Obama MIA Again And Always On Intel Briefs

Once again we find that our President is MIA when it comes to getting the facts
Missed more than half of his daily Intel briefings including those of ISIS potential attacks
Yet on 60 Minutes with a polished lying straight face he points the finger of blame
Not my fault but on his Intel sources to quickly defame
This is a President whose narcissism is so pronounced he will not on his failings reflect
How did we ever be so foolish to elect and then sadly reelect?
Blame and blame again and again is the nature of this man who on foreign policy is MIA
While terrors like jihad and ISIS he will not try to dismantle or slay
Clapper may not be a hero as he lied to Congress with a straight face
But if there is a shred of decency he should resign in a very quick pace
With proof that this President was on ISIS warned but he was too busy to hear
Now thanks to his MIA proclivities we have a major threat to fear.
We are stuck with this dishonest feckless President for another two years
Maybe with a veto proof Senate we might be able to a better course this country steer

Obama MIA Again On Intel Blames Clapper Are You Kidding?

I normally vote Red except in the case of Diane Feinstein
Whose integrity and intelligence immediately comes to mind
When it comes to a President in foreign policy I would want to support
But our current President continues to come up far too short
Can you believe a man with a straight face
His ISIS failures try on 60 Minutes to efface?
Pointing the finger of blame when he was at briefings too MIA to appear
More than half of the security briefings on threats we should fear
Obama has a hundred percent appearance rate on a fund raising event
Golfing tee time no crisis would ever circumvent
This man is a coward; he cannot admit any mistakes however slight
His ego is a crippling and deadly blight
Blame not the intelligence who warned you months in advance
Blame yourself of your view of the world that is completely reality askance

Holder To End Profiling Of Mosques And Muslims

Holder who is now a lame duck waiting for his replacement needs to go now!
Even if it involves national security, no more profiling will he allow
Given the nature of jihad and radical Islam which the President cannot say the words
Banning the profiling of Muslims and radical clerics is absurd
How many atheists, Christians or Jews believe in jihad and are willing or eager to act?
How many more Allahu Akbar beheadings do we endure before sanity in our vigilance comes back?
Holder is the Marvin K. Moody of the judicial scene and should this moment leave
Hopefully the DOJ without him can some sense of integrity and honor retrieve
If we have and I believe that we will more jihadist attacks here at home
That but for a ban on profiling may well become the norm
Holder like Fast and Furious will once again have the blood of innocent victims on his hands
But having ignored the law in protecting the President, he has long since been subject to no moral and ethical commands

Iranian Woman To Be Hanged For Killing Her Rapist

You cannot read the news about the Middle East without wanting to puke
If not ISIS beheadings, it is Iran that merits humanity’s stern rebuke
A woman raped who fought back and killed her attacker is to be hanged today
This in the Islamic world is the real War on Women that all should hold in dismay
Iran has not advanced in thought since Xerxes tried to lash back the tides
Feudal Sharia coupled with refusing to its quest for nukes subside
Worse because of a President who skips his daily briefings at least half the time
We may need Iran’s help to deal with the ISIS slime
The quid pro quo for the help because of Obama’s mantra of no boots on the ground
More work by Iran on its nukes and the sanctions totally unwound?
