Hillary Clinton blasts ‘epidemic’ of fake news

crew-2231211She can’t give up, can she?

 

As she crawls out from her hole, she rambles on about health care and immigration, topics she claims to care about but never produced anything in the way of solutions.

Benghazi, really Hillary, fake news?

She belongs in prison along with “Slick and Obama.”
As he will go down as the worst individual in U.S. History to occupy the Oval Office at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., she will go down as his puppet and barking dog.

Look for others to follow.

Hillary Clinton is a reprobate and a dinosaur.

Apparently, she is well medicated as she is showing no symptoms.

 

The Hill

By Harper Neidig

December 8, 2016

Hillary Clinton on Thursday decried the spread of fake news online, calling it an “epidemic” that Congress should take action against.

 “The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year — it’s now clear the so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” Clinton said during a speech on Capitol Hill.

Some Democrats have argued the spread of anti-Clinton fake news online contributed to her electoral loss to Donald Trump.

 

 

The issue has received renewed attention this week after a gunman entered a pizzeria in Washington that was at the center of a false viral conspiracy theory that alleged it was home to a pedophilia ring operated by Clinton and her inner circle.

“This isn’t about politics or partisanship,” Clinton continued during her speech Thursday at a ceremony honoring retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

“Lives are at risk — lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities.”

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” she said.

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter Gets it Wrong: There are No Women Left Training in U.S. Air Force Spec/Ops

crew-2231211Once again we deal with the subject of women in the military in combat roles.

If the standards they follow are exactly that of their male counterparts, why not?

Look at Israel:

Military traditionalists say women’s combat roles in the Israel Defense Forces are exaggerated by advocates in the U.S., noting as an example a recent IDF decision to keep Israeli women from serving on main battle tanks.

women_in_idf-1

Women’s roles in the IDF have undergone numerous changes in recent years.

Some 34 percent of Israelis serving in the IDF are women, 57% of all officers are women, 28% of career officers are women, and 92% of all army positions are open to women.

Military traditionalists say women’s combat roles in the Israel Defense Forces are exaggerated by advocates in the U.S., noting as an example a recent IDF decision to keep Israeli women from serving on main battle tanks.

As the U.S. military prepares to open most, if not all, infantry, armor and special operations units to women, activists often point to the IDF as an illustration of a military in which women are thriving in ground combat units.

But a closer look shows Israeli women are not in direct combat special operations such as the Green Berets. Nor are they in front-line combat brigades mobilized to engage in direct heavy combat. (Source)

 In the infantry, virtually all of Israel’s female combat soldiers are confined to two light battalions — the Caracal and the Lions of Jordan — which are assigned to guard the borders with Egypt and Jordan, the only Arab countries that have peace treaties with Israel.

Women’s Expanded Role in Combat (Photo: Public Domain)December 8, 2016

 

Efforts have been underway to recruit females into battlefield airman positions. These roles include combat controllers, tactical air control party (TACP), special operations weathermen and pararescuemen.

Apparently misinformed, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter published a statement Saturday in Meduim.com that a female airman was in training for a TACP role.

The report stated, “Interest in the Air Force’s battlefield airmen career fields has increased, with 18 women attempting initial training. I am proud to say that the first woman has entered training to become a tactical air control party airman.”

According to the U.S. Air Force, however, the last female left the program in July due to an injury.

A spokesperson for Air Combat Command, Andrew J. Schrag, confirmed that the female in question did indeed leave the program due to medical issues and resumed her previous position in Air Force Specialty Code, reported Military.com.

Schrag stated, “At this moment, there are no women currently enrolled.”

Capt. Kristen Griest, left, and 1st Lt. Shaye Haver, right, became the first female soldiers ever to graduate from Ranger School on August 21, 2015

Applicants must pass a grueling Physical Ability and Stamina Test before being considered for a role and only a few females were considering the challenge.

The Air Education and Training Command Capt., Jose Davis, stated that only nine women had begun the testing with four withdrawing from the program and five unable to pass.

Davis stated, “When we do get the first woman in the pipeline, she’ll be in the Battlefield Airman Training Group, 37th Training Wing, at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.

