Lies of Our Leaders - Misinformation For The Dumb Masses

Apparently I and the majority of Americans are completely stupid imbeciles who do not have one bit of understanding as to finances or anything else if we are in any disagreement with the leftist leaning clown in the White House. Now I realize of course that as a Conservative, I am automatically labeled as brain dead, stupid, hateful and racist, not necessarily in that order. None the less, seeing that I do know how to read, one would think I am smart enough to figure things out if given the facts. But oh no! Comrade Obama says I and others are in fact brain dead non thinking morons! What else am I supposed to think after seeing (and hearing in his own words) the incredible line of bullshit uttered below! (From various sources):

“In a speech at the Business Roundtable headquarters in Washington, D.C., Obama dismissed concerns about raising the debt ceiling by noting that it’d been done so many times in the past:

“Now, this debt ceiling — I just want to remind people in case you haven’t been keeping up — raising the debt ceiling, which has been done over a hundred times, does not increase our debt; it does not somehow promote profligacy. All it does is it says you got to pay the bills that you’ve already racked up, Congress. It’s a basic function of making sure that the full faith and credit of the United States is preserved.”

Obama went on to suggest that “the average person” mistakenly thinks that raising the debt ceiling means the U.S. is racking up more debt.

“This is not a banana republic,” the president said of the possibility the U.S. might have to default. “We don’t run out on our tab. We just can’t not pay our bills.”

The US government borrows 43 cents on every dollar it spends. Obama acts like dictator-lite. We have, depending on the source, $75-180 trillion in unfunded liabilities.”

Well, seeing President “Head Up His Ass” feels we are ignorant if we think raising the debt limit does in fact raise the debt, one must really question then candidate “Comrade Obama” as to his feelings about that very same debt limit. And please note as to the below, I haven’t included the moronic comments he uttered about this in remarks disparaging President Bush as to the same debt limit.

From Newsbusters:

Boehner press secy @Brendan_Buck reminds that in 2006, Senator Obama was whistling a different tune about raising the Debt Limit. — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
In remarks on the Senate Floor on March 16, 2006, Sen. Obama said the need to raise the Debt Limit was "a sign of leadership failure." — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
Sen Obama said the need to raise the Debt Limit was another reflection of the "Government's reckless fiscal policies." — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
The, Sen Obama also denounced the rising National Debt as "a hidden domestic enemy" robbing cities & states of "critical investments." — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
Denouncing the ever-increasing National Debt, then-Sen. Obama told the Senate he would oppose an increase in the Debt Limit. — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013

Of course, since the policies of this leftist administration have worked so well, I have to assume I am also far too dense to question as to why the economy is still in recession (no matter what the lying sacks of crap say, it is) when the cold hard facts point to that fact.

“During the four years that marked President Barack Obama’s first term in office, the real median income of American households dropped by $2,627 and the number of people in poverty increased by approximately 6,667,000, according to data released today by the Census Bureau.
The record total of approximately 46,496,000 people in the United States who are now in poverty, according to the Census Bureau, is more than twice the population of Syria, which, according to the CIA, has 22,457,336 people.

In 2008, the year Obama was elected, real median household income in the United States was $53,644 according to the Census Bureau. In 2012, the last full year of Obama’s first term, median household income was $51,017. Thus, real median household income dropped $2,627—or 4.89 percent—from 2008 to 2012.”

And of course, I sure as hell could never understand the facts behind the unemployment figures. After all, the “brilliant” (that’s what Nancy says he is. Who am I to argue with a ding bat like her? After all, I’m just a dumb conservative) occupant of the White House and his propagandists say everything is so much better! So I’m sure I’m misinterpreting the cold hard facts that point to an unemployment rate well over 14.5%. After all, someone who believes his own lies wouldn’t lie to us would he? Yet, check out the below I lifted from Virtual Mirage. And please note, these figures are out there in the open for all to see if they want to. The problem is like any good dictator, Comrade Obama would rather tell the lie over and over until it is taken as the truth, stupid truth seeking people be damned.

• Some 90.5 million Americans are now out of the labor force, with almost a third of a million leaving in July alone and nearly 10 million workers departing since Obama took office. Meanwhile, 115,000 fewer Americans were employed in August than in July.

• The "good news" of a dip in unemployment from 7.4% in July to 7.3% in August turns out to be a mirage. It was due to a decline of 312,000 in the workforce. Without that, joblessness would have risen to 7.5%.
• Add the number of unemployed to part-timers who want full-time work and those who have given up looking, then the real unemployment rate is 13.7%.

• At 63.2%, the labor force participation rate is now at the lowest since 1978. And the 69.5% for men is an all-time low.

• Unemployment among blacks, Obama's most loyal supporters, rose to 13% from 12.6%.

• Job growth over the last six months has averaged 160,000 a month. At this rate, it'll take until mid-2024 to return to 2007's pre-recession level. (doesn’t include the twice as many people that have left the work force due to no jobs. Seems like net job loss to me, but then what do I know. I’m too dumb to understand the brilliance of our exalted leader)

Dumbass that I am let me ask a few questions here. After all, according to the great God Obama, I’m far too dense to understand anything other than His Majesty’s anal mutterings as to any subject that is beyond the understanding of this dumb citizen. As he would never lie to us, let me just expound on some things that are quite baffling to us brain dead conservatives. And please note here. As a dumb conservative, it is my feeling if one of my employees or assistants openly lies, the lie is mine if I do not disown it.  Of course, I must remember that in the case of any dictator and Comrade Obama in particular, there is no responsibility, only finger pointing and blame aimed at those who disagree.
1: Fast and Furious gun running. The Attorney General and others in the administration openly lied and committed perjury in front of investigative panels. Mexican civilians and even worse, an American Border Patrol Agent were killed by these weapons, yet the Administration, and thus in my eyes, the President LIED about it! People lied and people died! Surely it can’t be the responsibility of Chairman Obama. After all, he wouldn’t lie or talk down to his subjects.
2: Syria and the Red Line he swears he never drew. Enough said there.
3: The complete fabrication of facts relating to the employment situation as mentioned above can’t be a lie, can it?
4: Benghazi: The State Department, from Hillary on down lied. Der Fuher’s personal Rep, Susan Rice lied about it. And even the President fed us a line of shit about it. Just last week, Kerry says he will not allow survivors to testify before a House committee investigating it. Yet, our revered leader headed for Vegas without a second thought about his Murdered ambassador. And of course as Commander in chief, he wouldn’t lie to us about his actions, would he?   
5: Seal Team Six and the ambush that killed: This is one that has been pushed under the rug by Obama’s minions, but was brought back into my focus just this morning by Skook over at Flopping Aces:
“We now know, the attack on SEAL Team Six was a carefully orchestrated ambush from three sides by guerrillas. The statement issued by our government was a blatant lie, an attempt to cover-up a tragic betrayal.
The government insisted that the bodies were burned beyond recognition and had the group cremated; however, Charles Strange, whose son, Michael was killed in the ambush, says he has viewed photos of the crash site. Mr. Strange, in an interview:

“I saw Mike’s dead body. It was clearly recognizable. He was clutching his gun. He wasn’t burned to a crisp. Why did they cremate my boy? They didn’t need to do that. Something’s not right.”
The Chinook’s black box was never found; apparently, it was washed away in a flash flood, according to our government, but there is a slight problem, fl ash floods in this area are extremely rare, almost unheard of in this particular area.

There are more questions to be answered: why didn’t the team have aerial back-up? A standard operational procedure when deploying special forces.

Why were the seven Afghan soldiers who boarded the Chinook with the SEALs not the same ones who were on the flight manifest, serious breach of protocol. Were these Afghan suicide bombers? Were they there to sabotage the raid?”

Again, seeing our dear leader is Commander in Chief, he wouldn’t mislead we dummies out here, would he? Of course, being a dumb conservative, I in fact have no right to ask questions of the lying sacks of shit that comprise our government (Left or right, the lies and deceit are epidemic and destroying this country and of course we as citizens are not supposed to demand accountability or responsibility from these scum).
Yet, the facts speak for themselves. While lying politicians is not a new invention of our minds by any stretch of our imaginations, I for one have never in my life seen a more open disdain displayed by our elected leaders towards the citizenry. If one questions policies that are Anti-American and destructive to say the least, we are labeled haters, racists or according to Homeland Security, Terrorist Risks. Yet, we’re supposed to sit here and nod our heads reverently when the President openly lies to protect his phony ass.
And as I mentioned in my earlier post, he has loony tunes like Diane Feinstein and so forth to cover his sorry ass and come up with bullshit like below! After all, we can’t have the truth get in the way of the lies!

“California Senator Dianne Feinstein has proposed an amendment to the Media Shield Law that would ignore the protection afforded by the First Amendment and would limit the law’s protection only to “real reporters,” not bloggers and other upstart alternative media types.  Lifted from the Daily Smug

Our rights are being stripped from us and our country destroyed from within as far too many people accept the brainwashing lies of this President and his lackeys. We either stand up and fight it or suffer the fate of every Socialist Commie type country of the past and present. It’s so sad how few in the Press will actually do their jobs as journalists and question the overt lies and misinformation that comes from their leaders. We now have overt propaganda in the guise of journalism, facts be damned. When are we going to wake up?

My Home City Is Dying While The Moron In Chief Pays It Lip Service

Before I take off on my tangent of the week, I want to remind everyone out there I and everyone has the right to my opinions and free speech. This is how I feel and no one has to like it anymore than I have to like what anyone else says or writes. But it is my and their right to say it! That is the law of this land! Yet, we have this!  

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has proposed an amendment to the Media Shield Law that would ignore the protection afforded by the First Amendment and would limit the law’s protection only to “real reporters,” not bloggers and other upstart alternative media types.  Lifted fom the Daily Smug

Just who in the hell dies this woman think she is? Good God! Between her and the lying sacks of crap in the administration who want every voice of dissent silenced, where is the outcry from the population of this country? When did we give up our right to Free Speech?  I’ll rot in hell before I’ll stop commenting on the Anti-American bullshit coming from our government! This has to stop now! 

Now onto my main point of the day, beginning with Judge Jeannine who as usual once again hits the nail on the head as to the issues of today and in turn she mentions my topic of the day. Gotta love her!

While Obama “consoles” (which means taking political shots at legal gun owners) about the Navy base shootings, he is as usual completely silent as to the carnage in his home city. Now of course one should be surprised at this. After all, having to first admit to the black on black carnage as well as then damning it would be against the agenda of our color blind leader. Well, last night (Saturday) the ignoramus finally commented on the Chicago disaster. Of course as it was before the Congressional Black Caucus, his comments as usual were the same asinine Bullshit. “We have to push gun control”  “Oh, by the way all of this is the fault of those nasty ass Republicans who are pushing the minorities into poverty and violence with their fiscal policies”

Sorry, folks, but that is all I got out of the speech last night. As he did the other day while the madman was shooting up the Navy base in D.C., a quick mention of his want to disarm honest Americans to “get the arms out of the hands of the criminals” (can anyone tell me with a straight face that disarming the majority of the populace keep the gangs and so forth from having guns?).

As such, I just want to make sure I have this straight. Because a city with some of the strictest gun laws in the land cannot keep them from the criminals, the rest of the population should disarm themselves so as to allow the criminal element (as well as the leftist scum political class that wants complete control over us) to continue as is? Have I got this right? The gangs have ruled Chicago and other cities for years! And even now, we do not see one word from the Moron in Chief as to the real cause of these problems. He and others will sure go after anyone who comments on it though! When and if someone says or does anything that is against the policies or opinions of this nimrod we get garbage like this: “They’re not focused on you,” the president told about 2,000 Ford autoworkers gathered on the floor of the stamping plant. “They’re focused on politics. They’re focused on trying to mess with me.”  Blame everyone and everything other than his asinine policies or stances.

