Who are the neo-con cowboys now?
New York Post, by Benny Avni

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/30/2013 5:08:36 AM

The secretary of state boiled with moral indignation, American pride and war bluster. The defense secretary huffed that America has “moved assets in place” and is “ready” to punish the strongman. And though the president says he has yet to decide whether to attack, leaked details of the coming military action were all over the newspapers: Within “days,” US Navy ships will launch a barrage of Tomahawks at selected targets. Have George W. Bush and his band of cowboy neo-cons retaken the White House? If only. This time the secretary of state is John Kerry, who launched a political career opposing the

Actually, it´s a posse of neo-com cowpersons in charge now, and they´re determined to steer (as in bulls without balls) us toward THEIR preferred wars.

Remember how they used to be anti-war? Me neither. Clearly, they weren´t really against war, they were only against war waged against their allies (i.e., coms and musbros).

People have become conditioned to accept liberal hypocrisy as nothing to see here.In fact,they turn it around and say it proves they´re flexible and open minded while right wing goons are stuck in achient times.

Bush invaded Iraq out of the belief that free people who have a voice in their governmet will make them less hostile. Of course that´s a theory when it comes to muslims but it´s worked fine with former soviet bloc countries.

Bush also had terrible intelligence on Iraq handed to him by Clinton. We really had no idea on the internal warring factions in Iraq.

Obama is being used as a feckless tool by big islam and he´s probably willing to be one.The different factions of the muslim brotherhood are making Obama´s foreign policy decisions but they´re running into the real world.

Obama War Room: If It ‘Twere Done . . .

OBAMA: So why not just dump this in Congress’s lap. Let them vote “no” on striking Syria and I’m off the hook.
CHUCK HAGEL: Too late for that, sir. Everyone will know it’s a dodge. We have to go through with a military response or look like idiots.
OBAMA: Okay, how about this? I’m having an emergency vasectomy at 3 this afternoon. My last words to the vp before I’m sedated are, “Order a surgical strike on . . .” And then I’m out. Joe, being cautious, hits some abandoned tanks in Damascus. He looks weak, that’s his problem.
BIDEN: Geez, I’d love to Boss, but I’m having a colonoscopy at the same time.
VALERIE JARRETT: Boehner’s next in line, sir. He might act decisively.
OBAMA: Not good. Instead of a ‘’shot across the bow,’’ he’d take Assad out and win the world’s approbation.
JARRETT: If we’re going to do nothing, then we need the mother of all distractions to get Syria off the front pages, sir.
OBAMA: Like what?
JARRETT: Postpone the individual mandate. Or task ATF to begin confiscating firearms from Republicans. Or declare Detroit a ward of the federal government. Or . . .
OBAMA: No, gotta be Syria. I’m boxed in. NSA.
GENERAL ALEXANDER: Yes, sir.
OBAMA: Implement Operation End Run.
BIDEN: End Run?
OBAMA: NSA has the launch codes for Israel’s nuclear tipped cruise missiles. Assad goes up in a mushroom cloud, the evidence clearly shows Israel made the shot. Iran and her surrogates attack Israel. We let them bloody each other before I step in to play peacemaker. In a weakened state, Israel agrees to share their country with the Palestinians. I get another Nobel Peace Prize.
JAY CARNEY: Tiger’s here for your short game tutorial, sir.
OBAMA: Syria can wait. Everyone stay putt--uh, put. I’ll be back in an hour.

Yes, you can cut the hypocrisy with a knife, I agree. However, we need to butt out of the chaos that Muslims create. Half measures never work on the barbarian mindset. We should have learned that by now. Americans are sick of war, especially those wars that draw us in, kill and maim our men and women, and the have little or no effect on our enemies. Obama is a fool who is about to start WWIII.

For the record, there are things obama should be impeached for, but I would not blame him in the least if he chose now to back away from this situation. I might only say he should never have made any threats that he wasn´t willingly to back, but following through would be a mistake.

Nope, not that, either. World peace? Not even close. Salving Obama´s precious ego? That is my guess, but no matter what half measures he takes, he will wind up with egg on his face.

This whole mess is the result of zippy going off teleprompter and putting his foot in his mouth yet again. The best thing that could happen from the US perspective is for zippy to admit that he´s in over his head and resign.

