U.N. General Assembly president accused of taking bribes

How could that smile be
Former U.N. General Assembly president John William Ashe (no relation to the late Arthur Ashe) is accused of taking half a million dollars in bribes from Chinese businesses, but on the plus side, he took his family to an $850-a-night hotel room where they had a great time with some of the bribe money.

The current president of the UNGA said "corruption has no place" there but did not specify where corruption has a place. Hillary Clinton wants to know.

Ashe put the money to good use, it appears, buying custom suits, Rolex watches and using it to pay his mortgage and construct a basketball court at his Dobbs Ferry home.

He was arrested on Tuesday.

Ashe is a former U.N. ambassador from Antigua and Barbados and served as head of the 193-nation assembly from September 2013 to September 2014. He faces tax fraud involving a conspiracy of five others including Francis Lorenzo, a deputy U.N. ambassador from the Dominican Republic currently living in the Bronx but soon may relocate to the "state pen."

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said "I wouldn't be surprised if we see other people charged."

Samantha Power, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. was not available for comment.

If found guilty, Ashe may be spending more time with FIFA officials in prison than basketball enthusiasts on his newly constructed home court.

Is Putin planning to send 150,000 troops to Syria?

According to a report in the Daily Express, Vladimir Putin is planning to send 150,000 troops to Syria to remove ISIS from their self-declared capital in Raqqa. One source said "It is very clear that Russia wants to sweep up the west of the country, taking Raqqa and all the oil and gas resources around Palmyra. This is fast becoming a race to Raqqa--to secure the oil fields they need to cleanse the region of insurgents, and the IS capital is vital to do that."

The day prior to this revelation, Russian airstrikes destroyed nine ISIS outposts with their bunker-busting bombs. They blew up a command center and likely killed scores of scumcrumpets.

Russian army official, Andrei Kartapolov promised to ramp up the pressure on ISIS and said "We will not only continue strikes . . . We will also increase their intensity."

Igor Konashenkov of the Russian Defense Ministry said "Over the past 24 hours, Sukhoi Su-34 and Su-24M fighter jets have performed 20 sorties and hit nine Islamic State installation."

This is Obama's definition of weakness.

In spite of the history of the Daily Express having been on the wrong side of accuracy, we should have no doubts about Russia's desire to control the world's oil reserves, and this is a step in the right direction to do just that. 

While it would be an arduous task to get 150,000 troops to Syria to fight, know that Putin will likely get Russia deeply involved in becoming the go-to guy in the Middle East, while Obama plays golf and twiddles his thumbs. 

Even Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has met with Putin because Obama, at the end of the day, is clearly throwing Israel under the tank.

U.S. says it was the Afghans who ordered the airstrike

The airstrike that killed 22 people in a northern Afghanistan clinic was requested by Afghan forces, the Pentagon is now saying. According to our report, Afghan forces were under attack by the Taliban fighters and the Afghans called in the airstrike, proving that not all Muslim extremists are suicidal but all are engaged in jihad.

General John Campbell, in order to correct the record, told reporters in a press conference that "The Afghans advised that they were taking fire. Ab airstrike was then called to eliminate the Taliban threat [read: kill or maim] and several civilians were accidentally struck [read: blown to smithereens]. This is different from the initial reports, which indicated that U.S. forces were threatened and that the airstrike was called on their behalf."

Unfortunately, Campbell's account doesn't specify whether the clinic was actually targeted in error or if other mistakes were made by U.S. forces.

"If errors were committed, we will acknowledge them," Campbell said.

Military sources reported to Fox News that there were Taliban fighters firing from inside the hospital.

Twenty-two people were killed, including nine local staffers for Doctors Without Borders. In addition, thirty people were missing after an explosion nearby in the Afghan city of Kunduz.

The purpose of the airstrikes were to kill Taliban insurgents who had overrun Kunduz and Campbell confirmed that it was an USAF C-130 gunship that was involved in the carnage.

Obama has threatened to take away all of our military aircraft with his pen and phone if this "routine killing" continues. He said that "We are not at war with Islam. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families, both coalition forces and Taleeebahn, for this unfortunate incident."

