Detecting Stealth Jihadists

March 27, 2015 | Filed Under Gary Krasner, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

At this stage, investigators still cannot rule out the possibility that actions of co-pilot Andreas Lubitz–who had locked the captain out of the cockpit and deliberately crashed the Germanwings aircraft into the French Alps, killing 150 passengers–wasn’t an act of jihad. At least jihadists aren’t silent about it. They think Lubitz is an Islamic State hero.

While we won’t know the reason until perhaps the investigation is completed, we do know that it’s within the realm of possibility given the heightened recruitment of jihadists in most countries today. And they love to crash planes. It seems likely that the crash of EgyptAir New York to Cairo flight 990 on October 31, 1999, for example, was an act of jihad by Captain Gamil el Batouty.

Granted pilot suicides are rare. An FAA report from 2014 revealed that eight out of 2,758 fatal aviation accidents between 2003 to 2012 were suicides. All pilots involved were male, with a median age of 46. In seven of the eight crashes, the pilot was the sole occupant of the downed aircraft. Four of them tested positive for alcohol, and two of them were positive for antidepressants.

SAE Frat Video is Neither Racist Nor Offensive

March 26, 2015 | Filed Under Gary Krasner | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

Hear me out, before you get outraged. That’s been the problem with this and similar incidents far too often. Everyone’s on a hair trigger to condemn anything that seems “racist”, or anyone who doesn’t agree that something is racist.

Need I mention, as an example, the liberal riot called “Ferguson”? All that death and destruction from a rush to judgment, based on a pack of lies, which the media was eager to believe over more credible witness testimony to the contrary. In fact, it was because there were threats against anyone to might testify to the truth which discouraged them from coming forward to the media much sooner, which could have stemmed the fomentation. The looters in Ferguson painted the words “snitches get stitches” on the convenience store that the “Gentle Giant” had robbed.

So give me the patience that’s required for rational, analytical thought.

OK Gary, didn’t you see the frat boys singing that racist song?! Let’s begin with what I saw. I saw a bunch of kids acting giddy over a song that, by any standard, is considered taboo, because it’s racially insensitive. Racism is the new pedophilia today. Kids know it. Kids like do things that are stupid and outrageous, because they’re stupid and outrageous. Just to trigger that reaction. What they do is intended to shock people, or just to one-up each other in such adolescent exercises.

Michael Tomasky: An Example of a Stupid Liberal

March 22, 2015 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Gary Krasner, Government Corruption, Liberals, Progressives | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

I came across Michael Tomasky’s recent article, “Jeb Bush’s Minimum Wage Radicalism.”

It’s a good example of liberal stupidity because one can realize it without reading studies and guessing if the study is fraudulent or deficient in some way, which is often one or the other.

First, he wastes two paragraphs saying he likes the moderate positions of moderate republicans. Why? Because he’s a liberal democrat. Oh, thanks for clearing that up, and for wasting my time with obvious “mysteries.”

Having made the claim that moderates in the republican party will help the political discourse, he neglects to demonstrate that, even with an example. One suspects this idiot means that there would be less debate. Which means he believes debate is a bad thing. All that proves is that he’s a liberal, which we already know!

Next, he says he favors minimum wage laws. Why? Because it makes workers happy. Oh, but what about employers? He’s a liberal, so he thinks employers have a huge chest full of money in the backroom which they can pay employees.

I’m sick and tired of idiots hosting talk radio urging everyone to watch the latest atrocious executions by ISIS.

No it isn’t. I don’t have to see a beheading, or someone burning alive, or someone getting skinned alive.

Just knowing that these atrocities occur is quite sufficient. i do not also have to view them to appreciate its utter brutality.

These are brutalities I never wish to become numb to. Or see again in my nightmares. Only a fool would.

ISIS WANTS us to watch it, because it wants us to be terrorized by it. To be revolted from it. And to remember the horror of it.

An Epidemic of ‘Stupid’

Gov. Chris Christie is an anti-vaccine conspiracy nut?!

Any observer of politics can only sit back and marvel at the irony of this event. The fact that this is another instance of political demagoguery tainting a complicated science issue is nothing to celebrate. So don’t get me wrong. It’s unpleasant to watch. But it’s so educational about the disgusting dumbing-down of any issue that’s not of Micky-Mouse simplicity.

But just look at what’s happened.

Up until yesterday, Chris Christie was the top sound bite winner of all time. He used his power as governor to hog the spotlight and shout down voices of dissent. He was a “debate ender”. He never fostered thoughtful commentary which departed from his views. Why permit dissenting views when you command all the attention, by way of being governor?

He defended, for example, judicial rulings that were in accord with sharia law. And he nominated a pro sharia lawyer to judgeship. Thoughtful criticism was published. But Christie lashed back with intolerance and didn’t address the criticism on-point. He just issued the usual demagoguery and strawman arguments in sound bite format against dissenters. he called them Islamophobes.

OK, you get the point.

‘Interstellar’ Climate Change

February 1, 2015 | Filed Under Entertainment, Gary Krasner, Hollywood, Movies | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

This is not political commentary. it’s just an interesting observation that there may be a political subtext to the movie interstellar.

I don’t know if anyone else has made this observation. But I made the connection as soon as I saw who played a certain character in the movie. And given that you may have read elsewhere that director Christopher Nolan appears to be a political conservative (e.g. his last Batman movie), this may have been intentional.

And I’m not referring to themes in the movie that some reviewers have construed to be pro conservative. Some were written by conservatives, no doubt desperate to discover something from Hollywood that is not propagandizing from the left.

Although this reviewer (“Jay” somebody), while also mentioning a political subtext at one point, without labeling it conservative vs. Liberal, presents an interesting science interpretation of the film, albeit getting loopy on one aspect about it (e.g. – our fake moon landing!)

OK, with that said, here’s my observation. And let me know if you found anyone else making this connection:

A couple of weeks ago, George Clooney and his agent, CAA’s Bryan Lourd, circulated to the top people in film, TV, records and other areas, a petition which stated that they will stand up for freedom of speech not be intimidated into silence by the ruthless regime in N. Korea. It read in part:

This is not just an attack on Sony. It involves every studio, every network, every business and every individual in this country. That is why we fully support Sony’s decision not to submit to these hackers’ demands […] We know that to give in to these criminals now will open the door for any group that would threaten freedom of expression, privacy and personal liberty. We hope these hackers are brought to justice but until they are, we will not stand in fear. We will stand together.

No one in show business would sign it, despite Clooney saying that not doing so was tantamount to giving in to ransom.

Good morning class. Today you liberals will learn how to recognize coded language. And we will use the Ferguson incident as a case example.

GARY: Did you all watch the president’s comments last night?

Naive, mushy-headed young liberal: Yes, he called for calm following the grand jury verdict.

GARY: But why did he wait until AFTER the verdict was rendered?

Naive, mushy-headed young liberal: Why does it matter?

GARY: It matters because the rioters were already assembled on the streets. It was a little late at that point, to get them to disband.

Naive, mushy-headed young liberal: I suppose, but so what?

GARY: The reason Obama waited for the verdict was to editorialize about it. Had he given a news conference BEFORE the verdict, the only thing he could have said was that we’re a nation of laws, and juries hear the evidence and we have to accept the verdict.

Naive, mushy-headed young liberal: But isn’t that essentially what Obama said last night?

GARY: No. He said a lot more. He said, for example, that it’s “understandable” why people may be angry about the verdict.

Labor Unions For Dummies

November 24, 2014 | Filed Under Budget, Business, Capitalism, Gary Krasner, Jobs, Pensions, Public Employees Unions, Unions | Comments Off

By Gary Krasner

Let me describe one larger point regarding public employee unions. It relates to the anti-competitiveness of unions generally, the same idea that Richard Epstein often writes about. But I’ll greatly simplify it for you.

Companies are not in business to make jobs. They’re in business to make profits. (It’s no different than when you invest your money.) Jobs are necessary to make profits.

Hiring labor is part of the cost of doing business. The object is to keep that cost down, but not to the extent that it will affect the performance of the company.

That means people who are capable and perform well are what businesses need, and it is why they compete with other companies to get such workers.

Example: In my profession, prepress computer operators who were fast and accurate could negotiate for higher wages. Through that reputation, they were in demand. Poor workers were not.

