Are You On It Yet?


“Since Obama became President, 1.5 MILLION people have been added to secret “suspected terrorist” list”

From Doug Ross:

It would seem that the era of hope and change ended about the time that Barack Obama took his oath of office.

The scale of the [federal government's] secret [terror] blacklist was revealed in a civil suit over the Terrorist Screening Database, and it shocked the judge.

99 percent of the names submitted to the list are accepted; the court called this “wildly loose.” The database has grown from 227,932 names in 2009 to its current stratospheric heights. There is no official, public procedure for having your name removed from the list. The US government is seeking to end the trial by invoking state secrecy.”

The Associated Press has the raw stats:

In fiscal 2009, which ended Sept. 30, 2009, 227,932 names were nominated to the database. In fiscal 2010, which includes the months after the attempted Christmas bombing, nominations rose to 250,847. In fiscal 2012, they increased to 336,712, and in fiscal 2013 — the most recent year provided — nominations jumped to 468,749.””


Someone Else Questions Obama’s Sanity

And well they should. His actions are frequently inappropriate. The other day he made a speech in which he told Russian leader Putin what he should do and how he should deal with the shoot-down of flight 17 in Ukraine. He didn’t follow up with, “Or else”. He just jacked his jaws inappropriately – and then went on to plan his next vacation.

“Is Obama’s constant, inappropriate laughter a sign that he is suffering from a mental disorder?

One of the classic signs of serious mental illness is “inappropriate affect.” In this context, “affect” is the emotional face we present to the world. To the extent that a narcissist’s only emotional fixed point is his own need, most of a narcissists affects are actually faked, but that doesn’t mean they’re inappropriate.

The narcissist knows that it would harm his best interests if he were to giggle uncontrollably at a funeral or pick a fist fight with a patient in hospice. Normal people wouldn’t even think of doing such things (outside of the comedy universe), but a narcissist might want to do both, only to stop himself for fear of breaking cover.

Sometimes, though, narcissists, and other sick people, are so disconnected from reality — including their reality of their own best interests in a given situation — that they can no longer stop themselves from presenting an entirely wrong emotional face to the public. That completely disconnected emotional presentation goes by the shorthand title of “inappropriate affect.””

Consider the meeting President Obama had with Texas Governor Perry. The photos taken during that meeting are chilling:



Look at Obama and then look at Perry. Perry understands just how inappropriate the President’s laughter is.

Bookworm has a detailed discussion of this phenomenon. He has done some investigation and found that there are detailed reasons why people laugh inappropriately. They are:

Drug intoxication
Substance abuse
Temporal lobe injury
Alcohol intoxication

And he cites his sources.

It is interesting how media are beginning to question this President’s actions. He has said and done inappropriate things all through his time in office but lately it has become much more obvious.



Why Is The Congress Willing To Cede Its Powers To The President?

Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley warns about the rise of the ‘Uber Presidency’. In this video he explains that Congress is willingly handing its authority over to the President – and that is wrong. He says,

Our system is changing and this body is the one branch that must act if we’re to reverse those changes. We’re seeing the emergence of a different model of government, a model long ago rejected by the framers. A dominant presidency has occurred with very little Congressional opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevant. Now many members are contesting the right of this institution to even be heard in federal court. This Body Is Moving From Self-Loathing To Self-Destruction”

Why would they do that? Why would Congress not merely stand by while the Executive strips their powers, but embrace the act? They are making themselves irrelevant.

Turley says part of it is because we have grown impatient with the checks and balances and are falling victim to a person who says, “I can get it done”. He warns that that is dangerous and not at all what our founders sought. In fact they warned against it.

There is a transcript of Turley’s remarks at Real Clear Politics.

Megyn Kelly asks him some excellent and pointed questions in this next video. His answers are powerful. At the end Kelly recommends Turley’s blog. Here is a link to it. He deals with a wide range of legal subjects. I have bookmarked it.

