With President Obama, the United States was supposedly getting a worldly figure who had lived in other lands and understood the foreign brain.
Turns out Obama has little knowledge of how other cultures think, which is why he believes bowing, offering the hand of friendship, and apologizing to overseas savages works.
Such activities, as any veteran of the schoolyard playground will tell you, breed only one thing: Disrespect, contempt, and, eventually, even worse violence.
It’s becoming clear that the more the United States apologizes to Afghanistan for burning a few Korans, the more Afghans leap into the streets. So White House Dossier has helpfully compiled for Obama a list of ten alternative approaches that the president could have taken to deal with the problem.
None, we believe, will be any less effective than “I apologize.”
Read the Top Ten HERE.
(people, our president hit a new low by apologizing to the president of Afghanistan! we need a real American as president!)
By Adam Bitely — More political payola for Big Labor. The Freelancers Union has reportedly received $340 million in grants for ObamaCare implementation. Could this money be political bribery funds from the Obama administration?
On Capitol Hill, Rep. Dave Camp is looking into the matter. According to a report from Fox News, “Camp questioned whether the group was even eligible, describing the loan as a ‘reward’ for ‘political friends.’”
It seems that it has become a matter of routine inside the Obama administration to use ObamaCare grants to pay off friends and allies. Just look at the case of the taxpayer money sent to the Saul Alinsky-affiliated group in Wisconsin.
The last we heard from the Freelancers Union their founder and executive director Sara Horowitz was heaving praise on Occupy Wall Street movement:
Seven state attorneys general sued the Obama administration Thursday over its order requiring some religious employers to cover birth control in their employees’ healthcare plans.
In the suit, the states argue that the White House infringed on the religious freedoms protected by the First Amendment.
“This violation of the [First] Amendment is a threat to every American, regardless of religious faith,” Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said in a news release. “We will not stand idly by while our constitutionally guaranteed liberties are discarded by an administration that has sworn to uphold them.”
The attorneys general from Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas also joined the lawsuit.
Bill Pullman, one of the most ass-kickingest presidents in American history, has once again been called to serve the nation’s highest office for an NBC pilot about life in the White House.
The sitcom in question, 1600 Penn, follows the misadventures of a dysfunctional family that just so happens to be The First Family. Hilarity will undoubtedly ensue.
Pullman is set play President Dale Gilchrist, a former Marine who retired with distinction (no doubt for leading an American assault against invading alien forces).
The Book of Mormon’s Josh Gad, co-creator of the show, stars as Pullman’s son. Brittany Snow has been cast as First Daughter.
I want one of these. How about you?
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser explains the Muslim-created, U.S.-supported ‘Istanbul Process,’ and the threat it poses to the First Amendment…

Meet Chris May, a 16-year-old from Darlington, County Durham, who possesses what is quite possibly the world’s lamest superpower: He can hold 16 mugs at once using only one hand.
May says he stumbled upon this hidden talent one day while removing the dishes from the dishwasher.
“I started hanging mugs off my fingers, not even thinking about it,” May told The Sun, ” when my friend Max said, ‘Hey, how many mugs you got there?.’ I think I had about ten and then he said, ‘Keep going, keep going, see how many you can get.’”
Once he reached 16 he knew he had something special on his hands, so May and his buddy visited the Guinness World Records website and were shocked to learn that no record had yet been established for Most Mugs Held In A Single Hand.
He immediately shot the venerable keeper of human accomplishment an email informing them of their oversight. His claim is reportedly under review, and he will receive an answer within six weeks.
“I joke that at least I will have achieved something in my life as an undisputed world record holder,” said May.
Remember son: With great power, comes great responsibility.
After admitting to destroying evidence in order to strengthen his claim that he did not infringe on copyright in creating his iconic “Hope” poster, noted LA-based street artist Shepard Fairey today pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal misconductand faces up to six months in prison.
Fairey filed a 2009 lawsuit against the Associated Press following allegations that he used one of the news organization’s photos to produce his artwork. The 42-year-old initially claimed he had used a different photo of then-candidate Barack Obama, but soon admitted to lying.
Making matters worse, Fairey tried to cover up the lie by destroying documents and replacing them with fabricated ones. “I was ashamed that I had done these things, and I knew I should have corrected my actions,” he told a judge in Manhattan’s Federal District Court.
The AP settled with Fairey out of court last year.
Sentencing will take place on July 16th. In addition to six months behind bars, Fairey also faces a year’s worth of supervised released and a fine of $5,000.
(if only the character in the poster could face this kind of justice right now)
Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg is out with a must-read polling memo this morning, which offers some eye-opening advice to President Obama and his re-election team. After testing several of the president’s economic messages, he finds the argument that the economy is back on the right track polls miserably – and “produces disastrous results.”
“It is weaker than even the weakest Republican message and is 10 points weaker in intensity than either Republican message,” Greenberg wrote. “A third said this message made them less likely to support Barack Obama. Alarmingly, this message barely receives majority support among self-identified Democrats – and even less support among all other groups.”
The memo reads as a glaring wake-up call to the White House, which has been trumpeting improving economic figures lately. Greenberg notes that voters are reporting “no improvement” in their job situation since last June, and have experienced reduced wages and benefits and health insurance coverage. The picture Greenberg’s polling paints is an America public still deeply pessimistic about their future, and skeptical of Obama’s handling of the economy.
