Obama towards Islamists: Read my lips: 'We don’t have a strategy yet…'

He's so smart...NOT! So much for foreign policy genius...x that one off the list too...
RedState: There are misspeaks…there are gaffes..there are cases of political foot-in-mouth disease, and then there are monumentally self-destructive comments like Obama uttered yesterday:

“We don’t have a strategy yet….” for dealing with ISIS

The WH scrambled to try and dismiss this as just a verbal gaffe…Obama paying an “aw shucks” homage to Harry Reid. Maybe they should invoke Joe Biden instead, because this really is a “big f***in’ deal.”

It’s so damaging because it reinforces what many already know, and many more are starting to understand..there is a dearth of ideas, an utter lack of competency inside the Obama administration, and it is likely to prove dangerous to America.

Obama To Spend Friday Frantically Trying To Develop A Strategy For ISIS… Just Kidding, He’s Attending 3 Fundraisers

ADDENDUM I: While Obama's still treating them like the JV team, didn't Chuck Hagel just say they were a greater terrorist threat than Al Qaeda?
Politico: The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is “beyond anything that we’ve seen” and poses a greater terrorism threat than Al Qaeda, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday.

“ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen,” Hagel said...

“They’re beyond just a terrorist group,” Hagel said. “They marry ideology, sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess, they are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything. And the only way you do that is take a cold, steely, hard look at it and get ready.”

But, there's no strategy...nothing to see, America.

ADDENDUM II: Don't guess there's a strategy for this either?
GatewayPundit: A warning bulletin for an imminent terror attack on the border was issued to federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources. Judicial Watch reported:
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED).

High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.
But no, just let'em all in, open borders, good for the economy or something, right?

ADDENDUM III: More from Rush, "There’s no way to misinterpret 'We don’t have a strategy.'"

A quisling GOP incumbent class won't save America in November either

Folks, this piggybacks off of Rush's point over the past few days, as well as common Levin discussions...from Rubio to Ryan to McConnell, with the likes of Rove and Romney in tow...these are the quislings supposed to take the GOP into victory in November? The Democrats undoubtedly have problems, particularly with their president and every part of this administration's policies...but pardon me if I have a hard time believing in these buffoons with an (R) beside their name either, when they've got no bold solutions to put our nation back on track, and we've observed their failures throughout the Obama tenure...

Laura Ingraham LOLs at Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan’s failed attempts to win over Hispanics
"So these people are following him! You can’t be open borders enough for these people, okay? There’s no such thing as being pro-amnesty enough! …

My gosh, Marco Rubio is one of their best friends! And this is how they’re treating Rubio!

Do you think when immigration reform gets through…do you think all these protesters who turned out yesterday– screaming at Rubio– that they’re suddenly going to be ‘Oh Marco Rubio, he’s our future’…same thing with Paul Ryan!"

Mark Levin: Paul Ryan "has become increasingly liberal"
"Paul Ryan’s written a new book. I want to thank him, he sent me a copy.

Even inscribed it, saying ‘we don’t disagree as much as you think’. I think we do!

Very nice man, but he’s become increasingly liberal. That’s right, I said it! And it’s true!"

"I am sick and tired of these Romney people pushing his name out there like America is clamoring for another Romney campaign! I sure as hell am not! …

He already demonstrated he doesn’t know how to run a campaign…it was a disaster!

Surrounds himself with a bunch of knuckleheads!"

LEVIN: 'You are in the midst of a constitutional crisis'

Levin sounds the alarm on what the media won't...'We are in a post-constitutional crisis,' with everything Obama and his administration have their collectivist hands dipped in...which is pretty much every aspect of our lives!
TRS: Mark Levin opened his show Wednesday with Meet the Press music playing in the background to get your attention, declaring that we are in a constitutional crisis and saying it is the news of the century that isn’t being reported. He proceeded to do the job the media refuses to do, explaining how the Constitution is under attack in a myriad of ways by the Obama administration.
"The Appointments Clause is under attack. The Commerce Clause is under attack. The First Amendment under attack, the Second Amendment under attack, the Fourth, the Fifth, the Ninth, the Tenth, the Fourteenth, and now the Treaty Clause. This is newsworthy. It's newsworthy when you have a President of the United States who's conducting himself as a despot, and that's what he's doing. And it is amazing to me that the so-called civil libertarians out there say not one damn thing. It is amazing to me that the phony, fraud liberals out there say not one damn thing. It is amazing to me that the phony, fraud journalists out there are standing there picking their noses, while the President of the United States is picking our Constitution to pieces! That's the news of the day, that's the news of the year, that's the news of the century!"
On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show: Our Constitution has all but been destroyed by President Obama and the Democrats and their socialist agenda. They have effectively taken out Congress so that Congress can't use the power of the purse to reign in the out of control Executive branch. Obama is about to unilaterally give amnesty to illegal immigrants even though the American people don't want it, and Congress isn't doing anything to stop him. And to add to it, the Republicans don't even realize that they've being taken advantage of, and the media refuses to say anything about the lawlessness of the President. Obama is trying to do the United Nation's work regarding global warming by pushing thru their agenda via the EPA and environmental bureaucracies with the ultimate goal of more control over the individual and the individual's property. Also, Mark asks how did Obama not know what was going on with the buildup of ISIS? This has been going on for many months and Obama didn't do anything to stop it.