US military bombs Mosul hospital as Iraqi troops retreat

The Long War Journal

The US military launched an airstrike against a hospital in eastern Mosul that was used as a command center by the Islamic State as Iraqi troops failed to seize the complex over the past several days.

The strike highlights the difficulties ahead in retaking the city, as the Islamic State remains entrenched.

 

5813a2ebc46188e7238b4598

US military officials said that Iraqi soldiers have paused in their advance on the northern city of Mosul – a stronghold of Islamic State terrorists – in order to resupply, re-position soldiers and take extra security measures.

The operation to retake Mosul began ten days ago since then Iraqi security forces and Kurdish Peshmerga forces have been conducting a village-by-village sweeps from the north, east and south heading towards the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Coalition airstrike hit Salaam hospital, used as ISIS headquarters in East Mosul at request of Iraqi forces which were under attack.

CENTCOM, announced the strike, which took place on Dec. 7, and explained the circumstances behind the operation. The US military is sensitive to hitting protected targets such as hospitals; an accidental strike on a Médecins Sans Frontières-run hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan in October 2015 killed 42 people and sparked international condemnation.

“The Coalition complies with the Law of Armed Conflict and takes all feasible precautions during the planning and execution of airstrikes to reduce the risk of harm to non-combatants,” CENTCOM stated.

 

 

According to CENTCOM, Islamic State fighters were using the Al Salem hospital complex as “a base of operations and command and control headquarters.” Iraqi troops, likely US-trained special forces that have spearheaded the assault to retake Mosul, “attempted to seize” the hospital on Dec. 6, but Islamic State fighters counterattacked.

Iraqi troops were hit with six suicide car bombs “before retrograding a short distance,” or retreating, according to CENTCOM. The US military then “conducted a precision strike on the location to target enemy fighters firing on Iraqi forces” on Dec. 7th.

The Islamic State has put up significant resistance to defend Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city.

The jihadist group has deployed scores of suicide car bombs during the fighting.

Nation of Islam Tears Down Keith Ellison’s Lies About His Past

crew-2231211Keith Ellison, his apologists, and his defenders have kept telling one lie about his past with the Nation of Islam.

 

The refrain is that all he did was help out with the Million Man March.

Just like Obama.

Of course, that’s a lie.

 

ellison_1453900908664_765537_ver1-0

 

As has been often documented, he had an extensive history with the racist  (Source) hate group which believes that white people were created by a mad scientist and will be exterminated by UFOs.

Keith Ellison Supported the BDS Movement and Admired Louis Farrakhan.

So Why Are Jewish Democrats Supporting Him for Chairman of the DNC? (Source)

(It varies from vanilla Islam in some ways.)

Ellison and Farrakhan could be identical twins, see below.

 

If he wasn’t tied to Lois Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, he would be tied to other of their propaganda wings, CAIR has been discussed  at length.      

 

 

keith-ellison-7

 

Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, which in 1983 was estimated to have between five to ten thousand members, remained little known until March 1984, when controversy (a discussion marked by the expression of opposing views) suddenly erupted over his association with presidential candidate Jesse Jackson (1941–).

Farrakhan, who had earlier advised his followers to avoid political involvements, had thrown his support behind Jackson, even providing bodyguards for the candidate.

Farrakhan had registered to vote for the first time and urged his followers to do the same.

Jackson had returned the favor by appearing as the featured speaker at the Muslim Savior’s Day rally in February 1984.

In March, however, Farrakhan called Milton Coleman, an African American reporter for the Washington Post, a traitor after Coleman disclosed that Jackson had made offensive remarks about Jewish people while speaking with campaign assistants.

In a speech, Farrakhan said of Coleman, “One day soon we will punish you with death.”

He later denied that he was threatening Coleman’s life.

Farrakhan’s role in Jackson’s campaign was greatly reduced after it became known that Farrakhan had referred to Judaism as a “gutter religion” and described Adolf Hitler (1889–1945), the German leader who caused the deaths of millions of Jewish people during World War II (1939–45), as “a very great man.” (Source)

Criticism of Farrakhan increased when it was uncovered that during the 1980s he had visited Libya and received a $5 million interest-free loan from Libyan head of state Muammar al-Qadhafi (1942–) to help build Muslim institutions and businesses.

