Senate Democrats: ‘The Ineptitude Of The White House Political Operation’ is ‘Embarrassing’

The National Journal is reporting that the White House and Senate Democrats are fighting again. Their relationship hit a new low Tuesday evening after the administration's press office released a transcript of first lady Michelle Obama's appearance in Iowa on behalf of Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley. As I realized when I opened my email box in the morning and saw the original transcript of Mrs. Obama's address and underneath that a corrected version there was a big mistake in the email---the subject line of the e-mail referred to Braley as the "Democratic candidate for governor."
The botch came after the first lady repeatedly referred to the Democratic Senate nominee as "Bruce Bailey" in a campaign appearance earlier this month—and it took an attendee in the crowd to correct her mistake. On Tuesday, she made light of the incident, reminding the audience she messed up his name last time and joking that she sometimes calls Barack Obama "Bo." But the self-inflicted errors continued after her speech with the White House press shop's email. At midnight, two hours after the initial press release, the White House issued a corrected e-mail that reflected his accurate title.

Indicating the sensitivity of the mistake, top Senate Democratic officials wasted no time lashing out at the Obama administration's political team in response, suggesting it was acting like a junior varsity operation two weeks before the midterms. The slipup comes one day after President Obama told Rev. Al Sharpton on his radio show that Senate Democrats keeping their distance from him are still "folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress." That alarmed Senate Democrats up for reelection this November, most of whom are working hard to distance themselves from an unpopular president.
To Senate Democrats the President is like Lord Voldermort "He who must not be named"
"The ineptitude of the White House political operation has sunk from annoying to embarrassing," one senior Senate Democratic aide told National Journal. Another Senate official told the Washington Post that Obama's comments were "not devised with any input from Senate leadership."
Now why would they expect their political operation to be any better than the economic or foreign policy operation.  When you think about it the only part of the White House working correctly is the cover up the scandals operation.

Canadian Shooter Recent Convert To Islam-Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, Formerly Joseph Michael Hall

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo The Canadian Soldier Killed Today At The War Memorial
Fox News is reporting the shooter in the Canadian Parliament attack is a recent convert to Islam Michael Zehaf-Bibeau (Aged 32) who was born with the name Joseph Michael Hall.

Sources told The Toronto Globe and Mail newspaper in Canada that he was recently designated a “high-risk traveller” by the Canadian government and that his passport had been seized – the same circumstances surrounding the case of Martin Rouleau-Couture, the Quebecker who was shot Monday after running down two Canadian Forces soldiers with his car.
A government official told Fox that investigators believe Zehaf-Bibeau, who was killed at the scene, had changed his name from Joseph Michael Hall. U.S. agencies also have been advised he was believed to be a convert to Islam and was from Quebec.
Police sources confirmed this image tweeted from an ISIS account depicts Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
Counter terrorism investigators are reviewing his social media traffic and profile, with a focus on any link to the attack on two soldiers in Quebec Monday.
At a news conference hours later, authorities described a "dynamic" situation, and could not confirm whether more potential gunmen were at large, although they said no arrests had been made.

"We're still in the process of clearing Parliament Hill. It is a slow and methodical process," Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau said.

The shooting at the government complex came after witnesses said they saw at least one man jump out of a Toyota Corolla and run toward the memorial and open fire on the soldier, who later died at Civic Hospital.
The soldier was identified as Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, according to his aunt, the Globe and Mail reported. Cirillo was a member of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, a regiment of Reserve Forces based in Hamilton, according to the Globe, and was training to join the Canada Border Services Agency. May his soul rest in peace.

The Sergeant-at-Arms of Canada's Parliament is being hailed as a hero after shooting  the terrorist dead. Kevin Vickers, a former member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, shot the suspect, said Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino.

Incredible Shrinking Goats: The Latest Addition To The Official Stupid Things People Blame On Global Warming List

Global warming proponents have blamed the collapse of gingerbread houses in Sweden to UFO sightings in the UK on the climate change hypothesis. The latest example offered up to scare people into believing that global warming is set to kill us all is that certain Alpine goats appear to be shrinking in size.

According to a study by England's Durham University, Chamois a species of mountain goat, now weigh about 25 per cent less than animals of the same age in the 1980s.
Body size declines attributed to climate change are widespread in the animal kingdom, with many fish, bird and mammal species getting smaller," study author Tom Mason, a biologist at England's Durham University, explained in a recent press release. "However the decreases we observe here are astonishing. The impacts on Chamois weight could pose real problems for the survival of these populations.

(...) We know that Chamois cope with hot periods by resting more and spending less time searching for food, and this may be restricting their size more than the quality of the vegetation they eat," study co-author Stephen Willis said. "If climate change results in similar behavioral and body mass changes in domestic livestock, this could have impacts on agricultural productivity in coming decades."
Despite the fear mongering this study originally published in the journal Frontiers in Zoology did not find that global warming is causing smaller goats. It simply finds that these mountain goats aren't as big as they were 30 years ago. The scientists claim it is a result of global warming but they do not present research proving linkage between the two.

