Are you effin’ serious? Administration forbids Marines from being armed while defending our embassy in Egypt?
U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.
Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit US Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blog spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any US military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.”
Well, I’m sure this whole “unarmed Marines” thingy is just a one-time thing, an aberration, an anomaly. Or not.
Could these b#stards in the Obamanation be any sicker or dumber?

These optics suck, White House! I mean we have 4 Americans who are dead who were butchered and slaughtered because this administration did not have the foresight to fortify these embassies on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. And there he is with all of his fanbois and fangirls in Vegas raising money while they scream ‘I love you!’ in the middle of an international crisis.
But hey, it’s ROMNEY’S STATEMENT that is drawing MSM scrutiny, right? Effin’ lapdog media.
But hey, they “support the troops”, right? From the Navy Times:
On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.
But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships.
While retired Adm. John Nathman, a former commander of Fleet Forces Command, honored vets as America’s best, the ships from the Russian Federation Navy were arrayed like sentinels on the big screen above.
These were the very Soviet-era combatants that Nathman and Cold Warriors like him had once squared off against.
“The ships are definitely Russian,” said noted naval author Norman Polmar after reviewing hi-resolution photos from the event. “There’s no question of that in my mind.”
If you have not yet done so, feel free to go ahead and question their patriotism.
His constituents and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) are mortified that their boy didn’t deliver the goods as well as Bubba did the night before. Some of the biggest B.O. sycophants are disappointed and/or panicked.
A rundown of the reactions here. A handful of excerpts, though:
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: “A Lot Of Stuff We’ve Heard Before.” CNN’S WOLF BLITZER: “Going on to the next chapter right now, Jessica Yellin, our Chief White House Correspondent. You sat with me. We listened together. I thought there would be more specifics. There were a lot of goals expressed, generalities, a lot of stuff we’ve heard before. I didn’t hear any specific new initiative that the President unveiled.” (CNN, 9/6/12)
CBS’ Bob Schieffer: “It Just Didn’t Have That Spark.” SCHIEFFER: “But this as not the kind of speech that Bill Clinton made last night. It just didn’t have that spark.” (CBS, 9/6/12)
ABC News’ Rick Klein: “Strange Silence Prevailing In The Arena.” “Almost no confetti at #DNC2012, and strange silence prevailing in the arena” (Twitter.com, 9/6/12)
The Washington Post’s “The Fix”: “Certainly Not Among The Best He Has Ever Delivered…” “One person you won’t see in winners and losers is President Obama. His speech was certainly not among the best he has ever delivered — the #1 seed in those rankings is his 2007 Iowa Jefferson-Jackson dinner address — and, at times, it felt more like a State of the Union address rather than a convention acceptance speech.” (The Washington Post, 9/6/12)
The Associated Press: “Obama Urged Voters To Stay Patient Even Though His Economic Policies Have Failed To Fully Fix The American Economy.” “Obama urged voters to stay patient even though his economic policies have failed to fully fix the American economy. Once the candidate of hope, Obama’s message was hang in there.” (The Associated Press, 9/6/12)
Nope…no liberal media bias! Excerpt:
Members of the media have apparently been using “fake” names to buy official Obama gear and contribute to the Obama campaign inside the Time Warner Cable Arena where the President is due to speak in a few minutes. During our travels around the arena, Politicker spotted a souvenir stand in one of the press stands selling T-shirts and buttons supporting President Barack Obama, “Democrats Are Hot” bumper stickers and other official Obama merchandise.
The souvenir stand was in a secure area only accessible to those with a media credential and buying campaign gear means contributing to the campaign, so we asked the woman working the cash register whether anyone at the press stand had been making purchases. Her answers were quite surprising.
The woman working at the souvenir stand told us she hadn’t been “too busy” during the day, but had seen business pick up in the past half hour or so. She then asked us whether we wanted to buy anything. When we informed her that our status as a reporter means we don’t buy campaign gear, she suggested a strategy other members of the media have apparently used to pick up their Obama swag.
“Have you ever thought of making up a fake name? That’s what the other guys do,” she said.
DWS explains four different versions on why the Godless party (Democrats) omitted God and Jerusalem from its platform
Why, it’s as if Democrats are liars AND Godless cretins! Summed up best by Allah:
In less than 60 seconds here, you’ve got four lies. One: She says the language was dropped because platforms are long and things get overlooked. True enough, they are long, but you’re kidding yourself if you think the language on Israel isn’t closely scrutinized. If the platform changed from 2008, it changed for a deliberate reason. Two: She says the platform was amended to reflect Obama’s “personal view,” which is a lie by omission. O’s personal view is what it is, but the administration’s official position on this issue is agnostic. Three: She says there was no discord on the floor. Yeah? Who were all those delegates booing then? And four: She says yes, obviously there were two-thirds in favor of adding the language. Again, eyewitnesses at the scene tell a different story. But then, this is Debbie being Debbie. Whereas other top flacks try to twist facts and shade the truth, she’ll tell you straight to your face that you didn’t just see and hear what you’ve seen and heard 20 times on cable news and YouTube this afternoon. That’s how you get to be chair of the DNC and a member of Congress instead of some no-name spokesman somewhere.
