Senator & Representative … Crazy As An Outhouse Mouse

Hillary Clinton 1

We have a Speaker of the House crazy for giving Obama most of what he wants and if he isn’t removed from his position he’ll have his way in giving Obama all of what he desires.

We have a RINO senator from Arizona, who actually ran for President in 2008, now acting as suitor for the worse Secretary of State we have ever had the bad fortune to experience.

The United States is increasingly going to hell in a hand-basket thanks to politicians that have little courage to perform their jobs in an honest and efficient way. You can read about one such politician from a Washington Post article starting below:

John McCain to host Hillary Clinton in Sedona, Ariz.

Since leaving the State Department last year, Hillary Rodham Clinton has racked up scores of accolades and appeared on many a big stage. Still, it might come as a surprise that a past Republican presidential nominee — specifically, the one who is among the loudest critics of Clinton’s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attacks — would invite her to his desert retreat for a lofty conversation about leadership values.

This is precisely what Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has done.

Clinton, a prospective 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, will appear on stage Saturday with McCain at the Sedona Forum, an annual ideas festival hosted by the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University. Clinton is among the national and international business leaders, philanthropists and public figures appearing at the gathering, held in Sedona, the tony red-rocks oasis in Arizona’s Verde Valley.

In a statement released Thursday, McCain called Clinton “my friend” and praised her public service career.

“From her years of service as first lady, in the U.S. Senate and the State Department, one would be hard-pressed to find a leader with Secretary Clinton’s informed perspective on the many challenges facing America across the globe,” McCain said.

The above is pure bull butter and McCain should be ashamed of himself, even though he is a bad republican, he is not ignorant enough not to know that Hillary was of questionable value during her tenure at attempting to be Secretary of State.

Profile: Col. George Everett ‘Bud’ Day


A Great American Patriot, RIP


By Mark Alexander

August 1, 2013


“Gentlemen, you will permit me to put on my spectacles, for, I have grown not only gray, but almost blind in the service of my country.” –George Washington (1783)


A few days ago, I received the latest copy of “The Hook,” a seasonal journal of carrier aviation published by the Tailhook Association.


I was deeply moved by this summer’s edition because it included a reprint of “Honor Bound1,” a Pentagon study of bravery, torture and endurance — and the experience of American POWs in Vietnam.


The Hook then listed the names of Navy and Marine POWs who made it home, including John McCain2.


Later that same day, I heard remarks at a White House press conference that should be of interest to the families of the 58,209 Americans killed in Vietnam.


Barack Hussein Obama3, while sitting with Vietnamese Communist Dictator Truong Tan Sang under a portrait of George Washington, had this to say about what our nations have in common: “We discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.”


Obama, of course, is a phony “community organizer” who was steeped in Communist indoctrination4, and who launched his political career in the home of domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Thus, he may not be able to distinguish between the Essential Liberty5 codified by our Founders in the Declaration of Independence as “endowed by our Creator6” and the murderous regime of “Uncle Ho,” a brutal Stalinist pig who slaughtered a HALF MILLION peasants when consolidating his oppressive communist regime in Vietnam. Most of us, however, understand that Ho was no Thomas Jefferson.


After the signing of the Paris Peace Accords in 1973, which were intended to end the war in Vietnam, Ho went on to butcher anyone who had given aid to American military personnel.


The disconnect between Obama’s outrageous and surreal comments about Ho and the bravery of Patriot Vietnam POWs like John McCain and my friend Roger Ingvalson7 was driven home this past weekend with the death of a man who was also a POW at the Hanoi Hilton with McCain and Ingvalson — Air Force Col. George Everett “Bud” Day.


While these men were suffering unspeakable torture, Hanoi Jane Fonda8 was posing a hundred yards away on an NVA anti-aircraft gun, and now-Secretary of State John Kerry9 was “aiding and abetting the enemy10” and undermining the Paris peace talks.


