Cameron´s Defeat on Syria
Is Also President Obama´s

Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/30/2013 10:02:29 PM

In the deadly poker game that the great powers are playing over Syria, the British have just folded. Thursday´s vote in the House of Commons has not only damaged Prime Minister David Cameron´s authority, perhaps beyond repair, but forced President Obama to face the prospect of military intervention without the support of America´s staunchest ally. No wonder officials in Washington are making no secret of their fury that for the first time in half a century the Anglo-American "special relationship" has proved unreliable. It was Mr. Cameron who had tried to play the heroic part of Margaret Thatcher by taking the

Obama sure "enhanced" that special relationship when he sent that bust of Sir Winston Churchill back across the pond.

The Brits are not stupid. They know that Obama´s foreign policy is a joke that he will act in his own self interest- no one else´s (including America´s.)

The bust of Winston Churchill gets his revenge.
The passed down hatred for white colonialist from Papa Obama has come back to bite the son.
When Obama goes it alone he will be alone.

Churchill is turning in his grave, watching this amateurism. So is Reagan. And Thatcher.

Obama turned his back on our best ally and is now reaping the whirlwind. Nixon went to China; Obama went to the first tee. Reagan brought down the Berlin Wall; Obama can´t even persuade Moochelle to stop dressing like a superannuated hippie. Meanwhile, Holder is keeping poor black kids from attending good Louisiana schools. It´s depressing. The only job with ´rising numbers´ in the Obama regime is the guy who prints the exemptions for Obamacare.

Obie mistake, again, is he assumes the Brits are as ignorant as the 67 million sheep who drank his cool aid...twice now... and voted for this fraud. Being a routine business traveler to the U.K. myslef, I can tell you that the Brits are a hell of a lot smarter than Obie gives them credit for. With William and Kate having snubbed Obie for their wedding and for Obie´s returning the Churchill bust ( I guess because the bust did not resemble Obie´s jug-eared mug), what does Obie expect?

The United States of America is being governed by a bunch of college professor elitists who have no idea how to govern but only how to grab power and intimidate. They are completely ignorant of the history of this country--or the world--and seem to be proud of it. I have lived in fear of what their stupidity could someday bring about and it seems that we are about to find out.

The Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost.

I don´t see Britain´s refusal to back-up the the US as a defeat for Cameron, but a blackeye for 0bama.

When you elect a Feckless Mulatto Marxist, a Mr. Citizen of the World, someone just toooooooo cool for his hair, this is what you get.

He´s spent his entire presidency signing unConstitutional Executive Orders, foisting Socialist policies on us, ruining the economy, dividing the nation along all of the fault lines, jetting from one resort to another on endless vacations, him on one plane, the kids on another, the wife on another, and the dog on yet another; he´s hung out with professional athletes and rappers and played golf by day and spades by night, and he´s successfully blamed every wrong thing in the nation on someone else --like he was an observer standing on the sidewalk watching the bus crash, rather than the driver behind the wheel.

Well, the World is getting an up close look at Mr. Citizen of the World. I suspect World Leaders have seen him for a "cool" skinny brown man without a serious thought in his head all along, but the "common" population --here and around the world, is finally seeing the truth --that would be the ones paying attention.

Mr. Cameron will not have to worry about the defeat over Syria. The no-vote over Syria is a reflection of the fact that the Brits are simply tired of being stepped on by a seriously inept, incompetent, incapable, indecisive, and intolerably arrogant 0bama administration.

With all the events that are taking place in the middle east, I´m almost come to believe that Obozo just might be the AntiChrist that is foretold in the Book of Revelation. And if I´m not mistaken, what is believe to be Armageddon is located in Syria. And if even the smallest mistake is made in all of this mess, we just might have WWIII on our hands. And it will center on the middle east. In a way, it´s scary to think about. On the other hand, it would mean the 2nd coming of the real Christ. Now I could live with that.

Nevada rancher standoff turns

Mesquite, Nev. - A day after blinking in a showdown on the range, federal land managers pledged to pursue efforts to resolve a conflict with a southern Nevada rancher who has refused to pay grazing fees for 20 years. Bureau of Land Management spokesman Craig Leff said the agency would continue to try to resolve the matter involving rancher Cliven Bundy "administratively and judicially." Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees, according to the bureau. "The door isn´t closed. We´ll figure out how to move forward with this," he said Sunday.

MSNBC host Al Sharpton is back at the White House today, this time for a Holy Week prayer breakfast with President Obama and dozens of faith leaders. Sharpton’s arrival comes just two days after Obama embraced the controversial activist and former FBI informant at a New York event hosted by the liberal broadcaster. Obama used the Sharpton event to accuse Republicans of trying to reverse the 1965 Voting Rights Act and intentionally suppress black voters with state laws requiring voters to show identification. “The real voter fraud is those that try to deny our rights by making arguments about voter

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy said Monday that his standoff with the feds isn’t just about cattle: It’s about an “overpowering” bureaucracy in the U.S. that needs to be disarmed. “I only want to talk to one person in each county across the United States, and here’s what I want to say: County sheriffs, disarm U.S. bureaucracy. County sheriffs, disarm U.S. bureaucrats,” Bundy said on Glenn Beck’s radio show on TheBlaze on Monday. Beck said he invited Bundy on his show after speaking with him Sunday to try to understand the man whose cattle have ignited a flashpoint between federal regulators and states’

Like all mergers, the proposed $45.2 billion Comcast CMCSA +1.13% merger with Time Warner Cable TWC +0.69%—the largest and second largest cable providers in the nation—has its advocates and critics. There are certainly important questions about what impact the merger would have on consumers—but there are equally significant issues associated with the highly politicized approval process. The Obama Department of Justice, led by Eric Holder, must review the merger and decide whether to approve or block it. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration and Justice Department have a long track record of pushing the rule of law aside and making decisions based

A school which asked students to compare Martin Luther King to convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal in a lesson plan has been branded an ´absolute disgrace´. Maureen Faulkner, whose husband Daniel was shot by Abu-Jamal in 1981, blasted the taxpayer-funded plan, saying it advocated violence. The lesson, given to students in Oakland, California, asked them to draw a ´possible parallel´ between civil rights activist King, and ´someone else many believe is currently targeted by the U.S. government, Mumia Abu-Jamal.´ Speaking to Fox News, Maureen said: ´It’s a travesty.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House, is guilty of encouraging her members to wage an ugly race war, but it won’t work. Sadly, it has come down to this. When they assumed power in 2009, Democrats promised that a trillion dollar stimulus package would invigorate the economy and create millions of jobs. It did not happen—all while trillions of dollars were added to the national debt which will become due when these current lawmakers are safely in retirement. The president of the United States and congressional Democrats promised that if they passed Obamacare, you could keep your doctor and

The worst amendment to the Constitution is also one of the vaguest. The right to keep and bear arms might be simplistic, but at least it is direct. Our first amendment is mildly long winded and grotesquely misunderstood. However, the 16th amendment, ratified in 1913, stands as one of the most viscous deteriorations of the American Experiment. Stating simply “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration” the amendment grants to the Federal government powers typically reserved for

Vladimir Putin’s tactics in both Crimea and now Eastern Ukraine seem transparent to the western media. Using tactics designed to “protect” its citizens, Russia annexed Crimea. Georgia fell to a similar fate when George Bush was president. Now “protests” are being fomented in eastern Ukraine while troops mass at the border. The Russians advertise this as “defensive measures.” Hitler used similar tactics when he invaded the ethnically German Sudetenland in the lead-up to World War II. In Putin’s case, the tactics involve trumped up protests by Russian loyalists apparently shipped in to protest for this very purpose, troops massed at the

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
