Abdication of a superpower
Washington Examiner [DC], by Jed Babbin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/7/2012 5:34:59 AM

The New York Times reports that the Obama administration has abandoned its limited goal of a negotiated settlement with the Taliban, leaving the Afghans to do it in the years after we leave. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi rebuffed President Obama's call for free speech in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, calling in his United Nations speech for repression of any speech that offends Islam. President Obama intervened militarily in Libya after his then-defense secretary, Bob Gates, said America had no national security stake in that nation. The result, in the words of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,

It's not simply an abdication, it's willful dismantling. There's a big difference. He's not just withdrawing, he's tearing down our very capacity to defend ourselves, much less project our power globally to protect our interests.

Where is Congress and why are they not alarmed at Obama's methodical, unilateral disarming of our country's military infrastructure?

#1 is absolutely right, his father's "dreams" have translated into action as Obama morphs America into something unrecognizable from our founding. He's trashed our economy, disregarded our Constitution, hamstrung small businesses with crippling regulations, thwarted any move to energy independence, and cut our military defenses, dissed our friends and emboldened our enemies.

How nearly half of American voters refuse to see this is beyond me. The United States has been a beacon and a refuge to the world and is being gutted by the Usurper in the WH. I just hope and pray we can recover from this internal attack.

Eviscerate the malignant tumor occupying the White House!

If I may add, without "Paux Americana", the world is dangerous. Not from those that contend power to power against us, but by those that see "collateral" damage as a means of defeating us.

Terrorism warriors have been emboldened; they burn their environment to keep any peace distant and their rule absolute.

And this administration seeks no compromise to aid the foreign powers confronting them, Mexico against the drug cartels for instance, or engage these pirates and barbarians on a level to destroy them, Somalian pirates, Taliban, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.; only drone missile attacks on the leadership as a non-committal exercise of power through technology and not confronting the causes of this hate.

This pResident dishonors "Paux Americana" by withdrawal and thus devaluing the very security he was entrusted to maintain.

Is it November 6th yet?

This is America. In a few short centuries we have dragged ourselves up from a nation of hunters and dirt farmers and created the greatest country in the world. No skinny, delusional kenyan illegal immigrant can bring this down. It will take work and sacrifice to regain our place in the world but then most of us know all about that. The entitled class may die out but that would be a good thing.

I agree that Obama made himself known to all when he sided with Castro, Chavez and the Honduran wanna-be dictator ... the man who attempted to destroy that nation's constitution.
.... The Honduran Congress tossed Zelaya out, but OUR appeasing Congress has acted as if they are all deaf, dumb and blind to the anti-America president in our Oval Office.

There is nothing that congress can do when this moron in the wh just makes laws by fiat. We also do not control the Senate and it is not going to do a thing - thanks to harry reid. Impeachment is the thing that should be done to said moron, but not in time to remedy a lot of his actions. People that think obamacare is just another freebie are going to be shocked at the cost.

To those who say, and my own congressman is one, that there is nothing we can do as he makes law I say for what do we have a Constitution and rule of law. If it was this easy to trash our amazing nation it would have been done at the beginning. However, at that time we had men and women who were willing to give their sacred honor, fortunes, and lives. Now we have a Congress who is afraid of a communistic press and of losing the nests they have so well feathered. I say a pox on all their houses. We the People are rising up and "they" will be required to take a stand...are you with us or agin us!

I'm old enough to remember the turmoil during carter's rein. The world laughed at US. Our ally the Shah of Iran was left to shift for himself. carter wouldn't help him with asylum here in the good ole U. S. of A. He threw him to the wolves. carter gave away the Panama Canal -- which is now controlled by China. He watched our hostages suffer at the hands of the ayotolah (sp?) -- who cares.

AND -- then during clinton's rein the world laughed at the hound/dog chasing women and sending men to war with the "bj" under his desk in the Oval Office.

WE thought America was done for -- BUT -- WE came back under President George W. Bush's administration...

So -- take heart my friends. WE shall overcome these anti/american americans.....

This is traced back to the Russians, Chinese and Iranians. Look closely at who is directly around capt zippy, controlling him, and who they connect to. And follow the money. Uncertain? Think back on what the Verona files revealed about Teddy Kennedy and his offer during the Reagan era - and there was a lot more of that than just Kennedy and he did it more than the one time...

There is a method to Leftist madness. They think that by humbling America they will win friends and influence people to love America. The remarkable split in Leftist ideology is between malignant hate and loathing of domestic political opponents, and a pathetic cri du coeur to the love and affection of foreign peoples, including dedicated enemies of America. Leftists worry constantly about what "the rest of the world" thinks and feels about America. People like Obama and Hillary, having come to maturity in a climate of subtle and overt anti-Americanism, principally in academia, actually think that their mission is to make "the rest of the world" like us, and that the way to do that is to diminish and flagellate ourselves. They are political co-dependents and flagellants forever seeking their salvation in the good opinions of "the rest of the world."

In short, they want America to be loved and not feared. The consequences of their policy were perfectly predictable: America is neither feared nor loved, but hated and despised.

They -the Leftists- cannot even get along and work with their domestic political opponents. Why they should imagine they are going to become best friends with foreigners and those whose interests are not those of America is something of a puzzle. It is perhaps mainly the result of arrested development, emotional immaturity and lack of real world experience. Marijuana might play a role in some cases. Leftist fantasy ideology is a product of Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll and If It Feels Good, Do it! There is a strong element of hedonism at work in Leftist thinking. Many Leftists believe and say things, take positions and proclaim verities, attack and denounce opponents etc. because it makes them feel good to do so.

This "transformation" is exactly what the boy king had in mind. What you see in Obama's attitude/demeanor right now is frustration. He definitely has a goal and he wants to reach it. I doubt he will go quietly into the good night. We need to man up and shuffle him off to the trash bin of history. Our way of life must be continued or the world will fall into chaos.

Agree with#13. Boehner agreed to 50% in cuts to our defense if they couldn't negotiate a debt deal. From that point on, the Dems in Congress had no intention of negotiating anything. They are salivating at the prospect of destroying our military.

Keep praying for our country.

Since NOAA ordered millions of hollow-point bullets, like Homeland Security and Social Security, (for target practice dontcha know) ... the website of NOAA has drastically changed. No longer showing any current hurricane threat, but propaganda site for global warming, 'green' commentary, and 'citizen education'.
Boat US also changed, but is still recognizable as a place to check hurricane activity.

Before the collapse of the Soviet Union, the bi-partisan core of American foreign policy was anti-Soviet expansion, i.e. containment. When the Wall came down and the Russian flag raised over the Kremlin, the US lost that core. The US has never sorted out any foreign policy in the meantime...not Clinton, Bush43, nor Obama. To top it off, for more than a decade we have consumed ourselves in the Middle East for no more than some odd notion that it makes us safer at home. Our NATO allies have atrophied in our shadow, allowing the American behemoth to assume the very expensive role of World Defender in both political and cash terms. Guess what? We can't afford the role anymore...nor do we have any purpose with the "new world order" to serve as its unifying core justifying the massive expense. We're afraid to break things and kill people over principle. Not everyone wants to be #1 anymore. Frankly, there is NOTHING today that unites Americans as Americans...or, if you think there is, name it.

One of the great failures under Baraka Hussein Obama was the complete withdrawal from Iraq. The idea always was to leave a small force there to be able to call on American air power when the region needed. UE complete withdrawal left an Iraq with no air defenses. Iran can supply Syria with no opposition and can use Iraq to circumvent sanctions. Thanks to Hussein Obama the lives of thousands of soldiers were wasted.

He is doing the same thing in Afghanistan. We are no longer training the locals. No more joint patrols, just American patrols with ridiculous rules of engagement. When Obama retreats by the 2014 deadline we will leave untrained Afghans with no support. It will be another Iraq.

Egypt is much worse. Hussein helped the Muslim Brotherhood directly with his Cairo speech to his Muslim brothers. Hillary Clinton's closest advisor is Huma Abedin. Huma is the daughter of a Muslim Sisterhood board member, while the top person is Mohammed Morsi's wife, First Lady of Egypt. They will impose Sharia on 9,000,000 Coptic Christians.

In Libya Obama killed Ghaddafi. Benghazi, which was the capital of the old kingdom of Cyrenaica, was known to be a nest of al-quaedas.

How the entire Middle East and the North of Africa proudly proclaims: Obama, we are all Osama.

Amazing.

It is not this lazy person, who is "eye candy", poor golfer and just the front showcase. His interest is having bunch of bling on his chest (figuratively speaking) and plenty of time for opulent leisure. But there are strong dark forces behind all that. Don't you agree?

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

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.

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

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.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam!

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.
