“Insurrection is an art quite as much as war or any other,

SovietStory-1.jpg

“and subject to certain rulesof proceeding, which, when neglected, will produce the ruin of the party neglecting them.

Those rules, logical deductions from the nature of the parties and the circumstances one has to deal with in such a case, are so plain and simple that the short experience of 1848 had made the Germans pretty well acquainted with them. Firstly, never play with insurrection unless you are fully prepared to face the consequences of your play. Insurrection is a calculus with very indefinite magnitudes, the value of which may change every day; the forces opposed to you have all the advantage of organization, discipline and habitual authority; unless you bring strong odds against them, you are defeated and ruined. Secondly, the insurrectionary career once entered upon, act with the greatest determination, and on the offensive. The defensive is the death of every armed rising; it is lost before it measures itself with its enemies. Surprise your antagonists while their forces are scattering, prepare new successes, however small, but daily; keep up the moral ascendancy which the first successful rising has given to you; rally thus those vacillating elements to your side which always follow the strongest impulse, and which always look out for the safer side; force your enemies to a retreat before they can collect their strength against you; in the words of Danton, the greatest master of revolutionary policy yet known: de l’audace, de l’audace, encore de l’audace!” — Karl Marx / Engels — Revolution and Counter-Revolution in Germany

CAIR Rep Blames Conservative Media for Rise In “Islamophobia”…

Anything less than fawning coverage of Islam is considered “Islamophobia” by CAIR.

Via IPT:

Fox News and conservative media outlets are perpetuating an Islamophobic narrative that leads to a rise in anti-Muslim hate crimes, an attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), alleged in a recent interview with Russian Television (RT).

“There are people who are professionals whose main job is to say and do negative things about and against Muslims, these people have been now given wider stages, have been given more time on the air, on news media,” CAIR legal counsel Nadhira Al-Khalili said. “For example, Fox News, as the gentleman stated before, has now been featuring many more Islamophobes than they ever had in the past, and we believe that the media has a direct correlation to the things that are happening in real life.”

While there have been isolated attacks on Muslims by deranged individuals, law enforcement data fails to show the kind of alarming spike in attacks Al-Khalili and CAIR want people to believe is taking place.

GOP Rep. Jeff Duncan: Obama Using Executive Order On Gun Control Smacks Of “Dictatorship”…

Sure does.

Via TPM:

The gloves are officially off in the gun control fight in Washington. After Vice President Biden reiterated the White House intention to use executive power to reduce gun violence following the Newtown shooting, a Republican congressman warned on Wednesday the idea sounded like “dictatorship” to him.

It’s a handy reminder that all the gun control talk following Newtown could run into smack into the same kind of congressional opposition that’s scuttled many big legislative projects since the Republican takeover of the House in 2010. It’s also another sign that the tough rhetoric is back on guns after the Newtown lull.

“The Founding Fathers never envisioned Executive Orders being used to restrict our Constitutional rights,” Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) said in a statement Wednesday. “We live in a republic, not a dictatorship.”

The EPA is Out of Control

January 10, 2013

The EPA is a Nation-Killer

 

By Alan Caruba

To the naïve and uninformed, the Environmental Protection Agency exists to ensure clean air and water in the nation. That was its initial mandate when it was created by an executive order by President Nixon in 1970. It has since become a nation killer.
 
In 2013 a flood of regulations will cost thousands of Americans their jobs and drive more industry overseas to avoid the cost of doing business in America. It will drive up the cost of energy from electricity, along with the cost of gas and diesel fuel. It will effectively kill much of the coal mining industry in a nation that is the Saudi Arabia of coal, an energy source that formerly provided fifty percent of all electricity in America.
The EPA is girding up to kill “fracking”, a technology that has safely been in use for decades and one that holds the promise of further provision of natural gas. The provision of oil is being thwarted as well; mostly famously by Obama’s derailment of the Keystone XL pipeline in a nation laced with energy-providing pipelines. Energy, the lifeblood of the nation, will be under attack as never before.
A new EPA ozone standard will occur, one that the EPA estimates would cost $90 billion a year while other studies put the figure at nearly a trillion dollars and destroy 7.4 million jobs. The EPA’s projections are that 650 additional communities would be deemed “non-compliant” and effectively ensure plant closings and that no new manufacturing and other businesses would set up shop.
The EPA has pushed to regulate—control—every body of water in America, no matter how small. A recent court decision derailed EPA storm-water regulations that would have established a first-time standard for post-construction storm-water runoff could include mandates on cities to change existing buildings, storm-water sewer systems, and streets. It would have been the most expensive rule in EPA history.
The EPA will release regulations on the manufacture of cement—the MACT rule—that would increase the cost of manufacturing this essential element of construction by 22% to 36%. Many such plants would have to close and the U.S. would have to import cement from nations like China.
Expect regulations on cooling towers to protect fish under the Clean Water Act. A proposed coal ash rule could cost between $79 to $110 billion over the next twenty years, ending between 183,900 and 316,000 jobs over 20 years, affecting states that include Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and Missouri. The EPA has been regulating “farm dust” for decades and new rules would affect the nation’s food supplies as farmers and ranchers adjust by raising fewer livestock and the till fewer fields. Spill prevention rules would further impact farmers and ranchers.
If you were asked what is the most costly federal agency which would you suggest? Would it be the Department of Homeland Security? Department of Defense? Labor? Agriculture? Housing and Urban Development? Transportation?
In terms of the regulations it generates, the Environmental Protection Agency is the most expensive rulemaking agency. It costs $353 billion annually to comply with its regulations.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute recently published a report by Ryan Young, a Fellow in Regulatory Studies, regarding the EPA and it is further testimony to the way this predatory agency has gone from the first year of its operation in 1971, costing $701 million, to outlays in 2011 of $10.722 billion, employing 20,610 full-time workers.
The public is expected to believe that this army of environmental bureaucrats are all diligently saving Americans from particulates in the air, rain run-offs in the water, any pesticide that might actually protect them from pests, and the countless other life-threatening dangers that required, from 1999 to 2011, a total of 4,995 rules in the “Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions.”
These regulations have little to do with clean air and water and everything to do with destroying the nation’s economy, putting thousands out of work at a time when economic growth is barely occurring, and new taxes will further reduce the spending and investment power of Americans.
After having put in motion the flood of regulations that will strangle the economy, EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson, will step down after Obama’s inauguration. Her decision came after a law suit by the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Chris Horner will make known the thousands of emails Jackson sent under an alias, a practice forbidden to federal employees, presumably shedding light on policies and views she intended to be kept secret.
Reacting to the news of her forthcoming resignation, S.T. Kornick, Director of Research for The Heartland Institute, said, “Jackson played the environmental ‘bad cop’ to President Obama’s ‘good cop’, but the result of their tag-team effort has been a huge expansion of the EPA’s power. Appointing another bad cop to head the EPA could by itself push the nation into recession.”
The most powerful economy in the world is being destroyed from within by an agency that has declared war on America. It must be downsized and restrained if the nation is to survive.

Today’s College Students Can’t Write, Communicate Verbally, or Think Logically…But They “Feel Good” About It!

January 9, 2013

Study Shows College Students Are Self-Obsessed Me-Monkeys.

By

Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 10.02.33 AMThe average college student thinks he possesses above average intelligence, drive, and leadership qualities, according to a new study that shows narcissism among young people is at a 50-year high.

 

The American Freshman Survey, which is published yearly by the Higher Education Research Institution at UCLA, depicts an upward trend in the self-confidence levels of college students since 1966. Over 70 percent of freshman responded that they are more driven than their peers, while over 60 percent thought they were more intelligent and made better leaders than the average student.

But students’ views of themselves are at odds with the facts, according Dr. Jean Twenge, a psychologist and author of the book “Generation Me.”

“Our culture now emphasizes feeling good almost as much as actual success,” she wrote in an email to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

In recent years, respondents showed increasing confidence in their writing abilities. Yet objective measures show that freshmen scored better in writing in the 1960s, when their self-confidence was much lower.

According to research done by Twenge and her colleagues, the more confident students were in their writing abilities, the worse they performed on that portion of the SAT.

“When matched by year and weighted by sample size, mean self-evaluations of writing ability were actually negatively correlated with mean verbal SAT scores, meaning that students evaluated their writing ability more favorably in years when verbal SAT scores were lower.”

In building her case against excessive self-confidence among teens, Twenge points to an educational culture that is increasingly reluctant to punish failure, instead emphasizing each and every student’s “specialness.” Rampant grade inflation at high schools and universities over the past few decades has helped convince average students that their achievements are actually above average, she said.