“Mark Levin: Obama Is Sick; “There’s Something Out Of Kilter, There’s A Screw Loose””

Sickness. That’s a different take but he’s right. There is something wrong with a person who is bent on the destruction of the greatest nation in the entire history of our world.

Others have spoken of Obama’s sickness. He has been called a narcissist and a sociopath. Medical Doctors who are trained in mental disorders have said these things.

It is beyond understanding how the leader of the free world ignores attack after attack on our people and the people of our allies.

You know what ladies and gentlemen? Let me be the first to say it and I’ll take whatever slings and arrows I get. This is a very sick man this Obama. There’s something out of kilter, there’s a screw loose. Something’s not right if you’re president of the United States and something like this happens. Our ally Israel is at war. Where an airliner shot out of the sky. And let me say one other thing as I get to one after another here. I am sick and tired of the propagandists for Putin, who is a fascist. I am sick and tired for the apologists who [say], ‘Oh well, has a right to Crimea. Oh, Georgia. Oh, Ukraine. Whatever.’ Bullcrap.”


It Seems Even ‘Tingles’ Has Lost The Tingle

Everyone, even Chris Matthews, objects to President Obama’s casual, callous reference to the shoot down of Malaysian flight 17 over Ukraine. The reference was short and unfeeling. Then he went back to fundraising and schmoozing.


Matthews became nostalgic for an earlier time and an earlier President; a President who said what Americans were feeling. That was a President who made us all proud to be Americans.

Matthews is losing the tingle.

“Terrible Tragedy” vs. Murder

Terrible Tragedy

The Russian military shot down a Boeing 777 aircraft filled with 280 passengers and 18 crewmembers, of which it is believed 23 are American citizens. The missile that killed these people was intentionally fired from a Russian “buk” class missile system from within the borders of the Russia by Russian military personnel. This happened three days after the Russians did the same to a Ukrainian cargo aircraft and the same day as a Ukrainian ground attack aircraft.

After talking with Russian President Vladmir Putin, who engineered the strife in the Ukraine to benefit himself and his nation, President Barack Obama said, “It looks like it might be a terrible tragedy.”

A “terrible tragedy?”

A fucking “terrible tragedy”?

No, President Obama, a “terrible tragedy” is a goddamn house fire that gets put out and some wedding photos get singed. This is the fucking MURDER of more than 300 people, of which nearly two dozen you supposedly represent!

One of the many problems that plagued President Jimmy Carter was that he was unable to tell the difference between a country led by evil men bent on world domination (the Soviet Union) and a nation of free people who desired peace, commerce, and prosperity (the United States). Apparently our current President is not only just as useless as Carter, he’s simply incapable of speaking the truth when it comes to our enemies even when it’s obvious to everyone around him.

And, oh yeah, President Retard, the American Public called the 1980s and said we want to borrow their defense plans. And their President, on account of the fact that the one we have sucks.

Politico: “Who’s talking about impeachment? Barack Obama”

obama pensive

President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of his own.

“You’re not going to get me impeached, are you?” Obama said, according to people in a private White House meeting late last month. “Because there’s lots of other things I want to do besides immigration.”

The president was joking … mostly. Obama said he was frustrated that Republicans wouldn’t talk about passing an immigration bill but were openly toying with an impeachment vote over the notion that he would use his executive powers to circumvent Congress.”

Politico: Eric Holder, The Survivor

Politico calls Holder a ‘Survivor’ and asks why he’s still got the job of Attorney General.

I suspect Holder is still there because he is the ‘Enforcer’ who may not break legs but is willing to do about anything else to protect President Obama.

Why the hell is Eric Holder still around? That’s a question many of Barack Obama’s political advisers have asked at various points throughout Holder’s tumultuous five years at the helm of the Justice Department.

For most of Obama’s presidency, in fact, if there’s been controversy, Holder was likely to be in the middle of it, from the failed efforts to close Guantánamo Bay and to prosecute alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a Manhattan court to his inability to send Wall Street executives involved in the mortgage meltdown to jail.

He’s a race man,” says Charles Ogletree, a longtime friend of Holder’s who taught and mentored Obama and his wife, Michelle, as Harvard Law School students in the 1980s. “He’s gone farther and deeper into some issues of race than the White House would like, but I know he has the president’s well-wishes. It’s clear [Obama and Holder] believe in the same things.”

Holder himself recently told another African-American friend that he feels part of his job is “to talk about things the president can’t talk about as easily.” Asked to describe Holder’s role, one of his former top aides described him as “Obama’s heat shield.”

“Rep. Bridenstine finally gets tour of Ft Sill and says what he learned is horrific”

“We were told we couldn’t take pictures or ask questions of staff or anyone else. We told them we would handle their rules the same way the President handles our laws – We would treat them as suggestions.”

He said the children that actually make it across the border are the lucky ones. There are some that start the journey but never make it.

Bridenstine pointed out that the illegals within the US are in many cases the ones paying coyotes to bring these unaccompanied minors across the border. But in some cases where the coyotes aren’t paid or the wrong one is paid, these children can be subject to forced labor, prostitution, or even sold into the slave trade.

He also mentioned mass graves in northern Mexico where some have been killed.

Bridenstine said he learned that many of these minors are being released in the US to other illegals and not to American citizens.”

“Bergdahl Is Set to Resume Life on Active Duty”

Another tale from Bizzaro World.


WASHINGTON — Six weeks after being released from five years in Taliban captivity, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to return to life as a regular Army soldier as early as Monday, Defense Department officials said late Sunday.

Sergeant Bergdahl has finished undergoing therapy and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio, and will assume a job at the Army North headquarters at the same base, Fort Sam Houston, the officials said.

He is also expected to meet with Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl, the officer who is investigating the circumstances of Sergeant Bergdahl’s disappearance from his outpost in Afghanistan in 2009.

Sergeant Bergdahl’s transfer from the therapy phase to a regular soldier’s job is part of his reintegration into Army life, officials said. He will live in barracks and have two other soldiers help him readjust.”

What MOS is helping Bergdahl to adjust?

“Holder: ‘Homegrown Violent Extremists … Keep Me Up at Night’”

I suspect he means you and me. He lumps all gun owners together as ‘Violent Extremists’. They start off talking about the Boston bombers and segue into the two dolts who killed two policemen in Las Vegas.

Here We Are Going To Put Two Stories Together To Create A More Complete Image

First there is the story of central American gang members entering the United States as unaccompanied minors:

Illegal Unaccompanied Minors Being Held For Placement in U.S. Admit to Engaging in Torture and Murder

CA gang member

“We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old,” an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. “They are being held for placement in the U.S.”

By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.”

The story comes from Townhall

Next there is this story from Breitbart.


MCALLEN, Texas—Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.
“This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza.”

If the worst we had to worry about was central American gang members it would be one thing but no one knows who these ‘children’ are. They have to take their word for everything.

Spokesman Garza continued, “We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.”

Further into the Breitbart piece we find that the United Nations has noticed that people from other places – like Africa – are among the refugees.

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime’s “Transnational Organized Crime in Central America and the Caribbean” revealed that individuals from the terror-prone Somalia were traveling to Central America in efforts to illegally enter the United States. The report states:

“Central Americans are not the only ones being smuggled through Mexico to the United States. Irregular migrants from the Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Somalia, and Ethiopia), as well as South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, India), China, and other African and Asian states are being smuggled through Central America.”

So the TSA, being part of Homeland Security, is allowing these unknown people to travel on scheduled airlines. This is neither how you make transportation more secure nor is it how one makes the homeland more secure. The passengers and crew members on these aircraft are in great danger.

Somebody In Norfolk, Nebraska Disrespected Obama

Now Eric Holder and the Department of Justice are investigating.

