Monday December 7th…A Day That Will Live In Infamy

Pearl Harbor survivor back for 1st time since war

Retired firefighter Ed Johann was a teenage apprentice seaman on Dec. 7, 1941, when he spotted Japanese planes coming in over Pearl Harbor. He thought they were U.S. aircraft conducting drills until explosions and flames erupted from stricken ships in the harbor. Then came screams of sailors; the stench of burning oil and flesh. The 86-year-old Oregonian is due to return Monday to Pearl Harbor for the first time since World War II to attend a ceremony marking the 68th anniversary of the attack. “I really don’t know how I’m going to handle it,” said Johann, from his home in Oregon. “When I think about it, all I have is unpleasantness. I’m sure it’s not like that now.” [I wonder when Obama is scheduled to go on live TV today and apologize to the Japanese for what they did to us 68 years ago?…ed]

Navy SEALs Arraigned on Abuse Charges

Two Navy SEALs accused in the mistreatment of an Iraqi suspect in the 2004 slayings of four U.S. contractors were arraigned in military court Monday, and one SEAL said he was gratified by support from the public and some members of Congress. The judge scheduled courts-martial next month for Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe of Perrysburg, Ohio, and Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas of Blue Island, Ill. A third SEAL will be arraigned later. The SEALs have received an outpouring of public support on the Internet, and a California congressman has led a campaign urging Defense Secretary Robert Gates to intervene. About three dozen protesters, including the mother of one of the slain contractors, stood outside the Norfolk Naval Station gate Monday morning holding signs of support.

Obama Colluding With Left to Subvert His Own Afghan War Policy

In a move by the Obama administration that is gallingly cynical and would be considered treasonous in a less progressive era, a message sent by Code Pink and an article published by the left wing online publication AlertNet indicates the White House is working with the left wing terrorist support group Code Pink to agitate the public and undermine President Barack Obama’s newly announced Afghanistan war policy. Top Obama funder, Code Pink co-founder and terrorist supporter Jodie Evans wrote at AlterNet of a White House initiated phone call she received last week, two days after Obama’s Afghan war speech at West Point. The Obama official said the administration wanted to “consult” with Code Pink in response to the group’s e-mail campaign targeting the White House with opposition to the president’s surge strategy. [The founder of the group who has personally met with America’s enemies on the battlefield has the ear of the commander in chief on a REGULAR basis concerning this administration’s policy issues. I wonder how many Americans are aware of this?…ed]

Reid Compares Opponents of Health Care Reform to Supporters of Slavery

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his GOP-blasting rhetoric to a new level Monday, comparing Republicans who oppose health care reform to lawmakers who clung to the institution of slavery more than a century ago. The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women’s suffrage and the civil rights movement — even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery. Senate Republicans on Monday called Reid’s comments “offensive” and “unbelievable.” [As far as I’m concerned this despicable idiot just sealed his political fate and any chance he had to hold onto his Senate seat is absolutely history come November 2010…ed]

Denmark’s warm and ‘fuzzy facts’

Shakespeare’s Marcellus was right. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. In this hotbed of homogeneity, where global warming is a sacred assumption for the faithful, 15,000 people will come together from 192 countries to pray for two weeks over what can be done to save the Earth from certain doom. Few places are better suited to handle the throngs of unquestioning believers who will journey from around the globe. Dissent is not tolerated, and diversity — in any form other than biodiversity — is not welcome here. (SNIP) Some 40,000 tons of carbon will be spewed getting this crowd together and keeping them in comfort. That is the daily amount of carbon dioxide produced by 30 of the world’s smaller countries, according to UN statistics. [With liberals, blatant hypocrisy like this asinine global warming party in Nopenhagen is a-ok as long as the alleged purpose behind it is a good one in their tiny minds. Meanwhile record setting snowfall is occurring all over the U.S. including places in CA that haven’t seen the white stuff in decades…ed]

Professor Bob Carter on CO2 and Climate Change

I recently came across this interesting four part series where Professor Bob Carter looks at Climate Change and asks the fundamental question: Is CO2 the cause?

