Kids and School Districts Rejecting Michele "Evita" Obama's Crappy School Lunches

School Lunch Czar Michele "Evita Peron" Obama's school lunch menu choices suck. Don't ask me, ask the kids who throw them away and the school districts who are losing their asses on buying food kids won't eat.

Obama Says he will Seek Congressional Approval for Syria Strike

The liberal's dithering idiot president has apparently made a decision on Syria: He's decided to seek congressional approval for military action:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in the Obama administration and on Capitol Hill say President Barack Obama intends to seek congressional approval for action against Syria.

Obama will speak on the developments in Syria from the Rose Garden on Saturday.
The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak ahead of the president
Good luck with this. So he's decided to try to maneuver himself out of the corner he backed himself into by trying to get Congress on board so he can blame them. Or else, he's decided he really doesn't want to bomb Syria and knows Congress won't approve it anyway, so when they turn him down, it'll give him a way out of the mess he's gotten himself into.

At any rate, this whole contorted circle-jerk has proven why you don't want a radical socialist in charge of foreign policy and military affairs. Let's review:

Syrian Kid Calls out Obama the Great and Terrible on Facebook

BREAKING NEWS: The latest in the saga of As the Syrian Attack Turns: Dateline The White House, Washington D.C, 1900 hours 8 minutes Central Daylight Time  8/30/2013: Sources close to the liberal's president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, report that he still has not decided whether or not to carry out the cruise missile attack his administration has gone out of their way to describe in rectal exam detail on every form of electronic and print media imaginable.

Perhaps the most interesting development of note that has happened in this comedy of errors today is that Bashar al-Assad's son has called Obama out on his plans (or lack thereof) to attack his daddy's country. It's bad enough that our allies and enemies alike are dissing us over Obama's public hand-wringing about what to do with the Syrian corner he's backed himself into. But now the liberal's Dear Leader is being called out by an 11-year-old.

British Back Out of Action against Syria -- the Liberal's Incompetent President is on His Own

The British are out of action against Syria. The British Parliament voted Syrian action down just a few hours ago and David Cameron isn't a democratic totalitarian like Barack Hussein Obama -- he admitted defeat and won't pursue military action. This is quite unlike Barry who has had a year since his "red line" comment and has decided he doesn't need the consent of congress to war. The Frenchie Frenchmen are out as well. So this means Barry is going it on his own. Not only is Barry incompetent and over his head, he's a loner on the world stage.

So what is Barry going to do?

The President who Cried Wolf or why you shouldn't Elect a Dithering Fool to be Leader of the Free World

“The U.S. will respond to the use of chemical weapons in Syria but the president has yet to decide what that response will be”

This absurd headline on the Fox Radio 3PM newscast yesterday describes Barack Hussein Obama's position on action (or inaction) in Syria perfectly.

If the truth be told, Barry has done a lot of things when it comes to Syria. he has dithered around, he has trotted key members of his administration out to telegraph exactly what he plans to do to Syria should he decide to do anything, he has told us that whatever he decides to do, it won't include removing Assad. In other words what he will decide to do if he decides to do anything will probably be to lob a few cruise missiles apparently without the consent of congress, accomplishing exactly nothing.

Electric Cars Don't Work and Barry doesn't Care

If electric cars actually worked, maybe people would be using the expensive chargers our tax dollars paid to have installed at a local "green" library. But they're not:

It’s supposed to be an Iowa truism that “If you build it, they will come.” But that hasn’t happened yet at an electric vehicle charging station in northwest Des Moines.

About $16,000 was spent to install three ChargePoint units at the environmentally friendly Franklin Avenue Public Library, using a mix of city and state funding and library foundation money. Since the charging units became fully operational in the spring of 2012, they have been plugged into electric cars only 13 times — generating a dollar of revenue with each use.

Des Moines Public Library Director Greg Heid is undeterred by the $13 return on investment thus far. “I think this will be taking off as electric cars catch on and as people see this as an alternative,” he says.

Of course the commie lib director of the Des Moines Public Library can't be deterred by the actual facts. After all, the prevailing wisdom behind commie libs such as this guy and Barack Hussein Obama, who is constantly pushing these failed technologies, is that if they force this stuff down our throats eventually we'll all choke it down.And if we don't, they'll mandate it.

