  • BHO thinks he can rewrite history to save his #$%$. Unfortunately for him, he can't wipe this speech from history the way his minions deleted emails and wiped hard drives at the IRS.

    October 2011:

    THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. As a candidate for President, I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end -- for the sake of our national security and to strengthen American leadership around the world. After taking office, I announced a new strategy that would end our combat mission in Iraq and remove all of our troops by the end of 2011. As Commander-in-Chief, ensuring the success of this strategy has been one of my highest national security priorities. Last year, I announced the end to our combat mission in Iraq. And to date, we’ve removed more than 100,000 troops. Iraqis have taken full responsibility for their country’s security.

    A few hours ago I spoke with Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki. I reaffirmed that the United States keeps its commitments. He spoke of the determination of the Iraqi people to forge their own future. We are in full agreement about how to move forward.

    So today, I can report that, as promised, the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of the year. After nearly nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over.

  • They are as predictable as they are incapable of defending the man. But they won't admit that they've been wrong. No, they won't admit that conservatives have been right all this time. But they have to vent their frustration somehow that BHO is a failure, so they give thumbs down to any post critical of BHO and they give thumbs down to BHO critics even when they are posting something factual or incontestable about CLDX. Quite the immature group, liberals are. But that's why they're liberals: because they have never grown up; they've never become adults and they wish the world would conform to their childish fantasies. Instead, they get the nightmare of ISIS when the brutal truth of the world wakes them up from their dreams about BHO transforming the world by leading from behind.

  • Our president is worse than a two-year-old who says, "Not me," to parents who ask who broke the vase that was on the table when the kid was the only one in the room.

    The guy attempted to take credit for ending the war in Iraq. Now that it's a complete sheet storm over there he's trying to say that it wasn't his decision to withdraw troops from Iraq. He campaigned on that issue, he sought to bring home the soldiers, and now he's saying, "Not my fault," when the catastrophic results of his foolishness are coming to light.

    BHO is an immature, petulant, narcissistic, vain, incapable, feckless, arrogant, bumbling boob. How anyone can still admire or support that man, I will never understand. And he has more than two years left to continue making things worse. God save America, God save the world from BHO.


    President Obama refused to take responsibility for the lack of U.S. troops in Iraq, saying that American soldiers had to pull out due to political pressure from Iraqi leaders.

    “This issue keeps on coming up as if this was my decision,” Obama retorted when asked if he had any second thoughts, in light of the terrorist force taking over regions of Iraq, about having pulled all American troops out of the country. “The reason that we did not have a follow-on force in Iraq was because a majority of Iraqis did not want U.S. troops there and politically they could not pass the kind of laws that would be required to protect our troops in Iraq,” he said.

    It wasn't discussed before, MBB. I challenge you to find the thread. I have a better memory than you. The only thing that comes close to what I posted was long_vrts2 pointing out that Marucci talked about future Rindo patients not potential patients.

    The only reason I looked at what you wrote is because you and Ray have been the only two posts to my observation. And now I have a chance to expose you for the idiot blowhard you are.

    Find it... find the thread where my exact observation was already noted.

    If you can't, then shut up forever.

    Regardless, back on ignore you go.

    My responses:
    1. No, the control group living longer is not the only possible explanation. Tom Davis stated that over one-third of the patients enrolled to date have entered the study during the past eight months. So enrollment is going to be skewed toward the latter part of the study's enrollment period. The delay in reaching 50% of events could be due to enrolling more patients towards the end than at the beginning, Rindo working better than expected, the control group surviving longer than expected, or a combination of those three.
    2. I don't know where you are getting those figures from; I can't confirm any of your claims in the CC transcript. ~374 is not the expected number of events in 1H 2015; it is the expected enrollment of patients who have minimal residual disease for purposes of primary analysis. 233 patients in control arm? Patients will be randomized 1:1 into Rindo and control arms, so the control arm will have ~350 patients. Since I question your numbers, I don't think it's productive to analyze or speculate based upon them.

    I didn't catch this when I listened, but when I read the transcript it jumped out at me: in response to a question about ReACT's expansion, confirmatory arm being triggered to enroll more patients (because of evidence of anti-tumor activity in the first 23 patients, who have already been enrolled), Tom Davis did not use the conditional word "if"; he used the definitive word "when". They have the data in hand from those 23 patients, and it must be very positive.

    Gena Wang - Leerink Partners
    Follow up to previous question, just wanted to know for the rindo ReACT data, when you enroll, when you trigger additional 50 patients will you make announcements for that?

    Tom Davis

    Yes, when that addition is made we would announce expansion and of course we’ll be presenting the data behind it.

    The president doesn't want to name it because if the operation is named it will be remembered. If it is remembered historians will ask why the operation was necessary and what historical causes led to the circumstances that prompted the operation. Historians will conclude that BHO's premature and unwise withdrawal of American forces from Iraq after GWB successfully stabilized the country was the single cause of the instability in Iraq which led to ISIL rampaging and slaughtering.

