Masters of Deceptive Persuasion

Hi! I’m with Dishonest!

Well, the Democrats proved just how petty, petulant, and completely untrustworthy they are for the non-ignorant world to see when they released the so-called “torture” report. So called by them, of course.

They proved they cannot be trusted with anything. They will sell you out in a heart beat for political advantage or just petty vindictiveness.

This was a “screw you” move designed to embarrass their devil incarnate, George W Bush, but make them look like Edward Snowden in their heads. They were “exposing” the real truth.

The real truth is, they exposed that they are totally untrustworthy. They are vindictive, petty, petulant and will stab you in the back in a micro-second for any political advantage or petulant “payback”.

The report spends little time condemning torture on moral or legal grounds. Instead, it addresses mainly a practical question: Did torture accomplish anything of value? Looking at case after case, the report answers with an unqualified no. (NYT)

SHOCK AND AWE! The Democrats found that Bush “torture” was ineffective! Never heard that narrative meme before now… 🙂

Former Sen Bob Kerry (D): “I do not need to read the report to know that the Democratic staff alone wrote it. The Republicans checked out early when they determined that their counterparts started out with the premise that the CIA was guilty and then worked to prove it.” (USA Today)

A U.N. human rights expert said a report that the U.S. Senate released on Tuesday revealed a “clear policy orchestrated at a high level within the Bush administration” and called for prosecution of U.S. officials who ordered crimes, including torture, against detainees. (Reuters)

So what do we get? Exactly what the Democrats wanted. Gee, I wonder how that happened. And the UN spouts off yet again. Surprise!

And proves the Democrats will do or say anything to get what they want, when they want it, and because they want it, and if you get in their way they will stab you in the back in a heartbeat. It’s all about them.

On Tuesday morning, the C.I.A. acknowledged problems in the early months of the program but suggested that they had been fixed. “The study as a whole leads the reader to believe that the management shortcomings that marked the initial months persisted throughout the program, which is historically inaccurate,” the agency said. (NYT)

Geez, it’s not like it was an Internet Video that caused it and they tried to cover it up!! 🙂

Gee, It’s not like Obamacare, after all, where NO Republican actually voted for it and we got it anyways. 🙂

Or Jonathan “You’re Stupid” Gruber. 🙂

“As far as I can tell, we are here today to beat up on Jonathan Gruber for stupid — I mean absolutely stupid — comments he made over the last few years,” he began, staring angrily at the hapless professor.

“Let me be clear, I am extremely frustrated with Dr. Gruber’s statements,” Elijah Cummings (D) continued. “They were irresponsible, incredibly disrespectful, and did not reflect reality. And they were, indeed, insulting.”

“I was in Congress when this law was debated, and Dr. Gruber does not speak for me, or the chairman of the other committees who worked tirelessly on this bill,” he said. “We debated this legislation for nearly a year before it was finally passed and signed by the president! Never once did I believe or did anyone suggest that we were somehow hiding our goals from the American people.

Oh, but you were Congressman, that was the point. But at least time your goal was very, very clear….Almost TRANSPARENT! 🙂

“But worst of all,” the ranking member concluded, “Dr. Gruber’s statements gave Republicans a public relations gift in their relentless political campaign to tear down the ACA and eliminate health care for millions of Americans!”

Yes, Congressman, opposing ObamaCare means we want people to have no insurance whatsoever and “just die” just like interrogating captured terrorists didn’t lead to information that saved American lives like getting Bin Laden.

Yes, Congressman, The Democrats have been laid bare for all to see. Those that want to see and but also what the Liberal Media will allow them to see. 🙂

Now’s that “transparency” 🙂

Pavlov’s Dog

Imagine a TSA goon not only having the power to squeeze your junk if you so much as look at them the wrong way, but also having the capability to deliver an electric shock to anyone who speaks out of turn.

In 2008, the Washington Times reported on how DHS official Paul S. Ruwaldt of the Science and Technology Directorate, office of Research and Development, wrote to Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. indicating that the Department of Homeland Security was ready to purchase devices from the company that would be used to deliver incapacitating shocks to airline passengers, all of whom would be mandated to wear the taser bracelet once they checked in for their flight.

The so-called “safety bracelet,” also known as the Electronic ID Bracelet, was designed to replace a boarding pass and be capable of tracking the passenger through the airport by means of GPS technology. The device would also contain details about the passenger and their flight plans.

The primary function of the device was to allow airport officials and flight crews to deliver an incapacitating electric shock to travelers by means of Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD), completely immobilizing the individual for minutes. The bracelet would be worn by all travelers until they disembarked at their location. The patent for the device admits that all passengers could be incapacitated if the devices are activated.

“Upon activation of the electric shock device, through receipt of an activating signal from the selectively operable remote control means, the passenger wearing that particular bracelet receives the disabling electrical shock from the electric shock device. Accordingly, the passenger becomes incapacitated for a few seconds or perhaps a few minutes, during which time the passenger can be fully subdued and handcuffed, if necessary. Depending on the type of transmission medium used to send the activating signal, other passengers may also become temporarily incapacitated, which is undesirable and unfortunate, but may be unavoidable,” reads the patent for the device.

In his letter to Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc., DHS official Ruwaldt also noted how the bracelet could be used as a “method of interrogation,” in other words a torture device. He also raised the prospect of using the device against protesters to allow the temporary “restraint of large numbers of individuals in open area environments by a small number of agents or Law Enforcement Officers.”

The letter stated that the DHS was “interested in…. the immobilizing security bracelet” and that it was “conceivable to envision a use to improve air security, on passenger planes.” Other letters made it clear that the DOD, the CDC, Department of Interior, Department of Agriculture Forestry service, as well as unnamed law enforcement agencies were also keen on acquiring the device.

Following a wave of negative publicity, the DHS pulled the plug on its interest in the torture bracelet.

However, given that the TSA is already doling out punishments for people who do not display the proper level of obedience, by either preventing them from flying , stealing their cash , or simply punching them in the balls , how far away are we from the hideous idea of the taser bracelet being resurrected?

The fact that the torture bracelet was ever seriously considered at all should send chills down the spine of every American who values their dignity, especially given the endless train of TSA abuse stories that pour in on a weekly basis. (KFYI)

And we all know how much Liberals really want to control you because ultimately they want everyone to either be them or be ruled by them because they are the perfect humans and you’re not.

You are Pavlov’s Dog!! And Janet is your owner! 🙂
You are government cattle to herded. You must eat the right foods, drive the right car, use the right power sources, read the correct information, think the correct thoughts, and do whatever the government says.
They haven’t done it yet, but maybe when if Obama is re-elected they will be more “flexible” after all, it’s for your own good and your own safety, after all.

LIBYA

Debbie Wasseerman Schultz, DNC chair: Piers, it is not okay for you to be saying that the administration was putting out completely false statements. They put out information that they had at the time based on the intelligence that they were given —
Just like Bush, Yellow Cake, and Niger…. 🙂
Ring that bell and watch Debbie slobber.
Piers Morgan: That turned out to be completely wrong.

Wasserman Schultz: Well that doesn’t mean it was false. It doesn’t mean that it was deliberate. It means that.

Morgan: What?! Now wait a minute. If you put out a false statement, then it’s false, it’s wrong. It’s both of those things.

Wasserman Schultz: But you’re suggesting that it’s … Piers, what you’re suggesting is that it was somehow deliberate. It was not deliberate. What they did was it was important to get information out that they had at the time. And they did that. And as they learned more information, they corrected the original information that they put out. But there was nothing sinister here. This was simply the president of the United States and the administration making sure that we did a careful investigation, gave the American people the information that they needed at the time that we had based on our best intelligence and then as more intelligence was gathered we gave the updated information. There is nothing sinister about that.

What’s terrible unfortunate though, is that you do — there’s no around these investigations that Republicans in Congress and Mitt Romney have left to go after the administration questioning whether or not there was any deliberate attempt to mislead. We should be closing ranks, working together to prevent this from happening again.

