Finding The Will To Fight

Goodluck Jonathan Gaining In Fight Against Boko Haram

Outgoing Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan isn’t acting like a lame duck when it comes to going after Boko Haram, the murderous Islamist army that has terrorized the northern part of Africa’s most populous country.

In recent weeks, government forces have taken the fight to the terrorist army, rescuing hundreds of women and girls held captive in Boko Haram’s forest stronghold in Borno state. Amid the cheers for Jonathan, who lost his bid for re-election to Muhammadu Buhari on March 31, some critics are wondering what took so long. As welcome as the new offensive is, some say it reeks of last-minute legacy gilding.

“Boko Haram is the big blemish on Jonathan’s legacy, so it’s understandable that he’d want to crack down and score some successes on his way out to improve his record,” Ryan Mauro, a national security analyst with the Clarion Project, told

In the last year, Boko Haram has abducted an estimated 2,000 mostly Christian women and young girls, selling some into sexual slavery and killing others. In the past week alone, the Nigerian military, along with coalition forces from neighboring countries Chad and Cameroon, has advanced on Boko Haram strongholds and rescued nearly 700 of the captives. According to reports, more than 200 of the rescued women were pregnant.

What the government forces have found as they fought their way deep into the Sambisa forest where Boko Haram is based, is a force that could have been reckoned with long ago. Some captured militants even said they lacked guns and ammunition, and were often reduced to fighting with sticks.

The recent offensive, as well as the tragic plight of women held in horrendous conditions for months, has left some in the international community wondering why these actions couldn’t have been taken sooner.

Gee, I dunno. Maybe because Obama put the nix on it? You know, denying them weapons shipments, supplies, threatening them with war crimes at the UN over using barrel bombs. That kind of thing. And now, perhaps with sanctions lifted since O’s pet won the election, old Goodluck is making hay while the sun shines. There is a lot more to this story than this little news article is aware of.

Twisted Justice Reason For Iranian Piracy

Get a load of this latest al-bullshizz ...

Secret Court Ruling Motivated Iran To Seize Maersk Tigris

Iran: Debt must be cleared before Maersk vessel is released
Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization has informed that Maersk Tigris was detained after a court issued a verdict against Maersk in a case concerning debt to Iranian company Pars Talaie.

So some kind of outstanding debt justifies using the Iranian Navy as pirates, seizing a cargo ship through force of arms? Are we dealing with 4 year olds here?

Iran has claimed that it seized the ship because of a business conflict with the Maersk shipping company. Maersk Line, however, urged the Iranians to release the crew and ship as soon as possible, since they are affiliated with Rickmers Ship Management.

“The crew is not employed by Maersk Line, nor is the vessel owned by Maersk Line. Maersk Tigris and its crew are thus not in any way party to the case, which presumably is the reason behind the seizure of Maersk Tigris,” the shipping company said in a statement.

Maersk Line also said the crew is “safe and in good spirits.”

The conflict over cargo that likely prompted Iran to intercept the ship dates back to 2005, the Maersk Line statement says. Maersk Line transported 10 containers to Dubai for an Iranian company, but when they were not collected after 90 days, they were disposed of, in accordance with laws in the United Arab Emirates.

“The Iranian company subsequently accused Maersk Line of default before the Tehran Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office and claimed recovery of $4 million as the value of the cargo. We challenged the suit successfully and in 2007 the case was dismissed,” the statement said.

So the shipping company is at fault because the buyer didn’t come and pick up his merchandise (and presumably didn’t pay for it either)? That’s pretty inane. Kind of a “shotgun” lawsuit; fling shit everywhere and see where it sticks? Of course the shipper was innocent. Get a grip.

The Iranian company then pressed civil charges against Maersk Line.

In February, after four years of court proceedings, Maersk Line was ordered to pay the Iranian company $163,000, which the shipping company said it is “willing to pay.”

Don’t ask me how civil charges even apply here, but it looks like Maersk was willing to refund the customer the cost of transport, and perhaps some of the cost of the containers themselves. February 18th is the date we are we talking about; which would put the seizure date this week within a normal 90 day window for payment. So what gives?

On an appeal seeking higher compensation, however, Maersk Line was ordered to pay $3.6 million, the statement said – though they only heard of this new ruling on Thursday.

“Only today, 30 April, have we learnt that the appeal court has ruled Maersk Line to pay $ 3.6 million,” the statement said. “As we do not have the details of the ruling, we are not able to comment hereon, nor at this point speculate on our options.”

What is this crap, some sort of Double Secret Probation? They had their criminal case. It was dismissed. They had their civil case. It came up peanuts. So they go and have an appeal, and have that case without Maersk even being party to it? Kangaroo much? And what a surprise, the Iranians rule that the Iranians are entitled to damn near the whole $4 million they originally tried for. This stinks to high heaven.

And then they get their Navy to go and steal the ship? No, this isn’t justice. It’s piracy, excused by the thinnest of nonsensical “legal” jurisprudence. After all, it was their own nation’s courts that threw the other case out, and arrived at the $163,000 settlement after ages of examination.

In a statement on Thursday, Maersk Line explains that the carrier in 2005 delivered ten containers in Dubai for an Iranian customer. The containers were never picked up, and after 90 days the containers were destroyed by the authorities, as stipulated by local legislation in Dubai. The Iranian company subsequently filed a USD 4 million lawsuit against Maersk Line, a claim corresponding to the value of the cargo.

The case was rejected by Iran’s state prosecutor’s office in 2007, and the matter was also rejected by numerous other Iranian courts, after which the Iranian company filed a case against Maersk Line.

On February 18 this year, a court of appeals in Tehran ruled that Maersk Line should pay USD 163,000 to the company - and Maersk Line has not until today, April 30 - according to the carrier - been notified that the court of appeals has sentenced Maersk Line to pay USD 3.6 million to the Iranian customer.

So what now? The Iranians are no doubt (safely!) wagering that the United States will not take military action in response. It may also (reasonably!) believe that, even beyond declining to respond militarily, the Obama administration may decline to respond in any meaningful way, in order to preserve its hope of a nuclear deal and better relations with Tehran. Of course, the administration has hoped that such a deal would facilitate the rise of an Iran that, no longer under threat from the United States, would evolve into a responsible member of the community of nations. The Iranian Navy provided a good illustration this morning of the reasonableness of such hopes.

If the Iranians do not swiftly release the ship, and the White House does nothing beyond lodge symbolic complaints, the failure to respond meaningfully will constitute more than a violation of its agreements with a protectorate and an ally. The failure will certify to the world that the United States is willing to cede control of the Strait of Hormuz to a piratical and lawless regime. Along with internationally recognized European land borders, it will be clear that the freedom of navigation in the Persian Gulf is something that the United States no longer guarantees.

Iran naturally denies this petulant motivation, but their actions could not be blunter if they were done by Hillary Clinton or Obama himself. In. Your. Face.  And America gets tar-babied once again, skillfully boxed into a corner by pResident Odimwit’s rainbow unicorn fantasy negotiations. And then pissed on with impunity by the terrorist enablers of the “faith” he so fervently supports. America, weakened and embarrassed again. To show willing for an illegal treaty he had no business negotiating, that should never get one vote of approval by the Legislature, and that won’t be adhered to by the other party for even a second.

Horry Clap. Obama is the worst negotiator in human history. Every single thing he puts his hand to, turns to shit. Every. Single. Thing.

Obama: If I can’t blame Bush, I’ll blame the GOP

Let No Crisis Go To Waste

Obama Implies Baltimore Riots Are GOP’s Fault

President Obama addressed the violence in Baltimore, claiming his political agenda would help solve some of the problems found in impoverished urban communities, such as the one where the violence occurred.

“There’s a bunch of my agenda that would make difference right now in that,” he said, calling for more funding for early education, criminal justice reform and job training.

Obama criticized members of Congress for blocking his agenda items, but encouraged Americans to do some “soul searching” during his joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe this afternoon.

“I’m under no illusion that under this Congress we’re going to get massive investments in urban communities,” he said, adding that it was important to work to improve communities anyway.

That’s right. If only we could pump billions into that city’s education system - for a populace that scorns education. If only we could reform criminal justice - for a populace that commits 4 times as many crimes as any other group in our society, the vast majority of them committed against each other. If only more billions could be spent on job training - because the deliberately uneducated have no interest at all in working at any kind of job at any level, unless it’s being a chart topping rapper or NBA star raking in millions. If only those fat cat banksters, capitalists, and big businesses would invest in this community - after seeing that community run into the ground, businesses destroyed and stomped flat, burned, looted, and burned again.

And we all know what the “code word” meaning of GOP is. YT.

Wrong on all counts, as usual.

Bad News


Buhari Set To Win In Nigeria

Opposition candidate Muhammadu Buhari is on the verge of a historic victory over Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, with most votes counted.

Gen Buhari, a former military ruler, is ahead by almost three million votes, with results still to come from just three states.

Analysts say it is hard to see how Mr Jonathan can overcome this lead.

The opposition has never won a presidential election in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous state.

Observers have generally praised the election but there have been allegations of fraud, which could lead to protests and violence.

More than 800 people were killed in protests after Mr Jonathan beat Gen Buhari in the previous election.

And so Obama’s stealth jihad continues.

Buhari supports imposing Sharia, islamic law. And PDP members have questioned why Buhari was picked by Boko Haram as part of the team to have talks with the government of Nigeria in Saudi Arabia.

And this link explains everything.

Obama Ups US Ante For Climate Emissions Cut: Now 28% by 2025

WASHINGTON – In a highly anticipated announcement, the United States will offer a roughly 28 percent emissions cut as its contribution to a major global climate treaty nearing the final stages of negotiation, according to people briefed on the White House’s plans.

The U.S. plans to announce its commitment Tuesday, the informal deadline for nations to submit their contributions to the United Nations. Although the goal of 26 percent to 28 percent by 2025 isn’t new — President Barack Obama first unveiled it last year during a trip to Beijing — the U.S. proposal has drawn intense interest from the vast majority of countries that have yet to announce how deeply they’ll pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions as part of the treaty.

Obama’s pledge constitutes the opening offer by the U.S. as world leaders strive to reach a climate deal powerful and ambitious enough to prevent the worst effects of climate change. In the works for years, the treaty is set to be finalized in Paris in December. If it’s successful, it will mark the first time all nations — not just wealthier ones like the U.S. — will have agreed to do something about climate change.

As part of its proposal, known to climate negotiators as an Intended Nationally Determined Contribution, the U.S. will also assert that its contribution is both ambitious and fair, said the individuals briefed on the U.S. proposal, who requested anonymity because the proposal hasn’t been announced.

What metrics the U.S. will use to back up that claim is not yet clear. The European Union, one of the first parties to submit its contribution, pointed to per capita reductions in emissions to show how it is cutting its carbon footprint. But emissions per capita are far higher in the U.S., making it an inconvenient measure for the U.S. to use to show progress.

Being conveniently small, heavily unemployed, generally low production, built from the ground up with massive public transportation, taxed raw as only continental Socialism can do, and with more nuclear power plants than everywhere else combined, Europe wins the “who us, carbon? non!” game without even trying. They own this metric totally.

The U.S. and other developed countries have been aggressively pressing developing nations to step up on climate change — especially those like China and India that are heavily reliant on dirtier sources of energy. Obama has described his strategy as “leading by example” and has sought to use the steps he’s already taken to cut emissions to ramp up pressure on other countries to do the same.

But poorer countries have traditionally balked, arguing their more modest means make reductions more of an imposition and pointing out that historically, they’re responsible for just a small fraction of the heat-trapping gases that industrialized countries have been pumping into the atmosphere for decades. So when Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping both committed to curbing emissions in a joint announcement in November, environmentalists hailed it as a sign that reluctant nations like China were finally getting on board.

IIRC, all China agreed to was to look at it at some point in the future. They didn’t get on board for diddly squat.

Mexico and U.S. agree to co-operate on greenhouse gas cuts — leaving Canada on the sidelines

OTTAWA — The Harper government is temporarily standing on the sidelines as international negotiations ramp up for a United Nations climate conference at the end of this year.

The conference scheduled for Paris in December is supposed to result in a post-2020 global agreement on cutting greenhouse gas emissions — a successor to the Copenhagen accord signed in 2009.

To help the negotiations, countries that are ready have been asked to submit their emissions targets and climate plans by March 31, a Tuesday deadline Environment Canada says it won’t meet.
In the meantime, the U.S. and Mexico agreed to a joint task force on climate policy co-operation on Friday after Mexico announced its emissions will peak by 2026 and fall 22 per cent below “business as usual” levels by the year 2030.
The Harper government, which has repeatedly stressed that Canada’s climate policies must be co-ordinated with our continental trading partners, is not party to the new U.S.-Mexico task force.

Nor will it submit its emissions targets to the summit organizers this week.

“Canada wants to ensure we have a complete picture of what the provinces and territories plan before we submit,” a spokesman for Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq said in an email Sunday.

How will the U.S. meet its goal? The Obama administration has avoided putting hard numbers on the size of emissions reductions it expects from specific steps the U.S. is taking. In its submission, the EU listed specific economic sectors — such as transportation, energy and manufacturing — where it expects major reductions, and named the specific greenhouse gases it plans to cut.

In contrast, the U.S. is expected to point broadly to the steps it is taking under the climate action plan Obama announced in 2013, such as new rules requiring sweeping cuts from new and existing power plants, stricter emissions limits for cars and trucks, and initiatives targeting specific greenhouse gases like methane and hydrofluorocarbons.

Many of those steps ordered by Obama face major legal challenges and intense political opposition, raising the risk that they could be undermined or even discarded once Obama leaves office in 2017. Contrast that with the EU, where lawmakers have approved a cap-and-trade emissions scheme that U.S. lawmakers have declined to enact.

“Just like every other country, this is a goal — it’s aspirational,” said Alden Meyer, policy director for the Union of Concerned Scientists. “It’s a fairly ambitious objective, especially if you assume that they’re not going to get any help from Congress.”

“Just like every other country, this is a goal — it’s aspirational”

Aspirational? No.

Inspirational? Perhaps, if you still believe in Tinkerbell.

Expectational? Yes, it’s another dumbass move, as expected.

Expirational? You betcha. It’s going to kill us all by flat-lining the economy for generations to come.

Until you see the MSM get behind plans that include building another 200 nuclear power plants, this whole thing is Socialist smoke & mirrors for a One World power grab. Seriously. If all the talk is about cut backs, new fees, raised standards, and magic turbines run by unicorn farts, then all this Climate Change Carbon Come Crap is just an excuse to tax you naked and lower your standard of living to match that of starving swamp algae.

This is America. We can do anything. You want cleaner living? Fine. Me too, although things are pretty clean already IMO. But not at the cost of jobs or quality of life. Plant trees everywhere, and start living at least half underground. Start farming clams, oysters, mussels, and conchs up and down the seaboards. Convert everything to electric power, and build enough nuclear generators to handle the load. Save most of the petrochemicals for building things out of. Plastics. Which become rare, because the “stuff” economy switches back to using metal and wood, and durability becomes the modern watchword.  Perhaps we make just 3 kinds of plastic, all uncolored, all easily recycled formulas. Universal beige. Urban Cars run on electricity and propane. City buses run on propane. City trains run on electricity. Diesel for everything else.

