For a Friday morning, lets start with the Anti-Defamation League

being full of crap. Appropriate, seeing as how they're so far up Obama's backside they have to have air piped in. What are these clowns going to do when they have to scream about real anti-government/anti-American activists? Who, to a large extent, also have no fondness for Jews.

Gee, the President and Pelosi and Reid lied about something in the socialized medicine bill? Damn!
President Barack Obama wants to cut spending on the federal insurance plan for the elderly to help fund his health-care overhaul. Part of that proposal would cut more than $100 billion from Medicare Advantage, through which the government hires private insurers such as Humana Inc. to deliver Medicare benefits to 11 million seniors, including extras like reduced co-payments and even gym memberships.

Should Congress scale back the program, “We’re not going to be able to say ‘if you like what you have, you can keep it,’” said Senator Bob Casey, a Pennsylvania Democrat. “And that basic commitment that a lot of us around here have made will be called into question.”
Uh, Sen. Casey, an awful lot of people were pointing out that the 'promise' was bullcrap for quite a while; you were just pretending it wasn't so. Or else you're too damn stupid to be sitting in that chair.

But wait! There's MORE!! slimy political bullcrap!
Senators Charles Schumer of New York, Bill Nelson of Florida and Ron Wyden of Oregon are among those who secured special provisions shielding constituents from cuts.

Casey says he wants “very comparable” protections for his state, where more than one-third of Medicare beneficiaries participate in Medicare Advantage. “It’s the kind of thing that will likely be addressed on the floor,” he said.
So, once again, we have slimy bastards like Schumer & Co. quite willing to rob the rest of the country, and screw the rest of the country, to protect themselves and the morons who put them in office. Wonderful, isn't it?

Also, the Health Panel changes its mind; and lies about what caused all the screaming.

Hmmm, the multiple-murderer also had slimy bastard friends and family. Amazing.

According to one airline security official, “This was a deliberate, well planned attempt to disrupt a domestic flight that was organized in advance of the boarding of these [Muslim] passengers. The purpose of their actions appeared to be multi-faceted, not the least of which was an attempt to change their status from passengers to victims of religious profiling. The situation was handled in a manner that we believe might have avoided an incident like USAir had in 2006, where everyone from the passengers who reported suspicious behavior to the airline was subjected to legal action by the Muslim passengers.”
And the Transportation Security Actors will NOT be investigating. Just friggin' wonderful.

Wheee, this is getting fun! Is Hansen the Climaquiddick leaker?
Although he might seem an unlikely suspect, in The Guardian today, he reveals his underlying motivation, telling the paper that it would be better for the planet and for future generations if next week's Copenhagen climate change summit ended in collapse.

Any agreement likely to emerge from the negotiations would be so deeply flawed that it would be better to start again from scratch, he says, adding: "I would rather it not happen if people accept that as being the right track because it's a disaster track ... The whole approach is so fundamentally wrong that it is better to reassess the situation."

So there we have it. This is a man with the motive and, from his elevated status in the "climate change community", he undoubtedly had the opportunity and the access.

By way of further confirmation that he dun it, it is highly suspicious that none of the emails released incriminate him or his Goddard Institute. And who else would have the knowledge to select such incriminating information from the mass of material that must be stored on the CRU computer?

And that's a good question he asks: if Hansen is it will Ma'am Boxer still want to prosecute him? And we should never allow a chance to whack on the Goreacle:
Berlingkse Media, a Danish group coordinating ticket sales and publicity for the event, said that "great annoyance" was a factor in the cancellation, along with unforeseen changes in Mr. Gore's program for the climate summit. The decision affected 3,000 ticket holders.

"We have had a clear-cut agreement, and it is unusual with great disappointment that we have to announce that Al Gore cancels. We had a huge expectation for the event. . . . We do not yet know the detailed reasons for the cancellation," said Lisbeth Knudsen, CEO of Berlingske Media, in a statement posted by the company
Um, maybe because he doesn't want to have to deal with actual questions about what his "We're all going to die if you don't buy carbon credits" activism/making money is based on?

Got something else to talk about, but it deserves a post all its own.

Firehand, have you seen this guy?

Looks like he's the source of lots of denialist cartoon goodies, and he's a gunny!
