Chuck Hagel–A Sign Of The Time?

By now the world has heard that Sec of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has resigned from the Obama admin……Many are wondering and speculating why after such a short time would he walk away from such a prestigious posting.

First a little info on his bio…..he was a Sargent in the US Army’s 9th Infantry Division in South Vietnam……I have a soft spot for him because my first tour of duty in the conflict was with the same unit in the Mekong Delta….so I know what he saw and had to do in those days……we have a similar past.

Some say he was weak….Bullsh*t!  Personally, he thought that Obama was becoming to hawkish for him to work for….he had lived through the Delta of Vietnam and that made him a dove, of sorts……….he resigned because he would not compromise his principles….

This article explains why he left…….a continuous war for decades …..is something that he would not support.

2014 Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon #19

The hits just keep coming!  The closer we get to the midterm election the whackier some of these mental midgets become…….the new war has begun in the Middle East and I am positive that the cretins on the Right will be flapping their jaws incessantly……

Let the edition begin!

1–A reoccurring moron is the idiot from American Family Assn, Fischer….had his say about Obama’s speech to the UN…….

To Bryan Fischer, this was just another perfect example of Obama’s unrelenting contempt for this country, saying on his radio program today that any objective observer can see that Obama fundamentally hates America.

After playing an audio clip of Obama’s remarks, Fischer slammed the president for “dragging America’s dirty laundry out in front of the eyes of the entire world to make the world think bad thoughts about America, again acknowledging that America is the source of all the evil in the world … Every time that he talks to the world, he has to say something that is condemning and critical of the United States of America.”

Sorry if anyone hates America it is these douche bags that do not like it when the truth is told……they want to control our speech and our thoughts……they are IDIOTS!

2–I never get tired of just how absurd the Righties are to try and tie Obama to Islam……

Rick Wiles took to “Trunews” yesterday to claim that President Obama is “waging jihad” on the U.S. by ensuring that fashion advertisements feature male models with “Islamic beards.”

Wiles explained that Obama, “the chief rat,” is pushing the “Islamic beard on American men” through subliminal Islamic fashion advertisements

How does this brainless twat explain “Duck Dynasty”?  Their beards are more “Islamic” than anything I have seen in ads…….please dipshit explain that!

3–Then there is one of my fave d/bags……Mr. Rick Santorum……when giving one of his diatribes that he tries to disguise as a speech he sad……..

During his speech to the assembly on Friday and a subsequent interview with The Daily Beast, Santorum drew a firm line between the Muslim world and the “Western world,” arguing that America’s current conflict with the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) represents “a very big clash [of civilizations].” He then went on to insist on a distinction between Islam and Christianity, implying that Christians have moved beyond the kind of violence exhibited by groups like ISIS.

“Christendom [once] expanded by the sword, that doesn’t happen anymore … you don’t have any Baptist ministers going on jihad,” Santorum, who is Catholic, said. “The Western world has come to terms with religious liberty, freedom of conscience, and that persuasion is the way to spread the faith.”

Would those be the freedoms the the Religious Right is trying to ban from those Americans he does not agree with?

4–Those religious types are amazing….they criticize Muslims for their treatment of women and then one of them has crap like this to say……a Phoenix pastor quoted this Biblical verse in a Sunday sermon…….

1 Timothy 2:11. “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

Thank you the Right Reverend Steven L. Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptists Church…….these type of ‘people’ just refuse to come into the 21st century…..and for that I thank you…..you keep me posting.

5–Everybody should be outraged about the lack of security around the White House….as usual the Righties have found a new ‘crisis around which to build a bullshit case….and guess what?  Not all of them are old white men…….

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday argued that a recent security breach at the White House had happened because the Secret Service had placed a woman on duty instead of “a really strong person.”

“They brought in a woman, first female director — remember the Obama administration loves firsts,” Ingraham said on her radio show, according to a transcript provided by Media Matters. “You get the sense at some point that it’s the first that’s more important than the common sense.”

Someone please tell this asshole that being a hater is not attractive.  But it is good ti see that not only the men are dipshits women can have equality here in the conservative movement…..which could be likened to a bowel movement.

6–And that pedophile Ted Nugent keeps talking…….

After a group of Native Americans protested outside a concert by Ted Nugent, the late-1970s rocker verbally lashed out, calling them “stinkyass unclean dipshIt protestors” and calling for Native Americans to be “rounded up and shipped back to wherever they came from!”

Nugent’s differences with Native Americans stem from their offence at his history of racially-charged statements. After one tribe cancelled his scheduled appearance at a casino in Worley, Idaho, he railed, “I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy. By all indicators, I don’t think they actually qualify as people.”

He makes one proud to be an American……..maybe he should stop by the visitor’s center in the Rez and say hello…….I am sure he would get all the attention he deserves…..that will not happen because Nugent is a COWARD!

7–Ebola has all the nut jobs on the Right running around say crap……but the best one is from an elected Rep…..these d/bags have NO shame……

Rep. Steve Stockman yesterday chatted with End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles, telling the “Trunews” host that President Obama may be delaying the government response to the Ebola epidemic because he wants the virus to spread. Once it spreads, Stockman argued, then Obama will use the Ebola outbreak as a justification to declare emergency powers.

There will be more of the utter nonsense coming from the babbling morons of the Tea Party….

8–I wish I could go without having a mental midget from the Right spout the typical crap about Obama…..and this is one of the most mental of all the whack-a-doodles…….

On his “Trunews” radio program last week, right-wing conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles argued that American voters are now powerless against the Obama administration, warning his listeners that, regardless of how the midterm elections play out, they should anticipate the “iron fist of tyranny” from the “mac daddy” president as he tries to maintain political power.

“If Barry Soetoro’s socialist Democrats win, against all odds and common sense and history, we’ll know that America’s elections are rigged,” he said. “On the other hand, if the mac daddy socialist Democratic party gets an old-fashioned thumping at the polls, it still doesn’t matter: Mr. Obama will simply crack down on all opposition, use government surveillance agencies to spy on his opponents, he’ll continue to issue presidential decrees and ignore the Congress, and rule the country like a dictator. Nothing’s going change, except that he’s really going to step it up as a dictator.”

Sorry to sound like a radical here…but the American gene pool could be better served without this idiot swimming in it….

9–Seems like there are two things that appear in every edition of B3—–impeachment and Tony Perkins……both are silly and a worthless waste……

Perkins said that just as reproductive rights debates are still contentious because legal abortion “runs contrary to nature,” gay marriage will similarly never be “resolved” until it is banned throughout the nation.

“I don’t care what they do, how oppressive government becomes in order to force this agenda through, they will never force Americans to accept this, the majority of Americans to accept it. Won’t happen,” he said. “Some may go silent, some may be carried away but they will not resolve this issue, trust me.”

If Americans could learn the therm “trust me” is an alarm warning this would be a much better country…..

This is the end of edition 19 of B3….never fear there is still plenty more idiots that feel they must open their mouths…..and I will be there……

ISIS Coalition SITREP #44

Good day……all eyes are on Ferguson, Missouri and the reaction to the grand jury decision……but I will press on the war that no one wants to talk about…..

Item 1–I warned as did many others that the US intervention in the ISIS situation would do more harm than good….

US air strikes in Syria are encouraging anti-regime fighters to forge alliances with or even defect to Islamic State (Isis), according to a series of interviews conducted by the Guardian.

Fighters from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Islamic military groups are joining forces with Isis, which has gained control of swaths of Syria and Iraq and has beheaded six western hostages in the past few months.

Some brigades have transferred their allegiance, while others are forming tactical alliances or truces. Support among civilians also appears to be growing in some areas as a result of resentment over US-led military action.

This is not good news….and things may only get worse….

Item 2–The IS keeps sending weapons to Iraq but where are they really going?