Throwing Nigeria Under The Bus

Obama: Let Them Die Until My Guy Is Elected

Must Read links to three posts that show how US foreign policy has shifted to destroy Nigeria and Christian President Goodluck Jonathan, while David Axelrod’s goons push militant islamist communist candidate General. Muhammadu Buhari.

Six years ago if you had heard of a United States president behaving this way, you might have been shocked. But today, we are no longer surprised by Obama’s lethal perfidy. We watch helplessly and with horror as the world crumbles.

At least 13,000 civilians dead in Nigeria since 2009 and the US looks the other way because Obama wants to put a progressive Muslim in power.

A political consulting firm founded by Obama administration confidante David Axelrod has been far more involved in backing controversial Nigerian presidential candidate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari than previously disclosed, according to a series of emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and interviews with sources on the ground.

Axelrod’s firm, the Chicago-based AKPD, has admitted to doing work on behalf of Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) party in the past, but claimed to have ceased its ties in March 2014 after the Islamist terror group Boko Haram kidnapped hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls.

However, emails sent between senior APC party members and advisers show that contrary to the firm’s claims, AKPD has quietly continued to perform political work on Buhari’s behalf as he fights to unseat current President Goodluck Jonathan.

Sources on the ground in Nigeria and familiar with how the elections have been shaping up say Buhari has run an uncharacteristically disciplined campaign.

They have run … a well disciplined message campaign, running on a clear and singular message of change,” said one source who agreed to discuss the matter only on background. “It sounds very familiar to another campaign some Americans might remember from seven years ago.”

While the APC has had trouble displaying unity in past election bids, the current campaign has showed few signs of dissent, the source explained.

“It strongly points to coaching they ordinarily would not have had in past elections,” according to the source. “That’s really the clearest sign that I’ve seen and other have seen that these guys are running a Western-style, Western-directed campaign that has identified a message through polling and research.”

While Buhari has positioned himself as an agent of change, critics point to his controversial and oppressive rule over Nigeria in the 1980s.

Buhari’s military government was known for harshly cracking down on civil rights, arresting opposition forces, and intimidating critical journalists. Human rights activists routinely criticized Buhari’s military rule. Buhari was deposed in a 1985 coup.

When the notorious Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, kidnapped 278 school girls from the town of Chibok in northeastern Nigeria last year, Michelle Obama began a Twitter hashtag campaign, #BringBackOurGirls. But behind the scenes, the Obama administration was undermining Nigeria’s efforts to take the battle to the terrorists. Obama refused to sell Nigeria arms and supplies critical to the fight, and stepped in to block other Western allies from doing so. The administration also denied Nigeria intelligence on Boko Haram from drones operating in the area. While Boko Haram was kidnapping school girls, the U.S. cut petroleum purchases from Nigeria to zero, plunging the nation’s economy into turmoil and raising concerns about its ability to fund its battle against the terrorists. Nigeria responded by cancelling a military training agreement between the two countries.

The Nigerian presidential election is coming up Saturday, March 28, 2015. AKPD, the political consulting group founded by Obama confidante David Axelrod, is assisting Retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim presidential candidate from Muslim-dominated northern Nigeria, where Boko Haram was spawned and wields the most influence. Buhari is well-known throughout the country, having led as “Head-of-State” following a military coup in 1983. He was dislodged following another coup in 1985.

Nigerian officials seeking to purchase weapons, especially Cobra attack helicopters, were outraged at Obama’s refusal to allow these transactions. Nigeria’s ambassador to the U.S., Professor Adebowale Adefuye, stated publicly that:

The U.S. government has up till today refused to grant Nigeria’s request to purchase lethal equipment that would have brought down the terrorists within a short time on the basis of the allegations that Nigeria’s defence forces have been violating human rights of Boko Haram suspects when captured or arrested.

We find it difficult to understand how and why, in spite of the U.S. presence in Nigeria, with their sophisticated military technology, Boko Haram should be expanding and becoming more deadly.

Another official quoted in the Nigerian newspaper ThisDay, stated:

The U.S. government has frustrated Nigeria all the way in our war against terrorism despite its public statements in support of Nigeria, as it fights the Boko Haram insurgents in the North-east… They want us to fight Boko Haram with our arms tied to our backs.

They have blocked us from procuring the helicopters and would not provide us with intelligence despite the fact that they have several drones and sophisticated aircraft overflying the North-east of Nigeria from bases in Niger and Chad where the Boko Haram fighters and movements are clearly in their sights.

Retired Col. Abubakar Umar, a former military governor, concluded that the Americans “have decided to turn a blind eye to what is happening in Nigeria.”

According to Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan, more than 13,000 people have been killed in the Boko Haram insurgency since 2009. Some estimates put the carnage as high as 17,000 deaths.

Between July 2013 and June 2014 alone, an estimated 7,000 people died in incidents related to the insurgency. Boko Haram – which means “Western education is forbidden” – recently pledged allegiance to ISIS.

When these formidable jihadists rampaged through Nigeria, last year – kidnapping schoolgirls, slaughtering Christians, and burning down churches, the Obama administration’s primary response was a hash-tag campaign on Twitter. If the besieged people of Nigeria expected more than lip service from the United States in their battle against Boko Haram in the days and weeks that came, they were sorely mistaken. They got bupkis.

Clearly, a more serious response than #BringBackOurGirls was needed to combat the growing menace – but the United States all but abandoned their African ally.  Not only did the Obama Regime refused to sell Nigeria the arms it needed to fight Boko Haram, it blocked other Western allies from helping them, too.

Oh, and don’t forget the crazy Tuareg almost right next door in Mali, killing, rampaging, and taking slaves left and right as they set up their own African Caliphate ... and they’re now armed to the teeth with tons of weapons stolen from the fall of Libya. A fall enabled for no visible reason by pResident Obama and Secretary of State Clinton, deposing a quiescent dictator and plunging that nation into complete and unending fratricidal chaos. And this was before Boko Haram, and before Mali. Almost seems like they found the right domino and just gave it a kick. And then they just walked away.

The Tuareg have won in Mali. A treaty is being signed that gives them their caliphate, a Texas sized chunk of land they’re calling  Asswad  Azawad.

Ethnic divisions run deep in the northern desert, the cradle of a Tuareg separatist movement which has spawned several rebellions since the 1960s.

The 30-page peace agreement calls for “reconstruction of the country’s national unity” in a way that “respects its territorial integrity and takes account of its ethnic and cultural diversity”.

In deference to the concerns of the government about separatism, it does not use the word autonomy in setting out the powers the region will enjoy.

It proposes the creation of powerful elected regional assemblies led by a directly elected president, as well as “greater representation of the northern populations in national institutions”.

From 2018, the government will set up a “mechanism to transfer 30 percent of budget revenues from the state to local authorities… with particular attention to the North”.

This may seem rather innocuous, but the northern half of Mali is pretty much empty. Nobody lives there. No cities, no towns, no roads, no lakes, no farms. Just wildmen. Tuaregs. So 30% of the national revenue, even in poverty stricken Mali, is some major Danegeld. Tribute. Protection money.

Well, There Ya Go

Wonder why Obama won’t call radical islam radical islam? Maybe it’s because he’s one with them. Or one of them. Or maybe he’s just being polite, since such a significant part of his cabinet, his advisors, and all those unelected, unvetted “czars” we don’t here a word about anymore are. Sure, they’re also communists, and they’re also grievance mongering America hating racist Black Liberation Theologists, but that’s a side issue. Just for today, let’s focus on the muslim aspect. Like the guy in charge of Homeland Security. Because you’re so stupid, you’ll eat this shit sandwich and ask for extra sauce.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Sunday that President Obama’s decision not to say the actions of the Islamic State is a form of “radical Islam” is at the behest of the Muslim community.

“The thing I hear from leaders in the Muslim community in this country is ISIL is attempting to hijack my religion,” Johnson told “Fox News Sunday,” referring to the terror group also known as Islamic State, or ISIS.

Johnson said the leaders argue their religion is about peace and brotherhood and “resent” that Islamic State is “attempting to hijack that from us.”

Obama is facing sharp criticism, even from within his own party, for instead using the term “violent extremism” to describe the actions of ISIS and other terror groups that are based on a form of Islam.

“If we don’t identify our enemies, we cannot defeat them,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, told Fox News on Wednesday. “Unless you accurately identify who your enemy is, then you can’t come up with an effective strategy, a winning strategy to defeat that enemy.”

Obama on the same day defended his choice of words by saying the term “radical Islam” gives such groups religious legitimacy they don’t deserve.

Most of us aren’t old enough to remember the Alger Hiss scandal and the post-WWII “red baiting” crisis (aka McCarthy, sort of) when it turned out that, yes, FDR’s government (and Truman’s too) was chock full of communists. Many of whom were paid agents and spies for the KGB. But hey, nothing to see there, as “socialist leaning” progressive Democrat FDR just loved old “Uncle Joe” Stalin. And to it’s dying day, the left wing press never could see much of anything wrong with communism, and kept up a “see no evil” facade for more than 50 years. And quickly buried the truth when it came out, so that now, a mere single generation after the dissolution of the USSR, most young kids have no freakin clue about any of it, and are gleeful to call themselves Progressives.

Now it’s being done again, only this time with both barrels. Commies and jizzlamofuckers. At the very top of your government. Nothing to see here, move along. Peasant.

Am I wrong here? I hope I am. How does “Jeh” fit in to that top echelon anyway? I mean, aside from being a just-slightly-black guy worth millions. And a lawyer, most notable for ending the “don’t ask don’t tell” thing in the military when he was on the Pentagon’s payroll. And the occasional odd thing or two that makes people think he has supportive ties to Muslim Brotherhood. It’s all very muddy, in this Most Transparent Administration Ever.

This Rather Galls Me

What Planet Have You Been Living On?

On the one hand, I’m relieved to see that the essays put out by right-wing think tanks are getting more pointed.

On the other hand, what they are saying now is what I have been screaming about since 2007. And thousands of other “crazy” “wingnut” “VRWC” “teabagger” Conservative bloggers too.

And yet, STILL, still we have loud mouth know it alls like Bill O’Reilly, willfully blind so as to appear “balanced” walking down the middle of the road with his eyes shut tight, denying that traffic is zooming past him from one side. And he’s the crazy far rightwing one, according to vast legions of Kool-Aide drinking leftists.

