Obama Needs to Stop Talking Trash

Posted on October 9th, 2015

Putin Syria Bully Obama Kerry from www.caglecartoons.com  # 169515By Mike Ford

In an article in Politico on October 2 titled, “Obama’s Trash Talk,” Edward-Isaac Dovere writes regarding President Obama’s statements at that day’s press conference:

“Putin, meanwhile, is just a liar,” Obama said, “a silly, weakened, ridiculous liar, as anyone could see.” Obama smacked away statements the Russian president made in public and in private in their Monday sitdown. He even did a double shot of mine’s-bigger-than-yours, tearing into the size and growth of the Russian economy and noting with pleasure that though Putin seemed confident in his America-bashing, Assad-supporting address to the General Assembly in New York, “I didn’t see after that speech at the United Nations suddenly that 60-nation coalition we have lining up behind him.”

Trash Talking is fine when your name is Muhammad Ali and you have not only the ability, but also the willingness to use your fists to win the day. If your name is Barack Obama and you are President of the United States, you may have the ability in the form of the world’s finest military, but the willingness and intellect to back up your trash talk with effective actions just isn’t your forte.

Trash talking without substance to back it up appears to be a common theme with President Obama. We all can recall his comment to Governor Mitt Romney during the presidential debates, when Romney opined that Russia might be the biggest threat to the United States and world stability. Obama snarked back, “The 1980s called and they want their foreign policy back.” Recent events have proven Governor Romney right and President Obama’s trash talk to be ill informed and out of place. Russia, led by President Vladimir Putin, is indeed a threat and growing more so each day.

More recently, when queried about the potential of ISIS to cause major disruption in Southwest Asia, President Obama referred to them as a “JV Team.” That “JV Team” appears to have gotten the full attention of two major powers and a host of not-so-major ones. Again, the president’s trash talk is not in line with the facts on the ground or his own actual performance. Read More..

Obama Versus Putin — Golfer and Caddy

Posted on October 5th, 2015

Putin, Obama, Golfer, CaddyBy Monty Pelerin

Obama versus Putin is a mismatch. One so seriously overpowers the other that it is not a contest. Some have likened the Obama versus Putin comparison as small-town bully versus Big City Bully. Others have suggested that Putin is playing chess while Obama is playing checkers or marbles.

This site used this golf image a few years ago to define the relationship between Obama and Putin. The image illustrated the difference in abilities between the two. Subsequent events, particularly this week in Syria, validate the golfer and caddy roles. It Obama versus Putin were a boxing match, the referee would have stopped the fight before this point. But how do you employ a “mercy rule” in geopolitics. Chamberlain versus Hitler did not end until the entire world had suffered.

This country is in deep trouble and has been for several years. It should be obvious, even to Obama supporters, that their man is incompetent. He is being manhandled by Vlad. If you want to know why the Republican primaries are favoring outsiders, think of how Republicans have been snookered by this incompetent.

The dullards who refused to see the Community Organizer as a fraud during his first term are dwindling. Those who still support this clown are probably hopeless. Read More..

Syria Is Obama’s Watergate

Obama lines in Syria from www.caglecartoons.com # 169587By Michael Goodwin

What did he know and when did he know it? The immortal question about Richard Nixon and Water­gate should be posed to Barack Obama about Syria. What and when did he know about Vladimir Putin’s axis-of-evil coalition?

The significance is not limited to Syria. The question goes to the heart of the Iran nuclear deal, especially the timing of the congressional votes.

Imagine Obama trying to sell the Iran deal now. With Russia, Iran and Iraq working together to muscle the United States aside and defend Bashar al-Assad, the president couldn’t possibly argue that the nuke deal would help stabilize the Middle East. Nor could he argue that Russia could be trusted to help enforce ­restrictions on Iran.

The strong likelihood that Obama would have lost the Iran vote if Congress knew then what the world knows now suggests the possibility the president concealed the Russian plan until the Iran deal was done. That view fits with his single-minded determination to get a deal at any price, including making key concessions and downplaying Iranian threats to Israel and the United States.

After all that, what’s another lie? Read More..

On Syria, Obama Plays Tiddlywinks, Putin Plays Chess

Putin at the United Nations, Obama from www.caglecartoons.com # 169469By Investor’s Business Daily

The White House was “surprised” by a new intelligence-sharing pact among Iran, Syria, Russia and Iraq to fight the Islamic State. But given their own actions, anyone else could have seen it coming.

