Nancy Pelosi visits Dalai Lama, he prays to rid her of ‘negative attitudes’

In other words, this is known as a junket at tax payers expense. It is curious that Nancy chose the Dalai Lama to heal her wounds. Once more she rambles along, but anyway, Northern India can be nice this time of year.

If there’s anyone on earth who can heal Nancy Pelosi’s bitterness and “negative attitudes,” it might be the Dalai Lama.

During a Congressional visit to Dharamsala, North India, on Tuesday, the House Minority Leader admitted the Dalai Lama was praying for her to rid herself of her negativity.

The most curious part of her speech came when Pelosi said she wouldn’t delve into the “brutal tactics of the Chinese government,” which rules Tibet.

Her reason?

“His Holiness prayed for me that I would rid myself of my negative attitude about dwelling on the negative too much,” Pelosi confessed to the crowd.

The California politician has called herself “a devout, practicing Catholic,” yet her staunch pro-choice position on abortion stands in opposition to the church.

It remains to be seen if the Dalai Lama’s supplication on Pelosi’s behalf has indeed done the trick. H/T: The Blaze

Nancy Pelosi ‘American people don’t want a new direction’

We couldn’t pick better leadership for the Dems. They are toying with radical Muslim Ellison for heading up the party after the old war-horse Howard Dean decided to hang it up. We have Elizabeth Warren beating the war drums. Speaking of war horses, now Nancy was re-elected for the House leadership. Her ‘debut’ on Sunday of the new look was simply amazing. The prowess of her intellectual acumen almost matched “you have to see what’s in the bill to know what’s in it.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that despite Democrats losing the House, Senate, and almost two-thirds of state houses, the American people don’t want a new direction.

The California congressman appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday and instead said the issue facing Democrats is simply a failure of communication.

DICKERSON: “The Democratic Party is in a moment of questioning about its identity. You were reelected to lead the Democrats in the House. What do you tell Democrats who want a new direction and then, go to you, what are you going to do differently?”
PELOSI: “Well, I don’t think people want a new direction. Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through. But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility. To be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.”

Pelosi also downplayed her party’s losses in 2010 and 2016, telling CBS’s John Dickerson “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008.”

DICKERSON: “Here’s my question, though, Democrats since 2008, the numbers are ghastly for Democrats. Democrats are down 10 percent, in the House down 19.3 percent and in governors 35 percent. The Democrats are getting clobbered at every level over multiple elections. That seems like a real crisis for the party?”
PELOSI: “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008, and let me just put that in perspective. When President Clinton was elected, Republicans came in big in the next election. When President Bush was president, we came in big in the next election. When President Obama became president, the Republicans came in big in the next election.”

Yo Nancy Pelosi, we’re saying hi from the Redneck Riviera

After Nancy’s remark about the knuckle draggers yesterday Pelosi: ‘It’s God and Guns’ the reason knuckle draggers won’t vote for Hillary I thought I would take a spin in my way back machine and give you this. Warning, a bit of rough language in clip.

The Grand Old Party will need a big tent to git er done in the coming November election. Here is a reminder to the beltway folks, the political class, we vote too!! We are out here on the Redneck Riviera, clinging to our God and Guns. A time for a bit of a break from the political. Enjoy the day.

Pelosi: ‘It’s God and Guns’ the reason knuckle draggers won’t vote for Hillary

Looks like Nancy had a bit more work done and is sporting a new face look. I tried to look for the low point of this week’s Dem convention. This came close

Nancy Pelosi said that the reason non-educated white males “vote against their economic interests” because of the three “g’s” – God, guns and gays.

Here is my answer

Give me my God and Guns – Lynyrd Skynyred

Recall how the Democrats undercut Bush’s Syrian policy?

Oh the outrage that GOP members of Congress have written Iran letting them know how our Republic works.  GOP senators called ‘traitors’ over letter to Iran on nuke deal  Let us step back in time and look at how the Democrat savants really undercut Bush as he tried to isolate Syria. The GOP wrote a letter, the Democrats visited Assad.

Kerry,Clinton’s sorry Syrian policy has led to this? August 28, 2013 — bunkerville

During the Bush Administration, the Dems did what they could to undermine his policy in attempting to isolate Syria. From Kerry to Pelosi, they defied him and went waltzing over to meet with their “friend” that they were sure was going to be our go to guy in the Middle East. A butcher with massive amounts of chemical weapons, no mind. What is it with all of these Progressives and their infatuation with dictators?

April 5, 2007:

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held talks with Syria’s leader Wednesday despite White House objections, saying she pressed President Bashar Assad over his country’s support for militant groups and passed him a peace message from Israel.

pelosi-large

  

On the March 27, 2011, Clinton insisted, “There’s a different leader in  Syria now. Many of the members of Congress who have gone to  Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.” (The Washington  Post gave this remark three Pinocchios. Clinton later backtracked.)  Yet, ABC, NBC and CBS have not reexamined the comments in the wake of the attack  or its accuracy.

On July 27, 2012, National  Review recounted several politicians who have offered hopeful comments  about Assad. Noah Glyn wrote of Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi  and others.

In 2007, Nancy Pelosi, over strong objections from the  State Department, visited Syria, and said, “The road to Damascus is a road to  peace.” Senator John Kerry predicted that “Syria will change as it embraces a  legitimate relationship with the United States.” Read more:  Newsbusters

It wasn’t so long ago that Kerry made repeated pilgrimage to Syria, meeting with Assad five times between 2009 and 2011.

He famously used the adjective “generous” to describe Assad, as the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens recalled in a column:

On March 16, 2011—the day after the first mass demonstration against the regime—John Kerry said Assad was a man of his word who had been “very generous with me.” He added that under Assad “Syria will move; Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States.” This is the man who might be our next secretary of state. (DONE)

As Michael Rubin recently wrote in Commentary Magazine, Kerry’s staffers described “their collective cringe when, after a motorcycle ride with Bashar al-Assad, he returned to Washington referring to Bashar as ‘my dear friend.’”

Kerry clearly believed Assad was honest and a force for stability. The National Review quoted a WikiLeaks document which revealed Kerry had told the emir of Qatar in November 2010, “Assad is a man who ‘wants to change’ and that Israel should cede the Golan Heights to the Syrians ‘at some point.’”

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Kerry thwarted efforts during the Bush administration to diplomatically isolate Syria after the administration’s own efforts to engage the regime ended in failure in 2003. Kerry served as the Obama administration’s envoy to Assad, leading a delegation to Syria just days after Obama’s inauguration. H/T:The Blaze

The Syrian policy makers, and the ‘Doing stupid stuff’ done in spades

By now most everyone has heard about the food fight going on between Hillary Clinton and Obama’s Syrian policy or lack thereof otherwise known as “doing stupid stuff”.  Hillary Clinton Slams Obama’s “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” Foreign-Policy Mantra… shar.es/1noPFG  Something like that.Let’s take a look as Clinton’s keen insight morphs from Assad being a good guy to well, you know, she wishes to dispense with him as she took care of business in Libya and Egypt. But let me throw in a few more characters in this bizarre play that must have the world in absolute astonishment. Don’t miss the first Hillary clip!

John Kerry

It wasn’t so long ago that Kerry made repeated pilgrimage to Syria, meeting with Assad five times between 2009 and 2011.

As Michael Rubin recently wrote in Commentary Magazine, Kerry’s staffers described “their collective cringe when, after a motorcycle ride with Bashar al-Assad, he returned to Washington referring to Bashar as ‘my dear friend.’”

The National Review detailed more about Kerry’s positive impression of Assad:

After a “long and comprehensive” meeting with Assad in April of that year, Kerry described it as “a very positive discussion.” A month later, Kerry was back in Syria. His spokesman, insisting that “Syria can play a critical role in bringing peace and stability if it makes the strategic decision to do so,” asserted that Kerry had “emerged as one of the primary American interlocutors with the Syrian government.” Despite the senator’s interlocutions, Assad, it appears, has made the wrong “strategic decision.”

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Hillary Clinton and her various changing views on Assad.

At this point, Madame Secretary believes that Bashar al- Assad is the good guy. That was in 2011.

Reporters aren’t interested in exploring aspects of Clinton’s job as Secretary  of State. One such comment not getting attention is her 2011 labeling of Bashar  al-Assad, the man almost  certainly (maybe) behind a devastating chemical weapons attack, as a “reformer.”

On the March 27, 2011, Clinton insisted, “There’s a different leader in  Syria now. Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to  Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.” (The Washington  Post gave this remark three Pinocchios. Clinton later backtracked.)  Yet, ABC, NBC and CBS have not reexamined the comments in the wake of the attack  or its accuracy.

Here are the notes from the clip below, her view takes quite a turn!

Published on Jan 1, 2013 – A SURPRISE at the ending of the clip.

Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State, has been calling over and over since 2011 for the legitimate president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, to leave power and to let a bunch of al-Qaeda supporters known as the Syrian National Council (later Syrian National Coalition) replace him. However, the repeated defeats in battles of her “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and their al-Qaeda Jihadi assistants have caused her much frustration culminating in a blood clot behind her ear. She will be replaced this month by John Kerry.

 

 

Leon Panetta

Back in August of 2012, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says that when Bashar al-Assad loses his grip on power, he wants the Syrian military to remain in place. I am sure Kerry no doubt has an even happier ending.

Delusional Panetta wants Syrian Military to stay, S. Power confused

Depraved and Delusional formerUS Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta tells CNN that the US must make sure that the ruthless genocidal hated Baathist Alawite sect-packed Secret Police Security Forces stay in power after the inevitable overthrow of Dictator Bashar Assad.

Many of us have been looking for what the ending would be in Syria after we dispatched another head of a Middle East country. I happened on a Panetta video whose is equally clueless regarding the administration’s best wishes for a happy ending.

 

 

John Brennan (who now leads the CIA) has previously defended jihad as a “legitimate tenet of Islam.”

On June 29, 2011, John Brennan, who was then a senior adviser to the president and is currently the CIA director, explained the Obama administration’s counterterrorism strategy.

“Our strategy is…shaped by a deeper understanding of al Qaeda’s goals, strategy, and tactics,” Brennan claimed. “I’m not talking about al Qaeda’s grandiose vision of global domination through a violent Islamic caliphate. That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counterterrorism policies against a feckless delusion that is never going to happen. We are not going to elevate these thugs and their murderous aspirations into something larger than they are.”

CIA sending guns to Syrian rebels via Muslim Brotherhood

Yesterday, the Turkish media reported, “Turkey … agreed with the US on a deal involving the transfer of US-engineered unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that could prove crucial in combating terrorism.” The Predator drones, expected to be delivered in June 2012, are supposed to help the Turks combat terrorists, which in Ankara’s narrow definition means the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) crossing into Turkey from the Iraq border.Weekly Standard

Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are allegedly paying for weapons sent to Syrian opposition rebels through CIA operatives working on Turkish soil, the New York Times has reported

Liz Cheney, Elizabeth O’Bagy, Military contractors- a toxic brew an interesting post, if one enjoys the weeds.

This is Moustafa.

And look,

John McCain there in the middle, and a couple of Islamist kidnappers behind him.

setf-mouaz-mccain

Moustafa and O’Bagy arranged McCain’s trip to Syria through the Syrian Emergency Task Force.

You probably have guessed where this is going by now. Mr. Moustafa is a Palestinian Arab, and was involved in the Libya war before he turned up in Syria. He openly hates Israel. He opposed the overthrow of Mohammed Morsi in Egypt.
