Kernels - Friday, June 27, 2014

by Mark  


Welcome to the latest edition of Kernels From the Cornfield - No Husks, No Hulls, No Shucks!

News with a dash of commentary to spice up your fare for Friday, June 27th, 2014.

1. Norte Rio Grande - A Mexican police helicopter entered into US airspace in Arizona early this morning firing shots near US Border Guards. The Mexican government apologized and said it was a mistake. No one was injured and it is not known who the Mexican authorities may have been chasing. The area is known to have drug cartel activity.

2. Droning On - Armed US military drones are now flying the not-so-friendly skies over Baghdad. This is on top of reports that Iraq is buying fighter jets from Russia which may require Russian pilots to operate.

In the meantime the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues to grab territory and take more control of the nation at war with itself.

Looks like the Kurds in the northern autonomous region are preparing to proclaim a Kurdish state independent of unity with Iraq.

The question remains: Why are we bothering to meddle when the Iraqi Shiite government continues to align with those not so favorable to the US or to our ideals of liberty?

Did you hear about the addditional 1,000 Marines joining the other 1,000 Marines on standby in the Persian Gulf?

3.Nervous Saudis - With ISIS continuing to take ground in Iraq the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is beginning to worry about when ISIS or other terrorists organizations may set sight on the home of Islam's holiest of holies.

5. Tragedy or Homicide? - It's beginning to look like a father who "forgot" his almost two-year-old son in a hot car while he worked may not have been an accident after all, but rather a homicide.

Information found on the computer used by the toddler's father, Justin Ross Harris, who has been arrested on a charge of murder, indicate that someone did a search on how long it takes animals to die in hot cars.

It is not known whether it was Harris or someone else who conducted the internet searches or when those searches occurred.

Part of me wants to believe this was a tragic accident in Georgia. Another part of me wonders how a father could forget his son in a car seat in a closed vehicle for eight hours while he worked.

6. Lost, But Found - The strange tale of a 12-year-old boy lost for two weeks then found in his father's basement after the house and basement had been searched repeatedly by Detroit Police and the FBI is becoming more bizarre all the time.

Now the story is his step-mother may have been abusing the boy. The step-mother has now been arrested for a probation violation unrelated to the boy's disapperance.

The story seems incredulous, but kids, especially boys, have been known to pull some pretty talented stunts. Was this a stunt or a plea for attention?

7. Not Giving Up - Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel who tried to upset Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran in a coup attempt during the GOP run-off election Tuesday is vowing to fight on and not cede the floor. McDaniel is crying, "Foul", over Cochran reaching out to black Democrats to put him over the top in the open run-off election.

Time for McDaniel to step back and wait until the next door opens rather than nailing the door shut by refusing to bow to the voters.

A former McDaniel campaign worker has apparently committed suicide after being exposed in a conspiracy to take candid pictures of Cochran's invalid wife.

8. Cornfield Equality - My life-partner of nearly 10 years, Iohn, and I decided Thursday to take advantage of the change in status to seek legal recognition of our relationship on Saturday.

This morning Iohn called the Clerk of Court's office to insure the county was complying with the judge's ruling. The person in the Clerk's office on the other end of the line told Iohn that the county would issue a license to a same-gender couple, BUT the county did not have the "right paperwork" to do so.

Read the full story: Creative Way to Say 'No' to Equality.

Check out my position on the issue: Equality - Where I Stand.

9. Tug of War - President Barack Obama and the Congress - especially the Republican-controlled House of Representatives - are involved in an intense contest of Tug of War. It's the classic battle that has raged since the beginning of the Republic between the Legislative and Executive Branches.

The current tussle is the Executive Branch (the President) trying to legislate through excutive orders while the Legislative Branch (the House) attemtping to administrate the departments and bureaucracies under the President.

Time for the President to concentrate on executing the legislation enacted by Congress as written, passed and signed into law. Time for the Congress to work together, write and pass legislation for the good of the country and leave it to the President to faithfully execute those laws.

True the President was spanked by the third branch, the Judiciary, Thursday for acting unconstitutionally by trying to dictate to the Legislature what is and isn't a recess. The Judiciary, however, hates to get involved in these high-testosterone beefs.

