Even In These Most Troubled Times, there ARE Blessings for Which We Conservative Extremists Can Be Thankful!

Although America is under the influence of a daft president who is partial to GITMO detainees, Syrian refugees statistically vulnerable to becoming soldiers in the ISIS war on humanity; uneducated, impoverished third-world illegal aliens who believe that speaking Spanish entitles one, by virtue of divine decree, to invade and occupy America, notwithstanding US borders, immigration laws, and the will of 330 million Americans; convicted felons, and others of low degree: conservatives have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Among the blessings for which we right-wing extremists are duty-bound to give thanks:
* Barack Obama is not a twin;
* To the extent that the Constitution is still relevant, the 22nd Amendment limits Obama’s tyrannical propensity to impose his ungodly “Fundamental transformation” on our beloved homeland beyond January, 2017;
*Donald Trump continues to dominate the field of Republican presidential aspirants, despite the machinations of the RNC, Jeb Bush, Karl Rove, and other RINOs in the GOP establishment;
*John Boehner no longer speaks in the US House!
*Hillary Clinton’s next federal abode is more likely to be Fort Leavenworth than the Oval Office;
*American voters are finally recognizing that CHANGE does not always mean better!
It’s not much, but it’s the best we can hope for at the present time.
So, relax and enjoy the season:

Socialist (Democrat) presidential candidate Bernie Sanders seems to be having second thoughts about saying to Hillary Clinton, “the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails” during the Democrat Party debate last month.
Sanders’ debate outburst seemed to put the issue at bay during the debate and surely helped Clinton rejuvenate her campaign, which was in the process of imploding, said rejuvenation resulting in a dramatic, negative impact on Sanders’ own race to succeed Barack Obama as the chief socialist in charge at the White House.
Finally recognizing the impact of his self-inflicted wounds, the feisty senior Senator has flip-flopped, at least partially, on the issue. As reported at the reference:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who declared during last month's Democratic presidential debate that "the American people are sick and tired" of hearing about Hillary Clinton's private email account, on Wednesday defended a federal probe into the matter and said it should continue.
“You get 12 seconds to say these things,” Sanders said referring to his comments at the debate. “There’s an investigation going on right now. I did not say, ‘End the investigation.’ That’s silly. ... Let the investigation proceed unimpeded.”
In one of the most memorable moments of the debate, Sanders chided the media for focusing on Clinton's email scandal instead of substantive policy issues.
"The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails!" he said, with Clinton nodding and smiling in agreement.
In Wednesday's interview, Sanders clarified that his comments were not meant to dismiss the controversy over Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. He said federal agencies examining Clinton's emails have raised “valid questions,” such as whether the emails contained classified information.
Sanders, with his lead in polls of early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire slipping, said he intends to go after Clinton more aggressively on the campaign trail. Though he insisted he won't attack Clinton personally, he has stepped up attacks on her policy positions, attempting to contrast himself as a more consistent progressive voice and paint Clinton as a political opportunist.
"It is important to see which candidates have the courage to cast tough votes, to take on very, very powerful interests," Sanders said.”
Welcome to the real world, Senator, and congratulations on your delayed moment of clarity about the e-mail travails of Hillary Clinton!
In the future, sir, it may be wise to take whatever time you need in excess of 12 seconds to respond intelligently and responsibly!
After all, the American people deserve your full attention and reasoned thought when it comes to the crucial election of 2016!

Much ado has been made of John Boehner’s long overdue exit from the US House, and rightly so. After all, Boehner has cast an unseemly blight over the Republican Party since the Speaker’s gavel was entrusted to his unsteady hands and care several years ago.
In a final poke in the eyes of real conservatives, Boehner dedicated his last days in office to “Cleaning the barn,” although his final surrender to the reckless tyranny of Barack Obama vis-à-vis the two year budget “deal” is actually a proliferation of deadly waste, with precious little cleaning obvious!
As such, Boehner’s “Barn cleaning” is all too much like the much-ballyhooed “Draining the swamp” farce boasted of by former Speaker Nancy Pelosi who, rather than reducing corruption, actually managed to flood the House with a tsunami of immoral, criminally-culpable Democrats, from which came a devastating legacy of political lawlessness that continues to haunt America to this day.
Of course Boehner’s promise was doomed to fail at the outset, even if his intentions had been honorable, given the fact that dealing with the political morass in Washington D.C. would necessarily require that Mitch McConnell also be removed from the US Senate, an act that Boehner could not unilaterally manage, regardless of how nasty the mess in the senior chamber.
Thus, we say farewell to the teary-eyed former Speaker and tormentor of conservative patriots, as he goes home to Ohio.
And we send our condolences to the good people of Ohio whom surely deserve better!

During the Pope’s historic visit to America last month, President Obama embarrassed himself, the nation, and faithful Christians all over the world with a childish stunt whereby a transvestite, a pro-choice nun, and a gay bishop, were assigned to a welcoming committee that greeted His Holiness on the lawn of the White House.
The designation of three Catholics whose lifestyles are in direct conflict with Catholic teachings advocated by the Pope was no doubt considered the “Right thing to do,” by Obama whose blind spot when it comes to religions (other than Islam) is increasingly inappropriate.
No doubt Obama was seeking to send a strong message to the Pope; however, that strategy appears to have failed, along with most of Obama’s other recent attempts to influence powerful leaders throughout the world.
Evidence that Obama’s advocacy of alternative lifestyles failed to sway Catholic dogma is borne out by the fact that the Church has “fired” a Polish priest for announcing that he is gay and calling for changes in church teachings with regard to homosexuals.
As reported at the reference:
“VATICAN CITY - The Vatican on Saturday dismissed a Polish priest from his Holy See job after he came out as gay and called for changes in Catholic teachings against homosexual activity on the eve of a major Church meeting on the family.
Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa, a theologian, had worked at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican's doctrinal arm, since 2003, and taught theology at pontifical universities in Rome, which have also dismissed him.
Charamsa, 43, told Italy's Corriere della Sera newspaper and Polish media that he was gay and had a partner. The Church teaches that homosexuality is not a sin but homosexual activity is, and priests, whether heterosexual or gay, take vows of celibacy.
Charasma followed up his media interviews with a packed news conference with his partner and gay activists at a Rome restaurant. They had planned a demonstration in front of the Vatican but changed the venue several hours before it was due to have started.
The Vatican said the dismissal had nothing to do with Charasma's reflections on his personal life, which it said "merit respect".
But it said his interviews and the planned demonstration was "grave and irresponsible" given their timing on the eve of a synod of bishops who will discuss family issues, including the Church's position on gays.
The Vatican said his actions were aimed at subjecting the synod, which Pope Francis opens on Sunday, to "undue media pressure". He presided at prayer vigil for the synod on Saturday night before tens of thousands of people in St Peter's Square.”
Once again, Barack Obama’s vicious war on Christian values results in utter failure!

Barack Obama’s much lauded “coolness” has apparently been rattled by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
As reported at the reference, The Donald seems to have struck a raw nerve in the overly sensitive, child-like psyche of Barack Obama:
“I’m here to say there’s nothing particularly patriotic or American about talking down America,” Obama said in a clear reference to Donald Trump.
Obama also had a response to Trump’s controversial slogan, Make America Great Again: “America is great right now. America is winning right now.”
Once again, Obama’s bloated ego and world-class vanity cloud his vision and judgment.
What The One fails to recognize is that when GOP candidates speak of America’s weakness and decline they are not lambasting America---rather, they are pointing out the singular failure of Obama to lead and govern effectively!
It’s YOUR flawed policies and failed leadership that are the problem, Mr. President!
