Obama’s “Coalition of the UNWILLING” in Syria


In the New York Times today 8/30/13:

“Mr. Obama has made clear that this initiative would come from the United States, and that while he welcomed international participation, he was not depending on foreign forces for what would essentially be an operation CONDUCTED LARGELY BY THE UNITED STATES, from naval vessels off the Syrian coast.”

Obama in 2012 in comments to the press:

“For us to take military action unilaterally (in Syria), as some have suggested…..I think is a mistake.”


So what is SRT’s “Word of the Day”?:

Duplicitous: n  , pl -ties — deception; double-dealing

Obama hails the results of good works of Islam in America….


“Islam has contributed to the character of our country….As the Koran teaches, whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see its results…..Muslim Americans and their good works have helped to build our nation, and we’ve seen the results.”
Barack Obama tonight at White House Iftar Dinner for Ramadan

While normal, everyday Americans are now prohibited from touring the White House, the President celebrates Ramadan with Muslims in the White House.  

Who, after 9-11, Fort Hood shooting, and the Boston Bombing, would believe an American President would hail the “results” of Islam’s contribution to America?

@jackmcoldcuts, “I’m Angry”, too, about Obama’s fiascos in #Libya and #Egypt


All day, I’ve been wanting to sum up my thoughts about the anniversary of 9-11 yesterday and the events surrounding it.

News of the terrorism in Libya and Egypt and the death of our ambassador in Libya ( and 3 other Americans) made me angry.  News of Obama’s refusal to meet with Netanyahu added to my anger.

The further frothing at the mouth of the MSM (and proof of MSM collaboration against Romney) because Romney dared to criticize the empty foreign policy of the “Empty Chair” president sent my thoughts and anger in high gear today.

I am disgusted at a President who used military force, without Congressional approval and against the War Powers Act, in order to remove Gaddafi from Libya and to aid in the ouster of Mubarak in Egypt—-both less-than-stellar men, but leaders who, at least, were mostly in sync with America  in the region.  Now Obama’s so-called “Arab Spring” has turned into a nasty, ruthless “Winter”…..and the Obama administration defends the perpetrators of violence (the one’s he allowed into power) by apologizing for American free speech.  Those perpetrators later murdered our ambassador and other Americans.

But I’m not sure anything further I can write will top what Ace of Spades blogger Jack M. (@jackmcoldcuts) expressed.  Without further adieu and in its entirety:

I was watching the “news” accounts of the ongoing Obama-fiasco in Libya and Egypt this morning, and I couldn’t help but come to one headline/twitter friendly conclusion:

“Obama Apologized. American Ambassador Eulogized. First Amendment Marginalized.”

Perhaps I should add a subsidiary clause to the phrase: maybe something like “Media Sanitized” in reference to the way they are scrambling to protect their precious president as he speaks softly and stumblingly slams his little stick in the Muslim Brotherhood’s front door.

But I’m not writing this post to focus on media bias. Others do that, and they do it better than I do. I’m writing this post for a different reason.

I’m angry.

Continue reading

I’m angry at a hypocritical, feckless President who personally spikes the football over Bin Laden’s death while his state department apologizes to Islamists for the exertion of similar First Amendment rights by other Americans who aren’t lucky enough to be anointed god-kings.

I’m angry that a posturing, empty-suit of a president lectures Americans on “denigrating religious views” when he is on record as referring to Americans of faith as “bitter clingers”, and when he has campaign surrogates attacking his opponent for being a Mormon.

I’m angry that our stroke-addled, possibly brain-damaged Vice President describes 9/11 as a “bittersweet” day, as our embassies are burning and Americans are being killed.

I’m angry over the fact that we spent blood and treasure in Obama’s “Lead from Behind Libyan Adventure” only to see our Ambassador murdered and dragged thru the streets by the very people Obama placed in power.

I’m angry that we helped force an ally out in Egypt knowing he’d be replaced  with an Al-Qaeda friendly government that enjoyed watching its minions take the first symbolic opportunity they had to burn our flag and replace it with Al-Qaeda’s.

I’m angry that at a time when Al-Qaeda’s flag flies over the Cairo embassy, the mis-administration prepares to forgive over $1 BILLION in Egyptian debt.

I’m angry that “Pimp With A Limp” gets to talk to the president, while Bibi Netanyahu, whose allied country faces a potential nuclear annihilation, gets to talk to the hand.

I’m angry that the gut instinct of this mis-Administration is to sympathize with and excuse those who hold our fundamental values in contempt as those same people actively seek any pretext they can find to slaughter us where we stand.

I’m angry that the mis-Administration’s paltry response to a region-wide attack on America, which is, incidentally, what this is, is to deploy 50 Marines to Libya and jet-off to a Vegas fundraiser while preparing a top-ten list for Letterman’s show.

