Our Callow Commander-in-Chief
National Review Online, by Charles C.W. Cooke

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/19/2014 5:54:27 AM

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye. While speaking, he responds to obsequy with obsequy — “I love you too!” he

callow, a young person who does not have much experience and does not know how to behave the way adults behave.

With O´Reilly, Krauthammer and many others now walking back their initial zest for Zippy the Magic Negro, it would be well to remember that L.Com posters had him pegged as a traitor-in-chief months before he was elected the FIRST time!

Clint Eastwood was right when he stood on stage with an empty chair. There is no one there. Never has been. Obama is a figment of the Democrats imagination with Valerie running the show. She is a Communist slum lord from Chicago and is paid to handle Obama. Even she can´t make him look good.

It isn’t that he just looks emotionally disengaged when reporting an airline tragedy. He is about as emotionally engaged in the tragedy if he were reading baseball box scores. He simply doesn’t give a damm. It doesn’t effect the only one he really cares about, so machs niches.

The entire Obama clan has traveled to Camp David this weekend. A rare event since they hate the place. When things get really awful for him, he goes golfing. I´m sure no press is permitted to disturb the golfers at Camp David.

I wonder if they will be flying in George Soros to have a word with the gang that has gone so wrong. Makes one wonder what they will be plotting next.

Go placidly ?amid the noise and waste. And remember what comfort there may be ?in owning a piece (of Wallstreet) thereof.
Avoid brilliant and strong persons.
Inflate your tires.
Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself,? (even though in your own mind there may be none) and heed well their advice, ?even though they be imbeciles.
Know Hu to bow to.....and Wen!
Consider that two wrongs never make a right?, but that THREE...do.
Whenever possible, avoid decisions.
Exaggerate your achievements and cloak your plans in “Transparency”.
Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment, despite the changing fortunes of time,? there will always be a big future in humis.
Strive at all times to lie, deceive, hide and/or destroy records.
Remember Benghazi
Know yourself. If you need help, call Jeremiah Wright.

Exercise caution in your daily affairs,? especially with those persons closest to you.? That dipstick Holder on the left for instance.
Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls would drown your shallow little … backside.
May the Muslim Brotherhood sandfleas of time forever ?infest your goat sandwich.
Hire Imams with hooks and sing Sheik KumBayyah
For a good time, call 1-800-606-4311. Ask for Reggie.
Take heart in the bedeepening gloom, ?that your wife is finally getting enough arugula.
Reflect that whatever misfortune may be your lot,? it could only be worse in Kenya.
Therefore, make peace with your god,? whether you conceive him to be a?Hairy Thunderer, or Cosmic Pedophile.
With all your hope and change, DREAM acts and broken promises the world continues to deteriorate. Party hearty and ...Fore!!

You are a Fluke? of the Universe.?You have no right to be here.?
And whether you can hear it or not? the Universe is laughing behind your back.

The only thing he cares about is winning elections. The demise of the country and the world are not a cause for concern. They are his ultimate goal because it gives the State power. Therefore, the only thing he cares about is winning elections.

We call him callow and feckless at our peril. A month from now no one will remember this plane incident. Something new will take its place.

But he will have raised lots of money to win elections in November. Thus he will have succeeded at his goal.

We need to understand this and get our eyes on the real game... November 2014 is our last shot. Forget the person and personality of Obama. He´s already gone.

We need to start working hard now to get out the vote in November! Because he is working night and day to raise money to defeat our candidates. And if he does that he will ultimately win.

Buraq is a stooge, and a totally unqualified President. I used to pray that God would smite and stop Hussein´s plans, but now I am beginning to think that letting the "Bear" roam loose is more beneficial. This ursine fool just keeps revealing to the world how little he has in the way of compassion, wisdom, and leadership.

For the next two years, this is to be our fate. Indifference, drift, diversion, and fatigue. Hello Cleveland! Hello Brooklyn! Goodbye, yellow brick road.

Yeah, and we laugh because the Babylonians didn´t know for two or three weeks that Babylon fell to Cyrus. I wonder if they were as unaware and stupid as we have been for over six years, with conservative talk show hosts, national prayer vigils, and pathetic Depends wearing politicians shouting, "We have to get our Belshazzar back!"

Thirteen days after Cyrus´ takeover, some unknown potter said, "Umm, guys, the old king´s been dead for about two weeks. We chose to be dumb enough to let Cyrus take us over without firing a shot thousands of years before Cloward, Piven and Alinsky were born because God promised it would happen and now we´re too dumb to figure it out. I wonder if anyone will beat our two week record of blissful ignorance."

Fast forward to November, 2008 and we still think good ole Belshazzar will come back in two years. Too bad our modern day Cyrus is the exact opposite of the original. But then we don´t deserve a Cyrus as good as the original. We deserve the one we have.

