Obama the Deal Maker

Great fanfare was made about the recent release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who has been held by the Taliban for several years, in conjunction with the release of what The Weekly Standard is describing as "five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders."

You'll forgive me if I don't share the joy expressed by many at Sgt. Bergdahl's release. I consider Sgt. Bergdahl a traitor. Harsh words? Perhaps, but allow the record to speak for itself.

I was contacted earlier this morning by a dear brother-in-Christ who's son is an Army First Lieutenant. Read carefully his son's words:

"Don't believe any fanciful garbage you read about this deserter we just got from the Taliban. He was an enemy sympathizer that abandoned his men and his post and sought to join the Taliban. We just gave up 5 of the Taliban's top guys so that we could get a traitor back. I was over there when he deserted and we stopped everything in order to find him. The entire country went on lockdown and countless assets were sent to find him. I know that several good men died trying to get him back. He told the Taliban everything they wanted, and then helped shoot their propaganda videos. This guy deserves a court martial. He's a disgrace to the uniform."

I confess that this was news to me, well because the mainstream media would never allow such news that would tarnish their King Obama's lackluster foreign policy and diplomacy record. It's all about the optics (I'll address that in a bit).

After posting to my Facebook page that I had some explosive information on the prisoner exchange, I was sent this link from another soldier testifying that Sgt. Bergdahl is a deserter. While you will not find this information in the US media, the UK Mail Online is reporting that this make-believe hero could indeed be tried for desertion.

If all of this was not enough to raise the hackles on the back of your neck, then get a load of what Debbie Schlussel is reporting:

DISGUSTING: Bowe Bergdahl’s Dad Praises allah, Makes Islamic Declaration, Calls For Release of All Gitmo Terrorists; Did Bergdahl Convert to Islam?

Always remember that Obama is a master of distraction. One of his mentors is Saul Alinsky who wrote this in his book, "Rules for Radicals":

The eighth rule: Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

Barack Obama is keeping the pressure on while removing it from him. With the VA, IRS, and releasing of tens of thousands of illegal aliens scandals, the fanfare around Sgt. Bergdahl's releases is a different tactic and action for the purpose of distracting the media from his ineptitude.

Barry Is No Harry

truman_buck_stopsHere is a famous picture of President Harry S. Truman with a sign on his desk that says, "The Buck Stops Here."

While I would not have agreed with much of President Truman's domestic policies, when it came to foreign policy he was a hawk compared to many of his predecessors.

What you could always admire about "Give "Em Hell Harry" is that he was plain-spoken and intellectually honest. Again, that doesn't mean you would always agree with him, but you could respect him.

Here's a video of Harry Truman in his later years explaining a president's level of responsibility:

In fact, Barack Obama has invoked a revised version of President Truman's famous saying:

The problem is Barry, no one is buying "The Buck Stops With Me" mantra. Just take a look at these highlights from this past week's press conference to the failure of ObamaCare. Please watch the whole video because it is very revelatory:

You are watching a man completely disconnected from reality and suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. When you watch the press conference, there is no way this man is allowing the buck stop to with him. He can say it does, but his mangled explanations were still deflections of responsibility for the complete and unresolvable failure of ObamaCare.

Truman Obama ResizedIn light of this, we have a new picture, call it a revision of Harry Truman, because Barry, you're no Harry. (Hat tip Jason Zoglmann)

Obama Obfuscations

obamanocchioHere are my brief thoughts on Barack Obama's speech on Syria on the eve of 9/11.

Obama said:

In that time, America's worked with allies to provide humanitarian support, to help  the moderate opposition, and to shape a political settlement, but I have resisted calls for military action because we cannot resolve someone else's civil war through force, particularly after a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mr. Obama, when it comes to the Syrian rebels, they are anything but moderate. And when it comes to fighting someone else's civil war, you did so in Libya.

