No More Gnat Strikes Time For Comprehensive All Out Strategy To ISIL Destroy

We have now been warned in no uncertain terms of the dangers from ISIS we now face
Hagel clearly indicated the nature of the threat of ISIL we off this planet do not erase
This is not just a threat to our way of life but to the entire human race
Like the pirates of old for ISIL there can be no haven no safe place
If our CinC could ever get up to speed, off the links, off the fundraisers and try to attend to what this country needs
Maybe in the Victory Garden of containment and then destruction we could plant the winning seeds
If all our President can do is small gnat like air attacks
We are lost because a strategy to destroy we lack 
ISIL now controls some small oil fields and refineries in Northern Iraq
Time to with the Kurds, air power and special ops take them back
Assuming Obama does not give out so many pink slips several carriers can no longer sail
We have enough air power to insure that any ISIL movement will fail
ISIL needs money that through the world capital markets must flow to be spent
There must be banking rules that would prevent the funds from being sent
The world banking community must have the ability to tract funds and somehow their use seize or block
Anyone financially assisting these savages must receive a real crippling financial shock
It would be ironic but almost like the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact in 1939
We may have to ally with Assad to keep these barbarians in line
It is finally time for Obama to with conviction and banned from the links to with sincerity take off the table
The crippling effect of pledges of no more boots on the ground to fight—time to end this pathetic fable
Diplomacy works when your foes do not know what you will do
Not clear signs of the acts like boots on the ground that you will not sough

Impartial GAO Finds Pentagon Broke The Law

To no one’s surprise according to the GAO on Bergdahl the Pentagon broke the law
Failed to give notice as required to Congress and spent money it had no right to withdraw
Since Obama has held himself above the Constitution with his vaunted executive pen
Not once in an honest mistake, but again and again
Why should we even begin to expect
That the Pentagon to lawless acts would reject?
Make no mistake unlike Holder’s DOJ interested in always protecting Obama’s political back
The GAO is clearly impartial with a sense of integrity and honesty this Administration lacks
Unless two thirds of the Senate do not consist of Reid’s partisan clones
The guilty are home free with no quilt they must atone
Watch this President hold himself above the law and unable to admit he might be wrong
One almost fears like the Roman Republic our days as such may be short and not long
The Constitution is not a scrap of paper but reasonably easy to understand and to adhere
Why there is a Separation of Powers and rules of law each branch to which must adhere
Obama could not care less if Congress on his agenda refuses to act
Especially with Holder protecting his political back
At least with Reds in control of both houses even if not veto proof
This lame duck President with imperial aspirations will not be able to Congressional will remain aloof.

Nixon And Sharpton Fan The Flames Of The Rush To Judgment Fires

Governor Nixon’s demand for vigorous prosecution of the Ferguson cop
Is exactly the sort of Rush to Judgment that needs to stop
The Grand Jury has just started its investigation of Darren Wilson’s use of force
Yet Nixon appears to believe it has already been complete and has run its course
He must believe that in the case of a police shooting innocent until proven guilty does not apply
Even without an indictment he must believe that white on black means in court you have to try
Six shots at a 292 pound man charging against a cop already battered about his face
Is not the same as murder regardless of the shooter‘s or the victim’s race
Everyone on this planet would urge a vigorous and transparent investigation to determine the facts
If there is an indictment and only if, a prosecution must be vigorous not held back
In his urge to grab headlines I wonder if it ever crossed Nixon’s mind
If the Grand Jury does not indict the town of Ferguson is going to be in a major rioting bind
From the likes of Al Sharpton one has come to racial incitements expect
But from a governor of a state a disappointment that he did pause and a Rush to Judgment reject.