How The LCD Came to Be – From Electronics Pioneer RCA

How RCA Lost the LCD

RCA owned the early patents but failed to commercialize the liquid crystal display

By Benjamin Gross  /  November 2012

CLOCK WORK: RCA researcher Robert Lohman poses with a prototype of an electronic clock featuring one of the company’s early dynamic scattering liquid crystal displays. Lohman later told an interviewer, “The clock lasted just long enough to take a picture.”
graphic link to timeline

In September 1967, Richard Klein and his boss, Lawrence Murray, traveled to RCA’s central research facility in Princeton, N.J. It was a familiar trip for Klein, an associate engineer at the company’s semiconductor division in nearby Somerville, whose work with light-emitting diodes kept him in close touch with solid-state researchers in Princeton. On this occasion, though, Murray assured him he was going to see something new.

Sure enough, upon arriving in Princeton, Klein and Murray were escorted to a room where electrical engineer George Heilmeier presented them with a seemingly ordinary piece of glass attached to a power supply. Then Heilmeier flipped a switch, and a familiar black-and-white image suddenly appeared on the previously transparent square. “It was a TV test pattern,” Klein recalled. “The thing pops up, and I almost fell over!”

Once Klein had recovered, Heilmeier explained that this prototype was a new form of display that relied on an obscure class of compounds called ­liquid crystals. Since the 19th century, chemists had known about these strange materials, which flowed like a liquid but retained the optical properties of a crystalline solid. But nobody was quite sure what to do with them.

Then, in 1962, RCA researcher Richard Williams hit upon the idea of using the crystals in some type of display, and he succeeded in getting the material to electronically modulate the passage of light. Fifty years ago this month, Williams filed for what would become RCA’s first patent on the new technology. Heilmeier and his colleagues then spent several years expanding on Williams’s findings. Now they wanted to work with their Somerville colleagues to transform these liquid crystal displays (LCDs) into commercial products.

Murray’s group in Somerville had done research on electro-optic phenomena, and so it was well suited to introduce liquid crystals to a division more comfortable with silicon. Klein was given the job of examining the technology from a manufacturing perspective, a task he embraced enthusiastically.

Just eight months after the Princeton demonstration, RCA vice president James Hillier trumpeted the LCD’s fine qualities at a high-profile press conference at the company’s New York City headquarters. Hillier predicted that the electrically triggered opalescence observed in Heilmeier’s prototypes would find its way into a wide range of products—perhaps even portable flat-screen televisions. “You could take such a set to the beach,” he joked, “and, in between bikini watching, see the Mets on TV figure out a new way to lose a ball game.”

The press latched on to Hillier’s far-out predictions, and for the remainder of the 1960s and into the early 1970s, it seemed like RCA, the company responsible for the commercialization of both black-and-white and color television, was again poised to revolutionize the field of electronic displays. Yet in 1976, less than a decade after the LCD’s unveiling, RCA sold off its liquid crystal operation, and key personnel associated with the project left the company. What began as an American innovation would mature under the auspices of firms in Europe and Asia.

Illustration: Emily Cooper
 
 
THE NUMBERS: In RCA’s early dynamic scattering numeric readouts, a layer of liquid crystals was placed between a conductive backplate and a front plate with seven segments made of conductive coating. The printed circuit board applied voltage to any given segment, causing dynamic scattering in that part of the cell. To render the numeral 5, it applied voltage to five segments. Click on image to enlarge.

Today, liquid crystals are one of the most widespread technologies of the information age and the foundation of a multibillion-­dollar industry. Nevertheless, RCA’s abrupt exit from the field has largely obscured the pioneering contributions of its chemists, physicists, and electrical engineers. The events and decisions that drove the company to abandon its efforts are worth revisiting for what they reveal about the unpredictable nature of innovation—and about the tendency of large corporations to fail to capitalize on it.

Today, companies in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan dominate the LCD industry. Meanwhile, the corporation that started it all has faded from memory, purchased by General Electric in 1986. Nevertheless, RCA’s technological legacy can be seen in every LCD wristwatch, calculator, laptop, and television. All of these screens trace their origins to that firm’s laboratories and factories. As much as they are portals to the digital future, liquid crystal displays are also reminders of a past filled with possibilities for the once-dominant American electronics industry. And in their story are lessons for any technology company willing to learn them.