Qadhafi was known to have provided training and money for terrorist acts. Farrakhan explained that he sought to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for African American self-improvement programs from all of the groups, including Arabs, that had been involved in the slave trade and the destruction of African culture.

farrakhan-noi**He was on record as defending  anti-Semitism since at least 1989, under the alias of Keith Hakim.**
 
But unlike the CBC, which immediately suspended its ties with the Nation of Islam after the vote, Ellison apparently saw no reason to rethink his position.

In fact, he continued to identify with Farrakhan and work actively for the Nation of Islam for years after Muhammad’s speech.

In 1995, Ellison himself organized a rally featuring Muhammad—still an outspoken racist and anti-Semite—at the University of Minnesota.

Muhammad apparently brought his A-game to the rally, promising that “if words were swords, the chests of Jews, gays and whites would be pierced.”

In 1997, Ellison defended a member of the Minneapolis Initiative Against Racism who said that Jews are “the most racist white people.”
In his remarks, Ellison also defended America’s most notorious anti-Semite.
“She is correct about Minister Farrakhan,” Ellison insisted. “He is not a racist. He is also not an anti-Semite.
Minister Farrakhan is a tireless public servant of Black people…”

In fact, Ellison continued to publicly defend Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam through at least the year 2000, by which time he was serving as a Minnesota state representative.  (He’s got to get his credentials in order for Obama)

The media has awkwardly tried to navigate around this history.

And numerous defenses of Ellison, from J Street to Think Progress, have glossed over it and dismissed it as right-wing smears.

But Ellison’s disavowal of the Nation of Islam has irritated his old buddies.

And the Nation of Islam is known to be rather spiteful to defectors.

So this piece not only confirms Ellison’s past with the hate group but adds some details.

Pearl Harbor 75th: National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration

crew-2231211Sent out a day late, but worth the wait.

 

Fighting the Japanese after their attack on Pearl has been called “The Day that will live in infamy” ~by then president F.D.R.

The Japanese fought with precision and zealotry much like we fight Islamic Jihadists in today’s wars both following the directions as coming from their deity. 

mte5ndg0mdu0ntkwnjixmtk5The Japanese considered Emperor Hirohito to be god-like

World War II lasted six years in Europe and eight years in the Pacific. American involvement in the war lasted four years from December 1941, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, to 1945, when both Japan and Germany were defeated. (Source)

The attacking planes came in two waves; the first hit its target at 7:53 AM, the second at 8:55. By 9:55 it was all over.

By 1:00 PM the carriers that launched the planes from 274 miles off the coast of Oahu were heading back to Japan.

EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT ON THE ATTACK OF PEARL HARBOR, DECEMBER 7, 1941 (RE-POST)

 

Behind them they left chaos, 2,403 dead, 188 destroyed planes and a crippled Pacific Fleet that included 8 damaged or destroyed battleships. In one stroke the Japanese action silenced the debate that had divided Americans ever since the German defeat of France left England alone in the fight against the Nazi terror.

Approximately three hours later, Japanese planes began a day-long attack on American facilities in the Philippines.

(Because the islands are located across the International Dateline, the local Philippine time was just after 5 AM on December 8.)

Farther to the west, the Japanese struck at Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand in a coordinated attempt to use surprise in order inflict as much damage as quickly as possible to strategic targets.

Although stunned by the attack at Pearl Harbor, the Pacific Fleet’s aircraft carriers, submarines and, most importantly, its fuel oil storage facilities emerged unscathed.

 

These assets formed the foundation for the American response that led to victory at the Battle of Midway the following June and ultimately to the total destruction of the Japanese Empire four years later.

The battleships moored along ‘Battleship Row’ are the primary target of the attack’s first wave. Ten minutes after the beginning of the attack a bomb crashes through the Arizona’s two armored decks igniting its magazine….

Combat Chronicle

 Units of the Philippine Division were on security missions at Manila, Fort McKinley, and Bataan prior to the declaration of war in the Pacific, 8 December 1941. After undergoing 2 days of bombings, the Division moved into the field to cover the withdrawal of troops to Bataan and to resist the enemy in the Subic Bay area. From 11 to 23 December, positions were organized and strengthened and on 23 December the Division was assigned to the Bataan Defense Forces….

