A confident and clueless president
Washington Times, by David Keene

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/5/2014 5:06:15 AM

President Obama returned from his full-time job as the Democratic Party’s fundraiser-in-chief to host today’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. As he winged his way back to Washington from Kansas City aboard Air Force One, the president sat for an interview with editors of The Economist. The interview was pure Barack Obama, and it revealed him for what he is — an intellectually agile partisan fantasist. According to Mr. Obama, there really haven’t been that many problems, but those we may be experiencing are the fault not of his policies or leadership, but of the fact that he continues to have to contend

Obama is worried about Zimbabwe´s immigration policies but not the US policies?

What a complete and utter loser.

Believe it or not, he is looked upon as a worshiped object among Africans. I guess they are bamboozled by him too.

What I just read obama believes is just the exact opposite of what I believe and is going on in the country. No mention of the labor participation rate being the lowest ever, the millions who have given up on looking for work, the low wage job growth, the invasion of our southern border. The economy stinks except for the energy sector which obama has done everything he can to stop it. Our President is delusional. The sad thing is how many lo-fo voters and liberals actually agree with the nonsense obama told the Economist.

POTUS is very, very concerned with the business opportunities of Africa and other countries where he isn´t responsible for them. Classic Obama: Avoid responsibility for bad decisions by making sure he cannot be held to account.

And then there is his idea of "free market": Free market economy is that situation where the government tells businesses what they are free to do or not do.

Then POTUS unfathomably proclaims that there is no metric by which our economy cannot be proclaimed as having improved since he came into office.

He is called a "fantasist." That is being kind and frivolous. The behavior and comments he exhibits are more in line not with fantasy but with pathology.

Good article.

If the MSM did their jobs and called Obama out on his fantasies, he would be exposed as the delusional, crackhead nerd that he is. Instead, they agree with him totally and propagate the lies every chance they get. No wonder the lofos think he´s a real president. They hear it on TV.

The point will come when the world starts toppling all around him and people will have to choose between him and their lying eyes.

He is the CIC of America - the Crook in Charge. With Alinsky handbook for anarchy under his arm, he is waging war against America, and most have no clue.

As long as the GOP gives him a free ride - we are toast. We have to hope the elections in Nov will wake the sleeping giant that once was great.

Meanwhile, Kerry the menace and the cast of 1000´s wreck havoc on America. Please Pray for America.

Fantasist! Jules Verne was a fantasist. How about: docrinaire Marxo-Fascist? Virulent, white-hating racist? Irreparably brain-damaged, wreckless fool? Tongue-tied yet bloviating thug? FTA: He even has a little praise for those otherwise black-hatted business types who keep harping about being overregulated and taxed: They are with him on immigration reform because they need new workers. Need new workers!? What about the tens of millions already here but unemployed?

What scares me most is that he actually believes this crap he is spewing. To declare him delusional is an understatement.

He´s like a kid being sexually abused who transports himself to another world during the abuse to survive the horror, except in this case it is the nation that is being raped and WTP have nowhere to go.

"Delusional" is probably more accurate than "fantasist." Obama´s mind is fixated on two ideas that keep contrary evidence at bay: America must be weakened in the eyes of the world; individual actions must be regulated (controlled) by big government.

1.11.4 million Americans who were working when George Bush was President are too discouraged to look.
2.The real unemployment rate that includes these ´invisibles´ crept up from 23.0% to 23.2% year over year.
3. Record numbers are on disability and food stamps. One American in three receives public assistance.
4. Median family net worth dropped a whopping 34%.
5. Average family income is down $2500/year.
6. World´s greatest health care system is going down the tubes with 36 of the 50 states refusing to participate.
7. Years of costly patient security gains in Iraq and Afghanistan are being callously thrown away.
8. A never ending series of unforced errors Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iran, Ukraine has made a hash of foreign policy.
9. Borders and sovereignty are dissolving like a lump of mud in the Rio Grande.
10. Proceeds from $7.0 trillion incremental public debt have been totally wasted.

I think I an running out of space.

I have never encountered anyone who is able to lie with such impunity. Obama lives in his own fantasy world where reality does not exist. Whatever he believes is reality. The problem we as citizens have is that this man is the President of the United States and with that, comes power. The opposition party does not understand how to deal with someone like him. They are afraid to confront him for fear of the media, and those who do challenge Obama are called extreme.

Obama needs to be challenged to prove what he says. Letting his statements stand without challenge is enabling him to continue to lie to the American people. The press corps sickens me. The have hounded every President I can remember but treat Obama with kid gloves. It is a disgrace and is enabling Obama to do great harm to this country.

