Farook You Obama! – Congrats To You @RealDonaldTrump!

Breaking: Officials say San Bernardino shooter pledged allegiance to ISIS during attack. That’s no surprise to anyone. The Muslim killers wiped clean their digital history, “deleting email accounts, disposing of hard drives and smashing their cellphones” the day before they went on their Muslim holiday of death. The Muslim killers attached GOPro video cameras to memorialize their death spree. Their home was filled with pipe bombs.

Barack Obama ignores the Muslim aspect of the death machine. Barack Obama tried to turn the Muslim killing spree into a gun control issue. At this point it cannot be denied that all of Barack Obama’s “stupidity” works in only one direction. Like a cashier who’s every “mistake” shortchanges the customer Barack Obama’s policies always benefit Muslim terrorists and associated animals.

Barack Obama is not alone in his Muslim terrorist coddling and support:

San Bernardino Shootings Destroy Leftist Narrative

Here’s how the left desperately attempted to spin narrative after narrative – and will continue to spin in the coming days, ignoring the very real threat of radical Islam.

It Must Be Pro-Lifers! In the aftermath of the left’s gleeful attempts to tie clinically insane person Robert Dear to the entire pro-life movement, they initially thought they’d hit the narrative gold mine again: a Planned Parenthood was located near the shooting location! How near? Well, not that near. At least a mile away, it turns out. But that didn’t stop Sam Stein of Huffington Post from tweeting:

Planned Parenthood is about 1.3 miles from site of shooting. CNN, however, is reporting that the shooting didn’t take place there [snip]

It Must Be Right-Wingers of Unspecified Political Priority! If it couldn’t be pinned on the pro-life movement, it had to be some other right-wingers, at least according to moral cow pie Markos Moulitsas of Vox.com, who tweeted this:

Yo GOP, kinda hard to talk about “keeping people safe” when your peeps are shooting up America. [snip]

Geraldo Rivera of Fox News had the day’s most facepalming moment on Twitter:

The key now is for us to be as outraged by San Bernadino massacre as we would be if Muslim extremists were doing the killing. This is terror [snip]

Oopsies. We Need More Gun Control! As the shootings unfolded, Democrats universally came out of the woodwork to chant to their pagan god, government: The Great God of Government had to stop such nefarious activities by activating the gun control agenda. Barack Obama said to CBS’s Norah O’Donnell, “We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.” Hillary Clinton tweeted:

I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence now. [snip]

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tweeted:

Mass shootings are becoming an almost-everyday occurrence in this country. This sickening and senseless gun violence must stop. [snip]

And the inimitable Geraldo Rivera again:

Mass shooting in San Bernadino California at a Center for the Developmentally Disabled WTF! The 2d Amendment is Stupid!!! Don’t rationalize.

It’s galling that Hillary Clinton has attached herself to this Barack Obama Muslim protection, gun control agenda. It won’t help her. Barack Obama is a suicide belt that will blow Hillary Clinton up.

Donald Trump will not wear a Barack Obama suicide belt to blow himself up. To the contrary Donald Trump is saying what needs to be said. That’s why the GOP establishment advises candidates in 2016 to be fake Trumps:

Donald Trump has become such a force in the Republican Party that the official overseeing next year’s Senate races has proposed a delicate strategy for GOP candidates: Tap into Trumpism without mimicking Trump.

In a seven-page confidential memo that imagines Trump as the party’s presidential nominee, the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee urges candidates to adopt many of Trump’s tactics, issues and approaches — right down to adjusting the way they dress and how they use Twitter.

In the memo on “the Trump phenomenon,” NRSC Executive Director Ward Baker said Republicans should embrace Trump’s tough talk about China and “grab onto the best elements of [his] anti-Washington populist agenda.” Above all, they should appeal to voters as genuine and beyond the influence of special interests.

“Trump has risen because voters see him as authentic, independent, direct, firm, — and believe he can’t be bought,” Baker writes. “These are the same character traits our candidates should be advancing in 2016. That’s Trump lesson #1.”

In the Age of Fake, as we long ago declared this Obama period to be, the GOP establishment wants to fakeDonaldTrump even as they attack @RealDonaldTrump.

Unlike Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump will not wrap an Obama suicide belt around his waist. Donald Trump will not be an Obama third term. Quite the contrary. Donald Trump calls Muslim terrorists “Muslim terrorists”. That’s why Donald Trump is on the road to victory:

Trump County, USA

America’s most reliable bellwether county has fallen for the wild man from New York. [snip]

At the intersections of U.S. Highways 40 and 41, and off Interstate 70, you find yourself in Vigo County, with its 108,000 residents and its ho-hum county seat, Terre Haute, situated along the Wabash River. Terre Haute is the land of Clabber Girl Baking Powder—and its citizens call it the “Crossroads of America.” [snip]

And, in nearly every presidential election since 1888, voters here in this blue-collar county have selected the winning candidate, missing only twice: Once, in 1908, when they opted for Williams Jennings Bryan instead of William Howard Taft, and again in 1952, when they chose Adlai Stevenson rather than Dwight D. Eisenhower. [snip]

In America’s most prophetic county seat, Trump enjoys a diverse coalition of support, from the 17-year-old punk high school student on the eve of his first election to the 81-year-old Kennedy voter to the kind of folks who will reshuffle their Thursday night plans to attend a county GOP “Politics and Pies” event. Coastal pundits might lament Trump’s appeal to the “low information voter”—but I can tell you one thing: Terre Haute citizens are anything but poorly informed.

And if Trump can make it here—in this hollowed-out county of swing voters, union halls, three universities and a knot of CSX railroad lines, where voters seem to have a knack for predicting unpredictable elections—he can make it anywhere.

Donald Trump will not wear an “Obama third term” suicide belt around his waist – that’s why Donald J. Trump is a winner:

CNN/ORC Poll: Trump alone at the top again

(CNN)Donald Trump is once again alone at the top of the Republican field, according to the latest CNN/ORC Poll, with 36% of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents behind him, while his nearest competitor trails by 20 points.

Three candidates cluster behind Trump in the mid-teens, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 16%, former neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 14% and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 12%. All other candidates have the support of less than 5% of GOP voters in the race for the Republican Party’s nomination for president.

Carson (down 8 points since October), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (down 5 points to 3%) and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (down 4 points to 1%) have lost the most ground since the last CNN/ORC poll, conducted in mid-October.

Trump will not wrap an Obama third term suicide belt around his waist. That’s why Trump wins.

Thank you Trump! Farook you Obama!

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday warned that the Justice Department could take aggressive action against people whose anti-Muslim rhetoric “edges towards violence” and told the Muslim community that “we stand with you in this.”

    Speaking at Muslim Advocate’s 10th anniversary dinner, Lynch said since the terrorist attacks in Paris last month, she is increasingly concerned with the “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric … that fear is my greatest fear.”

    Heard some of what FBI Comey had to say.
    Think it was someone else who related the organization’s recommendation for local citizens to form alliances with local cops to firm up our intelligence.

    And I’m not yet prepared to conclude this comment gracefully.

  4. Lynch was better behaved in the presser with the FBI Comey. He didn’t mince words, so that is progress. Apparently she was there as a check on him.

    Obama, the president who lost his voice

    The presidency has changed Barack Obama. His hair has gone gray, which is to be expected, and he looks older, which is also to be expected, but his eloquence has been replaced by petulance and he has lost the power to persuade, which is something of a surprise. You can speculate that if the Obama of today and not Winston Churchill had led Britain in World War II, the Old Vic theater would now be doing “Hamlet” in German.

    The president has lost his voice, that is certain. The numbers say so. Obama has the approval of only 44 percent of the American people. During his time in office, Congress and much of the nation have gone Republican — statehouse after statehouse, governor after governor (soon to be 32) — an astounding feat when you consider that the GOP has become the Know-Nothing Party in all its meanings.

    It’s not that Obama has lost his gift of eloquence. His problem is that he often has nothing to say. When he does, as after the mass murder in June at a Charleston, S.C., church, he can be moving and eloquent. It is on foreign policy particularly where he goes empty and cold. His policy, after all, is to avoid yet another Middle East quagmire. It entails the ringing call to do as little as possible.

    Obama’s self-inflicted predicament was apparent in the statement he issued following the Paris terrorist attacks. Unlike many other mass killings, this one was broadcast in real time — unfolding on TV as it happened. It left the United States both shaken and horrified. Yet Obama spoke coldly, by rote — saying all the right things in the manner of a minister presiding at the funeral of a perfect stranger.

    The president is capable of better, and indeed, after some criticism, he eventually did better. But he is a cautious man who fears his rhetoric running away from him. This happened once before, when he issued his “red line” warning to Syria — and then, upon consideration, said never mind. The result has been a foreign policy debacle in which the measure of Obama has been taken. He’s been bullied off the playground.

    Obama’s dilemma is not just that he cannot find the words to articulate his policy. He cannot stick to his policy either. His initial reluctance to act in Libya faded when Moammar Gaddafi threatened to massacre his opposition and the French took the lead. His determination to stay out of Iraq collided with the threatened genocide of the Yazidis. Iraq fell apart, the Islamic State seemed to come out of nowhere. Americans were beheaded. Women were enslaved. No boots on the ground became some boots on the ground — and then some more and then some of them helped the Kurds and mixed it up with the Islamic State. Reality rebuts policy, which unravels by degree.

