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.

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 Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

President Obama next week will hit the road to receive updates on bombings against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and efforts to contain the Ebola virus in Africa. White House press secretary Josh Earnest Friday said Obama would travel to Atlanta Tuesday for a briefing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on both Ebola and a respiratory virus in the Midwest. The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

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.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — In front of a boisterous pub crowd of young voters here, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run. Paul’s comments came to the New Hampshire chapter of Generation Opportunity, a national grassroots conservative group with a libertarian appeal with thousands of young liberty-minded activists nationwide engaged through it. Paul focused much of his remarks on executive overreach by President Barack Obama, saving some of his most interesting points for a question-and-answer session

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

Department of Justice is launching a new program today in partnership with the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center that will train "community leaders" like teachers and social workers to monitor their communities for signs of radicalization. (snip) In his announcement of the initiative, Attorney General Eric Holder described the program as a way to "be both innovative and aggressive in countering violent extremism and combating those who would sow intolerance, division, and hate" in the homeland. He labeled it an expansion of existent efforts to "to identify threats before they emerge, to disrupt

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration´s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night. [Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.
