Sadly, this is one of the rare instances where the “death penalty” makes sense.  Some criminal humans are too dangerous to their custodians and must be put down for everyone’s safety.  We, as a society, must do better job at protecting ourselves and our employees.

RANT: The Boomless Bombs, by L. Neil Smith

Eight or nine suspicious packages are “delivered” to the addresses of various prominent Democrat opinion leaders and “strategists”. (I’ll bet that Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell are furious as hell that they didn’t get one, when Maxine Waters got three.) The round-heeled mass media, including the Murdoch-owned and-controlled Fox “News” Network immediately mischaracterize them as “bombs”. But they are not bombs. I repeat, they are not bombs. They have no ignition devices. They can’t go off. It’s like accusing a eunuch of rape.Think hard now: exactly who does that serve?Scum-sucking leftist politicos in lockstep, along with their bottom-feeding accomplices in the mealy-mouthed media begin to blame these “bombs” on Donald Trump, claiming that he has created “an atmosphere of violence” with his demands that Hillary Clinton, a known felon, be locked up for her criminal behavior, for destroying the legislative foundations of the socialist Utopia they had all looked forward to ruling for a century, and for pointing out that the news floozies and gentlemen-of-the evening in the “legacy” (meaning leftover) media are not friends of the American people, to whom they’ve been lying for at least fifty years, or of their liberties under the Constitution and American tradition.In fact, Trump has created an atmosphere of blunt truth.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Suspicious packages spotlight vast postal surveillance system | Notes From The Bunker

The U.S. Postal Service regularly photographs the front and back of every piece of U.S. mail, or about 150 billion parcels, envelopes, and postcards every year. A longstanding practice known as the “mail cover” program enables law enforcement to obtain address information and images of the outsides of mail as part of an investigation without the need for a warrant through the Postal Inspection Service, the U.S. Postal Service’s policing arm.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Is Education a Constitutional Right? | | Tenth Amendment Center

An article in the September issue of The New Yorker makes the case that education is a fundamental right guaranteed by the Constitution. It’s not. Public schools in Detroit are failing to educate students. Just like they are failing to do so in many large cities throughout the country. A case in the federal court system, Gary B. v. Snyder, filed by Public Counsel and Sidley Austin LLP on behalf of a class of Detroit students, argues that students in Detroit public schools who failed to learn how to read were denied their due process and equal protection rights under the Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment. The case was dismissed by a federal district court in Michigan in June, but has been appealed to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. The plaintiffs, as well as the writer of the piece in The New Yorker (Jill Lepore) cite the Supreme Court case of Plyler v. Doe (1982). In his book The Schoolhouse Gate: Public Education, the Supreme Court, and the Battle for the American

What we have here is a failure to communicate!

Rights can only be “negative”; “positive” ones require someone to pay for them.

A “right” to healthcare implies that the doctor must treat you or that someone has to pay for your care.  Either way someone is being made a slave!

So to, a “right” to “education”, enslaves someone to deliver or pay for that “education”. Again someone is enslaved.

It’s interesting that in poor third world countries, parents get their children educated.  Often without their Gooferment’s help and in some case despite their Gooferment’s hostility.

Here in the good old USA, the Gooferment “promises” to educate the children but fails miserably.  Yet, the enslaved Taxpayers are continually robbed to spend more and more money on a broken system.

 TINFOILHAT: “Fake news” Rathergate

*** begin quote ***

Case Study 1: Rathergate

My first case study is the episode known as Rathergate. It represents one of the great journalistic frauds of our time. It is a case study in the fabrication of fake news and partisan bias. The Rathergate scandal erupted from a 60 Minutes Wednesday segment rushed to air on the evening of September 8, 2004, in time to influence the approaching presidential election pitting George W. Bush against John Kerry, as it was clearly intended to do. The segment consisted of two parts that didn’t quite fit together except in their antipathy to Bush.

In the first part, based on an interview with the vice chairman of Kerry’s national finance committee, Rather essentially claimed that political influence had been brought to bear to secure Bush’s admission to the Texas Air National Guard as an interceptor jet pilot in 1968. In the second part, based on documents supposedly from the “personal file” of Bush’s commanding officer, Rather reported that Bush had defied an order to take a physical necessary to maintain his flight status and, among other things, thus failed to discharge his military obligations. The segment was produced and written by Mary Mapes.

