Choosing Politics Over Reality

March 3, 2015

Obama is absolutely desperate for a deal with Iran because his foreign policies have been disastrous and, politically, he needs something positive. His current “deal” with Iran is a politically expedient ruse to pass off as a foreign policy achievement, but it will not stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

The Obama deal supposedly deters Iran’s nuclear program for ten years, but Iran will have a nuclear weapon long before then because Iran doesn’t keep agreements – and everyone knows it. Iran has also, unequivocally, stated its reason for having a nuclear weapon: to eradicate Israel. Obama and many sycophantic Democrats remain willfully blind to this fact.

This is why Netanyahu is highly concerned and spoke directly to Congress. Ignored and insulted by Obama, he addressed Congress in the hope that they are not as mired in political nonsense as Obama is. Unfortunately, many are and reality will, once again, take a back seat to pure politics.

Nancy Pelosi was “near tears”, walking out offended that Netanyahu wasn’t toeing the Obama line. Reiterating Obama’s rhetoric that “all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear-armed Iran”, Pelosi arrogantly took listening off the table. She was “saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge” as if Netanyahu, who deals with Middle East violence daily, knows nothing of Iran. Pelosi, of course, displayed no embarrassment at her elite condescension while she venomously insulted Netanyahu.

Netanyahu knows more about foreign affairs, international negotiations, and hatred of Jews than Obama can ever imagine. He speaks with authority and deals with reality. Obama speaks with egotistical self-righteousness and deals with fantasy. Obama and his unconditional followers need to ridicule and silence Netanyahu to keep their self-esteem and their “dream” alive. Nothing else matters.

The world will now learn what a nuclear-armed Iran will do or what an Israel fighting for its survival will do. In either case, the Middle East will explode as another Obama “transformation” comes to fruition. It will join with many other failures to define his legacy.

Can We Survive This?

February 20, 2015

ISIS continues to grow in number and power, committing even more horrendous atrocities as it takes over more territory in the Middle East. In response, the Obama administration is ramping up its politically correct agenda of denial.

A White House spokesman said there is no particular “vulnerable community” prone to producing radical violence so they are looking to see how they can find those who are susceptible to recruitment to violence, adding that Muslims aren’t being targeted in this search. This fear of offending Muslims has become a driver for Obama and it hampers all administration efforts to fight terrorism.

State Department spokesperson Marie Harf said “we cannot win this war by killing them” and we need to go after the root cause such as “a lack of opportunity for jobs”. When challenged, Harf put on elitist airs and insulted the intelligence of critics saying her comments were too nuanced for them to understand.

This academic drivel is useless against the evil and violence of ISIS and it is a pitiful excuse for inaction. Obama’s distaste for U.S. military might was nurtured during his early association with radicals and it fueled his anti-America apology tour when elected. His only concern is social engineering and he tries to ignore threats rather than deal with them.

In the past, Obama told us that victory was not a goal in Afghanistan and that he didn’t even like the word “victory”. His inaction concerning ISIS, therefore, should not be a surprise, but the depth of his denial is astounding and his total immersion in political correctness has gone far beyond foolishness. Shunning victory can only result in defeat, and we are being defeated.

This all makes the latest Gallup poll finding Obama’s job approval at 50% mystifying and frightening, especially since a CNN poll found that 57% disapprove of his handling of ISIS. Is it really possible that more than half the people believe ISIS terrorism is a real threat but find Obama’s personal “transformation of America” more important – and acceptable?

If so, survival of this country is questionable.

Wrong…Wrong…and Wrong Again

February 16, 2015

The U.S. embassy in Yemen is closing as turmoil in the country increases and security deteriorates. This is the same Yemen that President Obama held up last September as a successful model for fighting ISIS, the same ISIS he compared to a “JV team” a little over a year ago.

Obama is now seeking war powers from Congress to help in the fight against ISIS. His premature promise not to put boots on the ground (where there were already boots on the ground) is starting to look a lot like his promise of keeping your doctor and your health insurance plan. He is now considering “limited” ground combat operations against ISIS. Zero has turned into limited – and this is far from over.

He gave terrorists advance notice of when he was going to pull out of Iraq and then, ignoring military advice, pulled all of our troops out and proclaimed the war in Iraq to be over. As predicted, terrorists immediately began taking over Iraq. Obama denied this and began a victory dance over Osama bin Laden’s death and his self-proclaimed decimation of Al Qaeda, the same Al Qaeda that has tripled attacks since 2010 and just now seized an army base in Yemen.

In 2012, President Obama set the use of chemical weapons as a “red line” for using military force in Syria and then did absolutely nothing when chemical weapons were used. Later, in 2013, he tried to say he never set that red line in the first place, blaming the “world” for setting it. It is clear he set it and reneged, setting the stage for ISIS to grow into the world threat it has become.

This president has been horribly wrong on everything concerning the Middle East and terrorism. How wrong does he have to be for supporters and the media to hold him accountable and seriously question his leadership? How much more damage can he do while we wait for that to happen?

Obamigration Update

February 10, 2015

President Obama, using executive orders and presidential memoranda, is fully engaged in changing, ignoring, and creating immigration laws as he sees fit. He has essentially given millions of illegal aliens immunity from deportation and, as a result, many more are flooding our border to take part in Obamigration.

Efforts to seal our border are practically non-existent and rather than trying to protect our country from the danger of criminals entering illegally, Homeland Security is setting up hotlines to help protect illegal immigrants who believe their rights have been violated. The Mexican government is doing its part by having its consulates in the U.S. issue birth certificates to Mexican citizens to help them squeeze whatever they can from our government.

It is not just Mexicans and South Americans coming here illegally. Since 2010, there has also been a 217% increase in Cubans crossing through our southern border because it is much easier and safer than any ocean passage. This will, no doubt, increase further due to president Obama’s normalizing relations with Cuba. Fanatic Islamic terrorists, too, are well aware of our porous southern border but that, as well as their very existence, is being denied.

As more Americans become alarmed, Obama has accelerated rather than curbed his personal immigration plan. His newest plan will allow illegals here to bring their children, their adult children, their grandchildren and even step-parents into the United States. It will also allow current unmarried illegals to marry someone in Central America then sponsor them for US citizenship.

The icing on Obama’s amnesty cake will come via the IRS. Illegal aliens benefiting from Obama’s amnesty plan will receive tax credits for as many as three years that they worked here illegally. In other words, they will not only be allowed to stay and get fast-tracked for American citizenship, they will be rewarded for having been here illegally.

Welcome to the “transformation of America”. You are obviously a racist if you do not like it.

U.S. Begging Iran

February 5, 2015

Everything Obama does is driven by politics and his personal, idealistic agenda, not the good of the country. His weak foreign policies are no exception, therefore, an article in the Washington Free Beacon (thanks to Drudge for pointing it out) claiming the administration is “begging” Iran to sign a nuclear deal sounds true – and pathetic. Anger is growing at U.S. concessions and delays allowing Iran to continue its nuclear program unimpeded, so Obama’s desperation to sign a deal, any deal, has to be at its peak.

From the Washington Free Beacon

A top Iranian military leader claims that U.S. officials have been “begging us” to sign a nuclear deal during closed door negotiations with Tehran…American officials routinely “plea” with Iran in talks and the United States is negotiating from a position of weakness…The military leader’s remarks appear to jibe with new reports that the United States is conceding ground to Iran in talks and will now allow it to “keep much of its uranium-enriching technology”.