Morgan: Well the answer to that Debbie, is — the answer to that is to make sure that the original statements that were made are accurate. (RCP)

Not in Liberal land is not. It’s all about perception, not reality. And if they do it, it’s ok.
That’s how it works in their heads.
Afetr all, they are Homo Superior and they are just so much better than you. You really should just fall to your knees and worship the ground they walk on and the air they allow you to breathe.
If not, there’s always Pavlov’s Dog  (Or MSDNC, which the same thing).

Torturous Illogic

Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that his wife, as well as the wife of President Barack Obama, would have had “no chance” in life had it not been for government help. According to vice presidential pool reports:

Vice President Biden met with leaders from 10 colleges this afternoon to kick off a new effort to increase transparency in financial aid packages. …

“I know, literally, Barack and I talk about it. Neither one of us would have had any shot,” Biden said. “The same with our wives. Both wives are smarter than both of us. Literally, these very accomplished women would not have any chance without some help.” (free beacon)

What’s with the war on women, Mr. Vice President?

Plugs hits new levels of desperation when he’s trying to convince people they’ll have no chance of survival if his bloated government sacred cow is ever made to stop churning out Julias on a 24/7 basis. Biden’s like a big-government version of Kathy Bates in Misery reminding the hobbled James Caan, “If I die, you die” — and it’s all packaged under the guise of compassion.

Forget about just having a chance in life — the problem is that without a major course correction, it soon will be impossible to exist without government “help.” At that point Biden will be proven correct, and that’s a scary thought. (Michelle Malkin)

Speaking of Scary…

The new liberal spin (courtesy of Ed Schultz of MSNBC) that “money has entered the race” aka evil corporate money (it was never a factor before this moment-ever (Politifact says Unions gave- $206.7 million in 2008 alone)). The fact that he Unions have been pumping and pimped 100’s of millions of dollars EVERY year for decades into the process is completely missed by the sanctimonious liberals who are unhappy with the results in Wisconsin.

So the Liberal lost because evil corporate money and rich people bought the election. Class Warfare is everywhere because it is the very core of liberalism.

2010 NY Times: At over $5 million, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, a labor union, has been the biggest outside group spender on the Democratic side, followed closely by America’s Families First Action Fund, with about $4.8 million.

And gee what labor union was at the forefront in Wisconsin, AFSCME. Gee, no coincidence there! 🙂

They can’t possible have lost for any other reason than evil capitalists bought the election, after all buying elections is a Union job!!

From the White House: “While tonight’s outcome was not what we had hoped for – no one can dispute the strong message sent to Governor Walker. Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites from all walks of life took a stand against the politics of division and against the flood of secret and corporate money spent on behalf of Scott Walker…”

Love the “New Tone”. The “civility” is very evident.

But the funniest comment comes from our gal-pal DWS, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz:

Despite the disappointing outcome, #WIrecall effort sent Scott Walker a message that his brand of divisive politics is offensive & wrong.

(I’ll be right back. I have to bust several guts laughing….) 🙂

Update: Unions Lose again….In California?

The Granola State? (What isn’t fruits and nuts is flakes).

In San Diego and San Jose, voters overwhelmingly approved ballot initiatives designed to help balance ailing municipal budgets by cutting retirement benefits for city workers.

Around 70 percent of San Jose voters favored the pension measure, while 66 percent of San Diego residents supported a similar measure.

“This is really important to our taxpayers,” Mayor Chuck Reed of San Jose, said Tuesday night. “We’ll get control over these skyrocketing retirement costs and be able to provide the services they are paying for.” (NYT)

The smear & fear is to come as always. Liberals don’t know how to argue any other way.

Speaking of fear…

Protesters who picketed the restaurant last month disagreed. Madeline Bernstein, president of the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said: “People are allowed to eat food, not allowed to torture it first.”

California is going to ban foie gras.

Foie gras (play /fwɑːˈɡrɑː/; French: [fwa ɡʁɑ]); French for “fat liver”) is a food product made of the liver of a duck or goose that has been specially fattened. This fattening is typically achieved through gavage (force-feeding corn), according to French law, though outside of France it is occasionally produced using natural feeding.

Gavage dates back 4600 years.

California’s only foie gras producer is Sonoma Artisan Foie Gras, Owner Guillermo Gonzalez told The Daily Telegraph: “Our farm is being forced to shut down at the end of June, and the most unfortunate fact is that science has not been given a chance to play a role in this debate.

“Ultimately, chefs’ and consumers’ freedom of choice is being taken away. Who knows what food product is next?”

The ban was originally drawn up by John Burton who was State Senate president in 2004 and is now the chairman of the California Democratic Party.

My beef (pun intended) is more with the Food Police than the dish. I have never had it. I am unlikely to have it, not my style of food.

So what’s next on the Vegan “torture” list. Since, “torture” to a liberal generally means anything they disagree with and it’s to be used to inflame the situation and cow-tow you to their way because you don’t want to be a “torturer” now do you. (Or “racist” or a “bigot” or “mean”, “unfair” etc).

So that burger you’re eating is not only unhealthy, but you are supporting “torture”!!

Think I’m kidding?

PeTA Asia-Pacific Website:

Everyone who eats animal products is responsible for the abuse and deaths of beings with lives and personalities of their own—beings who did not choose to be carved up and put on the dinner table.

Because eating meat is torture.

And of course…

Because eating meat just isn’t fair.

Where would a Liberal be without saying that everything they disagree with isn’t “fair”!

The suffering of humans and the suffering of other animals are interconnected. By alleviating the suffering of other animals, we also help alleviate human suffering.

Will Dairy farms be next? Was that Chicken I had for dinner last night “tortured” when it’s head was cut off? Was that Fish “tortured” when it was taken out of the water and effectively drowned in the air gasping until it was dead?

PeTa A-P: And let’s not forget about fish. Whether they’re hooked through the mouth, dragged out of the ocean in nets, or “harvested” from fish farms, fish and other marine animals feel pain and don’t deserve to die.

And of course, eating meat discriminates against the poor and is not Pro-Union:

In addition to exploiting poor people, immigrants, and children and doing little to protect workers from workplace hazards, the farmed-animal industry has also been charged with union busting. When workers try to unionize, the industry uses illegal intimidation and harassment tactics to ensure that pro-union employees are silenced. According to Human Rights Watch, “Many workers who try to form trade unions and bargain collectively are spied on, harassed, pressured, threatened, suspended, fired, deported or otherwise victimized for their exercise of the right to freedom of association.”

You evil little Nazi “torturer” you!!

Give a Liberal a millimeter they’ll take a light year.

More Liberal Love, Tolerance, Compassion and Sensitivity to go with their “New Tone”: (from twitchy-twitter feeds)

Photo Opportunity

Political Cartoons by Bob Gorrell

In an interview with Steve Kroft for this Sunday’s “60 Minutes” conducted today, President Obama said he won’t release post-mortem images of Osama bin Laden taken to prove his death.

“It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool,” said the president.

“We don’t trot out this stuff as trophies,” Mr. Obama added. “The fact of the matter is, this is somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received.”

In explaining his choice not to release the photo, Mr. Obama said that “we don’t need to spike the football.” He said that “given the graphic nature of these photos it would create a national security risk.”

Since out Dear Leader is as dishonest as the day is long that makes people suspicious.

Besides, he’ll get some flunky to do so he’s not personally responsible and he can feign outrage. That is more like how our Dear Leader works.

After all, it’s likely that the “enhanced interrogation techniques” (aka “torture”) led to the information that led to Bin Laden and the Left will NEVER admit to that one!!

Even if it true.

The core conflict is the White House’s “desire to kill bin Laden but also to have the world think we did so respectfully and politely,” said Eric Dezenhall, founder of Dezenhall Resources, a PR firm. “I’m in the PR business, and I don’t think guys like me have the alchemy to persuade the public that something is the opposite of what it is,” he said, adding, “spin only gets you so far.”

This claim “reveals a certain discomfort with this side of life….[and] a belief system that says displays of strength are immoral, that it is somehow immoral to defend yourself or neutralize an enemy with force,” even when conducted skillfully and with minimum civilian damage, Dezenhall said.

