King Abdullah the Leader

There is a reason why Jordanian King King Abdullah II has been termed a warrior king. This small detail seems to have escaped ISIS.

 

ISIS made a huge mistake by releasing its slickly produced and horrific video of Jordanian fighter pilot Muadh al-Kasasbeh  being caged and burned alive. If ISIS’ wanted to instill fear, it has instead, instilled fury from Muslims worldwide.

 

Obama may be weak-kneed, Jordan’s warrior king, King Abdullah II is not! His pledge of  a “severe” response,  has already begun.

 

In the 72 hours since the video’s release Jordan has hanged two Al Qaeda terrorists, one being the female suicide bomber ISIS was using in its faux negotiations with Jordan and killed 55 terrorists including a top leader known as the “Prince of Ninevah”.

The AP is reporting that Jordanian warplanes bombed Islamic State targets against the militants who control large areas of neighboring Syria and Iraq.

 

Let’s get this straight; one cannot lead from behind! That concept is rightly called following, akin to the children’s game of asking first, Mother May I.

 

Leading from behind could be one of the most inane (real leaders call it insane) concepts ever to come from the ranks of Team Obama and its supporters in the MSM.

Obama the lagger, leading from behind!

It is laughable to think that winning generals across the ages including Washington, Grant, Patton, Eisenhower, Clark or Petraeus would consider this for even a nanosecond.

Yet, Team Obama goes forward with this nonsense as the world struggles to fight ISIS and Islamic Extremism.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II has done more in the first three days after the video was shown to show the world how to defeat ISIS than Obama has done in over a year. BTW, Jordan’s warrior king has no problem calling out the ISIS terrorists for what they are,  Islamic terrorists.

Jordan’s bombing sorties have gone from a measly 7 per day to 56 in 3 days.

He has vowed his country will fight ISIS until they “run out of fuel and bullets”.

 

2014 Midterms; Advice for Uninformed Voters Consistently Voting Against Their Own Best Interests

Elections are serious business. The 2014 midterm elections will have serious consequences for both parties and the citizens of this country.

What to do, what to do?

What to do, what to do?

 

Many believe that there is nothing more dangerous than an uneducated voter, and with good reason.

Casting your vote isn’t about helping the red team or the blue team win. Too many people cast votes like those voting for the next high school prom king or queen. Remember the following:

 

Talk is cheap. It’s results that count, not rhetoric and not party. The candidate you are voting for has either kept their promises or they haven’t. Either your life is better because of their policies or it isn’t.
Excuses, excuses; if the candidate you are voting for was the coach of a college or pro team would hire or fire them for the job they did? If they couldn’t show leadership the first time around what makes you think another term will be any different?
You could be voting against your own self interests. If you haven’t spent at least 30 minutes identifying the key issues per candidate, maybe you shouldn’t vote. You cheat yourself and your family by relying solely on political ads and funny-men; neither are impartial.
Nix because as a reason to cast your vote. Never vote for someone because he or she is the first (fill in the qualifier here) anything! Real accomplishments count, not skin color, gender, religious affiliation or political party.
Who can you trust? Candidates who use “politically charged” rhetoric to divide groups cannot be trusted.

 

These are people interested in themselves and their own agendas. They are not interested you or your family. There is nothing wrong with remembering the past, but using the past like a club is divisive and wrong.

 

If the Republicans win the most Senate seats and regain control of the Senate, Harry Reid the man who has single-handedly blocked over 352 bi-partisan bills passed by the House will be Chief Obstructionist no more.

 

For those who don’t know, it takes both houses of Congress to pass a bill. Reid’s refusal to let bills out of committee is one of the prime reasons legislation and this country has ground to a halt.

If the Democrats keep control of the Senate, count on more stagnation and more of the same ole same ole.

 

We need candidates who genuinely want to bring the country together. This county deserves better than it has gotten from its elected officials in the last 30 years. We all deserve better! Your informed vote can make the difference.

Is It Time For a Worldwide Ban on Single-use Plastic Bags?

June 2, 2014 A family of 4 can easily go through 500 plastic bags yearly. Let me state for the record, that with few exceptions, I do not like governmental bans or restrictions on personal behavior. That means the number of ounces of soda one can drink,…

Chicago’s Black Community to Obama…It’s Time for You to Quit!

The truth is, talk is cheap and no one has talked more or cheapened the presidency like Barack Hussein Obama.

 

I might have been able to overlook the fact that Obama has knowingly occupied the White House as the country’s first constitutionally ineligible president if he had been able to live up the rhetoric. We all know he hasn’t. He is as incompetent as anyone with half a brain was able to predict back in 2008.

 

The truth is what counts in life and in sports are results.  Team Obama’s lack of results speak for themselves. What is truly tragic is the impact on the black community, single women, and Millennials…all who voted for “Hope & Change” and got screwed. There are no jobs, no money, no nothing except faded bumper stickers and dreams.

 

All of which brings us to the following video.
