Obama Just Summed Up The State Of
The World In One Depressing Sentence

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/17/2014 12:48:43 AM

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

He certainly did his part to make it challenging.

So goes the USA, so goes the rest of the world.

Of all the trite analyses he could have made, the least he could have done was to tell us something we didn´t already know or something that wasn´t always true.

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said.

No kidding. Our world has always been complex and challenging. If there were not other wars and other economic problems at other times, there was pestilence, famine, plagues, domestic and foreign mayhem, devastating acts of God and other myriad problems that were "complex" and/or "challenging".

That statement is typical of a lazy mind that cannot think of something other than trivia. Does he think this is all just a game of strategic three-dimensional chess with no humanitarian or spiritual aspects to it? Apparently.

But this is amazing:

On the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Obama said the U.S. would continue to look toward all diplomatic options to produce a ceasefire — hopefully within the next day.

How long do you "continue to look toward all diplomatic options"? Is there a stale date on that tired quasi-solution? Any cease fire that comes out of diplomacy will be short-lived, as always. Why he thinks he can change that pattern is beyond comprehension.

He quickly added Israel "has the right to defend itself" from a barrage of rocket attacks.

Everyone knows that he doesn´t believe that. He abhors Israel and pays lip service to her defense only for the $ he gets for Democrats from American Jews. He would be at his happiest (if happiness is even possible for this hostile passive-aggressive neurotic) if Israel were to be decimated by the Muslim Brotherhood or anyone else who will take on the shovel-ready job.

Conspicuously absent was any mention of the crisis on our southern border. But then, according to him and the Democrats, there is no crisis. The border is secure.

He admits the world is in chaos but the fact that his weakness is causing it is ignored. The only bright spot is he didn´t lay the blame on Bush this time - a slight improvement. The blame should go to Romney. He fought his rivals in the primaries and let this putz win in the general election. He should have the blame for all this and be disqualified from getting the nomination again. Barry should not get the blame because we all know he is such an ideologue it is impossible for him to break with marxist theory which does not work and cannot work. The ongoing disaster is entirely predictable. You put him in office and this is what you will get. The only way to stop him now is for large numbers of his democratic supporters to turn on him - unlikely.

Give it up #9. Zippy "won" through massive voter fraud, using the IRS to target TEA party groups, and idiotic Republican voters who didn´t like the Mormon. The chaos in the world and America´s inability to deal with it is the fault of 0bama, Jarrett and the rest of the evil creatures in this administation, plus the gimmedats and leftist loons who voted for them.

Just imagine what the US and the rest of the world would be like right now if Romney hadn´t had the election stolen from him.

Does anyone who listens to him believe a word that comes out of his mouth? He has no solutions to these problems because he created them either by design or his failure to lead. It is hard to believe that one man could be responsible for so much damage and this article failed to mention any domestic crises of his making which are many. His focus right now is on his golf game and coming vacation. Things are moving along just as he planned. It is chaos everywhere you look. Not bad for a community organizer!

We would like ´´to see concrete actions and not just words´´ from our own government. How does he even dare to use such a phrase about other countries?

We didn´t get where we are accidentally. Which reminds me that Ronald Reagan said in his day, ´´I don´t think you can overstate the importance that the rise of Islamic fundamentalism will have to the rest of the world in the century ahead . . .´´ That ´´rise´´ has been orchestrated. The cost for some very bad mistakes on the part of some of our populace is and will be very high.

Global, one-world governed oppression. That´s closer to what they´re looking at and escalating toward.

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Mr. Obama did not read this pap for you, dear reader. It was meant for the ignorant masses (and their liberal shepherds) who put him in absolute power over us.

It translates as, "Don´t blame me...the world is tough on a black man trying to make things better."

Obama and his minions slide from one disaster and failure to another. We are being invaded by tens of thousands of terrorists and other illegals through our southern border. Harry Reid´s response is ´our borders are secure´. Someone put him in a straight jacket and throw him overboard. He is completely insane.

The world is in chaos and Obama thinks everything is just fine. Just a few problems here and there, but hey, Kerry is on the job. Psst... the Russians are going to establish new bases in Cuba and then build some new missile launching pads.

I think the new Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys live in Washington DC. The greatest country in history is down on its knees and our sovereignty is a thing of the past.

Obama believes the United States is too powerful, and abuses its power. Obama also believes he is correct in abdicating America´s role on the world stage, and let the rest of the world handle its problems while ignoring the fact that the United States was the world´s chief peace keeper diplomatically and militarily. Obama is also very much a social activist, and sides with the ´oppressed´ of the world.

This has created a void on the world stage, and various world powers are re-aligning to fill this void. Did Obama ever stop and think about the consequences? The United States kept the peace, and now that void is being filled by tyrants making war. Obama´s choices will come back to harm this country as well.

Obama says "Its complicated". It certainly is, and his actions have made things even more complex. Obama believes his actions are justified. He is an evil fool.

`...Just imagine what the US and the rest of the world would be like right now if Romney hadn´t had the election stolen from him...``

We would be a lot worse off with Romney as President...according to the lickspittle media`s litany of non stop doom that would rain down on us in a tidal wave of lies.

But we would be a lot better off when all the lies were disregarded. For one thing, no matter how much the Dems and their media buddies dug in, yelled and screamed and bloviated on a mass scale, the economy would have rebounded as some of the crushing leftard weight afflicting it was ended.

The run on the border, 100% the fault of the Dems, would not be happening and there would also be some improvement there.

America would not be the world`s laughing stock and fewer black hats would be tempted to do a Putin. I`ll bet, for a starter, all those victims in Malaysian Airlines 777 would be alive and well.

`Caliphate`` would be just another muzzy dirty word found in horror stories and dictionaries..

And the first world would have a future that didn`t include Sharia.

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me
American Thinker, by Jim Yardley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/22/2014 3:44:09 AM     Post Reply
The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

Want to get a new angle on Obama´s Hope and Change mantra? Longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote the book about it before Obama was even born: The Ordeal of Change. [E]very radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem... It needs inordinate self-confidence to face drastic change without inner trembling. “Action,” wrote Hoffer, “is the most obvious way by which to gain confidence and prove our worth... [but] there must be an abundance of opportunities, and there must be a tradition of self-reliance” for a program of action to work. And back in the 19th century when the first great wave of immigration

President Obama said Monday that as a Washington, D.C., resident he supported statehood for the District of Columbia’s 650,000 inhabitants. "I´m in D.C., so I´m for it," Obama said Monday at a town-hall event to promote his "My Brother´s Keeper" program. "I´ve long believed that folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else," Obama added. The president said there was no reason based on population size to deny the district´s residents statehood. But he acknowledged that the politics in Congress on D.C. statehood would

In response to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, atheists are sitting around knitting. And in this time of national crisis, they are knitting bricks. Worried about the supposedly crumbling wall of separation between church and state, the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) launched a “Knit a Brick” campaign to “harness outrage” at the ruling. The group will send yarn bricks to the Supreme Court, Congress, or White House staffers. Targets will be selected based on the number of bricks the Coalition’s high command receives by August 5, according to Religionnews.com. If organizers collect 400 bricks, they will send them to

But it seems North Korea is not au fait with Kim Jong Un´s break dancing, arm-wrestling and skipping - on show in a spoof video that has gone viral. In a series of clearly photoshopped scenes compiled by a Chinese student, the dictator is shown cavorting in a field with Osama bin Laden, riding a pig through a snowy field, and being fly-kicked into a swimming pool by President Barack Obama. And Pyongyang is not happy. ´It seriously compromises Kim’s dignity and authority,´ a top-ranking official from the Hermit Kingdom said, according to Asia News. North

David Cameron yesterday urged France to abandon a contract to sell warships to Vladimir Putin. Calling for an economic cold war, the Prime Minister urged other EU leaders to agree tough sanctions against Moscow. He insisted there should be an embargo on commercial dealings with Russian defence, banking, energy and aviation firms. Ahead of emergency talks in Brussels today, he insisted the EU should also freeze the assets of the Russian president’s allies, whom he referred to as cronies and oligarchs. Mr Cameron told MPs it had been shown beyond doubt that Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by an SA11 missile fired

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Some time ago I contrasted the reaction a conservative would get if he were in the same room with the two most consequential politicians of the 1990s, Bill Clinton and Rudy Giuliani. If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before. If you were in a room with Rudy Giuliani, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

I just want a good deal for the workers." The president also discussed his "vision for an economy," where workers have a fair chance, retirement benefits, family leave and pay equality for woman.

Though the first chapter of Michael Sam´s NFL story lasted just a summer, ending Saturday when he failed to make the St. Louis Rams´ 53-man roster at the end of training camp, his very arrival as the league´s first openly gay player made an impact. Wade Davis, a former NFL player who came out after his playing career ended, told USA TODAY Sports Saturday night that the he´s seen significant changes in how gay players are viewed in the past few months, a credit to both Sam and the Rams.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
