Glad to see that this nauseating piece of propaganda died a quick death in the ratings.

Paul Krugman’s inequality hustle (or How to Profit from Writing About Have-Nots).

Wow! Guess nobody saw that coming: ”First Quarter Of ObamaCare Sees Health Care Spending Increase At Fastest Rate Since 1980” Oh, and GDP growth has skidded to a stop because of – drumroll! – the “severe winter”.

The tyranny of federal land management: a much bigger problem than just Cliven Bundy.

The quiet jihad in America’s schools.

Just a reminder: teachers’ unions are only interested in teachers unions, not in quality education.

That’s ok, I’m pretty sure everybody else has: “Al Gore Won’t Rule Out 2016 Run for President”.

I hope, as a result of all these expensive vacations, Obama’s golf handicap is at least improving.

“McCain laughed heartily”

John McCain seems to think Ted Cruz’s suggestion that John Kerry ought to resign as Secretary of State over his outrageous statement that Israel is in danger of becoming an apartheid state is amusing.

Jeff Goldstein has an interesting take:
Ironically — at least to me — McCain was tortured for years as Kerry lied about his fellow soldier’s “atrocities” visited upon the North Vietnamese, which provided cover for the enemy and in some ways sought to tacitly justify the treatment of our POWs.

But hey: the bond of ruling class elitism is stronger than the bond of consistent patriotism, at least in McCain’s world.
Wake me when the revolution starts.

The blood still boils

Even though we've known all along (as the White House also knew) that Benghazi was not just a protest that got out of hand, additional evidence of the mendacity and cynical political calculations of this administration do not make the episode any easier to stomach.

I'd like to know, in 25 words or less

Just exactly what is the "Obama Doctrine"?

The Whig Party, redux

The other day, John Boehner mocked conservatives who don't share his faith in immigration reform, and now Cathy McMorris Rogers says to forget about repealing ObamaCare.

They either don't get it or they don't care or perhaps both. That Republican "leaders", in an election year, are turning their guns on their own erstwhile followers instead of pounding away at the creaking edifice of progressivism is just plain idiotic. And the response from conservatives should be unambiguous...

Solid, Jackson!

"We shall fight on Twitter"

Instant classic: Ace riffs on the State Department's Twitter diplomacy, channeling Winston Churchill:
Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of rising Russia and all the odious apparatus of the KGB state, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight on FaceBook, we shall fight on Instagram and Pinterest, we shall fight and, with growing follower lists and growing Likes, we shall defend our #hashtag, whatever the cost may be.

We shall fight on Twitter, we shall fight on Vine, we shall fight on the Washington Post's op-ed pages and in the New York Times' comment areas, we shall fight in Buzzfeed's gifs; we shall never surrender.

And if, which I do not for a moment believe, this #hashtag or a large part of it were hijacked by trolls, then our social media reach, armed and guarded by the writers at Media Matters and the Daily Beast, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, some miracle should descend upon us in rescue us so we can return, as we much desire, to the #WarOnWomen.

Romney wants to #BanTampons, please retweet.

Show of hands

Is there anybody out there who has ever experienced anything so awful, shameful, horrible, grotesque or otherwise revolting that, by comparison, meeting Ted Kennedy would leave you feeling "washed clean"?

Update: I really have to quote the relevant part of Elizabeth Warren's strange confession:
After pushing the button for an elevator, I put my forehead against the cool, stainless-steel wall in the twenty-fourth-floor lobby. And then I started to cry.

Politics so often feels dirty to me — all the lobbyists and the cozy dealings and the special favors for those who could buy access. But as I stood in the lobby outside Ted Kennedy’s office, I felt as if I’d been washed clean.
Rarely, if ever, have I come across a short narrative that has packed so much confusion, hysteria, disproportionate sentiment and unintentional irony into so few words. These are the ravings of a person who should not be permitted to possess sharp implements, who would probably be far better off feeding little birds through the bars on the window of her padded cell and, at the end of the day, as a reward for good behavior, being fed apple sauce (on a long spoon) by a large, kind man in a white uniform, wearing a Taser on his belt - just in case. And yet, she is a U.S. senator. Simply amazing.

