Arguably, most Americans haven’t the foggiest of whom Theresa May is. But as fast as one can spell W-I-K-I-P-E-D-I-A, it’s a reasonable expectation that the new British Prime Minister would make the average American either whoop with joy over her anti-terrorism stance or would make Libertarians want to rip their own eyeball out of their sockets.

As the air forces and navies of Greece and Egypt scour the thousands of square miles of the Mediterranean Sea where bits and pieces of EgyptAir Flight 804 have reportedly been seen, the governments of France and Egypt have already stated that Islamic jihadi terrorists are “the likely” perpetrators of the downed Paris to Cairo Airbus A320.
In the meantime on this side of the pond, the most prominent figure in American politics has weighed in on the latest man-caused disaster that’s claimed 66 lives.
In an impromptu question and answer session with the White House press corpse held at the historic South Wing briefing room, Barack Obama agreed that the aircraft more than likely was brought down by an act of violence, but certainly not an act of terror.
As the American Chief Executive stated, “Just like administration building at Fort Hood and the Government Center Facility in San Bernadino, Flight 804 is by definition, a workplace. Constantly on the move, but still a place of work.”
Furthermore, Obama touted his own street cred by stating, “As someone who spent many years as a community organizer, if there’s anyone who can immediately recognize a workplace is, it’s me. And I’m a Constitutional Law professor, so you know I’m telling the truth.”
When queried on the violent 360 degree turn the aircraft made in mid-air, Obama speculated, “From what I hear, and I hear a whole buncha things, there was a French co-pilot who was trying to impress the Egyptian flight attendants of undetermined gender. Maybe he was just burning doughnuts like I did growing up in Keny… I mean… Hawaii. But he did it at 37,000 feet instead of the McGwando’s parking lot in the south-side of Nairo… I mean… Honolulu.”
But unlike the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Obama was certainly brimming with confidence that the truth behind the destruction of Flight 804 would soon be solved. “Once the African-American box is found, all lingering questions will be answered once and for all without even a smidgen of doubt.”
In a written statement later issued to the press it was revealed that by way of Executive Action, Obama had regulated that with it common knowledge that all African-American boxes are actually orange, said information containers would henceforth be known as “Donald Boxes.”
Furthermore, the press release went on to state that to ensure the United States contributes its fair share, Obama has ordered the flagship of the Sixth Fleet, the USS Alger Hiss (YG-1369) to assist in the nautical search for clues. In keeping with the Obama Doctrine, The Fighting Hissy was placed under the direct command and control of the French Navy.
The Hiss will be joining the FS Je Vais Rendre and the FS Puis Collaborer when they hoist anchor from their main naval base at Mers-el-Kébir. Tentatively titled Operation Reddition Singe, the task force is still awaiting approval from the United Nations General Assembly. Unfortunately for the men, women, and others of the mini-armada, the UN isn’t scheduled to convene until sometime in mid-June.

Apologize for what… winning a war we didn’t start? But then again, that would be right there in Obama’s wheelhouse.
It’s the question that just won’t go away – will Barack Obama formally apologize to Japan for the United States deploying two atomic weapons during WWII? As reported by the Daily Times of Lahore, Pakistan on Apr. 23, 2016, Tokyo and Washington, DC are still buzzing with word that Obama very well could be the first incumbent US president to visit Hiroshima. And with that visit, the former community organizer would in effect apologize for the manner in which the United States ended a war that conceivably would have drug on for years and seen many millions more dead or wounded had any other course of action been taken.

There are two maxims the US Marine Corps has understood for well over two centuries; “Only imbeciles and fools fight fair, and won’t do so for long” and “There is only one rule in war: When you win, you get to make up the rules.” Interestingly enough, the Spanish-American philosopher Jorge Santayana once famously opined, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Continue reading New ISIS English language video; Eiffel Tower destroyed, London and Rome next→
Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has made quite the election prediction when he claimed that if he can garner at least 25 percent of the African-American vote, he’ll easily beat whoever the Democrats throw at him in the general election. To up the ante, Trump boldly stated at a Myrtle Beach rally, “I will do more for the African American people in one year than Barack Obama has done in his seven years – soon to be eight years – and then by the way, he’s out and thank goodness, ok?” Continue reading Trump’s possible move for winning the black vote→
“We are leaving in 2014. Period.” -Joe Biden, 2012.
For a third time, the campaign promise made by Team Obama/Biden during the 2012 presidential race has been matter-of-factly relegated to the dustbin of politics as usual. While Joe Biden’s promise to the American people that all US troops would be out of Afghanistan, in Biden’s words, “We are leaving in 2014. Period,” the truth of the matter is that particular Democratic Party talking point has proven itself to be a blatant lie.
