Obama’s bizarre miscues display leadership ineptness

November 25, 2015

French President Francois Hollande came to Washington to meet with Barack Obama Tuesday, following the synchronized acts of Islamic extremist terrorism that killed 130 people in Paris Nov. 13.  Hollande met earlier with his British counterparts and is proceeding to Germany, Italy and Russia. Obama, referring to his contemporary casually as “Francois,” pledged to stand with France, though offering no concrete actions the U.S. would take — making it clear it was up to Europe to escalate efforts to combat terrorism, though the ISIS terrorists have vowed imminent attacks (video) on the United States.

Coordination is not in the cards. Obama’s response is to welcome the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, he now claims are “subjected to vigorous screening and security checks” — something experts say is virtually impossible. He makes this assertion despite the fact that several of the Paris terrorists entered Europe as part of the flood of “refugees” leaving Syria.

Barack Obama and Francois Hollande’s joint news conference held bizarre overtones as Obama, who refers to the jihadist terror group commonly known as ISIS by his preferred acronym of ISIL, also began calling it “Daesh” during the televised meeting. Daesh is an acronym created out of the group’s full Arabic name, “al-Dawla al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham.” 

Obama has been criticized by Democrats as well as Republicans for not further ramping up a military response on the growing Islamic State he has referred to as a “JV Team” and recently claimed was “contained.” (video)

This CBS News poll released Monday confirms that Americans have little confidence in his handling of the threats.

Obama’s talk is cheap. In a line reminiscent of one used by the French to express unity with the United States after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, linguist Obama said in French, “Nous sommes tous Français.” or “We are all French.” It’s a weak attempt at a harmonious gesture that boorishly escaped him in January when 40+ world leaders assembled in Paris to participate in a unity march following the ISIS slaughter of 17 people at the office of the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. This was Obama’s late and cringe-worthy response.

Many Americans will remember it was French President Jacque Chirac who was the first foreign Head of State to arrive at the White House with a personal message of support and condolences after the radical Islamic-inflicted Sept. 11, 2001 carnage that killed nearly 3000 on American soil.

At the time, Obama was busying himself as an Illinois state legislator and restaurant critic, (video) so it might have escaped his notice.

AZ Republic: Hypocrites in face of ISIS jihadist attacks

November 19, 2015

Newspaper lobs misplaced brickbats at conservative Republicans

In an irrational editorial that clearly defines its radically leftist lurch, the Arizona Republic places the blame for unspeakable acts of terror not on ISIS, but on…..conservative Republicans.

 Carrying the absurd title,“ ISIS hits and the right goes wobbly,” making the Islamic jihadist organization sound more like a paper tiger than a dedicated killing machine committed to ensuring  every knee bend to Allah and in total submission to Sharia law.

Barack Obama, who refuses to use the words radical Islam, referred to the coordinated murderous attacks across Paris as “a setback,” after one day earlier foolishly claiming ISIS was “contained.” (Video under link) Previously he deemed ISIS a “JV team.” French President Francois Hollande hesitated not a moment in declaring the slaughters as “an act of war.”

But in Republicese, blaming Republicans carries the day, since there’s not a chance liberal Democrats could ever be culpable. There’s no need to read the entire frenzied editorial, the first 83 words will more than suffice.

As to Barack Obama, the incompetent President of the United States, it’s well to remember his Sept. 25, 2012 speech delivered at the United Nations just days after the Sept. 11 Benghazi attack when Islamic militants stormed the American diplomatic compound in Libya, killing the American ambassador and three other Americans attached to the embassy.

Obama’s speech contained these words, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

With the forced release of Hillary Clinton’s emails, we now know Obama deceptively blamed what he termed “a crude and disgusting video [that] sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world,” as he tried to rationalize the attacks with trickery.

Obama is a liar. His regime’s operatives lied on his behalf, denying what we now know was a pre-planned act of terror and definitely not “spontaneous.” And Hillary Clinton, who will likely be the 2016 Democrat presidential nominee, and will undoubtedly win the endorsement of this embarrassing rag masquerading as a newspaper — lied as well.

Donald Trump’s implosion difficult to watch

November 14, 2015

Trump’s increasingly odd, unpresidential behavior 

As the Iowa caucus looms and Ben Carson is gaining momentum, Donald Trump is veering off into a land stranger than OZ.

In a 95-minute tirade in Fort Dodge, Iowa on Thursday, Trump lashed out at the very voters he needs, saying those who believed Carson’s explanations clarifying portions of his autobiography, “Gifted Hands,” in which he admitted having a “pathological temper” as a child, illustrated signs of stupidity of Iowa voters and voters in general, who are beginning to pay close attention to the retired neurosurgeon.

“How stupid are the people of Iowa?” Trump asked. “How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?” A master of repetition, he continued, “Give me a break, give me a break — it doesn’t happen that way. It doesn’t happen that way.”

Trump claimed Carson has a “pathological disease” with no cure, comparing it to the incurable mental conditions of child molesters. “A child molester, there’s no cure for that,” Trump incoherently ranted. “If you’re a child molester, there’s no cure. They can’t stop you. Pathological? There’s no cure.”

This was Dr. Carson’s calm response:

Questions arose in August when Trump announced he had fired his longtime friend and campaign advisor Roger Stone. Stone disputed that, saying he quit.

Politico discloses a portion of Stone’s email to Trump:

“I was proud to have played a role in the launch of your presidential campaign. Your message of ‘Make America Great Again’ harkened back to the Reagan era. Restoring national pride and bringing jobs back to America — your initial and still underlying message — is a solid conservative message. In fact, it catapulted you instantly into a commanding lead in the race,” Stone’s email said.

“Unfortunately, the current controversies involving personalities and provocative media fights have reached such a high volume that it has distracted attention from your platform and overwhelmed your core message,” Stone wrote. “With this current direction of the candidacy, I no longer can remain involved in your campaign.”

Try to imagine being an advisor to a billionaire showman who refuses to take advice. No paycheck would be adequate compensation.

No news to print? Non-announcements work

November 3, 2015

Christine Jones, who lost the six-way Arizona GOP gubernatorial Primary Election to Doug Ducey by over 20 percent, tells the increasingly devoid of news daily she will not campaign for the 9th Congressional District in 2016. The Congressional seat is currently held by uber-liberal Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, warmly endorsed by the Arizona Republic in 2012.

Referencing CD 9, Jones said, “Although [it] appears eminently winnable, pursuing a seat in Congress at this time is not the highest and best use of my time.”

While she indicated she’d be open to looking at the race again in the future, Jones neglected to say how she’s currently making the “highest and best use” of her time.

We have to hand it to Christine Jones for contriving such a clever political strategy. Few would-be contenders would wait until a vulnerable congressional newcomer is more deeply entrenched before mounting a challenge. Ms. Jones obviously has a plan, as evidenced by her too-late-to-be-a-viable-contender, non-announcement braggadocio. She’s just holding it close to her vest.

Why the confusing message from AZ GOP?

Robert Graham’s slippery mailers irritate, alienate voters

A. J. LaFaro, immediate past chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) calls into question the rationale of AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham spending tens of thousands of dollars on mailings and robo calls to registered Independents urging them to re-register as Republicans so they can vote in the Republican Presidential Preference Election on March 22, 2016.

The Presidential Preference Election is not a Primary Election. A preference election is the means by which Arizona voters aligned with a political party cast their ballot for the candidate they want their delegates to vote for at the National Convention. The state’s actual Primary Election takes place Aug. 30.

LaFaro, currently serving as National Director of the Arizona Republican Assembly, notes Graham’s efforts make no sense if you look at Arizona’s four previous Republican Preferential Preference Elections:

1. 2012 – 45.45% of registered Republicans voted (511,239 of 1,124,726)
2. 2008 – 51.98% of registered Republicans voted (541,767 of 1,042,294)
3. 2004 – No election because Bush was the incumbent
4. 2000 – 35.56% of registered Republicans voted (323,242 of 909,063)

LaFaro cites the Secretary of State’s website, which reports there were 1,107,108 registered Republicans as of July 1, 2015. Instead of wasting tens of thousands of dollars confusing and alienating Independent voters and the public, he asks why doesn’t Robert Graham and the AZ GOP reach out to all of Arizona’s Republicans and encourage them to get involved, stay involved and vote for the presidential candidate they prefer?