A politically correct assassination. Amazing…
Of course, in the Arab world a show of strength is considered a great thing, a sign of weakness not at all.

The administration’s two-sided policy also explains their controversial decision to use Islamic ritual when disposing of his body at sea. “We were absolutely within our rights to go after the most wanted man in the world…it needs to be recognized that this [killing] is seen as a good thing throughout the world,” Carney said Wednesday. “Yet, because of who we are, we took extraordinary measures to show the kind of respect that was shown in his burial,” he added.

“I was offended they wanted to give him religious recognition” after he had killed so many Muslims and non-Muslims, and even after the administration has repeatedly called him a extremist, said Zuhdi Jasser, a former Navy doctor and the Muslim founder of the Arizona-based American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Jasser, who is seeking to combine Islam with Western ideals of personal liberty, said he would have declined to participate in the Islamic rituals used during the disposal of Obama’s body. (DC)

When hasn’t our Dear Leader had at least 2 faces on ever issue at ever time??

And there there’s the far left nuts. The ones with a virulent case of Bush Derangement Syndrome.

“So when does Seal Unit 6, or whatever it’s called, drop in on George Bush? Bush was responsible for a lot more death, innocent death, than bin Laden. Wasn’t he, or am I wrong here?,” liberal radio talk show host Mike Malloy said on his show Monday evening. (RCP)

Nice. 😦

But don’t worry, our “unity” president will get right on it, after he continues to rake in the cash for his Billion Dollar Re-election Campaign.

Although Obama said he opposes use of the photos as trophies, he is traveling to New York today for a televised wreath-laying ceremony at Ground Zero.

No Photo. But massive Photo-Op.

After all, it’s not all about HIM, is it… 🙂

But at least he has his priorities straight! 🙂

So has he been deified yet?

Going the Way of The Boob

After this story, I want you to think like Obama, Holder and the Liberals do about Muslim extremists.

That they are nothing more than civil criminals. To be tried in Civil Courts like they attempted to blow up a 7-Eleven or something.

They are reasonable people.

They can be negotiated with.

Let’s sit down and talk about it.

And profiling them is racist.

LONDON – Agents for Britain’s MI5 intelligence service have discovered that Muslim doctors trained at some of Britain’s leading teaching hospitals have returned to their own countries to fit surgical implants filled with explosives, according to a report fromJoseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Women suicide bombers recruited by al-Qaida are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery. The lethal explosives – usually PETN (pentaerythritol Tetrabitrate) – are inserted during the operation inside the plastic shapes. The breast is then sewn up.

Similar surgery has been performed on male suicide bombers. In their cases, the explosives are inserted in the appendix area or in a buttock. Both are parts of the body that diabetics use to inject themselves with their prescribed drugs.

Hours after he had failed, GCHQ – Britain’s worldwide eavesdropping “spy in the sky” agency – began to pick up “chatter” emanating from Pakistan and Yemen that alerted MI5 to the creation of the lethal implants.

A hand-picked team was appointed by Jonathan Evans, the head of MI5, to investigate the threat. He described it as “one that can circumvent our defense.”

Top surgeons who work

in the National Health Service confirmed the feasibility of the explosive implants.

In a report to Evans, one said:

“Properly inserted the implant would be virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines. You would need to subject a suspect to a sophisticated X-ray. Given that the explosive would be inserted in a sealed plastic sachet, and would be a small amount, would make it all the more impossible to spot it with the usual body scanner.”

Explosive experts at Britain’s Porton Down biological and chemical warfare research center told MI5 that a sachet containing as little as five ounces of PETN when activated would blow “a considerable hole” in an airline’s skin which would guarantee it would crash. (WND)

PETN by the way is what the “panty” bomber had on him on Christmas Day bound for Detroit from Amsterdam.

But we can’t be racist and profile them.

And we can try them in the Civilian Courts like a jaywalker.

The Obama administration, on the other hand, seems to have bent over backward to prove to the world it is not the Bush administration and will, almost no matter what, ensure that everyone gets the benefit of American civil liberties.

