Overnight Open Thread (12-31-2014) - New Year's Eve Edition
— Maetenloch

Quote of the Day

A reader must be scratching his head: Why would Israel up and bomb people, leaving 2,200 dead and 11,000 injured in "seven short weeks"? Did they just wake up one morning feeling bloodthirsty? Israel must be an incredibly evil state, huh?

If Israel ever goes down - is ever destroyed by its enemies - journalists who lie about the state, or create a false impression of it, will have a share of blame. Do you know what I mean by that?

Fact-Checking the WaPo Fact-Checker

So the Washington Post's fact-checker, Michelle Ye 'Trovato' Hee Lee, has been busy checking the facts on Rudy Giuliani's statements on Face the Nation last week.

She gives Giuliani's statement that "We've had four months of propaganda, starting with the president, that everybody should hate the police." a full four Pinocchios. Mainly based on the fact that Obama never explicitly said the everyone should hate the police.

But as NiceDeb points out Obama is much too clever to ever say anything so obvious as this when he can subtly say the same thing through the choice of phrases and words designed to make it clear he's on the side of the anti-police protesters while keeping it deniable if challenged.

Hello Ms Lee? Police should not "use excessive force", "should not be bullying" etc? ...Rather than encourage people to stay home and trust in the justice system,  he gave credence to the fact-challenged hysteria that followed the Michael Brown shooting.

When the Ferguson Grand Jury rendered their decision, he said that the protesters' uninformed rage was "understandable." It wasn't. The facts of the case never supported their false anti-cop narrative. Our nation's first black president had an opportunity to defend the police and the rule of law, and he didn't.

And on the next Giuliani's statement that Sharpton has been to the White House 80-85 times and is a "close advisor" to the president, Lee gives him one Pinocchio.

She admits that Sharpton visited the White House at least 82 time based on the incomplete visitor logs but then inexplicably downgrades this to a mere 72 visits over the past year. And with the following breakdown as compiled by NiceDeb:

  • One-on-one meetings: 5 (7 percent)
  • Meetings with staff members or senior advisers, with more than one guest: 20 (27 percent)
  • Events with more than 90 people: 16 (22 percent)
  • Miscellaneous meetings or events, ranging from 3 to 700 guests: 31 (43 percent)

And then despite contrary statements from those close to Obama she declares the idea that Al Sharpton is 'close advisor' to the president is just false.

And on probably unrelated note I recently found some odd sunglasses downtown by a dumpster. And when I put them on, this is what I saw as I looked around:

How Old Are the Democratic Party's Leaders?

Cause Legislators Gotta Legislate

And New York's lawmakers are clearly working on the important things:

Tiger selfies. In New York in February, it becomes illegal to pose for a photo with a lion, tiger or other big cat. The measure, which specifically prohibits contact between members of the public and big cats at animal shows, passed after self-portraits with the animals started becoming more popular online, particularly with some young men on dating sites.

Also: The FDA Is Banning Trans Fat Sprinkles

Book of the Week: "The Peshawar Lancers."

Based on Moe Lane's recommendation I tracked down and read this book and it was pretty good.

The central idea to the book is that there was a comet strike in the Atlantic in the late 19th century that devastated Europe and North America. The British evacuated most of their people to India creating new country with a hybrid Hindi-Brit culture that becomes the new British Empire. As Lane describes it it's the world that Kipling would have wanted to live in. I'd love to see more books set in the same world as well.

Happened to me on NYE 2010. My wife had died in October and it was my first everything on my own. Yeah, I had the kids, but it's not the same. We watched the ball drop and for a split second I forgot. I turned around to kiss her and she wasn't here. That was rough. The horde kept me sane and laughing though and for that I will be forever grateful.

13 "Pretty damn old. Hillary is the baby of the bunch at 69." Poli-Grip. It's not just for breakfast any more. At one point I began to add up the aggregate ages of the announced-and-likely contenders for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. When you throw in "possibles" and wild cards, the total gets to nearly half a millenium. Every one of them as white as a bleached bottle of Wite-Out in a blizzard. The Democratic Party. We stand for youth and ethnic diversity! Except, um, for all of the elderly YT types who want to be our nominee.

