  1. Netanyahu wants to silence the Muslim bells, you know the call to worship that Obama calls the sweetist sounds. The Palestians don’t like anything Israel does, so this is nothing new. The Israeli’s don’t like being awakened.

    Palestinians protest Israel’s mosque bill
    Dec 18, 2011 Snips

    RAMALLAH, West Bank: Thousands of Arab Palestinians took to the streets in Israel to protest a mosque bill that will ban muezzins from using loudspeakers to call the faithful to prayers.

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to bring the bill to a vote by his Cabinet on Sunday after he failed to muster enough support to pass it at a session last week. Explaining his backing for the bill, Netanyahu said there was “no need to be more liberal than Europe,” in an apparent reference to the 2010 Swiss law that forbids mosques from having minarets.

    Israeli President Shimon Pereshas said he is ashamed of the bill and others like it.“This is simply a march of folly … I am personally ashamed there are attempts being made to pass such laws.” Israel doesn’t “have to raise the ire of all the Muslims in the Arab world against us”Peres said. [And what Muslims support you now Peres? Their ire is raised no matter what Israel does.]

    If approved, the new law would ban loudspeakers from all mosques in Israel.


    I like the way Farah ends his commentary about how the media piled on after they ran another of their “where’s the birth certificate” deals during a recent football game:

    “When people are sniping at you, you probably must pose some threat to them.

    I’ll let you think about that one.”

    We might say that when people are lurking, skulking, and ridiculing you, you probably must pose some threat to their messiah.

  3. Jake Tapper Presses WH On Biden’s ‘Taliban Is Not Our Enemy’ Remark!
    December 19, 2011

    Jake Tapper forces Jay Carney to answer for Biden’s remark that the Taliban is not our enemy. Carney concludes that the statements are only regrettable “if taken out of context.” [What a friggin’ dance Carney! Who were we fighting besides Al Queda?]

    • Remember the secret meetings that the Obama military was having with the Taliban and that we were aghast to hear about? They had to be secret..for a reason, because they were deemed the enemy. You’ll love the secret agreement of releasing Taliban Gitmo prisoners back to the Afghans! Didn’t the Obama administration take heed of Mike Mullin’s words prior to his departure? Now you know why out of the blue Biden is saying the Taliban is not our enemy!

      Exclusive: Secret U.S., Taliban talks reach turning point
      Dec 19, 2011 Snips
      (Reuters) – After 10 months of secret dialogue with Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents, senior U.S. officials say the talks have reached a critical juncture and they will soon know whether a breakthrough is possible, leading to peace talks whose ultimate goal is to end the Afghan war.

      As part of the accelerating, high-stakes diplomacy, Reuters has learned, the United States is considering the transfer of an unspecified number of Taliban prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay military prison into Afghan government custody.

  4. Justice Dept. Insists Holder Wasn’t Playing Race Card When He Played Race Card (Video)
    Dec. 20, 2011

    Worst. Administration. Ever. The Justice Department today released a statement insisting Attorney General Eric Holder was not playing the race card when he played the race card in an article published yesterday in The New York Times. Clearly this incompetent Obama official thinks we’re all stupid. Eric Holder needs to go. They won’t own up to their incompetence and think we’re stupid.

    Allen West has it right: “It’s not about your color, it’s about your competence.” [Amen!]

    • Maybe our animus is because he’s ultimately responsible, along with his boss, for the death of hundreds of Mexicans and at least one patriotic law enforcement officer. This is so disgusting. This man whines and plays the race card when a man is dead.

      The man is dead. Agent Terry is dead. His family waits for justice and the best Holder can do is tell them that they’re extremists and racists for expecting him to account for his actions or at least have the cojones to freaking RESIGN.

    • Holder is an apparent racist.

      He and his beholden one are using their own free People to be their lackies.

      America is not racist. That is water under the dam for almost 50 years.

      racism and superiority go hand in hand.

      Black Americans are not held back from anything, anywhere at anytime in America. Many are paid just because they exist.

      Holder is not only a hateful racist. he’s a mean, ugly, wealthy man in the 1% using his kin and folk to thwart from being seen for what he is. a conniving sneak and liar living the high life. ingrate. lawbreaker.

      • It’s so ironic. He IS the racist. He runs the dept. of inJustice on a racial basis. That’s why he ADMITS to Congress that he will only investigate voting rights violations if the victim is NOT WHITE.

