Our Weasel Of The Week!

Yes, once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner…the envelope please…


Puma By Design : My nominee for Weasel of the Week goes to Barack Hussein Obama who began politicizing the death of nine people killed at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week before rigor mortis set in (no disrespected intended, just trying to make a point).

I suspect that Obama‘s speech last week was actually written months ago, locked away in a desk in the Oval Office along with a batch of executive orders on gun control that the White House claims is being prepared for Obama’s signature.

From Breitbart:

“It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,’ White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today at the press briefing…
‘I can tell you that they’re not stumped, they’re continuing to review the law that’s on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,’ Earnest said…”

Obama’s been stewing like a petulant child since his 2013-failed attempt to overhaul the gun laws has been anxiously awaiting the perfect crisis to add another chapter to his legacy memoirs even though it means dancing on the graves of those killed by mentally unstable nut jobs nudged over the edge by several years of hateful conflict-ridden Marxist propaganda often espoused by Obama himself and his sock puppets in the mainstream media and streets of America.

Shakespeare had it right centuries ago. The fault is not in our stars but in ourselves in that we are underlings. And allow ourselves to be ruled in this fashion.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Video’s Of The Day: Matt Drudge Speaks and More

Matt Drudge Visits the Alex Jones Show: Full Interview:

Yeah, I know – Alex Jones. This is a first for me – but when the reclusive “media kingpin” Matt Drudge speaks, it’s worth listening to.

 “She’s old and she’s sick,” the Drudge Report founder said in an interview with Alex Jones.
 Drudge slammed the media for propping up Clinton’s candidacy.
“She’s not a contender. They’re making her a contender with these propped up Saturday Night Live things. It’s like a head on a stick,” he said, chiding NBC for “giving her endless hours of airtime.”
 The media mogul cited Clinton’s hypothyroidism as cause for concern.
“Anybody who is 70 years old who is hypothyroid, you do not elect president, ladies and gentlemen,” he said.
Drudge also mentioned her “sex affairs” which he said is a big story no one is talking about and alluded to his “long history” with the Clintons:
“They’re ugly. They play dirty. They sued me for $30 million last time around,” he said. “Hillary Clinton with the NSA — good luck if you dissent. Snowden, I’ll switch places with you.”
It’s a long, free wheeling interview. I would skip the first few minutes, though because it’s just Alex Jones talking about how shocked he is that Drudge is in the studio.

Louder With Crowder: Trey Gowdy Goes Off on GOP Leadership – “Kevin, You’re Wrong…”


On Monday, the Obama administration announced that President Obama would veto a defense authorization bill if it did not close down Guantanamo Bay. White House press secretary Josh Earnest explained that the House funding bill would be vetoed “principally because…of the irresponsible way that it funds our national defense priorities, but also because of the efforts to prevent the closure [of] the prison at Guantanamo Bay.” He added that Democrats would sustain Obama’s veto, and defense authorization would die.

Obama’s strong stand on Gitmo underscores two vital points. First, President Obama does not fear defunding America’s national security. Second, Obama does not fear Republicans in Congress.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has been authorized for five decades running. The current NDAA fully funds the military through a workaround measure, thanks to President Obama’s demands that a huge chunk of sequestration cuts come from defense funding. Now Democrats complain that the workaround measure isn’t good enough: Republicans should bust open the bank again.

But that’s not Obama’s main criticism of the NDAA. He has long had a bug in his ear with regard to Gitmo, which he feels has strengthened terrorists’ feelings about the evils of the United States. Given his recent moves to parlay with the Cuban dictatorship as well, Obama may want to hand Gitmo in totality back to the Cuban government. The fact that Obama would be willing to dramatically cut America’s military funding, even as Russia takes over Ukraine and Syria, as Iran gears up for a big regional military push, as China continues its aggressive behavior in the South China Sea, demonstrates Obama’s top priority is doing leftist work, not protecting the United States.

Saturday Movie Matinee: “The whole family is stupid and they duped us”

Gavin McInnis, Rebel Media#IStandWithAhmed: “The whole family is stupid and they duped us”:

“Al-Taqiyya” is the art of using lies and deception to promote Islam. Here in the West, we are so petrified of offending Muslims, all they have to do is sort of pretend that someone may have slighted them and we all drop to our knees and start apologizing.

“This kid was not making a clock and innocently taking it to school. He was committing a crime by deliberately taking a device to school that looked like a bomb. The entire world fell for it including the president of the United States. All they did was pull the guts out of an old alarm clock and throw it in a pencil box. It’s the farthest thing from a homemade clock (and not that far from a bomb).

“The more we cower in fear, the more powerful Islam gets. Islamophobia isn’t a scourge on Western culture. It’s a fake tool used by our enemies to overpower us. We need to stop being afraid of it and accept that being suspicious is part of war.”

The President, the Pope, and the U.N.


In 2006 John O’Sullivan wrote a book, The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister that detailed how the timely convergence of President Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the early eighties led the West to a peaceful resolution of the Cold War.

All three individuals were self-confident charismatic leaders who achieved greatness through dedication and hard work. Each believed that he had been created for a purpose. For Reagan it was to hasten and bring about the collapse of Communism. For John Paul II (at least in the political realm) it was his diplomatic offensive for religious liberty behind the Iron Curtain, especially in Poland. Thatcher was determined to transform “the sick old man of Europe” (a familiar epithet for Britain) into a dynamic land of enterprise and prosperity.

Working together, these three leaders defeated the Soviet Empire, and revived the economies and spirits of the West.

