Maureen Dowd the "Doctor Smith of Journalism"

Maureen Dowd - United States of Shame

Do you remember that 60’s show “Lost in Space”?

Well, if you’re old like me you remember it well.

The show as based on a family of astronauts who because of being throw off course were “Lost in Space” and trying to get home.

Even though the family was in trouble they stuck together.

Yet along for the ride was a Dr. Zachary Smith, the nemesis of the trip.

If you remember the show you know that Dr. Smith was constantly compaining about this and that. Dr. Smith was especially annoying when things got the worse - "We're doomed I tell you - doomed!"

Cry-baby liberals like Maureen Dowd who tell us that America is so bad are like Dr. Smith. They never contribute anything constructive. They give no hope, inspire no heroism. They only rant and rave, piss and moan and make a general nuisance of themselves.

Maureen tells us:

"Stuff happens.

And when you combine limited government with incompetent government, lethal stuff happens.

America is once more plunged into a snake pit of anarchy, death, looting, raping, marauding thugs, suffering innocents, a shattered infrastructure, a gutted police force, insufficient troop levels and criminally negligent government planning. But this time it's happening in America.

W. drove his budget-cutting Chevy to the levee, and it wasn't dry. Bye, bye, American lives. "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," he told Diane Sawyer."


The "Levee Argument" has become the new mantra of the left. "How could Bush say that 'who knew they would breach? That's ridiculous!"

Well, Maureen, you're "golden boy" Bill Clinton blasted Suzane Malveaux on CNN about this argument, and if you checked your facts you'd know that NOBODY saw this coming:

"MALVEAUX: But do you think this administration responded quickly enough?

G.H.W. BUSH: Of course I do.

CLINTON: Let me answer this. The people in the Superdome are in a special position. And let me say, I've been going to New Orleans for over 50 years. There's no place on earth I love more. They went into the Superdome, not because of the flooding, but because we thought the hurricane was going to hit New Orleans smack dab and they'd be safe in there if they didn't leave town.

What happened was, when the levee broke and the town flooded, what did it do? It knocked out the electricity and it knocked out the sewage. They're living in hellacious conditions. They would be better off under a tree than being stuck there. You can't even breathe in that place now.

So I understand why they're so anxiety-ridden. But they have to understand, by the time it became obvious that they were in the fix they were in, there were a lot of other problems, too. There were people -- they were worried about people drowning that had to be taken off roofs."

But look at all the other things they had to deal with. I'm telling you, nobody thought this was going to happen like this. But what happened here is they escaped -- New Orleans escaped Katrina. But it brought all the water up the Mississippi River and all in the Pontchartrain, and then when it started running and that levee broke, they had problems they never could have foreseen."


"Oh woe is us, we're doomed!"

Quite frankly we need less of the douds of the world, and more of the characters of Lost in Space such as Maj. Don West - the "anti-smith". He was the constant hero of the mission, no matter how hard things got, he got them through it.

All while Doctor Smith bitched and moaned, "We're Doomed!"

Thankfully for every Doctor Smith spewing fear, there are some Major Wests out there as well.

Witness Washington Post Columnist Colbert I. Kingwho exhorts us that rather than criticism:

"I'd rather focus on the groups that are rallying to help the victims. I'm pleased to be part of a city that is opening up its D.C. Armory to serve as a temporary shelter for hundreds of victims. Our mayor is sending buses to pick up people being evacuated along the Gulf Coast. Doors are opening in the nation's capital even as homes are being closed forever down South. Mayor Anthony Williams said yesterday that he hoped other jurisdictions will follow suit. "If every city on the East Coast shelters 400 people, we can ease the suffering of tens of thousands of people," he said. Collectively, even with a late and faltering federal response, the nation can do a lot. The president of the United States, however, hardly warrants a footnote.

And outrage? It has its place. For that there are targets galore stretching from the New Orleans region to Washington. There will be plenty of time for fault-finding -- a task that we in Washington do oh so well. But not now. This is a time for action."


Do you see the difference between the two?

Better yet here is a question. If you were stuck in the Superdome in the days after Katrina struck and had a choice of who you were stuck with either a Maureen Dowd or Mr. King, who would you chose?

I know who I would choose, and who would get the "boot".

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
