An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
I don’t even know where to start! Three Jewish boys are murdered, presumably by Hamas associates(definitely by muslims) , and the so called palestinians celebrate. A few crazy Jews murder a palestinian boy and Hamas pretty much declares war on Israel. Does anyone else see the irony? The hypocrisy? Both acts were brutal, and unforgivable. The Israelis arrests the Jews who committed the horrendous act, and WILL prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Do you think anyone in the Gaza strip will arrest the murderous thugs who killed the three Jewish boys? Oh HELL no they won’t. As I said, the palies celebrated their murder.
For the past few days, rockets have been raining down on the Israelis from Gaza. Who does the Obama administration blame? You got it! The Israelis. They don’t seem to be aware that the Israelis have tried to live in peace with the “disputed territories’, all of which is part of Israel. The muslims in those areas refuse to live in peace! They don’t want Jews or Christians, or anyone else to live….PERIOD! We could learn a great deal from the Israelis about protecting our homeland, but to admit that the Israelis are better at something, actually a LOT of somethings, would go against Obama’s ‘religion’.
Do the Obamatrons not know the centuries of persecution of the Jewish people? It didn’t matter what country to which they were forced to flee, they would always end up being persecuted, even the U.S., which touts a 1st Amendment right of the freedom to worship as one chooses. Finally, after centuries of wandering from one country to another, they finally get their homeland back, and all hell breaks lose. One tiny strip of land, only a fraction of the land that God gave them, and they are suppose to up and leave again? After one of those most telling examples of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man, the Jews finally get to go home, and all hell breaks lose once again. They have been fighting for their lives for centuries, does the Obama administration think that just because HE says so, the Israelis are going to open their arms to those who want to slaughter them? Again?
There will be no living in peace with the muslims because the muslims do not want peace. They want to murder. They had the opportunity to make a garden of the desert, support themselves, have economic growth. Instead, they chose to destroy everything that the Jewish people had built, and left in Gaza when the Israelis agreed to give up that land to the muslims. They screwed themselves, and we’re suppose to feel sorry for them, and give them billions of dollars? I don’t freakin’ think so.
Centuries of hatred perpetrated by the teachings of a murderous pedophile, who was snubbed by the Jews who refused to turn away from the one TRUE God and convert to his idol worship, will not vanish. Obama knows this, and refuses to face reality. Islam is a cult of hatred and death.
Barack Hussein Obama, and his lackeys, might stand with the lying, thieving, murdering muslims, but….
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you’re quite aware of the “humanitarian crisis” we are having along the southern border of these United States. Nancy Pelosi, the botox queen, says “We are all Americans”. Well, in that, she might be right. The western hemisphere is called the Americas after all. Here’s where we have a problem with her statement: We might all be Americans, but we are not all U.S. citizens, any more than we are all Mexican citizens, or El Salvadoran citizens, or Honduras citizens, and… Well, you get the picture. We are separate countries with different cultures.
The U.S. was founded on certain principles that are not found in other cultures. Over the past couple of centuries, many have escaped tyrannical governments to come here, live free from fear of the tyranny that rules their countries. The majority came legally. Many did not, but once upon a time, those who didn’t come through the proper channels assimilated into our culture, learned the language, eventually becoming citizens, usually contributing to society in one way or another.
The argument I hear so often is that we are all immigrants. Well, yes and no. Our ancestors were immigrants. We are citizens, born and bred, learning the history of our nation, and having a rich appreciation for the sacrifices of those who came before us. Those who are invading our southern border now are not immigrants. They are illegal invaders, and should be treated as such. They are breaking the very laws that our illustrious current resident of the White House refuses to enforce, along with his criminal side kick, the U.S. Attorney General. This is creating the crisis, and should be laid directly upon both their heads.
The introduction of diseases that have been eradicated for decades is going to cause a bigger problem than those who refuse to open their eyes understand. We don’t have widespread chicken pox, measles, drug resistant TB, and any number of others diseases thanks to our once terrific health care system, vaccinations, and our penchant for good hygiene. And let’s not forget about scabies. Not only are these children, who I don’t blame, putting a serious strain on our limited resources, but they are bringing diseases with them.
