Sec. of State John Kerry, Genghis Khan, and ISIS/ISIL

Posted by madjillmom on September 11, 2014

Remember when John Kerry threw his military medals over the White House fence in protest against the Vietnam War? Remember when he used his voice to call our troops war criminals? Here is a snippet of that speech he made, standing there with his 70’s long hair, hanging with the malcontents, working on his liberal bona fides:

“They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”

Flash forward, past his stupid salute at the Democratic Convention and his “reporting for duty” speech to accept the nomination of his party, past the windsurfing and all the plastic surgery. Now he is the Sec. of State. Now he can actually see an Army wiping out villages, beheading journalists, and acting generally “in the fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan”. So, who you gonna call – the American Military, the ones you accused of war crimes, to protect your green zone embassy. Of course, don’t call it a war. Global climate change is really the bad thing according to Lt. John Kerry.

Obama’s Inconvenient Benghazi

Posted by madjillmom on May 20, 2014

Benghazi is an inconvenience for Barack. Too bad. Here is how it seemed to go down.

Obama decides to go into Benghazi because there were reports on TV that thousands were being killed by Colonel Gaddafi. We were told that the bodies were stacking up. We didn’t see them, but that was what we were told. Worried that this might be a Rwanda thing, Pres. Obama decides, on his own, to go in with air strikes.

It was supposed to take a few weeks, but it took 6 months. Costs explode due to the time it took. Obama thought this would be a slam dunk and it was the right time, not to close to re-election. This was the first inconvenience about Obama’s policy.

Colonel Gaddafi is shot in a ditch. Obama calls it all good.

OK, so now some more inconvenience comes Obama’s way. Libya has been spiraling downhill since Obama called it all great. Weapons given to fight Gaddafi have fallen into the wrong hands. There are lots of attacks. Attacks on diplomats. Great Britain pulls out. There are even attacks on the compound in Benghazi. But nothing is done. The State Department and Hillary are very busy traveling the world and putting in very expensive electric car charging stations in Europe.

It is about 6 weeks out from the 2012 election, and things are about to get really inconvenient for Barack. The Benghazi compound is attacked and overrun with the Ambassador in residence. Why was he there on 9/11? There is very little security, even though the Ambassador has been asking for more over and over again. Ambassador killed, another American killed. Fight goes to CIA Annex next. Two more Americans killed. No response from the military. Was Obama too busy to order the military to the area to dissuade further killings? Obama is probably working on debate prep. He has a campaign event tomorrow in Las Vegas. Gosh, darn. This is really inconvenient. Thank goodness the press is in his corner. They spend 3 days castigating Romney for his comments on the death of 4 Americans rather than investigating what the President and the administration was doing about the attack.

The White House goes into Campaign mode. Quick, blame the video. Tell the families that they died because a Coptic Christian put up a video that Islam finds offensive. Make a commercial for $70,000 to run in Pakistan even though you know that the video wasn’t he problem. Send Susan Rice out to lie. Monkey with the talking points. Take out anything that makes Obama or Hillary look bad. Gosh, this is darn inconvenient, but it seems to be working.

Even a year later, let Hillary pull out the lie before congress. What does it matter now? Obama won reelection. Why sweat it. Don’t give the memos to congress, just keep stalling until you can say “Dude, that is like two whole years ago.”

Oh, so inconvenient for Obama. His mini-war has wrought death and distraction, lies and more lies. Today, Libya is in great turmoil. Will Obama take some of the credit for it? Because the deaths now in Libya and most of the carnage in Syria are a direct result of Obama’s foreign policy “doctrine”. After Libya, and Obama’s chosen action there that went bad and is still going bad, Obama is so impotent in Syria. He draws red lines and blood runs down the street. The bodies are really stacking up in Syria.

Lots and lots of questions unanswered about Benghazi. Lots of chaos still there and all over Libya. Lots of killing in Syria. How very inconvenient.

