Remember, Yemen is a success…

leave a comment »

Recall how the Obama Administration touted Yemen as proof of the success of its Middle East policy.   Actually,  the White House is still claiming it  as a success.

Houthi rebels there are  now holding  at least four Americans.   I can’t wait to see how His Oneness tries to spin this reality out of existence.

State picks real winner…

leave a comment »

The State Department has yet again displayed its customary superior judgment  in selecting  a foreign national to participate in a military training program it supports.   NOT!   The counter-terror commander has now defected to ISIS.

UPDATE:   We have now discovered that between 2003 and 2014 Colonel Khalimov participated  in five  counter-terrorism training courses in the United States and in Tajikistan.

Thanks, Anheuser-Busch…

The northwest Georgia brewery of Anheuser-Busch has  once again switched  from beer to producing water in special white cans,  this time for flood victims in Texas and Oklahoma.

As it happens,  I like Michelob beer,  so I’m raising the next bottle to these corporate good guys.

Biblical Al…

The Most Not Reverend Al Sharpton  took to Twitter  to wonder whether the flooding in Texas was God’s rebuke.   I was astonished to learn he claims over 400,000 followers.   Aside from that,  I doubt he got the response he  hoped for from the Twitterverse.

Clintons are super-rich…

leave a comment »

This graphic  shows how many average households in each state would be required to equal the Clinton’s wealth.

Hillary will not be pleased,  since she is pretending to care about the middle class.   Of course,  she also pretends to care about women and children.

Vanilla ice cream — downfall of U.S.?

A question,  asked partly tongue in cheek,  raises a good point.
