AS THE IMAGE TO THE LEFT ILLUSTRATES, RED STATE SENATORS LIKE PRYOR, HAGAN, AND LANDRIEU ARE TRYING TO DISTANT THEMSELVES FROM OBAMA. THEY MAY BE ABLE TO AVOID HIM ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, BUT THEY CAN NEVER REMOVE THEIR VOTING RECORD OF SUPPORTING SUCH MEASURES AS THE ACA. THEY HAVE MADE THEIR BED, BUT NOW DON'T WANT TO SLEEP IN IT. THEY MAY REMOVE THAT OBAMA TATTOO, BUT THE STINK WILL REMAIN FOREVER. IMAGE BY AFTERMATH
Obama asked the queen, "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?"
"Well," said the Queen, "The most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."
Obama frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know if the people around me are really intelligent?"
The Queen took a sip of champagne. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle, watch." The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?" Tony Blair walked into the room and said, "Yes, your Majesty?" The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please Tony. Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?" Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered, "That would be me." "Yes! Very good," said the Queen.
Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden the same question. "Joe, answer this for me." Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?" "I'm not sure," said Biden. "Let me get back to you on that one." He went to his advisors and asked everyone, but none could give him an answer. Frustrated, Biden went to workout in the congressional gym and saw Paul Ryan there. Biden went up to him and asked, "Hey Paul, see if you can answer this question." "Shoot Joe." “Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?" Paul Ryan answered, "That's easy, it's me!" Biden smiled, and said, "Good answer Paul!"
Biden then went back to speak with President Obama. "Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle." "It's Paul Ryan!"
Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face, "No! You idiot! It's Tony Blair!"
And that my friends is precisely what's going on at the White House.
IT SEEMS THAT BIG LIPS AND BUTTS ARE NOW A FASHION TREND IN CERTAIN CIRCLES PARTICULARLY IN THE HOLLYWOOD ARENA. WHEN ONE WALKS DOWN THE STREETS IN TINSEL TOWN THIS IS QUITE OBVIOUS. LIKE ALL FADS THIS WILL FADE, BUT NOT UNTIL IT REACHES THE EXTREMES. I MUST WONDER IF THE OBAMA'S WERE IN ANYWAY PARTIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS TREND. HAVE THEY HELPED CREATE A "WANNA-BE" GENERATION? JUST SAYING.
PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS REDEFINED THE THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT. ACCORDING TO BARACK THERE IS: THE PHONE, THE PEN AND OF COURSE BARACK "HIMSELF" OBAMA. UNDER HIS NEW SYSTEM THERE WILL BE LESS DEBATE AND MORE ACTION ACCORDING TO THIS ADMINISTRATION AND THERE WILL BE NO NEED FOR ALL THOSE COSTLY CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS AND THE MONEY SAVED CAN BE USED TO PUT MORE PEOPLE ON FOOD STAMPS AND OTHER SOCIAL WELFARE PROGRAMS DEEMED NECESSARY BY PROGRESSIVE LEADERS.

THE PRESIDENT LOVES TO TALK ABOUT A FEW THOUSAND CEO's ACROSS THE NATION THAT EARN FAR TOO MUCH MONEY ACCORDING TO HIM. BUT HE NEVER, NEVER TALKS ABOUT THE MILLIONS OF ABLE-BODIED FREE LOADERS THAT THE REST OF US HAVE TO SUPPORT. EVER WONDER WHY? THE ANSWER IS REALLY QUITE SIMPLE---THOSE FREE-LOADERS ARE DEMOCRATS WHO CONSISTENTLY AND OVER-WHELMINGLY VOTE FOR THE PARTY THAT ALLOWS THEM TO CONTINUE TO MOOCH OFF THE REST OF US. TALK ABOUT INEQUALITY, NOW THIS IS THE GREATEST INEQUALITY OF ALL. THANKS TO THE PEOPLES CUBE FOR THIS IMAGE.
ACCORDING TO SOME RECENT NEWS REPORTS EXECUTED INMATES HAVE BEEN COMPLAINING ABOUT THE METHOD OF THEIR EXECUTION (LETHAL INJECTION). AS A RESULT MANY STATES ARE CONSIDERING BRINGING BACK LONG TESTED AND PROVEN METHODS OF SENDING CONVICTS ON THEIR FINAL TRIP AT TAXPAYERS EXPENSE. METHODS SUCH AS: OLE SPARKY (THE ULTIMATE TASER), THE SHORT ROPE FOR THAT TALL TREE, AND THEN OF COURSE THAT ALL TIME FAVORITE (THE FIRING SQUAD). SOME HAVE CLAIMED, THAT LETHAL INJECTIONS SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR LOWLY DOGS AND CATS AND OTHER SUB-HUMAN SPECIES AND ARE TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE FOR HUMAN BEINGS. SO MANY STATES LEGISLATURES ACROSS THE NATION ARE APPARENTLY BOWING TO THE WILL OF THEIR INMATES ON DEATH ROW AND SEEKING TO UPGRADE THE METHOD USED TO SEND ONE ON HIS FINAL TRIP. ONE STATE SENATOR WAS HEARD TO COMMENT WE AIM TO PLEASE WHEN IT COMES TO THOSE UNFORTUNATES WHO ARE SITTING ON DEATH ROW ONLY BECAUSE OF THE HEINOUS CRIMES THEY COMMITTED.
THE OBAMA REGIME, AND IT IS JUST THAT, HAS PUT THE FULL WEIGHT OF THE FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY BEHIND IT'S EFFORT TO SUBDUE A SMALL CATHOLIC GROUPS OF NUNS (THE LITTLE SISTERS OF THE POOR) AND IS TRYING TO FORCE THEM TO GO AGAINST THEIR DEEPLY HELD RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. THOSE IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SEEM TO HAVE LITTLE USE FOR TRADITIONAL RELIGIOUS VALUES AND PUT THEIR FAITH IN THE STRENGTH OF GOVERNMENT. A GOVERNMENT, THEY BELIEVE, THAT HAS ALL THE ANSWERS TO WHAT AILS AMERICA. AND THOSE WHO DO NOT ACCEPT THIS ARE THE REAL DISBELIEVERS. NO THOSE IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DO NOT WANT TO RAVISH THE BODIES OF THESE SISTERS, BUT STEAL SOMETHING OF FAR GREATER VALUE---THEIR BELIEF IN GOD AND THEIR SELF-RESPECT.

TONIGHT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE FORMER LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD (I SAY FORMER, BECAUSE HE WAS THAT WHEN HE CAME INTO OFFICE, BUT LIKE ALMOST EVERYTHING HE HAS SCREWED THAT UP TOO) WILL GIVE HIS ANNUAL STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH BEFORE A JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS TO BE ATTENDED BY MEMBERS OF THE SUPREME COURT, JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF AND OTHERS. FOR THE MOST PART THE PRESIDENT WILL PAT HIMSELF ON THE BACK FOR A JOB WELL DONE, BLAME OTHERS FOR THE SHORTFALLS, AND PROMISE TO ENACT HIS PERSONAL AGENDA THIS NEXT YEAR BY HIMSELF THIS NEXT YEAR REGARDLESS OF WHAT THOSE IN CONGRESS THINK. IT WILL BE HIS WAY OR THE HIGHWAY. NOTHING WILL BE SAID ABOUT THE 6.5 MILLION WHO HAVE LEFT THE WORKFORCE, AN INCREASE IN FOOD STAMP RECIPIENTS, THE INCREASE OF AMERICANS IN POVERTY DURING HIS FIRST 5 YEARS, THE RISING COST OF HEALTH CARE, THE COST OF GASOLINE AND OF COURSE THE EXPLOSION OF THE NATIONAL DEBT. NO TONIGHT, THE PRESIDENT WILL PAINT A ROSY PICTURE AND BLAME ALL THE FAILURES THIS PAST YEAR ON THOSE EVIL REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE. THIS DESPITE THE FACT THEY TOO, WERE ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE TO THE PEOPLE'S HOUSE. THANKS TO POLITIFAKE
IT CERTAINLY LOOKS LIKE OBAMA IS MORE CONCERNED WITH THE WELFARE OF GAYS IN THE MILITARY THAN WITH THE READINESS OF OUR ARMED FORCES. I KNOW NOT WHAT COURSE OTHERS MAY TAKE BUT AS FOR ME GIVE ME A MAN IN THE FOXHOLE WHO'S MORE INTERESTED IN GRABBING HIS RIFLE THAN GRABBING MY GUN. CONVERSELY, A GREAT LOOKING BABE, IN THE FOXHOLE WOULD BE GREAT UNTIL THE BULLETS STARTED TO FLY, THEN GIVE ME SOME OLD REDNECK BOY THAT KNOWS HOW TO SHOOT. JUST MY PERSONAL PREFERENCES.

Wendy Davis, a member of the Texas legislature, best known for her filibuster of an anti-abortion law that would have prohibited late term abortions, is now a candidate for governor of that state. Poor Wendy simply couldn't help herself when she embellished her resume. Stating she had lived in a trailer park and worked her way through Harvard Law School. Turns out she did actually live in the trailer park for several months and that it was her rich husband that picked up the tab for her college education, only to be given the boot by Wendy after he made the final payment on her tuition. Wendy should have told the truth about her roots. After all she was actually born under a bridge in Austin, to a mother who was unable to afford a late term abortion and who was the second cousin twice removed from Lizza Mae Jones who's, great, great, great aunt was a full blooded African American. Well perhaps Wendy didn't want to tell the story about her birth beneath that bridge---after all had she been aborted there would be nothing to tell. End of story.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS OUR INFRASTRUCTURE IS FALLING APART AND WE NEED TO TOSS MORE DOLLARS AT THE PROBLEM. IN SOME PLACES AS THIS IMAGE SHOWS THAT MAY BE THE CASE. BUT IN THE PAST WE HAVE SPENT BILLIONS AND LIKE MOST GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS HAVE GOTTEN LITTLE FOR OUR MONEY. THE CONTRACTORS WHO GET THE GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS ARE NOT THOSE WITH THE LOWEST BIDS, BUT THOSE WITH THE RIGHT POLITICAL CONNECTIONS. THEY KNOW THAT SUB-STANDARD WORK IS THE NORM ON GOVERNMENT PROJECTS AND NOT THE EXCEPTION. AND THAT IS NO PUNISHMENT FOR SHODDY WORK, BECAUSE THEY HAVE FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES. CALLING FOR MORE SPENDING TO IMPROVE OUR INFRASTRUCTURE IS NOT THE ANSWER, BUT REFORMING THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEM IS THE ONLY SOLUTION. BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA WOULD NEVER, NEVER DO THAT BECAUSE HE SEES GOVERNMENT FUNDING AS A WAY TO BUY FAVOR FOR HIS POLITICAL FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS AND NOT A WAY OF MAKING REAL IMPROVEMENT. YOU TAX DOLLARS ARE BEING WELL SPENT---WELL SPENT IN REWARDING CRONIES FOR THEIR SUPPORT AT VOTING TIME.
WHEN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THESE TWO, THEY NOT ONLY LOOK ALIKE, BUT ACT ALIKE. IRRESPONSIBLE RICH YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE SEEN AS ROLE MODELS FOR OTHER, NOT SO RICH YOUNG PEOPLE. WONDER HOW LONG IT WILL BE BEFORE WE ARE BLESSED WITH A MUG SHOT OF MILEY? THANKS TO THE LOOKING SPOON
ONCE AGAIN THE POLITICAL LEADERS IN ILLINOIS (REALLY CHICAGO) ARE ATTACKING THE SECOND AMENDMENT. ACCORDING TO LAWMAKERS IN SPRINGFIELD, THE CAPITAL, ANYONE SEEKING TO GET MEDICAL MARIJUANA MUST RELINQUISH THEIR RIGHT TO OWN A GUN. SOMETIME I THINK THAT THE GOOD OLE BOYS IN CHICAGO SIT UP AT NIGHT THINKING OF WAYS TO CIRCUMVENT THE 2nd AMENDMENT. WHY TO CHICAGO POLITICANS NOT WANT THE PEOPLE IN ILLINOIS TO OWN GUNS? WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF? PERHAPS THEY ARE AFRAID THAT ONE DAY THE GOOD CITIZENS OF THAT STATE WILL REALIZE HOW BADLY THEY ARE BEING SCREW AND WILL COME AFTER THEM, NOT WITH PITCHFORKS, BUT WITH SOMETHING FAR MORE EFFECTIVE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS BEEN TELLING US THAT AL-QAEDA HAS BEEN DECIMATED AND THE ECONOMY IS BOOMING. WONDER HOW MUCH LONGER HIS NOSE CAN GET. HE IS CALLING AL-QAEDA ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST NOTHING BUT A JV (JUNIOR VARSITY) TEAM. TELL THAT TO THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES AT BENGHAZI AND THOSE WHO FOUGHT AL-QAEDA IN FALLUJAH. I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY OBAMA JUST CAN'T LEVEL WITH AMERICANS ABOUT ANYTHING. WHY, IN GOD'S NAME, DOES HE KEEP SPINNING THE YARNS. AND DOES HE REALLY THINK WE BELIEVE HIM ANYMORE?

THE EARLY NATIVE AMERICANS WHO CAME INTO CONTACT WITH WHAT WAS THEN A MERE TRICKLE OF WHITE MEN, FOR THE MOST PART WELCOMED THEM WITH OPEN ARMS. EVEN WHEN THAT TRICKLE TURNED INTO A STEADY FLOW MANY STILL DID LITTLE TO STOP WHAT WOULD BECOME A FLOOD. A FLOOD THAT WOULD END THEIR WAY OF LIFE, TAKE THEIR LAND AND DESTROY THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THEIR CIVILIZATION. AT SOME POINT YOU MUST SAY NO WHEN IMMIGRANTS THREATEN YOUR WAY OF LIFE. YES, WE ARE A COUNTRY OF IMMIGRANTS, BUT ASK THE INDIANS HOW THAT WORKED OUT FOR THEM. Thanks to Politifake for the image.
MOVIE PRODUCER. HARVEY WEINSTEIN, WHO HAS MADE MILLIONS FROM MOVIES GLORIFYING GUN VIOLENCE IS NOW THREATENING TO MAKE A MOVIE CONDEMNING THE NRA AND WITH IT THE 2ND AMENDMENT. HARVEY DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT AMERICANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO OWN GUNS. THAT MEANS HE IS SUPPORTING A SYSTEM IN WHICH ONLY THE GOVERNMENT HAS GUNS. SEEMS LIKE STEVEN SPIELBERG HAS ALREADY MADE SUCH A FILM, SCHINDLER'S LIST. Thanks to Politifake for this image.
RAND PAUL HAS IT RIGHT WHEN HE SAYS, IF OBAMA, BIDEN, PELOSI, REID, McCAIN, GRAHAM AND CHRISTIE ARE AGAINST YOU THEN YOU MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.

SHADES OF GEORGE WALLACE! NEW YORK GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO HAS TAKEN A PAGE FROM FORMER ALABAMA GOVERNOR GEORGE WALLACE'S BOOK AND IMPLIED THAT CERTAIN GROUPS OF PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER WELCOME IN HIS STATE. ACCORDING TO THE NEW YORK GOVERNOR THOSE WHO HAVE PRO-LIFE, PRO-GUN OR PRO-TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE POSITIONS ARE NO LONGER WELCOME IN HIS STATE. I WONDER IF HE WILL GO SO FAR AS TO GIVE THOSE INTERLOPERS ONE WAY BUS TICKETS OUT OF THAT STATE. THE GOVERNOR KNOWS THAT HE COULD NOT CALL FOR SEGREGATION BY RACE, CREED, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN BECAUSE THAT WOULD VIOLATE FEDERAL LAW, BUT HE IS KEENLY AWARE THAT CALLING FOR SEGREGATION BY POLITICAL ORIENTATION IS STILL QUITE LEGAL. I WONDER IF THE KKK IS SENDING HIM A MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION, NO THAT'S NOW QUITE RIGHT IT SHOULD BE THE COMMUNIST PARTY BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES THAT DISCRIMINATE BECAUSE OF POLITICAL ORIENTATION. ONE THING FOR SURE CUOMO IS ONE OF THE NEW INTOLERATE FACES OF THE NEW AMERICAN LEFT.
THIS JOKE HAS MADE THE ROUNDS, BUT ONLY BECAUSE IT HAS SOME TRUTH IN IT. DESPITE OBAMA'S ATTEMPTS TO CLEAR UP QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS BIRTH THERE ARE STILL MANY QUESTIONS REMAINING ABOUT HIS COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS, SOCIAL SECURITY NO. AND OTHERS. AS FOR BEING A SOCIALIST---WELL THAT POINT HAS BEEN SETTLED. OBAMA HAS PUSHED THE NEEDLE AS FAR AS HE CAN WITHOUT HAVING THE WHOLE COUNTRY TURN AGAINST HIM. AS FOR HIS FAITH, ONLY HE CAN PROVIDE THE ANSWERS THERE. I KNOW WHAT HE SAYS, BUT THEN WITH ALL THE LIES THAT EASILY FLOW FROM HIS LIPS, WHO IN HELL WOULD BELIEVE ANYTHING THE MAN SAYS.

IT WAS JUST A FEW SHORT YEARS AGO THAT THE BLOODY BURNED BODIES OF AMERICANS WERE DRAGGED THROUGH THE STREETS OF FALLUJAH AND THEN HUNG FROM THE FALLUJAH BRIDGE THAT CROSSES THE EUPHRATES RIVER. NOT LONG AFTER THAT U.S. FORCES STORMED THAT CITY AND WITH SOME OF THE HEAVIEST LOSSES OF THE WAR TOOK BACK THE CITY FROM THE ISLAMIC RADICALS. HOWEVER, WHEN OBAMA BECAME PRESIDENT HE TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF TO REMOVE ALL AMERICAN TROOPS FROM IRAQ AND NOT LEAVE BEHIND SOME SMALL RESIDUAL FORCE AS WE HAD DONE IN ALMOST ALL COUNTRIES FOLLOWING AN AMERICAN VICTORY---GERMANY, JAPAN, KOREA, THE BALKANS, AND MANY MORE. AND NOW THAT VACUUM IN IRAQ IS BEING FILLED BY TERRORIST AGAIN AND BY IRANIAN RADICALS. YES, THE CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS IN IRAQ IS OBAMA'S FAULT. PRESIDENT OBAMA MIGHT JUST AS WELL RAISED THE BLACK FLAG OF AL QAEDA HIMSELF. Thanks to Townhall for above cartoon
BARACK OBAMA HAS BEEN PUT IN AN ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE POSITION. IF HE DOESN'T SIGN UP FOR HIS CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT HE WILL BE CRITICIZED BY THE RIGHT FOR PUSHING OBAMACARE ON THE GENERAL PUBLIC WHILE REFUSING TO ACCEPT IT FOR HIMSELF. ON THE OTHER HAND IF HE SHOULD SIGN UP HE WILL BE FORCED TO REVEAL INFORMATION ABOUT HIMSELF, THAT HAS, UP TO THIS MOMENT, BEEN KEPT SECRET. IT WOULD SEEM HE'S BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE. WELL NO THAT'S NOT QUITE TRUE AFTER ALL HE CAN SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER GIVING HIM ALMOST ABSOLUTE POWER TO DO AS HE PLEASES. BECAUSE IT TAKES YEARS FOR THOSE CHALLENGING AN EXECUTIVE ORDER OF THE PRESIDENT TO HAVE THEIR CASE HEARD BY THE SUPREME COURT. AND BE ASSURED BY THAT TIME BARACK WILL BE ENJOYING THE GOLF LINKS AND BEACHES OF HAWAII BEFORE RETIRING TO HIS MANSION BEHIND A WALL GUARDED BY THE SECRET SERVICE COURTESY OF THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS. Thanks to Politifake for the above image.
MANY ARE BEGINNING TO THINK THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CONSTITUTION IS ONE THAT VIEWS THAT GIVES HIM ALMOST UNLIMITED POWER. SOME ARE WONDERING WHERE THIS SO-CALLED CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER LEARNED THE CONCEPTS HIS IS PUTTING INTO PRACTICE, BY SEEKING TO GOVERN BY EXECUTIVE ORDER. IF, INDEED, OBAMA IS A CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER, ONE MUST ASSUME THAT HE WAS SOMEWHERE BELOW THE BOTTOM OF HIS CLASS---WE CAN DO THAT FROM HIS ACTIONS AND FROM THE SIMPLE FACT THAT NO ONE HAS SEEN HIS COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS WHICH HE TREATS AS SOME TOP SECRET GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS. WHAT IN GODS NAME IS HE HIDING? IS IT SO DEVASTATING THAT IT MUST BE KEPT UNDER LOCK AND KEY FOREVER. WELL AT ANY RATE, THAT'S ANOTHER STORY. FOR NOW WHAT'S IMPORTANT IS NOT HOW OBAMA GOT TO THIS POINT, BUT WHERE WILL HE GO FOR THE NEXT 3 YEARS. I FOR ONE FEAR THAT IF HE IS NOT REIGNED IN THERE WILL BE NO LIMIT TO HIS POWER GRAB, AND THAT BY THE END OF HIS SECOND TERM IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO REVERSE THE PATH HE HAS PUT THE NATION ON. OBAMA'S VIEWS OF THE CONSTITUTION ARE A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICA. Cartoon by Gary Varvel
WHEN IT COMES TO SCANDALS CHRIS CHRISTIE IS A RANK AMATEUR WHEN COMPARED WITH THE ABSOLUTE "MASTER OF THE SCANDAL", BARACK OBAMA. PRESIDENT OBAMA MAY NOT BE GOOD AT GOVERNING, IMPROVING THE ECONOMY, OR UNITING THE PEOPLE BUT HE IS THE ABSOLUTE UN-CHALLENGED MASTER OF SCANDALS. POOR OLE CHRIS CHRISTIE IS A MERE PIKER IN THIS FIELD FOR OBAMA HAS NO EQUAL. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT THOSE IN THE MEDIA HAVE FAILED TO RECOGNIZE OBAMA'S (SCANDAL) GENIUS, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME GIVING CHRISTIE FAR TOO MUCH CREDIT FOR "BRIDGEGATE"! PERHAPS ONE DAY, THE MSM WILL WAKE UP AND GIVE THE PRESIDENT DUE CREDIT FOR HIS SCANDAL ACHIEVEMENTS AND QUIT TRYING TO PROMOTE CHRISTIE FOR THE SCANDAL OSCAR. Cartoon by William Warren
FOLLOWING HIS MUNICH MEETING WITH ADOLPH HITLER IN 1938 BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN RETURNED HOME AND DECLARED "PEACE IN OUR TIME" AND LESS THAN ONE YEAR LATER THE GERMANS INVADED POLAND TOUCHING OFF WWII. ONE WOULD THINK PRESIDENTS WOULD LEARN FROM HISTORY AND NOT REPEAT THE MISTAKES OF THE PAST, BUT THAT IS SELDOM THE CASE. JUST AS CHAMBERLAIN LEARNED THAT HIS AGREEMENT WITH HITLER WAS A WORTHLESS PEACE OF PAPER I FEAR THAT OBAMA IS ABOUT TO LEARN A HARD LESSON THAT DEALING WITH THE DESPOTS IN TEHRAN IS NOT ONLY A FUTILE, BUT WILL IN THE END POSSIBLY ENGULF THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST IN A WAR----PERHAPS ONE IN WHICH NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE EXCHANGED BETWEEN ISRAEL AND IRAN, WITH THE A HIGH PROBABILITY THAT MAJOR POWERS COULD BE DRAWN INTO THE CONFLICT.

WITH THE PRESIDENT DEMANDING MORE AND MORE SPENDING FROM CONGRESS AND CONGRESS FOR THE MOST PART CAVING IN TO HIS DEMANDS, THE NATION IS HAVING TO BORROW MORE MONEY FROM LENDERS LIKE CHINA ASSURING THAT OUR CHILDREN WILL HAVE TO PICK UP THE DEBT AT SOME POINT. THAT SAID, AT THE SAME TIME THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS PROMOTING MORE FREE BIRTH CONTROL MEASURES IN ACTS LIKE OBAMACARE. THIS CERTAINLY SEEMS LIKE AN OXYMORON IN THAT IT WILL TAKE MORE CHILDREN TO PAY OFF THE HUGE DEBT BEING GENERATED BY OBAMA. Cartoon by Jerry Holbert
AL GORE WARNED US ABOUT THE DANGERS OF GLOBAL WARMING AND WE FAILED TO HEED THOSE WELL-FOUNDED OBSERVATIONS FROM THE INVENTOR OF THE INTERNET, AN ABSOLUTE GENIUS.

From the former secretary of defense, a strikingly candid, vividly written account of his experience serving Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Before Robert M. Gates received a call from the White House in 2006, he thought he’d left Washington politics behind: after working for six presidents in both the CIA and the National Security Council, he was happy in his role as president of Texas A&M University. But when he was asked to help a nation mired in two wars and to aid the troops doing the fighting, he answered what he felt was the call of duty. Now, in this unsparing memoir, meticulously fair in its assessments, he takes us behind the scenes of his nearly five years as a secretary at war: the battles with Congress, the two presidents he served, the military itself, and the vast Pentagon bureaucracy; his efforts to help Bush turn the tide in Iraq; his role as a guiding, and often dissenting, voice for Obama; the ardent devotion to and love for American soldiers—his “heroes”—he developed on the job. In relating his personal journey as secretary, Gates draws us into the innermost sanctums of government and military power during the height of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, illuminating iconic figures, vital negotiations, and critical situations in revealing, intimate detail. Offering unvarnished appraisals of Dick Cheney, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Presidents Bush and Obama among other key players, Gates exposes the full spectrum of behind-closed-doors politicking within both the Bush and Obama administrations. He discusses the great controversies of his tenure—surges in both Iraq and Afghanistan, how to deal with Iran and Syria, “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” Guantánamo Bay, WikiLeaks—as they played out behind the television cameras. He brings to life the Situation Room during the Bin Laden raid. And, searingly, he shows how congressional debate and action or inaction on everything from equipment budgeting to troop withdrawals was often motivated, to his increasing despair and anger, more by party politics and media impact than by members’ desires to protect our soldiers and ensure their success. However embroiled he became in the trials of Washington, Gates makes clear that his heart was always in the most important theater of his tenure as secretary: the front lines. We journey with him to both war zones as he meets with active-duty troops and their commanders, awed by their courage, and also witness him greet coffin after flag-draped coffin returned to U.S. soil, heartbreakingly aware that he signed every deployment order. In frank and poignant vignettes, Gates conveys the human cost of war, and his admiration for those brave enough to undertake it when necessary. Duty tells a powerful and deeply personal story that allows us an unprecedented look at two administrations and the wars that have defined them.

