IS BILL O'REILLY MOVING LEFT AGAIN -- NO PRISON TIME FOR BOWE BERGDAHL?

bor

Here is a man who helps provide all terrain wheelchairs, also known as Track Chairs, to wounded and disabled veterans. Here is a man who openly supports the Wounded Warrior Project.

So why would he spit in the face of every honorable veteran, past, present, and future to say that if Bowe Bergdahl is convicted of the charges and specifications relating to his actions, he should receive any degree of mercy when there are others lying dead because of this man and his actions?

Talking Points Memo Excerpt

Why the Left Does Not Want Bowe Bergdahl Punished

By: Bill O'Reilly  (March 30, 2015)

bor33

“If Bowe Bergdahl is put on trial, it will be an acute embarrassment for President Obama personally.

Mr. Obama has a lot invested in this story.  As mentioned, he brought the sergeant's parents to the White House for a major photo op.

So for those who still believe in Barack Obama, the Bergdahl situation must go.

But of course it will not.  The trial will be held unless the sergeant agrees to a plea deal.

One final thing.  If Sergeant Bergdahl is convicted, I would not send him to prison.

I think we have to have some mercy here because the guy has suffered.  He did cause his own demise, but he has suffered greatly.

No honorable anything, no back pay.

But no vengeance, either.

And that's the memo.”

Click the link to read the full Talking Points Memo in context or to watch the video.

Bottom line …

Is Bill O’Reilly hanging out with the swells – the rich and powerful New York progressives – and are they warping his view point?

In yesterday’s Talking Points Memo, O’Reilly says alleged Army deserted Bowe Bergdahl should not get prison time and that we should show him some mercy. “No honorable anything [discharge]. No back pay. But no vengeance either.”

What the hell is O’Reilly talking about? Holding a man responsible for his actions on the battlefield has nothing to do with vengeance, only the maintenance of good order and discipline. 

Is this what O’Reilly means when he says he “looking out for the folks?”

IT IS TIME TO END POLITICAL CORRUPTION: STARTING WITH FEDERAL EXTORTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

If an issue cannot generate bi-partisan legislative support in the Congress, it appears that the progressive socialist democrats will attempt to force states to knuckle under to their extortion by withholding federal funds that rightfully belong to the taxpayers from which they were confiscated in the first place.

The existing facts are simple: global warming is nothing more than a hypothesis supported by deeply flawed computer models and statistically manipulated data, and extreme weather events are most likely attributable to ENSO [El Niño (La Niña) Southern Oscillation] than to global warming.

Winters, during the El Niño effect, are warmer and drier than average in the Northwest, northern Midwest, and northern Mideast United States, so those regions experience reduced snowfalls. Meanwhile, significantly wetter winters are present in northwest Mexico and the southwest United States, including central and southern California, while both cooler and wetter than average winters in northeast Mexico and the southeast United States (including the Tidewater region of Virginia) occur during the El Niño phase of the oscillation. <Source>

La Niña causes mostly the opposite effects of El Niño, above-average precipitation across the northern Midwest, the northern Rockies, Northern California, and the Pacific Northwest's southern and eastern regions. Meanwhile, precipitation in the southwestern and southeastern states is below average. This also allows for the development of many stronger-than-average hurricanes in the Atlantic and less in the Pacific. <Source>

ENSO causes extreme weather (such as floods and droughts) in many regions of the world. Developing countries dependent upon agriculture and fishing, particularly those bordering the Pacific Ocean, are the most affected.” <Source>

And according to another peer-reviewed climate study …

“We have shown that the Southern Oscillation is a dominant and consistent influence on mean global temperature.”

“Shifts in temperature are consistent with shifts in the SOI that occur about 7 months earlier. The relationship weakens or breaks down at times of volcanic eruption in the tropics, and meridional heat dispersal likely accounts for this.”

“The slight fall in temperatures prior to the Great Pacific Climate Shift can be attributed to the increasing dominance of positive SOI values (i.e., toward La Nina) leading up to that event and the rise in temperatures following the shift can be attributed to the dominance of negative SOI values since (i.e., a period of extended El Nino tendencies).”

“Since the mid-1990s, little volcanic activity has been observed in the tropics and global average temperatures have risen and fallen in close accord with the SOI of 7 months earlier.”

Finally, this study has shown that natural climate forcing associated with ENSO is a major contributor to variability and perhaps recent trends in global temperature, a relationship that is not included in current global climate models.

And, the science is far from settled …

Of course, not everyone agrees which negates the theory that the science of global warming is settled as per this comment by other climate researchers responding to the original paper in the manner that scientific inquiry is conducted. <Comment on “Influence of the Southern Oscillation on tropospheric temperature” by J. D. McLean, C. R. de Freitas, and R. M. Carter>

Governors need only acknowledge the existence of historical extreme weather events and the probability that such extreme weather events will occur in the future. It is intellectually dishonest and outright coercive that they acknowledge and support an unproven hypothesis in order to secure federal funding that is rightfully theirs.  

FEMA to deny funds to warming deniers -- States whose governors refuse to acknowledge climate change will not get preparedness aid.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making it tougher for governors to deny man-made climate change. Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster-preparedness funds only for states whose governors approve hazard-mitigation plans that address climate change.

The policy doesn't affect federal money for relief after a hurricane, flood, or other disaster. Specifically, beginning in March 2016, states seeking preparedness money will have to assess how climate change threatens their communities. Governors will have to sign off on hazard-mitigation plans. While some states, including New York, have already started incorporating climate risks in their plans, most haven't because FEMA's 2008 guidelines didn't require it.

Climate change affects droughts, rainfall, and tornado activity. Fracking is being linked to more earthquakes, he said. "This could affect state leaders across the country."

<Source: FEMA to deny funds to warming deniers>

Bottom line …

Pushing such public policy mitigation efforts such as carbon taxes, cap-and-trade arrangements, and other freedom-limiting public policies on the basis of an unproven hypothesis is not sound public policy and points to the corruption and cronyism that is killing America.

Governors have a duty to mitigate weather hazards such as reinforcing infrastructure, levees, water capture and conservation dams, water control channels, flood and irrigation routes, as well as other mitigation activities. But this should not be a carte blanch to impose additional taxes and restrictions based on the political agenda of the progressive socialist democrats.

Perhaps, the very first step that should be taken is to abolish the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) or to change its fundamental charter to examine ALL – not just man-made -- influences relating to global climate. To determine man’s input into the system and the degree to which this input actually changes global climate. Additionally, the current terrestrial temperature datasets must be re-examined and re-computed without statistical manipulation that appears to add artificial warming where none really exists.

Time of Day Changes Affect the Final Warming Bias ushcn26

It is time to sanction those government agencies that are headed by unelected hyper-partisan political appointees and whose rules and regulations only set the stage for a long and costly court battle where the public loses and the attorneys for both sides win.

IS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ATTEMPTING TO AUTOMATE THE SUPPRESSION OF POLITICAL FREE SPEECH?

Some of the most egregious public policies are crafted on the meme of “protecting our children.” The most egregious one of inserting tracking capability into every digital device and into almost every digital file for the stated purposes of protecting our children against pornography – but with the unstated purpose of mandating the federal government criminalize, identify, track, and prosecute copyright infringers to benefit the Hollywood content creators and distributors. To this end we have seen hidden taxes applied to digital media, suppression or degradation of digital devices capable of copying copyrighted content, digital rights management systems that are capable of penetrating our digital systems and destroying the last vestiges of personal privacy, and the suppression of public domain content that is merely wrapped in an electronic wrapper; which if broken is a criminal act.

Now comes the federal government trying to automate the detection of “cyberbullying” on the internet … with zero legal protections that the system and its keywords cannot be repurposed to detect and track so-called “political hate speech” as part of the federal government’s unwanted intrusion into monitoring and controlling the internet.

Cyberbullying Detection Using Content and Social Network Analysis

This project aims to define new approaches for automatic detection of cyberbullying by integrating the relevant research in social sciences and computer science.

Cyberbullying is a critical social problem that occurs over a technical substrate. According to a recent National Crime Prevention Council report, more than 40% of teenagers in the US have reported being cyberbullied. This is especially worrying as the multiple studies have reported that the victims of cyberbullying often deal with psychiatric and psychosomatic disorders.

Specifically, this research will advance the state of the art in cyberbullying detection beyond textual analysis by also giving due attention to the social relationships in which these bullying messages are exchanged.

A higher accuracy at detection would allow for better mitigation of the cyberbullying phenomenon and may help improve the lives of thousands of victims who are cyberbullied each year.

The results of this research will also open doors to employing social intervention mechanisms to help prevent cyberbullying incidents in future.

The findings from this research will also validate and refine existing theories on cyberbullying and potentially advance the field by creating a wave of data-driven analysis of the phenomenon. The generated data set will be made available to the larger research community, thus enabling new findings that can help counter this social problem.

This research will define new approaches for automatic detection of cyberbullying and validate and refine social science theories related to cyberbullying.

To understand cyberbullying, experts in social science have focused on personality, social relationships, and psychological factors involving both the bully and the victim.

Recently computer science researchers have also developed automated methods to identify cyberbullying messages by text mining cyber conversations. However, focusing only on the textual content may lead to a piecemeal understanding of the phenomenon and a limited detection performance. Hence, this research investigates: (1) whether analyzing social network features surrounding the network can improve the accuracy of cyberbullying detection, and (2) whether the findings of social science research on cyberbullying obtained via surveys, ethnography, and interview-based methods hold true when tested via automated data analysis undertaken at a much bigger scale.

By analyzing the social relationship graph between users and deriving features such as number of friends, network embeddedness, and relationship centrality, the project will validate (and potentially refine) multiple theories in social science literature and assimilate those findings to create better cyberbullying detectors.

The project will yield new, comprehensive models and algorithms that can be used for cyberbullying detection in automated settings. <Source>

In short, this grant will enable researchers to build algorithms to search for specific dictionary-driven keywords and then map the relationships between those who send and receive keyword-detected messages on the internet. There being absolutely no difference between the methodology to detect cyberbullying and that to detect constitutionally-protected free speech.

