Foreign Policy: Trump vs Obama

Yesterday, in the close aftermath of the Isis bombing in Pakistan, Donald Trump made one of the more incredibly grandiose claims of this incredibly bizarre campaign season:  that only he could solve the war with Isis.

“I alone,” he boasted.

In this regard, he is so much like the Obama of 2008 that it is downright scary.

trump-pakistanAlmost eight years ago to the date, at a San Francisco fundraiser, Obama said, “…foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton or Senator McCain.”

After belittling Mrs. Clinton’s experience as First Lady as being ceremonial fluff, Obama went on to say that among the three candidates for President, only he could pass the 3 a.m. Leadership Test. Indeed, he alone possessed “the judgment, the temperament to ask the right questions, to weigh the costs and benefits of military action, who insists on good intelligence, who is not going to be swayed by the short-term politics.”  source

What a piece of work.

And as for the ultimate foreign policy test, the one John Kerry called, “passing the Global Test,” Obama proposed a diplomatic Manhattan Project of sorts, with Iran’s Mahmoud Amadinejad. The same Ahmadinejad who said his country’s objective was to destroy what he called corrupt western powers:  source

Our objective is to annihilate all corrupt powers that dominate our planet today,”

We  all know how that turned out.  Let me ask you, does anyone, other than the Obama administration, believe that the world is now safer place with the infamous “Iran Deal” in place?

Somehow, taking a college trip to Pakistan, living in Indonesia for four years as a child, and having poor relatives in Africa convinced Obama that he had the necessary gravitas to engage in foreign policy on behalf of the world’s only superpower.

Obama’s grandiosity surpasses mere cockiness and is unseemly, if not dangerous. That same grandiosity is exactly what I saw in Trump’s tweet about the Isis attacks on Christians in Pakistan.  Their rhetoric is different, but their over-confidence in their own unproven abilities is strikingly similar.

So many scandals, so little time

ibd.cartoon

IBD has captured 10 of Obama’s scandals in this cartoon, but what about these?

The AP wiretapping, targeting James Rosen of Fox News, Seal Team 6, NSA wiretapping program, The Porkulus wasteful spending, and dozens of subsequent bankruptcies, Drawing Red Lines about Syria’s use of chemical weapons, then saying he didn’t say that.

I could go on, the the fact is, there are so many that we have forgotten about.  Not because they weren’t serious missteps or breeches of the public trust, but because there are just too damn many to keep up with.

The Latest Scandal™ is the continuing mishandling of the Ebola problem.  The consequences may be too horrible to contemplate.  Several of the Prepper websites that I scan have stated that this may be your last opportunity to get your plan and your preparations in order.

Hope for the best.  Prepare for the worst.  In Obamaworld, definitely prepare for the worst.

The Assault On Our Southern Border Wasn’t Spontaneous, It Was Planned

When I discovered how many ILLEGAL immigrants were flooding our border with Mexico and that they were primarily from Central American countries, I thought to myself…”now, wait a minute.”

My pause was directly attributed to my cynicism and my suspicions of the current criminal enterprise known as the Obama administration.

I just knew this entire fiasco was a classic example of the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Of course I couldn’t prove it, but one thing I learned from spending time on a farm was you didn’t need to see the dead rat in a barn to know there was a dead rat in the barn. The smell is confirmation enough.

Then my nose to the wind approach directed me to the blog Conservative Wife, where the author did some outstanding research and as her blog article indicates, our government initiated this mass invasion and was contracting for escorts/transport in late January.

I also encourage you all to forward this to others, and as she said, ‘MAKE THIS GO VIRAL.’

14 y/o executed by Syrian rebels

Yes, this is the group that our president wants arm. And, it’s not just him. John McCain wants to do the same thing.

Things are heating up even more in Syria, as if that were possible. It reminds me of the Iran/Iraq war back in the 80’s. The collective wisdom of the Western nations said it would be preferable if both sides lost. But, we ended up arming Saddam to the teeth, and you know how that turned out.

So now, we will probably end up arming the al-qeda rebels. Here is what they just did in the town of Aleppo: A kid named “Salmo” refused to give away a cup of coffee, and supposedly insulted the prophet mohammed. The rebels took him away, beat him, and then shot in the neck and mouth. source

Oh yeah, let’s arm these bastards. Isn’t that a just a fine idea?

Oh, in case you missed it, we also sent a few hundred U.S. Marines to the Syrian border. What could possibly go wrong there?

What is the difference between the mentally ill and muslims?

The most recent incident in Londonstan makes it clear.  Bernie’s description removes all doubts:

sodahead.com

Is there a group more delusional, more in need of therapy than Muslims who believe their religion is tolerant and promotes peace? As for their so-called Prophet, who can read of his life and not call him a murderous, Jew-hating, child-molesting, rapacious, violent, savage, barbaric, womanizing, and illiterate thug? Yet they hold him up as the model human being to be emulated.

There is a difference between the two types of mental illness. Those who hear voices telling them to kill are correctly called mentally ill and can be treated with drugs and therapy and be kept in places where they will not harm anyone. Muslims however are, for the most part, not correctly diagnosed as dangerous and subsequently are not treated with drugs and therapy and sadly are not kept away from the rest of society for our protection.

There are those in our country that believe we can treat Islamic illness with kindness, welfare, education scholarships, citizenship and all the other benefits our country has to offer and they will not place bombs in public places as in the case of the Tsarnaev brothers. I don’t know which is crazier: believing that Muslims are no threat to western culture or having a tooth removed by a Muslim dentist.

Islamic terror reaches grim milestone

You may have noticed the counter in the left sidebar with the running total of terror attacks reaching 19,999 since 9-11. The most recent update from Thereligionofpeace.com reports that the grim milestone of 20,000 attacks has been reached.

On a week in which two suicide bombers slaughtered over 54 Christian and Druze (above photo) and Sunni extremists  massacred nearly 100 Shiites in Iraq, TROP recorded our 20,000th Islamic terror attack since 9/11.  It happened to be the stabbing and dismemberment of a Jewish woman in her Iranian home by religious radicals intent on expanding a mosque.

Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”
(Sahih Bukhari 52:177)

“Killing Jews is worship that draws us closer to Allah.”
CAIR-supported Hamas

Thanks to TROP for keeping us informed of these politically incorrect and often ignored facts.

“And when I look at what’s happening in Libya, this big song and dance, whether this was a terrorist attack or a protest, and you just want to scream for god’s sake, are you kidding me, the last time we were attacked like this was the USS Cole which was a prelude … to 9/11. And you’re sending FBI to investigate. I hope you’re sending in your best clandestine warriors who will go in to exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil, that its ambassadors will not be murdered and that the United States will not do nothing about it.”  Lara Logan, CBS 60 Minutes, keynoting the 2012 BGA Annual Luncheon.

Polygamy and shariah, revisited

Mitt Romney made news recently for his family having historical ties to the practice of polygamy. Described by liberal pundits as “the ultimate Mormon oddity”, the truth is that the Mormon church officially repudiated polygamy in 1890. It was, in fact, a requirement for the admission of Utah to the Union.

Polygamy is an affront to the principle of equality between the sexes. You would think that this would be an issue that is championed as a women’s issue. Sadly, it gets little attention from international organizations, even on International Women’s Day.

The practice is common in the Muslim world, and is becoming common practice in Europe, as well:

“the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten reported statements from Norway’s Directorate of Immigration (UDI) that there are an increasing number of men with multiple wives in Norway. “The reason is married men travel to countries where polygamy is legal and then add a wife.” Though polygamy is illegal in Norway, “this is something that Norwegian authorities cannot prevent,” said UDI spokesman Karl Erik Sjøholt. …The Islamic Cultural Center Norway (ICCN), an immigrant organisation subsidised by the Norwegian state, advises Muslims in Norway to take several wives because polygamy “is advantageous and ought to be practiced where conditions lend themselves to such practice.”

Some time ago, a blog we used to visit regularly, pointed to a reprint of an article at The American Muslim that encouraged the development of sharia law in America by using the model of Tribal Courts, as practiced by American Indians.

I recommend that as a first step, supporting organizations dealing with Islamic family law be established immediately. A professional association of Muslims in the law field (of whatever specialty) is a must. A law school students’ support group should be formed, and Muslim youth should be encouraged to enter this field. A second step would be to establish institutes in the U.S. which can supplement legal education with courses in Islamic family law. At the same time, pressure should be put on law schools to include courses in Shariah taught by Muslims.

This is not assimilation. This is not acceptance of American Civil Law. This is unacceptable. Inasmuch as the political left has resisted the logical step of protecting the institution of marriage through the amendment process, is there any other remedy that has legal and historical precedent? There is. And it goes back to that “ultimate Mormon oddity.” Joshua Trevino at Brussels Journal laid out the case in an excellent post from last year.

The precedent is the 1887 Edmunds-Tucker Act, which effectively disestablished the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints until that entity gave up its doctrine of polygamy. The Mormons were effectively declared an organized-crime outfit: their properties were confiscated, and their leaders were driven underground. It took three years, but in 1890 they abandoned polygamy, Utah became a state, and the Mormons … have been good, patriotic, and peaceful Americans ever since. One, Mitt Romney, even has a shot at being President shortly. They were forced to join the civilized world by the United States government, which cared more for the norms of American culture than the values of the Mormon faith – and rightly so. Looking back, it is difficult to deny that this vigorous action – in which no American was killed, deported, put into camps, or hunted down – was to the ultimate benefit of the country and the Mormons.

If we could act with that degree of sanity, self-preservation, and humanity in 1887-1890, why not now? If we cannot, it is not because Muslims now – or any other immigrant community now – are worse than Mormons then: it is because we have lost the self-confidence to do it.

Afghanistan: Time to go

Michael Yon has some interesting comments regarding the war in Afghanistan …

It is clear that this war will end poorly.  Time to cut losses.

Our continued losses in Afghanistan are for nothing.  We should continue with a smaller presence to harass and kill terrorists, and losses from that are expected and part of the fight.  But the ongoing larger war is going nowhere.  We have been there since 2001.  This is 2012.  There is no vaguely discernible end.  We should look at Afghanistan as a century-long project, to be put on a far backburner.  The United States has problems to deal with at home.

The Daily Stupid: Ron Paul

This morning’s dose of stupid comes from libertarian/republican presidential candidate, Ron Paul.

You see, Ron is not too happy that jihadi terrorist Anwar Al-Awlaki was killed by predator drones in Yemen. source

Paul said al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born Islamic cleric suspected of involvement in several terror plots, should have been afforded a trial as an American citizen.

“No, I don’t think that’s a good way to deal with our problems,” Paul told MSNBC. “Al-Awlaki was born here, he is an American citizen. He was never tried or charged for any crimes. No one knows if he killed anybody. We know he might have been associated with the underwear bomber. But if the American people accept this blindly and casually that we now have an accepted practice of the president assassinating people who he thinks are bad guys, I think it’s sad.”

On behalf of this country, I think it’s appropriate to apologize to … muslims?

Evil is real. So is courage

From the dedication of the Flight 93 Memorial, President George W. Bush gave one of his finest speeches.

“At the moment American democracy was under attack our citizens defied their captors by holding a vote. The choice they made would cost them their lives. And they knew it. Many passengers called their loved ones to say good-bye. Then hung up to perform their final act.”

“The Flight 93 heroes led the first counter attack in the WAR ON TERROR.”

“Let’s Roll.”

OBL – Dead

“Four helicopters swooped in to the compound and the Navy Seals fought a close quarters gunbattle. They ordered bin Laden to surrender, but the 54-year-old who had vowed he would not be caught alive, refused.

Sources said standard procedure in a case like this would be for the Navy Seals to “double tap” bin Laden, shooting him twice in the head to make sure he was dead. His son, Khalid, was also killed in the raid.

At the conclusion of the firefight, bin Laden’s body was quickly taken away by U.S. forces for a DNA test to confirm his identity.

Bin Laden’s DNA was matched with that of one of his sisters who died in Boston and whose brain was kept by the United States. Then he was quickly buried at sea. “

Shopping at Sears

source: Free Republic

How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty?

By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up for active duty.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears at least once, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement and feedback it well deserves.

I decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it’s cheaper at that store.

This is their answer to my e-mail:

Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears.The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.

Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

Bill Thorn
Sears Customer Care

If you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping, drop by Sears . Or, if you’re like me and hate going to the mall, then buy something on Sears.com.

This is worthy.

Life imitates Peanuts

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Undercover agents in a sting operation stopped a Somali-born teenager from blowing up a van full of explosives at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in downtown Portland, federal authorities said.

