    I’m going to steal this and post it here, from another site;

    “If Chamberlain had a son. . . “

    • formwiz

      No, Chamberlain was an honorable man trying to save his country from another war in the trenches.

      Even Churchill had nice things to say about ol’ Neville.

      His Poutiness, in those days, would have been on Hitler’s side.

      Truly, look up the alliance between the Narzis and Islam.

        formwiz,

        *No, Chamberlain was an honorable man trying to save his country from another war in the trenches.* As Mr. Churchill said…***It fell to Neville Chamberlain in one of the supreme crises of the world to be contradicted by events, to be disappointed in his hopes, and to be deceived and cheated by a wicked man. But what were these hopes in which he was disappointed? What were these wishes in which he was frustrated? What was that faith that was abused? They were surely among the most noble and benevolent instincts of the human heart-the love of peace, the toil for peace, the strife for peace, the pursuit of peace, even at great peril, and certainly to the utter disdain of popularity or clamour. Whatever else history may or may not say about these terrible, tremendous years, we can be sure that Neville Chamberlain acted with perfect sincerity according to his lights and strove to the utmost of his capacity and authority, which were powerful, to save the world from the awful, devastating struggle in which we are now engaged. This alone will stand him in good stead as far as what is called the verdict of history is concerned.***

        Even Churchill had nice things to say about ol’ Neville.* …*** He had a physical and moral toughness of fibre which enabled him all through his varied career to endure misfortune and disappointment without being unduly discouraged or wearied. He had a precision of mind and an aptitude for business which raised him far above the ordinary levels of our generation. He had a firmness of spirit which was not often elated by success, seldom downcast by failure, and never swayed by panic. when, contrary to all his hopes, beliefs and exertions, the war came upon him, and when, as he himself said, all that he had worked for was shattered, there was no man more resolved to pursue the unsought quarrel to the death. The same qualities which made him one of the last to enter the war, made him one of the last who would quit it before the full victory of a righteous cause was won.

        …He met the approach of death with a steady eye. If he grieved at all, it was that he could not be a spectator of our victory; but I think he died with the comfort of knowing that his country had, at least, turned the corner.***

          Churchill was a great man with strength of character and understanding of other men’s faults and strengths….he understood Chamberlain in a way that few others did….the difference between Chamberlain and obama is the intention of their actions….obama, of course, has shown his disdain for America and Americans, and that dictates whatever actions he undertakes….but that we could have been blessed to have a man like Chamberlain instead of the traitor we are stuck with….

        Few people remember that the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were both pro-Nazi.

        • Lucius Severus Pertinax

          That was the thing about Chamberlain: there was no evil in the man. As is often the case, those with no evil in themselves are too often blind to it in others.

          The above, of course, does not apply to Obama…..

          • SteveInCO

            As I understand it, Chamberlain’s issue is that he thought an all-out war, with the technology of the time, would be literally devastating; the sort of thing we today imagine would be the result of a nuclear exchange. He imagined Britain burned to a crisp and/or gassed completely.

            What happened was bad enough, but then again, it was ultimately necessary given the alternative.

    • David Preston

      Chamberlain was also responsible for building up Britain’s air defenses in the 1930’s which gave them the slim edge to beat the Germans in the Blitz

    • John Carifidy

      I’d say he resembles Vidkun Quisling more than Chamberlain, minus Quisling’s experience in the military, diplomatic or administrative posts.

    Barack HUSSEIN Sotero Obama…

    Who remembers the Caesar that let the Vandals, Goths and Visigoths overrun Rome?

  • Winston Churchill said after Munich

    ” I do not grudge our loyal, brave people, who were ready to do their duty no matter what the cost, who never flinched under the strain of last week – I do not grudge them the natural, spontaneous outburst of joy and relief when they learned that the hard ordeal would no longer be required of them at the moment; but they should know the truth. They should know that there has been gross neglect and deficiency in our defences; they should know that we have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road; they should know that we have passed an awful milestone in our history, when the whole equilibrium of Europe has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies:

    “Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting.”

    And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.”

    Hey, if Quisling can become a word for “traitor”, why can’t Obama?

    • KenH

      It will
      And if this shakes out like it probably will, he stands a far better than average chance of not living though it at all

      • Ken H, that really should have happened 7 years ago. Maybe 8.

        • John M

          should have…
          But didn’t. Now we’re stuck with what he has promulgated.

    “Liberalism is the hope that the most rotten of people, and agendas, somehow have a good quality and it will persevere over evil. In the real world that hope is called insanity. -anon.-

  • finebammer

    give the guy this much credit. he didn’t lie about his intentions. fundamentally transforming America. remember Joe the Plumber??

    Obama said he would sit down across from Iran and unconditionally negotiate.

    i sit in amazement that the American people bought this clown for two terms until i remember today’s GOP. remember McCain suspending his campaign to run back to DC during the crash in ’08??

    did it really shock anyone when Romney’s son said Mitt really didnt want to do what it took to win the presidency after the ’12’ election??

    theyre all just as responsible as Obama. remember that when you see or hear of the Republican candidates kissing Romney’s ring.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Romney had the country and Ross Perot’ed on us. he did not do as was reasonable. He failed the country. He would have been a Progressive, but, he would not have done much of the damage Obama has created and assisted occur.

      McCain is worthless as someone who would really help the country. His name is shamed for his lack of action. He refused to engage a black man on the issues because he was black. That failure to engage was traitorous.

  • Calvin

    This all presupposes that we win the coming war between civilizations. Obama has given the other side a new, dangerous tool to be used in that war while at the same time he has been degrading the most potent force to oppose the coming dark age.

  • Cliff

    By far our worst president. I have found nothing to admire.

  • Iconoclast

    Surely, if the Whine-O’s had any spines or reproductive organs and the dimocraps any love of country, this latest disaster would result in impeachment “for high crimes” followed swiftly by trial for treason and subsequent execution. Too many palms have been greased, too many ignorant or illegal in the populace for this to happen now and the fallout from a successful man-applied extrajudicial penalty might well be worse than enduring another 18 months of sabotage by this [redacted]. Still, it would be a marvelous joy to see it fry from a lightening bolt off the first tee or some similar event. The resultant jubilation would be more than justified by the harm it has caused this nation.

    • They don’t have any of the above, and it would be a National Holiday if the MGMMPOS were fried by God.

  • Lucius Severus Pertinax

    Back in May, Obama said: “Look, 20 years from now, I’m still going to be around, God willing. If Iran has a nuclear weapon, it’s my name on this”

    But Barry, what will that matter to the dead?

    • eon

      I’m still wondering if he was thinking, “….And I will be proud of having so leveled the playing field between the mystical, enlightened East and the evil, materialistic West” when he said that.

      The One is an egotistical, narcissistic, primitivist mystic of the type Ayn Rand warned about in Galt’s radio speech in Atlas Shrugged. A “mystic of muscle” who believes that everything about the West is evil, and that everything in civilization and nature must bend to His indomitable will.

      He probably resents the probe that just flew by Pluto because he couldn’t recall it to make it hover over him 24/7 to record every one of his brilliant utterances.

      BTW, after commuting 46 drug-criminals’ sentences, he’s visiting a Federal prison today to demand more of the same. Too many (ethnicity which is never mentioned in news reports of violent crimes) behind bars, dont’cha know.

      I have a (rather forlorn) hope that in the end, such a facility will be his permanent address. Preferably SuperMax.

    It has become obvious that this man is not connected to reality in any meaningful way.
    Between the insulation that surrounds any President and his ego he receives no information that contradicts the dream world he resides in.

    • Bill G

      And I forgot to add that that ‘toon would be excellent as a T-shirt.

  • Paladin

    In my humble opinion, Obama made this deal knowing that Israel will backstop him. I will bet the Saudi’s are talking with the Israelis about a joint air strike against Iran. Saudi’s will lead an initial strike to take out the defenses, then Israel will take out all the nuke sites with whatever it takes, including nukes. Tear it down, scatter the stones,and salt the earth…

      Can we offer them a tanker refuelling or three to get them as far as the White House?

    So here is my morning…

    I’m reading DBD and all this stuff about Shiner Bock, and I’ve never heard of this beer.

    So into the supermarket I go.

    Boom!

    There’s a platform of 12-packs of Shiner Bock on special.

    I buys one. Yes, Buys.

    Num Num Num Num Num.

    I loves my Shiner Bock.

    And it was Chris at DBD that turns me one to the Shiner Bocks.

    Num Num Num Num num.

    • Chris Muir

      I didn’t know about it ’til by best friend Mike told me about it.He is, natch, a Texan.

    • Jon

      They make a pretty killer hefewiezen, too. Smooth as a baby’s butt.

    • Paladin

      I think Ziegenbock is better. Only available in Texas. Use to hit Razoo’s (motto: Everything that grows in the swamp) and get a bowl of red beans and rice, order of Hot-wings and a Ziegenbock or three. Great lunch.

  • Kevin M

    Wow. Did I misspell hilarious words there???!!!!

    Hard times coming.

  • We are so screwed. Unless we can do what must be done, and stop this crap before it really gets rolling, we’re totally and forever screwed.

  • NotYetInACamp

    I try to fill my time with little things within my sphere while I wait for what this enemy within is doing to reach a time that we can transform fundamentally what he has done into nothingness. Many people will be hurt. It is with sadness that I see what he has done, and, what his effects are and will be. The madness in people has been released. People’s pursuit of pleasure has been engaged with no beneficial end. People defecate on the flag they say is of slavery, The American Flag, The Stars and Stripes. Yet they only show that they are only what comes out of them. I pity them as they are slaves of their minds.
    Take your iodine. Look for the nascent, or pure iodine. It works best to prevent radioactive iodine from depositing in your thyroid.

    That person may be a hero to what and who he really believes in. Be it the Marxism or the Islam of his ancestors. Obama has extended Islam. So have his family across parts of Africa, with Obama’s help.

    My snail mail should have reached your address by yesterday.
    Be encouraged.

    I predict that Iran will celebrate the inauguration of our next president by detonating their first nuclear device.
