Obama´s 2012 Debate Boast: I Didn´t
Want to Leave Any Troops in Iraq

Weekly Standard, by John McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/10/2014 10:10:23 PM

Before leaving for vacation on Saturday, President Obama spoke briefly about the genocidal Islamist terrorists who are taking over large swaths of Iraq. When one reporter asked the president if he regretted not leaving any U.S. troops in Iraq, Obama replied that that wasn´t even an option: (snip) When President Obama announced in October of 2011 that no U.S. troops would be left in Iraq, he said he was fulfilling a campaign promise. That´s certainly at odds with how he now portrays the decision to withdraw all U.S. forces from Iraq.

The truth is whatever Obama says it is. Today. Anyone mentioning earlier Obama statements is a racist.

There you have it. Campaign promises are more important than security. I guess that´s why Barry imports all these muslim hordes into the country giving us 27+ jihadist training camps.

If the media really want to provide cover for Obama´s stupidity they need to start by blocking out any comments he makes on any subject.

Barack Obama contradicts himself so often because there is no core to his being. He spouts words instead of articulating his goals or beliefs. We never know what the mission is because he doesn´t know and cannot tell us.

What war has the US ever won where an occupation force not left behind? Since when is it up for debate? we didn´t lose lives for nothing! Since Obama is such an amateur, he probably does not even know this and his closest military adviser, Val Jarrett sure would not know. As volatile as Mideast is, it still did not dawn on him. He was just too anxious to destroy/forget anything with Bush fingerprints on it-a debillitating mindset. Look what he did with the Bush terrorist alert, color-coded system-shredded it.

´ got to love Obama´s recent statement that he could not arm the Iraqis because they are just a bunch of former doctors, farmers, pharmacists. That sounds like something Jarrett would tell him to say, lol.

Obama´s mindset is to get America out of every conflict everywhere, every time. He´s a One World flower child and even said himself that there should be "no victors, no vanquished."

That is fantasy thinking. In a world so dangerous, those who won´t fight for what is right will become victims of those who fight for what is wrong.

Unfortunately for Obama, the IS is not going away. No matter how he tries to frame this i.e. it´s a Civil War that he doesn´t want to meddle in. It´s an invasion that a residual force would have prevented. IMO, the IS would have been stopped at the Syrian border.

Since the Democrats always withdraw the occupation force that Republicans leave behind, that leaves the situation where no long term plan can ever be implemented by Republicans. So the only choice is to inflict long term punishment that doesn´t require an occupation force. Next time we have to go into a country we must use complete utter devastation. Millions of citizens will be left homeless and starving but the Democrats don´t understand that that is what an occupation force avoids. Every member of their government has to be killed. The horror of war has to be so bad that no one else will threaten. Of course the Democrats will eventually regain power and be all apologetic and go in to rebuild their country. But Republicans must leave nothing for them to rebuild. Rebuilding will have to be something that takes decades or else the punishment won´t work. Otherwise we will have many instances of the mouse that roared.

One of Obama´s greatest talents is his ability to speak with an ´air of authority´ on things about which he has no clue! Such an arrogant dope when it comes to doing the right or prudent thing. However, he´s quite good at trampling on America´s heritage, values, history, optimism, security, economy and allies - and knows exactly what he´s doing. His goals and aspirations for America are right on target, unfortunately.

Stay tuned for the immediate close of Gitmo, the transformation of the most wicked, secretive administration ever into the most transparent, miraculously healed (not agitated) race relations, an end to angry partisanship, a chicken in every pot, affordable healthcare for all Americans, a booming economy based on new, clean energy, the demise of underperforming federal programs (ahem), a decline in the deficit, and peace at home and abroad.

It´s only difficult to follow his thinking if you assume that he´s sincere but simply inept. If you realize that he never really meant anything he said and was only doing it for purposeful, situational deceit in order to fool people of his actual future intent, then it all makes perfect sense.

