"It remains not only valid – but essential – to question
how such a strong alternative version of events ["Hands up, don’t
shoot"] was able to take hold so swiftly, and be accepted so
- Statement about
the Ferguson case of Officer Daren Wilson acting in SELF DEFENSE against
Michael Brown...Holder went on to blame the MSM for creating the false
narrative of Wilson killing the poor boy as a matter of racism.
What Holder said in the quote is true - and isn't even a
Libby quote...What's not true and is truly Libby about it is the BS Holder is
spewing with his quote. It's almost as if he really believes the American
people are as stupid as he hopes they are.
Race pimps - like Holder and Obama - were all too
willing to take the race bait and run with it in the Ferguson case.
For months they abused Officer Wilson, and fell just short of encouraging
race riots - barely short of it.
As far as wondering why the "Hands up don't shoot" meme was "accepted so readily," Holder
knows perfectly well why it was: Because they - and he- so
desperately wanted it to be true!
Prager University: Pakistan - Can Sharia and Freedom Coexist?
"We teach what isn't taught." - Dennis
Pakistan is a complete pain in the neck for the West, because it is a dual player in the battle against Islamist extremism. Pakistan's leaders do not want to be overrun by the extremists, because they know they and their families will be the first to perish...But in many ways they have a common bond with the extremists. Even if they didn't have any bonds with the extremists, the first reality keeps them from destroying them. Plus they use the extremists as a tool against their Indian enemy. That said, it's important to remember two things about Pakistan. One, they have nuclear weapons - a lot of them. Two they have long-range missiles, capable of delivering their nukes...As such, the West will continue to allow Pakistan to play it's double game, out of fear of the Islamists taking over - taking over their nuclear weapons. A couple more things to remember about Pakistan. China has taken them under their wing, and will not allow the West to meddle without trouble...Pakistan is a mild version of what Iran will become if they are allowed to become a nuclear power - except Iran is already led by extremists, which would make them much more of a problem.

"Despite Western hopes, democracy does not necessarily moderate Islamist party platforms and ideologies. On the contrary, Islamists can become even more extreme in democratic settings." - H.U.
"If the extremists prevail, the worlds fifth largest democracy will become the worlds largest terror state." - H.U.
"Oh my goodness, the 2014 election victories didn't end the war! You mean the progressives are still out there dreaming of a future full of hugs and goosestepping?" - K.S.
Colonel Kurt Schlichter is a name you need to learn - hopefully, some of you already have...He was an Army officer, and has become a powerful voice among the Conservative commentariat.
Here are two things you need to know about Schlichter - two things which give him instant credibility in Conservative circles:
1. He was enlisted to join the New Media fight by Andrew Breitbart.
2. He is HATED by the loonies at the DailyKos.
"I don't want to hear how hard this fight is. I don't want to hear how sad you are...Stop whining. Our country is at stake. This is going to be hard. To bad. Now ruck up and move out." - K.S.
Please visit the link below for a brilliant piece of Conservative Realism...As you will see, although Schlichter is surely familiar with von Clausewitz, he is equally a proponent of the Poison Pero portion of the Clausewitz/Pero Corollary

March 28, 1979 - America's worst commercial nuclear disaster occurred inside the Unit Two reactor at the Three Mile Island plant near Middletown, PA. A series of human and mechanical failures caused the cooling system to malfunction, resulting in damage to the reactor's core and the leakage of radioactivity into the atmosphere. Wide spread hysteria, fed by the anti-nuclear crowd and mismanagement of the disaster by numerous government agencies (with many false reports!) resulted in the crippling of the U.S. nuclear power plant industry and a cost of hundreds of billions to the taxpayers, ultimately leading to power shortages.
Of course this was a horrible failure, but it was contained and taught us much about how to handle such events.
The world has been lucky to not have a huge ‘accidental’ atomic explosion, but this is the risk we take when playing with the atom...A risk which must be continued, and expanded. We just need to be mindful of the power we are using, and constantly careful to maintain its safety.
Or we can plant windmills all over the place.
