Why is this man smiling?

Amen Marko.
His remarks and behavior are disgusting and ineffective. He's probably mad this kerfuffle{in his mind} will shorten his California Palm Springs trip. He will probably phone it in and catch a few round of golf.

That would be soon to be retired interim Senator Walsh (D). This is the fruit of the lying incompetence in the WH, Montana has been fairly evenly divided until Zero got his freak on:

Republican Congressman Steve Daines has moved to an 18-point lead over interim Senator John Walsh in the U.S. Senate race in Montana.

Daines now picks up 53% up the vote to Walsh’s 35%, according to a new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Montana Voters. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate in the race, while nine percent (9%) are undecided.

The saud's are the main event within the sunni tribe.

Iran is also reacting. Maliki has always been their dog.

But the saud's have pushed irak back at least 1000 years. (Not that the country ever had indoor plumbing.) Except for Saddam.

The stupidity of killing Gaddafi and Saddam will keep us mired in the Mideast until, at least, the oil kingdom runs out of oil. Then? They'll be landlords. But like the Beverly Hills Hotel, they may be forced to notice that the locals don't like them very much.

Dear God, I'm listening to McCain on the intern killer's show absolutely schooling Meeka on what went down in Iraq. I hate McRINO with the heat of an exploding supernova but he is bang spot on with this.

GMax

Jonah Goldberg may raise a welt with this one:

I did raise an eyebrow when I heard him talk about how a big part of the problem is that Iraqi soldiers are shedding their uniforms and abandoning their posts. He seems to understand what a big problem that is for the Iraqi military. Perhaps someone will connect the dots for him and explain that Bowe Bergdahl’s comrades think it’s a problem when American troops do the same thing.

Amazing. Just heard a sound bite on radio news at the top opt the hour from the Prez saying that the Sunnis and the Shias have to learn how to live together.

That's it? That's the solution. That's the answer we have been waiting for from the smartest guy ever to be President? The Sunni's and the Shia's have to put aside their differences and live in peace because Obama said so?

Damn. He really did deserve that Nobel Peace Prize didn't he.

Barack-Campaigner and Fund-Raiser in chief. Why doesn't he just leave and do it full time for the DNC.

daddy: It boggles the mind when he says BS like this. The Iraq War is interrupting his playtime. They should know better by now. After ignoring them for 5 years today he gives them the finger.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Daddy-- cut Obummer some slack. He's speaking from his own personal example. He's a Salafist MB kinda guy, yet he gets along with the Shia Mullahs just fine, by making common cause with them to weaken America.

daddy

Maryrose and NK,

I'm almost afraid to start catch-up and see what else he's not-done this morning.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Daddy-- shocker, my suburban daughter is enjoying the wilds of Alaska. It's her digging day off today.

Rick B

Well, he did check the box next to Iraq in 2009, even before he checked the box next to Putin. The guys in the HLS faculty lounge nodded so he knew he'd done the right thing and could just set it aside.

This Credentialed Moronacracy really might not be so bad if it weren't for reality and the fact we're having to live through it.

daddy

Cool NK.

It's big baby moose time, so that mean's it's also big bear killing and eating baby moose time, so hope she has her eyes wide open:

Here's some current local headlines:

---Brown bear shot after breaking kitchen window screen, looking for pizza

---When it comes to urban bears, sometimes people are the problem

---A brown bear in black bear's clothing wanders Anchorage Hillside

---‘Abandoned’ animal? Don’t touch it, wildlife officials say

---Bear on Moose Kill Prompts Warning in Rabbit Creek Area

So far I haven't spotted any bears this year, but I have come upon tons of very fresh bear poop. On 90% of my walks these last 3 weeks I have come across at least 1 moose and usually more.

Where is Michelle Obama?

Why isn't she speaking out for Merriam - sentenced to death in Sudan? Black woman. Christian. Married to an American citizen. Oh wait - maybe because she IS Christian?

Why isn't she speaking out about the poor children piling up in warehouses? Oh wait - they are here illegally (good) and they are not obese (also good).

Never mind.