President Barack Obama has an emerging slogan — “greater together” — that he’s using to spur support among younger voters worried about jobs, education and debt.
The collectivist slogan is appearing in more places, including fundraisers and in the title of the “Greater Together Student Summit Tour,” which is sending Obama’s deputies to colleges to galvanize students and youth.
On Feb. 1, Obama used the slogan to spur support among young and old African-Americans, and especially African-American women.
Less than half of younger African-American men are in the workforce, and the average wealth of African-American families was slashed by the collapse of the government-caused mortgage bubble.
Previous generations of African-Americans “made it possible for someone like me to be here today. … We are greater together than we can ever be on our own,” he said in a short video posted on his campaign website.
Residents of Slovakia’s Bratislava Region are inching ever closer toward naming a newly erected pedestrian bridge linking the capital to Austria after action movie star Chuck Norris.
An Internet poll set up by the regional assembly will be used to decide on a name for the foot-and-cycle bridge that spans the Morava river. So far, the iconic tough guy is leading the pack with 74% of the vote.
Norris really has no competition to speak of: Austro-Hungarian empress Maria Theresa is currently in second place with a pitiful 8%.
Regional governor Pavol Freso will have the final word on the bridge’s official moniker once the poll closes in April, but he has already vowed to bow to the will of his constituents.
See, apologizing is not helping at all. Except to make the USA look weak.
(CNSNews.com) – In the wake of President Barack Obama sending a three-page letter to Afghan President Hamid Kharzai, apologizing for U.S. forces having mistakenly burned some Qur’ans at a U.S. air base in Afghanistan, the Taliban is calling on Muslims to kill Americans or beat them and take them as prisoners.
The call for violence against U.S. troops in Afghanistan came as Muslims in South Asia and elsewhere prepared for Friday prayers–a potentially volatile time.
Islamist groups in Pakistan, meanwhile, drummed up protests against the burning of the Qur’ans, with some leaders appealing for jihad against the United States.
Echoing incendiary calls by the Taliban for Muslims to react violently to the mishandling of the religious texts, militant leaders charged that the incident was a deliberate plot against Muslims. [...]
“Kill them, beat them, take them as prisoners and teach them such a lesson that they never summon the courage to abuse the Holy Qur’an again,” he said.
Now the liberals want affirmative action for the SEALS????? Idiots, nothing but damn idiots!!
(TIME) — In nature, most seals are black, with relatively few white ones. The Navy’s SEALs have exactly the opposite problem — they’re overwhelmingly white, with hardly any blacks. So they’re trying to do something about it.
It’s a fundamental challenge in a democracy with an all-volunteer force: recruits may be drawn from all segments of society, but elite military units — and none is more elite these days than the SEALs, following their dispatch of Osama bin Laden last May — tend to draw from small pools of talent. For the SEALs, that includes athletic young men who are smart and good in the water. For whatever reason, that has led to an overwhelmingly white SEAL force.
Gaps exist in minority representation in both officer and enlisted ranks for Special Warfare operators. Diverse officers represent only ten percent of the officer pool (for example, African Americans represent less than 2% of SEAL officers). Diverse enlisted SEALs account for less than twenty percent of the total SEAL enlisted population. Naval Special Warfare is committed to fielding a force that represents the demographics of the nation it serves. This contract initiative seeks effective strategies to introduce high potential candidates from diverse backgrounds to the opportunities available in Naval Special Warfare.
Our dictator working with his ass wipers to bypass congress! Is this not like what was going on in Germany back in the 20′s and 30′s?
President Obama met with a group of Democratic governors on Friday and discussed plans to work around Congress toward policy goals.
“There was a sense that none of us should wait, we can’t wait for things to happen in Congress,” Markell said of the meeting. “We’re going to do what we can do [now].”
Obama has positioned himself against Congress as he runs for reelection, arguing lawmakers are failing to solve the country’s problems. “Where Congress won’t act, I will,” he said in October when rolling out a series of executive orders aimed at creating jobs.
Will President Obama do something about high gas prices? No, argued Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today.
Earnest insisted that there was no “short term solution” for cheaper gas, other than the president’s payroll tax cut and refused to discuss releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserves.
“If there was a magic wand you could wave, one of the presidents would have waved it,” said Earnest arguing that high gas prices were not a new problem.
“Anyone who says that they can wave a wand or plant the magic beans to lead to a reduction in oil prices is just not telling the truth,” he added.
This, right here, is a good indication that the top officers in charge of our military need to be replaced with REAL military officers.
STERLING, Va. (AP) – A senior Pentagon official is apologizing to Washington-area Muslims for the burning of Qurans at a military base in Afghanistan.
Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of defense for Asia and Pacific security affairs, says the military is investigating and that all troops are being retrained in the handling of religious materials.
Lavoy’s remarks were Friday at a mosque in suburban Washington, D.C. They come after protests across Afghanistan over the burning of several Qurans at a U.S. military base. Military officials say 20 people have died in the protests, including two U.S. soldiers.
President Barack Obama has apologized for the burning, which authorities say was a mistake. But the protests continue.
Wonder if the liberals and the democrat party, Pelosi, Reid, and of course MSNBC will call the Pakis nothing but racist islamics? Nah…
