Busy dang day for the People's Press Secretary, held another round of true answers to media questions. Obama managed to chime in right as I was finishing this up today wearing a tan suit and that was the upside of his sorry little chat with the lapdog media. He also managed to tell the world, including our enemies, that we have no strategy for ISIS. That shouldn't surprise any of you, but to say it out loud and in public is stunningly naive and foolish even for him. I do a bit of interpretive dance debacle control for him. Also, here is my chat with the White House Press. Continue reading

Peace is delivered from the victor to the vanquished. That is something our President needs to learn. We cannot take half steps against ISIL, they must be destroyed and then peace can be built on the smoldering embers. Task Force Black is part of the solution, but only part. The threat is beyond the point where a few pinpricks can deflate it. Obama wants to be the Ender of Wars, well you either win them or lose them and they are not ended until one of those happens. I vote for victory. Continue reading

Task Force Black is back and that is some excellent news. US Delta and SEAL team six operators are joining forces with the British SAS to take the fight to the enemy. Elite British and US special forces troops are forming a hunter killer unit called Task Force Black – its orders: “Smash the Islamic State.” The undercover warriors will aim to “cut the head off the snake” by hitting the command structure of the Islamist terror group responsible for a trail of atrocities across Iraq and Syria, reports the Sunday People. This is a reflagging of a similar group that stacked dead tangos like cordwood in Iraq back in the day. Let's hope they will be given a hunting license for anywhere the black flag flies. Initial talk from the Brits sounds hopeful. A source said: “We need to go into Syria and Iraq and kill as many IS members as we can. You can’t ­negotiate with these people. “This is not a war of choice. They are cash rich and have a plentiful ­supply of arms. If we don’t go after them, they will soon come after us.

The White House announces a new initiative. Since an ISIS rapper killed James Foley, President Obama is raising a Rappers Regiment to bring the payback beatdown with a back beat. Instead of getting shot at VMA parties, they can get shot at and shoot ISISscumbags. Or something like that. Continue reading

Our "leadership" in action. Obama says they are the terrorist JV, Sec def Hagel says they are the most sophisticated we have ever faced. Any wonder we have no strategy for these guys, or really anything. They don't even know what color the clue bag is. Fun music from Hayseed Dixie in the vid. Continue reading

Continuing its long tradition of leaking sensitive military information whenever he needs a political boost, Obama followed up his listless statement on Foley's slaughter with golf and a story about trying to rescue him. “The president authorized earlier this summer an operation to attempt the rescue of American citizens held by ISIL,” said one of two senior officials who provided information on the mission, using one of the acronyms that refer to the Islamic State. Good on 'em if they tried this, but as usual politics trumps strategy, security and common sense in releasing the info. This is pure ass-covering and a shameful misuse of the military. There are many reasons to keep covert operations covert and the fact that yo are getting your ass kicked in the media and opinion polls is not a reason to change that. If he wants to tell the families of the dead/hostages that is one thing but leaking this to the press so you can say " See I tried, I'm still the gutsy call guy" is complete unprofessional BS. Now ISIS knows just a bit, and maybe more than a bit, about our tactics and strategy. The next time our folks head into a hot LZ, the enemy will be more likely to be expecting them. The Pipehitters union thanks you for making the toughest job in the world even tougher. Hey maybe you can ride along the next time and shoot more terrorists in the eye, just like you did with bin Laden. Now a piece of credit where due. Obama has been criticized for knowing about threats to Foley and staying on vacation. It is worth noting that he authorized airstrikes against ISIS while fullay aware of the potential consequences to Foley and the others. That is a painful and gutsy call and those airstrikes helped retake the Mosul Dam. Continue reading

President Obama said mostly the right things about the horrific killing of James Foley by ISIS. But he couldn't seem to manage even a bit of outrage, or anger or much more than annoyance. You should have a little more passion when discussing the slaughter of a US citizen broadcast to the world and calling you out by name. I have some advice and training for him to at least fake it better. Continue reading

Beheading Americans live on video is not even a major step deeper into barbarism for ISIL. Thatr is what they do every day all day. They are one front in a global war against fanatical savages. Time for us to act like it. No pics of evil in the video, but a few harsh and profane words for them. Continue reading

All the powers that be are on vacation up in Martha's vineyard. But the world and the news keep spinning. So do I. We cover Hillary & Obama making up after she slammed his Syria/Iraq policy, somehow conveniently forgetting she was Secretarty of State during those times. Then we shift to Iraq itself and O's laser focused solution. Continue reading

Dude the idea is not to fight wars, but to prevent them. Deterrence should be all the rage with the progressive crowd, but they are so used to having others keep them safe that they have forgotten the sheepdogs exist. If we had stayed in a reasonable way after winning the war in Iraq, we could have influenced the govt. We left and the Iranians ran Maliki like the tool that he is. A little force judiciously applied goes a long way if they believe you will apply more as needed. Cordially, Jim

If we just kept 100 thousand troops in Iraq and 100 thousand more in Afghanistan for the next fifty years the bad guys would disappear." How many wars in Germany, Italy, Japan or Korea lately? Cordially, Jim

The President spent an hour last Friday chatting with kindred smarty pants Tom Friedman of the NY Times. They sagely nodded their way through the world's thorniest problems and how if everyone would just shut up, they could have things all sweetness and light in a few weeks. Sadly the oceans stubbornly refuse to recede, and the Earth has not healed, so we are stuck with the giant stinking mess that Obama has helped create. I actually watched the whole thing and feel I deserve a Nobel Prize for that alone. I had to limit the analysis of Obama's paralysis to mostly Iraq just to keep it short enough to watch. Enjoy.

I don't have very high expectations for the State Department, especially under F John Kerry. But I would like to think the official spokespeople would conduct themselves with something approaching decorum. They are our representatives to the rest of the world. Apparently Asst. Designated Liar Marie Harf didn't get the memo as she was playing "OMG I love you new look" on the official Twitter account she uses to deploy the hashtags that keep the world safe for democracy. She gets some advice about professionalism, and not playing fashionista in official communications, from Uncle J. Continue reading