Squatters reconsider

Following up on the earlier story about the military veteran whose home was taken over by squatters, I am pleased to note that justice has been done, and the squatters have moved out - one step ahead of a planned visit by a veterans' biker club (H/T: Mrs. Paco).

The impregnable Hashtag Line

Just...stop. Please.

Update: More from Steve at the Pub: "She didn't get to this level of stupid in one day, she'd have to have been exhibiting the signs for a long time, possibly all her adult life........ yet someone appointed her spokesman for the State Department."

Update II: Hey, State Department, you know what else Twitter is good for? Administering crushing ridicule (H/T: Jim Treacher).

When it comes to peeing in the punch bowl...

...nobody beats Senator John McCain for the awesomeness of his incontinence:
Clinton, a prospective 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, will appear on stage Saturday with McCain at the Sedona Forum, an annual ideas festival hosted by the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.
The McCain Institute for International Leadership. Ohhh, yeah, I know the place. It's in the middle of the block between the Joe Biden Mensa-Plus Club and Mr. McGoo's Driving School. Right across the street is the Paco Enterprises Academy of Applied Business Ethics.

It gets better:
In a statement released Thursday, McCain called Clinton "my friend" and praised her public service career.

"From her years of service as first lady, in the U.S. Senate and the State Department, one would be hard-pressed to find a leader with Secretary Clinton's informed perspective on the many challenges facing America across the globe," McCain said.
Well, considering she helped to create a lot of those challenges, I suppose the guy has a point. Guess that whole Benghazi unpleasantness is just water under the bridge, eh, John?

John Boehner, tool

Update II and bumped: There's actually a video of this performance. Creepy and childish.

Not the sharpest tool in the box, but a tool, nonetheless.
House Speaker John Boehner theatrically mocked his fellow Republican Congressmen for being afraid to reform immigration policy when he spoke Thursday before the Middletown Rotary Club in his home district.

"Here's the attitude. Ohhhh. Don't make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard," Boehner whined before a luncheon crowd at Brown's Run County Club in Madison Township.

"We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems and it's remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don't want to ... They'll take the path of least resistance."
Seems to me Boehner and his ilk are taking the path of least resistance, i.e., permitting national sovereignty to collapse upon itself for fear of alienating big businesses that like cheap labor. I can understand the Democrats' desire for creating millions of new citizens out of thin air - the donks will at least get votes and a new lease on life. But the Republicans will only get...what, exactly? A permanent minority? Will even establishment seats be safe when the total ineffectiveness of their occupants becomes indisputable?

Perhaps the most galling thing about Boehner's performance is his refusal to accept even the possibility that his opponents may actually have principled reasons for opposing his position on immigration reform. That, and the notion of Weepy John speaking in a stage whine (what, the real thing isn't revolting enough?).

Update: Robert of Ottawa, in the comments - "The American Eagle is surrounded by Ravens pecking at its liver, and it's supposed friends are Chickens."

In spite of getting a flu shot this year (and every year), I seem to have come down with something very flu-like; probably some sordid virus that was bred in the close confines of the Washington Metro system.

Update: So I drag my sick carcass into work to make a presentation to one of our committees - a presentation that has been postponed twice before - and 30 minutes before the meeting is to start, it gets cancelled. One of the directors had jet lag or something. I shoulda seen it comin'...

“Unleashing the socks of war”

Jonah Goldberg has an amusing take on a serious subject.
On April 12, the Wall Street Journal reported that the White House was still weighing requests from the Ukrainian government for other supplies such as “medical kits, uniforms, boots and military socks.”

“You want to calibrate your chest-thumps,” a senior military official told the Journal, explaining this step-by-step approach. “He does something else in Ukraine, we release the socks.”

Now, imagine you are Vladimir Putin. You illegally sent Russian soldiers without military insignia into Ukraine (a major violation of the Geneva Conventions). You lied about doing so at the time (Putin has since boasted that he did exactly that). And your aide brings in the news that a “senior military official” of the United States has announced that if you take another step toward carving up Ukraine, the U.S. will be forced to give the Ukrainians the socks they’ve been asking for.

