Obama administration declares: ‘we have
no greater ally than France’. What
about Britain, Canada and Israel?

Telegraph [UK], by Nile Gardiner

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/21/2012 3:19:40 AM

According to a recent poll conducted by Rasmussen, the American public sees Canada (93 percent support), and Britain (90 percent support), as America’s top two allies. Israel comes in third with 74 percent support. France trails behind on 69 percent. That’s not how the Obama administration sees it, however. In an interview with L’Express (hat tip: Julian Pecquet, The Hill), Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano told her French audience that “we have no greater partner than France, we have no greater ally than France,” in an effort to convince them that Washington had not been hacking into

The French quote simply backs up Gardiner´s translation.

The moron running France now is every bit the left wing stooge Obama is and he doesn´t even try to hide it. He was elected the same way Obama was with a minority,majority.People think that him and Obama can create money out of thin air and solve all their problems. The hell with reality getting in the way.

I have to congratulate the French for standing up against gay marriage though.

The criminal and paranoid Obama admin. will spy and hack anybody at the drop of a hat. Having blackmail material is always handy. Maybe they used blackmail on Sarkosy to bomb Libya,you never know.

There is a funny Youtube out there of zero meeting with 8-10 leaders of various countries, in every instance he told them they were our ´greatest ally´ and were ´pulling above their weight´, it was compiled by a Swedish newsman, I believe. Wish I had saved it. If he was just a moron we could survive but we are up against evil.

The odd thing is that of all the older nations nations, I do not believe that we have never been at war with France. Even during the Napoleonic Wars, where we got caught in the crossfire, we were attacked by Britain (War of 1812). And we fought briefly with Canada.

NBC is under fire after one of its reporters questioned bronze medal winning skier Bode Miller so much about the death of his brother he began to sob uncontrollably. Correspondent Christin Cooper interviewed Miller just moments after he finished third in the Super G fnal, making him both the most medaled skier in history and the oldest person to win an alpine medal at the Games. [Snip] Miller was the first to bring up his brother, Chilly, a snowboarder who died in April from a seizure, but Cooper continued to push to the point that he had to walk away.

One of the Met Office’s most senior experts yesterday made a dramatic intervention in the climate change debate by insisting there is no link between the storms that have battered Britain and global warming. [Snip] Professor Collins told The Mail on Sunday: ‘There is no evidence that global warming can cause the jet stream to get stuck in the way it has this winter. If this is due to climate change, it is outside our knowledge.’ His statement carries particular significance because he is an internationally acknowledged expert on climate computer models and forecasts, and his university post is jointly funded

About 100,000 utility customers have awoken to a fifth day without power in South Carolina. Most of them lost power Wednesday or early Thursday when an ice storm swept across southern and eastern parts of the state. Power crews have been out since working 16-hour shifts to try to get the electricity back on. Sunday morning, the state´s 20 electric cooperatives, serving mostly rural areas, had 69,000 customers still without power. South Carolina Electric & Gas reported 22,700 outages and Duke Energy still had 8,400 customers without power. At the peak of the storm, about 350,000 customers lost power across

Hundreds of British jihadis have returned from fighting in Syria, sparking a terror alert in Britain. Senior security officials have said that around 250 British based ´extremist tourists´ have returned home, and are now suspected of wanting to carry out attacks here. The figure is five times higher than previously thought and includes several ´veterans´ who have fought in Afghanistan and Pakistan. MI5 and police have already intercepted an alleged serious plot by jihadis returning from the war torn region last Autumn. They were said to be planning a Mumbai-style gun attack on civilians in a crowded place, possibly London.

Paratrooper Conrad Lewis and the mongrel dog he adopted on patrol were constant companions amid the dangers of Afghanistan’s Helmand province. Such was their attachment that when Private Lewis was killed by a sniper’s bullet, his grieving family did all they could to arrange for the animal to be brought back to the UK to live with them. [Snip] The charity, called the Nowzad Dogs Animal Shelter after the Afghan town in which it was founded by a Royal Marine, runs the only dog refuge operating in Afghanistan, taking in hundreds of the country’s stray and abandoned pets.

UK weather: it´s not as weird

Inevitably, in the wake of all these dramatic storms and floods, the usual suspects, eagerly abetted by the BBC, Channel 4 News and Sky, piled in to claim that the latest “extreme weather events”--coupled with blizzards in 49 of the 50 American states--are clear evidence of man-made global warming. At their forefront, proclaiming that “all the evidence suggests there is a link to climate change”, was that arch-climate proponent Dame Julia Slingo, chief scientist at the Met Office; that same Met Office that, back in November, was predicting that “precipitation” for the three months between December and February was likely

British people are at their best when the chips are down--and the last few weeks have sorely tested us. The floods have brought misery to vast swathes of the country, sabotaging railways, cutting off power and leaving whole villages stranded in water. [Snip] They have done a remarkable job. Take the marvellous Flooding on the Levels Action Group. Composed of volunteers who could not bear to see their neighbours suffer, they have helped to distribute torches, blankets, food and more than 100 tons of sandbags. Their most impressive display of coordinated action was the evacuation of 850 cows from flooded

Online trolls have serious personality issues such as Machiavellianism, one of the biggest studies into trolling has found. Researchers say that online commenters display traits that are Narcissistic, psychopathic, and sadistic and the worse the problems, the longer the person spent online. They found the most common trait was to exhibit sadistic behaviour. [Snip] They said the trolls displayed what is known as the ´Dark Tetrad´ of personality in two tests developed. ´Both studies revealed similar patterns of relations between trolling and the Dark Tetrad of personality: trolling correlated positively with sadism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism, using both enjoyment ratings and

Snow and ice weary southerners received another jolt Friday night when an earthquake struck the region. The 4.1-magnitude quake was centered in Edgefield, South Carolina, but was also felt in North Carolina and Georgia--it occurred at 10.23p and lasted about 10 seconds, according to witnesses. [Snip] Though minor in scope, USGS Geophysicist Dale Grant called the event a ‘large quake for that area.’ Despite being large for the area, 4.1-magnitude quakes do not often cause significant damage. It did knock out land line phones in at least one area of Edgefield, a local told Fox Carolina.

A growing group of Ted Cruz’s Republican Senate colleagues are infuriated with his tactics. So frustrated was Arizona Senator John McCain with the latest, forcing fellow Republicans to take a politically risky vote on lifting the debt ceiling, that yesterday he tweeted a Wall Street Journal editorial accusing the Texas lawmaker of instigating “needless drama that helps to explain why Republicans remain a minority.” (Snip)Cruz’s insistence Feb. 12 on a 60-vote threshold to advance legislation lifting the nation’s borrowing cap foiled his party leadership’s plan to let the measure move forward with only Democratic votes.

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure. In its most updated assessment of the ACA, the government’s own Congressional Budget Office caught the Democrats flat-footed by projecting that the law is severely flawed on a number of fronts, matching in many ways what the ACA opponents clearly

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one. Default would have dire implications for the world economy. Even toying

Once again, bitter feelings are being cast in the direction of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. With the House passing the “clean” debt ceiling bill and sending it to the Democratic-controlled Senate, it was clear that this particular bill was going to be passed and sent to the president for his signature. But Cruz didn´t want to let Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., off the hook and give President Obama a blank check to once again increase the debt ceiling as we are drowning in red ink. He didn't want Republicans to simply vote against the bill, hiding behind the Democrat majority who were sure to pass it.
