- The real winner in Iraq may not be Al Qaeda, but Iran. Ir may just be Jihadist gossip, but ISIS appears to have an interesting working relationship with Assad and now Maliki behind the scenes, despite trying to massacre Shiites. The ISIS assault may be what Iran needs to turn Iraq into a puppet.
- I don't want to dampen any of the Brat celebrations, but that MSNBC interview gave me a Doug Hoffman vibe. Hopefully that's not the case and his district is conservative. As much as I like to see Tea Party candidates beat the establishment GOP, I would like to see them beat the Dems even more.
- I'm not celebrating the Rivlin win in Israel either. Rivlin is being described as a hard-liner and he is, compared to Peres, but he's also often unpredictably liberal. He's a wild card and he's certain to continue the politicization of the presidency and I suspect he'll speak out more from the left...
I hope I'm wrong.
THE KKK: A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF DEES INC.
Two years ago the Southern Poverty Law Center named me, a bar sign and a brand of gun lubricant as hate groups. It wasnt the punch line to a joke about a Minister, a Rabbi and a Priest. Instead it was another tribute to the research skills of the countrys wealthiest, dumbest and laziest civil rights group.
Morris Dees began in the mail order business and ended up in the mail order civil rights business. Every month elderly retirees receive envelopes covered with pictures of Klansmen burning crosses. Those photos are the SPLC brand the way that the swoosh is for Nike and I wouldnt be surprised to hear that Dees had already trademarked the KKK.
Before heading to a Laguna Beach fundraiser, where 25 supporters paid $32,400 for a shot at him, Obama said, We will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq, but I have asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces and Ill be reviewing those options in the days ahead.
Sure. Hes been saying that ever since the crisis began. Heres a nutty idea, maybe he should have been on top of this from the beginning instead of treating it like extra work.
And maybe he can skip the fundraiser when a major terrorist group is taking over entire cities. But he didnt do it for Benghazi. Why would he do it here.
Like a lot of anti-American types, Bergdahl appeared to be fond of Putins RT, Michael Scheuer, Ron Paul and Glenn Greenwald.
Bergdahl favorited an RT propaganda video, Americans dont share global domination policies of their leaders
He favorited a video called, Drone Survivors Speak at Congressional Briefing Called by Rep. Grayson.
Other videos he favorited included Afghanistan veterans commit suicide from a good conscience, The real terrorist was me US Soldier and KILL EVERYBODY: American soldier exposes US policy in Iraq.
He subscribed to TruthaboutTaliban whose video states We can see how does Taliban treats the captive US soldier.After you see this video,You must question yourself Are Taliban the real terrorists ? or the US.
"Basically, the Kochtopus is spending millions and millions of dollars, placing college professors in economics departments across the country, so that they can promote Ayn Rand and the libertarian philosophy to future generations of Americans."
Kochtopus. Its the only aquatic creature more than terrifying than the Sorosfish or the Steyerosaurus.
And this is the lead story on Alter-Net which is financed by the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Ford Foundation.
Or as its known, the Fordtopus.
In an interview that will air tonight, Hillary Clinton will tell Diane Sawyer that the Benghazi terrorist attack that left four Americans dead is more of a reason to run for president of the United States.
Actually, its more of a reason to run, because I do not believe our great country should be playing minor league ball. We ought to be in the majors, Clinton tells Sawyer. I view this as really apart from even a diversion from the hard work that the Congress should be doing about the problems facing our country and the world.
Does Hillary Clinton think Benghazi is minor league? Whats her idea of major league? Another September 11 on her watch?
Would nuking a US city finally put us in the majors.
The last point Ill make whats happened over the last couple of days I think underscores the importance of the point that I made at my West Point speech: the need for us to have a more robust regional approach to partnering and training partner countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa."
1. Obama keeps insisting that counterterrorism partnerships are some magical new idea that he came up last week which Congress hates.
2. Hes using the collapse of a military we trained to argue that relying on foreign armies that we train is the way to go.
After years of ignoring Al Qaeda in Iraq, its takeover of entire cities is proof that Obama was right all along to ignore it.
