Scott McClellan; George Soros; Dick Morris; Clint Murchison; Barr McClellan; Peter Osnos; JFK; LBJ; assassination plot

Scott McClellan's new book "What Happened" is not worth writing about, but the story of its creation and the MSM/DNC efforts to foist yet more white noise on the American people is noteworthy.

First of all, there is nothing noteworthy in the book, as Dick Morris has pointed out. (I will not bother to read the book, but Morris' analysis is logical.) McClellan's anti-Bush conclusions are supported by nothing that would be unique to any insider. There is no bombshell factual revelation.

It has become clear that as McClellan began writing the book, the book was bland with no reason for the MSM/DNC to provide any coverage. At some point, the publisher exerted some degree of influence, and the project "evolved" (as the Washington Post has acknowledged. The Post tries to downplay the influence of the publisher. The Post quotes publisher Peter Osnos (a former Post editor) as part of the effort to downplay the influence of Osnos' publishing company. The Post refers to Osnos' publishing company "PublicAffairs" as a "small company," but never acknowledges that PublicAffairs and Osnos are part of the George Soros empire that owns the Democratic Party.

Flopping Aces writes more on the evolution of the book from a drab say-nothing book to a drab anti-Bush book (and the publisher's role in said evolution).

But even more interesting is the history of McClellan's father, Barr McClellan. You see, Barr McClellan is an author also. He became a partner in the Austin law firm of Clark, Thomas and Winters in 1972. At that point, "he was told about the illegal activities of the firm. . . " including the assassination of President John Kennedy. As a result of this inside information, he quit the firm five years later to start his own firm. I guess when you are gen-u-ine insiders like the McClellan's, it takes time to figure out that you don't like what you see on the inside.

Dad's belated crazy book

But I digress. Barr McClellan decided to write a tell-all book in which he revealed the assassination plot - a plot so extensive it included Dallas Cowboy owner Clint Murchison, Lyndon Johnson, oilman Haroldson Hunt and others.

JFK assassin Clint Murchison (rear left) talking with Tom Landry and other Dallas Cowboy officials.

The book is entitled Blood Money and Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K. I am not sure how the law firm was involved, but it sounds like a more interesting story than Scott McClellan's book.

An attractive attorney at Clark Thomas and Winters - [I wonder if she knows that she is working for assassins. Maybe Scott should let her and the other employees in on the secret. Come to think of it, maybe Scott should have mentioned this whole JFK assassination thing to the President while he was working at the White House - unless, of course, Bush was in on it too. I guess that is the subject of his next book.]

In any event, the MSM/DNC's (1) failure to mention that Goerge Soros is the publisher of Scott McClellan's book (2) attempts to depict the publisher as "small" (3) failure to mention that Scott McClellan's father is a first class nut who published more interesting crap than his son ever could and (4) other stuff that we are not yet aware of - is all standard operating procedure to which we have become accustomed.

I wonder, in the entire McClellan book (Scott's - not Barr's) is there even one lie depicted that comes close to the Washington Post description of Scott's publisher as "small"?

What is more interesting is that George W. Bush hired this man in the first place. Memo to future moderate Republican presidents: Don't hire the insane or their children. George W. Bush is lucky that "war propoganda" is all that he was accused of. I can't wait to see what kind of crazies are lining up to work in the McCain administration.

Quote of the day - Debbie Schlussel [Sex and the City]

". . [T]hree 40-somethings and one 50-something make up a foursome of bawdy, aging women who wasted their lives sleeping around, cackling about it, and acting like immature, 20-something sex-crazed male dogs in heat. Because they dined in glamorous places, wore trapezoid shaped clothes and $1,000 fancy high heels, this somehow made their low-brow, savage behavior, 'classy.'"

Quote of the day - Michelle Obama

“Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”

Another Obama supporter, another embarrassment/ terror sympathizer/ lunatic/ anti-American; Guantanamo Muslim chaplain James Yee.

Another Obama supporter turns out to be an enemy of America - and not just in the same way that the New York Times or AP typically oppose America. James Yee opposes the U.S. in the old fashioned way. He supports terrorists to such an extent that prosecution would have revealed too many national security secrets:
[T]he charges were dropped, according to Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, because there were “national security concerns that would arise from the release of the evidence” if the case proceeded.
h/t LGF


As Charles wrote, he is the "perfect delegate for Obama." Democrat politicians in Olympia, Washington agree, and have selected Yee as an Obama delegate.

We are not supposed to criticize Obama simply because his supporters/friends/family are nuts, invent accusations of Nazism, hate America, were/are muslim, were/are communists, inflame the uninformed with false accusations, are criminals or are terrorists. But if Obama surrounds himself with such people, what kind of cabinet appointments will he make? Who will formulate his policies? Will Obama suddenly develop good judgment when he takes the oath of office and appoint only loyal, sane Americans? Or will he continue to surround himself with America haters, thus insuring the most disastrous possible policies toward terrorist nations.

Hamilton Jordan, RIP

There has been little mention of the death of Hamilton Jordan in today's news. Even though he was part of one of the worst administration's in history, I prefer to remember Jordan for a column he wrote in 2001. Jordan identified the Clintons for what they really were/are. He did this at a time when there was no Obamessiah. Today's leftists feel safe in attacking Clinton only because there is an alternative that is even more leftist.

We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say 'OK.'

Quote of the day - Thomas Sowell [Oliver Wendell Holmes] ("change")

The great Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendell Holmes said that a good catchword could stop people from thinking for 50 years. The big catchword this election year is "change"-- and it has already stopped many people's thinking in its tracks.

Quote of the day - Andy McCarthy

Can somebody explain to me how Obama sat in Wright's church for 20 years and managed never to hear anything, but hears 20 seconds of a Bush speech that doesn't mention him and perceives a shameful personal attack?

Quote of the day - George W. Bush [appeasement]

"Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."

Quote of the day - Ann Coulter [Obama and Wright]

If it takes Obama 20 years to notice that his pastor is a traitorous, racist nut-job, it will probably take him his full term of office to realize that the U.S. has been invaded and subdued by al-Qaida. Let's just hope President Obama pays closer attention during national security briefings than he did during 20 years of the Rev. Wright's church services.
