Obama needs to work on his
foreign policy, not his golf game

Los Angeles Times, by Max Boot

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/30/2014 5:24:54 AM

Nero fiddled while Rome burned. On Saturday, President Obama played golf while his foreign policy, and that of the nation he leads, was going up in smoke. Literally. Saturday was the day the State Department ordered the evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Libya. Only three years ago, Obama helped NATO allies overthrow Moammar Kadafi as part of his “lead from behind” doctrine, but he has done little to help the resulting democratic government secure its authority. Not only did the U.S. not support sending international peacekeepers, it didn´t mount a serious program to train a new Libyan army. The

And Libya is touted as Obama´s stellar foreign policy triumph.

It seems to me that Obama is the problem, so why would anyone want him to work on anything except his golf game?

It´s his way of helping the radical Muslims with their caliphate. It´s just that simple, create chaos then walk away and let the radicals take over. He uses the same MO here and it works.

Max seems to be suffering a bit of kool-aid hangover. Foreign policy, as big a disaster as it is, is nothing compared to the domestic policy. All around us, from the moribund economy, to IRS, NSA, Obummercare, illegals flooding the borders, unconstitutional EO´s. And that list doesn´t even touch on Eric HOlder, Valerie Jarrett,etc etc.. and the list goes on.

Read the last sentence: "The world can´t wait for 2017 to see a more robust American approach.´ Uh, Max..This IS the most robust Barry can do. Hitting the golf course and attending fundraisers is ALL he knows how to do. Everything else is up to someone else, so poor little Barry can sit back and gripe that nothing is being done. If, and its a huge IF, the country survives this walking disaster named Barack, I seriously doubt we will ever go back to any semblance of rule of law as we´ve seen before.

Jeter farewell has

Boston Herald, by Chris Villani    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/28/2014 5:14:51 AM     Post Reply
I’ll admit to being a little cynical when it comes to Derek Jeter’s retirement tour. He’s a great player, and his spot in Cooperstown is reserved five years hence. But, as tends to happen in these situations, he’s been a bit overrated in much of the sermonizing of his career over the past several months. Sermonizing that will mercifully come to an end this afternoon at Fenway Park. His walk-off hit Thursday night at Yankee Stadium was special, even for those who have lived to hate the guy in a sports context over the past two decades. It was special

Howard Kurtz writes the obituary of the anti-war movement. Born in 2003, the movement experienced sudden difficulties in January 2009, struggled and limped along for the past few years, and finally collapsed in the street in front of the White House least week: Medea Benjamin of Code Pink was asked why so few on the left oppose Obama. “‘He’s totally defanged us,’ she said, citing his party, his affability — and his race. ‘The black community is traditionally the most antiwar community in this country. He’s defanged that sentiment within the black community, or certainly voicing that sentiment.’” Defanged. Wow, those are

   

 



 
Climate Worship at the Cathedral
American Spectator, by Mark Tooley    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/28/2014 5:05:11 AM     Post Reply
Hundreds of thousands marched in New York recently for climate “justice” in “The People’s Climate March,” convinced that human industry is heating the earth to apocalyptic levels. Naturally there was a religious auxiliary to the Global Warming jamboree in the form of the Interfaith Summit on Climate Change, sponsored by the World Council of Churches, among others. And of course it included earth-friendly worship at the flamboyant Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine, whose theologically provocative services some critics have labeled earth worship. Those critics would have found vindication at the cathedral on Sunday, where “The Religions of the Earth Multi-faith

Justice Department to ban profiling

The Justice Department is expected to issue a broad new policy in the coming two to three weeks banning religious and other forms of profiling by federal law enforcement officers, department sources said Friday. The long-awaited policy will not include an exemption for national security investigations, sources said. National security officials and others in the administration concerned about terrorism lobbied hard for such an exemption, according to congressional sources. The new policy will cover ethnicity and sexual orientation as well as religion. Advocates of the new policy said they were surprised because the debate over the national security exemption had blocked

What is the Pentagon’s
secret space drone doing?
New York Post, by Sharon Weinberger    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/28/2014 4:35:25 AM     Post Reply
For almost two years, an unmanned space plane bearing a remarkable resemblance to NASA’s space shuttle has circled the Earth, performing a top-secret mission. It’s called the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle — but that’s pretty much all we know for certain. Officially, the only role the Pentagon acknowledges is that the space plane is used to conduct experiments on new technologies. Theories about its mission have ranged from an orbiting space bomber to an anti-satellite weapon. The truth, however, is likely much more obvious: According to intelligence experts and satellite watchers who have closely monitored its orbit, the X-37B is being

Is Obama Striking an Alliance with Iran?
PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/28/2014 4:28:03 AM     Post Reply
Two new issues have emerged regarding the Obama administration’s policy towards ISIS, which was announced last week in President Obama’s speech to the nation. Both are connected to Iran: (a) the positions the administration will take regarding cooperation with it in fighting ISIS and (b) in negotiations regarding Iran’s nuclear centrifuges. Should the United States accept Iran as a partner in its fight to “degrade and destroy” ISIS? Already, many self-proclaimed “realists” have argued for its necessity. In today’s Washington Post, Fareed Zakaria states: If President Obama truly wants to degrade and destroy the Islamic State, he must find a way to collaborate

This is one of those problematic stories which generally devolves into acrimony before you get a chance to wrap your head around the facts. I’m not the first person to bring it up – in fact I’ve seen it mentioned multiple times by the Hot Air commentariat – but the examples in high profile cases seem too weighty to ignore. The question at hand involves the media descriptions of suspects and victims in high profile crimes and the ever present, complicating factor of racial tensions in America. For the more heavily weighted side of the scale we need not look very

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Events in Afghanistan and the Middle East have awakened the Western world to the existence of an existential threat. We are not confronting a specific grievance that could be remedied by negotiation. We are not faced simply with rogue regimes and insurgent groups that can be dealt with through sanctions and reciprocal menaces. The threat is rooted in biological and cultural conditions that we cannot change by politics, and which have in any case pushed politics aside. The Middle East is, as we are discovering, not one thing: on the contrary, it is a patchwork of communities whose peaceful coexistence depended

Somewhere out there, possibly in Rockaway, N.J., is a person who enjoys making senior citizens suffer. This hater of the aged decided to rain on their parade by reporting their 10-cent bingo game to the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs this past May, according to the Asbury Park Press. But don´t place all the blame on that Grinch. For instead of laughing off the complaint — because come on, it’s 10-cent bingo at a senior home — New Jersey’s Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission made the decision to drop the hammer.

President Obama has announced to the world that America’s police officers are as disruptive to civil society as Middle Eastern beheaders and Russian-backed rebels. Speaking to the U.N. General Assembly yesterday, he agreed with “America’s critics” who point out that America, too, has “failed to live up to [its] ideals; that America has plenty of problems within [its] own borders.” He went on to explain the particulars: In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri—where a young man was killed, and

Ultra-Orthodox Jews delay flight,

Hundreds of Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men refused to sit next to women on an El Al jet from New York to Israel — and spent the 11-hour flight trying to bribe people to switch seats and loudly praying in the aisles when they refused. “It was an 11-hour long nightmare,” one of the passengers told Israel’s ynet news Web site after the Wednesday morning flight landed. The flight – on the eve of Rosh Hashanah – was not only delayed, but degenerated into chaos once in the air, passengers said. “Although everyone had tickets with seat numbers that they purchased in advance, they asked

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

MOORE, Okla. — Police said Friday a man recently fired from a food processing plant in an Oklahoma City suburb beheaded a woman with a knife and was attacking another worker when he was shot and wounded by the owner of the company. The 30-year-old man, who has not been charged, stabbed Colleen Hufford, 54, severing her head in Thursday´s attack at Vaughan Foods, Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said. Lewis said the man then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, a number of times before being shot by Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff´s deputy and the company´s chief operating officer.

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