There are few laws pertaining to the data-mining of social media and the combination and extension of these sources with data contained in private financial, medical, political, and advertising databases such as those readily accessible to the federal government. A government which has become increasingly intrusive in the lives of ordinary law-abiding citizens – mainly under the guise of detecting terrorist threats to the homeland, and proceeding with a degree of secrecy that does not appear to protect our Constitutional freedoms.

Bottom line …

It is time for people to become more aware of what the federal government in doing in our name and the extent to which they use memes like cyberbullying, race- or religion-based hate speech, or terrorist activities to pursue their own political agenda.

There is no doubt that the toxic partisan culture that is deeply embedded in today’s political bureaucracy is going to be the downfall of America – as the politicians pander to specific segments of the population in return for campaign contributions and voter support. How many people realize that enhancing penalties for so-called “hate speech” is unconstitutional as it lack specificity, is applied according to prosecutorial discretion and denies equal protection under the law to people who have been attacked while the attacker used racial epithets and they people who have simply been attacked for other criminal reasons. The law should be: if you are attacked – for whatever reason – you are punished appropriately. Similarly, affirmative action is unconstitutional as it promotes on class of citizens and disadvantages another.

There is also no doubt that a corrupt lying politician like Hillary Clinton would love to automate the detection of her enemies so she and her omnipresent surrogates can attack them using Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, and possibly even official government agencies such as the IRS, EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), FCC (Federal Communications Commission), and FEC. (Federal Elections Commission).

It is time to demand updated laws. Any politician, government employee, agent, informant, contractor, etc. who accesses private non-public personal information for political, professional, or profit purposes is guilty of a crime and shall be incarcerated without the possibility of early-release, parole, or any reduction in sentence. Any politician, official, etc. who uses a government agency to pursue a political agenda against a citizen of the United States for political, professional, or profit purposes is guilty of a crime …

You may wish to join the Electronic Frontier Foundation (www.eff.org) where they are trying to realign our laws from an analog to a digital world.

Be careful of what and whom you vote for.

HILLARY CLINTON'S EMAILS: WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

There is no doubt in my mind that the use of a private email server by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aides was designed to keep Clinton’s communications secret from the State Department and the Congressional Committees who have legitimate oversight over the Department of State. This is just another issue surrounding the unusual behavior of Hillary Clinton and her cronies, including waivers for the Clinton Foundation and certain key aides to Hillary Clinton.

One Senator, is concerned about the emails and the possibility of quid pro quo between Clinton’s political and personal interests …

dvv

March 17, 2015

The Honorable John Kerry
Secretary of State
U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Secretary Kerry:

Like many Americans, I am incredibly concerned about the recent revelations that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has kept official federal records hidden from the public, both through an external email domain and in deciding to delete thousands of these records. While the State Department is in the process of reviewing the documents Secretary Clinton has provided, I am requesting that the Department provide all additional files specifically relating to the designation of Boko Haram as a terrorist organization during former Secretary Clinton’s term and seek out any related files which may not have already been turned over by Secretary Clinton.

As I have in the past, I commend your November 2013 decision to designate Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. However, given the drastic foothold Boko Haram was allowed to gain prior to being designated an FTO, the nexus between the Department’s decision against designating Boko Haram as an FTO and connections to outside groups should be brought forward. Associated records should have been preserved as evidence of the agency’s activities, decisions and procedures. These should be presented to the relevant committees and to the American public to be evaluated for corresponding misconduct.

Last year, I presented the Department with evidence that multiple State Department Country Reports on Terrorism, presented to Congress under Secretary Clinton’s direction, failed to include valuable information related to Boko Haram. Inaccuracies within official documents make it clear that the State Department misled Congress and the American people.

Additional evidence demonstrates that multiple Department employees who were directly involved in the decision against designating Boko Haram as an FTO, including the Office Coordinator for Counterterrorism, have been Clinton Foundation employees.

Disturbingly, while the Department was refusing to make the FTO designation, former President Bill Clinton, also the head of the Clinton Foundation and account owner of the Clinton email domain, participated in events with a long-time donor and major Nigerian land developer, Gilbert Chagoury, who previously agreed to a $66 million plea deal during international investigation into corruption charges against him. We need to know if Mr. Chagoury had any influence in the decision not to designate Boko Haram an FTO, or had any other influence with Sec. Clinton’s foreign policy decisions.

Between this history of involvement and the recent revelations regarding Secretary Clinton’s record keeping, I strongly believe it is essential to re-establish trust in the Department to provide the related materials to the public. If funds from the Clinton Foundation were used to pay for the email server, it would constitute a financial benefit from the Clinton Foundation and donations from foreign businessmen who directly stood to gain from Clinton’s decision, which is questionable at best.

I have long opposed the foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation as a conflict of interest for Secretary Clinton due to the nature of the job. Moreover, as you are aware, the Code of Federal Regulations requires federal agencies to make and preserve records that duly document agency activity. Former Secretary Clinton’s actions in conjunction to information I have previously presented to the Department where she circumvented and misled Congress should be closely examined.

The purpose of the law is to ensure that agency activities are available to be reviewed when needed -- such as for FOIA requests or congressional inquiries. Each federal agency is responsible for maintaining its records in accordance with regulations. Due to the highly unusual nature of the current circumstance, I am asking you to demonstrate the Department’s commitment to transparency and to provide all files related to their decision not to designate Boko Haram an FTO, and all communication with Mr. Chagoury or his affiliated businesses.

These actions, if true, run contrary to the trust placed in the Department, as a representative of the United States and constitutional government. It is imperative to fully disclose relevant information to the American public.

Sincerely,

David Vitter
United States Senate

It’s about money and power, sold on the backs of the poor …

Chagoury’s latest project, a land reclamation effort known as Eko Atlantic that will provide residences and amenities to 250,000 wealthy Nigerians outside of Lagos, has been criticized by some for not aiding Africa’s poor. Bill Clinton attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the project in February 2013. <Source>

And Chagoury is not unknown to the Clintonistas …

The Clinton Foundation did not respond to emailed questions and repeated phone calls about the nature of Bill and Hillary Clinton's relationship with Chagoury. Former Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe, who, according to The Washington Post, was a sponsor of Chagoury's invitation to the White House in 1996, also failed to return phone calls. A spokesman for former Clinton political advisor James Carville, also a Chagoury acquaintance, said that Carville could not comment on the relationship. <Source>

According to Senator Vitter …

Chagoury has long-standing connections to Secretary Clinton and has donated over $5 million to the Clinton Foundation and hosted former President Bill Clinton in Nigeria as head of the Clinton Foundation in 2013. The decision against designating Boko Haram was made between 2011 and 2013, while Secretary Clinton was in office. <Source>

Vitter has long been concerned about conflicts of interest between Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and her position as Secretary of State. Vitter has advocated against foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation since 2009 and voted against Clinton’s nomination to serve as Secretary of State, largely in part because of the conflict of interest with the Foundation and the donations it accepts. Evidence has emerged that Clinton Foundation employees working for the State Department were directly involved in the non-designation for the two years the Department refused to make the designation, despite evidence by U.S. intelligence clearly stating Boko Haram was engaged in terrorist activity against Western and U.S. nationals.

Last year, Vitter pushed for answers on why the State Department, under Clinton’s leadership, misled Congress on the terrorist threat posed by Boko Haram. Click here to read more.

Where was President Obama while Boko Haram was raping, mutilating, and killing little girls and burying little boys alive?

moo

It’s not like President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats did not know what Boko Haram was doing and the depths of their Islamic depravity.

Bottom line …

Hillary Clinton is a proven liar whose corrupt actions and cronyism is well-known since her days in Arkansas. She is a Marxist, and even worse, a self-serving corrupt Marxist willing to steal, connive, and feather her own nest. That President Obama was forced to accept the camel with her nose under the tent, only speaks to his lack of core values and his total disengagement with anything not dealing with domestic politics and political adoration. He is a man who apparently believes his own bullpucky and is unwilling to listen anyone who tells him that the Emperor has no clothes.

Chuck "The Schmuck" Schumer to replace Harry Reid?

Who owns Chuck Schumer? sch

It has often been said that the most dangerous place in Washington is to stand between Chuck Schumer and the media cameras. Notable for his strident progressive socialist democrat politics, Schumer is one of the proximate causes of the failure of California’s Indy Mac Bank – some say motivated by his cronyism, others claiming it was simple incompetence and the desire to grandstand before the mainstream media.

But, whatever his motivations, Schumer is as much as socialist as is Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. No moderation to be found; only corruption, cronyism, and hyper-partisan politics. In essence, what we have come to expect from the progressive socialist democrats.

What is amazing is that this number 3 democrat managed to jump the line over number 2 democrat Dick “Dirtbag” Durbin to capture the number 1 nomination to replace the corrupt, cronyist Harry Reid.

Perhaps it is payback for yeoman’s service in the IRS scandal involving the targeting of TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party groups to the extent it interfered with a presidential election …

Flashback: Schumer, Franken urged IRS to target tea party in 2012

Long before the Internal Revenue Service revealed it had improperly targeted conservative 501(c)(4) groups, a group of Democratic senators led by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer urged the IRS to do just that.

The IRS’s admission last Friday that it had singled out tea party and other groups for extra audits and delays has raised concerns that President Barack Obama’s administration quietly attempted to stymy opponents through intimidation.<Source>

Bottom line …

It appears that the traditional, honorable, and trustworthy democrats of my father’s era are gone. Replaced by progressive socialist democrats who have more in common with communism than they do with capitalism and America’s freedom.

You can’t trust the progressive socialist democrats or their RINO (Republican In Name Only) cohorts to keep America safe and secure, to improve America’s economy, and to stem the tide of corruption and cronyism that produces professional political whores like Chuck “The Schmuck” Schumer.

HILLARY CLINTON WIPED HER EMAIL SERVER; AMERICANS SHOULD WIPE HILLARY CLINTON

hc4

So Hillary Clinton wiped her server clean – far surpassing the 18 missing minutes in the Nixon tape – and is now asserting that she turned over all “official” documents to the State Department. But, did she also turn over all relevant documents of her State Department employees who also used the same server. If not, Hillary Clinton has destroyed official government documents and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

That the progressive socialist democrats continue to champion a corrupt liar whose pattern and practice of politics suggests unethical and potentially criminal acts is testimony that the democrat party, from the highest levels downward, cannot be trusted with the safety and security of America. And, if elected will continue the Clinton cronyism that rewards friends – even if there are foreign dictators and abusers of women – and punishes enemies.

The Clintons have behaved so egregiously as to be barred from engaging in politics outside of their role as private citizens. Forget auditing the Fed, it is time to audit the Clinton Foundation to discover if quid pro quo deals among cronies and supporters have materially damaged the United States.

Trey Gowdy: Hillary Clinton wiped her server clean

Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday.

Clinton was under a subpoena order from the Select Committee on Benghazi for all documents related to the 2012 attacks on the American compound there. But David Kendall, an attorney for Clinton, said the 900 pages of emails previously provided to the panel cover its request. Kendall also informed the committee that Clinton’s emails from her time at the State Department have been permanently erased.

In a letter provided to the committee, Kendall said Clinton would not be turning over the server to a third-party for review and that the emails no longer exist on the private server located in her New York home.

“There is no basis to support the proposed third-party review of the server that hosted the hdr22@clintonemail.com account,” Kendall wrote. “To avoid prolonging a discussion that would be academic, I have confirmed with the secretary’s IT support that no emails…..for the time period January 21, 2009 through February 1, 2013 reside on the server or on any back-up systems associated with the server.”

<Source>

Bottom line …

You cannot trust the progressive socialist democrats to tell the truth and they continue to champion a proven liar and worse as their potential 2016 presidential nominee. The American people cannot afford to be bamboozled once again where color trumps competence and sex trumps substance.

HOW CAN AMERICA'S ALLIES TRUST BARACK OBAMA? OBAMA ONCE AGAIN DAMAGES OUR FOREIGN RELATIONS

lob

There is little or no doubt in my mind that President Barack Obama is a petty individual, a malignant narcissist, a communist, and an anti-Semitic fool who has damaged America’s foreign relations more than any other president in the history of the United States.

To simply say that he was incompetent would be to overlook the deliberate damage he is doing as he fights to avoid being the worst president in history and to validate that empty accolade that will forever haunt him: a Nobel Peace Prize awarded to a man on no accomplishment, either foreign or domestic. But then again, he is in good company as the Prize was also awarded to a terrorist-kleptocrat-extortionist Yasser Arafat, the man that raised kleptocracy in the Middle East to a fine art.

Can you trust an ally that deliberately reveals your nation’s nuclear secrets?

US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel's Nuclear Program

Obama revenge for Netanyahu's Congress talk? 1987 report on Israel's top secret nuclear program released in unprecedented move.

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel's nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel's nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu's March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran's nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel's sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

The 386-page report entitled "Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations" gives a detailed description of how Israel advanced its military technology and developed its nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.

Why would Obama compromise the safety and security of Israel?

Other than the obvious, that Obama is pro-Islam and anti-Israel, it could be because he knows the deal he is being forced to accept by a resolute Iran is so disadvantageous to Israel, the Middle East, and the Western world, that he may want to remind Iran of a superior nuclear force nearby with both the way and the will to destroy Iran. A coward’s way of saying I will let you have nuclear weapons and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, but with great power comes great responsibility. A ploy that might work if the Mullahs were not apocalyptic zealots who actually believe – as they have said many times before – that it would take a catastrophic event to return the 12th Imam to power and restore an Islamic Caliphate.

U.S. Caves to Key Iranian Demands as Nuke Deal Comes Together -- Limited options for Congress as Obama seeks to bypass lawmakers

The Obama administration is giving in to Iranian demands about the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the administration’s position in the negotiations.

U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.

Concern from sources familiar with U.S. concessions in the talks comes amid reports that Iran could be permitted to continue running nuclear centrifuges at an underground site once suspected of housing illicit activities.

This type of concession would allow Iran to continue work related to its nuclear weapons program, even under the eye of international inspectors. If Iran removes inspectors—as it has in the past—it would be left with a nuclear infrastructure immune from a strike by Western forces.<Read More …>

One need only look at the Sunni-coalition led by Saudi Arabia that is using military force to keep Shia Iran from taking over “Obama’s foreign relations success,” known as Yemen. A clear, concise repudiation of Obama’s failed foreign policy and a demonstration of the incompetence of his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

Unlike the phony 60-nation paper coalition that Obama touts loudly – and often – the Arab coalition is backing their rhetoric with military action. No doubt if they achieve success in stemming Iran’s incursion, Obama will loudly proclaim he is the architect of the offensive, but just couldn’t say anything about our support, lest American involvement create additional problems for the coalition. 

Perhaps it is time to think the unthinkable …

I believe that there exists sufficient grounds to impeach and try Barack Obama on charges of high crimes and misdemeanors as he has fundamentally provided aid and comfort to our enemies, orchestrated and obstructed justice, and has surpassed Richard Nixon in perfidy. The idea of Joe Biden, a man that has been wrong about most foreign affairs and possibly the Boris Yeltsin of our nation, appears to be capable of doing less damage to America than another two years of Barack Obama.

Bottom line …

To allow the progressive socialist democrats to continue to seek continuing power in 2016 would be tantamount to destroying America and reducing the safety, security, and lifestyle of all Americans. Here comes the democrats attempting to hand over America to illegal aliens and to foreign interests in return for ephemeral political power. They can’t be trusted and should be rebranded as the communist party in the United States.

NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIALIZES "NO NEED TO PROSECUTE BERGDAHL"

I am shocked that a major mainstream newspaper would run an editorial suggesting that there is no reason to prosecute Bowe Bergdahl, a man so dissatisfied with his life, his position, and his country that he voluntarily deserted his comrades-in-arms and actively sought out the enemy during a time of war.

Especially a New York paper headquartered in a town where 9/11 proved that there were truly heroes running toward trouble and possible death and not away from the scene of chaos, confusion, and mass death and casualties/

I guess that the progressive socialist democrats at the New York Times feel that the words duty, honor, commitment, and oath have little meaning and that military orders are but mere suggestions.

Dishonor and disgrace at the New York Times …

No Need to Prosecute Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl - NYTimes.com

It won’t be hard for military lawyers to argue that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl violated military regulations when he slipped out of a remote outpost in Afghanistan in 2009 and became a Taliban prisoner for five years.

They would have a tougher time explaining why it’s worthwhile to prosecute a soldier the Army recruited despite significant concerns about his psychological state and who endured years of torture and privation during his captivity. As a general matter, the American military has good reason to punish service members who desert. However, it should exercise discretion in extraordinary cases. Sergeant Bergdahl’s is certainly one.

[Calling this man a Sergeant should be the first egregious act because we know, from the testimony of his brothers-in-arms that Bergdahl voluntarily deserted his post and was not in any sense a prisoner of war – but a useful idiot who got himself captured and sold as a bargaining chip – but the victim of a self-inflicted would. He was a private and should be treated like a private.

And the reason you prosecute such a deserter is to maintain good order and discipline in the ranks – regardless of the left’s disdain of the military and to honor the memory of those men who died trying to locate this errant fool or died while resources were unavailable because of the search.]

Sergeant Bergdahl, who joined the Army in 2008, was among the legion of recruits who were granted eligibility waivers to join the military during a period when it was struggling to attract applicants because of the multiple lengthy deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan that were common. His attempt in 2006 to join the Coast Guard was short-lived; he was discharged 26 days into basic training because of concerns about his psychological state. Before Sergeant Bergdahl walked out of his base in Paktika Province on June 30, 2009, it was clear to some of his family members back home, and some of his comrades in Afghanistan, that he was emotionally distressed and at times delusional. Citing an Army investigative report, his lawyer, in a letter to the military, describes his client as “naïve and at times unrealistic.”

[So it is now the Army’s fault that Bergdahl deserted or that Bergdahl was mentally unstable. There are any number of problematical soldiers serving – and they don’t desert.]

In a statement about the conditions of his detention, released by his lawyer on Wednesday after the Army’s announcement that it had filed charges, Sergeant Bergdahl says he was chained to a bed, locked in a cage, shackled and at times beaten. He had sores from his shackles and became skeletal as a result of poor nutrition and chronic ailments.

[Although the Obama Administration tried to spin the story – lying once again to the American people – that Bergdahl was in poor condition and his extraction was so exigent as not to notify Congress, was proven to be a falsehood the moment Bergdahl left that truck and headed for the helicopter. If you want to see real captivity and real torture, why not check-in with Senator John McCain who really did suffer under the brutal Viet Cong.]

When Sergeant Bergdahl returned home last summer after the Obama administration agreed to release five Taliban prisoners in exchange for his freedom, it soon became clear that many people in the military harbored deep animosity toward him. Some called him a coward and argued that he put troops in Afghanistan in harm’s way as they devoted significant resources and energy to searching for him. This anger is understandable.

[Damn straight it is justifiable. Good men, honorable men, died or were injured looking for this POS.]

But trying him for desertion and misbehaving before the enemy — for allegedly engaging in misconduct that endangered his unit — stands to accomplish little at this point. A conviction would most likely deprive a traumatized veteran of benefits, including medical care, which he will probably need for years. A dishonorable discharge would make it harder to rebuild his life as a civilian.

[Boo effin hoo – how many soldiers were given general or bad conduct discharges for some infraction of the rules? They too have a hard time in civilian life. But the difference is that they did not desert, actively seek the enemy, and possible aid that enemy in improving their tactics. Yes, he is traumatized, so let’s get him help as he serves a life sentence for desertion and misbehaving before the enemy.]

A trial would publicly raise important questions about how Sergeant Bergdahl was allowed into the Army and whether there were missed opportunities to avert the crisis his capture created. Those questions, however, should be addressed outside of a courtroom.

