The REAL STORY Behind Abdelhamid Abaaoud Liquor Swilling

Europe, Government, Jihad, Journalism, Terrorism

More moronity from the lovely Megyn Kelly. On the eponymous Kelly File, today, Kelly kibitzed about the the Paris Attacks mastermind, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, swilling whiskey in Paris’ Saint-Denis district, in contravention of Islamic law.

To those who still remember what investigative journalism is—all journalists should investigate nonstop—the real story is the criminal negligence of the French people’s so-called protectors. Abaaoud was thus relaxing and celebrating A DAY AFTER the successful attacks. Thanks to the worse-than-shoddy, pricey police work, Abaaoud had also managed to return undisturbed to the scene of the crime and survey his handiwork, SHORTLY AFTER THE ATTACK, milling about with the idiot French gendarmes.

Where were the roadblocks? Where was the simple police work, namely stop and question loiterers, after such a disaster?

Kelly is managing to transform her show to the Barbara Walters model she so admires.

Ann Coulter Is Evolving Wonderfully

Ann Coulter, Government, IMMIGRATION, Left-Liberalism, War

Finally, the once-war loving Ann Coulter, who stood firm behind Bush’s war crimes in Iraq, calling them “magnificent,” is becoming so much more paleolibertarian, recognizing that the strict role of government in the American republic, RIP, is to do the only thing government might be capable of doing and is certainly empowered to do constitutionally: Keep the barbarians out. When she’s good, Ms. Coulter is so very-very good (that’s why she’s being kept off the idiot’s lantern; Coulter would finish Marco Rubio off. And Fox News is pushing Marco Robber O).


Republicans think the way to get tough is to go to war in Syria.

Marco Rubio gives macho speeches about a military attack on ISIS—“either they win or we win!”—to distract from the fact that his immigration bill would have massively increased the number of needy immigrants pouring into our country—including Muslim refugees.

So Rubio’s plan for Middle East stability is to start more wars and then import all the displaced terrorists into the United States. Brilliant!

Not to be a stickler, but ISIS didn’t slaughter 3,000 Americans on 9/11, blow up the Boston Marathon, murder thirteen Americans at Fort Hood, or open fire on a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

ISIS didn’t kill Kate Steinle, commit mass murder on the Long Island Railroad, introduce Palo Mayombe and Santeria to our country, bring slaves and concubines from India to San Francisco, or burn down hundreds of acres of national parks to evade border agents.

ISIS doesn’t import 90 percent of the illegal drugs that kill thousands of Americans every year, steal billions of dollars from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, or rape little girls, nuns and dogs in our country.

Glad Ms. Coulter has awoken to “The Root Causes Rot,” also the title of Chapter 5 in “Into The Cannibal’s Pot” (2011). Look inside.

UPDATED: Continuum Of Propaganda: Yale, U Of Missouri & YOUR Child’s School

Constitution, Education, Founding Fathers, Government, Political Correctness, Political Philosophy, Propaganda, Religion

Parents with a traditionalist, conservative or libertarian mindset please pause to carefully consider the following: If your kids are in the country’s primary, secondary and tertiary educational gulag, however well they are doing, they are being brainwashed.

The specter of frightened white men, on the nation’s campuses, resigning in fear of a mob rising in rage against … hurtful words and gestures—all constitutionally protected speech—is an organic extension of the entire American educational ethos, down to YOUR child’s school. What these affluent kids are rioting for—to silence and purge dissent and dissidents—they were taught in varying degrees in secondary, even primary schools.

You cannot counter it by yourself; you’re too busy being productive, living a good life. Pedagogues rely on your life being too chaotic to familiarize yourself with, for instance, the politicized process of textbook and course material selection that ensures your child never ever comes away believing in the correctness of the philosophy that animated the republic’s Founding Fathers, or in the originalist intention of the US Constitution. (Don’t be gulled: Kids will learn about theories of constitutional interpretation. But they’ll also come away with the distinct belief that originalism is a quaint thing reserved for kooks.)

But in order to counter the Sovietized nature of the schooling system, a parent cannot be remiss—he must be aware of it, know he is powerless to counter its complex, systemic, enervating nature alone, and access suitable resources to supplement a child’s education.

For example: Homeschool Courses by historian Tom Woods. Or this writer’s economics and other columns, always richly sourced, to be found in the Articles Archive. (Friends of liberty, please write in, here and at Facebook, with your suggestions of scholarly material. I have opened this blog post for your Comment.)

Having a child in the public schools system comes with the responsibility to know your child is being programmed and to be prepared to deprogram or unshackle him.

Consider: The University of Missouri is one of the nation’s top-tier R1 institutions. Yale needs no introduction. There is nothing unique in Mizzou’s militant mob, now joined by Yale’s equally odious protests, as these losers unite against hurtful words and unpleasant ideas. The horrifying thing is that the histrionics at Yale are the winners of tomorrow; the people who’ll man (or woman) the human resources department of America’s companies, to enforce conformity.

Fact: Yale and Mizzou students are oblivious to the cherished American tenets of freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion; diversity of thought. Why? When Allan Bloom wrote the Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students, in 1987, he addressed what he knew: the modern university.

But the rot didn’t happen there and it didn’t unfold overnight. The making of our mindless, philosophically and ethically bereft millennials happened over time.

The seeds of the bizarre contagion spreading across American campuses were sown in your kids’ schools.

UPDATE (11/14): Following the Paris attacks of 11/13, B. Hussein Obama blah-blahed about America’s flaccid affinity for liberty, equality, fraternity, the French national motto. Thanks to our public school system, your kids are none-the-wiser about the fact that America’s founding principles of life, liberty and property are the philosophical opposite of the French Revolution.

Did not the Jacobins eliminate, butcher, massacre the clergy class, to name but one kinda significant difference? Our Founders revered institutions of faith and their role in a self-governing, moral society

UPDATED: Prima Donna Paul Ryan Gets His Work-Life Balance & Much More

Business, Constitution, Government, Law, Neoconservatism, Politics

According to historian Clement Wood it is an unwritten law followed “scrupulously,” “although omitted from the Constitution,” that the Speaker of the House of Representatives possesses “the czar-like power” “to recognize only such members as he pleases, and thereby strongly to influence legislation.”

After playing hard to get, pampered prima donna Paul Ryan has agreed to be the czar-like Speaker of the House. (Were you to ask neoconservative kingpins like William Kristol and John McCain who they’d tap for that position, any position, the Ryan/Rubio duo would be the choice. Bear that in mind.)

Ryan haggled until his “conditions” were met. These were for him “to emerge as House Republicans’ unity candidate, endorsed by the three major factions of House Republicans”—the Freedom Caucus, especially—and to “have enough flexibility to spend time with his wife and kids in Wisconsin.” (TIME)

Ryan’s feminist worthy demand for work-life balance—it got the girls on CNN hot, especially Andy Cooper—really irks. Try telling a major high-tech company that you want to enjoy work/life balance, and they’ll tell you in deeds more than in words that you can have your balance, but expect to remain at the same grade till you retire (or are nudged into retirement on account of “laziness”), and don’t expect good performance reviews or raises.

The pampered parasitical political class goes on about Donald Trump tweeting late into the AM. Successful tycoons are accustomed to staying up till the wee hours.

In any event, poor baby got his wish.

Here is Ann Coulter on other unappealing aspects of Speaker-to-be Paul Ryan.

UPDATE (10/24): “Fox’s Charles Payne Calls Work-Life Balance ‘A Bunch Of Crock’ And Calls For Children To Work More.”

Dr. Pauli Tries Frothing Over Gay Marriage, But Fails

The Presidency: Powerless and Oh-So-Powerful
by Myron Pauli

The endlessly long presidential election is underway and we will be bombarded that the 2016 is the most important event in the Universe since The Big Bang. The reality is that the office of the presidency is nearly powerless in most of the “issues” being debated about and extremely powerful in issues rarely discussed.

CULTURE WAR ISSUES: These are the ones that get all the adrenaline flowing, but the truth is that presidents can do very little but utter a lot of inane, flatulent rhetoric to either make people feel good or angry. A million developing babies were slaughtered annually under Reagan and the Bushes just as under Obama and Clinton. Obama might preach against racism and how his would-be sons look like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, but the reality is that Ishmael, the Sudanese cab driver, prefers to pick up 3 elderly white woman in fur coats than 2 young black men in hoodies.

Mike Huckabee has no more divine power to eliminate homosexuality than Hillary Clinton has divine power to eliminate rape.

GOVERNMENT TAXATION AND SPENDING: I submitted a question to a candidate: “What spending programs would you actually cut to help balance the budget”? Democratic candidate Gerry Connolly actually listed a couple of tiny programs that probably totaled 0.001% of the budget but that was better than Republican Keith Fimian answering “waste.”

Federal spending, like entropy, only increases. Try to cut a frostbite clinic in Florida or a heat exhaustion clinic in Alaska or a bowling alley on a military base and see how popular that makes you. Occasional Republican rhetoric against small-ticket items like Planned Parenthood or PBS or the National Endowment for the Humanities have never amounted to an actual cut. Tax “reforms” and most domestic legislation are unfathomable gobbledygook written up by lobbyists and subjected to whimsical interpretations of bureaucrats and MIT professors like Jonathan Gruber without ever being read by Congress or the president.

The one federal program I remember getting cut was the Superconducting Supercollider primarily because: (1) the program’s $10 billion projected overrun got too large to ignore. (2) Ross Perot scared both parties the year before talking about balancing the budget. (3) Congressman Joe Barton of Texas pissed off the congressional leadership, and (4) particle physicists have a lot less clout and campaign money than the AARP, AFL-CIO, Chamber of Commerce, etc. The result was that the Higgs Bosons had to be discovered in Switzerland with neither the Bosons nor the American population caring!

MILITARY OPERATIONS: While the CIA should be an “intelligence agency,” Langley actually conducts secret military operations – secret not necessarily from the people being bombed but secret from the American voters. Torture, wiretapping, disinformation, false flag operations, lying, secret wars, foreign bribery, assassinations … – all are basically hiding “under the radar”. The civil liberties of Americans or foreigners can be violated in the name of “national security.” Warfighters can die for unknown purposes in mysterious operations. Nations and regions can be destabilized. On these issues, there is practically zero interest or discussion. Do not expect any interest in what Ben Carson or Bernie Sanders has to say (or whether they even understand) about this subterranean government which functions at the complete unfettered whim of the chief executive “decider”.

Once upon a time, there was a Czarist secret police that encouraged a coup in Serbia, assassinating an Austrian archduke, and promoted an extreme (Bolshevik) party as a means of sabotaging more moderate “liberal” opponents of the Czar. In the end, not only did the Czar lose his life, but so did hundreds of millions as a result of world wars and Communism.

Our recent presidents and their secret scheming have not been as bad, but have turned much of the Islamic and African world into a cauldron of chaotic instability. Yes, some “dead Archduke” equivalent in Kashmir might get us all vaporized 10 years from now, but, what the heck – it’s all secret so let’s froth over gay marriage instead.


Barely a Blog (BAB) contributor Myron Pauli grew up in Sunnyside Queens, went off to college in Cleveland and then spent time in a mental institution in Cambridge MA (MIT) with Benjamin Netanyahu (did not know him), and others until he was released with the “hostages” and Jimmy Carter on January 20, 1981, having defended his dissertation in nuclear physics. Most of the time since, he has worked on infrared sensors, mainly at Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC. He was NOT named after Ron Paul but is distantly related to physicist Wolftgang Pauli; unfortunately, only the “good looks” were handed down and not the brains. He writes assorted song lyrics and essays reflecting his cynicism and classical liberalism. Click on the “BAB’s A List” category to access the Pauli archive.

Benghazi: Breaking News From A Broken News Media

Government, Journalism, Left-Liberalism, Media, Military, Politics

We have breaking news, screeched CNN screech Poppy Harlow. It concerns the House Select Committee’s investigation into Benghazi. The Poppy persona had my full attention (from the kitchen sink). What was it that this illiberal oafette had discovered?

Will we finally get the sods at State to disclose when came the urgent cries for military support, in the course of the Sept. 11, 2012 attack? Would we find out who at the State Department ignored the S.O.S and issued a “Stand down” directive?

Most sentient human beings—that probably excludes liberals vested in covering up for their gal, much as it ruled out, in 2003, Republicans covering for their war criminal guy—wouldn’t mind being in the know.

Wouldn’t you say?

How silly of me to have given Harlot the time of day as a newswoman. No, CNN’s Benghazi breaking news was aimed not to update viewers about an “objective fact-finding mission”; give us information as to that “broad-based probe of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.”

Rather, what Poppy was “reporting” was but part of the drip-drip, tit-for-tat of partisan politicking.

Oh, the worthy Major Bradley Podliska appears to be looking to launch a lucrative law suit for his troubles. Parasites all.

That’s what goes for “breaking news” courtesy of a broken news media.

Check out Poppy’s astounded, breaking-news expression. In Harlow’s world, this is huge:
