Foreign Funding for Hillary's Coffers

Well it looks like the Clintons are up to their old tricks.

I fear this will be just one of many stories ignored by leftist media outlets between now and Inauguration Day 2017.

Presidential Seal of Disapproval

(Image by Steve Breen)
Well after all the hoopla over Rudy Giuliani's accusation that Obama doesn't love America, Our Dear Leader proved this supposed love two days ago--by vetoing the Keystone XL Pipeline.

An engineer friend, (who's not a conservative), told me that the most efficient way of transporting a liquid is through a pipe.

However, Obama seems to think our current means of transporting oil is safe enough...

A Tangled Web the Governement is Weaving

(Image by Lisa Benson)

While ISIS and Obama's lackluster response has been seizing the headlines, another story may soon be on the front pages tomorrow:  The implementation of "Obamacare for the Internet."

This of course, depends on how the five commissioners of the FCC will vote, but the Vegas odds are that the three Democrats will outvote the two Republicans and impose a 332-page set of regulations upon web users.

In other words:  Get ready for a government takeover of the internet.

I attached this cartoon in an e-mail response to friends, with my own caption:  "Ahead dial-up speed.  Engage!"
To be honest, my tech savviness equals the square root of jack.  So I don't know how this will affect us small-scale users.

But if the IRS "phony scandal" has taught me anything, it's to be wary of "unbiased government oversight." 

Especially, since this particular blog of mine isn't what you'd call "leftist-friendly."

Of Praetorians and Appeasers

(Image by Glenn McCoy)

Last week, Former NYC Mayor, Rudy Giuliani made waves by stating Obama doesn't love America. The backlash was quick, even praetorians at the State Department got involved.

But Giuliani isn't backing down.

For us like-minded folks, "America's Mayor," didn't say anything surprising.  He was merely voicing our own misgivings about our Community Organizer in-Chief.

For example:  In the face of growing threats beyond the Ramparts of Civilization, Our Dear Leader is often compared to Neville Chamberlain.

But Mark Steyn wrote that such a comparison is an insult to the 20th Century's most notable appeaser.  And then reminds us near the end of his article:

We are at war with a depraved enemy, but we cannot be allowed to assert our moral superiority even to head-choppers, rapists, slavers and immolators. 

And that's why Giuliani's criticism rings true.

The Burning Tide of Barbarism

And now we'll resume discussing the ever-growing grim news at hand...

Last week, Mark Steyn penned a pensive article about the re-primitivization of Planet Earth.

For those of us who are lucky--for the moment--we can indulge ourselves by reading history.

But then there's the unfortunate souls who are living--and dying--in unfolding events of today.

The Bright Side of Jobs for Jihadis

First order of business this week:  A dose of  humor...

Maybe, if we follow some of Nate Beeler's suggestions, this Jobs for Jihadis Program won't be so bad after all.

A Phony Faux-Pas Ignored by Networks

(Image by Jerry Holbert)
If you were to watch only ABC, NBC, or CBS, to get your news from, you would never know about Marie Harf's "Jobs for Jihadis" plan.  This is because these three networks skipped the story.

Apparently, such a "phony faux-pas" is not worth bothering their un-nuanced viewers over.

If You Can't Beat 'Em--Employ 'Em

(Image by Chip Bok)

Mari Harf, the State Department deputy spokeswoman, continues to peddle her "Jobs for Jihadis" idea.  She considers her logic too nuanced for critics to understand

There's been a barrage of backlash to Harf's inane comments.

Ah, where to begin?

Ken Blackwell asks are we giving-out  shovel-ready jobs for beheaders? 

Erik Erickson reminds us that western elites often fail to confront evil.

But, according to Jonah Goldberg, there may be a silver lining to the latest Obama buffoonery, other than giving us the catchy phrase of "Jobs for Jihadis."  That is, by continually making denials about the Islamic nature of Islamic terrorism is forcing people to discuss the issue.

What I also find faintly heartening is the oft-cited article by Graeme Wood, What ISIS Really Wants is getting a lot of attention, even by the left.

Our Selfie Taker-in-Chief

(Image by Glenn McCoy)
The day before Valentine's Day, liberals were distracted from the burning world, and laughed at our Golfer-in-Chief's selfie promo of Obamacare.  (Although I've noted at least half the comments are not complimentary).

Michael Goodwin warns us of the consequences of having a president so selfie absorbed.

One of our favorite commentators, VDH, also warns of a reckoning to come.

Even though President's Day is three days past, Obama's selfie mold has been cast...

US State Department Employment Plan for Terrorists

(Image by Glenn McCoy)

While the Egyptian Air Force was bombing ISIS positions in Libya, US State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf, came up with an alternative strategy:  Help Muslim countries build their economies so the terrorist wannabees have better job opportunities.

There's just one critical flaw in her plan.  

Contrary to what her boss in the Oval Office thinks, the Islamic State is very much Islamic

The American public is taking notice and the disapproval rating of Obama's handling of ISIS is climbing.

So much for pursuing these savages...

ISIS Conducts Mass Beheadings of Christians

(Image by Gary Varvel)

Two days ago another ISIS execution video made headlines.  This time, 21 Coptic Christians were beheaded on a Libyan beach.

The Christian victims were also Egyptian, and within hours of the video's release, Egypt responded with airstrikes against ISIS positions.

British Prime Minister, David Cameron, and his Canadian counterpart, Stephan Harper, condemned mass murder of the Coptic Christians.

But what did our White House say?

Of course, Our Dear Leader's speech writer/press secretary condemned the murders, but did not acknowledge that the victims were Christians.

While this may seem like a trivial point, Mark Steyn points out that when you lie about the nature and motivation of our Islamist enemies, you end up having to lie about everything else.
