John Winnick II, USMC


All charges against USMC Sgt John Winnick II have been dismissed with prejudice.

Never heard of him?
The anti-military MSM was surprisingly quiet about this.

Sgt John Winnick II is a Marine sniper who had been charged with two counts of voluntary manslaughter for performing ... during combat ops ... the job he was trained and sent to Iraq to do ... on one of his four deployments.

The story can be found here.

Semper Fi, Sergeant.

Barky Obummer's True Colors


NOTE: This is NOT about RACE.
And I shouldn't have to say that, but I do.

Presidential candidate ... not President ... Barack Hussein Obama has again shown his true colors and they are not red, white and blue.
In the recent brouhaha -hahaha- over his Obamessiah's canceled visit to wounded American troops at Landstuhl Military Hospital in Germany, it has been noted that the Pentagon's policy does not allow military facilities to be used as a campaign backdrop.

That means no campaign staffers and no campaign photographers.

Which means no photo opportunities, except that by military photographers.

And apparently it means no Barack Hussein Obama.

Robert Gibbs, Obummer campaign spokesman, told reporters Barky had planned for weeks to visit Landstuhl and had would have left most staff and all the reporters behind to avoid
appearances of a campaign event (stunt), and that Obummer

"decided out of respect for these servicemen and women that it would be inappropriate to make a stop to visit troops at a U.S. military facility as part of a trip funded by the campaign."
Meanwhile, at the Pentagon, spokesman Bryan Whitman said:
"The Pentagon certainly did not tell the senator he could not visit Landstuhl."
So Barky could have visited American men and women wounded in the service of their country, but chose not to do so.

Because it would have been seen as a campaign event (stunt).

Of course it would have been a campaign event (stunt).


When has Barky visited the troops anywhere at any other time?
Once in 2006 (2-day CODEL trip to Iraq).

How about about Walter Reed or Bethesda military Hospitals?
Ummm, never?

This entire Euroblitztrip is nothing but a campaign event (stunt).

So how did the Obamessiah use that suddenly available time?

He went shopping.

And now the O-Campaign is citing (blaming) the Pentagon in a pathetic effort to spin rightly-deserved backlash away from the Obamessiah.

Note to anyone who would be Commander-in-Chief:
It is never inappropriate to visit our military men and women, wounded or otherwise.

Barky Obummer's Tour de Farce


Barack Hussein Obama, in an effort to bolster, i.e. create, his so-called foreign policy credentials has taken a Congressional, i.e. campaign, trip to the Middle East and Europe.

Noteworthy stops on his schedule, i.e. agenda, included meeting the troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and Germany. The German stops included visiting wounded troops at the US military hospital in Landstuhl.

He will not visit Landstuhl Regional Medical Center after all.
And why not?

Version #One:

The Democratic presidential candidate thought it would be inappropriate on a campaign-funded journey.

Version #Two:

The Democratic presidential candidate ran short of time; priorities were set; less-useful stops were eliminated.
"The message here is that thousands of screaming German fans at the Tiergarten take precedence over visiting Americans serving their country at Ramstein and Landstuhl. Maybe one of the networks following Obama could interview a few of the soldiers about how they perceive that set of priorities from Obama." - Ed Morrissey
Note to the Junior Senator from Illinois:

It is NEVER inappropriate to visit our military men and women, wounded or otherwise.

It is ALWAYS reprehensible for someone who wants to be Commander in Chief of our military to place foreign nationals ahead of American men and women serving their country in uniform.

Barky Obummer: Inexperienced and Inept


Almost anyone can run for POTUS.
There are certain criteria which must be met, but apparently being experienced is not on that list.

Enter Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Obamessiah.

Granted, he accomplished something no one thought possible ... he derailed (for the moment) the seemingly inexorable march of Hillary, aka the Hildabeast, to the White House.

Let's just check Barky Obummer's Senate bio.

Hmmm. 8 years in the Illinois state Senate.
Less than a full-term in the U.S. Senate.
And if you calculate the actual number of days he has worked in Washington, it's less than 200 days.

So now, in an effort to bolster ... no, wait. That's the wrong word.

In an effort to create some foreign policy credentials, Barky has lately been running around the Middle East and Europe, providing glorious photo-ops for the adoring, slobbering press.

Barky has, just this week, been seen 'meeting' with American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, which he has never been bothered to do before now;

He elated the Jews and pissed off the Arabs with his remark about a united Jerusalem, then back-tracked saying he meant something else; pissing off everybody.

