Not here, not there, not anywhere, nope

Here’s a little diddy I was thinking about.

Bush_announces_Operation_Iraqi_Freedom_2003Remember the old roasting routine Bush did where he was poking fun by looking everywhere for WMD?

Well, now funny as that was, let’s give Bush some credit now. Applause, well at least he was looking for it. We have to hand it to him for that.

Now we have Obama who would not see Islamic terrorism if it was right in front of his Kenyan face. And whatever ISIS might be, it sure is not Islamic. Nope.

How come the libs aren’t laughing at Obama?

Strange benefits become problems

Oil, oil everywhere and not a place to put it. That is the state of the coming problem analysts see headed for us. Well, there could be worse problems to have.

According to a writer for Motley Fool, they have a prediction for gas prices this summer you might not dislike.

Why Gas Could Plunge Below $2 a Gallon This Summer

Rising oil inventories in the U.S. could lead to sharply lower prices at the pump this summer.

Travis Hoium Mar 26th 2015 | Daily Finance

The price of gasoline has plunged 30 percent in the past year to $2.45 a gallon nationwide, giving major relief to American consumers. Plunging oil prices have driven the drop and have given a reprieve to consumers who have been paying nearly $4 a gallon for gas for most of the past four years.
But the discount on gasoline may not be over. Just as the summer driving season approaches, drivers may get another reprieve. This time, the oil boom that is driving the U.S. toward energy independence could backfire and provide a massive discount on gas for consumers. Within a few months, we may be below $2 a gallon again.

So we are in for a summer of surprise, that at least has more credibility than Obama’s summer of recovery that never came. But I’m sure Obama will find a way to personalize this to his credit, at the same time warning of Climate Change Armageddon.

Lunacy in action

Lunatic alert: this time in Ithaca, NY at Cornell University campus. How dumb can a dean be? See the article.

“Scaffido casually endorses inviting an ISIS “freedom fighter’’ to conduct a “training camp” for students at the upstate Ithaca campus — bizarrely likening the activity to a sports camp.” – NY Post

Obviously he is a top contender for some kind of award from academia. That probably deserves one, to malign them as “freedom fighters” when they are anything but.

Clinton’s bag man

To use an analogy, how is it that we only find out about the fire after all the smoke is gone? It’s like insult to injury to later on say, ‘oh by the way, we had a bad fire.’ But that is the way I view all this disturbing information coming out almost weekly.

Salon: ‘Massive Clinton Fundraising Operation’ Inside State Dept. Raked in Cash for Hillary

by Breitbart News — 21 Mar 2015

Editor’s Note: This excerpt, from a book by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, first appeared on the left-wing site Salon. We reprint in part here. 

Hillary tapped Kris Balderston, the hit list author, to keep the Clinton political network humming at State. A longtime lieutenant to both Clintons, Balderston, who called everyone “buddy,” liked to talk in salesman’s terms about Hillary’s “power to convene” and her commitment to making sure her partners could “do well by doing good.” What he meant was that Hillary could use the Clinton Rolodex to focus private-sector money, government power, and the expertise at colleges and nonprofits to solve global problems. At best, they would do a public service and make a buck. At worst, they would make a powerful friend. Balderston became, for lack of a better term, Hillary’s special ops guy at State.
 He wrote Hillary the first memo on his concept for an office that would mirror Bill’s Clinton Global Initiative on December 8, 2008, less than a week after she was named to her job and more than six weeks before she took office. Though she had to wait for some of her lieutenants to clear the Obama vetting process and a Senate confirmation vote, she had made it a priority to empower Balderston, the political fixer who could help her build unique networks connecting her State Department to other government agencies, the nonprofit sector, and the corporate world. While many Democrats believe that government is the answer to the world’s problems, and many Republicans believe the same of the private sector, Balderston’s office was the embodiment of Hillary’s core Clintonian belief that government, business, and charitable organizations are all vital components of a thriving society.
“It’s more than raising money,” said one source familiar with the concept. “It’s networking other people’s intellectual property, networks, lists, that sort of thing. You need somebody who does more than just raise money.” Just like the Clinton Global Initiative.
But intellectual property and network expansion would have to wait—Hillary needed cash. Balderston was still setting up the office when Hillary approached him at the end of February 2009. “I have the first project for you,” she said. The job: raise more than $60 million from the private sector in nine months. In an era of billion-dollar presidential campaigns, that might not sound like much jack. But the government generally doesn’t raise money from the private sector, in large part because of the potential for corporate donors to give with the expectation that they will get specific government actions in return. Moreover, Congress and the Bush administration had shunned the very initiative Hillary wanted Balderston to execute.

