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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

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.

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

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

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

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

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking
mortgage relief could get
stuck with a big tax bill
Washington Post, by Dina ElBoghdady    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/11/2014 10:28:52 PM     Post Reply
Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?