Now we have another convergence of world leaders, but they are the worst possible leaders at the worst possible time: a Marxist Alinskyite President, and a sanctimonious pope.

Via Watts Up With That:

The Middle East is imploding. Islamic State butchers are annihilating Christian and other communities. Putin is sending arms to Assad. Under the Obama-Iran nuclear deal, the mullahs will get $100+ billion to expand their proxy terror war on Israel and the West. Saudi Arabia has 100,000 empty air-conditioned tents but won’t take any of the millions who’ve been driven from their homes. Neither will most of the other 22 Arab League nations or 57 Organization of Islamic Cooperation member countries.

Instead, millions of mostly Muslim migrants, militants and refugees are heading to Europe – with limited money, education, job skills, or desire to assimilate. They demand entry into EU countries whose energy, economic, employment and welfare systems are already foundering or nearing collapse.

There is no shortage of dire issues for Barack Obama and Pope Francis to be focusing on. But as economies crumble, and the Middle East collapses, these two focus like a laser beam on what?


…climate change! It’s insanity on steroids. The alarmist assertions are absurd.

“Climate change is already disrupting our agriculture and ecosystems, our water and food supplies,” Obama recently inveighed. “If we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century.”

Projected by whom? Who concocts these fables? Nature-driven climate change has disrupted lives throughout human history. Seas have risen 400 feet since the last mile-thick glaciers melted off the northern half of Asia, Europe and North America. How did “imperiled” Pacific islands survive that?

Some Alaskan glaciers have been retreating for decades, but Hubbard is growing andGlacier Bay’s ice retreat began around 1750. Arctic sea ice has increased some 26% (400,000 square miles) since 2012, in a cycle that’s continued for millennia. The sea ice “was thick in the 1920s, thin in the 1930s and 1940s, thick again in the 1960s and 1970s, and thinner in recent decades,” oceanographer Igor Polyakov noted in 2004.

“Not only in the summer, but in the winter the [Bering Sea region] was free of ice, sometimes with a wide strip of water up to at least 200 miles away from the shore,” Swedish explorer Oscar Nordkvist reported in 1822. “We were astonished by the total absence of ice in the Barrow Strait,” Francis McClintock, captain of the Fox, wrote in 1860.“I was here at this time in 1854 – still frozen up – and doubts were entertained as to the possibility of escape.” How did cars and power plants cause all that?

Meanwhile Greenland’s ice mass has grown by some 200 cubic kilometers (48 cubic miles) just since 2014. Vikings built homes, grew crops and raised cattle in Greenland between 950 and 1300, before they were frozen out by the Little Ice Age and encroaching pack ice and glaciers. Antarctic sea ice set another record in May, the US National Snow and Ice Data Center reports, climbing 12% above the long-term 1981-2010 average, to reach 12.1 million square kilometers (800,000 square miles) – almost as much as Alaska and Texas combined!

If it’s global warming and climate change, shouldn’t melting phenomena be constant andglobal?

Pope Francis nevertheless plans to meet with President Obama September 23, to discuss “dangerous manmade climate change” and how to ensure “preferential treatment of the poor,” by building “clean” energy economies and stopping “carbon pollution.” Their concerns and solutions are illusory.

They disdain fossil fuels and capitalism – though they have brought greater health and well-being to more people than any other systems in history. They prefer the socialism, centralized government control, higher energy prices, fundamental economic transformations and wealth redistribution schemes advanced by the UN and Climate Crisis, Inc. By denying the world’s poorest people energy, jobs and economic growth, this agenda will sentence them to perpetual poverty, disease and early death. By mandating the use of biofuels, wind turbines and solar panels, it will turn food into fuel, increase malnutrition, convert wildlife habitats into enormous inefficient energy facilities, and kill countless millions of birds and bats.

The pope and president dismiss these impacts. They insist that climate change is a far worse problem, and that modern energy, housing and living standards for the world’s poor would not be “sustainable.” They believe “morality,” “climate justice” and “preferential treatment” mean protecting people from hypothesized, exaggerated and fabricated climate disasters 25, 50 or 100 years from now – by destroying millions of jobs and keeping the world’s poor energy-deprived and impoverished now and in perpetuity.

The “Freedom Team” of  Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Margaret Thatcher brought down the Evil Empire. That was a major accomplishment, and a great blessing for the entire world.

To deal with today’s threats, we have the sad Farce Team of Obama, Pope Francis and (in the absence of a strong, principled British Leader) the UN, which drives so much of the climate change agenda..

Even if they got lucky beyond their wildest dreams and managed to completely eliminate U.S. carbon emissions, it would not be scientifically detectable in global temperatures even by 2100.

Doesn’t exactly compare to tearing down the Berlin Wall, does it?

All it would do is make us poorer and less free – which makes them the polar opposite of the Freedom Team.

Benghazi Movie “13 Hours” To Be Released In January

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on January 15, 2016.

Via Newsbusters:

Judging from the movie trailer, this film directed by Michael Bay is exactly what Hillary doesn’t want the public to be reminded about. For one thing, it is pretty clear that the assault on the diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012 was not inspired by a mere video according to the trailer.  Also included in the trailer is a scene where the security team is told to stand down after the attack. Coming as it does at a crucial point in the election season, it is sure to inspire quite a bit of buzz. In fact it is already generating a lot of controversy judging from the many comments posted in the IMDB message board even though it is still almost four months away from being released.

If you haven’t seen the preview yet, it looks pretty good (though I think Hillary would beg to differ):

That Michael Bay really has a knack for making spontaneous demonstrations over a Youtube video look pretty intense, doesn’t he?
