This weak and timid President talks big...
and does nothing: A devastating attack on
Obama by a top Washington insider

Daily Mail (U.K.), by Clark S. Judge

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/20/2014 3:23:54 AM

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Is it really possible for anyone to doubt anymore that the projection of American weakness is entirely on purpose and, in fact, *is* Dear Leader Barack Hussein´s foreign policy? You know, the kind of apologetic submissiveness every single "progressive" in the world was screaming for the US to adopt during the Bush years?

This is not ineptitude. It is the nuts and bolts of the very intentional American Decline the Left so rabidly desires and has counted on Dear Leader Barack Hussein to deliver. Which he is doing. On purpose. And barring impeachment, the downward spiral will continue, utterly unopposed, for 32 more months.

He simply appears weak because the racism card, his only card, is ignored on the international stage.

The sad thing is, this is the fundamental transformation that he and "those we´ve been waiting for" so fervently desired.
I wonder if there´ll be anything left to rebuild from once we get rid of Obongo since the GOP for the most part seems to be on the same page of the playbook that the Dems are reading from.

Last line of article...It is not just American interests that a flailing White House threatens. It is that of peoples everywhere.

The day after the election in 2008, I emailed a friend in Canada that 0bama would take the US down and that, when he did, the rest of the world would go with us. She thought I was being arrogant. I wonder what she thinks now.

FTA: Perhaps it is time for a key ally like Prime Minister David Cameron to have a friendly talk with the President.

I hate to break it to Mr. Judge, but Barack isn´t going to listen to a "honky" from Great Britain, a country that was so mean to Barry´s peeps in Kenya. It´s a new day in America, and whomever used to be our friends, especially white European countries, will only receive Barry´s middle finger. Get used to it world - it´s payback time - at least in Barry´s small mind.

If the Democcrate had an ounce of integrity they would rein in their President and put a stop to the chaos. They should be ashamed to put party before country. But they have no integrity and will not do so.

The destruction of the country has always been purposeful. I can´t help but wonder if the "handlers" realized that it would also destroy the bringer of all things destructive for the country. More and more he appears weak mentally and physically. I can´t imagine he and ValJar struggling through the rest of his dangerously flawed administration.

Past performance tends to be a good predictor of future performance.

Obama may be a case in point. As editor of a law review, Mr. Obama was not known for outstanding leadership; as a state senator, Mr. Obama
avoided hard choices by voting "present;" as a U.S. senator, Mr. Obama mainly prepared to run for higher office.

Some think this pattern of performance ("weak and timid") is now situated in the White House.

Point of clarification, #14: The current Wanker-in-Chief wasn’t the editor of the Harvard Law Review – a position that traditionally goes to a student who is well within the top 10% of his class academically. Instead, and tellingly, he was the president of the HLR – which, although it certainly dresses up one’s resume, is essentially an administrative position, somewhat akin to that of the managing partner in a law firm.

Although by custom the president is expected to contribute an article or two to the publication, the WiC never did so. His contemporaries have also reported that he lobbied, more or less discreetly but persistently, for the job – and was given it primarily (a) for the liberal cachet of naming the first non-white individual to the post, and (b) to shut him up.

That third photo of Obama made the hair on my arms stand up. I realize this comment isn´t relevant to the article itself, but the photo is so revealing. There is nothing good there, nothing upbeat, nothing American, nothing elevated. It honestly gives me chills to see that photo.

As for the actual article, I´m not certain Obama would make a tough decision and stick to it if his life depended on it. He doesn´t have risk in his constitution unless someone else it taking it.

He will never make a tough decision unless he, like Sun Tzu, knows in advance that the cards are stacked in his favor. That is why he won´t go through Congress -- he´ll get slapped down again.

No, he wants Republican fingerprints on his decisions so that when they fail, and they always do, he can blame them. Barring their cooperation, he simply writes EOs.

I´d ask what we did to deserve this cretin, but I already know.

The one thing that sticks in the back of my mind is "What is going to happen when Obozo DOES complete in turning the US into a banana republic"? Then what. Do the "progressives" really believe that everything is going to be peaches and cream and that everyone will be equal in all things? And just who or what is going to protect this country from outside attack? Themselves, just by being "nice" to the rest of the world? If so, then we have a country full of people that are mentally ill. NOTHING like that has EVER existed in the history of mankind. And to think it will in this day and age is unbelievable. And I suppose that they think that THEY will run everything simply because they are smarter that we are. And the real outrage is that WE are supposed to like it./rant

The country elected an incompetent fool and the world is paying a price for it. He has NO idea of how global politics work. The personality politics that he employs here aided by the media does not work in the larger world.

Suggesting someone "have a talk" with him is ridiculous. BO has no capacity to learn and his ego and handlers isolate him from anyone who might be helpful.

We are stuck with the dope for now.

Maybe people will start to learn that a presidential election if far more than a popularity contest. The president actually has to run the country and make significant contributions to running the world as well. A community organizer is a completely insufficient preparation for the responsibility as we now can see.

Michelle Obama: U.S. Has Improved
´By Almost Every Economic Measure´
Breitbart Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/4/2014 10:36:54 AM     Post Reply
In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Gay marriage debate

NEW YORK — As same-sex marriage cases cascade through the federal courts, Republican politicians find themselves awkwardly split into three camps. There´s a small but growing number who favor legalizing gay marriage, a hard-core faction that continues to denounce it, and a sizable group in between that seems to wish the issue would disappear. At one end of the spectrum, at least eight GOP members of Congress have endorsed same-sex marriage, and two openly gay GOP candidates for the House hope to join them. In Massachusetts, Richard Tisei has run ads featuring his husband. In California, Carl DeMaio ran an ad showing him

Poll: 51% of Democrats support

Note: Hate speech, not hate crimes. YouGov asked people about hate crimes for its poll too and found bipartisan support for the federal law that provides steeper penalties for crimes motivated by hatred of the victim’s race, religion, gender, or national origin. Sixty-four percent of Dems gave thumbs-up to that versus 54 percent of Republicans. A plurality of Republicans also support expanding that law to target hate crimes committed against gays: 44 percent say yes versus 30 percent who say no. Hate-crimes laws matter in the sentencing phase. If you’re guilty of the underlying offense, then you can be punished more

On Friday, a Washington D.C. hospital admitted a patient with possible Ebola symptons. If the patient is confirmed to have the virus, it would be the second documented case in the U.S. While we know the public is concerned about the spread of this incredibly dangerous virus, what many may not know is that it has the potential to impact the stock market, and the economy, even if it doesn’t spread.

Mitt Romney just made a savvy next step in his quiet, camouflaged 2016 campaign. Like a growing number of Americans, Romney refused to declare a political party when he filled out a new voter registration reform in Utah. It´s the sort of party-rejecting step that could position a reinvented Romney to become America´s first non-Democrat or Republican president since the 1800s. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the new Utah registration form completed and signed by Romney last August deliberately leaves out any party identification. As the Republican nominee in 2012 and a Republican candidate in 2008, this would seem to

The Democrat/Progressive Party may be signing their own death certificate in the 2014 elections with their mishandling of Ebola. One and half million people are quarantined in Sierra Leone. The first case has hit America. And all Obama has done is make a speech saying everything is fine here, but he’s sending American troops into harm’s way there. A ghastly virus that kills 50-100% of its victims and has no known treatment is something people notice. It is something women notice. Ebola is creating an epidemic of fear, for good reason.

Scientists to ‘fast-track’ evidence
linking global warming to wild weather
Independent (U.K.), by Tom Bawden    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/4/2014 3:06:58 AM     Post Reply
Scientists are to challenge the climate-change sceptics by vastly improving the speed with which they can prove links between a heatwave or other extreme weather event and man-made changes to the atmosphere. It typically takes about a year to determine whether human-induced global warming played a role in a drought, storm, torrential downpour or heatwave – and how big a role it played. This allows climate sceptics to dismiss any given extreme event as part of the “natural weather variation” in the immediate aftermath, while campaigners automatically blame it on global warming. By the time the truth comes out most people have lost

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
