Maybe Dana Loesch can take over for John Stewart and the Daily Show.
I didn’t know NERF made sabers.
Source: President Obama is expected to formally ask Congress to authorize the use of military force against the Islamic State terror group in the coming days, even as lawmakers said crafting and passing such a measure would be a challenge.
Let’s not forget that before the 2014 elections, President Obama and Democrats downplayed the nature of ISIS. Could it be because when Obama hastily abandoned the war against terror, it allowed ISIS to flourish in the vacuum Obama created?
Now he wants authority to go deal with the threat?
Maybe he could have listened to his critics and experts before making a promise to his adoring anti-war supporters. Imagine if the media bothered to cover the facts anymore. Home many hostages would have avoided capture and death….
Sickens me that my country has a President like this.
Senator Klobuchar is proudly defending new found Hawk President Obama’s decision to escalate the war on ISIS by expanding the area of airstrikes from Iraq to also include Syria.
Don’t get me wrong, ISIS is pure evil, but the Senator used to sing a completely different tune on military involvement. In her 2006 campaign, she said wanted to bring all the troops home (well she wiggled and giggled to some form of a pull out stance).
On perhaps the biggest question about Iraq — withdrawing troops — Amy Klobuchar has a different answer now than she did earlier this year. In June she told Minnesota Public Radio she supported bringing home more than half of the troops in 2006 and withdrawing the rest by the end of next year, with one caveat.
“We need to bring a significant number of the troops home,” she said. “One reason I just can’t buy into bringing every single troop out by the end of the year is that if there’s a possibility that a peacekeeping force comes in or the U.N, comes in and if we’re asked to be part of that, we must do that.”
That was last summer.
Here’s the DFL Senate candidate in a recent appearance with Tim Russert on NBC’s Meet the Press.
“Clearly, at this time, this late date in mid-October, we can’t bring a significant number home,” she said. “We have to be reasonable. I have never been one to say ‘bring them all home tomorrow.’ I have never subscribed to one of those mandatory dates, because I understand that, despite my opposition to the war from the beginning, that we have to be responsible about how we bring our troops home.”
“But you did say bring home bring home a significant number this year, you’re saying now that’s probably not doable. What about a vast majority in 2007, which is what you said also?” Russert asked.
“These predictions were built on the promises and the predictions of progress from this administration,” said Klobuchar, “and we simply haven’t seen that so you have to be reasonable in what you’re going to do here.”
Once Klobuchar and Democrats got an anti-war Democrat elected to the Presidency, they did end the war in Iraq based on politics at home. ISIS, in my opinion, is the effect of that political decision to “bring our troops home”. That, coupled with the bungling foreign policy of this Democrat administration have left the World with no leader of the free world.
President Obama and Sen. Klobuchar have been too preoccupied with defeating the Tea Party and ambulance chasing to maintain a firm grasp of the burdensome and icky reality of foreign policy and the importance of not letting politics and the media distort your judgement.
I pray that this country wakes up and realizes that elections have consequences.
Senator Al Franken got elected, in large part for the backlash against Republicans for the war in Iraq. He was a chief proponent of lobbying criticism at the decision to go to war. Now that chaos is spreading in the middle east due to the US doing what Al Franken wanted (IE: Leaving), and Iraq and Syria are falling to radical extremists, was Al Franken’s 2008 campaign rhetoric the right prescription, but more importantly, what does now – Sen. Franken have to say to a Democrat President faced with tough choices on national security and the growing global risk of radical Islam?
Great video by the MNGOP highlighting the hypocrisy of Democrats on Iraq and threats of doing nothing.
While Minnesota Democrats are busy trying to create the perfect progressive utopia, there appears to be trouble brewing on many facets that are being ignored. Achievement gaps, crumbling infrastructure while spending billions on trains, under employment rates, anti-business red tape obstacles, high taxes, unsustainable spending projections and promises….. oh and what seems to be one of the most friendly environment to recruit terrorists for the global jihad against non-muslims.
In addition to the American rapper from Minneapolis recently killed in the bloody fighting inSyria, nearly a dozen former residents of Minnesota’s Twin Cities have left their homes to take up arms with extremist rebel groups in the Middle Eastern nation, U.S. officials told ABC News.
Read the rest…
But President Obama and Holder fear homegrown terrorists like the Tea Party and gun owners….

I’m sure we’ll be seeing another war on women ad blitz that was crafted on the 10th hole of some golf course soon before we start to take the growing threat of a true global terror war catching on in the American voter’s consciousness.
Here’s a great video from Jeff Davis about the timeline of the Benghazi attacks and subsequent coverup.
Its shameful that Obama is still in office and that anyone who worked for him during and after Benghazi is even considering running for office in the future.