The left is impervious to both shame and facts.
Anyone seen this movie yet? If so, what do you have to say about it? Say as much or as little as you like.
A tribute to the late Senator Ted Kennedy, who killed a woman with his car and let her die in a slow, torturous watery tomb as his pickled #ss wandered up and down the road, pondering his political future. Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment. Then again, so was Kennedrunk. Anywho, Teddy K also sexually accosted a waitress with Chris Dodd (Google “waitress sandwich Dodd Kennedy” if you don’t know).
Bill Clinton, a womanizing lout who raped Juanita Broaddrick.
Yet it’s Mitt Romney and the Republicans who have declared a “war on women”? Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
Irony: it’s not just for breakfast anymore.
Touré Neblett, a co-host of The Cycle on MSNBC, is garnering criticism from pro-life advocates today after sending out a re-tweet on Twitter encouraging women to get abortions in case Mitt Romney defeats President Barack Obama in November.
“Girls, get your abortions NOW in case the Republicans win,” the re-tweeted message said.
Please stop calling them “pro-choice”. They’re “pro-abortion”, pure and simple. They do NOT want you to choose life. They want you to choose infanticide, period.
The eight states whose residents gave the highest share of their income — Utah, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Idaho, Arkansas and Georgia — all backed McCain in 2008. Utah leads charitable giving, with 10.6 percent of income given.
And the least generous states — Wisconsin, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire — were Obama supporters in the last presidential race. New Hampshire residents gave the least share of their income, the Chronicle stated, with 2.5 percent.
Liberals equate paying taxes with charity. Uh, wrong. Taxes are not voluntary. Charitable giving is. Liberals are far more generous with other people’s money, not so much when it comes to their own.
A random act of journalism (or “even a blind squirrel finds an acorn occasionally”): Blitzer torches DWS on Ryan Medicare lie!
Whoa…is this really Wolf Blitzer? How did this make it past CNN’s editors? Great analysis here. Watch the nagging mare stammer after briefly conceding Wolf is right, around the 3:45 mark. Pure comedy gold!
Video and partial transcript at Newsbusters. It’s brief, so check it out. Takeaway line, though:
Now, nobody in the media seems to want to come to grips with the fact that the Obama economic policy is a disaster for the poor. Look at the unemployment rate for black teenagers. Look at the unemployment rate for Latino teenagers. At what point do we hold the president accountable for a policy which is crippling the poor in America by crushing the economy under big government?
Ryan and Romney represent a different approach. And I think there’s this mantra you guys almost sound like you’re an extension of the Obama campaign. The Ryan/Romney plan empowers middle class Americans to get a job. When they get a job, their income goes up. They pay more taxes. They are independent. They’re able to live their own lives.
As for CNN: Nope…no liberal media bias!
Good? Bad? Pros? Cons?
What say you?
Despicable Obama ad blaming Romney for killing a worker’s wife is so bad that…wait…even MSNBC slams him?
Dude, you know you have jumped the shark when the mouthbreathing fellatrix lineup at MSDNC thinks you’ve gone too far.
By now, many of you have seen how Brian Ross of ABC, with an assist from former Clintonite George Snuffalupugus, committed arguably the worst cast of journalistic malpractice since Dan Rather’s forged memo story cost him his job. Immediately after the Colorado movie shooting, Ross found a guy with the same name as the shooter on a Colorado Tea Party Facebook page. Turns out that James Holmes isn’t that uncommon of a name and the shooter and “Liker” of the FB page weren’t the same guy. Go figure.
Anywho, this isn’t the first time the MSM has attempted to paint the Tea Party or conservative groups with the violent brush. There are at least six verifiable cases of the MSM employing this shameful tactic…and in every single instance, the MSM was 100% wrong. Excerpt:
After James “The Joker” Holmes committed unspeakable acts of violence at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last Friday, ABC’s Brian Ross — in what can only be described as a sloppy act of journalism — practically jumped at the chance to tie the shooter to the Tea Party.
“There is a Jim Holmes of Aurora, CO, uh Paige, on the Colorado Tea Party site as well, talking about him joining the Tea Party last summer. We don’t know if this is the same Jim Holmes, but it is Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado,” Ross said.
Problem: Ross and ABC never investigated the connection. Had they checked their facts, they would’ve discovered that the 52-year-old Tea Partier was not, in fact, the same man arrested by Aurora police that morning. But that didn’t stop Ross. He went on national television and casually tossed out the idea that the Tea Party might somehow be connected to the “Batman” massacre.
Of course, ABC and Ross have apologized for their sloppy reporting, but the speculation remains: Somebody, whether it was Ross or his producers, wanted to tie the conservative grassroots movement to the nightmarish events that took place that night.