Until then, electric cars will continue to sell like hot steaming piles of dog crap. That is to say NOT! Which is why Nissan is trying to get rid of their inventory of their "green" car the Leaf. "Find Huge Markdowns to move LEAF Inventory". If these things were that great, they wouldn't have to "move" them, they would "move" themselves. But they're pieces of crap and pieces of crap don't move very well.

Colin Powell Toes the Commie Lib Line on Voter ID

Colin Powell just can't seem to shut up. This time he's flapping his gums on voter ID laws:

So let me get this right, Colin, as the Young Conservatives point out, there are 24-plus things that you must have a photo ID to do, none of them nearly as important as exercising your franchise rights as an American citizen. Yet, having to produce ID at the polls disenfranchises minorities? 

Tell me, Mr. Powell, would having voter ID laws have prevented you from voting twice for Barack Hussein Obama. If so, I'm all for them!

Where Does Paula Deen Go to get Her Reputation Back?

You may have missed this story this weekend what with all the important news about the new Washington D.C. panda baby and all, but the harassment lawsuit that led to the ruin of Paula Deen's career has been dismissed without prejudice meaning it can't be re-filed:

According to court documents filed in Savannah, Ga., all claims against the TV chef have been dismissed in the suit brought by former restaurant manager Lisa Jackson, with no award of costs or fees to any party. Jackson had sued on the grounds that the work environment at Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House, owned by Deen and her brother, subjected employees to sexual harassment and racial discrimination.
The news comes two weeks after a federal judge threw out the lawsuit's race discrimination claims, stating that though others may have faced that discrimination in the restaurant, Jackson could not sue since she was not one of the victims. Friday's agreement was filed with prejudice, which means Jackson cannot refile the lawsuit.
You see, if you're successful and you don't fit the liberal media's template of someone who should deserve success, they will jump at any tiny opportunity to destroy you. That's why they pounced the admission by Deen that she said the N-word a quarter of a century ago and ripped her and her career apart. The Food Network, in full-on grovelling PC mode, dropped Deen like the proverbial hot potato as a result of the apparently baseless allegations contained in this lawsuit. It's hard to calculate the damage to Deen's reputation and earning potential caused by this rush to judgement.

On the other hand, if you are successful and you are a reliable commie lib like Alec Baldwin you can verbally abuse your young daughter, slander gays because they print misinformation about you wife and just generally be a distasteful human being and the money from a successful TV series and all those Capital One commercials just keeps rolling in. If you're David Letterman and Bill Clinton you can treat women horribly and your careers thrive. The examples go on and on. It's not fair and there's not a damn thing we can do about it except to point out the hypocrisy when it occurs.

Let's hope Ms. Deen re-gains her reputation and goes on to fabulous success in her renewed career.

Erasing the Syrian "Red Line"

Remember when the the spectacle of Bashar al-Assad gassing his citizens was a "red line" that would prompt unilateral action from the U.S. Never mind:

Well forget about the red line. now all we get is a the garbled load of crap you see above -- this is certainly a grave situation, we are monitoring it closely, we need to have the blessing of the United Nations, we need to assemble a coalition of allies, blah de blah de frickin' blah. In other words those Navy ships waiting for his decision are going to be waiting until hell freezes over and beyond because Barry can't depart from his ideology long enough to put his big boy pants on and be the leader of the free world.

The See No Evil Obama Administration -- Spokesman Josh Earnest Claims to not Know About Chris Lane

When it comes to Black kids slaughtering White kids Obama's mouthpiece hasn't a clue -- yeah right!:

Let me get this straight: The senseless slaughter of Chris Lane has been huge news for the last two days and Barry's administration hasn't heard of it?

No need to wonder what the job description of the Obama White House Press Secretary (and his Deputies) looks like: Ability to tell audacious and bald-faced lies and expect Americans to believe you. No conscious required. Must look and act like a little weasel.

Still waiting for Barry to tell us which one of these three thugs "looks like he could be" his son "if he had one". 

BTW -- it took Ed Henry from Fox (as usual) to ask the tough question. Every one of the other lapdogs in the leftist media wouldn't dare touch this one with a ten-foot pole. Don't challenge the Imperial Leader of the leftists.

