Obama on CIA Scandal:
‘We tortured some folks.’

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/1/2014 5:18:58 PM

That was the most astonishing moment of today’s galling Obama press conference. President Obama had earlier lectured journalists how to do their jobs, ripped Republicans for doing their jobs, and chided everyone within earshot for not wishing him a happy birthday yet. After that descent into pre-teen self-absorption, the president was asked about whether CIA chief John Brennan had lied to Congress under oath when he said that the agency had never spied on senators and staff who were investigating the CIA’s enhanced interrogations of a very few al Qaeda terrorists. Obama glided past the actual question, other than voicing

I just cannot believe we are saddled with that disgusting Marxist political hack for two more years. We wouldn´t want to hurt any precious little terrorists would we? It just makes me go crazy! It´s obvious by their behavior all over the world creating murder and mayhem are never going to change, no matter what the pathetic Obama has to say. And those terrorists who were allegedly "tortured" deserved every bit of it.

Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Democrats, Liberals, progressives et al say whatever they want to say to try to drive their agenda. It doesn´t make any difference if it´s true or not.

I´m really happy my remote has a mute button. Thank God the button can be accessed via muscle memory as the lettering has worn off it.

The words; Hope and Change, Torture have different meanings. I won´t vote for someone who uses vacuous words like Hope & Change AND my definition of Torture is not sleep deprivation.

America never "tortured some folks". We tortured some blood-thirsty Muslim religious zealots who hate America and wouldn´t hesitate to torture Obama into the next century, given the chance.

Interesting is Preston´s observance of Obama´s juvenility when he writes, "After that descent into pre-teen self-absorption,....".

It is good to know that Obama´s immaturity and petulance, which has now evolved into pulling the wings off flies and kicking puppies (us), is recognized outside the blog-bubble. It is a most dangerous mindset when the most powerful man in the world is seen as stunted, twisted, juvenile with a chip on his shoulder.

This is the attitude that will eventually doom him. Already, he is having a hard time not getting the love he craves, so he gets attention the only way he can -- by hurting people who don´t kiss his ring.

I often wonder if this personality trait is why the Left wanted him so badly.

NOTE: Adolph Hitler’s favorite philosopher was Friedrich Nietzsche, an Atheist. Over one of the gas ovens at Auschwitz, there is a plaque that reads, “I want to raise a generation of young people devoid of conscience, imperious, relentless and cruel.”

I wonder if Neitzsche was among Obama´s favorite reads...

(And no, Hitler wasn´t a Christian, although he was baptized as an infant. No Christiand would have even considered the things Hitler did. (Stick with me here).

In fact, Hitler said he used Christian references in his speeches as pure propaganda. Privately, Hitler zealously abhorred Christians and Christianity. He went so far as to ban Christmas and to demand that the Hitler Youth worship him, not Jesus on December 25th.

Are you getting a creepy feeling yet?

Our "leaders" in congress - and the media - rarely are able to bring themselves to us the term "liar" to describe Obama.

But, with the exception of statements to his base promising to maladminister his office for their benefit, it is hard to find even one word or deed involving anything more important than pardoning the Thanksgiving turkey, where the man has been both truthful and intellectually honest.

His bald-face lie that "we tortured some folks" should not surprise us after the man appointed John Kerry, who appeared on the American political scene with possibly the most treasonable lie on record (Senate Foreign Relations Committee, April 22, 1971):

An illustrative verbatim excerpt from Kerry (a US Naval Officer in Vietnam):
"They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country."

And Obama chose Kerry to head our State Department.
Enough said.

Agree with #1. Many people, Obama included, fail to see a distinction (and a difference) between punishment and torture.

I would call sleep deprivation punishment because it sets the occasion for subsequent avoidance reactions. And until better research becomes available, I´d say water boarding is predominately punishment because it too sets the occasion for avoidance.

Christopher Hitchens was water boarded and was convinced he was tortured. But his subsequent comments make me think he experienced severe panic and was punished, assuming he was left with no permanent physical or psychological damage.

I would have welcomed the opportunity to ask Chris about spanking a young child for running into a street. Is it torture if the child subsequently avoids the street?

Many questions remain. What forms of punishment are acceptable? Is water boarding ever justified--under conditions of war when many lives might be saved?

In my thinking, the pattern of adoring fans like those following Hitler, Saddam Hussien and the like, wake up and then the regime is ready for military action and police state when the fans turn against. He expects this to happen, doesn´t care and is prepared. Why else to you think they have purchased all the ammo, trained so many communities with tanks etc? They expect a revolt and then he
will fundamentally change this nation to a police state, then 3rd world dictator state, just as he promised. And, most of all he will go down in history for it. Take a bow, commie, pinko, fool. But, we are the biggest fools for being placated by handouts and not noticing. Well, not all of us.

If the US continues to decline, Barack Hussein Obama will be one day hauled before the International Court and charged with war crimes for the assassination of terrorist families with drones. Former CIA officers will testify that the authorization came from the President and that the only needed justification was being on his list. They will then testify that a legal opinion was later prepared to justify the drone use, but was highly classified.

While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose. (Tweet) It came after Willow Palin´s ex-boyfriend allegedly engage in some

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief
