Barack Obama, our next President

Perhaps the State Department should have revoked Awalikis citizenship before he was killed. That's what this is about.
I think what this is about is now "an informed, high-level official of the U.S. Government" has the authority to order the execution of US citizens. They don't have to bring charges or have any evidence, evidently they just need their good judgement.

That is only the case if the suspects were gone. In the event of a robbery or break in where the suspects are still there, they do respond immediately.
Got it?
Any place other than Chicago, if the subjects were still there, the police might not be necessary.

A couple of thoughts about the Brzezinski interview below. First, it flatly contradicts the common justification for U.S. actions in Afghanistan during the 1980s: that the U.S. simply aided forces resisting Soviet imperialism. Brzezinski makes clear that the Soviets were baited into sending forces to Afghanistan; thus their actions were defensive. Moreover, the U.S. used the violent Wahhabi (Saudi Arabian) form of Islam to create a monster-movement which plagues the world today. or more on this, see 'Articles Documenting U.S. Creation of Taliban and bin Laden's Terrorist Network' athttp://emperors-clothes.com/ docs/doc.htm
A reader wrote: "Similarly just because Brzezinski (among others) likes to claim that he personally overthrew the Soviet Union doesn't mean that you or the rest of us have to take him seriously. Nobody in 1979 had any reason to think that the Afghan war would bring down the USSR. Nor have we any real reason to think that it did bring it down."
The point is well taken at least as regards Brzezinski's claim that his Afghan strategy destroyed the Soviet Union. But the issue here is a different one: what role did the U.S. government play in the creation of Islamist terrorism? In that regard, Brzezinski's assertion that the U.S. provoked Soviet actions and that Islamism was deliberately fostered is backed up by sources on all sides of the Afghan issue.

So, when you call 9-1-1 in Chicago, just say you're not sure if the bad guys are still there.

If you attempt to dodge answering a question by asking a question, I just go back to the original questions you dodged. For instance, the questions you've been dodging for a month now:
Where was Obama during the 7-goddam-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi when orders with presidential authority came from the White House to hang the Americans in Benghazi out to dry while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the live video feed?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
When you answer these questions, then we can get to the questions you posed in your predictable attempt to digress and avoid admitting Obama is a clown act.

"Lighter duty police" sounds like washed-up retreads who should be replaced by capable officers.
Ignoring crimes against property just encourages more such crimes.
that's how NYC was lost by the libs. Guliani brought it back by implementing the Broken Window approach to fighting crime:

'The idea of it is that you had to pay attention to small things, otherwise they would get out of control and become much worse. And that, in fact, in a lot of our approach to crime, quality of life, social programs, we were allowing small things to get worse rather than dealing with them at the earliest possible stage. That approach had been tried in other cities, but all small cities, and there was a big debate about whether it could work in a city as large as New York. One of the ways that New York used to resist any kind of change was to say, "It can't work here," because they wanted to keep the status quo. There is such a desire for people to do that, to keep the status quo. And I thought, "Well, there's no reason why it can't work in New York City. We have bigger resources. We may have bigger problems, we have bigger resources, the same theory should work." So we started paying attention to the things that were being ignored. Aggressive panhandling, the squeegee operators that would come up to your car and wash the window of your car whether you wanted it or not -- and sometimes smashed people's cars or tires or windows -- the street-level drug-dealing; the prostitution; the graffiti, all these things that were deteriorating the city. So we said, "We're going to pay attention to that," and it worked. It worked because we not only got a big reduction in that, and an improvement in the quality of life, but massive reductions in homicide, and New York City turned from the crime capital of America to the safest large city in the country for five, six years in a row.'

compare that to cities run by libs, like Detroit, Chicago and Newark.

Question: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalists, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?

Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?**

Question: Some stirred-up Moslems? But it has been said and repeated: Islamic fundamentalism represents a world menace today.

Brzezinski: Nonsense! It is said that the West had a global policy in regard to Islam. That is stupid. There isn't a global Islam. Look at Islam in a rational manner and without demagoguery or emotion. It is the leading religion of the world with 1.5 billion followers. But what is there in common among Saudi Arabian fundamentalism, moderate Morocco, Pakistan militarism, Egyptian pro-Western or Central Asian secularism? Nothing more than what unites the Christian countries.*

Early Tuesday afternoon, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor plans to deliver a major speech kicking off his latest attempt at revitalizing the Republican Party brand.
If this sounds vaguely familiar to you, it's not your imagination. As Politico's Jake Sherman and Jonathan Allen point out, this isn't Cantor's first rodeo when it comes to brand rebuilding—it will be his fourth. In 2009, there was the National Council for a New America, in 2010 there was the "Young Guns", and in 2011 there was "cut-and-grow."
Sadly for Cantor, in 2012 his efforts were rewarded with the reelection of President Barack Obama, a larger Democratic majority in the Senate, and a smaller Republican majority in the House. But now it's 2013 and it's apparently time for the fourth generation of Eric Cantor, GOP Brand Rebuilder™. So, on Tuesday morning, Cantor explained to CBS News what will be different this time:
What this is about is about making sure that we can express why we're doing what we're doing ... what it is more is explaining why we're doing what we're doing.
Aha. So instead of doing something about being wrong, this time Eric Cantor thinks House Republicans need to do a better job of explaining why they are wrong. Great plan, sir. It worked so well the last three times you tried it.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/02/05/1184...
Hey, maybe in the course of explaining why they're doing something they'll come to the realization that its a stupid thing to do and they can stop themselves from doing it?

Maybe we're just different in that way - believing in a higher and nobler cause.
Is there anything you would be willing to die for? Just curious.
Well, speaking solely for ourselves, I'd die to see you die. This is pretty deep stuff so take your time with it.

Saddam would be Obama's problem now.
Good thing he's one less enemy for him to worry about, huh?
You'd think the Democrats would be thrilled that he's gone since they wanted to get rid of him too.
So what do you think the UN meant when they issued a warning to Saddam of "serious consequences" if he tried to bamboozle them one more time?
I always wondered about that myself.
Saddam would still be Ahmedinijad's problem and neither would be our problem.

SFRC Testimony -- Zbigniew Brzezinski
February 1, 2007

Mr. Chairman:

Your hearings come at a critical juncture in the U.S. war of choice in Iraq, and I commend you and Senator Lugar for scheduling them.

It is time for the White House to come to terms with two central realities:

1. The war in Iraq is a historic, strategic, and moral calamity. Undertaken under false assumptions, it is undermining America’s global legitimacy. Its collateral civilian casualties as well as some abuses are tarnishing America’s moral credentials. Driven by Manichean impulses and imperial hubris, it is intensifying regional instability.

2. Only a political strategy that is historically relevant rather than reminiscent of colonial tutelage can provide the needed framework for a tolerable resolution of both the war in Iraq and the intensifying regional tensions.

If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted bloody involvement in Iraq, the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large. A plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks; followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure; then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran; culminating in a “defensive” U.S. military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

A mythical historical narrative to justify the case for such a protracted and potentially expanding war is already being articulated. Initially justified by false claims about WMD’s in Iraq, the war is now being redefined as the “decisive ideological struggle” of our time, reminiscent of the earlier collisions with Nazism and Stalinism. In that context, Islamist extremism and al Qaeda are presented as the equivalents of the threat posed by Nazi Germany and then Soviet Russia, and 9/11 as the equivalent of the Pearl Harbor attack which precipitated America’s involvement in World War II.
