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.

BO will never be held accountable for anything by anyone.

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.

As if the situation in Ferguson, Missouri wasn’t bad enough, Code Pink has decided to join the riots and protests. Code Pink infamously dressed as vaginas and paraded around the RNC in 2012. They also protested the maker of my favorite body wash, Ahava, (made in Israel), because it contains “occupied mud.” More ominously, Medea Benjamin, the leader of Code Pink, just attended a gathering of anti-Israel groups, including notorious anti-Semites, in Tehran, as reported by Buzzfeed: A number of American and European antiwar activists and conspiracy theorists have gathered in Tehran for a conference aimed at addressing supposed Zionist control of the

Obama Factor in 2014

Gallup Politics, by Jeffrey M. Jones    Original Article

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

A Loss of Confidence
in American Institutions
Weekly Standard, by Irwin M. Stelzer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 10/4/2014 5:05:20 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk. As reported by Breitbart.com, “A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only

Imagine if you downloaded something that ended up wiping out all the information you needed before meeting with an IRS agent asking about discrepancies on your tax return. How sympathetic do you think that IRS agent would be? But when it comes to the IRS itself, this is just what officials would have us believe. Turns out too it’s not just Lois Lerner, whose computer crashed right after Congress asked for info about the tax targeting of conservative organizations. Now we’re learning of another case where hard drives holding information that would help tell us what the IRS was up to have

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo and a top aide resigned Thursday over revelations that they were among dozens of state officials who sent or received pornographic e-mails over state computers. In a letter to Gov. Corbett, Abruzzo said he had not been able to review the explicit messages he allegedly sent or received, but said he accepted responsibility for "any lack of judgment" he may have exhibited. He added: "It is my concern that these assertions have become a distraction from the great record of this administration." Hours later, the department´s deputy

A convert to Islam who named himself Jah’Keem Yisrael (formerly Alton Alexander Nolen) beheaded one of his coworkers and was shot while trying to behead another on September 26 at his place of work, Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam. The UK Daily Mail reported Tuesday that “while the

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
