As World Chaos Continues, Obama
Quietly Retreats To Martha´s Vineyard

Breitbart Big Government, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/19/2014 10:00:18 PM

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

Obama was advised of the video. So what does it take to make him stop a vacation, another 9/11?? He will probably say something as horrifying as he did with the murder of Daniel Pearl "that captured the world´s imagination."

What on this earth is the matter with him? Is he having a breakdown? He is responsible for this chaos.

Yet again, the POTUS sends out another skirt to offer nothingburger-ness instead of standing before the American people and telling them of a disaster. Brave, brave man. Hurry to the country club, please. Your caddy is waiting.

It seems his only response to anything he doesn´t want to talk about is to retreat behind closed doors. When his remarks are unnecessary or ill-formed we get those remarks 24/7. We might actually be better off when he retreats. He can´t do any more damage than he has already done. Again, he looks awful, unless he´s got a good make-up crew, and needs to permanently retire to some quiet place where we never need to hear his grating voice day after day after day.

If you will notice, nowhere in the statement do they condemn ISIS. They only say that, if the video is actually genuine (and they sure don´t want to rush to judgment), they are appalled.

Obama and Hilary armed ISIS, AQ and ISIL in Benghazi.
They are responsible for Foley´s brutal murder by ISIS as well as the SEALS in Afghanistan and others.
These Muslim sympathizer were too clever by half.
They have now armed our enemies.
Obama and Hilary supported terrorist Muslim Brotherhood in Eqypt.
Thank God president Sisi is taking care of them and supporting Israel.
Hillary/Obama betrayed America and our Allies and the Gang of Eight covered it up.

He´s...a...Marxist...and...a...muslim...working...for...muslims...and ...Marxists.

People will not understand the dire threat with which we are faced until they understand that Abu bin Bama isn´t stupid or incompetent in what he does or doesn´t do...this is all by design. He doesn´t care about America, he never has. His intention is to destroy it, so quit acting like he doesn´t get it. He gets it really well...most of us do not, and therein lies the problem.

Rush talked at length yesterday about Obama´s so-called detachment: I´m convinced he takes so many vacations to further this notion that he doesn´t know what´s going on, he doesn´t care. He´s not responsible. And he is responsible for all of this, folks, and all of this is about the elimination of any opposition, and I mean the wiping out of the Republican Party as a functioning, threatening opposition. That is the objective.

Ed Klein´s lst book sums it up: "The Amateur". But I will add that Obama is also a narcissist who has been told all his life how brilliant he is, and he buys that completely......I am sure he thinks history will vindicate him....but for all of THIS? Most of all, however, I blame the Tom Browcaws and even my fav, Camille Paglia, who, months into the reign, admitted they knew little about Obama. Meanwhile, Fox and others were vetting Barack like mad....but they didn´t bother to look because this was a historic vote and they didn´t WANT to know.

´He´ is a Sunni Muslim.

´He´ has funded the following with US tax dollars and monies from US allies in the Persian Gulf; Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia:

Rebels in Syria and Libya.
Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt twice - first, where Hasni Mubarak was overthrown, second, to re-instate Morsi.
Hamas via Palestinian Authority.
ISIS - formerly known as Al Quada.

The conduit for channeling US funds is the State Department´s National Endowment for Democracy - or NED.

These funds are supposed to be strictly for the purpose of ´promoting peace.´ Another violation of taxpayer funds.

Of course Obama has returned to Martha´s Vineyard. All is going according to plan.

As much as I´d like to believe that he´s merely doing like he did in his legislative past--voting "present", I´ve always felt that he´s doing exactly what he has planned--to make us so weak and feckless internationally that we don´t have the strength or the will to stop the avalanche that he started.
Clearly, his open hatred of the British is a payback for Daddy´s hatred of them, and his actions towards us, his payback for the hatred his "surrogate father" Frank Marshall Davis taught him at his knees.

Check out the "I´m so bored I could die" photo. As usual, the job is too small for his stellar intellect.

He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley.

He is waiting for Valerie to tell him what to say, at which point he will "condemn" the act and promise to "make the perpetrators accountable". He will "not rest" until the guilty are punished. And he will "with great sorrow and shock at the barbarity of such an act", vow to "see to it" that "my military" will avenge his death -- against the Israelis, for starting this whole mess.

Obama was told about this at 6pm while on his way to MV. Not a word. Crickets. Bush would have been on national TV within an hour and would have cut his vacation short, then bombed the living snot out of ISIS on the ground.

Obama looks awful. He´s exhausted from golfing and vacationing, so why won´t people leave him alone with all this trivia about heads being cut off, and Christians and Yazidis being slaughtered, and racist white cope killing innocent "teens"?

In my long life, never has there been a more disgusting excuse for a President. Not even Jimmy Carter could match this troll.

Friends, what you are seeing here, ultimately, is a morally bankrupt hypocrite who has no qualms about condemning Bush for being a bloodthirty cowboy blundering into the middle east while he would be different because he would use "smart diplomacy".