Awash in oil wealth and massive influxes of US aid, Iraq was supposed to have the best trained, best equipped military in the region. After being routed by ISIS, there is huge pressure for the US to rearm them.

But the billions of dollars in aid they have to send to Iraq to build that military up again isn’t going to go nearly so far as you’d figure, because of the massive amount of corruption in the Iraqi military.

It is insanity to send weapons to Iraq so that ISIS will be armed….time to re-think the policy.

Item 3–The key, some say, to defeating (a delusion) ISIS is the province of al-Anbar….but ISIS is using a different tactic…….

A recent Islamic State offensive in Iraq’s Anbar province suggests that the extremist organization is changing tactics, relying less on local Sunni Muslim tribes for support and carrying out what one coalition strategist called a “counterinsurgency campaign” intended to undercut any U.S.-led effort to enlist tribes against it.

The outlines of this new strategy became apparent last week when the Islamic State launched an assault on Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, without the assistance of local fighters. That assault was preceded by weeks of assassinations aimed at prominent members of Anbar tribes.

This whole strategy needs a quick review…it is NOT working!
Item 4–Shiite militias and Peshmerga forces are at odds over a liberated town…….

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—Peshmerga forces have asked the Shiite Badr brigade to handover the control of Saadiya in northern Diyala to the Kurds a day after the town was liberated from Islamist militants, a Peshmerga spokesman said.

“There is the Badr brigade in Saadiya now and we need to negotiate with them in order to take the town back from that militia force,” Brigadier Ahmed Latif, Peshmerga spokesperson in the area told Rudaw.

Minor disputes like this one could erupt in ally fighting ally…..more problems waiting to happen…..

Item 5–Turkey to train Syrian fights….really?

Turkish and U.S. forces will train 2,000 moderate Syrian rebel fighters at a base in the central Turkish city of Kirsehir as part of the campaign against Islamic State insurgents, a Turkish Foreign Ministry official said on Monday.

Turkey had agreed in principle to train and equip Syrian rebel forces as part of the U.S.-led military campaign against Islamic State, but details on the numbers involved and where the training would take place had yet to be announced.

 

Smells like a problem brewing…..

While American people were diverted to thinking about Ferguson or immigration the prez made another decision…….

A new report coming out of the New York Times tonight reveals that President Obama has signed a secret order dramatically expanding the scope of US military operations in Afghanistan in 2015.

Despite claims that the war is “ending” at the end of 2014, the new order will ensure that US ground troops will continue to carry out direct combat operations throughout 2015, and potentially beyond.

Remind us again who was the anti-war candidate in 2008…..

This concludes today’s briefing…..

Thanx for your time and attention……

Benghazi—–Again And Again And…….

Yep…..there is more on the Benghazi situation…….after years of playing the media and the people there has been another ruling on the Benghazi affair…..after many hours of media bullshit there been another report on Benghazi…..it may be lost in the aftermath Of The Ferguson decision…..but nonetheless this is important…..

The House Intelligence Committee spent two years investigating conspiracy theories about the 2012 Benghazi attack and has concluded they’re mostly just hot air. Here’s the takeaway paragraph from the AP:

  • The investigation “determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue, and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria.”

Yes, then UN ambassador Susan Rice wrongly stated that the attacks were the result of a protest against an inflammatory video, but the panel found that Rice had been given bad intelligence and that neither she nor anyone else in the White House deliberately tried to mislead the public.

The report further finds no evidence that CIA officers were ordered to “stand down” during the attack or were intimidated afterward to avoid testifying, reports CNN. “We concluded that all the CIA officers in Benghazi were heroes,” says Republican panel chairman Mike Rogers and ranking Democrat CA Dutch Ruppersberger. The panel does, however, fault the State Department for having weak security at the US consulate, and Politico expects that criticism to resonate. This is not the end of the Benghazi inquiries: A House select committee appointed in May is still conducting its own investigation.

“A lot of hot air”…..pretty much what most people said all along but it took a couple of years pf wasted time and many millions of wasted cash to have the House said what we all said in 2012…

May we move on now?