The administration plans to hold all those responsible for this tragedy in the lowest regard, and warned that harsh tweets may follow.

Palestinian jihadists upset that Israel is preventing them from killing Jews

Somehow the secular progressives in the U.S. are going to find a way to blame Israel (read: the Jews) for treating Palestinians as if they are all terrorists. In Jerusalem's Old City two Israeli Jews were stabbed to death by Palestinian Muslims, and three other Jews were also wounded. Now the Israeli police barred Palestinians from the Old City to protect unarmed Israelis.

Somehow the secular progressives are going to say that this would have never happened if Israel didn't oppress the Palestinians.

The Old City has been sacred to Jews for five thousand years and sacred to Muslims for about four thousand less. Nevertheless, this banning of Palestinians is unprecedented. 

These "lone wolf" attacks on Jews has become routine. Just a few days ago a rabbi and his wife were murdered in their car by a pair of Palestinian jihadists while their four children, ages 9, 7, 4 and 4 months sat in the backseat. Fortunately, they were not killed, but now they are left orphaned by the orthodox followers of this desert religion.

Many in the Palestinian community praised this blood bath. This comes as no surprise to anyone who has read the Koran and understands how Jews and Christians are depicted in this so-called holy book.

In response to the violence, Israeli police say they will prevent Palestinian residents of Jerusalem from entering the Old City for two days of Jewish holiday. Those Palestinians who work in the Old City, Israelis and tourists will be allowed to enter.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has remained mute on the killings but for now is trying to keep violence to the Jews at a minimum, until this all blows over. He and Bibi Netanyahu are currently at loggerheads. 
Hamassholes being Hamassholes

Israel captured the Old City and east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war, annexing the areas. Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as their capital, but are hoping to destroy all of Israel so they can expand on their little caliphate on the prairie.

Israel is the only civilized nation in the Middle East and is surrounded by anti-Semitic nations that want to see it destroyed along with its inhabitants. Somehow secular progressives have been able to twist logic and see Palestine (which, historically, was never an actual country) as the victim in this region.

What if

What if Hillary Clinton used her private server as a way of passing secret information to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB)? After all, her top aide, Huma Abedin, has a brother involved in the MB and a mother involved in the Muslim Sisterhood, the women's version. Obama has been meeting with MB members in the White House like they're part of his family.

What if Hillary was romantically involved with Huma, both women caught in marriages to men who like to show their wares to younger women--one in the Oval Office, among other places, the other on Twitter, even after getting caught once. Wouldn't Hillary allow the real "main squeeze" of her life to see her server and other "boring things"?

And wouldn't Huma jump at the opportunity to please her mother and brother by providing US government secrets that they could pass on to their own MB extended family?

What if the former Secretary of State could cash in on the information she was privv to and her safety guaranteed by the MB, and all she had to do was allow covert access to her emails?

Who would ever know her role in the espionage? All she would need to say, if somehow the plot was discovered, would be how she knows nothing about computers. I call that " doing an Obama."

After all, Obama gets his Intel input from the media.

Now I don't think Hillary is knowingly engaged in espionage, but the sheer fact that it doesn't sound as crazy as a talking Weiner, should scare the crap out of us all.

Tweets that will stop Russia in its boot tracks

I wonder how Vladimir Putin feels about the recent frontal attack he received in response to the airstrikes Russia flew against the Syrian opposition forces. I imagine he's worried that the United States is going to bombard his country, inundating them with powerful tweets, tweets that will rock him and will make the autocrat shake in his Cossack boots.

Imagine millions of Russians taking cover, getting as far away from their computer monitors as quickly as they can run. Fearful that the one tweet they fear the most will reach their eyes and destroy whatever they hold dear.

"Yikes! It's yet another Twitter attack by the word-thirsty Americans! Run Natasha, run!"

For Obama and his inept administration, words are everything. If you don't believe me, just ask his teleprompter. 

Imagine how Putin felt reading Samantha Power's tweet: "We call on Russia to cease attacks on Syria oppo (sic) & civilians & to focus on ISIL." The U.N. Ambassador must have had Vlad biting his nails with worry. Or maybe he just peed his pants laughing at how he has made the Obama administration look like a bunch of lawyers and community organizers who think their words can actually do something to stop him.