The $224 Million Obamacare 'Evidenced-Based" Home Visit Program

Your tax dollars at work: A little-known Obamacare program that spends $224 million for "evidenced based home visits" in order "to help parents and children":

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today announced $224 million to help at-risk families voluntarily receive home visits from nurses and social workers to improve maternal and child health, child development, school readiness, economic self-sufficiency, and child abuse prevention.  As part of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program, these grants are funded by the Affordable Care Act and are awarded to state agencies that applied for the grants in 49 states across the country.
“Home visiting programs play a critical role in the nation’s efforts to help children get off to a strong start. Parenting is a tough job, and helping parents succeed pays big dividends in a child’s well-being and healthy development,” said HHS Secretary Sebelius.
As with every government program, this one is couched in the language of good intentions: "We're the government and we're here to help". The key to what's going on with this program is the title of the press release:

Proving the Point on the Red-Light Scameras

Yes, another post on the red-light scams cities run all over the country in the name of "safety". From Simon Conway's Facebook page: The scene this morning at 100th and Hickman, site of one of the Clive scameras erected in the name of "safety":

If you think that what you are seeing here is an accident at an intersection policed by a red-light scamera, you would be correct. Can't tell for sure but it appears that someone was going too fast to try to get past the scamera.

In Iowa, we have relatively few of these scameras. In New Jersey, they are all over the place. And New Jersey folks are a little pissed about the notion the many intersections with traffic scameras have yellow lights that are consistently shorter than the advertised length. Speed up the yellow light, rake in more cash.

Shiftless Joe in 2016 -- Say it ain't so, Joe

Please, God, say it ain't so:
Slowly but surely, step by step, Joe Biden puts himself in position to run for president in 2016.
And while many observers don't believe the vice president will run if Hillary Rodham Clinton does, a new story in The Wall Street Journal may persuade people to rethink that view.
It's official, folks: The only qualifications to be a Democrat presidential candidate are that you either have to be incompetent, corrupt or both.

The Clinton's Money-Losing Charity

The concept of a non-profit charity is pretty simple: The money taken in minus any expenses is given to the charitable cause netting the organization zero profit. Some charities do this very well, operating very frugally and returning the majority of the money donated to the charitable cause. Others not so much. But rarely do non-profit charities run $40 million deficits like the Clinton Global Initiative:

More on the Traffic Scameras

A couple days ago I wrote about the red-light cameras (read scameras) in a little burg in Iowa that was so addicted to the revenue they decided to turn the cameras back on. They did so this morning as a matter of fact. In that piece I opined that study after study have shown that there is no safety benefit to red light cameras at all, and in fact those same studies show that accidents actually increase at intersections where money-grubbing cities run red-light scams. How convenient then, that I can now cite a study from that exact little money-grubbing burg in Iowa:

Algore's Buddies at Aljazeera Start Broadcasting in U.S. Tomorrow

Gas bag who made a huge fortune scaring the crap out of everyone about that scam man-made global warming. Hypocrite who purchased a $9 million home well below where he claims the water line of the California coast will be just 10 years from now? Owner of Current TV, one of the most under-performing networks on cable and satellite television?

Make that former owner. The channel was doing so poorly, Algore ditched it, selling it to the terrorist-sympathizing news network Al Jazeera, giving them a platform to broadcast its terrorist-loving propaganda in the U.S. and making a huge profit on a dog of a television channel (gotta love those commie-libs loyalty to country). Well Al Jazeera is firing up the terrorist-loving news channel in this country tomorrow:

A Lesson in "Red Light" Economics

Coming to a city or town near you (if it hasn't already): Red light scameras:

Clive’s red-light camera program will be cranking out tickets again Monday morning, after the City Council voted to approve a new contract with service provider Redflex Traffic Systems.

Clive City Council members voted 3-2 at their Thursday meeting to approve the agreement. Council members John Edwards, Steve Brody and Ted Weaver supported the item. Votes against were cast by Councilmen Michael McCoy and Eric Klein.

