On a tip from my brother Gary
(This is one of the best articles I ever read)
VERY PROFOUND… AND TRUE… Lou Holtz nails it
The Democrats are right, there are two Americas. The America that works and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes and the America that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society and others don’t. That’s the divide in America .
It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.
That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.
The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just. That is the rationale of thievery.
The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat. That is the philosophy that produced Detroit.
It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.
The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope. The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful–seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society are a result of different choices leading to different consequences.
Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.
Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income. You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college – and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education.
You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course. Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.
My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an in equality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant. He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than mine. Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth? No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.
It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away, it is freedom. The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and short sighted decisions.
Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort.
The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.”
Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society. Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through mediocrity. He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other. America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts.
It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.
What Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow. Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.
“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

We all saw it coming.
Still this is unbelievable even for Barry! He doesn't do or say anything unless he stands to benefit. He thought parading the parents around like their worthless son was the second coming of Pat Tillman was going to pay dividends. He was sadly mistaken. Even from his warped perspective where did he see an upside in all this? The fact is we gave up 5 high ranking terrorists for a scumbag deserter, paid him $350,000 in back pay while Tahmooressi was left to rot in a Mexican jail, and then charge him with desertion so he could be put in jail! Where is the logic in this? What am I missing? They knew this long before the election and just like I said wouldn't announce it until after. Why?
1. Because they knew it was a dumbass idea from the word go.
2. They counted on the "Gruber principle" but this time it backfired.
The new precedent has been set...we don't negotiate with terrorists...until we do. It also goes to show you how this administration views the military. In short... they despise it. Bergdhal a deserter, was a higher priority then the decorated vet Tahmooressi.
It boggles the mind!
It boggles the mind!
Bowe Bergdahl WILL be charged with desertion
Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl fled without permission in Afghanistan in 2009
He was then captured by the Taliban who held him captive for five years
The soldier was freed in 2014 in exchange for five Taliban prisoners
His attorney has been given a charge sheet detailing the violations

An American army sergeant that was released by the Taliban last year in exchange for five prisoners is to be charged with desertion, it has been claimed.
Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has been handed a charge sheet listing out the articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice he has violated, retired Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer has revealed.
The soldier was held captive by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan from June 2009 until May 2014, before being exchanged for Taliban members being held at Guantanamo Bay.
Released US Sergeant Bergdahl to be charged with desertion
U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by the Taliban last year in exchange for five prisoners is to be charged with desertion
Retired Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer said Sgt. Bergdahl's attorney had been handed a charge sheet detailing the articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice that have been violated
Mr Shaffer, who now works for the London Center for Policy Research, said the decision had been confirmed to him by a number of sources.
Speaking on Fox News's The O'Reilly Factor, he said: 'His attorney was given what we call a charge sheet. A charge sheet is results of the investigation listing out the articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice that have been violated. The key violation is desertion. And this has been done. The decision has been made. Let me be very clear. As a corporate entity, the Army has decided that they want to pursue Bergdahl for this violation.'
Sgt. Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban after he left his unit without permission in 2009.
After his much criticized exchange the army launched an investigation which they concluded several months ago.
Sgt. Bergdahl spent about two weeks recuperating at a U.S. military hospital in Germany after his release before being sent to Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston on June 13.
He was then said to have been put on administrative duties at the base, awaiting the conclusion of the case.
Bergdahl 'desertion' was the ultimate betrayal says his comrades.
Mr Shaffer went on to accuse the Obama administration of trying to keep the results of the investigation into Sgt. Berghal secret.
He told the program: 'This is shaping up to be a titanic struggle behind the scenes,' he said. 'Believe me, the Army here wants to do the right thing … And the White House, because of the political narrative, President Obama cozying up to the parents and because he, President Obama, releasing the five Taliban … The narrative is what the White House does not want to have come out.'

Remember when the first red light cameras went up? Like sheep most Americans went along with it and said nothing allowing the government to trample on their liberty. A couple of years ago I read an article claiming the car companies will soon begin installing some sort of tracking device (under the government's purview) on all new cars. Sure, I know some will say...If you have your cell phone they know where you are anyway. But that's not the point! If I'm going to Home Depot to buy kitchen cabinets (my current project) is that any business of the freaking federal government?
I read the new NSA facility in Utah
listens to your phone calls and reads your emails in real time as you're typing. This was in the news cycle a few days and quickly dissipated. You would have thought an intrusion of this magnitude would have shook the pillars of our society. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
One day you'll report to a government facility to have a micro-chip implanted under your skin. They'll tell you... it's painless and for your own good. Go ahead and laugh.
But slowly as our liberties are taken away piece by piece, year by year, the sheep in the flock will come to the realization of what the founding fathers warned us about. By then it will be to late.
The Justice Department has acknowledged constructing a database to track the movements of millions of vehicles across the U.S. in real time.
The program, whose existence was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, is primarily overseen by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to combat drug trafficking near the U.S.-Mexico border. However, government emails indicate that the agency has been working to expand the database throughout the United States over the past several years.
A Justice Department spokesman told Fox News that the tracking program is compliant with federal, claiming it "includes protocols that limit who can access the database and all of the license plate information is deleted after 90 days." In 2012, a DEA agent testified before a House subcommittee that the program was inaugurated in December 2008 and information gathered by it was available to federal, state, and local law enforcement organizations.
It is not clear whether the tracking is overseen or approved by any court.
According to the Journal, the DEA program uses high-tech cameras placed on major highways to collect information on vehicle movements, including location and direction. Many of the devices are able to record images of drivers and passengers, some of which are clear enough identify individuals. Documents seen by the Journal also show that the DEA uses information from federal, state, and local license plate readers to burnish their own program.

'There will be a price': Obama team reportedly fuming over Netanyahu visit
This comes on the heels of the WH announcing Barry is going to Saudi Arabia following the death of King Abduallah. Barry has never been a fan of Israel and we would have to go all the way back to Carter to find another president who share the same sentiment. Something which has baffled me is how/why Barry was able to garner the Jewish vote in the second go around.
I had to laugh when I read Barry's upset about "departure" from protocol. Where was the protocol when he released the Gitmo 5 and declared amnesty?
In the world in which we live today he couldn’t find anything of interest to discuss with Bibi (aka “chickenshit” in this administration) like Iran building a nuke. Maybe it's because a Jew and a Muslim can’t get along. You really have to wonder about his priorities.
If you know what I mean.
Presidential pettiness in Obama-Netanyahu-Boehner dustup?
The Obama administration reportedly is fuming over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plans to address Congress in March regarding the Iranian threat, with one unnamed official telling an Israeli newspaper he will pay "a price" for the snub.
House Speaker John Boehner invited Netanyahu -- and the Israeli leader accepted – without any involvement from the White House.
In public, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest politely describes this as a "departure" from protocol. He also says the president will not meet with Netanyahu when he visits in early March, but has attributed that decision only to a desire not to influence Israel's upcoming elections.
But in private, Obama's team is livid with the Israeli leader, according to Haaretz.
"We thought we've seen everything," a source identified as a senior American official was quoted as saying. "But Bibi managed to surprise even us. There are things you simply don't do.
"He spat in our face publicly and that's no way to behave. Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price."
The anonymous quote was a throwback to when, last year, Atlantic magazine quoted another unnamed senior administration official calling Netanyahu a "chickenshit."
Administration officials, including Earnest, did not deny the quote at the time, though the White House stressed the criticism did not reflect how the rest of the administration views Netanyahu.
On Friday, Earnest once again was asked about tensions with the Israeli government. Asked if the decision to speak to Congress was a slap at the Obama administration, he said, "I certainly didn't interpret it that way."
As for the decision for Obama not to meet with his Israeli counterpart, he stood by the earlier explanation.
"This administration goes to great lengths to ensure that we don't give even the appearance of interfering or attempting to influence the outcome" of democratic elections abroad, he said.
Meanwhile, Haaretz also reported that Obama had directly warned Netanyahu to stop urging U.S. lawmakers to back legislation teeing up new sanctions against Iran.
Obama has threatened to veto such a bill, saying it could derail delicate talks over Iran's nuclear program – and Netanyahu's visit to Washington could give him an opportunity to further encourage sanctions legislation.
Haaretz reported that Israel's ambassador already has been urging members of Congress to support the measures. The newspaper reported that Obama told Netanyahu to stop during a Jan. 12 phone call.
