My Dick

Posted by ginnypub on May 21, 2009

I’ve listed previously why I love Dick Cheney. I love him even more after today. When the Fearful Leader of the Free World was so intimidated by Dick Cheney’s scheduled speech at the AEI, he grabbed his teleprompter and headed for a camera, it was more glaring proof the U.S. voted in a juvenile to do a man’s job.

Remember The Holocaust?

Posted by ginnypub on May 21, 2009

I received this email from a Texas cousin. Wonder if any of these images will pass through Barry Soetoro’s mind when he sits down for chat with the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran?

DID THE HOLOCAUST HAPPEN?

Of course it did. And it’s happening now in places like Zimbabwe , Sudan , North Korea , and terrorists in Pakistan want it to happen here in the USA .

 Never forget what one madman can do when given absolute power….

It ‘s a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect: ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the track of history some b*stard will get up and say that this never happened’

These photos were taken in  Germany  by James Emison Chanslor, an Army Master Sergeant who served in World War II from 1942 until 1945.

‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing’ 
Edmund Burke 

This week, the  UK  removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offended’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. 

This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.

 It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in  Europe  ended. 

This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 
six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russian peoples looking the other way!
Now, more than ever, with  Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

I don’t think the world has forgotten. It just stopped caring. I wonder if it ever cared? Maybe it is like more recent history. Some folks don’t think 9/11/01 was such a big deal.

BiBi and Barry

Posted by ginnypub on May 17, 2009

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is coming to Amerika today. He’ll be meeting with U.S. President Barry Soetoro. According to “diplomatic officials”, they are hoping to establish “trust and confidence in one another”. (That is a very difficult line to type when you’re holding your side to keep it from splitting and tears are streaming down your face).

I can see the meeting now:

BiBi: Ahmadenijad denies the Holocaust and wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

Barry, reading from TOTUS:  I have heard that. Let me assure you and the so-called nation of Israel that I plan to have a meaningful conversation with Pres. Ahmadinejad of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

BiBi: Hamas is lobbing bombs into Israel and blowing themselves up on school buses and in stores and restaurants.

Barry, reading from TOTUS:  I have heard that. Let me assure you and the so-called nation of Israel that I plan to have a meaningful conversation with Khaled Meshal, leader of the Hamas Freedom Fighters about allowing all you Jews to live in the Islamic Republic of Palestine. I call it the Two State Solution.

BiBi: .Embecile נכונים. הוא מהווה Sarkozy and Merkel

Barry the Risée

Posted by ginnypub on May 2, 2009

Dr. Jack Wheeler sat down with a French Military Intelligence Officer in Paris. They talked about U.S. President, Barry Soetoro.

“My agency considers him a joke,” he confides.  “Every day there is some fresh lunacy that we cannot believe.  Mr. Bush would often make us angry.  But at this man we just laugh.”

“In truth, it also makes us sad,” he continued.  “French resentment towards America is strong, so being able to laugh at your country feels good.  But it is such a sad and strange thing to see America – America The Great! – do something so crazy as to elect this ridiculous man.”

“There are many people in America who think he isn’t a legitimate president as he wasn’t born in the US and isn’t a natural citizen.  What do you think?” I asked.

He shrugged.  “I wouldn’t know.  I’ve never had reason to make an inquiry.”

“There are a lot of people convinced he is a traitor who hates America and is actively determined to destroy it.  Any opinion on that?”

He didn’t shrug at this.  After a long slow sip of wine, he mused, “I would not go that far.  Many of his actions, however, are very puzzling because they are so counter-productive regarding America’s best interests.  There seems to be a consistent pattern in that direction.”

“What does Sarkozy think of him?”

“Nothing but contempt.”

After a pause he asked, “And Langley?”

“Well, if you thought the war they waged against Bush was intense, it was nothing compared to how they’re going to screw Obama.  He has tried to gut them with the ‘torture memo’ release and slashing their budgets.  The morale is depressed, sullen, and enraged.  You know what a left-wing outfit Langley is.  They thought he was their boy and they feel betrayed.  All kinds of damaging stuff on him will be appearing via their media friends.”

He nodded.  “And in Tel Aviv City?”

