‘It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy’: Obama goes AWOL again with just 40-second mention of Malaysian plane crash feared to have killed Americans before his jokey 16-minute transport speech.
President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure. There are no confirmed American dead, an earlier Reuters report claimed that it was feared that as many as 23 U.S. citizens had perished. Obama declared in Wilmington, Delaware that ‘it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy,’ but not before enthusiastically declaring that ‘it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.’
‘Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border. And it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Right now we’re working to determine whether there were American citizens on board. That is our first priority.’ ‘And I’ve directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian government. The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why. And as a country, our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and passengers, wherever they call home.
Obama then quickly returned to his prepared remarks. ‘I want to thank Jeremie for that introduction’ he said. ‘Give Jeremie a big round of applause.’ ‘It is great to be in the state that gave us Joe Biden. We’ve got actually some better-looking Bidens with us here today. We’ve got Beau and his wife, Hallie, are here. Give them a big round of applause. We love them.’ ‘It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy’: Obama goes AWOL again with just 40-second mention of Malaysian plane crash feared to have killed Americans before his jokey 16-minute transport speech.
I have no real comment to make, as I find this man utterly despicable. Yours Aye.
New emergency alert system will give Obama the power to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once.
The Obama administration ‘quietly’ announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once.
The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.
Every broadcaster in the country is required to participate in the EAS. Messages travel along a closed, private network, piggybacking from station to station. It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to blare its alert. ‘Big Brother is talking to you!’
The slippery slope, and the socialists/communists favourite weapon of choice; propaganda!
We too have the left-wing socialist BBC (British Bull-s**t Corporation,) whose role in wartime, or time of crisis, is to
spread propaganda to enlighten the general public and allay their fears. Aló Presidente (right) famously used his original one hour slot to spout ‘nonsense niff-naff and trivia’ for the good of himself and the people of socialist Venezuela. But, hey! Barry and his circus can be trusted, they would ‘never’ abuse such an emergency system for political gain… Desperate times, desperate measures, desperate men! Yours Aye.

Jeezus wept, have these people got rocks for brains? What next; a ‘costa china clayppachino’ made from clay scraped from an ox ‘s hoof as it leaves the paddy field! Who lays awake all night thinking up these stupid ideas… Yours Aye.
The Thing With Two Heads! 1972 film ‘Starring’ Roosevelt Grier & Ray Milland. ‘A rich but racist man is dying and hatches an elaborate scheme for transplanting his head onto another man’s body. His health deteriorates rapidly, and doctors are forced to transplant his head onto the only available candidate: a black man from death row.’ The Thing With Two Heads; Trailer. Rated PG. 1972I am so glad this film popped up on LiveLeak, it brought so many memories flooding back. Quick Dit: Mid 80′s era. 40 CDO RM deployed to Otterburn Ranges for a fortnight’s live firing package. Each evening after supper there would be a clatter-clatter (reel to reel) film shown in the main dining hall. Every one was ready and seated to watch Gallipoli The lights dimmed; a cheer went out; and there before our eyes in full Technicolor appeared ‘The Thing With Two Heads?’ Some clown had switched the films and ripped us off! Second Parachute Regiment as it happened, who were now watching Gallipoli instead, as they had placed an expressive note inside one of the cans admitting guilt… Barstewards!
The cheers turned to groans, as the innocent volunteer ‘projectionist’ fell under a hail of beer tins. With nothing else to do (days of pre-digital) the majority of us remained seated and watched stupefied as the ‘epic’ rolled on, and on. I have never heard so much raucous laughter in all of my life… The film was so painfully awful to watch, yet hilarious at the same time due to its clichés and story line. For those amongst you who may well have missed this classic – fear not!
“Ladies & Gentlemen, as well as children accompanied by a responsible adult; I present to you the film in full.” The Thing With Two Heads Yours Aye.