In researching the story, Mapes had interviewed witnesses with firsthand knowledge of the Texas Air National Guard’s personnel needs. She was told that they needed pilots at the time and that no influence would have been necessary to secure Bush’s admission. The documents on which Rather based the second segment proved to be fabricated on Microsoft Word in the computer era, not typewritten in the early 1970s by Bush’s commanding officer or anyone else. The content and format of the documents also betrayed their fabrication. The story began to fall apart within a few hours of its broadcast. On September 20, 12 days after the broadcast, Rather extended an apology “personally and directly” to viewers for his inability to authenticate the documents.

To investigate what happened, CBS commissioned a panel chaired by former attorney general Richard Thornburgh and former Associated Press president Lou Boccardi. Released in January 2005, the report provides evidence proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the entire segment was false and/or fraudulent from beginning to end.

Mapes was promptly fired as were three other executives with responsibility for the story. Rather stepped down from the CBS Evening News in March 2005 and was let go from the network the following year.Writing about the 60 Minutes segment on the morning after the broadcast on Power Line, I posted a brief item linking to the 60 Minutes story and the PDF copies of the documents that CBS had made available with the online version of the story. Thinking there might be something more to be said about it than what 60 Minutes had reported, I called my post “The 61st Minute” and published it on Power Line at 7:51 a.m.

Together with my colleague John Hinderaker, I updated the post with additional information provided by readers and fellow bloggers through the early afternoon. By noon, anyone following along online could see that the 60 Minutes segment had been based on fabricated documents and falsehoods. The 60 Minutes segment, reported with great earnestness by Rather, had been produced by knaves or fools, or both.

Rather and Mapes nevertheless persuaded CBS News to stick with the story for nearly two weeks before Rather rendered his on-air apology. In his 2012 memoir Rather Outspoken — that’s the title he gave it; it should have been Rather Full of It — Rather reveals that he didn’t mean it. Both he and Mapes stand behind the story and the authenticity of the documents.

Mapes too wrote a memoir standing by the story (Truth and Duty, published in late 2005). In 2015 Hollywood made a film out of Mapes’s memoir — starring Robert Redford as Rather and Cate Blanchett as Mapes. They called the film Truth, purporting to tell the Rathergate story from the inside.

Despite Mapes’s responsibility for perpetrating a shocking journalistic fraud, the film portrays Mapes as a heroic figure. Mapes not only gets a stellar actress to play her, she is portrayed as a martyr to the First Amendment and a victim of corporate cowardice. By contrast, the film portrays the attorneys who supported the work of Thornburg and Boccardi as cartoon villains. The events depicted in the film had happened only 10 years before, but the ignorance of the reviewers who took the film at face value demonstrated that the truth behind Truth was as obscure as ancient Greek history.

When President Trump refers to fake news, he has in mind something like the cast of characters and the insane bias that brought us Rathergate.

NEWJERSEY: New Jersey Fails To Strike Down Hair-Braiding Licensing Requirements

Perhaps, Nzali’s stance continues to be ignored or downplayed because of the stronger, much more powerful beauty lobby. But while regulators claim that the field must be under scrutiny because of the chemicals used in their products, African hair-braiding is also called natural braiding precisely because they use no chemicals.In addition, economists explain that even if there is a legitimate risk, the market is better at regulating than the government.Associate professor of economics at Saint Francis University Edward Timmons thinks that especially when it comes to hair braiding, the market has the best solution for both customers and entrepreneurs.

TINFOILHAT: … “no matter how many times” the politicians and bureaucrats fool us, “we” still listen!

Everything Is A Hoax
PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS • OCTOBER 5, 2018 • 1,400 WORDS

*** begin quote ***

An Israeli expert on terrorism and covert assassination procedures explains that the alleged Russian GRU attack on the Skripals with a supposedly deadly nerve agent is a completely obvious hoax to anyone who knows anything at all. https://russia-insider.com/en/skripals-are-mi6-hoax-not-worthy-ladies-detective-novels-israeli-expert-demolishes-uk-case/ri24912

The official story, says the expert, is “stupidity on stupidity.”

I agree with him.

The question is: Why did the British government think that they could get away with such an obvious hoax? The answer is that the people in Western countries don’t know anything about anything. They live in a world in which their reality is a product of the propaganda fed to them by “news organizations” and Hollywood movies. They only receive controlled explanations. Therefore, they know nothing about how anything really functions. Read the account by the Israeli expert to understand the vast difference between the British government’s hoax and the reality of how an assassination is conducted.

*** and ***

Today polls indicate that a majority of people do not believe the official 9/11 propaganda any more than they believe the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the alleged Gulf of Tonkin attack, or the report from Admiral McCain (father of John) erasing Israel’s responsibility for the destruction of the USS Liberty and its crew during LBJ’s administration, or that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, or Iran had nukes, or the many lies about about Syria, Libya’s Gaddafi, or Somalia, or Yemen, or the “Russian invasion of Georgia,” the “Russian invasion of Ukraine.” But at each time the idiot population, no matter how many times they had learned that the governments lied to them initially believed the next lie, thereby permitting the lie to become fact. Thus, the idiot Western populations created their own world of controlled explanations.

Interesting that the D’s in their attempt to play politics by delaying the introduction of Ms. Ford’s allegation, in order to delay the confirmation until after the midterm elections, may have assured Kavanaugh’s confirmation.  The smell of “politics” tainted the process from the start.  In addition to Ms. Ford’s social media being “sanitized” and her “tear stained” testimony belied what may have been a legitimate concern. Minus these actions and given enough time for the unlikeable Kavanaugh story of “choir boy” character and his “nasty side” coming out with the Committee, the whole matter would have exploded in the public’s mind to generate a real groundswell of opposition.

Instead the D’s “smelled up the joint” so the reality didn’t come out.

As usual, when the politicians and bureaucrats try and “fix” something, it comes back to bite them.  (Like the R’s preventing another FDR, that resulting in Ike being a lame duck. Or the D’s wasting the legacy of FDR by not doing anything to really help minorities. And, on and on.)

TINFOILHAT: Lockerbie terror attack wasn’t WASN’T Libya

How the whole world was sold a monstrous lie over Lockerbie: Author claims it WASN’T Libya who bombed the 747 jumbo jet – and the prime suspect is alive and living in Washington

  • Iran’s former interiror minister authorised and finaced the hit, the US claimed 
  • Ahmed Jibril was founder and commander of Palestinian group that did bombing
  • Bomb maker Marwan Khreesat built the device hidden in radio-cassette player 
  • Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was senteced to life in 2001 but was released in 2009 

By DOUGLAS BOYD FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY

PUBLISHED: 17:11 EDT, 29 September 2018 | UPDATED: 20:34 EDT, 29 September 2018

*** begin quote ***

It is nothing short of a scandal.

There was, of course, a fall guy. Eleven years after the atrocity, a 47-year-old Libyan Arab Airlines security officer called Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted on a tissue of lies which centred on the evidence of a Maltese shopkeeper who claimed to remember him buying clothes similar to those that may have been in the suitcase with the bomb that would rip through the fuselage.

A low-level Libyan CIA ‘asset’ called Abdul Majid Giaka said he recalled seeing al-Megrahi collect a brown Samsonite suitcase from the Arrivals carousel in Malta’s Luqa airport on December 20, 1988. On the following morning, he alleged, the unaccompanied suitcase was loaded on to a flight to Frankfurt, from where it would be transferred to London on a Pan Am ‘feeder flight’ and loaded aboard Flight 103 – before then exploding.

A further 11 years later, al-Megrahi was sentenced to life imprisonment at an extraordinary trial held in a disused American air base near Utrecht, Holland.

After years investigating the Lockerbie disaster and its background, I have found that little of the evidence against him can be taken at face value. Instead, a very different story has emerged from the morass of lies, one that should have been apparent from the very start.

It is a story of incompetence, vengeance, political expediency and then a cover-up orchestrated from the very highest levels in London and in Washington – where the real bomber is said to live today, under the cover of an American witness protection scheme.