No, I don’t blame the kids. They didn’t wake up one morning and decide to take a stroll through Mexico to get to the U.S. I blame their parents, some who are already here illegally. What kind of parent leaves their kids, and takes off to parts unknown? What kind of parent sends their kids with criminals, hoping they’ll make it safely to a foreign country? I consider this child abuse, and we have enough abusers of children in this country already. We don’t need more!
Many seem to forget, it’s not just children who are flooding across the borders. We also have OTMs (other than Mexican), which should be changed to OTA, Other Than American. Those of Middle Eastern origin pass for Hispanic, using Hispanic names. It’s quite obvious to anyone with a brain, they aren’t coming looking for the American Dream. They are coming to promote the American Nightmare.
I blame, not only the drug cartels, who have made life a living hell in the border states, but the current resident. He has failed in his duties as President of the United States, and should be treated accordingly. HE has created, and encouraged, this humanitarian crisis.
Once again, our illustrious ‘leader’ show just how out of touch he truly is. Now, he’s asking for $500 MILLION of OUR money to train Syrian rebels. Seriously? Does he not know who those Syrian rebels actually are? Let’s face some facts here….Barack Hussein Obama is funding terrorists. And that 500 MIL is just a small part of the 65.5 BILLION he wants for overseas operations.
We are broke. The citizens of THIS country are hurting. We are being overrun on the border by invaders from numerous countries and he wants to help “protect” foreigners. Well, he sure is doing a great job of that….right here on our own soil. He’s doing nothing to stem the flow of invaders, no matter their age, coming across, putting a huge strain on what few resources we have, bringing only God know how many diseases with them.
Our veterans are dying, not due to the lack of funding for the Veterans Administration, but due to the bungling of career government employees, who apparently, can’t be fired. That’s not a real world scenarios. That’s ‘just how the government works’. Use that money for vouchers so every vet can go to a real health care facility to get the care they need, instead of dying, waiting months to see a doctor.
No, instead, the current resident of the White House will giver away OUR money to the very people who want to destroy us. Who does he think are the ‘rebels’ in Syria? His “overseas contingency package” funds terrorists. Just about every country in the Middle East gets a piece of our pie, and honestly, if they all blown themselves up, the world would be better off. Instead, this administration encourages the barbarians, with money and training. I don’t think they need any training. They do quite well at killing each other, and us. Has no one seen the dead bodies piling up?
I know full well that Hosni Mubarek, Saddam Hussein and Moammar Gadhafi were corrupt, evil, and brutal dictators, but they kept the islamists in check. Look at what has happened since their outing. Once our troops left Iraq, long before they should have, chaos. Slaughter. Brutality. Worse than when those dictators were in power. And the CR wants the same to happen in Syria. Besides, they don’t need our money, or training. They get plenty from countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran.
We need that money here at home. Money that could start small businesses. Money that could make sure OUR children were fed and clothed. Money that could secure the border, and prevent diseases from coming in with the invaders.
No, sorry Mr Obama. You definitely do not live in the real world. You are not the world’s savior. You do more harm to those countries than good, while destroying what you claim to be your own country. I have many doubts about you, but I have NO doubt your intent is to aid in the re-establishment in the caliph.
If he truly wants to help people in the Middle East, how about doing something to protect the Christians that are being run out of their homes, slaughtered by the hundreds, and imprisoned for their faith. Instead of opening the door to those same terrorists, due to “persecution”, what about opening our doors to those who are actually being persecuted.
Your job, “sir”, is to protect THIS country, and her citizens, FIRST! You are are not doing your job.
The White House is totally disconnected from reality! Yesterday, John Boehner announced he was considering filing a lawsuit against Barack Hussein Obama for failing in his duties as POTUS. The White House says the suit is because BO is doing his job? Well, ok, let’s take a look at a just one of those things he considers his job. Laws.
Article I, Section 1 states: All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
A simple statement, meaning that the Congress writes the laws, and passes, or doesn’t pass them. If they pass, both houses, then the bill goes to the POTUS, who either signs it, or vetoes. Then, if he signs the bill, it becomes law, and he is required to enforce the law. It’s really not all that complicated.
The problem arises when the POTUS decides which laws he likes, and which ones he doesn’t like, and refuses to enforce the ones he doesn’t like, like securing the border. This has been an issue long before the current resident, but has become an even greater problem due to the fact he flatly REFUSES to secure the border, and created an open door policy for illegal invaders. Just look at the mess he created down on the border with the hundreds of children swarming in, carry God knows what diseases, like infectious TB, scabies, measles, etc. Some diseases that we eradicated are making a comeback due to the lack of security on our borders. I won’t even get into the terrorists who are making the trek across the deserts to enter our country to do harm.
States pass laws to protect themselves from the invasion, and this administration’s ‘top cop’ sues them…for doing what the federal government SHOULD be doing…securing our borders, evicting the invaders, and protecting the LEGAL citizens of their state. The administration decided he doesn’t like the law requiring the feds to keep the citizens safe, so he ignores it.
What about that so called Affordable Care Act? Well, there’s nothing affordable about it, and everything the CR said was a lie. Some of his buddies didn’t like part of it, so he changed it to appease them. He is not allowed to do that. Once a law is signed, only Congress can make changes, and it has to go through the process of committees, both houses agree, then it gets signed or vetoed again. The President of the United States does not have the power, or the legal authority to changes laws.
Doing his job? No, I think not. He is doing everyone’s job but his own, and getting in a lot of golf in between.
There has been a lot of blather about the number of executive orders each of the most recent presidents have signed. Must I remind people it’s not the number of the orders, it’s the CONTENT?
Barack Hussein Obama has failed miserably. He has violated his oath of office repeatedly, and, if he had any integrity, he would resign. But then, he has none, so it’s not surprising that he keeps his heads in the clouds with his rainbow farting unicorns.
Back in March, Trey Gowdy put it quite well.
H/T to Chris for the video.
I usually avoid the news on Sundays. Not much on FB either, so I don’t see a lot of what’s happened in those 24 hours or so. I wake up this morning to check Drudge, and what do I see? Years of treasure down the drain.

Well, we all know al Malaki screwed up when he dismissed so many from the Army, and other positions, because they weren’t the ‘right’ kind of muzzie. Yeah, that was brilliant.
But we also know that Barack Hussein Obama is no Commander in Chief. He never looks at the BIG picture, never considers the consequences of his actions. Basically, he’s like a four year old with lots of fancy toys, and a fat salary.
There is also something else those of us in the west don’t understand. We can NOT expect a country that is run by religious fanatics, even if they claim to be secular, to become a democracy! Their cult of death and anything resembling a democracy just don’t mesh, and people are being slaughtered.
What is more disgusting is that those who poured over the border with Syria are the same ones that Obama and crew were arming. There’s been a rumor flying around that the reason Chris Stevens was in Benghazi that night meeting with the guy from Turkey was that they were talking arms deals. The animals in Libya then got a hold of all those weapons that weren’t secured in that country, and since then, all hell has been breaking lose in a number of countries.
Now, I honestly don’t give a damn if the sunnis kill the shias, or the shias kill the sunnis, or the wahabi yahoos kills themselves, or whatever. What I DO care about is that this insanity could spread to the borders of Israel and our illustrious leader will do what he always does…..think about it, and play golf.
BHO has brought shame to this country. He has brought shame to the greatest fighting force on the planet. He has done enough damage. It’s past time for him to go!
There was quite the firestorm after CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller put out this tweet. Gosh, I guess Obama is totally tuckered after all the flying around, at our expense, going from fundraiser to fundraiser, with a stump speech thrown in here and there at various locations. Or maybe his head hurts so much from trying to think? Naw….first, ya gotta have a brain to have the ability to think.
But hey, Obama shouldn’t concern himself with the thousands being slaughtered in Iraq, or the Americans that are trapped (will they be Benghazi’d), Iran is on the job!
Oh, and hey, let’s not forget that while Obama is playing golf, again, ISIS is busy cutting off the heads of Iraqis.
