Pseudo-Random Thoughts

Tu Quoque On Hillary Clinton's Emails:  As we learned that Clinton had tried to keep her public emails private as secretary of state, it was inevitable that one of her defenders would use the ancient tu quoque defense, inevitable that one her defenders would point out that other politicians also had not been completely public with their emails.

And, just as you would expect, the reporter, Adam Edelman, found mostly Republicans (four out of five) for his examples.

Even so, Edelman did not find another politician who used private email for all of his official emails.  Nor did he mention that another presidential contender, Jeb Bush, had released all of his official emails, as part of his campaign.

(Mollie Hemingway — who is not a fan of the Clintons — notes that they have a habit of misplacing or losing official records.)

Whatever Else You May Think Of Carly Fiorina, there is no doubt that she is turning out to be a superb critic of Hillary Clinton.
Whatever she was in her rookie run in 2010 against Barbara Boxer, she has upped her game to a new level.  And she is solving the problem of how to run against Hillary Clinton, who is planning to run as the symbol of womanhood, immunizing herself against critiques of all kinds by calling them wholesale attacks on her gender in general, and thus on all women alive.

How to defuse it?  Have the toughest critiques come, coolly and civilly, from a woman, who is in all ways her equal.
(I'd say her superior, but I understand the point that Noemie Emery is trying to make.)

I haven't searched, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Clinton defenders have already claimed that Fiorina isn't a real woman.  Or is a traitor to women, or something similar.

(Here's Fiorina's Wikipedia biography, with the usual caveats.  Unlike Clinton, she has held a wide variety of jobs, including secretary, receptionist, real estate broker, and English teacher in Italy.)

Sex Ed Curriculum Designed By A Sex Deviant?  That appears to be what happened in Canada's largest province, Ontario.
TORONTO - Despite efforts by the Liberal government to distance itself from suggestions that disgraced bureaucrat Benjamin Levin had a hand in crafting the sex-ed curriculum, there’s ample evidence he put his fingerprint on what Ontario children learn in the classroom.

Levin — a former deputy education minister who is expected to plead guilty to child porn-related charges Tuesday — repeatedly highlighted his role as overseeing curriculum issues.

In a 2009 newsletter, the then-deputy minister said he was “responsible for ... everything that they do” and to “implement” the “new” approach.
Traditionalists in Canada have been unhappy with the new curriculum for some time, and now they have one more reason to be suspicious.

By way of Mr. Fur.

President Obama Spoke Again On The Keystone XL Pipeline; As Usual, President Obama Didn't Tell The Truth:  I know.  The sky is blue, the Pope is Catholic; there are glaciers on Mt. Rainier, et cetera.  Nothing new here, you may be thinking.

But this time he earned another Four Pinocchios from Glenn Kessler, who seems a little peeved at our prevaricating president.
When Obama first started making the claim that the crude oil in the Keystone pipeline would bypass the United States, we wavered between Three and Four Pinocchios — and strongly suggested he take the time to review the State Department report.

Clearly, the report remains unread.

The president’s latest remarks pushes this assertion into the Four Pinocchios column.  If he disagrees with the State Department’s findings, he should begin to make the case why it is wrong, rather than assert the opposite, without any factual basis.  Moreover, by telling North Dakota listeners that the pipeline has no benefit for Americans, he is again being misleading, given that producers in the region have signed contracts to transport some of their production through the pipeline.
I can understand Kessler's feelings; years ago, I became peeved at Obama because he appeared to think that I would believe so many impossible things before — and after — breakfast.  (Perhaps, unlike the White Queen, I just haven't had enough practice.)  He was treating me — and you — as fools.

What's the best thing we can say about Obama's habit of making false statements about the pipeline?  That he has a reckless disregard for the truth on this issue, that, at best, he has not taken an hour or so to find out the facts.

You can decide for yourself how probable that best explanation is.

(Here's the State Department report in case you, unlike President Obama, want to read it.  It's 150 pages long, but you don't have to read the whole thing.)

You Can Take The Man Out Of Chicago, But You Can't Take Chicago Out Of The Man:  Which explains why President Obama has treated ambassadorships as just another patronage job.
Career diplomats are finding that they can't advance to top State Department posts such as ambassadorships because President Obama has stuffed political appointees into those jobs, the most ever in his second term.
Some of Obama's ambassadors have been not just rich donors, but unprepared rich donors, such as George J. Tsunis, who Obama nominated to represent us in Norway.

Tsunis did not do well when questioned by Arizona Senator John McCain.
To recap: Tsunis described Norway as having a president (“apparently under the impression that the country is a republic rather than a constitutional monarchy,” as the Local Norway's News notes dryly).   And he characterized the anti-immigration Progress Party as being among “fringe elements” who “spew their hatred” and have been denounced by the government.

That prompted McCain’s disbelieving answer: “The government has denounced them?  The coalition government — they're part of the coalition of the government.”
(Incidentally, that's the kind of questioning all our senators should do.)

Some ambassadors have been even worse.  Bundler Cynthia Stroum raised $500 thousand for Obama's 2008 campaign, was named ambassador to Luxembourg, and resigned after reports of her cruelty to staff. Not so incidentally, Stroum was working for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, at the time.

Career diplomats were resigning or asking for transfers to Iraq or Afghanistan, rather than work for Stroum.

As far as I know, the Obama campaign did not return her donations.

For the record:  Over the years, some political appointees have been fine ambassadors; a few have even been superb.  (For example, Daniel Patrick Moynihan was a very good ambassador to India.)  But the successes were men (and women) who were prepared for their jobs, and who saw them as difficult jobs, not as rewards for donations.

(Michelle Obama often speaks fondly of her father, Fraser Robinson, but she doesn't often mention that he had a patronage job with the city of Chicago, a job that depended on him getting out the vote in his precinct.)

Terror Or Backlash?  Which should our law enforcement people worry about most?  According to United States Attorney Benjamin Wagner, an Obama appointee, it's backlash.

Here's what he said at President Obama's recent “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism”:
The U.S. Attorney explained that “the Muslim community can play an important role in helping law enforcement separate radical noise from radical action, and when it’s something to be worried about and when it’s not.   If the community can be successful in stepping in first, law enforcement will never have to be involved.”   But [Sacramento Bee reporter Steve] Magagnini pressed the point: “Are Californians in danger from the Islamic State and al-Qaida?”

“I would say it’s not a very high threat,” Wagner responded.  “It’s important that people be alert without being frightened.”  The U.S. Attorney and Obama appointee acknowledged that ISIS has been urging people to “take action in your own communities, attack police, government buildings.”  However, “there are limits to how much one person can do to arm people, mobilize and do damage without law enforcement intercepting it.”  Then the U.S. Attorney made clear his real priorities.

“What I’m more concerned about is some sort of backlash crime here – something gruesome will happen in Syria and someone will take revenge on the local community.”
(Emphasis added.)

Perhaps Wagner's stated priority can be explained by a meeting he had had earlier with local Muslim leaders in Sacramento, California.  He may just have been repeating what he had told them.  But I fear that he was being honest, that he is more worried about backlash attacks — which have been almost non-existent in the United States — than terror attacks, of which we have had too many.

He is an Obama appointee, so it would not be surprising if he held such beliefs, and not be terribly surprising if he acted on them, if he spent too much time looking for backlash attacks, and not enough time looking for terror attacks.

(Note, by the way, his reliance on surveillance to detect threats.  Presumably, he mostly means the kind of electronic surveillance that NSA does.  But that kind of surveillance, like any other kind, can be evaded by clever terrorists.)

What Country Is Tupperware's Biggest Market?  I wouldn't have guessed it, on the first or second try.  (I might have got it by the tenth, if I had thought of going by population.)

It's Indonesia.
The party had the feel of 1960s America, almost.  A group of women, thrilled to get a break from the daily routine of hanging laundry and shuttling their children to and from school, sat in a circle, listening to a friend hawk plastic storage bowls in a dizzying array of pastels.

Some shushed babies on their laps; others occasionally leaned in for juicy pieces of news.

The women were, in fact, at a modern-day Tupperware party in the company’s biggest market.  The twist?  That market is halfway around the world from the product’s Massachusetts birthplace — in Indonesia.
Indonesia passed Germany, two years ago.

There's much more in the article, most of it quite interesting.

(Here's the company's site.)

Two Thoughts from Will Rogers:
The great comedian Will Rogers gave voice to widespread doubts concerning American's diplomatic performance.  The United States has never lost a war or won a conference," he declared.  Rogers also claimed to be clairvoyant on the subject of future wars.  If you want to know when a war might be coming," he told audiences, "you just watch the United States and see when it starts cutting down on its defenses.   It's the surest barometer in the world." (p. 122)
If you are like me, you'll think that neither of those is completely true — but that there is some truth in both of them.

(His Wikipedia biography includes many of his better-known jokes, including this one: "Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for.")

The University of Westminster, "Campus Of Hate"  On Thursday, I speculated that "Jihadi John" (Mohammed Emwazi) has been radicalized at his alma mater, that he had become an Islamic extremist at the University of Westminster.  I didn't base that speculation on anything I knew about the university, just on a pattern often found.

Yesterday, the Daily Mail published an article that provides more direct evidence for my speculation.
Mohammed Emwazi might have been born in Kuwait. But his murderous alter ego was made in Britain.

With hindsight, the road to Raqqa — the Islamic State’s Syrian stronghold — was clearly signposted.

He grew up in the streets around Ladbroke Grove, in the inner suburbs of West London — an area that has become a breeding ground for Islamic militancy and home-grown terror suspects.

He was befriended by Cage, the so-called campaign and human rights group, whose leading light is someone who has expressed support for the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate and for the principle of death by stoning for adultery.

And, perhaps most significantly of all, he went to the University of Westminster, where, according to a report published yesterday, no fewer than 22 events have been held since March 2012, providing a platform for speakers with a history of extremist views or involvement with extremist organisations.
(Paul Bracchi is probably referring to a report, or perhaps an update of an earlier report, by Student Rights, a group opposed to extremism on British campuses.)

There's much more evidence about the Islamic extremism on the campus in the article.  If Bracchi is even roughly correct, a Muslim on that campus would have to struggle, hard, to avoid that extremism.

You can find the same climate of hate, in milder forms, at some American universities.

(If you prefer to see the same argument in a less tabloid presentation, you can read this Washington Post article.

The university put up an apparently official statement on their web site, saying they were sorry if one of their alumna was a murderous terrorist.  But the statement is not signed, which strikes me as extremely odd, and, possibly, cowardly.)
