2014: Obama’s America
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/17/2014 5:32:24 AM

The summer of 2014 will go down in history as the season when America fell apart. Let’s take a tour of the disasters. Germany in 2008 enthusiastically hosted candidate Barack Obama for his so-called Victory Column speech. Now, Germans suddenly sound as if they are near-enemies of the U.S. Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly was furious that her cell phone was tapped by American intelligence agents. She just kicked the top CIA official out of Germany, further enraged that the U.S. had recruited at least one German official to provide intelligence on the German government. Polls show that Germans find Vladimir Putin’s

Minor runs in with Germans in this case won´t stop media dolts from declaring the world loves us again at the end of Obamas term.Never mind that countries like Japan,Hong Kong,Israel could easily meet theObama bus tires very soon.

Every day there´s a new rabble rouser event to cause more chaos and insecurity every where.

It´s possible any given day that Obama could sieze 401K accounts,convert them to some form of treasury note and use those 100´s of billions for more vote buying schemes and settle social justice claims.

What a list!?! This is how dumbed-down voters, driven by an info-delivery system (media + Internet), put in place a President who isn´t (and easily proving not capable either in any form), a Senate that simply inhibits, stops, and does Zero´s dirty fighting, and a House that is packed with Rhinos and others who´s goal is simply to pander, bluster, and stay in office (for the perks, etc).

FTA: U.S. immigration law simply no longer exists........Almost anyone can cross the border and receive subsidized sanctuary. If you object, you are a nativist, racist, or xenophobe — take your pick.

Laws, regulations and taxes are for Americans. Illegals have the Obama "Get Out of Jail Free" card, just like his illegal aunt and uncle in Massachusetts. If welfare, free housing and the flouting of our immigration laws were okay for Obama´s Aunt Zeituni, they are okay for all of the poor of Central & South America.

Great article by VDH as usual. I never thought I would cheer for a German leader/politician to clobber an American President, but I am proud of Chancellor Angela Merkel for taking action against the U.S.(Obama) I hope other Americans whose ancestry is German are just as disgusted as I am by Obama. As a one-quarter German, I encourage other Americans of German ancestry to vow to never again vote for a Democrat.

Slightly off topic, but I found myself watching the CBS evening news by mistake last night for several minutes. Things are so bad that, after the condescending Scott Pelee (sp?) got done with his democrat talking points that pass for news on that station, they rolled out the decrepit Bob Schieffer to placate the audience and tell them in his grandfatherly way just how bad thing are right now for our country and that he couldn´t remember things ever this bad. It was creepy and almost sounded like "be prepared for even worse things to come". It may also have been a subtle message saying that CBS isn´t going to cover Barry´s butt anymore.....I just found it strange.

I have one correction "The unbiased IRS that we once knew has vanished. It has become an appendage of the ruling government that punishes enemies and rewards friends — and dodges a high-level audit by lying in the same fashion as the tax cheats it goes after." Actually the IRS has become an appendage of the Democrat Party. The IRS bureaucrats like most of the Federal Government are Democrats and they would never do for Republicans what they are willing to do for Democrats. The Federal bureaucracy is staffed with Lois Lerner clones.

Disarming Hamas: An opening for Obama
New York Post, by Benny Avni    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/18/2014 6:04:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama, obviously looking for a way to help Israelis and Palestinians, can start by setting a long-term goal: Demilitarize Gaza. That’s a better aim than sending Secretary of State John Kerry to the region to work out an Israel-Hamas cease-fire. “Armless in Gaza” has a ring to it. It’s a goal right up Obama’s alley, involving far-sightedness, international diplomacy, disarmament — each one of Obama’s claims to fame. He can call it a followup on the success in removing Syria’s chemical arms. It might even restore some of Washington’s lost respect. Consider: Kerry’s first instinct as Hamas-Israeli violence escalated this week was to

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is still something of a punchline after his disastrous 2012 presidential campaign. As he prepares to run again in 2016, there´s nowhere to go but up. Which is precisely where he appears to be going. In the national spotlight again because of the crisis on the southern border, Perry seems to be working his way into GOP voters´ favor again. Witness two new polls this week. The first poll, from NBC News and Marist College, showed Perry right up there with the frontrunners in Iowa, pulling 7 percent of the vote. He was also the second choice of

As the United States gathered information Thursday about the Malaysian airliner shot down over Ukraine, President Barack Obama was in New York on a quick fundraising swing with Democratic donors. But now one of the super PACs that hosted Obama for an event — the House Majority PAC — claims that Obama’s meeting with donors was not technically a fundraiser. According to a pool report from the event, an official with the House Majority PAC disputed the characterization of the meeting as a fundraiser because there were no tickets or cost of admission for donors. “The president is appearing at the event only

