Who’d A Thunk It?

NBC reporter says US allies are worried that the Obama administration is leaking their classified information to Iran. They no longer trust the United States.

Duh!

President Obama Has leaked classified documents. He is determined to see that Iran gets a nuclear weapon and he wants the state of Israel destroyed.

Who can say why he’s doing this? I’d guess it’s because of several things. He has allied himself with Islam as he said he would in his book. His chief advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was born in Iran, and Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter is married to an Iranian.

But mostly, Obama just wants the United States to be defeated.

“Garcia puts Emanuel on his heels in second mayoral debate”

Those of us who don’t choose to live in or near Chicago may not have heard how badly current Mayor Rahm Emanuel is getting trounced by Jesus.

Emanuel during his ballet days

Emanuel during his ballet days

This is from the Chicago Sun Times:

Mayoral challenger Jesus “Chuy” Garcia came out smoking Thursday, putting Mayor Rahm Emanuel on his heels in their second debate for presiding over a government by fiat and press release that is “out of touch” with the priorities of everyday Chicagoans.

From the red-light cameras he has vowed to eliminate to the appointed school board “riddled with conflicts of interest” that he has vowed to replace with an elected school board, Garcia portrayed himself as a champion of the neighborhoods with his finger on the pulse of everyday Chicagoans.”

They are both Progressive Democrats so if Garcia wins not much will change. Chicago will still be corrupt and broke. Both candidates would make it worse.

The only thing that could make things worse for Emanuel is if President Obama decided to campaign for him.

This Is Important

It sounds like All of our Senators want a say in any deal the Obama administration strikes with the Mullahs in Iran. That is a good thing. Let’s see what they do with it.

“Deal on Kirk’s Iran Amendment Leads to Unanimous Vote”

Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill

Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill

As evening approached in the Senate’s budget vote-a-rama, lawmakers found some common ground on Iran. A 100-0 vote followed.

Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill., and Banking Committee ranking Democrat Sherrod Brown of Ohio ultimately teamed up on an amendment designed to make it easier to punish the Iranian regime with revived and new sanctions in the event the president can’t certify Iran is complying with any agreement.

Kirk called the amendment “the key Iran vote of this session of Congress.”

Ted Cruz Teaches Us How To Deal With The Left

Screen-Shot-2015-03-26-at-3.55.27-PM-550x261

The Texas Tribune Has a one-on-one interview with Senator Cruz here.

On the global warming alarmists, anyone who actually points to the evidence that disproves their apocalyptical claims, they don’t engage in reasoned debate. What do they do? They scream, ‘You’re a denier.’ They brand you a heretic. Today, the global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers. It used to be [that] it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.”

Mrs22 Is Right

All there is on the news is the crash of the German airliner. Far more important than that, and getting no coverage is the nuclear deal with Iran.

We are hearing literally nothing about it except how unhappy President Obama is with Prime Minister Netanyahu for wanting to stop Iran from getting a bomb.

Rhymes With Barf

Marie Harf, Spokesgirl for the Department of State, calls soldiers liars. She says, “Don’t believe the troops who worked with Bergdahl when he deserted.

Because of this there are a lot of people calling for her firing. That would be a start but remember: She was told to say this. The firings should go a lot deeper.

“Clinton hit with racketeering lawsuit over emails”

Hmmmm… This is serious stuff for someone who wants to be President.

This Clinton

This Clinton

The conservative group Freedom Watch has filed a racketeering lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that accuses her of failing to produce documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The civil suit, filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, argues that Clinton used her private emails to sell access to other officials in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation.”

Racketeering. She learned well from Saul Alinsky. He was friends with mobster Frank Nitti.

The civil suit alleges the Clintons “systematically and continuously … conducted a corrupt enterprise” over more than 10 years, allegedly in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) Act, which deals with abuse and misuse of organizations or businesses.

In a statement, Klayman cast his lawsuit as “the first and only hard-hitting case to address the growing email scandal.”

It Gets Funnier Every Day – Pathetic

Iran is negotiating but doesn’t want anything written down.

“In Nuclear Talks, Iran Seeks to Avoid Specifics”

John Kerry calls his bookie

John Kerry calls his bookie

PARIS — If an agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear capability is reached by deadline in the next seven days, one thing may be missing: an actual written accord, signed by the Iranians.

Over the past few weeks, Iran has increasingly resisted any kind of formal “framework” agreement at this stage in the negotiations, preferring a more general statement of “understanding” followed by a final accord in June, according to Western diplomats involved in the talks.

