White House Christmas Tree Ornaments

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!

What would you expect to be hanging from the WH Christmas tree?

Well, if it is an Obama tree this is what you will find:

A Chairman Mao Ornament

Why not a Hitler ornament Mr. President? Oh, you do not want to offend your Jewish base. Just slip in a Chinese communist that murdered more people than Adolf did and the Americans will continue to sing your praises, how joyful.

I know your Church taught hate, oh right that was hate for America not for tyrannical communists. Many Freedom loving people can embrace the imagery of Mao hanging from a tree BUT not as a place of honor adorning the White House Christmas tree.

Perhaps the inclusion of Chairman Mao was for your commie-loving friends such as the former Red Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones and the former WH Communications Director, Anita Dunn and her husband, which is your current WH Counsel Robert Bauer. Yes, we know Mr. Baer also served as former counsel to Osama Bin Laden's bodyguard & chauffer.

You can read about those aforementioned WH stars here, here, here, and here.

Ah, the company you keep Mr. President; it is indeed fitting that Chairman Mao is a part of your tree.

The Transvestite Ornament

second image is of autograph

Well the ornament isn't a transvestite...not that there is anything wrong with that...

The O tree has hanging from its branch an autographed ball emblazoned with the image of Hedda Lettuce. For those of you not in the know, Mr. Lettuce is actually Steven Polito and a self-proclaimed gay man and drag queen.

Why pray tell does he/she deserve such an honor to be featured on the WH tree?

Don't know, but the imagery is let's just say bi-curious. Mr. Lettuce in his world of make believe dresses up as a woman and Obama dresses up as a patriotic commander-in-chief.

Don't nuances and juxtapositions make you all giggly inside?

I'm sure Hedda can regale us with stories of star-struck men with a Chris Matthews like adoration that were thrilled to be in his company. I'm sure they also arrived with a willful blindness to the truth of his makeup.

...huh, wha!? You mean to tell me...but I didn't know...

Move along folks, nothing to see here, nothing to see, ignore the lump in the throat.

The Obama Mt Rushmore Ornament

The White House Christmas tree will not be complete without The One himself super-imposed onto an image of a Mt. Rushmore ornament. In a Bizarro world terms such as 'unbelievable' no longer fits.

Unlike 52% of the American voters, there is a group of proud 48-percenters that were not fooled by Obama's beard.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green red delight us.
They're green red when summer days are bright;
They're green red when winter snow is white.
O, Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green red delight us!

Trial Date Set for Navy SEALs

AP.March 31, 2004: Iraqis chant anti-American slogans as the
charred and mutilated bodies of U.S. contractors hang from a
bridge over the Euphrates River in Fallujah, Iraq.

The Navy SEALs facing court martial for allegedly punching a terror suspect captured for killing four Americans face up to a year in military confinement and forfeiture of pay.

The three SEAls facing charges are, Matthew McCabe, Jonathon Keefe, and Julio Huertas. Matthew McCabe is charged with assault for allegedly punching the terrorist in the stomach.

The judge, Capt. Moira Modzelewski, set McCabe’s trial for Jan. 19, 2010. Huertas is charged with impeding an investigation, dereliction of duty and making a false official statement. The same judge set Huertas’ trial date for Jan. 11, 2010. Keefe is charged with dereliction of duty and making a false official statement, no trial date announced.

The three SEALs would face the same maximum penalty even though the charges against each one deviate slightly. The military first sought non-judicial punishment, called a “captain’s mast.”

McCabe’s attorney Neal Puckett said, “That would have meant that some commander had predetermined their guilt and would have punished them in a way that would have ended their careers. They weren't willing to accept that and felt that it would not be a fair hearing.”

In NYC if you belly punched your neighbor in the manner in which the Navy SEAL allegedly did to the terrorist you would not face these charges. The NYPD would not arrest you if they did not witness the incident. It would be considered a mere violation for the lack of injury and a report would have been filed.

The charges against the SEALs are clearly an over reaction and a glaring example of how political correctness is undermining our national security.

We are appeasing the terrorist, the Muslim nations and the American Left. The powers that be addressed the recent Fort Hood terrorist with the same cowardice and PC gloves that allowed terror and jihad to thrive. Have we not learned anything?

