Deserter

Bergdahl Charged As Deserter

5 Terrorists for 1 Traitor? Another Great Deal By Obama

In what may prove to be a major embarrassment for the Obama administration, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was allegedly held captive by the Taliban for five years, will be charged with desertion according to retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research. Shaffer told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly that sources have told him Bergdahl’s attorney has been given a “charge sheet” and that the decision has been made to pursue the charge of desertion.

“Sgt. Bergdahl will be charged with desertion” Shaffer told O’Reilly. “I have been told and confirmed by two other sources that his attorney was given what we call a charge sheet. A charge sheet is results of the investigation listing out the articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice that have been violated. The key violation is desertion. And this is has been done. The decision has been made. Let me be very clear. As a corporate entity, the Army has decided that they want to pursue Bergdahl for this violation.”

Obama Slams EPA Brakes On Recovering Economy?

Cheap Gas? Obama: New Methane Limits For Fracking!!!

The Obama administration pushed new regulations Wednesday aimed at cutting methane emissions from the natural gas sector, calling the proposed rules a needed step to address global warming as industry groups warned the move would threaten “America’s energy renaissance.”

Relying once again on the Clean Air Act, the rules—the first of their kind—join a host of others that President Obama has ordered in an effort to slow global warming despite opposition in Congress that has only hardened since the midterm elections.

Although just a sliver of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, methane is more powerful than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere.

The White House set a new target for the U.S. to cut methane emissions by 40 percent to 45 percent by 2025, compared with 2012 levels. To meet that goal, the Environmental Protection Agency will issue a proposal affecting oil and gas production, while the Interior Department will update its standards for drilling to reduce leakage from wells on public lands.

The American Petroleum Institute, which represents the oil and gas industry, decried the proposal—questioning why the government would seek new rules when methane emissions have fallen.

“Even with that knowledge, the White House has singled out oil and natural gas for regulation,” API President Jack Gerard said in a statement.

He predicted emissions would continue to fall without government intervention, but said, “another layer of burdensome requirements could actually slow down industry progress to reduce methane emissions.”

Further, he said new regulations “could threaten the shale energy revolution.”

“We need our government to implement sound policies, but this plan seems to be based on politics,” Gerard said.

Yeah, well, no kidding. Even when the economy had the audacity to start to heal, all based on the success of the petro industry DESPITE all this regime’s new rules and regulations and refusal to allow use of federal land, refusal to sign Keystone XL, and so on, now that gas is getting close to being affordable once again for the first time in ages and ages, now the leftist tree humper wants to throw another big speed bump in the way, to take away any hope we might finally have a bit of positive change? Because of Global Warming? As another polar vortex grips the nation for another winter, and snow falls in Saudi Arabia for the 3rd year in a row? That one? The one that doesn’t friggin’ exist?

How much is it going to take to throw this bum out?

Do I need to ask, whose side is this guy on?

The oil and gas industry has insisted such rules aren’t necessary because the industry is already working to reduce methane leakage. After all, methane is natural gas, so the less that leaks during production, the more of it that companies have left to sell.

“We’re doing a good job,” said Howard Feldman, the regulatory director at the American Petroleum Institute. He noted that existing pollution rules on smog-forming pollutants have had the added benefit of cutting methane. “We don’t think it’s necessary to go after methane in any way, shape or form.”

Well duh. Like business is going to just piss away income that they have the ability to collect? So they need new rules to stop them? What kind of commie thinking is that?

wrong, baby, wrong

Obama, Dems, Bass-Ackwards As Usual



Back when gas topped $4 a gallon, Republicans chanted “drill, baby, drill” at rallies across the country—arguing more domestic drilling would increase supplies, reduce dependence on foreign oil and boost the U.S. economy.

Democrats, almost universally, mocked the GOP plan. In 2012, President Obama called it “a slogan, a gimmick, and a bumper sticker ... not a strategy.”

“They were waving their three-point plans for $2-a-gallon gas,” Obama told a laughing audience during an energy speech in Washington. “You remember that? Drill, baby, drill. We were going through all that. And none of it was really going to do anything to solve the problem.”

“‘Drill, baby, drill’ won’t lower gas prices today or tomorrow,” Rep. Janice Hahn, D-Calif., echoed on the floor of Congress in 2012. “But it will fuel our addiction to fossil fuel.”

Today, Democrats are singing a different tune, as increased domestic drilling has led to a record supply of domestic crude, put some $100 billion into the pockets of U.S. consumers and sent world oil prices tumbling.

The price of a gallon of regular gasoline on Monday was $2.13 nationwide, and below $2 in 18 states.

