Ryan says under Obama, Middle East looks like ‘1979 Tehran’

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.
Congressman Ryan is absolutely correct.  Obama’s handling of the Middle East chaos which he is largely credited with creating makes the Iranian Embassy Hostage Crisis pale by comparison.
Where in in the Middle East are U.S. assets not going up in flames, and the flag of al Qaeda flying instead of the stars and stripes.
Is Obama to impotent to do anything about it?  Why should he, it’s part of his plan.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Seizing the U.S. Embassy in Iran and the beginning of the U.S. Hostage Crisis

The Hill

By Daniel Strauss

Paul Ryan delivered a blistering speech against President Obama on foreign policy Monday, saying because of the president’s policies, the Middle East looks like Tehran during the mob protests on the U.S. embassy in 1979.

Ryan, speaking in Lima, Ohio, was referencing Nov. 4, 1979, when Islamic revolutionaries in Iran attacked the U.S. embassy and took more than 50 Americans hostage. Ryan said that Obama has failed to fulfill promises to bring peace to the Middle East.

“I mean, turn on the TV and it reminds you of 1979 Tehran but they’re burning our flags in capitals all around the world. They’re storming our embassies,” Ryan said.

Romney and Ryan have both strongly criticized Obama over foreign policy in the aftermath of attacks at U.S. diplomatic sites in Egypt and Libya that resulted in four U.S. officials dead in Benghazi, Libya. Ryan continued to criticize Obama in comparing the 2012 embassy attacks to the 1979 attack during his speech.

“We’ve lost four of our diplomats. And what is the signal that our government is sending the rest of the world? We’re being equivocal on our values, we’re being slow to speak up for individual rights, for human rights, for democracy. We’re seeing countries stifle freedom in Iran, in Russia, and all these other areas. And we’re saying we’re going to gut our military — that projects weakness.”

The article from the Blaze on Paul Ryan sounding like a DNC hit piece is accurate and is very positive toward Congressman Ryan

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

The original title of this article signaled to this journalist, they are buying mud by the truck load at the DNC Headquarters.

Ironically it depicted the congressman in a very favorable light, with now doubt about his black girlfriend during college, the issue ” I experienced som ugly comments and racist views.”

Deneeta Pope now a Obama supporter donated $2000.00 to Congressman Ryan’s 2007 election campaign. 

For the life of me I see no resemblance between pictures taken of Paul Ryan 20 years ago with the one below, but that has nothing to do with an interesting article.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Deneeta Pope, the Young Black Woman Who Paul Ryan Dated For Five Years, Revealed By Daily Mail

In a 2005 interview, Mitt Romney’s future running mate said that he had been confronted with racism personally, because he had dated an African-American and also had a brother with a black wife. ‘I have a sister-in-law who’s African American,’ he told Milwaukee Magazine.

Pope also said that while their relationship was not very serious, they have remained friends through the years.

‘It tells you the kind of guy Paul is when you learn that he has remained friends with all of his friends that he met in college.’

Paul Ryan’s RNC Speech: ‘Like Stiletto Attacks, Each One a Short Jab That Left a Mark’

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

There can be little doubt that Congressman Paul Ryan was the right choice by Mitt Romney as his selection for Vice President of the United States.

It there is such a thing as a perfect choice for the perfect time, Paul Ryan may be it.  

Mark Boster LA Times

His presentation was so enjoyable and on the mark as he treated Obama as he has treated us the past too many years, to a death by a thousand cuts. (It’s included below in the event the reader missed it.)

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message. 

Following day two of the Republican National Convention, Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer reacted to vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s address at the GOP convention, calling it “bold” and “effective.”

“[Ryan] went way beyond just the attacks — which he did extremely effective — like stiletto attacks, each one a short jab that left a mark,” he said. ”

In one of the best received lines of his RNC speech, Ryan said, “College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life.”

Krauthammer said the line “cleverly reminded people…of the fact that Obama has disappointed them. He had so much promise.”

He also said that there was a theme of “American exceptionalism”in both Ryan and Condoleezza Rice’s speech, each reminding Americans that Obama is conducting a “war on success.”

