A teachable moment in foreign policy
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/11/2014 5:15:28 AM

Conservative critics of the president’s foreign policy were relieved when President Obama initiated humanitarian relief efforts and air strikes in Iraq. They were, however, rightly worried that there is no concerted strategy to accomplish any national objective, say, the destruction of the Islamic State. His action seemed designed to fend off criticism he is doing nothing rather than devote sufficient resources to halting the metastasizing threat of jihadism throughout the region. Indeed, the president went out of his way in his remarks Thursday night to avoid explaining the threat posed by a terrorist state to the United States. It’s as

Good piece. Especially pointing out the weasel-ing Miss Hilaria is currently up to concerning her own culpability. She will be painting herself as a tougher, more realistic commander in chief than President Gutsy Choom, but she can be nothing but just as bad.

Almost everywhere on the planet where there are major problems or conflicts, Muslims are at the root. Ultimately, nothing will change until radical Islam is wiped off the face of the earth and all other Muslims (moderates?) are disarmed and forced into submission.

History repeats itself over and over again. Did the Crusade attempt to wipe the muzzies off the face of the earth. I remember reading there were on 500 left.

This article points out how real duplicitous and vile the demonrats are. It is a good piece to key and review whenever you feel sorry for them - if that ever should happen.

The Sunnis (Saudi Arabia, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, Saddam Hussein, Yasser Arafat) are about 85% of the Muslims and insist on converting the Shia to their side.
The Shia (Iran, Hezbollah) are about 15% of the Muslims and insist the Sunnis join them.

I don´t see a side I want to support. We are the safest while they are fighting amongst themselves. Let´s pray they never unite. Both have leaders who want to wipe Israel off the map and kill anyone who will not convert to Islam, the religion of peace.

Sooner or later it might dawn on the ignorant MSM that, if an issue is bad for our national security Captain Zero is for it. If it might increase our national security, Captain Zero is against it. Think unilateral disarmament, border invasion, military gutting, economic Armageddon, solar and windmill energy push, etc... you name the topic, it’s always the same-weaken America.

Now we have the WaPo occasionally actually telling at least some truth straight up!

Now that is a reason for at least a few democrast in congress to start considering whether the country is really more important than their personal perks and tenure in office.

An Austin girl, kidnapped 12 years ago has been found after a secret rescue mission yesterday in Mexico. Sabrina Allen has not yet been reunited with her father, but the woman who took her is now in custody. At this point it is not clear when the father and daughter will be united. It´s an amazing story of a father´s refusal to give up. FOX 7 was told the secret mission to find the girl involved operatives with a Beaumont based child rescue team, The FBI, US Marshals and Mexican Authorities. Sabrina was located in a town located South East of Mexico City. One team

Report: Obama Executive Action
Could Protect Illegal Immigrants

National Review Online, by Ryan Lovelace    Original Article

The Obama administration is reportedly considering an executive action that could protect illegal immigrants convicted of serious vehicle-related offenses, including drunk driving, from deportation as they’d normally be subject to under immigration law. The most sweeping piece of executive action President Obama has considered regarding immigration policy would offer effectively legal status and work authorization to some millions of illegal immigrants, but there are other executive actions the administration has considered instead of or in addition to that measure. One of those possibilities, described in a report by the

GAO says Obama administration can´t

Washington Examiner [DC], by Philip Klein    Original Article

The Department of Health and Human Services cannot legally bail out the insurance industry for excessive losses through President Obama´s health care law unless the U.S. Congress approves language allowing the administration to do so, according to a legal opinion released on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office. The ruling could end up provoking a showdown between the White House and Congressional Republicans over Obamacare that has the potential to affect health insurance premiums. At issue is the "risk corridors" program, which aims to stabilize the insurance market on the new health insurance exchanges

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration must acknowledge the existence of an independent investigation into former White House senior economics adviser Austan Goolsbee’s alleged unauthorized access to the Koch brother’s tax returns, a court ruled Tuesday. A federal judge ruled the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) must disclose to watchdog group Cause of Action whether records of an investigation exist. Cause of Action filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit after TIGTA refused to confirm or deny the existence of the investigation in what is commonly known as a “Glomar response.”

Julia Pierson is really putting “secret” into the Secret Service. First, her agency declared that the White House fence jumper who made it all the way into the Executive Mansion was unarmed; turned out later that he had a knife. Then the agency said the jumper was subdued as soon as he entered through the North Portico. Now we learn, from The Post’s Carol D. Leonnig, that he led agents on a dance into the East Room and outside the Green Room. At this rate of disclosure, we may soon learn that the jumper stopped in the Oval Office and signed a

   

 



 
The Democrats´ Biggest Worry:
Obama´s Fall From Grace With His Base

The Democrats’ biggest worry heading toward November is Obama’s fall from grace with his base. This could make things even worse for them than currently expected. Democrats’ only hope to offset Republicans’ anticipated midterm surge is their base’s high turnout. However, Obama’s deep drop with his strongest supporters seriously calls this hope into question. Democrats know they will lose seats in November. The only question is: How many? At best, they hope to hang on to the Senate by a hair. Losses for the party holding the presidency are nothing new. Simply, it happens because the presidential candidate, who brought in sufficient

A federal judge in Oklahoma has ruled that Obamacare subsidies cannot go to residents of states that are not running their own insurance exchanges, a second blow to the Obama administration on a issue that threatens a key element of the health law’s coverage expansion. Judge Ronald A. White said that the administration’s decision to allow subsidies to go through either a state-run health insurance exchange or the federal exchange is an improper and invalid reading of the Affordable Care Act and must be struck. White’s ruling marks the second judgment against the government on the subsidy question and comes as the

In case you non-Jews haven’t noticed, we Jews bicker a lot. Some of us even have bad things to say about Albert Einstein. A fair number of us have bad things to say about Karl Marx. Or about Milton Friedman — to go the other way. (Yes, I think Friedman was a lot smarter than Marx.) So it should be no surprise that Benjamin Netanyahu is only intermittently popular in his home country. At the height of the recent Gaza war, he was a hero on the level of King Solomon, but then, after things quieted down with a relatively indeterminate

As Texas debates the implementation of some of the strictest abortion laws in the country, for at least three female lawmakers and candidates in that state, the debate has become intensely personal. The most high-profile of the three, of course, is gubernatorial hopeful and state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who revealed recently in her memoir that she had medical procedures to end two pregnancies. “Our baby had a severe brain abnormality,” Davis said in a television interview. “We knew that the most loving thing that we could do for our daughter was to say goodbye.” Davis, now trailing badly in her campaign, made

In his speech to the United Nations last week, President Obama pledged to the world that the United States would use its might to stop the horrific depredations of the terrorist movement variously known as the Islamic State, ISIS, or, as he calls it, ISIL. “This group has terrorized all who they come across in Iraq and Syria,” the president proclaimed. “Mothers, sisters, daughters have been subjected to rape as a weapon of war. Innocent children have been gunned down. Bodies have been dumped in mass graves. Religious minorities have been starved to death. In the most horrific crimes imaginable, innocent

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
