If our troops in Afghanistan aren’t supposed to use their weapons anyway…

    then is it really a big deal if they don’t work? A jammed gun can’t shoot a civilian after all. In the chaos of an early morning assault on a remote U.S. outpost in eastern Afghanistan, Staff Sgt. Erich Phillips’ M4 carbine quit firing as militant forces surrounded the base. The machine gun he grabbed after tossing the rifle aside didn’t work either. When the | Read More »

    Another Obama “friend” crawls out from under a rock

    After the murder of that kid in Chicago was caught on video, Obama shipped off Holder and Duncan to make it looked like he was concerned. But there wasn’t much report nationally about how the actual leaders in that community were locked out of that meeting and instead they met with a few others including — you won’t believe it — Rev. Michael Pfleger. Community | Read More »

    ACORN steals money from firefighters – What’s the big deal?

    The VRWC arm of the media has been all over this one. Nearly $1 million in Homeland Security funding typically earmarked for fire departments has been awarded to ACORN, despite a clear signal from Congress that it intends to cut off federal funding to the embattled group. … It was one of only three such grants issued to the state and made up almost 80 | Read More »

    Make room for Greg Craig under the Obama bus

    It’s his fault that Obama made up a date and stated it for all to hear. It doesn’t get more comical than this. But sources familiar with the process believe Craig is being set-up as the fall guy and say the blame for missing the deadline extends well beyond him. Gee, you think so? Instead, it was a widespread breakdown on the political, legislative, policy | Read More »

    Gee what a shock – “conservative” Senate Dems cave on health care

    via the Corner’s tweet tracker…. Any talk of some Senate (alleged) conservative Dems is — well it’s nothing but talk as usual. The middle two paragraphs are the interesting part. It looks like the Reid/Obama approach is to say “What’s your price?” and then meet it. Moderate Democrats Fall in Line “Moderate Senate Democrats face increasing pressure to support a health care bill that includes | Read More »

    A deadly day in Afghanistan; I suppose only one question about it is unanswered

    The Taliban stormed a base near the Pakistani border. 8 Americans were killed and many Afghanis on our side were killed or captured. Insurgents stormed remote outposts in eastern Afghanistan killing eight Americans in the deadliest battle in more than a year near the border with Pakistan, the U.S. military said Sunday. Afghan provincial authorities said they had lost contact with scores of Afghan policemen | Read More »

    Here’s what we get for nearly a billion in “humanitarian” aid to these animals

    As everyone knows, President Obama would like to help any country in the world … apparently under the condition that it hates the US as much as he does. Included in this is $900,000,000 of money borrowed from China that earlier this year he proposed sending to the Palestinians, mostly in the Gaza Strip. This would be the same people who managed to kidnap an | Read More »

    How long before the next mortgage meltdown?

    I wish Francis C were still around to explain this. I can’t match that, so let me toss it out and let y’all chime in. It sounds like a complete disaster in the making. This piece linked by Drudge caught my eye. It’s about people saying the Fed needs to start bumping up interest rates real soon. To prevent inflation from taking off, the Federal | Read More »

    The biggest difference between polar bears and black bears

    is apparently that polar bears don’t interfere with millionaire liberals who burn a huge carbon footprint to fly their private jets to Aspen to ski and hang out with other lefties. Officials are now concerned that across Colorado too many wild bears have developed a tasted for human food and are getting used to people. They are now actively telling residents to be, literally, mean | Read More »

    One example of current Obama Afghanistan strategy

    Let’s see… Raise your hand if you’ve seen this sickening story reported prominently in the drive-by media here. Someone? Anyone? NATO-led forces are investigating the death of four Marines in eastern Afghanistan after their commanders reportedly rejected requests for artillery fire in a battle with insurgents, the Pentagon said on Wednesday. Tuesday’s incident was “under investigation” and details remained unclear, press secretary Geoff Morrell told | Read More »