Is that your hand in my back pocket, or did you just issue another executive order?
Three years after the very public pawing and fawning between Chris Christie and Barack Obama, it looks as if the bromance is on the rocks. With the destruction of Hurricane Sandy as the sensuous backdrop, the ectomorphic Chief Executive and the gargantuan Governor were caught by the paparazzi conducting themselves like a couple of horny teens whilst strolling together on the Jersey Shore.
Much like Bill Clinton’s penchant for chubby chasing interns, Obama kept the presidential precedence wheezing along when he went full-on horn-dog for the hefty Christie. But that was then, this is now.
With Obama yet again usurping the US Constitution via executive action regarding the Second Amendment, Christie slammed his ex-BFF by referring to him as “a petulant child”.
This is the same Chris Christie whose slobbering love affair with Obama reached its apex when former Speaker of the House John Boehner experienced his “brief moment of fiscal sanity” as penned by the The Investor’s Business Daily back in 2013. In one of his very few bright moments as Speaker, Weepy John made sure the pork-filled $60.4 billion Hurricane Sandy relief bill was killed in the House of Representatives.
In what the IBD referred to as Boehner’s “brief moment of fiscal sanity” in a Washington, DC scheme that ensured of the $60.4 billion Sandy relief bill, little actually goes to the people in the effected areas of New Jersey and Staten Island, NY.
As cited by IBD, “the estimate of insured losses from Sandy comes in around $20 billion, only one-third the request.” Examples of the billions slated to go other than those effected in New Jersey and Staten Island:
$28 billion for future “disaster-mitigation” projects.
$100 million for the repair of all 265 Head Start centers around the country.
$8 million (+) to buy cars and equipment for the Homeland Security and Justice departments.
$150 million for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to dole out to fisheries in Alaska.
$2 million for the Smithsonian Institution to repair museum roofs in Washington, D.C.
$207 million for the VA Manhattan Medical Center.
$41 million to fix up eight military bases along the storm’s path, including Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
$4 million for repairs at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
$3.3 million for the Plum Island Animal Disease Center of New York.
$1.1 million to repair national cemeteries.
But that didn’t stop Christie from slamming Republicans. Possibly still angered that his buddy Barack was slapped down by the House GOP, Christie flatly stated regarding the closer scrutiny of the Sandy Relief Bill, “There’s only one group to blame, the House [Republican] Majority and John Boehner.”
Again… that was then, this is now. To paraphrase the old adage, “Hell hath no fury like a RINO seeking the presidency.”
As Merriam-Webster and every high school kid whose ever boned up for the SAT verbal knows, Sycophant is defined as a person who praises powerful people in order to get their approval or as a person best described as a servile self-seeking flatterer.
Possibly the words Works for Hillary should be added to this particular noun normally reserved for toadies, parasites and suck-ups.
Possibly to be placed in the “What Was Your First Hint?” file, the perpetually vacationing Barack Obama admitted that Marines make him “feel small”.
As reported by Newsmax.com, “The only problem I’ve got when I’m here is having to work out with Marines in the gym,” Obama said during his annual Christmas Day visit with U.S. troops at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe Bay. “Because I generally feel like your commander in chief is in pretty good shape, and then I get next to some guy, you know, curling 100 pounds and it makes me feel small.”
And Obama has good reason to feel insecure. While attending meetings in Poland during the summer of 2014, candid video was leaked to the press of Obama hitting the gym. Well, maybe not hitting the gym… swishing would be more apt.
Doing his best Pee-Wee Herman imitation, America’s Commander-in-Chief was seen grimacing while working out with girl’s 10-pound weights. Possibly not into his workout, Obama was also seen yawning in-between sets.
As everyone already knows, the frontrunner for the Jackass Party has publicly accused Donald Trump of being featured by ISIS recruiters in their online social media. As Hillary Clinton plainly stated at a recent campaign event, ISIS is “going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”
Despite network censors partially catching actress and Fox News commentator Stacey Dash’s brief moment of profanity, the on-air personality has been suspended for two weeks for the verbal slip. As reported by the new media portal TownHall.com on Dec. 7, 2015 by Christine Roussel, Dash may have gotten a wee bit taken away by her emotions when she inadvertently dropped a colloquialism for solid human waste.

In what his political foes may describe as a prime example of double-talk, Barack Obama has given an apocalyptic vision of the things to come due to his belief that humanity has played a key role in climate change.
