ALOHA, ALL!! You think your leaders are looking out for the security of this country? If so, you must be living on the moon. Monday, I had a glimmer of respect for Senator Diane Feinstein. It seemed as if she was taking her role as Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee seriously and was truly interested in getting to the bottom of the recent security leaks. Feinstein actually said that someone in Obama’s White House was leaking information: Someone From The White House Is Leaking National Security Secrets That Coincidentally Make Obama Look Good Tuesday, Feinstein didn’t show up for several meetings that she was scheduled to attend and instead issued a written statement: “I stated that I did not believe the president leaked classified information,” Feinstein said in the statement on Tuesday. “I shouldn’t have speculated beyond that, because the fact of the matter is I don’t know the source of the leaks.” Silly me for thinking for one second that a political hack and insider like Feinstein would actually do the right thing. So much for doing what’s right – Barry’s minions must have given her an offer she couldn’t refuse and she took it.
UPDATE: Then there’s this – CIA: Did You Mean These Documents? “The Department of Justice had to file a motion admitting that the CIA had found numerous documents that should have been released in a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch about White House interaction with filmmakers producing a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden…This relates directly to the issue around which Feinstein danced yesterday, which is the intentional leaking of national-security information to burnish the reputation of Barack Obama.” Apparently the documents were “overlooked.” A big, 4-5″ thick pile of documents.
I’m also peeved at some Republicans. You may have heard about the flack Michele Bachmann received for warning about people in the administration with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Congresswoman Bachmann has called out Keith Ellison as well as Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff for Hillary Clinton (Ms. Abedin is also married to disgraced former NY congressman Anthony Weiner.) Ellison is trying to hide his ties to CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood front groups, but the record speaks for itself: Keith Ellison Re-Writes History on His CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood Ties As for Huma Abedin, she does have immediate family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood: Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood – Closely Connected and National Security, The Muslim Brotherhood, and Clinton’s Top Aide and Yes, Who Huma Is Matters – A Lot “As 1993 World Trade Center bombing prosecutor Andrew McCarthy notes in National Review, “The ties of Ms. Abedin’s father, mother, and brother to the Muslim Brotherhood are both specific and substantiated.” Let’s look at some of Michele Bachmann’s (unanswered) concerns, posted at Michele Bachmann Smells Something Foul:
- Why did the State Department not only allow a member of an Egyptian terrorist group a visa to enter the country (against the law) but then allowed that individual to meet with national security officials at the White House?
- Why does the State Department continue to interact regularly with known Muslim Brotherhood “front” groups?
- Why has the Obama administration, according to the White House Director for Community Partnerships, had hundreds of meetings with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and actively worked to conceal these meetings? As background, in 2008 the Holy Land Foundation was found guilty of funding Islamic terrorist organizations. Named as “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial were CAIR and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Both organizations are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
- How exactly did Ms. Abedin avoid security clearance disqualification given that there is a documented connection between her father, mother and brother and the Muslim Brotherhood?
So John McCain, John Boehner, Ed Rollins and the rest of you in the GOP, stop criticizing Bachmann! She has more cojones than all of you combined. And Barry keeps bowing to China, compromising our security: Administration Approves Controversial Export License Allowing Sensitive Space Technology Transfer To China “Regarding space technology transfer, the report said: “Inadvertent or deliberate transfer of space-related expertise poses the most significant potential harm to U.S. national interests.”
In Other News:
Rapper Ice-T Defends Gun Rights “It’s legal in the United States,” the rapper said. “The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.” Good video. Ice-T doesn’t budge! Also excellent….this response from Aurora victim Jessica Ghawi’s brother, Jordan. He was being interviewed by an MSNBC flack trying desperately to get him to support gun control. BRILLIANT!
Wisconsin Democrat Defects, Leaving State Senate Control In Doubt “Moderate Democratic Senator Tim Cullen declared Tuesday he will no longer caucus with Democrats, possibly taking the Senate back to dead even again, even as Democrats are moving into new offices.” LOL!!
Obama Will Visit Israel In Second Term Ha , Ha, Ha!!!!! This is such pandering it’s laughable. Reminds me of this Seinfeld episode: “We didn’t bet if you wanted to do it, we bet if it would be done.”
Final Thought: “I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.” General Douglas MacArthur

ALOHA, ALL! So here we are in 2012….FINALLY! I only made one resolution for this year, and that is to do all I can to get Barack 0bama out of the White House. He left Hawaii Monday and isn’t’ wasting any time getting back to work – campaigning: Obama Returns to Campaign Trail After Hawaii Vacation: Next Stop, Ohio We don’t need a perpetual campaigner – we need a leader in the White House.
He vants to be alone. I’m sure the NYT thought this piece would be another of their complimentary diatribes about Barry, but it’s had the opposite effect. Do we really want a President who “keeps Congress and official Washington at arm’s length”? NYT: Obama’s kind of a White House recluse « Hot Air He’d rather campaign with TOTUS as his BFF, speaking in front of all his adoring fans than do his real job. Hubby wrote the following letter to the Star Advertiser about the story, but (surprise!) they didn’t publish it. Probably didn’t want to upset Barry while he was on vacation here. After all, he needed to golf, work out and eat shave ice:
With regard to your front page report (12/29) of President Obama’s isolation in office: A business for which I consult once hired a highly-touted “relationship manager” to lead its sales team. We soon learned that he didn’t like the salesmen and product managers and was overtly avoiding them. Such similar attitudes and hermit-like behavior may help explain President Obama’s inability to lead Congress. In our case, sales foundered until the bosses replaced this individual with someone who was a better fit for the job.
It was a barn burner in Iowa last night! Truly, the “winner” was Rick Santorum….but if you go by the caucus votes, it was Mitt Romney (by 8 votes over Santorum.) Holy Moly!!! And the tie goes to… Rick Santorum The Loft BREAKING NEWS: Bachmann quits race, says she’ll fight for issues
Did you happen to see the Rose Parade Monday? The OWS crowd had a float. Yep, those fine, upstanding citizens who camp out, litter, defecate and hate were allowed to participate. And what did they choose for their float? Check this out: American Power: ‘Occupy’ Crashes Rose Parade: Attacks ‘Corporate Greed’ With 70-Foot Nazi-Era Octopus Depicting Global Jewish Conspiracy Here’s video of the lovely squatters marching in the parade:

Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength (or “PMFFS” – not really, just made up the acronym) “Recently in Washington DC a group of self-described “rich” and “one percenter” political activists gathered to ask Congress to raise their taxes. The call themselves the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength. The idea is that they believe they’re under taxed, and want the government to take more from them to fund the government.
So the folks at the Daily Caller talked to some of the “activists” and asked them if they’d be willing to make a donation to the US Treasury on the spot. And, showing what utter hypocrites they are, they refused. Because it’s not about them paying more. It’s about the government forcing other people to pay more.”Say Anything » Patriotic Millionaires For Higher Taxes Turn Out Not To Be So Patriotic After All » Say Anything
This video is a riot!
Hey….look who’s the EPA’s financial advisor! MF Global Chief “Even as he finds himself the public face of a bankruptcy and admitted to lawmakers that he had no idea how client funds disappeared, Congress and the administration have voiced no public concern about Mr. Abelow’s role advising the $8.6 billion government agency on its finances.” Well gee – isn’t that special?
I like this analogy from HDR reader Don:
Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling – Let’s say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood….and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings. What do you think you should do?
1. Raise the Ceilings, or
2. Pump out the sewage
