The series is set in an alternate, matriarchal 1920’s Asia and follows a girl’s struggle to survive the trauma of war.

Leon Panetta argued that for all of Barack Obama’s strengths, he is missing an essential ingredient of leadership. He lacks “fire,” wrote Obama’s former CIA director and Pentagon chief. “The president relies on the logic of a law professor rather than the passion of a leader.”Obama has proved Panetta right again and again during his presidency, but never more dangerously so than with his shoulder-shrug approach to ISIS. Obama called it a “J.V. team” before it started beheading Americans. He said it was “contained” before it attacked Paris. Now he’s calling it “a bunch of killers with good social media.”Ron Fournier
President Obama is tired of all the critics who say his strategy to destroy Islamic State isn't working."The only thing that they're doing is talking as if they're tough," he complained last week. "If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, [they should] present a specific plan."What the rest of us need, Obama counseled, is more patience. "It's going to take time".Obama was right on one count: ?LATimes
The host Lee looks at the aftermath of Paris and most importantly what defense precautions to take to protect our citizens from a similar attack. Does Obama have an incorrect understanding of ISIS and what to target? Is slowing down ISIS in Northen Iraq and Syria something to boast about OR do we need to redirect our efforts in improving intelligence on those already here in may be planning an attack in conjunction with ISIS?
The British spoil the global Greenapalooza party while Obama bleeps coal; Louisiana turns "blue"; The Iranians multitask by simulating the "liberation" of Jerusalem and hacking the State Department at the same time; Illegal aliens continue gushing across U.S. southern border; Seventh Circuit unconstitutionally declares Wisconsin abortion law unconstitutional while total annual abortions continue to decline; How Kamala Harris is the senator California deserves; Hillary Clinton snubs MoveOn.org; Girls join homosexuals in destruction of Boy Scouts; The Ferguson Effect hits Chicago; and the Obama White House is hindering all investigations and withholding all records at the same time that it moves to illegally close Gitmo by imperial decree.
And then, in the third hour of the Saturday Afternoon Extravaganza on Constitution Radio with JASmius on KMET 1490-AM (4PM Eastern/1PM Pacific):
NATO member Turkey shoots down second Russian warplane in a month; Marco Rubio, not Ted Cruz, is the REAL ObamaCare-slayer; Ted Cruz overtaking Ben Carson and Donald Trump in Iowa; ACLU sues Indiana Governor Mike Pence to force Syrian "refugee" invasion on "living, breathing" constitutional grounds; and "smart power" (aka The Obama Doctrine) comes home to roost.
