Huber Who?

Justice Dept. Winds Down Clinton-related Inquiry “Found Nothing of Consequence”

“Huber’s tasking was nebulous from the start. Some people involved in the matters he was said to be reviewing expressed surprise that they were not contacted by the U.S. attorney, and wondered privately what he was doing.”

Our Observations:

1) This is John Huber’s investigation! Remember him? Throughout his “inquiry”, ‘Waldo’ was easier to find than “Where’s Huber?”

2) This is a “news flash” from MSN…evaluate the accuracy of its conclusions at your own risk.

3) Guess who named Huber to do this “intensive investigation” into “Uranium One””, the Clinton Foundation, and the FBI investigation of Hillary’s email server… Jeff Sessions! Surely you have some reservations about that!

4) We can only hope that John Durham will have done a serious investigation (we think he has); MSN’s story, we believe, is intended to try to discredit Durham’s eventual conclusions.

Seriously deranged liberals

US and Canadian intel networks are pretty sure it was a missile strike that brought down a Ukrainian airliner killing all 180 souls on board soon after the aircraft departed an Iranian airport.

So what do the usual suspects do – blame the United States.  Now they are not saying the US fired the missile, (although we suspect that was their first inclination) no, they are assuming the airliner was brought down by a missile and that it was fired mistakenly by Iran. But they blame Trump for that for exacerbating tensions between the two countries   causing Iran’s mistake.

yeh right

To make that connection it takes a special kind of stupidity, animus and analness (the latter not in the excessively careful or precise meaning, but rather assholeness).   All of those qualities are exemplified in Jennifer Ruben and the aptly named anal-fixated Pete Buttigieg. Incredibly the former still claims to be a conservative in her Twitter meanderings and Buttigieg is encompassed by journalistic puffery for being a moderate and a military expert (double entendre intended).

‘Seriously broken’: Jennifer Rubin is officially making excuses for Iran shooting down Ukrainian commercial flight and killing innocents

Buttigieg*

“Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat. My thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight.” 

Iran has been engaging in acts of war against the United States for decades.  Most recently it sponsored a foray occupying embassy grounds in Iraq and was plotting to destroy an embassy.  The planner, Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, already listed as a terrorist and responsible for directing the killing of many hundreds of American soldiers and civilians was dispatched with prejudice in recent days under Trump’s direction.

That enraged Democrats including Rubin. In their warped minds what was Iran then to do but to exercise every incompetence and assume an aircraft taking off from one of its own airports on an approved flight was an American attack. Further, that we were to continue to kowtow to these maniacal numbskulls.

Curiously no one is saying based on the missile strike presumption/theory (however fairly certain) that any other missile capable country was responsible. Indeed official Iran is denying that the plane was shot down at all. Further reports are that they have proceeded to bulldoze the crash site.  Those are the people Rubin and Buttigieg have sympathy for.

As adapted from a recent comment section to one of the articles we linked to, the reasoning both use is equivalent to:

Known homicidal burglar breaks into house.
Home owner defends himself.
Burglar runs out, shoots and kills a neighbor while escaping.

Liberal conclusion: An unnecessary loss of life just because the home owner was belligerent


*Buttigieg is no longer mayor of anything so in an effort to be properly gender neutral we wonder is he to be addressed M, Mir, Misc, Mre, Msr, Mx, Myr, or Ser?

Joy Behar is right about others attitude toward Liz Warren

Here is the story at The Resurgent along with 40 seconds clip and our response:

Joy Behar To Warren: Americans Afraid You’re Going To Tax The Bejesus Out Of Them

DID JOY BEHAR USE THE WORD BEJESUS??!! How dare she! Shocking offensive term especially when used by a non-coreligionist. Raises specter of insult to low-brow Irish and Christians in general. If a prominent Christian conservative had used some tainted term linked to another religion you can imagine the outrage. Substitute “tax the ikeymo out of you”‘ “jew” . . . whatever.

