The State Department is having a rapper over to speak to the ranks of diplomats about Rap and Hip Hop. What a waste of time, money, and effort. What bullshit! Go ahead, waste your time.
Next time you are dealing with despots like Assad and Putin, just consider what you learned in this fascinating interview promoted by the State Department. I am sure it will help keep Iran nuclear free. I am certainly convinced that it will stack the deck against the ever stronger Putin. Further, I am sure that it will make dealings in deepest, darkest Africa so much better for having a greater understanding of the black experience in our inner cities. I bet this is just the “think outside the box” kinda thing that will finally allow Israel and Palestinians to work it all out somehow? How will this help anything? It certainly won’t bring back the 4 killed in Benghazi who didn’t have enough security while the State Department promoted electric cars in Austria at a great expense.
The world will laugh in John Kerry’s recently remodeled face. Mission out of control. Fire the person who thinks this is how to upgrade diplomats. Or maybe if the rapper raised some money for Obama, he can be Ambassador to some great African country like Kenya.

With less than 2 weeks to go, Syria has only given up less than 5% of their chemical weapons in the agreement with Kerry/Obama. They still have 95% to give over for destruction. The State Department admits that Syria/Assad is stalling and yanking their chain, with the backing of Putin/Russia. So Obama is back to square one, weaker than before, having rubbed out his red line when he turned in cowardice and sought a diplomatic option they knew wouldn’t work when Kerry misspoke at a meeting with the Russians. Iran has watched how this is done. Make a diplomatic deal, don’t follow thru, cook up a bomb and deposit it on Israel all while Obama does a song and dance about how he won’t let Iran go nuclear.
Putin – Stronger
Assad – Stronger, still in power, and he lied about how much chemical weapons he actually has
Iran – Stronger and disputing all the claims of Obama about their deal that we can’t read. (Why is the deal secret?)
Obama – Arrogant, Secretive (on Iran deal), and much Weaker. His half-brother wants Israel wiped off the face of the earth (the scarf incident) and I think he would be just fine if the Islamic Republic of Iran (he calls them this all the time) got the bomb.

Listened to quite a bit of the State of the Union.
He says we must close Guantanamo because of the Constitution. Oh, and he must go around congress with his mighty pen because that Constitution (and its checks and balances) isn’t such a big deal.

Obama and the Dems are railing about income inequality and hope to ride it to more Dem wins this year. Meanwhile, their policies make the rich richer, the poor more stagnant, and the middle class hurting.
News Flash: Since time began, there has been income inequality. Obama and all his minions cannot change this. In the beginning, the biggest caveman was a better rock thrower and his belly was filled while other lesser cavemen didn’t eat as well. Bigger and smarter took the prize. Stupider and lazier sealed their fate and made little money.
There have been artificial barriers erected. Slavery, race, and a lack of access have certainly been there. But many of these barriers have come down in our country. So now, what is the excuse.
Obama can have an impact on income inequality. His way is to take from the hard working and give it to the “victims” of poverty. The war on poverty has done this for 50 years with little result and 20 trillion of wasted money. He can tell all people but mostly minorities that there is a key to becoming successful. Don’t have children out of wedlock, don’t take drugs, study in school and graduate, speak real English without swearing, don’t take the rent money and buy the latest Nike shoe, take any honest work and give an honest days work in exchange for pay. Climb over barriers. Don’t wait for the government to remove them. There are some other common sense things that can be done. But Obama only wants to talk about giving more handouts to the poor. More government programs won’t help. Reward good behavior and punish bad behavior.
We have lost the War on Poverty even worse than the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Wendy Davis is running for Texas Governor. She is running on a platform of Abortions after 20 weeks. She is running as a trailer park teen mother who went on to be a Harvard grad. Wow. She is receiving lots of help from Hollywood. Stars are raising money for her and to provide for more abortions in my oh so backward Texas. Money is pouring into Texas from the outside to support this now famous Abortion advocate. Abortion is not my biggest concern, though I am pro-life. I do not vote on that single issue. I do not vote with my lady parts. I vote with my brain and experience.
Two other things pop out at me in the stories about Wendy Davis and her representations of her life story. She has two daughters. When she divorced her second husband after he paid off her Harvard education, he was awarded custody of those girls. What kind of a message does that send? Did she want her children? Why didn’t she fight for them? What kind of a mother is she? Being a mother is the most important job in the world. Only addicts and other really bad types do not fight for at least joint custody of their children. I can’t imagine a Harvard grad not fighting for at least joint custody? What is wrong with this woman?

Obama in 2014 whines about his popularity. Says it is because he is black. Not his policies. Only his skin color. He is at a low ebb. Wasn’t he black when he was at a high number prior to 2014? Are racists just figuring out he is black? Or are lots of people finally figuring out his policies are bad for America?

So Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada), the Senate Majority Leader, is castigating Bob Gates for writing a book to make money. It really annoys him to be denigrated by a pier. Just where did Harry Reid get his money? He has worked in government for decades. Never apparently worked int he private sector. He comes from a real poor area yet seems to have amassed a fortune during his government service. Just search for “harry reid’s money” and you will see lots of stories about him being mob backed, shady land deals, stock deals with insider information, and at least one book he wrote (The Good Fight,that he did not give away). This article is pretty recent. Check it out. Bob Gates is speaking truth to power, but that isn’t good when the power is a Democrat. Irritable Bowel Syndrome might account for the constant look on Harry Reid’s face. Harry Reid needs to go back to Searchlight, Nevada and count his millions. Getting rich while working in Government is nothing to be proud of.

I listened to the Christi news conference earlier. The MSM will hound Christi on this bridge lane closure until he is probably out of office. I have already seen Juan Williams ask how Christi could not have known about what his top level officials had done. Compare and contrast the MSM and their curiosity about the Tea Party IRS Scandal. Christi has already fired two people. Obama hasn’t fired anyone. He has let one leave early and one retire out. I ask the MSM to ask how Obama didn’t know about the Tea Party targeting when the IRS Commissioner had 160 visits to the White House during the time of the targeting. I ask the MSM to look at the Tea Party Scandal and look as vigorously at what went down and why didn’t Obama know about it. I also ask them to question the DOJ having an ardent Obama campaign donor lead the so-called investigation into the Tea Party IRS scandal.
While both of these scandals have legs, one is an stupid offense done by petty people with some power. The other rocks the tax code and the impartiality of a huge government bureaucracy with nearly unlimited power. One will be investigated by the MSM until Christi resigns. The other will be written off by as a phony scandal.
