MMM Missed These

The Mainstream Media Morons  ignored  missed  these:

Van Jones (WH Green Jobs advisor),   ACORN tapes,   John Holdren (Science Czar),   Climate-gate,   politicizing the NEA,   Chas Freeman (NIC Chairman),    Tea Party protests,    Kevin Jennings (safe School Czar),    Democratic stimulus

The 28th Amendment

This would be a great one:

Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .

My Congressman IS Nuts

Alan Grayson, Harvard graduate, who represents Florida's 8th district (and me) in the US House of Representatives, now wants to deprive Angie Langley of not only her 1st amendment right to freedom of speech but her personal freedom as well ... because she dared to create a website critical of him.

No kidding.

I have a BS degree from a mere state university, not from a high-falutin' Ivy League Institution of Higher Liberalism, but I DO understand what the 1st Amendment to the Constitution is all about. 
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Mr. Grayson swore to "support and defend" the US Constitution.
Apparently he thinks he can pick and choose which parts.

The Buck Stops Where

Barack Obama Gets an "F" for (not) Protecting Americans

The Highlights:
There is no more solemn duty for an American commander-in-chief than the marshaling of  “all elements of American power” – the phrase Obama himself used on Monday – to protect the people of the United States. In that key respect, Obama failed on Christmas Day, just as President George W. Bush failed on September 11th (though he succeeded in the seven years after that).

Yes, the buck stops in the Oval Office. Obama may have rather smugly given himself a “B+” for his 2009 performance but he gets an F for the events that led to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarding a Detroit-bound plane in Amsterdam with a PETN bomb sewn into his underpants.  He said today that a  “systemic failure has occurred”. Well, he’s in charge of that system.

The picture we’re getting is more and more alarming by the hour. Here are some key elements to consider:

...  Abdulmutallab’s father spoke several times to the US Embassy in Abuja, Nigeria and visited a CIA officer there to tell him, apparently, that he feared his son was a jihadist being trained in Yemen.  According to CNN, the CIA officer wrote up a report, which then sat in the CIA headquarters at Langley for several weeks without being disseminated to the rest of the intelligence community. 

...  In his studied desire to be the unBush by responding coolly to events like this, Obama is dangerously close to failing as a leader. Yes, it is good not to shoot from the hip and make broad assertions without the facts.

    But Obama took three days before speaking to the American people, emerging on Monday in between golf and tennis games in Hawaii to deliver a rather tepid address that significantly underplayed what happened. He described Abdulmutallab as an “isolated extremist” who “allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body” phrases that indicate a legalistic, downplaying approach that alarms rather than reassures. 

   In the meantime, he went snorkeling.

 ... There has been a pattern developing with the Obama administration trying to minimize terrorist attacks. We saw it with Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad, a Muslim convert who murdered a US Army recruit in Little Rock, Arkansas in June. We saw it with Major Nidal Malik Hassan, a Muslim with Palestinian roots who slaughtered 13 at Fort Hood, Texas last month.  In both cases, there were Yemen connections.

... Guantanamo Bay ...  As Mike Goldfarb asks: “Is the Obama administration seriously still considering sending some 90 Yemeni detainees now being held at Gitmo back to their country of origin, where al Qaeda are apparently running around with impunity?”

... Janet Napolitano, Obama’s Homeland Security Chief, has been a disaster in this, exhibiting the kind of bureaucratic complacency that makes ordinary citizens want to go postal.

... There’s a continued, unfortunate tendency for everyone in Obamaland to preface every comment about something going wrong with a sideswipe against the Bush administration. ...  It’s bordering on the juvenile. Obama’s been president for a year now. It’s time for him to accept that things that happen as his responsibility, not Bush’s. It’s time for him to echo Ronald Reagan, who said over Iran-Contra: “I take full responsibility for my own actions and for those of my administration.”

As with the Clinton co-presidency, the buck stops somewhere down the hall.

Obama's Thin Skin

This is not about Race.
And I shouldn't have to say that, but I do.

Barack Hussein Obama's skin is way too thin for a POTUS.

The liberal media morons (and other loonies) have coddled, encouraged and enabled this arrogant elitist nobody to believe that everybody loves him and everything he does and says is wonderfully messianic.

So, when someone dares to disagree or even question him, well, you risk incurring the displeasure, maybe even wrath, and definitely the sarcasm of Barack Hussein Obama.

So much for the fair, bi-partisan, and transparent government we were promised if only we would vote for him.

3 Days

That's how long it took Barack Hussein Obama to make a public comment on the attempted airplane bombing on Xmas Day.

ABC News actually put it, "interrupted his Hawaiian vacation".
Only since January 19, 2009, has an attempted terror attack been considered an interruption.

Barky actually used the words "allegedly" (the guy's pants were on fire) and "isolated extremist". Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility, and the guy's own father notified authorities regarding his son's radicalization. Did Barky mention that? Of course not.

It's a shame that your $4000 per-night Hawaiian vacation was interrupted, Barky, (and the golf game, tennis game, and picnic) but isn't POTUS a 24/7 job? Someone needs to tell Barky that his voting "present" days are long past.
US Rep. Peter King (R/NY): "We're now, what, 72 hours into this and the president has not spoken, the vice president has not spoken, the attorney general has not spoken and (Homeland Security Secretary) Janet Napolitano has now told two different stories in two days.

"It's very hard, even for me being on the Homeland Security Committee and the intelligence committee, to get any information out of this administration," King said.

An Inconvient Fact

All of a sudden the Goracle, global warming alarmist extraordinaire, doesn't want to give interviews.

Why is that?
Has the truth become inconvenient?

Stephen King Redemption

Author Stephen King has redeemed himself somewhat.

(see: Stephen King Channels John Kerry   )

Good Onya, Stephen.

Un-Bloody-Believable: Dhimmitude

The Rt Rev Stephen Venner , the new bishop for the U.K.'s Armed Forces:
"The Taliban can be admired for their Faith and Loyalty."

He does not want the Afghan insurgents "portrayed too negatively".

The Rt Rev Stephen Venner called for a more sympathetic approach to the Islamic fundamentalists that recognises their humanity.

What the hell?
Admiring their faith and loyalty? Their humanity?
These people whose faith values death over life? Whose faith includes stoning women to death? Whose humanity uses women and children as shields?

What's negative about that?

I wonder if Rev Venner has spent any time in the field with the troops in Afghanistan. I bet the answer is no.

Perhaps he and Peter Davies, the mayor of Doncaster who claimed "British society could learn from Taliban family values", could be guests of the Taliban. Experience the life. Without protection from any troops.

Hat/Tip: to Stable Hand at  The Jawa Report
 who comments:
When I first saw the headline in my inbox, I thought ah, satire. Nope. How many times have we heard "if only if we will be more nice to the terrorists".......?
I guess throwing acid in young girls faces doesn't matter to the Bishop, we just have to be nicer .... aaaarrrggghhhh. Jawa has an archive full of Taliban shit. Or the beheading archives, plenty there from the sick bastages.

A Response to Obama's Quirky American History Lesson

The Opinionated Fool forwarded the following (which he found in a newsgroup, author unknown):
Islam is not part of America's story, Hussein ...

Barack Hussein Obama said, in his "New Beginning" Cairo speech (June, 2009):

"I know, too that Islam has always been a part of America's story."

Dear Mr. Obama:

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed?  Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day?   Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?  Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn't think so.

 Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England?

 Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America?
No, they did not.

In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human  slavery. Your own 'half-brother', a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage" doesn't it Mr. Obama?

 Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present. There are no pictures or media accounts of  Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era?  Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib'  or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband.   Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights aren't they?

At least when the Muslims are not beheading their own wives and daughters (5,000 times a year) in what they call "Honor Killings."

Where were Muslims during World War II?  They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?

If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the middle east. No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day.  Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

 And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America.

The 'Enemy Camp'

According to major media moron Chris Matthews, the 'Enemy Camp' is The United States Military Academy at West Point.

After Barack Hussein Obama delivered his Plan-to-Lose-the-War-in-Afghanistan speech at West Point, Chris Matthews had this to say about the Cadets, those young men and women who are willing to put themselves between the horrors of war and the comforts of home for anti-military 'journalists' like Matthews and anti-military presidents like Obama:

I wonder if  the 'tingles' Obama was sending up this media moron's leg affected his brain.

Barky's Speech

Barack Hussein Obama gave a much-anticipated speech last night regarding the war in Afghanistan and our troops.

We waited over 3 months for it.

The words "I" and "me" were notably present and noticeably emphasized.

The words "win" and "victory" were nowhere to be heard.