Speaking on chemical weapons, Mr. Obama said:

Because these weapons can kill on a mass scale, with no distinction between soldier and infant, the civilized world has spent a century working to ban them.

My comment to that is, killing babies with gas is unacceptable, however abortion, even with the baby out of the womb, is just fine with you.

Twice he called America a democracy, even describing us as "the world's oldest constitutional democracy." To be exact Mr. Constitutional Professor, we are a constitutional republic.

Mr. Obama later said:

I believe that America acts more effectively abroad when we stand together .

You didn’t believe that when Bush was President and we were at war.

He then patronizes Americans with this statement:

It's no wonder then that you're asking hard questions.

Mr. Obama, these are not hard questions. They are logical and legitimate. Okay, for you that makes them hard. Carry on!

Then speaking on pinpricks, Mr. Obama said:

Let me make something clear: The United States military doesn't do pinpricks. Even a limited strike will send a message to Assad that no other nation can deliver.

Mr. Obama, I can think of at least 8 NATO allies, plus France, who are capable of doing limited and targeted strikes.

Next was this doozy of a statement:

We learned from Iraq that doing so makes us responsible for all that comes next.

Not to mention Egypt and Libya, which you didn’t mention.

Next comes his plea for bipartisanship:

To my friends on the left, I ask you to reconcile your belief in freedom and dignity for all people with those images of children writhing in pain and going still on a cold hospital floor, for sometimes resolutions and statements of condemnation are simply not enough.

I don’t think they really care about that. Remember they support full and unfettered abortion.

And just one last appeal for the children:

America is not the world's policeman. Terrible things happen across the globe, and it is beyond our means to right every wrong, but when with modest effort and risk we can stop children from being gassed to death and thereby make our own children safer over the long run, I believe we should act.

The most dangerous place in America for our children is in its mother’s womb. Syria is the least of their problems.

So while I did not watch Mr. Obama's speech (I'm 0 for how many ever speeches he's given), I did read it and was nonplussed and underwhelmed by his, or his speechwriters', words.

Not An Emperor

So Barack Obama was lamenting the fact that he is the President of the United States, not the Emperor of the United States.

Yes, Mr. Obama, that indeed is the fact and it was designed to stop tyrants such as you.

Conservatives Don’t Have a Messaging Problem; They Have a Governing Problem

Rubio addresses the American Conservative Union's annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in WashingtonOne day the Republican Party may actually get it. With great frustration, I read a Christian Post article reporting on National Review’s Summit, “The Future of Conservatism,” where the meme about messaging is resonating.

There is no doubt that the Republican Party is anemic in the ability to get their message out. That is true on all fronts. But that is not why the GOP loses elections.

The GOP loses elections because they govern like liberals.

The first TARP bill was passed in the Democratic-controlled Congress with 34 of 48 Senate Republicans and 108 of 199 House Republicans voting yes. That is 71% of Senate Republicans and 54% of House Republicans. When more than half of the so-called conservative party votes like liberals, then you can't really make the case that conservatives have a messaging problem.

Conservatives rightly complain about the nation’s debt, and Republicans in Congress decry the President’s out of control spending, but they don’t add in this inconvenient truth. They‘ve raised the debt ceiling every time they’ve reached the “fiscal cliff.” And spare me the idiotic statement that the debt limit wasn’t raised when you suspend it. It still allows for the actual debt to increase.

My buddy Steve Deace, nationally-syndicated radio host, puts it best. He has stated, "If Republicans actually lived up to their platform the American people might trust us more, and if we offered people solutions rather than philosophical mission statements the American people would almost always choose us over them."

Barack Obama was reelected because he turned out his base. Mitt Romney was defeated because he at best took his base for granted or worse, ignored it.

When you ignore an already disgruntled base by nominating a Governor who governed as a liberal, the mantra of “Stop the Obama Express” does not equate to large voter turnout.