Chapter 1: Childhood Memories of the Japanese-American War in the Philippines, 1941-1945  

I am writing this blog for the benefit of my children and grand children and the new generations of Filipinos who have no knowledge or memory of the Japanese invasion of the Philippines. It was 13 days before my 7th birthday when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in the morning, Sunday , December 7, 1941. That same day in the evening, Japanese planes had taken off to attack several targets in the Philippines. The Japanese had planned six landings: Bataan, Aparri, Vigan, Legaspi, Davao and Jolo Island. For the sake of clarity in this narrative, here are the important dates of that war:…

…When Japan started bombing the Philippines, I was in 2nd grade at the Jaro Elementary School,Iloilo. When my family heard of the bombings, we all panic and decided we moved from the city of Jaro, a most likely bombing target to our farm in Barotac Viejo, least likely target for bombing and Japanese occupation. Barotac Viejo,my mother’s ancestral town is a small town about 60 Km North of Jaro, Iloilo City.  

I remember every one in my family was in chaotic mood and within a couple of days we packed all the essentials we could take and the rest of our household goods we left behind at our residence in Arguelles Street. I remember clearly my mother ordered all her china and sterling silver buried at the backyard of our house. We left all the furnitures and household goods that were heavy and cumbersome….

Let us remember this day that changed the lives of Americans forever 70 years ago.

Remember all those who perished that day and the terrible destruction brought about by those who sought to destruct this great nation.

Let us also remember and thank all those who made the ultimate sacrifice and the sacrifice of their families and loved ones so that we could be free. For they are our heroes America.

There are entities who would apologize for the bravery, sacrifice and heroic efforts of the U. S. Military as if these brave souls had committed an act most unforgivable.
Nothing could be further from the truth and our heroes have nothing for which to apologize.

In fact, we as a nation, seventy years later, still owe them the greatest of debt and no attempts at re-writing history can dictate otherwise.  We will not allow it.

We honor the men, women, their families and friends on this day, seventy years later.

We thank them ALL and ask God to bless them ALL.

We will NEVER forget.

Reid predicts death of filibuster

crew-2231211Harry Reid, the retiring U.S. Sen-D, is in very tough shape if he feels his criminal activity in ObamaCare and to Obama for his signature without having the time to read it was one of his legislative highlights.

 

Tell us about it, Harry, if you were forced to use “Obama-Don’t Care,”you wouldn’t have been able to fix your eye when your wife beat you.

Harry Reid is a prime example of a U.S. Senator who died over 4o-yeas ago and they still haven’t put him out of his misery.

He goes out blaming others that’s just what the progressive left-does.

It’s good for America and good for Harry to retire.  Go home Harry and make nice with your wife.

wtflarger1Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid sits for his final interview with POLITICO in his Capitol office. | John Shinkle/POLITICO
Note, in the image above he is doing is standard W.T.F.look. 

Senate Democrats are about to get rolled on Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks.

They could spend years in the minority.

And instead of the GOP collapse that many expected on Nov. 8, it’s now Democrats soul-searching about what went wrong.

But as Harry Reid prepares to leave the Senate this month after 34 years in Washington, he says everything is just fine with his party, thank you.

Below Harry Reid admits that his fillibestur is a waste of time.

Excuese me?  Waiste time?

How does a member of conress waste time when he is doing little of anything desired by the people?

 

To hear Reid tell it, the party’s electoral collapse wasn’t a result of poor messaging or even a bad candidate.

It stemmed from looser campaign finance rules, FBI Director James Comey and the influence of a few powerful individuals — namely the Koch brothers, his long-running nemeses.

The outgoing Senate minority leader is unapologetic on behalf of his party, and remains resolute that Democrats don’t need to chart a new political course after their 2016 debacle.

“They have Trump, I understand that. But I don’t think the Democratic Party is in that big of trouble,” Reid said in a half-hour interview with Politico on Wednesday, one day before he’ll deliver his farewell address. “I mean, if Comey kept his mouth shut, we would have picked up a couple more Senate seats and we probably would have elected Hillary.”

And Reid not only refused to admit any misgivings about invoking the “nuclear option” for most nominations — a move that’s backfiring now by empowering Republicans — he predicted it’s just a matter of time before the filibuster is done away with altogether.

