‘The bear is loose’: Is Obama
breaking free or running away?

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/10/2014 10:26:45 PM

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

Given what has been seen of the coward. It is believed he is running as fast as his skinny black legs can carry him, slowed only by all the poop he has on his tricycle wheels.

Transplantation? Is it Barry Soetoro or is it Barry Durham or is it really the ridiculous Barack Hussein Obama? Whatever, the man is stupid. As in dumb as a stone. I am very sure his IQ is maybe 80-90. So that begs the question. Who is running the show? I suspect there are 3,4 or maybe 5 people in "charge". And that means no one is in charge and this is what we get.

If he wants his freedom so badly,I have a suggestion:
He can resign now rather than later. But, I am sure Michelle won´t let him; they have a few more million dollar vacations to go on starting with the one in August.

He looks like a complete fool - giving himself silly nicknames and running around the country playing games. Then he has another staged photo-op just hours after decrying the practice.

There are four varieties of the creature we call "Democrat". They are:

The Foolish Fool
The Foolish Knave
The Knavish Fool
The Knavish Knave

Despite his all efforts to appear to be in the first three, Lightbringer´s behavior places him squarely in the fourth category.

This hilarious nugget from one of his paid liar/apologists, Alteredman: “In a world where it’s not yet clear what’s really important, and there’s no real consensus on what’s really important,” he said, “it’s hard for the president to calibrate exactly where to engage.” Yeah, national security, national sovereignty, foreign policy,the economy, citizen health and safety....yeah, there´s no consensus these are important.

I live on a small farm so we occasionally see a mouse in our home, which is then dispatched by our cats. Zippy reminds me of the mouse, scurrying anywhere and everywhere desperately trying to get away from the cat. The cat in this case is a combination of Mooch, his job and his long list of disasters.

Obama has been forced, unwillingly, to spend an inordinate concentrated amount of time with the hoi polloi (´ordinary Americans´ to use Bill Clinton and other self-regarding elitists´ phrase).

Unfortunately for him and his handlers, the people have seen more of him in a few days than they have for the previous few months combined.

His behavior, as well as his decision-making, is not just odd - it´s bizarre. And there is a quickly-growing school of thought that this president is on heavy psychotropic drugs. The constant, inappropriate smiling and nervous laughter are signs of potent doses of antidepressants which, whatever their medicinal properties, also make the user high.

Simply put, we have a madman in charge.

"Breaking free" and "running away" make sense, but I prefer the terms escape and avoidance. Mr. Obama appears to "solve problems" by avoiding them (voting "present" in Illinois, for example) or by escaping to neighborhood settings, where he shines and feels quite comfortable.

He would have made a great community leader had he remained in his element. Not so at the national and international level.

What is a common tactic of spouses when a marriage is unraveling? Staying gone, out of town for long periods time, frequently.

If that stupid loser does not know what the important issues are in the world, someone should sit him down and try to explain.

It appears he´s coming unglued. His brain is thumping like a toad. Perhaps he has a kind of Tinnitus, that worsens when he is DC.

Maybe any medical records, MRI´s, etc of him will be as highly sought after in the future for analysis, as were pieces of Hitler´s skull. He is one bizarre chap.

#2 and #6, could you have meant "Transformation?" I believe your post was trying to show how many times Barack/Barry has transformed his name throughout the years. He is one confused little fella.

I believe that his mother´s maiden name was Dunham not Durham. I have to admit, though, Barry is more like the movie minor-league baseball team Durham Bulls in Bull Durham than like a major league President.

Even though it´s two different sports, Barack can´t hold a candle to Ronald Reagan who portrayed the great Knute Rockne very convincingly.

The following statement is other-worldly:

Senior White House officials say they cannot tear up the president’s schedule every time a domestic or international crisis erupts,...

So the President´s photo op schedule takes precedence over domestic and international crises? Is that his priority? What does that say about his concern for Americans and American interests?

Never did a POTUS have such a skewed view of what it means to be an American, let alone an American President. Everything revolves around what he finds most appealing, least labor-intensive, and softer strokes for his ego.

If a domestic crisis such as our illegal border immigration situation, complete with the probable spread of diseases, isn´t worthy of a trip to personally scope it out, what is? A beer and tea photo op at a friendly local eatery?

If the crisis in Israel and Gaza isn´t worth more than the puerile "We urge caution" pap, what does POTUS actually focus on?

He seems to have a visceral aversion to anything that would, as Boehner noted, cause him to make hard decisions.
He is also averse to appearances where he could face tough questions that were not screened in advance.
He is averse to work and desperately tries to get the media to portray his goofing off as work by saying such things as "he´s been briefed" or some such crap. He hasn´t attended his daily briefings because they require thought and decisions.

The man isn´t a "bear" at all. He is a craven, slithering malingerer, afraid of anything that could shatter his glass ego.

Isn´t it about time people who would ordinarily make honorable decisions in their personal lives stop protecting this troll?

Libya now nation at risk
with weak U.S. influence
Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang and Jacqueline Klimas    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/27/2014 10:58:36 PM     Post Reply
With violence spreading across Libya and the U.S. Embassy closing in Tripoli, Republican lawmakers over the weekend blasted the Obama administration for failing to stop yet another troubled Middle Eastern nation from descending into complete chaos, and even some Democrats conceded that America’s influence in the world has waned considerably. Two warring factions have turned Libya again into one of the most dangerous spots on Earth, and the country — in flux since the U.S.-backed overthrow and subsequent death of dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011 — is not safe for Western diplomats. The State Department announced Saturday that it was

GAZIANTEP, Turkey — A U.S.-backed effort to arm the moderate Syrian opposition is finally ramping up along the Turkey-Syria border, but it may come too late to save the rebels from defeats on two fronts, by President Bashar al-Assad’s government and by the extremists seeking to carve out an Islamic state. Spurred by concerns that the al-Qaeda-inspired radicals will continue their relentless march across Iraq and Syria, the United States and its allies have begun accelerating the supply of arms and ammunition to a small number of vetted rebel groups in northern Syria, according to diplomats and rebels who have

GAZA CITY — The conflict in Gaza raged on Sunday, even as both Israel and Hamas offered brief truces and President Obama pressed Israel for an “immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire,” reflecting growing concern over the rising death toll. Israel denied Sunday that it was responsible for one of the most shocking attacks in the 20-day conflict, saying its soldiers were not behind the deaths of 16 Palestinians killed by shelling three days earlier as they sought refuge in a U.N. school near an area of intense fighting. Israel’s military, however, offered no details about what it called a “comprehensive inquiry”

Half a year ago, I was not even considering becoming president of Ukraine. But like a great many Ukrainians at the time, I was disturbed that then-president Viktor Yanukovych constrained Ukraine’s future by rejecting an association agreement with the European Union, choosing a customs union with Moscow instead.

JERUSALEM —Large Palestinian protests against Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip spread across the West Bank on Friday, as U.S.-led talks to secure a lasting truce sputtered while Gaza residents awaited a possible lull in fighting. In Cairo, Secretary of State John F. Kerry said Friday that his efforts to reach a week-long cease-fire in the Gaza Strip fell short. But as condemnation against the Israeli rejection of Kerry’s terms rose, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to a 12-hour “humanitarian pause” in the fighting, to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday. Hamas, the militant group that controls Gaza, announced early Saturday

Obama Rejects Kurds´
Plea for Help Against ISIS

President Obama famously failed to act when warned that ISIS was preparing to mount an offensive in Western Iraq. This left ISIS free to conquer, with virtually no resistance, city after city in the defense of which American soldiers have shed blood. Now Obama is receiving new warnings, this time from the Kurds in Northern Iraq. In fact, according to the Washington Post, the Kurds are “pleading for U.S. military aid.” Unlike the Iraqi government, the Kurds possess a viable military that is prepared to fight ISIS. Indeed, they are fighting ISIS, and fairly effectively. However, the Kurds now have

