Obama v. Obama; General Officer Edition
So Obama sacked Gen. Stanley McChrystal (or as Barry is fond of calling the General; “Stan”) today, pretty much as expected thus showing himself to be a “take charge” kinda guy rather than the dithering indecisive clown some strawman someplace thought him to be originally. What was curious though was his choice of a replacement; General David Petraeus, who was CENTCOM commander and McChrystal’s former | Read More »
Ok, now Obama and Ken Salazar are just playing games with people’s jobs
The same day a federal court judge slammed the Obama administration and overturned their drilling moratorium, Ken Salazar turns around and says he’ll simply issue another stop order; WASHINGTON — Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says he will issue a new order imposing a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down the existing one. Salazar said in a statement Tuesday evening that the | Read More »
Gen. Stanley McChrystal; placed in a no-win position by his CinC?
Via a series of Tweets by Fox White House correspondent Major Garrett; An article due out at Rolling Stone magazine later this week is previewed by an AP piece at FoxNews.com describing how the embattled General McChrystal receives little to no support from the Administration nor those chosen by the Obama White House to work with the General. WASHINGTON — The top U.S. war commander | Read More »
What took Obama so long to get serious about the spill?
Let’s find out, shall we? Another good question is what took the GOP so long to get serious about cranking out some good videos? Could have a contest…something… Now back to Obama and the weird priorities highlighted in the video. When he does get involved, it’s only to demonize and muck things up anyway, so what’s the point? [UPDATE] I was just going to leave | Read More »
Who’s in charge of the spill incident in the Gulf? Nobody?
After weeks of discussion dithering trying to angle the spill for political gain, Obama decides that the best answer to dealing with the oil flowing from the Deepwater Horizon incident is to loose the hounds of hell (read BatBoy Waxman). Well Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal had enough, and eight days ago ordered barges to begin sucking oil off the Louisiana coasts on his own, in | Read More »
A Time for Choosing – Chuck DeVore
October 7, 2003, California had a choice to make; continue the leftist drooling of Governor Gray Davis, pick another leftist equally as bad, or try to find a conservative in the mold of Ronald Reagan to pick up the pieces. The two candidates conservatives in California had to choose from were Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Tom McClintock. Sadly, California chose Schwarzenegger over McClintock; fortunately Cruz Bustamante | Read More »
Ronald Reagan; June 6, 1984
h/t Blackfive Today, June 6, 2010, when The “History” Channel is showing some trucker marathon, the rest of us remember a different history. A history of sacrifice and greatness which may not be unique to world history in the modern professorial view, but it’s special to those of us whose families still choose to remember. Pointe-Du-Hoc; It was a nearly 100-meter-high cliff, with perpendicular sides | Read More »
Ari Fleischer re: Helen Thomas; “Fire her!”
After video surfaced of Helen Thomas making what to me was a “Go back where you came from” statement regarding Israel, I and most other thinking Americans were incensed. Many “came from” Auschwitz II-Birkenau, Belzec, Treblinka, Sobibór, Chelmno…want them to “go back” Helen? To what? The ovens? Even Sarah Palin spoke out; Helen Thomas press pals condone racist rant?Heaven forbid”esteemed”press corps represent society’s enlightened elite;Rest | Read More »
Director James Cameron sent back to Hollywood by “Gracious Morons” at BP
Apparently, Hollywood director James Cameron of “Avatar” and “Titanic” fame couldn’t contain himself when he saw the Deepwater Horizon disaster unfolding. Jumping up and down in his living room in front of his big screen TV, obviously thinking “Hey! I know all about this underwater stuff!” he came to a realization; “Over the last few weeks I’ve watched, as we all have, with growing horror | Read More »
So you don’t like the way Israeli commandos defend themselves?
It started with non-lethal paint balls filled with pepper-spray, which was responded to by pipes and knives. It ended with gunfire. Guess who won? After several days of produced uproar which included Hillary Clinton as US Secretary of State “officially” (I bet Obama claims he “wasn’t aware”) condemning Israel, an anonymous IDF Navy Commander said “Next time we’ll use more force“; “We boarded the ship | Read More »
Commander, United States Navy, Departing: Remembering Memorial Day 2009
“Memorial Day will forever mean something different to me“ From Skip Rohde; Memorial Day in Baghdad is not like it is in the States. Okay, so we got a full day off. Our little group was sitting around dinner in the DFAC last night discussing what our options were. Go to the beach? Nah – the drive down to Basrah is too long. To the | Read More »
Again, NYT pushes ideology over the lives of our troops
I don’t honestly know who involved in this is the worse douchebag, the New York Times for publishing this, or the leftist hack in the administration who leaked it. WASHINGTON — The top American commander in the Middle East has ordered a broad expansion of clandestine military activity in an effort to disrupt militant groups or counter threats in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and other | Read More »
A Gift from Mexico [UPDATED]
When Mexico’s President Felipe Calderón dissed the state of Arizona and the United States as a whole, he actually did us a favor; he gave us a microscope after bashing our immigration law to look at Mexican immigration law.
LA Lakers 128, Phoenix Suns 107; enough to shut the boycotters in LA up?
You would think Lakers Coach Phil Jackson, a person who comes generally at life from the left side of the court, would be immune from leftist attack, especially from the leftists in Los Angeles. You’d be wrong. ESPN contributor J.A. Adande, not exactly a right-winger, was interviewing Coach Jackson on the possibility of Jackson coaching the Lakers again next season, and then switched up the | Read More »
The California Governor’s race needs one of these
Not saying a woman couldn’t do it, just doubtful if the woman GOP candidate in the race today can. Same goes for the man. Meg Whitman and Steve Poizner seem to me to be two people looking for significance in their lives, much like Carly Fiorina in the Senate race. They have the money, and had power once and would like power again. Real leadership | Read More »
Does California REALLY want to boycott Arizona?
With the Phoenix (yes, in Arizona) Suns about to host the Los Angeles Lakers in Phoenix (yes, in Arizona) for game 1, the City of Los Angeles officially weighs in with a 13-1 vote approving yet another boycott of Arizona by a California city. What is really funny here is LA’s Mayor Antonio (Viva La Raza) Villaraigosa has already said he thinks a boycott of | Read More »
California Ballot Instructions
Take this And do this Any questions? Crossposted
A preview of tomorrow’s/yesterday’s California GOP Senate primary debate
Yesterday (Friday) at the Los Angeles Museum of Tolerance, Chuck DeVore, Tom Campbell, and Carly Fiorina faced each other in a debate where the candidates were anything but tolerant of of one another; Although occasional pot shots were taken at Campbell for being too liberal, the most heated exchanges were between DeVore and Fiorina, with DeVore pushing hard to establish himself as the only true | Read More »
Not all “Immigrants” think Arizona was wrong with passage of SB1070
Via Garret Lewis Again, I stress legal immigration. Come to this country and contribute. Come to this country legally. The left wants to make this about race (as usual) when it doesn’t matter what country you’re from or what race you are. It shouldn’t matter. Wasn’t that one of the ideas set forth in Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech? I have a | Read More »
Still MORE Us versus Them protests, the Left Agenda on full display
Yesterday I posted a video which was put out by secularstupidest.com (whose web site and blog are being re-vamped at the moment and the url now points to their EBay site). The video showed some of the differences between “their” protests (which are covered by the media, and heavily edited to appear peaceful) and “our” protests (which are mom and pop affairs, but yet the | Read More »
