BARACK OBAMA RECEIVES KISS OF DEATH: FORMER JIMMY CARTER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR ENDORSES OBAMA OVER CLINTON

According to Bloomberg.com...

"Zbigniew Brzezinski, one of the most influential foreign-policy experts in the Democratic Party, threw his support behind Barack Obama's presidential candidacy, saying the Illinois senator has a better global grasp than his chief rival, Hillary Clinton. "

Is this the very same man that served as the National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter, failed President and homebuilder, the man who personally did more to stimulate the rise of global Islamo-fascism than any politician alive?  The very same President who abandoned the men and women serving America in our embassy who were taken hostage by thugs and allegedly masterminded by Iran's current president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?   

"'Obama is clearly more effective and has the upper hand,'' Brzezinski, who was President Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, said. 'He has a sense of what is historically relevant, and what is needed from the United States in relationship to the world.'''

Is this more of the same crap he told Carter while the hostages remained rotting for 444 days and until Ronald Reagan resolved the issue a few minutes after being sworn-in as Carter's successor?

According to William J. Daugherty (Center for the Study of Intelligence , Central Intelligence Agency, Washington,        D. C. 20505) who was one of the hostages held in the Embassy...

"When the Embassy began reporting these events and citing growing indications that perhaps the Shah's grip was slipping, Dr. Brzezinski, and, by extension the President, became critical of the Embassy's reporting."

"The incumbent ambassador was replaced with William Sullivan, an experienced Foreign Service Officer (FSO) who had a reputation for dealing effectively with difficult situations. Sullivan's marching orders were to go to Tehran, put a lid on the unwelcome reporting, and get things back on track."

"But it soon became clear to him that Iran was in serious trouble, and with it the Shah's future. Dr. Brzezinski, meanwhile, seemed to be increasingly disregarding the information coming out of the Embassy because it did not conform to his strategic plans for Iran and the regional role the country was to play."

YOU OWE ME! I SNUCK INTO YOUR COUNTRY TWICE -- HAD AN ANCHOR BABY -- USED A FAKE SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER -- IGNORED A COURT ORDER -- VIOLATED A AIRPORT SECURITY PROGRAM...

With hundreds of activists marching in downtown Los Angeles to protest the deportation of Evira Arellano, the question remains: what is it that we owe you?

Arellano is personally protesting the separation of parents and children when the parents are deported. Yet she chose to leave her son behind with a "godmother" in the United States.

So what is it that I owe her? What do you owe her? What does society owe her?

To claim that she was enticed into breaking the sovereignty of the United States based on some vague "right to work" is crazy. In fact, it is more akin to a burglar who, after breaking into your house, demands a softer bed and better food while he awaits the police. CRAZY!

Is Jesse Jackson fronting for his "homeboy" criminals by disarming law-abiding citizens and leaving them to the mercy of roving violent gangs?

Nothing upsets me more than the lunatic ravings of do-gooder politicians and so-called community activists who confuse cause and effect. Especially when their protest efforts are designed only to placate their own self-serving, publicity-seeking, duplicitous, and thieving needs.

Here we have Jesse Jackson, the epitome of a self-serving, pseudo-religious con-man who has grown wealthy exploiting his own community in order to live the grand lifestyle, calling for the disarming of law-abiding citizens which would place them at the mercy of gun-toting thugs and violent criminals.

A personal reply to TN WALTZ: YOUR BASIC FACTS ON GLOBAL WARMING ARE NOT FACTS and I still think Al Gore is a hypocritical bozo.

In response to my previous blog entry, "Loony Liberal Leftist Global Warming Fanatics: Cow Farts & Moose Burps Endanger the Planet," TN Waltz wrote:

"Here are basic facts about global warming:

- atmospheric CO2 level (at 380 ppmv) is 35% higher than it has been over the 650K (and longer) year period preceding the 20th century when it varied between 180 and 300 ppmv.

- earth has warmed about 0.7(C) = 1.25(F) since 1976. This is Modern global warming.

- the oceans are showing signs of being saturated with the CO2 they can naturally absorb."

First, these are not facts -- they are observational findings which are subject to errors in methodology as well as any internal systemic errors.

As an observation, the atmospheric carbon dioxide levels in various parts of the country are interesting -- but no conclusion can be drawn from these readings other than the CO2 level fluctuates in nature.

While there are problems with historic global terrestrial temperature measurements, you very rarely find anyone willing to discuss the current satellite temperature data which differs from those of ground based measurements and may be more accurate and global than similar terrestrial findings.

To claim this phenomenon is modern global warming is a stretch. Modern is defined as what? Yes, there is some evidence of an upward trend in temperature measurements, but who among you can state, with some degree of certainty, that this is not a naturally occurring long-term cycle with periodic regression to some unknown mean value.   

As for the saturation of oceans with CO2, one must realize that there is a relationship ,which is more or less constant, between the atmospheric CO2 and the CO2 dissolved in the oceans. Due to vapor pressures, this is somewhat of a self-correcting feedback loop which varies according to local conditions.

Waltz goes on to say...

"- if it weren't for the greenhouse effect, the earth would be about 30(C) (54(F)) colder.

And, CO2 is the driver of the effect, whereas water vapor is an amplifying follower for our climate (on Venus, CO2 is pretty much the sole driver of the GHG effect). Therefore GHG effect  is very much real.

We're making it go beyond it's natural cycles seen over that last one million years, and hence we're placing the earth "off design", and from some of the fallout we're witnessing (Arctic sea ice melting out rapidly, to name a recent one), potential putting the system human being need to survive, in peril."

There is no dispute that greenhouse gases help trap heat and many observations and experiments have been used to define the phenomenon. The value for the temperature of the earth without an atmosphere is easy to calculate. Simply add the temperature coefficient derived from solar output less the amount of heat re-radiated into space from all non-black surfaces. The number, if you care, is -17 degrees Celsius or about +1.4 degree Fahrenheit.  For those so inclined, look at the work of Physicist John Tyndall in 1872.

However, depending on what studies you are following, the greatest GHG effect is linked to water vapor. The role of CO2 as a driver is highly disputed and from some studies, CO2 production seems to lag the rise in temperature by about 600 years. Again, nobody is disputing the GHG effect -- what is being disputed is the CO2 contribution. The relative GHG contributions of water vapor to those of CO2 is approximately ten-to-one, making CO2 a minor greenhouse gas. Consider the following statement carefully: if an increment in CO2 warms the earth by some measure, then the vapor pressure of water over the oceans also increases slightly. This is the variable that is so hard to quantify and which gives computerized climate simulation models their forecast variability. Which is why cloud formation, the visible manifestation of water vapor, is so vexing to climatologists... and mathematical computer models. 

The thought that we are pushing nature's cycles is ludicrous. First, nobody really knows or understands the parameters of these cycles. Second, the notion that man is placing the earth "off design" as if there were some grand scheme of things is not exactly a scientific finding. It should be filed under "philosophy" or even "wishful thinking." The local phenomenon that deals with arctic ice cycles cannot be used to provide a causal link to anything other than time, temperature, cloud cover and, possibly, barometric pressure. The thought that man could stop the arctic ice from melting is about as insane as thinking man can prevent the earth's tectonic plates from shifting.

Perhaps if all the loonies on the left jumped at a certain point, a change could be observed. Would that justify legislation to make sure that the loonies traveled to the right spot at the right time under the threat of criminal penalties and that taxation be increased to pay for the travel of those who are economically unable to afford a trip to that mythical right spot at the right time?

STUPID LEFTIST LOONY DEMOCRATS: PAY ATTENTION -- THIS IS GOVERNMENT TORTURE! WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE? WHERE ARE THE PROTEST MARCHES? IMAGINE WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO YOUR HERO, TED KENNEDY?

All of you who have endlessly protested our actions at Guantanamo and decried the mistreatment of prisoners at Abu Graib, pay attention: the person who is being savagely beaten by government officials in public was said to be a drunk and an adulterer. These are the same people who would bury an adulterous woman up to her waist, put a bag over her head and encourage everybody to throw stones at her head until she was dead. IS THIS THE RELIGION OF PEACE AND TOLERANCE? IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT TO BRING TO THE UNITED STATES WHEN YOU SPEAK OF SHARIA LAW?

WAKE UP YOU DUMMIES... THIS IS THE FACE OF THE ENEMY!  LOOK CLOSELY -- EVEN HIS FELLOW CITIZENS WILL NOT COME TO HIS AID TO HALT THIS BRUTAL TORTURE.

"Two police officers stood-by, their faces covered with balaclavas - each to administer 40 lashes. Both men then lashed Ghanbari, taking the cane back behind their heads to guarantee maximum impact, each stroke leaving a distinctive red mark and bruising on his back."

