"There in lies the problem"

"It is the right thing to do to by the American people to stop these tactics!"


Here! Here!

Effigy of Allah desecrated! Muslims Outraged!

Well not exactly....Allah. Just Jesus Christ.

Allah's not offended, therefore, there is no Muslim outrage. And what's worse? This supposed art is being supported and paid for by American tax dollars and it is being displayed at the Smithsonian in Washington DC.

And no, there is no Christian outrage. There's not even any taxpayer outrage. How cowed we are.....
The federally funded National Portrait Gallery, one of the museums of the Smithsonian Institution, is currently showing an exhibition that features images of an ant-covered Jesus, male genitals, naked brothers kissing, men in chains, Ellen DeGeneres grabbing her breasts, and a painting the Smithsonian itself describes in the show's catalog as "homoerotic."The exhibit, “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” opened on Oct. 30 and will run throughout the Christmas Season, closing on Feb. 13.


UPDATE

After numerous complaints to congress and the senate and threats to pull the funding and launch a congressional investigation, the video was finally pulled.

A union hacks position on the Obama Fed pay freeze

This guy covers all the bases and really spreads the manure thick.

Here are some reaction statements to President Obama's proposal to freeze the pay for some federal employees. Check back later for more reaction.

American Federation of Government Employees National President John Gage
on the pay freeze proposal. From a phone interview with Fox News Radio White House Correspondent Mike Majchrowitz.

"It seems like a P.R. stunt."

"Sacrifice is one thing and our federal employees do it all the time but the real problem we have is that it seems like a P.R. stunt."

"Cutting federal employee pay is really going to do nothing for the deficit but I just hate to see the President coming out and reinforcing this issue that federal employees are over-paid which is not true."

"What is going on in our country is really a jobs problem and an income problem and cutting wages just doesn't seem to be helpful."

"It doesn't seem to be part of any plan it just looks like a panic gesture and I am very disappointed with the administration."

"It's hard recruiting federal workers especially to get some of the top-notch candidates and when people see that there are going to be pay freezes and the pay is not going to be steady, I think it really hurts retention and recruitment."

No one said anything about cutting federal employees pay. What was said, was that there should be a two year freeze while this administration attempts to figure out which end is up.

As to whether it is a PR stunt? I tend to agree. In the absence of substantive cuts to entitlements and ear marks and a freeze and roll back on all congressional spending, this policy will result in only negligible results (if any) in lowering the federal budget.
He arrived in town on Monday of last week with an enormous entourage. He chartered three flights to JFK, arrived with a massive security team and a film crew, and left the airport in a convoy of 40 vehicles, including 20 for luggage alone.
The president? Nope, but damn close judging by the size of the entourage. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has taken over an entire VIP wing of a prominent New York hospital.

"Patients are grumbling that they have been moved out to other areas of the hospital, and that despite there being a number of unused VIP treatment rooms, they can't be moved into them because they are all reserved for the king of Saudi Arabia."
The king underwent surgery for a blood clot and a slipped disc last week. Witnesses told us his security army is a visible presence both outside and inside the hospital.
One law enforcement source told us that Abdullah -- who was visited in Saudi Arabia by four Cornell doctors who advised him he had to have the surgery in New York -- is a generous donor to the hospital and visited a month prior to his surgery.
Maybe the king can catch up on his reading of the Wikileaks debacle while he is recovering. I wonder if the president or Hillary will pay him a visit. I am betting that the president will.

Obama commited to fulfilling Zakat

A 22 year old Army PFC brings down American intelligence

Xtnyoda nailed it in my opinion. The release of these documents has absolutely nothing to do with some lowly 22 year old Army PFC. And it has everything to do with a corrupt administration dead set on destroying this nation.

Administration Orders Review
Bristling over the unauthorized release of more than a quarter million classified State Department documents, the Obama White House on Monday ordered a government-wide review of how agencies safeguard sensitive information.

The weekend release of documents reflecting, in some cases, unflattering assessments of world leaders has caused embarrassment to the administration. The director of the White House's Office of Management and Budget, Jacob Lew, said in ordering the agency-wide assessment Monday that the disclosures are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

Publication of the secret memos and documents made public by the online whistle-blower Wikileaks Sunday amplified widespread global alarm about Iran's nuclear ambitions. It also unveiled occasional U.S. pressure tactics aimed at hot spots in Afghanistan, Pakistan and North Korea. The leaks disclosed bluntly candid impressions from both diplomats and other world leaders about America's allies and foes.

Review? There will be no review. Aside from the sham that will be performed and released by the government for the benefit of the media.

Lee Harvey Oswald's claim to fame as the biggest patsy of all time is now in jeopardy in my opinion. This 19 year old Army PFC now claims that title hands down. I just hope some other government operative doesn't kill him.

In the mean time, the people will be spoon fed this pablum and the complicit media will support and distribute the lie that all of this is the result of the actions of one lowly Army PFC. And Americans in the large part? They will believe that an Army PFC actually has this level of access to national secrets and the ability to release them.

Slowly slowly catchy monkeys.

Was a terror plot really stopped in Oregon?



I may be wrong, but it seems to me that this is the second if not the third supposed terrorist plot broken up by the FBI since Obama took office.

And in each instance, there is a certain commonality of evidence. The suspect/s involved are young Muslims. Each of whom were contacted by undercover operatives and agents and the FBI, who ultimately provided them with inert devices and led them to believe that they would in fact be part of some larger master plot to detonate these provided explosives.

How many similar instances were revealed in the seven years after 9/11 during the Bush administration. None that I can remember. Which begs the question....."if the Bush administration didn't find these terrorists? Then they must have either never existed, or the must have succeeded." They didn't succeed apparently, because they didn't exist. But suddenly they do exist.

In law enforcement, there is something known as "shooting on a baited field." In other words, setting up a circumstance whereas potential criminals frequenting the area will appear and immediately choose to become involved in a crime of their own volition. It is key to the successful prosecution of these arrests of the opportunist criminal, that the police be able to demonstrate that they did nothing to influence the actions of the suspect prior to or during the commission of the crime. To do otherwise is considered "entrapment" and all evidence gained via entrapment is inadmissible.

Therefore, I have to wonder. Was this kid in Oregon truly acting on his own? Or was he basically recruited by undercover informants and paid operatives for the FBI. An FBI that later decided to work the patsy and provide him with everything that he needed to accomplish his supposed terrorist desires. Only to have the rug pulled out from under the operation and the media splash at the appropriate time with all the pertinent details of the arrest.

I have no doubt that this kid may have been exposed to radical Islam. As a matter of fact, I am of the opinion that every Muslim has been and is being exposed to radical Islam on a regular basis. The question is, "are we really getting the seriously committed zealots? Or are we simply creating circumstances where we can claim to have been on the job and pursuing our terrorist adversaries?"

As the evidence unfolds, I am more and more of the opinion that our FBI and Justice department, are shopping for cases to be made and then held up as examples of the extraordinary efforts of this administration to address the global terrorist threat. Meanwhile, home grown Muslims are targeted for "special operations," while we turn a blind eye to our borders and allow the far mor committed and far more dangerous middle eastern terrorist to enter and operate freely inside this country.

