Bill Clinton once lost the nuclear codes for months,
and a "comedy of errors" kept anyone from finding out

By Christopher Woody

The codes needed to launch a US nuclear strike are supposed to be kept close to the president at all times.

A department within the Defense Department is tasked with overseeing all aspects of the nuclear-launch process, including the codes.
During Bill Clinton's presidency, officials from that department discovered the codes had gone missing.

The process the president has to go through to launch the US's nuclear weapons isn't as simple as pressing a button, but the key component of that process, the codes needed to authorize the launch, are never far from the president.

At least they're never supposed to be.

According to Gen. Hugh Shelton, who was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from October 1997 to September 2001, the number of redundancies in the nuclear-launch process "is staggering." All of steps are "dependent on one vital element without which there can be no launch," he wrote in his 2010 autobiography, "Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior."

That element, the president's authorization codes, is supposed to remain in close proximity to the president at all times, carried by one of five military aides, representing each branch of the military. The codes are on a card called the "biscuit" carried within the "football," a briefcase that is officially known as the "president's emergency satchel."

However, around 2000, according to Shelton, a member of the department within the Pentagon that is responsible for all pieces of the nuclear process was dispatched to the White House to physically look at the codes and ensure they were correct, a procedure required to happen every 30 days. (The set of codes was to be replaced entirely every four months.)

That official was told by a presidential aide that President Bill Clinton did have the codes, but was in an important meeting and could not be disturbed.

The aide assured the official that Clinton took the codes seriously and had them close by. The official was dismayed, but he accepted the excuse and left.

When the next inspection took place the following month, that official was on vacation, according to Shelton, and another official was dispatched to the White House. The new official was met with the same excuse, the president is very busy, but takes the codes very seriously and has them on hand.

"This comedy of errors went on, without President Clinton's knowledge I'm sure, until it was finally time to collect the current set and replace them with the new edition," Shelton writes.

"At this point we learned that the aide had no idea where the old ones were, because they had been missing for months," he added. "The President never did have them, but he assumed, I'm sure, that the aide had them like he was supposed to."

Shelton and then-Secretary of Defense William Cohen were alarmed. The problem of missing codes had been resolved by changing the codes, but they quickly acted to change the process itself, mandating that the Defense Department official visiting the White House physically see the codes, waiting there to do so if necessary.

Shelton and Cohen feared the saga would reach the press and become an embarrassing story. But word of the missing codes never made it out, and Shelton's recounting of it in his 2010 book was, to his knowledge, the first time it had been shared publicly.

"This is a big deal "a gargantuan deal" and we dodged a silver bullet," Shelton writes, adding: "You do whatever you can and think you have an infallible system, but somehow someone always seems to find a way to screw it up."

3DHS / Chickens Coming Home To Roost on State Tax Deductions!

As Caps on Federal Deductions Begin, High-Tax States Seek a New Scheme


JANUARY 2, 2018

For many, there are few things quite as enjoyable as watching high-tax states kvetch that the new GOP tax plan caps deductions on federal tax returns for state and local taxes.

Taxpayers in other states have long subsidized the spendthrift ways of states like California and New York. Those states could always sell yet another tax increase to their citizens, who knew they could deduct the increase on federal returns.

But those days are over, and high-tax states are scrambling to figure out how to keep having their cake and eating it, too. The New York Times reports: "One proposal would replace state income taxes, which are no longer fully deductible under the new law, with payroll taxes on employers, which are deductible. Another idea would be to allow residents to replace their state income tax payments with tax-deductible charitable contributions to their state governments."

This is in addition to efforts to sue the federal government, as if a federal tax deduction is somehow a right.

However, I do encourage those states to try that "charitable contribution" idea, under the obvious condition that they can't dress up a mandatory tax as a charitable contribution. Because that's not charity.

What's amusing is that these states don't seem too interested in just cutting their state budgets. Spending less would be heresy to Leftist politicians who embrace a redistribution ideology. Balanced budgets are for other people, but not them.

Many other states are able to prosper without ridiculously high taxation rates. Some states have no income tax at all, and manage to run just fine. Funny how that is.

Frankly, "flyover country" is sick of subsidizing the ever-expanding bureaucracy of states that look down on us with disdain. If the coastal elites want high taxes, then they need to find a way to make that work on their own. Don't ask the federal government to just pass your debt over to the rest of us.

The Times notes: "[T]he cap on the state and local tax deduction could pose a serious threat to state budgets, because it makes state taxes more expensive for residents. That could make it harder for states to raise taxes, particularly on wealthy residents, and could increase pressure to cut spending."

In other words, these state governments are well aware that their own citizens don't want to pay for whatever crap they keep spending on. They've just been shamelessly forcing others to pay for it through deductions.

Now that there's a cap, they'd rather scheme to dump the costs on another sucker than admit their ideas lead to ruin. All the while, the rest of us are sitting here with smirks on our faces, knowing this is going to be a titanic failure.

So there's evidence:

Clinton campaign paid people to incite violence at Trump rallies

Lisa Bloom paid people to fabricate Trump sexual accusations

Phony dossier from Fusion GPS has FBI & DNC connections

Yet we're supposed to believe @realDonaldTrump is the bad guy

The Halloween terrorist attack in New York City was horrifying for many reasons. Not the least of which was the fact that this was yet another jihadist attack committed by yet another alien who had been admitted into this country through legal immigration channels.

It illustrated once again why extreme vetting is needed, especially when aliens come to the United States from dangerous regions of the world where radical Islamism is rampant. In this case, the terrorist, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, came from Uzbekistan, a country where terrorism is widespread.

But perhaps the most outrageous aspect of this particular terrorist attack is that there was no national interest whatsoever in admitting this alien to the United States. Saipov came into the United States through the Diversity Visa Lottery.

The Diversity Visa Lottery legislation was originally sponsored by the late U.S. Senator Teddy Kennedy. That's your first clue that it was a bad idea. Created in 1986, the Diversity Visa Lottery provides for the admission into the United States of up to 50,000 randomly-selected aliens every year, under the rationale of increasing the diversity of immigrants in the United States.  Each year, over 14 million aliens enter the lottery hoping to win.

But unlike other immigrants who come to the United States, Diversity Visa Lottery winners do not serve the national interests of either providing a useful skill that is needed in our economy or reuniting U.S. citizens with their family members. Indeed, the admission of Diversity Visa Lottery aliens does not serve any national interest at all. So the United States gains nothing when it gives away 50,000 of the most valued immigration documents on the planet, green cards allowing permanent residence in the United States.

It has long been obvious that there is no benefit to admitting randomly-selected aliens to compete for jobs with U.S. workers. But this latest terrorist attack illustrates vividly that there is a cost. With every alien admitted, there is a risk, usually a very small one, that the alien is a terrorist or comes from a region where the culture is conducive to Islamic jihad.

In other words, the Diversity Visa Lottery is not only a lottery in which the alien takes a chance, a chance that he will gain entry into the United States. It is also a lottery in which the United States takes a chance, a chance that we are admitting a terrorist or potential terrorist.

With other categories of aliens, there is at least some national benefit that is gained when this risk is assumed. But with Diversity Visa Lottery recipients, the United States gains nothing when it assumes this risk. It's a bad deal for the United States.

It's time to end the Diversity Visa Lottery. There are multiple bills pending in Congress that would terminate the lottery. Congress should end it now. Not as part of some grand immigration bargain, but as a single positive step toward more rational immigration policies.

3DHS / Ha Ha....Thugs Dead! ----> Have a good one!
« on: September 06, 2017, 11:11:14 AM »

It was a scene right out of a Wild West movie where the hombres on horseback ride into a Texas border town in the dead of night and gallop down Main Street, firing indiscriminately.

However this was no movie and the horses these thugs were driving was a Nissan Altima and that fabled Main Street was Glenburnie Drive, in North Houston, Texas.

The "SHOOTOUT" began late last Friday night as a Texas homeowner was sitting quietly on his front porch, enjoying the evening when out of the darkness a late-model Nissan Altima appeared roaring down the quiet street towards him, and within a matter of seconds the would-be assailants open fired on the homeowner, spraying the area with over 40-rounds within a matter of seconds.

Miraculously the homeowner escaped uninjured; however what followed next would put Clint Eastwood to shame, within a matter of seconds after that awesome display of firepower, the homeowner reached for his own weapon that he apparently had at the ready and began immediately returning fire at the speeding auto, which swerved and hit a parked car.

Wounded the three thugs exited the vehicle and continued the pitched firefight on foot. The homeowner who is an avid marksman continued returning fire hitting all three, stopping them before they could reach his property.

One of the men was immediately killed at the scene, while the others were rushed to the hospital. A second shooter was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital, while the third is in critical condition battling for his life.

According to news reporters, aside from being an excellent marksman the Texas homeowner is licensed to carry a concealed weapon, and goes to the shooting range regularly and practices his skills with his AR-15, the weapon he usually has by his side when sitting on his porch late at night.

Police are investigating the shooting; however, it's an obvious case of self-defense and another example of why our Second Amendment was created.

3DHS / Major Gas Lines In Dallas!
« on: August 31, 2017, 04:57:10 PM »
The shit hit the fan in Dallas today...

Gas station panic!

Reminds me of the Jimmy Carter days.

Some Dallas gas stations have 75 cars backed up....not an exaggeration!

Dallas Police are being positioned at some gas stations as A-Holes attempt to cut in lines.

Many gas stations have no gas.

Auto parts stores selling out of gas cans.

This is serious right now in Dallas.....may soon spread to varying degrees to other parts of the country.