Nothing legal comes to mind, #13, but the imagination sure has lots of ideas.

I, I, I, I, it´s all about him. It doesn´t matter a bit that tens of thousands of Iraqis and Christians were slaughtered as long as obama made some points with his peacenik pals. Adolph Hitler would have been sitting on a throne for 50+ years if Harry Truman and Winston Churchill had that way of thinking.

Well Mr. President I think we are worlds apart on the necessity to do things we´d just as soon not do. You have gone through life being afforded the luxury of getting your way never having to own the real world consequences of getting what you want. You have a scary twisted view of others, the positions they take and decisions they make because you don´t get that they, unlike you, consider all aspects and consequences. I don´t want my son or daughters or my neighbor´s sons and daughters left in some earthly armpit. But I also don´t want to have to refight all of out past conflicts and wars either, and I can´t make myself feel good for not stepping up to the harsh realities by blaming and demonizing those to are wise enough to make difficult serious tradeoff decisions.

#13 asks "Boehner has already promised no impeachment. Is there no other mechanism to remove an unstable president?"

Yes, there is the 25th Amendment, Section 4:
"Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President."

obama´s words are awaited by his idealogues as in the David Wilcox Song

Artist: David Wilcox

By your (obama´s) words alone...

"You blaze this sacred trail I find"

"When I´m afraid of dying
Ashamed of never doing what I´m here for
I´m afraid of being afraid
And wasting precious time

I´m afraid of growing so cold
And closing off the love inside me
I´m afraid of just getting old
And never getting wise

Here tonight
A storm of another kind
Where´s the light I have known
I have known
The lightening strikes
Born of another time
Across these years You have shown
By Your words alone
By Your words alone
By Your words alone

I don´t even know how it starts
Too much fretting and forgetting
But something switches off in my heart
And leaves me to my mind

So I´m reaching for your words in the dark
To bring you here to shine your Wisdom
And all it takes is one sudden spark
To leave this fear behind me

Here tonight
A storm of another kind
Where´s the light I have known
I have known
The lightening strikes
Born of another time
Across these years You have shown
By Your words alone
By Your words alone
By Your words alone

You blaze this sacred trail I find

Here tonight
A storm of another kind
Where´s the light I have known
I have known
The lightening strikes
Born of another time
Across these years you have shown
By your words alone"

Half of Americans Believe Gay Sex Is a Sin
Atlantic, by Emma Green    Original Article

This has been a big year for gay rights in America. In state after state, either judges or voters have affirmed the constitutionality of same-sex marriage, and public support for gay unions reached an all-time high. But there´s still a tension between the acknowledgement of gay rights and the acceptance of gayness itself. A new Pew poll on religion in public life found that exactly half of respondents said they consider "homosexual behavior" sinful, a five-percentage-point increase since May 2013. This view is most prominent among white evangelicals and black protestants; more than three-quarters of each group said they see

A new study released Monday found that warming temperatures in Pacific Ocean waters off the coast of North America over the past century closely followed natural changes in the wind, not increases in greenhouse gases related to global warming. The study compared ocean surface temperatures from 1900 to 2012 to surface air pressure, a stand-in for wind measurements, and found a close match. "What we found was the somewhat surprising degree to which the winds can explain all the wiggles in the temperature curve," said lead author Jim Johnstone, who did the work while a climatologist at the Joint Institute

Learning of a refugee flood, John Stanmeyer went to the border. At least 66,000 Syrian Kurds streamed into Turkey on Saturday, fleeing the latest advances of the Islamic State—the violent Sunni group that has declared a caliphate in parts of Syria and Iraq—as it moved further north in a bid to extend territorial control. The militants’ onslaught left as many as 40 towns and villages in northern Syria, including the border city of Ayn al-Arab, called Kobani in Kurdish, virtually empty, as thousands of men, women and children sought safety. Turkey has received more than 1.2 million Syrian refugees since

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait.

But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.
