A stunning reversal

This article highlights why Mary Landrieu’s political career is all but officially over: In the last six years, Landrieu lost ground to Republicans in every Louisiana parish. In 2008, she defeated Republican John Kennedy by 121,111 votes statewide. This time, Cassidy and third-place finisher Rob Maness, a tea-party favorite who has since endorsed the congressman, […]

Great Moments in Taxing, Spending, and Regulating

When people ask me why I mock government for being a slovenly, bloated, and malicious entity, I’m sometimes not sure what to say. Do I give them examples of corrupt corporate welfare? Do I share instances of government thuggery? Do I direct them to preposterous examples of waste? Do I show them details about an […]

Conservative Comedy 11/28/14

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. This past week brought the long-awaited Grand Jury’s verdict from Ferguson, MO. As many thought would happen, they determined that Officer Darren Wilson did nothing wrong when he used deadly force as a last resort to save his own life when attacked by a huge, drug-fueled thug who had just committed robbery and assault. What this incendiary situation did not need was Barack Hussein Obama second-guessing the Grand Jury and telling the looters (in wink-wink nudge-nudge fashion) that they damn well should be angry at filthy awful white people. Unfortunately, that’s the subtext that came through loud and clear in his statement following the announcement of the Ferguson decision. Need more proof that Barry is a deliberate race-baiter? How about the White House weekly address on the president’s executive order granting amnesty to 5 million illegals. As a special “screw you,” the address was delivered in Spanish and asserted that “being American is about more than what we look like or where we come […]

‘How Obama Can Show He Has Israel’s Back’..Wha-aat?

http://images.sodahead.com/polls/002550909/3957339771_israel20obama20knife20in20the20back20mod_xlarge.jpeg

William McGurn at the New York Daily News has an interesting piece up entitled ‘Embassy row: How Obama can show he has Israel’s back.’

McGurn’s proposition? That the president issue an executive order recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol.

He attempts to make the case that this would actually benefit the president by improving his relationship with congress by doing something it wants done,and that it would “show that this president is committed to the connection of the Jewish people to the heart of the Jewish homeland.”

He writes that it would give President Obama more credibility in opposing Israeli PM Netanyahu’s policies,that it might actually improve the climate for negotiations for a Palestinian state, and that it might preempt congressional action on the matter with the new Republican dominated congress.

Now, all this is an admirable sentiment,and some of the benefits Mr. McGurn spells out here actually are real and tangible.But can anyone even imagine President Obama caring about that for a moment? Are you kidding?

Aside from the fact he could care less about having a good working relationship with congress, let’s not forget that he has done nothing since he was quite young but hang out and be influenced by anti-semites and Israel bashers, including Frank Marshall Davis, Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, Edward Said, Rashid Khalidi et al. An animus against Israel is practically wired into his DNA.If congress passed legislation recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol, he would veto it without a second thought, even if his fellow Democrats begged him not to.

He came into office in 2009 pledging to create ‘daylight’ between America and Israel. His feelings about Israel are so innate as to be unchangeable. In fact, that’s one reason Former defense Secretary Hagel got the axe..After getting to know the Israelis better, Hagel had changed his views quite a bit. Remember Obama’s reaction during the Gaza War when he found out the Pentagon was following its normal policy and shipping Israel arms it had already paid for? He held up the shipments of things like Hellfire missiles for ‘State Department review’ in the middle of a war, and Israel didn’t receive them until well after the war was over. That has never happened before, not since the US first began selling Israel arms during the Nixon administration.

I have good sources in Israel, and I can assure you that while some parts continue to work (such as long standing cooperation between the two militaries)this president and his team have severely damaged America’s relationship with one of our most important allies to the point that it is going to take a lot of time and a huge amount of work to repair it. The Israelis themselves never imagined an anti-Israel president in the White House, and the shock was deep. The Israelis are not even certain at this point about one of the key benefits for them in the relationship, America using its Security Council veto to shut down blatantly anti-Israel resolutions in the anti-semitic fun house the UN has become.

President Obama is probably less likely to do anything that shows ‘he has Israel’s back’ than a pig would be to suddenly start singing Broadway show tunes. It would simply be an unnatural act for him.

In fairness, Mr. McGurn seems to realize this, although perhaps not how deep seated the reasons for it are.

But if he realizes that it’s something President Barack Hussein Obama would never do, I can’t quite see the point of the article either. And rest assured, this by itself would not reassure the Israelis or give the president any added credibility with them given President Obama’s track record. Instead, they would immediately be worrying what dagerous concessions he forced Netanyahu to agree to in exchange.

Wales Compromising Scotland: Should Britain Keep Its Promise?

A few months after residents in the Scottish region of the E.U. state of Britain voted not to secede from the state by a margin of 55 to 45 percent, a state commission announced proposals for the regional assembly to have more authority. David Cameron had promised on behalf of the state government that the Scottish region would be given more power provided the residents reject secession. To be sure, replying on such a promise in political matters is hazardous at best, as changing political winds can easily erode such sand castles. At the very least, political players with their own agendas can succeed in obfuscating the understood validity of such a promise.

IRS Scandals Update

I generally don’t feel a special degree of animosity for the internal revenue service. After all, it’s the politicians who have created the 74,000-plus page monstrosity of a tax code. Blaming the IRS for enforcing that system is like blaming the police for the drug war. This isn’t to say the IRS is blameless. Just […]

Catholic Humor: Obama and the Pope are on a stage…

Get Obama Toilet Paper For That Special Someone On Your Christmas Giving List!
Or, if that doesn’t HIT the spot, might I suggest The Obama Punching Bag instead?

But first an unbelievable statement about politics out of the mouth of Nancy Pelosi!

We know that politicians lie and say things that are patently untrue, but Pelosi has gone above and beyond with this statement concerning Washington, Chuckie Cheese Schumer’s defection on Obamacare and on politics in general:

“We came here to do a job, not keep a job”

The joke below is not new but as the Obama presidency drones on it is increasingly appropriate! 

The Pope and Obama are on the same stage in Yankee Stadium in front of a huge crowd.  

The Pope leans towards President Obama and says, “Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy?  This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into their hearts and they’ll forever speak of this day and rejoice!”

Obama replied, “I seriously doubt that!  With one little wave of your hand? Show me!” 

So the Pope backhanded him and knocked him off the stage!

The crowd roared and cheered wildly and there was happiness throughout the land!
