ALOHA, ALL!!! President Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan overnight. Why? With our brave military in the background as props, Obama announced some sort of agreement with the Afghan president. Why? Obama had TV cameras blazing, obviously filming his next campaign commercial. Why? Well he’s running for re-election isn’t he? Yes folks – this was nothing more than a photo op stunt for Obama’s 2012 campaign. He could have easily made this announcement from the Oval Office. So after he filmed his commercial he promptly flew away, leaving another suicide bombing in his wake. At least 7 people died and dozens were wounded The Taliban claimed responsibility. The same Taliban Obama seems to think has been devastated and nearly destroyed. The same Taliban he announced he was negotiating with during yesterday’s event. Nice work, Preezy.
This says it all (shaka to Lee)
FINAL THOUGHT: “We can see the light of a new day on the horizon. Our goal is to destroy al-Qaida, and we are on a path to do exactly that.” Barack Obama, May 1, 2012. Afghanistan. About an hour before the Taliban bombed the area in response to his visit. Note to Preezy: it appears the two terrorist groups talk to each other. Imagine that.

ALOHA, ALL! So how’s that new 0bama outreach and engagement of the enemy working out for us? In his infinite wisdom, Barry thought we just needed to show people who hate us and want to kill us that we want to talk to them. That we want to negotiate with them. That we want to be their friends. He is so wrong and over his head, and now the true picture of how he has endangered us is emerging. I give you this excellent analysis from the Heritage Foundation: How the Obama Doctrine Has Failed Key point: ”In the course of three years, President Obama has pursued a foreign policy that has left America less secure today and even more at risk tomorrow. A nuclear Iran, a failed Afghanistan and Iraq, an unfriendly Egypt, an Israel at risk, and an underfunded military are all serious concerns for the American people. Rather than continue pursuing the ill-advised Obama Doctrine, it is time for the President to put defending America first and appeasing our enemies last. That is a doctrine the American people can depend on.” #wecantwait
The perfect apology:

ALOHA, ALL!! Obama’s apology tour continues. This time he apologized to Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai for the “inadvertent” burning of Korans at a U.S. military base. Enough, already! Never mind that the Korans were likely being used by prisoners to communicate with one another. Never mind that we are at war. Never mind that Barry (again) is undermining our military. Meanwhile, a Christian minister will be put to death at any time in Iran and Barry doesn’t say a word. Are you ready to get this clown out of office in November???

Wanna hear some monumental spin? Check this out: Carney: Obama Didn’t Turn Down The Keystone Pipeline | RealClearPolitics ”White House press secretary Jay Carney first says Republicans “forced” President Obama to deny the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. Later in his press briefing, Carney says Obama didn’t turn down the pipeline.”
But here’s what really happened with the Keystone pipeline. How the Rockefeller Fund Killed Keystone | FrontPage Magazine ”Earlier this month the Canadian news channel Sun News uncovered a PowerPoint presentation by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund that lays bare its strategy of funding a host of environmental groups to thwart the Keystone XL pipeline as well as other development projects that the fund considered a “globally significant threat.”
BIG spin. Obama Speech On High Gas Prices Contained Five Major Whoppers About Energy – Investors.com ”The White House billed President Obama’s energy policy speech as a response to mounting criticism of record high gas prices. What he delivered was a grab bag of excuses and outright falsehoods.”
UPDATE on the Alaskan Island give-away: Alaskan Islands Belong to Russia? A Conversation with Joe Miller | Western Journalism.com ”The Agreement exists, signed by a U.S. Secretary of State James Baker in 1990 and ratified by Congress in June 1990, and signed by President G. H. W. Bush. Russia has not signed on, originally declaring that they would receive too little from it.” So what’s the deal with all this?? It appears that Russia can claim these islands – will 0bama let them? Stay tuned, folks!!
Here’s a great blog post from my good friend. The Story of Jim: A Modern Parable | The Lucy Emerson Blog ”A couple of months ago a dear friend of mine posted on his Facebook page his belief that a large (and growing) federal government has given us, as Americans, more freedom than the much smaller and limited one that we started with. This felt profoundly wrong to me…”
It’s Friday – we need a little humor! (Shaka to Ed):
A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator. At a morning press conference, the ever present Nancy Pelosi said she believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. She did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.
‘Al-Gebra is a problem for us,’ Vice President Biden said. ‘They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.’ They use secret code names like ‘X’ and ‘Y’ and refer to themselves as ‘unknowns,’ but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, ‘There are 3 sides to every triangle.’
When asked to comment on the arrest, President Obama said, ‘If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes.’ White House aides told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the President – It is believed that another Nobel Prize will follow.
Final Thought: “The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.” Barack 0bama in letter to Hamid Karzai

All the passengers who were on the helicopter that was shot down in Afghanistan are in our prayers. Some of our bravest – members of SEAL Team 6 – lost their lives. It appears they were on a rescue mission to help an Army Ranger unit that was under fire. Where’s the outrage from Barry? Where’s the response to being attacked? I won’t hold my breath……besides, he needed to head to Camp David for the weekend to play some golf. http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/afghanistan/2011-08-06-nato-helicopter-crash_n.htm
ALOHA, ALL! When I first heard that Anthony Weiner’s new wife was Muslim, it immediately struck me: She’s Muslim? He’s Jewish! Of course, marriages between people of different faiths happen all the time, but she is supposedly a very devout Muslim and marrying a non-Muslim is forbidden. In fact, such a marriage is invalid, according to Sharia law. What gives??? Here’s one theory: Did Weiner Secretly Convert to Islam to Marry a Muslim? It’s particularly interesting that the NY imam with ties to a Muslim Brotherhood group and Abdul Rauf (of the World Trade Center mosque fame) is encouraging Huma to stand by her Weiner (had to get at least one Weiner joke in.) And I’m sure you all know by now that Bill Clinton presided over the wedding ceremony – LOL! Weiner apologized to Clinton – Huh? For what?? Maybe that should have been a big red flag! I’m sure you’ve also heard that Huma has worked with Hillary for many years – lots of rumors circulating about that, too: Does Hillary Have a Lesbian Connection to Weinergate? Do I think these stories are true? Nothing surprises me anymore. Do I actually believe there’s a lot more we don’t know? Yep.

News from the “legitimate” war. Afghan nation-building programs not sustainable, report says – The Washington Post ”The hugely expensive U.S. attempt at nation-building in Afghanistan has had only limited success and may not survive an American withdrawal, according to the findings of a two-year congressional investigation to be released Wednesday. The report calls on the administration to rethink urgently its assistance programs as President Obama prepares to begin drawing down the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan this summer.” Hey Barry – this is YOUR war! You pilloried Bush on Iraq which has turned out to be more successful than Afghanistan. YOU FAIL!
More proof that Bill Ayers wrote Barry’s book: 4 curious errors in Obama’s ‘Dreams’ ”Those few critics on the left who have bothered to look at my book “Deconstructing Obama,” instinctively scoff at my thesis, namely that domestic terrorist Bill Ayers took over the book from a floundering Obama and put his own stamp on it……almost every time Obama makes a mistake, Ayers makes the same mistake (in his book). Yet, even when Ayers later corrects the error, he leaves clues as to his handiwork.”
