Janet Napolitano: A Man-Caused Disaster

There's more to this woman than just good looks.  She has a knack for remaining clueless about national security.  Appointed by a clueless President, who made sure she followed in his footsteps, and returned us to a pre 9/11 mentality... I would say she has done a good job.  By implying that the War on Terror was no more (it's now called an 'Overseas Contingency Operation.'), not allowing the term Terrorist Attack (it's now a 'man-caused disaster') to be used, this administration has sufficiently de-balled our military and intelligence agencies in order to implement their vision.  The White House officially said "The U.S. is no longer engaged in a "war on terrorism." Neither is it fighting "jihadists" or in a "global war."  The only problem with this theory is that none of these geniuses told the terrorists, who continue to plot and try to carry out missions against us.

Secretary Napolitano said Sunday that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit airline flight Christmas Day demonstrated that “the system worked.”  She should have heeded the old adage about keeping silent and being thought a fool rather than opening her mouth and removing all doubt.

The truth is the terrorist failed to ignite the device properly, and a heroic passenger then jumped in to prevent more damage.  The "system" was the part that didn't work.  We are finding out there were all kinds of red flags... the most blatant?  The would-be bomber's father going to our Embassy and then to the CIA to warn them.  Why didn't the CIA react or share the warning?  Well that will be determined  soon, but what can you expect from an agency led by Leon Panneta, who like Napolitano has no experience in intelligence? 

Does this President and his administration want us to be attacked again?  Of course not!  The problem is that they are completely out of touch with the real world, and constantly underestimate the resolve of these Islamic Terrorists.  The President showed us just how out of touch he was only yesterday, when he said this was an "isolated incident."  We all know that's not true.  We know it was coordinated out of Yemen, and is part of an ongoing Al Queda network mission.  Our would-be bomber told us that yesterday, when he said hundreds will be following in his path.

And guess what?  Should anybody be talking about the fact that this mission, and more to come, may be masterminded by terrorists that we humanely let out of Gitmo?  Don't get me started!

 

"As I’ve watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low-key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of Sept. 11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war.

 

“He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core Al Qaeda-trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, ‘war on terror,’ we won’t be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe. Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency — social transformation — the restructuring of American society. President Obama’s first object and his highest responsibility must be to defend us against an enemy that knows we are at war."

Musings...

I just watched the Kennedy Center Awards, and the President and Mrs. Obama were seated next to the honorees.  They were charming, personable, and I realized I would probably enjoy hanging out with them.

I could probably like him even more if he was doing the job I thought he was qualified for and most suited to his talents: assistant professor at a small mid-western college, teaching his students about the inherent evils in the U.S. Constitution.

 

My New Year's Wish for 2010

 

Stick A Fork In Him - He's done

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is lucky he doesn't come up for reelection until 2012, because this guy who got 64% of the vote in his last election, would lose today 61%-30% to his Republican opponent.  Just 17% of Nebraskans support his Health Care vote.  The majority overwhelmingly are against this awful legislation, as they should be. 

With Nelson's 30% drop in the polls, I guess these Progressives are going to start learning that there's a price to pay for defying the will of the people, even if you think they're stupid and their opinions are irrelevant.

As far as Pelosi referring to any dissent as being perpetrated by kooks, racists, tea-baggers, and Nazis, she's going to find out that those she speaks of are actually the majority of Americans.  Virginia and New Jersey were just the beginning, as we take back this country one awful Democrat at a time.  Reid and Dodd will be gone next year too!

This guy gets it!

 

 

Al Franken-stein shows his Progressive colors

Elected to the Senate by Acorn and Progressives in Minnesota, who changed the rules from precinct to precinct in order to rob Coleman of votes, and then constantly "discovered" new ballots, with recounts often containing more ballots than voters in those districts,  this moronic Senator is feeling his Progressive oats now.  In keeping with the tactics in the above article, he (while presiding over the Senate) refused to allow Joe Lieberman an extra minute to finish his thoughts, a courtesy that is always extended to fellow Senators, but not this time.  No, this time it was punishment for Lieberman not going along with the pathetic Obamacare bill.  Even McCain said he had never seen anything like it.  Though minor in nature, it just shows the mentality of these vindictive ideologues.  Then their small-minded cohorts in the media demanded that the Celebutards in Hollywood try to get the removal of Lieberman's wife from her position at the Komen Cancer Foundation.  These leftists imply that Sen. Lieberman's political stances should determine his wife's professional role. Does it get more anti-woman than this?  Determined to attack the Senator for not rolling over in support of Obamacare, these Progressive fascists are questioning the integrity and honesty of his wife, an ardent advocate of breast cancer awareness and the search for a cure. These senseless and demeaning attacks only make the left look desperate.
