.. talking about about guts , courage , and leadership ..
.. POTUS does not know the meaning of these words . His Most Excellent Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan exudes them …
.. the Jordanians have always tried to steer a middle – of – the – road [more or less ] moderate course in the Middle East . In many cases , Jordan has been a leader in the peacekeeping and peacemaking processes . So , they know what is required , and they walk the walk ..
.. [h/t — Twitchy.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post / tweets ..
.. Jordan has really been shaken by the cruel and barbaric murder of their fighter pilot hero by I.S.I.L . I.S.I.L. thought that by doing this that they would try to intimidate the Jordanians … Boy , are they ever wrong.
.. now , the Jordanians are taking a lead role in the war against ISIL . They are setting an example for other Arab nations to follow . By doing so , they are also sending the U.S. a stern message : …
.. remember the old adage — Lead , Follow , or Get the [Bleep] Out of the Way !! …

.. Ted Cruz went to a conference , one that carried plenty of controversy …
.. yes , it was a conference of evangelical Christians . However , they were Middle Easterners , to boot . Worse , they were Lebanese and Palestinians . Not an easy audience to please …
.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the speech …
.. Ted had the guts to speak his mind . He did not shy away from either the subject material or the controversy . He went , he spoke , and he lead . Well done !! …
.. the audience did not like what he was saying [Cruz was vehemently pro – Israel] and they booed . Then , they continued to boo . However , Senator Cruz left the stage on his terms , not theirs . His doing so will put him in much better stead with the GOP leadership in Texas as well as in D.C. ….

.. [link] to the article …
.. when he does , he actually shows signs of understanding what the word ” leadership ” means . It is something that His Lordship has shown little inclination towards throughout his campaigns , and especially throughout his presidency …

.. being a leader is about needing to make a decision .
.. sometimes you have the time to make a cautious and deliberative decision ..
.. sometimes you do not …
.. also , you need to know what you know , and what you do not know .
.. supreme arrogance is not a good idea ..
.. unfortunately , Obama has it , and that is a big problem ..

.. His Lordship cannot make a decision to save his life .
.. may God in heaven help us all …

.. Bibi understood the problem .
.. Not that the ObamaCraps would listen , especially to him .
.. Israel has experience with things like this , guys . You can learn from them …
.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the news / video …
.. Bibi understood that if we completely pulled out , there would be a power vacumn in Iraq . We would not like what would happen when someone else(s) moved to fill it …

.. especially its browser products , Mozilla Firefox …
.. you might ask , why ?
.. [h/t — MoeLane]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..
.. because Mozilla succumbed to political correctness and forced out its C.E.O. . You might think , Whoopie , big [bleeping] deal …
.. well , in this case , it is . Brendan Eich chose his personal beliefs over his job . He was forced out . He was pushed out . Why ? He contributed to the campaign for California ‘ s Proposition 8 [pro – traditional marriage] … and that one was six years ago , in 2008 ….
.. so , he contributed to an issue campaign . It seems these days that there is a determined effort by radical gays , lesblians , and lefties to harass , intimidate , and beat down anyone that disagrees with them . That especially includes those who are involed in things that are supposdedly ” special to gays and lezzies , like Mozilla , and also have contributed time or money to causes like Proposition 8 ….
.. so , yes , these morons are using tactics that are far , far worse than McCarthyite in style or purpose … and they need to be called on it ….
.. they need to be hit in the pocketbook …. so hit them , and hit them hard . Boycott Mozilla , and dump its FireFox browser …

.. Condoleeza Rice is one of our country ‘ s most honoured and distinguished professionals . She has an up – from – the – bootstraps story that beats none . She is an amazing person , an amazing woman .
.. I am saddened by the fact that she chose not to become a mother . She instead devoted her life and her energies to her profession and to her career . She would have made a fantastic mother , and still will make a fantastic mother – figure …
.. How Rutgers University ‘ s faculty can behave the way that it is is beyond me . Dr. Rice has been chosen to be a commencement speaker at Rutgers ‘ graduation ceremony in May , and the faculty are in a lather about it . All because of her service in George W. Bush ‘ s administration …
.. How sick . She is the first Black Secretary of State , and the first Black National Security Adviser . If John McCain had any smarts , he would have chose her and not Sarah Palin as the Vice – Presidential nominee in 2008 . She is easily far more qualified to be President than our current occupant of the White House [Barack Obama] .

.. but he is playing a weak hand in a very strong fashion .
.. Russia ‘ s military is sorely in need of reform . Its navy is modernizing , but needs years of investment in its surface fleet and its training regime . The Russian Air Force is easily the most modern . It has a great deal of territory to cover , but does so with a small fleet of aircraft and aircrews . It could be larger , if Russia could afford it .
.. The Russian army is still sorely in need of a major overhaul . Russia ‘ s enlisted forces are largely a conscript force . The average Russian has to serve a 2 year hitch , and draft evasion is rampant . It would serve Russia well to convert to an all – volunteer force . At least then they would know that the people there are there willingly , and will serve their tours of duty .
.. Putin does not have as strong a force as he thinks that he might have . However , he is facing off against a very , very , very weak customer in Barack Obama . Obama is a wuss , and has no idea of strategic concepts , strategic planning , or leadership . Putin does , and is doing so to his best . If Putin were facing off against someone stronger , well then … . Well , he is not , and is taking maximum advantage …

… last night [Saturday , 02/01/2014] , Judge Jeanine Pirro took His Lordship aprrt in a masterpiece of media commentary . Judge Jeanine has been amped up before , but she did not need to be on this night . She showed true dignity and decency in taking POTUS to the woodshed , a whooping in which he richly deserved to get …

.. WOW ! ..
.. As you might expect , Bob Woodward of the Washington ComPost has the get . Former Defence Secretary Bob Gates has published a memoir on his years in public service , entitled [Duty] (Memoirs of a Secretary at War) . To say he pull no punches is a gross understatement …
.. Once again , WOW !
.. [h/t — the Washington ComPost]
.. [link] to Woodward ‘ s article ..
.. My first guess is that it does not damage the current cast in the White House as much as one might think . It comes from a former insider , and a former Defence Secretary at that . It serves as more like confirmation of what people had already suspected or thought that they knew about POTUS and VPOTUS . Big Shock .
.. Where the damage does come is towards VPOTUS and Miz Hillary . It was her bright idea for the ” 3 a.m. phone call ” political commercial . Boy , is she going to get it thrown back at her in spades . And she has it coming . Not only did Hillary but Obama too admit in front of Gates that their oppo to Pres Bush ‘ s 2007 Iraq Surge was not only political , but blatantly political . Such a confirmation of this leaves their judgement and their maturity open to question …
Gates has a reputation for being blunt , and boy , he does let fly …

.. POTUS is an aloof , arrogant , above – it – all S.O.B. .
.. [h/t http://www.theGatewayPundit.com]
.. [link] to Senator Manchin ‘ s comments , courtesy of CNN ‘ s ” State of the Union . ”
.. What leadership style ? He does not have one . He does not know the meaning of the word ..
.. It is to be thankful that (yes , amazingly) Patty Murray negotiated with Paul Ryan on the recent budget deal . Not that I am wild about it . i am not all that thrilled about it , though .
.. Tactically , it is not the best thing to happen . Strategically , though , it is , at least for the G.O.P. . The Dems are backpeddaling like crazy on ObamaCrapCare , and are forced to defend it . its problems and hiccups keep popping up every day , it seems . The Dems are dreading having to defend the bill during the election campaign , and are realizing that there will be fewer of them , and more of the GOP after November ‘ s elections .
