THE MEANING OF 'IS'
In “Hard Choices,” Hillary claims that there were “scores of attackers that night, almost certainly with differing motives. It is inaccurate to state that every single one of them was influenced by this hateful video. It is equally inaccurate to state that none of them were.”
Since it’s impossible to disprove a negative, it would be equally inaccurate to state that none of the attackers were influenced by a frustrated passion for Hillary Clinton. Since there’s no way to disprove the possibility that at least one of the attackers was motivated by the video, by love for Hillary or by hallucinations induced by bath salts, it’s inaccurate to state that none of the attackers carried a torch for Hillary, were angry at a YouTube video or were tripping on bath salts.
You expect to hear that kind of argument from a college freshman who just took Logic I and is trying to explain that she didn’t finish her essay because nothing can truly be finished. But you don’t expect to have to listen to this kind of childish drivel from the frontrunner for the presidency of the United States.

HILLARY IS A ROLE MODEL FOR YOUNG GIRLS, WOMEN AND CHILD RAPISTS
In her interview with The Daily Beast, she recounted the details of her attack in 1975 at age 12 and the consequences it had for both her childhood and adult life. A virgin before the assault, she spent five days afterwards in a coma, months recovering from the beating that accompanied the rape, and over 10 years in therapy. The doctors told her she would probably never be able to have children.
Now 52, she has never married or had children.
Clinton also wrote that a child psychologist told her that children in early adolescence “tend to exaggerate or romanticize sexual experiences,” especially when they come from “disorganized families, such as the complainant.”
Is being beaten into a coma Hillary Clinton’s idea of a romanticized sexual experience?
“Hillary Clinton took me through Hell,” the victim said.
“You are supposed to be for women? You call that [being] for women, what you done to me? And I hear you on tape laughing.”
“How many other lies has she told to get where she’s at today? If she becomes president, is she gonna be telling the world the truth? No.”
But Clintonworld is on this latest "Rape Victim Eruption" using its classical methodology.
jbloor: Okay; so the Koch Bros. have gotten hold of some poor hillbilly who has no understanding of the legal process, a hazy memory of a childhood incident, and is dirt poor and will say most anything for a few bucks…
Even if this lady’s complaints were cogent or logical, Mrs. Clinton’s record on women’s rights and advocacy is at least 99% stellar.
Remember the Democratic Party is the party that cares about women and working people.

Eric K. Shinseki, who resigned as secretary in the wake of the VA scandal of the sin of omission, traveled the country to boast of the green initiative. In one instance, he traveled to Massachusetts to flick the switch at a half-million-dollar windmill project at the Massachusetts National Cemetery. “Nationally,” he said, “VA continues to expand its investment in renewable sources of energy to promote our nation’s energy independence, save taxpayer dollars, and improve care for our veterans and their families.
VA facilities have become littered with every scheme to banish carbon dioxide short of requiring visitors to hold their breath. Calverton National Cemetery spent $742,034 on solar panels. Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery spent $787,308. Not to be out-greened, the Riverside National Cemetery spent $1.3 million on its solar system.

Shinseki arrived in person at the dedication ceremony to flip the switch on the cemetery wind turbine.
“Nationally, VA continues to expand its investment in renewable sources of energy to promote our Nation’s energy independence, save taxpayer dollars, and improve care for our Veterans and their families,” he said.
...The Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery’s solar panels cost $787,308. According to the press release, the solar panels in the cemetery would "reduce greenhouse gas emissions"...
$742,034 worth of solar panels was put in at the Calverton National Cemetery. The San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery got an $800,000 solar panel setup. The Riverside National Cemetery got a $1.3 million solar system.

The surrounded Americans said they were under ISIS fire from small arms, AK47s and rocket propelled grenades, or RPGs.
The contractors had been able to hold the base, but those on the scene reported it was only a matter of time before the ISIS terrorists succeeded in breaking through the perimeter.
WND learned from sources that the jihadists closed down escape routes, and the U.S. Air Force was in a stand-down position. U.S. forces were not assisting even with air cover so a private extradition flight could land for a rescue, the sources said.

Mali showed that Afghanistan was yesterday’s news. Al Qaeda franchises no longer needed to rely on a Taliban to carve out a territory for their training camps. They could become their own Taliban and seize an entire country...
Al Qaeda in Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, now envisions a vast territory under its rule. It is surging in Syria and Iraq and has reached into Lebanon to strike at Hezbollah. There is little to mourn about Sunni and Shiite terrorist groups killing each other, but it would be wishful thinking to imagine that a vastly expanded Al Qaeda with access to advanced weaponry and cities full of manpower will not eventually direct that weaponry at the United States.

