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.

"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

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.

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.

Acting Veteran Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson assured Congress last week that the VA is working hard to replace its “antiquated” scheduling system, but the Obama administration first received clear notice more than five years ago about the need for an overhaul to reduce patient wait times. “Excessive wait times are addressed by moving to a resource-based management system,” Veterans Affairs technology officials told the Obama-Biden transition team in a briefing report that included mention of VA’s “schedule replacement” project. The Washington Times obtained the report through the Freedom of Information Act. More than five years later, VA officials are hard

Israel intensifies Gaza ground assault
on conflict’s deadliest day yet
Washington Times, by David Sherfinski    Original Article

Israeli forces on Sunday escalated their ground operations in Gaza City, leading to the deadliest day in the nearly two-week conflict between Israel and Hamas-backed forces amid calls by top U.S. and Israeli officials for a cease-fire. The Israeli military reported that 13 soldiers were killed early Sunday, and Palestinian authorities reported that at least 65 Palestinians were killed as air and tank fire pummeled the city for hours. More than 420 Palestinians, as well as at least 20 Israelis, have been killed since fighting began July 8. Secretary of State John F. Kerry said Hamas, which wants Israel and

Missile ´Would Have Destroyed
MH17 in Split Seconds´
Breitbart London, by Nick Hallett    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/19/2014 9:46:00 AM     Post Reply
The 298 passengers and crew on board the doomed flight MH17 would have been oblivious to what was happening as the missile struck the plane, according to a defence analyst.

KIEV, Ukraine — The quest for clues in the downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet faced major obstacles Friday as the rebel militias that Ukraine blames for the disaster limited access to the mammoth crash site strewn with airplane parts and bodies. Ukrainian officials were trying to negotiate safe passage for teams of investigators and international observers deep in territory held by the pro-Russian separatists in the east of the country. The fate of the airplane’s black-box data recorders, which could give crucial information about the plane’s final moments, was unclear, with neither side acknowledging possession. And rebels argued among

DETROIT — On the night before her Friday keynote address to a gathering of progressive activists here, Sen. Elizabeth Warren tried to slip into a hotel restaurant for a quiet dinner. But the former law professor has become a liberal superstar, and when a few admirers spotted her walking to the corner of the dining room, they cheered loudly. A moment later, more joined in the applause. Then one urged her, “Run for president!” The next morning at Netroots Nation, where Warren (D-Mass.) gave a fiery sermon for economic populism — “The game is rigged, and it isn’t right!” —

Moral clarity in Gaza

Israel accepts an Egyptian-proposed Gaza cease-fire; Hamas keeps firing. Hamas deliberately aims rockets at civilians; Israel painstakingly tries to avoid them, actually telephoning civilians in the area and dropping warning charges, so-called roof knocking. “Here’s the difference between us,” explains the Israeli prime minister. “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.” Rarely does international politics present a moment of such moral clarity. Yet we routinely hear this Israel-Gaza fighting described as a morally equivalent “cycle of violence.” This is absurd. What possible interest can Israel have in cross-border fighting? Everyone

MOSCOW — A suspected Russian-made surface-to-air missile downed a Malaysia Airlines jet in a separatist-controlled corner of eastern Ukraine on Thursday, prompting the Ukrainian government to denounce an “act of terror” that killed all 298 people on board. U.S. intelligence officials confirmed, but could not identify the origins of, the missile strike that led to the deadliest downing of a civilian passenger plane in recent decades. One Ukrainian government official, however, said the Boeing 777 traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur appeared to have been hit by an advanced Russian-made missile system that recently came into the hands of the

Obama has a lot of yucky vegetables on his big boy plate, these days. But being president, he doesn´t have to eat them. He can skip all the gross stuff and go right for the ice cream. During the Green Revolution in Iran five years ago, "No Drama Obama"did just that. The Islamic Republic was at a tipping point in the summer of 2009. With just a little encouragement from the US, regime change was possible. That would have been great for the Iranian people and made the world a safer place.

DENTON, Texas — The council governing a North Texas city that sits atop a large natural gas reserve rejected a bid early Wednesday that would have made it the first city in the state to ban further permitting of hydraulic fracturing in the community. Denton City Council members voted down the petition 5-2 after eight hours of public testimony, sending the proposal to a public ballot in November. Fracking involves blasting a mix of water, sand and chemicals deep into underground rock formations to release trapped oil and gas. While the method has long stirred concerns about its effects on

The Environmental Protection Agency bowed to fierce criticism Wednesday and announced that it had hit the breaks on a fast-tracked plan to collect fines by garnishing paychecks of accused polluters. The agency, which has come under withering attacks from Republican lawmakers for attempting a “power grab,” said it still intended to pursue the new authority to garnish wages without a court order. But now it will follow a more typical and longer review process. Opponents of the wage-garnish rule applauded EPA’s decision. “It’s about time this abuse-prone agency listened to Congress and backtrack on a rule that was clearly an

The first lady told the kid chefs from each state, the District of Columbia, and three U.S. territories, "I need you guys to make your voices heard," because, she explained, "folks in Congress [are] trying to undo some of the progress that we’ve made to get healthier food into our schools."

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Gay marriage laws and court rulings against sexual-orientation discrimination are all signs that it’s time for the federal government to change its blood-donor policy for gay and bisexual men, authors said in a commentary released Saturday. The lifetime ban for blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) “may be perpetuating outdated homophobic perceptions,” wrote Dr. Eli Y. Adashi of Brown University and scholars I. Glenn Cohen and Jeremy Feigenbaum, both of Harvard Law School, in the July 23/30 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. “Even though well intentioned and guided by a need to

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

France´s Socialist government provoked outrage today by becoming the first in the world to ban protests against Israeli action in Palestine. In what is viewed as an outrageous attack on democracy, Socialist Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said mass demonstrations planned for the weekend should be halted. [Snip] Thousands were set to march against the ongoing slaughter in Gaza, calling for an immediate end to hostilities in which civilians including many children have been killed. But Mr Cazeneuve fears there might be a repeat of the fights between ‘ultra’ Jewish vigilantes and pro-Palestinians which happened after a demonstration last Sunday.

Miami - A jury in northwest Florida awarded a staggering $23 billion judgment late Friday against the country’s second-largest tobacco company for causing the death of a chain smoker who died of lung cancer at the age of 36. Michael Johnson Sr. died in 1996 after smoking for more than 20 years. In 2006, his widow, Cynthia Robinson, of Pensacola, sued the R. J. Reynolds Company, the maker of the Kool brand cigarettes her husband had smoked, arguing that the company had deliberately concealed the health hazards its product caused. The four-week trial ended Wednesday. The jury deliberated for 18 hours over two days,
