John Ashe R.I.P.

John Ashe, a diplomat from Antigua and Barbuda who served as president of the United Nations General Assembly from September 2013 to September 2014, died, June 22, while working out at his home in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.

He was 61. It’s kind of an under-reported story considering his international prominence and his obvious concern for  physical fitness.

Well, officials say he was working out. What other possible explanation could there be, though, for having one’s larynx crushed by a barbell, which is how he died?

Ashe had a recent career setback when he was charged with crimes related to taking bribes from Chinese businessman Ng Lap Seng, who has long been active in American politics especially in Arkansas.

Ashe was scheduled to meet with prosecutors regarding his upcoming trial. Think he might have been willing to testify about this or that to avoid prison?

None Dare Call Clinton Cash What?

None Dare Call Clinton Cash What?
Treason doth never prosper: what ’s the reason?

Since 2001, Bill and Hillary Clinton have earned at least $136.5 million with the money spiking for Bill’s speaking fees after Hillary became Obama’s Secretary of State.

The money came from foreign governments and business interests. This includes $2.35 million from Uranium One of which the state-owned Russian atomic agency, Rosatom now owns in its entirety.

Uranium One’s mines account for 20 percent of the uranium mined in the U.S.

The sale of Uranium One to the Russians was something that raised concerns among many. It went, through, anyway, apparently at Mrs. Clinton’s behest.

Revelations such as this are detailed in the book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer scheduled to hit the shelves May 5 but is already being discussed by media outlets that have obtained advanced copies.

The Clintons character didn’t magically change when Bill left office. One wonders how much safer and how much freer the world would have been if he had never entered.

Treason doth never prosper: what ’s the reason?
Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.

Obama Muslim Brotherhood Member?

It just keeps piling on for our President. First, a former commander of the Pacific Fleet has, for all intents, called him an Islamic mole and now it has been revealed that a major Egyptian newspaper has reported that he is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama Muslim Brotherhood Member?

For those unaware, the Brotherhood is a movement whose slogan is Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of Allah is our wish.

It took power in Egypt in 2012 with strong support from Obama before being overthrown in a popular revolution the next year.

The newspaper that made this claim on Aug. 30 is Al-Wafd and is the nation’s publication that is sympathetic to the Western ideal of liberty.

Whether Obama is an Islamic mole or member of the Muslim Brotherhood, it can’t be denied that he is an incompetent.  Ironically, this would be a good thing if he should actually be an Islamic mole. Still, let’s end our nation’s misery. Impeach him now. Biden 2015.

Anti-Vaxxer Not Here

By Bill Lawrence

To eliminate all confusion, I’ll spell it out that I’m not an anti-vaxxer. Anti-Vaxxer Not Here

I think vaccinations are a good thing. I have been vaccinated up the kazoo all my life. I’ve never worried about polio or smallpox or the whooping cough. If I cut myself on a rusty car part, I hope my tetanus shot is up to date.

Anti-vaxxers, mull this around: What’s preferable, a foreign substance entering your body via the broken end of a rusty muffler  or  via a sterile needle?

Just the same, if a family wants to live a vaccine-free lifestyle, I support and defend their right to do so. The catch is that I also support and defend the rights of organizations to require vaccinations to participate in them. In fact, I think public schools should require vaccinations. Certain businesses  such as medical facilities where contact with at-risk populations is to be expected should require vaccinations.

The way to make everybody happy is to provide alternatives to those who want independent lifestyles. Examples would be cyber-schools and subsidized homeschooling for anti-vaxxer families.

Regarding conspiracies, I live in Lyme disease ground zero. A while back, I asked my doctor for the since-discontinued vaccine. He talked me out of it saying he was only recommending it for those doing outdoor labor. In other words, the risk/benefit health issues was being taken seriously by the professionals. There was no push to get me to take this substance. There is no conspiracy.

Tyler Vigen Correlation Charts Margarine Consumption Maine Divorce

It has been discovered that there is almost a perfect correlation (.992558) of per capita consumption of margarine in the United States with the divorce rate in Maine.

And did you know that the correlation between the number of people who died by becoming tangled in their bedsheets with revenue generated by American skiing facilities is .969?

Pretty spooky.

And let us not even try to consider the strange connection between swimming-pool drowning deaths and Nicolas Cage movies.

Kudos to Tyler Vigen  for the noble effort to show that correlation does not equal causation.

North Korea Not Behind Sony Hack?

Sony Pictures computer network was the subject of a massive security breach on Nov. 24 and reams of embarrassing documents were leaked to the public.

Something calling itself the Guardians of Peace using the ironic acronym GOP took credit on Dec. 9 and demanded  that the studio cancel the Seth Rogan comedy “The Interview” that was scheduled to be released Christmas Day.

The film features the killing of North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong-un. North Korea, while praising the hacking, denied responsibility.

