Obama’s new National Security Plan = Social Justice War
Downplays ‘existential’ global threats.
As all hell breaks loose across the Middle East, another member of the Obama administration is focusing on the important issues.

Susan Rice Calls for Climate Action, LGBT Equality in National Security Plan
National Security Advisor Susan Rice said the United States must take a longer view on national security, in a speech that focused as much on gender and LGBT equality and climate change as Islamic State terrorism and Russian aggression.
“The issues is not simply about when we should have started arming the Syrian rebels or whether we should provide lethal assistance to Ukraine,” Rice said in a speech to the Brookings Institution when introducing President Barack Obama’s 2015 National Security Strategy. “It’s about the nature of U.S. leadership for the future. With this national security strategy, we stake out a much larger role for America in shaping the world while anticipating the challenges to come.”…
She went on to frame the national security aspects of climate change, which she said the administration is addressing with its “groundbreaking climate commitment with China.”
“American leadership is addressing the very real threat of climate change. The science is clear,” she said. “The impacts of climate change will only worsen over time. Even longer droughts, more severe storms, more forced migration.”…
“We believe everyone should be able to speak their minds and practice their faith freely,” Rice said. “We believe that all girls deserve the very same opportunities as boys. We believe that all human beings are created equal and are worthy of the same love and respect, including our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender brothers and sisters.”
In the same appearance, Rice also cautioned the media against alarmism over global threats.

Susan Rice Denies ‘Existential’ Global Threats, Slams Media ‘Alarmism’
As global order implodes, White House national security advisor Susan Rice denied that the threats facing the United States are in any way “existential” — blaming that perception instead on media “alarmism.”
Rice spoke Friday at Washington, D.C.’s Brookings Institution, where she unveiled the Obama administration’s 2015 national security strategy.
“Too often, what’s missing here in Washington is a sense of perspective,” she said. “Yes, there is a lot going on. Still, while the dangers we face may be more numerous and varied, they are not of the existential nature we confronted during World War II or during the Cold War. We cannot afford to be buffeted by alarmism or an instantaneous news cycle.”

