As reported by the CyberCast News Service (CNSNews.com) on Nov. 27, 2014, Barack Obama managed to insert references to himself into a speech delivered in Chicago a dizzying 91 times. For word catchers everywhere, the totality of Obama utilizing the first person singular, to include the pronouns “I” and “me” and the adjective “my” a hefty 91 times, even with any and all quotes from both a Windy City bar owner as well as from a letter from a citizen from Georgia disregarded from the count.
As the rumor mill inside the DC Beltway shifts into high gear regarding what could be another historic first for Barack Obama’s presidency: A White House divorce. As reported by Cross Map news (via Google News) on Nov. 26, 2014, as well as a separate article by the same news source on Nov. 21, 2014, wagging tongues from Washington to Chicago to Hollywood have become so active, many presidential watchers are openly questioning if a first ever presidential divorce is in the making.
Despite more than a few businesses in Ferguson, Missouri being looted then burned to the ground after a grand jury voted not to indict Officer Darren Wilson on criminal charges stemming from his shooting of Michael Brown, few if any major news organizations are reporting that the infant whose life may have been saved before the Brown shooting, was likely a black child. As reported by the Bloomberg Politics news portal on Nov. 25, 2014, as well as KMOV.com of Saint Louis, Mo. on Nov. 24, 2014, prior to Officer Wilson responding to the radio call regarding Brown’s strong arm robbery of a local convenience store, Wilson was involved with a sickly infant residing in an overwhelmingly African-American Section 8 housing complex.
Captain Derek Herrera, USMC (Retired) vowed he would leave his beloved Corps the same way he came in, on his own two legs. But as reported by KTXL of Sacramento, Calif. on Nov. 23, 2014, and also by the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 22, 2014, the disabled Leatherneck departed the service of his country not only donning ground-breaking medical equipment, but also with a rather prestigious medal presented for his personal valor on the field of battle pinned to his chest.
But I digress, yet again. Obama’s de facto granting of amnesty to somewhere between 4.5 – 6 million immigrants has been a spit in the face to ever legal, law-abiding naturalized citizen this nation has ever made one of our own. The very same legal, law-abiding naturalized citizen that followed that very basic American trait of just following the rules. Most waited patiently for years. Many spent a small fortune just to proudly and legally say “I’m an AMERICAN citizen.” Some went as far as fighting and bleeding for this country before it became their country.
As far as our nation’s immigration system being “broken,” the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly known as the Immigration and Naturalization Service) has for decades maintained the wherewithal to correctly process though the system millions of newly minted American citizens each and every year. But that number is now getting getting smaller and smaller each and every year. Why? Simple … what few Border Patrol Agents are actually stationed on the Mexican line are busy changing diapers and keeping those rambunctious members of the MS-13 Teen Auxiliary occupado. Should I even bring up the Three Stooges farce the immigration court system has become? No … you get the picture.
While an already bureaucratically-bloated immigration system does manage to somehow plod along despite of 11 – 20 million illegals overloading the system, it’s not a perfect system. Someone with a backbone needs to blow into town with a fat-cutting chainsaw. As The Fiscal Times noted recently, “There are an estimated 4.4 million people on waiting lists to qualify for family-based or employment visas to enter the U.S., with waiting times ranging on average from five years to 20 years. Experts say there are so many different types of visas and regulations — and so many peculiarities to the law and bureaucratic snafus — that discussing the length of lines is almost meaningless.”
But there are those who willingly wait in line. Correctly, responsibly, legally. And every so often there are cases of legal aliens who have such a love for the United States, they’re willing to put their lives on the line just to be called “American.” Men such as Sergeant Tikonblah Dargbeh, USMC and Lance Corporal Mario Pacheco-Perez, USMC.
Born Mexican citizens, Mario and his twin brother Josue came to this country as permanent legal residents in 2006. When the brothers learned that volunteering for military service could speed up their naturalization process, both chose the branch of service known for an almost fanatical love of the United States – the US Marine Corps.
