Lies of My Father

Literary Liar Lion Obama Will Roar No More
The major media will not likely tackle the emerging evidence of Obama's stunning literary fraud, but the days of Obama's boasting about his writing skills are just as likely over.   Story

Last October I referenced Jack Cashill's research which made a good case for Bill Ayers being the author of Obama's  "autobiographical" steaming plile of lies,  Dreams From My Father.  It was during this time that The One was denying  ever having more than a passing relationship with Weatherman terrorist Ayeres.  Cashill's back .


Jamar's Sno-ball stand

Yes He Can
Ruh-Roh,  No he can't

It had all the makings of a Damon Runyon story. The election of a street hustler, and sometime dope dealer to the presidency was the spark.  Encouraged, and determined to become President of the United States himself, Jamar cleaned up his act and followed his own dream of owning a Sno-Ball stand.  It would be a beginning.  First one, then city-wide franchises. Wasting no time, Jamar quit, on the spot, his job as petty thief and part time pimp (when he had a girlfriend), and held a grand opening.

The wheels soon came off.  It took less than a day for Jamar to be  gob-smacked by the harsh reality that's doomed so many other Jamars in America.  Racism.  Even in south side Chicago, it worked against a young man of Color  How else to explain zero sales, even though he had no competition? That night he closed up and walked away from the dream, melting back into the mean streets of the south side.

Iraq, the unraveling (XXIV)
"...if you've been playing poker for half an hour and you don't know who the patsy at the table is, you're the patsy. "

 Despite the vaunted "lessons learned from Vietnam" when politicians decided they were great military strategists (and tacticians, if you're LBJ), nothing seems to have really changed as far as I can tell. 
What I am hearing is that [top U.S. commander Gen. Raymond] Odierno is profoundly frustrated with [Amb. Christopher] Hill, who despite knowing almost nothing about Iraq has decided after a short time there that it is time to stand back and stop influencing the behavior of Iraqi officials on a daily basis. In addition, I am told, the ambassador believes the war is an Iraqi problem, not something that really concerns Americans anymore, despite the presence of 125,000 American soldiers. On the other hand, the diplomats respond, the military guys believe they have good relationships with Iraqi officials, but, the dips add, how would the soldiers really know? Because unlike Hill's posse, they don't speak Arabic. Which brings to mind my favorite saying of Warren Buffett, that if you've been playing poker for half an hour and you don't know who the patsy at the table is, you're the patsy.  [unraveling continued]
This stinks. Once the politicians trigger a war, the generals ought be unencumbered in their mission (the only mission in war) of destroying the enemy, utterly, by any and all means.  If sniveling back-stabbing politicians engage in intrigue, kill them too, a lesson Hannibal learned only too late. Then install someone like me to govern for a generation. Anyway, if all this is your bag, skip to Taylor Marsh (Tensions
No matter what side you’re on regarding Afghanistan, Karzai and corruption are our biggest enemies right now.

Progressives from all quarters want to completely withdraw. is pushing hard on that score. Sen. Feingold wants a timetable. The overwhelming majority of readers around here wanting out altogether as well. .

Democrats try to pack the courts
Obama and the Senate are emulating FDR

A subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing Wednesday on the proposed Federal Judgeship Act of 2009 (S. 1653), which would create positions for 63 new federal judges - 51 in federal district courts and 12 in appeals courts. This proposal is nothing less than a sneaky equivalent of what President Franklin D. Roosevelt tried with his infamous court-packing power grab on the Supreme Court in 1937. The only slight difference is that this attempt is more under the radar.  [More]
   I was waiting for this, but thought it would come by splitting the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals, something the Bush Administration considered but, of course, did nothing after Democrats said Boo!  Feh, they'll prolly do that after ramming this one through, which thanks to the fraudulently elected Al Franken and the chicanery that allowed Dead Ted's successor to be appointed, they nominally have the guns to do.  But WTF, if we're going to have to rip this gummunt apart and restore the constitutional version, it means judges go with the rest.  Meant in the good, not bad, way.

Boy wants competition


 From Ben Smith this story about Montana "Progressives" pushing Sen. Max Baucus (D MT) to move the public option.  I found myself screaming at the video "Competition?Then bitch at Democrats for not allowing health insurance to be sold across state lines, you simple minded twat!?"    See if you don't yell the same thing at the same spot.
