Obama Needs to Stop Talking Trash

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..

A Climate of Delusion. President Obama Tries One More Time to Make Global Warming Cool

Posted on October 9th, 2015

Climate change hoax, not scienceBy Washington Times

President Obama’s globalist rhetoric captured hearts at the United Nations but it will take more than hot air to make global warming cool with anyone but the easily fooled. Like the rooster that thinks his cock-a-doodle-doo makes the sun rise, Mr. Obama touts the notion that the president of the United States can command the forces of nature that made the planet hospitable before the human race was born. He knows he can’t do that, but he might pick the pockets of the prosperous to pay for a fantasy.

The president unveiled the climate change agenda of his globalist manifesto in all its unwrapped purple. “All of our countries will be affected by a changing climate, but the world’s poorest people will bear the heaviest burden from rising seas and more intense droughts, shortage of water and food. We will be seeing climate change refugees.”

Apart from computer models that have proved notoriously inaccurate, there is little evidence that the earth’s climate is changing in ways that will trigger the sort of mass migration that the dictators and warmongers have compelled. Now that more than 18 years have passed since global temperatures have budged even an inch, it is clear that “sustainable development,” the keystone of a “green” utopia, is not dependent on the earth’s weather climate but rather on its political climate.

The president argues that carbon-dioxide emissions will bring on climate change catastrophe and he has obligated the United States to enact his Clean Power Plan. Emissions-reducing rules are expected to reduce global temperatures by only 0.03 degrees Fahrenheit by the turn of the next century, at an annual cost estimated to range between $5 billion and $41 billion. In similar fashion, the U.N., which has none, is attempting to shame the developed nations into paying $100 billion a year into its Green Climate Fund for redistribution to poor countries for renewable energy projects.

The GOP’s Senate Worries

Posted on October 8th, 2015

GOP controls Senate from www.caglecartoons.com # 155999By Charlie Cook

No mat­ter how en­ter­tain­ing the cir­cus of the pres­id­en­tial cam­paign, also re­mem­ber this: Con­trol of the Sen­ate is def­in­itely in play. Mag­gie Has­san offered a re­mind­er Monday when the Demo­crat­ic gov­ernor of New Hamp­shire an­nounced that she will chal­lenge Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a first-term Re­pub­lic­an, in next year’s elec­tions. Has­san had been si­lent about her in­ten­tions, but pub­lic polling sug­gests that the race would be very close; most sur­veys show the Re­pub­lic­an in­cum­bent with the nar­row­est of leads.

Re­pub­lic­ans hold a 54-to-46 ad­vant­age in the Sen­ate. This means that Demo­crats would need a net gain of four seats if they hold onto the White House, or five seats if they don’t (be­cause the vice pres­id­ent can break a Sen­ate tie).

The GOP’s ma­jor­ity is flimsy, though. Re­pub­lic­ans have 24 seats at risk next year, com­pared to just 10 for the Demo­crats, and sev­en are in states that Pres­id­ent Obama car­ried in 2012. One of those sev­en seats looks safe; Iowa’s six-term in­cum­bent Chuck Grass­ley is widely seen as both un­beat­able and un­likely to re­tire. But the oth­er six are in real danger—in­cum­bents Ayotte, Mark Kirk (Illinois), Ron John­son (Wis­con­sin), Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania), and Rob Port­man (Ohio), plus a seat in Flor­ida held by Marco Ru­bio, who is run­ning for pres­id­ent rather than Sen­ate reelec­tion.

The res­ult: Demo­crats have fared well in Sen­ate races when the pres­id­ency was up for grabs. In 2008 and 2012, they picked up eight and two seats, re­spect­ively. Their gain in 2012 wasn’t lar­ger be­cause they’d already picked up four seats in 2000 and six more in 2006—the two pre­vi­ous times this class of sen­at­ors had faced voters—leav­ing few­er ad­di­tion­al seats with­in their reach.

U.S. Chamber Plans $100 Million Campaign Against Conservatives

Posted on October 8th, 2015

WAIMH Red ArrowEDITOR’S COMMENT: My how things have changed, as in the past the Chamber of Commerce and the Republicans, in general, were in lockstep together promoting conservative principles. Now, it appears that the Chamber of Commerce, if not all its members, favor big government and government handouts. So, now we have the Republicans rather divided. Those representing the establishment, who tend to agree with the Chamber, are opposed to the more free-market, conservative, Tea Party individuals, who are completely opposed to the hand of big government and all its regulations.

By Mike Flynn

While many conservatives celebrate the abrupt resignation of Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), business groups backed by mega corporations are finalizing plans to neuter conservative lawmakers in 2016.

The U.S. Chamber will take the lead, planning to spend $100 million in 2016, a large portion of which will be devoted to defeat conservatives in Republican primaries.

Roll Call reports that “[s]ome of business’ top targets in 2016 will be right-wing, tea party candidates, the types that have bucked the corporate agenda in Congress.”

The $100 million the Chamber plans to spend this cycle is close to triple the amount the group spent in 2012, when President Obama was running for reelection. In 2014, when the Chamber launched its effort to attack conservatives in primaries, the group spent close to $70 million.

The evolution of the Chamber’s political spending goes a long way to explain the current dysfunction in Washington. The organization will devote $170 million to combat conservatives in primaries and support establishment Republicans in the general, but only around $30 million when Obama is running for reelection.

GOP Establishment Wages War Against Cruz and Conservative Voters

Posted on October 7th, 2015

WAIMH Red ArrowBy John Hayward

Perhaps the Republican leadership and its Establishment apparatus don’t realize just how dangerous is the game they’re playing against conservatives, or perhaps they just don’t care. There is a part of the GOP power structure that has always been most happy to serve as the permanent minority, personally enriched by serving as minor, ineffective obstacles to the ruling Left.

They win elections by cadging millions from conservatives desperate to Do Something about the mess in Washington, then sink comfortably into that mess as though relaxing in a jacuzzi, rousing themselves only to display true fury against the occasional cage-rattling, boat-rocking conservative insurgent.

Republican leaders said they needed the Senate to get anything done, and they got it, in a historic midterm election landslide. They’ve done absolutely nothing with it.

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)2is still the effective Senate Majority Leader – in fact, he’s sitting prettier than ever, because he gets to watch Republicans use his grubby tactics to stymie conservative votes, while his hands remain clean.

Can anyone point to a significant event in the post-midterm Senate that would have gone much differently if Democrats were still the official majority party?

We get no votes on anything of substance to conservatives, no votes that would force Democrats to spend political capital or take uncomfortable on-the-record positions that would alienate voters. Read More..

WHY? Former U.S. Diplomat Says Amb. Powers Instructed To Skip Netanyahu’s UN Speech

Posted on October 7th, 2015

Benjamin Netanyahu with Greek PMBy Kerry Picket

Richard Grenell, a former U.S. diplomat and Fox News contributor, says a State Department source told him U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power was instructed to skip the remarks of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the United Nations on Thursday.

Secretary of State John Kerry was also not present at Netanyahu’s remarks either, according to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

Additionally, those U.S. delegates that did attend the Israeli Prime minister’s speech did not applaud when ovations broke out for remarks made by the Prime Minister about Iranian threats. Read More..

“Uninformed” Hillary Supporters Think A “White Privilege Tax” Is A Good Idea

Posted on October 6th, 2015

WAIMH Red ArrowEDITOR’S COMMENT: What’s truly scary about these comments is that with the huge increase in immigration and the numbers of uninformed citizens continuing to grow sharply, it is possible that this sentiment may eventually dominate among the voters. Not likely, but!

By Steve Watson

Hillary Clinton supporters think that a ‘white privilege tax’ is a real policy, and what’s more they support it, saying that taxing just white people and redistributing the money among minority communities is a good idea.

Political activist Mark Dice went out on the street in San Diego, California to seek out Hillary supporters’ opinions, telling them that Clinton plans on implementing a tax on the income of all Caucasian Americans to help offset income inequality.

“Yeah. I think she should help re-distribute into the minority community.” one woman repeated, after declaring that she trusts in Hillary and trusts in Bill Clinton to be “in her ear”.

“The program is called the white privilege tax?” another woman stated in disbelief before “absolutely” agreeing it should have been implemented years ago. Read More..

Obama Goes Beyond Mere Gun Control, Hints at Confiscation

Posted on October 6th, 2015

Mass Shooter Disease from www.caglecartoons.com # 169597By Awr Hawkins

When President Obama spoke in reaction to the heinous October 1 attack on Umpqua Community College, he went beyond his usual calls for more gun control and suggested instead that America consider following the path blazed by Australia and Great Britain.

In the mid-1990s Australia and Great Britain both instituted what were virtually complete bans on firearm possession.

Obama referenced the bans thus:

We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings.  Friends of ours, allies of ours — Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours.  So we know there are ways to prevent it. 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

Posted on October 5th, 2015

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..
