Widows and Orphans

151120-widows-and-orphansIn the wake of the ISIS attacks on Paris, the leader of the free world retaliated vigorously against his enemy – Republicans. He struck hard against anyone who questioned whether terrorists might surf a wave of Syrian refugees into America.

His weapon of choice was sarcasm:

“Apparently they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America,” Obama said of the GOP. “At first, they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of three year old orphans. That doesn’t seem so tough to me.”

Hours later, as French security forces closed in on a terrorist hideout, a woman outfitted in a suicide belt blew herself up.

The head and spine of Europe’s first female suicide bomber flew through a window and landed on the street outside when she blew herself up during the siege of Saint-Denis.

What Obama’s Not Interested in Doing

French President Hollande pronounced France at war and promised to destroy ISIS/ISIL.

At a press conference today President Obama could barely be bothered to answer questions about his ISIS strategy. He seemed sedated. There was plenty of his customary “what we’re not going to do” line of lecturing. As in, “What I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of ‘American leadership’ or ‘America winning,”’

He spoke in a sort of monotone and mentioned how busy he is. Here’s a You Tube of the speech.

Pipeline to Paris


When President Obama killed the Keystone Pipeline last Friday he threw blue collar unions under the bus in favor of elitist greens. That’s according to Terry O’Sullivan, president of the Laborers International Union of North America.

Obama agrees:

“Approving this project would have undercut our global leadership on climate.”

He hopes to lead the UN climate conference in Paris at the end of the month.

Obama 60 Minutes Interview

101014-sixty-minutesI was in Kuwait and Iraq last week – more on that later.

While I was gone I noticed president Obama made another 60 Minutes appearance with his go-to guy, Steve Kroft.

60 Minutes

In the past Kroft has served up fat softballs to the president. Here’s a link to a joint interview he did with Obama and Hillary Clinton after the 2012 presidential election. (Click on Connor Friedersdorf.)

This time, instead of softballs, Kroft offered a few change of pace questions that annoyed both the president and the far left media. During one of the president’s rambling responses Kroft told him he felt like he was being filibustered.

Obama’s comment on “local Sunnis” is one Kroft didn’t follow up on, so I did it for him.

Putin’s Quagmire


Vladimir Putin is in Syria killing people and breaking things. He told the US to get out of the way. Putin’s the new cop in the Middle East. He says Russia is part of an alliance to stop ISIS, like the alliance to stop Hitler. But he seems more interested in stopping the revolt against his guy, Bashar Assad.


Barack Obama is flexible. He showed no sign of humiliation. He even welcomed Putin but warned him about be getting into a quagmire. Then he got out of the way.
