I hear many say that ISIS has jumped the shark with the video release of their burning alive of a captured Jordanian pilot. Even some Democrats want to declare war on ISIS now. We heard similar sentiment expressed months ago when they released videos of the slow, torturous (no compassionate 18th Century French Jacobins with guillotines, these 7th-come-21st Century “extremists”) be-headings of American and other Western journalists. Not so many such calls for war when ISIS was killing Christians and other minorities en masse. Wonder why?
Childlike liberals need pictures to get excited?
It seems so, given that of all the existential threats to the United States, while ISIS is not a “junior varsity” one, a majority of Americans (Democrats all) re-elected a President Barack Hussein Obama who had appeased Iran before 2012 and who since has facilitated the development of a nuclear weapon by the world’s leading supporter of terrorism every year since 1979. The same Iran that took and held American hostages until the specter of The Republican Gipper was manifest. The same Islamist “republic” that sponsors puppets in Gaza (Hamas), Lebanon (Hezbollah), and Syria (Bashir Assad). The same Iranian mullahs that funded and planned the killing of American armed forces and civilians in Beirut, the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia and in Iraq. The same Iranian Supreme Leader that ordered the mowing down of young people and others during the Green revolution in Tehran, during which Obama begged to have lunch with the ruling mullahs, while remaining silent about the massacre of innocent freedom seekers.
What’s also so sad is that more people don’t NOW see how Saddam jumped the shark by harboring Abu Nidal, training hijackers at the plane shell in the desert, invading Iran and Kuwait, using gas against Iran and the Kurds, publicly paying the parents of suicide bombers on TV, defying the UN WMD-inspectors and firing on US planes. Saddam almost assassinated Bush41. Thank God that over 5000 terrorists trained to attack the US homeland went to the Iraq War to defend theirs and died at our hands, thanks to the Surge ordered by the grownup named President George W. Bush who stayed the course even after the shiny pictures faded from view.
The Islamist terror shark has jumped but Obama declared the War on Terror over years ago and, accordingly by his lights, surrendered Iraq least year, yesterday called ISIS a mere “organization”, and is in the process of turning Afghanistan over to the Taliban again. Obama jumped the appeasement surrender-monkey shark years ago. In fact, ISIS owes Obama credit for not leaving even a 5000-man residual force in Baghdad, thus allowing them a foothold from which to conquer massive territory in Iraq and Syria. ISIS wants to be what Saddam was when most Democrats understood his threat under Clinton’s Desert Fox and voted by a majority for War in Iraq after 9/11.
Sharks have been jumped for decades by Islamists but some people (all Democrats and Rand Paul) need shiny pictures to get serious, and then for only five minutes. And when our war policy doesn’t produce Connecticuts in the Middle East within 72 hours and no more shiny pictures appear on NBC, they cut and run, i.e. surrender to evil and retreat to their ostrich hole of envy and slander.
FDR, HST, JFK and Reagan didn’t need shiny pictures. Dubya didn’t. Serious people don’t. Instead they stay the course until unconditional surrender.
Some seem to think that only a direct link to 9/11 is the only reason to go to war and that only Osama bin Laden was a threat. Yet before 9/11 even Al Qaeda hadn’t carried out 9/11. Hitler wasn’t involved in 9/11, but they saw the shiny pictures. Stalin killed the photographers near his Terror, Famine, Purge and Gulag, so many Democrats went all anti-anti-Communist since Joe McCarthy’s pictures were so shiny.
Yet a picture of a burning prisoner might be a reason to go to war, while the killing of thousands and a nuclear threat isn’t? It doesn’t compute and who on Earth, including allies, would trust the word of President Obama to stay the course anyway? Which enemy would fear him? Even an oil price-savaged Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine and its nuclear weapons aid to Iran.
Pray for God’s protection until January 20, 2017 because that is the only hope we have with this interloping appeaser in the White House; and pray to God that a majority of Americans will finally understand that NO Democrat can be trusted to defend us, whether there appear shiny pictures on CNN or not.
“One man with courage makes a majority.” – Andrew Jackson
But I’ll bet the Appeaser-in-Chief keeps this “you-can-keep-your-policy” promise unlike the one made to Americans under the domestic equivalent of the bomb, known as Obamacare.
President Barack Obama is a serial liar but, like a stopped clock, occasionally also tells the truth. For instance, he promised skyrocketing energy prices. They set a record high in October. He promised to bankrupt the coal industry with new carbon emissions-standards. The war on coal is clearly on the offensive and in the direction of bankruptcy courts in West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
In Iraq and Afghanistan, he promised surrender. American troops have abandoned the former terrorist playground of Saddam Hussein with nary a footprint left behind; while President B. Hussein Obama has set a 2014 date-certain deadline for withdrawal in the former safe haven of al Qaeda and their Taliban hosts in Afghanistan.
Which brings us to the number one state-sponsor of terror on Earth since 1979, Continue reading
President Obama’s Democratic Party-owned weakness makes wars more likely, frequent and deadly. Appeasement increases the likelihood that more vets will also need to be remembered on Memorial Days.
Ninety-five years ago today, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, an armistice ended the War to End All Wars. Or so the world hoped. Sadly, a German people, protected by the ceasefire from fully experiencing in their homeland the havoc they had wrecked upon their neighbors, would follow Adolph Hitler Continue reading
What is the state of U.S. intelligence since President Obama succeeded President Bush in 2009?
Twelve years ago this morning Usama bin Laden’s al Qaeda carried out the deadliest attack against Americans on American soil since Americans turned on each other in the War Between the States. Thirty months ago, UBL was killed by U.S. Navy Seals in Pakistan. One year ago today, terrorists carried out the deadliest attack on a U.S. embassy since two were bombed in Africa in 1998.

On September 10, 1813, after winning the Battle of Lake Erie at Put-In-Bay, Ohio, thus vanquishing the British Royal Navy from the Great Lakes in the War of 1812, U.S. Commander Oliver Hazard Perry declared: “We have met the enemy and they are ours.”
200 years later, Vladamir Putin’s Russian Navy guards Syria’s bays for Iran. Secretary of State John Kerry previously met Bashar al-Assad and declared him a “reformer”. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met Putin and declared a “re-set” before Commander-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama met Putin-puppet Dmitry Medvedev and declared post-election strategic and nuclear arsenal-surrender “flexibility”; even as he begged to meet with Iran’s mullahs as they mowed down liberty-seeking youth in the streets.

Christians, Jews, women, and freedom-loving Muslims await compassion from liberal Democrats who have showered their love on the former Soviet Union, Viet Cong, Sandinistas, Fidel Castro, Yassir Arafat, ‘Reformer’ Assad, Iranian Mullahs, and Sharia-imposing Muslim Brotherhoods.
Poor Americans desiring full-time work for middle class wages would also appreciate some consideration from the food stamp, green energy, gay marriage, amnesty for illegals, Obamacare, contraceptive and race-obsessed re-elected president and his Democratic Party, but I digress.
This admittedly former neo-con, but still U.S. national security hawk, could be receptive to action by our armed forces in Syria to deter and secure weapons of mass destruction given a variety of circumstances and scenarios. After the non-WMD attacks on our American homeland nearly 12 years ago, we considered the removal of serial-WMD-user Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the degrading of Iran’s nuclear program, as well as the elimination of the safe haven-for-al-Qaeda-and-Taliban nation-state in Afghanistan to be post-9/11-imperatives for the U.S. and the Free World generally.
Thanks to the pre-surge ‘stay the course’ persistence of President George W. Bush, congressional Republicans and Democrat-turned-Independent-Senator Joe Lieberman, Iraq was liberated toward a purple-fingered Third Way and Core al Qaeda and the Taliban were decimated. Continue reading
[A post-Florida Gator-devouring USC gamecock’s Stone Mountain of Georgia roost-view of his undergrad alma mater, Wofford College and Spartanburg hometown’s hosting of the South Carolina, CBS/National Journal, Republican Party presidential debate]
Let the Big Dog eat!
