What does the Obama
White House stand for?

Telegraph [UK], by Janet Daley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/21/2014 7:39:12 AM

Barack Obama is discovering--rather belatedly--precisely what is involved in being president of the United States. [Snip] He now has a full-blown, world-threatening foreign crisis in which the decisions that he makes from one minute to the next might result in immediate mass slaughter, a prolonged war or a gradual de-escalation of the conflict--or possibly all three in progressive stages. At the same moment, bizarrely, he is facing a domestic upheaval of staggering proportions: the return of riots and racially based violence in the urban streets of a kind which his very election as president was supposed to have made a

Comments:
Daley´s question at the end is surely rhetorical. She seems as lost in the wilderness as are we sometimes--but the article itself provides some of the many answers.

Obama´s WH will stand for anything as long as it doesn´t interfere with his golf and parties. Long past time to realize that the well being and safety of our country are never going to interfere with this sociopath´s pleasures.

Have been trying to figure out for some time how ´this man´ - Obama, happened to us. Who promoted him, groomed him, indoctrinated him, taught him about America, who supported and, perhaps, funded him. At some point I hope we learn the truth. It may not be pretty, and hard to swallow, but we deserve it.

Even America´s hopeful spirit seems to be waning under his ´rule´. We need someone strong and resolute to lead us out of the darkness he has brought upon our wonderful country - as well as our friends and allies around the world.

Let us stipulate that Obama did not win the White House; he was given it by a Chicago cabal.

And that cabal´s agenda is coming to fruition in Ferguson, MO.

Obama stands for 2 million square feet in Utah to monitor US citizenry. Obama stands for Eric Holder approving of the New Black Panthers intimidating voters in Philly. Obama stands for ramming Obamacare through the Congress with a ´vote´ in the middle of the night. Obama stands for opening the borders and letting the whole world (including terrorists) into this country. Obama stands for making Netanyahu wait 2 hours in the White House so he can finish his dinner. He stands for making the Dalai Lama leave thru the back door past garbage bags.

If it´s against the Constitution, he´s for it.

Obama may have thought he could create an era of peace and progress at home through America’s new doctrine of non-intervention. What he succeeded in doing was creating a vacuum which every rogue state and lunatic fantasist, from Russia to the would-be Islamic State, would rush to occupy.

None of the changes for the worse in America and in the world would have happened under Bush or any other POTUS except perhaps Carter. We are in deep cah-cah because of Obama´s immature unicorn-and-rainbow worldview

he President observed that if he had had a son, he would have “looked like Trayvon”. In other words, this might have been my boy who had been gunned down, so I am emotionally involved in a way that I would not be otherwise. Probably not a wise thing for a post-racial president to say.

The writer is not serious about O being "post-racial" but Obama did lead American voters to believe many lies, not the least of which was, "Vote for me and show the world you´re not a racist. Elect me and America will no longer have the slavery albatross around its neck.

He seems, in fact, to have difficulty hitting the right note in addressing the anger and alienation of disadvantaged black youth...but of the privileged mixed-race cosmopolitan man that he is: the urbane law professor whose father happened to be Kenyan but who has known little hardship in his own life.

People who are poor do not have an automatic right to be angry at others for it, or to consider themselves "disadvantaged" because of what others have and they don´t: They are themselves at fault for both their own poverty and their "disadvantaged" status because they refuse to divest themselves of the culture of dependency, entitlement, and violence.

Are there genuinely deserving poor? Absolutely and no one denies that. But what this POTUS and his cynical Party have done over the last six decades is to promote poverty by, using only one example, removing the work-requirement for getting a welfare check. Using another example, we pay for every child a welfare-mother has.

The White House stands for the following, to answer Daley´s question:

Isolationism, big government nanny-statism, soaking the rich, raising taxes on private businesses, godlessness in the public square, the elimination of private property, EPA-controlled private lives including your thermostat, substandard health-care, a royal presidency, confiscation of guns, racial turmoil in order to promote black-on-white Reparations, a Muslim-centered culture, and control over all media outlets, especially the internet and talk radio.

One last thing this Administration stands for: Burn the Constitution: It´s in the way of Marxist utopia.

"Obama was going to be the anti-Bush: the president who would pull America back from liberal interventionism with all its supposed arrogance. This was the key message of his foreign policy from the start."

The US has tried, unsuccessfully, to retreat from the world in the past. As the economic and military leader of the world, a retreat can only go far worse.

A leader would have honest conversations with the American people, convincing us that, although hard, we really have little choice but to be engaged in world affairs.

BO took the childishly simplistic and easy path. Close your eyes and all the bad stuff will go away.

I´m not sure of the end of the article. BO doesn´t have the experience creds of an Al Sharpton but Sharpton is called, accurately, a rabble-rouser. So WHAT is BO supposed to be? More like the Black losers, Jackson and Sharpton? More like a white guy?

Here´s a suggestion. Maybe he should be more like an AMERICAN and support the principles that have made the Country strong and great.

But there´s the rub. He doesn´t know how to be that either. He has a variegated past and a rudderless childhood. Somewhere along the line, in the murky mists of his college days, he got some focus. He could get praise and credit for doing nothing, simply because he was Black?, foreign?. As long as the adulation continued, he moved forward.

The presidency is not an affirmative action job and BO doesn´t know how to do anything else but smile and take unearned credit. The rock hard reality of failure stands in front of him and he can´t get past it.

