Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Technician 5th Grade Robert D. Maxwell


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on 7 September 1944, near Besancon, France. Technician 5th Grade Maxwell and 3 other soldiers, armed only with .45 caliber automatic pistols, defended the battalion observation post against an overwhelming onslaught by enemy infantrymen in approximately platoon strength, supported by 20mm. flak and machinegun fire, who had infiltrated through the battalion's forward companies and were attacking the observation post with machinegun, machine pistol, and grenade fire at ranges as close as 10 yards. Despite a hail of fire from automatic weapons and grenade launchers, Technician 5th Grade Maxwell aggressively fought off advancing enemy elements and, by his calmness, tenacity, and fortitude, inspired his fellows to continue the unequal struggle. When an enemy hand grenade was thrown in the midst of his squad, Technician 5th Grade Maxwell unhesitatingly hurled himself squarely upon it, using his blanket and his unprotected body to absorb the full force of the explosion. This act of instantaneous heroism permanently maimed Technician 5th Grade Maxwell, but saved the lives of his comrades in arms and facilitated maintenance of vital military communications during the temporary withdrawal of the battalion's forward headquarters.


Technician 5th Grade Maxwell: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Valerie Jarrett on the Intellectually Challenged Barack Obama*

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

*And we're not talking about his bowling skills.

"I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is...He knows how perceptive hs is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability -- the extraordinary, uncanny ability -- to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them, and make sense out of them, and I think he has never been really challenged intellectually. I mean, he's the kind of guy you'd hate in law school, who would pick up the book the night before the final, read it, [buy a crib sheet from someone ] and ace the test. So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but someone with extraordinary talents that they had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy."
-Valerie Jarrett, [Editor's commentary ]

Obama's closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett made the above comment to David Remnick, in an interview for his book, “The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama.” May I say, what complete and utter hogwash! How does that work out in the real world?

If the President is soooooo smart that he is perpetually bored, because nothing challenges his 'intellectual superiority', then why can't he solve any of America's problems? Why have his 'solutions' only made things worse?? Let's examine the fruit of Barack's Intellectual Gifts & Supposed Intellectual Superiority (BIG SIS):

Candidate Obama said he would go through the budget line by line to eliminate waste and fraud, you'd think that BIG SIS would have the ability to discern those things better than anyone else. Yet, the only way he can claim to have reduced the deficit is by fraudulent math and deception.

Unemployment? Shouldn't BIG SIS be able to discern on his own what John Kennedy had discovered over fifty years ago, that tax cuts stimulate the economy and job growth? Syria? Edward Snowden? Benghazi? The Arab Spring??

And what about his signature piece of legislation "Obamacare"? Wouldn't someone with BIG SIS's unparalleled and unchallenged intellect have been able to anticipate problems with the website and the prospect of millions of people losing their healthcare and done something in advance to prevent or at least minimize the problems from occurring in the first place? At least knowing what questions to ask, so as not to embarrass himself by declaring things that simply were not true?

No, it seems like there is a more plausible explanation for President Lead From Behind. Obama is not bored because he's not intellectually challenged (although he may be), but precisely because he can't be bothered with details. He's a "big idea" guy. And an autocrat. When he makes a pronouncement, he expects the little people who live to serve him, to take care of the details. He's got a round of golf to play. That's one of the reasons he farmed out Obamacare to Nancy Pelosi and company. Actually governing the country is boring to an intellectual lightweight like Obama. Obama is a campaigner. It is much easier for him to spout things like "Hope and change", "We are the people we have been waiting for", "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it", than to actually work out the nitty gritty details that might actually allow some of those things to come to pass.

Obama is much more eager to rub shoulders with Oprah, the vapid harpies of The View, Hollywood stars and musicians than his own cabinet members and heads of state. Does that sound to you like someone yearning to be intellectually challenged? Hardly!

In Ms. Valerie's defense, I do not believe she is delusional, no matter how delusional these things sound in the clear light of day. I believe that she and her fellow travelers are on a quest to gain and retain power, and if building a mythology around Obama is a means of doing so, she will attempt to do it with a straight face. And she is, after all, the genius who convinced Obama on at least three occasions NOT to make the 'gutsy call' to get bin Laden.

Re-Branding Obamacare

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

How the mighty (in their own minds) have fallen! The signature accomplishment of Obama's tenure was to enact some form of universal healthcare, the "Holy Grail" of Democrats and progressives for the last century. Originally dubbed "Obamacare" in derision, Obama came to embrace the name: "Because I do care", and, after all, it is all about him! Now, Obama wants to "re-brand" the (Un)Affordable Healthcare Act, as if giving it a new name somehow would change any of its odious attributes. I'm thinking he should take a page from the "Geico gecko" campaign, although, I'm not sure that the "Obamacare Weasel" has quite the same cachet. Next time you see roadkill, for example, just think of it as a "random alternative to life". Hey! That's pretty good! Maybe Obama could re-brand "Random Alternative to Life Panels" in Obamacare?

So, in Obama's mind, the way to fix a bad law, that caused millions more to lose their affordable insurance than to gain it, is with more words, by re-branding it, and by delaying it for a year? That presents several problems:

A) if all these plans Obama would allow people to keep are, as the liberals keep telling us, "faux" insurance, substandard and inadequate policies, how is it doing anyone a kindness to keep these people in them another year?

B) if the law, as enacted, will cause millions of people to lose their healthcare plans and millions upon millions more to see their costs doubling and tripling over what they have now, how is merely delaying a bad plan for a year any more than just a band-aid upon a life threatening condition? Why not go for a cure, instead?

C) The Big "C", Obama has no Constitutional right or authority to randomly rewrite portions of the law all by himself. Obama assumes for himself the powers of the worst kind of banana republic, tinhorn dictator when he attempts to do so. All of the liberals who bleated that conservatives should accede to Obamacare because it's "the law of the land, passed by Congress, signed by the President and affirmed by the Supreme Court", should at least have the shame to admit that every change Obama makes in the law illegally, goes against both the spirit and the letter of the law they claimed to uphold.

But getting back to the re-branding. The Geico gecko tells us us that 'Fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance'. If the Obamacare Keystone Kops can ever get the website functional, and there's any truth in advertising: "Fifteen hours and triple your premiums can put all your personal information at risk from hackers".

Operators are standing by.

Oh, well! If it's not in the document, what could possibly go wrong???

The administration also claimed it wasn’t recognizing Iran’s right to enrichment uranium, while Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi, specifically told Iranian media that the agreement recognizes the country’s “enrichment program” and they wouldn’t have accepted a deal that didn’t recognize the right to enrich.

So, our Secretary of Stasis, John Kerry, has negotiated a deal where we transfer seven billion American dollars (much of it in cash), remove trade sanctions against them and in return, we get a document that both sides can't even agree upon what it says??

No wonder Teresa doesn't trust him with the checkbook!

November 22, 1963 - In Remembrance

From the archives (updated):

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Today marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of a great man. One who left his mark on his country and his culture. One who is still quoted to this day. On November 22, 1963, the world little noted his passing in the shock and outpouring of grief over the assassination of JFK. That man was Clive Staple Lewis…oddly enough, like JFK, ”Jack” to his friends.

C. S. Lewis, author of The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity and The Chronicles of Narnia, was a contemporary and friend of J. R. R. Tolkien. He was also an atheist who came to Christianity, in his own words, “kicking and screaming”, who became one of its strongest apologists.

You must picture me alone in that room in Magdalen, night after night, feeling, whenever my mind lifted even for a second from my work, the steady, unrelenting approach of Him whom I so earnestly desired not to meet. That which I greatly feared had at last come upon me. In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.
-Surprised by Joy

His books have been translated into dozens of languages and sold millions of copies over the years. Anthony Hopkins portrayed him in the movie Shadowlands (1993), the story of his romance with American poet Joy Gresham, who died of cancer a mere handful of years after they met.

His life was rich and varied. His sorrows deep and vast. His legacy is enduring.

In our remembrance of those who passed this day, one might do well to remember what can be accomplished with just a pair of Jacks!

A Modest Proposal

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I was watching a news story about the president’s plummeting popularity and trustworthiness numbers, when the reporter attributed the president’s lack of credibility, in large part to the failings of the Obamacare website, particularly in regards to its security. They showed a clip of congressional hearings where one congress critter asked four men directly responsible for security at the Healthcare.gov site, point blank, if the site would be secure by Dec 1st. To a man, they all answered “No”.

Now the White House insists that Healthcare.gov is secure. Hmm... Given the track record of this administration, that could hinge on what your definition of “is” is, or “secure”. But I had an idea. Here is the opportunity for Obama and the Democrats to show true leadership. Having exempted themselves from all the wonderfulness that is Obamacare, there’s no real reason for them to go to the Healthcare.gov website, right? So, here’s the deal. President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and all the Democrats that voted for this catastrophe , er, boon (doggle) to mankind, should all personally open an account at Healthcare.gov and enter all the private information required of John and Jane Doe, average Americans.
Like that guy from Life Lock who bought mobile billboards with his real Social Security number on them, because he was confident in the security of his own system. If the White House “insists” that the site is secure, then the President and Congress Critters who voted for it won’t mind at all personally inputting their own Social Security numbers, bank accounts and whatever else in the way of personal or otherwise private information required of them, would they?

And, of course, they should sit down and do this personally, and not delegate it to some paid staffer. Mr. and Mrs. America don’t have paid personal staff to do this sort of thing for them. The President and Congress should lead by example here.

Anyone care to wager that if the President and Congress were personally required, or shamed into going on this site, that they would make sure it is a darn sight more secure than it is for you and me?

So, make the darn site more secure, or scrap it.

Private First Class Arthur J. Jackson


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with the 3d Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division, in action against enemy Japanese forces on the Island of Peleliu in the Palau group, 18 September 1944. Boldly taking the initiative when his platoon's left flank advance was held up by the fire of Japanese troops concealed in strongly fortified positions, Pfc. Jackson unhesitatingly proceeded forward of our lines and, courageously defying the heavy barrages, charged a large pillbox housing approximately 35 enemy soldiers. Pouring his automatic fire into the opening of the fixed installation to trap the occupying troops, he hurled white phosphorus grenades and explosive charges brought up by a fellow marine, demolishing the pillbox and killing all of the enemy. Advancing alone under the continuous fire from other hostile emplacements, he employed similar means to smash 2 smaller positions in the immediate vicinity. Determined to crush the entire pocket of resistance although harassed on all sides by the shattering blasts of Japanese weapons and covered only by small rifle parties, he stormed 1 gun position after another, dealing death and destruction to the savagely fighting enemy in his inexorable drive against the remaining defenses, and succeeded in wiping out a total of 12 pillboxes and 50 Japanese soldiers. Stouthearted and indomitable despite the terrific odds. Pfc. Jackson resolutely maintained control of the platoon's left flank movement throughout his valiant 1-man assault and, by his cool decision and relentless fighting spirit during a critical situation, contributed essentially to the complete annihilation of the enemy in the southern sector of the island. His gallant initiative and heroic conduct in the face of extreme peril reflect the highest credit upon Pfc. Jackson and the U.S. Naval Service.


Pfc. Jackson: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Obama Proves Once Again the Liberals are Irony Impaired

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"On Capitol Hill, one side is invested in failure."
-Barack Obama

Barack Obama finally speaks the truth and doesn't even realize it! The party of Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, barricading the veterans' memorial, the stimulus that didn't, high unemployment, multiplying the national debt, the 'Arab Spring', IRS targeting, NSA spying, reporter eavesdropping, Healthcare.gov, and turning NASA into a self esteem program for Muslims, has been invested in failure for years.

Their biggest investment in failure stood in front of Styrofoam columns, prattled on about lowering sea level, being more flexible with the Russians, keeping your healthcare and doctor if you like them, and brandishing a Nobel Peace Prize he didn't earn.

I've often said it about one of his disciples, but it appears to be true of Obama as well:
He has more projection than a multiplex!
