Operation Cockamamie:
The Damascus Follies

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/8/2013 5:10:52 AM

Looking over the week´s crazy developments, I can see only one coherent strand in Obama´s foreign policy. He wants to make sure that John Kerry and Hillary Clinton will never be elected president. After sacrificing Hillary´s career on the blood-streaked walls of Benghazi he had Kerry appear before the Congress and take positions utterly at odds with those he´s taken all his life, supplied him with information disputed by other members of the administration, and had him make indefensible statements without any evidentiary support at all. By way of example, Kerry asserted that the chemical weapons case against Syria was

"There should be a vote, and I agree with Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit that the Republicans should refuse to vote at all until after all the Democrats have voted"
Now THAT would make my day! Just to see them squirming in their seats, beads of sweat running down their foreheads. Of course, Boner won´t allow that...after all, he doesn´t want to offend the guy he plays golf and smokes cigarettes with during off hours.

MUST READ! Then copy and send to all. This "exercise" in stupidity should go down in the history books as one to study for things not to do. Someone should remind Obama that the captain goes down with the ship.

Go ahead and make fun of Obama. If we would be honest with ourselves, he is quite creative. When I think he can´t possibly do anything worse, he finds ways to prove me profoundly wrong. I wonder what stunning performances await us over the next three years.

It is indeed ´party over sanity.´ Let us not worry about saving face for this disaster of a president. Not voting isn´t exactly going to do it anyway. The world has his number even if many of our people haven´t.

And, let us be a tad honest, not voting keeps the non voters from having a record of their stance from their constituents.

FTA: "By way of example, Kerry asserted that the chemical weapons case against Syria was "undeniable." At the same time, the administration offered up a contradictory assessment that "U.S. intelligence has concluded ´with some degree of varying confidence´ that the Syrian government has twice used chemical weapons."

This is the consequence of spending a lifetime twisting yourself into knots, lying to people. You forget that words have meaning.

This is the consequence of twisting yourself into knots coming up with phrases like, "man caused disaster" to keep from calling a terrorist attack a terrorist attack.

Both consider themselves American royalty and to have to kow-tow to you-no-who. It must be a delcious sight if one were a fly on the bedroom chandelier after their work day of public service.

Clarice is thoroughly articulate on Obama’s latest … the Syria charade (a great way to cover up Benghazi!). The good news: now the whole world can see what an irresponsible puppet idiot we suffer impersonating the presidency. Only a no credentials imposter can be this stupid and dangerous. This Seaman Apprentice is not qualified to Captain the USS America. He has no papers, no proof even of who the hell he is. Time to re-open the birth certificate fraud that is being withheld from us by all the TV Diane Sawyers and NYTimes press censoring, controlling non communicators. He needs to be arrested for treasonous forgery, nothing else will do.

Articles written by people like Clarice who explain why Obama is in over his head, rings a bell with people like us who normally read and try to digest articles that explain current events. Most people live their lives and try to survive in an increasingly complicated world. We need the Clarice´s of this world.

This might be a reach, but isn´t this similar to Nazi Germany pre WW2. We daily get bombarded by propaganda from controlled leftist news services who invent one catastrophe after another. This is done to stir your emotions against straw men they invent.

The first thing you need to succeed in a campaign of this sort is a target. Hence the organized campaign against the majority in this country based upon race. That alone keeps his base in line along with fellow travelers.

Hitler used the same tactics, constantly blaming the Jews and everyone else who opposed him. Not that the Jews were a majority, they were just very convenient. They still are today in Obamas Muslim world. Hillary, Kerry and the rest of his toy soldiers haven´t the sense to realize how they are being used. The end of each chapter in his bumbling books always favor Muslim rebels or Terrorists. The end justifies the means. So we creep to the edge of war.

On the other hand I could be wrong, but I don´t think so.

And Boehner better not fold and refuse to have House vote to protect Barry´s credibility.
The American people deserve to know which members of Congress are willing to follow this
blood thirsty whack job..and that would be Obama and not Ahmadinejad or Assad..into this disaster.
FTA- " ..the House may not take a vote if it appears that the effort is failing.
This, in my opinion, is stupid.
There should be a vote, and I agree with Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit that the Republicans should refuse to vote at all until after all the Democrats have voted.
Let those putting party above sanity take the fall in their districts for supporting
this cockamamie operation and chief."

The argument to attack Assad to intimidate Iran is null. Obama had Iran between Iraq and Afghanistan after having them handed to him in 2009 and then ignored Iran´s own Persian Spring while handing Iraq back to sectarian violence in Iraq and Afghanistan back to the Talibn, Egypt to the Muslim Brotherhood and Libya Islamic chaos. His doing the same to Syria without consent of the people or international cooperation isn´t going to be interpreted as "whatever it takes." It will destroy Obama though - which is probably better sooner rather than later.

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

"Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

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. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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.

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not
