We return you now to our irregularly scheduled blogging...

The "fog of war" has an ugly clone: the fog of media. Maybe it's a good thing. Just as you know you have won the point on principle when your opponent can only launch ad homonyms, it's a guarantee something rotten is being hidden when the gaggle of mainstream media go with "stories" like this. Looks as if they've run out of bodies to throw under the bus. Or maybe they ran out of buses...
It's obvious the Administration, from White House to State to Defense, is stonewalling, parsing, obfuscating, innuendo, dodging and every other SOP to prevent the facts from coming being presented in any logical, cogent manner -- and the media is complicit; they couldn't care less. They successfully kept it from growing the strong legs it properly deserved.  The bodies under the bus have become the focus rather than the bodies of the 4 betrayed dead Americans in Benghazi.
Maybe the idea is to get us more concerned about the bus...

But credit FOX News for staying on top of the latest developments - including the debunking of the "careful CIA narrative" above.

  1. One would would hardly expecting anything else out of an incumbent Administration on the eve of re-election than what we've gotten. Unfortunately as you've pointed out, what was once the 'watchdog of government' has now become the 'lap dog of government'. Far more concerned about promoting an editorial agenda than reporting the facts, most of these minions and Myrmidons are all but incapable of reporting a straight news story any longer.

    They should beware! The fall that has occurred (and continues) to the newspaper industry waits just around the corner for cable news networks whose 'personality shows' have become little more than opportunities for they and their stable of pundits to profit through promotion of their own books and websites. These feeble attempts at 'cults of personality' can fall as quickly as those on the political side, and mostly for the same reason: their failed attempts to keep their jobs while not doing their jobs.

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 


An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.


We have only one choice to save America and th…

A Doctor - Patient conversation

A  Doctor is explaining the pandemic to a coma patient who just woke up…

Dr: “They shut down the world because of a worldwide pandemic.”
Patient: “OMG! How many people are infected?”
Dr : “About 11 Million.”
Patient: “OMG! 11 million people died?”
Dr: “No, only 500 thousand… Kind of.”
Patient: “What do you mean ‘kind of’?”
Dr: “Well… they keep halving the number of deaths due to double counting, inaccurate tests and mislabeled death certificates. Also, most of the people that die are elderly and dying of other things. There are also people who died because of incorrect ventilator use and other treatments because no-one really understands the virus.”
Patient: “I don’t get it. So how many died from ONLY the virus… like literally dropped dead in the street?”
Dr: “No-one. Only in hospitals and nursing homes”
Patient: “I don’t get it.”
Dr: “Neither do I, it’s a very confusing time.”
Patient: “So they cured the other 11 million people then?”
Dr: “No, most didn’t have any symptoms and in fa…

Gillette, Toxic Masculinity and the F Word

The Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" commercial not-so-subtle lecturing men (their primary clientele) about being Kinder, Gentler Wussies the company says they should be is rapidly fading into the dust of Catholics and Indians, yesterday's news. But before the Forgettable is actually forgotten, here are a couple hardly-mentioned observations about why this TV spot got its embarrassing 15 minutes of fame.
