'What Difference Does It Make?': Harry Reid Bristles At Bergdahl Trade Timing Query

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid scolded reporters for questioning the timing of the phone call from the White House notifying him of President Obama’s decision to exchange five Taliban prisoners for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yep, the panic is on!

Wasserman Schultz Slams ‘Nitpicking’ GOP: ‘We Should Not be Second-Guessing the Administration’

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee accused Republicans of “grasping at straws” in their criticism of the Bowe Bergdahl case and “nitpicking” over the number of Taliban exchanged for his release.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is panic inside the Democratic party!

FLASHBACK 2006 - State Dept. Probes Use of Bombs

The State Department said yesterday that it has begun a preliminary investigation into allegations that Israel violated U.S. rules prohibiting the use of American-made cluster bombs in civilian areas during the recent war in Lebanon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Quite a contrast to the US government praising Kiev's "restraint" as it uses heavy weapons against the Ukrainian people!

If lying caused global warming, Obama would already have cooked this planet

Continuing his scaremongering about the end of the world vis-à-vis global warming, Barack Obama decided once again decided to prove that facts mean absolutely nothing to him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason that Obama is back to using the phrase "global warming" and trying to claim CO2 harms health is that this whole human-caused global warming hoax is all about demonizing CO2, linking it to human behavior, then hitting the nation with carbon taxes, to fix a problem which doesn't really exist.

The brief attempt to re-brand as climate change ran into trouble when people pointed out that CO2 is not to blame for the record-setting winters we have all seen in recent years.

Obama is desperate for a new source of revenue now that Obamacare has cratered in terms of the new tax revenues it was supposed to provide.

Obama: 'Governments Exist to Lift Up Their People'

Hailing Poland's embrace of democracy on Wednesday, President Obama offered his view of government's central role in the lives of all people.

"Here in Poland we see a vibrant press and a growing civil society that holds leaders accountable -- because governments exist to lift up their people, not to hold them down," Obama said to applause.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tell that to the Occupy Wall Street people!

FLASHBACK - Vietnam MIAs: Ghosts Return to Haunt McCain and the US Press

The briefing took place in 1973, right before the final peace agreement between the US and Hanoi. What the Vietnamese general told the Russians was that his government was intent on getting war reparations, $3.25 billion in reconstruction money, pledged by the US in peace negotiations headed on the US side by Henry Kissinger. The general told the Russians that Hanoi would hold back a large number of POWs until the money arrived. It seems the Vietnamese had successfully used the same tactic with the French, to elicit promised funds, after which POWs were transferred.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is on TV now, justifying his bypass of Congress to trade five Taliban officials from Guantanamo for Bergdahl, using as his justification the "sacred principle" that we do not leave anyone behind.

This is, of course, nonsense. The US abandoned 600 POWs in Vietnam to avoid paying $3.25 billion in war reparations.

This trade for Bergdahl was another desperate PR stunt by the White House to offset the VA scandal, and with Bergdahl's being revealed as a deserter and defector, has become a scandal in itself.

Congress twice rejected release of Taliban from Gitmo in trade for Bergdahl

Obama’s aides met with unanimous opposition from Congress when they first raised the possibility of releasing five Taliban guerrillas from Guantanamo Bay in 2011 and 2012, and administration officials publicly and repeatedly vowed to return to Capitol Hill before making any final moves.

But with what they now say was a closing window to secure the release of ArmySgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Mr. Obama made the call to bypass Congress and make a deal swapping the five Taliban fighters in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl — and sparking a major constitutional battle with Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And with Bergdahl now revealed as having deserted, this latest Obama PR stunt has blown up in his face.

Leaked Obama workout tape: Well... that was awkward

A leaked video of President Obama pumping iron in a Polish gym has got social media in a spin. Far from complimenting the leader on his workout, people poked fun at the ‘Nerd-in-Chief’ for emboldening the enemy with his ‘weedy’ weights routine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, we have Obama pumping ... tin.

Then there is this other guy...

All kidding aside, this looks like another desperate and pathetic PR stunt that has backfired on Obama.

Ouch: Bergdahl’s Home Town Cancels Plans For Homecoming Celebration…

Data Discrepancies in ObamaCare Signups Could Affect 2 Million People

More than 2 million people who got health insurance under President Barack Obama's law have data discrepancies that could jeopardize coverage for some, a government document shows.

About 1 in 4 people who signed up have discrepancies, creating a huge paperwork jam for the feds and exposing some consumers to repayment demands, or possibly even loss of coverage, if they got too generous a subsidy.