At least Fonda feigned an apology11 this past April, saying, “I take responsibility for my actions. … I made an unforgivable mistake when I was in North Vietnam, and I will go to my grave with this.”


No such apology from Kerry.


At times, the Obama regime’s fog machine makes it difficult to maintain clear focus on the long line of American Patriots12 who have devoted their lives and fortunes to extending Liberty to successive generations, and those who strive to do so today. But then, the passing of a great Patriot helps us cut though the fog and bring the legacy of such Americans back into focus.


John McCain said of Bud Day, “He was the bravest man I ever knew, and his fierce resistance and resolute leadership set the example for us in prison of how to return home with honor.”


Brave indeed, but Bud Day’s beginning was unremarkable, as is the case with so many great Patriots.


He was born in Sioux City, Iowa, and in 1942, at the age of 17, he convinced his parents to allow him to enlist in the Marine Corps.


After three years serving in the South Pacific, he returned home and earned bachelor and law degrees. He also joined the Iowa Air Guard in 1950 and pursued a fighter pilot track. After flying F-84s on fighter-bomber missions in the Korean War, Day decided on a career as an Air Force pilot.


In 1967, then-Major Day headed a squadron of F-100s in Vietnam, assigned to a secret program nicknamed the Misty Super Facs. He and his men were tasked with flying deep into enemy territory and selecting targets. So dangerous was this operation that more than 40 percent of his pilots were shot down in the first six months. On August 26th of that year, Day’s own plane was disabled by enemy fire, and he ejected, landing in the gun sights of Vietnamese militiamen.


After several days of torture, he escaped and evaded the enemy. He was recaptured two weeks later after being wounded by a bomb that detonated nearby. He was returned to the same camp from which he escaped and was subjected to more severe torture before being marched off to the Hanoi Hilton, where he would spend the next five years.


Day’s Patriotism and his epic resistance to relentless degradation and torture by his captors is profiled in the book “Medal of Honor: Portraits of Valor Beyond the Call of Duty.” His citation in that book notes, “On one occasion in 1971, when guards burst in with rifles as some of the American prisoners gathered for a forbidden religious service, Major Day stood up, looked down the muzzles of the guns, and began to sing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’ The other men, including Navy POW James Stockdale, the ranking U.S. officer in the prison, joined him.”


Later, Vice Admiral James Stockdale, who was also awarded a Medal of Honor13, recalled of that moment, “Our minds were now free and we knew it.”


George Day was released on March 14, 1973, and three years later both he and Stockdale were awarded the Medal of Honor by President Gerald Ford. His Medal of Honor citation14 concludes, “Col. Day’s conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Air Force and reflect great credit upon himself and the U.S. Armed Forces.”



After rehabilitation, Day returned to the flight line. Retiring in 1977, he opened a law practice in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, and devoted that practice to seeking support for veterans.


He was active in politics, most notably in his support for John McCain in 2000 and 2008, and George W. Bush in 2004, when Day worked with the Swift Boat Vets to expose the truth about John Kerry’s fraudulent and self-aggrandizing tour in Vietnam, and his treasonous actions afterward. (As was the case in the most recent presidential contest between Obama and Mitt Romney, the list of distinguished military patriots15 has always favored the Republican candidate.)


As tough and heroic as he was, Day was described by friends as a “gentle and humble soul.”


In 2011, when he was inducted into the Iowa Aviation Hall of Fame, he remarked of his service to our nation, “It was a great spirit of sacrifice and help [for] each other and high standards. You get those values from your parents, from your church. They expected a lot from us as kids, and we either gave it to them or they gave you a little corrective action.”


In his personal narration of his heroic service16, Col. Day concluded, “We are so fortunate by the accident of birth to be Americans, and having had that good fortune, our primary duty is to make sure our country survives and we stay free. That ought to be the primary objective of every American for the rest of their life.”


Bud and his wife Doris celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in May, and on the afternoon of his death she said, “He would have died in my arms if I could have picked him up.”


