Vice President Biden said Thursday it is his “hope and expectation” that the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison facility in Cuba will close before President Obama leaves office.
Biden spoke during a press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven in Stockholm.
President Obama appears to be relentlessly determined, no matter the cost to national security, to follow through on his “promise” to close Gitmo. This is pettiness in the extreme, the determination of one egocentric man to not have his will denied.
Obama already has set loose from Gitmo, or sent to countries where they will be less securely held, many dangerous bad guys. Some have rejoined the battlefield and are fighting alongside other Islamist militants overseas. Others may be coming soon to a shopping mall, movie complex, megachurch, or skyscraper near you.
Now it can be revealed: A team of investigative journalists at the Washington Free Beaconwith time on their hands reveal the truth about Clinton’s “test of strength” demonstration in which she opened of a jar of pickles on the Jimmy Kimmel Show.

I know, it’s confusing, but these people are much smarter than you and me and don’t worry, they’ve got it all sorted out.
Bill Clinton, though sounding increasingly frail, still has undiminished ability to try to con the American people. Here are his comments trying to explain away Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and put words in FBI Director Comey’s mouth, cleverly juxtaposed by the Washington Free Beacon with the actual statements by Comey.
This is a pretty good idea, I think, because a lot of the problem he is facing is that people don’t feel secure with him as president. So this addresses two things, Trump’s personal weakness, particularly with women, who don’t know if they want to give him power, and that the world under the Obama-Clinton foreign policy has become a very insecure place and a strong leader can make it safer.
The House Oversight Committee released a video showing very clearly the lies told by Hillary Clinton before the panel by contrasting her statements with those of FBI Director Comey. There are several of them, and they are striking. Is Hillary Clinton to big for perjury? Continue Reading
Well, if you’ve got some money, hide it. Here was Hillary Clinton screeching Tuesday in Pennsylvania about how she wants to plunder the rich to pay for her many new government spending schemes. How are we going to pay for it? Well I’ll tell you how we’re going to pay for it. We’re going where… Continue Reading
