Meet Tony Soprano, aka Barack Obama

We all know what the fictional New Jersey mob chief does to his political opponents: He kills them. Just ask his former partner Salvatore “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero, or the young Matthew Bevelaqua, two of the eight men Tony whacks during the show’s seven seasons.

Challenging this dubious record, the elected President of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave now can claim at least three notches on his own gangster Gat. Sending Navy SEALS to liquidate Osama bin Laden for crimes in 2001 that then Secretary of State Colin Powell promised us evidence, but failed to produce any to this day, was Obama’s first notch.

Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports that our President directed the CIA and the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command to execute Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. See “Obama praises killing of American-born al-Qaida leader in Yemen“.No arrest. No trial. No legal representation. Just more gangland-styled murders. And poor James Gandolfini can only sit and watch as his kill-count gets eclipsed.

Even Haaretz is slightly outraged by these extra-legal executions:

The killing of al-Awlaki, who was born in the United States, may mark the first time that a U.S. Commander in Chief has given a public order to the country’s security forces to premeditatedly kill one of its own citizens, without access to a trial or due process under American law.

Vigiler M. reminds us that “When the President does it, that means it is not illegal.

Liberals Give Obama an Ultimatum

Given the lackluster performance by the peace community, noted in last week’s report, we hold the Nobel Peace Prize recipient accountable in this sad saga of current events. Vigil member A posts the following graphic, depicting the visceral rage existing in the liberal community:

And that brings us to a three-year-late response to our liberal Ann Arbor friends, who said that some JWPF’ers threw their votes away by casting them for Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney in 2008. Our response is that we will most certainly not throw our votes away in 2012. You bet’cha.
