Today’s Intelligence Briefing has been cancelled due to lack of interest and aptitude.

Here’s everything we know so far, and everything we’re likely to know for the foreseeable future as the State Department has announced a “no further questions” policy. Not that the MSM would ask any questions likely to embarrass Big Guy anyway.

Lessons learned:

1. It’s wrong to politicize lethal attacks on our embassies if you’re running against Big Guy.

2. The best way not to politicize this is to keep calm and carry on as if nothing happened; i.e., continue to skip daily intelligence meetings and attend all previously scheduled fundraisers.

bo vegas still got it


3. This “volatile situation” in the Mid-East is not a response to U.S. policy, butt rather due to a “a video – a film – that we have judged to be reprehensive and disgusting.”

4. The best way to control such a “volatile situation” is to ask YouTube/Google to take the video down. Because nothing causes “volatility” in the Middle East like free speech.

In summary then, let me make this perfectly clear: the current outbreak of violent protests in 20+ countries around the globe are not an al Qaeda led attack against U.S. policy. Rather, they’re just another spontaneous Arab Spring moment resulting from outrage over the “reprehensible and disgusting” movie made in the USA (3 words). And it is definitively NOT the fault of our dear leader who has gone out of his way to appease, apologize and absolve all Islamic supremacists of blame for our own shortcomings.  If blame must be placed (and it must) for causing Islamists torching the world and fanning the flames it rightly belongs squarely at the feet of a) George W. Bush, b) a 15 minute film clip on YouTube and c) Mitt Romney.

Big Guy will address this situation in detail as soon as everyone has coordinated and rehearsed their answers and we’ve secured our reelection. So keep calm and carry on as we continue to focus like a laser on the country’s struggling economy by firing up our printing presses for another round of inflation.

Everything is under control here at Big White crisis central.

Behind No least as far as fundraising is concerned.

Wow! Embassies are burning across the Middle East, butt don’t worry; we will not be distracted from our primary mission:

bo fundraising braggin rights

And as I understand it there are a couple of major initiatives under way to ensure we  achieve our goal. One will be held on Tuesday at Jay-Z’s nightclub in Manhattan; and Jay-Z will be there! Along with Beyoncé, who has always been a “big fan” of BO and MO’s. BiBi was not invited as it’s really an event exclusively for mutual fan club members. (I’m sure you all remember how Lady M – big fan of Beyoncé – helped promote her hit single “Get me bodied” by using it in her own No Child’s Fat Behind platform.)

                upandawayvee vant to pump you up

Anyway, like many of you, I got a personal invitation to buy a raffle ticket in order to attend this spectacular event in person . According to the Washington Post, some people can get into the pool for as little as $5.  Butt I must have been promoted to the upper quintile of the 99% because she wants $15 or more from me. Although, it’s still a good deal, because it’s normally worth $40,000 (plus shipping and handling).


I usually don't email you -- but I have an amazing invitation I have to share.
Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!
Until midnight tonight, if you pitch in $15 or whatever you can, you'll be automatically entered to be flown out to join us.
I've had the honor of meeting President Obama and the First Lady a few times -- and believe me -- it's an opportunity you don't want to miss.
Don't worry about the airfare and hotel, it's taken care of. And you can bring a guest.
But the countdown is on -- this opportunity ends at midnight:
Can't wait to meet you!

No purchase, payment, or contribution necessary to enter or win. Contributing will not improve chances of winning. Void where prohibited. Entries must be received by September 13th, 2012. You may enter by contributing to Obama for America here, or click here to enter without contributing. One (1) winner will receive the following prize package: round-trip tickets for winner and a guest from within the fifty U.S. States, DC, or Puerto Rico to a destination to be determined by Sponsor; hotel accommodations; tickets for winner and a guest to an event of Sponsor; and the opportunity to meet with President Obama, Jay-Z and Beyonce at such event (approximate retail value of all prizes $1,600). Odds of winning depend on number of entries received. Promotion open only to U.S. citizens, or lawful permanent U.S. residents who are legal residents of 50 United States, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico and 18 or older (or age of majority under applicable law).

I hate to interrupt this commercial for an important message, butt I see that “insurgents” have just scaled the wall of our Tunisian embassy and have set it on fire, a KFC was torched in Lebanon (luckily, Lebanon does not have that Chick-fil-A phenomenon) and the German embassy in the Sudan has also been set afire.

Boy, I think there may be a lot of people around the world today waking up to ask themselves “Are we better off today with America leading from behind than we were when the cowboy was leading from the front?”

Reporting from the hive, or, “Did you hear what Romney said?”

Sometimes, when you get away, your head clears and you see things more clearly.

Step away from your computer. Do it now!

Take media bias for example. For years, due to my original programming, I’ve labored under the illusion that “reporters” wish to shine the light of truth on issues and positions that those in power might otherwise use as  propaganda for their own agenda. Butt today, motoring through the beautiful Berkshires I had one of those “ah-ha!” moments of searing insight.Light bulb

“Reporters” are the propagandists! Not just that, the “fourth estate” has been annexed and is now a member in good standing of the “power” class  they’ve always admired – the Elitist-Intellectuals. Together, as a hive they are running our government, schools, media, culture…our lives. In fact, journ-O-lists might be amongst the MOST powerful of our powerful class of betters. 

cola  banNo, I’ll tell you what size you want.

In case you somehow managed to miss the exchange between journ-O-lists discussing what approach they would use to skewer Romney for unfairly accusing BO of apologizing for allowing his people to exercise freedom of speech, it was a doozey! 

In the event, six out of the seven questions were almost exactly the same, all questioning Romney for his supposed mistake…

…The nation is in the midst of a profound national security and foreign policy crisis, and the American people deserve to know why their government was asleep at the switch–as well as what the position of the political opposition is. Yet the mainstream media is trying to quash that critical discussion and debate.

After consulting with each other they all decided on how best to pose the one burning question of the day: “Mr. Romney, what do you feel is more detrimental to US security interests, your dangerous positions on the Middle East or Paul Ryan’s dangerous positions?” They also prepared a backup question in case he stuck around after answering that one a dozen times. “How is the biased position of Fox News detrimental to the national security interests of the United States?”

bee hiveResistance is futile: be the bee

Anyway, in retrospect it’s surprising that such blatant coordination by the MSM cabal hasn’t been caught on tape before. Well, anywhere other than on Rush Limbaugh’s media montages I mean. In any other line of business this would be called collusion. It’s illegal and the Trust Department would have broken them up and thrown somebody in jail by now.

Anyway, I’m guessing Hillary “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic” Clinton didn’t approve of Mr. Romney’s statement either.

I guess she’s seen the light and has converted to the superior doctrine of group think.

Boy, it sure does look like it’s taken it’s toll though.



Butt here’s today’s take-away: ‘Tis a shame when those who have been entrusted to inform and instruct disembark and join the disinformation camp.

They’ve seized our Embassy! No wait, wasn’t that in 1979?

What’s going on around here? There’s an angry mob of red shirts marching in Chicago.


Angry mobs in Cairo and Benghazi are storming our embassies, ripping our flag down, and now they’ve killed our Libyan Ambassador and 3 of his staff?! These are acts of war and WE issued an apology? For exercising freedom of speech?

"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims - as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,"

The day after 9-11? This cannot be happening. Again.

Oh wait! Maybe it isn’t happening; at least the apology part. According to “official” sources, that statement was not approved by “Washington” - whoever that is. Maybe it was “Washington” who was also responsible for that mis-misunderstanding about BHO not having time to meet with Bibi. Since “Washington” also denied that ever happened.

It’s just that Big Guy has a time conflict with BiBi’s request (that I guess he didn’t actually make anyway).  Big Guy was previously scheduled to campaign meet with David Letterman at that time. And who do America’s Jewish voters trust more, BiBi or Dave? I’m gonna go with Dave.

