Today, The Washington Times published “Obama: Americans don’t have time to think about Benghazi, Obamacare”.
I’m so used to Obama lying that it hasn’t crossed my mind in at least four years to suppose that he might sometimes tell the truth. So, you can imagine my surprise when I found myself agreeing with eight consecutive statements spoken by the Shah of DC.
According to The Washington Times,
“President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare.”
Thus, Democrats need not fear political repercussions from those incidents in the upcoming November elections. Since the people “don’t have time to think,” the politicians will be able to get away with just about anything.
We might wonder why “people don’t have time to think,” but I’ll save that for another time. We might also wonder at Obama’s cynicism, but I’ll also save that one for another time.
For now, I’ll merely concentrate on the big story that Obama Told the Truth!
Although there are always conspiracy theories to blame the Jews, Jesuits or the CIA (and I’m not arguing that such theories are necessarily wrong), there’s a global consensus that the primary entity responsible for downing Flight MH17 is either:
1) the Ukrainian rebels supported by Russia;
2) the government of Russia; or
3) the government of Ukraine.
Although the Ukrainian rebels were initially blamed, I’ve argued from the beginning (Who Destroyed Malaysia Flight 17?) that the rebels were the least likely suspect because they lacked the necessary training, experience and expertise to operate a highly sophisticated weapons system like the Buk SA-11.
Apparently, the Ukraine government now agrees with me. According to CNN (MH17 Crash: Did Russia pull the trigger? Ukraine says yes):
“Vitaly Nayda, Ukraine’s director of informational security, told CNN the person who shot down the flight was “absolutely” a Russian. “A Russian-trained, well-equipped, well-educated officer … pushed that button deliberately,” he said.”

I know that you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet. I know that YouTube videos can be faked. I also know that I can be fooled by some of those fakes.
But here’s a video that, though it seems fantastic, looks like it might be true. If it is true that cars can run on gas fumes, then the automobile industry has been selling us carburetors and fuel-injection systems for decades that are designed to waste gasoline, increase pollution and support the petroleum industry rather than cut your and my costs.
According to the man in this video, some people using this “fume” technology claim to be getting up to 200 miles per gallon.
After several days of media and government screaming “Blame the Russians! Blame the Russians!” I was a little surprised today to find relatively few articles blaming the Russians. Could it be that evidence is emerging that refutes Russia’s involvement in the Flight MH17 crash?
In fact, a report and video have emerged that claim that the United States government has satellite imagery showing that, in all likelihood, Ukrainian government forces–not Ukrainian rebels and/or Russia–shot down Flight MH17.
This video and the allegations it contains are evidence but not proof. They might be true; they might be lies.
Still, one thing is all but certain: There should be one or more US satellites parked over the Ukraine during the recent conflict. There should be one or more satellites parked over Russia at all times, for years. One way or the other, the US should have satellite images and evidence of whatever really happened to Flight MH17.
When do you suppose those satellite images will be released to the public? Why haven’t they been released already? In the interests of truth, establishing responsibility, and preventing some hysteria but mistaken response, shouldn’t those images be released as quickly as possible?
The report claims that a large number of beer bottles were observed at the site where the missile was allegedly fired by Ukraine soldiers. It’s at least possible that the missile was launched by Ukraine soldiers as a drunken prank.
If it turns out that Flight MH17 was brought down by Ukrainian solders–especially, drunken Ukrainian solders–what will that do to the morale of the remaining Ukraine soldiers and the Ukraine government? Will responsibility for Flight MH17 be enough to destroy the Ukraine government’s will to resist the separatist rebels? Could the current Ukrainian government be overthrown? Could the downing of Flight MH17 by Ukrainian drunks prove to be the pivotal event that ends the Russia/Ukraine conflict and allows Eastern Ukraine to be united with Russia?
According to the “About” comments associated with the following YouTube video,
“Ukraine [government] has released video it says is evidence a Russian Buk missile system was smuggled into rebel-controlled eastern Ukraine just before Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down.
“Counterintelligence chief at Ukraine’s national security service, Vitaly Nayda, says a Buk-M1, also known as the SA-11, missile system was moved into pro-Moscow territory in Ukraine around 1 a.m. on Thursday. ‘We have compelling evidence that this terrorist act was committed with the help of the Russian Federation. We know clearly that the crew of this system were Russian citizens,’ he told a news conference.
“Reuters reports: ‘Calling on Russia to give Ukraine the names and surnames of the crew so that Kiev could question them, he said the three systems had now been moved back to Russia, showing journalists pictures of the missile systems in various locations.’
“‘We know about the three people who came together with these systems from the territory of Russia’, Nayda told a news conference.”
Here’s that video (00:01:07)
Note that in the video, we have an image of what may be a Buk launcher riding on a truck without any canvas or tarp to conceal the launcher. You can see two of the missiles on top. In the animated drawings in the video, that launcher is covered with a tarp so as to be concealed. Even if a tarp was present, do you think that a truck openly carrying a missile launcher down a major roadway is evidence of “smuggling”?
