HopeyChangey results are in

"Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago".

"For the second week in a row, 25% of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey for the week ending July 13".

How's that HopeyChangey thing working out?

Obama foreign policy meets reality

Stilton Jarlsberg nails it yet again:

Obama, the speed bump to exceptional American history

A community organizer versus a former KGB spy master. Bambi vs. Godzilla. A rowboat vs. the Death Star. A fat chicken vs. Perdue Farms. You get the picture. What saves Obama's tokus is the very real fact the American people and their military are second to none. Obama is an inconvenient speed bump on the path of American exceptionalism.~~YOSSARIAN.

Democrat Senator not impressed by present presidential leadership

“We should be looking at the future, we should have a vision for the future, we should be able to help the world, but we should be taking care of ourself and making ourself strong first. And you lead by example,” he continued. “We’re not leading. We’re just getting pulled in all different directions and there’s not a clarity of who is the United States of America and what do they stand for.”~~Senator Joe Manchin (D., W. Va.)

Historical confusion

So 3rd world invasion in Texas, bubonic plague in Denver, 

and water riots in Detroit. Can't tell if it's 399, 1399 or 

1899.~~Tweet from David "Iowahawk" Burge.

Intercepted phone calls may point to pro-Russian separatists in downing of jet

Intercepted phone calls purportedly between Russian military intelligence officers and members of a pro-Russian separatist group that appear to capture the moment the rebels realized the plane they shot down was a civilian passenger plane could be the smoking gun that helps prove Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was downed Ukraine by the insurgents.
The tapes were released by SBU, Ukraine's security agency, and transcript was published in the Kiev Post. It appears to capture the chaotic moments after the plane was shot down — and the realization that it was a passenger plane rather than a Ukrainian transport plane, which had been targeted in recent days by the Russia-backed separatists.
"We have just shot down a plane," says a man the SBU identified as Igor Bezler, a Russian military intelligence officer and leading commander of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic. 
That call came just 20 minutes after the crash and was placed to a person identified by Ukraine’s SBU as a colonel in the main intelligence department of the general headquarters of the armed forces of the Russian Federation Vasili Geranin, according to Ukraine security officials.

Germany, 1; Argentina, 0. World Cup final.

The beauty of sports: Germany beat somebody else and no Panzer tanks were involved.

Coldest Antarctic June EVER

 Eric Worrall reporting for Watt's Up With That.com:
Antarctica continues to defy the global warming script, with a report from Meteo France, that June this year was the coldest Antarctic June ever recorded, at the French Antarctic Dumont d’Urville Station.
According to the press release, during June this year, the average temperature was -22.4c (-8.3F), 6.6c (11.9F) lower than normal. This is the coldest June ever recorded at the station, and almost the coldest monthly average ever – only September 1953 was colder, with a recorded average temperature of -23.5c (-10.3F).

Note to Climate Warming Alarmists: please, please send another ship down to the Antarctic to get stuck in the ice. Your episode of doing the same earlier in the year amused my greatly. I need a laugh.~~YOSSARIAN.

Obama polls well with Muslims

Borders, who needs them? Apparently, every other country but the U.S.

Are Italians also French citizens? No, they have a border. Are Germans also Polish citizens? No, they have a border. Are Mexicans also Guatemalan citizens? No. they have a border. Are all South Americans and Latin Americans U.S. citizens? Yes, if you have the same mental disorder that Nancy Pelosi and Obama have.~~YOSSARIAN.

Reality creeping into the brains of more Democrats

"He's so close to the border. And let me say this: when I saw, and I hate to use the word bizarre, but under the circumstances, when he is shown playing pool in Colorado, drinking a beer, and he can't even go 242 miles to the Texas border..."~~Democratic Rep. Cuellar (TX)

Another sad case of a Democrat who has not figured Obama out yet. The poor guy still believes that HopeyChangey farm pile from 2008.~~YOSSARIAN

Eighty-two people shot in Chicago last weekend; fourteen are dead


Eighty-two people were shot in Chicago last weekend–14 died. That's a lot of violence for a city with strict gun control laws. When will the parents in Chicago start loading up their kids on buses and trains heading for refugee processing camps in AZ and CA? Their kids will be safer, and those children can attend the schools paid for by taxpayers in both states–you know, the same thing we're doing for the current flood of Latin American "refugees".~~YOSSARIAN
