  1. The crap that come from Jay Carney the white house press secretary and the media and is backed up from those IDIOTS over at the progressives boards is totally bull-shit and utterly corrupt. No one but an idiot believes any of the crap they spew out anymore. That's why message boards AOW's is so important, and growing in popularity. People know they are not getting the truth from the MSM.

    They are looking for other sources of information. That is a good thing, and it ultimately destroys the power of the MSM. It cannot die soon enough.These Lefties glossed over Rev Wright and Ayers, They didn't question him on his Chicago roots. Hell. They did all they could to get the poseur elected.

    They, however, did send 200 reporters to Alaska to dig up any dirt they could find on Palin.
    And they claimed that when the Moocher said that she was “"for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country” that is was taken out of context!
    To bad they didn't send those reporters out to dig up Barry's life. Hell. He spent a year in Pakistan and no one knows what he was doing there. Of course I'm sure no one at those Progressives boards wants to know anything about that.
    Only her husband’s run for president has made her proud of America? That’s…extremely narcissistic and self-centered.

    Nothing America has done in Michelle Obama’s adult life, which at 44 goes back 26 years to 1982, has made her proud of her country? Nothing? Not winning the Cold War? Not freeing the 1000's of Jews in the Nazi concentration camps? Not our regular and orderly transitions of power based on the rule of law? Not the fact that we feed and defend the world, not that we lead in science and technology research, not that we elected Bill Clinton, the first black president in 1992…nothing? Not the fact that she and her husband were able to go to Ivy League schools before embarking on extremely lucrative careers? Not the fact that we help out in disasters wherever they strike in the world? Nothing has made Michelle Obama proud of her country in her entire adult life?
    And yet they ignore all the Muslim Brotherhood connections within the Administration.....even though it's blatantly obvious Obama supports them in Egypt....
    not a peep...And yet they ignore what happened in Benghazi! What a bunch of losers..

  2. Obama wears the MSMs "ring of Gyges" that renders all his faults and misbehaviour's.... invisible.

  3. About the Ring of Gyges:

    The Ring of Gyges is a mythical magical artifact mentioned by the philosopher Plato in book 2 of his Republic (2.359a–2.360d). It granted its owner the power to become invisible at will. Through the story of the ring, Republic considers whether an intelligent person would be moral if he did not have to fear being caught and punished.

  4. What that ex-KGB communist BS artist Putin Didn't Tell the American People
    You LEFTIST, PROGRESSIVE,OBAMA WORSHIPING, ASS-KISSING, IDIOTS AND TRAITORS who sided against your own country really should read this but I bet you don't.

    And, if you don't like the source, I invite you to prove its not true.
    It's not what Vladimir Putin's New York Times op-ed says that's so worrisome; it's what it doesn't say. As a Russian and as someone who has been to Syria multiple times since the beginning of the conflict to investigate war crimes and other violations, I would like to mention a few things Putin overlooked.

    There is not a single mention in Putin's article, addressed to the American people, of the egregious crimes committed by the Syrian government and extensively documented by the UN Commission of Inquiry, local and international human rights groups, and numerous journalists: deliberate and indiscriminate killings of tens of thousands of civilians, executions, torture, enforced disappearances and arbitrary arrests. His op-ed also makes no mention of Russia's ongoing transfer of arms to Assad throughout the past two and a half years.

    The Russian president strategically emphasizes the role of Islamic extremists in the Syrian conflict. Yes, many rebel groups have committed abuses and atrocities. Yet Putin fails to mention that it is the Syrian government that is responsible for shooting peaceful protesters (before the conflict even started) and detaining and torturing their leaders -- many of whom remain detained -- and that the continued failure of the international community to respond to atrocities in Syria allows crimes on all sides to continue unaddressed.

    I don't need Putin to tell me that terrorists are beheading Christians and burning churches. I don't need him to tell me that al quaeda in Syria disebowels people and eats their guts. I don't even need for him to tell me that terrorists drag parents out of their homes to watch their children being shot in the head. The reason I don't need Putin to tell me is because I have Parents who lived through his Communist hold on the people.
    So read Vladimir Putin’s open letter , it might make you look at him in an entirely different light.
    Putin’s is looking for in Russia’s best interest, he wants the world to know that HE is the one who is the mighty one, and that Obama is the weak one. You would have to be blind not to see what he is all about.


  5. One Year Ago, Four Americans died in the jihadi attack on our consulate in Benghazi. Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, two retired SEALS who were working as civilian security specialists in Benghazi, learned that Ambassador Stevens and nine other people at the consulate were under attack and rushed to their defense. The fourth man was Sean Smith, father of three, an Air Force veteran, working for the State Department in Libya. We all know that, what we do not know is WHY aren’t the killers brought to justice like our president told us ONE YEAR AGO. I understand that this KILLER has been doing interview all over the world, so if these media people can find him why can’t the country with the best available agents find and get this guy! It’s been a year now and nothing!!
    Bottom line! We are covering Hillary's Susan Rice's, and Obama's Ass.

  6. AOW, I think you are going to need to start publishing Nicompoopery in monthly installments. Sadly, it would probably take your readers amonth to get through each installment.

    1. Jim,
      I can't possibly list in one "Nincompoopery" post all the nincompoopery that is afoot.

      I feel as if I'm chronicling the devolution of America.

  7. Talking about Nicompoopery I never thought I'd live to see the day when a Russian leader is dictating foreign policy to our own president. It is reprehensible how far our country has fallen. I for one am not going to sit here and take this.Obama is a total embarrassment!

  8. There is an old saying from the Far-East which is that "Nothing is so bad that action will not make it worse." If Obama get his way in have a military strike in Syria that ancient proverb may turn out to be true.

  9. There is no national or rational reason for the sake of America homeland security for the Untied States to get involved in this civil war in Syria. America needs to keep out of it.

  10. This takes the cake, "Jeb Bush awards Hillary Liberty Medal on eve of Benghazi anniversary!" WTHeck even conservatives have gone nuts and are becoming worse than liberals. What do you expect his wife is Mexican, they are for illegal immigration, so why not! Thank God Jebbie never made it to what used to be our White House!

    1. Liz,
      There has been talk that Jeb Bush will be on the GOP ticket in 2016.

    2. So that means we will lose another election because of our own stupidity .

    3. Oh Goodness! I just wrote the same thing down below before I discovered Ms Gonzales' comment.

      "Great minds thinking alike, maybe? " ;-)

      As far as JEB BUSH is concerned


      I've reached the point where I'd rather have an out-and-out Marxist degenerate in the White House than a FAKE Conservative. I do NOT like ANY of the Bushes, except maybe Barbara and Laura. They've done every bit as much to wreck this country as Clinton and Obama, believe me.

  11. Bodecea,
    Are enough Americans paying attention?

    There is a lot of anger out there, but somehow there is not fury.

    The final stanza of T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men" (1925):

    This is the way the world ends
    This is the way the world ends
    This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang but a whimper.

    See this overview information at Wikipedia.

  12. [I intended to put this comment here and not above]

    FYI...US-Russia reach agreement on Syria weapons:

    After days of intense negotiations, the United States and Russia reached agreement Saturday on a framework to secure and destroy Syria's chemical weapons by mid-2014 and impose U.N. penalties if the Assad government fails to comply....

    Perhaps if the focus on Syria shifts away from that matter, the American people will start paying attention to other matters -- including our ailing economy, the hikes in health insurance rates (Mr. AOW's just went up almost 40% for 2014 along with various reduced benefits), Benghazi-gate, etc.

    Notice that I said PERHAPS! I am very concerned that the attention span of Americans today is that of a gnat!

  13. The First lady wants people to drink more plain water because it’s healthy, as if this was breaking news!
    No one need the fat one to tell them how to live. Jeeze. She needs to get her own life.
    Next she will be telling us how to wipe our ass.

  14. Happy New Year to ALL. Our Jewish friends

  15. Of all the outrage and absurdity listed THIS headline really takes the cake:

    Jeb Bush awards Hillary Liberty Medal on eve of Benghazi anniversary

    That should win THE TRIPLE PHOOEY AWARD!!!

    1. FT,

      No kidding!

      WE THE PEOPLE have lost our voice because we have weasels posing as leaders.

  16. Jebbie is going to have to a whole lot better than this to get my vote. I wrote about his niece GWs daughter Barbara claiming Hillary is the full package for 2016 and when she was asked if she would vote for Clinton her answer was, "Depends on who is running against her." [paraphrased] She must have an inside view of course. To bad she was not like Jenna and kept her mouth shut! Obviously Barbara leaned nothing from the Bush women, including her lovely mother. I wrote about all this in my premier post "Haunted."

    You may like my weekend post if you can get over to read it!


  17. "Fort Hood gunman left unchecked because of political correctness and law suit against U.S. government has been filed"

    Somehow we have GOT to limit the ability of people to bring SUIT for grievances -- real or imagined.

    Sue rhymes with Unohoo, and the abuse of the practice has brought about the RUIN of this country.

    Instead of being ruled by LAWS, we have been ruled by LAWYERS and JUDGES for a very long time.

    It STINKS!

    1. FT,
      Here's one for you....Our Constitution does not make it a requirement for a SCOTUS justice to be a lawyer. I think that such a lack of requirement was deliberate on the part of our Founders.

  18. Ipso Facto,
    Next she will be telling us how to wipe our ass.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the rationing of toilet paper. I have seen at least one article about how certain brands of toilet paper are "clogging up the sewer systems." Quilted Northern and Cottonelle will likely be banned in our lifetime. Watch for it.

  19. Do you want to see Nincompoopery — And Worse?

    What's worse is that"President Obama’s job rating holds steady despite Syria strife.
    President Obama has been fighting an uphill battle to win support for an authorization to strike Syria in retaliation for an Aug. 21 Sarin gas attack, but a CNN/ORC poll taken following Tuesday night’s East Room address shows good news for the President’s Syria policy. "

    Obama will have a legacy of Nincompoopery, And Worse!

    She call this ABSURD address “good news for the President’s Syria policy“.
    I would call this an astounding failure~

  20. Yes indeed, Obama’s legacy is a legacy of failed policies!
    How can these morons on the left even think that Obama cane out of this thing like a hero?
    They make Obama a hero because he caved to the former head of the KGB! Don’t these idiots on the left realize that Putin is determined to help the Iranians get a nuclear bomb so that they could fulfill their threat wipe Israel off the map!
    Did you ever play poker with a fox? Comrade Putin is playing Obomber like a drum. and the Messiah don’t even realize it. Not even after he wrote that self-serving piece of crap in the NY Times. .
    That progressive idiot should really stop posting when she’s high, and had a bit to much to drink.

  22. A new low for this regime. Beyond words.

  23. Will President Obama be the First black President, and the LAST?
    Now that the barrier has been broken, one must only wonder, will president Obama be the first black president, and the last?
    President Obama robbed African Americans in so many ways. We titled him America’s first Black President, and African-American to benefit from this. He came from a background of the African Muslims and was an inspiration to all African Americans.

    Now he has kidnapped the black race in America and is making us all look as if we cheated America by picking the wrong Black man as our First Black President..

    He promised Americans hope and change gave us false hope and change for the worse. How can this possibly be happening in our country?
    We have taken a step backwards in stead of forward and that is not the hope or change we expected. . Folks have become more divided then ever before. I can’t say that I blame some of the older black folks for harboring the hatred against whites for the way they were treated in the past. I wasn’t around in those days so I can’t speak for those who were. They tell us that their life was terrible back them, and from what I have read, I can understand that it must have been true. But those problems are gone, we don’t see any of the segregation any more and we must move on. No, memories won't go away as long as you keep harboring those memories and playing the race card. We must look deeper into life than the color of our skin .

  24. "BOILERPLATE" is the curse of the blogosphere.

    The trouble with the First Amendment is that the Founders, apparently, did not realize how easily it could -- and WOULD -- be abused.

  25. Free Thinke: "BOILERPLATE is the curse of the blogosphere.”

    Free Thinke, it's people like you Free Thinke who are the curse of the blogosphere. Do you think for one minute that your STUPID poetry is any better than anyone else's posts? If you do you are highly mistaken. I have seen lots of people on lots of blogs saying that your poetry is a pain in the ass, and I completely agree.If your pride has been hurt, then it's too damn bad. I don't think that you give a crap about anyone else feelings so why should I or anyone else care about yours? Haven't you found that the the most narcissistic people are often equally the most self-loathing and insecure? I have.This is why I loathe irritating, narcissistic, self-centered, people who think that their poetry is hot shit!

  26. Mr. Free Thinke, I remember very well the HATEFUL group of blog posts YOU wrote about Shaw Kenawe from Progressive Eruptions, and continued them for days on end. It didn’t seem to bother you too much when they wrote the most vile, disgusting insults. In fact you must have enjoyed them as you wrote that garbage for weeks. And who was the blunt of those vile, disgusting insults? Some of them were the worst I have read on the internet. Not you, but Shaw. They threw the worst insults you've ever heard at her day after day after day. Did it bother you, NO it didn’t, in fact you got a charge out of them didn’t you. It seemed as if you had a feeling of great elation. And what was the out come? They ran you of the blogisphere! YOU are the vile, disgusting human being for doing what you did. You have some nerve to criticize someone else’s posts, I have some advice for you, suck it up!

  27. As always we learn more about Peter from what he ways about Paul than we learn about Paul.

  28. Bist Du damit einverstanden

  29. This is getting to be more exciting than a Day Time Soap Opera.
    By the way, I think that FT's poetry is pathetic also.
    It's food for the Progressives...

  30. This comment has been removed by the author.

  31. Frankly, I think that some people are incapable of getting the point of FT's material in verse and his satiric posts, the latter at his own web site, which he closed last June.

    Anyway, here's what I do when people post things that I don't want to read: I don't read those things.

  32. Replies
    1. Duck,
      From what I can tell without doing any research, that tactic is disgusting! Life-threatening for some, too. Mr. AOW and I absolutely dread power outages because, without electricity, his hospital bed is frozen in position. Early on, a power outage meant a soiled bed. Not now, thank God!

      You have to know that I do not condone any such doings as shutting off electricity to teach people a lesson. Power rationing, of course, is a different matter entirely.

      On a daily basis, I say more than once, "WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?"

  33. Tit for tat:

    Police shoot, kill unarmed black man seeking assistance after ‘serious’ car accident


    1. From the link: police said “[t]he evidence revealed that Mr. Ferrell did advance on Officer Kerrick and the investigation showed that the subsequent shooting of Mr. Ferrell was excessive. Our investigation has shown that Officer Kerrick did not have a lawful right to discharge his weapon during this encounter.”

      I don't know what the racial dynamics are in Charlotte.

  34. AOW, I get it, I just don't like what he did to Shaw . He did a horrible thing and now he expects us to appreciate HIS poetry ? I don't think so. Sorry, but I can't and won't forgive him. He can open or close his blog, I don't give a damn, I won't read his crap.

    1. I wonder what Shaw's reaction was? For all I know, she understood what was going on.

      Read or don't read as you see fit. Your call.

  35. So moronic Hanoi John said we will use "mild, limited" force and then get backed in the corner by Russia and the fools act like it was "the plan" all along. The fools in the White House have effectively started the cold war again and will start WW 3 if they are not stopped from opening their idiotic mouths.

    I think Hanoi John watched too many episodes of Star Wars as a child..
    Where is George Bush when we need him?.

  36. Elizabeth O'Bagy is just the latest in a long line of "analysts" working for ego-massaging think tanks who
    have very little to offer regarding foreign policy or concrete analysis in a post-Arab Spring political paradigm.

    The falsification of her CV is a minor problem in light of what appears to be corrupted scholarship. As a freelance research analyst and investigative journalist, I remain free of the corrupting influences of power, pandering and $$. Analysis must remain apolitical to be effective.

    Tammy Swofford

  37. In reference to Free Thinke and Shaw Kenawe, I guess you can say it's KARMA! What Goes Around Comes Around.
    A person’s actions, whether good or bad, will often have consequences for that person. Thus the concept of Karma.

  38. That Elizabeth O'Bagy is one more example of why the Left is so dangerous. Look at all the young inexperienced women (and men) in prominent positions. No experience required apparently.

    Right Truth

    1. p.s. Unless your experience is in community organizing, telling lies, and supporting Lefty Progressive agendas.


    2. Debbie,
      There is more to the O'Bagy story. See Who funds Syrian rebel advocate O’Bagy and the Syrian Emergency Task Force? You do at the Daily Caller. Our mutual friend Tammy Swofford sent me that link. Worth reading.
