Rep.@RosLehtinen to Kerry: “When Leader Of Free World Shakes Bloody Hand Of Ruthless Dictator It’s A Propaganda Coup”
When confronting John Kerry (an American traitor in Secretary of State’s clothing) on the ‘bloody hand shake’ Cuban born U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) pulled no punches.
God love her.
Mr. Secretary, sometimes a handshake is just a handshake. But when the leader of the free world shakes the bloody hand of a ruthless dictator like Raul Castro, it becomes a propaganda coup for the tyrant. Raul Castro uses that hand to sign the orders to repress and jail democracy advocates.
Could you please tell the Cuban people living under that the repressive regime that, a handshake notwithstanding, the U.S. policy toward the cruel and sadistic Cuban dictatorship has not weakened?

@MSNBC: @NBC/@WSJ @QuinnipiacPoll Polls Show Obama Is LESS Popular Than EVAH! Record HIGH! Record LOW!
Year End Lows For The President:
(MSNBC) –A year that began with President Barack Obama riding high after his re-election victory and inauguration ends with him in the biggest hole of his presidency.
A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds the president with more Americans disapproving of his job performance than ever before; with half saying they’re either disappointed or dissatisfied with his presidency; and with 54% believing he’s facing a long-term setback.
Perhaps more significantly, Obama has seen a drop in key presidential attributes, such as being honest and straightforward, being able to handle a crisis and being able to achieve his goals.
While the past year has presented Obama with several different challenges – the agency scandal inside the Internal Revenue Service, the leaking of National Security Agency information, the government shutdown in October–the main culprit for his current woes has been the bungled health-care rollout.
Indeed, for the first time in the poll, a majority now views the health law as a bad idea instead of a good one.
According to the poll, Obama’s overall job-approval rating stands at 43%, up 1 point from the previous NBC/WSJ survey conducted in late October.
But 54% say they disapprove of his job, which is the highest mark in his presidency.
In addition, for the second-straight survey, Obama’s favorable/unfavorable score is a net-negative (42% positive, 46% negative).
And a combined 50% say they are either “disappointed” or “dissatisfied” with the president, versus a combined 28% who are “proud” or “satisfied.”
Another 22% say they’re mixed.
What’s more, just 28% give the president high grades for being able to achieve his goals (down 16 points from January); only 37% give him high marks for being honest and straightforward (down 5 points from June); and 44% give him high marks for being able to handle a crisis (down another 5 points since June).
50% say the health law is a bad idea
Only 34% believe the health law is a good idea (down 3 points from late October), while 50% say it’s a bad idea (the highest percentage here since the NBC/WSJ poll began asking this question).
Also, by a 51%-to-43% margin, respondents say they are bothered more by the Obama administration’s troubled health care website and some Americans losing their health plans, rather than by the Republican Party’s continued efforts to undermine the law.
And asked which one or two issues have been most important in shaping their views about the president, the top response was the health care law (58%) – followed by the economy (25%), the government shutdown (23%) and the situations in Syria and Iran (16%). [...]
Insane in the membrane, insane in the brain.
(KING5) –”Rooster Monkburn” the cowboy sock monkey is without his pistol, thanks to a diligent TSA agent in St. Louis.
Phyllis May of Redmond, Wash. says she is “appalled and shocked and embarrassed all at the same time” about the incident that happened on Dec. 3.
May has a small business selling unique sock monkey dolls. She says she and her husband were on their way from St. Louis to Sea-Tac and she had a couple of monkeys and sewing supplies with her in a carry-on bag.
May and her husband were going through the screening process when she noticed that one of her bags was missing.
“And the (TSA agent) held it up and said ‘whose is this?’” she said. “I realized oh, my God this is my bag.”
May said the TSA agent went through the bag, through the sewing supplies and found the two-inch long pistol.
“She said ‘this is a gun,’” said May. “I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey.”
“She said ‘If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn’t know if it was real or not,’ and I said ‘really?’” said May.
The TSA agent told May she would have to confiscate the tiny gun and was supposed to call the police.