The Obama agenda never where's the Republican alternative?

Consider this:
"Obama may go on vacation, ladies and gentlemen. The Obama agenda never, ever goes on vacation. The Obama agenda never, ever slows down. The Obama agenda doesn't even have very much in its way."

So, where the hell is the opposition? Like Rush, I don’t see anything representative of a Republican agenda either...
"Have you gotten the impression, have you, by virtue of paying attention to the news and watching television, reading the newspaper, whatever, have you seen any Republican messaging? Have you seen the chairman of the RNC or anybody, potential presidential candidate, I don't care, anybody define what the Republican Party stands for at this moment? Have you heard anybody say, "We have got to stop the spending"? Have you heard any Republicans say, "We've got to reduce the deficit," the national debt.

Have you heard any Republicans say, "We have got to continue to repeal Obamacare"? Have you heard any Republicans say, "We have got to secure the border and we have got to stop this wanton invasion of illegal alien children"? Have you heard any Republican stand up and say anything in opposition to what's going on now? Have you? I haven't. It's, to me, striking. And yet the Republicans, people talk about a wave election, how is that going to happen? Are they sitting there really believing that the only or the best thing to do is to shut up and don't become targets and let the Democrats commit harakiri and, come November, people will vote Republican automatically 'cause they're so fed up with the Democrats? Is that what the thinking is?

Is it they are so afraid of presenting any alternative agenda, because they're gonna be attacked as racist or criticizing Obama, which means racist, are they so PTSD'd that they are even wary of presenting an alternative, offering a contrast of spelling out their own agenda and what they stand for and what it will mean for the country if Republicans win the Senate? Have you seen anything that says how it's gonna change? Have you? "
I haven't.

"What's gonna change? How is it gonna be better? What are we gonna do? I don't see any of that. So the discussion that Larry Sabato brought up of a wave election and how he doesn't see any evidence of it, you may not even need polling data to explain why there is no talk of a wave election. Granted, you would need it, but you also don't see -- I don't -- any Republican agenda that tells voters why they should vote for Republicans, how it's gonna get better and improve. I don't see it."
Meanwhile, the Democratic disease rolls on. Why? Rush explains this, along with the expectations...
"I got a bunch of e-mails during the top-of-the-hour break about the point that I made that I haven’t seen any Republican Party messaging. ... Whatever it is, I don’t see any of that, and I got a bunch of e-mails from people, “Hey, Rush, that’s right, but I don’t see any from the Democrats, either.”

And I said, “Now, wait just a second.” And I paused, mentally, and I pondered that, and there may be some truth to that. I know what the Democrats do. They’re doing it. I know what they’re going to do if they keep winning because they’re doing it. The Democrats telegraph who they are every day, ideologically. Now, they may not be packaging it officially in campaign ads and this kind of thing, and maybe my superior knowledge and understanding of these people just makes me think that they do package themselves because I know them so well. But I had to stop and think about it, and they’re not doing so, either, really, other than the fact they’re in power and governing and are implementing what they believe.

I mean, that’s a hard, cold reality that, for some of us, is impossible to miss. But for the low-information crowd out there, is clueless. Now, the Democrats, the Democrat Party is a disease. The Democrat Party is poison. The Democrat Party could not win if they were up front about what they intend to do. But they never are. ...

They don't get specific and honest about their agenda, but they present one. And the Republicans aren't. And, to me, you know, I think it's a win-win. I happen to believe that more Americans live their lives as traditional Americans always have, in a conservative sense, not just political, but culturally, morally, I think it's why the country's still got a chance. But they need to be supported. People need to know that they're in the majority in the way they think. Right now too many people in the majority of thinking think that they're a dwindling minority, and I would think the Republican Party would want to do something about that."

"But then the Republican Party, when it comes to, let's say one issue, amnesty, they're all for it just like the Democrats are, and they've caught some hell by being public about that. More and more what's happening is that all of these consultants and the people that run the PACs and raise money and put together the TV ads, they seem to be the ones who are defining what a party is for, and what it stands for, and that can change from candidate to candidate."
And there's a, if not the, central problem with the Republican Party. So while the expectations gap points to a possible advantage in November, it seems to be solely based on the assumption that 'everybody's gonna be out voting against what's going on,' devoid of a conservative well as dependent on conservatives to once again tow the line for the party establishment, because as they'll say, 'what choice do you have?'

Call me a skeptic, but how's that worked out for the GOP over the past two major election cycles? You could even apply that earlier towards '06 during the end of Bush's presidency, when Republicans lost Congress...and the people. That's certainly not to devalue the results of 2010, but the establishment has been fighting us more fervently than even their supposed political opposition ever since.

I'd rather see a positive, vocal agenda for America and against the statism that's ensued during Obama's tenure, than to bear witness to a supposed opposition party sitting idly by, hoping for expectations.

This is why many of us feel like it's past time for something old in something new.

