Foreign Policy: Trump vs Obama

Yesterday, in the close aftermath of the Isis bombing in Pakistan, Donald Trump made one of the more incredibly grandiose claims of this incredibly bizarre campaign season:  that only he could solve the war with Isis.

“I alone,” he boasted.

In this regard, he is so much like the Obama of 2008 that it is downright scary.

trump-pakistanAlmost eight years ago to the date, at a San Francisco fundraiser, Obama said, “…foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton or Senator McCain.”

After belittling Mrs. Clinton’s experience as First Lady as being ceremonial fluff, Obama went on to say that among the three candidates for President, only he could pass the 3 a.m. Leadership Test. Indeed, he alone possessed “the judgment, the temperament to ask the right questions, to weigh the costs and benefits of military action, who insists on good intelligence, who is not going to be swayed by the short-term politics.”  source

What a piece of work.

And as for the ultimate foreign policy test, the one John Kerry called, “passing the Global Test,” Obama proposed a diplomatic Manhattan Project of sorts, with Iran’s Mahmoud Amadinejad. The same Ahmadinejad who said his country’s objective was to destroy what he called corrupt western powers:  source

Our objective is to annihilate all corrupt powers that dominate our planet today,”

We  all know how that turned out.  Let me ask you, does anyone, other than the Obama administration, believe that the world is now safer place with the infamous “Iran Deal” in place?

Somehow, taking a college trip to Pakistan, living in Indonesia for four years as a child, and having poor relatives in Africa convinced Obama that he had the necessary gravitas to engage in foreign policy on behalf of the world’s only superpower.

Obama’s grandiosity surpasses mere cockiness and is unseemly, if not dangerous. That same grandiosity is exactly what I saw in Trump’s tweet about the Isis attacks on Christians in Pakistan.  Their rhetoric is different, but their over-confidence in their own unproven abilities is strikingly similar.

Greta Reams, Steams, and Dry Cleans Susan Rice

I happened to be watching Greta Van Susteren tonight as she absolutely skewered Susan Rice’s petulant comments about Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to a joint session of Congress next week.  On the Charlie Rose Show, Rice had stated that Bibi’s visit is  “destructive” to the relationship between the US and Israel.  

Ah…maybe she ought to look at her boss’ conduct if she wants to talk ‘destructive’ to the relationship.

Consider this..

1/ Remember when her boss, President Obama, got caught on a hot mike ‘trash talking’ PM Netanyahu with then French President Sarkozy? Does she not think THAT was destructive to the relationship? Insulting another world leader like that?

or how about this?

2/ When the Jewish deli got hit by terrorism in Paris in January, and PM Netanyahu and all those world leaders showed up in solidarity — where was President Obama? A no show! Does she think THAT was not destructive to the relationship? A no show for terrorism on a Jewish deli ?

or how about this?

3/ In October an Administration official called PM Netanyahu in a magazine article “chicken shit” and “a coward.” Does she not think THAT was destructive to the relationship?

And how about the fact that President Obama did not followup with an apology to PM Netanyahu on behalf of his Administration? Does she not think THAT was destructive to the relationship?

And by the way, was SHE the “Administration official” who called PM Netanyahu ‘coward’ and ‘chicken shit?’

and want more?

how about this?

4/ PM Netanyahu is desperately trying to protect his country from Iran getting a nuclear weapon….and is speaking to Americans via Congress..

– a/ Democrats are going to be a ‘no show’ to insult him and have already made that known….and

-b/ the VP, as President of the Senate says he is not showing up…and

-c/ President Obama won’t find 5 minutes to meet with the Prime Minister when he is here in DC.

Does she think THAT might be destructive to the relationship?

The is all because the White House is upset because Speaker Boehner did not tell them first before inviting PM Netanyahu. Do you know how insane that is to be upset about ‘manners’ and ‘protocol’ when the topic is NUCLEAR WEAPONS?

What kool aid is Susan Rice drinking?

ISIS Jobs Fair: Cretins only, please

isis-jobs

I saw this over at Free Republic, and it was too good not to share!

BTW, this has everything to do with Islam.  It’s woven into the very fabric of their lives, since Mo crawled out of the cave and killed his first infidel.

This President Needs to Eat his Spinach

I had to read this statement a couple of times to try and make some sense of it:

President Barack Obama has a moral responsibility to push back on the nation’s journalism community when it is planning to publish anti-jihadi articles that might cause a jihadi attack against the nation’s defenses forces, the White House’s press secretary said Jan. 12.

It still makes little sense to me that Obama is willing to sacrifice the First Amendment in order to mollify the Islamics.

It also reminded me of a cartoon that I watched as a child.  Popeye the Sailor certainly wasn’t concerned about offending the Imperial Japanese Navy when he sang, “You’re A Sap, Sap, Sap Mr. Jap.”

Call me an #AngryClinger

mo-1

You can call me an angry white man, clinging to my guns and religion.  I actually like this description.  It fits.  I’m an #AngryClinger.

I’m angry that death cult terrorists continue to kill and maim in the name of their religion and in the name of their god.

I’m mad that some Western theologists want to equate the god of the cultists with The LORD God Almighty.  It offends me.

By now, you’ve read about the latest mass murder in the name of the prophet of the death cult.  As more is learned, we will hear the same Western apologists making the same ridiculous statements that these murders have nothing to do with islam; that the murdered shouldn’t have offended the murderers; that a backlash against innocent moslems will occur by #angryclingers (who are basically islamophobes anyway); that conservative Christians are just as evil because they oppose special rights for homosexuals; and of course, that Israel is somehow to blame.

I have the solution to death cult terrorism, and it is very simple.  That doesn’t mean that it is in any way easy.  I’ll detail the solution in a future post, and when you read it, you’ll be amazed that no one thought of it before.  But, that’s for later.

Today’s exercise in evil by the death cult is only the most recent event that has made me angry.  I’m mad about several things:

  1. I’m mad that John Boehner is still Speaker of the House, and Congress is still for sale:  Business As Usual.
  2. I’m mad that some of the same people who said they would vote to replace Boehner, betrayed their supporters.
  3. I’m mad that Al Sharpton still owes an unpaid tax debt of over 4 million dollars, and the IRS has not moved to seize his assets or levy his income.
  4. I’m mad that nothing has been done about the politicization of the IRS, the EPA, the DOJ, BLM, ATF, VA, and others that have betrayed the public trust, committed acts of deception, perjury, obfuscation, concealment, political blackmail, to name a few, all with the knowledge and approval of the motherfucker in the White House.
  5. I’m mad that the 4th Estate has devolved into a 5th Column.
  6. I’m mad that the ones who see these things happening and want to hold the line against them are demonized and marginalized by this very same 5th Column.
  7. I’m mad that our government is over $18 Trillion in debt, with no end in sight, and the only way we are still managing to keep the lights on is because the Federal Reserve continues to monetize the debt through Quantitative Easing I, II, III, and soon, QE-IV.
  8. I’m mad that the above alphabet agencies continue to ignore lawful Constitutional oversight by the Congress, which of course is ignored by the 5th Column, and I’m mad that the Congress hasn’t raised hell about it.
  9. I’m mad that the racial divisions in our country have been stirred to the boiling point by professional agitators, race mongers, communists, and moslems, who have resorted to arson, assault, and assassination of police officers to achieve their goal of “fundamentally changing” our country.
  10. I’m mad that the 2 frontrunners for the 2016 Presidential election are named Bush and Clinton.

 

So, I’m an #AngryClinger, and I’m up to here. Tonight, I will say this prayer for serenity.

God, grant me the Serenity

To accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Cronyism Kills

Remember 2009?

The Obama regime promised a miracle economic recovery if only Congress would pass their mammoth economic stimulus bill.  Shovel-ready jobs.  Green, renewable energy.  Smart Policies.  Yada, yada, yada.

ebola=nurseThis occurred to me as I saw some of the new Democrat ads blaming the GOP for Ebola.  “Cuts Kill,” or something.

Some $80 BILLION in the stimulus package was devoted to green energy, much of which was directed to campaign donors and other friends of the regime.

In short order, many of those same companies began to fail.  As Ashe Schow notes:

So far, 34 companies that were offered federal support from taxpayers are faltering — either having gone bankrupt or laying off workers or heading for bankruptcy.

 

If you’re keeping score:  almost $8 Billion of the 2009 Obama stimulus bill went to campaign friendly green energy companies which are either failing, or in bankruptcy.

That’s enough to fund the CDC entirely for 15 months.

Cut’s Kill, my ass.

20 Smidgens

“The Obama administration has lost or destroyed e-mails for more than 20 witnesses, and in each case, the loss wasn’t disclosed to the National Archives or Congress for months or years, in violation of federal law,” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA).

prez-pezThe most recent scofflaw:  Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner
Joining Ms Tavenner in this Obama Administration Hall of Shame are:

  • Lois Lerner, Washington-based head of the IRS Exempt Organizations(who originally apologized in May 2013 for targeting conservative groups),
  • David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner
  • Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh,
  • Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe
  • Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens (who donated to President Obama’s 2012 campaign and  worked in the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati),
  • Nikole Flax, former chief of staff to IRS commissioner Steven Miller (Flax made 31 visits to the White House between July 12, 2010 and May 8, 2013),
  • Michelle Eldridge, IRS national media relations chief,
  • Nancy Heagney (Another Cincinnati-based Exempt Organizations official that worked under Lerner),
  • Julie Chen, agent,
  • Tyler Chumny, supervisory agent,
  • 9 others

 

digital evidenceEvidence must be collected and preserved to get any type of court to review whether laws have been broken. That job is impossible when the ones being investigated are the ones in power.  Lies, misdirection, stonewalling,  footdragging, and destruction of evidence:  We live in dark, evil, corrupt, lawless times.  It will get worse before it gets better.

I recall that a young Hillary Clinton was one of many Democrats crying bloody murder over 18 minutes of “lost” tape in the Watergate scandal, before she was fired by Jerry Zeifman. Why was she fired? In Zeifman’s own words:

“Because she was a liar.” … “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality,”

P.J. O’Rourke once said, “My Grandmother wouldn’t even speak the word ‘Democrat’ if there were children in the room, she’d say ‘bastards’ instead.”

Indeed.