“I said well go ahead,” said May. “And I said really? You’re kidding me right, and she said no it looks like a gun.”
In the end, the agent did not call police and May did get her other sewing supplies back.
On Monday, the TSA issued a statement, saying “TSA officers are dedicated to keeping the nation’s transportation security systems safe and secure for the traveling public. Under longstanding aircraft security policy, and out of an abundance of caution, realistic replicas of firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags.”
Fake guns that are under 3 inches long NOT allowed. But hey, feel free to carry on SEVEN INCH tools! They are NOT a security risk…what…so…ever!
What a bunch of tools.
Jaw dropping incompetency!

Any day a monument of Lenin is toppled, beheaded then demolished with a sledgehammer is a good day. A damn good day.
(Daily Mail) –Anti-government protesters toppled a statue of Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin in Ukraine’s capital and attacked it with hammers on Sunday in a symbolic challenge to President Viktor Yanukovich and his plans for closer ties with Russia.
The gesture rejecting Moscow’s historic influence over Ukraine came after opposition leaders told hundreds of thousands of demonstrators on Kiev’s Independence Square to keep up pressure on Yanukovich to sack his government.
The protesters are furious that the government decided last month to ditch a landmark pact with the European Union in favour of closer economic cooperation with Moscow, Ukraine’s Soviet-era overlord.
Yanukovich’s sudden tack towards Russia has provoked the biggest street protests since the 2004-5 Orange Revolution, when people power forced a re-run of a fraud-tainted election and thwarted his first run for the presidency.
‘Yanukovich, you are next!’ read a poster stuck on the plinth where the red granite statue of Lenin had stood. People hacked off chunks of the prostrate – and now headless – leader of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution to take home as souvenirs.
Cheered by the crowd, a woman planted an EU flag on the pedestal where the 11 ft-high statue had stood since 1946.
Opposition leaders denied any link to its removal, clearly concerned that such an act could harm their cause. The spokesman of Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov called the felling of the statue ‘barbarism’, Interfax news agency reported. [...]
“Barbarism”? Really? What a buffoon.
(BBC) –The BBC has obtained an exclusive face-to-face interview with a 25-year-old student from France who travelled to Syria to fight as part of the biggest brigade of foreign jihadists.
He says he has now left the brigade because it recently pledged full allegiance to an organisation called the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria or ISIS – the most hardline group linked to al-Qaeda.
ISIS is now one of the dominant forces in northern Syria where it controls several towns. [...]
Regime Ends Traditional Pearl Harbor Flyovers YET Obama Plans ANOTHER Taxpayer Funded Multi $MILLION Hawaiian Vacay
Another slap in the face of Veterans…
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) —The missing man flyover at Pearl Harbor is a tradition USS Arizona and National Park Service historian Daniel Martinez has witnessed every December 7 since 1985.
“When you see that aircraft apart in that missing man formation, every one of us individualize what that means,” he said.
But that emotion won’t be there this year. The F-22 Raptors piloted by the Hawaii Air National Guard are under orders not to perform.
“There have been restrictions on all kinds of flyovers across the country. We were not able to get an exception of policy to do this one,” Hawaii National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Chuck Anthony said.
Pearl Harbor survivors are understandably upset.
“I’m totally disgusted. The one day of the year when we’re honoring our military from World War II,” said retired U.S. Army Sgt. Allen Bodenlos.
“Every year I watch for the flight. I have those flights on the camera. To not see a flyover, I can’t imagine,” said Delton Walling, who was aboard the USS Pennsylvania when Japan attacked in 1941.
Until Washington gives the thumbs up, missing man flyovers over Hawaii skies will be a thing of the past.
Keith Koffler reports on the heavy burden the Obama Hawaiian family vacation places on American taxpayers:
Air Force One is known to cost about $180,000 an hour to fly. Based on an estimated 18 hours roundtrip flying time for the flight between Washington and Honolulu, the travel cost alone of Obama’s annual Hawaii sojourn amounts to around $3.24 million. And that doesn’t include the price tag for the massive security operation required to move the president or the cost of the cargo plane that follows Air Force One around.
