We’ve entered a phase where we no longer fix problems… We pretend they’re not there. If facts are really inconvenient, we play act.
We avoid mentioning we are 18 trillion in debt. We just play like we have an excess. We even fantasize on national TV about who we might give it to. Hey… let’s make college FREE!
We measure unemployment in a way massive numbers of unemployed simply dont count.
We redefine “deportations” to pretend we fixed the border.
We declare ourselves the winner of the war on terror and strut away… Leaving a bewildered and previously beaten foe in control of a battlefield he didnt earn. A battlefield paid for in the blood of U.S. patriots.
From the wisdom of a prior era: How many legs does a dog have if you call a tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg. ~ A. Lincoln
Seriously? We have people jump our fence a few thousand times a day and we haven’t evacuated Texas, you giant pansy.
If it helps, don’t think of him as a trespasser, consider him an “undocumented resident” of the White House. Show a little compassion for heaven’s sake. He adds diversity to the tapestry that is the oval office. This isn’t a crime, it’s a humanitarian crisis.
So do the right thing, Barry… just put him up in the Lincoln bedroom a coupla months at your expense while congress decides whether or not he can just stay there forever.
Unless maybe you want to just pull out that famous pen and let him stay there yourself.
This crew wouldn’t recognize irony if it chewed off their pants leg.
NATIONAL SECURITY NEWS
This morning the White House announced completion of a new ultra secure southern border fence, built at a cost of $3 trillion. Nancy Pelosi pronounced this as clear evidence of the president’s continued commitment to the safety of our homeland.
A $4 billion bid is underway to have the sign thereon translated into Arabic, Urdu, Pashto and Farsi.
The sign contract, secured by Barry’s Imaginary Son & Sons, is estimated for completion in June.

The president of Mexico filed a formal protest, saying such unwarranted and Draconian security measures might deny millions of central and south American children their right to unfettered access to the US education system.
13 years ago on 9-11, we were attacked by Muslim jihadists. It was not the first time, just the most successful. It woke us up to the reality that when someone declares war on you, ignoring it is not a good option.
I do miss the clarity offered by George Bush. He didn’t condemn all Muslims as terrorists, but neither did he unrealistically deny we are under attack by Muslim terrorists. Today we are led by someone that treats Islamic terrorism like we live in a Harry Potter novel and we cannot mention “he who shall not be named”.
Pardon me for suspecting it doesn’t bode well to go to war under a leader that isn’t even willing to properly identify WHO we are at war with. They know exactly who we are. We should be as honest about it.
Last night the president said he will model the coming conflict on our actions in Yemen and Somalia.
Does anyone recall us WINNING in Yemen or Somalia?
We haven’t. They are as we speak, hotbeds of terrorism, and well established training grounds for terrorists. Why would we model our effort on a plan that hasn’t provided a successful result?
One vivid memory of the Somalia campaign was the Mogadishu event recorded in the book Blackhawk Down. The trouble stemmed from troops expected to do a job while being limited to lesser weapons than they asked for. They were sent to capture a warlord and his crew. They requested armor for extraction and AC130 gunships flying support.
They got much less, because civilians halfway across the world in Clintonian DC wanted something “lower profile” in the name of political correctness. [Can’t look like bullies dontchaknow.] Our men went in without the armor and firepower we could easily have supplied, and in result we lost men we shouldn’t have lost.
Then the president pulled our troops out like our tail was catching fire instead of retaliating in force. Result: Somalia is to this day a lawless terrorist paradise. Sure, let’s make THAT our model.
I guess the bright side is he didn’t say he’d base it on his response in Benghazi.
So yes… I fully believe the president will model our effort on failed campaigns and try to fight a politically correct war. He’s the first president to ever try to treat war as a video game. He will get more people hurt than he will help because he’s forgotten the benefit of being a super-power in a war is USING that power. If you MUST fight, unleash the dogs and fight.