So as you watch the news coverage of this Somali kid's court appearance in Oregon today, pay attention to the evidence being released to the media. How did he come to be at that tree lighting and in control of a van full of 55 gallon drums of (inert) explosives that were somehow "provided for him." Then ask yourself if anything has really been accomplished by this arrest. Or is what we are seeing nothing more than the staged arrests of those being duped into the FBI's net of creating the opportunity and then arresting the manufactured terrorists.

Treason, justified and explained

The big news story late on a Sunday afternoon, is the release of a quarter of a million classified documents, leaked to the media by Wikileaks.

The purpose? As explained by the New York Times is below.

The Decision to Publish Diplomatic Documents

The articles published today and in coming days are based on thousands of United States embassy cables, the daily reports from the field intended for the eyes of senior policy makers in Washington. The New York Times and a number of publications in Europe were given access to the material several weeks ago and agreed to begin publication of articles based on the cables Sunday online. The Times believes that the documents serve an important public interest, illuminating the goals, successes, compromises and frustrations of American diplomacy in a way that other accounts cannot match.
So....illuminating the goals of our clandestine efforts to protect this country are in the public interest according to the NYT.

Never mind that these releases undermine our nations safety and leave us in jeopardy of further terrorist attacks on this nation.

Another TSA Outrage

I am re-posting this in it's entirety, as as many Americans as possible need to read it and contemplate what is actually going on in this country, as it concerns the supposed prevention of terrorism.

UPDATE: I’m getting a lot of emails asking if this is actually true and is this person actually someone I know. (1) Yes it is true — it is too absurd to be made up. (2) Yes, I know the person.
——–
A friend of mine sent me this about his TSA experience. He, unlike most of us, was coming back into the country from Afghanistan on a military charter.
——–
As the Chalk Leader for my flight home from Afghanistan, I witnessed the following:
When we were on our way back from Afghanistan, we flew out of Baghram Air Field. We went through customs at BAF, full body scanners (no groping), had all of our bags searched, the whole nine yards.
Our first stop was Shannon, Ireland to refuel. After that, we had to stop at Indianapolis, Indiana to drop off about 100 folks from the Indiana National Guard. That’s where the stupid started.
First, everyone was forced to get off the plane–even though the plane wasn’t refueling again. All 330 people got off that plane, rather than let the 100 people from the ING get off. We were filed from the plane to a holding area. No vending machines, no means of escape. Only a male/female latrine.
It’s probably important to mention that we were ALL carrying weapons. Everyone was carrying an M4 Carbine (rifle) and some, like me, were also carrying an M9 pistol. Oh, and our gunners had M-240B machine guns. Of course, the weapons weren’t loaded. And we had been cleared of all ammo well before we even got to customs at Baghram, then AGAIN at customs.
The TSA personnel at the airport seriously considered making us unload all of the baggage from the SECURE cargo hold to have it reinspected. Keep in mind, this cargo had been unpacked, inspected piece by piece by U.S. Customs officials, resealed and had bomb-sniffing dogs give it a one-hour run through. After two hours of sitting in this holding area, the TSA decided not to reinspect our Cargo–just to inspect us again: Soldiers on the way home from war, who had already been inspected, reinspected and kept in a SECURE holding area for 2 hours. Ok, whatever. So we lined up to go through security AGAIN.
This is probably another good time to remind you all that all of us were carrying actual assault rifles, and some of us were also carrying pistols.
So we’re in line, going through one at a time. One of our Soldiers had his Gerber multi-tool. TSA confiscated it. Kind of ridiculous, but it gets better. A few minutes later, a guy empties his pockets and has a pair of nail clippers. Nail clippers. TSA informs the Soldier that they’re going to confiscate his nail clippers. The conversation went something like this:
TSA Guy: You can’t take those on the plane.
Soldier: What? I’ve had them since we left country.
TSA Guy: You’re not suppose to have them.
Soldier: Why?
TSA Guy: They can be used as a weapon.
Soldier: [touches butt stock of the rifle] But this actually is a weapon. And I’m allowed to take it on.
TSA Guy: Yeah but you can’t use it to take over the plane. You don’t have bullets.
Soldier: And I can take over the plane with nail clippers?
TSA Guy: [awkward silence]
Me: Dude, just give him your damn nail clippers so we can get the f**k out of here. I’ll buy you a new set.
Soldier: [hands nail clippers to TSA guy, makes it through security]
This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine guns–but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.

Hourly Air Force One Cost at $181G


The average American could buy a house for the amount of money it takes to run Air Force One every hour.

The U.S. military has provided an updated estimate on that cost, first published by a taxpayer watchdog group and confirmed by FoxNews.com, and the number is staggering -- $181,757 per hour. That's the price tag for shuttling around President Obama, who, as it turns out, has spent more days abroad in his first two years than any other president.

Estimates over the years based on government reports and independent number-crunching have always reflected a steep cost for presidential travel, but the figure provided by the 89th Airlift Wing appears to be far higher than any previously reported. It was first published in a report this week on presidential travel by the National Taxpayers Union Foundation.

Thanksgiving traditions in America




The all American Thanksgiving day parade has come down to a headliner who accused the president of the United States of being a racist. Say it ain't so! Kanye didn't call Obama a racist did he? Certainly not! It was the other guy stupid. That Bush guy we blame everything on!

So I guess with the addition of Gladys? America's parade is now a mixture of soul diva and hip hop "soul jer." I wonder how the Rose parade will turn out come January. I hear Hugo Chavez may be available.
A high-kicking Kung Fu Panda and a diary-toting Wimpy Kid will join the giant balloon lineup for the 84th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Live entertainers expected at Thursday's parade include Kanye West, Gladys Knight and Colombian rocker Juanes.

Tens of thousands of spectators are expected to line the parade route, with millions more watching the live broadcast on NBC.Returning balloon characters include Spider-Man, Smurf and Pillsbury Doughboy.
The Broadway casts of "American Idiot" and "Elf" will performThe Macy's parade tradition started in 1924. The parade was suspended from 1942 to 1944 because rubber and helium were needed for the war effort.


Perhaps the performing cast of "American Idiot and Elf" are actually omens.

Pointless headlines

It has begun

Yesterday's Drudge Report headline in response to the actions of the N Koreans read......."It Begins." Did it really begin yesterday? Or was the N Korean action of yesterday simply a precursor to a larger reality today. The day it really did begin.

Today's Drudge Report headline....."China, Russia quit dollar"
 I say the latter. It begins today.

The published version.......

St. Petersburg, Russia - China and Russia have decided to renounce the US dollar and resort to using their own currencies for bilateral trade, Premier Wen Jiabao and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin announced late on Tuesday.

Chinese experts said the move reflected closer relations between Beijing and Moscow and is not aimed at challenging the dollar, but to protect their domestic economies.

"About trade settlement, we have decided to use our own currencies," Putin said at a joint news conference with Wen in St. Petersburg.

The two countries were accustomed to using other currencies, especially the dollar, for bilateral trade. Since the financial crisis, however, high-ranking officials on both sides began to explore other possibilities.

The yuan has now started trading against the Russian rouble in the Chinese interbank market, while the renminbi will soon be allowed to trade against the rouble in Russia, Putin said.

"That has forged an important step in bilateral trade and it is a result of the consolidated financial systems of world countries," he said.

So.....on the surface, Russia and China are simply solidifying their bilateral trade agreements. Right. Guess again.

The bottom line...... It is one thing to have you backside hocked from here to kingdom come to the Chinese and Russians, but when your bankers wake up one day and decide that your method of payment is no longer acceptable to them? Then you really have a problem.

Or should I say....."we really have a problem."

Of course these demands won't happen quickly. Perhaps as much as a year will go by before we will one day get the letter in the mail from these two. The letter that reads, "due to various and sundry stresses on the international markets and the need for the people's republic and the great mother land to do their utmost to secure the further financial obligations owed to them, the forthwith provisions are now set into full force and effect. Your cooperation is expected.

"The dollar is no longer acceptable currency for payment or re-[ayment of outstanding debts and will no longer be accepted either in currency form or electronic debit. Henceforth, the Chinese Renminbi and the Russian Ruble will be the only acceptable forms of currency exchange or payment. (note. For your convenience...Renminbis and Rubles can be purchased at the international monetary exchange with pure gold based upon the daily exchange rate)."

There you have it folks. The fear of inflation looming on the horizon due to Obama and the Fed pumping 600 billion in new caveat money into our economy is the least of our problems. Wait until our bankers tell us that our money is no good by the wheel barrows full. Wait until you see the trucks backing up to Fort Knox and the New York Exchange and carting off all that we do have to service just the interest on our debt.

Maybe then those responsible for the fiddler of hope and change will see what actually has come to pass. Fundamental change of this country? You betcha and it truly begins today.

The United States is firmly committed to the defense of our ally, the Republic of Korea, and to the maintenance of regional peace and stability.


The media just reported that the South Korean president has issued a warning that any further attacks will be met with immediate military response.

We shall see.......

Thank you soldier

Gore Reverses View on Ethanol

I remember the first time I saw Al Gore. With his coiffed hair and his mechanical head nod. A lot has happened since then, but not the least of it is Gore's life and career after the vice presidency and his failed run for the White House.
Who could ever forget "An Inconvenient Truth" his Oscar! And his Nobel prize! I guess Al can. Or I guess at the least he wishes he could. Based upon these most recent revelations. But he is still rolling in the green backs (pun intended).

Blames Politics for Previous Support

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore reportedly has had a change of heart on ethanol, telling a conference on green energy in Europe that he only supported tax breaks for the alternative fuel to pander to farmers in his home state of Tennessee and the first-in-the-nation caucuses state of Iowa.
Speaking at a green energy business conference in Athens sponsored by Marfin Popular Bank, Gore said the lobbyists have wrongly kept alive the program he once touted.
It is not a good policy to have these massive subsidies for first-generation ethanol," Reuters quoted Gore saying of the U.S. policy that is about to come up for congressional review. "First-generation ethanol I think was a mistake. The energy conversion ratios are at best very small.
One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president," the wire service reported Gore saying.


So......I wonder...... What else is new for the "Max Headroom" of 90's green politics in America. Perhaps more CO2 credit hustling at the UN and maybe a few more steering engagements to spur him and mr. Blood's private enterprise.

Terrorists Have Discussed Use of Prosthetics to Conceal Explosives

Sources tell ABC News that intelligence has picked up terrorists discussing the use of prosthetic or medical devices to conceal explosives. The revelation comes as the White House today acknowledged that the implementation of new security measures at airports hasn't gone perfectly.
Is this really news? Is this something that is really surprising? The bottom line. Muslim terrorists will use any means necessary to accomplish their attacks against America and their favored weapon of choice? America's inbred terror of ever being called racist.

So the band plays on. We continue to shame and denigrate the elderly, while allowing our women to be fondled and our children to be molested. But heaven forbid we offend some Muslim by profiling him and identifying him for precisely what he is.

This may very well turn out to be an unforgettable holiday season. As I happen to believe that Islamic terrorists are about to truly test our resolve to do the right thing and to protect ourselves.

If America makes it through the holidays without a major terrorist attack carried out against this country? I will be surprised.

This administration knows that it is about to happen and Obama has been sending subliminal messages as much as confirming that conclusion for months now. They are preparing the ground for the acceptance of Americans for the next big attack that they knows is already being implemented.

Keep your hands off my Tea Bags mr. president!

Ditto that Rush!

A random act of culture



Just this past weekend, shoppers at the the Macy's in Philadelphia (the old Wanamaker building) were surprised when over 600 choristers who were there mingling with regular shoppers suddenly burst into Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. It's pretty awesome.

The Opera Company of Philadelphia was instrumental in bringing it together to perform one of the Knight Foundation's "1000 Random Acts of Culture" which they'll be doing over the next three years across the country. Accompanied by the Wanamaker Organ - the world's largest pipe organ - the singers burst into song at exactly noon.

TSA pat-down leaves traveler covered in urine 

A retired special education teacher on his way to a wedding in Orlando, Fla., said he was left humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine after an enhanced pat-down by TSA officers recently at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
“I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn’t even speak,” said Thomas D. “Tom” Sawyer, 61, of Lansing, Mich.
Sawyer is a bladder cancer survivor who now wears a urostomy bag, which collects his urine from a stoma, or opening in his stomach.  “I have to wear special clothes and in order to mount the bag I have to seal a wafer to my stomach and then attach the bag. If the seal is broken, urine can leak all over my body and clothes.”
On Nov. 7, Sawyer said he went through the security scanner at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. “Evidently the scanner picked up on my urostomy bag, because I was chosen for a pat-down procedure.”
Due to his medical condition, Sawyer asked to be screened in private. “One officer looked at another, rolled his eyes and said that they really didn’t have any place to take me,” said Sawyer. “After I said again that I’d like privacy, they took me to an office.”
Now, go and read the entire piece and prepare to be angered. This lunacy has to stop. This egalitarian lie that we should fear profiling of known terrorist groups (ie. middle eastern Muslims) has to stop. We know who the terrorists are and what they look like, yet we are forced to ignore that, in order to perpetuate the lies of egalitarian freedom and fairness. 

We as Americans are going to have to stand up and demand that the government honor it's responsibilities to protect the people and we are going to have to demand that our rights no longer be violated in the hope that egalitarian fairness will somehow make the illegality of violating the rights of Americans worthwhile. 

And here is yet another example being reported this morning.

Submit or Else, To The New American Gestapo

As the daily reports continue to reveal the extent of TSA violations of individual rights, the more that the seeming majority of silence by the American people continues to amaze me. Are Americans so cowed as to be prepared to completely abdicate their personal freedoms and allow unlimited access to their bodies without even so much as a whisper of complaint or indignation?

I am sorry, but I cannot understand why Americans by the millions are not screaming about this rape of the constitution and their personal liberties. Possibly because those that fly are a small minority of the over all population and the rest simply don't care. But there must at least be millions of those who should be up and arms over this lunacy. They fly and they fly frequently.

Read the latest........

$11,000 fine, arrest possible for some who refuse airport scans and pat downs

If you don't want to pass through an airport scanner that allows security agents to see an image of your naked body or to undergo the alternative, a thorough manual search, you may have to find another way to travel this holiday season.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is warning that any would-be commercial airline passenger who enters an airport checkpoint and then refuses to undergo the method of inspection designated by TSA will not be allowed to fly and also will not be permitted to simply leave the airport.

That person will have to remain on the premises to be questioned by the TSA and possibly by local law enforcement. Anyone refusing faces fines up to $11,000 and possible arrest.
"Once a person submits to the screening process, they can not just decide to leave that process," says Sari Koshetz, regional TSA spokesperson, based in Miami.

Koshetz said such passengers would be questioned "until it is determined that they don't pose a threat" to the public.

Palm Beach Sheriff's Office spokesperson Teri Barbera said PBSO deputies stationed at the airport would become involved when requested by the TSA.

"We will handle each incident on a case-by-case basis," she said.

No one will be forcibly searched or arrested "just because they refuse to go through the security procedures," Barbera said. "That may rise to the level of suspicious behavior for the TSA, but it wouldn't rise to the level of suspicious behavior for a deputy," she said.

But Barbera said that if a person is judged to be a possible threat, deputies are legally permitted to detain and search that individual. "The deputies will do it at the airport just as they would do it anywhere else," she said.

Once cleared by the TSA and deputies, the people will be allowed to leave, she said.
My first questions would be these. A traveler (such as I) enters into one of these TSA checkpoints. This traveler has absolutely no metal on or inside their body and they pass through the magnotometer with ease. But they have previously been flagged at the ticket counter for a random search.

The traveler refuses to accept the full body Xray scan and they refused to be searched via enhanced pat down. So now, according to this report, they will not be permitted to continue with their flight. But more importantly, they will not be allowed to leave the security area. Unless and until the TSA has questioned them and determined that their freedom can no longer be impeded.

Unless of course they do not provide satisfactory answers or the traveler decides to refuse TSA questioning All together. At which time the local police are called. And this is the point that I find extremely bothersome.

Under what authority can TSA detain (arrest) any citizen and under what statute are these detentions permissible. Recently, the TSA has been issued badges and blue uniforms that are very reminiscent of police uniforms. And there is a movement afoot in Washington, to give TSA agents actually police powers and arrest authority.

In view of what is presently happening at these TSA checkpoints, every America should be worried that the government intrusiveness that we are witnessing presently, is only the prelude to their intent to pursue further invasions of individual rights. Again under the auspices of protecting us from the enemy of terrorism. An enemy that this president and this administration, absolutely refuse to admit exists.


Died of Wounds

This piece comes from a personal story related at the US Naval Institute website.

Died of Wounds
There is a war casualty that will not make its way into any DoD announcement of US service personnel.  The death occurred fourteen months ago, and I will admit that I didn’t hear about it for several months.  And when I did, I was deeply saddened but cannot truthfully say I was surprised.
I first met CDR Dennis Rocheford in 1990, not long after he had joined the Navy.  He arrived to be the new Recruit Depot Chaplain at Parris Island, where I was stationed as a Series Commander training recruits.  Tall and lanky, he looked born to wear the Marine Alphas I first saw him in.  And indeed he was.   At a time and place where almost nobody wore more than one or two ribbons, Father Rocheford had a chest full. And those he wore had gravitas.  Two Purple Hearts, from a VC bullet through his side, and mortar fragments to his chin and face.  A Bronze Star.  Combat Action Ribbon.  The story of this handsome, friendly, fiercely faithful new Chaplain spread quickly.  He had been Ray “E-tool” Smith’s radio operator as a Lance Corporal on Hill 881 at Khe Sanh with Alpha Company, 1st Marines, and had survived the fierce fighting in Hue City.  When he was asked how he came to join the Navy as a Chaplain, he told us that, after surviving Vietnam, he promised God he would not waste his life.
Father was from Worcester, MA, not far from where I grew up, the city where I attended college.  I immediately struck up a friendship with this gentle man of immense strength.  I admired the way he ministered to recruits who sought his counsel.  He would not hesitate to tell those whom he knew to be “skylarking” to quit bellyaching and get back to their platoons, while providing spiritual guidance to those whom truly were in need.  Father Rocheford would show up at any and all PT events, and at 40 (which seemed OLD then, but somehow not so much now that I am 46) displayed his remarkable physical condition by always leading the events from the front.
When we had a chance to chat, he would talk with me about home, and mutual places and acquaintances, of which there were surprisingly many.  We also discussed faith, and why I was no longer attending Mass (I am Catholic).  To my surprise and relief, instead of reading from the “script”, he listened.  (My hometown was the site of very serious abuses by a number of Priests in the 1970s.  Some of my friends and people I knew were victims who’d had their lives destroyed.)  I was thrilled to have Father Rocheford preside over my wedding in 1992.  He made a very good impression on my parents, who talked of him in the years that followed quite often, and always in glowing terms.
Following Parris Island, I saw Father Rocheford on occasion at Camp Lejeune, where he was the Chaplain of 3rd Bn 8th Marines, and then 26th MEU.  Even after months or years, he was able to make me feel as if we were picking up a conversation from hours or minutes before, and always had time for a smile, a handshake, and inquiry about myself, my life, my parents, and my Marines.
When I left active duty and joined the 25th Marines headquartered in Worcester, MA., whom do I see on my first Sunday drill but Father Dennis Rocheford.  He had transitioned to the Reserves as well, and was our Regimental Chaplain.  I found that he was very popular with the unit of tough, largely Catholic Officers and Marines of the Regiment.  There were, it seemed, legion Marines who had served with Fr. Rocheford at 3/8, on 26th MEU, and even at Parris Island.  His services in the end-hallway classroom were always packed, but I still found standing room in the back.   After three years I transferred to 3rd Bn 14th Marines in Philadelphia, but on occasion would attend planning conferences at 25th Marines, where Father Rocheford always greeted me with a smile and a hearty handshake.
When I deployed to Iraq’s volatile Anbar Province in 2004, the 1st Marine Division Chaplain was Father Bill Devine, another Northeast boy, who knew Dennis Rocheford well.  Father Devine spoke often of Dennis, and unsurprisingly professed the utmost of respect and admiration for him.
I had heard in 2007 that Father Rocheford had gone to Iraq as the Chaplain of II MEF, to Al Anbar and Ramadi.  As was the case with the superb Father Devine, I knew the spiritual welfare of the Marines was in the best of hands.  And it was.  Nevertheless, Father Rocheford was remembered on prayer lists for both his personal safety and the incredibly demanding responsibility he bore.
The last time I saw Father Rocheford was a chance meeting in a pub in Worcester.  It was about a year after the death of my father, July of 2009.  He greeted me warmly, and told me he had seen my Dad’s obituary, and offered his deep condolences.  We talked of my time in Iraq, and his time as well.  Of Ramadi, and Fallujah, and Qa’im, Hadithah, and the names of places that mean nothing to anyone who was not there.  But Dennis’s eyes, once so shining with his faith and his strength, were sad.  Almost as if he were mourning as he recalled a fond memory.  He was troubled.  I remember thinking as we said our goodbyes, who would minister to him?  This brave and stalwart soul who knows both the killing and healing side of combat, who daily, must steady the souls of young men whose faith has been shaken?  What answers has he for the Lance Corporal whose best friend disappears in an instant of fire and smoke, or lies bleeding and praying on a filthy street while his comrades look on helplessly?  If anything, I departed his company with a deeper admiration than ever before, and a profound sadness at what I suspected was a tortured soul.
When I heard of Father Rocheford’s passing, and finding that he’d taken his own life, my sadness could not prevent me from thinking of the character of Father Karras in the final scenes of The Exorcist, who takes the Devil into his own body in order to save the young girl.  It seemed to me that Father Rocheford had performed small exorcisms on hundreds, perhaps thousands of young Marines and Sailors, releasing the demons that months and years of combat had placed in their souls.  Some small part of each of those demons Father Rocheford took inside himself.  There, with his own demons of death and fear and pain from combat with the enemy, they pressed a mighty weight on his soul.  Unlike Hollywood, real life teaches us time and again that there are limits to what even the strongest of us can endure.  On that bright Wednesday morning, September 9th, 2009, Father Rocheford reached his.
“Greater love hath no man, that he should give up his life for his friend.”
The Department of Defense announced the death of a Sailor and a Vietnam Marine who was supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Commander Dennis Rocheford, USNR, 60, of Worcester, Massachusetts, died September 9th, 2009 of wounds, visible and invisible, received in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam, and in Al Anbar Province, Iraq, while supporting Marines and Sailors from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
My apologies to the reader, as the first person pronoun is used in this post perhaps too often.  Rest assured, however, that there are hundreds of Marines and Sailors who would have similar stories about this remarkable and courageous man.
Semper Fidelis.  In Pace Requiesca.  Father, yours was a life not wasted.

Barbara Boxer is an Idiot

But the people of California continue to elect this air headed leftist.

Jesse Rebels

And I am in 100% agreement.

State sponsored pedophilia and sexual abuse

Watch this video of a three year old little girl being assaulted by a TSA agent. "Stop touching me!" she cries out! Then listen to the TSA regional director's explanation and his attempt to explain how "it could have been handled better, had they made a game out of it with the child."

In other words, the same way pedophiles entice children for indecent purposes, via the use of ruses and games? These are the recommended tactics for TSA screeners who feel the necessity to grope and search children according to one of their regional directors.



Now, watch as this grandmother explains in detail how she was sexually assaulted while being screened at a TSA checkpoint.



This is sickening to me and a horror to even consider. What has my country come to, when we are subjecting our women and mothers and daughters to humiliating bodily searches, just so we can claim to be doing something about terrorism.

Meanwhile, everyone (especially the terrorists) knows that these are ineffectual means to prevent terrorism. And in the end it is the terrorists who once again win. They win because, we as a nation (not unlike our European cousins) are terrified of going against the egalitarian insanity that requires idiocy over common sense. This issue is reaching critical mass in this country and I fully expect it to explode (figuratively) over this coming holiday weekend.

Several entities are advocating that over the Thanksgiving holiday, that all fliers become non compliant with these TSA (Gestapo) tactics of infringement on personal freedoms. I tend to agree. This isn't about safety or preventing terrorism in America. If it were, we would be scrutinizing those responsible for global terrorism over the last forty five years.

It relatively simple. You scrutinize those who have historically demonstrated their participation in global terrorism. And if that is considered "profiling" in this upside down world of egalitarian lunacy? then so be it.

I for one have absolutely no intention of flying any time soon, but if I did? I would not submit to these governmental infringements on my freedoms or my body. Nor would i stand still for the sexual battery of my wife or daughters, while the TSA or anyone else engaged in these supposed enhanced pat down searches.

And that old liberal mantra of this is the price we must pay to live in a free society is just so much more propaganda BS as far as I am concerned.

When children and grandmothers are treated like human chattel by agents of the federal or state government? Then this is no longer a free country. Our freedoms have been co-opted and eliminated by those who feel that being politically correct is more important than using common sense and protecting individual rights.

Pat says it's our own damn fault

Pat Buchanan once again provides a buffet of thought as it concerns the looming dragon of China. Pat in essence says that it's our own damn fault and I am compelled to agree.

Nixon opened Pandora's Box in 1970 and everyone in between and since has aided in setting the stage for what confronts us presently. Make sure and read the entire piece.

Who fed the tiger?
Missiles fired from the Chinese mainland could destroy five of the six major U.S. air bases in the Far East. So states a new report of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, adding:
"Saturation missile strikes could destroy U.S. air defenses, runways, parked aircraft, and fuel and maintenance facilities. Complicating this scenario is the future deployment of China's anti-ship ballistic missile, which could hold U.S. aircraft carriers at bay outside their normal operating range."
Opposite Taiwan, China's missile force has reached 1,600.
Beijing is also building rockets, submarines and surface fleets to extend her dominance out to the third chain of islands, enabling the People's Liberation Army to strike U.S. carriers and bases as far away as Guam.
Since the demise of the blue-water navy of Russian Adm. Sergei Gorshkov, the Pacific has been an American lake. No more.
China lays claim to all the Paracel and Spratly islands of the South China Sea, all the Senkakus in the East China Sea, and all the oil and gas beneath and around those islets and reefs.
America's offer to mediate these claims, which involve half a dozen other anxious Asian nations, has been rudely rebuffed by Beijing.

 Arlington guards bury one of their own

At the funeral Wednesday morning for Army Staff Sgt. Adam L. Dickmyer, many of the soldiers standing by his grave wore a brightly polished silver badge on the right chest pocket of their crisp blue jackets. On their steely faces, the sun reflected the glint of tears. 
The "sentinels," as the guards of the Tomb of the Unknowns call themselves, had come to section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery to salute one of their own.
Dickmyer, 26, died Oct. 28 near Kandahar, Afghanistan, of wounds caused by a makeshift bomb. He was the first sentinel killed in action in 43 years and the first to die in the fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq.
He was the 12th sentinel interred at Arlington and the third in the unit's history to be killed in combat.

Today's Uber Left Update

Once again brought to you by our friends at the Daily Kos. These people still don't get it.

Locutisprime,
Some conservative Democrats have started to cave on Social Security. Senator Mark Warner of Virginia says “we have to” raise the retirement age (link). Peter Orzag, who is President Obama’s former director of the Office of Management and Budget, is urging progressives to support Social Security cuts (link).
With Republicans, Wall Street, and the corporate media already in favor of cutting Social Security, we have to gear up to stop any Democratic capitulation. That’s why, at Daily Kos, we're looking to deny these Democrats any grassroots support for their “compromises,” and identify a group of activists who are willing to take further steps fight back. You can help us by signing a pledge to yourself promising you will never support cutting or privatizing Social Security.
Click here to sign the pledge now.
Keep fighting,
Chris Bowers

Enough is Enough!

So says Ron Paul and I agree with him....

This is my America

This is my America. A place where goodness of the heart still exists and where dreams really do come true.

