If someone is consistently wrong, what title do we give them? Do we call them a great mind? Do we listen to their counsel? If someone is consistently wrong on a subject when do we get around to calling them idiots and when do we stop listening to them?
Those are all good questions, that we will not get an answer to anytime soon.
Syria has popped up in the news again after a chilling massacre in Houla. Over 100 people were killed; many of them women and children and many of them were executed. The rebels blame the Syrian Regime. The Regime denies any knowledge of who perpetrated the massacre. Given their serious lack of credibility, no one believes the Regime.
Now the usual suspects are at work.
General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said there could be American military intervention. Mitt Romney is hamming Obama for not doing more. So is the chief idiot, John McCain. McCain called it a “shameful abdication of everything America believes in.”
John McCain is simply living proof of life after brain death.
Dr. Phil always likes to ask, “How’s that working out for you?”
Perhaps we should be asking how listening to the advice of the terminally stupid like John McCain is working out for us.
The usual suspects wanted us to support the uprising in Egypt. Mubarak was certainly no saint but he let the Coptic minority live mostly in peace and had no interest in a jihadist war against Israel.
Now the new government in Egypt may well be controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, will be anti-American, attack the Coptic minority and is now banging the war drums with Israel.
While Israel’s interests should never trump American interests, it is in America’s interest not to have a war in the Middle East.
In Tunisia, where the usual suspects said we should work against the established regime, we now have an Islamist regime.
In Libya, we became involved militarily, shooting off millions of dollars in munitions and losing an F-15 in the process. The crew was rescued and the Pentagon promised a press conference with the crew but that never materialized for reasons that have never been explained.
What was the result? Qaddafi had been mostly quiet, having given up his weapons of mass destruction program. Various Al-Qaeda related Islamist groups are now vying for power in post-Qaddafi Libya. Does anyone think that is an improvement? Most disturbingly, thousands of what the military refers to as MANPADs or shoulder fired surface to air missiles are missing.
Doesn’t that make you feel better every time you get on an airplane?
Every time we have intervened in the Middle East under Obama, the situation has become worse, not better.
There should be two criteria for any type of action we take in the Middle East. The first is that it is in America’s national interest and the second is that it first does no harm.
The Syrian rebels are made up of various groups including radical Islamists.
Bashar al-Assad is someone who should dangle from the end of a rope. But will replacing the Assad Regime do America any good? Syria, like Egypt before Mubarak’s fall, had no interest in starting a greater Middle East war with Israel.
If there is to be regime change in Syria, we need to make sure what ever the new regime may be it is friendly towards America.
What people like John McCain do not realize is they can make the situation worse and anytime McCain is involved, the situation usually gets much worse.
What is happening in the Middle East is not and has not been in the American interest, most people has missing the news over a year go, of a meeting between our land security, obama and the muslim brothers, two weeks after the meeting the riots start happening, nothing is just circumstantial, the normal every day people on those nations has no idea of what was going on, the entire thing was orchestrated for one simple reason. The total control of the brotherhood in this parts of the world.
Something people miss too, was the promise of obama to deliver Israel and to make the access of the USA more acceptable to them. If anyone has missing our political spectrum they better wake up, because the appointing of the brotherhood in important and powerful positions in this Nation is not for their quality of love to America but the open door to their intent to control our way of life. obama is dangers and only for this alone he should be remove from power, with the justice system to teach the world that no one in the USA is over the law, not by voting him out, one CAN'T vote a fraud out, must be prosecuted, we're complicit to the entire thing is we don't work to accomplish this before the elections, Sheriff Joe Arpio knows that, John Dummett Jr knows that, Orly Taiz knows that, Mario Apuzo and many patriots that are putting their lives in the line to make sure that he's expose before elections, if nothing else, we should all help on this.
The scope against this country on this Constitutional crisis is bigger than what people want to believe, for people is better to look the other way, thinking that elections are to fix anything, is not... as long that he's remove with out the Justice system, we are to suffer the consequences and from now on, we will be tramped on everything we have take dear in our heart, as the heritage and the very Constitution. The people must support those brave patriots and stop playing politics, the tea party has the responsibility to get into this, I know is comfortable, but even the tea party is play politics and is caving, if people is for the Constitution must fight for the Constitution, WE THE PEOPLE as preamble means, the Constitution will protect our rights as long we defend the Constitution, with out the people is not Constitution and with out the Constitution is not free people, it's that important.
So if we don't want to see what is happening, and we want to make things right, we can't just let obama go by voting him out, he MUST be prosecuted... them the problems in the middle east and those that are to come here, will be taking care, in do time.
