Wrong…Wrong…and Wrong Again

February 16, 2015

The U.S. embassy in Yemen is closing as turmoil in the country increases and security deteriorates. This is the same Yemen that President Obama held up last September as a successful model for fighting ISIS, the same ISIS he compared to a “JV team” a little over a year ago.

Obama is now seeking war powers from Congress to help in the fight against ISIS. His premature promise not to put boots on the ground (where there were already boots on the ground) is starting to look a lot like his promise of keeping your doctor and your health insurance plan. He is now considering “limited” ground combat operations against ISIS. Zero has turned into limited – and this is far from over.

He gave terrorists advance notice of when he was going to pull out of Iraq and then, ignoring military advice, pulled all of our troops out and proclaimed the war in Iraq to be over. As predicted, terrorists immediately began taking over Iraq. Obama denied this and began a victory dance over Osama bin Laden’s death and his self-proclaimed decimation of Al Qaeda, the same Al Qaeda that has tripled attacks since 2010 and just now seized an army base in Yemen.

In 2012, President Obama set the use of chemical weapons as a “red line” for using military force in Syria and then did absolutely nothing when chemical weapons were used. Later, in 2013, he tried to say he never set that red line in the first place, blaming the “world” for setting it. It is clear he set it and reneged, setting the stage for ISIS to grow into the world threat it has become.

This president has been horribly wrong on everything concerning the Middle East and terrorism. How wrong does he have to be for supporters and the media to hold him accountable and seriously question his leadership? How much more damage can he do while we wait for that to happen?

First the Tears, Now the Anger: Pakistanis Burn US Flags as Backlash over Bin Laden’s Death Grows

May 10, 2011

From the UK Mail:

These were the angry scenes across Pakistan today as Muslims staged protests against the killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

Hundreds of people marched through Multan, burning U.S. flags and waving placards as they warned the terrorist’s death could produce many more radical figures to take his place.

It comes after crowds of weeping mourners were pictured offering funeral prayers for the Al Qaeda mastermind widely blamed for thousands of deaths at 9/11.

Bush Officials: Good Job Obama, but…

May 8, 2011

From CNN:

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld applauded the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden under the Obama administration, but also highlighted the pivotal role their team played in the search for America’s most wanted terrorist. “It was also important that President Bush put in place counterterrorism strategies and policies, efforts that the military and intelligence have been making over the years,” Rice told CNN’s “American Morning” on Tuesday. “To work together better to achieve that kind of level of integration didn’t happen yesterday. This is something that has been happening for quite a long time.”

Rice said that the discovery of bin Laden’s whereabouts was made possible by intelligence gathered during the Bush administration, pointing to how the roundup of al Qaeda field generals such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in 2003 and Abu Faraj al Libi in 2005, helped provide the link to bin Laden’s courier, who ultimately lead C.I.A operatives to the compound where bin Laden was staying.

More Stupidity From Moore

May 4, 2011

Michael Moore is a mountain of ignorance, hate, and self-righteousness. Having tricked the American capitalist system into making himself a millionaire, he now bites the very hand that fed (overfed?) him. In a typical far-left delusional manner, he offers nothing but disdain for America at the news of Bin Laden’s death.

In full denial of the danger from terrorism, he sneeringly asks: “Now that bin Laden’s dead, can we put shampoo in our carry on? Can I keep my shoes on? Can we bring all the troops home?”  His insistence that “there is no terrorism” has taken hold of his brain like an evil fungus and made him totally clueless.

His pessimistic and sarcastic attitude concerning everything about America is a poison the media continues to ingest like manna from heaven. Refusing to lay blame on any terrorist, Moore sneeringly calls Bin Laden “the monster we created”. While that may be rationally debated, there is no debating that Moore, himself, is a monster created by the media’s treatment of him as a political oracle.

It is unsettling that guilt-ridden, misanthropic and misguided people feel compelled to proudly display their psychological impairments like a demented float in every American victory parade. It is further unsettling that the press continues to present that view to the world as if all Americans are buffoons like Moore. It is getting very tiring.

Cindy Sheehan a Racist?

May 3, 2011

Cindy Sheehan is back in the news with a vehement denial of the death of Osama Bin Laden. According to Cindy, the “Empire” faked Osama’s death and anyone who believes differently is just plain stupid.

Stupidity is a tired but popular accusation from the far left against anyone doubting their blind ideology or twisted perceptions. One has to wonder, however, if their other favorite accusation will surface against Cindy. Isn’t it time to “out” Cindy as a racist for not believing Obama? There seems to be no other valid reason according to the far left – or even the near left. Racism is the only reason.

Cindy Sheehan faded into the woodwork since Obama was elected, or at least the media made it seem that way. To Cindy’s credit, though, she has consistently remained anti-war, even when evil George Bush left office and the “One” took over. Unlike so many others, she did not find herself accepting war once Obama decided to become an armchair warrior. As wacky as she may be, she at least remained faithful to her principles.

One can now expect Cindy to be subjected to the ever-changing principles of “progressives” as they attack her for daring to disagree openly with Obama. She will be labeled a racist, a loon, and a stupid un-American Islamaphobe. Any political aspirations she may have had are dead. Her considerable community organizing experience will count for nothing.

Cindy has become nothing more than another American racist blindly lashing out in hate at a black president. Perhaps if she resurrected her tent in front of Bush’s house and wore a “Darth Cheney” outfit she could re-gain the media’s favor. After all, it doesn’t take much to bend the media’s rubber principles.
