  1. First!

    So, to fill the space I borrowed from last thread

    Hear there is a lot of micro managing of the military “effort” in ME. Is Obama still picking the bombing targets personally? Probably asks for suggestions at these fundraisers — or maybe it’s a party game — Target of the Day?

      • That is a good example. I suggested sling shot attacks yesterday.
        Ambassdor Bolton (On Fox), called it Tank Planking. Which is ineffective.
        Another example would be if o order them to spit!
        O has to understand our military personnal, even if they are way up in the sky are fighting. There is a threat to them, and the military that are on the ground. No it they may not be revealing what they are doing besides advising. There safety has to be in high regard as just as well.

  2. GOP braces for 2016 free-for-all. The R’s will need a miracle to scrape through on Nov. 4th! The tide is turning: Grimes leads McConnell 46-44, while Dems have taken small leads in Iowa and Colorado! Scott Walker is in trouble! If the R’s can’t pull off the mid-terms given the unprecedented failure of Obama, it’s over for 2016. It will be a walk in the park for Bill and Hill.

    Six years of non-stop pummeling Congress and the Repubs has finally paid off for BHO. Mission accomplished. The R’s are polling lower than Adolph Hitler (just joking!) thanks to Boehner and the rest of the RINOs. They abandoned their only chance for victory – Obamacare – in lieu of ISIS. The 2015 ObamaCare sign-ups begin on Nov. 15 (after mid-terms) with massive cancellations and higher premiums expected. Why are they not yelling from the roof tops? They can’t seem to walk and chew gum at the same time. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is their only specialty.

        • That poll about Grimes is based on a RealClearPolitics composite which included an outlier poll which drove the numbers way up. That may be the operative in those other races you mention too. (I just read a day or two ago that Walker had opened up a lead!) With the election still four weeks from today, the media is doing everything it can to drum up excitement and interest.

          Just vote and pray that November 4 is a bad weather day and the Democrats all stay home.

        • My hope, is that MSM is incorrect with the Poll numbers.
          By the way. Are we going to get purple, pink, blue, red, orange, fingers after we vote? If not an ink receipt given, would satisfy me.
          However I must say that are A LOT OF PEOPLE IN OFFICE on both sides, WHO I feel will want to spill their guts, and write books just like Pinatta, done the road. Little to Late!!!
          I also feel a lot of them at least should be writing in a sealed journal for their children, grandchildren, etc. explaining why they sat by and watch this whirlpool grow. Why do this?
          The reason is there are going to be many, many people who are going to ask in whisper, Why didn’t you, or anyone say anything, before it was to late?

  3. Turkey is watching Syria fall/fail or more to the point Turkey is in a win-win situation. Turkey was the last caliphate in the neighborhood (1924). Me thinks they’re warming up to the idea that after 90 years, they rather like the idea of being the focus of attention again. The big question is what happens if ISIS crosses into Turkey as a NATO member.

  4. U.S. officials are prohibited from engaging in debates about Islam, and as a result will need to rely on partners in the Muslim world for this part of the ideological struggle,” he said in an email interview. SNIP

    Forbidden by whom?

    • Lots of luck with that. I just read that the imam, S. Webb, who is at the Boston mosque where the Tsarnaev brothers attended and who was at the OK mosque of the beheader, has apologized to ISIS for “demonizing” them. There are no EFFECTIVE moderates in Islam: they are either in agreement with ISIS or else they are shaking in their boots.

      • And Obama sent someone to Ferguson mosque — thanks for helping — after storm. That would be the storm that took Mrs. Wufford’s house I think. And none of the clean up pix show muslims hard at work. But any opportunity to build up Muslims in this country will not go unattended by Obama, Holder and their ilk.

  5. This ought to warm your cockles. I emailed the AZ public health people about my theory that my daughter’s arm paralysis could be D68 in an adult–could be. Some nurse snooted back that I was all wet because there were no confirmed cases in the state. Welllll, I was thinking this might be one… She said it must be very frustrating for me–perhaps I should consult a medical provider. At that pt, I gave up. Yes, these are the people who will control our destiny.
