Now that General Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, has asked for more troops, why is Obama not sending them?
CNS lists several instances where the campaigning Obama said he wanted to treat Afghanistan as the primary front in the war on terror. So, what happened?
On Jan. 14 of this year, a week before being sworn in as president, Obama told Katie Couric that the United States “took our eye off the ball,” and that “our real focus has to be on Afghanistan, the border regions between Afghanistan and Pakistan . . . [t]hat’s my number one priority as president of the United States.”
Acorn, Afghanistan, what else has Barack Obama lied about?

The American Spectator has an article on Patrick Gaspard, one of the most powerful figures in the Obama White House. He holds the same "political affairs director" title that belonged to Karl Rove during the Bush administration. He's was a political director for SEIU (Obama's union boys) and a political director for ACORN (Obama's community organization and census takers).Last year he worked as national political director for the Obama campaign followed by a stint as associate personnel director for the Obama-Biden transition team.
Yet, here's the exchange between Obama and George Stephanopolous during a recent interview:
STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the funding for ACORN?
OBAMA: You know, if -- frankly, it's not really something I've followed closely. I didn't even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Both the Senate and the House have voted to cut it off.
OBAMA: You know, what I know is, is that what I saw on that video was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So you're not committing to -- to cut off the federal funding?
OBAMA: George, this is not the biggest issue facing the country. It's not something I'm paying a lot of attention to.With Gaspard as his political affairs director only a fool would believe what Obama said. Read the article and ask yourself what else is the Obama administration lying about.

This member of Drunken Democrats from Massachusetts is saying people will be able to stop doctors from including records of sexually transmitted diseases and abortions when they help create the Electronic Health Record (EHR) for every American.
It's obvious why Patrick would want to prevent this kind of info from going in his own record and also his friends and family. But, how about letting all Americans decide what personal information the government can have? That would be part of the concept of freedom that the left gives lip service to, but squelches at every opportunity.
Palestinians praying at the site, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, began throwing rocks at the visiting Jews. One has to wonder what evil these Palestinians could be praying for that would encourage them to set upon a group of innocent people. But wait they're not innocent, they're Jews and that according to this sect of Satan is sufficient reason to kill them.
Just remember this the next time you hear from some leftard that these barbarians need their own state. They already have a state, perpetual psychosis.

On the same day Lloyd Easterling, acting media director for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, confirmed they will reduce the number of agents on the border with Mexico, comes a report from government auditors that the effort to secure the Mexican border with technology and fences has fallen years behind schedule, will cost billions of dollars extra in maintenance costs and has no clear means of gauging whether illegal crossings have been curtailed.
Mark Borkowski, who directs the Secure Border Initiative for the Department of Homeland Security said, “We are as frustrated as anybody is.”
Not hardly, Mark, you have no idea how we feel. It is way past being frustrated we are now at full unadulterated disgust with the incompetence of you and your ilk.
The Government Accountability Office says the department has fallen about seven years behind its goal of putting in place the technology the Bush administration had promoted when it announced the Secure Border Initiative in 2005. In 2006, the report said, the department estimated it would have a system of cameras, radars and sensors in place to aid a force of border guards by the end of 2009, but the completion date is now projected as 2016. Why isn't Gabrielle Giffords working on this problem instead of working fund raisers in Delaware?
There is no excuse for this failure to protect and secure America and its citizens. Firing these cretins doesn't even approach appropriate payback for their traitorous behavior.
Rise up America and take our nation back.

Obama warned that Iran would be held accountable if it failed to live up to its international obligations.
Earlier this week, Iran disclosed the existence of the plant rather than have it exposed by the US. The secret plant is a violation of the non-proliferation agreements to which Tehran is a signatory.
"This does not mean we must inform Mr. Obama's administration of every facility that we have," Mahmoud said, warning that if Obama brings up the uranium facility, it "simply adds to the list of issues to which the United States owes the Iranian nation an apology over." And he boasted that Obama's "mistakes" work in Iran's favor.
Barack has no coalition and no ability to really bring pressure to bear on Mahmoud. So, Mr. President, what will you do, what will you do?
Jim Switzer, chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO), said the proposal to alter the number of deployed agents “sounds typical of this administration’s lack of real interest in securing the borders.”
“They obviously care more about their internal lobbying for cheaper labor than they do about the safety of this country. They sure aren’t showing any particular interest in the increasing dangers that the present force of agents are already facing,” he continued.
The Herald/Review attempted to contact U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. She's our "represenatative" here in southeastern Arizona. Giffords’ communications director, C.J. Karamargin, was not able to provide any comment late Thursday. Why? Perhaps if Gabby spent time in her district instead of whoring for donations in Delaware with Joe Biden she could respond quickly to issues directly effecting her constituency.
Then the Herald/Review wonders why people want her recalled. Their editorial was ill-advised.

"We are being threatened with death,'' he said. He's sleeping on chairs, and he claims his throat is sore from toxic gases and "Israeli mercenaries'' are torturing him with high-frequency radiation.
He should pack that cowboy hat of his with tinfoil and await instructions from the mother ship.
Zelaya says he has no plans to leave the embassy anytime soon.
"I am the president the people of Honduras chose,'' Zelaya said. "A country can't have two presidents -- just one.'' Unless he's a schizo like you, Manuel.
And this is the guy Obama wants back in power? Of course, a conspiracy nutcase who implicates the Jews would make Barack feel right at home.
This puts the US in concert with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who used the same forum to accuse Israel of "inhuman policies" in the Palestinian territories.
It is becoming more obvious by the day where America is headed. Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi calls our president, "my son," our president's appointed officials call Hugo Chavez's dictatorship "an incredible revolution" and we find ourselves in the anti-Israeli camp with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Ask yourselves, is this the America you want to live in. As Patrick Henry said, "Forbid it Almighty God!"

Lloyd spoke about the need to remove white people from powerful positions in the media to give minorities a fairer chance. What would happen if a white official suggested black executives step down? Is Lloyd channeling Robert Mugabe?
Obama appointed these guys, so we know where these racist ideas are originating.

It might be doomsday for Obama's agenda, but it would mean the saving of America.
Oh, guess where Biden was when he said this. He was at a fundraiser for Gabrielle Giffords, my representative here in Arizona, but the event was in Greenville, Delaware.
It would be nice if Gabby would either stay in Washington DC or here in her district instead of trolling for dollars in Delaware.
You would think all of this is the business of the Honduran people and really none of America's business. And, after all, the White House refused to officially question the result or even condemn the brutal suppression of opposition protestors during the Iranian election crisis. At that time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, "We are monitoring the situation as it unfolds in Iran but we, like the rest of the world, are waiting and watching to see what the Iranian people decide. "The United States has refrained from commenting on the election in Iran. We obviously hope that the outcome reflects the genuine will and desire of the Iranian people."
Why then yesterday did she say that Zelaya and the Honduran government must find a way to talk and to avoid violence? Why didn't the US refrain from comment and hope the outcome reflects the genuine will and desire of the Honduran people? Why does the Obama administration once again talk out of both sides of its mouth, having a different set of rules for allies like Honduras and Israel while giving our enemies Iran and North Korea a free pass?
It's a rhetorical question, folks. We all know it's just another step in the dismantling of this great nation. William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, are all applauding.

Telling people to take responsibility and forcing them to do something are not the same despite what passes for logic in the liberal mindset.
"What it's saying is ... that we're not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you any more than the fact that right now everybody in America, just about, has to get auto insurance," he said. "Nobody considers that a tax increase. People say to themselves, that is a fair way to make sure that, if you hit my car, that I'm not covering all the costs."
Once again, we're not talking apples to apples and he's not telling the truth. First, you don't have to own an automobile. Therefore, not everyone in America has to get auto insurance.
Second, illegals often do not have a license to drive and definitely do not have insurance. So, if they hit my car, I am going to have to cover that cost. The same thing will happen with medical care. Americans will be insured, illegals will get free care no matter what anyone says.
When asked again about critics calling the requirement to pay for health insurance a tax increase, Obama said: "My critics say everything is a tax increase."
Didn't he just say earlier that "Nobody considers that a tax increase."Which is it? He can't keep his lies straight for even a few minutes.

Health Care for America Now (HCAN), which is backed by a coalition of labor unions and liberal groups including ACORN and MoveOn.org, organized the protests to target insurance companies and drafted the plan which details specific talking points, tactics, props and strategies to stage the protests. It lists goals that include action that "mobilizes our base by animating existing anger about private insurers."
Nancy Pelosi, are you paying attention?

"He's got a very significant criminal history in his past," Police Chief Layne Erdman said. "He's been known to harm police officers when encountering them, he's obviously escaped from mental hospital so we do have concerns about what he's capable of."
Concerns? For heaven's sake this is a homicidal lunatic we're talking about here. And he didn't escape from a mental hospital he ran away at the fair.
The news report says Eastern State officials are trying to figure out what went wrong, prompting an immediate halt of criminal field trips across the state, and launching an investigation in mental health policies.
What went wrong is not realizing that taking psychotic murderers on field trips is probably a bad decision. Whoever made that decision will hopefully be looking for work very soon, a future in lawn care might be appropriate.

