Obama puts politics
over morals in abdicating
presidential authority in Syria

New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/1/2013 8:55:57 AM

As the scheduled time for President Obama’s address on Syria came and went yesterday, reporters in the Rose Garden could see him through the Oval Office windows, talking on the telephone. (Snip) Boxed in from the left and right, at home and abroad, heckled as a hypocrite and a flip-flopper, he didn’t have a single friend, let alone a coalition. So he kicked the can to Congress and challenged its members to make the unpopular decision he’s not willing to make as commander in chief. The 11th-hour reversal is a Gilda Radner moment — “Never mind!” She did it as comedy; Obama does it as farce.

Comments:
Has anyone yet written a strong piece "praising" 0bama´s pretzel-bending actions? Feel sorry for those in the trenches who may yet fight his "limited" war.

I´m not sorry Mr. Obama backed down. We have no business getting involved in a Civil War between two very bad players. I´m just sorry he drew his idiotic red line to begin with. I hope Congress has the good sense to keep us out of that mess.

Another vote of ´Present´ from the Waffle-in-Chief. Just addressing the nation, and telling us that Syria isn´t our business would at least made him look a tiny bit Presidential.

Instead, he´s sent Jon Kary, who served in Vietnam, out to do the dirty work...

Obama watched Americans slaughtered in Benghazi and did nothing.

What´s the rush with Syria? We don´t even know who "did it." Killing more people won´t solve anything.

I just want to point out the photo of capt. Zero on drudge with his ugly foot on the desk that belongs to the American people. Why is that necessary????? That shows about the safe respect as he has for this country. NONE! He has done this type of ill respect ever since he slithered into the whitehouse. Feckless, to say the least!!!!!!!

Even more offensive is O´s brag that we knew three days before Syria used chemical weapons that they were planning to deploy those weapons.

The evil unleashed by this administration is beyond comprehension.

"Basher" Assad saw a thread end on Bambi´s battle jacket, so he grabbed it and pulled. Our little boy president unraveled like a cheap ROC sweater. What´s with Jn´K, did Susan or Samantha say no? At the current rate of mistakes, Obama´s going to run out of apologists before he runs out of second term and the spin cycle on the DNC whitewash machine will burn out an axle rod bearing.

Morals have been off the menu at the WH for a long time.

Under previous Presidents they were sometimes served diced and half-baked. But Obama banned them in any form. Probably by some Double Secret Executive Order.

In May 2012, the law school at George Mason University hosted a forum billed as a “vibrant discussion” about Internet search competition. Many of the major players in the field were there — regulators from the Federal Trade Commission, federal and state prosecutors, top congressional staffers. What the guests had not been told was that the day-long academic conference was in large part the work of Google, which maneuvered behind the scenes with GMU’s Law & Economics Center to put on the event. At the time, the company was under FTC investigation over concerns about the dominance of its famed search engine,

On Nov. 1, 1950, with the White House undergoing renovations, President Harry Truman was napping upstairs at Blair House, the guest house across the street. At 2:15 p.m., as he slept, “two Puerto Rican nationalists, 37-year-old Oscar Collazo and 24-year-old Griselio Torresola, approached Blair House from opposite directions . . . Collazo was armed with a Walther P-38 and Torresola with a Luger, both 9 mm pistols.” (Snip) (While threats against President Obama by white supremacists and other right-wing extremists shot up in his first year in office, since then, Ayton writes, the number of threats against him has fallen in line with presidential

David Cameron´s commitment to the green agenda will come under the fiercest scrutiny yet this week when top climate-change experts will warn that only greater use of renewable energy – including windfarms – can prevent a global catastrophe. A report by the world´s leading authorities will expose a growing gulf between a Tory party intent on halting construction of more onshore windfarms and the world´s leading scientists, who see them as one of the cheapest ways to provide energy while at the same time saving the environment.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Chicago - A magnitude 7.6 earthquake struck near the Solomon Islands on Sunday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. A tsunami warning was issued for the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia and surrounding areas, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. A tsunami watch was in effect for Fiji, Australia, Indonesia, Guam and nearby areas. Originally registering as magnitude 8.3, the quake was 60 miles (100 km) south of Kira Kira in the Solomon Islands at a depth of 18 miles (29 km), according to USGS.

Crimea is now part of Russia, according to the Russian version of Google’s map service. The change was made to reflect in the latest update and did not affect how the online giant presents the peninsula to the rest of the world. “The Google Maps team is doing its best to objectively mark disputed regions and landmarks. In relevant cases the borders of disputed areas are marked in a special way. In countries where we have a localized version of our service, we follow local laws on representing borders and use of landmark names,” Svetlana Anurova of Google Russia told ITAR-TASS.

Pretoria, South Africa - Oscar Pistorius spent much of last week on the stand detailing for the court what happened the night he shot and killed his lover Reeva Steenkamp. His version was repeatedly challenged by prosecutor Gerrie Nel who called it “improbable” and a “lie.” Pistorius’ credibility will likely play a key part when Judge Thokozile Masipa forms her verdict. If convicted of murder, Pistorius could be sentenced to at least 25 years in prison. Here is how Pistorius claims he came to kill his girlfriend in the predawn hours of Valentine’s Day 2013: Pistorius and Steenkamp went to bed about 10 p.m.

I am not “anti-vaccine.” This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, “pro-vaccine” and for years I have been wrongly branded as “anti-vaccine.” My beautiful son, Evan, inspired this mother to question the “one size fits all” philosophy of the recommended vaccine schedule. I embarked on this quest not only for myself and my family, but for countless parents who shared my desire for knowledge that could lead to options and alternate schedules, but never to eliminate the vaccines.

The final evening of Jack Chen’s life was indistinguishable from many others. The sophomore returned home from school, ate dinner with his mother and retired to his room. His mother asked him to turn out his light at midnight. (Snip) His death is one of six apparent suicides at Fairfax’s W.T. Woodson High School during the past three years, including another student found dead the next day. The toll has left the school community reeling and prompted an urgent question: Why would so many teens from a single suburban school take their lives? County officials say they do not believe the deaths are directly connected, and experts say that

The threat from the cybervulnerability dubbed Heartbleed reaches well beyond Web businesses and social networks into the industrial systems that power the US economy, apparently including those used to operate the US power grid. Unconfirmed reports that Heartbleed has already been used to attack encrypted communications systems of US industrial control systems are being investigated, the US Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) announced in an alert Friday. “ICS-CERT is aware of reports of attempted exploitation and is in the process

New York - Iran has no plans to name a new diplomat to the United Nations, its foreign ministry said on Saturday, after the US blocked its pick in a rare rebuke that could stir fresh animosity at a time when the two countries have been seeking a thaw in relations. The Obama administration said on Friday the US had informed Iran it would not grant a visa to Hamid Aboutalebi, a member of the group responsible for the 1979 takeover of the US embassy in Tehran. While US officials had been trying to persuade Iran to simply withdraw Aboutalebi´s name, the announcement amounted to an acknowledgement that those efforts had not been

A Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe some 60 feet toward Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared aware during questioning by U.S. Secret Service agents of the allegation against her, authorities said Friday. Alison Michelle Ernst, 36, was given a misdemeanor disorderly conduct summons and freed after she was booked at the Clark County jail, according to a Las Vegas police arrest report. She is accused of bypassing security and walking quickly toward a rope line about six rows from the front of a conference audience. Police say she reached into a purse, removed the shoe and threw it overhand toward the stage.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013.

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment
