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.

Constitutional “Suggestions”-Napolitano

Posted by ginnypub on April 21, 2009

Secretary of The Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, is interviewed on Larry King.

KING: Another — in that same report was this line here, on the threat of extremism at home. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
The Democratic chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee has taken offense with that language. He says, well, wait a minute, are you singling people out just for their political views? Because we are having a conversation that is based on this gift of free speech. So if I’m an anarchist, if I oppose abortion — there are many things that I could believe or anyone out there could believe that you would find horrible. I’m allowed to think it, I’m allowed to say it, as long as I do anything wrong…

NAPOLITANO: Absolutely.

KING: Who are these groups? Do you have active investigations of anti-immigration groups or anti-abortion groups, you believe that they are preparing to conduct terrorist attacks?

NAPOLITANO: Well, without going into ongoing work, let’s just point out to history. And we’ll take the abortion, for example. Of course, people have different points of view about abortion. The last thing the Department of Homeland Security is about is infringing on anybody’s constitutionally protected rights. On the other hand, at the very edge of the debate, at the very edge are the extremist groups that have committed violent crimes. They’ve committed bombings and the like.
And that is where you cross from constitutionally protected free speech, freedom of assembly, all the rights we cherish, into homeland security and law enforcement. When is that right not being exercised, it’s being abused…

KING: The administration has said it would like to move ahead on comprehensive immigration reform. That it would include some legal status for the millions who are in the United States illegally.
We went down to your state recently to explore this issue. And a man you’re very familiar with, the Maricopa County sheriff, Joe Arpaio, we asked him, because of all the controversy about him rounding up illegal immigrants and some people aren’t illegal immigrants, we asked him if he had a message for you and for the president of the United States.

And this is what he said.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO, MARICOPA COUNTRY, ARIZONA: I want the president, I want the politicians to say, we are going to enforce all of the illegal immigration laws and if you come into this country illegally, you’re going to be prosecuted and put in jail.
Let them say that. I’m waiting for them to say that.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

KING: A lot of Democrats in Congress want to you investigate him. They think he is over the line. He says he is just enforcing the law and the problem is the federal government.

NAPOLITANO: Well, you know, Sheriff Joe, he is being very political in that statement, because he knows that there aren’t enough law enforcement officers, courtrooms or jail cells in the world to do what he is saying.
What we have to do is target the real evil-doers in this business, the employers who consistently hire illegal labor, the human traffickers who are exploiting human misery.
And yes, when we find illegal workers, yes, appropriate action, some of which is criminal, most of that is civil, because crossing the border is not a crime per se. It is civil. But anyway, going after those as well.

NOTE TO JANET NAPOLITANO:

The Constitution of the United States of America is NOT a group of  “suggestions” lumped together into a document.

Our Message to the World

Posted by ginnypub on April 4, 2009

For 8 years, if Pres. Bush sneezed there was a chorus of, “What kind of message are we sending to the world?” “This administration has damaged the image of the U.S. around the world!”

Candidate for president Barry Soetoro promised to “reboot America’s image” among the world’s Muslims and that one of his top priorities would be to work to repair America’s reputation worldwide. In that vain, he granted his first interviewas leader of the free world to al-Arabiya where he apologized profusely for the U.S. being responsible for Islamic serial mass murderers incinerating a few thousand Infidels on U.S. soil.

It was especially poignant when a sitting president of the United States of America met Saudi Arabia’s King and bowed in deference to his “majesty“.

After the U.S. elected its first black president, the first black U.S. Attorney General and former Fannie Mae lobbyist, Eric Holder, said publicly, “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we — I believe continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation of cowards.”

Brazil’s President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva heard you Mr. Holder.  Speaking in Brasília at a joint press conference with Gordon Brown, the UK prime minister, Mr Lula da Silva told reporters: “This crisis was caused by the irrational behaviour of white people with blue eyes, who before the crisis appeared to know everything and now demonstrate that they know nothing.” This, of course, was music to Race Separatist in Chief, Barry Obama, who couldn’t wait to drool all over him. During a lunch at the Group of 20 summit in London, Obama shook hands with President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and said: “This is my man, right here. I love this guy.” I can hardly wait for Barry’s next book.