Anyway, you sure can’t blame Netanyahu for wondering who the heck is in charge around here. A lot of people have been asking that lately, as our heavy WTF schedule has kept us on the road and away from the Oval office a lot lately. 

obama-iphone2012_reps_s640x525We haven’t even perfected the “phoning it in” head fake

“For Rent”

The current crises have caused Big Guy to seek the advice of someone who has far more leadership experience and better negotiation skills in Middle East affairs than he does. Butt so far we haven’t heard back from Jimmy Carter. JC’s been in almost the exact same situation before and his advice about using helicopters could be invaluable. And who knows more about the “Brotherhood” than the formerly worst President of all times, who jump started the mythical “Arab Spring” long before BO was even a community organizer.

Butt apparently Jimmy couldn’t be reached immediately. He’s off building huts in Africa, or counting votes somewhere in the Middle East. I hope he’s safe.

    carter praises egyptian votescarter praises egyptian votes2

Butt what a mess! Right in the middle of our WTF campaign season. We’re going to have to find somebody to blame this mess on PDQ.

George-W_-Bush-6Still BO’s universal scapegoat after all these years. Now that’s historic!

Oh good. I see Hillary has now condemned the action leading to Ambassador Chris Steven’s and his staff’s death. And Big Guy too! He wanted to beat Romney to the punch, who’s going to try to make this into a campaign issue. As if.

Anyway, I hear that the current Arab uprising was just another one of those social media flash mob phenomena. Apparently they’re upset about a 17 minute movie that poked fun at their prophet Mohammad. I guess it was pretty insulting. Butt then, I remember some pretty insulting movies made about Jesus too. Christians didn’t kill anyone in Hollywood as far as I recall. In fact I don’t believe that normal people respond to insults by killing people (except in Chicago). I think we really need to take a closer look at this “religion of peace” to see if it really qualifies as a religion at all. Most religions don’t condone the killing of innocents. Sounds more like hero worship to me.  What do they call that again?


Oh yes, a radical ideology. Civilization has historically had trouble coexisting with “religions” like that in the past.

Anyway, speaking of 9-11, I thought you’d like to know: Lady M and BO marked the day with a moment of silence at the Big White,

bo mo sept 11bo mo rearview

a wreath laying at the Pentagon,

9-11 It’s a Day of Remembrance

As is my tradition, we pause today to remember those who lost their lives in the Islamic terrorist attack on America and on American civilians September 11, 2001.


God Bless the U.S.A : Lee Greenwood

Celebrating today as a “Day of Service” hides the face of an evil as vile as any that has ever existed on this planet.




These hateful ideologues didn’t just attack America on 9-11, they attacked the idea of America. They hate the very values that made America the great nation it is, the champion of freedom and the light of liberty in a very dark world.

In my wildest imagination I never dreamed that we would voluntarily surrender any of those sacred freedoms and liberties. Nor would I have ever believed that 11 years hence we would stand poised as a nation to relinquish many more in the next election.

On this somber day of remembrance (no, not “day of service”) let us remember not just the victims, but why we fight. We fight to preserve the American Idea;

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

And that the government derives it’s powers from the consent of the governed – not the other way around.

So we will continue to fight the onslaught of tyrants and ideologues who seek to destroy that idea and with it the concept of American exceptionalism; be they foreign or domestic.

May God bless America, and preserve her freedom to seek that blessing.

wtc and lady liberty

iHope This Thingamajig Works! Because, iWon!


obama symbol in javascriptHope ‘N Change in Javascript

Remember our first digital, social media and tech savvy Preezy? The one who held Facebook and Google Hangout town hall meetings, a Reddit “AMA” (ask me anything) forum and is a frequent user of Twitter (remember when he “adorably” referred to it as “Twitters”  in what can only be called a “W” moment?), YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, and email blasts? And need I mention that this historical president was the first ever to appoint a federal technology officer?

