Obama, 'red lines' and why our enemies are laughing out loud!


Barack Obama rhetoric is worthless and, if our enemies and allies ever had any doubt about that fact, after he moved his 'red line' in Syria they are now 100% certain that it is the unfortunate truth!

Barack Obama painted the United States into a corner by establishing a 'red line' in Syria over the use of chemical weapons there that has effectively locked the country into a damned if you do, damned if you don't scenario.

On the one hand we have the al-Qaeda infested rebels and on the other we have a maniacal despot currently in power. These are two groups that should be allowed to destroy each other.

That said, if Barack Obama's rhetoric is going to ever be taken seriously he needs to take action in whatever way he chooses to do it.

That because Iran, North Korea, Russia, China and all other countries around the world are intently watching to see if this mans words mean anything.

From his statement at a press conference today I think that all of our worst fears have been realized!

On the question of his 'red line' and the use of chemical weapons, this is what our Commander-in-Chief had to say:

He would not say that the "red line" he had previously identified had been crossed.

"What we now have is evidence that chemical weapons have been used inside of Syria, but we don't know how they were used, when they were used, who used them. We don't have a chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened," Obama said at the White House in a press conference marking the first 100 days of his second term. "When I am making decisions about America's national security and the potential for taking additional action in response to chemical weapon use, I've got to make sure I've got the facts." (Politico)

Two-question political quiz!


Because things are not always how they seem to be!
Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three candidates.

Candidate A.
Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with an astrologist. He's  had two mistresses.   He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.
He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C.
He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, only drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife. Which of these candidates would be your choice?

-------------------------------------------------------








Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston  Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question: If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.
While the questions and answers are relatively accurate the larger lesson here is that things are not always as obvious as they appear to be!

This might be a good lesson for Americans who take the current Obama administration at face value while ignoring, and therefore certainly not connecting, all of the dots out there which potentially may indicate something else altogether!

'Teen Mom' sex tape and American society in decline!


Apparently for much of America it's all about reality T.V. and smut as "Teen Mom' sells her sex tape for close to $1,000,000!

Apparently the film success of Kim Kardashian in a role that almost single-handedly led her to fame and fortune is an attractive road map for other young women as well!

'Vivid Entertainment recently acquired the rights to the Farrah Abraham sex tape, and Steve Hirsch could not be more excited about his new XXX purchase.
He immediately drew parallels to a sex tape legend, as well.
"I'm happy to confirm we have purchased it," he said of Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, which he sought "as vigorously as any sex tape we've ever pursued."
"We felt it was worth it, not only because of Farrah’s popularity, but because the footage itself is amazing. I think many fans will be shocked at how truly explicit it is."
"Farrah is gorgeous, sexy and absolutely uninhibited. Farrah's looks remind me of a young Kim Kardashian and we all know how her story turned out...'

PC outrage of the day!


The PC outrage of the day has generously been provided by government leaders in Washington State who have legally manipulated-changed the English language in order to avoid offending anyone!

The following words have been changed in order to avoid any unintentional offending through the use of words that contain, in the warped mind of government officials there, any semblance of gender bias:

Fisherman is now fisher,
Penmanship is now handwriting
Freshman is now first-year student

Don't these people have anything better to do with their time and the taxpayers money?

Apparently not but in the spirit of government incompetence they have missed quite a few that could have easily made the list. From Carpe Diem:

“Other states that have passed gender-neutral constitutional
manpersondates include California, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and Utah. At least nine other states are currently considering gender-neutral legislation.
“Words matter,” said Liz Watson, a National Wo
menperson‘s Law Center senior adviser. “This is important in changing hearts and minds.”
MP: Just wondering, does the 
manpersonddate in New York mean that Manhattan will now become Per
sondaugherhattan?  And in general, what about all of the gender-biased words likemanuscript, manifest, maneuver, mannerism, romantic, dismantle, human, mankind,manipulate, performance, semantic, showmanship, sportsman, workmanship, documentary, person, etc., the list goes on forever? Where does it stop? For example, will a “bachelor’s degree” now become a “single-person’s” degree? (Source)

Hungary's shoes of death!


A good friend of mine recently returned from a trip to Budapest, Hungary where he and his wife went to visit with a Jewish scholar spending a year on sabbatical there!


First they came for the communists,
 and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, 
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, 
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
 and I didn't speak out because I was Protestant.
Then they came for me, 
and there was no one left to speak out...

This particular friend is much more religious than I am and in fact, when questions concerning the Jewish faith arise, we often seek his guidance as we jokingly refer to him as rabbi.

He and his wife told us about their trip to Budapest at a Sabbath dinner we enjoyed recently at their house. I bring up this trip in the context of the resurgence of antisemitism across Europe.

And Hungary is certainly one of the worst examples of this rising tide of hate.

In fact Hungary typifies the analogy of a fish rotting from the head down as there is a tone of anti-Jewish rhetoric and sentiment emanates from political parties and from the highest reaches of government and trickles down from there.

My friends told of the wife of the scholar being stopped by police in the subway suspected of not paying her fare. After a lengthy discussion they dismissed her with some reference to Auschwitz.

In December, Balazs Lenhardt, an independent Member of Parliament, burned an Israeli flag in front of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry during an anti-Zionist protest--one in which participants shouted, "To Auschwitz with you all." In the past several months, Jewish cemeteries have been vandalized, Holocaust monuments have been damaged, and swastikas have been painted on synagogue walls. On March 14, professors at Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest found stickers affixed to their office door that read, "Jews! The university belongs to us, not you! Regards, the Hungarian students." (Source)

I relate this story because of the fact that Jews in the United States in general are blind to the sharp rise of anti-Jewish hate and believe that the lessons that the world learned from WWII, Nazi Germany and the Holocaust have been lasting ones.

The Anne Frank Foundation reported severe anti-Semitic acts have increased by more than 50 percent, with 2,700 incidents reported overall in 2011. MDI, a group that tracks Internet hate lists anti-Semitism/Holocaust denial as accounting for 28 percent of online hate in 2012, with sites targeting Muslims (who outnumber Dutch Jews by 20 to 1) at 18 percent. (Source)

They believe that the phrase 'Never Again' describes a world of tolerance where the straight-out murder of innocents based purely on religion and heritage could never happen again.


If the Boston Marathon massacre taught Americans anything it's that hate and evil exists for reasons many in our society cannot understand or begin to comprehend. But the topic of Islamic extremism is for another time.

*Last year the Dutch Prime Minister reiterated the government’s refusal to apologize for the apathy that the Dutch government-in-exile demonstrated toward the roundup and murder of most of the country’s Jews during the Holocaust. Why? The Jewish community had not asked for one he argued. Almost all other European governments have since apologized or admitted guilt for the conduct of authorities under Germany’s occupation. (Source)

The most stark story told at dinner related to the picture at the top of the article.

Apparently the Hungarian's had resisted the call for the extermination of Jews for much of the WWII.

That ended in 1944 when the Germans saw the writing for their defeat on the wall and the Hungarians began to send Jews to their death in the concentration camp crematoriums.

As time went on, however, they were not satisfied with the pace of murder and began to line Jews up on the bank of the Danube, mow the innocent men, women and children down where they stood and then push them into the river.

This simple memorial of shoes pays tribute to those who died in such an horrific way. Looking at them I could not even begin to imagine the feeling of knowing that death, for no reason other than being Jewish, was imminent.

"The Algemeiner reports on a terrible assault against a Jewish college student in East Lansing, Michigan. At a weekend party, a group of men allegedly asked Zachary Tennen whether he was Jewish before giving the Nazi salute and viciously assaulting him, according to his family:

Tennen, a sophomore at Michigan State University, was approached by the men at a party early on Sunday and asked if he was Jewish, his mother said.  The men proceeded to raise their right arms in a Nazi salute and said “Heil Hitler”, before beating Tennen unconscious.  According to Tennen’s mother, 20 people watched while her son had his mouth stapled by the two suspects..." (Source)

For Jews today the saying 'Never Again' has become a catch phrase with little real meaning behind it.

Many Americans believe that the terrorist murder committed on 9/11/2001 and the wish of Islamic extremists to wipe all non-Muslims off of the face of the earth is in the past and we are out of danger.

I say:

'A nod is as good as a wink to a blind man!'

Norman Mattoon Thomas = Barack Hussein Obama?


It is uncanny how the statements made by Norman Mattoon Thomas seem to mirror the philosophy and policy of Barack Obama!

Whether or not this quote actually came from Norman Mattoon Thomas, from someone else or was never said by anyone at all, the philosophy it states about stealth socialism sounds a whole lot like Barack Obama's!

The reality is that whoever said it, the United States is now living under the reign of a President who believes in it and is leading the country down the slippery slope towards European-style socialism!

And while the American sheeple follow obediently along, we watch in real-time how well this style of government and economy is working overseas!

Video of 5-year old jihadists-in-training!


What Americans, possibly including our Commander-in-Chief, don't understand or are unwilling to understand about our enemy in the global war on terror!

Barack Obama likes to tell the American people that with the killing of Osama bin Laden al-Qaeda is now fragmented, on the run and well on the way to being defeated.

Is he merely naive or is there something more, although I believe I have made my opinion on that subject crystal clear (Manchurian President).

One need only look to the Boston terrorists who were seemingly radicalized both at home in Chechnya and here in the United States at a Boston mosque to see the fallacy in that argument.

In reality my greater concern is that the more you connect the dots vis a vis Boston, Egypt, Syria, Iran, North Korea, Benghazi etc you find that this Obama-led WH is somehow either complicit in trying to weaken our position in the global war on terror or else the largest group of useful idiots we have seen in Washington since the Carter administration!

The sad reality, as this video so clearly shows, is that there are no shortages of teachers or pupils at Terror U.!

Religion in a London Black Cab with NSFW video of the Kid from Brooklyn!


This is what can happen when a passenger tries to force his religious beliefs on a London Black Cab driver!

Reminds me a little bit of the Kid From Brooklyn opining on foot baths at LaGuardia airport (video below)! The delivery is different but the message is the same.

A devout Arab Muslim entered a black cab in London. He curtly asked the cabbie to turn off the radio because as decreed by his religious teaching, he must not listen to music because in the time of the prophet there was no music, especially Western music which is the music of the infidel.

The cab driver politely switched off the radio, stopped the cab and opened the door.

The Arab Muslim asked him, "What are you doing?"

The cabbie answered, "In the time of the prophet there were no taxis, so piss off and wait for a camel!"


Kid from Brooklyn: NSFW and most definitely politically incorrect!

Tsarnaev brothers caught and killed: Cause for celebration or concern?


While the celebration in Boston after the capture and killing of the Tsarnaev brothers is completely understandable, Americans need to understand that these two may be only part of the problem!

And Americans, by nature, don't!

For the most part Americans cannot conceive of the evil that exists in the minds of some people and groups, nor do they understand the lack of value that they place on human life including their own!

In Israel after a terrorist is captured or killed there is no celebration because they have sadly learned to live in an environment where all of their neighbors (and many non-neighbors) would like them to cease to exist.

The United States on-the-other-hand has been hit by terrorist attacks sporadically yet viciously, and while celebration after the Tsaernaev brothers were neutralized is understandable, it likely is not the end!

Read these articles for a better idea of the bigger picture:

U.S. antiterrorism: 'The fish rots from the head down'!


When it comes to antiterrorism under the Obama administration the President has been AWOL, leading to the tragedies in Benghazi and Boston massacres!

And while the country continues to wait for a full and accurate explanation for the attack and murders that occurred in Benghazi, we will now be forced to wait for the reasons why the FBI dropped the ball on the older of two brothers in Boston.

