Cui Bono?
02/13/2015 10:37:31 AM PST · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | February 13, 2015 | Mona Charen
"Cui bono?" Who benefits? It was the question ancient Romans asked when hoping to cut through a fog of possible causes for a problem. As of this morning, U.S. Marines were evacuating Sanaa, the capital of Yemen. We've seen this movie before: the bonfires of documents, the hammer blows to equipment, the disabling of weapons, the rush to the helicopters. Think Saigon 1973 or Tehran 1979. Only five months ago, President Obama touted his policy toward Yemen as a success: "This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we...

self, letter to my neice | 3/28/20 | Crusher
Recently my niece wrote and asked about my observations relating to the Wuhan Virus pandemic. After much thought I wrote this reply. You may find agreement, disagreement, or simply smack your forehead for any number of reasons. Crusher **************************************** Dear H Thank you for your note and update on y'all's situation and we join you in prayer. We are just hunkered down in the hinterlands where "social isolation" has been the status for any day ending in "Y" just about forever.

Bono Won’t Work With Trump: ‘You Can’t Believe’ What He Says
12/29/2017 11:26:57 AM PST · by rktman · 91 replies ^ | 12/28/2017 | Corinne Weaver
Hollywood and the media are willing to swallow any and all negativity geared towards President Trump and his administration. U2’s lead singer Bono decided to gripe about Trump in his latest interview with Rolling Stone. His complaint? The president and the vice-president did nothing to stop cuts to PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief). But Bono went a step further, saying: “I realized I couldn’t work with this president whether he wanted to or not, because you can’t believe what he says.” Even though the proposed cuts to PEPFAR were never made, Bono, a self-described activist, didn’t thank either...

The hypocrisy of Bono and his ‘One’ charity

NY Post ^ | November 11, 2017 | Paula Froelich
In January 2012, Bono arrived in Timbuktu on a private jet with “ONE” emblazoned on the side, accompanied by his wife, daughters, the designer Renzo Rossi and several others. He had come to the historic city in Mali for a festival celebrating the music of the famous Tuareg tribe. On the night of the event, Bono and his entourage were placed on a small bleacher surrounded by, yet separated from, the thousands of local people via metal traffic barricades and a dozen heavily armed men. Toward the end of the evening, a woman announced that “BONE-no from Youtube” was in...

DWANE(ROCK) JOHNSON/BONO: To BE taken Seriously?
04/05/2018 9:55:50 AM PDT · by DIRTYSECRET · 20 replies

I don't think so. Johnson attended the GOP convention raising antennas, putting out hope he's one of us. Kept us at arms length and his options open. He'll never run for a lower office to get any experience. He wants to be POTUS, as if Trump won only on celebrity, not accomplished executive experience. He seems to be threading the needle on positions-impossible. Doesn't like Trump-taking the easy way out. Bono did the same, praising W for the $15 million in the aids fight in Africa. Hung out with Jesse Hems, Rick Santorum, and the Treasury Secretary whose name I...

The Clarksvillian ^ | March 25, 2021 | Dave McGuire
As the leader of one of the world’s most visible bands, U2’s Bono is an extremely polarizing figure. On one side, he’s the source for some of the greatest, most popular music of a generation. He has also been one of the most charity minded celebrities covering a cause in ways not seen since the days of Harry Chapin. And that crossing between entertainer and activist has pushed people into either loving or hating him.

Cui Bono? Who Benefits From the Afghanistan Withdrawal?
08/31/2021 3:40:34 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | August 31, 2021 | Dennis Prager
How does a leader decide what to do? The most logical response is: "Cui bono?" -- "Who benefits?" -- from the decision. If some policy benefits your country most, you should, within moral bounds, pursue it. If your enemies benefit most, you should avoid it. I'd be curious to learn what answer proponents of America leaving Afghanistan -- conservative or liberal -- would give to the question, "Cui bono?" I can say that until this moment, I have not read or heard a single cogent argument from proponents of American withdrawal as to how exactly it benefits America. "Twenty years...

National Law Journal ^ | May 17, 2016 | Tony Mauro
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Monday that all lawyers should be required to provide pro bono legal services. "I believe in forced labor" when it comes to improving access to justice for the poor, she said during an appearance at the American Law Institute's annual meeting in Washington. "If I had my way, I would make pro bono service a requirement."

Bono on Paris attacks: Nothing's stopping us from going back

AP News via ^ | December 1, 2015
NEW YORK (AP) Bono says despite the deadly attacks in Paris last month, he believes Paris will remain strong and he is hoping U2's concert there this week moves the audience. U2 was set to perform in Paris on Nov. 14 and was in a middle of rehearsing when 130 people were killed in suicide bombings and shootings the day before in what has become the worst attack on French soil in more than a half-century. "Well, knowing our French audience and having a sense of them by now, I would say joy as an act of defiance," he said...

By Kevin “Coach” Collins A recent political cartoon showed a group of “Republican” elephants standing around a body marked, “Boehner” with multiple arrows in its back. One asks, “What now?” A second responds, “Maybe we should have thought this through first.” In just eight words, without realizing it, the propagandist who created the cartoon has epitomized the problem with the Uniparty rule of government. These enemies of freedom just don’t get it. When John Boehner resigned as Speaker he did not do so willingly. As an apparatchik for the Uniparty’s control of our lives, his job was to bludgeon Americans...

Bono at Davos: ‘Capitalism is Not Immoral — It’s Amoral’
01/24/2019 10:29:28 AM PST · by rktman · 82 replies ^ | 1/23/2019 | Julia A. Seymour
U2 frontman Bono at least partly defended capitalism at the 2019 World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland. His remarks came just days after outspoken Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. attacked the “system” and ranted against the coexistence of billionaires and poverty. In contrast to her Democratic-socialist views that such coexistence isn’t a moral result, the liberal Bono credited capitalism with bringing many people out of poverty — but still claimed capitalism “requires our instruction” and called it a “wild beast.” “We have to just ask ourselves deeper questions about where we are with the project called capitalism. Capitalism is not...

U2’s Bono quoted scripture to attack President Trump’s refusal to release illegal aliens into America during a Monday night concert in Washington DC. According to the verified ONE In America Twitter account, while onstage Bono said, “For those who would use the Holy Scripture to justify tearing children from the arms of their mother… we put the record straight.” Bono added, “Jesus said ‘Suffer the little children, forbid them NOT to come onto me’… Not make the little children suffer!”

Consider the primary map and calendar for those who have been fruitlessly trying to get Cruz' second family with Amanda Carter exposed. Who benefits most based on when it broke Friday? Answer: Trump and Cruz. The matter won't nearly harm Cruz as much as the NEastern states as it would have 25 days ago in the South. The blogosphere has been frantically shopping it for six months, and nobody but but the National Enquirer, where Trump holds some sway, ran with it. Only Trump could backchannel manage the controlled release cover the NE can provide, with its bevy of libel...

What Elementary Bit of Wisdom Is Shared by Donald Trump and Bono?
08/05/2015 11:01:32 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | August 5, 2015 | Daniel J. Mitchell
If I asked you what Donald Trump and Bono have in common, the easy and accurate answer is that they both have lots of money. But if I asked you to identify a shared perspective by the two men, at first glance that would seem to be a much harder question. After all, it seems like a rock star and a real-estate tycoon are about as different as two people could possibly be. Yet the answer should be obvious. At least if you answer “no” to the first question and “yes” to the second question. I’ll give you a big...

Freitag said authorities don't understand why the door flew off.

Irish rock star Bono praised Ukraine's fight for "freedom" during a performance in a metro station in downtown Kyiv Sunday, where the U2 frontman also issued his own prayer "for peace". From the platform of a Kyiv metro station, the 61-year-old rock icon belted out U2 classics "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "Desire" and "With or without you". "The people in Ukraine are not just fighting for your own freedom, you are fighting for all of us who love freedom," said Bono during a break.

“We have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,” said Joe Biden on October 24, and duly confirmed on November 3. With Trump holding a lead in critical states, the voting suddenly stopped and harvested ballots came pouring in for Biden. Mail ballots had been handled by a postal union that endorsed Joe Biden, a clear conflict of interest. No identification required, ballots backdated, poll workers shielded from observation, and so forth. Plenty to see here, but not for Attorney General William Barr. “To date, we have not seen fraud on...

American Thinker ^ | 04/08/2021 | Robert T. Smith
Turmoil seems to be the daily goal of certain persons in the political class and much of the media. We have for a while been jolted from one alleged existential crisis to the next. Apparently on purpose, we are triggered by partial explanations and depictions to feel something as an emotion they have predetermined on our behalf, not provided information for thoughtful consideration of complicated issues. Cui bono? Who benefits from triggering pre-selected emotional and not rational thought? On a now daily basis, all manner of people pour over our southern border and are then exported throughout the country. There...