Read the complete excerpt.

H/T to Pepp for the article

Behind every good politician is a fixer, as I like to say. Hillary knew exactly what she was doing when she brought him on board the Good Ship Clinton. Imagine the table talk at the Clinton house. Here was the premier Clinton Global Initiative on Bill’s plate, and on Hillary’s the keys to the often-overlooked kingdom at State Department. Whatever could be the problem with that? Conversation must have been enchanting. Of course you’d need someone like Balderston to occasionally make sure the dots get connected properly and that the trains run on time, or the wheels get oiled properly.

With the Clintons, it seems you never have to look far for a fixer or bag-man to do the necessary dirty work.You know, like Sandy Berger types. Considering Clintons’ upper status, after years in the making, one expects the landscape must be littered with them from Hope to Chappaqua. It would seem natural, for the Clintons that is. Then her top aide, Huma Mahmood Abedin, would probably be intimately involved with the network.

So what better thing to have than your own communication network and server? Who else but Clintons could get away with that setup, for as long with no one raising their eyebrows at it? I factor that into Hillary’s demand to stand up the outpost at Benghazi by the end of the fiscal year, which is what Stevens was doing. So Hillary leaves a trail, but we don’t seem to hear about it till long after the fact.

Advocacy for death

I’ll post this piece because I was so struck by it. I guess suicide advocacy is on the rise though it still sounds like a marginal idea to me. But what was marginal 50 years ago is not so much now. Wesley Smith does an excellent job explaining the ideas.

Family-Supported Suicide Harms Society

by Wesley J. Smith March 21, 2015 | National Review – The Corner

There was once a time when friends, family, and society worked to prevent suicides. Now, if the suicidal person is ill or disabled, there is support for self-killing, with friends and family members even attending the deed.

That–and what it may portend–is the subject of my biweekly First Things. From, “Family-Support Suicide and the Duty to Die:”

Is it right or wrong to support a loved one’s suicide? This seems to be one of those issues, increasingly prevalent in our society, about which debate is not possible: The answer depends on one’s overarching worldview.

Some will believe that their duty is to support their family member’s choice, come what may. Others, including this writer, believe that supporting suicide is an abandonment that validates loved ones’ worst fears about themselves—that they are a burden, unworthy of love, or truly better off dead.

What might this phenomenon portend?

Family backing for suicide furthers the normalization of hastened death as a proper response to human suffering. Such normalization, over time, will put increasing pressure on those coping with the infirmities of age and with the debilitations of serious illnesses and disabilities to view their suicides as not only a suitable approach, but perhaps even as an obligation to those they love.

This is known in bioethics as the “duty to die,” which has been debated for years in professional discourse.

I quote some advocacy material for a duty to die:

A duty to die becomes greater as you grow older. . . . To have reached the age of, say, seventy-five or eighty years without being ready to die is itself a moral failing, the sign of a life out of touch with life’s basic realities.

This isn’t a fringe idea. Books have been written on the topic. I conclude:

No, a day won’t come when the euthanasia police kick down doors and force unwanted lethal injections upon the sick and elderly. But legal compulsion isn’t the only way to push people out of the lifeboat. The more public support families and friends give their ill or debilitated loved ones’ suicides, the greater the prospect that a moral duty to die will become culturally legitimate.

Again, I don’t see how we debate this. Either we want such a society, or we don’t.

Seems to be two issues here, what they are doing — or is it we — and the industry it has become. Neither of which bodes well for society.

The Obama anti-Israel agenda

Remember all those statements(let’s say lies) how relations with Israel have never been better and Israel has never had a better ally or friend than Obama’s administration? Well, someone has chronicled a list showing the truth in a timeline.

We knew Obama’s bitter hatred went beyond Netanyahu to Israel itself.We knew but his puppet media played along and sang the song of no better friend to Israel than Obama. Any sane-thinking person knew that was a lie.

But if you keep repeating that line, some maybe not all will believe you. All he needed was that loyal some who would repeat that mantra. While at the same time being in bed with the BDS movement and the anti-Semitism rampant on the left. That never stopped them from claiming the contrary at every opportunity. It worked: they can be Israel haters while claiming they are its best buds. It really is a schizophrenic thing.

A Complete Timeline of Obama’s Anti-Israel Hatred

by Ben Shapiro20 Mar 2015 | Brietbart

On Thursday, the press announced that the Obama administration would fully consider abandoning Israel in international bodies like the United Nations.

