Saturday Morning Roundup

Remember how our Dear Leader was supposed to be “Ready to Rule on Day One?” Too bad nobody is home at the White House.

52 days in office, 52 Mistakes

Don Surber points out the fundamental dishonesty
of the Victim Disarmament Lobby:

A New York Times editorial blames America’s gun lobby for 11 deaths in Alabama — but ignores 16 deaths in “gun free” Germany on the same day.

Charles Krauthammer points out that it is George W. Bush, not Barack Hussein Obama, who was intellectually rigorous on medical ethics and science.

The supposed problem of “nuclear waste” is entirely the result of a the decision in 1976 by President Gerald Ford to suspend reprocessing, which President Jimmy Carter made permanent in 1977.

One thing Biden got right

March 9, 2009

Remember when Joe Biden said there would be countries challenging the new President, within six months of his taking office? That was one thing Joe was spot on correct about.

Latest in the parade of enemies of Freedom is Communist China. The AP reports:

The Pentagon charged Monday that five Chinese ships shadowed and maneuvered dangerously close to a U.S. Navy vessel in an apparent attempt to harass the American crew.

Defense officials in the Obama administration said the incident Sunday followed several days of “increasingly aggressive” acts by Chinese ships in the region. The incident took place in international waters in the South China Sea, about 75 miles south of Hainan Island.

Let’s see, the Iranians are building nuclear bombs, the North Koreans are launching missiles, and the Russians are taking over military bases we need to supply our troops in Afghanistan.

In case you are grasping how big a problem this is, let’s review our Dear Leader’s recent gaffe filled visit with the Prime Minister of Great Britain. That was explained, by the President’s own staff, as BHO and his team being “overwhelmed.” Wait! It gets worse!

A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama’s inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to “even fake an interest in foreign policy”. …

As I said before the election, “President Obama” is Putin’s wet dream. BHO’s own choice for VP, agreed with me, although he put a bit more politely.

Meanwhile in Iraq

December 10, 2007

Brand spanking new Iranian weapons are still being found:

“A cache of Iranian manufactured rockets was turned over to Coalition forces based at Forward Operating Base Delta, Dec. 4. Iraqi civil defense personnel delivered 14 107 mm Iranian rockets and fuses to the Kazakhstani Soldiers, said 1st Lt. Almaz Mukashev, the Kazakhstani liaison officer. The rockets were manufactured in 2006. The Iraqi civil defense personnel have turned over munitions to Coalition forces before, but this was the first delivery of Iranian weapons to Coalition forces, said Col. Peter Baker, the 214th Fires Brigade commander”.

A step toward stability

October 7, 2007

Jules Crittenden has a good idea:

“I think action against Iran’s nuclear facilities, Iran’s terrorist training camps, and the infrastructure that supports Iranian terrorism would go a long way toward creating stability in the Middle East.”

Who speaks for Shiri?

September 27, 2007

My name is Shiri Negari and I would like to speak at Columbia too, but I was murdered when Iran gave money to Hamas to blow up the buss I was on.

Sad, but all too true..

Viv La France!

August 28, 2007

Yes, the French have collectively grown a pair in at least one matter.
Accord to Reuters, who probably sees this as a “bad thing”,

French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Monday a diplomatic push by the world’s powers to rein in Tehran’s nuclear program was the only alternative to “an Iranian bomb or the bombing of Iran.”

Sarkozy said a nuclear-armed Iran would be unacceptable and that major powers should continue their policy of incrementally increasing sanctions against Tehran while being open to talks if Iran suspended nuclear activities.

“This initiative is the only one that can enable us to escape an alternative that I say is catastrophic: the Iranian bomb or the bombing of Iran,” he said, adding that it was the worst crisis currently facing the world.

You can’t make this shit up…

February 19, 2007

A DU poster who uses the handle “deaniac21” posted the following bit of what passes for “reality” in far left liberal extremist land:

The sooner Iran gets nuclear weapons the quicker all of our imperialism in the ME will end. Iran will be the savior of peace in that region and there is nothing this evil administration can do about it!

There is so much wrong with this it boggles the rational adult mind.

The Iranians are not our friends…

November 30, 2006

Bloody obvious to those who pay attention. To those who don’t, here is a slap in the face with a wet carp via ABC News:

U.S. officials say they have found smoking-gun evidence of Iranian support for terrorists in Iraq: brand-new weapons fresh from Iranian factories. According to a senior defense official, coalition forces have recently seized Iranian-made weapons and munitions that bear manufacturing dates in 2006.

This suggests, say the sources, that the material is going directly from Iranian factories to Shia militias, rather than taking a roundabout path through the black market. “There is no way this could be done without (Iranian) government approval,” says a senior official.
