Barack Obama refuses to
decide and fails to act

Telegraph [UK], by Janet Daley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/30/2014 8:11:04 PM

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week. [Snip] In the president’s exact words: “We don’t have a strategy yet.” When that bizarre statement hit the news outlets, the White House spin team flew into full-on operation (ie panic) mode and began tweeting to the effect that what the Commander-in-Chief had actually meant was that there was “a range of options” which were still

Comments:
Ms. Daley states firmly that the hallmark of Obama´s presidency is he "refuses to decide and fails to act". Nice motto to have affixed to your family coat of arms.

As always, Ms. Daley has collected together all the bits scattered about and made them into a stunning patchwork, this time of billowing danger and imminent threat. For instance, contrary to what many people might believe, Obama has yet to even suggest the UK help form a coalition.

I think you´ll like Ms. Daley´s description of Obama´s words as "pious obstruction." I hope this is considered a must read.

In the game of life Barry votes PRESENT and expects pixie dust to take care of the rest, just like it did during his Choom Gang days.

Janet Daley is not just another "pundit." She has been in the forefront of the detailed and factual criticism of the Obammunist from the first article she ever wrote. She is always very well informed and always crystallizes situations into clarity.

We ignore her at our peril.

Well done!

But...

This story doesn´t square with the Must Read "Latest Big Lie:‘We Have No Strategy’" from this morning.

Nor does it square with the CNN breaking L.Com story that American forces have bombed ISIS targets to retake Amerli, along with other allies.

What is really going on?

Either Obama is a cunning Manchurian Candidate who, along with Valerie Jarrett, is turning over America to Iran behind everyone´s back, or he is truly a dithering, blithering coward.

The only country with the military capability to deal with this crisis (as the president boasted) was the US but its intervention would be conditional on the participation of a “coalition of the willing”. For what? Moral cover? Shared political responsibility if it all went horribly wrong?

That is a no-brainer, given Obama´s utter refusal to make solo decisions, even with consultation with experts. Ultimately, decisions are his and he will not make them because they could fail. That is why he is still voting "present".

How Mr Putin, and the terrorists in the Middle East, must be enjoying all this.

You don´t have to go that far away to find people enjoying this. American liberals are rubbing their sweaty pacifist hands together even more enthusiastically than when Obamacare passed. They are very much enjoying how his pen and his phone became his surgical tools to disembowel America.

McCarthy was right.

There was a lot of pious obscurity but one thing was clear enough: America will do nothing alone. This would have to be a team effort in which the US would be just one player. So, instead of providing unequivocal leadership, the American presidency offered scarcely veiled threats.

Foley´s murder was an attack on the USA and Obama is asking others to help us deal with the murderers? This doesn´t make a lick of sense. We need to defend ourselves against the murderers(ISIS)and destroy them.

Mr. Potato Head and his marionette string puller Valerie Jarrett aren´t exactly doing anything that would help the civilized world, being manifestly uncivil people themselves devoted to bringing America down a few notches, down to the level of, say, Greek exceptionalism. And we all know how exceptional Greece is. If there were any justice in this world, Mr. Potato Head would die in prison for treason on a level never before seen, or even imagined. Whoever voted for him should quit voting in abject shame.

Bravely bold Osama bin Obama
Rode forth from a Camel lot.
He was not afraid to die,
Oh brave Osama bin Obama.
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Osama bin Obama.

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have his eyes gouged out,
And his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Osama bin Obama.

An actual Manchurian Candidate would have to put in some effort, give up a few vacations and golf outings, and maybe even come in to work before midmorning on the days he did work.

The one thread that runs through the ill-documented life of Barack Obama is laziness. So that is my thought as well, he´s too lazy to make a decision and act on it. That takes work, gathering information, talking to people, sorting through conflicting opinions. That´s too much like work for Obama. He´d rather go golf or take a vaction.

Sweden to become first European
country to recognize ´Palestine´
Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/4/2014 12:51:12 PM     Post Reply
STOCKHOLM - Sweden´s new center-left government will recognize the state of Palestine in a move that will make it the first major European country to take the step, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said on Friday. The UN General Assembly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine in 2012 but the European Union and most EU countries, have yet to give official recognition. "The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law," Lofven said during his inaugural address in parliament.

Norway’s ruling Conservative Party has voted to withdraw their country’s bid from hosting the 2022 Olympics and providing financial guarantees, evaluating the games to be too costly. Prime Minister Erna Solberg commented, “We have received sound advice and there is no reason not to follow it. A project this magnitude, and at this expense requires broad popular support, of which there is not enough,” cited Norway’s daily English language newspaper, The Local. “We have other things we need to spend this money on.

The harsh criticism flung by US President Barack Obama´s administration against Israel this week for a building project in Jerusalem is only a sign of things to come, according to Attorney Yoram Sheftel.

Jeremy Clarkson has told how he and his Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina under police escort as furious thugs tried to ´kill´ them. Rock-throwing protesters vowed to ´barbecue´ the controversial motoring show host after a row over the star´s number plate boiled over. Trouble erupted after a photo of Clarkson, 54, driving a Porsche with the number plate H982 FKL, circulated online, enraging Falklands War veterans who claimed it referred to the 1982 conflict. The presenter yesterday said the violent protest was ´state-organised´ accusing the Argentinians of taking advantage of their visit for ´political capital´.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

Health experts assembled by the White House conceded on Friday that a second case of Ebola could be identified in the U.S. But they defiantly insisted that the epidemic plaguing western Africa will not rise to the level of a major American outbreak. [Snip] But the overall feeling of the sparsely attended afternoon press conference was one of complacency, with the Obama administration´s top Ebola spear-catchers saying over and over that Americans have nothing to fear even though the government has no plans to close airports to planes originating in at the disease´s ground-zero.

Health officials have admitted their response to the potential Ebola outbreak in Texas has been ‘rocky’--amid growing concern over how a patient with the virus was able to get through customs, was initially turned away from hospital with painkllers and Hazmat teams then took five days to properly quarantine his relatives.

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

It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty. But North Korea experts say that the likeliest reason is also the simplest: That the Supreme Leader

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

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.

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

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
