BILL MAHER: “THIS COUNTRY IS BECOMING A POLICE STATE”

By Pete Moore On April 28th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

Says the man who donated $1m to Obama’s 2012 campaign. Still he makes some good points, even if they are rather obvious to a libertarian –

Am I right in thinking that Maher is something of a (US) liberal/progressive? Or are his opinions more eclectic than that? I know he’s not a favourite among Republicans. He’s fawned all over Ron Paul on his show. Maybe some sense rubbed off onto him. Let’s hope he keeps moving that way instead of putting his hope and money in politicians who hate his freedoms more than any jihadist.

THERE THEY GO AGAIN

By Pete Moore On April 25th, 2013 at 7:53 pm

The White House says that it believes Damascus has used chemical weapons “on a small scale”, immediately setting those dogs of war, Lindsey Graham and John McCain, on a chase to rattle some spears.

Safe areas for their pet rebels .. no-fly zones .. must grab those chemical weapons .. Russia .. Iran .. blah blah. Never mind that the White House has called for credible and corroborated” facts before acting on that assessment, and that the rebels are full of the types who have been fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq for a decade. One intelligence assessment, one arbitrary red line, and that’s enough: more war.

The more I hear McCain, the more demented he sounds. I thought it made no difference who won the 2008 presidential election, but I’m wondering now just how catastrophic a McCain presidency would have been.

It is all true, we are doomed!

So, you are a US soldier, and you are on your second tour in the ‘Stan. You have been attacked, along with your platoon, by a bunch of well-armed Taliban Muslim terrorists (alternatively fighters) in a valley. You have a good line of sight to three of the opposition, and you cuddle your fully automatic rifle, and take aim through the scope. You have a full bead one one of the bearded gunmen who are doing their level best to kill you, and are actually squeezing the trigger when a senior non-com grabs your shoulder and tells you to ‘Remove the engraved Bible references from the scope before it offends someone!’

The right of the people to be secure in their persons,

By Mike Cunningham On April 23rd, 2013 at 7:24 pm

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

So when was it decided that those few precious words no longer applied?

Was it here?

 

Or was it decided that, for ‘exigent reasons’ that particular Amendment no long applied?

WHITE HAT CHARGED WITH USE OF WMD

By Pete Moore On April 22nd, 2013 at 7:47 pm

1-250d2d4573Making him the first American to clap eyes on WMD since the last UN inspector left Iraq.

There’s the complaint on the left: 1) Use of a Weapon of Mass Destruction, and; 2) Malicious Destruction of Property Resulting in Death. The death penalty applies. To the dismay of John McCain, Lindsey Graham and other headbangers, he isn’t treated as an “Enemy Combatant Headed for a Good Torturing in Gitmo”, or whatever the technical status is, meaning it’ll be a civil trial.

The first charge is a nonsense of course, but that’s federal prosecutors for you.

POLICE STATE USA

By Pete Moore On April 21st, 2013 at 7:56 pm

When they kick out your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

Remember those loons who warned that this can happen when you cede too many powers to the state? Here we see residents raided, forced out of their own home, at gunpoint, by shouting paramilitaries and marched up the street, hands raised in submission, in America in 2013 –

And when it was over, these goons were applauded by the locals.

Wrong Party?

By Mike Cunningham On April 20th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Comments on websites which I visit seem puzzled that there weren’t more pointers to the Tea Party’s lack of success in recruiting in Chechnya!

BOSTON UPDATES

By Pete Moore On April 19th, 2013 at 10:56 am

As it stands, there’s been a 7-Eleven robbery, a carjacking, a police officer killed at MIT, a chase, the suspects flinging IEDs at the police, one suspect killed, some officers injured and White Hat is being hunted in Watertown, near Boston.

If you’re watching the news channels then you’re an hour behind. In fact Sky News has just excitedly shown a photograph (“it’s just come in!”) of one suspect that was bouncing around the web 12 hours ago.

This is a Boston police live audio feed.

DAVID STOCKMAN: BACK O’ THE NET

By Pete Moore On April 2nd, 2013 at 5:34 pm

“Bernanke is the most dangerous man to hold high financial office in the history of the United States.”

Former Reagan Budget Director David Stockman was out with a blockbuster op-ed in the New York Times over the weekend (State-Wrecked: The Corruption of Capitalism in America). He found time also to be interviewed on Fox. He pretty much nails the Fed’s pumping of the NYSE bubble and the phony economy –

…..and jobs for all.

By Mike Cunningham On March 31st, 2013 at 2:17 pm

“There are people lined up out there for jobs,” said John Lyles, a vice president at Franklin, according to testimony by a plant manager in a successful lawsuit in Mississippi brought by four cushion workers who suffered severe nerve damage from the glue. “If they start dropping like flies, or something in that order, we can replace them today.”