The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.
A State Department Cable classified “Confidential” report says the following: “Benghazi Meeting With Libyan Muslim Brotherhood: On April 2  Mission Benghazi met with a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood steering committee, who will speak at the April 5 Carnegie Endowment `Islamist in Power’ conference in Washington, D.C.

HEMINGWAY RIPPED OFF HEDGES
On page 40 of the hardcover first edition, Hedges writes:
“In combat the abstract words glory, honor, courage often become obscene and empty. They are replaced by the tangible images of war, the names of villages, mountains, roads, dates, and battalions.”
The rhythm of the language, the ideas, and the sentiment, Palaima concluded, were from Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms. The passage in A Farewell to Arms reads:
“Abstract words such as glory, honor, courage or hallow were obscene beside the concrete names of villages, the numbers of roads, the names of rivers, the numbers of regiments and dates.”
Finding no citation of Hemingway in Hedges’s text, endnotes or bibliography, Palaima alerted Hedges’s publishing house, PublicAffairs, in an e-mail dated June 8, 2003, as to what he hoped was “an inadvertent plagiarism.”
Thus, on page 40 of the paperback edition, the text now reads:
“The lofty words that inspire people to war—duty, honor, glory—swiftly become repugnant and hollow. They are replaced by the hard, specific images of war, by the prosaic names of villages and roads.”

CBS DOUBLES DOWN ON JOURNALISM
Goldman’s parents are Obama donors and her mother served as a co-chair for Obama’s team in the 2008 campaign. Her daughter, Julianna, was known as one of the “Obama Originals” for her reporting on the 2008 campaign.
Julianna Goldman got three interviews with Obama despite her lack of name recognition, including his first post-election interview.
Again unusual since you probably never even heard of her name before this. And this wasn’t the first time that Obama went all out to help out Julianna Goldman.

It’s just so confusing. Do you feed your kids bologna sandwiches or pieces of wet cardboard? Can you give them PlayDoh on a dead mackerel?
Modern grads of Ivy League colleges don’t have the time to figure all this stuff out. That’s why there are government bureaucrats who tell schools what to feed kids so they don’t die of cardboard overdose.
Michelle Obama is assuming that since she has a degree from Harvard and can’t figure out how to feed her kids, moms without degrees must be feeding their kids bits of dead rat on a stick.

“I thought to myself, if a Princeton and Harvard-educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids, then what are other parents going through who don’t have access to the information I have?” she recalled.
Try a cookbook! (If you can read at all.)
This is a great demonstration of what Michelle and her ilk think of Americans. In reality, she is dumber that 4 boxes of rocks. And the collective government is a bit dumber! Proof? :: they're politicians! Had to do politics because not able to do anything productive.

HOPE AND GENDER CHANGE
Medical science is making bold new leaps every day. Not only is there a new medication out that is just like the old medication, except it costs 10 times as much, but the American Medical Association has decided that gender is purely imaginary.
"The AMA said transgender people should be able to switch the sex designation on their birth certificates without having sex-change surgery."
"Most states make the operations a prerequisite. But the new AMA policy acknowledges that gender identity doesn’t always match a person’s birth anatomy."
For thousands of years, human ignorance convinced us that there were two genders. Now the AMA says that gender is imaginary. You can be any gender you want. Change gender every week. Or every day.
We’re in Hopechangeistan now. Biology, like economics and military science, are purely imaginary fields. “Science” says so.

In between golfing and fundraising, Obama is taking Al Qaeda’s takeover of Iraq absolutely seriously. There are meetings, some of which he may have attended, and multiple statements emphasizing that all the options are on the table.
Like the option to do nothing. Or the option to do absolutely nothing.
Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to the Middle East and Europe where he will talk about the situation in Iraq.
That’s great. Kerry talking has solved many problems in the past. Such as his prospect of becoming president. The one thing a massive Al Qaeda advance needs is Kerry talking to people about it.

TERROR IN BUNKER 13
According to the UNMOVIC final report in 2007, the rockets “may be both filled and unfilled, armed or unarmed, in good condition or deteriorated.” In the worst-case scenario, the munitions could contain as much as 15,000 liters of sarin. Although it is likely that the nerve agent has degraded substantially after nearly two decades of storage under suboptimal conditions, UNMOVIC cautioned that “the levels of degradation of the sarin fill in the rockets cannot be determined without exploring the bunker and taking samples from intact warheads.” If the sarin remains highly toxic and many of the rockets are still intact, they could pose a proliferation risk.

