The New York Times's Amnesty Lies

The Times are merely parroting the Admin's latest talking point - we've had six years of these water carriers doing precisely that - Obama feeds the "news" media with the latest strategy or issue, then the "news" media runs a bunch of stories that create the issue, then the admin acts on their self-created issue - they must really think we're stupid. The latest is since the Congress "failed to act", he can act in spite of the Congress. Never mind Senate obstructionism, the Congress failing to do something he wants to do has never been an excuse for the President to act unilaterally. If the Congress failed to pass a bill that suspends the Constitution and declares martial law, that's hardly a mandate for the President to do it himself. You want "change", Mr. President? How about enforcing the laws of the land that already exist? Now *that* would be something new ...
Here's what I don't understand - we have many showing their outrage, disgust, and hatred for Israel for what's happened in the Gaza strip, calling it "genocide", and may, irrationally, comparing Israel to Nazi Germany (stupifyingly, some even claiming Israel is worse than the Nazi's and the holocaust.) Yet they remain absolutely dumb-struck silent over an *actual* genocide taking place in Iraq, particularly, and state-sanctioned pogroms in many other muslim countries against non-muslims, especially Christians. Why the huge disparity - rage against Israel, but silence about Boko Haram, ISIL, Islamic Jihad, etc, etc? And why are so media outlets similarly silent about it? I know everyone wants to bend over backwards to be accepting of Islam, and say how it's a religion of peace, and how most muslims want to live and let live, and so on. But there is a huge and ever-growing segment of islam that's committed to genocide - not just in words, but in deeds, and are carrying it out in front of our very eyes. And *still* we say nothing ... Islam is at war with the non-Islamic world - how much longer will we pretend they aren't?
OK, I can't stand it anymore -- it's b-o-r-d-e-r not b-o-a-r-d-e-r.
This "plan" as described by Root sounds like the ravings of a conspiracy-theory nut-job ... And yet is, as an explanation, the one most consistent with the facts. I've asked myself repeatedly for an explanation of this President's actions (and lack thereof) wrt this fiasco - could he *really* be this incompetent? No, there's no way. So, then he must be doing it deliberately, which begs the question "why?". What could motivate him to import such staggering numbers of uneducated 3rd world poverty cases? What rational reason would be be importing millions of future permanent dependents who'll be a massive economic and sociological drag on our society? Why the large-scale importation of poverty? What could possibly be the motive? Root's proposition makes as much sense as any ...

Video of MH17 Hit by Missile

Oh, and by the way, when an SA-11 ("Buk") turns on its tracking radar, it's immediately identifiable - radar is like turning on a flashlight on a dark night - you can detect and classify its radiation from much further away. The engagement radar is different from surveillance radar - it was reported that there was detection of the Buk engagement radar (probably NATO designation: Fire Dome) turning on at the same time contact with the plane was lost. If this intel is correct - that a SA-11 engagement radar lit up at the same time the plane was lost, well, do the freakin math.

Video of MH17 Hit by Missile

Well, just a *few* issues with this video: - the date of the video was June 6th - over a month *before* MH 17 was shotdown - The title of the video was "AH 30" - that is, Antonov 30 - an AN 30 was shot down on, you guessed it, June 6th - The plane appeared to be a turboprop - so's an AN 30 - The debris field of MH 17 suggested a catastrophic breakup at altitude - in the video, the plane's fuselage was intact - The livery is wrong - the plane had a dark blue belly; MH has a light-gray belly. - Clear skies - the day of the MH 17 shoot down, it was overcast and cloudy Other than that, real compelling (SMH) ... Here's what kills me - the author gets all skeptical about the "official" story in his 6 "Main Questions" - but can't exercise the 10 seconds of critical thinking it would take to recognize this video isn't MH 17, and in fact, it says precisely what it is - an AN30 shootdown. Gah! Do you see how frustrating this is, to deal with conspiracy nuts who doubt everything, who have alternative (and dark) explanations for every event, but fail to recognize the truth even when it slaps them, hard, in the face???
The big difference between Katrina and the probably more damaging and costly flood of illegal aliens is Bush didn't cause Katrina ...
On the bright side (and I'm serious), at least this would be a law, not some extra-legal "policy" implemented by HHS. Of course, they do not expect this to pass - they just want to get some Republicans to vote against it, so they can flog the "War on Women" trope in the upcoming elections.
Willfully ignorant - if she doesn't know how many types of contraception Hobby Lobby would pay for, she's not even qualified to offer an opinion on the ruling. But of course, she knows - but such nuance would disarm the overall trope they're trying to sell, the "War On Women" ... Such vulgar, ugly people who so routinely and blatantly lie in the name of their "Greater Good" - the ends always justify the means for these people. I do wish the American people bothered to learn the facts for themselves, instead of being led around by the nose by these various propaganda groups, but having re-elected the most incompetent President since Jimmy Carter based on such blatant tactics, I have little hope for us ...
It's not even *in* the capitol - they play in Maryland, and are based and practice in Virginia. Don't forget how the "Bullets" became the "Wizards" - playing in the heart of the then-murder capitol of the world, "Bullets" was seen as inappropriate somehow. And let's not forget the College of William and Mary - their sports teams are called the "Tribe", the NCAA threatened sanctions because they had a feather in one of their logos. If they had their way, we'd erase every bit of American Indian culture from our society. I suppose we could start by renaming the Potomac river to its original meaning - "a place to where tribute is brought" - how appropriate ...
