  • Obama obsessed with his graying hair [due to demands, leaders on the world stage must accept]

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 26, 2015 | Pete Kasperowicz
    President Obama may be going through a minor mid-life crisis, as he's made numerous references to his graying hair over the last few weeks, even at major events with world leaders at the White House. But while Obama has spoken wistfully about the darker hair of his youth, he has also argued that his graying hair is a sign of the experience he's gained as the leader of the free world for the last seven years. Just two days ago, Obama, 54, met with French President Francois Hollande at the White House to discuss joint counterterrorism efforts after the attack...

    Someone gave us this fat ceramic horse and suggested we could sell it on eBay and retire. Well, okay, maybe make a few hundred bucks. As far as I can tell, it's a copy of the style of horse made by a Scandinavian artist named Stig Lindberg. It could be an original, but there are no markings to indicate that. It could also be from the Bling Dynasty, judging by the garish paint job.

    Has anyone else noticed that Obama likes to point his finger straight up when he's talking? And have you noticed all the Muslim terrorists in the news this past week who do the same thing when they're lecturing other people? It seems to be a Muslim cultural thing because aside from Obama there's no other current world leader I can find who does this when lecturing people. However, I did notice that you can find pictures of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, and Manual Noriega frequently making this same gesture when speaking.

His failure to meaningfully fight terrorism is laid bare and Hollande is now struggling in the face of regional elections on December 6th which could see National Front leader Marine Le Pen winning leadership in the northeast of the country and her niece Marion Marechal Le Pen winning leadership in the southeast. The real story of what's really happening when it comes to terrorism comes from the Obama Administration and its Secretary of Defense,...

    Many have remarked on the messed up fonts now appearing in so many posts. This can be avoided, though it is a bit of a bother. These bad fonts stem from cutting and pasting apostrophes (') and quotation marks ("). The marks produced from cutting and pasting these marks has always looked different from those caused by hitting the key on one's keyboard. Up until now, though, when posted they have been turned into apostrophes and quotation marks. That is no longer happening.

    With yesterday's elections, the speculation of voter turnout for 2016 has started. On another thread, a question was posted postulating that election results in certain areas might improve democrat voter turnout. I have been contemplating this and would like feedback on some thoughts and theories. Reagan's landslide came after Carter. Many democrats voted for Reagan because, among other things, Carter was a dissaster by most objective measurements. I knew folks (lifelong democrats) that, to this day, don't want to talk about whether or not they voted for Carter. But a lot of democrats simply didn't show up to vote. Ambivalence...

Whether one be a left wing progressive or a squishy moderate or even a conservative, all seek an existence here in this fallen world apart from a saving relationship to Almighty God which is found in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12, Rom.1:18-32, 10:4).

    The takeaway from the House "Freedom Caucus" (Sarc) meeting with Paul Rino, uh Ryan is that with 2/3 support from those 40 or so members he is over the 218 votes needed to become Speaker of the House. Ryan, with a 58 percent Conservative Review rating (an F rating, no pun intended) looks to be on his way. I have always maintained that 95 percent of House Republicans either fake or repudiate conservatism. That means out of the 247 GOP House members, only 12.35 or five percent really mean it when it comes to conservatism. And it looks like that's...

    The Conservative Party of Canada had known for some time it was in trouble.

The CPC launched a major media campaign during the summer right before the election call at the beginning of August. The message carried by the women who appeared in the commercials was that Justin Trudeau 'just wasn't ready for the job'. Women were being used because the youthful looking Trudeau appealed to women and it was hoped that women's voices would help...

    "We have a problem in this country — it's called Muslims. We know our current president is one. We have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That's my question. When can we get rid of them?" We've all heard the question by now and we all know how Trump is being lambasted for not defending Obama. But if this comment is so bad and so awful then why hasn't the media found this guy and reported on him? Where's his connection to the TEA Party? Isn't that the usual thing these days is they try to connect...
  • Trump Personal Business Distractions

    For weeks I have been wondering why no media reporter, GOP candidate, debate moderator, network political analyst or individual citizen has asked Mr. Trump a very simple and basic question. “Mr. Trump, if you are elected president, who will manage your businesses?” I do not think this is a trivial question.

Now everyone from CNN to Fox News, to Salon, to even Breitbart News agrees that Carly Fiorina walked away with a landslide. Hell, even Cosmopolitan is singing her praises.

    As El Rushbo put it yesterday 'all guns' were 'trained on Trump' last night from the media onslaught to the candidates blasting him on the stage. It was reminiscent of Clint Eastwood in "The Gauntlet" driving the bus through a torrent of bullets and emerging bloodied but still the hero and the winner. The media in its virtual entirety had an agenda driven by its talking points before and after the debate, talking points coming obviously from one source, the Republican Establishment. The spin was all about Carly Fiorina and how good she was going into the debate and how...