        If you’re WHITE, go elsewhere for justice because voting rights are NOT protected for you on account of Holder’s twisted logic which must be: If you’re white, then in the past your ancestors could vote and his couldn’t. So as voting reparations, he’s going to see to it that his protected classes can vote, even if illegally, even if multiple times, and if anybody like his New Black Panther peeps try to intimidate you, a white person, into NOT VOTING, well, that’s only “fair”. Isn’t it?

        What a warped twisted middle-aged man.

        Yes, racism and superiority do go hand in hand. That’s another goal. He apparently wants to create a new “elite” class consisting of “persons of color”. Also as reparations.

        He seems to have some twisted opinion that since Whites were ascendant and in power for several hundred years, then it’s only “fair” that their descendants (or the even the descendants of recent immigrants who had nothing to do with slavery but who happen to share pale skin) should be SUBJUGATED and LORDED OVER by a new ruling caste of people with dark skin, for at least an equivalent time frame, but better still–forever.

        This is such JUVENILE “logic” that words fail, or should, but you know: In my case, words NEVER fail! 🙂

        • Justice Dept. Insists Holder Wasn’t Playing Race Card When He Played Race Card

          Hilarious ! Truly a “duh” moment.
          That is very funny.
          Truly, you cannot make this stuff up.

    Obama Removes Christ From Christmas Tree… Inserts Himself
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, December 20, 2011

    The Obama Administration removed Christ from the National Christmas Tree this year… But the ornaments do pay homage to Obama.
    CNS News reported:

    The 63-foot Sierra White Fir lighted at the U.S. Capitol Grounds on Dec. 6 as the official 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree includes a prominently displayed ornament paying homage to President Barack Obama, but includes no ornament readily visible to a person standing near the tree’s base that uses the word “Christmas,” or includes an image of the Nativity, or bears the name or image of Jesus Christ.

    On the north side of the tree–at a height of about 4 feet and easily visible to people standing near it—there is an ornament that says: “I ♥ President Obama.”

    When asked whether the tree included any ornaments that mention or depict Christmas or the birth of Jesus, the office of the Architect of the Capitol, which is responsible for the tree, told that it “does not have a policy nor any restrictions concerning the themes for the ornaments” that go on the tree. The office could not say, however, whether or not this year’s Christmas tree does in fact include even a single ornament that directly references or depicts Christmas or Christ.

  6. As the tide turns? Is sulfur in the air? Can I possibly agree with Chavez? OMG!

    Hugo Chávez says Obama is ‘a clown and an embarrassment’
    Dec. 20 Snips

    Venezuelan president makes comments after US leader criticises his links with Iran and Cuba in a newspaper interview. On the eve of his first official overseas trip since being diagnosed with cancer, Hugo Chávez has launched a blistering attack on Barack Obama, describing the US president as a “clown” and an “embarrassment”.

    “Focus on governing your country, which you’ve turned into a disaster,” the Venezuelan president told state TV on Monday.

    Chávez’s comments followed a rare and strongly worded interview with Obama published by the Caracas-based El Universal newspaper. The American president criticised Venezuela’s business and political links with Iran and Cuba, and raised concerns at what he called threats to the country’s democracy.

    Chávez, who travelled to Uruguay to push for full Venezuelan membership of the Mercosur, issued a rebuttal, claiming the interview was motivated by next year’s US presidential elections. “Mr Obama decided to attack us,” he said. “Now you want to win votes by attacking Venezuela. Don’t be irresponsible. You are a clown, a clown. Leave us in peace … Go after your votes by fulfilling that which you promised your people.”

  7. Barack Obama has become a monster
    Dec. 19 Snips

    And Obama again proves that only gullible, stupid people vote for him.

    Posted on the pomposity that is the site of the “Office of the President Elect” it says this: Protect Whistleblowers: Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.

    That, as is just about everything else about Barack Obama, is chock full of manure. It is as phony as he is.

    Baack Obama promised to protect whistleblowers and instead has done absolutely the opposite.

    This is the President who promised to protect whistleblowers but now pursues them with a vengeance. This is the President who refuses to prosecute those who break the laws and promises to prosecute those who enforce the laws. This is the President who demanded all Americans be subject to indefinite detention without trial.[includes the Carl Levin video that was erased from You Tube]

  8. Miri, Do you see where I posted yesterday on the Patton-Parton name anywhere ? I cannot find that comment and search is not pulling it up either. I have another connection to it to add. If anyone else finds it I would really appreciate it.