Of the passing of such extraordinary Patriots as George “Bud” Day, Gen. George Patton once wrote, “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” Gen. Patton’s words not withstanding, I will do both: I will mourn the passing of Bud Day and thank God he lived.


Job well done, good and faithful servant!


(Footnote: I highly recommend further reading on Bud Day, starting with his 1989 autobiography, “Return With Honor.”)

Out: We Need To Be Out Of Syria & Other Such Places

Enough is enough.  When this nation has switched fully into partnering with and arming militants consistently killing Christians and innocent children and women who were unarmed, then we need to hang our heads with the utmost humbleness and shame for what we have allowed this nation to come to.

In the past several weeks some Syrian rebels have beheaded several Christian men, killed women and children and chanted a well-known term used with clear glee and jubilation.  The “commander,” of one rebel unit sliced into a man’s chest until the heart was exposed;  he continued the slicing until the man’s liver was visible.  Not content with this mutilation, the commander removed the heart and liver.  While the commander placed the heart in his mouth and held it with his teeth and left hand, the liver was held in the right hand.

Syrian rebels are now armed with weapons supplied by the United States and it is likely this nation will become bogged down in the muck and mire of yet another nation, fighting the same sort of people we fought in Iraq, that we are fighting in Afghanistan, and in all probability in places about which we’ve not been informed.

While I generally do not trust or support the United Nations, they have stated:

It is impossible to choose unequivocally good guys among the groups of Syrian rebels and send weapons to them. This warning was voiced by chairman of the UN independent panel investigating possible violations of human rights in Syria Paulo Sergio Pinheiro on Friday.

Besides having a president and an administration, neither of which have never met a lie they would have trouble using, we have Senator John McCain (R-AZ) a hero of action in Vietnam, now believing he is right on immigration and Syria.  Sadly and unfortunately he is wrong on both issues.  Both issues will eventually cost many innocent American lives, but our ruptured government is clueless or deceptive … maybe both.

From Obama: An Answer Or A Diversion

ABC Hypes Obama ‘Coming Out Swinging’ Over Libya, Ignores Tough Fox Question on Responsibility

Published: 11/15/2012 12:53 PM ET
  • Print This Article

The journalists at ABC News on Wednesday and Thursday hyped the President for “coming out swinging” and showing “presidential anger” by defending his United Nations Ambassador, Susan Rice, over Libya. These World News and Good Morning America reporters downplayed the issue of what the Obama White House knew and when.

During the November 14 White House press conference, Fox News’ Ed Henry spoke of the families of the four Americans who died during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya. He directly pressed, “…[They] have been waiting for more than two months. So I would like for you to address the families, if you can. On 9/11, as Commander-in-Chief, did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives?”  [MP3 audio here.]

Instead of highlighting this angle, World News anchor Diane Sawyer began her program by exclaiming “…[Barack Obama] came out swinging in defense of one member of his team and ABC’s Jonathan Karl was right there in that room asking questions.”

Karl, ABC’s representative at the White House, was one of two reporters to ask about Libya. His question played up a fight between Obama and Senator John McCain:

Senator John McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham both said today that they want to have Watergate-style hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, and said that if you nominate Susan Rice to be Secretary of State, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. As Senator Graham said, he simply doesn’t trust Ambassador Rice after what she said about Benghazi. I’d like your reaction to that. And would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that?

A decent query, but not one that gets to the facts over what happened and when in Libya.

On Wednesday night, Karl touted, “There was a real flash of presidential anger on the topic of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.”

At the very end of his segment, the reporter did allow that Senator Lindsey Graham told the President in a statement: “Don’t think for one minute that I don’t hold you responsible.”

Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin has repeatedly highlighted the discrepancies between what the White House has claimed and what facts on the ground seem to suggest:

After more than nine weeks of trying to reconcile their story line with that of the State Department and the CIA, the Pentagon finally released its time line of the Libya terror attack during a Friday afternoon, off-camera briefing with an official who could only be quoted anonymously.

