The 3 Take Home Points on McChrystal and the Skunks at Rolling Stone
Y’all know the drill. When the story first broke regarding General Stanley McChrystal supposedly “committing an act of insubordination” by trashing President Obama to Rolling Stone magazine, the conventional wisdom was to say that “he should be fired”. Well, then, after reading Michael Rulle’s excellent article titled, “Has Anyone Actually Read the Rolling Stone Article?”, it became apparent to me that A.) most of the | Read More »
Most Despised President In History – US Military No Confidence.
I want to thank my editor, Dee, for covering for me yesterday and delivering a really excellent article. I had a summer bug (summer?, what summer?) creep up and bite me hard. I’d forgotten the joys of childhood viruses (my daughter is five). I can’t wait for school start. The published lame stream reports are, as usual, full of baloney. There is a mystery here… | Read More »
In Obama’s skin-deep understanding of policy, 30k troops + Petraeus = Automatic Victory in Unwinnable War
By now, you’ve heard or seen the news: President Obama (D-IL) has accepted the resignation of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who had until now been in charge of the coalition’s erstwhile efforts in Afghanistan, and is attempting to demote General David Betray Us Petraeus from CENTCOM commander to czar of the eastern front of the Global War on Terror Isolated Effort to Diplomatically Prevent Man-Caused, Non-Islam-Related | Read More »
A Disconnected Congress
The House of Representatives spent much of yesterday discussing H.ConRes. 248, the Afghanistan War Powers Resolution, sponsored by Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH). The resolution would have required the president to remove all U.S. troops in Afghanistan within 30 days of the resolution being signed into law unless the president felt it would not be safe to do so. In that case, the president would then | Read More »
Let’s see what we find at random stops around the interweb thingy……..
For starters, here’s what I hinted at earlier today as part of a comment you probably didn’t see…… The Parliament Of World Religions. Melbourne Australia played host to this lovely little gathering of individuals and organizations. www.parliamentofreligions.org ————— If you didn’t know already, this organization is home base for the “Coexist” people. =============== The Congressional Muslim Staffers Association. www.congressionalmuslims.org The Congressional Muslim Staffers Association(CMSA) is | Read More »

Keeping his eye on the ball in Afghanistan.

Hurry Up and Wait
Issuing urgent petitions for change even before the election–crisis, urgency and fear mongering have become a predictable repertoire for Barack Obama. In an interview with Daniel Schorn of 60 Minutes, candidate Obama expressed his sense of urgency for the country when asked why he was anxious to run, “You know the truth is I’m not…[but] We have a narrow window to solve some of the | Read More »
Don’t Be “BLUE”…just “DUCK”
The President and First Lady are being criticized for going out on a date, while American soldiers were dying in Afghanistan. Addressing the controversy, Barack and Shelley, bubbling over with warmth took a couple of minutes to speak to the press, while entering a restaurant in Washington DC on their 17th anniversary. The President told the gathering press that The BLUE DUCK TAVERN was specifically chosen | Read More »
Bruce Ackerman: Blame Shifter
I haven’t read much of Bruce Ackerman, and after persuing this, I can say that I haven’t missed a thing. His basic thesis is that General McChrystal is insubordinate because he disagrees with the Biden Magic Secret Ninja Plan, that the general supports the plan that he created, and that the 66-page report was leaked to the Washington Post. What a ridiculous article. McChrystal differed | Read More »
Well, our President took time off from his busy schedule to lend his weight to Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympic Games. And fell flat on his face. The games went to Rio de Janeiro instead of Chicago. In fact Chicago had the least votes among the finalists. While Obama no doubt expected to be carried through the city on the shoulders of adulating fans, | Read More »