And just today in a Berlin speech, he says:
"Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen..."
Uh, huh.

Robbie Cooper at UrbanGrounds has a great take on that:

"You are most definitely there as a Presidential candidate.

“Private citizens” don’t fill up an airplane with all of their media buddies and sycophants and go sight seeing around the globe talking about “when I’m Commander in Chief” and a host of other political issues and topics…

Barry really does believe he is already the President of the United States. And, by God (or Allah, if you will), he wants the rest of the world to know it too.

He then went on to play the race card in his very next statement — claiming that many other “citizens” of our nation have come and stood before you. But that none of them “looked like me.”

> Obama's exact words were: "I know that I don't look like the Americans who've previously spoken in this great city." NF <

"Yeah, we get it Barry.
You’re half black."

Which he won't let us forget.
And inexperienced, which he doesn't want us to remember.

The Audacity of ... Audacity

* Audacity: bold or arrogant disregard of normal restraints

Barack Hussein Obama has trouble handling criticism.

So much so that :

We’re not allowed to mention his middle name: Hussein.

We’re not allowed to talk about his Kenyan father's side of the family.

We’re not allowed to talk about his terrorist friends, William Ayers & Bernadine Dohrn, or about his (now former) reverend and mentor, Jeremiah Wright, who called for god to "Damn America".

We’re not allowed to talk about his shady real-estate dealings nor his admitted drug use.

We’re not allowed to talk about
his Muslim upbringing in Indonesia, his ties to the Nation of Islam or about the radical Islamic terrorists who support his candidacy..

We’re not allowed to talk about his patriotism (the lack of), unless it's the 'newly-found' version.

We’re not allowed to talk about his wife, Michelle, even though he wants us to accept her as the First Lady of this country.

Anyone who dares to offer any criticism or caricature of the Obamessiah as less than perfect is characterized by the Obamaniacs as *gasp* a RACIST.


If his skin is too thin to handle criticism, he's really in the wrong business.

Imagine if he had to tolerate the endless disrespect that a sitting President has had to endure for the last six years.

Imagine him as a 'guest' of Uncle Ho at the Hanoi Hilton for five years.

Barack Hussein Obama is nothing more than a pandering politician loaded with inexperience, arrogance, and a sense of entitlement.


Like others in his profession, he can dish it out but not take it.

Obummer's empty suit needs filling out.
Growing a pair would be a good start.

Together They Will Come Home


The agonizing year-long wait for news of Iraq War POW-MIAs Alex Jimenez
and Byron Fouty is over. The Pentagon has confirmed the deaths of both soldiers.

The two were kidnapped after their unit was ambushed on May 12, 2007, in the volatile area south of Baghdad known as the "triangle of death" while serving with the 10th Mountain Division, based at Fort Drum, NY.

New England Care for Our Military, a family
support group, had a banner for the missing soldiers:

“Together they serve our nation and together they will come home.”

So they did And so they will.

The Company We Keep


"Barry's Friends: Will They Be Welcome At An Obama White House?"





Probably.
Unless there is a huge public outcry and the Candidate of Change changes his mind, yet again.

Congressional Fool: Weiner the Whiner


Apparently Anthony Weiner,
Democratic Congressman from NY, doesn't consider the personal sacrifices our military husbands and wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters are making as enough.

To the best of my knowledge he is the first and only Congressional Fool to make such an outrageous proposal.

World War II, Revised


To PBS:

I won't be watching the travesty of historical revisionism you plan to air tonight -

"The War of the World:
A New History of the 20th Century," based on Niall Ferguson's book "The War of the World: Twentieth Century Conflict and the
Descent of the West".

You see, revulsion to revisionist history runs in the family.

My (late) father served in WW II as a pilot with the 84th Bombardment Squadron, 47th Group in Europe and Northern Africa.

For his efforts he received the American Theater Ribbon, 5 Overseas Service Bars, European-African-Middle Eastern Ribbon with 3 Bronze Battle Stars, Distinguished Air Medal and the American Service Medal.

He had returned from Europe and was on the verge of being sent to the Pacific Theater when Japan surrendered.

Dad would not watch the movie "Patton".
Not after the 1st time, when 10 or fifteen minutes into the film, Generals Patton and Bradley were discussing the Battle at Kasserine Pass. Patton asked where the air support was ... and Bradley replied, "There was none."

Well, according to my dad there was.
He should know, he was there.
And had 3 planes shot out from under him.

I don't think my dad would be watching your so-called documentary either.
