Obama and our national (in)security

Get Obama Toilet Paper For That Special Someone On Your Christmas Giving List!

A focus and dedication to ensuring US national security comes from the top meaning the White House and the nations Commander-in-Chief!

Unfortunately for the last six years with two more to come this point-person has been Barack Obama, a man not only unfocused on national security but who in fact actually seems to be doing his level best at every turn to compromise national security.

Nobody reading this likely needs to be reminded of some of his signature moves but for starters there is the:

  • Ending our missile defense program in eastern Europe in an attempt to placate and garner favor with Putin who of course instead viewed the move for what it was and what he respects least…weakness!
  • Pulling of all of our troops out of Iraq allowing terrorists to take control.
  • The Syrian chemical weapons redline that was ignored and instead allowing the Russians to step-in as savior (aka weakness).
  • Current negotiations with Iran that only a fool (or our President) could ever believe would be worth anything more than the toilet paper it will potentially be written on.
  • A porous southern US border that has been completely ignored by this President.

A Russian Plane Zaps U.S. Warship’s Missile Defense System

An unarmed Russian bomber in April flew over a high-tech U.S. ship. A crew member pressed a button. Poof! No more missile defense system on the ship. No more radar. The ship became a defenseless floating coffin.

Then the plane flew over the blind ship a dozen times. Basically, it was “Nyah, nyah, nyah.”
This story got no play in American media.

On 10 April 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on 12 April a Russian Su-24 tactical bomber flew over the vessel triggering an incident that, according to several media reports, completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest.

The USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) is a 4th generation guided missile destroyer whose key weapons are Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of up to 2,500 kilometers, and capable of carrying nuclear explosives. This ship carries 56 Tomahawk missiles in standard mode, and 96 missiles in attack mode.

The US destroyer is equipped with the most recent Aegis Combat System. It is an integrated naval weapons systems which can link together the missile defense systems of all vessels embedded within the same network, so as to ensure the detection, tracking and destruction of hundreds of targets at the same time. In addition, the USS Donald Cook is equipped with 4 large radars, whose power is comparable to that of several stations. For protection, it carries more than fifty anti-aircraft missiles of various types.

Meanwhile, the Russian Su-24 that buzzed the USS Donald Cook carried neither bombs nor missiles but only a basket mounted under the fuselage, which, according to the Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, contained a Russian electronic warfare device called Khibiny.

As the Russian jet approached the US vessel, the electronic device disabled all radars, control circuits, systems, information transmission, etc. on board the US destroyer. In other words, the all-powerful Aegis system, now hooked up — or about to be — with the defense systems installed on NATO’s most modern ships was shut down, as turning off the TV set with the remote control.

The Russian Su-24 then simulated a missile attack against the USS Donald Cook, which was left literally deaf and blind. As if carrying out a training exercise, the Russian aircraft — unarmed — repeated the same maneuver 12 times before flying away.

After that, the 4th generation destroyer immediately set sail towards a port in Romania.

Since that incident, which the Atlanticist media have carefully covered up despite the widespread reactions sparked among defense industry experts, no US ship has ever approached Russian territorial waters again.

According to some specialized media, 27 sailors from the USS Donald Cook requested to be relieved from active service.

Vladimir Balybine — director of the research center on electronic warfare and the evaluation of so-called “visibility reduction” techniques attached to the Russian Air Force Academy — made the following comment: “The more a radio-electronic system is complex, the easier it is to disable it through the use of electronic warfare.”

In short, “back to the drawing board!”

Problem: it takes about seven years for the Pentagon to design and deploy a new cybersecurity system. As for missile guidance systems, it takes even longer.

If you want to know how much bang for the taxpayer’s buck the Pentagon gets, begin here.

This is blind man’s bluff. The Pentagon is the blind man.

The Pentagon’s strategy is to play dumb. “Incident? What incident?”

Congressional hearings? Don’t hold your breath.

Now Russia’s defense minister says that Russian bombers will soon start patrolling the Gulf of Mexico.

George H. W. Bush and NATO promised in 1990 that NATO would not be expanded to Russia’s borders. Then NATO broke the promise. It was mission creep by a bloated bureaucracy, whose original mission was to defend Western Europe for a few hours against an invasion by the USSR until the USA launched nuclear missiles on the USSR. That mission officially ended in 1991, when the USSR committed suicide.

Russian bombers in the Gulf? We are now seeing tit-for-tat. It is mission creep from the other side.
All those Pentagon bucks! So little bang!

Why could potential new AG Loretta Lynch be a great help to exiting AG Eric Holder?

Get Obama Toilet Paper For That Special Someone On Your Christmas Giving List!

One of The Political Commentator readers thinks that he has found the link that makes Loretta Lynch such an attractive AG nominee to replace Eric Holder!

These are the thoughts as they were sent to me in an email:

I started investigating Loretta Lynch, Obama’s pick for Attorney General and immediately could see an interesting connection. 

I read an article stating that when Loretta Lynch started Harvard, she co-founded an African-American sorority. There was only one other girl in this sorority, Sharon Malone. The name rang a bell. 

The name of the wife of AG Holder is Sharon Malone who is the sister of a known civil rights leader Vivian Malone Jones (one of 2 black students who enrolled in all white University of Alabama in 1963). 

I checked the age: both were born in 1959 and both went to Harvard at the same time. There were very few African American students in Harvard in 1977-1981, so I am rather certain that Loretta Lynch is an old college friend of Sharon Malone, the wife of the current AG Eric Holder. 

Why this connection is important? 

Holder will be investigated by Congress for totally lawless gun trafficking to Mexican drug cartels in Fast and Furious, IRS scandal, VA scandal, DOJ, NSA, EPA, FEC and other scandals. 

Most importantly, Holder covered up Obama’s use of a stolen CT Social Security number of Harrison J. Bounel 042-68-4425 and Obama’s use of bogus IDs. 

It seems that  a long time college friend of Holder’s wife [LORETTA LYNCH] was picked up as a gate keeper to continue all of the cover up by Holder and shield Holder and Obama from criminal prosecution.

Makes perfect sense to me!

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. On Saturday, Healthcare.gov reopens for “open enrollment” so that everyone can see the wonderful new prices that the government didn’t want you to know about until after the election. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change tells us that he will be getting involved this time around, thanks to the affordable care act raising the cost of our old “like it, keep it” policy by another $4,000 this year while reducing benefits. But hey, it could be worse. At least the people who made healthcare less accessible and more expensive when they wrote the Obamacare bill aren’t laughing about how stupid the American people were in failing to stop the law. Oh wait, yes they are. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted provides laughs this week on several news stories, including: Vladimir Putin is voted number one leader in the world, illegal immigration and the border, and Willie Nelson’s memoirs. Additional stories include: Kim Kardashian’s new reality TV show, how snoring can raise your risk […]

Conservative Comedy 11/7/14

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Election Day is over, the 57 states have spoken, and Barack Hussein Obama won by a landslide. At least, that’s what the voices in his head are telling him when they’re not saying things like “let’s go golf.” Speaking at a press conference to give his unique, and quite possibly psychotic, perspective on the Republican electoral blowout on Tuesday, Obama said “To everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you. To the TWO THIRDS of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you too.” But what, other than the fact that the Secret Service should start carrying butterfly nets, did he mean with that statement? Translation: “If you voted, you lost – because you’re in the tiny minority. If you didn’t vote, you win – because you’re in the great big majority. And I hear your message loud and clear: you hate Republicans but you refused to vote for those […]

As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. It’s the last few days before the election and Democrats are running scared, even though Obama claims that they love him and his policies. While such dreams of fancy could provide enough fodder to fill a year’s worth Conservative Comedy Friday’s, as the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change shows us, sometimes less is more. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted provides laughs this week on several news stories, including: Obama’s promise to grant amnesty to illegals, China’s economy, and Hunter Biden’s cocaine scandal. Additional stories include: Al Franken’s re-election bid, TSA’s Jon Pistole, and falling gas prices. These are just a few of the stories Jodi covers for us this week. Today is Halloween, and while you may or may not recognize the day, I thought it would be fun to remember it with a sketch from Dan Akroyd and Jane Curtin from the good ol’ days of Saturday Night Live.
