Another CIA Own Goal?

Posted by msrb on October 29, 2009

Why the President Got Airborne Early Morning

President Barak Obama took off in the Marine One presidential helicopter shortly before midnight and was headed to a U.S. military base on Wednesday night, to meet the plane bringing home the bodies of 18 American soldiers and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents killed in Afghanistan recently.

Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, where the President made his unannounced late-night trip to, is home of the United States’ largest military mortuary and main point of entry for U.S. service members killed abroad, Reuters said.

But has the President previously met with the returning dead service members, or DEA agents for that matter? Why this time? Which group did he feel necessary to meet, the dead troops or lifeless DEA agents?

Here’s the “Logic Flowchart”

1.President Hamid Karzai is a corrupt individual, who should be ousted. Instead he may be re-elected as president in November in yet another round of election riddled with vote fraud.

2. Mr Ahmed Wali Karzai, the brother of the president K of Afghanistan, is a CIA”asset.” He has been on the CIA payroll for at least eight years,  The New York Times reported. He is also known to be a DRUG LORD. [See video: Karzai’s brother threatened McClatchy writer reporting Afghan drug story.]

3. Three of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) were killed on Monday, Oct. 26, 2009 in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan: Special Agent Michael Weston, Agent Forrest Leamon and  Special Agent Chad Michael. That’s what prompted the President to fly to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.

4. If you are supporting the Drug Lords, you don’t want the DEA agents  snooping around.

Why can’t I fix climate change without knowing the cause?

If you thought GW Bush was the “Bard” of the US “lawmakers,” you would, unfortunately, be wrong!

Is Gov Palin’s below average IQ a plus for Alaska?

“As we rely more and more on other countries that don’t care as much about the climate as we do, we’re allowing them to produce and to emit and even pollute more than America would ever stand for,” said Sarah Palin, when commenting on how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in Thursday’s U.S. vice presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

Lord, What about their Moose and Polar Bear?

Posted by msrb on September 21, 2008

Why You Should Be Afraid of Sarah Palin [& Co.,] VERY, VERY AFRAID!

Three thousand years on, except for a few changes in faces and places, the plot remains exactly the same!

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel [note that there was no such entity as Israel at the time when this is supposed to have happened,] how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.” (I Samuel 15:2-3). From: A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

[Substitute “Alaska,” “America,” “Iraq,” “Afghanistan” …  for “Amalek” in the above and you’ll get the idea!]

Lord, can we shoot their Moose and Polar Bear, and poison their water, too?

Sarah Palin: A Chronic Case of Cognitive Dissonance

Cognitive dissonance is described by psychologists as an unpleasant feeling or stress caused by holding two contradictory ideas simultaneously. According to the theory of cognitive dissonance, people have a fundamental cognitive drive to reduce this dissonance and increase the perception of consistency by modifying, or  rejecting one of the contradictory ideas, thus surrendering to the remaining idea. People seek consistency by searching through their own experiences, and by turning to other people for confirmation, a dangerous process known as groupthink.

Here are two contradictory thoughts:

  1. You shall NOT kill. (“Thou shall not kill” is the “Sixth Commandment” – Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy 5:17- New American Standard Bible)
  2. Put to death men and women, children and infants … (New International Version)

Which of the two contradictory thoughts above would you surrender to, if

I. Your peers attacked various “Amalekite” nations, country after country, year after year, and put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.”

II. Bloodsports turned you on!

III. The only way to fulfill your burning desires was by joining in with the “Israel first” lot.

Palin: ‘the Lord is coming soon’

The Big ‘L’: “No, I Ain’t comin’ back, while that lipstick woman, Sarah Palin, is down there!”

GOP Nomination of Sarah Palin: The Wrong Hit, Even By Reason of Insanity

Philip Munger, editor of the “Progressive Alaska” blog whose kids and Palin’s kids were in the same school district, has this to say about the Alaska Gov., Sarah Palin:

“One thing that hasn’t gotten much attention is Palin’s apparent belief in creationism. Around June 1997 she told me she thought the Earth was about 6,000 years old and that people and dinosaurs walked the Earth at the same time. In 2002 or 2003 (I know it was Nov. 11 since it was at a Veterans Day event) I asked her about this again since my kids and her kids were in the same school district and I was concerned about creationism being taught as if it were a form of science. This time she didn’t answer directly, but said that it didn’t matter since ‘the Lord is coming soon.'”

“What makes Palin such a cynical choice is that McCain doesn’t know her and doesn’t know what drives her. Until she was selected by the Karl Rove types running his campaign (like campaign manager and Rove protégé Steve Schmidt), McCain might not even have recognized her on the street. Instead, she’s a category selection, made for the crassest reasons by the same kinds of political operatives who brought us George W. Bush.” Paul Rogat Loeb, Alaska Report.

Sex, drug use and graft alleged in U.S. Interior Department

By Charlie Savage
Published: September 11, 2008

WASHINGTON – (IHT) As Congress prepares to debate expansion of drilling in taxpayer-owned coastal waters, the Interior Department agency that collects oil and gas royalties has been caught up in a wide-ranging ethics scandal – including allegations of financial self-dealing, accepting gifts from energy companies, cocaine use and sexual misconduct.

In three reports delivered to Congress on Wednesday, the department’s inspector general, Earl Devaney, found wrongdoing by a dozen current and former employees of the Minerals Management Service, which collects about $10 billion in royalties annually and is one of the government’s largest sources of revenue other than taxes.

“A culture of ethical failure” pervades the agency, Devaney wrote in a cover memo.