Another that not only talked the talk, but walked the walk, was Liberian-born Tikonblah Dargbeh, “whose father instilled in him the belief that America represented greater opportunity to excel.” When made a citizen in 2009, the Marine Sergeant’s mother, Marta said of her son, “As a little kid, he had always loved the military, so this is a dream come true for him to be able to get into the Marines and here he is a U.S. citizen. It’s a really big occasion for us. We are very proud of him.”
Among the Teufelhunden’s awards are campaign ribbons denoting his two combat tours as well as the Combat Action Ribbon, the Presidential Unit Citation, and the Purple Heart for wounds received when a suicide bomber rammed his bomb-laden car into Sgt. Dargbeh’s vehicle. Without coming off as a braggart, the Leatherneck plainly said at his citizenship ceremony, “I understand what it means to give selfless service.”
Sadly for this nation, new Americas like Tikonblah Dargbeh and the Brothers Pacheco-Perez are quickly becoming the exception rather than the rule. Those that followed the law should file a personal lawsuit against Obama and also against the Executive Branch. As they say on the streets, they were done dirty.
An unnamed Arab nation’s ambassador to the United Arab Emirates has successfully annulled his marriage contract to an unidentified woman on the grounds that her parents deceived him into believing she was a much more attractive woman, as reported by The Daily Mail (of London).
Another American has been decapitated by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The Obama Administration continues to respond with four minutes worth of flight deck activity aboard our multi-gazillion dollar Carrier Task Forces in the Persian Gulf. The Obama minimum wage war lethargically slouches forward almost as if disinterested. Typical of amateurs, Obama is more often than not reactive to ISIS rather than being proactive in actually sending them all to hell, à la Joe Biden.
The world of academia and lawmaking have certainly come up with some rather unique ways for women to with the crime of rape, ranging from vomiting on the attacker to telling the rapist it’s that particular time of the month. However, a small college in upstate New Jersey is advising women in the Freshman class to practice “articulating” particular faces, as reported by the collegiate-oriented Campus Reform news portal on Nov. 17, 2014.
In what could be a ground breaking court ruling that may pave the way for easing laws against pedophilia, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is taking heat for arguing, and winning, in a civil court that a minor could legally consent to to sexual intercourse with an adult. As reported by the Associated Press news service via Fox News, on Nov. 14, 2014, and also by Southern California Public Radio via affiliate station 89.3 KPCC on Nov. 13, 2014, a 28-year-old LAUSD teacher was found guilty of engaging in sexual relations with a minor. But in civil court, the minor’s sexual history was introduced as evidence of her ability to legally give consent to her own molestation.
A noticeably gaunt Barack Obama arrived in Beijing, and within hours of arrival, Chinese social media was hammering the American Chief Executive for what they deemed his insulting conduct to both his hosts and the Chinese people overall. As reported by USA Today on Nov. 10, 2014, Obama’s six year battle with his addiction to nicotine as well as Obama’s speaking ill of Chinese limousines prompted harsh words from both everyday Chinese as well as Beijing’s hoity-toity on the Chinese version of Twitter.
Play that funky music, white girl …
Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, Dr. Walter Williams calls it the black dialect, some refer to it street talk, others simply call it the ghetto accent, call it whatever you want – one thing’s for sure, blacks don’t exactly appreciate it when someone without a black dialect magically discovers one. Kind of like when white Southerners see non-Southern politicians show up every presidential election and amazingly has “y’all” added to their lexicon.
London’s famed Scotland Yard detectives have just broken up a rather bloody plot to assassinate the reigning monarch of the British throne this week-end at the official remembrance of the British Empire’s entry into World War One. As reported by Fairfax NZ News (New Zealand) on Nov. 8, 2014 and also by the NewsMax.com news portal on Nov. 7, 2014, at least four Islamic Jihadists have been arrested in various raids throughout London busting up an assassination plot to stab and hack to death Queen Elizabeth II.
