President Feckless

There has been much talk lately about our President being Feckless.

I cannot stand idly by and allow such charges to go unchallenged!

Our President deserves the respect he has earned and I’m here to offer a defense in his absence.

President Obama is quite an accomplished Fecker.

He has employed his talent to Feck up:

The Middle East – on Fecking fire.

The Economy – Completely Fecked.

Our Health Care – Fecked and getting even more Fecked.

The Free Market – Fecked-Up Beyond All Recognition.

He continues to Feck with our personal liberty, our freedom and our property rights.

Frankly, he came into office promising to Feck-up everything in his “Blue print for America” and he has accomplished many of his Fecking goals.

So anyone accusing him of being Feckless is simply wrong, he has Fecked-up almost everything.

I think he has done a fantastic job Fecking everyone.

And, I don’t know about you but I feel like I’ve been Fecked enough by the President.

But I guess there are still folks out there who need some more Fecking…  (They’ll be voting for Bill’s wife.)

(It’s been a while since this post, but apparently someone broke out their thesaurus again…  so I couldn’t resist… again… and again.)


“Send Them Your Heads!”

Seeing a Clear Need for a new, more nuanced, Radical Muslim Outreach Campaign, the Obama Administration will be offering a way for the American Public to get behind efforts already being employed.

What will be considered a supplement to Destroying our relationship with Israel, Arming ISIS with Stinger missiles, staying out of ISIS’ way in Middle East and promising a Nuclear Iran, The Obama Administration is crafting a new program called “Send Them Your Heads!”.

The motivation behind this latest taxpayer-funded Muslim Outreach Effort is to allow ISIS, and all of their affiliates, time to work on issues State Department officials deem important in the Middle East like physical, educational and political infrastructure improvements as well as Job Creation. It has been estimated, by all economists everywhere, a Single Minute saved by not having to Set on Fire, Throw off buildings, Stone and Behead Infidels results in a Full Hour of productivity that can be applied to ‘other things’.

If you’re interested in participating in this Outreach Campaign, please contact your local Post Master for packaging and shipping details. (Cost may vary depending on size, weight and distance to recipient.  DHS has also advised participants that having a partner to assist you will be important, and if you cannot find assistance in completing the process they, DHS personnel, will be happy to help.  DHS officials also stated that there is no need to wait for the Administration to get this program approved, and funded, as they expect resistance from the Republican Controlled ‘Do Nothing’ Congress. They have some shipping materials available and will provide them at no cost to qualified applicants.)

According to the issued Press Release, The White House is proud to be promoting the new initiative with the blessings of domestic Muslim advocacy groups in addition to representatives from ISIS, ISIL, IS, Al Qaeda and a number of Iraqi and Syrian ‘community’ organizations among the other Partners in Peace Coalition.

The release also states “Send Them Your Heads!” will be exclusively administered by the Department of Homeland Security and The United States Post Office and will be limited to Legal U.S. citizens only.

When we contacted DHS officials for comment, it was stressed the overall message they wanted to convey is the “Importance of Getting along with those who are different from us. We are all citizens of the World.”

In response to our e-mail inquiry, Postal Representatives claimed to have no knowledge of this new program but stated the importance of following shipping guidelines for human remains.  They said they would prefer packing to be complete prior to participants reaching the postal centers, and guidelines were available at USPS.com for download.

So if you’re one of us, asking yourself “What Can I Do to Make them Like Me?”

Now there’s a way.

(Note: One of the economists we spoke with explained the added benefit to the U.S. unemployment number that will be realized by tangibly removing individuals from the work force. Administration officials declined to comment only giving us a ‘thumbs up’ while holding a poorly drawn sign which stated “#Sendthemyourhead”.)

Obama Got Osama… So What?

It really doesn’t matter.

My belief is that the Bush Administration knew where Osama Bin Ladin was for a number of years and intentionally didn’t kill him.

I believe this was confirmed when it was leaked that the NSA was monitoring his phone calls. Many years later, most of us understand that if we can monitor your phone calls we know where your phone… is.
I, along with Sec. State Rice, thought it was a crime to have leaked such information as monitoring Osama’s phone led to an incredible amount of extremely valuable intelligence. But I was unaware that such a leak did not reach the bar determining a “crime”, unlike Navy-SEAL Bisonette disclosing in his book “No Easy Day” who shot Osama and when he did it.  It’s worth noting, Leon Panetta sees clearly this man needs to be crucified (alas, we would have to send him to the Middle East for this punishment) at the moment of this typing.

Enter Mike as the Bush apologist… (Don’t get used to this.)
My feeling that it was OK to leave Osama Bin Ladin alive (at that moment) was also related to my belief that the Left was hoping he would turn up dead so they could begin berating the Bush Administration for perpetuating another “unnecessary” war. (Note that any war not being conducted under a Leftist Administration is “unnecessary”)  This type of “good when I do it, bad when you do it” politics only seems to manifest itself on one side of the aisle.  But that’s another post.

Well, now Osama is dead… So What?

At this very second the U.S. Embassy in Yemen has been attacked.  Keeping score?  That’s Libya, Egypt and Yemen.  (Update, Add: Oman, Iraq, Tunisia, Algeria)(Update, Add: Sudan, Pakistan)(Update, Add: Bangladesh, Berlin, London, Sudan, Yemen again…)

Secretary Clinton is in Morocco… the presser was more of a begging apology than a stance against violence.  It’s my biased observation that the State Department is concerned “in the strongest terms”.  That’s “scared” to you and me.  This is the fundamental problem we have in the world.  We have Leftists faced with fighting Leftists.  All our home-grown Leftists can do is condemn the violence… but not the ideology.

We, the U.S., are fighting a war against Statism. (At home and Abroad) In this specific case of the Middle East it’s a variant of Socialism known as Theocracy. The Theocrats wish to establish a “Caliphate” made up of the entire Middle East.  The leaders of this movement want to create an exclusively Muslim area intended to include Israel.  Not sure how that would work?  Neither are the Jews.

You might be saying to yourself… “Wow, that kinda seems like a bad idea.”
Indeed.  But our current Administration cannot allow us to pass judgements on Theocracies versus other ideologies such as their personal brand of Socialism because the similarities would be difficult to ignore.  (The only difference between the two Governing Theories is Theocrats switch out the top of the pyramid from “The State” to “A Deity of Choice”.  That’s it.  All else remains, structurally, the same.)

The connection the Left does not want you to make is that Socialism, and all of its variants, are the root of all evil. It’s exactly this ideology and its brethren that demonize the individual and view life as expendable to the greater good of the state and/or religion.  (There is nothing new about Religious States.  Catholicism had a solid run if you recall.)

So, in this War on Terror 2.0 the Obama Administration is personalizing it.  (I think their rhetoric throughout both Bush Administration’s pushed them into a corner on this to some degree.  They have graduated from Clinton’s “Tomahawk Diplomacy” to Obama’s “Drone Diplomacy”.  The Left likes killing people, just not up close and personal.)

They have attempted to “keep it personal” by pinning all evil on Osama Bin Ladin and lately Al Qaeda.  Sec. State Clinton’s thesis subject, Saul Alinsky, wrote about this approach in the book Rules for Radicals if you have one lying around.  “Personalize it.”  Never get in a debate regarding ideology or theory… (If you’re any kind of Socialist, you will lose. My words, not his.)

Well, clearly Osama Bin Ladin was not the root of all evil, he was merely a symptom.  The fact that we are still killing “leaders” of Al Qaeda we’ve never heard of before should legitimize my point.  (Update: IS, ISIL, ISIS, DAESH)

What the Administration is trying to ignore, deny, obfuscate, is that we are fighting a war against an Idea not a human being.  We are fighting a war against an ideology that shares many, if not most, of the societal ideals our current Leftist leaders here in the U.S. promote.  We are not fighting a war against any specific person… remember, people are expendable and can be quickly replaced by the closest fellow traveler.  The Muslim Brotherhood understands that theirs is a Mission of Ideology… a Mission of Faith… a Mission of Social Justice.  They must find the Great Satan’s attempt to define them differently as hypocritical and juvenile at best.

This is a very important time in our history, a turning point if you will.  (Domestically and Abroad)  It is a time that must be clearly thought about by every U.S. Citizen.  What happens in the next ten years will determine the quality of life our children will experience through their old age.  The definitions of Freedom and Liberty are being challenged globally by those wielding ideas… very, very bad ideas.

No one wants to live thinking they and their loved ones are, or will be, in imminent danger.

But there is a valuable lesson here…

What it is and what we wish it to be are most often at odds.

Democracy Kills.

Stop It! Stop It! Stop It!

Stop talking about “Democracy” as if it’s a good thing!

While this is a sin committed by seemingly everyone, it struck me after listening yet again to the President and the Secretary of State speak glowingly about Democracy being introduced to the Middle East (Which is melting down), and the resulting democratically elected leaders that we MUST deal with, it occurred to me that they were playing on the ignorance of the American people… yet again.

This is not splitting hairs… this matters and we all need to understand it.  Democracy is horrible.

Historically, when Democracy is present, populations (almost without fail) vote themselves into tyranny.  In other words they ask to be taken care of, and they get taken care of… just not the way they wanted.  Every Socialist Dictator claims to be, and most often has been, at some point “Democratically elected”…

Do you really want to help countries enjoy what we enjoy here is the United States?

Here are the ingredients, all of which are poisonous on their own;

A Judiciary, by itself is a collection of “priests” passing edicts upon the population by fiat.

A Congress, by itself is a tribal meeting of elites fighting for and protecting their personal interests.

An Executive, by himself is a dictator.

What is required to establish a Free Country is a mix of the above…

A recipe, or better yet, a Constitution specifically defining the checks and balances of each branch and limiting government to very specific responsibilities to protect the Individual and his property rights.  (Unenforced, is a “living, breathing” piece of paper and nothing more.)

Elections without ALL of the above, is Democracy.  Democracy, by itself is simply “legitimized” mob rule.  This is what is being promoted by the Progressive Left.

But combine the above with Free-Market Capitalism protected by Individual Property Rights and now you have a recipe for greatness.  You have what the United States should be…

However,

Democracy on its own… you have what is today the Middle East.  A region on Fire and Falling into Theocratic Oblivion.

The goal should never be “Democracy”.  And, contrary to what generations of poorly educated public school teachers think (and apparently the Obama Administration as well), we do not live in a Democracy.  The United states is the product of a finely tuned mixture of all the above.  We should know this, and understand it.  Democracy is only one part of a beautiful formula making our country unique from the rest of the world.  Now is the opportunity to contrast what we have, and why we have it, against a tapestry of violence and destruction.  If today’s examples are not good enough then let’s go back a little ways.  Lenin wrote profusely regarding “Democratic Socialism” and his wish for “Democracy” leading to the dictatorship by the Proletariat.  Mao added a class and proposed roughly the same thing.  The Socialists have always viewed direct “Democracy” as integral to their achieving their goals.  I could list a number of prominent Social Elitists who killed their own citizens in the name of Social Utopia, but for this post those two should suffice.

In case you didn’t know;

We proudly (most of us proudly…) live in a Democratic Republic… “if we can keep it.”

We work very hard at maintaining the integrity of our elections.  (Or at least we should.  The lack of prosecutions for election fraud is deplorable.  ref: Preserving My Right to Cheat.)  We also have checks and balances at every level of our local, state and Federal government with the hope we can keep it.

To make this simple, understand the words you use.  When you do, you’ll understand what others are saying to you.  And you’ll learn quickly that some things you think are “good” are actually “evil”.  (Like decaf coffee… who drinks this?  Do the same people drink non-alcoholic Beer?  What’s next, non-alcoholic Bourbon? Clearly there is evil in the world.)

If Not Now, When?

(From the very week it happened… 091612)

As I sat and watched a Fox News interview with Ambassador to the Untied Nations Dr. Susan Rice, I had a serious Obama 2008 campaign flashback.  A serious flashback.  I have to blame it on the brown acid.

Dr. Susan Rice stated, unequivocally, that the relationship between Israel and the United States “had never been stronger”…  Never.

This is when everything got too colorful and the fern in the corner began to chant… “if not now, when?”  It was the same collective chant of Obama voters from his inauguration.

Pulling myself together, I thought about what the fern was saying.

So… when?

The follow-up question that was not asked by Chris Wallace was “When has it been weaker Dr. Rice?”

When has the relationship been in a situation that the Muslim Brotherhood is orchestrating a multinational consolidation of Islamo-Fascist Radicals with the ultimate goal of creating their own version of a Sharia based European Union known as a Caliphate? When has the collected enemies of Israel been so numerous, and cooperative, that the ability of her to defend herself was seriously in question?  And when has the U.S. leadership been so overt about making a point to anybody listening that she will stand by and watch when the whole region goes south?

I also thought I heard Dr. Rice say when asked about the consulate security not being increased given the number of threats and actual attacks in Benghazi that “the four men protecting the Ambassador was significant security”. Significant… Four men…  The Benghazi consulate had reportedly suffered five attacks in the recent months. A four-man security team, in Dr. Susan Rice’s assessment  is significant.

The interview should have had a laugh track.

Just to add ignorance to idiocy, she reiterated that the Administration was sure that the extremely well executed attack on the Consulate in Benghazi was not premeditated.  Yes… Clearly.

(In fact, if it was not premeditated… we have a lot more to worry about than we thought.  Chew on this, if an unruly and disparate mob of protesters can throw together a coordinated, seemingly perfect, assault capable of forcing out our Ambassador and subsequently killing him and his “significant” four-man security team then think about what the trained militants can do.  It could be a very long fall.)

The truth is…

The Obama Administration had no idea this was coming.  They were pleased with themselves for introducing legalized mob rule… sorry… Democracy to the Middle East.  They had moved on and were gearing up to “solve” the Chicago teachers strike and look “tough on Unions”.  (Unfortunately, for the Obama Campaign, there is no oxygen left in the room for that charade.)

To sum it up, I’ll remind you that this is the same Administration that was going to “solve” all of our problems in the Middle East because they weren’t “cowboys” and were smarter than everybody else… no more burning of American flags, no more stamping on pictures of the President, no more chanting “Death to America”.  Well… surprise.  They hate us regardless of who’s in office.  We told them that decades ago.  (The same crap was spouted prior to Clinton’s election.)

So it seems they had their eye on the re-election ball combined with an extra dose of Fatal Conceit.

I’ll enjoy watching the tracers of these people leaving office.  The fern says “It’s been a long strange trip…”

Why is my beer blue?


“that’s not what we came for, to kill other Muslim’s.”

This was our President today, at The House Summit to Counter Violent Extremism, quoting an unnamed voice that according to him “Must be amplified”.

Mr. President, Whom exactly, if not Muslim’s, did they come to kill?

Why would we amplify a voice that draws a distinction between who should be killed and who should not?

It was clear this morning that your event closing speech was uncomfortable… but not in the way most of us would desire. The level of angst as you listed the groups who were committing atrocities made you appear to be sucking on lemons. you didn’t appear Angry… or sad… instead it looked like you were a school kid being forced to apologize for something you’re not sorry for. You looked as if you were being forced by some Adult to give the first part of this speech, and you were not happy about it.

I suspect there was, and is, some infighting occurring between you and your party.

While I will always disagree with the ideological foundation of your friends and associates, I think even they must be asking…

… Why would we amplify voices that see nuance when it comes to whom to kill.  Non-Muslim Good… Muslim, well… that’s just to far.

Why are we hiding behind ‘nuance’ at all?

What World do you live in?

What are you Doing?


American Psychopath

Or

‘One Man’s Terrorist is Another Man’s Freedom Fighter.’

A couple of weeks ago Bill Maher chimed in on the Movie American Sniper and it’s box office success. For many on the Left, including our strangely resident Fat Canadian Communist Michael Moore as Well as Bill Maher, the Mass Approval of this movie is like a bullet to the head. The idea Americans would embrace what they would consider a glorification of killing innocents under the invasion of a country is beyond them.

The popularity of this film is clear to me however.

There is a phenomena which exists when you tell the citizens of a country that they are the center of all evil long enough they grow weary of the accusation. They seek out validation that they are not horrible and their behavior does not condone the control and correction from above. They react in exactly the opposite way their rulers wish them to. Particularly when the objective evidence is out there for all to see.

The American People are tired of being made to feel bad about believing in Freedom and Liberty. They are tired of being punished for trying to be successful. They are tired of being told that all the brilliant Schemes forced upon them perpetually fail because THEY are not exuberantly embracing them.

But then, as if to insult each and every one of us, the Liberals offer up a crass cliché of moral relativism.

‘One Man’s Terrorist is another Man’s Freedom Fighter.’

This attempt at reason is so insipid as to make one’s head hurt when reading it.

And, it’s being offered up in reference to Chris Kyle as well as what is happening in the Middle East in general.

So here’s a few highlights of what’s happening in the Middle East just so we are all on the same page…

ISIS Burns Jordanian Pilot to Death in a Cage

ISIS Stones women to Death

ISIS Throws Gay Man, strapped to a chair, from the top of a Building.  When he is found to not be dead they Stone him to Death on the street.

ISIS executes 250 Syrian Soldiers before burying them in a Mass Grave.

ISIS conducts Mass Beheadings  (It’s easier than Ovens)

Allow me to ask…

exactly WHOSE Freedom are these A-Holes Fighting for?

Chris Kyle is no Saint.  But to the men he saved from being killed, and the locals he may have saved from the types of atrocities listed above to the drilling of holes in children’s heads just to make a point… he’s very close.

And every time someone pukes up the idea that a Man doing his job to protect American’s is a Psychopath they should first suffer an open-handed slap across the face and then receive a one way ticket to ISIS-ville so they can work on their semantics.

