Today Glenn Beck had former CIA expert, Michael Scheuer, on to discuss the lunacy of Obama’s newest plan to send National Guard troops to protect our borders…WITHOUT GUNS…and AS VOLUNTEERS! WTF is PrezBO thinking? We can pay $1 a day to young girls to not get pregnant, but we can’t pay (nor equip) or National Guard to protect our southern border? What kind of messed up stuff is that?
Oh, yeah… the Barack Obama kind of messed-up stuff. *sigh* I am beyond the point of being surprised by this man-boy’s actions anymore.
Tonight on O’Reilly, Sens. Lindsey Graham & Joe Lieberman discussed their amendment to the current war-funding bill, that would prohibit the release of the thousands of photos of alleged detainee abuse at detention facilities overseas. O’Reilly calls Pelosi and Barney Frank out for their willingness to put our soldiers’ lives on the line to appease their liberal, bed-wetting, peace-at-any-price constituents in their respective districts.
The release of these photos will be a win/lose situation. A win for the Islamofascists and a lose for western nations that have taken up the mantle to battle them. I hope the Graham/Lieberman amendment stays in the bill. Please call your elected representatives and tell them you will accept nothing less. The lives of American troops are at stake.
As was reported widely, the backup Air Force One did a low fly-by over lower Manhattan yesterday, scaring the bejezus out of everyone. Early blame was placed on the White House Military Officer, but it’s coming out today from the FAA that the Feds knew the fly-over photo-op would cause a panic. They just didn’t give a damn.
CBS 2 HD has discovered the feds will have plenty to question.
Federal officials knew that sending two fighter jets and Air Force One to buzz ground zero and Lady Liberty might set off nightmarish fears of a 9/11 replay, but they still ordered the photo-op kept secret from the public.

In a memo obtained by CBS 2 HD the Federal Aviation Administration’s James Johnston said the agency was aware of “the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes” in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor’s office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.
This morning there was an incident where a 747 (which turned out to be Air Force One’s backup plane) was flying low over Manhattan, buzzing buildings and the Statue of Liberty. It was accompanied by two F16 fighter jets and scared the bejezus out of everyone. Do you blame them for being afraid?
Now it comes out that the Obama administration approved this bone-headed move. Does he not give two SHI*S about Americans? Especially New Yorkers? Even though 9/11/01 was 8 years ago, it is STILL etched in everyone’s minds, and the fact that this Administration approved this photo-op just shows you how thoughtless this man is.
And like others have said – the blame will be laid at the foot of these pilots, but will fall short of the Administration. Mayor Bloomberg was none too pleased, either. And even Chuck Schumer was outraged!
I’m still incredulous that this even happened. Can you imagine if the FAA would have asked George W. Bush if they could low-fly a 747 over Manhattan? That person would have left the Oval with a boot up his ass! Are you kidding me, Obama??? Are you SERIOUSLY kidding me????