Pentagon to pink slip thousands of soldiers including some still serving in Afghanistan as part of spending cuts. Thousands of U.S. military, many still serving in the deadly war zones of Afghanistan, will be laid off as the Pentagon enforces mandatory spending cuts.Fox News reports that roughly 2,600 captains and other officers will receive ‘pink slip’ letters with even more expected to be let go after that. The controversial move is part of a larger plan to reduce the number of U.S. soldiers from 520,000 to 450,000, said Defense Department officials. The decision to lay off soldiers in active combat has been called not only bad for morale but outright dangerous. ‘It puts the soldier, the soldier’s family and the men under his command at risk,’ said retired Major Gen. Robert Scales, who is now a Fox News contributor. ‘Young officers look at each other and wonder who is next. Pentagon to pink slip thousands of soldiers
I have a good mate who received his ‘ticket’ for civvie street whilst serving in Afghanistan, which was totally unexpected, and then he had to crack on as though nothing had happened. Had he not been made of firmer stuff it could well of ruined him; having just taken on a mortgage with a newborn on the way what must have gone through his mind?
Well dear American friends, here is the solution to the problem with the border that Obama has failed to fix. The good soldiers who have been pink ticketed could very well take on the role, a semi-military border force requiring hot experienced personnel will resolve the nightmare. So some one tell the top brass to stop giving away the mighty military vehicles to the country’s police forces, there could soon be a real force to be reckoned with, and they know how to use the machines correctly! Yours Aye. Every pink ticket recipient is a nail in Obama’s coffin.
Man, 75, who killed his wife over lentil dinner ‘should have reduced sentence because there’s no Pakistani food in prison’, his lawyers claim. A Pakistani immigrant who killed his wife for feeding him lentils should be given a short sentence because the lack of home-style food will make jail ‘difficult’, a court was told. Noor Hussein, 75, beat his wife to death with a stick in their New York apartment in 2011, and was convicted of the killing in May. Earlier the New York Supreme Court heard how he lashed out at Nazar Hussein, 66, because she made him a vegetarian lentil dinner instead of cooking goat. In papers submitted to the court, prosecutors said: ‘The defendant asked [his wife] to cook goat and [his wife] said she made something else.The conversation got louder and his wife disrespected defendant by cursing at defendant and saying motherf***** and that the defendant took a wooden stick and hit her with it on her arm and mouth.’ And food again returned to the centre of the trial in arguments over sentencing – when defense lawyers for Hussein said he should be given a shorter sentence because of the hardship of doing without Pakistani food. Pakistani immigrant, 75, killed his wife over lentil dinner-seeks reduced sentence over lack of food choice in prison.
What planet are these defence lawyers from? If they truly wish to see their client serve a shorter compassionate sentence, then ask for an immediate and swift execution, in accordance with the clients wishes! A simple win-win situation for every one… Yours Aye.
“Why don’t you guys just make it out of chicken?” RT America’s Redacted Tonight presents a commercial jingle for McDonald’s that lists the ingredients for Chicken McNuggets, as stated by… McDonald’s Mmmm ‘enjoy!’
Call me old fashioned if you will, but I much prefer chicken bought from my local farm shop, which is field to plate bred, and not bloat injected with water or soaked in additives or preservatives. Yours Aye.

Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the most useless of them all? Obama rated WORST president since WW2 in embarrassing poll.
Americans think sitting President Barack Obama is the nation’s worst leader since the last World War, according to a poll released this morning. ‘A poll is required to state the bleeding obvious?‘ A third of Americans singled-out Obama as their least favorite president since 1945 in Quinnipiac University’s latest presidential poll, just ahead of George W. Bush, who received 28 percent of the vote.
In a head-to-head match-up between the two most recent presidents, Bush and Obama, Bush narrowly came out the victor, with 40 percent of survey-takers saying he was a better president than Obama and 39 percent saying he was worse. Obama rated WORST president since WWII in embarrassing poll
The White House struggled to defend the president’s bad showing in the Quinnipiac poll when a reporter broached the subject this afternoon at
Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf (Comical Ali) John Earnest’s daily briefing. Absolutely priceless video clip in the link!
Thank Gawd for the historical keepsakes provided by the White House circus clowns. They will be a reminder for years to come on just how bad Obama and his regime really were. Yours Aye.