There’s A Cold Rain Comin’…

January 9, 2013

Dear Mr. Security Agent…

From BillyBob
I’m going to try to tell this story in a manner that isn’t as convoluted as reality, but bear with me in case it starts to go sideways…
So yesterday morning I get an email from my buddy Semper Fi, 0321. It has a link to an article that I think should be required reading by everyone that considers themselves to be a Patriot. The article is pretty dang long and you can read it at the link above, but here are some of the high points for me…

Consider: The TSA was born in the panicked backwash of 9/11, which is understandable given the events of that day, when Muslim maniacs screaming allahu akbar murdered 3,000 Americans and others in the name of Islamic global jihad. But a decade after 9/11, due entirely to political correctness, it’s completely out of the question to profile Mohammed at the airport yet absolutely necessary for that bloated agency to “randomly” select your pre-teen or teenage daughter for a body search performed by a government matron in a TSA uniform. This frequently under-the-clothes and against-the-skin complete body search may done in full public view, or in a hidden back room, solely at the discretion of the TSA agents involved. 

Meanwhile, Mom and Dad stand off to the side where they have been directed to wait, saying nothing, scarcely moving, avoiding random eye contact lest a TSA security agent catch a wayward smirk or utterance of protest. To pull out a cell phone camera at this time would surely invite arrest. To walk over and grab the matron by the arm is out of the question. Defending your child from the indignity would lead only to your being Tasered and handcuffed on the cold airport floor. After that, your entire family may wind up in some TSA airport detention cells, conveniently located right on your concourse and unknown to you until then. Better to stew in silence, let the incident pass, and try to forget it.

These two paragraphs mean a lot to me. Having two teenaged daughters, I would absolutely go ballistic if one of these tsa molester thugs, make or female, put their hands on my child. How does feeling up my lily white, teen aged daughters, or my 90 year old grandmother, or my (if I had one) 5 year old, wheel chair bound son make us safer as a Nation? It doesn’t. Historically, none of the classes of people I mentioned above commit terrorist acts. Could it happen? Sure. Is it likely to happen? No. Historically acts of terror are carried out by middle eastern men typically between the ages of 18 and 40. That is the description of every one of the 9/11 scumbags. So why do the rest of us have to completely abandon our 4th Amendment right in order to get on an airplane?

And now in the wake of yet another disgusting example of the worst human depravity, this time in an elementary school in New England, we are told by the government that some firearms are simply too dangerous for citizens to possess. We are told that limiting or removing these firearms from private hands will increase the general public safety. We are told that it is a small thing to give up semi-automatic rifles, which the political and cooperating media elites will dutifully call “assault weapons,” even though nobody can quite define the term. In any case, we are told, nobody needs an “assault weapon” with a thirty-round magazine.  

Well, actually, almost nobody needs them. 

Apparently, Mr. Security Agent and his comrades need them, lots of them. Tens of thousands of new “assault weapons,” enough to shoot all of the billions (with a “b”) of .223 and .40 caliber hollow-point bullets recently purchased by our federal law enforcement agencies in unprecedented new acquisitions. Are we suddenly expecting a foreign invasion I missed reading about? Wouldn’t that be the job of the military? Why do our federal law enforcement agencies suddenly need tens of thousands of “assault weapons” and billions of new hollow-point (not training) bullets, many times more than in previous years?

What difference does it make if I “need” and “assault” rifle? I don’t recall the 2nd Amendment saying anything about wants or needs. And it also doesn’t say anything about the government giving me permission to own this or that. Look, as long as I am a law abiding citizen, what difference does it make what I own? And how is it any business of any newspaper, my next door neighbor, that thug obama or janet napolitano? it’s not. It’s my business and I intend to keep it that way.
As far as the department of homeland security buying over 1 BILLION rounds of hollow point ammunition, from what I remember it is against the Geneva convention to use that shit in a war, so you figure it out. The federal government is planning on an uprising of some sort and that ammo will be used on us.

So at the historical moment that our nation is turning into a police state, with no expectation of privacy, even of our private parts in public airports or on public highways, we are commanded to grant even greater trust in our government’s perpetual future benevolence, to have blind faith that at no point in the future will our government turn tyrannical. 

