Personal Liberty Digest™ offers a handy primer to prepare you for the big, bad world in which you live. Think of this exercise as if it were Obamacare and as if I were the death panel (sorry: “independent payment advisory board”). The good news is that, unlike with Obamacare, you can survive flunking this one.
President Barack Obama took to the rostrum during this past weekend’s memorial to Aaron Alexis’ victims and completely ignored Alexis — not to mention the victims — to focus on something he and his Democratic accomplices continue to refer to as “gun violence.”
And now, back to Barack! Rep. Steve Cohen steps way out of his weight class. And, the Democrats turn their backs on Benghazi. All this — plus — do you smell something? Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
Witness the newest lapdog media malady: ARDS (AR-15 derangement syndrome). When it turned out that Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis didn’t employ an AR-15 (a semi-automatic replica of a military weapon) in his killing spree, they did what all self-respecting liberal pseudo-journalists did; they doubled down on the wrong bet.
Not quite two weeks ago, a group of Islamofascists attacked the town of Maaloula, Syria. The attack didn’t garner all that much attention, primarily because it was drowned out by the roar of President Barack Obama getting sacked in his own diplomatic end zone by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The War of the Two Obamas continues. Vlad’s 9-11 advice. And, that’s the ballgame in Colorado. All this — plus — Dennis and Kim: a budding bromance. Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
Even after the fall of the Soviet Union, I would never have expected it. After all, whether they call themselves “Russians” or “Soviets” or even “eternally vigilant sentinels against the decadence of the capitalist pigs of the West” (or whatever), they’re still not exactly the guys I’d go running to in a diplomatic pinch
In the few weeks since President Barack Obama sprouted war wings and decided to playact at being hawkish, the comedy has flown as fast as Hillary Clinton ducking imaginary sniper fire. Were it not for the fact that actual people are actually dying, Obama’s pathetic fumbling might actually be funny.
To which red line are you referring? Brother, can you spare a buck? And: When Barry met Vlad. All this – plus – Joe learns a trade! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s the Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
If the fact that 91 percent of Americans want war in Syria almost as much as they want Obamacare, union thugs at their workplaces and the National Security Agency reading their emails doesn’t stop President Barack Obama from sending our service personnel to Syria, there’s only one other person who might be able to stop them at the goal line: Obama.