They put an outhouse on the back of a truck and labeled it, ‘Obama’s Presidential Library’. Then they drove it down the street during the town’s July 4th parade.

obama library float

Holder apparently thinks this foolishness is more important than the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious gun running, and enforcement of immigration laws. From

Justice Department enters fray over 4th of July parade float in Norfolk

The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade.
The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Independent Order of Odd Fellows.”

This act is intimidation, pure and simple. Holder is telling everyone, “No one will speak out against Dear Leader.”


Palin: “The case for Obama’s impeachment”


Sarah Palin seems to be the only person in the United States that is not afraid af being called a racist. She has observed the lawless actions of the nation’s first black President and, unlike other Republicans, she is willing to call it what it is – lawless. Her remedy for this President’s refusal to insist on the enforcement of ;laws he disagrees with, he usurpation of the authorities of the Congress, and his efforts to destroy the authority of the courts is the same as it would be for a white President: Impeachment. She make her case well in an opinion piece for Fox Here are a few excerpts:

The next time you hear politicians denounce Barack Obama as a lawless, imperial president with a scandal-riddled administration, ask them what they’re going to do about it. Their gnashing of teeth over Obama’s self-granted omnipotence is repetitive.

Let’s agree with our ninth president, William Henry Harrison, who said there is nothing more corrupting, nothing more destructive than the exercise of unlimited power. We understand the problem. The only way for politicians to fix it is with a little less talk and a lot more action.

The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It’s impeachment.

To be clear, “high crimes and misdemeanors” are not necessarily ordinary criminal offenses. Our Framers used the term to signify a dereliction of duty, and the first duty of the president is to enforce our laws and preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution.

Alexander Hamilton described impeachable offenses as those “which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.” He explained that they are “political” offenses “as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

That’s a great question. “What are you going to do about it?” Your Congressman and mine are running for reelection this year. A third of our Senators are as well. You will have an opportunity to visit with them on the campaign trail if you decide to attend their events. “What are you going to do about Obama’s lawlessness” is a legitimate and powerful question. It should be asked of every candidate.

There is no question that President Obama and his staff have been picking and choosing which laws they will enforce. Since he has placed Eric Holder in position as head of the Department of Justice we have seen unlawful actions by them. He refuses to investigate Fast and Furious, Lois Lerner and the IRS’ targeting of Conservative groups, the intimidation of voters at a polling place by members of the New Black Panthers, and other crimes.

There are plenty of examples of other Departments doing illegal things.

This needs to stop. What are you going to do about it?


Our Brilliant Administration Stumbles Again

From the Times of Israel:

White House coordinator for the Middle East Philip Gordon speaks at the Israel Conference on Peace in Tel Aviv, July 8, 2014 (photo credit: screen shot

Lecturing us on security, as the rockets fly in

By: David Horovitz

The White House’s Middle East coordinator gave a risible speech Tuesday, asserting that the US knows how to keep Israel safe, at a conference that was halted by a Hamas attack

Sometimes you don’t know whether to laugh or cry. On Tuesday, at a conference organized by the Haaretz daily in Tel Aviv, the White House’s Coordinator for the Middle East, Philip Gordon, delivered an address that dealt at some length with the US effort to both broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal and draw up the security arrangements that would leave Israel feeling safe enough to carry out significant territorial withdrawals.

Gordon made lots of valid points about Israel’s essential interests requiring an accommodation with the Palestinians. But parts of his oration read as though Gordon is a recent arrival from Planet Zog who has mistaken the Middle East for Finland.

You can read the entire address here, but the first passage I want to highlight is one of the questions Gordon puts to us Israelis — as a representative of “Israel’s closest friend” — when he wonders, “how will [Israel] have peace if it is unwilling to delineate a border, end the occupation and allow for Palestinian sovereignty, security, and dignity?” The answer, of course, is that we won’t. Unfortunately, as things stand, however, we won’t have peace, either, if we do “end the occupation and allow for Palestinian sovereignty, security, and dignity.”

