“Any discussion about the future of Ukraine must include the legitimate government of Ukraine. In 2014, we are well beyond the days when borders can be redrawn over the heads of democratic leaders.” – Barack HUSSEIN Obama
Bloviations…bloviations and NOTHING more for words are cheap when NOT backed up by action…military action…period.
And while Obama bloviates on and on it appears, at least on the surface, that Crimea does want to become part of Russia, with Russia saying it would welcome Crimea with open arms, especially since 60% of Crimea’s population are ethnic Russians. But Ukraine and the U.S. are poo-pooing the fact that on March 16th, Crimea will hold a referendum on whether to join Russia or remain part of Ukraine, with a ballot in Russian, Ukrainian, and Crimean Tatar that reads in part, “Are you for the reaffirmation of the constitution of the Crimean Republic of 1992 and for Crimea’s status as part of Ukraine?”

In early May 1865, the Confederacy was in its last throes. Robert E. Lee had surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia a month earlier. According to the History of Irwin County, Confederate president Jefferson Davis, along with his family and a party of escorts, held the Confederacy’s last cabinet meeting at the home of Robert Toombs in Washington, Ga. It was decided that Davis and his family should make for a port where they could sail for safety in England. From Washington, the group moved southwest, eventually making camp just north of Irwinville, Ga.
Unbeknownst to the Davis and his party, the group was being trailed by members of the First Wisconsin and Fourth Michigan cavalry regiments of the Union army. The Yankees split into two groups, one reaching Irwinville ahead of Davis and doubling back while the other followed the Confederates.
“Israel will give 1/3 of its land to the Arabs, when America gives 1/3 of its land back to the Indians.”
Former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to then-President Jimmy Carter
NO doubt about it…Barack HUSSEIN Obama and John Kerry are traitors…traitors to America and traitors to Israel. And while we all know how Obama feels about Israel…NO need to state the obvious concerning his lies, his backstabbing, his siding with those out to wipe Israel off the map…now Israel has been dealt an added headache what with John Kerry being thrown into the mix of lies and deceit concerning and directed towards the Jewish state.

Then Sen. Obama receives a briefing on Iraq from Gen. David Petraeus in 2008. (DOD)
Iraq’s slide back into chaos has its roots in 2011 when the last U.S. soldiers left the country. The Obama Administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had been engaged in months of negotiations in an attempt to reach a new status of forces agreement that would allow American soldiers to remain in Iraq to help support government forces. (The Bush Administration had signed a status of forces agreement that required U.S. combat troops to leave Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.) When these talks failed, the stage was set for President Obama to fulfill his campaign promise to remove U.S. forces and end the war in Iraq.
Unfortunately, as pointed out by the Atlanta Conservative Examiner, it was much easier to remove U.S. troops than to end the war. President Obama’s assumption was that American forces were the cause of the fighting in Iraq and that if American forces were removed, the war would end. That turned out not to be the case, partly because of Iran.

Cult Hero of the 70s, Tom Laughlin, AKA Billy Jack has died at home. He was 82. Laughlin made his first Billy Jack film in 1967, the very forgettable, “The Born Losers”, where he takes on a motorcycle gang. Then in 1971, he did a sequel, simply called, “Billy Jack.” Hollywood refused to distribute the movie, so Laughlin rented movie houses to show it. It was like discovering gold and there were two more sequels about Billy Jack and the Native American Freedom School, he protected.
It only took three-percent of the population to win independence from Great Britiain. Today our freedom is in jeopardy again, and a recent poll shows that nearly ten times that percentage of the population believes an armed revolution may be necessary to preserve liberty.
According to a poll conducted April 22-28, 2013 by Fairleigh Dickinson University, nearly one-third of Americans believe that another armed revolt could become necessary within the next few years to preserve liberty and protect individual rights.
Another country heard from. A day after liberal political columnist Cynthia Tucker offered up her best dog-ate-homework explanation for why Barack Obama deserves only some of the blame for lying through his teeth to the American people about the fate of their health care policies, along comes Michael Cohen of the Century Foundation, a progressive think tank, to try his hand at conjuring.
Like Tucker’s, Cohen’s feat of alchemy, which appears in New York’s Daily News, mentions the fact-checking website Politifact as the ultimate truthometer. He quotes their report that Obama “said at least 34 times that ‘if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.’ That statement,” Cohen goes on to add, “was not completely true, and it’s a lie that is today causing the President no end of political headaches.”
But if you study history, you find that many of the truths we know are actually false. For instance, George Washington was not the first president of the United States. He was actually the fourtenth president. You have to understand that what made us a country was the Declaration of Independence. And that was the beginning of our country. The first president was actually an interim president. His name was Thomas McKean, who filled the position before John Hanson of Maryland, the first elected president took office. Hanson wasted no time and established the Great Seal of the United States, created the first treasury department, the first secretary of war, threw out all foreign troops other than the British, and designated the fourth Thursday in November as a national holiday known as Thanksgiving. Some more famous persons held the title of president such as John Hancock who served twice as president and Richard Henry Lee, grandfather of Robert E Lee.