I’m angry that the cornerstone freedoms of speech and religious liberty enshrined in our Constitution are so routinely dismissed and mocked by this mis-Administration. 1st Amendment freedom of speech? “Not if it hurts feelings” we are told. Freedom of religion? “Not if it stands between our mis-Administration and giving Sandra Fluke a free abortion should she want one” we are hectored.

But with four Americans dead, our flag burning, and our embassies trashed, you know what really makes me angry?

Our president isn’t.

Think about that fact.

Our president isn’t. He read a bland and bloodless set of prepared remarks for 10 minutes, hid behind Hillary Clinton’s ever-widening skirt, took no questions, and then thought the best thing he could do would be to hit the Vegas strip.

The truth is this: yesterday I read that the President’s team came out swinging against the “2016:Obama’s America” movie.

They didn’t like the way the president was portrayed. So they attacked Dinesh D’souza and, for some reason, Tea Partiers.

Here is the language they used on BarackObama.com:

“It should say enough about D’Souza’s credibility that a movie catering to the Tea Party attacks someone for allegedly ‘anti-colonial’ views,” the entry reads. “His attempts to hide his lies behind pseudo-scholarly presentation and glossy production values cannot withstand basic scrutiny. The facts show that 2016: Obama’s America is nothing more than an insidious attempt to dishonestly smear the President by giving intellectual cover to the worst in subterranean conspiracy theories and false, partisan attacks.”

That’s tougher than anything Obama said in response to the death of an American ambassador, his staff, or the attack on our embassy grounds.

Which I guess suggests a lesson of sorts. Like those who attacked our embassies and killed our personnel, Obama seems to get riled up by movies that make a point of smearing a self-proclaimed false-messianic prophet.

We can do better. We have to do better. I’m doing all I can to vent my anger into something constructive. I hope you’ll join me.

Russian warships at DNC? Really? #DNC #Obama


Does no one in the Democratic Party have a grasp on our military and its history?

While retired Adm. John Nathman, a former commander of Fleet Forces Command, honored vets as America’s best, the ships from the Russian Federation Navy were arrayed like sentinels on the big screen above.

This is what you get, I suppose, Admiral, when you choose to support the anti-military party in America.

Waiting on the MSM to cover this major gaffe…..in 3…2…1…

Deep thought for the day #ObamaHypocrite #NavySEALS #blameBush


After 4 years as President, Obama still blames Bush for all of our economic woes…..
By Obama’s logic, then shouldn’t Bush have been the first person Obama congratulated for the policies leading to the killing of bin Laden?

Allen West’s spot-on view of the Marines and the latest Taliban “incident”


I’m sure, with the orgasmic media on the issue, that almost everyone knows about the video which allegedly shows Marines urinating on the corpses of some members of the Taliban.

While I understand military conduct, or decent conduct, in general, my first reaction was “so what?”

Of course, the Obama administration has made every attempt to make self-righteous condemnations:

“Obama administration bigwigs are falling all over themselves to denounce, condemn, lament, and apologize for the unfortunate behavior of a few Marines in Afghanistan last year. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta condemned the action as not just deplorable but “utterly deplorable.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed not just dismay but “total dismay.”……..

….And it smells of cheap self-righteousness and moral posturing from an administration that, to be honest, hasn’t devoted a whole lot of time to thanking our troops for what they’ve been doing in very difficult and dangerous circumstances.”

Obama can’t seem to muster the strength to support our troops at all times….even in the small things like having his picture made with them while in Iraq;

He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,” a State Department official tells me. “Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let’s just say the scales fell from my eyes after I did. These are people over here who’ve been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn’t want to take f–king pictures with them?”

But I digress…. I give you Congressman Allen West ,who says it better than anyone on the issue of the Marines and the Taliban:

“I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.

“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?

“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.

“As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”

Well said, Col. West, well said.

Our Trojan Horse President….


Obama bows to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia

Trojan Horse (definition):
concealed stratagem: somebody or something that is meant to disrupt, undermine, subvert, or destroy an enemy or rival, especially somebody or something that operates while concealed within an organization.

They say truth is stranger than fiction.

And as Robert Knight at the Washington Times points out, writing a novel about a President whose goal is to undermine the USA could never match the real thing we have in Barack Hussein Obama.

As we begin 2012, it is imperative that we remember the damage that this President has unleashed upon our country.  He must be removed from office….and this is the year we must do it.

Knights article is a great reminder of so many of the appalling things Obama has done in three years….for which much of the media and many Americans have given him a pass…

I was thinking about writing a novel about what might happen if a man who hates America and wants to bring it down is somehow elected president. What would he do?……

…….First, the Trojan Horse president would initiate unprecedented spending, driving the debt up by more than $4 trillion just in the first three years. Much of the money would go into the pockets of political supporters and people who donate heavily to his campaigns…….

