More psychopathic lying from the Left

Very similar to Bill's psychopathic (foolish and easily falsifiable) lies about her being named after Sir Edmund Hillary. And what a contrast with "straight talk" McCain!

Bosnia-gate is bad for Clinton. It goes to the heart of the issue around her and her husband: their stunning ability to stare you in the eye and lie. In her own foreign policy speech last week in Washington, Clinton repeated claims she has been making for months: that a trip to Bosnia was made under death-defying circumstances.

"I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base." The story had already been discredited when US comedian Sinbad, who was also on the trip along with Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, told The Washington Post earlier this month that the only thing scary about the trip was he did not know where he would next get something to eat.

In a press conference after the speech, Clinton was asked about the Sinbad comments and dismissed him as simply a comedian. "We were told to run to our cars. That is what happened." She was clear-eyed and emphatic. Then Togo West, a former army secretary in the Clinton administration who was on the trip, stepped to the microphone and confirmed the story, saying the first lady was told to "run, duck, this is a hotspot and this is serious".

But CBS's footage of the event is damning. Clinton's casual stroll from the helicopter with her daughter to be greeted by an eight-year-old girl is now the stuff of legend on YouTube, clocking up one million views. A bunch of satirical films have emerged too. It is Clinton's descriptions of that day that are simply a breathtaking falsehood.

For what purpose? She knew there was television footage of the event - she was the first lady and had a travelling media contingent. It was simply a matter of time before production staff checked archives. It will not play well. Not with voters and not with super delegates.

I have been debunking some amazing crap on my FOOD & HEALTH SKEPTIC blog lately.

Al Qaeda losing its base? "There really is a broad rethink sweeping the Muslim world about the practical utility -- and moral defensibility -- of terrorism, particularly since al Qaeda began targeting fellow Sunni Muslims, as it did with the 2005 suicide bombings of three hotels in Amman, Jordan. Al Qaeda knows this. Osama bin Laden is no longer quite the folk hero he was in 2001. Reports of al Qaeda's torture chambers in Iraq have also percolated through Arab consciousness, replacing, to some extent, the images of Abu Ghraib. Even among Saudis, a recent survey by Terror Free Tomorrow finds that "less than one in ten Saudis have a favorable opinion of Al Qaeda, and 88 percent approve the Saudi military and police pursuing Al Qaeda fighters." No less significant is that the rejection of al Qaeda is not a liberal phenomenon, in the sense that it represents a more tolerant mindset or a better opinion of the U.S. On the contrary, this is a revolt of the elders, whether among the tribal chiefs of Anbar province or Islamist godfathers like Sayyed Imam. It would be a delightful irony if militant Islam were ultimately undone by a conservative, Thermidor-style reaction."

An Unlikely Refuge: Muslims Fleeing Darfur Rebuilding Lives in Israel: "Even though we're Muslim, the Islamic world has done nothing to protect us," said Yassin, one of the first Darfurians to make it into Israel across the border from Egypt and now director of Bnei Darfur [Sons of Darfur], which assists Sudanese refugees to integrate into Israeli society. "All of the Arab countries support the government of Sudan - our problem is with the Arab League," he said. As far as Yassin is concerned, Israel has provided for his people in a way that no Arab country would - and for that he's eternally grateful.

A problem for the Democrats: "We're not French. Americans want to succeed, not just get by. They don't dream about a better safety net. They dream about getting ahead. If Democrats default to a traditional recipe of expanding the safety net -- and that is all they offer -- they will hit the brick wall of public antipathy toward "big government." In a February 2007 poll conducted by Democracy Corps, 57% of Americans agreed that "government makes it harder for people to get ahead in life," and 54% thought that "government mostly gets in the way of the economy and job growth." While people not hurt by recessions are open to helping those who are, Democrats cannot assume that economic recessions automatically translate into broad public support for major government interventions."

Gallup says: "A sizable proportion of Democrats would vote for John McCain next November if he is matched against the candidate they do not support for the Democratic nomination. This is particularly true for Hillary Clinton supporters, more than a quarter of whom currently say they would vote for McCain if Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee."

Michelle Obama on how ignornant Americans are: ""We don't like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables- you all living in different dorms. I was there. You're not talking to eachother, taking advantage that you're in this diverse community. Because sometimes it's easier to hold on to your own stereotypes and misconceptions. It makes you feel justified in your own ignorance... That's America. So the challenge for us is are we ready for change?" [Can anyone imagine this bitch as a First Lady?]

Bush saved Social Security: "At long last the damage from the disastrous Clinton administration has been cleaned up by President George Walker Bush. He has returned Social Security to the solvency it had when his daddy left the White House in 1993. Don't go by my word alone. Paul Krugman of the New York Times blogged: "The latest report of the Social Security Trustees is out. I think the key message is what has happened to the estimate of actuarial balance - the difference between projected outlays and projected revenues over the next 75 years." Krugman downplays the miracle that just happened. But of course. But if we are going to blame every problem on Bush, then every success is his as well."

Evil Minds Cooked This Up: "Palestinian children gathered for an exhibition that depicts Israel burning children in a crematorium. Young children are seen standing beside dolls being placed into a model of a cremation oven. According to the article in Al Ayyam (March 20, 2008), "The National Committee for defense of Children from the Holocaust opened its activities with a Holocaust exhibit. The Exhibit include a large oven and inside it small children are being burned, the picture speaks for itself."

"Why should the German be interested in the liberation of the Jew, if the Jew is not interested in the liberation of the German?... We recognize in Judaism, therefore, a general anti-social element of the present time... In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism.... Indeed, in North America, the practical domination of Judaism over the Christian world has achieved as its unambiguous and normal expression that the preaching of the Gospel itself and the Christian ministry have become articles of trade... Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist". Who said that? Hitler? No. It was Karl Marx. See also here and here and here.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialist) and the full name of Hitler's political party (translated) was "The National Socialist German Workers' Party" (In German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei)
