A Banquet Of Consequences

Gibbs 3

“If feels like you’re being played, you probably are.” — LeRoy Jethro Gibbs

“Sooner or later, we all sit down to a banquet of consequences.” — Robert Louis Stevenson

“Back in 2008, Obama supporters would foam at the mouth if you suggested Obama was a socialist. Today, progressive activists are positively giddy about Bernie Sanders who openly identifies as a Democratic Socialist. Now that the mask has come off, should the Democratic Party change its name?” (Democratic Socialist Party U.S.A.)

Red BernieYou’ve really got to hand it to the Jackasses.  After having their hats handed to them in two consecutive general elections, after watching their President’s rolling two-year approval rating sink faster than a cement-shod Mafia informer in a Jersey marsh, they’ve decided that what America wants most is more socialism.   Well, I once knew a gent who had to dunk his tea bag exactly 71 times before he could take a drink.  He couldn’t not do it.  If he lost count, his anxiety would kick in, and he’d toss the contents of his cup down the drain and start boiling more water. He’d have understood Democrats perfectly.  Their candidates have to be pinker than undercooked roosters otherwise the ants in their skulls begin to crawl.   If they weren’t such a pack of hypocritical gasbags you’d almost have to feel sorry for ’em.  They’re afflicted, after all.

But it’s hard to feel sorry for progressives like Bernie the Bolshevik or the cackling Mrs. Clinton.  As I wrote last year in a bit titledThe Decline and Fall of the Arkansas Battleaxe

Camp CackleHillary’s major attributes have always been a vindictive nature, a foul mouth, a ruthless disregard for the U.S. Constitution, and a dearth of testicles. The latter qualifies her only as the standard bearer for America’s disgruntled legions of lesbians and feminists, while the former identifies her as a modern Democrat. Come to think of it, so does the latter.

Bernie Sanders Drinking GameAnd Bernie?  Well, he’s not quite in the red, pardon the pun:

We estimate Bernie Sanders’ net worth at $528,014, which is 7.8 times larger than the net worth of the median American family. However, since all senator net worths are estimates, it’s possible Bernie Sanders’ net worth is much lower. In fact, Bernie Sanders’ net worth could be as low as $222,026 which is 3.3 times larger than the net worth of the median American family.

Half a mil or so’s not bad for any commie not named Fidel, although it’s chicken feed compared to the boodle in Hillary’s closet:

What Hillary Clinton and her husband, Bill, pay in local property taxes on two luxury homes ($104,303) is twice the income of an average family. She earns more for a 20-minute speech to an industry trade group than a dozen fast-food workers make in a year. Her book royalties last year brought in $5 million, part of the couple’s $30.5 million in income … Her net worth is $32,015,000.  Last summer, Hillary Clinton decried the “cancer of inequality” while promoting her book Hard Choices–for which she snagged a $14 million advance.

When it comes to sharing the wealth, political progs like Bernie and Hillary should start with their own.

Democrats Debate, But No One’s Ready For Primetime


[Hillary] claimed to be an outsider because she’s a woman. She claimed that being a woman is what makes her different than Obama. If you hated a man stealing all your money and taking away all your civil rights, get ready for some real political change now that a woman is going to do it.” Daniel Greenfield

“There is no clearer attack on Capitalism than what we saw in the Democratic debate and the subsequent accolades from the media.” Sara Noble

“Insanity in individuals is something rare – but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” Friedrich Nietzsche

They should’ve held the first Democratic squawkfest of 2015 in Havana or Hanoi rather than Las Vegas. The Cubans and the Vietnamese would at least have been familiar with the rhetoric. Our national press corps, the majority of whom demonstrated their Americanism by sitting on their hands during the singing of the National Anthem, reacted as if the rehashing of the Communist manifesto by the likes of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton was the greatest innovation since the self-basting turkey: 

Progressive policies and ideals won the night according to the Progressives and their media friends at NBC … They touted the “authenticity” of the aged communist who euphemistically calls himself a Democratic Socialist … MSNBC, like most of the Democratic media outlets, which is almost all the media outlets, declared Hillary the winner and lauded her “big bear hug” to Progressivism. Outside of not falling on her face or cackling too loudly, what did she do that was so remarkable during this debate where none of her “opponents” challenged her seriously and where Bernie Sanders helped her by discrediting the FBI investigation of her emails and blaming it on Republicans? … The Democratic party is almost unrecognizable from what it was seven years ago. They do not stand for any American values... (We Could Be Living Through the LAST DAYS of CAPITALISM)

Demonstrating their normal civic concern, more Americans watched the fourth episode of NCIS than CNN’s offering of Progressives On Parade.  Well, if it wasn’t for determined inattention, no Democrat would ever win an election.  Don’t forget, this is the party that once booed God.  And these are candidates who shouldn’t be allowed out of the attic without adult supervision, let alone run for President of the United States:

Two freaks would be two too few for a Democratic debate. Standing next to Hillary was the animated wax figure of Martin O’Malley putting on a very convincing imitation of a human being … Every time his unnaturally white teeth shone, moths flew into his mouth … The horror continued with Lincoln Chafee, a man whose only purpose in coming to the debate was to take home the prize of the worst political candidate on this stage and on every stage in history … Amid this nonsense, Jim Webb broke in with occasional outbursts of common sense … Webb modestly declared that he was the “most qualified person standing here to be commander in chief”. Sadly, he was right. Not because he’s a great candidate, but because he’s a throwback to an earlier Democratic Party whose candidates could discuss serious issues like adults. That’s not the Democratic Party of today, which isn’t just radical, but also unserious … Democrats learned that they could vote for Hillary because she’s a woman, vote for Bernie Sanders to stop the government from putting potheads in jail, vote for O’Malley because he used a dozen Crest whitening strips on his teeth or vote for Lincoln Chafee because he’s a block of granite. They could vote for Jim Webb, but he’s disqualified because he can find Syria on a map. (Thieves, Liars and Idiots: The Two Hour Democratic Debate: A night the Democratic Party should be ashamed of)

Are any of these clowns really electable? Who knows?  After all, any country that installed the likes of Barack Obama twice should probably measure at least half its citizens for space in the nearest nuthouse.

Obama’s All Wet On Climate Change

Obama's War On The Weather

“When challenged by “60 Minutes” interviewer Steve Kroft about ceding leadership in the Middle East to Putin, Obama argued that leadership on climate change was more important than leadership to combat terrorism.” Breitbart

Schlindler TweetObama’s response to Steve Kroft was massively inane but totally predictable, given that some of the Radical-In-Chief’s best friends are unrepentant communist revolutionaries from the infamous ’60s terrorist group known ironically as “Weatherman.”  And since any individual of average imbecility knows that you can’t change the weather (or the mindset of your average radical), Obama’s battle against the elements must be seen for what it really is. It’s not the climate he wants to fundamentally transform — it’s Western young-obama-comixcivilization.  It’s the same nefarious anti-capitalist ideology he’s been pushing since he was a young Leninist in California.  To Statists like Obama, freedom’s just another word for doing what they say.

Obama as president has never allowed much dissent to creep into his discussions with aides about anything. This has led to failures all over the board in domestic and foreign policy and the appearance of the U.S. sleepwalking our way to disaster. It’s not going to get any better… (Foreign policy realists in the White House decry ‘weakness and indecision’)

In fact, all of Obama’s … uh, policies seem to be the result of late-night dorm room bull sessions  conducted jointly by hippie Marxist stoners, homosexual film students, and the high command of the Muslim Brotherhood.   Is it any wonder that the Russians are laughing all the way to Damascus?

Beans And Motherf**kers

That's Halal Folks

Obama Administration Bans All Pork Products From Prison Menus

“The government says it made the decision to do this because a survey showed that inmates do not like eating pork products.”

“I find it hard to believe that a survey would have found a majority of any population saying, ‘No thanks, I don’t want any bacon.’” — Dave Warner, National Pork Producers Council

As an ex-GI who once reluctantly consumed his fair share of the dish affectionately known as “Beans and Motherf**kers” (As defined by Urban Dictionary: A disgusting mix of Lima Beans and Ham, as made for the United States Military in the form of C-rations and MRE’s  [MRE = Meals Refused by Everyone] ), I really don’t give a rat’s ass what our current crop of jailhouse whiners don’t like.  Especially when I have a sneaky suspicion that the only cons complaining about the bill of fare are Black and other shades of Muslims — though if I thought they were P-38‘ing  rusty cans of B’s & M’s that were vacuum-sealed during World War II like I did for three years, I might be inclined concede their point.

Barack Obama, the Marxist Musulmán behind the curtain, is a guy who during two terms in office has yet to be spotted eating a pork chop, though he readily admitted to snacking on puppy dog as a hungry young Indonesian.  If he’s not an Islamist, then a pig’s ass ain’t pork, if you’ll pardon the expression.  Beans and Motherf**kers are too good for this clown, although as the de facto Commander-In-Chief, a goodly number of troops would probably applaud a move to strip B’s & M’s from their field cuisine.  And you wouldn’t have to be a Muslim to get behind that.

Old Wack Joe

Biden's Song

“Numerous sources are pointing to Vice President Joe Biden himself as the anonymous source who told the New York Times’s Maureen Dowd about Beau Biden’s dying wish that his father run for the presidency.” Newsbusters

“Biden had used his dead wife before as a campaign prop while lying about her death, but this was a whole new low. This was a manipulative narrative complete with Movie of the Week writing … Biden couldn’t have written it better himself. And it turned out that he had.” Daniel Greenfield

“Be careful what you wish for.” — Joe Biden

Joe Biden, owner of the mouth that launched a thousand gaffes, the comedic sidekick to our relentlessly dreary Marxist chief executive, has given new meaning to the trite phrase “over my dead body.”  As a jump start to a presidential campaign,  Doofus Joe’s retooling of the plot of the classic tearjerker Brian’s Song, was not a bad idea, except for the part where the vice president himself was unmasked as Maureen Dowd’s anonymous source.   Poor old Joe. He should have stuck to plagiarizing law reviews.

