Reno Air Races Disaster


[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QZnW-YNu0A]
RENO, Nev. (AP) — As thousands watched in horror, a World War II-era fighter plane competing in a Nevada event described as a car race in the sky suddenly pitched upward, rolled and did a nose-dive toward the crowded grandstand.
The plane, flown by a 74-year-old veteran Hollywood stunt pilot, then slammed into the concrete in a section of VIP box seats and blew to pieces in front the pilot’s family and a tight-knit group of friends who attend the annual event in Reno.
“It absolutely disintegrated,” said Tim O’Brien of Grass Valley Calif., who attends the races every year. “I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Three people were killed and more than 50 injured amid a horrific scene strewn with smoking debris.
Authorities say it appears a mechanical failure with the P-51 Mustang – a class of fighter plane that can fly in excess of 500 mph – was to blame. Some credit the pilot, Jimmy Leeward, with preventing the crash from being far more deadly.
Leeward was among those killed.

Wayne Madsen on the Murder of Navy SEAL Team 6


On August 6, Taliban “rebels” in Afghanistan shot down a U.S. military Chinook helicopter. All 30 Americans on board were killed.
Among them were 22 members of the Navy SEAL Team Six who, on May 2, 2011, had assassinated purportedly Osama bin Laden in his secret compound in Abbotabad, Pakistan. News of Osama’s death instantly boosted Obama’s flagging poll numbers.
The Navy SEAL is the elite of our military’s elite corps. The SEALs have the respect and admiration of even fighter pilots, who themselves are elite Top Guns.
SEAL Team Six is the informal name of the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG), commonly known as DEVGRU — one of the United States’ four secretive counter-terrorism and Special Mission Units.
According to Wikipedia, “The vast majority of information about DEVGRU is highly classified, and details of its activities are not commented on by either the White House or the Department of Defense.” The Navy SEAL is scrupulous in keeping confidential both its operations as well as the identities of SEAL members. So it is curious, to say the least, that the Obama White House is actively helping Hollywood with a movie on Team 6’s takedown of Osama, which undoubtedly will be in every multiplex cinema in America just in time for the 2012 presidential election.
The crash of that Chinook helicopter is being met with skepticism, and for good reason. For examples, see here and here.
Now, longtime D.C. investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, himself a former U.S. Navy officer, is weighing in. Here’s an excerpt from his exclusive-to-subscribers Wayne Madsen Report (WMR), “Obama welcomes home SEAL Team bodies after the SEALS became a ‘problem’,” August 10-11, 2011:

WMR has learned from Navy SEAL Team 2 sources that the Chinook was flying under prescribed normal transit altitudes, which made it vulnerable to an attack from a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG). SEAL Team 2 is based in Little Creek and Dam, Neck, Virginia, where many of the dead SEAL Team 6 members were also based. The sources claim that many SEALs believe the SEAL Team 6 members were sacrificed for political reasons because they “knew too much” about the Abbotabad raid. Moreover, SEAL Team 2 members believe their comrades were eliminated by CIA assets operating in the area in an effort to eliminate witnesses to the actual events that occurred in Abbotabad. The bitterness of SEAL team personnel over what happened with the Chinook is intense since an entire unit of their friends was almost completely wiped out.

Killing Osama: Truth or Fiction?

Photoillustration by John Ritter (The New Yorker)


The New Yorker magazine of August 8, 2011, has a long, supposedly true account of the elite Navy SEALs Team 6’s assassination of Osama bin Laden. The article, “Getting Bin Laden,” was written by Nicholas Schmidle who, in the words of New Yorker, “has worked the past two months securing dozens of separate source reports to weave the below narrative.”
The article begins as follows:

Shortly after eleven o’clock on the night of May 1st, two MH-60 Black Hawk helicopters lifted off from Jalalabad Air Field, in eastern Afghanistan, and embarked on a covert mission into Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden. Inside the aircraft were twenty-three Navy SEALs from Team Six, which is officially known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, or DEVGRU. A Pakistani-American translator, whom I will call Ahmed, and a dog named Cairo—a Belgian Malinois—were also aboard. It was a moonless evening, and the helicopters’ pilots, wearing night-vision goggles, flew without lights over mountains that straddle the border with Pakistan. Radio communications were kept to a minimum, and an eerie calm settled inside the aircraft.

[…] The SEALs’ destination was a house in the small city of Abbottabad, which is about a hundred and twenty miles across the Pakistan border. Situated north of Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital, Abbottabad is in the foothills of the Pir Panjal Range, and is popular in the summertime with families seeking relief from the blistering heat farther south. Founded in 1853 by a British major named James Abbott, the city became the home of a prestigious military academy after the creation of Pakistan, in 1947. According to information gathered by the Central Intelligence Agency, bin Laden was holed up on the third floor of a house in a one-acre compound just off Kakul Road in Bilal Town, a middle-class neighborhood less than a mile from the entrance to the academy. If all went according to plan, the SEALs would drop from the helicopters into the compound, overpower bin Laden’s guards, shoot and kill him at close range, and then take the corpse back to Afghanistan.

The article then goes on to describe how the CIA under Leon Panetta tracked down bin Laden and how Obama was involved each step of the way, blah, blah, blah, culminating in this account:

Nine years, seven months, and twenty days after September 11th, an American was a trigger pull from ending bin Laden’s life. The first round, a 5.56-mm. bullet, struck bin Laden in the chest. As he fell backward, the SEAL fired a second round into his head, just above his left eye. On his radio, he reported, “For God and country—Geronimo, Geronimo, Geronimo.” After a pause, he added, “Geronimo E.K.I.A.”—“enemy killed in action.”

Hearing this at the White House, Obama pursed his lips, and said solemnly, to no one in particular, “We got him.” […] In the Situation Room, Obama said, “I’m not going to be happy until those guys get out safe.”

That was the moment when Nicholas Schmidle lost all credibility for me. Yeah, right, Obama wasn’t “going to be happy until those guys get out safe.” Sure….
To read the very very very long article for yourself, go HERE.
The article is already getting flak. Schmidle said in an e-mail to the Huffington Post, August 11, that “at no point did we mislead the reader into thinking that I had, in fact, interviewed SEALs directly.”
Hmmm. Then who are those “dozens of separate source reports” which Schmidle used “to weave together” his narrative that contains all kinds of precise details about SEALs Team 6 — some or all of whom are now dead when their Chinook helicopter was shot down by the Talibans in Afghanistan? How convenient that dead men tell no tales….
Nicholas Schmidle currently is the Bernard L. Schwartz Fellow at the New America Foundation. According to Cliff Kincaid, editor of the AIM (Accuracy In Media) Report, the New America Foundation’s Middle East Initiative is run by Daniel Levy, a founder of the George Soros-funded J Street group.
I think Schmidle is angling for the job as scriptwriter for the planned Hollywood movie on Team 6’s takedown of Osama. Reportedly, the U.S.’s top brass is giving filmmakers the inside scoop to all things Navy SEAL for the movie.

Newsweek Going After Michele Bachmann

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, a TEA Party favorite, is one of the 66 House Republicans who refused to vote for Obama’s disastrous debt deal, aka the Budget Control Addicted to Debt Act of 2011. The passage of that act immediately led S&P to downgrade America’s credit rating.
Bachmann is also polling well among Republican voters. And so, of course, like a pack of ravenous wolves, the Left are already pouncing on her, with Hollywood’s pro-gay brigade leading the way.
Now the MSM are joining the jihad.
The upcoming edition of Newsweek magazine has a cover story on Michele Bachmann titled, “The Queen of Rage.” This is the photo of Bachmann which Newsweek has on its cover.
Tell me if you don’t think she looks just a tad crazy.

Bachmann made the mistake of letting Newsweek‘s photographer Chris Buck take the picture.
When will Conservatives ever learn that the MSM are not our friends; will never be objective, even less our friends; and will do their utmost to make Conservatives look bad.
If you want a friend, get a dog!
H/t beloved fellow Siegfried.

Actor Peter Fonda Calls Obama a Traitor

Actor Peter Fonda, brother of the commie-loving Jane, to my knowledge had never been particularly political.

But he’s become political, late in life at age 71.
At the Cannes film festival yesterday, Peter Fonda called Obama a “traitor”!
~Eowyn
Here’s the account by Yahoo News, May 18, 2011:

CANNES, France (AFP) – Peter Fonda launched a four-letter attack on US President Barack Obama at the Cannes film festival on Wednesday, calling him a traitor over the handling of the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.
The star of the 1969 road movie “Easy Rider” was in Cannes for the premiere of “The Big Fix” by Rebecca and Josh Tickell, the only feature documentary in the official selection at the Cannes film festival this year.
Fonda — a keen environmentalist and co-producer of the film which centres on the explosion of the BP oil rig Deepwater Horizon, the ensuing spill and its consequences — accused Washington of trying to gag reporting on the issue.
“I sent an email to President Obama saying, ‘You are a f(expletive) traitor,’ using those words… ‘You’re a traitor, you allowed foreign boots on our soil telling our military — in this case the coastguard — what they can and could not do, and telling us, the citizens of the United States, what we could or could not do’.”
Fonda, who said he sent the email last week, appears in “The Big Fix” trying to get on to Louisiana beaches to assess the impact of the biggest oil spill in US history, only to be turned away by BP clean-up personnel.
Speaking at a press event at the American Pavilion to promote the film, Fonda denounced BP as “a bunch of Brits — I thought we kicked them out a long time ago. They tried to get back in in 1812, but they didn’t make it.”

New Jobs Created Are In Low-Pay Industries

Flipper & Hamburger


Last Friday, the Obama administration trumpeted that the economy is reviving because of the alleged decline in unemployment and concomitant increase in the number of new jobs. But according to Gallup, the U.S. unemployment rate actually rose to 10.3% at the end of February. Worse still, most of the new jobs are in the low-pay “hamburger flipper” sector.
Here are excerpts from Zachary Roth’s March 9, 2011 article for Yahoo! news, Jobs Returning – But Good Ones Not So Much

Lower-wage industries — things like retail and food preparation — accounted for 23% of the jobs lost during the recession, but 49% of the jobs gained over the last year, a recent study (pdf) by the National Employment Law Program found. Higher-wage industries, by contrast, accounted for 40% of the jobs lost, but just 14% of the jobs gained. In other words, low paying jobs are increasing as a percentage of total jobs, while high-paying jobs are on the decline.
• Meanwhile, the percentage of those working who have part-time jobs and want full-time ones surged in mid-February to 19.6% — almost as high as it was a year ago before the recovery began, according to Gallup numbers. That suggests, of course, that a large number of the new jobs created over the last year are part-time.
• And a recent Wall Street Journal analysis found that even though productivity rose 5.2% from mid 2009 to the end of 2010, wages increased by just 0.3%. That means only 6% of productivity gains were shared with workers. In past recoveries, that figure has averaged 58%. This time around, far more of the gains went to shareholders, in the form of profits, which are at record levels.

In other words:

  1. The Obama administration’s rosy picture about the economic recovery is a lie.
  2. The structural change in the U.S. economy which has been going on for some time now even before the present recession/depression struck in 2007 is real and our government is unable/unwilling to do anything about it. The structural changes include:
    1. The outsourcing export and loss of manufacturing jobs;
    2. The movement down of those workers to lower-paying low-skill low-education “hamburger flipper” jobs; and
    3. The socio-political consequence is a diminishing middle class that bodes ill for democracy’s future
  3. Conservatives shy away from this, but the miniscule 0.3% wage increase despite a 5.2% increase in labor productivity means that American workers are being screwed by their corporate masters. Remember what the late Christopher Lasch warned us in his prescient book, Revolt of the Elites and the Betrayal of Democracy:

There is a new global elite — comprised of multinational business corporations, Hollywood and pop music, news media, and professionals (bankers, traders, investors, lawyers,) — who are not nationalists because they make their living in/from a global market. The Americans among them have U.S. citizenship but don’t really care about America or the American people. They have more in common with their cohorts across the world. That is where their hearts are, and it’s not America.
