It Is Called Murder

I suppose I should rant about the health care system, but I have done enough of that and no one listened to me. Now, all those in favor of the ACA have gotten exactly what they deserve, nothing.

My real topic today, is the movie “Captain Phillips.” I read about this incident in 2009. For the first time in over two hundred years pirates hi-jack an US ship. The movie sticks to the facts as I remember, and the acting is incredible. Tom Hanks plays Captain Phillips, and a bunch of Somalian’s living in the US played the pirates. None of the Somalis had any prior acting experience. All I can say is that either they picked up acting from Tom Hanks very quickly, or Hollywood filmed genuine pirates during a hi-jack. The Somalis did a fabulous job of convincing me that they were pirates.

I won’t talk a lot about the film except to explain that the US Navy came to the rescue.  A battleship, an aircraft carrier and a another smaller vessel between them. Navy Seals flew in from another part of the world parachuted into the Indian Ocean near the ships and did their job.

Coming out of the movie, I met my buddy Al standing near the exit. He beat me to the john at the end and waited for me. As I walked toward him I said, “I can’t believe it, three Navy ships, helicopters, and Seals from somewhere to rescue a single American yet we couldn’t offer a single resource to the Ambassador in Benghazi. He smiled and said. “the same thing kept going through my mind for the entire movie.

At dinner Al and I continued to analyze the differences between Somalian piracy and the Benghazi Embassy attack. We concluded that the prime difference was the 2012 election. Obama ran around the country bragging about Al Qaeda on the run and how he killed bin Laden and that terrorism is declining. Had he acknowledged Benghazi as a real threat, he would have blown all his campaign rhetoric and looked like a complete dummy. We all know that wasn’t going to happen. Incumbent presidents do very strange things to get re-elected. In this case Obama killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Information Officer, and Seals Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods in the embassy in Benghazi, Libya. His right hand Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is also complicit.

My lifetime spans thirteen presidents, and never have I heard any rumor, innuendo, or a smattering of gossip about any of them committing murder to win an election until number thirteen.

Benghazi was within an hour of the nearest military team ready to deal with a terrorist attack. Three men died while defending the Ambassador. There are reports that the three took out sixty or more of the two-hundred or more attackers with the limited resources they had. All it would have taken was another seven Seals to squash the attack. Had there been some air support, each attacker would be happily engaged with his seventy virgins.

What ever Obama and his spin-masters tell you about the Benghazi attack is a huge stretch of the truth (another way to express that is that they are telling you a lie). Obama allowed his embassy team to die because he chose to go to bed, and to leave them hanging. I call it murder, and every one who voted for this guy is an accomplice to murder as well.

Coming Out Smelling Like a Rose

Last night I plunked my self down in front of the big screen LED HDTV to watch the President weasel out of his disaster called Syria, or the Red Line, or aiding and abetting Al Qaeda. The Samsung brought Obama right into my living room. When he walked down that hallway to his teleprompters the definition on my screen was so real, I thought he was coming into the room with me. His opening remarks were not very inspiring and I had heard most of the arguments about how he knows that Syria lobbed gas bombs into a rebel held neighborhood. I was wanting to hear him read something good and important.

It was kind of surreal when the next image appeared, it was a commentator analyzing every syllable of every word Obama uttered. What happened to his speech? I, uh, guess I have to confess, his magical oratorical reading had the same effect on me that gas warfare had on Assad’s citizens. Except, I am lucky, I woke up again, a bunch of his people didn’t.

Now, I am content with watching news-snippets of what he did read, and I am glad I fell asleep. The nap was more beneficial than the solace he might have offered me with his plans to go no where.

It Is Not His Red Line

The debate about what to do with Syria is fascinating. There are so many scenarios to play out and to plan for, but the one that will happen is most likely the one never planned. In my mind this is simple. The President drew a red line and boldly declared that Syria must not cross it or face the consequences. Today, I heard Obama back track and say it was not him who drew the red line, but the world. He referenced the Geneva Convention after WWII when world leaders outlawed gas warfare. Obama is correct, the Geneva Convention prohibits gas warfare, but he is also wrong. He spoke the words, and drew a fresh red line for Syria. Now he is afraid to act.

 

I said it was simple, and it is. The “shot across the bow” is a hand slap. Our strike must make believers out of Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia, and Pakistan that we mean business when you violate the no gas warfare rule. We must send a signal significant enough to scare the living bejesus out of the entire world. Rather than a slap on the hand, a ferocious kick in the ass is in order. A kick that is fierce enough to make the world think hard and long before they try any more gas attacks.