The cameras will be turned back on Monday at 12:01 a.m.
Why will the cameras be turned back on? Well, that gets to the real reason why they were turned on in the first place:

Marco Rubio: Amnesty Stooge, Dupe of the Open Borders Leftists

Marco Rubio can't seem to leave well enough alone. Just as the dust was beginning to settle on the furor over the his amnesty deal -- in which he became the Democrats poster boy for the cause and therefore their stooge -- he has to remind everyone about it all over again:

Sen. Marco Rubio is warning that President Obama may allow many undocumented immigrants to stay in the U.S. by executive action if Congress fails to pass an immigration reform bill.
Rubio (R-Fla.) has remained relatively quiet since he helped pass a major immigration bill through the Senate in June. The legislation would legalize undocumented immigrants in exchange for border security and enforcement provisions.

But now he's reviving a message he has sent to conservatives who have criticized his efforts and don't want to see immigration reform pass: Congress can pass a bill with both border security and legalization, or they can sit on their hands and Obama could offer legal status to undocumented immigrants by himself.

"I believe that this president will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, he will be tempted to issue an executive order as he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen," Rubio said in an interview Tuesday on WFLA Radio's "The Morning Show with Preston Scott."
It's troubling that this young senator who not too long ago showed a lot of maturity and promise would prove to be nothing more than a patsy for the left on one of their biggest pet causes -- open borders and amnesty. If he'll sell out on this issue, what else will he sell out on? What other issues will the leftists be able to confuse and befuddle him on in the future?

RNC Votes to Ban CNN and NBC from Debates for Hillary Movie Plans

It's about time the RINOs grew some balls:

BOSTON-The Republican National Committee passed a resolution today blocking NBC and CNN from partnering with the GOP for any presidential debates during the 2016 primary process because they have not scuttled their pending films on Hillary Clinton.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus wrote Aug. 5 letters to the networks asking them to pull the movies before the vote today or the group would put it to the floor during the RNC's summer meeting here. It passed by a unanimous vote at the meeting today.
In the resolution, the RNC calls the programs "little more than extended commercials promoting former Secretary Clinton" and the "programming decisions are an attempt to show political favoritism and put a thumb on the scales for the next presidential election."
The media is in full Hillary-for-president mode and it's about time someone called them out on. It's also about time the RNC found it's collective testicles and took a firm stand on liberal media bias.

Lord Obama's "Free" School WiFi Plan

Bend over ... again folks: The Barack the Great and Terrible wants to increase your cell phone bill so all the little kiddies can have WiFi in school:

— President Barack Obama unveiled a plan to connect nearly every U.S. classroom to high-speed Internet while speaking at Mooresville Middle School on Thursday.

The plan will expand broadband and wireless access to 99 percent of the country’s schools over the next five years, Obama said. It would use money already budgeted and would not require authorization or approval by Congress.

"In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, why shouldn’t we have it in our schools?" Obama said.

Head EPA Nazi Pays the Iowa State Fair a Visit

The head of the most out of control agency (save the IRS) in the Obama regime paid a visit to the Iowa State Fair this week. Yes, Gina McCarthy, Barry's newly-minted administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, came to the Iowa State Fair yesterday to play kissy-face with the farmers she will soon be stabbing in the back:
President Barack Obama’s top environmental official pledged to build trust with farmers in Iowa and elsewhere who have been roundly critical of federal regulation.
“My commitment to you is that at the end of my term, we will have a stronger, more productive, more trusting relationship between EPA and the agriculture community,” Gina McCarthy, the newly-appointed administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said during a speech in Des Moines today. “Why are we going to do that? It benefits me, it benefits you and it will make this country stronger.”
The Iowa farmers in the audience – including those who have chafed at the thought of regulation of farm dust and youth employment and heavy penalties for farm run-off problems – all applauded her warmly.
“She’s probably the most on-track EPA director we’ve ever talked to,” said Nancy Beyer, a co-owner of Koszta Farm Corp. corn and soybean farm in rural Belle Plaine. “This reception was quite favorable.”

Not so fast, Nancy. You apparently don't understand that this woman is a man-made global warming Nazi (oh, I forgot, it's "climate change" now that the facts don't match their former rhetoric). In fact she's old enough to have been a young Nazi in the made-man global cooling craze of the 1970s.