However, while the Petraeus resignation has since dominated attention in Washington, an examination of the military’s version of events reveals a number of discrepancies and gaps worth closer scrutiny.

On Thursday’s Good Morning America, George Stephanopoulos cheered the President for being “very forceful in defending Ambassador Rice.” Martha Raddatz deemed it a “very strong defense.”

She helpfully pointed out, “Of course, it was the intelligence community that briefed Susan Rice before she went out on all the Sunday shows saying this might have started because of protests, George.”

Stephanopoulos insisted Rice was “working on CIA talking points.” Like Karl, neither journalist focused on the facts in the way that Henry did.

A transcript of the November 14 World News segment can be found below:


DIANE SAWYER: Tonight, drawing the line. The President weighs in on your taxes, the Petraeus scandal and issues a blazing challenge to those criticizing his UN ambassador on Benghazi.

BARACK OBAMA: They want to go after somebody? They should go after me.


DIANE SAWYER: We begin with the President. Eight days after his re-election, energized and diving straight into the headlines. At his first press conference today, he talked about the scandal that took down the head of the CIA, the looming fiscal crisis that could raise taxes for everyone on January 1st and then, he came out swinging in defense of one member of his team and ABC’s Jonathan Karl was right there in that room asking questions. Jon?

JON KARL: Diane, this was a confident President today, eager to lay out his agenda for the coming months, but first, he had to face questions on that scandal that has shaken his national security team. In his first comments on the sex scandal that brought down his CIA director, the President said Petraeus failed to meet his own standards, but he also praised him.

BARACK OBAMA: We are safer because of the work that Dave Petraeus has done. And my main hope right now is that this ends up being a single side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career.

KARL: He also addressed the central question : Did the scandal put national security at risk?

OBAMA: I have no evidence at this point, from what I’ve seen, that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a nag impact on your national security.

KARL: On those high steaks talks over the looming budget crisis, the President took a hard line on his bottom line. Any deficit deal must include tax increases on the wealthy.

OBAMA: More voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. So, we’ve got a clear majority of the American people who recognize if we’re going to be serious about deficit reduction, we’re got to do it in a balanced way.

KARL: There was a real flash of presidential anger on the topic of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Earlier today, Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham lashed Out at Susan rice, the leading candidate to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, because she initially suggested that the attack was a protest.

LINDSEY GRAHAM: Why would Susan Rice not get our vote? I don’t trust her.

KARL: We put that to the President. Senator Graham said he simply doesn’t trust Ambassador Rice after what she said about Benghazi.

OBAMA: If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. But for them to go after the U.N. Ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi? And to besmirch her reputation? It’s outrageous.

KARL: In a blistering response to that, Senator Graham issued a statement a short while ago, directly to the President, saying, quote, “don’t think for one minute that I don’t hold you responsible. I think you failed as a commander in chief before, during and after the attack.” In other words, Diane, this battle is just beginning.

Parenting, Homeschooling and The UN — Bad Mix

A United Nations (UN) treaty proposal has homeschooling parents protesting the treaty as a usurpation of their rights as parents to educate their special needs children in a way that will serve their children far better than any government program. If you are the parent, guardian or other relative of such a child or children, then you might want to keep up with this issue as it wends through our legislative process.  Check below for more information::

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities is a treaty that many believe “surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental control over children with disabilities.”

According to The Hillthe Senate Foreign Relations Committee was scheduled to hold the markup for the treaty on Thursday, but after hearing these legitimate complaints, South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint (R) delayed consideration of the treaty for another week.

So, according to the above, there is concern.  But as the story continues, we find there is support on both sides of the aisle. Read on:

“Parts of this treaty deals with abortion and the rights of children, issues that should be addressed by states, local governments and American parents not international bureaucrats,” DeMint spokesman Wesley Denton told The Hill. “Senator DeMint strongly opposes this treaty, as the United States is already the world leader in addressing the needs of the disabled and it’s foolish to think Americans need to sign away our sovereignty to exert our influence around the world.”