For the Obama administration, there’s always a surprise when it comes to the Middle East. Having pulled out of Iraq before Iraq was ready, they were taken unawares by the Islamic State’s rise. Now Russia’s strategic moves to be the big dog on the block in the Mideast have thrown them for another loop.

Russia has forged an alliance with Syria, Iran and Iraq to share intelligence to destroy the Islamic State — without inviting the U.S. The pact has a powerful moral rationale, given the monstrosity of the enemy and the U.S. lack of will to fight. But it also will permanently extend Russian power in the region, something that Russia had under the USSR but that is also a longstanding imperial ambition dating back to the days of Vlad the Great.

What we are seeing here is the totally predictable outcome of a U.S. victory thrown away.

No matter how much Obama blames former President Bush or Syrian dictator Bashar Assad for the current shambles in the Middle East, the facts on the ground remain: Our military was on the cusp of victory after a painstaking process of engagement, but the entire effort was discarded for the far cheaper aim of pulling troops out and calling the pullout “peace.”

Instead of stabilizing Iraq and making it a bulwark against Iran and a beacon for the other Middle Eastern states, there was just the Obama administration’s self-delusion of “peace” with few U.S. troops around. Read More..

An Unteachable President

Posted on October 1st, 2015

Obama, Kerry, Putin at United NationsBy Bret Stephens

For Obama, it isn’t the man in the arena who counts. It’s the speaker on the stage.

Barack Obama told the U.N.’s General Assembly on Monday he’s concerned that “dangerous currents risk pulling us back into a darker, more disordered world.” It’s nice of the president to notice, just don’t expect him to do much about it.

Recall that it wasn’t long ago that Mr. Obama took a sunnier view of world affairs. The tide of war was receding. Al Qaeda was on a path to defeat. ISIS was “a jayvee team” in “Lakers uniforms.” Iraq was an Obama administration success story. Bashar Assad’s days were numbered. The Arab Spring was a rejoinder to, rather than an opportunity for, Islamist violence. The intervention in Libya was vindication for the “lead from behind” approach to intervention. The reset with Russia was a success, a position he maintained as late as September 2013. In Latin America, the “trend lines are good.”

“Overall,” as he told Tom Friedman in August 2014—shortly after ISIS had seized control of Mosul and as Vladimir Putin was muscling his way into eastern Ukraine—“I think there’s still cause for optimism.”

It’s a remarkable record of prediction. One hundred percent wrong. The professor president who loves to talk about teachable moments is himself unteachable. Why is that? Read More..

Europe Faces Cultural Disaster As Refugees Pour In: “A Direct Threat to Our Civilization”

Posted on September 24th, 2015

Welcome to Europe refugees from www.caglecartoons.com # 168869By Max Slavo

The tide of refugees from Syria and elsewhere has already been disastrous for the people who lived there and now seek another home. But the disaster is just beginning for Western Civilization. Today, the major front is Europe. But it is happening in America, too, and someday it might be too late. A demographic shift is happening so sharply in the UK, France, Germany and other European nations that it could hardly be called anything but a takeover.

The war hawks overplayed the ‘Muslim extremist’ card in the days after 9/11 when terrorism dominated every headline and nearly every political discussion. Hypocrisies devastated innocent lives, wasted money and ran America’s reputation and morale into the ground. But meanwhile, the cultural enemy was being brought home, through waves of immigration.

Zero Hedge warns that Europe is “heading for disaster” with regard to the immigration tidal wave:

Nigel Farage Warns Immigrant Flood “Threatens Our Civilization”

“We are heading towards disaster” exclaims UKIP’s Nigel Farage in this brief clip. Having warned for months about both the consequences of actions and the EU’s disastrous policies, the flood of immigrants, Farage warns “we face a direct threat to our civilization if we allow large numbers of people from that war-torn region into Europe.” Simply put, he fears within EU policy “there is no way to filter out extremists in favor of people fleeing in genuine fear of their lives,” and suggest following the Australian policy.

Though there is genuine sentiment for those displaced by a war torn region, the Western authorities have staged a clash with culture at the ideological and cultural level. Read More..

Top Imam: Muslim Migrants Should Breed With Europeans to “Conquer Their Countries”

Refugees Europe welcomes from www.caglecartoons.com # 168169By Paul Joseph Watson

Speaking at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Ayed stated that European countries were not rolling out the red carpet for migrants because they were compassionate, but because Europe was in dire need of a new source of labor.

“Europe has become old and decrepit and needs human reinforcement….they are not motivated by compassion for the Levant, its people and its refugees,” said Ayed, adding, “Soon, we will trample them underfoot, Allah willing.”