Red Carpet? Meh. Movie premier, yes.
I am honored to get a chance to see a sneak peak of Lone Survivor Thursday night. Its the story of Marcus Lattrell.
Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and survival, LONE SURVIVOR tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative who are ambushed by the enemy in the mountains of Afghanistan. Faced with an impossible moral decision, the small band is isolated from help and surrounded by a much larger force of Taliban ready for war. As they confront unthinkable odds together, the four men find reserves of strength and resilience as they stay in the fight to the finish.
Mark Wahlberg stars as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoirLone Survivor, whose book has become a motivational resource for its lessons on how the power of the human spirit is tested when we are pushed beyond our mental and physical limits. Starring alongside Wahlberg as the other members of the SEAL team are Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster.
Stay tuned for a review.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton washed her hands of any responsibility in the murders of 4 Americans and cover up by the Obama administration.
Don’t forget, that with in moments of the terrorist attack, the Obama administration put more into the political response then they did into a security response.
So what does Minnesota’s Senior Senator who was first elected to “ask tough questions” have to say?
Accountability is a 4 letter word to Democrats. Our nation is in chaos, and Democrats are looking to the next election, not solving the problems facing our nation.
The Obama administration has blood on its hands over the Benghazzi attacks. Don’t forget that the same people demanding we bomb Syria today, did nothing when American lives were at risk. What’s worse is that they tried to blame the deaths on an American who made a stupid video on the internet rather than accept responsibility and admit the truth.
They did nothing when Americans were under attack in that Embassy. Ever since September 11, 2012, they have done what ever they could to cover up the facts that show how inept and derelict they are.
While I normally repost my Never Forget on this day, I chose to post this little video of the lady who was responsible for the security of the American lives lost. They were under her watch and supervision and died on the job. She’s a power hungry career politician who will do and say whatever she has to to achieve power for her egomaniacal quest to change America into a socialist utopia.
Democrats used to be upset at Republicans for remembering what happened in New York, Pennsylvania, and to the Pentagon in 2001. They would accuse us of politicizing it, and replaying the video of the Towers falling to drum up the public support for wars that they opposed. But now they are the ones waving flags trying to ramp up the Patriotism to support a war with no calculable benefit for America.
You see, I’m tired of people who used to slam Bush and Republicans for being war mongers waging those same wars, starting new ones, spying on Americans, and fucking up the world and America in their little quest to play Sim City with America. Like Foreign Policy is a burden when they really just want to control us little ants in the farm.
The Obama administration has spent more time and resources trying to undermine the American people, to divide and conquer us, in his (and don’t forget Hillary’s) quest to have a chicken in every pot. They are waging a political war on American soil trying to fundamentally transform the once greatest nation in the world, into a centrally planned bureaucratic nightmare where freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility are illegal. They didn’t start it, its been going on for decades, but they are the ones finally pulling the trigger on policies designed to undo America’s exceptionalism.
Where is Dennis Kucinich when you need him to introduce an impeachment bill on Obama?
He’s waging wars and getting people killed around the globe all to distract us from the progressive domestic agenda to destroy this country.
I’m sick of seeing Obama’s face everywhere. I’m sick of him politicizing everything to suit his unAmerican agenda. I’m sure by the weekend he will be speaking to a crowd of political drones with that with the usual rhythmic cadence that sways emotions instead of logic and reason, not to mention that goll darn pesky obstacle known as the Constitution. He’ll be blaming Republicans for something, making them the bad guy for his policies failing, or beating them up over some issue to mislead the American public in to supporting policies that are bad for them. And if the polls are really against him, he’ll probably go back to having someone faint in the front of the crowd at each and every rally.
An example would be “immigration reform”. Good reform to Obama is to just allow citizens from other countries to magically become American citizens with all of our rights and benefits (aka: Government handouts to make them dependent on Democrat policies). Its a goll darn election tactic folks. These are people that have likely been breaking laws for decades in some instances that we are now being morally challenged to show compassion to because their home country sucks so bad they have no choice but to sneak into America and steal our jobs, entitlements, and educations. Rather than use the power of his Presidency to help Mexico become a place people can find a good job, be safe, education, and such, we’re going to change or ignore our own laws because its compassionate? No it would be compassionate and the right thing to do to help change Mexico for the better.
Yes, I said Obama has an unAmerican agenda.
May God bless the families of all those who have senselessly lost their lives under Obama and Clinton’s watch, and may God bless the American people that we take elections seriously from now on and never make such a colossal series of mistakes in the voting booths that puts people that really hate the things that made America so great for over 200 years into office.
I’m tired of people being taken seriously who want to legalize theft and criminalize success.
Redistribution of wealth is theft. You don’t have a right to be lazy but still get everything handed to you. Eventually you will run out of other people to tax in order to get your free stuff.
