To Be Liked or to Be Feared:

“If you want to understand the world,” my great professor of Arabic at Columbia told me, “you need only remember this: “The British want to be respected; The French want to be admired; The Russians want to be feared; And the Americans want to be liked.” It was one of many things — Arab literature and Arabic composition and style (al-inshaa wa-al–usloob) — given me by Professor Pierre Cachia, a wise and worldly man who tells jokes in English, French and Arabic, all perfectly grammatical. If I told my professor’s joke to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, there is a chance

Comments:
This article gives some background information on a professor Said who Obama was friendly with at Columbia. As usual, this guy "pretended to know Arabic and Arab history." Every aspect of Obama is nothing but bad and we are suffering because of it.

"As for Obama’s America, more countries than ever show disdain for a leader who hoped to be the life of the party, who yearned to be liked by acting dumb."
Disagree.
Obama is not acting Dumb- he is dumb.
Note that Said neither spoke Arabic nor understood Arabs - another Pretender who made his career supporting LIE of the Palestinians.
Israel will prevail over the ignorance of the Palestinians and their supporters.

Treat others with respect and demand respectful treatment in return.

BO is too dumb to understand. Having lived as an affirmative action icon he doesn´t realize that once you get out of school, people do not have to respect you or give you a free pass. You have to earn what you get.

The Department of Justice may still bring civil charges against Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman, Attorney General Eric Holder revealed on Thursday. Holder told reporters on Thursday that DOJ had not concluded its investigation into the February 26, 2012 incident and the ´matter is ongoing.´ ´There are active steps that we are still in the process of taking,´ Holder said, according to The Hill. ´There are witnesses who we want to speak to as a result of some recent developments.´ Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, was volunteer with his neighborhood watch in Sanford, Florida, when he had the dust-up with Martin

The number of foreign-born individuals holding jobs in the United States hit a recorded high of 24,639,000 in August, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS has been tracking the number of foreign-born workers annually since 2005 and monthly since 2007. The BLS does not distinguish between foreign-born individuals who are in the United States legally and those who are here illegally. “The foreign born are those who reside in the United States but who were born outside the country or one of its outlying areas to parents who were not U.S. citizens,” the BLS explains. “The

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - Amir Meshal has a fascinating history. He´s originally from New Jersey, but back in 2007 he was detained and interrogated by the FBI in Kenya after escaping from Somalia. Somehow, his travels brought him to Minnesota, and to a mosque in Bloomington, which kicked him out this summer. Friday prayers bring hundreds to the Al-Farooq Youth and Family Center, which is perhaps the largest mosque in the Twin Cities. But not everyone is welcome -- not after Meshal began attending prayer and hanging out earlier this year. In June, the center called police and had Meshal, 31,

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

Two former Obama cabinet officials have declined to testify before the House Oversight Committee in its probe of the White House political office. The news came late Friday in an angry statement from Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who blasted the officials for [shrinking] "from an examination of the facts." "The White House´s efforts to reconfigure its political office does not inoculate it from oversight of any prior wrongdoing or efforts to rectify these legal violations," Issa said. Issa sought out former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis last month because both were accused of violating

Bob Beckel, token liberal panelist of “The Five” on Fox News, sparred with his co-hosts today, claiming that climate change was a bigger threat to the U.S. than the terror group ISIL. “Climate change is so much more consequential than ISIS ever was it’s like putting the United States military up against the boy scouts,” Beckel said. In response, co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle asked Beckel if he was joking, sparking a heated back and forth before Beckel made a final push to advance his argument. “I have people that I think scientifically have a good argument other people say they have a good argument,

In the face of a White House backtrack on executive amnesty, National Council of La Raza spokeswoman Janet Murguia pressed President Obama to “fulfill his promise” to approximately six million illegal immigrants, declaring that “we’re done waiting.” Murguia spoke with MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart on Friday about Obama’s attempt to give Senate Democrats cover by putting off a promised amnesty for illegal immigrants until after the 2014 election. The White House has said for months that action would come by the end of the summer. “We, as a community, expect him to fulfill his promises,” she said. “The president, in March,

During Thursday night´s California gubernatorial debate against Republican Neel Kashkari, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) revealed that nearly 30% of the state´s schoolchildren are either illegal immigrants or do not speak English. Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were "all welcome in California," praised his administration´s immigration policies. He said that California is "setting the pace" on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver´s licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act). Brown then said that these policies were necessary because

There is reportedly better than a 50-50 chance that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will run for president. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Bush´s inner circle of "advisers have been quietly spreading the word that they should avoid committing to other possible presidential candidates until he decides on his own course after the November election" and have been actively dismissing "speculation that the former Florida governor has ruled out a 2016 run."

LUBBOCK, Texas — A Tucson, Arizona kidnapping and extortion plot of an American teen on U.S. soil was committed by previously deported illegal aliens from Mexico and a U.S. citizen who was arrested multiple times by Border Patrol agents for alleged alien smuggling and let go without prosecution by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. A group of six or seven men kidnapped the American teen in Tucson and mistakenly thought he belonged to a wealthy family. The men tortured the teen and insisted his parents hand over $400,000.

Cost-Benefit Calculations

When pressed about the staggering increases in regulatory burden under his administration, President Obama says not to worry because the benefits exceed the costs. But a new and revealing set of charts from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce highlights the shameless deception used to calculate the bulk of these purported benefits. In Charting Federal Costs and Benefits, Chamber researchers analyzed the benefits calculations of the Environmental Protection Agency, which is responsible for the largest portion of the most costly regulations in recent years. What they found obliterates the president’s claims that sky-high regulatory costs are justified.

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

Are you tired of being lied to yet? My guess is no... because Americans seem to have developed an infinite capacity for patience with a federal government that is increasingly mettlesome, mendacious and menacing.[SNIP] This last Friday night, an interview was aired which should convince American citizens once and for all that their government is not telling the truth about what happened in Libya two years ago. That’s been obvious to many of us for months, but despite the naming of a select committee by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate what could have happened, what should have happened,

Vice President Joe Biden gives President Obama´s weekly remarks: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Joe Biden, I’m filling in for President Obama, while he addresses the NATO summit in Wales. When the President and I took office in January of 2009, this nation was in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the great depression. Our economy had plummeted at a rate of 8% in a single quarter — part of the fastest economic decline any time in the last half century. Millions of families were falling underwater on their homes and threatened with foreclosure. The iconic American automobile industry was under siege.

"President Obama has openly reaffirmed his unconstitutional plan to nullify our nation’s sovereign laws, issuing executive amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. In so doing, he will wipe away American workers’ lawful immigration protections.
