"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

Last week I excoriated Democrats for being a party that no longer believes in the US Constitution, individual rights and the rule of law.  Today I excoriate the Republicans for being unable or unwilling to defend, protect and preserve the same.
This administration is the greatest law breaker in the history of the Republic and the President both deserves and must be impeached.  The problem is that because impeachment is a political solution to political and/or criminal "high crimes and misdemeanors" you cannot successful impeach anyone unless you have 67 votes in the Senate.  That in turn would mean that you have convinced a significant number of Senators in both parties that the  acts which warrant impeachment must be exorcised and more importantly the people want this to be done.
The Republican Party have begun to do neither.  In fact it is doubtful that they could even muster all 45 Republican votes in the Senate if they should have to vote on Articles of Impeachment.
The reasons for these are political and illustrate a timidity and cluelessness  that make the party of Lincoln, TR, Eisenhower and Reagan,  political eunuchs of historical precedent.  They are so fearful of being labled  "racists" for rightfully beginning to build a case that is self evident, to impeach the worst, most dangerous and most destructive President in our history, that they are in a state of political paralysis.  Meanwhile the country and the people suffer.

A dying democracy is where we find the United States today and the Democratic Party has become that cancer.
I don't know any longer, if it is even possible  for Democrats to feel shame about what their leaders say and do and in turn what they celebrate, support or simply tolerate from those same leaders.
I also don't know if Democrats can be separated, even for a brief time, from their collective smug and arrogant cynicism in order for them to adopt, display and embrace a sense of  honor. as it has been understood throughout the annals of Western Civilization.
I for one,  am done with trying to have an honest and candid debate or discussion with those who are prepared to defend this President regardless of evidence, now mountainous, as to his incompetence, his disingenuousness, his derision toward shared traditional values as well as common sense.
The leadership of this "woebegone" party has no collective or individual  conscience and because of this it's rank and file are rapidly losing theirs.

"Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim,"

With these words Robert Bergdahl gave the Islamic victory blessing in the White House  Rose Garden while the President looked on smiling.  This moment had been a long time coming as Hillary Clinton after first applauding this prisoner exchange and who now voices her reservation due to the uproar, has to live with the disclosure that direct negotiations were conducted with the Taliban while she was Secretary of State.

This President is also rumored to have had secret and indirect negotiations with Hamas prior to their new alliance with Fatah and with Iran prior to the Russian involvement in the Iranian nuclear program.

In short through word and deed this President and his subordinates have kowtowed to the worst elements of political, terrorist Salafist Islam.  They continue to do it even as everything  now blows up in their face.  They have placed both serving military personnel and American civilians abroad in mortal danger.
These are photos, obtained by WikiLeaks that match the names of the detainees released by the Department of Defense. <strong>T</strong>he Department of Defense would neither confirm nor deny their accuracy.<strong> Khair Ulla Said Wali Khairkhwa </strong>was an early member of the Taliban in 1994 and was interior minister during the Taliban's rule. He was arrested in Pakistan and was transferred to Guantanamo in May 2002. During questioning, Khairkhwa denied all knowledge of extremist activities.
<strong>Mullah Mohammad Fazl </strong>commanded the main force fighting the U.S.-backed Northern Alliance in 2001, and served as chief of army staff under the Taliban regime. Fazl was detained after surrendering to Abdul Rashid Dostam, the leader of Afghanistan's Uzbek community, in November 2001. He was transferred into U.S. custody in December 2001 and was one of the first arrivals at Guantanamo, where he was assessed as having high intelligence value.
<strong>Mullah Norullah Noori </strong>served as governor of Balkh province in the Taliban regime and played some role in coordinating the fight against the Northern Alliance. Like Fazl, Noori was detained after surrendering to Dostam, the Uzbek leader, in 2001.
<strong>Abdul Haq Wasiq </strong>was the deputy chief of the Taliban regime's intelligence service. Wasiq claimed, according to an administrative review, that he was arrested while trying to help the United States locate senior Taliban figures. He denied any links to militant groups.
<strong>Mohammad Nabi Omari </strong>was a minor Taliban official in Khost Province and was the Taliban's chief of communications and helped al Qaeda members escape from Afghanistan to Pakistan. He also said that he had worked with a U.S. operative named Mark to try to track down Taliban leader Mullah Omar.
This time  he may well have crossed the "Mendoza line" on the road to impeachment.  In releasing the worst of the worst of the Taliban and then lying about the conditions of the release, Obama has violated his oath of office to protect the nation and violated the law by not informing Congress 30 days in advance of his attention to do this as well as giving "aid and comfort" to an acknowledged terrorist enemy.

Many believe that he was seeking something dramatic to take the unfolding and endless scandal of the VA off the front pages.  Others believe that this exchange would be applauded in the same way the killing of Bin Laden was celebrated.  And still others felt that this was so dramatic that it would neuter the predictably negative reaction to the job and economy killing regulations that the radical out of control EPA has just proposed.

Everything this Imperial President does is political.  He has established an administrative state which has neutered our Constitutional Republic.  He operates for himself and his increasingly self evident agenda of making the United States irrelevant in the affairs of the world.  He believes that the US is and has been the problem globally for a long, long time.  He hates all capitalism save  the crony  capitalism which bankrolls his grand design and hence does all he can to make sure the country never recovers from the doldrums that he, after five and a half years in office, has in large part caused.

June 6th turned into June 7th as the survivors of the initial landings began to leave the beach heads and move inland.  In their wake came thousands of more allied troops discharging from their landing crafts in shoulder high water to avoid booby traps and mines close to the five landing zones.  Operation Overlord was one day old.

Once up and over the bluffs that overlooked the beaches, the men found themselves confronting miles of hedgerows stretching from Cherbourg to Alecon and Mayenne , north to south, and from Falaise and Argentan to Avaranches, east to west.  They called this advance "Operation Cobra".

The hedgerows were ancient  from  Roman times and were called "Le Bocage" by the people of Normandy.

They consisted of earthen banks 5 to 6 feet high and 12 feet wide across the bottom.  They were anchored together by trees on their top and thick dense vegetation on their sides  whose root systems combined to make them as solid as stone walls.  They had been built to delineate land boundaries and provide natural fencing for pasture and farm land.

Taken as a whole they formed a crazy patchwork maze with sunken roads caused by the buildup of earth to form the hedges. These roads were the only means to travel through the maze by wagon or motor vehicle.  Each field rimmed by these hedgerows had one entrance and the Allies had no maps.