ADDENDUM: More from Rush on Thursday...
"I didn't intend to say that winning the election in November doesn't matter. I didn't intend to say that at all. I'm just saying that doesn't stop anything. The Republicans are still gonna be hated. The media's still gonna be who they are. But Obama's still gonna have his executive orders. He's still gonna be able to do what he's gonna do, and my point, the only thing I'm saying is if there's no articulated opposition -- let me not even put it that way. I don't even want to address it that way. At some point, folks, there is going to have to be some articulated, upbeat, positive, inspiring, agenda-based opposition to this.

We just can't triumph shutting up. We cannot triumph. What kind of position does it say we're in, if our best odds are to not tell anybody what we think? That is succumbing and falling victim to yet another liberal Democrat media trick, which is, "They're gonna elect you. You're gonna win the election in November, but you're so hated that you better not open your mouths or they're gonna really hate you. You know the Hispanics hate you, and you know women hate you, War on Women, and you know that moderates and independents hate you."

We get to the point we're taking advice from Chuck Schumer (imitating Schumer), "If you guys want to win the presidency again, you better support amnesty." What the hell is that? There is an army of American people waiting to be used, waiting to be mobilized, waiting to be put into some kind of political motion. We have not lost the majority of this country. If we had, there wouldn't be any talk of the Democrats losing as big as they're gonna lose in November, if we had lost the country. We've not lost the country.

So one of two things: Either the Republicans have been tricked into shutting up and not telling anybody who they are and what they think. Or, the Republicans simply are comfortable with the way things are going and just want their turn at running the show, but they're not really interested in any kind of political fight. And I think with this current crop, I think there's probably a lot of validity to that."
"I firmly believe, passionately so, that there are huge victories out there to be had. Not easy, but they're not going to be had with a strategy of silence. ...

See, I don't really think it would take much, because there's already a pent-up -- the Tea Party illustrates this -- a pent-up, ready-to-explode majority political movement out there, fed up and angry and ready to show everybody what the real America is. That it's not whatever is on TMZ. It's not whatever's on Comedy Central. It's not whatever's on CNN or ABC. You're dying, you're itching for this to be known. There just isn't any elected political leadership representing what you believe. That's all it is. That's a big "all it is." And if somebody surfaces that's able to marshal all of that pent-up demand, support, energy, what have you, then Katie bar the door. And that's why I'm optimistic. And I'm not exaggerating a bit."

Levin on immigration lawlessness and the mutation of government, the economy and the culture

Great monologue with the Great One yesterday discussing America's mutation with DC at the forefront of deteriorating factors, like our current immigration lawlessness for example...
On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show: Mark talks about the changing landscape of the country and society and not for the better. He discusses Arthur Schlesinger Jr.'s views on assimilation and explains that our culture is mutating and being broken into class, racial and ethnic groups. The division and those coming here not wanting to assimilate into American culture are only hurting the country as the entitlement system will continue to cost more and American values and traditions become lost. We shouldn't change American society at the expense of national integration.

Immigration enforcement: If only we were more like...Mexico?

Never thought I'd utter that phrase, but in regards to immigration enforcement, yeah, perhaps we should take a tip south of the border...
BuzzFeed: Mexican officials have deported more than 13,000 of the 14,000 undocumented, unaccompanied minors who have been caught at Mexico’s southern border, a rate significantly higher than in the United States, according to government sources familiar with the situation.

Additionally, Mexican authorities have deported more than 64,000 of the estimated 69,000 adults that have been detained along their southern border this year.

Those numbers stand in stark contrast to the deportation of minor immigrants from the United States: None of the more than 60,000 Central American minors detained this year have been deported.
No due process. That's reserved for citizens. Just catch and deport. Not a Mexico.

Levin explains how Democrats promote racism to distract blacks from what they're really doing to them

Proper context. Levin exemplifies what's happened in Ferguson, MO to show how poorly Democrats are doing under the Obama administration and how Democrats use racism to hide it.

After going through a number of statistics, including a jump in black teen unemployment, on top of the lowest recorded black labor force participation rate EVER, both under this President, then addressing what's worked to combat these stats, Levin emphasizes:
"So the answer is, free-market capitalism, conservative traditional politicians. And one of the big problems is the Democrat Party. One of the reasons why the Democrat Party today and its mouthpieces, Sharpton among others, took over that Michael Brown because they don't want the American people, specifically they don't want minorities, and particularly they don't want African-Americans in this country to know what they're doing to them and what they've done to them with big, centralized government, destroying their neighborhoods, destroying their families, destroying their local school systems, destroying their communities. That's what has happened! And so, we get this orchestrated effort from the Department of Injustice and Eric Holder, from the Oval Office and Barack Milhous Obama, and the most despicable mouthpieces, like Al Sharpton, distracting the American people and the African-American community from what's really, really punishing them, which is liberalism, which is the Democrats."

In other words, it's easier for the powers-that-be to drag everyone down than to fess up to their failures, particularly those for the people.

RUSH: 'The one man, chosen by destiny to take us all to utopia, can’t get himself off the damn golf course!'

Rush addresses the panicked Drive-Bys, who invested so many lofty goals in Obama being the One to take us to utopia, but now continue to rapidly lose faith in Zero, with the latest fizzle resulting from the halfhearted statement about the beheading of 'Jim' Foley, then immediately dashing back to the golf course...
"Alas, ladies and gentlemen, the reality has set in. The dream remains aloof. The dream remains illusory. It's nothing more than a far off impossible to reach once-again beautiful place. The one man, better qualified, more able, chosen by history and destiny, to take us all to this wonderful utopia can't get himself off the damn golf course!"

"Here's their guy, and what's he doing? Why, he can't even FAKE being interested in the job. He can't even fake caring about it. He can't wait to get himself back on the golf course? So now, the dream is falling apart, and they're beside themselves, folks. He's let them down."
ADDENDUM: Rush reassures those same Drive-Bys (New York Times, MSNBC, etc.) that even from the golf course, Obama can continue to destroy America...
"Let me just reassure you, a President does not have to be fully immersed in policy, does not have to be fully engaged everyday to destroy things. Obama can continue to destroy from the golf course. You can do that as a part-time president. ... You may be able to be even more destructive if people think you've checked out and don't care."
...pointing to the open southern border and Obamacare as just a few instances.

And cautioning the Left's panic, Rush says, "Your guy doesn't have to be in the Oval Office to continue to destroy what he thinks is illegitimate about the country."

The 'JV Team', Obama's vacation, and the fate of activist journalism

IS, formerly known as ISIL, formerly known as ISIS -- and known by Obama as the 'JV team' -- this SCUM organization that's running amuck throughout Syria and Iraq have now beheaded an American reporter, with another likely awaiting the same fate.

"So the JV team has beheaded an American reporter, a photojournalist, actually, James Foley, beheaded on videotape. Mr. Snerdley said that he looked at it. I did not. I haven’t. I saw Daniel Pearl, the video of that. I didn’t go look at this. They’re threatening to behead yet another American journalist, the JV team. Obama called ISIS the JV team. Yeah, within the past couple of weeks or something. He found out about it on the way back to vacation on Martha’s Vineyard."
Obama finds time to return to DC when a cop shoots not-so-gentle giant Michael Brown, but heads back to finish his vacation in Martha's Vineyard after ISIS beheads 'Jim' Foley? That doesn't pass the smell test. But hey, he gave it five minutes of his time. Isn't that asking enough of Dear Leader, America?

WXYZ: Obama spoke Wednesday from Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, where he's vacationing with his family, a day after the militants released a video showing the American journalist being beheaded.
Off to the links! Little in the way of ignoring Obama's callousness. But well beyond that, there's absolutely no doubt that this terrorist group's actions are pure evil with the torture and killing of innocent men, women and children...and now an American photojournalist. I just can't help but also question the motives of "a new breed of activists calling themselves journalists," as Daniel Greenfield refers to in a FrontPageMag piece. Those who go looking to get on the right side of the wrong people, perhaps expecting some profound truth through all the violence, aiming at an agenda and after the big scoop. But in a lethal mixture somewhere between invincibility and foolishness, what's received instead is the horrific outcome that came to pass.

Word of advice to activist journalists: You can't side with Islamists...these equal-opportunity killers murder their own even more frequently than other religions!

Chris McDaniel vs.Thad Cochran court date set (UPDATE)

Here's one to watch on Wednesday...

Two Wednesday's ago, Mississippi's Republican Party refused to hear Chris McDaniel's challenge to overturn the phony results of the June 24th GOP runoff. Instead, the party said McDaniel would do better taking his challenge to court. Well, it looks like that day has finally come after far too much delay (purposefully, no doubt)...
MSNewsNow: Special Judge Hollis McGehee has scheduled a status conference and hearing for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20, in the Circuit Court Courtroom of the Jones County Courthouse in Laurel in the matter of Chris McDaniel v. Thad Cochran. A scheduling order for further proceedings is expected to be set at that time.

The case is styled Chris McDaniel v. Thad Cochran, cause number 2014-76-CV8, filed in the Circuit Court of Jones County, Second Judicial District. Camera Coverage Notices should be directed to Court Administrator Rachel Stanley, fax number 601-428-3189, and Circuit Clerk Bart Gavin, fax number 601-399-4774.

McDaniel expressed his thoughts on the court case to reporters at WLBT, claiming this was more than an election.

"This is bigger than me. It's not about a race anymore. It's not about a campaign or candidacy. It's about making sure that this type of activity can never happen again," said Chris McDaniel.
The lead-up to this day came last Thursday...
FoxNews: A tea party-backed candidate asked a Mississippi court on Thursday to declare him the winner of the June 24 Republican runoff against incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran or order a new election.

State Sen. Chris McDaniel sued Thursday in state court in his own home of Jones County. The Mississippi Supreme Court will appoint a special judge to handle the case.

Certified results of the June 24 runoff show Cochran defeated McDaniel by 7,667 votes. But McDaniel says his campaign found thousands of irregularities, including about 3,500 people who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary and June 24 runoff. Mississippi voters don't register by party, but such crossover voting is prohibited.

McDaniel campaign representatives spent weeks examining ballot boxes and other voting records. McDaniel said they found about 9,500 "irregular" votes and 2,275 "improperly cast" absentee ballots.

McDaniel began his challenge with a complaint to the Mississippi Republican Party executive committee on Aug. 4, asking the group to declare him the winner over Cochran.

State GOP chairman Joe Nosef said Aug. 6 that the committee would not consider the challenge because it did not have time to thoroughly examine the information McDaniel provided about alleged voting irregularities. Thursday marked the deadline to file a lawsuit challenging his loss.

