I can’t think of anything more uplifting than that moment when the soldier coming home from war gets to meet his baby. (both of them.)
This week we have our “What button?” new Secretary of State, Swifty Boat Captain, John Kerry, stating that the USSR was no threat to any and the cold war was over and then making fun of Sarah Palin AND Mitt Romney for claiming that yes, Russia is to be watched.
And they were RIGHT. Russia has invaded the Ukraine.
And so, still in shock at the fact that he was wrong, and how it’s just not in his cultural upbringing to even think that Russia would even DARE act unlike a fellow civilized member of Harvard, John Kerry, said this:
“It would be very difficult for me to understand how Russia would reconcile its position on Libya, its position on Syria, its warnings against intervention in another country and then not respect the sovereignty of Ukraine and the will of the people there,” Kerry said.
“We’re hoping that Russia will not see this as a sort of continuation of the Cold War, we don’t see it that way,” Kerry said Wednesday on “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States — this is not ‘Rocky IV.’”
“It’s an incredible act of aggression…It is a really a stunning willful choice by President Putin to invade to another country.
“You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext isolate Russia with respect to this invasion. “
And neither did the alligator, who for years, has had no fear from any other creature on the planet. Why be swallowed by a mere snake? Impossible! To think, that silly crane, and that turtle warned him…really. Don’t they know NOBODY would dare to attack him?
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Why, John Kerry of course! An alligator, had a real disadvantaged. He can’t read.
Evidently, John Kerry doesn’t either, but he could take out a few history books…you know. Just to make us all feel a bit safer…he is after all…

Hey! We got the heads up today on Face the Nation: Newsflash—according to the authors of the new biography of Hillary Clinton called HRC (Yes, they have to rebrand Hillary to be a CEO) it was NOT Obama that killed bin Laden, it was Hillary. Panetta came to Hillary and she was all for it! She was a real HAWK! Even General Petraus is singing her military praises.
Yes, Hillary got bin Laden. But unlike Bush and Obama, she stays quiet, and gets somebody to write a book to praise her as the real goddess of war.
I got this in an email called Chicken Salad and Chicken shit…(LOL!) To show you, at least the Republicans have enough sense to give credit where credit is really due.

President George W. Bush’s speech after the capture of Saddam Hussein:
“The success of yesterday’s mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving Iraq. The operation was based on the superb work of intelligent analysts who found the dictator’s footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people. Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our armed Forces and I congratulate them!”
Barrack Hussein Obama’s speech after the killing of Osama bin Laden:
“And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the Director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.”
(Obama did not once acknowledge our brave men and women)
Hillary Clinton’s’ speech after Benghazi:
“What difference does it make? I killed bin Laden!”

Here’s something I was alerted to in an email that is not being reported about much. It seems, when Japan’s Fukushima exploded, our Navy went to the rescue, even though, we must assume with the technology of today, both countries knew the men and women on board the USS Ronald Reagan would be sacrificing their lives:
From the Washington Post;
At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday.
“We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner, who is representing 51 crew members suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.
Even as the Reagan was steaming toward the disaster, power-company officials knew the cloud of steam they were releasing — in order to relieve pressure in the crippled plant — was toxic, the lawsuit argues, a claim that has also been made by the Japanese government.
“And then we couldn’t go anywhere. Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months,” until Thailand took them in, she said.
“I was standing on the flight deck, and we felt this warm gust of air, and, suddenly, it was snowing,” Cooper recalled of the day in March 2011 when she and scores of crewmates watched a sudden storm blow toward them from the tsunami-torn coast of Fukushima, Japan.
So…was this Japan’s way of getting back at us for Hiroshima? Or— was this Obama’s suggestion of a cruel payback to conservatives and the military he so blatantly dislikes?
And yet today, we are talking about a mall shooting. The mall shooting might be used in Obama’s speech next week, but I can guarantee you, this incident will NEVER be mentioned by the White House.
Our men and women of the military deserve better.

Robert Gates, the retired Secretary of Defense, has come out with a memoir that will be attacking Obama and his time spent under his command. Obama all along, Gates said, thought the whole surge in Iraq and Afghanistan was a failure, yet he did it anyway. Al-Qaeda now takes back the country of Iraq, and all our men and women died for nothing.
But, to Obama, that’s just not his problem. It’s Bush’s.
