Obama dog analogy, Greg Gutfeld-style!


As a loyal watcher of The Five and Red Eye I have come to know Greg Gutfeld as a purveyor of biting political analogy!

After the intense personal pain of watching the foreign policy and national security charade of Barack Obama and his 'national security' team over a Syria response, I thought of a couple of my own.

1) Punitive action taken against Syria now, after what is effectively 9 months of inaction (How We Got Here: A Timeline Of The Syria Chemical Weapons Saga), would be like punishing your dog on Friday for peeing on your floor on Monday!

2) The lack of  US international credibility about fear of military reprisal based on Syria's use of chemical weapons many months ago is like a parent with an unruly child on a plane flying at 30,000 feet threatening to open the door and throw him out!

Maybe these aren't up to Gutfeld standards but I hopefully made my point.

John Kerry reported for the wrong duty this time! (Video)


Does John Kerry have any regrets taking on the job as Barack Obama's Secretary of State or are the two men cut from the same cloth?

While I don't have a very high opinion of John Kerry (see 'Axis of Idiots' circa 2009) I don't envy his being the schlemiel*, or is it the schlimazel, as the Secretary of State under Barack Obama.

John Kerry Video Flashback


The articles below are from the past week or so and clearly show how the job of SOS is akin to being the guy who was ordered to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic after it hit the iceberg.

Barack Obama: Foreign policy eunuch!

Obama must have missed Coalition Building 101 at president school!

Obama is caught between Iraq and a Syrian redline!

Is Obama's Syria endgame getting Israel attacked?

*The schlemiel spills the soup into the schlimazel's lap.

Is Obama's Syria endgame getting Israel attacked?


If there is no strategic good that can come from lobbing missiles into Syria and then walking away, could an Iranian attack on Israel be part of the plan?

To be clear this is not necessarily a conspiracy theory but a question that is based on prior treatment of Israel by the Obama administration.

And, before you answer, please read 'Coalition Building 101' and see if any of these 11 steps have been taken by President Obama.

If they haven't then what the hell is the strategic plan here?

Obama must have missed Coalition Building 101 at president school!

Obama administration national security team!
Barack Obama obviously must have missed that class in President school along with every other class on foreign policy and national security!

The best method for any country that wants to build a coalition of the willing might be to watch Barack Obama failing miserably at it and do the exact opposite!

Coalition Building 101
  1. You need to be a proven and trusted leader,
  2. As the coalition organizer you need to have a circle of advisors who are beyond reproach and who are also trusted by potential coalition partners,
  3. You need to be viewed by potential coalition members as a committed leader, not as a reluctant warrior who is in it for self-serving reasons,
  4. You should be viewed by members of your own government as having the right reasons for wanting to go to war and not as a weak leader searching for a 'tail wagging the dog' diversion,
  5. Your rhetoric needs to be believed as having the will for action behind it and not empty,
  6. You need to have a track record of meaning what you say, saying what you mean and of being willing to do the unpopular for the good of your country and the potential coalition partners,
  7. You need to select  as potential coalition members only those who share your commitment,
  8. You need to have a well thought out and well articulated entrance strategy, mission goal and an exit strategy,
  9. You must be able to articulate to your government, citizens and potential coalition partners exactly who is the friend and who is the foe in the fight. Ambiguity or uncertainty makes action a non-starter,
  10. You should be able to describe in detail all of the possible outcomes both good and bad and the contingency plans for each,
  11. You need to have the respect of, or at the very least be feared by, those who choose not to join the coalition.

Obama is caught between Iraq and a Syrian redline!


Already the weakest and most ineffective Commander-in-Chief since Jimmy Carter Obama now stands to lose his coalition for an attack on Syria!

So what will he do if he does?

Does he act unilaterally or do what he typically does which is to cede U.S. national security and foreign policy to the United Nations as an out?

Wait and see!*

Flashback:

Editor's Note August 28, 2013: As time drags on and the noise from Russia, Iran and Syria ramps up regarding the potential for retaliation over a strike against the Syrian government, it makes even more clear the devastating effect that the Obama administration foreign policy strategy of empty rhetoric, false and mobile red lines, indecision and feet dragging has had on US national security and the security of our allies!

From August 22, 2013: 'Barack Obama: Foreign policy eunuch!'

'Should this sign hang over the Obama White House?

This is a President who, due to his failed policies and empty rhetoric, has painted the United States with his rancid brush of perceived weakness, ineptness and impotence!

Editor's Note: As you read this article the President is spending his time and our money on a politically driven bus tour promoting college for all instead of working in the White House addressing some of the more important world crises mentioned below...'

Read the rest of this article here.

*TPC does not underestimate the enormity or complexity of this problem as both sides of the fight are our enemy but this White House has had more than enough time to have developed a strategy and should not be beginning the decision making process now!

Americans, pull your collective heads out of your collective asses!


Would any of these words be spoken General George Patton if were alive today?

It's very likely they would have because General Patton lived at a time in American history when men were men and the United States had leaders who were more concerned with freedom, upholding the Constitution and national security than they were about power, reelection, pandering to their political base and political correctness like the ones we are saddled with today!

The following was emailed to TPC by one of its readers:

I visualize General George Patton addressing everyone today. It would go something like this ...



ATTENTION!



To ALL those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic citizens, it's time for a little refresher course on exactly why we Americans occasionally have to fight wars to keep this nation great.



See if you can tear yourself away from your "reality" TV and Starbucks for a minute, pull your head out of your ass -- and LISTEN UP!!



Abu Ghraib is not "torture" or an "atrocity."
Got that ?



THIS IS an atrocity!





So Was This!!!



WHICH PART DON'T YOU GET?



Islamic Extremists are peaceful people?

My Ass!

Millions of these warped misled sons-of-bitches are plotting, as we speak, to destroy our country and our way of life any way they can.

Some of them are here among us now.

They don't want to convert you and don't want to rule you. They believe you are a vile infestation of Allah's paradise. They don't give a shit how "progressive" you are, how peace-loving you are, or how much you sympathize with their cause.

They want your ass dead, and they think it is God's will for them to do it.

Some Americans think if we give them a hug or listen to them, then they'll like us -- if you agree --
Then you are a pathetic dumb ass!

If they manage to get their hands on a nuke, chemical agents, or even some anthrax -- you will wish to God we had hunted them down and killed THEM while we had the chance.

How many more Americans must be beheaded?

You've fallen asleep AGAIN - get your head out of your ass!

You may never get another chance!

Watcher's Council Nominations: 'FP Eunuch in the WH' Edition!


Watcher's Council Nominations, 'Barack Obama: foreign policy eunuch in the White House' Edition!

I dedicate this weeks nominations of the Watcher's Council, the worlds #1 rated conservative blogging group, to the damage that has been done by this President to the national security and international prestige of the United States of America.

Nowhere has this been made more clear than by the current administration fiasco with potentially devastating ramifications taking place in Syria!

To emphasize my point please take a look at the nominated article below from The Political Commentator, 'Barack Obama: Foreign policy eunuch'!


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 the end, however, we are all winners for having had the opportunity to read the analysis of the critical issues of the day.

In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!

So without further ado the Watcher's Council nominations for the week of August 26, 2013 are...?

Instant Replay: John Bolton for President


I had written this in November 2010 and after watching the Obama administration stumble and bumble on the foreign policy and national security fronts my opinion has not changed!

It has only gotten stronger!

John Bolton for President Redux!

'Former US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, for President? I doubt it but most definitely for national security czar.

He is not warm and fuzzy and would no doubt lack any mainstream appeal in the Republican Party, but when it comes to a rationale understanding of what is going on in foreign policy matters I have always been extremely impressed with John Bolton.

He is direct, analytical, rationale and decisive in his statements over the moves that should or should not be made concerning our enemies. Would he have any chance of winning the nomination? No, but I will tell you this much; he would definitely have some national security role in any new administration that I was putting together...' (Source)

Is a U.S. race war on the horizon?


Or has a race war already begun?

Barack Obama, Al Sharpton and the Reverend Jesse Jackson have been consistent and vociferous participants in the discussion of race in the United States!

Unfortunately, however, to date this participation has proven to be destructive, not constructive, with an endgame that is still somewhat unclear but getting clearer all of the time.

So what exactly is the endgame for these men?

The list below of black-on-white violence since the death of Trayvon Martin may provide some clarity as there has been little actual, and certainly no forceful, public mention by these three amigos of race baiting about any of these crimes.

Why is that?

Why is the only time this President or Sharpton speaks to a specific case it has to do with racial incidents that they cherry pick having the potential to incite and divide rather than heal and bring together?

Why is that?

This seemingly one-sided use of the bully pulpit to create a racial divide did not start for these men with the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case.

I first became aware of the existence of Al Sharpton when Tawana Brawley burst onto the scene in 1987 making what would later be proven to be false accusations of rape against 6 white men that included a police officer.

'...Brawley, then a 15-year-old girl living in Wappingers Falls, N.Y., accused Pagano and five other white men of kidnapping her and raping her over a four-day period in some woods.

Brawley is black. Enter one Al Sharpton, then an obscure minister, ranting, raving and race baiting.

Sharpton, along with two lawyers -- Alton Maddox and C. Vernon Mason -- acted as Brawley's supporters and "advisers."

They bought -- hook, line and sinker -- her tale of being abducted by two of the men and then driven to some woods, where the abductors and four other men raped her.

Sharpton and Brawley's other two "advisers" refused to have her cooperate with state officials. Sharpton called then-New York Gov. Mario Cuomo a racist, and insisted that having Brawley talk to the state attorney general would be akin to having a concentration camp inmate talk with Adolf Hitler....'

For President Barack Obama the use of his position of power to insert himself into specific cases began early on.

In 2009 there was an arrest made in Cambridge, Ma. by a white officer of a black Harvard professor that, thanks in no small part to Obama, became a racially charged situation.

'The Presidency Is Not A Bully Pulpit To Protect Friends (at least until your final days in office), And Certainly Not The Place To Create Racial Tension 

Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates is Arrested by Police Sgt. Jim Crowley in Cambridge, Ma.

Regardless of the facts of the case, this is not the venue for the Commander in Chief who appoints the Attorney General (the highest law enforcement official in the land) to get involved and inject his opinion as to the facts that have yet to play themselves out. Of notice is that the arrested is a FOO (Friend of Obama).

The need for a hands off policy is particularly true in a racially charged case where the President comes down on the side of the accused, and invokes the history of racial injustice in the country. All this at a prime time news conference that was meant to plug the holes in the sinking health care reform ship....' (Source)

So is fomenting a race war in the United States the ultimate goal for these men?

That remains to be seen of course and we can only hope that the answer is no but if their arbitrary vocality and silence concerning specific crimes can be used as a guide, it very well might be!

Here are examples of black-on-white incidents since the Trayvon Martin shooting from the blog, Fire Andrea Mitchell:

Society in free-fall? Miley Cyrus 2013 MTV VMA Awards video!


Last night at the MTV VMA Award show did the fate of society take another huge step backwards with this performance by Miley Cyrus during primetime?

Is this video an example for what now what passes as family entertainment?

What lessons and message does this performance by Miley Cyrus send to impressionable teenagers and children?

Is there anything redeeming about this performance?

Apparently, nothing good, no!

Letter to family with severely autistic child: Move or euthanize him (Letter and Video)!



This unbelievably hateful letter was written to a family whose child suffers severe autism!



This story about hate and incredible intolerance occurred about a week ago and while the writer is a despicable human being who will hopefully be found and prosecuted the outpouring of community support for the family the shows that in at least some instances good will overcome evil.

Today is GoTopless Day 2013!

Breaking News: Post GoTopless Day follow-up at Theo Spark here.


Of all the useless movements that are out there GoTopless, fighting for a woman's right to bare her breasts in public, may actually have some legs!

The premise behind GoTopless Day is that women have the same 'constitutional' right as men to be bare-chested in public.

And if we compare GoTopless to some of the other irrelevant and useless causes out there like 'Save the Twinkie', this one may actually have some significant potential (see pictures above and below).


From a grow the economy angle GoTopless Day these rallies could provide a great opportunity for breast augmentation surgeons to set up tables and prospect for new clients or for adult video producers to seek out potential new on-screen talent.

That's an idea it seems that the Obama administration should definitely be able to get behind as none of its other business and economic growth initiatives implemented to date have seemed to work.

In any event if you are going to one of the rallies taking place around the country and around the world, have a nice day.

12 Obama Cartoons!


Say what you will about Barack Obama and the rest of his crew in Washington, but with them in office there is no shortage of ammunition for political cartoons!

The problem, however, is that whether on the foreign policy front, jobs and the economy, immigration, national security and so much more is that the source of the humor comes from non-stop failure at the expense of the American.
