Bob Woodward (or Watergate fame threatened for criticizing Obama

This post is specially for those of you who scoffed when Little Nicky told you barack Hussein Obama was a tyrant in wimp’s clothing and would become a threat to democracy, free speech and the freedoms we in the west hold dear.

Having benefitted from a fawning and sycophantic press corps throughout his first term the drone strike President is not going to sit back and allow reporters to write honest accounts of his administration’s ineptitude, self interest, corruption and contempt for democracy and the law now.

When legendary reporter Bob Woodward (famous for breaking the Watergate story that resulted in the downfall of President Richard Nixon, compared to Obama a pillar of moral rectitude)wrote a column calling out Team Obama for trying to blame budget cuts (‘The Sequester’) on the Bush administration when the policy was formulated under Obama by officials he had appointed, the limp wristed one showed just how nasty wimps can be when they have some power to abuse.

First off, The White House used the Obama felching faction of the press corps to try to claim Woodward was exaggerating the importance of the sequester policy. Meanwhile, on a personal level, the administration was getting nasty with the veteran reporter.

Here’s the write up Politico published of the incident:

Bob Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that in a piece in that weekend’s Washington Post, he was going to question President Barack Obama’s account of how sequestration came about – and got a major-league brushback. The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half hour,” Woodward told us in an hour-long interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets.

Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill. “I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today,” the official typed. “You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. … I think you will regret staking out that claim.”

Woodward repeated the last sentence, making clear he saw it as a veiled threat. “ ‘You’ll regret.’ Come on,” he said. “I think if Obama himself saw the way they’re dealing with some of this, he would say, ‘Whoa, we don’t tell any reporter ‘you’re going to regret challenging us.’ ”

You will notice that Wooodward, not noted for being sympathetic to The Republicans, tried to defend the Obamessiah by distancing The Chosen One from the White House thugs.

A half hearted apology, a bad tempered exchange of emails and a campaign on Obama supporting blogs to discredit Woodward forced the reporter to change his tune however. This is how he described what happened later:

The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half hour,” Woodward told us in an hour-long interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets.

Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill. “I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today,” the official typed. “You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. … I think you will regret staking out that claim.”

Woodward repeated the last sentence, making clear he saw it as a veiled threat. “ ‘You’ll regret.’ Come on,” he said.

Now the battle is escalating. It’s Bob Woodward vs. the White House.

The best-selling author and Washington Post reporter is protesting White House backlash over his criticism of how Obama and aides are handling the sequester issue.

Talking to USA Today, Woodward said: “It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this,”

Woodward told CNN, the abusive e-mails he received had come from “a senior person” at the White House.

Peacemaker and Joybringer Obama Launches Another War.

He promised he would be the peacemaker, the great conciliator, the leader who would usher in a new post – conflict global age. And may believed him. Oh how they mocked when Little Nicky predicted Barack Hussein Obama would be a warmonger, a divider and more than any of his predecessors they lackey of the neo Nazis who are pushing for a global totalitarian government.

You all know how much I hate to say this but…
……………………………….I told you so.


The drone – strike President, Barack Hussein Obama’s terse notification to the U.S. Congress last week that American troops are being deployed to the northwest African nation of Niger confirms that a whole new stage in the imperialist recolonization of Africa is now in progress.
How did they get involved in Niger, you might well ask? Predictably the story was not mentioned by mainstream media where the official lined toed by all still pushes the peacemaker who walks on water bullshit, so your guess is as good as mine but mine is that like the recent incursion into Mali, a problem was being created by locals who don’t much want to co – operate with the New World Order and whose tribal lands sit on top of some strategically important minerals.

The dispatch of the first 100 troops—with hundreds more reportedly to follow—is bound up with a deal signed last month between Washington and the Niger government allowing the US military to set up a drone base on the country’s territory, creating the conditions for spreading the Obama administration’s remote-control killing spree to exterminate rebels not just in Niger itself but Mali, Chad and throughout the region.

The deployment of US forces in Niger comes in the immediate wake of last month’s French action in neighboring Mali, carried out with critical US logistical and intelligence support, and aimed, in the words of French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, at the “total reconquest” of the former colony. Interesting phrasing there.

Officials in Paris and Washington have justified their military incursions into the African continent in the name of defeating Al Qaeda and associated organizations in Africa. British Prime Minister David Cameron chimed in last month, warning that the prosecution of this war in Africa could span “decades.” Perpetual war as per Orwell’s 1984?

The glaring contradiction between this pretext for war in Africa’s Sahel region and the line-up of former colonial powers behind Al Qaeda-linked militias in the sectarian-based war to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria is passed over in silence by the media and the political establishments as we would expect.

All this is playing out just as Little Nicky Machiavelli said it would. My more famous ancestor invented the game these nonentities are playing.

How many of you out there who protested against my non interventionist stance, saying we must intervene on humanitarian grounds are now starting to think “Oo – er, Little Nicky was right, these military interventions were never anything to do with humanitarianism.

Britain’s Credit Rating Dowgraded By People Who Rated Toxic Debt Bonds

The downgrading of Britain’s credit rating, which will have little effect on us ordunary punters, is interesting only in that it has been done by a credit ratings agency closely which gave triple-A ratings to worthless toxic shite bonds (aka Collateralised Debt Obligations) sold by the banks to a lot of decent people who were persuaded they were putting their money in sound investments.

‘Moody’s announced on Friday night that it had cut the Government’s bond rating one notch from ‘Aaa’ – the highest possible level – to ‘Aa1’.

The agency pointed to “continuing weakness in the UK’s medium-term growth outlook, with a period of sluggish growth which [it] now expects will extend into the second half of the decade”.

Thus these ‘rating agencies’ which were created by the banks for the benefit of the banks. played a major role in the crash of 2008 are now the same agencies (just three dominate the world market) are now credit-rating countries and impacting upon the lives of many people.

While dropping from Aaa to Aa1 will have little immediate effect because few nations still retain an Aaa rating, and at Aa1 we still only pay 3.5% interest on our £trillion and a half debt, when the rot sets in seriously as it has in Greece, Italy, Spain and other Eurozone nations we are looking at paying between six and seven per cent on that £trillion and a half.

Any idea what six % of a trillion pounds is? No?

It is £60 billion a year. Or £1000 for every adult and child in the nation. Or about 5% of GDP. Or a hell of a lot more austerity measures than left wing politicians and media dickheads have been complaining about over the past few years.

First we need to get that debt down. If you don’t believe me, go to Greece, Spain or Portugal and ask how life is right now. Or go to Italy and you can join in the celebrations if Silvio Berlusconi is re elected on a platorm of standing up to the Gauleiters of Brussels. Then we need to dump politicians who are in the pockets of the New World Order bankers (all three major parties in the UK) and elect some leaders who are apable of thinking for themselves.

Shame and humility are not the greatest gifts of bankers or politicians, gobsmacking levels of arrogance are more their line. But their ranks a numbered in thousands, there are sixty million of us. Time to show them who is boss.


So Why Don’t The Bank Of England Just Do The Sensible Thing?

The Bank Of England is not what you think it is. Most people think Th Central Banks are owned by the nation, in fact I have seen many vitriolic argements about the US Federal Exchange in which well informed people of not particular political persuasion tried to explain that The Fed is owned by private inteests and thus does not have to do what is in the best interests of American citizens and US Liberals, the most fanatical members of the Obamessiah cult who insist their wondrous leader controls The Fed and thus everything it does is in the best interests of the American people and anyone who disagrees is a racist and a young earth creationist right wing nut job. Obamessiah cultists are not big on sanity.

The same goes for The bank of England although British lefties usually manage to be a teeny bit more rational in their responses to the truth.

We The Punters do not own the Bank of England, neither does The Queen nor the Government; it is owned by 1000 share holders whose identities we are not allowed to know (The Boggart Blog bookie is not taking bets on some of them being named Rothschild). So it doesn’t really matter because the 1,000 will decide what happens to the UK’s monetary policy anyway.

“In 1977, the Bank set up a wholly owned subsidiary called Bank of England Nominees Limited, (BOEN), a private limited company, with 2 of its 100 £1 shares issued. According to its Memorandum & Articles of Association, its objectives are:- “To act as Nominee or agent or attorney either solely or jointly with others, for any person or persons, partnership, company, corporation, government, state, organisation, sovereign, province, authority, or public body, or any group or association of them….”

Bank of England Nominees Limited was granted an exemption by Edmund Dell, Secretary of State for Trade, from the disclosure requirements under Section 27(9) of the Companies Act 1976 , because, “it was considered undesirable that the disclosure requirements should apply to certain categories of shareholders.” The Bank of England is also protected by its Royal Charter status, and the Official Secrets Act.”

OK, so now you know why the Bank Of England does not act in the interests of the people. Makes a lot of other things crystal clear doesn’t it.

How Big Is The Universe? I Was Right.

A few years back Little Nicky had some good sessions in which I tried to impart some common sense to science heads (I do not call them science dicks because because that might imply they have dicks. Not having a dick is not a shortcoming in female scientists of course but the one arguing with me an generally behaving like the most fanatical member of a crazy Californian religious cult were all men)

One of the things Little Nicky liked to wind them up about was the question of what exists beyond the universe. Science dicks heads you see like to claim that before the big bang all the matter in the universe was compressed into a pellet the size of a mouse turd (i.e. slightly larger than Brian Cox’s brain). Ask them what was outside the mouse turd, a void, an infinite raspberry jelly,a graveyard for dead scientific theories and they would say “Nothing, all the space and time and science and jelly and cheese and typewriters and bubble gum were in the mouse turd. Nothing existed outside it. And then it went bang and started expanding like a giant pink bubble (that was coz of the bubble gum) and it gets bigger and bigger.

Why scientists, who are supposed to be clever, are too dim witted to get their heads round the meaning of infinity is like the origin of life, the nature of human consciousness and the question “Why does Dom Joli have a career on television”? a mystery.

Little Nicky would try to explain the idea of this shock wave emanating from Big Bang being the end of the universe was stupid. If you travelled from the centre of the universe to this notional wave and carried on you could keep going forever, a million billion zillion times further than you had already gone.

“You don’t understand science,” they said. Funny that, because it turns out I was right and the science heads were wrong.

An episode of Horizon on BBC 4 this weeks showed scientists are slow but they get there in the end, years after the rest of us have moved on.

How Big Is The Universe – Horizon

It is one of the most baffling questions that scientists can ask: how big is the Universe that we live in?

Horizon follows the cosmologists who are creating the most ambitious map in history – a map of everything in existence. And it is stranger than anyone had imagined – a Universe without end that stretches far beyond what the eye can ever see.

And, if the latest research proves true, our Universe may just be the start of something even bigger. Much bigger.

The Creatures That Feed From The Bottom Feeders Bottoms

After bludgeoning Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, Barack Obama’s Hypocriteocrat Party (The Democrats) have been uncharacteristically silent on the Cayman Islands investments of Obama administration nominee Jack Lew.

There are many reasons for conservatives to oppose Jack Lew’s nomination for Treasury Secretary and yet they are being accused of obstructionism and trying to derail Obama’s financial policy of trying to turn the USA into Greece. The fact that Lew is known to have held a substantial, and entirely legal, investment based in the Cayman Islands is not one of them.

But shouldn’t the Obama felchers of the left liberals be furious? Last year, the Obama campaign and its surrogates savagely attacked Mitt Romney for “betting against America” through his financial portfolio, which included foreign holdings — including some in the Cayman Islands. This ad painting the Republican nominee as an unpatriotic hypocrite was memorably unsparing on hyperbole. Observe the demagoguery for yourselves:

Now cast you minds back to the idiotic “Occupy movement” those dopehead rich kids in designer clothes who set up a campaign to occupy the streets (but went home to Mum for a shower and a hot meal when it got cold and dark) until all the personal wealth of ‘The One Percent’ (of rich Republicans)had been confiscated and given to … erm … somebody else, preferably somebody with dark skin.

You would think those people would be going crazy about rich Democrats using the same accounting techniques to avoid tax as the evil Republicans wouldn’t you? After all the infinite moral superiority of Democrats, liberals and progressives as they like to style themselves, is said to make they love paying taxes. We’re not the only ones to think so as this report from Buzz Feed shows:

President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign famously trolled Mitt Romney for having bank accounts in the Cayman Islands throughout 2012, with campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt calling it proof that the Republican “bets against America.” It’s a line that was echoed during the election by Governor Martin O’Malley, the Democratic National Committee, and several web ads on Obama’s own YouTube channel, which featured at least 20 videos mentioning Romney’s Cayman accounts. A search for Cayman Islands on the Obama campaign’s website brings back more than 1200 results. But now that one of Obama’s own cabinet nominees is defending his own Cayman account, Democrats are suddenly silent on the matter.

It’s a safe bet that the Democrats will not be distributing mock Cayman passports to reporters in an attempt to torpedo the president’s greedy, patriotism-challenged nominee (according to their own very recent standards). Marc Thiessen of The Washington Post digs deeper into the astounding but entirely typical double standard from the left of the political spectrum:

Just last week, during a “60 Minutes” interview before the Super Bowl, Obama declared, “When you look at some of these deductions that certain folks are able to take advantage of, the average person can’t take advantage of them. The average person doesn’t have access to Cayman Island accounts.” It’s a recurring theme for the president. In a 2009 speech, Obama focused his ire on “a building in the Cayman Islands that had over 12,000 businesses claim this building as their headquarters” — a building called Ugland House.

Obama said, “And I’ve said before, either this is the largest building in the world or the largest tax scam. And I think the American people know which it is: The kind of tax scam that we need to end.” Well, guess who was involved in the “largest tax scam” in the world? Jack Lew. According to the New York Times, Lew’s Cayman Islands fund was based in “the notorious Ugland House, a building whose mailboxes are home to nearly 19,000 corporate entities, many of them tax shelters.”

Well apart from revealing that Barack Hussein Obama is a mean spirited little shit who can’t resist rubbing salt in people’s wounds (but most of us were aware of that) what does that tell us about Obama’s hatred of tax avoiders? nothing actually, because according to Team Obama, Lew’s situation is totally different, you see, because he’s a … umm … you know … a Democrat.

It’s also worth noting that the ad shown in the video above also slammed Romney for supposedly outsourcing American jobs while at the helm of Bain Capital. There is zero evidence to back up this false claim, which Team Obama leveled repeatedly. Every independent fact-checker including uber – lefties Snopes and Politifact debunked this ad and others like it, verdicts that did nothing to dissuade the Obama campaign from running the spots from coast to coast or the the creatures that feed from the bottom feeders’ bottoms, i.e. the idiots who worship Obama (PBOH) as the second coming of Jesus chuffing Christ from believing it and parroting it’s false claims.

Democrats they sacrificed all credibility by suggesting that Romney might be a felon … a sleazy, backdoor attempt to justify their original lies. They acused Mitt Romney of being responsible for the death of a woman who had died of cancer several years after her husband had been made redundant by Bain Capital, even though Romney’s association with Bain at the time of the man’s redundancy had only been that of shareholder. This escalation prompted another fruitless round of rebukes from fact-checkers. Senior professional turd hurler for Team Obama, Stephanie Cutter breezily still affirms that she harbors no regrets over her starring role in promulgating these lies that were aimed at discrediting a credible candidate for the US Presidency. And why would she? She’s a shameless means-to-an-end bottom feeder, and her side won. Result. The end always justifies the means for the morally superior Democrats.

Little Nicky Machiavelli is a British blogger of course and you might well ask what any of this has to do with Britain. Well nothing, but it is entertaining to see how far, in just four years, the hypocrisy and mendacity of Barack Hussein Obama and his corrupt regime has taken the worlds most powerful economy towards banana republic status. And it may serve as a warning to the hand wringers, bleeding hearts and idle dole bludgers of where we will be heading if we ever put the Labour Party back in power. If you think the coalition are bad, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Brace Yourself For Solar Storms

About two years ago Little Nicky told you of a warning issued by the kind of people who occasionally raise their snouts from the trough of taxpayers’ money to look at the sun through radio telescopes.

They said we were entering a period of unusually high solar activity and ought to brace ourselves for trouble.

These people have also said solar activity was a far more likely cause of climate change that CO2 which only resulted in the CAGWARTs (Carbon, Anthropogenic Global Warming Alternative Reality Trolls turning up the volume on their whine machine to eleven.

So what kind of trouble might we be in for?

This kind of trouble.

Now it has to be said, this artice describes a worst case scenario, the events it warns of are possible but not probable.

But then, by the same criteria, all those doomsday predictions of CAGWART scientists (which very noticeably have not happened (Where did the UN’s 50 million global warming refugees go?)were always worst case scenario possibilities rather than certainties.

Still we did learn one valuable lesson from the Global Warming scare. Scientists cling just as tightly to the certainties offered by their religion as the believers in any traditional religion.

Education Needs Quality Not Quantity

It’s make-or-break time for education

The day is rapidly approaching when we must decide what we want from our schools, bright, self – confident, curious young people, or an elite of highy intelligent, highly focused, semi – autistic nerds and an army of unthinking automatons, the Epsilon semi morons of Aldous Huxley’s brave New World.