John F’n Kerry

Why did Obama and his appointed officials cross the road?
To arm the terrorists on the other side!
Stick Squeaker Boehner in with that crowd.
If this were a fictional story, and the three leftist stooges were the protagonists, and Boehner was the external conflict, there would be no story.
“the science is clear..”
Clear. An accounting term meaning ‘paid for’.
ObamaBlows on the heels of ObamaCares, both are revenue policies in the ObamaGreed stable, designed to capture and selectively redistribute private capital in order to purchase perceptions of goodwill, and compensate for policies far removed reality that devalue both capital and labor.
HEY! Don’t you believe in MORAL EQUIVALANCY? I mean, after all, “Christians” are as bad as non-Islamic muslims that burn people alive. All this is AMERICAS FAULT! If we hadn’t had all those colonies and stolen everything from the po’, everybody would love us and we could have that one world government that would bring peace and harmony and everybody singing kumbaya and drinking Cokes. It’s Obama’s vision (peace be upon him), that the U.S. be taken down a peg and not be a “superpower” anymore and by budda, HE IS GOING TO DO IT! He will, by his superpowers, make the U.S. into a socialist nirvana. Or kill every white person by trying to do it.
It’s Obama’s vision (
peacepiss be upon him),
Fixed it for you.
That LGBTQRSXYZ genital warming will put ISIL on it’s heels. You betcha!
No, rather “in heels” with a matching scarf to die for.
Fabulous, dah-ling. Simply FABulous…!!!
Ya’ll forgot to say “Cha Cha Heels!”
Please stay away from tall buildings!
So, climate action based on liberal indulgence of unscientific assumptions of uniformity and independence. Not equality, but rather selective exclusion in lieu of principled tolerance.
Throw another baby on the barby, Rice. That too is a Democrat principle.
She must be based on the 60’s Barbie doll:”Science is hard”.
One tends to wonder why the data that Schmidt, Jones, Hansen and Mann play with doesn’t conform to real data.
We don’t need no steenkin’ data!
Unfortunately, it is quite common for people to expand the scientific domain beyond any reasonable and rational limit. The scientific domain is actually very limited in both time and space. It does not even include all or most of planet Earth. The reason is that a chaotic process, or uncharacterized and unwieldy process, cannot be predicted, and can only be forecast within an indefinitely finite scope, where accuracy is inversely proportionate to the product of time and space offsets from an established frame of reference. The scientific method was designed to enforce/encourage that constraint through a requirement for deductive reasoning, observation, and reproduction, but people routinely indulge themselves with inference, assumptions of uniformity and independence, which lead them to reach conclusions far outside of the scientific domain, well into the philosophical domain, and at times unacknowledged submersion in the faith domain.
It’s difficult for people to acknowledge what they know, don’t know, and are likely incapable of knowing.
Ironically, people who will acknowledge their faith are more likely to distinguish between faith, philosophy, and science. One of the great advances of the Judeo-Christian faith is a separation of faith and science through establishment of God in an extra-universal realm. It stipulated that God established an underlying order (e.g. physical laws), provided a moral philosophy to guide development, and left humanity to discover the natural laws and practice the moral laws in order to improve their condition.
There are also the games played by special interests in order to marginalize or neutralize competitors.
Yessirrreeee, Susie Baby…Those Islamist Butchers ain’t nuthin’ compared to that danged man-made global warming..errr…changing…errrr…cooling…errrrrr…!!
Is it even theoretically possible to be as useless, stupid and loathsome as Obam-Bam and his Bunch?? I think not.
…which she said the administration is addressing with its “groundbreaking climate capitulation with China.”
The “extraneous BS foreign policy” articulated by a lying boob.
We get closer to the brink every day.
And can somebody please explain to me what the heck does the LGBT issue has to do with National Security ??
Still 639 days, 17 hours and 25 minutes more of this nonsense!!
ISIS is kidnapping, torturing and murdering people and Susan Rice is concerned about the climate? LGBT “issues”? Please…. Susan, shove your SJW crap right back up your @ss.
“We cannot afford to be buffeted by alarmism or an instantaneous news cycle.” That surely describes Climate Change aka Global Warming.
“Existential” has been so overused it’s about to become meaningless or inverted as is “infamous”.
Yep, dckubler, but doesn’t come near “ISSUE”(aka Ish-Shoes) or “CLOSURE” for massive overuse, misuse and utterly incorrect use.
At the top of my list of grossly overused words or phrases is “going forward”.
“The science is clear”, but clearly missing from her statement. Better to just skip that controversial part I guess, someone might question her.
The last thing clear to Susan Rice was that some stupid video caused a spontaneous attack that killed our Ambassador. Hillary said locals were just out for a walk in Benghazi, and decided it was a nice night for an RPG/mortar assault. Susan Rice confirmed Hillary’s story on five networks, since Susan was observing from a helicopter, that took a hit from an RPG, so you better stfu about our little hero.
The only groundbreaking deal with China is one that will get the US to shut down coal fired plants, while China keeps belching out the unscrubbed soot from theirs. And China will build their pipeline to Russia, even as we delay forever the XL pipeline. Such a deal.
CO2 is not the driver of any global warming that may not even be ongoing. Warming is good, and could open up the frozen tundra to food production. CO2 is free plant fertilizer, CO2 is green.
Here is yet another scientist that mocks the AGW profiteers, like Al “all the ice in the Arctic may be gone by 2013” Gore.
Would be nice if the rinos in Congress would act together to shut this nonsense down.
That would require they had a motive to do so, like being against it.
So the Muslim wackos who are currently running around chopping heads off, burning people alive, crucifying those who defy them, and flying into buildings do NOT pose an “existential threat,” yet the boogeyman known as “global warming/climate change,” which purportedly will occur at some unspecified point in the future, IS an “existential threat.”
Ooookaayy. I’d bet people who really believe that would be the first to [email protected] in their pants if they ever found themselves at the hands of some of those existentially non-threatening Muslim wackos ~
