Obama versus Obama: Then & Now

In 2011, when it was politically expedient for him, President Obama bragged about getting all the troops out of Iraq. “As a candidate for President, I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end — for the sake of our national security and to strengthen American leadership around the world.  After taking office, I announced a new strategy that would end our combat mission in Iraq and remove all of our troops by the end of 2011.      As Commander-in-Chief, ensuring the success of this strategy has been one of my highest national security priorities.  Last year, […]

SpForces Retrieve Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from Taliban – Exchanged for 5 Gitmo Prisoners

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, at age 23, went missing from his base in Afghanistan on July 1, 2009. Shortly after, the Taliban released a video showing Bergdahl and his i.d. tags. It is believed Bergdahl left the base willingly, for some yet unknown reason. He reportedly did not leave with a weapon. Bergdahl is in U.S. custody today, being treated in Germany. Our Special Forces retrieved him, in what is referred to as a “peaceful handoff.” UPDATE 1:32 pm, CDT: Fox is confirming that it was the Haqqani faction of the Taliban holding Sgt. Bergdahl. Horrible, horrible people! The circumstances of […]

Military Spouse Creates Incredible Military Art With Cake Batter & Fondant

I found a pic of this incredible cake from Janet’s Cakes, on this Facebook page. Janet Brown is an Army military spouse. She and her hubby have been moving around the world for 19 years. For now, she is not taking orders as they are moving to Korea, and yes, she gets to go. I’m not sure where she is located, but her banner shows Pennsylvania, Maryland and DC. Here are just a few of Janet’s masterpieces. Click the photos to visit, and look for the many other cake categories besides military.

Over A Dozen House-Passed VA Reform Bills Sitting on Harry Reid’s Desk

Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) interviewed with Larry O’Connor, WMAL radio in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, May 21st. Get this: she serves on the House Veteran’s Affairs committee and says over the last 18 months, the House has passed dozens of reform bills for the VA, some bi-partisan, none of which have made it to the floor of the Senate — meaning Harry Reid killed them, didn’t give Senators the opportunity to even consider them. Can we say anything other than Harry Reid may have killed those 40 or more veterans who were not treated, and may kill more as diseases have advanced […]

Ben Carson: A Run for Presidency? Message to Carson: AK-47s Don’t Mow People Down, People Mow People Down

The lesson here is summed up in Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). I believe Dr. Ben Carson is a very smart man, good to the core, honorable, decent, but I believe he, like many others, will falter when it comes to an issue close and dear to his heart. In this case, I consider black children dying in Chicago and Detroit to be an emotional issue for him, as it is for all of us. Dr. Carson believes some people should not have Second Amendment rights. Senator Rubio promised to secure the border before any “immigration reform,” but it the flick […]

US Military Tells Troops Not to Criticize Pedophilia, or Advocate for Women’s Rights? Tammies Are Silent

This is the tale of a story, and an non-story that is part of the story.  Recently, the US Military released proposed guides for troops suggesting that part of not being tolerant of Islam involves criticizing pedophilia, and supporting the rights of women.  That’s right, criticizing pedophilia and supporting the rights of women is apparently intolerant!  Cain TV has more… According to the proposed manual: “Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member” This sort of “when in Rome” mindset might not be so […]