America has no moral authority to pick sides in a civil war where one side is a murderous dictator and the other side is who tried to kill 150,000 Americans 12 years ago. Al Qaeda is the rebels in Syria folks.
Frankly Obama and the Democrats have done more damage to America in the last 5 years than the terrorists did in the last 12. That is something that I will never forget and I hope my fellow Americans wake the fuck up.
We are being manipulated. We are being used to install Marxism in America. These people lie on a daily basis and manipulate the news to suit their deceitful and dangerous agenda.
They lie and people die. But why? So you will surrender another freedom, another choice, and allow them to impose their will on you, your neighbors, and the people who employ you because they don’t think its fair that some people are more successful than others (unless of course they write a big enough check to the campaign.
Yes, I am really angry. You should be too. These people are doing everything they accused Bush of doing, but they are doubling down and actually making the world a more dangerous place. Bush destabilized the Middle East, but Obama has set in on fire. Who the hell are the good guys? Everyone kills everyone just because….
I’ve come to realize that our attempts at defeating terror was a mistake. Maybe we shouldn’t have gone into Iraq and Afghanistan. Maybe we could have done things differently, taken a different approach or not at all. Fought the wars differently, or not at all. But what I don’t understand is why we are still fighting Bush’s war when the people who opposed it from the beginning are now in charge of giving the go codes to those drone strikes?
It makes no sense. What the American government is doing under Obama’s administration on our soil to our own people, not abroad, makes no damn sense. Why would they be doing exactly what they opposed for a foreign policy so vehemently after September 11, 2001? What are we or the world to gain by lobbing a few missiles and bombs into Syria? Dare I say, to blow up an Aspirin factory or something? A distraction? Another Cold war to make the American people galvanize around the party in power? Maybe we can get a 3rd term for Obama….
Sure, it could be this is the last chance to establish the perception of us being a serious world power before Russia rebuilds its a Soviet era world alliance. But that ship has sailed folks. We’d better wake the fuck up quick here at home and repeal these progressive laws and environmental bullshit because we have a cruel world coming where countries will be forced to choose between dealing with little old America desperate for fuel, food, and resources or the mighty Putin Axis of evil. We are going to need to be self dependent on resources, food, and fuel or we’re going to be begging from China and Russia. That’s their play in the Middle East. Control of the resources.
Rambling rant as usual, but I’m angry. I’m angry and you should be too. We’re being lied to and manipulated. There’s no logic as to why Obama is doing anything he is. Why Obamacare? Why the domestic spying? Why blame that movie for the murders in Benghazzi? Why bomb Assad? Why is his Treasury reporting $0 added to the national debt when we are running deficits over a hundred billion dollars? Why are federal agents being killed by guns that Obama bought illegally, smuggled to Mexico, and gave to drug cartels? Meanwhile they are trying to take them away from law abiding Americans?
What the fuck is this administration really up to? If you compare their past statements and intentions *if* they get elected, to what they are actually doing, there seems to be a design, a plan. Its not going to happen overnight. It will take quite a while, years, decades, but they will eventually succeed. It took them 50 years to get to the doorstep of socialized medicine. Obamacare isn’t the end goal, its the trojan horse that will destroy the current health care market we have, requiring a total Government take over.
“What difference does it make?” she screams when her incompetence is exposed and people are murdered. You saw how angry Clinton was when being questioned about Benghazzi. I get that angry every damn time I hear about what Obama is going to do *to* the country I love so much. Not *for* it, but *to* America. His acceptance speak in Chicago on Election night in 2008 still gives me chills (bad ones). Fundamentally transform America….
I believe it is all by design. America is dying the death of a thousand cuts at the hands of its own President with the aid of the Democrat party. The ideas they hold dear for how to run a country are not founded in our Constitution, they are founded in the polices of Marxism. They don’t want to just run the country better than Republicans, they want to rule over the country and its people.
We must remove any politician who supports the policies of progressives from office electorally. Peacefully. We must take our country back from those who clearly hate it. We must educate the public into understanding that free markets, freedom, liberty, and Capitalism is why we have what we have. Marxism first requires the creation of wealth. Why? Because socialism doesn’t allow growth, it levels the playing field equally. Equal misery if you will. Not everyone is going to get to live in a penthouse if we just eliminate the 1%. Nope, the end result of the goal of the Democrats is a crappy life for everyone, but hey, everyone has the saem crappy life so there won’t be any envy. They don’t hate the Red, White, and Blue, but they hate the way we got here and they want to make sure they decide what’s best for you from now on.
So why are we waging wars around the world again when we were lead to believe they were wars of choice by Senators Obama, Clinton, and Kerry? Wag the dog my friends. Wag the dog.