By the way — damn straight she will tax the “bejesus” out of you, and your children forever,  and the horse you rode in on.

Conservatives can get good results from not submitting to disparagement

  • Usual suspects in the media did a number on a pro-life youth. He responded by suing their pants off
  • CEO of Chick-Fil -A further “clarifies” = admits his company Filleted Up

Young Nickolas stood his ground while taking the abuse of a punk adult protestor.  The mainstream media portrayed Nickolas as being the aggressor.  They made no effort to find out the truth as they rushed to portray the March for Life demonstration to be comprised of a bunch of white racist thugs.  Several of the outlets have been sued with CNN now settling.  We hope the rest get adverse judgements.

CNN confirms a settlement has been reached with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann

CINCINNATI – The CNN has reached a settlement with Nick Sandmann, a northern Kentucky high school student who had sued the news outlet saying it defamed him.

A CNN spokesperson confirmed Tuesday with The Enquirer that a settlement was reached.

The network would not comment on the details of the settlement. Nick’s lawyers did not respond to phone calls or emails at the time of this report.

Sandmann, a student at Covington Catholic High School, became part of a social media firestorm last January when he was filmed with Nathan Phillips at a demonstraction in Washington, D.C.

A video shows Nick and Phillips standing close to each other in a crowd. Nick stares at Phillips as he plays a drum. The situation unfolded after the March for Life on Jan. 18, which Sandmann and his classmates attended. Phillips was attending the Indigenous Peoples March.

Nick Sandmann lawsuit:Judge to allow portion of suit against Washington Post to continue

Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann faces Native American Nathan Phillips in Washington on Jan. 18, 2019.

The Sandmann lawsuit against CNN, seeking $275 million, was filed in March and stated: “CNN brought down the full force of its corporate power, influence, and wealth on Nicholas by falsely attacking, vilifying, and bullying him despite the fact that he was a minor child.”

Sandmann has also sued NBC and the Washington Post. His lawyers have said they also intend to sue Gannett, which owns The Enquirer.

American Family Association announces response from Chick Fil-A CEO:

Dear Friend,

I want to thank you for your support of our Chick-fil-A campaign over the past few weeks. Your signature on our petition to Chick-fil-A had a tremendous impact and I’m glad to share this news with you.

Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A chairman and CEO, responded to my personal letter and the more than 116,000 people who signed AFA’s petition asking the company for clarification after Chick-fil-A stunned much of the evangelical community by changing its corporate giving.

In November, Chick-fil-A announced that it would not be donating money to the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Homosexual activist organizations had hammered away at the two Christian non-profit groups because their doctrinal statements supported a biblical view of human sexuality and marriage. In turn, Chick-fil-A was accused of supporting “hate” because of the corporate giving.

In my personal letter to Mr. Cathy, I asked him two questions: (1) Will Chick-fil-A publicly state that it does not believe the Salvation Army and FCA are hate groups because of the ministries’ beliefs about sexuality, marriage, and family? (2) Will you publicly state that Chick-fil-A will not hesitate to fund these two ministries again, should the opportunity arise in the future?

Mr. Cathy’s written response included this statement: “We inadvertently discredited several outstanding organizations that have effectively served communities for years.”

This response was a welcomed clarification. It appears that Mr. Cathy understands how many evangelicals perceived the company’s decision, as he stated that these Christian groups were “inadvertently discredited.” The fact that Dan Cathy called these two Christian groups “outstanding organizations” will mean a lot to evangelicals.

However, I also mentioned in my initial letter that Chick-fil-A stated that the company would support Covenant House, a ministry to homeless youth, including homosexual young people. While it is admirable to help hurting youth in desperate circumstances –– including those who are LGBTQ –– Covenant House also openly promotes homosexuality as normal, natural, and healthy. This was evident in Covenant House’s participation in the NYC gay pride parade and a number of other efforts that make it clear the ministry does not hold to a biblical view of human sexuality.

As a result, AFA will continue to monitor Chick-fil-A’s corporate giving, at least for the foreseeable future. We believe our supporters rely on us to do so.

