Hump Day Report: Spinning Out of Control

Shaka to Scott for the photo

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???    Obama apologizes for Koran burning incident in Afghanistan « Hot Air

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):

Teacher Arrested

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


Hump Day Report: WWWD


It’s fitting to honor George Washington, the Father of Our Country, today.  He was an extraordinary individual (and my favorite President.)   To realize the sacrifices and incredible leader he was, one needs to put into perspective the times in which he lived.  Washington could have lived his life very comfortably under British rule.  He was a wealthy man (gee….a 1 percenter??)  with a beautiful home and lots of land.  But his country needed him and he stepped forward.  This video from Dick Morris explains how Washington was a true hero and leader, not just in ways we commonly know:  

And this article from The Heritage Foundation explains why it’s ridiculous that we no longer celebrate Washington’s Birthday as a singular holiday:  George Washington and the Real Meaning of Presidents Day  “George Washington, the “indispensable man” of the Revolution who was rightly extolled for being “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen,” has now been lumped together with the likes of James Buchanan, Jimmy Carter, Franklin Pierce and John Tyler.”

God bless you, President Washington!  Your beloved country is going through a rough spot right now.  We’ll do our best to set it right again.

Washington would not approve.  Democrat Blocks Rand Paul’s Attempt to Cut Aid to Egypt Because of Its ‘Insolence and Disregard’ | CNSNews.com  “A senior Democratic senator Thursday shot down an attempt by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to call up an amendment cutting off all U.S. aid to Egypt unless the authorities allow Americans being detained there to leave the country.”  (Hint:  the “senior Democratic senator” is from CA and has the initials “B.B.”  she should be added to the picture above.)

ICYMI:  House votes to expand drilling, approve Keystone XL – Common American Journal  “House lawmakers on Thursday approved a plan to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline and expand drilling offshore and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The 237-187 victory for Republican leaders…”

Connecticut??  Taxpayers Paying For Illegal Immigrants in Connecticut  “Generally when you think of illegal immigrants you tend to think of the southern states from Florida across to California. One of the last states you may think of as having a problem with illegal immigrants is Connecticut, but guess again.”

Well, well, well!!  Obama Contradicted: HHS Banned Determining Whether Mandate Was ‘Cost Effective’ | CNSNews.com  “There would be no consideration of cost effectiveness. That was the explicit condition that the Department of Health and Human Services imposed on the panel of health-care experts it commissioned to develop the “preventive services” mandate that will require virtually all health-insurance plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and contraceptives—including those that cause abortions.”

Then there’s this:  As Obama pushes new regulations, UK eyes privatizing its health care – Common American Journal  “Filmmaker Michael Moore glorified the United Kingdom’s National Health Service in his 2007 documentary ”Sicko,” making a cult film argument that socialized medicine works. But Prime Minister David Cameron, the Tory MP who heads a coalition government in England, is apparently not a Moore fan: He is working to partially privatize the NHS, beginning a massive outsourcing of medical services to private health care providers throughout the U.K.”

Looking forward to this one!    Check out the comments from the OWS…yeah, these miscreants represent 99% of the country.

One more video in honor of President’s Day – did you know Richard Pryor played the first Black President over 30 years ago?????  (Shaka to Trisha)  

Final Thought:  “The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country” – George Washington, General Order, 9 July 1776


Remember…WWWD?  (What Would Washington Do?)
