Bolton: World Has Descended
Into Chaos Under Obama

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/6/2014 7:41:35 PM

Former Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton warned of the perilous new age our world has sunken into under President Obama’s leadership. Bolton appeared on Fox Business Wednesday and hammered the president for his failure to effectively lead. “The world is descended into chaos,” Bolton said. He referenced a new WSJ/NBC poll that found Americans are panicking over the uncertain, dismal state of our country. The poll found that only 36 percent of Americans surveyed approve of President Obama’s foreign policy. The former Ambassador warned that if America cowers from a position of power, “you are going to have

Comments:
Yes it certainly has, just the way Obama likes it and wants it. What else would you expect from a tyrannical dictator in power who despises the nation he rules?

And thank you to the Republican voters who didn´t find the candidate quite perfect enough so admitted that they were sitting 2012 out. Our last best chance to rid our country of this scourge before he could do more damage without having to worry about another election.

But no...they stubborned it out. This is their legacy, too.

It is long past time to stop using the term "leadership" when referring to the miscreant Obama.
"Judas Goat" would be more appropriate, leading the livestock to the slaughter.

The AP reported this week that in 2009 Barry instituted the covert surveillance program known as
ZunZunzeo .
The plan was to send youths from South American countries
into Cuba , under the guise of educating on AIDS .
They were supposed to use Twitter and social media ,
to foment civil unrest and a " Cuban Spring ".
BTW-Barry paid the youths $5/ hour -less than minimum wage.
The program eventually fell apart.
Kind of makes you wonder how many other failed
ZunZunzeo like programs Barry dispatched
all over the world to foment unrest.

Sheesh.

LDotters cut each other grammatical slack in our postings, for any number of reasons -- wonky keyboards, imperfect speech-to-text apps, undercaffeinated fingers, bloody-minded AutoCorrect -- but there´s no excuse for subliterate English from people who are purportedly in the business of clear communication.

And while we´re at it, one doesn´t "cower" "from a position of power." Or needlessly split infinitives.

So there.

FTA:

He referenced a new WSJ/NBC poll that found Americans are panicking over the uncertain, dismal state of our country.

When our times are fraught with anxiety over the future of our country and our world, we see Obama entertaining the leaders of 50 African countries, promoting the great business opportunities in that continent and ignoring the brutal nature of many of those individual countries.

US corporate taxes are now close to the highest in the world and many companies have moved and are still moving their headquarters and whole businesses to other countries. "Offshore" is rarely heard any more and we´ve given up protesting those countries who have left--because we understand why. At the same time, US businesses (here and abroad) are using cheap foreign labor in the US, from agricultural workers and building laborers to medical workers, engineers and computer professionals. (I missed out quite a few.)

In short, the government is making us poorer and other countries richer.

Of course panic is creeping into the world´s populations, including ours.

I fear the moment when panic turns from insecurity to looting.

From the OED:

Historically, the past tense of sink has been both sank and sunk ( the boat sank; the boat sunk), and the past participle has been both sunk and sunken ( the boat had already sunk; the boat had already sunken). In modern English, the past is generally sank and the past participle is sunk, with the form sunken now surviving only as an adjective, as in a sunken garden or sunken cheeks.

As for the 36% - unwashed masses living off the largesse off of the government and very wealthy liberal elites who can afford to emigrate when the chaos reaches the US.

Well, it´s not without purpose. When one wants to "fundamentally transform" something, one must first break down what is currently there. Then chaos presents desperation and a willingness to make dramatic changes.

No he´s not disinterested, distracted, or lazy. The correct term is "cunning." And the worldwide chaos he has methodically created is actually staging for his final act of transformation.

The punk in the White House is a miscreant, as are the rest of his gang. But so are the Gang of Eight and those who supported unconscionable borrowing and spending. Those who held the power over spending, but had no interest in exerting it, are the ones who are responsible for chasing away potential voters who want accountability for the irresponsibility. None of the opposition ever spoke up against government support for the evil "Brotherhood", showing the opposition will not deviate from the narrative presented to them. They are unable or, more likely, unwilling to challenge either words or acts of the perpertrators. Who wanted more politicians in power who are willing to follow the same self-destructive path? The gas baggers are less vociferous but heading in the same revolting direction as the fascists who are in power. The chaos is the consequence of all parties involved, including those who allowed themselves to be impotent and, of course, those who voted for the guaranteed chaos.