The Obama White House stands for BO. In the beginning, that has always been enough. Now, it is almost useless.

I have one ounce of sympathy left and that goes to the girls who must call this guy father, realizing that he is a screw-up, a huge failure and a traitor to America. Long after barry has been kicked out of the White House, they will have to think about what might have been, what he could have accomplished for America if he hadn´t wasted time stroking himself, playing golf and wasting money.

I doubt it, #12. By now they have been thoroughly brainwashed on the brilliance and wonderfulness of their parents, and their entitlement to live as little princesses while the rest of the country goes down the tubes. They have every luxury imaginable, yet always look miserable. It´s highly likely that they are just as cold and uncaring as their parents.

The GOP has a bad habit of running political campaigns based upon not insulting anyone or pointing out repeated lies and race baiting by the Muslim Liberals now in power. They think they are, but they aren´t smart enough or tough enough to win elections anymore.

Has anyone here heard any definitive statements by the GOP on the situation going on in Ferguson, Mo right now. I would have thought they would have investigated the robbery and the shooting by now and made some definitive statements about the riots. Left at the altar again.

The Obama White House stands for criminal activity, race baiting and the destruction of this country. Now is that hard to understand.

Kurds Issue Dramatic Call to Arms
as Fresh ISIS Massacre Looms
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Ari Soffer    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/21/2014 9:30:12 AM     Post Reply
Kurdish fighters have issued an urgent call to arms amid warnings of an impending massacre by the Islamic State terrorist group in northern Syria. The Kurdish People´s Protection Unit (YPG) has been locked in a fierce battle with IS and other Islamist groups almost since the start of Syria´s civil war. Despite being relatively isolated and receiving no foreign aid from any states the YPG has proven perhaps the most effective force in pushing back against IS. But as the jihadis´ focus shifts to consolidating power in northern Syria the Kurds have found themselves under fiercer attack than ever.

Scottish MPs´ fury at Farage´s demands

The MEP asked all 59 MPs from Scottish constituencies to promise in writing not to take part in votes and debates in the Commons which have no impact on Scotland. Mr Farage wants the voluntary abstaining policy to last until a “wider constitutional settlement” is agreed upon so “the [Scottish] tail can’t continue wagging the dog any longer”. In a letter to the MPs he said: “Until this consensus is reached, there is the urgent need for Scottish MPs not to determine legislation on devolved matters in England.

David Cameron dramatically played the patriotic card yesterday by accusing Ed Miliband of trampling on the rights of the English by blocking ‘home rule’ measures for England. In a move designed to upstage the Labour conference, which started on Friday, the Prime Minister raised the stakes in the bitter war of words that has raged since the Scottish referendum. Mr Cameron called on Mr Miliband to drop his opposition to Tory plans for ‘English votes for English laws’ to match devolved powers for Scotland, which have been promised now the Scots have voted to reject independence.

French fighter jets struck against the militant Islamic State group on Friday morning. [Snip] Four laser-guided bombs struck the Iraqi military base, and hit a munitions and fuel depot, according to a French military official. The attack made France the first foreign country to publicly add military muscle to United States airstrikes against the terrorist group, which has drawn criticism around the world and in a unanimous UN Security Council resolution for its barbarity. French President Francois Hollande said the target was "entirely destroyed." Dozens of extremist fighters were also killed in the four strikes, according to Iraq´s military spokesman.

In a shocking let down of security, two men managed to breach into the White House in two separate incidents within a 24-hour period, causing the building to be evacuated. In the first incident on Friday night, 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez of Coperas Cove, Texas, jumped the fence just minutes after US President Barack Obama, his daughter and her friend boarded a helicopter on the South Lawn, reports USA Today. Gonzalez, who was unarmed, was only tackled by security after managing to get inside the doors of the North Portico, the entrance facing Pennsylvania Avenue.[Snip] Then a second man on Saturday

Western states defeated a Russian proposal on Friday to remove Syria´s alleged past nuclear activities from the agenda of meetings of the UN atomic agency, diplomats said. But in a vote that highlighted how polarizing the global political debate has become, China supported Russia´s initiative while only about half of the nations on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board - 17 out of 35 - voted against. Western diplomats argued that Damascus should be kept under pressure to cooperate with the IAEA´s long-stalled inquiry, even though this has hardly advanced in the last three years as the country descended into bloodshed.

A Mexican ecologist has blown the whistle on the corruption, lies and incompetence of the wind industry - and on the massive environmental damage it causes in the name of saving the planet. Patricia Mora, a research professor in coastal ecology and fisheries science at the National Institute of Technology in Mexico, has been studying the impact of wind turbines in the Tehuantepec Isthmus in southern Mexico, an environmentally sensitive region which has the highest concentration of wind farms in Latin America. The turbines, she says in an interview with Truthout, have had a disastrous effect on local flora and

Eric Frein, one of the FBI´s most wanted and the man authorities say killed a Pennsylvania state trooper last week, may soon be apprehended. For a second night, authorities on Friday closed roads near a home where a suspect in the ambush killing of a Pennsylvania State Police trooper recently lived with his parents, and this time gunfire was reported in the area. The shots were fired in the area around 6:40 p.m. Friday, a Monroe County 911 dispatcher said.

The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from August 23 through September 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”