Melissa Mark-Viverito is a class warrior who owns $1.5 million in land back in Puerto Rico. She is a top public official in one of the biggest cities in the United States and also a Puerto Rican separatist who refused to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
The Puerto Rican Nationalist Party was responsible for numerous acts of violence including the attempted assassination of President Truman and an armed attack on Congress. (The surviving perpetrators of both attacks were pardoned by Jimmy Carter.) The latter terrorist attack had been carried out in the name of our apostle of independence, Don Pedro Albizu y Campos.
FALN was a Marxist terrorist group whose goal was to direct an armed and political struggle in accordance with the Marxist-Leninist principle and to implement the Stalinist ideological position concerning the concept of nation to the North-American context.
More than half the members of the City Council have fired off a letter to Walmart demanding that it stop making millions in charitable contributions to local groups here.
Stop spending your dangerous dollars in our city, the testy letter demands. Thats right: this is a cease-and-desist letter.
But Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito called the donations toxic money, and accused Walmart of waging a cynical public-relations campaign that disguises Walmarts backwards anti-job agenda.
City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito owns properties worth well over $1 million.
Joel Berg, who heads the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, which this year collected $800,000 from Walmart the coalitions single largest private donation said he had no intention of giving the money back.
Hillary already pulled this routine when she ran for the Senate in New York. Then she became the Secretary of State and tossed it overboard. Now shes born again pro-Israel and no longer thinks Israeli houses are the devil.
Also shes got big plans for letting you have the Brooklyn Bridge at a discount price.
Liberals really love minorities. They fought long and hard against Stop and Frisk because even though they are obsessed with gun control, stopping and frisking likely gang members discriminated against minorities. Most shootings in urban areas are gang related. Stop and Frisk was an effective way of keeping gang members from carrying.
It was also racially disproportionate because unfortunately theres a shortage of white Crips in East New York and a shortage of white residents in the areas where most shootings happen.
Stop and Frisk was shut down. The killings started up. Now Judge Shira Scheindlin and the liberal media have the blood of black people on their hands.
To change all that you have to rebuild families and religious institutions. You cant fix all this with wraparound services to encourage parenting skills. Thats Michelle Obamaspeak.
The nanny state has been encouraging parenting skills forever. It doesnt work.
To parent, you have to have a sense of responsibility. If youre an adult, trying to teach you a sense of responsibility by giving you courses doesnt work. Treating someone like a child to make them act like an adult is a dead end.
You cant use the nanny state to heal people who are morally and socially crippled by it.
Are you a titan of finance? Do you bundle huge contributions for Obama? Just wait till you hear the news.
Theres a big sale on. Prices are being slashed. Get your ambassadorship to a major European country for 50% off.
Black racism against especially whites is lovingly approved by Kohan in the series. Her own "white guilt" and "white privilege" in the series is frowned upon in no uncertain terms. Vee and her thugs even pick on a helpless inmate who is undergoing chemo therapy because she's white.
In the name of racial "diversity," the inmate cast is almost evenly divided between whites, blacks, and Latinos. There are English subtitles for dialogue between the Latinos. Most of the blacks are trash-talking, ugly, overweight, petulant, and in-your-face aggressive and mean-minded. It can't be that the writer, director, and producer of the series, Jenji Kohan, who herself resembles a cross between an alien from a low-grade science fiction movie and an apprentice clown, is waging a campaign to eradicate black stereotypes. The racism of her black and Latino characters is almost palpable.
The question is whether Obama, given his Muslim roots and experience in Farrakhans Chicago, shares this antipathy for Israel and Jewish people. Is there any evidence that he does? First, the President was taught for twenty years by a virulent anti-Semite, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. In the black community it is called sitting under. You dont merely attend a church, you sit under a Pastor to be taught and mentored by him. Obama sat under Wright for a very long time. He was comfortable enough with Farrakhan Wrights friend to attend and help organize his Million Man March. I was on C-Span the morning of the march arguing that we must never legitimize a racist and anti-Semite, no matter what good he claims to be doing. Yet a future President was in the crowd giving Farrakhan his enthusiastic support.
