In 1986, at the closing session of the Communist Party shindig in the Karl Marx Theater in Havana, Castro had declared, “Let no one think that what I have here is a lengthy speech; it is the party’s program.” He then went on to speak for 7 hours and 10 minutes.
Obama’s ridiculous 6600-word marathon is also not a lengthy speech; it is the party’s program.
As out of touch with the rest of the country as if he were speaking at the Karl Marx Theater in Havana, Obama claimed that spending was under control, the national debt was no longer a problem, the war in Afghanistan had been won, the economic recovery was here, unemployment was fading and Al Qaeda was a shadow of its former self.
There were more calls to fix all those broken bridges, which he had somehow been unable to fix for four years, despite running trillion dollar deficits. And finally a proposal to really help the economy take off by legalizing 11 million illegal aliens and thereby doubling the unemployment rate in a single year.
Any Diogenes in the audience taking it upon himself to shout “liar” at every lie would have worn out his vocal chords in a matter of minutes.
Obama finds his Inner Castro, Lets It Out to Play on National Television.
Not many people have focused in on the insanely arrogant conclusion to Obama’s whopper of a speech which compared a woman who waited on line to cast her vote for him, with a wounded police war and a woman who looked after newborns during Hurricane Sandy.
In Obama’s America, waiting on line for hours is the new heroism. Sure saving babies and stopping a gunman is nice, but what really matters is voting for more free stuff. And waiting on line is fine for unimportant things, like waiting to see a doctor, but not for important things, like voting for Obama.
“I’m very happy, very proud,” she said, communicating through a translator because she speaks only Haitian Creole.
Is there some moral heroism in ripping off a country that you have never worked in and whose language you have never even learned?
Voting for Obama is Just Like Saving Babies or Being Wounded in the Line of Duty
SHOULD CHRIS DORNER BE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE IN 2016?
While on the surface this may sound like a risky proposition, let’s think about it for a minute.
In his manifesto, Chris Dorner expressed his support for moderate Republicans like Jim Huntsman and Chris Christie, even calling Hunsman his candidate of choice. Dorner is obviously a liberal Republican and we can’t afford to pass up a minority member who is also a moderate Republican.
Dorner’s candidacy could be just what the Republican Party needs to turn its image around. I know all the negatives, but let’s look at the positives first.
Chris Dorner supports gun control and writes about evolving on gay marriage. He’s well versed in pop culture and made his manifesto go viral. Those are important skills in a candidate. While we don’t know his position on immigration, it’s quite possible that despite his dislike of Asians and Mexicans, he might actually be for it making him the perfect moderate Republican.
His support for Obama shows that Dorner has real bipartisan chops and could be able to unite the country after years of petty bickering.
Unfortunately Dorner is dead, but that’s no reason to rule out his candidacy. Running Dorner in 2016 is no crazier than the Republican establishment trying to legalize 11 million Democratic voters or sections of the Conservative blogsphere trying to follow Pat Buchanan into the Leftist Anti-War camp.
I have seen more positive mentions of Glenn Greenwald in one week on conservative blogs than I have in ten years, as bloggers educate themselves on the Great Satan’s murderous Drone Rampage against innocent Muslim women and children and they can shortly be expected to begin understanding why the 3,000 people killed on September 11 had it coming and how Israel starts all the wars.
So why not Chris Dorner? If we’re going to commit political, moral and intellectual suicide, let’s go out in moderate Republican style. The platform is already coming together. Yes to illegal immigration. No to killing terrorists. No to burning serial killers alive in cabins. Yes to internet gambling. Yes to legalizing marijuana. No to the pink elephants in the corner. Yes to peace in our time.
MUSLIM VALENTINE’S DAY IS VERY DIFFERENT
A man has killed his pregnant teenage sister in south Lebanon in what was seen as an honor crime – the murder of a woman accused of shaming her family.
Later on Friday, LBCI television reported that the investigation with Jihad revealed that he had raped his sister, which lead to her pregnancy.
“He confessed to raping his sister,” LBCI said, adding that Jihad claimed he was drunk when the incident happened.
The television channel added that he had only recently found out about the pregnancy and asked his sister to undergo an abortion, but she refused.

LOVE CONQUERS COW
You might be tempted to confuse this tale with Romeo and Juliet. And it is a lot like Romeo and Juliet, or it would be if Juliet’s father had traded her for a cow.
Ali. O, like so many enterprising Korkunians, one afternoon during the Muslim commemoration of Ramadan, decided to make the deal of a lifetime with the stepson of his brother. The stepson would get his daughter and Ali would get a cow. The stepson delivered the cow and now it was time for the next part of the deal.
“I promised, I took the cow. Now you have to get married,” Ali O. told his daughter Guller O.
Like all romantic heroines, Guller did not want to be traded for a cow and fled to her aunt’s house in Ankara, where Ali began making threatening phone calls to her insisting that she go through with the wedding.

YOU MUST BE THIS TALL TO FALL OFF THIS RIDE
Every job has a minimum requirement. The absolute very least that anyone can do without being considered a complete and utter failure.
The minimum requirement for a Commander-in-Chief is to stick around when an American diplomatic mission is under fire. Obama flunked even this minimal requirement by going to sleep and then flying off for a fundraiser in Vegas.
The minimum requirement for a Secretary of State is to at least pretend to care why such an attack took place. Hillary Clinton failed that minimum requirement by declaring that it didn’t matter why the attack happened.
The minimum requirement for a Vice President is to avoid becoming a national embarrassment. Biden has failed miserably at that.

LIVING DIVERSITY EVERY DAY
The fight, students say, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8 percent of students who are Somali Americans and the 20 percent who are African Americans.
Another student, Symone Glasker, said that an initial fight happened during the school’s first lunch period. She said the fights were over pride.
“I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,” she said. “They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.”
She also said “boys were hitting girls” and that some people were lying on the floor, with their hands over their heads, in surrender.
Stan Alleyne, the Minneapolis Public Schools chief of communications, gave a statement, saying South High is a school that continually makes the district proud.
“South is a very diverse high school,” Alleyne said. “It is a microcosm of the city. Students function together at a high level every day. That is the strength of this school. Our students live diversity every day.”
This is Minneapolis. This is Minneapolis on diversity.
