Martin O’Malley blames climate change for the rise of ISIS?

“One of the things that preceded the failure of the nation-state of Syria, the rise of ISIS, was the effect of climate change and the mega-drought that affected that region, wiped out farmers, drove people to cities, created a humanitarian crisis [that] created the … conditions of extreme poverty that has led now to the rise of ISIL and this extreme violence,”

OK, so let’s go with this.  Let’s let him have his point.  Let’s say the mega-drought did create a humanitarian crisis and lead to violence and all that.  That’s simple logic after all.  When you have to live in cities, you want to cut off other people’s heads.  Happens all the time.  The PROBLEM I have with O’Malley merging every politically correct theory together as one is that this is what Syria has looked like since at LEAST the first century when Bedouin tribes started living there:

 

OK, how exactly did climate change make that worse?  Who do you suppose was farming there in the last couple of thousand years?  Given that ISIS has sprung to existence within the last decade, are we REALLY supposed to believe it was any better than this a decade ago?

Clue here, O’Malley is an idiot.

Climate change has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism.  Nada.  Islam has everything to do with Islamic terrorism.  Obama is terrified to admit that, O’Malley apparently is as well.  You can not blame everything that is wrong with the world on some generic guess that is global warming.  Most of the Middle East and North Africa have been deserts for tens of thousands of years.  Omar Shariff was prancing around those deserts at the ascent of movie making before O’Malley was even born.

Now, while you’re watching Omar Shariff in the desert, I’d love nothing more than to sit down with O’Malley during this movie and have him explain to me, in great detail, how a mega-drought in a desert would cause someone to cut people’s heads off while praising Allah.

And more importantly, does he really think, as President of the United States of America, that pissing in the desert will stop ISIS from killing non-Muslims?

We need a President that understands what the problem really is and addresses it in that manner.  Haughty political correctness is getting innocent people killed.

Trump joins Paul

On May 28, 2015, I predicted the red-hot Republican candidate Rand Paul was probably dead in the water for this campaign season.  I said that because Rand attacked the core of who he was expecting to vote for him.  It was inexplicable, it was off-the-cuff, and, it’s probably terminal.

Not quite two months later, with Rand Paul now virtually invisible, Donald Trump follows in his footsteps:

His attack on John McCain is unnecessary, inexplicable, off-the-cuff, and I guarantee you now, probably terminal.

Clue here, candidates, the Republican Party, much more so than the Democrat Party, prides itself on a strong military.  It’s one thing to attack the military decisions of politicians.  It’s completely another to attack the people who fought in the military.  The position they are running for is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.  Showing disrespect to those Armed Forces is no way to impress anyone in my opinion.  It’s a no-win strategy to me.  It’s lost my vote for sure.  Obama has destroyed our military morale world-wide.  Is the world a better place because of that?  The last thing we need is eight more years of this.  The last thing we need is a President who holds the military in contempt for eight more years.  We need a President who values the lives of all soldiers, not just the “winners” or discriminates against the “hawks”.

That’s not Rand Paul.

And apparently that’s not Donald Trump.

Rand Paul ends his presidential bid

I know from experience that politicians have people that work for them that have the most useless job on Earth, political advisers.  I say this partly from experience, mostly from observation.  Take for instance this week’s example:

I don’t think Rand’s political adviser told him it was a good idea, in the middle of a crowded Republican primary, to go on MSNBC and trash Republicans.
Just call that a hunch.

Another hunch:

See that sixth place position?  Kiss it goodbye forever.

 

A bird doesn’t sing……

This is precious.  And so illustrative how the government works.  And, why I think it’s important that we keep the the reins on the federal government.  Follow me here.

Maya Angelou’s new stamp features quote that wasn’t hers

She never wrote those words.  It’s attributed to Joan Walsh Anglund in her book, A Cup of Sun.  However, that’s not even what SHE wrote.  This quote, by the US Postal Service, IN QUOTATION MARKS, changes it to be gender neutral.

When informed that the attribution to Maya Angelou, on their forever stamp, wasn’t actually Maya Angelou, the USPS decided to go with the stamp anyway.

So, the USPS changed a quote, and attributed it to the wrong person, and decided that was OK.

<a href="http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/the-us-postal-service-got-their-maya-angelou-forever-stamp-wrong/question-4778344/" title="The US Postal Service got their Maya Angelou "Forever" stamp wrong">The US Postal Service got their Maya Angelou &#8220;Forever&#8221; stamp wrong</a>

Now, my opinion is, this is all kinds of wrong. They have effectively stolen Anglund’s product and “given” it to Angelou. And, they have committed plagiarism by altering Anglund’s original quote in the name of fascism. If an individual did any one of the three, they’d be in serious trouble, If an individual does it in the name of the federal government, there’s not a whole lot you can do about it.

All about Selma

This weekend marked the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma, Alabama.  Often referred to as “Bloody Sunday” due to the violence that occurred during the march on March 7, 1965.  Apparently the events were so dramatic, President Obama, then candidate Obama, felt compelled to tell the world how the events of March 7, 1965 were so inspirational, his bi-racial parents felt compelled to do the deed and plant the seed that would become baby Barack.  Who, would become the first African-American president of the United States.  Selma was THAT important of an event.

It’s such a moving and inspirational issue that Obama’s voice even changes when he spoke.

Just for the record, Obama was born August 4, 1961. He was nearly four years old when Bloody Sunday occurred.  He very obviously made that whole story up.

Hillary Clinton on Hillary Clinton secret emails

A lot of opinions have been tossed out there regarding the sudden revelation that Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, had a bunch of secret email addresses that she was hosting on a private email server in her home. She’s decided now it should all be swept under the rug by simply giving the emails she wants to give to the federal branch she wants to give them to. The ones that were deleted won’t count. The opinion that sticks out to me the most is this one given a few years before THIS revelation occurred.

Of course you say there’s a big difference. Of course there are. In the video she’s making the unsubstantiated claim there were secret emails. In her case, it’s documented. And, of course, although Bush was being blind-sided by her undocumented accusations, she condemned the practice while doing it.

Whatsayou Hillary supporters?

Marie Harf has ISIS all figured out

It’s not that they really WANT to run around beheading people and burning them alive, they just really want a good job is all.

( You thought I was joking, didn’t you? )

Marie Harf is a spokes person for the Obama State Department.

Just curious, exactly how good of a job would it have taken to have made Osama Bin Laden not want to kill as many United States’ citizens as he possibly could?

The First Presidential Election

On March 11, 2014, Sheila Jackson-Lee spoke of our enduring Constitution that has lasted over 400 years.

Yesterday marked the 225th anniversary of the passing of the First Electoral College electing it’s first President.  They used the guidelines set forth in the US Constitution Ms. Jackson-Lee is talking about, the very same one, that had been passed two years before.

She only missed it by a couple of hundred years, give or take a couple of decades.

Just to be clear, she got her college degree from Yale, in political science.  Yes, that’s right.  Political science.  To this day, her husband is employed by, drum roll please, the University of Houston.

Michael Moore thinks Chris Kyle was a coward

Confession time, I hate Michael Moore.  Seriously, I detest the guy.  In the last ten years all he’s done is whore for publicity regardless of who he offends doing it.  So, given the success of American Sniper, it should have surprised no one when he tossed this tweet out there:

My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse

First of all, he doesn’t name his uncle in World War II.  I doubt he had one that was killed by a sniper.  Really, I do.  The guy is truly that classless.  The only guy we do know for sure who got killed and can’t defend himself is the guy Moore is slamming here, Chris Kyle.

January 20, 2015 update: Dean Cain, who knew Chris Kyle, responds to Michael Moore, who obviously didn’t. Seth Rogen decided to jump into the fray as well, calling the movie “Nazi propaganda”. So, Dean responded to him as well.

@Sethrogen Seth...I like your films, but right now, I wanna kick your ass. Chris is an American Hero. Period. Go to war. Then we'll talk.

@MMFlint Disparage #ChrisKyle to my face. We'll see who is a coward. #Disrespect #Coward

I was on the fence whether I was going to watch The Interview or not. Seth made my decision for me. I’ll skip it.
