The Bad, Good and Worse news at Obama’s ISIS press conference

The Bad, Good and Worse news at Obama’s ISIS press conference

Obama: “we don’t have a strategy yet” as to ISIS. Media: Look at Obama’s tan suit.

I was in class yesterday during Obama’s press conference, in which he announced the obvious: We have no strategy as to ISIS. So I didn’t get to watch it live and see the instant reaction.

There was Bad, Good and Worse news.

The bad news: We have no strategy as to ISIS, or anything else in the Middle East other than reducing American influence.

The good news: Obama is telling the truth.

The worse news: The truth Obama is telling is a monumental and deliberate failure that will take a decade or more to reverse, if it even can be reversed.

Mark Levin summed it up nicely on Hannity the other night, not just as to ISIS but the entire thrust of the administration:

And our media?

Beyond pathetic:

Dereliction of Duty on Steroids X infinity….

And the media turns it into a fashion review.

The next Congress needs to begin defunding Øbama and changing America BACK into a Republic by starting the Amendment process to Get Rid of The Seventeenth.

Actually President Obama does have a strategy and a plan.

Strategy= Blame everyone else.
Plan= Give a speech!

    You left out the part where the President postpones any actions against Islamic Radicals until the radicals have won.

    The Democrat Party has fallen a long way from its earlier representative, President Kennedy: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

Oh, and he’s “concerned” about Russians invading Ukraine.

They are working on hi-caliber hashtags in the “War Room”.

Former CIA agent Clare Lopez suggests that Comrade Obama has switched sides. Rather than a secular Middle East, he is working toward one run by folks like ISIS. As a consequence no effective strategy against ISIS will ever materialize. Both his DNI and CIA heads are either Muslim converts or sympathizers and don’t forget Obama’s attempt, later rejected by the people themselves, to impose the Muslim Brotherhood on Egypt. Obama intends to eliminate American influence in the world and he’s actually rooting for the Caliphate in the Middle East. Recall his recently being enraged at Israel’s defending itself against Hamas’ rocket attacks.
There’s treason afoot at 1600 Pennsylvania, he needs to steal the Senate from the Republicans this November to avoid being impeached and prevented from completing his nefarious deeds.

    Walker Evans in reply to Bitterlyclinging. | August 29, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    “Switching sides”? Whatever gave anyone the impression this wasn’t the side he was always on? One of his first official acts was a trip to Saudi Arabia, where he bowed to the King … just as any loyal subject should.

    As long as the Republicans don’t have a 2/3s majority of the Senate Tyrant Obama the Liar is safe from impeachment. In fact there will be very little difference if the Republicans take the Senate. The bills they pass will be vetoed by Tyrant Obama the Liar instead of Harry Reid.

The strategy is working.

The Plan: desttroy the U.S. as we knew it.

It became clear with the “Apology Tour” that he wanted to reduce American power and increase the power of multi-lateral organizations like the U.N. That much can not be seriously disputed. But given the obsession with “inequality” I’ve recently become convinced it’s even worse. I think they’ve pursed policies to deliberately harm Americans standard of living. It’s not misguided or wrongheaded. It’s been deliberate and purposeful.

I’ve said before the bureaucratic takeover of the health insurance, banking, and ultimately energy industries is “Neo-Communism”. They leave the ownership of the assets in private hands, but dictate every aspect of how those assets can be used via regulation. That’s the whole point of 2000 page laws accompanied by tens of thousands of new regulations. This makes the executives and managers who run companies in those industries beholden to government because government can kill them with regulation. (Just yesterday it was announced the DOJ settled with Bank of America for $17 billion – without a single executive admitting wrongdoing or facing a prosecution. The government effectively extorted money from BOA and much of the settlement is earmarked for radical left wing organizations. That’s related but off point for this comment.)

The new revelation that hit me a couple of weeks ago is that the Neo-communist takeover is intended to slow economic growth. Why? Because the Left believes not only is America too strong on the world stage with foreign policy, but just like the Communists are obsessed with equality, so are the Neo-Communist Democrats. And they believe Americans have too high of a standard of living compared to the rest of the world. So they’ve decided to over-regulate – that is bureaucratically takeover via Neo-communism – as many industries as they can to stifle domestic growth so the rest of the world can “catch up”. And it has the added bonus that if they can hurt the American poor enough it may cause a political uprising for even more redistributionist policies domestically. I’m almost certain that is what “climate change” policy is all about. It’s not about the environment, it’s about slowing down the American economy by use of carbon taxes, mandates and subsidies to force Americans to use uneconomic fuel which will lead to sup par economic activity so the developing world can have the most efficient fuel known to man – hydrocarbons – to catch up. In other words, they want Americans to take a hit to our standard of living (median wages have declined since Obama took office) and they want to help the developing world. That way the world becomes more equal. It’s also why they want to import and grant amnesty to so many illegal immigrants. The goal is to keep American wages from rising by flooding the labor market with surplus labor. That doesn’t help American citizens. It hurts Americans. But the goal is to drive down America’s standard of living – or at least not let it rise – so the developing world can catch up.

