CNN actually published an op-ed that puts blame on THE ONE, Barack Obama.  CNN contributor Scott Jennings pointed out that the Mueller report looks bad for Obama. It’s hard to believe but we heard the network is preparing a nice place in Elba for him.

All of the Russia interference did happen under Obama’s watch.

THE ARTICLE

The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it.

The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”.

Jennings asked THE question: Why did Obama go soft on Russia?

My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama’s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision.

Obama’s supporters claim he did stand up to Russia by deploying sanctions after the election to punish them for their actions. But, Obama, according to the Washington Post, “approved a modest package… with economic sanctions so narrowly targeted that even those who helped design them describe their impact as largely symbolic.” In other words, a toothless response to a serious incursion[…]

Unified Patriots by Vassar Bushmills

The lines of a ditty from the early 1960s suddenly popped into my head, recently.

It was late lest September, as well as I can remember

While strolling though the park in tipsy pride

Not a word did I utter, as I lay down in the gutter

And this pig came up and lay down by my side

Not a soul was I disturbing as I lay there by the curbing

When this high-tone lady came, and I heard her say…

“You may tell someone who boozes…by he company he chooses”

And the pig got up and slowly walked away 

I was 17 at the time, 56 years ago and I still remembered those words. See the video below, only because of the song.

It was sung by the New Christy Minstrels, a very popular folk group from the early 60s. and I saw them sing this live in concert in 1963. It was part of a medley of humorous ditties called Bits and Pieces and this grainy piece of film shows the group and the audience, mostly college kids.

Pay attention to the way the students responded to what would today be considered childish humor.

(Sorry, no video link, so you gotta cut and paste)

This is a conversation I can only begin as I won’t live to see it finished, but we need to back and rethink some things.

In scrolling through YouTube videos of live performances filmed and recorded on college campuses by the top vocal groups of that period, the Kingston Trio, Peter Paul and Mary, and these New Christy Minstrels, I saw live in concert my senior year in high school in a sold out university basketball arena.

It never dawned on me then that this concert format would die before the end of the decade, as would the folk music craze in general. Pop bands and vocalists (both black and white) were popular since the mid-50s, Bill Haley, Buddy Holly and Elvis (I saw Elvis’ first appearance on Ed Sullivan in 1956, when the cameras only showed Elvis from the waist up.) the best examples, and I was a regular at a local youth center since 1957[…]

The Battle Omar and the Democrats Will Lose – 9-11-2001 Edition

Unified Patriots by JadedByPolitics

There can be no doubt we are at war with those who neither respect nor adhere to the Constitution of the United States of America. We Americans are well versed in the hate for our country a large portion of the supposed “progressive” Democrats have. It’s not enough to run roughshod through American institutions and ruin them, they are now going full bore attacking patriotic Americans who saw 9-11 as the largest battle against Islamism in history. Yes, of course, we originally battled them, and created our Marines

The First Barbary War (1801–1805), also known as the Tripolitanian War and the Barbary Coast War, was the first of two Barbary Wars, in which the United States and Sweden fought against the four North African states known collectively as the “Barbary States” – Three of these were nominal provinces of the Ottoman Empire

I’m speaking in the modern era on our television sets, up close, and personal. We ignored the war that was raging against us after the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing

Omar Abdel Rahman:

In September 1992, explosives expert Ramzi Ahmed Yousef arrived in New York City on a flight from Pakistan and began planning an attack on the World Trade Center, with the alleged goal of toppling the north tower into the south tower. He received help from followers of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, a blind, Egyptian-born Muslim cleric living in Brooklyn who spoke in sermons of destroying the “edifices of capitalism.”

Our government acted as if there was no declared war on the United States of America[…]

Hey suckers! We subsidize the illegal alien DIRECT TO MEXICO program

Independent Sentinel by S. Noble

Last year, a shocking record of $33.48 billion in remittances went to Mexico last year through a government program operated by the Federal Reserve, Judicial Watch reported.

The money goes through a taxpayer-subsidized program sending money earned by mostly illegal aliens to the countries south of the border.

In other words, the U.S. government is mostly responsible for the billions in remittances to foreign countries that are sent by people breaking our laws.

Figures released by Mexico’s central bank show that 104 million transactions were executed in 2018, nearly six million more than the previous year. That is just stunning and must stop.

Uncle Sam facilitates the process with a program called “Directo a Mexico” (Direct to Mexico), launched by the Federal Reserve, the government agency that serves as the nation’s central bank, more than a decade ago.

GEORGE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA

President George W. Bush conceived of the program to provide low-cost banking services to [illegal] aliens to help them get the money home.