Wake the heck up already you morons. I’m blue in the face at this point and I don’t know if I can shout out the warnings much longer.

And this ... treasonous criminal ... still polls in the mid 40s? My heart breaks, my brain implodes.

But of course it’s all hogwash. The knee jerk over-reaction to certain things, the under-reaction to other things, and the distraction techniques they employ are all by design.

And the design was crystal clear when, earlier this month, as part of Obama’s desperate drive to absolve Islam of any responsibility for the murderous brutality that is unfolding around the world, he had the audacity to say that the media overstates the threat of terrorism. He accused the media of exploiting terrorism because “if it bleeds, it leads.”

He spoke as if referring to ambulance chasing coverage by a tabloid magazine. It was appalling to realize this man-child was talking about coverage of genocide. Of institutionalized kidnapping, rape, torture, and all manner of barbarity under the banner of the religion he seems to love so very dearly.

Depraved does not even begin to describe Obama’s words.

When reality does not fit his script, there is no depth to which he will not sink. We have seen this play out over and over again. His determination to turn the public eye away from the awful truth before us is relentless.

It is sick. And it feels sick to be exposed to it, to him, and the abject evil he seems to embody.

Read the rest at American Thinker, “Obama defends islam at all costs”.

Or just look at the cartoon, which says pretty much the same thing ...


IF if if ... if I should make it another couple of years, and if some normal American take the White House in 2016, and if the commies, America haters, jihad enablers, BRA racists, and greenie lunatics should be run out of DC, and if the lying sycophant bastards in the media are all put up against a wall and “re-educated” ... then in another decade or two when the truth finally emerges that this stinkweed never was an actual citizen, natural born or not, and thus was never even eligible to be elected bedbug counter, much less President ... I think I’m going to have an apoplectic aneurism.

Another Nutshell

Our Foreign Policy In Two Pictures


Can’t get much more concise than that, not without dragging up the old Nero meme.

h/t to Doc Jeff, too busy today, so I posted it for him.

Another Chewbacca Defense Strategy From Obama

"Why is a Wookie living on Endor? It don’t make sense! You must acquit!” cult. ref


White House: Jobs Program Will Defeat ISIS

What the West really needs to take on the Islamic State is ... a jobs program.

That’s what a top State Department spokeswoman suggested when asked in a TV interview Monday night about what the U.S.-led coalition is doing to stop the slaughter of civilians by Islamic State militants across the region.

“We’re killing a lot of them, and we’re going to keep killing more of them. ... But we cannot win this war by killing them,” department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “We need ... to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether --”

At that point, Harf was interrupted by host Chris Matthews, who pointed out, “There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims.”

Harf continued to argue that the U.S. should work with other countries to “help improve their governance” and “help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”

She acknowledged there’s “no easy solution” and said the U.S. would still take out ISIS leaders. But Harf said: “If we can help countries work at the root causes of this—what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?”

“The White House had to seem like it was doing something,” said Jonah Goldberg, a National Review editor and conservative columnist, while claiming the summit won’t achieve much.

Senior administration officials, though, defended the conference, and their description of it, on a call with reporters.

Asked whether Islamic extremists are in fact the focus of the summit, one official said extremism has spanned “many decades” and taken on “many forms,” but they recognize that those launching recent attacks “are calling themselves Muslims.”

“You can call them what you want. We’re calling them terrorists,” the official said.

Terrorists? Well, that’s a tiny step forward. Of course, those launching attacks for the past 1300 years worth of “many decades” or so have been also calling themselves Muslims, regardless of which of “many forms” they chose. Somehow they’ve always had the idea that this is how they’re supposed to behave. Good thing we now have Obama around to tell them otherwise. That’ll work.

And let’s not even look at the obvious, well researched fact, that many who answer the call of jihad are from the well educated, more financially comfortable layers of society. The kind who can find decent jobs if they want them. So let’s treat this bunch - they’re kinda brown, right? - so let’s treat them the same way we treat our own black male youth, as if they were just suburban white boys with a heavy tan, looking for a leg up with employment, a foot in the door so they could start climbing that old ladder of success. Because that’s worked so well so far, hasn’t it? (NOT). Hey, maybe Obama can solve the jihad thing by passing out EBTs and Obamaphones! Or some cold Colt 45 and some fine kind blunts? Works every time, yo!

I’d call him naive, but since pResident Narcissus D. Selfie spends so much time gazing in the mirror*, I’ll just write it as “evian” so he can read the reflection. And keep my fingers crossed he doesn’t think it’s a bottle of fwench water.

( * Until photo events of this week, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a “selfie stick”. Did you? How thrilling to see that Fearless Reader has at least one and is an adept. )

boots on the border

Jordan Sends Army To Iraqi Border

ISIS counter offensive to soon begin?

Jordan has deployed “thousands” of troops at its border with Iraq as it ramps up a campaign against ISIS militants who set a pilot ablaze, two Jordanian government officials told NBC News on Tuesday.

The troops were sent to prevent the infiltration of ISIS fighters into Jordan and as a show of force, according to the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Jordan’s King Abdullah last week threatened to make ISIS pay for the death of Muath al-Kasasbeh’s after video of the military pilot’s murder emerged. He vowed to wage a “harsh” war against ISIS “because this terrorist organization is not only fighting us, but also fighting Islam and its pure values.”

