2013 the Year of Hypocrisy and Really Big Lies

Hands down the number one lie of 2013 has to be Barack Obama’s promise that Americans can keep their healthcare plans if they like them. It was a promise made years prior to the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act, but it slid into home plate as the biggest lie of the year just in time for the New Year.

December 31, 1912

The next year sweeps around the earth like the hand of a clock, from Australia to Europe and across the great stretch of the Atlantic it rides the darkness to America. And then around and around again, each passing day marking another sweep of the hours.

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry decides making fun of Mitt Romney’s black grandson wasn’t a good idea

If you haven’t seen the video clip, feast your eyes below. Honestly I found it not so much offensive as just dumb, and fairly standard fare for MSNBC. Oh look, a black face among Republicans. Isn’t that funny? It’s what passes for humor among people who, as a certain someone might say, really need to flee the bubble in which they live. But aside from being dumb, which is hardly remarkable on this network, what was the big deal?

Duck Dynasty Doesn’t Duck & Cover

These redneck duck assassins may have the number one reality show on cable TV, but the Robertson family has proven to be completely ignorant of what elite cultural arbiters demand of backwoods celebrities when they violate trendy cultural taboos.

Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood

The story of modern-day Egypt is the chronicle of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood from its inception as a religious charity through its development as a political organization and its use of terror to progress to power. Egypt’s narrative entails the use of both the limelight and the dungeons by a Muslim Brotherhood that manipulated and was manipulated by three successive dictators and a prior King to shape political and personal gains.

Falsifiers of History

“The absolute worst – and often irreparable – damage done to the Free World has been caused by the Kremlin’s disinformation operations designed to change the past.” – Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa

The Oxford dictionary defines “disinformation” as false information that is intended to mislead, especially propaganda issued by a government organization to a rival power or the media.” The word originated in the 1950s with the Russian word, “dezinformatsiya.”

The One Line of Communication No One Can Breach

In a world where governments are gobbling the privacy of ordinary citizens, there is something owned by every human being that is completely immune to the interference of the NSA, FBI, IRS or any other earthly agency: a powerful and always available direct line of communication that cannot be tampered with and is impossible to break.

The Lame-Duck Legacy of Barack Obama!

Oh, how far and fast the mighty have fallen!

Global Warming Scientists Forced To Admit Defeat

They went in search evidence of the world’s melting ice caps, but instead a team of climate scientists have been forced to abandon their mission … because the Antarctic ice is thicker than usual at this time of year. The scientists have been stuck aboard the stricken MV Akademik Schokalskiy since Christmas Day, with repeated sea rescue attempts being abandoned as icebreaking ships failed to reach them. Now that effort has been ditched, with experts admitting the ice is just too thick. Instead the crew have built an icy helipad, with plans afoot to rescue the 74-strong team by helicopter.—Mia De Graaf and Hayley O’Keeffe, Daily Mail, 31 December 2013

Dumping irrationality as a national strategy

US Secretary of State John Kerry will arrive in Israel for his 14th visit this week. And to assure that his stay will be a happy one, Saturday night the government approved the release of 26 more Palestinian mass murderers from prison. This will please Kerry because today a core goal of US Middle East policy is to secure the release of Palestinian mass murderers from Israeli prisons.

The K-12 Lobotomy

An acquaintance sent this note: “My sister tells of teaching math to college freshmen. The question was: If X plus 5 = 10, what is the value of X? It took her an entire week to get the kids to finally say ‘5.’ So the following Monday, just on a hunch, she gave them another problem: If Y plus 5 = 10, what is the value of Y? And no one could answer!”