He was referring to the huge underground city complex of Langley’s underneath the US Embassy in the Israeli capital.  “That’s an interesting question.  You know how vast and deep the relationship is there.  Langley is making every effort to overcome the total and massive distrust their Israeli colleagues have for Obama, whom they know is selling them down the Jordan River.  So far though this effort is in words.  The Israelis are waiting to see what Langley does.”

He said nothing.  I smiled.  “You guys wouldn’t be Langley’s cutout for thwarting BO regarding Israel, would you?  I’d never suspect that…”

He continued to say nothing, gave me only a slight smile in return, and poured me another glass of wine.  “The Bordeaux is good, yes?”  I nodded.

“You know, the French media worships this man the same as yours in the US.  All of this ‘100 days’ talk, it is impossibly stupid.  Most anyone in the French elite, the business leaders, Sarko’s people, they all know this.  They all think this is some crazy joke of the Americans.  But it is a very, very dangerous joke.  For 100 days your president has been a laughingstock among the tout le monde  No one may be laughing 100 days or 10 months from now.”

He leaned forward.  “The world can go – how do you say – sideways with this man very quickly.  No one he has working for him knows what they are doing – possibly excepting Mrs. Clinton – and he certainly does not.  All of us in our little community are worried – us, our friends in Berlin, London, Tel Aviv, and Langley too as you say.  It is not like the  barbarians at the gates.  It is everythere are no gates.  The Somalis, Chavez, Iran, Putin, Beijing, the ‘Norks” as you call them, the list is long and it is growing.  We are not sure what to do.”

It took me a moment to respond.  “The best thing that has happened now is Obama making Langley his enemy.  They will be cooperating with you more, be more a part of your worried community.  Working together, you can undermine his efforts more effectively, block and maybe even repair the damage.”

It was my turn to lean forward.  “Then again, all together you could be more pro-active.  The man is a mystery.  Nobody can make public his actual birth certificate, or even the particular hospital he was born in, or his college grades, or how he got into Harvard, or how he made editor of the Harvard Law Review and never wrote a single article for it.  It goes on and on.  He really is a Zero.  I think all of you guys should find all of this out and make it known.”

I added, “The quicker the better, before the laughing stops and the real dangers begin.”

“What is that phrase you use?” he asked.  “Something to consider?”

I laughed.  “Yes, there is much to consider – and much that you can do.  I mean, really, if the Soviet Union could be dismantled, so can this presidency.”

It was a beautiful April afternoon in Paris.  He walked me back to my hotel.  It could be that the times we live in may get even more interesting.

Calling Patrick Fitzgerald

Posted by ginnypub on May 1, 2009

Who “outed” 2 covert CIA operatives to the All Barry Channel?

Wait, that’s not the scandal. The scandal is these guys earned A THOUSAND DOLLARS A DAY! (Gross underpayment, if you ask me.) AND they were INEXPERIENCED! (Except for the U.S. military program to train pilots how to survive behind enemy lines and resist brutal tactics- but who cares?) AND they are responsible for the WATERBOARDING PROGRAM and EVERYONE knows WATERBOARDING IS TORTURE and the U.S. should NEVER TORTURE mass serial killers for information! (Waterboarding is way too tame, for my taste.) AND (by far the WORST scandal) REFUSED to break the terms of their respective CIA contracts and reveal to ABC classified information! (My God, could it be any worse?!)

I say, call Patrick Fitzgerald immediately. These 2 patriot warriors need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of whatever the living, breathing U.S. Constitution can be amended to call for! Good Lord, what will Cuba and Venezuela think about all this? We have to think about our reputation in parts of the world where it truly matters!

Next, Special Investigator Fitzgerald should completely overlook the individual responsible for the “outing”, go straight to 1600  Pennsylvania Avenue and indict Karl Ro…I mean, someone, anyone in the White House. And make sure it’s a Jew. Any Jew’ll do.

September 10, 2001

Posted by ginnypub on March 24, 2009

On November 20, 2008, 52.9% of the American electorate voted like it was September 10, 2001.

Here’s a reminder of why that was a mistake.

Happy Norouz!

Posted by ginnypub on March 20, 2009

It’s that time of year again!

The U.S. Congress is considering a first-of-its kind resolution that congratulates Iranians and Iranian-Americans on the Norouz holiday.

Representative Mike Honda (Democrat-California), who represents voters in a northern California district, authored the resolution, which reads: “[To recognize] the cultural and historical significance of Norouz, expressing appreciation to Iranian Americans for their contributions to society, and wishing Iranian Americans and the people of Iran a prosperous new year.”

Good News Here from the National Iranian American Council (An Iranian American Voice in Washington, D.C.)!

Washington DC – Transcripts of National Iranian American Council and the New America Foundation’s conference on US-Iran relations on February 14, 2007 on Capitol Hill are now available online. The conference, titled “US-Iran relations: collision, stand-off, or convergence?” featured numerous high-power speakers, including Professor Francis Fukuyama, Congresswoman Jane Harman, Colonel Larry Wilkerson, Colin Powell’s Chief of Staff, Flynt Leverett of the New America Foundation, Bruno Pellaud, former deputy chief of safe guards at the IAEA, Daniel Levy, former advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, and Trita Parsi, President of NIAC. The conference tackled several aspects of the ongoing US-Iran debate, including the imperative of reducing US-Iran tensions in order to aid Iran’s internal pro-democracy forces, the superiority of inspections versus suspension as a non-proliferation tool, and previously undisclosed details about the May 2003 Iranian negotiation offer to the US.

 

The conference, part of NIAC’s US-Iran Policy Program, was sponsored by the Colombe Foundation, Kenbe Foundation, Open Society Institute, Ploughshares Fund, and Pluralism Fund. Through the US-Iran Policy Program, NIAC will hold two such conferences on Capitol Hill per year, in addition to several Congressional Breakfasts and Staff briefings.

The World’s Most Dangerous City

Posted by ginnypub on March 19, 2009

Those of us who have followed the blogs from Iraq written by Iraqis and members of the U.S. Armed Forces were not surprised by Charlie Gibson’s recent report on Iraq.

iraqisfeelsafe

What was STUNNING, however, was to see it reported from one of the alphabet networks. The evening news anchors have been a self-appointed panel of  judges and assassins of Pres. George W. Bush’s character, judgement and competence  for the past 7 years.

“Is this a war about oil?” “Where is U.N. approval?” “Is Iraq a quagmire?” “Does Pres. Bush get it?” “Is the surge a failure?” “Is hope for democracy dead in Iraq?”

Night after night, they beat the man down until his popularity hit rock bottom and truth was lost in a Hegelian blur.

The majority of Iraqis did not share the sentiments of the alphabet anchors.

Any hint of journalistic integrity evaporated when the alphabet anchors became the self-appointed press corps for presidential candidate Sen. Barry Soetoro (D-IL). He had won his first election in Chicago by having his opponets removed from the ballot on a “technicality”. Not only did his personal press corps not assassinate his character, they never even questioned it. He has a long-standing personal relationship with domestic terrorists. Not only did his personal press corps not assassinate his judgement, they never even questioned it. He condemned the Bush/Petraeus “surge” strategy in Iraq as a “complete failure” and called for surrender and defeat. Not only did his personal press corps not assassinate his competence, they never even questioned it.

While Iraqis celebrated their new freedom born out of the democracy fertilized with the blood of Americans, Iraqis and their allies, the alphabet anchors celebrated a new “visionary”. “Intelligent”, “Curious”, “Honest”-they proclaimed of this community organizer from Chicago; this mystery man with no medical records, no academic records and no birth records; this man calling himself Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.; this man who was known as Barry Soetoro on a school report card.

Barry Soetoro was sworn in 44th President of the United States of America on 20Jan09. He selected George Mitchell as Envoy to the Middle East.

But turning to Iraq, Mitchell first suggested that W’s decision on troop levels in Iraq will be driven not by the national security interests of the United States but by pure politics, stating: “I don’t think they [the Bush administration] can go into the next general election in the United States in November of 2006 with the status quo so I think you’re going to see significant troop withdrawals.” George Mitchell, Today Show

Suppose Barry Soetoro had been in office as the 43rd president. How might conditions be different in the Middle East today? How much strength and power would al-Qaeda, Saddam Hussein and Usama bin Laden have over the region?

Let’s go back in time to another century, another decade, when the same players and the same policies were in control. It really wasn’t that long ago.

In December 1992, U.S. President George H.W. Bush announced that the United States would provide the backbone of a multinational military force to secure supply lines and deliver food to the starving in Somalia. “America must act,” Bush said.

Pres. William Clinton was inaugurated on 20Jan93.

Pres. Clinton’s plan was for a “lasting solution” in Somalia. His administration would carry out this lasting solution by expanding the mandate of U.N. involvement. U.N. Resolution 814 was passed. With almost no planning, the U.N. Security Council broadened the peacekeepers’ mandate from securing relief operations to “the rehabilitation of the political institutions and economy of Somalia.” On 03Oct93, Maj. Gen. William F. Garrison decided that a good idea for a Special Ops mission would be to send a small force into a hornet’s nest of supporters of Warlord Gen. Mohamed Farah Aideed’s Somali National Alliance in the Bakara Market area of Mogadishu in BROAD DAYLIGHT to capture guerilla loyalists of Aideed.

The Clinton administration strongly supported this more aggressive stance. Madeleine Albright, then the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the goal was “nothing less than the restoration of an entire country.” Most of the U.S. Military personnel were withdrawn.

 

  

 

On 03Oct93, members of the U.S. military faced forces linked to Usama bin Laden’s al Qaeda terrorist organization  for the first time. They were outnumbered 10 to 1.

The U.S. was defeated. America lost 19 warriors and 2 Blackhawks. Something equally as precious as those lives was lost on that day, too.

“Where was this false courage of yours when the explosion in Beirut took place in 1983? And where was this courage of yours when two explosions made you leave Aden in less than twenty-four hours! But your most disgraceful case was in Somalia; where – after vigorous propaganda about the power of the United States and its post-cold war leadership of the new world order – you moved tens of thousands of an international force, including 28,000 American soldiers, into Somalia. However, when tens of your soldiers were killed in minor battles and one American pilot was dragged in the streets of Mogadishu you left the area carrying disappointment, humiliation, defeat and your dead with you…. You have been disgraced by Allah and you withdrew. The extent of your impotence and weakness became very clear.”  Usama bin Laden

What has become of Mogadishu, Somalia and its people?

Mogadishu has been wracked with internal unrest ever since. The city received renewed international attention when the Islamic Courts Union claimed control over the city, only to be pushed back by Ethiopian forces. Today, while nominally governed by the UN-sanctioned Transitional Federal Government and policed by forces from the African Union, Mogadshu remains the scene of running gun battles between rival militias and tribal factions, as well as Islamic insurgents seeking to eject AU forces.  Over a million of the city’s residents have reportedly been displaced, with tens of thousands fleeing the “city of death” altogether.

Today, Mogadishu, Somalia is the most dangerous city in the world.

And every year since 1993, Somalis have celebrated “The Day of the Rangers” on October 3rd, the day America was defeated.

Terrorism-Just Say NO

Posted by ginnypub on March 17, 2009

At last we have an actual homeland security policy in place. Janet Napolitano is President Soetoro’s new Homeland Security Secretary. Der Amerikanisch lesben announced it in an interview with Germany’s Der Spiegel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.

SPIEGEL: When you were Arizona’s governor, illegal immigration was an important issue for you. Your comment on the idea of a border fence was, “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.” Europe hasn’t found an answer to illegal immigration. What can Americans and Europeans learn from each other?

Napolitano: That you have to be pragmatic. You have to avoid over-simplification from the far right and from the far left. Ultimately, you need to deal with the underlying immigration law and a reasonable immigration policy. At some point, when the time is appropriate, our president and congress will re-engage on the underlying immigration law. Right now, my task is to make smart enforcement decisions on the law that we have.

SPIEGEL: Europe has a problem with just such people, young Muslims who grew up in the West and are still susceptible to radical messages. The terrorists responsible for the July 2005 attacks in London are an example.

Napolitano: In some ways, the problem in Europe is greater than in the United States. But the questions are the same. How do you identify a youth who is susceptible to becoming radicalized? How do you work with that youth, his family and community to give them alternatives to radicalization?

SPIEGEL: Would you characterize such social measures as a task of your agency?

Napolitano: Yes. In fact, we have group within my agency, the civil liberties group, and they have a focus right now on that issue.