Makes sense to us.

Obama: Criminal justice system “remains unfair”

October 19, 2015

Slick talk on crime skips over facts

In his weekly address to the nation over the weekend, Barack Obama said that much of the American criminal justice system is unfair and that what he referred to as “underfunded schools” in the United States are a conduit to overcrowded prisons.

According to the selfless community organizer now sitting in the Oval Office,  criminal acts have nothing to do with incarceration rates. He tells us “The Department of Justice has gotten ‘Smart on Crime,’ refocusing efforts on the worst offenders, and pursuing mandatory minimum sentences less frequently.” 

“But over the last few decades, we’ve also locked up more non-violent offenders than ever before, for longer than ever before.  That’s the real reason our prison population is so high,” he claims.

The rioting mobs in Ferguson, Missouri, as a single example, who loot and destroy businesses, throw bricks at police, smash police cars and set their own town on fire to express their displeasure, apparently fall into the “non-violent offenders” category. They thought they could get away with their savagery and they did.

Missing from Obama’s video address are the astronomical numbers of fatherless homes and young uneducated mothers who breed not only large families but generational poverty and reliance on public benefits.

Former Florida Congressman Allen West, a black conservative Republican, tells the truth about the cities that foment crime — among them, Atlanta, Baltimore, Detroit, New York City and Washington, DC — are all run by Democrats.

Quoting from this John Nolte piece posted on Breitbart, Allen West says Nolte was spot on. “This is not about an American failure, it is about a Democrat failure. As far as the good people of Baltimore trapped by the terrible voting of your fellow citizens, I suggest you buy more guns until you can move to a city not run by those who see rioting as part of the Master Plan.

Bill Nye, dedicated leftist, is no Science Guy

October 4, 2015

Incoherent pro-abortion ramblings appeal to media

We begin with the premise that Bill Nye is an odd duck. The comedy writer and entertainer who formerly toiled as a mechanical engineer before morphing into Bill Nye the bow-tie-wearing “Science Guy,” is a self-declared agnostic, a climate change advocate and an enthusiastic Obama supporter. He also holds a patent for never manufactured ballet shoes. With this whirlwind of activity surrounding him, he found time to get married, and remained a devoted husband, until be boogied 7 weeks after exchanging vows.

Nye has won the praise of liberal media outlets since taking on the topic of abortion — an issue with which he exhibits limited understanding — though the lame-stream media delightedly fawn over him.

NewsBusters’ Katie Yoder exposes the Bible bashing, farcical scientific “expert”  in 10 Worst Media Headlines Applauding Bill Nye’s Abortion Video.

After reading her report, watch the absurd video, in which Nye claims pro-life views are “just a reflection of a deep scientific lack of understanding and you literally or apparently literally don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Sounding more like a teen than the scientist he alleges to be, Nye says:

“And so when it comes to women’s right with respect to their reproduction, I think you should leave it to women. This is really – you cannot help but notice — I’m not the first guy to observe this, you have a lot of men of European descent passing these extraordinary laws based on ignorance. Sorry you guys. I know it was written or your interpretation of a book written 5,000 years ago, 50 centuries ago, makes you think that when a man and a woman have sexual intercourse they always have a baby. That’s wrong and so to pass laws based on that belief is inconsistent with nature. I mean it’s hard not to get frustrated with this, everybody. But you can’t tell somebody what to do. I mean she has rights over this, especially if she doesn’t like the guy that got her pregnant. She doesn’t want anything to do with your genes, get over it, especially if she were raped and all this. So it’s very frustrating on the outside, on the other side. We have so many more important things to be dealing with. We have so many more problems to squander resources on this argument based on bad science, on just lack of understanding.”

“I really encourage you to look at the facts. So I just really encourage you to not tell women what to do and not pursue these laws that really are in nobody’s best interest. Just really be objective about this. We have other problems to solve everybody. Come on. Come on. Let’s work together.”
