    Well, roll of the dice these days in an administration that seems to be so naive and uninformed or whatever. They lack experience and they seem to be living in a whole different world.

    Our priorities are set in stone thanks to Obama. Save, Save, Budget and pray that our National Security is up to the job and that Obama’s game of reducing Defense will work out because if not the guy will be on thin ice. And then maybe, impeached.

    North Koreans among 40 dead at Iran nuke plant

    [The explosions at Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility Jan. 21 killed
    at least 40 people, including two North Koreans, WND learned


    The bodies of 11 of the technicians and scientists are beyond recognition,
    a member of the security forces at the facility told WND. According to this
    source, 60 others are in critical condition and have been transferred to the
    central base of the 27th Division of Mohammad Rassool Allah, which is
    equipped with a modern medical facility and is between Tehran and Qom.

    At the time of the explosions, the source said, 203 Iranian scientists
    and technicians along with 16 North Koreans had been logged in at
    the site, though the initial report listed 240 people.

    The day before the explosions, the North Koreans had brought in new
    equipment, described by the source as touch-screen monitors the size
    of TVs that were installed in the monitoring room and some new parts
    that were installed in the centrifuges before the start of the enrichment

    Hagel says he will focus on prepping
    military for ‘all options’ against Iran

    [Former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) says he will focus on making sure
    the U.S. military is prepared for any scenario in Iran and is committed
    to “all options” to counter aggression from Tehran.

    Hagel also said he agrees with President Obama’s plans for “steady”
    reductions of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, supports U.S. aid for missile
    systems in Israel and thinks sequester would be “devastating,”
    according to wide-ranging policy answers the nominee for Defense
    secretary submitted to the Senate Armed Services Committee.]


  • had enough yet?

    The people Obama is selecting aren’t being selected for their qualifications. They’re being selected based on their willingness to serve their master dutifully and without asking questions. Period. And just as we saw in his last administration, most of them will be people who were instrumental in getting him elected. It’s an Obama world for the next four years, and all we can do is pray that we don’t get attacked while these people are running the show …
