I began writing this yesterday and I’m afraid, as usual, it was turning into one of my over the top tirades as is befitting to my mindset of late. It is no secret I have absolutely no respect for this President, his followers and lackeys, all of whom in my opinion do not give one damn for our country, her people or anything else we stand for.
Seeing we have a despot in charge that openly negotiates with terrorists or worse, that fact in itself would be bad enough. But in fact, that is the tip of the iceberg.
Yesterday, I mentioned the fact that we have not heard one word from what in my mind appears to be close to a black on black genocide in his home town of Chicago. I guess one shouldn’t be surprised at that tough. After all, we also haven’t heard anything as to the genocide that is being conducted against not only the Jews as is the Radical Muslims stated intent, but even worse, this so called “Christian” can’t even bother to acknowledge the massacre of Christians in the Mid-East! China just stuck it right up where the sun doesn’t shine just as Russia has been doing.
He barters for a traitor, breaking the law in the course of doing it, but refuses to even try to get one of our Marines released from a Mexican prison.
And let’s not forget his complete open disdain for the people in our Armed Services! Hell, he couldn’t even be bothered to send a representative to the funeral of one of his generals, but he’s sending a contingent, as reported today, to the Michael Brown funeral!NBC News reports:
U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene was buried today at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors, including a caisson, two escort platoons, casket team, firing party, colors team, and a caparisoned horse. The U.S. Army band, “Pershing’s Own,” played softly as the funeral procession made its way down the long hill past the rows of simple white gravestones to bring General Greene to his final resting place.
The graveside service began with a few words, followed by a 13-gun salute. The major general’s widow, Dr. Susan Myers, was seated in the front row. To her right was their son 1st Lt. Matthew Greene, his daughter Amelia Greene, followed by Major General Greene’s father, also Harold Greene.
After three rifle volleys and the playing of “Taps,” the American flag, once placed on the major general’s casket, was carefully folded as the band played “America the Beautiful.” U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno presented the flag to his widow, and additional flags to his children and father.
General Greene, 55, became the highest-ranking fatality in the war in Afghanistan after an Afghan military police officer opened fire on Aug. 5th, 2014.
It was a beautiful service that was only missing one important attendee:
The President of the United States.
Also missing were the vice president and the secretary of defense.
Photos of the service, posted on the internet from news services all over the globe, showed a riderless horse, the general’s children touching the casket and the flag presented to his widow by Army Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno.
The list goes on, but I hope one can see why it is hard for me to have any respect for this man. The lies keep coming, his hatred for our country and its ideals keep spewing out, yet somehow he expects us to keep eating the pabulum while blowing the smoke up our asses. If one has to give just one reference as to how completely out of touch, incompetent, ignorant or worse this man really is, how about the one below?
“So called” President Barack Obama:
“The truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.”
In the case of James Foley, it is being reported that the knowledge well in advance as to the ISIS plans to behead him and furthermore, if proven to be true, the failed mission to rescue him and others would have very probably been successful except for the fact that the so called Commander in Chief” (for want of at least trying to be civil on my part) dragged his feet and couldn’t even muster up enough leadership to make a decision on the spur of the moment, something a real leader would do.
As I said at the beginning, I was really going to go off the rafters, but as usual, the great Judge Jeanine has once again stated the case in the way that I can only wish I could do. After her video, I have included a couple of supporting reports I’ve found the last few days.
“ISIS had recently threatened to kill U.S. journalist James Foley to avenge airstrikes the United States has conducted in Iraq, a senior U.S. official told ABC News.
The White House had been aware of the threat prior to the release of a video Tuesday night that appears to show the beheading of Foley and warns that militants will carry out a similar act against U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff, who went missing in August, the official said.
President Obama was briefed on the video aboard Air Force One Tuesday night as he returned to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from Washington to resume his August vacation. The White House said the intelligence community is working to authenticate the gruesome video that allegedly shows Foley’s beheading.”
Report: Obama Dragged His Feet On Foley Rescue Attempt (Video)
August, 21, 2014 — nicedebThursday morning, CIA-trained former senior intelligence officer, Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C. with Larry O’Conner and Brian Wilson to discuss the ISIS execution of American journalist James Foley earlier this week. He dropped a little bit of a bombshell towards the end of the interview when he told the hosts that the raid into Syria to rescue Foley failed, because “the president drug his feet.”
