“The county is better off, people just don’t feel it.”  That was President Obama’s position in a Sunday interview with CBS’ 60 MINUTES. 


I think that’s proof enough that he really comes from another planet.  His policies have the country with a much higher real rate of unemployment, a shrunken average family income, higher family expenses, terrorism that is flourishing in the Middle East, an Iran that is on the verge of having nuclear weapons, a Russia which has no regard for America, a crushing national debt, unsecured borders, a raging illegal immigration problem and flaring racism.  He’s mesmerized the Democratic Party into becoming complete zombies and he’s alienated the rest of the free world.  On the other hand, he IS improving the national interest in golf. 


Q. What is your response to the news that the first case of Ebola virus has appeared in the U.S.?  (Meredith ~ Salt Lake City, UT)
A. It seems to me that yesterday’s CDC press conference was chuck-full of assurances that everything is fine and dandy in America.  Keep in mind that these assurances come from the government agency that has bungled the security of several dangerous diseases kept in its laboratory lockers.  Nevertheless, we have no choice but to hope and pray that they are correct.  I’m absolutely sure that anyone who becomes infected will be well-cared-for under ObamaCare.  Yes siree.   

Q. I understand that over 60 countries are now part of the coalition against I.S.I.S.  That is quite a turnaround.  (Wayne ~ Woodland, WA)
A. Only three of those nations have agreed to assist in airstrikes into Syria.  None of those nations have agreed to provide ground troops in either Iraq or Syria.  There is a dramatic lack of enthusiasm for the missions that really need to be accomplished, and the general consensus is that someone needs to step up and fill the void in competent leadership.  There is also a valid fear that Obama is about to trade with Iran… they can have their nukes if they will help us on the ground.  If that should happen, we need to run the s.o.b. out of the country and back to Kenya, where he belongs. 

Q. I hear the Democratic National Committee and some of its political hack organizations are intimidating businesses against advertising on the Rush Limbaugh Show?  (Van ~ Goleta, CA)
A. It’s the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  Limbaugh says this goes beyond activism and amounts to blackmail.  Why is it that those evil-doer, roughrider Nazis always go after the guys who tell the truth and leave the liars, cheats and spinners alone?  Someone needs to feed them some Ex-Lax.

I was on vacation in Washington State and returned late to the mountain top to get my blogs posted when I realized that my UPS had died.  So, there I was, all ready to write and no way to do it.  

Well, I could have ventured down into the deep, dark abyss of power cords and attempted to untangle the mess, plug the pertinent power cords into a surge protector and then done my journalistic chores.  But, there was another problem... I had a glass of Irish whiskey on the rocks staring me in the face.  So, I did the natural thing and took care of first things first; I drank the whiskey.  

Unlike someone else in the country, I will now accept the blame for not getting published yesterday.  And I will apologize for ignoring my duties to you, the loyal reader.  And I will not mention the fact that James Clapper and George Bush were both sitting here drinking along with me, thereby preventing me from properly doing my job.  

But then again, I don't occupy the White House, either. 

I'll be back in my usual and rare form tomorrow.

President Obama alleged yesterday on CBS 60 MINUTES that U.S. intelligence officials "underestimated" the threat posed by the Islamic State and overestimated the Iraqi army’s capacity to defeat them, thereby causing his failure to take action in Iraq and Syria. 

Let's again make one thing clear: Obama started the bombing and missile raids in Iraq and Syria because he was sinking in the polls; he did it to save his own ass, not to protect America.  How he has the audacity to look at himself in the mirror in the morning and call himself a president of anything except the National Liars Club is beyond me. 

Q. I hear that the new Washington, D.C. law allowing concealed carry provides for public disclosure of the names and address of permit holders? (Izzy ~ Detroit, MI)
A. That measure was introduced as an amendment to the new law, but withdrawn.  That does disclose the mentality of the anti-gun movement, however.  Since the Courts ruled that D.C. must issue such permits, they want to “get even.”  Thank God they can’t shoot straight.  

