The Shutdown Myths | National Review Online
Obama and the Art of Phoniness | National Review Online
Many years ago, I was a member of a committee that was recommending to whom grant money should be awarded. Since I knew one of the applicants, I asked if this meant that I should recuse myself from voting on his application.
The man was indeed a very talented phony. He could convince almost anybody of almost anything — provided that they were not already knowledgeable about the subject. He had once spoken to me very authoritatively about Marxian economics, apparently unaware that I was one of the few people who had read all three volumes of Marx’s Capital and had published articles on Marxian economics in scholarly journals. What our glib talker was saying might have seemed impressive to someone who had never readCapital, as most people have not. But it was complete nonsense to me.
Incidentally, he did not get the grant he applied for.
This episode came back to me recently, as I read an incisive column by Charles Krauthammer, citing some of the many gaffes in public statements by the president of the United States. One presidential gaffe in particular gives the flavor and suggests the reason for many others. It involved the Falkland Islands.

At any rate, J. Edgar Hoover, misdirected law enforcement away from his own ineptitude and coziness with organized crime, by pursuing Communist Agents in America. This was justified, even if most of his behavior was not. "A broken clock is right twice a day."
Hoover wrote a book (or had it ghosted) that was entitled: "The Masters of Deceit." It was a more interesting book than one would expect today.
That Title certainly seems to apply to the current President and his Administration.

'HILARIOUS": Top MIT scientist mocks newest UN climate report | The Daily Caller
A top climate scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lambasted a new report by the UN’s climate bureaucracy that blamed mankind as the main cause of global warming and whitewashed the fact that there has been a hiatus in warming for the last 15 years.
“I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic news site. “They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase.”
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claimed it was 95 percent sure that global warming was mainly driven by human burning of fossil fuels that produce greenhouse gases. The I.P.C.C. also glossed over the fact that the Earth has not warmed in the past 15 years, arguing that the heat was absorbed by the ocean.
“Their excuse for the absence of warming over the past 17 years is that the heat is hiding in the deep ocean,” Lindzen added. “However, this is simply an admission that the models fail to simulate the exchanges of heat between the surface layers and the deeper oceans.”
Mark Steyn's Epic Rant: IPCC Confesses No Global Warming for 15 Years | Independent Journal Review
Kyle Becker September 24, 2013
Mark Steyn subbed for Rush on Monday and unloaded an epic rant ahead of the UN’s 10-day “Climate Week” in light of the IPCC’s admission that there has been no global warming since 1998.
Steyn cites the LA Times‘ “Global warming ‘hiatus’ puts climate change scientists on the spot,” and this is the key finding:
IPCC vice chair Francis Zwiers, director of the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium at the University of Victoria in Canada, co-wrote a paper published in this month’s Nature Climate Change that said climate models had “significantly” overestimated global warming over the last 20 years — and especially for the last 15 years, which coincides with the onset of the hiatus.go to link-
The models had predicted that the average global surface temperature would increase by 0.21 of a degree Celsius over this period, but they turned out to be off by a factor of four, Zwiers and his colleagues wrote. In reality, the average temperature has edged up only 0.05 of a degree Celsius over that time — which in a statistical sense is not significantly different from zero.
UN Climate Change Report Ignores 15-Year 'Pause' in Warming
An exhaustive United Nations report that claimed with 95% certainty that humans are responsible for global warming left out data that found the planet has stopped warming over the last 15 years, because it did not fit with the climate change agenda it wanted to advance.
Since the time of Castro's first appearance, the UN has been a giant glazed circus tent filled with bad acts, bad actors and little talent. m/r

It is Astounding how one, seemingly incompetent man, can make such a mess of things! Obama: The Anti-Post-Racial President
Here is a result that seems to be growing in frequency:
GREENVILLE, N.C. 9-25-13 (AP/CBS Charlotte) — A man who shot four people near a Greenville Wal-Mart in June picked out his victims because they were white, according to several indictments handed down against him.
Lakim Faust had more than 100 rounds of ammunition when he started shooting at people who were standing outside at a law firm and a shopping center in June, authorities said.
A grand jury indicted Faust on 14 charges Monday, including four counts of attempted first-degree murder.
Faust, who is black, picked out his victims based on their race, according to the indictments. The documents didn’t specify why Faust wanted to shoot white people, and police have not talked about why he picked out his targets. Earlier reports had indicated that Faust was shooting “indiscriminately.”
Obama: The Anti-Post-Racial President | FrontPage Magazine
Judging from a Gallup poll conducted shortly before the election, voters bought it: over half of all Americans were confident that interracial relations would dramatically improve because of this “historic” event.
In the wake of his election, this number soared to seven out of ten Americans who entertained high hopes for the future of race relations in America—and the world.
Obama was going to “fundamentally transform” America by redeeming it of its historical transgressions, namely, its treatment of its black citizens.
Even someone as ordinarily sensible as John McWhorter endorsed this nonsense....
Even prior to his election Obama had the distinction of introducing to the nation the toxic “black liberationist,” his pastor and “spiritual mentor” of over 20 years, the close friend of Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan, the “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright. ...
... Long before any facts were in, Obama made the now infamous comment that if he had had a son, the latter would look like “Trayvon.”
The implication was unmistakable: Trayvon Martin was indeed killed in cold blood because of the color of his skin.
Our president is contemptible.