Unfortunately, if history is any guide the Obama administration will do everything within its power to bury the truth.

In the meantime the article at PJMedia written by Robert L. Simon on the culture of Washington today when it comes to antiterrorism is an extremely worthwhile read!

Boston and America … Where the Fish Rots from the Top

Apropos of the #BostonBombers, CNN’s Jake Tapper tweeted this weekend: Big q is why FBI didnt keep an eye on/talk to Tamerlan Tsarnaev after he returned from Chechnya last year. So far from FBI: crickets.

Tapper’s right. The FBI is not looking particularly good as far as their surveillance of murderous Caucasian Islamists on our soil is concerned. And Tamerlan, evidently , left quite a trail, from domestic violence to reportedly attacking an imam for holding up MLK as someone to emulate. Not exactly subtle. They were even warned about Tamerlan by the Russians apparently.

The Feds must have been pretty clueless to ignore all this.

Probably. But I offer in their defense one of the hoariest of cliches: The fish rots from the top.

The Obama administration and most of those working for it have taken Islamic terrorism about as seriously as I am taking the Memphis Grizzlies/L.A. Clippers game currently on my TV — in other words, at best mildly interested. Not being a fan of either team, I could watch — I could switch to something else.

And when Islamic terrorism does rear its head, as in Benghazi, the administration evinces something worse than disinterest — dishonesty, lies, coverup and prevarication (sometimes aided by Tapper’s CNN cohort Candy Crowley).

Video: Is there a Saudi connection to the Boston Marathon massacre?


Could there be Saudi ties to the Boston Marathon bombers as was first suspected?

While the two terrorists are Chechen, the memory or the Saudi Foreign Minister rushing to the White House after the bombing for an unscheduled meeting with Barack Obama remains an unexplained mystery (Boston conspiracy theory here).

So too does the story of the Saudi national who was in the hospital due to injuries suffered from the bombing and a person of interest until he wasn't, and yet who is still being deported.

Recognize this Communist 'Plan of Action'?


Does the Communist 'Plan of Action' from this Chicago Tribune editorial circa the Great Depression year of 1934 sound anything like the Obama 'Plan of Action' for the United States today?

It certainly does!

EDITORIAL CARTOON FROM CHICAGO TRIBUNE

It is very important that you closely inspect the 1934 cartoon below. 

Keep in mind there were Communist and Marxist operatives in the USA in 1934 
when we were in the middle of the Great Depression.

This cartoon was in the Chicago Tribune in 1934.

Look carefully at the Communist’s "Plan of Action" in the lower left corner.

Does this seem familiar?

Must Read NY Post article: A Tale of Two Terrorists


In light of the Boston bombing perpetrated by the two brothers from Chechnya, this article explores the unbelievable path of another terrorists life! 

Incredibly it has led to the front of a classroom at Columbia University and a certain amount of hero worship bestowed upon her by the Left!

'Somewhere near Boston early Monday morning, he packed a bomb in a bag. It was by all accounts relatively crude — a pressure cooker, explosives, some wires, ball bearings and nails . . . nails which, hours later, doctors would struggle to remove from the flesh of bleeding victims.

His motive is unclear. His intent is not: It was to maximize injury, suffering, pain, trauma and, yes, death.

Perhaps Monday’s bomber will be caught, perhaps not.

Perhaps Monday’s bomber will be offered a teaching job at Columbia University.

Forty-three years ago last month, Kathy Boudin, now a professor at Columbia but then a member of the Weather Underground, escaped an explosion at a bomb factory operated in a townhouse in Greenwich Village. The story is familiar to people of a certain age...'

Boston conspiracy theory: Obama, the Saudis and a 'dark-skinned male'?


Update April 19, 2013: One Boston Marathon bombing suspect has been killed in a shootout while the other, his brother, remains on the run. Preliminary reports are that they are Muslims originally from Chechnya.

Update April 20, 2013: The other brother has been caught, is alive and will hopefully be named an enemy combatant although knowing our President and Attorney General as we do that is doubtful.

