The United States Switched Sides in the War On Terror

That's what this article claims a report states, but the fact is Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Hillary and their ilk are on the same side they have always been on; that of the jhadists.


Is It Any Wonder Obummer Lets Putin Walk All Over Him

National Enquirer (so take it for what it's worth):

IN a major behind-the-scenes blowout, President BARACK OBAMA and first lady MICHELLE waged their worst White House fight ever over her lavish vacation trip to China!
Sources tell The ENQUIRER that Obama exploded when Mi­chelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Trea­sury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money.
Instead of postpon­ing her trip, a furious Michelle – still seeth­ing over the embarrassing “selfie” Barack recently snapped with a leggy blonde head of state – announced that she was taking her mother along for company.
She further declared that she didn’t want reporters covering her activities overseas.

“This was a blowout of epic proportions – probably the nasti­est White House fight they’ve ever had,” a Washington, D.C., insider told The ENQUIRER.
“They were both screaming at one another.
“The president was infuriated when advisers told him that they’d added up the costs of all their ‘vacations’ and China was putting them over the $150 million mark.
“But he’s defenseless to stop Michelle be­cause their marriage has collapsed. She’s doing what she wants – and that’s seeing the world on the American taxpayers’ dime.”
The embattled commander in chief flat-out begged his wife of 21 years to postpone the trip, according to a family insider.
“But she refused,” said the source.
“Then, when Barack asked why she had to take her mother along, Mi­chelle ripped into him. She screamed  that he was ‘lucky’ that she hadn’t left him after that embarrassing ‘selfie,’ and then she stormed off.”
Michelle arrived in Beijing with her mother, Marian Robinson, and the Obamas’ daughters, 15-year-old Malia and Sasha, 12, on March 20 for a planned seven-day, three-city trip.
They checked into the lavish presidential suite at the Beijing Wes­tin hotel, costing a whopping $8,350 per night. The 3,400-square-foot suite included 24-hour butler service and a steam room.
One published report quoted hotel employees grumbling about Michelle’s mom “barking at the staff ” and added that the first lady’s party was “inconveniencing pretty much everyone.”
And it quickly became clear that Michelle had apparently won the battle to avoid media scrutiny.
While she was scheduled to de­liver a speech to students at Peking University, “The Weekly Standard” reported that “she won’t be accompa­nied by the press” because “she does not plan to give interviews.”
As a result, the White House went into spin control, noted the D.C. insider.
“They’re defending Michelle’s trip by calling it ‘a people-to-people exchange’ and emphasizing ‘the im­portance that both nations place on education,’” said the source. “But the fact is Michelle specifically demanded that reporters not follow her every move.”
Media were granted access to only two of the 22 events on the first lady’s schedule, and sources say Michelle’s media ban hid her secret agenda to split from the president.
Besides being humiliated by the president’s “selfie” photo with the sexy Danish prime minister at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service last December, sources say Michelle was further outraged when she learned the Secret Service had been covering up the president’s cheating.
The first lady has already met with divorce lawyers and is planning a separate life after her husband leaves the White House.
“Obama’s advisers told him he must try and keep Michelle ‘under control’ until then,” divulged the D.C. insider.
“They explained that if Michelle walked out while he was still in office, the impact on his presiden­tial legacy would be catastrophic.”
And Michelle isn’t doing him any favors by traveling like a queen.
Besides the family’s annual Au­gust vacation on ritzy Martha’s Vineyard and Christmas holiday in Hawaii, Michelle jetted off to Mexico and Spain in 2010, and kicked up her heels at a posh ski resort in Vail, Colo., in 2011.
In March 2011, she spent five days in Latin America with her mother and daughters. Three months later, they were joined by Michelle’s niece and nephew for a safari in South Africa.
In June 2013, the first lady spent two days in Ireland. That trip re­quired booking 30 rooms at an exclusive hotel for her staff and security detail, costing taxpayers a reported $5 million.
According to one published re­port: “The president’s pricey travels have become so controversial that ‘Judicial Watch’ was forced to sue the Secret Service and Defense De­partment to get them to turn over records on the amount of taxpayer money used to fly the first family all over the world…”
But Michelle couldn’t care less, said the D.C. insider.
“It’s clear to everyone at the White House that Barack has completely lost control of his wife,” said the source.
“Michelle does whatever she wants and goes wherever she wants. It’s as if she’s tacked up a map of the world and put pins on all the places she wants to visit. The sad part is that taxpayers are paying for her bucket list.”


Need a Laugh?

He Will Grow Up To Be An 'Independent' Voter

Maybe a 'Man Purse' Would Be a Good Idea

Presidents Then and Now

Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation's history as any of the other 32 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.
The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence , Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an 'allowance' and later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.
After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.
When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, "You don't want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn't belong to me.. It belongs to the American people and it's not for sale."
Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, "I don't consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise."
As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.
Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, too many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale (ie. Illinois ).
Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, "My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there's hardly any difference!
We ought to have cloned him for telling it like it is and being frugal with our tax dollars!

Bundy vs BLM: The Big Picture


The Bundy Saga

The situation going on with the Bundy Ranch in Nevada vs the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) may become the modern day Boston Tea Party.

I hope it becomes and continues to be a rallying point for the American people to push back against an increasingly tyrannical Federal government which seems intent upon squashing States' rights and establishing complete control over every aspect of it's citizens lives.

The Federal government claims ownership over gigantic portions of land throughout the western States without any legitimate reason for doing so other than they can.

Unless by generally accepted public consensus for the need of preservation such as Yellowstone Park, or Mount Rushmore or the land has some  generally accepted unique value to needs of the nation, the Federal government has no ethical, moral, or truly legal right of ownership.

And its not just raw land being wasted and claimed by the Federal government; there are more than 77,000 empty or underutilized buildings the government claims ownership of, but does nothing with.

Uncle Sam has become like an arrogant lord with America his serfdom and elite politicians and bureaucrats his peerage.

Current news indicates the BLM has backed down and Rancher Bundy has prevailed.  I guarantee it is a mistake to think the situation is over.  Rancher Bundy will probably pay for his resistance with his life.  Read this story.


California History

Do you know what happened
164 years ago this summer....

September 9, 1850?
California became a state!
The people had no electricity.
The state had no money.
Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
There were gunfights in the streets.

So basically NOTHING has changed except,
then the women had real tits and the men didn't hold hands.

And that, my friends, is your history lesson for today.


The Wall

I across the following facts and statistics regarding Vietnam casualties and have seen similar iterations before, but what I have never seen, and would find interesting would be a breakdown of these casualties by family wealth and social status.

You see, the older and more cynical me suspects that the preponderance of those killed were from families who were in the lower income and influence levels of the time.  Beginning in the fifties, the more influential found ways to keep their sons either out of military service or at least out of forward infantry units or other hazardous positions.

During WWII and before the leaders of society led from the front in war and peace, not so after.

Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall
There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010.
The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 36 years since the last casualties.
The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Weymouth , Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965.
There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall.
39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger.
8,283 were just 19 years old.
The largest age group, 33,103 were 18 years old. 12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old.
5 soldiers on the Wall were 16 years old.
One soldier, PFC Dan Bullock was 15 years old.
997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam ..
1,448 soldiers were killed on their last day in Vietnam ..
31 sets of brothers are on the Wall.
Thirty one sets of parents lost two of their sons.
54 soldiers attended Thomas Edison High School in Philadelphia . I wonder why so many from one school.
8 Women are on the Wall. Nursing the wounded.
244 soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War; 153 of them are on the Wall.
Beallsville, Ohio with a population of 475 lost 6 of her sons.
West Virginia had the highest casualty rate per capita in the nation. There are 711 West Virginians on the Wall.
The Marines of Morenci - They led some of the scrappiest high school football an d basketball teams that the little Arizona copper town of Morenci (pop. 5,058) had ever known and cheered. They enjoyed roaring beer busts. In quieter moments, they rode horses along the Coronado Trail, stalked deer in the Apache National Forest. And in the patriotic camaraderie typical of Morenci's mining families, the nine graduates of Morenci High enlisted as a group in the Marine Corps. Their service began on Independence Day, 1966. Only 3 returned home.
The Buddies of Midvale - LeRoy Tafoya, Jimmy Martinez, Tom Gonzales were all boyhood friends and lived on three consecutive streets in Midvale, Utah on Fifth, Sixth and Seventh avenues. They lived only a few yards apart. They played ball at the adjacent sandlot ball field. And they all went to Vietnam. In a span of 16 dark days in late 1967, all three would be killed. LeRoy was killed on Wednesday, Nov. 22, the fourth anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. Jimmy died less than 24 hours later on Thanksgiving Day. Tom was shot dead assaulting the enemy on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
The most casualty deaths for a single day was on January 31, 1968 ~ 245 deaths.
The most casualty deaths for a single month was May 1968 - 2,415 casualties were incurred.
For most Americans who read this they will only see the numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we feel the pain that these numbers created. We are, until we too pass away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends, fathers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters. There are no noble wars, just noble warriors.


Speak Loudly and Carry a Little Stick......Oh wait

Detroit Counterfeiters

Detroit police have still not apprehended a master counterfeiter plaguing retailers whose employees cannot discern which bills are fake and which are real.

In fact, they don't know what discern means and neither do the police.


Nah, I Don't Think So

I can't stand Barry and Michelle, and I guess anything is possible regarding those two, but this is a little much.

BTW, I never really believed that Janet Reno was Chelsea Clinton's real father.