The bomb was a dud supplied by the agents and the public was never in danger, authorities said.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested at 5:40 p.m. Friday just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would set off the blast but instead brought federal agents and police swooping down on him.

Yelling “Allahu Akbar!” – Arabic for “God is great!” – Mohamud tried to kick agents and police after he was taken into custody, according to prosecutors.

It’s jihad, Charlie Brown.

Epic Failure at DOJ

The Ghailani verdict is in.

The worst Administration in the history of the republic is served by the the most inept Department of Justice ever.

Liz Cheney, Debra Burlingame, and Bill Kristol, Directors of Keep America Safe had this to say

“Bad ideas have dangerous consequences. The Obama Administration recklessly insisted on a civilian trial for Ahmed Ghailani, and rolled the dice in a time of war. The Department of Justice says it’s pleased by the verdict. Ask the families of the victims if they’re pleased. And this result isn’t just embarrassing. It’s dangerous. It signals weakness in a time of war. The Ghailani trial was supposed to be a test case for future trials of 9/11 terrorists.

We urge the president: End this reckless experiment. Reverse course. Use the military commissions at Guantanamo that Congress has authorized. And, above all–accept the fact that we are at war.”

France declares WAR on alQaeda

from Breitbart:

PARIS (AP) – France has declared war on al-Qaida, and matched its fighting words with a first attack on a base camp of the terror network’s North African branch, after the terror network killed a French aid worker it took hostage in April.

The declaration and attack marked a shift in strategy for France, usually discrete about its behind-the-scenes battle against terrorism.

“We are at war with al-Qaida,” Prime Minister Francois Fillon said Tuesday, a day after President Nicolas Sarkozy announced the death of 78-year-old hostage Michel Germaneau.

President Sarkozy has his moments. Vive!

Traitor Adam Gadahn captured

Update (thanks n2l):  It’s not him

from NY Daily News, Helen Kennedy

Adam Gadahn, the treasonous Californian Al Qaeda leader who has long been on Washington’s Most Wanted list, was nabbed in Pakistan Sunday – a huge victory.

After some confusion in the intial reports, the Associated Press quoted Pakistani officials confirming the arrest.

Gadahn was bagged just hours after releasing a new internet video urging American Muslims to go on shooting sprees like Maj. Nidal Hasan’s at Fort Hood last year.

He is the first American to be charged with treason since World War II.

If convicted, he faces the death penalty.

Known in Al Qaeda videos as “Azzam the American” or Azzam al-Amereeki, Gadahn was born in Oregon to a Jewish family.

His hippie father converted to Christianity before his son was born, changing the family name from Pearlman to Gadahn.

Adam Gadhan was homeschooled in southern California. He converted to Islam at 17 and moved to Pakistan in 1998 at 20.

Intelligence officials say he joined up with al Qaeda after 9/11 and attended terrorist training camps in Afghanistan.

He became Osama bin Laden’s top propagandist, appearing in numerous internet videos calling for the destruction of America starting in 2004.

Charged with treason in 2006, he is believed to report directly to bin Laden’s right-hand man, Ayman al Zawahri.

Good news, and a nice win in the campaign against man-caused disasters.

Too bad this news got out so quickly, though.

I would have preferred a few weeks of intel gathering before the capture became public knowledge.  Now, if Holder’s DOJ has their way, we can expect the sumbich to lawyer up while he receives his Miranda rights, and the best legal defense that the public can afford.

TSA at Work: Michael Yon Arrested For Not Disclosing Income

From Hot Air.

Thank goodness our Homeland Security people are on the job after the EunuchBomber botched attack on Christmas Day.  We certainly don’t want to have independent war correspondents passing through our airports without revealing their annual income:

Got arrested at the Seattle airport for refusing to say how much money I make. (The uniformed ones say I was not “arrested”, but they definitely handcuffed me.) Their videos and audios should show that I was polite, but simply refused questions that had nothing to do with national security. Port authority police eventually came — they were professionals — and rescued me from the border bullies.

When they handcuffed me, I said that no country has ever treated me so badly. Not China. Not Vietnam. Not Afghanistan. Definitely not Singapore or India or Nepal or Germany, not Brunei, not Indonesia, or Malaysia, or Kuwait or Qatar or United Arab Emirates. No county has treated me with the disrespect can that can be expected from our border bullies.