Gates came out against Joe Biden even more. Personally, I don’t think he goes far enough. After Obama got his new toy as “Commander in Chief” he really stuck it to our military. He made the “rules” of engagement so ludicrous that our guys were sent into war without even being able to protect themselves. And yet, our good man and women, the best of us all…did what they were told and succeeded despite the incompetent “commander in chief”.
Obama is not fit to run a country, let alone a military.
One of the things that our founders did not foresee was that not all future Presidents would have the war knowledge of a George Washington. I can see why they gave the title to Washington, who had lead men into battle at every chance. And even John Adams, while not the military man that Washington was, studied military history day and night. From the War Office in Philadelphia, Adams, Harrison, Rutledge, Sherman and Wilson, literally ran the Revolutionary war. The only military history Obama has studied was the Communist Manifesto. On top of that, Obama is not only our first ‘black’ President, he is our most feminine one.
This from the Washington Post:
Gates was a backer of a substantial troop increase for Afghanistan early in Obama’s first term, while Biden argued for a smaller counter-terrorism mission in the country. Leveling one of the more serious charges that a defense secretary could make against a commander in chief sending forces into combat, Gates asserts that Obama had more than doubts about the course he had charted in Afghanistan. The president was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail,” Gates writes in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War.”
Gates also reveals Obama’s hatred for General Petraus, and Nobody Knows if Obama did not use the NSA to spy on the good general emails for the sex scandal that brought him such shame, in which he had to resign.
Gates evidently said he almost quit while working for Obama, and Nobody Knows why he waited until now to tell the people what was going on before this, even though he knew the whole time, that our men and women were losing their lives for a cause that the President didn’t even take seriously.
(Okay, pension, treason…he was scared….)
Obama may not like war, but he loves to tell everyone that he is “the commander in chief” and Nobody Wonders, how many veterans who fought in Iraq would love to drop the President at the front of the lines in Kabul to show that he is as worthy as George Washington to inherit that command.
Maybe we should reconsider making Presidents top Commanders-in-Chiefs of our armed forces, because when you have a President who has never been on the battlefield, he tends to muck it up.
It’s no accident that Eisenhower brought forth the longest peacetime in our country’s history. Our founders gave the title of Commander-in-Chief to the executive because Washington had done so much to deserve it. What they didn’t see coming, was a future Barack Hussein Obama.
You know what George Washington would have done to Obama don’t you?
I bet this is just the start…Will we be hearing from more top military men who have served under Obama? Nobody Knows…but we can hope.
I noticed this letter, from a very pissed off veteran, from one of my Glenn Beck emails. The Chief Master Sergeant, would like his passionate letter to Paul Ryan to become viral, so I am doing my part. Feel free to pass it around to everyone. He wrote it after he had gotten a request from Paul Ryan for a donation.
Congressman Paul Ryan
Today at 8:19 AM
Please note that this request by you for a cash donation from me is extremely unfortunate and very ill-timed. You see sir, I am one of the military retirees your “bipartisan” budget just impacted. You and every Republican (both in the House and Senate that voted to pass this travesty betrayed and broke trust with me and everyone like me. You may not know us by name, but we’re the people, Congressman, who answered our Nation’s call, some of us at a very early age to willingly serve YOU and others LIKE YOU so you could safely attend college and pursue your personal ambitions without fear of harm.
You might also want to note that for at least 20 years, my brothers-in-arms answered that call of duty EVERY SINGLE DAY, without fail, without complaint, without enough money to sustain our loved ones we had to leave behind while we DID OUR JOB in every corner of the Earth. And for that service, we were given absolute assurance our so-called retirement benefits would be protected by law. The very law you shattered in your zeal to impress your Democratic cohorts in your back room deal–with the enemy. Yes, I said it. The liberal Democrats are an enemy to the American people and our Nation. Your lack of judgment and eagerness to compromise on the backs of us who protected you is sickening. Congressman, you and every Republican that voted for injuring military retirees have engaged in a complicit, sordid affair with the Democrats who’s objective has always been to dismantle the military. By climbing into their bed on this issue, you have confirmed you are absolutely no better than they and have proven it with your vote.
Congressman Ryan, the audacity which you display is noteworthy, but to unceremoniously snatch earned money from a small group that has added so much more value than the paltry $6B you looked to “save” (which is all smoke and mirrors and you know it), is reprehensible and insulting.
We have, despite the hardships, meager salaries and harsh conditions, have performed with honor and excellence…in silence, which is something most members of Congress have no idea about doing. Our job approval was, is and always be better than yours. We knew our mission and we got it done, then handed it off to a new generation in better shape than we found it.