Obama: Ramadan-a Ding Dong

National Insecurity

“…divining Obama’s foreign policy should have been relatively easy given his background – a world seen through the eyes of someone whose father was a Muslim, as was his step-father, whose early education was in a Muslim madrassa, followed by mentoring from the known communist Frank Marshall Davis, associations with Columbia University’s Palestinian activist Edward Said and later, Harvard’s leftist Brazilian socialist Roberto Unger, later close association with admitted communist and Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers, then followed by 20 years of anti-American and anti- Semitic sermons by Reverend Jeremiah Wright …”(The Most Dangerous Man In the World)

While those of us who were actually paying attention to who and what the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was are not surprised that an unleashed second term has led to Obama bringing chaos and violence to the Middle East as well as Israel’s survival to the brink, we did not expect that he would do everything in his power to hand to Iran a nuclear weapon on a silver platter. But that is exactly what he is doing.”(Obama’s perfect storm to destroy Israel)

“There is no such thing as a moderate Islamist.” — Andrew McCarthy

“Obama is a neo-Leninist communist, and it is time we not only understand that, but call him that. The proof is undeniable.” Mychal Massie

“The more I know about people, the more I like dogs.” — Vladimir Putin

It’s a mad, mad world when a former colonel in the Soviet KGB is a more reliable participant in the fight against Islamic terror than the President of the United States.  Of course, when said President hosts Ramadan dinners and shouts praises to Muslims at every available opportunity, when the s0-called Commander-In-Chief routinely utters such inane remarks as “America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam,” one could be forgiven for wondering just whose side he’s really on.


It is not out of ignorance that President Obama and Secretary Kerry are denying the Islamic roots of the Islamic State jihadists …  The Obama administration is quite intentionally promoting the progressive illusion that “moderate Islamists” are the solution to the woes of the Middle East, and thus that working cooperatively with “moderate Islamists” is the solution to America’s security challenges. (The Muslim Brotherhood is the best Obama can do)

Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State. (Obama secretly backing Muslim Brotherhood)

But, as Iran specialist Clare Lopez of the Center for Security Policy points out, “The Muslim Brotherhood is a jihadist organization, from the day of its founding and remains so to this day.”

Gave NothingWhile Obama arms jihadists, Putin  goes after them: “We will chase terrorists everywhere. If in an airport, then in the airport. So if we find them in the toilet, excuse me, we’ll rub them out in the outhouse.  And that’s it, case closed.”

If Putin succeeds where Obama has failed, and the “caliphate” of the radical Islamists is exterminated, we will witness an occurrence rarer than the passing of Halley’s Comet: the Russian president will be more popular with Americans than their own.

No Rambos At Umpqua

Last Mission

If Barack Obama and the Democrats had their druthers, we once-proud Americans would all be like old John Rambo … disarmed, discombobulated, and needing a push from the government to get to the can.  When the bad moon’s rising, liberals huddle under their canvas and wait for the wolves. The rest of us lock and load.  Case in point: the latest massacre committed by a gun-wielding malcontent in a “gun-free” zone in a state in which the national bird should be the cuckoo and the state anthem “Kumbaya.”

The Oregon college where at least 10 people were killed in a shooting rampage Thursday had in recent months considered hiring an armed security guard — but ultimately decided against the proposal, the retired president said.

“We talked about that over the last year because we were concerned about safety on campus,” Joe Olson, who retired as president of Umpqua Community College at the end of June, told The New York Times. “The campus was split 50-50. We thought we were a very safe campus, and having armed security officers on campus might change the culture.”  (Umpqua Community College Considered Armed Guard, Dismissed Idea)

Well, nothing changes the academic culture more than a bullet to the brain, now does it?

“[The gunman] thought he could make a splash – and he did. Now Obama is using it to jump start gun crime. That doesn’t work here. It’s too bad they couldn’t get him as soon as he fired the first shot.” Anonymous Oregonian

Just Like The Old Soviet UnionPredictably, the smoke at Umpqua had not yet cleared before the Community-Organizer-In-Chief stepped to the bully pulpit in Washington, and began his latest anti-gun rant (during which he, of course, referred to himself 28 times in 12 minutes), and described the nation over which he is somehow unaccountably presiding as the most trigger-happy country in the known world.   But, as is the case with all things Obama, the truth lies elsewhere:

Boom, here we go: The Rampage Shooting Index. Taken from a now-defunct website, it assembled data from around the world to construct a per capita mass shootings index that controls for population differences … The U.S.’ index of 0.12 per 5,000,000 places it behind Norway (recall the Anders Breivik massacre), Finland, Slovakia, Israel, and Switzerland – at half the ratio. (IJ Review)

” I will politicize this,” Obama says.  As if he’s ever done anything else.  If there were any justice in the world, he’d be doing it in Norway.