Well then, this is embarrassing; even though BO has “his own iPhone” it appears that he still relies on his so-last-century “Black-Barry” for day-to-day communications and may not be so tech-savvy when it comes to the oh-so-trendy iPhone.  Yesterday in Port St. Lucy Florida he tried to call a couple of campaign volunteers on his “personal” iPhone.  Let’s just say it didn’t go very well.

"I just want to point out, this volunteering is not as easy as it looks."

Yeah, tell us about it. It’s not like community organizing.

And now the enemy camp is trying to capitalize (isn’t that just like the Republicans?) on Big Guy’s awkward technology lapse:

iHOPE iPhone

Fortunately for BO, the rest of yesterday’s campaign trip went much better, where he found love in all the old familiar places:

obama-bear-hugDoes this pizza shop owner make me look like a light weight?

Although I suppose some will take this as a bad sign too. It wasn’t that long ago that Big Guy was sweeping the electorate off their feet, not the other way around.

And I know you’ve seen Joey “on-the-road-again” Biden:

joe-biden-biker chick

schmoozing with the biker chick and the two hostages. Cuz he’s just one of the blue collar guys. I don’t know for sure what those guys are thinking, butt I don’t think Joey has anything to worry about; although it might be tempting to think about taking him out of circulation for a while, nobody’s seriously thinking about holding him hostage. Can you say “The Ransom of Red Chief?” - enough said.

Other news from around Man’s Country (I don’t want to use that racist term, “Chicago”): their teachers are going on strike today. C-word Teachers Union President Karen Lewis explained why the strike was unavoidable:

“We’re not far apart on compensation, however we are apart on benefits. We want to maintain the existing health benefits…”

I don’t see why that’s even an issue; Big Guy said “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” Didn’t Rhambo get the memo?

Screenshot Studio capture #583The red shirts take to the streets in C-word, Illinois

Oh well, anything’s better than talking about that 3 letter word, jobs, jobs, jobs!

Butt don’t worry about that either because we’ve got a plan: We’re setting a goal! (Goals are important: it’s the first thing you learn in rehab.)  Our goal is to add 1 million additional manufacturing jobs within the next 4 years! And according to Big Guy’s plan, all of those jobs, jobs, jobs! will produce products “Stamped with 3 proud words… made in the USA!”

Now do you see how important those teachers?

The Price of Politics: It’s high - but on sale!

I had originally reserved today to recap some of the antics from the lesser acts at last week’s DNC (Democratic National Circus).

Such as Sandy Two Buck Fluke,

Kerry “Today there are people trying (to) take away rights that our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers fought for: our right to vote, our right to choose, affordable quality education, equal pay, access to health care. We the people can't let that happen!” Washington,

and Joey “fact-check me, I dare you!” Biden.

imagesCAVZ9083kerry washjoeyb

They can keep all of the other ones, butt may we reconsider their right to vote?

Butt then news about a new soon-to-be-released blockbuster by Bob Woodward came out in the Washington Post:

Inside story of Obama’s struggle to keep Congress from controlling outcome of debt ceiling crisis

and there are a lot of juicy tidbits in The Price of Politics. I mean, aside from Big Guy trying to prevent Congress from performing their constitutional responsibilities.

All of which forces me to revisit last year’s debt crisis. I just knew that John Boehner folded on that train bound for nowhere. Butt who knew that Big Guy, in addition to the rest of his amazing skills (he’s a surprisingly good pool player, you know) was also a world class poker player?

During yet another budget meeting in which House and Senate leaders were talking with the president about the amount of money they were willing to raise through both taxes and cuts, Cantor told the president that the two sides were moving in opposite directions. Obama did not take Cantor’s mild taunt lightly and responded, according to Woodward, “I promise you, Eric, don’t call my bluff on this. It may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this.” Obama then stood up and strode from the room.


As I explained at the time:

So don’t worry; even though Big Guy told Eric the Cantor  "I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I won't yield on this. Enough is enough." he promised to come back today after Eric has had a chance to calm down and come to the realization that raising taxes during a deep, dark depression recession really is a good idea.