There are also issues with the research itself, specially the way they got their data. The scientists didn't weigh the goats by taking their bathroom scales or some equivalent up to the mountains and asking the Chamois to step on. They received their data from checking the records of hunters who have shot goats. They didn't even weigh the deceased nannies and bucks they just used the claims of hunters, assumed that all the scales were calibrated the same and that technology hasn't changed the scale in the past 30 years.

Another problem with the scientists' claim is that people have been over-harvesting of older male Chamois goats, leaving a higher concentration of smaller younger animals.

If the researchers were being truthful they would admit there's no scientific link between the shrinking goats and global warming.

Therefore this latest scare becomes the 51st item the official "Stupid Things People Blame On Global Warming List" ach one of the items below, from the Arab Spring to Vampire Bats and the Sinking of the Titanic have been blamed on climate change. You see if someone in the world stubs their toe, a global warming fear monger will find a way to blame it on global warming.

James O'Keefe Answers Donna Brazile With New Must Watch Video Exposing Voter Fraud In Colorado

When Democratic Party wonk and progressive ideologue Donna Brazile tweeted that there was no concrete evidence of voter fraud, she must have forgotten the ACORN scandals exposed in part by James O'Keefe.

When Project Veritas' James O'Keefe saw the tweet he promised some new havoc which would prove her wrong. Today he delivered again.

A video released on Wednesday by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has agents going undercover and recording Senator Mark Udall advocates in Colorado condoning voter fraud. (By the way James the mustache looks good you should grow one).

One woman, Meredith Hicks, the Director for Work For Progress, says, “That’s not even like lying or stealing, if someone throws out a ballot, like you want to fill it out you should do it.”

The nearly eight-minute video has case after case of O’Keefe talking to different Democratic operatives admitting to possible voter fraud.

One woman who works for Greenpeace told O’Keefe where he can find recycled or discarded mail in ballots to fill out for Udall and give him the extra votes.

Another woman, Nicole Hanlen, directed a PV agent to a location where out-of-state people from Oregon can cast their vote by just using bills and not a Colorado I.D.

Knowing O'Keefe I am sure there is more coming. Watch the video below:

Ferguson Update: Official Michael Brown Autopsy Report Vindicates Officer Wilson

The official autopsy of Michael Brown has been released by the St. Louis County medical examiner's office and according to two pathologists not working on the case they seem to support the account of Officer Darren Wilson.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch spoke to people familiar with Wilson's grand jury testimony and went over the autopsy report with the pathologists not working on the case:
A source with knowledge of Wilson’s statements said the officer had told investigators that Brown had struggled for Wilson’s pistol inside a police SUV and that Wilson had fired the gun twice, hitting Brown once in the hand. Later, Wilson fired additional shots that killed Brown and ignited a national controversy.

The St. Louis medical examiner, Dr. Michael Graham, who is not part of the official investigation, reviewed the autopsy report for the newspaper. He said Tuesday that it “does support that there was a significant altercation at the car.”

Graham said the examination indicated a shot traveled from the tip of Brown’s right thumb toward his wrist. The official report notes an absence of stippling, powder burns around a wound that indicate a shot fired at relatively short range.

But Graham said, “Sometimes when it’s really close, such as within an inch or so, there is no stipple, just smoke.”

The report on a supplemental microscopic exam of tissue from the thumb wound showed foreign matter “consistent with products that are discharged from the barrel of a firearm.
A second pathologist, Dr. Judy Melinek agreed that the autopsy supports Wilson's story. She said the examination "supports the fact that this guy is reaching for the gun, if he has gunpowder particulate material in the wound.” She added, “If he has his hand near the gun when it goes off, he’s going for the officer’s gun.”

According to the Post-Dispatch Michael Brown’s blood was found on Wilson’s gun.

Dr, Melinek also said the autopsy did not support witnesses who claimed Brown was shot while running away or with his hands up:
She said Brown was facing Wilson when Brown took a shot to the forehead, two shots to the chest and a shot to the upper right arm. The wound to the top of Brown’s head would indicate he was falling forward or in a lunging position toward the shooter; the shot was instantly fatal.

A sixth shot that hit the forearm traveled from the back of the arm to the inner arm, which means Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson, as some witnesses have said, Melinek said. That trajectory shows Brown probably was not taking a standard surrender position with arms above the shoulders and palms out when he was hit, she said.
Additionally the autopsy reported that Mr. Brown's tissue was found on the outside driver's side of Officer Wilson's vehicle.
“Someone got an injury that tore off skin and left it on the car,” Graham said. “That fits with everything else that came out. There’s blood in the car, now skin on the car, that shows something happened right there.”
Brown's family also conducted an autopsy. This one run by pathologist Dr. Michael Baden preliminarily said none of Michael Brown's wounds were made at close range which would disagree with the officer's report.

Professional agitators such as Al Sharpton, and MSNBC hosts such as Joy Reid have already convicted Officer Wilson without seeing the evidence. But now that some of the evidence is coming out and seems to vindicate the officer don't expect them to slow down their condemnations. Truth is not important to people like that.
