More evidence of deception as White House contradicts president's statement...

The President clearly misled the American people with this claim, because if Obama’s Rose Garden speech was indeed the White House position, it did not inform any subsequent statement by the White House press office — and was even directly contradicted by his own spokesman several days later.

On September 20 — eight days after Obama claims to have called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror” — Jay Carney affirmed to reporters that the White House had never called it “a terrorist attack.”

Fifty years on, what have we learned?....Nothing!.....But we have a Nobel Peace Prize

The European Union should be discerning about what lessons to take from history.

The view ahead for the European Union is bleak and scary, so looking back is often a strong temptation. The past offers comfort, consolation and possibly even inspiration. This week, the EU was wallowing in memories of the single market's origins, in a bid to breathe new life into the 20-year-old's enervated body.

The announcement on Friday that this year's Nobel Prize for Peace was being awarded to the European Union was another invitation to retrospection. As people cast around to search for plausible reasons why (this year of all years?) the awards committee had chosen the EU, they took comfort in that well-worn line that the EU had provided peace in Europe for more than 50 years (if one overlooks the shame of the former Yugoslavia). The line is true, as far as it goes. The EU put to rest the ghosts of successive Franco-German wars, and provided a model of economic and political co-operation between parliamentary democracies that proved strong enough to outlast the communist era.

The harsh truth, though, is that for the EU past achievements are no guarantee of future success. Nor even of future relevance.

Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Obama’s Homeland Youth

October 7, 2012. Vicksburg. The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.

On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing.