 

The problem I see with this approach is that it relies on sound intelligence that the Syrian Government is really the perpetrator of the gas attack. Our Secretary of State is proclaiming that our intelligence is showing us that the attack is directly attributable the Syrian government. I for one, don’t really put much faith in our intelligence since they have blown so many things, like Benghazi for one. There are also several factions rebelling against Syria, that anyone of them could have pulled the attack off. There are rumors that the CIA, Israel, and Al Qaeda all did it. So, who did do it? I cannot believe a leader of a country will perpetrate such an atrocity on his own people. It would be like believing that Obama gasses New York because it is to his advantage. I’m not buying into it. As much as I dislike Obama, I can’t believe he can commit such an atrocity.

 

Let him who is free of sin cast the first stone.

 

 

 

Benghazi Cock-a-ma-me

 

Imam Obama

Benghazigate is exploding into a major nightmare and embarrassment for America. Why in the world would the Commander-in-Chief tell us a lie? Why did he feed us that cock-a-ma-me story about the uprising in Libya being a reaction to a video about Allah? When I listened to Hillary’s proclamation on live TV about the attack on Benghazi I smelled a rat. She made a forced dramatic speech about how this vile video claimed our Ambassador. The story line persisted and went on for days. Obama never veered off course from the phony story. Even as more information leaked out to confirm that our government knew about the terrorist nature of the attack within an hour after it began he persisted in spreading the lie. He even knew it was Al Qaeda attacking.

The latest news is that Ambassador Stevens orchestrated a secret gun running deal between the USA and Syrian rebels (Another Fast and Furious?).  What is that all about? Open and transparent like a lead box is what I call this scenario. Another factoid that I can’t resolve is why in the world would Obama allow a fellow gay to work in a radical muslim world. Muslims hate gays. Most likely that is why the terrorists sodomized Ambassador Chris Stevens before killing him.

Obama wears a gold ring on his left hand. Everyone believes it is a wedding ring. It may be, or it may not be. He has worn the ring on that same finger since his college days. Reportedly the ring’s Arabic engraving interprets into “no God but Allah.”  That makes me wonder about the motives of this President. “In “Audacity of Hope” he writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.” The Benghazigate situation doesn’t get any uglier.

The cartoon displays one opinion of his motive for not sending help to Benghazi. There is an US airbase in Italy just twenty minutes away from Benghazi. Instead Obama allowed a seven hour firefight between a terrorist mob to go on against two Navy Seals. But Muslims don’t shoot their fellow faithful practicing Muslims do they?

All it would have taken was one US helicopter gunship to blow these heavenly virgin seeking bastards away. Why Mr. President, why?

Illinois, the New Home of Al Qaeda?

The latest ploy by Obama is to house the GITMO terrorists in  Illinois. He proposes the Federal Government  buy a brand new prison in Thomson, Illinois and to convert it into a super-max prison. He will then bring jobs to Illinois by staffing the prison to care for the GITMO guys. A while back I wrote a piece titled “A Gitmo Proposal” which gave my proposal for housing the same guys in  Illinois. My proposal was more interesting than Obama’s. I wanted to give President BO some extra income by housing the terrorists in his vacant house in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago.

I have a quandary about the prison in Illinois. It is a relatively new facility in Thomson, Illinois. It currently houses about one hundred and eighty inmates. It has capacity for eighteen hundred. How is it that it is only ten percent utilized? I hear the state can’t afford to staff it. Didn’t they think about staffing when they built the damn place?  It is my guess that this prison was built with ear marks put on some obscure bill by our Senator Dickie Durbin.

Illinois has a history of projects that are under utilized. There is a very large air port in southern Illinois near Saint Louis that doesn’t have any air traffic. The old “Field of Dreams” principle of “build it they will come” never materialized but we have a beauty of an air port in an area that  no one will ever visit or hear about in the next thousand years. Now we have a prison in the same category. At least this time Dickie is being creative, and is trying to double dip for good old Illinois.

Add Islamaphobe to Homophobe, and Racist

You did what?

This morning’s news upset me quite a bit. The announcement about two Universities being terrorized by bomb threats coming by phone from people who sounded mid-eastern was enough for me. I dashed off a letter to my Senators and Congressman. Then I e-mailed the letter. To make sure they got the message, I called their offices and dictated the letter to the aid in charge. Not satisfied, I sent a signed copy of the letter by Priority mail to Senators Durbin, Kirk, and Congressman Kinzinger. The message is don’t f__k with our kids.

The full content of my letter is below. I recommend you copy this letter and send it to your Senators and Congressmen as well. We have to make our voices heard. The insanity must be stopped.

Re:  Homeland Security

Legislation to secure America from attack

Dear Senator Durbin:

Please pass legislation immediately to do the following:

1. Suspend all Visas’ of people from Muslim countries to the USA.

2. Prohibit entry to any Muslim into the USA

3. Find and deport all illegal Muslim people living in the USA

4. Prohibit further immigration of Muslim people into the USA.

5. Interview and watch all non-citizen Muslims within the USA.

6. Close the borders between Mexico and Canada to stem the tide of illegal Muslims entering the USA.

I request this action as a citizen who totally understands the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I also understand that our Congress has control over writing laws to make our country safe. None of the requests I have made above are out of the ordinary nor would they violate any Constitutional rights. Radical Muslims have attacked or threaten to attack us from within. It is our duty  as a nation to take action against these aggressors.

