John Kusak

Here’s a guy I just don’t think about very often.

Yes.. I’ve enjoyed a number of his movies over the years, particularly in the 1990’s, but my world moved on and he just didn’t maintain that position of importance.  He wasn’t on my bus, so to speak.

However… I find him interesting once again.

Mr. Kusak seems astonished that there were no “Liberal” Democrats supporting Rand Paul’s filibuster of John Brennan’s appointment to the head of the CIA.  Rand Paul’s filibuster was brought about due to Mr. Brennan’s being the designer of the current Drone policy and the claimed unilateral ability by the Obama Administration of the power to kill U.S. Citizens on American soil.

While the Drone Debate is a very good one and needs to be fleshed out completely, it’s Kusak’s Astonishment that I’m fascinated by.

We have talked about Cognitive Dissonance in the past. It’s when an individual encounters, or realizes, their support for certain ideas runs counter to what reality presents them. It’s an extreme form of confusion due to the heighten level of personal investment the individual has in his idea being the correct one.

Well, Mr. Kusak is very confused.  Astonished even.  John’s tweets regarding the Paul event can be found at Twitchy.  It doesn’t take long and it’s worth reading all of them.

Mr. Kusak laments the absence of Democrats “standing up to Obama” over his supposed “transition” into something he doesn’t like but cannot seem to define.

John Cusack: Where are the Democrats to stand up to ‘regressive corporate warlord’ Obama?

This is where I feel slightly sorry for John.  It is exactly his ignorance of governing theory that fails him here.  If he would take a small amount of time and research Socialism he would not be so disturbed and might find himself understanding why the Democrats are not embracing Rand Paul… in ANY endeavor.

While I enjoy the alliteration of ‘regressive corporate warlord’ it falls into the catagory on meaningless.  But Mr. Kusak is looking for cover in order to square what he believes his identity of “Liberal” requires versus what the reality of the situation is.

It should be no surprise that Rand Paul stands alone save the few TEA Party and Libertarians that are brave enough to stand with him.  They are being called “the new breed”, but make no mistake what their principles are and who propelled them into office.  This must add insult to injury for John.  ‘How on earth can the ridiculous idiots in the TEA party have any connection to things I believe in!?’

This is where Mr. Kusak’s ignorance steps in once again.

His “Liberal” identity has put him in the uneducated position of supporting people such as President Obama who demand nothing more than his dependence and obedience.  This is the Socialist paradigm.

I would imagine he’s further confused because for many years the Republicans have offered this same exchange of taxpayer money for exactly the same dependence and obedience with only slightly less aggression.

Now that there are “Republicans” who are returning to what the (idiotic, syphilis ridden, racist, gun toting) Founders intended does he make the first step in waking up.

I have no faith that this experience will lead Mr. Kusak to explore governing theory any further than to heal this wound he is suffering and return him to the “enlightened comfort” of his Liberal ideals…  but it should serve as a fantastic example to the rest of us that presented with undeniable truth and Natural Law the Socialists, at least some of them, have to think.

I wish for John to look deeply into Socialism and it’s variants of Communism, Fascism, etc.  I hope he studies them long enough to see what the outcomes of such approaches are… the level of oppression, destruction and death.  I’ll make it simple and give him a quick reference: Killer of Men.

Good Luck John.

If you’re going to be a Socialist… then be the best one you can be.  But at least know what that means.

(It is also interesting that many individuals who consider themselves Democrats but hold NRA memberships and believe the Second Amendment is integral to their freedom are suffering from this as well.  It will be intriguing to see which identity/ideal wins out in the end with those folks too.)


Panetta on Benghazi

“I should have had a V-8!” – What Mr. Leon Panetta, Secretary of Defense, should have limited is opening remarks to during this mornings Benghazi Hearings.

Listening to Leon Panetta one might think the deployment of Diplomats throughout the world occurred for the very first time under his watch, and none of the dangers associated with such an endeavor had ever been experienced before. In other words, we just could never have foreseen the potential threats to Ambassador Stevens and the Benghazi Embassy staff.

Mr. Panetta has also stated that it cannot be the Department of Defense’s responsibility to defend our Diplomats abroad.
Mr. Panetta has stated that even if it was DoD’s responsibility… “there was no actionable intelligence available” in order for defense forces to come to the aid of our diplomats.  Along with that, he told the hearing committee that there was not the available “armed” aircraft to respond… “it would have taken too long to arm the aircraft needed… and we didn’t have the resources to fuel those craft for the trip”.

Mr. Panetta is asking us to suspend reason and burn our maps, in order for all of this to make sense.