"Betrayal! The U.S. sold us to Russia and stabbed us in the back," the Polish paper Fakt pointed out on its front page."No Radar. Russia won," the largest Czech daily, Mlada Fronta Dnes, stated in its headline.
An editorial in Hospodarske Novine, a respected pro-business Czech newspaper, said: "an ally we rely on has betrayed us, and exchanged us for its own, better relations with Russia, of which we are rightly afraid."
Thanks, Mr. President, that hopey, changey thing is really doing quite the job.
Thursday, September 17, 2009
Yes, that's the way to treat your closest allies, at least it's the Obama way. I'm sure they really feel they can count on our strategic cooperation going forward. "If the administration approaches us in the future with any request, I would be strongly against it," said Jan Vidim, a lawmaker with Czech Republic's conservative Civic Democratic Party, which supported the missile defense plan.
Once again, the infamous Obama diplomacy skills reap a harvest of animosity from those we may need most in the future. But, by doing this he has made the world a little safer for Iran.

And, he thinks it's funny. "I don't even know about it," Gibson said, laughing. "So you've got me at a loss. ... But my goodness, if it's got everything, including sleaziness in it, we should talk about it in the morning."
As bugs bunny says, "What a maroon."
It is obvious that ABC censors the news to put Obama and other liberals in the best light possible. They would rather look like complete idiots then simply admit they are a propaganda tool of the subversives in America.
Remember Charlie, ignorance is only bliss where it's folly to be wise.
"I think it's based on racism," Carter said in response to an audience question at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta. "There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president."
There is an inherent belief among many in this country that Jimmy Carter should not have been president. There is also an inherent belief in this country that the worst president in modern times is Jimmy Carter and it would be nice if he stayed in the home and kept his mouth shut.
Meanwhile, Wilson's spokesman was not immediately available for comment, but his eldest son defended his father.
"There is not a racist bone in my dad's body," said Alan Wilson, an Iraq veteran who is running for state attorney general. "He doesn't even laugh at distasteful jokes. I won't comment on former President Carter, because I don't know President Carter. But I know my dad, and it's just not in him."

Obama told Wall Street yesterday that the nation’s economic outlook has improved. I'm not sure what that means, but he clearly wants us to believe that he has saved us from another great depression. He wants us to believe that his stimulus bill has staved off economic catastrophe. But, has it?
Here's a frightening article on how US credit is shrinking at the Great Depression rate and the conclusion by Professor Tim Congdon from International Monetary Research that the Federal Reserve and other central banks will be forced to engage in outright monetization of government debt by next year.
We are in a world of financial hurt, folks, and it's getting worse, not better. Our Joker president hasn't a clue what he's talking about or doing. By the end of 2010 his ineptness will have us deep in a crippling recession, if not an outright depression.
Barack Obama says, "We can be confident that the storms of the past two years are beginning to break." A better analogy would be that the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train.

Apparently not satisfied with his unbroken string of foreign policy failures, he signed an order Friday to impose a new duty of 35 per cent on Chinese tire imports. This is on top of an existing 4 per cent tariff.
Why? So, he can appease the United Steelworkers union which represents tire workers at US factories. It's payback for their support.
What's the result? China said it would now investigate imports of US poultry and vehicles, which could lead to a loss of more US jobs. It seems the administration is not concerned about American unemployment as long as those who lose their jobs are not union members.
The US warned Beijing against taking retaliatory action. Yes, I'm sure China is quaking in their boots...just like North Korea and Iran.
Sunday, September 13, 2009
Once again, Obama is preparing to bypass the wishes of the American people. "I will not accept the status quo. Not this time. Not now." Those are his words, as his jackals like Rahm Emanuel plot to force more of his edicts upon us.
Next week the Omamamites will move forward with their health care travesty and tell opponents to go to hell.
We must do the same as we did to stop the Bush Shamnesty. Call, write and email your representative and senators. Make sure they know if they support the government takeover of health care, their political future is over.
Rise up America and take our nation back.

The Census Director in a letter severing ties with the organization, said, "It is clear that ACORN's affiliation with the 2010 census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 census efforts."
This was a long time in coming, but finally this group of petty criminals, subversives and radicals have been exposed to the American public. Now, we need to make the same public keenly aware of just how deeply involved our president was with this pack of radicals that helped elect him.

I personally feel more secure knowing that whatever befalls our nation the supply line of thin mints will remain uninterrupted.
Now, despite the fact that we are bankrupt, we have begun construction on the biggest federal building project in the Washington area since the Pentagon 68 years ago. Do you hear the sound of cash registers going off? That's an estimated $3.4 billion which as we all know will balloon to well over $5 billion. Appropriately, the structure will be built at a location previously established by Congress in 1855 as the Government Hospital for the Insane.
Janet justifies it all by saying, "It will help us hold meetings."
They can't build the border wall, they can't fund education for our kids, they can't find the money that's been paid into social security, but Janet's set with a taj mahal and girl scout cookies.
How long is America going to tolerate this idiocy?
Wednesday, September 09, 2009
I don't have a lot of hope this will lead anywhere except it may convince more people that this Obama crowd make Haldeman, Ehrlichman,Mitchell and Dean look like they should be up for canonization.
Let's see if Obama throws another of his radical under the bus to protect his own hide. This does bear watching.
That doesn't matter to people like Dirty Harry Reid and his sidekick Pernicious Pelosi. Reid told reporters that “we're going to do our very best to have a public option or something like a public option before we finish this work.”
Harry and Nancy's best means the worst for our nation. If they win on this, amnesty for illegals will not be far behind. One way or another they will be added to our health insurance rolls at American taxpayer expense.
Meanwhile, Friday is the anniversary of the Islamomaniacs attack on our nation and according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's performance report, we will not secure a single additional mile of the U.S. border in fiscal 2010. We will however make sure that those who wish to kill and subjugate us are not harmed and have the very best health care we can give them.

It seems he was right. A lot of Americans are certainly looking at the country differently and they aren't happy about what they see in Washington.
As for other countries, recent reports state that anti-Americanism is on the rise in Pakistan.
A survey last month for international broadcaster al Jazeera by Gallup Pakistan found that 59 percent of Pakistanis felt the greatest threat to the country was the United States. A separate survey in August by the Pew Research Center, an independent pollster based in Washington, recorded that 64 percent of the Pakistani public regards the U.S. "as an enemy" and only 9 percent believe it to be a partner.
It seems our president's apologies for America have really had an effect, just not the one he was hoping for.