LINDSAY LOHAN PROVES RECKLESS DRIVING WHILE DRUNK AND POSSESSING COCAINE IS NOT BIG DEAL IN BEVERLY HILLS -- IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT ATTORNEYS. NICOLE RITCHIE SPENDS 82-MINUTES IN JAIL -- WE ARE ALL STILL AT RISK...

I live in an area populated by celebrities and executives of all types. One of my greatest fears, other than earthquakes and local brush fires, is getting hit by a drunk driver as they blindly and recklessly navigate winding canyon roads at high speeds. In the past few years there have been any number of expensive cars totally destroyed at high speeds including the famous  million-dollar Ferrari Enzo that was cut in half after hitting a bump on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) at 162 mph, the Ferrari Testarossa whose driver slammed drunkenly into a rock and killed himself and his passenger and, of course, the drunken Mel Gibson who was stopped on PCH before he could hurt himself or anyone else.

Now we find that Lindsay Lohan's lawyers were able to convince prosecutors to accept a plea bargain that calls for Lohan to spend a single day in jail, accept a 36 month probation, complete an 18-month alcohol education program, serve ten days of community service, pay hundreds of dollars in fines and complete a three-day county coroner's program which involves visiting the Los Angeles County morgue and speaking with victims of drunken drivers.

Considering that the county district attorney dropped the felony cocaine possession charges -- she had slightly under the chargeable limit -- she skated by on multiple counts of driving recklessly while under the influence of alcohol.

The Deputy District Attorney, Danette Meyers,  trying to sound tough claimed that if she drives drunk again Lohan would have her probation violated and receive a mandatory 120-day jail sentence. Big deal. And, of course, assuming she is caught in the jurisdiction of a California court. This means Lohan only needs to remain sober while driving in California and can do almost anything she pleases in another state.

KNOWLEDGE IS RESPONSIBILITY: ARE LOS ANGELES OFFICIALS HIDING THE TRUTH ABOUT HI-RISE EARTHQUAKE VULNERABILITIES?

I remember the January 17th, 1994 Northridge quake vividly as I was shaken awake in the most violent earthquake I have ever experienced. Located in West Los Angeles, between the collapsing I-10 Freeway bridge to the East and a collapsing medical building to the North, our home suffered a cruel fate, having moved off its foundation to such a degree as to be "red tagged" as being unsafe for human occupancy. An experience that I would rather not repeat in my lifetime.

And yet as I watched the television news, I see Dr. Lucille Jones, the noted seismologist who works for the United States Geological Survey and a member of the California Seismic Safety Commission, briefing a seismic safety panel gathered in Coachella Valley. Her words are extremely ominous as she describes the consequences of a large quake centered in California's Coachella Valley, southeast of Los Angeles, and located between two powerful and dangerous faults: the famed San Andreas fault and the equally powerful San Jacinto fault.  What made this briefing even more scary was the fact that she was describing an area that was approximately 300 years overdue for a major quake. Not one to be taken lightly, she described a quake scenario that could potentially topple buildings in Los Angeles.

One the day of the presentation, a magnitude 4.6 quake struck tens of miles from my present home. Enough to raise momentary concern as it was centered in the far reaches of Northridge. Followed a few days later by a more gentle 3.5 magnitude temblor.

Which made me think of my late friend Nick, a movie special effects guru and certified welder and his rants on welds in certain Los Angeles high-rise buildings. Nick was convinced that hundreds of welds were potentially compromised and that, at this late date, nobody was routinely re-inspecting the weld joints. Laughingly he proposed a weld-inspection business where everybody from the owner, the insurance company, the contractors architects and engineers hated you. Joking it was like being the fire marshal or designated safety officer on a small budget movie.

Considering that my sister works on the 18th and top floor of a West Los Angeles high-rise building, I decided to revisit the subject of high rise buildings and their suitability to ride out a severe jolt.

It all started with the January 17, 1994 Northridge Earthquake which registered a magnitude of 6.7 and lasted for approximately 15 seconds. When the shaking stopped, 51 people were dead and 9,000 people were injured. The loss of life was limited due to the quake striking at the early morning hour of 4:30 a.m when most people were still at home. This quake has been the largest and costliest quake in recent times, with $44 billion dollars in damage, 25,000 dwellings uninhabitable, 7,000 buildings red-tagged (no occupancy), 22,000 buildings yellow-tagged (limited access), 9 hospitals closed, 9 collapsed parking  garages, major structural damage to 11 roads into Los Angeles forcing closure, 2 bridges on the I-10, 3 bridges on the SR-118, 2 bridges on the I5 and  2 bridges on I5/I14 interchange collapsed.  22,000 people were left homeless.