But in the year 2013, has the government already earned our trust, or our disgust, with its current abuses of its police powers? In this environment of steadily creeping tyranny, should we comply with government demands for our increasing disarmament?

In short, the answer to the question above is… NO. How has the government earned our trust? They lie when it would be easier to tell the truth. They promise transparency and then conduct all their meetings in secret. They use the resources our tax dollars provide to do things like allow GUNS TO MAKE THEIR WAY ILLEGALLY INTO OTHER COUNTRIES, in the name of stricter gun laws in this Country. That makes good sense doesn’t it? They cover up, they violate the Constitution, and they are just crooked scumbags all the way around. No, there is no reason for trust.
So anyway, the article goes on from there to talk about times in history when populations have been convinced that gun registration is a good idea. Germany in the 1920′s, for example. Hitler later used those registries for confiscation and then for annihilation. Funny how that works. it seems to be a pattern of behavior in dictators. But, that could never happen here. That’s exactly what the people of Germany said…
After reading this, I asked a friend, who retired from 35 years in law enforcement a few years ago, if he were still on the job, and he were tasked with  rounding up guns, would he do it. His answer was yes.
Holy crap. I never would have expected that. Never. 
I asked him if he realized that rounding up people’s guns would be a violation of the oath he swore to protect the Constitution. He said not if it were a law. I asked him if he realized that a law that violates the Constitution is unlawful. He said that would be for the courts to figure out.
I asked him if it was something that he was willing to give his life to do. He didn’t get it.
I told him that not everyone that owns guns is a mall ninja type person. I reminded him that there are a lot of former Marines, Navy SEAL’s and Army Special Forces people that he would never even see before they put a bullet in his head. I don’t know that he had ever even considered that.
I figured that was enough of that for one day.
This morning I sent him this same article and asked him to read it. Later I asked him if he did. He told me he couldn’t. He started and it pissed him off. 
He said he feels like it is attacking law enforcement folks. Maybe it is, to a certain degree. But these people have to understand what is at stake if they decide to accept a lawful order and try to confiscate weapons. How many cops  are the people is charge willing to lose in this thing?
You know, I hope this is all just a stupid exercise in futility and we will let cooler heads figure this thing out in a year or so. Trying to make a decision about something as complex as our 2nd Amendment rights so soon after a tragedy isn’t wise. I can understand why obama and the gun grabbers are in such a hurry. The wounds are still fresh and it’s easy to lash out, even if you strike out at the wrong person. But, like so many other things these liberals do, they don’t think about the consequences of their actions. Registration and/or confiscation isn’t going to work like they envision it. It will get ugly. Real ugly. Real quick. Are they ready for that? Maybe they are. If you consider obama has armed almost every federal agency there is and they have purchased MILIONS AND MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of rounds of ammunition, maybe they are ready. Maybe they have thought it through and maybe they are ready for the next civil war.
It’s about to get real interesting around here. I would say what I always say, stock up on ammo, but that shit is all sold out…

How Things Have Changed Since 1910

January 9, 2013
1910: Car and Nation

1910ford.jpg
This car was assembled on November 11th of 1910. Normally, 1909/1910 style bodies were wooden, but this 1910 style body is partially steel, the only one known; presumably a transition to the use of all steel bodies in 1911. It was originally delivered to R.E. Lawrence in Astoria, IL. Vernon Jarvis of Decatur, IL, purchased the car in 1951 and later displayed it in his Early American Museum at Silver Springs, FL, until in 1967, when the current owner bought it. After 30 years in storage, restoration was completed in March, 2007.

The year is 1910, over one hundred years ago.

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower!

The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour.

The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year.

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME.

Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!

Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as ‘substandard.’

Sugar cost four cents a pound.

Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

The five leading causes of death were:
1. Pneumonia and influenza
2, Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart disease
5. Stroke

The American flag had 45 stars.

The population of Las Vegas Nevada was only 30!

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn’t been invented yet.

There was no Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn’t read or write and only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A.!

I am now going to forward this to someone else without typing it myself.

From there, it will be sent to others all over the WORLD… all in a matter of seconds!

It’s An Obama World… Georgia Power Company Closes 15 Plants Thanks To Latest EPA Regulations – Gateway Pundit

The Milledgeville area plant closing will cost more than 200 jobs. (The Telegraph)

A Georgia utilities company is closing 15 coal, oil and gas plants thanks to the latest Obama EPA regulations.

