…in war-torn areas, actually looks like this. His Oneness can claim to have no boots on the ground anywhere, but it is a bald-faced lie and a dangerous one. Too few troops is far more risky than too many. Mr. Obama will ultimately be responsible for more deaths and injuries to our special operators than George W. Bush ever was. The operators know this, they know their commander-in-chief does not respect them, and yet they go anyway.
Part of the problem is the insanely restrictive rules of engagement, which place our military personnel at risk while also forcing them to consider and weigh the consequences and possible repercussions of actions, thus exposing them to more danger. If you must fight a war, then you must let your troops fight, not simply send them to be sitting ducks so you can say you are not a war president. It is impossible to conduct a war when you have no clearly defined goal, no policy to support, no clue as to what victory looks like, and no apparent appetite for actually achieving any victory other than the protection of your presidential and personal legacy.
By the way, if, like the elites, you don’t think soldiers are very smart, watch this video of Marines’ reactions to W versus that to His Oneness.
Stephen Moore has devised the Christmas letter the Obamas might pen if they were honest and straightforward. This is about all His Oneness actually managed on a military base, in addition to his Christmas message. He did send Kwanzaa greetings, a message for a holiday made-up by a criminal black activist, presented by a pretend president. Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction’s Instagram throwback failed to impress. Pres. George W. Bush’s practice of staying at Camp David until the day after Christmas, so staff and Secret Service and reporters could spend Christmas day with their families, still impresses.
Senator-elect James Lankford delivered a traditional message on behalf of the GOP. Sir Winston Churchill did a lot better than either of them last century. So did Pope Francis this year. Heck, even Baghdad’s Christians managed better.
The mountains of Hawaii were under a blizzard warning for Christmas, which was better than shopping under the threat of lava flows. The Chinese China’s Grinch cranked down another couple of notches on churches. Tolkien’s view of the season may explain why statists of all stripes, and progressives, hate religion in general and Christianity in particular. Nasty punks in Oakland went on a destructive tear, joined by black mobs all over the country.
Many people apparently didn’t like their presents, but it seems only one was angry enough to get tossed off a plane. Some people gave remarkable presents. If you received a drone, the FAA has issued warnings for you. As usual, ’tis the season for non-believers to despise and denigrate. It must infuriate them all that believers are generally much happier than others. NBC investigates the meaning of Christmas and fails to mention Christ. Not to be outdone, Newsweek publishes a hit piece smearing the bible and Christians.
A theologian said Jesus wasn’t born in a barn, and he may be correct. After all, there are still plenty of places where the ground floor serves as shelter for animals, and the people live above, benefiting in the winter time from the heat the animals produce. John Henry Faulk’s story of Christmas still makes for interesting reading.
The British monarchy still does Christmas festively. In 1914 Americans did it right by sending a ship with 5 million presents for Britain’s children who had lost their fathers in the war. That was also the year of the Christmas Truce, which has now been commemorated by British and German graffiti artists in London.
The title of this piece puts it all into proper perspective: George Bush brought democracy to Iraq, Barack Obama brought ISIS.
The C.I.A. has screwed up big time in Lebanon and Iran. You can pink a large chunk of this failure on progressives — people like Sen. Chuck Schumer who decreed that we shouldn’t deal with bad people in order to spy on other bad people. Please read the entire piece, because you need to know that the same people in the C.I.A. who tried to destroy Pres. George Bush, and who did succeed in driving out Porter Goss, the man he appointed to clean it up, are still there, still slick, and still running their own fiefdom.
Do you remember that Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld ramped up U.S. Army Intelligence the instant he was appointed? Don’t you imagine such a smart, savvy man had a damned good reason for doing so beyond the Clinton Administration having built firewalls among all the intelligence agencies to blind them?
The only thing which strikes me as odd is that the alleged spies haven’t already been publicly executed. Perhaps Hezbollah thinks it can use the weakness of His Oneness to gain some advantage. Meanwhile, add spycraft to the list of things the federal government doesn’t do well.