The Turbulent Summer Of 2014 – Victor Davis Hanson

If your children are old enough to be in college, they probably think the country they were born into is falling apart. If you’re a Baby Boomer like myself, you know the country you were born into is already gone. It’s a hard thing to thwart the general feeling of optimism shared by most Americans during a beautiful summer season. But, if you stop and take a thoughtful assessment of the disasters currently befalling our world, perhaps you’ll see that the fall might be closer than you think.


Ditto. Sober thoughts.

He spent 20 years is a ´church´ where the leader says "God damn America," and the congregation reacts with raucous enthusiasm. It´s like if Bill Ayers would be president.

Brilliant #14. I´ve been a fan of Desiderata for years and have actually taken comfort in the line ´the universe is unfolding as it should.´ However, I must admit that during the past few years of the Obama regime, I´ve begun to doubt it. Surely America does not deserve what is happening right before our very eyes.

I don´t believe Obama is all that intelligent, but he is community organizer smart. He is a man who has been surrounded by virulent anti-Americans since birth. He was soaking it in, smoking his dope, and drifting through life until someone saw his potential. From that moment on, he was groomed for the job he holds now. Once he was approached, he eagerly agreed with his mentors and was set on the path he walks today. Obama was a long time in the making and was trotted out at the perfect time. However, he is unable to fool all the people all the time and that is the fly in his ointment. I just pray that eyes will be opened and people would see what we here at this salon have known from the beginning. Obama is a narcissistic fraud preening around and shaking his tail feathers in a pathetic attempt of feckless leadership that is dangerous to every American.

I began using the words callow and jejune to describe our narcissist in chief in 2009.

This is typical behavior for a malignant narcissist. Such people must be at the center of every story, either as hero (think bib Laden´s death)or as victim (all the whining about Republican obstructionism). When there is no opportunity to play either roll they treat the event as being of no importance. Indeed, with in a short period of time the narcissist won´t even remember that it happened.

It is not a matter of "luck" # 28 that could never have happened. This cannot be stopped by nibbling around the edges it will take a leader who confronts it head on. That will take an unusual combination of courage and intelligence the total opposite of Obama with unwavering support of citizens having similar qualities. The situation is dire - no time to give Romney another kick at the can. You can´t fight something with nothing!

- 0 has two superb competencies: campaigning and community organizing. Unfortunately for us, those competencies are a mismatch for a POTUS. Unlike him, we require someone who can lead us all and govern. Furthermore, foreign affairs events like MH17 are a distraction to his main interest: Remaking America and getting that task to irreversible critical mass by Jan 20, 2017. He is using his two competencies to get this done via organization (e.g. OFA) and $$$.

- And why does 0 appear so callow, so uninvolved? Because of his skill set, that´s why. Alinsky community organizers do not engage or confront. They organize and motivate and identify grievances and a pick out a spokesman. Then they step back and out of the way, coaching as needed. They lead from behind. Hence 0´s two distinct personas, the rabblerouser motivating speech giver, and the distant apparently disengaged unleader.

- And Cooke loses me with his use of ´´obsequy´´ which means only ´´funeral service´´. A typo???
FTA: ´´While speaking, he [obama] responds to obsequy with obsequy — ´I love you too!´ he will tell admirers whose voices rise above the crowd’s — and greets the boos that his speechwriters have sought with faux-surprised entreaties ´´to vote.´´ ´´

ØDumbø is like the local anchor persons on tv. He has no interest in any of the stories. He´s just reading a teleprompter. He has to synchronize his facial expressions with the news. If it´s a tragic story such as a plane crash he frowns. Then it´s time for sports and he smiles as he turns the story over to the jock reporter. Then it´s time for weather and he jokes with the weather reporter. He´s just Ron Burgundy minus the mustache which would make him look like Hitler. So far all he has accomplished is to prove the US needs a president.

We believe Obama is a cold hearted, calculating, lying ... He is amoral which means he has no empathy, no emotional connection to anyone but himself. Nothing bothers him, not the death of anyone, except what happens to him politically. All about self.

A psychologist would say because Obama did not bond with his parents, he doesn´t have an attachment with anyone. One could say he has the same spirit as Scott Peterson who now lives in San Quentin.

Al Qaeda asks ISIS to release
British cab driver: Abducting

New York Daily News, by Michael Walsh    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/16/2014 4:41:18 PM     Post Reply
The Islamic State´s savagery has been condemned by countless people across the globe — even some members of Al Qaeda. A local commander of Jabhat al-Nusra, a branch of Al Qaeda operating in Syria, appealed to ISIS to release British hostage Alan Henning, 47, because he thought the taxi driver from Manchester truly came to Syria to help suffering Muslims, The Independent reported. The Al Qaeda member reportedly told his then-allies that abducting Henning was "wrong under Islamic law" and "counter-productive." U.S. filmmaker Bilal Abdul Kareem told the British paper that the exchange took place just four days after Henning was taken hostage

