Dieter Dengler

Rescue Dawn
How did I miss this? By boycotting the cinema, that's how.  Rescue Dawn is the true story of Navy Lt. Dieter Dengler's (Christian Bale) capture, and escape from the Pathet Lao after being shot down over Laos.   As intense as this film was (7 stars out of five), it was a much needed holiday from our real life prick Obamunists.

Bonus: Director Werner Herzog shot a documentary (Little Dieter Needs To Fly)  in 1997 using the real Dieter Dengler.  You can watch the whole thing here, in full YouTube Cinerama.

SS Dumps on Carter

Dumping on Teh Jummy

I takes my validations where I finds 'em, and discovering that Jummy's Secret Service detachment hated him is sweet. A new book dumps on Teh Jummah while he's still alive to enjoy it.  Here's some excerpts, courtesy  NewsMax,  from  "In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect," by Ron Kessler.
  • Carter treated with contempt the little people who helped and protected him," and told agents not to look at him or speak to him — even to say hello — when he went to the Oval Office, Kessler disclosed. "For three and a half years, agent John Piasecky was on Carter's detail — including seven months of driving him in the presidential limousine — and Carter never spoke to him, he says.
  •  refused to allow a military aide with the nuclear football to stay in a trailer on his property in Plains. The aide had to stay in Americus, a 15-minute drive from Carter's home, a top military official confirmed to Kessler. "...  Carter could not have launched a counterattack by calling the aide in Americus," Kessler writes. "By the time the military aide drove to Carter's home, the United States would have been within five minutes of being wiped out by nuclear-tipped missiles."
  • Early in his presidency, Carter proclaimed that the White House would be "dry," and only wine, but no liquor, would be served at state dinners.The word was passed to get rid of all the booze on Air Force One, at Camp David, and in the White House. But on the first Sunday the Carters were in the White House, they ordered up Bloody Marys before going to church.
  • On one occasion, disgruntled agents deliberately left Carter's luggage in the trunk of his car at an airport, and Carter "was without clothes for two days."

Malkin-Hannity Health Care


(icon appropriated under my war powers act from SK)

This Hannity seg with Michelle Malkin is a terrific package of goodies about the Obama/Media complex and healthcare.  One of the items not mentioned was Obama's Tuesday claim in New Hampshire that AARP was on board with Obamacare.  Not.  Moonbattery had the story in April about the nearly bankrupt New York Times making millions from the sale of Obama merchandise.