Medusa rises......the Democrats still don't get it


Apparently....not a lot has changed inside the democrat party since the November 2, elections. Apparently......not only their illustrious leader failed to grasp the reality of complete repudiation at the polls earlier this month, but so has the cartel of the uber left that continues to hold sway over the party nationally.


Uneasy House Democrats keep Pelosi as their leader

House Democrats gambled Wednesday they can return to power under the same leaders who just oversaw a 61-seat election loss, choosing Nancy Pelosi to remain their party chief when they become the minority in January.

Moderate Democrats pleaded for a change to show voters they understand the anger and unrest registered two weeks earlier on Election Day. And Pelosi didn't retain her leadership without a fight, defeating Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina, 150-43, in secret balloting in a lengthy closed-door gathering on Capitol Hill.

Make no mistake, the people have spoken madam Pelosi and your refusal to see the forest fire for the flames does nothing to lessen the reality that America is tired of the uber left and their maniacal socialism and refusal to hear the people.

The GOP may have won the majority, but they failed to unseat the cancerous roots of the democrat party that still controls the party nationally. Many moderate democrats were the casualties of their angered districts and what remains for the most part in the democrat party, are the hard core ultra leftist. Those from the scattered seed beds of liberalism and anti Americanism that pock mark the face of this country like mold on bread.

So take note America, Medusa rises. Pelosi and her band of hyenas will continue to circle the camp, looking for any opportunity to catch the people sleeping once again. For they are not finished with the carcass that is America and they are not happy about having to share it with the newly arrived pride of GOP lions.

Palin can beat Obama

So says Sarah. Bottom line, she is a nice lady? But no way no how is she going to beat Obama in a head to head match up. At least not as things stand right now. Maybe by the time the 2012 election rolls around, Obama will have so thoroughly pissed off America, that it may give Palin the boost she would need.

“Once more unto the breach, dear friends!”

Many often wonder who these often rough and tumble individuals are. Riding in on their steel horses. Thundering along in unison like a rhythmic yet unkempt military unit. Standing as brothers shielding those that need only comfort and no further sorrow.

They are the Patriot Guards.

Why? Because there was a need.......



Standing for those who stood for us.

So, no cry of victory yet. Rather, “Once more unto the breach, dear friends!”

Decisions....... decisions

So....let's see if I have this straight. We have an acknowledged 'bipolar' individual seated as president in Afghanistan. Someone hand picked by America to supposedly lead the democratic reformation of this sorry spit of worthless geography.

We know for a fact that this guy has been holding clandestine meetings with with the Taliban, (the enemy). And having previously demanded that America sacrifice more of our soldiers in pointless restrictive engagements, so that "civilians casualties in Afghanistan could be reduced," he is now calling for further reductions in America's combat efforts to rid his country of militant Islam.

US: No to Karazi’s Demand for Less Military

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is once again causing headaches for U.S. and NATO commanders, this time demanding the U.S. reduce its military presence in the region and stop conducting night raids against the Taliban.
"The time has come to reduce military operations," Karzai said in an interview with the Washington Post over the weekend. "The time has come to reduce the presence of, you know, boots in Afghanistan ... to reduce the intrusiveness into the daily Afghan life ... make it more civilian."
The comments come just as the Obama administration has publicly embraced Karzai's own idea of transferring security responsibility to Afghan forces by 2014. The plan would effectively end major U.S. combat operations in 2014 if the conditions on the ground are stable enough.
President Karzai has repeatedly expressed concern about civilian casualties caused by U.S. and NATO air strikes, as well as night raids into Afghan homes.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday the U.S. Military has listened to Karzai's concerns in the past and taken many steps to reduce civilian casualties. But, the Secretary seemed less willing to slow the pace of raids, which have increased significantly under the command of General David Petraeus. "The use of intelligence-driven precision operations against high value insurgents and their networks is a key component of our comprehensive civilian-military operations," Clinton said. "There is no question that they are having a significant impact on the insurgent leadership and... we believe that these operations are in the best interests of the Afghan people, the Afghan government and the ISAF troops that are working with their Afghan counterparts to secure the country."I say withdraw all American troops and do it now. I say then deliver an ultimatum to Afghanistan and Pakistan. "Deliver the Taliban? Of face nuclear annihilation." Then give them one month to produce the enemy and Osama Bin Ladin, or begin dropping thermo-nuclear weapons.

Of course, I have absolutely no say so in America's policy and there are several million middle eastern Muslims who should hit their knees, face east and be thankful for that fact on a daily basis.

Another face of America

Having been told he could not fly his American flag on his bicycle by his school right before Veterans Day, a 13 year old California boy complied. Because he didn't want to cause any trouble.

Since then, his story has gone viral and the school has backed off of the policy that they claimed was implemented to prevent "racial" problems. Now the school says that it is OK for him to fly his flag

The young man's supporters have grown exponentially over the past week. And some of them showed up today to show their support.



Many of those present, are Patriot Guard Riders.

Semper Fi......

The Kool Aid gang is at it again

Received in email from the "Daily Kos"

There is a consensus among American “elites” on Social Security. Most CEOs, pundits, and elected officials favor cutting and / or privatizing it, claiming that doing so will reduce the deficit. That claim is a lie, since Social Security is fully funded through 2037, pays for itself 100%, and doesn’t add one dime to the deficit.
We can’t expect these CEOs, Republicans, pundits and Blue Dogs to stop propagating their lies about Social Security. Instead, if we are going to stop this alliance of elites from cutting Social Security, the first thing we must do is promise ourselves we won’t ever buy into their lies.
That’s why at Daily Kos we're asking you to sign a pledge, to yourself, promising you will never support cutting or privatizing Social Security. Click here to sign the pledge.
With the elite consensus in place, the only reason Social Security hasn’t been cut or privatized already is because the public is overwhelmingly opposed. If, for whatever reason, a significant number of progressives start supporting Social Security cuts, then the elites will have the cover they need and the battle will be lost.
You are the first and last line of defense for Social Security. No matter what happens in the coming weeks and months, and no matter who ends up supporting cuts in Social Security, we must stand united in our opposition.
It is imperative that you promise yourself to never support cutting or privatizing Social Security. Take the pledge now.
Solidarity,
Chris Bowers
 Theirs is a sickness

It's a simple question

It's a simple question....."How much damage can be done in four years?"

To be a great president, Obama should not seek reelection in 2012

President Obama must decide now how he wants to govern in the two years leading up to the 2012 presidential election.

In recent days, he has offered differing visions of how he might approach the country's problems. At one point, he spoke of the need for "mid-course corrections." At another, he expressed a desire to take ideas from both sides of the aisle. And before this month's midterm elections, he said he believed that the next two years would involve "hand-to-hand combat" with Republicans, whom he also referred to as "enemies."
It's becoming clearer. When even your friends and supporters are openly discussing your departure and the end of your rein? Then something must be afoot. And ever since the closing weeks before the midterms, when it became apparent that the democrats were on the losing end of this election, there have been the continuing murmurs of a one term Obama administration.

Right now, there remain those in the democratic party who are not the wild eyed followers of the rabid left as led by the Pelosi faction. These truly moderate democrats have seen the results of unbridled socialism as applied by this regime and they have seen the party suffer. As they look down the road to the 2012 elections, they see more misery and loss and they know who is responsible.

But the uber left isn't done yet and as the voices rise amongst the less rabid in the party, to step back and tone done the leftist rhetoric and mantras, the more determined the Pelosi faction has become to speed the nation ever faster toward oblivion.

These are the people (the uber left) who are speaking up now, both in the party and in the media and telling Obama that he has to look past a two administration presidency. It never was about a two term presidency for these people. What it was about, was getting their agenda past the American people, while swathed in the touchy feely guilt trips of America electing its first black president. And who better to accomplish the deception, than the hand picked and hand raised Fabian socialist from Chicago's "new party."

The euphoria of the gimmick is over now. Gone are the chants of 'yes we can.' Replaced by the realities of 'no we can't' and the fact that America is in far worse shape than was ever imaginable when they elected Barack Obama to the presidency two years ago.

Reflections of the past two weeks, in particular since the release of George Bush's "Decision Points" has only served to further clarify and congeal the reality and truth in the minds of the American people in my opinion.

Barack Obama's mission, was to steer the ship of state clear of truth and reality, while the unseen uber left (who are the one's actually controlling policy in this administration) implemented their socialist programs and schemes before the American people became aware of what they were doing and who was really calling the shots.

Now as we are two weeks past the midterms, the grand plan of the left is becoming more clear and more revealed by its results. Those that lurk in the shadows of this administration and those who's charge it is to keep the people duped like mushrooms, (media) now know that there are only two years left to press the agenda and accomplish all that can be accomplished.

Not so much that there are possibilities of monumental changes left undone, but there remain the tasks of furthering the egalitarian left's socialist establishment and the protecting of what has to date been accomplished. Specifically, the crown jewel....'Obama care' must be protected. Make no mistake, John Boehner nor his majority in congress will be able to reverse the damage done to date. As in the end, Obama will maintain the power of veto until the end.


So the question is: "How much damage can be done in four years?" Well if is history is a guide? I'd say a lot. One look back at Jimmy Carter's disastrous four years should clearly demonstrate that. We are still paying the price for that liberal buffoon's failures and intentional weakening of this nation.

Where would we be today, had Jimmy Carter never been elected and never allowed Islamic militancy the foothold and power on the world stage that the fall of Iran and the Iranian hostage crisis presented. How much damage can be done in four years? One look at Germany 1939-1943 is a good example.

As we proceed past the midterms and await the elected republican majority's ascendancy in the next congress, watch the moves being made on the periphery. Pelosi isn't going away and neither is Obama's assigned agenda by the controllers of the democrat party.

A lot has been said about the Obama administration's propensity to discard people and throw them under the bus. This week begins the president's preparation to be thrown under the bus. Much like any zealot's commitment though it be fatal in the end, Obama will be chained to the bus if necessary, to prevent any substantive sea change from occurring in America.

So don't be confused or dismayed by the re-trenching or the doubling down that is about to become apparent with the democrats. They know they have lost the majority in congress, but they also know that they still have their guy driving the bus. So they are going to lash themselves to the deck and ride the storm of conservatism while they continue to damage and further undermine this nation.

Obama the job killer

Afghanistan's Neville Chamberlain

What's wrong with this picture.......


Afghan President Hamid Karzai said the United States must reduce the visibility and intensity of its military operations, especially night raids that fuel anti-American sentiment and could embolden Taliban insurgents.Karzai's remarks in an interview Saturday with The Washington Post come as the international military coalition has stepped up pressure on insurgents at the same time that the president has set up a peace council in hopes of reconciling with the top echelon of the Taliban.
"The time has come to reduce military operations," Karzai said in the interview. "The time has come to reduce the presence of, you know, boots in Afghanistan ... to reduce the intrusiveness into the daily Afghan life."
Karzai also said he met with one or two "very high" level Taliban leaders about three months ago, but described a peace process in its initial stages -- one that amounts to little more than "the exchange of desires for peace." He said, however, that he believes Taliban leader Mullah Omar has been informed of his discussions.
He said the Taliban share his feeling that the nine-year-old war has taken too high a toll on the people of Afghanistan.
 So let's see....... Afghanistan has an admitted bipolar president who has held meetings with the enemy and regularly displays lapses of common sense and good judgment. And now the man, having met once again with the enemy (the Taliban) he wants th US to basically back off and back down and turn it all over to his gracious diplomacy and intelligence.

The Taliban, host to Osama Bin Ladin and arch rivals to Al Qaeda, were chased to ground and literally run out of Afghanistan over eight years ago. The problem is, we didn't finish the job. We allowed them to simply step over the border into Pakistan, where they have remained. Pakistan, where to this day they remain in collusion with Pakistani Muslims.

And yet we in America are supposed to listen to the counsel of a man who is at best a mental incompetent and at worst a collaborator?

All we need now? Is a video of Karzai, wearing his blanket, carrying his staff, while leading his goat down out of the mountains and waving his signed treaty with the Taliban.

Giving away our security

Obama and his BFF Medvedev
The president, capping an Asian trip of mixed results, assures Russian President Medvedev he will press to ratify a nuclear weapons treaty in the coming months — before a more Republican Senate makes passage even tougher.
Now there is a nice little comforting snippet for your Sunday morning. Go ahead, follow the link and read of how the man of hope and change has a few must do daggers left to get done for America, before the republicans can stop him.

Then go back to your Sunday morning headlines. Read of where the Irish are about to go belly up and the continuing economic pressures by China to further bleed the American economy.

And yet here is the president, still kissing up to the enemies of this country and promising them that he intends to do all that he can do to fulfill his promises to 'fundamentally change' this nation for ever.

I'd say that he is on schedule and the train wreck in progress hasn't reached the final act of this interloper's presidency yet.

Michael Moore To Obama: "Take Off The Pink Tutu"

Didn't this guy make a movie called "Sicko?"

I thought so.

Now, go watch and listen as he and Bill Maher lament their weary hearts over the fact that their messiah isn't getting done their most desired best business of socialism.

These two sickos need to get a room.....

California is half way there

At this point, California is a lost cause in my opinion. There are two things that are taking California to the bottom. Illegal immigration and public worker unions.
And based upon the latest figures, illegals and other Hispanics now make up more than half of the public school children in the state.

Latinos now make up a majority of California's public school students, cracking the 50 percent barrier for the first time in the state's history, according to data released Friday by the state Department of Education.
Almost 50.4 percent of the state's students in the 2009-10 school year identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino, up 1.36 percent from the previous year.
In comparison, 27 percent of California's 6.2 million students identified themselves as white, 9 percent as Asian and 7 percent as black. Students calling themselves Filipino, Pacific Islander, Native American or other total almost 7 percent.
This year California is once again faced with billions in budget shortfalls and I am sure that the 'govinator' can't wait to hop in his Humvee and pack his trash and leave.

Another funny statistic pops out when considering California and the liberal left. the highest 1% of wage earners paid 48% of the states taxes last year. I wonder who those folks are....

Could they be in the 'entertainment industry?' And aircraft manufacturing? They won't be there for long.

Feliz California gringos.........................

The verdict is in

I suppose if we are to listen to this illustrious British general? Then we may as well just throw in the towel and begin making plans to build mosques all over America and the UK.

Just roll over and pray that they allow us to continue to live.

What an utter waste of air this supposed general is. But par for the course with our ever weakened, frightened and egalitarian controlled allies.

The new head of Britain's armed forces, Gen Sir David Richards, has warned that the West cannot defeat al-Qaeda and militant Islam.

He said defeating Islamist militancy was "unnecessary and would never be achieved".
However, he argued that it could be "contained" to allow Britons to lead secure lives.
Gen Richards, 58, said the threat posed by "al-Qaeda and its affiliates" meant Britain's national security would be at risk for at least 30 years.
 Well there you have it and from a British general no less. Defeating the enemy is unnecessary and can never be achieved if we are to listen to this military genius.

Any wonder why the British have had their asses kicked every where they have been engaged in battle on this planet for the past seventy years?

One thing is for sure, we won't be there to save their asses this go round.

The Queen of "Denial"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she has the “overwhelming support” of fellow Democrats in her bid to become minority leader in the next Congress, and says she’s not to blame for the Democrats’ mid-term debacle.

“We didn’t lose the election because of me,” Ms. Pelosi told National Public Radio in an interview that aired Friday morning. “Our members do not accept that.”
Instead, the California Democrat attributes the loss of at least 60 seats to high unemployment and “$100 million of outside, unidentified funding.”
“Any party that cannot turn (9.5% unemployment) into political gains should hang up the gloves,” she said.
I'd like to know what she has been smoking. This promises to be an interested January when the house re-convenes.

 The "overwhelming support angle? I want to see how that pipe dream holds up when it actually comes down to votes and after the remaining democrats have had two months to digest their own political futures come 2012.

And the part about unemployment? Priceless. Hell yes unemployment played a huge factor in the election. But so did the democrats unapologetic attitudes, led by madam Pelosi and her hell bent refusal to do anything about it, while they mulled and shoved Obama care down America's throats.

Oh.....and that 100 million in outside funding? That must have come for all that 'astro turf' you have been writing off while you swooned and caressed the  media and smirked with that stupid little grin on your face.

Remember madam speaker? The part about "we have to pass this so that we can see what is in it?" Well you did pass it and the American people have seen what is in it. And now you too can see what was in it. Included in your little elitist socialist bill? Were the makings for the undoing and demise of your party at the polls last Tuesday. Along with your own demise as an influence in the party period, beyond the wild eyed rabid leftist that have their noses buried in your backside.

Where Is The Outrage (UPDATED)

Is this really happening in America?



Where is the outrage? Where are those who should be standing up in this community in support of this young man and demanding that his rights be preserved. Where are those pounding on the doors of the school board and the county commission? Demanding that this secular humanism and out right anti American leftist politically correct crap cease?

I don't see it. Not yet at least. Perhaps when enough Cody's are killed for having violated the sanctity of publicly sponsored hate for America, under the auspices of fairness and tolerance and secular depravity.

Maybe then the people of this country will stand up for what is right and defeat the creeping cancerous diseases of secular humanism and socialist egalitarianism.

(UPDATE)

Apparently, the angered parents and others who did oppose this idiocy had an effect. The school backed down and reversed it's decision.

School Reverses Course After Ordering Student to Remove American Flag From Bike

But none the less, it should never have come to that. It should never have happened in the first place. And as far as the 'Hispanics" who may have been offended by the American flag or not allowed to fly their Mexican flag? There is a solution. There is a resolution. There is a place where they can fly their flag. And that place is called "Mexico."

And they are more than welcome to return there to fly their flags in the peace and comfort of their faux national piety and their drug cartels and the rest of their homey culture that is alien to our own.

Garfield apologizes

Just another "day in the neighborhood" of the liberal America hating left. This certainly isn't the Mr. Roger's neighborhood of old. This is the new hood of the liberal elite and their chic humor.

"Garfield" creator apologizes for Veterans Day strip

The creator of the widely syndicated comic "Garfield" has apologized for a strip that ran on Veterans Day that some critics saw as making fun of the holiday honoring those who served in the U.S. military.
Thursday's strip showed a spider warning the comic's featured cat, the lazy and overweight Garfield, that if the feline "squishes" him, an annual day of remembrance will be held in his honor.
Garfield, who frequently crushes spiders in the series, apparently is undeterred and the strip closes with a classroom of spiders being asked why they celebrate "National Stupid Day."
The cartoon drew such Internet comments as "Surely this isn't in the best of taste for Armistice Day/Veterans Day" and that Garfield creator Jim Davis "is way off the mark with this cartoon. Shame on him."
Although some others said they doubted creator had such intentions or that they didn't read the strip the way the critics did, Davis issued a statement apologizing.
"Please accept my apologies for any offense today's Garfield may have created. It was unintentional and regrettable," the statement said.

Apparently no one was laughing yesterday. So I wonder.....if Jim Davis will be seeking counsel now from the likes of Al Franken. (another comic genius.)

"Please accept my apologies for any offense today's Garfield may have created. It was unintentional and regrettable," the statement said.

Maybe one day when Jim Davis is squished by some socialist fat cat? Someone will name a day after him.

Who would have believed

As recent as ten years ago, who would have believed that the Chinese would soon be not only our bankers and mortgage holders, but they would also be major interest holders in companies like General Motors.

Aldous Huxley spoke of a Brave New World and George Orwell spoke of an Animal Farm, but I never would have envisioned what is presently coming to pass in America.

Where's Waldo?

Here he is...in Korea this morning.

Veterans day in America and where is our commander in chief? Read the lead into this article in the New York Post this morning.

Bam AWOL on Vets Day
Today is Veterans Day. Do you know where your president is?
With his feeble flame of "hope" thoroughly doused here in the United States by last week's elections, President Obama has set out around the globe in search of throngs still enthralled by his flowery rhetoric.
He found them, of course, in Indonesia this week by telling them about how Americans must stop mistrusting Islam.
So that is why your president is halfway around the world instead of being here in the United States to celebrate the sacrifices American soldiers, sailors and airmen have made around the world to keep the real, still-burning flame of freedom alive.
Does anyone really expect this interloper to do anything remotely patriotic? I know that I don't. As I equally realize that anything that he might do at this point would be nothing less than a choreographed sham.


Enjoy your trip Barry. Meanwhile, real Americans will take care of remembrance, respect and duty back home...

And oh! By the way! Where was Waldo back on Memorial day? Let's take the way back machine and have a look see.

Memorial Day 2010: Where's Waldo and President Obama
By all accounts, Memorial Day 2010 is a time to remember those who gave their lives in defense of the way of life that we take for granted. It is also a time to give thought and thanks to those currently serving, sacrificing and in some cases suffering catastrophic injuries that they will live with the rest of their lives.

President Obama, on this Memorial Day 2010 weekend, will not be paying tribute as have presidents who have come before at the laying of a wreath ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. He will instead be vacationing in Chicago, taking some time today for a 3 hour lip service and rhetoric filled photo op in New Orleans,

I believe I see a pattern.....
