Deface The Nation

Words To Live By

“For only the third time in his presidency, Barack Obama will commandeer the airwaves for an address to the American people directly from the Oval Office. I have to assume that Valerie Jarrett has become alarmed at the public reaction to his feckless response to the San Bernardino shootings, attempting to deny terrorism on the part of a couple one of whom posted her allegiance to ISIS.” —Thomas Lifson

Busy Signal

“Local Muslims Fear Backlash From Next Tuesday’s Bombing.” — Tim Blair (via @iowahawkblog)

Lady And The Trump

Fired

“Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by meDonald Trump

“”Some of my best deals were made by my son, Donald…everything he touches seems to turn to gold.”” Fred C. Trump

It’s a wonder that anyone other than the next-of-kin would want a Clinton back in the Oval Office, especially the distaff half of the infamous duo from Arkansas and arguably the more corrupt. But for modern Democrats, emotion and ideology will always trump (if you’ll pardon the pun) reason and common sense.  The presumptive Democratic nominee for President of the United States in 2016 is a political slug whose trail of slime stretches back to the ’70s, a woman whose former boss said of her:

“She was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

PresidentialAnd nothing has changed. Currently under investigation by the FBI for her mishandling of classified material via her private computer servers, Hillary Clinton is a vindictive human being of seriously impaired judgement and questionable ethics whose only observable achievement is world-class grifting.  A vote to install her in the White House she once plundered ought to earn whoever casts it an immediate express ticket to the far side of Hades.

On the other side, the Republican front-runner is an abrasive billionaire businessman with weird hair and an ego the size of Australia who has insulted more people in less time than Don Rickles — although, honestly, the recipients of Mr. Trump’s ire generally deserved it (right, Rosie? right, CNN?)  And, as far as anyone knows, Trump earned his boodle more or less legitimately instead of shaking down from California to Kowloon anybody with a spare peso.  Trump is wildly popular with the seething masses in the hinterlands, and, not needing either their dollars or their approval, is not beholden to the G.O.P. establishment, a fact which has those august old crony capitalists gnashing their false teeth and soiling their silken undergarments.

Assuming that Hillary can stay one step ahead of the gendarmes, and the Donald isn’t suddenly caught smuggling Chinese hairpieces over the southern border, it’s likely to be a wild ride along the campaign trail for the next 10 months.

America Don’t Need A Weatherman

Greatest Threat

“What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists [the climate change summit] will be…” — Barack Obama

It takes a special kind of idiot to believe the weather is a bigger threat to America’s national security than a gang of fanatic Islamic killers who control a land area the size of Great Britain and a war chest bigger than Barack Obama’s ego —  and this is an administration that has just about cornered the market on idiots.  Of course, it could be that Barry and his merry band of anti-American Muz-symps are a part of the gang.  Which would explain a lot.  In fact, viewed from that angle, Obama’s heretofore inexplicable foreign policy  is perfectly logical — and completely malignant.

Obama Welcomes Muslims, Gives Christians The Boot!

Why Obama Loves Illegals

 

Despite his sanctimonious posturing, Obama cherishes some refugees a lot more than others:

Iraqi Christians fleeing persecution at the hands of ISIS are being turned away at the American border despite having family sponsors – as thousands of Muslims are granted asylum. At least 27 of the targeted minority, known as Chaldeans, have been held in detention in San Diego since entering through the Mexican border this spring. Now, after months of waiting, 22 have been denied asylum and sent back across the Atlantic to Europe, as another five await a verdict.

In total, America had accepted just 727 fleeing Christians at the start of 2015 – a fraction of the 4,200 Muslims granted asylum – and few since.

Obama doesn’t want refugees…he wants Muslims.

The Decline and Fall of the Democratic Party

She Vehemently Condemns

Here’s why today’s Democrats are in serious danger of extinction: Since 2008, the party of the Jackass has been booted out of 69 House seats, 13 Senate seats, 900 state legislative seats, 30 state legislative chambers, and 12 governorships.  This is a worse record than the one posted by the original New York Mets. Despite such catastrophic losses, Dems remain committed to a destructive ideology that most Americans would like to see take its proper place in the fossil record. The Jackasses think that the people best suited to lead the erstwhile Land of the Free in the (thank God) post-Obama era are either  a demented old socialist who thinks Islamic terrorism is the result of global warming, or a foul-tempered termagant whose only qualification for high office is that she’s the one Democrat who literally has no balls.