Most of the Christians I know love Chick-fil-A and want to trust the company to uphold scriptural principles. We have all been huge fans of Chick-fil-A, and want that to continue.

If our mission resonates with you, please consider supporting our work financially with a tax-deductible donation. The easiest way to do that is through online giving. It is easy to use, and most of all, it is secure.

Thank you,

Tim Wildmon, President
American Family Association

Hoping inertia can be redirected?

Melancholy article at American Greatness by culture commentator Anthony Esolen.
The Inertial States of America .  He thoughtfully embellishes the theme but this takeaway quote says much:

Nothing unites us now, not religious faith, not cultural memory, not a common understanding of virtue, not the natural goodness of manhood and womanhood, not children, not the elderly, nothing. We do not seek “the naked bedrock of character and capacity,” because they are judgments against us.

We are the Inertial States of America. I wish it were not so.

We hope or pray that in time, there will be a sustainable extensive reformation, one that retains and emphasizes the cultural qualities that made America great.  Trump’s election revealed substantial longing  for that but it was so very close and the opponents those who  denigrate us, him, indeed our nationality are powerful, intense, vested , unscrupulous indeed ruthless. A Trump/Trumpism re-election (an effective conservatism as it turns out) could set us on a course of respect, even restoration of key wholesome values.

But without that reelection everything will be torn down with a vengeance with a mind to methodically root-out, destroy, erase and deny political and cultural avenues that would allow us effective means to fight. They will have learned their lesson.

Trump’s first election indicated more than a vestige of “Americanism” remained but with only one term many achievements become ephemeral.  A sustained reformation will require focus on classical education and more dismantling of the means of big-government control and institutional leftist power.  That means involvement and sacrifice by conservatives.

We think the chances for substantial reformation have grown, from embers in the hearts of citizens, fanned by Trump administration achievements –  promises kept –  a longing for something far deeper than what leftist one-world government activists can offer.  But all remains tenuous. It is conceivable that the inertia can be redirected on itself.  The next election here in the “United” States might determine of that can be.

Briefings Tomorrow

Congressional leaders are demanding to know more about the intelligence behind the president’s order to take out Iran’s terror chief, Gen. Qassem Soleimani.  They will get that opportunity tomorrow afternoon in a briefing from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley and CIA Director Gina Haspel.

Of course, such intelligence should remain secret, but Capitol Hill leaks like a sieve.  I expect leaks will occur, especially if there is anything that can remotely be twisted as being detrimental to the president.

But I am still reeling from those asking why the president didn’t brief congressional leaders like Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff PRIOR to the strike on Soleimani.

Well, Pelosi and Schiff believe the president is a traitor who stole the election with the help of Russia.  Perhaps that is why he might be hesitant to brief them in advance.

Meanwhile, there continues to be a lot of talk in Congress about tying the president’s hands, whether it’s a War Powers resolution ordering the president to cease hostilities against Iran or repealing the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) that passed in the wake of 9/11, giving the president broad authority to respond to terrorist threats in the region.

Progressives have shown little interest in any of that until now.  In fact, Barack Obama carried out nearly 3,000 strikes without congressional authorization, at least in the way many liberals are now defining the term.  Tehran must be pleased with the progressive left’s efforts to resist Donald Trump.

The Manipulation of Language

We see all the time how the left manipulates language in order to influence the conclusions people reach during public policy debates.  For example, any debate about abortion in the “mainstream” media is almost always presented as a dispute between “pro-choice” and “anti-choice” activists — not “pro-life” activists.

Unfortunately, we’re seeing the same manipulation being used now in the coverage of Soleimani.  For example, numerous progressives, including Senator Bernie Sanders and Obama National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, have said recently that the president “assassinated” Soleimani.

Sanders even went so far as to compare Soleimani’s death to Vladimir Putin’s assassinations of political dissidents.  So now Soleimani’s a dissident?!