State law says the general-election sample ballot must be given to local election officials by Sept. 10, which is 55 days before the Nov. 4 general election. While a court could order a new primary even after the general election, McDaniel campaign attorney Mitch Tyner has said he wants the dispute over the primary resolved in time to keep the general election on track.
Naaa, that don't sound rigged at all, Mr. Nosef! These establishment cronies are obviously trying to run the clock out...and they might just do it with the way they've dragged it out thus far.

From dirty Democrats in Texas to repulsive RINOs in Mississippi, enough is DAMN ENOUGH! One way or another, Cochran mustn't prevail, and the establishment must be made an example of. It's a matter of principle at this point, and that's what McDaniel is after so that this never happens again in Mississippi.

UPDATE: Looks like the judge wants the trial sooner than later, and McDaniel's legal team is raring to go!
MSNewsNow: Special appointed Judge Hollis McGehee said he will file a scheduling order for the Chris McDaniel vs. Thad Cochran trial by the end of this week.

The half hour conference hearing convened Wednesday morning in Jones County Circuit Court. McGehee said he expects the trial to begin no later than September 22, which is an earlier date than expected due to this being an unprecedented trial.

McGehee will send notices to 82 county clerks to preserve any election materials from the June 3 and 24 Republican primary elections, per the request of McDaniel's lawyer Mitch Tyner.

Any motions filed will be heard next Thursday, August 28 at 9:30 a.m. in Jones County Circuit Court. The Cochran team is expected to file a motion to dismiss the case, and the court said a response will be given by Tuesday, August 26.

Perry prevails despite phony indictment (UPDATE)

"The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor,
But through knowledge the righteous will be delivered." ~ Proverbs 11:9

"This is what they do..." ~ Tom DeLay to Rick Perry
No doubt by now, you've heard the news, likely with little detail outside the headline: Texas Gov. Perry indicted!

But for what? Oh, nothing criminal, like Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton or any assortment of other Democratic miscreants. No, he simply performed a veto action as governor that Democrats didn't like, folks. Tis the game that Democrats play.

As soon as news of Perry's indictment hit Friday afternoon, Levin went NUCLEAR...

On Friday's Mark Levin Show: Mark discusses the breaking news regarding an indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry. Mark calls this a witch hunt, a set up and bogus charges against him. Mark says that Perry didn't gain anything here - neither politically nor financially, and he publicly announced what he was doing. Mark says that once again we have a rogue prosecutor who is trying to attack Perry and will have to put him on the defensive even when he didn't do anything wrong. If you want to talk about abuse of power - what about everything President Obama has done? Where's the investigations into him on the IRS, Obamacare and his unilateral Executive Orders and decisions? Also, Mark talks about Nancy Pelosi and the shady business dealings she is doing to benefit her husband, which also should be investigated; she should be called to answer questions about why she is doing certain deals regarding the light rail system she is seeking...
It's of course different for a Democrat. You know.

Then Rush followed suit on Monday pointing out the Democrat Party's ongoing effort to criminalize political differences or opposition...

...which leads to the reality of the Left's goal to delegitimize...
"I don’t care how far gone we are with low-information voters, they are never gonna support an indicted Republican. They’ll support indicted Democrats left and right. So it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter the outcome here. You want to talk about a smear? This is a smear. This is character assassination."

And the media glee is blatantly obvious here, but imagine the hypocritical outrage if the shoe were on the other foot!
"Well, you can bet if the Republicans ever tried something like this to indict a Democrat governor for exercising a veto, I shudder to think what the news would look like that day. I don’t think you could bottle the rage. I don’t think you could keep it contained on TV. I think your TV would be smoking. Your TV might catch fire. The rage of commentators would be so uncontrollable. But when this happened, why, this is a smart, smart move, ’cause they got Perry when he wasn’t looking.

Here’s Perry, he’s really feeling his oats. He’s thinking he’s scoring some major points, and he’s also helping the state. He’s taking on Obama and the left on this illegal immigration business. He’s doing his best to represent not only the people of Texas, but he’s representing a majority of Americans. He’s feeling really good and he’s got a lot of media attention, and he’s on a comeback trail from his previous presidential campaign, where he didn’t shine so well, according to some. But now he’s putting it all together, he’s coming back for a new run, and out of the blue comes this. Governor of Texas indicted."

Gov. Perry's taking everything in stride, though. Still managing to tick off Democrats, even with a handsome mugshot! LegalInsurrection even asks if this is the mugshot that launches a presidential campaign?
FreeBeacon: Gov. Rick Perry (R., Tex.) drew a sharp contrast against President Obama this afternoon. As Obama scurried away from Washington to resume his Martha’s Vineyard vacation, Perry voiced his rousing defense before strutting inside a Texas courthouse for his booking for a grand jury indictment.

Perry was defiant, echoing comments Sunday that the charges are nothing more than a political attack and that he would again defund the anti-corruption unit that earned him his mugshot.