But the paramount civil liberty is a sense of security and this, sad to say, has eroded under Barack Obama. (IBD)

Did anyone mention to Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s  Civilian lawyer that both President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder,  and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that they all have pronounced that he will be “tried.found guilty. and executed” BEFORE the trial.

David Axelrod, the Chief of Staff and Swami Master  said KSM “is going to meet justice and he’s going to meet his maker.”

In Civilian courts that would be the charges thrown out by even the most drunk and stoned moron neophyte lawyer on the planet. Let alone what the Liberals will give him, just to be “fair”.

Can you say blind ideology?

How about stupid?

Moronic?

Idiotic?

Welcome to America 2010. The land that Ideology forgot to notice reality.

The Age (Australia):

FULL body scanners at airports are useless against the latest technique reportedly being considered by terrorists – surgically inserting explosives inside suicide bombers’ bodies – says one of Australia’s leading counter-terrorism experts.

Yet one of the best methods of detection – sniffer dogs – was barely being debated, said counter-terrorism expert Professor Clive Williams of the Australian National University.

Britain’s intelligence agency MI5 has uncovered evidence that al-Qaeda is planning to implant explosives in its operatives’ bodies, security sources have told British newspaper the Daily Mail.

Male bombers could have a plastic sachet of explosives (such as pentaerythritol tetranitrate, used in Semtex plastic explosives) inserted surgically near the appendix area or in the buttocks, the paper reported.

Similarly, female bombers could have the explosives implanted in the breast, just like an augmentation operation, the paper said, citing unnamed sources.

To set off the explosion, the bomber would inject a catalyst through the skin to the sachet, which could be done by posing as a diabetic, the paper said.

Full body scanners have been tested in major Australian airports and are due to be considered for introduction by the Federal Government.

But the machines would not detect bombs implanted in bodies or powdered explosives hidden in underwear, said Professor Williams, who is finalising a report on internal IEDs (improvised explosive devices) for American law enforcement authorities.

”Realistically, even the powdered explosives in the underwear is not going to be picked by body scanners,” he said.

Professor Williams said explosive-detector dogs were cheaper than machines and the most effective form of detection, ”yet they’re not being talked about very much, surprisingly”.

Perhaps sniffer dogs weren’t being considered for passenger screening duties because of ”an element of political correctness”, he suggested.

Some cultures have an aversion to dogs, he said. In Islam, human contact with dogs is considered unclean.

So still think profiling is racist?

And the ACLU and CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) will be right there with their lawyers to destroy you if you do.

Isn’t that just peachy! 🙂

Don’t you feel safer with them around to protect you.

Aviation security consultant Douglas Laird said someone who is technologically inclined and has a college-level science background could outsmart the explosives-sniffing devices.”It’s not a panacea,” said Laird, a retired Secret Service agent. “It’s one more tool.”

Mark Prather, explosives detection business manager for ICx Technologies, commented on Laird’s assessment.

“While it is true that a knowledgeable and motivated terrorist can challenge even the best detection equipment, we believe that for any application, the public is best served by putting the most capable piece of equipment or technology in place to meet the security objective,” Prather said in a statement. “Accomplishing this within a layered security approach is the best answer to meet and defeat potential threats. For some threats, Fido PaxPoint clearly provides the greatest detection capability.”(NH Union Leader)

But first, the Politically Correct are going to have to remove their 60’s rose-colored glasses and wake up to reality.

How likely is that?

<<<BOOM>>>

More likely, but Ideology is a hard-wired thing to break.

<<<BOOM>>>

I guess this will be George W. Bush’s Fault too… 😦

So we go they way of the Boob-y??…

I leave the last word to a Liberal: Richard Cohen (IBD)

There is almost nothing the Obama administration does regarding terrorism that makes me feel safer.

Whether it is guaranteeing captured terrorists that they will not be waterboarded, or whether it is reciting terrorists their rights, or whether it is the legally meandering and confusing rule that some terrorists will be tried in military tribunals and some in civilian courts, what is missing is a firm recognition that what comes first is not the message sent to America’s critics but the message sent to Americans themselves.

When, oh when, will this administration wake up?
