And that means just about a year from now we elect Obama’s replacement. Quite honestly, none of the people running can in any conceivable circumstances be worse than Obama. And, yes, this includes Hillary – she’s corrupt and rather stupid, but I don’t think she’ll do as horrific damage as Obama has done. Of course, we’re talking someone who is 95% as bad as Obama…so, better to go with Jindal, or Cruz, or Rubio.
Still, it is a relief that we are getting to the end of Obama. Well, not the total end – he’s rather young still and we’ll have him around to expound on American life and politics for decades. But at least the pen and phone will be taken away. He’ll only be able to say asinine things – he won’t be able to do them any longer.
As an aside, Rubio won the backing of a bazillionaire who donates to GOP causes…and, of course, pro-immigration causes, because that is what our bazillionaires do. It’d be better for Rubio, I think, if he declined the assist. Let Hillary and the Democrats get money from fabulously rich people – we really don’t need it.
As another aside, for some reason illegal immigrants have got the idea that they are free to enter the US at will – and will be provided benefits when they arrive. I can’t imagine where they picked up that idea.
A bit of a
Global Warming Climate Change update – turns out that Antarctic ice mass isn’t actually declining. There are 6.36 million cubic miles of ice in Antarctica; the average thickness of the sheet is 6,500 feet (that is well more than a mile, folks) – we’re going to have to warm up more than a degree or two by 2100 to make a real dent in that.
From the Never Give Up files – Warmists are saying it will be too hot to work because of
Global Warming Climate Change.
Democrat Attorney General of Pennsylvania is charged with a bunch of criminal counts. The MSM will ignore this local crime story.
You might recall that Obama promised us that he wouldn’t have US boots on the ground in Syria. That promise has reached its expiration date. We’re sending 60 troops – which is enough for us to get some people killed, but not enough to actually change the situation. This is the Obama Doctrine in a nutshell.
Now they are saying that bacon increases your risk of cancer – this is utter nonsense. Just another silly scare-story. Here’s the deal, folks: you can’t get out of life alive. Eat what you like – but in moderation.
….but I don’t think she’ll do as horrific damage as Obama has done.
This I disagree with. I think Hillary could be much worse than Obama in that her corruption levels are much higher. Already, donations to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation are increasing in anticipation of her being in the white house, and I don’t think Bill and Hillary will stop at just selling out the Lincoln bedroom this time. I think every policy will have a price tag, and they would literally sell the Presidency this time. Imagine the speaking fees that Bill could get.
In re: to Syria, Mark I think you’re overlooking what’s really going on. Obama is just sending in advisors because ISIS is transgender intolerant. The advisors are charged with coordinating break out groups, and hosting empowerment sessions to address the gender animosity that is so prevalent in jihadists circles.
More climate change warnings:
“Incremental rises in global temperature and humidity due to climate change are likely to increase the number of working days exceeding safe levels of heat stress, which can cause absenteeism through dizziness, fatigue and nausea and even death in extreme cases,” Verisk Maplecroft said in its report.
Yet this is exactly what our ailing economy needs:
Let me say that unemployment insurance… is one of the biggest stimuluses (sic) to our economy. Economists will tell you, this money is spent quickly. It injects demand into the economy, and it’s job creating. It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name. – Nancy Pelosi
So climate change is an excellent economic stimulus and could possibly lead to full employment. It’s hard to understate the genius of Nancy Pelosi.
This is an excellent review of Hillary’s testimony at the Benghazi hearings:
Going into the year before the next election, there is some fuss about the bizarrely-named new movie “Truth”, which purports to be the facts about the Dan Rather/See BS, effort to smear George W. Bush with forged and invented papers alleging to be about his Texas Air National Guard career. As the whole thing has been so thoroughly exposed as not only a lie but a lie known to be a lie when Rather went on-air with it, the choice of the word “Truth” as the title of any movie that defends it is either a blatant last-ditch effort to legitimize a smear false from beginning to end or an illustration of pathetic delusion.
There is an interesting story about this at The Daily Signal, by a man who served in the same unit as Bush, with the same commander. It is good reading because it shows the utter contempt for truth, much less decency, that dominates the Complicit Agenda Media. The most interesting aspect of this man’s story is the focus on things other than the typographic errors that proved the Bush story to be fabricated long after reports were written on typewriters.
It ends with:
Had the media and pundits actually done real investigating, rather than exchange notes within the tribe, they would have exposed the hoax rather than leave lingering this nonsense that the documents might be authentic. Ironically, it was amateur bloggers who first uncovered problems with the memos. And, though he’s never gotten credit for it, it was a little-known writer at “The American Thinker” named Steve Gilbert who first uncovered the link between the memos supplied by Bill Burkett and their origins in the writings of Bush-hating blogger Lukasiak.
The giants of journalism with all their resources, investigative acumen, presumptuous intellects, high salaries, and undeserved celebrity should be ashamed.
They were beaten at their game by truth-seeking amateurs.”
They so wanted it to be true – because Kerry was, of course, the Great War Hero and to contrast that with Bush The Coward would have been perfect for the 2004 election. That there are issues with Kerry’s service and that his post-war activities were contemptible just didn’t register with the MSM.
Um, excuse me. It is pronounced BRO-vember. You know, the month after rocktober?
