With Islamic State, 9/11 anniversary,
Obama’s incompetence is truly dangerous

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 8/31/2014 9:19:57 PM

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

It is done with calculated indifference. I do not for one minute believe he isnt aware of damage he has wrought. He revels in it.

Homer Simpson would be an improvement. He´s an American. ØDumbø could ask someone for advice. But that would be an admission that he just is incapable of solving any of the world´s problems. We are adrift on a ship with no one at the wheel. We just have to hope that when he finally leaves whoever takes over can save the country.

We are at no loss here. Opie is so incompetent it wouldn´t make a difference if he did act on ISIS. It´s all show with this Regime it is always delay, delay, delay. You have to remember Valarie Jarrett is not up to snuff on Foreign policy so Opie has no one to turn to for advice unless he would go to SOS Lurch and we have seen his past record which sucks. We are DOOMED!

To anyone on the Left, the problem isn´t the spread of Islamism and Islamist terror, the problem is American influence. The Leftist posing as commander in chief knows exactly what he´s doing. Anti-Americanism is always the Left´s #1 priority, always at the top of their agenda, their non-negotiable red line in the sand. The Leftist posing as commander in chief is simply doing what he was elected to do - weaken and cripple the USA. And he is far, far from incompetent at this.

"...the president offered this advice to Americans:

´Families should assemble a disaster supplies kit well in advance and have a plan to reconnect after a tragedy...´ ".

The word incompetent doesn´t even cover it.

One thing for sure, those jihadists won´t attack the WH, since Barry & his whole administration is in on the planning and helping them out every which way they can.

This awful feeling of dread we are experiencing is a direct result of knowing that the Obama administration is incompetent and totally incapable of dealing with a real terror threat like ISIS. Political optics is the driving force in any decision or plan they put forth. It is their primary concern. We all know it. It is how they operate. Point in case: the open invitation to any bad guy to come on in via our southern border. Any reasonable person would make a secure border a high priority but Obama is more concerned with the political gains he will achieve if it is left open. This is a heinous policy that only a psychopath could embrace and is a gift to terrorists who want to recreate another 9/11. God help us. Something evil comes this way and we all know it.

Speaking of incompetence how about the recent video of Boehner playing with that wind up monkey on his desk???? Boehner get in front of a Bully Pulpit and tell the American people about how Obama-care is not working, ask where is our savings of $2,500 a yr.on Obama-care is, also tell how Dr. Ezekiel Emanuels Death Panel is kicking in this year on Medicare. and ask where are these illegal aliens who invaded our country? There is so much to say you can slam this Regime and his lapdog Democraps instead of playing with a toy.

If we do not take him at his word when he said that he will "side with the Muslims should the tide of war turn ugly", we will be postulating what his problem is from now until the day our power grids and communications and ability to buy food come down.

He told us what he is after when he bowed to Muslim heads of State.
He told us when he talked about redistributing wealth.
He told us when he said he would ignore the Constitution and use his "pen and phone".
He told us who he was when he played golf and yukked it up ten minutes after feigning sorrow over the beheading.
He told us when he destroyed our health care system.
He told us when he said he would destroy the coal industry.
He told us when he said, "My Muslim faith..."
He told us when he drew red lines he refused to act upon.
He told us when he deliberately reduced the American labor force by millions of jobs.
He told us who he was when he reached the 50% mark of Americans on welfare.
He told us that we "couldn´t keep our thermostats set to 72.

How many warnings did the Left need to realize this man is a clear and present danger to America?

He told us, he told us, he told us....

And what did the Left do? They didn´t believe his policies would be so devastating so they chose diversity over sensibility.

The Left, from the media, to the university, to the halls of Congress, to the street -- they are to blame, because the Right was right.

We warned everyone. Only the Left ignored the warnings and only the Left will be blamed.

The best thing a saboteur can do, when he is in a position of power, is refuse to act against the aggression of his secret allies, thus dooming the nation he has infiltrated.

Unless someone does something soon, night is falling on the West and America.

Advice from Mr. Obama: get a disaster supplies kit..

#9 is right to point out that such advice goes well beyond simple ineptness. It suggests an expectation..we are to get our kits while we wait for a disaster to happen.

Is this what Mr. Obama had in mind when he took an oath to "preserve, protect, and defend" our nation?

Obama Is Not The President

Haven´t you figured this out, yet? There´s a cabal running our Nation, not a President. Obama is window dressing. The first truly image-created figure to occupy the White House. He was sought out as the ultimate Chauncy Gardner. Obama is the not even as good as Hal Ashby´s movie ´Being There´ because he´s not there ..

Quit berating Obama. He´s not the President.

Wait and see, everyone. When the poop does hit the fan, and a major terrorist attack does massacre Americans (and it IS coming), the media machine will play along with the King and find a way to blame CONSERVATIVES for the whole thing. You see, the King is unable to protect us because the evil Tea Partiers and Republicans have hobbled him, bless his heart.

0bama has said the USA can absorb another terrorist attack. His indifference screams volumes. When that attack occurs he will use it as an excuse to militarize our police forces so that they "Are a civilian security force as large and as strong as our military". Remember, 0bama has done exactly everything he said he was going to do.

Interesting posts, most. This has been argued and debated to the point of ridiculousness and it really doesn´t matter now because the damage was done long ago.

Here´s the thing; stinky isn´t that smart. He´s the cute little monkey in a red vest holding out the tin cup while the fat smart guy grinding the organ collects the dough. And that´s it. That´s it.

stinky isn´t your enemy. he couldn´t care less about any of this. he´s so sick with self-love he´ll say or do anything to keep his narcissistic love boat floating, but he doesn´t mean anything by it. he´s just a cute little monkey doing the bidding of the rich fat slob jerking the chain.

If ever the "look a squirrel" bit was true, it´s true with stinky. he´s the face of the monster, yes -- but he´s not the monster.

I confess that I believed Obama to be an incompetent, nasty doofus. Now, having seen that everything he has done in the past six years has been detrimental to America´s survival (incompetence would occasionally get something right) I conclude that he is a malignant being. The nation must get shed of him.

True irony would be enjoyed if the next major terrorist attack took out Washington and the POTUS was, by some miracle, not on vacation. Then it wouldn´t really matter if he was an evil sociopath or just plain stupid, he would be gone. Then Mommy Jarrett would have to pull the curtain aside and reveal who was pulling the levers.

Dear Barry,

The date September 11 is approaching. For those versed in recent U.S. history, the date has a certain significance. Recommend you pull your head from your hiney and at least pretend to be a brave and virtuous man on this date. Maybe tell your SecDef and SecState to be at a higher state of readiness.

Obama doesn´t want to do anything about ISIS, isn´t going to do anything about ISIS and told that to ISIS with his "I have no strategy" comment. So will ISIS divert their attention from Iraq and Syria, turn it to terrorizing the US and force Obama to act against them? I don´t think so, they have two years of terrorizing and conquest guaranteed free of US opposition if they stay cool.

Of course there are other Islamist factions in the ME who don´t really want to see ISIS succeed because they want to be the ones who establish a caliphate (e.g. Iran and Syria). For them a terrorist attack in the US in the guise of ISIS to get the US involved in stopping ISIS would be a good idea. So we´re not out of the woods but I don´t think it´s ISIS we need to fear.

This is not incompetence. It is all by design. Its not just Obama and the Democrats. Just how different would the Republicans be? Who stays in the shadows and drives all of this? How much of the influence is foreign? How much of that influence is by people that are secretly at war with the United States?

Saw part of Obama´s labor day speech. Has any other president used such a hateful tone while talking? One lie after another too. We have another president claiming to have turned the economy around.

Have to wonder if we are witnessing the decline and collapse of this country. Too many people remain ignorant. Too many people are covering for the Obama gang.

Heard Diane Fienstein calling Obama´s foreign policy approach as ´cautious´, and wondered if she was covering for him. She knows better, but decides to prop him up.

Zippy thought he could do to Syria what he did in Libya. Assad was more forceful against the ´´rebels´´ which then drove into Iraq (seeking the path of least resistance). Zippy didn´t vet those rebels and didn´t foresee that a coalition of terrorist thugs under different names, but with common intent, would start their own movement.

Please forget Obama for a second. He´s not the problem. He´s the result, the symptom of a much bigger problem. It is us. The citizens of the United States are the problem. We elect our leaders and they are but a reflection of who and what we; how and what we think, nothing more.

Because of our willful worship of ourselves with disregard to anything bigger than ourselves, these ISIS bullies will easily kidnap one of your daughters or your wife or your young son (I suspect it will be someone rather well known and most likely a believer in Christ) from a mall, from a vacation spot somewhere in the world, from a hiking trail, pick one, and the next thing they´ll awake to is an orange suit on their knees in the desert being videotaped and saying things that are way out of character just before they are beheaded.

Your leaders will again do absolutely nothing. Ted Cruz will give a speech, Obama will send regrets to the family and hit the links. And of course cricket sounds will come the Muslim communities here in the United States and the rest of the "moderate" Muslim world.

After a few days, the nation will pine over another Robin Williams event and the naked idiot who stole porn pictures of some idiotic Hollywood ditz or some other such waste of time pop culture nonsense.

Obama is not the incompetent one. The voters are.

Next caller please.

USA Today, by Tom Vanden Brook and David Jackson    Original Article

WASHINGTON — As Obama administration officials sought to reassure Americans about efforts to contain Ebola in the wake of the first U.S. case, the military announced Friday that an additional 1,000 troops could be sent to West Africa to help fight the virus. And that number could go higher than that, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary. "I´m not going to put a floor or ceiling on this," Kirby said. President Obama initially ordered 3,000 troops to West Africa to help build hospitals, labs and treatment centers and provide logistics help. They are not going to treat Ebola

Ebola infecting five new people every

Ebola is spreading at the rate of five new cases an hour in Sierra Leone, according to figures released as world leaders and experts on disease control gathered in London to discuss the outbreak. The figures from Save the Children showed there were 765 new cases last week in the west African country alone, but only 327 hospital beds to treat infected patients. The charity said the “terrifying” rate of the spread of the disease was outstripping medical supplies and threatened a breakdown of Sierra Leone’s already fragile health system. The rate of spread of the deadly virus is projected

Liberian authorities said Thursday they will prosecute Dallas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan when he returns home for allegedly lying on his airport departure screening questionnaire about whether he had had contact with a person infected with the virus. The latest Ebola outbreak has killed 3,338 in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Senegal and Nigeria, the World Health Organization says, prompting several West African countries to closely monitor travelers in and out of the country. On the form obtained by the Associated Press and confirmed by a Liberian government official, Duncan answered "no" to questions about whether he had cared for

A human rights group reports that Islamic State militants in a Kurdish area of northern Syria have beheaded seven men and three women as part of an apparent campaign to quell resistance to the group. (Snip) Referring to President Obama´s speech on the treat of the militant group, Cantlie says: "It was all disappointingly predictable; America is good, the Islamic State is bad; and they will be defeated using aircraft and a motley collection of fighters on the ground.

An investigation was underway Tuesday after Iraqi military pilots mistakenly gave food, water and ammunition to enemy ISIS militants instead of their own soldiers, a senior security official and a brigadier told NBC News. The supplies were supposed to help besieged Iraqi army officers and soldiers who had been fighting Islamist extremists for a week in Saglawyah and the village of Al-Sijar in the country’s western province of Anbar. “Some pilots, instead of dropping these supplies over the area of the Iraqi army, threw it over the area that is controlled by ISIS fighters,” said Hakim Al-Zamili, a Sadrist lawmaker

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) made fresh advances in both Syria and Iraq on Monday, in defiance of the escalating United States-led bombing campaign against the jihadist group. For almost two months now, Tomahawk missiles and F22 Raptor jet fighters have bombarded the bases, strategic assets and front-line positions of Isil jihadists. But the group’s encroachment on Baghdad is steadily progressing and it is close to seizing a key Kurdish village on the Syria-Turkey border. Isil gunmen were reported to be six miles away from some points of Baghdad, and were holding their ground at a

Saad Mohammed, director of information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, said Saturday that Alton Nolen began worshipping at one of the group´s mosques in May and that he has seen him there several times since. He says Nolen wasn´t outgoing and that his behavior didn´t raise

BEIRUT - The leader of al-Qaida´s Syria affiliate vowed Sunday that his group would "use all possible means" to fight back against airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition and warned that the conflict would reach Western countries joining the alliance. (Snip) "This is what will cause the battle to be transported to the hearts of your own homes; because Muslims will not stand idly by and watch Muslims be bombed and killed in their countries, while you are safe on your countries. The price of war will not be paid by your leaders alone. You will pay the biggest price," he

WASHINGTON — The U.S. military is spending as much as $10 million per day on its new air war against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, a relative pittance compared with the hundreds of millions it spent fighting every day in Afghanistan in 2013. The costs in Iraq and Syria will escalate substantially if, as President Obama and Pentagon officials have said, the new war lasts for years, according to military analysts. Flying and maintaining warplanes requires a substantial investment in weaponry and personnel. "If airstrikes in Syria and Iraq continue for as long as the president predicts, they

Even as U.S. airstrikes continued to pound Islamic State positions in Syria, Kurdish fighters told FoxNews.com the terror organization was advancing on the Syrian town of Kobani, where as many as 400,000 residents and refugees are holed up. “Tell the world what is happening” said Rooz Bahjat, a senior Kurdish military officer said Wednesday by phone. “This could be a massacre if no help arrives.” Desperate field commanders in Kobani, also known as Ayn al-Arab, fear the worst unless help arrives soon, and note 70,000 refugees have already fled across the border into Turkey. Hundred of thousands more, including women,

Airstrikes in Syria against the extremist Khorasan group were prompted by planning for an “imminent” terror attack on U.S. soil, the Pentagon said. (Snip) Amid attention on the threat from Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Khorasan has emerged in recent weeks as a more immediate peril in the view of the U.S. intelligence community because it’s more focused on attacking America and Europe. The militant group is made up of a “network of seasoned al-Qaeda veterans” preparing to attack “United States and Western interests,” the Defense Department said in a statement. That “puts them at the top of groups threatening

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

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

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.

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

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,
