Has ISIS transformed the
vacationer in the Oval Office?

Washington Examiner [DC], by Mark Tapscott

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/23/2014 5:38:38 AM

President Obama is still vacationing in Martha´s Vineyard as this is written. But he may have experienced a jolting encounter with a grim reality. The problem with Obama is too often there is no "there, there" with his words on foreign policy issues. Most infamously, he drew a red line Syria, warning of terrible consequences if the Assad regime used chemical weapons. Then, when the Assad regime did use chemical weapons, Obama unexpectedly deferred to Vladimir Putin to broker a deal that rendered the red line irrelevant. There is no doubt that Obama, to this point in his presidency, has been epically

FTA: Obama appears ready to mount a war with the ambitious goal of actually winning

What, and interrupt his vacay schedule? And have his anti-war anti-anything-military base p-o´d with him? I´ll believe that, especially the winning aspect, if and when it actually happens.

Although Obama may put forward some encouraging rhetoric, his leadership is likely to remain weak and destructive. His style and pattern of leadership is out there for all to see.

If he were actually going to DO anything as opposed to just flapping his purple nicotine stained gums, he should have done it already. I haven´t seen anything being done other than putting another handful of advisors in Baghdad. Meanwhile ISIS members are strolling across out border unopposed.

If Smidgen actually does anything, it will only be to influence the elections

The intelligence community is saying that a terrorist attack here is imminent. What will Smidgen do then? (Besides blame Bush)

His accomplices in the media will help his staff convince the people that there is no war while a war transpires. The stories of casualties will be buried; if reported at all. The Won will not be pestered at press conferences. The lackeys will do that for him. Just like the Serbia Croatia conflict under Slick Willie. All reports will be kept away from us. Watch for up ticks of diversions in the press while Obama snakes his way through this morass with ISIL/ISIS. There will always be a story from the media which supercedes this impending weak kneed approach to merely keeping the enemy at bay rather than destroying them completely.

It´s too late in Syria-Iraq. Obie dithered way too long, while off the golf course. The surrender in Iraq was a mistake. And his dither on Syria was a bigger mistake. Aghanistan? I don´t know how the world will get well from this. I dont know if Obie could give a flip about ISIS; he´s just doing his time for the next 17 months. Where would we be today with a President Romney. Obviously, we will never know....or will we?

Who could possibly have any faith that Obama would do the right thing or make the best decisions for the security of this country at this point in his pathetically weak presidency. The guy is so committed to his ideology that he can´t conceive of any action that would conflict with it. He does not have the will, courage or moral clarity to make the hard decisions that previous presidents have been forced to make. We are rudderless and the world knows it. Worst of all, our enemies know it and are taking advantage of Obama´s dithering. The feeling we all have in the put of our stomachs now is there for a reason. Something evil comes our way and we know Obama is willfully clueless.

ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas, Al Queda, and all these terrorist barbaric goons lumped together are a dire and direct threat to world civilization. They only disagree on what angle should be taken when you chop the infidel’s head off. Europeans and others who only think America and Israel will suffer are imbecilic idiots. Don’t forget that these maniacs sit atop the world’s oil supply.

It´s a terrible thing to contemplate, but in losing his head, journalist James Foley may have given Obama some backbone.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. Poor Mark has found the conservative wrong stick and beaten himself to a bloody pulp with it.

Why is Obama plussed about ISIS with Hagel saying one thing about them and Obama´s staff saying the exact opposite at pressers held at the same time? Because ISIS, ISIL, IS, pick one, is throwing a wrench into Vallerie´s job of destroying the nation and making YOU conservatives the bad guy like they´ve done since 2009. She needs the Ferguson issue, the Perry issue, the border issue, etc to be constantly fed to the morons she knows will vote for her program. If their voters´ cocker spaniel attention spans are changed to something resembling reality and truth, she has a tough time controlling them and keeping their drool cups filled. Obama simply screwed up and unwittingly tossed an unexpected sack of reality dust at them. A huge no, no according to Val.

I mean come on Mark, do you think Obama, AFTER the fist bumps and smiles in the golf cart came to Jesus and grew a conscience that would actually disagree with Jarrett´s Alinsky-Cloward-Piven program? Are you that stupid?

Or maybe not.

Absolutely, definitely, locked in concrete NOT. Nothing "maybe" about it. Next time you answer your own question, don´t waste your time trying to convince us how brilliant you are.

As long as Obama remains potus we will have national insecurity and terror will flourish around the world. He´ll never do what it takes to annihilate ISIS.

He has set us back fifty years. When he leaves office, it will be like New Orleans after Katrina. This country will need to be rebuilt in every sector from Obama´s sloppy mismanagement. This is why we need strong leadership. The renovation quest should be treated like a business with objectives, deadlines and accountability. I could envision people wanting to participate and be a part of the process. Sort of reminds me of the Victory gardens during WWII. I would love to see the GOP take control and start preparing right now for such a movement by planting seeds of optimism and renewal. Give it a name like "Springtime in America." This may sound corny but people are starving for this type of interaction.

Speaking of names, Ralph Peters coined a new name for Obama´s presidency that perfectly fits..."Reign of Error."

In 1868, Emperor Theodore II of Ethiopia imprisoned two British missionaries and two government officials. The Prime Minister of Britain and Queen Victoria sent British Forces which marched over a 400 mile area of mountains to the Ethiopian Capital.
Result: Two Brits killed, 700 Ethiopians dead, Theodore a suicide, and captives released.

In 1904, Ian Perdicaris, an American businessman in Morocco, was kidnapped by tribal Chief Mulai Ahmed Raisuli´s bandits. President Teddy Roosevelt publicly stated, "Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead", then sent seven US Battleships and the U.S. Marines to Morocco.
Result: Perdicaris released alive.

In 1986 an American Serviceman was killed in a Berlin night club by a Libyan terrorist bomb. President Reagan bombed Libya and its capitol.
Result: Libya dismantled its nuclear program.

In the 1980´s, Iranians captured a Russian diplomat in Lebanon. The next day the Russians dumped the headless body of an Iranian diplomat on the front steps of the Iranian Consulate.
Result: No more trouble.

In 2003 Bush stopped playing golf, saying that a President playing golf in wartime "sends the wrong signal."

So yes, I sure hope ISIS has awakened this Dodo from his drug-induced slumber. Deterrence works.

#17 I was thinking along your same lines before I read your post. However, I believe that going back farther than just 50 years might be where we need to start.

We are going to need to rebuild the military really fast. We may have to return to a draft. Lord only knows that we have too many undisciplined young men with nothing to do in this country. They could learn new skills and be paid at the same time. Hopefully when they leave the military, they will be better and smarter citizens.

In addition, we will need to drill for oil immediately on our own soil so as to not be hampered in our efforts to defend ourselves, which depending on Middle East oil will ultimately do.

The above two actions will put people back to work and will help to eliminate some welfare costs which are killing the economies of many states.

There are several other tactics a new President can do - many of which I´m in no way qualified to recommend. Personally, I would go after Islamists who have infiltrated our government and expose them - something short of what Joe McCarthy did about the communists in government. Obama has compromised our security - make no mistake about it. He and his cohorts must be removed ASAP from any role where they could do any more damage.

We need a national goal - something like what JFK did with the goal of putting a man on the moon before the end of the decade. That really boosted innovation with products, which at the same time boosted employment.

Those running the White Hose and making the decisions have no need to consult the punk who reads their words. He takes no responsibility for anything because he is not connected to the decision making. His only concern is finding ways to amuse himself. The ones in charge are incognito and inflexible in their pursuits. What are Congress and the American people going to do about it? How are they to deal with an amorphous leadership? Nothing has been done so far - other than those states who are organizing a state convention. Should a great disaster occur there is no identifiable person to respond. Obama is a nonentity who can only read his lines. Do you think the anti-Americans in charge are going to initiate a national defence in times of trouble? With a worthless Congress that shows no will or savvy for fighting back, the future is ominous. The Republicans are the opposition that does not oppose. They are mute as America declines. Are they to be issued fiddles? Perhaps the people should send toy fiddles or cutouts to Washington politicians who need to be reminded of their abject political passiveness. Perhaps it would help to goad them into using their voices and their power in rallying acton to transform the White House.

After Benghazi´s Obama Backboneless Lieathon I knew he´d never grow a pair of gonads, never ever. Obama is and has been totally in arrears in fulfilling his Presidential Duties, per the Constitution and per his Oath of Office requirements. He has been getting away with it so far, but sooner or later he´ll be held accountable, on this earth and most certainly in the next on Judgment Day.

If this dumber than a plank POS mounts a war it is only because the Narcissist in chief is very, very angry that the world does not see what a great,wise man he is.

#21, instituting a draft at this point would be about the worst thing that could happen to the US military that has no trouble at all in obtaining all the qualified volunteers that they need. With Obama in the White House, most of the would be qualified draftees would evade being inducted by deferment or otherwise, and the military would end up with a million draftees similar to the young men that you observed looting and robbing in Ferguson, MO along with a mass of illegal aliens seeking amnesty.

Obama was counting on a legacy with the theme that he stopped the Bush and Republican wars, and obviously was not smart enough to recognize that in a war the enemy has a big vote determining if they will quit fighting the war so that it will really stop. Obviously in those wars, even though Obama declared that those wars would terminate on a date certain that was to his domestic political benefit, the enemy disagreed and is still fighting. Since Obama is starting to run out of time to create another legacy that would be acceptable in the ultra liberal world in which he lives, along with his anti-war history, look for Obama to use strong words, but do as little as possible to get involved in another Middle East war in a militarily effective manner, while all the time trying to absolve Islam from any responsibility from all the killing of innocents that the jihadis will continue to perpetrate in the name of Islam.

In response to #28, I should have stated that a military draft would take place under a new (hopefully Republican) President. I agree with you that letting Barry have any control over new soldiers would be horrible. Only a true American - someone who might have served in the American military a few years would be best.

I can´t help myself - I keep looking down the road with hope that we can turn this Obama disaster around. America has recovered from bad presidents before - hopefully it can be done again with the right person in the WH and good people in the Congress.

The images from the Terra satellite feature the patches of water remaining in the disappearing Aral Sea, which was once the fourth largest inland sea in the world.

If you want to know why the American public has such a dim view of lawyers, you should read an opinion issued last month by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Williams v. BASF.

According to the plaintiffs, who have depositions and document evidence to back their accusations, Cahill and its former client, a BASF predecessor, systematically hid and destroyed evidence

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

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,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer.

A Loss of Confidence

Posted By: StormCnter- 10/4/2014 5:05:20 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, 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. We discover that lapses in

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

Another weird Obama pronunciation

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

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

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

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. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

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