So those are the White House’s preconditions. Israel must, “…delineate a border, end the occupation and allow for Palestinian sovereignty, security, and dignity”. And then we promise to keep Israel safe while our ‘Middle East Coordinator’ hides behind an iron wall to protect himself from the explosions of Hamas rockets.

Gordon delivered his speech after the Iron Dome missile defense system kept him safe from Hamas’s rockets, launched by an organization which his administration has implicitly legitimized as an acceptable backer of the Palestinian government. The US, to its great credit, has funded Iron Dome’s development. But the security innovations behind its life-savingly effective performance are Israeli.

There’s a lesson in there which Gordon and the rest of the Obama administration should have long since internalized. It’s that our closest friend should be just a little less arrogant in telling us what we need and don’t need to do in order to keep ourselves safe.”

The Obama administration is trying to have it both ways. They tell the Israelis that we are their ‘Closest ally’. They tell the Palestinians the same thing. But since they are at war we cannot be ‘closest’ to both. The Israelis, led by pragmatist Netanyahu, understand that their future is in their own hands. They will get no physical assistance from America. Our President doesn’t like Jews.


LTC Allen West Dares Call It Treason


“More Obama-Muslim Brotherhood cooperation revealed: Smells like treason to me.”

I know Speaker of the House, John Boehner, is pursuing a lawsuit against President Obama for constitutional power usurpation. I think we need to be looking under another rock — the one of aiding and abetting the enemy that leads to high crimes and misdemeanors. The Obama administration’s collusion with the Muslim Brotherhood is just that — and could easily be seen as treasonous.”

Somebody Wants Violence To Start

This morning there are at least two headlines that are important. They deal with the flood of illegal immigrants across the nation’s southern borders. First there is this headline from the Brownsville, Texas Herald. Matt Drudge linked to it.

Militia group heading to Texas border

A group that identifies itself as a coalition of “Patriots” has put out a call for people to go to the Texas-Mexico border and help with a citizen militia operation called “Secure our Border – Laredo.”

A spokeswoman for the group, Denice Freeman, said the operation is a call for civilian militia members — both armed and unarmed — to voluntarily guard private property in the Laredo area and other Texas locations where owners feel threatened by “drug cartels and from gangs, particularly the MS-13 gangs,” a Salvadoran-based gang that is considered among the most dangerous in this country by law enforcement.

Freeman said she expected militia members to become visible in border communities, including the Rio Grande Valley, in the coming weeks but she wanted to stress that the operation’s commander — Chris Davis — is warning members against using any violent means.”

This response is probably understandable from a couple of angles. First, Americans can see this flood of mostly mothers and children for what it is, an effort to overload our systems of health care and law enforcement and they want it stopped. The federal government is not trying to stop it. Instead they are assisting the illegals.

Second, the militia members succeeded in forcing the feds to back down at the Bundy ranch standoff in Nevada. Perhaps they can do the same here.

bundy rifleman

The other headline is this from Breitbart:


Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California–a town that neighbors Murrieta–told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that “it’s going to get ugly.”

Oliver said, “The feds are pissed that they haven’t been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday–they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back.”

John Henry, a Murrieta resident since 1991, was told the same thing by local officers.

“We’re being told that federal Marshals or ICE will be here in the next few days and that they are bringing riot gear,” Henry said. “They’re apparently going to be blocking off the street with concrete blockades so that no vehicles can get through. The River County Sheriff’s Department showed up last night and brought a huge watch tower that shoots up into the air 35 feet.”

Yes it seems that someone wants the violence to start. There are other similar stories. For instance, over the weekend it was reported that Texas Governor Rick Perry is sending Texas Rangers to the US/Mexico Border.

These actions are the natural reactions of traditional Americans to unlawful moves. There will be confrontations and they will cause reactions as we saw at the Bundy ranch. The question now is whether the federal troops are prepared to take the next step into violence.