“Iran feels the administration needs the deal, and this belief is supported by the way the administration is acting,” said Saeed Ghasseminejad, an Iranian dissident…America’s “hostility toward its traditional allies in the region, Israel and Saudi Arabia, is at its historical peak…“Iran feels as long as the negotiation is going on, it has a green light to do whatever it wants in the region, so why should they bother to sign a deal?”… While U.S. officials have claimed multiple times in recent months that progress is being made in the talks, Iranian officials deny that this is the case…

PC Idiotic Denial

January 15, 2015

Aided by politically correct useful idiots, radical Islamists are winning their war of terror. While President Obama and the liberal media remain terrorized over labeling the killers “radical Islamists”, saner people around the world are becoming more terrorized by the increasing denial on display.

Even after al Qaeda proudly claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks, blame continues to be spread to everyone but Islamic terrorists. Israel is being blamed by former president Jimmy Carter; Abu Ghraib is being blamed by David Rothkopf of Foreign Policy magazine; the President of Turkey is blaming French security forces; Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is blaming Western leaders; University of London professor Gilbert Achcar is blaming the US; and, of course, some French Muslims are blaming “shape-shifting Jews”.

One would think that France’s tough gun laws would keep the anti-gun crowd on the sidelines in the wake of the Paris attack, but Hollywood’s Liam Neeson couldn’t help himself. He took this opportunity to come out screaming about “too many guns out there”. He also refused to accept that violence in movies has any influence violence in society. Liam is bathed in PC denial on many levels.

CNN unconditionally surrendered to the terrorists without a fight by refusing to show the latest cover of Charlie Hebdo, declaring: “…it is our policy not to show potentially offensive images of the prophet”. CNN has no problems with the infamous “piss Christ” or cartoons ridiculing Jewish people. It’s just the prophet they fear offending. The recent religious ruling from a Saudi cleric forbidding the building of snowmen (because they are anti-Islamic) will surely bring more protective pixelating from CNN.

Idiotic PC adherents fear offending Muslims much more than they fear terrorist attacks. The Obamedia continually frets over it and tries hard to deny radical Islamists have any association with Islam. With protection such as this, is it any wonder terrorists are winning?

Politically Correct Terror

January 10, 2015

Reporting on the Paris terrorist attack, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, wallowing in self-righteous political correctness, referred to the perpetrators as “activists”. One could almost sense her disappointment that France’s strict gun laws stopped her from being able to blame the attack on guns rather than “activists”.

Amanpour is not the only one refusing to give up a politically correct posture in the face of terror. With almost all terrorists proclaiming Islam to be their motivation and quoting the Koran as they slaughter innocent people, many in the mainstream media continue to warn us not to mention Islam when talking about terror attacks. It is the first thing, if not the only thing, many worry about after every attack.

If the Muslim world doesn’t like being branded as terrorists, they need to do something about it instead of just being offended. Where are the protests against terrorists from all those peaceful Muslims? Why has there been no Million Muslim March against terrorism in Washington, DC? Why do we only hear outrage from the Muslim community when they are offended by so-called “Islamaphobia”?

It is impossible to fight terrorism when so many useless fools continue to fear offending those who want to kill us. European countries such as France allow Muslim immigrants to set up stand-alone Muslim communities with their own Sharia law rather than dare offend them with European laws. Our own president seems more concerned about offending Islam than the releasing of murderous terrorists from prison.

It is tiring to continually be told that the majority of Muslims are peace loving people and that the religion of Islam is a peaceful religion – and then be attacked by Muslims in the name of that peaceful religion. Political correctness is terrorizing the entire world and paralyzing us against “activists” engaged in killing us. These “activists” are winning a war that far too many won’t even admit we are engaged in. We need to kill political correctness because it is certainly killing us.

Stupid Racial Agenda

December 30, 2014

By making race monger Al Sharpton his go-to guy, president Obama has encouraged racial hostilities in the country. His recent claim that race relations are better now than when he took office is just more self-serving rhetoric having no basis in reality. The stupidity of Obama, de Blasio, and other so-called “leaders” aligning with Sharpton has produced a top-down, anti-police atmosphere resulting in two policemen being executed in NY City.

The police in NY City feel abandoned by Mayor de Blasio and now face an increasingly hostile black community. The danger facing policeman in NY City has always been high but de Blasio’s foolish actions have made it worse and the police are responding in ways that will put us all in danger.

Concerned for their personal safety and feeling under attack from the community and the government, police in the city are turning a blind eye to minor crimes. Delayed response times and lack of summonses have resulted from de Blasio’s foolishness and morale is at an all-time low in the police force. One can expect crime to increase in NY City as it becomes obvious to all that police response has eroded.

The execution style killing of the two police officers in NY City has been mimicked in a thwarted attempt in North Carolina and can be expected to occur in other cities across the country. Every police shooting is now being protested as police brutality regardless of the circumstances and it is only a matter of time before other police departments begin to delay response times or not respond at all.

Our only line of defense against runaway crime and chaos in the streets has been compromised by a stupid racial agenda encouraged by Obama. Leadership from the White House on many issues has become non-existent but this goes beyond lack of leadership. This agenda seems to sanction rioting, violence, and racial unrest – and it is dangerous.

Waterboarding?

December 11, 2014

ISIS death squads have been on a rampage viciously killing women, children, and anyone who doesn’t bend to their will. They strap bombs to innocent children and use them as weapons. They have proudly published videos of the beheading of innocent Americans and they routinely ask, and receive, ransoms for captured European citizens, killing them brutally if refused.

Now, ISIS is trying to sell the remains of beheaded journalist James Foley to his parents or the US government for one million dollars. They are calling this horrific ransom attempt an “act of mercy” and a “humanity case”.

These are the “Islamic fundamentalists” the world is up against. These are the bastards that blind, ignorant fools refuse to call “terrorists”, insisting on using the innocuous term “militants” for politically correct reasons. These are the ones we’re supposed to try to understand.

And here, in the good old USA, we’re beating ourselves up, proudly proclaiming to the world how terrible we are and apologizing to all because we dared to waterboard one of these beasts in an effort to stop American citizens from being slaughtered? We’re the ones the far-left idiots living right here in this country condemn and have no qualms about calling terrorists. We’re the ones living in fear that waterboarding will make us as brutal and uncivilized as them while we keep sending drones, hoping to kill someone important.

We are living in a fantasy world where we are always the good guy and the good guy always wins. Meanwhile, our enemies are laughing at us and patiently awaiting the victory that our foolishness is sure to bring their way. We proudly accept allowing hundreds of the guilty to go free as long as we don’t wrongly convict one innocent and we are willing to allow thousands of innocents to be killed rather than waterboard one terrorist.

What are we transforming into?

Fool Me Once…

December 10, 2014

President Obama is seeking more discretionary power to wage war as he sees fit. After campaigning to end the war in Iraq, prematurely pulling all our troops out against military advice, and promising not to put “boots on the ground”, he now wants to increase his personal use of military power.

This president has a history of lying (e.g.“if you like your doctor…); a history of acting alone (e.g. executive order for illegals, cancelling Obamacare rules); a history of ignoring the law (e.g. directing ICE not to deport illegals); a history of ignoring the Pentagon (pulling all troops out of Iraq); and a history of reneging on promises (e.g. Immigration reform in first term, transparency, shovel-ready projects, closing GITMO, etc.). It would behoove Congress to remember the age-old idiom: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.”

Obama has fooled the American public and Congress over and over and he has arrogantly assumed more power than any president was ever meant to have. He has displayed a leftist distaste for the military by shunning military advice, apologizing to the world for past military involvement, and taking military decisions away from the Pentagon. He has assumed personal control over drone use and drone targeting and is now adding “boots on the ground” to the 3500 already there as if never having vowed not to.

Obama has been an egotistical, runaway train doing whatever he wants whenever he wants while refusing to take responsibility for anything. We will spend years trying to recover from the policies and precedents he set in place. It would be shameful beyond belief to grant him more power, especially military power.

Almost everything from Obama and his administration has been s**t masquerading as chocolate.  What could possibly go wrong by giving him more power?
