Obama´s inept foreign policy
USA Today, by Glenn Harlan Reynolds

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/3/2013 9:38:47 PM

One of the things we were promised back in the 2008 election campaign was that under a Democratic administration America would be better liked and more influential in the world. Forget those dumb cowboys in the Bush/Cheney administration whose brash style grated on foreign sensibilities: Smooth, Europhile Democrats would win over the world, ushering in an era of peace and good feeling. So, as Sarah Palin might say, how´s that hopey-changey stuff workin´ out for ya? Not so great, as it turns out. Things got off on the wrong foot right away with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s botched "reset"

Watching Obambi and his minoins run ´foreign´ olicy is like watching a Jr high talent show. At times it is almost entertaining but most of the time one has to be polite an patient.

The problem is that others will pay the price. In some cases, people will be paying with their lives.

If only the lofo dim voter in America would be at least somewhat willing to open their eyes and ears to what Obie and Bite Me have brought to the country. Political brainwashing is a powerful thing, no? Thanks msm - you know who you are.

No blood for ego! I pray that the Republicans won´t go along with this fiasco, but my faith in them is running on empty. We have no business doing this. Putting our military near a muslim civil war with crazies on both sides who hate us and will use chemical weapons is unconscionable.

I am surprised to read an article critical of Obama in USA Today. Hopefully, someone in Boehner´s, Cantor´s, McConnell´s or McCain´s office might read it as well, and while they are at it, they should read The Independent´s September 3 article about the chaos going on in Libya two years on from their Arab spring. The American people, the Syrians, the faith leaders, the military are all telling the leaders to stay out of there, or it´ll just end up in chaos like Libya.

What is so sad about this entire episode is the lack of real political opposition except by a few such as Sens. Paul, Cruz and Lee. The next sad thing is all the talk of Hillary in 2016. The next sadder thing is how all (little that it was) attention is off of the IRS, NSA, Benghazi, etc scandals.

1. Bush never said war with Iraq was ever over them having WMDs. This was what the Dems, MSM and all lefties started saying repeatedly.
16 Words in the State of the Union speech about info that Iraq was tryig to buy yellow cake was taken by the Dems, repeated, repeated and repeated again and again until ALL were indoctrinated.brainwash to believing the reason for going into Iraq.
It was plainly stated time and again it was Regime Change.
2. obama wants to continue his ARAB spring and it´s looking more like the Saudis are the backers of the Arab Spring.
3. Articles about rebels receiving the chems from Prince Bandar of S. A. is reported.
4. obama thinks this action with Syria will keep Benghazi off the table. The two IMO are connected with arms being supplied to the rebels/al qaeda...the two are closely connected.
5. Refuses to consider Egypt a coup----but remember it didn´t take but seconds after Morsi was installed for obama to call and congratulate his muslim brotherhood friend on his rise to the top in Egypt. Is he standing with millions in Egypt who wanted the muslim brotherhood gone.
6. How in the world can anyone who has been such a total screw-up even begin to want to show his face at a G-20?
7. High ranking muslim brotherhood imprisoned by Gen. Sisi in Egypt has A son who is saying there is proof that obama is a registered Muslim Brotherhood, I believe that story more today than yesterday.
8. WHY did he bow to the Saudis?

It is time for Mike Zullo to release A
It´LL the information Arpaio´s Cold Case Posse has collected to prove documents provided by obama and claimed to be under penalty of law to be true, certified copies of his B.C. are nothing more than FRAUDULENT documents are computer generated at 1600 Penn Ave. Proof of FRAUD. Committing FRAUD has no Statute of Limitations for legal ramifications.

Obama hasn’t squandered American power, whatever the neocons think. THEY did that by executing failed wars in utterly failed states such as Iraq. Having used our military might to no avail, we now threaten it and are somehow surprised we aren’t taken seriously. And enough with the arguments about credibility! The United States would benefit by nothing more than accepting the fact that we do not have the power to control that region and shouldn’t die trying.

Foreign policy, domestic policy, no matter what policy Obama endorses, it’s not worth the paper it’s printed on. In his case, Zig Zag?

Formerly “Community Organizer,” Currently “Country Disorganizer,” Barack Hussein Obama, if that’s even his real name, has proven time and again over five disastrous years that he is unworthy of the trust of “We the American People.”

Wonder of wonders, even a few in his heretofore sycophantic media are finally beginning to look at him sideways. What’s next for them? Dining on Crow and Billy Beer?

Watching lantern jawed Kerry bumbling explanations ,one has to visualize the same person in fatiques 3 months service in Vietnam denouncing and name calling the troops with whom he served .Have these people wondered what repurcussions will be metered out by Russia, Iran and the safety of Israel.A scenery would be Russia will increase armaments to Assad icluding their latest anti missile defence system . Has Obama Kerry et al willing to take responsibilty for co-lateral damage including killing more woman and children. Time out . The USA should keep out of this conflict otherwise it will explode with serious consequences.

As far as I´m concerned, the only action we should take anywhere in the middle east is to make sure we assist Israel. They are they only one´s in that part of the world that we have good relations with. Saudi Arabia? Not when they openly support al-Qaeda. And any of the other Arab states that do the same. I really don´t see any of them being "our friends". All they really want from us is dollars for their oil. That´s so a very small handful can live opulent lives while their subjects starve.

Over centuries nobody that´s knows anything has ever called the British "chickens" regarding any military action that they have embarked upon. Even Hitler did not want to fight with them. But now we have the British backing away from Obama´s proposed military action in Syria. That has to tell you something!

I watched Fox News at 90 p.m. tonight and they had on a special program on the attack on America of 9/11/2001. It brought back so many memories - I hope millions tuned in to see it. President Bush, IMHO, was masterful in his handling of this Muslim attack on America.

When it ended I thought "How on earth could voters have allowed this America-hating fraud to gain our White House? It was those with whom he sympathizes who perpetrated 9/11." Enough said.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
