#ISIS Hashtag Triggers #ObamaForeignPolicyInThreeWords Contest

Uh oh. Looks like ISIS is taunting Big Guy:

“I say to America, that the Islamic Caliphate has been established, and we will not stop,” Abu Mosa told Vice. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.”

“We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he continued.

That’s not smart, I guess they don’t know how truly thin-skinned he is. And how much he hates it when his vacation is interrupted.

So watch out ISIS, Big Guy is keeping his eye on you. He’ll be launching his drone strikes from his beach head on Martha’s Vineyard:

And he can do it without even missing his tee-time.

So watch out Iraq, Gaza, Ukraine, Texas and Arizona: Barry is manning the drones and between that and our hashtag diplomacy we should have all the problems in the world resolved by the time we get back to Washington.

Meanwhile, Americans hijack #AMessageFromISIStoUS and launch a contest to describe Barry’s foreign policy in three words. Winners so far:

Your Ethics Chip is Now Ready for Installation

Just a few things to wrap up before packing for the Vineyards:

President Barack Obama stepped in front of the cameras on Thursday to utter words he hoped he would never say as commander in chief.

"I've therefore authorized targeted airstrikes if necessary to help forces in Iraq," Mr. Obama said in a statement from the White House. "Today America is coming to help."

That would be as opposed to the last time we came, under George W. Bush, to kill people and break things and…Halliburton!

And don’t think for a minute that this decision was an easy one for Val Jar. She was well aware that this would look like a policy reversal by President Lead-From-Behind. However, since the do-nothing Congress is already on vacation and therefore not in a position to get blamed for doing nothing, she decided to go ahead and move the red line we’re no longer using in Syria to Iraq.

Critics are already saying this is too little too late, and I guess you could say it’s a little like opening the barn door after the horses have come home to roost - or something:

Barack-Obama-Feeding-Chickens-91273Providing a helping hand for the world’s little peckers

I think it’s just a reminder to all of us to be a little more proactive. Be more like Lois Lerner and Marilyn Tavvener:

DAILY CALLERThe administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) deleted some of her emails and may not be able to cooperate with a congressional investigation into the flawed Obamacare rollout, CMS has warned Congress.

Marilyn Tavenner, who was appointed by President Obama to take over CMS within the Department of Health and human Services in 2013 — prior to the Obamacare rollout — deleted some of her emails and did not save hard copies as the Federal Records Act requires her to do, MSNBC reported Thursday.

Though Tavenner’s computer did not crash like ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer allegedly did, Tavenner may be unable to cooperate with House Oversight and Government Reform Committee subpoenas.

In a simpler time, before Obama (BO), this would have been referred to as an ethical lapse resulting in  “obstruction of justice.” Now days it’s known as institutional obfuscation and it makes you eligible for a taxpayer funded bonus.

Bye-bye American Pie! It’s been a Sweet Ride.

Perhaps this explains that “you’re dead to me” look in Big Guy’s eyes while toasting his guests at Tuesday’s State dinner:

1the eyes of President_Barack_Obama_ofTo the dictators! Long may we not “just be standing around.”

Or if that’s not it, maybe it’s because of this:

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that despite the steady pace of hiring in recent months, 76% of adults lack confidence that their children's generation will have a better life than they do—an all-time high. Some 71% of adults think the country is on the wrong track, a leap of 8 points from a June survey, and 60% believe the U.S. is in a state of decline.

Yikes! That’s going to leave an ouchie somewhere. Looks like all those low-paying, part-time jobs being created in this, the fifth year of our summer of robust recovery, just aren’t delivering on the American Dream. The paychecks they’re generating just aren’t big enough to get the lost generation out of Mommy and Daddy’s basement and pay back those exorbitant student loans they took out in order to obtain their valuable degrees in “Something-Or-Other Studies.”

Anyway, all of this bad economic news might explain this peculiar exchange between John Kerry and former President Jimmy Carter:

_Secretary_of_State_John_Kerry seeking advice from jimmy carterJohn Kerry, on Big Guy’s behalf, seeking economic advice from Jimmy???

