Frozen in the Cold War
Weekly Standard, by Matthew Continetti

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/25/2014 5:18:43 AM

In 1983, Barack Obama was a senior at Columbia University. He was not well known. He lived off-campus, had a few close friends, and spent a lot of time reading. He went to some meetings of the Black Students Association, but no one remembers seeing him there. He majored in political science, with a concentration in international relations, and classmates and professors say he was an attentive and intelligent student. But he was not an active participant in student life. He was not a student radical. He did not go on a hunger strike. He did not storm any administration

He was a senior foreign student living off campus.

I lived off campus my college career. Couldnt tell you one name of any classmates. But, I worked and had friends elsewhere. Obama´s close froends are few and far betwee. ..and not many females until the arranged marriage.

From what I have heard of Obama´s off-teleprompter speaking, I doubt he wrote the material quoted in this article.

It appears as though he has had help all along his life!

Though “the most sensitive among us struggle to extrapolate experiences of war from our everyday experience,” it is impossible to know the true costs of war from afar. “Bringing such experiences down into our hearts, and taking continual, tangible steps to prevent war, becomes a difficult task.”

He writes that he is one of "the most sensitive among us" and that the prevention of war "becomes a difficult task." Was there ever such Woodstocky gobbledegook? Did he write that with a daisy in his mouth?

“With its solid turnout and enthusiasm,” he writes, “one might be persuaded that the manifestations of our better instincts can at least match the bad ones.”

Mankind at its core doesn´t have "better instincts". They must be taught, they are not instinctive. That is why children must be taught that killing each other is bad and it is why we must have laws. Obama believes that through the sheer power of will, he and other like-minded pacifists can eliminate war with their "better instincts." Geez.

Advocates of the freeze proposed no verification system and flirted with unilateral disarmament. The security repercussions were irrelevant to these nuclear dreamers. “The freeze is not a plan,” Charles Krauthammer wrote in the New Republic in the spring of 1982. “It is a sentiment.”

Exactly. Pacifists love feeling good about their pacifism but it´s utterly unreasonable to take such a stance given the warlike nature of mankind. The default position is tyranny. Those who believe that mankind is basically good are doomed to get us exactly where the world is now -- aggression and barbarism.

...continued

...he continues, to this day, to fight “the war mentality.” How he continues to struggle against “the twisted logic” of the Cold War.

...and that struggle will persist until people who think that way realize that it is impossible for there to be a lack of a "war mentality" - it is in man´s nature to be warlike. There are always leaders who are power hungry or mad. That is how things are, how they have always been. At least Reagan knew that because of people like the Russians during the Cold War, we needed a missile defense program. Defense, not aggression.

When Obama studies postwar American history, he sees only the costs of action. He sees only Vietnam, Somalia, and Iraq, meddling in Third World nations, and needlessly antagonizing great powers. What he misses are the costs of inaction: the consequences of not stopping Hitler earlier, of dithering as Yugoslavia came apart, of turning a blind eye to the slaughter in Rwanda, of treating al Qaeda as a band of criminals in the 1990s.

In short, he sees war through the ripple-glass of his own pacifism. There are no circumstances under which he would fight aggression in the world. What worries me is that he won´t fight it in America, either, except against Americans who are not aggressive; they just disagree with him.

When you boil down this excellent, long article, you walk away with a view of the world landscape that is today pocked with war, aggression, lawlessness and fearlessness on the part of madmen. No one fears America´s power any more.

Obama is passively and singlehandedly responsible for this very dangerous state of affairs.

Putting Barry Soetoro´s "world view" aside, let´s look at reality. Why? Just why are all the official records dealing with Barry´s supposed time at Columbia University still sealed and kept under the absolute strictest "lock & key" security, along with all his other vital personal and professional records, starting with his "mysterious" birth and later childhood years in the Muslim nation of Indonesia?---And why aren´t the professional investigative "oyster sniffers" at ABC, CBS, NBC/MSNBC, CNN, PBS, NPR, The Washington Post, New York Times el al at least curious? Could it be they are terrified they might actually discover the truth about their "Black Messiah"?

FTA: “The Cold War techniques of secrecy, snooping, and misinformation, used against foreign governments and foreign populations, became tools of domestic politics, a means to harass critics, build support for questionable policies, or cover up blunders.”

It appears, because of all the international crises arising, that many in the CIA and FBI have seemed to give up on their intelligence gathering because of Obama´s indifference. Morale has to be bad.

Obama says our government did not consider unintended consequences back in the Vietnam and Cold War days. That may be so, but is that not what he is doing now with his policies? Obama is exceedingly naive as a President....to America´s detriment.

"The further you go into Obama’s history of the Cold War, the more liberal shibboleths you encounter. It occurs to you that Obama is not studying anticommunism. He is engaging in anti-anticommunism. The main subject of his criticism isn’t the Communists, it’s the hardliners who fought them. He is paraphrasing, in milder language, the critique of U.S. foreign policy leveled by Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, and Gore Vidal."

So Obama just dances around his appeal for communism, as if someone coached him(Bill Ayers?) about not directly praising it. So he attacks the anti-communist efforts, even the democrats as clouded judgement? Bah, please. Does he really think they went into Vietnam to avoid appearing soft on communism?

Obama is a sick, not so secret admirer of Communist Russia, at best, in collusion with them at worst. He´d roll out the RED carpet for them, provide the best vodka available and they would not give him the time of day.