Doublindown2014

This is fantastic! With the election coming up Obama will show the American voter that he cares about their boys and won't waste any American resources on the smoking crater that will be the entire Middle East, and that not even the incineration of Israel or the looming Islamic invasion of Europe will cause him to swerve from his steadfast insistence on leading from behind. Meanwhile the Republicans will be left foolishly ranting about the projection of power, stability, responsibility and the domino theory! My only concern is that all of this foreign policy brilliance is keeping the glowing success of Obamacare off the front pages.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Daddy-- well in the camp are 14 students and 2 faculty, and 1 .22 rifle. That will work for the bears.... right?

NK(withnewsoftware)

@2:36-- that was brilliant snarky satire. OK.... who are you ....and what have you done with DD!!!!

Comanche Voter

Well if he plans to hit ISIS with "air strikes after I've finished thinking", the mission briefers better give the pilots shots of Basra. Because while Obozo is "thinking", ISIS is going to go through Baghdad like crap through a goose (to repeat an old Patton expression). And if he thinks just a bit longer, maybe the briefers will have to provide targets in Kuwait City.

Old Lurker

I would suggest the students feed the faculty to the bears first and see if that buys them time to run away.

daddy

Rick,

I like how apparently we're announcing that we won't even consider using any air power for a couple days, thereby telling the ISIS boys to quickly drive unhindered into Baghdad, and then get lost among the civilian population, where we won't be able to use air power.

I think I heard something like that on the radio as well.

Okay, catch-up begins.

BTW, Has General Colin Powell opened his fat yap yet, or is he still a reverse racist who is unable to breathe a word of criticism about our first Black Prez? IIRC, he was the guy, during the Kuwait War, who wanted us to quit bombing Saddam's troops on the Highway to Death where they were sitting ducks out in the open, so we did.

Comanche-- forget it ...it's ObummerTown.
Obummer will only act when the Mullahs send an SOS when ISIS besieges Qom.

A brown bear in black bear's clothing

Corbin was speedwalking with ski poles on the Besh Loop near Service High School on the Anchorage Hillside. This is something the 66-year-old former competitive athlete does to stay in shape...

"I heard something large in behind (the) brush at five yards, and then a very large black bear came crashing out with eyes fixed on me. Like car wrecks, things went into slow motion.

"I carry bear spray on my right hip and frequently practice drawing for muscle memory."

He did not draw it. He's unsure exactly why that is. Maybe there was some reaction to that initial thought of "black bear."...

"This one had a head that seemed like a brown," he said. "This was the biggest black bear I have ever met."

And that's because it wasn't a member of the species Ursus Americanus, the common black bear, but a member of the species Ursus arctos horribilis, a species so-named for the havoc it can wreak...

"I'm still kind of stunned. I have never seen a black with a head that BIG. It was either the biggest black ever, or a brown that is actually black."...

I must have surprised it sleeping right by the trail in the middle of the day. Big crash, then it came and stopped. Could have been all over just like that. (It) just exploded out of the brush."

So what did Corbin do?

Basically nothing.

"I just looked right at it as it came and kept walking," he said. "It charged up to within a little over an arm's length and then actually stopped. All the while I just kept moving at the same pace, purposely and looking as confident as I could right at it. Unbelievably, it stayed put as I continued on....

No Harm, no foul!

"And, no, I am not feeling cocky, just lucky. As they say in tiger country, 'You don't get away...they just let you get away.’

"the Sunnis and the Shias have to learn how to live together."

Why not suggest the same thing for the Arabs and Israelis, then take a well-deserved nap?

Eric in Boise

In Idaho, the recommendation is that those using a .22 in bear country file the front sight off of the barrel.

That way, it doesn't hurt as bad when the bear puts it where the sun don't shine.

Megyn Kelly will have one of the State people Tammy mentioned who called Bergdahl's brothers in arms liars (I think that would be Harf) on her show tonight. I don't think Harf's valley girl phrasing will help her out much.

My impression watching Shep is that Shep is angry at everybody except Obama.

Captain Hate

The lame deer (she's missing a hoof and part of a lower front leg; who knows how it happened) who frequents our back yard has a new fawn. The thing is tiny because it was born just recently (the doe was lying down in the back of the yard earlier in the week and she wouldn't leave the fawn alone unless she was looking for food) and I guess she'd separated herself from the herd she normally runs (stumbles) with. Mrs H suspected she was pregnant due to some trans-species sisterhood mindmeld, I guess.

If I get a picture of it I'll add it to Zuckerberg Data Mining, Inc.

derwill

So if there are 20,000 Americans currently in Iraq, most of them civilian contractors (I believe that was the number someone on JOM mentioned on a previous thread and I'm not going to bother doing my own research, because that is how I roll)--then you would think a president with any kind of humanity in him at all would be worried about the fact that these Americans are now seriously in harm's way. Even for his own narcissistic sake, Obama ought to be worried, because if videos of Americans getting their heads sawed off with dull swords show up on al Jezeera and on the internet, then it is going to cease being just an Iraqi problem and become HIS problem, PDQ, because his Rodney King schtick of why can't we all just get along juxtaposed against a row of beheaded Americans . . . well, I can't see even his diehard sycophants in the MSM pulling his ass out of that fire.

Hey, daddy, about 25 years ago on the family's Big Trip to Alaska we were in Denali Park on the Park Service bus tour. (They don't let cars in the park.) We had all piled out of the bus to take pictures of the mountain on a stunning clear day, when somebody noticed a bear high-tailing over the hill away from us. The park ranger had some speculation as to what could have sent the bear running as we loaded back on the bus. We were all on the bus but hadn't started moving, when a mama moose and newborn calf appeared from over the rise next to the road, and walked down the road next to the bus, then headed off down the hill on the other side of the road. The mama moose had a large gash on her back haunch. We connected the dots as to what the bear had been up to before running off. Even in the midst of childbirth a mama moose is a pretty formidable opponent.

I don't know, James D. They can spin Iraq falling apart into Bush's fault, but Obama is the president today, not Bush, which makes it his responsibility as CiC to get what Americans are there now out safely regardless--I think (hope) even the LIVs aren't so stupid that they can't see that. If he lets them die or get taken hostage while he "thinks", it's going to be all on him.

Thanks Gmax for the Montana update.

I'm not a big McConnell fan but obviously I don't want to lose that seat. I've never been worried about it although some Rs seem to be (or they want McConnell taken down). Anyway, just heard that Grimes is having Fauxcahontas come to KY and campaign with her. That has to be music to Mitch's ears since his narrative is that Grimes is way too liberal for the state (and she is).

Why doesn't Mexican Oatmeal Soup come and campaign for Wendy Davis, too? I'm sure that'll go over well in Texas.

Been thinking about the Austrian ATC radar "brownout".

Could be solar flares that is causing the problem. The SSR comms are in the UHF spectrum (1.030 GHz and 1.090 GHz uplink and downlink respectively) which is susceptible to that kind of interference.

Also wonder if the Austrian, German and Czech Republic radars are same supplier/vintage/model? Would not be surprised, as none of those markets may be big enough to support development of their own unique system.

If so, possible that they all have same defect. Software bug, hardware flaw, antenna systems susceptible to interference or any number of things.

However, the fact that the "brownouts" have occurred at different times certainly also points to possibility of some kind of local (maybe airborne) jamming. Putin's boys would likely have that kind of dirty trick up their sleeve. Practice? You would think solar activity would effect a widespread area and multiple systems at the same time.

I am proud of him and happy that he has gotten the deserved recognition. But I have so little confidence in the basic common sense of his CinC that I am finding myself wishing it were not happening.

Its a major slog and the washout rate is damn high so perhaps I have nothing to worry about...

Sort of apropos of derwil's 3:27, am I the only one who thinks that Hilary's statement that the release of the 5 Talibani jihadi generals is no big deal because they are threats to Pakistanis and Afghans but not to Americans is not only wrong and counter to Obama's own statements, but is callous and undiplomatic in the extreme? Whatever issues we have with the "leadership" of those countries, do we have no concern whatsoever for Pakistanis and Afghans? It's as if Dukakis responded to the Willie Horton stuff by saying--"Well he's no threat to us in MA, he's going to Virginia." One of the 100 smartest women in America. Right.

HHS is taking some lawmakers on a "tour" of the children's camps they've set up - but alas - no cameras allowed. The invitation had strict limits on what would and would not be allowed.

“Don’t talk to anyone, don’t record anything you might happen to see, but come visit us and we’ll give you a sanitized story with only the photos and accounts we want you to have,” said the staffer, who requested anonymity.