The left knows that the word “assassination” has a generally negative connotation, as well as a specific meaning under international law.  But Soleimani was no innocent.

He was a designated terrorist and a top official of a hostile power who is responsible for hundreds of American deaths.  As Rabbi Shmuley Boteach noted, Soleimani was “an architect of Bashar Assad’s genocidal war against the Syrian people . . . one of the most guilty men on earth.”

Multiple leftist commentators have questioned the legality of the strike against Soleimani, suggesting that it could be a “war crime.” And they are accusing the president of threatening additional “war crimes.”  Nothing President Trump has said or done is a war crime.

There are war crimes being committed all over the earth, usually by communists or Islamic jihadists.  None of that is ever called “war crimes” by the left.  They only use that term to describe actions by conservative presidents to resist our enemies. 

Hamas and Hezbollah, Iran’s terrorist proxies once directed by Soleimani, position rockets in civilian neighborhoods, near schools and mosques so that if Israel responds to rocket attacks, Israel can be accused of war crimes.  But hiding weapons in civilian areas is a war crime, and it isn’t a war crime to fire back.

The third example is not a word but the misuse of a phrase.  All over social media many are suggesting that the president is getting us into World War III.  If you believe that then you have no idea what World Wars I and II were like. 

This is a dispute with the Islamic Republic of Iran, which wants to destroy Israel and the United States.  That’s not World War III. 
 
But if you want to talk about world wars, let’s not forget that World War II began because a lot of world leaders were unwilling to confront aggression by Nazi Germany.  Their desire to appease led to the most horrible war in the history of mankind.
 
Like Winston Churchill, Donald Trump is standing up to evil.  His left-wing critics, like the appeasers of World War II, want to lie prostrate at the feet of men like Qassem Soleimani, hoping that nothing terrible will happens to us.

War hero, and now retired mayor, Pete Buttigieg

  • About his military matriculation and deployment
  • The stuff SEALs are made of 
  • Honorary Trident in the offing “109 times outside the fence”
  • But first the cringy dance craze Pete’s peeps are in and out of tune with

More seriously: via the Wall Street Journal by Greg Kelly and Katie Horgan: See full article at the Wall Street Journal.

Buttigieg’s War and ‘The Shortest Way Home’     
Arriving in Afghanistan, he thought of John Kerry. It’s a telling comparison, and an unflattering one.

When Mayor Pete Buttigieg talks about his military service, his opponents fall silent, the media fall in love, and his political prospects soar. Veterans roll their eyes.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Mr. Buttigieg Sunday if President Trump “deserves some credit” for the strike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani. “No,” the candidate replied, “not until we know whether this was a good decision and how this decision was made.” He questioned whether “it was the right strategic move” and said his own judgment “is informed by the experience of having been on one of those planes headed into a war zone.”

But Mr. Buttigieg’s stint in the Navy isn’t as impressive as he makes it out to be. His 2019 memoir is called “Shortest Way Home,” an apt description of his military service. He entered the military through a little-used shortcut: direct commission in the reserves. The usual route to an officer’s commission includes four years at Annapolis or another military academy or months of intense training at Officer Candidate School. ROTC programs send prospective officers to far-flung summer training programs and require military drills during the academic year. Mr. Buttigieg skipped all that—no obstacle courses, no weapons training, no evaluation of his ability or willingness to lead. Paperwork, a health exam and a background check were all it took to make him a naval officer.

He writes that his reserve service “will always be one of the highlights of my life, but the price of admission was an ongoing flow of administrativia.” That’s not how it’s supposed to work. The paperwork isn’t the price of admission but the start of a long, grueling test.

Combat veterans have grumbled for decades about the direct-commission route. The politically connected and other luminaries who receive immediate commissions are disparaged as “pomeranian princes.” Former Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus became a Naval Reserve officer in 2018 at age 46. Hunter Biden, son of the former vice president, accepted a direct commission but was discharged after one month of service for failing a drug test.