……….(He would)  Ship hundreds of taxpayer-purchased firearms to Mexican drug gangs in order to frame law-abiding gun sellers in Texas. When the Fast and Furious weapons are used to kill U.S. and Mexican lawmen, the attorney general will pretend he didn’t know about the program until very recently and is shocked, shocked! The attorney general will claim that critics of this criminally insane policy are motivated by racial animus against him and the president. After all, this worked when anyone questioned why the president’s college and medical records were sealed or why he attended a Marxist minister’s church for 20 years and hung out with known terrorists.

He would appoint Supreme Court justices who believe in a “living Constitution,” which means they can ignore its plain meaning when it interferes with their ideological agenda.

He would stack the National Labor Relations Board with union hacks who would do unspeakable things such as order a major company (Boeing) not to open a new factory in a right-to-work state (South Carolina) in the middle of the worst recession since the Great Depression. If he got away with that, he would go ahead and strengthen a crony socialist system reminiscent of Mussolini’s Italy or Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela that subsidizes “winners” such as Solyndra.

Finally, throughout his tenure, he would employ the Marxist rhetoric of class warfare, blame “the wealthy” and make more Americans dependent on government checks. He would sucker Republican leaders into secret meetings and emerge to accuse them of wanting to raise taxes on all but the rich.

UPDATE: I want names: Multiple airline issues; scrambled jets on 10th anniversary of 9-11 #911


UPDATE 9/12/11:  According to MSNBC, on the AA flight, there were two Israelis and one Russian questioned and released. No names given.

According to Detroit Free Press, on the Frontier flight, all released, no names given:

The three passengers who were taken off the plane in handcuffs were released Sunday night, and no charges were filed against them, airport spokesman Scott Wintner said.

And apparently on the United 3681, the men were found to be air marshals.  But people on the plane said the two men were taken off in handcuffs.  Still no names and still questionable.

And, apparently, I am not the only one wondering about names of “unruly” passengers.

ORIGINAL POST BELOW:

Just in the last half hour or so I have read about 3 different airline incidents today involving “unruly” passengers.

I want names!  None of the articles so far mention the names of the passengers in question.

These occurences may be coincidence, but I doubt it.  The names may be Smith, Jones, or Johnson, but I doubt it.

Today, a flight from LAX to JFK, experience “unruly passengers” and military jets were scrambled to follow the plane:

Sources told CBS News, the three passengers on Flight 34 were disruptive, moving in and out of lavatories, even at one point locking themselves inside……The unruly passengers eventually returned to their seats and were being questioned by federal authorities after the plane touched down at JFK, 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon reported. …The North American Aerospace Defense Command scrambled two F-16 jets to shadow Flight 34 until it landed safely at Kennedy Airport at 4:10 p.m. Sunday…..A law enforcement official said the incident was not believed to be terror related. Smith said a “security concern” was brought to the airline’s attention but the plane’s captain never declared any sort of security threat and never requested law enforcement help.

So why were jets scrambled if there was no request for help?  Who were the unruly passengers and were they detained after questioning?

Similarly, this afternoon, three people have been detained in Detroit after “suspicious” activity and locking themselves in the bathroom:

Frontier Flight 623, with 116 passengers on board, landed without incident in Detroit at 3:30 p.m. EDT after the crew reported that two people were spending “an extraordinarily long time” in a bathroom, Frontier spokesman Peter Kowalchuck said.

// The Airbus 318 taxied to a pad away from the terminal and police took three passengers into custody, Kowalchuck said. The three escorted off the plane in handcuffs included two men and a woman.
Two F-16s were dispatched to shadow the Airbus, said John Cornelio, spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which is headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs.
And a third incident hasn’t even made it to the mainstream news  from what I can find.  From Townhall.com:
Young America’s Foundation Program Officer Ron Meyer was aboard United …Flight 3681 going from St. Louis to Dulles Airport near Washington D.C.  and has informed me the plane was forced to land 10 minutes ago after two men stood up on the plane and declared they were Federal Air Marshals. The men were then asked for paperwork to prove the claim, and when it couldn’t be produced, the plane made an emergency landing. Passengers are being forced to deplane, all luggage is being checked again and all passengers must be checked back in.
Well, that’s new tactic…..and I still want to know names.
And updated report from Townhall.com states that Oliver North was also on the United 3681 flight.
Perhaps we will get updates on the names of the people involved in these “suspicious” but “non-threatening” plane episode on 9-11-11.

Never forget!


Remembering 9-11: Just released 9/11 air traffic controller tapes

You can listen to the just released 9-11 air traffic controller tapes.

They bring back a few memories of the day, but always worth remembering the events and people of that day!

From KRMG.com:

1 ** Peter Zalewski, a Boston controller can’t reach American Airlines flight 11.

2 ** Flight attendant Betty Ong is on-board flight 11. She calls AA reservations from a seatback phone on the plane.

3 ** Controllers hear one of the hijackers aboard AA flight 11.

4 ** Controllers realize they have lost AA flight 11.

6 ** Controllers are talking to United 93 when there is a commotion in the cockpit.

7 ** Officials now realize United 93 has crashed.

8 ** Permission is given to shoot down commercial aircraft if needed.