No doubt a major catastrophe. But one, according to Dr. Jones, that may  be exceeded by a projected Magnitude 7.8 striking in the Salton Sea between the two Coachella faults.

But my  real concern involves a large number of "moment steel frame (high-rise) buildings" which suffered large and unexpected cracks. 

From an article written by Greg Brower which appeared in the 1994 LA WEEKLY NEWS...

"When the Northridge quake awakened Los Angeles on January 17, 1994,  it was considered at 6.7 magnitude a relatively moderate shudder. However, because of its location, it was the first true seismic test for many of L.A.'s 1,500 steel-frame buildings. At first glance, most edifices seemed to fare well, but a disturbing trend soon surfaced: Many of the interior beam-to-column connections had cracked, in some cases splitting all the way through. The problem first came to light in structures still under construction, like the Getty Center, which was then just completing steel framing. Engineers there found a series of cracked connections and decided to replace all of its original welds. Owners of completed steel-frame buildings thus learned of the threat, but determining the status of their own welds would require breaking through plaster or concrete just to get a look. Still, the damage had been done -- the long-standing myth of the seismic invincibility of steel has been questioned ever since."

Was there something about the construction of certain steel buildings that caused problems. You bet.

The cracked connections in the steel structures, known as "welded steel moment frame"  (WSMF) buildings seemed to have a single factor in common, up to 99% of the connections were all welded with a particular welding method and using a particular welding material which had been previously approved for the use under the city's rigorous building code. However, as subsequent events demonstrated, the welding material and the process were inadequate to survive a moderate earthquake. Perhaps the capabilities and the performance of the welding method and materials were oversold by welding vendors who had no experience with seismic properties of the goods that they were selling as being a cost effective construction technique.

Even after noting the cracked connections, there was additional controversy over who would pay for the repairs and even what constituted  a safe practice of repair and replacement.

Loony Liberal Leftist Global Warming Fanatics: Cow Farts & Moose Burps Endanger the Planet

"Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting."

"Norwegian newspapers, citing research from Norway's technical university, said a motorist would have to drive 13,000 kilometers in a car to emit as much CO2 as a moose does in a year."

"Much like cows (more...), bacteria in a moose's stomach create methane gas which is considered even more destructive to the environment than carbon gas. Cows pose the same problem. "

First it was the danger of cow farts and now it is moose burps... are these nut-jobs immune from ridicule? Do they not understand the meaning of the word "natural" as in "nature?"

While it is possible to draw statistical inferences from everyday occurrences, it is also possible as to be so stupid and blinded by a political agenda as to incorrectly evaluate the difference between cause and effect.

Let's consider just one example:  the proposition that drinking mother's milk or any other kind of milk in early childhood leads to illegal drug use in the child's teenage years.. If we examine teenage drug users and ask them if they were breast-fed or received any type of milk or milk

CIA REPORT IS WRONG: TENET WAS THE SYMPTOM, THE REAL DISEASE WAS AND IS PARTY POLITICS AND WAR BY PUBLIC RELATIONS

Using common sense analysis, it appears that the recently released unclassified 19-page version of a congressionally-requested report by the CIA's Inspector General overlooks one major issue in developing its conclusion:  Intelligence findings may have been colored, conditioned or reported based on domestic political considerations.

Clinton-appointee, George Tenet, as the Director of Central Intelligence, was to a large degree culpable for the failure to capture or kill bin Laden (and apparent lack of departmental leadership) as was his pal and fellow Clinton-appointee Sandy "the burglar" Berger; infamous for deliberately stealing classified documents linked to 9/11 from a secure facility.

For those not used to reading government reports: OIG refers to the "Office of the Inspector General" of the CIA, and "IC" denotes the intelligence community. UBL is Usama (Osama) bin Laden.

However, since leadership is one of the most easily changed elements of an ongoing Agency, it is of little relevance.

Although the following quote is referring to a specific action, I believe that it contains the very essence of the report's findings: that many individuals were guilty of errors of judgement, not following established procedures or of not  following through on their findings as to cause a systemic breakdown leading to a disastrous consequence.

image

However, in my humble opinion, the biggest problem facing the intelligence community today is not one of leadership, personnel, infrastructure enhancements, or data sharing,  although these are significant problems in and of themselves, it is the Administration's (past and present) consideration and handling of  intelligence based on party-line political or public relations considerations. Making policy or taking action based on how it would make the party leadership appear to the voting public and the ever-present, ever-vocal media.
