Busy busy bees… 14 October 2009

Posted by marisacat in 2008 Election, 2010 Mid Terms, 2012 Re Election, Afghanistan War, California / Pacific Coast, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, Lie Down Fall Down Dems, San Francisco, The Battle for New Orleans, WAR!.

From a few days ago in the Situation Room, not that it matters. Could just sprinkle lye over them and leave them in place. I read that the Brits are sending 500 more troops into Afghanistan, heavily weighted with Rules of Engagement.  As well, a few days ago, they announced a (small number) return to Iraq… after a showy departure a few months ago.

It will never end.

Helen Thomas graced us yesterday…. and BTW so will Ob, tomorrow he cuts out of depressing, old, black, poor fucked New Orleans.. and comes to the arms of San Francisco progressives or liberals or whatever we are. Who knows by now.  ATM of the West…

It’s one thing when the Financial Times says Barack Obama “seems to float like a butterfly — and sting like one…”

Even if the gently biting British criticism does come from one of the few publications that successfully charges for some of its content — journalism is all about commerce platforms these days — we’re still talking the Brits here. Hey! Who won the war? as White House press lioness and legend Helen Thomas once said to then-German Chancellor Helmut Kohl in her bawdy and distinctly American style of directness.

But it’s another thing entirely when Ms. Thomas herself says that Mr. Obama “lacks courage.”

There was a gasp in the crowd when the veteran reporter, who’s covered and stuck her thumb in the eye of 10 presidents from her front row White House briefing room seat, made that comment yesterday at a San Francisco Commonwealth Club Q&Asnip

Gasped!  They gasped!  The remedy for that is prawns knocked backed by champagne.  (It’s a little early for crab season.)  Or a very very dry Martini.. with no food – the olive is lunch.  Both staples of the city.


UPDATE, 2:56 pm, on the Pacific Ocean

I went over to Talk Left to see if Tentola had picked up on the slithery blither of a “rant” yesterday over at Booman Tribune (catnip linked to it).  He linked to this from Greenwald.

Poor Eugene.  Honey, they’d pull that Civil Rights rug out from under you so fast.  The whole thing is conditional … and Ob is window dressing.  (Good luck!).  How is Eugene different from Sully who had the fucking temerity to say that those who opposed Iraq War were FIFTH COLUMNISTS?

What sick hacks are seeded in our systems.

(bolding and other emphasis is Greenwald’s)

Yesterday in The Washington Post, Eugene Robinson returned to the DNC’s pernicious theme of last week by arguing that those who were “mocking our nation’s leader . . . as unworthy of” the Nobel Peace Prize have “joined with the Taliban”; are “exhibiting what [conservatives], in a different context, surely would describe as ‘Hanoi Jane’ behavior”; have violated core precepts of “good manners”; and deviated from the “only reasonable response“:  to congratulate the President.  But also yesterday, Matt Taibbi wrote one of the most scathing (and typically insightful) criticisms yet of Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, based on the twisted understanding of “peace” which Western Europe and the U.S. uniquely share and the “change” that Obama actually seems to represent.

Has Taibbi really committed a breach against public decency by expressing doubt that Obama’s actions reflect genuine aspirations for peace?   That’s not a legitimate view?  That can’t reasonably be questioned and debated?  How about the numerous liberals (Ezra Klein, Robert Reich, The Nation‘s Richard Kim, Naomi Klein) and — according to one poll — a majority of American and British citizens who also believe the Prize was not deserved?  Are we actually at the point for some people — as we seem to be — where a person is not only obligated to assume the core goodness of Obama but also agree and affirm that, a mere nine months into his presidency, he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize?   That’s now a mandated belief?  In order to be a good, patriotic citizen and a decent human being, that‘s the requirement one has to fulfill?  If that became the prevailing view, wouldn’t the distinction Ambinder highlighted between the Bush and Obama years cease to exist?  snip

We are rife with racism in this country, rife with organised diversion and division – going back hundreds of years.  But charges of racism at ordinary, if vehement, criticism as well as open dislike of Ob (oh count me in – I have never argued against anyone who dislikes a pretzel, FREE COUNTRY – they say!) is simply thuggishness.  As is slandering ordinary people as subversives for disagreeing, however strongly, with acts of the State…

Dipshit lectures.

However… Glenn misses a few oars in the slave ship:

At least as I always perceived it, the “liberal blogosphere” — to the extent that’s a cognizable entity — has devoted itself to criticisms of two failed institutions:  (1) the establishment media and (2) the Democratic Party leadership.

Naa-naa.  The job of the organised Liberal Blahgosphere has been, over all, to corral the hapless, intimidate open debate and, in timely fashion, reinforce sublimation.  To “rebel” just enough to keep the faithful tuned in… and again, at the right time, to change the tone and temper of the argument.

