"but we are going to be engaging Russia to let them know that you can’t continue to double-down on a strategy that’s doomed to failure.”

I'm surprised President Merde Touch didn't add "such as they eperienced in Georgia, Crimea and the Donbass" for emphasis.

2018 in PyeongChang, South Korea, Miss Marple. It is unclear whether the NHL players are going to participate in the 2018 Olympics. So the US may be relying on our college yute (which worked out OK in 1960 and 1980).

Well, we already had President Hoover. Maybe he's President Dyson.

Funny that the Euros are closing their borders suddenly. I am getting great Schengenfreude out of it. Maybe Arnie can help out the Austrian government by doing some PSA's urging the illegals to visit some other country. "Hasta la Vista, Mohammed."

ALas, too late. I was hoping they were in 2016.

Well, time to think of something else to get people moving.

Laura Ingraham pointed out this morning that this strategy of getting just enough electoral votes (I think pioneered by Karl Rove) leaves one without a clear victory.

I personally think that a Reagan landslide is possible again but not only do you have to have people PO'd at the dems, you have to offer them an obvious better choice and explain why they wi,l be better off.

Using my IRS example, I would point out how these bureaucrats siphon off so much money from the federal budget, and how the pensions are way overboard compared to those of people in the private sector.

Show how it could be used to pay down the debt, show how the IRS is used to harass people, ask if we wouldn't be better off with a smaller, cheaper IRS.

This, of course, only works for those who pay taxes. For the ones who do not, and who are content to live as welfare clients, we will have to think of something else.

I simply don't get the Administration strategy. They do not want to commit US anything Isis, so why get overly bothered if Putin sends his cannon fodder instead? Yep, Putin is happy to spike the football against Obama, but Obama can ignore it. He's ignored worse...

Really, all Kerry is doing is advertising US lack of resolve. I guess that's how they do things in the France of Kerry's dreams.

ISIS vs Iran vs Assad vs Putin is the Iran Iraq was of the new milennium. It's a pity that someone actually might win this thing.

Good Morning.

Woke up to see images on FOX of the Germans and Hungarians placing concertina wire on the top of their border fences.

What are all the arguments again for why building a fence or a wall will not work and can not work?

---People will use ladders?
---Are you going to put crocodiles in the Danube River?
---People will come here there anyway?
---They're coming for Love?
---Walls won't keep people out?

How come I'm not seeing Geraldo's and Jorge' Ramos's on all the channel's, expelling why walls and fences won't work?

My NFL goat of the week is not Tom Coughlin for his play calling or Eli Manning for throwing an incompletion when kneeling down would have taken another 40 seconds off the clock, or even Steven Hauschka for the worst pooch kickoff in NFL history. My goat is Pete Carroll for running Marshawn Lynch on fourth and 1 with the Seahawks driving toward a game tying FG or game winning TD. Carroll clearly in that situation should have called for a slant pass. . . .

"Obama hates old people. The elderly poor are just the top of the iceberg."

Another example of a lost opportunity. Ads should be running explaining just how Obamacare is screwing the over 65 crowd. This is a huge voting block and these kind of pocketbook issues are exactly what is required to peel off Democrats. They may not care about abortion, but start ripping them off and they will get militant in a heartbeat.

"Judicial Watch said the revelation of the email gap casts doubt on whether Clinton told the truth when she declared under oath, “I have directed that all of my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or potentially or potentially were federal records be provided to the Department of State.”

So Iran gets $150 Billion. Russia is building up around Latakia, their base in the Med, and our intel analysts have risen up in revolt against their masters for twisting the facts into pretzels, specifically around the misrepresentation of our "war" with ISIS.

One of the driving factors for our leadership on the Iran deal was that the American people are sick of war. I find that not to be true when talking to people and reading relatively unbiased news.

The truth is that the cabal at the top finds any American use of force antithetical to their anti-American philosophy. To them, we are, as a people, never a force for good.

The waging of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was amazingly incompetent. We won the wars themselves but lost the peace.

But now the Leftists have flushed even the small gains made down the toilet. This has to be driven home with the American people. Iran, Ukraine, Syria, and Afghanistan have been unqualified disasters because of the Democrats and their Marxist fellow travelers.

Twas a link to this Aussie story:

Aussie Agricultural Minister Barnaby Joyce has dismissed Johnny Depp’s suggestion that he would fly down under and assault Mr Joyce, if actress wife Amber Heard is jailed over the illegal entry of the couple’s dogs into Australia in May.

The agriculture minister ordered Depp to remove his two Yorkshire terriers from Australia or face having them euthanized, after they were brought into the country while he was filming the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film in Queensland.

Obviously some countries like Pirates importing pets better than others.

Stalwart conservative soul that I am, even I will vote for Trump if it can be believed that he will follow through on all his major proclamations. Voting for Republicans to stand up to and defeat Obama's corrupt, twisted anti-American policies and edicts has been a thorough waste of my time and emotional well-being, as well as my hard-earned donations.

At least Trump can afford to lavishly fund his own campaign - I'm all tapped out.

General Jack Keane on FOX summarizes ISIS gains while why our Intel folks are alleging that the White House is lying to the American people.

Host Gretchen: Let's move on to this...The Pentagon IG is investigating complaints that Intel reports on the fight against ISIS were manipulated to be falsely optimistic. This reportedly resulted in inaccurate info reaching the highest Govt Officials, including President Obama. What do you make of it?

Keane: I think this is a very serious allegation because of the sources involved. These are Intelligence analyst who worked at Central Command Headquarters, who oversee the War. They work for the Major General who's in charge of Intelligence. And what they are alleging is that whole parts of their intelligence reports were taken out because they painted an adverse light on what was happening to ISIS.

So that our audience can understand, they look at this very comprehensively when they're thinking about ISIS.:

---ISIS Command and Control,
---their ability to conduct freedom of maneuver;
---their initiative, tactical and operational,
---how much territory they control,
---their ability to regenerate their forces, build resiliency,

All those kinds of things. And what they were concluding is that ISIS is pretty much in fairly decent shape given the fact that they've expanded into Syria, they own about the same amount of terrain in Iraq after a year, and they're expanding into seven other countries and they have a worldwide following. Those conclusions did not go over well, and some of those conclusions were changed is what the allegation is.