I ask for this legislation because of the most recent attack on the USA by AL Qaeda at the Universities of Texas and North Dakota.  Since we are at war with terrorists these actions are appropriate and mandatory as a way to control the enemy. Since there is no safe way to determine which alien Muslims are radical, and which are not, we must make them all suspect and send them back to their home countries.

We must keep our country safe from attack by anyone from anywhere.

Please do the right thing and place this legislation before the Senate for a vote by next week. I know you can do it if you really care about America.

Respectfully yours,

Grumpa Joe

You call me an Islamaphobe, just add it on to racist and homophobe.

In the meantime. write to your Senators and Congressman.

Blame Bush, It Works

Divide the Country

President Obama continues to campaign hard by shifting the focus from his record to issues unrelated to anything important about governing the country. His Blame Bush philosophy works to soothe the souls of voters who have buyers remorse, but don’t have a plausible argument. Bush haters are so adamant about Bush that any argument about Obama’s record becomes “anything but another Bush.”

Bush haters blame him for the wars, and for the crash of the economy. Let me give you my take on those arguments.

1. Wars. Yes, Bush started two wars, one in Afghanistan and the second in Iraq. The effort in Afghanistan was necessary to kill Al Qaeda and to stop the Taliban from providing a safe haven for the same. Since Obama killed Osama Bin Laden and reduced Al Qaeda to that of a bacterial infection almost eliminated, we seem to want to leave and let the infection re-establish itself.

The war in Iraq was a gamble which we lost. Saddam Hussein buffed our government into thinking he had weapons of mass destruction. He didn’t, and in retrospect, the war was unnecessary. Once we destroyed an entire country that happily lived under a ruthless dictator, we felt it our obligation to rebuild the place. The cost became a major issue with voters. It was with me too.

2. Economy, blaming Bush for the bad economy is stupid. The root-cause of the housing bubble collapse is a law enacted by Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. Lyndon felt so guilty about the way white people treated blacks he wanted to give them all a free house to realize the same American Dream white people enjoy, i.e. without the mortgage. Johnson’s plan wasn’t working fast enough for Bill Clinton, so he pushed through a law to revitalize the Great Society with the Neighborhood Re-investment Act. Things really got rolling with that one. Evil banks are redlining neighborhoods in order not to make bad loans, and  the new law got on their case for that. The government pushed their robot companies Fannie and Freddie to change things with illegal, under the table assurances that the government would cover their asses on bad loans. Money flowed. People learn to make big money by giving buyers who cannot afford a mortgage a loan. Housing began to escalate in price because of the new demand. The increase in prices taught the lenders a new trick, i.e. lend people money based on the paper equity gain on the house. Lenders gambled that borrowers would have enough equity in a house within five years to re-finance and get a mortgage that actually paid back the loan. Many borrowers went to closings to take a new house and a pile of cash at the same time. They did not make a down payment, they had an interest only loan, and they received a cash settlement for the paper equity value the house gained between the time they bought it and the time they closed on it.

The cash flowed so freely, that investors got in on the action and began to buy houses with no money down so they could resell them in a short time to make a profit. The easy money spread like a tumor running wild. New home sales spurred the economy further. Construction was one way, but equipping new homes with appliances, furniture, and such further stimulated business. We all benefitted; some of us with good jobs, some with investments, some selling mortgages.

While this is all going on, Wall Street is making out. That is what they do. If they don’t make money guys like me who depend on them for retirement complain a lot. Fannie and Freddie  invent ways to hide bad loans within bundles of good loans so Wall Street can sell them to the world. After all, the loans supported by the U.S.Government are good. Who is the U.S. Government? It is a democrat congress pushing a socialist agenda against a republican president. The crap rolls down hill further and winds up in our laps in the form of higher taxes to pay the bill for government sins.

Come along good old George Bush. He learns of the problem and goes to a democrat controlled congress to ask for some help. Good old boys Barney Frank and Chris Todd, who should know what is going on fan the flames a little higher by denying any problem. In walks Barack Obama just as the bubble is exploding. Being a really strong socialist democrat, he supports all democrats like Frank and Todd, Fannie, Freddie and his only defense is to blame his predecessor.

Has anyone in the Congress or the Executive branch taken any responsibility for any of it? Nope, but they do blame Bush, evil banks, evil Wall Street, evil capitalism, and gun-toting Americans.

So that my friends is why Obama blames Bush, because he can’t take any responsibility for anything he and his democrat friends have accomplished because that would be admitting their policies don’t work.