People are slaughtered all over the world every day, mostly by Muslims. We should stay out of it all - our son´s and daughter´s lives should not be laid on the line for a bunch of 7th century barbarians whose main purpose in life is to kill all infidels.

The problem with Liberal Hypocrisy is that it actually affects policy, decision making, etc. Look at the toll on the G. W. Bush Administration.

All the talk that if Obama doesn´t attack will make the US appear as a paper tiger. I disagree. Not attacking will make Obama look as the neutered paper tiger that everyone, to include world leaders, know he is.

The danger here is, of course, that Obama will do something crazy to get himself out of the fix he put himself in with his ballsy red line talk. And we know from Benghazi that getting his own people killed in order to save face is not beyond.

One has to wonder – could the military hold that a presidential order to go to war, absent Congressional approval, be considered illegal, and therefore not to be obeyed?

One thing is certain; this horrible situation illustrates the monumental folly of putting an empty suit in the most challenging job in the world.

This isn´t about a war. It isn´t even about a strategic, punitive response to horrific genocide. It´s Barack Hussein Obama using American lives and assets to stroke his ego. It´s no different to him than a vacay to the Vineyard. It will make him feel (and) look more important; policy, economy, and morality be damned! And--if he "telegraphs" it enough, he can let his MB friends know what´s coming, when, and where, so that they can be out of the line of fire. Traitor. Imposter. Fool.

The big problem regarding Obama inspired military action is that he does not play to win. He always gives the US game plan away to the enemy beforehand, as he did again with his Syria plans. His rules of engagement on the ground tend to make US casualties more likely, while essentially giving the enemy sanctuaries from attack in a lot of ways. It is not good when the armed forces are required to carry out military action with one hand tied behind, and with the enemy knowing their game plan. That is the liberal or progressive Democrat way of fighting war these days and historically has been a sure loser.

Obviously overseas, not many people trust Obama anymore. His only remaining support comes from liberals in the USA who are politically allied with him in mainly very liberal domestic politics, and who don´t have a clue as to how the world turns outside US borders.

#21 has a good idea. Military personnel are NOT obligated to carry out an illegal order. However, there are just enough high ranking brass that seem to always be ready to jump in and start shooting at somebody that they will ignore (just like Obozo) the fact that starting a war without Congressional approval is illegal. And I´d like for someone to tell me just what interests WE have in or about Syria?

There are certain things this administration has been quite good at controlling such as the media, elections, the GOP, the national conversation, but they can´t control everything and I believe they are about to find that out. Other nations and other people have other ideas and they are good at controlling things as well.

The Saga of Bundy Ranch --Federal Power, Rule
of Law and Averting Potential Bloodshed
Breitbart Big Government, by Logan Churchwell & Brandon Darby    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 9:32:52 AM     Post Reply
BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events. In the early post-Benghazi days on Capitol Hill, Republicans tried to pry “what did she know and when did she know

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites. The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.” The Topeka, Kansas-based group is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, and has a long history of anti-Semitic

A Secret Fight over Russia

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

It’s not spying, it’s policing. Good news for New Yorkers, who live, work and play in what remains the world’s top terror target: New profiling rules the Justice Department is drafting will reportedly let the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue the critical work of using nationality to map neighborhoods, recruit informants and look for foreign agents. In other words, they’ll let the often-cautious FBI engage in intelligent and legitimate policing to prevent attacks against innocent Americans.

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications.

Apparently, they grew out of their alleged suffering at the hands of “racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, trans-homophobic, xenophobic, and ablest structures.” Translating into English, the students elaborated, “Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack” — suggesting conditions similar to the teen-aged Marines who stormed Fallujah in November 2004, or perhaps the iron-workers who tip-toe on girders 1,000 feet above Manhattan, or an acquaintance of mine whose work clothes reveal that he pumps out quite messy rural

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- The man accused of killing three people in attacks at a Jewish community center and Jewish retirement complex near Kansas City is a well-known white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader who was once the subject of a nationwide manhunt. Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Mo., was booked into Johnson County jail on a preliminary charge of first-degree murder after the attacks Sunday in Overland Park. At a news conference, Overland Park police Chief John Douglass declined to publicly identify the man suspected in the attacks. But an official at the Olathe jail, speaking on the condition

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

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)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer.

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