RICK PERRY: I’m here today because I believe in the rule of law. And I'm here today because I believe I did the right thing. I’m going to enter this courthouse with my head held high, knowing the actions that I took were not only lawful and legal, but right. And if I had to do so, I would veto funding for the public integrity unit again. You think any governor, Democrat or Republican, would expect this important unit with jurisdiction over state officials, be led by someone who lives up to the high standard of conduct and personal integrity. And this issue is far bigger than me. It is about the rule of law, it's about the constitution that allows not just a governor but every citizen to speak their mind free of political interference or legal intimidation. This indictment is nothing short of an attack on the constitutional powers of the office of governor. There are important fundamental issues at stake, and I will not allow this attack on our system of government to stand. I’m going to fight this injustice with every fiber of my being, and we will prevail! And we’ll prevail because we’re standing for the rule of law. [cheers and applause]
This is the look of a man who just won his news cycle.

Erick Erickson boils this all down for us rather nicely...
RedState: The drunk in charge of the Travis County District Attorney’s Office wants to settle a political grudge with a criminal indictment. It is sad that this has gone so far. It is sad that Rick Perry had to suffer the indignity of a mug shot as Democrats try to fundraise off it.

But I’ll take Perry’s mugshot over Rosemary Lehmberg’s any day of the week. And Perry will make more money off this than the Democrats ever will. Frankly, Republicans should be thanking Rosemary “Vodka” Lehmberg for this opportunity to highlight just what contempt progressives have for the democratic process.

And should anyone ever put handcuffs in a glass of vodka, be sure to name that drink the Lehmberg.

Honestly, I didn't want Perry to run for President again, no more so than another Romney run or any of the other candidates over the past two failed Republican presidential races (especially the Romney and McCain's of the cast). It's time for some new blood...preferably constitutional conservative, through and through!

As it stands, though, this is gearing up to be strike two in Texas for leftists. But this criminalization of political opposition to Democratic statism, anywhere, along with the incessant lib media cheerleading, is something that cannot continue to stand...particularly when the double-standard is so flagrant...

UPDATE: Dammit! Perry does it every time! Yeah, on this particular account, there's nothing to it. BUT...every time you think the guy is gonna take a conservative stand, he goes running back to the throes of the Establishment!
Breitbart: Texas Governor Rick Perry has reportedly aligned himself with two of the most infamous Republican establishment operatives known for trashing conservatives.

Perry is working with Henry Barbour, whom conservatives want the Republican National Committee to censure for his group's smearing of conservatives in the Mississippi Senate runoff, and Steve Schmidt, who has elevated his profile by maligning conservatives, especially former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Perry should be aware of scorpions like Messrs. Barbour and Schmidt, especially if he has dirty laundry. And even if he doesn't, he should be no less worried, because those like Schmidt have proven that they may just make things up if things sour.
And for another WTH moment, Perry's also hired top Democratic attorney, Mark Fabiani, to assist in his defense against corruption charges. Fabiani is best known for helping Al Gore during the 2000 Florida recount. WTH with all the establishment hitmen, Rick?!

Sights on 2016: Media, Hillary distance from Obama

This is no horsesh*t! Throughout the week, Rush has made mention of the Drive-By Media's transition from Obama to Hillary in anticipation for the next Democratic President in 2016...
"Ladies and gentlemen, you may have noticed it already. If not, I think it's safe to say that the worm has turned in Washington. I think behind the scenes a formal decision has been made on the part of the media, and that is to focus on their treatment of Hillary while casting aside Obama. Obama is over. He's yesterday's news. There's nothing positive to report. It's time to build up Hillary"
"All these journalists know their credibility has been thrown aside, but it's been worth it to defend and prop up Obama. But now it's time for the next Democrat to get elected, so this time throw Obama overboard and gain credibility in that process, so that whenever you say whatever you say about Hillary, it has credibility. So NBC, I think, is gonna tee up 2016 as the Buyer's Remorse Campaign. It's gonna go something like this: "Oh, yeah, sure. We all got swept up in the historic Obama excitement.

We all got caught up in that. We all got caught up in hope and change. We all got caught up in the historical aspect of the first black president. We all got caught up in this blank canvas, that we could make anything of him we wanted him to be. We got caught up in all of that. But the smart, savvy experienced Democrats knew in 2008 that smart, savvy, experienced Hillary was really the better candidate. This is what's gonna be said now, mark my words.

See if I'm right. Remember this. And as you go forward and listen to NBC News and ABC, CBS, all the rest of them, I think what you're gonna be hearing, and it's just to position Hillary, "Oh, yeah, we all got caught up in 2008 and Obama this and Obama that, but remember Hillary came close. She was great and she was the better candidate." They're gonna do their retrospectives, their deep analysis with their analysts on camera stroking their chins, lost in deep thought.

And they will conclude in a very erudite and intellectual fashion, that, yes, Hillary really was the better candidate back 2008. We all got caught up in this excitement, and who could blame us. After all, everybody did. The first black president, it certainly was historic, but let's face it: Hillary was always the better candidate. And let's not make this mistake again, David. Let's not make this mistake again, Chuck. In fact, let's correct that mistake by nominating her this time. This time let's get it right. ...

See, the thing is, Hillary was in Barack's back pocket, but they are gonna have to make it look like Hillary was never really on board. She was just being loyal, but she knew that there were mistakes being made, but he helped her retire her campaign debt. He didn't have to help her out, and he didn't have to put her in his administration. And of course there's the subtext with Bill and the racial stuff, so there's a lot of stuff, but now, now Hillary is the one.