Your ability to look us in the eye, take money from us (apparently there was ZERO, other source of waste within the federal government that you could have recovered this money from…right, got it), while simultaneously holding your hand out to beg (with passion) for our cash is stunning. Your actions have proven you do not have the tremendous intellect you’ve sold the American people on. I say, with all seriousness, Congressman, what you lack in intellect and spinal rigidity, you make up for in cajones.
I hope you and your cowardly, Republican “colleagues” hear a message from me loud and clear. You will NEVER receive another cent of financial support from me. Further, if you happen to be at a Capitol Hill dinner or at a K Street cocktail party with RNC Chair Reince Priebus, Rep. Ron Barber, Sen. Jeff Flake or Sen. John McCain, I would be honored if you communicate with them that I am launching an effort to ensure NONE of you traitorous “representatives of the people” ever receive another vote from a military retiree. Remove me from your contact lists.
Chief Master Sergeant, USAF (Ret)
Yes, we all care. The video speaks for itself.
Have YOU heard about this? Obama is firing all the top nuclear generals on trumped-up charges. He has also fired 16 Naval commanders. And then there’s that missing nuke.
What missing nuke you say? I don’t know…where is it?
While we are all shouting about losing our health care, maybe we should be watching the left hand of Obama, master of chaos, who took great advantage of Benghazi and the shutdown to get rid of all top commanders who would not obey him.
Obama is driving a death knife into our military. Firing top commanders for daring to be appalled at Obama’s callous sacrifice of our men in Benghazi’s is something we can expect from this egotistical maniac. But firing our top nuclear generals? What? Did they refuse to nuke America if so ordered?
Come on…Obama’s sociopathic nature is naked to the core. If you haven’t seen by now that he really doesn’t like America, and wants to destroy and “transform’ it, then I want to know where you work, because I want to work there too.
He is lining up HIS generals—-
From the Blaze:
“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”
And although I just discovered this bit about some ‘missing’ nukes tonight, evidently some bloggers were trying to get out this impeachable information:
This from therightwingextremist:
Just this week some of our nuclear warheads were moved out of their secret hiding place in a Texas Air Force base (Dyess AFB) …these nukes were taken with no one officially taking responsibility or formal possession of them …these nukes were taken by a black ops team and the only thing that was disclosed was that these nukes were headed for South Carolina- The next day South Carolina US Senator Lindsay Graham gave a speech and threw out as just a for instance that if the USA didn’t bomb Syria for the Israeli’s then it was very possible that Charleston Harbor could be nuked …the timing of Graham’s speech talking about a possible nuclear attack should congress vote no on the Syrian questions, could not be purely coincidence but there is more…
- There is a month-long training exercise scheduled to start any day and go for the next 30 days …what are the odds?
He goes on…..
- Would the USA purposely detonate a nuclear bomb on its own soil against its own people? Isn’t something like this a big enough reason for some honor bound military leader to step forward and spill his/her guts on this whole cooked up fiasco?
The military are now being asked if they would fire on American citizens. That’s a fact being reported everywhere. I suggest they all say —-”Oh sure Chief…You’re the boss!” And when the time comes…and the order comes from up above, don’t do it.
If the tyrant can lie…so can you.
Nobody Knows where the missing nukes have gone to, but Nobody DOES Know that Obama has only just begun to scare us all.
—-Just how long John McCain can keep getting a pass for his rude remarks about Ted Cruz, simply because he was a P.O.W in Vietnam. But in this video, a Marine, takes him to task. And the Marine is right. I don’t know who John McCain is working for, but it’s not the American people.
From Freedom Post:
However, it has been over four years since Sgt. Bergdahl’s June 30, 2009 capture and imprisonment in Afghanistan by a Taliban-affiliated insurgent group. It is time America demanded his release and return to his family.
Many in Congress including Senator John McCain oppose a prisoner exchange to bring Bowe Bergdahl home. Apparently, McCain feels a better deal can be struck with the Taliban. A deal that does not release dangerous terrorists out into the world community. Perhaps McCain forgets the deal he struck with his captors to secure his release. For years, the United States has been releasing Afghan detainees from military prisons in Afghanistan. This has been going on periodically, every year, since Sgt. Bergdahl was captured. So why is Bergdahl not home today? My very real fear is—like so many others—Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may be left behind.
This is one of those occasions that I feel great shame for our country. Great shame. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is our son, America. He deserves better than a politically correct quote form the Secretary of Defense. He sure as hell deserves more attention than President Obama and his press gave to Trayvon Martin.
Bring Sergeant Bergdahl home now.
You would think that John McCain, of all people, would make this a top priority because of what he went through. And the way he handled the answer to the Marine, shows you that John was always an elite snobby rich kid, who cares only for himself. (Hey, I was elected buddy…screw you.) I’m sure John’s egotistical and fraudulent personality was formed long before he was shot down in Vietnam. His luck in life, was being an Admiral’s son.
The Marine is right: by our Constitution, they should all be arrested. And frankly, I think John is not fit for any kind of command, and yet, he says he might run for President again.
I hope he does. I hope…he does. Swift boating will morph into, a much bigger boat—-
I got this last week. Watch how this retired veteran takes care of a clear and present danger.
The people who adopt these dogs after they ‘serve’ their time, should be given tax breaks! Okay. Maybe not. But I’d rather watch this than Nancy Pelosi sending her threats of mass destruction on the TV every hour. This kitten may not be a clear and present danger, but I would beg to differ about Nancy Pelosi.
Chef, who over five years served two tours of duty in Iraq and one in Africa detecting explosives and working as a patrol dog. Today Chef is one of the most popular dogs on the Internet because of a video where he meets a tiny kitten for the first time. Throughout the video’s running time, Chef, ever so carefully, like the meticulous and expertly trained dog he is, investigates this new, curious thing, pawing and sniffing at the feline, and the results are heartwarming.

The gracious amfortas sent me this from Australia. The news is, one of our Marines saved over 100 lives in Kenya at that mall bombing. And I swear to god, nowhere have I heard this reported on any news outlet. All we are hearing is that when the evil Republicans shut down the government the FIRST people who Obama is going to punish is our military, who will NOT get paid, but will have to keep on working.
Miss Lerner of the IRS, WILL get paid, even though she costs good decent Americans a lot of money. And all of Congress will still get paid. And their wives. And the NSA. And the TSA. And the teachers. But all the parks will be closed because they don’t want you on them anyway. (unless of course you are an illegal growing pot.)
What I did hear last night, is that “President” Obama has declared November to be Muslim month, where we should all recognize Islam and Muslims as wonderful people.
American soldiers are the best. And yet, Obama ignores their heroics unless of course, he benefits from their actions.
(Thanks to amfortas)
A former marine emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.
The ex soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday.
With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.
Despite Kenyan police assurances that they had taken control of the building, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 hostages were still being held by a band of attackers, possibly as many as 13.
The former soldier is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire.
A friend in Nairobi said: ‘What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened.
‘He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.’

Nobody Knows:—–why we had another crazy man attack and kill people on another one of our military bases. You can tell by the look on his face that Aaron Alexis was full of hatred and not playing with a full deck. It’s just another mental breakdown shooting out red flags to everyone they meet, and nobody pays any attention to them. Frankly, even if you did report it, (as the police did) nobody is listening:
On August 7, police in Newport, Rhode Island, investigating a harassment complaint at a Marriott hotel encountered Alexis. He told them that an individual “had sent three people to follow him and to talk, keep him awake and send vibrations into his body,” according to a police report. These individuals, Alexis police, had followed him to three hotels in the area — including talking to him through walls and the floor and using “some sort of machine” to send vibrations through the ceiling that prevented him from falling asleep. Police subsequently notified officials at a Navy base in Newport, the police report stated. Officials at Naval Station Newport referred CNN to the FBI on Tuesday when asked about the incident, and the FBI subsequently had no comment on the August police report. A former SEAL says just running Alexis’ fingerprints would have turned up his arrest record.
So…unless you believe that he was a Manchurian candidate, being brainwashed by the CIA to go into the complex and steal state secrets, (And some x-CIA experts will tell you these programs do exist so I do not always count the conspiracy out) you have to accept the fact that Alexis was just another mental health bomb waiting to go off.
Reports are coming in that he felt “discriminated against.”
As a country, we are going to see more of this. As with Columbine, the Colorado theater shooting, Sandy Hook— most of these whacko’s were on some sort of drug.
As a former suffer of depressions, I can tell you the power of drugs are NEVER well monitored, Every time I was given some drug to ‘ease’ my emotional pain, I ended up pitching them all down the toilet. While a violent thought to harm others never entered my brain, I have talked to many a man who has had thoughts of violent crimes while depressed. I often thought the line between men and women in many states of depression was simply testosterone, and culture.
The astute Charles Krauthammer noted tonight on Bill O’Reilly, the voices Alexis were hearing were common signs of schizophrenia. These people are everywhere now, since we no longer have the mental hospitals to take care of them.
What is even more alarming than the fact that some man went on a killing spree, is the very scary fact that he managed to get past all that military security. It seems the “sequester” has cost lives, according to this:
It is my understanding that the IG report indicates the Navy may have implemented an unproven system in order to cut costs,” Turner said. “I also learned that potentially numerous felons may have been able to gain restricted access to several military installations across the country due to insufficient background checks, increasing the risk to our military personnel and civilian employees.”
And so, the conclusion—our government goes to no expense to build a giant surveillance system to log and record every single word made by the whole planet, but what GOOD is it? They obviously aren’t using it. Nobody Knows if it’s mainly for the entranced party to monitor Tea Party people, and sex partners.
This could have been much worse. . Nobody says it, but Aaron Alexis could well have been a terrorist with a more sinister devise than a shotgun.
The NSA can go back, and gather his cell phone calls, but will that bring back any of the people who lost their lives?
Nobody Knows if Alexis was given a pass simply because of the color of his skin, but we do know we will never find out.
After all…the race of all the victims, is not being talked about. Where they all white? And if so, was Aaron’s killing mostly racist?
NOBODY UPDATES: Apparently, Alexis killed two black people….one in the back while he was running away. The other was a woman. So, Jesse Jackson will probably stay out of this one.
None of us know, with all the damage that Obama is doing to the country, if we will be attacked again on 9/11. And tomorrow, because of his colossal mistakes, Americans will be waiting for an attack, which would surely give Obama his go-ahead sign to start another big war in the Middle East.
I saw this commercial on Conservative Video’s and thought of all the 50,000 or so men who suffered debilitating injuries going to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of them were bought home,, and discarded. We’ve all seen these boys in our neighborhoods, trying desperately to hold onto their pride. They are coming home to a country that is falling apart. It’s hard for a anyone to get a job nowadays, let alone a returning veteran with a disability.
It’s one of the reasons, so many of them commit suicide. These men WANT to work. They are proud.
This video expressed to me, even thought it’s a beer commercial, the bravery, the noble courage, the real men of America that serve in our military. Their ‘commander-in-chief’ has taken the treasure of our fine men and women who serve, and treated them basically like garbage. He just signed into law a cut in their pay. But this commercial shows, that we all must reach out to them now, more than ever.
God bless the men and women of our armed forces.
It’s hard being a civilian under Obama, I can’t imagine what it’s like to serve in the military under him…can you?
This week we put Dennis Rodman up against the Pine Bluff Swat Team.
Let’s take Dennis first just because, nobody smokes a cigar in earrings quite like Dennis. It seems Dennis just loves hanging out with his favorite toy boy, Kim Jong Un. Despite the fact that the man is one of the most dangerous psychological maniacs on the planet, Dennis…loves him. And that makes you wonder about the sex between the two, which Dennis is desperately trying to cover up by telling everyone what a good family man Kim Jong Un is. Dennis is also threatening Obama to talk to him about his lover. Wow. Give a gay a match and they torch you with a flame gun every time.
Dennis is the quintessence of the fact that there is an American absurdity when it comes to how sport figures are worshipped, and then they lose all sense of perspective.
Rodman is trying to get a team of black basketball players to go over and play the North Koreans. I want to know just exactly how all those 6’7 black guys are going to LOSE to a bunch of short and starved little North Koreans, who will know, that if they lose, they will be shot?
And then there’s the Swat Team of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, who were SO afraid of a 107-year-old, they bought in the whole 47th tank division, complete with AK-47 machine guns.
PINE BLUFF, Ark. (TheBlaze/AP) — A 107-year-old man is dead after SWAT officers shot back at him during a standoff at a home in the southeast Arkansas city of Pine Bluff, police say.
But friends and fellow church members say that Monroe Isadore was legally blind and nearly deaf and shouldn’t have died that way.
“I’m in shock today,” Larry Smith, who attended church with Isadore at New Direction Baptist, told KLRT-TV.
“He couldn’t hear,” Smith said. “Somebody should’ve told the [police] he couldn’t hear.”
We all know senility comes in different colors, but…the guy with the gun, didn’t actually SHOOT anyone, so why did we have to call a full force military unit in?
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Kim Jong Un—for his bad taste in women.
