Just last weekend, at a rally in Iran, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei was interrupted by the chant as he was denouncing American “lies” and “arrogance.” He smiled and responded, “Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.”
The administration reasons that in ten to 15 years, the Iranian regime will improve. It is willing to gamble that once Iran achieves nuclear status, it won’t use nuclear bombs or share them with terrorists. It is willing to gamble that the other unstable nations in the region won’t get nuclear weapons in response. It is willing to gamble that future leaders of Iran won’t be even more radical than those in power now. It is impossible to recall a more dangerous or foolish set of assumptions by an American president in modern American history. “Death to America” might become more than a chant.
I am asking you to stop reading for a moment – just stop reading, and don’t just glance at that composite picture of these men’s faces. Just stop for a moment, and look at them, as I did, and realize that the mothers and fathers of these six men did not get to stand in glory next to Barack Obama at the White House, or walk arm-in-arm with him down the portico. Those parents suffered – they suffer today and will suffer for every day of their lives – because Bowe Bergdhal thought the Afghan deployment was lame and walked off towards the mountains. Those parents are suffering today because when Bowe Bergdhal took his walk, they – and many, many others – were sent to look for him. And they were killed, while Bowe Bergdahl lived, because while they too probably thought the deployment was lame they stayed and did their duty to their unit, their Army, their parents, their country, it’s President and most of all they fulfilled their duty to themselves.
Because the American Deserter, you see, cares not for the men that serve in uniform. He cares not for the US Army; he does in fact find them to be bullies and fools. The American Deserter hates this country, is deeply ashamed of it, and he always has been. The American Deserter is a narcissist who can never, ever be wrong. The American Deserter traded one psychologically damaged traitor for five key terrorists; the American Deserter watched men die on a rooftop in Benghazi and did nothing; the American Deserter traded the security and future of Poland and Eastern Europe to the Russians in return for political gains and he did it on TV; the American Deserter exchanges the most sensitive National Security information with his Secretary of State on non-secure servers with knowledge that it is both illegal and potentially crippling and he does not care. It is abundantly clear – and it has been abundantly clear for some time – that the American Deserter considers this deployment lame and he has walked off toward the golf courses in the Hamptons or the beaches in Hawaii where he can be found practically daily: bathed in his own glory, responsible to no one and nothing, and following dictates of his own diseased conscience while better men than him die to keep him from having to face justice.
Because, when implanted in one’s back a knife tends to sting for a long time … especially when the Racist-in-Chief keeps twisting it.
Even if you had no source of news other than ultra-liberal MSNBC, that would be no excuse for failing to understand that Obama must be removed from office before he causes further harm. Here it is confirmed that our allies no longer inform the United States before taking military action against our shared enemies, because they do not trust Obama not to tip off Iran
Even if we overcome the demographic transformation and elect presidents inclined to promote America’s interests from 2016 forward, it will take at least a generation to live down the disgusting disgrace of Obama’s presidency in the eyes of the world.
~~ Earl of Taint : Here Comes Barry Rottenfail
… a teacup tyrant who has filled his own pockets to the tune of $10 million while decrying the allegedly baleful influence of the wealthy on politics, a man who has done violence to ethical standards left and right, using campaign funds for personal expenditures and trying to hide payments channeled to his granddaughter, who takes to the Senate floor to make patently false, malicious, and increasingly loopy claims about his political rivals, and who is leading a partisan assault on the Bill of Rights. If America needs a(nother) good reason to hand Democrats their heads come November, then they would do well to study the career of Harry Reid (D., Ritz-Carlton), the Sheriff of Nottingham to Barack Obama’s Prince John.
There is no gentle way to characterize Senator Reid’s career: He is and long has been one of the worst things about American government — a self-interested, dishonest, sanctimonious, unscrupulous charlatan who began his career with an act of cheap theater
He has grown wealthy in office and made fortuitous investments in real estate that later benefited from federal projects. He used campaign funds as a family slush fund, channeling money to his granddaughter and taking dubious steps to conceal the fact — omitting her surname from official documents — all while posing as a champion of campaign-finance reform. He invested an extraordinary amount of time and effort — including speeches from the Senate floor — denouncing two private citizens for their philanthropic and political donations. He flat-out lied when it suited him …
He has been as near to a personification of everything that is wrong with American public life as we ever hope to see. His retirement announcement leaves only one thing to be lamented: that Nevadans will be denied the opportunity to finally discover sufficient reserves of self-respect to defeat him at the ballot box.
As Harry Reid leaves government, we wish him good health and long life.
Speak for yourself, Ole Hoss. Because I wish no such thing.
The undersecretary of the Army apologized for the military’s treatment of service members exposed to chemical weapons in Iraq, and he announced new steps to provide medical support to those with lingering health effects and to recognize veterans who had been denied awards, according to the The New York Times.
Undersecretary Brad Carson acknowledged Wednesday that the military had not followed its own policies for caring for troops exposed to old and abandoned chemical munitions scattered around Iraq and vowed improvement.
The report found that insurgents had used some of the weapons in roadside bombs, that most of the episodes had never been publicly acknowledged and that many troops affected by blister or nerve agents had received substandard medical care and denied military awards.
Purple Hearts being passed out for injuries from weapons that never existed?
Are these the new Purple Heart design with John Kerry’s likeness? or were all the anti-war-for-oil flag-burning ‘no WMDs!!’-screeching leftists wrong?
One or the other. Which?
Either there were WMDs or there weren’t. No in between.
Bush was right and all the soon-to-be (THHO)Obama ass-kissers were wrong … or these Purple Hearts are being issued inside boxes of Cracker Jacks.
» New York Times Bombshell: Chemical Weapons Were Found in Iraq — But the Public Never Knew Until Now
Correction: the public that sits around on it’s thumbs, saturated in the leftist media bullshit, never knew. The rest of us remembered that chokeloads of them were not only found but confiscated, impounded and stored in warehouses – BEFORE the war started …. by the U.N.!
Chemical weapons were found by U.S. forces in Iraq, but the Pentagon kept the findings a secret, the New York Times reported Tuesday evening.
According to the Times, from 2004 to 2011 American troops repeatedly encountered chemical munitions in the Middle Eastern country. In at least six cases, coalition forces were even wounded by the weapons from the Saddam Hussein era
“’Nothing of significance’ is what I was ordered to say,” said Jarrod Lampier, a now-retired Army major who was present when forces found 2,400 nerve agent rockets in 2006 — the largest chemical weapons discovery of the war….
Another soldier, Jarrod L. Taylor, who witnessed the destruction of mustard shells, joked of “wounds that never happened” from “that stuff that didn’t exist,”
A death spiral generally occurs when insurers are forced to raise premiums sharply to pay promised benefits. Higher premiums cause many of the healthiest policyholders, who already pay far more in premiums than they receive in benefits, to drop coverage.
~~ via Poor Richards News : Obamacare’s death spiral
The mere fact that we’re questioning whether or not a court can RE-interpret a law to mean whatever an administration (not a lawmaker) wants it to mean retroactively is outrageous. The law means what it says and says what it means, plain and simple. Yes, if there is ambiguity and room for interpretation, then a court either overturns it or tries to interpret it based on context and the words of those who wrote it and/or voted for it. That’s it. First of all, there is no ambiguity in this law in regards to who can implement it: States. Not the feds. States. But even if this isn’t good enough for the courts, the very architect of the law, Jonathan Gruber, has described in detail why the law explicitly leaves out the federal government. There is no ambiguity. It was intentional. Yet at least four extreme left activist judges on the court will ignore this because they like Obamacare. They don’t care anything about the rule of law, fairness or the Constitution. They make decisions based on feelings.
“While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,”

Clinton destroyed evidence. She did so knowing she was breaking federal law. She did so knowing there would be repercussions.
She did so because whatever repercussions forthcoming would be a drop in the ocean compared to the repercussions of exposure of what was on that email server.
Hillary’s emails may be only the tip of an iceberg that could include Clinton Foundation donations to shield Boko Haram from being designated a terrorist group and her brother’s involvement in a Haitian gold mine.
White people are born white, are they not? Is Salon admitting that some races are genetically predisposed to doing things that are wrong?
» Black legislator accuses white colleague’s toddler of racism
During a heated debate over an Indiana “religious freedom” bill, a Democratic representative took the opportunity to accuse the child of one of her colleagues of racism.
Which proved beyond denial that the “religious freedom bill” is good idea … or a bad idea? We don’t know do we? Because she didn’t actually address the bill. It was just her turn to waddle up to the podium and say something and she said the only thing she knows – the only thing she ever says, the only thing that got her elected by a district of idiots: r-r-r-r-R-R-R-RACIST!
Summers is another ‘Black in the Box’. No matter how many times you try turning the crank, it always pops up and screams the same crap.
» FBI Admits All Registered Motorcycle Owners Are On Classified Gang List
… the FBI has been collecting and compiling Department of Motor Vehicles and Drivers License Division records for the purpose of adding those that own motorcycles to a classified gang list since 1994.
“It’s nothing more than collecting and utilizing data. We may not like to admit it, but the truth of the matter is that those that own and operate motorcycles are 67% more likely to be involved in illegal or criminal activity than those that do not own or operate a motorcycle.”
“as a nation do we complain when we add someone that has a Crips or Bloods tattoo to a gang list even though the individual swears up and down that they don’t have gang affiliation? Again these are 2 situations that are interchangeable, we can’t pick and choose.”
… suggested a recently launched congressional investigation into sources of his and other climate scientists’ research funding is an attempt by Democrats in Washington to squelch dissenting opinions about the degree of climate warming and the role that human-generated greenhouse gas emissions have in a shifting climate.
virtually the entire Western world (and rational human beings around the globe) opposes Obama’s horrific Iran deal that will allow the terror state to continue to enrich uranium and eventually deliver nuclear warheads through ICBMs or via its terror proxy, Hezbollah.
As a result of their opposition to the deal, Obama has targeted Israel (by repeatedly revealing Top Secret information that harms the security posture of the Jewish state) and any allies that dare speak up against the deal (e.g., France).
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia and Iran are now engaging in a proxy war in Yemen (which Obama claimed was a success story just six months ago) as ISIS continues its expansionary efforts.
Hundreds of thousands of people have already died thanks to Obama’s destabilized Middle East (e.g., the Syrian “red line”, the Libya “NATO”-led coup, etc.) and many millions more will die in the future as a result of allowing a fanatical Iranian regime to acquire nuclear weapons.