According to reports, President Obama finally called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him – but the “congratulations” was actually a lecture directed at forcing Netanyahu to surrender to the terrorist Palestinian regime.

For some odd reason, many in the media and Congress reacted with surprise to Obama’s supposedly sudden turn on Israel. The media, in an attempt to defend Obama’s radicalism, pretend that Netanyahu’s comments in the late stages of his campaign prompted Obama’s anti-Israel action.

But, in truth, this is the culmination of a longtime Obama policy of destroying the US-Israel relationship; Obama has spent his entire life surrounded by haters of Israel, from former Palestine Liberation Organization spokesman Rashid Khalidi to former Jimmy Carter National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, pro-Hamas negotiator Robert Malley to UN Ambassador Samantha Power (who once suggested using American troops to guard Palestinians from Israelis), Jeremiah Wright (who said “Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me”) to Professor Derrick Bell (“Jewish neoconservative racists…are undermining blacks in every way they can”). Here is a concise timeline, with credit to Dan Senor and the editors of Commentary:

Read more>

See the list, it’s like exhibit A of a rebuttal to their claims. But lying has always been second nature to Obama. (or first nature) It is great when you can say one thing while doing the exact opposite. No better friends, never been closer? Sorry, I want to barf.

Now he turns to disengage with that alliance with Israel in the UN, or basically wherever it still matters. Yet people are supposed to accept his sophistry and specious reasoning as verifiable. Well, it could be certifiable behavior. Still the Left follows him like robots.

He was only looking for an opportunity to justify his actions, so he used Bibi and his speech.(never let a crisis/speech go to waste) Except his actions are aimed at Israel. Netanyahu is just a convenient excuse. Maybe he should thank Bibi for being a scapegoat for his plans?

Adding insult to the injury, what has that position got us: more respect, more friends? No. The other countries hate us just as much, or possibly more because now they see friction between us and Israel. They see conflict, disagreement, distrust, bitterness, resentment and hatred — fruits of a love gone bad . Team Obama wears that on their sleeve. Every step or move Obama makes, he must make the one against Israel.

Worse yet, up until now he hasn’t shown his full hatred. He conceals it like Hillary does her records, but it is on display for all to see. Now he is just making the separation official, as in filing the divorce papers. It’s all there.

Let the show…go on

Attention, now for our next performance under the Big Top:

Drum roll, please.

Hillary Clinton will now attempt to run on her record by running from her records!

Please remain quiet as she performs this career-defying feat.

Folks,  whatever happens may require the willing suspension of disbelief.

Enjoy the show!

Note: Kids, DO NOT try this at home! Hillary is a skilled professional.

What state are we in?

… who is in our state or something like that?

“4-Star Admiral Slams Obama: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated All Of Our National Security Agencies”

Published on Jan 28, 2015
During a press conference on how to combat radical Islamic extremism, Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons (U.S. Navy, Ret.), former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet, stated that under the leadership of Barack Obama the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated all of the National Security Agencies of the United States. Furthermore, Lyons said that Obama is deliberately unilaterally disarming the military and spoke to the need for the new GOP controlled congress and Military leaders to stand up to the administration and uphold their oaths.

Mandatory voting….bring it on Obama

The Obama administration cannot even enforce the voter laws we have now, yet the prick-in-chief thinks it is wise to have mandatory voting.

Yep, Obama, try to enforce that. I could see the first time Feds hauled somebody “in” for not voting would cause a tidal wave the likes of which Al Gore never imagined.

Then if you really, really want to see administrations, politicians, and police all conspiring and involved in a witch hunt for political gain….knock your socks off and go for it. The rest of us sane people know that is asking for trouble. It should be listed as one of the worst ideas Obama ever had — there’s some stiff competition.

It would be the death-knell for Acorn and its affiliates. But Obama would probably find work for them somewhere in the massive political apparatus as a non-partisan group or NGO. Or maybe they could be used as brown shirt enforcers.

It’s likely another idea he trotted out that poll tested fairly well among Democrats. Just like most of the verbiage he spews from his central organ. Sounds good but smells like flatulence. It reveals he has no conscience or shame, but I repeat myself.

Speak up, if you are a Leftocrat or theocrat ruler

First we had Ahmadinejad come to speak at Columbia University. That went over well, if you were a Leftist academic that is. They seemed to enjoy that. They hailed it as a great day for freedom of speech.