    George W. Bush’s Iraq war was a lesson to us all. But from the start of the Syrian crisis, no one sane was proposing doing it all over again. Instead, the proposal was to intervene early and attempt to avoid the bloodbath and humanitarian calamity that have resulted. The idea was to do more than simply tell Bashar al-Assad to return to practicing ophthalmology in London and for the United States and its allies to take some action — such as grounding Assad’s helicopters. And when it came to the Islamic State, the proposal was to do more than make some initially inadequate bombing runs, but put spotters on the ground and train anti-Assad fighters who had a stake in the fighting. As it was, the United States managed to assemble an army of about half a dozen.

    Obama is confined by the prospect of another Iraq. He defends his policy of minimalism with an off-putting petulance: “If folks want to pop off and have opinions . . . .” He talked of seeing at Walter Reed hospital “a 25-year-old kid who’s paralyzed or has lost his limbs. . . . And so I can’t afford to play some of the political games that others may.” Yes, some of the Republican presidential candidates are playing games, but Obama’s critics in think tanks and elsewhere are dead – serious. Besides, life presents mean choices. Limbs were lost in Paris, too.

    To a large degree, Obama became president on the strength of his eloquence. To a large degree, that is what has deserted him. He is out of words because he is out of ideas. Consequently, he ought to listen to others. They’re not the ones who are popping off. He is.

  11. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/12/jeb-bush-donors-polls-216436

    Jeb Bush didn’t fix it. His attempted attacks on rivals have fallen flat. His $30 million in TV ads have failed to move his numbers. And now, with the Iowa caucuses less than two months away, he’s polling at a miserable 3 percent nationally.

    But there’s one significant success that is keeping his campaign alive: Jeb Bush has convinced major GOP donors and supporters that the polls are wrong.

    “I am like the Israelites following Moses, and I am not the only one,” said Mike Fernandez, the top donor to Bush’s super PAC, after a new CNN poll showed Bush an astounding 33 points behind the poll leader. “Unfortunately, it might not be that many of us.”

    While rival campaigns boast that some Bush backers are making side bets on other candidates, hardly any Bush donors have publicly abandoned him — largely out of unwavering loyalty to an incomparable Republican dynasty and to a candidate many put on a pedestal in spite of his political shortcomings.

    “Given the poll numbers currently, you would think there would be these massive defections from a campaign like this,” said Slater Bayliss, a Florida-based GOP operative and longtime Bush ally. “And the reason there haven’t been is Jeb Bush; because people believe he’s in it for the long haul and believe he’s a serious candidate — even in a cycle where serious doesn’t seem to be selling. They like him because he’s serious. Eventually, they think serious will sell.”

    Outside the steady-under-fire nature of Bush’s top-level donors, he has kept his campaign together because of the true-believer nature of campaign manager Danny Diaz and longtime adviser Sally Bradshaw. Both are expert in making regular, data-filled pitches of proprietary campaign research that put worried donors at relative ease.

    The two, along with longtime Bush aide and South Carolina director Brett Doster, will make yet another presentation to top donors on Saturday in Miami. Their bottom-line message is unchanged: National polls aren’t predictive of primary success and the campaign’s organizational efforts will bear fruit. More privately, Bush’s team says there’s still time to engineer an unlikely comeback.

    Many of the donors gathering in Miami, however loyal, are planning to ask tough questions. As 2015 draws to a close, a growing number of Bush’s most loyal staffers and supporters can’t help but acknowledge the cold reality that the candidate whom some expected to “shock and awe” his rivals into oblivion is in danger of becoming an afterthought before voting even begins. [snip]

    “Jeb just isn’t very talented at this. And the problem is that Jeb has been coddled by a group of people who worship Jeb,” said one high-level Republican strategist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “They ran a campaign based on what they wanted the party to be, instead of what the party was.” [snip]

    We’ll know by Thanksgiving whether we’ve got a candidate or a turkey,” one longtime Bush bundler from Washington said back in October.

    Bush then launched his “Jeb Can Fix It” tour. But his poll numbers sank further.

    A turkey, not a candidate.

  12. Farook was an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County, earning $53,437 last year, according to the website Transparent California.

    http://www.sbsun.com/general-news/20151203/what-we-know-about-san-bernardino-mass-shooting-killers-syed-farook-and-tashfeen-malik

    I work as an Engineering Specialist for a county health department. One of my coworkers complained about a Muslim Environmental Specialist she worked with who used to talk about what a wonderful thing the 911 attack was. They did not do anything and she had to suck it up and work with him. Environmental Specialists generally have some kind of science backgrounds but are not usually engineers.

    We actually have a lot of legal immigrants and minorities. I have a preference for diversity so that works for me. But these people do not have a clue what to do about terrorists. We are not allowed to have any kind of weapons. Because we have health information, there are security measures limiting access. I would guess he chose his work place because he had security access to an unsuspecting population.

    Our director sent out a feeley message about this being a mental health problem.

    I agree with your director but for a different reason. I suspect that anyone who belongs to a religion where members are encouraged to kill those who do not believe, those who want to blow up people along with themselves so they can go to Heaven and “enjoy” their 70 something virgins, those who abuse/stone women, sexually abuse young boys and girls, support ISIS and are just plain old terrorist truly do have mental health problems.

    CAIR, other Muslims in our country who are supposedly the “good, peaceful” Muslims, our presidents among others are spinning like tops to say this shooting was just work place violence, mental health issues.

  16. The AG is worried about Muslims. A group of Dim Senators plan to visit a mosque to pray -a gesture of solidarity with them apparently.

    If they want to do something for American citizens and continue to suck up to terrorists in the process, they and the head Dim can volunteer to be targets when Isis makes good on its promise to strike in DC. Maybe wear one of those lapel ribbons (like the pink ones that support breast cancer research). The Isis support label should be florescent orange.

  20. Barack “Bagdad Bob” Obama. This article from The Federalist was on Real Clear Politics. Admin’s article above from Politico. It’s a little surprising to see some of the news outlets allowing even a tiny bit of reality aboard their Bull Shit Cruise Ship on its 7 year long voyage down the river “Denile”

    ___________

    In other words, the 44th American president is now our very own Baghdad Bob. He is a man clinging so desperately to his narrative–terrorists are on the run because I ended the war in Iraq and killed bin Laden–that no amount of facts or evidence could possibly convince him his narrative might be wrong, even as that narrative is unraveling in real-time before his very eyes:

    In March of 2003, Saddam’s Minister of Information was everybody’s favorite inadvertent comedian. Sporting a kicky black beret and delightfully bombastic lexicon, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf appeared on TV daily to predict American failure and deny the Baghdad invasion–sometimes even as U.S. tanks appeared behind him. “He’s great,” President George W. Bush said of Sahaf, admitting that he occasionally interrupted meetings to watch Sahaf’s briefings. “Someone accused us of hiring him and putting him there. He was a classic.”

    Sahaf became the subject of T-shirts, mugs, adoring websites, a pop song, and an action figure. Besides adding levity to news cycles otherwise filled with fuzzy green explosions, Sahaf represented everything that made Iraq’s invasion seem not quite like a real war. Wars are serious, and this guy was adorable. Even if you opposed the Iraq invasion, you had to admit it’s hard to respect a government whose official mouthpiece told a reporter, “Shock and awe? It seems that we are the awe on them. They are suffering from the shock and awe, okay?”

    We all laughed at Baghdad Bob at the time, because what kind of delusional apparatchik would declare that there are no America tanks in Baghdad when American tanks can be seen in the background rolling through Baghdad? Baghdad Bob was funny, because Baghdad Bob was not in charge of protecting us. He was in charge of protecting Saddam Hussein.

    But when your own president engages in the same absurd behavior–declaring that ISIS is contained while the group was planning a devastating attack in Paris that it would launch the very next day, or declaring that America is safe from the terrorist threat of ISIS while a terrorist who had pledged allegiance to ISIS was on the run from police after assisting in the execution of at least 14 completely innocent people at an office party in California–it’s not even remotely amusing. It’s terrifying.

    And it’s not just Obama. This disease of delusion has spread to members of his cabinet as well.

  21. It’s Friday night and I can’t think of an appropriate song to post.

    I couldn’t find a song about being pist off for 9 years…and nothing is getting better.

  22. The Spymasters on Showtime, where they interview past directors of the CIA, made an interesting comment about Obama’s preference to use drone strikes to kill terrorists rather than capture and interrogate them. One of the interviewees who disagrees with this policy made the point that it is impossible to know what terrorists are planning to do if you kill them. Obama probably didn’t want the responsibility of having to decide whether or not to use enhanced interrogation techniques on captured terrorists, hence his preference for drone strikes, which he thinks keeps his hands cleaner. The other dude of the coin is that perhaps capturing and interrogating them instead might have lead to intelligence that would have prevented the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.

  23. While I am not on the Trump bandwagon (I fear his hot-head w/ his finger on the nuke button), I do have to say I don’t summarily dismiss him when listening to these two Americans…no other “label” for them than Americans.

