President Obama Spends More Hours on Golf Course Than in Daily Intel Briefings

Hat/Tip to Newsmax and The Daily Caller. President Obama is the king of having it both ways. When it came to the death of Bin Laden, he said this, “Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation…” Then along comes a group called ISIS, and Obama says this, “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama said, resorting to an uncharacteristically flip analogy. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin […]

5,000 Covert ‘Boots on Ground’ in Syria by Year’s End

Former CIA Director, Gen. Michael Hayden Hat/Tip to Greg Richter at Newsmax. Even though we’re not going to put boots on the ground in Syria, we’re, uh, well – we’re gonna have boots on the ground in Syria. Yeah, the most transparent administration on earth strikes again… Despite pledges from the White House that no American ground troops will be sent to fight the Islamic State (ISIS), Gen. Michael Hayden, former head of the CIA and NSA, thinks that up to 5,000 Americans will be on the ground by the end of the year. “It might be through covert action […]

Greta Goes “On The Record” About Obama’s Foreign Intelligence Failings

Greta Van Sustern is a career journalist and true to the best sense of the word, she sees things right down the middle. I don’t know what her politics are, and I don’t care because she reports the news the old fashioned way. She calls it like she sees it and never throws a slant on the news, either right or left. She’s posted a video on her youtube page and I thought she raised some great points. In the video she discusses the beheading of the American citizen and Photojournalist, James Foley. She talks about the dangers of ISIS, […]

ISIS to Offer Universal Healthcare

ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, announced today that it will be introducing universal health care in areas under their control. “The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” began the statement “are pleased to announce that all Muslims will have access to free, universal healthcare.” We do this because the prophet wants us to.  Under our caliphate, believers in the prophet can go to any hospital, office or goat-filled cave to have their medical needs met. This means that women will no longer have to worry that they will not be able to afford their female genital mutilation. […]

The Arrogance of Some High Profile Lawbreakers

The idea that we are all equal under the law is pure horse puckey. That shouldn’t be news to anyone who isn’t brain dead. Justice often goes to who can afford the best lawyer or who is more politically connected. No doubt the family of Mary Jo  Kopechne, for example, have some thoughts on the subject. Most people in America are law-abiding. Even when they don’t like a particular law or even when that believe a law to be unjust, they will generally abide by the law anyway. For these law-abiding folks, it really rubs them raw to see how […]

Have You Considered a Career in the CIA?

As many young people have recently graduated college they may receive employment brochures in the mail.  As a public service to my readers I now present one of them: Hello to all recently graduated college students.   My name is John O. Brennan and I am the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  Many of you are no doubt wondering what sort of career path do you want to take?  Is a career as a civil servant for me?  My major was puppetry and I minored in patriarchal oppression.  Does this qualify me for a career in the CIA?  I am 100,000 […]

Benghazi 9/11/12 @ 6:17 pm Susan Rice Given Tweet From Freelancer @JomanaCNN in Libya: Ansar al-Sharia Attacking Benghazi Compound

I’m wading my way through the new documents on Benghazi released by Judicial Watch and found an shocking tweet by CNN freelancer Jomana Karadsheh. The tweet was forwarded to Ambassador Susan Rice on September 11, 2012 at 6:17 p.m. U.S. time, which would be 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. in Benghazi on September 12, 2012. The screen grab from the .pdf shows that the tweet is time-stamped “27m” meaning it was grabbed for embed 27 minutes after it was tweeted. At that time, the body of Ambassador Stevens was still missing. The significance: Rice directly received a heads-up, whether she […]

Oklahoma Rejected Eric Holder: Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange Addresses OKC Policy Academy Swearing In

Eric Holder’s ‘people’ cancelled his speech at the Oklahoma City Police Academy graduation class with little notice — in fact, close to no notice. The earliest reports I find are dated April 24th, the day of the swearing-in ceremony for Police Academy cadets. His ‘people’ gave no explanation other than “regrets” and “heartfelt congratulations,” via an email, and denied the cancellation came because of the large and angry protests planned against the U.S. Attorney General. Holder may have cancelled, but the real story is, Oklahoma rejected Eric Holder.     Many thanks to all those who began online protests over the […]

CIA Wanted Tamerlan Tsarnaev on Terrorist Watch List: Media Silent

As the true nature of the Boston Marathon Bombing comes to light, the more incompetence is discovered.  We know that the Russians warned us as to the radicalization of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but no action was taken. Now we see that the CIA continued to want Tsarnaev on the watch list… The lying is profound, and mirrors the constantly changing narrative on the Saudi national who was first grilled in the Boston bombing. Now this: CIA Wanted Boston Bombing Suspect Placed on Terror Watchlist Breitbart The CIA directly asked the FBI to place Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder of the two suspected […]

Live Feed for Rand Paul’s Filibuster

Rand Paul is using a good old fashioned filibuster to delay the nomination of John Brennan for CIA Director.  His focus is drones and the Obama’s Administration assertion that the president can not only order the killing of Americans-not only abroad, but domestically as well.  Since the government has already declared his opposition as “potential terrorists.”  There are rather chilling implications for being a declared terrorist, potential or otherwise. At any rate, here is the video, via Raw Story… I will stickie this for the duration.

FBI Uncovers Consensual Relationship Between Adults

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, long known by its nickname “The Privacy Penetraters” has set the world of Washington DC afire with the discovery of the affair between CIA director David Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell. Speaking from Washington, FBI director Robert  Mueller told reporters that The FBI prides itself on uncovering and destroying two things:  Organized crime and consensual relationships between adults.  But mainly consensual relationships between adults.  Oh hell who am I kidding.  We don’t touch organized crime.  Those guys are dangerous.  We are all civil servants making a civil servant’s salary.  Who wants to get killed over […]

Benghazi Update: CIA Operators Requested Permission to Help During Embassy Attack, All Were Denied

The Benghazi story continues to take sickening turns, as we find out today that CIA Operators repeatedly asked to intervene, but were repeatedly denied.  FOX News has more… Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately […]

Benghazi Update: What Did President Obama do from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM on September 11, 2012, An Analysis of the Timeline and Administration Responses

The buck stops at the top on this one. Via memeorandum I saw this CBS News storyCould U.S. military have helped during Libya attack?: …Some lawmakers are asking why U.S. military help from outside Libya didn’t arrive as terrorists battered more than 30 Americans over the course of more than seven hours. The assault was launched by an armed mob of dozens that torched buildings and used rocket propelled grenades, mortars and AK-47 rifles. CBS News has been told that, hours after the attack began, an unmanned Predator drone was sent over the U.S. mission in Benghazi, and that the drone and […]

Parallel Universe Alert: It's OK for the CIA to Kill a Cleric, but for God's Sake, Don't Violate his Rights

Spock_(mirror)

Anwar al-Awlaki, a Muslim Cleric from New Mexico, is on the CIA’s “Kill or Capture” list.  Apparently, it is OK to kill Americans without a trial.  However, we can’t possibly violate their right to privacy!   While the New Mexico-born cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki, is the first American on the CIA’s kill or capture list, the U.S. State Department refuses to release documents about al-Awlaki citing his right to privacy. This disconnect was uncovered as part of the ongoing investigation by Fox News’ Specials Unit into the cleric who is a leader of a major Al Qaeda affiliate.  Through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in March 2010, […]
