Inside the Beltway:
White House grade slips to ‘F’

Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/13/2014 7:59:09 PM

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many

An "F" to me by 0bama means the American people are "screwed."

These are historic times. I spend most of my waking hours in a frightful and dreadful awe of what may soon befall us because of our President´s wickedness. Obama and Holder seem to be the kind of men that would shake their fists at God.

An F? I think the Lord might give him an "H".

I´m sorry but it´s way too late for such ´school house´ antics. This president has been pretty up front as to his intention to obliterate this country as we know it. The media has aided and abetted him, and are just now having 2nd thoughts about him? Our country is moving ever closer to confrontation and conflict...way passed time for passing out grades and running opinion polls.

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Any sentient human knows that no Leftist could ever take this oath and actually mean it. Any Leftist who takes this oath is a brazen liar, and everyone knows it.

So, hopefully, historians will not just be grading Obama on an A-F scale, but explaining why he was never eligible for the office in the first place.

People who criticize Obama for his many failures and then his ability to blithely go on his merry way and play golf without any sense that it could send the wrong message just don´t get it. Obama is PROUD of what he has accomplished. He is a happy man because he is winning! Who has even come close to stopping his unbridled destruction of this country? Who holds him accountable? While the Republicans file lawsuits and hold meaningless investigations, Obama is busily doing exactly what he said he would do, fundamentally transforming this country. If that is the test Obama is being measured by, then baby, he acing it!!!

All here on this site are correct but the real slap in the face will be the discovery of his origin of birth, his real religion, his grades and his sponsorship as a foreign student along with made up SS# with the out and out criminal fraud perpertrated on America. It will be discovered after he is out of office. Rage will follow that we and our nation were destroyed by this fraudulent, America hating, communist, muslim person.

Doesnt matter what grade he earns or what his poll numbers are. He isnt on the 2016 ballot and he will continue to occupy the Oval Office for another 30 months.

So long as there are 34 democrats in the senate, any chance of removing him from office is non-existant. In fact, the only way that he is "removed" from office is if the military decides to protect the constitution from enemies foreign and "domestic" Another unlikely scenario considering that Obama has been running our the senior military officers and appointing his own.

Worse than that is the question of Obama´s mental state. He´s been much more passive/aggressive than usual lately. His speeches are rambling, incoherent and filled with invective sniping.

He has pulled off of the world stage completely and has focused only on fundraising and calling Republicans names.

And what is with this "the bear is loose" stuff? Something is not right.

While I am skeptical that enough Senators could find their "courage" to follow the Constitution by convicting Barry once the House would file Articles of Impeachment, I do believe that lady Truth will eventually reveal herself.

Thank you, #14, for listing the mysterious details to which voters should be entitled for any candidate for office paid for by our taxes. There are some things, yes, that a politician doesn´t need to reveal about himself/herself, but one´s origin of birth and one´s grades in all schools attended, are not in that "private" category, especially since the Constitution requires origin of birth.

Meanwhile the plan to destroy the country from within is at warp speed ahead of the mid term elections. When all of the pink slips on the front lines meets another crisis. And the diseases streaming across the border and being transported nationwide meets the obamacare stresses medical system, and Russia and China build their arsenal and plot to destroy the dollar while supplying Hamas with bombs. Now holder sneaks out of his hole to claim racism . Oh happy Monday folks.

A freind of our family had a son in highschool who was absolutely disinterested in academic persuits. The boy refused to do any homework, worked on cars and motorcycles all day, skipped classes, He was not rude to teachers or school authorities, he was just in another world. One day he brought home a report card...all "F"- and his parents and teachers were simply at a loss on what to do with him. "F" meant absolutely nothing to this kid.

I think our so-called President is in the same mind set. A poor rating means nothing to him. He has us by the short hairs and knows there is nothing we can really do but let his time in office run out. Unfortunately, our time is running out as a free nation, too.

All we can do is shake our heads in shame and say, "My God! What have we done?"

As pointed out already, we cannot expect the military to rise up and protect this country by taking control of the government. The only other choice we have is to have enough citizens rise up and fully exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. It´s times like this that the founders put the amendment in the Constitution in the first place. And if we don´t have us another little revolution, then we deserve that which is being forced on us by what in reality is a small number of persons that crave the power to run thing their way. I´m ready to join. Are you?

A patient at the Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center who was potentially exposed to the Ebola virus has tested negative, hospital officials confirmed Thursday night. The unidentified patient was being cared for in a specially equipped negative pressure room while tests were ongoing, officials said. It is unclear when the patient arrived at the facility or when the possible exposure to the virus occurred, but it did happen in West Africa, officials said. No specific information about the patient, including the name or gender, has been released. Kaiser was working with the Sacramento County Division of Public Health

Sunni radicals fighting on behalf of the Islamic State in Iraq have been on the receiving end of at least 30 F/A-18s bombing runs that originated from the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier. Rear Adm. DeWolfe Miller, commander of Carrier Strike Group Two, told reporters by phone from the Arabian Gulf that artillery positions, convoys and other strategic targets have been destroyed by the jets, which carry GBU-54 500-pound, laser-guided bombs, the military blog Defense Tech reported Wednesday. When asked about the kind of anti-aircraft weapons that the Islamic State may have, the admiral only replied “We can handle whatever they have,”

The family of slain photojournalist James Foley received a call from Pope Francis on Thursday. Sunni radicals with the Islamic State group beheaded him on Tuesday. A spokesman for the Vatican said that the family was “deeply moved and grateful,” NBC reported. When James Foley, a Catholic who attended Marquette University, was captured by Muammar Gaddafi’s forces in 2011, he said that prayer helped him through the ordeal. In a letter he wrote to the university, he explained, “I began to pray the rosary. It was what my mother and grandmother would have prayed. I said 10 Hail Marys between each Our Father.

The Islamic State press officer who taunted the Obama administration by saying the terrorist group would “raise the flag of Allah” in the White House is now dead. Abu Mosa was killed by Syrian forces loyal to dictator Bashar Assad, whose regime also is fighting against the Islamic State, which began as part of the anti-government militia there and is accordingly also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS. “An #ISIS leader and press officer both killed in Tabqa Airbase attack in #Syria,” the State Department said Thursday via one of its Twitter accounts, @ThinkAgain_DOS, which tells “truths about terrorism” to encourage Muslims to “turn

After the killing of three of its senior commanders by Israel, Hamas vowed early Friday that it would be “strengthened” in its quest “to lift the siege on Gaza” and “liberate Jerusalem and Palestine from the neo-Nazi occupier who destroys houses and kills women and children.” Hours after the targeted strike on the Hamas commanders, Ismail Haniyeh, the former head of the Hamas regime in Gaza, released a statement that was read aloud by the Hamas television network. Haniyeh said that Hamas “was saddened over the deaths of our brothers and commanders who went on the path of great ones.”

In response to a series of scandals involving mistreatment of children under state supervision, Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed into law new rules giving county social workers access to the criminal histories of foster parents and employees at foster care contractors before abused and neglected children are placed in their care. The legislation, SB 1136, comes in response to Times reports documenting instances when children were harmed and taxpayer money was allegedly misspent by people with criminal backgrounds who had been granted special waivers from the state to receive foster children.

Charles Krauthammer said Thursday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that controversy surrounding the idea of putting American troops on the ground in Iraq is a "red herring," adding the U.S. needs to instead launch an air war against the Islamic State militants. Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and a Fox News contributor, said there is "no reason" the U.S. cannot provide air cover for the boots already on the ground helping the Peshmerga, the Kurds and the special forces of Iraq fight the terrorists. "It’s about a war on these people which doesn’t mean boots on the ground," he said.

Analysis: Israel´s killing of
senior commanders is a moral
and military blow for Hamas
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Khaled Abu Toameh    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/21/2014 7:22:57 PM     Post Reply
The assassination of three of Hamas’s most important military commanders in an Israeli air strike is the worst and most painful blow dealt to the movement’s armed wing, Izzadin Kassam, in recent years. The last time Izzadin Kassam suffered a major blow was when Israel killed its general commander, Ahmed Jabari, in November 2012. The killing of the three Hamas commanders in a pre-dawn strike on a house in Rafah came less than 48 hours after the IAF targeted a house in Gaza City where Muhammad Deif, Izzadin Kassam’s “chief of staff,” was believed to be staying together with his wife and children.

Brand new media company Time Inc. just got itself a brand new lawsuit. A former senior editor is suing People magazine, its parent company Time Inc., and her former boss Betsy Gleick for racial discrimination. Tatsha Robertson, a former Boston Globe reporter, filed the suit in Manhattan Federal Court on Wednesday. Robertson claims that she was the only black senior editor in the magazine’s history until she was laid off in May, and that only four of its “approximately” 110 employees are black. Robertson specifically named People’s executive editor Betsy Gleick in the suit, saying Gleick told her in an early performance evaluation to

Bergdahl exchange violated
federal law, legal opinion says

Washington - President Obama´s decision to exchange captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Guantanamo Bay detainees violated federal law, according to a legal opinion the Government Accountability Office sent to Congress Thursday. That´s because the administration failed to notify Congress at least 30 days before the transfer, as required under a law passed in February. The Pentagon notified Congress of the deal on May 31, the same day the transfer was made. And because Congress did not authorize spending for the exchange, it also violated the Antideficiency Act, a law intended to protect Congress´s power of the purse.

A federal judge’s "flawed" decision declaring California’s enforcement of the death penalty unconstitutional will be appealed, state Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris announced Thursday. Harris will ask the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn last month’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney, who said decades-long delays and uncertainty about whether inmates will be executed violated the Constitution’s ban on cruel or unusual punishment. Harris personally opposes the death penalty but promised voters she would enforce it. Carney’s ruling sparked national attention. He noted that more than 900 people have been

When it comes to combatting ISIS, the Obama administration has precious few successes to talk about. So today it touted a failure: U.S. Special Operations forces staged an unsuccessful operation this summer to rescue photojournalist James Foley and other Americans being held in Syria by Islamic State militants, according to senior Obama administration officials. The attempt, involving several dozen U.S. commandos, one of whom was injured in a fierce firefight with the militants, was the first known U.S. ground operation in Syria since the country’s descent into civil war. It came after at least six European hostages freed by the

Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep.

In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Ryan said he supported a "path to legalization" for all of the country´s illegal immigrants.

He had just hung up the telephone with the devastated parents before heading in front of the cameras. Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American. But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points.
