“I do not believe John Kerry is fit to be commander in chief of the armed forces of the United States. This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgement, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty, and trust–all absolute tenets of command.”…REAR ADMIRAL ROY F. HOFFMAN, USN (RETIRED)

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief


“I don’t oppose all wars,” “What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.”…Obama, antiwar rally downtown Chicago October 2002

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

So why would Obama want us constantly thinking about a possible attack on Syria and chemical threats there?

“Households On Foodstamps Rise To New Record High: More Americans Live In Poverty Than The Population Of Spain”

“There was much discussion of Friday’s “disappointing” non-farm payrolls goal-seeked, seasonally adjusted, X-13-ARIMA conceived jobs “number.” The conclusion was that it showed an economy which one year after the start of QEternity was growing nowhere near where the Fed has projected and hoped it would be at this time. But in addition to the BLS jobs number, there was another just as important number that was released on Friday: the monthly foodstamp (SNAP) participation update. There was no discussion of this particular number and for good reason. If the NFP number was at least meant to show some economic stability, if subpar, the monthly foodstamp update shows month after month that the greatest depression is nowhere near ending for millions of American living in poverty (83% of SNAP households have gross income at or below 100% of the poverty guideline ($19,530 for a family of 3 in 2013), and these households receive about 91% of all benefits. 61% of SNAP households have gross income at or below 75% of the poverty guideline or $14,648 for a family of 3 in 2013).

To wit: in June, the number of households receiving foodstamps rose to 23.117 million, an increase of 45.9k in one month, and also a new record high. As for the average monthly benefit per household: $274.55, just off record lows.”

Another hard hitting article from the Greensboro News Record September 7, 2013.
“Just how sturdy is the U.S. job market?

That’s the key question the Federal Reserve will face when it decides later this month whether to reduce its economic stimulus.
The answer depends on where you look.

The economy has added jobs for 35 straight months. Unemployment has reached a 4 1/2-year low of 7.3 percent. Layoffs are dwindling.
Yet other barometers of the job market point to chronic weakness:

The pace of hiring remains tepid. Job growth is concentrated in lower-paying industries. The economy is 1.9 million jobs shy of its pre-recession level – and that’s not counting the additional jobs needed to meet population growth. Nearly 4.3 million people have been unemployed at least six months.

What’s more, employers have little incentive to raise pay. Many unhappy employees have nowhere else to go.

Still, when it meets Sept. 17-18, the Fed is expected to reduce its $85 billion a month in bond purchases by perhaps $10 billion. Its purchases have helped keep home-loan and other borrowing rates low to try to encourage consumers and businesses to borrow and spend more.

Here’s a look at the job market’s vital signs as the Fed’s decision nears:


The unemployment rate slid in August to 7.3 percent, its lowest level since December 2008. Unemployment had peaked in October 2009 at 10 percent and has since fallen more or less steadily. Since then, the number of people who say they have jobs has risen by 5.7 million. And the number of those who say they’re unemployed has dropped by nearly 4.1 million.

That’s the good news behind the tumbling unemployment rate.

But the rate has been falling, in part, for a bad reason: People are dropping out of the labor force. Once people without a job stop looking for one, the government no longer counts them as unemployed.

Some are retiring. Some are young adults who have chosen to go to college rather than brave a tough job market. Some have gone on disability. And some have given up the job search, discouraged by repeated rejections.

The percentage of people either working or looking for work – the so-called labor force participation rate – fell last month to a 35-year low: 63.2 percent. If the participation rate were at the pre-recession level of 66 percent, up to 6.8 million more people could be counted as unemployed. And the unemployment rate could be as high as 11.2 percent.

The 4 million-plus Americans who have been unemployed for six months or more are down from a peak of 6.7 million in April 2010. Yet before 2009, the United States had never seen long-term unemployment surpass 2.9 million, even during the deep recessions of the mid-1970s and early 1980s.”

The above problems are motivation enough for Obama to divert our attention using a Syrian manufactured crisis.