It seems asinine that in a liberal democracy with free elections and a “free” press that a government could get elected to pursue policies designed to hurt it’s own people. But it’s happened. Democrats will never admit it, and Republicans are too feckless to point it out, but by connecting the dots that’s the conclusion I’ve come to. They’re pursuing Neo-Communist policies to reduce global inequality and force more domestic redistribution.

I’m totally confused.

This 0bama person is a proven liar who has repeatedly demonstrated we cannot believe anything he says.

So, maybe he’s lying now and we’re really in good shape?

Trust the flying pigs.

A comment about the suit made by a friend: It was the closest thing Obama could find to draping himself in a white flag.

Josh Earnest’s earnest efforts at damage control were done in the great American tradition of deception. He talked about the great, robust strategy the administration will have (present tense). It’s really awesome. They’re just still developing it, so they don’t actually have it just yet. But it’s really, really awesome. You believe me, right?

And as a grammatical technicality, it’s not a lie. Per se.

    And I completely meant future tense, not present, but it’s an old problem, my mind rebels against grammar games and overwrites my trying to convey someone else’s grammar abuses.

I was under the impression that our defense and intelligence agencies routinely maintain strategies for any emerging situation overseas, not because we’ll necessarily need one, but so we’ll have one quick if needed.

I think what Sparky means is that the strategies he’s been offered by our defense and intelligence people don’t mesh with his personal political needs and he’s stuck at doing nothing till WH advisos come up with some politically expedient escape from his national security responsibilities.

If four State dept dead in Benghazi* didn’t move this moron, a few beheaded journalists here and there certainly won’t.

*Some enterprising pundit ought to take the CSN&Y hit “Four Dead In Ohio” and re-lyricize it with “Four Dead In Benghazi”.

    Obama doesn’t like making decisions. He prefers voting “present”. He goes with stuff that has overwhelming support of his surrounding minions (Obamacare). He’s learned the fudge technique of sending stuff out to be studied, and calling for more reports. He asks for that instead of opinions, lest it look like he hasn’t a clue. This is a bullshit technique that works when the reports and recommendations all come back similar. And then, of course, point the finger to blame someone else if stuff doesn’t go well.

    He’s in fact afraid of taking responsibility for anything. Afraid of being wrong and being shown up to be the incompetent he is. After all, he’s been pretending for two decades to be so smart. This military stuff is very scary. Terrible things can happen, especially if you make the wrong decision. Not safe like when he launches drones like they were his own personal fancy video game. Or takes some babystep action that maybe can’t help but can’t hurt. And because of his purging of military higher-ups, the military experts are soft-peddling their opinions, leaving it up to him, lest they be on the wrong side of what he wants to do. So he’s in inertia.

    To those above who think Obama has some grand design he’s carrying out. No. This is the inevitable result of his just going with the concensuses of progressive 20-somethings and ideologues around him or else the agenda’d devious who pose as experts on matters that Obama simply doesn’t understand (like economics.)

Actually there is an Obama strategery…


We are a nation of idiots to have elected this government.

Oh, and if a guy would willingly blow himself to vapor with a suicide vest, what would keep him from voluntarily contracting Ebola and getting on a plane for New York City?

Connivin Caniff | August 29, 2014 at 1:16 pm

What if…what if… he wears white pants after Labor Day? That would be the last straw.

The Emperor’s new clothes – the fawn colored suit – is meant to soften the BS King’s icy, detached image, to encourage more…fawning over him. (Or was it banana republic colored?)

Was the “no strategy” part, as opposed to Britain’s PM Cameron’s clarifying the enemy and call to action speech, Obama’s first act of transparency? It seems to be a strange mix of narcissism, moral equivocation and hedging his future amnesty-penned-and-phoned bets.

The whole world knows that Obama has an exit strategy from foreign and domestic problems. Now, Obama wants the world to know him as a self-effacing (really, effete) monarch, a victim of poll numbers and of ISIS, Iran, Russia, etc. not listening to his blanching rhetoric, now spoken with matching pale suit.

You know that all these comments on Obama’s suit are going to start a PC trend against “suit-ism” w/ “suitcards” being played.

buckeyeminuteman | August 29, 2014 at 2:06 pm

The suit is nothing more than smoke and mirrors.

mumzieistired | August 29, 2014 at 3:13 pm

Not sure where it fits in on the Bad-Worse scale, but there’s another huge problem with what the president said yesterday.

Now ISIS knows we don’t have a strategy for dealing with them. Talk about boosting their confidence!

    Ragspierre in reply to mumzieistired. | August 29, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    Not according to some geniuses on the boob-tube.

    Obama’s declaration of “D’erp” was straight out of Sun Tzu…pure military genius.

    These poor idiots can’t tell someone shooting craps from a grand master chess player…

Obama came out of 20 years in the church run by what he called “his mentor”, where “God Damn America” was the ideology and strategy. They sided with the Sandinistas and still praise racist black liberation theology and Farrakhan. Holder’s troops in Ferguson show he is at war with us.

Going back, Obama was raised partly by a genuine communist (Frank M Davis) who was also described by Obama as a mentor. The administration currently has Muslim Brotherhood family in their DC system, and they praise Mao, Chavez, and Castro.

Obama was born in America, but never seemed to acquire any allegiance. His claims of being a constitutional lawyer are shallow compared to his demands for transformation and a constitution of “positive liberties”. Instead of limiting government and maintaining individual liberty, he thinks government should take care of people, which means wealth redistribution by force, from the productive to those that vote “communist”. He is willing to destroy our country to achieve those ends.

They are blatantly opening our borders to any and all, through deception and covert action. Holder shuts down any that dare check ID’s or take pictures. DC provides cover for the invasion, as they provide transport to inland cities.

Why should we believe Obama is merely asleep or misguided? He has efficiently turned over the ME to ISIS or other radical Islamists, and defeated our (relatively speaking) friends Mubarak and Gaddafi. He whispered sweet nothings to Russia pre-election, and will only supply the Ukraine with booties not bullets.

Our military took the 10% budget cut, and are now being decimated again and again. And yet none dare call it treason. Indeed, treason and impeachment do not poll well, because the nation watches sound bites from their MFM local news anchors, and we are stuck playing the news cycle game … at least until we are conquered. Obama is not an executive, he is a subversive.

Yes Obama has a very clear and simple policy. A deep and established one, one he is a faithful steward in upholding at every opportunity.

That foreign policy goal is very simple. very basic. One word captures it, a few more words make in a simple easy to comprehend legend.

The one word? “Chaos”. The legend: “Do anything that encourages chaos.”

I wrote just a few minutes ago about the DOJ of our tragic era: “The goal is “Community Organizing”. Please understand what that wonderfully positive term means, for a simple introspection into it will easily come to show that it means exactly opposite of what it at first glance seems to mean.

First consider the term “community”. Well, are there communities? Yes there are. Are they new? Some are new, most are not. It fact it is found upon a simple yet broad consideration of the various communities each of us will know from life, those communities in our towns, neighborhoods, states, nation and world — that nearly EVERY ONE is actually old, and many very old: Our nation, the US, is at least 238 years old. Our religions, our sects are of varying antiquity: hundreds and even thousands of years old. Our towns range from 200+ years to a few dozen years of age, our counties are many scores of years old.

And these communities are found on the most part to have been already well established, already very well organized.

Thus what can it mean to be a “community organizer”? In any of these old communities, that is in most communities. it can only mean one thing. To be a wrecker. a destroyer of established communities. For until that wrecking is complete, there are no (or very few) communities to organize.”

Obama is not absent a mission. In foreign affairs he has some personal goals too, these are sub-goals. Secondary targets. His college paper suggested one: unilateral nuclear disarmament. Another seems to be breaking the pride of the US, that pride such as some called “manifest destiny”. Another seems to be somehow grafting a Muslim heritage onto US history and creation, and also or separately enhancing the history of Muslim achievements, viz his directions to NASA on Muslim outreach.

But there is ONE goal above others. To foster chaos in the world. And thereby to allow the imagination of the Marxists, of the various strange(historically) sex movements , of the Juneteenthers (the grudge bearers of the long Negro civil rights movement), and of the fundamentalist Islam movements like the Thirteeners, full reign and froth.