“Throughout Europe, all the hearts are enthused with hatred toward Muslims. They wish that we were dead, but they have lost their fertility, so they look for fertility in our midst,” he added.

“We will give them fertility! We will breed children with them, because we shall conquer their countries!”

Ayed correctly outlines the fact that Europe is facing demographic disaster because its citizens have stopped having children. Read More..

50 US Spies “Revolt” Exposing How Their Reports Are Cooked to Manipulate the Public about ISIS

Posted on September 11th, 2015

Why Wasn’t I Warned Obama ISIS from www.caglecartoons.com # 154396EDITOR’S COMMENT: Frankly, while this “revolt” is rather shocking, we really shouldn’t be that surprised, based upon President Obama’s past and current efforts to spin every detail to his advantage. If that can’t be done, then the issue is conveniently overlooked with the aid of his adoring media, or he will comment that he is not familiar with the relevant issue. Just always remember that almost everything spoken by this administration is either an exaggeration, a falsehood, or a lie. And, now we see that our supposedly independent military has also been infected with this effort to mislead by “cherry-picking” our intelligence reports!

By Jay Syrmopoulos

More than 50 U.S. military intelligence analysts operating out of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) have staged what has been called a ‘revolt’ by intelligence professionals. The revolt comes after announcing that their intelligence reports were being altered and manipulated to fit the public narrative that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS.

The analysts are assigned to U.S. CENTCOM, but are officially employed by the Defense Intelligence Agency, the intelligence branch of the Pentagon.

“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official told The Daily Beast.

The disturbing revelations came after more than 50 intelligence analysts filed formal complaints, causing the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the matter.

According to the report by The Daily Beast:

Two senior analysts at CENTCOM signed a written complaint sent to the Defense Department inspector general in July alleging that the reports, some of which were briefed to President Obama, portrayed the terror groups as weaker than the analysts believe they are. The reports were changed by CENTCOM higher-ups to adhere to the administration’s public line that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS and al Nusra, al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the analysts claim.

The President Is Willing to Gamble on U.S. Security for the Sake of His Personal Legacy by Importing Prisoners from Guantanamo

Posted on September 11th, 2015

Camp DeltaBy Pat Roberts and Tim Scott

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said recently that the Obama administration is in the “final stages of drafting a plan to safely and responsibly” close the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay. Our home states of Kansas and South Carolina are being considered as potential sites for housing the enemy combatants transferred from Guantanamo. Defense Department officials visited Fort Leavenworth, Kan., on Aug. 14 and will be visiting the Naval Brig in Charleston, S.C., to survey the facilities.

When Barack Obama won the White House in 2008, he announced that Guantanamo would be closed in the first year of his presidency. This was a political promise with little regard for recidivism rates, the continuing conflicts in Iraq or Afghanistan, and most important, America’s national security. So it is fortunate that the deadline was not met.

But throughout his presidency, Mr. Obama has prioritized personal legacy over the safety and security of the nation—and he is still pursuing an effort to move the terrorists at Guantanamo into our backyards.

The notion that Kansas, South Carolina or any other state would be an ideal home for terrorist detainees is preposterous. Transferring these prisoners to the mainland puts the well-being of states in danger, posing security risks to the public and wasting taxpayer dollars. The detention facilities at Guantanamo are doing a fantastic job of holding these terrorists. Read More..

Barack Obama’s Inability to Grasp Reality

Iran side deals Obama from www.caglecartoons.com # 166776By Wesley Pruden

Barack Obama is afraid he might be a warmonger at heart. Who knew? But making war against an Islamic enemy? That defies everyone’s imagination.

The president keeps changing his arguments for approval of his deal with the mullahs in Iran, and the tone of his denunciations of anybody who argues with him grows ever harsher and disrespectful. The latest refinement of tone is his assertion that it’s his way or the highway, that war with Iran lies at the end of that forbidden highway.

But who would start such a war? He doesn’t say. As crazy as the mullahs are, the craziness lies in a distorted theology, not in statecraft. The mullahs are smart enough not to believe everything they say, and go to war against the United States. We logically conclude that Mr. Obama is afraid that he might be the one to start the war. Who else does he think it could be? His “it’s me or war” is rendered nonsense, and he knows it.

Many bad things happen when a leader is weak, confused and forever searching for a reason to do nothing. For all his softness on Islam, he has little insight into the men who send out mobs to cry “death to America.” He can’t imagine that men who listen to the call to evening prayer that so captivated him as a boy in Indonesia — “the prettiest sound on Earth” — actually dream of bringing death to America.
