Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on July 20, 2014 by Allahpundit

It’s Waffles for breakfast this Sunday morning: John Kerry will be the star guest on all five shows to chat about the Afghan election compromise, Israel’s ground operations against Hamas in Gaza, and the fact that the Russian bear is now gobbling up commercial airline passengers to assert its hegemony in eastern Ukraine. Can the steady hands of Obama and Kerry steer U.S. foreign policy through this maelstrom with no damage to American interests? Spoiler alert: No.

If that sounds unappetizing, Ted Cruz will follow Kerry on “Fox News Sunday” to discuss his already-doomed bill to end Obama’s DACA amnesty for illegal immigrant children and his endorsement of Glenn Beck’s charity efforts at the border. The full line-up is at Politico.

LOL Waffles for breakfast. Did you consider that low fruit, Allah?

hawkdriver on July 20, 2014 at 8:04 AM

Frankly, Kerry should have been replaced, IMHO, after the red line invitation to allow Russia to inspect Syria.

It was stupid to start with and then, no follow-up, no questions about recent chemical attacks. The man is effectively neutered as Secretary of State.

Ya Think:

Pentagon: F-15 pullout from Europe may be on hold
By Jennifer H. Svan
Stars and Stripes
Published: July 17, 2014
*************************

The Pentagon may delay the planned withdrawal of U.S. Air Force F-15C fighter jets from Europe, and possibly increase aircraft rotations to the continent, as part of an effort to reassure allies and boost assistance to the region in the wake of Russia’s recent aggression in Ukraine, officials told members of Congress Wednesday.

In testimony before the House Armed Services Committee, Pentagon leaders were pressed to provide more details about the White House’s “Europe Reassurance Initiative,” a $1 billion funding plan announced by the White House in June. The subject of Wednesday’s hearing was the Pentagon’s fiscal 2015 overseas contingency operations budget request for $58.6 billion. Money for the new European mission is part of that request.

Indications that the Defense Department may reconsider removing some of its F-15C aircraft from Europe come less than a month after Gen. Philip Breedlove, commander of U.S. European Command and North Atlantic Treaty Organization Supreme Allied Command, told reporters at the Pentagon that he expected to see reductions to the F-15 force in Europe.

Breedlove’s statement followed an Air Force announcement in March that it wants to retire 51 F-15C Eagles, including 21 based overseas, starting in fiscal 2015. In Europe, there are 21 F-15Cs assigned to RAF Lakenheath, England, serving with the 493rd Fighter Squadron.

…John Kerry will be the star guest on all five shows to chat about the Afghan election compromise…

The day of the airliner downing, Kerry had his “bags packed and ready to go”. Just call him up and he’ll fly out tout suite.

The next day, during Obama’s speech back in DC, his bags were still packed and he was rarin’ to go. The phone lines to State were more open than a PBS fundraiser. Still no phone calls.

After sitting home on Saturday night, waiting for that phone to finally ring, Kerry decides he’ll call the networks and offer his wisdom and insights to an eager America.

Maybe it would be worth doing some research to find when an American SoS was so avoided by the entire international community during a period of such crisis.

Israel, Ukraine, the EU, Japan, nobody wants Lurch.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, in a telephone call on Saturday, “discussed the situation in Ukraine and advocated urgent measures to settle it,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said. “In the course of a frank, straightforward discussion, the ministers, having exchanged assessments and arguments, agreed on the main point – the need for an absolutely unbiased, independent and open international investigation into the crash of the Malaysian airliner on Ukrainian territory on July 17. The leading role of the International Civil Aviation Organization and the participation of all those who stand ready to help establish the truth is essential in finding out the circumstances of that incident,” the ministry said in a statement. “Lavrov and Kerry came to an agreement on Russia and the United States using their influence with the parties to the Ukrainian conflict to induce them to move in the above mentioned direction. It was stressed that the conflict in Ukraine can have no military solution and can only be settled in a purely peaceful way via a national consensus,” the ministry said.

Although source is Russian, it still looks like the Russians will play Kerry like a violin, just as they did with Hillary. Kerry will give them cover, just like he’s giving Iran cover.

And of course once the ICAO gets there, all the incriminating evidence will be gone.

Executive Order Alert:

Mark Knoller @markknoller · Jul 18

On Monday, Pres Obama signs Exec Order barring federal contractors discrimination on basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
================

Obama to Sign Order Barring Anti-Gay Discrimination
Executive Order Includes No New Exemption for Religiously Affiliated Contractors
**********************

Updated July 18
2014 6:47 p.m. ET
******************

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama on Monday will bar federal contractors from discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers, with no exemption for religiously affiliated contractors, a senior administration official said Friday.

Mr. Obama had already said he would sign the executive order. But the announcement resolves the thorniest question—how religious organizations will be treated. His solution thrilled gay-rights supporters, who had lobbied against the exemption. But it is likely to disappoint some of his allies in the religious community, who had pushed for a broad exemption for religious organizations out of respect for differences of opinion on gay rights.