There are constitutional questions, which the recess appointments were, and then there are political questions. Most of what we are seeing play out falls directly into the political arena.

Find a way to work together or voters (those who actually pay attention and vote) may get fed up and neither Executive or Legislative will be happy.

As People's Court Judge Marilyn Millian would say, "It's time for a little rough justice" from the voters.

10. Ask and They Will Vote - If the Republican Party is serious about reaching out beyond just old, white folk and winning elections and a shot at the White House, it would behoove the Grand Old Party to listen up.

Right or wrong, Cochran had the right idea in Mississippi. If you want the black vote or any other minority or segment of society, you have to get out into the neighborhoods and ask for the vote.

McDaniels has it wrong to be complaining that because Cochran went out and knocked on the doors of black, traditionally Democratic voters, doors the Senator tainted the party's vote.

No, Cochran was expanding the party.

Many voters, everywhere, either stay home or vote a party line simply because no one bothered to stop by and make them feel their vote mattered.

Republicans, want the vote? Then ask. Get out into the communities and prove you appreciate every vote.

Democrats don't get too comfortable and assume you have a given demographic's vote sewn up. You also have to stay in touch.

That's what caught my attention for Friday, June 27th, 2014.

Tune in Monday for another episode of Kernels From the Cornfield.

Good evening!

THIS JUST IN at 9:25 p.m.: Mexico denies firing shots from helicopter.

Kernels - Thursday, June 26, 2014

by Mark  


Welcome to the latest edition of Kernels From the Cornfield - No Husks, No Hulls, No Shucks!

News with a dash of commentary to spice up your fare for Thursday, June 26th, 2014.

1. Man of the People - For a political junkie like me the news struck close to the heart to learn today that former Tennessee Senator, former White House Chief of Staff for President Ronald Reagan, son-in-law of the late, great Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, Howard Baker passed away.

No matter how high in the pinnacles of political power Baker climbed, he always remembered the folk at home in Tennessee and remained a Man of the People, much like Dirksen. Baker is now part of the War Room in heaven plotting the political machinations of the celestial powers.

Thoughts and prayers to his family and a hearty wish from the Cornfield that Baker rest in peace.

2. President Rebuffed - Unanimously, for a second day in a row, the Supreme Court ruled that President Barack Obama had overstepped his authority to make appointments to fill vacancies when the Senate was not formally in recess when he appointed three members to the National Labor Relations Board.

The Justices, while acknowledging the Presidency's constitutional authority during recess to make such appointments, the Court found that in the case before it that pro forma sessions did mean that the Senate was still in session and had not recessed.

At jeopardy now are thousands of decisions handed down by the illegally appointed NLRB commissioners. It is not known what uproar this may cause in labor and business circles.

Don't expect, however, that Speaker of the House John Boehner may have as easy of a go at getting the Judiciary to hear his announced upcoming suit against the President to make it through the front door.

3. No Abridgement of Free Speech - In another decision, the Supremes said that a 35-foot buffer in front of abortion clinics as prescribed by Massachusetts' law was an abridgement of the constitutional protection of free speech. The Court did leave room for the state to rework the law within guidelines to protect the clinics from violence.

4. What's Your Political Color? - A new Pew Research study stated:

"Partisan polarization ? the vast and growing gap between Republicans and Democrats ? is a defining feature of politics today. But beyond the ideological wings, which make up a minority of the public, the political landscape includes a center that is large and diverse, unified by frustration with politics and little else. As a result, both parties face formidable challenges in reaching beyond their bases to appeal to the middle of the electorate and build sustainable coalitions."

Find out where you stand politically by taking the "Political Typology Quiz" at People-Press.Org.

Here is what the quiz revealed about me:

"Your best fit is...Business Conservative along with 10% of the public."

5. Dog Ate My Homework: Part 2 - First it was the IRS saying that emails were lost and cannot be recovered. No one is buying into that excuse.

Now it's the Environmental Protection Agency saying that its emails were also gobbled up by the mysterious web monster consuming cyber documents. Again a faulty hard drive is being blamed for the lost emails from a biologist on a controversial mining project.