As reported by the CSNNews.com portal on Nov. 30, 2015, Obama warned the world of “submerged countries” while addressing the 2015 Paris Climate Conference. As cited, Obama stated, “unless the nations of the world acted now to combat climate change, countries would be submerged, cities would be abandoned, fields would no longer grown, and there would be new conflicts and floods of refugees.” Continue reading Obama contradicts himself on global warming, China’s faux-islands→
While the ballyhoo and huzzahs at both the 2008 and 2012 Democratic National Conventions greeted Barack Obama’s promises to end America’s combat involvement in both Iraq and Afghanistan, not only has neither been honored, but now the same man who won the Nobel Peace Prize has ordered American combat troops into another Middle Eastern nation. As reported by Gregory Korte of USA TODAY on Oct. 31, 2015, and also by Nancy A. Youssef of The Daily Beast on Oct. 30, 2015, the campaign promises of Barack Obama are quite different from the orders given by Commander-in-Chief Obama.
During the coarse of his years in the White House, the community organizer from Waikiki has just shattered his oft-given pledge not to have the proverbial boots on the ground in Syria. While the Western media heaped über-homage on Obama during the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq in 2009, the same military exit was reversed by 2014, but not quite as well covered by the same media.
On the heels of it being publicly announced that “less than 50” American troops designated as Special Operations Forces will be deployed onto Syrian soil to “train and advise.” As The Daily Beast’s Youssef cited, the phrase “train and advise” is “the very same language the Pentagon used when it first sent a few hundred troops to Iraq a year ago. There are now 3,000 troops there…”
As previously covered by Examiner.com on July 2, 2014, multiple sources were cited and linked to detailing upwards of 600 hundred Marines and Army Special Forces were sent to Iraq to beef-up security for the massive US embassy in Baghdad’s famed Green Zone. Curiously, it was also quietly revealed that of the 600 additional troops sent to augment the embassy’s Marine Security Guard Detachment, 200 of the Leathernecks were assigned specifically to provide perimeter security to the nearby Baghdad International Airport.
As USA TODAY’s Korte dug deep into the news archives, he uncovered a full 16 different occasions when Obama promised in public that no ground combat troops would ever be introduced into the middle of the Syrian civil war/terrorist invasion:
So again, I repeat, we’re not considering any open-ended commitment. We’re not considering any boots-on-the-ground approach.” – Remarks before meeting with Baltic State leaders, Aug. 30, 2013
“We would not put boots on the ground. Instead, our action would be designed to be limited in duration and scope.” – Remarks in the Rose Garden, Aug. 31, 2013
“So the key point that I want to emphasize to the American people: The military plan that has been developed by our Joint Chiefs — and that I believe is appropriate — is proportional. It is limited. It does not involve boots on the ground. This is not Iraq, and this is not Afghanistan.” – Statement before meeting with congressional leaders, Sept. 3, 2013
“I think America recognizes that, as difficult as it is to take any military action — even one as limited as we’re talking about, even one without boots on the ground — that’s a sober decision.” – News conference in Stockholm, Sweden, Sept. 4, 2013
“The question for the American people is, is that responsibility that we’ll be willing to bear? And I believe that when you have a limited, proportional strike like this — not Iraq, not putting boots on the ground; not some long, drawn-out affair; not without any risks, but with manageable risks — that we should be willing to bear that responsibility.” – News conference in St. Petersburg, Russia, Sept. 6, 2013
“What we’re not talking about is an open-ended intervention. This would not be another Iraq or Afghanistan. There would be no American boots on the ground.” – Weekly radio address, Sept. 7, 2013
“Tomorrow I’ll speak to the American people. I’ll explain this is not Iraq; this is not Afghanistan; this is not even Libya. We’re not talking about — not boots on the ground. We’re not talking about sustained airstrikes.” – Interview with the PBS Newshour, Sept. 9, 2013
“What I’m going to try to propose is that we have a very specific objective, a very narrow military option, and one that will not lead into some large-scale invasion of Syria or involvement or boots on the ground; nothing like that.” – Interview with CBS Evening News, Sept. 9, 2013
“Many of you have asked, won’t this put us on a slippery slope to another war? One man wrote to me that we are ‘still recovering from our involvement in Iraq.’ A veteran put it more bluntly: ‘This nation is sick and tired of war.’ My answer is simple: I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria.” – Address to the Nation, Sept. 10, 2013
“We are doing everything we can to see how we can do that and how we can resource it. But I’ve looked at a whole lot of game plans, a whole lot of war plans, a whole bunch of scenarios, and nobody has been able to persuade me that us taking large-scale military action even absent boots on the ground, would actually solve the problem.” – Interview on Bloomberg View, Feb, 27, 2014
“With respect to the situation on the ground in Syria, we will not be placing U.S. ground troops to try to control the areas that are part of the conflict inside of Syria.” – News conference in Newport, Wales, Sept. 5, 2014
The notion that the United States should be putting boots on the ground, I think would be a profound mistake. And I want to be very clear and very explicit about that.” – Interview with Meet the Press, Sept. 7, 2014
“I want the American people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil.” – Address to the Nation on Syria, Sept. 10, 2014
“Right now we’re moving forward in conjunction with outstanding allies like Australia in training Iraqi security forces to do their job on the ground.” – News conference in Brisbane, Australia, Nov. 16, 2014
“The resolution we’ve submitted today does not call for the deployment of U.S. ground combat forces to Iraq or Syria. It is not the authorization of another ground war, like Afghanistan or Iraq. … As I’ve said before, I’m convinced that the United States should not get dragged back into another prolonged ground war in the Middle East.” – Remarks at the White House, Feb. 11, 2015
“It is not enough for us to simply send in American troops to temporarily set back organizations like ISIL, but to then, as soon as we leave, see that void filled once again with extremists.” – Remarks at the Pentagon, July 6, 2015
While breaking news travels literally at the speed of light, the hours-old announcement by Barack Obama that American combat troops are not only going to remain in Afghanistan, but staying in-country even after he leaves the White House, is arguably considered by many as old news. Despite the Commander-in-Chief’s announcement widely reported by the legacy media, what’s not being mentioned is that Team Obama promised on live television that American troops would be out of the Central Asian nation as of 2014.

Love, hate or indifferent to George W. Bush, many agree that during his administration there were clear lines of delineation of who basically was on our side and who was against us in the Middle East. Love, hate or indifferent to Barack H. Obama, many agree that knowing who in the Middle East has our back, and who wants to stab us in the back aren’t quite as clear cut.
When promising Iraq was sovereign, stable, and self-reliant, Obama ordered the last of the American combat troops out in 2011. But the situation is so convoluted now, even Western media outlets can’t seem to agree who is for us or against us. Case in point: Reporter Tom Batchelor of Great Britain’s the Daily Express newspaper noted on Oct. 14, 2015, that the ISIS terrorist organization is calling on a global jihad specifically aimed at Russian and American targets across the globe.
However, just the day prior, reporter Mary Chastain of the new media Breitbart.com news organization reports that ISIS has indeed called for an Islamic jihad against the two Cold War adversaries. Yet Chastain also noted that the al-Nusra Front terrorists and a number of Saudi Arabian clerics are also saddling-up with ISIS in calling for violence against the United States and Russia.
As cited by Batchelor, ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani left little to the imagination when he said, “‘Islamic youth everywhere, ignite jihad against the Russians and the Americans in their crusaders’ war against Muslims.” With the al-Nusra Front pledging their military and doctrinal allegiance to the Usama Bin Laden founded al-Qaeda terrorists, Breitbart.com’s Chastain notes their leader Abu Mohammad al-Jolani fell in line with ISIS. As quoted, “If the Russian army kills the people of Syria, then kill their people. And if they kill our soldiers, then kill their soldiers. An eye for an eye.”
Far from done, al-Jolani as then vowed to pay “three million euros ($3.4 million) for anyone who can kill Bashar al-Assad and end his story.” He also promised to compensate anyone who killed a member of the Assad family. Ostensibly, the bounty on any member of the Assad family also includes any of his three young children.
Even further confusing the situation, Chastain also cites that a number of Sunni clerics in Saudi Arabia are calling for a Sunni jihad against the Russians. With al-Qaeda overwhelmingly Sunni, and ISIS equally Shiite, both groups seek the destruction of Russia, Israel and the United States.
But the regional patrons of ISIS and al-Qaeda are funded, supported, and armed by the same Russians and Americans that ISIS and al-Qaeda despise. Many have speculated that a sizable amount of weaponry from the Saudi inventory has made its way to their brother Sunnis in al-Qaeda. There has also been questions if Iran is sincere in their open declaration to fight against their fellow Shiites in ISIS.
Citing numerous sources, as previously covered by Examiner.com, Obama sent during early 2014 more Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided (TOW) anti-tank missiles in one shipment to Saudi Arabia than the entire inventory of the US Marine Corps. Also cited in the same report was that the Obama Administration shipped TOWs to one of the supposedly moderate Syrian militias who in fact are allied with the al-Nusra Front, who have often been characterized as the al-Qaeda branch in Syria.
The Washington Post reported earlier this year that between October 2010 and October 2014 alone, the United States sold the Sunni Saudi Arabians more than $90 billion worth of some of the most sophisticated weapons on the planet. For their part, the Russians have been quite open regarding giving billions of dollars worth of comparably sophisticated weapons to their Shiite-dominated Iranian allies.