On Friday, Earnest acknowledged that Obama and Netanyahu have a "fundamental disagreement" about the diplomatic talks with Iran.
"He doesn't share [the administration's] view," he said. But Earnest also said the "differences of opinion" do not undermine America's commitment to Israel's security.
As Obama officials often do, he described that commitment as "unshakable."

Just because Barry's a moron you would have thought at least one of his many advisors would have said. Mr President... I don't think this is a very good idea.
Seriously, I don't care if you're a conservative or a liberal.
Have you EVER witnessed any other president stoop to this level?
This is beyond stupid!
Oh...and this is his interviewer GloZell
He could find the time for an interview with this imbecile who eats breakfast out of a bathtub and wears green lipstick.
But it was asking too much of him to stand in solidarity with the world leaders, or at the very least send a representative, to France.
I guess he has his reasons.

They call this assimilation? A country within a country? I was under the impression when you migrate to a country you adopt the rules and laws of said country. Not create your own. England and France both have a very liberal migration policy which has come back to bite them on the ass. The Muslim strategy from the very beginning was colonization NOT assimilation. I wonder how they feel now as Muslims are literally seizing their country.
When will they finally get the balls, drop the PC, and eradicate this vermin? The world as a whole has the might and the power to annihilate Islam. Reverse the situation and I wouldn't be writing this.
The only question left is do we have the will?
Talk about a clash of cultures!
Does anyone really expect this is going end well?
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Monday decried the prospect of so-called "no-go zones," in which countries supposedly give up local control of certain areas to autonomous Muslim immigrants, days after Fox News issued several corrections in the wake of a guest's assertion that such areas exist in places like Britain and France.
In an address to the Henry Jackson Society in London, Mr. Jindal said that "in the west, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Shariah law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home," according to prepared remarks.
"It is startling to think that any country would allow, even unofficially, for a so called 'no-go zone,'" Mr. Jindal said in the remarks. "The idea that a free country would allow for specific areas of its country to operate in an autonomous way that is not free and is in direct opposition to its laws is hard to fathom."
Asked later on CNN whether he was backing away about his comments on the existence of such areas, Mr. Jindal said, "not at all."
"And I'm also making a bigger and maybe even more controversial point: that radical Islam is a grave threat, that we need Muslim leaders to denounce the individuals, not just the acts of violence, and also that it is absolutely correct to insist on assimilation," said Mr. Jindal, whose parents came to the U.S. from India when his mother was pregnant with him.
Western societies have a right to "insist that people coming into our society, into our country adopt our values, adopt our language and understand they're coming to become" Americans or Britons, he said, going on to note that such assimilation to Western norms and integration in them "is so important if we want to prevent those 'lone wolfs' and to protect our society against this threat."
The remarks from the possible 2016 GOP presidential contender came several days after Fox News issued several corrections following comments from terror analyst Steve Emerson in which Mr. Emerson asserted that such areas exist in countries like France and Britain.
Mr. Emerson went on to say that there are cities, like Birmingham in the English Midlands, that are "totally Muslim, where non-Muslims simply just don't go in," and parts of London where "Muslim religious police" beat and wound "anyone who doesn't dress according to religious Muslim attire."
"To be clear," Fox host Julie Banderas said Saturday, "there is no formal designation" of these zones in either Britain or France and "no credible information to support the assertion there are specific areas in these countries that exclude individuals based solely on their religion."
(Just to be clear I read a report recently claiming there are places in London and surrounding areas where law enforcement refuses to go.)
Speaking to CNN Monday, Mr. Jindal cited a local example reported by the Daily Mail and said the bigger point is that "radical Islamists hate our values, threaten our way of life."
"They don't appreciate, they don't condone, they don't allow freedom of expression, self-determination," he said. "Anybody that thinks you should be killed for drawing a cartoon obviously is a terrorist, is somebody … we need to get rid of in our societies."
He went on to say that, regardless of whether no-go zones are formally acknowledged by the state, they can still become informally understood by the society.
"The fact that you've got people that … in some cases want to set apart their own enclaves and continue to hold onto their own values — I think that's dangerous … It's not a surprise to folks here that there absolutely are areas where people are less likely to go, there are areas where women feel like they have to wear veils."

On a tip from Phil McCafferty
Former FBI Special Agent K. Dee McCown wrote an open letter to Eric Holder. The response has been epic.
Here is the letter:
K. Dee McCown
College Station, Texas
December 28, 2014
Attorney General Eric Holder
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001
Dear Attorney General Holder,
It is unlikely that we met while I served in the FBI. That being said, we served at the Department of Justice (DOJ) during the same years and on the same “team” conceptually speaking. During my service in the FBI I worked with a number of U.S. Attorney Offices in the United States to include a tour at FBIHQ where I worked with the Department of Justice (Main) on a daily basis.
I begin my letter with this comment to highlight that I am not a bystander on the topic of law enforcement in the United States. I worked and managed a variety of federal investigations during my 12 years of service in the FBI, to include the management of several Civil Rights cases in the State of Texas. In fact, during my last tour in the Bureau, I was an FBI Supervisor responsible for managing federal investigations in nine (9) Texas counties, many of which were rural; in places where one would suspect racism to flourish given the narrative often pushed by Hollywood and urban progressive elites like yourself. I performed this mission diligently and under the close supervision of two FBI managers; an Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) and Special Agent in Charge (SAC,) both of which happened to be African American and outstanding law enforcement professionals. I also performed this mission serving side by side with a variety of law enforcement agencies at the Federal, State and local level.
I have observed you closely during your tenure as Attorney General and notably during these last tumultuous years; watching you negotiate a number of controversial public matters to include the ATF Fast and Furious scandal, Black Panther Party intimidation at voting booths, IRS targeting of American citizens (citizen groups opposed to the Obama Administration,) the ignoring of US Immigration laws, DOJ criminal indictments of select news reporters and your management of several high profile criminal investigations involving subjects of race, notably African Americans.
Until today, I chose to hold my tongue. However, with the assassination of two NYPD Lieutenants last weekend in New York City, at the hands of a African American man with a lengthy criminal record, fresh from his participation in anti-police activities; coupled with numerous “don’t shoot, hands up,” and “black lives matter” anti-police protests (some of which are violent) occurring daily around the nation, I am compelled to write you this letter.
To be blunt Mr. Holder, I am appalled at your lack of leadership as the Attorney General of the United States and your blatant politicizing of the Department of Justice. Your actions, both publicly and privately, have done nothing to quell the complex racial issues we face in our country and have done everything to inflame them. As the “top cop” of the United States, you share in the blame for much of the violence and protests we are now witnessing against law enforcement officers honorably serving throughout our nation.
During one of your first public speeches as Attorney General you made it a point to call America “a nation of cowards” concerning race relations. That speech, followed by other public announcements where you emphatically opined that the odds were stacked against African Americans in regard to the enforcement of law, your intention to change the law and permit convicted felons to vote after incarceration, and your changes to federal law ending “racial profiling,” are poignant examples of how detached you remain from the challenges faced by law enforcement officers serving in crime ridden neighborhoods throughout the nation. These opinions are also indicative of a man that lives and works in the elitist “bubble” of Washington D.C.
Your performance, as the nation’s Attorney General, during the Trayvon Martin case in Sanford, Florida and the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, Missouri clearly highlights your myopic view on this topic. Contrary to your embarrassing prejudgment in the Brown case and evasive post trial remarks on the Martin case, neither Brown nor Martin were targeted and/or killed because of their African American race. Rather, as non-emotive investigations determined, both teens died as a consequence of their own tragic and egregious behavior; behavior that involved a violent assault on a law abiding citizen in the Trayvon Martin case, and a violent assault on a young police officer in the Michael Brown case. Yet you, as the number one spokesman for law enforcement in the country, blame the deaths of these men on years of institutional racism and the alleged epidemic targeting of African American men by police departments around the country; nothing could be further from the truth. Following the Michael Brown case Grand Jury decision all you could muster was the following comment:
“The Department of Justice is currently investigating not only the shooting but also the Ferguson police department in what is called a “patterns and practices” inquiry to determine if the police department has engaged in systematic racism.”
So, let’s get this straight. At a decisive moment in history when our nation required a strong and unbiased voice from its’ senior law enforcement official, you Mr. Holder, made it your personal mission to join with other racial antagonist and politicize a tragic event, accusing a young white police officer of a racially motivated killing in what we now know was a justified self-defense shooting of a predatory felon. Your behavior is unbelievable. You sir, have sacrificed your integrity on the altar of political expediency. You, Mr. Holder, are the “coward” and hypocrite you so loudly denounce when speaking of broken race relations in America.
Further to this point Mr. Holder, law enforcement officers around the country remain dismayed and shocked at the counsel you keep; that being your close relationship with none other than Al Sharpton, a racist “shake down artist” who spreads hate, divisiveness and the promotion of anti-law enforcement sentiment throughout the country; a tax evading fraudster who has unbelievably visited the White House over 80 times in recent years. It is simply beyond my comprehension as a former federal law enforcement professional, that you, the Attorney General of the United States, joined arms in common cause with a charlatan like “the Reverend” Al Sharpton; and it speaks volumes to your personal character and lack of professional judgment.
Violent crime, out of wedlock births, drug abuse, rampant unemployment and poverty found in many low-income minority neighborhoods are not a result of racist community policing and racial profiling as you so quickly assert, and frankly most law abiding Americans are exhausted of hearing this false narrative repeated time and again by you and others in the racial grievance industry. While no one, me included, would ever suggest that African Americans have not suffered from institutional racism in the past, I would strongly argue that we no longer live in the Mississippi of 1965, nor do we live in a country that even closely resembles the “Jim Crow” South of yesteryear. Those days, thankfully, are in the past as are the generations of Americans that supported such egregious behavior and endured such suffering.
Rather, Mr. Holder, we live in a day and time where the root cause of many problems faced in our African American communities can be attributed to the breakdown of civil order due to the rejection of institutional and family authority and the practice of counter-culture values; and most notably, from the absence of strong male leadership in fatherless black families. The reason that our local police officers are so often entwined in tragic events in black communities is because it is the police that have filled the void in these communities that should be occupied by moral and strong black men leading family units with Godly values. You, Mr. Holder, especially, should be thanking the police rather than persecuting them for the gap they fill in these communities because if it were not for the intervention of local police many African American neighborhoods would be in a state of total anarchy.
Yet tragically, you and your race-baiting colleague Al Sharpton (a paid media personality under contract with MSNBC news) choose to remain silent because to publicly speak this self-evident truth threatens to not only alienate and offend the most loyal voting constituency of the Democratic Party but diminish your and Al Sharpton’s self-serving power base in these suffering communities. God forbid that you would suggest individual citizens accept responsibility for their own behavior and the collective failure of their communities; it is so much easier for you and others like you to make excuses, play the victim card, and pander rather than address the real root causes that plague many low income neighborhoods.
Mr. Holder, the public is aware of FBI statistics that tell a different story than the one you and Sharpton preach. We know that young African American males, representing a tiny fraction of the U.S. population, are by far the greatest perpetrators of violent crime in America when compared to their peers in other ethnic groups, and, we know that citizens of African American descent overwhelmingly make up the majority of their victims. We also know that incidents where white police officers shoot and kill black perpetrators are rare and on the decline. We know further that although there are legitimate and bona fide Federal Civil Rights investigations in the United States worthy of pursuing, they are miniscule when compared to the false narrative portrayed by you, President Obama and Sharpton declaring rampant discrimination against African American men by police officers throughout the country. You are just plain wrong.
In closing Mr. Holder I will leave you with this thought; you were given a rare opportunity to lead with integrity during a variety of divisive and controversial issues during your tenure as the 82d Attorney General of the United States and rather than be a man of moral courage you chose instead to cower, further inflame racial tensions, advance false narratives and play progressive political activist.
Time and again you chose to “politicize” the mission of the Department of Justice rather than pursue justice and now, tragically, we are witnessing the fruits of your irresponsible behavior in the murder of two innocent police officers in New York City, assassinated by a man motivated by the flames of racial hatred that you personally fanned. How many more police officers will be injured or die in the coming days because of the perilous conditions you helped create in this nation. You, President Obama and Al Sharpton own this problem lock, stock and barrel and now it is your legacy.
As thousands of NYPD officers turn their collective back on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, another dishonest politician and Sharpton disciple, so too do countless Federal law enforcement officers turn our backs on you.
