  1. Wow, Obama only has 15% approval from our military? I’m sure that represents only his politcally appointed military leaders who can’t say sh*t even if their mouths were full of it. Even in a poll.

    Makes me wonder if 15% is closer to a reality of the other political polls like Gallup? Obama’s not only crushed the spirit of the US military, but the rest of us as well. :(

    • That “15%” is most likely from all of the suck-up, weak-willed, political CYA Generals & Admirals who need to say nice things about the Obama regime to keep their cushy-luxury Flag jobs at the Pentagon and inside the Beltway.

      -Did you know the US Navy has more Admirals (most who do nothing put push paper) than warships… How pathetic is that!

    • I hope so too. They might want to visit the Repository of Republican Backbones located in a building just off the Washington Mall. Likely, they will find what they need to be real leaders there.

    • So far they are talking tough.
      It takes 2/3rds of both chambers to override Obama’s veto.
      The house can do it rather easily, the senate is iffy.
      It will take 60 votes to override in the senate and even though the reps have the majority it will take some dems to join them.

      You can see the vote results here;

      • I had to run some errands. I was listening to Rush. He feels that this is being handled tough now to make all the voters happy.
        Than they will cave back in a couple of days and satify the people who donate lots of money. He feels a lot of those people are for the amnesty.

  2. Sessions published a good 25 point talking sheet for Repubs. I called my Senators office (Rubio) and suggested he read it before sponsoring legislation with Jeff Flake and some Dems. Kudos to Sessions.

    Mike Lee — counseling Mitch McConnell — that could be good or bad. Don’t know — at least a voice.

    Obama will never ever say Islamic terrorists — he is holding his breath and his face is turning blue.

    Hope there are no ramifications for the military but good on Drudge for splashing that lack of troop support across the page.

    Only people worse than Obama are the media and the Dems trying to cover and make all this nonsense into lemonade that is way too bitter to drink .

  3. Just caught a snippet on OReilly that suggested there might have been a call back to WDC for Holder and that is why he did not complete the Paris march. Maybe. Not unpossible.