"I think he was brought down," Dean told "FOX News Sunday," saying he just spoke to Jones. "I think it's a loss for the country."
He mentioned the facts that Jones graduated law school and that he is an author, as if that alone credentialed him for government service.
Like most of the media, Dean ignores the facts substantiating Jones' consistent pattern of hatred of America and his desire to subvert and destroy the American system of government.
"I don't think he really thinks the government had anything to do with causing 9/11," Dean said.
But, 911Truth.org spokesman Mike Berger, whose group sponsored the statement, earlier told FOX News that Jones knew what he was signing. Of course, he did.
Sunday, September 06, 2009
Jones is claiming he's a victim (of course) of reform opponents. He probably means the senior health care mob that's been terrorizing our town meetings.
"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones said in the statement. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."
"But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future," Jones said.
Van, if you only had a conscience that would be a big help. As it stands, your extremist statements and actions have proven you unfit to serve in government. Return to your communist, black liberation radical cronies where you belong. Good riddance.
Saturday, September 05, 2009
More and more we have information coming out about Barack's Green Czar, Van Jones. We know he was a communist, he believed in a 9/11 conspiracy and denounced America the day after 9/11. We've heard his juvenile remarks about Republicans, punctuated by poor grammar and sneers. Now, it also comes out that he helped disrupt an Oakland police youth event with a demonstration of support for a cop killer on death row.
Our president appointed this piece of trash and is paying him with the tax dollars of American citizens. Despite all that we know about this evil, subversive scum, he remains in office while our incompetent commander in chief wonders what to do about him.
If we had a leader with an ounce of wisdom and dash of integrity this man would not even be allowed to visit the White House. As it stands, Barack will get rid of him, not because it is the right thing to fix this horrible mistake, but because he simply cannot afford to haul more radical baggage than he already is burdened with now.
Is it any wonder that the Chinese Communist flag will be flying proudly at the White House later this month? How long before it is a permanent fixture?
We have a president who has shown his fondness for people who love all things communist, from their flags to Che Guevara posters. His supporters love Fidel and Che and despise America.
We must take our nation back.
Friday, September 04, 2009
Court Jester Joe Biden proclaimed success beyond expectations Thursday, but on Friday it was announced that the unemployment rate rose to 9.7 percent in August, the highest since June 1983. If laid-off workers who have settled for part-time work or have given up looking for new jobs are included, the underemployment rate is 16.8 percent.
Barack's fool, Biden, said, "The recovery act has played a significant role in changing the trajectory of our economy, and changing the conversation in this country.Instead of talking about the beginning of a depression, we are talking about the end of a recession."
Joe, talk is cheap, where's the beef?
Democrats Say, "The Department of Education should not be producing paid political advertising for the president"
Dick Gephardt the Democrat House Majority leader rants, "The Department of Education should not be producing paid political advertising for the president, it should be helping us to produce smarter students."
Hold that thought. So, why today are the Democrats not screaming about Obama?
Because they are the biggest bunch of hypocrites to ever inhabit God's green earth.
You can read more here at NewsBusters, like Patricia Schroeder, the Democrat chairwoman of the Select Committee on Children, Youth and Families, carrying on about how it was outrageous for the White House to "start using precious dollars for campaigns" when "we are struggling for every silly dime we can get" for education programs.
Well, we're struggling more today for every dime, so where is the Democrat outrage now?
Thursday, September 03, 2009
The Obama plan to glorify himself among school children has caused an uproar. Suggested activities encouraged children to write letters to themselves about what they could do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at a later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals.
Teachers were also given guidance to tell students to "build background knowledge about the president of the United States by reading books about presidents and Barack Obama." Wouldn't the word presidents include Barack or are they saying he's something above and beyond that?
"We're clarifying that language," White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said.
Clarifying? Does this mean the children will not be required to salute Herr Obama? Will there be no government healthcare armbands? Will we not hear the militant strains of Obama uber alles?White House aides said the language was an honest misunderstanding in what was supposed to be a inspirational, pro-education message to America's youths. We know all about your plans for inspiring and educating the youth. It's been done before. By the way Barack, do you have relatives in Argentina?
Wednesday, September 02, 2009
Remember this was the genius that offered us the helpful, "if you are sick, stay home."
Meanwhile, this could be deadly serious. There have been over 550 deaths in the United States from H1N1 and a scientific advisory panel recently sent the White House a report saying it was possible that anywhere from 30 percent to half the population could catch what doctors call "2009 H1N1" and that it was also possible there could be between 30,000 and 90,000 deaths.
What's really worrisome is that Janet, who couldn't protect one state's border with Mexico when she was a governor, is now in charge of watching over the whole country. If this virus changes to a more deadly strain we're doomed.
Tuesday, September 01, 2009
The newspaper called the event "subdued." This crowd, estimated at 500 was considerably smaller than the one in Sierra Vista, but the report said they rocked the West Social Center with applause for speakers who opposed government expanding its role in health care.
The people are making themselves heard and that is a good thing. We just need to keep the heat turned up and the incumbents turned out.
Final Note: Word has it that Gabby is planning more meetings, this time on border area checkpoints. I can't wait!
Tragedy is unfortunate, but it is a part of life that almost no family avoids. That is why it is so important to make sure you are properly insured. If you are not going to take the time to make sure you are prepared then do not be surprised and blame others when you are devastated.
Giffords told us nothing new. She appeared because she was afraid not to and she picked the safest environment she could.
We heard the same old argument that the health bill does not give coverage to illegals. However, if the bill does not specifically deny it, the courts will interpret it as covering them. Giffords knows that.
She jumped on the tort reform bandwagon, so obviously she hasn't talked to Howard Dean. Here's what he had to say. “Here is why tort reform is not in the bill. When you go to pass a really enormous bill like that the more stuff you put in, the more enemies you make, right? And the reason why tort reform is not in the bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers in addition to everybody else they were taking on, and that is the plain and simple truth. Now, that’s the truth.”
So, let's see what Gabby does with all this constituent feedback. Despite her delight at being a blue dog donkey, my money is on her falling into line with the Obama agenda, once again. When Rahm tells the zombies to unite, what choice do they have?
Carmona parroted the same old liberal nonsense about how we have to change everything right away because the system is too costly and we're told by organizations like WHO that there are twenty or thirty nations ahead of us in health care.
Of course, liberals like Carmona, and he is one, never give detailed explanations of how the rating system is done and how we are comparing apples and oranges. No, they seize on some stupid study that they feel supports their agenda and run with it. Just like another liberal parrot that kept repeating her mantra last night, "check factcheck.org." I nominate her for the euthanasia poster child.
Anyway, Gabby, nice try with Doctor Demento Carmona. That wild eyed lefty can claim the office of surgeon general is apolitical, but we who can read, write and walk erect all know it's not and we certainly know this mad sawbones who went out of his way to demonize the president who appointed him is not. His NYC and SF roots are showing.
Stay tuned for the third act.