NBC, CBS Skip Latest Developments in VA Scandal as It Explodes to New States

The Veterans Affairs scandal engulfing the Obama administration has spread into Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, but only ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday found time to cover the latest developments. GMA news reader Amy Robach revealed, "We're learning those secret waiting lists were also kept at ten facilities in these four Midwestern western states with nearly 100 veterans waiting more than three months for treatment." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

Despite the eight hours of air time available to the three network morning shows, CBS and NBC avoided the story. ABC allowed 21 seconds. Obviously, the prisoner swap involving a U.S. soldier and five Taliban terrorists has rightly dominated the news. However, The four-hour-long Today show still found time to devote five minutes and 13 seconds on the subject of "six months to six pack" abs. CBS This Morning offered three minutes and 50 seconds to the phenomenon of "urban farming." Clearly, time was available.

US may soon train Kiev’s military, Obama tells Ukraine’s president-elect

The US has pledged additional military help to Ukraine as well as potential training of its law enforcement and military personnel. President Obama’s vows comes as Kiev continues air strikes as a part of its military operation in southeastern Ukraine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, the "advisers." Same stunt that got us into the war in Vietnam.

U.S. reaffirms: No weapons will go to Ukraine

Friend or foe?

Currently, according to the agreements made after World War II, 94 U.S. military bases are deployed in Japan which is about 47 thousand American soldiers and officers. And their main goal is "to provide security for Japan and maintain peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region".

And two-thirds of all U.S. troops in Japan are deployed on a small island of Okinawa (34 U.S. military facilities, part of which were built in the city), which is less than 1% of whole Japan. Even a joke appeared among locals that "not U.S. bases are located on Okinawa, but Okinawa is located on U.S. military base". And behavior of U.S. militaries often causes resentment of local population and demands for withdrawal.

TRINITITE! Why Iran will not attack the US or Israel.

Even if Iraq had possessed weapons of mass destruction (which we now know they did not), and even if Iraq had the long range ICBMs to reach across the Atlantic with (which we know they did not), Iraq would still not have been a threat to the US because any attack with a weapon of mass destruction would be national suicide.

Oaksterdam University Raid 'Payback' For California's Marijuana Legalization Effort?

The man who bankrolled California's closest shot yet at fully legalizing marijuana, Prop. 19, saw his Oaksterdam University cannabis college in Oakland raided by federal authorities yesterday.
And pot advocates are fuming.

The Drug Policy Alliance suggests the raid by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Internal Revenue Service might have served one possible goal:
"Payback" for the 2010 legalization effort that failed but made a good try of it. The ballot effort was backed by Richard Lee, the millionaire owner of Oaksterdam.

Guenter Grass, German Nobel Winner, Criticizes Israel Over Iran Tensions

"The nuclear power Israel is endangering the already fragile world peace," Grass wrote in his poem titled:

"What must be said"

The 84-year-old Grass said he had been prompted to put pen to paper by Berlin's recent decision to sell Israel a submarine able to "send all-destroying warheads where the existence of a single nuclear bomb is unproven."

"The nuclear power Israel is endangering the already fragile world peace," he wrote. His poem specifically criticized Israel's "claim to the right of a first strike" against Iran.

In Defense of Helen Thomas: What’s Wrong With History?

Helen Thomas’s recent request to purchase a table at the upcoming White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) annual dinner has been rejected.

In a comment on that story I said, “It’s hard to imagine anything more wrong than this.”

I base my opinion on the fact that the 91-year-old Thomas, a former WHCA president, is unique among American journalists, having covered 10 different presidential administrations in a career stretching back to Dwight Eisenhower.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:

Obama Justice Department under deadline to answer court over Obama’s health law comments

The Obama Justice Department has roughly 24 hours to explain to a federal appeals court whether the administration believes judges have the power to overturn federal laws — in the latest escalation between the two branches of government over the federal health care overhaul.
A three-judge panel for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ordered the Justice Department to explain by Thursday at noon whether the administration believes judges have that authority. The challenge came after President Obama cautioned the Supreme Court against overturning the health care law and warned that such an act would be “unprecedented.”

Obama Slipping: Black America Waking Up - To the Nightmare

Obama Slipping: Black America Waking Up - To the Nightmare
Wed, 08/10/2011 - 13:33 — Glen Ford
Having invested so much in the Obama persona – and endlessly reaffirmed that commitment in countless settings with fellow African Americans – it is inevitable that Black folks undergo the harshest “withdrawal” experience imaginable. The realization that the dream was a chimera is one thing, but to awaken to a catastrophe in which the Great Black Hope is revealed as the Great Black Betrayer, is another magnitude of pain. It will be an ugly – and uneven – spectacle.
