This Has to Be the Most BARFTASTIC Video to Hit the Web…

…since Cover Oregon’s tweeting birds, mewling Kiera Knightly look-alike and rabid raccoons attempted to convince people in that state that Obamacare was tha bomb. It’s SO bad, I am inspired enough to be dusting off my vintage, late 1960′s Yamaha six-string and resurrecting my black marble composition book of pre-teen, hand-scribbled warbles/romantic lamentations (streaked by AUTHENTIC pubescent tears) for a shot at YouTube fame. Stand by, ‘Merica. It’s gonna be GOOD…

Ebola Has a Thought or Two Concerning a HotAir Headline:

…”Why Rand Paul Likes to Fight About Foreign Policy”:

The inference that Senator Paul’s major foreign policy mistake is that he’s against non-Congress sanctioned engagements is ignorant; purposefully or otherwise. One need only read the differences between his 2013 Platform to Revitalize America and the 2014 version to watch him stumble left and right on that issue, military funding as well, which still doesn’t show the issue that is Paul’s primary foreign policy flaw.

Sen. Paul, like his father, has been talking about downgrading, severely, the American presence overseas, all the while using our “strike anywhere” capabilities and prior demobilizations as primary premises for that debate. Unfortunately for Paul, that argument is innately fallacious: fast response with sufficient military assets is directly linked to a logistical supply chain that would evaporate with the degradation of forward bases throughout the world, both on allied and US territories. Sen. Paul seems to forget that there is a necessary logistical supply chain allowing these activities to occur. A prime reference for this was the materiel movement issues in the early years of Afghanistan for resupply, as our limited basing and restrictive airspaces of neighboring countries not favorable to the US put significant squeeze on the ability to project power into the area in the short term. His continuing wish to “scale back”, seeming code for “largely remove”, foreign allied or “friendly” operations would exponentially compound the initial supply difficulties in Afghanistan to worldwide dilemma at a near exponential level, instead of a limited AOR issue.

The prior demobilizations, which Paul references repeatedly as a defense of his projected cuts, then oddly removed in 2014, resulted in training surges that left troops poorly fitted and prepared for mobilization in a conventional conflict. Spin up time was something the United States could afford when crossing international distances required quite a bit of time, like WWII and even into Vietnam. With increasing technological reliance, spin up time on the materiel end is increasing, rather than decreasing in time on the general scale; concurrent with troop and operator training. Scaling back on defense purchases would further increase both R&D and line production for the weapon systems, EO targeting, etc necessary for the modern warfighter. Sen. Paul also has a huge issue in that he tries to argue the military budget, ignoring that he calls for cuts in 2013 PRA, then argues for restoration of sequestered funds under the guise that they will now “keep the military complex of yesterday in check.” I’m personally left questioning how removing funds, then returning funds, keeps anything “in check”.

“The budget adds back more than $126 billion to defense, above the sequester amount, but it continues to keep the large military complex of yesterday in check…”

Statements like these would rapidly raise eyebrows with our Marines serving at embassies, as their sole detail is not simply to secure TS documents and HDs. The entire detail does not simply fall in for destruction or securing of classified materials. The reasoning is simple: if you’re under attack, collecting documents without overwatch gets everyone killed. To quote the MSESG Mission Statement:

” The primary mission of the Marine Security Guard (MSG) is to provide internal security at designated U.S. diplomatic and consular facilities in order to prevent the compromise of classified material vital to the national security of the United States. The secondary mission of the MSG is to provide protection for U.S. citizens and U.S government property located within designated U.S. diplomatic and consular premises during exigent circumstances (urgent temporary circumstances which require immediate aid or action).”
http://www.mcesg.marines.mil/About/MCESGMission.aspx”

The inane exercise of cross-analyzing the US military budget against the Chinese and broadly declaring the US budget is six times the size shows a callous misunderstanding of military funding. A simple example is the fact that the Chinese can more cheaply produce arms, due to state manufacturing infrastructure and lower pay, while paying a 3M strong active military force far less per capita than the US due to lower standards of living. Further, and more disturbing, is the fact that he makes an apples to apples comparison based on gross expenditure, while the Chinese budget does not cover R&D, acquisitions, their 1M strong paramilitary units and other huge categories of military expenditure.

As for the WMD bit, we found plenty of things in Iraq, simply no nuclear material. That is readily glossed over along with little to no interdiction on routes into and out of Syria, which we know were being used both during and after the buildup by our forces.

There are considerable other issues in his 2013/2014 documents alone, on the foreign policy front, but I’ve typed too long for my comfort.

VIDEO: The Obama-Loving Teachers Unions Will HATE Deion Sanders After They See This

Proponents for school choice in America just got a huge ally and magnanimous voice to help in the quest to put the power of education back in the hands of parents, not teachers’ unions. NFL legend and Hall of Famer Deion Sanders is a “Champions for Choice in Education” spokesperson. He is featured in a new public service announcement called “Educational Choice Now.” Along with other notable celebrities as the WNBA’s Lisa Leslie, the NBA’s Jalen Rose, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, Lou Gossett, Jr., Vivica Fox, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Laila Ali, Mary Millben, Kathie Lee Gifford, and Christian artists “Mary, Mary,” Sanders is taking a stand alongside the American Federation for children and the Alliance for School Choice.

Yeah.

Yeah.

So. Just how IS that good, old USSR doing, Katty Pants?

WHAT a Chirpy Headline

…when the Devil’s right there in the details.

Job growth surged in June, with U.S. companies adding 288,000 to payrolls, indicating that expectations for strong second-half economic growth may be fulfilled.

The unemployment rate dropped to 6.1 percent, its lowest since September 2008, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. An alternate measure of unemployment that measures those who have stopped looking for work or are working part-time for economic reasons also fell, to 12.1 percent, marking its lowest reading since October 2008.

The level of underemployment actually increased for the month, rising 275,000 to 7.5 million.

And I think we can expect some sincere rejiggering of the figures next month, per Administration modus operandi: “Getchyer a big enough number when ya need it, sorta straighten it out later.

Three Kidnapped Israeli Teens Found Dead in Hebron

The three Israeli teenagers kidnapped several weeks ago by Hamas have been found dead in the Palestinian area of Hebron, where Israeli forces are currently raiding Palestinian homes, according to Israeli military sources.

The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed late Monday during a press briefing that the bodies had been discovered. Hamas operatives near Jerusalem were identified by Israeli intelligence sources as being responsible for the kidnapping.

I despise this president more than anything I can possibly imagine except for the folks he has emboldened.

ths update: THIS is what a REAL LEADER OF HIS PEOPLE promises:

Netanyahu: ‘Hamas Will Pay’ For The Killing Of Three Israeli Teens

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised a strong response to the killing of three Israeli teens abducted from a highway junction outside of the West Bank settlement of Kfar Etziyon on June 12th.

The Israeli security cabinet is currently meeting to weigh possible responses to the teens’ murders. Netanyahu ordered an extensive air campaign in the Gaza Strip in late 2012 in response to rocket attacks originating in the Hamas-controlled coastal area. While the campaign resulted in the deaths of several high-ranking Hamas operatives, including Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari, the campaign ceased admit international pressure — and resulted in Israel lightening its control of goods and individuals entering the Strip.

…On his Facebook page, Netanyahu was clear in assigning responsibility.

He wrote that the three were “murdered in cold blood by human animals,” and promised that “Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay.

No #hashtag required for THAT message.

Remember When We Told You You Could No Longer Refer to Them as “Flip” Charts

Minnesota Renames ‘Asian Carp’ Because the Name Is Offensive

Minnesota’s governor recently approved a bill to rename a highly invasive species called ”Asian carp” because the name was deemed offensive to the Asian community. The fish, which have been threatening the ecosystem of the Great Lakes, will now be known as “invasive carp.”

Surprisingly, a Democratic doctoral candidate in logic and humanities is at the heart of this paroxysm of piscine pissiness:

…Democratic senator John Hoffman was responsible for sponsoring the bill.

Caucasians brought them to America,” he told the Star Tribune. ”Should we call them ‘Caucasian carp?’ They have names. Let’s call them what they are.”

We have a name for you as well, Senator, but Bingley keeps telling me we’re a ‘family” blog. Or Christians. Or something that impedes my creativeness.

Remember, Only Americans Are Violent Racists

You know, the type who oppress “immigrants”, and force them to live in squalor and brutalize them horrifically

(the picture at that link is NSFW and very very graphic)

What happened to Darius in the City of Poets, a poor immigrant district in the bleak northern suburbs of Paris, has shocked France.
Now, to add to the distressing accounts, a picture of the battered 16–year–old Roma boy, has been passed to The Telegraph.
Darius was beaten by a gang of youths, dumped in a supermarket trolley and left for dead on the side of the road.
A mob of about 20 balaclava–wearing vigilantes snatched the teenager from his family after he was accused of burgling a nearby flat.
They dragged him from the squalid Roma camp where his family had moved a month ago, hauled him across the tram lines to the nearby housing estate, and pummelled him in the basement of a building. A neighbour, a Roma who has been living in the area for several years, later found the boy unconscious in a car park, slumped in a trolley, wearing his red T–shirt and track suit bottoms, his face swollen and bruised.

It is disgusting.

The team and NFL should change the Redskins name, not the federal government

Now that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has struck a governmental blow against commodified ethnic insults, I’m nervous, because I may have “disparaged” somebody this morning when I buttered my toast. After I put away the Land O Lakes butter with that Indian maiden logo on the box, I bit off a chew of Red Man tobacco and climbed into a Jeep Cherokee.