The NSA Violated OUR Privacy Thousands of Times Last Year

Don't take my word for it, ask the Washington Post, hardly a right-wing news organization:

The National Security Agency has overstepped its authority and broken privacy rules thousands of times every year since being given new surveillance powers by Congress in 2008, The Washington Post reported, citing an internal audit and other secret documents.

The documents, which the Post claims it received earlier this summer from NSA leaker Edward Snowden, detail how the controversial agency has crossed the line many times over in its collection of massive amounts of data from around the world.
Despite repeated claims by officials that the NSA does not spy on Americans, the Post reports that the bulk of the infractions involved improper surveillance of Americans or foreign targets in the U.S. Some of the infractions were inadvertent, caused by typographical errors resulting in U.S. calls or emails being intercepted. Others were more serious.

The Post reported that the most significant violations included the unauthorized use of information on more than 3,000 Americans and green-card holders. In another incident, the Post reported that a “large number” of calls from Washington were intercepted in 2008 after the Washington area code 202 was confused with the code 20, which is the code for dialing to Egypt.

Voter Fraud on Parade

Everyone who's paying attention knows that North Carolina's governor just signed into law common-sense voter fraud protections: 
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory on Monday signed into law changes in how residents can vote that includes requiring them to show a photo ID at polling stations, a move that triggered threats of legal action from the NAACP and other groups.
The American Civil Liberties Union joined two other groups in announcing that they were filing suit against key parts of the package. This came hours after McCrory said in a statement that he had signed the measure, without a ceremony.
The bill shortens the length of that carnival atmosphere time Democrats like to call early voting and requires voters to -- GASP!!!! -- prove they are actually eligible to vote by showing a photo ID. How could anyone object to such common sense measures? Leave it to North Carolina's Democrat senator to make the case for continuing the voter fraud:

How Dare the Subjects Mock the King

A Missouri rodeo clown is banned for life for mocking King Barack Hussein Obama:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike.
The rodeo clown won't be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they're also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday's event.
The entertainment during the bull-riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside. Spectators were asked if they wanted to see "Obama run down by a bull." Many in the audience responded enthusiastically.
Numerous Missouri officials denounced the act after video and photos were posted online. Some Democratic Missouri lawmakers suggested Monday that there should be financial consequences for the fair.
 I know it's been a long time ago -- a whole four and a half years -- but I seem to remember GW Bush being regularly mocked. A couple of hack filmmakers even made movies about assassinating him. Seems to me like Halloween shops used to have entire rows of president masks. Ronald Reagan is STILL the subject of regular mocking by the left today. Even the liberals Patron Saint William Jefferson "I did not have sex with that woman" Clinton was regularly (and rightly) targeted for ridicule.

But don't mock King Barack.

The Imperial President and his Imperial Vacation

How many damn vacations does this family take anyway. But I digress. Let's just talk about THIS lavish vacation:

Talk about disembarking.
The first family’s dog, Bo, reportedly joined the Obamas in style over the weekend for their weeklong vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.
Bo, a Portuguese water dog, hitched a ride on one of two Osprey MV-22 helicopters that landed with various personnel ahead of President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, The Telegraph newspaper in Britain reported.
It was the first time the Ospreys — which take off like helicopters but fly like planes — were used in support of a presidential flight aboard Marine One.
The Obamas are scheduled to stay on the island through next weekend. The president kicked off the trip with a round of golf.
The Obamas are staying at Chilmark, on the western end of the tony Massachusetts island dotted with multimillion-dollar homes, including the vacation home owned by David Schulte at which Mr. Obama is staying. The Chicago specialist in corporate restructurings donated $2,000 to Mr. Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign.
The visit to Mr. Schulte’s home also is inconveniencing Chilmark residents because Mr. Schulte’s $7 million home is much closer to the main public roads than the home the Obamas used for previous Martha’s Vineyard vacations and thus is forcing one to be closed to vehicles.
The Martha’s Vineyard Times said people can expect “extraordinary and lengthy” detours.
“Anyone aggrieved by this closing should email or call the White House,” local officials said in an email to residents.
"Michele, I wonder what the peasants are doing for vacation this year?" 
"I don't know daaaahling, but tell the butler to get me another one of those expensive martinis."

