Good morning, Alas!
By the grace of God and the actions of a brave young man, the lives of nearly 300 people were spared.
Looks like we scored almost 20% conservatives with Newt and peter king on board,big week for us(sarc)
Lots to cover this week including the bigger story of the "firecracker" DBM story which was gotten correct here on FR as usual. And, how will this terrorist be tried? As an enemy combatant which is what he is, or just a poor kid from the slums of Yemen or what ever terror hole he is from.
its all ahead,stay tuned.
Good morning, Alas!
I look forward to hearing Napolitano attempt to convince us this terrorism was stopped by our crack security.
As someone said to me after January 20, “We’re on our own, now.”
That “poor kid” was an engineering student who lived in a $6 million apartment in Mayfair.
My daughter got me an autographed copy of Going Rogue singed by Sarah herself with photos of her signing the book!! More than I could ever have hoped for.(Plus I am now wearing my "official" Palin 2012 tee as well)
What a cool present! Your daughter really went out of her way to do something nice for you!
My suspicions are that we will hear few details from the DBM about just who this brainwashed terrorist is, as it will probably reflect poorly on the Dear One.
mccain couldn’t get on anywhere this week? wow
Oh my gosh, rodguy, you hit the jackpot. What a great daughter you have!
Dang! I also got the book for Christmas but it’s not signed.... YET!
Govs. Mitch Daniels, R-Ind
This guy is a guy to watch. He will eat the Dems alive.
My worst fears for my kids and others who will take our places are that we will be leaving behind an untenable future for them. The stakes are high for the country and it's future getting higher each and every day.
Jim DeMint, too!
Chris Wallace on Fox and Friends right now saying that there are 1/2 million on the watch list and we can’t go over that list every time a plane loads.
Now he is pointing out that they didn’t act on the additional info, although he is muddling this by not saying exactly what the additional info.
Fox guy asks about the 3-hour delay in informing Obama. Wallace asks what he could do.
Pffft. Wallace is blaming underlings and saying you really can’t blame Obama. Now talking about how he had a visa for over 2 years (blame Bush) and completely AVOIDING the fact that HIS FATHER TURNED HIM IN TO THE US EMBASSY A MONTH AGO!!!
You lucky dog! Stood in line, in the rain and cold of Orlando, and was unable to make the final cut to get into the signing. Partied hardy with fellow Freepers afterward, so not all was lost. Belated Merry Christmas!
Problem is if they are successful will it all be taxed away to pay for the unending spending of the left that jeopardizes eveyone's future and the existence of our nation.
I heard Wallace. He’s still bowing at the altar of Bowrama!
I understand perfectly the bleak future that is possible for our children if we are not successful in fighting this off. We must do all that we can.
Looks like Gibbs drew the short straw for staying in DC while everyone else in the Administration headed for holiday relaxation. Why would anyone want to hear a word that he utters? Lies, lies, lies.
Watch for the White House-controlled national media,
reading off the White House-supplied sheets, to
substitute the word ______ scare, rather than attack
when describing the Islamonazi terrorist attack
on a loaded airplane.
Well, what I am watching is that this is being called terrorism because it was unsuccessful.
Also watching how the officials are trying to associate themselves with the Dutch guy saving the day, even though they had NOTHING to do with stopping it.
Of course it will never be the fault of the Barksy adm. since they never make mistakes.I am just wondering how it will be spun to be Gw's fault? Have not figured that one out yet. But I am sure its coming our way.
Humble, funny,from the South,Georgia, but wound up Indiana Governor.
He did a short presentation at a basketball function and pointed out how basket ball is the great equalizer. Everyone on the court is the same regardless of who your are.
He says that's how the state of Indiana should be;
...a kid from anywhere can go to the top...and that's how we need to be...in Indiana
really an impressive, down to earth guy,could really have a future.
Oh, I have already figured that out, rodguy. The following memes have surfaced this morning.
1. Guy got a visa two years ago. (Ignore his father turning him in a month ago.)
2. He has been on the watch list for some time. (Bush should have spotted him.)
I have no doubt they will try to spin this as Bush’s fault. Of course, it could be that Obama wants to get rid of Hillary, in which case the US embassy in Nigeria will be shown to have been the culprit, and by default, the Secretary of State for poor management of her subordinates.
You just described activism and its finest hour and what we all should be doing. Hope your Christmas went well and have a great New Year.
Computers can instantaneously change a Visa Card account for even the tiniest purchases. This happens millions of times a day. The US Government chooses not to use the power of computers for things like knowing who enters and leaves our country. They don't like things that catch everyone equally since that takes away their power to pass out favors to their preferred people. Where are the statesmen? sigh
Mitch Daniels is an excellent governor. (I am from Indiana.)
He has already said that when he finishes his second term, he is done with running for office.
It’s a shame because he is really funny in a dry way, and is an absolute genius in budgets. (Known as The Blade when he was Bush’s Budget Director.)
My guess is the people on here will make the difference as always. Detecting the lies of the left and correcting them with truth is probably more important in the life of our nation than ever.
Oh, I agree. I was just reporting what Wallace said.
It was amazing watching him blather around the subject in order to avoid pointing out how incompetent the Obama Administration is.
Here’s a hint, rodguy, from a British paper’s website:
Prime Minister Gordon Brown faces tough questioning on how and why a man on a US list of terror suspects was able to study for three years here, then continue to live in London. Mr Brown last night vowed to take whatever action was necessary to protect passengers.
You see how the timeline of when he was recognized to be radical has blurred back to three years ago.
Problem for them(the leftists) is it happened under their watch! No way to spin out of that. Either their guys caught this clown/wannabe terrorist or didn't. And obviously they didn't.
The problem we all need to be aware of is that the left often uses events like this to erode even more of our freedoms. I doubt this will be any different.
You have to wonder sometimes how many great conservatives there are out there who simply will not put up with all the BS one has to encounter in modern govt.
Hey! Ask your daughter if she wants a second dad? I’m available for the right price. < laughing >
Perhaps the message that the terrorist watchlist contains five hundred thousand names will get the attention of some more Americans, who will then try to hold our ‘representatives’ in DC to account for their lack of seriousness in how our agencies are approaching this mortal threat.
PS: I hope that Abdulmuwhatever enjoys ‘torture’. He might have a lot of intel to impart.
Said he spoke to Senator Nelson of Florida (his state) about this and Nelson said "It is our hope you would continue to provide coverage."
He thinks that the government knows most businesses would be in the same situation he is and that this is a Machiavellian effort to move people to single payer.
Don’t you think Obamao’s speech to the nation following the failed attack was the best speech of his presidency?
He gave us so much hope for change. Hoping that there will be no further attacks on America by the peaceful muslims of the world.
He promised to change the mindset of the islamic jihadis and he will continue working on that mission.
Perp charges read to him. He is “feeling better than he did yesterday.”
Maybe Gibbs is the one who is in charge of the teleprompter and that explains why Obamao hasn’t come out to speak to the nation.
No teleprompter,no speech.
I thought I had missed something this morning. (Need more coffee.)
Morgan, you are shameless!!! LOL............just when I was going to ask her to get me a book.......you horn in!!!
Fox News Channel just had an interview with a business owner who said this current heathcare incarnation is a GUARANTEE to a single payer system.
He said his company averages 2500 with private care CURRENTLY; but with Obamacare he pays a penalty of 750 dollars if he just pays the fine.
Senator Nelson in FL says to him TO HIS FACE, we “HOPE you will do the right thing” keep paying for private care. IOW Senator Nelson has the USSR mentality of obey the drumbeat of the state.
That senator is BEYOND stuck on stupid.
Miss Marple, I was listening to that from the kitchen. Wallace practically turned himself into a pretzel trying to cover for this administration.
One of Obamao’s unnamed aides came out and said that O wasn’t the type to jump in front of a camera.......
when asked why no speech to the nation.
I am still reeling from that blatant bulloney.
No msm asking where’s the president? Why he’s golfing, swimming. He just wants to be left alone to eat his waffles.....you know!