“There’s no doubt that LGBT workers prevailed,” said Fred Sainz of the Human Rights Campaign, a gay-rights advocacy group.

The Obama executive order will leave in place exemptions that religious contractors currently enjoy, but won’t offer any new ones. To that end, they may continue to choose anybody they like for ministerial positions—discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or anything else if they so choose. For nonreligious posts, these contractors can continue to consider religion in hiring—but not sexual orientation or gender identity.

Thus, a Catholic organization could decline to hire someone for a nonreligious post because she wasn’t Catholic, but not because she was a lesbian.

The White House said the executive order will affect 24,000 companies with federal contracts that collectively employ 28 million people, one-fifth of the nation’s workforce.

The announcement comes in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby Stores that closely held companies can invoke religious objections in covering workers’ contraception. In its ruling, the court extended the religious protections enjoyed by people and churches to certain employers.

Spoiler alert: No.

Heh, and welcome to the DNC Media Propaganda Hour, kids! Join the DNC Media for all of the (lefty) opinions that Americans need to hear as we survey the wreckage invited by the foreign policy stylings of O’Bozo – the Clown President.

This week, the Pali-symps and high school Greenies in the most incompetent administration since Jimmy Carter bring us renewed warfare in the Gaza Ghetto, laughter from the Islamo-Nazi ISIS punks, isolation from our various disaffected allies, and another crushing reminder from Russia (“hey…don’t forget about us!”) that O’Bozo and his press office – the DNC Media – are know-nothing dopes and we should have elected Mitt Romney.

Let’s have a gander:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• John Kerry – Kook Left Liberal
• Lindsey Graham – RINO/Liberal
• Moderator – Immoderate Liberal

NBC strong!

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• Kerry – Kook Left Liberal
• Peter King – Clownish RINO
• Martin Indyk – Australian Jewish Liberal (?!)
• Moderator – Immoderate Liberal

Bing – two shows … no conservatives, with John Effing Sandinista Kerry 2-for-2.

“This Week” on ABC
• Kerry – Kook Left Liberal
• Mike Rogers – RINO
• Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer – NA
• Ambassador Maen Areikat – PLO delegation to the U.S. – NA
• Moderator – Immoderate Liberal

In addition to the same-old same-old, we get wind-surfer Kerry on a 3-for-3 and the warring parties from the Holy Land squaring off. Closest thing to a conservative is RINO Magic Mike, who can’t wait to get behind the Golden Microphone for realz.

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Kerry – Kook Left Liberal
• Ted Cruz – Conservative (BING!)
• Robert Menendez – Kook Left Liberal
• Bob Corker — RINO
• Moderator – Moderate

Same dead faces over and over. Hairdo goes 4-for-4 on his Big Day.

“State of the Union” on CNN

• Kerry – Kook Left Liberal (Ginsburg!)
• Dianne Feinstein – Liberal
• Mike McCaul – Conservative (The Daily Double!)
• Philip Breedlove – NA
• Moderator – Immoderate Liberal

Kerry gets the Full Ginsburg, for what it’s worth. Fifth show of the day … second conservative. If there really is a war between the RINOs and Conservatives, then newsmedia has made their choice clear.

“Political Capital” on Bloomberg TV
• Chuck Hagel – Liberal Dope
• Moderator – Immoderate (Clownish) Liberal

The combined intellectual firepower of Hunt and Hagel couldn’t run a decent junior college student newspaper.

“Newsmakers” on C-SPAN
• Rob Woodall – Conservative

Hey! And no John Effing Kerry…

“Al Punto” on Racist TV – Univision
• Henry Cuellar – Liberal
• Luis Gutiérrez – Liberal
• Moderator – Immoderate Liberal

This one would almost be fun just to watch Greasy Louie melt down over Cuellar’s comments on the border invasion. Three Mexican liberals … there’s some great political theater for Americans!

So, a crappier day than normal for conservative opinion, and even worse we get the same tired, stupid, camera-posing douchebags from both parties – Kerry, King, Corker, Graham, Feinstein, Rogers, McCaul, and now Cuellar and Guttierez, blah, blah, blah.

No thanks. Think I’ll dig up some old drain tile or something.

“This is the turning point. The lines are drawn now. We know who our friends are; we know who our adversaries are. Now we’re going to take it back.”

– Chris McDaniel (R), quoted by the Jackson Clarion Ledger, on challenging the results of the GOP Senate runoff that he lost.

Chris McDaniel (R) that other Republicans used “race-baiting” to hurt him in a U.S. Senate primary, and the GOP needs to be “purged” of people who use racially inflammatory campaign techniques against members of their own party, the Jackson Clarion Ledger reports.

Said McDaniel: “They hired Democratic operatives to go out into Democratic communities and call me a racist. That’s despicable. It’s the scarlet letter that they know works in society. It’s the way Democrats campaign. It’s the way liberals campaign.”

He added: “It goes to show that there are elements within our own party that have to be purged. There are elements within our own party that have no business being Republicans. Republicans should not behave in that fashion.
