WASHINGTON - We haven't heard the last of Hillary Clinton's attempts to separate herself, and her expected presidential candidacy, from Barack Obama's policies.
 
Her stinging put down of Obama's impotent foreign policies in Iraq and elsewhere were just the beginning of a carefully plotted campaign to persuade enough Americans that she's not an Obama clone. 
 
From the beginning, the number one problem that faced her long-planned candidacy is that she would follow in the footsteps of a failed presidency. Indeed, she could already hear the Republicans' 2016 campaign cry: "If you liked the Obama administration, you'll love what Hillary wants to do." 
 
Clinton's politically choreographed remarks earlier this week, in an interview with the Atlantic magazine, were but the first of many artful dodges to come. 
 
Dredging up Obama's long-forgotten description of his strategic foreign policy as "Don't do stupid stuff," she shot it down with this well-executed attack line: 
 
"Great nations need organizing principles, and 'Don't do stupid stuff' in not an organizing principle," she said. 
 
Clinton, whose timid, vacuous, super cautious record as secretary of State was mediocre at best, disgraceful at its worst, is the last person to talk about organizing foreign policy principles. 
 
She made a lot of speeches around the globe, and it is reported that she disagreed with Obama's escalated pull-out from Iraq and the way it was carried out. But she was loyal to his misguided policies, carried them out, and now is squirming over having to defend them. 
 
Still, her record on foreign policy matters is not one that that demonstrates she's ready to make foreign policy as the nation's chief executive. 
 
Let's start with the scandal in Benghazi, Libya, where the U.S. ambassador and and three other Americans were killed in the Consulate there in a full-scale terrorist attack. After a thorough investigation, the record shows her State Department ignored numerous pleas from the ambassador for added security there. 
Well Obama’s had a son after all.

It’s a strapping, weighty and very unhealthy mixture of the pent up discontent that is Obama’s America.

Yes, the man who once race-baited by pretending that Trayvon Martin was his own son, now dead and gone, is definitely the father of this version of our country. The likeness and resemblance is too striking for him not to be.

Congratulations Daddy!

“On Wednesday night,” reports the New York Times, “scores of police officers in riot gear and in armored trucks showed up to disperse protesters [in Ferguson] who had gathered on the streets near the scene of the shooting [of Michael Brown, 18]. Some officers perched atop the vehicles with their guns trained on the crowds while protesters chanted, ‘Hands up, don’t shoot.’”

Hands up, don’t shoot is good advice. Even for a big mouth president.

Because in my lifetime I’ve never seen a president shoot off his mouth so recklessly than Obama has…except of course in times when he all he does is shoot himself in the foot.

When he’s too busy for example dancing, vacationing, campaigning, or raising money—which, not coincidentally, are all activities that look alike to Obama—then the man whose mouth operates like Joe Biden’s shotgun, isn’t necessarily saying anything reckless, but rather doing reckless things instead.

“President Obama must really be teed off,” writes Dana Milbank in the Washington Post, “Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid.”

So Obama got mad and went to play golf. Twice.

That’s because Obama’s on a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, “a decision that, if not in the category of stupid stuff,” concludes Milbank, “could fit under the heading of ‘tone deafness.’”

I’m trying to decide which is worse for the country: Obama saying reckless things or doing reckless things?

Because as stupid and harmful as his inane chatter is to the country, the president has difficulty accomplishing even the tasks he presumably cares about, like a foreign policy that works. So “doing reckless things” has not always been very effective for Obama.

But, I gotta go with the “doing reckless things” option as the worse of the two right now.

I think that going on vacation is the best thing that Obama can do today. Because this child that is the Ferguson riots was not born of talk, but in the hosing of America by Obama and the rest of his firemen. The riots are the violent fruits of the womb that are born when a country gets screwed—hard.

And guess what? It only takes one time for the country to get a little bit pregnant. What’s being born of our times ultimately, however, no one can really tell as of yet.

Yet this much is true though: Angry children tend to give birth to angry children, and the sins of the fathers are visited on the latest generation.

“A nation like a woman is not forgiven the unguarded hour,” wrote Karl Marx, in one of the few true statements Marx got right, “in which the first rake that tries can take her by force.”

Obama hasn’t gotten what he wanted by talking. He hasn’t gotten what he wanted by actions either, reckless or otherwise because he's too lazy.

There always remains force however as an option of any government in crisis, especially a government too lazy to be legitimate.

And make no mistake: This is a government deep in crisis and too lazy to be legitimate.

So guard the hour my friends.

And keep Obama on vacation. Let him screw his handicap and not the country.