    • Miri, I could swear I put it on the open post where there was a connection that it went into. I need it with the comments of others also. Without the flow of the conversation, the connections or possibilities are LOST.
      I keep going back to where I thought I put it but cannot find it. It was yesterday. Thank you Miri, or anyone that finds it.

  9. New polls show Obamacare’s approval just hit a new low of 29%

    A new poll shows that 52% of Americans now think President Obama should be voted out of office

  10. Of course he does. He wants to go on vacation and get out of town to meet Michelle in Hawaii. Her cost (taxpayer cost) for taking a plane prior to him is $100,000! (flying ahead seems to be a pattern now). Is he past the Blame Bush routine or back on to the Tea Party?

    White House Blames ‘Tea Party Revolt’ For Tension Over Payroll Tax Cut
    December 20, 2011

    White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer: “You can’t get 89 votes in this day and age for apple pie, yet they all supported this. They did it with the understanding that the House would approve this two-month extension and Speaker Boehner got on the phone with his caucus, tried to sell it. He had a Tea Party revolt. He reversed his position and he’s now putting danger, a tax increase…”


  11. Interesting Quiz to take from USA Today.

    Answer the following questions to see which Republican candidate is most like you. Eleven questions to answer. The commentors seems to believe it works. My answers gave an even split among three contenders for my vote.

  12. Bachmann Confirms Christian Leader Asked Her to Drop Out of GOP Presidential Race
    December 21, 2011 Snips

    Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann appeared on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” this morning, where she confirmed that Evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats, president of The Family Leader, called her over the weekend to discuss the future of her candidacy.

    Based on Bachmann’s words, it appears that the reported discussion about her potentially dropping out of the race was accurate. In addition to allegedly asking the congresswoman to drop her presidential bid, Vander Plaats also purportedly asked her to get behind either Rick Perry or Rick Santorum.

    Bachmann has no intention of bowing to this call, as she claims she has consistently polled better than either of the candidates she was apparently asked to support.

  13. I am really starting to like Santorum. I don’t know exactly why. I was shocked that the quiz above confirmed that.

    I have been thinking that he his consistent in his stance on issues and he’s a traditional American and his love of Country is sincere.

    • Glenn Beck likes him, too.

      • I have decided if Glennnn Beck is sold on someone I may won’t to stay away from that one till I see the motive for it. I like Mormon Glen ok,but in the Scheme of things, I can’t help but think about his short lived Yale days with a little help from Joe Lieberman, and then his universal speech he made in Israel with Mark Ndesandjo’s buddy Rabbi Yetzer(sp).Is Santorum another Neocon zionist placater? I don’t know, I’m just wondering.

        • And look who just threw their Neocon zionish support to Mormon Romney…..Old George Herbert WALKER Bush.

        • i don’t know why i like him. I only had a thought or two about it.
          I was shocked that he showed up as my “pick” in that quiz.

          I like West, actually. And Palin. The GOP frontrunners stink in my opinion. They are a part of the machine.When all is said and done, I will vote for ABO.

          Mike Pence (R Indiana) is the best. See Bridgette’s recent post on the Presidency and the Constitution. It’s awesome.

    • I have always liked him too. He’s spot on as far as I’m concerned on every position. His problem has been that he comes across like a prick. It’s not anything he’s saying, just the way he says it. He was so hyper and jerky when he spoke that it made him seem like he was pissed or had a chip on his shoulder. But in the last few debates he has not been doing that. Still, I like Newt, depsite his flaws. Remember when Santorum in that one debate said when he was first running for office Newt was the guy whose speeches he listened to and who shaped his conservatism? Newt is an original Reaganite and despite some odd deviations here and there, Reagan is his core and he has the ability to make clear and convincing statements of conservative principles. His rise in the polls is only a result of the debates when he is speaking directly to Americans without the newsmedia filter. I think that is the single most important characteristic because that is all any Republican candidate will have to rely on in the general.

  14. In the same way that there seem to be multiple permutations of the Gifter, it seems that the first dog Bo, too, has managed to clone himself. How stupid do these people think we are?? I think I am going to rent the movie Dave tonight…..

    Did Bo Return From Hawaii for Obama’s Photo Op?

    by Keith Koffler on December 22, 2011, 11:53 am

    Updated 1:43 pm ET

    Bo Obama was supposed to be in Hawaii. Instead, he showed up at President Obama’s side Wednesday shopping for treats at Pet Smart

    According to Michelle Obama’s press office, the first dog was planning to go to Hawaii with the first lady and the Obama daughters. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that he in fact had gone there. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog having his walk.

