An EXCELLENT op/ed by Kevin Williamson over at National Review. He is 100% exactly right in his analysis. So, I have nothing to add, other than read this!
The Prime Minister has said that tragic news of the beheading of British citizen David Haines by ISIS terrorists will not prompt the United Kingdom into a knee-jerk reaction, though he promised to “destroy ISIL with an iron determination”.
Seems like PM David Cameron is approaching the situation with ISIS similarly to the current U.S. strategy. But, the circumstances are FAR different. There is a HUGE Muslim population in the UK. So, they’re worried about attacks on their homeland. That aside, ya gotta like David Cameron’s rhetoric. VERY unlike Obama, he speaks with clarity and doesn’t mince words or use hyper-legalistic language. PM Cameron is direct, and you’re left with no doubt where he stands. He doesn’t avoid words he doesn’t like…or which make him uncomfortable. He just calls it as he sees it…and that’s very refreshing! Our limp-wristed, metro-sexual, wimp of a president could learn a thing or two from PM David Cameron.
With John Kerry, you REALLY need to consider the source. We’re talking about a guy that put himself in for a couple Purple Hearts for his service in Vietnam (which his fellow Swiftboat crew mates ridiculed), and when he returned from Vietnam, he threw his medals over the fence and onto the lawn of the White House…and was photographed at anti-war rallies with Jane Fonda. So, yeah.. Consider the source. He cannot stand the word “war.” Its the “w” word to him, Obama, and many other liberal Democrats. To them, the word is like kryptonite to Superman. So, it shouldn’t be lost on anyone how ironic it is that what may define Obama’s presidency is not Obamacare, the “reset” with Russia, the economy and so on…ALL of which have ben total disasters. No. What may define Obama, is that he lost an already won war in Iraq…pulled everyone out prematurely, and then had to go BACK to Iraq to fight the most dangerous Islamic terrorist entity to date; one he was advised of for over a year, but did NOTHING about until two Americans were videotaped being beheaded.
North Korea’s Supreme Court on Sunday sentenced US citizen Matthew Miller to six years’ hard labour for “hostile” acts, two weeks after he and two other detained Americans had pleaded for help from Washington.
This is a toughy… The DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) is a brutal, evil regime that starves its people each year by the millions, and has hundreds of thousands in brutal gulag concentration camps. The country is run by a spoiled brat lunatic that doesn’t know which part of its interaction with other countries (like the USA) is an XBOX ONE video game, and which part is reality…which makes things difficult and very dangerous. Of course the Obama Administration should do everything it can to secure the release of these Americans. That said, I think this is a pretty good example of why Americans should NOT go to N. Korea to visit. Its a pretty silly, and risky, thing to do. Yeah, it IS, technically, possible to visit the DPRK. BUT, its expensive, the process takes forever, and there are a LOT of hoops to jump through…and you’re NEVER alone. Government officials are always watching. And, then weird things like this happen. Did this guy really tear up his visa? Or was he just snagged and THEY tore it up? I’m willing to bet he probably didn’t do anything, and is being used as a bargaining chip in negotiations with the Obama Administration. But, I suspect we won’t know for a while; maybe even 6 years. So, if you go to N. Korea, then I think you’re on your own…and if something like this happens, you were warned and too bad, so sad.
Kanye West shocked fans in Australia when he halted a concert after two fans failed to stand up for him, even though one was in a wheelchair and the other had a prosthetic limb reports The Independent.
As most you know, I rarely do the celeb thing here at The Daily Buzz. Its boring, irrelevant, and has no impact on our lives. Plus, for those who don’t have a life and want to pay attention to HollyWEIRD and celebs and such, just go to your nearest grocery store and as you’re going through the checkout lane there is People, US, ad all the rest of those worthless rags. That said, every once in a while, something catches my attention. Such is the case with the latest antics from that idiot, Kanye West. What a nauseating, disgusting tool.. Why do people still buy Kanye’s crap and pay to actually see that buffoon? Remember back in 2009 at the MTV Music Video Awards ceremony when he got up on stage and ripped the mic out of Taylor Swift’s hands while she was graciously trying to give her acceptance speech? Keep in mind she was like 18 or 19, and kept her composure as Kayne went on some silly rant about how the award should have gone to Beyoncé. Yeah.. A real class act. They should have beyonced his behind right the heck outta there. But, pretty much everyone was in shock, and so nobody did anything, and he got away with his public disrespect of Taylor. Kayne is the poster child for all that is wrong in the hip hop world…and that list is very long an undistinguished, trust me. I guess it just blows my mind that people actually spend their hard-earned money on him, and his garbage…and would want to see him (and/or his talentless wife) in person. But, I guess its true that “a sucker is born every minute.”
Interesting.. Its gonna be a close vote in the UK. I don’t think Scotland will vote to approve that measure, ultimately. But, with all that’s going on with the illegal immigration issue, among others, I can see how there might be a groundswell movement of some folks to push for Texas to secede. While I doubt it’ll ever happen, its certainly something to keep an eye on…
