Waving aside any pretense of diversity, invoking seldom heard themes of merit and competence, President Barack Obama is about to appoint to his cabinet three of the most naive older white guys that ever walked up the Capitol steps. For an administration that has made “diversity” a worn shibboleth for almost every other series of appointments, why this sudden departure from generating a photo-op like a Benetton ad of Christmas past? Were there no “wise Latina women,” “academically distinguished African-Americans,” or “experienced white women” available? What is it that makes these three candidates so phenomenal as to
Comments: What a surprise. s/o Islam´s apologists are all that are allowed in the 0bama regime. I´ve never been more fearful for our security. Their political correctness is going to get us killed.
ive been saying this since 2007..im sure most of you have been also...so what do we do?? fight like hell...to the VERY BITTER end...that is my plan...to die free...only to die free..and bow to no one but Father God!!! amen...and pass the ammunition...
It goes further than Kerry, Hagel and Brennan. There´s Lew, the man of 1000 faces:
Considering John O Brennan is nominated to head the CIA, Chuck Hagel is nominated to head the Department of Defense and John Kerry is nominated to be the next Secretary of State. It may seem odd to align the Treasury Secretary pick with them. Odd that is, until you remember:
Prior to his position as President Obama’s Chief of Staff, and prior to him being Obama’s Budget Director (comical considering Obama has never had a budget) Jack Lew served as State Department Director under Hillary Clinton. It was Lew’s influence that shaped and positioned the failed Obama foreign policy toward the Middle East. Specifically toward Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya during their upheavel, the Arab Spring. How has that worked out for our interests ?

A few days ago Melanie Phillips wrote a great blog piece on this topic, a perfect complement to the above article. It contains a great deal of important information supporting and enhancing Miller´s work:
Yes, this administration is the enemy. They will continue to embrace Islam and denigrate our Constitution. I am not surprised by any of it. This is why it was SOOOO important to beat him in Nov, no matter how much you disliked Romney. Sorry to beat a dead horse, but elections have consequences. It is a travesty that Romney barely received as many votes as McCain in ´08. Romney would have been a great president and would have nominated people like John Bolton to his cabinet. Can you imagine how strong that administration would have been?!! We are in for a long, dark 4 years and haven´t even come close to seeing the worst of it. Gun control, amnesty, 401 K grab, and much, much more. My big concern is will conservatives be able to unite and rally a comeback?
He´s not that naiive, he just hates us that much. He has an grotesquely swollen opinion of his inteligence; like all others like him, he´s too stupid to realize he´s not making friends with those people, they´d just as soon kill him as the rest of us.
I am saying again, impeach Obama now for his breach of the Constitution. Have a trial in the Senate, with evidence presented. Let them acquit him. Impeach him again, on another charge(there are many) and have another Senate trial. Shut this mess down.
Call it apologists or more Taquiyah, however one wants to couch it. The shh shh shooing of any mention of Islam is downright comical: "Workplace violence"; "not optimal"; etc. This could be a sequence to the old Mad Magazine spy vs spy, where perhaps one spy tries to convince the other he didn´t lob a bomb. "Oh noooooo-that was just a man-made disaster at worst; Tet; New Years gone amok maybe but not t t t t errror....what is it called again?".
#14 is right: It´s disappointing how all of DC seems to sit on their hands with all the unconstitutional, illegal, unpatriotic, foolish actions Obama takes. He isn´t really helping the nation, he´s dismantling it piece by piece as politicians sit silently and screwing everyone over with inflation(worsened by his printing money at will) and non stop taxes, regulation. Oh yeah he´s a grrreat president alright. /s off.
#1 - so many of my friends and I feel the same. At church this morning, one of my conservative buddies extended his hand to shake mine and said: "hi, we are still free". At first I didn´t understand him, but he said that it´s the new way to greet fellow patriots.
It´s kind of like the greeting the "underground" Christians gave to each other after Jesus´ death/resurrection with the sign of the fish. The first person would draw the top part of a fish and the second person, if he were a Christian, would finish the fish by connecting the top by drawing the under side of a fish. I´ve often wondered if we may soon have to speak or sign in code to fellow believers. It seems it may be coming to that - at least for the Constitutionalists among us.
#18 - Freemasons in Nazi Germany were forced to recognize each other by wearing a sprig of edelweiss in their lapels, as any other sign was illegal. If asked, the reply was "nur eine blume," only a flower.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