I came across a link on a few of days ago. It captures very well the state of education in many countries, where government schools providing free education are inadequate and quality of education is extremely poor.

In India, where the writer is based, the government is going berserk to enroll children in schools, push for ever improving examination pass rates and entry into higher education institutes. This has resulted, the article said, in quality suffering badly. According to the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) 2012 published by Pratham, a non-government organization. The university enrollment rate has risen but so has the dropout rate. Over 75.2% of all children enrolled in Standard 5 in government schools could not do simple division problems.

And you thought it was just Britain or the USA (80% of my traffic is from those nations)where dumbing down is at the heart of education policy?

Really the focus is on the wrong end of the education system. People do not need a university degree to be a box schlepper or burger flipper but they do need basic literacy and numeracy skills and a cultural grounding to train for a practical trade, work in an office or shop or get a job in the service industries.

Primary education is vital for the inclusive economic well being of a country, and for the individual. If you haven’t got primary education because there were no schools or you went to a school that was more interested in teaching diversity awareness or civil rights studies you don’t have an initial platform to stand on. Primary education is the chief source of social mobility but it is increasingly inaccessible to astonishingly large proportion of the poor.

Education, one of the basic rights of an individual according to international law, has become a distant dream for many; “quality education” has become a niche product accessible only for an affluent elite. This has resulted in an extremely high skill deficit and the ridiculous stuation of nations like britain, Frane, USA and Canada having to import skilled labour, plumbers, electricians, engineering machine operators and so on, from developing nations, creating social malaise both in the developed nation that must support a growing pool of unemployed social science, media studies and graphic design graduates and the poor country that sees it’s economic future heading for the west.

The OECD projects that India will produce 24 million graduates by the end of this decade, however:

“… an earlier survey by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) found that only 39.5% of all graduates in India were viewed as employable
only 10% of graduates from business schools in India manage to get hired …”
A study by Aspiring Minds showed that India produces more than 500,000 engineering graduates a year, but barely 3% of an assessed 55,000 graduates were viewed as ready to be employed without extra training.

The problem is not just in India or developing countries; Harvard Business Review estimates that by 2020, the worldwide shortage of highly skilled, college-educated workers could reach 40 million.. “Even America is neither producing enough college graduates to sustain a robust workforce, nor fulfilling its national promise of economic opportunity for all,” writes Daniel Greenstein.

There are more young people in the world now than ever before, and most of them are concentrated in developing countries. The world only need so many ‘science’ graduates, the focus in education needs to switch to quality of basic education and skills training for youth that can lead to meaningful employment.

Two major steps are required:

Within the next decade all children in developed and developing nations should complete primary and lower secondary education which enables them to meet measurable learning standards and acquire relevant skills so they may become responsible, productive members of society.
Governments should conduct a skills survey and create a detailed estimate of the skills they require. Based on these needs, they should reconstruct education system to meet the needs of society and not the needs of academic and bureaucratic empire builders.

Public-private partnerships and participation of youth in policy decisions regarding education and skills development, the mantras of the left, are politically correct bollocks and should be forgotten. I totally disagree with education ‘expert’ Pauline Rose who writes that “Education needs its Bill Gates” As my title states “Education is about quality not quantity” and when academic elitists start eulogising people like Gates we should remind them that Microsoft was the corporation that made ‘not Fit For Purpose’ an acceptable level of quality for goods sold. Other lefties plead education needs funds and equality. Well so long as equality means equality of opportunity and not affirmative action to award qualifications on the basis of ethnicity, sexual orientation and home background, fine.

As for funds, I think of the intelligence to be found among people of my parents generation, those born between World War 1 and world War 2. Many of them left school at 14 or 15, having studied in poorly equipped classrooms with few trendy, politically correct teaching aids and often a shortage of text books, few went on to attend university, yet it was their generation that gave us the great advances in health, technology, living standards and workplace conditions. A look at the wold now, with its emphasis on examination statistics, targets and league tables for school results, and it’s output of semi – literate idiots suggests the more we spend on education the less education pupils get.

Whistle-blowing dinner lady wins compensation after school sacks her for behaving like a decent human being.

Zombie Society: What is really killing our jobs and town centres?

It is very easy to blame the internet for the decay of our town centres. As high streets and shopping malls appear to have more shops boarded up and bankrupt than are open for business, blaming the internet alone is too easy. The digital revolution must take some of the blame for stubbornly high joble
ss statistics too, but the whole picture is far more complex.
