Anchors Away Comrades

A Fitting Tribute? To Who? The Russian Fleet...

Capture this image on the last night of the Democratic National Convention. They are going to say thank you to our veterans. Being a veteran myself I can appreciate the gesture. Now bear in mind that the Democrats wanted to showcase the fact this nation's veterans are in their camp. Not many are but they were able to conjure up a retired admiral by the name of John Natham to lead the charge.

It was truly impressive with the admiral himself surrounded on the stage by about a dozen veterans of the Iraq and Afghanastan conflicts. It was truly an impressive display and there was a picture of the fleet displayed on the screen behind the assembled proud veterans who had defended this nation and the liberties we all enjoy. But there was just one minor problem with the image that was being projected on the screen behind these patriots. Take a look:

Whoops! Wrong Fleet!!!

It was truly an impressive a display of the naval might of the Russian fleet as you might ever see. Those are not US Navy ships. Those images were of the Russian fleet on maneuvers in the Black Sea. The Navy Times reported that not only are the ships quite obviously outfitted with Russian radar but they were also flying the Russian flag. I'm wondering if this faux paux is part of Obama's promise to Putin that after his reelection he will "have more flexibility."

The other interesting part of the whole scene was that it showed the ships being overflown by what, in all appearances, are U.S. trainer jets. How did that happen? It didn't because it was a composite. It did look patriotic though didn't it? It made all the comrades in the homeland proud to be - a Russian!

The head scratcher is both how and why the Democratic Party put such a farce together and then showed it at their convention led by a retired US Navy Admiral who didn't catch it either. When a spokesperson for the Democratic National Convention Committee was asked for a comment they ran for cover and remained mute other than to tell the reporter he had to find out what happened.

Well Comrade Democrats you pulled off a less than fitting tribute to the warriors who guard your rights and liberties. You know those freedoms that Obama has been chipping away at for the past 4 years? Comrade Putin is sure to be sitting back and smiling just waiting for that flexibility that Obama promised him. Actually maybe licking his chops.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

This was no accident, just like taking God and Jerusalem out of the platform, having a DNC head who lies about lying, people are running the party behind the scenes, like who wrote the health care law, like the president's appointed Czars, the party, and because they are in control, the country is not being run by the people we elect but really a shadow government of individuals who could never be elected to anything if they were to run because of their radical beliefs and agenda. These people despise what America stands for and want to bring us down and relish in anything they can put over on the American public, even their own party because the party means nothing to them except a means to an end - it is no longer your father's democrat party.

On the other hand the Dems are so incompetent they might have hired Beavis and Butt-head to create the tribute to veterans - either way we're sunk if they retain power."FOUR WARDS" (VOTE THE BUMS OUT) BTW that's an original thought Tsad -1 Josak - 0

Well Obama did tell Putin to wait until he was re-elected and he could do what he wanted (paraphrasing here - but says the same). Of All things that are happening right now - not a surprise.

Did anybody else ever hear of a Czar who wasn't a Russian prior to Obama?

BPOP - Sorry friend. The problem is that it wasn't a fairy tale. And here they had a full admiral from the US Navy who failed to catch it! Hilarious!!!

Not a surprise Frog!...any admiral who sides with the demoncrap party is missing a lot of things....

like his marbles. btw I meant "Four Words" not "Four Wards" in above comment. (another thing I have in common with the messiah ...at least that is not as bad as "57 states")

tsad - Look on the bright side! Jobless claims are up again this week. We have a failed POTUS out on the campaign trail all the time "talking" about creating jobs. Of course, he's been talking for four years now. What happened to the "walk?"

Well at least he is doing a good job on the foreign policy front!....the last time our embassy people were killed was 1979? Wasn't that Jimmy Carter's term? Yeah, they need to hear more from him 'cause that was such a great administration. What does Obama call his foreign policy "Leading from the behind?" (Now that would make a good hub page)

The only thing missing was the Mao orb that hung from the WH Christmas tree in 2009. You are correct that picture had to have been Photoshopped, as US trainer jets would never get that close to a Russian naval flotilla. Just another "oops moment" for the DNC.

