SecDef Hagel; Lies; Obama

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was fired today, although it was officially described as a resignation.  His offense: he told the truth about ISIS, contrary to the Adminstration’s/ Obama’s “messaging that ISIS was the “Jayvee” of al Qaeda.  6 years in and one guy of the Regime tells the truth and is canned: Name the scandal, IRS, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, VA, Obamacare, et al – nothing but lies, obfuscation and deceit.  The latest, but not the last, with 2 years to go, is the “negotiations” with Iran on their nuclear program.  Today was to be the deadline of the previously extended year and a half circle jerk by John F. Kerry & Co, marching dutifully to Obama’s orders, while the Mullahs play them like fiddles, or fools, take your pick.  End game: Iran cheats and lies and achieves nuclear weaponry, thereby setting off a regional nuclear race, as Saudi Arabia will not stand idly by.  Don’t kid yourself: the Obama Regime matches the lies and deception stroke for stroke and We, the people are being lied to.  The IAEA knows that without onsite verification, Iranian claims of “compliance” are vacuous.  Bret Stephens in his WSJ column today, nails it:

because the administration lacks the political courage of its real convictions or the martial courage of its fake ones—we are wedded to this sham process of negotiation. “They pretend to pay us; we pretend to work,” went the old joke about labor in the Soviet Union. Just so with these talks. Iranians pretend not to cheat; we pretend not to notice. All that’s left to do is stand back and wait for something to happen.

Eventually, something will happen. Perhaps Iran will simply walk away from the talks, daring this feckless administration to act. Perhaps we will discover another undeclared Iranian nuclear facility, possibly not in Iran itself. Perhaps the Israelis really will act. Perhaps the Saudis will.

God, help us.

Elections; Voter Fraud; Photo ID

The Obama Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) under Attorney General Holder has fought Voter ID laws diligently with lawsuits, claiming there is no voter fraud and such laws only disenfranchise minorities, notwithstanding the facts to the contrary. Project Veritas has exposed Voter Fraud in multiple states, releasing videos of Democrats handing out ballots to people claiming that they are here illegally.  In the 2012 election, in which Obama carried states with record voter participation, Texas, with its required Photo ID, had more minority voting than ever.

Interestingly, Voter Fraud occurs mostly in Democrat dominated states, which, of course, are most likely to require little or no ID.

Voter I.D. laws by state

In the Northeast, from Maine to DC and WVA, no ID of any sort is required for voting except in tiny Rhode Island.

The ‘Open Borders enabled most recently by the Obama Administration’s total lack of enforcement of existing laws is one enabling method of Voter Fraud.  Then, of course, was the Black Panther poll intimidation that Holder’s DOJ dropped the certain conviction of after the defendants failed to show for the scheduled trial.

2014 Election; Senate race; Political pundits

5 days or so(depending when you read this) until the polls open for the 2014 ‘Midterm’ election, with the premier battle being for the US Senate.  Pundits speaking, without necessarily declaring so, for ‘both sides of the aisle,’ say control of the Senate is too close to call on enough of the truly contested races to count.  I say, “baloney!’

Looking at the RealclearPolitics averages of this morning, most of the so-called ‘too close to call’ races total less than 90%, total, of the pollees.  This differential is not only undeclared but ostensibly, undecided.  Statistically, however, most have decided and they’re just not declaring and will be voting for the challenger, typically, the non-incumbent.  The few exceptions, IMHO, this year, are Mitch McConnell, in KY, currently Senate Minority Leader, who should win handily, against a weak opponent; and Pat Roberts in Kansas, who trailed until recently against an “independent,” who is acturally a Liberal, pretending to be an Indie.

So, what I find fascinating is that the tally of percentages of the ballots candidates are so short of 100% and I’ve found no story in print or on the web as to why.  My theory is that, as stated above, the “undecideds will vote significantly for the Republican, regardless of the whisker-thin polling edge, if any, resulting next Tuesdayin a wave election for the GOP.