The President has shown repeatedly that he does not have the stomach for warfare overseas. Instead he dithers until the problem resolves itself. Will he show the same reluctance here on American soil?

We shall see.


“Obama Will Be Remembered As Radical Islam’s Enabler”

That headline should read, “Obama Will Be Remembered As Islam’s Enabler”.


Barack Obama welcomes radical Islamists – the Muslim Brotherhood, among others – just as he has welcomed invaders on our southern border. While the rest of the world blacklists the Brotherhood, he invites them into his cabinet. As ISIS declares domination over the Middle East, Obama remains mostly silent and deliberately ineffective. We know it’s deliberate because he is very effective when he wants to be like when he is pushing his socialist domestic agenda.”

He has pulled our troops out of Iraq but left powerful weapons in the hands of ISIS. The linked article tells us that ISIS is now called simply IS, which stands for Islamic State. Why? Because they have much bigger plans that just Iraq and Syria – which is what the second IS stood for. Some have referred to them as ISIL for Islamic State In Iraq and the Levant. Regardless, they have plans for a much bigger Caliphate. This map illustrates their five-year plan:

ISIS map of the world via Pamela Geller and dcclothesline. They recently stated that they will take back Spain soon. They plan to consume all of these countries mapped out here within the next five years.

ISIS map of the world via Pamela Geller and dcclothesline. They recently stated that they will take back Spain soon. They plan to consume all of these countries mapped out here within the next five years.

That is a pretty ambitious plan but with the help – or non-interference – of the United States it could be possible. Make no mistake. There is nothing radical about this plan. Muslims are directed to do this.

obama muslim

The pillar of Obama’s counterterrorism efforts is Muslim outreach. Immediately after the Boston bombings, representatives from the departments of Justice and Homeland Security turned to Muslim communities, not about the unfolding investigation, but to offer assistance in case they suffered backlash or threats.

Read more about these men on this link.

DHS is a social work style agency. Mr. Obama has a “feel-good” approach to law enforcement.

He is either extremely naive or he’s a willing enabler of radical Islam.”

Is it possible for IS to conquer the areas in the map above?


Europe has not seen a ruthless conquerer for many centuries. The Mongols invaded that area and killed everyone they came into contact with. Not even Hitler did that. But you have seen the images of ISIS killing masses of conquered soldiers and police. They are willing to slaughter millions and leave them as examples to terrorize the rest of the people in the world.

Keyboard Revolutionary: “So At What Point Do We Actually Stand Up To The Gun Nuts?”


Susie Madrak is trying to incite the leadership in the federal government to take on and kill ‘Gun Nuts’. She bemoans the fact that a group of armed Americans gathered at the Bundy ranch and the feds backed down. Of course like all armchair revolutionaries she wants to send in armed agents to do this. She doesn’t want to go there herself.

That is a difference between the average American and the whiny, petulant, demanding children who currently occupy the White House. There are other differences as well. What little Susie has failed to notice is that what she is complaining about represents every policy of the Obama administration. When a situation announces itself they waffle, delay, point fingers, and make a gesture. They do not act decisively.

They are the people you elected, Susie. You support their incompetence. It’s time you realize what you have wrought. But you won’t because you are just like them. You like to stamp your feet and have hissy fits… while sitting at your keyboard drinking latte.

Rick Perlstein writes about how Democrats completely surrendered our political will to control guns when the Obama administration backed away from the Bundy ranch. And I have to admit, he makes a good point. I assumed the feds would be back later — as in, a few weeks. How long has it been now? By the time anything actually happens, will it have any real deterrent effect?

But Perlstein doesn’t mention the big honkin’ elephant in the room: Namely, at what point does the federal government literally go to war with its own citizens? Because we’re not talking about bank robbers here, we’re talking about (mostly) non-criminal cranks — scofflaws and political malcontents. So what line has to be crossed in the good old U.S. of A. before we start mowing them down to make our point? Because you can’t talk about the Bundy ranch without talking about Ruby Ridge, and Waco.