Should that position hold — one of the many unknowns of the coming days — the United States and its five negotiating partners may find themselves in the uncomfortable position of describing the accord as they understand it while the Iranians go home to offer their own version.”

“Official: White House was part of bid to oust Netanyahu”

Petty, childish, and petulant, that’s our ‘President’. What’s worse is it didn’t work. That must be particularly galling to our nancy boy.

“Senior Jerusalem source says administration wanted ‘revenge’ over Congress speech; declares there’ll be no Palestinian state ‘in our generation’”

000_Hkg10117925-e1415862334562-635x357 The White House was directly involved in an attempt to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last week’s general election, during a nadir in ties between the Israeli leader and US President Barack Obama, a senior Jerusalem official said Tuesday

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Times of Israel that “it’s no secret” that the Obama administration had attempted to influence the outcome of the election, having been partially motivated by a desire for revenge over Netanyahu’s polarizing speech before Congress earlier this month, which sought to undermine the president’s key foreign policy initiative – a nuclear deal with Iran.

Ted Cruz Is Saying The Right Things – And He Means Them

tedcruz-998x668

Cruz is not afraid of a fight. He said he doesn’t think God is finished with America. In saying that he angered all of those who hate our country, including some Republicans. First he invoked the name of God and second he told us all that our country is divinely inspired. Most Americans fear for our country after six years of destructive practices. We hunger for a leader who, like Reagan, made us proud to live in the United States.

Reagan came along after the Malaise and incompetence of Jimmy Carter and told us we were the best nation in the world. We knew it but Carter had told us that we were something else. We knew he was wrong. But it was uplifting to be told again that we were the freest, kindest, and most capable people in the world. We ate it up. He never stopped the positive message, either. We knew we were the ‘Shining city on the hill’ and the last hope for mankind.

We still are. Americans are starving for a leader who will agree with us. Cruz has made a good start. Whether he winds up with the nomination or not he will have a profound effect on the political landscape of the 2016 Presidential election.

He has scared the left with one half-hour speech. So far the worst thing they can say about him is that he helped shut down the government:

cruz govt shutdown

No wonder they are scared. Even CNN asks, “How do you solve a problem like Ted Cruz?”.

Cruz gave a powerful speech at Liberty University. He did not stand behind a podium. He paced the floor and addressed all of the audience and he did it without a teleprompter. Alan Dershowitz, no Conservative, had him in his classes at Harvard. He called him, “… off the charts brilliant“. And, “One of the sharpest students I had . . . I’ve had 10,000 students over my 50 years at Harvard . . . he has to qualify among the brightest of the students.”

He’s an award-winning debater, too. I’d love to see him debate Hillary Clinton.

Did I mention that I like him?

Moe Lane Notices The Stupidity Of The Left

“NPR’s Lead Editor for Politics unaware that Evangelicals support Israel.”

israel

Of course this dimwit is talking about the biggest applause line in Ted Cruz’ declaration speech. Cruz said, “Imagine a President who supports Israel”. The young Christian kids in the audience erupted in applause. You and I understood. Only a leftist would think it unusual.

You see, in the real world it’s been known for decades that Evangelical Christians in America have been rock-solid boosters of Israel. It’s partially due to theology*, partially due to an appreciation of Israel as a functional democracy and economic powerhouse in a region not really known for either, and not a little because all of Israel’s wars end with them surrounded by a circle of dead enemies**. Whatever the reason, it’s one of those things that is. That this is not known at NPR is startling. And again, probably more an indictment of the system than the people who work for it.

Some of the people who listen to it, on the other hand… hoo, boy. That link above will provide you with some real winners, when it comes to casual anti-Christian bigotry. And the worse part? They think that they’re as tolerant as they are educated… which, hey! – That might even be true.

I emphasized the best line from Lane. You can read it all here

“Israel: Beware of Obama”

got-your-back

This is from the New York Post:

First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet.

He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican “enemies.” He abandons our ­allies, appeases tyrants, coddles ­adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.
Now he’s coming for Israel.

Barack Obama’s promise to transform America was too modest. He is transforming the whole world before our eyes. Do you see it yet?”

We need your help in asking your readers/listeners to post #NoMorein16 on their social media accounts. We believe this will go viral throughout the conservative community as conservatives are tired of the same old faces and lies in the Republican Party.
We want this to go viral on Facebook and Twitter as a warning to the RINO Establishment.

Now That’s Something To Hope For – From A Democrat

Currently my favorite image of Cruz

Currently my favorite image of Cruz

Senator Ted Cruz has declared he is running for the Presidency as a Republican. Reactions are all over the board. Most leftists are angry. That means he is over the target as bomber crews would say about flak and antiaircraft fire. Here is a quote from one that may be more accurate than we can know.

Ted Cruz has been running the Republican Party for years, driving extreme policies that put Tea Party politics ahead of middle class families,” said Ben Ray, spokesman for the Democratic opposition research organization said, adding that Cruz’s “run for President will do exactly what he’s done in the Senate: bring out the Tea Partier in every last Republican candidate.”

Read ‘The Pig Trap’

It’s a long but well-written story.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s a story of the second American Civil War:

I said, “Well, you are a military man… what would that look like?”

Wheeler said, “Well, it wouldn’t look like the first Civil War… no lines of men standing in ranks and shooting across a field at each other, no “North and South” or sharply defined state lines for friendly and enemy territories, at least, not in the beginning. No, it would look more like Iraq or Afghanistan, with house to house fighting, IED’s, snipers, small factions and independent militias operating on their own, refugees streaming away from battle zones in all directions…”

“But the first question to ask is who would the combatants be? I mean, the Army isn’t going to just roll out onto the street in tanks on day one, so my guess is that it would start out as a police action, with Federal agencies like ATF and FBI taking the lead, supported by local law enforcement. But once people start shooting back, they would have to ratchet things up, do things like institute curfews and roadblocks, and they would eventually try to press the various state Guard units into service. That’s where it all goes squirrelly, because both local law enforcement and the Guard will be riddled with people who support gun rights, regardless of what laws the politicians pass, and they won’t be crazy about having to police, and maybe even fight against, their own people. The Governors may well object to the state Guard units being activated and may not wish to cooperate…”

“And it is not clear to me how many LEO and Guardsmen would remain loyal to the government and how many would join the “rebellion”. My guess is that both sides would be riddled with defections, informants, and spies. But what if, say, the Gulf states like Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida secede, and they take control of all military bases and equipment, and you suddenly have gone from an insurgency with rifles to a breakaway nation, or maybe several breakaway nations, armed with fighter jets, drones, tanks, and a navy? Whoo, buddy… now all bets are off… kiss posse comitatus goodbye. This would be the ugliest thing this county has ever seen…”

iowahawk 1200

Another teaser:

Wheeler got quiet for a few moments, and then he said something that I will never, ever forget.

“These people are playing with matches… I don’t think they understand the scope and scale of the wildfire they are flirting with. They are f*cking around with a civil war that could last a decade and cause millions of deaths… and the sad truth is that 95% of the problems we have in this country could be solved tomorrow, by noon… simply by dragging 100 people out in the street and shooting them in the f*cking head.”

“Ted Cruz to announce presidential bid Monday”

The race for the Presidency will get a lot more interesting if this is true. Senator Cruz is detested by the left. MSNBC haters refer to him as the modern day Joe McCarthy. They will try everything, including false allegations, to try to Palinize him.

I salivate at the mere thought of a televised debate between Cruz and Hillary Clinton.

A question: Who would he pick for a running mate? Another: How would he be received in Iowa and New Hampshire? I’d bet he’d get standing O’s.

cruz pointing

Sen. Ted Cruz plans to announce Monday that he will run for president of the United States, according to his senior advisers, accelerating his already rapid three-year rise from a tea party insurgent in Texas into a divisive political force in Washington.

Cruz, scheduled to speak Monday at a convocation ceremony at Liberty University in Virginia, will not form an exploratory committee but rather launch a presidential bid outright, said advisers with direct knowledge of his plans, who spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made yet. They say he is done exploring and is now ready to become the first Republican presidential candidate.”

NYT: “‘Draft Joe Biden’ Group Urges Race Against Hillary Clinton”

Biden is 72 years old. During the 2016 election campaign he will be 74. He is also stupid and has trouble keeping his hands off women and young girls.

biden kisses little girl

Amid Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email problems and Senator Elizabeth Warren’s reluctance to run for president, the “Draft Joe Biden” movement is getting real.

A group billing themselves as “former staffers and campaign veterans” launched Draft Joe Biden on Thursday night along with RunBidenRun.com, a website for organizing volunteers and a petition urging Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. to jump in to the 2016 race.

Mr. Biden has hinted that he’s considering another run for president, but his poll numbers have been weak and he does not appear to be making the usual pre-campaign moves.”
