Obama’s golf outing after Foley
beheading was a huge mistake

New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/24/2014 4:50:15 AM

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there. With even his media praetorian guard appalled, the golf outing is sparking a wider understanding that Obama is hollow, empty of the routine qualities Americans expect from

Let´s not forget that he does far less damage while golfing than when he´s pretending to be president.

Not only does he not care what America thinks, I´d say it´s more like an in your face end zone dance celebrating the fact his plan is working. The Islamic State...the caliphate...is starting to roll. Fist bump, baby!

That photo of the fist-bumping, open-mouthed, carefree Obama should be the GOP´s campaign ad along with a photo for each scandal. Finish with "America alive or Democrat liberalism dead. You choose."

But this golf-photo is, hands down, the most effective and the most offensive. I am waiting for a presser where he talks about "hiding his grief".

With even his media praetorian guard appalled, the golf outing is sparking a wider understanding that Obama is hollow, empty of the routine qualities Americans expect from their president.

I would amend the last sentence to read, "...expect from decent human beings."

What I like is that these questions are now being asked, not ignored.

As commander in chief, Obama swore to defend the nation. Yet the rise of the demonic cult calling itself Islamic State has barely stirred him.

Remember his own words, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Not taking that seriously is a grave miscalculation.

...continued

With fellow Democrats faulting him, and with threats to America multiplying, it is impossible to excuse his conduct on the grounds of ignorance. If he only knows what the public sees, that would be more than enough to develop a strategy.

The above is particularly damning because the logic of it is not impeachable. He has no strategy for anything. But his surrogates do. And because he isn´t running the show, we have a shadow government in the White House.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called it “an organization that has an apocalyptic, end-of-days strategic vision that will eventually have to be defeated.”

So long as Obama must take the responsibility for bombing the snot out of "the Islamic State", it won´t happen. He will never personally order strikes against his own people.

He doesn’t care about politics. The raid was ­revealed to protect the only thing he does care about: himself.

Bada-bing. That is easily seen among the ruins of his presidency.

All this indicates (is) that Zippy and his handlers have come to believe that the situation is now ´safely´ beyond the need for pretenses. This is very ominous. Either they believe the damage is now irretrievable or arrangements are in place to keep them in power indefinitely. I use the word them because it might explicitly include 0bama or may not. Something to chew over.

Obama has never been held accountable for any of his actions. However, as we all learn in life, actions have consequences. The optics of that golf outing is seared into the minds of Americans. Many witnessed the horrific barbarity that took the life of Jim Foley and were revolted by the image. Obama may have been able to skate on this one with the media but America is outraged by his callous tone deaf behavior. He made a huge error. He let the American people and the world see exactly who he is which is a self-serving, fraud who didn´t have the decency to, at the very least, hide his frat-boy compulsion to play golf for one day. He not only teed off immediately, he allowed himself to be photographed laughing and fist bumping. The content of Obama´s character is shameful and his heartless conduct proves it. He is a typical narcissist, totally self-focused and incapable of feeling empathy for anyone. He is a disgrace.

My take on this comes from opinions and comments I have read from other articles. A lot of people are justifying this with Obama "needs a vacation" and I suppose I will give him that. Reluctantly only to make my point.

The fist bump is what rattles me. He claims to be a sensitive guy but I don´t know him. Thus, my opinions come from pictures. Why the fist bump when he knows someone is probably taking a picture? Is it truly a celebration of the golf game or is there more? Questions arise even more so. His loyalty to America mostly.

Unfortunately the word ´shame´ and the word ´Obama´ are not to be uttered in the same sentence. This is the 11th commandment of our beloved media. This is a man who has been catered to, fawned over, and fainted for over his political career. Why would anyone think he would take a beheading as something serious? Doesn´t involve him, so off to the links and see ya later.

And one more think to ponder about: If you add up all the things Bammy has done to undermine the country: IRS, Eric HOlder, illegal EO´s, releasing Taliban leaders, etc..etc.. Who here wants to wager that he would NOT get reelected again if he were to run? Herein lies our problem.

Finally, after six long years something Barry has done provokes outrage - who knew that all it took was a simple fist-bump during a golf game?

BTW, is it just me or does Valerie Jarrett´s cousin, Cyrus Walker, look an awful lot like Barry in the picture? Might he be able to pose as Barry´s double when Barry is otherwise engaged? If all that the double has to do is ride in the limo and wave at the crowds, I suspect no one would know.

A couple of observations about Obama´s obsession with golf...for someone who is also so obsessed with race, I find it fascinating that he is so obsessed with a "rich" white man´s sport that originated in Scotland...doesn´t exactly mesh with "Dreams from my Father." Wonder what Bill Ayres thinks. I also find it fascinating that he constantly golfs with very rich BLACK men. It was just a few years ago that he loved a good pick up basketball game -- the game of the streets -- and now it´s all golf all the time. I´m sure his peeps in Ferguson can relate.

One reason Obama may just be as giddy as a school girl before prom(the Jarrett cousin has a downright maniacal smile grin) is because he was behind the creation of Sunni ISIS. It would all makes sense.

The best way to defeat leftists when they start up their time machine, compare vacation hours of past presidents to Obama, is to mention to them Obama DOES NOT DESERVE to be on a vacation: He shredded the Middle East, crushed the US economy and has now opened the southern border to let in his illegal/terrorist buddies, just to name a few. He needs to be in DC working on these problems and if he does not want to be president anymore, resign and let someone else try. Lefties go silent.

Concentrating on Obama´s behavior (what he does and says), it´s not complicated.

His less-than-heartfelt statements about the Foley incident are examples of what is typically found on the left: Ideas (ideology) are far more important than people.

His escape to the golf course and his buddies temporarily diminishes the stresses and anxieties that come with his job (a disassociation that "protects" one´s ego or sense of self).

I agree #27. The horror of 9/11 hasbeen whitewashed from the american public. I remember not long after it happened, certain liberal groups thought it was a bad idea to keep showing footage; they claimed it was just too "upsetting" . I think it should be shown every day, still. Liberals will do ANYTHING to protect the false notion that we are safe.

Really great point #6.

Hitler laid out his strategies and philosophies explicitly in ´Mein Kampf´. Yet, everyone was shocked when he pursued them once he came into power.

When Obama said "I will stand with the Muslims", the vast majority of people believed that he did not mean what he said, inserting in their definition that what he really meant was "I will stand with the Muslims, as long as they do not harm Americans."

What if, like Hitler, Obama really said what he meant?

Oh, I don’t know. The explanation could be quite simple. You see it all the time. The last couple years before a guy retires, sometimes he emotionally checks out. He’s bored, uninvolved, and could care less what is happening in his colleagues’, employees’, or customers’ lives. When he is actually forced to put aside his travel brochures or fishing tackle catalogues or cabin floor plans or whatever he will occupy himself with the moment he is out the door for good, he only grudgingly goes through the motions, sometimes complaining the whole way. You get the bare minimum at most, and that’s on a good day.

And if you start with a president who was lazy and uninvolved in the first place, with a natural aversion to making decisions and a penchant for hogging the credit, blaming others when things go wrong, and giving people the finger on the side of his face like a snotty 12 year old, check-out time looks pretty ugly.

His post-Foley golf game may have been a “mistake,” but I doubt it was unintentional.

Resident Zero doesn’t give a damn for decency or propriety. He never has. There’s a black pit in his character where those traits should reside. Until now, though, he’s taken the trouble to pay lip-service to them – or at least to conceal, behind arguably ambiguous gestures, his contempt for all things American. (Did every nose-itch or stray eyebrow-hair really require on-camera attention from his middle finger?)

Today things are different. Dangerously different, as he apparently can’t even be bothered to fake it any longer. I fear that as his time in office grows shorter his essential nature will be further revealed. Whether it will take the form of craven, cringing catatonia or blind rage remains to be seen.

What´s most amazing about this empty word spouter is that he doesn´t even pretend to care about appearances. If GWB had indulged in such in-your-face pleasure seeking, especially after having just seen a video of an American citizen having his head sawn off with, essentially, a steak knife, the Mainstream Media would have been comparing him with Hitler and Kim Jong-il. And, tragically, 85% of black American--down from 95%--won´t let anything get in the way of their worship of this anti-American, the most divisive figure ever to occupy the White House.

Mr Goodwin´s fury has been righteous for some time, but he falls into the common trap of offering up Bill Clinton as a paragon of empathy to contrast with Obama.

Clinton´s ´I feel your pain´ was as false and cynical as anything Obama´s speechwriters have foisted on us. It is memorable not for its depth of feeling but for its obvious mendacity - particularly because pain is not transient. Clinton didn´t feel anyone´s pain because he couldn´t and, more to the point, he wouldn´t anyway.

The photo accompanying the article is appalling and alarming.
Barry´s new .ahem.." friend " Cyrus Walker looks as euphoric and ecstatic as Barry.
Men playing golf or tennis or other sports with other men don´t generally giggle and behave like a
romantic couple .
Valerie Jarrett , described as his mother figure , was the matchmaker between her cousin Cyrus and Barry.
She probably told him to go out and play while she runs the country.
Limbaugh insists on describing Barry´s increasingly bizarre public behavior as some sort of Machavellian feint.
While the rest of the world sees , as Goodwin aptly described
" ....an empty-headed frat boy, numb to the world.
Maybe that’s not just an appearance.
Maybe it’s the truth. Maybe that’s all there is. "
There are obvious conclusions from Barry´s accelerating
and abnormal public displays which must have been going on in private for years .
There aren´t any adults in his inner circle or else he is completely out of control.
Probably both.
The photos must be used by Republicans in November and tied to every Democrat.

Mark Levin said the other day that individuals don´t matter to Obama - only his overall philosophy of how he needs to remake the world into his vision of UTOPIA.

This of course is the communist point of view - we plebes don´t matter, and the people at the top don´t care because they exempt themselves from the utopia they´ve forced on the rest of us.

Our founders were so unusual in respecting the individual as the supreme entity instead of the faceless crowds who were forced by masters to follow a vision that overrode their own initiative.

A lazy,doper puppet with a minimal IQ who´s doing what his superiors tell him to do.

Seems even they don´t need him much any more except to sign another piece of paper to continue to destruction of my country.

They´re probably telling him to stay on the golf course and out of their way.

Remember, gentle Ldotters, that the chip-off-the-old-block son of Frank Marshall "Pops" Davis is fully aware of the plans that the Hamas savages had in store for the start of the Jewish New Year, using the tunnels which construction he and Hildebeest personally decided our tax dollars were worthy of funding.

It is not simply snark or wordplay, to refer to this creature, this son of Pops Davis as "Obola." He truly is akin to a deadly virus.

And the whole world truly is infected.

Yea, but Val gets much more mischief done with HER phone and pen w/o Barry under foot and requiring her vigilant coaching. And he does require minding... She leaves him alone on the golf course and he´s grinning and high-fiving 10 minutes after delivering those faux presidential, perfunctory Foley murder remarks.

He spends his time and energy on things that are most important to him. Golf and vacations. Not terrorists and the economy.

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down
as abortion rights recede in South
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 10/4/2014 7:48:03 AM     Post Reply
ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

You Want Executive Action?
Here’s Some Executive Action

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas to any country that won’t take back its own citizens; Stop

How Ebola Compares to

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

How Many U.S. Cities Need An Ebola Case
Before Preventative Measures Are Taken?

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Cut off Mumia’s microphone

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

Dereliction of duty: Obama

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk. As reported by Breitbart.com, “A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1 percent

Imagine if you downloaded something that ended up wiping out all the information you needed before meeting with an IRS agent asking about discrepancies on your tax return. How sympathetic do you think that IRS agent would be? But when it comes to the IRS itself, this is just what officials would have us believe. Turns out too it’s not just Lois Lerner, whose computer crashed right after Congress asked for info about the tax targeting of conservative organizations. Now we’re learning of another case where hard drives holding information that would help tell us what the IRS was up to have

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo and a top aide resigned Thursday over revelations that they were among dozens of state officials who sent or received pornographic e-mails over state computers. In a letter to Gov. Corbett, Abruzzo said he had not been able to review the explicit messages he allegedly sent or received, but said he accepted responsibility for "any lack of judgment" he may have exhibited. He added: "It is my concern that these assertions have become a distraction from the great record of this administration." Hours later, the department´s deputy

7 Reasons Why the Oklahoma Beheading
Has Everything to Do with Islam

A convert to Islam who named himself Jah’Keem Yisrael (formerly Alton Alexander Nolen) beheaded one of his coworkers and was shot while trying to behead another on September 26 at his place of work, Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam. The UK Daily Mail reported Tuesday that “while the

It all comes down to this: 11 years later, the front door was unlocked. When Oscar Gonzalez jumped the White House fence late last month, he should have been just another statistic. A mentally ill man who was doing what a handful of others do every year, get onto the White House lawn and find themselves tackled by guards or brought down by dogs or fired upon by snipers. But this time it was different. The President and first family weren´t home, the snipers didn´t shoot. It´s still not clear where the dogs were or why there was no Uniformed Division officer

Desperate Wendy Davis Touts Discredited

HOUSTON, Texas -- A desperate Wendy Davis is now touting a heavily skewed poll that still shows her trailing by nearly ten points. With the margin of error in the poll being plus or minus 3.1 percent, she could be trailing in this discredited poll by as much as twelve points. After coming off two consecutive debate failures where Davis failed to even keep her composure and follow simple instructions from the moderator, Davis is now pushing a Texas Lyceum poll that shows her trailing Attorney General Greg Abbott’s campaign by 9 percentage points. The numbers in this poll are considered

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. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

Mitt Romney and 2016:

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.

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.

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.