“Of course [Obama] was wrong. We’ve seen oil prices fall internationally now by half since last June,” said American Enterprise Institute economist Ben Zycher. “The U.S. is now the biggest oil and gas producer in the world, or almost that, and the effect has been to drive prices down as we’ve seen.”

Most of the domestic increase is due to “fracking” for tight oil in shale deposits across the U.S., as well as advances in directional drilling, where numerous pipelines diverge from a single platform in numerous directions, for a large cost savings.

But the gains, according to oil experts, come off private, not federal, lands.

Oil production on federal lands—those under the president’s control—fell 6 percent since 2009, according to the federal Energy Information Administration, while production on private lands increased 61 percent.

Democrats. Wrong on foreign policy. Wrong on domestic policy. Wrong on big government. Wrong on taxation. Wrong on damn near everything. As usual.

Oh, and BTW ... gas prices are dropping like a rock in the UK too. Petrol has hit 99P ... which is something like a buck fifty PER LITER, which works out to $5.70 US dollars per American gallon. And they think that’s cheap.

A new petrol price war erupted yesterday on the back of falling oil prices and the first 99p per litre forecourt in Britain for more than five years.

Asda sparked a 2p per litre price cut as the three other ‘Big Four’ supermarkets - Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco – swiftly followed suit.

Price cuts will ‘ripple’ through the nation’s forecourts by putting pressure on other retailers to match them or lose business.

But it also led to calls for the Chancellor to cut fuel tax which now accounts for more than 70p in every pound spent at the pumps – the highest proportion for six years.

Obviously too many Democrats and other thud-brained leftists over there as well.

Couldn’t Even Vote Present

“The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander The Prophet Of Islam”
- Barack Hussein Obama at the UN, September 2012



image



Displaying powerful symbolic unity, in fitting and proper testament to the defense of civilization, more than 40 world leaders linked arms to lead the mass march in Paris in resolve against Islamist terror.

The United States of America, Barack Obama, President, was inexcusably absent from one of the most critical turning points in the war between radical Islam and the West since 9/11.

No Obama. No Joe Biden. No John Kerry from State. No Chuck Hagel or Ashton Carter from Defense. Not even Eric Holder from Justice, who happened to have been in Paris.

More than a million people surged through the boulevards of Paris behind dozens of world leaders walking arm-in-arm Sunday in a rally for unity described as the largest demonstration in French history. Millions more marched around the country and the world to repudiate three days of terror that killed 17 people and changed France.

Amid intense security and with throngs rivaling those that followed the liberation of Paris from the Nazis, the city became “the capital of the world” for a day, on a planet increasingly vulnerable to such cruelty.

More than 40 world leaders headed the somber procession — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas; Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov — setting aside their differences with a common rallying cry: We stand together against barbarity, and we are all Charlie.

At least 1.2 million to 1.6 million people streamed slowly through the streets behind them and across France to mourn the victims of deadly attacks on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, a kosher supermarket and police officers — violence that tore deep into the nation’s sense of security in a way some compared to Sept. 11 in the United States.

The three days of terror began Wednesday when brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi stormed the Charlie Hebdo newsroom, killing 12 people, including two police officers. Al-Qaida’s branch in Yemen said it directed the attack to avenge the honor of the Prophet Muhammad, a frequent target of the weekly’s barbs. Charlie Hebdo assailed Christianity, Judaism as well as officialdom of all stripes with its brand of sometimes crude satire.

On Thursday, police said Coulibaly killed a policewoman. The next day, he seized hostages at the kosher market while the Kouachi brothers were holed up at a printing plant near Charles de Gaulle airport. It ended at dusk Friday with raids that left all three gunmen dead. Four hostages at the market were also killed.

Five people held in connection with the attacks were freed late Saturday, leaving no one in custody, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office. Coulibaly’s widow, last seen near the Turkish-Syrian border, is still being sought.

France remains on high alert while investigators determine whether the attackers were part of a larger extremist network. More than 5,500 police and soldiers were deployed Sunday across France, guarding marches, synagogues, mosques, schools and other sites.

“The terrorists want two things: they want to scare us and they want to divide us,” Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told TV channel iTele. “We must do the opposite: We must stand up and we must stay united.”

Isn’t This Interesting.

One wonders why we don’t trust the Government anymore. (note: I’ve twice taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution; not the government.)

Raytheon Riot Software Predicts Behavior Based on Social Media

Sounds like George Orwell’s 1984. I think he got it right… except for the year.

Here’s a quote I find especially chilling:

Last year, there were reports that the FBI was turning to social media to track stock fraud. Earlier in the year, the agency said it was developing a social media monitoring application, but insisted it would protect the privacy of individuals and protected groups before being used.

‘Protected’ groups? Who decides?

Mooch On Loose

FLOTUS: Those Racists, They Asked Me To Help!

The Obamas talked with People magazine about dealing with their “own racist experiences,” as the magazine described.

Michelle Obama told one story that recently took place, even as she was first lady of the United States.

“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new,”

Michelle Obama is 5’11” tall.

The nerve of those racist “little people”! Don’t you know she’s above all that?



If this is the kind of thing that makes people feel racism is alive and deeply embedded in our culture, we’re doomed. A simple neighborly request, but they see it as racism. Not even height-ism.

From my own experience, this fails the smell test even worse than the BS harvest from her White House vegetable garden. About 4 lifetimes ago I was working the night shift in a 24 hour grocery store in a swanky community in northern NJ. Every once in a while, former President Richard Nixon, who lived in the area, felt the need to be a bit common and would bop over to the store to pick up a couple things. Just like a regular guy. At 1am. Except not really. The big black limousine would pull up in front of the store, along with a Suburban or two of MIB, who would sweep the store to make sure there were no Communists or Democrats hiding in any of the boxes of stuff we were putting up on the shelves. Or even any other customers. Then, while the doors were guarded, one or two of them would stand at the top and bottom of the aisle, while the man himself came down pushing a shopping cart (hand selected for cleanliness and anti-wobble) , with another black suit in sunglasses there to actually put the items he pointed to in the basket. When they were done, they’d proceed to the checkout, where our cashier Charlie would ring them up. And the receipt, after the suites scrutinized it for accuracy, went to the office, and a bill would be mailed. He was the only customer we ever had who paid on account.

I remember when Michelle had her “in disguise” trip to the store a couple years ago. I find it impossible to believe that any “person” she “interacted with” wasn’t pre-screened and trained in the small role they were to play in her little drama piece. Because, sadly, that’s the way it has to be. Not because the President (or even a former President) and his First Lady are so high and mighty and pretentious. Because security. And not taking stupid chances.



But it’s far far worse for Barry. My God, he’s treated like a lacky, even when he’s in formal attire. That poor man, dem YTs think he’s a lawn jockey, and tries to gibs him their horses.

image

“There’s no black male my age, who’s a professional, who hasn’t come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn’t hand them their car keys,” said the president, adding that, yes, it had happened to him.

...

“The small irritations or indignities that we experience are nothing compared to what a previous generation experienced,” President Obama said. “It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It’s another thing for my son to be mistaken for a robber and to be handcuffed, or worse, if he happens to be walking down the street and is dressed the way teenagers dress.”

His son. His son? Is Obobo so lost in Black Dreamland that now he thinks he’s got Jewels In The Crown*?

And doncha just love the “walking down the street, dressed as a teen”, with the “or worse”? What a well played combination racial reference to both Michael and Trayvon, Obongo’s other sons.

Yup, racism is with us, everywhere.

* this may have been a local thing, but having children with several baby mamas used to be called having jewels in the crown. These days, riding around with that crown air freshener thing on you dashboard is, I think, showing you belong to the Latin Kings street gang. But hey, what do I know? It’s probably just a showy air freshener and I’m a raycis.

obama’s amnesty speech

I have never heard more lies packed into a 10 minute talk in my entire life. Almost every single word out of his mouth was a lie. Lies of words, lies of form, lies of omission. Lies, lies, and more lies. Oh, and “common sense legislation” the easiest liar’s tell-tale of all.

I am absolutely sickened. The hubris, the gall, the utter and complete disrespect for the intelligence and awareness of the citizenry ... I’ve never seen or heard anything like it.

Transcript and video ... http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/transcript-obamas-immigration-speech/2014/11/20/14ba8042-7117-11e4-893f-86bd390a3340_story.html

Oh, and didn’t you love that dismissive, arrogant sneer with the annoyed pursed lips, as he was forced to explain things to us stupid people. I was thinking, maybe Ozymandius with all that entails, but there’s no command there. He’s just a greasy used car salesman.
(and he couldn’t even clean the grease out of those damn Jumbo ears ahead of time. Watch them shine! So suave.)

NYT Still Going Deep On Obama

Suppressing The Gag Reflex

I see a lot of this out there. CNN and MSNBC are experts at it as well. Gak. But in almost all cases, if you can spot the phony argument, you can dismiss it as sycophantic nonsense. If you don’t want to do that, I suggest inhaling before reading each paragraph, and having tissues nearby just in case.