We are entering into a conflict the president clearly didn’t wish to fight but was dragged into by public opinion. He is truly trying to “lead from behind”. I am not looking forward to watching him try to run a war based on the latest public opinion poll while ignoring advice of military leaders for whom his every action has shown disdain.
What he should be doing is telling our military what the GOAL is, and let THEM develop the strategy to accomplish it. I have faith in our military, but an army of lions led by a lamb may be in trouble up against an army of lambs led by a lion.
As 9/11/2001 showed us, we can’t ignore the threat, but going about this as it is being handled is very troubling.

Advanced Players & Alcoholics:
• Teams alternate taking Tequila shots every time he uses the pronoun “I” or “me”. When you lose consciousness you are out.
• If he uses them more than 5 or more times in 1 sentence, both teams must stand on one leg til he does so again. If you fall down you’re out.
BONUS: If he admits that a country the US had in its possession when he took the reins is being conquered by a guy the US had in captivity when he took the reins… both teams win.
Among the many meaningless promises…
made in the process of an election that catapulted a junior senator with a propensity for making hard decisions by voting “present” to the top office in our nation… One stands out as particularly laughable.
That would be the promise to restore our global image around the world.
When he was running for office, papers in the US and around the world tittered about how he gave them goosebumps, and glowingly compared the effect he had on crowds to John Kennedy.
The guy talked one helluva game. He’d have the nation on wifi. We’d enter a new era of government transparency. DC lobbyists would all starve and die as they were shut out of the White House. The world would love us and respect us. The level of the seas would respond to his presence.
Enter stage left: REALITY
We are laughed at by Russia… as Vlad Putin fans the dead embers of the cold war into a toasty flame while grabbing real estate in Ukraine and thumbing his nose at the boy who prefers golf and fundraisers to leadership.
The president went on TV in response and blusters about what he “will not allow”, but in the same speech took military action off the table. [Yeah, that’ll scare the heck out of ’em.]
Obama threatens Russia with economic sanctions, but Europe shops at Vlad’s gas station. The strongest economic power in Europe is Germany, and Angela Merkel doesn’t trust Obama as far as she can throw him since it was revealed we were spying on her phone conversations. Don’t hold your breath waiting for Europe to back our play.
Our southern border … is under a full frontal assault because our president used his pen and his phone to ignore existing law, setting off a dog-whistle of amnesty heard all over the American continent.
In Syria… we provided material assistance to rebels to fight their dictator despite their ties to Al Qaida. Syrian rebels have now branched into Iraq and are committing atrocities.
In Iraq… the Syrian rebels are led by a man that was in US custody when Obama took office. He is steadily taking over the country… also in US custody when Obama took office. We left without a status of forces agreement that gave us a presence beyond an embassy.
In Israel… a country that is our strongest ally in the region, we have provided material aid to their enemy, Hamas. Even though Hamas was designated a terrorist group by the Clinton State Dept as early as the 90s.
Our repeated insistence on a ceasefire in Gaza resulted in multiple 1-sided ceasefires, where rockets from Gaza continued to fly into Israel. As a result their president, who was proven correct in the process, openly told ours to never second guess him on the subject again. Israeli journalists openly refer to Our Sec of State as “nebbish”. Basically that’s Yiddish for “big pussy”.
we watched our Ambassador and several others die as we did absolutely nothing. Several general officers in our military were removed from office for unrelated reasons immediately afterward. Not because they defied orders to avoid interfering. Right?
Our military… …has been reduced to statuses comparable to our standing pre-WW2. In addition to a purge of general staff, thousands of experienced field officers (Captains and Majors) are in the process of being booted.
This of course is due to “budget cuts” and is in no way associated with anyone failing the litmus test of whether they would agree to fire on their own countrymen if ordered. Meanwhile our ability to fund more and more welfare programs is apparently limitless.
Obama says we are NOT facing a new cold war That is bull. He says it only because saying otherwise simply points out that in an debate with Romney… Public opinion and the press may have favored Obama, but history favors Romney.
So much for “reset”. Our world standing has gone from being feared to being a joke. Not only do our enemies not fear us, our allies don’t trust us.
