Another Obama Triumph

Under Obama's unique leadership style, Iraq is toast, Syria is becoming toast, Libya is a burnt offering, Russia has pried the Crimea out of Ukraine and more Russian troops (while on vacation of course * wink, wink* no official invasion was sanctioned *cough*) are in the process of slicing off another chunk of east Ukraine; to do this the Russians are using subtle tactics not unlike using a tire iron to cut through a bratwurst. Union Army Civil War surgeons did less damage.

And now, in a show of international cooperation, Putin is making threatening noises at the Baltic states and Poland.
RIGA, Latvia — In a significant move to deter possible Russian aggression in Europe, the Pentagon is poised to store battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other heavy weapons for as many as 5,000 American troops in several Baltic and Eastern European countries, American and allied officials say.

The proposal, if approved, would represent the first time since the end of the Cold War that the United States has stationed heavy military equipment in the newer NATO member nations in Eastern Europe that had once been part of the Soviet sphere of influence. Russia’s annextion of Crimea and the war in eastern Ukraine have caused alarm and prompted new military planning in NATO capitals.
So, it's a proposal. It would take a little time to move enough heavy armor into Latvia or Poland to pose any kind of deterrent. And Russia could keep moving forces around just to make NATO forces (Americans) expend lots of energy following Russia movements; like a 60 ton, 120mm game of three-card Monte.

In any event, it's probably just a ploy to see how the Russians react when America yells "Boo."

It would be the most prominent of a series of moves the United States and NATO have taken to bolster forces in the region and send a clear message of resolve to allies and to Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, that the United States would defend the alliance’s members closest to the Russian frontier.
Russian bombers are regularly penetrating American and British air defense zones, Russian submarines keep popping up in Swedish bathtubs. I don't think talk of a tank chess game will cause Putin to lose any sleep. He's been a busy, busy boy and Obama's international golf game hasn't improved; he's is still shooting way over par. He has been out foxed, out maneuvered, out witted and out classed since day one. I don't expect any changes.

Accomplice To Dannemora Murderers' Escape Arrested

From Yahoo News:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — A worker at an upstate New York maximum-security prison was arraigned Friday night on charges she helped two convicted killers escape last weekend.

Prison tailor shop instructor Joyce Mitchell, 51, was arraigned on the felony charge of promoting prison contraband and misdemeanor count of criminal facilitation. Her lawyer, Keith Bruno, entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.

Mitchell is accused of befriending inmates David Sweat and Richard Matt at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora and giving them contraband.

She entered the courtroom with her hands cuffed in front of her, clad in jeans and a green top and looking terrified. She did not speak. She was ordered held in jail on $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bond on felony count and is due back in court Monday morning.
Looks like our tailor shop instructor will be using her sewing skills to redecorate her own cell.

Seriously, what was she thinking when she agreed to help this garbage escape from prison?  One guy shot a cop multiple times and ran him over and the other mook tortured and dismembered his boss and then a year later stove some other guy's head in: "Yep - I wanna help these poor misguided men." She had to be getting boned by one or both of these idiots.

For What It's Worth - Again

I know this was posted a few weeks ago, but paranoia runs deep and I am starting to feel like I did years ago. I know what's happening here. I know where Obama and Congress is taking us and I have no desire to go there. Nothing good will come from any branch of the federal government and a lot of the states are no better.

We are seeing the fruits of decades-old efforts to bring the Beast to power. The destabilization of our country is one of the midpoints after they have destroyed our educational and criminal justice systems and degraded our moral standards. There is no shame anymore, only the media's self-serving outrage at perceived or contrived offenses. Shameful acts that were once hidden in shadow are now boldly proclaimed in public and heralded as good, as the new "normal."

Matthew 24:12, "And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold."

Lawlessness is self-indulgence, an expression of self love, or narcissism, where a person holds him/herself above the law and does whatever he or she feels is right .... or because it just feels good to scratch a hellish itching.

We see this all over the nation today and I fear it will only get worse. And this is the spirit of anti-Christ at work. This is the spirit that infests Obama and his minions. This is the spirit that infests liberal churches who ignore scripture and instead substitute modern, "caring" doctrines as moral standards.

For the record. No, Obama is not the anti-Christ; he is controlled by it. He has managed to unleash the demonic forces of Islam who now terrorize millions and have toppled nations. Anti-Christ will use this and other means to inspire fear and uncertainty for this will lead people to believe in a lie.

I say again, it will get worse. Lawlessness will increase throughout the world until people cry out for someone to keep them safe, someone to end the endless conflicts that ravages so many nations. That's when the Beast shall take over.

Read Matthew 24. It is a survival guide for what will happen to the world once the Rapture occurs.

I'll stop now before they come and put me away.

Dallas Police Headquarters Attacked

Michael Conrad gives good advice

The Obama administration's race baiting and faux black victim worship is working as planned. People are going after cops in a fashion unseen in almost 50 years. They have spawned a new generation of imitation Black Panther/Weatherman terrorists.