Perhaps the Chessmaster is in Charge, whoever he may be. Perhaps Obama used to be a pawn, but with a lot of pushing he reached that last rank and got promoted. Now he's the most powerful piece on the board.

The Russians are still the best at chess.

Sir Frog, thank you. I just now heard of this. Too busy with work. I have to agree with tsadjakco. I think they knew exactly what they put together. Further, I have no doubt in my mind they also knew those in the audience would not catch it. It's totally telling of what his majesty thinks of those who are so loyal to him and their intelligence levels. Yet, they still happily follow along behind the Pied Piper leading the nation straight to hell.

I guess Obama didn't think that pictures of our own military were inspiring enough for the Democrats s0 they have to resort to the Russian navy. That makes sense, we all knew the Democrats were communists at heart.

In case you missed it...despite the fact that the world mic got it...President Obama, um...well...sorta, kinda...slipped a message to Rootin Tootin Putin through his lap dog Medvedev.

Obama: "On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space.”

Medvedev: "Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…"

Obama: "This is my last election...After my election, I have more flexibility."

Medvedev: "I understand. I transmit this information to Vladimir."

Makes me wonder if Putin didn't say to Medvedev, "Tell Obama we have little initiation for him if he wants us to wait - put our ships in a tribute to your veterans to show us we can trust you."

Oh no, now I'm seeing Obama as the Manchurian Candidate but instead of the Queen of Diamonds, he's activated by the code word "Forward"!!!

In Russian Forward would be продвигаться. Better learn it now.

It's so weird that Obama ignores our traditional allies and makes friends with the one european country that traditionally holds views so antithetical to our own.

Not so weird when you look at his childhood influences like his mother Ann Dunham who was an extreme far leftist with a sweet tooth for Communist philosophy, and an utter disdain for religion. Barack Obama Sr. regarded himself an atheist before ever meeting Ann Dunham in Hawaii. He had 3 other wives and seven other children aside from Ann and Barack Jr. He didn't tell her he was still married to a woman in Kenya when they married in Hawaii in 1961. 2 years prior, he wrote an article in Kenya called "The Problems Facing Our Socialism", which one could argue exhibit a certain degree of Communism, if not far left leanings. Stanley Dunham (MATERNAL GRANDFATHER) with whom he lived much of his childhood in Hawaii, was also a Communist sympathizer. After the family moved to Hawaii, Stanley befriended one Frank Marshall Davis, known Communist, anti-Christian poet. A friendship developed between the two which eventually led to Davis being introduced to the young Barack Obama. Obama later writes in 'Dreams from my Father' about a man named "Frank" (he never mentioned his last name) who would come to the house, read poetry, drink whiskey, and smoke marijuana with Stanley Dunham. Barack would often sit in and listen and Obama describes him as a "mentor", and one he could always look to for answers..Davis, the mentor of the young Barack Obama, was a staunch Communist, hater of Christians, drug dealer, and a complete pervert. This is what we know! Just recently information has been discovered of a man/woman who cared for Barack Obama during is early childhood in Indonesia. Between the ages of 6 and 10, Barack Obama was put in the care of "Evie", a transgender, who was born a man and is now a "woman".

I had no idea that Obama's history was so non-mainstream and that his exposure to communism was so much and at an early age. No wonder he doesn't have any empathy for the traditional American values, he was brought up to suspect them and to look at America as an enemy.

Yes, If Obama had applied to become an FBI agent he would never have passed the vetting because of his history and associations and yet he now runs the country....the irony of the whole Obama situation, past present and future is overwelming! A muslim (as a youth) and friend of terrorists (Ayers) fighting terrorism, the son of atheists claims to be a Christian, brought up a communist and now leader of the free world (even if he is leading from the behind). It's enough to drive one insane.