Protesters from anti-war group Code Pink stood up during Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday to loudly express opposition to the ongoing aerial campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, repeatedly interrupting senators and panelists and driving Democratic chairman Carl Levin up the wall. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey had just walked into the hearing room when protesters clad in pink and holding anti-war slogans crowded just behind the panel. “No more war!” they chanted, their voices mingling chaotically. Levin allowed the protesters about a minute to vent before the gavel came

The War on Poverty
Has Been a Colossal Flop
Daily Signal, by Robert Rector    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/16/2014 3:15:04 PM     Post Reply
Today, the U.S. Census Bureau will release its annual report on poverty. This report is noteworthy because this year marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s launch of the War on Poverty. Liberals claim that the War on Poverty has failed because we didn’t spend enough money. Their answer is just to spend more. But the facts show otherwise. Since its beginning, U.S. taxpayers have spent $22 trillion on Johnson’s War on Poverty (in constant 2012 dollars). Adjusting for inflation, that’s three times more than was spent on all military wars since the American Revolution. The federal government currently

CHICAGO – Domestic violence is extremely widespread among Hispanic families, according to a study released Monday by the Allstate Foundation. Sixty-four percent of respondents in a nationwide survey of Hispanic women said they personally knew a victim of abuse, while 30 percent admitted to having been abused themselves. Asked whether physical, sexual, emotional or financial abuse was their reason for escaping from a dangerous relationship, 88 percent put physical abuse in first place, while 39 percent named financial abuse. "A lot of people can´t identify financial abuse — they always think the worst thing is being slapped around and they don´t understand the

To the amazement of legal observers, the giant oil company accused Patton Boggs of participating in an extortion campaign rooted in the rain forest in Ecuador.

Why is the Brendan Tevlin
murder so underreported?
Legal Insurrection, by Amy Miller    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/16/2014 5:41:27 AM     Post Reply
On June 25, 2014, 19 year-old Brendan Tevlin hopped into his car to return home after spending the evening at a friend’s house. Minutes later, Ali Muhammad Brown approached the vehicle as it was stopped at a red light and fired ten rounds into the car, killing Brendan. Originally, the teen’s murder was labeled an attempted robbery, allowing the media to remain silent. Now, court documents have revealed that Brown’s motivation for killing Tevlin had less to do with thievery, and more to do with America’s pushback against Jihadist terrorism in the Middle East. Via the New York Daily News: According to court documents,

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

Whatever the result of the forthcoming referendum, the relations between England and Scotland will henceforth undergo a profound change. Under the present arrangement the Scots have twice as many votes per head as the English – one to govern themselves, by electing members to the Scottish Parliament, and one to govern the English, by electing members to the Parliament of the United Kingdom. And while the English are more likely to vote Conservative, the Scots send only Labour members to Westminster – even if they don’t send them to Edinburgh. This is because the Scots see the Labour Party as

A former Veterans Affairs supervisor has been sentenced for stealing up to $20,000 of government property, a recent Justice Department release announced. From 2010 to 2013, 48-year-old Venita Godfrey-Scott directed her employees to use materials and supplies intended for VA medical center upkeep on her own house. These taxpayer-funded home improvement projects included “a deck in her backyard, carpet installation, and various kitchen, bathroom and basement improvements.” She also instructed employees to buy other necessary materials with her government-issued credit card, and had them work on these projects during normal work hours, when they were being paid by the VA.

All of the health plans offered by Obamacare exchanges in five states include coverage for abortions in a potential violation of the law that says at least two plans must be available to consumers who don’t want any association with the controversial procedure, according to a government audit released late Monday. Altogether, more than 1,000 Obamacare plans offer abortion coverage in 28 states that don’t prohibit it, the Government Accountability Office said, including 95 percent of the plans in California and all of the plans in Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Hawaii and New Jersey. Under the Affordable Care Act, the

At an event today at Tufts University in Massachusetts, Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren said it was "fair" when an activist compared Israel’s actions in Gaza to the Holocaust. “Eva Moseley, I’m not a student, I’m not an alumnae, but was in faculty life. I was also a Holocaust refugee and I’m extremely concerned that Jews don’t do to another people what was done to them,” said the activist. “I think that’s fair,” Senator Warren responded. “You recently said that you believe that Israel has the right to self-defense," the activist continued. "Do you also believe that the Palestinians have a

A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser long engulfed in controversy over his radical views was let go from his role in the department last week after a long fight by lawmakers and others to revoke the individual’s privileges at DHS. Mohamed Elibiary was until last week a senior member of DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). After years of controversy about his status at DHS, Elibiary announced his final day with the department on Twitter earlier this month and said he would remain close to the agency. Media outlets have raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his departure, speculating that his

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) signaled on Sunday that Congress may hold hearings on the NFL’s handling of domestic abuse in light of the Ray Rice case, if the league does not “police” itself. “If the NFL doesn´t police themselves, then we will be looking more into it. We will -- I wouldn´t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice was fired from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the face in an

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.
