Asia trip gives Obama
opportunity to build legacy

Associated Press, by Julie Pace

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/17/2012 11:03:41 AM

YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan- For President Barack Obama, expanding U.S. influence in Asia is more than just countering China or opening up new markets to American businesses. It´s also about building his legacy. Fresh off re-election, Obama will make a significant investment in that effort during a quick run through Southeast Asia that begins Sunday. In addition to stops in Thailand and Cambodia, the president will make an historic visit to Myanmar, where his administration has led efforts to ease the once pariah nation out of international isolation. The trip marks Obama´s fourth visit to Asia

Obama´s legacy:

Lost Egypt

Lost Iraq

Lost Afghanistan

Lost Israel

Watched while Iran developed and used nuclear weapons.

Waited to long to save Israel

Encouraged turning over the middle east to islamic extremist

Engineered the financial collapse of the United States

Ceded military superiority to China

Incurred more debt than all previous presidents before him ensuring that future children become slaves to and wards of the state.

Part of Obama´s "success" [that is, how he manages to continue his destruction of America and our values] is demonstrated by this article. It is a problem with two main aspects, at least one of which we must get past in order to stop him.

These two aspects are: 1. politicians treating Obama as "another politician´; work with him, reach out, compromise, give a little, take a little -- that´s all nonsense! Obama is the enemy, by choice, and well-demonstrated. 2. media who likewise treat Obama as "a President." Like the other ones. But a little different. Maybe. But it´s assumed by idiots like this article´s author and editors that Obama´s actions, and the motives for them, are no different from what another President´s might be. No hint that it´s ever thought [or better, noticed and exposed!] that Obama has a hateful hate-filled, wholly-destructive agenda being installed everywhere he can make the least inroad.

Re the media, this thought applies: if you´re not part of the solution, you´re part of the problem.

Nothing Obama tries will work and much of it will prove counter-productive. He and people like him -"progressives," Leftists, Democrats, news people, entertainers, financial and currency speculators who have struck it rich, children and ignoramuses in general- do not understand how the world works and how people -including themselves- actually think and behave. They think they do, but they do not. They have most of it exactly backwards. Their plans never work and always cause additional problems because they are founded upon a mistaken set of assumptions about reality which for some reason they are unable or unwilling to correct. They prefer fantasies that do not work to reality as it presents itself to be dealt with.

Obama might as well stay home. Other than photo-ops he is wasting his time. No foreign leader worth his salt would take a fool like Obama seriously. They will tell him what he wants to hear, make him think he has made great progress, and then go right ahead and do whatever they consider needs doing.

Americans are in for some painful and dangerous lessons in Obama´s second term. People are going to get hurt, very likely killed. His administration has established nearly all of the conditions needed for major outbreaks of violence in the Middle East. Full scale war is by no means unlikely. Attacks on America and American interests are a virtual certainty, all because of the Obama administration´s total misunderstanding of how the world really works. The silver lining to the coming cloud of catastrophes is that perhaps some, though not all Americans will learn from them and not make the mistake of putting people like Obama in charge of important matters.

Tell me again why Obama is going to Asia. Don´t we have more pressing issues at home, like the fiscal cliff and our dead citizens from Libya?

PS Tell the citizens of Asian countries to hide their women and children. The Secret Service is coming to town and they are going to want to party like it is 1999.
Also, make sure you see the cash first. BTW you´re welcome.

As for Obama, I hope he doesn´t bow to foreign leaders, like he did last time.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel. “Requiring the Census director to report directly to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a

Just in time for tax deadline day, a new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- say they pay too much federal income tax, while 42 percent say they amount they pay is "about right." Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
