Video: Pretty much everyone expressing
dismay over White House response
to world falling apart

Hot Air, by Mary Katharine Ham

Was the Bear loose today? If Valerie Jarrett wanted to get a hashtag going for the president, #smh might have worked. Shep wasn’t the only one baffled by the White House’s insistence on pretending today was a day for the normal shake run and spin. Via the Free Beacon, first ABC notes that the president seemed blindsided by Israel’s starting ground operations in Gaza today. Jonathan Karl cites the President’s and State Department’s optimism just hours earlier that a ceasefire would happen. Second, Gen. Barry McCaffrey wonders aloud to Brian Williams on NBC why State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki seems

The same thing happened in Rome sometime back. I believe the emperor was playing his violin.
In any case, different times but the same results.

Let´s not lose sight of the important thing here: Dear Leader Barack Hussein is a Democrat, and Democrats care about helping people. That´s why they are morally superior to us. Democrats are also concerned about social injustice and saving Mother Gaia from the ravages of constitutionalists. That´s why why they are smarter than everyone else.

So regardless of how Dear Leader appears to behave, we know he cares and is very smart. This is all that really matters, and all that will translate into votes in 2016. If Democrats were actually arrogant, ignorant, moral cowards, don´t you think the GOP would have exposed them by now, instead of constantly touting their "good intentions"? Hillary in 2016 is already almost a lock.

A little OT: During the Sepcial Report video, you can clearly hear Juan Williams talking over Dr. Krauthammer which I find deplorable because Dr. K. has to make such an effort to speak. Like your typical democrat, Juan was trying to shut down any opposing viewpoint. Expect more of this boorish behavior in the future because Obama is being exposed as a failure to anyone who is rational. The one thing democrats can´t allow to happen is for the truth to come out about their boy king. However, the whole world can see what a disaster he is. Be prepared for more wailing and gnashing of teeth by the democrats because rational people can see the results of Obama´s failed policies.

When Krauthammer said that Obama "should make a damned decision for once in his life", I imagined millions of Americans jumping out of their chairs screaming, "Someone finally said it!"

(We have all said it but a person of Dr. K´s visibility and overall stature saying it on national TV is something else.)

I don´t think the passengers on the Malaysian flight shot down nor the Jews in Israel suffering missile attacks believe that obama has "substantially improved the tranquility of the global community" as posited by his Press Secretary. But maybe his jokes made them all feel better. What an asshat we have for a President.

The problem is....Obama has made Decisions. What would America look like IF...the head of ISLAM ran our country? What would happen if a true NAZI ran our country? It would look like what it is now or even worse. Dr. K is looking at what an American President should be...but the truth is Obama is NOT an American President or an American at all. He is American´s Enemy.

This is not a matter of term limits, which I do support for members of Congress and for judges and justices. The 22nd Amendment already provides that for the POTUS. This is rather a matter of impeachment, and conditions are ripe for a serious effort. It will not succeed immediately, but a series of strategic and tactical moves can make it happen. I have postulated a specific "plan" in this regard. With appropriate "tweaks", something like it can work. Each succeeding event justifies the need and makes success more likely. But we must start - now.

Sheer madness.

The world is burning. The drawbridges to our southern border are purposely left down, and invaders of all kinds are pouring in. Not only are we not stopping the invaders but we are actually giving them free transportation to wherever they want to go. And throngs of wealthy Americans gather to throw more funds at Obama for his fiddle playing.

Amazing.

Examples of more apt phrases:

"The Pansy is loose"
"The weasel is loose"
"The gutless metrosexual is loose"

#15 gets an A+, and I thank him/her for reminding others that the 22nd Amendment covered the need for term limits for POTUS.

Also I hope #15 can somehow get across the impeachment idea to those who can make it happen. If Barry isn´t held accountable for his "high crimes and misdemeanors" now, then the U.S. Constitution and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers may as well be chucked. Along with it, there goes the freedoms and guarantees available to all American citizens. Why do I feel that they are already on their way to the wastebasket of history?

One more time, folks, the Founding Fathers provided for times like these more than two centuries ago, and they were prescient in the construction of their timeless document. The delegates to the Constitutional Convention were well aware that the nature of heads of state and leaders doesn´t change.

Ben Franklin, George Washington and the other signers were trying to prevent the weakness to which most governments succumb. They knew what Lord Acton famously observed a few years later and is still true today:
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

He ... doesn´t ... care. How many of these incidents will it take before we are willing to acknowledge this? He can mouth the words and imitate normal human emotions, but he doesn´t feel them. And not only does he not care, but often he won´t even pretend that he does.

There´s something wrong with him and it can´t be fixed. He has a piece missing from his personality. He has no compassion. No empathy. And as a result he has no human sense of proportion or priority. Whether he is a sociopath or a psychopath or a malignant narcissist is for someone else´s analysis. The upshot is he is not a complete human being. He´s a monster.

Poor choice of metaphors. In geopolitical speak, the "bear" uniformly refers to the Russian bear.

In this instance, the Russian bear is off his chain and marauding, and the man elected to show strength and keep the bear in check is off to yet another fundraising party.

Is his code name actually spelled The Bare ?
As in the Emperor has no clothes .
In Dreams from my Father , Barry described a fight he had with his mother when he was a senior in high school.
She, as recounted by him,
called him lazy and unambitious and criticized that his core group of friends were shiftless dopers.
His mother asked if he was going
to be a lazy bum ( Ayers substituted the inappropriate term Good Time Charlie ) all his life.
Barry responded , yup, what´s wrong with that ?
Nothing´s changed with this guy.

I´ve always told my wife that Obama´s perpetual smile, handshakes and pats on the back portend evil, his? The Temptation´s song below describes the Won to a T?


Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don´t tell the truth uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof
The truth is in the eyes
Cause the eyes don´t lie, amen

Remember a smile is just
A frown turned upside down
My friend let me tell you

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don´t tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof

Beware, beware of the handshake
That hides the snake
I´m telling you beware
Beware of the pat on the back
It just might hold you back
Jealousy (jealousy)
Misery (misery)
Envy I tell you, you can´t see behind smiling faces

Smiling faces sometimes they don´t tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don´t tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof
(Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes)
(Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes)

I´m telling you beware, beware of the handshake
That hides the snake
Listen to me now, beware
Beware of that pat on the back
It just might hold you back

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don´t tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof

Your enemy won´t do you no harm
Cause you´ll know where he´s coming from
Don´t let the handshake and the smile fool ya
Take my advice I´m only try´ to school ya

#3 is on to something. The dems are too corrupt to be trusted to rule, but the beltway republicans are too stupid. I wonder when the leadership of the repubs will spend more effort attacking obozo than they do the Tea Party? Mitch McConnell, Ron Johnson, Paul Ryan, etc.. They are so afraid of being called a racist they would rather see the country destroyed than the liberal media call them the r word. If Hildebeast runs, they have to eviscerate her from the get go...but they won´t, and so the people lose yet again.

I just keep hearing all this "stuff" but no one is doing anything about it. Are we not letting our congressmen,senators, Supreme Court and other leaders of our country know how we feel?? We keep talking about it, but NO ONE is doing anything about it. Obama just keeps talking his same old talk - things handed to him by his hand picked morons who know less than he does while he is off playing golf or out for hamburgers. We are snurkered and there is nothing happening about it. Boerner talks about it, but nothing happens. No one is doing anything to stop the flow of distructions from this so call president.

President Barack Hussein Payola Obama… once a community organizer, always a community organizer… once a gutless, fence-straddling, “Present”-voting, puppet-on-a string, always… and so on and so forth.

Never grew up. Always a kid. Decisions? Has others make them for him. But, what about decisions that often must be defended? That’s when he bugs out for the golf course, the fundraiser, the most splendiferous vacation spot or the nearest greasy spoon, all the while meeting and greeting anyone and everyone who adores him, none of whom are likely going to be detained anytime soon from attending a nearby Mensa meeting.

#37, that was the Undisputed Truth--not the Temptations--who did "Smiling Faces". I think their group name is very appropriate here too! Btw, that is one of my favorite songs!

This administration is made up of traitor, tyrants and corrupt monsters. Zero, himself, is self-absorbed and cares NOTHING for anyone but himself. Even his loyalty to his friends and family has limits. The sociopath doesn´t give a darn about the people he supposedly loves, why should he give a second thought to the American citizens and our suffering?

But his recent self-dubbing as "the bear" (dream on!) merits a comparable promotion. Henceforth, he´´ll be the WIC: Wanker-in-Chief, the all-around jerk (supply the last three letters yourself), with all that the term implies: onanist, egotist, idiot, and self-indulgent dolt.

Buraq has no answers. Why would anyone expect him to have answers. His whole administration is a bunch of crony, no-account, affirmative action rogues - looking out for nothing except their next paycheck. I think Hussein has thrown caution to the wind, and is just riding out the next two years. Would that we all could be so fortunate.

He does make decisions, but they are behind the curtain, in secret, with selected cohorts. By the time these schemes become public, the groundwork has been laid.

He is an extremely dangerous tyrannical man because he intends to destroy the Republic.

And he does not relent. He gives us the middle finger, and strides forward in his pompous, arrogant way.

The owners of TBonz Steakhouse in Augusta, Georgia, decided to be proactive when Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law one of the most comprehensive pro-gun bills in the country this April, which allowed firearms into the state’s bars and restaurants. The eatery hung up a “No Guns” sign on its front door. Its customer backlash was so harsh and quick that the steakhouse immediately took down the sign and then posted a mea culpa on its Facebook page. “The sign that was put up regarding firearms has been removed,” TBonz said in its Facebook posting this May. “It was

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was clinging to power Monday as protesters stepped up their assault on government buildings while the capital was gripped with fear and confusion about whether the country’s powerful military will step in to defuse the tension. As the demonstrations calling for the prime minister’s resignation enter their third week, Sharif is trying to navigate Pakistan’s worst political crisis in more than a decade. With the violence increasing, what started as a routine demonstration has morphed into concerns that the government of a nuclear-armed country could collapse.

Mike Rogers, Michigan Republican and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said the administration is sitting on its hands while radical Islamist fighters grow in influence, recruit from abroad and seize more territory in

On August 29, a UN panel on racism urged the United States to "review" its stand your ground-styled self-defense laws and demanded it put a halt to the excessive use of force by police. The U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) claimed that racial minorities are victims of oppression by authorities and apparently targeted by whites with the self-defense laws. "Racial and ethnic discrimination remains a serious and persistent problem in all areas of life from de facto school segregation, access to health care and housing," Algerian Noureddine Amir, CERD committee vice chairman, said in a press

The federal government believes a terrorist attack at the U.S.-Mexico border is imminent and has put out a bulletin on the matter, a government watchdog group reported Friday. Judicial Watch released a statement that said Islamic terrorist groups who have infiltrated the city of Ciudad Juarez aim to use car bombs to attack American interests. “High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,” the statement read. “Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee would like you to donate. Right now. The campaign organization, hoping to lead Democrats to control of the House come November, has spent the past week sending out a series of strongly-worded, seemingly desperate, fundraising e-mails trying to get supporters to donate. “All hope is lost,” reads the subject of one such e-mail. “We’re in serious trouble,” it continues. “Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers are massively outspending us…If we get blown out right now, we might as well give up hope until 2016.” Another e-mail says Democratic campaigners weren’t ready for Republican attack ads.

WARSAW Over and over again — throughout the entirety of my adult life, or so it feels — I have been shown Polish photographs from the beautiful summer of 1939: The children playing in the sunshine, the fashionable women on Krakow streets. I have even seen a picture of a family wedding that took place in June 1939, in the garden of a Polish country house I now own. All of these pictures convey a sense of doom, for we know what happened next. September 1939 brought invasion from both east and west, occupation, chaos, destruction, genocide. Most of the

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S acknowledgment that “we don’t have a strategy yet” in Syria understandably attracted the most attention after his perplexing meeting with reporters Thursday. But his restatement of the obvious was not the most dismaying aspect of his remarks. The president’s goal, to the extent he had one, seemed to be to tamp down all the assessments of gathering dangers that his own team had been issuing over the previous days. This argument with his own administration is alarming on three levels. The first has to do with simple competence. One can only imagine the whiplash that foreign leaders must

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”

Amid conflicting congressional demands, impatient Arab allies, and public concern that he will do too much or too little, President Obama made bluntly clear Thursday why he has not yet implemented a comprehensive U.S. response to the Islamist insurgency that is rapidly spreading across the Middle East. “We don’t have a strategy yet,” Obama said, in response to questions about when he is prepared to begin military action in Syria, and, if not, why not? Rarely has a president spoken so plainly. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” he said. The suggestion that “we’re about to

President Obama gave a press conference today, in which the prime topic was ISIL. Obama’s constant theme was that we don’t have a strategy to deal with the terrorist organization that has been rampaging across Syria and Iraq for months. A transcript of the press conference is here: I’ll be meeting with my National Security Council again this evening as we continue to develop that strategy. And I’ve been consulting with members of Congress, and I’ll continue to do so in the days ahead. … And in order for us to degrade ISIL over the long term, we’re going to

Last month, AFP reported that the Islamic State had established a marriage bureau to help jihadists find brides. It was a troubling sign that ISIL and its self-proclaimed caliphate believed it would be around for a while. Since then, the group has been digging in: In the Syrian city of Raqqah on the banks of the Euphrates River, Islamic State militants are busy building a capital fit for their followers. Human rights observers say they have stoned women to death for adultery, while residents report that religious textbooks have been imported for schools and the market flooded with black cloaks

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

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.

A whopping 95 percent of respondents to a BBC straw poll have said that they think multiculturalism in Britain is a failure. The poll was taken yesterday morning during the BBC’s Saturday Morning Live show, and asked “Is multiculturalism working?” Just 5 percent said “Yes”; 95 percent said “No”. Breitbart London’s James Delingpole was a guest on the show. During the discussion of the results, he said: "I think the thwacking great majority in that poll says it all.

Sometime on Saturday night, vandals attacked three Christian houses of worship in Columbus, Indiana, spray-painting the word "infidels" and citations of verses from the Koran on the outer walls. St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Lakeview Church of Christ, and East Columbus Christian Church all had the word "infidels" spray-painted on them, in places of prominence to be seen by worshipers. Cited in the Indianapolis Star, Columbus police spokesperson Matt Harris said that church employees discovered the vandalism when they arrived to prepare for Sunday services. At St. Bartholomew, the words "Qur´an 3:151" were also left. That verse reads:
