The Pathetic Pliance of the US by the Press

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/09/13/reports-islamic-state-releases-video-of-hostage-beheading/15595887/On our local news in LA, I heard at minute 17 of a 30 minute news broadcast that "another person was beheaded by ISIS".  That's about all they said - like, oh and it will be sunny tomorrow.

This is pathetic.  The mainstream press does not care about dangers affecting our country and others. It would rather comment on Ray Rice, Kim Kardashian and other nonsense.

We are Rome.  And it's burning.

Hillary on ABC

What difference does any of this make?
I've watched just five minutes and I want to vehemently projectile vomit on the TV.  Hillary is full of non-sequitors, women-issue defensive language and just middle of the road krap.  What a load.

And as for Benghazi?  She sluffed it off saying she "hired experts" to handle that.  In fact, she handles this whole part of the interview frankly badly   It's embarrassing.  We know what she did - and knew.

President Incompetant

Anything for a photo op...when I'm in trouble
 
President Obama announced on Saturday in the Rose Garden that he traded 5 major Taliban terrorists for a suspected deserting PFC held captive for 5 years.  With him were his parents, one who seemed to support releasing all Gitmo prisoners and also thanked Allah.  Just on the face of that photo op - this seemed somewhat perplexing.  They even broke into "I Love Lucy" (an LA Saturday afternoon staple) out here to bring us this news.  The initial reaction was "man, this guy won't stop for any photo op".

And of course the preceding month leading up to this had Congress establishing a special committee to investigate Benghazi (where we did leave military people behind), the economy contracting by 1% in the first quarter of this year and the explosion of the VA scandal (an issue that Obama claimed that he substantiated his Presidency on - but which he has done nothing).  On Friday his VA Secretary was fired and his Press Secretary stepped down.  Not a good time.  (And Obamacare is still bad, the IRS scandal is still there, Russia is in Crimea, et al). 

So Saturday he trots out these poor parents and announces this swap for five terrorists?  I couldn't even believe this was on TV!  And they thought this would be good news?  The press is all over this massive miscalculation and tone-deafness in this administration.  He traded 5 high ranking radicals for a deserter?  His fellow army corpsmen have come on TV saying he should be court
martialed or even face the firing squad!  Six soldiers lost their lives looking for this fool.  And even on Sunday morning that purveyor of truth Susan Rice said he served with "honor and distinction"!?  Who gave her the "talking points" this time?

Later asked about this, as he made his way abroad to Poland, Obama claimed that the " US leaves no man behind"  Tell that to the Benghazi victims.  This man is unbelievably incompetent - and for this act alone - and his cavalier approach to the world stage and our security - should be now be seriously considered for impeachment.  The man cares nothing for the country at all - and is a disgrace to the office.

Bad Music Awards 2014

She can sing damn good....
The Grammys 2014 - and the pop music scene in general - were (and are) so bad that I actually switched to see the Batchelor wedding of Sean and whatshername from time to time on ABC.  Even while the music scene has had its immeasurable lows recently you could almost always count on a great Grammy's show as they have strived to place great performances on stage - usually with impressive team-ups of performers you wouldn't expect to play together.  It wasn't all awful - but it was a pretty uninspiring bunch - and when a bunch of DJ's win best album - well what does that tell you?

But Taylor Swift was just fantastic.