Earlier this year, the University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty senate adopted a new Framework for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence, which, according to the campus’s Board of Regents, “places the mission of diversity at the center of institutional life so that it becomes a core organizing principle.” Nothing new under the sun there. But UW economics professor W. Lee Hansen notes something profoundly disturbing in the framework, which apparently went unnoticed by the faculty and the administration: To achieve the plan’s vague aims, the Ad Hoc Diversity Planning Committee formulated five goals and thirty detailed recommendations. Unbeknownst to faculty senators, these goals and recommendations

Hillary’s pollyanna foreign policy

Each new crisis around the world, including the scab scraping problems in Ukraine following this week’s plane downing, seem to demonstrate that foreign policy will be a much bigger factor in the next presidential election than I’d once imagined. Americans will still focus on a host of domestic issues, but it’s impossible to ignore the deteriorating state of affairs around the globe and America’s place on that larger stage. This made it all the more curious to examine Hillary Clinton’s statements about American foreign policy given on, of all places, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Setting jokes aside for

Geography, motive, communications intercepts, and all manner of circumstantial evidence suggest that the likeliest suspect in the horrific deaths of two hundred and ninety-eight people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was the curiously well-armed and well-coördinated military outfit loyal to Moscow in eastern Ukraine. Various government and intelligence officials in Kiev say that they have evidence, including a series of damning tapped conversations among pro-Russian forces, that the separatists shot down the plane, which crashed near Grabovo, a coal-mining town in the Donetsk region. Ukraine’s President, Petro Poroshenko, said, “We are calling this not an incident, not a catastrophe, but a

PRINCETON, NJ -- Four potential GOP candidates for president in 2016 stand above seven others as the best known and best liked among Republicans at this early juncture in the nominating process. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry are all familiar to more than 60% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents and have net favorable ratings of +40 or better. Huckabee has slightly higher familiarity and net favorability than the other 10 potential Republican candidates tested. These findings are based on Gallup interviewing conducted

Why Israel Launched a
Ground War in Gaza
Politico Magazine, by Aaron David Miller    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/18/2014 5:12:51 AM     Post Reply
After days of ominous buildup, it’s finally happening: Israel has launched a ground incursion into Gaza. But why, you say? War, what’s it good for? Israel’s Iron Dome has kept the home front safe; Hamas’ rejection of the Egyptian cease-fire offer has given Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the political high ground; and there’s a big risk of losing it if Israel charges into Gaza and ends up killing many more Palestinian civilians. Which it inevitably will. And what’s more, why do the Israelis believe that a ground war will lead to a better outcome than the last one in 2008/9?

Political pundits are divided about the merits of House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama´s employer mandate.

With less than four months to go until Election Day, Democrats increasingly have no confidence in the Obama White House’s political instincts. As a result, more and more Democratic candidates are avoiding the president when he comes to their neighborhood. Senator Mark Udall famously avoided showing up with Obama at a fundraiser in the senator’s honor in Colorado last week. John Foust, the Democratic congressional candidate in a suburban Virginia district just outside Washington, D.C., snubbed the president this week by failing to show up for a presidential event in his area. Representative Henry Cuellar of Texas was flabbergasted by Obama’s

In 1980, under the first administration of Governor Jerry Brown, California decided it wasn’t going to build any more power plants but would follow Amory Lovins’ “soft path,” opting instead for conservation and renewable energy. By 2000, with the new digital economy sucking up electricity, a drought in the Pacific Northwest cut hydropower output and the state found itself facing the Great California Electrical Shortage. You know what happened next. For weeks the Golden State struggled to find enough electricity to power its traffic lights. Brownouts and blackouts cascaded across the state while businesses fired up smoke-belching diesel generators to keep

The ongoing investigation of former CIA director David Petraeus is “perplexing and suspicious,” according to a leading Republican on the House Government Oversight Committee. After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Holder in a new letter this week, "I find the timeline...to be increasingly perplexing and suspicious. I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner."

Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America´s transportation infrastructure.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack Obama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions. At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the power of the purse. So, if the President takes actions that exceed his Constitutional authority, will you withhold funding for those actions in the next must-pass

Ambassador, who described the devastating effects of climate change on his coastal country,” she tweeted. “Showed me chilling photos of eroding coastline, said ‘that’s climate change – a daily life of falling in the sea.’”