Remember the good ole' days when GW just retired to his ranch for a few weeks a year? Now we have a screw-up in chief who rarely gets out of bed before 8 AM,  plays more golf than any other sitting president before, takes innumerable lavish, taxpayer-funded vacations, and loves to wrap himself in the luxuries of the office not seeming to care at all about appearances. Meanwhile, he loves to make snide comments about the appearance of the lifestyles of Americans who have legitimately earned their luxuries:

In a recent interview with David Blum for Kindle Singles, Blum asks the president about the American dream, saying, "Part of the American dream -- even if you're poor, or lower-middle class -- involves yearning for tangible things you can't afford. Were there things, when you were growing up, that you yearned for that you couldn't afford?"
You mean like a a former nobody community organizer yearning for lavish taxpayer-funded vacations he couldn't otherwise afford? 

"Let them eat cake, Barack: I've got plenty of expensive wine to drink."

Food Stamp Surfer Living off the Taxpayers

How many of the 47 million people in the Obama Economy are just like Jason Greenslate:

Probably a hell of a lot more than you would think. Your tax dollars at work. The legacy of Lyndon Baines Johnson:

"After the Great Society legislation of the 1960s, for the first time a person who was not elderly or disabled could receive need-based aid from the U.S. government.[76]"

Ain't the Great Society great? You can bet Jason Greenslate thinks it is.

Said Like a True Community Organizer

Yes, your good buddy and mine, the post-partisan president Barack Hussein Obama, the guy who is constantly complaining about partisanship in Washington apparently actually believes that Republicans opposition to a Obamacare constitutes a burning desire on their part to deny health care to 30 million Americans:
During a Friday afternoon press conference, President Obama defended ObamaCare, and chided Republicans for their attempts to repeal it. He said, “I think the really interesting question is why it is that my friends in the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting health care their holy grail, their number one priority. The one unifying principle in the Republican Party at the moment is making sure that 30 million don’t have health care.”
Forget the fact that every analysis you read about Obama's pet health care law will tell you that costs are going up for everyone, access to healthcare will be drastically restricted due in part to the fact that doctors are bailing on the profession as fast as they can AND 30 million Americans will STILL not have insurance under Obamacare.

Just like the community organizer this sorry excuse for a president has been and always will be, he's again (for the millionth time) lying to whip up partisan sentiment against people who want to inject some reason into this process.

First of all, ALL Americans have access to "health care". Much of the time truly needy people (and some who aren't truly needy) have better access to "health care" than those of us who pay for their health care (yes those of us who pay for our own health care ALSO pay for health care for the "needy"). What the liar in chief doesn't want you to know is that no one can be denied "health care" if they truly need it and well care is provided free of charge to the needy through various state and local programs.

Secondly, the fact that the poor have ready access to "health care" puts the lie to the notion that Obamacare the massive government scheme to provide HEALTH INSURANCE (not "health care") to everyone is not about "providing health care". It's about redistribution of wealth and government control of one of the most personal aspects of your life: Your health, your health care and how you pay for it which is none of the government's damn business.And this is exactly the way the punk community organizer who became president likes it. You can take the community organizer out of the community and put him in the White House. But with that "all grown up" title President of the United States he's still what he always has been: A punk community organizer who is now trying to organize the country by "fundamentally transforming" it. Bend over, folks: Here comes your "fundamental transformation".

RINO Boehner Gets Down to the REALLY Important Business!