The Dallas police headquarters was just attacked with automatic weapons and IEDs. Incredibly, no officers were killed or injured. There is no word on the racial profile of the suspects, but the atmosphere to encourage this type of violence has been carefully prepared by those who wish to destroy this nation from within.
DALLAS (AP) -- Multiple gunmen toting automatic weapons opened fire on officers outside Dallas Police headquarters early Saturday morning, before one man fled the scene being chased by police in what witnesses described as an armored van, according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown.

[..]Brown said, based on witness accounts, as many as four suspects may have been involved in the original shooting, including some who may have been strategically positioned at elevated positions. Police could not immediately confirm how many shooters were involved and where any additional suspects may be located.

Actual Shooting Video was obtained from

Meanwhile, police said they also found two explosive devices near police headquarters, but all suspected packages have been cleared. Nearby residents were evacuated as a precaution.

With the heightened threat awareness, there's going to be some twitchy police trigger fingers out there. Every cop I run into and have a chat with, when we part it's always -"keep your head down" or "be careful brother."

I just hope and pray that nothing happens to escalate the situation. The race pimps are primed to take advantage of every questionable police action and Obama's racist DoJ is ready to support them. And if there are no police incidents, they'll make one up. Like the liberals say, a crisis is a terrible thing to waste; now is not the time to turn down the heat while the pot is boiling.

I agree with my wife; it's as if evil has taken over the country.

A Makeover Won't Be Enough

Hillary Clinton is trying to re-invent herself. Good luck on that kiddo.
She's got more baggage than Imelda Marcos had shoes.
Almost exactly two months after Hillary Rodham Clinton’s official announcement that she’s running for president, she will give her first “official campaign announcement speech,” on June 13, according to her Twitter account.

In other words, the Clinton campaign wants a do-over. Her first rollout was the most disastrous nonfatal presidential campaign debut in modern memory, so she wants another.

[...]Worse, the public is souring on her, like a carton of milk left out in the sun. More Americans now view her unfavorably rather than favorably (50 percent to 46 percent), her worst polling performance in 14 years. Fifty-seven percent believe she is untrustworthy, and fewer than half (47 percent) said she cares about people like them. Remember back in 2008 when her image took a beating in her bruising primary fight with Barack Obama? Her image is worse today.
The only way she can win is if the Dems steal the ballot box. And not just a little horse play either. They'll have to stuff it like a Christmas goose.

RIP Christopher Lee

One of the true bad asses of Hollywood, Christopher Lee has passed on. He was a member of the British Special Air Services in WWII, spoke six languages, sang opera, and played in more movie roles than any other actor - something like over 270.

This says something special about the man.
The director of LOTR:Return of the King, asked Lee how a man sounds when he is stabbed in the back:
According to Peter Jackson, Christopher Lee then began talking about “some clandestine part of World War II,” although, as always, he withheld details. Jackson had wanted him to shout in pain when he was stabbed. Lee explained that when you are stabbed, “the breath is driven out of your lungs,” and he gave a good impression of what it would actually sound like—more like a strangled gasp.

He was 93.

The Case Against The Baltimore Cops Grows Weaker By The Day

From Western Journalism:
Evidence of apparent incompetence and misbehavior continues to pile up in the case of the “Baltimore Six” — not evidence against the cops involved in the police-custody death of Freddie Gray, but against the state’s attorney prosecuting the case. On the heels of the embarrassing disclosure that Marilyn Mosby filed her motion for a gag order in the wrong court — an attempt to keep defense attorneys from talking to the media that was denied — comes word that it was Mosby herself who directed police to crack down on drug dealing in the very neighborhood where Gray was apprehended.

In other words, Marilyn Mosby’s prior statements that the Baltimore cops who picked up Gray after he ran from them made an unlawful arrest, is contradicted by the fact that it was she who ordered the police crackdown on drug dealing in the high-crime area where the arrest took place.
This moron, no ... this lying sack of crap orders cops to aggressively enforce the law at a certain location and then indicts them for doing just that and then tries to hide it. Someone leaked the emails and departmental memos now she's suddenly camera shy.

And she's still trying to gag the autopsy report so no one will know for sure what killed the idiot in the paddy wagon.
Just last week, Western Journalism reported that State’s Attorney Mosby was discovered trying to keep Freddie Gray’s autopsy report under wraps. The news sparked criticism among those who believe the autopsy could offer evidence contrary to Mosby’s account of events that led to serious charges against the six police officers.

Are You Happy?

As cited by the Daily Mail, scientists have cracked the happy code.
[...]Dr Amit Sood, who led the research, says 40 to 50 per cent of your happiness depends on the choices you make and where you place your focus each day.

'You can choose to live focusing on what is right and beautiful in your life,' said Dr Sood who is the author of a new book, 'The Mayo Clinic Handbook for Happiness: A Four-Step Plan for Resilient Living.
Practices include doing something known as the 5-3-2 technique.

[...]This involves making your first thought in the morning about five people that you're grateful to have in your life.

For the first three minutes you meet your family, meet them like a long lost friend, Dr Sood advises.

And he says, for the first two seconds when you see another person, send a silent 'I wish you well'.

