Old Jarhead's Political SitRep for February 21, 2013

Old Jarhead's Political SitRep for February 21, 2013
Robert A. Hall

The Philosophy of the Old Jarhead Blog
The Old Jarhead SitRep is a blog of political news and conservative opinion, that has had about 700,000 page views since founded in 2008, is read in many counties (Iran? Indonesia? Russia? Go figure.) And was up to 30,000 page views a week recently. Plus I throw in some humor and human interest pieces that catch my attention for seasoning. I try to include foreign sources and info you won’t get in the MSM, but I often use links to pieces in the Washington Post, New York Times, Politico, Reuters and other liberal leaning sources. No one is required to read it, or any of the links. A majority of the pieces are sent to me by readers, for which I’m grateful, others come from newsfeeds I subscribe to. I get some from Twitter, but often don’t have time to look at my feeds there. I stop sending the link to people who become nasty or too angry. I used to forward political items, but was sending too many e-mails to my list, so a few years ago, I started collecting them on the blog to access in one place. I use maybe 50% of the conservative pieces sent me, probably less than 5% of the liberal opinion sent, usually to illustrate their views. Readers who don’t like that are welcome to start their own blogs. Blogs are free and so is speech in America right now, despite leftist efforts to outlaw “hate speech” they disagree with and Islamist efforts to outlaw criticism of Islam, while retaining the right to describe other religions in vile terms. I try to avoid items that will turn off thoughtful centrists and leftists or low-information independents, including “red meat” pieces with intemperate language or wild speculation, conspiracy theories with no supporting facts and silly distractions like the so-called “birther” issue (but I don’t always succeed). I predicted correctly four years ago the “birther” thing was going nowhere, was a huge waste of time and resources, and played into the hands of the left, much as the impeachment of Bill Clinton did in the 1990s. (I said so at the time.) I do sometimes include things I don’t agree with that I think readers might find of interest. Readers are requested to read all items critically and with skepticism—just like a newspaper! Readers who send formatted pieces (title, link, and a fair use excerpt of three sentences unless the piece is very short, than fewer) to tartanmarine(at) have a higher chance of my using them than people who just send a link. I often include thoughtful comments from contributors. (Tell me if you want you full name used.) A piece without a link has a much lower chance of being used—it depends on how interesting it is and how much time I have right then to search for it. I understand if you don’t have the time to format or even to find a link—please understand my time is pretty limited too. There are no ads on my blog, no fees and I receive no income from it. When I retire, that might need to change, but for now, that’s how it is. I do promote my books, with the royalties going to charity. Thanks for reading and contributing. ~Bob.

Book Recommendation. The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor. By Jake Tapper
I received "The Outpost" for Christmas and put it near the top of my reading pile. While it was long, it was not disappointing. Tapper gives an excellent, well-researched account of brave and good men put in a difficult, if not impossible situation by bad decisions--some going as high at theater command and the White House. Given the details and the outcomes, it is hard to disagree with his conclusions. Tapper is a journalist, with all the negative connotations of "agenda driven-propagandist" that today attach to that word, so I was pleased that he presented the story in a very straight-forward manner and had an obvious respect, perhaps affection, for the troops he was writing about. That sat well with this old Jarhead. It's been 30 years since I last wore the uniform, so I'm out of date, but as far as I could tell he got the military details and nomenclature right. (Though he reported one man promoted to "Private Second Class." I had never heard that term used for an Army E-2.) That the combat outpost that is the subject of the book was poorly sited should have been obvious to anyone, as it was to an Army E-4 involved in planning at the start of the book. The old infantry maxim is, "Take the high ground, or they will bury you in the valley." And "valley" hardly describes their situation. I spent August and a few days in September of 1967 with a Marine Combined Action Company heading a Radio Relay Team at Khe Sanh. But we were very close to and well supported by the main Khe Sanh Combat Base. It was pretty quiet, and I had the good fortune to rotate home about four months before Tet (They was scared to attack while I was there!) CAC-O got hit hard at the start of the siege, but because the location was far better, the troops first class and well-trained and the defenses good, they inflicted a lot of casualties on the NVA for almost none in return, and evacuated to the main base by foot. Even so, it was a hairy situation that I'm both sorry and glad to have missed. No Marine infantry fire team leader would have located an outpost in the situation described by Tapper. The terrain photos alone show it was a disaster scheduled to happen. When the bad guys can shoot down at you, you know you are in a bad place. That they steadily lost control of the surrounding area should have alerted someone that trouble was guaranteed. And I would trust the local Vietnam troops with us at Khe Sanh far more than the ANA described in the book. After reading it, I doubt that any hearts and minds can be won in that culture, only rented temporarily. I highly recommend this fine account of combat action.