How totally naive and childish. Those words have as much weight and substance as a bag of smoke from a dung fire.

Obama says that Putin and Iran are on the wrong side of history.

He's wrong--they are on their side of history, the side they choose to be on. They choose to grab as much power as Obama and the rest of the West allows them to grab. And for Obama to think that our "60 nation coalition" is an actual coalition is a bong party fantasy.
Signs of ineptitude

Telling Russia to cease their involvement in the Middle East is like telling Bill Clinton to keep it in his pants, or telling Obama to give up the idea of gun-control while the bodies are still warm.

Clinton privilege: above the law

How many laws does it take for a Clinton to break before they have to defend themselves in court?

Now we have found dozens of emails released by the State Department that belonged to Hillary Clinton to have contained classified information as deemed by that department. 

With the release of about 3,900 emails, over 200 have been marked "B1," meaning they contain classified information. There were over 100 "B5" emails that refer to internal deliberations by the president and they are exempt from disclosure to Congress and the public.

Almost all of the emails were "confidential" and at least 3 so far, are "secret." That level is sensitive enough to cause serious damage to our national security if made public.

Officials upgraded the classification level of parts of 215 emails, State Department spokes snuffy John Kirby said. "The information we upgraded today was not marked classified at the time the emails were sent. It has been subsequently upgraded."

That's no excuse. The secretary of state should know what's classified and what isn't. The secretary of state should not use a private server for those emails and then lie to the American people about not sending or receiving classified emails. Then changing the lie to not sending or receiving emails marked classified.

But why blame Hillary for lying when it's just another vast right wing conspiracy? After all, how can she be the first woman president of the United States if serving time in Federal prison?

Putin demonstrates leadership to Obama

As Putin's air strikes continue in Syria, Obama continues "expressing [his] concerns" and that has been the Obama administration's strategy from day one. Not only did Putin take Obama's lunch money, Sergey Lavrov, the Russian counterpart to Kerry, is making our so-called secretary of state look like the lap dog that he is. Perhaps Lavrov will be kind to the fellow communist.

Putin and Obama were at the UN on Monday and Vladimir wanted a photo op with Barack, which he got. The photo was all the Russian autocrat needed in order to show his peeps that he still can play with the big boys, and in this case, with the "mom's jeans boy.

All Putin had to do to score the PR shot was to allow Obama to lecture him about Russia's needs, something Obama knows better than Putin, according to Obama. 

POTUS lectured about how we must all cooperate to communicate, and kumbayah. Putin did all the communicating he needed to do as he strategized upcoming air strikes on the American-backed forces. 

In fact, Putin's response was quicker than Obama's was when our "fearless leader" called for gun control after the Oregon shooting while the bodies were still warm. Putin had his 3-star general enter the U.S. embassy in Baghdad and issue a non-negotiable declaration, instructing our official there that Russia would commence airstrikes within the hour and that we had better get the hell out of the way.

In diplomatic terms, this was a kick in the gonads with a loogie to the eyes as we fell to the ground.

Putin's forces started their bombing runs and he claimed they were targeting ISIS. Of course trusting anything Putin tells Obama is like trusting Obama with the Iranian nuclear deal.

After Sergei Lavrov spoke at the U.N., it was the lesser speaker, John Kerry's turn. He gave a blistering denunciation that had Lavrov peeing in his Dolce & Gabbana trousers. "I relayed and reiterated the concerns that I expressed in the course of the U.N. Security Council meeting which was led by Russia today: concerns that we have about the nature of the targets, the type of targets, and the need for clarity with respect to them. And it is one thing obviously to be targeting ISIL. We're concerned, obviously, if that is not what is happening."

In diplomatic terms, this translates to mean: "Kerry is a pussy." 

But fear not, my patriot friends. We have a so-called president who assures us that when all is said and done, Russia, Syria, Iran and ISIS will be "on the wrong side of history."

That ought to make them feel guilty and get them to stop and go home.