Former President Carter told John about the help he got back in the 70’s on how to handle a continuing bad economic environment:

“My predecessor gave me 4 envelopes and told me to open one each year, should the economy fail to improve. At the end of year one I opened the first envelope and it said ‘Blame the economy on your predecessor,’ which I did. At the end of year two when things weren’t any better I opened the second envelope and it said ‘Blame the opposition Party,’ which I did. The advice at the end of Year 3 when things were still going down the tube was ‘Blame the American people themselves and tell them they’re not doing enough,’ which I did. Then, when I got to year four and the economy was still on the rocks I anxiously opened the last envelope and all it said was ‘Make out 4 envelopes…’ so I don’t think I can really help you here. If you’d like some advice on securing peace in the Middle East however…”

Apparently Big Guy’s staff figured out how the economy-envelope game worked before getting to the 4th envelope. They hijacked it and revised it to read: “Blame all the racists who are hatin’ on you” and have been ridin’ that horse ever since.

Unfortunately, they forgot to make out an envelope for year 5, so all I can say is: bye-bye American Pie! It’s been a sweet ride!

1958-chevroletNow THAT was a sweet ride!

…In which we continue to fall down the rabbit hole, darkly



Because there was no party to mark the 53rd year of Big Guy’s immaculation, Raj and I ordered out. Don’t you hate it when you finish up your Kung Pao Chicken and Moo Shu Pork and find this inside your fortune cookie?

fortunecookieAnd I think my “Lucky Numbers” look highly suspect as well.

Especially with you-know-what still floating around:


I’ve heard all the experts, including Greg Gutfeld, tell us why we shouldn’t panic over Ebola in America, butt I should point out that these are the same experts who told us we should panic over Bird Flu, Swine Flu and SARS, which there was no need to panic over. So, again, I’m suspect; the combined track record of the CDC and Big Guy’s regime’s doesn’t exactly lend itself to a solid sense of assurance.

In related news, I understand you can still sign BHO’s birthday card, belatedly, and send a REALLY BIG CHECK to commemorate the blessed event. Don’t delay, you’re not getting any younger, or healthier.

Open Thread Tuesday: Ebola in America

Question – Ebola:

Capitalist Pig Plot (CPP)?

vox ebola

Or Big Guy’s Secret Plan to Destroy America? (SPTDA).

And what does all of this have to do with BHO’s most recent Executive Order that allows for the apprehension, detention, and/or conditional release of individuals with certain severe acute respiratory diseases, not including influenza?  (Of course, we will determine whether it’s “influenza” or not.)

Inquiring minds want to know.

“Not One Shred of Irony”

While we wait to find out if Ebola is God’s way of saying “Shut the D*** Borders!” let us ponder this, via HuffPo:

The White House is making women's empowerment a theme in a Washington African leaders summit next week. Michelle Obama said problems with girls' education often stemmed from traditional "attitudes and beliefs" that exist even in the United States and lead to issues such as the gender pay gap and an underrepresentation of women in leadership.
She said men worldwide needed to "look into their hearts and souls and ask if they truly view women as their equals."

bo val_thumb[6]Or, more equal

"I am who I am today because of the people in my family, particularly the men in my family, who valued me and invested in me from the day I was born," Obama said.
"And as I grew up, the men who raised me set a high bar for the type of men I'd allow into my life -

low bar

which is why I went on to marry a man who had the good sense to fall in love with a woman who was his equal, to treat me as such - a man who supports and reveres me,


and who supports and reveres our daughters as well," Obama said.

girls can cookCome on girls, learning how to cook and hand out free stuff is important.

In related news, Lady M’s program to empower women has somehow resulted in the elimination of school bake sales. “A woman’s place is in Congress” not the kitchen…or something. I fail to see how banning bake sales is going to help; unless MO thinks getting women out of the kitchen is the best road to empowerment.

Can't Cok

BO, MO, and Joe: effectively lowering standards since 2008 -  without a lick of irony!

In other news: Ebola goes airborne. No, not via air evacuations, via pigs and monkeys. (I know, I know “no simian references, MOTUS!” Butt I’m just reporting the news.) Don’t worry though, we’ve been told by our government that there’s no need to worry about the evacuees in Georgia spreading the disease because we’re taking all necessary precautions. On the other hand, the two American aid workers who contracted the disease in Liberia were “taking all necessary precautions” too. Could this be the result of lowered standards too?

Lady M’s Summer 2014 Frocky Horror Picture Show: Part 1

And sleeves.

Then came our Fashion Icon and Busy Mom® who transformed fashion in the same manner her husband transformed America. Suddenly, everybody was going with the sleeveless frock look, whether they should or not.

butt debbie_thumb[23]Note to Debbie from  Hillary, the original piano legs-on-a-caboose pol: go with a pantsuit with a jacket that covers your fanny. 

So although I know you’ve discussed some of Lady M’s summer frocks amongst yourselves, here’s a short review of this summer’s transformational looks, in no particular order:
