Losing David Brooks as a so-called conservative would be no loss at all.

How Attitude Trumped Conservative Thought

righteousmomma   Posted Today, 12:48 PM

Unbelievable - have I said lately that we live in a truly bizarre upside down surreal world? 

I couldn't find the rest of the article but the sub headline says it all:

 

"How Attitude Trumped Conservative ThoughtWhat we can't have is nonconservatives redefining conservatism as an attitude, and then ignoring the underlying philosophy."

Yep ole Brooks did just did that very thing -- ignored the underlying philosophy (and his own understanding of conservatism) to diss Cruz and Rubio and tout Obama.

Today Brooks is saying that if Cruz and Rubio get it and Trump keeps being popular, what use is there in being a conservative?. BARF!!censored.gif




AQAP publishes insiderís account of 9/11 plot

Long War Journal:

Thomas Joscelyn
February 10, 2016
 
Sometime before his death in a US drone strike in June 2015, Nasir al Wuhayshi recorded an insider’s account of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. As the aide-de-camp to Osama bin Laden prior to the hijackings, Wuhayshi was well-placed to know such details. And al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which Wuhayshi led until his demise, has now published a version of his “untold story.”
 
A transcript of Wuhayshi’s discussion of the 9/11 plot was included in two editions of AQAP’s Al Masra newsletter. The first part was posted online on Jan. 31 and the second on Feb. 9. The summary below is based on the first half of Wuhayshi’s account.
 
Wuhayshi began by explaining al Qaeda’s rationale for attacking America. Prior to 9/11, the jihadists’ cause was not supported by the Muslim people, because the mujahideen’s “goals” were not widely understood. The jihadists were divided into many groups and fought “tit-for-tat” conflicts “with the tyrants.” (The “tyrants” were the dictators who ruled over many Muslim-majority countries.)
 
While the mujahideen had some successes, according to Wuhayshi, they were “besieged” by the tyrants until they found some breathing room in Afghanistan. The “sheikhs” studied this situation in meetings held in Kabul and Kandahar, because they wanted to understand why the jihadists were not victorious. And bin Laden concluded they should fight “the more manifest infidel enemy rather than the crueler infidel enemy,” according to a translation obtained by The Long War Journal. Wuhayshi explained that the former was the “Crusader-Zionist movement” and the latter were the “apostates” ruling over Muslims.

Wuhayshi then cited Abu Muhammad al Maqdisi, a prominent pro-al Qaeda ideologue, who warned that the “capability” to wage “combat” in Muslim-majority countries did “not yet exist.” So, for instance, if al Qaeda launched a “jihad against the House of Saud,” then “many jihadist movements” would oppose this decision. Al Qaeda’s fellow travelers would protest that they were “incapable” of defeating the Saudi government. And these jihadists would complain they did not want to “wage the battle prematurely,” or become entangled “in a difficult situation.”

For these reasons and more, according to Wuhayshi, bin Laden decided to “battle the more manifest enemy,” because “the people” would agree that the US “is an enemy” and this approach would not sow “discord and suspicion among the people.” Bin Laden believed that the “Islamic movement” would stand with al Qaeda “against the infidels.”

Wuhayshi’s explanation of bin Laden’s reasoning confirms that attacking the US was not al Qaeda’s end goal. It was a tactic, or a step, that bin Laden believed could unite the jihadists behind a common purpose and garner more popular support from “the people.”

EXCLUSIVE: New OíKeefe Video Shows How Easy It Is To Commit Voter Fraud In New Hampshire [VIDEO]

The Daily Caller:

Explosive new video released by muckraking journalist James O’Keefe exposes just how easy it is for non-residents to vote in New Hampshire’s primary, despite a change in the state’s laws aimed at curbing voter fraud.

The video — which was shared exclusively with The Daily Caller — shows poll workers advising undercover journalists working for O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action (PVA) how to skirt the rules in order to vote as non-residents. The damning video also shows Bernie Sanders campaign staffers encouraging undercover journalists to claim false addresses in order to vote in the primary.

Breaking: Supreme Court Blocks Obamaís Climate Plan

More on the Supreme Court vs the EPA
Steven Hayward
February 10, 2016

The Supreme Court’s stay of Obama’s “Clean Power Plan” yesterday is fairly unusual. But it may have come about because the EPA essentially dared the judiciary to stop it. Jonathan Adler has some useful observations up on this point at The Volokh Conspiracy yesterday:
 


Looking back over the various stay applications, I suspect that the EPA’s arguments against the stay were undermined by the Agency’s own statements about the potentially revolutionary nature of the CPP.  In promoting the plan, the EPA repeatedly emphasized that the CPP represented the most ambitious climate-related undertaking in the agency’s history and crowed that the plan would lead to the complete restructuring of the energy sector. Making these claims may have undermined the EPA’s position, because it made it easier for the stay applicants to argue that a stay was justified. Put another way, an unprecedented assertion of regulatory authority may itself have justified an unprecedented exercise of the Court’s jurisdiction to stay the agency’s action.

It’s like the EPA said to the Supreme Court, “Nyah, nyah, you can’t stop us!” Even for Chief Justice John (I See Nothing Wrong with the Statute) Roberts, this is too much.

 

Incidentally—or is it a bonus!—this ruling may nuke the Paris climate accord. Now if we could just bring back nukes (power that is).

Where’s The Media Orgasm Over Ted Cruz’s Showing?

When Marco Rubio finished third in Iowa, after spending a ton of money, the media could not contain itself. It was like their chairs were vibrating on election night. The gasps and sweaty palms and yells of “Marco” overwhelmed and dominated all other coverage. In fact, subsequent to Rubio’s Iowa loss, news networks covered how the news networks covered Rubio. In New Hampshire last night, having spent less money than any other candidate, Ted Cruz came in third when the polling averages had Cruz in fourth place and some individual polls had him in a worse position.