Calling ISIS “the anti-Christ of terrorist organizations,” Shaffer submitted that he wasn’t sure Obama understood the severity of the problem.
O’Conner asked him if he really thought Obama does not understand the problem.
“He’s been briefed on everything that’s going on,” Shaffer began. “He portends this Jr Varsity mentality that we’re not really up against the A-Team. And let me tell you -we’ve known for at least six months now, that these folks have been gaining momentum. I don’t know how to explain it, but I know that he have more information than I do, and it’s more detailed, and simply put we who are on the outside looking in…have seen this now for awhile – I cannot explain his lack of candor or clarity regarding the threat and I can even less explain his lack of interest in doing something decisive to actually counter these folks.”
Shaffer said that as ISIS doesn’t recognize the border between Syria and Iraq, neither should we and that we needed to decisively destroy their command and control in Syria.
He also revealed that the leaked rescue attempt led by Special Forces earlier this summer failed because President Obama was slow to give the go-ahead.”
Via Larry O’Conner, the Washington Free Beacon:
“I’m hearing from my friends in the Pentagon, they are giving him every single option way ahead of time. And let me give you a little secret here: The reason that raid into Syria failed to get Foley and those guys was because the president drug his feet. He waited too long, the intel got stale, and by the time we actually gave the “go” word it failed because we just didn’t react quick enough.”
Judge Jeanine mentions the fact the administration announced “they tried a mission, but failed” then in turn blamed the intelligence community for that failure. Not surprisingly, it turns out the Pentagon and many others are aghast, not only at the leak of the information, one that clearly was done so as to enhance the image of the weakling in the White House, but also at the fact that once again, this President is endangering the operatives, sources and most of all the security of this nation. In my eyes, TREASON of the first degree!
“Two Defense Department officials, who spoke separately on the condition of anonymity because of the operation’s delicate nature, expressed anger at the administration for revealing the mission,” The New York Times reported. “One of the officials said the aborted raid had alerted the militants to the Americans’ desire and willingness to try to rescue the hostages, and, in the aftermath, had probably forced the captors to tighten their security.”
According to a National Security Council statement, the administration was simply trying to get ahead of reporters who were going to reveal the details of the raid with or without government collaboration. The administration, the NSC claims, would have preferred to have been able to keep this failed mission a secret indefinitely.
“We never intended to disclose this operation,” said National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden. “An overriding concern for the safety of the hostages and for operational security made it imperative that we preserve as much secrecy as possible.”
“We only went public today when it was clear a number of media outlets were preparing to report on the operation and that we would have no choice but to acknowledge it,” she added.
AMB. JOHN BOLTON: “I think this is a stunning breech of security for the United States. Obviously, ordered by the White House, I cannot conceive of the Pentagon releasing this on their own. This is exactly the sort of thing that should remain completely confidential for 50 years, number one, because it tells people what we try to do. Number two, it’s an admission of failure. Well, the United States tried again and couldn’t do it. Number three, whoever was — we relied upon, whoever gave us the tip is now in jeopardy from the Islamic State and they will be dead already. This is just not something you do”
Respect this President? How? Just the few examples above preclude any possibility of my respecting in any way this President. With his asinine policies (or lack of any policy, hard to judge which way on that) destroying our credibility around the world as well as his ignorance, not only as to the Mid-East, Muslim hatred of Western Civilization and of course his open border policy that in turn has opened the door for more attacks in this nation from folks like ISIS and worse, respect is not a word I can associate with Mr. Obama.
Do I despise him? You’re damned right I do! I’m not a perfect man by any stretch of the imagination. But I love my country, I love our service men and women and I believe we as a country must stand by our allies. I honor those such as our police forces around the country, men and women whom like our armed services, give so much of themselves and in turn take so much hate thrown towards them, far too much of that hate fomented by an MSM and an administration that uses Racism and worse to prod their agendas along! (I posted yesterday on that and please note the stats O’Reilly gives in his memo)
More so however, I believe a President must act, sometimes against his or her own instincts, to do what is right, what is needed, politics be damned! HE MUST BE A LEADER! Don't ever expect that from this guy!
When one sees open disdain in a leader’s eyes for the laws of this land, our military and for that matter his complete hatred of Free Speech if it in fact insults his royal ass, than one has to be honest with themselves if they in fact believe in our country’s ideals and not be ashamed to feel the disdain for this President as I do.
