1. Al Qaeda Says Barack Obama Doesn’t Know What He is Talking About

According to Barack Obama, Al Qaeda keeps attacking us and recruiting new terrorists because GTMO exists.

Unfortunately for Obama, Al Qaeda says the recent attack on the CIA was actually because of our drones.

If we follow Obama’s logic that the existence of GTMO causes terror attacks, we must conclude that Obama will now shut down the remote drone program.

Of course it is frightening to follow Obama’s logic.

According to him, GTMO is used as a recruiting tool in the Arabian world. Al Qaeda recruits terrorists who want to come to America to kill us because their brethren are in GTMO.

Do not … REPEAT … do not ask Barack Obama how moving the GTMO prisoners to a prison on domestic soil will somehow cause Al Qaeda to say, “Yo, we’re cool now.” In fact, if GTMO causes Al Qaeda to want to come to America to kill Americans, how much more so will a prison in Illinois incite them to come here and not only kill us but also free their brethren.

This guy is an amateur.

2. Government’s case weakening against the U.S. Navy SEALs?

We’ve been repeatedly noting, there is an effort afoot to bring the public’s attention to the plight of three U.S. Navy SEALs (Julio Huertas, Jonathan Keefe and Matthew McCabe) who, as part of SEAL Team 10, have been brought up on charges that one of the most-wanted terrorists in Iraq, Ahmed Hashim Abed, received a boo-boo during a raid in September.

In early December the trio plead not guilty to charges of dereliction of duty and making false official statements. One would expect the government, having already brought charges, to be prepared to move forward to trial, originally set for two of them a fortnight from now.

Well, if you thought that, you’d be wrong.

3. OK…*Someone* Is Lying To Us About Terrorists

CBS News is reporting that the White House claims there was “No Xmas Day In-Flight Warning” and, further, that they refute the claims of an LA Times piece that suggested “border enforcement officials found information in a database suggesting the alleged terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had extremist ties.”

4. Nelson: Everyone Will get the Cornhusker Kickback

Senator Ben Nelson (D-DeadMeat) continues to try to distance himself from his Obamacare bribe and his vote for the bill.

5. Bob Bennett: An Old Dog With an Old Schtick

I keep saying that conservatives need to take Bob Bennett out at the Utah Republican Convention. It would be relatively low cost. The odds are the GOP would keep the seat. Any of the candidates from Cheryl Eager to Mike Lee would push the seat right.

Bob Bennett is the 8th most liberal Republican in the Senate from the most conservative state in the nation.

He can and must be beaten. If he fails to get 60% in the Utah GOP Convention, he will be forced into a primary. If someone else gets 60%, that person automatically becomes the nominee.

I don’t want to pick between the candidates – I’m partial to Eager and Lee – but if the candidates start going after each other, I will weigh in. This is about taking out Bob Bennett. The candidates need to focus on him.

Here is another reason why. I’ve told you all along that Bennett was working behind the scenes to undermine the GOP effort on health care obstruction. The Heritage Foundation considers Bennett’s health care proposal worse than what Barack Obama proposed.

A lot of you did not believe me or questioned it. Well, consider what he did in 1994 during the debate on Clinton’s healthcare plan.

6. My mistake

I’ve got to issue a bit of an apology to Stephen Colbert. For once the lefties online are right about something.

In gearing up for the Colbert Report, I spoke several times to Stephen’s staff. We went over the topic areas to be discussed, played twenty minutes of question on the types of areas he’d pursue, and then in the green room Monday night kind of recapped.

My twittering never came up. So when defending my statement on Linda Douglass that she was the Joseph Goebbels of the White House, I told him she’d called anti-health care deform activists “brown shirts.” Actually, she didn’t. In trying to remember why I had called her that, I got her confused with Congressman Brian Baird, which happened about the same time as all the other stuff. Sorry for getting her confused with Brian Baird, or rather I guess I should apologize to Brian Baird for getting him confused with a hack like Douglass.

I actually called Douglass that related to her demand for people to turn in their neighbors by forwarding in their emails with supposedly lies and mistruths about health care.