Such workers do not need unions. Mediocre and poor workers need unions. Unions benefit those who are the worst at their job.

It only took a couple of days for Hillary Clinton’s “people” to walk back her gaff in a speech she delivered last week while campaigning in Massachusetts with Senator Elizabeth Warren. In trying to best Warren for leftwing support, Hillary said, “Don’t let anybody tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs.” Whatever the hell she really believes on this issue, and it’s anyone’s guess what that might be, given the Clinton’s extraordinary political expediency, I feel there’s a need to educate liberals on this issue.

The reason Sen. Warren, and now Clinton, tell businesses “you didn’t build your business” is two fold.

Their reason is to get elected from resentful losers—-democrats. They covet the rich. (But they don’t hate George Clooney or Oprah’s wealth.)

But the reason Democrat voters like the message is because they dont understand or want to accept, that they don’t’ understand economics. what exactly?

Paul Newman Knew How To Deal With Hamas

August 5, 2014 | Filed Under Gary Krasner, Gaza, Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamofascism, Israel, Jihad, Terrorism | Comments Off

A little-known film from the 60s taught us how to deal with jihadists unworthy of civil treatment.

Before we can learn how to deal with terrorists, we need to be able to identify whom they are, because the Obama Administration either doesn’t seem able to, or it favors them. In the context of this essay, we’re limiting the discussion to violent Islamic supremacists who kill noncombatants.

The next step would be to elect a president of the US who can cut it. This one cannot. He doesn’t have a clue. But Paul Newman understood exactly how to treat terrorists. At least the character he played in Hombre had.

Hombre was a small budget, 2 hour-long western that premiered in US theaters in January 1967. Wikipedia calls it a “revisionist western.” It was distinguished from others in the western genre, revisionist or not, by its producers and renowned cast. The script was written by Elmore Leonard and Irving Ravetch, based on a novel by, you guessed it, Elmore Leonard. And directed by Martin Ritt.

As I said, the dozen main cast members were outstanding in their field. The protagonist was John Russell, played by Paul Newman. Russell was the top cop in the Apache police. Fredric March was Alexander Favor, a government bureaucrat whose function was to administer the Indian reservations. Barbara Rush was his wife, Audra Favor. Diane Cilento plays opposite Newman, as Jessie Brown, the manager of the boarding house that Russell just inherited from his father. And Martin Balsam, with Spanish accent and makeup to appear as stage coach driver Henry Mendez. The bad guys are played by Richard Boone (Cicero Grimes), Cameron Mitchell (Sheriff Frank Braden), David Canary (Lamar Dean) and Frank Silvera, as the “Mexican Bandit”, his perennial role as character actor in many films.

Therefore, I’m being responsible by warning you that if you are enjoying “Extant,” the new TV series with Halle Berry, then you should stop reading now. Because I’m going to poop all over it, and make predictions about how it will disappoint you if you stick with it.

Still here? OK, you’ve been warned.

Last Wednesday, after it premiered, my pal Jason wrote me that he liked it. I opined that it was a cross between the movies Solaris (George Clooney) and AI (Spielberg), and that it has signs that it will string audiences along, as Lost (ABC) had done. They both seem to be enticing the same kind of audiences (SciFi conspiracy lovers).

I watched episode 2 tonight. Hearing it mostly, and glancing at the screen occasionally. At the 20 min mark, I pretty much wrote this entire review in my head. Now that I have time, I will lay it all out for you.

An Open Letter To Code Pink

Dear Ms. Benjamin,

I watched you on CSPAN today and decided to write an essay about code pink’s tactics. But first, I would like to get your response to a challenging question.

Before I ask my question, some background:

Like you, I’m also 60. My family was on the left, politically. My Aunt was co-founder of the NAACP Bronx Chapter in the 50s, and mentor to me growing.

But even when I was a radical leftist before 1994, I didnt see the productive purpose in public protests, and certainly not the kind of protests code pink performs.

By that, I mean I was never taught to disrupt other people’s speech. My parents said protest rallies are fine. Especially prior to the internet, when getting your views published and seen by many was costly.

But my parents were old school. And pacifists in their approach regarding tactics. They told me that in a free society, where speech was free and unrestricted, you persuade others by ADDING speech, and not taking away other people’s speech.

I thought Mitt lost, by my standards. My standards is that if you had points to make and didn’t make them, you lost the debate. Obama made the best use of a miserable record, by being more adept in rebuttal, and having another moderator rescue him occasionally.

Romney has imbeciles as advisors. They didn’t prepare him well. Mitt’s answers were poll-driven, repetitive and uninspiring.

Here is an example of how Mitt should have responded to Obama’s Lilly Ledbetter law, which Obama ALWAYS cites to make Romney look like Don Drapper on Mad Men.


Romney: Mr. President, I believe US presidents should receive the same salary, but not the American people who work for a living. I was fortunate enough to meet Alice Jones, a retired prepress operator in Ohio. Alice was a very proficient computer operator.

More on Obama’s ‘No Justification’ Comments

September 28, 2012 | Filed Under Gary Krasner | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner


The Muslim gang who raped Obama’s wife announced that they raped her as punishment, because she had not covered her head in public, as Islamic law requires.

At a news conference, President Obama announced that while he respects all beliefs, and does not wish to denigrate the opinions of the rapists who say that women must be modestly attired, he also stated that there is absolutely no justification for this type of senseless rape of Michelle. None.

The above incident never happened. But thanks to former CNN correspondent Bernard Shaw, we have a precedent for pondering such parallels, when Shaw proffered such a hypothetical scenario when he questioned presidential candidate Michael Dukakis during the debates.

However, Obama’s hypothetical answers may look familiar to you. That’s because he actually uttered those words in his reaction to the invasion of our Libyan embassy in Benghazi, Libya, and the murders of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans there. (The next day we learned that Stevens was raped and tortured to death.)

This is what Obama actually said on September 12, one day after the attacks and after the 911 anniversary:

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

This was part of Obama’s first statement in response to the first assassination of a US ambassador in over 4 decades. And it was disgraceful. HOW SO? There happens to be a small issue and a larger issue involved here.

Pretext vs. Rationale — Why We Were Attacked

September 19, 2012 | Filed Under Gary Krasner | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

When Islamists attack the US, they always make sure to have pretexts ready at hand. That’s to ensure that Americans remain divided over solutions, while the Islamists get what they originally wanted.

They understand the danger of a united consensus in the US. Even the Iraq war obtained support among 80 percent of Americans.

That is why organized attacks (portrayed as “spontaneous”) on Americans always accompany a “grievance narrative”, so that the murders do not appear gratuitous.

But in point of fact, they are not. It’s just that Americans cannot conceive of a population willing to “kill the infidel wherever you find them”, as one of its holy commandments.

So islamists, eager to spread Shari’ah law everywhere, generously furnish the gullible media with pretexts that Americans WOULD understand.

The ‘No One Gets Rich On Their Own’ Baloney

July 30, 2012 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Budget, Business, Capitalism, Democrats/Leftists, Economy/Finances, Ethics, Gary Krasner, Health, Liberals, Obamacare, Regulation, Taxes | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

Obama’s “no one gets rich on their own” rant was to justify policies that soak the rich, and not about the wonders of roads & bridges! But that was how Obamians had tried to spin it, such as here at Huffington Post.

You can read my postscript deconstruction of his Roanoke speech at the end of this article to see how ridiculous that is. Bottom line is that when Obama uttered these two sentences, “If you’ve got a business—-you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen”, he was NOT referring to roads and bridges from the prior sentence. It would have been far too obvious for him to have meant that shop keepers do not build the roads and bridges in the towns where they operate. He sure as hell didn’t mean to suggest that their taxes help build them! No, holding to the full context of the speech, he meant that they are not singularly responsible for their success, that would warrant the degree of wealth they reaped.

The original thesis—-the product of liberal linguistics consultant George Lakoff—-is a way to minimize individual success, so as to justify taking from successful people the rewards of their success, through taxes. Liz Warren—-the women who couldn’t get into Harvard on her own without falsely claiming to have one drop of Cherokee blood—-had adopted this simplistic baloney to frame the debate for OWS, if you recall.

Why Is Islam at War With the West?

July 16, 2012 | Filed Under Catholicism, Christianity, Gary Krasner, Islam, Koran, Religion | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

Indeed, why are there so many acts of terrorism by Muslims today? If there can be one central reason, I think it was that Judeo-Christianity was better able to reform and conform to political modernity of secular government and freedom of conscience, based on a less specific code of conduct than that of Islam.

The Catholic Church, for example, does not require Catholics to cite specific tenets to do or not do something. Indeed, the Church itself has stated in doctrine—-which is „tenets‰—-that it doesn’t have to specifically oppose or endorse something in order for a Catholic to oppose or endorse that something—-if it’s based upon his Moral Conscience. There is nothing in Catholic doctrine, for example, for a Catholic to conclude that it‚s wrong to kick a dog or surf the internet. Or he is being a good Christian by kicking a dog or surfing the internet. Either way, no specific doctrine is required.

As instructed in Catholic Doctrine, in Dignitas Humanae, Pope Paul VI wrote in 1965: “It is through his conscience that man sees and recognizes the demands of divine law. He is bound to follow this conscience faithfully in all his activity so that he may come to God, who is his last end.” More recently, Pope John Paul II wrote on October 11, 1992: “The Catechism of the Catholic Church, which I approved June 25th last and the publication of which I today order by virtue of my Apostolic Authority, is a statement of the Church‚s faith and of catholic doctrine, attested to or illumined by Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition and the Church‚s Magisterium. I declare it to be A SURE NORM FOR TEACHING THE FAITH, and thus a valid and legitimate instrument for ecclesial communion.” [On matters of conscience, refer to CCC 1776, 1777 & 1782]

The Maranis biography identified 3 dozen Obama lies in “Dreams From My Father”, including the libelous claim that Signa Insurance discontinued his mother’s medical payments for her cancer treatments. Not including his claim that he was never a member of the socialist New Party in Chicago.

None include the lies of omission either, such as the denial of historians from gaining access to Obama’s school records from Harvard, Columbia and Occidental. Including the sponsoring letters, which some claim came from Islamists and other unsavory sources. And he has the hutzpah to call Romney “the most secretive executive”?!

Perhaps the greatest lie of omission is one which has succeeded through the silence of many people: The 2003 party in Chicago, where then-Illinois state senator Barack Obama lavished praise on the guest of honor, Rashid Khalidi—-former spokesman for master terrorist Yasser Arafat. At the time Khalidi, a PLO adviser turned University of Chicago professor, was headed east to Columbia. There he would take over the University‚s Middle East-studies program (which he has since maintained as a bubbling cauldron of anti-Semitism) and assume the professorship endowed in honor of Edward Sayyid, another notorious terror apologist.

Instead, he delivers a warmed over campaign speech everyone has heard him utter countless times before. Even the black audience yawned, when they weren’t booing.

I’m convinced more than ever that Romney is not only NOT a supply sider, he knows little about macro economic theory. When does he ever discuss it in any depth?

Differences Between Bush’s ‘Wide Receiver’ Program and Obama’s ‘Fast & Furious’

Gary Krasner

It’s the difference between a marshmallow and a Mellow Marsh.

The main Democrat talking point to defend Obama’s debacle — Fast & Furious — is to claim that had begun under Pres. Bush. But in fact, the program they’re referring to that was run during Bush’s administration was called “Wide Receiver”, and it had been discontinued over a year before Obama took office. But more egregious than that is that it’s a facile sound-bite that ignores the stark differences between “Wide Receiver” and “Fast & Furious”, and worse, supposed serious journalists and correspondents do not call Democrats to task for it.

Here are the differences in simplest terms:

  • Wide Receiver (WR) was active from 2005 to 2007 (Oct.). Number of guns involved: 400
  • Fast & Furious (F&F) was active from Fall 2009 – 2011. Number of guns involved: 2,000


Electronic tracking
WR – RFID trackers installed in guns.
F&F – No electronic tracking.

WR – Actively tracked by airborn surveillance.
F&F – No active surveillance of any kind.

WR – Straw purchases recorded & surveilled.
F&F – No recording or surveillance of straw purchasers

Further Explanation: The local ATF field agents were ordered not to follow the straw purchasers. Federal agents were not allowed to interdict the guns and they even ran interference for the smugglers with local law enforcement on multiple occasions to make sure those guns made it across the border.
