The Insiders: Democratic phonies are on the run – Washington Post

What’s with all the Democratic Senate candidates being caught displaying a condescending, insulting contempt for voters?

Because that’s who they are.   We’ve reached a point where the State exists only for its own benefit.

State Department approved 215 Bill Clinton speeches, controversial consulting deal, worth $48m; Hillary Clinton’s COS copied on all decisions – Washington Examiner

Some of the speeches were delivered in global hotspots and were paid for by entities with business or policy interests in the U.S.

The documents also show that in June 2011, the State Department approved a consulting agreement between Bill Clinton and a controversial Clinton Foundation adviser, Doug Band.

The consultancy with Band’s Teneo Strategy ended eight months later following an uproar over Teneo’s ties to the failed investment firm MF Global.

State Department legal advisers, serving as “designated agency ethics officials,” approved Bill Clinton’s speeches in China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Panama, Turkey, Taiwan, India, the Cayman Islands and other countries.

The memos approving Mr. Clinton’s speeches were routinely copied to Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s senior counsel and chief of staff.

That’s called bribery in the “normal” world.

Remember: Mitt Romney was a bad guy for making millions in business but Hillary Clinton is a good guy for making millions selling access.

 

Very sad news…

Archaeologist Prof. Klaus Schmidt dies – DIHA

Prof. Dr. Klaus Schmidt, who excavated the Göbeklitepe site near the city of Urfa, considered the oldest temple in the world, has died in Germany of a heart attack aged 61.

Prof. Dr. Schmidt, from the German Institute of Archaeology, was in Germany on holiday when he died. Due to the excessive heat in the Urfa area excavations are not carried out in the summer months. Dr. Schmidt began excavations at Göbeklitepe 20 years ago, and proved that the site dated from the Neolithic era and was the oldest temple yet discovered. Books have been published regarding the site in several languages. He exhibited artefacts from the site and spoke at conferences all over the world. 

Dr. Schmidt had dedicated the final 20 years of his life meticulously uncovering Gobekli Tepe.  He has been praised by numerous researchers due to his disciplined and meticulous methods, particularly his detailed notes on soil depth carbon dating around the site.

If you’re not familiar with Gobekli Tepe, I’d highly recommend you spend an evening researching and reading.  Traditional archeology isn’t saying much about it because the discovery of the site has forced the history books on human development to be re-written.

All this talk of impeachment…

Is a sly plan that serves two purposes.

One, it riles up all the leftist idiots that have no idea what’s actually going on into giving money to fight against those unreasonable and evil Republicans.

Two, the most insidious reason of all, is to soften up the public.  The White House talks about impeachment then let’s it cool for a bit, then does something radically unconstitutional and when the (deserving) cries of impeachment come, they can look to their moronic base and say “See, we told you these idiots were going to say that but because we warned you, that somehow means they’re wrong.”

I wonder…

if one morning John Kerry woke up and suddenly said to himself  “Hey, let’s see if we can make support for civilization over terror a partisan issue!”

Then I imagine him dialing everyone he knows in the White House.

And then the leftist lemmings follow.

Am I close?

A warning/prediction:  Ebola is going to make it’s way to the United States before the end of the year.

The new strain of ebola seems to incubate longer and we have a wide open border to the south.  It’s an awfully good bet that it’s going to happen.  I hope I’m wrong.

One thing I am positive of is that it won’t be Obama’s fault.

Average Price of Electricity Climbs to All-Time Record – CNS News

For the first time ever, the average price for a kilowatthour (KWH) of electricity in the United States has broken through the 14-cent mark, climbing to a record 14.3 cents in June, according to data released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Hope and Change.

It’s one thing to close coal plants, it’s something else entirely when you’re closing them and there’s no replacement technology.

Obama failed to stop the Islamic State when he had the chance – Washington Post

“Obama was not taken by surprise by the Islamic State offensive, as administration officials have repeatedly claimed. He had been warned by Iraqi officials, and even by officials in his administration. U.S. intelligence had identified the camps. Obama had not only been given a green light from the Iraqis to strike, but they also were pleading with him to do so. Obama simply refused to act.”

It wasn’t a priority to Obama because it wasn’t a priority to his bosses.

Were you one of the idiots that said “So What?” when it leaked that the NSA collects all of your metadata?  Perhaps this will change your mind:

Ex-NSA Chief: ‘We Kill People Based on Metadata’ – ABC News

The U.S. government “kill[s] people based on metadata,” but it doesn’t do that with the trove of information collected on American communications, according to former head of the National Security Agency Gen. Michael Hayden.

 

Hayden made the remark after saying he agreed with the idea that metadata – the information collected by the NSA about phone calls and other communications that does not include content – can tell the government “everything” about anyone it’s targeting for surveillance, often making the actual content of the communication unnecessary.

“[That] description… is absolutely correct. We kill people based on metadata. But that’s not what we do with this metadata,” said Hayden, apparently referring to domestic metadata collection. “It’s really important to understand the program in its entirety. Not the potentiality of the program, but how the program is actually conducted.”

Translation:  Don’t worry about how much room there is for abuse, just trust us.