Perhaps this would not be such a big deal if President Obama were not so duplicitous and incompetent …

ob

Here is President Obama with Bergdahl’s parents, the father with the Taliban beard and speaking in Arabic. Quite simply put, Obama and his cadre of incompetent progressive socialists miscalculated when they announced Bergdahl’s release in the White House Rose Garden. Obama probably thought he had a two-fer: getting the five most dangerous guys out of Gitmo and welcoming home what he presumed to be a “hero.”

As the norm with President Obama, the truth is fast, fleeting, or non-existent. Obama, with one stroke of his mighty pen, managed to release the top leadership of the Taliban, thus making the situation in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and elsewhere in the region that much more precarious. And, he managed to honor a deserter while never acknowledging the true heroes who remained true to their oath and “served with honor and distinction.” The very words that Administration sock-puppets repeated over and over again – as if saying them repeatedly altered the reality of this miscreant deserted.

Bottom line …

Not only did Barack Obama give material aid and comfort to our enemies in a time of war by releasing the top leadership of the Taliban, but he continues to make a mockery of the Bergdahl affair by trying to pressure the Army into giving Bergdahl a pass for his bad conduct.

If Obama had the guts to stand before the American people and lie repeatedly, then surely he wouldn’t mind giving Bergdahl a Presidential Pardon while spitting in the face of every soldier; past, present, and future, who would serve with honor and distinction. But, then again, I would think that Obama’s anti-America sentiment is every bit as genuine as Bergdahl’s even though their positions in life differ greatly.

WHAT IS THE SECRET OF GLOBAL WARMING ?

I was wondering how a scientific hypothesis managed to rise to the status of fact without going through the protective measures of the “scientific method” …

gw1

Bottom line …

We do not deny that the Earth is slowly warming as we emerge from the Little Ice Age, that carbon dioxide plays a small role in this warming, and that some of the rise in carbon dioxide is attributable to man's actions on the planet. What we question is the degree to which global warming is man made and what proportion of the warming is attributable to natural processes over which we have little or no control. And, whether or not the current climate models and input data are accurate for making life-changing public policies that move us closer to losing our private property, personal wealth, and the freedoms which we often take for granted.

If science contrary to the prevailing and politically fashionable view of global warming is revealed or other contrarian viewpoints are validated, will the politicians risk their seats, will the special interests give up billions in government funding, will the institutions risk their reputations, and will the scientists risk their careers by exposing the fraud?

It is likely that anyone will do anything to jeopardize the status quo – even thought it is based on little more than an unproven hypothesis?

Probably not, and that is why “We the People” must elect politicians who are willing to say “no” and halt the corruption and special interest funding. Are ‘We the People” up to the task or will we continue to be distracted and divided by those who want to steal us blind – even at the cost of our precious freedom?

It remains to be seen, now and in 2016.

NETWORK NEUTRALITY: THE TWO WORDS THAT THE FCC HOPES YOU MISS ON PAGE 315 OUT OF 400 PAGES ...

What is network neutrality?

The basic concept of network neutrality is that all information packets – whether they relate to e-mail, audio, video, or other data – are to be treated equally; that is, no internet service provider can charge you more for certain data packets, charge you to send those data packets to clients they control, or prioritize the delivery of packets so that certain packet sources receive preferential treatment. Under this concept bits are bits.

How the concept will be perverted by the government …

nn

The government is doing everything in its power to obtain the type of regulatory control over the internet that they exert over telephone companies and other regulated utilities. Buried on page 315 is everything you need to know about the government’s deception …

  1. The government is attempting to persuade the public that this type of regulation is not the same regulation that gave rise to telephone monopolies and those complex and confusing tariffs that give rise to mix-and-match plans that allow the companies to sell the same interconnectivity at different and more profitable price points. In essence profiting and competing on consumer confusion and deliberate chaos.

    To this end, they have inserted language deliberately designed to mislead the public …

    "Allow me to emphasize that word “modernized.” We have heard endless repetition of the talking point that “Title II is old-style, 1930’s monopoly regulation.” It’s a good sound bite, but it is misleading when used to describe the modernized version of Title II in this Order. Today’s Order will also use the significant powers in Section 706, not as a substitute but as a complement. This one-two punch applies both Title II, as well as Section 706, to protect broadband Internet access. It is the FCC using all of the tools in its toolbox to protect innovators and consumers.”

  2. They have also inserted innocuous language, two little words – “legal content” -- that explodes into creating a major bureaucracy, intrusive monitoring, and the potential for fines and imprisonment for violations of the rules and regulations promoted under this act. This will allow for the federalization of the detection and prosecution of copyright infringement whereas these investigatory efforts were the responsibility of the content providers who then could bring civil and criminal cases. Thank the Walt Disney Company and the Motion Picture Association of America for devices that have built-in tagging and tracking mechanisms; not to mention the perversion of the original copyright laws that allowed content to be placed into the public domain after a reasonable number of years. It is also possible that using this new "legal content" ploy, the Federal Elections Commission could also regulate political speech and claim that certain content would be prohibited prior to an election.
  3. What would a an administrative order be without a method to extend it beyond legislative intent and without public outcry. To this end, you will notice that there is mention of a “general conduct rule” that can be used to implement orders for political expediency; full well-knowing that any court challenge will potentially address legitimate grievances – and, by then, there will be nobody held responsible and accountable under the law.
  4. What would be administrative order that didn’t make an attempt to become “revenue neutral” by imposing new taxes and fees to support the newly-created bureaucracy and its operations. The taxes and fees being imposed on the internet service providers who will, in turn, pass them along to the consumer as they have done so many other real and bogus charges.
  5. And, let us not forget to notice the word "forbear" as used in the order. To forbear means to restrain from doing something – even though they are exerting a legal right to do “that something” in the future. Thus, at some time in the future, they can do everything they said they wouldn’t do in order to get this Order passed through the system. Since we are placing our trust in hyper-partisan political appointees, we are gambling on their integrity and allegiance to the citizens, taxpayers, and consumers rather than their political overlords. Not a bet any sane person would want to take.