The Hill reports the the treaty has bipartisan support in the Senate, with Republicans like Sens. John Barrasso (R-WY) and John McCain (R-AZ) in support along with Democrats like Sen. John Kerry (D-MA). They argue that the treaty would extend protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act abroad.

McCain and others like him, seem always willing to pass our rights to others less able to protect us. Hardly anything the UN proposes has our best interests as a goal. All one has to do to find the truth in the foregoing statement is to look at the compositions of the human rights commission and similar commissions to see that the foxes are watching the chicken coops. Opponents are saying our rights are being deteriorated … not enhanced.

“If the Senate ratifies this treaty, it would be the first time ever that the U.S. has ratified a treaty that obligates us to recognize economic, social, and cultural entitlements as rights under domestic law,” The Home School Legal Defense Association wrote.

Santorum — and his wife Karen — expressed similar concerns about how the treaty would empower unelected international bureaucrats.

“The [UN treaty] would usurp the rights and powers of parents here in the United States to do what is best for their special needs child by placing the law of the UN above the rights of the parents,” Rick and Karen Santorum said in a statement. “It is the job of our elected representatives to preserve these rights, not hand them off to unaccountable international bureaucrats.”

Sarah Palin, A Liberal’s Worst Nightmare!

By Bob Steiner

As one who finds himself  daily reading political articles or watching the “Doom and Gloom” cadre of professional political “strategists” on the likes of CNN. MSNBC, ABC, as well as FOX News (in a few instances), I am totally dumbfounded by the amount of press coverage that Ms. Palin has received since Senator McCain and she lost the election last November.

Any logical person would think that , having been voted in, our liberal friends would now be in an elated state of euphoria, and they would be celebrating their success and the “achievements” they have made on behalf of the American People.  Their stabilizing our financial markets, nationalizing parts of the automotive industry, and perhaps, implementing a new “improved” national health plan are efforts totally in line with the programs of their communist socialist icons, Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin. For some reason though, they seem to be bothered by the actions of a provincial governor from a “backward state.” Then on July 25th, Ms. Palin chose to resign her office.  While she cited the usual political grounds (“I want to spend more time with my family”) for her decision, there may be other reasons for her action.  For example, Alaska  will have a vacant U.S. Senate seat in 2010 which she could run for.  In that position she could strengthen her Washington  base. Following this there will be another Presidential election in 2012 where she could run as the candidate for the number one or two slot.  Her Options are really open.

Since the last election the liberal attack teams of the media seem to continually harp on her “lack of experience.”  How soon they forget! It seems to me that it was just a year ago that the liberal press was touting the accomplishments of our President.  Specifically, he had worked as a Communitry Organizer for an  affiliate of “ACORN” and had also been a member of the U.S. Senate for more than 150 days. These do not appear to be stellar qualifications that I, personally, would want to put on a resume being submitted for a “Chief Executive Position”, such as President. I guess his strongest personal asset is his oratory skill  (providing his teleprompter doesn’t fall over).

Ms. Palin, on the other hand, has had several years experience as a Chief executive, first as a town mayor and then as Governor of Alaska for the last two and one-half years.  It should also be noted that even after she announced she was resigning, as governor, she had a job approval rating of 54%.  She, too, is a gifted orator and has been filling her political war chest with sizable contributions from many sources.  She has not only committed to assisting conservative candidates of her own party in the next election but also to work for like-minded  conservative candidates who are not members of her party.

After all the hoop-la being  raised in the media about this “not qualified losing candidate” ,  one could almost surmise that the liberal power brokers, as well as a few “sexist” members of her own party,  are scared to death of this gifted politician.  In the months to come, I  expect to see even more vicious attacks against her and I am looking forward to her active participation in the 2010 election.