Abdullah also pledged to hit ISIS militants “hard in the very center of their strongholds.”

While there are pockets of ISIS support across the Iraqi border, Jordan’s deployment appeared to be “an intensification of ongoing efforts to secure the border to stop movement of men and weapons” and not the precursor to an incursion, according to Matthew Henman, an analyst at Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre in London. “It underlines a robust response on the part of government and the king in response to the killing of Muath al-Kasasbeh,” he added.

The kingdom has unleashed up to 20 missions per day by Jordanian jets targeting the militant group’s positions in Syria.

“We are determined to wipe them [ISIS] from the face of the Earth,” Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Jobour told NBC News on Sunday, citing the need for “revenge” after al-Kasabeh’s killing.

The UAE has rejoined the air campaign against ISIS, and it looks like whatever army Iraq can muster is getting ready to campaign in the empty western desert towards Jordan. Hopefully, this is a coordinated effort.

Meanwhile, pResident Sissypants continues to dither and blather and think about considering whether he should start wondering whether he should do something. Or not. Sorry, got to run, it’s tee time!

Also, American aid worker, ISIS hostage Kayla Mueller is dead. ISIS is conveniently blaming her death on the airstrikes, but you know what a bunch of lying shitsacks they are.


American ISIS hostage Kayla Mueller is dead, the aid worker’s family and the White House said Tuesday. The announcement came four days after ISIS claimed the 26-year-old Arizona native had been killed by a coalition airstrike in Syria.

“We are heartbroken to share that we’ve received confirmation that Kayla Jean Mueller, has lost her life,” Mueller’s parents, Carl and Marsha, and brother Eric, said in a statement. “Kayla was a compassionate and devoted humanitarian. She dedicated the whole of her young life to helping those in need of freedom, justice, and peace.”
U.S. officials would not confirm Mueller’s cause of death or say when she died, telling NBC News only that the family had received a message from the aid worker’s captors with information that American authorities were able to authenticate.

President Barack Obama expressed his “deepest condolences” to Mueller’s relatives and confirmed the young woman’s death.

No matter how long it takes, the United States will find and bring to justice the terrorists who are responsible for Kayla’s captivity and death,” he said in a statement which called ISIS a “hateful and abhorrent terrorist group.”

No outrage, no anger, no vows of revenge from Obama. Not even a call to eliminate ISIS, much less a promise to put their heads on spikes. We’ll arrest them someday. Maybe. Mostly. Whatever. Because, hey, the Crusades and Jim Crow. We’re just as bad. Cut him some slack, he actually said the “T word”.

The Great Equator

More and more I come to believe that Obama is an islamist.  It isn’t just that he is sympathetic to them. It isn’t just that he supports them. Or was brought up in their faith as a young child. I think he actually thinks the same way they do. Deep down, at his core, he does not see the world like a Western man.

At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama reminded attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but has been carried out by Christians as well.

Obama said that even though religion is a source for good around the world, there will always be people willing to “hijack religion for their own murderous ends.”

“Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

Right. Because in sandland, we’re still “crusaders” and “Franks” from the early Middle Ages (even though the Franks split up to form both France and Germany about 1000 years ago), and time stands still. Also, please ignore that war in those days was really brutal and gory in an up close and personal way. Also ignore that the Crusades themselves at least started out as defensive actions against the 400 year onslaught of islam, which by then had taken over half the Christian world in a never ending bloodbath.

The Inquisition was also in the Middle Ages, starting up about 20 years before Columbus sailed over this way. And we obviously haven’t changed or matured a bit in the 500 years since then. Also, please ignore that there are many conflicting studies about the Inquisition, debating just how virulent it really was.

Let’s not even go there with that last bit, with the blatant hypocrisy of a black man being a Democrat, and then on top of that calling out the Democrat supported institutions of slavery and the later Jim Crow laws ... as being driven by Christianity. Do we have any scholars out there? Have I lived my whole life under a rock? Because I’ve heard a whole lifetime about Jim Crow, and I’ve read quite a bit about it, and this is the very first time I’ve ever heard anything about a Christian justification for it. Slavery, I know, once upon a time was supported by theological arguments, because you can find mention of slavery in the Bible. Old and New Testaments both, so you can’t only point the finger at Christians. Nor do you just have to lay down and take it; while there are many references to slavery in the book, abolitionists also cited the written Word when they argued for manumission.

I’m just having an OMG moment, realizing that these things really are equated in his head. He’s an apologist. An islamist. And he has no understanding whatsoever about history and the development of cultures. Perhaps because his core culture stopped developing, on purpose, about 1000 years ago.

I guess we should be happy that he didn’t mention the witch burnings in Salem in the 1600s. That was Christian behavior too, kind of. I bet in his mind it excuses the latest atrocity from ISIS.

A Rose By Any Other Name


I’ve been mulling (mullah-ing?) this one over for a couple of days. I am so tired of posting and reposting the obvious, but in our insular, willfully blind “4 monkeys” world (see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, insult no islam) it seems like I have to put the truth out there every single day, in the faint hope that one more person will finally see the light. Not that our “leaders” in government or the media are ever, ever going to listen. They took the coward’s way out ages ago, and sold us down the river for no reason any of us can understand.