Here is the page – 315 out of 400 – that contains all you need to know about the network neutrality order ...

There is little doubt in my mind that the Federal Communications Commission is presently controlled by progressive socialist democrats who need to exert maximum control over political speech prior to the 2016 election lest their unconstitutional and potentially criminal activities be so widely exposed as to cause a major disruption in the electoral process.

Federal Communications Commission                                   FCC 15-24


The Open Internet Order reclassifies broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service” under Title II of the Communications Act while simultaneously foregoing utility-style, burdensome regulation that would harm investment. This modernized Title II will ensure the FCC can rely on the strongest legal foundation to preserve and protect an open Internet.

Allow me to emphasize that word “modernized.” We have heard endless repetition of the talking point that “Title II is old-style, 1930’s monopoly regulation.” It’s a good sound bite, but it is misleading when used to describe the modernized version of Title II in this Order.

Today’s Order will also use the significant powers in Section 706, not as a substitute but as a complement. This one-two punch applies both Title II, as well as Section 706, to protect broadband Internet access. It is the FCC using all of the tools in its toolbox to protect innovators and consumers.

Building on this strong legal foundation, the Open Internet Order will:

  • Ban Paid Prioritization: “Fast lanes” will not divide the Internet into “haves” and “have-nots.” 
  • Ban Blocking: Consumers must get what they pay for – unfettered access to any lawful content on the Internet.
  • Ban Throttling: Degrading access to legal content and services can have the same effect as blocking and will not be permitted.

These enforceable, bright-line rules assure the rights of Internet users to go where they want, when they want, and the rights of innovators to introduce new products without asking anyone’s permission.

The Order also includes a general conduct rule that can be used to stop new and novel threats to the Internet. That means there will be basic ground rules and a referee on the field to enforce them. If an action hurts consumers, competition, or innovation, the FCC will have the authority to throw the flag.

Under the Order we adopt today, open Internet protections would – for the first time – apply equally to both fixed and mobile networks. Mobile wireless networks account for 55 percent of Internet usage. We cannot have two sets of Internet protections – one fixed and one mobile – when the difference is increasingly anachronistic to consumers.

Today’s Order also asserts jurisdiction over interconnection. The core principle is the Internet must remain open. We will protect this on the last mile and at the point of interconnection.

We also ensure that network operators continue to have the incentives they need to invest in their networks. Let me be clear, the FCC will not impose “utility style” regulation. We forbear from sections of Title II that pose a meaningful threat to network investment, and over 700 provisions of the FCC’s rules. That means no rate regulation, no filing of tariffs, and no network unbundling.

During the 22 years that wireless voice has been regulated under a light-touch Title II like we propose today, there has never been concern about the ability of wireless companies to price competitively, flexibly, or quickly, or their ability to achieve a return on their investment.

The American people reasonably expect and deserve an Internet that is fast, fair, and open. Today they get what they deserve: strong, enforceable rules that will ensure the Internet remains open, now and in the future.

315

Bottom line …

There is no doubt in my mind that the Obama Administration, far from being the self-proclaimed “most transparent administration in history,” is morally bankrupt and totally corrupt and incompetent. And, given the behavior of the progressive socialist democrats in the “Fast and Furious” scandal, the bugging of reporters, the IRS scandal, Benghazi, and Hillary Clinton’s private email server, that there is nothing that these hyper-partisan socialists and communists will not do to subvert the upcoming 2016 election. Much in the same manner they attempted to cripple the legal fundraising activities of the conservatives who were denied tax exempt status; possibly throwing the race to the progressive socialist democrats when the GOP could not get its message out.

I do not trust President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats. These people have presented such a clear and present danger to America and all Americans with their divisive tactics, disregard for the Constitution and the rule of law, plus their potentially criminal actions – that democrats should never serve in office until they reform their party. That is not to give a pass to the GOP whose RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) are complicit in empowering the progressive socialist democrats.

It is time “We the People” speak out before they shut off dissenting political speech on the internet in violation of the First Amendment. And, might I remind you, it is the progressive socialist democrats that are trying to nullify the Second Amendment lest there be a severe penalty to be paid for governmental tyranny. Perhaps why they are looking at militias rather than communist agitators such as the Black Panthers or domestic Islamic terrorists.

Keep America and the internet free of government control.