The reports portray a dysfunctional organization riddled with conflicts of interest, unprofessional behavior and a free-for-all atmosphere for much of the Bush administration’s watch.

The highest-ranking official criticized in the reports is Lucy Denett, the former associate director of minerals revenue management, who retired earlier this year as the inquiry was progressing. Read full story …

“When confronted by our investigators, none of the employees involved displayed remorse,” Devaney said.

It’s All About Big Oil, Stupid!

Posted by msrb on September 2, 2008

Palin using Alaska’s burgeoning population (!) as a pathetic excuse to destroy polar bears?

Our colleagues at FEWW reported earlier that “the state of Alaska [Gov. Palin] is suing the federal government because she says listing polar bears as a threatened species is hurting Alaskan oil and gas exploration and development …”

Palin, a mother of five, said on Monday that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant in an announcement intended to rebut rumors that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

Evidently, she neither believes in family planning, nor cares about the terrible affects of unwanted teen pregnancy on her child. And sex education was out of the question, too!

Why would she give a damn about the environment?

On the wisdom of Sen. McCain choosing Gov. Palin as his running mate thinkprogress said: “Palin is a champion for drilling, the Bush-Cheney approach to energy policy that brought us $4.00-per-gallon gasoline and the rising threat of global warming.”

“Like McCain, Palin believes that oil drilling is the only solution to our energy problems. ‘I beg to disagree with any candidate who would say we can’t drill our way out of our problem,’ she says. She supports more drilling in protected areas of the Outer Continental Shelf and the Alaska Natural Wildlife Refuge, once attacking McCain for his ‘close-mindedness on ANWR.’”

Polar What?

AS Arctic sea ice continues to shrink, currently to its second-lowest level ever, with particular melting in the Chukchi Sea,  polar bears have to swim far off the Alaskan coast in search of suitable platforms to hunt food.

Nine polar bears were seen swimming in open water over a six-hour period on August 16, government scientists said, including one more than 50 miles offshore, World Wildlife Fund officials reported.

“That represents a huge increase over previous sightings, said Margaret Williams of the fund’s Alaska office. A total of 12 polar bears were spotted in open water between 1987 and 2003, Williams said.”

To the big oil, she is, like Condoleezza Rice, a godsend. She is an angel [sic] in disguise. Ok! Palin is nowhere near as ‘smart’ as Condi, but she would reach the voters Condi couldn’t possibly reach because Palin’s white, “attractive,’ has five children and is soon to be a grandma.

Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope said: “No one is closer to the oil industry than Gov. Palin. Along with her support for drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge and off our coasts, she also opposes a windfall profit tax on the richest oil companies. Under her leadership, Alaska has sued the federal government for considering listing the Polar Bear as a threatened species even though global warming threatens its very existence.”

The impact of global warming in Alaska is one of the worst on the planet. “Alaska has experienced an average warming of 3 degrees Celsius (5.4 °F) and about 4.5 °C (8°F) in the inner regions in winter months since the 1960s, the largest regional warming of anywhere in the U.S., according to records.”

“In Alaska, 35 percent forest, global warming is causing irreversible changes including droughts, forest fires, and infestations of tree-killing insects like spruce beetles and spruce budworm moths. In the last 15 years, the spruce beetles, which thrive in warmer climates, have destroyed a total of about 3 million acres (1.21 million hectares) of spruce forest in south-central Alaska.”

“The warmer temperature means Alaska’s peat bogs, which are nearly 14,000 years old, are drying up. Ed Berg, an ecologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has discovered that shrubs and other plants have been rooting in areas of peat big normally too soggy for woody plants to grow during the last three decades.”

Palin, however, doesn’t believe in sustainability or alternative energy. She said, “alternative-energy solutions are far from imminent and would require more than 10 years [sic] to develop” [The Post and Courier Charleston, SC, 8/16/08.] Never mind the fact that the Department of Energy has clearly stated that offshore drilling “would not have a significant impact on domestic crude oil and natural gas production or prices before 2030.”

It’s All About Big Oil [and Big Money, too,] Stupid!

“When I look every day, the big oil company’s building is right out there next to me, and it’s quite a reminder that we should have mutually beneficial relationships with the oil industry.” (Roll Call, 8/25/08)

In A Letter About Sarah Palin from Anne Kilkenny, quoting Anne Kilkenny, a resident of Wasilla, Alaska, where Palin was a mayor from 1996 to 2002, Mudflats wrote: “She inherited a city with zero debt, but left it
with indebtedness of over $22 million. What did Mayor Palin encourage the voters to borrow money for? Was it the infrastructure that she said she supported? The sewage treatment plant that the city lacked? or a new library? No. $1m for a park. $15m-plus for construction of a multi-use sports complex which she rushed through to build on a piece of property that the City didn’t even have clear title to, that was still in litigation 7 yrs later–to the delight of the lawyers involved! The sports complex itself is a nice addition to the community but a huge money pit, not the profit-generator she claimed it would be. She also supported bonds for $5.5m for road projects that could have been done in 5-7 yrs without any borrowing.”

A big spender, Palin must have already entered Wall Street International Banking Syndicate’s “Top Ten Most ‘Friendly’ US Governors’ Chart.”  In June 2007,  Palin signed into law the largest operating budget in Alaska’s history, more than $6.6 billion. (Source.)

There has to be literally millions of Americans who are more knowledgeable and experienced than she.” Said Anne Kilkenny, a homemaker.

Way to Go Gov!