In reality, Obama & his liberal allies have no grounding in reality. The reality is that we are going through another paroxysm of Mahdiism that rocks the world with violence every few hundred years. Only this time, the world may not survive; the liberals are going to get us all killed with their delusional multiculturism.

Okay, so he returns to vacation but what about that other guy they showed at the end of the video. No. I did not watch the video. A picture of the next victim was posted online and I saw that poor man´s face and he knows he will experience the same fate. What is Obama going to do about it? Are we now powerless in the face of such inhuman brutality? Obama does not have the moral clarity that is required when you are faced with this kind of evil so he takes the easy road to denial and plays games. What a pathetic excuse for a man. No outrage. Not even worthy of the time it would take to issue a statement. Obama´s complete indifference to suffering is unacceptable.

I watched a loved one go down this same path..the deterioration of his body and mental function..and death in his early 40´s.
Where IS the annual physical exam results from the President? He is rather overdue.

Is Obama going to stay at Martha´s Vinyard the entire time congress is out of town? He is partying, living large, and symbolically flipping the bird at everyone. Probably views himself as a celebrity at Martha´s Vinyard considering how self-absorbed he is.

After our SEALs killed OBL, at every single opportunity, BO boasted about HIS having killed Osama. Remember the campaign refrain, "Osama is dead! GM is alive!"?

But you don´t hear these boastful words from him now, right? ...and the restraint is not for the sake of our Military´s safety, either.

Do you remember the protesting hoards of militants over "there" shouting "Obama! Obama! there are thousands of Osamas now!"???

This is when we ought to have hit back and harder. Don´t relent! that would be relinquishment.

History is the teacher of us all, if we pay attention.

President Bush was on the right track in the War on Terror, until incessant political attacks from the Democrats, and probably fears coming from within the Repub hierarchy caused him to hold back from using unrelenting, overwhelming force.

Once our enemies realized that BO had no interest in total conquest and was perhaps even sympathetic to their complaints, the flood-gates were opened.

Once they realized that BO is not merely influenced by the Left, but an arch-member of it, they could be pretty darn sure that he would not really deter the spread of chaos, bloodshed, terror.

You really have to eradicate the whole nest of vipers; they reproduce prolifically.

The new tragedy is that so much progress won by the hard sacrifices of our Military, has been thrown away.

But NeroBama fiddles away on the golf course, dances the nights away, feasts and frolics.

Will anyone shake him out of his egomaniacal obsessions? His sycophantic retainers are just as delusional.

I think that BO & Co., Inc. may change course only if the media, en masse, start doing their job, stop making excuses, stop their fawning flatteries.

Let´s face it. Obozo is NEVER going to change. Anything. He is hard wired as to what he is and what he wants. The only way he could be changed is to have a new brain installed, and that isn´t possible. The only thing we can do is try to change the makeup of the Congress so that we no longer have to put up with Dingy Harry and San Fran Nan anymore. And of course, pray to the Good Lord to watch over and help this country out of the morass it finds itself in.

Rush is wrong .
Barry is and always has been pathologically lazy .
He´s never shown an ounce of energy
and his years long addiction to
hard core street drugs has never been addressed by any member of the media from either side.
Neither FOX or Limbaugh or the main media dares touch it.
Or the possibility that he´s still doped up.
Dreams from My Father is a primer on Barry´s lifelong lack of energy and motivation, his narcissism , his anti white racism ,
his socialism and his drug use.
Barry´s disengagement from everything except playtime seems to have gotten exponentially
more pronounced in recent months.
It´s only now that Senate Democrats are alarmed enough to start speaking out publicly as they did in yesterday´s
blockbuster NYT article.
Barry´s recent bloodless address to the nation on his escalating Iraq war was shocking.
It was obvious that he was having trouble summoning even a modicum of energy.
And his refusal to look directly into the camera
was bizarre even for Barry.

An Iraq war veteran who launched his own aid group to provide medical help for Syrian war refugees has been named as the next potential victim of ISIS. Former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig, 26, who was providing aid to Syrian refugees, has been confirmed as the latest American hostage to be held by Islamic State militants.

Relatives of Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan who were put under observation by CDC after they visited him on the day he was taken to hospital are still waiting for an answer about what they should do 24 hours after they begged them for help. Aaron Yah, 43, and wife Youngor Jallah, 35, yesterday told of their ordeal in isolation and revealed that they had not received direct orders to stay indoors.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was on “Special Report,” where he discussed the Ebola threat, border security and the Secret Service security lapses. "The Secret Service agency merits an independent review right now," Johnson said of the security incidents. Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

MSNBC anchor Krystal Ball and NBC correspondent Anne Thompson shamelessly politicized the Ebola crisis in a Thursday op-ed on MSNBC.com. Ball and Thompson bewailed how due to "Senate dysfunction and NRA opposition, we don´t have a surgeon general right now....during a time when, we not only have Ebola arriving on our shores, but are also dealing with the mysterious Enterovirus, which is infecting and contributing to the deaths of children in the U.S." The two on-air personalities led their piece, "How the NRA is making the Ebola crisis worse," by noting that "poll by Harvard found that 39% of U.S.

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

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

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service.

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. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. 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

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

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
