POOR BABY!

In an interview with the Guardian newspaper published last night, the Hillary Clinton actually defended herself against criticism of her wealth by saying she’s not really “truly well off.”
“They don’t see me as part of the problem,” Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, “Because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off, not to name names; and we've done it through dint of hard work.”
Good grief! She made an $8 million advance for putting her name on a book someone else most likely wrote!

Hillary earned more with one book than the average family makes in 160 years of constant work.

Now NOBODY begrudges her what ever she can earn. But to cry "poor mouth?" Cone On! Give me an ever-lovin'-blue-eyed break!!

Brigitte Gabriel’s Answer to a Muslim Woman

The Muslim woman's question is at the beginning. Gabriel's answer begins at about 4:10 into the video.



Frank Gaffney's response at the beginning set the stage well.

I recommend that you watch the whole thing, but if you don't have time, at least listen to the question and to Gabriel's answer.

Please confine your comments to the questioner, the question and Gabriel's answer.

Our Next President? I Don't Think So

NON-BARBARIANS AT WORK AN PLAY

From one of my commenters, excusing the behavior of the militants in Iraq: They have always been tribal societies held together in various forms by strong, dictatorial, tyrants, warlords and kings.

These leaders served 2 main purposes...to give the people a sense of identity and to keep the enemies at bay.
That is their history, their culture, and all they have ever known.


Here are those poor victims of the culture at work, behaving like the only culture they have ever known:








Ethnic Shiite and Sunni Turkomen raise the grim specter of large-scale atrocities by Sunni militants from the al-Qaida-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, who have killed hundreds of Shiites in areas they captured last week.

Mission Accomplished!

So, let's think this over.

Bush got us into Iraq to save them. Obama got us out of Iraq because we showed them how to take care of themselves and be "more democratic."

Now militant radicals, who are anti American, by the way, are taking over many major cities in Iraq.

Within six months, Iraq will be indistinguishable from Iraq when Clinton was in office.

Blame Bush for "getting us into Iraq" (although he really just escalated the  fighting) ONLY if you are willing to blame Obama for the awkward, meaningless way he "got us out of Iraq."

Those people are, by-and-large, savage, uncivilized beasts who will NEVER be anything else.

Can you adapt and apply to Iraq the old saying, "You can get the boy out of the country, but you can never get the country out of the  boy?"

Go Ahead! Defend This, If You Can



Imagine having to do 10 or 20 problems like this for homework! Sounds real educational to me.

I used to have to do 100 problems in an evening the old way...but that's just me.

AND HERE ARE SOME MORE PUBLIC SCHOOL GENIUSES:




Gives you confidence about our future, doesn't it?

You Just HAVE to Feel Sorry for Her



I mean, how do you get by when you only receive 10 time the median income of U.S. families for ONE speech? That's all! It's so hard!

She must be a really good money manager...uhh...no.

But we sure do want her to manage federal finances, don't we?

Bergdahl Exchange Explained by Susan Rice

Here are some excerpts from an article by Ed Morrissey:

Of all the missteps made by the Obama administration in the swap of five high-ranking Taliban officials (including two wanted by the UN for mass murders) for Bowe Bergdahl, the two worst were ignoring the law requiring Congressional notification … and sending Susan Rice to a Sunday talk show.

George Stephanopoulos challenged Rice about the trade in the context of that record, and Rice inexplicably responded that Bergdahl had been “captured on the battlefield” and had served with “honor and distinction,” two claims that fell apart quickly, and made it appear that the White House had set up a false narrative in order to justify the trade. 

Susan Rice, who on Sunday said Bergdahl served the United States with “honor and distinction,” told 

CNN in an interview that she was speaking about the fact the Idaho native enlisted and went to Afghanistan in the service of his country.

“I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this,” Rice said. “But what I was referring to was the fact that this was a young man who volunteered to serve his country in uniform at a time of war. That, in and of itself, is a very honorable thing.”

So let me make sure I understand Rice.

When asked about the matter by G.S., Rice said he was "captured on the battlefield." Is this true? Actually, all of the evidence and testimony says otherwise. She either deliberately lied on command, made it up or is just plain ignorant on the matter.

Rice claimed that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction. When questioned about that in light of subsequent developments, she had been referring to the fact of his enlistment.

OK, so if G.S. had asked her at the time, are we supposed to believe that she would have said something like, "No, no. I don't mean he served with honor and distinction. I mean he enlisted with honor and distinction. I said 'served' but I meant 'enlisted.'" She did the one thing at which she is an expert: backtrack/cover up.

Really?

Look. I don't know that Bergdahl deserted or went AWOL. I do know that every one of his comrades said he had deserted. Am I to believe that they ALL conspired to lie? When did they do that? How would we know they did that?  Why would they do that? What would they have to gain by doing that?

I think the Obama administration (Susan Rice, most assuredly) just plain miscalculated what they were doing and had no idea that there might be unintended consequences. I believe they had neither researched nor understood the situation with Bergdahl and they thought both the President and he would be considered heroic.

That they obviously did not "vet" their situation is further evidence of the total ineptness of President BO (the amateur president).

Obama Positions Himself for a Power Grab

President BO (that amateur president) is positioning himself for a very despotic power grab before the next election(s). Under his "leadership," the Pentagon has issued a directive on military support to civilian authorities.

The directive  contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of the Army Corps of Engineers.

The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.

“This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.

Building a Better VA

The Foundary, an arm of the Heritage Foundation, has listed 5 requirements to make the VA work better. Hopefully the next administrator (Secretary) will implement these concepts, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Here is a synopsis/interpretation of the suggestions:

1. Make the VA accountable. That does not mean say, "They are accountable." That means, "Do what you are supposed to do in an honest, dependable, effecient, ethical and moral manner or face the consequences, which include (but are not restricted to): reprimand, firing, fineing and/or prison time.

2.  Employ an open door policy (like the one where I work...that would be great). Encourage employees to be a part of the process. Many times those closest to the front lines know what is needed better than the higher-ups do. They might have suggestions that need consideration. Make valid whistleblowing a positive, not a negative fraught with fear.

3.  Learn to answer questions directly and to the point. The classic liberal liar (and even the few conservative liars) uses distraction, displacement and evasiveness to avoid answering questions they don't like. Deflection is only necessary when a lie is being told.

4.  Make the VA operate at an effeciency level even higher than their private counterparts. Reauire doctors to work at least as long each day as private doctors work. My cardiologist works 12 hours most days and has to include hospital visits in facilities to which he has to drive. VA doctors are already at the hospital. Their rounds are much easier than those of private doctors. Decrease the amount of paper work VA doctors must do. The amount they do now is beyond ridiculous and leads to things like hiding appointment schedules.

5. Allow veterans more healthcare options. Veterans should be given the direct choice to access private care—based on triggers such as geographic hardships, excess wait times or a general lack of quality care. There are certain illnesses and prcedures the VA is just not equipped to handle. Those should be easily outsourced to private doctors and facilities without 17 different people considering the need before it happens. The VA doctor should have a form that says, "Send this guy (or gal) to so-and-so for such-and-such a reason because we can't handle it." That should be all the impetus needed to get the veteran cared for.

So let's get to it. If these 5 things can be accomplished by the next Secretary, he will have fundamentally transformed the VA, not for the worse, but for the better.
Isn't better better than worse in the minds of liberals?