But you know what? Conservatives should be used to this at this point. After all, it’s not like Ross’ undisciplined act of media malpractice is a first. Indeed, the media has a long and illustrious history of trying to tie acts of psychopathic violence to either the Tea Party or some other conservative group or personality.
Lawyer and Blogger Gabriel Malor has an op-ed in the New York Post that includes a sampling of some of the moments when the media, without any sort of evidence or proof, has falsely connected conservatism to random and senseless acts of violence. We’ve decided to pick six of them and go into detail.
You MUST read the whole thing, especially to be reminded of the specific cases where the MSM got it wrong. Yet they keep doing it!
This is what we’re up against, folks. A state-run MSM that has gone from reporting to advocacy in a couple of generations. Fortunately, we have the alternative media to call them to the carpet, and we will continue to expose them as the leftist hacks that they are.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
If, by “worked”, he means that he meant to destroy the American economy, then I’d have to agree with him.
Thanks to George for alerting me to this…LOL!
It’s about friggin’ time.
For those of you on the left, that means the poll sampled 9% more Democrats than Republicans. Which is fascinating, considering that the Big Blue Wave of 2008 showed Democrats outnumbering Republicans at the polls by 7%. In other words, this new poll from the comPost samples an electorate that is MORE Democratic than the biggest Democratic wave EVER…and the best Obama can do with a 9% advantage in poll sampling is a TIE.
I normally don’t get too caught up in polls this far out. After all, McCain was doing well against Obama at this time in 2008, and Carter was leading Reagan at this point in 1980, according to the polls. We all know how both of those turned out. But I do find polls like this one interesting, where they sample in such a way as to get the results that they seek. Although I’m sure the comPost was hoping that a D+9 poll would have yielded better results for their boy.
As for the comPost: Nope, no liberal media bias!
Obama 2008: adding $4 trillion in debt in two terms unpatriotic. Obama 2012: adding $5+ trillion in one term…look, shiny object!
I question his patriotism. Hey, I’m only using HIS own definition!
Obama chief of staff: ObamaCare not a tax, even though our own attorney argued that it was and SCOTUS ruled that it was.
Chris Wallace leads along the poor schmuck nicely, forcing the guy to basically say “Our own solicitor general argued that ObamaCare’s individual mandate is a tax, and SCOTUS agreed…but hey, lawyers say all kinds of crazy things that aren’t true, so don’t read anything into it!” Um…yeah.
Interesting analyses, from many different sources. Excerpts here, and you really should check them out.
Essentially, conservative pundits are wondering that while the ObamaCare ruling was a short-term win for Chairman Zero, maybe Roberts’ rejection of the Commerce Clause being used to regulate economic inactivity (which lower courts ruled was valid) will prevent future Congresses from trying to use that clause to expand the power of the federal government and thus advance the cause of limited government. Perhaps that cause, plus the outrage from the ruling which will galvanize the conservative base to rally around Romney (which they may not have otherwise done), will put Romney and Republicans in charge…or so the thinking goes. And if Romney and Republicans take control, they will definitely repeal ObamaCare…which means that ObamaCare got repealed PLUS the Court will have prevented similar abuse of the Commerce Clause in future sessions.
Anywho, that’s the school of thought…or spin, depending on how you look at it. What do YOU think?
Even though the administration won on three of four points in its lawsuit against AZ for the state’s criminal immigration law, Team B.O. is bent that the Court allowed the profiling aspect to remain. So, naturally, Chairman Zero will honor the rule of law and assist AZ in any way possible.
The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.
That means police statewide can immediately begin calling to check immigration status — but federal officials are likely to reject most of those calls.
This authoritarian jack#ss has GOT to go come November.
In other breaking news, water is wet. Excerpt:
The Obama Record: The most frightening aspect of this president may not be his radical ideology but his rank dishonesty in selling that ideology. Now he’s been caught lying about family racism.
In “Dreams from My Father,” his 1995 memoir, Obama used the story of his paternal grandfather’s imprisonment and torture at the hands of British colonists in Kenya as an example of white cruelty. He claimed Hussein Onyango Obama was unjustly detained for six months before being released a crippled, lice-ridden “old man.”
In fact, none of it is true, according to Washington Post editor and biographer David Maraniss, who traveled to Kenya to investigate the tale. His grandfather was not detained or beaten by his “white rulers,” as Obama, writing as a 34-year-old lawyer, claimed.
This is only the latest example of a growing body of fabrications, embellishments and outright lies told by this president, who has a real and possibly pathological problem with the truth.
Stacked up, his whoppers would make even Bill Clinton blush. …
There is a laundry list of lies, including one I mentioned leading up toThe One’s
coronation campaign about how Selma got his parents together…despite the fact they met several years before Selma and he himself was born four years before Selma! Anywho, the point is that he must lie in order to sell his radical leftist agenda, which is as popular as herpes.
I didn’t think we’d ever see as big of a liar in the Oval Office as BJ Clinton. But wow…this guy’s a real piece of work.