Accelerating their headlong rush to oblivion, the Democrats, in the wake of the Paris massacre, have decided that the best way to win back the American people is by replacing them with illegal aliens and undocumented refugees from Syria whom Obama the Prevaricator and the rest of the Jackasses insist are thoroughly vetted — a process that probably goes something like this:

Obama Refugee Screener:  Are you a radical Islamic terrorist?

Terrorist:  No.

Obama Refugee Screener:  Okay, then.  Welcome to the United States.  Don’t forget to pick up your welfare check and your monthly food stamp allotment.

Terrorist:  Allahu Akbar!

The Democrats aren’t a party any longer; they’re a band of mental patients in search of an asylum.

How Many Of The New Huddled Masses Are Wearing Suicide Vests?

Not Interested

“Obama should not be the president of the United States. He was born to be the president of Oberlin College’s department of diversity studies.” — David French

“In the aftermath of a devastating attack by ISIS Muslim terrorists – including a Syrian Muslim “refugee” — against Westerners in Paris, the left believes the true threat to the West is…the intolerance of the West.” Ben Shapiro

“Obama gave his typical bloodless ‘I’d rather be golfing’ sort of listless drone about the dead of Paris and his alleged enemies in ISIS, but then, as usual, became interested and emotionally engaged when he was asked about his real enemies, Republicans and Americans.” (Obama’s Disastrous Press Conference)

“Obama and his political allies believe that crime can’t be fought with cops and wars can’t be won with soldiers. The only answer lies in addressing the root causes which, after all the prattling about climate change and colonialism, really come down to the Marxist explanation of inequality.” — Daniel Greenfield

Obama and the Democrats apparently would like to move the entire population of Syria into Montana or someplace.  But the governors of 29 sovereign states are telling him it’s time to punt.  If resettlement was an NFL game, this would be termed a blowout.

Poll: Third of Syrian Refugees Are ISIS Sympathizers. What could go wrong?

moving

A poll released in November but ignored by the mainstream media shows that a third of Syrian refugees do not want the Muslim terrorist group ISIS defeated, reports Gateway Pundit. 

The poll reveals that thirteen percent of Syrian refugees have a positive opinion of ISIS. That’s a big, collective thumbs-up to a gang of savages who burn people alive, enslave women, behead children, and heave gay men to their deaths from rooftops. Another ten percent have a negative opinion to some extent on the terror group, though the poll doesn’t specify in what way. Perhaps that ten percent feels that ISIS isn’t killing enough gay men.

The poll also shows that thirty-one percent of Syrian refugees oppose the campaign to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS.

Applying those figures to the 10,000 Syrian refugees Obama plans to bring into the United States means that Obama will be allowing into the country around 1,300 people who are rooting for our destruction at the hands of ruthless jihadists, and a total of 3,100 who, at best, do not want ISIS defeated. Applying those numbers to the 1,600 Syrian refugees the Obama administration imported in the last fiscal year means the possibility of about 200 Syrian refugee ISIS supporters and a total of nearly 500 ISIS sympathizers are already here.

And Obama wonders why over half the governors in the country refuse to go along with his plan to import 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year. (via TruthRevolt)

A Leaky Container

Leaky Container

“I’ll show you Paris in the morning
I’ll show you London afternoon
If you feel your Dublin heart is burning
Yeah, well you don’t have to worry cause we’re goin’ there soon…— Joe Purdy

“If you honestly take Barack Obama’s full body of work as President into account and consider for one second that no one can be so consistently wrong in every single decision that he has made, you too might start to wonder…” (Obama’s Master Plan: Because No President Could Be This Bad By Accident!)

“Obama’s exemption from reality has expired. He must either commit to leading the free world to victory, or step aside so someone else can.” Michael Goodwin

leaking-jug_cartoon“I don’t want to speculate on who did this,” said Barack Obama as the corpses piled up like cordwood inside the Bataclan concert hall in Paris on Friday. No place for idle speculation in Obamaland, of course — not unless it involves police officers or Republicans. Could’ve been anybody who machine-gunned the defenseless citizens of gay Paree — Buddhists or the Amish or maybe a gang of rabid anti-abortionists. That the killers gleefully shouted “Allahu akbar” while pulling their triggers was only the unlikeliest of coincidences.  After all, hadn’t Obama told his old pal George Stephanopolis just hours before that ISIS had been contained?  His strategy was working.  The Caliphate was being hashtagged to death.  And besides, climate change was a bigger threat to America’s national security than any number of unidentifiable homicidal miscreants armed with Kalashnikovs and suicide vests.

Islamic TerrorBut, as it is with everything Barack Obama has claimed since the dismal day he began his nefarious mission to “fundamentally transform” the greatest country on earth, the truth was precisely the opposite.   The Arctic ice isn’t receding; the Islamic state is advancing.  And, for the latter, if not the former, Barack Obama is largely responsible.

The Syria policy of the Obama administration is the main reason for the growth of the Islamic State (or ISIS) – and with it, for the current crisis in Iraq, and for a greatly increased danger of terrorism in Europe and America … The Obama-Kerry policy has also made for the more than 190,000 deaths in Syria, 500,000 wounded, and 8 million refugees (more than 2 million abroad, 6 million inside Syria) — this, out of a population of about 22 million. It is hard to imagine a policy more irresponsible, or worse from a moral standpointThis policy has been a logical product of the attitudes and ideologies of the Obama administration: anti-anti-Islamism, moral posturing, moral inversion — enthusiasm about toppling allies like Mubarak, nervousness about toppling adversaries like Assad — and, under the guise of peace, an ideological neutralism directed against one’s own side, something very different from an honestly neutral objectivity.

The Muslim call to prayer might be the “sweetest sound” Barack Obama knows; for the rest of us it’s the signal to don the Kevlar.

Requiem For A Heavyweight: So Long Grumpy

Bugler_cartoon

Grumpy’s gone.

My friend Phil, aka Grumpy Elder, proprietor of Grumpy Opinions, father, veteran, patriot, blogger extrordinaire, and not grumpy at all, died yesterday morning.

I’ve become acquainted with many good people in cyberspace. Phil was one of ’em. Although I never met him personally, turned out we were brothers. We’d both spent time at Fort Jackson during the miserable winter of ’66 after the first large draft call for the Vietnam war. By telephone, we reminisced about Tent City, about meningitis outbreaks in the barracks, about cold, dead-of-night fire watches, and about those endless slogs up and down sandy Carolina tank trails. Later, we’d both shipped out to Germany and spent time wallowing in the mud during NATO training exercises at Grafenwohr. We’d shared so much, I felt as if I’d known the man for 50 years — besides, he liked my cartoons.

When we last spoke a few weeks ago, Phil never mentioned being in ill health. We rapped about Hillary’s e-mails, among other things, and how in our day, such egregious security violations as those committed by Missus C. would have, without much ado, landed the offender in a military dungeon somewhere. Phil told me one of his stories. I told him one of mine. He said I should do a post about it. So here it is:

In the winter of ’67, I was part of the communications section of a field artillery unit.  We were responsible for establishing encrypted com circuits between ourselves and headquarters during maneuvers, and for the receipt and decryption of classified and unclassified material both in the field and while ensconced on base.  That the army took this task seriously was evidenced by the fact that our personnel were authorized to carry loaded sidearms, rifles, and thermite grenades (to be used to melt down our equipment in case of any untenable situations).  Our field vehicle was a modified deuce and a half.  Our classified commo gear was packed inside in padded boxes, also classified (shape reveals function).  The interior of the van was classified. There was a lock on the inside and an Army Security Agency approved lock on the outside.  There was an authorized entry list.  Standing orders were to shoot anyone attempting to enter the van unless their name was on the list.  America didn’t kid around much in those days.

We played a lot of tag with the Soviets back then.  In the field, we often changed locations in order to elude any Russian spotters. After one such move, we pulled into a forest to bivouac, get the generators running and set up communications.  The ASA approved lock on the crypto van had frozen solid.  Since time was always of the essence, I didn’t have the luxury of waiting for a thaw.  I rustled up a bolt cutter and sheared that sucker off.   Once we’d run com wire into the van and hooked up the field phone, I contacted headquarters and requested a replacement. Our S2 (intelligence/security section), in it’s infinite wisdom, had not seen fit to outfit us with a spare.  Entered the call time and reason into my logbook.  Unpacked the com gear, established an encrypted circuit, and settled in.   Two days later, we received orders to move out.  The new lock had still not arrived, so I used my own combination lock to secure the van.  Back at the kaserne (barracks), I was summoned to the office of the S2 and informed that I was to be court-martialed for improper handling of classified material (negligence in securing the crypto van).  My lock, you see, had not been authorized for use by the security mavens at the ASA.  The notation in my logbook came to my rescue. Since the powers-that-be couldn’t court-martial me for their own incompetence, they decided to give me a commendation.  For displaying initiative. I don’t know what the moral of this little tale is, other than to always take notes, but Grumpy seemed to enjoy it.  I’m not sure that Hillary Clinton would.

I’m gonna miss Phil. A lot. Cyberspace is colder without him.  So is the real world.  Godspeed, my friend. I’ll see you when I see you.
