Obama, the Washington Navy Yard Massacre, Obama, The Economy, and More

Even the New York Times Maureen Dowd has soured on Obama, after he went ahead with a "hyperpartisan" attack-the-GOP speech while the Navy Yard attacker(s) hadn't yet been brought down.

And even the Washington Post, a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat-supporting rag, is whining about Obama: "...the president lacks any political capital on the Hill — among members of either party." And- notes (with some chagrin) that there's been a 60% increase in the amount of ocean covered in ice recently. Yup, you heard it-- global warming in reverse is happening. Oh, dang.

But wait, there's more...also from the WaPo Obama-loving media...

"I don’t know what the opposite of the Midas Touch is, but that’s what Obama has."

But wait, there's more....

So you, the commander-in-chief, were making a joke as a deadly attack was taking place at a nearby military base. It’s hard to imagine a more tasteless moment in presidential history.

Fortunately, not many people heard your obscenity, because the cable networks had bailed to cover the slaughter.

Yet you plodded on and soon found your patronizing groove, allowing that some Republicans are “decent folks.” Of course, to earn that honor, they have to “step up,” meaning agree with you.

The rest was predictable— how you’re focused on the jobs crunch, the deficit, blah blah blah. Naturally, you reminded us that you won the election. Thanks for clearing that up.

The speech, then, was a routine summary of your worldview—Obama good, everybody else bad, except those who agree with Obama.

It’s the timing that I can’t get over. The fact that you went ahead before police had released the full number of dead or wounded is breathtaking.

Heroic law-enforcement agents still were plucking terrified survivors off rooftops with helicopters and hunting for what they thought was an accomplice.

The unknowns — including who did it, why and whether the shooting was a terrorist act — had so unnerved the Capitol that Congress was in lockdown most of the day.

Yet news reports say there was not even a discussion in your office about whether to postpone the speech.

Again, shades of Benghazi. Your disappearance during the attack on Sept. 11th of last year still has not been explained. We know you had no contact with your Defense Secretary after about 6 p.m., and presumably went to sleep even as four Americans were being killed in the Libyan deathtrap.

The next day, you spoke in the Rose Garden as your aides spread the lie that the attack was the spontaneous outgrowth of a demonstration against an anti-Muslim video. You concluded your remarks by vowing that “justice will be done,” then hopped on Air Force One for a campaign trip to Las Vegas.

Bhengazi.
The debacle-that-is-ObamaCare-that-already-raised-my-personal-healthcare-premiums-by-$1000-a-year-before-anything-took-effect.
Syria.

Those are the lies/incompetencies/mistakes for which Obama will go down in history.

Oh, and Syria? Read why the immolation of Syria, one way or the other, is the final step in the disintegration of the Middle East. Written by Dr. Condoleeza Rice. Ten short months ago.

She warned that Syria isn't just "another Iraq." Far worse. And she urged the U.S, then, to "vet" the opposition rebels first. Sadly, that time has passed, and thousands of radical jihadists from other countries have descended on Syria and all but taken over the rebel forces. Something Rice also warned about, ten months ago:

"Certainly there are risks [in supporting the Syrian rebels]. After more than a year of brutal conflict, the most extreme elements of the opposition — including al-Qaeda — have been empowered. Civil wars tend to strengthen the worst forces. The overthrow of Assad could indeed bring these dangerous groups to power."

Now, it's been almost two years of brutal conflict, and Al-Qaeda has most definitely been allowed to come to power there. Rice warned the U.S. to act, ten months ago. Now, may be too late. She warned us then:

"...the breakdown of the Middle East state system is a graver risk. Iran will win, our allies will lose, and for decades the region’s misery and violence will make today’s chaos look tame. War is not receding in the Middle East. It is building to a crescendo."

That crescendo is already here. The world, and most importantly, our enemies, know what a weak President you are, Mr. Obama. Thanks, Obama, for being the inept national figurehead you've been all this time, while spiking the football of having killed bin Laden. Look what you've led us, and the world, into.

History will record that you couldn't be a worse world leader/U.S. President than you've already proven to be. And that would be the case whether you were all black, or all white, instead of half of each. The color of your skin matters not, to me or to the world.

I just wonder how many generations it will take for all to recognize that truth.

Still think Obama did a great job "disarming" Syria and neutralizing the problems there?

Think again:

"...the final phase of the comedy played out in Geneva, the site of grave Cold War meetings (it is odd that Obama accepted this site given its symbolism), where the Russians agreed in some unspecified way on an uncertain time frame to do something about Syria's chemical weapons. Obama promised not to take action that would have been ineffective anyway, and that was the end of it.

"In the end, this agreement will be meaningful only if it is implemented. Taking control of 50 chemical weapons sites in the middle of a civil war obviously raises some technical questions on implementation. The core of the deal is, of course, completely vague. At the heart of it, the United States agreed not to ask the U.N. Security Council for permission 
to attack in the event the Syrians renege. It also does not clarify the means for evaluating and securing the Syrian weapons. The details of the plan will likely end up ripping it apart in the end. But the point of the agreement was not dealing with chemical weapons, it was to buy time and release the United States from its commitment to bomb something in Syria."

~ George Friedman, chairman of Stratfor

So Obama lucked out and dodged his own bullets. This time. But he weakened the United States of America in the long run:

"The result is what we have seen over the past month with regard to Syria: A constant tension between ideology and strategy that caused the Obama administration to search for ways to do contradictory things. This is not a new phenomenon in the United States, and this case will not reduces its objective power. But it does create a sense of uncertainty about what precisely the United States intends. When that happens in a minor country, this is not problematic. In the leading power, it can be dangerous."
In other words, The United States of America, as long as Obama is "in charge", has no teeth. No "big stick." Nothing but big talk.

As if that isn't bad enough, the Congressional Budget Office just concluded that:

"[it] now expects national debt to reach 100% of [Gross Domestic Product] GDP by 2038, on its way to 250% by 2088. (It was 39% when President Bush left office.)

"...if anything, the results will be worse, since the budget office simply assumes, for example, that ObamaCare's costs don't explode and that all its dubious cost-cutting measures actually work. Both are unlikely.

"..its own numbers make clear that out-of-control spending is the real culprit.

"...In other words, while Obama promised that health care reform would help solve the nation's long-term deficit crisis, it is, in fact, greatly exacerbating it."

Can it get any worse? Oh. Yeah.

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
