Quote du jour

Maybe the Russians are behind the WikiLeak hacks of Democrat e-mails, possibly to influence the 2016 presidential election. I’m not convinced of this. I’m more concerned that these constant leaks of Democratic e-mails demonstrate that Democratic officials appear to have no understanding of the need for Internet security. This makes me wonder if John Podesta’s e-mail password is “password.” These are the people Clinton will be giving senior jobs with high-level security clearances. That is the real security scandal that no one is talking about.

"Go Home, Newt, You're Drunk!"


I really wasn't going to comment on this, but I've seen a flurry of opinions about Newt's "slapdown" of Megyn Kelly, or how "hypocritical" she was to have, on at least one occasion, posed alluringly and then obsess over Trump's alleged sexual peccadilloes.




Give me a break! For the record, I have been a long time fan and defender of Newt. I admired his Contract with America, I defended him over the gross distortions of allegations against him supposedly handing his ex-wife divorce papers on her hospital sick bed, and I would have voted for him for president, if he'd had the fire in the belly required to capture the 2012 nomination. In that 2012 debate when he stood up to the media bias of the questioning, I cheered him for his backbone. His exchange with Megyn Kelly? Not so much.

In all the years I've followed his career, this moment was IMHO, his least dignified, most disappointing and most embarrassing moment. Newt has a reputation as a historian and a shrewd political strategist. Both true. He typically has the ability to calmly and rationally dissect whatever arguments are presented to him. This occasion... not so much.

The first four and a half minutes are a pretty benign back and forth, but around the 4:48 minute mark, things begin to get heated. Kelly is pressing Newt to admit, in the face of numerous polls, that his candidate may be slipping (alternate universes aside). The supposed slide timed to the allegations surrounding what he may or may not have said to a beauty queen (exacerbated by his dwelling on the story for days), and the crass remarks on the audio leaked from Access Hollywood.

MK: "If Trump is a sexual predator, that is..."

NG (interrupting): :He not a sexual predator! You can't say that! You cannot defend that statement!"

MK (Crosstalk): "Okay, that's your opinion, I'm not taking a position on it."

Let's stop it there for a second. Newt has just compared Fox News and the rest of the MSM with Pravda and Izvestia, the old Soviet organs of propaganda. Newt can be excused for a little over the top hyperbole every now and then, but there was a head of steam building up here. When Ms. Kelly began, "If Trump is a sexual predator..." He could have let her finish her sentence to see if it was a question or an if/then proposition, and the logician in him could have calmly stated that he rejected the premise or supposition that Trump was a sexual predator based on whatever evidence he wished to assert. Instead, he chose the nuclear option, and IMHO melted down as he accused her personally of bias that she had not really shown.

NG: "I am sick and tired of people like you using language that is inflammatory that is not true."

Whether or not it is true, or was true at some time doesn't become any "truthier" by getting angry about it and wagging his finger like a latter day Bill Clinton. He could have let her finish her point and calmly chided her for using inflammatory language if he believed that was the case. Certainly, based on the audio tape that came out in Trump's own words, a case could be made that Trump at the very least joked and bragged about sexually assaulting women, whether he actually did or not.

A case could also be made that Hilary Clinton was an enabler for Bill Clinton to do far worse things to women and that Hillary tried to destroy the lives and reputations of the women victims of her husband in ways Trump has not been accused of.

NG: "When you used the words, you took a position."

If you were listening to her argument, Mr. Speaker, and if you were using your head for something other than a hat rack, you might have handled this differently. You see what I did there?  I used the word "if", not to say Newt definitively did not hear her argument, but that the possibility existed that he did not hear her argument. According to Newt, one cannot even admit the possibility of something being true without 'taking sides'.

NG: "You want to go back through the tapes of your show recently? You are fascinated with sex and you don''t care abut public policy"

Here, it seems to me, Newt has slipped from hyperbole to full on tin-foil hat crazy. Now I am not a regular viewer of the Kelly File, but those times I have seen it, I have seen nothing to back up that assertion. Nothing. Perhaps Mr. Gingrich will do us the favor of pointing out exactly how much air time on the Kelly File was devoted to sex and how much to "public policy"?  Forgive me if I don't hold my breath waiting

Gingrich's defense of Trump then devolves into "look how bad Bill Clinton is", which, however true it may be is not a defense for Donald Trump. Gingrich's childish repetition of "I want to hear you use the words: Bill Clinton sexual predator. I dare you!" is worthy of grade schools everywhere.

Not his finest moment. Megyn Kelly conducted herself professionally. Newt may be auditioning to write Trump's Twitter feed.  Advantage, Kelly.

Can You Spot the Differences?


Last month, over at Chant du Départ (hey, it must be classy...it's French!!!), Old AF Sarge posted a book report on "A Higher Call".
He posted a picture of the painting based on the incident (this week's header) and the book cover, which appeared at first glance to be the same painting. But it wasn't. The OCD in me noticed that the painting above the book jacket had at least seven differences in the two planes between them. Later I found a couple more.

So, if you have some time on your hands and nothing better to do, see if you can spot the differences between the painting and the book cover. I'll post an update later with the nine I spotted. Good luck and good hunting!

Update: I just spotted another one or two (depending on how you're counting) when I was even trying! So, there should be at least ten or eleven differences to spot!

Medal of Honor

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Staff Sergeant Drew Dennis Dix


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. S/Sgt. Dix distinguished himself by exceptional heroism while serving as a unit adviser. Two heavily armed Viet Cong battalions attacked the Province capital city of Chau Phu resulting in the complete breakdown and fragmentation of the defenses of the city. S/Sgt. Dix, with a patrol of Vietnamese soldiers, was recalled to assist in the defense of Chau Phu. Learning that a nurse was trapped in a house near the center of the city, S/Sgt. Dix organized a relief force, successfully rescued the nurse, and returned her to the safety of the Tactical Operations Center.
Being informed of other trapped civilians within the city, S/Sgt. Dix voluntarily led another force to rescue 8 civilian employees located in a building which was under heavy mortar and small-arms fire. S/Sgt. Dix then returned to the center of the city. Upon approaching a building, he was subjected to intense automatic rifle and machinegun fire from an unknown number of Viet Cong. He personally assaulted the building, killing 6 Viet Cong, and rescuing 2 Filipinos.
The following day S/Sgt. Dix, still on his own volition, assembled a 20-man force and though under intense enemy fire cleared the Viet Cong out of the hotel, theater, and other adjacent buildings within the city. During this portion of the attack, Army Republic of Vietnam soldiers inspired by the heroism and success of S/Sgt. Dix, rallied and commenced firing upon the Viet Cong. S/Sgt. Dix captured 20 prisoners, including a high ranking Viet Cong official. He then attacked enemy troops who had entered the residence of the Deputy Province Chief and was successful in rescuing the official's wife and children.
S/Sgt. Dix's personal heroic actions resulted in 14 confirmed Viet Cong killed in action and possibly 25 more, the capture of 20 prisoners, 15 weapons, and the rescue of the 14 United States and free world civilians. The heroism of S/Sgt. Dix was in the highest tradition and reflects great credit upon the U.S. Army.


S/Sgt. Dix: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.