“It should never be thought that merely to listen to ideas we deplore in any way implies our endorsement of those ideas…

It is a critical premise of freedom of speech that we do not honor the dishonorable when we open the public forum to their voices. To hold otherwise would make vigorous debate impossible.”– Lee C. Bollinger

Then along came Netanyahu speaking at Congress and the Left booed & hissed about that. Pelosi turned her back to Bibi. Congress writes a letter to Tehran telling them how our system works, so the Left cried foul again and Obama’s White House called it unhelpful meddling. Some called it treasonous. What right did Congress have to do that?

Ali Khamenei writes a letter to our youth back in January that the Left made no fuss over. Two months later, Obama gives an oration to the people of Iran. I’m sure the Left has no criticism for it either. (not a Cairo Speech but they’ll take whatever Obama shovels out) Since Obama’s favorite audience is young people, we know his Tehran tribute was mainly aimed at young people in Iran.

Obama would do well to talk to the leaders in the country that rule with an iron hand. But now he opts for a conversation with young people, even though he ignored them years ago in their uprising. At this point the Iranians are trying to figure out if this is live or just a very delayed response to their earlier pleas. Maybe since Ali Khamenei took the time to write such a thoughtful, inspiring letter to our youth Obama felt inclined to reciprocate?

So we do seem to have this back and forth. But it is only ‘not helpful’ when anyone on the right speaks out. Funny how the subject of his speech was “speaking out” about the “future”. Why that seems to only apply to Liberals, I don’t know? If you are a conservative, “shut up, you have no right to speak on/to that”. If you are a diehard Leftist, your voice is always welcomed even needed. It’s called a double standard, something the left loves. (call it the Hillary or Obama standard)

With all Liberal “dialogue,” as they call it, it never matters if any good comes of it. It is speech. If it is from the Right or conservatives, “hold your horses.” It is wrong-based and wrong-headed. As Heiress in waiting, no doubt Hillary has her watchful eye on this back and forth. In fact, we know because she lampooned Republicans for sending their letter in her speech. That came spontaneously, not like the Keystone Pipeline or anything — not even a Hard Choice. That her response came while she was also trying to explain her Servergate fiasco was purely coincidental. (wink)

    Hillary: Republicans were either trying to help the Iranians or hurt President Barack Obama. (Maureen Dowd replied to Hillary with an open letter of her own.)

This freedom of speech is very tricky, even hazardous. I hope maybe Obama can issue one of his necessary Executive edicts to clarify it. That would be ever so helpful.

Letter from Tehran….with love or not

Many people probably were unaware of this attempt at a letter from Iran. The ones who did see it may not have wanted to publicize it. I have mixed feelings about that but to those who understand and know, it should be read. So I include the words here in its entirety. (as wordy as it is – a few passages highlighted for emphasis)

In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful
To the Youth in Europe and North America, (from Seyyed Ali Khamenei)
The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.
I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth.
I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West.
Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated. A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies.
The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable.
By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries. Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought?
You know well that humiliation and spreading hatred and illusionary fear of the “other” have been the common base of all those oppressive profiteers. Now, I would like you to ask yourself why the old policy of spreading “phobia” and hatred has targeted Islam and Muslims with an unprecedented intensity. Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent? What concepts and values in Islam disturb the programs of the super powers and what interests are safeguarded in the shadow of distorting the image of Islam? Hence, my first request is: Study and research the incentives behind this widespread tarnishing of the image of Islam.
My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from.
I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.
Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media?
Have you ever asked yourself how and on the basis of which values has Islam established the greatest scientific and intellectual civilization of the world and raised the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals throughout several centuries?
I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality, taking away the possibility of an impartial judgment from you. Today, the communication media have removed the geographical borders. Hence, don’t allow them to besiege you within fabricated and mental borders.
Although no one can individually fill the created gaps, each one of you can construct a bridge of thought and fairness over the gaps to illuminate yourself and your surrounding environment. While this preplanned challenge between Islam and you, the youth, is undesirable, it can raise new questions in your curious and inquiring minds. Attempts to find answers to these questions will provide you with an appropriate opportunity to discover new truths.
Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.
Seyyed Ali Khamenei
21st Jan. 2015

As I said, it is something of a sight. Yet the same guy now complains about Congress addressing a letter to him? Go figure. Note he is talking to the kids. The thing that got me is the amount of people out there pimping this letter for him. I don’t think there is any valuable information in it. Though it does offer some insight into what we are dealing with.

If he really wanted to express non-bias he could start closer to home — without having to worry about the rest of the world and its children. (i.e. indoctrinating their children)

And if he cared about youth, he would be improving lives of the youth in Iran via jobs, the economy, opportunity, and freedoms of course. The people spoke in elections on those things. But he ignores the plight of people right in his own country.

Since everything in Iran has to do with Islam, one way or another, it does not seem to be making a great promotion for Islam. Rather it is making a negative statement, all by itself, about Islam and its culture. It is not the West doing that. Surely it does not go beyond notice that their terrorism tentacles are widespread throughout the region. Its treatment of women, or its hostages, does not speak well for Islam.

Speak up and forever hold the peace

Obama said in a message to the Iranian people:

    “We have to speak up for the future we seek”

What a bunch of nonsense, which is typical of Obamaspeak. Then he usually gets praised for excellent delivery. Too bad he couldn’t hear any applause from Tehran.

Straw man alert:

“The days and weeks ahead will be critical. Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain. And there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution. My message to you—the people of Iran—is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek.”

Who are all these people who are against a “diplomatic resolution”? People are opposed to failure. They are opposed to something that doesn’t work. They are opposed to giving away the store. They are opposed to a policy of containment that won’t work But they are not opposed to a diplomatic resolution. But what diplomatic resolution would not include congress? Diplomacy? And they are not opposed to a deal. As long as it is one that works.

But of course he is talking about “diplomacy” with a theocracy and dictatorship waiting for the Mahdi or 12th Imam. An ideology whose duty is to usher in and speed that age through violent jihad and terrorism.

BTW: Can anyone point out the difference between what Russia(Putin) is doing and what Iran is doing? It is the same thing different regions. Russia has invaded Ukraine on the auspices that they were invited there to stabilize it. Iran invaded Iraq under the guise of pushing back ISIS and calming things down. Both have ulterior motives. Both insist it was invited in as a good neighbor. Each believes it is justified in its expansionist motives.

Furthermore, what do the Iranian people have to do or say about the nuclear program? Right, it’s a democratic nuclear program. Petitions, phone calls, and letters to follow.

It’s Springtime in Iran. “Peace in our time.” Watch and listen to this video.

Neville Chamberlain 1938, after Munich Conference: “I believe it is “peace for our time.””

So people wrongly oppose a diplomatic resolution?

Past is prologue with Hillary

The problem with Hillary is we don’t have to look far from her for a parallel. She wants us to think this is all about nothing. She wants us to think she was not trying to bypass the national archives.(and certainly their filing system to comply with FOIA requests.)

But just take a trip back to the Clinton years and who pops up? Good old Sandy Berger, notorious document thief. He was caught stealing documents from national archives.

Sandy Berger fined $50,000 for taking documents
Thursday, September 8, 2005 | CNN

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.

Berger must perform 100 hours of community service and pay the fine as well as $6,905 for the administrative costs of his two-year probation, a district court judge ruled.

“I deeply regret the actions that I took at the National Archives two years ago, and I accept the judgment of the court,” Berger said outside the courthouse after his sentencing.

According to the charges, Berger — between September 2 and October 2, 2003 — “knowingly removed classified documents from the National Archives and Records Administration and stored and retained such documents at places,” such as his private Washington office. – More>

With that in mind, Hillary just started out from a point of securing information on her private server. Problem solved. In the event of a problem, she has control over the records she kept there. Sandy Berger had nothing on Hillary. And his pants were probably not large enough to hold those documents.

Hillary’s fun tour preempts her listening tour

Call it a scheduling change. Hillary, well known for her listening tours, now recommends therapeutic fun for what ails you. The irony of the humor-challenged Clinton discovering the need for fun, now that’s funny! According to Hillary, we need a break.

Eureka, she’s discovered the mother load fun deficit. And she has the cure.

Hillary seems to be on a roll. Never a ‘doll‘ moment for someone trying to shake the baggage of her ‘really old‘ narrative. So she schemed up a diversion an idea ripe for today, she wants to start a fun camp. (and we thought she was already a laughing stock)

Apparently she’s given this some thought. Well, what passes for thought from Hillary.

Let the fun begin. She wants her peeps to be happy campers. And what a spokesperson for the cause, eh?

She stumbled upon a central problem with Dems: when their politics suck and they are losing ground, they are the most unhappy crowd you’ve ever seen. Now she plans on rectifying all that. The question is can she escalate it into bread and circuses?

But at least her idea has supplied lots of fodder for the right, and they are getting some laughs out of it. I doubt very much the Elizabeth Warren crowd is very amused though.

Instead of that fun deficit, how about we fix the truth deficit? Start by releasing the server and Benghazi emails that apparently, to Hillary, were not ready for prime time disclosure. Or were they too funny for prime time? Then she can do her “dirty dancing” tour.

Now maybe I can petition that Blue Toy company to come up with a “Hostess Hillary” fun doll version to fit in the Clinton collection? So now she wants to be the Comic-in-Chief.

So this is a new idea. But she did look like she was having a little too much fun on State Dept’s dole already, now we know why. Are these separate cabins going to have separate servers? Will all records be “private”? Maybe Biden and Bubba can be the welcoming committee? Rumor is when Hillary said “camp for adults” Bill Clinton’s eyes lit up.

Obama blaming Bush for ISIS

Again Obama comes out to tell us the source of ISIS. Of course, it’s George Bush — could there be any other? That’s all anyone needs to know, right? And the ruse goes on.

Mr Obama said: “Two things: one is, Isis is a direct outgrowth of al-Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion. Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.

“We’ve got a 60 country coalition. We will slowly push back Isis out of Iraq”, he continued, adding: “I’m confident that will happen.”–Independent UK

ISIS was not a dot on the horizon when Bush was president, but it is his fault. More subtly, Obama actually blames America’s actions, foreign policy, and leadership (except for him) for the formation and evil of the Islamic State. By extension, those who elected Bush.

Obama is no different than Sen Chris Murphy who suggests the US is the cause of ISIS.
Even though he claimed he wasn’t blaming us for causing ISIS.

So the guy who cannot even mention the driving force behind this evil and the Islamic State, except by the Islamic acronym ISIL, can be taken seriously to define the original cause of “ISIL”? No, he isn’t kidding and neither am I. Does that make any sense?

The “underlying problem of disaffected Sunnis” is a fundamental issue in Iraq.
Wait, is he referencing some religious “sect” difference? No, that cannot be right!

Lets review:

  • Isis rose to significance under Obama
  • Isis grew organizationally and exponentially under Obama
  • ISIS invaded Iraq, and extended to Libya and Africa under Obama
  • He referred to them as the JV team.
  • They are driven and centered on Islam which he will not acknowledge.
  • They are armed with US equipment they got after we Obama pulled us out of Iraq — in a victory lap.
  • George Bush was no where in sight when ISIS spread into Iraq.
  • ISIS spawned when we got out of Iraq not when we went to Iraq.
  • Iran enters and deploys troops in Iraq under Obama. (delayed reaction from Bush)

Now lets consider his “aim before we shoot” philosophy:

  • Obama’s defiant support for Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
  • Obama’s unilateral adventure in Libya. (and his victory lap thereafter)
  • Look at the shape of Libya, ISIS ties, condition and terrorism there now.
  • Obama’s red line in Syria, getting bailed out by Vladamir Putin.
  • Obama’s cozy relationship with Castro
  • Obama inviting Iran into Syria. (it must have been Bush’s idea.)
  • A deal with Iran at any cost.
  • A policy of containment in Iran (even though they said it wasn’t)
  • A knee jerk reaction to boycott Netanyahu’s speech.
  • Obama’s campaign staff delving into Israel’s national election
  • Obama’s A team meddling in Canada’s election
  • Obama’s official promotion of gay marriage at State Dep as a priority.
  • Obama’s amnesty outreach to South America
  • Threatening border agents not to enforce the law.

We only have to look at the World, and Middle East in particular, to see all the fruits of unintended consequences Obama’s policies have wrought, including in the US. But we also suffer intended consequences of his policies. Egypt, Ukraine and Israel know those well.

He also telegraphed a message to young people that “you should be thinking about climate change, the economy, war and peace.” Yep, they should be talking and thinking “Climate Change” and climatology, since you know everything is related to climate change — except for what Bush caused!

How can any free person on this earth take anything this man said seriously? Kids this is why we Americans should not elect radicals — or faith-based candidates — to the Oval Office. It just isn’t a good idea.

Got that? Think about melting glacier ice, not ISIS cannibalizing the Mid East and Africa. Never mind either his stuck-in-the-mud policy of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

It’s the agenda, stupid

Speaking of State Department BS and the Obama administration in general, time to revisit an older article. Not much changed so it is only more important with State issues.

Naturally, I cannot suspend my disbelief of this Federal Autocracy. But when departments ally with other departments and bureaucracy in a cohesive effort, it only gets worse. Here we have such a stellar case. It is nothing new that it involves education, databases, and the ever prying eye of the Leviathan we call the Federal Government.

Obama’s “Mother of all Databases” Includes Our Children

Speaking of databases, there’s one out there that’s more than a little disturbing. It’s but one more devious plan created by none other than Barack Hussein Obama to store personal information on our children. No wonder Maxine Waters spouted off that Obama’s database knew everything about everybody – this is one of the few times that Maxine was telling the truth.

Obama actually planned this scandal back in 2009 – why Republicans and Democrats didn’t even raise an eyebrow is a total mystery. Obama helped himself to several billion dollars of our stimulus money and threw it into a pot for Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, placing him in charge of mining our children’s personal information for Obama’s database.

Federal law put in place restrictions back in 1979 when the Department of Education was launched. The law specifically stated that it was illegal for the White House to have a Federal Education database.

As usual, the law does not apply to Obama. Obama and Duncan promised an ungodly amount of money to the States suffering from a horrific recession if they would make a deal and trust Washington to take over the education system of our children.

There’s one more minor stipulation that Obama is requesting.  He wants each State to create a database containing personal information on our kids and forward that information to none other than the Secretary of Education. Obama and old Arne have prepared the template for these databases containing hundreds of personal data requirements from religion to parent’s income.

Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood is now partnering up with our Department of Education and the State Department to create an online program (Qatar) that will connect our United States schools with classrooms abroad. As usual, they leave out some pertinent details.

 

Remember the days when people used to want to speak truth to power when it was critically important, when it appeared the power or powerful had lost their way? That must seem so 70’ish. The good old days when libs used to talk about believing in that.

Well, now Liberals are quiet as mice. Do they not realize this stuff is happening? Do they not care? I think there is a lot of the latter. Just connecting obvious dots is too much effort for some people. Maybe they would rather not know? That is a real possibility.

Even more sinister, maybe libs realize and approve of what is going on knowing it means more power for the government and less privacy and freedom for us – or more control?

Obama and his cohorts are great at talking about or blaming unintended consequences, but what about the all too intentional ones? Just like the IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious or Servergate. Surely these things are missteps, blunders, coincidences, or unintended results of an ever-burgeoning bureaucracy. My disbelief wins, again.

Foggy Bottom’s lesson in taqiyya

Taqiyya? State Dept. admits lying about meeting with Muslim Brotherhood

by Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief on February 4, 2015 | Allen B West

As you may recall, we reported last week about a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood leaders meeting at the U.S. State Department to discuss their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt. Well, of course they oppose him – he had the nerve to call them a “terrorist organization.” Silly al-Sisi!

After all, just because two days after that meeting the Muslim Brotherhood issued a statement calling for jihad and two days after THAT conducted a major terror attack in the Sinai region killing at least 25 doesn’t make them a terrorist organization. Of course not.

And that jihad statement? Fuhgeddaboudit:

“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom.”

Continue reading>

Then State went on to lie about the circumstances of the meeting by pointing a finger at University funding. Nope, that wasn’t the case. So it makes you wonder how much they have to lie about something they don’t believe is a problem?

As the Free Beacon writes, “The State Department admitted on Monday that it misled reporters about a recent delegation of Muslim Brotherhood leaders and allies who were hosted for a meeting with officials at Foggy Bottom.”

This just reminds me of the story Alice in Wonderland or someone falling through the looking glass. To paraphrase former Secretary Hillary, their story “requires the willing suspension of disbelief.” Of course they cannot be honest with us, it’s the first rule of their convoluted agenda. But if we try to expect from them what they are clearly not going to provide, then who is the real dupe?

New: Hillary doll hits market

(Satire – spoooooof)
I heard a toy company has a new promotional doll planned of Hillary Clinton. It was something like this:

Gearing up for summer release

Hillary — a doll whose time has come.

She walks, talks, cries and lies, and raises money too. It comes preloaded with 25 scandals, more than enough to get started. Think of all the fun kids — lets be honest girls — can have acting out some of the famous scandals they’ve only seen on tabloid magazines at the grocery store.

Cultivate your child’s imagination on rainy day play dates. White House and accessories sold separately. They’ll want to hold on to this one for years and never grow tired of it, because there’s always something new! Kids can create their own scandals too. It’s scalable and you can add as many interactive staff and advisers as you like. Develop their own story lines just like in real life.

Set comes with the original White Water one all the way to Benghazi – many accessories available now and more on the way. And remember Hillary is always busy, which means there will be plenty more to add later. Kids can have even more fun guessing what scandal Hillary will create next. Parents might be tempted to play along for hours of wholesome family fun. Comes with lots of “Democrat voter” stickers.

There will be a limited amount of dolls in the 1st edition, so get them while you can. We will try to keep up with demand but cannot guarantee it as early shipments are selling fast.

