REPORT: OBAMA HAS MISSED OVER HALF HIS SECOND-TERM DAILY INTEL BRIEFINGS

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at the feet of his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

First of all, he’s probably HATIN’ on somebody keeping tabs on him (HOW DARE THEY! He’s the PRESIDENT!!!) Secondly, keeping us safe is boring. Not like a tidy little Par 3 in Martha’s Vineyard, where it’s a thrill a minute.

Third is, God forbid, we GOT hit, he’d get to be a hero on TV. Where he plays President.

A Paragraph

…from today’s Washington Examiner Op-Ed

Reality rains on President Obama’s foreign policy parade

…The relatively stable Iraq that Obama exited in haste during his re-election cycle is now being overrun by a well-funded and possibly self-sustaining terrorist army – arguably more powerful than anything America faced in al Qaeda. ISIS has amassed an increasingly advanced arsenal and is attracting thousands of new recruits through its successes, its pretensions to statehood, and even its widely broadcast atrocities. Osama bin Laden is dead, and ISIS is fulfilling his vision.

…dovetailed nicely with something I’d seen this morning that Megyn Kelly had posted.

Oh, GOSH. If ONLY someone had thought to tell Obama…

They Are Reclassifying Our Precious War Dogs as “EQUIPMENT”

…and LEAVING THEM TO DIE in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Jonah Goldberg: No military dog left behind

We’ve all heard the expression: “A man’s best friend is his equipment.”

You haven’t? Well you must not work for the Pentagon. There, military dogs are considered mere “equipment” and as such can be left behind when the troops come home.

…Legislation pushed by Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., that would require military dogs to be retired only upon return to the U.S. has been languishing in Congress for years. Politically, and morally, it’s understandable that the top priority must be given to providing human veterans with adequate care, particularly amid the horrific Veterans Affairs scandals plaguing the Obama administration. No politician wants to be accused of caring more about dogs than people. But that’s largely a false choice. The cost of finding room on military transports is negligible, according to many. Private organizations can handle the rest.

From Patrick at Popehat:

If you believe it’s wrong for the army to abandon its dogs in the wilds of Iraq and (coming soon) Afghanistan, why not call your congressional representatives to let them know you support Walter Jones’ bill prohibiting such practices, and may vote accordingly come November?

Of Course You Know, Since ALL Black Youths Are SO Disenfranchised by White Folk

…that when he attacked this granny in Publix, she brought it on herself.

And, of course, he knew how to defend himself against her White Privilege. NINE previous felony charges, including robbery with a weapon, kind of hone your survival skills. His runnin’ buddies are equally as accomplished…

…The video allegedly shows Cox and two other teenagers grab the purse and knock Dunaway to the ground. She suffered a head injury and broken bones.

…Investigators said that immediately after the crime they didn’t get as many tips as they expected, but they were able to trace where Cox and two other teens allegedly used Dunaway’s stolen credit cards. They said they were able to collect surveillance video of the teens using the credit cards.

“Those video images gave us car descriptions. Those cars came back as being stolen, and as part of where the cars were stolen and a couple other things the investigation led to, it’s these three kids,” said Lt. Mike Bryant with the Ocoee Police Department.

When police decided to charge Cox in the Publix incident, they learned that he and two other 14-year-olds they were seeking were already in the Juvenile Detention Center, accused of using stolen credit cards and having stolen cars.

Those other two teens had a combined 26 felonies, police said.

I’m sure it’s our fault in there somewhere. Let me search my soul.

Nope. Nothing yet.

Think back to some of the illustrious moments in this administration’s reign so far. They LOCKED WWII Vets OUT of their Memorial, wouldn’t allow Boy Scouts and OLD LADIES through the White House, THREATENED military retiree pay, BARRICADED the National Parks, wanted WOUNDED VETS to get their OWN insurance, gave EVERYBODY a WHOPPIN’ heart attack of EPIC PROPORTIONS…but kept the bucks flowing to the “how on EARTH did these wymmins get so ROTUND?” research committee.

Well. Except where the ugly chick laughing, the dog handler ~ pretty much everybody else, right on up to the harridan General running the unit was FORCED OUT OF THE ARMY/did some brig time.

Iraq’s Christians are begging the world for help. Is anybody listening?

Since capturing the country’s second largest city of Mosul in early June, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has ordered Christians to convert to Islam, pay jizya taxes levied on non-Muslims, or die. The extremist Sunni group is also persecuting and murdering Turkmen and Shabaks, both Muslim religious minorities.

Human rights lawyer Nina Shea described the horror in Mosul to me: “(ISIS) took the Christians’ houses, took the cars they were driving to leave. They took all their money. One old woman had her life savings of $40,000, and she said, ‘Can I please have 100 dollars?’, and they said no. They took wedding rings off fingers, chopping off fingers if they couldn’t get the ring off.”

…For the first time in 2,000 years, Mosul is devoid of Christians.

