Obama and the VA

Posted by madjillmom on May 21, 2014

Obama is on TV telling us how the VA has been a high priority for his administration. He mentions that he was on the VA Committee in his brief time in the Senate. So if he was always focused on it, why is it still this bad. Calling for another study. Will wait until it comes but will always care about our veterans.

Someone please find out how many VA Committee meetings he attended while in the Senate. Someone ask him why this is all news to him if he was on that committee. Also, please ask how often he has met one-on-one with Gen. Shinseki during this 6 years of his administration?

Jay Carney has recently told us that Obama only found out about the problems from the news. How could that be? Oh, yeah, they lie.

Obama and whitehouse.gov Brag About Growing the Military

Posted by madjillmom on May 20, 2014

Amid the growing VA scandal that Obama is REALLY MAD about, I looked on the Veterans part of whitehouse.gov. I was amused to see him brag about growing the military. Here is the part where he promises not to cut the military.

  • Expand Ground Forces to Meet Military Needs and Improve Quality of Life: Increasing end strength in the Army and Marine Corps will help units retrain and re-equip properly between deployments, reduce the strain on military families, and help put an end to stop loss. We also plan to halt end strength reductions in the Air Force and Navy.

I guess that is another useless promise from our President. Kinda like “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”. He hired dumb Chuck Hagel to gut the military. After all, the world is much safer now than before Obama was President.

Marine in Mexican Jail and Gays in the NFL

Posted by madjillmom on May 20, 2014

Another young man who serves in the Marines has ended up in a Mexican jail cell because he had guns in his vehicle and made a wrong turn. His mother is begging people to go to whitehouse.gov and sign a petition to get Obama’s attention. I am sure Obama will turn his attention to the issue after another exhaustive search into the sex lives of the NFL draft is completed. He wants to make sure he has called all the gays serving on the football field and basketball court to tell them how brave they are. Then he might have a little time before his golf game to give a call to his counterpart in Mexico or maybe he could call the family of the Marine and tell them he is planning on getting around to doing something about it.

Maybe his mother should tell everyone that her son is gay. That might work.

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.

Sec. of Defense Chuck Hagel’s First Visit to Dover to Honor the Fallen

Posted by madjillmom on October 9, 2013

Amazing. Sec. of Def. Chuck Hagel went to greet the coffins of the fallen today for the first time since he became Sec. of Defense. OMG. Not only has he been a joke, but he evidently doesn’t care too much about the fallen he commands. While I understand he can’t attend all returns, he sure as hell could have attended once a month since February. Unpardonable.

So today, in this shit storm over death benefits, he shows up, greets the families he denied death gratuities to and salutes the fallen. What a joke.

FBI.gov Pics of Naval Yard Shooter

Posted by madjillmom on September 16, 2013

Watched the latest press conference on the Naval Yard shooter. FBI lady told us to go to  FBI.gov to see shooter. Went there and can’t see pics of that shooter. I can see pics of Boston Bombers, articles on ’63 Birmingham Church Bombing, and some more stuff on recent serial killer guys. If you tell us to go to FBI.gov, make sure the pics are front and center, easy to find.

DHS to Say “No Terrorist” Indications at Naval Yard Shootings

Posted by madjillmom on September 16, 2013

Quick. Someone find Janet Napolitano’s replacement. Whoever they are is supposed to come out about 15 minutes ago and tell us there is no indication that this is a terrorist attack.  DHS is supposed to do this in absence of any actual facts from the ground. Never mind we don’t know who the shooter/shooters are or the motive behind the shooting, someone from DHS will characterize it as other than terror.

AP reporting at least 6 dead. Nothing to see here. Obviously another “workplace violence” situation. Never mind where it happened and never mind there might be more than one shooter.

Update: Janet Napolitano’s legacy is safe. There is report that DHS has issued a report already that there is no known “connection to terrorism”.  Now I feel so much safer. No info available yet, but DHS know this isn’t a terrorist attack. Never mind there might be three shooters.

Shock and Awe vs. Unbelievably Small

Posted by madjillmom on September 9, 2013

Ten days ago Sec. of State Kerry gave an impassioned speech imploring us to punish Assad for using gas against his own people, killing children and civilians in a horrible death. A strike was iminent. Flash forward to yesterday. Now Sec. Kerry tells us this punishment that must be meted out will be “unbelievably small“.

Kinda like Obama’s backbone. Don’t make threats that you won’t back up, Obama.  Don’t send your people out to talk big and then slink off to the golf course. Don’t draw the red line and then deny you drew it. You look like a ball-less fool. Either this is important, a moral imperative, or we can wait until congress votes, and then ignore the vote because you look so weak and you have made America look weak. Adopt “America, the Moral Superpower” or don’t!

Limited Strike on Syria

Posted by madjillmom on September 4, 2013

If you strike at a King, you must kill the King. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I do not know what should be done about Syria’s Assad. He now has time to hide all the good stuff. If he survives the strike, he will be stronger to many. I do not have access to the intel that Obama does. I am concerned that the British have backed out. Lots and lots of talk about degrading Assad but not changing the momentum. Didn’t Obama say Assad “must go”?

The use of gas is reprehensible. We are the only superpower that will do anything. If Obama has the balls, if his partisan nature hasn’t burned every bridge, if the national press holds him to account…

Obama didn’t plan very well. One overriding issue with me is the American military advisors in Jordan at the Syrian border. Makes me thankful one of our sons is in Afghanistan.

Valerie Jarrett and Obama’s Syrian Decision

Posted by madjillmom on September 4, 2013

High dungeon and impassioned speech from Sec. of State John Kerry.

A Sequestered US Navy amassing ships near Syria at a great cost and at the command of the highest levels.

Defense Dept and State Department people told to not count on a relaxing Labor Day weekend.

Obama and some of his (political?) advisers take a walk around the White House lawn Friday evening. It is beautiful. There are butterflies flitting from bloom to bloom. Obama decides to make congress the fall guy and not take any action on his own. Kerry and Chuck Hagel are informed because they weren’t on the walk around the White House. Was Valerie Jarrett on the walk. She is Obama’s “balls”. She is the one who wouldn’t let us get bin Laden on two separate occasions. Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton had to muscle Jarrett out-of-the-way in order to get Obama’s buy-in on the Navy Seal raid that killed UBL. Is she why Obama backed down? I wonder.

On Saturday, when we are all expecting at least a few missiles lobbed in Assad’s direction, Obama goes to play golf.