OBAMA'S PLAN FOR AMERICA IS REALLY GOOD IF YOU ARE ONE WHO BELIEVES IN A SAME SEX MARRIED, UNARMED, ILLEGAL ALIEN NATION. OBAMA AND THOSE AROUND HIM WOULD HAVE AN UNARMED AMERICA, ALTHOUGH THEY WOULD NEVER PUBLICLY DECLARE THAT. IN THAT RESPECT THEY ARE SOMEWHAT LIKE THAT CLOSETED GAY PERSON WHO HIDES HIS REAL IDENTITY. OBAMA IS TEARING DOWN THE MILITARY ONE BRICK AT A TIME WITH MOVES LIKE PUTTING WOMEN IN INFANTRY COMBAT UNITS. ASK ANY MALE SOLDIER WOULD THEY RATHER HAVE A MAN IN THE FOXHOLE WITH HIM INSTEAD A BEAUTIFUL BLOND. PERHAPS THE BLOND WOULD BE CHOSEN AS LONG AS THE BULLETS ARE NOT FLYING, BUT WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE----A BROTHER IN ARMS WOULD BE THEIR CLEAR CHOICE. OBAMA WILL NEVER ADMIT THAT ALTHOUGH I SUSPECT HE KNOWS IT. BUT TRUTH IS HE JUST DOESN'T CARE, BECAUSE HE IS NOT IN THAT FOXHOLE. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS DOES NOT BELONG ON THE BATTLE FIELD OR IN THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER----IT IS DESTROYING AMERICA. THANKS TO WOODSTERMAN
WHILE MANY AMERICANS LIKE TO SIT AROUND AND CRITICIZE THE ACA, PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT, THERE ARE SOME UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES THAT WILL BENEFIT US ALL. IN THE MODERN ERA, FAR TOO MANY HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH THAT PERSON TO PERSON INTERACTION, BUT NOW WITH OBAMACARE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO MEET AND MINGLE WITH OTHERS WHILE WE WAIT IN THOSE LONG LINES AT THE DOCTORS OFFICE AND YES, EVEN IN THE EMERGENCY ROOMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WILL BE GREATLY EXPANDED. YES, THE NEW DOCTOR'S OFFICES WE WILL BE FORCED INTO WILL BE CROWDED WITH THOSE EAGER TO REAP THE BENEFITS OF OBAMACARE. BUT ALAS, MILLIONS WILL, AT THE SAME TIME STAY HOME AND AVOID THAT TRIP TO THE DOCTOR BECAUSE OF THE VERY HIGH DEDUCTIBLES. MAKES ONE WONDER IF THE ACA WAS PLANNED THAT WAY. BUT THEN IS THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT ONLY INTENDED TO HELP THE VERY POOR IN THE COUNTRY BY PROVIDING SUBSIDIES FOR THEM ON PREMIUMS AND DEDUCTIBLES WHILE AT THE SAME TIME BURYING THE MIDDLE CLASS WITH UNAFFORDABLE PREMIUMS AND DEDUCTIBLES. AS I SEE IT, THE ACA WILL, IN THE END DO FAR MORE DAMAGE THAN GOOD AND THE LOSERS WILL FAR OUT NUMBER THE WINNERS. YES, THE ACA WILL BE AFFORDABLE FOR THE VERY POOR AND THE VERY RICH LEAVING THE REST OF US IN THE LURCH. Thanks to Liberal Logic for the image.
Did Barack execute his Uncle Onyango "Omar" Obama by feeding him to Bo and Sunny (The White House Dogs)?
PRESIDENT OBAMA'S HALF-UNCLE, ONYANGO "OMAR" OBAMA, AND HIS AUNTIE, ZEITUNI ONYANGO, ARE MISSING AND RUMORS ABOUT THEIR FATE ARE RAMPANT ACROSS THE NATION AND AROUND THE WORLD. THE LEADING NEWSPAPER, "THE PYONGYANG TIMES" IN THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF NORTH KOREA HAS REPORTED THAT THE UNSUSPECTING COUPLE HAS BEEN FED TO THE WHITE HOUSE DOGS (BO AND SUNNY) IN A SECRET ROOM BELOW THE OVAL OFFICE. WITH SOME OF HIS 300 CZARS AND CLOSE MEMBERS OF THE STAFF BEING FORCED TO WATCH AS THE TWO LARGE VICIOUS PORTUGUESE WATER DOGS DEVOURED THE SCREAMING COUPLE. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS LONG BEEN EMBARRASSED BY THE ACTIVES OF HIS AUNTIE AND UNCLE DURING THEIR ILLEGAL STAY IN THIS COUNTRY WHERE THEY SPONGED OFF WELFARE, HEALTHCARE, AND FREE PUBLIC HOUSING BY USING MULTIPLE NAMES AND ADDRESSES AND THEREBY TARNISHING THE IMPECCABLE, STELLAR REPUTATION OF THE PRESIDENT. ACCORDING TO THE PYONGYANG TIMES, PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD FINALLY HAD ENOUGH AND DECIDED TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THE TWO AS A WARNING TO ALL WHO WOULD DARE TO INSULT HIM BY SULLYING HIS SHINING EXAMPLE TO THE MASSES IN THIS COUNTRY. AT THIS TIME THE REPORTS COMING FROM PYONGYANG CANNOT BE CONFIRMED. BUT WITH UNCLE ONYANGO AND AUNTIE ZEITUNI STILL MISSING THE MYSTERY SURROUNDING THEIR FATE REMAINS.

OBAMA POLICIES WHICH HAVE EXPANDED THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM AND LENGTHENED THE PERIOD FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE HAVE ACTUALLY GENERATED JOBS---THAT IS JOBS IN THE "ROCKING CHAIR" FACTORIES ACROSS AMERICA. AND AT THE SAME TIME WE HAVE SEEN A SPIKE IN THE UNDERTAKING INDUSTRY. BECAUSE AFTER ALL, ONCE YOU BECOME USE TO THE COMFORT OF THE OLD ROCKING CHAIR IT'S JUST A SHORT TRIP TO YOUR LOCAL FUNERAL PARLOR. THE ONLY REAL BENEFITS OF OBAMA'S POLICIES OTHER THAT THE AFORE MENTIONED IS THAT THE NUMBERS OF THE "ROCKING DEAD" SEEMS TO BE DIMINISHING AS MORE AND MORE ARE WELCOMED TO THAT EARLY GRAVE. YOU TOO, CAN HAVE YOUR OWN SKELETON ROCKING CHAIR, BUT THE PRICE IS VERY HIGH!

IS SPEAR-FISHING LEGAL IN THE ALOHA STATE?
WHY IS IT THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS LITTLE PROBLEM FIRING MILITARY COMMANDERS THAT HAVE A LIFE LONG HISTORY OF HONORABLY SERVING THE NATION WHILE AT THE SAME TIME REFUSING TO FIRE SOME OF HIS POLITICAL HACKS WHO HAVE REPEATEDLY LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? THE ANSWER IS REALLY QUITE SIMPLE---HIS HACKS TOW THE MARK AND WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT THE PARTY LINE, WHILE THOSE LEADERS IN THE MILITARY PUT THE INTEREST OF THE NATION AND THE MEN THAT SERVE UNDER THEM FIRST. PARTY AFFILIATION MEANS LITTLE TO THESE COMMANDERS. FORMER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE SPEAKS TO SOME OF THIS IN HIS NEW BOOK. WITH OBAMA ITS DEMOCRATS FIRST AND AMERICA SECOND.
OBAMA IS NOW HOME FROM HIS LAVISH HAWAIIAN VACATION, ALTHOUGH THE FIRST LADY WILL RETURN LATER ON AIR FORCE ONE AS IT CONTINUES TO MAKES TRIPS FROM WASHINGTON TO HAWAII. HOWEVER, THATS ANOTHER STORY. NOW THAT OBAMA IS BACK IN THE OVAL OFFICE HE NEEDS TO DIVERT ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE FAILING AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, SO HE'S NOW FOCUSED ON INEQUALITY. OBAMA PLAN FOR SOLVING THE INQUALITY PROBLEM IS VERY SIMPLE, JUST CUTTING THE LEGS FROM ANYONE DARING TO RISE ABOVE THE MASSES.

WHY DID MOST IN THE NEWS MEDIA NOT REPORT THE FACT THAT THE SHIP THAT IS TRAPPED IN THE ANTARCTIC WAS THERE TO OBSERVE THE EFFECTS OF WHAT THEY SEE AS GLOBAL WARMING DUE TO THE ACTS OF MANKIND. COULD THIS BE BECAUSE THOSE IN THE MEDIA DO NOT WISH TO REPORT ANYTHING THAT GOES AGAINST THE NARRATIVE THEY HOPE TO PRESENT. THOSE IN THE MSM ARE THE SAME ONES THAT ACCUSE THOSE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GLOBAL WARMING DEBATE OF IGNORING FACTS AND BEING "FLAT-EARTHERS", BUT NOW IT SEEMS THAT THE GLOBAL WARMING CROWD NOT ONLY WOULD DENY FACTS, BUT CHOOSE NOT TO PUBLISH THEM AND ALLOW THE UNDECIDED TO COME TO THEIR OWN CONCLUSIONS ON THE ISSUE.
