demographic.)

    This group has been something of the topic du jour lately, with a decades-long decrease in manufacturing jobs and an identification with the Republican Party so apparent in the midterms that it has left Democrats looking for answers (again).

    President Obama weighed in on the plight of the working-class whites in an NPR interview, saying: “There’s a legitimate sense of loss, particularly among men, who have seen manufacturing diminish; construction has been in the tank.”

    You know, part of my responsibility then is to communicate directly to those voters. And part of the Democratic Party’s job is to communicate directly to those voters and say to them, “You know what? We’re fighting for you.”

    Webb, who won a Virginia Senate seat by the slimmest of margins in 2006, suggests that he is the Democrat who can communicate directly to those voters. Webb’s “whipping post” construct also appeared in a 2010 piece for the Wall Street Journal called “Diversity and the Myth of White Privilege.” In the piece, he argued against race-based diversity programs like Affirmative Action and said that poor and working-class Southern whites have been ignored by policy-makers and lumped together into “a fungible monolith.” He wrote about the lack of college degrees in this group, painting a more diverse picture of white America.

    Contrary to assumptions in the law, white America is hardly a monolith. And the journey of white American cultures is so diverse (yes) that one strains to find the logic that could lump them together for the purpose of public policy.

    He said to Bai that white working-class men are from “inclusive cultures, they are dignity-driven cultures, honor-driven cultures,” and that they vote Republican because “at least they see that there they will have some respect and some response.”