“It was thought that the first night of the convention was to be the night where Obama had his skin ripped off and the case against was made – and that night had been lost. Well, Ryan did that tonight,” Fox News political analyst Brit Hume said of Ryan’s speech.

He continued: “He probably did that job pretty well in the eyes of a great many people out across this country. The speech was interesting, it was compelling, it had humor and the moment when he mentioned his mother his pride in her […] that was worth a lot too in terms of the sense that this is a nice young man. A nice young man who delivered nonetheless a lethal shot night.”

How the Republican ticket can suit the moment and use Clark Kent—er, Paul Ryan.

As Ms. Noonan so frequently does, she hit the ball out of the park on this one and it’s still rolling.

The last three years and nine and a half months have seen the United States and her citizens for the most part afraid and frozen in a state of wonder.

She uses her forum to remind of of the age-old quote by  Sir Edmund Burke, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke

 PEGGY Noonan: It’s the Circumstances, Stupid

Columnist's name

Americans are not ideologues. They think ideology is something squished down on their heads from on high, something imposed on them by big thinkers who create systems we’re all supposed to conform to. Americans are more interested in philosophy, which bubbles up from human beings, from tradition and learned experience, and isn’t imposed.

Lately we are hearing a bit about ideology, but the work of a great political philosopher, Edmund Burke, is more pertinent. Burke respected reality, acknowledged human nature, and appreciated political context. In “Reflections on the Revolution in France,” he wrote, “Circumstances (which with some gentlemen pass for nothing) give in reality to every political principle its distinguishing color and discriminating effect. The circumstances are what render every civil and political scheme beneficial or noxious to mankind.”

That’s what Republicans and especially conservatives in this heady moment have to keep in mind: the circumstances. See complete article below:

House Republicans Pass Budget Will It See The Light Of Day?

Of course this will never be voted on by the Senate as Majority Leader, Harry Reid will never allow it to be brought to the Senate floor.

While emphasizing the profound choice facing the American people and the critical need to advance a budget that makes good on the American promise of leaving our children with more opportunity and a stronger nation than our parents gave us, he also addressed the historic decision to be made by the United States Supreme Court in dealing a crushing blow to the Obama administrations “Affordable Health Care Law.”  Should the do so it will be putting government where it should be, in the hands of the people and not at the whims of political bureaucrats.

“Our Churchillian Moment” by Paul Ryan, Chairman on the House of Representatives Committee on the Budget.


I feel honored tonight for a special reason. Twenty-one years ago my mentor, the late Jack Kemp, was given the very first of these awards. And he loved receiving it. He loved to quote “Sir Winston,” along with his other political heroes, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson.

He admired these men because of their dedication to the power of ideas – especially the idea that human freedom and equality of opportunity were the greatest forces for good the world has ever known.

Twenty-one years ago – receiving this very honor – Jack spoke of Churchill’s attachment to the Declaration of Independence – especially its moral defense of the ideas he loved.

People jokingly called Jack a bleeding-heart conservative, but he was effective precisely because he insisted on making the moral, humanitarian case for the economics of freedom.

America should listen to Paul Ryan

Human Events

Starr Parker

Comment by Jim Campbell

Starr Parker is an incredible woman. She is the founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a 501c3 think tank which explores and promotes market based public policy to fight poverty, as well as author of the newly revised Uncle Sam’s Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America’s Poor and What We Can do About It.

Please listen to her and Paul Ryan, they both come from divergent roots but certainly know what ales America and have come up with serious propositions to turn our country in the right direction once again. 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Last week, one of the Republican Party’s young stars, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc), spoke at the Heritage Foundation and gave forth his vision of America and what we need to do today to restore our vitality.


Listening to Ryan, I’m reminded of the late, great Congressman Jack Kemp, for whom he once worked. He talks about America as an “opportunity” society, driven by the ideals of individual freedom, limited government, traditional values, and free enterprise.

To sum up his working hypotheses: These are the values that made America great. Our economic machine is sputtering today as result of departure from these values. Today’s task is to restore them and get America growing again, which will benefit everyone.
