    Oh good, I didn’t knock the sticky post off the top 🙂

    Meanwhile, our idiot-in-chief said this …..

    • Somebody says:

      Fuck him, where are the 3 year old orphans??? I assure you 99.999% of Americans would welcome 3 year old orphans, most would open their homes to them. These refugees are not 3 year old orphans or even women they are mostly young men. Young men that should stay and fight for their fucking country……..or perhaps they do intend to fight, just not in Syria.

    • Venus says:

      Leaders don’t lash out; children do.
      Where are the 3 year olds? All we’ve seen are men. Maybe if the WH was a little more transparent on this “refugee relocation” we’d know more, but don’t hold your breath waiting for the press to do its job.

    • Venus says:

      PS — last night a Muslim “widow” (or at least female) detonated a suicide vest in Paris killing herself and one innocent passer-by.

      Just FYI

      • DeniseVB says:

        I read she was running at the police to take them out, I think a police dog stopped her and was killed also. 😦 So many stories in the news feeds, with hopes will be sorted out while Obama’s on his Hate America tour.

    • leslie says:

      He is a race baiter. Plain and simple.
      I don’t like race baiters.
      Never have.
      Never will.

    • mcnorman says:

      He is sooooo very concerned about civilians you know. Kinda like this fella that they cut loose.

      Karakrah is a logistics and transportation operative for militant Islamists in the United States, according to high-level law enforcement sources. He moves people, weapons, explosives, drugs, money, and other materiel to terrorist cells operating in Chicago, Brooklyn, New York and Saddle Brook, New Jersey, among other locations across the United States. More than a decade ago Karakrah smuggled drugs and weapons for the Juarez drug cartel in Mexico. In July of 2014, he was on a supply run to a militant Islamist cell operating out of a basement in Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told Judicial Watch. Before moving to Chicago sometime in 2011, Karakrah lived in Anthony, New Mexico and a suburb of El Paso.

    …..and the other idiot of State. I can’t believe I voted for him in 2004 😦

    • Dora says:

      You did? Well, we had a tough choice that year. I voted for the other idiot.

      • cynic says:

        I never followed politics and was a dumb voter. Seriously. The only reason I didn’t vote for Kerry was, I couldn’t imagine Theresa Heinz Kerry as our 1st Lady!

    • votermom says:

      Denise, I did too. I was such a media fool.

    • leslie says:

      And I worked on his campaign – even though I didn’t care that much for him. It was John Edwards I wanted (I guess I wasn’t alone.) I’m embarrassed about both of those things. ;shame:

      • DeniseVB says:

        Yep, Edwards was the “Sarah” of 2004, nobody I knew voted for Kerry 🙂 I would have probably left the Dems then if it were Kerry/anyone else. And Bush won re-election because so many voted “against” Kerry. I sometimes wonder if that was an Edwards/Kerry ticket, the outcome may have been different.

    • 1539days says:

      I voted for the guy Hillary praised Saturday, W.

    • Venus says:

      “The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of islam.” ~ Obama at the UN Sept. 2012 — just days after the Benghazi 9/11 attack that left our Ambassador and 3 other Americans dead, which this administration blamed on a “slanderous” video.

      Kerry is part of this administration and he buys into its world view. This was a true Freudian slip.

  3. Dora says:

    I’m getting creeped out watching the news this morning. Hubby and I spent part of a day walking around in St. Denis on our recent trip to France. There is a beautiful cathedral there that we visited, after which we took a stroll though the town. When we saw this report on the news earlier, Tom reminded me that these terrorists were probably living inside those apartments when we were walking around the area enjoying ourselves. Thanks for the reminder dear. 😦

  5. Dora says:

    Conservative Treehouse has a great thread this morning. Years ago I was warning everyone who would listen that Obama is a muslim. They all treated me as if I’d lost my mind. People now are starting to put it together and the revelation is frightening.

    President Obama’s ISIS Strategy Is Indeed Working – It’s Working Exactly as Planned….

    If you re-purpose your frame of reference, and accept that President Obama is not invested in the defeat of ISIS, but rather sympathetic to the sentiments contained in their misunderstood expressions of Islam, every action taken by President Obama reconciles so neatly it cannot be mere happenstance.


  6. cynic says:

    Saw Eric Cantor on Morning Joe. He’s endorsing Bush. Why am I not surprised. Oh, and Adam Kinzinger was on as well. He’s running the Bush campaign here in IL. Saw Bob Dole endorsing him as well.

    If anyone has any doubts how important Bush is to the establishment, you need to look no further. What is their agenda that they are all backing him?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Heh, heh. Cantor was defeated in his PRIMARY by a tea party favorite, Dave Brat. Makes sense to me he’d be one of JEB!’s schmoopies. GOPe is going down in flames in 2016 and may be losing the House.

    • Somebody says:

      Their agenda? To keep the gravy train going, crony capitalism baby!! Mark my words if one of the outsiders gets the nomination they will all vote for Hillary, hell some of them might come out and endorse her. I’m sure if they do it will be “tough” for them, but they will come out for her because they’re so patriotic and want to “save” our country or something to that effect. All of the media talking heads will support Hillary, even the so called conservative ones. It’s all about protecting the status quo.

      This is terrible of me to say; but if heaven forbid an attack of some kind takes place in DC, I do hope K street goes down too………..putting myself in a corner for saying such things.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Trump is right and I don’t care lefty media is agreeing with him also. The GOP majority in both houses has done zip against Obama.

  9. DeniseVB says:

    I think Bradley Cooper should win every year, but hey, not bad……

  11. leslie says:

    I’m going to the Apple Store now to try to “fix”my iPad.
    Traffic Court went well. Was dismissed without any penalties. (As was right and just.)

  12. leslie says:

    From @breakingnews:

    Editor’s note: As of the evening of Friday, Nov. 13, France has been under a state of emergency. In the four nights following the attacks in Paris, police and national security forces conducted a total of 414 raids carried out in French territory. Sixty-four arrests were made, leading to 60 persons held in custody for questioning. Additionally, 75 weapons were seized, including 11 weapons of war, 33 rifles, and 31 handguns. There were also 44 drug seizures. Based on the latest reports 118 people are under house arrest. This information has been provided by France’s Interior Minister Cazeneuve, who notes that operations continue. – David

    But bronco wouldn’t even consider doing any of this. I ” wonder” why that is.

  13. DeniseVB says:

    It’s almost as though Hillary’s going after the elementary school demographic, but those kids are brighter than this ….

  14. cynic says:

    We have been told by Obama, his administration, and Democrats, that we spend MONTHS vetting those that will be coming here as refugees. Let me remind you all of the Underwear Bomber, Fruit-of-the-Boom guy, and the failures. We should be afraid of the incompetence:

    “Lee Hamilton, co-author of the 9/11 Commission report that issued recommendations for improving U.S. counterterrorism efforts, told ABC News the number of red flags missed by that system is unacceptable given the “very large sums” of money spent since 2001.
    “[Abdulmutallab] boarded a plane. He paid cash, that’s a danger signal,” Hamilton said. “He didn’t have any luggage, that’s another danger signal. His father had contacted the embassy and said my son has been radicalized, that’s a danger signal. ? What did not happen was these bits of information were not put in one place, analyzed and then acted upon.”

    Great post Denise. Thanks. 🙂

  16. DeniseVB says:

    For those who insist on staying FB friends with clueless liberals (like my whole family and RL friends) keep this link handy …. 😉


    It’s a good debunking of Steve Jobs being the son of a Syrian refugee and if we didn’t let him in we wouldn’t have Apple ! No, sperm daddy wasn’t a refugee, and yes, he legally immigrated and yes, Jobs parents gave him up for adoption at birth. He may have been born with the DNA to achieve greatness, but just have to wonder if Jobs adoptive parents helped him achieve that, as he gives full credit to.

  17. elliesmom says:

    Plastering Facebook with pictures of forlorn looking little Syrian refugee kids has the same effect on me as putting pictures up of shelter dogs who need homes. I’m really sorry the pups ended up in the shelter, but the last one I brought home bit me so I’m not running down to Buddy Dog to bring one home unless I know a lot about his previous home situation. And no, I’m not comparing the kids to dogs. Just comparing the effect the pics have on me. I love kids, and it breaks my heart how they get caught up in things beyond their control, but I long ago grew out of the notion I could save all of them. As a country we could save more of the kids if we helped make their home country safe for them.

    Quite a welcome. 😦

    Protesters Openly Calling For Gangsters To Kill Donald Trump Wednesday At DCU Rally In Worcester


    • elliesmom says:

      It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Worcester is a blue collar city. The rush hour traffic is around 7 am and 3 pm. There are several colleges in the city, but with the exception of Clark, the students are pretty conservative. None of the colleges there have ever been particularly politically active. It’s the second largest city in New England, but there’s no urban sprawl. You go from city to almost rural in a couple of miles. The cities and towns that lie in the 50 miles between Worcester and Boston are home to a lot of technology companies and the engineers who work there. Elizabeth Warren had a hard time attracting much of a crowd anywhere along the corridor until she appeared close in to Boston. I live in that corridor, and I’ve seen Trump bumper stickers already.

  19. votermom says:

    I’ve been so sleepy today.
    Refugees seek refuge.
    These guys are pillagers, not refugees.

  20. Dora says:

    Oh Great! 😦 😦

    • DeniseVB says:

      NYC has way too many soft targets, especially this time of year when the streets will be packed…and heavy coats and backpacks are not unusual. Plus DiBlasio’s NYPD is so neutered that they don’t dare profile or Stop and Search.

  21. mothy67 says:

    Question? Can you be served by the person taking you to court? Don’t you have to get in the mail or be served? Once served isn’t there more than two weeks given before court date?

    • Myiq2xu says:

      The rules are different in every state but generally “any person over the age of 18 who is not a party to the action” can serve papers.

      • mothy67 says:

        Thanks. He served it himself. More family court drama. He just files loses refiles. 500 an hour attorney fees. He represents himself. Were it not for the price it would make great comedy. I object he has yelled several times. It is absurd. Ambulances involved as his girlfriend has a panic attack.

    A great Trump rally. I loved it. You have to admit that no one gives a campaign speech like he does.

    In the meantime, poor Ben Carson can’t seem to do anything right lately. He will never live this down. 🙂

    Ben Carson’s campaign made a U.S. map and put a bunch of states in the wrong place


    • DeniseVB says:

      I listened to the live stream while dithering around on twitter and FB. The crowd was going crazy, but a different crazy from the cultish Obama rallys where he was promising some icky Utopia or something. (I think even Hillary called him on it in 2008, about stopping the oceans rising?)

      The crazy I heard was more of a “change it back, change it back”. 🙂

  25. DeniseVB says:

    This is a great video ‘splaining Immigration WITH GUMBALLs ! Kept my attention anyhow….

  26. mothy67 says:

    I went to dungeon. Two many links?
    16 Syrians caught with fake passports 3 in Haiti, 5 in Hondurus, 8 in Lerado.

  27. DeniseVB says:

    SEIU is shutting down major airports tonight ? Lousy working conditions? Hell, I could live in an airport. While looking for the link I stumbled across even more stupid….


    • lyn says:

      Would love to go back to those college days when the students who purged were bulimics.

    • DandyTIger says:

      The airline industry is in an interesting state these days. Loosing so many pilots to retirement, much less pilots coming out of the military, while crappy quality of life issues for new pilots. All the commercial pilots and instructors I know get offers daily. But they know how much it sucks for the first 5 or so years. Hadn’t heard about the airport workers themselves though. Given that it’s SEIU, not sure I believe it.

      • leslie says:

        It’s true that there is a one day strike at O’Hare today by the people who do perimeter security and check the trucks and other vehicles that drive onto the tarmac.

  28. lurker says:

    Aanyone here know how This refugee thing works? Any idea why Syrians who are already in Jordan, need to be brought here? Aren’t they already outside the war zone?http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3324739/Syrian-family-personally-welcomed-Connecticut-governor-Indiana-refused-accept-refugees.html