In a statement released by Scotland Yard, the Cockney crime busters state they’ve arrested four men — aged 19, 22, 25, and 27 — during the course of raids on eight different properties this past Thursday and Friday in West London and Buckinghamshire as part of an ongoing investigation into “Islamist related terrorism.” The official statement also went on to say with standard British reserve, “The men have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the Commission, Preparation or Instigation of acts of Terrorism.”
The 88-year-old Queen is scheduled to attend centennial memorial ceremonies hosted by the British equivalent of the American VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars), the Royal British Legion, as they hold what is officially known as the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall this weekend to honor all the soldiers of the Empire who fell during the First World War. London’s Metropolitan Police have also released that the now arrested suspects at least initially planned to attack the Queen with edged weapons, even though they did have access to firearms.
Both Queen Elizabeth and UK Prime Minister David Cameron had been informed of the threat. British security tout they have erected “a ring of steel … thrown around Whitehall.” Despite the threat, the Queen has not cancelled her participation in the commemorations.
The man who promised to end United States involvement in what he termed “Bush’s War” has just doubled on the total amount of American combat troops into war torn Iraq. As reported by the Associated Press news service via KABC-TV in Los Angeles, California on Nov. 7, 2014, Barack Obama has authorized an additional 1,500 troops to the 1,600 already in-country.
Maybe it was a case of a Croc to the crotch or possibly even a construction boot to the boys. Whatever it was, local police have ruled out a pump to the rump. North-central North Carolina‘s Stokes County American Legion hall-turned-polling-station was the scene of the crime on election day as reported by The Washington Times on Nov. 5, 2014 and also byWGHB of High Point, NC on Nov. 6, 2014, as a local Democratic Party boss kicked a GOP volunteer directly in the groin after a round of name calling between the two.
In spite of the Democratic Party of North Carolina doing their level best to bring out the vote in yesterday’s mid-term General Election, to include examples of intimidating and threatening letters sent to party faithful, the Democrats were trounced across the state. As reported by The Tribune Papers news portal of western North Carolina on Nov. 4, 2014, a number of registered Democrats from across the state are stepping forward asking why their own Party is intimidating and threatening them.
No, I don’t believe in Black Helicopters. Neither do I think the NSA is listening to every phone call I make, even to Peking Palace when I get a hankerin’ for some moo goo gaipan. I’m also finding it tough to buy off on secret codes printed on the back of stop signs giving UN troops directions to FEMA camps. But I do believe if America were to ever become a true totalitarian state à la Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union, or Fidel’s Cuba, it’s won’t be a case of conservatives getting their Eichmann on. Oh, no … I’m of the opinion that it’ll be the loving, tolerant and accepting liberals who’ll be going all Vic Vega on all the right-leaning Marvin Nashs of the world.
In what very well could be a case of limousine liberalism run amok, a pro-feminism t-shirt that all of Britain’s trendiest left-of-center fashionistas are sporting turns out it would take the workers who manufacture the very same haute couture would have to work a week and a half to earn enough needed to buy just one of the fruits of their labor. As reported by America’s Breitbart.com news portal and also Great Britain’s BBC, both on Nov.2, 2014, the same must have shirt that members of Britain’s Labour Party have been hammering the Tory Prime Minister for refusing to wear what turns out to be manufactured in a Third World sweatshop on the African island nation of Mauritius, roughly 500 miles east of Madagascar.
Looks as if Democratic supporters aren’t the only things walking out on Barack Obama. At recent campaign appearances, the Chief Executive is seeing people beating feet for the exits quicker than Dodger fans at the sixth inning. The most recent cringe-worthy mass exodus was at a somewhat less than energizing event held for the Madison, Wisconsin school board member and Democratic candidate for Governor, Mary Burke.
A rain delay for the San Diego Padres is as rare as, well … rain in California. After a five year drought that has been a financial disaster to hundreds of thousands employed in many of the Golden State’s agricultural businesses, California has thankfully received measurable precipitation as reported by the Los Angeles Times on Oct. 31, 2014.
