    You forgot to mention the numerous times Bush and Cheney said that finding Bin Laden was no longer a priority (and the numerous statements by historical revisionists who now claim that it was “harsh interrrogation techniques” that led to Bin Laden)

    • Al Sieber

      I remember that also Jim that Bin Laden wasn’t that important. I believe the guy has been dead for years from kidney disease.

      • Al Sieber

        The next war is gonna be in Pakistan, continuous wars. anyways thanks for making me laugh Ben, the picture of Nancy Pelosi is pretty scary to look at early in the morning.

        • Ret

          Al, I’m so sorry. What an awful thing to see first thing. I knew she was ugly, but geez, such a close-up? There ought to be a law.

          • Jay

            Wow, Nancy Pelosi looks totally demented! Btw, do you suppose that she is staring at the alleged film footage of the OBL assassination? Personally, she look like she should be working for Planned Parenthood!

          • Steve

            Jay, Pelosi doesn’t “look like she should be WORKING for Planned Parenthood,” she looks like she should have BEEN TAKEN CARE OF by Planned Parenthood! That might be the only abortion I would have fully approved of.

          • Jay

            “Before the health care vote, protesters on Capitol Hill heckled Nancy Pelosi. But she managed to keep a stiff upper lip, as well as a tightly stretched forehead, and an unnaturally arched eyebrow.” –Jay Leno

            “Before she left for China, reporters repeatedly questioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about her claim the CIA lied to her. But Pelosi remained tight-lipped. She also remained tight-foreheaded and tight-eyelided.” –Jay Leno

            “Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in Shanghai to debate climate change with Chinese government officials. I think she’ll do fine. These negotiations always come down to whoever blinks first.” –Jimmy Fallon

            “It was so cold in Washington, it felt like Hillary’s inauguration. It was so cold, Al Gore led a prayer for global warming. In fact, by the end of the inauguration, everybody’s face looked like Nancy Pelosi.” –Jay Leno

            “Today Nancy Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the House. They say this is the furthest anyone in a dress has gotten in Washington since J. Edgar Hoover.” –Jay Leno

            “Nancy Pelosi, the likely Speaker of the House, had lunch at the White House Thursday with President Bush. Though, just to rub things in, she left early to have an abortion.” –Amy Poehler

          • JC

            Thanks for the laughs Jay. :)

          • JUKEBOX

            After that picture of Pelosi, she will probably want to sue her plastic surgeon.

        • Romantic Violence

          Just Pelosi looking like shit? 98% of politicians look like shit

          • Sutekh

            Pelosi looking like shit?

            Pelosi looks like it, talks like it, acts like it, and smells like it.

            Remember, Pelosi said that Congress would have to “pass it [the health care bill] so that we could find out what’s in it?” Does anyone think that was how the Constitution was ratified? If it were the citizens of the Thirteen Colonies would have waked up to find Benedict Arnold king.


          • HAROLD

            Bear in mind, Nancy Pelosi, comes out of our society. This degenerate is typical of our leaders in Washington, not all, but most.
            The zero liability voter always votes for the handout, rather than BE self-reliant and self-motivated with goals, values and principles.

          Hey Al
          Now that is a face to use on a mask when robbing a bank.I’m sure all would hit the ground and never look up!LOL!!Now thats scary!

            Is this her real face or is this someone’s nightmare version? I hate to think of seeing the faces of Hillary or Michelle either. Seeing all 3 would be a great nightmare indeed. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      Don’t you know that the Meeting, in the White House Theater Room, of our Eledged Politial Defense Team… was a Rerun, of DEAP THROAT? That is why they won’t show it to us… ( Too Graffic!)

      • Bert Cundle

        Hillary don’t do that… She sends MONICA… But: She realy wants to be the first Woman President…

    • BobfromCt

      That’s correct. Unlike Obama, the Bush Administration decided it was more important to keep Americans safe from attacks by Muslim fanatics. Obama had little to do with the assasination and he almost couldn’t pull the trigger (like Bill Clinton). It would not have taken Bush 16 hours to decide and he wouldn’t have had to sleep on it. Panetta is the hero here, not Obambi.

      • Koma

        Obama didn’t even know when it happened and how fast Panetta had acted.
        They had to go get Barry from the golf course and inform him about it.
        He was shocked and confused when he heard about it.

        BUT Barry took full credit for it and the blind, mindless Obamanite sheeple sucked it all up like it was the Gospel.

        “King Obama has protected us from the evil villain! We must vote for him AGAIN in 2012!”

        That’s the scary part now, these mindless sheeple are allowed to vote and reproduce.
        They ignore all truth and logic and will follow this false messiah to their death.

        Reality MAY only come to them when they are in a dark gas chamber with 100′s of others as they hold their breath as long as possible to keep from breathing in deadly gas.
        Maybe, just maybe their final thoughts would be about how those crazy, racist, right wing, constitutional conservative, true American patriots were right.
        The very people they hated the most that were only trying to get them to see the truth about what was happening.

        God Bless America

    • crisscross

      But don’t ignore statements by other historical revisionists who now, despite what we’re learning to the contrary, claim that it wasn’t “harsh interrrogation techniques” that led to Bin Laden.

That woman (?) would scare a Zombie to death. I also agree with you that Michelle Bachman is one find looking lady and feel that she is also a Patriot, one who looks out for us (America) and not what she can get by shoving the Grn W up you know what.

    Sorry ben,It’s your revisionist history that you sell,as fact.As is what liberals are famous for doing.It was the anti-american,islamic gihadist sympathyizing media,politicians,and their,useful idiots.Who made that claim,not bush,and cheney.As liberals can’t walk,and chew gum,at the same time.So you automatically believe.the greatest military in the world,military in the world can’t either.The only took so long to get bin laden,and win the iraq war!Because the entire democrat party,congress minus joe lieberman.was obstructing our military at every turn.With a daily drumbeat of false claims accusing bush,cheney,and our cia,and military,while in the heat of war,of war crimes,intentionally to incite the terrorist,threatening,and accusing them of war crimes,for,making war on true evil.The same evil ideaologies liberals,have a slobbering love affair with everyday of their life.which is satanism.which is,shari’a law compliant islam,as well politically correct compliant liberalism.both the politics,of death worship,of human live,rights,and liberty.The same obama,who is taking all the credit,for,what president bush’s policies,accomplishes.the same barack obama who tried to frame three navy seals just a few years ago.who were charged with abuse,of the terrorist,who murdered an hung,4 of their comrades from a obama could satisfy,his pals,from C.A.I.R.,Muslim brotherhood,hamas,and hezbollah.the same obama.who just a month ago,threatened to shut down government,and cut-off the pay,of our military while in the heat of battle to suffer their families at home.Unless the republican party,agree to deny the religious,freedoms of pro-life americans,using extortion,and bribery tactics,to force them to pay for the blood lust genocide,committed by planned deadbeat parenthood,and the national organization of pedophilic,genocidal,revengeful,and predatorial women.but is what all liberals who demanded the release of abu ghraib photo’s,caskets of our military hero’s,and deny the pay of our military.Are anti- human life,and liberty.Who hate those,sacrificial lambs,such as our military,especially god,jesus christ,and others who are about sacrifice,who save lives,and propose liberties to others.because liberalism is on a world crusade with their islamic gihadist hero’s,and marxist communist regimes,to destroy lives,and liberty,to any who are inconvienient,or who do not fit into the satanic blood lust,hate filled death worship,that they do!As for them.Any who dis-agree,object,or refuse to submit to their, murder,rape,and plunder lifestyles.according to them should not have the right to exist!!!Jimmy Joe “The Liarfryer”

      Come on Jimmy Joe . Lets fore get all those excuses why bush did not go after bin laldden. He did not need a excuse to go after saddam. He did not need a excuse to stage a rescue on a captured femile. That was a fake. George is George and the rest of his followers. Now look at what is next to follow him in that party.

    • Augie D

      J.J., Calm down. “We’re only in it for the money” (frank zappa). It’s always been “Us or Them” (pink floyd). Since the dawn of history, there has always been a struggle of power. The major empires all came and went. They proceeded to kill millions of innocent civilians in their conquests. Thousands of years later, there’s no difference. The Roman Empire is alive and well, in the Anglo-American Empire. Doing what empires do best…conquer other lesser empires. Steal their resources, and kill anyone who gets in the way.

      It really doesn’t matter who is in the administration. The orders are handed down through the Industrial Military Complex, as well as the World Bankers, who just stole trillions of dollars away from your average Joe American. It’s not Obama that controls the U.S. Nor is it any governmental stooge. The real players are off the board where you can’t see them. Just like a magic show…all the tricks are hidden from the audience.

      Who’s telling Bernanke to flood the economy with paper currency? Who’s setting the gasoline prices?

      Sit back, listen to some good music, and watch “the end of this system of things” (Jesus Christ). Peace out!

  • Jim

    I have the feeling this was just a big show! Osama has been dead for years…I’d bet…and, at a time of Obamas choosing, the killed COPY of Osama was brought out and buried at sea so NO proof can be had.

    How many lies can be thrown at us before we say “ENOUGH!” Our government has become a most deceptive government! With this and Bush’s “War On Terror”, I’ve had enough!

    OK, we got the bad guy….lets go home! Bring ALL THE TROOPS HOME! I haven’t seen Terror or which country he/she comes from yet. So, until we can put a face or nation on this enemy called Terror, I suggest pulling out of every place before America makes the entire planet its enemy! I mean really…what fool of a country declares a national security emergency, tightens up on people getting on and off planes, but neglects those coming across their borders? Are we having a war on Terror or not? Good God, the Mexican cartels are more of a terrorist group of concern than any jihad right now.

    I say, if they are an incumbent to the Senate or the House or the Oval Office…..kick-um all out…. and NEVER PUT A DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN IN OFFICE AGAIN!!! ELIMINATE ALL PARTIES AND HAVE ALL INDIVIDUALS RUN ON THEIR OWN PLATFORM OF BELIEFS! THE CANDIDATE SHOULD KNOW THEIR OWN HEARTS AND MINDS WELL ENOUGH TO COMMUNICATE THE TRUTHS/FACTS ABOUT THEMSELVES TO US. (forgive the caps….not yelling…just changing the look to make a point) (…and who ever determined caps means yelling should have their head examined)

    So far we have seen only contentions that OBL was wasted. Zero evidence has been produced, and the body was allegedly disposed of. None of the shooters is a DNA expert, and there is no chain of evidence connecting the disposed of corpse to anything, including OBLs alleged DNA specimen(or his aunties alleged specimen).

    This execution could not be proved in court and could well be a political ploy to convince the dummys that the Traitor-in-Chief is a loyal American- who burns the flag, aids our enemies and weakens our defenses while raping our constitution and destroying our economy. when he is not busy butchering unborn children and promoting sodomy.

    Eighty five per cent of the American public knows Bin Laden is dead and the other fifteen per cent will never accept the fact he is dead.The percentages are about the same with the birthers and also the fact that 15% of the American public is mentally challenged.That is why we should not look down on the non-believers they don’t really know any better and probably are nice people in general.

      Hey jopa, it appears that you have the only intelligent reponse.

      Actually Jopa I agree with you about the death of Bin Laden and conspiracy theories but I take exception about your assertion that people who question “facts” from “those in authority” are mentally challenged. I for one am glad that there are people that will question what they hear. It is the people that question and challenge the status quo that in effect proliferate accountability.

      Jopa says: Eighty five per cent of the American public knows Bin Laden is dead, and I know this because I personally spoke to all 85% of those people, by the way, I’m not just making this stuff up, and the other fifteen per cent who aren’t as gullible as me, will never accept the fact he is dead, or that he was just recently assassinated.The percentages are about the same with the birthers, you know, the ones who are always trying to confuse the issue by demanding, of all things, facts, and also the fact that 15% of the American public, of which I can assure you I’m not, is mentally challenged.That is why we should not look down on the non-believers, or people who are always asking for facts, they don’t really know any better, unlike me of course, and probably are nice people in general, although I can’t say for sure since I actually never met any of them. I hope this helps!

  • Mr. 67

    Patriots this is all a fabricated story to raise Obama’s ratings. In the situation room how come Representative John Boehner or Senator Grassley were not there to watch the video of the alleged incursion into northern Pakistan?

    Why no millions of angry Muslims in the streets over the killing of their religious hero? The footage we saw on T.V. were only a group of about 40 who looked like their clothing just came out of the dry cleaners. Hollywood show business shot somewhere.

    They showed footage of the building with the same floor plan as where Bin Laden was supposed to have been killed. The Navy Seals practiced in the USA before going to Pakistan. In the ‘dry run’ they had UTUBE video of the blasting of the door down and the military entering. Why not show us the real incursion into the building or the shooting of Bin Laden’s son as he allegedly came down the stairs. They did not have to show the killing of Osama, but we are disallowed from seeing anything. So much for transparency. I believe as a writer above that Bin Laden was dead years before and our government is was in need of an ‘ace’ to make Barry Sotoreo aka Barack H. Obama a national hero.

    We got to see the dead Muslim leader killed in Iraq–Hussein, but not this man who killed 3000+ great, American citizens in the two towers and in the airplanes.

    I am not drinking the misinformation and Koolade from our government.

    We could have had Hoody Duddy as President, or no President in the Oval Office at all and our military and intelligence service would have had the same result. Without Bush’s ‘water boarding’ and tough interviewing of our agents in buildings in different parts of the world, we would not have had the knowledge as to how to capture Bin Laden, if indeed he is dead.

    Now, if we have sightings of Bin Laden they will say it was only someone who looks like him.

    Why no interviews of the ‘brave hearts?’ Tell me they could not have shaded the faces and blurred the voices of the alleged shooter and his team. If this really happened they would have repeatedly shown this on all networks. This is a put up job to make Obama look good enough for a second term in office.

    These thoughts are from a loyal Americna whose relatives have fought for America back to W.W.I. Do you know when Obama lies; when he opens his mouth.

    Show us your Passport to get to America. Show us you Official Transcipt from Columbia University. Show us your Social Security number. Show us your Selective Service paper work in Hawaii. Show us your birth certificate from Kenya with the signature of the attending physician and your newborn foot print on the left bottom of the document and give us a print of you feet now, so we can prove your are a foreign agent/an illegal alien from Indonesia the place where you were ‘brought up’ as a teenager. The truth is Barry you do not have any American citizenship papers via your birth certificate. You are a usurper, a secret Muslim cell, a fake, an imposter and were born from your biological father who was not born in the USA but in Kenya, thereby disqualifying you to be a Constitutional President.

    Let me see..Obama claims that he would put his hatred aside for our country..he and michelle have attended flag burning parties..he wishes to chnage our flag and national athem. He doesn’t wish to wear a flag pin because it’s too opressive to the muslim world. He states he will disarm america if elected. He wishes to see our country become like the ‘peaceful islam countries in the middle east.’ Did no one watch ‘meet the press’? Or are americans that stupid. Regardless we are ‘enjoying’ the fruit’s of Obama’s labour’s. Muslims get a free pass at the airport while frail eldery and innocent children are sexually molested. Muslims are opted out of obamacare and yes in the 2000 pages of obamacare is a muslim tax on unbeleiver;s. Obama has given your country to our enemy and by the way if you haven’t guessed yet..we american’s are the enemies be punished. I wouldn’t be surprised if obama allowed millions of muslims worldwide into our country at our expense..why are we allowing this?

    How miraculous that we were able to go in undetected (by anyone), be unopposed by guards, take out Osama, grab enough intel to fill the bottom floor of the Pentagon (exaggeration), but leave behind a significant part of a super-duper, neat-o, highly sophisticated, technologically advanced chopper. WOW! What a detail to miss by this very, very special team. All this, in addition to the most incredible timing of it all!

    Then, as if all that wasn’t amazing enough, there is a single individual, up at this precise hour, on his computer, on Twitter, close enough to the scene to give details. I ask you, what are the odds?

