The Consequences of Obama´s
Likely Loss on Syria

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/8/2013 11:03:52 AM

As the vote to authorize a U.S. attack on Syria nears this week, President Barack Obama is preparing to grant six interviews on Monday, and to address the nation on Tuesday. But the opposition is growing in strength and has the upper hand. The debate itself, brought about by Obama´s decision first to ignore Congress, then to reverse himself, has already damaged his stature. A "no" vote will have even more far-reaching effects. One effect will be to punish Obama for once leading the anti-war movement as U.S. troops were fighting difficult battles in Iraq. After all, Congress will merely

Good time to point out the actions approved by Obama that has weakened America. No to pipeline, High regulations on energy. Open borders policy. Relocating thousands of Syrians to America. Secret meetings with CAIR. Taking our guns away. Leaving 4 men to die in Benghazi. All the horrible things he has done to our men and women serving our country. Come on L-dotters I know you can add to this list.

There is a clear case to be made for Obama to resign the Presidency. Can we afford 3 more years of this decline and destruction?

There will be NO consequences for Obama. The media will see to that. But the consequences for our country will be terrible.

Let us also remember the Chicago Olympics that the Emperor and his wife lobbied for. /s Following his "success" at the G20, his lobbying effectiveness actually gives me hope - that we will stay out of Syria.

Bargain with him. Oh Right, he LIES and will break any and all promises. Try anyway...if he resigns immediately, repeals all his idiotic laws, pays back the billions of OUR DOLLARS that he has so freely given to his kommie kronies, kicks his freeloading aunt back to Kenya, kicks out his lawless dreamers, and apologies big time to WTP, with visits to a CHRISTIAN church every Sunday for the next three years, tapes his partner´s mouth shut, and chains his family at home with no vacatiotime....then we MIGHT be on the road to talking and compromise. Till then, no dice, bro.

Seemingly being embarrassed by Congress voting him down on Syria will not mean anything to Obama, as from now on he will simply try to put the blame on the Republicans, disregarding the fact that the vast majority of Americans do not want to get involved in the Syrian civil war by commencing US military action.

After the UK Parliament voted David Cameron down on this issue, he is still up and walking, politically speaking.

Guiding the illiterati in slums to the path of being good little America-hating socialists is time consuming, so BO the one-trick pony cannot be slighted for taking days, weeks maybe decades to come to a decision on helping his Al-Q friends.

Maybe it´s time to rename the Peter Principal after the Great One.

I can almost see a scenerio where "tea party extremists" in the House block Obama from this and within another couple weeks another surprise gas attack happens and Obama says he wanted to do something and congress blocked him.There´s nothing Obama does that´s not politically motivated.

I think one of the reasons Mcain lost in 2008 was people thought he´d start a war with Iran.So Obama was a peacenik at the time and told that audience stooge that he´d have open talks with Iran,Cuba NK etc.

Now Obama could very well use Iran as a prop to get backing for this attack.

I have to laugh at the last paragraph about possible domestic benefits. BO will never feel chastened or shamed. He will, as he has so often in the past, blame others. He was in full form in Europe declining his responsibility for drawing a red line. "THEY did it, not me!" A loss on the Syrian vote will also be blamed on others. That´s why he went to Congress for a vote. It doesn´t matter if his defeat was perfectly justified, in his mind it will be Congress´ fault. His advisors will reinforce that and the media will provide backup. Since the public doesn´t want action in the first place, BO will get a pass for no action.

A LEADER would see the long term ill effects of this path but BO is incapable of seeing this. That is why he is in the mess to begin with. The public is too dense to see how one thing leads inevitably to another and link BO´s inept presidency to the world meltdown and the stagnant economy.

Don´t expect any change in behavior from this president. He is too incompetent for self reflection and self improvement.

Washington Post, by Michael S. Rosenwald    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/18/2014 10:15:52 PM     Post Reply
One of California’s largest firearm stores recently added a peculiar new gun to its shelves. It requires an accessory: a black waterproof watch. The watch’s primary purpose is not to provide accurate time, though it does. The watch makes the gun think. Electronic chips inside the gun and the watch communicate with each other. If the watch is within close reach of the gun, a light on the grip turns green. Fire away. No watch means no green light. The gun becomes a paperweight. A dream of gun-control advocates for decades, the Armatix iP1 is the country’s first smart gun.

The Department of Homeland Security wants a private company to provide a national license-plate tracking system that would give the agency access to vast amounts of information from commercial and law enforcement tag readers, according to a government proposal that does not specify what privacy safeguards would be put in place. The national license-plate recognition database service, which would draw data from readers that scan the tag of every vehicle crossing their paths, would help catch fugitive illegal immigrants, according to a DHS solicitation. But the database could easily contain more than 1 billion records and may be shared with

Deadly clashes between protesters and police in Kiev on Tuesday led to a fire-lit nighttime assault by Interior Ministry troops on the main protest encampment at Independence Square, in what may be a dramatic and irreversible turn in Ukraine’s months-long political crisis. After weeks of relative calm, trucks and tents burned, molotov cocktails smashed against police shields and banners illuminated by the flames whipped in the strong breeze. At least 20 people were reported killed in the latest flare-up of protests that began last fall after President Viktor Yanukovych rejected a trade deal with Europe and turned to Russia for

Student debt may hurt housing recovery
by hampering first-time buyers

The growing student loan burden carried by millions of Americans threatens to undermine the housing recovery’s momentum by discouraging, or even blocking, a generation of potential buyers from purchasing their first homes. Recent improvements in the housing market have been fueled largely by investors who snapped up homes in the past few years. But that demand is waning as prices climb and mortgage rates rise. An analysis by the Mortgage Bankers Association found that loan applications for home purchases have slipped nearly 20 percent in the past four months compared with the same period a year earlier.

After a tumultuous week of party infighting and leadership stumbles, congressional Republicans are focused on calming their divided ranks in the months ahead, mostly by touting proposals that have wide backing within the GOP and shelving any big-ticket legislation for the rest of the year. Comprehensive immigration reform, tax reform, tweaks to the federal health-care law — bipartisan deals on each are probably dead in the water for the rest of this Congress. “We don’t have 218 votes in the House for the big issues, so what else are we going to do?” said Rep.

Increasing Anti-deportation protests show

Immigrant rights activists, including some self-identified illegal immigrants, were arrested outside the White House on Monday as part of a protest against President Obama’s deportation policies, signaling that even as Republicans take blame for halting legalization legislation, Democrats face political peril, too. Mr. Obama was out of town, playing golf in California, so he wasn’t at the White House during the protests outside the North Lawn, on the sidewalk along Pennsylvania Avenue. With action on immigration stalled in Congress, attention is turning back to the administration. Activists say Mr. Obama needs to expand

Austin - Democrats fired Monday on Attorney General Greg Abbott´s decision to have Ted Nugent at campaign events, with some calling on the Republican candidate for governor to cancel the appearances. The pair is expected in Denton and Wichita Falls on Tuesday. Critics are showcasing incendiary comments the rocker and gun-rights advocate has made about President Barack Obama and women officeholders including Hillary Clinton, and his startling proposals for immigrants who come here illegally. “Ted Nugent disrespects a large number of Texans.

The hot lap at Daytona was set by the pace car. The latest quirky occurrence at the home of the Daytona 500 came Saturday night when there was a fire inside the pace car for the exhibition Sprint Unlimited. The smoke billowing from the car might have seemed out of place at any other track. At Daytona? It seemed more a matter of when the latest track mishap would happen, not if. After all, the 2010 Daytona 500 was interrupted for more than two hours because of a pothole in the track. Juan Pablo Montoya slammed into a jet dryer in

With three years remaining in the presidency of Barack Obama, the party he has led since mesmerizing members with his 2008 campaign has begun debating a post-Obama future. Though more united than Republicans, Democrats nevertheless face simmering tensions between the establishment and a newly energized populist wing, led by the unabashed liberalism of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and the fiery rhetoric of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The schisms are as much stylistic as substantive. But however defined, they offer a challenge to the party’s next leader, whether former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden

What Happened to the Antiwar Movement?

Barack Obama owes his presidency largely to the Iraq war. It was Obama’s purity on the war–he opposed it when Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and others were voting for it–that endeared him to the Democratic Party’s base. Indeed, one could say that the contemporary American Left owes its vigor, if not its existence, to the Iraq war. Those who lived through the years from 2003 to 2008 won’t forget it–the online hysteria, the demonstrations, the wild charges, the assassination fantasies, the calls for impeachment. Remember when antiwar demonstrations could bring out enough people to fill the streets? This was Washington,

   

 



 
Obama taunts ‘scared’ Republicans,
says immigration reform is a priority

President Obama told House Democrats Friday that comprehensive immigration reform remains a top priority for this year in spite of Republican lawmakers who are “scared” of the political consequences. “They’re worried and they’re scared about the political blowback,” Mr. Obama said of the GOP. “We can all appreciate the maneuverings that take place, particularly in an election year.” Speaker John A. Boehner has said that the House probably won’t approve comprehensive immigration reform this year because Republicans don’t trust Mr. Obama to improve border security. At the Democrats’ annual retreat in Cambridge, Md., Mr. Obama said he doesn’t want to

CAMBRIDGE, Md. — It had been a good week — a very good week — for Nancy Pelosi. So good, in fact, that she and her leadership team felt the need to caution their House Democratic troops not to gloat over the fact that they had scored a clean win against the majority Republicans over raising the debt ceiling. But as the House Democrats met for their annual retreat in this Eastern Shore town, there was one subject the minority leader appeared determined to avoid: her grim prospects for regaining the speaker’s gavel in this year’s midterm elections. “That’s not

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that.

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record. "I don´t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president,” Romney said on NBC´s “Meet the Press,” adding that the former first lady “has her own record and her own vision."

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House.

President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock.