Ok, so there are reports of Russian military units having arrived in their port in southern Syria, Tartus; they back al-Assad. The Iranians have publicly said (through the now erased slip of the tongue speech to a group in Iran) that they have military units in Syria; they back al-Assad. Things sure have gotten rotten in the middle east under our "all 57 states" "my muslim faith" liar-in-chief haven't they? Come to think of it, things have gotten rotten most everywhere else, too!
The loudest fools get the attention
Everywhere you look that's what you see
Our foreign policy and military works for the Muslim Brotherhood
USA is uniting Muslims under one tent
We should let them kill each other
It's true their women are victims
but they fight to preserve that status
Muslims are right here in our midst
But of course liberals say they are the tame ones
I know Judson about your dislike for McCain but your continued rants are seriously lowering your self right down there with MSNBC. He is entitled to his opinion as are you but to keep pushing your own agenda at this time is nauseating. I don't agree with him on lots of issues but McCain would never do anything to harm this country and he is certainly a hero for his service . There are so many other issues out there to bash that are tearing this country apart and I would hope you would seek a different direction. The issues in Syria are extremely important and at this time the lack of serious involvement by us has made the problem even more devastating.
John McCain co-authored a bill that all but repealed the First Amendment. Out of respect for the Members of Tea Party Nation, I do not say what I really think about him.
I am neither a sheep nor wolf...I pride my self as a Sheep Dog and guard all of you. I "get" it T..at 70 yrs old I most definitely get it.. and still say there is way more to blast about than to bash some one whose views are different than yours. Geezz go after all the idiots out there who really want to take us down and destroy this country...All of you don't have to "like " McCain or agree with him but you must respect him for the sacrifices he has made for this country. To do less is seriously"Un-American"
You are RIGHT ON with this blog and it needs to be said over and over. EVERY regime Obama has helped to topple in the Middle East has been replaced with something WORSE! It is the plan... to bring about an Islamic Caliphate.
We do NOT know who did the massacre in Syria! It surely could have been done by the rebels and blamed on the regime to create hostility and outrage to the regime. That is certainly a possibility and one that needs more investigation. Why is Syria suddenly an interest for America to intervene in, when Saddam Hussein tortured and murdered people every day, and according to liberals, that was NOT a place we should have been involved? He tried to wipe out the Kurds! If the liberals want involvement in this Syria thing, ask WHY!
Just remember Benedict Arnold was also a war hero.
It is one thing to dislike or disagree with someone on the basis of their beliefs or politics, but to call someone an idiot is folly and as extreme as those the Tea Party(s) were formed to eliminate. I can respect a person but not agree with them. Your postings have become more and more divisive even amongst the Tea Party. I am asking you to please drop the McCain bashing and stick to the issues at hand. If you don't like John McCain, work against him getting re-elected next election cycle... don't be a Chris Matthews and constantly berate the man because you don't like him. Maybe he is out of touch, but he IS a Patriot as are you and I. If you cannot stop with this non-sense, you will lose people like me who want nothing more than the return to greatness our Nation had enjoyed so long. We can make a difference, but not by becoming those we disagree with. It is one thing to use their tactics, but another to become them inn the process.
I don't like McCain and I don't respect him.
I will reply to all of you who have replied to me at one time. IF you continue to think it is okay to act like the Liberals, then we are all lost already. Choosing one person to denigrate in this way is unlike any type of Conservative I have ever been. Like many of you I have served my Country faithfully and have not forgotten MY OATH of service. I will respect ANY person who has served faithfully their Country no matter who they are. I am quite frankly disturbed to see my fellow Tea Party members sounding more like the hate mongers of the left more and more daily. We can stand by and for OUR beliefs without becoming like the extreme nut-jobs of the left. All of this divisiveness needs to stop. It is not us against them personally; it is us against their beliefs. We as a people need to try and change those that can be shown what it means to be who we are and where we are from. We cannot become them... the Liberal left. It is our duty to show the moderates and swing-liberals the right way. Berating them causes the wrong emotions... we need to invoke emotions to bring them to us, not scare them away. If you cannot or will not understand what I am trying to convey, then we are truly lost. Respecting one another's views without agreement is not a Political Correctness; it is respect.. Disrespecting one another (even John McCain for some of you) is not what we are supposed to be about. We are supposed to be working to end/defeat the Liberal/Progressive agenda; not throw stones at who we think is wrong. IF they are wrong, do not disparage them, vote them out of office. That is what we do... what I see happening is what Occupiers do. IF this is the path the Tea Party wishes to follow then the Liberals are right... it is already dead.
