John McCain Useful Idiot

I suppose it never dawned on Senator Maverick that the Jihadists might lie to him.

Via Daily Caller:

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain hotly disputed a study claiming that at least half of Syria’s rebels are radical jihadis, repeatedly exclaiming “Not true, not true!”

“Frankly, I just disagree,”McCain told the Council on Foreign Relations audience, challenging the contention by defense consultancy IHS Jane’s that “the insurgency is now dominated by groups with at least an Islamist viewpoint of the conflict.”

“There’s about 70 percent still who are Free Syrian Army,” McCain said, flipping on its head the consulting firm’s research showing that just 30 percent are fighting for secular values.

McCain has frequently called for an increase in arms shipments to rebels groups fighting the Assad regime, and on Tuesday evening he sought to diminish concerns that these arms may one day be turned against the United States or its allies.

“The point, I think, that you and others are missing,” he told the questioner, “[is that] Syria is a moderate nation. Syria has the highest literacy rate of any nation in the Middle East. They are not going to submit to a jihadis or al-Qaida group governing them. They will not.”

“That’s a really a convenient cop-out to say, ‘Oh, we don’t know who they are,’” he continued angrily. “I know who they are. I was in Syria and I met them.”

Yep, you met them, and I am sure they were completely open and honest right Senator? I mean they would most assuredly never just tell you what you wanted to hear.

 

House votes to defund Obama’s back door Dream Act

Good for them, I wonder how long until Senator McCain is bashing them as wacko birds over this

The House of Representatives voted 224–201 Thursday morning to deny funding for the Obama administration’s controversial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. The policy, which was implemented via executive order in June 2012, effectively assumes the enactment of the DREAM Act, legislation that has failed to pass Congress on multiple occasions, and has raised concerns about executive overreach:

Republicans have argued that these orders amount to the selective enforcement of U.S. immigration laws that discourages enforcement against children who were brought to the United States illegally, or illegal immigrant adults who are not in any legal trouble. Many Republicans have dubbed Obama’s orders as “administrative amnesty.”

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) sponsored the amendment to the 2014 Department of Homeland Security spending bill, and called for its passage in late Wednesday debate by saying Obama’s orders — also known as the Morton memos — violate the Constitution.

“The point here is … the President does not have the authority to waive immigration law, nor does he have the authority to create it out of thin air, and he’s done both with these Morton memos in this respect,” King said.

President Obama works for us, and is bound by the Constitution. Facts he chooses to ignore. 

 

If I were president……..

I have stated before that I would have, as president, a very distinct stance on using our military. I would add to Teddy Roosevelt’s “walk softly and carry a big stick” line. My addition would be, and when we use that stick, it will be in such devastating fashion that no one will ever think of attacking, or threatening us, or our allies again. I thought of this this morning after reading this at Weasel Zippers

SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korea threatened the United States on Thursday with a preemptive nuclear strike, raising the level of rhetoric while the U.N. Security Council considers new sanctions against the reclusive country.

North Korea has accused the United States of using military drills inSouth Korea as a launch pad for a nuclear war and has scrapped the armistice with Washington that ended hostilities in the 1950-53 Korean War.

North Korea, which has one major ally, neighboring China, threatens the United States and its “puppet”, South Korea, on an almost daily basis.

“Since the United States is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to preemptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest,” the North’s foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

Now, I doubt the North Koreans could hit a bull in the ass with a handful of rice, but, this is a direct threat to both our nation and South Korea. So, what would I do in response? Well, North Korea has air bases, naval bases, and other military posts. I would, how should I put this, eliminate the biggest one they had. This would send them a message. That message would be, we erased your largest military post for simply threatening us, think what actually attacking us would cost you?

Is that over the top? Maybe, but, face it, having the biggest stick only matters if everyone else knows you will USE THAT STICK, and North Korea and other enemies do not believe we will use the stick we hold.

Thoughts?

 

When I say every difference between the Left and the Right is about Collectivism vs Individualism…………….

This is what I am talking about. Read as the COMMUNIST PARTY defines rights while cheering the Obama gun grab

In the wake of the Newtown massacre, polls show the great majority of Americans are now insisting that the ability to live free from the fear or threat of gun violence is a fundamental democratic right – one that far supercedes any so-called personal gun rights allegedly contained in the Second Amendment.

In fact, the right-wing extremists opposing all efforts to curb gun violence are the same forces that rallied behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, hoping to undermine every other democratic right as well as the living standards of workers and ordinary Americans. It is for that reason, as well as the need to protect public safety, that the same coalition of labor and its allies that worked so hard and effectively to re-elect President Barack Obama must now go all-out to back his common sense proposals for gun law reform.

As Obama has charged, the extremists recklessly “gin up fear” that the government is coming to take away hunting rifles and personal weapons owned for legitimate self-defense. Led by the hate-mongering leadership of the National Rifle Association, they use a totally fraudulent and only very recent interpretation of the Second Amendment which they falsely claim as necessary for protecting every other freedom contained in the Bill of Rights.

See there it is highlighted in RED. They favor collective rights and abhor individual rights, Natural Rights as Franklin called them. Let me put this as clearly as I can. Collectivists are evil. they seek to deny every American the rights they are Created with. They seek to place government, all-powerful, centralized government, in a position to give and take away rights as it sees fit. The Left seeks to replace the American ideal that our rights are from God, and that those rights CANNOT be restricted by or taken away by government. Understand the Left will lie cheat, and steal to achieve their nefarious ends. Their morality is not defined by religious faith, or by common respect for the rights of others. Their morality is defined only by achieving their ends. No matter the cost.

 

 

Maybe we could get Obama to leave our guns alone if we promised to convert and join the Muslim Brotherhood?

It is a question I hate asking, but, since this IS what I do, I have to ask it. Why do Obama, and his fellow Democrats Liberals Leftists want to disarm us, and yes, that is their ultimate goal, while they are arming the Muslim Brotherhood? Daniel Greenfield has an excellent piece up at FrontPageMag.com you need to read!

While the White House was busy drafting proposals to ban assault rifles, the last of the regulations imposed on Saudi travel to the United States after September 11 were being taken apart. While some government officials were busy planning how to disarm Americans, other officials were negotiating the transfer of F-16s and Abrams tanks to Muslim Brotherhood-run Egypt.

Obama is unwilling to trust Americans with an AR-15, but is willing to trust a genocidal terrorist group with Abrams tanks and F-16 jets. The F-16’s M61 Vulcan cannon can fire 6,000 rounds a minute and the 146 lb warhead of its HARM missiles can do a lot more than put a few dents in a brick wall. The Abrams’ 120 mm cannon can penetrate 26 inches of steel armor making it a good deal more formidable than even the wildest fantasies of San Francisco liberals about the capabilities of a so-called “assault rifle.”

While Obama has not been willing to respect the Constitution of the United States and its Bill of Rights, he was willing to arm a terrorist group whose motto is, “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, Jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal.” If a High School student wrote that on his Facebook page, he would be in police custody within the hour, but an international organization and national government that trades in such rhetoric gets devastating firepower from our government… free of charge.

In addition to giving the Hezbollah-run government of Lebanon two hundred M113 Armored Personnel Carriers, Obama deliberately turned a blind eye while Al Qaeda and other Islamist rebel groups in Libya received arms shipments from Qatar. Those weapons included a good deal more firepower than anything you can buy at Wal-Mart and later made their way to Mali and Syria. More weapons made their way into the hands of Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Whether any of these weapons were used in the assault on the Benghazi mission is unknown, but entirely possible.

Read the rest, it will sicken and outrage you. I leave you with this from Greenfield, it sums it up quite well

There is nothing in the Bill of Rights that says you cannot profile Muslim travelers in airports. To use the same argument as the gun controllers, airports and airplanes didn’t even exist during the time of the Founding Fathers; therefore they couldn’t have possibly foreseen their existence or applied any limitation to any violation of civil rights that can take place in them.

The murder of 3,000 people did not in any way make it acceptable to single out a Muslim for special attention, despite the laws of probability, logic and common sense. That would be an overreaction. It would mean punishing large numbers of people and that would be unacceptable, no matter how many lives it might save. But depriving millions of Americans of the protection of the 2ndAmendment after several shootings carried out by mentally ill teenagers is, for some reason, not an overreaction.

It’s not acceptable to single out the relatively small number of Muslims in the United States to save the lives of thousands, but it is imperative that we single out tens of millions of Americans to save a smaller number of people. The public safety logic of this does not hold up according to the numbers, the ethics or the law.

At a certain point folks, we have to decide if the Left in this country is this stupid, or if there is a deliberate purpose behind these actions

 

And we thought Bill Clinton was a masterful liar

Of all the headlines that came out about Obama’s gun control Kabuki Theater today, THIS is the one that might make my skull collapse. Via Steve at MCT

Leader of Fast and Furious wants to study how guns get into hands of criminals

And he said it with a straight face folks! Of course, the media has pretty much blacked out Fast and Furious, like they blacked out Benghazi. And Obama’s radical ties, and his radical church, and so on and so on. They make such useful idiots for Obama!

Nebraska students to learn about American principles, Leftists horrified

Of course, they will also be told that global warming, or climate change is a theory, which it is, and urged to explore it themselves, in other words, to think. That has the Left outraged! School is not for thinking, or encouraging kids to evaluate anything. I mean you teach kids to think and the next thing you know, they are doing crazy things. Like thinking before voting.

Students in Nebraska are getting new standards for social studies curriculum, after weeks of intense debate. The state Board of Education reached agreement on two items of controversy this week: whether to include “American exceptionalism” and how to teach about climate change, the Lincoln Journal Star reports.

The fight had been over whether to explicitly teach the idea of American exceptionalism, as one board member proposed, and whether to include information about climate change, which the current standards do not mention. The board approved the standards after making some changes:

The words “American exceptionalism” do not appear in the final draft, but the concept does. In the sixth- through eighth-grade U.S. history standards, one of the “indicators” — examples of what to teach — is the “unique nature of the creation and organization of the American Government, the United States as an exceptional nation based upon personal freedom, the inherent nature of citizens’ rights and democratic ideals.”

This is what the Left hates apparently examples of what to teach — is the “unique nature of the creation and organization of the American Government, the United States as an exceptional nation based upon personal freedom, the inherent nature of citizens’ rights and democratic ideals.”

In other words they are going to teach about the founding, the government, the, GASP, constitution, and that there is, brace yourself, liberty in America! Come on man! The Left is trying to turn out good little brain dead Marxists, and Nebraska schools might get in the way of that! Oh, but it gets worse for the Left.

Likewise, climate change appears in the sixth- through eighth-grade geography standards, but is presented as a theory, not as fact, asking students to evaluate “recent global climate change theories, and evidence that supports and refutes such theories.”

What? You cannot tell these kids that a theory is a theory! And instructing them to evaluate evidence on BOTH sides of the debate? OUTRAGEOUS! How dare Nebraska encourage open mindedness. I mean the Left has been trying to educate indoctrinate our kids for decades now. Stories like this scare them. Just peruse the comments at the link, the stupidity and hate will stun you
