James Taylor Diplomacy with France

Posted by madjillmom on January 16, 2015

So Obama doesn’t go to the “Islam is the Problem” March. He doesn’t send Biden or Kerry. Even Eric Holder who was in Paris declined to participate for unknown reasons.

So now a hastily thrown together meeting with Sec. of State John (I can’t feel my chin anymore) Kerry featured James Taylor singing “You’ve Got a Friend”. OMG. This Sec. of State and the State Department is so incredibly lame. They have taken “Reset” to a whole new low. Somehow, I see the State Department hoping all those Islamic Radicals deluded people who misunderstand their own religion of peace running around Europe killing magazine people and Jewish customers, that they will hear James Taylor singing about love and friendship and see the good in us all.

Totally Lame.

VA Emphasis on Green Energy

Posted by madjillmom on June 19, 2014

While they were denying care to vets and lying about their appointments in order to get bonuses, the VA was spending lots of coin to make some facilities (including cemeteries) green. This post at SultanKnish spells it out.

This parallels the State Department under Hillary. They were spending a lot of money at a European embassy putting in plugs for electric cars at the same time that Ambassador Chris Stevens was begging for extra security in Libya.

Our government is out of control. Redskins trademark, windmills in cemeteries, and electric car charging stations in Austria.

Kidnapping and Invasion – Obama’s Unintended Consequences

Posted by madjillmom on June 6, 2014

Dream Act by Fiat and Multiple Proposals for Anmesty for Illegal Aliens:

Unintended Consequence: Rumor to the south send thousands of unaccompanied children and some mothers to our borders. Now we are acting surprised and the people guarding the border are warehousing these people. Picture show them packed like sardines. Oh, and we need lots more money to house them, because we aren’t sending them back to where they came.

Trade 5 Big-Wig Taliban for one American:

Unintended Consequence: Memos going out to military in Afghanistan after bad guys state they are now focused on kidnapping and trading. I wonder if there is a similar memo going out to State Department staff? Obama says it had to be done. Now what happens when it happens again. Empty Gitmo!

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.

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.

Katy Perry and Security at the Embassies

Posted by madjillmom on February 27, 2014

Katy Perry has a video that offends Islam and Mohammed. I hope Sec. of State John Kerry has beefed up the security of consulates/embassies in the Muslim world. And I hope someone has issued an arrest warrant to the video producer/director/costume designer so this won’t result in the death of another Ambassador.

Keystone Pipeline Decision – 8 More Agencies Must Weigh In

Posted by madjillmom on February 4, 2014

Remember after Obama lost the House in 2010, his 2011 State of the Union speech promised to eliminate duplication and excess regulation in our ever-growing government. His talking point was amusing, citing the salmon and the agencies that regulate it in freshwater, another in salt water, another when caught, and another when canned or sold. Guess he wasn’t able to do anything about that.  Another Obama promise flushed down the drain.

We have now heard from the State Department on the Keystone Pipeline. They say it won’t cause very much damage. So now, Obama can’t OK it because 8 more government agencies have to study it and weigh in. The 800 lb. gorilla is the EPA who won’t want it. What other agencies are the other 7?  It took 5 years to get to this point. Ridiculous.

While Obama fiddles and whines about Fox News, this oil will go to China. China gives not one whit about clean air and carbon in the atmosphere. If you love the world and want to protect it, build the pipeline. It is kind of funny how Obama uses his pen without authority to be King but won’t use his actual power on something like this.

Rap/Hip Hop and the State Department

Posted by madjillmom on January 31, 2014

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.

Benghazi and State Department Facebook Spending

Posted by madjillmom on July 3, 2013

Between 2011 and 2013, Hillary Clinton and her people at the State Department were far more interested in spending money to get FaceBook “likes” than providing more security to the Ambassador to Libya, the murdered Chris Stevens. Way to go, Hillary! Don’t worry about actual security on the anniversary of 9/11, just make sure that the State Department gets a lot of “likes” on FB. According to reports, they spent over $600,000 of our tax dollars to accomplish this vital work.

Diplomatic Security and Filling Hillary’s Heels

Posted by madjillmom on February 4, 2013

New Sec. of State John “Purple Heart” Kerry tell us he has big heels to fill.  How cute! Then he goes on to tell us he will keep everybody safe and secure just like Hillary did. If I were a diplomat in a hot spot somewhere around the world, this would cause me great worry. You might die while doing your duties, but the State Department will provide you with Chevy Volts and plugs to charge them. Don’t worry, be green!

Does Hillary have big feet is another question.