Of course we know that Obama has many more reasons.

  1. “Leftist political activist and University of Chicago professor Bill Ayers has turned on Barack Obama, characterizing the president’s determination to launch a military attack on the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria as a “dumb war.””

  2. Just figure, as usual, that anything that comes out of Obama’s mouth re: “concern” is just the opposite to the truth:

    Obama Slashes Pay Raises for Military

    President Obama has told Congress he will cap next year’s pay raise for U.S. military personnel at 1 percent instead of boosting pay by 1.8 percent as called for by a federal law.

    The president’s move will negatively impact American combat troops scheduled to remain in Afghanistan through 2014.

    The federal law says military pay raises must be based on the Employment Cost Index compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which ties military raises to private sector pay growth. Under that formula, military personnel should be getting a 1.8 percent pay raise beginning in January 2014, CNS News reported.

    But the law also states that the president can inform Congress of an alternative pay adjustment “if because of national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare, the president considers the pay adjustment which would otherwise be required by this section in any year to be inappropriate.”

    Obama wrote to congressional leaders: “I am strongly committed to supporting our uniformed service members, who have made such great contributions to our nation over the past decade of war. As our country continues to recover from serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare, however, we must maintain efforts to keep our nation on a sustainable fiscal course.”

    He also asserted that his decision “will not materially affect the federal government’s ability to attract and retain well-qualified members” of the military.

    The House passed a bill in July authorizing the 1.8 percent raise, but the Senate has set the raise at 1 percent as recommended by Obama.

  3. They could fund that 1.8 raise if the presidential dog didn’t fly in its own jet. They could feed the soldiers in Afghanistan hot meals if the House and Senate cut back the barbers and restaurants on the Hill.


    Power of the office of President resides in a bona fide liar

    There is something obscene on the anniversary of 9/11 to know the power of the office of President resides in a bona fide liar. One can only hope that enough members of Congress can muster the courage to reject his request for an authorization to literally go to war with Syria. He is delusional if he thinks the U.S. can conduct a military attack on Syria and just return its ships to port without any repercussions.

    What we are hearing and seeing is one more example of Obama’s demonstrated incompetence in matters both domestic and foreign. How many times, as millions of Americans suffer from his programs and policies, must we give him another chance to inflict more harm on our economy and our lives?

    I am informed that impeachment papers have been drawn up in anticipation of any action Obama might take in Syria if Congress rejects authorization. Recall, both he and Secretary Kerry still maintain he has authority to act unilaterally.

    Obama is counting on the morons to support him, but he has vastly underestimated the intelligence of the rest of the population. When Obamacare kicks into action in October the full reality of this unaffordable, misbegotten attack on the U.S. healthcare system and insurance industry will deny more people a full time job and continue to be a drag on a stagnating economy. Then, maybe, even the Obama Morons will begin to ask why it has turned out so badly.

    We lost nearly 3,000 innocent Americans to an attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon twelve years ago. We lost an ambassador and three security staff a year ago. When will the Obama Morons figure out that a man who identifies so strongly with Muslims is no friend to America?

    © Alan Caruba, 2013
    Mr. Alan Caruba says it quite well, I think.

    As I set here at my faithful companion, my computer, wondering , what surprises lie in store for the American people for the end of September, my mind wanders back to all the surprises we have already gone through over the past 6 years with this Lier-in-Chief.

    September 13 (Benghazi Day)…which is only four days away…..what false flags has our government come up with to prove to the American people that we must go to war with Syria because the Lier-in-Chief, Mr.Obama says so…when in reality the only reason we are going to war in Syria is to protect the financial interest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar….who now have a “lock” on middle eastern energy…..

    This seems as clear as a morning sunrise to me….it will become more pronounced as this problem in Syria develops…..

    if America and Saudi Arabia fail in their attempt to effect a “regime change” to their liking in Syria…then Syria, Iran, and Iraq will unite to complete that natural gas line into the ports of Syria for shipment and sale of energy to Europe….when this happens, Saudi Arabia along with Qatar (who now has is the largest natural gas in the middle east) will take a back seat to Syria, Iran and Iraq….It is also to Russia’s advantage to see this completed.

    As I have said over, and over again here on CW…..this thing with Syria isn’t about Assad gassing his own people……hell the Arabs in that part of the world could care less about losing a few hundred million people….however it hurts them deeply to lose a single riyal (Saudi Arabian money) or a single dirham (Qatar money)…..

    In the middle east….money has a language of it’s own, they live and die by it.

    So what do these money rich, but military poor countries do?……..they enlist (hire) the military might of the United States, who is over their heads in debt to the Saudi’s to proxy fight their wars for them……they even offer to foot all the expenses of the war…providing everything of course except the blood, sweat and tears….which is the responsibility of the US to provide…..

    Well the people of America are catching on to their little game of “let’s hide the gas” (no pun intended) and blame Assad….over 75% of the American people are currently against any military action by Obama, he has no support from the NATO community…and to add insult to injury, not even the Arabs of the Arab League are willing to put “boots on the ground”….

    So the Lone Ranger of the United States (Mr. Obama) along with his trusty companion, Lurch (John Kerry), must ride off into the sunset on this one all by their lonesome…..that is, if they can muster up the gonads to do so…. It’s kinda like Dumb and Dumber going on a camping trip…..neither could start a fire without ten gallons of petrol.

    Personally, I don’t think either does, can, or will act. When you look at it the “devil in the details”…..Hot Air is Nothing but Hot Air….Obama, Kerry, and Washington are full of it.

    One thing for sure…..this promises to be an interesting week…and a grand finale to the most beautiful month of the year…September.


  5. If this isn’t the biggest bunch of screwed up wusses you’ve ever seen:


    AFTER he announces to the world (which includes those we’re “threatening”)

    Kerry pushes attack as ‘unbelievably small’…

    And don’t you know that these thugs who are slicing off heads at the drop of a hat or dismembering young girls alive are just shaking in their boots.

    And now this:

    America’s top diplomat suggested in a passing remark that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could avoid a U.S.-led strike if he handed over all his chemical weapons, but the State Department quickly dismissed the comment as more of a “rhetorical argument” than an offer.

    Thought that was what Zero was arguing all along as to how he was going to conquer the world, including our enemies (which of course he won’t even whisper the word)….with “rhetorical” stuff. There has to be a rule somewhere where completely incompetent cowards can be impeached….just for the sake of the lives of our brave military that they are blatantly using as cannon fodder.

  7. I like this article, Operation Cockamamie is a good name for all of this:

  8. For you, Mr. Bill……….

    Report: DC denies permit for 9/11 bikers; Planners move ahead anyway!

    In response to the planned “Million Muslim March” in Washington, D.C., on 9/11, bikers announced their own rival 2 Million Biker Ride. This weekend, news surfaced on blogs and Twitter that D.C. had denied the bikers an event permit.

    Nothing to stop them. It’s not illegal to ride through DC on a Harley.

  9. This video makes you wonder as to whom the REAL enemy is:

    The latest video below from Russia Today and The Truthseeker is earth shattering news. Calling this latest bombshell report ‘bigger than Watergate’, the United States government had regular meeting with Al-Qaeda’s leader and now we learn of ‘documented White House false flag terrorism’. When we throw brand new evidence from 9/11 into the mix, we have a can’t miss report. This video is now starting to go viral on YouTube. It’s time to take the ‘red pill’, America. This comes straight from CIA and White House whistleblowers.
    This week, America will remember the awful day of September 11, 2001..We will remember the Twin Towers coming down…we will remember tower 7 coming down, we will remember the strike on the Pentagon, and we will remember the crash of Flight 93 in the open fiend at Shanksville, Pa… thing we WON”T remember is:


    1. The bringing down of the twin towers and claiming that jet fuel could melt steel……that is a PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILITY…check it out.

    2. The falling of Tower 7…..television announcers were already broadcasting that Tower7 had fallen when the public could see it still standing in the background……Tower 7 was NOT struck by a plane or anything…Tower 7 contained offices of the IRS/Federal Reserve/CIA/emergency operations for NYC/, etc…, why would Tower 7 fall, if there was no reason for it to fall?…the building came stright down as a “controlled planned demolition” is expected to act….well all I can say here is……go figure.

    3. The strike at the Pentagon could NOT have been made by a commercial airline. The initial hole in the building was not large enough to prove that fact…also the surrounding areas where the object entered the building was not burned as would be expected if a commercial plane hit it filled with jet fuel….pictures of the hole in the Pentagon had the footprint of a missile….not a plane….it is also worthy to note the area where this object struck was the location where the financial accountability records are located for all Pentagon spending… now isn’t that interesting….it is also noteworthy to remember that just the day BEFORE 9-11 happened, Defense Secretary Rumsfield admitted that the Pentagon COULD NOT account for over a trillion and one half dollars of missing defense funds ……hummmmm now that’s a very good reason for that part of the unoccupied section of the Pentagon to be hit by an unknown force….

    4. Finally…the airplane crash in Shanksville, PA……all I will say about this is contained in these three factual personal statements by people at the scene:

    “This crash was different. There was NO wreckage, NO bodies, and NO noise.”
    – Somerset County Coroner Wallace Miller [1]

    “I was looking for anything that said tail, wing, plane, metal. There was NOTHING.”
    – local Photographer Scott Spangler [2]

    “I was amazed because it DID NOT in any way, shape, or form, look like a plane crash.”
    – Patrick Madigan, Commander of the Somerset Barracks
    of the Pennsylvania State Police [3]

    Yet, factual reports of this nature NEVER made it into the main stream media…..Why?




    9-11-2001 will never die in the hearts of most Americans until the TRUTH is know and those responsible brought to justice and held accountable for their actions…..regardless of who those people are, or their positions in life..

    We must never forget that over 3,000 people died that day…….is their lives not worthy of knowing what the REAL truth is concerning that faithful day?

    Then we have 9-11-2012, BENGHAZI DAY to also remember. The culprid for this disaster is still at large …..

    What will 9-11-2013 hold in store for the American people? We shall find out in two days……..

  10. Let’s remember, the Iranians, Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Hamas and Assad all think the same as Hitler. There are no good guys involved except Israel. The Arabs and Islamists all want to kill all Jews and Christians. We should not save them just as we would not save Hitler. We should stay out of Syria.

  11. SUEQ…
    in reference to the Million Muslim march in DAc and the bikers…… said,

    “Nothing to stop them. It’s not illegal to ride through DC on a Harley.”

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if “O” didn’t issue one of his famous , “Executive Orders” blocking all bikers within a 50 mile radius on that day…..

    After all, he doesn’t want anything to stop his towel headed Brothers from their “Allia Akbar” crap…won’t surprise me also if he didn’t join them and make another Hot Air speech………

    No Matter What Color You Are!
    Bill Cosby and Sam Sewell

    They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English.

    I can’t even talk the way these people talk:
    Why you ain’t,
    Where you is,
    What he drive,
    Where he stay,
    Where he work,
    Who you be..

    And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
    And then I heard the father talk.
    Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
    In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
    People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we’ve got these knuckleheads walking around.
    The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
    These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.
    $500 sneakers for what?
    And they won’t spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
    I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
    Where were you when he was 2?
    Where were you when he was 12?
    Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn’t know that he had a pistol?
    And where is the father? Or who is his father?
    People putting their clothes on backward:
    Isn’t that a sign of something gone wrong?
    People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn’t that a sign of something?
    Isn’t it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
    What part of Africa did this come from??
    We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a thing about Africa …….

    I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.

    I was born here, and so were my parents and grandparents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don’t have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa … So stop, already! ! !

    With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ………. And all of them are in jail.
    Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem.
    We have got to take the neighborhood back.

    People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different ‘husbands’ — or men or whatever you call them now.
    We have millionaire football players who cannot read.

    We have million-dollar basketball players who can’t write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.

    Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
    We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..

    We cannot blame the white people any longer.’
    Dr.. William Henry ‘Bill’ Cosby, Jr., Ed..D.

  17. If Obama wants to send a message to Iran, he should go after Iran. He is afraid of Iran which will make Iran bolder.

  18. Anybody besides me think it’s strange that many of us here regard “Russia Today” as more credible than the MSM? (Not a criticism). Anyone but me think it strange that Putin bans homosexual propaganda and praises Christianity while our own president promotes gay marriage and does all he can to persecute Christians in the military and ignore the atrocities committed against Christians in Muslim countries? I am almost ashamed to say this but I have a higher respect for Putin than my own president.


  19. RMinNC:

    Great quote from Cosby. Thanks for sharing.

  20. TINA……

    Bill Cosby doesn’t play that Afro-American crap…and he holds the black people responsible for their own failures…as it should be.

    I agree with him…that little dash seems to separate Americans from Americans……everyone knows that except Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

  21. SueQ:

    It is strange isn’t it, that we get better info from Putin and the foreign press than we do from our own press. Because Obama has not told us the truth about Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, and on his own documents, few believe him on Syria.

  22. SUEQ….you said….
    “I am almost ashamed to say this but I have a higher respect for Putin than my own president.”

    It’s called “reversal role playing”…or something like that….

    I couldn’t agree with you more on !

  23. Thanks Tina and RMinNC,
    Its just very weird. Ten years ago, I never would have imagined this.

  24. More monkey business by this administration coming to light:

    Obama administration had restrictions on NSA reversed in 2011…

    (Washington Post) – The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.

    In addition, the court extended the length of time that the NSA is allowed to retain intercepted U.S. communications from five years to six years — and more under special circumstances, according to the documents, which include a recently released 2011 opinion by U.S. District Judge John D. Bates, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

    There’s more:

  25. CW – Why is my comment awaiting moderation? No profanity, or such.

    There’s more:


    The village of Maaloula has been taken over by Syrian rebels associated with al Qaeda, who have stormed the Christian center and offered local Christians a choice: conversion or death. A resident of the town said the rebels shouted “Allahu Akhbar” as they moved through the village, and proceeded to assault Christian homes and churches.

    “They shot and killed people,” he said. “I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village. Where is President Obama to see what has befallen us?” Another witness stated, “I saw the militants grabbing five villagers and threatening them and saying, ‘Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded.’”
    And these are the madmen that Obama, McCain and Graham want to support?

  28. Cabby,

    Regarding your post at 2:14, I tend to believe Obama, McCain and Graham are being paid by the Saudis to push for this war. I have no proof… it is merely a gut feeling.

    I don’t think it is beyond the realm of possibility that foriegn governments influence politicians. There seems to be a lot of evidence that the Saudis sponsored Obama’s education. And even the MSM is paid by foriegn entities to burry certain stories and push others. This has been testified to multiple times by those in the know.

  29. Also Cabby,

    I read that a little Christian girl was dismembered in Maaloula by rebels while still alive. Tell me Mr. McCain, does “Allahu Akhbar” mean the same as “Thank God”? You’re really screwed up.

  30. Meaning McCain is screwed up……. certainly not dear Cabby.

    “On The Record: Rep. Woodall And Lt. Zullo Talk Obama ID Fraud; Phony Forged Document”

    “On September 6th 2013, Kevin Powell, a former CNN Producer/Editor met with U.S. Congressional Representative Rob Woodall in his local district office in Georgia.”

    Some comments at ORYR:

    FALCON: “Woodall fell back to the old standard of the “election is over – so it’s moot”. Further, Woodall implies that an election nullifies the crimes committed.

    Zullo better wake up and realize he can’t meet with one congressman per month and gain any momentum. Obama will be out of office before Zullo makes it through the current Congress, never-mind the next Congress.

    Zullo should release this info – and let the rest take care of itself.”
    GaryW: “I see a Congressman clearly going through the motions. He has his talking points from the republican leadership and he conveniently imposes a time limit on the phone call…his time is so precious you know. This guy clearly is not going to do a damn thing…notice how he passes the buck back to Zullo. He is not interested. He is a useless piece of **** that should be run out of office. He has no integrity and no courage to do the right thing and call a press conference and tell the world the TRUTH! He should be fanning the flames of LIBERTY…instead he just rolls over and we are essentially told to accept this communist fraud in the White House.”
    cfkerchner: “Congressman Woodall is shockingly unconcerned and very dismissive of the Obama forged docs issues and crimes committed thereby by Obama. He also said in this interview that he has not heard much from his constituents recently about the issue of Obama’s forged docs as his reason for being dismissive. He also seems to think that the courts are the only recourse to the people and thus is dodging Congress’ investigative abilities and authorities to investigate Obama’s forged ID documents and felony ID fraud….”
    “William Robert Woodall III (born February 11, 1970) is an American politician who has been the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 7th congressional district since 2011. He is a member of the Republican Party.”

  32. Interested Bystander

    Hey All,

    First of all, I must say how glad I am Ariel Castro decided to call it a day.

    I say we OFFER nooses to inmates.

    Might help with that overcrowding issue we have in our prisons.

  33. Interested Bystander


    Let me ask this,

    Just how many Republican Senators are coming out saying Graham, McCain, Kerry and Obama are wrong on Syria?

    It’s because they’re all the same.

  34. Interested Bystander

    I commented last week that I had emailed my 2 Senators and my Congressman about Syria.

    Only one mandated that I include my phone number to be able to send him my message.

    Now, I’m getting calls from the RNC. I’ve got caller ID and twice a night they’ve been calling.

    I’ve been ignoring them, but I think tonight I’ll answer and give them a piece of my mind.

    I’m sure they won’t be calling back when I get done. I may even get a “visit”.

    The odd thing is, the one who mandated my phone number be included, was the DEMOCRAT.

    Do you think maybe they gave my number to the RNC?

    There’s really no other logical explaination, I didn’t give my number to either Republican Representative.

  35. PUTIN JUMPS ON KERRY BLUNDER…and squeezes his “more flexible” worm leader to his own agenda. We’ve become the asylum where the inmates are running things and those outside watching don’t have to lift a finger while our country disintegrates on purpose.

    During a press briefing on Monday, Kerry said that Assad could avoid American air strikes by giving up all his chemical weapons within a week. Within hours, the State Department was forced to walk Kerry’s new red line back with the claim that he was making a “rhetorical argument about the impossibility and unlikelihood of Assad turning over chemical weapons he has denied he used.”

    It seems, then, reasonable to conclude that Kerry spoke out of turn. Kerry was not authorized to offer Syria an “out” or a new ultimatum. But Kerry’s hypothetical hyperbole appears to have already backfired.

    In an obvious desire to make Kerry pay for his flub and throw a wrench in Obama’s determination to go to war with Syria, Putin has seized upon Kerry’s hypothetical and called on Syria to accept Kerry’s offer and turn over all of its chemical weapons. No one believes Assad would ever willingly give up his chemical weapons, but should he agree to an offer the Obama administration did not mean to make, it could stall American action for weeks and even months.

    Syria is already warming to the idea.

    Makes Putin actually look like the humanitarian and the guy who promised to only use dialogue with our enemies look like the war monger….esp. if Assad goes along with Putin publicly and promises to turn over his chemical weapons, and Obama still insists on his attack just because he wants to prove his “red line” was firm….or whatever. No one every knows for sure what’s next with this crowd. One thing only is for certain…that they’re all insane.

    The only other possibility might be that Putin told Obama beforehand that he’d give him an out via this chemical weapons promise from Syria if Obama would play more ball according to the Putin rules

    I’d also like to comment that SOMEONE is going to have one hell of a book to write about Obama.

    I mean, you can’t make the stuff up about him.

    It seems now that he’s just going to let Syria slide off the end of the table, and something else will take it’s place.

    But then you’ve got GITMO (has any of these terrorists been to trial?), Fast and Furious, Iraq (and it’s miserable failure), the IRS scandal (that one’s dead, or at least I haven’t heard it mentioned lately), The HHS report that describes who needs to be watched, Afghanistan (who’s final chapter has yet to be written, but it sure doesn’t look good, the Taliban is just waiting for us to leave), the NDAA which allows for indefinite detention of Americans for only SUSPICION, NSA and CIA spying on you and me, Benghazi and the deaths of four Americans because gun running was going on (and please someone, RMinNC, Oldsailor, Coldwarvet, someone show me ONE TIME where our gun running has paid off, it’s just simply NOT a good idea to arm ANYONE, especially in the Middle East, but quit arming people who two decades down the line our kids will be “regime changing”), and the list goes on and on.

    And this from the man who went around the world his first year in office and told the world just how sorry he was that the United States had done wrong things, bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, won the Nobel Peace Prize, acted like some kind of rock star, went on numerous vacations while telling all of us to tighten our belts and buy a hybrid.

    And to top it off, he’s not even eligible to be the Leader of the free world, the media has indocrinated the masses in to believing a lie, and they elected him TWICE, even though he wasn’t Constitutionally eligible, and the reason no one could bring it to court was because of something called “standing”.

    Get Danzel Washington to play Obama.

    Best Picture…………….no doubt about it.

  37. SueQ, (3:16 pm)
    Your hunch about Obama, McCain and Graham could well be true. (Could include Petraeus, too.) I am almost getting beyond the shock stage these days. Anything could be possible. I dread hearing what the Liar-in-Chief’s address will be tonight.

    Also, such awful atrocities happening re. Christians in Syria. I agree fully about McCain and his “Allahu Akhbar” comment. I’ve called his office so often lately that I hesitate to do it again, but why not? It IS McCain’s fault for being so stupid. We here in AZ would like to recall him, but there is great quandary as to whether this is legally possible in our state.

  38. Just listening now to Obama being interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox. My guess is going to come true, I believe, and that is that he is going to stall on the Syrian attack. Personally I think he finds himself caught in between the Saudis and Assad…..Secretly he finds it nearly impossible to get out of the spot he’s in. So watch……this will end up being put “on hold”, and for whatever reason he has (I’m not sure that he even knows what it is), I thank God if this can be avoided for now. We are dealing with a deranged, lying cheat.

    Can I just add that I’m not a big fan of a “wrist slapping”, which is what it seems like Obama is saying he wants to do in Syria. (didn’t he say the same thing about Libya, and then they were bombing longer that the War Powers Act allows?)

    Bad boy, don’t do that again. And we really don’t KNOW if Assad did it, there are conflicting reports. The report saying Assad did it has admitted to LYING (re: Fast and Furious. re: Benghazi), and the other is the Russian media.

    I am sorry for the people that have been affected, but the sad fact is that we don’t know what footage is unique to Syria, and what hasn’t been taken from websites and being offered as being from Syria.

    And then what happens if he does it again?

    Inform me about how this “wrist slapping” is going to stop him from doing it?

    There’s just NO GOOD outcome, it seems.

    I vote that we take the route that means NO AMERICAN blood is shed.

    Concentrate more on OUR problems here at home.

    Hey All,

    Can someone explain to me how a spouse can be kicked to the curb, but a child can be covered until 26?

    My “better half’s” medical insurance is dropping me come January.

    Thanks Obamacare.

    Oh but she’s getting a 1000 dollar one time “bonus” for me being dropped.

    I’m going to call blue cross and see if I can get a liftime medical coverage for 1000.

    I’m thinking probably not.

    One more thing:

    Does anyone know of any other places Paxson could be found?

    I’d like to know what his take on Syria, Zimmerman, and many other things.

    I miss my Colorado friend.

    the nurses are saying I need to take my meds and get ready for the night “session”.

    Good evening everyone.

  43. IB…
    at 6:03pm, you said,

    ‘Benghazi and the deaths of four Americans because gun running was going on (and please someone, RMinNC, Oldsailor, Coldwarvet, someone show me ONE TIME where our gun running has paid off, it’s just simply NOT a good idea to arm ANYONE, especially in the Middle East.”
    I’m sorry my friend,
    but I cannot show you any proof that arming and gunrunning to ANY country is a good idea….and as far as that goes, neither can anyone else ! It isn’t a good idea to arm any country.

    We are in a mess that Obama , Clinton, McCain, and all the other maverick politicians in Washington created right now….especially in the middle east countries because of our “free gun policy”….

    We are playing a game in that area…it’s called “let’s rob these countries of their natural resources’…ie., Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan, and now the west sees an opportunity to rob Syria and perhaps later Iran…….it’s a game they call E N E R G Y…….

    Our “modous operandum” is simple and always the same…send in the CIA, start a revolution, get some outside help…provide lots of money and lots of weapons…especially free weapons. Keep the conflict heated up with a false flag or two. Kill as many innocent women and children as possible to gain world sympathy for your efforts. Get international attention by blaming the wrong side for the false flags…..then ride that horse as long as you can…finally turn to the UN for help in solving the problem you created in the first place……

    This type of “regime change” operation works every time….remember Iraq and a guy by the name of Saddam Hussain? now deceased… about Libya and another playboy named Gaddaffi? now deceased also….then of course there was Egypt and Hosnea Mubarak, almost dead but recently released from his prison cell…in each of these takeover operations, the method was always the same…and the results were predictable, long before the revolution ever started.

    It has worked in every target country up until now…..but there seems to be a smart dictator in Syria that isn’t falling for this “western democracy stuff”. He has called Obama’s bluff and Obama has painted himself into a corner and now looking desperately for a way out…….

    And it has made no difference how many guns Mr. Obama runs to the rebel forces and to his al Quada friends in Syria…Assad has countered and has Russia and Mr. Putin running guns to his government forces…

    Right now, the middle east has more guns that all the forces of all the warring sides in World War II in both the European and Pacific operations….

    Bottom line is : It’s not the guns killing people….it’s the people behind the guns that is killing the people.

    If the Muslims didn’t have guns to fight their wars, I’m sure they would revert back to their swords and spears….after all, killing is killing and it doesn’t really matter how you get the job done. I’m sure heads would be rolling

    IB….I don’t know if I have answered your question, but this is the best shot I can give it……..

    Hi IB,

    I have Paxson’s e-mail. If CW could give you mine, I’d be glad to send it to you.

    CW, if you would please give my e-mail addy to Interested Bystander, it’d be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I read this, and found myself laughing. You might ask what I found 'funny' in all of this; the economy, the debt, the deficit, government spying, government lying, government false flags, dirty politics, rich politicians while americans go without, unemployment, war….I could go on and on. What is funny is that in Australia, they figured it all out after they suffered under the idiots for a while. Then I remembered a quote from Winston Churchill

    "Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing…after they have exhausted all other possibilities." Winston Churchill

    The United States will get rid of the mad fascists/Marxist and their lies, after they have exhausted all of the hope and change and it's Bush's fault.


  48. Black and proud: its funny so many people can point out the things Obama keeps from us, when the truth of the matter is, it’s been going on for years. It’s only now that we have a black president you decided to keep a close eye. He’s not the first and sure won’t be the last to keep things confidential. if the government shared every little detail with us, that happens in the United States everyone would be in a frantic. Bill Cosby you are a discrase to our kind you so full of yourself, everyone don’t have the same chances as others in life so dont you forget that the next time you decide to low rate some one..