Mr. Buttigieg was assigned to a comfortable corner of military life, the Naval Station in Great Lakes, Ill. Paperwork and light exercise were the order of the day. “Working eight-hour days,” he writes, was “a relaxing contrast from my day job, and spending time with sailors from all walks of civilian life, was a healthy antidote to the all absorbing work I had in South Bend.” He calls it “a forced, but welcome, change of pace from the constant activity of being mayor.”

During a November debate, Mr. Buttigieg proclaimed: “I have the experience of being commanded into a war zone by an American president.” The reality isn’t so grandiose. In 2013, he writes, he “made sure my chain of command knew that I would rather go sooner than later, and would rather go to Afghanistan than anywhere else.”

Arriving there, he “felt a sense of purpose, maybe even idealism, that can only be compared to the feeling of starting on a political campaign. I thought back to 2004 and John Kerry’s presidential run, and then remembered that it was during the campaign that I saw the iconic footage of his testimony as the spokesman for Vietnam Veterans against the War.”

The comparison is telling. Mr. Buttigieg has just started his time in a war he says he’s idealistic about, but he daydreams about John Kerry protesting Vietnam after he got back. Many veterans detest Mr. Kerry’s “iconic” 1971 testimony, in which he slandered American servicemen. But it did launch a decadeslong political career.

Mr. Buttigieg spent some five months in Afghanistan, where he writes that he remained less busy than he’d been at City Hall, with “more time for reflection and reading than I was used to back home.” He writes that he would take “a laptop and a cigar up to the roof at midnight to pick up a Wi-Fi signal and patch via Skype into a staff meeting at home.” The closest he came to combat was ferrying other staffers around in an SUV: In his campaign kickoff speech last April he referred to “119 trips I took outside the wire, driving or guarding a vehicle.” That’s a strange thing to count. Combat sorties in an F-18 are carefully logged. Driving a car isn’t.

After the welcome-home rally, glowing press, a few more years of light service, the mayor left the reserves. But his bragging rights were assured. Candidate Buttigieg takes every opportunity to lean in on those months in Afghanistan. Questions ranging from student debt to Colin Kaepernick to gun control prompt him to reference his military stint, sometimes indignantly.

“I don’t need lessons from you on courage,” he lectured former Rep. Beto O’Rourke in an October debate, “political or personal.” Two months later he told Sen. Amy Klobuchar, “Let me tell you about my relationship to the First Amendment. It is part of the Constitution that I raised my right hand and swore to defend with my life. That is my experience, and it may not be the same as yours, but it counts, Senator, it counts.”

Debate moderators and other journalists—hardly a veteran among them—eagerly sell Mr. Buttigieg’s narrative. Debate moderators often point out that he served in Afghanistan and, if Tulsi Gabbard isn’t there, is the only veteran on the stage. When Ms. Gabbard is present, the moderators seldom mention her military experience, which dwarfs Mr. Buttigieg’s.

In our experience, those who did the most in war talk it about it the least. Serving in a support or noncombat role is honorable, but it shouldn’t be the basis of a presidential campaign.

Mr. Kelly, a host at Newsmax TV, served as a jet pilot for the Marine Corps. He was on active duty, 1991-2000 and in the reserves, 2000-11. Ms. Horgan runs a New York logistics consulting practice. She served as an active duty Marine officer, 2006-12 and was deployed in Iraq for 13 months.

We delved a little more into Buttigieg’s deployment and find that his deployment involved assignment to a chaplain function in Kabul  (check out the video that somehow makes for the hagiography about his military experience).  His armed service activity “outside the wire” was delivering gift packages to areas of the city.  Apparently a requirement was to have people along who had qualified with a rifle in some way (note Buttigieg never actually went through basic training) and what else was the Navy going to do with him?  This was not Trident wearing SEAL stuff.   A civilian aid worker was in more danger on a daily basis.

