Al Gore vs God

This is bouncing around the blogs and I had to take my own shot at it. Al Gore begins quoting Jesus Christ in Luke 12:54 during his speech on climate change--

'And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

"Ye hypocrites"....The Mic fails

Gore keeps on speaking. He finally looks down at the podium to see what's wrong. 

I'm surprised that he's still crowing about climate change since he sold out to a Middle Eastern oil cartel and furloughed all of the climate hippies in his conservation company - and he bought the big mansion in Montecito. And paid off the maid in the hotel in Seattle who he tried to pay to have sexual intercourse with him - but she didn't want to and he tried to force the matter (She characterized his amorous advances as those of a 'crazed poodle' --- you can't make this stuff up).

Benghazi Hearings

Wants to be US Commander-in-Chief and leader of
the free world...
Investors Business Daily posited nine questions that the Congressional Hearings on the Benghazi Massacre should answer. I found these to be comprehensive and genuine answers would go a long way toward bringing closure. I'm simply posting their questions (below) for your consideration. The dead can't get answers for themselves...

1) What was the real purpose of the "special mission" in Benghazi that was so important and timely that Amb. Chris Stevens was sent into this most dangerous Libyan city just as the Red Cross and other countries withdrew? Was it really trans-shipping Libyan weapons to Syrian rebels, a favored cause of Secy. of State Clinton?

2) In this dangerous environment, why were repeated requests by Stevens and others for additional security ignored by Clinton's State Department in the weeks and months leading up to that night? The compound's security was deemed so inadequate it required a special waiver from Washington to continue operation. Who authorized that waiver?

In fact, despite knowledge of at least 10 terrorist training camps in the vicinity, the mission's security was actually decreased the previous month with the removal of a special ops security detail over the protest of its commander? Why?
(Because the SpecOps guys would be witness to what the Ambassador was up to and Secretary Clinton didn't want anything getting out)
3) Why in the world would the mission's local security have been entrusted to a local militia, the 17th of February Martyrs Brigade, with its known ties to al Qaeda affiliate Ansar al-Sharia?

4) We need to clarify this "stand down order" business. Several CIA operatives at the nearby annex say they were prevented from going to the assistance of the embattled mission by a superior named "Bob." State spokeswomen vehemently deny the claim. But in their book -- "13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi" -- the operatives say the 30-minute delay prevented the rescue of Stevens and an aide, Sean Smith.

5) Speaking of rescue, why was none attempted in Benghazi? Why were no ready forces ready for any regional contingency, given the symbolic power of a 9/11 anniversary? And the fact that 12 hours before, a Cairo mob had stormed the U.S. Embassy? Is it true the ready force was "training" in Croatia and told to stay there?

Obama aides say the terrorist attack on the mission did not last long enough for help to arrive. But how would anyone know in the middle of it how long the attack would continue? They had a real-time drone overhead to monitor. And since when do rescues of endangered Americans depend on certainty and pre-arranged time-frames?

6) Where did this cockamamie anti-Islam video tale come from? Clinton cited it as early as 10 p.m. Washington time. She later blamed the "fog of war." But according to her, at the time Benghazi was thought to be a mere protest, not "war" with or without fog. And why in the face of on-site intelligence and media reporting to the contrary did the Obama crowd stick with the fable so long?

7) Acting CIA Director Mike Morrell scrubbed the following Sunday show's talking points for Susan Rice of any reference to terrorists and al Qaeda. Is it as simple as Obama not wanting to mention terrorists running freely in Libya so soon after the Nobel Peace Prize winner's first war, to oust Moammar Gaddafi?

And was Morrell's subsequent consulting job with an outfit closely associated with Clinton's nascent presidential campaign any kind of reward for protecting her department?

8) Was an autopsy performed on Stevens? Why aren't the results public? The implication has been he died from smoke inhalation, but at least one terror website claimed he'd been killed by lethal injection. Was the mission attack perhaps a botched hostage-taking to trade for the imprisoned blind sheik of the first World Trade Center attack?

The State Department credits Good Samaritans with taking Stevens to a health clinic. Seriously? Driving the top American in-country through Ansar al-Sharia checkpoints to a clinic controlled by the same group? And what was promised/paid by whom to whom to retrieve his body the next day and deliver it to a U.S. charter at the Benghazi airport?

9) Finally and most mysteriously, where was the nation's commander-in-chief and what was he doing during this crisis? We get minute-by-minute tick-tocks of his whereabouts and actions during other events, such as the Osama bin Laden assassination.

Clinton said she talked to him early that evening. Then, Poof! Obama disappears. Neither he nor aides have offered any explanation. The next morning, enroute to campaign fundraisers in Las Vegas, Obama appears with Clinton in the Rose Garden to denounce the murders and vow swift justice.

What distraction could Obama have been involved in that's so awful, the president would prefer the people of the United States think their chief executive was asleep at the switch while Americans died?

Maybe he was loaded -- as usual -- and it's no more sinister than that?

War, Credibility and Trouble at Home

President Obama's credibility with his base has been slipping steadily and he's been increasingly relying on the skin tone that he inherited from his father to bridge the gap.

Michael Moore said this of Obama's legacy: "When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: 'He was the first black president.' Okay, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it. That's it, Mr. Obama."

Now, he's trying to dredge up some semblance of credibility as he moves to becoming a "wartime president" and sends troops off to fight the not-Islamic hoard in a not-war. I'm sure that President Obama, a closet Muslim, feels that striking fellow Muslims is somehow wrong. It's easier for him to declare that they are not really Muslims. And if they somehow convince people that they are, they're not as cool of a Muslim as Barack Hussein is - because he works very hard at being cool.

Obama the coward is trying to butch up and show people that he can be tough on radical islam, not just on fellow Americans who disagree with his politics (IRS Scandal). Thus he's characterizing ISIS as a regional threat in the Middle East. No need to look at the mosques in the USA for bad actors. Possibly because that would mean that the FBI and others would start scrutinizing his friends. Now THAT could be embarrassing.

And Jon Stewart has his fun with Barack as well.

Making Muslims - the old fashioned way

Who says that Islam is not merciful? This girl was allegedly immoral and
had her nose cut off in lieu of being stoned to death.

(UK - Daily Mail) The changing face of Britain: A child in Birmingham is now more likely to be a Muslim than Christian. Isn't that special?

An exceptionally naive British official is quoted by the Daily Mail this way: ‘This is one of the most tolerant countries in the world. It will continue to be so, provided we all understand how that depends on respect for the beliefs of others too.’
I guess that Sharia Law will replace English Common Law sooner than later and once 51% of of those living in England are Muslim, it will be the standard, "convert or die" motif that we've seen again and again over the past 1400 years. British women will veil their faces and bodies and will become the chattel of their husbands. How exciting must that be for the women?!! The place will become an Islamic paradise -- like Iran or Yemen, but without oil.

British future:

Syrian girl stoned for 'immoral conduct' with a young man, likely one
of the stone throwers. She said that she turned him down. He accused
her of being a whore.
Islam, by its very nature, will refuse to co-exist once it has the majority. And the sand is running from the top of the hour glass to the bottom for, the British.

Bury me in the Mountains

Songs evoke memories. This one is special to me because a very good friend of mine, who died in the "War on Terror" (that the present regime refers to as a "Foreign Contingency") loved it. No, he wasn't Mexican. He worked for an intelligence agency and spent time in Mexico -- and loved the place like no other. Therefore when I hear the song, I think of friendship, of struggle against a viscous Islamic enemy, and of him, and tough situations overcome. He has a star, now among many stars in the lobby of a building on the south bank of the Potomac.

A group of us held a wake for him and with a few mariachis, we sang this song for him in his favorite restaurant in Mexico City at the conclusion of the gathering. Yes, it was sung by men in their cups, slightly out of tune. But it was to honor a dear friend. I hope that his spirit was not damaged by our shoddy - but heartfelt - rendition.

Mexico lindo y querido (in English)

The voice of my guitar
wants to sing its joy
to my mexican (home)land
when the morning wakes up

I sing to its volcanoes,
its meadows and its flowers
which are like talismans
of the love amongst my loves

My beautiful and beloved Mexico
should I die far from you
let them say I'm asleep
and bring me back to you

Let them say I'm asleep
and bring me back to you
my beautiful and beloved Mexico
should I die far from you

Let them bury me in the mountains
at the foot of the magueyales
and let this soil cover me,
this soil which is a cradle for upright men

The voice of my guitar
wants to sing its joy
to my mexican (home)land
when the morning wakes up

My beautiful and beloved Mexico
should I die far from you
let them say I'm asleep
and bring me back to you

Let them say I'm asleep
and bring me back to you
my beautiful and beloved Mexico
should I die far from you.

Hey Hillary!

Then again, I'm not very 'progressive'.

A failure to study and understand history means that you'll make the same mistakes over and over again. Hillary for President = Hanoi Jane Fonda for President. They're friends, you know. While most of you will say, "that makes perfect sense", its seriously wrong. Her successor as SECSTATE, John (Swiftboat) Kerry is also a close personal friend of Hanoi Jane Fonda from back in the days when he was protesting the war with her.

Can you judge somebody based on their friends?

The Real Justification

The real justification for something called, "Not War", is the panicked concern that the Democratic Party is being slated to lose control of the US Senate, and with it, there will be bill after bill from Congress, headed to President Obama, which he will veto. No more Congressional gridlock.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned Friday on HBO's Real Time that "civilization as we know it would be in jeopardy" if the Republican Party recaptures control of the US Senate later this year.

I hate to rain on dame Nancy's parade, but life outside the beltway hasn't been a high school prom since she ascended to high office.

As a result of the threat to the Democratic Party, brave young men and women will be called on to sally forth and engage in a land war in Asia once again. At the end of the day will it be another useless endeavor - such as the Vietnam War, the Iraq War, etc. have been? 

Sorry if I sound bitter, but I have seen the elephant and have counted coup on the enemy. I have also seen a lot of my friends fail to survive to old age because of it. The flower of America's youth will always step up and take one for the team. In this case the "coach", a weird semi-Muslim, is not worthy to empty an outhouse with a coffee cup. I really hate to see our people die in the effort to support ANYONE's political hubris.