But they'll ignore all these things. They'll do their best to ignore all the similarities -- and there are many -- between Hillary and Obama. And they'll take shots at O when it will help her. ...

I want you to be able to understand it when you watch the news elsewhere, what it means and why it is being done. Benghazi was her and Obama! This effort to say that she had nothing to do with Obama foreign policy is BS. Once more they're trying to make up a bunch of stuff in order to inoculate her from the poison that is the Obama foreign policy. Make no mistake about it. She was right in there. That is the cliche, the dirty little secret."
Because you see folks, for the media, it's Hillary's turn (again), says El Rushbo...

Hillary Clinton Wants to ‘Hug It Out’ With Obama

So, why is Hillary trashing Obama now? Rush has an answer...
"I think Hillary knows, and is convinced, that a whole lot worse is yet to come. What's happening now -- Iran, Iraq, Syria, immigration, you name it -- what's happening now may be bad, may be uncomfortable. But with Obama basically disengaged, uninterested, incompetent, and John Kerry who's no better, what does she know that we don't know that she thinks might be happening in the next two years that she doesn't want to be anywhere near? She doesn't want to be associated with this regime. She doesn't want to be thought of in the same sentence. I'm telling you, I think the reason that she's distancing herself so decisively, so decidedly, and so soon is because she has an idea of how bad it could potentially get, and she doesn't want to be anywhere near it if something blows up."

But don't be fooled again, America...these two always 'hug it out,' because he is her, and she is him.

And in lieu of any serious Republican candidates -- I"m talking about the Mitt Romney/Chris Christie/Jeb Bush trifecta of establishment losers -- she will unfortunately be our next president. It'll be up to the American People to find someone better than any of these miscreants to lead us out of the current mess they've collectively made and set us back on a more righteous course.

Black Panthers throw Obama under the bus

Can't we all just get along? Not even the Great Obama can work that miracle. Some might even say he's exacerbated things...including the New Black Panthers!

You've inevitably been inundated with coverage of the anarchy coming out of Ferguson, MO following the shooting death of another would-be presidential son, so I'm not gonna attempt to rehash this Trayvon rerun. What I did want to address however was the Thursday evening takeover of what was supposed to be the Ferguson Police Chief's press conference by the New Black Panthers, who proceeded to throw the man they were once cozy with and helped elect (albeit through illegal voter intimidation) into the White House...
TheBlaze: Protesters and members of the New Black Panther Party took over what was supposed to be Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson’s press conference Thursday regarding the ongoing unrest in the St. Louis suburb.

A crowd gathered inside the Ferguson fire department as New Black Panther Party leader Hashim Nzinga addressed the crowd, mostly focusing his anger on President Barack Obama.

“This is a shame that as we speak the president of United States is talking to Russia, he’s talking to China, he’s talking to North Korea, he’s talking to Iraq and the Middle East about treating their people better,” he said. “But as he look out the window at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he’s watching the black man, who built the White House, shot down like dogs.”

Nzinga also claimed Obama is from Kenya, calling him a “Mau Mau.”

“He need to go back to his roots and stop people from killing Africans in the streets,” he added.

KTVI reports that Chief Jackson left the area when the protesters invaded the news conference.

Nzinga was arrested on weapons charges in 2012 shortly after offering a “dead or alive” bounty on George Zimmerman’s head.
Nice stars on the shoulders...wonder how many white devils you have to knock out to get those?! Don't want to put that one on the national stage.

More distractions, folks.

ADDENDUM: Case closed? Rush divulges that the Drive-Bys knew about the video of the 'strong-arm robbery' by the not-so-gentle giant Michael Brown in a Ferguson convenience store, but apparently they wanted to make another racial circus out of it. I smell Sanford, Florida all over this one...

It’s like Obama doesn’t know that internet video is for-EVAH!

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." ~ Joseph Goebbels
So, what happens when you've told those lies so many times, and people actually did believe it, but then you do the opposite to prove it was a lie to begin with? I'd say that goes well beyond mere hypocrisy. I suppose his hope extends towards our collective memory lapse, alongside the MSM's lack of holding this phony accountable in any meaningful manner. But folks...the time limit on forgiving and forgetting has long expired with this chief.

Just as Obama is obviously backing off the applause line during almost every campaign address made in 2012: “I promised to end the war in Iraq, and I did.”...

...he was also apparently just kidding when swearing off leisure time, then proceeding to hit the golf course 186 times (and counting)!

H/t: DC, WZ, FB, DR

Aside from these compulsive lies, reminiscent of all the ones before, including the Obamacare whoppers, fat chance of Americans being so distracted that they forget about the current threat to our national sovereignty: illegal immigration and lack of border security. We can walk and chew gum at the same time.

Mr. "I ended the war in Iraq" restarts the war in Iraq

Says the man who campaigned (both times) on ending Bush's War and pulling troops out of Iraq...
NYTimes: President Obama said on Saturday that the airstrikes and humanitarian assistance drops he ordered last week in Iraq could go on for months, preparing Americans for an extended military presence in the skies there as Iraq’s leaders try to build a new government.

“I don’t think we’re going to solve this problem in weeks,” Mr. Obama told reporters before leaving for a two-week golf-and-beach vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. “This is going to be a long-term project.”