Republicans do not govern like conservatives because they are afraid of being blamed for government shut downs, starving little children, and turning off old people’s heat. And when Republicans do give into the Democrats and govern like liberals, they get…wait for it…blamed anyway.

As I write this Barack Obama is delivering his partisan speech in what is traditionally known as the State of the Union Address.

Republicans have a key opportunity to go after Obama and the Democrats' destructive policies with relentless aggression. I am talking no-holds barred, winner-take-all battle royale of comparing solid conservative solutions to disastrous Democrat-liberal socialism. The contrast could not be more clear or stark.

If Republicans will simply govern like conservatives, then they will not only win back the White House and control of both houses, but they might actually rescue our nation.

Now that's a message that attracts voters.

A Pastor’s Perspective – Part 6: “I Will Not Sell Out the Gospel”

In our last and longest segment, I ask Bro Dennis about voting against Obama as an enemy of the state. While he recognizes this as a hard issue for everyone, and he states that our people are free to vote as they want, his priority is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

A Pastor’s Perspective – Part 5: “I Tell Them to Grow Up!”

In this short segment, Bro Dennis tackles the statement of voting third party or not voting for president is a vote for Barack Obama.

If you agree with this statement, you will not like his answer.

Bro Dennis Part 5

The last part of the interview, I ask Bro Dennis if a case can be made to vote against Barack Obama as an enemy of the state.

We'll post that tomorrow.

A Pastor’s Perspective – Part 4: Hogs Don’t Butcher Themselves

In this segment I ask Bro Dennis if voting for Mitt Romney as a way to save our economy, to stop the bleeding, is allowed biblically?

Bro Dennis comes up with another classic line while talking about Congress and it's unwillingness to make real cuts in the budget.

He then explains from where moral clarity and courage comes, which is so missing in Washington D.C. and is the only hope for our nation.

Bro Dennis Part 4

Next segment we tackle the charge that not voting for Mitt Romney is a vote for Barack Obama.

Yes Sarah, There Will Be Death Panels

So it seems that Sarah Palin was right after all. There will be death panels under ObamaCare when it comes to neurosurgery for stroke and aneurysm for people 70 years and older.

Mind you, under ObamaCare, these people are not considered people, they are described as "units."

I know that there have been many superfluous comparisons of the Obama Administration to Adolf Hitler, but the Third Reich did indeed call some people "units."

This audio below is from my good buddy Mark Levin's show from a caller last November. Doug Ross, the great blogger at Director Blue has the transcript of the call and below is the audio. Please pass this far and wide!

2016: Obama’s America

I just finished watching the Dinesh D'Souza movie "2016: Obama's America" and it is not only a must see movie, but also one of the best I've seen in a long while. I can clearly understand why the Left is castigating D'Souza for his book and subsequent movie.

I'm going to share some observations of the movie without spoiling it for you and to also whet your appetite for it enough to spend the money.

First, I could never understand what would possess Barack Obama to return the bust of Winston Churchill to Great Britain. After watching the movie it makes perfect sense.

Second, I no longer wonder if Frank Marshall Davis is Obama's actual father. I am convinced beyond all doubt that Barack Obama Sr. is Obama's father. How? By meeting his half-brother George Obama. You will be too when you meet him in the movie. Uncanny!

Third, Barack Obama's socialism and anti-Americanism are symptoms of who he is, not what defines him. The movie completely unveils Barack Hussein Obama.

Fourth, while it would be nice to see Obama's college records, you don't need them to know what kind of education he got. You already know about his radical friends Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers. You'll meet more and as disturbing friends in the movie.

Lastly, the underlying issue the movie unveils, that which defines Barack Hussein Obama, is the most compelling reason why he cannot have another term in office. What he has done to our country is who he is. The movie leaves no room for doubt.

Would to God we could actually have someone to vote FOR instead of just a reason to vote AGAINST.

Notwithstanding, go to this movie tomorrow or as soon as possible. Be sure you check this website for times and locations in your area. You can watch the official move trailer below:
