For Obama, loss of the
Senate could be freeing

Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/5/2014 12:07:38 AM

The walls seem to be closing in on the Obama presidency. Iraq and Syria are overrun with terrorists. Violence is flaring in Ukraine and on Israel’s borders. A humanitarian crisis is developing on our own southern border, but immigration legislation, like most all legislation, is moribund. Probes of the veterans’ health-care system, the IRS and Benghazi are sucking up attention and the administration’s time. As President Obama fails to get any credit for the millions who have found jobs or gained health-care coverage on his watch, a nonpartisan Quinnipiac poll this week found that 33 percent of Americans consider him

Dana must be reporting from Colorado, cause he sure sounds high in this piece of propaganda.

Does Dana understand that Obama is either the most incompetent president in history, or else he´s executing the Cloward-Piven strategy with consummate skill? Those are the two possibilities. Everything else is just injecting political noise into the public bloodstream.

Yeah, yeah, that´s the ticket... he WANTS to lose the senate.

Actually, in Obama´s twisted mind, I´ll bet he agrees with Milbank. He´s the "woe is me" president and he wants nothing more than a good excuse to do more unilateral damage to this country.

The problem with this piece rests on this phrase, "what Obama has accomplished in the last six years". That is ALMOST NOTHING.

Liberals argue both sides of an argument. They say that Congress is do nothing but that is only because Reid has blocked almost all legislation in the Senate. If Republicans win, legislation will start to flow to BO´s desk, most of it he will NOT like. He will have to veto almost everything. Who will be the obstructionist then? That´s right, STILL the dems.

Dana seems to think there is this pent up desire to support BO but that was exhausted long ago. The public no longer thinks BO can get the job done. Further, they blame him for many of the scandals coming to light. Even worse, they are starting to dislike him. He has squandered the mountain of good will he started his presidency with.

The only thing BO will be freed to do is play more golf. He is too incompetent to do anything else.

"President Obama fails to get any credit for the millions who have found jobs or gained health-care coverage on his watch."

Oh, Obama deserves lots of credit - for being the worst president in American history by far, intentionally.

Millions lose their health insurance coverage. The lowest labor-force participation rate in over forty years. The Middle East ready to explode. America mocked by Russia and China. Ukraine gobbled up by a resurgent Russia.

Obama is proud of his record. After all, he is transforming America (and the world), just as he promised.

Can´t read Dana. From the headline you would think Obama is a party of one. We will see how he likes answering to a joint senate/house committee without Harry Reid blocking the investigation.

Many think Black will protect him, I´m not so sure. Impeachment may not be such a dirty word a year from now. A some democrats will want to see him gone as much as we do.

Gridlock was the expectation of our Constitutional founders. Only when the House, the Senate, and the President are working on an issue of true national interest such as our national defense, can they be counted on to work together. When the President is working on amnesty for illegals, the House is working on reducing spending, and Harry Reid is editing all House bills to remove any section calling for fiscal restraint, our founders designed the system to lock up. Well done founders.

Replacing Harry Reid will end the editing of sections calling for fiscal restraint. It might also allow the completion of Yucca Mtn.

Fence-jumper makes it

WASHINGTON — A man jumped over the fence of the White House on Friday and made it through the front door before officers managed to apprehend him, just minutes after President Barack Obama had departed, the Secret Service said. The intruder sprinted toward the White House after leaping over the fence and ignored commands from officers to stop, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. He was ultimately apprehended just inside the North Portico doors, the grand, columned entrance that looks out over Pennsylvania Ave. Donovan said the man appeared to be unarmed to officers who spotted him jumping the fence,

HOUSTON, Texas -- On Friday Texas´ Attorney General Greg Abbott and State Senator Wendy Davis -- both gubernatorial candidates -- debated in the state´s Rio Grande Valley. During the course of the debate, the issue of education came up. After hearing what Abbott had to say, a defensive Davis spoke when she was not supposed to and even interrupted a moderator multiple times--despite being told that it was not her turn to speak. The incident began after Davis asked Abbott a question that began, "Judge Dates has recently ruled against you and in favor of the school children of Texas,

It should come as no surprise when movies dovetail with the wider social conversation. But this week, the collision is occurring with particularly crystallizing force. To wit: The arrival of a Liam Neeson movie isn’t exactly news, although his new one, “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” is notable on several counts. For one thing, it marks the return of Neeson to the kind of substantive, mature roles his fans have craved while he’s been making science-fiction fantasies and franchise installments. As New York detective Matt Scudder, Neeson settles easily into a role that calls for equal parts muscular brawn and

Interpreting the Islamic State’s jihadi logic

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

   

 



 
James Clapper: We underestimated
the Islamic State’s ‘will to fight’
Washington Post, by David Ignatius    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 9/18/2014 10:21:54 PM     Post Reply
The United States has made the same mistake in evaluating fighters from the Islamic State that it did in Vietnam — underestimating the enemy’s will, according to James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Clapper’s comments came in a telephone interview Wednesday, in which he summarized the elements of a new National Intelligence Strategy released this week. Clapper also answered some broader questions about intelligence issues confronting the country. Asked whether the intelligence community had succeeded in its goal of providing “anticipatory intelligence” about the extremist movement in Syria and Iraq that has declared itself the Islamic State, Clapper said

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year. Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go-to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight. Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.

Weeks before the State Department assured Americans that things were operating “normally” at its consulate in the Kurdish capital of Erbil in August, concerned procurement officials were quietly saying the advance of militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, meant the government needed to shell out tens of millions of dollars to counter a “rapidly deteriorating” security situation. On a no-bid basis, the State Department nearly doubled the size of a task order to defense contractor Triple Canopy, which had been hired to train Iraqi security forces but was asked to now perform diplomatic security and

Apple announced on Wednesday night that it would no longer unlock encrypted iPhones or iPads for police in many circumstances, taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user data. The move, enacted with the publication of a new privacy policy tied to the release of Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 8, amounts to an engineering solution to a legal dilemma: Rather than refuse legally binding court orders, Apple has reworked its latest encryption in a way that makes it all but impossible for

The Obama administration quietly has been forcing new gun buyers to declare their race and ethnicity, a policy change that critics say provides little law enforcement value while creating the risk of privacy intrusions and racial profiling. With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not. Then a buyer must check his or her race: Indian, Asian, black, Pacific Islander or white. The

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep.

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
