My Christmas Gift to Bill Maher (and Other Professional Left Sheeple)

Happy Festivus, Bill ... I know you're back in a few weeks and you'll be in Hawaii soon. Stalking the President, are you? Well, here's something of which those of us pragmatics would like to remind you ... it's a whopping big L-I-E you told this past autumn, and the extent of that lie should mean you have a burning probiscus in the middle of your face.

I'll let the divine Bob Cesca inform you. It's about the recent NDAA Bill he signed, with a special statement. I know you'll expound about this in January, using the usual Professional Left talking points, without ever bothering to read the legislation or to understand it. I just want you to understand THIS:-

A provision contained within the bill that put a tear in John Boehner’s beer this week, the bill which includes a 2 month extension of payroll tax-cuts and unemployment benefits, is a provision that specifically prohibits the closure of the prison at Guantanamo Bay, and President Obama has issued a statement reiterating his opposition to this provision.

In this bill, the Congress has once again included provisions that would bar the use of appropriated funds for transfers of Guantanamo detainees into the United States (section 8119 of Division A), as well as transfers to the custody or effective control of foreign countries unless specified conditions are met (section 8120 of Division A). These provisions are similar to others found in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. My Administration has repeatedly communicated my objections to these provisions, including my view that they could, under certain circumstances, violate constitutional separation of powers principles. In approving this bill, I reiterate the objections my Administration has raised regarding these provisions, my intent to interpret and apply them in a manner that avoids constitutional conflicts, and the promise that my Administration will continue to work towards their repeal.

To recap:

- President Obama signed an executive order on the day he took office in 2009 to close Guantanamo Bay

- This is the fourth time since 2009 that Congress has voted to block the closure of Guantanamo Bay

- Congress has voted overwhelmingly, in a bipartisan fashion, each of those four times to block the closure of Guantanamo Bay

The good news is, there is one provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that grants the president the discretion to hold civilian trials for detainees. And while some would argue that it shouldn’t be a matter of discretion, I would point out that having the discretion is better than having no choice other than military trials, which is what we have right now.

Got that, Bill? Obama never lied about his intention to close Guantanmo Bay. His Executive Order was overridden by Congress - bipartisanly. Even Saint Bernie Sanders, a regular puppet guest on your panel doesn't want Gitmo closed. And now they've shafted closure as fourth time.

I would hope you had integrity enough as an educated man to address this and to admit publically that you were wrong; but since that would mean you would look too much like a pussy, I doubt you will. Still, it's nice to know that Goebbels's Big Lie propaganda against which both your parents fought in the Second World War is alive and well and enjoying a new lease on life it's taken in the depths of your soul. You and your buddies in the Professional Left follow the Big Lie propaganda motif so well.

Your parents must be proud you turned out so well and that their fight against Big Lie propaganda was not in vein.

I'd like to take that latest bill and stick it up your scrawny ass.

Merry Christmas now. Y'all.


  1. As my Southern daddy would have said, you sure got him told! Mr. Maher, that is.

  2. It was people like Maher and others on the PL that gave this lie its legs. They also made it possible for many on the right to call PBO a liar and claim that he failed to fulfill his campaign promise to close Gitmo. With "associates" like these on the left, the rest of us who know why Gitmo is still open, don't need enemies on the right to attack PBO for something that is not his fault. Tweeted, and I hope that Maher and those who still believe this nonsense see this, visit your site, and stop making fools of themselves.