Law vs. the higher justice

Spring has sprung here at the Paco Command Center, and the blossoming forsythia, hyacinths and wild plum trees seal the deal.

Ah, yes...spring. When a young man's fancy turns lightly to thoughts of...guns and ammo. Here's a little beauty I picked up the other day: a Smith & Wesson Model 58, from the Classics Collection.

This is the duty version of the more deluxe Model 57. During its regular production run from 1964 to 1977, it was marketed to police departments. Chambered in .41 magnum, the side arm never really caught on as a service revolver - partly due to the erratic availability of lower-charge cartridges in that caliber (the thing does pack a wallop) - but the .41 gained popularity with sport shooters and hunters. Today, guns in this caliber have a certain "cult" following, of which I am a proud member.

Incidentally, that thing sticking through the trigger guard to prop the gun up for the photo is a genuine limited edition Junior Johnson pocket knife, given by the great NASCAR legend (and moonshiner) to his former nemesis, Old Paco - in later years, when both had retired and buried the hatchet.

Smart (as a cow) diplomacy

Secretary of State John Kerry – to whose name the word “hapless” seems destined to be appended in the history books of future generations – received a considerable amount of flak from Senator John McCain the other day on the subject of his…well, hapless foreign policy.

Now, God knows, John McCain is one of the shabbiest and most useless ornaments of the Republican Party – the political equivalent of one of those coconuts decorated to resemble a human head that one might win at the ring-toss booth at a carnival – but he is on the mark when he suggests that Kerry is about to hit the “trifecta” of failure, citing the Secretary’s incompetence on Syria, Israel and Iran.

The truth, however, is that this unbroken string of failures belongs not so much to John Kerry as to Barack Obama, whose knowledge of, and interest in, foreign affairs seems to be on a par with his expertise in, say, pre-Columbian artifacts or the migratory patterns of the Hudsonian Godwit (Limosa haemastica). I cannot recollect a U.S. president so thoroughly incurious as to the doings of foreigners, nor as ignorant of their designs and stratagems. In a time of renewed Russian imperialism, mad mullahs in pursuit of nuclear weapons, and metastasizing terrorism throughout the Middle East and Africa, this level of obtuseness is not only embarrassing but positively dangerous – and not simply for America, but for the world.

Just as Catholic priests in the 16th century included in their liturgical prayers an appeal to God to deliver the faithful from the Turk, I try to remember to submit a daily petition to the Almighty to deliver us from the Jerk, and from the appalling consequences of his execrable reign.

If I were president…

…I believe my first official act would be to get rid of the TSA.
A woman claims an airport security agent refused to let her disabled sister on board a plane because she couldn’t say her own name.

Sherry Wright says she was shocked at the treatment they received at Los Angeles International Airport, where her sister Heidi was due to fly to Phoenix.

The problems began when Heidi, who was left wheelchair-bound and unable to speak or write after a stroke a decade ago, was stopped by the Transportation Security Administration due to an expired driver’s license, CNN reported.
Wheel-chair bound and unable to speak or write. Kinda unsurprising that she wouldn’t have a current driver’s license, isn’t it? And it’s generally known – even to people of the meanest intelligence –that stroke victims frequently suffer from impaired speech. Sounds like another bully with a badge.

The use of robotics in school

At least, I imagine these “people” are robots: programmed to respond in one way and one way only to defined events, no individual judgment allowed.
Glen Meadow Middle School seventh grader, Ethan Chaplin, was recently suspended after, he says, he was simply twirling a pencil in math class. News 12 New Jersey reported that the Vernon Township, New Jersey teenager was twirling a pencil with a pen cap on top when another student yelled, “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.” But Ethan denies that interpretation of his actions and said that the student who yelled the comment had been bullying him earlier that day and was just trying to get him in trouble.
Oh, it get’s worse.
Although Ethan explained the bullying situation, he says that administrators ignored his side of the story. The teen was taken to the principal’s office and News 12 notes that, “he was suspended, pending the outcome of a psychological evaluation.”
And worse.
Infowars ([yeah, I know, but the story looks legit so far – Paco] spoke to Mr. Chaplin, who explained the five-hour long physical and psychological evaluation that his son endured, possibly for naught. Chaplin told the outlet, “The child was stripped, had to give blood samples (which caused him to pass out) and urine samples for of all things drug testing…Then four hours later a social worker spoke to him for five minutes and cleared him. Then an actual doctor came in and said the state was 100 percent incorrect in their procedure and this would not get him back in school.”
The lights are going out all over the country...