Ebola; New Czar; Susan Rice; Obama

Thursday, Obama appoints a medically unqualified Ebola Czar.  Then, yesterday, he has the Czar report to his favorite serial liar, the former UN Ambassador, Susan Rice, who asserted on 5 Sunday talk shows that the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012, which killed 4 Americans, including the Ambassador, was caused by some unknown video offensive to Muslims. an assertion which was proven fictitious while the attack was ongoing.

Even Mad Magazine would not have conjured up such a bizarre incompetence.  What, me worry?

Ebola; Czar

President Obama, Commander in Chief of Transparency, has just appointed Ron Klain, a Democrat Operative and former Chief of Staff of both VPs Al Gore and Joe Biden.  Most Significantly, “His supervision of the allocation of funds in the stimulus act — at the time and [sic] incredible and complicated government undertaking — is respected in Washington. He does not have any extensive background in health care but the job is regarded as a managerial challenge.”

The approximately $900 BILLION in stimulus spending padded union coffers and did not facilitate a single private sector job.  Ebola is surely in competent hands.  Did anyone outside of the White House ask for a political “solution?”

UPDATE  Klain was a key player in Solyndra scandal.  Obama’s appointment of a Democrat Operative has nothing to do with Ebola; it’s all about protecting his back, politically.  The hell with the rest of us.

Clapper; Obama; National Security

It’s past due time to fire James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence.  Obama drove both front and rear wheels over him after throwing him under the bus on 60 Minutes on Sunday.  On Sep 15th, first wrote about “words” having meaning.  This column puts a large exclamation point on that theme, notwithstanding the ultimate blame that Obama has always shifted to others.  Most realize that his narcissism has no bounds.

Elon Musk; Gov Cuomo; Solar City

Elon Musk, CEO of Solar City and, of course, Tesla Motors, knows how to play suckers for suckers and scores big again, after his billion plus hit on Reno for his battery plant, on Gov. Andrew Cuomo of NY, to the tune of $750 Million, in one of the biggest cronyism hits since Solyndra.  It works out to over $100,000 per employee per year, if Solar City’s new subsidiary, Silevo, lasts that long; otherwise, the subsidy per employee is even a bigger hit on NY taxpayers.

Terror; Workplace beheading

How can a beheading by a muslim, shouting arabic slogans, having proselytized former fellow workers to convert to Islam, not be an act of “terror?”  Prior to today’s FBI announcement of the slayer’s (presumed guilty) connections to Anwar al-Awlaki, authorities from local to Federal, were calling it “workforce violence,” as was Major Hassan’s mass murder of 13 and injuring 20 at Fort Hood, to the accompaniment of “Allah akbar,” repeatedly.  Calling the enemy by appropriate name is the first rule of warfare and this Administration continues to deceive itself and attempts to deceive us, who know better.  Were the current workers of the slain women terrorized?  For life!  Calling Islam a “Religion of Peace” is, at best, horrible choice of words, regardless whether most practitioners are not jihadists or not, when 1/100th of one percent of the world’s 1.6 billion of them is over 150,000; and that’s not counting supporters, even if passive, whatever that means.

UPDATE:  Oops! Khorosan, the secret group in Syria with “imminent” plans to attack Western interests in Europe and the US, has been bombed in Syria.  Trouble is, Khorosan isn’t real; it’s another fiction of Obama, which he’s ordered used by the Pentagon, just like the Benghazi “talking points.”

UPDATE 9/29.  Sanitizing, gone amok.

Obama; ISIS/L;

Obama’s biggest Lie.  NO, not, “You can keep your Plan.”  “ISIS is not Islamist!”  Sayeth, Roger Simon, and I think it’s indisputable.

Obama; Words; ISIS/L;

‘Words have meaning.’  Except when Obama speaks them.  He has squandered his credibility.  The Washington Post this morning confirms that both his recent big decisions, deferring his unilateral (Executive Acts) immigration (amnesty for millions) until after the midterm elections; and the ‘war’ on ISIS/L, were “coerced” by White House and Cabinet staff.  As Obama’s Plan on ISIS is drawing no enthusiasm among allies, Democrats or Republicans, WaPo’s use of “mutiny” may not be farfetched.  Developing.