Cries Out for Obama’s Impeachment
Do you ever feel like you’ve woken up in a parallel universe? I’ve been having that feeling for the last 5 1/2 years, and it seems to be getting worse. I’m not sure how I got here, but I’d like to find the exit now….please. I want to go home.
I use to live in a place where, with hard work, people could succeed, or fail, on their own merits. Children were reasonably educated, and mostly respectful of their elders. Sex wasn’t 24/7 on the idjit box entertainment, including commercials, and sex before marriage was frowned upon. People knew when they had done something wrong, and felt shame. Most people took responsibility for their actions, apologized when they screwed up, and tried to rectify the situation.
Come to think of it, the universe of yesteryear has been slowly colliding with this one for quite a while. I guess I really didn’t notice it as much as I do now. This universe has become the upside down world of now, and I’m not real fond of it, if I do say so myself. I want to go home.
When did the two universes become completely switched? Well, I’d say the real collision began in 2007, and became complete in 2009. Since then, I have been living in a world I don’t recognize, and don’t particularly like.
Why 2007? Well, if you’ll remember, that’s when the gavel was handed over to Nancy Pelosi, and things started getting completely out of hand. We had a Democrat controlled Congress, and the irresponsible spending became the norm. Oddly enough, that’s why the Republicans had lost, the excessive spending. I guess the country thought that the Dems would keep their word, and be responsible. That’s what you get when you have uneducated voters. I’m not saying they are stupid, just ignorant. Democrats have always loved to spend other people’s money. Why would the country think this time it would be better?
George W Bush has been blamed for the excessive spending, and maybe in some ways, he does bear some responsibility. That TARP deal wasn’t a good idea. It just started the ball rolling. Now, we can’t seem to get those in Congress to understand, it’s not their money they keep giving away. The country is hurting, but they keep using dummied up numbers to tell us everything is just peachy. 6.3 (?) unemployment? How about more like 12 %, and it’s even higher in the Democrat control inner cities.
Our economic outlook seems bleak. Unless WE get control of those who are suppose to be working in our best interest, it’s going to get even more bleak.
Yes, we’ve been fighting two wars, and that does put a strain on spending. But instead of supplying our military with the equipment they need to do the job, they have been stripped to bare bones, using what little they have to try to fight and enemy that doesn’t care about the Rules of Engagement, and uses ours to murder those in uniform just trying to do what they were trained to do. They come home physically, mentally, and emotionally maimed, and what does our government do to thank them? Put them on waiting lists, perhaps hoping they’ll die instead of getting the care they need, and deserve.
In the last 5 1/2 years, I have gone from being proud of my country, to absolutely appalled. This must be a parallel universe, because no rational people would put an incompetent, anti-American person in charge. There’s a reason the Founders created 3 separate branches of government. A separation of powers is necessary for a true Republic to function. The duties and responsibilities are laid out in plain English in the U.S. Constitution. Those lines of separation have been so blurred in recent years, I’m not surprised that so many have their heads in the sand.
Have you ever watched some of those videos where a guy asked people on the street to name the three branches of government? Most can’t name them. That’s truly embarrassing, and those who were hired to educate them should be extremely ashamed. Mind you, these are typically college students that are being asked the questions.
Yes, I am definitely in a parallel universe. No rational person would give billions of dollars to the enemies of our nation, and our allies, the enemy our young men and women are fighting. No rational person would make it more difficult for those same young men and women to do their job, to the point that the Rules of Engagement, put into place by politicians who have never worn a uniform, are getting them killed, and maimed.
No rational person would trade 5 top ranked enemy combatants, those who have plotted, and murdered American citizens, on and off the battle field, for one lone person, who many of his comrades are saying is a deserter, and possibly an active collaborator. No rational person would give in to the demands of the enemy, and hand over hardened enemies of the United States, with the flimsiest of excuse for such actions, and nearly no conditions placed upon them after their release. This is most definitely a parallel universe, where the purpose of war is not to win, but to placate the enemy.
This is not a sane world where I was born. This has become a very dangerous place to live, and I want to go home!