    So what is Bo doing back in Washington shopping at PetSmart?

    Either these reports are mistaken, or Bo was told his vacation was over and that he had to return to the White House to keep a lonely president company – and participate in a silly photo op presenting Obama as an average guy who likes to head out to the PetSmart.

    If Bo returned from Hawaii, who paid for his flight?

    It’s possible he hitched a ride on a return flight of the Air Force plane that brought Michelle from Hawaii, which wouldn’t have really added much to Michelle’s more than $100,000 price tag for her solo trip.

    Or maybe he commandeered his own Air Force jet.

    • 57th, I heard that on the radio a while ago and couldn’t believe it. So Bo either has a clone or a double (like Barry) OR they flew the darned dog all the way back to DC just for a photo op.

      Did you hear, also, that MO says if she is reincarnated, she’d love to come back as a dog? I have news for her …

      It’s all taqiyya, btw. Dogs are dirty animals to Muslims. So, bite the bullet and pretend…

      Maybe he’s really a big black sheep or a genetically engineered sheep that looks like a dog. If a sheep, he could be useful …

      I’m expecting some “rational” explanation to come out, since this story is getting air time. They’ll probably say the dog spotted in Hawaii was a sibling of Bo’s. Didn’t they know the people they got him from? Maybe their ritzy “friends” out there got one of Bo’s siblings. Expect some such “explanation”. If We the People paid his air fare, then we’ll never learn about it.

      Barry stayed behind in DC supposedly to “help” with the payroll tax holiday negotiations. Instead, he’s out Christmas shopping for dance videos (seriously) and treats for the dog.

      Just a regular guy. When are the people going to get sick and tired of all this Kabuki theatre? It’s not like this is a reality SHOW. Unfortunately, it’s REALITY.

      I heard that the RINOs are caving. ALL they had to do was make it clear that a 2 month “tax holiday” is basically meaningless AND ALL THAT MONEY IS COMING OUT OF THE SOCIAL SECURITY TAX FUND. THAT’S BARRY’S TAX “CUT”, NOT BUSH’S. BARRY’S RAIDING THE SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND EVEN AS THE BOOMERS ARE RETIRING AND THE FUND IS FIXIN’ TO CALL IN THOSE IOU’S. It’s insane.

    • We are to believe that BHO went shopping for dog food? Just a regular guy? Perhaps the food was for the Mutt instead! I can see him gnawing on some tasty milkbones. Are there quarantine rules for dogs arriving in Hawaii? Or do those rules only apply for lawful citizens, and the king’s dog is exempt? Maybe BO wasn’t allowed into Hawaii and was flown back to D.C. at taxpayer expense – you think the Obama’s can’t find a business reason for flying that dog? They just get Bo a social security number and new identity at the nearest cemetery, and there’s a new dependent deduction for their taxes too. They probably claim MO’s mom as a dependent and get a childcare deduction too.

      MO flying solo once again, and where is that secret agent man?

    • You don’t reckon there are Bo twins to go with the other TWIN in the white house do ya? It’s lilke the Patty Duke show. And where did BO get his name? I must have missed that. Do you think there was already another Bo and Bar in Hawaii ? You know… the one with the more muscular frame and goatee,…the Bar they use for the Muscle beach shots. No wonder Michelle likes to go on ahead of the skinny, fartsy Bar..the one with the big ears.

      • contrived dog crap. everything they do is self-serving. their conceit drips and they are not as smart as they think they are. they are not getting over. the little bit of factual history we have on them is all you need to know.

        con artists.

      • The acid test: Does a hot dog make Bo (or BO) lose control? 🙂

  15. Miri | December 23, 2011 at 2:32 pm |

    ABO, not to be confused with BO’s bro Samson, though.

    yeah, i guess you’re right. he’s as qualified and as eligible as his new and improved so called brother.

    Anyone But Obamafarce.

  16. Donald the Trump has switched parties again. Saying now, “the republicans can’t win”, but he can, if he wishes too. He should forget about the debates, declare himself the winner, buy a whitehouse and hire everyone except Mitt and Newt as grounds keepers.
    President Trump! It has a nice ring to it, almost as good as President Obama.

  17. It has a nice ring to it, almost as good as President Obama.

    LOL harvey, you got that right! I’ve said it before and I’ll keep on saying it, I do not trust Trump, not one little bit.