We are a nation hell bent on not rankling the sensitivities of the American left and Muslim nations to the point where we are throwing the baby out with the bath water. When is enough enough?

Let us not forget the real victims and their families in this case. The SEALs captured Ahmed Hashim Abed, he is responsible for the murders of four Blackwater USA security guards, one of whom was a former Navy SEAL, in Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004.

The four victims were killed with hand grenades and rifles. Their bodies were set on fire and dragged through the streets. The bodies of two of them were hung from a bridge in Fallujah, an image that was broadcast around the world.

In 2000, police in Manchester, England, discovered an al-Qaeda manual while searching computer files found in the home of a known al-Qaeda member. The manual is known as the "Manchester document." The contents were introduced as evidence in the 2001 trial of terrorists who bombed the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998.

The closing chapter of the manual teaches al-Qaeda operatives how to operate in a prison or detention center. It directs detainees to "insist on proving that torture was inflicted" and to "complain of mistreatment while in prison."

Ahmed Hashim Abed took a page from this handbook by complaining of mistreatment while in prison. We responded with weakness and appeasement.

Our response reinforces the terrorists' training and emboldens them. It also hijacks justice by charging our defenders of Freedom and hampers our defense by discouraging future and existing American heroes. Would you want the thankless job of protecting us?

Donna Zovka, the mother of one of the Blackwater victims said she felt some closure at the capture of the man responsible for the murder of her 32-year-old son Jerry Zovka. She rallied to show support for the SEALs.

“I am very grateful to these three Navy SEALs,” Donna Zovka told “I am hopeful for them. In my heart of hearts, I know they will overcome this and win.”

Human Events has an electronic petition to Free the SEALs. You can click here to sign it. If the server times out or you're not comfortable doing this online, you can always print-out the one page petition and snail mail it in.

Col. Van T. Barfoot, 90, Wins Battle Against Virginia HOA to Fly the Flag

Medal of Honor Recipient Victorious in Battle Against Homeowners Association

AP Photo/Richmond Times-Dispatch, Eva Russo
Nov. 2: Col. Van T. Barfoot, 90, and his daughter Margaret Nicholls
lower the flag outside Barfoot's home in Henrico County, Va.

On Tuesday, December 01, the Sussex Square homeowners association (HOA) in Virginia threatened legal action against 90-year old Van T. Barfoot if he did not take down his flagpole from his yard by 5 p.m. Friday.

Barfoot noted that there is no provision in Sussex Square's rules that forbids erecting flagpoles. For the Barfoot family flying the American Flag is a cause worth fighting for.

Van T. Barfoot is a retired Army Colonel that bravely defended our Freedoms in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Col Barfoot is a recipient of the Medal of Honor and Purple Heart.

Col. Barfoot, while fighting during WWII in Carano, Italy, single-handedly destroyed a set of German machine gun nests, killed eight enemy soldiers, took 17 prisoners and stared down a tank before destroying it and killing its crew AND managed to move two of his wounded men 1,700 yards to safety. Col. Van T. Barfoot did all this in a single day!

The Sussex Square HOA refused to make an exception for this man.

Folks, this is an American story and should transcend partisan politics. Patriotism is not owned by any given Party. I have no idea how Col. Barfoot votes and quite frankly, I do not care. I do know that Barfoot is an American hero and an honored Defender of Freedom that deserves our respect and gratitude. Democratic Senators Warner and Webb agreed and championed the cause.

Veterans' groups rallied resulting in national media attention. Obama's spokesman called the HOA request "silly." For an excellent retelling of the colonel's heroics check out Mark Levin's commentary:

On December 08, it was reported that the Sussex Square HOA agreed to stop their legal action against Van T. Barfoot. The retired Army Colonel is now free to fly the Flag in his front yard.

This is reminiscent of the management of the Oaks Apartments in Oregon ordering the residents to stop displaying the American Flag on their apartments and/or vehicles, more on that here.

Col Van T. Barfoot at 90-years old is one of the oldest living World War II veterans who received the Medal of Honor; Barfoot is not alone in that distinction.

Please meet John William Finn who at 100-years old is our nation's oldest living Medal of Honor recipient and also the only living Pearl-Harbor-Day Medal of Honor recipient.