The president repeated his insistence that his administration would not send ground troops back to Iraq after ending an unpopular, decade-long war and withdrawing the last troops in 2011. But two days after emphasizing the limited scope of the mission in a White House address, he pledged that the United States would stand with Iraq if it could form a unified and inclusive government to counter the Sunni militants who threaten its future.

“Changing that environment so that the millions of Sunnis who live in these areas feel connected to and well served by a national government, that’s a long-term process,” he said during a lengthy departure statement on the White House lawn during which he took several questions from reporters.

The American military continued striking militants in Iraq on Saturday, with jet fighters and drones conducting four attacks that military officers said were designed to defend Yazidis, an ethnic and religious minority.
Haven't Christians in Syria and Iraq been threatened and attacked over the past several months by these same ISIS forces? Just saying...

But just for gits and shiggles, let's FLASHBACK...
CNSNews: On multiple occasions in the run-up to the 2012 election, President Obama gave himself credit for ending the war in Iraq. Here on video are some of those back-patting moments.

Really? We're leaving behind a solid, stable, self-reliant Iraq? Not so much...

But no, delete all that from your memory, clear your cache, especially the drones out there. Because now Barack Obama says 'not my decision' to pull troops out of Iraq! Unreal...
NRO: President Obama refused to take responsibility for the lack of U.S. troops in Iraq, saying that American soldiers had to pull out due to political pressure from Iraqi leaders.

“This issue keeps on coming up as if this was my decision,” Obama retorted when asked if he had any second thoughts, in light of the terrorist force taking over regions of Iraq, about having pulled all American troops out of the country. “The reason that we did not have a follow-on force in Iraq was because a majority of Iraqis did not want U.S. troops there and politically they could not pass the kind of laws that would be required to protect our troops in Iraq,” he said.

A report in The New Yorker showed how President Obama failed to secure the status of forces agreement necessary to leave the troops in place after 2011.
Related link: Obama: Pulling All U.S. Troops Out of Iraq Was Not 'My Decision'

That's what a handshake's worth with this joker. And the lib media aren't too happy about it. But the fact is Obama didn't end the war in Iraq...he restarted it.
NRO: President Barack Obama came to office promising to “bring a responsible end to the war in Iraq.” That should have been easy enough to do, considering the war was already over. Alas, he seems to have had in mind something quite different than “ending a war.” Perhaps because of his general bias against exertions of American power, Obama seems to have convinced himself that our continuing military presence in post-war Iraq was the same as continuing the war.

This novel conception of when wars end suggests Obama may yet pull our forces out of Europe and the Far East in order to “end” World War II. It also helps to explain how he came to equate “responsibly ending the war in Iraq” with throwing away everything we had gained from it. Obama made it plain from the start that he saw no reason to keep investing in a mistake. He let our military presence in Iraq lapse, and left the Iraqi government to fend for itself when it was still far too fragile. There is a reason we stayed in Germany and Japan and South Korea for decades after the fighting stopped: We didn’t want our sacrifices to be for nothing, and we didn’t want to have to fight again.

Now the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS — the very al-Qaeda forces we defeated in Iraq in 2007 — have come back and taken over huge swaths of the country, including most of the Sunni heartland to the west and north of Baghdad. Meanwhile, over in next-door Syria, Obama stood by while the rebels fighting Bashar Assad came under the dominance of extreme Islamist forces, and then sold them all out with the chemical-weapons deal in September 2013. Consequently, we have thrown the Iraqi government into a de facto alliance with the murderous Baathist regime in Syria — a feat that not even common enemies and a common ideology could achieve during Saddam’s rule — and now both governments find themselves increasingly dependent on Iran.

With Iran’s power and prestige thus enhanced, and rapidly filling the vacuum left behind by the U.S., the mullahs now see the possibility at long last of extending the Islamic Revolution across the Fertile Crescent. With our impending agreement to let Iran keep its nuclear-weapons programs, we can now settle comfortably into the role of a de facto subordinate ally of Iran, whose forces we may soon be helping with air strikes in Iraq. If you’re wondering where that leaves our actual allies among the Gulf kingdoms and Israel, they are wondering the same thing.

Foreign-policy mistakes are inevitable, and should generally be expected, if not always forgiven. But in its approach to Iraq and the Middle East as a whole, the Obama administration has been criminally negligent. It could be years and maybe decades before we see a situation as good as the one Obama found when he got to office — and things are almost certainly going to get far worse before they get better.
Rick Moran adds:
AmericanThinker: When a politician invests so much in trying to prove failure, what are we to expect but failure? ISIS was nearly dead and buried in 2008 following the surge. The fact that they were able to reconstitute themselves is due to two factors; the Syrian civil war where they first went to fight and recruit; and the policies of Prime Minister Maliki that angered Sunnis and fed Sunni paranoia about Shiite dominance. Both factors existed because Barack Obama failed to back the secular opposition (or, at least, the non-jihadist opposition) in Syria and because there was no restraining influence of American troops in Iraq, Maliki brought down the hammer on Sunnis.

In a very real sense, Loyola is right. It is decisions made by the president that has led directly to the situation Iraq finds itself in today. Restarting the war? He practically encouraged it with his policies.