The second step in the book's plan is building emotional resilience through gratitude, compassion, acceptance and forgiveness.
So who's happy?
Israel is one of the top five happiest countries in the world, according to a new Better Life Index report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

“Israelis are more satisfied with their lives than the OECD average. When asked to rate their general satisfaction with life on a scale from 0 to 10, Israelis gave it a 7.4 grade, higher than the OECD average of 6.6,” reads the report.

Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, and Finland took the top four spots in global happiness. The United States did not crack the top 10 for the fifth consecutive year.

Apprehensive In Albany

Our thug governor is rumored to be nervous in his service to the State of New York as a federal prosecutor quietly draws the net tighter and tighter.

From the NY Post:
Cuomo increasingly ‘paranoid’ over corruption probe

Paralysis and “paranoia’’ brought on by US Attorney Preet Bharara’s ongoing corruption probe have come to define Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his administration with just seven days to go in the legislative session, a worried Cuomo ally and others have told The Post.“Something is wrong. The place is paralyzed and the governor is not right. He seems frantic at times. He’s not acting the way he normally did,’’ said the ally, a prominent Cuomo political backer and longtime associate who has contact with the governor’s administration on a near-daily basis.

[...]Bharara’s investigation of Albany corruption that led to the indictment of two leaders of the Legislature earlier this year “badly shook’’ Cuomo because, he said, “nobody on the inside doubts that Bharara’s ultimate target is the governor himself.’’

The insider’s assessment of Cuomo’s peculiar behavior was echoed by others close to the governor’s office. One described Cuomo as “kind of lost, kind of out of it.’
A man running scared, panicky, makes mistakes. This should be fun to watch as Preet turns the heat up through leaks to the press. Just a week ago the Post ran this commentary:
US Attorney Preet Bharara moved “a giant step closer” to Gov. Andrew Cuomo late last week with an indictment that alleges insurance exec Anthony Bonomo, a top Cuomo contributor whom the governor made chairman of the New York Racing Association, gave a lucrative no-show job to state Sen. Dean Skelos’ son, sources have told The Post.

“Bonomo is Cuomo’s guy, and he wouldn’t offer anything to Skelos’ kid without first making sure it was OK with the governor or his people,’’ said a senior state Democrat.

“The fact that Bonomo, like Dorego, is cooperating with Bharara brings the whole investigation a giant step closer to Cuomo,’’ the Democrat added, referring to Charles Dorego, a top official at Cuomo megacontributor Leonard Litwin’s Glenwood Management.

Murderers Escape Maximum Security Prison - Update

 Richard Matt                        David Sweat

Two convicted murderers have escaped from the Clinton Correctional facility. The two men, Richard Matt and David Sweat, were discovered missing Saturday morning, 5 Jun 15. They used power tools to escape the maximum-security prison located near the Canadian border in Upstate NY, about a 4 hour drive from Syracuse. Both men are serving life sentences without parole.

David Sweat murdered a Broome County sheriff's deputy, Kevin Tarsia, in 2002. Dep. Tarsia was killed when he approached Sweat and his two  accomplices after they burglarized a gun shop.

Richard Matt is serving 25 years to life for the beating death of North Tonawanda businessman William Rickerson. Matt tortured and beat the 76-year-old before killing him.

Of course the there is incompete information as the investigation continues, but the question springs to mind, HTF did these two mooks use power tools to bust through steel reinforced concrete walls?

My two cents: someone was paid to look the other way.

They cut through a big steel pipe and crawled inside it until they found an access cover to escape through. More here.

What Happens When The Machines Get A Lot Smarter Than Humans?

For the first time ever a computer has managed to develop a new scientific theory using only its artificial intelligence, and with no help from human beings.

Computer scientists and biologists from Tufts University programmed the computer so that it was able to develop a theory independently when it was faced with a scientific problem. The problem they chose was one that has been puzzling biologists for 120 years. The genes of sliced-up flatworms are capable of regenerating in order to form new organisms -- this is a long-documented phenomenon, but scientists have been mystified for years over exactly what happens to the cells to make this possible.

By presenting the computer with this problem, however, it was able to reverse engineer a solution that could explain the mechanism of the process, known as planaria. The details discovered by the computer have been published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology, along with the artificial intelligence method used to develop the theory.
Actually the title to this article was a bit misleading. Programmers wrote code to have the computer run a series of models designed to reploccate the processes required for planaria. The computer could not do this on its own. But nonetheless, it was a very interesting experiment. Computers are at their best when they are utilized for their speed in running repetitive calculations.

[...]What the computer discovered was that the process requires three known molecules and two proteins that were previously unknown. This discovery, says Levin, "represents the most comprehensive model of planarian regeneration found to date".

"One of the most remarkable aspects of the project was that the model it found was not a hopelessly-tangled network that no human could actually understand, but a reasonably simple model that people can readily comprehend," he adds. All this suggests to me that artificial intelligence can help with every aspect of science, not only data mining but also inference of meaning of the data,"
Will machines get smarter than humans? Hard to say. They are not intuitive and are not capable of inspiration. They get to achieve results by hammering away at the same problem over and over until the desired result is reached. They are only as good as the program that drives them. Can a program duplicate these qualities? I doubt it, not for some time anyway.
