  1. The News The MSM Is Afraid To Print:
    President Obama is being pressured to “do something” by members of Congress in response to information that Syria has used WMDs on their own people. Afraid to commit to anything, MrO has his staff composing a strongly worded letter of condemnation that will be sent to the Syrian leader.

    After five years of demonization and insults, MrObama’s clumsy attempts to make amends with certain Repub members of Congress have failed. Members of his own party who are up for re-election in 2014 are no longer following the Dem party line leaving the President no choice but to accuse all of them to be “liars”. Other Dems, fearing the backlash of the voters for the passing of Obamacare, have chosen not to fight, but to retire from Congress to take up fishing.

    MrObama will nominate Mayor Foxx to head the Transportation department because he is a Black Dem, and once oversaw the installation of an electric tram in his city.

    VPBiden and former Alaskan Governor Palin are both quoted as if anyone in DC listens to them. MrBiden’s claim that SenMcCain could have won the election in 2008 means nothing in the current political scene. MrsPalin’s opinion of the WHCA dinner won’t make any difference in next year’s gathering of journalists and Hollywood glitterati.

    We are Brietbart.

  2. “Lawmakers urge toughness on Syria . . . Washington Times”

    Sunni Obama’s kinda on the fence on this one. While he is rather fond of burnishing his “tough on Muslim” image every time an opportunity arises for him to kill a hated Shi’ite instead of a blessed Sunni, Assad muddies the water by being an Alawite. Without Hilz around to explain to him what an Alawite is (Kerry doens’t even know the proper names of countires, so it’s probably “Syriastan” to him), and the fact that Syria is majority Sunni and the army is majority Sunni, and Assad is married to a Sunni, Obama’s not sure if he should “pull the trigger” or not.

    And, our “defender of women” Prezzy might have a little ‘splainin to do to his feminist cohort if he were to beat Assad down to the point where the rebels unleash THIS charm offensive;

    “An Islamic cleric has cleared the path for rebels in Syria, who are trying to oust President Bashar Assad, to rape women, so long as they’re non-Sunni.

    Salafi Sheikh Yasir al-Ajlawni, who hails from Jordan but who lived in Damascus for 17 years, sent a message via YouTube: It’s a “legitimate fatwa” for Muslims waging war against Mr. Assad and trying to put in place a Sharia government to “capture and have sex with” Alawites and other non-Sunni, non-Muslim women, Human Events reports. Mr. Assad is part of the Alawites sect.

    In the video, the cleric called non-Muslim women by their Arabic term, “melk al-yamin,” Human Events reports. The term is from the Koran and refers to non-Muslim sex slaves, Human Events says.”

    Hopey doesn’t have much of an issue with it personally (they’re Shi’ite, after all, and therefore subhuman apostates to him – plus he has little interest in women himself, although you can sympathize to a degree with THIS if Michelle is the woman in his life), but he DOES have to OCCASIONALLY do something to try to keep his coalition of the dysfunctional together. After all, the only thing that unites militant feminist NOW members, jihadi Muslims, and Hollywood actors together in the Democrat party is a shared hatred for America; tip the scale by killing ONE sacred cow (NOT a reference to NOW, but maybe should be…) and you might have trouble with keeping the whole thing glued together until it’s too late…

    This is what Obama’s agonizing about. Like at Benghazi, it takes awhile to determine the most IMPORTANT part – What Is Best For Obama? Until we do THAT, we do NOTHING.

    So, good luck with that “urging toughness” thing. He’ll kill some Shi’ites somewhere when he’s d@mn good and ready, whether they have something to do with chemical weapons or whatever or not; but, FIRST, political calculus; THEN, useless, self-serving action, Mr. “Lawmaker”. Geez, you guys are slow! Haven’t you figured at least THIS much out yet?

    • I was just moseying over here to link that pix. Thanks. God bless First Lt. Melissa Stockwell and all those brave men and women who serve our country and protect us.

  3. The exposure of the Pigford fraud is one tiny ray of sunlight in a dreary forecast. Coming from the NYT is even more surprising, but maybe they don’t like rural fraud taking money away which could be used for urban fraud.

  4. Lawmakers urge Toughness on Syria

    In case you missed it, the red lines have turned ‘yellow’ as the WH sent little Chuckie Todd out this morning on NBC to explain that “Obama is not ready yet. There are no answers.” Obama ‘regrets’ that he spoke publically about ‘red lines’.

    If this had been Bush, the LSM would be all over him!

  5. White Flight Caused Romney Loss

    Wrong! It was the worst case of voter fraud in history! The regime spent FOUR years in the 5 battleground states and didn’t rest until every campaign worker voted at least 5 times and registered every dead person. They topped it off by sending operatives to every HS and college cafeteria to register everyone 18 and older….and then chaufferred them to the voting booth. Did anyone check absentee ballots – the ballot of choice for illegals? I think not!

  6. My two cents. We are way too late in Syria. Everyone we could have supported and allied with in opposition is already compromised from having had to turn elsewhere since we were mute. It’s sad. It’s even more tragic when you think that our Americans were murdered there without the President lifting a finger to protect them. I would rather support the defense of Jordan and Israel against Syria. From a realist point of view something has to be done about getting control of the chemical warfare capacity — I don’t see that we have a way in. Obama botched this big time by voting present.

    • Obama showed his cowardice in 2009 by standing with the Iranian regime during the Green Revolution. He is despised in Egypt for his support of the MB. Why should we expect him to do anything in Syria? He is still trying to cover up his treasonous actions in Benghazi. And now Obama and Holder are going to treat two Chechan terrorists as two American guys who just robbed a bank! He’s hopeless…and dangerous.

      • Standing by silently during the 2009 Iranian uprising is the worst thing Obama has done on the world stage. Not only did he cost the lives of thousands of young Iranians thirsting for freedom but he sent a keynote message to Muslim militants that he would never interfere.

    • I really don’t know which side the United States should take in this civil war. There really is no good choice here: you either choose the Al Qaeda backed rebels or the classic Middle Eastern dictator. The rebels are going for the poison gas themselves and would not hesitate to use it. This is another meme of the same bad choices we have been faced with all over the Muslim world, sometimes siding with the dictators over the rebels as in Afghanistan and at other times doing the reverse as in Egypt and Libya and now apparently Syria.

      Any choice is a bad choice except standing by our overwhelmingly threatened ally in the region, Israel, but I have doubts Obama would do even that.

  7. Regarding your statement that Bush in some ways was a great president, you need to exlain that to me. What in the world makes you think he was a great presient?