For an Administration that vaunts itself on how tech savvy it is, these geeks sure seem to have major issues with what we all know never disappears once in cyber space.

6. Arming 'Vetted' Syrian Rebels - This coming in late, President Barack Obama is asking Congress for $500 million to arm and train "vetted" Syrian rebels.

Remember the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which is laying waste to Iraq, is also the driving force in the Syrian rebellion.

Inquiring and skeptical minds want to know:

How much of that $500 million if approved will find its way into the coffers of ISIS?

7. Give Me 2 Big Gulps - The Nanny State was handed a blow today when New York State's highest court struck down former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg's ban on large size sugary drinks. The Court ruled that the city overreached and could not tell consumers what size of soft drink they were allowed to purchase and consume.

8. Cornfield Equality - Since yesterday's ruling that Indiana's ban on equality for same-gender, long-term couples was unconstitutional, couples have been lining up to get a license and wed.

While Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said the state would appeal the ruling, Governor Michael Pence, a well-known social conservative, stated that during the appeals process the state would abide by the judge's order.

One county in the Cornfield is refusing to issue licenses to same-gender couples. That county, fortunately it wasn't my home county of Sullivan, but nearby Daviess County. The County Clerk said she was standing on biblical principles until she is given a specific order from the court to issue licenses to same-gender couples.

So far, no one has applied for a license in Sullivan County. Until then we may not know if Sullivan County will or will not honor that license application.

Check out my position: Equality - Where I Stand.

9. Sorry Sports Fans - Sad news out of the rain-drenched Brazilian rain forest today. The US soccer team lost to Germany 1-0. But take heart, the US team is still in the game and may yet win the World Cup thanks to Ghana losing to Portugal.

If you recall Ghana and the US played to a draw, but the US defeated Portugal on Sunday. This keeps hope alive for Team USA.

10. Pulling a Pharoah - After other nations put on the pressure yet again, the Sudanese Christian woman who was released from prison then re-arrested when trying to leave the country, is once more free.

Will this time be for good?

We can only hope that the government of Sudan has finally seen the Light.

That's what caught my attention for Thursday, June 26th, 2014.

Kernels - Wednesday, June 25, 2014

by Mark  


Welcome to the latest edition of Kernels From the Cornfield - No Husks, No Hulls, No Shucks!

News with a dash of commentary to spice up your fare for Wednesday, June 25th, 2014.

1. What's for Dinner? - All the major news organizations are reporting blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Even your ever-diligent Kernels is ladling up blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Throwing in a pinch of salt and pepper now and then, we are still being fed blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

With that said, here's your daily regimen of blah.

2. Police Powers Curbed - Unanimously, the Supreme Court ruled today that your cell phone is sacrosanct. If police want to start scrolling through call history or anything else on your mobile device, they must obtain a search warrant.

With so much of our lives now being stored on the handheld piece of electronics, it is not surprising that the Supremes ruled as the 4th Amendment requires to prevent unreasonable searches and seizures.

3. Play then Pay - In another decision, the Supremes told Aereo that if the company wants to play broadcast network programs, the company has to pay. Technological advances doesn't rub out copyright protections.

4. 'Let Them Eat Cake' - Sounding like Marie Antoinette, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki today ruled out a unity government of Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds. His country may be burning and going up in smoke, but he's not about to share power or play nice with others.

So what if half the country now is under control of the opposition. That's no reason to reach an accord that will keep the country together.

Besides Maliki has Iran, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and even the US of A propping up his tinhorn dictatorship.

For those who didn't catch it earlier today, alledgedly Syrian war planes bombed ISIS areas near the border inside Iraq killing civilians. Syria - that's the nation embroiled in a civil war in which our government is supporting the rebels against that government.

We already heard that two battalions of Iran's Quud force were in Iraq. Today we are hearing that Iran is flying surveillance drones in the neighboring country as well.

Cut the apron strings!

Let Maliki twist in the wind.

5. Ready for Pasture? - Apparently not.

Republican Senator Thad Cochran beat back a challenge from Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel in Mississippi Tuesday by reaching out to all voters - mainly black Democrats - to put him over the top.

And in New York's Harlem district, it looks as if Charlie Rangel has won a ride back to Capitol Hill even though his primary challenger is refusing to concede.

6. Economic Shrinkage - Blame the weather if you want, but it is being reported that the US economy shrank 2.9% for the first quarter of 2014.

That's the most dismal the economy has been since 2009.

The stock market, however, continues on its merry way. It shrugged, then seemed to say who cares about the GDP.

Many Americans are still not feeling the economy has turned the corner for the better.

7. Suing the President - House Speaker John Boehner, Republican from Ohio, announced that he will be going to court to get the third branch of government, the Judiciary, to weigh in on the President's misuse of his Executive Branch authority to go around the Legislative Branch.

Generally the courts have been reluctant to step in such feuds between its two co-equal branches of government. Generally the Judiciary expects the Legislative and Executive to knock heads until a compromise is reached.

8. Equality in the Cornfield? - Could it be true or am I only dreaming?

Did a federal judge strike down Indiana's law barring equality to long-term, same-gender couples?

US District Judge Richard Young ruled the Hoosier law violated guarantees of equal protection and due process. The judge refused to stay his order, which is making same-gender marriages legal immediately in the Cornfield.

Also the 10th District US Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Utah's ban on equality is unconstitutional, confirming a federal judge's ruling back in December. This is the same court which will rule on the constitutionality of Oklahoma's ban on equality which was also struck down by a federal judge.

Utah is appealing the latest ruling directly to the Supreme Court.

9. Stripped? - The Russian Parliament is reported to have stripped President Valdimir Putin of the authority to use force in and against Ukraine. Naturally, Putin's people are saying he asked the Parliament to do that.

10. Pulling a Pharoah - Reminiscent of Pharoah first telling Moses to lead the descendants of Jacob out of Egypt only to change his mind and try to stop the Exodus with his chariots and horses, the Sundanese government, which released a woman who had been sentenced to death for being a Christian, re-arrested the woman and her husband at the airport as they were leaving the country.

Will a new international outcry rise to the heavens and Sudan once more agree to let her go?

That's what caught my attention for Wednesday, June 25th, 2014.

Kernels - Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Good evening, I am Mark Ivy.

Welcome to the latest edition of Kernels From the Cornfield - No Husks, No Hulls, No Shucks!

News with a dash of commentary to spice up your fare for Tuesday, June 24th, 2014.

1. Eyes Wide Shut? - Was President Barack Obama and the US intelligence community caught with their pants down on the sudden victory and march of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or did the White House close its eyes to what was happening because it worked against the President's legacy for bringing the troops home from Iraq?

Read my op-ed on the subject that may open some of our eyes: Intelligence Failure or Eyes Shut?

This is especially interesting since 90 to 130 advisers are now in Iraq to assess the Iraqi military. We also have 1,000 troops off the coast. Currently the US is flying 30 missions per day over Iraq.

Eyes shut or intelligence failure?

You be the judge.

2. Worser and Worser - How low can the Veterans Affairs Administration sink?

Even after CNN brought to light the failings with the VA in Phoenix, we now are learning that the cover-up got worse. Names were removed or appointment schedules were changed to hide how many veterans died while waiting on care.

Appoint a special prosecutor and clean house. Start over if necessary.

Veterans and their families have complained about VA care for decades. Why is it only now with the CNN report that Congress and the general public are paying attention?

3. True or False? - The United Nations is reporting that Syria no longer possesses chemical weapons.

Can we really be sure of the validity of this claim?

Time will tell.

4. 'Words Are Cheap' - That's what Secretary of State John Kerry said about the "promises" being made by officials in Iraq. Kerry should know.

For the second time in as many days, Kerry is back in Iraq. This time he is in the autonomous Kurdish northern region with Kurdish President Massoud Barzzani. But he doesn't seem to be hearing what the Kurds are saying.

It's a new day in Iraq. It is a new Iraq - one which won't be united.

Hard to have a meeting of minds when Kerry is holding to a Western mindset which runs a polar opposite to the Mideastern way of thinking where loyalties lie - not with a nation, but with tribes, religious sects or ethnic identity.

5. Ready for Pasture? - Will voters in Mississippi and New York decide that Senator Thad Cochran and Representative Charlie Rangel are too old to keep serving in Congress?

For Cochran, black Democrats may be the key to his future in the state's open primary system.

Later tonight we will learn if voters decided to turn two of the longest serving members out to pasture.

6. Doth Protest Too Much - Former President Bill Clinton and former First Lady Hillary Clinton are protesting too much about their wealth. The more the politically powerful duo try to explain their money situation and how in touch with ordinary Americans they are, the more distant they sound.

Let the sound bytes die. Let the news cycle move on. This is not a winner for Clinton's presidential ambitions.

On a side note: Looks like First Lady Michelle Obama is paving the way for Hillary to run. Today she said that the sooner the nation elects a woman president, the better.

7. Regional War - The situation in Iraq should more appropriately be seen as the civil war in Syria spilling over into Iraq. ISIS forces have now taken control of the border not just with Syria, but also neighboring Jordan. Reports are coming in late this evening that the war may be sloshing out and into the Hashemite Kingdom. The conflict could see the entire region engulfed in flames.

By the way, ISIS forces in Iraq have grown to 10,000 strong.

8. Unbelievable - How can the IRS and the White House keep singing, "That's My Story and I'm Sticking to It"? The agency and the Administration are looking as bad as the singer.

Time to come clean. To be politically incorrect: Time to man up.

9. Schism in the Church - After a United Methodist minister was defrocked for the "sin" of refusing to say if he would perform a same-gender wedding ceremony in the future after he officiated at a ceremony for his gay son and his partner, the denomination's appeals panel overturned that decision. The pastor may return to the pulpit.

But supporters of same-gender equality, even in the Church, don't get too excited. The question of whether the sect was moving toward acceptance of same-gender weddings was not at issue.

The defrocking was overturned because the panel ruled that the minister was being punished for what he may do in the future - not for any "sin" or wrongdoing already committed.

The debate of whether the New Covenant allows for equality for same-gender couples remains debated. Some denominations such as the United Church of Christ and the Presbyterian Church (USA) have decided that grace covers all unions - opposite gender and same gender.

10. 168 - That's the number of children rescued by the FBI from sex traffickers last week. In an annual crackdown on such human trash mongers called Operation Cross Country, the FBI swooped in rescuing the children from the unbelievable sex slavery market.

Many of those children had never been reported missing making the tragic state of inhumanity even more tragic.

The children were rescued from life on the streets in 106 cities. This is the eight such operation which has rescued 3,600 children.

God bless the children. As Jesus said in His day, it is better that these sub-humans who prey on the weakest among us had never been born.

That's what caught my attention for Tuesday, June 24th, 2014.

Kernels - Monday, June 23, 2014

Good evening, I am Mark Ivy.

Welcome to the latest edition of Kernels From the Cornfield - No Husks, No Hulls, No Shucks!

News with a dash of commentary to spice up your fare for Monday, June 23rd, 2014.

1. Eyes Wide Shut? - Was President Barack Obama and the US intelligence community caught with their pants down on the sudden victory and march of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or did the White House close its eyes to what was happening because it worked against the President's legacy for bringing the troops home from Iraq?

Read my op-ed on the subject that may open some of our eyes: Intelligence Failure or Eyes Shut?

2. Now That Didn't Hurt - Yeah, right! But that's what the Veterans Affairs Inspector General's Office is telling veterans who have been denied care for years with untenable waits. The IG even stated that a veteran with mental illness who waited for eight years for an appointment and treatment suffered no harm.

This ranks right up there with the IRS losing two years of emails because one computer's hard drive died. What is certain is the VA cannot police itself. The entire VA system is broken.

Time for the President and Congress to bring in an independent outsider to start smacking heads together and pruning off the dead wood.

Congress, for all its outrage, has been complicit in allowing what has been known for years as shortcomings with the VA to go on unchecked. Last week's near unanimous votes to allow veterans to seek civilian care does not wipe away those years of turning a blind eye.

