Soros, Holder, Obama, Satan ...

Holder's Mustache                           











Unrepentant and unrelenting.

Those are the only words to describe the Obama Administration’s policy of targeting those who they view as political enemies.

The latest shoe to drop involves the Justice Department. Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal that the DOJ engaged in a coordinated effort with the far-left Soros goon squad, Media Matters, to target then-Daily Caller reporter Matt Boyle.

What was Boyle’s sin?

He was pursuing a story on whether elected officials were inclined to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for stonewalling Congress on the “investigation” into the Obama Administration’s botched Operation Fast and Furious sale of guns to Mexican drug cartels.  In a boomerang that only the most na├»ve could not have anticipated, criminals then misused those guns to murder U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Imagine that, a reporter in Washington, D.C. actually working a story and contacting congressional offices to determine their reaction to it?

Apparently to Holder and his Soros-minded cronies at Media Matters this type of activity could not be tolerated.

Sound familiar? [It should ....]


To put this in perspective, let's examine stuff that used to threaten the political careers of presidents and vice presidents.


Bobby Baker was a wheeler-dealer friend if LBJ, and appointed to Senate Secretary to the Majority Leader.  In September 1963, an investigation was begun by the Republican-led Senate Rules Committee into Baker's business and political activities. Baker was investigated for allegations of bribery using money allocated by congress and arranging sexual favors, in exchange for votes and government contracts. Criticized increasingly, Baker resigned as Secretary of the Senate on October 7, 1963. 

Although Lyndon Johnson was not involved in Baker's business dealings after 1960, the Senate investigation looked into their questionable financial activities in the 1950s. This was such a problem for Johnson that there were rumors he would be dropped from the 1964 presidential ticket.[11] After word of the assassination of John F. Kennedy reached Washington on November 22, 1963, the Senate investigation was delayed. Thereafter, any investigation of Lyndon Johnson as part of the Baker investigation was dropped. wiki

This was non-stop news on both television and in print, which is why I even remember it.  'Nuff said.  By the by, did we mention that Soros donated $500,000 to the prosecution that gained Rick Perry's bullshit. indctment?

Robert BEEEEEE Reich!

Clinton Labor Sec. Robert Reich: ‘Mostly white’ suburban county to blame for Detroit’s woes







DETROIT – In a recent Detroit Free Press op-ed, University of California-Berkeley Professor Robert Reich places the blame for the city of Detroit’s bankruptcy on the “mostly white” residents of Oakland County.

Detroit-in-ruins-15“But Detroit is really a model for how wealthier and whiter Americans escape the costs of public goods they would otherwise share with poorer and darker Americans,” Reich wrote. “ … But one thing is for certain: A very large and prosperous group close by won’t sacrifice a cent — the mostly white citizens of neighboring Oakland County.”

The reaction of one Oakland County official was that Reich, a former U.S. Secretary of Labor, didn’t know much about his chosen topic.

“That piece is clearly misinformed,” said Robert Daddow, Oakland County deputy county executive. “He doesn’t understand what he is talking about.”

By all accounts, the state and Oakland County are major stakeholders in Detroit. Here’s some things Reich overlooked about how county and state taxpayers help fund Detroit [HERE]


To give Reich his due, he was the nearest thing to someone with integrity in Willy Clinton's cabinet.  His socialist leanings, however, are so intense that idiocies like this are his stock and trade. Also, I don't mean to pick on Robert. B Reich for his diminutive  stature.  One of my greatest thrills in baseball was seeing Eddie Gaedel come to the plate. (Eddie kept his politics to himself.)

SNAILGATE

SNAILGATE: THE SLIME TRAIL LEFT BY THE ROYAL SOCIETY'S VANISHING CREDIBILITY


The story of the "extinct" giant snail - supposedly killed by global warming, but recently found alive and well on the same Indian Ocean atoll it has inhabited for the last 80,000 years - is developing into a major environmental scandal.
A scandal that obviously deserves the title Snailgate.

As we reported ten days ago under the heading Extinct Giant Snail Killed By Climate Change Crawls Back From The Dead, the sorry tale began in 2007 with the publication in one of the Royal Society's journals Biology Letters of a "peer-reviewed" study by Justin Gerlach.

Gerlach's study claimed that the Aldabra Banded Snail (Rhachistia aldabrae) had gone extinct in the late 1990s due to climate change.

However, this was immediately disputed by four experts in the field, led by Oxford University ecologist Clive Hambler who argued that there simply wasn't enough evidence to justify to claim, and urged Biology Letters to print their prepared rebuttal.
It said: "The vast majority of the habitat is virtually inaccessible and has never been visited. It is unwise to declare this species extinct after a gap in known records of ten years. We predict ‘rediscovery’ when resources permit.”

Had Biology Letters published this, it would have spared itself the embarrassment of being proved wrong this year when the snail was indeed rediscovered, alive and well, on its island home.

Instead, Biology Letters refused to publish the rebuttal on the grounds that it had failed to pass "peer-review."

Thanks to new research by Times environment correspondent Ben Webster, we now have an inkling as to how this may have happened. The two "peer-reviewers" who accepted the erroneous J Gerlach paper were the same two referees who rejected the subsequent rebuttal paper. Though their reasons for doing so are unclear, one evident possibility is that they did not wish to make themselves look foolish by accepting a paper explicitly rejecting the one they had so recently approved.

None of this would have come to light if the snail had stayed conveniently "extinct." Unfortunately for the Royal Society, Biology Letters, J Gerlach and those two "peer-reviewers", the resurrection snail has come back to haunt them by raising some very awkward questions.

We are at the point as a society where the Big Lie chasm betwixt truth and fiction is more or less unbridgeable.  What chance that people like the Gawker's Adam Weinstien, who calls for the arrest of people who don't subscribeby virtue of their common sense and examination of the factsto man caused climate change; what chance that this nerf-ball will even allow himself to be educated on the matter?  Slim to none. Rabid dog. Click-Click.