Though the filibuster is Democrats’ best weapon against Trump, Reid said it would be a “mistake” for his party to reflexively oppose whatever Trump proposes.

But the outgoing minority leader also wants Democrats to stand firm for their core principles, urging lawmakers to do “everything in their power” to block “wacky” Supreme Court nominees and to not be “complicit” in supporting GOP priorities like tax cuts for the rich and repealing Obamacare.

And Reid called a Republican senator a “loser” for his tirades against the Affordable Care Act, Reid’s signature legislative accomplishment as majority leader. It was a reprise of Reid’s famous put-down of George W. Bush a decade ago.

The no-apologies, no-regrets posture was true to form for the blunt-spoken son of Searchlight, Nevada, who scrapped his way to the pinnacle of power in the U.S. Senate.

But this is hardly the scenario that Reid envisioned for his departure: with a President-elect Trump and all-GOP Congress firmly in control of Washington. And Reid’s most controversial move as leader — invoking the “nuclear option” on Senate confirmations — will leave his party essentially powerless to halt Trump’s Cabinet selections.

Reid insisted that it was the right thing to do.

“I don’t know if it’s my biggest achievement, but I’m satisfied we did it.

We had to. Look at why it was done,” said Reid, who turned 77 this month. “We got almost 100 judges approved … we saved the integrity of different agencies of government. No, think of what our country would’ve been without that.”

Reid predicted that the 60-vote filibuster threshold for legislation and for Supreme Court nominees will ultimately disappear altogether — calling it a natural evolution of the chamber.

The rules are “going to erode, it’s just a question of when,” Reid said. “You can’t have a democracy decided by 60 out of 100, and that’s why changing the rules is one of the best things that has happened to America in a long time. It’s good for us, it’s good for them.”

Republicans blame Reid for most of the Senate’s stagnation in recent years, and his evisceration of the filibuster is one of their prime examples.

See the Reid’s decision to water down the filibuster prompted now-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to declare that the Nevada Democrat will be remembered as the “worst majority leader ever.”

Three years later, Reid says he understands why McConnell responded the way he did.

“I have no ill will toward him. He was mad,” Reid said. “He got his rear end kicked, OK?”

Reid even admitted that while he disagreed with McConnell’s retaliatory tactics, which led to Merrick Garland being blocked from being confirmed to the Supreme Court, he had to give Republicans credit for the result: control of Congress and the White House and, likely, a more conservative Supreme Court in time.

“Mitch rolled the dice, and he won. I told him personally: ‘Mitch, I disagreed with how you did it, but it’s admirable that you did it,’” Reid recounted.

Obama Says No Foreign-Planned Terror Attacks on U.S. in 8 Years: Watch the troops respond

Obama is so pathetic, he could not make it through boot camp, which women who want to serve their country do on regular basis.

Obama is little more that a thug, a community organizer and disbarred attorney who belongs in prison.

Perhaps the newly elected president, Donald J. Trump will accommodate him, though I seriously doubt so.

The Daily Wire
December 7, 2016
 

In a speech at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, the soon to be former commander-in-chief touted what he deems to be his national security accomplishments.

bullshit

At one point in the speech, Obama claimed that during his tenure no foreign terrorist organization “has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”

 

If Obama is selling it, you know he’s lying.

“We should take great pride in the progress we’ve made over the last eight years,” Obama declared. “No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”

The declaration was met with tepid applause among service members, many of whom simply stared back at him.

The reason such a claim is difficult to respond to enthusiastically is the grim reality of what has transpired over the last eight years: radical Islamic terrorists, most of them inspired by foreign entities, particularly ISIS, having “successfully planned and executed” attacks on innocent people on American soil:

the Ft. Hood rampage; the Boston Marathon bombing; the execution of two NYPD officers; the attack in Garland, Texas; the murder of four military servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee; the San Bernardino attack; the Pulse Nightclub massacre; the NYC Bomber; and just last week, the Ohio State jihadist. (Here’s a complete list of the radical Islamic terror attacks on U.S. soil since Obama first took office in 2009.) 

Obama’s attempt to dismiss such so-called “lone wolf” attacks, despite the role radical groups like ISIS play in fueling and directing them, is a part of his larger attempt to portray the War on Terror as a great success under his regime.

The reality here and abroad suggests otherwise.