Allegedly the most powerful Republican politician in the U.S. (even though he seems to have misplaced his testicles). Third in line for the presidency right behind Bozo Biden. Yes, John Boehner has really important business to do. The economy is in shambles; four or five times as many people give up looking for work as find work in any given month. The mother of all entitlements is headed down the tracks to bankrupt us faster than any other entitlement the Democrats have conceived in the last 80 years. A former weak ex-super power is increasing in strength even as we weaken and it's non-dictator dictator regularly flips Barry the bird. A former third-world laughingstock is about to become the world's biggest economy.  Yes, China is in the midst of a massive military build-up even as we tear ours down. RINO Boehner certainly has a lot of important things to fight for and against. Like announcing on his web site that the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree has been selected:
It’s beginning to look at least a little like Christmas now that an 88-foot tall Engelmann spruce from Colville National Forest in Colville, WA has been selected to serve as this year’s U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. The announcement was made this week by Forest Supervisor Laura Jo West: “‘It’s a very beautiful tree, one that the people of this great state will be proud to send to our nation’s capital,’ said West. … “Last month, Ted Bechtol, Superintendent of grounds at the U.S. Capitol, visited the Colville National Forest to look at all the candidate trees identified. He evaluated trees in Stevens, Ferry and Pend Oreille Counties. Bechtol shared, ‘All of the candidate trees are excellent specimens, but the chosen tree has the fullness and width needed for the Capitol grounds.’” The tradition of “The People’s Tree” dates back to 1964, when a 24-foot tall Douglas fir was planted on the Capitol grounds at the suggestion of Speaker John McCormack. After the fir died in 1968, the nation’s Forest Service began providing the tree.
As the Church lady would say "well isn't that spe-cial" With the country going to hell in a hand basket, it really makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to know that we aren't going to go without a Christmas tree this year. If you want "to get a better sense of this process" RINO Boehner has a video of the 2011 U.S. Capitol Tree being erected.

Tell you what Johnny: Here's the process I'd like to get a better sense of: The process of you pulling your head out of your ass and taking SOME action -- ANY action -- to attempt to reverse the wholesale destruction of our country at the hands of a bunch of radical leftists.

Cowering in Fear

Superpower no more after less than five years of the most destructive presidency in modern times: Rather than vowing to defend our embassies against the Islamic terror threat The Great and Powerful Obama wants so hard to deny the existence of, he has chosen instead to shut them down:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States issued an extraordinary global travel warning to Americans Friday about the threat of an al-Qaida attack and closed down 21 embassies and consulates across the Muslim world for the weekend.

The alert was the first of its kind since an announcement preceding the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This one comes with the scars still fresh from last year's deadly Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, and with the Obama administration and Congress determined to prevent any similar breach of an American Embassy or consulate.

"There is a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it," said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He told ABC News in an interview to be aired Sunday that the threat was "more specific" than previous ones and the "intent is to attack Western, not just U.S. interests."
Unfortunately for General Dempsey, when you are a military leader during the regime of a leftist totalitarian administration, you are forced to be a stooge for their capitulation to Islamic terror. Hence the fact that he is being trotted out to telegraph the obvious weakness of the former most powerful nation on the face of the earth.

Time was when we would staunchly defend our interests overseas - we vigorously defended our position as leader of the free world and had no problem letting any rag-tag bunch of terrorist thugs know that fire would rain down on them from above should they decide engage in cowardly attacks on our sovereign territory. But first came James Earl Carter Jr. Then came William Jefferson "I did not have sex with that woman" Clinton. Now we have Barack Hussein "fundamental transformation" Obama who's "foreign policy" (such as it is) has fundamentally transformed our country into a cowering shell of it's former self overseas. Let's review for those folks who either are in total denial or simply choose to forget what happens with foreign policy and military affairs when we (they, not us) elect Democrats as president:

  • The Obama regime started with the worst secretary of state since Madeline Aldumb bringing a big red button to her slavish ass-kissing session with Vladimir Putin. That "reset" of U.S./Russian relations worked great as we all know with Putin giving us the finger over the Ed Snowden debacle. Now, while this administration is in the middle of a massive cover-up of the terror attack in Libya, we've decided to just wave the white flag early rather than keep our embassies open and defend them. 
  • Before this, GW Bush was forced into waging a war on terror after eight years of neglect of the terror threat by Slick Willie's administration. So GW started less than nine months into his first term having to fight two wars simultaneously while rebuilding the military from Slick's 40% cuts.
  • Likewise for Ronald Reagan who had to bring the military back from Carter's weakness, capitulation, hand-wringing and military cuts in the face of the hostage situation in Iran. 
  • Remember Vietnam, a war conceived by Democrats and run by Democrats that it took a Republican to get us out of after just over ten years and 58,000 of our brave soldiers lost?
These are just a few of the most prominent examples of what happens when you let Democrats run foreign policy. We become weak, we become a laughingstock, we cower, and citizens of the still-greatest country God gave man die and the hands of terrorists.