To see reason here requires those who nod approvingly at such a statement to forget that we had a man on the ground actively “lazing” the enemy mortar site sending rounds into the compound in addition to a Drone watching the events transpiring below plus later interviews with those at Aviano Air Base stating that they could have been there had they been called.  Finally it requires one to believe that while we have armed Drones crawling all over the Middle East, with ranges allowing them to travel all over the region, that none were available to be temporarily diverted to the area under attack.  (According to Mr. Panetta, the only Drone available was an unarmed one… which apparently was strangely unable to supply the intelligence needed to discern whether aid for those under attack was needed.  I would offer that if a Drone’s “intelligence” is enough for those driving it to decide whether or not a U.S. Citizen can be executed without due process that the “intelligence” being gleaned from the Benghazi site should have been enough to figure those on the ground  needed help.  And… what kind of surveillance equipment did this drone have?  Camera’s to see the firefight… and the active lazing of targets?  Listening devices to pick up the frantic radio chatter?  Radio equipment capable of communicating this information to those who could make the decisions to send help?  Or was this Drone void of these capabilities?  Yes or No?
Mr. Panetta made the assertion that forces could not be deployed because of other “possible threats” to our other consulates in the region, while mere moments earlier stating that there were no imminent threats to our personnel.  But wait a minute… I thought there were no discernible threats in the region on our Embassies.

My question is; Which is it Mr. Panetta? There seem to be three stories here.

Either there were threats detected on our Embassies “across the region” as you said out loud this morning, or there were not… as you also stated out loud this morning.
Either you did have the ability to send forces to aid those under attack and chose not to, or you did not.
Either it is your responsibility to defend our diplomats, or it is not… (nor ever has it been.)

You said there were… and there were not… in the same opening remarks.

If, Sir, it is not the Dept. of Defense’s responsibility, then whose is it?  State?  CIA? New York’s Finest? Who!

You stated that perimeter security was the responsibility “of the Host country”… so you, and the Department of Defense in Cooperation with the Department of State are incapable of evaluating the ability of the Host country to provide such security?  Seriously?  Do you need to take a minute and read back what just escaped your mouth?  To say such a statement is “unbelievable” is charitable.

Even if none of this was “your problem”, why didn’t you help?  “The U.S. Armed Forces are not a 911 service standing by to come to the rescue of our citizens all over the world.”  Really?  I would think the U.S. citizenry, and many of our soldiers, would be surprised to hear such a statement.  If that is not within their “job description”, then what exactly IS their job description Mr. Secretary?

I am stunned that this country has survived to be 250 years old and rising to the position of world hyper-power while, according to Mr. Panetta, never having learned all of these “unforeseen lessons” this tragedy has suddenly taught us.  May be in another 250 years we’ll get a handle on this whole Diplomacy thing.  This entire Administration acts as if none of this Major League Governing Stuff has ever been done before and we are learning as we go.

Absolutely Amazing.

I’m not sure I have enough liquor to get through this hearing…


Shut Up About Libya!

At Least That’s What President Obama wants you to do…

A story just hit the wire… more like a press release.

“A Special Operations Strike Force is on Standby…”

Apparently the Obama Administration is having serious trouble with the Death of our Libyan Ambassador on 9/11.

So a story about the White House “being ready” to kill those responsible has been issued.

Let me ask you…

When are our Special Operations Units not on standby?

If we have a specific target in mind for our Special Operations units, why would we broadcast it?

And, finally, who is concerned about the “what” we are going to do about it?  I have only heard concern over the “why” it happened and the subsequent “misinformation” regarding the cause.  They primary concern is why the ridiculous explanation after the attack.  An explanation that has been discredited by all involved multiple times… yet continues to be resurrected by the White House.

This release screams of politics.  There is no reason for such a story except as an attempt to remove some of the heat the Administration is feeling on the negligence associated with the assassination of our Ambassador.

This release not only increases the odds of never being able to find those responsible by alerting them to our “special attention” being given them… the alert also increases the danger our troops suffer in accomplishing their mission.

You NEVER tell the Terrorist A-Holes that you’re going to get them… you just do it.

Someone needs to call these people on this.

This is the lowest form of political manuevre.

Are they that desperate to appear they are doing everything they can prior to the debates and coming election?

I’m genuinely disgusted… not surprised, just profoundly disgusted.

Killing ambassadors has historically led to war.  This is serious.  It seems everyone, including the Liberal Press, know this except the White House.  There must be “grow-ups” somewhere in this Administration.  While I do not agree with Panetta… or Clinton for that matter… they are adults.  They have always struck me as serious individuals.  I fail to see them thinking this is a good idea.  Unless I see differently, I must assume they do.

With this story the White House has now made it clear that nothing… not the lives of our soldiers… not the security of our diplomatic personnel overseas… not the intelligence of our citizenry matters.

All that matters is their re-election.  Sick.
