Liberals support Moslems: what a wonderful world!
The "war" part of the war on terror is pretty much over, and we're now fighting it culturally, rhetorically.

Which is not something liberals do well.

Take the British prime minister and his traditional nothing-to-do-with-Islam statement, issued in the wake of the Kenyan shopping-mall carnage:

"These appalling terrorist attacks that take place where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of a religion: They don't. They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world. They don't represent Islam, or Muslims in Britain or anywhere else in the world."

Same with the Muslims who beheaded a British soldier, Drummer Rigby, on a London street in broad daylight.

On that occasion, David Cameron assured us that the unfortunate incident was "a betrayal of Islam.... There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act."

How does he know? Mr. Cameron is not (yet) a practicing Muslim. A self-described "vaguely practicing" Anglican, he becomes rather less vague and unusually forceful and emphatic when the subject turns to Islam.

At the Westgate mall in Nairobi, the terrorists separated non-Muslim hostages from Muslims and permitted the latter to leave if they could recite a Muslim prayer—a test I doubt Mr. Cameron could have passed, for all his claims to authority on what is and isn't Islamic.

So the perpetrators seem to think it's something to do with Islam—and, indeed, something to do with Muslims in the United Kingdom, given that the terrorists included British subjects (as well as U.S. citizens).

It was a busy weekend for Nothing to Do with Islam Crowd.

Among the other events that were nothing to do with Islam were the murder of over 85 Pakistani Christians at All Saints' Church in Peshawar

and the beheading of Ricardo Dionio in the Philippines by BIFF, the aggressively acronymic breakaway faction (the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters) from the more amusingly acronymic MILF (the Moro Islamic Liberation Front).

Despite a body count higher than Kenya, the Pakistani slaughter received barely a mention in the Western media.

To be charitable to Mr. Cameron, he is trying to point out that very few Muslims want to stare a five-year-old in the eye and pull the trigger.

But, likewise, very few of them want to do anything serious—in their mosques and madrassahs—about the culture that incubates such men.

The prime minister is betting that all the clever chaps like him can keep the lid on and hold things to what cynical British officials privately called "an acceptable level of violence."

A combined weekend corpse count of 150 is, apparently, "acceptable"—or at any rate not sufficiently unacceptable to prompt any reconsideration of a British, Canadian, and European immigration policy that makes Islam the principal source of Western population growth.

We're surprised Obammy hasn't invited more to the White House for a sleepover.

If you bother to actually look into the issue, this is what you'll discover, just like everyone else who actually looked into the issue discovered.
To look into any issue, you have to make a commitment to not be ignorant. Obama may take your Democrat voter registration card away from you if you do this.
Here is the problem with the ObamaKare website:
DataTables is free, open source software that you can download and use for whatever purpose you wish, on any and as many sites you want. It is free for you to use! DataTables is available under two licenses: GPL v2 license or a BSD (3-point) license, with which you must comply (to do this, basically keep the copyright notices in the software).
For some reason, this clown act Obama has decided to eliminate the copyright notices from the software code, setting off software bombs.
Every problem with the website was caused by Obama's "programmers" violating the copyright agreement and removing the copyright notices from the code... for some reason.
Now, why would anyone use free software, then change the code to make it appear as if they weren't using that software?
This is just part of being a pathological liar. It was important to them for ignorant people to think they are smart enough to write the code for the ObamaKare website.
The truth is, this is just another case where Al Bundy could be our president. His plan A blows up in his face, and he doesn't have a plan B.
This is not only the most incompetent administration in the history of this country, it is probably the most incompetent administration of any country in the history of civilization.
So, how much more money will it cost us to fix Barack Bundy's stupidity?
And, when will you dupes wake up?
It's pretty simple. If I hire a tree trimmer and he manages to kill the tree, it's not my fault. Your claim that Obama somehow in collusion with the government contractor hired to write the code is completely illogical.

IF CGI Federal did what they are being accused of, THEY will have to settle with DataTables....not Obama.

Definition of an Obama supporter?

And will the main stream media lackeys pay ANY attention to what Obammy promised in his Monday speech?

I had a lot of fun with the "It's really good!" exclamation by the president on yesterday show, mixing his remarks into a 1974 Pinto ad, and calling forth memories of New Coke, Rosanne Barr singing the Star Spangled banner, the launch of Microsoft's Zune, the premier of "Heaven's Gate," and other "It's really good" moments from the past thirty years and seeing #ItsReallyGood take off on Twitter as a result.

Mockery is easy, but second-order exploration of the president's claims is now the key job of all media, especially by those Manhattan-Beltway media elites who share responsibility for the president's election, for the catastrophe that is Obamacare, and for his re-election: Could you at least do your basic jobs now that your favorite president ever is re-installed and your favorite law ever is crushing the little folk?

Yesterday the president announced that a massive "tech surge" was underway, with volunteers from the private sector pouring forth in a sort of virtual Dunkirk to save the collapsing Healthcare.gov . From the White House transcript of yesterday's remarks:

We’ve got people working overtime, 24/7, to boost capacity and address the problems. Experts from some of America’s top private-sector tech companies who, by the way, have seen things like this happen before, they want it to work. They're reaching out. They're offering to send help. We’ve had some of the best IT talent in the entire country join the team. And we’re well into a “tech surge” to fix the problem. And we are confident that we will get all the problems fixed.

The obvious questions are where is this "24/7" work actually happening? Who is in charge and, crucially, what is the chain of command?(We can trace a chain of command from every private up to the Commander-in-Chief, and we should be able to do so with regards to this tech surge underway.)

Who from the private sector reached out and to whom? Who offered help? Are we paying them? Where are they staying and working?

Will there be a concert to benefit the victims of Healthcare.gov ? OK, the president didn't promise that.

Except for the last, though, these are the sorts of questions the answers to which will together combine to give us a portrait not just of Obamacare at its dawn but also of the president's credibility, his awareness of the scale of the fail, as well as of his capacity to actually execute a recovery plan.

She's headed for a heart attack. Who is winding her up with this crap?
Here's the deal:

If there was no spying or intelligence; they'd be whining about it.
There is spying and intelligence that has thwarted countless attacks; the Drone program has been a phenomenal success.
If Bush had killed Al Awlaki, they'd have had a ticker tape parade!
Now, they are bemoaning the fact that he and his terrorist son were killed by a drone? Oh please.

This whole Snowden debacle has become a farce. Now he claims he didn't bring the files to Russia! Nor did he give them to China!
Where are they? Did he give them to his father?
If this dude was Russian, they'd have given him a cup of Thallium tea by now and the Chinese would have put him in front of a firing squad.

What the hell is Carol upset about? Does she think the NSA has caught her snooping where she shouldn't be? Has she had the "Knock, knock, Secret Service here"? visit?

<quoted text>Syria's Chemical Weapons Came From Saddam's Iraq: Wait What?
Me asked 6 months ago
In 2006, former Iraqi general Georges Sada, second in command of the Iraqi Air Force who served under Saddam Hussein before he defected, wrote a comprehensive book, "Saddam's Secrets."
It details how the Iraqi Revolutionary Guard moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria in advance of the U.S.-led action to eliminate Hussein's WMD threat.
There were 56 flights disguised as a relief effort after a 2002 Syrian dam collapse.
There were also truck convoys into Syria. Sada's comments came more than a month after Israel's top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Moshe Yaalon, told the Sun that Saddam "transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria."
Both Israeli and U.S. intelligence observed large truck convoys leaving Iraq and entering Syria in the weeks and months before Operation Iraqi Freedom, John Shaw, former deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, told a private conference of former weapons inspectors and intelligence experts held in Arlington, Va., in 2006.
According to Shaw, ex-Russian intelligence chief Yevgeni Primakov, a KGB general with long-standing ties to Saddam, went to Iraq in December 2002 and stayed until just before the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003.
Anticipating the invasion, his job was to supervise the removal of such weapons and erase as much evidence of Russian involvement as possible.
http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials ...
He is quoted as saying, "There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands," Mr. Sada said. "I am confident they were taken over."

I'm so glad he's knowledge is based on his confidence...

Must be the same confidence that told him the could resist the coalition....