(BTW: “They’re focused on trying to mess with me.” To me that seems racist in nature, but one should not be surprised as it comes from the leading race baiter of them all. If he wasn’t, he would stand up as Bill Cosby and others have to what is going on in the black community rather than spitting out his usual crap!
Below from various sources:
“Three people were killed and 23 (over the course of two days) wounded in the latest spate of violence to hit Chicago.”

“Police say the park shootings stem from an on-going dispute between the Gangster Disciples and the Black P Stone Nation gang. Chicago Alderman Willie Cochran told the Chicago Sun-Times that police have talked to several people but had made no arrests.”

“Senseless and brazen acts of violence have no place in Chicago and betray all that we stand for,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Friday. “The perpetrators of this crime will be brought to justice and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I encourage everyone in the community to step forward with any information and everyone in Chicago to continue their individual efforts to build stronger communities where violence has no place.”

“Gov. Pat Quinn is ready to talk with Mayor Rahm Emanuel about bringing in reinforcements from the Illinois State Police to help stem the violence in Chicago, according to a spokeswoman for the governor.”

Being from Chicago, I am fed up not only with the cavalier attitude of our esteemed leader and his apparently brain dead wife as to the rampant violence there, but I also have to ask again where is the outrage from the so called black leaders? Their people are killing their people. The Mayor and the rest of the yoyos are crying this has to end. The mayor (choke, choke) says these people will be brought to justice. Who in the hell is he kidding? Actually go after the gangs? In the movie Airplane, there was this great seatbelt sign that said “incredible bullshit” I rest my case.

Moron Alert! No one in the areas where gang activity is rampant (and this includes other cities) has the balls to go after the gang bangers! The cops in many cases are out armed. Their hands are tied by bullshit (and yes, I am being crass today) political correctness as well as no stomach to do whatever it takes to rid our streets of the scum that is the gangs. They operate openly and brazenly because they can. This behavior has been ignored and thus approved by the powers that be. And heaven forbid the poor fellow that defends himself from this scum! He’ll go to jail long before the murders will!

The community organizer masquerading as a President is just another symptom of the degradation of our cities and the poor (in this case the black) neighborhoods of this country. Instead of leadership, he and his wife ignore it! Until the Jesses, Sharptons and this sad excuse of a President and his loony tune followers decide to fight fire with fire, the carnage will continue. As I mention above, Bill Cosby and others for years have warned of this and the leftists all berate those who leave the reservation.  The scorn and hate aimed at Bill Cosby and others for voicing a sane opinion as to the root causes of the problems in the inner city is bad. But to have the President of the United States continue to pay lip service to the race hustlers and so forth and basically keep his mouth shut not only as to the problems, but in not coming to the defense of the Bill Cosbys of the world is disgusting!  To refuse to address and combat the reality that is gang violence and so forth is unfathomable. And at what cost folks? At what cost?  Chicago is beginning to look like the Detroit depicted in Robocop! When will we stand up and stop it?

Charles Krauthammer and Judge Jeannine Nail it as to Comrade Obama

We now have an "agreement" with Russia, those wonderful folks who are in fact helping to supply the CW's to Syria, which in turn Syria has signed onto. Basically if i understand it correctly, they will turn over the CW's starting in November? So in the end, if I see this correctly, Putin saves Assad and makes the so called leader of the free world look like a certifiable jackass.Comrade Obama, grateful to his puppet master for bailing him out of the morass he himself created now takes credit for "great diplomacy" and scaring the bejabbers out of Assad. Then of course, he heads for the golf course. I'm not quite sure though how much national business gets done with two hacks from ESPN, but that's another issue.

Rather than go off on one of my rants, here's a few things from this last few days from Charles Krauthammer. As usual, he is right on with his comments as to the Putin's puppet.

“So much for Obama’s repeated insistence that Assad must go. Indeed, Putin has openly demanded that any negotiation be conditioned on a U.S. commitment to forswear the use of force against Assad. On Thursday, Assad repeated that demand, warning that without an American pledge not to attack and not to arm the rebels, his government would agree to nothing.

This would abolish the very possibility of America tilting the order of battle in a Syrian war that Assad is now winning thanks to Russian arms, Iranian advisers and Lebanese Hezbollah shock troops. Putin thus assures the survival of his Syrian client and the continued ascendancy of the anti-Western Iranian bloc.
And what does America get? Obama saves face.”
Some deal."

Not long after he said that, the WSJ reported what of course has been obvious to any moron other than our President and his Sec. of State:

"A secretive Syrian military unit has been moving stocks of poison gases and munitions to as many as 50 sites to make them harder for the U.S. to track, American and Middle Eastern officials said on Thursday.

The movements of chemical weapons by Syria's elite Unit 450 could complicate any U.S. bombing campaign in Syria over its chemical attacks, the officials told The Wall Street Journal .

Further, the activity raises questions about the implementation of a Russian proposal that calls for the regime to surrender control of its stockpiles, they said."

And let's end with Charles once again as he nails it as to the unbelievable B.S. being spouted trying to give Comrade Obama all the credit:

 "But the fact is that the idea that you guys are spinning from the White House that it was the threat of the use of force that scared Putin into offering this; if so, he would have offered a week ago or two weeks ago when it really appeared imminent.

When did he offer it? Within hours after there was a gaffe by our Secretary of State, the Laurel to Obama's Hardy, who said, “Well, you know, if you get rid of his weapons.” They saw an opening. They know that there is no way he’ll dismantle his weapons, but it would stop any attempt to get rid of Assad. Putin has a single objective: he wants Assad in place - keep him in place, and win the war. And that he’s achieving."

Oh, and let's not forget that according to reports, we are "arming the rebels" and the flow of weapons to them has increased. It's so wonderful to know we are now allies with the very people who flew planes into the WTC and Pentagon among other things!

And of course, let me once again close with Judge Jeannine. sometimes I think she reads my mind before she does her opening statements, but as usual, she hits a grand slam.

Thoughts On Obomba's Syrian Fiasco

The President and his lackeys are on the “offensive”, doing their best to use an unethical, probably illegal and certainly asinine military action against Syria and Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons to save his sorry assed legacy, or is it his credibility? Whatever the case one has to wonder how much of this is nothing more than a ruse to keep attention away from the upcoming budget battles, the implementation of the Socialist Obamacare, the regression of race relations by an administration that apparently tends to wallow in racial hatred and of course the complete collapse of respect for the U.S. by the world, something this administration seems hell bent to accomplish.

After all, this is an administration that has openly lied about the Fast and Furious gun running, the Benghazi murders and so forth (and let’s not forget the lies like the job growth lie! 300,000 people left the work force so are not counted anymore and only 166,000 jobs supposedly created. My math says net job loss of 136,000). Forget credibility as we all know there isn’t any of that in this administration. This President is willing to start a war for his radical Muslim buddies and in turn throw Israel and God knows who else under the bus and put them even further in harm’s way. The world has no respect for us now and the Muslim Brotherhoods and so forth this President so clearly wants in power senses not only our weakness, but in fact smells the blood in the water. And who are these wonderful rebels this clown supports? How about this little item to explain?

“Al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria have beheaded all 24 Syrian passengers traveling from Tartus to Ras al-Ain in northeast of Syria, among them a mother and a 40-day old infant. 
Gunmen from the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and Levant stopped the bus on the road in Talkalakh and killed everyone before setting the bus on fire.

According to media reports, the attack was carried out because the passengers who were from three different villages in Ras al-Ain, supported anti-terrorist Kurdish groups which were formed recently to defend Kurdish population against anti-Syria terrorists.
Bodies of the mother and her 40-day old infant were also seen among the dead, which were recognized by their relatives.

Syrian Kurdish leader Saleh Muslim warned on Friday that the Kurd minority is facing an ethnic cleansing by al-Qaeda terrorists.”

The above was followed up by Rueters:
ISTANBUL | Sun Sep 1, 2013 3:51pm EDT
(Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has moved military equipment and personnel to civilian areas and put prisoners in military sites as human shields against any Western air strikes, the opposition said on Sunday.
The Istanbul-based opposition coalition said rockets, Scud missiles and launchers as well as soldiers had been moved to locations including schools, university dormitories and government buildings inside cities.
"Reports from inside Syria confirm that Assad has (also)ordered detainees to be moved to military targets and to be used as human shields against possible Western air strikes," the opposition coalition said in a statement.

As I have said many times, there are people who can articulate much better than I can as to this horse’s ass we call a President, so here we go, starting with one of my favorites, Judge Jeannine!

We all know the President in a speech drew a red line as to Syria a year ago. We have video proof, yet according to him and his lackeys, what we saw and heard we in fact did not see and hear! The other day, after dithering around and claiming he can do what the hell he wants but will ask Congress first (and anyone who thinks for one moment this is not anything else but an action to take the responsibility from his sorry ass actions and shuck it off on everyone else so the blame doesn’t tarnish his legacy is off in Never Never Land) he then after being asked a question delivered one of the biggest lines of bullshit I have ever seen from any politician in my life as below (Note: My snide comments in parentheses):

PRESIDENT OBAMA:” Let me unpack the question. First of all, I didn’t set a red line.(August 12th video of me saying that? Must be doctored. After all, everyone else lies to their teeth, not me!) The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world’s population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war. Congress(You know, thise assholes who refuse to back my Muslim loving hard core Socialist agenda. Don’t blame me!) set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line when it indicated that in a piece of legislation titled the Syria Accountability Act that some of the horrendous thing that are happening on the ground there need to be answered for. And so, when I said, in a press conference, that my calculus about what’s happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming consensus of humanity says is wrong, that wasn’t something I just kind of made up. I didn’t pluck it out of thin air. There was a reason for it (yeah, to put the blame squarely where it belongs, anywhere else but on my table). That’s point number one. Point number two, my credibility (After all, you’ve all fallen for the lies and bullshit for the last five years. Why stop now?) is not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line. And America and Congress’ credibility (don’t you see? The blame as usual has to go to those who were here before me!) is on the line because we give lip service to the notion that these international norms are important.”

Putin for all practical purposes spit in whiney Obama’s face. The Brits jumped ship. The radicals are threatening attacks on all fronts. So called experts while railing for the need to attack Syria also acknowledge the radicals “will in fact carry out hostile actions because they do not give one damn about what the U.S. thinks or does. The hatred is real and the danger is obvious. And of course, the economical ramifications of such actions (and I’m not even addressing the cost of the hardware, etc. What about the huge spike in oil that is coming?) are being steadfastly ignored.

Once Obomba (I love that designation for the Nobel Peace Prize winner, you know the one that hadn’t done a damn thing to earn it?) decided to “possibly defer to Congress”, the shit really started to hit the fan. Within in a day or so, I came across the following, something even an ignoramus such as Obomba should have been able to figure out if he had paid any attention at all to anything other than his golf and legacy. To paraphrase from Casablanca, Shocking! You’re moving your weapons and military assets to civilian areas!Note below:

“The main Western-backed opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, said the army moved troops as well as rocket launchers, artillery and other heavy weapons inside residential neighborhoods in cities nationwide. The coalition said Assad ordered detainees to be moved to military targets for use as human shields against U.S. strikes.

Three Damascus residents, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals, confirmed such movements.

One man said two members of the elite Republican Guards broke into an empty house he owns, showing him an official paper stating they were authorized to do so because Syria is at war. He said he bribed the soldiers and they left. A woman in another area said soldiers moved into a school next to her house and she was terrified”

I include below comments from Charles Krauthammer and John Bolton to which I see no need to comment any further other than to fully agree:

Appearing on Fox News  after Barack Obama’s Syria speech, last Saturday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer accused the president of leaving the region hanging, and making it look like he was “chickening out.”

“This is amateur hour,” Krauthammer said, and if you were sitting in Syria, Iraq, or Moscow watching this speech, then it looked like Obama was looking for a way out of striking Syria after he had boxed himself in.
After listing the arguments in favor of going war, he noted, “the only thing that matters at this point, is the word of the United States. That overrides everything.”

