Watcher's Council Nominations 'Four Tickets to Paradise' Edition! (Martha's Vineyard Photos)


This edition of the Watcher's Council including music and photos  is dedicated to President Obama who, along with the First Family, will be vacationing on Martha's Vineyard!

So while the President tells us he understands the economic pain and struggles of the middle class he certainly doesn't suffer through such pain and suffering himself.

And while no one can begrudge a President a vacation, even one who really doesn't work very hard or seem to need or deserve one, you would think that common sense would say to cut back a little even if only for the perception value.

The only reason I can see for insisting on opulence is that the President's words and rhetoric are only that and that he and the First Lady don't really give a crap about the pain or perception of the middle class and know that the mainstream media will protect them anyway.


'President Barack Obama and his family will travel to Martha's Vineyard for eight days beginning on Aug. 10.

Architect Rick Sundberg, now of Sundberg Kennedy Ly-Au Young Architects, confirmed Monday that the Obamas will stay in a home that he redesigned. The $7.6 million home is located on 9.5 acres in Chilmark, the wealthiest town on the island.

The home was built in 1961 and renovated in 2006, according to Sundberg's website.

It features a private master suite with its own den. An open floor plan includes pond and ocean views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. There's also a small basketball court.' (Source)




The Watcher's Council!

For those who may be enjoying their first Watcher's Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.

A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to be part of!

Each week members select and submit an article that they have written in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.

While you may not always agree with what you read, that fact alone may make the experience much more valuable!

Once all of the nominated articles have been received at an undisclosed location by the Council leader, a location that is well hidden somewhere on the Left Coast of the United States, the Watchers Council members review and vote for their favorite entries.

These votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner has been chosen for the Grand Prize.

This Grand Prize which consists of the appreciation of ones peers.

In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate source for conservative opinion, commentary and analysis!

So without further ado the Watcher's Council nominations for the week of July 29, 2013 are...?

Obama Posterama (19 of them) aka Fail to the Chief!


Scandals too numerous to mention which President Obama likes to call distractions and phony is proof positive that the tune Hail to the Chief should be changed to Fail to the Chief!

And on top of the scandals that include Benghazi, NSAgate and IRSgate we have the scourge of Obama administration failed foreign policy exemplified by the current Egyptian leadership vacuum with rioting in the street and support of the rebels in the Syrian civil war which is equivalent to supporting the other side.

In other words the gang that couldn't shoot straight has no idea who our weapons are going to which means more likely than not they are going to terrorists!

The final straw is the fact that the U.S. economy, with all of the money being injected by the Federal Reserve, is still in the crapper.

In other words, Fail to the Chief!

Obama GIF-mania: Thirteen GIFs dedicated to President 'Fake Scandal' himself!


What better way to start the week than with an assortment of GIFs dedicated to  our 'Distractions, Fake Scandals and Washington Taking its Eye off the Ball' President Barack Obama himself!

For those of you who turn off the sound whenever the President begins to speak (I am one of them) or who may not watch Jay Carney or any of the other Democrat talking heads spew their rhetoric, the phrase mentioned above of 'distraction, fake scandals and Washington taking its eye off of the ball' is the new mantra of the Democrat Party.

This phrase is of course an attempt by this administration to distract the American people with the hope that we ignore the multitude of actual scandals and lack of any leadership that is coming from Barack Obama and his band of merry men and women.

The question is whether the 50% or so of the American people who seem to believe anything that comes out of Obama's mouth will finally start to see through the B.S.?

And by the way if Washington is taking its eye off of the ball, isn't Obama the defacto manager of the team?

The Weiner-Huma-Hillary Unholy Alliance!


And the answer to the question of WHY Huma Abedin continues to stand by the side of her sexually deviant husband, Anthony 'The Whiner' Weiner?

What is this bond between Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin and why does it survive the public humiliation she suffers at the hands of Weiner sexual deviation of the highest order?

