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?

European court says CIA
ran secret jail in a Polish forest
Reuters, by Christian Lowe    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/24/2014 10:12:46 AM     Post Reply
Warsaw - The CIA ran a secret jail on Polish soil, the European Court of Human Rights ruled on Thursday, piling pressure on Poland, one of Washington´s closest allies, to break its long silence about the global programme for detaining al Qaeda suspects. The court said it had been established that the CIA used a facility in a northern Polish forest, code named "Quartz", as a hub in its network for interrogating suspected al Qaeda operatives rounded up after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Poland has always denied that the CIA had a jail on its territory, even as leaks from former U.S. intelligence officials, and a Senate investigation, brought more and more

UN Human Rights Council´s
unbridled hypocrisy toward Israel
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Editorial    Original Article

The UN Human Rights Council’s ludicrous decision on Wednesday to open an international inquiry into Israeli violations that may have been committed during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza is outrageously hypocritical. This travesty of justice should be rejected outright by decent people and nations everywhere, as the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem beseeched. Instead of backing Israel’s justifiable right as a democratic state to respond forcefully to clear human rights violations by Gaza’s Hamas rulers both before and during the current military campaign, the international forum in Geneva chose to side with the terrorists.

Baghdad - Iraq’s leaders selected Fouad Massoum, a longtime Kurdish politician and former guerrilla fighter who took up arms against Saddam Hussein’s regime, on Thursday as the country’s new president, an important step in forming a new government that the international community and Iraq’s religious authorities have called for and described as crucial to confronting a growing Sunni insurgency. Mr. Massoum, 76, replaces Jalal Talabani, who has been president since 2005 and was seen as a rare unifying figure among Iraq’s many factions but has been largely absent from the political scene since suffering a stroke in late 2012.

The US national aviation authority has lifted a ban on American flights to Israel, but warned of a "very fluid situation" amid intense fighting with Palestinians in nearby Gaza, AFP reports Thursday. "The FAA has lifted its restrictions on US airline flights into and out of Israel´s Ben Gurion Airport by canceling a Notice to Airmen it renewed earlier today," (Snip) The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued its ban on Tuesday after a rocket fell on a neighborhood to the north of Ben Gurion, raising fears that a commercial flight could be struck.

The New York Police Department still can’t explain how a group of five individuals were able to hoist two white flags atop the Brooklyn Bridge, which is supposed to be heavily monitored. Police haven’t identified any of the suspects responsible or any motive behind the mysterious white flags — which would typically signal a surrender or truce — flying high atop the New York City landmark. “We’re lucky they just put a flag up there — and not a bomb,” a law enforcement source told the New York Post. “It’s an embarrassment.” Surveillance footage showed five individuals crossing the bridge about 3 a.m. Tuesday. They climbed a locked gate

Republican lawmakers said Wednesday their suspicions about Obamacare’s anti-fraud measures have been validated and it is “egregious” that 11 out of 12 government investigators were able to get subsidized Obamacare over the phone. Seth J. Bagdoyan, an acting director for forensic audits at the Government Accountability Office, told the House Ways and Means Committee the government is shelling out $2,500 a month, or $30,000 per year, for the false applicants. (Snip) Mr. Bagdoyan said the 12th applicant could not get covered because the investigator declined to provide a Social Security number. He said the investigation is ongoing

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare.

General Motors recalls

General Motors (GM) is recalling an additional 717,949 vehicles due to a range of issues, including loose bolts and potentially incomplete welding on some seat hooks. The carmaker has recalled nearly 29 million vehicles this year, most due to faulty ignition switches. The recall-related repairs are expected to cost GM $1.2bn (£700m). GM was criticised for reacting too late to the switch issue, but said it was "enhancing" its approach to safety. "We are bringing greater rigor and discipline to our analysis and decision making," Jeff Boyer, vice president global vehicle safety at GM, said in a statement.

Unspecified glitches in the department´s Consular Consolidated Database have resulted in "significant performance issues, including outages" in the processing of applications for passports, visas and reports of Americans born abroad since Saturday, spokeswoman Marie Harf said.

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Republican Party’s bookish former vice presidential nominee, is starting to look like a candidate for the presidency in 2016. In August, Ryan will publish a book with a distinctly campaign-themed title, The Way Forward.