Q. What do you think about the disclosure that government bureaucrats are watching porn on their PC’s on government time?  (Percy ~ Lawton, OK)
A. I don’t see anything wrong with it.  They’re screwing the public all of the time anyway.  The only difference is that they don’t use condoms when they’re screwing the public. 

Q. The news last week came that the White House Press Pool is being censored by White House officials; they cannot release a story unless it is approved by the Press Secretary and their stories are routinely “corrected?” 
A. I’ve indicated this was going on many times in the past.  Up until now, reporters have been threatened that their White House press credentials would be revoked if they did not comply.  Obviously, the White House has some big things to hide, but I’m told that Obama’s biggest fear is that someone might discover his golf handicap.

The FBI has been handcuffed in terms of investigating religious extremists in mosques, as a result of guidelines put out by the attorney general earlier this year. There is a definite problem now in investigating those militants in the United States who are either recruiting for ISIS or have returned from Syria or Iraq having fought for ISIS, and are ready to carry out freelance or directed terrorist attacks on behalf of ISIS against the United States, according to BREITBART.COM. 

Now isn't that just a fine kettle of fish?  How many militants fighting for I.S.I.S. are NOT Muslims?  Where has this nation let our "leader" lead us?  (Oh yeah... to the I-PadStore.) 

Q. Now that we’re engaged against terrorism, have you changed your opinion of Obama?  (Myrtle ~ Ocean Shores, WA)
A. No, not at all.  Obama did not do a damned thing except to stick his head in the sand and proclaim Al Qaeda to be finished off until American public opinion turned against him.  His motives, therefore, were no to save the country but… to save his own sorry ass. 

Q. Why did Obama have to essentially apologize to the rest of the world again for the United States at the U.N. meeting this week?  (Ellie ~ Boise, ID)
A. Because he hates America and wishes desperately that he’d been born in Kenya. 

Q. Now that we’ve started attacks on I.S.I.S., do you think that the chance of some terrorist attack within the U.S. has increased?  (Vic ~ Yreka, CA)
A. Yes, beyond a doubt.  Don’t you wonder why our terrorist threat level has not increased?  I think Obama is waiting for some Republican to be beheaded. In the meantime, enjoy your Krispy Kremes.

… After Obama took charge of the government.  The Government Accountability Office issued a report this week detailing how the Obama administration has failed to adequately document where $3.7 billion in taxpayer money was spent promoting Obamacare’s online marketplace.


Actually, that $3.7 billion is chump change when you consider how much in total this ObamaCare has cost the country.  When you add in the money he robbed from Medicare and Medicaid to fool you into thinking they were wasting less than they are, the total comes to well over… $1 TRILLION dollars.  Just think about how many greens fees you could pay with that. 


Q. Iranian’s President Hassan Rouhani has called U.S. attacks in Syrian illegal.  He says we can go into Iraq, because Iraq gave permission, but Syria did not.  Are we going to be charged with war crimes now?  (Duke ~ Houston, TX)
A. Well, Rouhani is legally correct, but I would say that he has a lot of guts calling it illegal when he is not complying with U.N. demands for stopping his nuclear weapons program.  He can’t have it both ways, unless he’s an Obamacrat. 

Q. More and more, it looks like you were correct in that Jeb Bush is going to run for President.  Do you think it’s going to be the same old same old with the Republicans in 2016?  (Garcia ~ Eugene, OR)
A. Yes.  Look for Romney and Bush.  The Republican hierarchy remains bound and determined to shoot itself in the foot… with a self-assault weapon.   

Q. I know you dislike Holder almost as much as you dislike Obama.  Now that Holder has announced his resignation, what do you have to say?  (Diana ~ Corte Madera, CA)
A. Bye, bye now.  


“I don’t miss politics.” ~ Jeb Bush

Holy Cincinnati!  China has had the nerve to tell Obama where to take his “climate change” agenda!  China says it is not going to pony up a dime and that the costs of any such initiative around the world must be borne by “Western nations,” meaning us.  The Chinese communist regime insists that the incentive payments it demands must come from “new, additional, adequate, predictable and sustained public funds, rather than mostly private financing, as the U.S. hopes.