Business Fumes Over Carbon Dioxide Rule

Officials gather in Copenhagen this week for an international climate summit, but business leaders are focusing even more on Washington, where the Obama administration is expected as early as Monday to formally declare carbon dioxide a dangerous pollutant. An “endangerment” finding by the Environmental Protection Agency could pave the way for the government to require businesses that emit carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases to make costly changes in machinery to reduce emissions — even if Congress doesn’t pass pending climate-change legislation. EPA action to regulate emissions could affect the U.S. economy more directly, and more quickly, than any global deal inked in the Danish capital, where no binding agreement is expected. Many business groups are opposed to EPA efforts to curb a gas as ubiquitous as carbon dioxide. [This expected EPA ruling is nothing more than Obama’s way of doing an end run around Congress, and the wishes of MOST American citizens, on this CO2 HOAX insanity. This is another of the deliberate job killing scams he has introduced to this country since the hope and change idiots put him into office…ed]

NPR reporter pressured over Fox role

Executives at National Public Radio recently asked the network’s top political correspondent, Mara Liasson, to reconsider her regular appearances on Fox News because of what they perceived as the network’s political bias, two sources familiar with the effort said. According to a source, Liasson was summoned in early October by NPR’s executive editor for news, Dick Meyer, and the network’s supervising senior Washington editor, Ron Elving. The NPR executives said they had concerns that Fox’s programming had grown more partisan, and they asked Liasson to spend 30 days watching the network. At a follow-up meeting last month, Liasson reported that she’d seen no significant change in Fox’s programming and planned to continue appearing on the network, the source said. [The attack from the left wing propaganda media arm of the White House against Fox NEWS continues even as that cable channel is pounding its rivals into the ground. The American people are clearly able to figure out where to point their remote controls for their news coverage and the uber liberal networks certainly aren’t where they are going…ed]

Google CEO: Secrets Are for Filthy People

Eric Schmidt suggests you alter your scandalous behavior before you complain about his company invading your privacy. That’s what the Google CEO told Maria Bartiromo during CNBC’s big Google special last night, an extraordinary pronouncement for such a secretive guy. The generous explanation for Schmidt’s statement is that he’s revolutionized his thinking since 2005, when he blacklisted CNET for publishing info about him gleaned from Google searches, including salary, neighborhood, hobbies and political donations. In that case, the married CEO must not mind all the coverage of his various reputed girlfriends; it’s odd he doesn’t clarify what’s going on with the widely-rumored extramarital dalliances, though. Schmidt’s philosophy is clear with Bartiromo in the clip below: “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.” [More lefty hypocrisy. Little wonder why so many internet veterans shun google and their search engine, which tracks and stores ALL of your searches indefinitely…ed]

The Threat at Home

As the United States turns its attention to security threats abroad, the disturbing trend of extremism in America’s Somali communities is a reminder that there are also real and present dangers at home. A growing body of evidence suggests that Somali communities in the Unites States have become fertile ground for terrorist groups to recruit and implant operatives. On November 23, the federal government announced eight more indictments of Somali-Americans in Minnesota on charges of recruiting members of their community to join the al-Shabaab terrorist organization in Somalia. This brings to 14 the number of Somalis from Minnesota who have been indicted for helping the Al-Qaeda-linked group. Of the eight indicted, only one has been arrested; the rest are currently outside of the United States. [Perhaps we should stop allowing people from America hating muslim countries to enter ours so then can set up shop and formulate plans to kill us on our own soil. Damn that sounds so logical and easy…ed]

U.S. sees homegrown Muslim extremism as rising threat

The Obama administration, grappling with a spate of recent Islamic terrorism cases on U.S. soil, has concluded that the country confronts a rising threat from homegrown extremism. Anti-terrorism officials and experts see signs of accelerated radicalization among American Muslims, driven by a wave of English-language online propaganda and reflected in aspiring fighters’ trips to hot spots such as Pakistan and Somalia. Europe had been the front line, the target of successive attacks and major plots, while the U.S. remained relatively calm. But the number, variety and scale of recent U.S. cases suggest 2009 has been the most dangerous year domestically since 2001, anti-terrorism experts said: [Just to set the record straight, this article points out the TRUE domestic terrorism threat this country faces and it’s NOT patriotic American citizens who believe in and support our Constitution…ed]

Federal workshop on openness closed to the public

The Obama administration conducted a workshop on government openness for federal employees behind closed doors Monday, a private training session for freedom-of-information officials to learn about a new U.S. office that settle disputes between the bureaucracy and the public. The decision to preclude the public and the media from attending Monday’s workshop left open government advocates scratching their heads, given President Barack Obama’s campaign promise to make his administration the most transparent ever. A reporter for The Associated Press was turned away from the door Monday. “If they’re getting marching orders, why shouldn’t the public be there?” said Jeff Stachewicz, founder of Washington-based FOIA Group Inc., which files hundreds of requests every month across the government on behalf of companies, law firms and news organizations. [It’s simple. The reason Obama doesn’t want the public and the media in on this “training session” is because he is hard at work keeping as much of what is going on in his administration as secret as possible. His declaration that this White House will be the most transparent in history is as laughable as Nancy Pelosi saying she was going to Lord over the most ethical House of Representatives back in 2007…ed]

Draining the Democratic swamp

When the Democrats retook Congress in 2006, incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi promised the “to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.” So how’s that promise working out? Let’s start with four developments from the last week: [The number of scandals and the amount of Democrat criminality since they took over Congress in ’06 is quite impressive indeed. Nice job there Nancy. Drain the swamp? Pump the septic tank is more like it…ed]

Hundreds in line at MOA for Palin book-signing

Staying up all night. Missing classes and work. The cold. The exacting rules. None of that stopped hundreds of Minnesotans from lining up to see Sarah Palin Monday at her book signing at the Mall of America. Before dawn, about 500 people snaked in a line about a quarter-mile long at the mall for the chance to interact with the former Republican vice presidential nominee. The mall stop is part of Palin’s tour to smaller cities across the country to promote her book, “Going Rogue.” [Another huge crowd turns out to see Sarah Palin but let’s check out this writer’s math real quick. 500 people in a line that “snaked” for a 1/4 of a mile? You mean to tell me EVERYONE was standing nearly THREE FEET away from the next person in line? What line have you ever stood in where this happened? Perhaps the writer has a little trouble estimating the size of crowds or more likely she was deliberately deceptive about the number of people anxiously waiting to see the former Alaska governor…ed]

Sarah Palin’s Popularity Grows, Poll Finds

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released today (PDF) finds that Sarah Palin’s favorable rating has risen to 46 percent. That represents an increase from the 39 percent favorable rating for Palin in CNN polling over the summer, following her decision to resign from her job as Alaska governor. Palin, the former GOP vice presidential candidate, remains a polarizing figure, of course: 46 percent view her unfavorably, matching her favorable rating. Just 8 percent of those surveyed did not offer an opinion on Palin, who is currently on a book tour for memoir “Going Rogue: An American Life.” (SNIP) Eight in 10 Republicans view Palin favorably, CNN reports, while more than seven in 10 Democrats views her unfavorably. Men are more likely to view Palin favorably than women. [A CNN poll?? LOL! If a poll by these left wing nutjobs gives Palin a 46% approval you can bet the farm it was at least 10 points below reality. When Rasmussen gets around to this question I may stand up and take notice. By the way Gallup has the oh so “popular with the American people” Obama at 47% today…ed]

Beneath the Gulf, drillers uncover bounty

Despite a tough economy that forced cuts elsewhere, oil and gas producers in 2009 continued their push into the deep-water Gulf of Mexico, and many of their efforts were rewarded. So far this year, there have been 12 discoveries in at least 1,000 feet of water, representing some 1.35 billion barrels of oil equivalent, the most found there in a single year since 2002, according to an analysis by Wood Mackenzie, an energy industry consulting firm. Announcing discoveries were oil majors including BP and Chevron Corp. as well as independent producers including Anadarko Petroleum Corp., all of which rode out the recession and huge commodity price swings in hopes of a big score. The discoveries won’t get the U.S. to energy independence anytime soon. The nation still imports about two-thirds of its oil needs, and probably will after the new fields come online. [We have plenty of natural resources available in this country to satisfy our needs so why are we buying oil from countries that hate western values in general and our way of life in particular? Why do the voters in this country continue to put people in office who prevent us from utilizing these resources and in turn continue to fund America hating muslim nations? Why would we allow foreign countries to drill for oil within sight of our coastline?…ed]

Ohio dismemberment killer arrives in death house

A condemned killer scheduled to become the first person in the U.S. put to death with a single drug — in an execution that could take longer than previous procedures — arrived Monday at the Ohio death house. Kenneth Biros, 51, was sentenced to die for killing and dismembering a woman he met in a bar in 1991. It would be the first injection under Ohio’s switch from using three drugs to a new one-drug execution method. A backup method allows executioners to inject drugs directly into muscles. [Instead of dickin’ around with these stupid drugs just bring back the guillotine. It’s a simple, quick and 100% effective method of doing away with murderous scumbags…ed]

Comcast Execs Gave Large Donations to Obama and Democrats

Executives at Comcast, the media behemoth looking to buy a 51 percent stake in NBC Universal, have given large sums of money to presidential candidate Barack Obama and Democrats in recent years The Hill reported Saturday:

Comcast chief executive Brian Roberts made more than $76,000 in political contributions to Democrats since 2006, compared to $13,500 in contributions to Republicans. Comcast vice president and top lobbyist David Cohen made about $180,000 to Democrats in the same period, compared to $12,000 to Republicans, according to OpenSecrets.org.

But that’s just the beginning. [Wait a minute! I thought the big money corporate types ONLY supported and bankrolled Republicans?…ed]

Iran Reminds Students That Anti-Americanism Is a ‘National and Religious Duty’

Fearful that a traditional students’ solidarity day on Monday would turn into an anti-regime event, Iranian authorities took steps to clamp down on potential trouble while reminding young Iranians of the anti-U.S. origins of the state-sponsored commemoration.
Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned that Israel, the U.S. and other enemies are trying to sow dissent and division, having failed to weaken Iran in other ways. “The Zionists, the Americans, and other arrogant powers are afraid that the Iranian nation will become an example [to other Islamic nations] … and that is why they have been using every trick and plot in order to isolate Iran,” he said in a speech Sunday. [Fear not folks. Obama will continue to kiss the ass of this anti American regime at every available opportunity…ed]

Pity poor Liveshot, down to his last $200 million or so

What a week for Sen. John “Liveshot” Kerry. First, his fellow limousine liberals in Congress propose a tax . . . on Botox! And now the really bad news: His net worth has plummeted from $336 million to $208 million. Sen. Kerry’s portfolio has been swiftboated – by his own idiotic investments. We now have an answer to the eternal question: Hey, Senator, why the long face? Oh well, easy come easy go. It’s just the money from his second wife’s first husband’s trust fund. You’ve heard of blood money. This is – was – ketchup money. At least they still have each other. He’s about to turn 66, she’s 69, so you can very well understand what the serial gigolo saw in the ancient gold digger. About a billion dead presidents. [HAH!! Gotta read this one, it’s a hoot.

Supplies with Obama logo surprise school

Pencils and notebooks resembling President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign ads have been sold in at least one Columbia school and other public schools, causing the company that distributes the materials to travel around the state yanking the supplies out of machines. “Don’t be mad at us,” said Greg Jones, a sales representative with Pencil Wholesale. “It was a total accident.” (SNIP) Three Missouri schools have contacted Jones since the beginning of the school year asking that the materials be removed, and Mill Creek Principal Mary Sue Gibson this week said she also planned to call Pencil Wholesale.

ACORN prober finds no illegal pattern on videos

An internal investigation of the community-organizing group ACORN found no pattern of intentional, illegal conduct by ACORN staffers on undercover videos shot by conservative critics of the group. In a 47-page assessment that former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger was commissioned by the organization to do, he criticized ACORN’s management as not moving fast enough to institute reforms after an alleged eight-year coverup by ACORN founder Wade Rathke of an embezzlement by his brother. ACORN’s leaders are “now reaping what Rathke sowed,” wrote Harshbarger, who was brought in to investigate. The organization’s leadership has made reforms in finances and governance a priority, the Harshbarger report stated. [ACORN investigates itself and finds no evidence of wrongdoing.

Porn star Holly Sampson is seventh woman linked to Tiger Woods as sex scandal continues to grow

Tiger Woods’ other New York girl spent the day holed up in her Chelsea apartment Sunday after she was outed by the Daily News.

The 31-year-old leggy and busty blond spent Sunday calling friends, saying, “My involvement with Tiger Woods has just surfaced,” according to a pal. Rist also had to explain the sudden media attention to her 7-year-old son, who has idolized Woods since his mother got him an autographed golf club from the Grand Slam-winning legend.
