President Obama's new pals?  The taliban.

This is not a joke blog, this is for real.

Read the following excerpts from this Investors Business Daily editorial.  You will not believe your eyes:

War On Terror: As the Taliban assassinate U.S. military officers and poison troop chow in Afghanistan, the president secretly plans the release of Taliban prisoners from Gitmo.

Whose side is this commander in chief on? Just days before members of the Taliban took credit for infiltrating the Afghan Interior Ministry and murdering two American officers, the Obama administration was finalizing a secret deal with the terror group.

"If all goes as hoped," reported Reuters, "U.S. and Qatari negotiators will meet soon to nail down final details for transferring Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo prison a momentous step for President Obama, the Afghan war and perhaps U.S. foreign policy as well."

The deal reportedly includes a political office for the Taliban in Qatar and possible power-sharing for the banned terrorist group in Kabul. What does the U.S. get out of the deal? More treachery and bloodshed.

The administration thinks the sooner it stands up an Afghan army and national police, the sooner it can pull out troops. Obama has announced a formal 2014 withdrawal. But by telegraphing his plans, everybody in Afghanistan knows we're leaving.

And now there's no reason for a local Afghan Muslim not to side with the Taliban, either openly or secretly, especially in light of reports the administration is in political talks with the Taliban.

Afghans working for the army or police have good reason to fear the Taliban will soon be back in power. If they don't want to end up buried in a soccer field, they'll throw in with the Taliban and help them kill as many American "infidels" from the inside as they can.

The enemy must be doubled over with laughter at the stupidity of this administration.

President Obama is making friends and doing favors for the most intolerant, hate-filled, murderous, anti-Western people on the planet?  With the people who are in a constant effort to kill USA citizens, military or civilian, and dance in the streets when they succeed?

You could not make this Obama-In-Wonderland scenario up if you tried.

And as our wonderful "neutral" media fall all over themselves telling us how off the rails Mitt Romney and/or Rick Santorum are,  Barack Obama's stupidity - yes IBD has that word dead right - regarding the taliban goes virtually unreported.

I don't know what I feel more:  Incedulity regarding this President's ludicrous, destructive actions, resentment over mainstream media's virtually limitless capacity to protect him, or despair for the future of this country.

Here, as a public service, is the latest Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) email, just sent out.  This one has John Kerry's name on it. 

The email wording, is in rust.  And my comments (did you think I wouldn't have comments???) are in blue.  See which you think make more sense:



Remember Rick Santorum's big bucks backer who got nostalgic saying women used to hold an aspirin between their knees for birth control?'re lying already.  It was not a nostalgic comment, it was a joke.  And you of course, know this full well.

Foster Friess isnt just incredibly clueless or the owner of an awful sense of humor. Hes also taking out his checkbook to spend mounds of cash to paint the Senate red, and hes not alone. 
Well, I agree Freisss humor" was awful in this instance, and hes seems willing to contribute a lot to Rick Santorum.  So you did reasonably well here.  Congratulations:  it is the high point of your email.

Karl Rove is spending $120 million. Friess plans to target 10 states. Flip four, and Republicans take charge. We wouldn't have a firewall to stop their dangerous agenda. Finding an aspirin would be the least of our worries. 
This aspirin thing seems very important to you, since thats the second time you referenced it.  Again, it was nothing other than a joke to Freiss.  And it wouldnt be a Democrat email without a reference to the Karl Rove all-purpose bogeyman scare.  As far as targeting states, isnt that exactly what Democrats are doing too?  How do you run a series of state campaigns without targeting a series of states?

I know what its like to fight a tide of outside cash, and thats why Im asking for your immediate help.
BS and double BS.  You grew up rich, married even richer, and then divorced your wife to marry even richer than that.  You could personally finance your senate campaigns, never take a penny from anyone, and be rich at the end anyway.  The DSCCs crucial FEC deadline is 48 hours away, and they still need $300,000. Fall short, and say hello to the Aspirin Agenda. Aspirin agenda?  This is going from obsessive to pathological.  Hit this goal, and we can hold accountable the extremes of the far-right fringe.  If $300,000 is all it takes, just tell wife Teresa to write a check, like she does to pay for all those homes you and she live in, the ones that the regular people you are trolling for contributions from will never get a sniff of in their lives.  Then you can go off on your yacht - the one you docked in Rhode Island instead of Massachusetts to save taxes on the backs of your constituents - and forget the whole thing.

Click here to give $25 or more to the DSCC. We can re-elect President Obama and our Democratic Senate, but only if we raise $300,000 in the next 48 hours! 
Wow.  Without $300,000, the election is over on Wednesday.  Who knew?

Thanks to the Citizens United ruling, Foster Friess, Karl Rove and other top Republicans can spend freely in support of candidates.
As can and do rich Democrats.  Im sure you left that out by mistake.  American Crossroads and our Republican Senate counterparts are both running attack ads right now.  Unlike this email, the numerous other similarly attack-oriented emails we have seen and the ones run by your left wing network of outside groups?  Are you seriously trying to suggest that Democrats are not running attack ads, just like Republicans?  It is amazing how stupid you think the people on your email list are.

And we know what these Republicans want. A nation where its hard to get preventative care, but easy to lose your health coverage. Where we put the rights of big polluters above the rights of women.  
As we know?  But I don't know.  So do you have any specifics on this?  Just a quick note before you answer:  if the reference is supposed to be to ObamaCare, please keep in mind that most citizens join Republicans in not wanting it. 

The Republicans have Foster Friess. But we have something far more powerful half a million passionate people who wont rest until we move this nation forward. More than 90% of gifts to the DSCC come from grassroots donors. 
And how much of the money george soros, the Sub-prime Sandlers, Steven Spielberg, bill maher, etc. etc. etc. give comes from grassroots donors?  You must be watering those roots with champagne.  Lots of it.

The DSCC needs those grassroots donors now! Click here to give $25 or more. We can keep the White House and Senate blue, but only if we raise $300,000 in the next 48 hours! 
Again with this two day time limit?  Give the money fast, dont think, just do it?  Geez, Senator, what do you think this is?  Your vote on the stimulus package?

Giving to the DSCC just might be the single best way to put Foster Friess and every other retrograde Republican - in their place. 
In their place?  Uh..where would that be?  Please give now.

Sen. John Kerry
