Destroying lives for cash and political power

By Jeff Koopersmith

It seems to me that almost the whole enchilada presented by Fox News is deceptive from the people who man most of its on-air spots, presenters, too dumb to be believable guest commentators.

I was sad to see Ed Henry, Fox White House lead –and always hesitant to agree openly with the nuts at the Fox Studios in New York – has seemingly given up now and must have been told to dedicate himself to destroying Barack Obama.

The Fox News cable network, viewed, in fact by almost nobody save for rare occasions (at most 8% of television news viewers) is now pulling out all the stops to make certain that the next few weeks brings with them a rasher of new non-scandals that are “direct, indirect, or tertiary” not only linked to the White House but to the President himself.

The latest fairytale and biblical travesty is round about nonsense about a young man who volunteered to do advance work for the White House. These are folks – largely unpaid – who perform the hundreds of smaller and mostly non-security-related tasks that help White House staff move the President or his family to different locations – whether around the block, or across the globe.

As you may know, the President, years ago traveled to Columbia where it appears that several male Secret Service agents frolicked at strip clubs and with prostitutes in Cartagena.

This week the idiots, though amusing idiots, on Fox early morning programming – and then throughout the ensuing days – put a young man, not with the secret service – but insinuated by Fox as a White House staffer – is alleged to have brought a working girl to his hotel room on that trip although the President was not in residence at that hotel, nor in the country at the time.

#OMGWHITEHOUSE!

Of all the nauseous audacity – grown men who are television personalities – not usually honored by the most moral behavior themselves, sit around on a cheaply staged Fox sets giggling about the White House’s immorality. It’s almost unbearable to imagine
.
Worse, the Washington Post – very tightly tied to the CIA and other intelligence agencies in its younger days was the newspaper of record that introduced this ludicrous yellow story about a twenty-something law student written by David Nakamura who should know that his “investigatory EXCLUSIVE” was nothing more than a nice Gimme to evangelizing Republicans now attempting to destroy the Senate by electing a GOP majority that would certainly gridlock the entire national legislative effort – as if there was one.

The Post has, since Nakamura’s exclusive has moved back a bit from its story mounting a confused op-ed wondering about the hilarity that other news and comic sources are viewing this “scandal” and parenthetically to my mind, apologizing for it while trying also to keep ties with the women’s movement who is worried over child trafficking as they should be.

The young man involved suffers for something that untold millions of men and women and gays have done at his age without making international news. Of course, not happy with simply ruining the life of the kid, Fox adds that his father is a “big” contributor to Barack Obama. Now they both have had to hire an attorney.
The man’s reputation has become a water cooler snigger and all for what?

This fellow was not there to protect the President. He was a young man and we all know about young men and even older ones – just look up the Republican elected officials caught with THEIR pants down, not to mention what must go on in Mr. Murdoch’s disgraceful company here in America and aged Roger Ailes own troubles surrounding his alleged urgings for oral sex from employees.

Do you remember a time when private liaisons between men and women were not discussed openly because of their obvious “its human nature qualities”?

Well just like with Stalin and Hitler – some people’s human frailties are fodder for a new kind of unearned reputational murder, but murder just the same.

Where are the women’s groups re Fox News’ Eric Bolling of “The Five” that airs at 5 PM from New York – while the kids are eating. Bolling called a woman pilot fighting on our side in Iraq – “Boobs on the Ground” and has paid no price for it?

Or was it just a silly aside?

(The front page illustration here is how we must assume Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly and particularly Eric Bolling who called a woman pilot fighting on our side in Iraq – “Boobs on the Ground” and has paid no price for it.)

What’s Up With Leon Panetta?

gone and forgotten
Leon Panetta – Gone & Forgotten

 

NEW YORK – Am I mindless, or are we witnessing Leon Panetta becoming a 76 year old California hobgoblin running around peddling his book anyplace and anytime including an appearance on – of all programs – the Bill O’Reilly Factor- Fox News’ lowliest crowd pleasing “circus” while mauling the reputation of the very same President of the United States that put Panetta in command of the Central Intelligence Agency and later crowned him Secretary of Defense?

I collect these quotes Panetta is now creating – in context and out – but all of them seem bizarrely contemptible as he paints Barack Obama as a kind of geeky wimp who prefers to ignore the advice of people around him. I am familiar with that gaggle, and must say I might ignore them as well.

For now, I am expectant that Panetta will appear on added news and interview programs that are not controlled by that judder Roger Ailes. Nonetheless while I continue to watch Panetta’s careless beach boardwalk performance I suggest that readers with minds take a look at Charlie Rose’s CBS interview with our American Treasure Leon Panetta. Rose, a gentleman, not-so-pointedly probed him:

There are those who say, you know, he appointed you to two of the highest positions that this country has to offer, just wait until he’s out of office before criticizing.”

Kudos to Charlie Rose for asking a most important question but allowing what I might characterize as a person-of-interest, but guilt-ridden perp, answer.

Panetta responded to that and other Rose questions thus:
The last two years, I think what happened was he looked at a country that was frustrated, exhausted by over ten years of war, and he wanted to turn a corner. He wanted to be able to get away from Iraq, get away from Afghanistan, and begin to refocus on this country, but also, hopefully, to get other countries to step up to the plate to deal with it. What we’ve learned by recent events is that if the United States isn’t providing that leadership, nobody else will*.

Here’s what I think. President Obama took President Eisenhower’s warning about the warfare zealots that have been with and around us for centuries. President Obama did not see – thus far – any need for the “Boots on the Ground” hue and cry of old men like Ailes and the on-air curiosities that work for him, or the freaks that man his “brain trust”.

You see, some people – even Presidents – especially those who value lives – are not anxious to send American boys, girls, women, and men to be killed blood-spattered in some filthy desert because several potentates in the region want to maintain their thrones and several American arms dealers, oil barons and military uniform hawkers quietly but effectively cheer them all on.

Panetta, himself a former Lieutenant in Army Intelligence, should know better. He may not have been on the front lines – but he must have witnessed the personal costs of warfare in his time.
Panetta ought also to practice “Loyalty and faithfulness”.

He reminds one of the type that walked out on Bill Clinton during his most gruesome trials only to save their own necks, or enrich themselves as did the miniature rapscallion, George Stephanopoulos.

So, here is my tentative conclusion. Panetta may be a stalking horse for Hillary Clinton’s presidential run. If so, then is seems evident that the President may have decided not support her presidential candidacy. If I am wrong, then Panetta is simply a greedy man seeking to leave a fatter legacy.

I can only hope that Hillary Clinton or Bill did not put Panetta up to this – because I, for one, was counting on helping her break that last glass ceiling before I take my leave.

More later – but keep this in mind. Bill O’Reilly in just an aged Long Island boy like I am. He has no particular skill except to sell himself to the highest bidder while he cover’s his behind by saying first yes and following it with no. Panetta has a shared background – he was just a smart kid from a good working-class family too.

Bill O’Reilly to my mind is most untrustworthy, yet I am pained that he did not see the Panetta pretense inasmuch as a poser can always spot an associate sham.

Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds freaked out when he read an excerpt from Lena Dunham’s new book, Not That Kind of Girl. Unfortunately for Reynolds, the quote was from Thorstein Veblen’s The Theory of the Leisure Class, written in 1899.

EBOLA: It’s not really a cleaning product!

EBOLA: It’s not really a cleaning product!

By Jeff Koopersmith

It appears that many Americans, especially those living in Texas and other southern-type states think that EBOLA is a gritty cleanser – sort of like the contents of an old AJAX can your grandma used on her pots and pans to eventually destroy them.

Here’s a clue:  EBOLA is a virus    >     ebola virus

It is transmitted by touching spew from animals and humans that have EBOLA and have had it long enough to spew from any hole, valve, or aperture in their bodies  – almost on a continual basis So, you might also recognize an EBOLA carrier (transmitter) if they are bleeding from the tear ducts (teer not tare) or from their armpits.

EBOLA is not the “foaming cleanser” nor is it “the scrubbing cleanser” as you might hear in the Ajax ditty on radio and television.

Speaking of Texas:  Many Texans think EBOLA is an electronic Bola (tie) as you would put around your neck to look authentically Texan – or just pain stupid.  No true Texans wear Bolas these days unless they are either at a hoedown, a barn raising, a roundup, or a square dance.

However many continue to think they can wear their solid gold IPhones around their necks displaying a BOLA on the non-scratch (sometimes) IScreen.  This then, would be an EBOLA – or E-Bola, which is fact should be a E-Bolo, I believe, yet many Texans rarely carefully pronounce hanging “O’s” after a soft consonant so that they sound like “Ah’s” – Ergo, or Erga, Bola Ties or Bolo ties are just fine.

Listen… pronouncing the deadly virus as E-BOLO is considered highly politically incorrect. The speaker is almost deriding the victims here.  It’s a “no-no” as Texas mamas say to their horses.

Remember that, Rick Perry – it’s best to wear the real thing.

Today’s Corrected The Hill Headline

As a public service, from time to time APJ will take the liberty of rectifying other publications’ headlines when, for example, it appears that they are trying to protect readers who are certtfied members of the completely clueless Village Beltway or true “red state” believers.

Here, then, is today’s amended headline for an article from today’s edition of that essential Beltway insider organ, The Hill:

The Hill logoTea Party Revolt May Rescue Kansas from the GOP“.

You’re welcome.

In Case You Missed It…

koch-bros-rolling-stoneKoch Industries is not entirely opaque. The company’s troubled legal history – including a trail of congressional investigations, Department of Justice consent decrees, civil lawsuits and felony convictions – augmented by internal company documents, leaked State Department cables, Freedom of Information disclosures and company whistle­-blowers, combine to cast an unwelcome spotlight on the toxic empire whose profits finance the modern GOP. …

You should go read Tim Dickinson’s superb exposé of the noxious Koch family over at Rolling Stone.

More Revealing Than Wikileaks?

Newsweek’s look at the notorious LiveLeak.com is well worth a read. There is a strong argument that it is doing a better job of informing the world on the truth about 21st century warfare than Wikileaks. |
One of the world’s most important media organizations doesn’t have an office. It doesn’t have interns, and none of its employees draw a living wage for their contributions. They’ve never once met in person and they never will. Its founders aren’t journalists by trade and by all accounts have no business running a news site. And… Continue reading More Revealing Than Wikileaks?

Politico: Assassination of Obama Would Solve Secret Service Problems

Yes. they actually went there:

Terrorist groups like ISIL would like nothing better than to assassinate Obama. Five terrorists could come into the White House with grenades and wipe him out. … Agents tell me it’s a miracle an assassination has not already occurred. Sadly, given Obama’s colossal lack of management judgment, that calamity may be the only catalyst that will reform the Secret Service.

“Reporter” Ron Kessler and an editor or two at Drudgico… ahem, Politico need to be fired. The Doc is not holding his breath over that possibility.
