According to our news French fighter aircrafts have struck against Islamist rebels in Gao and Kidal in north Mali. At least sixty Islamists down. Russia supports the attacks. And the Islamist leaders now claim that France is at war with Islam. That´s sweet music to many Europeans ears. The expansion of Islamism must be stopped. So, Hollande may be a disaster with the domestic affairs but this one he got right.

I wasn’t aware that the French were still willing to fight. It’s great news, but I’m also wondering if USA is going asked to come bail them out.

“Conservatives to go to the mat on default, shutdown”

We will NOT default on our debt if the debt ceiling isn’t raised. There is plenty of money coming in to the leviathan to pay the interest on our debt – especially after all the taxes Congress just raised. Unfortunately, the minions of Preezy Revenge and his state run media will start banging that default drum to agitate the low information voters who still believe these frauds have America’s best interest at heart.

Heard Senator Mike Lee try to get the point across to Bill Hemmer on Fox that failure to raise the debt limit does not equal default, yet Hemmer still kept parroting the words of the regime’s mouthpiece, Politico.

Mr. President:
How do you occupy your time when you aren’t in front of the cameras, golfing, vacationing or, as in the case of your first term – campaigning full-time?

Oops, sorry – wrong thread.

But an excellent question!

The UN security council will discuss the matter today but I believe that France is fine doing it alone. The people in Malis capital Bamato now support and celebrate their old colonial power, France. I don´t think that the US will be asked for help. Europe must learn to take care of military matters themselves. And maybe we are not sure of Obamas convictions – would he really go after Islamists openly ? ( Osama bin Laden doesn´t count ).
