Saturday Movie Matinee: Hagel Admits He Was Pressured By WH To Release Gitmo Detainees

Via Twitchy:

Outgoing Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel admitted that he was under pressure from White House officials to step up the controversial releases of detainees from Gitmo:

We can add Hagal to the number of Obama appointees who were yes-men while in office, but became detractors upon leaving. (See Leon Panetta, and  Henry Gates.) The question I always have, is – if you felt so strongly about a policy you disagreed with – why didn’t you speak out against the policy and announce your resignation at the time?

From writer/director Andrew Klavan… In a world gone crazy, in a world gone mad, a strange new horde of mindless leftist zombies lurk in the shadows. These unthinking undead claim to support your fundamental freedom to think, say, believe and report any damn thing you think, say, believe and report, BUT!!!!

That’s right. It’s the Attack of the But-Heads.

National Review: Sheriff David Clarke Rips Holder’s Anti-Cop Attitude at Senate Hearing:

  Attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch needs to mend the “frayed relationship” between police and the Department of Justice created by Eric Holder, says Milwaukee County’s Democratic sheriff, David Clarke.

Clarke, a defender of policing efforts and champion of gun rights in recent years, spoke at Lynch’s confirmation hearing on Thursday to criticize Holder’s tenure as attorney general, especially in the wake of 2014’s events in Ferguson, Mo.

“The incendiary rhetoric used by Eric Holder created the pathway for a false narrative that then became the rallying cry for cop-haters across America,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee. “It sparked unjustified hatred towards America’s law enforcement agencies and its officers.”​

Here’s Sheriff Clarke a few weeks ago setting a CNN host straight about the tiff between cops and the (Democrat) political class – described in all caps as a “SMACKDOWN.”

Obama/Holder/DeBlasio put out their insincere “pro-cop” statements specifically for useful idiots like this CNN host to latch upon so they can all pretend the last six months (six years, really) of anti-cop rhetoric and policies didn’t happen.

Bill Whittle, Truth Revolt: Racial Racket Ball:

Al Sharpton has declared an emergency meeting of his Diversity Panel since all of this year’s Best Actor / Actress and Best Supporting Actor / Actress nominees are white. In his latest Firewall, Bill Whittle shows the history of this Racial Racket Ball, leading back to its inventor, Jesse Jackson. It’s a long, long way from these racial grievance hustlers to the subject of SELMA.

FrontPageMagazine: Madtv – Michael Moore (Paul Vogt) gets beat up by Barbara Bush:

Who knew poor Michael Moore is living in fear for his life because of threats posed by elderly Republicans? It’s true.

Playing the victim card,  Moore posted on Facebook a “threat” (actually a joke) then 74 year old Clint Eastwood made ten years ago.

This old Mad TV skit showing Moore getting the crap beat out of him by Barbra Bush is hilariously apropos:


 After almost a decade of irrelevance Michael Moore is desperately using the American Sniper controversy where he called soldiers cowards to try and claw back his way to fame as if it were a chicken sandwich.

But Moore is running low on material so now he’s playing the victim. The victim of an 84-year-old man.

He posted on his Facebook page a message entitled: “The Day Clint Eastwood Said he Would ‘Kill’ Me, 10 Years Ago This Week,” and that included — in conclusion — that those who issue scathing verbal attacks are akin to Islamic State terrorists.