Amidst news the Israelis have turned down secretary of State Kerry’s latest, apparently Qatar-inspired, ceasefire, not to mention the other day’s nauseatingly familiar anti-Israel fusillade from the mega-Orwellian UN Human Rights Council, comes word that Hamas had been planning a gigantic attack on Israel this September via its dozens of tunnels. From the Gatestone Institute: Hamas had apparently been preparing a murderous assault on Israeli civilian targets for the coming Jewish New Year Holiday, Rosh Hashanah, which begins on September 24, according anonymous sources in the Israeli security services, as reported today

First lady Michelle Obama on Thursday night urged Democrats to “dig deep” into their pockets and “write a big fat check” before the midterm elections, but minutes later complained of too much money in politics. Speaking at a party fundraiser in Chicago, Mrs. Obama said Democrats must triumph in the November contests if President Obama is to make progress on his agenda during the final two years of his term. She also blasted special interest groups that funnel money to Republicans. “So, yeah, there’s too much money in politics. There’s special interests that have too much influence. But they had

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

Don’t be so sure that the Supreme Court is going to save Obamacare. Again. The question is enormously important: Are health-care consumers entitled to subsidies if they buy coverage on insurance exchanges established by the federal government, as they are with insurance from state exchanges? Two federal appeals courts have reached contradictory conclusions, at least so far. (The Obama administration plans to ask the full federal appeals court in Washington to review the three-judge panel ruling against the subsidies, and that court is newly stocked with liberals.) Cases are headed to two other appeals courts. Which adds up to:

The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television. The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel. The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” that Kerry’s ceasefire proposal, which contained

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Fusion TV´s Jorge Ramos that part of the reason Hamas hides rockets in schools and civilian areas is "Gaza is small." "I´m not a military planner but Hamas puts it´s missiles, it´s rockets in civilian areas, part of it is Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated," she said as neglecting the question of whether or not Hamas should have rockets in area to begin with.

Sunday on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her "proud to be an American." Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama´s current lack of direction in world leadership. "We have to go back out and sell ourselves," Clinton said. "It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers. But when it comes to smoking dope, the mind

In 2012, four years after sort-of-stumping-but-not-really for her mother’s presidential campaign, Chelsea Clinton sat down for a lengthy, laudatory profile for Vogue. “Historically, I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye,” she said. “And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life.” Last April, Clinton told Fast Company magazine much the same thing. As she also did with NBC’s Brian Williams, who interviewed Clinton after she was hired by the network as a “special correspondent” — albeit one with no journalism experience. Her starting salary: $600,000 a year. “For most of my life I did deliberately

The Road to Hell Obama is taking the

The Catholic Church—through the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration—both paved the road for Barack Hussein Obama’s ultimate takeover of Free West society and continues to actively enable the Fundamental Transformation of America by sinking the US in a tsunami of illegal aliens. In coming to Obama’s aid in erasing forever America’s borders, the bishops sold the USA out, including its Catholics, for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver. In biblical terms, Obama and the Catholic bishops—who both birthed his progress to the seat of power and back him on his Fundamental Transformation mission—are in in league with the devil.

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California

GAZA CITY — The conflict in Gaza raged on Sunday, even as both Israel and Hamas offered brief truces and President Obama pressed Israel for an “immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire,” reflecting growing concern over the rising death toll. Israel denied Sunday that it was responsible for one of the most shocking attacks in the 20-day conflict, saying its soldiers were not behind the deaths of 16 Palestinians killed by shelling three days earlier as they sought refuge in a U.N. school near an area of intense fighting. Israel’s military, however, offered no details about what it called a “comprehensive inquiry”
