We all remember the images of the charred bodies of Americans hanging from a bridge in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004. Scott Helvenston, Wesley Batalona, Jerry Zovko and Michael Teague were ambushed while working in Iraq as contractors with Blackwater. Regardless of anyone's opinions about the war, four Americans were brutally murdered by savage barbarians that, in a rational world, would be considered part of the enemy, right?

Well, here's the outrageous part. Navy SEALS recently captured the mastermind of this savage act - so far, so good - and allegedly gave the scumbag a fat lip. Now the SEALS are facing criminal charges. FOX NEWS reports:
Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named "Objective Amber," told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

Now, instead of being lauded for bringing to justice a high-value target, three of the SEAL commandos, all enlisted, face assault charges and have retained lawyers.

Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class (SO-2), is facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault.

Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, SO-2, is facing charges of dereliction of performance of duty and making a false official statement.

Petty Officer Julio Huertas, SO-1, faces those same charges and an additional charge of impediment of an investigation.
Now Fat lip boy is acting like a whiney baby to garner sympathy, which is straight out of their hand book, which we actually obtained but continue to ignore. Instead of these SEALS being treated as heroes, they're facing a court martial.

This says a lot. It is very revealing on two levels. Level 1: this liberal at the Guardian, George Monbiot, is pained to admit it but says the CRU emails are very damaging. That alone speaks volumes about the overwhelming veracity of the evidence. But in true liberal fashion, admissions of guilt and being wrong are simply too much to bear.

That leads us to the second level of astonishment. Level 2: Monbiot decides to downplay the conspiracy talk and any "gotcha" claims by man-made global warming skeptics by crafting a fictitious email and pointing to it as an example of something that would finally convince him. these revelations justify the sceptics' claims that this is "the final nail in the coffin" of global warming theory? Not at all. They damage the credibility of three or four scientists. They raise questions about the integrity of one or perhaps two out of several hundred lines of evidence. To bury man-made climate change, a far wider conspiracy would have to be revealed. Luckily for the sceptics, and to my intense disappointment, I have now been passed the damning email that confirms that the entire science of global warming is indeed a scam. Had I known that it was this easy to rig the evidence, I wouldn't have wasted years of my life promoting a bogus discipline. In the interests of open discourse, I feel obliged to reproduce it here.
Wow. Confession and humility would be nice. Instead, Monbiot actually decides to first concede what is undeniable and then appears completely unable to process the sham he has bought. Rather than let the anger humble him, he somehow finds a way to re-channel it back to the same folks who tried to help him by seeking the truth about Global Warming - it's a FRAUD.

Amazing to watch someone actually write a fictitious email and then claim that such an email would be the only thing that would make him admit he was duped. Rather than read the more than 1000 real emails available, Monbiot writes and publishes one that doesn't exist and holds it up as a reason why he won't admit the truth. Ironically, Monbiot still ends up angry at himself while taking a slap at the skeptics by living vicariously through some person that doesn't exist.

Be sure to read MONBIOT'S fake email.

I haven't posted Rasmussen's daily presidential approval index for some time because there hasn't been any drastic changes or new high / low water marks since July. However, that changed today. Obama has reached a new low in the approval index category with a -15 meaning 42% of those polled strongly DISAPPROVE of his performance while only 27% strongly APPROVE.

In addition to the passion index, Obama has matched his lowest overall approval. RASMUSSEN shows him at 54% disapproval and a new low of 45% approval.


I began this post intending to discuss an article in the New American about how the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is having to admit that the Climate Change movement is a fraud but while reading it, discovered a link to all of the emails released by the East Anglia University hacker.

Check 'em out HERE. Please let me know if you find any super juicy ones. Email me at

That said, the NEW AMERICAN article is pretty good too.
Among the IPCC elite embarrassingly, if not criminally, compromised is Phillip D. Jones, a Ph.D. climatologist at the University of East Anglia whose work figured prominently in the IPCC Third Assessment Report of 2001. Jones also contributed significantly to the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report in 2007 (AR4), but he failed to follow through when skeptical investigators asked to review raw data associated with that report. They announced intent to use UK Freedom of Information laws to obtain the data, so Jones sent the following e-mail to one of his collaborators: "Mike, Can you delete any e-mails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise.... Can you also e-mail Gene and get him to do the same?... Will be getting Caspar to do likewise." The Mike in this message is Michael Mann, professor of meteorology at Pennsylvania State University, whose influential "hockey stick" graph warning of pending global warming eco-catastrophe was found by a congressional investigation to be fraudulent. In another correspondence about AR4 labeled HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL, Jones contacted Mann regarding research critical of their global warming platform. "I can't see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report," wrote Jones. "Kevin and I will keep them out somehow — even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!"
Lies, coercion, intimidation, collusion, and destroying evidence. Go figure.

Some people simply cannot be helped. When denial reaches down to a level this low, I'm thinking Divine Intervention may be the only cure. New York TImes reporter Andrew Revkin, when confronted with the mountains of evidence coming out of the University of Anglia's Climate Research Unit (CRU) this past week, he actually attempts to spin it.

K. Daniel Glover at AIM has more:
The bias began in the headline, "Hacked E-Mail Is New Fodder for Climate Dispute." It avoided the substance of the scandal -- what the e-mails actually say -- and downplayed it to nothing more than just another he-said-she-said debate among global warming alarmists and critics.

Revkin took the same tack in the lead. The story as his biased mind saw it wasn't that scientists have been conspiring to "hide the decline" in temperatures that would undermine the theory of global warming but that the e-mails had given "skeptics" new ammunition to make that case.

Six paragraphs into the story, Revkin kicked his spin machine into overdrive. "The evidence pointing to a growing human contribution to global warming is so widely accepted that the hacked material is unlikely to erode the overall argument," he wrote.
Translation: the fact that the hand of the perpetrator was actually caught in the cookie jar is not enough to convince those who believe cookies aren't being stolen.
