We hope you don’t feel this way STARTING the New Year, but we have a feeling this is how you’re going to feel ENDING 2011. There are some serious changes coming and not all of them are for the good, or for most people’s well being. Life on this planet Earth is threatened like no time before. It seems like most people could care less. For those of you DO care, the Joe Blow Report wishes you well.
“Unlike this president, John Kennedy was an ironist who never fell for his own mystique.”
Mr. Ajami concludes:
It is true to this history that countless voices on the left now want Obama to be Obama. The economic stimulus, the true believers say, had not gone astray, it only needed to be larger; the popular revolt against ObamaCare would subside if and when a new system was put in place.
There had been that magical moment—the campaign of 2008—and the true believers want to return to it. But reality is merciless. The spell is broken.
Kind of sounds like he was describing the False Messiah, that is if the “False Messiah” was a man. Does Obama’s tenure to date meet the specified lifetime for the “False One” BEFORE Jesus exposes him?
Justice Department officials John Yoo and Jay Bybee were two of the main architects of the Bush administration’s torture program. As Bybee’s deputy, Yoo “was the author of much of the legal rationale for using waterboarding and other severe interrogation techniques.” He argued that interrogators who harm a prisoner would be protected “national and international version of the right to self-defense,” and illegal conduct must “shock the conscience.” Bybee headed the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel and signed off on the infamous 2002 torture memo. Newsweek now reports that a senior DOJ official has essentially cleared the two men of misconduct in an upcoming office of Professional Responsibility report:
While the probe is sharply critical of the legal reasoning used to justify waterboarding and other “enhanced” interrogation techniques, NEWSWEEK has learned that a senior Justice official who did the final review of the report softened an earlier OPR finding. Previously, the report concluded that two key authors — Jay Bybee, now a federal appellate court judge, and John Yoo, now a law professor — violated their professional obligations as lawyers when they crafted a crucial 2002 memo approving the use of harsh tactics, say two Justice sources who asked for anonymity discussing an internal matter. But the reviewer, career veteran David Margolis, downgraded that assessment to say they showed “poor judgment,” say the sources. (Under department rules, poor judgment does not constitute professional misconduct.) The shift is significant: the original finding would have triggered a referral to state bar associations for potential disciplinary action — which, in Bybee’s case, could have led to an impeachment inquiry.
A DOJ official said that Margolis “acted without input” from Attorney General Eric Holder. Emptywheel has more.
MEXICO CITY – Apolinario Chile Pixtun is tired of being bombarded with frantic questions about the Mayan calendar supposedly “running out” on Dec. 21, 2012. After all, it’s not the end of the world.
Or is it?

And our personal favorite from Drunvalo Melchizedek – There are 8 segments, so be sure to listen to all of them:
(Don’t let the German fool you, it’s all English.)
Based upon our observations, something will happen. Exactly what, well . . .
Kind of leary of doing anything real drastic right now, like selling my home and moving to a little higher elevation. Living right on the ocean might not be the smartest thing to be doing. When I was a kid our part of Southern Humboldt was overrun by all the Seventhday Adventists — Something about heading for the hills in preparation for the return of Jesus Christ. Looking back today, I’d say it was probably just a good excuse to get out of LA.
According to Drunvalo Melchizedek whatevers going to happen could happen anytime. Maybe its time to make peace with your God and your neighbor. [Photo]