The killer problem has been long in the making. The metaphorical arrow has been shot. The Democrats got the arrow head, while the Republicans got the shaft.

Imagine if Condi Rice were president. There would be absolutely none of this constant bleating from the MSM about “our historic first black president” nor “our historic first female president” nor even “our historic first black female president”. Instead, there would be constant denunciation, blaming her for every little problem on the planet. But our historic first black president Barack Hussein Obama - because he is a Leftist like the MSM - can make an utter shambles of American foreign policy (albeit intentionally) and garner nothing but adoration in the “free" press. Who dare contemplate what two more years of this can wreak, especially now that nothing Barack Hussein can do, no matter how egregious, will ever be eligible for impeachment?

Anyone surprised? Of course not. Anyone who has had a conversation with a liberal knows they are unreasonable, irrational ideologues. They ignore the lessons of history in favor of how they "see things". Obama´s arrogance of omniscience trumps everything else even lessons of history and facts on the ground. Even worse, this President does not believe in the ability of this country to lead and do the right thing. Therefore, chaos ensues.

Thank you #4 for stating something again that you have no way of knowing or proving. Conservatives always vote, it is the American way and we always do so even if the Republican candidate is the lesser of two bad choices.

If the GOP is going to support and offer up such sterling moderates as Dole, McCain and Romney who run bad, inefficient and uninspiring campaigns time after time, then we are all doomed in the end.

Even in the House of Representatives, the Majority leader spends more time hammering Tea Party incumbents and candidates than doing his job of leading the country out of the mess we are in. The candidates mentioned above are good people, but have no idea how to run political campaigns.

Blaming Conservatives is the new excuse by the GOP for their own incompetence.

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

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.)

ABC’s Jonathan Karl put White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on the hot spot today about how President Obama could say the U.S. “underestimated” ISIS when several high-ranking officials warned of the threat months ago. And what Karl asked is whether this was underestimation on the part of the intel community or on the part of the president. Karl brought up congressional testimony last November from Assistant Secretary of State Brett McGurk. In his statements to the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee [PDF], McGurk spoke of multiple attacks ISIS had carried out last year, and explained how ISIS has been able to thrive: AQ/ISIL

There is likely much gnashing of teeth in the intelligence community today in the wake of Obama’s interview with 60 Minutes last night. He laid the blame for the rise of the Islamic State at the feet of the intelligence community. “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” said the commander in chief on national television. Not true, reports Eli Lake in the Daily Beast. “One former senior Pentagon official who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq was

On Sixty Minutes, President Barack Obama said that his administration had “underestimated” the rise of the Islamic State. Recent history supports a case that the President and his counselors have underestimated the entire crisis of disorder in the Arab world at least since the 2011 Libya intervention. Libya’s anarchy today is where the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq is headed swiftly. The chaos of the Islamic State is capable of pulling down with it Jordan, Lebanon, the Gulf States and, unless they are ruthlessly lucky, Turkey and Iran, too. How bad is Libya?

It’s becoming a disturbing trend. For months, Ali Muhammad Brown, a man described as a devout Muslim convert, engaged in what prosecutors allege was a “bloody crusade” aimed at avenging the deaths of Muslims killed by American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. From Seattle, Washington to West Orange, New Jersey, Brown left four bodies in his wake. But the national press refused to report on his case until weeks after he was indicted. Almost none outside local media outlets in Seattle noted that Brown had intentionally targeted gay men is his campaign of vengeance. A Seattle-based Fox affiliate called Brown a “radical

Harry Reid is a determined radical, intent on limiting freedom, overturning American traditions, and remaking our institutions in the name of crushing the opposition and empowering the left. His attempt to amend the First Amendment to curb free speech is a natural extension of his obliteration of longstanding Senate rules that promote deliberation and minority input. But Reid seems almost moderate by left-wing Democrat standards. Take Donna Brazile, vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee for voter registration and participation. For her, eviscerating the First Amendment is small potatoes; she wants to scrap the entire U.S. Constitution. Brazile tweeted: “We need

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

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

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

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

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

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 Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

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.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House
