    • Below a snip of an interview with Chris Matthews. Oh boy, are we in trouble.

      HARF: We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether —

      • I would throw that philosophy right back in his face questioning why his station is sucking wind behind all the rest.

        Matthews is an idiot.

        “to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether —”

        OK Chrissy, with the thrill up your leg, go talk your ass off to the Muslim killers.

        You wouldn’t last a minute.

      • Man, is she a dumb b…., they don’t need jobs, they have millions and maybe billions of dollars!!!! How dumb is this woman? In the State Dept.? Only in the Obama admin. could they have such a woman who speaks so indescribably dumb??? She has a degree? I just keep repeating, how dumb she is, hard to believe she said “jobs”? These people only read their bible, they are uneducated barbarians and have been for THOUSANDS of years, doesn’t she know this? You can’t reason with animals like this, she has got to be kidding to talk like that? Dumbest thing I ever heard and works for a “President”? No wonder we are in trouble. She should know that the only way to stop this insane, blood, murdering is to carpet bomb them like we had to do in Japan. There is no other way but to wipe them out. And with Obama, so many more people will be murdered because of his idiocy also. He doesn’t give a shoot about anyone getting murdered, he is a sociopath. He must be impeached and/or thrown out. He caused the middle east to go on fire because of how dumb he is and the dead are his fault for helping to get rid of the dictators who at least kept the middle east calm and in check. Dumb as they come, and dangerous, Putin is right about Obama.

    • Screw that. I say we try Colonel Ralph Peters’ suggestion:

      http://insider.foxnews.com/2015/01/09/lt-col-peters-plan-fight-terror-leave-behind-smoking-ruins-crying-widows

      Jan 09, 2015
      As seen on The O’Reilly Factor

      Lt. Col. Ralph Peters tonight gave a detailed plan to Bill O’Reilly on how he would fight terror.

      “One: You accept that you are in a war. Two: You name the enemy, Islamist terrorists. Three: You get the lawyers off the battlefield […] you accept there will be collateral damage and you do not apologize for it. You do not nation build, you don’t try to hold ground. You go wherever in the world the terrorists are and you kill them, you do your best to exterminate them, and then you leave, and you leave behind smoking ruins and crying widows. If in five or 10 years, they reconstitute and you gotta go back, you go back and do the same thing, and you never, never, never send American troops into a war you don’t mean to win,” Peters said.

      • Yep,….
        Let them know who we are and what we mean when we say stop it.

        This president will never allow that to happen, and by the time he is out of office the damage done will be beyond the capabilities of any one country to repair.

        This man is a Muslim puss intent on destroying this Country and unless he is removed he will continue to allow the ME to fester and this Country to wallow in the trough of mediocrity.

        America needs a leader not a coward.

        Anyone can claim that a line was drawn.
        Few will stop you if you step over it.

  2. Schedule for the rest if this week:

    On Wednesday, the President will deliver remarks at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism to highlight domestic and international efforts to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting, or inspiring individuals or groups in the United States and abroad to commit acts of violence. This summit will build on the strategy the White House released in August of 2011, Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States, the first national strategy to prevent violent extremism domestically.

    On Thursday, the President will go to the State Department to deliver remarks to a high-level Ministerial as part of the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism. Afterward, the President will travel to Chicago to announce the Pullman National Monument. Further details about the President’s travel to Illinois will be made available in the coming days.

    On Friday, the President will deliver remarks at the General Session of the 2015 DNC Winter Meeting at the Hyatt Regency in Washington, DC.

    I wonder what’s going on in Chicago that he’s scheduled some BS “official business” there. Probably a fundraiser.

  3. OT to Girly1 – a few threads back, I posted a reply to your comment about the strange comments with a title and no screen name showing up on some threads. I’m pretty sure those comments are just “trackbacks”, which is simply when another blog links to one of Keith’s posts. In the old format, the trackbacks used to be listed right below his post and before the comment section. But, since Keith changed to this format, I noticed that one of the changes is how the trackbacks now show up sprinkled through the comment section. That’s just another feature of this new and “improved” version not to like.

  4. I wonder if President Selfie Stick is going to invite the Danish PM to the WH soon? Remember this from Mandela’s memorial:

    Tweets from Mark Knoller tonight:

    Mark Knoller @markknoller
    Pres Obama voiced solidarity today in phone call with Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt about Saturday’s terror shootings in Copenhagen.
    7:01pm – 16 Feb 15

    WH says the US and Danish leaders agreed to work against attacks on freedom of expression and anti-Semitic violence.
    7:07pm – 16 Feb 15

    Pres Obama is welcoming Denmark’s participation this week in the WH Summit on Countering Violent Extremism, which POTUS addresses on Wed.
    7:09pm – 16 Feb 15

    • From Fox:

      “A federal judge has granted a request by 26 states to temporarily block President Obama’s executive action on illegal immigration while a lawsuit challenging the order makes its way through the courts .”

    • It’s now linked on Drudge:

      http://apnews.myway.com/article/20150217/us–immigration_lawsuit-c50009fcae.html

      A federal judge in South Texas on Monday temporarily blocked President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, giving a coalition of 26 states time to pursue a lawsuit that aims to permanently stop the orders.

      U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s decision comes after a hearing in Brownsville in January and puts on hold Obama’s orders that could spare as many as five million people who are in the U.S. illegally from deportation.

      Hanen wrote in a memorandum accompanying his order that the lawsuit should go forward and that without a preliminary injunction the states will “suffer irreparable harm in this case.”

      “The genie would be impossible to put back into the bottle,” he wrote, adding that he agreed with the plaintiffs’ argument that legalizing the presence of millions of people is a “virtually irreversible” action.

  5. Wow, Look at that sham work schedule. Someone partied a little to hearty over the holiday weekend. Yeah right, Dictator Obama will be awake at 10:00 am this morning for his presidential briefing of all the latest sports news. What a wastrel.

    • I continue to maintain that “Receives Daily Briefing” simply means that’s the time the PDB is sent to his iPad. He’s not in the Oval Office for a real briefing, even though it’s usually on the schedule fairly late, (10 am or later).

      The best indication of that is the fact that his daily schedule has changed in his second term. Prior to his re-election, most days had the PDB on the schedule, followed thirty minutes later by “Meets with senior advisors”, or occasionally some other meeting. That’s very rarely on the schedule anymore, which I think is a clear sign that he’s not in the Oval Office for his PDB in the mornings. Almost all of he meetings are in the afternoons these days. Lazy PO(t)(u)S.

      • Lazy and spends our money, millions of dollars of it. He meets with no one, works with no one, only meets with Muslim Brotherhood, which is treason. Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization who also kills Christians and others for their religion.

  6. So, last year the separate February vacations were followed by a long weekend in Key Largo to kick off the Moochettes’ spring break. Of course, that was then followed by an extremely expensive spring break trip to China for Moochelle, the Moochettes, and Mooch’s mother.

    Well, it seems this year Queen Moochelle has decided that the taxpayers should treat her and the Moochettes to spring break in Japan:

    • Michelle Antoinette is going to travel extensively these last two years. They absolutely cannot afford this lifestyle on their own, so they’ll take full advantage of every perk known to man before they have to vacate the WH.

        • I’m sure the plane will be so overused it will be in tatters. The WH rugs will be worn threadbare from all the partying. Her garden of good and evil will be picked bare. The WH brewery will bottle exorbitant amounts of beer for Obama’s to pack home.

          I wonder if the Obama’s will disassemble their swing set and take it with them although the girls are too old to play on it. Maybe they’ll auction it on eBay to help fund their lifestyle addiction. LOL

  7. Nice job Barry; way to “ease back in” after a three day golf weekend in Cali. Only two meetings; that’s a pro screw off at work there.

  8. Washington D.C. staff can stay home today do to weather. Paper shufflers, bureaucrats, non-producers, get to lay back. Which could mean we citizens will have a day of reprieve, temporary pardon from the tonnage of bull-plucky that is normally shipped.

  9. Look who Obama has partnered with for his Wednesday summit on anti-terrorism. It’s appalling that he’ll roll out the red carpet for ISIS friendly groups yet he refuses to talk to Netanyahu. Here’s a short snip of a report about the summit.

    >>>
    A Boston-based hub of terrorism associated with a top Islamic State propagandist and producer of hostage-beheading videos will receive the red carpet treatment at an anti-terrorism conference at the Obama White House this Wednesday.

    The so-called Summit on Countering Violent Extremism comes as President Obama seeks formal authorization from Congress to wage war against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL).

    The terrorist-friendly Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which is a known front for Islamist terrorist groups, operates mosques in and around Boston.

    • I just heard on Fox, that there will be no mention of Islamic terrorism at the Summit.
      Giuliani spoke well on Fox a little while ago.
      Oliver North, Krauthamer, O’Reilly, Laura Ingram all made very good points regarding how this is being handled I heard on Fox this morning as well

  10. Imformative & good points from everyone so far. I took notice that he is meeting with Defense Carter at 3:00. The whole day should be in discussion of our safety.

  11. EGYPT HAS 400 JET FIGHTERS,4,500 TANKS,7500 APC 900 ARTILLERY PIECES,250 MLRS ,4,000 OTHER FIGHTING VECHILES, A 450,000 man army
    60 ATTACK HELICOPTERS THROW IN 100 ITALIAN JET FIGHTERS 2 AIRCRAFT CARRIERS AND 10,000 TROOPS USE AIRSTRIKES FOR 10 DAYS NON STOP USING OVER 300 JET FIGHTERS AND OVER 80 HELICOPTERS them crush the reat with your massive army Egypt and 10,000 ITALIAN TROOPS AND 50,000 EGYPTIAN TROOPS KISS YOUR A$$ GOODBYE

  12. Maybe the President can apologize to Secretary Carter for Joe Biden’s inappropriate behavior at the ceremony yesterday. VP Biden needs a strong refresher course on harassing behaviors in the workplace!