I have to have the temerity to ask: If we don’t have enough money to prosecute the war on terror, and if we’ve already literally put ObamaCare into bankruptcy due to its massive overspending and lack of enrollments, where in the hell are we going to get the money to finance the rest of the world in a phony Gorey Obama Global Warming scheme? Oh, that's right... Obama is going to raise the national minimum wage to $15.00 an hour, so we'll be able to afford it. 


Q. I have concerns about the Ebola virus coming to the U.S., especially when our Centers for Disease Control has shown such a lax safety record recently.  (Charmaine ~ Richmond, CA)
A. Hmm, let’s see.  Anthrax, smallpox, bird flu…. And the Lord only knows how many other security breaches there have been that they didn’t talk about.  But, don’t worry about it; if the danger gets too high, Obama will send 3,000 troops to contain it.  He’s so cool.  

Q. Why do we have to get involved in Iraq again?  I.S.I.S. is their problem, not ours.  (Danny ~ Leavenworth, KS)
A. If we had maintained that attitude in our history, it’s a tossup as to whether we’d all be speaking German, Italian, Japanese or Russian by now.  I.S.I.S. is an embodiment of evil that is intent on ruling the world and killing all non-believers.  The real question to ask is: “Why, at this moment when the world stands at the precipice of World War III, have we saddled ourselves with Barack Obama as President?” 

Q. Do you really think Obama would endanger the Middle East by allowing Iran to obtain nuclear weapons in exchange for their help against I.S.I.S.?  (Lester ~ Hayward, CA)
A. Yes, he would rather do that than to put American troops on the ground at this point.  In short, he is more concerned about his Presidential legacy as being a “peacetime President” than he is about World War III.  Only the polls can change his mind or, perhaps, sinking a 50-foot putt. 


“If Iran and North Korea, by some horrible, devilish, nightmarish scenario, got together and went to war at the same time, one against Saudi Arabia and one against South Korea, I don’t know what we would do about that.  I don’t know that we could stop them short of using nuclear weapons.” ~ Ben Stein

TODAY’S VIDEO:  (Wow, am I relieved to hear this…)

Although ObamaCare has been the “law of the land” since October’s implementation of signups, and although ObamaCare was designed to make sure everyone in the country has insurance, the actual number of insured people in the country has dropped, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. 

Well, just who are you going to believe: Obama’s reports or the Census Bureau? 

Q. Why do you insist on saying we have to have ground troops to take out I.S.I.S.?  (Karla ~ Alturas, CA)
A. There is no way… no way… that we can defeat these scum from the air.  Everyone who knows anything about war and about terrorists agrees with me.  If you’re intending to win, you never send in the second string to start.  Now then, I have a question for you: Why isn’t I.S.I.S. taking on Russia or China?  Could it be because bullies only pick on the weak? 

Q. Leading Democrats have launched a very serious campaign to force Rush Limbaugh off the air.  Do you think they will succeed?  (Uncle Runt ~ Blaine, WA)
A. Isn’t that just typical Democrat thinking?  If they don’t like or understand what you are saying, then they want to establish limited “free speech zones” or even to shut you up altogether.  That’s Communistic, fascist, Nazi, Marxist dogma, pure and simple, and the Democrats are espousing it.  They need to lose their jobs in November and go join I.S.I.S. in December. 

Q. The U.S. tax code is over 70,000 pages and growing.  How can we be expected to follow all of that that?  (Billy ~ Yuma, AZ)
A. That’s the whole idea: you can’t.  So, you’re forced to hire a tax expert to do your taxes for you; hence, retiring I.R.S. guys are guaranteed a plush retirement income as tax consultants.  Uh, by the way… you can’t renounce your citizenship and leave the country either, unless you’re willing to pay a $500,000 Obama-invented tax penalty.  He’s so cool.