The motto of Wofford Terriers’ (pictured) sports teams is “Let the Big Dog eat!”, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich looked like the Big Dog eating away at GOP presidential nomination opponents’ leads last Saturday night.
The Speaker’s mastery of foreign policy was equaled only by Former Massachusett’s Governor Mitt Romney, both of whom made clear that they would be willing to take unilateral military action to prevent the Islamist mullahs ruling the terrorist state of Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Unfortunately for those, like me, that consider it imperative that any President of the United States maintain a credible deterrent and that we have a nominee with a bold jobs plan (like 9-9-9) fit for the depths of the present economic crisis, Herman Cain turns out to be with Ron Paul in publicly and dovishly taking the military option off the table over the issue that could drastically change life on Planet Earth one minute after Iran demonstrates its enty into the world’s Nuclear Club.
The critical exchange:
Major Garrett: This week, a U.N. nuclear watchdog agency provided additional credible evidence that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon. If you were president right now, what would you do specifically that this administration is not doing to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon?
Herman Cain: The first thing that I would do is to assist the opposition movement in Iran, that’s tryin’ to overthrow the regime. Our enemies are not the people of Iran, it’s the regime. And a regime change is what they are trying to achieve. Secondly, we need to put economic pressure on Iran, by way of our own energy independence strategy. By having our own energy independence strategy, we will impact the price of oil in the world markets, because Iran uses oil not only as a– means of currency, but they use it as a weapon.
One of the reasons that they are able to afford that nuclear weapons program, is because of oil. Secondly, we would then work to increase sanctions on Iran, along with our friends and our allies. So whereas we will not be– so that’s why I do believe that they have a nuclear weapons program and they are closer to having nuclear weapon, stopping them– the only we can stop them is through economic means.
Major Garrett: A quick follow up, Mr. Cain. You say assisting the opposition, would you entertain military assistance and opposition?
Herman Cain: I would not entertain– military opposition. I’m talkin’ about to help the opposition movement within the country. And then there’s one other thing that we could do. We could deploy our ballistic missile defense capable (UNINTEL) war ships strategically in that part of the world. We have the biggest fleet of those warships in the world. And we could use them strategically in the event that they were able to fire a ballistic missile.
Cain’s, not quite the Spartan-like fighting stance
Spartanburg is named for the Pelopennisian War/Sparta 300-like fighting spirit and skill of General Daniel Morgan’s (whose statute stands in his eponymously-named Downtown Square of the debate’s host city) “Spartan Rifles” that defeated the British in the pivotal nearby Revolutionary War Battles of Cowpens and Kings Mountain.
Didn’t the serial Apologist-in-Chief just get finished trumping the birthers by authenticating his natural American born, eligible-to-be-President-of -the-United-States bona fides, or is that a different super man:
After recently undertaking a journey to walk — not fly — across the United States in the “Grounded” storyline and reconnect with the country and everyday Americans, Superman appears to be taking another step that could have major implications for his national identity: in Action Comics #900…
…Superman announces that he is going to give up his U.S. citizenship. Despite very literally being an alien immigrant, Superman has long been seen as a patriotic symbol of “truth, justice, and the American way,” from his embrace of traditional American ideals to the iconic red and blue of his costume.
Barack Hussein Obama II’s long-form birth certificate confirms my long-held view that the greatest threat to U.S. sovereignty are not assimilation-challenged, illegal Mexican immigrants, but rather, United States natural-born-liberal-Democrat citizens whether they trace their ancestors to the Mayflower or the Kansas wife of a Kenyan.
Consider the judgment of the gullible, yet naturally born to Illinois Republicans, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with superiority-at-3am-to-Obama smarts, that Syria’s Bashar al-Assad is a “reformer.”
