(Released)(CNSNews.com) – Speaking at the United States Conference of Mayors on Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the approximately 11 million people who are in the country illegally have “earned the right to be citizens.”

Really, what can you even say to this silliness. 

 

Are there any serious people left in this country?

How’s that Syria plan going?

Syria, the New Afghanistan

Once upon a time it was Afghanistan where would-be jihadis went to receive training in terror tactics, so that they could return to their home countries and wreak havoc. Now, the Telegraph says, the jihadi destination of choice is Syria: “Al-Qaeda training British and European ‘jihadists’ in Syria to set up terror cells at home.”

Wow, never saw that coming. (SARC)

Yes the postings have been slim lately.  I’ve been pretty busy and things that matterreally haven’t had much time to contemplate the state of the world a whole lot.  I did have some time however to read a little of Charles Krauthammer’s book “Things that Matter”.  It’s a collection of columns he’s written over the years. I’ve watched Charles on TV for years and sometimes agree, sometimes not.  What I never fully realized is how well he writes.  I’m only halfway through the book but I do recommend it.

File under clueless:

In his is New Yorker interview published over the weekend, President Obama stated that current Al Qaeda was “jayvee” – and said that his analogy was often used around the White House. “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama said. He then added, “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.

CNN reported last week that “al Qaeda appears to control more territory in the Arab world than it has done at any time in its history.”

I think this President simply isn’t interested in foreign policy of any kind.  Hawaii beckons.

Green Fade-Out: Europe to Ditch Climate Protection Goals

The EU’s reputation as a model of environmental responsibility may soon be history. The European Commission wants to forgo ambitious climate protection goals and pave the way for fracking — jeopardizing Germany’s touted energy revolution in the process.

green europePerhaps because it’s all been a scam plus the costs and real world affects of fake climate protection is hurting people while making a few very rich.  Wind power isn’t cost effective, solar either.  There may be a way in the future to make renewable energy work but for now it’s only lining the pockets of a few while making the rest of us pay through the nose for utilities.  Europe is much worse and the cost much higher.

I wonder how hard it would be to get a permit to put up a windmill in your yard if you don’t live way out in the country?  Humm.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for renewable energy research but implementation must be cost effective.   

Overall the effort is right on track, Syria

Nothing to see here folks, move along.

Syria blamed for missed deadline on chemical arsenal

The Obama administration Monday called on Syria to honor promises to surrender its chemical weapons stockpile, a day after international experts acknowledged delays in removing some of the most lethal toxins from the country.

U.S. officials conceded that a Tuesday deadline for ridding Syria of hundreds of tons of liquid poisons would not be met, citing stalled progress in transporting the chemicals across war-ravaged countryside to ships that will carry them out of the region. But the officials insisted that the overall effort to destroy President Bashar al-Assad’s chemical arsenal was on track.

Really, does this shock anyone?  Another Foreign Policy success.