“Even though I think a limited attack is not the right thing to do, at this point he has to do something, or we will have reached the lowest ebb of American influence in the region since 1970,” he said.

As for Obama’s murky timetable for action, Krauthammer said:
“They hear a president who has no idea what he is doing and speaks about this in a leisurely way. What he ought to do, (and I can’t believe he actually decided otherwise!) is bring back Congress tomorrow. We’ve got Reagan Airport, we’ve got National Airport, we’ve got Dulles….you bring in the members of congress, you have a debate for two days, and you have a resolution. You can’t leave the region hanging…It looks absolutely as if the president has chickened out. And that’s the work of the president because of the way he did this.

More from Charles:

“[T]he most astonishing thing is the lack of any urgency,” Krauthammer said. “As you say, Congress will be back in a week. He says, ‘I can strike in a day or a week or a month,’ as if he is a judge handing down a sentence and the execution can be any time in the future. There is a war going on. Do you think everybody is going to hold their breath, hold their arms, step aside until Obama decides when he wants to go to Congress?

“Look, I think he should go to Congress,” he continued. “I think it is absolutely necessary. But he has done no preparation. What they should have done — I mean, this is sort of amateur hour. When there were the first attacks six months ago or if you like, when we had the current attacks, he should have immediately have called in the Congress the way the prime minister of Britain had called in the parliament, had a debate and got a resolution and then went out and told the world we are going do x or we are not going to do x.”

Ambassador John Bolton :

“This is absolutely stunning,” Bolton said. “I’ve been trying to fill in the blank of the following sentence: ‘Barack Obama is the weakest president since…’ And I have to say, the best I can come up with is James Buchanan who watched the country dissolve into the Civil War. We’re watching the collapse of American influence in the Middle East and really more broadly. And I say that as somebody who has been opposed to use of force in Syria. I have to ask if your secretary of state, John Kerry, given the two very strong statements that he has made on this subject since the first indication of the chemical weapons used 10 days ago took place: Are you now thinking of resigning as a matter of principle, having laid out the case, whether you agree or disagree with Kerry, that the United States has to use force here, to see the president take this step.”

“I’ll leave it to others to say whether Congress can approve it, but you know he needs 60 votes in the Senate to authorize force, and it’s very hard to see that he’s going to get it,” Bolton continued. “And having said, ‘I’ve made up my mind to use force, but now I’ll ask Congress’ — a failure to get it here tells the Ayatollahs in Teheran it is smooth sailing toward nuclear weapons unless Israel strikes.”

“I favor a strong president and a strong foreign policy and strong America in the world,” Bolton said. “It was a very foolish thing to make the statement about the red line last August. He did it in the heat of a presidential campaign but the fact is as the economist say in the sunk cost fallacy, just because you do one very foolish thing, as you look ahead on your policy, you don’t make things better by doing a second foolish thing. We’re going to take a hit for his statement last August but we don’t need to compound it. He’s now compounded it twice over. He’s saying again today that the military strike will be very limited but he’s going further by saying he’s not sure he’s going to do it unless he gets authority. I think this is a mistake twice compounded now.”

A new (for me) blog I now follow is Liberty’s Torch and I found the fascinating analysis below:

Donald Sensing continues:
In his statement, the president also said this: "Yet while I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific Congressional authorization, I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course and our actions will be even more effective." 

Let's parse that.
1. He means that he thinks he has authority as president to bomb Syria without going to Congress at all.
Well, in that case he may be right, in the sense that any president has the power to do what Congress doesn't oppose. Obama illegally sent US bombers against Libya in 2011 without Congressional authority; by any stretch, the president was both declaring and making war, the former power reserved to the Congress alone.
But history, and not just of this administration, shows that Congress will usually be pretty passive about that kind of thing. The White House does not have that power so much by delegation as by concession.
However, there is another twist to what Obama might have meant that would require him to believe this, which is, 

2. He means that even if Congress votes against authorizing the Syria war, he can still order the strikes because he didn't have to ask Congress in the first place. 