It is an organ of the party it serves.

Last, here is a good laugh also via Glenn, if you needed one:

UPDATE:  Arianna Huffington argues today that Joe Biden — who has led the internal administration debate against escalation in Afghanistan — should resign in protest if Obama orders more troops to that war.  She makes a good case against escalation and a better case than one might think for why Biden should resign.

What a scream.  She misses the entire slave ship.  Biden resign. Over principle.  Yeah right.  The last resignations of any value, post Saturday night massacre (Cox and Richardson) were Cyrus Vance under Jimmy… Edelstein under Clinton over welfare ”reform” and the three diplomats at the opening of Iraq War.

Dipshit lectures… ’til they haul the hapless faithful back in and set in motion the ship.  You know, that slow turning ship Ob loves to mention.

Biden has principles?

marisacat - 14 October 2009

Principles hiding in the hair plugs. I guess. Arianna just likes whack jobs is my guess.

2. Madman in the Marketplace - 14 October 2009

Love this sentence in the Taibbi:

Like most awards the Prize has evolved into a kind of maraschino cherry for hardcore careerists to place atop their resumes, a reward not for dissidence but on the contrary for gamely upholding the values of Western society as it perceives itself, for putting a good face on things (in Obama’s place, literally so).

Someone shove Cali off the cliff.

Maria has been caught a THIRD time on her cellphone, hand held in her car (I could not care less, one way or the other). Arnold is making jokes about not getting any action if he “cracks down on her”.

AND in a replacement segment to the far side of the Bay Bridge, a dangerous “S” curve which has been nothing but non stop accidents since it was installed Labor Day weekend (two big trucks flipped over in the past three days)… a big Safeway 18 wheeler over turned going too fast thru the S curve… and for some god damned reason, prior to hauling the damned thing off the bridge, they have Cal Trans personnel UNLOADING the truck. As another truck works its way slowly to meet the vans carrying the unloaded cargo.

People have gotten out of their cars to watch the fiasco.

And traffic is backed up literally deep into the East Bay. Been going on for hours.

Madman in the Marketplace - 14 October 2009

maybe she already has her phone on vibrate, and gets all the action she needs.

marisacat - 14 October 2009

she was pretty silent over the first two… but now with a third (and in a third vehicle, this one a big Land Rover SUV) she says “Sorry!”.

Just such a good exemplar of “it all”.

Contraception, Legal Abortion Could Prevent 70,000 Deaths A Year

What does reduce the rate of abortions? Contraception. Worldwide, the rate of unintended pregnancy has dropped, just as the rate of contraceptive use among married women has risen. And Eastern Europe, where the greatest decline in abortion was reported, has seen a corresponding rise in contraceptive use. Unfortunately, only 28% of married African women use contraception, and one in four has an unmet need for contraceptives — meaning she is fertile and sexually active but does not currently want to have a child. Most commonly, the problem is lack of availability.

The Catholic Church, which has a lot of influence in many of the developing countries where the most unsafe abortion occurs, is pretty much holding its hands over its ears and singing through this news. Deirdre McQuade of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities says, “We need to be much more creative in assisting women with supportive services so they don’t need to resort to the unnatural act of abortion.” This stance is pretty unsurprising. A little more disturbing is McQuade’s take on contraception. According to the AP, she says “that use of artificial contraception could increase a women’s health risks and said they would fare better using natural family planning methods approved by the church.” Given that “natural family planning” can require careful timing on the part of both partners, it may not be an effective method in places where women’s status in a relationship is low. And of course, it doesn’t protect against STDs. It would have made sense for McQuade to cite religious objections to contraception, but describing as a “women’s health risk” the very thing that can protect women from both unsafe abortion and disease just seems ridiculous.

McClatchey has some excellent pieces up.

Taliban strength in Afghanistan nears military proportion
By Jonathan S. Landay and Hal Bernton | McClatchy Newspapers

A recent U.S. intelligence assessment has raised the estimated number of full-time Taliban-led insurgents fighting in Afghanistan to at least 25,000, underscoring how the crisis has worsened even as the U.S. and its allies have beefed up their military forces, a U.S. official said Thursday.

Another from Mcclatchey..
Are Obama advisers downplaying Afghan dangers?

They also have an audio report by Landay on the Sept 8th “ambush”(Well, we ARE the Invaders)
The audio is a must…about 15 min describing the Sept 8th ..how do you put it? ..COUNTER counter insurgency tactics?.. by the locals.

