Over the years, I have written a lot of negative material about pat buchanan. 

In case you're wondering why, here is the latest reason - as excerpted from Jeff Poor's piece for

In an interview on Russia Today with Gayane Chichakyan on Tuesday, former MSNBC contributor Pat Buchanan warned that some people in positions of power in Israel and the United States that would like to see the U.S. engaged in a war with Iran over its potential to build a nuclear weapon.

There are people that want a war, he said. I mean, do not think no one wants a war. You dont have wars unless someone wants it. And quite clearly the Israeli government would like to see the United States smash Irans nuclear program, which they think is creating the additions where Iran could, with one leap forward, get a bomb.

The Israeli lobby would like to see a war. They support the Israeli government. Neoconservatives do. Many Republicans do. There are many Americans who genuinely believe that if Iran they believe Iran is moving toward a weapon; and if it is, they would favor military action to prevent it. There are a number of people who want a war.

Brilliant, pat.  Israel wants a war.  Thanks for the insight. 

If Israel "wants" a war with Iran, might it have a little something to do with the fact that:

-Iran has announced to the world that it intends to"wipe Israel off the map" - in those exact words and in other words at other times as well;

-Its illegitimately "elected" government is feverishly creating the nuclear weaponry to do so;

-Just last week, Iran's warships were sent up the Suez Canal and, the government claims, were docked in Syria....which, if true, means they had to have passed within striking range of Israel's entire Mediterranean border.

Claiming that Israel "wants" a war under these circumstances is equivalent to claiming that France wanted a war after hitler and his nazi cohorts decided it would be nice to invade and install a government there. 

That is not wanting a war, that is facing a war.

Admittedly, however, Israel probably prefers that the similarity between itself and France end right there - given that the mighty French fighting machine collapsed like a $2.99 umbrella in a typhoon, and surrendered in 6 weeks. 

By contrast, Israel is not quite as inclined to give up -- not to people who want the country vaporized and every Jew there (and elsewhere) dead.  

If buchanan wants to classify the situation Israel faces as some kind of proactive warmongering on its part, he is welcome to his hate-filled fantasy.  But that won't make him correct.

Years ago, a joke was going around that people should pity pat buchanan because he lost an uncle in the holocaust.......he tripped and fell out of his guard tower.

As you  can see, the joke still works.....

The word "devastating is among the most overused in the english language.  But not this time. 

Michelle Malkin has written a column filled with what appears to be malfeasance on the part of President Obama's Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, that is so egregious that, if anything, "devastating" understates it.

I will give you a few excerpts below, but you really have to read the entire piece to appreciate just how dishonestly Salazar appears to be performing his duties - apparently without any problem from his boss at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.\:

Its not just big-ticket scandals like the stimulus-subsidized Solyndra bankruptcy or the Keystone pipeline debacle bedeviling America. In every corner of the Obama administration, the radical green machinery is hard at work destroying jobs, shredding truth and sacrificing our economic well-being at the altar of environmentalism.

Take Obamas head of the National Park Service, please. While serving as the Pacific West regional director of the NPS, Jon Jarvis was accused of at least 21 instances of scientific misconduct (pdf) by Dr. Corey Goodman, a high-ranking member of the National Academy of Sciences. Extensive information about Jarvis alleged role in cooking data about a California oyster farms impact on harbor seals at Point Reyes was withheld during the 2009 nomination process. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has ignored complaints and follow-up from both Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Sens. James Inhofe and David Vitter.

Given Salazars own role in manipulating science while building his case for the White House offshore drilling moratorium actions for which several federal judges spanked Salazar in the past two years its no wonder hes looking the other way. Remember: Two years ago, Salazar and former Obama eco-czar Carol Browner falsely rewrote the White House drilling ban report to wholly manipulate the Obama-appointed panels own overwhelming scientific objections to the job-killing edict.

Water wars and the Delta smelt. The infamous, endangered three-inch fish and its environmental protectors continue to jeopardize the water supply of more than 25 million Californians. Federal restrictions have cut off some 81 billion gallons of water to farmers and consumers in Central and Southern California.

While Salazar manufactures a new biological opinion on the matter to get the courts off his back, unemployment and drought plague the Central Valley. And the White House stands by its scientists.

Dams in distress. In Siskiyou County, Ore., local officials and residents announced last week that it intends to sue Salazar and Team Obama over their potential removal of dams on the Klamath River. Once again, the administrations systematic disregard for sound science and the rule of law is in the spotlight.

GOP Rep. Tom McClintock put it most charitably: To tear down four perfectly good hydroelectric dams at enormous cost is insane.

I call this envirofraud.  If you can come up with a better description, please let me know. 

But regardless of the descriptive word, this administration seems to be in a fight to the finish with itself, over whether it operates more ineptly or more corruptly.  The bad news for us is that the two are in a virtual tie.

How I wish behavior like Secretary Salazar's was the exception rather than the rule.......

Zeke ..... ..... just suppose ....... these persecuted companies and individuals fight back and file lawsuits against the Czarist oppression. ..... ..... and, that in November the country votes to send President Obama back to Chicago ---- and ALL these lawsuits are dropped when the new President is sworn in 2 months later. ..... ..... But why do we call them Czars ? .... Wouldn't "Comrade Commissar" be more accurate ? ..... .... ..... (02/22/12)
