He’s Merely Phoning it In Now –
A Failing President Obama Talks
To New York Times For An Hour
Before Heading Off On Vacation….

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 8/9/2014 2:17:18 PM

President Obama gave Thomas Friedman an hour long interview before heading off on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard. Within the interview the failure of a cohesive Obama foreign policy shines through despite the attempted cover from liberal reporters. There’s actually two parts to this interview – the interview as reported - and the opinion piece from Friedman about the interview itself. Within the Times Article you find the footprints of a dejected President staring boldly into the face of his own failure and shortcomings: [...] “We’re not going to let them create some caliphate through Syria and Iraq,” the president said

"Regrets, I´ve had a few. But then again, to few to mention" As have WTP, much more than a few! Your entire term has been filled with our regrets.

One day,perhaps you´ll listen and take to heart the suggestions of your advisory team. But then, one would have to find a heart in there. You had it, then you lost it. And thru no fault but yours. As with every other disaster, the instigator/owner is no one but you. When all fails, is the time to attempt new strategy, Mr. Know-It-All, formerly known as The Won.

If you venture over to the Times and read the interview, and Friedman´s take on it, be warned that not only will it make you ill, the reader comments will make you even sicker. About 90% of the respondents are rhapsodizing about how fortunate we are to have such a wise, nuanced, brilliant leader as Obama at the helm. People have actually commented that Obama is the greatest president in U.S. history.

For dreamers like #2:

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Mr. Obama told Patrick Gaspard, his political director, at the start of the 2008 campaign, according to The New Yorker. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.” September 2008 New York Times profile of Obama.*

The White House takes pride in the fact that Obama’s PDB is “not briefed to him” – because, they say, he is “among the most sophisticated consumers of intelligence on the planet.” *

Obama will never learn anything, because he thinks he already knows it.

He learned a new word, probably from ValJar. He uses it to refer mainly to any opposition to his office. But, he is far too stupid to realize it almost perfectly describes himself (especially def. 2) -

"maximalist"; 1) a member of a Russian group that, in the early 20th century, advocated terrorist action to get rid of the tsar and the setting up of a temporary proletarian dictatorship.

2)an uncompromising person who is determined to achieve a political aim, directly if necessary

This man is a classic psychopath - in his view, the world exists to feed his ego. He IS the world, and we are all just pawns of no consequence.

As #5 showed so clearly, he is a narcissist of the first order, so impressed with his magnificent superiority in every way that it is impossible for him to grasp that he is actually an incompetent fool and breaks EVERY SINGLE THING he touches.

The saying "Liberalism is a mental disorder" is rarely demonstrated so clearly as with this narcissistic Marxist lunatic.

Obama is committed to the ideology that is deeply embedded into his soul. He sees himself as literally all knowing. This knowledge does not come from education, work ethic, a strong moral code, or life experience. It is driven by pure ego. He believes himself to be the smartest man in any room and ValJar is there to reinforce that. Whether she believes it or not, she knows her job is to push through the progressive agenda they both embrace. They both are rabid anti-Americans with an affinity for lies, corruption, arrogance, and all things Muslim. Imagine this country if they could do what they actually want to. The worst tyrants in history would have nothing on them. Yes, they are that dangerous.

“It’s always been a fantasy,” he said, “this idea that we could provide some light arms or even more sophisticated arms to what was essentially an opposition made up of former doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth.”

I remember reading somewhere that the American Revolutionary War was fought and won by doctors, farmers and so forth! Obama is no leader. He wants and is trying to destroy what our Forefathers fought and died for!

Here is a primer on Barack Obama from FrontPage, May 5, 2008.

Can´t say the country was not forewarned:

http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=30778

It begins:

Americans are well acquainted with presidential candidate Barack Obama’s legendary pledges to bring “change” to America’s political and social landscape. (For example, see here and here and here.) Indeed, “Change We Can Believe In” is the slogan that adorns the homepage of his campaign website and so many of the placards displayed by the supporters who attend his speaking engagements. His Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, is also well practiced at issuing calls for change. Her “Change and Experience” ad campaign was but an outgrowth of her 1993 declaration, as First Lady, that “remolding society is one of the great challenges facing all of us in the West.” Most Americans are unaware, however, that when Obama and Clinton speak of “change,” they mean change in the sense that a profoundly significant, though not widely known, individual -- Saul Alinsky -- outlined in his writings two generations ago.

Alinsky helped to establish the confrontational political tactics, which he termed “organizing,” that characterized the 1960s and have remained central to all subsequent revolutionary movements in the United States. Both Obama and Clinton are committed disciples of Alinsky’s very specific strategies for “social change.”


Worth the time it takes to read it.

Swedish woman world´s first to

Reuters, by Simon Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 10/4/2014 1:15:01 PM     Post Reply
STOCKHOLM-A Swedish woman has become the world´s first to give birth after having a womb transplant, opening up the possibility for thousands of infertile women to have babies, the doctor in charge of the research project said on Saturday. The unnamed Swede in her mid-30s delivered a healthy baby boy by caesarean section in early September, around two years after receiving a uterus donated by an unrelated, 61-year-old. She was one of seven women who successfully underwent a womb transplant from a live donor – in most cases the recipient’s mother - and subsequently had in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment.

KYOTO, Japan — North and South Korea have agreed to hold another round of high-level talks after a top-level Northern delegation, including the men thought to be second and third in command behind Kim Jong Un, paid a surprise visit to the South on Saturday. The unusual and unannounced trip — the first such high-level visit in more than five years — comes at a time of intense speculation about North Korea’s leadership, given that Kim, the third-generation leader of the communist state, has not been seen in public for a month. It also comes amid a steady stream of disparaging comments

Dallas hospital changes story

Officials at the Dallas hospital treating the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S. have conceded that doctors handling the case knew when the patient was initially turned away that he had traveled to Texas from Africa. They said the miscommunication was due to a flaw in the electronic medical record system. But a new statement suggests that doctors were indeed made aware of Duncan´s travel history. Earlier this week, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital officials said that emergency room doctors who first treated the man, Thomas Eric Duncan, were not aware that had recently arrived from Africa, even though a nurse who questioned

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’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

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.

At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

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.