On Dec. 11, the GOP released hacked data describing Sony projects aimed at stifling piracy of its products. On Dec. 13, it released data exposing investigations that Sony was bribing Chinese officials.

On Dec. 16, the GOP sent out a notice implying there will be terrorist attacks at theaters showing the movie.

Sony pulls the film on Dec. 17 and announces that  it has  “no further release plans for the film.” President Obama  makes a televised statement  that night saying that Sony shouldn’t have done it and should have checked with him.

Sony CEO Michael Lynton — a one-percenter and a personal friend and major supporter of Obama — responds to the President on Dec. 19 saying  “I did reach out. We definitely spoke to a senior advisor in the White House to talk about the situation. The White House was certainly aware of the situation.” He also says the studio plans to get the movie to the public.

Also, on Dec. 19, the FBI makes it official that North Korea was behind the hacking. It had been leaked to the media two days earlier that North Korea was suspected.

On Christmas Eve, Sony makes “The Interview” accessible on streaming services and gives it a limited theatrical release the next day.

It gets mediocre reviews.

And that gets us to today. Computer security experts are  saying the evidence as to who is the cause for all the fuss now indicates a disgruntled employee working with hackers for piracy groups. They are wondering why the FBI was so quick to release a statement pinning the actions on North Korea.

“When the FBI made the announcement so soon after the initial hack was unveiled, everyone in the [cyber] intelligence community kind of raised their eyebrows at it, because it’s really hard to pin this on anyone within days of the attack,” said Kurt Stammberger of Norse.

Errata Security‘s Robert Graham goes so far as to call the FBI evidence “nonsense.”

The Taia Global security firm, says a linguistic analysis of the hacker’s messages indicates Russian speakers rather than Korean.

For the record, the FBI is sticking to its North Korea claim. But the quickness of its conclusion and the doubts of non-government experts do make one go hmmmm.

For what it’s worth, our favorite conspiracy theory is that Obama is doing this as payback to Lynton to help him pump up an otherwise forgettable film.

Regardless he should be impeached. Even Biden would do a better job and that’s saying a lot.

Fake Cellphone Towers, What’s Up With That?

The ultra-secure CryptoPhone 500 came on the market  not that long ago courtesy of ESD America and one of its features is an ability to find things that are not part of the standard cellphone network.

And one of the things it found was  17 fake cellphone towers spread around the country, according to Popular Science.

EDS CEO Les Goldsmith described these towers as “interceptors” which look just like regular cellphone tower but are not part of the official communication network. He said they  allow eavesdropping on calls and text along with pushing spyware to the device.

He said a lot of them were close to military bases. He expressed a concern that perhaps they were not placed by our government but a foreign one such as China something that would be frankly hard to believe possible but for the JV squad now in running our nation’s security.

Note that the 17 were the only ones found.

Gamechanger Shows Media Corruption

A private Google group called Gamechanger Salon set up by leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt has more than  1,000 members reports

The members included a CNN contributor, two a U.S. News & World Report columnist and a producer for Al Jazeera American television.

The group’s existence was discovered by Media Trackers through an open records request filed with a University of Wisconsin professor who happened to be a member of the network.

What is discussed on the board is how to advance socialism through the media outlets entrusted to them.

It is proof positive of widespread dishonesty in the establishment media and that only a fool would trust it.

Aeroflot AFL2074 Target Not MH17?

Michael Ledeen — a former consultant to the United States National Security Council, the United States Department of State, and the United States Department of Defense — has written at that a theory has been seriously broached that the real target of  the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels who shot down  Malaysian Airlines Flight 17  was  Aeroflot airline AFL2074 that was filled with Russian passengers.

He said the idea was cooked up by Vladimir Putin for use as a pretext for the invasion of the Ukraine.

Pennsylvania Seed Library Smacked Down By State

The Cumberland County Library System thought it had a neat idea. With the local Penn State Agricultural Extension System and the Cumberland County Commission for Women, it created a seed-gardening program — aka a seed library — that allowed residents to “borrow” seeds in the spring and replace them with new ones harvested at season’s end.

It was launched on April 26, Earth Day, at the Joseph T. Simpson’ Public Library in Mechanicsburg as part of the borough’s Earth Day Festival.

Sixty signed up.

Oh pity them for they didn’t realize they were part of a nefarious plot to violate  the Pennsylvania Seed Act of 2004 signed into law by then Gov. Ed Rendell.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture sent a high-ranking official and a bevy of lawyers to the library in July to shut the program down and make sure those running things got their minds right.

The Seed Act is about proper labeling in the sale of seeds, which the library was not doing. Apparently our state officials feared the seeds might be mislabeled on purpose hence allowing terrorists to spread poison ivy or some such thing.

Some cynics think the crackdown is because big agriculture doesn’t want competition no matter how small.

When is it going to dawn on the rest of you that really stupid and/or greedy people are governing our lives?