“This is ancient Nineveh we are talking about,” Shea explained. “They took down all the crosses. They blew up the tomb of the prophet Jonah. An orthodox Cathedral has been turned into a mosque. They are uprooting every vestige of Christianity.” University of Mosul professor Mahmoud Al ‘Asali, a Muslim, bravely spoke out against ISIS’ purging of Christians and was executed.

But it’s Christians, so…meh.

‘Send Them Back’: Wealthy Cape Cod Town Rejects Plan to House Immigrant Children

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has answered the call to shelter immigrant children, but Cape Cod residents aren’t having it.

Last week, the Democratic governor announced his offer to house up to 1,000 children at Camp Edwards military base on Cape Cod. Concerned for the children’s wellbeing, Patrick declared, “I think we are the kind of country and the kind of Commonwealth who can step up.”

The town of Bourne disagrees.

A wealthy and historic community at the mouth of Cape Cod, Bourne traditionally attracts vacationers and tourists, not refugees. Residents fear the influx of migrant children could change this forever.

And I have no problem with it at all, as long as the exact same answer from, say, Chumuckla is greeted with the exact same deference and respect for the right to scream “NIMBY”, regardless of social station, ZIP OR voting card.

Terror plot targeting Eiffel Tower, Louvre foiled, French police say

French authorities say they foiled an Islamic terrorist plot reportedly targeting the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and a nuclear power plant last year.

The revelation comes as the country unveiled new anti-terror rules which included a proposal to ban terror suspects from leaving the country if it is thought they intend to fight abroad, The Telegraph reported.

French authorities revealed they arrested a 29-year-old Algerian butcher living in southern France June 2013, after they found coded messages between him and a high-ranking Al Qaeda member discussing how “to conduct jihad in the place you are currently,” according to Le Parisien.

The suspect, identified in the newspaper report as Ali M, reportedly said he would target French landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and

“cultural events that take place in the south of France in which thousands of Christians gather for a month.”

Authorities: Military service member with concealed carry permit shoots attacker
Gresham man injured, charged after firing on group leaving party, prosecutors said

A Gresham man fired on a group of people leaving a party, only to be shot himself by one of the victims, a military service member with a concealed carry permit, authorities said.
…One of the victims had noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle and asked attendees of a party next door who it belonged to, Hain said.

When she removed it, Denzel A. Mickiel approached her, shouting obscenities and threatening her and her friends, according to Hain and court records.

Mickiel, 22, went into the residence, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, she said.

As Mickiel fired at the victims’ vehicle, the military member retrieved his gun and took cover near the vehicle’s front fender, according to Hain. Two unidentified people also shot at the group, she said.

The military service member fired two shots and struck Mickiel twice, she said.

I’m sure Rahm will find some way to prosecute the defender.

I’m a “Neo-Con” on Facebook For This Post

Oh. And for asking a fellow (shortly there-after unfriended, just like the commercial),

“Who OWES you a job? And, if said PRIVATELY, religiously inclined company actually OFFERS you one, who are YOU to accept and then DEMAND THEY change for YOU?”

What I wrote:

Seriously. IF you CHOOSE to work for an employer who ~ and you KNOW this accepting the job ~ has sincere religious tenets and infuses them constantly through EVERY phase of the company, from boardroom to advertising, DON’T be surprised if you can’t DO everything ~ and HAVE everything you’d have ~ if you worked at a publicly held corp like Proctor and Gamble, or something. If YOU CAN’T live within the precepts of the FAMILY who OWNS the business, DON’T WORK FOR THEM. People ALWAYS get blistered when a religiously based, PRIVATELY held entity (like a Catholic school, etc.) abides by ITS rules and expects ITS employees ~ who knew that going in ~ to do the same, and it’s the most LUDICROUS thing I’ve ever heard. They don’t OWE you that job, less mind anything else. NOR do they OWE YOU the dilution of those principles for YOUR convenience or in answer to some bureaucrat’s mandate. Seek employment in a place that reflects your values, lack there of, or is publicly held and wonderfully diverse enough to answer to ALL it’s employees’ demands and those the current/future administration chooses to place upon them by fiat.

This utterly manufactured outrage (not to mention the outright LIES, considering the employer in question covered over SIXTEEN forms of BIRTH CONTROL and only chose to contest the abortifacients) at a narrow decision protecting that privately/closely held company right from the most egregious intrusion of Government By The Bic is ridiculous.

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.

Majority Of Delinquent Detroit Water Customers In Culture Of: ‘You’re Not Making Me Pay,’ Says Deputy Director

DETROIT (WWJ) – Several people protested outside the Detroit Water And Sewerage Department building Thursday, saying customers are having service cut off at an alarming rate and the practice is inhumane.

Organizer David Bullock with the Change Agent Consortium says the water department is going after customers that may be as little as $150 delinquent and says the department ignores large corporations which are behind.

“People always want to attack the poor … why are we attacking poor people?” he asked.

But when asked which large companies are behind in their payments, Bullock would only say that WWJ should research the issue.

…City of Detroit Water And Sewerage Department Deputy Director, Darryl Latimer,…

The majority of our customers (who) are in delinquency status, they just built a culture of ,’You’re not making me pay— I am not going to pay,” said Latimer.
