#20 Andrea Mitchell Doesn’t Believe Greg Abbott is Really Handicapped Oct. 14: In her role as host on the all progressive all the time MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell hosted Wendy Davis on her Tuesday program to give her one more shot at explaining the Wheelchair Ad which has been panned by Democrats an Republicans alike. This time however, it was Mitchell who made the gaffe as she implied that GOP candidate for Governor of Texas was faking his “supposed” handicap!

#19 Enough of The Silly Scapegoating, Here’s The REAL Cause Of The Ferguson Violence  Nov. 26: Having spent at least seven or eight minutes tuned my thoughts upon this crucial topic and weighed each placement of blame by the politicians and pundits, I have reluctantly arrived at the conclusion that they are grossly mistaken in their rationale. The violence in Ferguson cannot be blamed on the President since there were few if any illegal immigrants involved. Politicians were too busy placing blame to accept it, Jews can’t be blamed because… well…they can’t be blamed for everything, and bloggers…well how can anyone believe a newsman who asked a rape victim why she didn’t bite down when she was forced to give oral sex? No the entire lot of the names offered up as the cause of Ferguson violence need to be tossed out because they are all ridiculous. Being that it is so close to the Thanksgiving holiday, and most of those placing blame need to take Thursday off, I do therefore humbly offer up some scapegoat suggestions which are much superior in logic to those offered so far.

#18 It Was Obama Who Called Netanyahu ‘Chickenshit’ Oct. 30
: The reason the Administration isn’t looking for the leaker is they know exactly where it came from, President Obama. It may not have passed from the President’s mouth to Goldberg’s ears but Barack Obama was the puppeteer whose strings controlled the mouth that spoke to Goldberg. Make no mistake, the Goldberg story was meant as a message to Netanyahu. The White House may have walked it back a tad, but only because the message wasn’t meant for the U.S. public or the mainstream media—-it was meant for Israel.

#17 The Latest Crazy Excuse From The Warming Enthusiasts—Global Warming Causes Global Cooling  Aug. 22: This sounds like things are getting a bit desperate for the folks in the global warming industry. Global Warming researchers from the United States and China on Thursday explained why the rapid global warming in the late 20th century has been slowing down over the last 15 years.  Actually it hasn’t slowed down, it’s stopped and as of the beginning of August it’s not 15 years but the earth hasn’t shown any warming for 17 years, 10 months. The researchers reported in the U.S. journal Science that the so-called global warming hiatus may be mainly due to a massive movement of heat from shallow surface waters to deep regions of the Atlantic and Southern Oceans.But wait a second, warm water doesn’t sink…cold water sinks.

#15 Why is April 2013 Attack on Calif. Power Substation First Being Exposed Now? Feb. 6: What if there was a terrorist attack but no one told us? What if that terrorist attack exposed the vulnerability of the entire U.S. power grid? An April 16, 2013, attack had been virtually unreported until the The Wall Street Journal reported it yesterday. It started when someone (or some ones) entered an underground vault to cut telephone cables, and then fired more than 100 shots into PG&E’s Metcalf transmission substation (near San Jose) knocking out 17 transformers. Electric officials were able to avert a blackout, but it took 27 days to repair the damage. The attack was “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred” in the U.S., said Jon Wellinghoff, who was chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at the time.