  26. Drone strikes fuel the hatred that led to paris attacks, ex-drone pilots say _ motherboard
    by poiskspider on Dec 5th, 2015
    Snip Now four former US drone operators who took part in remote assassination missions in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere are pushing back, describing in intimate detail the inner workings and culture of the US drone program, which they say is fueling the resentment that drives the kind of violence recently seen in Paris.
    “We came to the realization that the innocent civilians we were killing only fueled the feelings of hatred that ignited terrorism and groups like ISIS, while also serving as a fundamental recruitment tool similar to Guantanamo Bay,” the former operators wrote in an open letter to President Obama, CIA director John Brennan, and Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter. “This administration and its predecessors have built a drone program that is one of the most devastating driving forces for terrorism and destabilization around the world.”
    Thursday morning at a cramped press conference in the heart of New York City’s financial district, the group spoke of a “dehumanizing” culture within the program and their personal struggles before and after leaving their droning days behind.
    “It became really apparent as an instructor under the Obama administration that the mentality had shifted away from intel-building.” SNIP

    There is another possibility, one I believe. Obama was/is trailering the outcome, he picks off a rival here, another one there, and pretty soon the nasty person he favors is in charge. He tried that in Egypt so we know how he operates.

  29. There are so many strange things about the Farook and what’s her ass show. None of their bombs worked. Not a one. They spent a lot of money which obviously someone else gave them. They moved to another place with a garage for bomb making. People came in to help them because they were both dummies. What’s her ass supposedly went to pharmacy school but couldn’t build a bomb. She wore a veil all the time but suited up in ninja gear to shoot people and wore her underwear in the SUV to toss dud bombs. Farook was the beta’s beta and had to go to nut-ville to find a woman and his mother lived with him. The FBI-CIA let the doofus media in to destroy evidence. The family has a learning disabled attorney appointed by the White House/CAIR who sounded like he had been eating magic mushrooms. The US Attorney General is more concerned with Muslim children (is Obama having a flashback?) being bullied than murdered California civil servants and sat by the FBI director giving a statement like a Soviet commissar.

    What I am getting at is was this a counter-intel op investigation with Pakistan nutters gone off by a couple of dopes who were feeling squeezed or about to be exposed and arrested. It seems so hurried, a stupid target, and desperate instead of a big statement hit like Paris. Their little shitty bombs did not work. They were caught fast! Evidence of who was helping them destroyed or compromised at their dirty dumpy new digs. The White House acting like they got caught or something and desperately trying to change the subject. All of the press conferences of law enforcement have DOJ suits scowling in the background culminating with Att Gen Lynch minding FBI director Comey. Is this some kind of coup? ? Were these infiltrated dumbasses in California and the infiltrator CIA gotten get out clean? Obama naturally gets weaker as his time runs out. Is this just hurrying up the natural course of things? And their narrative of workplace violence and the poor bullied Muslim goober fell flatter than a pancake in nothing flat. Killing your own civil servants is a no go. Minding the FBI will get you leaks faster than anything.

  30. As a cynic I think the professional government is waking up to the fact that “You’re Fired!” might be elected. I have no doubt that he would clean out the deadwood, incompetents, and traitors without a second thought. Any pushback by FBI, CIA, etc would be for a dual purpose. Obama has gone too far and they need to save their own asses from a President “Lucky Donald” Trump. They see the purges coming.

    It does not look like BO will be able to maintain his false economy through the end of his term and we will have deflation upon us during the presidential run. Trump in in tune with the trends.

    I worked for the feds right out of college where there were many dedicated and highly skilled civil servants who served the public good. Then I worked for the state of Texas as an investigator and regulator before entering the private sector. Obama has treated public employees as his flunkies, as if they serve him instead of the public, and generally with contempt placing them in a position opposed to the public they are supposed to serve. He is a nightmare to dedicated public servants at every level and every branch of government. He has done more to destroy the public trust in their servants than any one in my lifetime.

    Lu, have you noticed the emails her camp sends out are so bland, so lacking of any connection…no heart at all…very rote and lacking any of Hillary’s once engaging personality…like they didn’t even give them any thought…

    very disappointing…

  37. It to really is appalling that our AG would essentially try to further silence Americans that are all ready worried about what they see…and fear…is going on in our country

    Why isn’t she encouraging Americans to come forward if they see anything that scares them? instead she makes americans fearful of coming forward at the risk of being prosecuted for their free speech…

    Why isn’t she concerned about all Americans that are being bullied…

    Can Christians also call her if they feel bullied…can right wingers call her if they feel bullied?

    how come the Southern Law Poverty Center can go after Christians, right wingers but protect muslims…

    why is there no sense of balance and fairness…

    I read that O has not released his immigration info on who he has let into the USA…
    I have also seen large numbers of Syrians and Muslims have been allowed in during his admin…

    it is beginning to seem like O and his admin is purposely trying to change the demographics of our country…it is all beginning to look intentional

    there is a defintely feeling growing that Americans come last…and we better shut up and like it…or now, we may even be prosecuted by O’s AG…

  38. I read that O has not released his immigration info on who he has let into the USA…
    I have also seen large numbers of Syrians and Muslims have been allowed in during his admin…
    _______

    I heard that Cruz and Sessions had filed suit to get the info from WH, and that a number of members of congress had already requested this info with no results.

    With a full year left in office, not facing reelection, giving not one damn about the wellbeing of American citizens, with members of senate and house too indifferent and/or impotent to hold him to account, and with MSM spinning his sh*t into sugar every hour of every day the man could still do a lot of damage- a helluva lot.

  39. pm317…

    thank you for that article…

    it just seems like no one is looking out for the American people…the whole wide and different variety of us…and instead deference is given to ‘political correctness’ and not to offend possible killers instead…

    santuary cities have to be one of the most outrageous things this admin has allowed to evolve and flourish during these dangerous times

    how can we protect illegal activity that American citizens do not even have protection from …and then Americans become the victims of…

    from what I hear and read…there are many more Americans who have been victimized by illegal immigrants but it is being hushed up…and in fact, there appear to be many more illegal immigrants that are also being murdered, raped and left for dead at our borders but no one wants to acknowledge that either…

    we need a leader who will give structure and common sense to all of this…not this free for all we have under O…or sadly what Hillary is also proposing…

    our priorities are all wrong…I agree with Voting Hillary when he/she says:

    I am really angry, but the weird part is I am as angry at our media and the Dems w/ the BS they tried to shove down the American people’s throats this week as I am at ISIS because they all are trying to destroy this country

    ************************************

    this is why DT is resonating…he is unafraid to talk about what is actually on the average person’s mind…the average mom and dad that worries about the future and their children…

    he better be careful O’s AG doesn’t go after his free speech…

  40. S, agree.. Can’t wait for this goon to get out of our lives. It used to be that immigration from other countries across the Atlantic was mostly skill-based. It is not that anymore. Hopefully the next admin will put a lid of on importing from the ‘problem’ countries. Preying on disgruntled and maladjusted first generation Americans is such an obvious model for the barbarians. Religion plays a big part in assimilation. In immigrant Indian communities there is a pejorative acronym used to make fun of first generation Indians — ABCs and I think it stands for all but confused or some such thing. A big part of Indian assimilation problem here is their religion (non-Christians) but still the drive to succeed and lead a positive life is dominant so they don’t turn into barbarians. And also their parents would be some of the richest people here (given that they came here looking for intellectual pursuits rather than bare necessities). Poverty, religion, and lack of education are a deadly combination.

  41. I have come across two examples, one of them the night before last, where I was invited to a small dinner with an old friend of mine, and the hostess decided to be naughty and invite a friend of hers, a not so gay divorcee to attend to start a fight over politics. My friend is a RINO who hated Bush, voted for Obama, against my advice, and then voted for Gary Johnson in 2012 because he got wise about Obama. Naturally he hates Trump and Cruz, and I believe the reason is because he does not want someone in power who will shake up the existing order. The not so gay divorcee however had a different take. Believe it or not she was still entranced with Obama and everything about him. I laid out the argument advanced by Hedges–an honest man of the left, warning his colleagues that Obama is, was, and will always be another of a long line of shills for corporations, and I pointed out the serial failures of his administration, and the obvious rush to world government, and the loss of rights this entails. Not a word of this registered. The only response was a smarmy defense of Obama, it made my skin crawl. About how glorious it was to have a black president, regardless of what he did, and only a racist could find fault in what he is doing. My friend bristled at that suggestion. I just shook my head and told her no sale. This is not a case of first impression. Once before I encountered another not so gave divorcee, who got a couple drinks in her and also tried to tell me how precious Obama is. This is like what Talleyrand said of the Bourbon dynasty: forgotten nothing–AND LEARNED NOTHING. I asked my friend, if what we saw last night, and what I saw before is any indication, then there is some fatal attraction at work here, and I just wonder what it is about. Clearly, its magic thinking but what is the source? My answer tended to a Freudian one, and he dismissed it entirely stating that is impossible, he is an ugly man. I said, okay, you tell me what is it? He said it is rooting for the underdog. I said, Harvard Law, Senator, mansion, multi millionaire, I don’t see much of an underdog here. The Cuban Banker would say they want a sugar daddy, but these women did rather well in their divorce settlements so that does not wash. In the absence of a clear answer, this will remain a mystery, but clearly a black mark against the principle of self government which I remain committed to. This much however is clear: People like this, who love Obama, and fear Trump do not want to rock the boat. They ignore the economic realities of globalization. And they cannot understand that we are entering the era of demagogues, where everyone engages in magic thinking because they do not want to face reality.

