Deja Vu again…..

By Mike Cunningham On June 11th, 2013 at 10:29 pm

Sometime back I wrote of the largest and possibly the most important (then) leak of secret and confidential documentation in over forty years; and of the man responsible for that leak, Daniel Ellsberg. Many may disagree with my strong admiration for this man, his motives and his beliefs, but I continue to state that this is what America was built upon; a man whose belief and actions may have been seen to be against the Law, but that same law, in the form of the Supreme Court of the United States, stated that he was he was in the right to expose lies, deceit and Government treachery.

So who better to comment upon the release of information which, although sketchy, seems to point straight at an egregious breach of that same Constitution which Ellsberg strove to defend against the unscrupulous actions of the soon-to-be-impeached President Nixon and his gang of thieves, bullies and liars?

Barry’s Babes

By Patrick Van Roy On June 5th, 2013 at 9:04 pm

The wonderful arrogance of The President never ceases to amaze and delight. King Barry has decided that since none of the current scandals can touch him due to the blind protection given him by the Press and Government Unions he will just march on with his agenda. Bless his little hate filled heart.

So he will appoint the following two Witches to prominent seats of power.

Susan Rice will go from Ambassador to the U.N. into the job of National Security Adviser. It will also block her from being called before the Oversight Committee.

riceliarWASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s top national security adviser Tom Donilon is resigning and will be replaced by U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, marking a significant shakeup to the White House foreign policy team.  (no it doesn’t)

Rice, a close Obama confidante, came under withering criticism from Republicans as part of the investigations into the deadly attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. Rice, relying on talking points from the intelligence community, said in television interviews that the attacks were likely spontaneous, which was later proven incorrect. (no she is still under investigation and is likely to be subpenaed)
Obama considered nominating Rice as his second-term secretary of state, but she withdrew amid the GOP criticism, saying she didn’t want her confirmation fight to be a distraction for the White House. (in other words he doesn’t want her asked who told her to lie about Benghazi)

Her new post as national security adviser does not require Senate confirmation. (how convenient)

Rice will be a perfect NSA after all she was one of the master minds as NSC Africa specialist, together with the then NSC terrorism specialist Richard A. Clarke, who successfully lobbied for continuing to bar U.S. officials, including the CIA and FBI, from engaging with the Khartoum government. Which might have prevented 9/11 from happening.

Now the Special Princes.. the PERFECT Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power. A true hate America first unless Israel is involved, in that case hate Israel THEN the U.S.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A White House official says President Barack Obama will name former aide Samantha Power as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Power is a longtime Obama adviser who worked on his 2008 presidential campaign and ran the human rights office in the White House. She left the administration in February but was considered the favorite to replace Rice at the U.N.

Here is an old piece on the wonderful Ms. Powers. This piece highlights why she is perfect for the U.N.

Obama, Libya, and Israel

HOW AMERICANS CAN CUT HEALTHCARE COSTS BY 50% RIGHT NOW

By Pete Moore On May 29th, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Abolish insurance

Dr. Michael Ciampi took a step this spring that many of his fellow physicians would describe as radical.

The family physician stopped accepting all forms of health insurance […]

But the decision to do away with insurance allows Ciampi to practice medicine the way he sees fit, he said. Insurance companies no longer dictate how much he charges. He can offer discounts to patients struggling with their medical bills. He can make house calls.

“I’m freed up to do what I think is right for the patients,” Ciampi said. “If I’m providing them a service that they value, they can pay me, and we cut the insurance out as the middleman and cut out a lot of the expense.” […]

…“I’ve been able to cut my prices in half because my overhead will be so much less,” he said […]

Before, Ciampi charged $160 for an office visit with an existing patient facing one or more complicated health problems. Now, he charges $75.

Patients with an earache or strep throat can spend $300 at their local hospital emergency room, or promptly get an appointment at his office and pay $50, he said.[…]

“If more doctors were able to do this, that would be real health care reform,” he said. “That’s when we’d see the cost of medicine truly go down.”

A worthy apostle

By Mike Cunningham On May 13th, 2013 at 12:40 pm

I note that the IRS is under fire for targeting (surprise!) political opponents who sought tax-exempt status, especially ones with ‘Tea Party’, with rigorous challenges and requests for donor lists (illegal). Also under scrutiny were groups who chose to educate Americans about their Constitution.

Reminds me of a previous era, under a slightly different political colour and President. One hopes that the present attempt to subvert any opposition to the words of the Great One will come to the same sticky end!

The scene….stage left.

I can now state that the actual number of people who responded to the calls for help from the house on Seymour Avenue is presently catalogued at 735, and counting.

It should be noted that the vast majority of claimants also state that publicity or financial reward is the last thing on their mind; and that justice against the Castro brother who held these women is all they are interested in.

At last…

This, by the way, Hilary, is the difference it makes!

Tangled…..indeed!

When I relax in front of the box, I normally watch pre-recorded episodes of the various series which I follow. Pre-recorded because I can then zip past all the appalling adverts which litter the airwaves, and thus enjoy what I view.

One of the shows I watch is ‘The Good Wife’, which is a legal-based drama series featuring, as the main characters, the top lawyers and associates of a Chicago Law firm.

The plots are good, the acting first-rate, and the series is what we have come to expect from American entertainment, which is quality.

But the one thing I did not expect to see is real life following one of the early plots. Seems as though Judge Mark Ciaveralla should have been watching the show as well.

 

Life surely is stranger than firction!

MEANWHILE, IN THE LAND OF THE FREE …

Former FBI counterterrorism agent Tim Clemente states, on CNN, that “all digital communications” are being recorded and stored by the government.

(Citizens are reminded that terrorists hate them for their freedoms.)