If Congress votes to withhold authority for the strikes and Obama orders them anyway, then beyond question we will have reached one of the most serious Constitutional crises of our history. Unless unmistakably halted by Congress, we will have surrendered the last vestige of representative, Constitutional government. It is not obvious, however, that this what the president meant. Let us hope not.
Hope, in the age of the Usurper, has become a feeble reed.

The Regime has systematically replaced our top commanders with political puppets: uniformed politicians loyal to Obama rather than to the Constitution or their military oaths. There is little reason to think they'll refuse Obama's unconstitutional order to act. What that would mean for the United States is devastating.
The great fear, of which few of us have dared to speak, is that the sequel will see our armed forces used domestically, in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, to suppress "insurrection," meaning any unacceptably vocal condemnation of the Regime or dissent from its policies."

Finally, my disdain for this President, his administration, his allies in Congress and the hapless MSM as well as the “sheeples” who blindly support a man who I feel is a traitor to everything I have been brought up to believe in is I’m sure not a secret. LOL!  I mentioned in opening the “wallowing in racism” as well as the blind political “oh, we must support this clown no matter what for the party or whatever bullshit!  As such, one can only imagine the disgust I felt as the usual subjects started talking about “supporting President Bozo so as not to embarrass him or lessen his stature”. 

 Moron Alert! Who gives a damn about his legacy, be it as a black President or his asinine agenda or whatever insane reason anyone can use to justify backing a man who is proving again and again to be the most inept, polarizing, anti-American ideal President of not only my lifetime but in history. This idiot is destroying everything this country not only stands for, but is in fact laboring to deliver us into the third world Socialist /Muslim mediocrity that has become cancer that is destroying everything! And we get crap like below?! 

From Newsbusters:

COLBY KING, WASHINGTON POST: A defeat of this magnitude would diminish his presidency - not just the legislative agenda he has, but his presidency domestically and internationally. Here’s a president who can’t deliver on something as fundamental as this issue. There’s no fallback position. I mean, his administration has got to see this as the most urgent, most urgent task in front of them.
Ed Asner:
"A lot of people don't want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama," he said.

From Newsbusters:

HOLMES NORTON: No, oh boy, no. I think it’ll be like the red line trap. He said if the red line you cross it. I think once you say, "I’m going to Congress," you can’t say, “Okay, I’m going to do it anyway.”
PRESS: Yeah, yeah, I don’t…
HOLMES NORTON: So I think he’ll be in real trouble if he then does it anyway. No president has done that.
PRESS: It’s not an easy decision for any of you, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton.
HOLMES NORTON: Oh, and I’d like to say, Bill, that if he gets saved at all, I think it’ll be because, it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage.
PRESS: Yeah, right.
HOLMES NORTON: At the, at the moment, that’s the only reason I would vote for it if I could vote on it.

Wake up folks! We have no credibility in the world anymore. Obomba says he can attack any way, after all he now has “my military” in his pocket if one listens to his idiocy. Israel will suffer repercussions and there will be attacks on Western establishments by the very people we are supposedly aiding in Syria. In turn, attention is being turned away from the disaster that is this administration’s asinine policies (and I feel that is on purpose. Wag the Dog as Clinton did). As there really is not an economic recovery as the bullshitters claim, the spike in oil prices combined with the possible collapse of the dollar (I’m not an economist, but it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to know the world is looking to go to a different reserve currency than the dollar and what better excuse than this), combined with the cost of another war that will possibly engulf an already screwed up Mideast, it is easy to say that the warnings of what can happen are real! As the administration lies and ducks and weaves, the rest of the world is openly mocking us. I’m afraid the Syria situation has brought it to a point to where the radicals now feel empowered to do what the hell they want and I’m sure we are on the brink of a firestorm the likes of which we really don’t want to see. Unfortunately, the people “We the People” elected (And this is pointed at the sorry assed Republicans as well!) do not have the balls to stand up and be counted as to what is good for the United States!