And they are both right.
If a football team has a known weak player in a defensive position, the offense will take advantage of it by repeatedly choosing plays that press hard on his zone. That tendency is not limited to the field of sports.
We are going to see a repeat of the behavior that led to the Cuban missile crisis. Before Obama leaves office, Putin will test us by wiping his muddy feet on the Monroe Doctrine and establishing bases in the Western Hemisphere.
-1- Jesse Ventura defeats decorated sniper’s widow in court and declares “My reputation is restored now”. However in hindsight he finds it may have been optimistic to expect headline: “Ventura Proves Manliness by Beating Up Girl”.
-2- Federal court rules DOJ must disclose “Fast & Furious” docs previously hidden via executive privilege. Insiders expect ruling may have caused as many as 14 hard drive crashes.
-3- Multiple US citizens stricken with the Ebola are being flown from Liberia to the US for treatment. This replaces our former policy of only allowing deadly infectious diseases to freely enter the country via the south Texas border.
-4- President Obama resorts to disparaging speeches and tweets to contend he’s “doing the right thing” by ignoring Congress as well as 2 centuries of established law and the US Constitution. So y’all jus quit hatin all the time.
-5- A book on lives of politicians thru eyes of those on Secret Service details revealed VP Biden loves to swim in the nude. Initial reactions to that mental image suggest this could do more to combat obesity than low-cal bacon.
It’s mind boggling that we had illegal aliens fearlessly protesting in front of the White House… home of the guy ultimately in charge of enforcing our law. They demand a seat at the table at any decision concerning the outcome of illegal immigration.
Though it was known they were illegal aliens… apparently they needn’t fear arrest.
Notice I’m referring to them as illegal aliens instead of a nice euphemism. Calling a citizen of another country that breaks into ours illegally “an undocumented immigrant” is like calling someone that breaks into your house an “unrecorded home-owner”. The fact they’re raiding the fridge and sleeping on the couch does not give them legal standing to decide whether or not you kick them out.
If that seems confusing given many now pretend it is “racist” to treat illegal aliens as, well, illegal aliens… try breaking into Mexico (or any other nation, they just happen to be nearby), and go to the capital and protest outside the mansion of their chief executive. Loudly demand a seat at the table in the executive office to decide your own fate.
The pic below shows a post on the White House website today.
It isn’t enough our president bows to foreign potentates and has pissed away gains paid for in blood of our troops… And as we speak Christians in Iraq are being murdered for that action. It isn’t enough that he funds Hamas, a known terrorist group even as they shower rockets on our ally Israel.
No, he has to use the trappings of our White House to perform the verbal equivalent of fellatio on behalf of America, in honor of Islam.
So let’s review the best known contribution of Islam to our national fabric, shall we? We quietly remember the thousands who died in that dubious contribution on 9/11 of each year.
We also celebrate that contribution every time we watch gray haired grandmothers in line at the airport getting groped like drunken prom dates while swarthy men who match the profile of Islamic jihadists walk by unmolested in the name of political correctness.
So yes, Mr President, we realize YOU think Islam has made huge contributions to our land, but unlike you, we were never fed horse-hockey about your holy prophet in a madrasa. We studied actual history, which points out Mohammed was just a caravan robbing pedophile who murdered people for a living and married a 6 yr old girl. He condoned letting his men rape those they captured on caravans they attacked.If he lived today we’d send SEAL Team 6 to put a bullet in his head.
So while you join millions worldwide in celebrating a guy who Muslims will kill for at the drop of a political cartoon… The rest of us will remember this country was really built by people who worshipped God, not “Allah”.
Keep your heathen worship to yourself. Eventually posterity will remember the stupidest and most self destructive moment in US history as the time we elected a vacuous Muslim to the office of Commander in Chief in the middle of a war with Islamic jihadists.
You are destined to be remembered as an asterisk on our record sheet… The only time we elected someone that changed sides in the middle of a war. You, Val Jarrett, and your entire Muslim Brotherhood oriented crew are a huge blemish on our national record.
