THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL BEAUTY CONTEST

Ken Berwitz

As the attorneys say on TV - "He opened the door to this line of questioning". 

But the "he" who opened the door is none other than President Barack Obama....and the line of questioning is, which state has the best looking Attorney General?

Here, from pictures shown in Steven Hayward's blog at powerlineblog.com, are two contestants:

From the great state of California, we have...Kamala Harris!!

And from the neighboring, equally great state of Nevada, we have Catherine Cortez Masto!!

 

Ok, there they are.  You decide.  And if you're waiting for a bathing suit contest, forget about it.

But I promise, they are both strongly in favor of world peace.


THE GREEN SCANDAL (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz

Just in case you think the succession of so-called "green" companies - usually headed  by big-money donors to Barack Obama and/or Democrats in general - which take tons of taxpayer money and then go bye-bye, is finished....

...we have Fisker.

Excerpted from Matthew Mosk's article at ABC News:

As a major financial deadline looms, a green car company that was approved for a $529 million loan from the U.S. Energy Department is keeping quiet about whether it could be headed towards a Solyndra-like collapse, following reports the company may be preparing for bankruptcy.

"We are not offering any official comment on the speculation around bankruptcy at this stage," Roger Ormisher, a spokesperson for the electric car company Fisker Automotive, told ABC News recently.

The loan to Fisker was part of a $1 billion bet the Energy Department made in two politically-connected California-based electric carmakers producing sporty -- and pricey -- cutting-edge autos.

In October 2011, ABC News aired reports revealing that the government loan to Fisker raised concerns among industry observers and government auditors, and added to questions about the way billions of dollars in loans for smart cars and green energy companies were being awarded.

Both Fisker and Obama administration officials raced to defend Fisker, but at the same time acknowledged the inherent risk involved in such start-ups. The Energy Department said it had carefully vetted loan recipients to minimize taxpayer risk.

Then in May 2012, after providing nearly $200 million in loans, the Energy Department announced it had frozen payments to Fisker, saying it hired a restructuring advisor to study the terms of the agreement and assess the performance of the company.

In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that Fisker board members had discussed the prospect of filing for bankruptcy, citing unnamed sources. Company executives responded by saying they were seeking larger partners for the small automaker.

For weeks following, there were widespread reports of a possible deal involving Chinese automakers. But a major Chinese manufacturer said those talks had fallen through. Last week came word in a report by Reuters that Fisker Automotive had begun consulting with bankruptcy lawyers. That news came with less than a month before Fisker must make a significant payment on its U.S. Energy Department loan, which comes due April 22.

The US taxpayer is being told there is not enough money to conduct White House tours. 

But there is plenty for big, star-studded parties at the White House tourists cannot get to see, Presidential, and Vice Presidential vacations (more than one a month so far this year), and guaranteed loans for Democrat fatcats who then lose our, rather than their, money on failed "green" company after failed "green" company after failed "green" company.

FYI - the cost for one year of White House Tours is either $1 million or $4 million, depending on who is doing the estimating.  Assuming the higher cost, the $529 blown on Fisker would have funded those tours from now until 2143. 

What fools they think we are.  And, if we continue to buy their excuses and lies, how right they are to think it.

MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY ON "KIDS"

Ken Berwitz

Suppose you run a cable news network....say, MSNBC.  And you have decided to promote your network by doing :30 spots consisting of individual show hosts telling us what is on their minds.  You'd certainly use what you consider to be the best of what they have to say in those spots, wouldn't you?

This brings us to MSNBC show host Melissa Harris-Perry - that nice lady who refers to unborn children not as children or fetuses but as "things". 

Here is a transcript of the :30 to promote her show, which is currently running on MSNBC (click here for video) :

"We have never invested as much in public education as we should have, because we've always had kind of a private notion of children.  Your kid is yours, and totally your responsibility.  We haven't had a very collective notion of these are our children.  So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.  Once it's everbody's responsibility and not just the household's, then we start making better investments"

What a great concept!

According to Melissa Harris-Perry, intoned in her sing-song "oh, everyone knows this" tone of voice, your "thing"...er, excuse me, this time it's your "kid"...is not your own.  It is everyone's.  If your child is taught to be responsible, do well in school, and winds up successful, that is the community's doing, not yours.  If someone else's child is taught no such thing and winds up in the street as a gangbanger, that is every bit as much your fault as it is that child's parents.  Individual families?  Just a figment of your imagination.

Everyone, collectively, is responsible for each child - biological parents no more so than the people down the block, across the street or on the other side of town you never met, don't know a thing about, and might not want anything to do with. 

If you spend the time and money to raise your child as well as possible, congratulate every other parent for it because you deserve no credit.  If someone else's parents do neither, find the time and get your wallet out because it is your fault as much as theirs.

Somewhere in the ectoplasm, Marx and Engels must be shaking hands with each other over that one.

This is the quality of "intellect" they like to feature on MSNBC.  Are you impressed?

One last point:  Melissa Harris-Perry, via her first husband, has a daughter.  Do you think she handed that daughter over to "the community" to raise?  If so, I have a signed copy of Milli Vanilli's greatest hits to sell you.