While the brothers are Chechen, not Saudi, I stand by the questions asked below. For instance who was the Saudi national and where is evidence the Saudis did not in some way fund this terrorist attack as they likely funded the attack in Benghazi?
Update April 18th 5:00 PM: Suspect 1 and Suspect 2 from the FBI website
Am I paranoid? Perhaps, but does the Obama White House actually already know who the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing are? (Note: I was forced to listen to Michael Savage last night last night which is something that could potentially make even the most sane among us paranoid!)

And could the Boston Marathon tragedy be just one more chapter in the ongoing saga that asks, Is Barack Obama the Manchurian President?

Whether it's the lack of any action after the attack on our embassy and the killing of Americans in Benghazi, providing F-16's to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt or so many other confusing national security and foreign policy moves, the question is an honest one!

And now, months after Americans died and the President's actions in Benghazi continue to go unaddressed, the nation is faced with another tragedy only this time on U.S. soil.

I speak of course of the heinous crime and likely terrorist act in Boston which has led to unimaginable human loss and human tragedy.

It has also led, as issues involving this President often do, to creating many more questions being asked than answers being provided.

I present a crude Boston Marathon timeline with links to the applicable stories below but, in a nutshell, some of the questions that need to be asked and answered are:
  • Who exactly is the Saudi national (Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi) injured in the bomb blast, questioned in the hospital, removed as a person of interest and who is now reportedly being deported? What is the extent of his familial ties to al-Qaeda and why, if not a person of interest, is he being deported,
  • How could a somewhat credible reporter could go on air and get the facts to a story so very wrong,
  • Why was the White House was so quick and emphatic in denying his report, 
  • Who are the 'dark-skinned men' with black backpacks and earplugs in the series of photographs that seem to have disappeared from the websites of basically every news source, and why are these men acting the way that they are acting,
  • Why, if the authorities have been asking the public to send in pictures or videos of anything or anyone suspicious to help identify the perpetrators, have they suppressed pictures of the guys that most likely did it, and finally
  • Why did the Saudi Foreign Minister visit President Obama at the White House in a hastily arranged meeting that was therefore not on the White House Public Schedule?
Here are the links to articles that may not definitively answer those questions but that will certainly make you scratch your head and go hmmmm:
  1. Who was the released Saudi man questioned in the hospital? Article here
  2. Photos of men with earplugs and packpacks at the Boston Marathon that seem to have disappeared from traditional news sites. Pictures here
  3. John King reporting on the 'dark-skinned male'! Article here
  4. Why was the Saudi Foreign Minister making an unscheduled visit to the White House to speak with President Obama? What was the urgency? Article here
So are all of these clues purely innocent or is this a case of looking like a duck, smelling like a duck and acting like a duck? You read and you decide and hopefully at some point the actual facts will be discovered.

The Boston Marathon tragedy and the gun control debate!


If the tragedy in Boston shows us anything it's that criminals, sociopaths and terrorists will try to find a way, no matter what the law says!

Gun control will only penalize law-abiding Americans while having little to no effect on those who are hell-bent on breaking the law!

Is Pamela Geller an extremist?

Boston Marathon Update (April 16, 2013 7:30 AM): These reports go hand in hand with the article on Pamela Geller below! 

The man described who was taken into custody may have something to do with the massacre in Boston and he may not, but isn't it ironic that if he does it would be another Saudi Arabian national involved in a terrorist attack on U.S. soil!

"CBS: Saudi Man In Custody Was Tackled By Bystanders At Boston Marathon," by Jim Edwards for the Business Insider, April 15 (thanks to Andrew Bostom):
The Saudi Arabian man who is reportedly in police custody following the Boston Marathon bombing was chased and tackled by bystanders shortly after the blast, according to CBS.

Senior correspondent John Miller, a former assistant director of the FBI, reported this:

There is an individual in custody … he is not free to go.

He is a Saudi national who was near the scene of the blast. When the blast happened he began to run. Now, in context, a lot of people began to run. A civilian who thought he was acting suspiciously chased him down and tackled him and then turned him over to Boston police, saying, I saw this guy hanging around over there acting suspiciously. And then he ran. That may mean a lot, it may mean nothing at all..." (Source)

And then there's this: Muslims on Facebook celebrate Boston Marathon terror attack (Source)

Is Pamela Geller an extremist? begins below.


On Sunday Pamela Geller spoke at a Great Neck, New York synagogue about the dangers faced both in the United States and abroad from Islamic extremism!

Yet in our politically correct world where up is down, down is up and a great many people don't recognize who our real enemy is, Ms. Geller has naturally been branded an extremist and Islamophobe.

She has been called a racist, bigot and a Muslim-hater.

Forget about the fact that Islamic extremists perpetrated the worst terrorist attack ever on U.S. soil 9/11/2001.

Forget about the fact that the rhetoric from Islamic extremist groups calls for death and destruction to all who don't believe as they do.

Forget about the fact that the stated goal for these same groups is that Sharia Law become the law of the land across the globe along with the call for the establishment of a global caliphate.

After taking a look at the quotes below from actual extremists, however, Pamela Geller is anything but an extremist.

And while certainly the majority of Muslims are not extremists, isn't she is merely a teller of a truth that many are either too blind or too consumed with political correctness to see?

al-Qaeda quotes:

“We destroyed the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and Allah ordered us to... punish everyone who stands alongside (US President George W.) Bush,”

“Congratulations to the Islamic nation, to our sheikh Osama abu Abdullah ( Osama bin Laden ), to our emir Mullah Mohammad Omar, to sheikh Ayman Zawahiri (bin Laden's deputy)... for the destruction of America, which is at the forefront of evil.”

Osama bin Laden quotes:

"The war is between us and the Jews. Any country that steps into the same trench as the Jews has only itself to blame."

"We should fully understand our religion. Fighting is a part of our religion and our Sharia [an Islamic legal code]. Those who love God and his Prophet and this religion cannot deny that. Whoever denies even a minor tenet of our religion commits the gravest sin in Islam."

"Every American man is an enemy to us."

"We--with God's help--call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God's order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan's U.S. troops and the devil's supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson."

Miscellaneous quotes of hate (source):

"The Quran obliges every able Muslim to participate in jihad and fight in the way of Allah those who fight you, and kill them wherever you find them ... an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
-- Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Underwear Bomber

"If they are white kill ‘em all. Why kill the women? Why kill the babies? They are just innocent blue-eyed babies? Because god dammit they are going to grow up one day to rule your babies. Kill them now. Why kill the women in South Africa? I say kill the women because the women are the military manufacturing center. And every nine months they lay down on their backs and reinforcement rolls out from between their legs, so shut down the military manufacturing center by killing the white woman. Why kill the older crackers? The old crippled crackers in South Africa. How in the hell you think they got old? They got old oppressing and killing black people. Kill 'em all. Kill the faggot. Kill the lesbian. And after you've killed them all. I say then you go to the god damn grave, and dig 'em up, and then kill 'em a-god-damn gain because they didn't die hard enough."
-- Khalid Muhammad, current member of the New Black Panthers Party

"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future."
-- Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR's current communications director

"At the end of the day, innocent people, when we say innocent people we mean Muslims...if you are non-Muslim then you are guilty... I must have hatred toward everything not-Islam."
-- Imam Anjem Choudary

"I am telling you that my religion [Islam] doesn't tolerate other religions. It doesn't tolerate. The only one law which needs to be spread, it can be here or anywhere else has to be Islam."
-- Cleric Abdul Nacer Benbrika in an interview with ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

"Let the entire world hear me. Our hostility to the Great Satan [America] is absolute... I conclude my speech with the slogan that will continue to reverberate on all occasions so that nobody will think that we have weakened. Regardless of how the world has changed after 11 September, Death to America will remain our reverberating and powerful slogan: Death to America"
-- Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary-General of Lebanon's Hezbollah