3. Let Baghdad Fall - A CNN iReporter asked the question over the weekend if the US of A should let Baghdad fall. Overwhelmingly those who commented said to let the Persian Gulf nation splinter and burn. The only thing worth saving according to those who commented was Iraq's oil resources.

I see no upside for the US in this battle between religious factions and ethnic identity. Perhaps allowing the country to fracture into a Sunni nation, a Shiite nation and a Kurd nation may be the best thing.

But do we want ISIS to have a base of its own to threaten not only us, but the world?

Yet, Secretary of State John Kerry today told Iraqi leaders they must unite against ISIS.

Iraqi leaders unite?

Does Kerry really believe the Iraqis can unite as one people?

Is the neo-conservative position of "regime change" again part of the State Department's lexicon?

4. Taking a Stand - Unlike the Iraqi army which keeps making "strategic retreats", the Kurdish military in northern Iraq have not only seized another 260 miles of territory, the troops have kept ISIS forces at bay.

Seems the Kurds have decided, "They shall not pass."

This has Turkey with a large population of Kurds and Iran worried that the Kurds may push for full autonomy and a state of its own rather than remaining under the umbrella of Iraq.

Is Kurdistan in the near future and claiming its seat in the United Nations?

5. "I Saw the Light" - Is that the song the government of Sudan is singing today after it set free a woman who was found guilty of being a Christian?

The woman who refused to denounce her faith had been sentenced to death for holding on to Jesus' nail-scarred hands.

She has been put through the fiery furnace, but apparently the Truth and her faith has won her liberty.

6. Wings Clipped - That's what happened to the Environmental Protection Administration today when the Supreme Court handed down an unfavorbable ruling citing that the agency had exceeded its authority.

The ruling is sure to incite environmentalists.

The case involved the EPA's efforts to curb greenhouse gases and carbon emissions. The Court said the agency had broad authority to regulate power plants and factories, but went beyond the scope of its authority granted by Congress.

According to Justice Antonin Scalia, "We are not willing to stand on the dock and wave goodbye as EPA embarks on a multiyear voyage of discovery."

He went on to add, it was "patently unreasonable ? not to say outrageous ? for EPA to insist on seizing expansive power that it admits the statute is not designed to grant."

A further bruising came from the accusation the EPA was "laying claim to extravagant statutory power over the national economy.?

But don't think for a minute that the EPA's teeth and talons are any less sharp.

7. Puhleese! - Don't insult my intelligence.

Expected Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over the weekend said that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, were not like the other one percenters because she and her husband pay taxes like everyone else.

Forget that she hasn't driven a vehicle herself since the mid 90s, but is chaffeured wherever she goes.

True, the Clintons may not have a huge investment portfolio which is taxed at a lower rate than the progressive scale used for calculating income taxes.

True, the Clintons may be paying out based on that scale like the rest of ordinary Americans do.

But don't think it means it puts you down in the trenches with us 99 percenters.

When you are paying millions of dollars in taxes, you are not ordinary people struggling to make ends meet.

8. Forget Foreign Failures - President Barack Obama in an interview with CNN New Day host, Kate Bolduan, indicated that Americans and Congress should turn their focus to domestic issues rather than paying attention to what is happening on the world stage.

While I agree we need to take care of our own, turning a blind eye to the world didn't work prior to World War I nor World War II. Out of sight and out of mind won't keep us safe.

The President told Bolduan, "Every single day, there are conversations around the kitchen table where people are trying to figure out, this child care is costing so much, I'm not sure that we're going to be able to make our mortgage at the end of the month. There are folks who are saying, 'Little Johnny is sick, but if I don't show up at my job, because I don't have paid family leave, we're not going to be able to pay the electricity bill.' "

And of course the President thinks more government is the answer.

9. Fill in the Blank - How would you complete this phrase: My American Dream is________.

I completed the sentence at FromTheCornfield.com: The American Dream to Me.

10. Bone to Sports Fanatics - The US of A soccer team proved they are a force to be reckoned with in Sunday's match-up with Portugal. Team USA played the Portuguese to a 2-2 draw and have a shot at the World Cup. Next match - Germay. Go Team USA!

That's what caught my attention for Monday, June 23rd, 2014.