Unless ISIS suddenly begins championing Freedom and Liberty for ALL INDIVIDUALS regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation etc.  There can NEVER…  NEVER be any Moral Relativity.

These A-holes are terrorists pure and simple.

Our fighting Men are there to promote the very Freedoms every Human has a Natural Right to.  While it may be our interests that brought us there… it is Natural Law which justifies our actions while we remain.

The Anti-Capitalist Left would like us to forget, abandon, ignore this simple fact.

Well Tough Sh*t.

For some of Us… Individual Freedom and Liberty, A Constitutionally Limited Government and our right to property is what has made and still makes this Country the Greatest on Earth.

So, for you Progressives out there wondering how such a movie can be so damned successful, it’s because we see nothing wrong with it and a great many things right with it.

No one should sit around wringing their hands in torment about saving lives and killing those who would throw people off buildings, behead them, stone them to death and burn them to death… all in front of the largest audiences possible just to make a point.  Chris Kyle did his job well and had no regrets.  He was no Psychopath, Bill.  Nor was he a Coward, Michael you Fat Slob.

Nor should We feel bad for not wringing our hands after see this movie.

The Rule is those who Employ, or Wish to Employ, Force in order to Oppress are Anti-American, Anti-Freedom, Anti-Individual.  They are Evil.  (The problem is this Axiom hits a little close to home for our own Leftists.)

In War mistakes are made.  But our worst mistakes have little comparison to the Evil which is being fought.  If you haven’t clicked on the links above then you should do so.

So you Liberal Progressive Types,

For one moment… stop Hating America First.  Try to Stop Hating the Individual Rights this country Stands for.  Make an Effort to Understand why we Are Exceptional and why the Majority of the World wants what we have.

Or, just keep being your Crappy Selves as I expect you will.


It’s Everything, Stupid!

James Carville famously stated “It’s the Economy, Stupid!”

He was Hailed at the time by the Press for his Simple Brilliance.  Simple Indeed… like his much ignored by the Anti-War on Women Soldiers “That’s what you get if you drag a $100 bill through a Trailer Park!”

Anyway… that was Clinton and this is Now.  (Well… Clinton is still dragging $100 bills through trailer parks… but I digress.)

Now is the Age of Obama and the Liberal Progressive Renaissance.

With the Awakening of the Socialist Left, it has ceased to be just about the Economy…

It’s now About:

Ebola Killing

NSA Spying

IRS Targeting

DHS Militarizing

EPA Regulating

Islamic State Militants Advance Despite Airstrikes: ‘Most of the eastern and southern parts of the city have fallen under the ISIS control…the situation is getting worse’

ISIS Gains Territory Despite Weeks of Bombing by U.S., Allies, Raising Questions About Strategy

For WSJ, Margaret Coker in Erbil, Iraq, Jay Solomon in Cairo and Tamer El-Ghobashy in Baghdad report: Islamic State militants have gained territory in Iraq and Syria despite weeks of bombing by the U.S. and its allies, raising questions about the coalition’s strategy of trying to blunt the jihadists’ advance while local forces are being trained to meet the threat on the ground.

“The strategy’s biggest weakness in Iraq, officials there say, is the glacial pace of cobbling together an Iraqi political alliance between Sunnis willing to join with the Shiite-controlled central government to rebuild a national military force to fight Islamic State more effectively.”

In Syria, fighters from Islamic State, also known as ISIS, have taken large sections of the city of Kobani in recent days, said Ismet Sheikh Hasan, the defense minister of the city’s…

The Middle East Solution

I propose we solve the Middle East violence through a program of Understanding.

Here in the United States we have an abundance of Well Trained, Amazingly Equipped and Overly Funded Diversity Trainers.  (It’s worth noting that many of these same people are cross-trained in Sexual Harassment Education and Gender Sensitivity Issues.  All Added Value as far as my Proposal is concerned.)

I cannot believe it would take much to initiate a Mission composed of the Majority of these ‘Special Operators’ to head over to Syria and Iraq to impose Mandatory Diversity Training.  We can even make sure they wear comfortable shoes so they don’t challenge the President’s ‘No Boots on the Ground’ edict.

Finally, Taxpayer Dollars well spent.

And, Once all sides understand the Value of Diversity… Problem Solved… Forever.

Peace will be experienced throughout the land.

(There could be an obvious upside for those of us here in the U.S. if it doesn’t work out… but I’ll leave that for you guys to figure out.)

There is No Time to Waste.

Isn’t it worth the Life of a Child?

So let’s get started!