Obama halted transfer of Hellfire missiles to Israel

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

Israel is in the fight for her life, and Obama cuts off anti-armor missiles during a time of war — while at the same time, he gave the Gaza savages close to 50 million dollars in aid.

That defines who and what this President is.

It would be “impossible” for Israel to go around the White House’s back to get a resupply of arms from the Pentagon, former Israeli ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, told Ynet on Thursday, in response to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

The sources noted that Israel had requested the transfer of ammunitions directly from the Pentagon, without receiving the approval of the White House or State Department officials.
According to the sources, White House officials were concerned about Israel’s use of artillery, instead of precision-guided munitions in the more densely populated areas in the Gaza...
 
     

Morsi’s wife threatens to publish letters from Hillary Clinton, exposing “special relationship” between Muslim Brotherhood and Obama Administration

/ Jihad Watch
 
 
Hillary Clinton, Mohammed MorsiThe wife of former Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi is the latest Muslim Brotherhood “insider” to threaten to expose the special relationship between Morsi and the Obama administration—a relationship the latter insists never existed.

Nagla Mahmoud, Morsi’s wife, is reportedly angry at some statements recently made by Hillary Clinton, including that Morsi was “na├»ve” and “unfit for Egypt’s presidency,” as reported by Arabic media.

In the words of El-Mogaz News, Morsi’s wife “is threatening to expose the special relationship between her husband and Hillary Clinton, after the latter attacked the ousted [president], calling him a simpleton who was unfit for the presidency.  Sources close to Nagla confirmed that she has threatened to publish the letters exchanged between Morsi and Hillary.”

The report continues by saying that Nagla accuses Hillary of denouncing her former close ally, the Brotherhood’s Morsi, in an effort to foster better relations with his successor, Egypt’s current president, Sisi—even though, as Nagla laments, “he [Morsi] was faithful to the American administration.”

Earlier, the son of Khairat al-Shatter—another top ranking Brotherhood member who was arrested during the June 2013 revolution that ousted Morsi—made similar assertions, threatening to expose documents that would “undermine his [U.S. president Obama’s] political future and land him in prison.”

Despite all these similar threats from Brotherhood insiders, and despite all the other evidence, the Obama administration insists that its relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood was no more special than its relationships to other Egyptian parties.

GOP Braces for Obama Executive Action on Immigration
By Melanie Batley and Sandy Fitzgerald
 
President Barack Obama will be taking a one-day break from his vacation on Martha's Vineyard to travel to Washington on Monday, prompting speculation about a possible announcement on immigration or a visit from a foreign leader.

The White House has so far denied any suggestions that the president may announce new executive orders to deal with the immigration crisis, according to The Hill.

"[We are] not anticipating a major announcement on immigration when the president is in Washington," said spokesman Eric Schultz, according to The Hill. He added that the administration did not "anticipate any major significant news developments out of Washington those few days."

The statements have not stopped lawmakers from speculating that the president intends to make an imminent announcement on immigration, with the GOP issuing strong warnings about the consequences should he choose to act unilaterally.

"I'm very concerned that he might do that," Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told "America's Forum" host J.D. Hayworth Thursday on Newsmax TV. "The information that I'm getting is that he was likely to, but now there's a sense that the timing of it might mean that he may be a little less or even on whether he does the stroke of his pen."

But if Obama "uses his pen to conduct the business of the United States Congress while we're out of session, it will bring about a Constitutional crisis," King said.

"The president doesn't command the Congress as a law," said King. "He needs to come and say, 'I'd like to have you pass this because I think it's good for the country', use his persuasive powers and not the intimidation powers."

If Obama does indeed us executive powers on immigration — including a declaration of immigrant amnesty — "Congress should go back into immediate special session to take this up," said King.

Meanwhile, Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions said in a statement on Wednesday that "recent developments suggest the president's planned executive amnesty could be increasingly imminent and broad in scope, according to the National Review Online.

"Recent developments suggest the president's planned executive amnesty could be increasingly imminent and broad in scope. House Democrat Leader Pelosi — clearly one of the White House's closest allies — has just urged the president to issue 'the broadest possible' executive actions," Sessions said.

"Open-borders groups have grown bolder and louder in their unlawful demands, launching a campaign for the president to 'go big,' and demanding that he 'stand up' to Congress and 'expand DACA,'" he added.

"It is chilling to consider now that these groups, frustrated in their aims by our Constitutional system of government, are plotting with the Obama administration to collect their spoils through executive fiat," he said.

Sessions said the Senate should vote on the House's measure that would stop Obama from expanding DACA or issuing work permits to illegal immigrants, and has urged voters to press their senators about voting against any excepted executive orders on immigration.

Washington Chokes The Truth With Lies

Washington Chokes The Truth With Lies
SCREENSHOT
A Russian aid convoy bound for eastern Ukraine stopped just short of the border Thursday.
Are Western propagandists fooling anyone but themselves?

The latest absurdity coming out of Ukraine, the EU and Washington is that the humanitarian aid that Russia and the Red Cross are trucking into the former Russian territories that comprise eastern Ukraine is a trick, a deception, a pretext for Russia’s invasion forces. Such a preposterous lie tells us that Western propagandists have no respect whatsoever for the intelligence of Western peoples.

Even a moron should understand that if Russia wants to send military forces into Ukraine, Russia doesn’t need any pretext, much less a joint humanitarian venture with the Red Cross. Eastern Ukraine, following Crimea’s lead, has already voted both for independence from Kiev and in favor of rejoining Russia. If Russia needed an excuse, the decisions by eastern Ukrainians made months ago suffice. But Russia needs no excuse to rescue Russians from being slaughtered by Washington’s stooges like Palestinians in Gaza.

By its inaction, the Russian government is providing Washington’s vassal states in Europe time to comprehend that Washington, not Russia, is the problem and that Washington intends for the cost of its conflict with Russia to fall on Europeans.

The opposition from Washington, Washington’s EU vassals and Washington’s stooges in Kiev to the inflow of humanitarian aid is due to the West’s desperate attempt to keep the world from knowing about the massive destruction by Washington and its stooges of civilian lives, housing and infrastructure in those former Russian territories that are directly threatened by the Russophobic extremists whom Washington has installed in power in Kiev.

The Western presstitute media has added yet another failure to its long, inglorious history by failing to report the atrocities inflicted on a people who see no future for themselves in a country ruled by murderous Russophobic criminals installed in power by Washington.

The demented NATO generals, Pentagon chief and U.S. senators are spreading hysteria about a looming Russian invasion not only of Ukraine but also of the Baltic states, Poland — indeed, all of Europe. This hysteria is engulfing the West despite the total lack of evidence of any sign whatsoever of Russian preparations or motives for such invasions. The lie is being spread by Washington that Putin intends to reconstitute the Soviet Empire. This is the same Putin who had the former Russian province of Georgia in his hands and let it go.

Washington’s propaganda is working. Polls reveal that a majority of Americans — who should be awake by now after being lied to about Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria and Iran — have again, in their infinite gullibility, fallen victim to the propaganda and regard Russia as a threat.

Among the misinformed and propagandized American population, the question of the day is: “How are we going to stop the Russians?” Thus has the corrupt and deceitful Obama regime again prepared Americans for war.

The hope for peace is that the Russian counter-sanctions, a response to the sanctions against Russia that Washington forced its European vassals to implement, will end up falling on the deluded American taxpayers. The Polish government has demanded that Washington purchase the apples and agricultural products that Washington has made impossible for Poland to sell to Russia. As Poland is Washington’s choice for the U.S. missile base directed at Russia, the Polish government has leverage. Once Washington gives in to Poland, Washington will be faced with similar demands from hard-hit Greece and Austria and from the rest of Europe to compensate Europeans for the costs that Washington’s sanctions have imposed on its vassal populations.

The fraud perpetuated on the world by the United States in the 21st century is extraordinary. Nothing comparable has ever been witnessed in history. Not only are there the frauds of the numerous wars (Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, almost Iran and Washington’s illegal military actions within the borders of Pakistan and Yemen), but also the vast financial frauds perpetuated on the world. Among the costs of Wall Street’s frauds are the European debt crisis, the infringements of national sovereignty of European countries by the International Monetary Fund bailouts of sovereign debt and the impoverishment of “rescued” Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland, along with Eastern Europe.

One day, the Europeans will wake up. When they do, they will realize that Washington does nothing for them except to protect them from a nonexistent “Russian threat,” while imposing dramatic costs upon them by employing Europeans as levies in Washington’s war for hegemony over the world.

Sooner or later, Europeans must realize that this role assigned to them by Washington is not in their interest and leads directly to World War III in which Europeans will be the first casualties.

Op-ed:
More blood will flow even as al-Maliki steps down
By: Diane Sori

"I announce to you today that I am withdrawing my candidacy in deference to my brother, Haider al-Abadi, in the highest interest of the country."
- Al-Maliki's announcement that he would NOT seek a third term as Iraqi Prime Minister

As ISIS continues its march across the Iraqi landscape, the man at whose feet Obama has placed blame has announced that he is stepping down, but doing so on his own terms NOT on Obama's...and doing so on the same day that Obama declared the ISIS siege that trapped thousands in the Sinjar Mountains to be over.