  42. wbboei,

    The only reason to rush globalization is to put themselves in charge of it so that they end up with all the loot. I do not know anyone at this point who would defend BO. However, his former defenders have a multitude of excuses mostly to the effect that the other choices were worse and they are all the same. So BO is really just one of “them”. If you take that defense, it is really cool to have a black POTUS. But in this case, his race was used to defend some particularly harmful behaviors, so it is anything but cool.

    So how could anyone actually still support him after he pretty much destroyed the middle class? I think the thing would be that they fancy themselves amongst the “haves” and they will be part of the ruling class. Their secret fantasy keeps them superior. If they realized that they were next on the menu, they might not be so arrogant.

    ————-
    That has to be it.

    But again, their myopia.

    When the global elite take over, they will be a fatter chicken to be plucked.

    The worst of it is, the are naive, yet they fancy themselves to be sophisticates.

    And that is, perhaps, their greatest myopia.

    My myopia is thinking I can do anything about it, except to support Trump.

  44. “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric … that fear is my greatest fear.”
    ——-
    I am sure that is Lynch’s greatest fear.

    And for that she is willing to overlook the far greater threat—a dirty bomb.

    And why is that?

    Simple:

    Radical blacks have a natural affinity to radical muslims.

    And it is based on power, and race.

    That is what this game is about–for Obama, Holder and Lynch.

    Truth to tell, political dilatantes of the left cannot handle the truth.

  45. holdem – it occurred to me one day that if Obama were to take enemies for capture and questioning and holding – he’d need Guantanamo. Just killing everybody negates the need for a place to keep captives. Hence, easier to get rid of Guantanamo….

  46. I think that pastor video by the Stump for Trump gals (especially the first segment, I think that could have stood alone) may be perhaps the most effective for connecting the dots and empowering poor blacks (even the larger number of poor whites, were they to see it and if it related to their own churchgoing experiences)….

  47. VotingHillary – I totally respect your opinion. I wanted to throw mine in for consideration – I’ve always had some worry about Obama pushing the button. I don’t believe he is more than average intelligence, and I think his history and pathology indicate a strong need for revenge. And he is like a dog with a bone when he wants something – if he decided to go nuclear, especially if Jarrett were on his side, I don’t think someone could talk him down.

    Trump, on the other hand, IMO, has many ways to get revenge, and it’s usually verbal or by winning the long game. He’s very intelligent, and has shown he is very aware of actions and consequences, and I believe that thinking long term is his strong suit. He doesn’t go for the quick gratifying win, instead he will take hits until he is shown right, and therefore has a longer-term win. So I don’t think he would go nuclear in anger. And even if he did have that twitch at some time, I think he would easily be talked out of it, when reminded of the big picture through his anger. Obama, on the other hand, IMO, wouldn’t care about the big picture, he wouldn’t even hear it, because he’d be stuck in his hedonistic, revenge seeking moment. Trump takes new developments into consideration, IMO it’s clear from his business dealings and his campaign.

    (Not that you mentioned Obama, it’s just something I’ve thought about in my head between the two of them)

  48. Valerie Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran.

    ————

    Barry was raised as a kid by a Muslim man, pretty sure his daddy was Muslim too.

    Do we still wonder why things are so effed up???

    Nope.

  49. My opinion is, when Barry was being groomed for his current ‘job’, that being a Muslim to the public would be unacceptable to most American’s, so he went to ‘Christian’ radical church of Chickens come home to roost, instead.

  50. Poverty, religion, and lack of education are a deadly combination.

    pm317 = particularly when their leaders are putting a chip on their shoulder and encouraging revenge and chaos…. (blacks, not Indians)

  51. Here’s a whisper dated yesterday and it is easy to believe. But IDK how much stock to put in it.

    BREAKING: Obama/Jarrett Warn FBI Director Over Anti-Muslim Tone (UPDATED)
    Posted on December 4, 2015 by DCWhispers
    If true, this is a scenario that appears to pit the Obama White House against FBI Director James Comey over what reports suggest is an increasingly divisive conflict between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Jarrett and federal law enforcement officials regarding feared pending ISIS terror threats inside of the United States.
    (ABOVE: Barack Obama is said to be “furious” with his FBI Director, James Comey.)
    FBI Director Comey just finished a briefing to the American public. It was a briefing said to have required the full and prior approval by Valerie Jarrett of Director Comey’s public comments
    [might have missed something]
    Lynch’s role is alleged to be the Obama White House’s watchdog over FBI Director Comey’s statements and subsequent response following the most recent Islamic terrorist attack. The impetus for this scenario is said to be two-fold:

    **Mr. Obama and Ms. Jarrett are increasingly concerned over anti-Muslim rhetoric not only among the general population and politicians, but among federal, state, and local law enforcement officials who are increasingly concerned further threats to public safety might very well be imminent. They want this tone “corrected” immediately.

    **Barack Obama is said to have asked during an earlier meeting regarding the San Bernardino terrorist attack how best they, “control the message on this.” Jarrett operatives have apparently already reached out to and continue to then remind supportive media figures to describe San Bernardino as a “shooting” and not connect it to Islamic terror.

    It seems the administration’s motivation will continue to demand the terror attack be used as yet another tool for further calls for federal gun control laws despite ever-increasing evidence the attack in San Bernardino was exclusively the result of Muslim terrorism. FBI Director James Comey appears increasingly unwilling to play along with the Obama White House’s insistence the actual terror threat be downplayed while the push for gun control be expanded.

    —————-

    UPDATE: Rumors now circulating that Barack Obama recently stood over Director Comey, who was seated at the time, and inquired whose side the FBI Director was on. Apparently the two men have been at odds for months, including Comey’s repeated repudiation of the Black Lives Matter movement and its highly negative impact upon law enforcement morale.

    UPDATE #2: Watch the video below and see how tense FBI Director Comey appears at the outset. Then watch at the end of the video (app 6:00 mark) as the live feed is abruptly cut off when it gets to the question and answer portion. Both Lynch and Comey give their Jarrett -approved statements on the San Bernardino terror attack, and then the transmission is terminated thus ensuring no Americans can hear Mr. Comey’s non-Jarrett approved commentary.

    NOTE: The original PBS News video that was posted earlier today was then subsequently EDITED in which the abrupt “cutting off” of the Comey question and answer request was removed. Other media outlets such as C-SPAN made the very same edit likely at the request of the Obama White House.

    Here then is a still-unedited version. You can fast-forward to the six-minute mark and watch as Director Comey asks fir questions a voice from the back interjects and the video feed is abruptly terminated. The video then repeats itself and shows the edited version.

    The leaks surrounding the terrorist attack by Islamic radicals this week in San Bernardino, California are for one purpose–to back Barack Obama in a corner. Pressure has come down from the White House to try to minimize, even whitewash the Muslim angle. FBI Agents, at least some, are having none of this. They knew early on that this was an act of international terrorism and they also knew that Obama’s White House was desperate, almost panicked, to tamp down that meme.

  56. I think the country has had enough of BO’s fundamental transformation. Really, some may have thought it was going to be a good thing. It is not. In fact, it is so much not a good thing that rebellion is in the wind. If BO thinks he is going to ramrod his shit a whole ‘nother year, he is in for some bad times. The country is in for some bad time. So let us make it count.

    Yea, way past time to just say NO DEAL.

    2. Do not shop at Walmart
    3. Pray

  58. Geesh….isn’t there one leader out there who is looking out for the American worker?
    both parties are out to screw them…

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/12/05/gop-legislators-push-plan-replace-americans-import-264000-foreign-workers/

    GOP House leaders are preparing a huge appropriations bill for a vote next week — and top GOP legislators want to include a rider that could allow employers to replace at least 100,000 blue-collar Americans with up to 264,000 foreign temporary H-2B workers.

    The plan would actually cost taxpayers billions of dollars each year, because the unemployed Americans workers won’t pay taxes, but would get unemployment checks and welfare aid from the taxpayers.

    The GOP’s pink-slip plan would also cut the wages of many other American workers before the 2016 election. That’s because the foreign temps hold down the normal wages that Americans could otherwise negotiate in a free market for their labor.

    The GOP legislators, the House appropriations committee and the GOP’s leadership would not respond to repeated requests for information about the measure. A Hill aide, however, provided Breitbart with documents indicating legislators are pushing to include it in the omnibus bill. GOP leaders plan to rush that huge spending bill through the House by the end of next week.

    The complex bill is a gift to donors and businesses because it would allow them to reduce wages offered in advertised jobs, thus deterring American applicants and then justifying their requests for H-2B visa workers. It also provides a huge loophole that technically keeps the current annual cap of 66,000 H-2B workers — but excludes from the cap any H-2B workers who got an H-2B visa in the prior three years. That clever loophole would allow employers to simultaneously hire up to four years of H-2B workers, or 264,000 foreign workers.

    “This bill reads like it was written by landscaping industry… it’s a wish list of everything they could possibly want,” said Ed Tuddenham, a lawyer in New York. “The steel industry doesn’t get low-wage labor to compete with foreign steelmakers,” he scoffed.

    The bill is being pushed by the H-2B Workforce Coalition, which includes hotel owners, golf courses, landscaping companies, realtors, the National Federation of Independent Business, building contractors, roofing companies, the racetrack association and many other groups. “Failure to enact a returning worker exemption will decimate seasonal businesses across the country,” the group claimed in a May letter, which also includes a 20-page list of companies looking to hire foreign workers instead of American workers.

    The group declined to comment for this article.

    Excellent. Our elected officials have no serious attempts to deal with Obama’s lies and destruction. It’s up to people in the know like these FBI agents. Of course, they may feel the wrath of O and MSM, but they had the guts and the concern for this country to take that risk.

    It is beginning to seem that anxiety and outrage about O’s anti-American actions and attitudes- His unconstitutional directives, the racial unrest and violence he has promoted, the multiple execution of police officers sparked by his comments and those of Eric Holder, his defense of Islamic terrorists, his support amnesty for illegal aliens over the will and wellbeing of American citizens and on and on – are reaching critical mass. People are fed up. The truth is seeping into the consciousness of the American public, despite the best efforts of the progs and MSM to keep that from happening.

    Trump deserves much credit for the awakening of the public. Even tho millions throughout the country were thinking the same thing about O, the were isolated, disconnected. Because of media spin, they were unaware that so many others shared their views. Trump validated those thoughts and made people aware that many, many of their fellow Americans were of like mind.

  61. Trump deserves much credit for the awakening of the public
    ———-
    He deserves one hundred percent of the credit, because they could not control him through money and could not silence him through threats. In an era where high treason against the American People is practiced routinely by the political class, he is the whistle blower against all of them, and the only agent of reform.

    Donald Trump Forges New Blue-Collar Coalition Among Republicans

    Celebrity businessman appeals to nonreligious voters who don’t believe politicians can get U.S. back on track

    Donald Trump has built his leading position in the Republican primary race by bringing together an underappreciated segment of the GOP—blue-collar voters who aren’t especially animated by social issues—and who may be setting the stage for an unusual, three-person sprint to the nomination.

    Mr. Trump’s appeal is a form of secular populism rarely seen in Republican primary races, and one he is pressing in part with appearances in working-class communities in Iowa that include independent voters and even Democrats who may be lured into the caucuses. The celebrity businessman’s message appears to resonate among voters who believe most strongly that political leaders are unable to put the nation back on track.

    Past nominating contests have often boiled down to two-person races in which an establishment-backed front-runner beats a socially conservative candidate who appeals to working-class voters—a role Rick Santorum filled in 2012, as did Mike Huckabee in 2008 and Pat Buchanan in 1996.

    Now, Mr. Trump appears to be opening a new, third lane in the GOP, drawing on a large share of voters who don’t have a college degree and don’t identify strongly with the party’s touchstone social issues, such as opposition to abortion rights and gay marriage.

    That raises the prospect that the 2016 contest could narrow to a three-person race featuring the leading choice of social conservatives, the top pick of the party’s establishment wing of centrists and business-friendly Republicans—and Mr. Trump.

    Polling shows the unusual nature of Mr. Trump’s coalition, which has kept him at the front of the pack in national and early-primary state polls far longer than any nontraditional candidate in 2012.

    snip…it goes on

  63. That’s exactly the demographic Admin had been repeatedly advising Hillary to go after rather than the Looney Left but which she had abandoned.

    holdem – I haven’t read this yet, but it’s another one about the subject you mentioned
    —————-
    Good. Two sources are exponentially better than one.

  65. Excellent comments as always on H44. Trump is not a doctrinaire D or R as defined by the parties (and their owner/donors) and the media who pimp for them. Remember the screaming and hair pulling by Republicans that Trump wasn’t pure enough nor a real Republican? That fizzled because the public doesn’t care. He is a hybrid. He reminds me more of old Blue Dogs from the ’90’s who got run out of the Dem party by Obama-ites than anyone else. Where did the dumb party flunkies think they were going to go? Did they really think they would just sit down and shut up? Disappear? Die? Nope. They popped out as populists. Duh! And pissed off ones to boot. Why neither R nor D thought about this is amazing. These are the same voters who have been turning states red in state legislatures and sending new R’s to the House and Senate.

    Now Lucky Donald studied up and picked the seminal issue that few of the great “public intellectuals”, AKA dumb asses, tied to most of the troubles in the US. Immigration. And Obama made it all much worse. Of course the boob would do that. The public sees this but the smarties don’t. Or are paid not to do so. Immigration is tied to jobs, poverty, budgets, crime, trade and now TERRORISM. Duh! Start fixing/limiting/reversing immigration and all of these problems start fixings themselves. Populist goober (like me!) voters cans see this. They are not ideologically “pure” and do not give one hoot that Trump isn’t either. Elites hate populists. Populists hate elites especially really stupid ones.

Trump validated those thoughts and made people aware that many, many of their fellow Americans were of like mind.”

    That is the perfect definition of a “preference cascade” which happened in countries of the Soviet Bloc like Poland and Rumania and saw governments collapse. I have thought it was going on here too but in slow motion because of our legal system and pimp media. The emergency meeting at the White House yesterday was about another log on the fire from the little immigrant terrorist which they helped import. Once a preference cascade starts they are impossible to stop. They can be slowed but not stopped. It is happening in Europe too. Events outrun agit-prop and the “leaders” look like idiots. Expect Obama to emit fog and word clouds tonight with his speech. It won’t make any sense and everyone will know it.

  67. Anyone up for a “Teachable Moment” drinking game during Obama’s speech tonight? Just kidding. I don’t want alcohol poisoning before New Years Eve. I haven’t met my Obamacare deductible yet.

  68. Gabrielle Giffords and President Obama talk gun control 12/4/15

    President Barack Obama met with former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly, two prominent gun control advocates, at an unannounced meeting on Friday, the White House said.
    The meeting with the Giffords … comes as Obama is considering taking executive action to tighten restrictions on gun ownership. The issue of gun control has taken a foremost role in the national conversation as numerous mass shootings have occurred in recent years, prompting Obama to address tragedies time and again during his presidency — all while a Republican-controlled Congress continually rejects passing comprehensive gun control laws.
    But White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on Friday declined to specify what was being considered or when the administration would announce its plan.

    Obama, Giffords and Kelly, as well as senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, discussed potential actions that could be taken to keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them, according to the White House.
    The meeting came a day after the gun control advocates slammed Senate Republicans for blocking two bills, one of which would stop suspected terrorists from legally buying guns and expand background checks to gun shows and online firearms sales. The other measure would prevent convicted felons and the mentally ill from having access to weapons.
    “Once again, some United States Senators ignored the will of the American people, stood with the gun lobby, and voted to protect the loopholes that make it too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on guns,” Giffords and Kelly said in a joint statement released Thursday. “The American people deserve leaders who will protect their safety and represent their interests, not the interests of the gun lobby.”

    Trump has flummoxed the party order, which assumed all along that the bombastic real-estate tycoon’s popularity would eventually fade. He has led polls nationally and in the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire for more than three months.

    A CNN/ORC poll released Friday, 58 days from the Feb. 1 Iowa caucuses, showed Bush garnering only 3 percent support nationally. That’s 33 percentage points behind Trump, who at 36 percent polled 20 points ahead of his nearest competitor, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Bush and his allies have spent more than any other contender on TV ads: nearly $30 million.

    thank you for your brilliant analysis. yes, our “preference cascade” is in slow motion because the majority of us are law abiding American citizens. We won’t charge the gates or tear down a wall. We will wait for the general election.

    Ehhh… I think terms are pretty much set in the Constitution and impeachment is the only remedy.

  75. I think moderate and independent voters have usually changed preference for the other party when things have gone array with the current one. What is unusual in this election cycle, after the golden age of Obama and Bush, is that people are rejecting both parties in supporting Trump. Bill Clinton’s presidency was an end of an era. If this was a parliamentary system, I think Obama would have been booted out well before now by the opposition party. With the political system we have here, need for change usually takes a long to percolate down to the retail voter and then up. It also needs a leading voice (like we have in Trump now) to lead them on. In general, the western world and in particular the US, people/voters do not have knee jerk reaction to their politicians and the political infrastructure and would rather give them the benefit of the doubt and second chances and all. Goons like Obama (and Bush) have taken advantage of that and went too far and voters are seeing it. Trump has support from both Rs and Ds and the media knows it but wants to play dumb.

  76. Mormaer, what do you make of the news that the guy (seems to have a hispanic name) who bought the guns for the San Bernadino shooter (voluntarily?) checked himself into a mental institute after the attack?

  77. I should say after the news of the attack and the investigators found him there. It was in one of the Daily Mail articles.

    Mormaer, what do you make of the news that the guy (seems to have a hispanic name) who bought the guns for the San Bernadino shooter (voluntarily?) checked himself into a mental institute after the attack?

    That his lawyer or employer (gang related, chop shop?) wanted to get him away from the FBI or California law enforcement for a while until they came up with a story. I think I read his name is Filipino. He is in a lot of trouble.

  79. Mormaer, thanks.. so he had a different ‘boss’ who didn’t want him getting mixed up with the FBI for a different reason. OK that makes sense. I didn’t think he would come up with that strategy on his own if he was a straight guy just buying it for his friend.

  80. DJT on Face The Nation today. 17 minutes. I think it is exemplary but will leave it unembedded.
    Extended interview: Donald Trump, December 6
    http://www DOT youtube.com/watch?v=bCjTkmyzlLU&feature=youtu.be

  81. Mormaer, I had not heard the term “preference cascade”, but it is a very apt description.

    Lorac, I tend to agree that Obama’s childish stubbornness, his single-mindedness, and his own identity with the Muslim faith and his propensity to be influenced others who are even more pro-Islam and anti-Israel, like Jarrett make him more dangerous than any president in history with regard to “the button”.

    I also agree that Trump seems to be an intelligent person. However, his manner of speaking often suggest a deficient vocabulary and inadequate verbal skills. This makes him seem less intelligent than he probably is. I am in no way referring to his refusal to be PC. That’s one of the things I like about him. But he does need to add a few adjectives to his vocabulary, polish his verbal communication style just a bit. He can sound bright and articulate on occasion, but more often, he seems to be struggling for descriptive words and phrases.

  82. It is a TOTAL waste of time listening to Obama’s speech tonight.

    He is totally committed to his agenda, and could care less about the welfare of the American People, and anyone who will not accept that is a fool.

    We know what he will say before he says it, and it will follow the trite line of never letting a crisis go to waste to advance his agenda.

    This speech is also intended to cover up his mistakes and blame Bush.

    Looking ahead, establishment figures will insist that the candidate we select must have experience, and they will cite Obama as the example.

    The rebuttal is obvious: in 2008 he had no experience. In 2012 he had 4 years of experience. Was he any better in 2013 than he was in 2009? In fact he was worse. Therefore, the Obama example proves that experience is not as critical as it was thought to be, and the critical factor is character, and respect for our constitutional system. Trump or Cruz qualify whereas the rest of the Republican field do not. Their experience proves nothing. In employment situations, it is different.

  83. I have always tried to understand how Obama has been able to get away with as much as he has.

    The normal rule of social interaction is the powerful can pursue their agenda, subject to two constraints: i) first, they must play by the rules, and ii) second, they must not become too cocky.

    If they exceed the limits on power which inhere in their position, or if they do not exceed them, but act arrogantly, and with contempt for others, then they will be punished socially–and in this case politically.

    With the elites however that has not happened to Obama, which can only mean that the feedback mechanism has broken down. The racial angle is part of it, but the larger factor is the confidence of the political class that through him a new world order is being constructed, and they will be the dukes, the earls, and the barons of that order.

    Obama has made his supporters out to be fools, and their line of retreat is to either change the subject or engage in magic thinking. Neither ploy will suffice.

  84. Trump is promising to. Start time for speech has been announced as “just after 8 PM”. Not sure how good Donald’s tweets will be.

  85. Obama thinks his strategy against ISIS is working.

    Now he is on gun control. Surprise!

    Someone should cut that mole from his face.

  86. If Obama thinks this speech will help him he is drinking Drano.

    His ploy is to argue against sending tens of thousands of troops into the Middle East – which no one is proposing.

    Now he is defending Islam.

    Obama claims ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. Obama must have missed that the leader of ISIS is a scholar and graduate of the best Muslim theological schools.

  87. BO says we cannot let this turn into a fight between the US and the Muslims and Patriotic Muslims . We can’t push away the Muslims in hate. It is our responsibility to reject the idea of treating Muslims differently. Muslims Americans are our friends.

  88. WTF was the purpose of BO’s bloviating? Did he think that was going to impress anyone? Or was he just doing what he was told by Soros & Company?

    Pathetic.

    He’s crazy as hell. And, must think we are either deranged or stupid. The man is a taco short of a combo-plate.

    Every time he defends radical islam, he makes people a little angrier, and increases the danger for the Muslims he’s so anxious to protect. His comments and Jarrett’s have added to the outrage people were already feeling about this issue.

  91. Dare we hope – the times they are a-changing?

    Posting the titles of the latest articles featured at Real Clear Politics. Apparently even media – some in media, that is – will stretch credulity only so far. Those who continue to enable Obama’s delusions and shove them down the throats of the public will look pretty foolish by the time O leaves office.

  92. Why The Liberal Media Hate Trump (by Pat Buchanan)

    In the feudal era there were the “three estates” — the clergy, the nobility and the commons. The first and second were eradicated in Robespierre’s Revolution.

    But in the 18th and 19th century, Edmund Burke and Thomas Carlyle identified what the latter called a “stupendous Fourth Estate.”

    Wrote William Thackeray: “Of the Corporation of the Goosequill — of the Press … of the fourth estate. … There she is — the great engine — she never sleeps. She has her ambassadors in every quarter of the world — her courtiers upon every road. Her officers march along with armies, and her envoys walk into statesmen’s cabinets.”

    The fourth estate, the press, the disciples of Voltaire, had replaced the clergy it had dethroned as the new arbiters of morality and rectitude.

    Today the press decides what words are permissible and what thoughts are acceptable. The press conducts the inquisitions where heretics are blacklisted and excommunicated from the company of decent men, while others are forgiven if they recant their heresies.

    With the rise of network television and its vast audience, the fourth estate reached apogee in the 1960s and 1970s, playing lead roles in elevating JFK and breaking Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon.

    Yet before he went down, Nixon inflicted deep and enduring wounds upon the fourth estate.

    When the national press and its auxiliaries sought to break his Vietnam War policy in 1969, Nixon called on the “great silent majority” to stand by him and dispatched Vice President Spiro Agnew to launch a counter-strike on network prejudice and power.

    A huge majority rallied to Nixon and Agnew, exposing how far out of touch with America our Lords Spiritual and Lords Temporal had become.

    Nixon, the man most hated by the elites in the postwar era, save Joe McCarthy, who also detested and battled the press, then ran up a 49-state landslide against the candidate of the media and counter-culture, George McGovern. Media bitterness knew no bounds.

    And with Watergate, the press extracted its pound of flesh. By August 1974, it had reached a new apex of national prestige.

    In “The Making of the President 1972,“ Teddy White described the power the “adversary press” had acquired over America’s public life.

    “The power of the press in America is a primordial one. It sets the agenda of public discussion, and this sweeping political power is unrestrained by any law. It determines what people will talk and think about — an authority that in other nations is reserved for tyrants, priests, parties and mandarins.”

    Millions now regard the media as rabid ideologues masquerading as journalists and use press privileges and power to pursue agendas not dissimilar to those of the candidates and parties they oppose.

    Even before Nixon and Agnew, conservatives believed this.

    At the Goldwater convention at the Cow Palace in 1964 when ex-President Eisenhower mentioned “sensation-seeking columnists and commentators,” to his amazement, the hall exploded.

    Enter The Donald.

    His popularity is traceable to the fact that he rejects the moral authority of the media, breaks their commandments, and mocks their condemnations. His contempt for the norms of Political Correctness is daily on display.

    And that large slice of America that detests a media whose public approval now rivals that of Congress, relishes this defiance. The last thing these folks want Trump to do is to apologize to the press.

    And the media have played right into Trump’s hand.

    They constantly denounce him as grossly insensitive for what he has said about women, Mexicans, Muslims, McCain and a reporter with a disability. Such crimes against decency, says the press, disqualify Trump as a candidate for president.

    Yet, when they demand he apologize, Trump doubles down. And when they demand that Republicans repudiate him, the GOP base replies:

    “Who are you to tell us whom we may nominate? You are not friends. You are not going to vote for us. And the names you call Trump — bigot, racist, xenophobe, sexist — are the names you call us, nothing but cuss words that a corrupt establishment uses on those it most detests.”

    What the Trump campaign reveals is that, to populists and Republicans, the political establishment and its media arm are looked upon the way the commons and peasantry of 1789 looked upon the ancien regime and the king’s courtiers at Versailles.

    Yet, now that the fourth estate is as discredited as the clergy in 1789, the larger problem is that there is no arbiter of truth, morality and decency left whom we all respect. Like 4th-century Romans, we barely agree on what those terms mean anymore.

  93. Obamanation… what a delusional person he and his followers are.
    4th estate..yes, but sadly, not enough people agree…yet..
    A few more terrorist acts unfortunately will change that. I had a work mate who thought I was a little zealous about Muslims. .not anymore…

  94. Let kasich know what you think of bashing the frontrunner. I did. Short of Fuck you I said The Donald has my vote. Will write it in. A friend told me some states are tricky. When you are registered with either party a write-in goes to the party of registration. Not sure. No problem I go from Indy to R for primary back to Indy for general.

  96. The Narrative Can Never Be Wrong
    BY RICHARD FERNANDEZ DECEMBER 7, 2015 CHAT 39 COMMENTS

    Naval lookouts in the last century were advised not to stare directly at dim objects in the dark because the human eye’s night vision receptors were clustered away from the center of the retina. If they looked to one side they would more clearly see what was in the center of the field of view. By analogy, the best way to examine events in America might be to look off indirectly — at the elections in Venezuela perhaps — in order to see dead ahead more clearly.

    This is especially true because the political receptors of many pundits are getting jaded. Peter Wehner at Commentary, for example, is almost shellshocked by the president’s repetitiveness. Wehner is tired of listening to the same old, same old and has nearly tuned out. “If you want to witness an adamantine mind at work, you could do a whole lot worse than observe the 44th president of the United States. Barack Obama is the most rigidly ideological president of my lifetime, a man who has a nearly blind adherence to a particular ideology (progressivism). It’s a disturbing, if at times a psychologically fascinating, thing to witness.”

    Wehner knows the stock responses to every terrorist attack: nothing to do with Islam; “don’t do stupid shit”; “don’t be racist.” Or that all-purpose retort to every demand for power: “you didn’t build that.” Why talk to a man with a mind as closed as Obama’s, Wehner’s article asks.

    You talk in order to maintain the illusion a conversation is still possible. The voters in Venezuela, after 17 years of voting Chavismo into power, believe they can vote Maduro out of office. The opposition may now have 113 seats in a 167-member assembly, a two thirds majority. Maduro gone, right? Well not necessarily. As the Chavista president reminded the voters: voting out socialism is no ordinary matter. Whatever you do, you can’t stop the revolution.

    Maduro’s arguments are another way of asserting what we hear from time to time. When the “gains” of a messianic system become too great to reverse, they become too important to ever be given back. Other projects of equal weight, like the formation of the European Union, are of such importance that they adhere to the principle of “vote until you get it right.” For example, Ireland and Denmark were put through two referendums until they accepted the desired result. In the things that really matter, the moral arc of history — not uninformed public opinion — gets the last word.

    Nowhere is this more true than of Islamism. As Recep Tayyip Erdoğan so memorably put it: democracy is like a bus. “Once I get to my stop, I’m getting off.” If Maduro is riding on the Bolivarian express, Erdogan is on the Caliphate Special. You can’t stop the music. Nobody can stop the music.

    In reality we don’t have a conversation, we have a monologue.

    Having looked indirectly at peripheral objects like Venezuela, the EU or Turkey, it may now be possible to see Barack Obama’s speech on the San Bernardino terror attack more clearly. For here the adamantine mind of the president is on full display. His superficial message is the same reassuring theme as always, along FDR’s lines of “the only thing to fear is fear itself.” Terrorism is not “between America and Islam.” Just give him more power and rest easy at home.

    Muslim-Americans are our friends and our neighbors. Our co-workers. Our sports heroes. And, yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country. We have to remember that. …
    It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country. It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim-Americans should somehow be treated differently. Because when we travel down that road, we lose. That kind of divisiveness, that betrayal of our values plays into the hands of groups like ISIL.

    Yet having coated his remarks with that syntactic sugar, Obama gets down to a very grim business. And what a contrast it is. He ticks off a program at cruel variance with the outward message. What we need to do to stay alive, he says, is control guns, clamp down on social media, review the visa-waiver program. The fine print of the speech is such a negation of the soaring rhetoric that it might as well be from another speech.

    A moment’s consideration of the speech makes it apparent that “the only thing to fear is not fear itself.” The main thing to fear is falsification. The administration is deathly afraid of admitting it got it wrong from the beginning. Or worse yet, admitting where it was going all along. That would ruin its aura of benevolent omniscience. Hope and Change in conflict with Islamism can neither be explained nor managed within the framework of the Narrative. The result is two messages in the speech: the pablum of the Narrative overlaid with the creeping fascism of the details.

    But here again one needs to look away to see things clearly. It’s not just Obama who is putting the fist in the velvet glove. Across the Atlantic, France’s state of emergency could be extended indefinitely. Europe is creating a central border force with authority to override any national sovereignty. If we’re surrounded by “friends and neighbors” then we better leave the neighborhood.

    Bit by bit the world is both shutting down and boarding up. For the first time in history, online sales to each in his atomized individual home outpaced sales from stores. “Friends and neighbors” no longer seek excitement in crowds, they hide and arm up, Obama’s assurances notwithstanding.

    Opinions are only spoken in code — ask Loretta Lynch why. In a bizarre, almost surreal process we are told there are no enemies to fear even as we are warned to lower our voices lest we provoke that which does not officially exist — yet of which we are afraid.

    The administration’s attempts to square the circle are almost ludicrous. In a classic opening paragraph disculpating Obama from his inaccurate Thanksgiving prediction of safety just days before the San Bernardino attack, the New York Times invoked presidential ignorance as the excuse for error.

    The day before Thanksgiving, President Obama reassured Americans there was “no specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland.” Seven days later came an explosion of gunfire and the deadliest terrorist attack in America since Sept. 11, 2001.
    What may be most disturbing is not that Mr. Obama was wrong, but that apparently he was right. By all accounts so far, the government had no concrete intelligence warning of the assault on Wednesday that killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif.

    It’s as frank an admission of failure as ever graced the pages of the Gray Lady. The article quotes sources who say that only by curbing the Fourth, Second and First Amendments can the administration make up for the shortcomings of the FBI, CIA and NSA. “Unable to curb the availability of guns at home or extremist propaganda from overseas, the authorities may have to rely more on encouraging Americans to watch one another and report suspicions. Federal and local governments already have programs urging friends, families and neighbors to identify people targeted for recruitment.”

    Pavlik Morozov, meet Barack Obama. The only question is, who does little Pavlik monitor: ISIS or the NRA?

    It’s quite a price to pay for a bill to fend off a danger which doesn’t exist, but it is only the first of many down payments that will be made to maintain the false illusions of the adamantine mind.

  97. The Wall Street Journal headline reads Obama Moves To Reassure a Jittery Nation.

    Am I Jittery?

    Hell no.

    This was inevitable.

    And the trillion dollar security bureaucracy never saw it coming.

    Ditto with the 9/11 attack.

    Two weeks before I was on an airplane flight from Long Beach to Seattle.

    The passenger next to me was with the SAS and trained with the SEALs and Israeli intelligence.

    He told me our vaunted security apparatus had lost track of 19 terrorists they were watching.

    So what is Obama’s reaction to this?

    Stay the course, don’t get your panties in a wad, we have nothing to fear but fear itself.

    And because our vaunted security apparatus cannot protect us.

    We must accept a proto-fascist solution:

    Surrender our first, second and fourth amendment rights and all will be well.

    The political class was as thrilled by this speech as they were with his speech on race.

    Which defended another indefensible position, that he raised his children in a hate church.

    What the political class loves about this is it aims to crush the peasant revolt.

    Of course, ISIS may have other ideas about that.

    And so does Donald Trump.

  99. what a joke that prime time WH speech was by O…

    Is he kidding?…essentially repeats himself and his failed policies, goes on to promote his gun control policy and then goes on to lecture us about not being prejudiced against muslims

    first off, no one is saying anything against muslims as a whole…does he think we are all stupid? people are singling out the obvious, radical islamic muslims…but the democrats, including Hillary, keep trying to insist that ISIS will be happy because critics are doing what ISIS wants by declaring a war with Islam…isn’t that an ironic and backhanded way to try to silence critics of their policies..

    Are these people…the Dems…all completely stupid and sold out…what is wrong with them and their insulting simplistic excuses…

    finally, as far as this being O’s speech to comfort the fears of Americans…he did none of that…in fact, he missed the most obvious point about closing our borders…

    but…did you notice that O was a little short winded giving this speech…not his usual where he goes on and on and on…forever, where he even needs to be buzzed of the stage…

    Why? he had to get out there and into his tux for a big celebrity party with Spielberg, etc last night…

    again, The Donald said it best…”Is that all there is? we need a new President fast”

He can sound bright and articulate on occasion, but more often, he seems to be struggling for descriptive words and phrases.

    ****************************

    freespirit, I can relate to what you are saying, I do not doubt Donald’s intelligence…and his aptitude for ‘seeing’ and talking about the ‘big picture’

    however his vocabulary is basic and to the point and as I mentioned there are times when I say to myself “Did he really just say that?” ie, the swearing, etc

    …let me suggest that he does this for a few reasons…

    one, DT already knows he has a big connection with working class Americans…they like his straight talking, no BS approach…that his part of his appeal and strength…

    two, DT is used to living and dealing in a world where he likes to not only shock, but throw his opponents off balance…he has said a few times he likes to hold the element of ‘unpredictability’ so his opponents are never sure what he is going to do…I have no doubts that was successful and worked for him in his deal making…he can overdue it and then have alot of leaverage to work a deal…

    I hope that when we get to the general election and if it is Hillary and DT, that he will keep up his straight talking but will also show a mature, statesman like side…

    Hillary is very articulate and imho, very poised…the problem is she is saying and supporting a lot of the wrong policies…and imho…she too is overreaching way too much

    so maybe the two of them will modulate each other in the national debate…when we get down to who is actually going to do what…

  101. Here is Erickson’s take on the speech, which the political class is raving about. Suffice it to say, he does not entirely agree with their self congratulatory analysis and continuing Obama worship:
    ——-

    The President of the United States is a cancer on our nation.

    He has spread ill will, pitted American against American, lectured us, turned his nose up at us, and more frequently divided us than united us.

    His malevolent influence has politicized all aspects of American life, from what we eat to where we shop to the cars we drive and our power bills, medical bills, and grocery bills.

    On his way to the Kennedy Center tonight, President Obama deigned to lecture the American people again. He stood at a podium in the Oval Office looking down at us and, no doubt, hiding the teleprompter reflection in the windows we would have gotten if he had sat down.

    What he said was again divisive, again unhelpful, and again less than reassuring.

    we will prevail by being strong and smart, resilient and relentless.
    That’s the ticket. But how are we going to accomplish that?

    In Iraq and Syria, air strikes are taking out ISIL leaders, heavy weapons, oil tankers, infrastructure.
    Except by the government’s own admission, we ran out of bullets trying to take out their oil tankers. Likewise, more than 75% of the air strikes have done nothing.

    Second, we will continue to provide training and equipment to tens of thousands of Iraqi and Syrian forces fighting ISIL on the ground so that we take away their safe havens.
    These are the very men Barack Obama said he never wanted to train to begin with and has openly said are not very good at what they do.

    Third, we’re working with friends and allies to stop ISIL’s operations, to disrupt plots, cut off their financing, and prevent them from recruiting more fighters.
    So Paris and California should not have happened then, right?

    Fourth, with American leadership, the international community has begun to establish a process and timeline to pursue cease-fires and a political resolution to the Syrian war.
    Oh really? And what will that entail? The President of the United States caving on the demand to remove Assad from power only shows how weak our foreign policy position has become.

    Now, here at home, we have to work together to address the challenge. There are several steps that Congress should take right away. To begin with, Congress should act to make sure no one on a no- fly list is able to buy a gun.
    Senator Edward Kennedy was on that list.

    United States Air Marshalls were on the No-Fly list by accident.

    A United States Marine was mistakenly blocked from getting on a plane because of the No-Fly list.

    U.S. Representative Don Young of Alaska was accidentally put on the list.

    Just go read the false positive section on Wikipedia to see how terrible an idea this is.

    The President of the United States wants to force Americans to give up a right without due process.

    We also need to make it harder for people to buy powerful assault weapons, like the ones that were used in San Bernardino.
    Columbine happened with shotguns. The assault weapons ban never really worked. It was essentially a “spooky gun” bill. Gun manufacturers just cosmetically changed their guns.

    Next, we should put in place stronger screening for those who come to America without a visa so that we can take a hard look at whether they’ve traveled to war zones.
    The man has been in office for SEVEN YEARS and he only now is suggesting this?! Seriously.

    Finally, if Congress believes, as I do, that we are at war with ISIL, it should go ahead and vote to authorize the continued use of military force against these terrorists.
    I doubt Congress has a problem voting to authorize force on ISIS. The question again is why is President Obama only now getting around to this. If he was really serious about this, it would have happened some time ago.

    Muslim-Americans are our friends and our neighbors, our co- workers, our sports heroes. And, yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country. We have to remember that.
    Oh good grief. So the Entourage “hug it out, bitch” phrase is now official American foreign policy.

    Let’s not forget that freedom is more powerful than fear.
    So freedom is more powerful than fear, but we need to surrender the second amendment without due process? That makes no sense, nor was it intended to.

    The President is a cancer on the nation, spreading discord, disunion, and malevolence among the people.

  102. Does anyone know what happens if Congress declares War on ISIS or terrorist organizations. I read a comment yesterday (here?) that said They could do that with or without the presidents asking or approval.

  103. Betty, I am not sure legally if the US can declare war against a group, only a country. It would probably be more like declaring war against drugs…kinda lame since we are already at war against these terrorists.

  104. The Washington elites so love this man, THEY LOVE OBAMA, with all their heart, their sole and their mind. Not everyone agrees with our Harvard trained betters however. Case in point: this article by Mike Walsh at pjmedia, comparing the forceful response of FDR to the tepid response of Obama.
    ———————–
    It is worth recalling that when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the U.S. had relatively little military capability — and much of it lay smoking and sinking in Oahu’s principal harbor. The country had to go on a war footing almost immediately (Germany declared war on the U.S. on Dec. 11) and for the first two years, the outcome was very much in doubt.

    By contrast, the American military of today, even after seven years with Obama as commander-in-chief, remains the world’s foremost fighting force. Does anyone seriously doubt that, were it unleashed with all the weapons in its arsenal, including tactical nuclear weapons, and with the only rule of engagement to destroy the enemy utterly and completely, that this war would be over very quickly?

    Instead, the modern Democrat Party and its amen chorus in the media can think of a million reasons why such a thing could not be done. “That’s not who we are” they say. (Says who?) Response must be proportional and measured — says who? Attacking ISIS at its source would only breed more terrorists. Ask Herbert Kitchener, who dealt with a similar situation at Omdurman in the aftermath of Gordon’s death at Khartoum. The Maxim gun ended the “dervish” threat for nearly a century.

    But ISIS is only a symptom of the larger disease, which is the spread of fundamentalist Wahhabist Islam from Saudi Arabia all over the world. This has become such a problem that even Germany — which has precipitated the current “migrant” crisis in central and western Europe — has publicly warned the Saudis against their fifth-column work.

    German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel urged Saudi Arabia on Sunday to stop supporting religious radicals, amid growing concern among some lawmakers in Berlin about the funding of militant mosques by the world’s biggest oil exporter. The unusual criticism of the Gulf state follows a report by Germany’s foreign intelligence agency which suggested that Saudi foreign policy was becoming more “impulsive”.

    The German government rebuked the BND agency for making such suggestions about Saudi Arabia, an important business partner that is involved in international talks to find a political solution to the Syria crisis. “We need Saudi Arabia to solve the regional conflicts,” Sigmar Gabriel, the head of the Social Democrats (SPD) who share power with conservative Chancellor Angela Merkel, told the mass-circulation newspaper Bild am Sonntag. “But we must at the same time make clear that the time to look away is past. Wahhabi mosques are financed all over the world by Saudi Arabia. In Germany, many dangerous Islamists come from these communities,” he said.

    Until Saudi Arabia is forcefully and directly confronted over its international financing of extremism, events like Paris and San Bernardino will continue and multiply. That’s a fact, however, that the president has yet to face up to; it goes against every fiber of his painfully politically correct world view. That world view, however, is getting Americans killed. The oath of office is clear about what the president’s overriding duty is:

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    The United States is not a nation-state in the sense the European countries are; it is not a country of blood relations, but of fealty to a document of western, Enlightenment principles regarding the relationship of citizen and state. By defending the Constitution — something Obama is increasingly loath to do — the president is defending the country. Because the Constitution, not some vague leftist bromide about our “values” or “the arc of history,” is exactly who we are.

    Alas, Barack Obama — who aside from a brief seat-warming stint in the U.S. Senate as the Chicago Machine’s hand-picked tomato can has held no significant public office — cannot win the war against ISIS because he refuses to call the enemy by name. He refuses to admit the motivational force of Islamic supremacist doctrine. He refuses to untie the hands of the military. Obsessed with such domestic ephemera as “climate change” and unconstitutional attempt to disarm the American people in the face of grave, individual danger, he cannot bring himself to see the truth, even as he becomes a national laughingstock.

    Nor can he bring himself to uphold his oath of office. There are words for men like him, and none of them is pretty.

  105. When did Barry visit Pock-EE-Stahn?
    Did he really say what is attributed to him in the last segment below? Totally out of character if he did.
    Anyway, at some point, HE may need admin’s fainting couch!

    SoCal terror probe points to Pakistan, raises trust issue in terror war |
    … pointing to Pakistan as the likely source of the pair’s radicalization, a development that threatens to expose once again the tenuous relations between the U.S. and the country accused of once harboring Al Qaeda founder and 9/11 mastermind Usama bin Laden…

  106. Thanks Shadowfax, I guess even if it was an answer our representatives would never do it.

    I found the quote from Dean Koontz’s book, for what it is worth here it is.

    “Some people misunderstand evil and believe it will relent, and because their mis-placed hope inspires dark hearts to dream even darker dream they are the Fathers and Mothers of all Wars.

    Evil does not relent, it must be defeated and even when defeated, uprooted, and purified by fire. Evil leaves behind a seed that will one day germinate, and blooming, again will be misunderstood.”

    -Dean Koontz – “Odd Apocalypse”

  107. Betty

    ‘Evil’ itself seems to not build in one human alone, unless they are mentally ill.

    For most humans, it idea of evil seems to somehow be connected to a twisted form of either religion, or group think by those that are obsessive about being harmed in their lives.

    When a twisted form of religion gets ahold of the idea of evil, they pick others as the cause of their difficulties in life. Thinking that their form of God is on their sides gives them an excuse for murdering other innocent people.

    Sometimes the idea evil comes from a small group of people in power. Think of Hitler and to some degree our Fraud. They pick the enemy, either of another nationality or sometimes a religion, and spread their twisted viewpoint to the masses, stirring up hatred into a frenzy, so they have some younger people to fight and kill for them.

    George Bush Jr did this by declaring WMD and going after Saddam instead of Ben Laden.

    The Fraud has done this by jacking up the race war.

    I have concerns that if Trump became President, he might take things a little too far too. I hope not.