New comment on "I'm Tired"
As a 47 year old who served for 17 years in the Navy before breaking my back. I think back since I was 9 years old and able to put milkers on cows I have worked all but 6 months. I now get up everyday and attend college and work. I think to vote one should have to pay taxes, have a job. You either produce and support the country or you suck it dry.

Worth ReadingThe Tangled Web of Race:  The racial binaries of the civil-rights era no longer apply in AmericaBy Victor Davis Hanson
Excerpt: A number of commentators have openly sympathized with multi-murderer Christopher Dorner, who shot seven innocent people, killing four of them. Apparently the late Dorner was a voice in the wilderness crying out against the racist injustice of the “system.” His brief killing career, in the reprehensible words of Fox News commentator Marc Lamont Hill, was “exciting” for many people – almost like “watching Django Unchained in real life.” That movie’s star, Jamie Foxx, had joked of his stint as a Quentin Tarantino big-screen hero gunman, “I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?”

Worth Reading: What if One Day We Get a Bad President? By Frank Fleming
Excerpt: The obvious solution is to have Obama be president forever, but that’s not practical. Eventually Obama will get bored and want to be president of a country he likes better than this one. Another idea would be to pass a law that if the president is an enlightened progressive, he shall have dictator-like powers and not have anything he does questioned by Congress or the Supreme Court, but if he’s a right-winger, he’ll need a supermajority in Congress to do anything. The only problem is that the Republicans in Congress love to block all commonsense legislation like that.

Brothers from Aarhus accused of terror
Excerpt: The state's prosecuting authority, Anklagemyndigheden, has commenced criminal proceedings against the two men after the justice minister, Morten Bødskov (Socialdemokraterne), concurred with the public prosecuting authority, Rigsadvokaten, that the two brothers, aged 24 and 19, violated the nation's terror laws.

Voters, 2-1, put jobs ahead of global warming
Excerpt: Americans are voting with their increasingly lighter pocketbook and wallets when it comes to whether President Obama should focus on creating jobs or ending global warming. By a two-to-one margin, 66 percent to 23 percent, likely voters polled by Rasmussen Reports said creating jobs was "more important" than "taking steps to stop global warming."

The Faux Empiricist: The president declares the pre-K science is settled. It is no such thing. By Rich Lowry
Excerpt: The least-plausible sentence in the English language is “We know this works,” when those words are spoken by President Barack Obama. … He cited “study after study” showing that investment in pre-K pays for itself several times over by creating better outcomes for children. He said this about two months after the release of a devastating report on the ineffectiveness of the federal government’s already existing $8 billion-a-year pre-K program, Head Start. (Teachers’ unions want it, so who cares about kids or taxpayers? ~Bob.)

President Narcissism Celebrates President’s Day with a Picture of… Himself!!

Man, when Obama finds the guy who signed the sequester into law, he's really going to give him a piece of his mind.

John Stossel Links Gun Control to Higher Crime Rates

MSNBC Panel Sits Around and Tells Race Jokes On the Air
Excerpt: After discussing if the best way to give a "social critique" on race was through humor, Harris-Perry told her panel, "Okay, so give me your favorite race joke or your best punch line on it." If a Fox News panel sat around and told race jokes on the set, there would be an uproar and accusations of racism would be directed at the network.

Excerpt: While AP’s Seth Borenstein cites opinions of activist scientists in erroneously claiming that ‘climate change’ increasing atmospheric moisture is the main driver for winter weather events, it turns out that El Niño patterns are strongly associated with winter weather impacts.

Newtown Shooter Picked School As It Was The “Easiest Target”
Excerpt: Who would have thought an area in which no one was left with the ability to defend themselves and others, known as a “gun free zone”, would make an easy target?

Excerpt: Our federal deficit problem is an entitlement problem. And our entitlement problem is mainly about income and health care for the elderly. As I pointed out in a previous post, entitlements for the elderly mainly subsidize retirement. If we cut back on spending, seniors will have less retirement income unless they work more and save more to replace those retrenchments. How much should we cut back and how should we do it?

The Job Market: Is College Overrated?
Excerpt: During the most recent economic downturn, college graduates have had a hard time finding work after they earn their degree. Predominant public policies and a mismatch between college graduate supply and job demand are the two primary reasons that half of all college graduates under the age of 25 are unemployed or underemployed, says Pamela Villarreal, a senior fellow with the National Center for Policy Analysis. Though many jobs do not require four-year degrees, the U.S. Department of Education made $166 billion dollars in loans in 2012. With an outpouring of federal funding, college costs have risen 130 percent more than inflation since 1988. The mismatch between the number of graduates produced and the jobs available is evident in the teaching profession, where colleges have turned out more than a quarter of a million bachelor's or master's degrees annually since 2000, despite the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimating that only 539,100 teaching positions will be available between 2010 and 2020.

DEMOCIDE: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns And Freedom

Excerpt: Documents obtained by The Daily Caller show that staffers for then-Sen. Chuck Hagel met repeatedly with a controversial pro-Iran lobby group, and some met with the organization’s president.

Report: Hagel Said Israel Headed Toward Apartheid, Netanyahu a ‘Radical.’ By Alana Goodman
Secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel said Israel is on its way to becoming an apartheid state during an April 9, 2010, appearance at Rutgers University, according to a contemporaneous account by an attendee. Hagel also accused Israel of violating U.N. resolutions, called for U.S.-designated terrorist organization Hamas to be included in any peace negotiations, and described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “radical,” according to the source.

How Republican resistance has hurt Chuck Hagel (and why it probably doesn’t matter). By Sean Sullivan 
Excerpt: A new Pew Research Center poll released Wednesday shows that while half of Americans still don’t have an opinion of the former Republican senator from Nebraska, among those who do, Hagel’s favorability is now under water, and the the percentage holding a very unfavorable opinion of Hagel has nearly doubled in the past month:

California police search for motive in morning shooting rampage that left 4 dead
Excerpt: The shooter, 20-year-old Ali Syed, killed a woman in the home he shared with his parents, killed two drivers during carjackings, injured two others and shot up cars on a busy freeway interchange before committing suicide as police closed in, authorities said. Syed, an unemployed part-time community college student, had no known motive and acted alone, said Tustin police Chief Scott Jordan. … A shotgun was recovered at the scene and is believed to be the only weapon used. (Could the motive be Jihad? Nah, Islam’s a Religion of Peace. Notice he took Biden’s advice and used a shotgun. This will be called more evidence we must ban rifles and magazines holding more than ten rounds. ~Bob.)

Biden: ‘You Don’t Need 30 Rounds. Buy a Shotgun’
Excerpt: “You don’t need an AR-15,” Mr. Biden said, referring to an assault-style rifle. “It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use, and in fact, you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.” (And if the home invasion team consists of three critters, you club the last one. ~Bob.)

Self-Defense Tips from Joe Biden

Excerpt: Law enforcement agencies are changing their tune about how to deal with an active shooter situation at a school or other public building. They used to emphasize running and/or hiding from the shooter. In more recent training videos and seminars, they’ve added the confrontation element, but only as a last resort. In an instruction manual written by the U.S. Capitol Police, they advocate taking out the shooter with “whatever means you can”: (A low probably of success, but sometimes you have to fight when it’s hopeless rather than live with yourself afterwards. If you find a “means” as effective as a gun, let me know. Just don’t tell the Democrats, as they will ban it. ~Bob.)

Greeks in fresh general strike against austerity
The government’s broke and the economy sucks. Let’s go on strike and make things worse! This is our future. ~Bob.

Excerpt: Bulgaria's government resigned on Wednesday after mass protests against high power prices and falling living standards, joining a long list of European administrations felled by austerity during four years of debt crisis. (The good ship SS Socialist Dreams is going hard aground on the rocks of reality. ~Bob.)

Militants kidnap French family in north Cameroon
Excerpt: Islamist militants from neighboring Nigeria abducted a French family of seven, including four children, in northern Cameroon on Tuesday, French President Francois Hollande said. (Good thing Islam’s a Religion of Peace, or these kids might be in danger. ~Bob.)

Obama's scare talk on spending cuts
Excerpt: During the summer 2011 debt ceiling battle, President Obama's White House came up with the idea of sequestration. It is a mechanism designed to trigger automatic spending cuts in the event that a congressional "super committee" couldn't agree to at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction. Congress passed the White House proposal, and Obama signed it into law. And in November 2011, Obama vowed, "I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off-ramps on this one."

Excerpt: The Pentagon notified Congress Wednesday it will be furloughing its civilian workforce of 800,000 employees if sequestration goes into effect March 1.

Quotes from The Patriot Post
"The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those that speak it." --English novelist and journalist George Orwell (1903-1950). "The more rules and regulations, the more thieves and robbers there will be." --Father of Taoism Lao-Tzu (570-490 BC). "If Dems introduce a bill to keep women from being able to use a gun [to] defend against rapists, they should call it the Kennedy Protection Act." --humorist Frank J. Fleming.

Obama: Energy Is Going to Be More Expensive
Excerpt: During a Friday Google+ hangout session, President Barack Obama conceded that his policies to address climate change will raise energy costs, a fact that could prove uncomfortable for Democrats in areas reliant on fossil fuel power plants: I have to tell you that there are some Democrats, for example, who represent states or districts that are heavily reliant on old power plants and are more heavily manufacturing based. (Grinding the poor for Greenie dreams. ~Bob.)

‘Financial Emergency’ Declared in Detroit
Excerpt: The fiscal crisis plaguing Detroit is now in the hands of Michigan’s governor after a state-appointed review team determined the city was in a financial emergency with “no satisfactory plan” to resolve it. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder has 30 days to decide if Detroit needs an emergency manager to take charge of its finances and spending, and come up with a new plan to get the city out of its financial mess. (My plan would involve a lot of bulldozers and a lot of one-way bus tickets to California. ~Bob.)

Forget the big comeback; Detroit focuses on what can be saved
Excerpt: Imagine a city with open space larger than the size of Paris, where people are planting hardwood trees and vegetable gardens, and neighbors have plenty of room to spread out. It would sound so idyllic, if only it weren't Detroit. The open space is largely abandoned land, the lack of neighbors the result of an inexorable exodus, the planting the work of residents striving to stop the blight from spreading. (The last Republican mayor of Detroit was defeated for reelection in 191, by African American support for his opponent. This is the fate of all cities under big government, tax and spend leftists. ~Bob.)

The Next Scott Brown? By William Kristol
Excerpt: Can lightning strike twice? With Gabriel Gomez, a new voice in Massachusetts politics, I think it just might. Similar circumstances seem to be at work as in 2010. We have another candidate who can lay out a path to a winning coalition.

Police use ethnic profiling to surveil communities most likely to harbor terrorists
Excerpt: The ACLU, along with their Islamist pals at CAIR want to stop a very effective FBI effort known as ‘geo-mapping’ which has evolved into something more expansive — a method to track Muslim communities, where the vast majority of potential terrorists (Muslims) are most likely to be.

As Texas appeals to California’s businesses, Golden State boosters can only make flatulence jokes. By Ben Boychuk
Excerpt: Earlier this month, Texas governor Rick Perry came to California to talk about doing business in the Lone Star State. A dismissive Jerry Brown wanted to talk about the weather. … Brown dismissive attitude overlooks the powerful economic appeal of Perry’s home state—but never let the facts get in the way of a good old-fashioned, red-blue political dustup.

Afghanistan And Iraq Head To Hell, Thanks To Obama
Excerpt: Iranian-backed Shiite terrorists aligning with Iraq's prime minister, and the Taliban's likely return in Afghanistan, are milestone events. President Obama is engineering a double U.S. defeat. (A people unwilling to pay the price of victory should consider the long term costs of defeat. ~Bob)

Will Only Suckers Buy ObamaCare Insurance? By John Merline
Excerpt: For years, ObamaCare critics focused on its least popular feature — the mandate that everyone buy insurance — taking their fight all the way to the Supreme Court. But as ObamaCare's official launch date approaches, even its backers are beginning to admit that the law could actually create powerful incentives for millions of people and thousands of businesses to drop their coverage, despite the mandate.

ObamaCare vs. children’s health. By Scott Gottlieb
Excerpt: If you’re a poor child, and you like your health plan, you can’t keep it. In fact, it’s now clear that ObamaCare will force tens of millions of Americans to accept inferior health coverage to what they have now. The most-threatened groups include: people who now get their policies from a job at a small business, those who buy individual coverage direct from an insurer, seniors who qualify for Medicaid as well as Medicare and kids enrolled in the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP.

The Top Ten Health-Care Bills for 2013: New tactics are needed to make the case against Obamacare. By James C. Capretta
Excerpt: Last year, the two best opportunities to stop Obamacare before it got implemented were missed. First, Chief Justice John Roberts bent over backwards to find the law’s individual mandate to be a constitutional tax on the uninsured. Then, the voters decided they preferred another term for President Obama over a Romney administration.

Targeting Tehran’s Euros. By Jonathan Schanzer, Mark Dubowitz
Excerpt: The United States has blocked Iran from easily accessing greenbacks as a means to slow down the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. But those financial sanctions only go so far. With Iranian nuclear physics still outpacing Western economic pressure, Washington is looking to prevent the mullahs from accessing their second favorite currency: the euro.

Obama’s obedient lap dog By Michael Goodwin
Excerpt: Members of the national media are never so unattractive as when they turn the spotlight on themselves, and their weekend hissy fit after President Obama ignored them proves the point. It was the equivalent of a lovers’ quarrel over leaving the cap off the toothpaste tube. It makes for juicy gossip among the neighbors, but ultimately, nobody really cares.

The Wimpification of the American Man. By Dave Horne
Excerpt: But it appears that for as many as 20% of today's American males, this is no longer the truth. Thanks to our emerging Nanny State, our kids are learning that their economic well being defined by the state -- and if you want more than your neighbor, well, you're just greedy. So where will the innovative drive that built the US economy in the past come from? (The sharp decline of young males in the workforce is among the trends detailed in the excellent but scary book, Coming Apart. ~Bob)

Worth Reading: Who Needs the Family? By Daniel Greenfield 
Excerpt: When their child is old enough to look around for a career, it is the government that they expect to provide the education and the jobs. And when they grow old, the child can keep on working at his government job and paying off his student loans knowing that the government will be there to make all the difficult and expensive decisions about their care. With all that taken care of, who needs parents or children anyway?

Worth Reading: 'Knockout Game' Perp Shot, Killed: During apparent burglary, ran into 'right person' with gun. By Colin Flaherty

What If 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America? By Frosty Wooldridge
Excerpt: In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupted hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominate language again.

Columbine Survivor Pens Bold Open Letter To Obama Rejecting Gun Control: ‘Whose Side Are You On?’
Excerpt: Columbine survivor Evan Todd released an open letter to President Barack Obama on Wednesday in which he offers a point-by-point analysis of proposed firearms control initiatives, dismissing them as ineffective and dangerous to Americans’ rights.

Excerpt: Controversy over the legality of attacks by missile-firing drones will not dampen the volatile region’s enthusiasm for the technology, in part because export curbs mean most equipment sold will be for use only in reconnaissance, experts say. Sello Ntsihlele, executive manager for UAVs at Denel Dynamics, a division of state-owned Denel, South Africa’s biggest maker of defence equipment, told Reuters this was “the best time” for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) sales. “Demand is growing fast in developing countries, in the Middle East, the Far East and Africa. (US selling reportedly $200 million worth but purportedly “unarmed.” Could, of course, be retrofitted otherwise. –Barb. But only to kill bad Muslims…~Bob.)

Pro-Gay Marriage Muslim MPs Get Threats

Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it. --W. Somerset Maugham

Exported from Detroit: No Maseratis
Excerpt: The Maserati Levante, an Italian sport utility which shares features with the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, will not be built at Chrysler Group LLC's Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Michigan. Production of the sleek Italian beauty received ballyhoo attention from Michigan’s Republican governor as evidence of a comeback for Detroit and as evidence of Fiat/Chrysler devotion to the Motor City and the state once synonymous with automobiles.

This is big government’: 500 furloughed at GE plant subsidized and lionized by White House
Excerpt: In 2009, the Obama administration gave $24.8 million in stimulus tax credits to GE’s famous “Appliance Park” factory compound. VP Joe Biden toured the plant as a stimulus success declaring: So those who talk about this is big government, this is big government giving a little bit of help to jump start America to lead the world in the 21st century…In 2010, Appliance Park won a $2.5 stimulus grant. (I feel bad for any of the 500 who voted for Romney. They didn’t deserve it. If there were any. ~Bob.)

Total Destruction of the U.S.: An Interview with Larry Grathwohl
Excerpt: For a hundred years, the main intellectual force behind America's educational establishment has been John Dewey, a socialist and open critic of the Enlightenment, American individualism, and American constitutional government. What kind of education system should people have expected Dewey and his admirers to promote? Should anyone be surprised that the public school establishment built largely according to his theories has become an anti-American cesspool of collectivism, irrationalism, and immorality?

Recovery Killer? Gas Prices Barrel Toward $4 a Gallon
Excerpt: The U.S. economic recovery, already winded by higher payroll taxes and potential budget cuts, has a new challenge - higher prices at the gas pump.
