Russian-Sponsored JVs Attack Ukrainian Border Vessel

Another "JV" team made headlines a few days ago, when rebels fired on a Ukrainian border patrol vessel

Meanwhile, "madman" Putin is attempting to hold peace talks between "both sides."

US Embassy in Libya Under "Safe Keeping"

(Image by Gary Varvel)

While we've been focused on ISIS in Iraq & Syria, along with the Russian "non-invasion" of Ukraine, Libyan Islamic militants strode into our abandoned embassy and held a pool party

Rest assured, the pool partiers claim the embassy compound is secure

As an aside:  I find it interesting the video on Townhall was taken down due to a copyright infringement claim by Libya. 

Libya's descent into chaos and barbarism is just another sandtrap Obama's foreign policy ball lays buried in.

O's Top Five Foreign Policy Disasters

(Image by Bob Gorrell)
Last week we witnessed a continual stream of bad news, both within and outside Ramparts of Civilization.
 
New facts came to light in the on-going "parade of phony scandals," while our nation's enemies continue to "violate the territorial integrity" integrity of their neighbors.  
 
To summarize the issues that might lead to "overseas contingency operations," here's a list of Our Dear Leader's Top Five Foreign Policy Disasters.
 
I know.  "Only five?" you say.
 
I have a dreadful feeling there'll be more within the next couple of years, and well into the next presidential administration.

Defending Against "Invasion"

(Image by Michael Ramirez)
No, I'm not talking about manning the trenches in a desperate battle against hostile minions hell-bent on conquest.

I'm talking about Team Obama's wordplay defense in using Russia's "violation of Ukraine's territorial integrity," vs. the cruder term: "Invasion of Ukraine."

This fits right in with the slew of Orwellian-ish terms Team O cooked up, like:

--"Man-Caused Disasters" to describe terrorist attacks.

--"Workplace Violence" to describe the massacre at Ft. Hood by a self-confirmed terrorist (who by the way wants to be the new ISIS poster child).

--"Overseas Contingency Operations" to describe war.

Just to name a few off the top of my head.

I guess Our Dear Leader and his minions think that if they merely change the terminology, the American people will be too stupid to figure out what's really going on.

And speaking of stupid:

If all we're going to do is hashtag our enemies, we may as well do it with a sense of humor, like the Canadians did a few days ago.

BK's Buy-Out Whopper

(Image by Steve Breen)
I usually don't follow business news, because other than Micro & Macro Economics in undergraduate school, I have very little knowledge of big business & high finance. 

But when I'm travelling, it's almost guaranteed that at some point during my trip, I'll stop at a  Burger King for an on-the-go meal.

So it came as somewhat of a surprise that the Home of the Whopper is moving to the Great White North.

This of course, isn't the only company to leave the Good Ol' USA.  And up until now, the media hasn't been too flame-broiled about such corporate chicanery.

Most of the news stories rightly condemn the King and his Court for being a royal family of tax evaders.

But some of them miss the point in that the US has one of the highest, if not the highest, corporate tax rate in the world.

One senator is even calling for a BK boycott, along with closing the tax inversion loophole.

Between Big Business & Big Government both trying to have it their way, it's the American citizens & consumers who will be the ones eating crap sandwiches.

Sex Jihad Part II

(Image from The Daily Beast)

It's not all head-hacking on Friday night's in ISISstan.

Women are still being lured into "Sex Jihad" in order to perform "comfort roles" for jihadists.

Nor is this problem confined within the Mordor-like realm of ISIS.

In Rotherham, UK, an estimated 1400 children have been "groomed, drugged and raped"

Apparently, the cops knew about this for quite some time, but kept mum.

TGIF: The Best Day for a Beheading

Like pagans performing human sacrifices, the minions of ISIS conduct most of the maiming, torturing and killing on Fridays--Islam's holiest day of the week

Back in Iraq, ISIS issued an ultimatum to Christians:  Convert, flee or die.  The non-Muslims unfortunate enough be within ISIS's sphere of influence had a week, at the time of this news report, to comply.

Just in time for the next Head-Hacking Holiday.

Which is far more "generous" than ISIS gave these 250 Syrian prisoners.

O Failing to Learn History 101

(Image by Rick McKee)
Yesterday, Our Dear Leader said we don't have a strategy yet for fighting ISIS

Which is probably the most truthful thing he's said during his entire administration. 

Of course, a good chunk of O's cluelessness comes from failing History 101.

But in our current PC-contaminated culture, Obama isn't the only one clueless about history. 

Andrea Tantaros has irked the Asian American Journalist Association (AAJA)--for stating the obvious.

There's very little, if anything, Miss Tantaros needs to apologize for.

While Obama continues his "lead from behind," and AAJA's feathers continue to ruffle, Russian armored columns are rolling into Ukraine--and will continue to do so, no matter how much Team Obama avoids using the word "invasion."

The Real JV Team on the International Court

The White House has been trying to claim Our Dear Leader's "JV Team" comment about ISIS was taken out of context

What's also coming to light is the ISIS JVs didn't just burst into the limelight, they've been planning for varsity-level games for at least four years.

Apparently, the Jihadi JVs are earning $2 million/day selling oil on the black market.

This guy thought he had a shot with the winning team--until he found himself terminally cut.

Which leaves us with the question:  How many foreigners have signed up with the Jihadi JVs?

More "Happy Coincidences" from the IRS

(Image from Poor Richard's News via Tumblr)

Remember Lois Lerner's "destroyed hard drive?"

I know it's hard, with all the other issues swirling inside and outside the Ramparts of Civilization.

Anyway, the lost data isn't so lost after all:  Just "too hard" to retrieve.

Ah, but the "happy coincidences" continue.  Now we're finding out Lois Lerner's blackberry was deliberately destroyed.

I don't know why the IRS bothered, since anything potentially incriminating would be "too hard" to retrieve.

Strange Allies Against ISIS

(Image by Chip Bok)
Apparently, the Iranian 81st Armored Division is operating inside Iraq.

No, not as invaders in some sort of Iran-Iraq War Redux, but to fight along side the Kurds and Iraqis against ISIS.

Obama and the State Department may not be interested in a war with ISIS, or "The Islamic State," as they've been calling themselves lately.  But the Islamic State is certainly interested in eventually waging a war with us directly.

Should then, the US declare war on ISIS?