Reuters reported, via The Examiner:

Georgia Power said on Monday it plans to seek approval from Georgia regulators to retire 15 coal-, oil- and natural gas-fired power plants in the state totaling 2,061 megawatts (MW) due primarily to the high cost of meeting stricter federal environmental regulations.

Over the past few years, U.S. generating companies have announced plans to shut about 40,000 MW of older coal-fired power plants as low natural gas prices have made it uneconomic for the generators to spend millions to upgrade the plants’ emissions systems to meet the latest federal and state environmental rules.

In a press release, Georgia Power, the biggest unit of U.S. power company Southern Co, said it wanted to shut units 3 and 4 at Plant Branch in Putnam County; units 1-5 at Plant Yates in Coweta County; units 1 and 2 at Plant McManus in Glynn County; units 1-4 at Plant Kraft in Chatham County; and units 2 and 3 at Boulevard in Chatham County.

The company said it plans to file its updated Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) with Georgia’s utility regulators on Jan. 31.

Units 3-4 at Branch, units 1-5 at Yates and units 1-3 at Kraft are coal-fired units. Kraft Unit 4 and Boulevard 2 and 3 are fired by natural gas and oil. McManus units 1-2 are oil-fired.

The company said it expects to ask to retire the units, other than Kraft 1-4, by the April 16, 2015, effective date of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxics (MATS) rule.

Why Hasn’t Traitor Bradley Manning Already Been Shot?

Bradley Manning Hasn’t Been Shot Yet

Posted on | January 8, 2013

There was a time when a traitor in the ranks of the U.S. Army would have been in front of a firing squad within 48 hours of his apprehension.

I happened to be at Fort Meade today on other business, which included a lecture about concerns for “operational security.” When it was time to get lunch, I was advised not to leave the base, but rather to eat at the on-base Burger King, as there might be hassles getting back through the main gate because of the Bradley Manning trial:

The US soldier accused of being behind the massive WikiLeaks publication of state secrets has been awarded a 112-day reduction in any eventual sentence on the grounds that he was subjected to excessively harsh treatment in military detention.

(If that worm were locked up in Leavenworth for life, that would be excecessively mild treatment, as far as I’m concerned.)

Colonel Denise Lind, the judge presiding over Bradley Manning’s court martial, granted him the dispensation as a form of recompense for the unduly long period in which he was held on suicide watch and prevention of injury status while at the brig at Quantico marine base in Virginia where he was detained from 29 July 2010 to 20 April 2011.

(Why ”suicide watch”? Spare us the expense of hanging him.)

During that time he was held under constant surveillance, had his possessions removed from his cell and at times even his clothes, often in contravention to the professional medical [advice] of psychiatrists.

(If the Army had sought the advice of any competent psychiatrist, Bradley Manning never would have been in the Army in the first place.)

Lind’s ruling was made under Article 13 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice that protects prisoners awaiting trial from punishment on grounds that they are innocent until proven guilty. The recognition that some degree of pre-trial punishment did occur during the nine months that the soldier was held in Quantico marks a legal victory for the defence in that it supports Manning’s long-held complaint that he was singled out by the US government for excessively harsh treatment.

How the hell can the Army enforce discipline when a traitor like Bradley Manning is permitted to bring in a commie lawyer to claim that his “rights” were violated by “excessively harsh treatment”? And speaking of commie lawyers:

David Coombs, Manning’s civilian lawyer, revealed at a hearing at Fort Meade military base in Maryland what is likely to be a central pillar of the defence case at the soldier’s court martial. A full trial is scheduled to start on 6 March.
Coombs said that the defence would be calling as a witness Adrian Lamo, the hacker who alerted military authorities to Manning’s WikiLeaks activities, to give evidence about the web chat he had with Manning shortly before the soldier’s arrest in Iraq in March 2010. The content of the web chat, Coombs suggested, would be used by the defence to show that Manning selected information to leak that “could not be used to harm the US or advantage any foreign nation”.

Yeah. Let’s just take the word of a traitor who disobeyed orders, because someone who violates his oath of service can be trusted to tell the truth.

UPDATE: In case you didn’t know:

Coombs is best known for defending Army Sgt. Hasan Akbar, who was convicted and sentenced to death for a deadly 2003 attack on fellow U.S. military members in Kuwait.

