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

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.

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.

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.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

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.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

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

Ebola is a greater clear and present
threat to America than any terror group -

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

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