    I believe Obama made the deal of all deals. He has been very cozy with his Muslim brothers, favoring Pakistan over Israel, bowing to everyone. I believe Obama traded that super-duper, neat-o, highly sophisticated technology (chopper) for “intel”, and perhaps Osama, but we’ll probably never know for certain who, if anyone, was fed to the sharks.

    I just pray Americans are smart enough to remember who Obama is, and has shown himself to be this whole time, and also keep in mind that he will do anything to stay in control of this country.

    barry and the people behind him are spending their time trying to build an image for the goat herder in the white house, they knew where obl was living since last august and i believe they were holding off this raid until a political opportune time and they were forced to move sooner than desired.
    this killing of obl was against the will of barry and he spent hours on his rug praying, however, the political advantage was to great to pass up.
    i believe the seals killed obl and whether they show the picture or not isn’t important. the more important thing is the democrats are letting the country slide into a depression over trying to build an image of a man that’s not worth it. the following recent email explains it all.

    The character of any man is defined by how he treats his mother as the years pass…..need I say more about this person other than that there is no character and no integrity, but there is a ton of attitude and arrogance that defines his shallow past and hollow future….I rest my case.

    I bought and read Audacity of Hope. It was difficult to read considering his attitude toward us and everything American. Let me add a phrase he used to describe his attitude toward whites. He harbors a “COIL OF RAGE”! These are his words, not mine. THIS IS OUR PRESIDENT! Is anyone out there awake? Everyone of voting age should read these two books: Don’t buy them, just get them from the library.

    From Dreams From My Father:
    “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so, I was ingratiating myself to whites.”

    From Dreams From My Father :
    “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.”

    From Dreams From My Father:
    “There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white.”

    From Dreams From My Father:
    “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.”

    From Dreams From My Father:
    “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself—the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.”

    And FINALLY ……….. and scariest statement of all:

    From Audacity of Hope:
    “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

      Yet he remains in the White House leading this country into oblivion.

    • Bud from Georgia

      Chuck: I haven’t read any of Obama’s butt wipe material, so I’ll to take your word for the content. One thing I noticed is that he seems to resent being half white. Yes, Americans, Barack Obama is not our first black president. He is your first half-white one (I have had my doubts about Bill Clinton). I can speak from my own experience on this subject. I have two children, ones mother is Korean and the other is Vietnamese. In both cases the kids have chosen to be identified as asian rather than caucasian. It is vary easy for them to find fault with “white men”. It seems that it is more popular to be some sort of minority or a hyphanated American today, ie. Vietnamese-American or Korean-American. Kids, if you come from Vietnam or Korea, you do not have the right to put another country in front of being an American. You should be ashamed. If you want to identify new minorities today, let’s put white males of europian desent at the top of the list. Sorry, Chuck I realize I have wandered a bit from your subject but I beleave you are totally correct in stating that a man can be judged by the way he thinks of and remembers his mother. A thought of my own. Ronald Regan, The Great Communicator. Barack Obama, The Great Pacafier. This idiot will say and do anything to get the vote. Please America, let’s work really hard to ditch this evil Bastard.

      • chuckb

        bud from georgia, you not only have to remove barry, but at the same time remove the people who pull his strings. i honestly don’t think he has the brain power to come in out of the rain, the bleeding hearts of our society and that goes for the republicans too, have convinced themselves this guy is some kind of intellect, he is nothing but a street smart con man. (community organizer, communist agitator).
        he is a muslim, there’s no doubt in my mind about that. i believe he is a card carrying member of the black muslim brotherhood along with eric holder.

        this latest fraud, the new birth certificate is as phony as the first one, however, they have the sheep afraid of being ridiculed if they claim differently so they win again.

        you notice the media, even fox can’t stop using the term “gutsy”, if the truth was known they probably had to threaten barry with exposure unless he agreed to kill ubl. the media has spent most of their words praising barry, while the true gutsy ones are our navy seals.
        ( i taker it back, barry was gutsy making that call. if the raid had failed, he would have gotten bad press for maybe one day, horrors!) and they would have blamed geroge bush and cheney two days later.

