End of Year Insanity

Insanity by Wladyslaw Podkowinski

Insanity is not delineated by numbers on a calender. It carries over day to day, year to year.

Of course the 'crotch bomber' story is the pinnacle of engineered insanity for this end of year and it's well covered elsewhere so we'll take a look at some other American and world oddities.

Rick Warren is whining and begging for money to keep his empire and lifestyle going. That big electric bill is eating away at the bucks for the food pantry and charities.
Lake Forest megachurch calls on followers to donate almost $1 million in 48 hours

Pastor Rick Warren, the Orange County evangelist who generated controversy for giving the invocation at President Obama’s inauguration, has called on followers to donate nearly $1 million in the next two days to make up for a shortfall in donations.

Late Wednesday night, Warren posted a letter on his Saddleback Church website telling congregants that Christmas offerings were far less than anticipated.

“This is an urgent letter unlike any I've written in 30 years,” Warren wrote. “On the last weekend of 2009, our total offerings were less than half of what we normally receive -- leaving us $900,000 in the red for the year, unless you help make up the difference today and tomorrow.”

No discussion of insanity would be complete without a 'what the hell is Israel doing?'

Yemen, Yemen, Yemen
Obama administration prepares public opinion for attack on Yemen

The CIA/Mossad front IntelCenter is selling Al-Qaeda Activity in Yemen Wall Chart v1.3 and a Book Covering All Al-Qaeda Affiliated Attacks in Yemen Between 2000-2007 and the most useful Jihadi Logo Identification Wall Chart V1.1 and Mujahideen Youth Movement Leadership Breakout Wall Chart V1.0
If you hurry before they are sold out you can put these charts up on your living room wall and have a neighborhood watch meeting. You never know, the kids next door could be inspired to blow their balls off and take you with them.

Speaking of the CIA ... the real terrorists get a taste of their own medicine.
The CIA said seven of its employees were killed and six others wounded in Wednesday's suicide bombing at a base in Khost province in eastern Afghanistan. One of them was the chief of the CIA's post there.
You might think Blackwater would be a target. Aren't they terrorists too?
Blackwater Eyes Afghan Contractor Surge
As the United States builds up its military presence in Afghanistan, private contractors mercenaries are flocking there in even greater numbers. And Xe, the company formerly known as Blackwater, is in the hunt to get a share of the new work. According to a report last week from the Congressional Research Service, there were about 64,000 uniformed U.S. troops in Afghanistan in September and 104,101 military contractors -- 62 percent of the Defense Department work force there. The Obama administration's planned deployment of 30,000 more troops in the coming months could require as many as 56,000 more contractors, the report estimated

What kind of insane 'journalist' puts a camera or microphone in the face of deranged traitor Dick Cheney, one of the perps of 9/11, who never met a false flag terrorist attack on America he didn't love.
"As I've watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war," Cheney told Politico. "He seems to think if he has a low-key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won't be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won't be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of Sept. 11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won't be at war."
Of course Cheney is just playing the game. He knows Obama is following in his footsteps when it comes to war.

Ben Bernanke is still the head of the Federal Reserve, Tim Geithner is still Treasury Secretary and Rahm Emanuel still pulls the strings of his puppet president. That proves insanity and criminality rules.

And how do pollsters find the most insane of Americans to participate in their social engineering games.
President Obama is the man Americans admired most in 2009, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, while Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin are virtually tied as the most-admired woman.

The poll of 1,025 adults, taken Dec. 11-13, has a margin of error of +/–4 percentage points. {see the complete chart}
That's a small sample. Who did they poll, members of Congress and their families? I call BS on this one.

Did Obama elevate an international police force above American law?
Interpol given free hand in U.S.
No presidential statement or White House press briefing was held on it. In fact, all that can be found about it on the official White House Web site is the Dec. 17 announcement and one-paragraph text of President Obama's Executive Order 12425, with this innocuous headline: "Amending Executive Order 12425 Designating Interpol as a public international organization entitled to enjoy certain privileges, exemptions, and immunities."In fact, this new directive from Obama may be the most destructive blow ever struck against American constitutional civil liberties. No wonder the White House said as little as possible about it.

Insanity is not just for politics. It happens every day on the local level.

Murfreesboro, Tenn. - Rutherford County Sheriff's detectives arrested the three men Wednesday night that they think are responsible for a vicious home invasion attack on an elderly couple, Cecil Story, 86-years-old, and his 93-year-old wife, Edna Story, were beaten with bare hands, bound at the wrists and ankles, and robbed of less than $100.

There are plenty of voices of reason in this insane world. I'll end with one.
While it is true that government is incurably incompetent with respect to any genuinely worthwhile productive enterprise, it is an astonishingly efficient engine of plunder and destruction. However useless the CIA and its kindred agencies may be in collecting and analyzing reliable intelligence, they display considerable gifts when it comes to arranging politically useful mischief.

  3. You two are excellent. Among the best socio-political commentators (along with Grigg) that I've come across. I hope you two have a prosperous 2010, and look forward to a new years worth of insights. Peace.