Then, there’s our neighbor to the south, Mexico, where a bloody drug war is happening and spilling across the border into the U.S., which wouldn’t have started in the first place if the drug lords didn’t receive 90% of their firearms from the U.S. It isn’t relevant that this figure is a bold-faced LIE made up of whole cloth from the Soetoro administration. What is relevant is that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is merely a “suggestion” and should be overturned.

The icing on the cake is probably yet to come, but Barry’s speech to a group of students from France and Germany comes close.  “In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. “Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”

Now, that’s a statement from someone who is a world’s authority on arrogance, dismissiveness and derision

So what is the message Pres. Barry Soetoro is sending to the world?

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS A LOUSY COUNTRY, FULL OF LOUSY PEOPLE.

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.

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.

Southern Border Fighting

Posted by ginnypub on March 13, 2009

In the first 3 months of 2009, 1000 people have been murdered just across the southern border of the U.S.A. in Mexico. In 2008, almost 6000 people were murdered. Drug and human smugglers are armed to the hilt with everything from RGPs to machetes. Their fire power is so great, that last November, Mexican police officers who were pinned down in a raging gun battle, issued an urgent plea for help to the Arizona State Police. Law enforcement and military personnel, as well as innocent men, women and children are being  kidnapped, tortured, beheaded, shot and slaughtered in this ongoing bloodbath.

This war has spilled over into the U.S.A.  Execution style murders, violent home invasions, and a spiraling kidnap rate in Phoenix – where police reported an average of one abduction a day last year linked to Mexican crime – are not the only examples along the border. Phoenix, AZ is now the kidnap capital of the world.

Arizona residents are fighting. Lawmakers in Arizona heard testimony on border violence last week from police and prosecutors, who are seeking more robust measures to seize smugglers’ assets, as well as cracking down harder on gunrunning to Mexico. “Sheriff Joe” Arpaio in Maricopa County has arrested 16,000 illegal aliens over the past 18 months. Of those, 70% are charged with felony crimes, including forgery, kidnapping, aggravated assault, DUI, narcotics, robbery, murder and theft. Not surprisingly, crime has been reduced in the valley.

President Barry Soetoro is taking action, also.

“We’re going to examine whether and if National Guard deployments would make sense and under what circumstances they would make sense,” Obama said during an interview with journalists for regional papers, including a McClatchy reporter.

“I don’t have a particular tipping point in mind,” he said. “I think it’s unacceptable if you’ve got drug gangs crossing our borders and killing U.S. citizens.”

Obama was cautious, however. “We’ve got a very big border with Mexico,” he said. “I’m not interested in militarizing the border.”

Our expectation is to have a comprehensive policy in place in the next few months.”

Vice President Joe Biden has appointed Maricopa County supervisor Donald T. Stapley, Jr. to a task force to oversee implementation of the “Economic Recovery Act”. Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and Sheriff Joe sent him a thank you letter:

stapleyanotherbarrycrook

Democrat congressional leaders have been even more aggressive in this fight. Ethically-challenged John Conyers, open-border advocates Jerrold Nadler and Zoe Lofgrens and social-justice engineer Robert Scott have teamed up with the militant arm of the democrat party, ACORN, have demanded that the U.S. Department of Justice launch a full-scale investigation into —-SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO.

In a letter dated March 10, 2009, Loretta Smith, acting assistant attorney general at the DOJ, detailed what her department would be investigating:

“This is to inform you that the United States Department of Justice is commencing an investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (”MCSO”) pursuant to the pattern or practice provisions of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994,42 U.S.C. §14141 (“Section 14141”) and the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968,42 U.S.C. § 3789d (“Safe Streets Act”), and pursuant to the prohibitions against national origin discrimination in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,42 U.S.C. §§ 2000d to 2000d-7 (“Title Yr’) and the Safe Streets Act, 42 U.S.C. § 3789d(c).”

“The investigation will focus on alleged patterns or practices of discriminatory police practices and unconstitutional searches and seizures conducted by the MCSO, and on allegations of national origin discrimination, including failure to provide meaningful access to MCSO services for limited English proficient (LEP) individuals.”

CHANGE….