Hashtag Missile Shield Needed

Posted by madjillmom on May 10, 2014

In a remarkable new episode of the reset relationship/cold war between Russia/Putin and US/Obama/Hillary/John Kerry, there is a report that a barrage of hashtags/octothorpes/pound signs have fallen near Vladamir Putin while he was out and about in the newly annexed Crimea. One of Putin’s body guards was hit in the noggin during this hashtag barrage and required an ice bag and a bandaid.

In a related incident, Boko Harum, hiding in the bush in Nigeria, with all those kidnapped Christian girls, was also hit with a significant batch of hashtags just before they sold these poor girls into slavery. Hillary was said to be very excited that her hashtags made a difference.

Cold War or Twitter War

Posted by madjillmom on April 26, 2014

Speak softly and carry a big octothorpe isn’t exactly what Teddy did. But it is what Obama and John Kerry are doing. Obama’s entire foreign policy is so totally lame or inept. Somehow he thought that not being George Bush would be enough to make the world take notice and be better. Now we are weaker than ever. The President has no balls. His entire policy is hashtags, speeches and empty threats. Tee up some more sanctions against Putin while the citizens of Ukraine polish up on their Russian. Tweets versus troops massed on the Ukraine border.

US Troops in Poland

Posted by madjillmom on April 23, 2014

Obama sends US troops to Poland to reassure them that we will honor our commitment to NATO treaties Ias opposed to the pact Clinton signed with Ukraine to protect their sovereignty. Too bad Obama took out the missile defense (Star Wars) system about 10 minutes after he became President of the World in 2008. I am sure I would love to have one of my sons there without the shield.  Pulling Star Wars out of Poland was one of the first signs of weakness on Obama’s part. How those chickens have come home to roost.

Obama and the Nuclear Security Summit

Posted by madjillmom on March 27, 2014

Obama is asking other nations to give up their nuclear weapons just like Clinton had the Ukraine give up their weapons in exchange for a pact that Europe and America would protect their sovereignty. Wonder how they feel about that after the last month?

End wars, don’t win them! Peace through Weakness! Just being more flexible with Putin!

Obama Pokes Putin

Posted by madjillmom on March 27, 2014

A few days ago, Obama answered some questions in the Netherlands, while at a Nuclear Summit with other world leaders. He bristled at a question about Romney being right two years ago about Russia/Putin. He poked the BEAR. Called Russia a “regional” threat, belittled Putin and Russia for their actions in taking Crimea. So now, Russia/Putin must respond to prove they are not indeed a regional power. So will their next move be courtesy of Obama and his poking.

Regional is questionable. Syria is not near Russia. Iran is not in Russia’s region. Europe is not Russia’s region. Putin and Russia play a big role in all these issues so they aren’t just a regional threat.

Obama Disses Michelle

Posted by madjillmom on March 19, 2014

While doing some really important Presidential Stuff (filling out his NCAA bracket), Obama let fly a cliché that if he won Warren Buffets money for a perfect prediction, that Michele would want some more shoes. How sexist and stereotypical. Michele should be offended. I think I am.

Meanwhile, back in Russia, Putin chuckles. While Putin reconstitutes the USSR, Obama ponders basketball.

Petraeus, Benghazi, and Eric Holder’s Justice Department

Posted by madjillmom on March 6, 2014

The investigation into Gen. Petraeus’ affair is still ongoing. What better way to make sure that he cannot tell all he knows about Benghazi. It is much better for Obama to have leverage over him. Now there are indications that Morell, second in command at CIA, was knee-deep in the talking points and covering for Hillary.

We were lied to because Obama couldn’t admit the obvious during his campaign for re-election.

Obama/Hillary/Kerry Reset with Russia

Posted by madjillmom on March 5, 2014

Pretty funny.

Kerry acts like he doesn’t know anything about the Hillary Reset Button with Russia. 

Now, Hillary starts talking about the Ukraine and pretty much distances herself from Obama, the Weak.

Obama just can’t figure out what exactly is going on. So much for being such a smart guy. I guess as soon as he figures out Putin and Russia, he can devote a little time to Iran/Syria/North Korea. Where is his subject matter expert, VP Joe Biden?
