Former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel is apparently the prospective Obama nominee to replace Leon Panetta as the Secretary of Defense. Earlier this week my daughter Eliana reported how he has been lobbying for a senior position in the administration. With Chuck Hagel at Defense and John Kerry at State, we would have a one-two punch aimed squarely at our own head.

Fairly unusual article, it provides data to allow you to draw your own conclusion.

My recollection of Hagel is that he was an angst-filled, sort of anti-american, conflicted over the vietnam war and his service there.
President Zero is putting together quite a team, hey?

All indications here are that Chuck likes the burka. He looks like Morsi, grizzled and gruff. Being Obama´s pick also confirms that he would be the worst choice for the country. Defense or Dhimmitude department? Muslims are coming out of fhe closet.

Hagel would fit perfectly with Kerry and Obama. They are all terribly unfunny jokes.

NY Times explains why Obama wants Hagel - "Mr. Hagel voted for the resolution that authorized Mr. Bush to take military action in Iraq, but he soured on the war. In a Senate hearing in 2007, he denounced Mr. Bush’s plan to send more troops to Baghdad as “the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since Vietnam.’´ He also co-sponsored a resolution with two Democratic senators, Carl Levin of Michigan and Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware, that declared the increase to be not in the national interest"

Hagel can be Flip with Kerry as Flop to prove that two wrongs rarely get it right.

Hagel will gut DoD while Kerry guts our alliances.

Well, more than half the voters in this country knew full well what kind of a President they reelected! We should no be all surprised when he installs like-minded, anti-American MarxistCommunists in these critical positions. I fear this country is going to reap the whirlwind over this foolish election!

A wise dictator neglects the enthusiastic good will of the military at his own considerable peril.

I´d rather it not come to that.

Just found this at Breitbart´s site:

"Hagel sits on the board of a bank that is under investigation for allegedly violating United States sanctions on Iran."

..Germany´s Deutsche Bank, is being investigated for alleged violations "of a trade embargo on Iran´s oil and energy sector."

Guess we will have to allow more young men to die in a "sons of Hagar" war or go into depression for our Republic to wake up. If we do not come back to our beginnings we will be toast on the pages of history. Sorry to be so pessimistic but there are not enough conservative Senators to vote against these two traitors!

I think Hagel was always a fake republican in order to get elected in his state. His true colors came out when he attacked Bush.Both these clowns are anti-war which the left has to love.

Chuck Hagel is a RINO who would attempt to give President Obama the political cover that he needs to transform the military into a very limited fighting force in the future.

Hagel has been lobbying for a job with the Obama Administration since that crew was created.

Recently when liberal Democrat Bob Kerrey, a New York city resident for more then the last decade went back to Nebraska, at the behest of Harry Reid, in an attempt to win and save an open US Senate seat for the liberal Democrats, Hagel made a number of television commercials claiming to be a lifelong Republican who was endorsing Kerrey over the Republican candidate Deb Fischer.

The people of Nebraska realized that if Kerrey were elected, that he would immediately return to live in New York city, essentially giving the State of New York three liberal Democrat Senators, with Nebraska, for all intents and purposes, being left with only one US Senate seat.

Kerrey lost the election by over 15 points to Fischer who has always lived in Nebraska. Apparently Kerrey has already returned to New York city.

The Benghazi scandal was and is shocking, and the Justice Department assault on the free press, in which dogged reporters are tailed like enemy spies, is shocking. Benghazi is still under investigation and someday someone will write a great book about it. As for the press, Attorney General Eric Holder is on the run, and rightly so. They called it the First Amendment for a reason. But nothing can damage us more as a nation than what is happening at the Internal Revenue Service. Elite opinion in the press and in Washington doesn´t fully understand this.

The Real Danger From the Fiscal Cliff

Americans are told that they face a fiscal cliff if automatic spending cuts and tax increases occur at the end of the year.I´m not in favor of jumping off a cliff, but the logic of the proprosed threat needs to be questioned. The fiscal cliff narrative assumes that spending cuts are bad for the ecconomy. It follows then, that more spending (and therefore more government debt) are good for the economy.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