And, in the context of the 2016 presidential race, where does the Hillary piece fit in with this incredibly dysfunctional married couple that makes the simple dysfunction of a cheating husband in the Clinton's marriage seem like child's play? 

Let us not forget that Abedin has played a role in Hillary's political life or that Abedin has familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Is this really presidential material (Video)?
To answer these questions let us first take a look back to a TPC article and video from August 27, 2012 titled 'Has the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated Barack Obama's State Department?'

Unfortunately the video portion of the presentation has ironically, or maybe predictably, been pulled from YouTube.

Is Huma Abedin a person you want privy to top secret U.S. intelligence? After watching this video the answer is obvious but like much in the Obama administration real answers are extremely hard to come by!

With parents who have been "deeply involved with the Muslim Brotherhood" (Video 32 seconds in) and with Huma Abedin previously on the Executive Board of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Muslim Student's Association (MSA) at Georgetown, how exactly did she become the personal assistant to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

As a member of the MSA she would likely have been required to take the Oath of Allegiance that can be heard at 3 minutes 50 seconds into the video below. Among other things the Pledge says that "Jihad is my spirit" and "Paradise is my goal".

Only in the Obama administration could anyone with the background described here be in a position to have security clearance where what they know could potentially do harm to the nation! Was any vetting of Huma Abedin actually done and if it was don't the American people have a right to see it?

Fast forwarding to the current political abomination taking place in New York City politics in which Anthony Weiner has not pulled out of the Mayoral race while at the same time dragging his wife Huma Abedin down into the mud with him, the question of why she is going along for the ride sits front and center in the minds of many?

From an article at the blog Boker tov, Boulder titled 'O Huma' comes some explanation for this unholy alliance that on its surface seems so flawed but that appears to serve the political and ideological needs of both parties involved.

This is the beginning of the article and I would highly recommend reading it in its entirety not only for a look at the Weiner-Huma alliance but more importantly (for the United States) in the context of the 2016 presidential election and the alliance between Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration!

  • "The marriage to Huma Abedin, a Clinton insider, enables Anthony Weiner to resurrect a debased career and deflect attention from his psychotic antics even as he continues them."
  • "The marriage to Anthony Weiner, a prominent Jewish progressive, enables Huma Abedin to deflect attention from her associations with various Islamic supremacists...."

Hillary Clinton: Is this really presidential material? (Video)


Compared to Barack Obama she may be, but not in the context of the type of leader that the United States needs!

And most certainly, given her performance or lack thereof in the Benghazi massacre and the cover-up in its aftermath she should be banned from public service.

This is the first, but by no means the last, look at who and what Hillary Clinton is and why she is not qualified to be POTUS.

The Watcher's Council 'Weiner, whiner wacko' Edition


The Watcher's Council!

This weeks edition of the Watcher's Council is dedicated to New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner who, if elected or even simply remains in the race, would turn the political process into the biggest farce since Bill Clinton set the bar for the sexual conduct of politicians at such an extremely low height!

Is Fukushima another Obama administration scandal?


Is Fukushima at all equivalent to Benghazi?

Pardon my cynicism but watching the slow drip of information and faster drip of misinformation being disseminated about Fukushima it is almost as if the Japanese government and TEPCO executives took classes at Obama U. in the areas of scandal whitewashing and news suppression.

So while of course there is absolutely no correlation between these two events, the continuing dangers posed to Japan and the rest of the world from the crippled nuclear plant at Fukushima is being suppressed by the Japanese government and TEPCO as well as the Obama administration is hiding the truth about the events in Benghazi where four Americans died.

Along with its whitewashing of the IRS, NSA, James Rosen scandals as well as any other scandals currently known and those yet to be discovered!

So what's actually going on at the Fukushima nuclear power plant?

A mere 12 days ago TPC had provided an update on the story because generally there is little to no mention of it in the media.

'In the typical out of sight out of mind on to the next story methodology of the hit and run media, the disaster at Fukushima that resulted from the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 is not very well covered despite the fact that the story is very much ongoing.' TPC July 13, 2013

These are some articles that provide an update of the update.