Ted Cruz Calls for End of Aid to PLO/Hamas Over US Hostage
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience in Toronto on Monday that she supported President Barack Obama’s decision to work with the Palestinian Authority’s new unity government, even though it includes the Hamas terror organization, because the new governing officials are “largely technocrats.”
“I think it’s a holding position,” Clinton said, describing Obama’s stance. “And the reason it’s a holding position is that the makeup of this joint [Fatah-Hamas] enterprise are largely technocrats. They’re academics and they’re business people. They don’t represent sort of, what you might call hard-core Hamas leadership.”

A HOT TIME IN THE DESERT
In tribal societies, strength is the only virtue that matters. In Islam virtue comes from the willingness to kill over the pettiest things, beard length, pant length and whether a woman has to cover one eye. Those who are willing to kill and die for even the pettiest aspects of Islam show how strong they are. The details don’t matter. Like all of Islam, they are expressions of control.
Those who mandate the most control show the most strength.
That is why Maliki was never going to be able to really work with Sunnis or vice versa. Trust is based on kinship. Islam substitutes religious kinship for ethnic kinship, but the impulse is still tribal. And tribals can’t run a military. They can only raid in gangs. They can only make short term alliances that end in betrayal by both sides.

If Saddam Hussein were still in power today, Al Qaeda might not be doing as well in Iraq, but it’s hard to say. His fellow Baathist dictator isn’t holding up that well in Syria. The only thing Saddam Hussein would have going for him is the Sunni factor, but the sectarian divisions would have raised the possibility of his military collapsing or being split, along with an Iranian invasion.
Saddam Hussein was a monster who liked to pile up military equipment, but that didn’t save Assad or Gaddafi. He had more firepower than they did, but that’s not much use if your army won’t stand and fight.
And Al Qaeda in Iraq has shown that it can be every bit the monster that Saddam was.
But it’s more likely that if Saddam Hussein were still in power, he would have cut a deal with Al Qaeda instead to destabilize his neighbors.

Man from Washington D.C. Now Prepared to Run as Opponent of D.C. Gridlock
State Sen. Matt McCoy of Des Moines cut off Nick Rhoades’ ankle bracelet at a gathering in Grinnell. The crowd was cheering. People were crying.
“It was totally moving and made all the work worthwhile,” said Terry Lowman, who attended the event. “To me, the drama played like Jesus washing the feet of the poor. I was so totally moved.”
Rhoades knew he had HIV since 1998 but he described himself as HIV-negative on the social network website where he met A.P. in 2008.
In 2009 Rhoades pleaded guilty to criminal transmission of HIV, and while his 25-year prison sentence was later reduced to probation for five years, he still has a felony criminal record and is required to be on the state’s sex-offender registry.

The Middle East is exploding. Nation states constructed by Sykes-Picot are, at last, reverting to their natural brutish sectarian lines. There are now more Syrian children in Lebanon than Lebanese children. The ethnic cleansing in Syria, conducted by the Alawites and their Shia allies in Iran, has resulted in 160, 000 deaths and over 3 million Syrian refugees, most of them Sunni, who are flooding into Jordan, upsetting the fragile demographics of that unstable country.
Huge chunks of Iraq and Syria are falling to transnational IslamoNazis seeking to establish a 7th century caliphate. Remember: Obama inherited a stable Iraq from President Bush, and then doomed that land to a Hobbesian fate when he announced the time and date of American withdrawal. The same will happen in Afghanistan where the Taliban will commit mass slaughters the moment American troops take their leave.
More smart power: We are being told that Obama is talking with—you can’t make this stuff up—the Iranians about stabilizing Iraq.

It helps the corporate bottom line by forcing the middle class to pick up the tab for medical care, which burden happens largely on the backs of nurses in emergency rooms (my daughter is a nurse in an ER), with medical insurance premiums escalating in order to pay for the service. Food stamps (so called SNAP) also factor into the calculus, as well as driver’s insurance (for uninsured motorists coverage).
It isn’t that there is no cost for low paid workers. It’s that the cost is borne by the middle class as welfare to corporations and the wealthy. The GOP is connected at the hip to such interests in terms of money, while the Democrats are connected in terms of future voters. With such powerful interests at stake, it should be obvious why the Southern border is a sieve and illegals are left in the country unmolested.

And let's not forget education. You paid six figures to live in a suburb without crime. Now you'll have to allocate land and build affordable housing. You will then have to pay for the education of families who have twice as many kids as you do and who are not going to be contributing anything.
And if you try to limit the rate of growth of school budgets (let's not even talk about cutting them) you're waging war on kids. Meanwhile your kids are experiencing the same quality of education as the schools you tried to get away from and hardly anyone speaks English anymore.
