ELDER PATRIOT –  The Seattle Times is asking if Starbucks C.E.O. Howard Schultz will be throwing his hat into the ring as a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination?  It’s a terrific idea.  Anyone whose ever spent any time in one of Mr. Schultz’s coffeehouses knows that he won’t have to look anywhere but there for people with all of the answers to our political problems.  The polite society in Washington may require them to shower and get haircuts on occasion, though.


Yahoo News reports that Obama has admitted that Iran is free to use the cash that will come as a result of lifting the sanctions to fund terrorism.  But, hey, that’s the trade-off to ensure Iran develops nuclear weapons capability.  Wait, what do we get?

We get what we deserve for electing Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry in the first place. Hat tip to the liberal ignoramuses that voted for them in Illinois and Massachusetts.

Obama and Kerry are latter day Neville Chamberlains.  Compare these two to Ronald Reagan who stared down the Soviet Bear in Reykjavik and tore down the Berlin Wall.


The good folks at Breitbart News tell us that in an interview with the Atlantic our intrepid Secretary of State warns us not to reject the deal that he negotiated or the “moderate” regime [sic] of Hassan Rouhani would fall if the deal were rejected, and be replaced by a more hard-line one,” because Iran would not be able to trust the United States any longer.  Really?  Wow, I guess you can’t tell who the really hard-line regimes are without a scorecard!

Kerry avoided answering many questions and went so far as to flat-out lie about how this would affect Israel stating that the deal “is as pro-Israel, as pro-Israel’s security, as it gets.”  Sure, that’s why John Kennedy didn’t care when Castro had Soviet Nukes placed on Cuba.

Kerry dismissed Iran’s call for “death to Israel” as an ideological difference between the two countries.

Following this interview only two questions remain unanswered, how can Israel trust the United States any longer, and how unsafe can Kerry and Obama cause to the United States and her allies to become over the next year and a half?


Salon contributor Dr. Brittney Cooper calls herself the “next generation black intellectual.”  This is code for a highly developed ability to twist words and thoughts in order to justify continued racial tensions that are so important to maintaining progressives’ constituencies.  Blacks must feel deprived and whites must be shamed for progressives to be successful.

Cooper is an assistant professor of women’s and gender studies and Africana studies at Rutgers University.  “Intellectuals” like Cooper, who have never spent a second outside of academia have no credibility when passing observations on things they have no knowledge about.

To be perfectly blunt, the presence of “intellectuals” such as Ms. Cooper on the once esteemed Rutgers faculty is one of the reasons I no longer donate to my alma mater.

__________ recounts Obama’s Q & A with young African leaders this past Monday.

A woman asked the president, “Persons with albinism in Africa are being killed and their body parts harvested for ritual purposes. My request to you is to raise this issue with heads of state of African countries to bring these atrocities to an end.”

His answer warned of dehumanizing marginal groups of humans and of the problems that arise when “you are not able to see someone else as a human being.”

On the home front Obama continues to vehemently support Planned Parenthood despite recent revelations of their harvesting of babies body parts for compensation.

To Obama all human life is sacred…unless he says it’s not.


CBS Denver has a report that the FBI is concerned about Middle Eastern men trying to intimidate U.S. military families in Colorado and Wyoming.

Here’s my advice to the good people of Greeley and Cheyenne where this is taking place.  It’s time to protect your own.  These fine families need your help.  They are selfless in our defense now we must be in theirs.  The Second Amendment guarantees your right to a well-regulated militia.  Join one or form one ASAP and let these interlopers know we won’t roll over like Europeans do.

Netanyahu warned us this would be the result of Progressive policies.  Treating a war like a civil disturbance is a fool’s play.