Scottish soldier who died in Vietnam war fighting alongside Australian forces to have his name added to new memorial in Washington – but only if his relatives can be traced. Military historians are desperate to trace relatives of a Scottish soldier who died in the Vietnam War to get their permission for his name to be added to a new memorial. Lance Corporal Robert Buchan fought with Australian forces and died, aged 22, in a hail of AK47 bullets after ordering his men to take cover as he scouted an enemy position.
Now officials in the U.S. want to recognise his sacrifice in a new ‘Wall Of Faces’ memorial to be erected next to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, DC.
But his name can only be added with the permission of his relatives, none of whom have so far been traced. L/Cpl Buchan first emigrated with his family to Australia in 1951, when he was 13. His family returned to Scotland nine years later, but he decided to return to Australia alone in 1966. Two years later, he signed up for the army and was assigned to the 6th Battalion, the Royal Australian Regiment. The machine gunner from Dundee was a piper but refused to join the army’s band, preferring to serve in a combat unit, where he was known to comrades as ‘Jock’. The regiment began its tour of duty in Vietnam in May 1969. In December of the same year the battalion located and destroyed a large cache of Viet Cong explosives at Phuoc Tuy. It was there that L/Cpl Buchan died.
‘Robert was commanding his section along a well-used track when his forward scout signalled the location of a bunker 15 metres in front,’ said Richard Cousins, an Australian military historian. ‘He went forward to investigate and directed a second forward scout into position on either side of the track. ‘The enemy opened fire from a distance of 10 metres, hitting Robert with small arms fire.’ Historians believe that had it not been for L/Cpl Buchan’s decision to stop his platoon, many of his men would have been killed. Scottish soldier who died in Vietnam war fighting alongside Australian forces to have his name added to new memorial in Washington
Rest easy there bonnie lad; I have just done a surface skim and found 22 Buchan’s listed in the telephone directory, as well as 170 listed within the electoral roll. Each live in Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. You will be remembered and honoured on the new memorial in Washington, even if I have to drive up there myself and knock on every bloody door… Yours Aye. There was a soldier a Scottish soldier…
The following 7 minute clip is well worth watching in my humble opinion. Those that voted for Obama (twice?) may well consider watching it, as it may well sway your mind from voting for him or his like ever again. Ex-Senior Airman Brian Kolfage created this powerful clip, and in doing so exposes Obama and his fraudulent socialist spinning lies…Forget Obama and his socialist doctrine; We Have The Winning Argument; Brian Kolfage
At the 5 minute mark my spirit was lifted by a great American speaking from the grave, I believe those of you watching the clip will feel the same way… Yours Aye.

Chauffeur got a night off, Mr Ambassador? America’s man in London hops on the Tube – to watch The Eagles at the O2. He may be one of America’s political elite, but US Ambassador Matthew Barzun has shown an astute grip of how best to connect with ordinary folk – by taking the London Underground.
While former ambassadors travelled by chauffeured limousine with darkened windows, Mr Barzun opted to travel by Tube to the O2 Arena last Friday night to watch veteran rock group The Eagles.
It is a fitting mode of transport for the new ‘dress-down’ ambassador. Mr Barzun, 43, is the youngest-ever American envoy to the UK and has a ‘down with the kids’ attitude. Since he arrived with his wife Brooke and three young children to take up the post in August last year, he has beguiled visitors by dressing in denim and hosting parties at his official ten-bedroom residence, Grade II listed Winfield House, in the capital with a beer can in his hand rather than a champagne flute. He even dishes out Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
It’s not the first time he has travelled by Tube: days earlier he tweeted a picture he took inside a carriage when travelling to meet US Secretary of State John Kerry and British Foreign Secretary William Hague.
Methinks Mr. Ambassador better have a re-think over his ‘getting down and looking cool’ on London’s public transport; he may well end up being ‘taken down like a fool’ by those from the islamic extremist quarter. What a propaganda gift that would prove to be for the ill-disposed… Yours Aye. Original story by Jo Knowsley Daily Mail
