With Friends Like These.....

"They all came and ate my barbecue and then went and voted for the other feller..."

So quoth Marvin Griffin when my old frienf Carl Sanders defeated him in a long ago Georgia election.

Not unusual, altogether in the Peach State's electorate. Buit very rare in the chief magistrate of the Unioted States.

Our president made his first great foreign affairs faux pas when he gave Queen Elizabeth II a stack of stale CDs. Just a few days ago, he made an awkward blunder toasting her at Buckingham Palace where he and Michelle were her guests.

He was well fed and well boozed and cheered by all of the United Kingdon, even cooly by Prime Minister David Cameron a very successful Conservative. Our president was allegedly "cementing" the "special relationship" between the UK and the USA.

But now, we see this same president siding with...nay, VOTING with-- Marxist Brit-hater Hugo Chavez of Venezuela in the OAS against Cameronm and Her Magesty in the matter of the Falkland Islands. See The Telegraph story by Nile Gardiner HERE .

The UK owns the Falkland Islands which lie far off the eastern coast of Argentina. An invaion was mounted in the 1980's by the Argentines. Margaret Thatcher's government sent them home swiftly after a bloody few days.

Now, Argentina is marshalling all the little despots like Chavez to demand Britain capitulate and "discuss" the Falklands.

It's a slap in the face and a kick in the head for the US administration, headed byB.H.O and Hillary Clinton, to snuggle up to Chavez and the mischief makers in this farce.

But, it IS typical of the contrarian drift of the burrowing, steaming
Hate-America-Hate-Britain hyprocricy. BHO's first betrayal of this deep aversion was to trash and return a very valuable oval office bust of Sir Winstin Churchill in nasty gesture.

As any Fool can Plainly See, QEII and Cameron have no faithfil friend in this instance.

Does anyone, for that matter ?

It's MY Dead horse....

There are not many readers of this space who do not remember the Watergate hearings and the Tran-Contra drama on Capitol Hioll.

The consequence of the former was the resignation of a president. The latter brought about a slew of resignations and some serious reformation of loose-cannon diplomacy within the non-State Department executive "security" personnel.

Neither of these scandals were about U.S. government agents causing the death of other government agents.

But we have another blockbuster scandal on the near horizon about just such grisly stuff. It has been thickening for months. Now it is in full cry and fruition, with subpoenas flying and hearings beginning next Monday, June 13.

And the hearings, which will be lengthy, are happening for the same reason that the Watergate hearings were held...AND the Iran-Contra hearings were held:

Stonewalling. Obstruction of Justice.

Congressman Darrel Issa and Senator Chuck Grassley have been trying to find out whether guns and ammunition illegally introduced into Mexico by the ATF to trace drug cartels brought about the death of a U.S. Border patrol officer last winter.. AND if the same arms and ammo brought down an enforcement helicopter two wweeks ago. Such rifles have been traced from the killing. Now its down to bullets.

Issa has announced his Oversight committee will issue "many" supboenas in upcoming weeks and, maybe months. A great many "whistleblowers" and internal informants have reportedly been uncovered by Issa's investigators.

The reason I am sketching it in this space is because the alphabet television outles and the left wing suppressors of truth news are not likely to bring it to anyone's attention.

There are plenty of details from The Hill RIGHT HERE .

Thank God for Brian Lamb and C-Span, we might have a seat at the hearings. If not, return to this space. It;s my favorite deceased nag and I am not finished beating on it.