WASHINGTON — President Obama emerged from last week’s midterm election rejected by voters, hobbled politically and doomed to a final two years in office suffering from early lame-duck syndrome. That, at least, was the consensus in both parties. No one seems to have told Mr. Obama.

In the 10 days since “we got beat,” as he put it, by Republicans who captured the Senate and bolstered control over the House, Mr. Obama has flexed his muscles on immigration, climate change and the Internet, demonstrating that he still aspires to enact sweeping policies that could help define his legacy.

Ooh, dat man’s so big and strong!

But aides said Mr. Obama has concluded that he cannot let opposition from the other party stop him from advancing his priorities, and in his postelection comments, Mr. Obama predicted he would take actions that Republicans would not like. While White House advisers interpreted the election results as a mandate to work across the aisle, they said that cannot simply be a prescription for more gridlock where the president does nothing without Republican approval.

blah blah blah, but our brave leader marches on. Because he, and he alone, knows what’s best for the entire nation, and who cares what those little citizens clamber for.

Here comes the fantasy comparison argument* -

Although they do not present it this way, in some ways Mr. Obama and his aides are taking a page from President George W. Bush’s playbook after his own “thumping” in his final midterm elections. Instead of pulling out of the deteriorating war in Iraq, as Democrats interpreted Mr. Bush’s election mandate, he sent more troops. Democrats like Mr. Obama, then a senator, accused the president of defying the voters. In the end, the reinforcements and a strategy change helped turn around the war.

So they bent the truth a bit with the 2006 “thumping” - while the GOP did lose 6 seats, the bottom line was a 49-49-2 tie, and a tie doesn’t send a “mandate” at all, it’s just typical grumpy American voters - and Bush put the Surge into play. Which was what his generals wanted, and what it took to win the war. Senator Obama couldn’t see that, nor could Senator Clinton ("A willing suspension of disbelief” as she called the generals liars to their faces), yet it was just what the doctor ordered. So: no mandate, Obama was dead wrong, was there even a strategy change?, Bush won ... this is the same thing as 2014’s massive mandate, wherein Obama is still dead wrong, Alinsky and Cloward-Piven wrote his strategy, he does his damnedest to lose everything, from the next Olympic host city to entire swaths of nations in the Middle East. So stick with him, because our guy sure knows what he’s doing.

Well, that’s the problem. We know what he’s doing too. And the message from the people, loud and clear, is STOP.

Putin: You Ain’t Got The Balls

Once upon a time, the Gulf Of Mexico was known as “America’s lake”.

Russia plans long-range bomber flights near U.S. shores

image

Russia plans to send long-range bombers to patrol the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, the nation’s defense minister said, amid escalating tensions with the West over Ukraine.

The patrols would bring the flights close to the United States’ territorial waters. In September, the U.S. intercepted six Russian planes, including fighter jets, near airspace off Alaska, officials said.

The plan to send the long-range bombers is in response to a growing international resentment against Russia, defense minister Sergey Shoigu said Wednesday.

The plan to send the long-range bombers is in response to a growing international resentment against Russia, defense minister Sergey Shoigu said Wednesday.

In addition, he said, Russia will boost its security in Crimea, the region it annexed from Ukraine earlier this year.

“In many respects, this is connected with the situation in Ukraine, with fomentation of anti-Russian moods on the part of NATO and reinforcement of foreign military presence next to our border,” Shoigu said.

“Under these conditions, the formation of full-fledged and self-sufficient forces on the Crimean peninsula is a priority task.”

How’s that for inverse logic? The world is upset with Russia because of it’s behavior in Crimea, therefore it is justified sending more forces to Crimea to combat this. Riiiight.

“In the current situation we have to maintain military presence in the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific, as well as the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico,” he said. “Due to that, as part of the drills, Russian long-range bombers will conduct flights along Russian borders and over the Arctic Ocean.”

Even more of the same. The world is pissed at them for acting like belligerent thugs, therefore they are justified in acting like belligerent thugs ALL OVER THE WORLD ... in self defense. Riiiight.

Nuclear capable Bombers from the Soviet re-Union over the Cayman Islands, over Cuba? Off the coast of New Orleans, hovering over the oil tankers coming in and out? I guess this is Chairmain Obama being “more flexible after the election”, just as he promised his ex-Marxist red pals.

We Don’t Deserve No Respect

ObamaCare. because you’re stupid



ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber said that lack of transparency was a major part of getting ObamaCare passed, and that it was written in such a way as to take advantage of “the stupidity of the American voter.”

Gruber, the MIT professor who served as a technical consultant to the Obama administration during ObamaCare’s design, also made clear during a panel quietly captured on video that the individual mandate, which was only upheld by the Supreme Court because it was a tax, was not actually a tax.

Gee, isn’t that special? Americans were subjected to a daily hammering lecture from El Residente nearly every single day for well over a year - the same pResident who just yesterday shared his unshaken belief that the only reason his policies failed is because he didn’t sell them to us hard enough - and even after that, far less than half the country wanted this rancid rotting albatross around their necks. Yet it was rammed down our throats by a Democrat heavy legislature. And it was based on a lie. Which (burn in Hell, Roberts, you turncoat) the Supreme Court turned itself inside out and created an alternate reality exactly opposite of how the bill was sold, in order to claim it was valid (yes, it is too a tax!).

But the core of the whole thing was based on the sneering elitist attitude that YOU the voter would be TOO STUPID to see through the smoke and mirrors. Gosh, thanks for that show of respect.

Remember always, how there was no time to read the bill, and that it was so damned urgent to pass it right this second that “you’ll have to pass it to see what’s in it”. Pig in a poke, what a sick joke.

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that.  In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass… ”

And the fools voted this goon squad in for a second term. Maybe Gruber was right after all. Video at the link.


Conservative pundit David Limbaugh puts it all together, but stops just short of calling for impeachment:

You can see the mindset that these people have. There is no mistaking it. They know better than we “stupid” American people what is good for us, so they’ll do whatever is necessary, including purposely deceiving us, to advance their political agenda.

This is the stuff of outright tyrants — arrogant, unaccountable, cavalier despots. This is political fascism. This is not representative government. This type of behavior nullifies the Constitution and disenfranchises the American people.

It’s one thing to have strong ideological views. It’s altogether another to impose those views at any cost and in derogation of the people’s rights. This is who this president is. These are the people he surrounds himself with.

Obama and his team are not chastened, much less repentant, over the recent election results. They remain undeterred, and they intend to continue using whatever means they deem necessary, in their self-assessed superior wisdom, to accomplish their political ends, beginning with immigration.

But Who Will Run The Country?

Valerie Jarrett, Under The Bus?



Valerie Jarrett Is Now Scapegoat-in-Chief

The media have identified the problem with the Obama presidency and want her tarred and feathered.

Or just fired. Or sidelined. Or made an ambassador to some faraway land.

Her name is Valerie Jarrett.

White House aide and longtime Chicago pal of Barack and Michelle Obama has been a target roughly from the day she stepped foot in Washington.

But now, in the wake of the Democrats’ midterm wipeout, the press is really unloading on her. She has become the scapegoat-in-chief.

The notion that a single staff person is responsible for most of the administration’s shortcomings over the last six years is rather far-fetched. Whether it’s ObamaCare or the VA or immigration or ISIS or Syria, it’s the president who is making the decisions and selling them. If the principal problem, as the president told Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation,” was a failure to adequately communicate his policies, then the man with the bully pulpit must take most of the blame.

But the press has a shakeup mentality: all major political defeats must be followed by some kind of housecleaning. And reporters are getting tired of the story line about Obama essentially brushing off the debacle. So the journalistic knives are out for Jarrett.

It’s not hard to understand why. As a personal pal, Jarrett is easy to cast as the embodiment of the insularity of the White House. As the president’s protector, she has a track record of ticking off other administration officials. At the same time, Jarrett has no public successes attached to her name. And when she’s on television, she appears a rather robotic defender of her boss.

The article goes on to say how everyone in the White House hates and fears her because ... she’s a woman. Of course. Hey, wasn’t the Rethuglicans who were hosting the War On Women?

Riiight.

Liberal Compassion

Isn’t that an oxymoron?

Liberals enjoy pointing out that, unlike their mean-spirited and heartless conservative counterparts, they actually care about other people. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman, for one, writes that conservatives are “infected” with a “pathological mean-spiritedness” and want to “give you an extra kick” when you’re down on your luck. President Barack Obama, on the other hand, says that “kindness covers all of my political beliefs.”

So far, since I’ve been unemployed for 4 out of 6 years of the Obama Misadministration, I can say that liberals are heartless. As for the job’s he’s allegedly created? They are all part-time jobs. Thanks Obola! while you open our borders to asshole, jackoffs, and scum from Third-world countries. You give them freebies that me and my wife (citizens and taxpayers all our lives until you fucked the system) don’t qualify for. We’re the wrong race, we’re the wrong color, wrong Party, too old, etc.

Please show up on my doorstep Mr. president (yes, he’s a small man.) I got a knuckle sandwich with your name on it.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