Apparently Eric triggered this outburst when he took Big Guy at his word that these discussions were not going to be about political posturing. He ill-manneredly had the audacity to interrupt Big Guy - 15 minutes into his political posturing - to suggest a short-term solution.

That impertinence on the part of one of the little people, who clearly doesn’t know his place, triggered that “petulant-child syndrome” we’ve been trying to keep under wraps. I guess we still need to work on it a bit.

Not that Big Guy really has any love for the game of poker, he just likes “Winning!”


Butt even at the time, everybody thought that Big Guy was bluffing:

raise the debt ceiling or i'll make you sorry copy

Not so according to Woodward! He really did have all the cards, and he was willing to play them even if it meant placing the entire world’s economy on the line in order to ensure his reelection. That is Won gutsy cowboy, no?

Here’s an excerpt from BO’s private conversation with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (and Harry’s chief of staff (Mr. Krone) who tagged along to explain the Congressional deal because Harry, like Big Guy, isn’t a “detail guy”):

I am not going to sign a bill that requires me to deal with the debt ceiling a second time before the election, the president told him. He was furious. (snip)

The 44-year-old Krone outlined the plan, including a secret Republican pledge to count $1 trillion in savings from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan toward deficit reduction. That was surprising. Earlier, Boehner had not been willing to accept this accounting gimmick. [ed. i.e. a sham]

“I don’t trust these guys,” the president said dismissively.(snip)

“Mr. President, I am sorry — with all due respect — that we are in this situation that we’re in, but we got handed this football on Friday night. And I didn’t create this situation. The first thing that baffles me is, from my private-sector experience, the first rule that I’ve always been taught is to have a Plan B. And it is really disheartening that you, that this White House did not have a Plan B.” (snip)

“That is a horrible position that we’re in,” Krone said. “And so this may not be the perfect deal, but it’s the only deal that we have on the table right now in the situation that we find ourselves.”

Obama replied: “…I’m not doing that. The one thing that we need to bring stability to this economy is not throwing the debt limit increase back into the political arena. I’m not doing that under any circumstances. So if that means that I’m not signing this bill, I’m not signing the bill.”

Ah yes, BO, taking charge. The guy on the palomino pony. Being the cowboy.


The impact on his political future if BO were to fold was made perfectly clear by Plouffe-Daddy:

“If he caves,” said David Plouffe, Obama’s senior political adviser, “it will have long-lasting political repercussions that we may never get out of. If we draw a line in the sand on something this important and cross it, we may never be able to come back.”

Accepting a two-step deal would not work, Plouffe said. “We will not get credit for doing anything. We’ll look like we got bullied by a bunch of very unpopular and irresponsible people.”

So rest assured, we do have our priorities straight:


When all was said and done, it was Boehner who folded. Not his fault. He’s not a strong man.

boehner crys e

I wonder how he ever got to be House Leader in the first place? Oh, right. Seniority. Like unions. I thought the Republicans were opposed to unions? Maybe they should at least look into renegotiating his contract with America.

Anyway, so here we are again, on the edge of the proverbial fiscal cliff. Rest assured, we won’t fall off until after the election. Thanks to the backbone of our leaders. All of whom have their priorities straight.

ies-with-senate-majority-leader-harry-reid-senate-minority-leader-mitch-mcconnell-house-minority-leader-nancy-pelosi-and-house-speaker-john-boehner-on-may-16Take two, there’s plenty here for us!

Boehner told Woodward that at one point, when Boehner voiced concern about passing the deal they were working out, the president reached out and touched his forearm.

“John, I’ve got great confidence in my ability to sway the American people,” Boehner quotes the president as having told him.

Although it seems as of late, BO may be questioning his amazing gift just a little; he told Charlie Rose that his biggest mistake to date has been not telling America a good enough story.

book readingMaybe we could try new storybook; one that isn’t all about you?

Obama-mitt-bookIf Mitt doesn’t have to apologize, neither do I!

Of course that might have just been Big Guy using the art of the humblebrag, now that he’s finally perfected that too.


Well, I better run now. Just look how late it’s getting!