BO is willing to take non action to satisfy his personal philosophy that the US has involved itself too much in world affairs. He complains of the negative outcomes but makes no effort to calculate the cost of non actions. To him, letting a Hitler ravage the world, like Chamberlain or Lady Astor, would lead to peace and security. It did not and could not because evil people exist in the world and will not disappear or desist because someone wishes them too or preaches to them. History is littered with the bodies of the victims of tyrants.

BO, a typical liberal, sees his INTENT as worthy enough to stand on but totally fails to see the REALITY of the outcome of such a philosophy...death and destruction. He ignores history, as liberals MUST do because it denies their foolishness. And he learns nothing from his continual failures, frozen in clueless stupidity.

American foreign policy has been a joke since the demise of the Soviet Union. Bush41 was sucked into a war by an inept ambassador, Clinton threw the occasional cruise missile when he wasn´t fooling around in Yugoslavia with NATO, Bush43 had no foreign policy until 9/11 and turned that into a strategically bungled mess, and now "reset" Obama. The US for decades cannot decide whether to lead, follow or bumble along.

When it comes to the communists and the Islamists of course Obama is a pacifist. What is the worst that could happen if the communists win and make us communists. Big whoop to Obama, he is a communist. What is the worst that could happen if the Islamists win, convert us to Islam and implement Sharia law. Big whoop to Obama, he is a Muslim. To Obama we have nothing to fear from the communists and the Islamists, they would be good for us so let´s be friends. As his mother used to say in her hippier days, make love not war.

And as a community organizer he has no idea how problems get solved, he just complains until someone does something.

With maybe a little schizophrenia that comes from massive dope smoking.

The Great Big Gubernatorial

National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 10/1/2014 1:45:46 PM     Post Reply
Yesterdays’ big roundup of the outlook for the GOP in the Congressional races spurred a predictable amount of “I’m staying home, the GOP is a bunch of sellouts, I’ll start voting again when the party stands for principle and nominates some true conservatives” responses. You may have seen my reaction here. On to the gubernatorial races… Let’s begin with the states where Democrats said they would be competitive… and they just aren’t. Wendy Davis is not going to derail Greg Abbott in Texas; she’s probably going to have the biggest hype-to-performance ratio of this cycle. Vincent Sheheen finished surprisingly close in 2010

News that a man has been diagnosed with the virus in Dallas days after arriving from Liberia is alarming—and to prevent more U.S. cases, certain rules must never be broken. The announcement that a case of Ebola virus has been diagnosed in a Dallas hospital sent a chill through the medical, public health, and basic citizen communities. I know my jaw surely dropped as far as it has dropped since 2001, when the word of the first anthrax case in New York appeared in my email.

President Obama met Tuesday evening with his national security team amid reports that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was advancing toward toward the predominantly Kurdish town of Kobani on the border between Turkey and Syria. The president and his top foreign policy aides met at the White House on Tuesday "to discuss our comprehensive strategy to counter the threat posed by [ISIS]," the administration said in a statement. The meeting came as CNN reported that Turkish soldiers and tanks were massing at the border amid concerns about a flood of refugees entering the country ahead of advancing ISIS fighters.

The Obama administration is reportedly considering an executive action that could protect illegal immigrants convicted of serious vehicle-related offenses, including drunk driving, from deportation as they’d normally be subject to under immigration law. The most sweeping piece of executive action President Obama has considered regarding immigration policy would offer effectively legal status and work authorization to some millions of illegal immigrants, but there are other executive actions the administration has considered instead of or in addition to that measure. One of those possibilities, described in a report by the

The Department of Health and Human Services cannot legally bail out the insurance industry for excessive losses through President Obama´s health care law unless the U.S. Congress approves language allowing the administration to do so, according to a legal opinion released on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office. The ruling could end up provoking a showdown between the White House and Congressional Republicans over Obamacare that has the potential to affect health insurance premiums. At issue is the "risk corridors" program, which aims to stabilize the insurance market on the new health insurance exchanges

The Obama administration must acknowledge the existence of an independent investigation into former White House senior economics adviser Austan Goolsbee’s alleged unauthorized access to the Koch brother’s tax returns, a court ruled Tuesday. A federal judge ruled the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) must disclose to watchdog group Cause of Action whether records of an investigation exist. Cause of Action filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit after TIGTA refused to confirm or deny the existence of the investigation in what is commonly known as a “Glomar response.”

Then the agency said the jumper was subdued as soon as he entered through the North Portico. Now we learn, from The Post’s Carol D.

The Democrats’ biggest worry heading toward November is Obama’s fall from grace with his base. This could make things even worse for them than currently expected. Democrats’ only hope to offset Republicans’ anticipated midterm surge is their base’s high turnout. However, Obama’s deep drop with his strongest supporters seriously calls this hope into question. Democrats know they will lose seats in November. The only question is: How many? At best, they hope to hang on to the Senate by a hair. Losses for the party holding the presidency are nothing new. Simply, it happens because the presidential candidate, who brought in sufficient

A federal judge in Oklahoma has ruled that Obamacare subsidies cannot go to residents of states that are not running their own insurance exchanges, a second blow to the Obama administration on a issue that threatens a key element of the health law’s coverage expansion. Judge Ronald A. White said that the administration’s decision to allow subsidies to go through either a state-run health insurance exchange or the federal exchange is an improper and invalid reading of the Affordable Care Act and must be struck. White’s ruling marks the second judgment against the government on the subsidy question and comes as the

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