84 Gee Louise it's not like they threw the Possum off the top of a building or something. It's in a cage and it's lowered down.

And btw. I'm not much for praising people who do their job well. I should be. We all should be. Too many people do their jobs well expecting no praise and aren't much bothered because they do the job well because they LIKE doing a job well. (otherwise they're wasting their time right?)

Anyway I don't praise good work enough as I don't want to seem a suck up or have the person wonder what I REALLY want. (which is usually my reaction to praise coming out of the blue)

But I have to say now at the end of the year and the beginning of a New one that I would like to express my appreciation for the work that Maet does presenting us with an excellent and informative and amusing or amazing ONT 5 days a week. That's good consistent work that is much harder than it looks and takes a special eye and creative thought.

Sometimes I've read a link before the ONT on my own but usually it's something new AND  interesting.

So. Maet. Thanks. I hope we all have as pleasing a new year as we can humanly possibly make it.

91 When the kids were little we spent new years eve at the BIL's. with the in laws and about 40 friends. Thekids got older, married, and the son moved out of state, The kids go out and arty, the BIL no longer has parties, the FIL passed away, so it's me and the wife of 41 years sitting on the couch watching Longmire on Netflix. Oh, the wife is wanting to go to bed (sleep) not whoopie. Happy New Year

Because of the Christmas eve gig, this meant driving all night and morning on 20 minutes sleep, which meant that I passed though Louisville just after 3:30 on Christmas morning. I didn't figure that stopping for drinks would be in order just then. 8-) As far as Towson goes, I only saw signs for it on my way through Baltimore on a side trip to New England, but they were nice signs.

273 I didn't know how to answer him. Posted by: SMFH Any one who serves has a lot of different reasons when they go in, but why they stay and endure is probably reduced to a few. Most people that serve and stay in, it's a matter of self -respect. They could do nothing else. To put yourself "between your home and the wars' desolation." It is a high civic virtue, to put service to country and others above your own needs and wants. In any decent country, this would be widely respected. Too many people in this country give lip service to "serving" yet not respecting the mission that soldiers were on. That's too awkward. Some day, there will be a reckoning. More than just a "thank you" and be on your way for serving.

President Perry, on his first day in office, appointed Gov. Sarah Palin to head up a newly created 'Dept. of Kicking Ass'.

 

Secretary Palin was asked if she would be taking names, in addition to kicking ass...

And she replied..."Oh hells yes!"

420 Happy New Year! Sounds like someone is having a firefight in a thunderstorm out there.


For the new year I'm trying new things. Pale Moon Peach Ale and Miller Fortune. The Pale Moon is good, as usual, and the Miller is...eh. not bad. It does have an Ace of Spades on the label so there is that.

426 I just spent the most lovely evening out with my husband, on our 17th wedding anniversary, and now I'm waiting for the city to send up fireworks for our benefit. Funny how they do that every year without us even reminding them.

Happy New Year ace, thanks for the blog (and I second the idea of tomorrow for a resolutions post).

 

Happy New Year Maet and the other coblogs and thanks for your contributions.

 

And HNY to all the morons, both coasts and in between, and to the frozen north, and down under, and in all the active AOs of CENTCOM, and all those serving everywhere else.

441 Good tip on reccomending Stirlings' "Peshawar Lancers". Been wanting a follow on to that one for long and long. Maybe now that he has tied up the Sky People series and I don't see how much further he can push the Ember around, he can put some time into this sequel. Course if you need more Stirling, the Draka are his most interesting creations, bit like Voldemort, dark and terrible but great.

Posted by: Kyle Kiernan at January 01, 2015 03:17 AM (eW3hM)

442 "Peshawar Lancers" is a really good book. It's a kitchen sink of fun - hero on the run, stalwart companions, evil cultist, international intrigue, plucky female, cold steel, air ships, pirates, air ship-pirates, cavalry to the rescue, etc

Posted by: steve_in_hb at January 01, 2015 04:49 AM (H1KAH)

443 SM Stirling's "Peshawar Lancers" IS an excellent book and harkens back to the days before some SJW/Wiccan got her claws into him. I'm only guessing there, obviously, but SOMETHING happened.