Megalomaniac And The Heroes

Posted by ginnypub on March 2, 2009

Megalomaniac-in-Chief, Barry Soetoro, delivered “his” plan for Iraq withdrawal to the Warrior Heroes stationed at Camp LeJeune, NC last week. In actuality, “Barry’s Plan” has already been crafted. It’s called SOFA. The Iraqi and Bush administrations crafted it and Barry didn’t have a damned thing to do with it.

“As a candidate for president, I made clear my support for a timeline of 16 months to carry out this drawdown, while pledging to consult closely with our military commanders upon taking office to ensure that we preserve the gains we’ve made and protect our troops,” Obama said. “Those consultations are now complete, and I have chosen a timeline that will remove our combat brigades over the next 18 months. “Let me say this as plainly as I can: By Aug. 31, 2010, our combat mission in Iraq will end.”

 

troopshatebarry

It looks like some in the audience remembered that the only reason he traveled to Iraq was to demand Iraqi leaders delay a SOFA agreement until after Pres. Bush was out of office.

traitorandpatriot

Maybe some in the audience are questioning the judgement of a Commander in Chief candidate who voted against funding troops on the battlefield because the U.S. did not surrender first.

Maybe some are remembering that Barry Soetoro’s timeline for Iraq withdrawal changed with each public opinion poll.

Maybe some are remembering that Barry’s nominee for U.S. Solicitor General fights to keep the ROTC off college campuses, but is happy to give a scholarship to anti-American Pakistani student Samad Khurram.

elenakaganhatesmilitaryantiamericansamadkhurram

All of them were trying to swallow the bile that wanted to projectile-vomit out of their collective mouths onto the face of the lying rat bastard standing before them who had the unmitigated audacity to claim the Petraeus/Crocker/Bush Strategy was HIS idea.

FYI, Barry…It’s called the Anaconda Strategy.

YEAH, BIBI!! (Updated)

Posted by ginnypub on February 20, 2009

**Bumped up for update** (Below the snip)

The Likud Party is BAAACK and strong! Tuesday’s primaries in Israel bring in Moshe Feiglin, Benny Begin, and Moshe Ayalon, among others. Of course the watered-down to milquetoast, Kadima Party is having a hissy fit. Prime Minister Ehud (maybe if we give islamo-fascists the rest of Israel’s land, they’ll stop killing our children) Olmert said,  “If Bibi, Begin, Ya’alon and Feiglin come to power, it will cause significant diplomatic damage to Israel.” Uh-huh, that’s the POINT, Ehud, or as I like to call you, the head of the John McCain wing of the Kadima/Likuds. You keep giving terrorists land and getting dead Israeli children in return. It’s WAY past time for “significant diplomatic damage”!

(snip)

 

UPDATE:

From the Jerusalum Post:

After the failure of his last-ditch effort to muster Kadima leader Tzipi Livni’s support for a unity government on Friday, President Shimon Peres formally entrusted Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu with the task of building a coalition.

Earlier, after emerging from a meeting with Peres, Livni announced that she had no intention of joining a broad coalition under Netanyahu, despite the Likud chairman’s assertion that he was willing to “go to great lengths” in order to induce Kadima to join his government.

“It appears that the coalition which has been formed in recent days lacks diplomatic vision,” Livni said after the meeting. The Kadima leader rejected the president’s plea that she reconsider joining a coalition comprised of the three largest parties – Kadima, Likud and Israeli Beiteinu – and asserted that a “broad coalition is worthless if it is not governed by values.”

Peres realizes the need for strength at this time in history. Since Barry Soetoro and his Brown Shirts have decided to “stand with” the enemies of Israel and the U.S., the “the political winds” have shifted “in an ugly direction“.

Shabtai Shavit, former chief of the Mossad intelligence agency, warned just 2 days ago: “I don’t believe there is a political solution which can be achieved through negotiations with Iran. My concern is that until Obama finishes his learning curve of the subject, the Iranians are going to have maybe the first or even more nuclear bombs.”

NYT, one day ago:

In their first appraisal of Iran’s nuclear program since President Obama took office, atomic inspectors have found that Iran recently understated by a third how much uranium it has enriched, United Nations officials said Thursday.

The officials also declared for the first time that the amount of uranium that Tehran had now amassed — more than a ton — was sufficient, with added purification, to make an atom bomb.

YEAH, BIBI!! NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON!