And so Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki will step down. The man many feared would initiate a coup...the man who threatened to file a court challenge on the grounds that the procedure for choosing his successor was unconstitutional...the man who shouldered the brunt of Obama's finger pointing and words of accusation that it was his Shi'ite-controlled government...a government overloaded with his Shi'ite brethren holding key command positions...that very man and his government became in the world's eyes the cause of most of the ills that have befallen Iraq. And that man became the accused as the direct cause of the minority Sunnis sympathizing with the armed Sunni extremists...with the barbarians known as ISIS.

And with ISIS' incursion into Iraq continuing to reach across wide swaths of the country, intense pressure was put on al-Maliki to step down...intense pressure from within his own Da'wa Party...intense pressure from different populist factions within Iraq itself...intense pressure from neighboring Arab countries... intense pressure from Iraq's most revered Shi'ite clerics, and of course the most intense of pressure of all from the man Iraq's collapse is really the fault of...from the man who, as always, must deflect blame off of himself and place it elsewhere...that man being Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

Obama...the man who announced to the enemy the date when American troops would be leaving the country...the man who talks of helping but who refuses to 'shock and awe' the ISIS barbarians back into the Dark Ages... that man is indeed the main cause of the internal Iraqi tensions that have now reached a boiling point...a boiling point that reached critical level after the ISIS capture of Mosul in June, and after the collapse of four divisions of the Iraqi army...a boiling point that led to al-Maliki's finally stepping down.

Haider al-Abadi has been named as his successor and is also a member of the Da'wa Party...the same Da'wa that has Obama's brother Malik as the secretary of its so-called 'charitable' branch...the same Da'wa that Lois Lerner gave 501(c)(3) status to. However, on the plus side, Maliki's decision to step down allows al-Abadi to form a new government...a government that might be more inclusive than Maliki's...a government that many hope can hold Iraq together as they try to hold ground against the brutal extremist fighters of ISIS. And as Obama made it clear to al-Maliki that he 'expected' him to step down, he thankfully stopped short of making any future U.S. military support against ISIS a condition of him doing so.

And as the old saying goes, 'even a broken clock is right twice a day.'

But isn't it quite the coincidence that with al-Maliki now having just 30 days to serve as Iraq's caretaker as well as its top military commander before he officially steps down... isn't it odd that as soon as al-Abadi's new government is in place that 'suddenly' there will be an increase in U.S. aid coming Iraq's way. Coincidence I don't think so as the words 'political blackmail' come to mind. "We are prepared to consider additional political, economic, and security options as Iraq starts to build a new government," Secretary of State John 'Swiftboat' Kerry said upon al-Maliki's announcement.

A coincidence of convenience I would say...but what type of aid will Obama give to Iraqi's new government as they continue to battle ISIS and try to save the innocents caught in their crosshairs. Will it be like Obama's aid to the Yazidis trapped on Sinjar Mountain where he allowed the dropping of aid packages that became useless as they exploded upon impact... packages that were dropped minus parachutes that would have allowed them to land safely. And we know that aid won't be a campaign of much needed 'shock and awe'...that it will be a continuing of 'limited air strikes' because to do otherwise might 'accidently' cause collateral damage to the brethren...to the brethren that actually side with the barbarians...to the brethren Obama holds allegiance of sorts to.

So if NOT true aid needed what exactly will it be...it seems any aid forthcoming will be as counter-productive as Obama announcing our date of withdrawal...it seems it will be the counter-productive but the oh so politically correct withholding of much needed 'boots on the ground.' And we know whatever it is will NOT be anything of substance to protect Iraq's religious minorities...to protect those NOT of the islamic persuasion... to protect those that for the first time ever the Pope says are in need of protection...in need of military protection. And what type of aid will be given to the Kurds from the north...the very forces that recently helped half of the Yazidi escape from their mountain 'prison' as that was done by the YPG, a Syrian Kurdish rebel faction, who crossed from Syria to help rescue them...will it be true military aid of guns, weapons, and rockets...I'm NOT holding my breath for that for I fear the best it will be might be a token weapon or two.

Sadly, the concept of what is true aid is NOT only lost on Barack HUSSEIN Obama but is a concept as foreign to him as the concept of leaving Americans behind to die is to us. We know true aid comes from America's heart as America helps take care of the world...and does so as Barack HUSSEIN Obama helps to destroy it. And as Obama loses the peace that American blood was spilled for, the Iraqi people become the biggest losers of all...and America takes another hit to the gut by those out to kill us all.