Landay’s frank report has everything one needs to understand why the US military is being defeated there. Especially in such terrain…The report has it all… The foolish foolish thrist of a “mission”, quickly followed by the fear of being flanked while outgunned, outnumbered , and pinned down. But most importantly, and IMO it comes through in the piece…. is the sense of being overrun by a well prepared, organized, and totally committed adversary. On their turf. And WELL before they would allow us to get to their homes.

Gad…How Presumptuous can we be?

US Mil rolled HumVees through a valley to toss a village at 3 am and then have a “meeting” with local elders to get them to support the local government. and the desperation when there was no Air Cav coming.

Air support? Gunships flying through mountain valleys? The ones Supposed to be there after the call went out in 5 to 10 minutes…?
Yeh well…

Took an hour and a half to show up. Why?
Landay ..on the audio ..
.reports that the Pilots were shot on the initial run …

Obama’s War Now. His.
and his followers.
Not that Oblablah cares. Afterall, who says Wars have to be morally justifiable or even rational according to the very low bar set by the military…

They are flag draped cover for MONEYMAKING OPERATIONS.

BooHooHooMan - 14 October 2009

Sorry. Bockquote supposed to close after “US offical said Thursday..”

marisacat - 14 October 2009

They are flag draped cover for MONEYMAKING OPERATIONS.

Possibly as many (officially) as 45K to Afghanistan. Luv how Gibbs denies. Do they tell him anything? Seems not, even when denial is just stalling, he really is a dumb mess.

Ah well. Such a smart WH. So smart.

Stagnant Prices Prevent Social Security Increase

President attempts to preempt this morning’s announcement, encouraging Congress to provide a payment of $250 to help seniors, disabled.

BooHooHooMan - 15 October 2009

This is one cheap Nigger.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

well honestly he is just one more pretzel. The government needed a softer face than Bush. or Cheney. I think he is a cold bastard, more than a whiff of narcissism… but still imo he does nto have a seat at the table. Not unlike GWB, imo.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

well I happened to read a few months ago that there would be no COLA for two years (reports today are carefully saying just 2010) … No idea who put Ob up to this… but the story is, unlike 2008 providing 5.8 raise based on energy costs, the government feels there is no need for a raise for two years.

HOWEVER, in earlier reports, but not in the flurry of news NOW, Medicare costs WILL be going up. AND Medicare Part D. I also read a few weeks ago, that Congress was looking at a one time payment to try to relieve the imbalance.

Guess someone woke up and decided it had better have Ob’s name on it all, so he can try not to piss off too many seniors. (I do get a kick out of watching him flip off thsi group or that group, very entertaining)

Again, not news, but just getting the page one headlines this go round.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

ha! These are the first lines from the Bloomberg article running one down from top at Google News:

Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama has proposed spending $13 billion to give Social Security recipients $250 apiece as the Labor Department announced that they may not get a cost-of-living increase this year for the first …

EXCEPT it is decided and it will be two years. The reports all say first time since 75, but earlier reports used 82.

I read some tired drivel about congress the other day, and used it to drop a line (useless as it is) to Pelosi about this… (and that congress, what a shock, is the Wed Thurs Club again… so shocked)

Busy bees, playing with the base.

10. marisacat - 15 October 2009

o FFS… I wake up to Beau Biden on GMA.

ugh. Time for coffee… and the mute button.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

the Cuomo kid referred to the Biden kid as a “big tough Army captain”.. without mentioning he is a JAG.

We are so endlessly screwed.

11. catnip - 15 October 2009

re: the Helen Thomas remark. Some kossack was OUTRAGED that John at AMERICAblog had translated that into Helen calling Obamalama a “coward”. How dare anyone make a “character attack” on Obama? I told the guy that if people are allowed to call him “courageous” etc etc – complimenting his character – then they certainly are also allowed to talk about negative aspects of that same character.

Such children.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

He is our foundling… we must protect him.

12. marisacat - 15 October 2009

Sooo… how is the much vaunted “J street” doing?

October 15, 2009

* Congress

Gillibrand, Schumer, drop out of J Street conference

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has asked to be removed from the host committee for a conference of the left-leaning Jewish group J Street and was “unaware” she had been included on the group’s list of supporters, spokesman Matt Canter said.

Her withdrawal comes after her political mentor, Chuck Schumer, also refused to participate in the event, and as the place of J Street — positioning itself as liberal but staunchly “pro-Israel” — remains hotly contested in American political circles. . . . . .

well… it has been said Schumer “owns” her vote.

So democratic. So liberal. SO MACHINE POLITICS.

One month of snow falls on Calgary in just two days

And every year – guaranteed – we have 100-200 accidents on the first snow day because people prefer to be blissfully unaware that it does, in fact, snow here.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

oh puhleese! weather extremes! 😆 … 🙄 …. 😆

We got 13.9 inches [of rain] in a few hours… at Mt Unhumun (yes that is right) in the hills above Santa Cruz.

we get accidents first day of rain. The DUST makes the roads slick.

wu ming - 15 October 2009

worse than the dust is the oil. and in the central valley, months of sun-stewed tomato juice dripping off the hoppers of the tomato trucks.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

hmm I had not thought of the produce drippings….

14. catnip - 15 October 2009

And now the sports…

I see Obamalama is in NOLA.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

he comes here, due in at 5 pm. St Francis Hotel on Union Sq.

Streets diversions and barriers are already going up in the downtown district. We are blessed. 🙄 As one political pundit said, actually the JOB of the president is to fund raise in secure areas for this party. I guess that makes us officially the “money base”… we were the biggest single fund raise for Ob, outside of Chicago area.

it’s a job…. 😆

Meanwhile in Stockholm, David Suzuki wins a 2009 Right Livelihood Award, as does Catherine Hamlin “for her fifty years dedicated to treating obstetric fistula patients, thereby restoring the health, hope and dignity of thousands of Africa’s poorest women.”

catnip - 15 October 2009

Congrats to both of them. Suzuki is a Canadian institution.

17. catnip - 15 October 2009

How bizarre. On CNN: A 6 yr-old boy floating over CO in an experimental, mushroom-shaped, 20 ft helium balloon that he apparently got into at home has upstaged Obamalama in NOLA.

That thing is cruising. They’re showing the “flight”. This doesn’t look like it’s going to end well.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

I imagine Ob is relieved. The nation will skip another one of his “structured” town halls.

But how very odd, a child on the loose in a big helium balloon.

catnip - 15 October 2009

It made a pretty soft landing. Now they’re checking to see if the boy’s actually in there.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

back to ob coverage!

I was amazed ot hear it was a soft landing. What an advert for the balloon!

catnip - 15 October 2009

Hmmm…no boy in the balloon.

marisacat - 15 October 2009

did he fall out? It seems odd, frankly.

But who knows.

catnip - 15 October 2009

They’re saying his sibling said he fell out close to the time it took off. No idea..

BooHooHooMan - 15 October 2009

Hey Jimmy, if I pull this string here, what-

The NYT is saying the locals think the kid is on the lam in the neighborhood fearing recriminations.

I certainly hope that’s the deal for the kid’s sake, and we can get on with working over NORAD, American Paranoia ,. and the like…

Described by CNN’s “Hot air balloon expert” as a “giant Jiffy-Pop”.

Crews searching for box that was on bottom of aircraft

The aircraft was a dome-shaped, 20 foot, 5 foot aircraft covered with foil. As it was flying, it was going about 20-25 mph.

A spokesperson with Fort Collins Police said, “This balloon was never meant to actually carry anybody. It was just a family project they were working on. The little compartment where their son is in is very small and it’s not attached very well.”

Police say the family’s two boys were playing outside with the rest of the family inside the house. One son watched his little brother go inside the compartment and watched the balloon take off.

Let’s hope they find the little guy before it’s cold and dark.

BooHooHooMan - 15 October 2009

There’s No Business Like Show Business….

Update | 4:39 p.m. Authorities continued to search the neighborhood for Falcon Heene, and this was not the first time he made national news.

The Heene family appeared twice on ABC’s Wife Swap.

The “storm-chasing family,” as ABC Television described the family of three young boys on the network’s Web Site was so popular, they became part of the 100th episode, where they swapped with a psychic, performing-arts loving family — the Silvers — from Florida.

Extending that 15 min?

marisacat - 15 October 2009

how can you appear TWICE on a dumbass show like Wife Swap?

When I heard that, I wondered what is up?

One report now says there was an underbasket that is [now] missing.

Stork? Take this bundle back.

BooHooHooMan - 15 October 2009

The underbasket is supposed to be a samll battery case.
Welp. They got us. LOL.
All I can say is keep ordering items online , LOL – because whoever the fuck these people are, they’re going to plastered over every checkout counter from here to New Zealand.

Which leads us to that NORAD Budget…LOL..not to mention new found inspiration to launch a giant flying Ass over DC. LOL.

Here he is now! The guy flying what appears to be a large yet exquisitely shaped pair of buttcakes over the Capitol!

marisacat - 15 October 2009

ok the stork can take back the missing small battery case basket.

Is this a virgin removal? As opposed to a virgin birth?

“I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house,” Bardwell said. “My main concern is for the children.”

…He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.

“I don’t do interracial marriages because I don’t want to put children in a situation they didn’t bring on themselves,” Bardwell said. “In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer.”