When Clinton was being interrogated in his impeachment, it seemed like an interview in the psycho ward. Now, along comes Obama who one-ups him. This sad sack is showing the world he can get away with saying any nonsense he wants because there is not enough honest media or powerful enough public watchdogs willing to hold him accountable. It is not just a cynical ploy on his part. It reveals his narcissistic sickness as terribly severe while he indulges himself in a self-created delusional world. He is one sick puppy. Having a mentally ill president whose objectives are exceptionally dangerous is all the more frightening because so far there is no organized effort to remove him from office. What he has to say is beyond laughable, it is revoltingly sick. Problems do not just sort themselves out. Sadly, the situation continues to deteriorate. Waiting for a better day or better circumstances is dereliction of duty. It is avoidance.

Never forget that the (D) after his name is for Delusional.

Obama´s mention of Zimbabwe is telling, for its racist and corrupt tyrant, President for Life Robert Mugabe, is surely Obama´s inspiration. Mugabe turned the bread basket of Africa into an economic basket case by brutally seizing the farms of over 4,000 white famers and redistributing (Obama´s 2nd most favorite word after "folks") the land to his ruling elite. Last week Mugabe declared that his fellow black elitists should stop leasing their farmlands back to the remaining white farmers, preferring that the land still being farmed go dormant. If Zimbabwe has an immigration problem, it is the flight of white farmers and its black professionals to other countries, a problem that the delusional Obama will never understand,

I wish it was his own little delusional world. Remember over half of the country voted (those who showed up) for him twice! I believe we have a large segment of our society who genuinely believe their hard working ethical generous constitutionally based fellow citizens are rotten to the core. Look at Lois Lerner´s comments, they believe this rubbish. They are raised in isolation and protected from reality by the very people they hate. Those people, represent harsh realities they´d just as soon deny. Can´t hate the reality you can´t admit exists, so you hate the people who accept it and fail to exist in your fantasy world.

As Rinktum pointed out, the way the press protects this man-boy is disgusting. I made the mistake of watching a segment on Fox News this morning with Bill Hemmer interviewing Bob Beckel and Rick Lowry about O´Reilly´s editorial last night about how Obama is out of touch and our domestic and foreign policy is suffering because of it. Beckel said that no one could have prevented what is happening in the Middle east because of centuries old divisions between the Sunnis and Shiites. But wait a minute Bob - wasn´t it your precious One who made his first foreign policy speech overseas in Cairo saying that because he was exposed to Islam and wasn´t white that he would be much better for the Muslim world? Remember that Bob?

Almost as bad as the MSM is how Obama´s defenders just out and out lie to protect him when they aren;t whining about mean old white people picking on him (Juan Willaims).

I sometimes wonder if Obama believes he will see it through to the end of his term. After all, he is at the point of the spear.

Domestically, he has implemented and nurtured the seeds planted by the Hart-Cellar Act in 1965 (albeit in an illegal way). An Act that was destined to change the racial demographics of America forever. Right now it is in overdrive.

In his mind, he will have a statue on every corner in America II after the reboot. That may be all that counts.

Who knows? I can´t make sense of anything. These are crazy times.

When we read fables about such characters as the Pied Piper or the Emperor With No Clothes, we view them as fantasy or only partially plausible metaphors. Certainly, we think, it would be impossible for such absurdity to occur in real life.

But here we have absurdity come to life. How exactly is it possible that so many otherwise rational humans could continue to believe such delusional BS? And worse, continue to allow such a person to remain in office making unchallenged decisions about all our lives?

Actually, that´s not a rhetorical question. There is an answer, and it´s an important one.

The reason is that this Pied Piper is black. Yes, the reason no serious effort will be made to remove or constrain him is that this country has been conditioned for decades to affirmatively accept that black people must NOT be held to the same standards as all other people, and that even attempting to do so is racist.

Would a white President who became this delusional be treated differently? Of course he would. Until and unless this country treats black people exactly the same as all other people, this insanity will continue.

And yes, I fully expect that some people will label me a racist for saying so (i.e., for saying everyone should be treated equally).

"intellectually agile partisan fantasist" = liar!

Keep hearing sound bites how Africa has a fast growing middle class on par with the United States. Really? Where do they get this stuff. Unbelievable, just like so many things concerning the Obama gang. Perhaps the Obama gang and the left believes the American middle class should be on par with Africa.

Have to wonder if Obama is going to increase immigration from Africa to keep the blacks happy since he is letting in all the hispanics. Identity politics at its best. It would mean more Democratic voters.

One reason, and only one reason...he is black and the label "racist" on any person is now worse than being called a child molester, rapist or murderer.

In the face of this environment, cannot imagine hiring a black person in the future for fear of using the BO play book. Oh, yea...what are the unemployment numbers for black males?

I have given up even thinking about anything that would stop Obama from ruining this country. I think it is too late and I don´t think that anything the Republicans can or should do will make any difference. There are too many people in this country that are beholding to Obama now for their food stamps, welfare, free phones, free hospital treatment and on and on. We are a nation that is no more. It will not be long before there is no way to pay for all this and there will be a revolution and fighting over the food that we can get. It is coming. Actually, I think it has already started with all the robberies and break ins of people´s houses. There is NO hope. It is too far to wait for an election that probably will be too late.