One at a time

The Iowa presidential and precinct caucuses are rapidly approaching — set for Monday February 3.  It is time we rigorously dealt with the Democrat event by offering helpful takes about their presidential candidates as that party is the only one seriously contested as to presidential preference.  We will do so for the top contenders in that party knowing our influence is far and wide with Democrats. We regret that we may not get to all of them, or maybe bother anymore after the next post, but that’s just us. If we can help a candidate in the process, well our name will be legion in political circles.

Readers know of our long stated preference for Joe Biden and we have provided a number of erudite posts extolling his many virtues. Nevertheless you can depend on us to be  entirely objective.

We see that at this writing there is a three-way tie for lead going into the caucuses with Joe, Bernie and Pete all at 23%.  Liz is still a contender at 15%.  Hailing from Minnesota, a virtual “favorite them” (son is not gender neutral), Amy is registering at 7%.  The rest including Tom who has and is spending more money on ads than Democrats can conceive of, outside of taxing the middle class, are registering in statistical error range — meaning I could have thrown my name in and registered as much.

It should be noted that in 2016, Hillary Clinton got 49.8% of the vote in Iowa, and Bernie Sanders got 49.6%. That says something of the flavor of the Iowa Democrats four years ago —   Marxist —  Bordeaux or Burgundy — reds with neither any better tasting.   They will likely live with any cheating as they did before (see here and here and lots of other Democrat sites posting back then). Democrats will live with cheating because that is what they all do and they are content to choose between Marxists of various cask or region.

Our first in the series is up next.  Pete “John Boy” Buttigieg (referring to John Kerry of course)

STRIKE BY US UNITES IRAN’S ALLIES —

And who might they be . . . A few client states of Iran  and  Democrats of course

Meant to Cripple Iran’s Clout; US Strike Unites its (Iran’s) Allies 

“The strike unified the resistance forces and made combatting the United States a priority,” said Qassem Qassir, a Lebanese expert in Islamic movements.

“The assassination was a strategic mistake, and the response will be across the region — not just limited to Iraq,” said Qassir.

Who else, except the DC Establishment, along with Yahoo would take such great satisfaction in this headline? As if ‘Iran’s allies needed “uniting” to continue the war against the US!

Baghdad (AFP) – The US killing of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was meant to cripple Tehran’s clout in the Middle East, but analysts see the allies of the Islamic Republic closing rank instead.

As the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, Soleimani oversaw Tehran’s interventions in regional power struggles from Lebanon and Iraq to Syria and Yemen.

Washington had hoped his killing in a Baghdad drone strike Friday would deal a blow to Iran and its network of proxies — but the plan appears to have backfired by uniting pro-Iran factions under an “axis of resistance”.

“The strike unified the resistance forces and made combatting the United States a priority,” said Qassem Qassir, a Lebanese expert in Islamic movements.

“The assassination was a strategic mistake, and the response will be across the region — not just limited to Iraq,” said Qassir.

Indeed, pro-Iran factions in Iraq have seized on the strike to secure a political and popular revival.

Kataeb Hezbollah, a vehemently anti-American armed faction in Iraq, said the strike was “the beginning of the end of the US presence in the region”.

Iraqi populist cleric Moqtada Sadr swiftly reactivated his Mahdi Army, the notorious militia that fought US troops after the American-led invasion of 2003.

“The Iraqi factions of the resistance must hold an immediate meeting to form the International Resistance Regiments,” he tweeted, telling his fighters to “be ready”.
– ‘Turn the skies to hell’ –

Qais al-Khazali, a paramilitary leader and bitter rival of Sadr’s, echoed his calls for fighting units to mobilise following the strike on Soleimani.

Khazali also threatened US troops who have been stationed across Iraq since 2014 as part of the global coalition battling the Islamic State group.

On Sunday, Iraq’s parliament voted in favour of ousting US troops although the decision rests with the government.

“If you don’t leave, or if you procrastinate in leaving, you will find a strong Iraqi response that will shake the ground beneath your feat and turn the skies above you into hell,” Khazali warned.

Even Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, Iraq’s highest Shiite authority, broke with standard protocol to mourn Soleimani.
