Recall Hillary Clinton remark : ‘Bush looks like he has something to hide’

Here is a good one put together by Daily Caller. Our gal Hillary was worried about Bush and his documents. She makes Nixon look like a Saint. After all, Nixon never destroyed all the tapes he had created and in the end, instead, went down with the ship. Here we go:

In 2003, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton complained about the Bush administration’s lack of transparency and cautioned that its refusal to turn over documents related to 9/11 raised suspicion that it had something to hide.

But the same can be said — indeed, has been said — about Clinton’s shady handling of the private email account and private server she used as secretary of state.

Clinton’s records and emails were subpoenaed by a House committee nine days after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack at Benghazi. The State Department made some Clinton records available, but not her emails. By maintaining a private account, Clinton also avoided making her emails available to public records requests.

That level of secrecy is ironic given Clinton’s comments about the Bush administration at an Oct. 29, 2003, conference at the New American Strategies Conference.

“In taking their action to evade or avoid providing information, the administration unnecessarily raises the suspicion that it has something to hide, that it might use the claim of national security to hide mistakes that are literally questions of life and death for Americans,” Clinton said.

She was criticizing the Bush administration for dragging its feet in turning over documents to the 9/11 Commission, led by former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean.

Robert Reich says not to worry about ISIS

Hey Bob, it only takes one to kill you and your family. Do the math. This is a hoot on Comedy Central. Where the idiots get their news. Clip over at Newsbusters.

Via Newsbusters:

While on Thursday’s edition of The Nightly Show on Comedy Central, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich expressed concern that the media has been covering the terrorist group ISIS too heavily and in turn has been causing the group’s ranks to swell.  After being asked by host Larry Wilmore to explain why “all these westerners [are] joining ISIS,” Reich dismissed that premise by declaring that “there are not that many trying to join ISIS” considering: “Out of 600 million Europeans and Americans you’ve got, what, 400, 800 trying to join ISIS? This is not a big deal.”

Pilot Andreas Lubitz was a Muslim Convert says German website

Just the beginning of the news that no one wants to hear. What more is there to say?

A German news website claims Andreas Lubitz was a Muslim convert.
Speisa.com reported:

According to Michael Mannheimer, a writer for German PI-News, Germany now has its own 9/11, thanks to the convert to Islam, Andreas Lubitz.

Translation from German:

All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder. As a radical mosque in Bremen is in the center of the investigation, in which the convert was staying often, it can be assumed that he – as Mohammed Atta, in the attack against New York – received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque.

Converts are the most important weapon of Islam. Because their resume do not suggests that they often are particularly violent Muslims. Thus Germany now has its own 9/11, but in a reduced form. And so it is clear that Islam is a terrorist organization that are in accordance with §129a of the Criminal Code to prohibit it and to investigate its followers. But nothing will happen. One can bet that the apologists (media, politics, “Islamic Scholars”) will agree to assign this an act of a “mentally unstable” man, and you can bet that now, once again the mantra of how supposedly peaceful Islam is will continue. And worse still, the attacks by the left against those who have always warned against Islam, will be angrier and merciless.

For now the German Islam supporters like never before have their backs against the wall.

Michael Mannheimer, 26.3.2015

Apparently from the comments at German PI – Andreas Lubitz was Muslim convert from his Facebook page.

Obama refuses to meet with NATO head

One can only wonder at the absurd behavior of Obama. Why in the world would he not meet with these folks? NATO, the last stand when the Russian bear rises again, and he is rising. One gets the feeling is that he really doesn’t want to be bothered. Is it just that simple? Or has he lost his wheels. Here we go:

It is hard for me to believe that the president of the United States has not found the time to meet with the current secretary general of NATO given the magnitude of what this implies, and the responsibilities of his office,” Volker said. President Barack Obama has yet to meet with the new head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and won’t see Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg this week, even though he is in Washington for three days.  Stoltenberg’s office requested a meeting with Obama well in advance of the visit, but never heard anything from the White House, two sources close to the NATO chief told me.

The leaders of almost all the other 28 NATO member countries have made time for Stoltenberg since he took over the world’s largest military alliance in October. Stoltenberg, twice the prime minister of Norway, met Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa to discuss the threat of the Islamic State and the crisis in Ukraine, two issues near the top of Obama’s agenda.

Kurt Volker, who served as the U.S. permanent representative to NATO under both President George W. Bush and Obama, said the president broke a long tradition.  “The Bush administration held a firm line that if the NATO secretary general came to town, he would be seen by the president … so as not to diminish his stature or authority,” he told me.

America’s commitment to defend its NATO allies is its biggest treaty obligation, said Volker, adding that European security is at its most perilous moment since the Cold War. Russia has moved troops and weapons into eastern Ukraine, annexed Crimea, placed nuclear-capable missiles in striking distance of NATO allies, flown strategic-bomber mock runs in the North Atlantic, practiced attack approaches on the U.K. and Sweden, and this week threatened to aim nuclear missiles at Denmark’s warships.

Bowe Bergdahl deserted, pervert father stalks twins

No one is covering this little factor, so I will re-post an earlier story.

So we hear that Bowe Bergdahl will be charged with desertion. The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree. While Obama pranced about praising the poor suffering family, the press never reported that the father was a pervert. No, we had to believe that the embracement of this deserter was more important than those who may have died or risked their lives trying to retrieve this rascal. So lets take a look at Dad. First:

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by the Taliban last year in exchange for five prisoners, is being charged with desertion, retired Lt. Col. Tony Schaffer told Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday.Read more: Washington Times

One weird family, this Bergdahl family.  A little reported story regarding dear old dad Bob Bergdahl, father of Bowe Bergdahl.  The original police reports are out there for confirmation. About Pops.

article-0-1E60FB9300000578-898_634x697

The father of embattled POW Bowe Bergdahl, who landed on US soil,, waged a sinister campaign of stalking and harassment against pretty twin sisters – even stealing a gnome from their garden and peaking at them in the shower, the sisters claim in shocking police reports.

