In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Obama has used drones for the first time in six months.

    He and his Chicago gang have been stating over and over the reasons for the Obama Five Taliban trade as “the war in Afghanistan is over”.

    Is the war in Afghanistan being confused with the war on terrorism?
    Is this why there has been no drone use in six months because we have effectively shut down the war on terror so he can fight his war on America and American people by inviting the hoards of uneducated unskilled Central Americans to our land?

    I bet Obama has his SEIU in Central America loading these invaders onto buses and sending them north.

    HOW DO these busloads of Central Americans get through Mexico without papers? Is this being coordinated by Obama and the JustUs Dept?

      1. Their southern border is militarized, right? They let them through going north but refuse to accept them to go south. Thanks mexico.

  2. I saw a picture of ISIS rolling into a town in Iraq, lined up on a small road. It would have been an easy task to send in some air power and take out the whole convoy. I would have looked like the roads during the first Iraq war. Too late now though.

  3. There is a picture on the upper left of DRUDGE of Iraqi women and children. At first glance my brain processed it as our new children at the border.

    About the children (who might be swept out of the American psyche with the news of Iraq) someone told me there was an announcement that the government is looking for child care workers for them. Nannys I guess.

    Nothing surprises me.

    Any American still in Iraq is an idiot. If we haven’t evacuated them all by now …

    1. I read yesterday that we were warning US citizens from going there. I read that on the internet. I did not hear anyone say that on TV.
      As well what are they doing right now to get the US citizens out of Iraq? I did not see a picture of the Airport there with people lined up to get home.
      Finally what are they doing right now to help the people that work at our Embassy?
      The money it will take to drive all the immigrants back home today, is a LOT less than what you will paying for their upbringing here, if they stay.
      Than O (HA) has to make a public statement that my Welcome Mat comments was a mistake. HA HA

  4. Grahm: What I saw scared the Hell of of me.
    McCain: Need to replace National Security Team.
    Just a couple of statments from Republicans.
    Than there is O rambling this week how this is the best time to live in.
    (Note I am searching for his long senctence made about that.)

    1. Plus I just heard any illegal children that can be reunited with the family (that are illegal as well) will be done.
      Yes of course reunite all of them, Than stick them all on a bus back home.
      If they want to come here get in the line that many of our families stood in YEARS ago.
      Finally O has to make a statement today explaining that even though our Border Patrol are babysittying I feel our Country is still safe. sarc