The Washington football club ought to ditch its slur of a trademark, voluntarily. It ought to do so on the grounds of basic decency and good taste, and, you’d hope, with an intelligent sense of history, context and place. If they won’t do it willingly, then the rest of us and their colleagues in the NFL ought to embarrass, jeer and cajole them into it.

But the method currently being employed, the mobilization of the U.S. government in favor of a correct sensibility, is wrong.

Welcome to the “New Normal”, chica. Tell the guys in the penthouse office “thanks”.

A Statement From the National Border Patrol Council

WHAT a frickin’ MESS.

The Rio Grande Valley Sector of the United State Border Patrol is currently experiencing record high numbers of unaccompanied juveniles and Other Than Mexicans (OTMs). These apprehensions are straining a border enforcement system due to the additional regulations, laws, and court decisions that apply to apprehended juveniles and OTMs.

Nearly half of all Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley are working at duties that would not be considered to be law enforcement. These duties include feeding, clothing, and watching after children. These duties are slowly being taken over by FEMA and other governmental groups, but still leave a small group of agents protecting our borders. The cartels know this and have been actively exploiting the situation. Cartels are forcing juveniles and illegal aliens to cross the border in between the ports of entries because it further ties up Border Patrol agents in the field. In effect, cartels are using these immigrants as a human shield to divert resources that would otherwise be spent interrupting their trafficking operations. Once the agents are taken out of the equation, the cartels are smuggling drugs, weapons, and special interest aliens across the border unfettered. At a time when agents are most needed to deal with the cartel threat, they are unavailable because they are either dealing with a tidal wave of humanity by either arresting juveniles and families in the field or by processing them in the stations.

Border Patrol agents have been dealing with a very difficult situation in exemplary fashion. The humanity and compassion shown to these children and families is unrivaled. Agents are not abusing them, mocking them, or neglecting them, contrary to what many special interest groups are saying. In fact, many Border Patrol agents have helped care for these aliens even at personal expense. These dedicated public servants have gone above and beyond the call of duty to care for these individuals while ensuring the laws of the United States are enforced.

This situation, which started due to violence and dire economic conditions in Central America, has now exploded due to the message being relayed that the immigration laws of the United States are not being enforced.

Interviews with detainees reflect this and this situation will continue if there are not consequences for breaking the immigration laws of the United States. We cannot continue to release detainees, even with the goal of deporting them in the future, if we hope to stop the flow of illegal aliens through the Rio Grande Valley.

Mandatory detention and deportation is the only consequence that will resolve the problem.

We’re with you guys. Shame your fearless leader isn’t.

What to Say?

I’m not the type who could, oh, go golfing if I was responsible for these people being slaughtered eventually.

US spy agencies heard Benghazi attackers using State Dept. cell phones to call terrorist leaders

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

And, as always, Vote Hillary! SHE’S (got the knife in) YOUR BACK!

Our Modern Pericles

He continues to inspire

On Tuesday, Obama took another shot at liberal arts students, suggesting that he only majored in humanities because he “misspent” his high school years.

During a Q&A hosted by Tumblr, one user asked Obama how America could “promote growth in STEM fields without putting humanities on the back burner.”

“First of all,” Obama began, “I want to say, I was a humanities major. So I majored in political science and minored in English.”

But according to Obama, those majors blossomed from a desire to slack off during high school. “I actually loved math and science until I got into high school,” he reminisced, “and then I misspent those years.
And the thing about the humanities was, you could kind of talk your way through classes, which you couldn’t do in math and science, right?

That sort of sums up his Presidency, doesn’t it?

Nothing Would Be More Apropos Than Birmingham as Site of the 2016 Democratic National Convention

Considering how it sits in Jefferson County, which was the largest municipal bankruptcy prior to Detroit going under.

It’s perfect analogy for everything the Democrats have done and want to do. You GO, Debbie!

It’s ALL ABOUT HIM.

White House braced for Bowe Bergdahl backlash

…White House aides were aware Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had been tagged a deserter, and that they would be grilled over not keeping Congress in the loop. But they figured people would be most outraged over the national security implications.

The White House has been surprised by how much attention has remained on the questions about Bergdahl, from the circumstances of his disappearance to the wild beard his father grew while he was being held that’s even led to Bergdahl’s hometown canceling a celebration.

All this, Obama aides say, is in their minds a proxy for the hatred toward the president.

Nothing to do with the fact that Bergdahl is an INVESTIGATED and DOCUMENTED deserter (only question is “why?”) or that YOUR administration has muzzled his unit mates for FIVE YEARS.

It’s that we hate YOU.

It’s ALWAYS YOU.