Some people will probably protest: “How can you call him a ‘commie’? Coombs is a retired officer!” And your point would be?

I mean, John Kerry used to be an officer, didn’t he?

If Hagel is a Friend of Obama – Then He is An Enemy of The United States and Israel

Outrageous Hagel Nomination Finds Backing

Apparently Cindy Sheehan wasn’t available, so Obama went with her ideological twin, Chuck Hagel, for his bid to spit the ultimate insult at the Department of Defense. Surprisingly, someone has been found who actually approves of this disgusting nomination. Not so surprisingly, that someone is America’s worst external enemy, Iran:

Iran’s Foreign Ministry appears to be backing President Barack Obama’s pick of former Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., as secretary of defense.

Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in an interview Tuesday that he hopes the Hagel nomination will improve relations between the United States and Tehran.

That it will, as the two governments move closer to an open alliance against both Israel and the American people.

Hagel has previously criticized discussion of a military strike by either the U.S. or Israel against Iran and spoken of the influence of the “Jewish lobby” on Congress. He also has backed efforts to bring Iran to the table for talks on future peace in Afghanistan.

After all the blood and treasure we expended, Democrats left Iraq to fall under Iranian domination. The same is evidently planned for Afghanistan.

Technically, Hagel was a Republican during his lamentable stint in the Senate. To call him a RINO would be an insult to relatively reasonable liberal Republicans like Lindsey Graham, who gasps that Hagel would be “the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards the state of Israel in our nation’s history.”

By now we know that this arrogant insult to the Armed Forces, to America, to victims of Iranian-backed terrorism, and to our allies will not cost Obama a scintilla of support from his base — not even among Jews.

If only the Senate could be trusted to chuck Hagel rather than confirm him.

The Wise Words of Churchill – It is Being Played Out Again By Those Who Will Render The USA Defense-less

January 8, 2013

THE MUNICH AGREEMENT – 1938

Excerpt of the speech given by Churchill in response to this agreement with Germany

Barrack Hussein Obama is willfully and purposely neglecting and dismantling the defense and protection of the United States of America and retreating from our enemies that he was sworn to defend this country from – the same way that politicians did in England prior to World War II and now the United States is being reduced to such a state of weakness that we may never recover. Obama is a lying tyrant and hell bent on the destruction of the United States of America. May God have mercy on us and raise up another Churchill to wake the people of this great country out of their, as Churchill put it, “Chloroformed acquiescence” and stupor administered by a state run press that Obama and his communist cronies control.  It may already be too late. ZTW

…It is the most grievous consequence of what we have done and of what we have left undone in the last five years – five years of futile good intentions, five years of eager search for the line of least resistance, five years of uninterrupted retreat of British power, five years of neglect of our air defences.

Those are the features which I stand here to expose and which marked an improvident stewardship for which Great Britain and France have dearly to pay. We have been reduced in those five years from a position of security so overwhelming and so unchallengeable that we never cared to think about it. We have been reduced from a position where the very word “war” was considered one which could be used only by persons qualifying for a lunatic asylum. We have been reduced from a position of safety and power – power to do good, power to be generous to a beaten foe, power to make terms with Germany, power to give her proper redress for her grievances, power to stop her arming if we chose, power to take any step in strength or mercy or justice which we thought right – reduced in five years from a position safe and unchallenged to where we stand now.

… They should know that there has been gross neglect and deficiency in our defences; they should know that we have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road; they should know that we have passed an awful milestone in our history, when the whole equilibrium of Europe has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies:

“Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting.”

And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.

We do not want to be led upon the high road to becoming a satellite of the German Nazi system of European domination. In a very few years, perhaps in a very few months, we shall be confronted with demands with which we shall no doubt be invited to comply. Those demands may affect the surrender of territory or the surrender of liberty. I foresee and foretell that the policy of submission will carry with it restrictions upon the freedom of speech and debate in Parliament, on public platforms, and discussions in the Press, for it will be said – indeed, I hear it said sometimes now – that we cannot allow the Nazi system of dictatorship to be criticised by ordinary, common English politicians. Then, with a Press under control, in part direct but more potently indirect, with every organ of public opinion doped and chloroformed into acquiescence, we shall be conducted along further stages of our journey.