Wendy Davis and why it matters that female

Washington Post, by Nia-Malika Henderson    Original Article

As Texas debates the implementation of some of the strictest abortion laws in the country, for at least three female lawmakers and candidates in that state, the debate has become intensely personal. The most high-profile of the three, of course, is gubernatorial hopeful and state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who revealed recently in her memoir that she had medical procedures to end two pregnancies. “Our baby had a severe brain abnormality,” Davis said in a television interview. “We knew that the most loving thing that we could do for our daughter was to say goodbye.” Davis, now trailing badly in her campaign, made

The woman was grabbed from behind as she was walking from a grocery store to a friend’s home in Fairfax, Virginia, on the night of September 24, 2005. The attacker dragged the 26-year-old into a darkened park and beat her and raped her. He then began to choke her, and as she lost consciousness it must have seemed that his might be the last face she would ever see. But the attacker was apparently

What can you tell about a restaurant from its menu? A lot more than what´s cooking. That´s what linguist Dan Jurafsky reveals in his new book, The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu. Jurafsky, a professor of linguistics at Stanford, looked at hundreds of examples of food language—from menus to marketing materials to restaurant reviews. Along the way, he uncovered some fascinating patterns. For example: In naming foods, he explains, marketers often appeal to the associations that we already have with certain sounds. Crackers and other crispy foods tend to have names with short, front-of-the-mouth vowels (Ritz, Cheez-Its,

In attempting to downplay the political damage from a slew of second-term controversies, President Obama has counted on the American people having a very short memory span and a healthy suspension of disbelief. The time-tested strategy for Obama: Claim he´s in the dark about his own administration´s activities, blame the mess on subordinates, and hope that with the passage of time, all will be forgotten. Harry Truman, the president isn´t. He´s more likely to pass the buck. His latest eyebrow-raiser came on 60 Minutes on Sunday, when the president blamed the failure to anticipate the rise of ISIS on his intelligence

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%

Holder, who said last week he will resign once a replacement is confirmed, also announced that the Justice Department has awarded $124 million in hiring grants to 215 police departments across the country for the Community Oriented Policing Program, also known as COPS. Holder said the money would pay for nearly 950 new officers, who will mostly take on the job of community policing aimed at reducing street crime. The grant gives police departments the money to

Inside An $8 Billion Family Feud:
Who Poisoned The Orkin Fortune?

Over the past half-century the Rollins family became known for two things: killing vermin and throwing great parties. Millions upon millions of vermin. And really, really great parties. Within Atlanta society the clan behind the Orkin pest control empire, now worth some $8 billion, became royalty, the envy of Buckhead’s WASP social set. Gary Rollins, the modern-era patriarch, would invite guests by the hundreds to join him and his wife, Ruthie, at the family’s lush 1,800-acre ranch near Cartersville, Ga.

Obama Was Warned Repeatedly of
Consequences of Withdrawal from Iraq

Top government officials and military brass repeatedly warned of the consequences of sticking to a timetable on full Iraq War troop withdrawal, but President Obama proceeded with the plan in 2011. U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker cautioned against such a move in the years beforehand. “I am certain that abandoning or drastically curtailing our efforts will bring failure,” he said in 2007. “An Iraq that falls into chaos or civil war will mean massive human suffering, well beyond what has already occurred within Iraq’s borders.” He told PBS later that he and Gen. David Petraeus refused to talk about timetables during that

The inequality police are worried that we are living in a new Gilded Age. We should be so lucky: Between 1880 and 1890, the number of employed Americans increased by more than 13 percent, and wages increased by almost 50 percent. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that the Barack Obama years will not match that record; the number of employed Americans is lower today than it was when he took office, and household income is down. Grover Cleveland is looking like a genius in comparison. The inequality-based critique of the American economy is a fundamentally

Beauty Town has an elaborate video surveillance system that displays 16 angles of the store, but the cameras are better at capturing crime than at preventing it. The beauty shop has been looted multiple times since a white Ferguson police officer shot an unarmed black man Aug. 9. Last week, during another round of unrest on West Florissant Avenue, a group of young men broke the front windows and raided the shelves and cash register. Owner Shawn Kim thinks 99% of the people who live around his shop are good people. For the rest, he’s bought a gun. Just in case. If the grand

Rick Perry said on Monday that the Obama administration will have to address the beheading of an Oklahoma woman in what the Texas governor noted closely resembles an act of terrorism. “At some point in time, the administration does have to address this as what is appears to many people that it is — and that is an act of violence that is associated with terrorism,” Perry said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” On Thursday, Alton Nolen, 30, allegedly attacked two women at a Vaughan Foods plant in Moore, Oklahoma. During the attack, one woman was beheaded. Investigators have discovered

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. 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. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

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 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

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.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter. “She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that
