Nope, it takes hard work to attain such distinctions.
And, two of ‘em, just months apart!
I stand in awe, Mr. President, Sir.
Via Israel National News: Iran Calls Obama Military Option ‘Joke of the Year’
Iran has mocked US President Barack Obama’s warnings that the military option is still on the table to prevent the Islamic regime’s nuclear aspirations, calling the threats “the joke of the year.”
General Saeed Masoud Jazzayeri…laughed at Obama’s recent warnings of possible American military intervention in the Middle East.
“The low-IQ US president and his country’s Secretary of State John Kerry speak of the effectiveness of ‘the US options on the table’ on Iran, while this phrase is mocked at and has become a joke among the Iranian nation, especially the children,” said Jazzayeri according to the Iranian semi-official Fars News Agency….
Judge Jeanine Pirro, the Fox News angelic assassin, rips into Obama and his miserable, flailing foreign policy. Other than “lead from behind,” no one seems able to articulate what that policy is or has ever been. Sparing no one, she nails Barack Obama, John Kerry, and the pair she calls “Clueless Clapper” and “Hapless Hagel.”

Austin, Texas (CNN) — Even though he can’t set foot in the United States for fear of arrest, fugitive National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden has joined the speakers’ roster at this year’s South by Southwest Interactive Festival.
Snowden, who fled the United States in June with thousands of top-secret documents, will appear via teleconference Monday from Russia for a discussion about how the tech community must defend itself against mass surveillance.
Snowden will chat with Christopher Soghoian, principal technologist with the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech, Privacy and Technology Project.
“The conversation will be focused on the impact of the NSA’s spying efforts on the technology community and the ways in which technology can help to protect us from mass surveillance,” an SXSW news release says.
(News Max) – Convincing President Obama and his team that Russian leader Vladimir Putin is a member of the tea party may be the only way to goad Obama into taking action, radio talker Rush Limbaugh mused on Monday, Breitbart reports.
“If they can somehow find a way to convince Obama that Putin is tea party, then he might toughen up a little,” Limbaugh told millions of listeners. “But I mean how do you sic the IRS on Putin? Obama’s tools for this are limited.”
Limbaugh unleashed a torrent of criticism on the commander in chief, ridiculing the administration’s anemic foreign policy as hapless and weak and reminding that many leaders, himself included, foreshadowed Putin’s true intentions.

Barack “Cupcake” Obama and another of his “pink lines.”

Friday, February 28, 2014, per Fox News: Barack “Cupcake” Obama, is warning Russia about military intervention into Ukraine. If it weren’t so serious, it would be funny. Russia has a vested interest in Ukraine, and it would be on par with the US enforcing the Monroe Doctrine in our part of the globe. Another “pink line” drawn by the Glass Jaw Dictator and, something tells me, that if, Obama really gets stupid and there is war inside of America, the Patriots just found their backing.
Putin hunts tigers, while Obama, was treated once for a paper cut.

If you haven’t seen it yet, the below dashcam video of a New Jersey man being stopped, beaten, and otherwise abused by police — without any apparent justification or cause, as it turns out — is pretty disturbing to watch.
According to a New York Daily News article about the incident, Marcus Jeter, the man being arrested in the video, was pulled over by police who accused him of fleeing and attempting to take one of their firearms during a struggle. None of which was true.

Rubio’s responds to ignorance about communist regimes in brilliant floor speech; Venezuela is new Cuba – BizPac Review
The junior senator from Florida listened respectfully Monday, as U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, delivered a floor speech, much of it in praise of the “paradise” of Castro’s Cuba. When it was Republican Marco Rubio’s turn, he gave his colleague across the isle an education of the hell the Cuban dictator had made of the island nation.
“Let me tell you what the Cubans are really good at,” Rubio told the chamber. “What they are really good at is repression…They have exported repression in real time, in our hemisphere, right now.”
The Miami Herald reported:
For 14 minutes and 16 seconds, Rubio gave the best oration of his political career, speaking largely off the top of his head and with only the barest of notes. Rubio sometimes dripped with sarcasm or simmered with indignation as he made the case to Congress that the United States needs to continue Cuba sanctions and punish Venezuela.
After listing the numerous things Harkin and the rest of his delegation missed on their junket to Castro’s Cuba, Rubio addressed Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro regime.
A look at the behind the scenes legal battle with the EPA over the ‘social cost of carbon’ and looming carbon tax

While this submission to OMB from Attorney Menton may look forbiddingly legalistic document to many WUWT readers, a number of you may well have signed one or more of the Amicus Briefs and other materials cited in it.It is important to read this because it provides a window into the future of a potential carbon tax in the USA.
I consider it a “must read” for those of you who are very concerned about the EPA’s current and proposed CO2 –related regulations. EPA uses its Social Cost of Carbon estimates to justify all such regulations. And, these estimates are also being used as recommended starting points for future carbon taxes. Enough said as to why it makes sense to read and think about the submission?
