Susan Rice. Pudding or Toast?

© Miri WTPOTUS November 27, 2012

In light of the events in Benghazi and the spotlight now shining upon UN Ambassador Susan Rice, it behooves us to take a closer look at this woman, who apparently has been groomed for decades for positions of power in Washington DC.

You didn’t think that we’d let the news about Obamacare crowd out the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress, did you?  Continue reading

440 Days

Renee Copyright 2011

In 1979 The U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran was siezed by radical students that held 52 Americans hostage for 440 days.

440 days….

Today, in Iran, radical students attacked the U.K. Embassy. They captured 6 diplomats for 6 hours until the diplomats were rescued by police. London gave the Iranian diplomats there 48 hours to leave the country.

Not a good situation. We will follow it in comments.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn Head Of The I.M.F. Arrested For Sex Assault

By Renee

Dominique Strauss-Kahn

It looks like all plans to run for President of France have been dashed for Dominique Strauss-Kahn who is now  head of the International Monetary Fund. He has been arrested amid charges of  a sexual assault of a hotel maid in his room. Mr Strauss-Kahn was removed from an airplane he had quickly boarded after the incident. He had fled his hotel room without his cell phone as well as personal belongings. Do honest men run from a crime scene? Is this story correct?

This is not the first unflattering incident for Dominique. It seems unbelievable that a man in a  highly visible position would throw it all away for a forceful sexual encounter.

Who Really Runs the Show? Open Thread

by Miri

Recently, the Wall Street Journal quoted John Heilemann, co-author of the political tome Game Change, who wrote in New York magazine:

President Obama “rarely consulted outside the tiny charmed circle surrounding him in the White House.

‘What you had was really three or four people running the entire government,’ says the former White House strategist. ‘I thought they put a pretty good Cabinet together, but most of those guys might as well be in the witness-protection program.’

A funny line, no doubt, but an overstatement, surely? Well, maybe not.

‘I happen to know most of the Cabinet pretty well, and I get together with them individually for lunch,’ says one of the most respected Democratic bigwigs in Washington. ‘I’ve had half a dozen Cabinet members say that in the first two years, they never had one call—not one call—from the president.‘ …

The president’s friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett sometimes pointed out that not only had he never managed an operation, he’d never really had a nine-to-five job in his life. Obama didn’t know what he didn’t know, yet his self-confidence was so stratospheric that once, in the context of thinking about [Rahm] Emanuel’s replacement, he remarked in all seriousness, ‘You know, I’d make a good chief of staff.’”

########

So Valerie B. Jarrett saw fit to comment upon Barry’s lack of management skills and note that he NEVER had a real job in his life?  With friends like Valerie, who needs enemies?  With senior White House advisers like Valerie B. Jarrett, who needs a president who knows how to manage an operation, much less a government? 

If three or four people run our entire government, then why are We the People paying for the cabinet members, their staffs, their offices, their travel, especially if in two years they’ve NEVER even been telephoned by the president?  They exist only for show, because those who actually run the government are the many “czars” who are unvetted and unconfirmed by the elected representatives of We the People. 

But who are the three or four people who actually ran the government from within this select circle for the past two years?  Certainly Michelle Obama is among that group.  Rahmbo and Axelrod, no doubt.  Last but certainly not least, Valerie B. Jarrett, who never leaves Barry’s side.  

According to Muckety,  “They don’t come much more networked than Valerie Jarrett.”  Just check out Valerie’s connections. 

So is Valerie our first female president?  Our first Iranian-American president?  Is Valerie herself a natural born citizen?  Who exactly IS this woman who has shepherded Barry through his entire political career?  She, who is one of the sole survivors from the first two years?  Rahmbo is under the bus.  Gibbs is under the bus.  Axelrod is gone.  The list goes on and on.  I could see Michelle going under the bus before Valerie.  So what’s the deal with Valerie? Is she a friend or is she more?  What do you know about Valerie?

National debt increased 60% under Speaker Pelosi

Pay up, suckas!

By Dan Spencer Red State

Good riddance Speaker Pelosi!

There are lots of reasons I will not miss Nancy Pelosi’s extreme left wing speakership. There’s Air Pelosi and radical legislation such Cap and Tax and ObamaCare. But the biggest reason to cheer the end of the ultra-Liberal/Progressive Pelosi Speakership is the national debt.
.
In the four years that Pelosi was Speaker the national debt increased an unbelievable 60%.

Baroque Obama

A life of public service is its own reward, besides, there are a precious few that can pull off wearing ermine in August. Instead of grumbling about the first family being out of touch, let’s try to vicariously enjoy the high life that the Fun-in-the-Sun King and Michelle Antoinette are so selflessly living on our behalf.

The government… can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, and oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any other despotic or oppressive form so long as there shall remain any virtue in the body of the people. – George Washington