So here’s the political corner into which we’ve painted ourselves.

Do we have the ATF and BLM agents roll up in armored tanks? Do we use drone strikes? I can see the administration’s reluctance to have that confrontation — after all, it’s not as if gun control advocates were flooding the White House switchboard, screaming to ‘take them out!’ And then we do have the militia types all over the country, just waiting for an excuse to start their own local uprising. These assholes want a civil war so bad, they can taste it.”

Obama Not Getting Benghazi Arrest Bounce

Benghazi suspect arrest

While looking around the blogosphere and the mainstream media today, I see that the capture of the Benghazi attack suspect has pretty much been a dud for Obama. Instead of occupying a headline position and pushing Obama’s horrible foreign policy failures in the Middle East out of the limelight, the story is being relegated to the digital back page. After the media’s tongue bath for the President following the killing of Bin Laden, I expected there to be more of a celebration and a pronouncement that Obama has “done something”.

Not that the news media is completely ignoring the story, but they are definitely not celebrating with the White House. On the Huffington Post, there was a small story about Harry Reid calling Republicans names for questioning the arrest’s timing. MSNBC had the story as number eight out of ten, while number three was Chuck Todd’s report that the public is saying Obama’s presidency is over. CNN’s James Rosen interviewed State Dept. hashtag whore Jen Psaki and pointedly asked her why it took 21 months to arrest someone who was living more openly than Tom Cruise on a publicity tour (he was less than enthusiastic about her pathetic response).

There are a couple of possible reasons for why the story is getting effectively shelved. The first is that while the arrest is interesting, it’s in regard to a story that the mainstream media has been entirely reluctant to investigate. To their minds, its old news. Worse, the White House’s Benghazi story has changed and then collapsed and the media’s complicity in pushing it is embarrassing to them.

The other possibility is that even the editors and writers in the MSM see the arrest for exactly what it is: A brazenly timed attempt to boost a flailing President’s popularity and push his historic failures off the main page. Even the most zealous of Obama boosters in the news media know when they are being manipulated and they sometimes don’t like it. The timing of the arrest in the face of the well-known fact that it could have, and should have, happened a helluva lot earlier is just too much for them to push with a straight face, so they’re relegating the story to the ash heap of history.

For whatever reason, the story doesn’t have any legs and Obama won’t be running with it.


Obama Fail: Why Are the Saudis Funding ISIS?


Those who say that Obama isn’t to blame for Iraq have missed an important point: ISIS is being funded by wealthy Sunni Muslims, primarily in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar. While this funding has been going on a long time the amount of money and material being supplied to the ISIS and others has increased considerably since the Arab Spring.

Why the increase?

Obama cheesed off our former allies by dumping Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and making kissy-face with the Muslim Brotherhood. Also, Obama’s half-hearted, half-assed stance toward Iran has left the Saudis and the Kuwaitis feeling vulnerable to Iranian pressure. Finally, when the Obama administration did nothing about the Syrian civil war, they stepped in. They have realized that Obama’s patented “Lead From Behind” style of isolationism offers them very little of value from the United States and they feel free to pursue their own goals.

“The US has underwritten the regional security order for the past 70 years and it sees now as a good time to disengage,” one senior figure told the Guardian recently. “We will have to do it all ourselves.”

And they are doing it all themselves. They are funding a friendly bunch of psychopaths who are hellbent on creating a Sunni-dominated Islamic caliphate, and to hell with the United States.

And what can the United States do to protect the rapidly failing peace and limit ISIS? In the past, the Saudis valued our partnership and acquiesced to American pleas. Now, with no relationship and no leverage thanks to Obama’s Smart Power diplomacy, we’re discovering what a world without Pax Americana looks like, and it’s damn ugly.