So here goes, once more:
Point 1. Islam is our enemy. All of it. There is no “moderate islam”. There is no “radical islam”. There is no “extremist islam”. Islam is a socio-political-theological philosophy driven by hatred and violence that has utter world domination as its one and only goal.
Point 2: Our government is a gnat’s eyelash away from being a treasonous tyranny. They do not represent us, they do not support the fundamental American ideals, and they trash and ignore the Constitution whenever they want to. We live one jackboot away from a police state and it gets worse every day.

Muslim Brotherhood is not formally labeled as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States. Neither is Boko Haram. Muslim Brotherhood has close ties to the White House. How is that even possible? In the news just the other day:

Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders Hosted at State Department

The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.

So much for Obama’s Arab Spring. Millions of Egyptians rallied and protested and got Morsi and the Brotherhood thrown out. Yet Obama still supports them. rolleyes Well, you read all about it 2 days ago, it’s disgusting, and I don’t want to talk about it. Wrongest possible approach, as usual.

And what a surprise, a couple days later we get this ...
Open Jihad Declared in Egypt

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.

Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.

The statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.

Gosh, it’s like they’re suddenly revitalized. Pulled from the shadows and re-energized, with a new sense of legitimacy. Golly, I wonder how that happened?

And let’s not ignore the audacity, the raw chutzpah, of those statements coming from the State Department, how the actions of ISIS and these other islamic jihad terrorist groups have nothing to do with islam. That’s the latest one. Cubic stupid mated with unmitigated gall. Who buys this crap?

I really am at the point of just giving up, washing my hands of this idiocy and walking away. Bizzaro World. It’s the politics of insanity and inanity. It’s the Wookie Defense: it don’t make sense.

And then I found an essay that might just help figure it out. All of this makes perfect sense, from a pro-Caliphate one-world islamic perspective. At the cost of everything American. Which is treason, or tyranny, or both, or unbelievably close to either. But we can’t notice that monkey either.

The debate over Islamic terrorism has shifted so far from reality that it has now become an argument between the administration, which insists that there is nothing Islamic about ISIS, and critics who contend that a minority of Islamic extremists are the ones causing all the problems.

Our Countering Violent Extremism program emphasizes the centrality of Islamic legal authority as the best means of fighting Islamic terrorists. Our ideological warfare slams terrorists for not accepting the proper Islamic chain of command. Our solution to Islamic terrorism is a call for Sharia submission.

That’s not an American position. It’s an Islamic position and it puts us in the strange position of arguing Islamic legalism with Islamic terrorists. Our politicians, generals and cops insist that the Islamic terrorists we’re dealing with know nothing about Islam because that is what their Saudi liaisons told them to say.

It’s as if we were fighting Marxist terrorist groups by reproving them for not accepting the authority of the USSR or the Fourth International. It’s not only stupid of us to nitpick another ideology’s fine points, especially when our leaders don’t know what they’re talking about, but our path to victory involves uniting our enemies behind one central theocracy. That’s even worse than arming and training them, which we’re also doing (but only for the moderate genocidal terrorists, not the extremists).

Please take 5 minutes and read the essay The Imaginary Islamic Radical.

See? It was all in your mind. The world is perfectly fine and dandy, and our nation’s foreign policy is sound. It’s you who are crazy. Probably comes from being cisgendered without conscious choice, and being so racist and privileged that you call that “normal”, not even “heteronormative”.

Except that cartoon up at the top of this post mirrors exactly what the essay says, and exactly what Muslim Brotherhood is doing. And our Executive Branch as well.

Hoist On Her Own Petard, I Hope

Obozo’s AG Nominee: ‘Right To Work Is Shared By Everyone In This Country Regardless’ Of Immigration Status

Like Hell it is, hamster breath!

You have to wait for Senator Windbag to finish at the very end to hear her, and I’m wondering if this wasn’t “skillfully” edited to break the context. BUT her response starts out on entirely the wrong foot, so any waffle rich verbal weasel dancing she does after the cut is just her trying to lasso smoke and call it beefsteak.

Senator Sessions, Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch at today’s Judiciary hearing to consider her nomination. Sessions asked Lynch about the President’s decision to bypass Congress to order a sweeping amnesty, and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers.

In addition to suspending enforcement for nearly all of the 12 million individuals unlawfully present in the United States, President Obama issued an executive decree on November 20th, 2014, extending work permits, Social Security, Medicare, tax credits, and government identification to 5 million illegal immigrants and illegal visa violators. This would allow illegal immigrants to take any job in America, regardless of chronic high unemployment for Americans—including a 10.4 percent unemployment rate for African-American workers. Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, explained—contra AG Holder’s “breathtaking” contention that amnesty was a civil right—that unlawful amnesty for illegal immigrants violated the rights of U.S. citizens to the full protection of their laws, including those laws passed by Congress to protect their jobs and wages from illegal competition. The President’s executive edict (an edict he said previously only an Emperor would deign to issue) voids Americans’ legal protections in law, supplanting them with a new executive policy that Congress and voters have rejected, a policy which forces unemployed Americans to compete against a large and growing illegal workforce.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