Coming to a theater near you

Al Gore’s apocalyptic fabulism - which achieved a measure of fame among the credulous devotees of the Gaia cult nearly a decade ago with the release of his crockumentary, the risibly entitled An Inconvenient Truth – is apparently being revived in a sequel to the original film.

Or is it really?
"We have had conversations," producer Lawrence Bender tells THR. "We've met; we've discussed. If we are going to make a movie, we want it to have an impact."
Hmmmm. This sounds a lot like the way I would describe my reaction to an unsolicited, and unsuccessful, sales pitch made to me a while back by a young fellow selling some kind of “revolutionary” attic insulation. We met, too. And we had a conversation. And that was…that.

Bender’s insistence on having an impact is understandable because, in spite of the first film’s fairly sizeable revenues, it has not been easy keeping all those sloping brows in a fevered state.
But Bender believes that during the ensuing years, the fossil-fuel industry has changed the dialogue with a misinformation campaign. "They did a really good job of pushing back and confusing people," he says. "Some people actually believe global warming doesn't exist."
Fancy that. I suppose Exxon/Mobil is…what, exactly? Blending mind-control chemicals in with its gasoline? Buying people off with discounted windshield wipers? If we ask Harry Reid, I’m sure we’ll find out that the Koch brothers are somehow behind this diabolical denialism.

Envirophiliac Laurie David also weighs in on the idea of a sequel.
"God, do we need one," she says. "Everything in that movie has come to pass. At the time we did the movie, there was Hurricane Katrina; now we have extreme weather events every other week. The update has to be incredible and shocking."
Well, yes, that whole Katrina thing was a real eye-opener, because it was the first time in recorded history that a hurricane ever blew ashore in Louisiana. That is, if we don’t include the 49 other hurricanes that have hammered the state since 1851. And the reference David makes to extreme weather events happening every other week? Boy, I’ll say! I’ve shoveled enough snow this winter to build a two-story igloo. So, yeah, if that’s global warming, let’s get rid of it.

I’m surprised she didn’t vanish in a puff of smoke

“Barack Obama gave abortion leader House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi a rosary blessed by Pope Francis.”

Good news!

We federal government employees are dying out!
“Only 9 percent of the federal workforce is made up of people younger than 30 — compared to 23 percent of the total U.S. workforce,” the report says. “By 2017, nearly two-thirds of the Senior Executive Service, our nation’s career leadership corps, will be eligible for retirement, and about 31 percent of the government’s permanent career employees will be able to head out the door.”
I myself have three years, 9 months and 24 days to retirement. Not that I’m counting.

About as believable as anything else this administration says

Did ObamaCare get its 7 million enrollees by the administration's self-imposed deadline? I think the answer is twofold: (1) Probably not, and (2), as Hillary would say, what difference does it make? Bryan Preston opines:
So today, the day after the same administration that has cooked the books on deportations, and cooked the books on unemployment, the same administration that lied about Fast and Furious, lied about Benghazi, lied about “green jobs,” lied about last week’s meeting with the Pope, and whose IRS abused the president’s critics — the leader of that administration touted “7.1 million sign-ups” for Obamacare.
Bryan continues:
But the most ghastly aspect of the president’s speech was its celebratory tone. This president stood in the Rose Garden in the lawn of the people’s house. He used force to coerce Americans into doing what he wants for the sake of politics and power. An American president should never celebrate taking freedoms away from Americans. This president has, and he is pleased with himself for doing it. He basks in the applause of those who celebrate with him, as if it’s an achievement to use the full force of government to impose yourself on others.
So whether the target was reached or not, we're clearly farther down the road to liberal fascism. Yay.