    Barack Obama has said he considered joining the United States military when he left school but decided not to because the Vietnam war was over and “we weren’t engaged in an active military conflict at that point”.

    The statement is thought to be the first time during the 19-month-long presidential campaign that the Democratic nominee for the White House has indicated he once wanted to serve in uniform. The aspiration was not mentioned in either of his two volumes of memoirs.

    Mr Obama was asked by George Stephanopoulos of ABC’s “This Week” programme whether he’d ever thought about military service and replied: “You know, I actually did. I had to sign up for Selective Service [a means of conscription in case of war] when I graduated from high school.

    “And I was growing up in Hawaii. And I have friends whose parents were in the military. There are a lot of Army, military bases there.
    “And I actually always thought of the military as an ennobling and, you know, honourable option. But keep in mind that I graduated in 1979. The Vietnam War had come to an end. We weren’t engaged in an active military conflict at that point. And so, it’s not an option that I ever decided to pursue.”
    All male American citizens are legally required to register for Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday.

    The Illinois senator’s newly-disclosed military ambition came after the choice of Sarah Palin as the running mate of his opponent John McCain ensured that for the first time in modern history three of the four candidates on the two presidential tickets would have a son that had served or would serve in a war zone.

    Did Barack Obama lie about signing up for Selective Service?

    Selective Service is a means of conscripting troops in the event of war. All male citizens over 18 are legally required to sign up for it. Up until this summer there were allegations spread on the web that Obama never signed up – an omission that would have rendered him ineligible to become president. 

    Barack Obama graduated in 1979.

    In 1980, President Carter re-instituted the requirement for males to register for the Selective Service (Proclamation 4771).

    Under this Senator Obama was legally required to register during July 1980.

    There is no record of his registering and his campaign will not address the issue.

    So how do we respond to McCain supporters who post negative remarks about Senator Obama’s lack of military experience and his refusal to even register?

    According to the Selective Service, approximately 23% of the males who were required to register, did not register. That means that about 800,000 failed to register that year.

    Should Senator Obama make a statement about why he did not register for Selective Service?

    • Bud from Georgia

      If there had been a military conflict underway when Obama finished school his background might be easier to track. He would still be living in Canada or someother country.

    Billy Graham’s Son Is Too Christian For Barack Obama’s Army

    Billy Graham’s son Franklin, a solid evangelist in his own right, was invited to give the address at the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer service.

    Barack Obama’s administration has revoked the invitation.

    Why? Well, it turns out Franklin Graham really believes in Christ and holds that Christ really is “they way and the truth and the life.”

    Consequently, Franklin Graham has spoken out about Islam — the only religion to see its followers carry out violent terrorist attacks on the United States in the name of that religion — and its violent ways.

    The Council on Islamic-American Relations and other Islamic groups got upset with Franklin Graham pointing out the truth.

    So the Obama Administration caved.

    Army spokesman Col. Tom Collins confirmed today, that at the Army’s request, the Pentagon Chaplain’s Office had contacted Graham to withdraw the invitation extended to him to be the main speaker at the Pentagon’s observance of the National Day of Prayer.

    You’ll note it says Army. True, but it was Obama appointees who made the call. Let’s not obfuscate whose responsibility it is.

  • Jay

    Back during the campaign, there were veterans that came out for Barack Obama saying that he would be the best person to represent veterans in the future.
    Still thinking that, are we?

    Over the last several days, we have seen exactly what President Obama thinks of veterans — and it isn’t much, from what I can tell. Culminating with his (failed) initiative to charge veterans’ insurance companies for such things as combat-related injuries, the current administration is showing that it is certainly not thinking of the best interests of veterans.

    Combining this gaff with his upcoming intention to eradicate and “un-fund” defense programs, on top of an almost-certain alteration of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) regulation, Obama is likely to become the most unpopular CinC since Carter.

    In Carter’s time, we were coming out of the Vietnam era, and he set in motion changes that were felt for years: emasculating the NCO corps, erasing funding for training, and pushing development of programs that had no future basis for the military. All of these combined to produce two career-ending events for him — Desert One and the Iranian Hostage crisis. Obama, God forbid, will only have to deal with Iraq and Afghanistan.

    What this insurance debacle has shown us is that Obama has no intention of keeping the campaign promises he made to moderates and veterans. A campaign statement he made to veterans to ‘‘not let you down’‘ has gone under the bus. Even the first lady is getting caught up in it. Just over a week ago, she was in Camp Lejeune meeting with families, promising to help them, and recognizing their struggles with the deployments.

    Did the president and first lady think that drastically altering veterans’ insurance would in any way help the families? How? I can’t see it.

    Could Mr Malloy get in trouble for threatening the life of a former POTUS?

  • Sutekh

    The escalated number of civilian deaths that Mr. Obama caused by aggressively going after bin Laden with drones, based on incorrect information, shows how insensitive he is to indiscriminate killing to make political gains. In two years in office, he has killed 86% more civilians in the Afghan (read: ‘bin Laden’) War than Bush did in 8 years.

    We should all remember this whenever we read about how Mr. Obama, Mrs. Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi want all of our guns to be surrendered to the U.N. — which is run by tinhorn third world dictators who agree with Mr. Obama that civilians are nothing more than collateral damage.

    Teddy Roosevelt said, “Walk softly and carry a big stick.” The Obama corrollary to that seems to be similar to Bush’s: “Don’t hesitate to use the stick if it might get you votes for short term electoral gains.”



  • http://n/a Terry

    It seems to me with separation of powers betwween the 3 branches of govt, as stated in the Constitution, the president is not authorized to do anymore than arrest a person of interest like bin L. His guilt is to be determined in a court of law and then penalized per legal dictates. The president cannot legally just declare he is guilty and then have him executed. When will O turn his judgement on you, or me, for disagreeing with him? And have us thrown in prison or placed before a firing squad, or beheaded? Like they do in islam where the whole legal system seems to be just one kangaroo court after another. Islamic justice is shoot first, determine guilt later? Now O has brought this to America! How long is congress going to allow O to violate the Constitution before they defend the Constitution of the United States? The president can never be a judge, and the SC can never be the president!

    O does not seem to have any sense of restraint in what the office of the president is legally allowed to do. Surely this is no brainer legal question. O has exceeded his power authorized by the Constitution. The SC should just evict him from office and send him into exile for his own safety. The rule of law that exists in America is jeapordized by O and his disreard for presidential powers determined by constitution. His brazen declaration of war against Libya by his attacking another country is just further proof of his disregard of our Constitution. He is acting like an ayatollah with supreme presidential power.

  • Hobbit Baggins

    Panetta a hero? He was Osama’s handler. Osama was a patsy. Do a search for Army War College, 9/11, Mossad, Dr. Alan Sabrosky, former director of studies there. The real culprits are still walking free and we are sending them military and monetary aid. Why? This was just a publicity stunt done in an attempt to boost Obama’s ratings, it did not work any better than the new fake birth certificate did. The “DNA testing” could not have been done so quickly, it takes a minimum of 48 hours. Also to distract from the economy and the lack of radiations readings. All monitoring stations have been shut down so there will be no cause of concern for the levels. No levels. Wake up, Sheeple!

  • http://n/a Terry

    News item:
    President Barack Obama is reassuring the public that jobs and the economy are his top priority.

    How quickly we went from the assassination of bin L, to a big time event at the 9-11 site to this press release but really no info about what he is doing other than reassuring somebody. All of this was orchestrated and scheduled featuring O, not the assassination of bin L nor the 9-11 families. Could he have really thrown together such a meeting on a moment’s notice? And then all the cheering by Americans when the assassination was announced. Spontaneous? Or a muslim type rally that uses paid performers? Oops, an out pouring of cheering over bin’s death? In islam their marches pumping clinched fists in the air are just hot air by demonstrators on the govt payroll. These demonstrators here must have been part of move on, or a union rally, and also an organized event. Media shots were taken from afar and no one was interviewed. Speaking of the no more war gang. Where were they when O attacked Libya?

    The reason O gets away with all his stuff is he is the master of political surfing. He just hits the high points, favorable to him of course, and then he is off to another diversion so the lack of substance will soon be forgotten in the rush of new and wonderful things O is doing to America, oops, for America. He does nothing except for his own personal political gain. And he is running roughshod over the Constitution.

    Unfortunately our congress does not seeem to have anyone that is dedicated to the nation! They probably are enjoying the good life and all the attention they get so just don’t have time, inclination or training to do things for the country. This is a radical departure from the motivation and training at home our GIs spoke about and demonstrated in WWII.

    This is not to suggest there are no patriots in America or in our armed forces. There are many still in America. Just not any among our elected officials. PC DC is so politicized that honor or an honest difference of opinion are not allowed in either party! And partly our govt has been corrupted by money from the “establishment”.

    Jokes is no joke that americans are waking up to high gas prices; food, medical.utilites. And a constant bombardment of our freedoms. Since Obama has been in office we have a BP oil spill..terrorist’s attacks..division everywhere we look..confusion. Its been said america has in all its years a hidden tax americans are paying through the nose but not een aware of.. We have a congress that is so corrupt and out of control. Raising their colas while they deny the poorest of our society(the eldery) a cost of living increase. They took billions of dollars out of medicare and are now cutting another 70 billion from it. Sounds like a war on the baby boomers. We have a healthcare coming that isnt about healthcare..its a grab for more power and it is an atrocity.A country divided can not stand. Obama is trying his darnest to destroy us and our country. If he is re-elected he will go in for the ‘kill’ and finish off his agenda. Can you image..obama gave billions of your tax dollars to Brazil for drilling oil ”near our shores’ yet denying americans to drill for iol off their shores.

  • chuckb

    the media is reporting the price of gas will be $3.50 pg this summer so says the so called oil analyst. (oil analyst are propagandist for the different dealerw association throughout the country)isn’t it strange the price can be predicted at any time, where has the competition in the gas market gone? the oil companies can raise their price anytime they want to rake in more profit, with any kind of fabricated excuse.
    you will note any time there is a reported possibility of an interruption in the oil supplies, prices soar and so do the oil company profits. the first excuse they used in the seventies, the world is running out of oil, billions of dollars profits later, they buried that one, next their was a refinery fire somewhere, this disrupted oil supplies all over the world, the fire if any was probably started by the refinery, then if a terrorist shot an oil field worker, bang another shortage, rumor of war in nigeria, another oil shortage, on and on they go. the politicians, speculators and oil companies all profit from the commodities market. you wonder why the administration doesn’t want us to drill for our own oil, that would kill their golden goose and barry wouldn’t be able to force his battery operated sardine can on the public and feed the general motors auto unions, who by the way are in the hole and it looks like they won’t be able to payoff the loan barry gave them.

    Yes and the American taxpayers are never going to be remebused for the government motors stunt. The jug eared purple lip marxst muslim bastard and his cummunist/socialist smucks are going to sell of government motors shares at at least 25-30$ loss. Talk about stupid government pukes, since we are getting really hosed if we sell, taxpayers might as well sit and wait untill the marxist/communist socialist bastards are out of office. We might as well sit tight and wait.

    Obama is quoted as saying he will disarm america to an acceptable level to our middle eastern brethern and we should redesign our flag and national athem to better offer our enemies hope and love. Yet obama attended a hate filled church for decades . The ministry of this church is founded on a book that espouses ‘the destruction of the white enemy’..An absolute church of hatred and then obama turns around to offer our enemies hope and love???!! By dismantling our countries national defense. Yelp he hates us and wishes to destroy white america.

    I don’t think America has so quickly forgotten why we are having our present recession. President Carter is still bragging about “His great economy”. He allowed people to buy houses they could not afford while the government guaranteed the mortgage. It boosted housing construction, sales and investments while pushing adjustable rate and “balloon” rate mortgage financing supported by the government. President Clinton was the only president with guts enough to ask the congress to do something about it and protect the country and congress ignored him. President Bush also ignored it. Now President Obama has to deal with it. Our media does not have any integrity and it won’t report the truth about it, but America knows. We watched it happen.
