Signs the Progressive 'you don't need to work' economy is on fire!

'Senate Democrats on Thursday offered a new plan to revive federal unemployment benefits until mid-November and pay the $18 billion price tag with new spending cuts, but hopes of a bipartisan deal dissolved into bickering by day's end."

A comprehensive report by the Senate Intelligence Committee definitely declared that individuals tied to Al Qaeda groups were involved in the Benghazi attack, challenging recent claims that the terror network was not a factor.

The report was released Monday, nearly one year after then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, under congressional questioning over the nature of the attack, shouted at lawmakers:ďWhat difference, at this point, does it make?Ē

The administration initially claimed the attack sprung out of a protest, but has since given a more complicated assessment. Still, administration officials all along have downplayed Al Qaeda involvement, recently seizing on a New York Times report that supported those claims.

While the report does not implicate Al Qaeda ďcoreĒ-- the leadership believed to be in the Pakistan region -- it does blame some of the most influential Al Qaeda branches, including Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

I didn't ask what you thought of Christie, you've implied you don't like him any more than Obama. The question is, why are you giving him a pass on this obvious conspiracy? It would seem to be in your best interest to discredit, or at least vet the leading Republican candidate that is the biggest threat to your teabagger boy. You're coming across are a one pony show, not the "Patriot" you beat your chest about.
I posted before that it would be impossible for Christie to be in the position he's in without knowing exactly what kind of shitbag political outfit he was part of, regardless of whether he had specific foreknowledge of this event.
Investigate the hell out of him. He's a goddam Democrat wearing a RINO costume and has proven he's a saboteur.

Sabotaging Diplomacy With Iran

....By itself, the House legislation does nothing except remind us once again how absurd the current House leadership is, but simply by pressing ahead with the legislation House leaders are giving Iran a ready-made excuse to become more intransigent or to pull out of negotiations all together. As James Fallows notes in his post on the Senate push for new sanctions, the excuse offered by hawkish Senate Democrats that they want to put the U.S. in a stronger bargaining position isnít the least bit credible, and the same applies to what House Republicans are trying to do with their bill.

When did you start looking for truth?

Let's find some.

Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he said he was born in Hawaii?

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the US in Benghazi?

How did CNN know what that lie would be before the Al Qaeda attack on the US in Benghazi began?

A Bad Day For Kirk-Menendez-Schumer

....These are but one dayís events over a long campaign. AIPAC may decide that trying to destroy the negotiations now through the Kirk-Menendez poison bill isnít going to work, and will let quietly slip that itís not putting out a full-fledged lobbying effort for the bill. Iím sure the group is uncomfortable with the level of attention itís drawing. I believe that never in its history has AIPAC seen five major newspapers oppose one its favored pieces of legislation.

And donít forget, negotiations are inherently difficult, and might fail anyway. Iranís President Rouhani has his own hard-liners entrenched in the Iranian parliament, who take it as axiomatic that any negotiation with the Great Satan is bad for Iran (as it probably is bad for their political fortunes in Iran). But right now Senate support for the bill seems stalled in the high fifties, short of veto-proof, and well short of the 70 signatures which an AIPAC staffer once boasted could be rounded up within 24 hours. Tuesday was a good day.

Bush never had these kinds of sanctions on Iran.
Bush put unilateral sanctions on Iran & Halliburton still worked there for several years.
Obama got a consensus of countries to agree on these sanctions to get Iran to the table. Something Bush never could do.
You forgot to mention Jeffry Immelt and GE, dupe. How about you educate us on how Jeffrey Imelt ignored the sanctions and provided material and support to Iran.

National Stupidity

In international politics, pride goeth before a fall.

....over time, and especially since the United States became a great power, American nationalism has also incorporated a dangerously inflated view of its own "exceptional" qualities. In particular, Americans (and especially foreign policy elites), often believe it is America's right and responsibility to exercise "world leadership," not simply because the United States is a very powerful country, but because it has the best form of government, the most virtuous citizens, and is always acting for the greater good -- even when it is blowing things up in some distant land or toppling some supposedly unfriendly government.

The negative consequences of this strand of American nationalism should be apparent by now. Because they believe the United States always acts for good, American leaders routinely underestimate the degree to which U.S. power worries other countries and leads them to try to take various steps to rein in Washington. Because they are convinced the American system of government is the best one ever devised, they overestimate their ability to export that system to other countries. Because the United States is a uniquely successful multicultural experiment, they do not recognize that local identities and sectarian differences are much harder to overcome in other places. And because they think Americans are smarter, more unified, more heroic, and just plain better than others, they have trouble imagining that a bunch of Vietnamese, Iraqis, or Afghans could possibly defeat us -- even when we're fighting on their home turf and in conditions where they are highly motivated and can almost certainly outlast us.

My point here is not to rail against nationalism per se, which isn't going to disappear anytime soon. It is rather to warn against the unthinking, uncritical, "my-country-right-or-wron g" version of nationalism that sometimes infects an entire society. When that happens, legitimate pride in one's own national group can easily morph into something darker, cruder, and far more dangerous. And when it does, it tends to make a country do stupid things. In international politics, as in the lives of individuals,(national) pride goeth before a fall.