    BHO is not naming the operation because he's a narcissist concerned about his legacy, which he is now in damage control over because his legacy is looking more and more like a complete sheet storm.

    BHO, the incarnation of liberalism, is a belly-flopping failure, which is now revealing that liberalism is a failed ideology, incapable of providing security, prosperity, freedom and stability for Americans and the world.

    Will voters reach the same unavoidable conclusion?

    The low-information voters will not. Those for whom liberalism is their religion will ignore the evidence and the conclusions. I hope there are enough other Americans left to vote sensibly.

    I never commented on that man nor that event. Get your facts straight before you make an accusation. But you libs just make stuff up to support your fantasy leftist failed ideology. You have to make stuff up because the truth is too difficult for you to face. You all pretended that BHO was qualified to be president, you overlooked the truth that he wasn't because you were enamored with his black skin, and look where that's gotten us.

    BHO orders AIR STRIKES in IRAQ?

    whippersnapper65 whippersnapper65 Aug 8, 2014 2:54 AM Flag

    I think libs will support Obama no matter what he does, no matter how hypocritical it makes them look. Libs will come up with some, any rationalization to justify in their minds their support for BHO.

    BHO is the incarnation of every liberal's wet dream. If BHO fails, as he is failing, it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that liberalism is a failed ideology. The only way libs can avoid concluding that their leftist worldview is a failure is by pretending BHO is succeeding and doing the right thing; the contrary -- but true -- conclusion would be too painful for them to accept, for it would require that they cease being leftists and begin adopting conservative views.

    What a corner they've painted themselves into: criticism of BHO is deemed racist, so if they are critical of BHO they will, by their own contorted reasoning, be racists.

    However they justify their immature, continuing support of BHO, it will likely involve facilely and reflexively blaming W, as usual.

    Oh, and to add one more ISIL scenario: if I wire ISIL, I'd threaten BHO and America with terrorist attacks on American soil if he uses the American military against ISIL. I'd say that we've sent sleeper agents over the porous southern border into America, and they are waiting for the call. Whether it's true or not, it would give BHO pause and cause him distraction at home among the American people. If it's true... then holy hell.

    It's conditional, like his infamous line in the sand he drew for Assad, which Assad crossed and Obama ignored.

    If ISIL crosses this red line in the sand, I wonder whether Obama would actually approve airstrikes. If I were ISIL, I'd test BHO's resolve. Then I'd bring out dead women and children and accuse him of genocide and launch a social media campaign to smear him, maybe featuring #bringbackourdeadkids.

    We still haven't heard from many analysts or institutions following the conference call. If several post on Friday morning, as they should, that Celldex is still a strong buy with reiterated price targets in the high $30s or mid $40s then Celldex should surge.

  • No doubt a miserable, pathetic liberal atheist individual or group is the one who had to stomp on someone else's pretty little flower garden like a mean, hateful bully. Liberals are the real haters; they hate goodness and truth.

    I think the restaurant in this story caved to avoid the expense and hassle of a lawsuit. I believe the policy of offering a discount to patrons who pray before their meal is perfectly lawful for a private business to offer.

    If it's not lawful, if that policy is considered a form of illegal discrimination, then are senior discounts unlawful age discrimination? I'm waiting for some young punks to threaten lawsuits if they aren't given the senior discounts at movie theaters and other establishments.


    A manager of the North Carolina diner that recently dropped its occasional 15 percent discount to customers who pray in public is speaking out on the threats of a lawsuit this week.

    Mary's Gourmet Diner made international headlines after a customer shared her "praying in public" discount on Facebook, garnering thousands of likes and shares. However, the Winston-Salem, N.C. restaurant has already ended the deal after coming under legal fire. On Thursday, The Christian Post spoke with a manager at Mary's, who chose to go unamed, that described his disappointment in the controversy surrounding the discount.

    "Our community has very strong individuals who have done nothing but support us and we give nothing but thanks to them. The ones that really have been harassing us are out of state individuals and not individuals that live in our community," said the manager, who wished to remain anonymous. "We are strong individuals, we have taken all of this in, and we appreciate everyone's support and unfortunately the bad has overruled the good."

    A better warning would be not to buy any AMBS stock at all. This message board is pure entertainment. Don't read these messages expecting to find any intelligent reasons to justify buying a nearly worthless penny stock in a nearly bankrupt company whose CEO has misled shareholders and strung them along in an effort to keep the gravy train flowing for himself. When the money runs dry, the CEO will be gone but he will have done well enough for himself, leaving a bunch of empty bag holding AMBS longs to cry on this board until Yahoo closes it after delisting.

    Your caricature of the founding fathers' idea shows you cannot be taken seriously. The founding fathers wrote into the Constitution a provision that would permit any reasonably mature, educated, accomplished and capable man to vote. You propose an oligarchy, not representative government. Since liberals are tyrants at their core, I'm not surprised you desire an oligarchy.
