SecDef Given the Boot

In the shadow of the looming Ferguson, MO grand jury decision, the White House kicked Hagel on his way out the door.

Even though the Secretary of Defense resigned (under pressure), he was still given the boot.

Or maybe it was the ax?

Ferguson Aflame--Again

(Image by Bob Gorrell)

While I was at the gym this morning, I saw snippets of the rioting in Ferguson, long before I even heard about the grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Some folks are wondering why the grand jury decision was released so late in the day.

Protests erupted in several cities across the nation, including Seattle, WA.

Meanwhile, back at the epicenter, Ferguson is bracing itself for another possible night of violence and destruction.

Cities that experienced protests have been preparing for about a week now.  It's as if everyone knew ahead of time what the grand jury decision would be.

Many of us like minded folks felt this had the same "story arc" as the Trayvon Martin shooting:

1. Family, friends and most of all, racial agitators (like Eric Holder) create a myth about a black "Gentle Giant/Skittles-Eating Honor Student" being gunned down in cold blood by some white racist.

2. Such a myth is repeated by the non-FOX News networks.

3. The myth starts to wilt under close scrutiny, mostly from conservative news sites, but still remains alive.

4. A jury/grand jury decides the evidence doesn't support the myth.

5. Despite the myth-busting evidence--violence erupts.

I wish we were wrong about Ferguson, MO's trajectory.

It's as if the racial agitators and non-FOX News networks know only one formula:

A White Shooter + A Deceased Black Person = RACISM

No other factors can be entered into the equation.

SNL Schoolhouse Rock Slams Obama's Exec. Order

Leave it to Saturday Night Live to do what the rest of the non-FOX News networks refuse to do:

Criticize Obama.

In this case for his executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

The video is a Schoolhouse Rock parody of the I'm Just a Bill civics video.

Dear Leader's Amnesty Speech to His Subjects

(Image by Gary Varvel)
I didn't get a chance to watch President Obola's Amnesty Speech last night.  But the good folks at Townhall have it available for posterity.

President Obola claims his bypassing of Congress isn't amnesty and it is lawful.

And segwaying into Ebola:  In addition to the millions of supposedly healthy illegal aliens, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) will granted to several thousand people who arrived from ebola-ravaged countries.

So much for will of the people and protecting the health of our nation's citizens.

There's plenty of articles on this subject in the aftermath of Dear Leader's speech, but for the next few days I'll be busy with work and family activities.

So for now, the big question is:  How should Republicans respond to Obama's executive amnesty?

Ministry of Truth Masking Obama's Amnesty Announcement?

(Image by Chip Bok)

Our Dear Leader will be announcing his plan for "solving" the illegal alien issue.  Speculation is high that President Obola will grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens via presidential executive order.

In other words:  Circumventing Congress and the will of  "We the People."

I haven't commented on this issue yet , because as of this moment, politicians are posturing and the not-so unbiased media types are in speculation mode.

However, there's been an odd development:  ABC, NBC and CBS won't be airing the president's speech tonight.

Still, whatever the excuse rationale, I've never heard of networks not airing presidential addresses.  

Funny how Univision will break into tonight's Latin Grammy Awards for El Presidente's speech.

All of #GruberGate in Two Minutes

While we're all waiting to hear what Our Dear Leader will say about illegal alien immigration, we can at least entertain ourselves with the key sound bites of "Grubergate."

Polar Vortex Redux?

The weather has been big news these past couple of days.
Of course, we know who the "usual suspect" for this early winter storm will be...

Senate Kiboshed the Keystone Pipeline

(Image from:  The Star Tribune)

Yesterday, the Keystone Pipeline Bill failed in the Senate

I think the cartoon sums up our choices quite nicely:  Oil will be transported across the country one way or another. 

We're already seeing a surge of "oil trains" here in Washington State.

A few months ago I met with some friends who are engineers by trade (and not conservative types).  One of them said that a pipeline was the most efficient way to transport fluid.

So can we call the supposedly eco-friendly crowd "pipeline deniers?"

"F***ing" Up Everything With Iran

When President Obola isn't golfing with his buddies, he's writing letters to Islamic dictators
One source put this in very un-PC terms:  It "F***s" up everything.
Of course, "f***ing" up everything can be applied to Obamacare, Benghazi, the "Reset Button" with Russia...etc. so on and so forth.
Even if we do get the Iranians to the Nuke Negotiations Table, I don't know how our State Department can talk tough when DOS supervisors are worried about being bullied by subordinates.
Unless our foreign policy "experts" are willing to stand up to the real bullies on the world stage, we'll help a monster break loose...

Up Next: "Net Neutrality"

(Image by Lisa Benson)

Next on President "Obola's" Hit List:  Net Neutrality--a solution to a problem no one has.

That's the best case scenario.

It's been described as the Obamacare for the internet.

Even that's not as bad as having Big Truthy watching (some of) you

I mean, this regime's administration's track record of not-so phony scandals doesn't inspire confidence in yet another well-meaning sounding regulation.

Though it's not just politicians that are pushing Net Neutrality.  Corporate coinage is being funneled into the coffers of various for/against politicians for the upcoming battle royale.

To his credit, the FCC Chairman is resisting President Obola's net neutrality push--for now.