Lacey and Allie Hillman, 31-year-old twin sisters from Hailey, Idaho, went to police after a series of harassing incidents involving Robert (Bob) Bergdahl in 2011
They claim that Bergdahl, a UPS driver, drove by their home ‘several times a day’ even though he had nothing to pick up or deliver and left ‘creepy’ notes
Allie claims that he once banged on her door and accused her of cheating on him, saying ‘What are you two-timing me b****,’ even though they never dated or were even friends

The sisters claim Bergdahl took a small gnome from their garden and later approached Lacey to ask her if ‘something was missing’ from their yard
She later notice that the gnome was indeed gone, only to have it reappear days later

Krauthammer takes on fake outrage of Israel spying

For me but not for thee as Obama drones on with his anti Bibi rhetoric. Krauthhammer takes on the issue in his usual good style. Obama spies on Merkel, the Senate Intelligence Committee and probably everyone in between. Here we go:

The left has been all up in a tizzy because of a White House leak to the Wall Street Journal accusing the Israeli government of spying on Americans in order to undermine Obama’s Iran deal by supplying secret info to Congress.

We supposedly found out about Israeli spying when we were spying on them. So, it’s OK when we do it but not when the Jews do it? Obama is just manifesting his intense personal dislike for Israel.

Obama: ‘By hook or by crook I will expand the government’

No surprise really, but still Obama keeps pushing the envelope for the tolerance level of the American people. Apparently, there is no bounds. It’s almost that he delights in pulling our chain. Why else keep harping on his damnable phone and pen. Here we go:

Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama says he’s going to push the limits on presidential power as far as he can go during the last two years of his tenure.

“Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said in a friendly interview with The Huffington Post.

“By hook or by crook,” he added.

Obama said his big-government push would “make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”

CIA Brennan ‘ISIS is on the run’ and other stupid things he has said

The latest news from John Brennan is that ISIS is on the run, sit back and relax. But before we get to that piece of good news just out, let’s take a look at this rascal and what he is all about. Another desert loving Middle-Eastern educated infiltrators.

Just think about it. That’s all. From part of an earlier post:

Obama’s CIA Chief Brennan Behind Journalist’s Murder?

Did John Brennan call for Michael Hastings to be tried under the Espionage Act, and did that prove to be too inconvenient for the head spook? Sources close to Hastings state not only that Hastings was investigating Brennan and his rogue CIA agency, but the NSA as well.According to a hacked email from Defense contractor Stratfor that was reported on by San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak, it was former counter terrorism czar and now CIA chief John Brennan—and not Eric Holder’s Department of Justice—who was behind the recently revealed media witch hunt. Per the email, written by none other than Fred Burton, the president of the huge military contractor Stratfor, “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists…”

Brennan, then as now in charge of Obama’s drone assassination program, has targeted American citizens on foreign soil, specifically the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son,Abdulrahman, in Yemen, along with five other Yemeni teenagers.

Now back to the latest via Washington Examiner

CIA director John Brennan on Sunday gave an optimistic assessment of U.S. efforts against the Islamic State, saying that the terrorist group’s expansion has been “blunted.”

“Clearly, ISIS momentum inside of Iraq and Syria has been blunted, and it has been stopped,” Brennan said in an interview with Fox News, using another name by which the Islamic State is known.

“They are not on the march as they were several months ago,” he said. “And so, our working with the Iraqis and the Iraqis now trying to push back against it, it is having some great, I think, progress.”

The U.S. has been engaged in a campaign against the Islamic State using air power and training regional forces to engage Islamic State militants.

Groups affiliated with the Islamic State, however, have branched into North Africa in recent months, and took responsibility for terrorist attacks this week in Yemen and Tunisia.

Brennan acknowledged those gains by the Islamic State, saying that the U.S. “cannot relent” in working with regional partners against the terrorists.

But he defended his past comments in 2012 that the U.S. had Al-Qaida on the run, saying that the Islamic State is a new and separate phenomenon.

“There was no sense that I think either I or the president or others gave to the American people that terrorism was going away,” Brennan said. “But we’ve made great progress against a lot of these groups that had plans in place to carry out attacks.”Keep reading

Just for the record: John Brennan and other stupid things he said

“I did spend time with classmates at the American University in Cairo in the 1970’s. And, time spent with classmates from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine from around the world who taught me thatwhatever our differences in nationality, or race, or religion, or language, there are certain aspirations that we all share. To get an education. To provide for our family. To practice our faith freely (huh?). To live in peace and security. And in a 25 year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East… In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques at Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage. And, in all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”

Other stupid things Brennan said:

Brennandecried the “ignorant feelings” of Americans outraged at the jihadi attacks on American soil. And then he told Shahin and the audience of Muslim students that he “was very concerned after the attack in Fort Hood as well as the December 25 attack that all of sudden there were people who went back into this fearful position that lashed out not thinking through what was reasonable and appropriate.”

 

Sunday respite: Bach’s ‘If thou but suffer God to guide thee’

For many years I looked forward to hearing Diane Bish on T.V. as she toured the world playing the best pipe organs. I am not sure if she is still out there. This however is a favorite of mine, especially at this time of year.

Organist Diane Bish performing Bach’s “If Thou But Suffer God To Guide Thee” on the great Christiaan Müller pipe organ of the Grote Kerk or St.-Bavokerk in Haarlem (Netherlands).