There will also be a Bubba doll roll out, so you can mix and match your choices of advisers and interns with Bubba Clinton to find which are the best fit, or just try them all one by one. The hours of enjoyment you will have from him alone will be priceless for any aspiring child. All Bubba pieces sold separately, so collect them all…if you can! Sure to be worth more over time. Sit back and just watch the story lines develop, and their value increase. Your child’s closet will not be big enough to hold it all.

Don’t be the last on your block to order yours, they’ll be the talk at school. Made right here in USA by Blue Toy Inc. (must be at least 18 to purchase — wink, we won’t tell)

Do the Dowd shuffle, it’s all the rage

About once a year the vitriolic Maureen Dowd does a particularly poignant, hilarious piece. In this case she rose to the challenge by roasting Hillary and then serving her just dessert for that arrogant press conference display.

Read the column and I promise you won’t be disappointed with the irony of the high-brow wit of Dowd taking Hillary down to size. If Hill thought the spandex was uncomfortable for yoga, she’s about to be super spandex-ed. I couldn’t resist an appropriate introduction.

It’s eye candy. So, this time it’s even richer than that pot candy bar hiatus in Colorado. And she doesn’t have to suffer any withdrawals…. well, not yet anyway.

An Open Letter to hdr22@clintonemail.com

WASHINGTON — SINCE open letters to secretive and duplicitous regimes are in fashion, we would like to post an Open Letter to the Leaders of the Clinton Republic of Chappaqua:

It has come to our attention while observing your machinations during your attempted restoration that you may not fully understand our constitutional system. Thus, we are writing to bring to your attention two features of our democracy: The importance of preserving historical records and the ill-advised gluttony of an American feminist icon wallowing in regressive Middle Eastern states’ payola.

You should seriously consider these characteristics of our nation as the Campaign-That-Must-Not-Be-Named progresses.

If you, Hillary Rodham Clinton, are willing to cite your mother’s funeral to get sympathy for ill-advisedly deleting 30,000 emails, it just makes us want to sigh: O.K., just take it. If you want it that bad, go ahead and be president and leave us in peace.

I challenge any one of the other liberal nom de plumes out there to skewer Hillary in similar fashion. (don’t hold your breath) They won’t be lining up at the dunk tank to take a shot at Hillary. It just ain’t going to happen, which in itself should tell us a whole lot.

In other words, Maureen is correct that Dems will swallow just about anything under the guise of a woman candidate for president. And Hillary’s assumption is right that liberal women will “compartmentalize” the abuse and hypocrisy just to put her name up in golden lights as Hillary’s time — #ReadyForHillary .

It only reveals the insane hypocrisy of the Left. Hillary actually comes with the baggage of scandals, already broken in, some already under investigation. Hillary, this is your life.

Persia 2.0: the sequel

When Ralph Peters talks, people ought to listen. Or as the old Soviet defectors used to say, get the bananas out of their ears. He framed the coming Iran as years in the making.

The Iranian dream of a reborn Persian Empire

By Ralph Peters — February 1, 2015 | NY Post

The sight of vast graves opening and the undead clawing out should unnerve us all. But we haven’t even noticed. As more blood flows than any horror film offers, it’s brought the hope of eternal life to bygone empires we all thought dead and buried — and good riddance.

Blinded by the flash of headline events, we fail to see the strategic arcs of our era: the agonized collapse of Europe’s empires — climaxing in the Soviet Union’s demise — and now, amid the chaos and fanaticism, the belief on the part of once-mighty powers that they can rebuild fallen empires.

History is vengeful toward the ignorant. And we’re historically illiterate.

A Turkish attempt to establish a neo-Ottoman Empire failed (none of their neighbors wanted the Turks back), but three other imperia have gotten at least one foot out of the grave: the Persian Empire, the Arab Caliphate and the Russian Empire.

Not one means us well.

I guess the jingle of “The Iranians are coming” doesn’t have a good ring to it. We are sure headed in the direction of Tehran, ‘as Tehran goes…’ Our illustrious jive-masters in Washington think no one will notice. The old adage is: change, if done correctly, can hardly be noticed. Well, many of us notice but what is anyone doing about it?

Bibi gives a speech mentioning the hijacked territory under Iranian control but the indoctrinated masses said his “political speech” struck a sour chord. While Iran punctuates every sentence with theocratic politics all the time. What do we do? Make concessions. It seems some of that Persian pride has infiltrated and infected Washington. Is it terminal?

As Peters said, “History is vengeful toward the ignorant. And we’re historically illiterate.”
