On to the tease…

Talk about leaving a mark!

Talk about leaving a mark!

Where did our love go?

Obama roughed up by the Supremes. The Supreme Court that is. Hobby Lobby plays the hypocritical faith card and wins. What’s worse, the Court says Obama can’t make recess appointments if John of Orange says the House is in a session even if no one is present. That’s gotta sting.

 

 

 

Is that crack I smell?

Is that crack I smell?

He’s back and off crack!!!!

Well for the moment he is. The coolest mayor in North America is back from rehab and ready to run Toronto again. The question; is Toronto ready? Is the world ready? I know I’m ready.

 

 

 

I'm not the worst! Yeah! Take that America.

I’m not the worst! Yeah! Take that America.

Move over Jim.

The results are in and Obama is now polling as the worst President (33%) since WWII. But it’s not Jimmy Carter that has to move over. He’s only polling at around 7%. It’s big W, George Bush 43 that slides to second, polling around 28%. Third place, well that bastard is way back in the low teens.

 

All this plus a new bit where Tony and I lay down 5 presidential decrees we would enact in “If I was President!”

Don’t miss it.

They don’t know Bo…or anything else, it seems

traitors

Couldn’t they have included these people in the deal?

 

Oh my. Well, we’ll be debating this for quite a while now, I presume. The talk and the arguments by pundits right and left will go on and on. Another  stellar moment in the Obama administration.  Of course,  I’m talking about the Bo Bergdahl situation. Here’s a few things that bother me about it.

 

Of course, the judgments are yet to be made. At some point he should be given his due process. Yet, one of the most important things to me is what the fellow soldiers that served with him are saying. When they come out and throw you under the bus, it’s a problem. If you walk off your job as a civilian, you simply lose your job. You can’t do that in the military. People can die if you do that. That’s why military members are held to a different standard, called “The Uniform Code of Military Justice.” Below is an excerpt from the UCMJ, “Article 85. Desertion.”

 

Article 85. Desertion

10. Punitive Articles

(a) Any member of the armed forces who–

(1) without authority goes or remains absent from his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to remain away therefrom permanently;

(2) quits his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to avoid hazardous duty or to shirk important service; or

(3) without being regularly separated from one of the armed forces enlists or accepts an appointment in the same or another on of the armed forces without fully disclosing the fact that he has not been regularly separated, or enters any foreign armed service except when authorized by the United States; is guilty of desertion.

(b) Any commissioned officer of the armed forces who, after tender of his resignation and before notice of its acceptance, quits his post or proper duties without leave and with intent to remain away therefrom permanently is guilty of desertion.

(c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.

Pretty serious shit right there.

Apparently, the Obama administration had no idea of the firestorm they were about to create. That’s puzzling in itself.

The administration is already trotting out B.S to try to make things better. Unbelievably, the media is already advancing what I believe to be an Obama administration attempt to make it better by saying ‘he tried to escape.’ It may not matter. If he’s found guilty of Article 85 it doesn’t matter if he was captured by the Taliban, found out they live a shitty existence, and tried to escape. The crime under the UCMJ was already committed. And again, the thing that strikes me most is what his fellow soldiers are saying. If you’re in the military, you stick up for each other. It’s the biggest, most exclusive club in the world, and if you’re in it, you’ll stick up for your guys to a fault. If your guys are not sticking up for you….

The administration is engaged in damage control as if they didn’t have an idea of what the situation was before they made the deal. Unbelievable. Now, I just saw they have Susan Rice out making statements. So, they’re having the same women that lied to us about Benghazi make statements about Bergdahl? Seriously, are these people that dumb? And to make it worse, here’s the quote they put under her face while she was saying it on CNN, “Bo Bergdahl served honorably.” Oh my. From a practical standpoint, you just can’t say that at this point. From a political standpoint, I’m stunned she would say such a thing. If he’s brought back and convicted for violation of Article 85, this headline will surpass all the lies she told about Benghazi. Please, get Susan Rice out of my face.

The other thing that sticks out to me is this: Even if he’s guilty, I support bringing him back, but I don’t support how it was done. The administration comes off looking like a clown-car fire drill yet again.

Here’s the thing, we dealt with a group. Not a country. Not a nation. We dealt with people who have an “office” in Qatar. We, the United States of America, dealt with not a country or a nation, but for all practical purposes, a group of thugs. These people destroyed religious symbols in Afghanistan, subjugate woman, engaged in decapitations and public shootings. Remember the video of the woman they shot in the soccer stadium for “adultery?” This is who we dealt with. Or even worse, didn’t deal with them. We apparently went so far as to allow them to determine the terms. What? We could have at least made them take Jane Fonda and Sean Penn, at least I would have felt like we got something out of the deal. I’d even throw in Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore. Hey, that’s one blockbuster right there! (Ok, I feel bad including Alec with this group. He’s just an a-hole).

The failure of the Obama administration is evident in many places, not the least of which is effective foreign policy. I suspect that the philosophy of one like Obama and those like him just prevent them from understanding the Unites States’ place in the world, and how to use that effectively and humanely. As a result, we wind up being weak, ineffectual, and that lands us in messes that should have never happened.

At the end of Jimmy Carter’s presidency, Americans were taken hostage by Iran. Sixty-six American diplomats and citizens were held hostage for 444 days (November 4, 1979, to January 20, 1981).

The hostages were formally released into United States custody just minutes after the new president, Ronald Reagan, was sworn into office at his inaugaration. I’m sure some scholars could give long, erudite arguments for why this happened other than the reason I believe. These would be the same people that refuse to give Reagan credit for ending the cold war. What I believe is this: that the Iranians had done their homework, and knew that Ronald Reagan was going to kick them in the balls if they didn’t release the hostages.

I was wrong about Barrack Obama. When he was elected, I said “Well, he can’t be worse than Jimmy Carter.”

Last one out gets the check.

I’m losing by this much.

And so it begins…

NC Senator Kay Hagen (D), skips Obama event in her home state. Says it’s cause she has business in DC. Nuh Uh. She’s getting distance from Obamcare, wildly unpopular in North Carolina. Who’s the next rat to jump from Obama’s Titanic?

 

Wow

Wow

As the Worm turns

First he gets drunk and goes on CNN to extol virtues of Kim Jong UN. Now Rodman is having buyers remorse. Crying in front of reporters after arriving in US, Rodman apologizes over and over. Dennis, is that because you made an ass/traitor of yourself or because you and a bunch of retired NBA stiffs lost to the North Korean National team?

 

All lanes to Christie White House closed?

All lanes to Christie White House closed?

A bridge to no where? 

Still waiting for the other shoe to drop on Christie in the bridge-gate scandal? Don’t hold your breath. This may have been what he said it was. Regardless, polls show it’s not hurt him one bit in NJ. Nationally he’s slipped behind Hill-dogg in race for the WH. But it’s still early 2014. My gut says this doesn’t affect the presumptive Republican nominee at all.

Plus a UF/UF Presidential Big Board update and a great “It’s a Conspiracy!” bit tonight.

Ah fresh powder.
Ah, fresh powder.

Old Faithful – on skies.

Yeah our old buddy is back and he’s badder than ever. Kim Jong Un, fresh off grinding his uncle’s bones into a fine powder, uses that powder to open North Korea’s first ever ski resort. Open to the public too. Never let it be said he’s not a man of the people.

 

Don't let them forget. Ever.

Don’t let them forget. Ever.

Chew that bone Darrell

Rep. Issa, R CA, is not letting go of the Benghazi cover up. Call him a right wing nut job if you want, but he’s one of the few in government that seems at all concerned about how four Americans were left to die in our own embassy. That makes Darrell our Politician of the Podcast.

Let the games begin – Rand Paul fires the first shot for 2016.

It's on folks.

It’s on folks.

Well we were wrong. Tony and I had discussed on our podcast that the race for the White House would heat up in the late summer of 2014. That has been the norm. A straw poll event in Iowa in late August 2 years prior to the actual election is what normally kicks off the presidential race.

So for example, the election for the next President is in November of 2016. The straw poll/state fair type event in August of 2014 would usually start the festivities, meaning sniping, snarking, baiting, and berating by all the candidates running for their party’s nomination. So that’s a good 2 years and 3 months of campaigning in some form. However it appears the Rand Paul campaign has decided to get a jump start. Read what one of his operatives in New Hampshire, Andrew Demers, had to say about Congressmen Perter King (R) NY. The quote appeared in the New Hampshire Union Leader in an opinion column written by Demers himself.

“In New Hampshire, where two of the top three 2012 Republican presidential primary candidates were non-interventionists (and carried 40 percent of the vote total of the five major candidates), Rep. King will not have much luck with a message that even he admits most Republicans oppose.” Andrew Demers New Hampshire Union Leader 26 December 2013

King has been publicly contemplating a run at the White House in 2016 as well. I guess Paul is looking to stomp all the early challengers as quick as possible. Demers also used phrases like “King’s faction on the Republican party” and called King an interventionist because of King’s stance on Syria. Read the entire piece here: http://www.unionleader.com/article/20131227/OPINION02/131229497

This is a great sign for political geeks and junkies. I count myself among them. The first three buttons on my TV remote favorites list are C-Span, C-Span2 and C-Span3. And with good reason. As President Obama is term limited we should get twice the fun since both parties will be having meaningful primary elections.

Tell me you're not excited about this!

Tell me you’re not excited about this!

I mean it’s not unprecedented by any stretch. This won’t cause a lot of ripples for most people. But a shot like this, coming this early in the proceedings, indicates it’s gonna be a good brawl for the next two years. And this is just the Republicans. The Democrats haven’t even started trying to bring Hill-Dogg down yet.

I get that this may be a complete non-story for most of you. But I’m baking cookies and putting out a glass of milk, cause for me this is Christmas Eve all over again.

A very long Christmas Eve.

Happy campaign season!

He's white damn it!!

Black is beautiful… unless we’re talking Santa or Jesus

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly has serious discussion about the whiteness of Santa and Jesus. She comforts the kids by assuring them that Santa is in fact a white man. She takes to the air 3 days later to defend herself from the enormous amount of mockery she’s getting on social media, MSNBC, CNN, etc… No worries folks, she was just kidding.

 

Hey, look at that! They are both white!

Hey, look at that! They are both white!

Don’t mess with Jesus on his birthday!

The Catholic Church wins a precedent setting court decision against the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare. Judge rules they are not bound by the contraception mandate.  Church –  1 Obama – 0. Next round is in the appellate court. Is this the next blow to the entire foundation of the law itself. We report, you decide!

 

 

Santa-Bama

Wait, he’s not white? I’m confused.

Kiss the Ring!

Kiss the Ring!

Homo ex annum

Yeah the literal translation doesn’t work so well. No matter. My namesake, Pope Francis 1st, is Time’s Man of the Year for 2013. From the ridiculous rouges gallery of finalists including Syria’s Assad and Edward Snowden, who did you think it would be. This guy sneaks out in the middle of the night, shakes his security detail, all to feed the poor in the streets. Are you kidding me!

 

 

 

 

Lookin good Helen!

Clearly these three are a threat to freedom.

Praesidis sui photos

Latin makes anything look good, well except man of the year. But it does wonders for phrases like Presidential Selfies. Fox news goes batcrap crazy over a selfie pic by Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt, British PM Cameron and our President, taken during Mandella’s memorial. No matter that Madiba’s legacy was trying to bring people and cultures together. Fox spends day and a half of coverage bemoaning the President’s actions. Dopes.

 

 

This handshake deemed Ryan unclean.

This handshake deemed Ryan unclean.

Habemus a budgeteum!

We have a budget! Paul Ryan and Patty Murray finally get a budget hammered out. 1st one in the history of this administration. Problem – Ryan is an R, Murray is a D. The conservative criticism led by Hannity and Limbaugh was fast a furious. The bill passed the house in overwhelming numbers. Ryan missed it all though. He had to hustle back to Wisconsin to prepare for the primary challenge he’ll face from the Tea Party wing of the his own party.
